Famous quotes containing the word strike:

    Too long we prayed
    God in the thunder,
    wonderful though he be
    and our father;
    too long, too long in the rain,
    cowering lest he strike again.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Talk to me not of blasphemy, man; I’d strike the sun if it insulted me.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    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)
