if a girl likes me a lotand starts getting real nervousand suddenly begins asking me funny questionsand looks sad if I give the wrong answersand she says things like,"Do you think it's going to rain?"and I say, "It beats me,"and she says, "Oh,"and looks a little sadat the clear blue California sky,I think: Thank God, it's you, baby, this time Instead of me.
Wearing the white flower of a blameless life, Before a thousand peering littlenesses, In that fierce light which beats upon a throne, And blackens every blot.Tennyson
All is the play of beats and they will always remain the same as ever, you can only add instruments; so fusion is fine if created esthetically. My only concern always has been, is of maintaining the purity of our forms and not creating a fusion that confuses the audience in identifying the original beauty and qualities of our traditional dances.
Nobody and nothing beats The Simpsons. Even after all this time, it's still the best satire since Monty Python.alice cooper
I went one afternoon to the church of my childhood and had a vision of what I must have really meant with "Beat"... the vision of the word Beat as being to mean beatific... People began to call themselves beatniks, beats, jazzniks, bopniks, bugniks and finally I was called the "avatar" of all this.jack kerouac
It was great mixing dance beats with the choir. The reaction of the classically trained choir when asked to sing on top of dance beats was great.jesper kyd
A brave man struggling in the storms of fate,And greatly falling with a falling state.While Cato gives his little senate laws,What bosom beats not in his country's cause?Alexander Pope
Labor is the true alchemist that beats out in patient transmutation the baser metals into gold.william morley punshon
Now, we are agreed, I and my destinies. The total world, Above, below, whate'er is seen or known, And all that men, and all that gods enact, Hopes, fears, imaginations, purposes; With joy, and pain, and every pulse that beats In the great body of the universe, I give to the eternal sisterhood, To make my peace withal! And cast this husk, This hated, mangled, and dishonour'd carcase Into the balance; so have I redeem'd My proper birthright, even the changeless mind, The imperishable essence uncontroll'd.hartley coleridge
I have worked for many years with Sir John and I know only too well how wise he can be. I also know what a kind heart beats under his severe exterior?though he would never admit it. He has often, in my view, been unfairly criticized but, as Financial Secretary, he has done far more for Hong Kong than most people, and much more than most people realize.john james cowperthwaite
"There's no courage", The Prophet said, "before the war has begun." Drunkards vaunt their bravery when you speak of war. But in the blaze of battle they scatter like mice. I'm astonished by the man who wants purity And yet trembles when the harshness of polishing begin... When a man beats a carpet again and again It's not the carpet he's attacking, but the dirt in it.jalal al-din muhammad rumi
When at last the gods triumph once more over evil, the tension breaks, the music stops, and slowly the drum beats cease. Almost unwillingly one wakes up from the reverie, tired and exhauseted, but triumphant as one who has danced with gods.
"Very astonishing indeed! strange thing!" (Turning the Dumpling round, rejoined the King), "'Tis most extraordinary, then, all this is; It beats Penetti's conjuring all to pieces; Strange I should never of a Dumpling dream! But, Goody, tell me where, where, where's the Seam?" "Sire, there's no Seam," quoth she; "I never knew That folks did Apple-Dumplings sew." "No!" cried the staring Monarch with a grin; "How, how the devil got the Apple in?"john wolcot
The midge's wing beats to and fro A thousand times ere one can utter "O."coventry patmore
Kiss girls all you want to, it beats the hell out of card games.
As the palm-tree standeth so straight and so tall, The more the hail beats, and the more the rains fall.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
This thing all things devours: Birds, beasts, trees, flowers; Gnaws iron, bites steel, Grinds hard stones to meal; Slays king, ruins town, And beats high mountain down.
I never did know exactly what was meant by the term "The beats," but let's say that the original meeting, association, comradeship of Allen Ginsberg, myself, Michael McClure, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Philip Whalen, who's not here, Lew Welch, who's dead, Gregory Corso, for me, to a somewhat lesser extent (I never knew Gregory as well as the others) did embody a criticism and a vision which we shared in various ways, and then went our own ways for many years.gary snyder
World-wide apart, and yet akin, As showing that the human heart beats on forever as of old.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
