The close correlation between white skin and pink eyes of total albinos in most vertebrates would be counted as a single character, since the total absence of pigment implies lack of retinal pigment.
(Sneath & Sokal, Numerical Taxonomy, § 3.7)
“To the women
of America…”—no, make it to the women everywhere: “banish the black, burn the blue, and bury the beige! From now on
Think pink! think pink! when you shop for summer clothes.
Think pink! think pink! if you want that quel-que chose.
Red is dead, blue is through,
Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo.
And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce
Think pink! forget that Dior says black and rust.
(Roger Edens, Think Pink!)
Within the ruined dome, surrounded by stone dust and bits of broken masonry, lay a man on a golden block. He was clad in a sort of skirt and a shagreen girdle. His black hair, which fell in a square mane to his massive shoulders, was confined about his temples by a narrow gold band. On his bare, muscular breast lay a curious dagger with a jeweled pommel, a shagreen-bound hilt, and a broad, crescent blade.
(Robert E. Howard, The Devil in Iron, ch. 1)
Mademoiselle de Breil était une jeune personne à peu près de mon âge, bien faite, assez belle, très blanche, avec des cheveux très noirs, et, quoique brune, portant sur son visage cet air de douceur des blondes auquel mon cœur n’a jamais résisté.
(Rousseau, Les confessions)
