Famous quotes containing the word arms:

    Shall the Spring dawn, and she still clad in smiles,
    And with an unscathed brow,
    Rest in the strong arms of her palm-crowned isles,
    As fair and free as now?

    We know not; in the temple of the Fates
    God has inscribed her doom;
    And, all untroubled in her faith, she waits
    The triumph or the tomb.
    Henry Timrod (1828–1867)

    Because just as arms have no force outside if there is no counsel within a house, study is vain and counsel useless that is not put to virtuous effect when the time calls.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why,
    I have forgotten, and what arms have lain
    Under my head till morning; out the rain
    Is full of ghosts tonight,
    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
