Nobody sees a flower—really—it is so small it takes time—and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time. Georgia O’Keeffe
Addendum: Linda Sue's comment brought up another quote from Georgia O'Keeffe: I hate flowers. I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move. (My experience with daisies in a vase as models is that they DO move--toward the light source.) I'm sure a whole line of philosophy could be written from all this. I'm just thinking Ms. O'Keeffee had her moods like everyone else. But when you're in the public eye--it all goes on record.
