true colors

painter's palette with each different color in the shape of crossNovember 12, 2015

People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and endings, 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. -Markus Zusak

Your mind will be like its habitual thoughts; for the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. Soak it then in such trains of thoughts as, for example: Where life is possible at all, a right life is possible. -Marcus Aurelius

What skillful [painter] e’er would choose
To paint the rainbow’s varying hues,
Unless to mortal it were given
To dip his brush in dyes of heaven?

-Walter Scott

Like the rainbow, peace rests upon the earth, but its arch is lost in heaven. -Charles Caleb Colton
