Ode to My Socks Humility Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Line)

Quote #4

twice beautiful
is beauty
and what is good doubly
good
when it is a case of two
woolen socks
in 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!
