Anne Brontë

“But he who dares not grasp the thorn
Should never crave the rose.”

I've always loved this quote. I take it to mean that some things in life are a bit difficult and could harm you,
but in order to get to something beautiful (like the rose) one has to take some risks.

There is always a price to pay.

ha! that's why I'll never be a good poet... words never flow so beautifully from me.<br />

I take it as: anything worth having will require a sacrifice.

Or at least trying it even though it might seem scary or difficult.

If the rose doesn't have thorn, it would be fake ones, and so does life, if we not take a chance we might as well not living, only existed. Have a nice day :)
