As a gardener I love this one. I had seen it before, but not in while.

A rose can say I love you
Orchids can enthrall
But a weed bouquet in a chubby fist
Oh my, that says it all. Source Unknown

The World's Greatest Need
A little more kindness and a little less greed;
A little more giving and a little less need:
A little more smile and a little less frown:
A little less kicking a man when he's down;
A little more "we" and a little less "I";
A little more laughs and a little less cry;
A little more flowers on the pathway of life;
And fewer on graves at the end of the strife. C. Austin Miles

Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted. Source Unknown

You know you're getting old when you bend over to tie your shoes, and you wonder what else you can do while your down there. Source Unknown
