"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly.  "One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower." - Hans Christian Andersen

This quote is from Andersen's story called "The Butterfly" written in 1861.  A rather depressing story, just like many of his stories, about a picky butterfly looking for the perfect bride who comes to the realization that his life is ending not the way he envisioned.  Despite its source, the quote itself is very hopeful, and we couldn't think of a better quote to be placed on the wall of our new Yaletown shop.

In keeping with Queensberry's philosophy, adding a little flower to your life is great... what a privilege and a joy it is to be able to provide a place that gives busy city people the chance to stop and smell the roses!
