All looks yellow to the jaundiced eye.

All looks yellow to the jaundiced eye.

 

“All seems infected that the infected spy, 
As all looks yellow to the jaundiced eye.”

-Alexander Pope

(English poet; Father of modern satire)

When your vision is cloudy, it’s near impossible to focus on anything else. It’s hard to be see color when your lenses are stained. When something’s wrong, all seems wrong.
(everything comes back to “The Yellow Wallpaper”)
