Colors

Famous quotes containing the word colors:

    The butterfly’s attractiveness derives not only from colors and symmetry: deeper motives contribute to it. We would not think them so beautiful if they did not fly, or if they flew straight and briskly like bees, or if they stung, or above all if they did not enact the perturbing mystery of metamorphosis: the latter assumes in our eyes the value of a badly decoded message, a symbol, a sign.
    Primo Levi (1919–1987)

    Hoot how the inhuman colors fell
    Into place beside her, where she was,
    Like human conciliations, more like
    A profounder reconciling, an act,
    An affirmation free from doubt.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The light is there, and colors surround us. However, if there were no light nor colors in our own eye, we wouldn’t perceive such things outside of us.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
