Famous quotes containing the words nerve and/or root:

    our nerve filaments twitch with its presence
    day and night,
    nothing we say has not the husky phlegm of it in the saying,
    nothing we do has the quickness, the sureness,
    the deep intelligence living at peace would have.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    A radical generally meant a man who thought he could somehow pull up the root without affecting the flower. A conservative generally meant a man who wanted to conserve everything except his own reason for conserving anything.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)
