Quotes about Creation

I'm running late this morning so I thought I'd share with you some quotes about beauty in creation that I found the other day. 

"All seasons are beautiful for the person who carries happiness within." Horace Friess
"Flowers are words which even a baby can understand." Quentin Crisp
"Where flowers bloom so does hope." Lady Bird Johnson
"What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly." Richard Bach
"A butterfly lands where it pleases and pleases where it lands." Anonymous
"A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song." Chinese proverb
"What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer." Gertrude Jekyll
"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole." Roger Caras
"How kind you were to open the gates of heaven and give me that little glimpse of Paradise." From an 18th-Century letter

What are some of your favorite quotes about beauty? I'd love to know. Please leave me a comment.

Hi, I love quotes and I look forward to leaving some for your own reading pleasure.

But alas, today is a very busy one, so I'll have to do it another time.

In fact, the reason I bumped into your blog, was because I googled the saying "How kind you were to open the Gates of Heaven..." to see if I could find who wrote it. I wanted to use that very quote today and there you have it in your blog. (See, I think we're kindred spirits, as Anne of Green Gables used to say).... smiling...
