Surely the day will come when color means nothing more than the skin tone, when religion is seen uniquely as a way to speak one's soul, when birth places have the weight of a throw of the dice and all men are born free, when understanding breeds love and brotherhood.
Where lipstick is concerned, the important thing is not color, but to accept God's final word on where your lips end.
Each color lives by its mysterious life.
I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.
I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
We Negro writers, just by being black, have been on the blacklist all our lives. Censorship for us begins at the color line.
I remember opening my dad's closet and there were, like, 40 suits, every color of the rainbow, plaid and winter and summer. He had two jewelry boxes full of watches and lighters and cuff links. And just... he was that guy. He was probably unfulfilled in his life in many ways.
Red certainly is the family color. From my mother and my grandmother, I've learned a lot of little tricks - the significance of color and lipstick being one of them. I started skating when I was eight years old, and my mom did my makeup for me back then.

I get my highlights touched up with Susan Henry at Shades in Beverly Hills.

She does balayage instead of the foils, and I'll go and she will do my entire head of highlights in an hour.
If any man claims the Negro should be content... let him say he would willingly change the color of his skin and go to live in the Negro section of a large city. Then and only then has he a right to such a claim.
A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged; it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and time in which it is used.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
I am trying to show the world that we are all human beings and that color is not important. What is important is the quality of our work.
It is the eye of ignorance that assigns a fixed and unchangeable color to every object; beware of this stumbling block.
In baseball, democracy shines its clearest. The only race that matters is the race to the bag. The creed is the rule book. And color, merely something to distinguish one team's uniform from another's.
What I love about the stories of the Great Migration is that this is not ancient history; this is living history. Most people of color can find someone in their own family who had experienced a migration of some kind, knowing the sense of dislocation, longing and fortitude.
I love the color pink. It makes a bold statement.
An unfulfilled vocation drains the color from a man's entire existence.
Honore de Balzac
When I grew up, what was interesting for me was that music was color and life was gray. So music for me has always been more than entertainment.
You've got to realize. In the western world, regardless of what color you are, what title the music is, it's all played by the same notes.
There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.
I prefer living in color.
A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.
