Famous quotes containing the words palsy, facial and/or nerve:

    All conservatives are such from personal defects. They have been effeminated by position or nature, born halt and blind, through luxury of their parents, and can only, like invalids, act on the defensive. But strong natures, backwoodsmen, New Hampshire giants, Napoleons, Burkes, Broughams, Websters, Kossuths, are inevitable patriots, until their life ebbs, and their defects and gout, palsy and money, warp them.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    You must call up every strength you own
    And you can rip off the whole facial mask.
    William Dewitt Snodgrass (b. 1926)

    There must be some nerve and heroism in our love, as of a winter morning.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
