Brow Quotations

Hope is the word which God has written on the brow of every man.
Victor Hugo

He is not dead who departs from life with a high and noble fame; but he is dead, even while living, whose brow is branded with infamy.
Ludwig Tieck

A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and worried to death by a frown on the right man's brow.
Ovid

Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who's sorry for a gnat or girl?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Pop music will never be low brow.
Lady Gaga
