My arms about you, cast
Into one word my love all unabated!

His God, for whom he fights, intends to lead thee
Into the land, which thou wast born for -

Lead us to Philippi's lord; Let us conquer him, or die!"
"Ode To Eloquence " by Henry Carey
But Ocean coils and heaves in vain,
Bound in the subtle moonbeam's chain;
And love and hope do but obey
Some cold, capricious planet's ray,
Which lights and leads the tide it charms
To Death's dark caves and icy arms.
"The Philosopher To His Love" by Oliver Wendell Holmes
If she'd been a crack liner she'd 'ave gone down like stone,

But we pumped 'er into port just before the day was breakin'!

Then she put her arms around my neck and sobbed and cried and said:
"Bless the Lord!--I knew that He would help us through."
"The Pioneer" by Hanford Lennox Gordon

In science:

However, if this evolution is not too fast, it should not present a problem for our flux-tube manifold theory where the arm is constituted by the whole flow of material guided by the manifolds2 and will only lead to a change of the manifold properties with time.
Manifold-driven spirals in N-body barred galaxy simulations
In the early stages of accretion, when the disk is massive, gravitational instabilities dominate and can lead to spiral arm formation or disk fragmentation—which can in turn lead to binary or giant planet formation.
Millimetre Science with the Upgraded Australia Telescope
Here ΓL, ΓR are the dot-lead couplings (on the left and right side respectively); tref is the transmission amplitude through the reference arm alone); Gref is the retarded Green function of the coupled dot and ω is the incident’s electron energy measured from the Fermi energy.
Quantum Interferometry with Electrons: Outstanding Challenges
In theory at least, determining whether spiral arms are leading or trailing ought to be simple enough. A longslit spectrum across the major axis of the inclined galactic disk will give an unambiguous indication of which side of the galaxy is approaching, and which side is receding from, us.

Knowing which side of the disk is the near side to us and which side is farther away will then tell us immediately whether the arms are trailing or leading the rotation.

However, since two of the four processes leading to a coincidence detection (each photon can choose either the short or the long arm of the interferometers) are indistinguishable, fringes can be observed in the rate of coincidence detections between two detectors belonging to different interferometers.
Long-distance Bell-type tests using energy-time entangled photons
However, different pulse broadening in the intereferometer arms, increasing with increasing arm-length difference, leads to a smaller visibility as well.

The halo component plot (Fig.5b) shows several differences from the disc component plot, including a much less conspicuous stream at the the position of the MS and a less well-defined leading arm.
