The over-all point is that new technology will not necessarily replace old technology, but it will date it. By definition. Eventually, it will replace it.

Steve Jobs, businessman

Painting is something that takes place among the colors, and one has to leave them alone completely, so that they can settle the matter among themselves.

Jon Hamm, actor

Let me go over this again on the reclaiming the civil rights movement. People of faith that believe that you have an equal right to justice - that is the essence.

Glenn Beck, journalist

Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.

Claude Monet, painter

The true color of life is the color of the body, the color of the covered red, the implicit and not explicit red of the living heart and the pulses. It is the modest color of the unpublished blood.

Green how I want you green. Green wind. Green branches.

I want to say with the utmost of sincerity, not as a Republican, but as an American, that I have great respect for Senator Obama's historic achievement to become his party's nominee, not because of his color, but with indifference to it.

Mike Huckabee, politician

My real hair color is kind of a dark blonde. Now I just have mood hair.

Julia Roberts, actress

In the 21st century, white America got a wake-up call after 9/11/01. White America and the western world came to realize that people of color had not gone away, faded into the woodwork or just 'disappeared' as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.

Jeremiah Wright, clergyman

Why is it that many contemporary male thinkers, especially men of color, repudiate the imperialist legacy of Columbus but affirm dimensions of that legacy by their refusal to repudiate patriarchy?

Bell Hooks, critic

And my point was one I think that you'd agree with, which is there's no room in America for a black racist, a Latino racist, or a white racist, or an Asian racist, or a Native American racist. Now, we're either color blind or we're not color blind.

The more color, the more nutrients, usually.

Tina Thompson,

George Washington Carver, scientist

Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service. The iMac is not just the color or translucence or the shape of the shell. The essence of the iMac is to be the finest possible consumer computer in which each element plays together.

Edgar Cayce, celebrity

If they ever do my life story, whoever plays me needs lots of hair color and high heels.

Charlize Theron, actress

I just don't think there are any rules to color. You have a small space with no windows? Put lamps in there, make it dramatic, paint the ceiling black. Do something with it. If it's dark, accentuate the darkness.

One of my favorite colors is no color at all.

Billy Baldwin, designer
