"The splendor of the rose and the whitness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm."
— Therese of Lisieux
The flower symbolism associated with the daisy is purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity.
Daisies have been the subject of many verses. One favorite verse that everyone learns as a child is s/he loves me, s/he loves me not; s/he loves me, s/he loves me not.” The popularity of this verse has resulted in the daisy being called "love’s oracle." Like dozens of other flowers, the daisy has been associated with various deities. Historically, daisies were sacred to Freya and Ostara, both Germanic goddesses. The Catholic Church adopted it as a symbol of the Virgin Mary because ‘love conquers all things.
