“Realms and islands were
As plates dropped from his pocket.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“What a lovely thing a rose is!... Our highest assurance of the goodness of Providence seems to me to rest in the flowers. All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But the rose is an extra.

—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (18591930)
