A Quote by Raphie on world trade center, wtc, windows on the world, wedding, flowers, roses, statue of liberty, loss, death, spirit, and september 11

I can still see the amber sunset and the Statue of Liberty through the newly-wedded paned-glass of Windows on the World that Sunday evening three weeks before the Towers fell. We left the wedding dozens of roses in hand the bride and groom needed not there was such a surfeit. That view I experienced is a sight that now exists for birds alone and, perchance, a lingering spirit or two; or, if the fates be cruel, a whispered echo of that golden-haired bartender's gorgeous smile.

A Quote by May Sarton on flowers, growth, and living dying

When I am alone the flowers are really seen; I can pay attention to them.  They are felt as presences.  Without them I would die...they change before my eyes.  They live and die in a few days; they keep me closely in touch with the process, with growth, and also with dying.  I am floated on their moments.

A Quote by Mamkhai Norbu Rinpoche on bee, flowers, teachings, deer, quiet, alone, seclusion, and teachers

From all kinds of flowers,
Seek teachings everywhere,
Like a deer that finds
A quiet place to graze,
Seek Seclusion to digest
All you have gathered. . .

A Quote by Georgia O'Keefe on friendship, time, flowers, sight, vision, perception, patience, and art

Still - in a way - nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small - we haven't the time - and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on flowers, spontaneity, wilderness, and cultivation

I hold no preference among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses!  Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!

Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)
