"What kind of broth is this?" she asked. "Life," the old woman said. "Boil your first kiss until it is violet like a sky. After it cools, stir it until it turns yellow like the wings of a butterfly. Then laugh into the potion to make more good than bad. That is the broth of life."

~ #120 from The Persistence of Yellow by Monique Duval
