Famous quotes containing the word colour:
“What a lovely thing a rose is!... Our highest assurance of the goodness of Providence seems to me to rest in the flowers. All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But the rose is an extra. Its smell and its colour are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras.”
—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (18591930)
“We dreamed that a great painter had been born
To cold Clare rock and Galway rock and thorn,
To that stern colour and that delicate line
That are our secret discipline
Wherein the gazing heart doubles her might....”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“The tears I shed
werent bitter things,
so ice-floes in spring
touched by the sun,
show colour of flowers.”
—Hilda Doolittle (18861961)
