Famous quotes containing the word brother:

    Not my brother or my sister, but it’s me, O Lord,
    standin’ in the need of prayer:
    —African-American hymn-writer. “Standing in the Need of Prayer,” l. 3-4.

    All my life long I have been sensible of the injustice constantly done to women. Since I have had to fight the world single-handed, there has not been one day I have not smarted under the wrongs I have had to bear, because I was not only a woman, but a woman doing a man’s work, without any man, husband, son, brother or friend, to stand at my side, and to see some semblance of justice done me. I cannot forget, for injustice is a sixth sense, and rouses all the others.
    Amelia E. Barr (1831–1919)

    Would I if I could by pushing a button would I kill five
    thousand Chinamen if I could save my brother from
    anything. Well I was very fond of my brother and I
    could completely imagine his suffering and I replied
    that five thousand Chinamen was something I could not
    imagine and so it was not interesting. One has to
    remember that about imagination, that is when the
    world gets dull when everybody does not know what
    they can or what they cannot really imagine.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
