A bit 'o searching on Google this AM:


The youth is praised not only for his beauty, but for inward truth as well.
Those whose beauty is composed only of externalities are compared to wild
and scentless roses, whereas those who have inward worth, like the youth,
are compared to true roses, which are grown for their scent as much as for
their looks.

The comparison of the young man with a rose is a constant motif throughout
the Sonnets, commencing with 1, then here, and in 67, 95, 98, 99, and 109.
In 67 it is also combined with truth.

Didn't have to walk to any library, and had I done so, I'd have likely just
used Google there (Multnomah County Library, Belmont Branch isn't Firestone
@ Princeton).
