Famous quotes containing the words young and/or brigham:

    So was produced this tragedy
    In a far tower of ivory
    Where, O young men, late in the night
    All you who drink light and stroke the air
    Come back, seeking the night, and cry
    To strict Rapunzel to let down her hair.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    John Brown’s body lies a-moldering in the grave,
    His soul is marching on.
    —Thomas Brigham Bishop (1835–1905)
