I would rather have one little rose from the garden of a friend than to have the choicest flowers when my stay on earth must end. I would rather have a pleasant word in kindness said to me than flattery when my heart is still, and life has ceased to be. I would rather have a loving smile from friends I know are true than tears shed ’round my casket when to this world I bid adieu. Bring me all your flowers today, whether pink or white or red; I’d rather have one blossom now than a truckload when I’m dead. Anonymous
