“Linnaeus, the renowned Swedish botanist, was the son of a poor country clergyman who had a small flower garden in which he cultivated all the flowers which he could procure and his means would permit. From the earliest childhood of the son, he was taught to love and cultivate, and to rejoice with intense delight in the rich and varied colorings of the flowers, and in this way were created the tastes and desires which made Linnaeus the first botanist and naturalist of his age.”
