Famous quotes containing the word brother:

    —My brother Toby, quoth she, is going to be married to Mrs. Wadman. “Then he will never,” quoth my father, “be able to lie diagonally in his bed again as long as he lives.”
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    If woman alone had suffered under these mistaken traditions [of women’s subordination], if she could have borne the evil by herself, it would have been less pitiful, but her brother man, in the laws he created and ignorantly worshipped, has suffered with her. He has lost her highest help; he has crippled the intelligence he needed; he has belittled the very source of his own being and dwarfed the image of his Maker.
    Clara Barton (1821–1912)

    Maud Muller looked and sighed: “Ah me!
    That I the Judge’s bride might be!

    “He would dress me up in silks so fine,
    And praise and toast me at his wine.

    “My father should wear a broadcloth coat,
    My brother should sail a painted boat.
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
