Are you wondering why a dangerous plant can be a source of motivational quotes or even motivation? We all know that sweet roses and violets have provided inspiration for writers and lovers for hundreds of years, from William Shakespeare and earlier. But has anyone been motivated by dangerous plants? Well yes, if you have ever been stung, sprayed with light sensitive chemicals or encountered a patch of poison ivy, you will most likely have been motivated to find some way of treating the problem and alleviating the pain. If you have planned on going camping, you may even have been motivated to look up any dangerous plants in the area you are going to, to check whether you need plant identification books, creams, lotions or warnings for children and pets.
