(from Oxford English Dictionary)
Four years ago, one day, I wore violet clothes.
My sister laughed and said, “Who wears that color these days?”
However, it’s the hottest color now. She will not be able to make fun of me wearing purple.
“There are many, many things that are difficult in this life, but one thing that isn’t difficult at all is figuring out whether someone is excited or not when they open a present. If someone is excited, they will often put exclamation points at the end of their sentences to indicate their excited tone of voice. If they say “Oh!” for instance, the exclamation point would indicate that the person is saying “Oh!” in an excited way, rather than simply saying “Oh,” with a comma after it, which would indicate that the present is somewhat disappointing.
“Oh,” Violet said, as she opened her present.

The color of mystery with softness and fancy at the same time;
it seems to include all the vague but shiny things in the world, expressing a strong ego.
Violet reminds me of my age 14 when I believed that what I thought was always right;
I was unstable however seemed neutral, trying to tightly control between pride and modesty, or selfishness and altruism. Maybe it was a kind of obsession and rationalization.

Violet; The energy of red combined with the calm of blue to create violet.
Violet gives a dreamlike feeling.
When I think of violet, I bring my mother to my mind. Because when I was young, if I asked my mother “What is your favorite color?”, she always said “Violet.”
