“Color is crucial in painting, but it is very hard to talk about.

“If one says ‘red’ – the name of color – and there are fifty people listening, it can be expected that there will be fifty reds in their minds. And one can be sure that all these reds will be very different.” – Josef Albers

33 Colorful Quotes and Pictures

Here’s something you might not know about me: I love bright colors (you didn’t notice?!). Ages ago when I worked in an office, an employee from another department who was looking for me described me as “the woman with the bright colors.”

She found me 😉

“Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8 color boxes, but what you're really looking for are the 64 color boxes with the sharpeners on the back."

Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8 color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64 color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64 color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s okay though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8 color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation. So when I meet someone who’s an 8 color type… I’m like, hey girl, Magenta! and she’s like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, no I want Magenta!” ~John Mayer

It’s all in the shades, tints, and combos!

“The downfall of the attempts of governments and leaders to unite mankind is found in this- in the wrong message that we should see everyone as the same. This is the root of the failure of harmony. Because the truth is, we should not all see everyone as the same! We are not the same! We are made of different colours and we have different cultures. We are all different! But the key to this door is to look at these differences, respect these differences, learn from and about these differences, and grow in and with these differences. We are all different. We are not the same. But that's beautiful. And that's okay.In the quest for unity and peace, we cannot blind ourselves and expect to be all the same. Because in this, we all have an underlying belief that everyone should be the same as us at some point. We are not on a journey to become the same or to be the same. But we are on a journey to see that in all of our differences, that is what makes us beautiful as a human race, and if we are ever to grow, we ought to learn and always learn some more.”

People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and its ends, but to me it's quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment.

Orhan Pamuk

“I hear the question upon your lips: What is it to be a colour?

Colour is the touch of the eye, music to the deaf, a word out of the darkness. Because I’ve listened to souls whispering – like the susurrus of the wind – from book to book and object to object for tens or thousands of years, allow me to say that my touch resembles the touch of angels. Part of me, the serious half, calls out to your vision while the mirthful half sours through the air with your glances.

I’m so fortunate to be red! I’m fiery. I’m strong. I know men take notice of me and that I cannot be resisted.

I do not conceal myself: For me, delicacy manifests itself neither in weakness nor in subtlety, but through determination and will. So, I draw attention to myself. I’m not afraid of other colours, shadows, crowds or even of loneliness. How wonderful it is to cover a surface that awaits me with my own victorious being! Wherever I’m spread, I see eyes shine, passions increase, eyebrows rise and heartbeats quicken. Behold how wonderful it is to live! Behold how wonderful to see. I am everywhere. Life begins with and returns to me. Have faith in what I tell you.”

If you love somebody set them free …if they come back with art supplies it was meant to be

When you said we could be friends with benefits ….I thought you owned an art shop

creativity is not a competition

I need food and water to survive and coloring to live

Good Morning – Let the coloring begin

Love is …sharing my art supplies

Quotations:  Crayons, Coloring,
Colored Pencils, Chalk, & Coloring Books



Welcome! I've had a shoebox full of crayons and have loved to color since I was a little girl, and I still do — yes, now, even into my 40s! I put together this page about crayons, colored pencils, and coloring years ago, but now the craziest thing has happened — a trend in adult coloring books. Personally, I still prefer the little kiddie ones, or to simply draw my own wild creations, but it's cool that people are taking the time to add a little creativity into their lives. Grab your favorite colors and de‑stress! See also:Color, Blue, Brown, Gray, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, Yellow  —ღ Terri,October 2015


Give crayons. Adults are disturbingly impoverished of these magical dream sticks. ~Dr. SunWolf, @WordWhispers, tweet, 2009, professorsunwolf.com


Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a coloured pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling. ~G.K. Chesterton, "On Lying in Bed," Tremendous Trifles, 1909


Coloring outside the lines is a fine art. ~Kim Nance


...oleaginous sticks of pleasure... ~Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, 1986  [describing Crayola® crayons —tg]


A box of new crayons! Now they're all pointy. Lined up in order. Bright and perfect! Soon they'll be a bunch of ground-down, rounded indistinguishable stumps, missing their wrappers and smudged with other colors. Sometimes life seems unbearably tragic. ~Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes, 1995


If you're ever in a jam, a crayon scrunched up under your nose makes a good pretend mustache. ~"Phil's-osophy" by Phil Dunphy, Modern Family, "Schooled," 2012, written by Steven Levitan and Dan O'Shannon  [S4, E2]


After eating a very big piece of cake, Desdemona decides she needs some quiet time. She will make magic with color. ~Patty Gannon, Desdemona and the Eggs, 2011  [By the by, in case you were wondering, it's extra-rich double dark chocolate cake! —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]


I'm protesting adulthood—
in my blanket fort, coloring.

Never invest in any idea you can't illustrate with a crayon. ~Peter Lynch


Life is about using the whole box of crayons. ~RuPaul, unverified


Actually... all education is self-education. A teacher is only a guide, to point out the way, and no school, no matter how excellent, can give you an education... What you receive is like the outlines in a child's coloring book. You must fill in the colors yourself. ~Louis L'Amour, The Lonesome Gods, 1983


Artists are just children who refuse to put down their crayons. ~Al Hirschfeld, unverified


Life lesson from the nursery: Broken crayons can still color. ~Author unknown


Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A Beauty Bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air — explode softly — and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth — boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either — not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination. ~Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, 1986


The handwriting on the wall means the grandchildren found the crayons. ~Author unknown


And in our painting books we spread
Pools of yellow, blue, and red —
      Carefully,
Though it doesn't matter
Terribly much unless we spatter.
~Harry Behn (1898–1973), "Coloring," The Little Hill, 1949


I love crayons — especially new crayons with no broken tips. I love how they smell — and how smooth they feel between my fingers. I love imagining what marvelous pictures the crayons will create. But what I love most of all are the colors — so many colors. ~Mary Wince


Biographical Sketch, In Fugitive Crayons, of Horace Walpole, Earl of Orford  ~John Pinkerton, 1799


My childhood smells like a box of Crayola crayons. ~Terri Guillemets


I've never liked crayons very much. They just don't have any flavor at all. ~Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes, 1988  [Calvin —tg]


Crayons today are more widely used in elementary art programs than any other medium. Indeed, they have become such an accepted part of the classroom scene in the last fifty years that most students are unaware of the part crayons have played in the history of art beginning centuries ago. The was crayon has a distinguished history of use by great artists from Phidias to Picasso, and, today, crayons just like the ones children color with in schools are being used by artists in the fine art and commercial fields in ever increasing numbers. The use of wax as an artist's material goes back to the golden age of Greek art... Sometime during the fifteenth century, artists began to mold pigments and binders into colored sticks or "crayons." ~Reynolds Girdler, Jr., "Crayons in the History of the Arts," in Art Education, 1967


[T]he colored pencil. The day we received our first full box of assorted colors we felt grown-up, the passage from baby status to childhood was complete. The broken wax crayon stubbles were immediately thrown out to make way for the more elegant and "mature" pencils. ~Bernard Aimé Poulin (b.1945), The Complete Colored Pencil Book, 2011


If you're traveling with two young kids in the back seat, it isn't really a vacation. It's World War III with coloring books. ~Robert Orben, 2100 Laughs For All Occasions, 1983


Have you ever seen the back seat of a car after two kids have spent three weeks in it? Crayola Canyon!… Everything is covered with wax. Looks like Madame Tussauds during a heat wave! ~Robert Orben, 2100 Laughs For All Occasions, 1983


Picasso is an artist, dear. Artists can color the sky red because they know it's blue. Those of us who aren't artists must color things the way they really are or people might think we're stupid. ~Jules Feiffer, Crawling Arnold, 1961


Hey Duncan. It's me, Red Crayon. We need to talk. You make me work harder than any of your other crayons. All year long I wear myself out coloring fire engines, apples, strawberries and everything else that's red. I even work on holidays! I have to color all the Santas at Christmas and all the hearts on Valentine's day! I need a rest! ~Drew Daywalt, The Day the Crayons Quit, 2013


People overestimate the pleasure they'll get from having more stuff. This does not apply to new rose bushes, crayons, or yarn stashes. ~Dr. SunWolf, @WordWhispers, tweet, professorsunwolf.com


...hot sepia coffee in a wisteria flowered mug, dandelion sunshine spilling through the periwinkle sky... ~Terri Guillemets, "Crayons & caffeine," 2009
