Ιn 1807 the Irish musician and song writer Thomas Moore wrote: “You may break, you may shatter the vase, if you will; but the scent of the roses will hang round it still”.

The English poet Ernest Dawson wrote in 1896: “They are not long the days of wine and roses”.

The Madonna Lily was gradually overtaken as a symbol of Christianity by the rose. (Jennifer Potter, Seven flowers and how they shaped our life.)
