Famous quotes containing the word colouring:

    Every philosophy is tinged with the colouring of some secret imaginative background, which never emerges explicitly into its train of reasoning.
    Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947)

    The innocent brightness of a new-born Day
    Is lovely yet;
    The Clouds that gather round the setting sun
    Do take a sober colouring from an eye
    That hath kept watch o’er man’s mortality;
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
