[ Also see Ancestry ]

There is no caste in blood.
      - Sir Edwin Arnold

I think it's liquid aggravation that circulates through his veins, and not regular blood.
      - Charles Dickens

      - Michael le Faucheur

Blood is a juice of rarest quality.
  [Ger., Blut ist ein ganz beondrer Saft.]
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust
         (I, 4, 214)

Some kind of pace may be got out of the eeriest jade by the near prospect of oats; but the thoroughbred has the spur in his blood.
      - James Russell Lowell

Blood alone moves the wheels of history.
      - Benito Mussolini

Blud's thicker than water.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Guy Mannering

Blood is thicker than water.
      - attributed to Commodore Josiah Tattnall,

Hands across the sea,
  Feet on English ground,
    The old blood is bold blood, the wide world round.
      - Byron Webber, Hands Across the Sea
