Famous quotes containing the word green:

    Hermann and Humbert are alike only in the sense that two dragons painted by the same artist at different periods of his life resemble each other. Both are neurotic scoundrels, yet there is a green lane in Paradise where Humbert is permitted to wander at dusk once a year; but Hell shall never parole Hermann.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    The gentle serpent, green in the mulberry bush,
    Riots with his tongue through the hush—
    Sentinel of the grave who counts us all!
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    People in America, of course, live in all sorts of fashions, because they are foreigners, or unlucky, or depraved, or without ambition; people live like that, but Americans live in white detached houses with green shutters. Rigidly, blindly, the dream takes precedence.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)
