Famous quotes containing the words brooks and/or richard:

    But could a dream send up through onion fumes
    Its white and violet, fight with fried potatoes
    And yesterday’s garbage ripening in the hall,
    Flutter, or sing an aria down these rooms
    Even if we were willing to let it in,
    —Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    In politics, victory is never total.
