Famous quotes containing the word bring:

    Some bring a capon, some a rural cake,
    Some nuts, some apples; some that think they make
    The better cheeses bring ‘em, or else send
    By their ripe daughters, whom they would commend
    This way to husbands, and whose baskets bear
    An emblem of themselves in plum or pear.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    Life is very narrow. Bring any club or company of intelligent men together again after ten years, and if the presence of some penetrating and calming genius could dispose them to frankness, what a confession of insanities would come up!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We die with the dying:
    See, they depart, and we go with them.
    We are born with the dead:
    See, they return, and bring us with them.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
