Famous quotes containing the word brook:

    When a man lives with God, his voice shall be as sweet as the murmur of the brook and the rustle of the corn.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A leaping tongue of bloom the scythe had spared
    Beside a reedy brook the scythe had bared.

    The mower in the dew had loved them thus,
    By leaving them to flourish, not for us,

    Nor yet to draw one thought of ours to him,
    But from sheer morning gladness at the brim.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    This sand seemed to us the connecting link between land and water. It was a kind of water on which you could walk, and you could see the ripple-marks on its surface, produced by the winds, precisely like those at the bottom of a brook or lake. We had read that Mussulmans are permitted by the Koran to perform their ablutions in sand when they cannot get water, a necessary indulgence in Arabia, and we now understand the propriety of this provision.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
