Not sure which quote to use?

Listed below are 11 beautiful flower quotes that are definitely worth remembering. 

1. If We Could See the Miracle of a Single Flower Clearly, Our Whole Life Would Change

This quote from Buddha is a great one to write in a card to accompany a gift of a single flower.

It's also a great reminder to focus on the small things in life and not take them for granted. Often, it's the details that seem the least meaningful that end up mattering the most.

2. Flowers Don’t Worry About How They’re Going to Bloom. They Just Open Up and Turn Toward the Light and That Makes Them Beautiful

If you're purchasing some flowers for someone who's going through a difficult or stressful time (and if you're not planning to, you should, as flowers have been proven to help relieve stress), this quote from Jim Carrey would be a great one to include in the card.

It's a good reminder that everything happens in its own time and we all need to enjoy the process a little more.

3. Flowers Don't Tell, They Show

This quote from Stephanie Skeem couldn't be truer.

Flowers don't have to tell you how beautiful they are. They just show you. This quote helps remind us to let our actions do the talking for us.

Instead of talking about what we deserve and how great we are, we ought to just show people by the way we act and present ourselves to the world.

4. Many Eyes Go Through the Meadow, but Few See the Flowers in It

Ralph Waldo Emerson did a great job of summing up one of the major problems in the world today. Everyone is so busy going about their day that they don't stop to notice the details and see the beauty in the mundane moments.

Use this quote when you're buying flowers for yourself or a friend who needs to slow down a bit.

5. Flowers Always Make People Better, Happier and More Helpful; They are Sunshine, Food and Medicine for the Soul

Luther Burbank's message about flowers is a great one that can accompany almost any bouquet.

If someone (maybe even you) needs to feel better, happier, and more helpful, a beautiful bouquet with this quote attached to it is sure to help guide them in the right direction.

6. Love is the Answer, and You Know That for Sure; Love is a Flower, You've Got to Let it Grow

For those who are looking for the perfect message to accompany a bouquet being sent to a loved one, you can't go wrong with this quote from the incredible John Lennon. It'll help to bring a smile to any recipient's face.

7. If You Look the Right Way, You Can See That the Whole World is a Garden

Frances Hodgson Burnett definitely got it right with this quote. Use it with someone who's struggling to stay positive to remind them that, if they look at any situation long enough, they'll be able to find a silver lining in it. 

8. If I Had a Flower for Every Time I Thought of You... I Could Walk Through My Garden Forever

Here's another great love quote — this one from Alfred Lord Tennyson — to use when sending flowers to a partner or romantic interest.

Flowers themselves are the perfect choice to show someone you're thinking of them, but this sweet message in a card will make the bouquet even more meaningful.

9. For Happiness One Needs Security, but Joy can Spring Like a Flower Even from the Cliffs of Despair

This quote from Anne Morrow Lindbergh is perfect for anyone who's going through a difficult time.

It serves as a reminder that there's something beautiful to be found in every moment of our lives, even those that are the most challenging. It also reminds us that we can grow and thrive even when life is difficult.

10. A Flower Does Not Think of Competing with the Flower Next to It. It Just Blooms

If you're putting together a flower bouquet for a recent graduate, this is a wonderful quote to include in their card.

When you're graduating from high school or college, it's easy to feel as though you're not prepared for the real world or not doing enough.

This quote will help to remind the recipient that they have plenty of time to become who they want to be. They'll get there in their own time. 

11. You're Only Here for a Short Visit. Don't Hurry, Don't Worry. And be Sure to Smell the Flowers Along the Way

These days, it's easy to feel as though we don't have time to do any of the things we want to do. It's true that we are definitely busier than we once were.

That's why it's more important than ever for us to heed the words of Walter Hagen and stop and smell the flowers every once in a while.
