On my windowsill this morning: a gift of blue.
This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, there’s nothing true about it. Blue is beauty, not truth. ‘True blue’ is a ruse, a rhyme; it’s there, then it’s not. Blue is a deeply sneaky color.”
—Christopher Moore, Sacré Bleu: A Comedy d’Art
“Blue was a fanciful, but sensible thing. Like a platypus, or one of those sandwiches that had been cut into circles for a fancy tea party.”
—Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven Boys
