Famous quotes containing the words brown and/or john:

    The brown waves of fog toss up to me
    Twisted faces from the bottom of the street,
    And tear from a passer-by with muddy skirts
    An aimless smile that hovers in the air
    And vanishes along the level of the roofs.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
