The violets in the mountains…

The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks. – Tennessee Williams

Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.”  – John Keats

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
Edna St. Vincent Millay, “Afternoon on a Hill”

Break open a cherry tree and there are no flowers, but the spring breeze brings forth myriad blossoms. – Ikkyu Sojun

The fountain is my speech.  The tulips are my speech.  The grass and trees are my speech.  – George Delacorte

Give me books, fruit, French wine and fine weather and a little music out of doors, played by someone I do not know.  I admire lolling on a lawn by a water-lilied pond to eat white currants and see goldfish: and go to the fair in the evening if I’m good.  There is not hope for that –one is sure to get into some mess before evening. – John Keats
