Colour quotes by Willa Cather
#1. As I looked about me I felt that the grass was the country, as the water is the sea. The red of the grass made all the great prairie the colour of winestains, or of certain seaweeds when they are first washed up. And there was so much motion in it; the whole country seemed, somehow, to be running. #Quote by Willa Cather
Colour quotes by John Ruskin
#2. Wherever men are noble, they love bright colour; and wherever they can live healthily, bright colour is given them - in sky, sea, flowers, and living creatures. #Quote by John Ruskin
Colour quotes by Walter J. Phillips
#3. The importance of colour is as nothing compared with that of form, chiaroscuro and arrangement. They are the true and enduring bases of pictorial art. #Quote by Walter J. Phillips
Colour quotes by Lyssa Kay Adams
#4. Gavin stumbled to the toilet just as something the colour of bad decisions exploded from his mouth. #Quote by Lyssa Kay Adams
Colour quotes by LL Cool J
#5. As a black man, my hope is that I can touch more and more people all over the world of different races and different colours. #Quote by LL Cool J
Colour quotes by Edith Wharton
#6. The sudden heat of his tone made her colour mount again, not with a rush, but gradually, delicately, like the reflection of a thought stealing slowly across her heart. #Quote by Edith Wharton
Colour quotes by Graeme Simsion
#7. I was having trouble making sense of all that Rosie was saying, doubtless due to the effects of the alcohol and her perfume. However, she had given me an opportunity to keep the conversation on safe ground. The inheritance of common genetically influenced traits such as eye colour is more complex than is generally understood, and I was confident that I could speak on the topic for long enough to occupy the remainder of our journey. But I realised that this was a defensive action and impolite to Rosie who had risked considerable embarrassment and damage to her relationship with Stefan for my benefit. #Quote by Graeme Simsion
Colour quotes by Jonathan Dunne
#8. I've shrunk but I haven't lost my colour #Quote by Jonathan Dunne
Colour quotes by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
#9. India is a place where colour is doubly bright. Pinks that scald your eyes, blues you could drown in. #Quote by Kiran Millwood Hargrave
Colour quotes by George Berkeley
#10. I know what I mean by the term I and myself; and I know this immediately, or intuitively, though I do not perceive it as I perceive a triangle, a colour, or a sound. #Quote by George Berkeley
Colour quotes by Bram Stoker
#11. Far, far away, there is a beautiful Country which no human eye has ever seen in waking hours. Under the Sunset it lies, where the distant horizon bounds the day, and where the clouds, splendid with light and colour, give a promise of the glory and beauty which encompass it. Sometimes it is given to us to see it in dreams. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Colour quotes by Gerhard Richter
#12. To me, grey is the welcome and only possible equivalent for indifference, noncommitment, absence of opinion, absence of shape. But grey, like formlessness and the rest, can be real only as an idea, and so all I can do is create a colour nuance that means grey but is not it. The painting is then a mixture of grey as a fiction and grey as a visible, designated area of colour. #Quote by Gerhard Richter
Colour quotes by Irene Khan
#13. Racism is an attack on the very notion of the universality of human rights. It systematically denies certain people the enjoyment of their full human rights because of their colour, race, ethnicity, descent or national origin. #Quote by Irene Khan
Colour quotes by Catriona Malan
#14. The Book Lover:-

See how I have come up in the World, because of my books.
I pull the covers agape, pages release their cargo and words fly like birds each with its own song.
Listen, and vowels will breathe like flutes in your head,
Consonants tick-tack like woodpeckers, and sibilants, sly as asps, bite the plosives that pop from our pressed lips.
A picture worth a thousand words?
You paint a score of trees, dark needled, stippled and stroked across your canvas:
My book say 'forrest' (Feel that Pine green touch)

You wash your paper with azures and turquoise, set ship after ship, sails wind-pregnant,
As far as the daubed horizon: my books say 'armada'. (Smell that sea-green scent)

Art's shape is their noun, its colour their objective,
Its tone their adverb; my books match the grammar of landscapes.

This book may say 'Socrates' secrets,
Freud's autopsy of actions or Heaney's verses;
Every idea dreamed by man caught, black stamped for all time, within its cardboard confines.
Here the past speaks to us, as the future will, in the language of our senses.

Step up book by book-
In time, you will reach the stars. #Quote by Catriona Malan
Colour quotes by Jean Rhys
#15. I hated the mountains and the hills, the rivers and the rain. I hated the sunsets of whatever colour, I hated its beauty and its magic and the secret I would never know. I hated its indifference and the cruelty which was part of its loveliness. Above all I hated her. For she belonged to the magic and the loveliness. She had left me thirsty and all my life would be thirst and longing for what I had lost before I found it. #Quote by Jean Rhys
Colour quotes by Andrew Pyper
#16. Grief has a colour. It has other characteristics, I know now, collectively forming a personality of sorts. An antagonizing figure that arrives in your life and refuses to leave or sit anywhere but next to you or stop whispering the name of the departed in your ear. #Quote by Andrew Pyper
Colour quotes by Doris Lessing
#17. I am sure everyone has had the experience of reading a book and finding it vibrating with aliveness, with colour and immediacy. And then, perhaps some weeks later, reading it again and finding it flat and empty. Well, the book hasn't changed: you have. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Colour quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#18. Love is the colour of spring sunshine muted through old windows. Love has a taste, a texture - dark chocolate with pistachios; a sound - wind chimes echoing from a distant hill; a rhythm - the tango, obviously. #Quote by Chloe Thurlow
Colour quotes by Jennifer Megan Varnadore
#19. But that was the most dangerous part, as well as the most alluring. She wanted to feel him take her to that edge. The edge where life met death, where colour met the absence of it, where light met the darkness. She wanted him to bring her to this brink, and she wanted him to let her fall. Why? She longed for self-destruction. She longed to let him show her his darkest, so that she could save him. She had the delusion, no...she was disillusioned. She knew the truth. She also knew that loving him and wanting to save him, to be some sick twisted heaven sent angel was her truest wish. She knew that she could do no saving. She couldn't even save herself, how could she save someone else?

She wanted to encapture his heart. She wanted to destroy it, and she wanted to burn him down. Why? So she could watch him as he writhed in the ashes, and became something new. She wanted to watch him rebirth himself in those flames and ashes, like a pheonix would. Why would she want this of him? Why...because she simply could. She wanted to destroy their love, him and her along with it. She wanted to savor it forever. Some beast inside her, wanted nothing more than their destruction, so that it could smile in that darkness. That darkness within her, wanted him like nothing else could matter. She would die for his darkness, so she could bring him to the light. However, she was far from the light herself. She wanted to trade herself in for someone better than she was. She wanted to give hi #Quote by Jennifer Megan Varnadore
Colour quotes by Ricky Gervais
#20. I want to get all the nations of the world together, it doesn't matter what colour or creed, and I want to sit them down and say: "Guys, The Office is still available on DVD." #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Colour quotes by Bassui Takusho
#21. The essence of your mind is not born, so it will never die. It is not an existence, which is perishable. It is not an emptiness, which is a mere void. It has neither colour nor form. It enjoys no pleasures and suffers no pains.
I know you are very ill. Like a good Zen student, you are facing that sickness squarely. You may not know exactly who is suffering, but question yourself: What is the essence of this mind? Think only of this. You will need no more. Covet nothing. Your end which is endless is as a snowflake dissolving in pure air. #Quote by Bassui Takusho
Colour quotes by Ezra Pound
#22. From the colour the nature And by the nature the sign! Beatific spirits welding together As in one ash-tree in Ygdrasail. #Quote by Ezra Pound
Colour quotes by Riccardo Tisci
#23. Black is always elegant. It is the most complete colour in the whole world, made of all the colours in the palette. #Quote by Riccardo Tisci
Colour quotes by Henry James
#24. I had the view of a castle of romance inhabited by a rosy spirit, such a place as would somehow, for diversion of the young idea, take all colour out of story-books and fairy-tales. Was n't it just a story-book over which I had fallen a-doze and a-dream? #Quote by Henry James
Colour quotes by Joanna Lumley
#25. I cut my hair myself and colour it. I know everybody in the hairdressing business despairs of me, but it's so much easier to do it yourself. #Quote by Joanna Lumley
Colour quotes by Jupiter Hammon
#26. When I was at Hartford in Connecticut, where I lived during the war, I published several pieces which were well received, not only by those of my own colour, but by a number of the white people, who thought they might do good among their servants. #Quote by Jupiter Hammon
Colour quotes by Salena Godden
#27. Human colour is the colour I'm truly interested in, the colour of your humanity. May the size of your heart and the depth of your soul be your currency. Welcome aboard my Good Ship. Let us sail to the colourful island of mixed identity.
"SHADE" - Salena Godden #Quote by Salena Godden
Colour quotes by Claude Debussy
#28. Collect impressions. Don't be in a hurry to write them down. Because that's something music can do better than painting: it can centralise variations of colour and light within a single picture a truth generally ignored, obvious as it is. #Quote by Claude Debussy
Colour quotes by Tove Jansson
#29. Thingumy and Bob sighed contentedly and settled down to contemplate the precious stone. They stared in silent rapture at it.
The ruby changed colour all the time. At first it was quite pale, and then suddenly a pink glow would flow over it like sunrise on a snow capped mountain
and then again crimson flames shot out of its heart and it seemed like a great black tulip with stamens on fire. #Quote by Tove Jansson
Colour quotes by Varaidzo
#30. There was one thing I'd never considered about mixing red and yellow: a drop of yellow into red paint won't do much to change the colour; but one drop of red into yellow and the whole pot is tainted for ever. #Quote by Varaidzo
Colour quotes by Sally Rooney
#31. A feeling of dissociation from his senses, an inability to think straight or interpret what he sees and hears. Things begin to look and sound different, slower, artificial, unreal. The first time it happened he thought he was losing his mind, that the whole cognitive framework by which he made sense of the world had disintegrated for good, and everything from then on would just be undifferentiated sound and colour. #Quote by Sally Rooney
Colour quotes by Andrea Levy
#32. Describe snow to someone who's lived in the desert. Depict the colour blue for a blind man. Almost impossible to fashion the word. #Quote by Andrea Levy
Colour quotes by Matt Watkinson
#33. When Sony was introducing the boom box, the company gathered a group of potential customers and held a focus group on what colour the new product should be: black or yellow. After some discussion among the group of likely buyers, everyone agreed that consumers would better respond to yellow. After the session, the facilitator thanked the group, and then mentioned that, as a bonus, they were welcome to take a free boom box on the way out. There were two piles of boom boxes: yellow and black. Every person took a black boom box.'5 Clearly what people say isn't always a true reflection of what they think, so we need a way of getting into these shadowy issues and seeing how they affect the customer's goals. #Quote by Matt Watkinson
Colour quotes by Richard Aldington
#34. I have sat here happy in the gardens, Watching the still pool and the reeds And the dark clouds ... But though I greatly delight In these and the water lilies, That which sets me nighest to weeping Is the rose and white colour of the smooth flag-stones, And the pale yellow grasses Among them. #Quote by Richard Aldington
Colour quotes by Marc Chagall
#35. If all life moves inevitably towards its end, then we must, during our own, colour it with our colours of love and hope. #Quote by Marc Chagall
Colour quotes by C.S. Pacat
#36. You're still wearing it."
He couldn't help but say it. Laurent's wrist was heavy with gold, like the colour of his hair in the firelight.
"So are you."
"Tell me why."
"You know why," said Laurent. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Colour quotes by Shaun Hick
#37. I hasten to sleep so that I might dream
and colour my mind with a myriad of things. #Quote by Shaun Hick
Colour quotes by Arundhati Roy
#38. At the time, there would only be incoherence. As though meaning had slunk out of things and left them fragmented. Disconnected. The glint of Ammu's needle. The colour of a ribbon. The weave of the cross-stitch counterpane. A door slowly breaking. Isolated things that didn't mean anything. As though the intelligence that decodes life's hidden patterns - that connects reflections to images, glints to light, weaves to fabrics, needles to thread, walls to rooms, love to fear to anger to remorse - was suddenly lost. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Colour quotes by Henry Ford
#39. Any colour - so long as it's black. #Quote by Henry Ford
Colour quotes by Jasper Fforde
#40. You want me to spy on a National Colour operative?'
'Wow,' she said, 'you got it. I thought I was going to have to explain that one for a lot longer. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Colour quotes by Isabella Beeton
#41. The half-hour before dinner has always been considered as the great ordeal through which the mistress, in giving a dinner-party, will either pass with flying colours, or lose many of her laurels. #Quote by Isabella Beeton
Colour quotes by J.D. Robb
#42. She turned toward Roarke's office, then stopped in the doorway. He was at his console; captain of his ship. He'd drawn his hair back so it lay on his neck in a short, gleaming black tail. His eyes were cool, cool blue. The colour they were when his mind was fully occupied. He'd taken off his dinner jacket, his shirt was loose at the collar, the sleeves rolled up. There was something ... just something about that look that always and forever grabbed her in the gut. She could look at him for hours, and at the end of it, still marvel that he belonged to her.
"Someone wants to hurt you," she thought. "I'm not going to let them. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Colour quotes by Thomas Mann
#43. Very likely even his splendid coloration is a little too marked and would be objected to by those who put the laws of breeding above the value of personality, for it would appear that the classic pointer type should have a coat of one colour or at most with spots of a different one, but
never stripes. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Colour quotes by Winston Churchill
#44. Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely. Light and colour, peace and hope, will keep them company to the end of the day. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Colour quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#45. There are objects made up of two sense elements, one visual, the other auditory - the colour of a sunrise and the distant call of a bird. Other objects are made up of many elements - the sun, the water against the swimmer's chest, the vague quivering pink which one sees when the eyes are closed, the feeling of being swept away by a river or by sleep. These second degree objects can be combined with others; using certain abbreviations, the process is practically an infinite one. There are famous poems made up of one enormous word, a word which in truth forms a poetic object, the creation of the writer. The fact that no one believes that nouns refer to an actual reality means, paradoxically enough, that there is no limit to the numbers of them. #Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Colour quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#46. I am not ... totally unreceptive to colour providing it makes its appearance quietly, deferentially, and without undue fanfare. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Colour quotes by Pliny The Younger
#47. I have spent these several days past, in reading and writing, with the most pleasing tranquility imaginable. You will ask, "How that can possibly be in the midst of Rome?" It was the time of celebrating the Circensian games; an entertainment for which I have not the least taste. They have no novelty, no variety to recommend them, nothing, in short, one would wish to see twice. It does the more surprise me therefore that so many thousand people should be possessed with the childish passion of desiring so often to see a parcel of horses gallop, and men standing upright in their chariots. If, indeed, it were the swiftness of the horses, or the skill of the men that attracted them, there might be some pretence of reason for it. But it is the dress they like; it is the dress that takes their fancy. And if, in the midst of the course and contest, the different parties were to change colours, their different partisans would change sides, and instantly desert the very same men and horses whom just before they were eagerly following with their eyes, as far as they could see, and shouting out their names with all their might. Such mighty charms, such wondrous power reside in the colour of a paltry tunic! And this not only with the common crowd (more contemptible than the dress they espouse), but even with serious-thinking people. When I observe such men thus insatiably fond of so silly, so low, so uninteresting, so common an entertainment, I congratulate myself on my indifference to th #Quote by Pliny The Younger
Colour quotes by Alex Morritt
#48. Life is indeed colourful. We can feel in the pink one day, with our bank balances comfortably in the black, and the grass seemingly no greener on the other side of the fence. Then out of the blue, something tiresome happens that makes us see red, turn ashen white, even purple with rage. Maybe controlling our varying emotions is just 'colour management' by another name. #Quote by Alex Morritt
Colour quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#49. Because they are so emphatically there, and so inconvertibly interior, it is almost inevitable that we take our feelings seriously as reputable guides to the reality that is deep within us--our hearts before God. But feelings are no more spiritual than muscles. They are entirely physical. They are real, and they are important. But they are real and important in the same way that our fingernails and noses are important--we would not want to live without them (although we could if we had to), but their length and shape and colour tell us nothing about our life with God. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Colour quotes by Amish Tripathi
#50. Exactly!' The pandit beamed again. 'So think about the colour of that leaf from the perspective of the leaf itself, the colours it absorbs and the one it rejects. Is its colour green? Or is it every single colour in the world except green? #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Colour quotes by May Sinclair
#51. For with him the phantoms of the mind (which to the average man are merely phantoms) projected themselves with a bodily vividness and violence. Not only had they the colour and authority of accomplished fact, they were invested with an immortality denied to facts. #Quote by May Sinclair
Colour quotes by Gemma Malley
#52. Many people lost their lives fighting for these rights - to vote, to be free, to work, to be able to get on the same bus as someone considered their superior. And it was the next generations who embedded these changes, who came to view women as equals to men, who came to understand that skin colour is of no relevance. Young people are the future. Without them, the world stands still. #Quote by Gemma Malley
Colour quotes by Erasmus Darwin
#53. The colours of insects and many smaller animals contribute to conceal them from the larger ones which prey upon them. Caterpillars which feed on leaves are generally green; and earth-worms the colour of the earth which they inhabit; butter-flies, which frequent flowers, are coloured like them; small birds which frequent hedges have greenish backs like the leaves, and light-coloured bellies like the sky, and are hence less visible to the hawk who passes under them or over them. #Quote by Erasmus Darwin
Colour quotes by Anthony Burgess
#54. The ideal reader of my novels is a lapsed Catholic and failed musician, short-sighted, colour-blind, auditorily biased, who has read the books that I have read. #Quote by Anthony Burgess
Colour quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#55. My house here is painted the yellow colour of fresh butter on the outside, with glaringly green shutters; it stands in full sunlight in a square that has a green garden with plane trees, oleanders and acacias. It is completely whitewashed inside, with a floor made of red bricks. And over it there is the intensely blue sky. In this house I can love and breathe, meditate and paint. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Colour quotes by Frantz Fanon
#56. As I begin to recognise that the Negro is the symbol of sin, I catch myself hating the Negro. But then I recognise that I am a Negro. There are two ways out of this conflict. Either I ask others to pay no attention to my skin, or else I want them to be aware of it. I try then to find value for what is bad
since I have unthinkingly conceded that the black man is the colour of evil. In order to terminate this neurotic situation, in which I am compelled to choose an unhealthy, conflictual solution, fed on fantasies, hostile, inhuman in short, I have only one solution: to rise above this absurd drama that others have staged around me, to reject the two terms that are equally unacceptable, and through one human being, to reach out for the universal.
When the Negro dives
in other words, goes under
something remarkable occurs. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Colour quotes by Gloria D. Gonsalves
#57. If we can love the wrong person (recall your heartbreaks), we can love those different from our skin colour, religion and sexuality. #Quote by Gloria D. Gonsalves
Colour quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#58. And of all the objects under my immediate advisement I noted this yacht with the most pleasure and approval. White in colour, in size resembling a young liner, it lent a decided tone to the Chuffnell Regis foreshore. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Colour quotes by Sebastian Barry
#59. Gods work! Silence so great it hurts your ears, colour so bright it hurts your staring eyes. A vicious ruined class of man could cry at such scenes because it seems to tell him that his life is not approved. The remnant of innocence burns in his breast like a ember of the very sun. #Quote by Sebastian Barry
Colour quotes by Fernand Khnopff
#60. It's strange. When I put something incomprehensible into a picture, it's usually because the form and colour interest me and because it just happens to fit in. Thwn my friends come along : 'What is that suppose to mean _' And they rack their brains for an interpretation, finding so many ingenious explanations that I feel quite proud of all the unarticulated ideas concealed in my pictures." - Fernand Khnopff to Alma Mahler, while walking in the Prater in Vienna, from her diary July 1899 #Quote by Fernand Khnopff
Colour quotes by Jon Stewart
#61. Here's what I realized about the yam - it's the same colour as a Nerf ball. You may be wondering: 'Is he saying he ate a Nerf ball?' ... #Quote by Jon Stewart
Colour quotes by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
#62. Phoebe Marks was a person who never lost her individuality. Silent and self-contained, she seemed to hold herself within herself, and take no colour from the outer world. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
Colour quotes by Yann Martel
#63. Just as music is noise that makes sense, a painting is colour that makes sense, so a story is life that makes sense. #Quote by Yann Martel
Colour quotes by Leslie Charteris
#64. I am an absurd idealist. But I believe that all that must come true. For, unless it comes true, the world will be laid desolate. And I believe that it can come true. I believe that, by the grace of God, men will awake presently and be men again, and colour and laughter and splendid living will return to a grey civilisation. But that will only come true because a few men will believe in it, and fight for it, and fight in its name against everything that sneers and snarls at that ideal. #Quote by Leslie Charteris
Colour quotes by Pyotr Kropotkin
#65. That we are utopians is well known. So utopian are we that we go the length of believing that the revolution can and ought to assure shelter, food and clothes to all – an idea extremely displeasing to middle-class citizens, whatever their party colour, for they are quite alive to the fact that it is not easy to keep the upper hand of a people whose hunger is satisfied. #Quote by Pyotr Kropotkin
Colour quotes by Sharon Kay Penman
#66. The great hall was shimmering in light, sun streaming from the open windows, and ablaze with colour, the walls decorated with embroidered hangings in rich shades of gold and crimson. New rushes had been strewn about, fragrant with lavender, sweet woodruff, and balm ... the air was ... perfumed with honeysuckle and violet, their seductive scents luring in from the gardens butterflies as blue as the summer sky. #Quote by Sharon Kay Penman
Colour quotes by Dee Juusan
#67. Grey is… such a mean word. I don't remember a time when I thought grey was anything but… pain. No matter how many clothes I've designed, I've always avoided that one colour. It's a colour that is undecided. A colour that is full of heartache, confusion and misunderstanding. Yet it seems… Everyone else chose to be grey. Left all other colours. Left black and it's darkness. Left white and it's lightness. And just, hold on to all shades of grey. To me… Grey is not a colour no a feeling. Grey is… you and me. #Quote by Dee Juusan
Colour quotes by Elton John
#68. Holy Moses, let us live in peace. Let us strive to find a way to make all hatred cease. There's a man over there, what's his colour I don't care, he's my brother, let us live in peace. #Quote by Elton John
Colour quotes by William Sansom
#69. What is the colour of Christmas?
The red of the toyshops on a dark winter's afternoon,
Of Father Christmas and the robin's breast?
Or green?
Green of holly and spruce and mistletoe in the house,
dark shadow of summer in leafless winter?
One might plainly add a romance of white,
fields of frost and snow;
thus white, green, red- reducing the event to the level of a Chianti bottle.
But many will say that the significant colour is gold,
gold of fire and treasure, of light in the winter dark; and this gets closer,
For the true colour of Christmas is Black.
Black of winter, black of night, black of frost and of the east wind,
black of dangerous shadows beyond the firelight.

I am not sure who wrote this. I got it from page nine of "A Book of Christmas" by William Sansom. Google didn't help. It is rather true I think, that the true color of Christmas is black. For like the author said in succeeding sentences "The table yellow with electric light, the fire by which stories are told, the bright spangle of the tree- they all blazé out of shadow and out of a darkness of winter #Quote by William Sansom
Colour quotes by Liane Moriarty
#70. She reminds herself that everyone has thoughts they wouldn't care to share with the world. Many people have quite perverse thoughts about doing things with animals or fruit, or being spanked by nurses. The difference, of course, is that their thoughts are securely locked away behind bland faces, whereas Sophie's are always in danger of being revealed to all in a sudden flood of colour. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Colour quotes by Democritus
#71. By convention sweet is sweet, by convention bitter is bitter, by convention hot is hot, by convention cold is cold, by convention colour is colour. But in reality there are atoms and the void. That is, the objects of sense are supposed to be real and it is customary to regard them as such, but in truth they are not. Only the atoms and the void are real. #Quote by Democritus
Colour quotes by Yann Martel
#72. Henry had written a novel because there was a hole in him that needed filling, a question that needed answering, a patch of canvas that needed painting - that blend of anxiety, curiosity and joy that is at the origin of art - and he had filled the hole, answered the question, splashed colour on the canvas, all done for himself, because he had to. Then complete strangers told him that his book had filled a hole in them, had answered a question, had brought colour to their lives. The comfort of strangers, be it a smile, a pat on the shoulder or a word of praise, is truly a comfort. #Quote by Yann Martel
Colour quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#73. She tried to imagine Holly as a demon prince of the sea, her thoughts quickly wandering off… she imagined that he would have a long velvet cloak in the colour of slate, like the water of the harbour, that he would have a high-pointed, glossy crystal crown in colours of turquoise and periwinkle, resembling the spiky blossoms of a sea holly plant, that he would have a sceptre made of polished black pearls, sharp razor clams and shimmering rainbow abalone shells… and she burst out laughing loudly there in the street before she could contain herself.

"What are you laughing at?" asked Holly, looking around.

"…Oh, uh, nothing," Casey exclaimed, stepping back on the ground. "c'mon, let's keep walking. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Colour quotes by Patrick Ness
#74. THERE IT IS,' my mother says, and what she means is that the dot we've been nearing for weeks, the one that's been growing into a larger dot with two smaller dots circling it, has now become even larger than that, growing from a dot to a disc, shining back the light from its sun, until you can see the blue of its oceans, the green of its forests, the white of its polar caps, a circle of colour against the black beyond. #Quote by Patrick Ness
Colour quotes by Amish Tripathi
#75. So think about the colour of that leaf from the perspective of the leaf itself. What colour it absorbs and what it rejects. Is its colour green? Or is it every single colour in the world, except green?' Shiva #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Colour quotes by Nalo Hopkinson
#76. I tried to get the word out to people who are information hubs in their communities, because they could propagate the call quickly. One challenge is that breaking science fiction means, well, breaking science fiction. Many communities of colour have a different approach to narratives of science. #Quote by Nalo Hopkinson
Colour quotes by Sebastian Smee
#77. Pastoureau combines a charming, conversational tone with a haughtiness I found entirely endearing. A director of studies at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes at the Sorbonne in Paris, he writes from a position of professorial confidence. He has conducted extensive research into the history of colour for a quarter century and his aim is to correct misapprehensions and banish ignorance. His style is not to inquire, explore or interrogate, in the fashion of academic studies today. It is to impart knowledge. #Quote by Sebastian Smee
Colour quotes by Walter J. Phillips
#78. It is often said that the modern exhibition has ruined painting. It is an unfortunate fact that it does encourage competition, so that, to attract attention to his work, an artist is tempted to descend to sensationalism, whether it is expressed by strong colour, grotesque handling, unusual subject, or sheer size. #Quote by Walter J. Phillips
Colour quotes by Marcus Sedgwick
#79. The binary colour of words on a page give the sense of simplicity and clarity. But life doesn't work like that. And neither should a good story. A good story ought to leave a little grey behind, I think. #Quote by Marcus Sedgwick
Colour quotes by Christian Louboutin
#80. Even if you don't like colours, you will end up having something red. For everyone who doesn't like colour, red is a symbol of a lot of culture. It has a different signification but never a bad one. #Quote by Christian Louboutin
Colour quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#81. The beauty of your passion is in the colours of your belief. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
Colour quotes by Meg Rosoff
#82. When a creature begins to emerge from it's chrysails there is a point at which it is neither one thing nor the other, not quite grown into a new identity nor rid of the old one.
It's wings are folded and sticky, it's colours hidden. Whether it will emerge in shades of emerald and lapis lazuli or the colour of mud is yet to be revealed.
It is that long, still, moment of waiting that fascinates me utterly. The suspence of waiting for beauty to unfurl. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Colour quotes by Willa Cather
#83. Yes, Sangre de Cristo; but no matter how scarlet the sunset, those red hills never became vermillion, but a more and more intense rose-carnelian; not the colour of living blood, the Bishop had often reflected, but the colour of the dried blood of saints and martyres preserved in old churches in Rome, which liquefies upon occasion. #Quote by Willa Cather
Colour quotes by Lauren Oliver
#84. And a face above mine, white and beautiful, eyes as large as the moon. You saved me. A hand on my cheek, cool and dry. Why did you save me? Words welling up on a tide: No, the opposite. Eyes the colour of a dawn sky, a crown of blond hair, so bright and white and blinding I could swear it was a halo. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Colour quotes by Jay Woodman
#85. Meltwater (from the book Blue Bridge)

Up here. A face
Loses its lines

I look to see
The colour of your eyes …
They have turned
To water.

I lean forward
To catch
The scent of your hair –
All I smell is heather.

I touch your hand
And all I feel is earth and stones.
There is nothing left
But the hillside's breast

Your flesh and bones
Have vanished. #Quote by Jay Woodman
Colour quotes by Oscar Wilde
#86. I was a man who stood in symbolic relations to the art and culture of my age ... The gods had given me almost everything. I had genius, a distinguished name, high social position, brilliancy,intellectual daring; I made art a philosophy, and philosophy an art: I altered the minds of men and the colour of things: there was nothing I said or did that did not make people wonder ... I treated Art as the supreme reality, and life as mere mode of fiction: I awoke the imagination of my century so that it created myth and legend around me: I summed up all systems in a phrase, and all existence in an epigram. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Colour quotes by Marie Clements
I see you - and don't worry, you're not white.

I'm pretty sure I'm white. I'm English.

White is blindness - it has nothing to do with the colour of your skin. #Quote by Marie Clements
Colour quotes by J.K. Rowling
#88. Yes,' said Harry quickly. 'Listen, how much would it be to get to London?' 'Eleven Sickles,' said Stan, 'but for firteen you get 'ot chocolate, and for fifteen you get an 'ot-water bottle an' a toofbrush in the colour of your choice.' Harry #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Colour quotes by Stieg Larsson
#89. She had put on make-up in a colour scheme that indicated she might be colourblind. #Quote by Stieg Larsson
Colour quotes by Donatella Versace
#90. I don't even know what my natural color is. Natural? What is natural? What is that? I do not believe in totally natural for women. For me, natural has something to do with vegetables #Quote by Donatella Versace
Colour quotes by C.J. Flood
#91. The sky was the colour of a sucked-out blue ice-pop #Quote by C.J. Flood
Colour quotes by Willem De Kooning
#92. The 'Women' had to do with the female painted through all ages, all those idols, and maybe I was stuck to a certain extent; I couldn't go on. It did one thing for me: it eliminated composition, arrangement, relationships, light - all this silly talk about line, colour and form - because that was the thing I wanted to get hold of. #Quote by Willem De Kooning
Colour quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#93. There are four seasons in a year: Winter, Spring, Summer and Colour! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Colour quotes by B.R. Ambedkar
#94. The real explanation of this failure of Hindu-Muslim unity lies in the failure to realize that what stands between the Hindus and Muslims is not a mere matter of difference, and that this antagonism is not to be attributed to material causes. It is formed by causes which take their origin in historical, religious, cultural and social antipathy, of which political antipathy is only a reflection. These form one deep river of discontent which, being regularly fed by these sources, keeps on mounting to a head and overflowing its ordinary channels. Any current of water flowing from another source however pure, when it joins it, instead of altering the colour or diluting its strength becomes lost in the main stream. The silt of this antagonism which this current has deposited, has become permanent and deep. So long as this silt keeps on accumulating and so long as this antagonism lasts, it is unnatural to expect this antipathy between Hindus and Muslims to give place to unity. #Quote by B.R. Ambedkar
Colour quotes by Marcel Proust
#95. The costumes of these two ladies seemed to me like the materialisation, snow-white or patterned with colour, of their inner activity, and, like the gestures which I had seen the Princesse de Guermantes make and which, I had no doubt, corresponded to some latent idea, the plumes which swept down from her forehead and her cousin's dazzling and spangled bodice seemed to have a special meaning, to be to each of these women an attribute which was hers and hers alone. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Colour quotes by Narendra Modi
#96. I will meet my countrymen. I understand only one language: that they are my countrymen, they are my brothers. You may see with whatever colour you want; Modi will not go into that colour. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Colour quotes by Steve Buscemi
#97. When I was in pre-production for Trees Lounge, I was hearing the cinematographer talking with the production designer about colours and this and that, and feeling like I was losing control. #Quote by Steve Buscemi

Colour quotes by Adolf Hitler
#99. If artists do see fields blue they are deranged, and should go to an asylum. If they only pretend to see them blue, they are criminals and should go to prison. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Colour quotes by David Trimble
#100. Circumstances give in reality to every political principle, its distinguishing colour, and discriminating effect. The circumstances are what render every civil and political scheme beneficial or noxious to mankind. #Quote by David Trimble
Colour quotes by Jerry Hall
#101. When it comes to clothing, I've got one really hard and fast rule: never wear beige. That's such an old-lady colour. #Quote by Jerry Hall
Colour quotes by Ufuoma Apoki
#102. Anyone can be anything, irrespective of their stars;
Anyone can be anything, irrespective of their sex (or orientation, if you may);
Anyone can be anything, irrespective of their age;
Anyone can be anything, irrespective of their size;
Anyone can be anything, irrespective of their religion (or choice of nonconformity);
Anyone can be anything, irrespective of their colour (or absence thereof);
Anyone can be anything, irrespective of any previous defining moments;
Anyone can be anything, irrespective of anything;
Even if, just, for a while.
It all comes from a place of choice, will, and determination.
And if you, probably, wonder if I blunder when I juggle such trivial and contrasting ideologies,
That's simply because I can be just about anything.
CHECK: Anyone can be anything, but not everything is expedient for everyone. #Quote by Ufuoma Apoki
Colour quotes by Joss Sheldon
#103. An hour seldom passed in which she didn't either sneeze, pick her nose, or wipe a bogie onto her snot-encrusted sleeve. But she had such a lovely colour. That pink glow which comes with the flu used to engulf her like an aura. It suited her. She always looked so damn effervescent. #Quote by Joss Sheldon
Colour quotes by John Lasseter
#104. Every technology that comes into filmmaking is first a gimmick. Think about sound with 'The Jazz Singer' or the first colour or surround sound - it takes a while for filmmakers to understand how to use it. #Quote by John Lasseter
Colour quotes by Angela Carter
#105. Iconic clothing has been secularized ... A guardsman in a dress uniform is ostensibly an icon of aggression; his coat is red as the blood he hopes to shed. Seen on a coat-hanger, with no man inside it, the uniform loses all its blustering significance and, to the innocent eye seduced by decorative colour and tactile braid, it is as abstract in symbolic information as a parasol to an Eskimo. It becomes simply magnificent. #Quote by Angela Carter
Colour quotes by Bray Wyatt
#106. I am the colour red, in a world of black and white and if you value your ability to breathe ... Don't get too close. #Quote by Bray Wyatt
Colour quotes by Kathleen Tessaro
#107. She had a smooth, low voice and a naughty, shocking sense of humour. Laughter followed in her wake; she collected admirers, both male and female, simply walking across the lobby. She had a certain knack for including everyone in her own private jokes, bending in conspiratorially to say something wickedly off-colour to one of the old stone-faced dowagers waiting for a cab. The next moment, they'd both be giggling uncontrollably #Quote by Kathleen Tessaro
Colour quotes by Constance Spry
#108. One arranges flowers as the spirit moves you; to obey some inner prompting to put this colour with that, to have brilliance here, line there, a sense of opulence in this place or sparseness in that; to suit your surroundings, your mood, the weather, the occasion. In a word, to do as you please, just as, if you could, you might paint a picture. #Quote by Constance Spry
Colour quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#109. The mountain trembled like an earthquake. Dust flew into the sky. And the rock turned dark red, like the color of blood'.
'How would you know?' Asks Sindhi cap. 'You only have a black and white television'.
'But it's a very good one. You can almost see colours. #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
Colour quotes by Greyson Chance
#110. Life without dreams is like a rainbow without colours. #Quote by Greyson Chance
Colour quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#111. The autumn always gets me badly, as it breaks into colours. I want to go south, where there is no autumn, where the cold doesn't crouch over one like a snow-leopard waiting to pounce. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Colour quotes by Lee Krasner
#112. We get used to a certain kind of colour of form or format, and it's acceptable. And to puncture that is sticking your neck out a bit. And then pretty soon, that's very acceptable. #Quote by Lee Krasner
Colour quotes by Neil Gaiman
#113. As I wouldn't wear a costume, I couldn't imagine him wanting to wear one. And seeing that the greater part of my wardrobe is black (It's a sensible colour. It goes with anything. Well, anything black)[ ... ]. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Colour quotes by Gemma Files
#114. But sometimes I do wonder if I'm love-blind the way some people are colour-blind, or most people are ghost-blind. If love (true or false, thick or thin, requited or un-) really is the only glue ever mortars our sad hearts' bricks together, and me not swift enough to recognize the label any time I happened to pass it by.
Because: living is transience, after all--people aren't really permanent 'til they're dead, no matter what you might've felt for 'em beforehand. Always changing... #Quote by Gemma Files
Colour quotes by Rick Riordan
#115. Two aisles, each a quarter of a mile long, were entirely devoted to camouflage clothing in every possible colour: desert brown, forest green, arctic grey, and hot pink, just in case your spec-ops team needed to infiltrate a child's princess-themed birthday party. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Colour quotes by Jenny Colgan
#116. I think love is caramel. Sweet and fragant; always welcome. It is the gentle golden colour of a setting harvest sun; the warmth of a squeezed embrace; the easy melting of two souls into one and a taste that lingers even when everything else has melted away. Once tasted it is never forgotten. #Quote by Jenny Colgan
Colour quotes by Walter J. Phillips
#117. It is evident that no derivative laws can teach the young student to see and apprehend colour in nature. His perception needs development as urgently as his muscles. #Quote by Walter J. Phillips
Colour quotes by Claude Monet
#118. I haven't yet managed to capture the colour of this landscape; there are moments when I'm appalled at the colours I'm having to use, I'm afraid what I'm doing is just dreadful and yet I really am understating it; the light is simply terrifying. #Quote by Claude Monet

#120. Make sure that the very different colors go next to each other so it looks deliberate. You don't want to look as if you've just run out of colour and gone for the next nearest thing. #Quote by Jackie Kay
Colour quotes by Philipp Otto Runge
#121. Colour is the ultimate in art. It is still and will always remain a mystery to us, we can only apprehend it intuitively in flowers. #Quote by Philipp Otto Runge

#122. I thought I could not breathe in that fine air That pure severity of perfect light I yearned for warmth and colour which I found In Lancelot. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Colour quotes by Tom Stoppard
#123. The colours red, blue and green are real. The colour yellow is a mystical experience shared by everybody. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Colour quotes by C.S. Pacat
#124. Laurent flushed. The colour hit his
cheeks hard, and a muscle tightened in
his jaw as whatever he felt was forcibly
repressed. It was not like any reaction
that Damen had ever seen from him
before, and he couldn't resist pushing it a
little further. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Colour quotes by Guillaume Apollinaire
#125. Color is the fruit of life. #Quote by Guillaume Apollinaire
Colour quotes by Anne Bartlett
#126. To make a lacy texture of holes and fills, turn around and purl. Pearl is also a kind of colour. Colours are all the colours of the rainbow and the colours between the rainbow colours between. I can never get indigo. Year after year, I wait for indigo, but even when the fashion is navy, you never get indigo, the glow, the long slow glow of indigo in the high night sky. #Quote by Anne Bartlett
Colour quotes by Elizabeth Jagger
#127. Never dress older than you are! The five wardrobe items you must have are a nice pair of well-fitting shoes, pajamas, sexy yet comfortable lingerie, a party dress in a bold colour and a jumpsuit. #Quote by Elizabeth Jagger
Colour quotes by Iain Pears
#128. Although of course I am aware that it changes colour in a jar. But we know why, surely? The heavier melancholic elements in the blood sink, making the top lighter and the bottom darker."
"Not so," I said firmly. "Cover the jar, and the colour does not change. And I can find no explanation of how such separation could occur in the lungs. But when it emerges from the lungs - at least, this is the case in cats - it is very much lighter in colour than when it goes in, indicating that some darkness is withdrawn from it."
"I must cut up a cat and see for myself. A live cat, was it?"
"It was for a while. #Quote by Iain Pears
Colour quotes by Samuel Beckett
#129. It took me a long time, my lifetime so to speak, to realise that the colour of an eye half seen, or the source of some distant sound, are closer to Giudecca in the hell of unknowing than the existence of God, or the origins of protoplasm, or the eistence of self, and even less worthy than these to occupy the wise, It's a bit much, a lifetime, to achieve this consoling conclusion, it doesn't leave you much time to profit by it. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Colour quotes by Charlie Laidlaw
#130. She didn't know what to say to this, or how to tell him she wasn't strong, the patina of her resolve was made of soft metal. She wasn't strong, but had become good at pretending – so good that only she knew it. She had developed a chameleon's skin; she could change colour hide behind a false facade. She wasn't made of steel. She still sometimes slept with a light on, and still sometimes heard a small child crying. #Quote by Charlie Laidlaw
Colour quotes by Yohji Yamamoto
#131. Colour disturbs people. I am confident in black, not in light. This dark side of life is attractive to me forever and from the beginning. I am a lazy designer when it comes to colour. #Quote by Yohji Yamamoto
Colour quotes by Kenneth Clark
#132. All color is no color. #Quote by Kenneth Clark
Colour quotes by H.G.Wells
#133. The Vicar stood aghast, with his smoking gun in his hand. It was no bird at all, but a youth with an extremely beautiful face, clad in a robe of saffron and with iridescent wings, across whose pinions great waves of colour, flushes of purple and crimson, golden green and intense blue, pursued one another as he writhed in his agony. Never had the Vicar seen such gorgeous floods of colour, not stained glass windows, not the wings of butterflies, not even the glories of crystals seen between prisms, no colours on earth could compare with them. Twice the Angel raised himself, only to fall over sideways again. Then the beating of the wings diminished, the terrified face grew pale, the floods of colour abated, and suddenly with a sob he lay prone, and the changing hues of the broken wings faded swiftly into one uniform dull grey hue. Oh! #Quote by H.G.Wells
Colour quotes by O. Henry
#134. It gives men courage and ambition and the nerve for anything. It has the colour of gold, is clear as a glass and shines after dark as if the sunshine were still in it. #Quote by O. Henry

#135. People say silence is golden. They're wrong. It's no colour at all, #Quote by Sarah J. Harris

#136. You put on a pair of Louboutins and the world changes colour. #Quote by Rossy De Palma
Colour quotes by Marcel Proust
#137. High up on the branches, like so many of those tiny rose-trees, their pots concealed in jackets of paper lace, whose slender stems rise in a forest from the altar on the greater festivals, a thousand buds were swelling and opening, paler in colour, but each disclosing as it burst, as at the bottom of a cup of pink marble, its blood-red stain, and suggesting even more strongly than the full-blown flowers the special, irresistible quality of the hawthorn-tree, which, wherever it budded, wherever it was about to blossom, could bud and blossom in pink flowers alone. Taking #Quote by Marcel Proust
Colour quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#138. When you do something good for the people, you give a nice colour to the pale world! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Colour quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#139. Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Colour quotes by Henry Williamson
#140. feelings for the countryside…the beauty and the wildness, the enchantment of so much colour and life and warmth of the sun. Most people are restless in the country, they feel a vacancy, and want to get back to the shops and pavements and traffic; what they call life. Sometimes this war seems to have come directly out of that restlessness. #Quote by Henry Williamson
Colour quotes by Robert Bridges
#141. I know that if odour were visible, as colour is, I'd see the summer garden in rainbow clouds. #Quote by Robert Bridges
Colour quotes by Graeme Simsion
#142. If Rosie's mother had known that eye colour was not a reliable indicator of paternity, and organised a DNA test to confirm her suspicions, there would have been no Father Project, no Great Cocktail Night, no New York Adventure, no Reform Don Project - and no Rosie Project. Had it not been for this unscheduled series of events, her daughter and I would not have fallen in love. And I would still be eating lobster every Tuesday night.
Incredible. #Quote by Graeme Simsion
Colour quotes by Stephen King
#143. The wide corridor up the centre of E Block was floored with linoleum the colour of tired old limes, and so what was the Last Mile at other prisons was called the Green Mile at Cold Mountain. #Quote by Stephen King
Colour quotes by Sarah Perry
#144. He drew in a breath and all the seasons were in it; spring greenness in the grass, and somewhere a dog-rose blooming; the secretive scent of fungus clinging to the oak, and underneath it all something sharper waiting in a promise of winter. #Quote by Sarah Perry
Colour quotes by Anthony Bailey
#145. Others, faced with Turner's competitiveness were less contented. C.R. Leslie was on hand when Turner's Helvoetsluys, to start with "a grey pictre, beautiful and true, but with no positive colour in any part of it", was hung next to Constable's Opening of Waterloo Bridge Leslie wrote that Constable's painting looked as if painted with liquid gold and silver, and Turner came several times into the room while Constable was heightening with vermilion and lake the decorations and flags of the city barges. Turner stood behind Constable, looking from "Waterloo" to his own picture, and at last went and got his palette from the Great Room where he had been touching another picture. He then put a round daub of red lead,

"somewhat bigger than a shilling, on his grey sea, [and] went away without saying a word. The intensity of the red lead, made more vivid by the coolness of his picture, caused even the vermilion and lake of Constable to look weak. I came into the room just as Turner left it. "He as been here," Said Constable, "and fired a gun. #Quote by Anthony Bailey
Colour quotes by Franz Marc
#146. Blue is the male principle, stern and spiritual. Yellow the female principle, gentle, cheerful and sensual. Red is matter, brutal and heavy and always the colour which must be fought and vanquished by the other two. #Quote by Franz Marc
Colour quotes by Gil Courtemanche
#147. You see, each country has a colour, a smell, and also a contagious sickness. In my country the sickness is complacency. In France it's arrogance, and in the United States it's ignorance."

"What about Rwanda?"

"Easy power and impunity. Here, there's total disorder. To someone who has a little money or powere, everything that seems forbidden elsewhere looks permissible and possible. All it takes is to dare it. Someone who's simply a liar in my country can be a fraud artist here, and the fraud artist gets to be a big-time thief. Chaos and most of all poverty give him powers he wouldn't have elsewhere. #Quote by Gil Courtemanche
Colour quotes by Irving Stone
#148. Only now, years after having read though the works of Shakespeare, Dickens, Scott, Poe, Balzac did he realise that even the most prolific writer created only one novel; throw away the individual bindings and the whole of each man's writing constituted one book: the true and complete portrait of himself. An artist had one thing to say, and one only; he might flail about, seek new techniques, forms, colour combinations, subjects, but intrinsically he would always paint the same canvas, write the same book. #Quote by Irving Stone
Colour quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#149. White is for witching, a colour to be worn so that all other colours can enter you, so that you may use them. At a pinch, cream will do. #Quote by Helen Oyeyemi
Colour quotes by Hemant Mehta
#150. If atheism is a religion, then off is a TV channel and bald is a hair colour. #Quote by Hemant Mehta
Colour quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#151. Color ... thinks by itself, independently of the object it clothes. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Colour quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#152. Now there grows among all the rooms, replacing the night's old smoke, alcohol and sweat, the fragile, musaceous odor of Breakfast: flowery, permeating, surprising, more than the colour of winter sunlight, taking over not so much through any brute pungency or volume as by the high intricacy to the weaving of its molecules, sharing the conjuror's secret by which - though it is not often Death is told so clearly to fuck off - the living genetic chains prove even labyrinthine enough to preserve some human face down ten or twenty generations ... so the same assertion-through-structure allows this war morning's banana fragrance to meander, repossess, prevail. Is there any reason not to open every window, and let the kind scent blanket all Chelsea? As a spell, against falling objects ... #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Colour quotes by Jonathan Swift
#153. ... in open breach of the said law, under the colour of extinguishing the fire kindled in the apartment of his Majesty's most dear imperial consort, did maliciously, traitorously, and devilishly, by discharge of his urine, put out the said fire kindled in the said apartment, lying and being within the precincts of the said royal palace; against the statute in that case provided... #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Colour quotes by Titian
#154. A good painter needs only three colours: black, white and red. #Quote by Titian
Colour quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#155. Frodo drew the Ring out of his pocket again and looked at it. It now appeared plain and smooth, without mark or device that he could see. The gold looked very fair and pure, and Frodo thought how rich and beautiful was its colour, how perfect was its roundness. It was an admirable thing and altogether precious. When he took it out he had intended to fling it from him into the very hottest part of the fire. But he found now that he could not do so, not without a great struggle. He weighed the Ring in his hand, hesitating and forcing himself to remember all that Gandalf had told him; and then with an effort of will he made a movement, as if to cast it away - but he found that he had put it back in his pocket. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Colour quotes by Horace
#156. Often a purple patch or two is tacked on to a serious work of high promise, to give an effect of colour. #Quote by Horace
Colour quotes by Toby Turner
#157. I'm definitely not gonna make a joke about separating the whites and colours, so don't try to make me. So instead, I'll just say something like "BOOGABOOGABOOGADOBLUH I'M A PERSON BLUHBLUHBLGUHGHGGHGH". That appeals to everybody. #Quote by Toby Turner
Colour quotes by Sue Woolfe
#158. Does this wild errant need fade, like the colour of eyes do? #Quote by Sue Woolfe
Colour quotes by Akif Pirincci
#159. The colour grey makes you feel uneasy, makes things seem complicated and hopeless, it upsets the notion of black and white. Good and evil? There is no such thing. There is a little good and a evil, a little black and a little white. Grey is not an attractive colour, but perhaps it is the one that describes the world most accurately. #Quote by Akif Pirincci
Colour quotes by Vishal Chipkar
#160. Time is zero, no human made Calender's, colour of which the eyes could fail to identify, the taste of which the tongue could derail, the aroma of which the breathing becomes invalid when we are lost in the Kingdom
of Lord, Supreme Power. #Quote by Vishal Chipkar
Colour quotes by Curtis Ackie
#161. The heartbeat is an irregular bell tolling; the footprints create ammonite patterns in the snow; they spiral in serpentine undulations, toward a complicated centre of mass, forming a beautifully inscribed hieroglyph, the earth acting as papyrus. It's all signs and symbols; reading the emotions of another is an art, and tonight she lacks the imagination needed in order to be creative. Bewitching to behold, wings tucked neatly into the back of a loose summer jacket; his bare feet, dusky and dusty, tumble languidly toward her, over the soft crumbling ground. Dawn finds her dreams more beautiful to inhabit than reality. To her it becomes more real than the bed sheets she's pulling close to her chest. As he approaches, she continues to watch the invocation of her desire. Wherever he steps the snow flees, it's as if spring flowers from the very tips of his toes. She holds her breath as he slips his hand into hers, leading her away from the top of the hill on which they are standing. They don't follow the path, instead they tread boldly over willow roots, twigs and fern leaves. Looking upwards, in order to see the colour of the sky, Dawn crosses her fingers for a shade of blue. #Quote by Curtis Ackie
Colour quotes by Ellie Goulding
#162. I love pink - pink's my favourite. I hardly ever - weirdly - wear it, but I love the colour pink. #Quote by Ellie Goulding
Colour quotes by Nicolas Bouvier
#163. That day, I really believed that I had grasped something and that henceforth my life would be changed. But insights cannot be held for ever. Like water, the world ripples across you and for a while you take on its colours. Then it recedes, and leaves you face to face with the void you carry inside yourself, confronting that central inadequacy of soul which you must learn to rub shoulders with and to combat, and which, paradoxically, may be our surest impetus. #Quote by Nicolas Bouvier
Colour quotes by Gloria D. Gonsalves
#164. Sometimes it is not about the colour of your skin but the character you portray. Strive to be unique in your doings and only then you might have the right to blame it on racism. Consequently how you choose to react towards a racist experience should do yourself and your race a proud favour. #Quote by Gloria D. Gonsalves
Colour quotes by Roald Dahl
#165. Mr Willy Wonka can make marshmallows that taste of violets, and rich caramels that change colour every ten seconds as you suck them, and little feathery sweets that melt away deliciously the moment you put them between your lips. He can make chewing-gum that never loses its taste, and sugar balloons that you can blow up to enormous sizes before you pop them with a pin and gobble them up. And, by a most secret method, he can make lovely blue birds' eggs with black spots on them, and when you put one of these in your mouth, it gradually gets smaller and smaller until suddenly there is nothing left except a tiny little DARKRED sugary baby bird sitting on the tip of your tongue. #Quote by Roald Dahl
Colour quotes by Yotam Ottolenghi
#166. Beetroot is a great salad ingredient, especially when still warm; the colour ain't bad, either. #Quote by Yotam Ottolenghi
Colour quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#167. Not always do those who dare such divine conflict prevail. Night after night the sweat of agony may burst dark on the forehead; the supplicant may cry for mercy with that soundless voice the soul utters when its appeal is to the Invisible. "Spare my beloved," it may implore. "Heal my life's life. Rend not from me what long affection entwines with my whole nature. God of heaven, bend, hear, be clement!" And after this cry and strife the sun may rise and see him worsted. That opening morn, which used to salute him with the whisper of zephyrs, the carol of skylarks, may breathe, as its first accents, from the dear lips which colour and heat have quitted, --

"Oh! I have had a suffering night. This morning I am worse. I have tried to rise. I cannot. Dreams I am unused to have troubled me."

Then the watcher approaches the patient's pillow, and sees a new and strange moulding of the familiar features, feels at once that the insufferable moment draws nigh, knows that it is God's will his idol shall be broken, and bends his head, and subdues his soul to the sentence he cannot avert and scarce can bear. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Colour quotes by Terry Pratchett
#168. Once we were blobs in the sea, and then fishes, and then lizards and rats and then monkeys, and hundreds of things in between. This hand was once a fin, this hand once had claws! In my human mouth I have the pointy teeth of a wolf and the chisel teeth of a rabbit and the grinding teeth of a cow! Our blood is as salty as the sea we used to live in! When we're frightened, the hair on our skin stands up, just like it did when we had fur. We are history! Everything we've ever been on the way to becoming us, we still are. [ ... ]
I'm made up of the memories of my parents and my grandparents, all my ancestors. They're in the way I look, in the colour of my hair. And I'm made up of everyone I've ever met who's changed the way I think. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Colour quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#169. Riley squinted. He ran his fingers along my neck. When he found the collar he explored the surface and tried to tug it. "No seams. It doesn't fell like metal. The colour is amazing".
"Why?" (Trella)
"It blends in. It matches your skin. Didn't you know?" (Riley)
"No mirrors in my cell." (Trella)
He gasped with mock horror. "So cruel! How did you ever survive?" (Riley) #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Colour quotes by Jan Struther
#170. [F]ireworks had for her a direct and magical appeal. Their attraction was more complex than that of any other form of art. They had pattern and sequence, colour and sound, brilliance and mobility; they had suspense, surprise, and a faint hint of danger; above all, they had the supreme quality of transience, which puts the keenest edge on beauty and makes it touch some spring in the heart which more enduring excellences cannot reach. #Quote by Jan Struther
Colour quotes by Christopher Eccleston
#171. I loved playing [the Doctor], and taking part in the basic essence and message of the series which is, it's a short life, seize it, and live it as fully as you can. Care for others. Be respectful of all other life forms, regardless of colour or creed. To be part of that was fantastic. #Quote by Christopher Eccleston
Colour quotes by Anthony Warlow
#172. With food, you're the artist; you put the colour in it, you present it to the table and it has the ability to knock out the senses. It can look fabulous, be beautifully presented and smell great and taste good as well. #Quote by Anthony Warlow
Colour quotes by Benny Bellamacina
#173. If the colour of life turns grey turn the palette the other way #Quote by Benny Bellamacina
Colour quotes by Jane Birkin
#174. I colour my hair mousy brown and I wear makeup only on stage. I use Laura Mercier - something called Biscuit, I think. I run one tiny sponge over my face and cover the red blotches. If I've got some rouge, I'll bung it on my mouth and cheeks. #Quote by Jane Birkin
Colour quotes by Bilal Tanweer
#175. I hid myself behind Baba. It was like being in the shadow. Shadows are empty places in things. The colour of shadow is also black, which is the color of empty things. Blackboard is also black when it is empty No one can draw shadows on blackboards because shadows keep on changing. You cannot draw changing things. But it happens, you know; you draw and you look and it has changed. #Quote by Bilal Tanweer
Colour quotes by William Hjortsberg
#176. I was examining the perfumed, coloured candles guaranteed to bring good fortune with continued use when a lovely mocha-skinned girl came in from the back room and stood behind the counter. She wore a white smock over her dress and looked about nineteen or twenty. Her wavy, shoulder-length hair was the colour of polished mahogany. A number of thin, silver hoops jingled on her fine-boned wrist. "May I help you?" she asked. Just beneath her carefully modulated diction lingered the melodic calypso lilt of the Caribbean. #Quote by William Hjortsberg
Colour quotes by Marcel Proust
#177. Burying the bush in these little rosettes, almost too ravishing in colour, this rustic 'pompadour'. High up on the branches, like so many of those tiny rose-trees, their pots .concealed in jackets of paper lace, whose slender stems rise in a forest from the altar of the greater festivals, a thousand buds were swelling and opening, paler in colour, but each disclosing as it burst, as at the bottom of a cup of pink marble, its blood-red stain ... #Quote by Marcel Proust
Colour quotes by Glenda Millard
#178. I couldn't tell what colour her eyes were. They were wet and dark and shining, like pools of deep, still water. For a second I thought I could see pictures in them, like I was looking right inside her to where her memories were. She smiled, and I wondered if she knew what I'd seen or if she could see the pictures I kept hidden inside myself. #Quote by Glenda Millard
Colour quotes by Luis De Camoes
#179. A thousand trees are seen towards heaven rising, With beautiful and sweetly-scented apples; The orange, wearing on its lovely fruit The colour Daphne carried in her hair; Bent low, nay almost fallen to the ground, The citron, heavy with its yellow load; And, last, the graceful lemon with its fruit Of pleasant smell and shaped like virgins' breasts. #Quote by Luis De Camoes
Colour quotes by Jennifer Morrison
#180. I'm trying to incorporate colour into my life. Until recently, everything in my closet was black, white, grey, navy or olive. #Quote by Jennifer Morrison
Colour quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#181. Dr. Watson's summary list of Sherlock Holmes's strengths and weaknesses:
1. Knowledge of Literature: Nil.
2. Knowledge of Philosophy: Nil.
3. Knowledge of Astronomy: Nil.
4. Knowledge of Politics: Feeble.
5. Knowledge of Botany: Variable. Well up in belladonna, opium, and poisons generally. Knows nothing of practical gardening.
6. Knowledge of Geology: Practical but limited. Tells at a glance different soils from each other. After walks has shown me splashes upon his trousers, and told me by their colour and consistence in what part of London he had received them.
7. Knowledge of Chemistry: Profound.
8. Knowledge of Anatomy: Accurate but unsystematic.
9. Knowledge of Sensational Literature: Immense. He appears to know every detail of every horror perpetrated in the century.
10. Plays the violin well.
11. Is an expert singlestick player, boxer, and swordsman.
12. Has a good practical knowledge of British law. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Colour quotes by Charles Stross
#182. There's a faint popping noise, and the entire wall of the incident room shifts to the colour of the night sky above a Japanese city. #Quote by Charles Stross
Colour quotes by Gabrielle Wittkop
#183. My tailor - a tailor who maintains the devoted manners of a bygone era and who speaks to me in the third person - finally couldn't prevent himself from suggesting a less morose wardrobe for me. "For however elegant, black is sad." And so it's the colour that suits me, for I am also sad. #Quote by Gabrielle Wittkop
Colour quotes by Virginia Woolf
#184. Moths that fly by day are not properly to be called moths; they do not excite that pleasant sense of dark autumn nights and ivy-blossom which the commonest yellow-underwing asleep in the shadow of the curtain never fails to rouse in us. They are hybrid creatures, neither gay like butterflies nor sombre like their own species. Nevertheless the present specimen, with his narrow hay-coloured wings, fringed with a tassel of the same colour, seemed to be content with life. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Colour quotes by Joshua Reynolds
#185. Raphael and Titian seem to have looked at Nature for different purposes; they both had the power of extending their view to the whole; but one looked only for the general effect as produced by form, the other as produced by colour. #Quote by Joshua Reynolds
Colour quotes by N.R. Walker
#186. This is kind of insane, isn't it?" I asked. "I've only known you for a few days."
"Five days. Six days if you include today." His blue eyes met mine, our foreheads still touching. "It's not insane. Insanity is a state of mind which prevents normal perception and/or behaviours."
I chuckled at his clinical reply, but he pulled back so he could see my face properly and shrugged. "Jack, what I perceive of you, and how I've conducted myself in your company is with full mental cohesion." His cheeks stained with colour. "And Einstein would have you believe that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." He bit his lip and laughed at himself, I think. "But I don't want different results. I wouldn't change a thing. #Quote by N.R. Walker
Colour quotes by Ray Bradbury
#187. But most of all," she said, "I like to watch people. Sometimes I ride the subway all day and look at them and listen to them. I just want to figure out who they are and what they want and where they're going. Sometimes I even go to the Fun Parks and ride in the jet cars when they race on the edge of town at midnight and the police don't care as long as they're insured. As long as everyone has ten thousand insurance everyone's happy.

Sometimes I sneak around and listen in subways. Or I listen at soda fountains, and do
you know what?"


"People don't talk about anything."

"Oh, they must!"

"No, not anything. They name a lot of cars or clothes or swimming-pools mostly and say how swell! But they all say the same things and nobody says anything different from anyone else. And most of the time in the cafes they have the jokeboxes on and the same jokes most of the time, or the musical wall lit and all the coloured patterns running up and down, but it's only colour and all abstract. And at the museums, have you ever been? All abstract. That's all there is now. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Colour quotes by A.J. Darkholme
#188. The ignorance of the world often makes people believe that life should be black and white – that you must choose sides – and so the world of colourful gradients goes unadmired. #Quote by A.J. Darkholme
Colour quotes by Henry Ford
#189. Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black. #Quote by Henry Ford
Colour quotes by Neha Donald
#190. I am ME ...
I am Special Becoz I am Unique,
I am the Stardust which everyone seek.
I am the Light and the Hope,
Walking on an Everlasting Rope..
I am Hugs and Sometimes Tears,
I am the Sky, the Sea and the Earth.
I am the Colour No One can Name..
I Trust Yet I Fear ...
I Hide yet I don't hold anything back,
I am Free ...
I am the Words " I Love You"
I am swirls of Red , Pink and Blue. #Quote by Neha Donald
Colour quotes by Jeremiah Seed
#191. Men of superior vivacity and wit, when they take a wrong turn, are generally worse than other men: because wit, consisting in a lively representation of ideas assembled together, gives every sensible object those heightening touches, and that striking imagery, which is unknown to men of slower apprehensions: wit being to sensible objects, what light is to bodies; it does not merely show them as they are in themselves: it gives an adventitious colour, which is not a property inherent in them: it lends them beauties which are not their own. #Quote by Jeremiah Seed
Colour quotes by Christina Hendricks
#192. I dyed my hair about 42 different colours, and kids can be pretty judgmental about people who are different. But instead of breaking down and conforming, I stood firm. That is also probably why I was unhappy. #Quote by Christina Hendricks
Colour quotes by David Papineau
#193. I rather incline towards 'conceptualism', in line with my view of colour perception - I don't think that we can represent objects and properties for which we have no concepts, not even in perceptual experience. In this sense I differ from those who defend 'non-conceptual content' like Michael Tye and Chris Peacocke. #Quote by David Papineau
Colour quotes by Joseph Plaskett
#194. Impressionism came about because it suddenly became apparent that pure colours mix in the eye in a more dazzling way than they have ever been mixed in paint. #Quote by Joseph Plaskett
Colour quotes by Kate Griffin
#195. The word spread.
It began with the techno-literates: young summoners who couldn't quite get their containment circles right and who had fallen back on Facebook to keep themselves occupied while the sacred incense was cooked in their mum's microwaves; eager diviners who scoured the internet for clues as to the future of tomorrow, and who read the truth of things in the static at the corners of the screen; bored vampires who knew that it was too early to go out and hunt, too late still to be in the coffin. The message was tweeted and texted onwards, sent out through the busy wires of the city, from laptop to PC, PC to Mac, from mobile phones the size of old breeze blocks through to palm-held devices that not only received your mail, but regarded it as their privilege to sort it into colour-coordinated categories for your consideration. The word was whispered between the statues that sat on the imperial buildings of Kingsway, carried in the scuttling of the rats beneath the city streets, flashed from TV screen to TV screen in the flickering windows of the shuttered electronics stores, watched over by beggars and security cameras, and the message said:
We are Magicals Anonymous.
We are going to save the city. #Quote by Kate Griffin
Colour quotes by Louise Bourgeois
#196. The colour blue - that is my colour - and the colour blue means you have left the drabness of day-to-day reality to be transported into - not a world of fantasy, it's not a world of fantasy - but a world of freedom where you can say what you like and what you don't like. This has been expressed forever by the colour blue, which is really sky blue. #Quote by Louise Bourgeois
Colour quotes by Hiromi
#197. I have always liked black and white! It is simple and the colour of the piano. #Quote by Hiromi
Colour quotes by Karl Wiggins
#198. Here's a thought for you. If you were blind you wouldn't understand the concept of colour, of pigments and shades. You wouldn't understand visual perception at all. You'd be completely unaware of it. But what if there's something else? Some aspect of something magical and mysterious that is all around us, yet we can't see it, we can't feel it, we can't taste it, and we can't smell it. In fact, we have no organ in our body capable of discovering it and observing it. We can't track it down, we can't stumble across it, and we can't smoke it out. We're not born with the organ to bring it to light, and so it can't be revealed to us in any other way.

And what if these enchanted, otherworldly aspects, for want of a better word, are strands in a cosmic web that connects all your tribe, so wherever you wander in the world, there's a spiritual force that continues to connect you to your tribe? #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Colour quotes by Amit Abraham
#199. Black Is The Most Beautiful colour because it does not reflect it absorbs all into itself. #Quote by Amit Abraham
Colour quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#200. Of having forgotten the colour of loves and the taste of hatreds. We thought we were immortal. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
