Famous quotes containing the words nest and/or brood:

    I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.... Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.
    Harper Lee (b. 1926)

    “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit worthy of repentance.”
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 3:7-8.
