Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast, Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round, And while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn Throws up a steamy column, and the cups, That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each, So let us welcome peaceful evening in.
Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast, Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round, And, while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn Throws up a steamy column, and the cups, That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each, So let us welcome peaceful evening in.william cowper
Who digs hills because they do aspire, Throws down one mountain to cast up a higher.william shakespeare
Technology, while adding daily to our physical ease, Throws dailyanother loop of fine wire around our souls. It contributes hugely to our mobility, which we must not confuse with freedom. The extensions of our senses, which we find so fascinating, are not adding to the discrimination of our minds, since we need increasingly to take the reading of a needle on a dial to discover whether we think something isgood or bad, or right or wrong.
Nature's only interest is in having you procreate, then it Throws you away.Fay originally Franklin Birkinshaw Weldon
"When I was a freshman, I fooled around with shooting free Throws this way: For some reason, I thought you had to stay within the top half of that free-throw circle, so I would step back to just inside the top of the circle, take off from behind the line and dunk. They outlawed that, but I wouldn't have done it in a game, anyway. I was a good free throw shooter in college." Actually he was a 62% free throw shooter, which is poor except in comparison to his 51% as a pro.wilt chamberlain
It is better to ride a pony than a horse which Throws you.navjot singh sidhu
How far that little candle Throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a naughty world.william shakespeare
Nature has had regard in everything no less to the end than to the beginning and the continuance, just like a man who Throws up a ball. What good is it then for the ball to be thrown up, or harm for it to come down... what good is it to the bubble while it holds together, or what harm when it is burst?marcus aurelius
[My father] impressed upon me from the first, that the manner in which the world came into existence was a subject on which nothing was known: that the question, “Who made me?” cannot be answered, because we have no experience or authentic information from which to answer it; and that any answer only Throws the difficulty a step further back, since the question immediately presents itself, “Who made God?”john stuart mill
The part which is nearest to the earth... is without knots and is "clear." But the upper part, on account of the great heat in it Throws up branches into the air through the knots and this... is called "knotwood" because of its hardness and knottiness. The lowest part, after the tree is cut down and the sapwood of the same thrown away, is split up into four pieces and prepared for joiner's work, and so is called clearstock.vitruvius
Proudhon goes on to suggest that the real laws by which society functions have nothing to do with authority; they are not imposed from above, but stem from the nature of society itself. He sees the free emergence of such laws as the goal of social endeavour. … Proudhon conceiving a natural law of balance operating within society, rejects authority as an enemy and not a friend of order, and Throws back at the authoritarians the accusations leveled at anarchists; in the process he adopts the title he hopes to have cleared of obloquy.George Woodcock
When the captain Throws out his sheet-anchor, and the ship "rides at anchor," as it is called, there is a great strain on every link of that chain; and if one bad link breaks, off goes the anchor, and the ship is driven before the winds, and may be destroyed. Now, our character is very much like the chain; one bad piece vitiates and spoils it. So we must have a pure character.
This is a free country. A free society Throws up these kinds of people, who exercise their freedom in unusual ways. And if this is how he wants to do it, I must accept his constitutional right to do so.
If the Nation is living within its income, its credit is good. If, in some crises, it lives beyond its income for a year or two, it can usually borrow temporarily at reasonable rates. But if, like a spendthrift, it Throws discretion to the winds, and is willing to make no sacrifice at all in spending; if it extends its taxing to the limit of the people's power to pay and continues to pile up deficits, then it is on the road to bankruptcy.
I see their scattered gravestones gleaming white Through the pale dusk of the impending night. O'er all alike the imperial sunset Throws Its golden hues mingled with the rose; We give to each a tender thought and pass Out of the graveyards with their tangled grass.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We have for the first time a standard of Macedonian royal burial by which to judge other rich tombs. We have much new information on the military equipment of the era. We have a whole new chapter in the history of Greek tomb paintings, a fragmentary field but one which Throws unique and contemporary light on the whole lost achievement of Greek free painting.
She wads up the t-shirt, uses it to wipe a trickle of santorum from her ass, and Throws it under the cot.
Yet, all beneath the unrivall'd rose, The lowly daisy sweetly blows; Tho' large the forest's monarch Throws His army shade, Yet green the juicy hawthorn grows, Adown the glade.Robert Burns
Nature has had regard in everything no less to the end than to the beginning and the continuance, just like a man who Throws up a ball. What good is it then for the ball to be thrown up, or harm for it to come down... what good is it to the bubble while it holds together, or what harm when it is burst?
If people would only realize when they ask me why I don't do a picture with him - they ask me that all the time, and were quite keen on it while I was in Hollywood - if they'd only realize that he's gone 'way ahead of me. Why I couldn't begin to keep up with him. I couldn't even reach the steps he Throws away.
Note: Character is a vampire who says this to Buffy while fighting with her, when she appears to be threatening him with a cymbal stand. She then Throws it through a window, and while Luke is distracted temporarily by the blinding glare of a streetlamp that shines through the broken window, Buffy stakes him in the back, killing him.
Perhaps, moreover, he whose genius appears deepest and truest excels his fellows in nothing save the knack of expression ; he Throws out occasionally a lucky hint at truths of which every human soul is profoundly though unutterably conscious.Nathaniel Hawthorne
