Famous quotes containing the words brother and/or elder:

    All my life long I have been sensible of the injustice constantly done to women. Since I have had to fight the world single-handed, there has not been one day I have not smarted under the wrongs I have had to bear, because I was not only a woman, but a woman doing a man’s work, without any man, husband, son, brother or friend, to stand at my side, and to see some semblance of justice done me. I cannot forget, for injustice is a sixth sense, and rouses all the others.
    Amelia E. Barr (1831–1919)

    Oh yes, that’s right. They chain up wild animals. That’s all I am, an animal.
    —John Elder [Anthony Hinds], British screenwriter, and Terence Fisher. Leon (Oliver Reed)
