But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
|Roses and thorns are parts of the same plant. Somehow though, some people are concerned mainly about the roses. The rose is not on the plant for more than a week, but the thorns are there forever.|
Roses are teaching that the beauty of life will bloom, once you have taught yourself the lessons given by living with the thorns.”
― Grigoris Deoudis
|THE TIME CAME WHEN THE RISK IT TOOK TO REMAIN TIGHT IN THE BUD BECAME MORE PAINFUL THAN THE RISK IT TOOK TO BLOOM'|
― Anais Nin
