Famous quotes containing the word strike:

    When we walk the streets at night in safety, it does not strike us that this might be otherwise. This habit of feeling safe has become second nature, and we do not reflect on just how this is due solely to the working of special institutions. Commonplace thinking often has the impression that force holds the state together, but in fact its only bond is the fundamental sense of order which everybody possesses.
    Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

    Is this then a touch? quivering me to a new identity,
    Flames and ether making a rush for my veins,
    Treacherous tip of me reaching and crowding to help them,
    My flesh and blood playing out lightning to strike what is hardly
    different from myself,
    On all sides prurient provokers stiffening my limbs,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    if thou slip thy troth and do not come at all.
    As minutes in the clock do strike so call for death I shall:
    To please both thy false heart, and rid myself from woe,
    That rather had to die in troth than live forsaken so.
    —Unknown. The Lady Prayeth the Return of Her Lover Abiding on the Seas (l. 19–22)
