Steiner Brothers

Famous quotes containing the words steiner and/or brothers:

    The variables are surprisingly few.... One can whip or be whipped; one can eat excrement or quaff urine; mouth and private part can be meet in this or that commerce. After which there is the gray of morning and the sour knowledge that things have remained fairly generally the same since man first met goat and woman.
    —George Steiner (b. 1929)

    Best masters for the young writer and speaker are the fault- finding brothers and sisters at home who will not spare him, but will pick and cavil, and tell the odious truth.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
