Famous quotes containing the words rose and/or billy:

    In real life, unlike in Shakespeare, the sweetness of the rose depends upon the name it bears. Things are not only what they are. They are, in very important respects, what they seem to be.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda,
    Who’ll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?
    And he sang as he watched and waited while his billy boiled:
    ‘Who’ll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?’
    Andrew Barton Peterson (1864–1941)
