    Wonderful flower and wonderful quote… does ‘man’ mean ‘nobody’??

      I took the quote to mean ‘Human’ as in the human race. I am now wondering how we could change the quote to make it more clear without changing the meaning of the quote.

        man is a direct literal translation from German-
        “Eine Blume kann nicht ohne Sonnenschein blühen, und Mann kann nicht ohne Liebe leben”

        The German word ‘Mann’ wouldtranslate into English as the more formal ‘one’ as in “one cannot live without love”

    Sunshine being compared to love…seems appropriate!
