Beautiful Flower Quotes for Inspiration and Reflection on Nature’s Gifts

Beautiful Flower Quotes for Inspiration and Reflection on Nature’s Gifts

Flowers enchant and inspire, uplift and refresh the spirit and soothe the soul.  Add poignant words and flower quotes can remind us of the simple beauty all around us and the difference it makes when we stop… truly stop to smell the flowers.

Here are some beautiful flower quotes to help you remember how special nature is and how much she means to us. And remember the joy a simple gift of flowers can be for others and for yourself.

There are a few famous favorites and we especially love the combination of these two flower quotes concepts:

“The earth laughs in flowers”, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and “The scent of a rose is like a kiss from God”, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. If we put these two together, it’s a reminder of the grace and majesty of God’s creation.

We’re so grateful for the exquisite beauty and wonder of flowers and all of nature.
