"The principles of unity is nature's true gift to design. A brilliant union of color, form and function, the flower subordinates every other principles to this goal. Unity is the secret of its survival and the source of its attraction.
Unity may be one of harmony or one of diversity. Unity of harmony possesses a satisfying sense of oneness as its aesthetic quality. Unity of diversity produces a sense of wholeness through a complex interplay of agreement or adaptation among unlike things. "
