    umm, I can only think of one and I don't know where it's from... it could be from the ether...

    Not usually my type of post but...

    Large streams from little fountains flow. Tall oaks from little acorns grow. D. Everett (1791)

    Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen. John Steinbeck. *same goes for ochids*

    Heredity is nothing but stored environment. Luther Burbank

    Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the soul. Luther Burbank (again)

    Hey! Way to go! Some darned good ones in here so far!

    Keep em coming!

    And I was TOTALLY WRONG about the coasters. They ARE species coasters. They're called:

    Coaster rvo-nianum 'GreenCatt'!


    Somebody alert the RHS!

    And if you want to buy one instead of winning one, you can only find 'em (along with other stuff) at the Cafe Press gift stores Bruce set up a few years ago:

    The River Valley Orchidworks Ultra-Cool Stuff Gift Store

    AND

    The River Valley Orchidworks and Bruce's Ultra-Cool Stuff Gift Store





    Keep the quotations coming! More more more--some are really good!

    No coasters necessary, I just enjoy sharing
    (borrowing Sue's formatting):

    Rember it is better to grow one plant well than two badly.
    Edward Sprague Rand

    If you don't do it now, you'll be another year older when you do.
    Warren Miller

    The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

    OK...I needs me some new coasters...

    From my favorite author...(He's got better...and shorter...but these were on the net...)

    "Our individuality is all, all, that we have. There are those who barter it for security, those who repress it for what they believe is the betterment of the whole society, but blessed in the twinkle of the morning star is the one who nurtures and rides it, in grace and love and wit, from peculiar station to peculiar station along life's bittersweet route."

    Tom Robbins (1936 - ), Jitterbug Perfume

    "...to emphasize the afterlife is to deny life. To concentrate on Heaven is to create hell. In their desperate longing to transcend the disorderliness, friction, and unpredictability that pesters life; in their desire for a fresh start in a tidy habitat, germ-free and secured by angels, religious multitudes are gambling the only life they may ever have on a dark horse in a race that has no finish line."

    Tom Robbins, Skinny Legs and All

    "Its never too late to have a happy childhood."

    Tom Robbins, Still Life with Woodpecker

    "Disbelief in magic can force a poor soul into believing in government and business."

    Tom Robbins

    "He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes. He who does not ask a question remains a fool forever."
    -- Chinese proverb

    The flower is the poetry of reproduction.
    It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
    - Jean Giraudoux

    Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower
    could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply
    wasn't room for any other thought....
    - Sophie Scholl


    I loved reading all the posts!!
