A Rose By Any Other Name

would smell as sweet...

For Carolyn

JULIET:

'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.

From Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, 1594

  1. This is really pretty. Really really pretty. When you talked about crocheting a rose I thought it was the usual flower you make as a pin to decorate a hat, but I'm speechless :-D
