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.
His fine wit Makes such a wound, the knife is lost in it.Percy Bysshe Shelley
The city might be savage, stray dogs might share the streets with grimy urchins whose blank eyes reflected the knowledge that they might soon be covered over, blinded forever, by the same two pennies just begged from some gentleman, and no one in the fuming, fulminous boulevards of trade might know who actually ran Ambergris—or, if anyone ran it at all, but, like a renegade clock, it ran on and wound itself heedless, empowered by the insane weight of its own inertia, the weight of its own citizenry.jeff vandermeer
In love's field was never found A nobler weapon than a wound.Richard Crashaw

That chastity of honour which felt a stain like a wound.Edmund Burke
The house kept its own time, like the old-fashioned grandfather clock in the living room. People who happened by raised the weights, and as long as the weights were wound, the clock continued ticking away. But with people gone and the weights unattended, whole chunks of time were left to collect in deposits of faded life on the floor.haruki murakami
The politician is … trained in the art of inexactitude. His words tend to be blunt or rounded, because if they have a cutting edge they may later return to wound him.edward r. murrow
I will repeat then, Sir, that it is not this treaty, it is the Earl of Shelburne alone whom the movers of this question are desirous to wound. This is the object which has raised this storm of faction; this is the aim of the unnatural coalition to which I have alluded. If, however, the baneful alliance is not already formed, if this ill-omened marriage is not already solemnized, I know a just and lawful impediment, and, in the name of the public safety, I here forbid the banns.
But from the hoop's bewitching round, Her very shoe has power to wound.edward moore

I bring you to the dead body of Christ. I ask you to look at the wounds in His hands and feet, and the wound in His side. And I ask you, " Will you not be reconciled? "
Her rash hand in evil hour Forth reaching to the fruit, she pluck'd, she eat; Earth felt the wound, and Nature from her seat Sighing through all her works gave signs of woe That all was lost.john milton
Better to die ten thousand deaths, Than wound my honour.joseph addison
You took away the life of my precious Onee-chan...and since that day I have carried a wound of the heart that has never healed...no, you were never loved!! ...and now, I beg you...please die along with me.
'Old love lies deep,' you said. Deeper shall be the wound between your legs.
The Natural Clock-work by the mighty ONE wound up at first, and ever since have gone.
The fittest for my wound; Who best the gentle Passions knows to move; Ovid , the soft Philosopher of Love: His Love Epistles for my Friends I chose; For there I found the Kindred of my Woes.
