Creating exciting and effective design is, in large part, about understanding the subtleties and power of color and how it can work for you--and sometimes against you. (Boyle)

Of all the forms of non-verbal communication, color is the most instantaneous method of conveying messages and meanings. (Eiseman)

It's not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or
yellow or gold--or something much more colorful like that. (Kermit the Frog)

The color is repellent, almost revolting; a smouldering unclean yellow, strangely faded by the slow-turning sunlight. It is a dull yet lurid orange in some places, a sickly sulphur tint in others. (Gilman, The Yellow Wallpaper)
