A collection of proverbs and quotes about the color green.
A root, a stem, a leaf, some means of capturing sunlight and air and making food – in sum, a plant. The green substance of this earth, the chlorophyll, is all summed up in the plants. Without them we perish, all of us who are flesh and blood.
An old banana leaf was once young and green.
But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
Distant hills look green.
Green maize abounds at the houses of those without teeth.
Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly.
He has a green thumb.
He has a natural skill for gardening or to make plants grow,
He has green fingers.
He is green-fingered. He is good in making plants grow. A natural skill for gardening.
I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
Lyrics “What a Wonderful World”
Keep a tree green in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come.
Men make the earth black from green leaves.
Praise the ripe field not the green corn.
The fangs of the green snake and the sting of a wasp don’t really make poison; that is only to be found in a woman’s heart.
The grass is always greener on the other side.
The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder
High Hopes Lyrics
When you’re green, you’re growing. When you’re ripe, you rot.
You don’t throw rocks at a green mango.
