Famous quotes containing the word beats:

    He turns agen and drives the noisy crowd
    And beats the dogs in noises loud.
    He drives away and beats them every one,
    And then they loose them all and set them on.
    He falls as dead and kicked by boys and men,
    Then starts and grins and drives the crowd agen;
    Till kicked and torn and beaten out he lies
    And leaves his hold and cackles, groans, and dies.
    John Clare (1793–1864)

    That’s right, there is no reflection. The flesh is only an illusion, and the heart beats only when it is drunk with blood.
    Pat Fielder, and Paul Landres. Dracula (Francis Lederer)

    The measured blood beats out the year’s delay.
    Louise Bogan (1897–1970)
