Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones, it will always be blue; whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened.. red when darkened becomes brown and diluted with white is no longer red, but another color: pink.
- Raoul Dufy
As a picture painted in yellow always radiates spiritual warmth, one in blue has an apparently cooling effect.
The Mediterranean has the color of mackerel, changeable I mean. You don't always know if it is green or violet, you can't even say it's blue because the next moment the changing reflection has taken on a tint of rose or grey.
- Vincent Van Gogh
If the sight of blue sky fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand; rejoice.. for your soul is alive.
- Eleonora Duse
Blue is the overwhelming favourite color. Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. The color of the ocean and the sky, blue is perceived as the constant in our lives. As the collective color for the spirit, it invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming. Electric or brilliant blues are dramatic and dynamic; engaging shades that express exhilaration. Indigo blue symbolizes a mystical borderland of wisdom, self-mastery and spiritual realization.
People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is to walk on earth. Everyday we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child, our own two eyes; all is a miracle.
- Thich Nhat Hanh
She glanced upwards for a second at the soft blue vault of the midsummer night sky. Not a cloud misted its solemn depths. Tomorrow would be a beautiful day.
- Stella Gibbons
The blue in the summer makes me happy and I'm so renewed that all the nature seems renewed around me and with me. The sky seems to be pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green. The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet.
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirit of trees and for the blue dream of sky, and for everything which is natural, which is infinite. The touch of an infinite mystery passes over the trivial and the familiar, making it break out into ineffable music. The trees, the stars and the blue hills ache with a meaning which can never be uttered in words.
