Famous quotes containing the words bodies and/or joint:

    If oxen and horses and lions had hands and were able to draw with their hands and do the same things as men, horses would draw the shapes of gods to look like horses and oxen would draw them to look like oxen, and each would make the gods bodies have the same shape as they themselves had.
    Xenophanes (c. 570–478 B.C.)

    Let me approach at least, and touch thy hand.
    [Samson:] Not for thy life, lest fierce remembrance wake
    My sudden rage to tear thee joint by joint.
    At distance I forgive thee, go with that;
    Bewail thy falsehood, and the pious works
    It hath brought forth to make thee memorable
    Among illustrious women, faithful wives:
    Cherish thy hast’n’d widowhood with the gold
    Of Matrimonial treason: so farewel.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
