1634 Comus, A Mask, l.143-4.
An entrepreneur is very enthusiastic and dances to a different drum beat, but never considers success as something which equates to personal wealth.
See, the conquering hero comes! Sound the trumpets, beat the drums!
When awful darkness and silence reignOver the great Gromboolian plain,Through the long, long wintry nights.When the angry breakers roarAs they beat on the rocky shore;—When Storm-clouds brood on the towering heightsOf the Hills of the Chankly BoreEdward Lear
This is the voice of high midsummer's heat. The rasping vibrant clamour soars and shrills O'er all the meadowy range of shadeless hills, As if a host of giant cicadae beat The cymbals of their wings with tireless feet, Or brazen grasshoppers with triumphing note From the long swath proclaimed the fate that smote The clover and timothy-tops and meadowsweet.Sir Charles George Douglas Roberts
I have the feeling there are two dates in history when the whole world seemed to be working together perfectly to achieve certain things, when it beat to the pulse of chaotic events that erupted everywhere simultaneously, as if by chance: 1969 and 1989.
Ten good soldiers, wisely led, will beat a hundred without a head.
When the heart stops for one beat it is desire, when it stops for one life time it is love
Speak roughly to your little boy, And beat him when he sneezes: He only does it to annoy, Because he knows it teases.
When awful darkness and silence reign Over the great Gromboolian plain, Through the long, long wintry nights, When the angry breakers roar As they beat on the rocky shore When storm-clouds brood on the towering heights Of the Hills of the Chankly Bore.Edward Lear
There was a sound of revelry by night, And Belgium's capital had gathered then Her beauty and her chivalry, and bright Childe Harold's Pilgrimage Foul as their soil, and frigid as their snows. The lamps that shone o'er fair women and brave men; A thousand hearts beat happily; and when Music arose with its voluptuous swell, Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spake again, And all went merryas a marriage bell; But hush! hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell!Rochdale
I want all of you to know that I intend to beat this disease. And further, I intend to ride again as a professional cyclist.lance armstrong
The best way to beat him would be to hit him over the head with a racquet. Roger could win the Grand Slam if he keeps playing the way he is and, if he does that, it will equate to the two Grand Slams that I won because standards are much higher these days.roger federer
You know, before when (the police went) to work, they used to be like, 'I'm gonna kick somebody's ass today and so I hope I can catch somebody in a bad situation or breaking the law, because I'm gonna beat someone's ass in a big way, I think that attitude has changed.rodney king
"My mother is a ventriloquist – but not professionally. For ten years I thought the dog was telling me to kill my father." Waiting a beat, Liebman adds, "I got my brother to do it."
I don't hold it against the men who beat me because undoubtedly there are some ruffians of every nationality and the English are not exceptions.oswald pohl
He will be missed as a friend and colleague and as the ultimate professional. It's the end of Michael's career in Formula One so in that sense, it is the end of an era. When you look at his record, that's going to be difficult to beat.Michael Schumacher
Cassidy had been drawn to the crime beat because of its guaranteed drama. It offered murders, kidnappings, armed robbery, and the occasional hostage situation. But predictable it wasn’t.lis wiehl
Sir Roger made several reflections on the greatness of the British Nation; as, that one Englishman could beat three Frenchmen; that we could never be in danger of Popery so long as we took care of our fleet; that the Thames was the noblest river in Europe...with many other honest prejudices which naturally cleave to the heart of a true Englishman.joseph addison
Elected Silence, sing to me And beat upon my whorlèd ear, Pipe me to pastures still and be The music that I care to hear.gerard manley hopkins
The barge she sat in, like a burnish'd throne, Burn'd on the water: the poop was beaten gold; Purple the sails, and so perfumed that The winds were love-sick with them: the oars were silver, Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made The water which they beat to follow faster, As amorous of their strokes.william shakespeare
But only in time can the moment in the rose - garden , The moment in the arbour where the rain beat, The moment in the draughty church at smokefall Be remembered; involved with past and future .
