Rose Quotes 1 - 2 - 3
I will soothe you and heal you.
I will bring you roses. I too have been covered with thorns.

Love is like the wild rose-briar;
Friendship like the holly-tree.
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms,
But which will bloom most constantly?
Emily Bronte

Rose! Thou art the sweetest flower that ever drank the amber shower:
Even the Gods, who walk the sky, are amourous of thy scented sigh.
Thomas Moore

It's a rare man that understands the value of a perfect rose.
Mary Alice Young

Oh, this is the joy of the rose;
That it blows,
And goes.
Willa Cather

With thee a prison would be a rose-garden.
With thee hell would be a mansion of delight,
Without thee lilies and roses would be as flames of fire!

Sweet rose! Thy crimson leaves
Are happy little thieves.
Sir Edwin Arnold

He who wants a rose must respect the thorn.
Persian Proverb

Truths and roses have thorns about them.
Henry David Thoreau

A relationship is like a rose,
How long it lasts, no one knows.
Love can erase an awful past,
love can be yours, you'll see at last.
To feel that love, it makes you sigh,
To have it leave, you'd rather die.
You hope you've found that special rose,
'cause you love and care for the one you chose.
Rob Cella

If love were what the rose is,
And I were like the leaf,
Our love would grow together,
In sad or sighing weather.
Charles Algernon Swinburne

I was a Flower of the mountain yes when I put the rose in my hair like the Andalusian girls used or shall I wear a red yes and how he kissed me under the Moorish wall and I thought well as well him as another and then I asked him with my eyes to ask again yes and then he asked me would I yes to say yes my mountain flower and first I put my arms around him yes and drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts all perfume yes and his heart was going like mad and yes I said yes I will Yes.
James Joyce
Molly Bloom's soliloquy, closing lines of Ulysses.

It was not in the winter
Our loving lot was cast!
It was the time of roses,
We plucked them as we passed!
Thomas Hood

At middle age the soul should be opening up like a rose, not closing up like a cabbage.
John Andrew Holmes

Slow buds the pink dawn like a rose
From out night's gray and cloudy sheath;
Softly and still it grows and grows,
Petal by petal, leaf by leaf.
Susan Coolidge

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

The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.
Saint Therese of Lisieux

Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone and more fragile than a rose.
Turkish Proverb

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
John Boyle O'Reilly

You may break, you may shatter the vase, if you will,
But the scent of roses will hang round it still.
Thomas Moore

How cunningly nature hides every
wrinkle of her inconceivable antiquity
under roses and violets and morning dew!
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The sweetest flower that blows,
I give you as we part.
For you it is a Rose,
For me it is my heart.
Frederick Peterson

Give her two red roses, each with a note.
The first note says For the woman I love
and the second, For my best friend.
Author Unknown

And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies.
Christopher Marlowe

Their lips were four red roses on a stalk.
William Shakespeare

But earthlier happy is the rose distill'd
Than that which withering on the virgin thorn
Grows, lives, and dies in single blessedness.
William Shakespeare
A Midsummer Night's Dream, 1. 1.

At Christmas I no more desire a rose
Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth;
But like of each thing that in season grows.
William Shakespeare

From fairest creatures we desire increase,
That thereby beauty's rose might never die.
William Shakespeare

O! how much more doth beauty beauteous seem
By that sweet ornament which truth doth give.
The rose looks fair, but fairer we it deem
For that sweet odour, which doth in it live.
William Shakespeare
Sonnet 54.

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.

May you never grow old in our hearts.

Enfold me in my hour of hours.

For the rose, though its petals be torn asunder,
Still smiles on, and it is never cast down.
