Roses are more than 2500 years old friends of
human beings. They have very strong appeal to
human aesthetics. This is why, they are with
human beings for such a long period of
time. A rose is a woody perennial of
the genus Rosa, within the family Rosacea. There
are more than 100 species of roses known
today. Most of rose species are native of Asia,
with a smaller number of rose species native of
Europe, North America, and Northwest Africa.
Species like cultivars and hybrids are all
widely grown for their beautiful appearance and
appreciated for their pleasant fragrance.
Roses and thorns are parts of the same plant.
Somehow though, some people are concerned mainly
about the roses. The rose is not on the plant for
more than a week, but the thorns are there
forever.Roses are teaching that the beauty of
life will bloom, once you have taught yourself
the lessons given by living with the
thorns. ? Grigoris Deoudis But he who dares
not grasp the thorn Should never crave the
rose. ? Anne Brontë Love is like the wild
rose-briar Friendship like the holly-tree. The
holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms, But
which will bloom most constantly? ? Emily Bronte

pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the
rose. - Khalil Gibran What's in a name? That
which we call a rose by any other name would
smell as sweet. - William Shakespeare Transliter
