"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand." -Woodrow Wilson

The Carolina Lily is a cousin of the larger but very similar Turk's Cap Lily which gets its name from the sharply curved petals which resemble turbans.
