A Rose is Something


 
 

“Les rosiers ont des roses—

C’est toujours la meme que je vois.

Une rose, c’est quelque chose.

La vie pour les femmes est si difficile.”

“Rose bushes have roses—

It is always the same one that I see.

A rose is something.

Life for women is so difficult.”

 

Marie Laurencin
