Girl with a Pearl Earring quote&picture

Yes! I can say that this is my favorite quote from Tracy Chevalier's book. What is yours?




- come here Griet.Look out of the window.What color are those clouds?

-why,white,sir

-are they?

-and grey.perhaps it will snow

- come,griet, you can do better than that.think of your vegetables.

-my vegetables,sir?

-think of how you separated the whites.your turnips and your onions-are they the same white?

- no,the turnip has green in it,the onion yellow

-exactly.now,what colours do you see in the clouds?

-there is some blue in them. and-yellow as well.and there is some green!

-you will find there is little pure white in clouds,yet people say they are white.now do you understand why i do not need the blue yet?

-yes,sir
