  1. One of my favorite quotes:
    "What a desolate place would be a world without flowers?--It would be a face without a smile; a feast without a welcome.--Are not flowers the stars of the earth?--And are not our stars the flowers of heaven?" Clara L. Balfour

  8. I love that Lewis Carroll quote--so whimsical and yet so true at the same time--and the Jefferson quote is very powerful.
