Famous quotes containing the words colour and/or people:

    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 (1859–1930)

    Good people get cheated, just as good horses get ridden.
    Chinese proverb.
