Give them great meals of beef and iron and steel, they will eat like wolves and fight like devils.
They used language concentrating emotion, detail and image until theyarrived at a form of dew-like steel.Richard Brautigan
A busy man who can keep up a daily journal resembles a steel person preparing for bed with the shades up? When such a man publishes parts of his journal, the reader must conclude he always knew the lights were on.
The merciless Macdonwald (Worthy to be a rebel, for, to that, The multiplying villainies of nature Do swarm upon him) from the Western Isles Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied; And Fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling, Showed like a rebel's whore: but all's too weak: For brave Macbeth (well he deserves that name) Disdaining Fortune, with his brandish'd steel, Which smoked with bloody execution, Like valour's minion, Carv'd out his passage.
In pulp fiction it is a rigid convention that the hero’s shoulders and the heroine’s balcon constantly threaten to burst their bonds, a possibility which keeps the audience in a state of tense expectancy. Unfortunately for the fans, however, recent tests reveal that the wisp of chiffon which stands between the publisher and the postal laws has the tensile strength of drop-forged steel.s. j. perelman
Time will rust the sharpest sword, Time will consume the strongest cord; That which molders hemp and steel, Mortal arm and nerve must feel.walter scott
A sledgehammer breaks glass but forges steel.
To tell the truth, the chariot was an astonishing sight to behold, because I had polished the steel of my flying house so carefully that it reflected the sunlight on all sides. It was so bright and dazzling that I thought, myself, that I had been carried away in a chariot of fire.cyrano de bergerac
As Gloria Steinem said about Ginger Rogers: She was doing everything Fred Astaire was doing, just doing it backwards in high heels. Well, Southern women are doing and enduring what other women have to do and endure, but (at least until recently) they had to do it in heels and hats and white gloves and makeup and a sweet smile, with maybe a glass of bourbon and a cigarette to get them through the magnolia part of being a steel magnolia.michael malone

'I thought', said Nye , 'that you were a Yorkshireman but your Dad has been telling me all about Manchester. Where were you born, boy?' With a Yorkshireman's natural pride, I said, thinking of Sheffield's steel, 'Yorkshiremen are not born; they are forged.' 'Forged were you?' said Nye in that musical Welsh lilt of his, 'I always thought there was something counterfeit about you!'harold wilson
O my brother Futurists ! All of you, look at yourselves!.. ..In the name of that Human Pride we so adore, I proclaim that the hour is nigh when men with broad temples and steel chins will give birth magnificently, with a single trust of their bulging will, to giants with flawless gestures.filippo tommaso marinetti
While some multimillionaires started in poverty, most did not. A study of the origins of 303 textile, railroad and steel executives of the 1870s showed that 90 percent came from middle- or upper-class families. The Horatio Alger stories of "rags to riches" were true for a few men, but mostly a myth, and a useful myth for control.howard zinn
Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America . These acts shattered steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.
O God of battles! steel my soldiers' hearts; Possess them not with fear; take from them now The sense of reckoning, if the opposèd numbers Pluck their hearts from them.william shakespeare
Keen were his pangs, but keener far to feel, He nursed the pinion, which impell'd the steel.lord byron
I never saw any one like him. He is steel! He would go through you like a sword !
I'm armed with more than complete steel, The justice of my quarrel.Christopher Marlowe
My heart Is true as steel.
