He that has two cakes of bread,
let him sell one of them for some flowers
of the Narcissus,
for bread is food for the body,
but Narcissus is food of the soul.
- Mohammed (c. 570-632 AD)

Daffodil Tattoo Symbolism and Meaning
We push our way through obstacles in life; we struggle; we overcome our fears to emerge stronger, just like a daffodil. After a harsh winter, a daffodil blooms, making its way through the snow; bringing joy and cheer on everybody's faces. Daffodil is a symbol of hope, of overcoming obstacles, and finally emerging victorious. It is the harbinger of spring, and all good things that accompany it.
It is one of the very first flowers to bloom, and thus holds a lot of importance. It stands for forgiveness, and is considered as a very uplifting symbol. It represents beautiful eyes in Persian literature. It is also the symbol of Chinese New Year. Daffodil has negative connotations in Greece, as it is associated with death in the Greek Mythology.
