“The Earth laughs in flowers.” Wildflowers in a field, what a wonderful symbol of the joy of nature and our Earth! When I read Ralph Waldo Emerson’s words, I cannot help but smile inside. Flowers are special gifts that rejuvenate the spirit; their heady fragrances and gorgeous colors soothe our weary souls.
We need the uplifting power of nature now more than ever. The Earth is devoted and steadfast with her gifts. In a world that feels increasingly troubled and stressful, flowers help us reconnect to our inherent joyful soul center.
“Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them.” ~ A.A. Milne
“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
“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.”
~ Pablo Neruda
“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”
“Normality is a paved road: It’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.”
~ Vincent van Gogh
“If you love a flower that lives on a star, it is sweet to look at the sky at night. All the stars are a-bloom with flowers…”
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.”
