Famous quotes containing the word bloom:

    Martha: “What is Autumn?” Jan: “A second spring, where the leaves imitate the flowers. Maybe it would be so too with human beings that you would see bloom if only you helped them with your patience.”
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    “Awake,
    My fairest, my espoused, my latest found,
    Heaven’s last best gift, my ever new delight,
    Awake, the morning shines, and the fresh field
    Calls us: we lose the prime, to mark how spring
    Our tended plants, how blows the citron grove,
    What drops the myrrh and what the balmy reed,
    How nature paints her colors, how the bee
    Sits on the bloom extracting liquid sweet.”
    John Milton (1608–1674)
