Famous quotes containing the words possession and/or arms:

    When you have come into the land that the LORD your God is giving you, and have taken possession of it and settled in it, and you say, “I will set a king over me, like all the nations that are around me,” you may indeed set over you a king whom the LORD your God will choose. One of your own community you may set as king over you; you are not permitted to put a foreigner over you, who is not of your own community.
    Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 17:14,15.

    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)
