Letter "B" » bray
«If a donkey bray at you, don't bray at him»
«I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart. I am. I am. I am.»
«Among the bushes they brayed; under the nettles they were gathered together.»
«You never see animals going through the absurd and often horrible fooleries of magic and religion. Dogs do not ritually urinate in the hope of persuading heaven to do the same and send down rain. Asses do not bray a liturgy to cloudless skies. Nor do cats attempt, by abstinence from cat's meat, to wheedle the feline spirits into benevolence. Only man behaves with such gratuitous folly. It is the price he has to pay for being intelligent but not, as yet, quite intelligent enough.»

«Doth the wild ass bray when he hath grass? or loweth the ox over his fodder? / Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg? / The things that my soul refused to touch are as my sorrowful meat.»
«Though thou shouldst bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him.»
«Every ass loves to hear himself bray»
«An ass may bray a good while before he shakes the stars down»
