Famous quotes containing the words colours and and/or colours:

    The sounding cataract
    Haunted me like a passion: the tall rock,
    The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood,
    Their colours and their forms, were then to me
    An appetite: a feeling and a love,
    That had no need of a remoter charm,
    By thought supplied, or any interest
    Unborrowed from the eye.—
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    In a borealic iceberg came Victoria; she
    Knew Prince Albert’s tall memorial took the colours of the floreal
    And the borealic iceberg;
    Dame Edith Sitwell (1887–1964)
