Red = stop. Green = go. Our use of color is simple and unambiguous as a traffic light, but more often we use it to communicate on a variety of levels.

In an atmosphere of uniform density the most distant things seen through it, such as the mountains, in consequence of the great quantity of atmosphere which is between your eye and them, will appear blue.

If you have ever followed a rainbow to its end, it leads you to the ground on which you are standing. Alan Cohen

I can paint you the skin of Venus with mud, provided you let me surround it as I will. Eugene Delacroix

We would have difficulty in imagining a world without color, a world of white, and gray, and black forms. When we look at ordinary photographs we see this neutral sort of world, but even then we do not realize the full experience of grayness that living in a really colorless world would give us, because our minds are full of memories of the actual hues of nature, the greens of foliage, the blues of the sky. Therefore, when we look at a photograph these memories are awakened and promptly associate themselves with the gray forms of the print, and impart to them a feeling of color borrowed from our past experiences. WALTER SARGENT

Colors.Colors.Colors. Ice T

Painting is something that takes place among the colors, and … one has to leave them alone completely, so that they can settle the matter among themselves.

One can enjoy a rainbow without necessarily forgetting the forces that made it. Mark Twain

sayings-and-quotes-about-colors

Beauty without color seems somehow to belong to another world. Murasaki Shikibu

People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and ends, but to me it’s quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spot blues. Murky darkness. In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them. MARKUS ZUSAK

You may complain that rain has stained your plans but you cannot restrain the rain; rain is water and water is life. None appreciates rainbow and sunshine better than he on whose parade it has rained. Vincent Okay Nwachukwu

I want to know one thing. What is color? Pablo Picasso

Color is crucial in painting, but it is very hard to talk about. There is almost nothing you can say that holds up as a generalization, because it depends on too many factors: size, modulation, the rest of the field, a certain consistency that color has with forms, and the statement you’re trying to make. Roy Lichtenstein

This mystic quality of color should… find expression in a work of art. Hans Hofmann

Color is uncontainable. It effortlessly reveals the limits of language and evades our best attempts to impose a rational order on it… To work with color is to become acutely aware of the insufficiency of language and theory – which is both disturbing and pleasurable. David Batchelor

I’ve found a rainbow, rainbow, baby / Trust me, I know, life is scary / But just put those colors on, girl / Come and play along with me tonight. Kesha

The ones who are crazy enough to think they can color the world are the ones who do. Steve Jobs

Think colour! Know how to imagine it! Gustave Moreau

Color is one of the most marvelous aspects of our existence. Even if one possesses a basic scientific understanding of the phenomenon of color perception–rooted in the absorption and reflection of impartial light waves as they meet objects and environments in the real world, striking the human retina by chance, subsequently setting off a chain of neural excitation–the experience of color loses none of its visceral nature, its emotional power, its potential for fascination. SADAO HIBI

The colors live a remarkable life of their own after they have been applied to the canvas. Edvard Munch

Color is like cooking. The cook puts in more or less salt, that’s the difference! Josef Albers

Color is like dynamite: It must be handled carefully. If used thoughtfully, color will clarify and reveal your designs’ forms and internal meanings. If used carelessly, it will undermine and collapse the design composition by diverting the visitor’s eye and fracture the underlying harmony of form and pattern. ANN LATHAM CUDWORTH

I’d rather see the world as a rainbow than the endless shade of gray. Amani Abbas

Every sacrifice is a color in your rainbow! Cass Van Krah

The dark background which death supplies brings out the tender colors of life in all their purity. GEORGE SANTAYANA

I believe I have already suggested that color is the most obvious bridge between emotion and perception, that is, between the subjective experience of the psyche and quality objective in nature. Both light up only between the extremes of light and darkness, and in their reciprocal interplay. Thus, outward the rainbow—or, if you prefer it, the spectrum—is the bridge between dark and light, but inwardly the rainbow is, what the soul itself is, the bridge between body and spirit, between earth and heaven. Owen Barfield

Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colors; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow. Kahlil Gibran
