“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Anderson
Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower.
“Night is a curious child, wandering
Between earth and sky, creeping
In windows and doors, daubing
The entire neighborhood
With purple paint. ”
Frank Marshall Davis (b. 1905), U.S. poet
