One of our great poets is sunk in his reputation, because he could never forgive any conceit which came in his way; but swept like a drag-net, great and small. There wasplentyenough, butthedisheswereill-sorted; whole pyramids of sweetmeats, for boys and women; but little of solid meat for men.
This little steamer, like all her brave and battered sisters, is immortal. She'll go sailing proudly down the years in the epic of Dunkirk. And our great-great-grand-children, when they learn how we began this war by snatching glory out of defeat, and then Swept on to victory, may also learn how the little holiday steamers made an excursion to hell and came back glorious.John Priestly
"In all these countries, (Özal Swept his hand across the map from Afghanistan to Algeria) too many people have too little hope."turgut Özal
When I was a lad I served a term As office boy to an attorney's firm. I cleaned the windows and I Swept the floor, And I polished up the handle of the big front door. I polished up that handle so carefullee That now I am the Ruler of the Queen's Navee!Sir W(illiam) S(chwenck) Gilbert
A feeling of emulsion Swept over me.
"A light wind Swept over the corn; and all nature laughed in the sunshine."anne brontë
It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which Swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness.edward bulwer-lytton
If the street life, not the Whitechapel street life, but that of the common but so-called respectable part of town is in any city more gloomy, more ugly, more grimy, more cruel than in London, I certainly don't care to see it. Sometimes it occurs to one that possibly all the failures of this generation, the world over, have been suddenly Swept into London, for the streets are a restless, breathing, malodorous pageant of the seedy of all nations.willa cather
Kicking leaves you momentarily on one foot, and for that moment you are in a very weak position. If you were to be Swept off your feet, you would be finished. This is why lifting your feet off the ground is crazy.morihei ueshiba
[The English ruling classes are] Freemasons thoroughly infected by Juda. The British people must be liberated from the Antichrist Juda. We must drive Juda out of England just as he has been chased out of the Continent...Juda's plan has been smashed to pieces and they themselves Swept out of the European Continent! [Europe is] consolidating and closing itself off from British influences after the elimination of the British and the Jews!
The sense of perspective that interaction with multiple cultures gives you I find to be extremely valuable, because it allows you to see the structure of a country with greater clarity, and gives you a sense of mental independence. You're not Swept up in the trivialities of a nation. You can concentrate on the serious matters.julian assange

Two such as you with such a master speed Cannot be parted nor be Swept away From one another once you are agreed That life is only life forevermore Together wing to wing and oar to oar.robert frost
The hopelessness of the Turkish Government should make me witness with delight its being Swept out of the countries which it tortures. Next to the Ottoman Government nothing can be more deplorable and blameworthy than jealousies between Greek and Slav and plans by the States already existing for appropriating other territory. Why not Macedonia for the Macedonians as well as Bulgaria for the Bulgarians and Serbia for the Serbians?william ewart gladstone
O that our souls could scale a height like this, A mighty mountain Swept o'er by the bleak Keen winds of heaven; and, standing on that peak Above the blinding clouds of prejudice , Would we could see all truly as it is; The calm eternal truth would keep us meek.robinson jeffers
Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be Swept away before the tide of time. I must continue to bear testimony to truth even if I am forsaken by all. Mine may today be a voice in the wilderness, but it will be heard when all other voices are silenced, if it is the voice of Truth.Mahatma Gandhi
Having a clear faith , based on the creed of the church is often labeled today as fundamentalism. Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and Swept along by every wind of teaching, look like the only attitude acceptable to today's standards. We are moving toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires.
And fast through the midnight dark and drear, Through the whistling sleet and snow, Like a sheeted ghost, the vessel Swept Towards the reef of Norman's Woe.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The wind Swept, cold and pure, cut against our faces whistled in our ears filled our eyes with tears, but all unheeded as we gazed at the marvel stretched before us. For all doubts faded and fears were dispelled as before us stretched immortality, purification, a revelation of the world as God sees it, where no man has stepped to mar it.
Far too many people have been Swept into the post-9/11 system of fear that is the basis of all public policy these days.
If we can recover the naturalistic ambitions of Marx , Nietzsche , and Freud , ... philosophy becomes relevant because the world riven as it is with hypocrisy and concealment desperately needs a hermeneutics of suspicion to unmask it. And by taking these three seminal figures of the Continental traditions as philosophical naturalists we show their work to be continuous with the naturalistic turn that has Swept Anglophone philosophy over the past several decades. ... The antipathy to naturalism often thought to be constitutive of “the Continental tradition” is simply an artifact of cutting the joints of that tradition in certain places.
Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be Swept away before the tide of time. I must continue to bear testimony to truth even if I am forsaken by all. Mine may today be a voice in the wilderness, but it will be heard when all other voices are silenced, if it is the voice of Truth.
God keeps a niche In Heaven, to hold our idols; and albeit He brake them to our faces, and denied That our close kisses should impair their white, I know we shall behold them raised, complete, The dust Swept from their beauty, glorified, New Memnons singing in the great God-light.
The rout of fascism, in which the Soviet Union played the decisive role, generated a mighty tide of socio-political changes which Swept across the globe.
Be not Swept off your feet by the vividness of the impression, but say, "Impression, wait for me a little. Let me see what you are and what you represent. Let me try you."
