Solomon in All His


Solomon in All His Glory...

I hope that while so many people are out smelling the flowers, someone is taking the time to plant some. Herbert Rappaport

He is happiest who hath power to gather wisdom from a flower. Mary Howitt

The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers. Thich Nhat Hanh

Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small it takes time - we haven't time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time. Georgia O'Keeffe

Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day - like writing a poem, or saying a prayer. Anne Morrow Lindbergh


Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into.
Henry Ward Beecher

I hate flowers-I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move. Georgia O'Keeffe

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. Lydia M. Child

Flowers ... that are so pathetic in their beauty, frail as the clouds, and in their colouring as gorgeous as the heavens... Thomas De Quincey

My wife once planted morning glories in our vegetable garden. They took over the corn and strangled it to death. If she ever does that again, I am going to tie her arms to her sides with baling twine. Fred First
