I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder.
Held in a lunar synthesis, Whispering lunar incantations Dissolve the floors of memory And all its clear relations Its divisions and precisions.1917 Prufrock and Other Observations,'Rhapsody on a Windy Night'.
For myself, I care not what may be the result. Dissolve, if you please, the Parliament you have betrayed, and appeal to the people, who, I believe, mistrust you. For me there remains this at least the opportunity of expressing thus publicly my belief that a Conservative Government is an Organised Hypocrisy.benjamin disraeli
In the upstairs bedroom, old Ann dies very slowly, remembering the events of the long-ago wedding night and the next morning...She is attended by a nurse with an Irish accent (Eileen Atkins), who sometimes prompts her: "Remember a happy time!" Dissolve to Ann's memory of a happy time. It is so mundane that if it qualifies as a high point in her life, it compares with Paris Hilton remembering a good stick of gum.roger ebert
Fade far away, Dissolve, and quite forget What thou among the leaves hast never known, The weariness, the fever, and the fret Here, where men sit and hear each other groan; Where palsy shakes a few, sad, last grey hairs, Where youth grows pale, and spectre-thin, and dies; Where but to think is to be full of sorrow And leaden-eyed despairs.john keats
How few the days are that hold the mind in place; like a tapestry hanging on four or five hooks. Especially the day you stop becoming; the day you merelyare. I suppose it's when the principles Dissolve, and instead of the general gray of what ought to be you begin to see what is? The word 'Now' is like a bomb through the window, and it ticks.Arthur Miller
One begins to think with that new building block, rather than with littler pieces. And finally, the things which seem like elements Dissolve, and leave a fabric of relationships behind, which is the stuff that actually repeats itself, and gives the structure to a building or a town.christopher alexander
To my mind this makes psychedelics central to any political reconstruction, because these are the only force in nature that actually Dissolve linguistics structures; lets the mechanics of syntax to be visible, allows the possibility for rapid introduction and spread of new concepts; gives permission for new ways of seeing; and this is what we have to do, we have to change our minds.terence mckenna
I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From the seas and the streams; I bear light shade for the leaves when laid In their noonday dreams. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken The sweet buds every one, When rocked to rest on their mother's breast, As she dances about the sun. I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I Dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Like bubbles in the water, the worlds rise, exist and Dissolve in the Supreme Self, which is the material cause and the prop of everything.p. 14: Quote nr. 8 (Atma Bodha (1987))
Everything which distinguishes man from the animals depends upon this ability to volatilize perceptual metaphors in a schema, and thus to Dissolve an image into a concept.Friedrich Nietzsche, in On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense (1873)
But I have seen my obstacles: trivialities, learning and poetry. This last needs explaining: the old artist's readiness to Dissolve characters into a haze. Characters cannot come alive and fight and guide the world unless the novelist wants them to remain characters.E. M. Forster, Commonplace Book (1985), p. 151
A little patience , and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells Dissolve, and the people , recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles .Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Taylor (June 1798), after the passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts.
I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From the seas and the streams; I bear light shade for the leaves when laid In their noonday dreams. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken The sweet buds every one, When rocked to rest on their mother's breast, As she dances about the sun. I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I Dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder.St. 1.
Watch what happens when you Dissolve all the electrons from a body of solid matter.Who: Ur
To destroy this invisible government, to Dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.Theodore Roosevelt's 1912 Platform of the Progressive Party
Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits, and Are melted into air, into thin air; And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall Dissolve, And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on; and our little life Is rounded with a sleep.Prospero, scene i
Anarchism as a political philosophy seeks to Dissolve all forms of authority and power, and if possible, wishes their complete abolition.Peter Marshall, in Demanding the Impossible: A History of Anarchism (1992), p. 47
