The rose is not the only beautiful flower, there are hundreds of others; most flowers are beautiful.
There are degrees and kinds of beauty, that is all.
The rose is among the first of flowers because of the richness of its colour, the intensity of sweetness of its scent and the grace and magnificence of its form.
