I was quite taken with that line when I first came across it and I meant to share this quote when I typed up my post about Shades of Grey.
My favorite color is orange, but in many ways I may be a Green (see post regarding hubris).
A side note about the color grey. Whenever I set down the word, I always have the feeling that I've spelled it incorrectly. I decided to do a little research and I found out the root of this orthographic1 predicament. Apparently the difficulty stems from a difference in British and American usage. Both the grey and gray spellings are correct, but grey is standard for the UK and gray for the US.
