Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. ~ Hans Christian Andersen.
Thou winged blossom, liberated thing,
What secret tie binds thee to other flowers,
Still held within the garden’s fostering?
Will they too soar with the completed hours,
Take flight, and be like thee
Hovering at will o’er their parental bowers?
~ Thomas Wentworth Higginson
