Famous quotes containing the words arms, discovery and/or iraqi:

    And to your more bewitching, see the proud,
    Plump bed bear up, and swelling like a cloud,
    Tempting the two too modest; can
    Ye see it brustle like a swan,
    And you be cold
    To meet it when it woos and seems to fold
    The arms to hug you? Throw, throw
    Yourselves into the mighty overflow
    Of that white pride, and drown
    The night with you in floods of down.
    Robert Herrick (1591–1674)

    Next to the striking of fire and the discovery of the wheel, the greatest triumph of what we call civilization was the domestication of the human male.
