Famous quotes containing the words running with, demon and/or running:

    If the barricades went up in our streets and the poor became masters, I think the priests would escape, I fear the gentlemen would; but I believe the gutters would simply be running with the blood of philanthropists.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Some on commission, some for the love of learning, Some because they have nothing better to do Or because they hope these walls of books will deaden The drumming of the demon in their ears.
    Louis MacNeice (1907–1963)

    Do but consider this small dust, here running in the glass,
    By atoms moved.
    Could you believe that this the body was
    Of one that loved?
    And in his mistress’ flame playing like a fly,
    Turned to cinders by her eye?
    Yes, and in death as life unblest,
    To have’t expressed,
    Even ashes of lovers find no rest.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
