flowery in a quote

"The flowery style is not unsuitable to public speeches or addresses, which amount only to compliment. The lighter beauties are in their place when there is nothing more solid to say but the flowery style ought to be banished from a pleading, a sermon, or a didactic work."

"God did not intend the human family to be wafted to heaven on flowery beds of ease."
