Famous quotes containing the word flowers:
“Yes, Heaven is thine; but this
Is a world of sweets and sours;

And the shadow of thy perfect bliss
Is the sunshine of ours.”

Smothered with its own smoke in the human brain-vault: no thought
outside; a certain measure in phenomena:
The fountains of the boiling stars, the flowers on the foreland, the
ever-returning roses of dawn.”
—Robinson Jeffers (18871962)
