Famous quotes containing the words hopkins and/or bruce:

    What would the world be, once bereft
    Of wet and of wildness? Let them be left,
    O let them be left, wildness and wet;
    Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.
    —Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889)

    A lot of people say to me, “Why did you kill Christ?” “I dunno ... it was one of those parties, got out of hand, you know.” We killed him because he didn’t want to become a doctor, that’s why we killed him.
    —Lenny Bruce (1925–1966)
