Rose Quotes 1 - 2 - 3
The perfume of roses are like exquisite chords of music composed of many odor notes harmoniously blended.
N. F. Miller

"For if I wait," said she,
"Till time for roses be,
For the moss rose and the musk rose,
Maiden-blush and royal-dusk rose,-
What glory then for me
In such a company?-
Roses plenty, roses plenty
And one nightingale for twenty?"
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
A Lay of the Early Rose.

How did it happen that their lips came together? How does it happen that birds sing, that snow melts, that the rose unfolds, that the dawn whitens behind the stark shapes of trees on the quivering summit of the hill? A kiss, and all was said.
Victor Hugo

There comes a holy
and transparent time
when every touch
of beauty
opens the heart
to tears.
This is the time
the Beloved of heaven
is brought tenderly on earth.
This is the time
of the opening
of the Rose.

Days of wine and roses laugh and run away,
Like a child at play.

Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden.

What was whispered to the rose
To break it open
Last night
Was whispered to my heart.

I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalog: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.
Eleanor Roosevelt

'Twas a yellow rose,
By that south window of the little house,
My cousin Romney gathered with his hand
On all my birthdays, for me.
Save the last;
And then I shook the tree
too rough, too rough,
For roses to stay after.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

It is at the edge of the petal that love waits.
William Carlos Williams

Rose of all Roses, Rose of all the World!
You, too, have come where the dim tides are hurled
Upon the wharves of sorrow, and heard ring
The bell that calls us on; the sweet far thing.
William Butler Yeats

A rose's rarest essence lives in the thorn.

You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.

Take time to smell the roses.

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple’s a rose
Robert Frost

But he that dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.
Emily Bronte

Stop learning.
Start knowing.
The rose opens
And opens
And when it falls
Falls outward.

As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.
Ben Hogan

And lovely is the Rose.

A yellow rose was to him.
And it was nothing more.

Loveliest of lovely things are they
On earth that soonest pass away.
The rose that lives its little hour
Is prized beyond the sculptured flower.
William Cullen Bryant

A profusion of pink roses bending ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring.
William Cullen Bryant

You are the diamond in me
the Jewel of my real wealth!
From your soft earth
grow thousands
of rose gardens
whose perfumes
drown me
in my heart.

Of youth upon him.

For whose sweet smell the air shall be perfumed.
