Famous quotes containing the words foot and/or veins:
“For forty days, for forty nights
Jesus put one foot in front of the other
and the man he carried,
if it was a man,
became heavier and heavier.”

Have stood and sweated hot and cold,
And through their veins in ice and fire
Fear contended with desire.”
