Famous quotes containing the word brother:

    If you are ready to leave father and mother, and brother and sister, and wife and child and friends, and never see them again,—if you have paid your debts and made your will, and settled all your affairs, and are a free man, then you are ready for a walk.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I shun father and mother and wife and brother when my genius calls me. I would write on the lintels of the door-post, Whim. I hope that it is somewhat better than whim at last, but we cannot spend the day in explanation.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    It always seems to the brothers and the father that their brother or son didn’t marry the right person.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
