HAND
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 2 of 2
[ Also see Deeds Mind Welcome ]

I take thy hand, this hand,
  As soft as dove's down, and as white as it;
    Or Ethiopian's tooth, or the fann'd snow,
      That's bolted by the northern blast twice o'er.
      - William Shakespeare

The white wonder of Juliet's hands.
      - William Shakespeare

There is no better sign of a brave mind than a hard hand.
      - William Shakespeare

Here's the smell of the blood still. All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Lady Macbeth at V, i)

They may seize
  On the white wonder of dear Juliet's hand
    And steal immortal blessing from her lips,
      Who, even in pure and vestal modesty,
        Still blush, as thinking their own kisses sin;
          But Romeo may not, he is banished.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Romeo at III, iii)

Her eyes, her hair, her cheek, her gait, her voice;
  Handlest in thy discourse, O, that her hand,
    In whose comparison all whites are ink,
      Writing their own reproach; to whose soft seizure
        The cygnet's down is harsh, and spirit of sense
          Hard as the palm of ploughman.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The History of Troilus and Cressida
         (Troilus at I, i)

Without the bed her other fair hand was,
  On the green coverlet; whose perfect white
    Showed like an April daisy on the grass,
      With pearly sweat resembling dew of night.
      - William Shakespeare, The Rape of Lucrece
         (l. 393)

The hand that gives, gathers.
      - Eugene Sue (Marie Joseph Eugene Sue)

God looks at pure, not full, hands.
  [Lat., Puras deus non plenas adspicit manus.]
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

The mind's only perfect vassal.
      - Henry Theodore Tuckerman

My right hand is to me as a god.
  [Lat., Dextra mihi Deus.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        The Aeneid (X, 773)

As expressive as the face.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis
