Artist's Description

“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” is a reference to a quotation from William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet, meant to say that the names of things do not matter, only what things are.

Quote from “Romeo and Juliet”:
‘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.
