Famous quotes containing the words young and/or brad:

    There are two kinds of men, and only two, and that young man is one kind. He is high-minded, he is pure, he’s the kind of man that the world pretends to look up to, and in fact despises. He is
    the kind of man who breeds unhappiness, particularly in women.
    Robert Bolt (1924–1995)

    When Brad doesn’t come nights, you’ll know the blonde he’s sitting up with is a giraffe.
    Fredric M. Frank (1911–1977)
