Famous quotes containing the word brand:

    Well, you look so pretty in it
    Honey, can I jump on it sometime?
    Yes, I just wanna see
    If it’s really that expensive kind
    You know it balances on your head
    Just like a mattress balances
    On a bottle of wine
    Your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    “Why does your brand so drop with blood,
    Edward, Edward?
    Unknown. Edward (l. 1–2)

    The question mark is alright when it is all alone when it
    is used as a brand on cattle or when it could be used
    in decoration but connected with writing it is
    completely entirely completely uninteresting.... A
    question is a question, anybody can know that a
    question is a question and so why add to it the
    question mark when it is already there when the
    question is already there in the writing.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
