Famous quotes containing the word held:

    I mind how once we lay such a transparent summer morning,
    How you settled your head athwart my hips and gently turn’d over
    upon me,
    And parted the shirt from my bosom-bone, and plunged your tongue to my bare-stript heart,
    And reach’d till you felt my beard, and reach’d till you held my
    feet.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    The wind had seized the tree and ha, and ha,
    It held the shivering, the shaken limbs,
    Then bathed its body in the leaping lake.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    [The] elderly and timid single gentleman in Paris ... never drove down the Champs Elysees without expecting an accident, and commonly witnessing one; or found himself in the neighborhood of an official without calculating the chances of a bomb. So long as the rates of progress held good, these bombs would double in force and number every ten years.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)
