Where you'd least expect them,
"Look and you will find it. What is unsought will go undetected."
"The Earth Laughs in Flowers."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made and forgot to put a soul into."
- Henry Ward Beecher
"If seeds in the black earth can turn into such beautiful roses, what might not the heart of man become in its long journey toward the stars?"
- G.K. Chesterton
