Flowers teach us that nothing is permanent: not their beauty, not even the fact that they will inevitably wilt, because they will still give new seeds. Remember this when you feel joy, pain, or sadness. Everything passes, grows old, dies, and is reborn.[As flores nos ensinam que nada é permanente; nem a beleza, nem o fato de murcharem, porque darão novas sementes. Lembre-se disso quando sentir alegria, dor ou tristeza. Tudo passa, envelhece, morre e renasce.]
