" If your heart is a volcano,
 how shall you expect
 flowers to bloom? "

Khalil Gibran

" Why should I be unhappy?
 Every parcel of my being 
is in full bloom. "


" How does the Meadow flower 
its bloom unfold? 
Because the lovely little flower 
is free down to its root, 
and in that freedom bold. "

William Wordsworth

" What, I sometimes wonder, 
would it be like if I lived in a country 
where winter is a matter of a few chilly days 
and a few weeks' rain; 
where the sun is never far away, 
and the flowers bloom all year long? "

Anna Neagle


" For me its balmy airs are always blowing, 
its summer seas flashing in the sun; 
the pulsing of its surf-beat in my ear. . . 
in my nostrils still lives the breath of flowers 
that perished twenty years ago. "

Mark Twain [on Hawaii]
 Paradise of the Pacific, April 1910
