Famous quotes containing the word beating:

    To whatsoever upright mind, to whatsoever beating heart I speak, to you it is committed to educate men. By simple living, by an illimitable soul, you inspire, you correct, you instruct, you raise, you embellish all. By your own act you teach the beholder how to do the practicable. According to the depth from which you draw your life, such is the depth not only of your strenuous effort, but of your manners and presence.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Women can stand a beating except when it is with their own weapons.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    a great space
    Of white and pewter lights, and a din like silversmiths
    Beating and beating at an intractable metal.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
