“The voice of beauty speaks softly; it creeps only into the most fully awakened souls.” ~ Frederick Nietsche
“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” ~ Anne Frank
“Beauty is before me,
And beauty behind me,
Above me and below me
Hovers the beautiful.
I am surrounded by it,
I am immersed in it.
In my youth,
I am aware of it,
And, in old age
I shall walk quietly
The beautiful trail.
In beauty it is begun,
In beauty it is ended.”
~ Navajo Prayer
“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
It’s another one of those “beauty amidst beauty” kind of days…it’s everywhere at this time of year. These are Marguerite Daisies. Aren’t they beautiful? 🙂
Thanks to my oldest son for these flowers, which are tucked into a large bouquet. They look like they’re a part of the hydrangea family of flowers, but I’m not sure. Beauty amidst a lot of beauty. 🙂 A celebration is approaching, for me, and my children know the way to my heart…love and flowers.
A daisy named “Marguerite”… 🙂
A drooping pink poppy…before it was invited to join me indoors. It had no choice really, the answer had to be “yes,” and now I have a bouquet of poppies on my desktop. 🙂
“If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
