Thine name, I doth not know


'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.

Romeo and Juliet - William Shakespeare

  1. Beautiful pics. Roses have to be the best flower to photograph

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I've tried photographing flowers but it just never turns out how I want it to. Love the colour. But I disagree with Shakespeare. Names are important. When naming a new baby I always consider things like...
    "Would he be taken seriously in a boardroom if his name was Chase Danger?"

    1. Too true. There was a bloke who used to live around the corner, for some reason his parents thought Shaun Lamb would be a good name!

  6. Shakespeare really was a genius wasn't he?
    And yet not even the beauty of his carefully crafted words can hold a candle to creation. Those roses are stunning
