Earth laughs in flowers.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Hamatreya"
I will be the gladdest thing Under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one. ~Edna St. Vincent Millay, "Afternoon on a Hill"
'Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes! ~William Wordsworth, "Lines Written in Early Spring," Lyrical Ballads, 1798
The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks. ~Tennessee Williams
Perfumes are the feelings of flowers, and as the human heart, imagining itself alone and unwatched, feels most deeply in the night-time, so seems it as if the flowers, in musing modesty, await the mantling eventide ere they give themselves up wholly to feeling, and breathe forth their sweetest odours. Flow forth, ye perfumes of my heart, and seek beyond these mountains the dear one of my dreams!
~Heinrich Heine, "The Hartz Journey" (1824), Pictures of Travel, translated from German by Charles Godfrey Leland, 1855
Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.
The lovely flowers embarrass me, They make me regret I am not a bee – ~Emily Dickinson, 1864
