God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December.
- J. M. Barrie
Comes up smelling like roses
- Thom Bodebt
flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words.
They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character,
though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.
- Lydia M. Child
And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies.
- Christopher Marlowe
