Here are cool mosses deep,
  And thro' the moss the ivies creep,
    And in the stream the long-leaved flowers weep,
      And from the craggy ledge the poppy hangs in sleep.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        Th Lotos-Eaters--Choric Song (pt. I)

The daisy, primrose, violet darkly blue;
  And polyanthus of unnumbered dyes.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Spring (st. 8)

A snow of blossoms, and a wild of flowers.
      - Thomas Tickell

He who does not love flowers has lost all love and fear of God.
      - Ludwig Tieck

There is to the poetical sense a ravishing prophecy and winsome intimation in flowers that now and then, from the influence of mood of circumstance, reasserts itself like the reminiscence of childhood, or the spell of love.
      - Henry Theodore Tuckerman

To analyze the charms of flowers is like dissecting music; it is one of those things which it is far better to enjoy than to attempt to understand.
      - Henry Theodore Tuckerman

Take the flower from my breast, I pray thee,
  Take the flower, too, from out my tresses;
    And then go hence; for, see, the night is fair,
      The stars rejoice to watch thee on thy way.
      - collected by Helene Vacaresco,
        Bard of the Dimbovitza; Romanian Folksongs

Fade, flowers, fade! Nature will have it so; 'tis but what we in our autumn do.
      - Edmund Waller

I regard them, as Charles the Emperor did Florence, that they are too pleasant to be looked upon except on holidays.
      - Izaak Walton

A love-tint flushes the wind-flower's cheek,
  Rich melodies gush from the violet's beak,
    On the rifts of the rock, the wild columbines grow,
      Their heavy honey-cups bending low.
      - Mrs. Sarah Helen Power Whitman

These children of the meadows born
  Of sunshine and of showers!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

Along the river's summer walk,
  The withered tufts of asters nod;
    And trembles on its arid stalk
      The hoar plume of the golden-rod.
        And on a ground of sombre fir,
          And azure-studded juniper,
            The silver birch its buds of purple shows,
              And scarlet berries tell where bloomed the sweet wild-rose!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier,
        The Last Walk in Autumn

Lovely flowers are smiles of God's goodness.
      - Dr. Samuel Wilberforce

But when they had unloosed the linen band,
  Which swathed the Egyptian's body,--lo! was found,
    Closed in the wasted hollow of her hand,
      A little seed, which, sown in English ground,
        Did wondrous snow of starry blossoms bear,
          And spread rich odours through our springtide air.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde),
        Athanasia (st. 2)

There is to me a daintiness about early flowers that touches me like poetry. They blow out with such a simple loveliness among the common herbs of pastures, and breathe their lives so unobtrusively, like hearts whose beatings are too gentle for the world.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis

The very flowers are sacred to the poor.
      - William Wordsworth, Admonition

To me the meanest flower that blows can give
  Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Intimations of Immortality

And 'tis my faith that every flower
  Enjoys the air it breathes.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Lines Written in Early Spring

The flower of sweetest smell is shy and lowly.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Sonnet--Not Love, Not War, Nor, etc.

Hope smiled when your nativity was cast,
  Children of Summer!
      - William Wordsworth,
        Staffa Sonnets--Flowers on the Top of the Pillars at the Entrance of the Cave

The mysteries that cups of flowers infold
  And all the gorgeous sights which fairies do behold.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Stanzas written in Thomson's Castle of Indolence

There bloomed the strawberry of the wilderness;
  The trembling eyebright showed her sapphire blue,
    The thyme her purple, like the blush of Even;
      And if the breath of some to no caress
        Invited, forth they peeped so fair to view,
          All kinds alike seemed favourites of Heaven.
      - William Wordsworth,
        The River Duddon--Flowers (VI)

Pansies, lilies, kingcups, daisies,
  Let them live upon their praises.
      - William Wordsworth, To the Small Celandine

Let one thousand flowers bloom.
      - Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-Tung) (Chairman Mao)
