Famous quotes containing the word brute:

    Union may be strength, but it is mere blind brute strength unless wisely directed.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    All generous minds have a horror of what are commonly called “facts.” They are the brute beasts of the intellectual domain. Who does not know fellows that always have an ill-conditioned fact or two that they lead after them into decent company like so many bull-dogs, ready to let them slip at every ingenious suggestion, or convenient generalization, or pleasant fancy? I allow no “facts” at this table.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    The earth had a single light afar,
    A flickering, human pathetic light,
    That was maintained against the night,
    It seemed to me, by the people there,
    With a Godforsaken brute despair.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
