A Quote by Markus Zusak on colors, day, notice, and details

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. Murky darkness. In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on time, greatness, and details

The extent to which we live from day to day, from week to week, intent on details and oblivious to larger presences, is a gauge of our impoverishment in time.

A Quote by David DeAngelo on women, details, notice, and assumptions

Women notice details that most men don't. They notice if your belt and shoes match. They notice what kinds of foods you like to eat. They notice all the details, then make assumptions about every other area of your life based on these details.

A Quote by Stephen King on truth, devil, details, seeing, and art

Remember that the truth is in the details.  No matter how you see the world or what style it imposes on your work as an artist, the truth is in the details.  Of course the devil's there, too--everyone says so--but maybe truth and the devil are words for the same thing.  It could be you know.  

Stephen King (1947 -)

A Quote by Kakuzo Okakura on teaism, life, appreciation, humbleness, details, japan, and spirit

For life is an expression, our unconscious actions the constant betrayal of our innermost thought. Perhaps we reveal ourselves too much in small things because we have so little of the great to conceal. The tiny incidents of daily rouitine are as much a commentary of racial ideas as the highest flight of philosophy or poetry.
