Famous quotes containing the words combs and/or brood:

    Here at the fountain’s sliding foot,
    Or at some fruit-tree’s mossy root,
    Casting the body’s vest aside,
    My soul into the boughs does glide:
    There, like a bird, it sits and sings,
    Then whets and combs its silver wings,
    And, till prepared for longer flights,
    Waves in its plumes the various light.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)

    You brood of vipers! How can you speak good things, when you are evil?
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 12:34.
