Antoine De Saint-Exupéry

It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.

One can talk good and shower down roses, but it's the receiver that has to walk
One can talk good and shower down roses, but it's the receiver that has to walk through the thorns, and all its false expectations.

Antoine De Saint-Exupéry

She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her... I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her...

H.L. Mencken

An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it makes a better soup.

Scott Hastie

Every new day
Our children's joy is as fresh as roses,
Even the birds chatter at dawn.

Patrick Rothfuss

Roses! I swear you men have all your romance from the same worn book. Flowers are a good thing, a sweet thing to give a lady. But it is always roses, always red, and always perfect hothouse blooms when they can come by them.


If I say your voice is an amber waterfall in which I yearn to burn each day, if you eat my mouth like a mystical rose with powers of healing and damnation, If I confess that your body is the only civilization I long to experience… would it mean that we are close to knowing something about love?

Ana Claudia Antunes

Women have no
only continual

Though rivers flow
women are not

Women are not
they are not oceans
or stars.

a few words spoken beneath the moon, love
may be, but I write your name
in the celestial dust that lingers
in the air, above
the veilchenblau roses, callow
and pale

in your beauty, could I speak
knowing of this space close within
as the breath held inside a garden rose, there -
there is no time.

Anne Brontë

But he who dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.

Tupac Shakur

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature's laws wrong, it learned to walk without having feet. Funny, it seems to by keeping it's dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared.

Juana Inés De La Cruz

Rosa que al prado, encarnada,

pero no, que siendo hermosa
tambien serás desdichada.

Roses are teaching that the beauty of life will bloom, once you have taught yourself the lessons given by living with the thorns.

Emily Brontë

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?

Ottilie Weber

The death of an old habit in order for a
new journey to start. The dark clouds
