    Every philosophy is tinged with the colouring of some secret imaginative background, which never emerges explicitly into its train of reasoning.
    Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947)

    Is lovely yet;

    Do take a sober colouring from an eye
    That hath kept watch o’er man’s mortality;
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
