What popular expression is represented by this rebus?

rose = rose = rose!


A rose is a rose is a rose!

The meaning most often attributed to this is notion that when all is said and done, a thing is what it is. The line is from Gertrude Stein's poem Sacred Emily, written in 1913 and published in 1922, in 'Geography and Plays'. The verbatim line is actually, 'Rose is a rose is a rose is a rose'.
