The story had held us, round the fire, sufficiently breathless, but except the obvious remark that it was gruesome, as, on Christmas Eve in an old house, a strange tale should essentially be.
Breathless and bewildered like an old ladyat a busy intersection.Dean Gooderham Acheson
'Clearer and nearer still,' cried the Rat joyously. 'Now you must surely hear it! Ah at last I see you do!' Breathless and transfixed the Mole stopped rowing as the liquid run of that glad piping broke on him like a wave, caught him up, and possessed him utterly. He saw the tears on his comrade's cheeks, and bowed his head and understood.Kenneth Grahame
The holy time is quiet as a Nun Breathless with adoration.william wordsworth
Thou, too, sail on,O Ship of State! Sail on,O UNION, strong and great! Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years, Is hanging Breathless on thy fate!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Instead of a wild, hatless little savage jumping into the house, and rushing to squeeze us all Breathless, there lighted from a handsome black pony a very dignified person with brown ringlets falling from the cover of a feathered beaver, and a long cloth habit which she was obliged to hold up with both hands that she might sail in.emily brontë
Most men pursue pleasure with such Breathless haste that they hurry past it.
The wind breath'd soft as lover's sigh, And, oft renew'd, seem'd oft to die, With Breathless pause between, O who, with speech of war and woes, Would wish to break the soft repose Of such enchanting scene!walter scott
Is it a fact or have I dreamt it that by means of electricity, the world of matter has become a great nerve, vibrating thousands of miles in a Breathless point of time? Rather, the round globe is a vast head, a brain, instinct with intelligence: or shall we say it is itself a thought, nothing but thought, and no longer the substance which we dreamed it.Nathaniel Hawthorne
Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State! Sail on, O Union, strong and great! Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years, Is hanging Breathless on thy fate!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
