A Quote by Wendell Lewis Wilkie on agreement, colors, freedom, and preparation

Freedom is an indivisible word. If we want to enjoy it, and fight for it, we must be prepared to extend it or everyone, whether they are rich or poor, whether they agree with us or not, no matter what their race or the color of their skin.

Wendell Lewis Wilkie (1892 - 1944)

A Quote by Walt Whitman on colors, heart, love, and miracles

In the dooryard fronting an old farm-house near the white-wash'd palings, Stands the lilac-bush tall-growing with heart-shaped leaves of rich green, with many a pointed blossom rising delicate, with the perfume strong I love, With every leaf a miracle - and from this bush in the dooryard, With delicate-color'd blossoms and heart-shaped leaves of rich green, A sprig with its flower I break.

A Quote by Walt Whitman on colors and love

Love-buds, put before you and within you, whoever you are, Buds to be unfolded on the old terms; If you bring the warmth of the sun to them, they will open, and bring form, color, perfume, to you; If you become the aliment and the wet, they will become flowers, fruits, tall blanches and trees.

A Quote by Vincent Canby on colors and magic

Through the magic of motion pictures, someone who's never left Peoria knows the softness of a Paris spring, the color of a Nile sunset, the sorts of vegetation one will find along the upper Amazon and that Big Ben has not yet gone digital.

A Quote by Victoria Claflin Woodhull on citizenship, colors, government, people, and sex

The will of the entire people is the true basis of republican government, and a free expression . . . by the public vote of all citizens, without distinctions of race, color, occupation, or sex, is the only means by which that will can be ascertained.

A Quote by unknown on beauty, colors, friendship, justice, kindness, and men

"A man sees just what he is looking for," said an old friend, "and he sees only that degree of beauty." A man is like a camera. One man may see something with all the vivid depth and color, while another may view the same object as only shadowy blacks-and-whites. Both men have the same kind of eyes; but it is what is behind those eyes, even as one camera lens has colored film behind it, that really counts.

A Quote by unknown on colors and lies

It is the color of light, the shape of sound, high in the evergreens. It lies suspended in hills, a blue line in a red sky. I am looking at sound.
