Angry people are not always wise. ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

She prized the frank, the open-hearted, the eager character beyond all others. Warmth and enthusiasm did captivate her still. She felt that she could so much more depend upon the sincerity of those who sometimes looked or said a careless or a hasty thing, than of those whose presence of mind never varied, whose tongue never slipped. ~ Persuasion by Jane Austen

Every life is many days, day after day. We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants, old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-love, but always meeting ourselves. ~ Ulysses by James Joyce

What do I mean by LitQuotes Duo?  Sometimes quotes, like chocolate chip cookies, are best served in pairs. Duos may be similar, surprising, contradictory or odd. They can make you smile or even make you think.

Today’s Duo is one of my favorites! It deals with all things green.

Quote One: “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on.” ~ Othello by William Shakespeare

Quote Two: The snotgreen sea. The scrotumtightening sea. ~ Ulysses by James Joyce
