Excessively precise economic analysis can lead to assessing everything in terms of its easily measurable melt value – the value that thieves get from stealing copper wiring from isolated houses, that vandals got from tearing down Greek temples for the lead joints holding the marble blocks together, that shortsighted timber companies get from liquidating their forests. The standard to insist on is live value. What is something worth when it's working?
Butter not only wouldn’t melt in this mouth, it wouldn’t go in; one runs away, an urchin in the gutter and glad to be, murmuring: “The Queen of Spain has no legs.” ...One’s eyes widen; one sits the poet down in the porch swing, starts to go off to get her a glass of lemonade, and sees her metamorphosed before one’s eyes into a new Critique of Practical Reason... feminine gender...Randall Jarrell
Now Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woodsAnd day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.william allingham
"In love affairs, there is no mediator like a merry, simple-hearted child - ever ready to cement divided hearts, to span the unfriendly gulf of custom, to melt the ice of cold reserve, and overthrow the separating walls of dread formality and pride."anne brontë
She looketh as butter would not melt in her mouth.john heywood
Lo these were they, whose souls the Furies steel'd,And curs'd with hearts unknowing how to yield.Thus unlamented pass the proud away,The gaze of fools, and pageant of a day!So perish all, whose breast ne'er learn'd to glowFor others' good, or melt at others' woe.Alexander Pope
All hearts confess the saints elect,Who, twain in faith, in love agree,And melt not in an acid sectThe Christian pearl of charity!john greenleaf whittier
Know ye the land where the cypress and myrtle Are emblems of deeds that are done in their clime? Where the rage of the vulture, the love of the turtle, Now melt into sorrow, now madden to crime!lord byron
What sorrow was, thou bad'st her know, And from her own she learned to melt at others' woe.thomas gray

Some day I'll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemondrops Away above the chimney tops, That's where you'll find me. Somewhere over the rainbow Bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow, Why then, oh why can't I?yip harburg
Consciousness even in my sleep changes primary colors. The features of my face melt like a wax doll in the fire. And who can consent to see in the mirror the mere face of man?czesław miłosz
Now I know how Joan of Arc felt, As the flames rose to her Roman nose And her Walkman started to melt...morrissey
Many, perhaps most, very learned people prefer the company of their books to sitting in a crowd listening to history and art being mangled; furthermore, it is unlikely that the venerable scholars will stand up afterward to declare, “This lecture was a load of crap.” The more profound a professor’s distaste with the proceedings, the more likely he is to melt away at the end of the talk.camille paglia
... contrary to what many believed, my father was kind and tenderhearted, especially towards his family. His forbidding sternness seemed to melt into love, kindness, and easy familiarity when he was with us. Especially with me, his acknowledged successor to the throne, he would play lightheartedly. When we were alone together, he would sing me little songs; I don't remember his ever doing this in front of others, but when only the two of us were there, he would often sing to me.muhammad reza pahlavi
All worldly shapes shall melt in gloom, The sun himself must die, Before this mortal shall assume Its immortality.

Yet, taught by time, my heart has learned to glow for other's good, and melt at other's woe.homer
So perish all whose breast ne'er learned to glow For other's good or melt at other's woe.Alexander Pope

The soft blue sky did never melt Into his heart; he never felt The witching of the soft blue sky!william wordsworth
Some day I'll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemondrops Away above the chimney tops, That's where you'll find me. Somewhere over the rainbow Bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow, Why then, oh why can't I?
Do you think when two representatives holding diametrically opposing views get together and shake hands, the contradictions between our systems will simply melt away? What kind of a daydream is that?
See, here the beatitude is so simple and so without mode that therein all essential gazing, inclination and distinction of creatures pass away. For all spirits thus raised up melt away and are annihilated by reason of enjoyment in God’s essence, which is the superessence of all essence. There they fall away from themselves and are lost in a bottomless unknowing.
