What do flowers say? Great Quotations and more
Flowers and Smiles
Ever imagined a world without flowers? Colorless, all that amazing textures of the velvety petals missing from the earth, what would then signify the coming of Spring?
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
It's amazing how flowers can actually touch your soul, thrill you deeply with their silent but phenomenal appearance. Flowers are indeed indispensible on our planet earth. Just read the quote:
"People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us." ~ Iris Murdoch
Indeed flowers are worthy of all the madness of joy. They spread happiness in form of infinite colors.
Earth laughs in flowers. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
While you'll many gardens where earth smiles, it's the forests with trees laden by flowers, the valleys full of buds to blossom in stunning colors where the Earth truly laughs.
Fragrance and Symbolism
Perfumes are the feelings of flowers. ~ Heinrich Heine
When god created flowers, he must have felt, something so beautiful, and just pleasing one sense? Not done. And thus was added the fragrance which is fresh, delightful, sweet and so amazing that artificially created perfumes - where great effort is spent so that they are pleasing to our smelling sense - are also nothing, but a feeling of flowers.
Flowers are so beautiful, and so symbolic - almost all writers and poets take aid of flowers to express their thoughts in their creations. Some preach by mentioning thorns accompanying flowers, others might just use them as subtle innuendos, yet others can be more direct.
The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life. ~ Jean Giraudoux
Indeed the velvety beauty of flowers could be symbolic of "eternal seductiveness of life" but at the same time, flowers also depict the finite life with the short duration of existence. So, what you absorb is rather who you are, flowers actually offer it all.
Flowers are without hope. Because hope is tomorrow and flowers have no tomorrow. ~Antonio Porchia
It's amazing though how flowers with small lives manage to spread beauty and smiles which humans are often unable to accomplish in our many years of life. In fact even after their life is over they are still manage to carry the remnants of the colors and serenity.
Flowers whisper "Beauty!" to the world, even as they fade, wilt, fall. ~ Dr. SunWolf
