Flower Quotes and Captions: The Complete Collection

Flowers are one of nature’s most magnificent gifts, it’s no surprise there are so many flower quotes out there. A single bloom has the power to express love, bring joy, delight the senses, and elicit awestruck oohs and aahs from even the toughest of crowds. Therefore, comprising an infinite array of colours, shapes, sizes, textures, and so much more, flowers play a key role in all of the major events of our lives. 

In fact, so captivating are they that there was even a time in the 17th Century in Holland when tulips were more even valuable than gold! But the value of flowers goes way beyond their monetary worth. Research shows that flowers have the ability to elicit positive emotions in people that can last for as long as three days! This is much longer than the effect that most of our favourite natural mood boosters, such as coffee and chocolate, can achieve.

As a result, so much has been written and spoken about the precious flower. So let’s explore the many flower quotes and captions from the prose, poetry, and songs that have been composed over thousands of years about the humble flower.
