Famous quotes containing the word beat:

    Men are the managers of the affairs of women
    for that God has preferred in bounty
    one of them over another, and for that
    they have expended of their property.
    Righteous women are therefore obedient,
    guarding the secret for God’s guarding.
    And those you fear may be rebellious
    admonish; banish them to their couches,
    and beat them.
    Qur’An. Women 4:38, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)

    Good dogs do not bite chickens; good husbands do not beat their wives.
    Chinese proverb.

    I told you, sir, they were red-hot with drinking;
    So full of valour that they smote the air,
    For breathing in their faces, beat the ground
    For kissing of their feet.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
