Famous quotes containing the word arm:

    In his tenth July some instinct
    taught him to arm the waiting wave,
    a giant where its mouth hung open.
    He rode on the lip that buoyed him there
    and buckled him under.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    If your arm is broken, hide it in your sleeve.
    Chinese proverb.

    Man is but a reed, the feeblest one in nature; but he is a thinking reed. The entire universe need not arm itself to crush him—a vapor, a drop of water suffices to kill him. But if the universe were to crush him, man would still be nobler than that which killed him, because he knows that he dies and the advantage which the universe has over him; the universe knows nothing of this.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
