Flowers quotes by John Ruskin
#1. Wherever men are noble, they love bright colour; and wherever they can live healthily, bright colour is given them - in sky, sea, flowers, and living creatures. #Quote by John Ruskin
Flowers quotes by Joris-Karl Huysmans
#2. Those who visited that exhibition-room found an auto-de-fé of immense skies in ignition, globes blotted out by bleeding suns; hemorrhages of stars, flowing down in purple cataracts over tumbling tufts of clouds. Against this background of terrible din, silent women passed, nude or appareled in jeweled stuffs, like the bindings of the old Evangelists; women with hair of shaggy silk, with pale blue eyes, hard and fixed, and flesh of the frozen whiteness of milk; Salomes holding, motionless upon a platter, the head of the Baptist, which shone, soaked in phosphorus, under the quincunxes with shorn leaves, of a green that was almost black; goddesses galloping on hippogriffs and streaking, with the lapis lazuli of their wings, the agony of the clouds; feminine idols, in tiaras, upright on thrones, at the top of stairs submerged in extraordinary flowers, or seated, in rigid poses, upon the backs of elephants with green-mantled foreheads and breasts strung with pearl-ropes like cavalry bells, stamping about upon their own heavy image, reflected in a sheet of water and splashed by the columns of the ring-circled legs! #Quote by Joris-Karl Huysmans
Flowers quotes by Jaimal Yogis
#3. I guess even the prettiest things eventually end up stinking. Everything does. We all will die and rot and decay and be reborn as dirt or flowers or worms, or polar bears who will drown because their ice is all melting, or presidents of war-torn countries, or whales swimming around acidifying seas. And then we will rot and decay again. And so it goes. #Quote by Jaimal Yogis
Flowers quotes by Pablo Neruda
#4. I do not love you as if you were salt-rose or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms,
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers.
Thanks to your love a certain fragrance,
risen darkly from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride,
so I love you because I know no other way than this:
where "I" does not exist, nor "you,"
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
So close that your eyes close and I fall asleep. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Flowers quotes by Debasish Mridha
#5. Be a gardener to grow trees of trust and flowers of love. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Flowers quotes by Thomas Merton
#6. He was a very good gardener, understood flowers, and knew how to make things grow. What is more, he liked this kind of work almost as much as painting. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Flowers quotes by Heinrich Heine
#7. Sweet May hath come to love us,
Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
The very clouds move on. #Quote by Heinrich Heine
Flowers quotes by Alice Oswald
#8. I have this exercise where I force myself to look out from the flower's point of view at these great walloping humans coming down the path, and try, just try and feel it from their point of view because it's a different world to them, a fascinating hard one. #Quote by Alice Oswald
Flowers quotes by Antonio Iturbe
#9. But those who believe that flowers grow in vases don't understand anything about literature. The library has now become her first-aid kit, and she's going to give the children a little of the medicine that helped her recover her smile when she thought she'd lost it forever. #Quote by Antonio Iturbe
Flowers quotes by Pirkei Avot
#10. Compassion is the feeling of sympathy which the pain of one being awakens in another; and the higher and more human the beings are, the more keenly attuned they are to re-echo the note of suffering, which, like a voice from heaven, penetrates the heart, bringing all creatures a proof of their kinship in the universal God. And as for man, whose function it is to show respect and love for God's universe and all its creatures, his heart has been created so tender that it feels with the whole organic world ... mourning even for fading flowers; so that, if nothing else, the very nature of his heart must teach him that he is required above everything to fe the brother of all beings, and to recognize the claim of all beings to his love and his beneficence.
Horeb, Chapter 17, Verse 125 #Quote by Pirkei Avot
Flowers quotes by Mary Renault
#11. Nothing will change, Alexias. No, that is false; there is change whenever there is life, and already we are not the two who met in Taureas' palaestra. But what kind of fool would plant an apple-slip, to cut it down at the season when the fruit is setting? Flowers you can get every year, but only with time the tree that shades your doorway and grows into the house with each year's sun and rain. #Quote by Mary Renault
Flowers quotes by Anonymous
#12. The perfume of incense reminds us of the pervading influence of virtue, the lamp reminds us of light of knowledge and the flowers which soon fade and die, reminds us of impermanence. When we bow, we express our gratitude to the Buddha for what his teachings have given us. This is the nature of Buddhist worship. #Quote by Anonymous
Flowers quotes by Beau Bridges
#13. I also like to garden. I grow things, vegetables, flowers ... I particularly like orchids. I raise orchids. #Quote by Beau Bridges
Flowers quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#14. A genuine smile can speak a thousand words #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Flowers quotes by Jennifer Snyder
#15. Well, think about it for a minute. A guy tells you that he loves you and then turns around and buys you flowers ... or worse, tells you that he loves you with flowers. Cut flowers die. They die in a few days after being cut ... and this is what you guys choose to use as proof of your love? Something that dies in a few days? To me it seems like foreshadowing or something, like your basically saying that our love is beautiful but only for a limited time and then it will wither away to nothing like your flowers. #Quote by Jennifer Snyder
Flowers quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#16. My weapon has always been language, and I've always used it, but it has changed. Instead of shaping the words like knives now, I think they're flowers, or bridges. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Flowers quotes by Nenia Campbell
#17. She wasn't soft or pretty; she was hard-edged and cold, like one of those cold bronze statues surrounded by high fences and crowned in razor wire. Don't touch me, such defenses said, but it wasn't enough to halt a breach, no. She had thought people only picked the soft-petaled, sweet-smelling flowers, but some people took thorns as a challenge. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Flowers quotes by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
#18. For it is only framed in space that beauty blooms. Only in space are events and objects and people unique and significant-and therefore beautiful. A tree has significance if one sees it against the empty face of sky. A note in music gains significance from the silences on either side. A candle flowers in the space of night. Even small and casual things take on significance if they are washed in space, like a few autumn grasses in one corner of an Oriental painting, the rest of the page bare. #Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Flowers quotes by Thomas F. Healy
#19. Don't strew me with roses after I'm dead.
...When Death claims the light of my brow
No flowers of life will cheer me: instead
You may give me my roses now! #Quote by Thomas F. Healy
Flowers quotes by Samuel Johnson
#20. In the condition of men, it frequently happens that grief and anxiety lie hid under the golden robes of prosperity; and the gloom of calamity is cheered by secret radiations of hope and comfort; as in the works of nature, the bog is sometimes covered with flowers, and the mine concealed in the barren crags. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Flowers quotes by Neil Young
#21. Most pleasures, like flowers when gathered die. #Quote by Neil Young
Flowers quotes by Herman Melville
#22. Oh! ye whose dead lie buried beneath the green grass; who standing among flowers can say - here, HERE lies my beloved; ye know not the desolation that broods in bosoms like these. What bitter blanks in those black-bordered marbles which cover no ashes! What despair in those immovable inscriptions! What deadly voids and unbidden infidelities in the lines that seem to gnaw upon all Faith, and refuse resurrections to the beings who have placelessly perished without a grave. As well might those tablets stand in the cave of Elephanta as here. #Quote by Herman Melville
Flowers quotes by Amy Zhang
#23. I do have a heart. A big, messy, bleeding-like-a-volcano heart. If you pulled it out of my chest, it would be covered in escaped butterflies and black holes and weeds that look like flowers. #Quote by Amy Zhang
Flowers quotes by Emile M. Cioran
#24. Every word affords me pain. Yet how sweet it would be if I could hear what the flowers have to say about death! #Quote by Emile M. Cioran
Flowers quotes by Anthony Doerr
#25. sheets of yellow flowers glow in the fields, and Jutta wonders if any of them grow over the bones of her brother. Before dark, a well-dressed man with a prosthetic leg boards the train. He sits beside her and lights a cigarette. Jutta clutches her bag between her knees; she is certain that he was wounded in the war, that he will try to start a conversation, that her deficient French will betray her. Or that Max will say something. Or that the man can already tell. Maybe she smells German. He'll say, You did this to me. Please. Not in front of my son. But the train jolts into motion, and the man finishes his cigarette and gives her a preoccupied smile and promptly falls asleep. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Flowers quotes by L. Frank Baum
#26. Flowers are beautiful, for instance, but we are not inclined to marry them. Duty, on the contrary, is a bugle call to action, whether you are inclined to act, or not. In this case, I obey the bugle call of duty. #Quote by L. Frank Baum
Flowers quotes by Edmond Rostand
#27. My soul, be satisfied with flowers,
With fruit, with weeds even; but gather them
In the one garden you may call your own. #Quote by Edmond Rostand
Flowers quotes by Trenton Lee Stewart
#28. Mr. Benedict: "After I woke up and composed myself, however, I realized the flowers must certainly be yours, Constance, to do with as you please. At any rate
"
Mr.Benedict broke off, for just then Constance jumped to her feet, snatched the bouquet from his desk, and hurled it into the wastebasket with all the force she could muster
so hard that flower petals flew up out of the wastebasket like tiny pink butterflies. Then placing her hands against the wall to steady herself, she stomped one foot repeatedly into the wastebasket as if trying to put out a fire.
"I see we are of the same opinion," said Mr. Benedict as Constance returned to her seat, and the others congratulated her on her judgment. #Quote by Trenton Lee Stewart
Flowers quotes by Margery Fish
#29. One of the most delightful things about gardening is the freemasonry it gives with other gardeners, and the interest and pleasure all gardeners get by visiting other people's gardens. We all have a lot to learn and in every new garden there is a chance of finding inspiration - new flowers, different arrangement or fresh treatment for old subjects. Even if it is a garden you know by heart there are twelve months in the year and every month means a different garden, and the discovery of things unexpected all the rest of the year. #Quote by Margery Fish
Flowers quotes by Bianca Sommerland
#30. Some people can't see love beyond the shroud of pain and suffering, but that's no big surprise. In dire circumstances flowers seem stupid and boxes of chocolates a waste and you can't have 'true' love without those! #Quote by Bianca Sommerland
Flowers quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#31. Professora." Miles ducked a nod to her, smiling in turn. "Is she here? Is she in? Is she well? You said this would be a good time. I'm not too early, am I? I thought I'd be late. The traffic was miserable. You're going to be around, aren't you? I brought these. Do you think she'll like them?" The sticking-up red flowers tickled his nose as he displayed his gift while still clutching the rolled-up flimsie, which had a tendency to try to unroll and escape whenever his grip loosened. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Flowers quotes by Eddie Mair
#32. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran ... in one shot on his website he appears to be dressed only in flowers. Oh - here's the page, you'll see what I mean. #Quote by Eddie Mair
Flowers quotes by Eleanor Perenyi
#33. A gift of flowers to a woman implies that she is as deliciously desirable as the blossoms themselves; but there may be another and hidden message, contained in the old-fashioned phrases like 'shy as a violet, 'clinging vine,' not originally conceived as pejoratives, that tells more of the truth - which is that flowers are also emblems of feminine submission. #Quote by Eleanor Perenyi
Flowers quotes by Shirley Jackson
#34. He hated the blue platter his mother served from, and the salt and pepper shakers, which were glass with red tops, and he hated the silverware designed in flowers, some pieces scratched almost beyond recognition. He even hated the round table and the succession of tablecloths, one pale blue with yellow leaves, one white with red and orange squares. He hated the uncomfortable chairs, particularly his own, where he sat squirming, and he hated his family and the way they talked. #Quote by Shirley Jackson
Flowers quotes by Chloe Neill
#35. I stood there for a moment, playing emotional catch-up.He drove down from the Navarre House just to surprise me with flowers.And not It's -Valentines's Day-and-I-feel-olbligated flowers.These were just-because flowers. #Quote by Chloe Neill
Flowers quotes by John Greenleaf Whittier
#36. A grateful loving heart carries with it, under every parallel of latitude, the warmth and light of the tropics. It plants its Eden in the wilderness and solitary place, and sows with flowers the gray desolation of rock and mosses. #Quote by John Greenleaf Whittier
Flowers quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#37. That quest for something pretty. A cheat. A cliche. Flowers and Christmas lights, it's what we're programmed to love. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Flowers quotes by Monica Potter
#38. I shop at thrift stores a lot. I have a lot of silver pitchers and I put my flowers in those. I collect antiques, so there are a lot of old rocking chairs ... My friends call my home the vortex because nobody wants to leave. #Quote by Monica Potter
Flowers quotes by Virginia Woolf
#39. With stars in her eyes and veils in her hair, with cyclamen and wild violets - what nonsense was he thinking? She was fifty at least: she had eight children. Stepping through fields of flowers and taking to her breast buds that had broken and lambs that had fallen: with the stars in her eyes and the wind in her hair - He took her bag. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Flowers quotes by Ryan Howard
#40. Anybody can be Prince Charming one day a year, with the dinner and the flowers and all that. But you know what impresses me? When a guy can do that NO days a year. #Quote by Ryan Howard
Flowers quotes by Kabir
#41. There, where millions of Krishnas stand with hands folded, Where millions of Vishnus bow their heads, Where millions of Brahmâs are reading the Vedas, Where millions of Shivas are lost in contemplation, Where millions of Indras dwell in the sky, Where the demi-gods and the munis are unnumbered, Where millions of Saraswatis, Goddess of Music, play on the vina - There is my Lord self-revealed: and the scent of sandal and flowers dwells in those deeps. #Quote by Kabir
Flowers quotes by Suzy Kassem
#42. There are over a million types of fish in the sea as there are flowers in all of the world's gardens. There are at least a million different types of rocks/minerals as there are species of birds or monkeys. To believe we are the only "intelligent beings" on this earth and beyond is ignorance. The possible configurations of lifeforms that could be created from a single atom are infinite. There are at least a billion people on this earth, and no two faces look the same. It is very arrogant to assume that we have seen all of God's miracles. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Flowers quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#43. Ironic," Betty Lou said at last. "The cereus insists on sunlight
that's why it must be at the end of the yard. And yet it saves its flowers for the moon. The sun never sees what it fathers."
It takes from the day," I said, "gives to the night. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Flowers quotes by Sanober Khan
#44. may my faith always be
at the end of the day

like a hummingbird...returning
to its favorite flower. #Quote by Sanober Khan
Flowers quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#45. Every year when I stands first in my class, Ma gives me the advice: Daughter, she say, never be gamandi. What you have, given to you by God. You just a basket into which God puts the flowers. Flowers not belong to you. They belongs to God. Same way, your clever belong to God. #Quote by Thrity Umrigar
Flowers quotes by David Lodge
#46. When April with its sweet showers has pierced the drought of March to the root, and bathed every vein of earth with that liquid by whose power the flowers are engendered; when the zephyr, too, with its dulcet breath, has breathed life into the tender new shoots in every copse and on every hearth, and the young sun has run half his course in the sign of the Ram, and the little birds that sleep all night with their eyes open give song (so Nature prompts them in their hearts), then, as the poet Geoffrey Chaucer observed many years ago, folk long to go on pilgrimages. Only, these days, professional people call them conferences.
The modern conference resembles the pilgrimage of medieval Christendom in that it allows the participants to indulge themselves in all the pleasures and diversions of travel while appearing to be austerely bent on self-improvement. To be sure, there are certain penitential exercises to be performed - the presentation of a paper, perhaps, and certainly listening to papers of others. #Quote by David Lodge
Flowers quotes by Pablo Neruda
#47. I love you between shadow and soul. I love you as the plant that hasn't bloomed yet, and carries hidden within itself the light of flowers. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. Because of you, the dense fragrance that rises from the earth lives in my body, rioting with hunger for the eternity of our victorious kisses. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Flowers quotes by Harper Lee
#48. Older Scout: [narrating] Neighbors bring food with death, and flowers with sickness, and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a knife, and our lives. #Quote by Harper Lee
Flowers quotes by Czesław Miłosz
#49. In Rome on the Campo dei Fiori
Baskets of olives and lemons,
Cobbles spattered with wine
And the wreckage of flowers.
Vendors cover the trestles
With rose-pink fish;
Armfuls of dark grapes
Heaped on peach-down.

On this same square
They burned Giordano Bruno.
Henchmen kindled the pyre
Close-pressed by the mob.
Before the flames had died
The taverns were full again,
Baskets of olives and lemons
Again on the vendors' shoulders.

I thought of the Campo dei Fiori
In Warsaw by the sky-carousel
One clear spring evening
To the strains of a carnival tune.
The bright melody drowned
The salvos from the ghetto wall,
And couples were flying
High in the cloudless sky.

At times wind from the burning
Would drift dark kites along
And riders on the carousel
Caught petals in midair.
That same hot wind
Blew open the skirts of the girls
And the crowds were laughing
On that beautiful Warsaw Sunday.

Someone will read as moral
That the people of Rome or Warsaw
Haggle, laugh, make love
As they pass by martyrs' pyres.
Someone else will read
Of the passing of things human,
Of the oblivion
Born before the flames have died.

But that day I thought only
Of the loneliness of the dying,
Of how, when Giordano
Climbed to his burning
There were no words
In any h #Quote by Czesław Miłosz
Flowers quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#50. How right it is to love flowers and the greenery of pines and ivy and hawthorn hedges; they have been with us from the very beginning. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Flowers quotes by Kate Forsyth
#51. Huge tureens of puréed chestnut soup with truffles were carried in and served to each guest, filling the air with a rich earthy small. Then the servants brought in ballotine of pheasant, served with cold lobster in aspic and deep-sea oysters brought up the river by boat that morning. Our own foie gras on tiny rounds of bread was followed by 'margret de canard,' the breast meat of force-fed ducks, roasted with small home-grown pears and Armagnac. There was a white-bean cassoulet with wild hare, a haunch of venison cooked in cinnamon and wine, eel pie, and a salad of leaves and flowers from the garden, dressed in olive oil and lemon. #Quote by Kate Forsyth
Flowers quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#52. No seed ever grew in comfort; the loveliest flowers still bloom in the ugliest soil. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Flowers quotes by Kami Garcia
#53. I touch 100 flowers, but don't pick one. #Quote by Kami Garcia
Flowers quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#54. Flowers are so inconsistent! #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Flowers quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#55. Our love is like a flower.

First you need to plant the seeds.
Then you give it love, water and nutrients.
The you watch it grow and grow.
And finally it blossoms to become you. #Quote by Anthony T. Hincks
Flowers quotes by J.K. Rowling
#56. Wow," he added, blinking rather rapidly as Hermione came hurrying toward them. "You look great!"
"Always the tone of surprise," said Hermione, though she smiled. She was wearing a floaty, lilac-colored dress with matching high heels; her hair was sleek and shiny. "Your Great-Aunt Muriel doesn't agree, I just met her upstairs while she was giving Fleur the tiara. She said, 'Oh dear, is this the Muggle-born?' and then, 'Bad posture and skinny ankles.'"
"Don't take it personally, she's rude to everyone," said Ron.
"Talking about Muriel?" inquired George, reemerging from the marquee with Fred. "Yeah, she's just told me my ears are lopsided. Old bat. I wish old Uncle Bilius was still with us, though; he was a right laugh at weddings."
"Wasn't he the one who saw a Grim and died twenty-hour hours later?" asked Hermione.
"Well, yeah, he went a bit odd toward the end," conceded George.
"But before he went loopy he was the life and soul of the party," said Fred. "He used to down an entire bottle of firewhisky, then run onto the dance floor, hoist up his robes, and start pulling bunches of flowers out of his--"
"Yes, he sounds a real charmer," said Hermione, while Harry roared with laughter.
"Never married, for some reason," said Ron.
"You amaze me," said Hermione. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Flowers quotes by Matthew Fox
#57. The universe is in the habit of making beauty. There are flowers and songs, snowflakes and smiles, acts of great courage, laughter between friends, a job well done, the smell of fresh baked bread. Beauty is everywhere. #Quote by Matthew Fox
Flowers quotes by Octave Mirbeau
#58. After two years' absence she finally returned to chilly Europe, a trifle weary, a trifle sad, disgusted by our banal entertainments, our shrunken landscapes, our impoverished lovemaking. Her soul had remained over there, among the gigantic, poisonous flowers. She missed the mystery of old temples and the ardor of a sky blazing with fever, sensuality and death. The better to relive all these magnificent, raging memories, she became a recluse, spending entire days lying about on tiger skins, playing with those pretty Nepalese knives 'which dissipate one's dreams'. #Quote by Octave Mirbeau
Flowers quotes by Susan Wiggs
#59. What a joy life is when you have made a close working partnership with Nature, helping her to produce for the benefit of mankind new forms, colors, and perfumes in flowers which were never known before; fruits in form, size, and flavor never before seen on this globe." -Luther Burbank. #Quote by Susan Wiggs
Flowers quotes by Ayelet Shaked
#60. Behind every terrorist stand dozens of men and women, without whom he could not engage in terrorism. They are all enemy combatants, and their blood shall be on all their heads. Now this also includes the mothers of the martyrs, who send them to hell with flowers and kisses. They should follow their sons, nothing would be more just. They should go, as should the physical homes in which they raised the snakes. Otherwise, more little snakes will be raised there. #Quote by Ayelet Shaked
Flowers quotes by Charlotte Symonds
#61. When I am amongst the trees and flowers, I feel like I'm home. #Quote by Charlotte Symonds
Flowers quotes by David Nicholls
#62. Their friendship was like a wilted bunch of flowers that she insisted on topping up with water. Why not let it die instead? #Quote by David Nicholls
Flowers quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#63. He gets back to the Casino just as big globular raindrops, thick as honey, begin to splat into giant asterisks on the pavement, inviting him to look down at the bottom of the text of the day, where footnotes will explain all. He isn't about to look. Nobody ever said a day has to be juggled into any kind of sense at day's end. He just runs. Rain grows in wet crescendo. His footfalls send up fine flowers of water, hanging a second behind his flight. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Flowers quotes by Marcel Proust
#64. For it was the one that I would have chosen above all others, convinced as I was, with a botanist's satisfaction, that it was not possible to find gathered together rarer specimens than these young flowers that at this moment before my eyes were breaking the line of the sea with their slender heads, like a bower of Pennsylvania roses adorned a Cliffside garden, between whose blooms is contained the whole tract of ocean crossed by some steamer, so slow in gliding along the blue, horizontal line that stretches from one stem to the next that an idle butterfly, dawdling in the cup of a flower which the ship's hull has long since passed, can wait, before flying off in time to arrive before it, until nothing by the tiniest chink of blue still separates the prow from the first petal of the flower towards which it is steering. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Flowers quotes by H. L. Balcomb
#65. The flowers' beauty drew her closer to them like a magnetic force. She felt compelled to walk a little faster. #Quote by H. L. Balcomb
Flowers quotes by Robert Breault
#66. Each day, awakening, are we asked to paint the sky blue? Need we coax the sun to rise or flowers to bloom? Need we teach birds to sing, or children to laugh, or lovers to kiss? No, though we think the world imperfect, it surrounds us each day with its perfections. We are asked only to appreciate them, and to show appreciation by living in peaceful harmony amidst them. The Creator does not ask that we create a perfect world; He asks that we celebrate it. #Quote by Robert Breault
Flowers quotes by Annabel Joseph
#67. I looked up at the stars that were really flowers and thought about vanillas who were really kinky folks waiting to be born #Quote by Annabel Joseph
Flowers quotes by Martha Albrand
#68. There are as many jealousies in life as there are different flowers or trees or animals. #Quote by Martha Albrand
Flowers quotes by Marian Keyes
#69. Where does love go when it dies? Into flowers and other beautiful things? Back out into the universe to be recycled? #Quote by Marian Keyes
Flowers quotes by Okakura Kakuzo
#70. In joy or sadness flowers are our constant friends. #Quote by Okakura Kakuzo
Flowers quotes by Cassandra Clare
#71. The sea still fascinated her with it's ever-changing surface, and the desert with its shadows and flowers. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Flowers quotes by Garrison Keillor
#72. What keeps faith cheerful is the extreme persistence of gentleness and humor. Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things: through cooking and small talk, through storytelling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet corn and flowers, through sports, music, and books, raising kids-all the places where the gravy soaks in and grace shines through. Even in a time of elephantine vanity and greed, one never has to look far to see the campfires of gentle people. Lacking any other purpose in life, it would be good enough to live for their sake. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Flowers quotes by Sarah Addison Allen
#73. You asked what the wallpaper was in Mom's old room. It's lilacs."
"Ah. It was always flowers, usually roses, when she was a little girl. It changed a lot as she got older. I remember once it was lightning bolts on a tar-black background. And then another time it was this scaly blue color, like a dragon's belly. She hated that one, but couldn't seem to change it. #Quote by Sarah Addison Allen
Flowers quotes by Michael Pearce
#74. Is there anything interesting about cotton growing?" someone asked.
"Oh, a lot!" Paul answered him.
"What does it...do?"
"Do? Well it...sort of...grows."
"Like weeds?" said someone helpfully.
"Yes. No. No, not like weeds."
"Like roses, perhaps?" suggested the rose fancier.
"Yes. You could say that. Almost."
"Wouldn't it be all white, though? I mean, the flowers?"
"That doesn't sound very interesting," said someone doubtfully.
"And green," put in Paul hastily. "Green too." Paul was not much of an agriculturalist. #Quote by Michael Pearce
Flowers quotes by Sylvia Townsend Warner
#75. So Laura is placed for us: mushrooms, crushed flowers, country matters. In London she will miss the greenhouse with its glossy tank, the appleroom, everything "earthy and warm." Laura is an anomaly in the world of easy literary symbolism: she is a spinster, completely uninterested in men. Nevertheless she belongs irrevocably to the sources of life: to earth, seeds, bulbs. #Quote by Sylvia Townsend Warner
Flowers quotes by Lettie B. Cowman
#76. How can we have rain without clouds? Our troubles have always brought us blessings, and they always will, for they are the dark chariots of God's bright and glorious grace. Before long the clouds will be emptied, and every tender plant will be happier due to the showers. Our God may drench us with grief, but He will refresh us with His mercy. Our Lord's love letters often come to us in dark envelopes. His wagons may rumble noisily across the sky, but they are loaded with benefits. And His rod blossoms with sweet flowers and nourishing fruits. #Quote by Lettie B. Cowman
Flowers quotes by Marcel Proust
#77. madeleine soaked in her decoction of lime-flowers which my aunt used to give me (although I did not yet know and must long postpone the discovery of why this memory made me so happy) #Quote by Marcel Proust
Flowers quotes by Helen Keller
#78. I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times; but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers. #Quote by Helen Keller
Flowers quotes by Brandon Flowers
#79. I was so young when the Killers started. I was 21. I'm proud of those songs, but there's no way I would write 'Somebody Told Me,' as I get older. Especially after having kids. #Quote by Brandon Flowers
Flowers quotes by M.R. Carey
#80. Because the bag is full of colours - starbursts and wheels and whorls of dazzling brightness that are as fine and complex in their structures as the branch is, only much more symmetrical. Flowers. #Quote by M.R. Carey
Flowers quotes by Sugawara No Michizane
#81. The autumn breeze rises on the shore at Fukiage- and those white chrysanthemums are they flowers? or not? or only breakers on the beach? #Quote by Sugawara No Michizane
Flowers quotes by Daniel Keyes
#82. I may not have all the time I thought I had... #Quote by Daniel Keyes
Flowers quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#83. A human being is like a seed. Either you can keep it as it is, or you can make it grow into a wonderful tree with flowers and fruits. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Flowers quotes by Auguste Rodin
#84. The artist is the confidant of nature, flowers carry on dialogues with him through the graceful bending of their stems and the harmoniously tinted nuances of their blossoms. Every flower has a cordial word which nature directs towards him. #Quote by Auguste Rodin
Flowers quotes by Lucretius
#85. In the midst of the fountain of wit there arises something bitter, which stings in the very flowers. #Quote by Lucretius
Flowers quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#86. People are ready to take the good things into their minds! Give them good and right ideas; they will immediately take them as if they are taking beautiful flowers! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Flowers quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#87. Simplicity is the law of nature for men as well as for flowers. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Flowers quotes by John Kennedy Toole
#88. This is a floral abortion,' Ignatius commented irritably and tapped the vase with his cutlas. 'Dyed flowers are unnatural and perverse and, I suspect, obscene also. I can see that I am going to have my hands full with you people. #Quote by John Kennedy Toole
Flowers quotes by W.S. Merwin
#89. A BIRTHDAY
Something continues and I don't know what to call it
though the language is full of suggestions
in the way of language
but they are all anonymous
and it's almost your birthday music next to my bones
these nights we hear the horses running in the rain
it stops and the moon comes out and we are still here
the leaks in the roof go on dripping after the rain has passed
smell of ginger flowers slips through the dark house
down near the sea the slow heart of the beacon flashes
the long way to you is still tied to me but it brought me to you
I keep wanting to give you what is already yours
it is the morning of the mornings together
breath of summer oh my found one
the sleep in the same current and each waking to you
when I open my eyes you are what I wanted to see. #Quote by W.S. Merwin
Flowers quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#90. The highest genius never flowers in satire, but culminates in sympathy with that which is best in human nature, and appeals to it. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Flowers quotes by Lewis Thomas
#91. Animals, even plants, lie to each other all the time, and we could restrict the research to them, putting off the real truth about ourselves for the several centuries we need to catch our breath. What is it that enables certain flowers to resemble nubile insects, or opossums to play dead, or female fireflies to change the code of their flashes in order to attract, and then eat, males of a different species? #Quote by Lewis Thomas
Flowers quotes by Susanna Moore
#92. 'In the Cut' was not what readers expected of me. Before it was published, I was seen as a women's writer, which meant that I wrote movingly about flowers and children. #Quote by Susanna Moore
Flowers quotes by Henry George Bohn
#93. If on creation's morn the king of heaven
To shrubs and flowers a sovereign lord had given,
O beauteous rose, he had anointed thee
Of shrubs and flowers the sovereign lord to be;
The spotless emblem of unsullied truth,
The smile of beauty and the glow of youth,
The garden's pride, the grace of vernal bowers,
The blush of meadows, and the eye of flowers. #Quote by Henry George Bohn
Flowers quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#94. At eighteen the true narrative of life is yet to be
commenced. Before that time we sit listening to a tale, a marvelous fiction, delightful sometimes, and sad sometimes, almost always unreal. Before that time our world is heroic, its inhabitants half-divine or semi-demon; its scenes are dreamscenes; darker woods and stranger hills, brighter skies, more dangerous waters, sweeter flowers, more tempting fruits, wider plains, drearier deserts, sunnier fields than are found in nature, overspread our enchanted globe. What a moon we gaze on before that time! How the trembling of our hearts at her aspect bears
witness to its unutterable beauty! #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Flowers quotes by Charles Olson
#95. The flowers are ravined
by bees, the fruit blossoms

are thrown to the ground, the wind
the rain forces everything. #Quote by Charles Olson
Flowers quotes by Harper Lee
#96. Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. #Quote by Harper Lee
Flowers quotes by Clarice Lispector
#97. But I also know of yet another life. I know and want it and devour it ferociously. It's a life of magical violence. It's mysterious and bewitching. In it snakes entwine while the stars tremble. Drops of water drip in the phosphorescent darkness of the cave. In that dark the flowers intertwine in a humid fairy garden. And I am the sorceress of that silent bacchanal. I feel defeated by my own corruptibility. And I see that I am intrinsically bad. It's only out of pure kindness that I am good. Defeated by myself. Who lead me along the paths of the salamander, the spirit who rules the fire and lives within it. And I give myself as an offering to the dead. I weave spells on the solstice, spectre of an exorcised dragon. #Quote by Clarice Lispector
Flowers quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#98. In your body is the garden of flowers. Take your seat on the thousand petals of the lotus, and there gaze on the Infinite Beauty. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Flowers quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#99. And the past held only this wisdom: that love was a damaging mistake, and its accomplice, hope, a treacherous illusion. And whenever those twin poisonous flowers began to sprout in the parched land of that field, Mariam uprooted them. She uprooted them and ditched them before they took hold. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Flowers quotes by Kenneth Grahame
#100. The pageant of the river bank had marched steadily along, unfolding itself in scene-pictures that succeeded itself in stately procession.

Purple loosestrife arrived early, shaking luxuriant locks along the edge of the mirror whence its own face laughed back at it. Willow-herb, tender and wistful, like a pink sunset-cloud was not slow to follow. Comfrey, the purple hand-in-hand with the white, crept forth to take its place in the line; and at last one morning the diffident and delaying dog-rose stepped delicately on the stage, and one knew, as if string music has announced it in stately chords that strayed into a gavotte, that June at last was here.

One member of the company was still awaited; the shepherd-boy for the nymphs to woo, the knight for whom the ladies waited at the window, the prince that was to kiss the sleeping summer back to life and love. But when meadow-sweet, debonair and odorous in amber jerkin, moved graciously to his place in the group, then the play was ready to begin. #Quote by Kenneth Grahame
Flowers quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#101. Go, little book, and wish to all
Flowers in the garden, meat in the hall,
A bin of wine, a spice of wit,
A house with lawns enclosing it,
A living river by the door,
A nightingale in the sycamore! #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Flowers quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#102. A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soul mate, the one you can tell your dreams to. He'll brush the hair out of your eyes. Send you flowers when you least expect it. He'll stare at you during the movies, even though he paid $8 to see it. He'll call to say goodnight or just cause he's missing you. He'll look in your eyes and tell you, you're the most beautiful girl in the world, and for the first times in your life, you'll believe it. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Flowers quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#103. They were all tall and slender with heads groomed like manikins' heads, and as they talked the heads waved gracefully above their dark tailored suits, rather like long-stemmed flowers and rather like cobras' hoods. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Flowers quotes by C.G. Jung
#104. Nothing could persuade me that "in the image of God" applied only to man. In fact it seemed to me that the high mountains, the rivers, lakes, trees, flowers and animals far better exemplified the essence of God than men with their ridiculous clothes, their meanness, vanity, mendacity, and abhorrent egotism - #Quote by C.G. Jung
Flowers quotes by Diane Ackerman
#105. Must be I find you
tough and lusty as the life,
all toil and tempo,
finesse and plain fight,
with values so old they startle me.
Must be I think of you
as I do the rugged flowers
that prove themselves over and over in the spring,
that elsewhere might perish,
but here master the earth,
bloom into gangly lives of high color,
and inhale the sun, knowing the land
better than the land does.
Hardy, savvy,
they will outlive us all. #Quote by Diane Ackerman
Flowers quotes by Samuel Johnson
#106. No man can taste the fruits of autumn while he is delighting his scent with the flowers of spring. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Flowers quotes by Lisa Shearin
#107. Most girls get flowers or candy. I get a declaration of martial law. #Quote by Lisa Shearin
Flowers quotes by Bob Dylan
#108. You say you're looking for someone who'll pick you up each time you fall, to gather flowers constantly and to come each time you call, a lover your life and nothing more. But it ain't me, babe. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Flowers quotes by Czeslaw Milosz
#109. A day so happy. Fog lifted early. I worked in the garden. Hummingbirds were stopping over honeysuckle flowers. There was no thing on earth I wanted to possess. I know no one worth my envying him. #Quote by Czeslaw Milosz
Flowers quotes by Unknown
#110. Count Roland scans the mountains and the hills
he sees so many dead French lying there,
and like a noble knight he weeps for them.
'My Lords and Barons, God be merciful,
deliver your souls to Paradise
and let them lie among the blessed flowers!
I've never seen more worthy knights than you #Quote by Unknown
Flowers quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#111. Enlightenment is like witnessing the brilliant sun for the first time in the morning. It is like seeing the beautiful flowers that grow in the wood, the frolicking deer, a bird flying proudly, or fish swimming. Life is not all that grim. In the morning you brush your teeth, you can see how shiny they are. Reality has its own gallantry, spark, and arrogance. You can study life while you are alive. You can study how you can achieve the brilliance of life. #Quote by Chogyam Trungpa
Flowers quotes by Rebecca Flowers
#112. You know how you're at a party and you pick up the wrong beer, and you know after one sip that it's not yours? But then, when you find the right one, you know it right away? Why? What is it? The temperature, or the taste of your own spit that you somehow recognize? Or the weight and moistness of the can? Or maybe everything, all together. But it's all so subtle and complex you can't explain it. If someone asked, How do you know that's your beer? well, you wouldn't know what to say. You just know. #Quote by Rebecca Flowers
Flowers quotes by Akilnathan Logeswaran
#113. I love your roots, not the flower everybody sees! #Quote by Akilnathan Logeswaran
Flowers quotes by Carrie Fisher
#114. Mike Nichols used to say we were two flowers, no gardener. No one was minding the relationship. #Quote by Carrie Fisher
Flowers quotes by Jim C. Hines
#115. Odd lair for a dragon", Darnak said, "and I've seen one or two in my times."
"Do all dragons own flower gardens?"
"This is the first one I've come across. #Quote by Jim C. Hines
Flowers quotes by Hans Christian Andersen
#116. out-of-doors there was quite a snow-storm. "It is the white bees that are swarming," said Kay's old grandmother. "Do the white bees choose a queen?" asked the little boy; for he knew that the honey-bees always have one. "Yes," said the grandmother, "she flies where the swarm hangs in the thickest clusters. She is the largest of all; and she can never remain quietly on the earth, but goes up again into the black clouds. Many a winter's night she flies through the streets of the town, and peeps in at the windows; and they then freeze in so wondrous a manner that they look like flowers. #Quote by Hans Christian Andersen
Flowers quotes by Jessica Gadziala
#117. Girls want flowers and candy, they go for the nice business men. They want a good solid fucking that can make them see the face of god, they come to men like me. I make no apologies about being who I am. #Quote by Jessica Gadziala
Flowers quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#118. Stars of earth, these golden flowers; emblems of our own great resurrection; emblems of the bright and better land. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Flowers quotes by Richard Brautigan
#119. I don't know these people and they aren't my flowers. #Quote by Richard Brautigan
Flowers quotes by Johnny B. Truant
#120. The sun rose. Flowers bloomed. People even continued to talk to me as if I weren't a complete failure, as if they didn't know or possibly -- unthinkably -- didn't care. Life went on. I think that's when I realized that it's all bullshit. #Quote by Johnny B. Truant
Flowers quotes by Caryll Houselander
#121. Every ordinary thing in your life is a word of God's love: your home, your work, the clothes you wear, the air you breathe, the food you eat ... the flowers under your feet are the courtesy of God's heart flung down on You! All these things say one thing only: "See how I love you." #Quote by Caryll Houselander
Flowers quotes by Jens Jensen
#122. Everyone is entitled to a home where the sun, the stars, open fields, giant trees, and smiling flowers are free to teach an undisturbed lesson of life. #Quote by Jens Jensen
Flowers quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#123. Though he walked and breathed, and about him living leaves and flowers were stirred by the same cool wind as fanned his face, Frodo felt he was in a timeless land that did not fade or change or fall into forgetfulness. When he had gone and passed again into the outer world, still Frodo the wanderer from the Shire would walk there, upon the grass among elanor and niphredil in fair Lothlorien #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Flowers quotes by A.J. Flowers
#124. A flock of angels are coming to see me...or a gaggle? A herd? No, they aren't animals. A legion... That's the word. #Quote by A.J. Flowers
Flowers quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#125. O thou the last fulfilment of life, Death, my death, come and whisper to me!

Day after day I have kept watch for thee; for thee have I borne the joys and pangs of life.

All that I am, that I have, that I hope and all my love have ever flowed towards thee in depth of secrecy. One final glance from thine eyes and my life will be ever thine own.

The flowers have been woven and the garland is ready for the bridegroom. After the wedding the bride shall leave her home and meet her lord alone in the solitude of night. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Flowers quotes by Louise Westerhout
#126. are important sources of emotional, creative and spiritual nourishment for me. It seems there is never enough space at our kitchen table; the children need a surface to draw on, between the flowers and fruit bowls, and sometimes it feels like a game of musical chairs to seat everyone #Quote by Louise Westerhout
Flowers quotes by Arthur Flowers
#127. No matter the difficulty, no matter the danger. He inspire them like no other since or before. #Quote by Arthur Flowers
Flowers quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#128. Thus we see, too, in the world that some persons assimilate only what is ugly and evil from the same moral circumstances which supply good and beautiful results
the fragrance of celestial flowers
to the daily life of others. #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Flowers quotes by David D. Flowers
#129. Biblical eschatology fundamentally challenges the "official" scientific idea that the universe will end in a violent heat death, and instead that the cosmos will be set free from its decadence. It calls us to consider the sobering similarities between ancient pagan cosmologies (creation began with war & violence between the gods) and modern naturalism as a nihilistic, philosophical worldview (all will end in astronomical war & violence). Instead, the revelation (apocalypse) of the Lamb is that God created out of love and love will win in the end. #Quote by David D. Flowers
Flowers quotes by Jaelyn Holloway
#130. You can make the jar as an immersive pot of chicken corn soap for the winter vacations. You can make the gift immersive by decorating it with some funky colored flowers and by tighten ribbons. #Quote by Jaelyn Holloway
Flowers quotes by John Galsworthy
#131. He was a wanderer by nature, and even if England and the nearer East were closed to him, the world was wide, the sun shone in many places, the stars wheeled over one, books could be read, women had beauty, flowers scent, tobacco its flavour, music its moving power, coffee its fragrance, horses and dogs and birds were the same seductive creatures, #Quote by John Galsworthy
Flowers quotes by Shunryu Suzuki
#132. Our mind should be free from traces of the past, just like the flowers of spring. #Quote by Shunryu Suzuki
Flowers quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#133. In Congo, a slashed jungle quickly becomes a field of flowers, and scars become the ornaments of a particular face. Call it oppression, complicity, stupefaction, call it what you like, it doesn't matter. Africa swallowed the conqueror's music and sang a new song of her own. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Flowers quotes by Carole Maso
#134. I weep flowers, I weep song, I bleed #Quote by Carole Maso
Flowers quotes by Harriet Beecher Stowe
#135. The beautiful must ever rest in the arms of the sublime. The gentle needs the strong to sustain it, as much as the rock-flowers need rocks to grow on, or the ivy the rugged wall which it embraces. #Quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Flowers quotes by Lord Dunsany
#136. O gods, rob not the earth of the dim hush that hangs round all Your temples, bereave not all the world of old romance, take not the glamour from the moonlight nor tear the wonder out of the white mists in every land; for, O ye gods of the childhood of the world, when You have left the earth You shall have taken the mystery from the sea and all its glory from antiquity, and You shall have wrenched our hope from the dim future. There shall be no strange cities at night time half understood, nor songs in the twilight, and the whole of the wonder shall have died with last year's flowers in little gardens or hill-slopes leaning south; for with the gods must go the enchantment of the plains and all the magic of dark woods, and something shall be lacking from the quiet of early dawn. #Quote by Lord Dunsany
Flowers quotes by Thomas Wright
#137. When Wilde composed his works he surrounded himself with books. A friend remembered him writing a poem 'with a botanical work in front of him from which he . . . [selected] the names of flowers most pleasing to the ear to plant in his garden of verse'.5 Aubrey Beardsley's caricature of Wilde, 'Oscar Wilde at Work', shows the author at his desk surrounded by mountains of books. #Quote by Thomas Wright
Flowers quotes by S. Jae-Jones
#138. You always called me the gardener of your heart," he said softly. "But you have gone and grown your flowers without me. #Quote by S. Jae-Jones
Flowers quotes by Loni Flowers
#139. Did you know you snore in your sleep? You do this little gurgling, whining thing. Scared the shit out of me at first. I couldn't tell if you were drowning or whistling at me. I started to stick a wad of napkins in your mouth. #Quote by Loni Flowers
Flowers quotes by William Somerset Maugham
#140. Immediately after Mrs. Carey's death Emma had ordered from the florist masses of white flowers for the room in which the dead woman lay. It was sheer waste of money. Emma took far too much upon herself. Even if there had been no financial necessity, he would have dismissed her. But Philip went to her, and hid his face in her bosom, and wept as though his heart would break. And she, feeling that he was almost her own son - she had taken him when he was a month old - consoled him with soft words. She promised that she would come and see him sometimes, and that she would never forget him; and #Quote by William Somerset Maugham
Flowers quotes by Robert Creeley
#141. It is hard going to the door
cut so small in the wall where
the vision which echoes loneliness
brings a scent of wild flowers in the wood. #Quote by Robert Creeley
Flowers quotes by Debasish Mridha
#142. In February when my garden is barren of flowers, you are the only flower blooming in my heart. I cherish you and adore you with all of my heart because you are my Valentine. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Flowers quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#143. Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?" ...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine ... #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Flowers quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#144. Pure love' means that it never increases or decreases. If it does not decrease when you curse him and it does not increase when you give him garlands of flowers; it is 'Pure Love'. 'Pure love' is considered Paramatma prem (Love of God). That is indeed true religion. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Flowers quotes by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
#145. As she looked me up and down, I felt like a daughter returning from summer camp to a mother who had worried unnecessarily. Except instead of summer camp it had been my entire adolescence, emancipation, homelessness, and single parenthood, and I couldn't rightly say that Elizabeth's worry had been unwarranted #Quote by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
Flowers quotes by Alice Sebold
#146. Samuel walked out to Lindsey then, and there she was in his arms, my sweet butterball babe, born ten years after my fourteen years on Earth: Abigail Suzanne. Little Susie to me. Samuel placed Susie on a blanket near the flowers. And my sister, my Lindsey, left me in her memories, where I was meant to be. #Quote by Alice Sebold
Flowers quotes by Arundhati Roy
#147. Outside, the Air was Alert and Bright and Hot ... She could see the pattern of the cross-stitch flowers from the blue cross-stitch counterpane on Ammu's cheek. She could hear the blue cross-stitch afternoon.
The slow ceiling fan.
The sun behind the curtains.
The yellow wasp wasping against the windowpane in a dangerous dzzzzzzzzzzzz.
A disbelieving lizard's blink.
High-stepping chickens in the yard.
The sound of the sun crinkling the washing.Crisping white bed-sheets. Stiffened starched saris. Off white and gold.
Red ants on yellow stones.
A hot cow feeling hot. Ahmoo in the distance. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Flowers quotes by Thomas S. Flowers
#148. Rebecca uttered a low dry laugh, not facetiously, but more like a stitch coming apart at the seam. A wound opened. Her eyes were opening to a world she had denied for so long. She looked up at Frank and knew, just like in the books, hatred, real hatred is a Gollum that hides under the mountain of our hearts. It buries itself deep underground where no light can touch. And it waits. Rebecca thought of Tolkien and Bilbo and Frodo and that old grey wizard, she thought that maybe they were right. Perhaps "there are older and fouler things in the deep places of the world - in the deep places of our hearts." And as she sat on the floor with Tom Johnson's Glock aimed at her husband's head, Rebecca looked into the space where his eyes should have been. She looked at what was now only darkness and felt something on the other side, something not her husband, looking back. #Quote by Thomas S. Flowers
Flowers quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#149. Don't neglect these tools in your journey : an eye to look and see and to differentiate flowers from leaves, a mind to comprehend and be focused, ears to listen and hear, a heart to understand what is truly worth our time and what not to give attention to, and a good strength to dare unceasingly in wit and with courage, focusing on only the true factors of the matters that truly matter for distinctive footprints in the end! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Flowers quotes by Daniel Keyes
#150. Because I want to see. I've got to know what's going to happen while I'm still enough in control to be able to do something about it. #Quote by Daniel Keyes
Flowers quotes by Dan Wells
#151. What could I say that wouldn't shock her even more? I need the mortuary because it connects me to death in a safe way? I need the mortuary because I need to see the bodies open up like flowers and talk to me and tell me what they know? #Quote by Dan Wells
Flowers quotes by Brigid Berlin
#152. I'm a real conservative. I never became a hippie, or a groupie. I never wore flowers in my hair. #Quote by Brigid Berlin
Flowers quotes by Robert Desnos
#153. The stranger was still smiling. He transformed himself into a rose bush and entwined me. My Christian education meant that ever since childhood I have had a horror of vice and it was not without a quite understandable terror that I discerned the pleasure I felt in the embrace of this vigorous bush whose branches gradually mingled with my limbs, my hair and my looks. When one of its flowers came apart in my mouth, I could feel myself grasping the sorcerer in my arms in my turn. He was transformed into a torrent, and I was a barge, into desert and I was smoke, into a car and I was a road, into a man and I was a woman. 'What we are doing is very wrong,' he said and was off. #Quote by Robert Desnos
Flowers quotes by Andy Warhol

Flowers quotes by HOT CHILI PAPEr
#155. Boys are cheats and liars, they're such a big disgrace. They will tell you anything to get to second base... ball, baseball he thinks he's gonna score. If you let him go all the way then you are a hor... ticulture studies flowers, geologist studies rocks. The only thing a guy wants from you is a place to put his cock... roaches, beetles, butterflies and bugs. Nothing makes him happier than a giant pair of jug... glers and acrobats, a dancing bear named Chuck. All guys really want to do is - forget it, no such luck. #Quote by HOT CHILI PAPEr
Flowers quotes by Rupert Brooke
#156. The War Sonnets: V. The Soldier
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven. #Quote by Rupert Brooke
Flowers quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#157. The earth is not a mere fragment of dead history, stratum upon stratum like the leaves of a book, to be studied by geologists and antiquaries chiefly, but living poetry like the leaves of a tree, which precede flowers and fruit
not a fossil earth, but a living earth; compared with whose great central life all animal and vegetable life is merely parasitic. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Flowers quotes by Kenneth Patchen
#158. As We Are So Wonderfully Done with Each Other"

As we are so wonderfully done with each other
We can walk into our separate sleep
On floors of music where the milkwhite cloak of childhood lies

O my lady, my fairest dear, my sweetest, loveliest one
Your lips have splashed my dull house with the speech of flowers
My hands are hallowed where they touched over your
soft curving.

It is good to be weary from that brilliant work
It is being God to feel your breathing under me

A waterglass on the bureau fills with morning . . .
Don't let anyone in to wake us. #Quote by Kenneth Patchen
Flowers quotes by Robert Plant
#159. Somone Told me there is a girl out there, with love in her eyes, and flowers in her hair. #Quote by Robert Plant
Flowers quotes by Hendrik Cramer
#160. The plants in the garden - the aloes, the almond tree, the rose tree and the iris - were afraid of her. The flowers withered under her breath and the touch of her hand was leprous for the leaves. The plants whose growth is belief, whose breathing is hope, whose immobility is confidence and whose calyx is prayer, the plants who kept watch into the night, hated this women with the secret force of stars. #Quote by Hendrik Cramer
Flowers quotes by Oscar Wilde
#161. There is an unknown land full of strange flowers and subtle perfumes, a land of which it is joy of all joys to dream, a land where all things are perfect and poisonous. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Flowers quotes by Lady Bird Johnson
#162. Flowers in the city are like lipstick on a woman-it just makes you look better to have a little color. #Quote by Lady Bird Johnson
Flowers quotes by Innocent III
#163. Oh! The vile indignity of the human condition! Oh! The undeserving condition of the human cowardice! Go and inquire the grass and the trees. They from themselves produce flowers, leaves and fruits; you from yourself, you produce nits, lice, and worms. They from themselves produce oil, wine, and balm; you from yourself send out mucous, urine, and dung. They from themselves send out the fragrance of sweetness; and you make of yourself an abomination of stench!"
Lothar of Segni, future Innocent III
quoted by Eugenio Garin in his History of Italian Philosophy #Quote by Innocent III
Flowers quotes by Ezra Pound
#164. FRANCESCA
You came in out of the night
And there were flowers in your hands,
Now you will come out of a confusion of people,
Out of a turmoil of speech about you.
I who have seen you amid the primal things
Was angry when they spoke your name
In ordinary places.
I would that the cool waves might flow over my mind,
And that the world should dry as a dead leaf,
Or as a dandelion seed-pod and be swept away,
So that I might find you again,
Alone. #Quote by Ezra Pound
Flowers quotes by Nitya Prakash
#165. In the garden of love, flowers don't die. #Quote by Nitya Prakash
Flowers quotes by Petra Hermans
#166. Around my hands, my face and spirit, all leaves of summer, spring, winter and autumn were falling all of a sudden in a garden, where flowers could not touch clouds, as I have seen it, earlier than my age. #Quote by Petra Hermans
Flowers quotes by Jen Turano
#167. Everett realized what he was going to have to do.
He was, much against his better judgment, going to have to seek out Miss Longfellow and beg her
on bended knee and with flowers, no doubt
to come work for him. #Quote by Jen Turano
Flowers quotes by Jerry Lynch
#168. Whether you are cooking, cleaning house, or planting flowers, try to concentrate on the textures, the smells, colors, tastes, sounds, all Zen moments of focused joy. #Quote by Jerry Lynch
Flowers quotes by S. Bear Bergman
#169. One bright pansy popping through a sidewalk crack will get weeded or stepped on; it's not until twenty fabulous flowers bust through and the pavement is ruined anyway that someone decides maybe it isn't a sidewalk at all, but a flower garden. So please, for the love of gender
go bloom. #Quote by S. Bear Bergman
Flowers quotes by Sue Monk Kidd
#170. A woman, nothing existed but the domestic sphere and those tiny flowers etched on the pages of my art book. For a woman to aspire to be a lawyer - well, possibly, the world would end. But an acorn grew into an oak tree, didn't it? #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Flowers quotes by Erasmus Darwin
#171. The colours of insects and many smaller animals contribute to conceal them from the larger ones which prey upon them. Caterpillars which feed on leaves are generally green; and earth-worms the colour of the earth which they inhabit; butter-flies, which frequent flowers, are coloured like them; small birds which frequent hedges have greenish backs like the leaves, and light-coloured bellies like the sky, and are hence less visible to the hawk who passes under them or over them. #Quote by Erasmus Darwin
Flowers quotes by John Sterling
#172. Repentance clothes in grass and flowers the grave in which the past is laid. #Quote by John Sterling
Flowers quotes by Brian Andreas
#173. The birds brought seeds & flowers & bits of brightly colored string & placed them in her hair while she slept so she would remember the wild joy of spring when she finally awoke. #Quote by Brian Andreas
Flowers quotes by Che Lan Vien
#174. To find happiness, it is not quite difficult thing. It is just enough to distinguish the blue of the sky from the pink of peach flowers which are opening out. #Quote by Che Lan Vien
Flowers quotes by Oliver Gaspirtz
#175. A cow's heaven is a flower's idea of hell. #Quote by Oliver Gaspirtz
Flowers quotes by Stephen E. Flowers
#176. For the history of left-hand-path ideas, the all-important figure of Odin underwent a radical, yet predictable, splitting of image. He was - like all the other gods - portrayed as the epitome of evil. In parts of Germany, the speaking of his name was forbidden. It is for this reason that the modern German name for the day of the week usually called after him was renamed Mittwoch, "Mid-Week," while Thor (German Donar) keeps his weekday name, Donnerstag. The original name survives in some German dialects as Wodenestag or Godensdach.28 However, even after Christian conversion he still retained his patronage over the ruling elite. All the Anglo-Saxon kings continued to claim descent from Woden,29 and in the English language he retains his weekday name, Wednesday (Woden's day). #Quote by Stephen E. Flowers
Flowers quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#177. We humans speak many languages; flowers on the contrary speak only one language: The language of beauty! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Flowers quotes by Thomas Hardy
#178. Ah, are you digging on my grave,
My loved one? -- planting rue?"
-- "No: yesterday he went to wed
One of the brightest wealth has bred.
'It cannot hurt her now,' he said,
'That I should not be true.'"

"Then who is digging on my grave,
My nearest dearest kin?"
-- "Ah, no: they sit and think, 'What use!
What good will planting flowers produce?
No tendance of her mound can loose
Her spirit from Death's gin.'"

"But someone digs upon my grave?
My enemy? -- prodding sly?"
-- "Nay: when she heard you had passed the Gate
That shuts on all flesh soon or late,
She thought you no more worth her hate,
And cares not where you lie.

"Then, who is digging on my grave?
Say -- since I have not guessed!"
-- "O it is I, my mistress dear,
Your little dog, who still lives near,
And much I hope my movements here
Have not disturbed your rest?"

"Ah yes! You dig upon my grave...
Why flashed it not to me
That one true heart was left behind!
What feeling do we ever find
To equal among human kind
A dog's fidelity!"

"Mistress, I dug upon your grave
To bury a bone, in case
I should be hungry near this spot
When passing on my daily trot.
I am sorry, but I quite forgot
It was your resting place. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Flowers quotes by Judith McNaught
#179. There now," she said to the flowers in an encouraging tone, "you have food and air. You'll be very happy and pretty in no time."
"Are you talking to the flowers?" Ian asked from behind her.
Elizabeth started and turned around on an embarrassed laugh. "They like it when I talk to them." Knowing how peculiar that sounded, she reinforced it by adding, "Our gardener used to say all living things need affection, and that includes flowers." Turning back to the garden, she shoveled the last of the compost around the flowers, then she stood up and brushed off her hands. Her earlier ruminations about him had abolished so much of her antagonism that as she looked at him now she was able to regard him with perfect equanimity. It occurred to her, though, that it must seem odd to him that a guest was rooting about in his garden like a menial. "I hope you don't mind," she said, nodding toward the garden, "but the flowers couldn't breathe with so many weeds choking them. They were crying out for a little room and sustenance."
An indescribable expression flashed across his face. "You heard them?"
"Of course not," Elizabeth said with a chuckle. "But I did take the liberty of fixing a special meal-well, compost, actually-for them. It won't help them very much this year, but next year I think they'll be much happier…"
She trailed off, belatedly noticing the worried look he gave the flowers when she mentioned fixing them "a meal." "You needn't look as if you expect them #Quote by Judith McNaught
Flowers quotes by Gennifer Flowers
#180. I met Bill Clinton in 1977 while I was working as a news reporter for KARK-TV in Little Rock, Arkansas. Shortly after we met, we began a sexual relationship that lasted for twelve years. #Quote by Gennifer Flowers
Flowers quotes by Justin Bieber
#181. Flowers are nice, but love is better. #Quote by Justin Bieber
Flowers quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#182. We are not interested in developing eternity or immortality, or in preventing being sick or being born. We are interested in doing something while we are alive, while we are breathing, while we can see the beauty of the snow, the flowers, the blue sky, the sunshine, and the many other things we can imagine. #Quote by Chogyam Trungpa
Flowers quotes by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
#183. As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing (2 Corinthians 6:10).

Sorrow was beautiful, but her beauty was the beauty of the moonlight shining through the leafy branches of the trees in the wood, and making little pools of silver here and there on the soft green moss below. When Sorrow sang, her notes were like the low sweet call of the nightingale, and in her eyes was the unexpectant gaze of one who has ceased to look for coming gladness. She could weep in tender sympathy with those who weep, but to rejoice with those who rejoice was unknown to her.

Joy was beautiful, too, but his was the radiant beauty of the summer morning. His eyes still held the glad laughter of childhood, and his hair had the glint of the sunshine's kiss. When Joy sang his voice soared upward as the lark's, and his step was the step of a conqueror who has never known defeat. He could rejoice with all who rejoice, but to weep with those who weep was unknown to him.

"But we can never be united," said Sorrow wistfully. "No, never." And Joy's eyes shadowed as he spoke. "My path lies through the sunlit meadows, the sweetest roses bloom for my gathering, and the blackbirds and thrushes await my coming to pour forth their most joyous lays."

"My path," said Sorrow, turning slowly away, "leads through the darkening woods, with moon-flowers only shall my hands be filled. Yet the sweetest of all earth-songs--the love song of the night--shall be mine; farewell, Joy, farewell."
#Quote by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
Flowers quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#184. That beauty may, for instance, be composed of lovely flowers, and glittering streams, and blue sky and white clouds; and yet the thing that impresses us most, and which we should be sorriest to lose, may be a thin grey film on the extreme horizon, not so large, in the space of the scene it occupies, as a piece of gossamer on a near-at-hand bush, nor in any wise prettier to the eye than the gossamer; but because the gossamer is known by us for a little bit of spider's work, and the other grey film is known to mean a mountain ten thousand feet high, inhabited by a race of noble mountaineers we are solemnly impressed by the aspect of it, and yet all the while the thoughts and knowledge which cause us to receive this impression are so obscure that we are not conscious of them. #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Flowers quotes by Osho
#185. God is not an ascetic, otherwise there would be no flowers, there would be no green trees, only deserts. God is not an ascetic, otherwise there would be no song in life, no dance in life - only cemeteries and cemeteries. God is not an ascetic; God enjoys life. #Quote by Osho
Flowers quotes by Debasish Mridha
#186. Always try to live in a wonderful world where the sun is always shining, flowers are always blooming, birds are always singing, and you are always busy with a joyful life. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Flowers quotes by Shannon Wiersbitzky
#187. There is nothing in the world more pathetic than a bunch of wilted dandelions. #Quote by Shannon Wiersbitzky
Flowers quotes by Maria Semple
#188. It's for survival. You need to be prepared for novel experiences because often they signal danger. If you live in a jungle full of fragrant flowers, you have to stop being so overwhelmed by the lovely smell because otherwise you couldn't smell a predator. That's why your brain is considered a discounting mechanism. It's literally a matter of survival." "That's cool. #Quote by Maria Semple
Flowers quotes by Shilpa Shetty
#189. I adore gardening and plan to take it up properly when I have a bit more time on my hands. Until then, I love pottering in garden centres. I'm totally low maintenance. I don't ask for fancy plants, just basic, long-lasting shrubs that look nice. But I am particular about flowers. #Quote by Shilpa Shetty
Flowers quotes by Douglas Coupland
#190. I imagine I sow cuttings of Anna-Louise's hair, like the fine stems of dried flowers, and watch sunflowers grow from the cuttings. I imagine I bury a pocket calculator with liquid crystals spelling her name, then watch the earth shoot forth lightning bolts. 'We should open up a seafood house together,' Anna-Louise says when she wants to torture me. Now that's love. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Flowers quotes by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
#191. On the first of May, with my comrades of the catechism class, I laid lilac, chamomile and rose before the altar of the Virgin, and returned full of pride to show my blessed posy. My mother laughed her irreverent laugh and, looking at my bunch of flowers, which was bringing the may-bug into the sitting-room right under the lamp, she said: Do you suppose it wasn't already blessed before? #Quote by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Flowers quotes by Betty Sue Flowers
#192. The emerging whole manifests locally. It manifests in particular communities, groups, and, ultimately, in us as individuals. #Quote by Betty Sue Flowers
Flowers quotes by Robert Loveman
#193. It is not raining to me,
It's raining daffodils;
In every dimpled drop I see
Wild flowers on distant hills. #Quote by Robert Loveman
Flowers quotes by Paul Harding
#194. The flowers Howard now walked among were the few last heirs to that brief local span of disaster and regeneration and he felt close to the sort of secrets he often caught himself wondering about, the revelations of which he only ever realized he had been in the proximity of after he became conscious of that proximity, and that phenomenon , of becoming conscious, was the very thing that whisked him away, so that any bit of insight or afterglow that remained but that was not accessible through words. He thought, But what about through grass and flowers and light and shadow? #Quote by Paul Harding
Flowers quotes by J.K. Rowling
#195. Gavin saw a grave purely as a marker for the place where a corpse was decomposing; a nasty thought, yet people took it into their heads to visit and bring flowers, as though it might yet recover. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Flowers quotes by Saleem Sharma
#196. Flowers say you're sorry.
A date says you've learnt your lesson.
A diamond says both the above.
All three and you're making her suspicious. #Quote by Saleem Sharma
Flowers quotes by Grace Terrell
#197. All flowers are not to be picked; some are meant to stay rooted so their beauty may continue to sing praises unto nature. #Quote by Grace Terrell
Flowers quotes by Phillip E. Johnson
#198. Evolutionary biologists are not content merely to explain how variation occurs within limits, however. They aspire to answer a much broader question-which is how complex organisms like birds, and flowers, and human beings came into existence in the first place. #Quote by Phillip E. Johnson
Flowers quotes by Nikki Rowe
#199. I'm not a girl that will lay in diamonds but I will run through the flowers of the seeds we plant together. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Flowers quotes by Julian Barnes
#200. I was deeply misled by Lady Chatterley's Lover, which seemed to insist that running naked through damp undergrowth with wild flowers entwined in your pubic hair was just about the closest thing to heaven. #Quote by Julian Barnes
