Famous quotes containing the word bring:
“Pull down the blinds, bring fiddle and clarionet
That there be no foot silent in the room
Nor mouth from kissing, nor from wine unwet;
Our Father Rosicross is in his tomb.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“My belief is that science is to wreck us, and that we are like monkeys monkeying with a loaded shell; we dont in the least know or care where our practically infinite energies come from or will bring us to.”
—Henry Brooks Adams (18381918)
“The future of America may or may not bring forth a black President, a woman President, a Jewish President, but it most certainly always will have a suburban President. A President whose senses have been defined by the suburbs, where lakes and public baths mutate into back yards and freeways, where walking means driving, where talking means telephoning, where watching means TV, and where living means real, imitation life.”
—Arthur Kroker (b. 1945)
