Famous quotes containing the word brother:

    All my life long I have been sensible of the injustice constantly done to women. Since I have had to fight the world single-handed, there has not been one day I have not smarted under the wrongs I have had to bear, because I was not only a woman, but a woman doing a man’s work, without any man, husband, son, brother or friend, to stand at my side, and to see some semblance of justice done me. I cannot forget, for injustice is a sixth sense, and rouses all the others.
    Amelia E. Barr (1831–1919)

    The hawk is aerial brother of the wave which he sails over and surveys, those his perfect air-inflated wings answering to the elemental unfledged pinions of the sea.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
    Bible: Hebrew Proverbs, 18:19.
