A Rose is a Rose

You are beautiful, but you are empty. One could not die for you. To be sure, an ordinary passerby would think that my rose looked just like you--the rose that belongs to me. But in herself alone she is more important than all the hundreds of you other roses: because it is she that I have watered.
~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Country Girl~ Glad it spoke to you today. :)

Mrs. Q~ I just search for most of my quotes online and see what I come up with. I enter 'quotes, roses' or something like that. It is amazing what you can find on the internet!
