Strike

Famous quotes containing the word strike:

    And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my fingers upon thee!
    Quentin Tarantino, U.S. screenwriter and director, and Roger Avary. Jules (Samuel Jackson)

    In another’s sentences the thought, though it may be immortal, is as it were embalmed, and does not strike you, but here it is so freshly living, even the body of it not having passed through the ordeal of death, that it stirs in the very extremities, and the smallest particles and pronouns are all alive with it. It is not simply dictionary it, yours or mine, but IT.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Whosoever, in writing a modern history, shall follow truth too near the heels, it may haply strike out his teeth.
    Sir Walter Raleigh (1552–1618)
