Show me a character whose life arouses my curiosity, and my flesh begins crawling with suspense.
Surely in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of night and day and the ship that runs in the sea with profit to men, and the water God sends down from heaven therewith reviving the earth after it is dead and His scattering abroad in it all manner of crawling thing, and the turning about of the winds and the clouds compelled between heaven and earth surely there are signs fora people having understanding.The Koran
We joined long wagon trains moving south; we met hundreds of wagons going north; the roads east and west were crawling lines of families traveling under canvas, looking for work, for another foothold somewhere on the land.... The country was ruined, the whole world was ruined; nothing like this had ever happened before. There was no hope, but everyone felt the courage of despair.rose wilder lane
That's a bit like asking a man crawling across the Sahara whether he would prefer Perrier or Malvern water.Alan Bennett
Space can be mapped and crossed and occupied without definable limit; but it can never be conquered. When our race has reached its ultimate achievements, and the stars themselves are scattered no more widely than the seed of Adam, even then we shall still be like ants crawling on the face of the Earth. The ants have covered the world, but have they conquered it for what do their countless colonies know of it, or of each other?
Grab a weapon and explosives, quick! The ship's boilers line these passageways; place your charges as we go. This place will be crawling with Krauts.
And that inverted Bowl they call the Sky, Whereunder crawling coop'd we live and die, Lift not your hands to it for help for it As impotently moves as you or I.omar khayyám
Once we know what we need to do, our nanotechnologies should enable us to construct replacement bodies and brains that won't be constrained to work at the crawling pace of "real time." The events in our computer chips already happen millions of times faster than those in brain cells. Hence, we could design our "mind-children" to think a million times faster than we do. To such a being, half a minute might seem as long as one of our years, and each hour as long as an entire human lifetime.
The dust's for crawling, heaven's for flying, Wherefore, O Soul, whose wings are grown, Soar upward to the sun!Edgar Lee Masters
If you need something to worship, then worship life all life, every last crawling bit of it! We're all in this beauty together!
What God is he, writes laws of peace, & clothes him in a tempest What pitying Angel lusts for tears, and fans himself with sighs What crawling villain preaches abstinence & wraps himself In fat of lambs? no more I follow, no more obedience pay!
