Whom do you see in the face of the pansy?

I am a simple girl who likes small gestures.

Funny how little things can hugely change the way we see the world.

“Pray you, love, remember. And there is pansies, that's for thoughts.”
Ophelia in Hamlet Prince of Denmark

“Yet marked O where the bolt of Cupid fell. It fell upon a little western flower, Before milk-white, now purple with love's wound, And maidens call it love-in-idleness.”
Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream
