Flower Quotes

“Our national flower is the concrete cloverleaf.”

Lewis Mumford, 'The Culture of Cities' (1938)

 

"How many flowers there are which only serve to produce essences, which could have been made into savory dishes."

Charles Pierre Monselet, French author (1825-1888)

 

"Please don't eat the daisies."

Jean Kerr, author

 

Honey comes out of the air....At early dawn the leaves of trees are found bedewed with honey.... Whether this is the perspiration of the sky or a sort of saliva of the stars, or the moisture of the air purging itself, nevertheless it brings with it the great pleasure of its heavenly nature. It is always of the best quality when it is stored in the best flowers.”

Pliny (A.D. 23-79) ‘Natural History’, book 20

 

“Botany, n.  The science of vegetables -- those that are not good to eat, as well as those that are. It deals largely with their flowers, which are commonly badly designed, inartistic in color, and ill-smelling.”

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) 'The Devil's Dictionary' (1911)
