In most cases the name is unpoetical, although the fact is poetical. In the case of Smith, the name is so poetical that it must be an arduous and heroic matter for the man to live up to it. The name of Smith is the name of the one trade that even kings respected; it could claim half the glory of that arma virumque which all epics acclaimed. The spirit of the smithy is so close to the spirit of song that it has mixed in a million poems, and every blacksmith is a harmonious blacksmith.

Even the village children feel that in some dim way the smith is poetic, as the grocer and the cobbler are not poetic, when they feast on the dancing sparks and deafening blows in the cavern of that creative violence. The brute repose of Nature, the passionate cunning of man, the strongest of earthly metals, the weirdest of earthly elements, the unconquerable iron subdued by its only conqueror, the wheel and the ploughshare, the sword and the steam-hammer, the arraying of armies and the whole legend of arms, all these things are written, briefly indeed, but quite legibly, on the visiting-card of Mr. Smith. ~ G.K. Chesterton
Outreaches Arma quotes by G.K. Chesterton
I pursued happiness all my life. When she appeared in my arma, i grew too fond of loneliness and sorrow to understand. I almost chased her away out of fear ~ Snailords
Outreaches Arma quotes by Snailords
For as long as men and women have talked about war, they have talked about it in terms of right and wrong. And for almost as long, some among them have derided such talk, called it a charade, insisted that war lies beyond (or beneath) moral judgment. War is a world apart, where life itself is at stake, where human nature is reduced to its elemental forms, where self-interest and necessity prevail. Here men and women do what they must to save themselves and their communities, and morality and law have no place. Inter arma silent leges: in time of war the law is silent. ~ Michael Walzer
Outreaches Arma quotes by Michael Walzer
To read" actually comes from the Latin reri "to calculate, to think" which is not only the progenitor of "read" but of "reason" as well, both of which hail from the Greek arariskein "to fit." Aside from giving us "reason," arariskein also gives us an unlikely sibling, Latin arma meaning "weapons." It seems that "to fit" the world or to make sense of it requires either reason or arms. ~ Mark Z. Danielewski
Outreaches Arma quotes by Mark Z. Danielewski
Arthur checked himself into a small motel on the outskirts of town, and sat glumly on the bed, which was damp, and flipped through the little information brochure, which was also damp. It said that the planet of NowWhat had been named after the opening words of the first settlers to arrive there after struggling across light years of space to reach the furthest unexplored outreaches of the Galaxy. The main town was called OhWell. ~ Douglas Adams
Outreaches Arma quotes by Douglas Adams
Many think it not only inevitable but entirely proper that liberty give way to security in times of national crisis
that, at the extremes of military exigency, inter arma silent leges. Whatever the general merits of the view that war silences law or modulates its voice, that view has no place in the interpretation and application of a Constitution designed precisely to confront war and, in a manner that accords with democratic principles, to accommodate it. ~ Antonin Scalia
Outreaches Arma quotes by Antonin Scalia
In times of war, the law falls silent.
Silent enim leges inter arma ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
Outreaches Arma quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Silent enim leges inter arma (Laws are silent in times of war). ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
Outreaches Arma quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
The law is silent during war.
[Lat., Silent leges inter arma.] ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
Outreaches Arma quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Arma Virumque Cano (I sing of arms and of man) -The Aeneid ~ Aeneas Middleton
Outreaches Arma quotes by Aeneas Middleton
Ascend beyond the sickly atmosphere
to a higher plane, and purify yourself
by drinking as if it were ambrosia
the fire that fills and fuels Emptiness.
Free from the futile strivings and the cares
which dim existence to a realm of mist,
happy is he who wings an upward way
on mighty pinions to the fields of light;
whose thoughts like larks spontaneously rise
into the morning sky; whose flight, unchecked,
outreaches life and readily comprehends
the language of flowers and of all mute things. ~ Charles Baudelaire
Outreaches Arma quotes by Charles Baudelaire
There are many accounts of prison floors strewn with genitals, breasts, tongues, eyes and ears. Arma virumque cano, and Hitler-Stalin tells us this, among other things: given total power over another, the human being will find that his thoughts turn to torture. ~ Martin Amis
Outreaches Arma quotes by Martin Amis
An army abroad is of little use unless there are prudent counsels at home.
[Lat., Parvi enim sunt foris arma, nisi est consilium domi.] ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
