Maude: I should like to change into a sunflower most of all. They’re so tall and simple. What flower would you like to be?

Harold: I don’t know. One of these, maybe.

Maude: Why do you say that?

Harold:
Because they’re all alike.

Maude: Oooh, but they’re not.  Look.  See, some are smaller, some are fatter, some grow to the left, some to the right, some even have lost some petals. All kinds of observable differences. You see, Harold, I feel that much of the world’s sorrow comes from people who are this, [she points to a daisy] yet allow themselves be treated as that.  [she gestures to a field of daisies]

daisies are my favorite.
