Wisdom from Polonius

Flowers


B.G. DeSylva

Though April Showers may come your way
They bring the flowers that bloom in May


Lydia M. Child

Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of the character, though few can decypher even fragments of their meaning.


Henry Vaughan

The flowers without clothes live,
Yet Solomon was never dressed so fine.


Georgia O’Keeffe

I hate flowers—I paint them because they’re cheaper than models and they don’t move.


Pete Seeger

Where have all the flowers gone?
