I had to pull about twenty pieces of broken glass out of my hand using tweezers and antiseptic cream. I'm never going to have a game of arm wrestling with Michael Howard again.
And as she wept, her tears to pearl he turned, And wound them on his arm, and for her mourned.Christopher Marlowe
When we read or hear how some professed Christian has turned defaulter, or lapsed into drunkenness, or slipped from the communion table into open disgrace, it simply means than a human arm has broken. The man has forsaken the everlasting arms.theodore l. cuyler
Soon shall thy arm, unconquer’d steam! afarDrag the slow barge, or drive the rapid car;Or on wide-waving wings expanded bearThe flying chariot through the field of air.erasmus darwin
"You are better off than I am , for while you have lost your left (arm), I have lost my right arm."thomas "stonewall" jackson
I . . . know how much easier it is to lean on an arm of flesh than on the Lord; but I have learned too how much less safe it is.james hudson taylor
Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows; who shares his joys with those who are sad; whose hand is never closed against the needy; whose arm is ever outstretched to aid the week; whose sympathy is quick and genuine in time of trouble; who recognizes a comrade and brother in every man he meets upon life's common road; who lives his life throughout the entire year in the Christmas spirit.
Lay your sleeping head, my love Human on my faithless arm; Time and fevers burn away Individual beauty from Thoughtful children, and the grave Proves the child ephemeral; But in my arms till break of day Let the living creature lie: Mortal, guilty, but to me The entirely beautiful.wystan hugh auden
For it is certain that the future will bring realities for which our traditional optimism fails to prepare us and against which our economic momentum fails to arm us.robert heilbroner
Faith loves to lean on time's destroying arm, And age, like distance, lends a double charm.
If our armies are not so numerous as those of other nations, they have qualities which render them more valuable. Those raised by voluntary enlistment are more effective than those raised by conscription; and I should think a general would feel much more confidence in an arm raised as our armies are raised, than he could possibly have while leading to battle a band of slaves torn from their homes by force.temple, henry, 3rd viscount palmerston
Ir sult bescheidenlîche sîn arm unde rîche. wan swâ der hêrre gar vertuot, daz ist niht hêrlîcher muot: sament er ab schaz ze sere, daz sint och unêre.wolfram von eschenbach
Rejoice in Christ Jesus, for in Him you are complete. His righteousness is over you, His strong arm is around you; and he who puts his soul in Christ's keeping shall never perish nor come into condemnation. This is a safe place to rest in. "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?"
Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him.
Island of bliss! amid the subject Seas, That thunder round thy rocky coasts, set up, At once the wonder, terror, and delight Of distant nations; whose remotest shore Can soon be shaken by thy naval arm; Not to be shook thyself, but all assaults Baffling, like thy hoar cliffs the loud sea-wave.james thomson
O God, thy arm was here; And not to us, but to thy arm alone, Ascribe we all!william shakespeare
Surely we may hope that as men get to see that prayer has not succeeded in its efforts to "move the arm which moves the world , to bring salvation down, they may turn to the more difficult, but also the more hopeful task, of moving their own arms to work out for their own salvation.
By the yawning tree in the twilight The King unbound his sword , Severed the harp of all his goods, And there in the cool and soundless woods Sounded a single chord. Then laughed ; and watched the finches flash, The sullen flies in swarm, And went unarmed over the hills, With the harp upon his arm...
A popular Government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
Let me lament, With tears as sovereign as the blood of hearts, That thou, my brother, my competitor In top of all design, my mate in empire, Friend and companion in the front of war, The arm of mine own body, and the heart Where mine his thoughts did kindle, that our stars, Unreconciliable, should divide Our equalness to this.
Today is Trinity Sunday. Centuries ago words were written to be a call and a spur to the faithful servants of Truth and Justice: "arm yourselves, and be ye men of valor, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be."
Robes and furr'd gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold, And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks; arm it in rags, a pigmy's straw doth pierce it.william shakespeare
