Famous quotes containing the word beats:

    Mind in its purest play is like some bat
    That beats about in caverns all alone,
    Contriving by a kind of senseless wit
    Not to conclude against a wall of stone.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)

    That’s right, there is no reflection. The flesh is only an illusion, and the heart beats only when it is drunk with blood.
    Pat Fielder, and Paul Landres. Dracula (Francis Lederer)

    Grant me an old man’s frenzy.
    Myself must I remake
    Till I am Timon and Lear
    Or that William Blake
    Who beats upon the wall
    Till truth obeyed his call....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
