Famous quotes containing the word greens:

    Our democracy, our culture, our whole way of life is a spectacular triumph of the blah. Why not have a political convention without politics to nominate a leader who’s out in front of nobody?... Maybe our national mindlessness is the very thing that keeps us from turning into one of those smelly European countries full of pseudo-reds and crypto-fascists and greens who dress like forest elves.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)

    Go on, high ship, since now, upon the shore,
    The snake has left its skin upon the floor.
    Key West sank downward under massive clouds
    And silvers and greens spread over the sea. The moon
    Is at the mast-head and the past is dead.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
