“In joy or sadness flowers are our constant friends.”
Kakuzō Okakura, The Book Of Tea

“I read somewhere once that souls were like flowers,' said Priscilla.
'Then your soul is a golden narcissus,' said Anne, 'and Diana's is like a red, red rose. Jane's is an apple blossom, pink and wholesome and sweet.'
'And our own is a white violet, with purple streaks in its heart,' finished Priscilla.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea

Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower.
