Excerpt from The Language of Flowers, With Illustrative Poetry: To Which Is Now First Added, the Calendar of Flowers

But little study will be requisite for the science which we teach. Nature has been before us. We must, however, premise two or three rules. When a ¿ower is presented in its natural position, the senti ment is to be understood affirmatively; when re versed, negatively. For instance, a rose-bud, with its leaves and thorns, indicates fear with hope but, if reversed, it must be construed as saying you may neither fear nor hope. Again, divest the same rose-bud of its thorns, and it permits the most sanguine hope; deprive it of its petals, and retain the thorns, and the worst fears may be entertained. The expression of every ¿ower may be thus varied by varying its state or position. The Marigold is emblematical of pain; place it on the head and it signifies trouble of mind; on the heart, the pangs of love; on the bosom, the disgusts of ennui. The pronoun I is expressed by inclining the symbol to the right, and the pronoun than by inclining it to the left.
