the little flower

The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.
--Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897), known as "The Little Flower of Jesus," Saint Therese was a Roman Catholic nun who was canonized a saint and recognized as a Doctor of the Church, one of only three women to receive that honor. Pope Pius XI called her "the greatest saint of modern times."
