Primrose features

Bountiful Primroses, With outspread heart that needs the rough leaves’ care. (George MacDonald)

O fairest flower! no sooner blown but blasted, Soft silken primrose fading timelessly. (John Milton)

Barely has the snow become water to hydrate the soil, than the primrose opens. She is the colour of soft baby dreams, of clouds infused with gold and stirred with milk. In the middle is hearty tangerine, as if she blushed from the first kiss of spring. I take a moment feel the almost-silent happiness that comes from this simple flower, for in all this crazy world she has the courage to bloom so boldly. (Angela Abraham)

Different from all other essences in the world the smell of primroses has a sweetness that is faint and tremulous, and yet possesses a sort of tragic intensity. There exists in this flower, its soft petals, its cool, crinkled leaves, its pinkish stalk that breaks at a touch, something which seems able to pour its whole self into the scent it flings on the air. Other flowers have petals that are fragrant. The primrose has something more than that. The primrose throws its very life into this essence of itself which travels upon the air. (John Cowper Powys)

“They say primroses make a capital salad,” said Lord St. Jerome. (Benjamin Disraeli)

Do you see how love works wonders, that when the snow has melted, where a pair of lovers rested, the first primroses sprout? (Robert Hamerling)

Primrose path

The primrose way to the everlasting bonfire. (William Shakespeare)

Do not, as some ungracious pastors do, Show me the steep and thorny way to heaven, Whiles, like a puff’d and reckless libertine, Himself the primrose path of dalliance treads, And recks not his own rede. (William Shakespeare)

I threw the pearl of my soul into a cup of wine. I went down the primrose path to the sound of flutes.I lived on honeycomb. (Oscar Wilde)

The route from the desire for rationality via the desire for objectivity to descriptivism is a well trodden one; but it is nevertheless a primrose path; for, as we shall see, it leads those who follow it into one or another form of relativism, which is precisely what these thinkers are trying to avoid. They can only avoid it by retracing their steps. (Stuart Shanker)

Fiction and primroses

If I remain unpublished, it will be the punishment of all the crowns I have braided myself in my primrose. (Gustave Flaubert)

so cheeky,
mischievous violets
Hide with diligence;
Whatever else
stirs and weaves there,
Enough, the spring
It works and lives. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Already the daffodils were showing their buds, the tips of which were turning yellow, the earthen lilacs were sprouting their little violet-spotted stems, and from the center of the wrinkled leaves of the primroses were emerging buds that seemed ready to bloom. (Hector Malot)

Life and primroses

Life is very tough and fragile at the same time, it never backs down or surrenders, but will break open to reveal its beauty and ugliness.
