Elevated Blood

Famous quotes containing the words elevated and/or blood:

    ‘Tis said that courage is common, but the immense esteem in which it is held proves it to be rare. Animal resistance, the instinct of the male animal when cornered, is no doubt common; but the pure article, courage with eyes, courage with conduct, self-possession at the cannon’s mouth, cheerfulness in lonely adherence to the right, is the endowment of elevated characters.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Her skin was white as leprosy,
    The nightmare Life-in-Death was she,
    Who thicks man’s blood with cold.
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
