Famous quotes containing the words bands and/or brass:

    According to the historian, they escaped as by a miracle all roving bands of Indians, and reached their homes in safety, with their trophies, for which the General Court paid them fifty pounds. The family of Hannah Dustan all assembled alive once more, except the infant whose brains were dashed out against the apple tree, and there have been many who in later time have lived to say that they have eaten of the fruit of that apple tree.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    You could almost see the brass on her gleaming,
    Not quite. The mist was to light what red
    Is to fire. And her mainmast tapered to nothing,
    Without teetering a millimeter’s measure.
    The beads on her rails seemed to grasp at transparence.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
