Inspirational Sunflower Quotes

“Ah! sunflower, weary of time,

Who countest the steps of the sun,

And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,

Arise from their graves and aspire;

Where my sunflower wishes to go.”

During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.”
