Because, if bad can sometimes come from good actions—? where does it ever say, anywhere, that only bad can come from bad actions? Maybe sometimes — the wrong way is the right way? You can take the wrong path and it still comes out where you want to be? Or, spin it another way, sometimes you can do everything wrong and it still turns out to be right?” ― Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Some girls like to say one thing and mean another. And me being who I am, I’m very straightforward. Everything is very black and white for me. I don’t really like playing mind games. Zayn Malik

” She takes a bite out of a whole peeled onion as if it were an apple.” ― Diana Abu-Jaber, Crescent

Andri Magdelena Cauldwell is a contemporary American photographer Her black and white quotes pinpoint exactly how powerful monochrome photography can be.

“Loo, life is black and white. You don’t know what’s good for you, because you don’t see the black and white! You don’t see where the black lines end and where the white lines begin! You’re going to grow up to be no good if you keep on that way.

It’s impractical. I only have one child, and I won’t have her growing up to be impractical. I can’t think of a worse thing to be than impractical!” ― C. JoyBell C., Saint Paul Trois Chateaux: 1948

There are infinite shades of grey. Writing often appears so black and white. Rebecca Solnit

“You have a consistent character yourself and you wish all the facts of life to be consistent, but they never are. For instance you despise public service because you want work always to correspond to its aims, and that never happens.

You also want the activity of each separate man to have an aim, and love and family life always to coincide––and that doesn’t happen either. All the variety, charm and beauty of life are made up of light and shade.

” ― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Black and white creates a strange dreamscape that color never can. Jack Antonoff

Splitting, also known as black and white thinking is a type of cognitive disorder where people fail to see possibilities in situations because they are only accustomed to seeing either as positive or negative and not a mixture of two.

Philip Jones Griffiths was a Welsh photojournalist. He’s best known for his coverage of the Vietnam war. He was president of Magnum, between 1980-85.

“The natural response of the old-timers is to build a strong moral wall against the outside. This is where the world starts to be painted in black and white, saints inside, and sinners outside the wall.”― Mary Douglas

In tragedy, it’s hard to find a good resolution; it’s not black and white: it’s a big fog of gray. Paul Dano

“I’ve been forty years discovering that the queen of all colors is black.” – Henri Mattise

“Let’s assume that all the cassettes of monochrome film Cartier-Bresson ever exposed had somehow been surreptitiously loaded with color film.

Divesting a picture from its colors is like disrobing; you see everything in its natural state, without any charade, without any distractions; everything raw and everything pure.

“In the beginning, some people try to appear that everything about them is “in black and white,” until later their true colors come out.” ― Anthony Liccione

“When I was a little girl, everything in the world fell into either of these two categories: wrong or right. Black or white. Now that I am an adult, I have put childish things aside and now I know that some things fall into wrong and some things fall into right.

Some things are categorized as black and some things are categorized as white. But most things in the world aren’t either! Most things in the world aren’t black, aren’t white, aren’t wrong, aren’t right, but most of everything is just different.

And now I know that there’s nothing wrong with different, and that we can let things be different, we don’t have to try and make them black or white, we can just let them be grey. And when I was a child, I thought that God was the God who only saw black and white.

Now that I am no longer a child, I can see, that God is the God who can see the black and the white and the grey, too, and He dances on the grey! Grey is okay.” ― C. JoyBell C.

“Which is probably the reason why I work exclusively in black and white… to highlight that contrast.”― Leonard Nimoy

“The way I was brought up by my parents and guided through my football life by the influences of various managers means that in some ways I am black and white.”― Stuart Pearce

There’s so much grey to every story – nothing is so black and white. Lisa Ling

I don’t believe there’s two sides to every story. It’s black and white. There’s right and wrong. Joe Wurzelbacher

Robert Frank is a Swiss-American photographer and documentary filmmaker. His most notable work, the 1958 book titled The Americans, presented his outsider’s view of American society.

The great thing about getting older is that you become more mellow. Things aren’t as black and white, and you become much more tolerant. You can see the good in things much more easily rather than getting enraged as you used to do when you were young.

Maeve Binchy

“Ought one to surrender to authority even if one believed that that authority was wrong? If the answer was yes, then I knew that I would always be wrong, because I could never do it. Then how could one live in a world in which one’s mind and perceptions meant nothing and authority and tradition meant everything? There were no answers.

” ― Richard Wright, Black Boy

Life is not black and white; there is some gray nuance to it. Pilou Asbaek

“We look amazing,” I repeated, as if I could make up for our brother’s rudeness.And we did look amazing. Käthe and I were dressed as an angel and a demon, but to my surprise, my sister had chosen to be the devil.

She looked majestic in her gown of black velvet, her golden curls draped with black silk and lace, cleverly twisted together and pinned to resemble horns growing from her head. She had rouged her lips a bright red, and her blue eyes looked imperious from behind her black mask.

For a moment, the image of moldering gowns on dress forms rose up in my mind, a polished bronze mirror reflecting an endless line of faded Goblin Queens. I swallowed.The dress my sister had made for me was nearly innocent in its simplicity.

Yards and yards of fine white muslin had made a floating, ethereal gown, while Käthe had somehow fashioned a brocade cape into the shape of folded angel wings, which grew from my shoulder blades and cascaded to the floor.

She had braided gold into a crown about my head for a halo, and I carried a lyre to complete the picture.” ― S. Jae-Jones, Shadowsong

Jennifer Price is an American contemporary photographer. She runs her own photography studio in California.

“It’s not hard to get your way when it’s your way or the highway. People either follow suit or they’re not around. I don’t really like the sound of that, ’cause that sounds like a temper tantrum. I’m just very black and white when it comes to my business.

There’s really no gray area.”― Nicki Minaj

Did you know that the human voice is the only pure instrument? That it has notes no other instrument has? It’s like being between the keys of a piano. The notes are there, you can sing them, but they can’t be found on any instrument.

That’s like me. I live in between this. I live in both worlds, the black and white world. Nina Simone

Life isn’t black and white. It’s a million gray areas, don’t you find? Ridley Scott

I spent a lot of years trying to outrun or outsmart vulnerability by making things certain and definite, black and white, good and bad. My inability to lean into the discomfort of vulnerability limited the fullness of those important experiences that are wrought with uncertainty: Love, belonging, trust, joy, and creativity to name a few.

Brene Brown
