Lapis Sayings By Dalia Sofer: He sees his world in black and white: Filthy snow, a hollow sky, the gray He sees his world in black and white: Filthy snow, a hollow sky, the gray cement of the walls - water stains, like giant ink spills, eating into them - and his own skin, an ashy patina enveloping his body.

Odysseos wore a sleeveless tunic, his legs and feet bare, but he had thrown a lamb's fleece across his wide shoulders. His face was thickly bearded with dark curly hair that showed a trace of grey. His heavy mop of ringlets came down to his shoulders and across his forehead almost down to his black eyebrows. Those eyes were as grey as the sea outside on this rainy afternoon, probing, searching, judging. — Ben Bova

Lapis Sayings By Oscar Wilde: The walls were hung with rich tapestries representing the Triumph of Beauty. A large press, The walls were hung with rich tapestries representing the Triumph of Beauty. A large press, inlaid with agate and lapis-lazuli, filled one corner, and facing the window stood a curiously wrought cabinet with lacquer panels of powdered and mosaiced gold, on which were placed some delicate goblets of Venetian glass, and a cup of dark-veined onyx. Pale poppies were broidered on the silk coverlet of the bed, as though they had fallen from the tired hands of sleep, and tall reeds of fluted ivory bare up the velvet canopy, from which great tufts of ostrich plumes sprang, like white foam, to the pallid silver of the fretted ceiling. A laughing Narcissus in green bronze held a polished mirror above its head. On the table stood a flat bowl of amethyst. — Oscar Wilde

It left me breathless with awe. — Vicky Alvear Shecter
Lapis Sayings By Michael Ende: Bastian had climbed a dune of purplish-red sand and all around him he saw nothing Bastian had climbed a dune of purplish-red sand and all around him he saw nothing but hill after hill of every imaginable color.

It was a thing shaped of clay in the form of a man, brought to life by carving the symbol aleph into its brow.

His soul. — Laini Taylor
