"Once I had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: "No good in a bed, but fine up against a wall."
~ Eleanor Roosevelt

"And I do not want to be a rose,
I do not wish to be pale pink,
but flower scarlet, flower gold,
and have no thorns to distance me.
But be bright,
bright as yellow,
warm as yellow."
------ from "bright as yellow" by the innocence mission
