58 Pink Quotes for Appreciation and Empowerment

We often stereotype pink with softness, femininity, and playfulness. However, it symbolizes much more. Although the color pink reminds us of the softer and sweeter side, it’s also a powerful color. Here, we feature some of the best pink quotes that we love as much as the color pink. 

More than just a color, pink signifies universal love, harmony, compassion, and kindness. Pink can energize, uplift, and calm us down, depending on its usage. These quotes about pink can create a deeper appreciation of the color pink and its meanings.

Best pink quotes

In a way, we can understand pink’s properties by examining its parent colors. Pink comes from a combination of red and white, two wildly opposing colors both in look and meaning. 

Red is a strong and hot color, bursting with energy. Red is powerful, passionate, and energetic. On the other hand, white is a calm, serene and pure color. Meeting in the middle, these two distinct colors create pink. As a result, pink has both the properties of red and white. In a way, we can say pink is an emotion. More than a color, it’s an attitude. 

Pink is affectionate, passionate, and tender. It reminds us of love, unity, and intimacy. It also exudes the feeling of warmth in the different pink shades. 

What do you think of hot pink? Or maybe the muted or fading pink tone? These might draw up various feelings in you. Most times, light pink or blush pink have tender connotations, while hot pink is closer to the energetic properties of red. As you reflect on pink’s role in your life, let’s explore some of our favorite pink quotes.

Pink quotes about acceptance

For the longest time, people have regarded pink as a girly color. Even during events like baby showers, you’ll find the distinction - blue is for boys, and pink is for girls. 

Related: Color Meaning, Nature, Symbolism, and Psychology

As our society evolves and becomes more conscious of equality, many people have let go of these standards. 

Years ago, hardly would you find a man comfortable enough to wear an outfit with a pink element. Although many men still don’t feel comfortable in it, there’s a lot more acceptance around it. Little girls are also learning that they’re allowed to love and embrace other colors. 

Many people grew up in situations where they wore pink as a sign of girliness. With the growth in acceptance, people now use pink as a way of self-expression. Pink hair, pink accessories, and so on are available to everyone.
