This world is not made of shades of grey. It is made of colours like azura and coral and emerald and marigold. But it insists on painting everything in black and white and fitting it into boxes it understands. Do not do that to yourself. Paint your personality a million different colours. Leave them scratching their heads unsure of how to handle the magic you are.
— Nikita Gill, Colours : And yes colours is spelled differently.
