It may seem as if we are all too familiar with the red liquid that runs through our bodies, keeping us alive. This very thing we call blood is something more than just an indication that we bleed. It can carry way more than that. It keeps connections, traverses lineage, breaks through wars, and even build nations.
Blood is a powerful thing. It can also mean different things to different people. While the red it possesses is all haunting to us, It can come in many forms. Blood can mean anything. We’ve created an ultimate list of quotes about blood to show how much ideas have gotten from it:

If what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honor him and make whatever the man did live forever.The Ultimate Warrior
The course of blood also runs in inspiration. It makes the blood feel more motivated.
By any sane definition of success, if you wake up in a pool of blood and nobody has shot you, you are not successful.Arianna Huffington
A part of success will always include your sacrifice. No one is ever truly successful without it.
All is race; there is no other truth ,and every race must fall, which carelessly suffers its blood to become mixed.Benjamin Disraeli
And in the end, blood is powerful, whether it be considered pure or mixed. It is the only way to preserve it. One must accept differences to survive.
I think they must mix blood, otherwise the human race is bound to degenerate. Mixing blood is marvelous. It makes strong and intelligent men. It takes away tired spirits.Josephine Baker
Accepting blood is also accepting people. So long as we do not discriminate, we can live harmoniously. It may even be the key to a longer and healthier future.
Blood is anything we can make it off. We may not even realize it’s part of our daily lives. We do not see it most of the time, but when we do, there’s this pang of emotion that stirs inside us. Whether it be a good or bad feeling, its presence has always been something we don’t often mind until it appears.
Blood will continue to run for as long as humanity lives.
