Famous quotes containing the words color and/or egg:

    Painting seems to be to the eye what dancing is to the limbs. When that has educated the frame to self-possession, to nimbleness, to grace, the steps of the dancing-master are better forgotten; so painting teaches me the splendor of color and the expression of form, and as I see many pictures and higher genius in the art, I see the boundless opulence of the pencil, the indifferency in which the artist stands free to choose out of the possible forms.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If there was one egg in it there were nine,
    Torpedo-like, with shell of gritty leather,
    All packed in sand to wait the trump together.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
