In the ancient Greek religion, Narcissus was a dude so in love with himself that all he did all day was sit and gaze at his image reflected in the water of a pond. Zeus saw this, and, being the ironic bugger he is ( I say “is” because we really can’t prove Zeus doesn’t exist, can we?), turned him into a flower that droops downwards in order to see its reflection in water. We get the name of the flowering bulbs we call narcissus from this story. And we get the term “narcissist” from it which refers to people who are in love with themselves and their own reflections so much they exclude all else. Some of the flowering bulbs in this group are daffodils, paper whites, and jonquils. Here are some pictures of narcissists you may very well know, not all of them are flowers.
