Title: Ω πολίται, μη έχετε άλλα μεν ρήματα άλλα δε νοήματα. Πού μοι τα ρόδα, πού μοι τα ία.

I found these two phrases. I can understand some ancient greek, but this one is really difficult for me cause I'm not Greek. Can someone help me with that?

(Katy, we need to emend δεν to μεν.)
Roughly: "O citizens, don't speak one way and think another way" and "Where are my roses, where are my violets?"
Can you tell us where you found these phrases?
