Along with friendship, yellow roses mean joy, delight, and the promise of a new beginning… Lovely ideas for lingerie in shades of yellow as well, right?
But just as no two roses are alike, neither are the sentiments of roses. And so it goes for yellow lingerie — and the women who wear it. Here are but a few examples… Along with some of my favorite quotes about roses.
You’re beautiful, but you’re empty…One couldn’t die for you. Of course, an ordinary passerby would think my rose looked just like you. But my rose, all on her own, is more important than all of you together, since she’s the one I’ve watered. Since she’s the one I put under glass, since she’s the one I sheltered behind the screen. Since she’s the one for whom I killed the caterpillars (except the two or three butterflies). Since she’s the one I listened to when she complained, or when she boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing at all. Since she’s my rose.
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
A rose is a mixture of flower and thorns, which means it’s half “Let’s fuck,” and half “fuck you.”
Feeling at peace, however fragilely, made it easy to slip into the visionary end of the dark-sight. The rose shadows said that they loved the sun, but that they also loved the dark, where their roots grew through the lightless mystery of the earth. The roses said: You do not have to choose.
― Robin McKinley, Sunshine
