Famous quotes containing the word arteries:

    As the arteries grow hard, the heart grows soft.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    there’s a kind of lust feeds on itself
    Unspoken to, unspeaking; subterranean
    As a black river full of eyeless fish
    Heavy with spawn; with a passion for time
    Longer than the arteries of a cave.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    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)
