Famous quotes containing the word roses:
you take the petals
of the roses in your hand,
but leave the stark core
of the rose
to perish on the branch.”
—Hilda Doolittle (18861961)
“No one can understand Paris and its history who does not understand that its fierceness is the balance and justification of its frivolity. It is called a city of pleasure; but it may also very specially be called a city of pain. The crown of roses is also a crown of thorns. Its people are too prone to hurt others, but quite ready also to hurt themselves. They are martyrs for religion, they are martyrs for irreligion; they are even martyrs for immorality.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
“But all its chief delight was still
On Roses thus its self to fill:
And its pure virgin Limbs to fold
In whitest sheets of Lillies cold.
Had it livd long it would have been
Lillies without, Roses within.”
—Andrew Marvell (16211678)
