Kako se postaje pisac? Ko to zna, rekao sam. Verovatno je to kao i u ostalim umetnostima, traženje neuzvraćene ljubavi. Volite me, volite me!… Vidite šta je sve umem i kako to lepo mogu da opišem, rekao sam. Volite me! Pisac nije profesija - to je mentalno stanje. M. Kapor

As yellow is always accompanied with light, so it may be said that blue still brings a principle of darkness with it. This colour has a peculiar and almost indescribable effect on the eye. As a hue it is powerful — but it is on the negative side, and in its highest purity is, as it were, a stimulating negation. Its appearance, then, is a kind of contradiction between excitement and repose. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Theory of Colours
