"I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them, Sam I am.", -Dr. Seuss

"Lord, keep my memory green,"-Charles Dickens

"All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green," -Goethe

"Green and black go well together, don't they?" -Tiger Woods


Now, my blog is pinch proof.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Do you have a favorite green quote?

Reader Comments (23)

“An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight. . . The truly wise person is colorblind.” - Albert Schweitzer

“Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.” - Ansel Adams

“On a traffic light green means go and yellow means yield, but on a banana it's just the opposite. Green means hold on, yellow means go ahead, and red means where the hell did you get that banana at...” - Mitch Hedberg

But my favorite:
“Never stay up on the barren heights of cleverness, but come down into the green valleys of silliness.” - Ludwig Wittgenstein

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

"It's not easy being green". And you're so lazy!

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAvitable

Yes. No. She wasn't talking to you. Well if she's talking to you she's talking to me. Not necessarily. Oh yes necessarily. No, you're just green with envy because she likes me better than you. Oh very droll, very droll - I like the way you slipped in the "green" thing there. Yes it was pretty nifty wasn't it? That was sarcasm. Oh.... what color is that?

Avitable stole my quote. :(

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFinn

favorite green quote? hmmmm, i'll have to think on that one...

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSlyde

What does "pinch proof" mean?

How about something from Angel:
Lorne: "Misses her little green boo, does she?"

Or something a bit more classic:
"Men like my father cannot die. They are with me still, real in memory as they were in flesh, loving and beloved forever. How green was my valley then." - How Green Was My Valley

Annd the winner is B.E. Earl!!! You win... a dose of self righteousness and exactly one (misguided) statement regarding Buffy's superiority over Angel without comment from me.

P.S. Adam, are you serious? This coming from the guy who posted Bizkit on his blog the other day?!!

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

I expect more after you come back from your self-imposed Monday Internet hiatus.

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAvitable

"Expected." Hahahahaha! Gee whiz, DAD, I'll try to do better next time.

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

"Expect" Before you correct me grammar nazi.

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFaiqa

bring on the green beer, and I will come up with all the green quotes you want.
Oh, and I am sure my guest poster, Colleen, did not mind being called a "hot poodle". She probably enjoyed the compliment! Come by any time and call anyone you see on my blog hot. They will love you forever.
(but Syb is totally hot, isn't she?)

This was a contest?

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKiefer and Emo

Google told me that my favorite quote involving the word "green" is : "If your knees aren't green by the end of the day, you ought to seriously re-examine your life." Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes)

@mielikki: She *IS* hot. She's my blog wife, you know.

@Kiefer and Emo: Everything is a contest, isn't it? No, actually, I just love Angel and Earl quoted it which made me feel like giving him some sort of award

@Sheila: As if I did NOT google those quotes.

"Sarah I know I'm Irish because my snot is green." My god-daughter last year on St. Paddy's day.

Still cracks me up.

"In God We Trust"

I see that in GREEN PRINT everytime I spend an AMERICAN dollar.

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNYCWD

I can't believe that this one hasn't been posted yet:

"The grass is always GREENER on the other side of the fence."

That's my favorite.

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJason

Avitable stole mine! I love Kermit the Frog!


March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterHoosierGirl

Yeah, Adam stole it from me too- I knew there was no way I would be the first to say it!

Hmmm, I seem to be late to the party as all the ones I had were already posted. I've got nothing!
Anyways, cute post and I don't think lazy at all.

March 17, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKimberly

Hmmm, a green quote. Let's see...

"Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac... It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!"
- Carl Spackler (aka Bill Murray), "Caddyshack"

Yes, you may smack me now.
