Hands

Famous quotes containing the word hands:

    One of the duties which devolve upon women in the present interesting crisis, is to prepare themselves for more extensive usefulness, by making use of those religious and literary privileges and advantages that are within their reach, if they will only stretch out their hands and possess them.
    Sarah M. Grimke (1792–1873)

    The ball loved Flick.
    I saw him rack up thirty-eight or forty
    In one home game. His hands were like wild birds.
    John Updike (b. 1932)

    I am given up by traitors,
    I talk wildly, I have lost my wits, I and nobody else am the greatest traitor,
    I went myself first to the headland, my own hands carried me there.

    You villain touch! what are you doing? my breath is tight in its throat,
    Unclench your floodgates, you are too much for me.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
