I spent my childhood clad in 1970s hand-me-downs, primarily from male cousins, which mainly consisted of a selection of beige, brown and orange dungarees.

I use the ‘Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow’ Palette every day. I’ve tried a bunch of stuff, but this is my favorite. For eyebrows, I use the ‘Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow’ Pomade in Dark Brown, and for mascara, I don’t use anything else but ‘Urban Decay Perversion’ Mascara.

There are plenty of Latina actresses that no one’s ever heard of… Some are really brown, some are light-skinned, and some look like they’re Caucasian, but it’s like we only want to identify with a certain kind of look and celebrate that under the guise that this is a ‘Latina actress.’

Emily Dickinson
My personal life is the same. At the end of the day, this is just a job. I love what I do, and it’s a great job. But it’s like my alter ego. There’s Chris Brown the singer. And there’s Christopher Brown, the down-home Tappahannock boy that plays video games and basketball and hangs out.
Chris Brown

Joseph Lowery
Sometimes tender, sometimes spiral-eyed-but always, as we say, ‘of a mind’ -Lily Brown’s sonorous and cerebral poems can fire synapses you never knew you had. If you’re careful, Rust or Go Missing will keep you on the edge of your head.

Just about the entirety of the first album, ‘Brown Sugar,’ I wrote it, the majority of that record in my bedroom in Richmond. And all of the demos for it were done on a four-track in my bedroom.

Im married to a white man, and then my daughter came out looking like the whitest white child with blonde hair and blue eyes. And Im like, Omigosh, now what am I going to do? She has my moms features and is lighter than my husband. And my boy is browner than I am. Brown eyes and really tan.
Karyn Parsons
Women now influence the majority of consumer purchases. It is women’s votes that will secure victory at the next election, hence the altogether delicious spectacle of Messrs Brown and Cameron vying to tell stories about broken nights and childcare as men once boasted of goals scored or pheasants bagged.
Allison Pearson
I was a big J. Geils fan, a Steppenwolf fan and a Savoy Brown fan.
George Thorogood
We love the sight of the brown and ruddy earth; it is the color of life, while a snow-covered plain is the face of death. Yet snow is but the mask of the life-giving rain; it, too, is the friend of man, the tender, sculpturesque, immaculate, warming, fertilizing snow.

John Milton
We faced police dogs when we fought for justice for Mike Brown in Ferguson in 2014.
Cori Bush
I’m coming from a Ginuwine and Usher background: slow and smooth songs. And that’s why I really connected to Sam Cooke, because he was just very smooth. It’s not like the James Brown types, which is all great stuff, but he was totally set apart from those guys.
Leon Bridges
You know, I dont play the race card a lot. Im half-black, half-white, and Im proud of – my skin is brown. The world sees me as a black man, but my mother didnt raise me as a black man. She didnt raise me as a white guy.

Alexander Theroux
I think my main two songs are ‘FWU’ and ‘Get Away.’ ‘FWU’ made a cool point because it came out right after Chris Brown’s ‘Loyal’ came out. I combated it with ‘FWU,’ a song that basically says, ‘These women are loyal.’

Helen Keller
Granted: I AM an inmate of a mental hospital; my keeper is watching me, he never lets me out of his sight; there’s a peep-hole in the door, and my keeper’s eye is the shade of brown that can never see through a blue-eyed type like me.
Gunter Grass
I always have really fresh, hormone-free, additive-free chicken, healthy veggies, and brown rice in the fridge to grab because I’m always on the go.
Laura Prepon
And close at hand, the basket stood With nuts from brown October’s wood. And close at hand, the basket stood With nuts from brown October’s wood.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Every revolutionary thinker in America, White, Black, Brown or Red, never got the true representation from the corporate-controlled media.
Louis Farrakhan
I look forward to putting out the new CD and doing the television performances to show everyone that B. Brown is back. In fact, I never left.
Bobby Brown
I had this desk alongside the most beautiful Australian 18-year-old girl with long brown hair, and I got up enough nerve to ask her for a date.
Bil Keane
So basically, Travis Scott took files from Tommy Brown and took them to Kanye and said he produced them and it was on video. He took a song I had written a hook to and took it to Teyana Taylor for her to do and change a little bit.
Victoria Monet
Gordon Brown now bestrides politics and the media like the Colossus of Dunfermline. Whatever happened to Tony Blair?
Austin Mitchell
Psy is fantastic. He’s shifted the planet. He’s got the whole world dancing. And it’s a rarity in this world. Only four people made that happen in history – James Brown, Michael Jackson, yours truly and Psy.
MC Hammer
David Cameron has a different style to Gordon Brown.
Louis Susman
I meant to do my work today
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree
And a butterfly flitted across the field
And all the leaves were calling me.
Richard Le Gallienne
Those who say the Rosary daily and wear the Brown Scapular and who do a little more, will go straight to Heaven.
Alphonsus Liguori
Political elites look increasingly interchangeable: Blair, Brown, and Cameron have all tried to provide cover for the surrender of sovereignty to foreign investors with invocations of ‘British’ values, and, more opportunistically, anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Pankaj Mishra
The U.S. prison system, over all, disproportionately affects black and brown people, but people of color are overrepresented to a greater degree in private prisons.
Clint Smith
If envy is red and doubt is black then happiness is brown. I looked from the little brown stone to the tiny brown freckle to her huge brown eyes.
Annabel Pitcher
I wanted so badly to be straight like my friends. But I couldn’t change it any more than I could change having brown eyes. And I knew I would never fit into what kids thought was normal.
Cat Cora
I graduated from Brown in 2001, moved to New York, and spent a year and a half just looking up ‘Backstage’ magazine auditions and grinding.
David Walton
I got to college and saw all of my friends going to these other schools and thought, ‘You know, college is just a blank slate.’ And I had an opportunity to go to different schools, but I chose Brown because it was unique and allowed you to be yourself as an individual and like I said, it’s a blank slate.
Masi Oka
There have been many great musicians that, Clifford Brown is one great example, I mean he died very early, 25.
Sonny Rollins
It is not easy to stop brown envelope because journalists are part of the society
Dele Momodu
The Brown decision promised that every child, regardless of the color of his or her skin, would have unequivocal access to quality education and an equal opportunity to pursue his/her dreams.
Ed Markey
As a kid, there are some things you looked forward to. You looked forward to Charlie Brown during Halloween and you looked forward to Monday Night Football.
Nick Ferguson
It is bad enough to be white and poor; it is worse still to be black, or brown, and female, and young, and poor. Simply said, race makes class hurt more.
Michael Eric Dyson
John Brown was tried for treason, murder, and inciting slaves to insurrection.
John Sergeant Wise
Every producer I have met has asked me to change my hair. I have always said ‘No.’ I finally change it for me… and now everyone in the business is like, ‘You have to go back to having brown hair.’
Marissa Jaret Winokur
Sippin’ on that brown stuff
Got you feeling like you found love,
Or maybe it was just luck.
But honestly…it’s probably none of the above.
My favorite song I ever wrote is ‘Yeah 3x’ because it was my first placement. It was with a great artist, Chris Brown, and I couldn’t believe it at the time. Honestly, I still can’t really believe it! It is the first time someone ever gave me a shot, so that is my favorite.
Sevyn Streeter
I’m sad because I want to bow out of my race and leave my beautiful identity? Chinese love Chinese. They love their little slant eyed, pale brown skinned babies. Pakistanis love their culture.Jewish people love their culture. A lot of Catholics want to marry Catholics because the want their religion to stay the same.
Muhammad Ali
Invention flags, his brain goes muddy, and black despair succeeds brown study.
William Congreve
Chris Brown is a fantastic artist and songwriter and to be able to work with him was kind of unbelievable.
Joe Jonas
It’s weird, but I don’t feel like think I deserve any of the attention. There’s really nothing but one audition for a Disney Channel movie that separates me from 2,000 other brown-haired, blue-eyed guys in L.A., you know?
Zac Efron
Every tribe needs a good front man to sell the program. Who better to convince the Middle East to give up the oil, than a brown man with a Muslim name?
Lenny Bruce
Everything today has been heavy and brown. Bring me a Unicorn to ride about the town.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Boughs have their fruit and blossom
At all times of the year;
Rivers are running over
With red beer and brown beer.
William Butler Yeats
I always have Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation, Bobbi Brown’s Jenna lipstick, and my Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer.
Ella Eyre
Even Crazy Horses is a good song, by the Osmonds. I’ve known many bands who have covered that. It’s just a great song. I bought it in a brown, paper bag because I didn’t want anyone to know I had it.
Joe Elliott
The scumbags are taking over the streets. I don’t know what David Cameron and Gordon Brown are going to do about it. It all goes back to the Thatcher (Margaret Thatcher) years. It sounds like a clichГ© but that’s when the rot set in.
Noel Gallagher
My mom and dad would take me all over. One night we’d be at the Apollo watching James Brown, and then I’d be at the Joffrey Ballet. It was that kind of scene.
Lenny Kravitz
African-Americans who might have disagreed with candidate Obama’s left-of-center politics voted for him in 2008 because electing a candidate with brown skin was too historic an opportunity to miss.
Alveda King
Steaming offers no opportunity for either seasoning or developing the brown, crisp textures that sauteing and roasting afford.
Samin Nosrat
I think I’ve been very fortunate, considering the obstacles that I had to deal with, you know, just being – by virtue of being a brown, lovely, brown-skinned man. But on the other hand, I’ve been able to make a good living, and I’ve been able to take care of my family, which is most important to me.
Billy Dee Williams
If we are going to list guitar influences, the biggest one by far is Wes Montgomery. Also, Gary Burton was obviously huge for me in a number of ways. But beyond that, Clifford Brown, Miles Davis and Freddie Hubbard.
Pat Metheny
Western European societies are unprepared for the massive immigration of brown-skinned peoples cooking strange foods and maintaining different standards of hygiene… All immigrants bring exotic customs and attitudes, but Muslim customs are more troublesome than most.
Daniel Pipes
I’m vegetarian and stick to a strict health regime of brown rice, tofu, salads and soya milk. When I’m at home in Somerset, I buy almost everything in the local farmshops including Barleymow’s in Chard. I always get organic – I like happy hens.
Kate O’Mara
When I see other working actresses that are brown, I get so excited. I get so excited when I see Zoe Kravitz, Janelle Monae, Taraji P. Henson, Ava Duvernay, and all these beautiful women working.
Kat Graham
When I was pregnant, I prayed that my daughter would have brown, green, or grey eyes.
Viv Albertine
I used to take taekwondo and made it to brown belt.
Stacey King
I see music in colours. I love music that’s black, pink, purple or red – but I hate music that’s green, yellow or brown.
Charli XCX
Along the wide curving moat surrounding the palace, rows of cherry trees announced the end of their seasonal beauty. Some of the trees were weeping: blossoms in white and palest pink, ponderous with decreptitude, eddying on the brown water, stirred by the paddling of ducks.
John Burnham Schwartz
My best party friend…? Fifi Brown. And Poppy Delevingne. She’s so fun and so inclusive – she really is the glue.
Alexa Chung
A guy like James Brown has walked the walk, talked the talk. I can’t disrespect James Brown in any kind of way. In my household, the adults tell you where to get off at.
Eric B.
The first thing Fontana did was get me to change my hair colour from light brown to red, and the songwriter Mitch Murray suggested I change my name from Pauline Matthews to Kiki Dee.
Kiki Dee
The kakapo is a bird out of time. If you look one in its large, round, greeny-brown face, it has a look of serenely innocent incomprehension that makes you want to hug it and tell it that everything will be all right, thought you know that it probably will not be.
Douglas Adams
Sherrod Brown, in the House, was one of 66 members of the House to vote against the Patriot Act, and he continues to vote against the Patriot Act, to deny our law enforcement the tools they need to go against terror.
Mike DeWine
My first choice was to work it out with Larry Brown. I needed Larry and I gave him 50 million bucks. This is a situation that I’m in and I’ll handle it and I’ll make it work.
Isaiah Thomas
I think Chris Brown gets kind of dismissed as a gay writer, and I think Chris’s books are really, really smart. I wish his books sold a little more widely.
Chuck Palahniuk
As a woman, as a Jew, as a lesbian, as a labor leader in a time of great anti-union animus, I know that other people project their biases on me. But it is nothing like the experience of our African-American brothers and sisters, especially black and brown men and boys.
Randi Weingarten
When I was at Brown. In other words, I’d heard about [H.P. Lovecraft], but I didn’t pay that much attention till I happened to go to a meeting about it. And then I got just totally turned on.
Paul Laffoley
I’m sure no intelligent white person, in his or her right white mind, want black men and women marrying their white sons and daughters and in return introducing their grandchildren to half brown, kinky haired black people.
Muhammad Ali
Mrs. James, my fifth-grade teacher, introduced us to some of the great literature of African American culture. I won my first blue ribbon reciting the vernacular poems of Paul Lawrence Dunbar, in particular “Little Brown Baby.”
Michael Eric Dyson
When I was growing up, I always felt a bit like I didn’t quite fit in, a feeling that perhaps still lingers in the background to this very day. I was the small brown girl in the big white suburb.
Konnie Huq
Bears are extremely human, even down to their footprints. But I am also a fly fisherman, so I have fished beside brown bears in Alaska and was once charged by a black bear. I love bears.
Joseph Monninger
That stupid Charlie Brown! He had the nerve to say I’m not perfect!” “So I suppose you hit him, huh?” “Rats! I knew I forgot something!
Charles M. Schulz
At Brown, I trained in West African dance and drumming.
Sophie Hawley-Weld
Matt Brown did exactly what he said he was going to do. He kicked my butt. But it was a war. I would love to do it again. Matt Brown’s a good dude and a great fighter. He’s made it up to the top and man, he’s a monster.
Stephen Thompson
I still don’t think I’ve ever read a Nancy Drew book; I probably read three or four ‘Hardy Boys’ books when I was 10, 11, 12, and I didn’t love them at the time. Even then, they felt dated to me, like the word chum – ‘my chum and I.’ However, the ‘Encyclopedia Brown’ books, I read all of them.
Rob Thomas
Someone once threw me a small, brown, hairy kiwi fruit, and I threw a wastebasket over it until it was dead.
Erma Bombeck
I juice everything! Whether it’s beet, carrot, or apple, I’ll juice it. I always keep brown rice in the kitchen. I’ll often pack a cooler full of food to have throughout the day when I’m busy.
Misty May-Treanor
I always get stopped by security and immigration, telling me, ‘Tell me who the terrorist is, or we won’t stamp your passport!’ The last time that somebody did that to me – at LAX, actually – I was like, ‘Hey, don’t ever ask a brown girl that in an American airport!’
Priyanka Chopra
I think brown marks a reunion of peoples, an end to ancient wanderings. Rival cultures and creeds conspire with Spring to create children of a beauty, perhaps of a harmony, previously unknown. Or long forgotten.
Richard Rodriguez
The first record I heard as a kid? My dad is a great soul and blues fan, so he showed me James Brown. That was my first stuff, and I loved it.
I wouldn’t call myself a synaesthete in the sense that Nabokov was. But I’ll talk about a sound as being cold blue or dark brown. For descriptive purposes, yes, I often see colors when I’m listening to music and think, ‘Oh, there’s not enough sort of yellowy stuff in here, or not enough white.’
Brian Eno
Sugar crystallizes something in our American Soul. It is emblematic of all Industrial Processes. And of the idea of becoming white. White Being equated with pure and ‘true’ it takes a lot of energy to turn brown things into white things. A lot of pressure.
Kara Walker
I’ve got one look that I always stick to when I’m doing my own make-up. It’s warm, brown colours on the eyes, bushy brows, highlighted skin and a bit of bronzer. That’s it really, and a nude lip.
Rochelle Humes
For a nothing, Charlie Brown, you’re really something!
Charles M. Schulz
What first caught my eye about Rihanna was an interview she did with Diane Sawyer after the Chris Brown incident, where she was very articulate, very poised, obviously a smart girl who talked about a very traumatic experience.
Peter Berg
When Prince and James Brown were doing live sessions… recording a band is not easy. It’s all delicate, important stuff you want to make sure you’re doing the right way.
Everybody needs to show respect to each others’ ways and the cultural life that you get on this planet. Don’t get caught up on ‘I’m brown, black, white, red, blue, whatever.’ You gotta ask, what were you called before 1492? All these names we’re using now are just an illusion made to keep us fighting each other.
Afrika Bambaataa
I looked at all the superstars. What is their different thing? Their hair. Beatles, Elvis, James Dean, James Brown, Marilyn Monroe. I wanted to be a star. I said, ‘I have to fix my hair.’
Rob Pilatus
To allow injustice and inequality invites a Ferguson to your community. We must stand together, black, white, brown, red, and yellow and fight for justice and equality for all. It’s the only way to avoid more Fergusons.
Jesse Jackson
When people say things like, ‘Oh, I can’t find black or brown whatever position it is,’ I wanted to be clear that we exist in droves. When I tell people, ‘Hey, share your work, share your LinkedIn,’ it’s with the ultimate goal that somebody on that thread gets hired, or something positive happens.
Luvvie Ajayi
When I was younger, I was mousey brown and started putting in highlights with each child. By the time I had my third baby, I was pretty much a blonde, and I stayed that way until I was in my late 50s.
Maye Musk
I love Sly Stone and James Brown and Stevie Wonder, and I want my music to reflect some of that.
Al Jarreau
Each Fall the graves of my grandfathers call me, the brown
hills and red gullies of mississippi send out their electric
messages, galvanizing my genes.
Etheridge Knight
I come from oldest country in the world and everybody know when Iron Sheik see the bad person like the OJ Simpson or jabroni Chris Brown or the good man like the Ray Lewis, I respect them or break their back.
The Iron Sheik
My colleague Bill Keegan has written a very short book (‘Saving the World?’) on an unlikely topic – he is the first economist to try to rehabilitate Gordon Brown.
Simon Hoggart
I had a niche. And my niche was that I was brown. So it’s like, ‘Great, I get to go up for all these ‘brown parts.” I call them ‘brown parts’ because that’s what they are. That’s not to be resentful, because I loved playing those parts – I got to meet so many cool actors.
Kayvan Novak
Debussy–A pretty girl with one blue eye and one brown one.
H. L. Mencken
If Jesus Christ came back today, He and I would get into our brown corduroys and go to the nearest jean store and overturn the racks of blue denim.
Ian Anderson
I met this cowboy with a brown paper hat, paper waistcoat and paper trousers. He was wanted for rustling.
Chic Murray
James Brown lives, as long as someone steps out of their body and dances uncontrollably.
Al Sharpton
When I graduated from Brown after majoring in women’s studies, I made my first PBS documentary, ‘Women of Substance.’ My first feature documentary was called ‘American Hollow,’ which I did for HBO and was at the Sundance Film Festival.
Rory Kennedy
Do you believe in an afterlife?” the gunslinger asked him as Brown dropped three ears of hot corn onto his plate. Brown nodded. “I think this is it.
Stephen King
I did an episode of The Profiler.
I actually worked on the last episode of Murphy Brown.
Alice Barrett
I’ve really learned a lot from Zac Brown over the years. He is someone that I consider to be one of my best friends, and besides my parents, he has taught me more than anyone else. Zac is, by nature, a giving and understanding person.
Coy Bowles
Of all the men who were said to be my contemporaries, it seemed to me that John Brown was the only one who had not died.
Henry David Thoreau
What colors are the eyes of Anubis?” “Brown…Duh.
Rick Riordan
Prince is from the school of James Brown, and I love James Brown because of all the great rhythms he plays.
Miles Davis
In life, I’m like Molly Brown. I’ve had tough times along the way and gone through experiences that many women have gone through. But I ain’t down yet.
Debbie Reynolds
Brown versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem.
Bill Cosby
Marilyn Monroe had thick, dark eyebrows even though her hair was platinum and it looked gorgeous. It worked because she had brown eyes – dark eyes can handle a dark brow even if the hair is blond.
Anastasia Soare
Dan Brown, is a character from Foucault’s Pendulum! I invented him. He shares my characters’ fascinations – the world conspiracy of Rosicrucians, Masons, and Jesuits. The role of the Knights Templar. The hermetic secret. The principle that everything is connected. I suspect Dan Brown might not even exist.
Umberto Eco
The full resources of the Department of Justice have been committed to the investigation into Michael Brown’s death.
Eric Holder
I always try to be healthy – brown rice, brown pasta.
Laila Rouass
Anything salty and crunch is a world of perfection to me. Put chips in front of me, and I will eat to the bottom of the bag. Because I have the tendency to do this, I found these amazing Eden Brown Rice Chips. They’re the perfect amount of salt and crunch, and there’s nothing in them.
Tamara Taylor
Jeri Brown has it all – adventurous spirit, superb musicianship, and technique to spare.
Fred Hersch
Brown bird welcomes white wave. Wander no more, dear traveler.
Ann Aguirre
You know, I don’t play the race card a lot. I’m half-black, half-white, and I’m proud of – my skin is brown. The world sees me as a black man, but my mother didn’t raise me as a black man. She didn’t raise me as a white guy.
Shemar Moore
When we heard we were topping the bill over James Brown we couldn’t believe it. We tried for two days to get it changed round – I mean you can’t follow an act like that.
Mick Jagger
James Brown is the reason I play guitar.
Kevin Eubanks
Because makeup happens in my life as an actor, face wash is a key. I use La Mer cleansing gel every morning, every night, sometimes three times a day. Also, I use Bobbi Brown’s Hydrating Face Tonic that you put on after you wash your face. It just rejuvenates your face. It takes away that morning face.
Eric Stonestreet
While I understand the passions and the anger that arise over the death of Michael Brown, giving into that anger by looting or carrying guns, and even attacking the police only serves to raise tensions and stir chaos.
Barack Obama
When I was a kid, what captivated me about detective fiction were the puzzles more than the detectives or their enemies. And as I’ve gotten older, I see a lot of merit in setting your investigative sights higher than figuring out how someone stole Encyclopedia Brown’s bicycle.
Mark Waid
Chris Brown, he biggest jabroni. He have good name before he made a lot of money now he mess it up. What kind of man that beat the women? He no-good low life.
The Iron Sheik
Larry Brown had quite a resume.
Stan Van Gundy
You could look at Tim Brown, you walk in the locker room and you knew you were going to get consistency with him as a person and as a player.
Charles Woodson
I really like red hair. I think if you have brown hair, you want blond hair; if you have blond hair, you want blue hair. We always want what we don’t have. It takes a while to admit, Hey, it’s just part of me.
Amybeth McNulty
The James Brown we saw tended to be the James Brown we chose to see: as the caped crusader of funk and soul, adored by millions, or as the face in a seemingly endless series of mug shots. The ways in which he appealed to and appalled different audiences made Brown a kind of national Rorschach test.
Jonathan Miles
Just to assassinate Michael Brown’s character is wrong.
William Lacy Clay, Jr.
I just remember falling in love with the old Chris Brown music, where it was, like, that real R&B, and I love the radio smashes he’s put out since then, but I go back to his older music for that R&B.
With everything I’ve done from “Jackie Brown” on, I got really into really writing more prose in the – in what you’re calling the stage directions, all right, and consequently my scripts have gotten bigger and bigger, and cut to “Kill Bill Volume 1 and 2.”
Quentin Tarantino
I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being – neither white, black, brown, or red.
Malcolm X
I’ve learned to love my brown eyes.
I loved Belle in ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ I just wanted to be her. I’m a brunette, so I think I kind of cling to all those princesses that have brown hair. I just wanted to be them.
Kara Lindsay
Frankly, to be honest, I hadn’t worked for two years before ‘Murphy Brown.’ It’s a nice illusion now to think of all of us as terribly successful and talented people at the top of our profession, but that’s hindsight. I had to pray for a job like this.
Charles Kimbrough
In the West, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber are the face of their songs.
Armaan Malik
The music I was really listening to in 1968 was James Brown, the great guitar player Jimi Hendrix, and a new group… Sly and the Family Stone, led by Sly Stewart from San Francisco.
Miles Davis
I think ‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys’ in particular is very good, though I do find that perhaps the language is a bit strong for a family, but it is very popular, and I think it’s very funny.
David Jason
It’s grossly unfair to judge Walter Payton solely on the yards he gains. He is a complete football player, better than Jim Brown, better than O.J. Simpson.
Jim Finks
When you win, everything is everything. But when you lose, it’s all about Allen Iverson and Larry Brown. When we win, I know that I get the praise and Larry Brown gets the praise, but when we lose, it’s on me and Larry Brown. That’s something that I have to learn to accept and deal with.
Allen Iverson
The great joy of doing ‘The Daily Show’ for me is that I get to sit on the fence between cultures. I am commenting on the absurdity of both sides as an outsider and insider. Sometimes I’m playing the brown guy, and sometimes I’m not, but the best stuff I do always goes back to being a brown kid in a white world.
Aasif Mandvi
I’ve been trying to prove myself since I picked up this brown ball at the age of 7.
Mitchell Trubisky
I saw endless depths of brown, the depths I’d fallen into so many times. No red rings. Dimitri…was not a Strigoi. And he was weeping.
Richelle Mead
Derren Brown doesn’t really predict the lottery numbers. But there is an enormous amount of entertainment in there.
Peter Molyneux
Strawberries are like tomatoes for me; I just won’t eat them year round. I’ll happily wait for them to come into season, then I gorge like a brown bear eating salmon before hibernation.
Brad Leone
I doubt if I shall ever outgrow the excitement bordering on panic which I feel the instant I know I have a strong, unmanageable fish, be it brook trout, brown trout, cutthroat, rainbow, steelhead or salmon on my line.
Ed Weeks
I know a lot of police officers who are on the force to do the right thing to protect people. But how can you deny this pattern, this disturbing pattern, Alton Sterling, Mr. Castile in my own community, Philando Castile, but then Tamir Rice, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland?
Keith Ellison
I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains,
Of rugged mountain ranges, of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons, I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror – the wide brown land for me!
Dorothea Mackellar
A myth is the name of a terrible lie told by a smelly little brown person to a man in a white suit with a pair of binoculars.
David Antin
The more affiliates I have the more I can sit back and let my brown belt and black belts do the work.
Eddie Bravo
Sam has brown hair and very, very pretty green eyes. The kind of green that doesn’t make a big deal about itself.
Stephen Chbosky
Don’t you know sugar is brown first? White folks couldn’t stand the fact that something so sweet shared the same color as the people who cut the cane, slopped the hogs and picked the cotton. So they bleached it to resemble them, and now they done gone and fooled everybody. You included.
Bernice L. McFadden
I know the Pollock novel. Read it last year and liked it. Daniel Woodrell is awesome. I especially like the book Winter’s Bone, and the film made from it. Larry Brown is terrific, all his work, but for me Joe in particular, also a good film, but a much better novel.
Joe R. Lansdale
I started playing with this band, the Polyester Players. It was my introduction into funk. So I went and got a James Brown record. ‘Black Caesar’ is a film score, but it’s so dope.
Kamasi Washington
Did you ever feel as if the whole world was a tuxedo, and you were a pair of brown shoes?
George Gobel
Everybody asks me, ‘Hey, what’s your most memorable fight?’ For me, it’s definitely the Matt Brown fight.
Stephen Thompson
She said to the Daisy girl with her big brown eyes: ‘I will not have it plain. No. Fancy. It must be fancy!’ She meant her future. A moon-daisy dropped to the floor, down from her hair, like a faintly derisive sign from heaven.
Angela Carter
I like a kind of dark, bronze-y brown smoky eye with maybe some mascara, some contouring and stuff, but I don’t like wearing black or pinks. I like it more tonal.
I’ve thought from the start that a parallel federal investigation into the death of Michael Brown is important. I also believe that our state and local elected officials have been given a responsibility by the people who they work for to get to the bottom of this tragedy.
Roy Blunt
My teens and 20s were spent lying on sheets of tinfoil in the weak English sun, covered in baby oil. In Greece and France I would burn, then turn a dark brown.
Jane Green
I just feel like if I start opening the door to talking about my university experience, then people just kind of… own everything. There was a lot of stuff a couple of years ago saying that I was bullied at Brown and awful things like that, none of which were true.
Emma Watson
We can revolutionize the attitude of inner city brown and black kids to learning. We need a civil rights movement within the African-American community.
Henry Louis Gates
I can’t tell Black people to fight a war that is Israel’s war. What kind of leader will you be, or should I be, to allow these babies Black, white and brown, to fight Israel’s war, because Zionists dominate the government of the United States of America and her banking system.
Louis Farrakhan
I wanted to see if the American man in plain brown pants
and a bare torso could speak profound things.
Ted Shawn
Hotel tea is when you have to mix together a plastic envelope containing too much sugar, a small plastic pot of something which is not milk but has curdled anyway, and a thin brown packet seemingly containing the ashes of a cremated mole.
Frank Muir
Happiness is getting a brown gravy stain on a brown dress.
Totie Fields
Defund the police does not mean abolish the police. It means a dramatic reduction in the number of police in our poor communities and particularly our poor Black and Brown communities.
Jamaal Bowman
Our courts’ decisions do not permeate the public consciousness – we have no equivalent of the Brown v Board of Education ruling which outlawed racial segregation, or of Roe v Wade, which enshrined a woman’s right to choose not just into law but into the public imagination as well.
Emily Thornberry
Our first ever live gig was in front of Buckingham Palace, an Olympic event attended by some of the royal family, and we had to follow James Brown.
Tom Fletcher
Strangely enough, the legend of John Brown, who was clearly crazy, helped the abolitionist cause and is thought to have precipitated the American Civil War.
Justin Cartwright
The first Emmys I went to was in 1990 when the five nominees for best comedy were ‘Designing Women,’ ‘Golden Girls,’ ‘Murphy Brown,’ ‘Cheers,’ ‘Wonder Years.’ Three and a half were created by women.
Nell Scovell
Peforming as James Brown, I didn’t really have to go deep in my soul the way I do as Charles Bradley.
Charles Bradley
I’m still a reservist. We have three drilling reservists in the Senate. Senator Graham serves in the Air Force, Senator Brown serves in the Army, and I serve in the Navy.
Mark Kirk
My favorite pair of shoes I’ve worn for a role would have to be the brown Vera Wang combat boots that Jo wears in her everyday life away from the hospital on ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ I love them because they are also something I would wear in my everyday life.
Camilla Luddington
If we begin by the conversation that some people shouldn’t be encouraged to come to the polls, that does nothing to help us. And just as a practical matter, when we don’t encourage voters to come out to the polls, the people who stay home quickest are black and brown folk.
Marc Lamont Hill
After the war, I returned to Minnesota, from which I soon moved to Brown University, and a year later, to Columbia University where I remained from 1947 until 1958.
George Stigler
One of the things that’s influenced me musically was my experience at Brown University. I was surrounded by musicians that I really admired, and felt challenged to come up with music, lyrics, and recordings that stood up to the expectations of those musicians and myself.
Lisa Loeb
Well, maybe it’s because of the rumors they had going around, you know, they had some rumors about Dennis Brown was in the hospital and all that. Well, that is all bull!
Dennis Brown
When white and black and brown and every other color decide they’re going to live together as Christians, then and only then are we going to see an end to these troubles.
Barry Goldwater
I am pretty standard, the way I dress, but matching the belt to the shoe – you know, brown belt, brown shoe, black belt black shoe – that’s completely out of the window! I had no idea.
Mark Consuelos
Painting it was hard graft… in addition red, yellow, brown ochre, black, terra sienna, bistre, and the result is a red-brown that varies from bistre to deep wine-red and to pale, blond reddish.
Vincent Van Gogh
Stereotypical vegetarian food looks gray and brown.
Yotam Ottolenghi
I was there when Gordon Brown basically was taking over – so right in the middle of that transition. It was fantastic; I learnt a lot.
Jacinda Ardern
The cure for the Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner tragedies is not education or exposure. It’s the Gospel. So, finally, I’M ENCOURAGED because the Gospel gives mankind hope.
Benjamin Watson
When I’m not on set, I’m either fresh-faced to give my skin some breathing time, or if I’m going out, I prefer more of a nude palette, usually a mauve lip and some light brown eyeshadow!
Madelaine Petsch
Make-up wise Charlotte Tilbury, Estee Lauder, and Bobbi Brown are my favourites.
Vogue Williams
The only color I don’t have is navy brown.
Yogi Berra
I try to write in plain brown blocks of American speech but occasionally set in an ancient word or a strange word just to startle the reader a little bit and to break up the monotony of the plain American cadence.
James Laughlin
My wife [Tina Brown] co-founded the Daily Beast, so I have no hostility to the web or Internet. A number of print friends of mine regard it as the worst thing that’s ever happened, but I don’t.
Harold Evans
Art morphs with what’s going on in the world. We say ‘Ferguson’; we don’t say ‘Mike Brown.’ Just like we say ‘Selma,’ not ‘Jimmie Lee Jackson.’ There is something startling about the people in a particular place, a city or a small town, rising up and taking to the streets.
Ava DuVernay
Ah! Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans! I was unfortunate enough in my youth to come across a vomit-flavored one, and since then I’m afraid I’ve rather lost my liking for them — but I think I’ll be safe with a nice toffee, don’t you?” He smiled and popped the golden-brown bean into his mouth. “Alas! Ear wax!
J. K. Rowling
All I wanted to do was be a hero… But do I ever get to be a hero? All I ever get to be is the stupid goat!” “Don’t be discouraged, Charlie Brown… In this life we live, there are always some bitter pills to be swallowed…” “If it’s all the same with you, I’d rather not renew my perscription!
Charles M. Schulz
Nothing feels as awful as pouring your heart out to some talk therapist, then realizing this so-called professional is actually vastly stupid and you’ve just professed your most secret secrets to some goon who’s wearing one brown sock and one blue sock.
Chuck Palahniuk
No disrespect to Matt Brown, he’s a great fighter, but I think I got and have what it takes to beat him.
Stephen Thompson
The insanely gorgeous competition documentary on surfing obsession, Step Into Liquid — directed by Dana Brown and photographed by John-Paul Beeghly in hypnotic gradations of aquamarine — will send you into a dream state.
Elvis Mitchell
If you are brown, black, Asian, or anything other than an English-speaking, highly-trained technician, the Republican Party doesn’t want you here.
Luis Gutierrez
Thinking back to boyhood days, I remember the bright sun on Harlem streets, the easy rhythms of black and brown bodies, the sounds of children streaming in and out of red brick tenements.
Walter Dean Myers
I am very indebted to southern writers and not just Flannery O’Connor. Also Harry Crews, Larry Brown, Tennessee Williams, Barry Hannah and William Gay.
Donald Ray Pollock
My uncle was the first brown person to have a market stall on Petticoat Lane in the 1960s. He worked his way up from the street. He was homeless, but eventually he got a car so he could sell from the boot. And by the 1980s, he was a millionaire wholesaling to companies like Topshop. So in a way, fashion put me in England.
Look, my friends, if I’m a racist, this doesn’t mean that I hate brown people
Tom Tancredo
One of my first festivals was Oxygen 2006. It had this amazing lineup with the Arctic Monkeys on their first or second album, the Strokes, Kings of Leon, the Magic Numbers and then the Who and James Brown. I waited in the pit for a good eight hours to see James Brown.
James Brown and Frank Sinatra are two different quantities in the universe. They represent two different experiences of the world.
Amiri Baraka
Before me, everything was black or navy blue or gray or brown or beige, things like that, for daytime. I began using shocking pink and ice blue and all kinds of bright colors. And I dyed furs.
Elsa Schiaparelli
LINUS: Where are you going for Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown? CHARLIE: My father, my mother, Sally, and I are all going to my grandmothers for dinner. SALLY: Do you want to come too, Linus? We can hold hands under the table. LINUS: BLECH!
Charles M. Schulz
I hate decaffeinated coffee. It’s useless brown water.
David Letterman
There’s a long history of saying certain people shouldn’t be voting. And, unfortunately, the people who are often left out of these conversations are people who are black and brown.
Marc Lamont Hill
Tessa was laying on her side, her brown hair spread over the pillow, watching Will, whose face was bent over the pages, with a look of tenderness in her eyes, a tenderness mirrored in the softness of Will’s voice as he read.
Cassandra Clare
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
Mark Dunn
Jolt is for Windows programmers. It’s typical IBM PC: it goes in brown and comes out yellow. Mountain Dew is for Macintosh programmers: it goes in yellow and comes out yellow. It’s WYSIWYP.
Guy Kawasaki
My favorite drag queens are Tammie Brown and Katya, so I like my drag queens a little left of sanity.
Trixie Mattel
Murphy Brown is doing better than I am. At least she knows she still has a job next year.
Dan Quayle
I learned many things from Professor Brown, including his philosophy toward research, but there is one thing he said that I recall with particular clarity: ‘Do research that will be in the textbooks.’ It is not easy to do such work, but this has remained my motto.
Akira Suzuki
I liked the taste of beer, its live, white lather, its brass-bright depths, the sudden world through the wet-brown walls of the glass, the tilted rush to the lips and the slow swallowing down to the lapping belly, the salt on the tongue, the foam at the corners.
Dylan Thomas
My hair’s naturally dirty-dishwater light brown. Ugly.
Mandy Moore
I would actually like to play Bobby Brown. To me, he was just the King of R&B at one point.
Lance Gross
It’s weird to me when an artist comes in, and the label says, ‘We want him to sound like Chris Brown,’ but he says he wants to sound like Sean Paul. There’s a huge disconnect – it’s like we’re making a product.
Bebe Rexha
Sherrod Brown and President Obama have lost the faith of Jewish Democrats.
Josh Mandel
Her eyes, walnut brown and shaded by fanned lashes, met mine. Held for a moment. Flew away.
Khaled Hosseini
He had the prettiest hair she had ever seen on a man: dark brown, almost black, and soft like sable, it fell down to his shoulders. She wondered what he’d do if she threw some mud in it. Probably kill her.
Ilona Andrews
You can’t shoot in sepia, so converting into black and white and then into brown makes everything feel less real.
Martin Parr
Architectural kitsch is most common in the commercial pop vernacular – typified by the Big Duck of 1931 in Flanders, New York, a Long Island roadside poultry stand resembling a duck, which Venturi and Scott Brown made a cult object through their writings.
Martin Filler
I was terribly gawky, too goofy to become a high-kicking cheerleader, with stringy brown hair and bad posture. Definitely nobody noticeable!
Helen Slater
I look into your great brown eyes, where love and loyal homage shine, and wonder where the difference lies between your soul and mine!.
J. G. Holland
I used the stormy gray and heather brown shadows from the Lilac Rose Eye Palette to create a soft smokey eye for Veronica Beard’s Spring 2013 show. The look was dramatic but delicate.
Bobbi Brown
I learned a lot during the Matt Brown fight.
Stephen Thompson
I like that Sleepy Brown guy who’s down with Andre. He’s so great.
The leaves that are green turn to brown. And they wither with the wind. And they crumble in your hand.
Paul Simon
After watching films of Jim Brown, I noticed that he never ran out of bounds. He always ran North and South and that’s what I turned my style into. I was a North and South runner.
Earl Campbell
Who is the third who walks always beside you? When I count, there are only you and I together But when I look ahead up the white road There is always another one walking beside you Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded I do not know whether a man or a woman -But who is that on the other side of you?
T. S. Eliot
All creatures must learn to coexist. That’s why the brown bear and the field mouse can share their lives in harmony. Of course, they can’t mate or the mice would explode.
Betty White
We had no revolutions to fear, nor fatigues to undergo; all our adventures were by the fireside, and all our migrations from the blue bed to the brown.
Oliver Goldsmith
I believe that all men, black and brown, and white, are brothers, varying, through Time and Opportunity, in form and gift and feature, but differing in no essential particular, and alike in soul and in the possibility of infinite development.
W. E. B. Du Bois
I’ll plant and water, sow and weed, Till not an inch of earth shows brown, And take a vow of each small seed To grow to greenness and renown: And then some day you’ll pass my way, See gold and crimson, bell and star, And catch my garden’s soul, and say: “How sweet these cottage gardens are!”
E. Nesbit
What is it that unites, on the left of British politics, George Orwell, Billy Bragg, Gordon Brown and myself? An understanding that identity and a sense of belonging need to be linked to our commitment to nationhood and a modern form of patriotism.
David Blunkett
We as African Americans knew that if we wanted to see change, we had to step up to the plate and make that change ourselves. Not everyone comes to that realization in their lives, but thank God Linda Brown’s father felt that way.
Ruby Bridges
Danny Ferry did a very good job when he was here and put the franchise up to a certain level, as did Mike Brown, and his contract had ended after five years, and, ultimately, both sides decided they wanted to do other things. No hard feelings at all there.
Dan Gilbert
I learned something important in my race against Senator Brown: voters want political leaders who are willing to break the partisan gridlock. They want fewer closed-door roadblocks and more public votes on legislation that could improve their lives.
Elizabeth Warren
Making love in the green grass behind the stadium with you my brown eyed girl.
Van Morrison
And my identity…I never really wondered about it because, unfortunately, I sounded like myself. People be saying I sound like Miles or Clifford Brown.
Wynton Marsalis
I do not believe that Darren Wilson should’ve been charged, but Brown should not have lost his life. Brown and Trayvon Martin should’ve gotten their butts kicked badly. They should’ve been handled physically, but they should not have been killed.
Niger Innis
Have you ever watched the jet cars race on the boulevard?…I sometimes think drivers don’t know what grass is, or flowers, because they never see them slowly…If you showed a driver a green blur, Oh yes! He’d say, that’s grass! A pink blur! That’s a rose garden! White blurs are houses. Brown blurs are cows.
Ray Bradbury
You should hear what my parents wanted to call me. It was between Brown Rice, Neon Hitch and Z. Ziggurat Zanzibar Zandorf. I’m not joking. Imagine fitting that on my passport!
Neon Hitch
Your shoes have to match your belt. That’s rule number one for guys. You can’t put the brown shoes with the black belt. Or a brown belt with a black wristwatch. Just don’t do it! Also, I don’t like boots with suits. And when you wear sneakers, make sure they go with your shirt.
Ashton Kutcher
tanith: have you called the police? fergus: they, uh, they said theyd call by this afternoon. tanith: tell them not to bother… im his doctor. beryl: what kind of doctor dresses in brown leather? tanith: the kind that looks good init
Derek Landy
They should probably have a James Brown aerobic tape. You would lose a lot of weight.
Chadwick Boseman
When Rose McDermott, a professor of political science at Brown University, got divorced two years ago, she noticed that a cluster of her friends were splitting up at around the same time.
Katie Hafner
I have olive skin, so if I’m in the sun for even 15 minutes, I turn brown.
Audrina Patridge
Lily Brown writes with and against things in poems that are coiled up tight as springs (or snakes). A believer in the power of the line, she writes, ‘I think the plastics/and sink them’ then ‘Where is the sand/man hiding the dirt.’ These terse, biting poems will make you look around and wonder.
Rae Armantrout
And I have by me, for my comfort, two strange white flowers – shriveled now, and brown and flat and brittle – to witness that even when mind and strength had gone, gratitude and a mutual tenderness still lived on in the heart of men.
H. G. Wells
Even the sky was grey. Grey and grey and greyer. The whole world grey, everywhere you look, everything grey except the eyes of the bride. The eyes of the bride were brown. Big and brown and full of fear.
George R. R. Martin
I’m certainly not the first author to tiptoe into the conspiratorial, religious-tinged territory, but – and I hate to break this to the faithful – neither is Dan Brown.
Simon Toyne
I’ve got a variety of things I like to listen to. I like R&B. I like Chris Brown. I like Nas. I like Jay Z. Rick Ross. Kanye West. I try to mix it up.
Tyrann Mathieu
When I was younger I didn’t feel I was represented in popular culture – you couldn’t get a brown doll in the shops and you didn’t see many brown people on TV.
Mandip Gill
Humans will always babble. If someone wants to tweet that they can’t decide whether to wear blue socks or brown socks, then fair enough. But when sharing becomes automated, I get the heebie-jeebies.
Charlie Brooker
I had a hard time when I came back to Sweden and started school, because I looked different. And we moved to a really small town on the west coast of Sweden, and there were no brown people around. It didn’t really get any better until I started music school at about 10 years old.
Seinabo Sey
I certainly enjoy Usher, Beyonce, Chris Brown, and there is Fantasia; these people will be around a while. They’ve got it. They’ve got the ‘it’ factor.
Aretha Franklin
School integration did not come to be the day after the Brown ruling was issued. Progress took years, and it took passion, strength, and courage from a large group of committed individuals.
Donna Brazile
With the notable exceptions of rum drinks, black beans, fat brown cigars, the smiles of pretty girls, hot yellow sunlight, and fat men with guitars and bongos playing mambos, rumbas, and boleros late into the night, nothing in Cuba comes easily.
Jonathan Miles
As before the collapse, the setting sun brushed the tiles, brought out the warm brown glow on the wallpaper, and hung the shadow of the birch on the wall as if it were a woman’s scarf.
Boris Pasternak
I think art can really serve to inspire a movement – and, of course, it has in the past. The Civil Rights movement wouldn’t have the same resonance without the songs from everyone from Pete Seeger to Odetta to James Brown.
Saul Williams
In ’87, I used to do this awful, awful James Brown impression.
Wanda Sykes
In America, I am brown; I’m ‘of colour’, so I would be offered Latin roles, and I’ve fought against that. I don’t want to be put in a category, to be just offered the same sort of thing. For me, it’s all about different roles, telling the stories of the great writers.
Santiago Cabrera
The choices politicians make must be based on values – not an arbitrary, axe-wielding approach to public spending or a dismal exchange between Gordon Brown and David Cameron about percentages that sounds like an argument between different book-keepers.
Nick Clegg
We don’t have a lot of narrative on TV or film, mainstream film, of brown queers. Latina queers, I can’t think of that many.
Tanya Saracho
Pictures aren’t made out of doctrines. Since the appearance of impressionism, the official salons, which used to be brown, have become blue, green, and red…But peppermint or chocolate, they are still confections.
Claude Monet
So now I’m rollin’ down Rodeo wit a shotgun, These people ain’t seen a brown skin man, Since their grandparents bought one
Zack de la Rocha
I just watched a James Brown video of him singing ‘I Feel Good,’ and then I kind of just copied off his moves. But I couldn’t do them properly, so they turned into my own moves.
Courtney Hadwin
I love to make scrubs at home. My favorite is a mixture of brown sugar and coconut oil. So simple yet so effective!
Ayesha Curry
The fact that women are very young in obtaining their civil rights and African-Americans are young in obtaining their civil rights, I think it’s about time that we extend that to all Americans, whether straight, gay, purple, green, black, brown.
Octavia Spencer
My all-time favorite TED talks are Brene Brown’s ‘The Power of Vulnerability’ and Sir Ken Robinson’s ‘Do Schools Kill Creativity.’
Alexis Ren
I love Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Usher, Mariah Carey… all that stuff.
Normani Kordei
What to wear? I could think of no guidelines on what we were wearing this season to a party forced on you to celebrate an unwanted engagement that might turn into a violent confrontation with a vengeful maniac. Clearly brown shoes were out, but beyond that nothing really seemed de rigueur.
Jeff Lindsay
Where was the closure for Michael Brown’s parents?
Marcia Fudge
When I’m home, I cook and try to eat really clean. I try to eat vegetables at every meal. I stay away from pasta and bread and have brown rice and potatoes instead.
Marisa Miller
I know my Easts and Tom Brown, you see, and they’re never happy unless their morality is being tried in the furnace and they can feel they are doing the right Christian thing and never mind the consequences to anyone else.
George MacDonald
Remember technology does not make good work. You can still write a poem on a brown paper bag, and haiku is just as profound as the pyramids.
James Turrell
I love being a Cleveland Brown.
Peyton Hillis
There’s something strange about you-” she started to say. Oh, well, thanks!” he chuckled, his brown eyes twinkling at her.
Regina Doman
Andy Brown is one of our most interesting and exciting younger poets. With its love of ideas and language, his work demonstrates that there need be no barriers in poetry; that the philosophical, the lyrical and the playful can be combined in work of assured and generous vision.
John Burnside
Doc Brown had a feverous imagination. He was constantly coming up with new ways and solutions to various issues, and time travel was one of them. I was just very inspired by being able to portray somebody of that sort. He’s a man of tremendous energy and excitement about discovery.
Christopher Lloyd
My love for Dan Brown knows no bounds. It literally has no mass.
Salman Rushdie
A brown lip liner will affect a red lipstick differently than a red lip liner.
Jillian Hervey
So laugh, lads, and quaff, lads, twill make you stout and hale; through all my days, I’ll sing the praise of brown October ale.
Reginald De Koven
Did John Brown fail? John Brown began the war that ended American slavery and made this a free Republic.
Frederick Douglass
I would have written ‘Brown Girl Dreaming’ if no one had ever wanted to buy it, if it went nowhere but inside a desk drawer that my own children pulled out one day to find a tool for survival, a symbol of how strong we are and how much we’ve come through.
Jacqueline Woodson
My eyeliner is this Kat Von D Tattoo Liner… I’ve tried every single eyeliner, and this is the best. I use it in Mad Max Brown.
Elsa Hosk
I founded the ‘me too’ movement in 2006 because I wanted to find a way to connect with the black and brown girls in the program I ran.
Tarana Burke
The other day the grass was brown, now its green cuz I ain’t give up. Never surrender.
DJ Khaled
My favorite healthy foods are Jamaican chicken soup, Jamaican chicken stew peas, Jamaican brown stew chicken, plantains and banana chips.
Sanya Richards-Ross
Looking the way I look, whenever anybody’s looking for a light brown funny guy, I get the call… I’m 100 percent Greek, but I look like I could be Indian or Middle Eastern or Hispanic. If it’s ethnic, they’ll try and put me in it.
Jason Mantzoukas
You also want to look at how the tax system encourages and rewards pension saving. I have set as an ambition reversing the effects of Gordon Brown’s tax raid which heralded the beginning of the age of responsibility. We are looking at some very specific tax measures on how we can encourage saving.
George Osborne
My name is Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown. I am a devoted servant of Allah, and an unwavering devotee to His cause. For more than 30 years, I have been tormented and persecuted by my enemies for reasons of race and belief.
H. Rap Brown
I always was missing that female brown queer perspective, and I think in ‘Vida’ we have that. A lot of things I wanted to touch on and deal with, I get to do here.
Tanya Saracho
I like to listen to African music; I like to listen to Brazilian music that’s not just Choro. I love to listen to Radiohead, I like to listen to James Brown – any music.
Anat Cohen
In the late 1960s, I was working as an usher for the New York stage production of ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.’
Billy Crystal
In the end, the great leveler in any sport is performance on the field or on the court. Kids don’t care what language players speak or if they eat tacos, rice, or sauerkraut. They don’t care if they’re white, black, or brown.
Cheech Marin
I’m no dancer. I got rhythm, I can dance if I need to, but I’m not Chris Brown. He’s an amazing dancer. If I’m not going to be amazing at it, I’m not gon’ do it. I’m gonna do what works for me, and you’re going to feel it ’cause it’s me.
Trey Songz
I’d like to play a mixture of Lucille Ball meets Murphy Brown meets Glenn Close on ‘Damages,’ to keep a little bit of the darkness in there. I like dark comedy a lot.
Joelle Carter
James Brown was my favorite, my absolute idol. Every time I played with him was like a music lesson, and I never thought I could be so funky! I mean, a white boy from Canada – a Jew – getting down with his funky bad self!
Paul Shaffer
Like brown rice, black rice is unmilled, and it is the dark outer husk that makes it so nutty and chewy. It’s also why it takes longer to cook than many other rices.
Yotam Ottolenghi
The Weird Sisters is a chronicle of real women, because it tells the truths of sisters. Eleanor Brown has written a compelling novel about love, despair and birth order—the themes the Bard himself had claimed and burnished.
Min Jin Lee
He’s helped me do so much in my career, helped me be the player that I am. If there’s no Larry Brown, then there’s no MVP, Allen Iverson.
Allen Iverson
In Providence, we didn’t have a first-run movie theater. But we did have an indie movie theatre on the Brown campus. That was the theater we’d go to. I think, as highbrow as it sounds, that I grew up on the films.
Susanna Fogel
Black, white, yellow, brown – we wanted somebody who would do right by us. And I think because Obama was that person, whether he was black or white, he was chosen
Will Ferrell
I’m a perfectly good carrot that everyone is trying to turn into a rose. As a carrot, I have good color and a nice leafy top. When I’m carved into a rose, I turn brown and wither.
Mary Pipher
You say ‘African music’ and you think ‘tribal drumming.’ But there’s a lot of African music that’s like James Brown, and a lot, too, that sounds very Hispanic.
Damian Marley
I was a semiotics major at Brown, and there’s this idea that stories are better, books are better, and movies are better if they cocked you off your axis and you were completely disoriented and you’d really have to rethink everything. Nobody has that experience, actually.
Ira Glass
The worry in Labour circles is that, when pressed, Gordon Brown instinctively moved to cut the benefits of the poor rather than upset businesses and the wealthy.
John McDonnell
My father, Leo Henry Brown, really was talented – he could write. He had a gift, and he had a great, sly humor.
Angie Dickinson
I used to enjoy all the white bands when I was a kid listening to the radio. But the record companies, they take music and label it – like, they say “rock”. Because the white singers can’t sound like James Brown, they call him “soul”. They’ve been doing that for years. That’s the prejudice crap.
Miles Davis
A Vampire!” I stammered. Then I noticed her legs. Below the cheerleader skirt, her left leg was brown and shaggy with a donkey’s hoof. Her right leg was shaped like a human leg was it was made of bronze. “Uhh, a vampire with-” “Don’t mention the legs!” Tammi snapped. “It’s rude to make fun.
Rick Riordan
I’m not James Brown. I’m not Sam Cooke. I’m Charley Pride. I’m just me and that’s what you got.
Charley Pride
The harsh truth is, most red-haired men look like blondes who’ve spoiled from lack of refrigeration. They look like brown-haired men who’ve been composted out behind the barn. Yet that same pigmentation that on a man can resemble leaf mold or junkyard rust, a woman wears like a tiara of rubies.
Tom Robbins
If some of our teenage thrill seekers really want to go out and get a thrill, let them go up into the Northwest and tangle with the Grizzly Bear, the Polar Bear, and the Brown Bear. They will get their kicks, and it will cleanse their souls.
Fred Bear
When I think of influential females in hip-hop, my mind goes to Foxy Brown, hands down.
Action Bronson
I love a good lyricist – always have. The thing that inspired me most was the different performers, like Tina Turner, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Madonna, even Janet Jackson.
Jennifer Lopez
Uh, homes, we are what we are. Black, white, Brown, yellow. Point is don’t be ashamed of who you are, man. You wanna call it sterotyping. Hey, This is me, Г“rale vato, this is who I am. Take me or leave me. You don’t like me? Turn around and look the other way. Its that simple.
Eddie Guerrero
Just wait and see, Charlie Brown. I’ll see the Great Pumpkin. I’ll SEE the Great Pumpkin! Just you wait, Charlie Brown. The Great Pumpkin will appear and I’ll be waiting for him.
Charles M. Schulz
I don’t tend to read much comedy, but there’s a fake advertisement section at the end of Derren Brown’s book ‘Pure Effect’ which always makes me cry with laughter every time I come across it.
Nick Mohammed
Urs Fischer specializes in making jaws drop. Cutting giant holes in gallery walls, digging a crater in Gavin Brown’s gallery floor in 2007, creating amazing hyperrealist wallpaper for a group show at Tony Shafrazi: It all percolates with uncanny destructiveness, operatic uncontrollability, and barbaric sculptural power.
Jerry Saltz
James Brown’s music still sounds as fresh and as good and as new as it did when he first created it.
James McBride
Personally, I have detested Gordon Brown since the moment in 2001 when he tried to make cheap capital out of the Laura Spence affair; as his troubles have piled up, I have felt no sympathy for him at all.
Justin Cartwright
I had never taken acting at Brown to be the beginnings of a career. I always did it just for fun.
John Krasinski
It’s like James Brown used to say… I don’t know, but whatever I play it’s got to be funky.
Curtis Jones
People really need to show up early to hear Hollis Brown. They are just an unbelievable live band.
Adam Duritz
The Green New Deal for Public Schools represents the level of school infrastructure investment that is urgent and necessary to heal the harm from decades of disinvestment, redlining and cycles of poverty and trauma, particularly for Black and brown children.
Jamaal Bowman
It looked like the world was covered in a cobbler crust of brown sugar and cinnamon.
Sarah Addison Allen
Some good souls found The Candidate cynical. I wonder what they’ll think when they read this portrait of the real-life Jerry Brown… This is the book that could force the little fox into the open.
Jeremy Larner
Those who peacefully gather to express sympathy for the family of Michael Brown must have their rights respected at all times. And journalists must not be harassed or prevented from covering a story that needs to be told.
Eric Holder
I come from an era of black pride, black power, my father riding around listening to James Brown singing, ‘Say it loud: I’m black and I’m proud,’ and people walking around with African medallions and Malcolm X hats.
Charlamagne tha God
When I was a kid I used to look at Wes Brown. I loved him as a player.
Micah Richards
Irene Bennett Brown keeps the promise of her gifted writing and love for history inside this fine contemporary mystery. I loved it.
Jane Kirkpatrick
Black culture – we dance and sing. We’re entertainers. James Brown said it best: the things we are make people want to be like us.
Mark Henry
Married life had taught Toran the futility of arguing with a female in a dark-brown mood.
Isaac Asimov
I’m definitely inspired by Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, James Brown, Lauryn Hill.
Snoh Aalegra
My top three were Jim Brown, Wilt Chamberlain and Bo Jackson.
Dick Schaap
Billions of taxpayers’ money has been wasted in bad deals. The London Underground modernisation, personally negotiated by one of Gordon Brown’s team, was a disaster, as the National Audit Office has confirmed.
Vince Cable
People like to compartmentalise music, especially African-American music, but it’s really one thing. One very wide thing. I mean, it’s like all those great records by Marvin Gaye and James Brown back in the day – there are tonnes of jazz musicians playing on them.
Kamasi Washington
My dad took me to see James Brown live, and that’s so cool, cause I don’t think many people my age can say they saw James Brown. I’m pretty proud of that. That’s the thing about me that no one really knows. I had to have been 6 or 7, but I remember it vividly.
Maika Monroe
Antonio Brown is, if not the best receiver in the league, one of the best.
Bill Cowher
This is the thing about hip-hop music and where people get it most misconstrued: It’s all hip-hop. You can’t say that just what I do is hip-hop, because hip-hop is all energies. James Brown can get on the track and mumble all day. But guess what? You felt his soul on those records.
Kendrick Lamar
My dad was a singer. Old classic stuff like ‘Brown Eyed Girl,’ or ‘Delilah’ if he was getting really dramatic. And there was always a gig. All the men would go out and play, congregate back at our house, and I would be up with them wailing into the wee hours.
Nadine Coyle
I fully support U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in his Global Education First Initiative and the work of U.N. Special Envoy for Global Education Gordon Brown and the respectful president of the U.N. General Assembly Vuk Jeremic. I thank them for the leadership they continue to give.
Malala Yousafzai
If I were making paintings of a bowl of fruit it would still be viewed through some sort of political lens, because the viewer wants to create a type of narrative around the political theme when they look at work depicting black and brown models.
Kehinde Wiley
I did ‘How to Succeed in Business… ,’ ‘Kiss Me Kate,’ ‘Godspell,’ and ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown’ in high school, all of which were fun.
Jonathan Groff
I like smart rappers who aren’t necessarily trying to be deeper than you, like Danny Brown.
I had a bunch of different hair colors. I was experimenting to see what I liked. It started off brown, then I did red, then I got really, really blonde!
Leighton Meester
If we can have drones, we can have brown people on TV, and the world won’t end! We need to catch up. We are painfully behind.
Gabrielle Union
What it meant for me to win the Emmy is I found it. It’s not just the award. It’s what it’s going to mean to young girls – young brown girls, especially. When they saw a physical manifestation of a dream, I felt like I had fulfilled a purpose.
Viola Davis
At the window he sits and looks out, musing on the river, a little brown hen duck paddling upstream among the windwaves close to the far bank. What he has understood lies behind him like a road in the woods. He is a wilderness looking out at the wild.
Wendell Berry
Oh! don’t you remember sweet Alice, Ben Bolt, Sweet Alice, whose hair was so brown, Who wept with delight when you gave her a smile, And trembled with fear at your frown?
Thomas Dunn English
No human being should ever have to fear for his own life because of political or religious beliefs. We are all in this together, my friends, the rich, the poor, the red, white, black, brown and yellow. We share responsibility for Mother Earth and those who live and breathe upon her ..never forget that.
Leonard Peltier
It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve played ‘Brown Sugar’, I never get tired of playing it.
Bobby Keys
There’s people saying that ‘Jackie Brown’ was a blaxploitation movie, when there’s nothing at all blaxploitation about it other than Pam Grier being in it.
Michael Jai White
I was playing surf music with my band when a girlfriend of mine who had come from Los Angeles took me to a James Brown concert. That show really changed my whole outlook and thought processes, especially about music and different cultures.
Timothy B. Schmit
IsnВ’t it strange some people make You feel so tired inside, Your thoughts begin to shrivel up Like leaves all brown and dried!But when youВ’re with some other ones ItВ’s stranger still to find Your thought as thick as fireflies All shiny in your mind!
Rachel Field
Whenever you brown butter, some of it is lost – water evaporates, milk solids fall to the bottom of the pan, that kind of thing. It’s possible that in browning the butter you ended up making the dough with too little butter.
Dorie Greenspan
She realized all at once that Doon, thin, dark eyed Doon, with his troublesome temper and his terrible brown jacket, and his good heart—- was the person she knew better than anyone now. He was her best friend. –City of Ember–
Jeanne DuPrau
Hold on to your divine blush, your innate rosy magic, or end up brown. Once you’re brown, you’ll find out you’re blue. As blue as indigo. And you know what that means. Indigo. Indigoing. Indigone.
Tom Robbins
Mr Bush, Mr. Blair and now Mr Brown’s sense of human rights precludes our people’s right to their God-given resources, which in their view must be controlled by their kith and kin. I am termed dictator because I have rejected this supremacist view and frustrated the neo-colonialists.
Robert Mugabe
Holy Joy were a cult ’80s band led by the wonderful songwriting genius that is Johny Brown.
Irvine Welsh
I think the best thing about being James Brown is looking at my little son. Hopefully I can make my son a role model to a lot of people.
James Brown
I have to exfoliate my lips as they’re quite a large surface area and sometimes when I wear lipstick, it goes all cakey. So I mix brown sugar with lip balm and just scrub it onto them.
Georgia May Jagger
One modest suggestion for my friends in the academic community: the next time a mob of students, waving their non-negotiable demands, starts pitching bricks and rocks at the student union- just imagine they are wearing brown shirts or white sheets- and act accordingly.
Spiro T. Agnew
Since the Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954, Movement Conservatives have tapped into the idea that an activist government redistributed wealth to lazy minorities. But they have also pushed hard on the idea that true Americans are Western individualists.
Heather Cox Richardson
More Republicans should champion the implementation of body-worn cameras on police officers, requested by Michael Brown’s family and supported by Republican law enforcement proponent Rudy Giuliani.
Margaret Hoover
His eyes were cold and brown – like coffee stains.
Markus Zusak
Ultimately we’re all moving towards a time when the races will be more and more mixed and we will all be brown to some extent.
Rick Famuyiwa
Every year, my family and I would go visit my mom’s family in Texas. We would drive from Chicago to Texas, and once we started to get towards San Antonio, everyone looked like me! It was such a great feeling. Everyone had the same brown skin that I did.
Marisol Nichols
Did you ever get the feeling that the world is a tuxedo and you’re a pair of brown shoes?
George Gobel
[T]he most viciously intolerant campus I ever visited as a lecturer was Brown, where the humanities program has been gutted by a jejune brand of feminist theory and cultural and media studies.
Camille Paglia
Those small brown men who sell their sisters on the streets of Cairo were once the mighty Egyptians.
L. Ron Hubbard
The abolitionists were not like the rugged people out West, and they were not like John Brown, either. They were people who made speeches and did politics.
James McBride
Brown bread and the Gospel is good fare.
Matthew Henry
In Ferguson, there are witnesses who say Brown had his hands up when he was shot. That should be enough probable cause to go to trial to then determine if Officer Wilson is guilty or not. It is at trial that he can then defend himself and his attorneys can present their own witnesses and their own defense.
Al Sharpton
I’ve been sampled at least 71 times. Me, James Brown and George Clinton, we’re the ones who’ve been sampled the most.
Rudy Ray Moore
If humanity can exist for another million years, everybody’s going to be a light shade of yellow-brown-red-tan.
Joe Mantegna
If I’m fortunate enough to become a Cleveland Brown, you can expect everything from me.
Josh Allen
You turn ‘Insecure’ on, and you see a sea of brown. You see at the core of it a strong friendship between two brown-skinned girls.
Yvonne Orji
I owe a large part of my success to Joe Brown, who helped me both as a player and a person.
Willie Stargell
In America in general… I know there are a lot of parts where may be it is not that great to be brown or black.
Karan Soni
James Brown is important because he decorates the clock correctly and he’s good with lower mathematics. Don’t get me wrong – he’s good.
Don Van Vliet
Whether manufactured by black, white, brown or yellow hands, a widget remains a widget – and it will be bought anywhere if the price and quality are right. The market is a more powerful and more reliable liberating force than government can ever be.
Margaret Thatcher
I’d like to see my grandchildren climb trees, not stand under them. I’d like to see them learn to make bread and brown it over a fire using my toasting fork.
Laurie Graham
Constant deprivation is no way to live. Don’t always skip the delicious stuff for raw carrots and brown rice.
Gunnar Peterson
I’m putting my place in the universe into perspective.
I’m stardust.
I’m golden brown.
I’m just one small bit in a vast expanse.
Holly Goldberg Sloan
One of my favourite scents in the world is the ‘Brown’ candle from Hotel Costes in Paris. It smells like naughty nights in corners of clubs.
Poppy Delevingne
‘Harry Brown’ is good – and I love ‘The Italian Job.’
Harry Kane
I worship makeup. The basics are always: Stila shadows, LeClerc powder for my crazy shiny skin, Bobbie brown liner pot, Chanel mascara, and Koh Gen Do for foundation, Nars for colors and sparkles.
Mindy Kaling
So one day, in a fit of trying to do something different, I just dyed my hair dark brown and got my first role a week later, after which I thought: ‘People are closed-minded, man! Like a different hair colour changes everything!’
Emma Stone
People have really taken Mrs. Brown to their hearts. I think she reminds them of their own mammies… Fierce and scary but full of love.
Brendan O’Carroll
Maybe there would be a Tinker city someday, too. They would buy up all of the colored dye, and everyone else in the world would ave to wear brown.’ -Mat
Robert Jordan
Whenever someone like a plumber or a mechanic tries to explain something technical to me, I listen for about three seconds before it all just becomes white noise, like Charlie Brown’s teacher.
John Niven
Man, Coach Brown, he’s so relaxed. We’ve seen that guy dancing this week at practice and he’s dancing in the locker room. It brings tears to guys’ eyes and brings happiness to everybody.
Vince Young
Staring into the mirror, I was surprised to see a haunted look in my brown eyes. There was pain there, pain and loss that even the nicest dress and makeup couldn’t hide.
Richelle Mead
The goldenrod is yellow, The corn is turning brown, The trees in apple orchards With fruit are bending down.
Helen Hunt Jackson
While I understand the passions and the anger that arise over the death of Michael Brown, giving into that anger by looting or carrying guns, and even attacking the police, only serves to raise tensions and stir chaos.
Barack Obama
Homosexuality gave us Adolph Hitler, and homosexuals in the military gave us the Brown Shirts, the Nazi war machine and six million dead Jews.
Bryan Fischer
The brown monkey’s instinct to kill is correct; such men are dangerous to all monkey customs.
Robert A. Heinlein
I enjoy eating fresh fruits, salads, lean protein, leafy vegetables, brown rice/brown bread and eggless cakes.
Sherlyn Chopra
At one point, I bought brown contacts because people told me I wasn’t Latin enough to play Latin, and I’m Puerto Rican. I went and bought brown contacts just so I could go in and look more Latino… but that was something that I’ve dealt with in this business.
Josh Segarra
I guess I showed certain signs of being a workaholic in early years; I had a magazine route very early on – I must have been about seven or eight years old or something like that – when I was carrying Liberty magazine, trying to win green and brown coupons; I eventually [won] a pony.
Walter Cronkite
I’m not prepared for Rue’s family. Her parents, whose faces are still fresh with sorrow. Her fiver younger siblings, who resemble her so closely. The slight builds, the luminous brown eyes. They form a flock of small dark birds.
Suzanne Collins
And there I was, pretty as heck, brown eyes, a few freckles, fashion challenged, and a bad attitude. Max II.
James Patterson
I’m meeting people I never would have met at Brown and doing things I couldn’t do because of basketball.
Tucker Halpern
It’s okay, it’s cool to be Indian and there are cool people that are Indian and doing really well. It’s okay to be brown and cool.
Vidya Vox
I played volleyball for Brown University and loved playing there. I played all four years and was captain my senior year. Second team all-Ivy, academic all-Ivy. I really loved it. When I was graduated, I figured that was it.
Lauren Gibbs
SHADOW KNIGHT’S MATE is a compelling story, extremely well-written and alarmingly plausible.В  Jay Brandon does for politics what Dan Brown did for religion.
Sharyn McCrumb
I may be brown on the outside, but on the inside, I’m all American.
Rachel Campos-Duffy
I’ve been president of Brown and chancellor of Vanderbilt, where they have very high completion rates.
Gordon Gee
Eric followed Vlad Tepes’s stubby finger, identifying me as the future Happy Meal. Then he stared at Dracula, looking up from his kneeling position. I couldn’t read his face at all, and I felt a stirring of fear. What would Charlie Brown have done if the Great Pumpkin wanted to eat the little red-haired girl?
Charlaine Harris
It bothered me in a kind of Charles Manson way to have a brown smear of blood on my wall but I also liked it because every time I looked at it I was reminded that I was, at that very moment, not bleeding from my face. And those are powerful words of hope, really.
Miriam Toews
And there’s been occasions where I’ve gone brown and got parts! I’m not above doing that! I hope after this, I can get a role where it won’t be: “Oh, you can’t play any role other than a blonde.” I’m proud of being a blonde. I’d be proud of being a brunette or a red-head. I don’t think it matters.
Laura Bell Bundy
It’s no surprise that at the same time that American universities have engaged in a serious commitment to diversity, they have been thought-prisons. We are not talking about diversity in any real way. We are talking about brown, black, white versions of the same political ideology.
Richard Rodriguez
I stream this radio station, Radio Nova, that’s based in Paris. They curate a beautiful set that’s really all over the place – they’ll play blues or some West African music, then A Tribe Called Quest, then funk from Ethiopia, then James Brown, and then the Beatles. It’s an amazing mix.
Zoe Kravitz
Our flag is read, white and blue, but our nation is a rainbown-red, yellow, brown, black and white – and we’re all precious in God’s sight.
Jesse Jackson
I love dressing up. As kids, my friends and I would dress up as the Spice Girls – Posh Spice was my favourite because I had short brown hair like her.
Eliza Doolittle
Recognize joy when it arrives in the plain brown wrappings of everyday life.
Judith Viorst
My father was short for a man, with a child’s plaything for a name – Spinner. He had flawless dark brown skin and a head full of big, wet-looking curls, black as oil. And he had the smile of a scoundrel – the kind of smile that disarmed men and undressed women.
Charles M. Blow
Everybody knew James Brown. Every musician dreamed of being in his band.
James McBride
We have been shaken by the deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, and Tamir Rice – shaken, but not sufficiently unsettled. We must contextualize those losses, force our neighbors to become so deeply disturbed by what has occurred that they, too, are inspired to act to change the system.
Ilyasah Shabazz
Vodka is a wonderful drink. You can drink so much of it without being as hung over as you would if you were drinking one of the brown liquors – the whiskeys and such. It’s a great drink to go with appetizers.
Gary Shteyngart
As he drank, little brown drops of coffee clung to his mustache like dew. Men will live like billy goats if they are let alone.
Charles Portis
I’m no dancer. I got rhythm, I can dance if I need to but I’m not Chris Brown. He’s an amazing dancer. If I’m not going to be amazing at it, I’m not gon’ do it. I’m gonna do what works for me and you’re going to feel it ’cause it’s me.
Trey Songz
I did do a local musical, ‘Bubblin’ Brown Sugar.’ I played the young Sweet Georgia Brown. I was 13 years old. After that, I just decided that I had to pick one thing, acting or singing, and concentrate on that.
CeCe Peniston
On the plus side, if he ever had to fight through a roomful of adolescent girls, he only needed to blink (his velvet brown eyes framed in embarassingly long lashes) a few times, and they would all faint.
Ilona Andrews
Amid all the easily loved darlings of Charlie Brown’s circle, obstreperous Lucy holds a special place in my heart. She fusses and fumes and she carps and complains. That’s because Lucy cares. And it’s the caring that counts.
Judith Crist
Growing up in Augusta in such a protected and loving community is something that I really enjoy talking about. I love talking about – even though I grew up, of course, in the time of segregated schools: Brown vs. Board of Education came along after I was already in first grade.
Jessye Norman
O’er hill and field October’s glories fade;
O’er hill and field the blackbirds southward fly;
The brown leaves rustle down the forest glade,
Where naked branches make a fitful shade,
And the lost blooms of Autumn withered lie.
George Arnold
Linus: What would you say you want most out of life, Charlie Brown? To be happy? CB: Oh, no. I don’t expect that. I really don’t. I just don’t want to be unhappy!
Charles M. Schulz
My family has always had Cape Verdean pride but I don’t think it was something the kids in the family necessarily understood. However, I was very conscious of the fact that both sides of my family were drastically different and my aunts, cousins, and uncles varied in different shades of brown.
Aeriel Miranda
And there my little doves did sit With feathers softly brown And glittering eyes that showed their right To general Nature’s deep delight.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
I was shooting 45 times a game. What was I supposed to do? Pass it into Chris Mihm & Kwame Brown?
Kobe Bryant
I commend Chris Brown and Soulja Boy for going out there for so many years and entertaining the people.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Wendy warmed my heart, earned my trust, touched my soul, and then touched me in a lot of other places. And right after we’d slept together for the very first time she looked up at me with her chocolate-brown, trustworthy doe eyes and said, “I’ve got herpes. I thought you should know.
Caprice Crane
I got brown sandwiches and green sandwiches. Its either very new cheese or very old meat. – Oscar Madison, from The Odd Couple
Neil Simon
When I left my grandmother’s home in 1986 headed to Savannah State with two brown grocery bags filled with my belongings, nothing was going to keep me from realizing my dreams.
Shannon Sharpe
Like Noel Brown and Scotty, they recorded as the Chosen Few, and I recorded as Dennis Brown then.
Dennis Brown
We all make mistakes. Luckily for us, there are very few mistakes that cant be solved with a suitable application of either lipstick or hand grenades” – Frances Brown
Mira Grant
When I started playing, I played in R&B bands. I played James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding and all that.
Neil Peart
Is Adrian here?” “Who?” “Adrian. Tall. Brown hair. Green eyes.” She frowned. “Do you mean Jet?” “I … I’m not sure. Does he smoke like a chimney?” The girl nodded sagely. “Yup. You must mean Jet.
Richelle Mead
In 2001 we didn’t have all the talent in the world, we just had me on offense and just a bunch of tough ass dudes, and a great coach in Larry Brown.
Allen Iverson
Our immediate influence in b-boying was James Brown, point blank.
Crazy Legs
I really didn’t want to rap; I was just a regular kid. My friend – his name is William Aston – we went to the same high school together, and he was rapping. He put out a freestyle over Chris Brown’s ‘Look at Me Now,’ and it was fire, and the whole school went crazy.
Lil Uzi Vert
I made the record, and I sent it over to Jay Brown, who was working on Rihanna’s album. He was like, “Send me that record for Rihanna.”
Bryce Wilson
He exhaled loudly and raked a hand through the sable brown hair he always kept stylishly messy. “Look, Rose. You don’t have to keep up with the hard-to-get thing. You’ve already got me.
Richelle Mead
I just felt like I was mining Dan Brown’s work.
Ashley Zukerman
I love Ruth Brown, not just her singing, but Ruth Brown has more girl power than anyone, because she fought hard against people who ripped her off and then helped other artists through the Rhythm and Blues Foundation.
Ronnie Spector
It was probably when I met Jeff Hamilton, the drummer I’ve been working with for the last 20 years. He’s the one who brought Ray Brown to hear me sing at a restaurant in my hometown.
Diana Krall
I love James Brown, and as a baby, I was always dancing to James Brown.
Maika Monroe
Everything’s stolen. Everything precious – be it a kiss, or be it James Brown – gets misappropriated to the aid of the advertising executives. So, an act of reclamation, somewhere else to be: that’s what I want my music to be. Somewhere you can step into. A place.
David Gray
To date, [Wynton] Marsalis has received a total of nine Grammy Awards; a Pulitzer Prize (the first ever awarded to a jazz musician)… and twenty-nine honorary degrees, including Columbia, Brown, Princeton and Yale; the National Medal of Arts; and numerous awards from other countries.
Randy Sandke
The people-pleasing and performing is 100% ingrained in me, partly because I was a little brown girl growing up in a very white, homogeneous community in San Diego – where, in second grade, I was called a terrorist.
Samin Nosrat
I’m not a big chicken or meat eater, but sometimes I’ll eat it if it’s locally raised. The family dinner will be stir-fry, or we’ll roll our own sushi with brown rice, spinach, salmon, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and seaweed. The kids love it!
Alysia Reiner
Michael Brown’s tragic death has revealed a deep distrust between some in the Ferguson community and its police force. It also developed a need to develop and widely disseminate law enforcement best practices for responding to public demonstrations.
Eric Holder
Charles and I are from Augusta, Ga. – so we come from James Brown territory, soul music and Motown. And Charles has always had a lot of Southern rock in there as well.
Dave Haywood
I remember as a young man seeing these bigger-than-life, strong images of black manhood in the form of Jim Brown and Fred Williamson, Jim Kelly, Billy Dee Williams. All these guys were these alpha males who were smart, attractive. I said, ‘Wow, I want to be like that.’
Michael Jai White
I’m black, so, you know, I’m again with black folk, but it’s a love that spills over to vanilla suburbs and red reservations and brown barrios and yellow slices.
Cornel West
Perm in your hair or even a curly weave,
Wichya New Edition Bobby Brown button on your sleeve.
I tell you come here, you say, ‘Meet me half way,’
Cause brothers been popping that game all day.
LL Cool J
In the Duat, Anubis looked as he always had, with his tousled dark hair and lovely brown eyes, but I’d never seen him filled with such rage. I realized that anyone who dared to hurt me would suffer his full wrath, and Walt wasn’t going to hold him back.
Rick Riordan
Nearly all edible seaweeds – or ‘sea vegetables,’ as they ought technically to be called – belong to one of three broad groups: green, red and brown algae.
Yotam Ottolenghi
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road. Healthy, free, the world before me. The long brown path before me leading me wherever I choose. Henceforth, I ask not good fortune, I myself am good fortune. Henceforth, I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing.
Walt Whitman
My fatal flaw is hubris. The brown stuff they spread on veggie sandwiches? No, seaweed brain. That’s hummus. Hubris is worse. What could be worse than hummus?
Rick Riordan
Michael Brown happened to be black. Trayvon Martin happened to be black. Eric Garner was a black man. So this pattern continues over and over.
William Lacy Clay, Jr.
Most people understand that Lehman Brothers didn’t collapse because Gordon Brown built too many schools and hospitals.
Douglas Alexander
I love Stuart Scott. There are a lot of people that tore down barriers that we don’t really acknowledge sometimes. He was one. I think James Brown was too. That cat was a soul brother when it wasn’t very popular to be one.
Sir Mix-a-Lot
You go through the Civil Rights struggle, everybody knew the songs – ‘We shall overcome.’ Everybody would sing it. Music helped us. James Brown, ‘Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud.’ They helped black people figure out how to navigate what was a very treacherous place in America for them.
Geoffrey Canada
I think that brown people are attracted to rock music because it speaks on the spectrum of pain that brown people are predisposed to.
Princess Nokia
The best lip product in the world is something I’m scared is out of production. It’s YSL’s Kiss-and-Blush in this really muted pinky brown.
Camille Rowe
Californians are blessed with the remarkable leadership of Gov. Jerry Brown, who… has led our state to firm fiscal footing and brought us to the enviable position of dreaming – and achieving – big dreams again.
Gavin Newsom
Lucy: Our teacher wants us to write an essay on praying. Charlie Brown: Praying is important when you wake up at two o’clock in the morning feeling sick from eating something dumb the day before. Lucy: I’ll just say we were out of town and I didn’t have time to write anything.
Charles M. Schulz
Life is like a game, Charlie Brown… Sometimes you win… Sometimes you lose.” “I’ll be happy if I just make the playoffs.
Charles M. Schulz
She’s as fetching as brown hair done up with ribbons blue The mountain, my lady She’s as sweet as pink flowers made bright with morning dew, Mount Eskel, my lady
Shannon Hale
My association with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference is sort of predated by an effort that we were a part of here in New York City regarding the reaction to this 1954 Supreme Court [Brown v Board of Education] decision.
Ella Baker
I love Derrick Brown for the surprise of one word waking up next to another.В  One moment tender, funny or romantic, the next,В  visceral, ironic and relevatory-here is the full chaos of life. An amazing talent.
Janet Fitch
Lives of great men all remind us, Greatness takes no easy way, All the heroes of tomorrow, Are the heretics of today. Socrates and Galileo, John Brown, Thoreau, Christ, and Debs, Heard the night cry “Down with traitors!” And the dawn shout “Up the rebs!”
Yip Harburg
I met Paul Brown, and I will never forget it.
John Dorsey
Ultimately, my goal is to inspire little brown girls that look like me, that are sitting on the porch wearing cornrows.
Nafessa Williams
The hard part about writing about a guy like John Brown is that he was so serious, and his cause was so serious, that most of what’s been written about him is really serious and, in my opinion, a little bit boring.
James McBride
Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones it will always stay blue; whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened; red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white is no longer red, but another color – pink.
Raoul Dufy
Many people see my early work simply as portraits of black and brown people. Really, it’s an investigation of how we see those people and how they have been perceived over time.
Kehinde Wiley
First and foremost, I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Michael Brown. As I have said in the past, I know that, regardless of the circumstances here, they lost a loved one to violence. I know the pain that accompanies such a loss knows no bounds.
Robert P. McCulloch
For example, you can eat a Caesar salad and say, “Wow, I ate so healthy today.” You forget there was a quarter-cup of oil in there, and all the calories are from fat. So it’s better if you eat a grilled chicken breast, some steamed brown rice, and a little salad with balsamic vinegar on top.
Wolfgang Puck
Part of our tradition as black women is that we are universalists. Black children, yellow children, red children, brown children, that is the black woman’s normal, day-to-day relationship. In my family alone, we are about four different colors.
Alice Walker
I’ve done work in every area of social justice you can think of, but I’ve been highly focused on young people and then specifically black and brown girls.
Tarana Burke
After winning Ascot’s Queen Alexandra Stakes on Brown Jack- If you’d been on your honeymoon, you couldn’t have had a happier time.
Steve Donoghue
As the game enters its glorious final weeks, the chill of fall signals the reality of defeat for all but one team. The fields of play will turn brown and harden, the snow will fall, but in the heart of the fan sprouts a sprig of green.
John Thorn
Beneath this slab John Brown is stowed. He watched the ads, And not the road.
Ogden Nash
I don’t think I’ve ever sent a text to Gordon Brown because I’m confident that he would absolutely have no idea how to receive it. He barely managed to master WordPerfect 4.1.
Ed Balls
Herman Brown was a businessman who wanted value for money spent. His relationships with politicians were measured by that criterion.
Robert Caro
Do you think George Bush actually knows who Gordon Brown is? He probably just thinks Tony Blair’s put on weight and had a mild stroke.
Frankie Boyle
When I die, I want to be buried in a long long-sleeve black Ralph Lauren dress and brown chunky boots. I want my hair styled like his models, long hair that flows. I also want natural makeup with a light pink lip.
Nadine Velazquez
I’m really Americanized. The only real Latina thing I do is cook rice and beans with chuletas and tostones. I do the healthier version of what my grandmother would have made: a lot less salt, a lot less fat, a lot more vegetables. Sometimes I serve it with brown rice, which is, like, sacrilegious.
Andrea Navedo
Punch a black belt in the face, he becomes a brown belt. Punch him again, purple.
Carlson Gracie
It’s a warm wind, the west wind, full of birds’ cries; I never hear the west wind but tears are in my eyes. For it comes from the west lands, the old brown hills, And April’s in the West wind, and daffodils.
John Masefield
The cure for the Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and Eric Garner tragedies is not education or exposure. It’s the gospel.
Benjamin Watson
When I graduated from Brown, I had a very limited conception of jobs, careers, and what I wanted to do. Basically, I figured I should do some kind of thought work that paid well, but I wasn’t sure what.
Andrew Yang
I did not feel beautiful. I didn’t know anyone who looked like me. I remember asking my mum to wash the brown off me in the bath.
Vick Hope
I always felt before Paul Brown, coaches just rolled the ball out onto the field.
Sid Gillman
Many of our problems are home-grown. Gordon Brown regularly advised the rest of the world to follow his British model of growth. But the model was flawed. It led to the highest level of household debt in relation to income in the world.
Vince Cable
The heart, when it is too much alive, aches for that brown earth, and ecstasy has no fear of death.
Willa Cather
People will find transformation and transcendence in a McDonald’s hash brown if it’s all they’ve got.
Patton Oswalt
When I first played New York, it was with James Brown at the Apollo, and I was playing in a band under the name The Valentinos. I remember Sam Cooke saying, ‘I want you to go in there with James Brown. I couldn’t be as hard on you as James Brown would be.’ But we came out marching like soldiers.
Bobby Womack
I’m really interested in modern history, but to fulfill a History degree at Brown you have to do modern and pre-modern.
Emma Watson
God is not merely interestd in the freedom of brown men, yellow men, red men and black men.He is interested in the freedom of the whole human race.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
In tech-land, no one cares what kind of car you drive, and frankly, they’re not going to find out anyway. You’re not going to go to lunch together, because you’re going to be sitting in your cube with a brown bag eating lunch.
Roy Price
Why should anyone think a white skin superior in evaluating the qualities of human life? I did not really admire a white skin so much myself. Did I not prefer the brown skin that came with exposure to the sun?
Charles Lindbergh
I look at old performers like James Brown: back in the day when you actually had to work hard to get poppin’. I look at all those types of performers. Even like Kid n’ Play and the Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff and Salt-N-Pepa. That era where they had to perform. You couldn’t just rap. It had to be an entire performance.
I was born in Newton, MA. Graduated from Brown University in 2001 with honors in English as a playwright. I attended the National Theater Institute at the Eugene O’Neill Center in Waterford, CT just after Brown. I moved to NYC in 2002 and was a professional… waiter, for 3 years.
John Krasinski
Every year, my family and I would go visit my moms family in Texas. We would drive from Chicago to Texas, and once we started to get towards San Antonio, everyone looked like me! It was such a great feeling. Everyone had the same brown skin that I did.
Marisol Nichols
When I was a kid in Ireland, there were not very many black people. I was very much like the strange brown thing, intriguing and cute. I didn’t experience racism there. The first time I did was in London. It was that moment that you realize you’re black. A kind of lifting of the veil.
Ruth Negga
All our other faculties seem to have the brown touch of earth upon them, but the imagination carries the very livery of heaven, and is God’s self in the soul.
Henry Ward Beecher
I have a little brown cocoon of an idea that may possibly expand into a magnificent moth of fulfilment.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
If a man dreams that he has committed a sin before which the sun hid his face, it is often safe to conjecture that, in sheer forgetfulness, he wore a red tie, or brown boots with evening dress.
Arthur Machen
On our way to the Super Bowl XV Championship, the Oakland Raiders played a frigid 1981 AFC playoff game in Cleveland, in which the temperatures plunged to -35 degrees. I remember looking up in the stands to see a dedicated Cleveland Brown fan celebrating topless.
Burgess Owens
The amount of love I get from India, from Pakistan, from Asia, from Persia, Malaysia – people are just like, ‘Brown boy doing it, brown boy doing it!’

I think one of the most important American films is “Jackie Brown”, which is such a humble depiction of humble characters but so powerful. The film was pure depiction of the American poverty of the 90s.
Arnaud Desplechin
There was never a time you could get the majority of people in Alabama or Mississippi, or even southern Delaware, to vote to end segregation. What changed things was the rule of law, the courts. Brown v. Board of Education was ushered in by a movement, but it was a legal decision.
Bryan Stevenson
James Brown hated me until the day he died.
Eric B.
Chicago always hit me as such a gloomy place – I just remember all the snow getting dirty as soon as it would fall, all the decaying brown brick buildings around where we lived, all this soot all over the place.
Terry Zwigoff
The murder of Sean Brown hurt my soul.
Seamus Heaney
In 1975 I met Alison Brown and in 1982 we were married. She works for Cornell Computer Services.
Kenneth G. Wilson
Black and brown pride have been taught in my household for a long time.
Kendrick Lamar
Things I am allergic to: people who believe in star signs and think nothing of starting a conversation with: ‘Hi, my name’s Lucy. I’m a Sagittarius;’ rodents (apart from miniature hamsters, which are not in fact rodents but small, breathing, brown balls of cotton wool); and people who go to the gym.
Claudia Winkleman
As for the European far left, it has very little to do with Marxism-Leninism these days. It has more to do with anti-Semitism, racism, anti-migration. They claim to be left-wing but they’re espousing positions which would actually be classically brown.
Toomas Hendrik Ilves
I think I’m right-brained, incapable of managing my way out of a brown paper bag.
Jeremy Grantham
You can’t predict the number of years it will take for someone to find themselves, to mature into their own voice. When I got to be 30, I was finally writing like Danny Brown.
Danny Brown
I think one of the most important American films is ‘Jackie Brown,’ which is such a humble depiction of humble characters but so powerful. The film was pure depiction of the American poverty of the ’90s.
Arnaud Desplechin
The attack of John Brown upon Harper’s Ferry came upon Virginia like a clap of thunder out of a clear sky.
John Sergeant Wise
Sadly, whites are rarely open to what black and brown folks have to say regarding their ongoing experiences with racist mistreatment. And we are especially reluctant to discuss what that mistreatment means for us as whites: namely that we end up with more and better opportunities as the flipside of discrimination.
Tim Wise
Europe has been a place of refuge. Why should it stop with black and brown bodies?
Kehinde Wiley
My mother, Betty, was an entertainer – she opened up for James Brown, Ike and Tina Turner – and I had an uncle who would work as a chef in a restaurant, 6-foot-3 or 6-foot-4. I was young, so he could have been shorter, but in my mind, that’s how tall he was.
Salim Akil
I guess I was a combination of House of Pain and Bobby Brown:
I was humpin’ around and jumpin’ around!
The Notorious B.I.G.
Anyone who can do the splits and come back up on the backbeat, as James Brown and Prince can, has my eternal respect. Prince, who is a genius of the highest order, can come back up while singing and playing the guitar.
Bill Nighy
Yellow looks good with a brown suit, but then, a brown suit never looks good.
Roger Stone
Off a cup of C.J. Gibson, man I’m faded off the brown and I’m easily influenced by the niggas I’m around
Scott Brown may be the last Republican to win a statewide fight in Massachusetts for a very long time. He caught the machine flat-footed in January 2010 when he out-hustled Martha Coakley and stole the Senate seat Ted Kennedy held all those years. And since then, the Democrats haven’t lost a single statewide fight.
Howie Carr
If not for the direct action of a John Brown and his comrades, America would still trade in the flesh of the black man.
Emma Goldman
To reduce repossessions caused by unemployment, Gordon Brown needs to look at cutting the rate of corporation tax for small companies to 20 per cent and the main rate to 25 per cent, while reducing the rate of employers’ national insurance by 1% for the smallest companies.
Grant Shapps
I think, between me and Chris Brown, if you combined our games, you’d get, like, a real Division I basketball player.
Lil Dicky
I ate some pretty funky, authentic Chinese food in Hong Kong. There was an egg from some bird that’s not a chicken. I can’t remember what it was, but it was green and brown and not very tasty.
John Legend
He was the tallest, thinnest, weariest boy I had ever seen in my life. He was brilliant. He had gorgeous brown eyes, and he had only two suits. He was completely unhappy, and I didn’t know why.
J. D. Salinger
I have a deep-down belief that there are folks in the world who are good through and through, and others who came in mean and will go out mean. It’s like coffee. Once it’s roasted, it all looks brown. Until you pour hot water on it and see what comes out. Folks get into hot water, you see what comes out.
Nancy E. Turner
When I talk about ‘working class,’ I don’t talk about ‘white working class,’. I talk about ‘working class,’ and a third of working class people are people of color. If you are black, white, brown, gay, straight, you want a good job. There is no more unifying theme than that.
Tim Ryan
Mr Brown is a politician of exceptional experience and ability, and I am sure he will discharge the office of Prime Minister with distinction
Bertie Ahern
I wanted everything. What could you not want when you are brown and Indian-looking in a society in which the white aesthetic is praised as acceptable?
Ana Castillo
There were thousands of brown books in leather bindings, some chained to the book-shelves and others propped against each other as if they had had too much to drink and did not really trust themselves. These gave out a smell of must and solid brownness which was most secure.
T. H. White
[Jesus Christ] used to have blue eyes but I painted them brown like mine and everybody’s, to make him normal.
NoViolet Bulawayo
When I was in my early 20s, I studied tae kwon do and hapkido. I earned brown belts in both of them.
Karen Bass
Learn to cook brown rice with a little salt and butter or olive oil. Learn to boil noodles properly or saute onions right. Once you get those basics down, you’ll be all good and feel more confident.
Damaris Phillips
[On John Brown:] The poor wretch is hanged, but from his grave a root of bitterness will spring, the fruit of which at no distant day may be disunion and civil war.
Fanny Kemble
So if you’re black or brown, you can make money in America, you can get rich in America… but whatever you decide to do, it better be positive, ’cause if one person is harmed, you will be destroyed. You see Oprah, she just be giving away money. She’s doing that to keep the Feds off her back.
Chris Rock
I know that James Brown recording where he sings about Chicago. I think he sings, like, ‘Chicago, my hometown!’ That’s what I think of when I think of Chicago. And I think of Chicago Bulls.
Michiel Huisman
The nationalism I seek is one that decolonizes the brown and female body as it decolonizes the brown and female earth
Cherrie Moraga
My field-mouse had made a set of brand-new tracks; here and there they etched themselves, following the brown flowers. It seemed as if uncommon spirits had seized their little maker, for sometimes he had leaped a yard, the festive mite! There was no other track pursuing; the leaps must have been mere joy.
Anne Bosworth Greene
New Brown America represents a whole generation of kids that are descendants of either immigrants or immigrants themselves, that are coming to America, enriching what it means to be an American.
Hasan Minhaj
I liked the people at Brown, while I really disliked most of the fellow students I had met at Northwestern.
Ira Glass
The best way to protect young black, brown, men of color, women of color, is to actually stop profiling, stop the prejudice, and stop the judgment first.
Hill Harper
Show me a man who feels bitterly toward John Brown, and let me hear what noble verse he can repeat. He’ll be as dumb as if his lips were stone.
Henry David Thoreau
People often think that they are eating really healthy when all the food they are eating is genetically modified. So nothing genetically modified, only real food, grains, brown rice.
Diamond Dallas Page
Dan Brown and the ‘Da Vinci Code’ have been around well over a decade now, and to be perfectly honest, both he and it have become a joke.
Michelle Dean
I want to be remembered for a body of work so that when the next guy comes up, he could think of Sterling K. Brown in the same way that I think of Andre Braugher and James Earl Jones.
Sterling K. Brown
I love when people walk into my house and start grinning: “This is too much – this is so you!” Why give people brown cardboard when you can give them embroidered, crystal-flecked organza?
Kimora Lee Simmons
Blues artists now try and stay in a box. Back in the day at all the clubs you would see James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, The Isley Brothers, Little Richard and Etta James all play the same venues. It was a mix of funk, soul, blues and rock ‘n’ roll.
Phil Collen
I know a lot of famous people didn’t do well at school, like James Brown; he dropped out in fifth grade to be an entertainer, I respect that… but that’s not going to be me. I’m not going to be able to do anything but work as hard as possible all the time and compete with everyone I know all the time to make it.
Ned Vizzini
Lucy: You learn more when you lose Charlie Brown: Well then I must be the smartest person in world!!!
Charles M. Schulz
Britain went to war in 1939 in the name of freedom and democracy, but fielded armies within whose ranks were black and brown men who were regarded and often treated as second-class citizens.
David Olusoga
I believe in recognizing every human being as a human being–neither white, black, brown, or red; and when you are dealing with humanity as a family there’s no question of integration or intermarriage. It’s just one human being marrying another human being or one human being living around and with another human being.
Malcolm X
Our crumbling infrastructure disproportionately harms Black, brown, Indigenous, and low-income communities. The negative health impacts arising from fossil fuel use, industrial pollution, and toxic materials in our homes and schools are literally making us sick.
Jamaal Bowman
The Brown decision promised that every child, regardless of the color of his or her skin, would have unequivocal access to quality education and an equal opportunity to pursue his/her dreams
Ed Markey
I picture my epitaph: ‘Here lies Paul Newman, who died a failure because his eyes turned brown.
Paul Newman
Every man should own a navy cashmere jacket with gold buttons, a grey suit, black shoes shoes for the city, brown shoes for elsewhere. Everything else should be simple and really well made.
Thom Browne
Larry Brown thought Steve Francis was a Larry Brown type of player.
Isaiah Thomas
Such a blush In the midst of brown was born, Like red poppies grown with corn.
Thomas Hood
It would be much easier to just make black, brown and beige clothes. But I do not see the world in black and white and beige. I find colors incredibly important.
Jean Pigozzi
Dan Brown is a character from ‘Foucault’s Pendulum!’ I invented him. He shares my characters’ fascinations – the world conspiracy of Rosicrucians, Masons, and Jesuits. The role of the Knights Templar. The hermetic secret. The principle that everything is connected. I suspect Dan Brown might not even exist.
Umberto Eco
America is composed of all kinds of people – part of the difficulty in our nation today is due to the fact that we are not utilising the abilities and the talents of other brown and black peoples and females that have something to bring to the creativity and the rejuvenation and the revitalisation of this country.
Shirley Chisholm
You can’t understand what happened to Michael Brown in Ferguson, you can’t understand what happened to Eric Garner in New York City, without understanding this narrative of racial difference that was created during the slave years.
Bryan Stevenson
The death penalty is an inhumane punishment that disproportionately violates the human rights of Black, brown, indigenous, and other marginalized people.
Cori Bush
It’s bluesy, rocky jazz. I call it soul music, but it’s not James Brown soul music. It comes from my soul. It comes from a deeper place. Duffy has that similar old school soul sound to herself. If I opened for Duffy, that would make sense to me, in my head.
Tinsel Korey
Charlie Brown is almost a tragic figure.
Brian Walker
I remember players talking to Willie Brown in my presence. Receivers asking, ‘Is this who you drafted? I can’t believe this is who you drafted.’ I was hearing it from my defensive backs: ‘Man, you got a long way to go.’
Nnamdi Asomugha
You know, if James Brown is the godfather of soul then Richard Pryor is the godfather of comedy, period. That man knocked down all those last freedom of speech doors.
Eddie Griffin
You don’t want your credibility banana to turn brown, but you do want to speak out about what you believe in.
Bradley Whitford
There would be no Rock and Roll without Ike Turner, James Brown, Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Allen Toussaint, etc. Fake ghetto books and fake ghetto music. Elvis Presley, whom they idol, is merely a karaoke makeover of James Brown and Chuck Berry.
Ishmael Reed
An outrageous instinct to love and be loved blinded your arms to lines of propriety––Women and Men, Christians and Jews, Muslims and Buddhists, white, black, red, brown. An outrageous instinct to love and be loved executed your brain every hour on the hour.
Instead of trying crazy diets now, I just live by a few easy rules: I try to stay away from white flour as much as I can – I go for grains and brown rice instead, and I pick lean meats, like chicken or turkey, over red meat most of the time.
Jenna Ushkowitz
The 60s passed and faded and I grew older, and in 1987 bought a house in upstate New York, and it turned out that John Brown was buried down the road from my house and that he had lived there longer than anywhere else and his house was still standing.
Russell Banks
As Tony [Blair] said in his book, Gordon [Brown] was brilliant and impossible. If he’d just been one of those things, the options are obvious.
Alastair Campbell
In my fantasy I was always the savior. I would come to ‘Peanuts’ land and save everybody. Charlie Brown would fall madly in love with me. Peppermint Patty was so jealous.
Alicia Witt
Most people don’t realize that large pieces of coral, which have been painted brown and attached to the skull by common wood screws, can make a child look like a deer. Most people spend their lives going to bed when they’re not sleepy and getting up when they are!
Cindy Adams
I have a chip on my shoulder I pet every morning, a constant feeling like I have something to prove. Hearing that the canon can’t be diversified, there’s no room for more brown faces – that fueled my fire.
Jason Reynolds
John Brown first swam into my vision in the 1960s when I was a political activist in the civil rights movement and the anti-war movement at Chapel Hill, where I went to university.
Russell Banks
I am attracted to generic or ‘industrial’ colours; paper bag brown, file cabinet gray, industrial green, that kind of thing.
Robert Mangold
The first slap-jack given me for dinner was a cake of flour, partially fried in a pan of fat bacon. I nibbled about the brown edges and threw it, unbaked, against a barn door, where it stuck for days.
James Smith
The Ferguson Grand Jury’s decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown is a miscarriage of justice. It is a slap in the face to Americans nationwide who continue to hope and believe that justice will prevail.
Marcia Fudge
I’m really excited about this generation of young women that can look at a screen and see some brown people in space.
Tessa Thompson
Why, i’ faith, methinks she’s too low for a high praise, too brown for a fair praise and too little for a great praise: only this commendation I can afford her, that were she other than she is, she were unhandsome; and being no other but as she is, I do not like her. (Benedick, from Much Ado About Nothing)
William Shakespeare
I believe in the law. I think we have a great system of justice. But I do think that system of justice has been corrupted by racism and classism. I think it’s difficult for ‘poor people’ – poor white people, brown people – to be treated fairly before the law in the same way that upper-class people are.
Henry Louis Gates
Sometimes I feel that life has passed me by… Do you ever feel that way, Charlie Brown?” “I feel that it has knocked me down and walked all over me!
Charles M. Schulz
I grew up watching those blaxploitation movies. Ron O’Neal, Richard Roundtree, Jim Brown, Pam Grier. For the first time, I saw ‘The Negro’ get one over on ‘The Man.’
Samuel L. Jackson
Alec rolled beautiful brown eyes. “No fair playing the death card.” “No fair having it to play.
Rachel Vincent
The real terrorist threats are George W. Bush and his band of brown-shirted thugs.
Sandra Bernhard
He had had a severe shock some weeks earlier, when, having narrowly failed to capture a large grey-brown hare for his dinner, it had stopped at the edge of the forest, looked at him with disdain, and said, ‘Well, I hope you’re proud of yourself, that’s all,’ and had scampered off into the long grass
Neil Gaiman
I prefer a home-made breakfast of brown bread and egg whites.
Rituparna Sengupta
I was looking to show people I could act. I was looking for something that would take me away from the whole hunk riding off into the sunset thing that people wanted me to play after Brown Sugar.
Boris Kodjoe
I made a promise to Michael Brown’s parents that I would do everything to bring all of the resources of the federal government to this investigation so that it is transparent; so that it is a viable investigation, and we get to the truth.
William Lacy Clay, Jr.
When Gordon the Brown, in London in 1997, commissioned a great inquisition or survey of his new realm, the result was the so-called national asset register, which was immediately dubbed by the boomers of the UK Treasury ‘the modern Domesday Book.’
James Buchan
For a guy not to want to listen to a Jerry Rice, a Tim Brown, a Charlie Garner, doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Charles Woodson
After Brown, I went to Duke, to a Ph.D. program in American literature. My dad’s an English professor. After a year there, I was like, ‘Jesus. I don’t want to do this. I don’t want to be in the library.’ So I pulled the ripcord, and that was it.
Nathaniel Philbrick
If you take 12 waters from the coconut – not the ones you buy in the store, although that’s good – but the fresh coconuts, the little brown ones with the three eyes, if you take 12 of those within 24 hours, your blood will go back to the way it was when you were born.
Dick Gregory
As far as R&B, I listen to a lot of old school like the Temptations and Chris Brown.
Jacob Latimore
I usually listen to various kind of singers. Curtis Mayfield was my favorite. James Brown, Tina Turner, queen of soul, I started to get that musical essence from that time before I even do my first song.
Burning Spear
How you act, walk, look and talk is all part of Hip Hop culture. And the music is colorless. Hip Hop music is made from Black, brown, yellow, red and white.
Afrika Bambaataa
It has been a pleasure to play with all these artists. Pretenders was a real highlight, but also Damon, aka Badly Drawn Boy, Sinead… Ian Brown… all of these people I learn from and love to work with.
Andy Rourke
Purplish brown? Let’s agree it / is a color so bad we all flee it / it has no good use / so let’s name it Puce / from the sound we make when we see it.
Walter Darby Bannard
[The World Series] introduced me for the first time to a team with a lot of black players. Detroit had about three of them: I think it was Willie Horton, Gates Brown, and Earl Wilson – might have been one or two more in ’68.
Michael Eric Dyson
My heart shoots into my throat every time I think I see his loping walk, or catch sight of some floppy brown hair on a boy – but it’s never him, and each time it isn’t, my heart does a reverse trajectory down into the very pit of my stomach.
Lauren Oliver
When my woman kisses me I start dancing like James Brown. Ow! I Feel Good!
Bodybuilding is men on a stage in their underwear wearing brown paint showing other men their muscles. It is training for appearance only, and at the contest level requires a degree of vanity, narcissism, and self-absorption that I find distasteful and odd
Mark Rippetoe
There are lots of little brown girls out there who want to do something to change the world, and all I want to do is help them get there.
Stacy Brown-Philpot
The does not pay its writers. Tina Brown’s does pay its writers. You have to be paid because this is not a hobby. You have to keep that standard. You can’t ask grandpa to loan you money because you have to go to Afghanistan. I walked the picket line for that to continue.
Pete Hamill
‘Filly Brown’ gave me the wings to fly, but red carpets are still very uncomfortable.
Gina Rodriguez
Remember to be gentle with yourself and others. We are all children of chance and none can say why some fields will blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun.
Kent Nerburn
Clifford Brown was in the jazz circles considered to be probably the greatest trumpet player who ever lived.
Herb Alpert
I’ve also just finished filming the role of Robert Brown in ‘Just William,’ which is due to transmit on BBC One at Christmas.
Harry Melling
Switzerland is a small, steep country, much more up and down than sideways, and is all stuck over with large brown hotels built on the cuckoo clock style of architecture.
Ernest Hemingway
Noah’s daughter is different from the girls of ‘Suburgatory.’ She goes to Brown, so she’s in college, and she’s very smart. And his wife is very much a very strong woman. She’s certainly in charge at his house. She’s Dallas’s polar opposite.
Alan Tudyk
You have to be really comfortable with yourself because people are going to tell you that you’re eyes are too brown or you’re this or you’re that. And if you’re not comfortable with yourself, you could get pretty freaked out.
Brie Larson
I look at the likes of Darren Fletcher and Scott Brown and they’re just normal people. They are humble and work away to become the best they can. That’s the path I’ve tried to follow.
John McGinn
As a brown artist, I have mixed feelings about my relationship to art and my “responsibilities” post-Trump.
Vivek Shraya
I was bitten by a brown recluse spider. It got me as I was coming out of the shower. I’d never seen that kind of spider before, I’m from Canada and we don’t get those types up there.
I sit watching the brown oceanic waves of dry country rising into the foothills and I weep monotonously, seasickly. Life is not like the dim ironic stories I like to read, it is like a daytime serial on television. The banality will make you weep as much as anything else.
Alice Munro
One of my favorite things from my mom is a chocolate brown three-piece Chanel outfit. I had it tailored because she taught me the importance of fit.
Jillian Hervey
Beauty and the Beast seemed like it all was really brown. The whole thing was just so brown and orange and yellow, like Burger King or something. I don’t think I would have liked Beauty and the Beast at any age.
Mike Judge
I don’t understand the United Nations. They have selected Iran to sit on the U.N.’s women’s rights panel. Iran! Also on the panel – Ben Roethlisberger, Chris Brown, Phil Spector, Robert Blake and committee chairman O.J. Simpson.
Jay Leno
I can’t even imagine something being more fun than playing James Brown onstage.
Chadwick Boseman
I was obsessed with ‘The Swish of the Curtain’ by Pamela Brown when I was a child. It’s about a group of kids who create their own Amateur Theatre company. I was already absolute in my decision to be an actor by this point, but if anything, it confirmed to me that I was on the right path.
Phoebe Fox
Personally, I enjoy a bowl of brown rice for breakfast most of the time.
Kathy Freston
New Orleans invented the brown paper bag party – usually at a gathering in a home – where anyone darker than the bag attached to the door was denied entrance. The brown bag criterion survives as a metaphor for how the black cultural elite quite literally establishes caste along color lines within black life.
Michael Eric Dyson
If you’re white, you’re alright.
If you’re brown, stick around.
but if you’re black, oh baby.
Get back, Get back, Get back.
Huddie William Ledbetter
About 3 million IVF babies have been born since Louise Brown’s birth in 1978. Bizarrely, when this life-giving treatment was first considered, it was massively controversial. A storm of vitriolic protest came from many religious leaders, journalists, politicians, regrettably even other scientists and doctors.
Robert Winston
[Jerry Brown] is California’s way of celebrating the Year of the Child.
Jimmy Carter
I wanted to inspire people not to work under a bamboo ceiling. Whatever you are – yellow, black, white, brown – you don’t have to allow your skin to define who you are or how you operate your business. There’s not one face to anything.
Eddie Huang
Linus: It was a short summer, Charlie Brown. Charlie Brown: And it looks like it’s gonna be a looong winter.
Charles M. Schulz
Loving me with my shoes off
means loving my long brown legs,
sweet dears, as good as spoons;
and my feet, those two children
let out to play naked.
Anne Sexton
I’m touched by the Beatles. I want some of the music I do to reflect that. Here I am. I love Sly Stone and James Brown and Stevie Wonder, and I want my music to reflect some of that. Here I am. I’m touched by Jon Hendricks. I want some of my music to reflect that. And when I write, you’re going to hear it.
Al Jarreau
The adorably rubber-faced Ken James Stewart is jumping ship from the Shaw Festival after five years to play Charlie Brown
Richard Ouzounian
Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!
Liberty Hyde Bailey
So, Mexico, Brazil, they wanted their national culture to be ‘blackish’ – really brown, a beautiful brown blend. And finally, I discovered that in each of these societies the people at the bottom are the darkest skinned with the most African features.
Henry Louis Gates
I have had brown hair and bangs since I was 2. One year I dyed it blonde, which felt so weird.
Zooey Deschanel
The hero of the ‘Peanuts’ is Charlie Brown. I play the dog that sleeps on the top of his dog box who’s a philosopher. I’m drawn to that. So I’m drawn to Barbossa as I’m drawn to Einstein, because they are outsiders, and I suppose, as a character actor, that’s the turf that you’re locked into, in a way.
Geoffrey Rush
I remember seeing ‘Snow White’ and saying to my mother, ‘Will there ever be a Chocolate Brown?’ She said ‘Probably. Why not?’ I just never thought the first black princess would be me.
Anika Noni Rose
I didn’t know anything about Opus Die except from pop culture, like Dan Brown novels, which I knew wasn’t really knowing anything about Opus Die.
Wes Bentley
I grew in the inner city, listening to Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, James Brown, The Commodores – lots of soul music.
Stefon Harris
Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go ten thousand miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights?
Muhammad Ali
As always, there was an all-American war hero look to him, coded in his tousled brown hair, his summer-narrowed hazel eyes, the straight nose that ancient Anglo-Saxons had graciously passed on to him. Everything about him suggested valor and power and a firm handshake.
Maggie Stiefvater
I love cops. I think you have to walk in their shoes to understand, you know when they use violence, Michael Brown in Ferguson, a classic case.
Geraldo Rivera
I wanted to be cast because I’m an actor and not because of how I look or where I’m from. I’m brown. I want to be able to play a Spanish girl some day or a Mexican girl and learn the language. That’s what actors do: we act.
Priyanka Chopra
I need you,” he said to her, this woman who’d fought for her own right to live her life free of limits, “to build me some remote detonation devices.” Amazing brown eyes shot with blue peering into his as she pressed her nose to his. “You always say the most romantic things.
Nalini Singh
I like girls that are down to earth, intelligent, and don’t try to be anything that they’re not. One thing that I fall for all the time is girls with blue eyes and brown hair. There’s something about that combination that I find really sexy. It’s all in the eyes…and the personality, but that’s obvious.
Devon Bostick
