Famous quotes containing the word brooks:

    But can see better there, and laughing there
    Pity the giants wallowing on the plain.
    ...
    Pygmies expand in cold impossible air,
    Cry fie on the giantshine, poor glory which
    Pounds breast-bone punily, screeches, and has
    Reached no Alps: or, knows no Alps to reach.
    —Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
