Usage examples for Paralyzing
In Tyrrell, it was passion acting on a callous mind but a broken frame- his hand trembled violently- his voice faltered- he could scarcely command the muscles which enabled him to speak; but there was no fiery start- no indignant burst- no flashing forth of the soul; in him, it was the body overcoming and paralyzing the mind. – Pelham, Complete by Edward Bulwer-Lytton Last Updated: March 16, 2009
