My master of Egypt, my Joseph, my everything, the queen of my heart's realm.

O my love of black hair with bow-like eyebrows, with langourous perfidius eyes.
If I die you are my killer, O merciless, infidel woman.“

„You nobles, you sons of my leading men, soft and dandified, trusting in your birth and your wealth, paying no attention to my command and your advancement, you neglected the pursuit of learning and indulged yourselves in the sport of pleasure and idleness and foolish pastimes.

Know this without any doubt; unless you rapidly make up for your idleness by eager effort, you will never receive any benefit from Charlemagne.“
— Charlemagne King of the Franks, King of Italy, and Holy Roman Emperor 748 - 814
Quoted in Notker's The Deeds of Charlemagne (translated 2008 by David Ganz)

You were called AUXOCHROME the one who captures color. I CHROMOPHORE — the one who gives color. You are all the combinations of numbers. life. My wish is to understand lines form shades movement. You fulfill and I receive. Your word travels the entirety of space and reaches my cells which are my stars then goes to yours which are my light.“
— Frida Kahlo Mexican painter 1907 - 1954
