She had stepped into the thin strip of earth that they claimed as their own. Bound by the last building on Brewster and a brick wall, they reigned in that unlit alley like dwarfed warrior kings. Born with the appendages of power, circumcised by the guillotine, and baptized with the steam from a million non reflective mirrors, these young men wouldn't be called upon to thrust a bayonet into an Asian farmer, target a torpedo, scatter their iron seed from a B-52 into the wound of the earth, point a finger to move a nation, or stick a pole into the moon
and they knew it. They only had that three-hundred-foot alley to serve them as stateroom, armored tank, and executioner's chamber.
Gloria Naylor Bayonet Sayings By Gloria Naylor: She had stepped into the thin strip of earth that they claimed as their own.

Non-cooperation is beyond the reach of the bayonet. It has found an abiding place in the Indian heart.

It has found an abiding place in
While other individuals or institutions obtain their income by production of goods and services and by the peaceful and voluntary sale of these goods and services to others, the State obtains its revenue by the use of compulsion; that is, by the use and the threat of the jailhouse and the bayonet.Murray Rothbard Bayonet Sayings By Murray Rothbard: While other individuals or institutions obtain their income by production of goods and services and
Next morning the not-yet-subsided sea rolled in long slow billows of mighty bulk, and striving in the Pequod's gurgling track, pushed her on like giants' palms outspread. The strong, unstaggering breeze abounded so, that sky and air seemed vast outbellying sails; the whole world boomed before the wind. Muffled in the full morning light, the invisible sun was only known by the spread intensity of his place; where his bayonet rays moved on in stacks. Emblazonings, as of crowned Babylonian kings and queens, reigned over everything. The sea was as a crucible of molten gold, that bubblingly leaps with light and heat.Herman Melville Bayonet Sayings By Herman Melville: Next morning the not-yet-subsided sea rolled in long slow billows of mighty bulk, and striving
His system is a combination of ferocious blows, holds and throws, adapted from Japanese bayonet tactics, ju-jitsu, Chinese boxing, Sikh wrestling, French wrestling and Cornish collar-and-elbow wrestling, plus expert knowledge of hip-shooting, knife fighting and use of the Tommy gun and hand grenade.Giles Milton Bayonet Sayings By Giles Milton: His system is a combination of ferocious blows, holds and throws, adapted from Japanese bayonet
Though reporters made much of the challenge of keeping up with Patton, he was never far away from the press. (...) Presiding at a ceremony to open the Roosevelt Railroad Bridge near Mainz, he was invited to cut the ribbon with a large pair of scissors. He gave them back demanding 'a goddamned bayonet' adding he wasn't 'a goddamned tailor' - as if anyone in their wildest imagination supposed he might be.Barry Turner Bayonet Sayings By Barry Turner: Though reporters made much of the challenge of keeping up with Patton, he was never
I need just be a bayonet, a bayonet named Diving Punishment. I wish I'd been born a storm. Or a menace. Or a single grenade. No heart, no tears, just as a terrible gale'd have been good. If [by doing this] I become that, then so be it.Kohta Hirano Bayonet Sayings By Kohta Hirano: I need just be a bayonet, a bayonet named Diving Punishment. I wish I'd been

Marriage My husband likes to watch the cooking shows, the building shows, the Discovery Channel, and the surgery channel. Last night he told us about a man who came into the emergency room with a bayonet stuck entirely through his skull and brain. Did they get it out? We all asked. They did. And the man was ok because the blade went exactly between the two halves without severing them. And who had shoved this bayonet into the man's head? His wife. A strong woman, someone said. And everyone else agreed.Marie Howe Bayonet Sayings By Marie Howe: Marriage My husband likes to watch the cooking shows, the building shows, the Discovery Channel,
There are two powers only which are sufficient to control men, and secure the rights of individuals and a peaceable administration; these are the combined force of religion and law, and the force or fear of the bayonet.Noah Webster Bayonet Sayings By Noah Webster: There are two powers only which are sufficient to control men, and secure the rights

What's it like to be that goofy little soldier, scared stiff, with his bayonet aimed at Christ? What's it like to have been a woman in a defense-plant job during World War II? What's it like to be a kid at the front lines? It's all funny and tragic at the same timeStuds Terkel Bayonet Sayings By Studs Terkel: What's it like to be that goofy little soldier, scared stiff, with his bayonet aimed
I still remember the moment when my gaze fell upon the mutilated face of a young woman, her features slashed through with a bayonet. Soundlessly, and without fuss, some tender thing deep inside me broke. Something that, until then, I hadn't realised was there.Han Kang Bayonet Sayings By Han Kang: I still remember the moment when my gaze fell upon the mutilated face of a
I remember still how full of bad magic all those spearpoints to be put on the ends of rifles seemed to be. One was like a sharpened curtain rod. Another was triangular in cross-section, so that the wound it made wouldn't close up again and keep the blood and guts from falling out. Another one had sawteeth - so it could work its way through bone, I guess. I can remember thinking that war was so horrible that, at last, thank goodness, nobody could ever be fooled by romantic pictures and fiction and history into marching to war again.
Nowadays, of course, you can buy a machine gun with a plastic bayonet for your little kid at the nearest toy boutique.
Kurt Vonnegut Bayonet Sayings By Kurt Vonnegut: I remember still how full of bad magic all those spearpoints to be put on
But Ransom soon perceived that it regarded intelligence simply and solely as a weapon, which it had no more wish to employ in its off-duty hours than a soldier has to do bayonet practice when he is on leave. Thought was for it a device necessary to certain ends, but thought in itself did not interest it. It assumed reason as externally and inorganically as it had assumed Weston's body.C.S. Lewis Bayonet Sayings By C.S. Lewis: But Ransom soon perceived that it regarded intelligence simply and solely as a weapon, which
Today's political leaders demonstrate their low opinion of the public with every social law they pass. They believe that, if given the right to chose, the citizenry will probably make the wrong choice. Legislators do not think any more in terms of persuading people; they feel the need to force their agenda on the public at the point of a bayonet and the barrel of a gun, in the name of the IRS, the SEC, the FDA, the DEA, the EPA, or a multitude of other ABCs of government authority.Mark Skousen Bayonet Sayings By Mark Skousen: Today's political leaders demonstrate their low opinion of the public with every social law they
The General Order is always:
... To manoeuver in a body and on the attack.
... To maintain strict but not pettifogging discipline.
... To keep the troops constantly at the ready.
... To employ the utmost vigilance on sentry go.
... To use the bayonet on every possible occasion.
And to follow up the enemy remorselessly until he is utterly destroyed.
Lazare Carnot Bayonet Sayings By Lazare Carnot: The General Order is always: ... To manoeuver in a body and on the attack.
Two Confederate senators proposed a night attack on McClellan employing exotic tactics - "5000 [men] stripped naked to storm the camps of the enemy with the bayonet only & Kill everybody with clothes on.William J. Cooper Jr. Bayonet Sayings By William J. Cooper Jr.: Two Confederate senators proposed a night attack on McClellan employing exotic tactics - "5000 [men]
The question that arises is this: had father hated the people on the ship, just as she now hates the motorcyclist and the man who mocked her because she covered her ears? No, Agnes cannot imagine that Father was capable of hatred. Hate traps us by binding us too tightly to our adversary. This is the obscenity of war: the intimacy of mutually shed blood, the lascivious proximity of two soldiers who, eye to eye, bayonet each other. Agnes was sure: it was precisely this kind of intimacy that her father found repugnant. The melee on the ship filled him with such disgust that he preferred to drown.Milan Kundera Bayonet Sayings By Milan Kundera: The question that arises is this: had father hated the people on the ship, just
May the might be in the light, the beyond of east or west.
As the faith lies within a broken bayonet, an ending put best.

But now, for the first time, I see you are a man like me. I thought of your hand-grenades, of your bayonet, of your rifle; now I see your wife and your face and our fellowship. Forgive me, comrade. We always see it too late. Why do they never tell us that you are poor devils like us, that your mothers are just as anxious as ours, and that we have the same fear of death, and the same dying and the same agony
Forgive me, comrade; how could you be my enemy?
Erich Maria Remarque Bayonet Sayings By Erich Maria Remarque: But now, for the first time, I see you are a man like me. I
The bullet is a fool, the bayonet is a fine chap.Alexander Suvorov Bayonet Sayings By Alexander Suvorov: The bullet is a fool, the bayonet is a fine chap.
Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.Robert Charles Winthrop Bayonet Sayings By Robert Charles Winthrop: Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or

A religious act cannot be performed with the aid of the bayonet or the bomb.Mahatma Gandhi Bayonet Sayings By Mahatma Gandhi: A religious act cannot be performed with the aid of the bayonet or the bomb.
Like Lono's sword, he was both a symbol and a lethal tool; like the bayonet, his sole purpose was to be buried in the foeman's intestines; like all of his prior imagined reincarnations, his sole purpose was, like some macabre butterfly, to metamorphose into a killing machine, and die with sword in hand.Christopher S.M. Lyon Bayonet Sayings By Christopher S.M. Lyon: Like Lono's sword, he was both a symbol and a lethal tool; like the bayonet,
Quiet down! You're supposed to be dead!" snapped a passing Union soldier.
"This is a private conversation," Margaret snapped back.
"This is a battle," he hissed.
"No, honey, this is called pretending. I hate to break it to you, but we're not really in the Civil War. If you'd like to feel a bit more authentic, I'd be happy to stick this bayonet up your ass.
Kristan Higgins Bayonet Sayings By Kristan Higgins: Quiet down! You're supposed to be dead!" snapped a passing Union soldier."This is a private

Cross-examination is the greatest legal engine ever invented for the discovery of truth. You can do anything with a bayonet except sit on it. A lawyer can do anything with cross-examination if he is skillful enough not to impale his own cause upon it.John Henry Wigmore Bayonet Sayings By John Henry Wigmore: Cross-examination is the greatest legal engine ever invented for the discovery of truth. You can
Where the hell do you put the bayonet?Chesty Puller Bayonet Sayings By Chesty Puller: Where the hell do you put the bayonet?
HOW solemn, as one by one,
As the ranks returning, all worn and sweaty - as the men file by where I stand;
As the faces, the masks appear - as I glance at the faces, studying the masks;
(As I glance upward out of this page, studying you, dear friend, whoever you are;)
How solemn the thought of my whispering soul, to each in the ranks, and to you;
I see behind each mask, that wonder, a kindred soul;
O the bullet could never kill what you really are, dear friend,
Nor the bayonet stab what you really are:
... The soul! yourself I see, great as any, good as the best,
Waiting, secure and content, which the bullet could never kill,
Nor the bayonet stab, O friend!
Walt Whitman Bayonet Sayings By Walt Whitman: HOW solemn, as one by one, As the ranks returning, all worn and sweaty -
Fear kills, want to kill. Fear is destructive. Love is creative energy. When you love you would like to create - you may like to sing a song, paint, write poetry, but you would not take a bayonet or an atom bomb and go rushing off madly to kill people who are absolutely unknown to you, who have done nothing, who are as unknown to you as you are to them.Rajneesh Bayonet Sayings By Rajneesh: Fear kills, want to kill. Fear is destructive. Love is creative energy. When you love
She was as faithful as a morning mist, as hard as a sword-bayonet, and that, he thought, made her a suitable reward for a soldier.Bernard Cornwell Bayonet Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: She was as faithful as a morning mist, as hard as a sword-bayonet, and that,
A Bayonet's contrition is nothing to the dead.Emily Dickinson Bayonet Sayings By Emily Dickinson: A Bayonet's contrition is nothing to the dead.
Events are only the shells of ideas; and often it is the fluent thought of ages that is crystallized in a moment by the stroke of a pen or the point of a bayonet.Edwin Hubbel Chapin Bayonet Sayings By Edwin Hubbel Chapin: Events are only the shells of ideas; and often it is the fluent thought of
I dreamed kind Jesus fouled the big-gun gears; and caused a permanent stoppage in all bolts; and buckled with a smile Mausers and Colts; and rusted every bayonet with His tears.Wilfred Owen Bayonet Sayings By Wilfred Owen: I dreamed kind Jesus fouled the big-gun gears; and caused a permanent stoppage in all
My policy is trust peace and to put aside the bayonet.Rutherford B. Hayes Bayonet Sayings By Rutherford B. Hayes: My policy is trust peace and to put aside the bayonet.
Gentlemen, do you know what is the finest speech that I ever in my life heard or read? It is the address of Garibaldi to his Roman soldiers, when he told them: "Soldier, what I have to offer you is fatigue, danger, struggle and death; the chill of the cold night in the free air, and heat under the burning sun; no lodgings, no munitions, no provisions, but forced marches, dangerous watchposts and the continual struggle with the bayonet against batteries;- - those who love freedom and their country may follow me." That is the most glorious speech I ever heard in my life.Lajos Kossuth Bayonet Sayings By Lajos Kossuth: Gentlemen, do you know what is the finest speech that I ever in my life

A villager in Ca Lu said it to me, before I removed his intestines with a bayonet." "Was he talking about himself?" Donaldson asked. "Or you?" "You tell me. Did you feel alive when you killed your father, Donaldson?" Donaldson nodded. "And when you killed the owner of the Pinto?" Mr. K continued. "Goddamn piece of crap car. I wish I could kill that guy again." "How about someone else in his place?" Donaldson squinted at Mr. K. "What do you mean?" Another half smile. "The man in my trunk. If I gave you the chance to kill him, would you?Blake Crouch Bayonet Sayings By Blake Crouch: A villager in Ca Lu said it to me, before I removed his intestines with
For centuries the State has committed mass murder and called it "war"; then ennobled the mass slaughter that "war" involves. For centuries the State has enslaved people into its armed battalions and called it "conscription" in the "national service." For centuries the State has robbed people at bayonet point and called it "taxation.Murray N. Rothbard Bayonet Sayings By Murray N. Rothbard: For centuries the State has committed mass murder and called it "war"; then ennobled the
In any case, the bayonet isn't as important as it used to be. It's more usual now to go into the attack with hand-grenades and your entrenching tool. The sharpened spade is a lighter and more versatile weapon - not only can you get a man under the chin, but more to the point, you can strike a blow with a lot more force behind it. That's especially true if you can bring it down diagonally between the neck and the shoulder, because then you can split down as far as the chest. When you put a bayonet in, it can stick, and you have to give the other man a hefty kick in the guts to get it out.Erich Maria Remarque Bayonet Sayings By Erich Maria Remarque: In any case, the bayonet isn't as important as it used to be. It's more
Mirabeau: "If you have been told to clear us from this hall, you must ask for orders to use force. We shall leave our seats only at bayonet point. The King can cause us to be killed; tell him we all await death; but he need not hope that we shall separate until we have made the constitution."
Audible only to his neighbor, he adds, "If they come, we bugger off, quick.
Hilary Mantel Bayonet Sayings By Hilary Mantel: Mirabeau: "If you have been told to clear us from this hall, you must ask

But generally we are better at wielding the handbag than the bayonet.Margaret Thatcher Bayonet Sayings By Margaret Thatcher: Women have plenty of roles in which they can serve with distinction: some of us
Voting is merely a labor-saving device for ascertaining on which side force lies and bowing to the inevitable ... It is neither more nor less than a paper representative of the bayonet, the bully, and the bullet.Benjamin Tucker Bayonet Sayings By Benjamin Tucker: Voting is merely a labor-saving device for ascertaining on which side force lies and bowing
The day will come, sooner or later, when people will wonder at the necessity of taking all this trouble to expose the folly of a system, so childish and absurd, and yet so often enforced at the point of a bayonet.Jean-Baptiste Say Bayonet Sayings By Jean-Baptiste Say: The day will come, sooner or later, when people will wonder at the necessity of
Alfred is taken past this broom, and enters this room; which can only be described as 'piecemeal'. It is full of pieces of fish-market paraphernalia, pieces of military-regalia; and pieces of rusted-steel.
It is full of these spiky-hooks, fishmongery-books; and saline-scalers. These bayonet-blades, grenades; and dusty loud-halers.
Joss Sheldon Bayonet Sayings By Joss Sheldon: Alfred is taken past this broom, and enters this room; which can only be described

We'll then," Enjd said. "What's the problem?"
"This," Mindy said. She opened her hand and held up a tiny green plastic toy solider thrusting a bayonet.
"I don't understand," Enid said.
"This morning, when I opened my door to get the newspaper, I found a whole troop of them arranged on the mat."
"And you think Paul Rice did it," Enid said skeptically.
"I don't think he did it. I know he did it," Mindy said. "He told me if I didn't approve his air conditioners, it was war ...
Candace Bushnell Bayonet Sayings By Candace Bushnell: We'll then," Enjd said. "What's the problem?""This," Mindy said. She opened her hand and held
If our country, when pressed with wrongs at the point of the bayonet, had been governed by its heads instead of its hearts, where should we have been now? Hanging on a gallows as high as Haman's.Thomas Jefferson Bayonet Sayings By Thomas Jefferson: If our country, when pressed with wrongs at the point of the bayonet, had been
The purpose of bayonet training is to awaken your killer instincts. The killer instinct will make you strong. If the meek ever inherit the earth the strong will take it away from them. The weak exist to be devoured by the strong. Every Marine must pack his own gear. Every Marine must be the instrument of his own salvation.Stanley Kubrick Bayonet Sayings By Stanley Kubrick: The purpose of bayonet training is to awaken your killer instincts. The killer instinct will
My belief has always been ... that wherever in this land any individual's constitutional rights are being unjustly denied, it is the obligation of the federal government-at point of bayonet if necessary-to restore that individual's constitutional rightsRonald Reagan Bayonet Sayings By Ronald Reagan: My belief has always been ... that wherever in this land any individual's constitutional rights

The purpose of the bayonet training, Sergeant Gerheim explains, is to awaken our killer instincts. The killer instinct will make us fearless and aggressive, like animals. If the meek ever inherit the earth the strong will take it away from them. The weak exist to be devoured by the strong. Every Marine must pack his own gear. Every Marine must be the instrument of his own salvation. It's hard, but there it is.Gustav Hasford Bayonet Sayings By Gustav Hasford: The purpose of the bayonet training, Sergeant Gerheim explains, is to awaken our killer instincts.
Etta released a soft "Oofph!" as her feet struck the floor, and they were suddenly wrapped in cool, dry air. Nicholas's grip on her hand tightened as the world fell into place around them.

They weren't falling off the side of a cliff. They hadn't been shot dead on sight, run through by sword or bayonet. And they hadn't emerged into a crocodile-filled swamp, or in the middle of a crowded market, or for that matter, in a burning building. So he supposed he should be grateful. But he was mostly exhausted.
Alexandra Bracken Bayonet Sayings By Alexandra Bracken: Etta released a soft "Oofph!" as her feet struck the floor, and they were suddenly
mercy and justice are deadlier than any rifle or bayonet.David Weber Bayonet Sayings By David Weber: mercy and justice are deadlier than any rifle or bayonet.
In reality, at the end of World War II, America imposed democracy at the point of a bayonet on Japan and Germany, and it has proved a resounding success in both countries. The problem with liberals is that they never give bayonets a chance.Dinesh D'Souza Bayonet Sayings By Dinesh D'Souza: In reality, at the end of World War II, America imposed democracy at the point

Let us thank God that we live in an age when something has influence besides the bayonet.Daniel Webster Bayonet Sayings By Daniel Webster: Let us thank God that we live in an age when something has influence besides
There was never anything so gallant, so spruce, so brilliant, and so well disposed as the two armies. Trumpets, fifes, hautboys, drums, and cannon made music such as Hell itself had never heard. The cannons first of all laid flat about six thousand men on each side; the muskets swept away from this best of worlds nine or ten thousand ruffians who infested its surface. The bayonet was also a sufficient reason for the death of several thousands. The whole might amount to thirty thousand souls. Candide, who trembled like a philosopher, hid himself as well as he could during this heroic butchery.Voltaire Bayonet Sayings By Voltaire: There was never anything so gallant, so spruce, so brilliant, and so well disposed as
With only sixty men to hold off four hundred Americans, the British commander of the redoubt, a Major Campbell, surrendered to Laurens. Afterward, when an unhinged captain from New Hampshire threatened Campbell with his bayonet, Hamilton stepped between them, because rules were rules.Sarah Vowell Bayonet Sayings By Sarah Vowell: With only sixty men to hold off four hundred Americans, the British commander of the
He had been longing to get at these Frenchmen and to cut them down, their being so near seemed to him now so awful that he could not believe his eyes. "Who are they? What are they running for? Can it be to me? Can they be running to me? And what for? To kill me? Me, whom every one's so fond of?" He recalled his mother's love, the love of his family and his friends, and the enemy's intention of killing him seemed impossible. "But they may even kill me." For more than ten seconds he stood, not moving from the spot, nor grasping his position. The foremost Frenchman with the hook nose was getting so near that he could see the expression of his face. And the excited, alien countenance of the man, who was running so lightly and breathlessly towards him, with his bayonet lowered, terrified Rostov. He snatched up his pistol, and instead of firing with it, flung it at the Frenchman and ran to the bushes with all his might.Leo Tolstoy Bayonet Sayings By Leo Tolstoy: He had been longing to get at these Frenchmen and to cut them down, their
The school year started in September, with a long vacation in the winter, not the summer, due to the difficulty of keeping the schools warm in North Korea's harsh winters. My kindergarten had a large wood-burning stove in the middle of the classroom and walls painted with colourful scenes of children performing gymnastics, children in uniform, and of a North Korean soldier simultaneously impaling a Yankee, a Japanese and a South Korean soldier with his rifle bayonet.Hyeonseo Lee Bayonet Sayings By Hyeonseo Lee: The school year started in September, with a long vacation in the winter, not the
At school nobody ever taught us how to light a cigarette in a storm of rain, nor how a fire could be made with wet wood-nor that it is best to stick a bayonet in the belly because there it doesn't get jammed, as it does in the ribs.Erich Maria Remarque Bayonet Sayings By Erich Maria Remarque: At school nobody ever taught us how to light a cigarette in a storm of

Let me tell you what is coming ... Your fathers and husbands, your sons and brothers, will be herded at the point of the bayonet ...

Your fathers and husbands, your sons and
Lay down the axe; fling by the spade;
Leave in its track the toiling plough;
The rifle and the bayonet-blade
For arms like yours were fitter now;
And let the hands that ply the pen
Quit the light task, and learn to wield
The horseman's crooked brand, and rein
The charger on the battle-field.
William C. Bryant Bayonet Sayings By William C. Bryant: Lay down the axe; fling by the spade;Leave in its track the toiling plough;The rifle
The power which money gives is that of brute force; it is the power of the bludgeon and the bayonet.William Cobbett Bayonet Sayings By William Cobbett: The power which money gives is that of brute force; it is the power of
The glory of the old Irish nation, which in our hour will grow young and strong again. Should we fail, the country will not be worth more than it is now. The sword of famine is less sparing than the bayonet of the soldier.Thomas Francis Meagher Bayonet Sayings By Thomas Francis Meagher: The glory of the old Irish nation, which in our hour will grow young and
