One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon--instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

For me, elegance is not to pass unnoticed but to get to the very soul of what one is.
The endearing elegance of female friendship.
A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives you roses.
Be both the gardener and the rose.
It is said that God gave us memory so we could have roses in winter. But it is also true that without memory we could not have self in any season. The more memories you have, the more you have. That is why, as Swift said, No wise man ever wished to be younger.
Slow buds the pink dawn like a rose From out night's gray and cloudy sheath; Softly and still it grows and grows, Petal by petal, leaf by leaf.
Footfalls echo in the memory down the passage which we did not take towards the door we never opened into the rose-garden.
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it
One rose says more than the dozen
It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees.
In real life, unlike in Shakespeare, the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.
Gather ye rose-buds while ye may, old Time is still a-flying: And this same flower that smiles today, tomorrow will be dying.
As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.
The rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart.
A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world.
Avoid being impatient. Remember time brings roses.
Can anything be so elegant as to have few wants, and to serve them one's self?
