I'd Rather Have Flowers On My Table Than Diamonds On My Neck

Yes, I'd rather have flowers on my table than diamonds on my neck...

For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant! ~Edward Abbey

To be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is a delectable form of defeat. ~Beverly Nichols

Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into. ~Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts, 1858

Ah! SunFlower by William Blake

Ah Sunflower! weary of time.
Who countest the steps of the Sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the travellers journey is done.

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow:
Arise from their graves and aspire.
Where my Sunflower wishes to go.

Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844

Perfumes are the feelings of flowers. ~Heinrich Heine, The Hartz Journey

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Terri Guillemets

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity. ~John Ruskin

Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock. ~Henry Ward Beecher, Star Papers: A Discourse of Flowers

These beautiful flowers are sold at Market! Market! in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
