My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Pleasure often comes with some difficulties.
Very true. From experience I know that the pleasure of the rose far outweighs the nuisance of the thorns.
Of course, Marty. Thorns, like death, are a great leveler of beauty.
No one plants rosebushes for the thorns but along with the beauty of the rose comes the thorns. To accept the pleasure of the beauty one must also contend with the occasional pain; it’s part of the circle of life.
the thorns protect the plant from predators but not us.
This liner, gives me a thought which states "after every rise there is a fall"
