"Hodge and His Masters"
Richard Jefferies
I formed the idea that this small colony of about a dozen birds had been long established at that place, and that the change in their colouring was a direct result of the unusual conditions in which they existed, where there was no shade and shelter of trees and bushes, and they were perpetually exposed for generations to the full light of the wide open sky.

W.H. Hudson
The effect depends a good deal on atmosphere and weather: on a day of flying clouds and a blue sky, with a brilliant sunshine on the vast building after a shower, the colouring is most beautiful.

Famous quotes with Colouring

  • Biologically, I'm lucky - an angular face and dark colouring which shows up well on camera.
    Robert Carlyle
  • I want to know what they look like, their height, and colouring, physique and speech pattens.
    Colleen McCullough
  • Facts must be distorted, relevant circumstances concealed, and a picture presented which by its crude colouring will persuade the ignorant people that their Government is blameless, their cause is righteous, and that the indisputable wickedness of the enemy has been proved beyond question. A moment's reflection would tell any reasonable person that such obvious bias cannot possibly represent the truth. But the moment's reflection is not allowed; lies are circulated with great rapidity. The unthinking mass accept them and by their excitement sway the rest.
    Arthur Ponsonby
  • …he had to admit to a faint admiration (faint as angostura colouring gin and water)
    Anthony Burgess

The is the better poem, simple, truthful, noble, stirring, a proper start for the literature of a fighting people.
    John Barbour
