Pop-Culture Rose Quotes

I am trying to put together quotes about roses from current

pop-culture (1960 to present)

The quotes can come from:

– Famous people

– Song lyrics

– Literature prose or verse

– Advertisements, TV shows or movies

– International, doesn't have to be from the US but must be in English

They have to be pretty short, a sentence or two.

It's always useful to know what your expectations are. Approximately

how many quotes would constitute a satisfactory answer?

Clarification of Question byperryp-ga

I really need to use about 6 quotes but to get the 6 I probably will

need 30 to 50 to select from and I have already done a pretty through

Google search on "rose quotes". Light hearted honest day-to-day quotes


The kind of quote I want is:

"You should know by now; every woman wants roses" – from someone like

Madonna, Lauren Hill, Marilyn Monroe or Donna Ross

and a pity rose quotes like:

"Roses are cheaper that lawyers and smell better" from someone like

Axle Rose, Donald Trump or Notorious BIG

and romantic one:

"My heart and a rose need the same care" Oprah, Grace Kelly or Princess Dianna.

Does that help?

Since you've already researched this on your own, you may want to give

us a list of the quotes you've found already, or the sites that you've

visited. Otherwise it is likely that a Researcher will be duplicating

many of your searches, and you may end up with a lot of material that

you already know about.

    The roses, the lovely notes, the dining and dancing are all welcome

    car. Get a fucking job! Fuck the Sikhs and the Pakistanis bombing down

    the avenues in decrepit cabs, curry steaming out their pores, stinking

    up my day. Terrorists in fucking training. SLOW THE FUCK DOWN! Fuck

    the Chelsea boys with their waxed chests and pumped up biceps. Going

    down on each other in my parks and on my piers, jingling their dicks

    on my Channel 35. Fuck the Korean grocers with their pyramids of

    overpriced fruit and their tulips and roses wrapped in plastic.

    the… the lady who opened the box… uh… freaked out and started

    screaming? And I ran out of there just as you poked your head into the

    hall. And… and the next thing I know, this one's bashing me for

    having an affair with her neighbor, and this one's bashing me for

    protect myself was… was a dozen roses. And.. and.. and you never

    even read the note.
