- All quotes of Harold Brodkey

You cannot hear the name Martin Luther King, Jr., and not think of death. You might hear the words 'I have a dream,' but they will doubtlessly only serve to underscore an image of a simple motel balcony, a large man made small, a pool of blood. For as famous as he may have been in life, it is - and was - death that ultimately defined him.

Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.

Quote by Helen Keller
