Famous quotes containing the words colours, school and/or house:

    So different are the colours of life, as we look forward to the future, or backward to the past; and so different the opinions and sentiments which this contrariety of appearance naturally produces, that the conversation of the old and young ends generally with contempt or pity on either side.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Loosed betwixt eye and lid, the swimming beams
    Of memory, blind school of cuttlefish,
    Rise to the air, plunge to the cold streams....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Time, which shows so vacant, indivisible, and divine in its coming, is slit and peddled into trifles and tatters. A door is to be painted, a lock to be repaired. I want wood, or oil, or meal, or salt; the house smokes, or I have a headache; then the tax; and an affair to be transacted with a man without heart or brains; and the stinging recollection of an injurious or very awkward word,—these eat up the hours.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
