Debussy–A pretty girl with one blue eye and one brown one.
H. L. Mencken
In Jiu-Jitsu, every instinct you have wants to do everything but relax or breathe when someone’s attacking you, and learning that takes a long time. I think that’s why a lot of people stop at blue belt because it’s really hard to do. It’s hard to take that next step. It took me a long time.
Clark Gregg
The coaches hate each other, the players hate each other… There’s no calling each other after the game and inviting each other out to dinner. But the feeling’s mutual: They don’t like us, and we don’t like them. There’s no need to hide it, they know it, and we know it. It’s going to be one of those black and blue games.
Hines Ward

For like everyday, just kind of hanging out, I love flannels. Part of my closet, there’s a whole section of flannels because I love them so much. Slouchy, oversized hats and fedoras. I just got these 2 amazing hats that I really love, blue and gold trim with woven material by D&Y. I love D&Y hats.
Nina Dobrev
How do you see those tree?… They are yellow. Well then put down yellow. And that shadow is rather blue. So render it with pure ultramarine. Those red leaves? Use vermillion.
Paul Gauguin

Kary Mullis

Thomas Carlyle
Growing up in the ’80s in central New Jersey as a weird kid with a blue mohawk listening to the Sex Pistols and dressing really funky, I was bullied pretty badly.

Steve Burns
Junior high is so much worse than high school because at least in high school different is more accepted, celebrated actually: all the girls with blue hair and gothic Hello Kitty backpacks.
Nikki Reed
The Replacements are the foundation for a lot of what came after in alternative and college rock. Let It Be is their best record and has the most diverse collection of songs. Some pop stuff, some heavy stuff, and some real moments of beauty like ‘Sixteen Blue’ and ‘Androgynous.’ It’s a record I always go back to.
Craig Finn
He stepped back and threw his arms out. “I’m always crazy around you Rose. Here, I’m going to write an impromptu poem for you.” He tipped his head back and shouted to the sky: “Rose is in red But never in blue Sharp as a thorn Fights like one too.

blue bead on the wick,

Catherynne M. Valente
You know, I’m the only one in this family who has no problems, . . . And you know why? Because any time I’m feeling blue, or puzzled , what I do, I just invite a few people to come visit me in the bathroom, and–well, we iron things out together, that’s all.
J. D. Salinger
For me, ‘Lamb’ started out as a further exploration of the phenomenon of faith and the responsibility of a messiah that I touched on in ‘Coyote Blue’ and ‘Island of the Sequined Love Nun,’ but it ended up being an exploration of the true meaning of sacrifice, loyalty, and friendship.
Christopher Moore
He found a stuffed animal, a fluffy wolf with bright blue eyes, and was immediately drawn to it. “I want to get this for her. It is telling me it needs to go home with us.” Francesca laughed at him.

Phil McGraw
And one of the funnest things was watching what they did before the director called action and after the director called cut. And they’d keep their hands in the puppets, they’d stay in character, and then they’d start goofing around with each other and be off of script, and it would get quite blue.
Brian Henson

Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
The very clouds move on.

Evan Hunter
Starry Starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer’s day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul
Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land.
Don McLean
I did a lot of blue collar work. I also worked as a temp. I did, you know, light construction and cleaning. I did clerical temping. I also fix cars and motorcycles and electronics.
David Autor
So the Clinton-Gore era culminates with an election as stained as the blue dress, a Democratic chorus complaining that the Constitution should not be the controlling legal authority, and Clinton’s understudy dispatching lawyers to litigate this: It depends on what the meaning of ‘vote’ is.
George Will
I have a suggestion for all of those award seekers and blue ribbon hunters. Spend your efforts on making art that connects with people. Awards impress the grandkids but they don’t move the gauge on selling your product. Art needs to touch the emotions of the buyer.
Jack White
It wasn’t until I did a musical revue in Paris in the 1980s called ‘Black and Blue,’ and met the great men and women responsible for the progress of tap dance, that my relationship with the dance really began.
Savion Glover
I was really into punk. I was 11 years old; I had a blue mohican.

I hold a vision of this blue green planet, safe and in balance. At the end of the Fossil Fuel Era, we are emerging to a new reality. We are ready to make the next leap – as momentous as abolishing slavery or giving women the vote.
Elizabeth May
I think one of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received was when a young kid came backstage at Joe’s Pub, when I had the “Bronx In Blue” album out. He said, “What Jimmy Reed did for you, you do for me.”
Dion DiMucci
All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.
Abraham Lincoln
I first met my husband on the day we got married, when I was 20. I moved to be with him in Leeds, 165 miles from Luton. The kitchen was absolutely tiny. But I got my first hand-held mixer and first set of scales and first blue cake tin from Tesco and that was very exciting.
Nadiya Hussain
Truth is felt in the heart. This is why your heart should always be your ultimate temple. Sitting inside on a blue altar, is you’re where you find your conscience. This is where all conversations with God stream.
Suzy Kassem
Four ducks on a pond, / A grass-bank beyond, / A blue sky of spring, / White clouds on the wing: / What a little thing / To remember for years – / To remember with tears!.
William Allingham
Today I am
a small blue thing
Like a marble
or an eye
Suzanne Vega
Another thing that you really do when you play, that you’re supposed to do, is colors. You know, you cannot play with one color. If you play with one color, again, it’s like watching a beautiful painting, a drawing, but it’s all in blue or it’s all in red. May be very nice, but not very interesting.
Itzhak Perlman
The Weezer ‘Blue’ Album is a classic. I think My Morning Jacket’s ‘Circuital’ is a great album to have. Any Led Zeppelin album. Pink Floyd ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ or ‘Animals.’ I always catch myself at concerts being like, ‘Oh, I just stared at the drummer for 15 straight minutes.’ I study them.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Foods that are deep blue, purple, red, green, or orange are leaders in antioxidants and contain many nutrients that boost immunity and enhance health.
Deepak Chopra
I like the idea of teaching kids how to lose. That’s a really important lesson in life. I don’t like the idea of doing leadline where everyone gets a blue ribbon. I think it’s unrealistic for kids and teaches the wrong lesson.
Georgina Bloomberg
President Bartlet: There’s a delegation of cardiologists having their pictures taken in the Blue Room. You wouldn’t think you could find a group of people more arrogant than the fifteen of us, but there they are, right upstairs in the Blue Room.
Aaron Sorkin
[I have] a heavenly vase full of autumn leaves today. They look so beautiful. How much closer to God can one get? And a beautiful blue heron flew over the brook. Nature can make me cry faster than anything.

Blue oblivion, largely lit, smiled and smiled at me.
William Rose Benet

Sandra Lerner
People thought me a bit strange at first; a blond haired, blue-eyed Norwegian who sang Mexican folk songs, but I used it to my advantage and got a job. And so the music became my ticket to education.
David Soul
Look at the bow in the cloud, in the very rain itself. That is a sign that the sun, though you cannot see it, is shining still — that up above beyond the cloud is still sunlight and warmth and cloudless blue sky.
Charles Kingsley
You can talk about systems until you’re blue in the face but that’s secondary – if you’re closing down, if you’re first to the ball, it doesn’t really matter what system you’ve got.
Graeme Souness
If you look at ‘Gnomeo & Juliet,’ the movie’s message essentially says it doesn’t matter if you’re a ‘red’ or a ‘blue’: at the end of the day, parents should love their children and want what’s best for them.
David Furnish

CM Punk
You’re my North Star when I’m lost and feeling blue.
Tom Waits
The Earth was small, light blue, and so touchingly alone, our home that must be defended like a holy relic. The Earth was absolutely round. I believe I never knew what the word round meant until I saw Earth from space.
Alexey Leonov
Goddam money. It always ends up making you blue as hell.
J. D. Salinger
I saw in a blue haze all the world poured flat and pale between the mountains
Annie Dillard
Blue skies Smiling at me Nothing but blue skies Do I see Bluebirds Singing a song Nothing but bluebirds All day long
Irving Berlin
I know there’s similar dissatisfaction in America. There’s a lot of white people who come from blue collar backgrounds and who feel ill-equipped and badly served by modern economics and the modern job market.
Dylan Moran
But who knows what good might come from the least of us? From the bones of old horses is made the most beautiful Prussian Blue.
Joy Williams
If we look on idly, heaven and earth will never be joined. To join heaven and earth, some decisive deed of purity is necessary. To accomplish so resolute an action, you have to stake your life, giving no thought to personal gain or loss.
Yukio Mishima
I’ll never forget during the ‘Descendants’ parade at Disneyland when I waved at a girl with bright blue hair and witnessed her dream being realized and the involuntary tears that followed.
Cameron Boyce
The actual Blue Rose murders, which lie at the core of the three novels, yield various incorrect solutions which assume the status of truth.
Peter Straub
I live on a farm in Dorset. The nearest neighbour is a quarter of a mile away. It’s really quiet, with an amazing view – can’t see a pylon, can’t see a road. Blockbuster’s an event in our house, when the little blue envelope comes in.
Martin Clunes
When I was born, my father was a copper miner in Butte, Montana. It was a hard-core, blue-collar situation.
Barbara Ehrenreich
I’m nostalgic for the future I knew as a kid. Back then, it was a lovely, bleepy, heavenly land populated by svelte men in white polo necks, who would lounge on big white sofas sipping blue wine from big glass globes, beside women like the ones on the covers of Hedkandi chill out compilations.
Peter Baynham
How come they don’t think you can handle a new story out of the blue on the TV news? They gotta make a little lame segue. “Hey, that’s a big lotto jackpot! Speaking of lotto, there was a lot o’ crime in the city today.”
Brian Regan
I was the adoring son of a Welsh-Irish father, a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, a Catholic Knight of Columbus who was a blue-collar, trade union organizer and, not surprisingly, a fervid Nixon-hater.
Bob Gunton
Fragile creatures of a small blue planet, surrounded by light years of silent space.
Jeanette Winterson
I slept in black tents, blue tents, skin tents, yurts of felt and windbreaks of thorns. One night, caught in a sandstorm in the Western Sahara, I understood Muhammed’s dictum, ‘A journey is a fragment of Hell.’
Bruce Chatwin
I suppose [my life] has most resembled a blue chip stock: fairly stable, more ups than downs, and gradually trending upward over time. A good buy, a lucky buy, and I’ve learned that not everyone can say that about his life.
Nicholas Sparks
I bleed Dodger blue!
Tommy Lasorda
I think if I’d never had found pro wrestling, I’d be a blue collar guy, working a 9-to-5 job.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
My eyes went blank, and I stared off, and the music started. It was raining, and the sun was shining at the same time, and there were these big bay windows, and there was the blue in the sky, and the sun on the trees, and it was drizzling.
Al Jarreau
I was starting to become impotent through this diet and couldn’t perform. How many people who are taking the little blue pill, if they started to change what they are eating most of the time, could change the way their sex life is?
Morgan Spurlock
Don’t turn blue all over now.
Amish Tripathi
I was by far the least popular of the Blue Collar crew when we started. There was a definite pecking order, and everybody knew it.

Justine Skye
We worship an awesome God in the Blue States, and we don’t like federal agents poking around our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and have gay friends in the Red States.
Barack Obama
I think swag is very important to rappers. It’s the overall appearance and style of an artist – these blue shorts and this blue hat and this $80,000 chain, this jewelry and all these tattoos, that’s swag.
Soulja Boy
Biographers, the quick in pursuit of the dead, research, organize, fill in, contradict, and make in this way a sort of completed picture puzzle with all the scramble turned into a blue eye and the parts of the right leg fitted together.
Elizabeth Hardwick
I have a great plain blue shirt from APC, and a denim one from Dolce that I wear constantly. It’s hard to find the perfect denim shirt, but this is it.
Felicity Jones
‘Gathering Blue’ was a separate book. I wanted to explore what a society might become after a catastrophic world event. Only at the end did I realize I could make it connect to ‘The Giver.’
Lois Lowry
Some calamities – the 1929 stock market crash, Pearl Harbor, 9/11 – have come like summer lightning, as bolts from the blue. The looming crisis of America’s Ponzi entitlement structure is different. Driven by the demographics of an aging population, its causes, timing and scope are known.
George Will
Poetry is a theorem of a yellow-silk handkerchief knotted with riddles, sealed in a balloon tied to the tail of a kite flying in a white wind against a blue sky in spring.
Carl Sandburg
Reach me a gentian, give me a torch! Let me guide myself with the blue, forked torch of a flower down the darker and darker stairs, where blue is darkened on blueness even where Persephone goes, just now, from the frosted September to the sightless realm where darkness is awake upon the dark.
D. H. Lawrence
I speak with a Northern Irish accent with a tinge of New York. My wife has a bit of a Boston accent; my oldest daughter talks with a Denver accent, and my youngest has a true blue Aussie accent. It’s complicated.
Adrian McKinty
Blue is the only color that maintains its own character in all its tones…it will always stay blue.
Raoul Dufy
I’ve built my wardrobe color palette around red, so I’m happy with it, but I do get pangs when I see beautiful brunettes. I’ve already been blue, green, black, and blonde.

Jesse Jackson
Now are the woods all black, But still the sky is blue.
Marcel Proust
I’m going to always bleed the red, white, and blue. I represented the U.S. in the Olympics; I love my country. But the U.S. fans will love you on Monday; if you lose, they’ll hate you on Tuesday. If you win, it will be back to loving you on Wednesday.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
I don’t use Facebook or Twitter, and I email once in a blue moon, as I’m a rather slow typist and prefer to pick up the phone and hear a voice.
June Whitfield

Rebecca Harding Davis
The Egyptian FA have tried to persuade me to play for them, but all I’m dreaming about is the blue jersey.
Stephan El Shaarawy
My first concert – maybe it was 1979 – was a blur. I’m not sure whether it was Blue Oyster Cult/Cheap Trick/Pat Travers at San Jose Civic Auditorium or The Police/The Knack/Robert Johnson at Berkeley’s Zellerbach Auditorium.
Greg Gutfeld
Sometimes on my show, I just play something out of the blue, and the band picks up on it.
Trombone Shorty
I would that we were, my beloved, white birds on the foam of the sea!
We tire of the flame of the meteor, before it can fadeand flee;
And the flame of the blue star of twilight, hung low on the rim of the sky,
Has awaked in our hearts, my beloved, a sadness that may not die.
William Butler Yeats
The blue states we were able to turn red and basically haven’t been red since Ronald Reagan. I think ObamaCare was the bigger hit.
Rudy Giuliani
Blues is a tonic for whatever ails you. I could play the blues and then not be blue anymore.
B. B. King
To me acting is like a jigsaw puzzle. The jigsaw puzzle is of the sky and all the pieces are blue. Out of this you have to create a human being and put it together.
Henry Winkler
If a little kid ever asks you just why the sky is blue, you look him or her right in the eye and say, ‘It’s because of quantum effects involving Rayleigh scattering combined with a lack of violet photon receptors in our retinae.’
Phil Plait
The fact was, by the time she got to high school, being weird and proud of it was an asset. Suddenly cool, Blue could’ve happily had any number of friends. And she had tried. But the problem with being weird was that everyone else was ‘normal'”.
Maggie Stiefvater
We certainly grew up and had opportunities. But it’s not like our parents are aristocratic blue bloods.
Cameron Winklevoss
Life is a thing that mutates without warning, not always in enviable ways. All part of the improbable adventure of being alive, of being a brainy biped with giant dreams on a crazy blue planet.
Diane Ackerman
I’ve always leaned toward a feminine, funky style, even in business settings. I used to paint my nails blue in 1993, before it was mainstream.
Sara Blakely
You don’t love someone because they’re perfect,” she says. “You love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.” I don’t know how to respond to that; it’s like being told after thirty-five years that the sky, which I’ve seen as a brilliant blue, is in fact rather green.
Jodi Picoult
Hold still,” my father would say, while I held the ship in the bottle and he burned away the strings he’d raised the mast with and set the clipper ship free on its blue putty sea. And I would wait for him, recognizing the tension of that moment when the world in the bottle depended, solely, on me.
Alice Sebold
I’ll always wear NAPA blue. I’m thankful they were a part of my life.
Michael Waltrip
His eyes were open wounds beneath his heavy brows, a blue as dark as the sea by night.
George R. R. Martin
I have felt a presence that disturbs me with the joy of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime of something far more deeply interfused, whose dwelling is the light of setting suns, and the round ocean, and the living air, and the blue sky, and in the mind of man.
William Wordsworth
More than anything else, my mother wanted to be an actress – a famous actress – which in the 1950s was all about being young, sexy, and available. She was all that, and more. She had big blue eyes, alabaster skin, a heart-shaped face, a beautiful figure. She was just a knockout.
Meredith Baxter
There is ‘a time to be born’ – and born again, free of accumulated, encrusted sores of fears and prejudices, old hates, of cancerous wounds, old prides. And there is a time to die – a time for the blue, unburied child of our young years to be decently interred – and to get on with the living.
Josephine Winslow Johnson
I’ve seen some glaciers in the world which have been, which are just turquoise blue blue glaciers up in the Arctic. It’s tragic to think that because of climate change, because of man’s actions, they’re melting away.
Lewis Pugh
If you want to slice into America, it’s pretty red, white, and blue in terms of how it goes about things, but there’s a gray area there, and I’ve always been interested in where things are complicated.
Robert Redford
Every book should begin with attractive endpapers. Preferably in a dark colour: dark red or dark blue, depending on the binding. When you open the book it’s like going to the theatre. First you see the curtain. Then it’s pulled aside and the show begins.
Cornelia Funke
America needs football. It’s a real blue-collar sport; it’s played with a blue-collar mentality, a mentality that’s the backbone of this country.
Troy Polamalu
I got sent to a health camp when I was about 6 years old, and we all had to wear the same starchy blue uniform. The lady who took care of me after school knit me a burgundy sweater. It was the only thing that gave me any individuality.
Barbra Streisand
I do probably come down a little hard on a group of people I call the ‘blue chip gays.’ I mean people who have managed to become very, very famous and are still very famous partly through staying in the closet, like Jasper Johns, Cy Twombly, Susan Sontag, Harold Brodkey and others.
Edmund White
If I a fancy take
To black and blue,
That fancy doth it beauty make.
John Suckling
The Tea Party definitely scored a significant victory with Senator Cruz’s election in 2012 and scored victories in some statewide primaries. But to me, as the Tea Party gets stronger within the Republican Party in Texas, the prospect of a blue Texas becomes stronger and stronger.
Julian Castro
The thing that makes Lexington so interesting is that it’s a mash-up between blue blood and bohemian.
Jim Gray
And, for an instant, she stared directly into those soft blue eyes and knew, with an instinctive mammalian certainty, that the exceedingly rich were no longer even remotely human.
William Gibson
The shoot-and-chase approach had become big in hockey. Teams would come up to the blue line and shoot the puck around our boards deep in our zone, then swarm in after it forechecking, trying to regain possession.
Jacques Plante
The sky is blue today, Max, and there is a big long cloud, and it’s stretched out, like a rope. At the end of it, the sun is like a yellow hole. . .
Markus Zusak
I’m not a fan of what we call ‘friendly fire’ or ‘blue on blue.’ We don’t want to have that.
Tommy Franks
I live in a blue-collar neighborhood, and if anyone knows what I do for a living, they don’t seem to care.
George Pelecanos
Wait, I want more green. I hope I did not imply I only wanted your colors. We can’t turn a cold shoulder to green, and blue, and purple, for the sake of all ordered things, how can you dismiss purple? Celi, call Nom back and tell him of my need for purple!
Shannon Hale
We had no revolutions to fear, nor fatigues to undergo; all our adventures were by the fireside, and all our migrations from the blue bed to the brown.
Oliver Goldsmith
It’s not your blue blood, your pedigree or your college degree. It’s what you do with your life that counts.
Millard Fuller
At these times, the things that troubled her seemed far away and unimportant: all that mattered was the hum of the bees and the chirp of birdsong, the way the sun gleamed on the edge of a blue wildflower, the distant bleat and clink of grazing goats.
Alison Croggon
Over all life broods Poesy, like the calm blue sky with its motherly, rebuking face. She is the great reformer, and where the love of her is strong and healthy, wickedness and wrong cannot long prevail.
James Russell Lowell
Whether my days are cooled with calm or filled with fever’s ardent taint, I have the same blue sky as God, I have the same God as the saint.

I was born under the Blue Ridge, and under that side which is blue in the evening light, in a wild land of game and forest and rushing waters.
Winston Churchill
One fish Two fish Red fish Blue fish!
Dr. Seuss
I have learned the lesson the hard way and I hope it serves as a lesson to lots of other young people. I would also like to apologise to all loyal Blue Peter viewers.

I consider myself a blue-collar actor, just chugging away.
Aaron Stanford
Leo couldn’t help smiling. “That could be fun.” “Fun” she said unhappily. “Blue elephants.” “Blue elephants.” “Kiss me you fool.” “You fool.
Rick Riordan
Almost without exception, blue refers to the domain of abstraction and immateriality.
Wassily Kandinsky
Malcolm X got famous mainly by being hard on white people, white devils, blue-eyed blond-headed dogs.
Muhammad Ali
Maybe it’s because I’m a designer, but when I am in a state of excitement, everything is so sharp and colorful and amazing, and I can look at blue and I see the yellow in it and the green in it, and the green-blues, the yellow-blues, so.
Tom Ford
No bird in a cage ever speaks. What is there to say? The sky is everywhere, churning above its head, blue and endless, calling out to it. But the caged bird can’t answer anything except ‘I cannot’.
Sonya Hartnett
But in fact it makes a lot of sense to have a Blue Lives Matter movement because officers are putting their lives on the line every day.
Heather Mac Donald
The stories that are most unfamiliar, the ones that seem to come out of the blue about people that aren’t well known, usually come from producers that have really done a lot of homework and looked around. Other stories come from the correspondents.
Frank Deford
You only need to walk in mindfulness, making peaceful, happy steps on our planet. Breathe deeply, and enjoy your breathing. Be aware that the sky is blue and the birds’ songs are beautiful. Enjoy being alive and you will help the living Christ and the living Buddha continue for a long, long time.
Nhat Hanh
The evening had turned sweet and blue.
Alice Hoffman
I remember when we had to pick our major freshman year, I chose comparative religion. It came to me out of the blue. I am amazed at how interested I still am in those ideas, especially the way spirituality is expressed in the world and in art.
Amy Brenneman
She had blue skin, And so did he. He kept it hid And so did she. They searched for blue Their whole life through, Then passed right by- And never knew.
Shel Silverstein
Blue Book was now under direct orders to debunk. . . I remember the conversations around the conference table in which it was suggested that Walt Disney or some educational cartoon producer be enlisted in [the] debunking process.
J. Allen Hynek
When I was a boy during Thatcher, you watched elections and wept in disbelief as the whole country turned blue, Scotland turned red, and we still got the Tories.
John Niven
I used to do that routine about my daughter being a hippy with the dirty sneakers and dirty blue jeans, but why a beard? And you know people would actually come to me and say, ‘Does your daughter really have a beard?’ I’d say, ‘No, I made her shave it, but I let her keep the mustache.
Jean Carroll
I used to have this Mercedes, a dark blue 450SLC, which was the most beautiful car. I’d like to have another unusual, beautiful car.
Andrew Davies
The past is buried deep within the ground in Rabat, although the ancient walls in the old city are still standing, painted in electrifying variations of royal blue that make the winding roads look like streamlets or shallow ocean water
Raquel Cepeda
When youre young, the blue blazer feels like a grown-up costume.
Willie Geist
It is June. This is what I have decided to do with my life just now. I will do this work and lead this life, the one I am leading today. Each morning the blue clock and the crocheted bedspread, the table with the Phone, the books and magazines, the Times at the door.
Elizabeth Hardwick
‘Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On’ was my anthem as a child. It was about me. I was Baby.
Carrie Underwood
Once Michigan stood proud. In addition to GM, Ford and Chrysler, it was home base for the United Auto Workers, a powerful escalator transporting hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers into America’s middle class.
Kevin O’Leary
We were not given any statistics as to how many records were pressed on the blue label. I used to ask Bob Shad how we were going to get paid from record sales and what I got for an answer was not to worry about the business end of the deal.
Phil Harris
Even with seemingly simple things like eye color, you can’t tell from my genetic code whether I have blue eyes or not. So it’s naive to think that complex human behaviors, like risk-seeking, are driven by changes in one or two genes.
Craig Venter
I think a lot of people see, obviously, the business side of my father. But, I mean, he’s just a great guy. We enjoyed the holidays so much. To be able to spend time with him when he’s not necessarily working or not doing the political thing, I mean, he’s much more of a blue collar American.
Donald Trump, Jr.
“Tangled Up in Blue,” shifts perspective several times during the song to tell a “tangled” version of [Bob] Dylan’s marriage and dissolution.
Bob Dylan
We lay there and looked up at the night sky and she told me about stars called blue squares and red swirls and I told her I’d never heard of them. Of course not, she said, the really important stuff they never tell you. You have to imagine it on your own.
Brian Andreas
People need to be made conscious of a very simple reality: we have no choice but to share this planet, this small blue sphere floating in the vast reaches of space, with all of our fellow ‘passengers.’
Daisaku Ikeda
There are poems
that are never written,
that simply move across
the mind
like skywriting
on a still day:
slowly the first word
drifts west,
the last letters dissolve
on the tongue,
and what is left
is the pure blue
of insight, without cloud
or comfort.
Linda Pastan
Last week we went to the museum. A whole whale is hanging from the ceiling. Bigger than big! OK, have you seen a Volkswagon car that’s like a bug? Um huh, you know what I’m talking about. That’s how big the heart of a blue whale is. I know it’s not possible, but if that heart was in me, could I love more?…I would like to.
Blue thou art, intensely blue; Flower, whence came thy dazzling hue?
James Montgomery
Don’t get caught up on ‘I’m brown, black, white, red, blue, whatever.’ You gotta ask, what were you called before 1492? All these names we’re using now are just an illusion made to keep us fighting each other.
Afrika Bambaataa
If I had to pick one tribe to go back and live with permanently – and I hate doing this, it’s not a contest – it would be the people of Anuta, in the South Pacific. It’s got white beaches, blue seas, good food and gentle, friendly people who have a wonderful philosophy of sharing. And it’s warm.
Bruce Parry
They are always telling us that Carolina Blue is not a color, that it is really Columbia blue or sky blue. But there is no bad blood amongst the teammates. All of our kidding is in good fun.
Lorrie Fair
My sister, who is a wonderful and beautiful actress now, when she was 11 or 12, she would go out and take pictures of the punk parties in the desert. She used to have blue hair, and she got kicked out of Las Vegas Day School for having blue hair.
Charles Bock
The problem is that television executives have got it into their heads that if one presenter on a show is a blonde-haired, blue-eyed heterosexual boy, the other must be a black Muslim lesbian.
Jeremy Clarkson
Any working composer or painter or sculptor will tell you that inspiration comes at the eighth hour of labour, rather than as a bolt out of the blue. We have to get our vanities and our preconceptions out of the way and do the work in the time allotted.
John Towner Williams
From Blue Valentine I kept my wedding ring. I actually kept it on for a while. After the shooting had stopped, I was still wearing it – I couldn’t quite take it off – and now I keep it above the kitchen sink where I do dishes, as a little memento.
Michelle Williams
I reduced painting to its logical conclusion and exhibited three canvases: red, blue, and yellow. I affirmed: this is the end of painting.
Alexander Rodchenko
Red meat is not really bad for a person. Now, blue-green meat – that’s damaging of you!
Tommy Smothers
I’ve played at Anfield and you can look at The Kop and there are blue pockets all over. It’s another level in Glasgow.
Graeme Souness
Like an army defeated
The snow hath retreated,
And now doth fare ill
On the top of the bare hill;
The Ploughboy is whooping — anon — anon!
There’s joy in the mountains:
There’s life in the fountains;
Small clouds are sailing,
Blue sky prevailing;
The rain is over and gone.
William Wordsworth
My dream date is a tall, dark, handsome, blue eyed man with a bubble butt who will whisk me away to Paris in a hot air balloon to wine me, dine me and.
Karen McDougal
Something happens, Blue thinks, and then it goes on happening forever. It can never be changed, can never be otherwise.
Paul Auster
A tiny blue dot set in a sunbeam. Here it is. That’s where we live. That’s home. We humans are one species and this is our world. It is our responsibility to cherish it. Of all the worlds in our solar system, the only one so far as we know, graced by life.
Carl Sagan
My grandfather was extremely dark and from Puerto Rico, but his brother had blond hair and blue eyes. There are so many different shades, and I think Hollywood has yet to realize that.
La La Anthony
I’ve been trying to get into the Royal Box in New York for years. They say I’m too dirty, my material is too blue. But I think Redd, the whites and blue can be a nice combination.
Redd Foxx
You seemed to me to be soaring far up in the blue – to be sailing in the bright light, over the heads of men. Suddenly some one tosses up a faded rosebud – a missile that should never have reached you – and down you drop to the ground.
Henry James
The most remarkable thing about him were his eyes. They were laughing eyes, at once both joyous and tender: they were the radiant pale blue of a sky slipping toward evening in Heaven, when angels who had been sweet all day found themselves tempted to sin.
Cassandra Clare
Promise me we’ll stay together, okay? His eyes are once again the clear blue of a perfectly transparent pool. They are eyes to swim in, to float in, forever. “You and me”. “I promise”. I say. behind us the door creaks open, and I turn around, expecting Raven, just as a voice cuts through the air: “Don’t believe her.
Lauren Oliver
Inebriate of air am I, And debauchee of dew, Reeling, through endless summer days, From inns of molten blue.
Emily Dickinson
Was the Buffalo chicken wing invented
when Teressa Bellissimo thought of splitting it in half and deep frying it and serving it with celery and blue-cheese dressing? Was it invented when John Young started using mambo sauce
and thought of elevating wings into a specialty?
Calvin Trillin
Something of God… flows into us from the blue of the sky, the taste of honey, the delicious embrace of water whether cold or hot, and even from sleep itself.
C. S. Lewis
I decided that in Wakanda, the royal family would have extremely dark complexions, like so black they’re blue. My attitude was, because the royal family is dark, the darker you are, the more you’re considered royal.
Brian Stelfreeze
The sun is up, the sky is blue It’s beautiful, and so are you.
John Lennon
beautiful December grapes, blue as plums, every grape a little skinful of sweet, tasteless water
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
I go home at the end of the day and I rarely talk about what I did that day. So my wife’s experience is just like that of anybody else whose husband goes away to a blue collar job and comes home bruised and dirty and often proud of the work that they’re doing.
Adam Savage
Don’t step on my blue suede shoes.
Elvis Presley
When yellow lights struggle with blue shades in hairlike lines.

Sylvia Earle
If your best friend’s feeling tearful,
Try not to be too cheerful.
Just let her fill your ear full
Of sad tales by the score.
And when she is through,
She’ll feel as good as.
Beatrice Schenk de Regniers
I’m a wonderful editor. That’s what I do best. I know exactly what I want. If I have to decide whether to wear the red dress or the blue dress or what should I have said, I am constantly changing my mind.
Barbara Walters
It’s just the way it is. The sky is blue, the sun is bright, and Aspen endlessly loves America. It’s how the world was designed to be.
Kiera Cass
We tend to think of America’s days of frontier exploration as being behind us, but that’s because we tend not to think of the other 71% of our blue planet.
David Helvarg
If I let a blue mood run rampant, before I know it I’m obsessing about the color of the satin lining in my coffin – will it match my dress? That’s when I feel like Alice in Cancerland falling down the rabbit hole and just have to stop.
Kris Carr
the redness had seeped from the day and night was arranging herself around us. Cooling things down, staining and dyeing the evening purple and blue black.
Sue Monk Kidd
The Subject has really blue eyes that twinkle when he looks at someone like she’s maybe a little bit insane.
Ally Carter
The true function of art is to criticize, embellish and edit nature… the artist is a sort of impassioned proof-reader, blue penciling the bad spelling of God.
H. L. Mencken
Blue slips enable home-state senators to ensure that the federal judges serving in their states are highly qualified.
Mazie Hirono
The scrape and snap of Keds on loose alley pebbles seems to catapult their voices high into the moist March air blue above the wires.
John Updike
There are nettles everywhere, but smooth, green grasses are more common still; the blue of heaven is larger than the cloud.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Liberals in blue states working in blue enclaves within blue cities that are producing the media, don’t even see that their positions fit on the spectrum as left of center.
Andrew Breitbart
The fate of this man or that man was less than a drop, although it was a sparkling one, in the great blue motion of the sunlit sea.
T. H. White
My eyes will never be blue; my bone structure will never allow for you to mistake me for a Scandinavian model.
Leandra Medine
Fog and one blue light is all I need in life at the club. Just a dark room and loud music. I’m into that.
Me,” Artemis blurted. “I’m the nut.” Artemis could have sworn the squid winked at him before bringing the five-ton chunk of spacecraft swinging down toward the morsel of meat in its blue shell. “I’m the nut!” Artemis shouted again, a little hysterically, it must be said.
Eoin Colfer
Describe snow to someone who’s lived in the desert. Depict the colour blue for a blind man. Almost impossible to fashion the word.
Andrea Levy
It [the Earth] was breathtakingly beautiful, like something out of a fairy tale. There is no way to describe the joy of seeing the Earth. It is blue, and more beautiful than any other planet.
Valentina Tereshkova
Actually, if you could see close in my eyes, the American flag is waving in both of them and up my spine is growing this red, white and blue stripe.
Walt Disney
Huskies get in trouble. Huskies are well-known to be escape artists. Why? Because they were bred to go long-distance. They’re not bred to be in the backyard and just look beautiful because they have blue eyes.
Cesar Millan
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
L. Frank Baum
One fish. Two fish. Red fish. Blue fish. Black fish. Blue fish. Old fish. New fish. This one has a little star. This one has a little car. Say! What a lot of fish there are.
Dr. Seuss
3 whole Catfish, Wrapped separately Veet (It’s for Shaving your legs Only you don’t Need A razor. It’s with all the Girly cosmetic stuff) Vaseline six pack, Mountain Dew One dozen Tulips one Bottle Of water Tissues One Can of blue Spray paint
John Green
I’m trying to paint an underwater ocean scene. It’s just not working. My queen angelfish is supposed to have these bright yellow eyes and electric-blue stripes along the edge of her fin. Instead, it looks like I’m trying to paint a fried egg with some blue bacon. Maybe I can pass it off as postmodern.
Susane Colasanti
Unrequited love is so boring. Weeping under a blue-black sky is for suckers or maniacs.
Alice Hoffman
In blue Light nature space the whole world, wide grazing land, the open spaces wind across the land and the sky, blue, high
Nils-Aslak Valkeapaa
The spacious firmament on high,
And all the blue ethereal sky,
And spangled heavens, a shining frame,
Their great Original proclaim.
Joseph Addison
Painting is marvelous; it makes you happier and more patient. Afterwards you do not have black fingers as with writing, but blue and red ones.
Hermann Hesse
I’ve come to realize that however blue my circumstances, if after finishing a chapter of a Dickens novel I feel a miss-my-stop-on-the-train sort of compulsion to read on, then everything is probably going to be just fine.
Amor Towles
I am totally a fringe candidate, and so is Bill Weld: you know, two Republican governors serving in heavily blue states, outspoken, small government guys, outspoken on the social liberal side. We’re fringe, totally. We’re fringe.
Gary Johnson
Chime out, thou little song of Spring,
Float in the blue skies ravishing.
Thy song-of-life a joy doth bring
That’s sweet, albeit fleeting.
Float on the Spring-winds e’en to my home:
And when thou to a rose shalt come
That hath begun to show her bloom,
Say, I send her greeting!
Sidney Lanier
I’ve got a New Zealand film coming out here called Out of the Blue. It’s a very heavy story, and it’s the first time I’ve played a character who is alive.
Karl Urban
‘The Blue Dragon’ uses very filmic language and involves a lot of technology. It is more cinematic than theatrical and was inspired by comic strips and graphic novels.
Robert Lepage
My ball is in a bunch of fern, A jolly place to be; An angry man is close astern- He waves his club at me. Well, let him wave-the sky is blue; Go on, old ball, we are but two-We may be down in three, Or nine-or ten-or twenty-five-It matters not; to be alive, Is good enough for me.
A. P. Herbert
I think of New York City lost in stars
forgotten as a blue haired pet of childhood love Tonight the night is full.
Gregory Corso
Heaven above was blue, and earth beneath was green; the river glistened like a path of diamonds in the sun; the birds poured forth their songs from the shady trees; the lark soared high above the waving corn; and the deep buzz of insects filled the air.
Charles Dickens
Billy Strayhorn wrote Multicolored Blue. Billy to me is the boss of the arrangers.
Quincy Jones
Baby fashion has become such a big thing. It used to be that everything had to be pink or blue or cute – you know, very precious – but not cool. But now, my friends who are mothers really want to dress their kids just like themselves.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
My hair has been this chapter thing for me. In ‘Jem,’ I have blue hair. ‘Insidious,’ it’s pink. In ‘CSI,’ I have blonde. I love changing my hair. It’s just hair and it grows all the time.
Hayley Kiyoko
I will be deafer than the blue-eyed cat, And thrice as blind as any noonday owl, To holy virgins in their ecstasies.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Calvin: Dad where do babies come from? Dad: Well Calvin, you simply go to Sears, buy the kit and follow the assembly instructions. Calvin: I came from Sears? Dad: No you were a blue-light special at K-Mart – almost as good and a lot cheaper!
Bill Watterson
From space, the earth appears predominantly blue; the clouds are brilliant white. Surprisingly, you don’t see much green, although Ireland looks green, and so do Scandinavia and New Zealand. The deserts are brick red and really stand out.
Helen Sharman
I see again my schoolroom in Vyra, the blue roses of the wallpaper, the open window.… Everything is as it should be, nothing will ever change, nobody will ever die.
Vladimir Nabokov
Truly 1 percent of this country serves and protects the freedoms of the other 99 percent of us, so many of us don’t have that connection. Fortunately, Jill Biden does. She’s a blue-star mom. Their son was in the National Guard – or is in the – in – is a Reservist.
Michelle Obama
Once in a blue moon someone like you comes along.
Van Morrison
My parents are very proud that I was a ‘Blue Peter’ presenter and of me going to Cambridge to do economics.
Konnie Huq
Much scientific truth proved to be as hypothetical as poetic allegory. The relationshiip of those rod-connected blue and red balls to an actual atomic structure was about the same as the relationship of Christianity to the fish or the Lamb.
Tom Robbins
I do love horror movies, but I’m not the kind of guy who would dress up as a ghoul for Halloween. I might go as a member of the Blue Man Group.
Christopher Mintz-Plasse
Before you go anywhere, Mr. Football Player,” Nita said, “I want to know exactly what your intentions are toward my Blue.
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Bianca Nazario stands at the end of the world. The firmament above is as blue as the summer skies of her childhood, mirrored in the waters of la caldera; but where the skies she remembers were bounded by mountains, here on Sky there is no horizon, only a line of white cloud.
David Moles
I learned that just beneath the surface there’s another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper. I knew it as a kid, but I couldn’t find the proof. It was just a kind of feeling. There is goodness in blue skies and flowers, but another force – a wild pain and decay – also accompanies everything.
David Lynch
The mercury light doesn’t show red. It makes the blood in your skin look blue-black. But see how splendidly it brings out the green in the plants.
Charles Proteus Steinmetz
WAKING AT NIGHT The blue river is grey at morning and evening. There is twilight at dawn and dusk. I lie in the dark wondering if this quiet in me now is a beginning or an end.
Jack Gilbert
The old brown hen and the old blue sky,
Between the two we live and die
The broken cartwheel on the hill.
Wallace Stevens
I’ve not been an admirer of contemporary music since punk rock went off the boil in 1977, but once a year I’ll listen to ‘Spiral Scratch’ by the Buzzcocks, or ‘Hippy Hippy Shake’ by the Swinging Blue Jeans. Otherwise, I can put up with Chopin or shakuhachi flute in the background.
Billy Childish
There is something beautiful about a billion stars held steady by a God who knows what He is doing. (They hang there, the stars, like notes on a page of music, free-form verse, silent mysteries swirling in the blue like jazz.) And as I lay there, it occurred to me that God is up there somewhere.
Donald Miller
President Trump rightly points out that law enforcement is mostly made up of good people putting themselves in harm’s way to protect us. He lauds the men and women in blue and often talks about the need to make it easier for the cops to do their jobs.
Kristen Soltis Anderson
If you take blue paint and yellow paint and you mix them, you get green paint. But if you take blue light and yellow light and mix them, you get white light. This is a shock to most people.
James Turrell
Speaking of hope, did you see that shot Alec got off with his bow? That’s my boyfriend.” He beamed and wiggled his fingers; blue sparks shot from them. He shone all over. Only Magnus, Simon thought resignedly, would have access to sequined battle armor.
Cassandra Clare
We use blue on the handle of the Alessi kettle. Blue is cool, so you’re supposed to think that it’s not hot. And the bird is red: you’re supposed to think to be careful to remove the bird.
Michael Graves
If I hadn’t learned my lesson, I would have wished we could stay there forever. But I knew better now. We’d seen what we’d come to see. The way to trick death. Breathe in. Breathe out. Watch as it all rises upwards, black and blue into the even bluer sky.
Alice Hoffman
Internet users, that blue screen of death you were looking at this morning? That’s the sky. If you’re still confused, look it up on Wikipedia tomorrow.
Stephen Colbert
I ‘m on the sea! I ‘m on the sea! I am where I would ever be, With the blue above and the blue below, And silence wheresoever I go.
Bryan Procter
“Godling? Demigod?” Lysis nearly howled. “You’d be beaten black and blue in Thebes, and staked out overnight for claims like that. In Sparta, the secret police would ambush you, violate you, skin you alive and use your skull for a drinking cup.”
Janet Morris
I remember watching Mike [Michael Jordan]. I remember him having a royal blue blazer and all black t-shirt and he came out of a blue Corvette. That was dope to us. We were like, ‘Yo, Michael killed today.’ He didn’t even talk to the media and walked straight into the arena. Everyday’s like Mike.
Iman Shumpert
There are brown eyes in the world, after all, as well as blue, and one pair of brown that meant heaven to me as the blue had never done
E. Nesbit
I’m having a psychic moment. It involves you and me.” Distracted, Gansey glanced up from the computer screen. “Were you talking to me or Ronan?” “Either. I’m flexible.” Blue made a small, terrible noise. “I would appreciate if you’d turn your inner eye towards the water.
Maggie Stiefvater
I work in a room overlooking the river. I try to get to my desk as soon as I’ve fed my cats and chickens. I use a blue 3B pencil and scribble away for about 20 pages before transferring it to the computer.
Jenny Nimmo
When I have sat at home with this God-given talent for music for a long time, somebody approaches me out of the blue and asks me to play for them. It’s almost as though there’s a force somewhere which is saying ‘no sittin’ around, out you go!
Jeremy Spencer
I sleep till one, and I’m always surprised when someone in blue rinse on a talk show says, ‘You’re a genius, Mr. Newley, you do so many things.’ Tony Newley never realized his potential, did the things he should have done.
Anthony Newley
That’s the really neat thing about Dan Quayle, as you must have realized from the first moment you looked into those lovely blue eyes: impeachment insurance.
Barbara Ehrenreich
Paul’s last words to Linda: “You’re up on yourп»ї beautiful Appaloosa stallion. It’s a fine spring day. We’re riding through the woods. The bluebells are all out, and the sky is clear-blue”.
Paul McCartney
Marianne Dashwood looks at gray skies and sees blue. That’s all very well, and it’s not something you ever want entirely to lose. But you must lose a little of it; otherwise you’re going to get wet.
Emma Thompson
It has no denim-toned house paint. Levi makes what is essentially a commodity: blue jeans. Its ads may evoke rugged outdoorsmanship, but Levi hasn’t promoted any particular life style to sell other products.
Naomi Klein
Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m schizophrenic, and so am I.
Oscar Levant
In 2010, there was a TED event called Mission Blue held aboard the Lindblad Explorer in the Galapagos as part of the fulfillment of Sylvia Earle’s TED wish. I spoke about a new way of exploring the ocean, one that focuses on attracting animals instead of scaring them away.
Edith Widder
‘Notting Hill?’ Does that poke fun at being British? Maybe it does. In ‘Mickey Blue Eyes,’ that’s kind of the point: the clash of worlds, the unlikely combo of a respectable Englishman and a mob guy. If you take out the Britishness, you don’t really have much.
Hugh Grant
But once in a while the odd thing happens
Once in a while the dream comes true
And the whole pattern of life is altered
Once in a while, the moon turns blue
W. H. Auden
Gripping my arm, Mother held it in the orange-blue flame. My skin seemed to explode from the heat.
Dave Pelzer
If you look at Earth from space you see a dot, that’s here. That’s home. That’s us. It underscores the responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.
Carl Sagan
A pair of blue jeans is a must. It is the most comfortable outfit anyone can opt for.
Nikita Thukral
Reading student papers, blue books, etc., a form of torture … a matter of rubbing an iron file over one’s teeth, or holding urine in one’s mouth, or having the racket of a bulldozer in one’s ear for an hour or two on end.
Newton Arvin
We are the true architects of our lives. Only we as individuals and individuals alone, carry within us, the inner ability to make any changes to it’s blue prints.
Robert M. Hensel
Just as a dancer, turning and turning, may fill the dusty light with the soft swirl of her flying skirts, our weeping willow — now old and broken , creaking in the breeze — turns slowly, slowly in the winter sun, sweeping the rusty roof of the barn with the pale blue lacework of her shadow.
Ted Kooser
I was roundly criticized for being in and around rock & roll music at its inception. It was the devil’s music: it would make your teeth fall out and your hair turn blue, whatever the hell. You get through that.
Dick Clark
People in red states and blue states can agree that if we can fight pollution and poverty at the same time, letting people work their way out of poverty without undermining community health, we have a moral obligation to do so.
Van Jones
And blue-lung’d combers lumbered to the kill.
Robert Lowell
You might be a redneck if…you think that John Deere Green, Ford Blue, and Primer Gray are the three of the primary colors.
Jeff Foxworthy
By the road to the contagious hospital under the surge of the blue mottled clouds driven from the northeast – a cold wind.
William Carlos Williams
I get the Swansea-Cardiff thing: I was a Swansea player; I loved playing against Cardiff. But when I played for Wales and played with Jason Perry or Nathan Blake, I never saw them as blue and white and me as black and white.
Chris Coleman
You can tap into culture by exploring what’s grown or produced in the region, like going into the Blue Mountains in Jamaica to visit a coffee plantation or a rum distillery in Barbados.
Katie Lee
Out of the blue and into the black
Neil Young
I smoke a blunt once every blue moon. But hey, the moon looks kinda blue tonight.
Randy Moss
I always carried a small American flag red white and blue with me so people would know I was from America.
George Foreman
I think some people are under the impression that you can simply just shoot it on blue, and then it’s all done in post. But no, you really need to understand the pipeline, from beginning to end.
Joseph Kosinski
However in the world did her skin come green?” Nanny wondered, stupidly, for Melena blanched and Frex reddened, and the baby held her breath as if trying to turn blue to please them all. Nanny had to slap her to make her breath again.
Gregory Maguire
Beauty is and always will be blue skies and open highway.
Dave Hickey
When I was first starting out, you’d have to bang an old upright piano and stick a mike in it and it would always feed back and you could never turn it up loud enough to be heard and I would beat my hands black and blue and bloody.
Edgar Winter
About a year ago, out of the blue, I just wrote a bunch of songs.
Rick Moranis
I grew up in a predominantly Caucasian community, and most of my friends had blonde hair and blue eyes. So I was always straightening my hair, wearing colored contacts, and I never tanned, if I could help it.
Shay Mitchell
Openings come quickly, sometimes, like blue space in running clouds. A complete overcast, then a blaze of light.
Tennessee Williams
I’m attracted to bold women – I collect them. I met one of my best friends when we both were about 22 and working at ‘Mirabella’ magazine. I was wearing this blue dress I had borrowed from my mom, and I didn’t know I had deodorant lines all over it until my friend signaled to me.
Tracee Ellis Ross
No matter how politely one says it, we owe our existence to the farts of blue-green algae.
Diane Ackerman
There is the idea that, when we look at things, it is the yellow light that helps us the most, that we are the most sensitive for. But our circadian rhythms, which are the rhythms that help us to wake and sleep and be alert and relaxed and so forth and so on, they are much more triggered by blue light.
Rogier van der Heide
My father once nearly came to blows with a female dinner guest about whether a particular patch of embroidery was fuchsia or magenta. But the infinite gradations of color in a fine sunset – from salmon to canary to midnight blue – left him wordless.
Alison Bechdel
I spent many years not knowing where my dad was… Not knowing if my dad was alive, even. He turned up when I was 16 out of the blue.
Gerard Butler
Glaring at the Gasman, ter Borcht said, “Your time is coming to an end, you pathetic failure of an experiment. Vhat you say now is how you vill be remembered.” Gazzy’s blue eyes flashed. “Then you can remember me telling you to kiss my-” “Enough!” ter Borcht said.
James Patterson
In Asia, red is the colour of joy; red is the colour of festivities and of celebration. In Chinese culture, blue is the colour of mourning.
Vincent Tan
I ski every three years or so. I don’t have the ingrained confidence that others do, but I’ll happily toddle about a green or blue run.
Cherie Lunghi
To one who has been long in city pent, ’Tis very sweet to look into the fair And open face of heaven, — to breathe a prayer Full in the smile of the blue firmament.
John Keats
I have found in the world of film many movies including Beyond Rangoon, The Crow, Gandhi, Doctor Zhivago, and The Big Blue, a French film, convey similar understandings. I’m sure the list is endless. These are just a few of my favorites.
Frederick Lenz
The river was so blue it seemed to be breathing.
Brian Morton
This is ridiculous. It’s been months and for some reason I just can’t get over us. I’m stronger than this. Enough is enough; no more walking around with my head down, I’m so over being blue crying over you.
The ocean is our life support system. No blue, no green. It’s really a miracle that we have got a place that works in our favor.
Sylvia Earle
I questioned everything. I didn’t see a character developed in Platoon at all. The character in Blue Velvet was much more fascinating to me.
Kyle MacLachlan
I’d always thought that ‘NYPD Blue’ really would open those doors. While I think it created a much broader template for cable, I don’t think it really did that much for network television.
Steven Bochco
God bless the boys from Memphis, blue suede shoes, and Elvis.
George Jones
The wardrobe? It was so full of gowns that he didn’t think he could cram himself inside. Besides, it would be awkward if the maid came in to lay out a gown for dinner and grabbed Oliver instead of the blue silk with lace sleeves.
Jessica Day George
The movie [Blue Jasmin] shot very quick. I met Cate Blanchett in the car on the way to set, and we did that last scene, and she was just so phenomenal. I had basically met her that day. Because the way he shoots, everybody just shows up and does their thing, and he moves us very quickly.
Alden Ehrenreich
Rose is in red, But never in blue, Sharp as a thorn, Fights like one too.
Richelle Mead
Seattle is a liberal city, its politics not so much blue in the American, not the British, sense as deep ultramarine, and its manners are studiously polite.
Jonathan Raban
When I first came out with Blue, everyone compared me to Patsy Cline, which is the biggest honor, ’cause I’ve always looked up to her.
LeAnn Rimes
It wasn’t until I was 35 or 36, when I wrote ‘Danny and the Deep Blue Sea,’ that I began to get some notoriety, though I only made $5,000.
John Patrick Shanley
I used to go with solid blue, but recently I’ve found that a mix of red and green is a better fit for my personality.
Tichina Arnold
I won all the blue ribbons for canning at the state fair.
Loretta Lynn
When I look up and see the sun shining on the patch of white clouds up in the blue, I begin to think how it would feel to be up somewhere above it winging swiftly thought the clear air, watching the earth below, and the men on it, no bigger than ants.
Eddie Rickenbacker
The book that made a lasting impression was the one my mother gave each of us when she decided we were ready for our first “adult novel,” Lucy Maud Montgomery’s The Blue Castle.
Hallie Ephron
Don’t pick the wrong target when you’re angry, and don’t hurt the ones you love or the ones who love you, because if you keep a good attitude and are prepared to do your work, you just might get an opportunity out of the blue.
Terry O’Quinn
The Blue and White government, led by me, will assemble the strongest security cabinet against terrorism and restore deterrence.
Benny Gantz
She’s as fetching as brown hair done up with ribbons blue The mountain, my lady She’s as sweet as pink flowers made bright with morning dew, Mount Eskel, my lady
Shannon Hale
I hate to go out on a limb after only one viewing, but Nashville strikes me as Altman’s best film, and the most exciting dramatic musical since Blue Angel.
Andrew Sarris
Good things are associated with blue, like clear days, more than singing the blues. Just the word ‘blue’ in the singular is full of optimism and positive connotation to most people.
David Carson
We endorse Blue Origin and Jeff Bezos’ vision of ‘millions of people living and working in space’ – this is the heart and soul of the NSS Roadmap to Space Settlement.
Bruce Pittman
Of the crow-blue mussel shells, one keeps
adjusting the ash heaps;
opening and shutting itself like
injured fan.
Marianne Moore
Lilacs, False Blue, White, Purple,
Colour of lilac,
Your great puffs of flowers
Are everywhere in this my New England …
Lilacs in dooryards
Holding quiet conversation with an early moon;
Lilacs watching a deserted house; …
Lilacs, wind-beaten, staggering under a lopsided shock of bloom,
You are everywhere.
Amy Lowell
I don’t see social media as lending my voice as much as I see it speaking my truth. If you look at my open letters, the one I wrote about Blue Ivy too – you see, I am always as the foundation, talking about us being a better humanity. I believe in that.
Kate Middleton has no blue blood coursing through her veins. Her father, Michael, is self-made, and he and his wife have been very successful with their party business, but they are and always will be strictly middle class.
Penny Junor
The night folds her trembling hands over a weary world. Out of a pale blue rises the shining moon. My thoughts are flying to the stars like lonely swans.
Joseph Goebbels
I’m like a blue-collar writer. I just sit down every day and I write.
Philip Kan Gotanda
If Jesus Christ came back today, He and I would get into our brown corduroys and go to the nearest jean store and overturn the racks of blue denim.
Ian Anderson
Doctor Who has never pretended to be hard science fiction… At best Doctor Who is a fairytale, with fairytale logic about this wonderful man in this big blue box who at the beginning of every story lands somewhere where there is a problem…
Neil Gaiman
Well, we know that people in Australia love the idea of both Impulse and Virgin Blue getting up and adding a bit of competition, and it’s fun to be able to deliver it.
Richard Branson
‘Dune’ was like a giant machine, and it was hard to keep track of all the pieces, but ‘Blue Velvet’ was a very sleek, compact little experience.
Kyle MacLachlan
You say: “I’m a blue sky thinker.” Investor thinks: “You have no business model, and you don’t know how to ship.”
Guy Kawasaki
Maybe it’s just hiding somewhere. Or gone on a trip to come home. But falling in love is always a pretty crazy thing. It might appear out of the blue and just grab you. Who knows — maybe even tomorrow.
Haruki Murakami
I wanted to finish my career as a Steeler. I felt I just fit the mold as far as a blue-collar guy. I may not be the flashiest, most flamboyant wide receiver out there. But I get the job done for my team.
Hines Ward
So happy just to be alive,
Underneath the sky of blue,
On this new morning, new morning,
On this new morning with you.
Bob Dylan
My essentials are skinny jeans, loose-fitting tees, big jumpers, and the leather jacket. Everything is black or blue – I don’t own anything colorful.
Jamie Campbell Bower
Santa knows Physics: Of all colors, Red Light penetrates fog best. That’s why Benny the Blue-nosed reindeer never got the gig.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Stop reading the news for a week; you will see that the world will turn from red to blue!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
We’ve known Cyndi Lauper since she was in ‘Blue Angel’; we did a TV show with her back in ’79 or ’80. We don’t have any competition; we’re complementary.
Kate Pierson
I wish you could see the two cats drowsing side by side in a Victorian nursing chair, their paws, their ears, their tails complementarily adjusted, their blue eyes blinking open on a single thought of when I shall remember it’s their supper time. They might have been composed by Bach for two flutes.
Sylvia Townsend Warner
And so out of the blue the call did come and said, you know, “Would you be – would you consider turning this [The Starter Wife] now into a series?” And so obviously that was a shock. And all the conversations began. And, you know, and now we’re here. Now we’re finishing up our last episode right now.
Debra Messing
My room was in one of those turrets and at night I could hear the sea and the faint rustle of eelgrass in the soft wind. The weather was perfect that summer. No storms. Blue skies and just the right amount of wind every day. The sailors were in heaven.
Katherine Page
There is a reason why you are here on this beautiful blue planet. Even if you aren’t clear about what that reason is, the universe is gently nudging you forward in every moment. You are enough just as you are.
Denise Linn
I threw the opening pitch at a Blue Jays game, and after the pitch, the mascot asked me if I wanted him to sign the game ball, which I thought was funny. What would he write? “Best Wishes, Some Guy in a Bird Suit”?”
Ken Jennings
Film rights were in the offing for ‘The Onion Field,’ eventually made into a movie in 1979; ‘The New Centurions’ became a 1972 film starring George C. Scott, while ‘The Blue Knight’ starred William Holden in a 1973 mini-series version.
Sarah Weinman
When I saw John Turturro in ‘Danny and the Deep Blue Sea,’ I realized that was the kind of actor I wanted to be.
Bobby Cannavale
Her face was fair and pretty, with eyes like two bits of night sky, each with a star dissolved in the blue.
George MacDonald
BlueВ hasВ no dimensions, it is beyondВ dimensions.
Yves Klein
I would recommend if you come to Ocean Grove and you’re not from around here, don’t wear rubber pants, a pink shirt and a blue jacket. Leave that for Asbury Park.
Peter Noone
When the light turns green, you go. When the light turns red, you stop. But what do you do when the light turns blue with orange and lavender spots?
Shel Silverstein
Before I put ‘Blue Lights’ out, I deleted my Instagram and everything and started again.
Jorja Smith
I don’t use blue. I don’t like it. It bugs me out. I hate it.
Kanye West
I have wondered sometimes if there are not perhaps some disadvantages in having really blue blood in one’s veins, like grandmamma and me.
Elinor Glyn
Millennials aspire to marry the blue skies thinking of the Boomers with the grass-roots mindset of GenX.
Mal Fletcher
I believe that true beauty comes from inside you and that always shows through. I have no problem with whatever the next look is, whether it’s big blonde hair and blue eyes or green hair and dark eyes. That’s fine so long as there isn’t just one ideal image.
Alek Wek
I’ve always loved aggressive, hard, noisy, yet melodic bands, and at the same time I’ve always loved ‘Blue’ by Joni Mitchell.
Art Alexakis
I’ve never turned blue in someone else’s
bathroom. I consider that the height of bad
Keith Richards
Rental formal wear of the sky-blue, brocade and shiny varieties is favored by upwardly mobile young gangsters drafted as groomsmen for weddings.
George V. Higgins
I put a limited time on the blues. I say, ‘I allowed myself to be blue for four hours, and now I’m going to stop.’
Teri Hatcher
We’ve got blue light, we’ve got all this light flooding our bedrooms and things blinking, and you can’t get a decent night’s sleep.
Linda Ronstadt
When I hit my 20s, I struggled to make it. I got married at 19, and my daughter, Je’Niece, was born a year later. I worked blue collar jobs during the day and comedy clubs at night, and I was earning about $25 a year doing stand-up.
Bernie Mac
I grew up in an upper-middle-class town with a population around 12,000. My high school held around a thousand kids. All smart. We had a strict dress code. If you wore blue jeans to school, they sent you home.
Jeffrey Gitomer
I definitely associate music with color. For example, my first record has a red cover but it is totally green and blue to me.
Kaki King
We are a blue planet and an ocean world.
Nainoa Thompson
I have a thing for just a white shirt and blue jeans. I think I grew up looking at too many GAP and Calvin Klein ads.
Italia Ricci
Any working composer or painter or sculptor will tell you that inspiration comes at the eighth hour of labour rather than as a bolt out of the blue. We have to get our vanities and our preconceptions out of the way and do the work in the time allotted.
John Williams
I questioned everything. I didn’t see a character developed in Platoon at all. The character in Blue Velvet was much more fascinating to me
Kyle MacLachlan
She’s my baby sister – I could talk about her till I’m blue in the face.
Poppy Delevingne
And your police are like our police in the Realm?’ Blue said. ‘They flog you if you do something wrong and cut off your hand if you’re caught stealing?’ No, they don’t do that, Henry said uncertainly. Why not? It’s pretty silly not to, isn’t it?’ Blue said.
Herbie Brennan
Against the windows the storm comes dashing, Through tattered foliage the hail tears crashing, The blue lightning flashes, The rapid hail clashes… The thunder is rumbling And crashing and crumbling.
James Russell Lowell
Tom Ford, who is my all-time favourite, once said to me, ‘Here’s the thing about dress shirts, Rob. You need white, and you need black.’ ‘What about blue,’ I asked. He said, ‘Have you ever seen Cary Grant in a blue dress shirt?’
Rob Lowe
Depression comes in bouts. Like boxing. Dad is in the blue corner.
Joe Dunthorne
It’s sad, because he just doesn’t have any ambition outside of loving his wife and his daughter — which should be enough but doesn’t seem to be enough in this case.
Ryan Gosling
Illnesses do not come upon us out of the blue. They are developed from small daily sins against Nature. When enough sins have accumulated, illnesses will suddenly appear.
I wanted to be like my friends. I hung out with girls who had blue eyes and blond hair and I thought, ‘I want to look like them!’
Selena Gomez
We have a snap of my dad wearing blue eye shadow, which I would always make fun of. When I was about 12 and first started wearing lipstick, my dad would ask, ‘Are you wearing makeup?’ I would say back, ‘You’re wearing more makeup there than I am!’
Georgia May Jagger
Even when you’re down and blue, just remember that someone out there loves you, even if you don’t know it and even if you haven’t yet met them. There’s someone out there waiting for you, remember that and keep faith. You’ll get there.
Johnny Depp
I am not exuding anything,” said Holly through gritted teeth. Orion tapped her shoulder. “I beg to differ. You’re exuding right now, a wonderful aura. It’s pastel blue with little dolphins.
Eoin Colfer
Everybody has their own taste, and I allow for that, but personally, I don’t like a striped tie on a striped shirt. I don’t like brown shoes with a blue suit. Cordovan maybe, but not brown.
Alec Baldwin
I end not far from my going forth By picking the faded blue Of the last remaining aster flower To carry again to you.
Robert Frost
I was working in computers when this stranger approached me out of the blue, saying I should become an actor. I took it as a gift from God, because I had been praying for clarity about what He wanted me to do, since I wasn’t happy in computers.
Nate Parker
We all know the moon isn’t made out of green cheese…but if it was made out of barbeque spare ribs would you eat it?
Will Ferrell
I feel like blue jeans are kind of too ‘country’ for me.
Jack Barakat
My heart beats red, white, and blue.
And with patriotism it aches
Generally, I believe in democracy, freedom and civil rights
But in particular, cupcakes
John Walter Bratton
And there in the blue air I saw for the first time, far off, the great snowy tops of the Rocky Mountains. I had to get to Denver at once.
Jack Kerouac
To her Cheshire smile, I’ll stand on file, she’s all I ever wanted. But you let your blue walls get in the way of these facts.
Bruce Springsteen
All my songs depict a slice of life and how youngsters perceive it. My song ‘Blue Eyes’ is exactly the kind of conversation a 21 or 22-year-old guy will have with the girl he likes.
Yo Yo Honey Singh
We have two nations, and it’s not black or white. It’s red and blue. Under Republican leadership, cities tend to do better. Cities are destroyed under Democrats, because they don’t know how to deal with the constituency; they’re terrified.
Greg Gutfeld
She’s not my type,’ Carter says. ‘So what is your type?’ ‘Tall, skinny, black hair, blue eyes, freckly nose. Blue tinsel wig and snowflakes optional.’ ‘Skinny?’ I squeal. ‘Definitely. Pretending to be shy, sensible and stand-offish when really you’re mad about me.’ ‘You sure about that?’ ‘No, but I’m hoping.
Cathy Cassidy
I have mountains of the blue Neutrogena makeup wipes in the bottom of the cabinet in my bathroom. It is all you see. We order them by the caseload.
La La Anthony
I was standing on the deck of the USS Blue, a destroyer. We were all alone out there at this buoy, tied up.
Barney Ross
America’s veterans and troops serving abroad today fought hard to preserve our red, white and blue, from the Revolutionary War to today’s Global War Against Terrorism, and Congress’ action today is appropriate for one of our most sacred symbols.
Bill Shuster
I like to be very girly, with bows and ruffles on the red carpet. I love pastel colours, especially blue. Me and my sister both because of our eyes look good in blues.
Elle Fanning
I love to go and mingle with the young
In the gay festal room–when every heart
Is beating faster than the merry tune,
And their blue eyes are restless, and their lips
Parted with eager joy, and their round cheeks
Flush’d with the beautiful motion of the dance.
Nathaniel Parker Willis
The modern era of feminism is how you track that at its beginning. It manifested itself in crazy ways. Parents would try raising their daughters in blue rooms with GI Joe and try raising their sons in pink rooms with Barbie to see what would happen, and they were shocked.
Rush Limbaugh
Green is the fresh emblem of well founded hopes. In blue the spirit can wander, but in green it can rest.
Mary Webb
Blue Shift’ is a game that I’m very proud of.
Randy Pitchford
There are better ways we can transform this virulent hatred – by living our ideals, the Peace Corps, exchange students, teachers, exporting our music, poetry, blue jeans.
Helen Thomas
The Carrie Mae Weems photograph ‘Blue Black Boy,’ I thought, was fantastic.
Glenn Ligon
When seen from outer space, our beautiful blue planet has no national boundaries.
Dalai Lama
You cannot find the centre Where we dance , where we play, Where life is still asleep Under the closed flower , Under the smooth shell Of eggs in the cupped nest That mock the faded blue Of your remoter heaven .
R. S. Thomas
In DC Comics, Blue Devil is a superhero who came out of a movie.
Marc Guggenheim
I invented the colors of the vowels!–A black, E white, I red, O blue, U green–I made rules for the form and movement of each consonant, and, and with instinctive rhythms, I flattered myself that I had created a poetic language accessible, some day, to all the senses.
Arthur Rimbaud
The Love Army is a growing network of people who want to stick up for the underdogs in the red states and blue states in the era of [Donald] Trump.
Van Jones
Blue tried not to look at Gansey’s boat shoes; she felt better about him as a person if she pretended he wasn’t wearing them.
Maggie Stiefvater
Today, possible presidential candidate Donald Trump released his birth certificate. It lists his eyes as blue and his hair as ridiculous.
Conan O’Brien
Planes and Trains and Boats and Busses Characteristically Evolve a common attitude of blue Unless you have a suitcase and a ticket and a passport And the cargo that they’re carrying is you.
Tom Waits
Use your power to do whatever it takes to secure for humankind an enduring place on this little blue speck in the universe – our only hope.
Sylvia Earle
I have always been drawn to designing fashions that are rebellious, like black leather jackets on suburban kinds, a corset dress, punk, blue jeans. I love that. Fashion changes all the time, and what is considered extreme or elegant or luxurious (or not luxurious) is changing all the time.
Jean Paul Gaultier
How joyously the young sea-mew
Lay dreaming on the waters blue,
Whereon our little bark had thrown
A little shade, the only one;
But shadows ever man pursue.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
‘Blue Nights’ is a story of loss: simple, wrenching, inconsolable loss.
Cathleen Schine
I was having an out-of-body experience, it was so hot. I felt I was watching someone play in a blue dress, and it wasn’t me.
Serena Williams
Her blue eyes sought the west afar,
For lovers love the western star.
Walter Scott
In some parallel universe, there was a Gansey who could tell Blue that he found the ten inches of her bare calves far more tantalizing than the thirteen cubic feet of bare skin Orla sported. But in this universe, that was Adam’s job. He was in a terrible mood.
Maggie Stiefvater
Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60’s. Or maybe I was just a girl… interrupted.
Susanna Kaysen
The word “Blue” does not mean the sensation caused by a gentian on the human eye; but it means the power of producing that sensation: and this power is always there, in the thing, whether we are there to experience it or not, and would remain there though there were not a man left on the face of the earth.
John Ruskin
The sea! the sea! the open sea! The blue, the fresh, the ever free! Without a mark, without a bound, It runneth the earth’s wide regions round; It plays with the clouds; it mocks the skies; Or like a cradled creature lies.
Bryan Procter
The Dreamcast version of ‘Half-Life’ is great – it looks better than the original PC version and it’s the only way console owners can enjoy ‘Half-Life: Blue Shift.’
Randy Pitchford
Really, I’ve been working forever, just doing music, and then all of a sudden, out of the blue, everybody is just on it.
Ty Dolla Sign
Blue is the smoke of wrar, white the bones of men.
Du Fu
I think a lot of blue collar people related to me because a lot of people work for their money.
Larry Bird
I think if you look all across the country, the so-called Blue Dogs are all gone to kennel. There are no more Blue Dogs, they’re called Republicans. People would rather elect consistently conservative Republicans than Blue Dogs, who are only conservative when it’s convenient.
Tim Griffin
I’m not worried about a ‘blue wave,’ I just think Republicans have to act like Republicans and govern like Republicans.
I loved, in ‘Starman’, the use of anamorphic lenses, the creation of blue light, and Carpenter’s use of the widescreen format.
Jeff Nichols
John D. Rockefeller was certainly the first to create a consumer product that was sold literally throughout the entire world. Those blue 5-gallon cans showed up in some of the remotest parts of the world.
Charles R. Morris
I do understand sometimes when actors say there’s no one to talk to, or you can’t react to, there’s truth in that, but for me, I’ve always enjoyed green screen, and blue screen.
Nicolas Cage
If wearing a weave is what makes you feel beautiful, if wearing a wig, if wearing your hair pink, blue, that’s what matters, in my opinion.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Any film featuring Bradley Cooper’s gorgeous blue eyes is automatically on my must-see list and they did not disappoint in ‘The Words,’ which is so intense and confusing that I was pretty lost by the end!
Gayle King
Business can talk itself into a blue funk.
Helen Clark
If I were king of the world, babies born in airplanes, balloons and blimps would, instead of choosing to be German, Maldivian or American, all get special heavenly blue passports with a stork on the cover labeled ‘Sky Baby’ – and they’d be allowed to come and go anywhere they please.
Robert Krulwich
It was morning; through the high window I saw the pure, bright blue of the sky as it hovered cheerfully over the long roofs of the neighboring houses. It too seemed full of joy, as if it had special plans, and had put on its finest clothes for the occasion.
Hermann Hesse
Conductor, when you receive a fare, Punch in the presence of the passenjare. A blue trip slip for an eight-cent fare, A buff trip slip for a six-cent fare, A pink trip slip for a three-cent fare, Punch in the presence of the passenjare! Punch, brothers! punch with care! Punch in the presence of the passenjare!
Mark Twain
Know’st thou the land where the lemon-trees bloom, Where the gold orange glows in the deep thicket’s gloom, Where a wind ever soft from the blue heaven blows, And the groves are of laurel and myrtle and rose!
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I’m a real blue jeans girl, I wear jeans all the time and I couldn’t live without them. Jeans and blazers.
Gwyneth Paltrow
Woman, nude, is the blue sky. Clouds and garments are an obstacle to contemplation. Beauty and infinity would be gazed upon unveiled.
Victor Hugo
Only the foolish, blinded by language’s conventions, think of fire as red or gold. Fire is blue at it’s melancholy rim, green in it’s envious heart. It may burn white, or even, in it’s greatest rages, black.
Salman Rushdie
Once a pallid Vestal Doubted truth in blue; Listed red in ruin, Harried every hue; Barricaded vision, Garbed herself in sighs; Ridiculed the birthmarks Of the butterflies.
Nathalia Crane
I read about some movie where they did everything on blue screen, and the actors were not even connecting to each other.
Michel Gondry
I’m in my father’s car at age 9 or 10 crying to Leonard Cohen’s ‘Famous Blue Raincoat,’ thinking that you could write nearly a love letter to a man who betrayed you by having an affair with your wife. I was thinking how wonderful and pure music can be for explaining situations.
Lou Doillon
On the old highway maps of America, the main routes were red and the back roads blue. Now even the colors are changing.
William Least Heat-Moon
When I was five or six, I asked to sing at a big family party, and ever since I got up there in front of everyone in my suit – it had a blue collar, like in ‘Scarface’ – I had the bug.
Jencarlos Canela
As winds come whispering lightly from the West, Kissing, not ruffling, the blue deep’s serene.
Lord Byron
May you always see a blue sky overhead, my young friend; and then, even when the time comes, as it has come for me now, when the woods are black, when night is fast falling, you will be able to console yourself, as I do, by looking up at the sky.
Marcel Proust
In particular, there was a butler in a blue coat and bright buttons, who gave quite a winey flavour to the table beer; he poured it out so superbly.
Charles Dickens
The truth of anything doesn’t matter anymore. What’s right doesn’t matter. What makes economic common sense doesn’t matter. I’m blue in the face over it.
Rush Limbaugh
When a person looks through a colored lens, everything seems to be that color. If the lens is tinted yellow or blue, everything seems yellow or blue. A person who looks at life through the lens of gratitude will always find things to be grateful for.
Zelig Pliskin
I am iron butterfly … / I am she/we / of flesh / and iron / and silk wings, / healing, flying / into a gentle blue sky.
Janice Mirikitani
This is my vision-what I imagine I’ll pass through on my way to the light. The blue sky, the clouds, the rays of light.
Julie Anne Peters
Above me I saw something I did not believe at first. Well above the haze layer of the earth’s atmosphere were additonal faint thin bands of blue, sharply etched against the dark sky. They hovered over the earth like a succession of halos.
David G. Simons
At home, a T-shirt and something loose like harem pants would do. If I’m stepping out, a pair of blue jeans and a white tee are just fine.
Genelia D’Souza
The clothes do not match my personality. I’m more of a very conservative, blue-blazer kind of guy. But as far as my personality, it’s a lot of hot-dog mustard – have a lot of a fun and a lot of excitement. I feel like I’m 68; I act like I’m 12, talking about a game of basketball.
Dick Vitale
And the blue gentian-flower, that, in the breeze, Nods lonely, of her beauteous race the last.
William C. Bryant
After the rains departed the skies and settled on earth – clear skies; moist brilliant earth – greater clarity returned to life alone with the blue above and made the world below rejoice with the freshness of the recent rain. It left heaven in our souls and a freshness in our hearts.
Fernando Pessoa
I take a sun bath and listen to the hours, formulating, and disintegrating under the pines, and smell the resiny hardihood of the high noon hours. The world is lost in a blue haze of distances, and the immediate sleeps in a thin and finite sun.
Zelda Fitzgerald
I don’t know what to think of the money. It’s kind of mind-boggling. I come from a middle-class, blue-collar family. We’ve never really had money.
Pat Burrell
Just a lot of those bands [like The Blue Jean Committee] started off in blues, and then they all transformed into other kinds.
Fred Armisen
The 2008 presidential election was a triumph of hope and unity over fear and divisiveness. Barack Obama’s election reshapes America’s political landscape and wipes away the false geography of ‘red states’ and ‘blue states.’
Amy Klobuchar
Magnus had a list of favored traits in a partner-black hair, blue eyes, honest.
Cassandra Clare
I’m a ‘blue sky thinker’ and dream big.
Hilary Knight
Born with blue spectacles, you would think the world was blue and never be conscious of the existence of the distorting glass.
T. E. Hulme
I am a simple man and I use simple materials: Ivory Black, Vermilion, Prussian Blue, Yellow Ochre, Flake White and no medium. That’s all I’ve ever used in my paintings.
L. S. Lowry
I pictured my mom, alone in our little apartment on the Upper East Side. I tried to remember the smell of her blue waffles in the kitchen. It seemed so far away.
Rick Riordan
Some eco groups suggest that as many as 73 million sharks are killed globally every year. Hammerheads, blue sharks, mako sharks – they’re disappearing, and they ain’t coming back.
Stephen Rodrick
I can read in red. I can read in blue. I can read in pickle color too.
Dr. Seuss
Our work for human dignity is often lonely, and almost always an uphill climb. At times, our efforts are misunderstood, and we are mistaken for the enemy. There has been a clear erosion of respect for U.N. blue and our impartiality.
Ban Ki-moon
I was trained in classical piano, but it kind of dawned on me that classical pianists compete for six job openings a year, and the rest of us get to play ‘Blue Moon’ in a hotel lobby.
Barbara Kingsolver
Blue suggests the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract.
Yves Klein
You’re lookin’ so good in what’s left of those blue jeans
Drip of honey on the money maker gotta be
The best buzz I’m ever gonna find
Hey, I’m a little drunk on you
And high on summertime
Luke Bryan
There are moments on most days when I feel a deep and sincere gratitude, when I sit at the open window, and there is a blue sky or moving clouds.
Kathe Kollwitz
The stallion and his mare,
unbridled, with arrow-pattern,
are worked on.
the blue cloth
before the door
of religion and inspiration.
Hilda Doolittle
I actually didn’t own any North Face until I was 18 and the first one I had was a gorgeous Blue Extreme and I loved it.
Princess Nokia
Even if your difficult time comes at you out of the blue – like cancer – even those times, opens your heart to the magic and power of life, and gives you this inner commitment to live every moment.
Elizabeth Lesser
Too often, our minds are locked on one track. We are looking for red – so we overlook blue. Many Nobel Prizes have been washed down the drain because someone did not expect the unexpected.
John Turner
As I lay stretched upon the beach of Nice, I began to feel hatred for birds which flew back and forth across my blue sky, cloudless sky, because they tried to bore holes in my greatest and most beautiful work.
Yves Klein
I dress in my ‘uniform,’ or my own dress code, which reflects my personal method and work ethic. My belief is that my plain T-shirt – I have about 40 of them – or blue sweater helps focus others’ attention on me and on what I say.
Giorgio Armani
If you’re white and you’re wrong, then you’re wrong; if you’re black and you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green – God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now.
Bob Marley
The most amazing feeling I feel
Words can’t describe what I’m feeling for real
Maybe I paint the sky blue
My greatest creation was you.
I stand above the tree level I am a tree I catch wind storm breaths My branches claw I drink sky It stretches me I don’t care I catch jokes and luck from tall thin blue air
Marie Ponsot
Virgin Galactic, which will be operating SpaceShipTwo, will be only one of several spacelines. The competitors for Virgin include the Russians, Bezos’s Blue Origin, and possibly Rocketplane Kistler. And likely a couple of others who are smart enough not to tell people what they are doing!
Burt Rutan
I did not like the nothing, and it is thus that I met the empty, the deep empty, the depth of the blue.
Yves Klein
My mother bought me a brand new suit for going away to college. We were poor, but she wanted me to have that. It was a powder blue suit with peg pants – you know, skinny at the bottom. I think I made quite an impression with that.
Tom Heinsohn
To find happiness, it is not quite difficult thing. It is just enough to distinguish the blue of the sky from the pink of peach flowers which are opening out.
Che Lan Vien
But, for all that, they had a very pleasant walk. The trees were bare of leaves, and the river was bare of water-lilies; but the sky was not bare of its beautiful blue, and the water reflected it, and a delicious wind ran with the stream, touching the surface crisply.
Charles Dickens
As an accountant by trade, my work for blue chip companies took me all over the world.
Marta Andreasen
A bruise, blue in the muscle, you impinge upon me. As bone hugs the ache home, so I’m vexed to love you, your body the shape of returns, your hair a torso of light, your heat I must have, your opening I’d eat, each moment of that soft-finned fruit, inverted fountain in which I don’t see me.
Li-Young Lee
I guess when you’re on ‘Blue Peter’ there’s that goody-two-shoes image which people find attractive.
Konnie Huq
I’m insecure about everything, because I’m never going to look in the mirror and see this blond, blue-eyed girl. That is my idea of what I’d like to look like.
I got my wife a mood ring. It works real good! When shes in a good mood it turns blue, but when shes in a bad mood theres a red mark across my forehead
Jeff Foxworthy
The grape Hyacinth is the favorite spring flower of my garden – but no! I though a minute ago the Scilla was! and what place has the Violet? the Flower de Luce? I cannot decide, but this I know – it is some blue flower.
Alice Morse Earle
Ah, well, then you’ve never stood on a beach as the waves came crashing in, the water stretching out from you until it’s beyond sight, moving and blue and alive and so much bigger than even the black beyond seems because the ocean hides what it contains.
Patrick Ness
I learned from Seurat this important thing about colour and light, that ‘a light’ can be built from colour. I learned a great deal about interaction, that ‘a blue’ in different parts will play all sorts of different roles.
Bridget Riley
Both princesses immediately looked wary, exchanging glances. “Warn us of what?” Petunia asked. She studied him with those blue, blue eyes and Oliver wondered all over again what he was doing here.
Jessica Day George
I don’t have any particular methodology, to tell you the truth. ‘Silver Blue’ took exactly the amount of time to write that it takes to sing it, and ‘Prisoner in Disguise’ took about a year and a half. So you just never know.
J. D. Souther
I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be President of the United States of America.
Barack Obama
Water is the basis of life and the blue arteries of the earth! Everything in the non-marine environment depends on freshwater to survive.
Sandra Postel
There was a time when black and navy blue suits were pretty much everything you saw. That has completely changed. People are wearing big checks, checks with browns and blues and shades of gray, and the scale is very large, and some of them are very bold with heavy contrasts.
Patrick Grant
If riding were all blue ribbons and bright lights, I would have quit long ago.
George H. Morris
Working on ‘NYPD Blue’ and ’24’, those two series, I did full runs on those. It’s great work, but everything has to align. The producers have to want you; the network has to want you; there has to be great writing; and it’s not as easy as it may appear to the outsiders to make all those things align.
Ricky Schroder
Blue staters tend to send liberal politicians to office, who then vote for bigger federal spending – even though a greater share of the money goes to the red states.
Stephen Moore
The first of all simple colours is White … We shall set down White for the representative of light, without which no colour can be seen; Yellow for the earth; Green for water; Blue for air; Red for fire; and Black for total darkness.
Leonardo da Vinci
It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress.
Monica Lewinsky
Few Americans born after the Civil War know much about war. Real war. War that seeks you out. War that arrives on your doorstep – not once in a blue moon, but once a month or a week or a day.
Nick Turse
Hatred and cark and care, what place have they / In yon blue liberality of heaven?.
Robert Browning
My blue eyes are my best feature.
Luke Goss
With ‘Mask,’ ‘Smooth Talk’ and ‘Blue Velvet,’ I loved the specific experiences so much. Each one was a specific filmmaker with a specific vision.
Laura Dern
I wake up in the morning and sometimes I just want to wear a T-shirt and blue jeans and now I have to force myself to do that, because I can’t care what people think, you know?
Hayley Williams
I don’t want you to cook my bread, I don’t want you to make my bed. I don’t want you to because I’m sad and blue, I just want to make love to you.
Willie Dixon
The sky was electric blue above the trees but the yard felt dark. Stephanie went to the edge of the lawn and sat her forehead on her knees. The grass and soil were still warm from the day. She wanted to cry but she couldn’t. The feeling was too deep.
Jennifer Egan
I wanted to be like my friends. I hung out with girls who had blue eyes and blond hair and I thought, “I want to look like them!”
Selena Gomez
There are certain songs that I like to listen to at certain times of the day. For example, first thing in the morning I love listening to “Flamenco Sketches” off of Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue.
Jon Foreman
What does it cost to lose those weeks, that light, the very nights in the year preferred over all others? Can you evade the dying of the brightness? Or do you evade only its warning? Where are you left if you miss the message the blue nights bring?
Joan Didion
Sometimes, when people use too much blue screen in movies, the actors don’t look credible, because they have their own opinion of what the thing will look like, and each person has a different opinion.
Michel Gondry
I wear mostly black Main Line or T… But the other day, the sun was shining so I wore blue jeans. It caused so much excitement in the office! People were literally coming up from the floor below and peering behind my desk saying; we hear you’re wearing blue jeans and we have to have a look
Alexander Wang
REVEILLE, n. A signal to sleeping soldiers to dream of battlefields no more, but get up and have their blue noses counted.
Ambrose Bierce
Let me peer out at the world through your lens. (Maybe I’ll shudder, or gasp, or tilt my head in a question.) Let me see how your blue is my turquoise and my orange is your gold. Suddenly binary stars, we have startling gravity. Let’s compare scintillation – let’s share starlight.
Naomi Shihab Nye
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.
Eleonora Duse
‘Dark Blue’ is ultimately a gritty crime drama, at its core. I don’t think that is ever going to change.
Dylan McDermott
My personality is that I’m a human being like everybody else, just a citizen and a blue collar guy.
Lee Greenwood
It’s not written in the Constitution or anything else…. Congress, just out of the clear blue sky, said the airwaves belong to the people, which means, in essence, that it belongs to Congress.
Adrian Cronauer
I think it is love of that blue vault of sky that becomes your playground if, and only if, you are a fighter pilot. You don’t understand it if you fly from A to B in straight and level, and merely climb and descend. You’re moving through the basement of that bolt of blue.
Robin Olds
Sydney in general is eclectic. You can be on that brilliant blue ocean walk in the morning and then within 20 minutes you can be in a completely vast suburban sprawl or an Italian or Asian suburb, and it’s that mix of people, it’s that melting pot of people that give it its vital personality.
Baz Luhrmann
A leader is not born out of the blue. You have to know the pulse of the people from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Gujarat to Guwahati. You have to relate yourself with them, and only then does one become a leader.
Sushma Swaraj
I met Sade! I performed ‘Blue Lights’ at one of Drake’s shows in London, and I met her backstage. She told me her son is a big fan. That was a moment when I was like, ‘Wow.’
Jorja Smith
It took me three weeks to write the ‘Rhapsody in Blue.’ I had always wanted to write something blue and Paul Whiteman inspired.
George Gershwin
All things are created twice; first mentally; then physically. The key to creativity is to begin with the end in mind, with a vision and a blue print of the desired result.
Stephen Covey
The Taj, the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Cracao Basilica and Polish church are some monuments that hold a special place in my memory.
In age of consumerism and materialism, I traffic in blue sky and colored air.
James Turrell
I had left the visible, physical blue at the door, outside, in the street. The real blue was inside, the blue of the profundity of space, the blue of my kingdom, of our kingdom!.. ..the immaterialisation of blue, the coloured space that can not be seen but which we impregnate ourselves with.
Yves Klein
I learned really valuable lessons from ‘Blue’s Clues.’ I’d repeat them every day. ‘You can do things. You are smart.’
Steve Burns
I’d like to be a geneticist to be honest, but there are limits to what I can do now. For my dream to come true I’d have to be 20 years old again, heading off to a blue chip university.
Adam Faith
Sweet May lies fresh before us, To life the young flowers leap, And through the Heaven’s blue o’er us The rosy cloudlets sweep.
Heinrich Heine
Before I go to meet my Maker, I want to use the salt left in my shaker. I want to find out if it’s true The Blue Danube is really blue, Before I kiss the world goodbye.
Howard Dietz
And whether this happiness lasted a hundred seconds or ten minutes, it was so far removed from time that it resembled every other genuine happiness as completely as one fluttering blue lycaenid butterfly resembles another.
Hermann Hesse
My Latin roots are very strong. All my life, because I’m blonde and blue-eyed, people who aren’t Hispanic can’t believe I am. And people who are Hispanic always think I’m not, because I don’t look like them. Being Latin is part of who I am and I bring that part to every role.
Cameron Diaz
Journalists say my music is “blue wave,” or “dreamy,” or “jangly-slacker jewel,” and none of it really makes sense to me.
Mac DeMarco
When we were babies, mum had to dress one of us in one colour, like blue and green, and she’d put a little mark on our hand or toe… she definitely had to sort us out.
Benji Madden
The pressure to be thin, which causes guilt and obsessiveness around food, is terrible and starts so early. For me, it started at sixteen when I left home and gained weight for the first time and was told by a slightly older boy, out of the blue, that I was “too plump.” The shock of that lasted a good long time.
Kate Christensen
When I tell her what I’m thinking and she tells me what she’s thinking, our each ideas jumping into the other’s head, like coulouring blue crayon on top of yellow that makes green.
Emma Donoghue
Why would anyone pick blue over pink? Pink is obviously a better colour.
Kanye West
There’s a certain time of day after sunset when people naturally seem to feel the urge to gather by a fire or a stove or a hibachi or another common source of heat and food, and hunker down together to eat and drink. Call it the blue hour.
Kate Christensen
I was raised in a very blue-collar family.
Jamie Moyer
I felt I was good in basketball but I wasn’t a blue-chip prospect.
Derrek Lee
I can promote until I am blue in the face, but ultimately nobody knows what makes a hit.
Christian Slater
Instead of the bright, blue sky of America, I am covered with the soft, grey fog of the Emerald Isle. I breathe, and lo! the chattel becomes a man.
Frederick Douglass
I have blue eyes, and before I knew anything about fashion – I’m talking about the second grade – I learned I would get a compliment if I wore a blue shirt.
B. J. Novak
I remember too, a distant bell…and stars that fell…like the rainout of the blue.
Johnny Mercer
We can still do a stop motion feature for about one-third of what it costs Pixar or DreamWorks or Blue Sky to make a feature. But nobody is interested in a film that cost $50 to 60 million with the potential to do $120 million. They want to risk big money to make huge money.
Henry Selick
A lot of the time when I go to church, people want to take pictures. They want you to sign autographs. So I don’t go all the time. I go once in a blue moon. Every once in a blue moon.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
I need you,” he said to her, this woman who’d fought for her own right to live her life free of limits, “to build me some remote detonation devices.” Amazing brown eyes shot with blue peering into his as she pressed her nose to his. “You always say the most romantic things.
Nalini Singh
There were a whole lot, I bought every blues record I could find, it wasn’t just one or two people. My vocal influences were Ray Charles and Bobby Blue Bland.
Johnny Winter
People should think about their closets like they think about a stock portfolio. There are things you want to invest in; you make those investments, and those are your blue chips. So you should invest in a great pair of jeans, in a great cashmere sweater.
Jennifer Hyman
I don’t say that I’m going to be like every other comic that’s blue, or gratuitous use of language. I do try to have my own standards: I don’t do everything the audience wants, and I do try to surprise them.
Comedy, such a lovely lady, she’ll pick you up, you your feeling blue.
Adam Sandler
Lord, I never seen blue hair on a black woman before or since. Leroy say you look like a cracker from outer space.
Kathryn Stockett
A lot of children remember seeing cartoons, ‘Pinocchio’ or ‘Bambi’ or something that breaks their heart. I remember seeing ‘The Blue Angel’ and it breaking my heart. It was the first time I realised there was an adult world – that adults could damage each other or destroy each other emotionally.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
October arrives in a swirl of fragrant blue leaf smoke, the sweetness of slightly frosted MacIntosh apples, and little hard acorns falling. We are in the midst of cool crisp days, purple mists, and Nature recklessly tossing her whole palette of dazzling tones through fields and woodlands.
Jean Hersey
I am earth, earth My heart’s love Bursts with hay and flowers. I am a lake of blue air In which my own appointed place Field and valley Stand reflected
Thomas Merton
When I first met Jeff Bezos back in the late 90s, the only automated thing in his office was a rotating fan, gently blowing across a pair of identical blue shirts he’d hung on a water pipe behind his desk.
Marc Randolph
When I wouldn’t leave home without my blue contacts or when I was bleaching my hair, I didn’t have the language to articulate that I was trying to assimilate to whiteness. If anything, I was trying to “look normal.”
Vivek Shraya
Forth from his dark and lonely hiding-place, (Portentous sight!) the owlet Atheism, sailing on obscene wings athwart the noon, drops his blue-fringed lids, and holds them close, and hooting at the glorious sun in Heaven, cries out, ”Where is it?”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
By being discontented, the spirit searches for ways to improve its condition and for a better channel for expressing itself. This sense of discontent is the engine that drives all creativity and innovation… Our blue moments are a necessary part of our human evolution.
Chin-Ning Chu
Being in the studio, it’s more of a controlled environment, where you can be Salvador Dali and sit back and look at the painting. And you can go, ‘Ah, you know what? Maybe a little bit more red over here…maybe add some blue over here.’ You can sit back and look at the painting.
Zakk Wylde
By modulating the amount of blue in our environment, we can help people to relax, or to be alert; to fall asleep, or to stay awake.
Rogier van der Heide
A little dark chocolate in small amounts often helps lift me out of those blue moments. When I walk into my favorite store on Union Street in San Francisco that sells high-quality chocolates from around the world, I feel like, well, a kid in a candy store.
Dean Ornish
Usually, I chalk Democratic dreams of a blue Texas to the same sort of thinking that brought us the inevitability of the coalition of the ascendant and 100% certainty that Donald Trump was going to lose.
Krystal Ball
Having talent is like having blue eyes. You don’t admire a man for the colour of his eyes. I admire a man for what he does with his talent.
Anthony Quinn
‘Red vs Blue’ as a show has evolved dramatically. It looks an entirely different show to what we started with, but the format of the show has changed so much over the years, too.
Burnie Burns
Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones it will always stay 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
Early violets blue and white Dying for their love of light.
Edwin Arnold
If entertainment ran grocery stores, we’d NEVER get oil cured olives or blue cheese, it would be JUST Coke.
Penn Jillette
So What or Kind of Blue were done in that era, the right hour, the right day. It’s over; it’s on the record.
Miles Davis
You cannot cover the 50 million new people Obama seeks to cover without more doctors and nurses. But the administration and even the Blue Dogs in the House have proposed nothing to add to the supply of medical services even as they plan vastly to increase the demand by covering new people.
Dick Morris
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke risin’ against that blue sky? Did you shout out in anger, in fear of your neighbor or did you just sit down and cry?..
Alan Jackson
I invite you to get out of the box, be yourself. If you have blue hair, pink, yellow; if you have a broken tooth; if you have other sexual preferences… be yourself. Fight for your happiness always.
J Balvin
There’s nothing honerable in a man who hides behind a blue woman’s hanky.
John Flanagan
But far, oh, far as passionate eye can reach, And long, ah, long as rapturous eye can cling, The world is mine: blue hill, still silver lake, Broad field, bright flower, and the long white road A gateless garden, and an open path: My feet to follow, and my heart to hold.
Edna St. Vincent Millay
My English was limited to vacationing and not really engaging with Americans. I knew ‘shopping’ and ‘eating’ English – I could say ‘blue sweater,’ ‘creme brulee,’ and ‘Caesar salad,’ – so I came here thinking I spoke English.
Salma Hayek
If you don’t work near a water cooler and hanker for the company of fellow natural history enthusiasts, ‘The Blue Planet II Podcast’ has Emily Knight and Becky Ripley enthusing infectiously about and delving deeper into the most recent episode.
David Hepworth
Heavens, how charming it is! There is now in the sky only the soft vaporous color of pale citron – the last reflection of the sun which plunges into the dark blue of the night, going from green tones to a pale turquoise of an unheard-of fineness and a fluid delicacy quite indescribable.
Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot
Urban Fantasy is a subgenre pretty much designed for teenagers. It’s pretty twee, but I adore it. I’ve been trying to come up with an Urban Fantasy comic ever since I’d read the Nancy Collins ‘Sonja Blue’ series years ago.
Ted Naifeh
It’s always an uphill battle. You know, I’m a Republican in Maryland. This is the bluest of the blue.
Bob Ehrlich
I’m a doofus from the Valley, a blue-collar guy.
Adam Carolla
Calling Batman ‘the Dark Knight’ is like calling Papa Smurf ‘the Blue Patriarch’:you’re not fooling anyone.
Charlie Brooker
Up until ‘Blue Shift,’ ‘Half-Life’ characters were repeating, expendable entities. In ‘Blue Shift,’ important named partners will work with you over the course of several levels and objectives in order to overcome the hazards of the plot.
Randy Pitchford
My eyes are vague blue, like the sky, and change all the time; they are indiscriminate but fleeting, entirely specific and disloyal, so that no one trusts me. I am always looking away. Or again at something after it has given me up.
Frank O’Hara
My husband was very special and very funny and outspoken, and he would have a black and blue every so often because under the table, I’d say, ‘Don’t say that!’
Blythe Danner
Describing one competitive advantage of IBM’s Deep Blue chess computer. It has no fear.
Yasser Seirawan
So I sit there kicked my heels, thinking about New Orleans, and watching a morbid blue-bottle fly attempt to commit suicide by butting his head against the windowpane.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
They said, ‘You have a blue guitar, / You do not play things as they are.’ / The man replied, ‘Things as they are / Are changed upon the blue guitar.’
Wallace Stevens
In the desert the most loved waters, like a lover’s name, are carried blue in your hands, enter your throat. One swallows absence.
Michael Ondaatje
Gathering Blue’ was a separate book. I wanted to explore what a society might become after a catastrophic world event. Only at the end did I realize I could make it connect to ‘The Giver.
Lois Lowry
Because you see when a new baby laughs for the first time a new fairy is born, and as there are always new babies there are always new fairies. They live in nests on the tops of trees; and the mauve ones are boys and the white ones are girls, and the blue ones are just little sillies who are not sure what they are.
James M. Barrie
I love Mayberry! The people here are wonderful! When I’m at the grocery store people come up and hug me. Friends pick me up and take me for rides on the Blue Ridge Parkway and I always love that.
Betty Lynn
In my early performing days, I played gigs under the pseudonym Whitey McFearsun. I painted my face blue, wore crimson lipstick, and strung on some tight silver latex pants.
Shawn Amos
My father had a series of blue-collar jobs and never made more than $20,000 a year. When I was seven, he got injured on a job. That was a very important point – because of the injury, he couldn’t walk, and the company he was working for did not pay him. There was no compensation. So there was no money and no food.
Howard Schultz
Now Mitt is not a perfect candidate. He has a number of problems. It’s hard for him, for blue collar families like mine to identify with him. It’s hard for economic conservatives to identify with him. He needs to do more to reach out to Latinos.
George Pataki
My dad was a mechanic, and I have great style memories of him. He wore, every single day: a blue chambray shirt, Levi’s 501s, and Red Wing boots. And that certainly wasn’t fashionable at the time; it was basically the opposite. And he wore these horn rim glasses that were very Sol Moscot.
Nick Wooster
It was a source of shame for my family that I was in rock and roll, which is so blue-collar. It just isn’t done. And I felt it, too.
Liz Phair
If there is nothing new on the earth, still the traveler always has a resource in the skies. They are constantly turning a new page to view. The wind sets the types on this blue ground, and the inquiring may always read a new truth there.
Henry David Thoreau
I’m good in summer. My birthday is in summer. I don’t like it when it’s too hot, but, you know, blue skies, I think people genuinely loosen up a bit, and it’s nicer.
George Ezra
An honest cop still can’t find a place to go and complain without fear of recrimination. The blue wall will always be there because the system supports it.
Frank Serpico
We all have one idea of what the color blue is, but pressed to describe it specifically, there are so many ways: the ocean, lapis lazuli, the sky, someone’s eyes. Our definitions are as different as we are ourselves.
Sarah Dessen
The witchlight made his skin paler, his eyes more intently blue. They were the color of the water in the North Atlantic, where the ice drifted on its blue-black surface like the snow clinging to the dark glass pane of a window.
Cassandra Clare
All those golden autumn days the sky was full of wings. Wings beating low over the blue water of Silver Lake, wings beating high in the blue air far above it . . . bearing them all away to the green fields in the South.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
‘Blue Valentine’ was a really sad movie, but I loved the moments when they’re discovering each other for the first time.
Sam Heughan
Hey, look — Harry’s got a Weasley sweater, too!” Fred and George were wearing blue sweaters, one with a large yellow F on it, the other a G. “Harry’s is better than ours, though,” said Fred, holding up Harry’s sweater. “She obviously makes more of an effort if you’re not family.
J. K. Rowling
My experiences remind me that it’s those black clouds that make the blue skies even more beautiful.
Kelly Clarkson
I met a guy, very exotic to me – he was blonde with blue eyes – and I just had a fling that turned out to be love. I moved to San Francisco to spend a week with him and get him out of my system; I’m still here 26 years later.
Isabel Allende
Before me, everything was black or navy blue or gray or brown or beige, things like that, for daytime. I began using shocking pink and ice blue and all kinds of bright colors. And I dyed furs.
Elsa Schiaparelli
Who’d give up sunny California for the grey old Earls Court Road? I’m looking out at blue skies and the mountains and trees, and it’s so beautiful.
Patrick Macnee
Literature as a whole is not an aggregate of exhibits with red and blue ribbons attached to them, like a cat-show, but the range of articulate human imagination as it extends from the height of imaginative heaven to the depth of imaginative hell.
Northrop Frye
His hand is cool on my cheek as he paints a tear beneath my left eye, dark blue and swollen with sorrow.
Jodi Picoult
With Jinkx Monsoon, I strive to make her pretty and likable and have this bubbly, lovely personality. But then she can also be the most crass, out of the blue, kooky character.
Jinkx Monsoon
I was ten. I had noticed something was weird earlier in the day, but I knew from commercials that one’s menstrual period was a blue liquid that you poured like laundry detergent onto maxi pads to test their absorbency. This wasn’t blue, so… I ignored it for a few hours.
Tina Fey
As strange as it may sound, our experience of a Chagall painting actually depends to some extent on whether our language has a word for blue.
Guy Deutscher
Blue Ivy can say she knows who her great-great-great-great-grandfather is. How many people can say that?
Mathew Knowles
I have got a running stream of love you see. So no matter what stages.. they put us through, we’ll never be blue.
Bob Marley
He made a weak attempt to look innocent, but I knew better. “Should I guess how many concealed weapons you have or should I strip search you?” “A strip search is the only way to be absolutely certain.” Valek’s deep blue eyes danced with delight.
Maria V. Snyder
My favorite NBA team are the houston rockets and favorite college team are the duke blue devils.
Dante Hall
I’m on a frosting sailboat, tossed around by blue-green waves, the deck shifting beneath my feet.
Suzanne Collins
I was actually hoping the Royals would pick me. It was the main team I wanted to go to. Their colors are Royal blue and that’s my favorite color.?
Zack Greinke
Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight.
John Ruskin
Although knowledge of how things work is sufficient to allow manipulation of nature, what humans really want to know is why things work. Children don’t ask how the sky is blue. They ask why the sky is blue.
Michael Crichton
The deeper the blue becomes, the more strongly it calls man towards the infinite, awakening in him a desire for the pure and, finally, for the supernatural… The brighter it becomes, the more it loses its sound, until it turns into silent stillness and becomes white.
Wassily Kandinsky
In every seed to breathe a flower, In every drop of dew To reverence a cloister star Within the distant blue; To wait the promise of the how, Despite the cloud between, Is Faith-the fervid evidence Of loneliness unseen.
John B. Tabb
Starry, starry night, flaming flowers that brightly blaze, swirling clouds in violet haze reflect Vincent’s eyes of china blue.
Don McLean
Gansey had no idea how old Blue was. He knew she’d just finished eleventh grade. Maybe she was sixteen. Maybe she was eighteen. Maybe she was twenty-two and just very short and remedial.
Maggie Stiefvater
Just as I lay back, she sat up. I sat up, and she flopped back down. Awkward. That was my every move when it came to her. Now we were both lying down, staring up at the blue sky.
Kami Garcia
When we distributed the paper and crayons, they were fighting over the blue crayon. Everyone wanted to start with the blue, and that was the water. One drawing shows the trees under water. I was really moved.
Connie Sellecca
I grew up on a pig farm in southeast Nebraska. When I started doing the Blue Collar Tour, I thought it was kind of funny because I faked my accent, so everybody thought I lived in an apartment somewhere. But I grew up on a pig farm.
Larry the Cable Guy
Vernon Reis opened the world to me through books. He taught me that while I was physically firmly planted in blue-collar Auburn, Washington in the 50s and early 60s, intellectually I could go anywhere, explore anything, and sample exciting new ideas simply by opening a book.
Christine Gregoire
I will die like a true-blue rebel. Don’t waste any time in mourning – organize.
Joe Hill
I have broken the blue boundary of color limits, come out into the white; beside me comrade-pilots swim in this infinity.
Kazimir Malevich
Roses are red,
violets are blue,
I’m sick of this poem,
you probably are too.
Anne Mazer

Robert Collier
An experience that shaped me happened early in my TV career when I filmed in Mozambique, Angola and Bangladesh for ‘Blue Peter’ and Comic Relief. Places with extreme poverty. When you see that first-hand as a young person, you take it with you for life.
Konnie Huq
Fashion brings out what you are inside. A lot of people think it’s got to be blue jeans, a Black coat, three inch heels. But it doesn’t have to be like that. I enjoy just going for it
Nicola Roberts
You can work out until you’re blue in the face and run a thousand miles a week, but none of it will matter if you aren’t eating well.
Rachel Hollis

Federico Garcia Lorca
I always relate respectfully with blue-collar people.
Jayson Williams
When that fire hit your ass, it will sober your ass up quick! I saw something, I went, Well, that’s a pretty blue. You know what? That looks like… FIRE! Fire is inspirational. They should use it in the Olympics, because I ran the 100 in 4.3.
Richard Pryor
There was no one color that could paint Lena Duchannes. She was a red sweater and a blue sky, a gray wind and a silver sparrow, a black curl escaping from behind her ear.
Kami Garcia
It will be readily admitted that brown tints have never coursed beneath our skin; it will be discovered that yellow shines forth in our flesh, that red blazes, and that green, blue and violet dance upon it with untold charms, voluptuous and caressing.
Umberto Boccioni
As she came closer to him she noticed that there was a clean fresh scent of heather and grass and leaves about him, almost as if he were made of them. She liked it very much and when she looked into his funny face with the red cheeks and round blue eyes she forgot that she had felt shy.
Frances Hodgson Burnett
Everything factual is, in a sense, theory. The blue of the sky exhibits the basic laws of chromatics. There is no sense in looking for something behind phenomena: they are theory.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A lot of times, really wonderful things that have come my way have come basically out of the blue.
Stacey D’Erasmo
Winter, a bad guest, sitteth with me at home; blue are my hands with his friendly handshaking
Friedrich Nietzsche
There are so many issues in our oceans – like the near extinction of blue fin tuna – that should be taken more seriously worldwide.
Heston Blumenthal
Go to sleep, baby,Mama will sing. Of blue butterflies, and dragonfly wings. Moonlight and sunbeams, raiments so fine. Silver and gold, for baby of mine. Go to sleep, baby. Sister will tell, of wolves and of lambs, and demons who fell.-Pierce’s Lullaby Kim Harrison (Black Magic Sanction)
Kim Harrison
I really never even seriously considered a book but a few years ago someone approached me out of the blue and I said I would think about it.
Mark McNairy
I think ‘Dark Blue’ came to me while I was doing a project in London. I read it, and the character immediately popped out at me.
Omari Hardwick
One must go through life, be it red or blue, stark naked and accompanied by the music of a subtle fisherman, prepared at all times for a celebration.
Francis Picabia
There are many reasons why I hate college football. The 4-hour games drone on longer than Steve Lyons during the American League playoffs. The ever-expanding season threatens to creep into early July. Boise, Idaho, hosts a bowl game. And it’s played on blue artificial turf.
Stephen Rodrick
Pink is female – but why? Are girls any more pink than boys? Are boys any more blue than girls? It’s something that has been sold to us, mostly so other things can be sold to us.
David Levithan
The fundamental importance of the subject of molecular diffraction came first to be recognized through the theoretical work of the late Lord Rayleigh on the blue light of the sky, which he showed to be the result of the scattering of sunlight by the gases of the atmosphere.
C. V. Raman
Russell’s books should be bound in two colours, those dealing with mathematical logic in red – and all students of philosophy should read them; those dealing with ethics and politics in blue – and no one should be allowed to read them.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
We must make sure that when someone sees the Blue Flag, she or he can say, ‘I am protected.’
Antonio Guterres
It’s important that all my friends have verified Twitter accounts. The blue checkmark makes me feel comfortable and like I’m friends with a legit, high-quality person. I also prefer friends with ridiculously long usernames.
Jonah Peretti
You know, I got the third most uninsured district in the whole state of Texas, probably number nine in the whole country. As a Blue Dog, I’m also looking at the cost. So, I have got a very unique district.
Henry Cuellar
Where are your combing seas, your blue water, your rollers, your breakers, your whales, or your waterspouts, and your endless motion, in this bit of a forest, child?
James F. Cooper
Im completely gobsmacked by the Rookie Blue fans.
Charlotte Sullivan
My mom was the picture of the blue-collar mom: Two and three and four jobs to make sure that me and my sister never needed, that was her thing
How will you know the difficulties of being human, if you are always flying off to blue perfection? Where will you plant your grief seeds? Workers need ground to scrape and hoe, not the sky of unspecified desire.
I’ve written some songs that are pretty scary, but ‘Jessica,’ ‘Ramblin’ Man,’ and ‘Blue Sky’ are happy songs. That’s the way I wrote them: have-fun tunes to make you feel good.
Dickey Betts
News for the godless: religion is inescapable. there has never been a human society without some form of worship. And don’t point to communist societies like the Soviet Union – they worshipped blue jeans.
Stephen Colbert
I wanted so badly to be in a famous band, and it was not happening. I played drums with different bands and with the Blue Man Group in Chicago, but I definitely felt like, ‘Wow, I did not picture my life being like this.’
Fred Armisen
Since I’ve left ‘Blue Peter’ I’ve presented all sorts of different things. I’ve done a music show, for instance, and ‘Blue Peter’ had music on it. I’ve done a politics show, but on ‘Blue Peter’ I interviewed the Prime Minister. I’ve done travel stuff where I’ve gone abroad, but ‘Blue Peter’ had that within it as well.

Whenever I go back home, I make sure I can attend a Blue Jackets game.

The true person is
Not anyone in particular;
But like the deep blue color
Of the limitless sky,
It is everyone,
Everywhere in the world.
Larry the Cable Guy
Another thing that I don’t like to do is show too much how it goes. I do it once in a blue moon. Sometimes there are lessons when I don’t pick up a violin at all.
Itzhak Perlman
And sometimes through the mirror blue The knights come riding two and two.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Bravery is a complicated thing to describe. You can’t say it’s three feet long and two feet wide and that it weighs four hundred pounds or that it’s colored bright blue or that it sounds like a piano or that it smells like roses. It’s a quality, not a thing.
Mickey Mantle
If you took a blue spruce tree and planted it in the desert, it would obviously perish. How do we forget that we too are living systems, and each of us have unique environments, needs, and conditions within which we flourish or wither?
Dawna Markova
The first time Stuart Broad walked into the dressing room, with his flowing blond hair, striking blue eyes and perfect figure, I thought: ‘My God, she’s beautiful.’
James Anderson
Whenever you are blue or lonely or stricken by some humiliating thing you did, the cure and the hope is in caring about other people.
Diane Sawyer
The further jazz moves away from the stark blue continuum and the collective realities of Afro-American and American life, the more it moves into academic concert-hall lifelessness, which can be replicated by any middle class showing off its music lessons.
Amiri Baraka
I will shut down Instagram so girls can’t use filters into tricking us that they are that pretty; you’re eyes aren’t that blue, and you don’t glow.
Daniel Tosh
I’ve never been one for color theory or color wheels or undertone rules or anything like that. I don’t know if my red lipstick ‘should’ be more blue or more orange.
Emily Weiss
I can go all over the world with just three outfits: a blue blazer and gray flannel pants, a gray flannel suit, and black tie.
Pierre Cardin
You can tell it’s good if you light it and a blue flame comes up; that means it’s good moonshine and it won’t make you go blind.
Johnny Knoxville
People in red states and blue states can agree that clean air is better than dirty air; therefore we should use clean energy where we can.
Van Jones
When you look up. Do you see the blue sky of what might be? Or the darkness of what will never be? Do you see me?
Kami Garcia
I come from a democratic world. My world is moderate Democrats, Reagan-type Democrats if you want, the blues or whatever you call them, the Blue Dogs. That’s been my world, historically.
Carl Paladino
Maura whirled towards Blue. “Blue, if you ever see that man again, you just walk the other way.” “No,” Calla corrected. “Kick him in the nuts. Then run the other way.
Maggie Stiefvater
The Ethiopians say that their gods are snub-nosed and black the Thracians that theirs have light blue eyes and red hair.

Gavin Pretor-Pinney
But never have I been a blue calm sea
I have always been a storm.
Stevie Nicks
I think a lot of people think I was born in a blue suit, on the David Brinkley show. And that isn’t me. I am much more that kid who grew up in South St. Louis, in a very modest household, with a simple background with parents who didn’t get through high school.
Dick Gephardt
What I’m wearing changes everything about how the show goes. If I’m wearing blue jeans and flannel, it’s going to be a country show, and I’m going to get my twang on. But if I’m wearing a flapper dress, fringe or sequins, I’m rocking out, Tina Turner style.
Grace Potter
I never fry a doughnut! If you want a doughnut, go and buy one once in a blue moon. It’s about everything in moderation.
Mary Berry
Botswana is also the only country in the world with a colour in its flag meant to represent rain (a sort of blue-grey). Not many people know this.
Terry Pratchett
My garden is a forest ledge
Which older forest s bound;
The banks slope down to the blue lake-edge,
Then plunge to depths profound!
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The old cathedrals are good, but the great blue dome that hangs over everything is better.
Thomas Carlyle
When I was very young, there was a lot of music at home, mostly jazz. I was walking around singing and pretending I was in bands from a very young age. But the first song that was really personal to me was ‘Blue Suede Shoes’.
Nile Rodgers
When I paint green, it doesn’t mean grass; when I paint blue, it doesn’t mean sky.
Henri Matisse
Give me the clear blue sky above my head, and the green turf beneath my feet, a winding road before me, and a three hours’ march to dinner – and then to thinking!
Henry Hazlitt
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

William Carlos Williams
I’m not too modest of a person. I’ve got a pretty blue sense of humor.
Michelle Monaghan
The sea was our main entertainment. When company came, we set them before it on rugs, with thermoses and sandwiches and colored umbrellas, as if the water – blue, green, gray, navy or silver as it might be – were enough to watch.
Sylvia Plath
We’re just recycled history machines, cavemen in faded blue jeans.
Jimmy Buffett
It was an impressive achievement, of course, and a human achievement by the members of the IBM team, but Deep Blue was only intelligent the way your programmable alarm clock is intelligent. Not that losing to a $10 million alarm clock made me feel any better.
Garry Kasparov
Once in a blue moon, an entire industry is a good short.
Steve Eisman
Whenever you go out to eat you gotta get the appetizer. ‘Cause the appetizer’s just an excuse for an extra meal. You’re always like “Lets see, I will start with the 80 buffalo wings…and do you have a low-cal blue cheese? ‘Cause I don’t wanna fill up too much.”
Jim Gaffigan
I laugh, and it was amazing! I swear I could see my laughter floating around me like puffy things you blow off a dandelion, only instead of being white it was birthday-cake-frosting-blue. wow! Who knew hitting my head and passing out would be so much fun? I wonder if this was what it was like to be high.
P. C. Cast
The skies were blue when I was coming up. I want my kids to have the same opportunity, if not better, than I had.
Kevin O’Leary
Competition like that seen between Blue Origin and SpaceX is key to rapid progress in space.
Bruce Pittman
The ideal woman to me would be the gun-toting moll. Someone who is true blue and ready to face the world. Open to ideas and suggestion, not stubborn and closed minded.
Anton Szandor LaVey
I had an ethnic preference, if you will, for the warm weather, coming from Chennai. So I finally said, ‘Look, can I move to California?’ because every time I come here, it would be in the 70s or 80s, and there would be beautiful blue sky and warm.
Ram Shriram
Each new development starts from something else. It does not come out of a blue sky. You make use of that which has already entered the mind…. That is the real reason for accumulating knowledge.
Robert Crawford
You can tell my mood by my makeup. When I’m depressed, it’s really dark. Then I’ll do super-dumb happy makeup. Like, I’ll do one eye electric blue and one smoky brown, and you won’t even figure it out until you’re talking to me – then you’re like, ‘Whoa!’
Kat Von D
Took two drags off the blunts, and started breaking down the flag:
The blue is for the Crips, the red is for the Bloods,
The whites for the cops, and the stars come from the clubs
Or the slugs that ignite, through the night,
By the dawn early light, why is sons fighting for the stripe?
We are each of us like our little blue planet, hung in black space, upheld by nothing but our mutual reassurances, our loving lies.
John Updike
I live with romance in my brain. I’m a true-blue Cancerian like that.
Priyanka Chopra
You can’t kick me down, I’m already on the ground. No, you can’t, but you couldn’t catch me anyhow.Blue skies, but the sun isn’t comming out, no. Today, it is like I’m under a heavy cloud.” Avril Lavigne (Runaway)
Avril Lavigne
O’ the blue-bodied cowherd – ever playful in love and war. Don’t you fail to see the immensity of his wisdom and light.
Jaggi Vasudev
Everybody needs to show respect to each others’ ways and the cultural life that you get on this planet. Don’t get caught up on ‘I’m brown, black, white, red, blue, whatever.’ You gotta ask, what were you called before 1492? All these names we’re using now are just an illusion made to keep us fighting each other.
Afrika Bambaataa
Her fingers moved among barnacles and mussels, blue-black, sharp-edged. Neon red starfish were limp Dalis on the rocks, surrounded by bouquets of stinging anemones and purple bursts of spiny sea urchins.
Janet Fitch
Years later Magnus would return to London and Camille Belcourt’s side, and find it not all that he had dreamed. Years later another desperate Herondale boy with blue, blue eyes would come to his door, shaking with the cold of the rain and his own wretchedness, and this one Magnus would be able to help.
Cassandra Clare
Not a breath of air stirred over the free and open prairie; the clouds were like light piles of cotton; and where the blue sky was visible, it wore a hazy and languid aspect.
Francis Parkman
I lie in an early bed thinking late thoughts, waiting for the black to replace my blue. I do not struggle in your web because it was my aim to get caught. But daddy long legs I feel that I’m finally growing weary of waiting to be consumed by you.
Fiona Apple
As a New Yorker you can’t help but be proud of the fact that so much music and culture started here. Punk rock, jazz, hip-hop and house music started here, George Gershwin debuted ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ here; the Velvet Underground are from New York.
It took Cianfrance 12 years to bring ‘Blue Valentine’ to the screen after he first conceived it. He found Gosling and Williams early on, and they hung in there with him. The film finally premiered at Sundance 2010, then screened at Cannes and the Toronto Film Festival before landing in theaters in December.
Katie Hafner
Everything that came out of Europe, every blue-eyed thing, is already an American. And as long as you and I have been over here, we aren’t Americans yet.
Malcolm X
The pale stars are gone! For the sun, their swift shepherd, To their folds them compelling, In the depths of the dawn, Hastes, in meteor-eclipsing array, and the flee Beyond his blue dwelling, As fawns flee the leopard.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Far clouds of feathery gold, Shaded with deepest purple, gleam Like islands on a dark blue sea.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Because Blue Peter can get you access to places – if you go to somewhere like Nasa, you don’t just see what most people see, you can get a lot of behind the scenes access. You can talk to an astronaut.
Konnie Huq
Merripen, despite his fear of heights, had often climbed a ladder to wash the second floor window for her. He had wanted her view of the outside world to be clear. He had said the sky should always be blue for her.
Lisa Kleypas
I bleed Dodger blue and when I die, I’m going to the big Dodger in the sky.
Tommy Lasorda
Most whale photos you see show whales in this beautiful blue water – it’s almost like space.
Brian Skerry
I fear I must agree,” Magnus murmured. He pressed a hand over his heart and his new peacock-blue waistcoast. “I strive to find some respect in my heart for you, but alas! It seems an impossible quest.
Cassandra Clare
Snowstorms may yet whiten fields and gardens, high winds may howl about the trees and chimneys, but the little blue heralds persistently proclaim from the orchard and the garden that the spring procession has begun to move.
Neltje Blanchan
I did a dance sequence in my second short film, which was my best short film, called ‘Hairway to the Stars,’ and I think Chris Wink, the founder of Blue Man Group, was in that. It’s a black-and-white dance sequence. We were Glorious Food waiters together.
David O. Russell
One of the small joys that’s easy to miss in London is the blue plaques on buildings. These are put up to commemorate the famous on the houses they lived in.
A. A. Gill
When I am disgusted by certain American politicians, I fantasize moving away to Finland – a country in which I have worked a little, and which I see as a pure blue and green place of unpolluted lakes, peaceful forests, and pristine social-democratic values.
Martha Nussbaum
Several groups have information evaluating seafood sustainability. I wrote the first such guide, and seafood pocket-guides and detailed evaluations of different seafoods are available for download from the group I founded, Blue Ocean Institute.
Carl Safina
I dropped my pants in a tattoo parlor in Amsterdam. I woke up in a waterbed with this funky-looking dragon with a blue tongue on my hip. I realized I made a mistake, so a few months later I got a cross to cover it. When my pants hang low, it looks like I’m wearing a dagger!
Angelina Jolie
Avoid restaurants with names that are improbable descriptions, such as the Purple Goose, the Blue Kangaroo or the Quilted Orangutan.
Calvin Trillin
To me, the responsibility of an actor is to recreate humanity honestly. I never feel like an actor, I always look at it from a blue collar perspective.
Michael Jai White
Half the shows on Comedy Central are just multi-cam blue sets, and they kind of look like game shows from the ’90s. It’s like, ‘Why do such a bland corporate aesthetic when the sky’s the limit with what you can do?’
Eric Andre
Perhaps blue, red, and yellow strike the mind more forcibly from there not being any great union between them, as martial music, which is intended to rouse the nobler passions.
Joshua Reynolds
US presidents can make all the commitments and declarations they want until they are blue in the face, in the Muslim world they will always be perceived as partisan.
