I drew this gallant head of war, And cull'd these fiery spirits from the world, To outlook conquest and to win renown Even in the jaws of danger and of death.
Bazarov drew himself up haughtily. "I don't adopt any one's ideas; I have my own."Ivan Turgenev
A man of vitality and vehemence, Mujib became the political Gandhi of the Bengalis, symbolizing their hopes and voicing their grievances. Not even Pakistan's founder, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, drew the million-strong throngs that Mujib has attracted in Dacca. Nor, for that matter, has any subcontinent politician since Gandhi's day spent so much time behind bars for his political beliefs.sheikh mujibur rahman
"When Brzezinski says we lured the Russians into an 'Afghan trap' - by supporting the Mujahadeen and that was a great achievement, we've now destroyed Afghanistan and set up a terrorist network, a wonderful achievement - in the same book, I said we have to be cautious about this because he may be boasting. Unless he gives us some evidence, the fact that he says later, 'Yes, we drew them into an Afghan trap' doesn't prove it."zbigniew brzezinski
Shelley, whose talents would otherwise have made him eligible, was an outcast from the first ... They always knew where to draw the line and they drew it, emphatically, at Shelley. I was informed that Byron could be forgiven because, though he had sinned, he had been led into sin by the unfortunate circumstances of his youth, and had always been haunted by remorse, but that for Shelley's moral character there was nothing to be said since he acted on principle and therefore he could not be worth reading.Percy Bysshe Shelley
They drew near, and observing that they were very comfortable standing before the warm fire, they put on logs and, while thus keeping it alive, brought up other people to it, showing them by signs how much comfort they got from it. In that gathering of men, at a time when utterance of sound was purely individual, from daily habits they fixed upon articulate words just as these had happened to come; then, from indicating by name things in common use, the result was that in this chance way they began to talk, and thus originated conversation with one another.vitruvius
"Did the rapid-response teams go in?" Murray asked. "Why don't they just take over?" "They didn't go in at all," drew said. "They called me first and I waved them off. You think it's a bad situation now, try bringing in eight P90-toting goons wearing biosuits and watch the press jizz all over themselves."
Writers who drew, they all seemed to draw the same way. They managed to keep that childlike creativity in their line.Al Hirschfeld
The last breath I drew in he wished might be through a pipe and exhaled in a pun.Charles Lamb
And then I asked him with my eyes to ask again (yes),And then he asked me would I (yes, yes).I put my arms around him (yes),And drew him down to me so he could feel my breasts,And his heart was going like mad.Yes, I said yes, I will, yes.amber (pop star)
I think the title page I drew for Salomé was after all "impossible". You see booksellers couldn't stick it up in their windows.aubrey beardsley
As Christ's ministry drew to its close, its severity and its gentleness both increased; its severity to the class from whom it never turned away. Side by side through all His manifestations of Himself, there were the two aspects: "He showed Himself froward " (if I may quote the word) to the self-righteous and the Pharisee; and He bent with more than a woman's tenderness of 'yearning love over the darkness and sinfulness, which in its great darkness dimly knew itself blind, and in its sinfulness stretched out a lame hand of faith, and groped after a Divine deliverer.alexander maclaren
It was a deep true thought which the old painters had, when they drew John as likest to his Lord. Love makes us like.alexander maclaren
In the beginning I drew and painted from nature in order to know her. Then later, only to fall under her spell. And today, to let her mirror my thoughts and feelings.william baziotes
I put my pencil upon the paper, doubtfully, and drew little lines, considering my theme. But I would not long hesitate in this manner, for I knew that all creation must be chaos first, and then gestures in the void before it can cast out the completed thing.hilaire belloc
I remember that she made me laugh more than I liked; for I was, at that time, an eager scholar of ethics , and had tasted the sweets of solitude and stoicism , and I found something profane in the hours of amusing gossip into which she drew me...margaret fuller
The New World's sons from England's breast we drew Such milk as bids remember whence we came, Proud of her past wherefrom our future grew, This window we inscribe with Raleigh's fame.
With the exception of the Ojapali (this is one of the pre-Vaishnav dance forms that the Vaishnav culture drew from) inspired segments, which predate the establishment of Sattras, the dance form of Sattriya is mostly culled out of the Ankiya Bhaona tradition that has a distinct vernacular vocabulary for theatrical communication and a sense of regional identity.
Now deep in ocean sunk the lamp of light, and drew behind the cloudy vale of night.
This is the Jew that Shakespeare drew.
