Emma Goldman said:

"I'd rather have roses on my table 

than diamonds on my neck"

And I say I really like flowers but yes I want a diamond too. 
I have not seen any in my life yet.

( I embroidered this tablecloth)

This is a beautiful poem wrote for Nezahualcótl:
Nezahualcóyotl was a philosopher, warrior, architect, poet and ruler (tlatoani) of the city-state of Texcoco in pre-Columbian Mexico

Con Flores Escribes…

Con flores escribes, Dador de la vida,
Con cantos das color,
Con cantos sombreas
A los que han de vivir en la tierra.
Después destruirás a águilas y tigres,
Sólo en tu libro de pinturas vivimos,
Aquí sobe la tierra.
Con tinta negra borrarás
Lo que fue la hermandad,
La comunidad, la nobleza.
Tú sombreas a los que han de vivir en la tierra.

With flowers You paint...
O Giver of Life!
With songs You give color,
with songs You shade
those who will live on the earth.
Later You will destroy eagles and tigers:
we live only in Your painting
here, on the earth.
With black ink You will blot out
all that was friendship,
brotherhood, nobility.
You give shading
to those who will live on the earth.
We live only in Your book of paintings,
here on the earth
