“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.”
“I know a little garden close / Set thick with lily and red rose, / Where I would wander if I might / From dewy dawn to dewy night. / And have one with me wandering.”
“Had it lived long, it would have been / Lilies without, roses within.”
“The lily and the rose in her fair face striving for precedence.”
Nathaniel Parker Willis
“I have a garden of my own,/ But so with roses overgrown,/ And lilies, that you would it guess/ To be a little wilderness.”
“If you have two loaves of bread, sell one and buy a lily”
“For sweetest things turn sourest by their deeds;Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds.”
