Us sing and dance, make faces and give flower bouquets, trying to be loved. You ever notice that trees do everything to git attention we do, except walk?
The smallest flower is a thought, a life answering to some feature of the Great Whole, of whom they have a persistent intuition.
Honore de Balzac
The career of a sage is of two kinds: He is either honored by all in the world, Like a flower waving its head, Or else he disappears into the silent forest.
Happiness is the natural flower of duty.
Her body calculated to a millimeter to suggest a bud yet guarantee a flower.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Taste and love are not the servants of the will. Love is and must be free. It rises from the heart like perfume from a flower.
Robert Green Ingersoll
We were born to die and we die to live. As seedlings of God, we barely blossom on earth; we fully flower in heaven.
Russell M. Nelson
Very often, people are obsessed with what others think of them. It's like if a flower wants to be a cactus or a palm but it's not. A flower is a flower, and that's enough. That's all you have to do is be a flower.
A flower doesn't love you or hate you, it just exists.
A weed is but an unloved flower.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
One could not pluck a flower without troubling a star.
Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time.
The flower that smells the sweetest is shy and lowly.
I decided that if I could paint that flower in a huge scale, you could not ignore its beauty.
The Amen of nature is always a flower.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it - a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand - as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash between the two, it's bad art.
Even Helen Keller, who was born blind and deaf, could see God. No doubt, in her silent darkness, every fragrant flower, every ray of the warm sun, every taste that touched her tongue told her that there was a God who created all things. Jodie Foster shouldn't therefore be surprised that people are surprised that she's an atheist.
I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
A city is where you can sign a petition, boo the chief justice, fish off a pier, gaze at a hippopotamus, buy a flower at the corner, or get a good hamburger or a bad girl at 4 A.M. A city is where sirens make white streaks of sound in the sky and foghorns speak in dark grays. San Francisco is such a city.
When the flower blooms, the bees come uninvited.
The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him.
Give fools their gold, and knaves their power; let fortune's bubbles rise and fall; who sows a field, or trains a flower, or plants a tree, is more than all.
John Greenleaf Whittier
I spent my childhood clad in 1970s hand-me-downs, primarily from male cousins, which mainly consisted of a selection of beige, brown and orange dungarees. That, combined with a perfectly round pudding-bowl haircut, made me look, on a good day, like a cross between Ann Widdecombe, one of the Flower Pot Men, and a monk.
The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
When I wrote the eight fairy tales that appear in 'Horse, Flower, Bird' I was working toward a completely new form of artistic expression, trying to create a new kind of tale that also felt vintage: innocent and childlike, but haunted. I tried to write a picture-less picture book.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
William Arthur Ward

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
