Famous quotes containing the word brown:

    The human body is not a thing or substance, given, but a continuous creation. The human body is an energy system ... which is never a complete structure; never static; is in perpetual inner self-construction and self-destruction; we destroy in order to make it new.
    —Norman O. Brown (b. 1913)
