Elevated Blood

Famous quotes containing the words elevated and/or blood:

    One of the surest evidences of an elevated taste is the power of enjoying works of impassioned terrorism, in poetry, and painting. The man who can look at impassioned subjects of terror with a feeling of exultation may be certain he has an elevated taste.
    Benjamin Haydon (1786–1846)

    No sleep. The sultriness pervades the air
    And binds the brain—a dense oppression, such
    As tawny tigers feel in matted shades,
    Vexing their blood and making apt for ravage.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
