What's in a name?

That which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet.
William Shakespeare

Once I had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall. Eleanor Roosevelt

It is at the edge of the petal that love waits. William Carlos Williams

A thorn defends the rose, harming only those who would steal the blossom.
Chinese proverb

Send two dozen roses to Room 424 and put "Emily, I love you" on the back of the bill. Groucho Marx

You are responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose. Antoine de Saint-Exupery

And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies. Christopher Marlowe

God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December.
J. M. Barrie, British Playwright
