"White is not a mere absence of color; 
it is a shining and affirmative thing, 
as fierce as red, 
as definite as black."

"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, 
just as things grow in fast movies, 
I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
