“I’m not looking for only today. I’m looking for business tomorrow, next month, next year. So, I want the people that I sell my flowers to come back, too. So, you have to sell them something nice, where when they take it back, they can come back and say, ‘Oh, the leis were beautiful.’ ” —Bessie Watson
