Famous quotes containing the words frog and/or brooding:

    What a wonderful bird the frog are—
    When he stand he sit almost;
    When he hop, he fly almost.
    He ain’t got no sense hardly;
    He ain’t got no tail hardly either.
    When he sit, he sit on what he ain’t got almost.

    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)
