“What a desolate place would be a world without a flower! It would be a face without a smile, a feast without a welcome. Are not flowers the stars of the earth, and are not our stars the flowers of the heaven.”
– Clara Lucas Balfour
(I know I’ve used this quote before, but I really love it.)

The quote you have posted is by Clara Lucas Balford. A. J. Balford was not an author but a former Prime Minister of the UK in the 1800. If you love the quote, give the true author some love. Mary
Thank you for letting me know. The website from which I acquired the quote obviously attributed it to the wrong person.
