Meets

Famous quotes containing the word meets:

    Jesus said, “When he looketh on her, he hath committed adultery.” But he is an adulterer before he has yet looked on the woman, by the superfluity of animal, and the defect of thought, in his constitution. Who meets him, or who meets her, in the street, sees that they are ripe to be each other’s victim.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But what she meets and what she fears
    Are less than are the downward years,
    Drawn slowly to the foamless weirs
    Of age, were she to lose him.
    Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    For if he meets another cat he will kiss her in kindness.
    For when he takes his prey he plays with it to give it chance.
    Christopher Smart (1722–1771)
