Famous quotes containing the word blue:

    The blue and the gray. Let us march together beneath the star- spangled banner.
    Laurence Stallings (1894–1968)

    That air would disappear from the whole earth in time, perhaps; but long after his day. He did not know just when it had become so necessary to him, but he had come back to die in exile for the sake of it. Something soft and wild and free, something that whispered to the ear on the pillow, lightened the heart, softly, softly picked the lock, slid the bolts, and released the prisoned spirit of man into the wind, into the blue and gold, into the morning, into the morning!
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    There is no blue without yellow and without orange.
    Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890)
