Famous quotes containing the word beat:

    When a lady of wealth, is seen roaming about in search of cheaper articles, or trying to beat down a shopkeeper, or making a close bargain with those she employs, the impropriety is glaring to all minds. A person of wealth has no occasion to spend time in looking for extra cheap articles; her time could be more profitably employed in distributing to the wants of others. And the practice of beating down tradespeople, is vulgar and degrading, in any one.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800–1878)

    I saw him beat the surges under him,
    And ride upon their backs. He trod the water,
    Whose enmity he flung aside, and breasted
    The surge most swoll’n that met him.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

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