The rose is red, the violet's blue the honey's sweet, and so are you. Thou are my love and I am thine, I drew thee to my Valentine. The lot was cast and then I drew, and Fortune said it shou'd be you.
Bazarov drew himself up haughtily. "I don't adopt any one's ideas; I have my own."Ivan Turgenev
A man of vitality and vehemence, Mujib became the political Gandhi of the Bengalis, symbolizing their hopes and voicing their grievances. Not even Pakistan's founder, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, drew the million-strong throngs that Mujib has attracted in Dacca. Nor, for that matter, has any subcontinent politician since Gandhi's day spent so much time behind bars for his political beliefs.sheikh mujibur rahman
"When Brzezinski says we lured the Russians into an 'Afghan trap' - by supporting the Mujahadeen and that was a great achievement, we've now destroyed Afghanistan and set up a terrorist network, a wonderful achievement - in the same book, I said we have to be cautious about this because he may be boasting. Unless he gives us some evidence, the fact that he says later, 'Yes, we drew them into an Afghan trap' doesn't prove it."zbigniew brzezinski
Shelley, whose talents would otherwise have made him eligible, was an outcast from the first ... They always knew where to draw the line and they drew it, emphatically, at Shelley. I was informed that Byron could be forgiven because, though he had sinned, he had been led into sin by the unfortunate circumstances of his youth, and had always been haunted by remorse, but that for Shelley's moral character there was nothing to be said since he acted on principle and therefore he could not be worth reading.Percy Bysshe Shelley
They drew near, and observing that they were very comfortable standing before the warm fire, they put on logs and, while thus keeping it alive, brought up other people to it, showing them by signs how much comfort they got from it. In that gathering of men, at a time when utterance of sound was purely individual, from daily habits they fixed upon articulate words just as these had happened to come; then, from indicating by name things in common use, the result was that in this chance way they began to talk, and thus originated conversation with one another.vitruvius
Just where the breath of life his nostrils drew, A charge of snuff the wily virgin threw; The gnomes direct, to every atom just, The pungent grains of titillating dust, Sudden, with starting tears each eye o'erflows, And the high dome re-echoes to his nose.Alexander Pope
"Did the rapid-response teams go in?" Murray asked. "Why don't they just take over?" "They didn't go in at all," drew said. "They called me first and I waved them off. You think it's a bad situation now, try bringing in eight P90-toting goons wearing biosuits and watch the press jizz all over themselves."
Writers who drew, they all seemed to draw the same way. They managed to keep that childlike creativity in their line.Al Hirschfeld
The last breath I drew in he wished might be through a pipe and exhaled in a pun.Charles Lamb
And then I asked him with my eyes to ask again (yes),And then he asked me would I (yes, yes).I put my arms around him (yes),And drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts,And his heart was going like mad.Yes, I said yes, I will, yes.amber (pop star)
I think the title page I drew for Salomé was after all "impossible". You see booksellers couldn't stick it up in their windows.aubrey beardsley
When I was little in Spokane, Washington I drew all the time... and my father would bring paper home ... and I mostly drew browning automatic water-cooled sub-machine guns... that was my favorite.david lynch
As Christ's ministry drew to its close, its severity and its gentleness both increased; its severity to the class from whom it never turned away. Side by side through all His manifestations of Himself, there were the two aspects: "He showed Himself froward " (if I may quote the word) to the self-righteous and the Pharisee; and He bent with more than a woman's tenderness of 'yearning love over the darkness and sinfulness, which in its great darkness dimly knew itself blind, and in its sinfulness stretched out a lame hand of faith, and groped after a Divine deliverer.alexander maclaren
It was a deep true thought which the old painters had, when they drew John as likest to his Lord. Love makes us like.alexander maclaren
An empty taxi drew up outside 10 Downing Street and Clement Attlee got out of it.clement attlee
In the beginning I drew and painted from nature in order to know her. Then later, only to fall under her spell. And today, to let her mirror my thoughts and feelings.william baziotes
Let old Timotheus yield the prize, Or both divide the crown; He rais’d a mortal to the skies; She drew an angel down.john dryden
What drew me in was the individual concern shown for me. Only after the first semester did I realize how awesome the curriculum was.
Issuing a death threat against somebody who drew a picture isn’t my thing, but this isn’t either.
No author ever drew a character, consistent to human nature, but what he was forced to ascribe to it many inconsistencies.Lytton
While Reason drew the plan, the Heart inform'd The moral page and Fancy lent it grace.james thomson
As I stood entranced at this fulfillment of my dearest hopes [of seeing Mount Kenya], I drew a great sigh of satisfaction; and as I said to Brahmi, 'Look!' and pointed to the glittering crystal, I am not very sure but there was something like a tear in my eye. ~ Joseph Thomson
But the Red Queen drew herself up rather stiffly, and said 'Queens never make bargains'Lewis Carroll
Fëanor, being come to his full might, was filled a new thought, or it may be that some shadow of foreknowledge came to him of the doom that drew near; and he pondered how the light of the Trees, the glory of the Blessed Realm, might be preserved imperishable. Then he began a long and secret labour, and he summoned all his lore, and his power, and his subtle skill; and at the end of all he made the Silmarils.
I spoke to over 140 songwriters whose work Presley recorded, and most remarked about his uncanny ability to capture the essence and make it his own; like a musical geneticist, he drew from every strand of DNA in a songwriter's work, which ultimately helped shape his own distinctive personal interpretation; just listen to the wide stylistic swath of genre-hopping material he recorded during his career … you can hear the breath of a master stylist who breathed new life into every song he cut.
