Quote of the Day
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.
Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.
I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.
Won't you come into the garden? I would like my roses to see you.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Henry David Thoreau

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.
Everything's coming up roses - for me.
All of our early hits, 'Danke Schoen' and 'Red Roses,' were produced by Bobby Darin.
My closest friend, who died not long ago, is buried near Marx's grave in Highgate cemetery, so I see the gaggle of admirers laying roses at the foot of his tombstone regularly.

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 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.
Treaties are like roses and young girls. They last while they last.
Charles de Gaulle
Have you seen the roses? There's a whole lot of colours.
As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.
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.
We may pass violets looking for roses. We may pass contentment looking for victory.
I was a big Guns N' Roses fan when I was seven. My friend who lived across the street had long dark curly hair and I had long blonde hair, so I'd dress up as Axl and she'd be Slash, and we'd rock out in front of the mirror singing 'Patience.'
At every step the child should be allowed to meet the real experience of life; the thorns should never be plucked from his roses.
My life is part humor, part roses, part thorns.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
