Flower by the roadside


Excerpt from a 1906 Young Woman’s Journal article by David O. McKay, ‘True Beauty’, Pg. 360: 1

“Girls, the flower by the roadside, that catches the dust of every traveler is not the one to be admired, and is seldom if ever plucked; but the one blooming away up on the hillside, protected by a perpendicular cliff is the flower with the virgin perfume, the one the boy will almost risk his life to possess.”
