Quote #1

twice beautifulis beautyand what is good doublygoodwhen it is a case of twowoolen socksin wintertime. (81-88)


The first four lines of this quote are about the lofty poetic ideals of beauty and goodness, so the last three lines are sort of a humble surprise, since it turns out that beauty and goodness are defined as woolen socks. Gotcha!
