Every flower about a house certifies to the refinement of somebody.
Every vine climbing and blossoming tells of love and joy".
- Robert G. Ingersoll
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose garden.
- T.S. Eliot
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
But not as sweet as you
- Thom Bodebt
The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love,
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
- John Boyle O’Reilly
