Excerpt from The American Legion Weekly, Vol. 4: May 5, 1922
No, I think daisies were not meant to eat, but to look at, to look at nodding in the fields, making a white mass of bloom in the corner of the garden or along the path to the door, above all woven in a wreath and set on the head of a little girl. The daisy is a beautiful ﬂower, but yet, in the good old sense, it is a homely ﬂower. Everybody knows it, everybody loves it, everybody can find it near his house, and, if he wants to, dig it up for nothing and plant it in his garden. And because it is a homely ﬂower, a democratic ﬂower, and the ﬂower best beloved of all American children, I'm glad the Legion' chose it, and I hope every member will plant it by his house, as a symbol of this democracy of the beauty of com mon things.
