Beats

Famous quotes containing the word beats:

    A great black presence beats its wings in wrath.
    Above the boneyard burn its golden eyes.
    Some small grey fur is pulsing in its grip.
    Anthony Hecht (b. 1923)

    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. Paul Landres. Dracula (Francis Lederer)

    Watching fifteen seconds of nasal passages unblocking sure beats watching thirty seconds.
    Barbara Lippert, U.S. advertising critic. As quoted in Newsweek magazine, p. 8 (June 16, 1986)
