“All of us, children and adults, are beautiful flowers.  Our eyelids are exactly like rose petals, especially when our eyes are closed.  Our ears are like morning glories listening to the sound of birds.  Our lips form a beautiful flower every time we smile.  And our two hands are a lotus flower with five petals.  The practice is to keep our “flowerness” alive and present, not just for our own benefit but for the happiness of everyone.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh


“The sun is shining – the sun is shining.  That is the magic.  The flowers are growing – the roots are stirring.  That is the magic.  Being alive is the Magic – being strong is the Magic.  The Magic is in me – the Magic is in me. . . It’s in every one of us.”

– Master Colin from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett


“Love is the rose that lends a pure fragrance to life.”

—Amma, “Lead Us to Purity”, p. 138


“The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.”

—Thich Nhat Hanh
