Flower Quotes

A young bride is like a plucked flower; but a guilty wife is like a flower that had been walked over.

Honore de Balzac

The spring's already at the gate With looks my care beguiling; The country round appeareth straight A flower-garden smiling.

Heinrich Heine

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

Proverb

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world.

Unknown

The smallest flower is a thought, a life answering to some feature of the Great Whole, of whom they have a persistent intuition.

Honore De Balzac

Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.

D. H. Lawrence

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

Buddha

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, old time is still a-flying: And this same flower that smiles today tomorrow will be a dying.

Robert Herrick

By plucking her petals, You do not gather the beauty of the flower.

Rabindrath Tagore

The one good thing to be said about announcing yourself as a writer in the colonial Canadian fifties is that nobody told me I couldn't do it because I was a girl. They simply found the entire proposition ridiculous. Writers were dead and English, or else extremely elderly and American; they were not sixteen years old and Canadian. It would have been worse if I'd been a boy, though. Never mind the fact that all the really stirring poems I'd read at that time had been about slaughter, mayhem, sex and death poetry was thought of as existing in the pastel female realm, along with embroidery and flower arranging. If I'd been male I would probably have had to roll around in the mud, in some boring skirmish over whether or not I was a sissy.

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

The tints of autumn...a mighty flower garden blossoming under the spell of the enchanter, frost.

John Greenleaf Whittier

The tiniest flower is a thought, a life which corresponds to certain lineaments of the Great Whole, of which they have a constant intuition.

Honor de Balzac

The bee fertilizes the flower it robs.

Charles Austin Beard

The ultimate source of energy, the sun is ready to set. The leaves of the blooming lotus flower in the pond are losing their lustre. A bumblebee, sitting on that lotus is enjoying the romantic pleasure and murmuring passionate songs.

Manmohan Acharya

When asked about Quraysh, Imam Ali replied that amongst them Bani Mukhzum are like sweet scented flower of Quraysh; their men are good to talk to and their women prove very good wives; Bani Abdush Shams are very intelligent and very prudent but we (of Bani Hashim) are very generous and very brave to face death. Bani Abdush Shams are more in numbers, ugly and intriguers but Bani Hashim are beautiful, good speakers and orators and very faithful as friends.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

There is nothing you can see that is not a flower; There is nothing you can think that is not the moon.

Matsuo Bash

If your object is to secure liberty, you must learn to do without authority and compulsion. If you intend to live in peace and harmony with your fellow-men, you and they should cultivate brotherhood and respect for each other. If you want to work together with them for your mutual benefit, you must practice cooperation. The social revolution means much more than the reorganization of conditions only: it means the establishment of new human values and social relationships, a changed attitude of man to man, as of one free and independent to his equal; it means a different spirit in individual and collective life, and that spirit cannot be born overnight. It is a spirit to be cultivated, to be nurtured and reared, as the most delicate flower it is, for indeed it is the flower of a new and beautiful existence.

Alexander Berkman

You are amazed that matter can form a man when matter is all mixed up at random and so many things go into making a person. But do you not realize that before matter forms someone it has also stopped along the way to make a stone, lead, coral, a flower, or a comet because there was too much or too little of it to make a human being? No wonder, then, that an infinite amount of incessantly moving and changing matter makes up the few animals, vegetables and minerals that we see. No wonder, either, that if you throw dice a hundred times, they will all show the same numbers at some point. This movement of matter, then, could not fail to produce something, and whatever it is will always be admired by the unthinking person who does not realize how close it came to not being made.

Cyrano Hercule Savinien de Bergerac

To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.

William Blake

Give me to live with Love alone And let the world go dine and dress; For Love hath lowly haunts... If life's a flower, I choose my own 'T is "love in Idleness".

Samuel Laman Blanchard

The moon like a flower In heaven's high bower, With silent delight, Sits and smiles on the night.

William Blake

Throw dirt on me, and grow a wild flower.

Lil Wayne

Throw dirt on me and grow a wild flower.

Lil Wayne
