Religion as a vital issue is dead except on paper, and whatever beauty-baiting the future may witness will be the work of greed and trade, and not of honest cosmos-facing.H.P. Lovecraft Baiting Sayings By H.P. Lovecraft: Religion as a vital issue is dead except on paper, and whatever beauty-baiting the future
Fellow Englishman. Ladies and gentleman. You gather here today to see a live man become a dead one, and for my part you shall have satisfaction. But I would offer you a moral lesson to commemorate my passing; otherwise it might as well be bull baiting you witness here today. However I shall not deliver a warning that crime does not pay, for it pays very well; nor that a life of drink and debauchery leads inevitably to destruction, for I haven't led such a life. Here's what this little life of mine has taught me. There is only one reason to live, and there is only one reason to die, and that is love. If you have not known love, you have not lived. But if, when death comes to take your soul, you have loved someone dearly, then your soul is safe; for it lives in the bosom of your sweetheart, and death can make no claim upon it. That is all I know, and it is enough. Farewell.Ben Tripp Baiting Sayings By Ben Tripp: Fellow Englishman. Ladies and gentleman. You gather here today to see a live man become

Reactionary conservatives are smiling through the racial apocalypse. To them, race baiting is a joke, as 'humorist' Rush Limbaugh will tell you when he's calling Mexicans 'stupid.' Or it's a matter of semantics when they claim that Sonia Sotomayor is a 'racialist' which, far as I can tell, is the smooth jazz version of being a racist.John Ridley Baiting Sayings By John Ridley: Reactionary conservatives are smiling through the racial apocalypse. To them, race baiting is a joke,
Bloody hell, what did he hit me with? An anvil?"
"His fist."
"You should put that fool in a bear-baiting pit. You'd make a fortune." Dougal struggled to rise.
Sophia helped him on one side, Mary slipping under his other arm.
The wind swirled a bit harder, sending dust into the air.
"Heavens!" Mary said, glancing over their heads at the sky. "That's the third thunderhead as has passed this way today."
Sophia turned. A huge bank of thunderclouds hung overhead, roiling as if alive.
"We should get inside," she said uneasily.
Dougal didn't even glance at the clouds as he held a hand over his bruised eye and cheek. "Bloody hell, I can barely see.
Karen Hawkins Baiting Sayings By Karen Hawkins: Bloody hell, what did he hit me with? An anvil?""His fist.""You should put that fool

Oh Sleep, the certain knot of peace, the baiting-place of wit, the balm
Yyou forgive me for baiting him, don't you baby?" He asked Ally.

Suzanne Wright Baiting Sayings By Suzanne Wright: Yyou forgive me for baiting him, don't you baby?" He asked Ally. Not really, but
She had joined Amnesty International and Greenpeace and the Green Party. She said patriarchy and hegemony and neo-liberalism, several times a day. She put streaks of blue in her hair and enjoyed baiting her teachers by wearing mascara: but Miss, you're wearing makeup. But Sir, aren't you just inducting us into a world more interested in policing women's sexuality than giving us knowledge?Sarah Moss Baiting Sayings By Sarah Moss: She had joined Amnesty International and Greenpeace and the Green Party. She said patriarchy and

Rowling: But it's not so much having to repair the damage, it's more the attitude behind

Fascists are flourishing politically in France and Italy, and now comes the murder of Pim Fortuyn, a populist politician who might have done well enough in the forthcoming Dutch elections to hold the balance of power in that country's parliament. But it is the widespread Jew-baiting that best reveals that Europeans are evidently incapable of learning from their history. France is the outright prizewinner where anti-Semitism is concerned.David Pryce-Jones Baiting Sayings By David Pryce-Jones: Fascists are flourishing politically in France and Italy, and now comes the murder of Pim
Kolya was a braggart, a know-it-all, a Jew-baiting Cossack, but his confidence was so pure and complete it no longer seemed like arrogance, just the mark of a man who had accepted his own heroic destiny.David Benioff Baiting Sayings By David Benioff: Kolya was a braggart, a know-it-all, a Jew-baiting Cossack, but his confidence was so pure
The United States is baiting China and Russia, and the final nail in the coffin will be Iran, which is, of course, the main target of Israel. We have allowed China to increase their military strength and Russia to recover from Sovietization, to give them a false sense of bravado, this will create an all together faster demise for them. We're like the sharp shooter daring the noob to pick up the gun, and when they try, it's bang bang. The coming war will be so severe that only one superpower can win, and that's us folks. This is why the EU is in such a hurry to form a complete superstate because they know what is coming, and to survive, Europe will have to be one whole cohesive state. Their urgency tells me that they know full well that the big showdown is upon us. O how I have dreamed of this delightful moment.Henry Kissinger Baiting Sayings By Henry Kissinger: The United States is baiting China and Russia, and the final nail in the coffin
Like Elizabeth, all her subjects were fond of the savage pastime of bear and bull baiting. It cannot be denied that this people had a taste for blood, took delight in brutal encounters, and drew the sword and swung the cudgel with great promptitude; nor were they fastidious in the matter of public executions. Kiechel says that when the criminal was driven in the cart under the gallows, and left hanging by the neck as the cart moved from under him, his friends and acquaintances pulled at his legs in order that he might be strangled the sooner.William Shakespeare Baiting Sayings By William Shakespeare: Like Elizabeth, all her subjects were fond of the savage pastime of bear and bull
His loss. I know a hell of a lot more about headstrong teenage girls than he does."
Colin gave her his most quelling look. "You're baiting him again."
Ryan studied first one of them and then the other. "What's going on with you two?"
"Nothing."
Unfortunately, they spoke together, automatically making them look like liars. Sugar Beth recovered first and handled the situation in her own way. "Relax, Ryan. Colin's done his best to get rid of me, but I'm blackmailing him with some unsavory facts I've unearthed about his past, which may or may not involve the ritual deaths of small animals, so if my body ends up in a ditch somewhere, tell the police to start their interrogations with him. Plus you might warn everybody to be careful with their cats.

Her lips tarried at mine. Baiting each other with the warmth of our breath, barely grazing, detouring, then connecting.Craig Thompson Baiting Sayings By Craig Thompson: Her lips tarried at mine. Baiting each other with the warmth of our breath, barely
We have probably all seen teachers who would pick a student up by the scruff of the neck for saying 'Shit,' but who would walk by without a word when overhearing that same student taunting a classmate, calling him a 'fag.' It is often easier not to intervene - even when there is a clear-cut victim. It's out in the hall. It isn't our business. It isn't our problem.

But our inactions, like our actions, define who we are and what are true values are.
Richard H. Eyster Baiting Sayings By Richard H. Eyster: We have probably all seen teachers who would pick a student up by the scruff
Americans are still a fair and just people. They know the difference between racism and race-baiting, between violence and accusations of violence, between hatred and patriotism. Let them weigh the evidence for as long as they need, because when the verdict comes down, we will once again be on the right side.Glenn Beck Baiting Sayings By Glenn Beck: Americans are still a fair and just people. They know the difference between racism and
When she reached the other two overseers, she let them see her, let them try to draw their blades. She knew it wasn't the weapon in her hands that made them stupid with panic, but rather her eyes - eyes that told them they had been tricked these past few months, that cutting her hair and whipping her hadn't been enough, that she had been baiting them into forgetting that Adarlan's Assassin was in their midst. ButSarah J. Maas Baiting Sayings By Sarah J. Maas: When she reached the other two overseers, she let them see her, let them try
It is true that the Puritans banned all recreation on Sundays and all games of chance, gambling, bear baiting, horse racing, and bowling in or around taverns at all times. They did so, not because they were opposed to fun, but because they judged these activities to be inherently harmful or immoral.Leland Ryken Baiting Sayings By Leland Ryken: It is true that the Puritans banned all recreation on Sundays and all games of
How to keep the seductive ghost of bliss long absconded from baiting you and hooking you and pulling you back out and eating your heart raw and (if you're lucky) eliminating your map for good.David Foster Wallace Baiting Sayings By David Foster Wallace: How to keep the seductive ghost of bliss long absconded from baiting you and hooking

And he didn't feel the least bit guilty for it.
More non-fringe, non-radical homosexuals emerge into public view every day. As the stereotype of the homosexual as antisocial deviant crumbles, a (political) party or faction that tolerates gay-baiting rhetoric in the name of 'family values' makes 'family values' look more and more like common bigotry.Jonathan Rauch Baiting Sayings By Jonathan Rauch: More non-fringe, non-radical homosexuals emerge into public view every day. As the stereotype of the
By the time I got to high school, I had learned to be more cautious about revealing my dreams. I was reading - and therefore writing - adventure stories. This was before I'd read Isak Dinesen and Mikhail Bulgakov, before Ernest Hemingway and T. Coraghessan Boyle, before I'd read something and really felt it, when writing was still just a compulsion, and my teen-age brain was only bordering on sentience. I filled pages of white space with swashbuckling, rapier-wielding, sidekick-sacrificing, dragon-baiting romance.
(from 'High-School Confidential' in the The New Yorker.)
Tea Obreht Baiting Sayings By Tea Obreht: By the time I got to high school, I had learned to be more cautious

What's in your other hand?" "A message I need to have sent," he lied blithely. "I'll leave you to your work." "Without a kiss?" He definitely felt his mouth twitch that time. "You're baiting me." "And enjoying it very much, thank you." "I haven't the time for it now," he said. "I've a very important matter to attend to. Perhaps later.Lynn Kurland Baiting Sayings By Lynn Kurland: What's in your other hand?" "A message I need to have sent," he lied blithely.
I felt like one who wants to trap and cage a little bird, and after years of waiting and luring and baiting finds that she must do no more than hold out her hand, and the finch lands on her finger and does not fly. You scarcely dare to move. It rests on your hand whole and free, foolishly trusting and infinitely courageous. It will never be more beautiful.Elizabeth Wein Baiting Sayings By Elizabeth Wein: I felt like one who wants to trap and cage a little bird, and after
In baiting a mousetrap with cheese, always leave room for the mouse.Saki Baiting Sayings By Saki: In baiting a mousetrap with cheese, always leave room for the mouse.
Come, Sleep; O Sleep! the certain knot of peace,
The baiting-place of wit, the balm of woe,
The poor man's wealth, the prisoner's release,
Th' indifferent judge between the high and low;
With shield of proof shield me from out the prease
Of those fierce darts Despair at me doth throw.

Do you love him?"
"I wish people would stop asking me that," Celia muttered under her breath.
"What people?"
"Gran." She swallowed. "Mr. Pinter."
"Mr. Pinter?" Minerva echoed with decided interest.
"It's not what you think," Celia protested. "I hired him to find out the truth about my suitors, so he wanted to know if I was in love with any of them."
Minerva arched one eyebrow. "And why should he care?"
"That's what I said. And ever since, he's been baiting me in front of them and telling me awful things about them to blacken them in my mind."
"Even Lyons?" Minerva said.
"Well, no. I mean, I'm sure you've heard about the madness in the duke's family, but beyond that, Jackson hasn't found a single thing-"
"Jackson?"
Celia colored. "Mr. Pinter." When Minerva kept staring, she added sullenly, "We've been in each other's pockets because of the investigation. That's all.
Sabrina Jeffries Baiting Sayings By Sabrina Jeffries: Do you love him?""I wish people would stop asking me that," Celia muttered under her
These were eye-opening years for me. When I'd come back to Warner Brothers after the war, I'd shared the orthodox liberal view that Communists - if there really were any - were liberals who were temporarily off track, and whatever they were, they didn't pose much of a threat to me or anyone. I heard whispers that Moscow wanted to infiltrate the world's most powerful medium of entertainment, but I'd passed them off as irrational and emotional red baiting. Now I knew from firsthand experience how Communists used lies, deceit, violence, or any other tactic that suited them to advance the cause of Soviet expansionism. I knew from the experience of hand-to-hand combat that America faced no more insidious or evil threat than that of Communism.Ronald Reagan Baiting Sayings By Ronald Reagan: These were eye-opening years for me. When I'd come back to Warner Brothers after the
Ginger Rogers was one of the worst, red-baiting, terrifying reactionaries in Hollywood.Joseph Losey Baiting Sayings By Joseph Losey: Ginger Rogers was one of the worst, red-baiting, terrifying reactionaries in Hollywood.
Ronald Reagan was an anti-government, union-busting, race baiting, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-intellectual, who cut rich people's taxes in half, had a incurable case of the military-industrial complex, and said Medicare was socialism that would destroy our freedom. [ ... ] Both sides really should stop pretending he was something other than the man most responsible for our decline.Bill Maher Baiting Sayings By Bill Maher: Ronald Reagan was an anti-government, union-busting, race baiting, anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-intellectual, who cut rich people's
What can I do with these people? They come to the risk so dutifully. Are delighted by anecdotes that give them Poetry. Are grateful to be told of diagonals that give them Painting. Good people. But stubborn when warned the beast is not domestic. How can I persuade them that the dark, soulful Keats was five feet one? Liked fighting and bear-baiting? I can't explain the red hair. Nor say how you died so full of lust for Fanny Brawne. I will tell them of Semele.Jack Gilbert Baiting Sayings By Jack Gilbert: What can I do with these people? They come to the risk so dutifully. Are
The single most important technique for making progress is to write ten words. Doesn't matter if you're badly stuck, or your day is completely jam-packed, or you're away from your computer - carry a small paper notebook and write a sentence of description while you're waiting on line at a coffee shop. I think of this as baiting a hook. Even if you have a few days in a row where nothing comes except those ten words, I find that as long as you have to think about the novel enough to write ten words, the chances are that more will come.Naomi Novik Baiting Sayings By Naomi Novik: The single most important technique for making progress is to write ten words. Doesn't matter
Perhaps some guest editors would keep Ethel and Julius Rosenberg in their peripheral vision. But Sylvia recognized their execution as the most extreme and gruesome example of McCarthy's red-baiting paranoia.Elizabeth Winder Baiting Sayings By Elizabeth Winder: Perhaps some guest editors would keep Ethel and Julius Rosenberg in their peripheral vision. But
They had a nice,if not private, reunion before Rupert joined them. He didn't exactly ruin it, but if he insisted on enacting their pretense tonight, even for her mother,it surely would. Unfortunately, he entered the room wearing a horribly bright lime-green dinner jacket that had his mother immediately scowling at him. So even after that kiss upstairs, he'd decided on an evening of humorously baiting his mother again. Bad timing, with her own mother there, or maybe not.At least it kept Rebecca's own mood light for the moment, since she knew why he did it.
Nor did Julie hold her tongue, remarking in disgust, "I see your taste is still beyond flamboyant. You're a bloody peacock, Rue."
He actually looked behind him as he replied, "I thought I had my feathers tucked away nicely.
Johanna Lindsey Baiting Sayings By Johanna Lindsey: They had a nice,if not private, reunion before Rupert joined them. He didn't exactly ruin
Gran, for the gods' love, it's talk like yours that starts riots!" I said keeping my voice down. "Will you just put a stopper in it?"
She looked at me and sighed. "Girl, do you ever take a breath and wonder if folk don't put out bait for you? To see if you'll bite? You'll never get a man if you don't relax."
My dear old Gran. It's a wonder her children aren't every one of them as mad as priests, if she mangles their wits as she mangles mine.
"Granny, "I told her, "this is dead serious. I can't relax, no more than any Dog. I'm not shopping for a man. That's the last thing I need.
Tamora Pierce Baiting Sayings By Tamora Pierce: Gran, for the gods' love, it's talk like yours that starts riots!" I said keeping

The Puritans hated bear-baiting, not because it gave pain to the bear, but because it gave pleasure to the spectators.Thomas Babington Macaulay Baiting Sayings By Thomas Babington Macaulay: The Puritans hated bear-baiting, not because it gave pain to the bear, but because it
The diversion of baiting an author has the sanction of all ages and nations, and is more lawful than the sport of teasing other animals, because, for the most part, he comes voluntarily to the stake, furnished, as he imagines, by the patron powers of literature, with resistless weapons, and impenetrable armour, with the mail of the boar of Erymanth, and the paws of the lion of Nemea.Samuel Johnson Baiting Sayings By Samuel Johnson: The diversion of baiting an author has the sanction of all ages and nations, and
