“There’s something really appealing about the simplicity of black-and-white images.” –Joseph Gordon-Levitt

“If everything isn’t black and white, I say, ‘Why the hell not?'” –John Wayne

      A reformer treading the fuzzy line between economic night and day, may get fat.

“It doesn’t matter if a cat is black or white, so long as it catches mice.” –Deng Xiaoping
