Famous quotes containing the words brook and/or michael:

    When the enterprising burglar isn’t burgling,
    When the cut-throat isn’t occupied in crime,
    He loves to hear the little brook a-gurgling,
    And listen to the merry village chime.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.
    Julius J. Epstein, U.S. screenwriter, Philip Epstein, screenwriter, Howard Koch, screenwriter, and Michael Curtiz. Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart)
