Famous quotes containing the word bring:
“They tell us sometimes that if we had only kept quiet, all these desirable things would have come about of themselves. I am reminded of the Greek clown who, having seen an archer bring down a flying bird, remarked, sagely: You might have saved your arrow, for the bird would anyway have been killed by the fall.”
—Elizabeth Cady Stanton (18151902)
“The whole of the day should not be daytime; there should be one hour, if not more, which the day did not bring forth.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“It breaks his heart that kings must murder still,
That all his hours of travail here for men
Seem yet in vain. And who will bring white peace
That he may sleep upon his hill again?”
—Vachel Lindsay (18791931)
