  • "White is the most mundane of colors, and the greatest of all colors; it is the most colorless and the most colorful; it is the most noble color and the most common color; it is the most tranquil color, and the saddest color too… white in and of itself is many colors; it can be thicker, thinner, heavier, lighter, transparent, semi-transparent… which means that with white and white, you can construct many strange and wonderful relationships of shapes and shapes, or spaces and spaces." —Richard Lin
