Famous quotes containing the word red:

    I spent my life mixin’ with your breed, and I don’t like it. Get me. You can hide behind a lot of red tape, crooked lawyers and politicians with the gimmes, writs of habeas corpus, witnesses that don’t remember overnight, but we’ll get through to you, just like we got all the rest.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    “The god has not yet answered to our pity
    For the black vision and tangle in her brains,
    Nor is there knowing soever in the city
    Of the red histories that throbbed in her blue veins.”
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    He is said to have been the last Red Man
    In Acton. And the Miller is said to have laughed
    If you like to call such a sound a laugh.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
