Roses are beautiful and have a wonderful smell. Of course the stem is lined with thorns and those thorns can hurt. What part of the rose are you. The beautifully colored flower that gives off a wonderful smell or the stem lined with all the thorns. One way to tell is by how many friends you have? Are people attracted to you. Do you make people smile? Do people love hanging around with you? Or do they stay away from you?
It is better to be a rose than a rose stem.
