* In the book, The Time Traveler mentions that Weena used to put flowers in his pockets; he brought two of them with him to the present. At the end, the Narrator wonders about the fate of the Time Traveler and mankind, he closes with this: "And I have by me, for my comfort, two strange white flowers—shrivelled now, and brown and flat and brittle—to witness that even when mind and strength had gone, gratitude and a mutual tenderness still lived on in the heart of man."
