“I was for a while troubled with the haunting fear that if I handled the flower freely its bloom would fade—the sweet charm of freshness would leave it. I did not know then that it was no transitory blossom, but rather the radiant resemblance of one, cut in an indestructible gem.”

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Plumbago

When we build … let it not be for present delights nor for present use alone.

This our fathers did for us! – John Ruskin
