You must have heard Richard Feynman's monologue on the beauty of a flower from the scientist's viewpoint.
It was aired at the very beginning of the interesting 1981 BBC program The Pleasure of Finding Things Out.
But this may be the first time when you're encouraged to watch this animation that was created on the background of Feynman's wise words.
Incidentally, a language question: is Feynman's pronouncement of the word "interesting" the most common way to do so in the U.S. English? I believe that e.g. Leonard Susskind says the word in the same way but it's still rare. Is it some kind of a New York City accent?
In the monologue above, Feynman forgot to say that science also allows you to do various things with the flower which make us very happy. For example, you may squeeze an orange juice out of it: :-)
