The Beauty of Roses

 Roses

While life may not be a bed of roses, roses certainly are a reflection of life.  A single rose  signifies  so many different things.  It represents love, innocence, gratitude, happiness,  friendship and even death. They say the gift of a rose is also one of the simplest ways to say, “I love you.”  I thought that I would share some of my favorite Rose quotes.

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns. I am thankful that thorns have roses.- Alphonse Kerr

God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December. – James Matthew Barrie

Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful and calm, but willing to draw blood in its defense. – Mark Overby.

Don’t strew me with roses after I’m dead.
When Death claims the light of my brow
No flowers of life will cheer me: instead
You may give me my roses now! – Thomas F. Healey

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

Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again.- Unknown

The Rainbow comes and goes, And lovely is the Rose. – William Wordsworth
