He was never in one spot for more than half a second, all my punches were aimed and timed properly but they always wound up hitting empty air. He'd jump in and out, slamming me with a left and whirling me around with his right or the other way around. My arms were plastered with leather and although I jabbed, hooked and crossed, it was like fighting an octopus.
One of the deep mysteries to me is our logo, the symbol of lust and knowledge, bitten into, all crossed with the colors of the rainbow in the wrong order. You couldn't dream a more appropriate logo: lust, knowledge, hope and anarchy.jean-louis gassée
All socialists have bad backs because we slouch — except when we’re watching the news when we sit on the edge of our seats, shout, and wave our arms. Generally we sit hunched, arms crossed in a judgemental way, the whole of our bodies pulled into a frown.jeremy hardy
You really do have to wonder whether a few years from now we’ll look back at the first decade of the 21st century when food prices spiked, energy prices soared, world population surged, tornados plowed through cities, floods and droughts set records, populations were displaced and governments were threatened by the confluence of it all and ask ourselves: What were we thinking? How did we not panic when the evidence was so obvious that we’d crossed some growth/climate/natural resource/population redlines all at once?thomas l. friedman
I have crossed an ocean I have lost my tongue from the root of the old one a new one has sprung
You don’t let a guy put his hand on your chest, and put his foot on the ball and look into your eyes and tell you a bedtime story. No. sorry. He controlled the ball on his chest, step on it, look, see if someone was in the stands, take a coffee, turn, call his family, no one was answering, left a message, and then thought "Oh, I might cross the ball." He crossed it and they scored.thierry henry
These European White Men, then, with civilization in their blood and in their destiny, crossed the Atlantic and set up a new civilization on a bleak and rock bound coast. It was the White Men who drove north to Alaska and west to California; the men who opened up the tropics and subdued the Arctics; the men who mastered the African Veldts; the men who peopled Australia and seized the gates of the world at Suez, Gibraltar and Panama.ben klassen
A thought crossed his mind: How do you make poor people feel wealthy when wages are stagnant? You give them cheap loans.michael lewis
Take, O boatman, thrice thy fee,—Take, I give it willingly;For, invisible to thee,Spirits twain have crossed with me.
Variant : If we are to believe certain narrow minded people — and what else can we call them? — humanity is confined within a circle of Popilius from which there is no escape, condemned to vegetate upon this globe, never able to venture into interplanetary space! That's not so! We are going to the moon, we shall go to the planets, we shall travel to the stars just as today we go from Liverpool to New York, easily, rapidly, surely, and the oceans of space will be crossed like the seas of the moon.jules verne
We live in the midst of infinite existence; and widely as we can see, and vastly as we have discovered, we have but crossed the threshold, we have but entered the vestibule of the Creator's temple. In this temple there is an everlasting worship of life , an anthem of many choruses, a hymn of incense that goes up forever.
Two hands upon the breast, And labour’s done; Two pale feet crossed in rest, The race is won.dinah maria mulock
"Was the cow crossed?" "No, your worship, it was an open cow."a. p. herbert
Space can be mapped and crossed and occupied without definable limit; but it can never be conquered. When our race has reached its ultimate achievements, and the stars themselves are scattered no more widely than the seed of Adam, even then we shall still be like ants crawling on the face of the Earth. The ants have covered the world, but have they conquered it for what do their countless colonies know of it, or of each other?
He who pays homage to those who are worthy of homage, be they the Enlightened Ones or Their Disciples those who have overcome the host of evil and crossed beyond the stream of sorrow he who pays homage to the Fearless and Peaceful Ones, his merit cannot be measured by any. (Verse 195-196)
Up in the heights of the evening skies I see my City of Cities float In sunset's golden and crimson dyes: I look and a great joy clutches my throat! Plateau of roofs by canyons crossed: windows by thousands fire-furled O gazing, how the heart is lost in the Deepest City in the World.
Over the river they beckon to me, loved ones who've crossed to the farther side. The gleam of their snowy robes I see, but their voices are lost in the dashing tide.N. A. W. Priest
Two hands rise, separating into y?n and yáng Left and right like a y?n and yáng fish Movement springs from extreme stillness, opening then closing Relax the shoulders and sit on the leg as if embracing the moon Two hands form into y?n and yáng palms Two palms crossed over for locking joints Wait for opportunity before moving, watch for changes Create opportunity by following the opponent's force
Here lies Megistias, who died When the Medes crossed Spercheius' tide. A great seer, yet he scorned to save Himself, and shared the Spartans' grave.
The companions of (the Prophet) Muhammad who took part in Badr, told me that their number was that of Saul's (i.e. Talut's) companions who crossed the river (of Jordan) with him and they were over three-hundred-and-ten men. By Allah, none crossed the river with him but a believer. (See Qur'an 2:249)
