Florets - Floral Quote - # 166 - by Ngoc Minh Ngo

'Florets - Floral Quote' is a series of blog posts where I feature quotes by authors - mostly well known - but you will also find some obscure ones.

All the authors have written one or several books about flowers, green plants, gardening, interior styling or interior design. Many are experts in their field but what is the most important is that they are all passionate about flowers and plants.

I love books and in my ever growing library I look for quotes that I hope will be both inspiring and be useful while arranging flowers or green plants in your home.

Book cover-In Bloom

"The world is full of beauty, and few things are more beautiful than flowers. For millennia, flowers has been weaving their way into the fabric of our lives, claiming a central place in the human experience."

"Like all civilizations before us - from ancient Chinese and Egyptians to the Persians, Greeks, and Romans - we gather, grow, observe, admire, and record flowers for a myriad reasons.We celebrate them in songs and poems. We love and mourne with flowers in hand. We borrow their loveliness to embellish our home, adorn our dresses, and grace our table."
