Pulses

Famous quotes containing the word pulses:

    Along the iron veins that traverse the frame of our country, beat and flow the fiery pulses of its exertion, hotter and faster every hour. All vitality is concentrated through those throbbing arteries into the central cities; the country is passed over like a green sea by narrow bridges, and we are thrown back in continually closer crowds on the city gates.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    I knew that I had seen, had seen at last
    That girl my unremembering nights hold fast
    Or else my dreams that fly
    If I should rub an eye,
    And yet in flying fling into my meat
    A crazy juice that makes the pulses beat....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    But the heart refuses to be imprisoned; in its first and narrowest pulses it already tends outward with a vast force and to immense and innumerable expansions.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
