Famous quotes containing the word brook:

    deep in the manhood his childhood
    so swiftly led to, a small brook rock-leaping
    into the rapt, imperious, seagoing river.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923, Anglo–U.S. poet. “The Son.”

We had read that Mussulmans are permitted by the Koran to perform their ablutions in sand when they cannot get water, a necessary indulgence in Arabia, and we now understand the propriety of this provision.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    [T]he dignity of parliament it seems can brook no opposition to it’s power. Strange that a set of men who have made sale of their virtue to the minister should yet talk of retaining dignity!
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
