Mere colour, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to a soul in a thousand different ways.
~ Oscar Wilde
The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most.
~ John Ruskin
The human being is played upon by various influences at various stages of his life in the body. We all know what climate and music will do to create different moods, but one factor often not understood or neglected is the influence of colour. It is always there in our surroundings, in a room, apartment, or house, in our clothing and in our furnishings. It can contribute towards health or take away from it; it can cheer up or depress the emotions; it can invigorate or devitalize the body; it can give pleasure to the eyes or irritate them.
~ Paul Brunton
