[The lily] rises with the sun and sleeps with the moon. It loves heat and light, but it cannot truly bloom without rain. Nothing, it seems, is repellent to the flower. Flowers do not try to be beautiful, but not even Solomon could outdo the smallest shrub. That is because they bloom from within. Theirs is not superficial beauty, but the sort that lies latent within the human soul.~Mark DooleySource: Moral Matters, 4.3.2015
