Some flowers give out little or no odor, until crushed.
Abigail Alcott (Unitarian, reformer, suffragist) quoted by Eve LaPlante, My Heart Is Boundless p.xiii
I always think the flowers can see us and know what we are thinking about.
George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) (Unitarian, author)
Wild roses are fairest, and nature a better gardener than art.
Louisa May Alcott, A Long Fatal Love Chase (Unitarian, author)
Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of the character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.
Lydia Maria Child (Unitarian, author, reformer)
For gentle feelings, love, are flowers
That bloom thro’ life’s most clouded hours!
Frances Sargent Osgood, “May-Day in New England” (Unitarian, poet, author)
