Comes up smelling like roses
- Thom Bodebt
They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes
Within a dream.
- Ernest Dowson
We can complain because rose bushes have thorns,
or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.
- Abraham Lincoln
If thou canst but thither,
There grows the flower of Peace,
The rose that cannot wither,
Thy fortress and thy ease.
- Henry Vaughn
