Famous quotes containing the words girl, unknown and/or brown:

    The protection of a ten-year-old girl from her father’s advances is a necessary condition of social order, but the protection of the father from temptation is a necessary condition of his continued social adjustment.

    I thought how sadly beauty of inscape was unknown and buried away from simple people and yet how near at hand it was if they had eyes to see it and it could be called out everywhere again.
    Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)

    Poor old Jonathan Bing

    If you please will excuse me
    I won’t come to tea;
    For home’s the best place for
    All people like me!
    —Beatrice Curtis Brown (1901–1974)
