Flower Quotes

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

Malcolm de Chazal

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

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

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

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.

Madam C.J. Walker

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!

William Shakespeare

Each person is like a beautiful flower growing in Gods garden. Every soul is a child of creation, and is worthy of all the blessings and beauties of the gift of life.

Thomas Gray

Rabindranath Tagore

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.

Buddha

Each flower is a soul blossoming out to nature.

Gerard De Nerval

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

If you have patience, then you'll also have love. Patience leads to love. If you forcefully open the petals of a bud, you won't be able to enjoy its beauty and fragrance. Only when it blossoms by following its natural course, will the beauty and fragrance of a flower unfold.

Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

Robert Fortune

Martha Graham

I did not want to be a tree, a flower or a wave. In a dancer's body, we as audience must see ourselves, not the imitated behavior of everyday actions, not the phenomenon of nature, not exotic creatures from another planet, but something of a miracle.

Martha Graham

The career of a sage is of two kinds: He is either honored by all in the world, Like a flower waving its head, Or else he disappears into the silent forest.

Lao Tzu
