The more he is beaten, the better he’ll be.
  Beaten as a road.

  Beaten like a Turco that pawns his musket.
  Beats like a maniac drummer in mid-battle.
            —T. Buchanan Read
                Each falling hoof
Beat like a flail beneath the thresher’s roof.
            —Bayard Taylor
  Beat, like the pulse, perpetual.
