Famous quotes containing the word bends:

    A wet sheet and a flowing sea,
    A wind that follows fast
    And fills the white and rustling sail
    And bends the gallant mast;
    Allan Cunningham (1784–1842)

    Silent is the house: all are laid asleep:
    One alone looks out o’er the snow-wreaths deep,
    Watching every cloud, dreading every breeze
    That whirls the ‘wildering drift, and bends the groaning trees.
    Emily Brontë (1818–1848)

    The doctor will take you now. He is burly and clean;
    Listening, like lover or worshiper, bends at your heart.
    Robert Penn Warren (1905–1989)
