Palpitate
 
  Palpitating … like a white soul tossed out to eternity with thrills of time upon it.
            —Elizabeth Barrett Browning
  1
  Palpitating at the least emotion like the nostrils of an amorous tigress.
            —Théphile Gautier
  2
  Like the birch-leaf palpitated.
            —Henry W. Longfellow
  3
Palpitant as men’s pulses palpitate
Between the flowing and ebbing tides of fate
That wash their lifelong waifs of weal and woe
Through night and light and twilight to and fro.
            —Algernon Charles Swinburne
