Famous quotes containing the words joseph brodsky, brodsky and/or joseph:

    The poetic notion of infinity is far greater than that which is sponsored by any creed.
    Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)

    The surest defense against Evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality, even—if you will—eccentricity. That is, something that can’t be feigned, faked, imitated; something even a seasoned imposter couldn’t be happy with.
    —Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)

    If you tie a horse to a stake, do you expect he will grow fat? If you pen an Indian up on a small spot of earth, and compel him to stay there, he will not be contented, nor will he grow and prosper. I have asked some of the great white chiefs where they get their authority to say to the Indian that he shall stay in one place, while he sees white men going where they please. They can not tell me.
    —Chief Joseph (c. 1840–1904)
