Brother

Famous quotes containing the word brother:

    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)

    Would I if I could by pushing a button would I kill five
    thousand Chinamen if I could save my brother from
    anything. Well I was very fond of my brother and I
    could completely imagine his suffering and I replied
    that five thousand Chinamen was something I could not
    imagine and so it was not interesting. One has to
    remember that about imagination, that is when the
    world gets dull when everybody does not know what
    they can or what they cannot really imagine.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
