„Each flower her son, and every tree her daughter.“

—  Vita Sackville-West, Context: She walks among the loveliness she made, Between the apple-blossom and the water— She walks among the patterned pied brocade, Each flower her son, and every tree her daughter. "The Island", in Bulletin of the Garden Club of America (1929), p. 1, also in Collected Poems (1934), p. 54

„A thousand flowers every rod,
A stately tree on every rood;
Ten thousand leaves on every tree,
And each a miracle to me;
And yet there be men who question God!“

—  Joaquin Miller American judge 1837 - 1913
Context: A thousand miles of mighty wood Where thunder-storms stride fire-shod; A thousand flowers every rod, A stately tree on every rood; Ten thousand leaves on every tree, And each a miracle to me; And yet there be men who question God! Epigraph, Ch. 2 : Twenty Carats Fine.

„Under the olive trees, from the ground
Grows this flower, which is a wound.“

—  Stephen Spender English poet and man of letters 1909 - 1995
Context: Under the olive trees, from the ground Grows this flower, which is a wound. It is easier to ignore Than the heroes' sunset fire Of death plunged in their willed desire Raging with flags on the world's shore. "The Coward"
