Flower Quotes

The flower has no weekday self, dressed as it always is in Sunday clothes.

Malcolm de Chazal

The little wind-flower, whose just opened eye Is blue as the spring heaven it gazes at.

William Cullen Bryant

Pure at heart: to be like a flower that blooms as gloriously, brilliantly in a secluded wild wood, not seen and praised.

Vanna Bonta

So peace will come again on Earth but a peace unlike aught known before. Then will the will-to-good flower forth as understanding And understanding blossom as goodwill in men.

Alice A. Bailey

There is no royal flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it for if I have accomplished anything in life it is because I have been willing to work hard.

Madam C.J. Walker

Each bud flowers but once and each flower has but its minute of perfect beauty; so, in the garden of the soul each feeling has, as it were, its flowering instant, its one and only moment of expansive grace and radiant kingship. Each star passes but once in the night through the meridian over our heads and shines there but an instant; so, in the heaven of the mind each thought touches its zenith but once, and in that moment all its brilliancy and all its greatness culminate. Artist, poet, or thinker, if you want to fix and immortalize your ideas or your feelings, seize them at this precise and fleeting moment, for it is their highest point. Before it, you have but vague outlines or dim presentiments of them. After it you will have only weakened reminiscence or powerless regret; that moment is the moment of your ideal.

Henri-Frdric Amiel

Love has its own instinct, finding the way to the heart, as the feeblest insect finds the way to its flower, with a will which nothing can dismay nor turn aside.

Honor de Balzac

A kiss without a hug is like a flower without fragrance.

Maltese Proverb

Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air.

Thomas Gray

Flowers are lovely; love is flower-like; Friendship is a sheltering tree.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Sincerity is not a spontaneous flower nor is modesty either.

Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

Paradox is the poisonous flower of quietism, the iridescent surface of the rotting mind, the greatest depravity of all.

Thomas Mann

I have loved flowers that fade, Within whose magic tents Rich hues have marriage made With sweet unmemoried scents: A honeymoon delight, A joy of love at sight, That ages in an hour My song be like a flower!

Robert Seymour Bridges

Life is the flower for which love is the honey.

Victor Hugo

Out of this nettle, danger, we pluck this flower, safety.

William Shakespeare
