Famous quotes containing the word bring:
“Renunciation: that is the great fact we all, individuals and classes, have to learn. In trying to avoid it we bring misery to ourselves and others.”
—Beatrice Potter Webb (18581943)
“The young ... look into visages dull-eyed, long-toothed, wattle-necked, and chop-fallen, something they have never been and which they cannot imagine ever being.... If it occurs to a young person, looking at us, that this is the direction in which he himself travels, how can he forgive, let alone bear the sight of, us, who constantly bring him the bad news of our own faces, bitter signposts pointing to his own destination?”
—Jessamyn West (19021984)
