As a rule the word pansy is associated with weakness or of someone who may display effeminate qualities not in accordance with the rules of masculinity. Pansies display their delicate beauty in the colder temperatures of early spring when no other dare display their hardy foliage till summer. The pansy in the photo above was less than an inch in diameter, displaying a great deal of strength for it's size and cold hardiness. I say that when I look into the face of one, my loving thoughts will be that of tolerance to see only their strength.
"Nobody can keep on being angry if he or she looks into the heart of a pansy for a little while."
