Agree to verdigris

"I caught myself in the act of focusing on her temples 
and automatically analyzing the succession of appropriately graded colors 
which death was imposing on her motionless face."

-- Claude Monet

 "There is much pain that is quite noiseless ...
 kept secret by the sufferer committed to no sound 
except that of low moans in the night, 
seen in no writing except that made on the face 
by the slow months of suppressed anguish 
and early morning tears."

-- George Eliot
