Welcome to my page of quotations about yellow — the color of sunshine, lemons, bees, springtime flowers, so many beautiful things!  —ღ Terri


Yellow is the eldest daughter of light. ~Charles Blanc, "Personal Adornment: Colours and Their Expression," Art in Ornament and Dress, 1875, translated from French


The nimbus of the saints, haloes and auras. These are the yellows of hope. ~Derek Jarman (1942–1994), "The Perils of Yellow," Chroma: A Book of Colour — June '93, 1994


There is a sun, a light that for want of a better word I can only call yellow, pale sulphur yellow, pale golden citron. How lovely yellow is! ~Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890)


In literature, indeed, yellow has long been the color of romance. ~“The Yellow Boom,” in Current Literature, February 1895


Although yellow occupies one-twentieth of the spectrum, it is the brightest colour. ~Derek Jarman (1942–1994), "The Perils of Yellow," Chroma: A Book of Colour — June '93, 1994


The popular vogue which green has enjoyed is passing. Jaded with over-refinements and super-subtleties, we seem to be harking back to the primary colors of life. The triumph of yellow is imminent. After white, yellow reflects more light than any other color. A few yellow chrysanthemums will make a small room look twice its size, and when the sun comes out upon a yellow wall-paper the whole room seems suddenly to expand, to open like a flower. When it falls upon the pot of yellow chrysanthemums and sets them ablaze, it seems as though one had an angel in the room. ~“The Yellow Boom,” in Current Literature, February 1895


Yellow is an extrovert's color. ~Joen Wolfrom, Adventures in Design, 2011


The effect of yellow upon the mind is of a bright, gay, gladdening nature, owing to its likeness to light. ~W. J. & G. A. Audsley, Taste versus Fashionable Colours: A Manual for Ladies on Colour in Dress, 1863


When yellow wishes to ingratiate it becomes gold. ~Derek Jarman (1942–1994), "The Perils of Yellow," Chroma: A Book of Colour — June '93, 1994


Green has the contract for the greater bulk of the vegetable life of the globe but his is a monotonous business: grass, grass, grass; trees, trees, trees, ad infinitum; whereas yellow leads a roving, versatile life, and is seldom called upon for such repetitive labor. The flowers we love best are yellow, and yellow, too, has its turn with the leaves — in autumn what an artist he shows himself when he "lays his fiery finger" upon them, lighting up the forlorn woodland with splashes of audacious gold! ~“The Yellow Boom,” in Current Literature, February 1895
