Monsters merge and welter through the water's mounting Din. All hands, stand fast! A sailor sprints aloft, Hangs, swelling spider-like, among invisible nets, Surveys his slowly undulating snares, and waits.
Here is a pleasant situation, and yet nothing pleasant to be seen. Here is a harbour without ships, a port without trade, a fishery without nets, a people without business; and, that which is worse than all, they do not seem to desire business, much less do they understand it.Daniel Defoe
Skill'd to retire, and in retiring draw Hearts after them tangled in amorous nets.john milton
The reason why so few marriages are happy, is, because young ladies spend their time in making nets, not in making cages.jonathan swift
Out-worn heart, in a time out-worn, Come clear of the nets of wrong and right; Laugh, heart, again in the grey twilight, Sigh, heart, again in the dew of the morn.
Faith is letting down our nets into the transparent deeps at the Divine command, not knowing what we shall take.frederick William faber
The first attempts to consider the behavior of so-called "random neural nets" in a systematic way have led to a series of problems concerned with relations between the "structure" and the "function" of such nets. The "structure" of a random net is not a clearly defined topological manifold such as could be used to describe a circuit with explicitly given connections. In a random neural net, one does not speak of "this" neuron synapsing on "that" one, but rather in terms of tendencies and probabilities associated with points or regions in the net.Anatol Rapoport
Vain the ambition of kings, who seek by trophies and dead things to leave a living name behind, and weave but nets to catch the wind.john webster
I stand ready to negotiate, but I want no part of laws: I acknowledge none; I protest against every order with which some authority may feel pleased on the basis of some alleged necessity to over-rule my free will. Laws: We know what they are, and what they are worth! They are spider webs for the rich and mighty, steel chains for the poor and weak, fishing nets in the hands of government .Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Shrimps and the delicate periwinkle Such are the sea-fruits lasses love: Ho! to your nets till the blue stars twinkle, And the shutterless cottages gleam above!bayard taylor
Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other.Carol Saline
I am fortunate that I've to bowl at him only in the nets.
Laws : We know what they are, and what they are worth ! They are spider webs for the rich and mighty , steel chains for the poor and weak , fishing nets in the hands of government .
Children, if you dare to think Of the greatness, rareness, muchness, Fewness of this precious only Endless world in which you say You live, you think of things like this: Blocks of slate enclosing dappled Red and green, enclosing tawny Yellow nets, enclosing white And black acres of dominoes, Where a neat brown paper parcel Tempts you to untie the string.robert graves
