Famous quotes containing the word green:

    But bear in mind your lover’s wage
    Is what your looking-glass can show,
    And that he will turn green with rage
    At all that is not pictured there.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    It was in and about the Martinmas time,
    When the green leaves were afalling,
    That Sir John Graeme, in the West Country,
    Fell in love with Barbara Allan.
    Unknown. Bonny Barbara Allan (l. 1–4)

    Simplicity of life, even the barest, is not a misery, but the very foundation of refinement; a sanded floor and whitewashed walls and the green trees, and flowery meads, and living waters outside; or a grimy palace amid the same with a regiment of housemaids always working to smear the dirt together so that it may be unnoticed; which, think you, is the most refined, the most fit for a gentleman of those two dwellings?
    William Morris (1834–1896)
