Pulses

Famous quotes containing the word pulses:

    Let the man stand on his feet. Let religion cease to be occasional; and the pulses of thought that go to the borders of the universe, let them proceed from the bosom of the Household.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    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)
