To a herd of rams, the ram the herdsman drives each evening into a special enclosure to feed and that becomes twice as fat as the others must seem to be a genius.
But the rams need only cease to suppose that all that happens to them happens solely for the attainment of their sheepish aims; they need only admit that what happens to them may also have purposes beyond their ken, and they will at once perceive a unity and coherence in what happened to the ram that was fattened.
When he allowed the ram to get up it fell to plunging around, trying to rid itself of the rope, and this was the signal which we had risen up with glad shouts to obey.
After leaving the ram tied to the rope, he had wandered at large a while, and then happened to run across a cow.
the golden fleece of the ram which carried Phrixus and Helle away from Athamas and Ino.
As the ram was going out, last of all, heavy with its fleece and with the weight of my crafty self, Polyphemus laid hold of it and said:
As he spoke he drove the ram outside, but when we were a little way out from the cave and yards, I first got from under the ram's belly, and then freed my comrades; as for the sheep, which were very fat, by constantly heading them in the right direction we managed to drive them down to the ship.
As for the ram, my companions agreed that I should have it as an extra share; so I sacrificed it on the sea shore, and burned its thigh bones to Jove, who is the lord of all.
Although he did not hear it, every blow of the ram reverberated simultaneously in the vaults of the church and within it.
All at once, at the moment when they were grouping themselves round the ram for a last effort, each one holding his breath and stiffening his muscles in order to communicate all his force to the decisive blow, a howl more frightful still than that which had burst forth and expired beneath the beam, rose among them.
By compressing cold gas along the galaxy's leading edge, the ram pressure ignited a flame of star birth, boosting the brightness of the galaxy at least sevenfold, Keel's team calculates.
Advantages of this hydraulic ram technology are said to include elimination of compressed air requirements, reducing operator costs; energy efficiency, providing energy savings; allowance for a mid-stroke stop position during ram lifts, shortening cycle time; the hydraulic hopper maintains a constant working pressure to the ram; and the motion of the ram is smoother and its speed can be controlled with the hydraulic power controlling the ingestion of materials, resulting in shorter mixing cycles and higher productivity and batch to batch repetition.
