"A rose is a rose is a rose"

/The line is from Gertrude Stein's poem Sacred Emily, written in 1913 and published in 1922, in Geography and Plays. The verbatim line is actually, 'Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose'/


  1. I don't think I'd wish to question the logic of that remark

  2. or we could say a rose is a rose, by any other name. for some reason that popped in my head. this is one truly beautiful rose

    1. Sandra, yes, I have heard that quote as well. (Checking - from Romeo & Juliet: "What's in a name? That which we call a rose / By any other name would smell as sweet") There is a similar quote from a Swedish poet as well, about roses still being roses, even if put in a cracked vase... This particular rose was in the garden at a café we visited in Skåne

  3. I never understood that line. The rose is a Knockout Rose I am pretty sure. And it IS a rose! Ha!
