Spring, when the earth tilts closer to the sun, runs a strict timetable of flowers.
I acknowledge the four elements. Water in the North; incense to recognize the air in the East; flowers for the earth in the South; a candle for light from the West. It helps me keep perspective.
When I heard that the bees were in trouble, the fact that they're disappearing and not coming back to the hive, which is a big issue, since a third of the food we eat comes from plants, I figured you couldn't tell the story of the bees without the story of the flowers and how they basically have evolved together for over 150 years.
A fox is a wolf who sends flowers.
Without butterflies, the world would soon have few flowers. There is enough room in the sky for all flyers.
I hate flowers - I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move.
If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers.
I take care of my flowers and my cats. And enjoy food. And that's living.
A cynic is a man who, when he smells flowers, looks around for a coffin.
H. L. Mencken

Love proves itself by deeds, so how am I to show my love? Great deeds are forbidden me. The only way I can prove my love is by scattering flowers, and these flowers are every little sacrifice, every glance and word, and the doing of the least actions for love.
Therese of Lisieux

Works of art often last forever, or nearly so. But exhibitions themselves, especially gallery exhibitions, are like flowers; they bloom and then they die, then exist only as memories, or pressed in magazines and books.
Fractal geometry is everywhere, even in lines drawn in the sand. It's the cycle of life... You see fractals in plants, in flowers. Within the human lung are branches within branches.
What ye have been ye still shall be, When we are dust the dust among, O yellow flowers!
Henry Austin Dobson

I was taught to confront things you can't avoid. Death is one of those things. To live in a society where you're trying not to look at it is stupid because looking at death throws us back into life with more vigour and energy. The fact that flowers don't last for ever makes them beautiful.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
