Famous quotes containing the word beat:

    There was a sound of revelry by night,
    And Belgium’s capital had gathered then
    Her beauty and her chivalry, and bright
    The lamps shone o’er fair women and brave men;
    A thousand hearts beat happily; and when
    Music arose with its voluptuous swell,
    Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spake again,
    And all went merry as a marriage-bell;
    But hush! hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell!
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
    Bible: Hebrew Isaiah 2:4.

    I cannot halt
    The tread, the beat of it, it is my own heart,
    The walls of my room rise, it is still night,
    I have woken again before the word was spelt.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
