I Think Before

I like to write about painting because I think visually. I see my writing as blocks of color before it forms itself. I think I also care about painting because I'm not musical. Painting to me is not a metaphor for writing, but something people do that can never be reduced to words.

- A. S. Byatt

Love Concept

Color always vexed me because I would fight with the media I was using. I love coloring in Photoshop, and it's freed me to pursue ideas and techniques I wouldn't have otherwise attempted.

- Adam Hughes

Like Based

Can anything good come of a backward way of thinking like judging someone based on skin color? No way.

- Alber Elbaz

Doing Eliminated

I've tried doing so, for it was never my intention to paint only with gray. But in the course of my work I have eliminated one color after another, and what has remained is gray, gray, gray!

About Terms

I don't even know where to start in terms of people having such an issue about color, especially being dark. I just think on different levels it's ignorance; it's no belief, no confidence, it's insecurity, so you want to inflict it on somebody else.

- Alek Wek

Big However

You need to be naive enough to do things differently. No big publishing house would have allowed us to co-create a fully designed, four color business book in landscape format - because it was contrary to the publishing industry logic. However, we thought of Business Model Generation as a product, not just a book - similar to Apple products.

- Alexander Osterwalder

City Before

When you seek out - or seek to avoid - your own reflection, the modern city becomes a hall of mirrors: car windows, reflective walls, and plate glass are everywhere, transmitting a cacophony of different versions of you - this one too short, that one too wide, another one with a sickly color you've never seen before.

- Alexandra Kleeman

- Alexandra Stoddard

Magic Rather

The funny thing is, when I ask people with dark skin if they would change their color, they tell me no, and when I ask women if they would rather be men, they tell me no, and I get the same response when I ask people with unusual anatomies if they would take a magic pill to erase their unusual features.

- Alice Dreger

Living Implicit

The true color of life is the color of the body, the color of the covered red, the implicit and not explicit red of the living heart and the pulses. It is the modest color of the unpublished blood.

- Amanda Hearst

Love About

I really love Beyonce. I like to look to her because we look similar; we have similar features about ourselves. So whenever I see that she's using a new product, or a new hair color, I like to look at her. because I know that if it looks good on her, it's something that I could try.

- Amber Stevens

Shadow Willing

Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there's shadow - no, not just shadow, but fullness. You've got to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that's real.

Act Itself

Being born, especially being born a person of color, is a political act in itself.

I Think Skin Color

It may be a task that's so Herculean, but I think it's a worthy goal to try to open up America to individuals who just so happen to have a different skin color, that they have every right and every freedom to think what they want to think.

- Andrew Breitbart

Racism Goal

I have no bigger goal than to eradicate racism, to grant Americans who have a different color of skin the right to disagree against the Left's style of orthodoxy.

- Andrew Breitbart

Wait Been

I have a Viking stove. The color is butter lemon, and I had to wait several months for it, because that color wasn't available and I really wanted butter lemon! But I don't know that it's seriously ever been cooked on. I mean, I make tea every morning. Does that count?

- Angus Young

Myself Made

I don't regard myself as a soloist. It's a color; I put it in for excitement. It's not great loss if a solo has to go. We've made songs without solos.

- Anika Noni Rose

Honey Correct

I finally realized the happy medium, 'honey blonde' was the correct color and line for me.

- Ann Sothern

Needed Had

There's room for everyone, and everyone is wanted and needed. Whoopi showed me that. When I first saw 'The Color Purple,' it was so huge. That was the first time I had seen myself, my mother, my aunts, women that I had known my whole life on-screen. It gives us hope, and it gives us confidence.

- Anna Diop

Big Lip

I'm not big on lip color, but I like to have a little something.

- Anna Kendrick

Love About

There isn't any one material that's mine. It all depends on the context. For example, I did a house that had the most exquisite marble applications.

- Annabelle Selldorf

Nigeria Issue

Skin Color Against

I used to be homophobic, but as I got older, I realized that wasn't the way to do things. I don't discriminate against anybody for their sexual preference, for their skin color... that's immature.

Making Films

Making my first record, I was really inspired by all the color palettes Sofia Coppola has in her films.

Knew Answers

When I was little, people would ask what my favorite color was, and I never knew. I find it's really hard to make decisive 'best' answers on what the 'best' of something is.

- Chelsea Peretti

Small Couple

From when I was a really small girl on, I would pick every fabric, every color on the walls, and I was always redecorating. Like once every couple of months I would redecorate my room. I had a full wall that was all collage - the entire wall - when I was in junior high. And then it would kind of morph with me as I was growing.

- Chloe Sevigny

Everyone Like

I feel like everyone should dye their hair a weird color. If you hate it, you can just dye it back.

- Chris Benz

Skin Skin Color

I grew up feeling people didn't look at skin color.

- Chris Froome

Play Works

When I present the Charlie Parker book, I do a call and response that works quite well. With the Thelonious Monk book, I play the music and work with kids in a group to create a color wheel and show how the wheel can be mapped on a 12-tone chromatic scale.

- Chris Raschka

Sports Tan

When we do 'Sports Illustrated,' it starts the night before. You do a St. Tropez tan that night, then baby oil gel, then body color.

- Chrissy Teigen

Industry Part

Working in a salon, you look at trends all day long. You're looking at color all the time, what new products are coming out. You're a part of the fashion industry, especially if you're working in a higher-end salon.

- Christian Siriano

Love I Love

I love color - I'm not a beige kind of girl.

- Christina Aguilera

Need Use

I use Redken color on my hair and use mild shampoos that don't strip your hair of color. If I need to, I'll use a good colored mousse in between.

- Christina Hendricks

Run Exception

Fault lines run along color lines in American public life, and the women's movement is no exception. Over the years, feminism has become more inclusive but there is still hard work to be done to include LGBT women and communities of color.

- Christine Pelosi

About Orientation

When we talk about feminism - equality without apology for all - we can't be talking about for all white women or all highly educated women but all women, regardless of color, class, creed, sexual orientation or identity.

- Christine Pelosi

Woman Very

My spray-tan woman is amazing. She comes to my house at 10 o'clock the night before a shoot. The results are so brown, flawless, and natural. It's just weird because my natural skin color is very white, almost whitish yellow.

- Christine Teigen

Harmony Functional

I believe that all centers that appear in space - whether they originate in biology, in physical forces, in pure geometry, in color - are alike simply in that they all animate space. It is this animated space that has its functional effect upon the world, that determines the way things work, that governs the presence of harmony and life.

- Christopher Alexander

Some Telling

When you're telling stories, you are actually trying to illuminate some portion of the truth in an artful way. The story may immediately seem to be a lie, but it's like an impressionistic painting - you see the light and the color better than you would with a photo-realistic piece.

- Christopher Moore

Ethnic Records

I made records for people who would buy them. No color, no ethnic, no political - I don't want that, never did.

- Chuck Berry

Take Eight

The first thing I do is take Polaroids of the sitter - 10 or 12 color Polaroids and eight or 10 black-and whites.

- Chuck Close

Some Other

I did some pastels and I did other pieces in which there was just basically one color per square, and then they would get bigger and I could get 2 or 3 colors into the square, and ultimately I just started making oil paintings.

- Chuck Close

Confused Should

Fog and smog should not be confused and are easily separated by color.

- Chuck Jones

Nation Skin Color

Forget the historic nature of his election having to do with skin color - Obama has an opportunity offered to few presidents: the chance to set the course of the nation for decades, if not generations, to come. Who knows: perhaps in the near future, our grandchildren will spend money with Obama's face on it.

- Chuck Todd

Happen Atrocities

Atrocities are human nature - they don't have political beliefs, color, creed or anything like that. They just happen, it's human.

- Clancy Brown

Some Very

Some colors are very difficult to render, and you must compensate to get the color you want on the screen.

- Claude Chabrol

Use About

There's one thing which I hate about color films... people who use up a lot of their despairing producer's money by working in the laboratory to bring out the dominant hues, or to make color films where there isn't any color.

- Claude Chabrol

Pink Here

Try to forget what objects you have before you - a tree, a house, a field, or whatever. Merely think, 'Here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow,' and paint it just as it looks to you, the exact color and shape, until it gives you your own impression of the scene before you.

- Claude Monet

Art Torment

Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.

- Claude Monet

Like Superb

I am installed in a fairylike place. I do not know where to poke my head; everything is superb, and I would like to do everything, so I use up and squander lots of color, for there are trials to be made.

- Claude Monet
