Quote of the Day
Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.
Roses are red, violets are blue, I'm schizophrenic, and so am I.
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.
I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.
It will never rain roses: when we want to have more roses we must plant more trees.
I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
Truths and roses have thorns about them.
Henry David Thoreau
Young people can get very discouraged and get hooked on drugs or on alcohol because of problems they perceive as insurmountable. It is important that they realize a mistake need not ruin their future, but they must also know that not everything in life is a bed of roses.
There's so much to appreciate about my life every single day, and I make a big point of taking time to smell the roses and noticing how lucky I am. I never want to take that for granted.
The sharp thorn often produces delicate roses.
I started rocking and rolling when Guns N' Roses came out. It wasn't until Garth Brooks came around that I really got back to country. He made it fun again. To me, in country music, the rigor mortis was setting in and it just wasn't fun anymore. Garth brought everyone back over to country and made it cool again.
With me it is exceptionally true that the Presidency is no bed of roses.
James K. Polk
As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.
Nobody's life is a bed of roses. We all have crosses to bear, and we all just do our best. I would never claim to have the worst situation. There are many widows, and many people dying of AIDS, many people killed in Lebanon, people starving all over the planet. So we have to count our lucky stars.
My life is part humor, part roses, part thorns.
There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted.
At every step the child should be allowed to meet the real experience of life; the thorns should never be plucked from his roses.
Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
I happen to be a pessimist, and maybe that's a good thing because I don't stop to smell the roses - which is not a good personal thing. I don't stop and enjoy those moments... Always on to the next and never in the moment.
A revolution is not a bed of roses.
Everything's coming up roses - for me.
Have you seen the roses? There's a whole lot of colours.
Treaties are like roses and young girls. They last while they last.
Charles de Gaulle
Basketball talent is basketball talent, no matter if it comes from the suburbs or the city. Take the time to know and understand me before you judge me. Only God can do that. Roses do grow from concrete!
A personal highlight was probably when we got a No. 1 in the U.K. and when the album went to No. 1 in America. The top four that week was us, Adele, Guns N' Roses and Bruce Springsteen. It was ridiculous seeing those names there. Being the first band from the U.K. and Ireland to go to America and debut at No. 1 is just unbelievable.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
