Stretching his hand up to reach the stars, too often man forgets the flowers at his feet.
My closest friend, who died not long ago, is buried near Marx's grave in Highgate cemetery, so I see the gaggle of admirers laying roses at the foot of his tombstone regularly. I have never been tempted to leave flowers there myself. Great theories, shame about the practice. Marx did many things. But inventing class was not one of them.
If you allow one single germ, one single seed of slavery to remain in the soil of America... that germ will spring up, that noxious weed will thrive, and again stifle the growth, wither the leaves, blast the flowers and poison the fair fruits of freedom.
People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.

Robert A. Heinlein

It's been proven by quite a few studies that plants are good for our psychological development. If you green an area, the rate of crime goes down. Torture victims begin to recover when they spend time outside in a garden with flowers. So we need them, in some deep psychological sense, which I don't suppose anybody really understands yet.
Little things seem nothing, but they give peace, like those meadow flowers which individually seem odorless but all together perfume the air.
Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.
A. A. Milne
You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.
Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
Henry Ward Beecher
No man can taste the fruits of autumn while he is delighting his scent with the flowers of spring.
At present, I am mainly observing the physical motion of mountains, water, trees and flowers. One is everywhere reminded of similar movements in the human body, of similar impulses of joy and suffering in plants.
I think gardens are fantastic, and I'd love to draw and design and stuff like that. I love just planting flowers during the summer. There's something very humble about it, and natural and beautiful.
Johnny Depp is like a brother to me. We have matching tattoos on our backs - Charles Baudelaire, the flowers of evil, this giant skeleton thing. It's kind of a secret. People say to us, 'Why did you get that?' And we say, 'No reason.'
At my age flowers scare me.
You know, maybe I was just born in the wrong time, but I love all things romantic. Puffy understands that. For my last birthday, he covered my hotel room floor with rose petals and had flowers and candles all over the room.

The earth laughs in flowers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.
