The Greek mathematician Archimedes said that with a long-enough lever and a fulcrum, he could move the world.
That’s a pretty lofty goal. What if you are just searching for the right words to accompany the flowers that you’re sending to a loved one?
Royer’s website offers more than 200 quotations and expressions to help you say what needs to be said. They cover everything from anniversaries and birthdays to love and marriage, business and education to sympathy and thank you.
For instance, here are seven ways to say you’re sorry:
1. “Accept these flowers in place of the words I said.”
2. “I wouldn’t have made a mistake with my mouth shut.”
3. “I’m wrong – you’re right.”
4. “I muffed it! I’m so sorry!”
5. “I’ll never forgive myself … but I’m hoping you will. I’m sorry.”
6. “I may not be perfect, but my apology is close.”
7. “Will these keys let me out of the doghouse? I’m sorry.”
Feel free to pick one or cobble together your own version from these suggestions.
We can’t promise that your words will move the world, but they will be a really nice complement to the flowers you send.
