Colours -

I really believe that the colour we use least in our metaphors is grey. In our political metaphors, we talk about the 'greens', we talk about the 'brown shirts', we talk about the 'blacks', the 'reds', we rarely talk about grey, except perhaps, when referring to old people. Yet grey in my opinion is *the* politically realistic colour of this century. All really major problems that we have to face are grey problems, none of their solutions are black and white solutions, they are all grey. We do not want to listen to grey questions. We do not want to hear grey answers. - Carl Djerassi
