My skin is kind of sort of brownish
Pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green,
But I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown,
But it's silver when it's wet.
And all the colors I am inside
Have not been invented yet.

~Shel Silverstein, "Colors"

I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colors.  I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns.  ~Winston Churchill

Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons.  ~Al Hirschfeld

Actually, all education is self-education.  A teacher is only a guide, to point out the way, and no school, no matter how excellent, can give you education.  What you receive is like the outlines in a child's coloring book.  You must fill in the colors yourself.  ~Louis L'Amour

Sit in reverie, and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Colors are the smiles of nature.  ~Leigh Hunt

Pink is not just a color, it's an attitude - Author Unknown

Colors answer feeling in man> shapes answer thought; and motion answers will. - John Sterling

My teacher asked my favorite color. ... I said ‘Rainbow’.... and I was punished to stand out of my class. - Saket Assertive

Men and women are limited not by the place of their birth, not by the color of their skin, but by the size of their hope - Johnson John

many colors proclaims images of many Thoughts.  - Donna A. Favors
