"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet"
"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free." Michelangelo
"The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat'ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright."
"The rose does best as a rose. Lilies make the best lilies. And look! You - the best you around!"
"There is a garden in her eyes where roses and white lilies flow."
"An orchid in a deep forest sends out its fragrance even if no one is around to appreciate it."
"The earth laughs in flowers."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
