In the most extreme cases, I would pull a big pair of glasses out of my pocket and carefully slide them up my nose, almost past the bridge. Then I wasn't pretending anymore: everything was a blur, the other person's pimples disappeared. Behind my thick lenses, I could say anything, without worrying about possible consequences. I felt my body flow into this gelatinous mist effortlessly, gracefully as a drop of oil falling into a glass of water. Blindness set me free. No longer a slave to outward forms, I finally became myself.Marie Nimier Bridge Over Water Sayings By Marie Nimier: In the most extreme cases, I would pull a big pair of glasses out of
The new dam, of course, will improve things. If ever filled it will back water to within sight of the Bridge, transforming what was formerly an adventure into a routine motorboat excursion. Those who see it then will not understand that half the beauty of Rainbow Bridge lay in its remoteness, its relative difficulty of access, and in the wilderness surrounding it, of which it was an integral part. When these aspects are removed the Bridge will be no more than an isolated geological oddity, an extension of that museumlike diorama to which industrial tourism tends to reduce the natural world.Edward Abbey Bridge Over Water Sayings By Edward Abbey: The new dam, of course, will improve things. If ever filled it will back water
In time, the brothers reached a river too deep to wade through and too dangerous to swim across. However, these brothers were learned in the magical arts, and so they simply waved their wands and made a bridge appear across the treacherous water. They were halfway across it when they found their path blocked by a hooded figure.J.K. Rowling Bridge Over Water Sayings By J.K. Rowling: In time, the brothers reached a river too deep to wade through and too dangerous
So you aren't going to tell me what just happened?" I deduced. The fact was clearly readable across his face.
He looked me over again and sighed. "Just be careful in the future," he said.
"How can I be careful when I have no idea why this just happened? Water grabbed me!" I cried, gesturing with my hands toward the side of the bridge where I once lay. "How is that possible?"
When he didn't respond to my questions, I probed him further, trying to get him to answer me. "What about you, with the mud and the rock and the crazy out-of-thin-air thing? What was that?" I demanded to know.
"It was saving your life," he said, a hint of petulance creeping into his tone. "Be careful in the future, Ramsey."
Then he took off running, and after a few seconds, he was gone from my sight ...
Markelle Grabo Bridge Over Water Sayings By Markelle Grabo: So you aren't going to tell me what just happened?" I deduced. The fact was
Chapter 3, The Dark Forest ... The sound of flowing water echoed in the distance and then the path converged upon a creek full of fast, rippling, white water cascading over brown and red colored rocks. Moss dangled across the pathway and swung back and forth as the trespassers moved under the green vegetation. Bright yellow fingers of sunlight attempted to filter through the dense tundra to touch the moist earth until finally, the appendages of light disappeared completely. "Come children, this way," called Mrs. Beetle leading her group over a moldy, moss-laden, wood bridge.M.K. McDaniel Bridge Over Water Sayings By M.K. McDaniel: Chapter 3, The Dark Forest ... The sound of flowing water echoed in the distance
Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, at high speed, her eyes fixed on the road, Abigail asked, a little loudly above the hum, 'Do you think that neurosis is when you lie to yourself so much that other people start to notice?' Christopher, who'd been looking through the blurred bridge railing down to the boats on the bay, turned and responded, 'I think it's when your past is like a floor set on water and it won't right itself, so you're shifting your weight and contorting yourself in ways that only make sense to you because no one else can see how you're trying to balance yourself, how you're trying just to stand.Lindsay Hill Bridge Over Water Sayings By Lindsay Hill: Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, at high speed, her eyes fixed on the road, Abigail
Then someone cried out, "Suicide bomber!" The crowd panicked. In the ensuing stampede, terrified pilgrims ran in both directions, many colliding in the middle of the bridge. A side railing collapsed under their weight, and scores leaped into the water whether they could swim or not. Hundreds were trampled to death. More than a thousand died. Hundreds of pairs of sandals were scattered around the bridge, left behind when pilgrims made their desperate dives into the river. I was given all of seventy-five seconds to tell the story on the Nightly News.Richard Engel Bridge Over Water Sayings By Richard Engel: Then someone cried out, "Suicide bomber!" The crowd panicked. In the ensuing stampede, terrified pilgrims
Moving closer to the edge, I peered down. The water was glassy green, extraordinarily clear. I experienced the feeling I sometimes get when I'm on a bridge or a railway platform. Rationally, you know that you've no intention of stepping off the bridge or the platform - or this ice floe - but you're aware that you could, and that the only thing stopping you is your will.Michelle Paver Bridge Over Water Sayings By Michelle Paver: Moving closer to the edge, I peered down. The water was glassy green, extraordinarily clear.
There is a Rainbow Bridge. It's like dog heaven. We run and play and never get fat. The sun is always warm but not hot, the water is fresh and cold, and we get to just be dogs. We all take turns waiting. The bridge is a beautiful wooden structure that crosses over from dog land to the other side when our owners come. Time means nothing to us, which is hard for humans to understand.Jennifer Probst Bridge Over Water Sayings By Jennifer Probst: There is a Rainbow Bridge. It's like dog heaven. We run and play and never
The morning sun burned away the mist so the valley below is now clear. The scope of what I see drowns out every other sense: There's no river, no water. Instead, hundreds of feet below the bridge the ground shifts and writhes. At first I think maybe it's a field of some sort but then individual colors begin to pull apart.
And all at once I understand what it is. Like a river flooding its banks, the entire valley is full of Mudo. The sound is not that of a raging waterfall but the pounding of two hundred million feet. The moans of a hundred million mouths. They pour through the valley, more people than I have ever seen. More people than I ever thought could have existed in one world. And they sense me, reach for me but are trapped by the mountains.
Carrie Ryan Bridge Over Water Sayings By Carrie Ryan: The morning sun burned away the mist so the valley below is now clear. The
I think Bridge Over Troubled Water was a very good song. Artie sang it beautifully. The Boxer was a really nice record. But I don't think I've written any great songs.Paul Simon Bridge Over Water Sayings By Paul Simon: I think Bridge Over Troubled Water was a very good song. Artie sang it beautifully.
Children and geniuses know that there is no bridge, only the water that lets itself be crossed.Rene Char Bridge Over Water Sayings By Rene Char: Children and geniuses know that there is no bridge, only the water that lets itself
May I be like a guard for those who are protectorless,
A guide for those who journey on the road.
For those who wish to go across the water,
May I be a boat, a raft, a bridge.
Shantideva Bridge Over Water Sayings By Shantideva: May I be like a guard for those who are protectorless, A guide for those
Without silence there is no music. Not simply because the faculty of hearing deteriorates from constant exposure to noise, but because silence is both the majestic frame and the stable solution for musical (and poetic) ideas. Silence is the soda water, the bracing ether, the bridge and mode of respect for receiving instructions from the angel.Russell Sherman Bridge Over Water Sayings By Russell Sherman: Without silence there is no music. Not simply because the faculty of hearing deteriorates from
Aboard the gondola, Giacomo Foscarini sat facing Mathias. They were crossing the Canal Grande, then they would navigate around San Marco and return. Foscarini loved to travel around Venice this way. They stopped briefly at a mooring near the bridge to the Rialto, and Foscarini had a servant fetch green olives, fresh Piacenza cheese, a few sausages from Modena, and wine that had just been delivered from Crete. The nobleman often dined aboard his gondola, looking out over the city, watching his world. "Seen from this vantage point, Venice doesn't seem like it's in any of its terrible troubles at all magister," said Foscarini.Riccardo Bruni Bridge Over Water Sayings By Riccardo Bruni: Aboard the gondola, Giacomo Foscarini sat facing Mathias. They were crossing the Canal Grande, then
Our first kiss was there on the bridge in the woods. How do you describe a first kiss? It is like trying to hold water in your hands. There is an ancient Chinese proverb that compares kissing to drinking salted water. "You drink, and your thirst increases," it says. Time, I'm sure, passed by, but we remained unavailable for comment.Kirstie Collins Brote Bridge Over Water Sayings By Kirstie Collins Brote: Our first kiss was there on the bridge in the woods. How do you describe
Lie on the bridge and watch the water flowing past. Or run, or wade through the swamp in your red boots. Or roll yourself up and listen to the rain falling on the roof. It's very easy to enjoy yourself.Tove Jansson Bridge Over Water Sayings By Tove Jansson: Lie on the bridge and watch the water flowing past. Or run, or wade through
When I first heard Elvis perform "Bridge Over Trouble Water" it was unbelivable,and I thought to myself, how the hell can I compete with that?Paul Simon Bridge Over Water Sayings By Paul Simon: When I first heard Elvis perform "Bridge Over Trouble Water" it was unbelivable,and I thought
The river reflected whatever it chose of sky and bridge and burning tree, and when the undergraduate had oared his boat through the reflections they closed again, completely, as if they had never been. There one might have sat the clock round lost in thought. Thought
to call it by a prouder name than it deserved
had let its line down into the stream. It swayed, minute after minute, hither and thither among the reflections and the weeds, letting the water lift it and sink it until
you know the little tug
the sudden conglomeration of an idea at the end of one's line: and then the cautious hauling of it in, and the careful laying of it out? Alas, laid on the grass how small, how insignificant this thought of mine looked; the sort of fish that a good fisherman puts back into the water so that it may grow fatter and be one day worth cooking and eating.
Virginia Woolf Bridge Over Water Sayings By Virginia Woolf: The river reflected whatever it chose of sky and bridge and burning tree, and when
Venice appeared to me as in a recurring dream, a place once visited and now fixed in memory like images on a photographer's plates so that my return was akin to turning the leaves of a portfolio: a scene of the gondolas moored by the railway station; the Grand Canal in twilight; the Rialto bridge; the Piazza San Marco; the shimmering, rippling wonderland; the bustling water traffic; the fish market; the Lido beach and boardwalk; Teeny in the launch; the singing, gesturing gondoliers; the bourgeois tourists drinking coffee at Florian's; the importunate beggars; the drowned girl's ghost haunting the Bridge of Sighs; the pigeons, mosquitoes and fetor of decay.Gary Inbinder Bridge Over Water Sayings By Gary Inbinder: Venice appeared to me as in a recurring dream, a place once visited and now
Whatever happened is water under the bridge. Burn the damn bridge and forget the past, he whispered.Carolyn Brown Bridge Over Water Sayings By Carolyn Brown: Whatever happened is water under the bridge. Burn the damn bridge and forget the past,
The night wore out, and, as he stood upon the bridge listening to the water as it splashed the river-walls of the Island of Paris, where the picturesque confusion of houses and cathedral shone bright in the light of the moon, the day came coldly, looking like a dead face out of the sky. Then, the night, with the moon and the stars, turned pale and died, and for a little while it seemed as if Creation were delivered over to Death's dominion. But, the glorious sun, rising, seemed to strike those words, that burden of the night, straight and warm to his heart in its long bright rays. And looking along them, with reverently shaded eyes, a bridge of light appeared to span the air between him and the sun, while the river sparkled under it.Charles Dickens Bridge Over Water Sayings By Charles Dickens: The night wore out, and, as he stood upon the bridge listening to the water
I notice how it takes a lazy man, a man that hates moving, to get set on moving once he does get started off, the same as when he was set on staying still, like it aint the moving he hates so much as the starting and the stopping. And like he would be kind of proud of whatever come up to make the moving or the setting still look hard. He set there on the wagon hunched up, blinking, listening to us tell about how quick the bridge went and how high the water was, and I be durn if he didn't act like he was proud of it, like he had made the river rise himself.William Faulkner Bridge Over Water Sayings By William Faulkner: I notice how it takes a lazy man, a man that hates moving, to get
Let the water flow beneath the bridge; let men be men, that is to say, weak, vain, inconstant, unjust, false, and presumptuous; let the world be the world still; you cannot prevent it. Let every one follow his own inclination and habits; you cannot recast them, and the best course is, to let them be as they are and bear with them. Do not think it strange when you witness unreasonableness and injustice; rest in peace in the bosom of God; He sees it all more clearly than you do, and yet permits it. Be content to do quietly and gently what it becomes you to do, and let everything else be to you as though it were not.Francois Fenelon Bridge Over Water Sayings By Francois Fenelon: Let the water flow beneath the bridge; let men be men, that is to say,
The steel-framed span loomed thirty feet above the muddy water. At the far end of the hundred-foot deck, the forest swallowed up a dirt road that used to lead somewhere. Years of traffic rumbling across the bridge had worn parallel streaks into the deck, and heavy runner boards covered holes in rotted planks. Metal rails sagged in spots. Still, the reddish-brown truss beams on either side stood stiff and straight, and overhead braces cast shadows on the deck below. On that rusty frame, between lines of vertical rivets, someone had painted a skull and crossbones and scribbled: 'Danger, This Is You.Jason Morgan Ward Bridge Over Water Sayings By Jason Morgan Ward: The steel-framed span loomed thirty feet above the muddy water. At the far end of
I was bullied and picked on because I was so different to everyone else, and I definitely didn't believe or even know I was fabulous back then. But those hard times made me everything I am today. It's all water under the bridge now, but being bullied and going through adversity definitely made me stronger.Kimora Lee Simmons Bridge Over Water Sayings By Kimora Lee Simmons: I was bullied and picked on because I was so different to everyone else, and
Where the shadow of the bridge fell I could see down for a long way, but not as far as the bottom. When you leave a leaf in water a long time after awhile the tissue will be gone and the delicate fibres waving slow as the motion of sleep. They don't touch one another, no matter how knotted up they once were, no matter how close they lay once to the bones.William Faulkner Bridge Over Water Sayings By William Faulkner: Where the shadow of the bridge fell I could see down for a long way,
All day, after two days and nights of rain, water had been rising in the dykes and now it was creeping rapidly up the five stone arches of the bridge where the she stood watching the wide rainy valley up which the tongue of river finally lost itself in a gray country of winter elms.H.E. Bates Bridge Over Water Sayings By H.E. Bates: All day, after two days and nights of rain, water had been rising in the
Ted Kennedy says that our policy in Iraq is adrift. Hmmm. Maybe like a car adrift in the water after its has gone over a bridge?Ann Coulter Bridge Over Water Sayings By Ann Coulter: Ted Kennedy says that our policy in Iraq is adrift. Hmmm. Maybe like a car
You crossed the water, left me ashore
It killed me enough, but you wanted more
You blew up the bridge, a mad terrorist
Waved from your side, through me a kiss
I started to follow but realized too late
There was nothing but air underneath my feet"
- from the song "Bridge" on the Collateral Damage album
Gayle Forman Bridge Over Water Sayings By Gayle Forman: You crossed the water, left me ashore It killed me enough, but you wanted more
About six in the evening I came out of the moorland to a white ribbon of road which wound up the narrow vale of a lowland stream. As I followed it, fields gave place to bent, the glen became a plateau, and presently I had reached a kind of pass where a solitary house smoked in the twilight. The road swung over a bridge, and leaning on the parapet was a young man. He was smoking a long clay pipe and studying the water with spectacled eyes. In his left hand was a small book with a finger marking the place. Slowly he repeated - As when a Gryphon through the wilderness With winged step, o'er hill and moory dale Pursues the Arimaspian. He jumped round as my step rung on the keystone, and I saw a pleasant sunburnt boyish face. 'Good evening to you,' he said gravely. 'It's a fine night for the road.' The smell of peat smoke and of some savoury roast floated to me from the house.John Buchan Bridge Over Water Sayings By John Buchan: About six in the evening I came out of the moorland to a white ribbon
The man in the water saw the eye of the man on the bridge gazing into his own through the sights of the rifle. He observed that it was a gray eye and remembered having read that gray eyes were keenest, and that all famous markmen had them. Nevertheless,Ambrose Bierce Bridge Over Water Sayings By Ambrose Bierce: The man in the water saw the eye of the man on the bridge gazing
I'm like the dog with a bone who crossed a low bridge in the fable. I see another dog passing beneath me carrying a bone, and I snap to take his bone - and drop my own into the water, into my reflection.Brent Weeks Bridge Over Water Sayings By Brent Weeks: I'm like the dog with a bone who crossed a low bridge in the fable.
It's better that you leave her alone," she said. "There isn't just water under your bridge, there's maggots and shit and dead bodies. Now, get the fuck out of my house before I call the police.Tarryn Fisher Bridge Over Water Sayings By Tarryn Fisher: It's better that you leave her alone," she said. "There isn't just water under your
That was the thing about water under a bridge. It could get caught up in a bunch of debris, or it could sweep everything away, leaving nothing behind; it all depended on the ferocity of the storm.Megan Hart Bridge Over Water Sayings By Megan Hart: That was the thing about water under a bridge. It could get caught up in
I have understood that it was, to the last, her proudest boast, that she never had been on the water in her life, except upon a bridge; and that over her tea (to which she was extremely partial) she, to the last, expressed her indignation at the impiety of mariners and others, who had the presumption to go 'meandering' about the world.Charles Dickens Bridge Over Water Sayings By Charles Dickens: I have understood that it was, to the last, her proudest boast, that she never
The Outing
An outburst of anger near the road, a refusal to speak on the path, a silence in the pine woods, a silence across the old railroad bridge, an attempt to be friendly in the water, a refusal to end the argument on the flat stones, a cry of anger on the steep bank of dirt, a weeping among the bushes.
Lydia Davis Bridge Over Water Sayings By Lydia Davis: The OutingAn outburst of anger near the road, a refusal to speak on the path,
He would return in half an hour - or in less. He walked away and I sat there alone, conscious, on the dark dismantled simplified scene, in the deep silence that rests on American towns during the hot season - there was now and then a far cry or a plash in the water, and at intervals the tinkle of the bells of the horse-cars on the long bridge, slow in the suffocating night - of the strange influence, half-sweet, half-sad, that abides in houses uninhabited or about to become so, in places muffled and bereaved, where the unheeded sofas and patient belittered tables seem (like the disconcerted dogs, to whom everything is alike sinister) to recognise the eve of a journey.Henry James Bridge Over Water Sayings By Henry James: He would return in half an hour - or in less. He walked away and
I had forgotten how wonderful it is to stand on a bridge and catch the scent of rain in the air. I had forgotten how much I need to be a part of water, wind, sky.Alice Steinbach Bridge Over Water Sayings By Alice Steinbach: I had forgotten how wonderful it is to stand on a bridge and catch the
Lots of water under that bridge, let's not drown ourselves in it.John Banville Bridge Over Water Sayings By John Banville: Lots of water under that bridge, let's not drown ourselves in it.
While I was brushing my hair the half hour went.

I hope it's water under the bridge, but Richard Carpenter is a complicated individual, and he's also entitled to his own opinion on how his sister is depicted. The film has lived on and survived, and to me is ultimately is an affectionate celebration of Karen Carpenter. I hope that wins out in the end.Todd Haynes Bridge Over Water Sayings By Todd Haynes: I hope it's water under the bridge, but Richard Carpenter is a complicated individual, and
You see, my son, it is not a fact that you will never face dangers. Difficulties always come, but they do not last forever. You will see that they pass away like water under a bridge.Sarada Devi Bridge Over Water Sayings By Sarada Devi: You see, my son, it is not a fact that you will never face dangers.

Lili, I think, saw so many human tragedies all around her ... people arranged it between them ... this was what they wanted ... none of her business ... animal miseries were different ... nobody paid any attention, but for her money only the animals counted ... time has passed, water under the bridge ... all in all I'd say she was right ...Louis-Ferdinand Celine Bridge Over Water Sayings By Louis-Ferdinand Celine: Lili, I think, saw so many human tragedies all around her ... people arranged it
Because there's no such thing as too much water under the bridge. The only problem is a refusal to deal with the water that's already gone pasts.Ellen Miller Bridge Over Water Sayings By Ellen Miller: Because there's no such thing as too much water under the bridge. The only problem
We were utterly alone. The hot-springs hotel where we'd had lunch, and the iron bridge, lay hidden in the shadow of the mountains. Every once in a while, as if remembering its duty, the sun showed its face through a break in the clouds. All we could hear were the screeches of crows and the rush of water. Someday, somewhere, I will see this scene, I felt. The opposite of deja-vu - not the feeling that I'd already seen what was around me, but the premonition that I would someday.Haruki Murakami Bridge Over Water Sayings By Haruki Murakami: We were utterly alone. The hot-springs hotel where we'd had lunch, and the iron bridge,
Because of her, there is no bridge between dreams and reality. In reality, because of her, drinking a glass of water has taste. In a dream, it doesn't have taste, unless she's in it with me. I do not have to dream about her, because all of my dreams about her, is my only reality.Lionel Suggs Bridge Over Water Sayings By Lionel Suggs: Because of her, there is no bridge between dreams and reality. In reality, because of
Calm down," comes a voice, and it's not Razor's. I rip my focus away from the water and there's a man [Pigpen] with blond hair and a cut like Razor's slowly approaching the bridge. His hands are up - a sign of submission. "Just calm down.Katie McGarry Bridge Over Water Sayings By Katie McGarry: Calm down," comes a voice, and it's not Razor's. I rip my focus away from
Liesel crossed the bridge over the Amper River. The water was glorious and emerald and rich. She could see the stones at the bottom and hear the familiar song of water. The world did not deserve such a river.Markus Zusak Bridge Over Water Sayings By Markus Zusak: Liesel crossed the bridge over the Amper River. The water was glorious and emerald and
We didn't build our bridges simply to avoid walking on water. Nothing so obvious. A bridge is a meeting place. A neutral place. A casual place. Enemies will choose to meet on a bridge and end their quarrel in that void ... For lovers, a bridge is a possibility, a metaphor of their chances. And for the traffic in whispered goods, where else but a bridge in the night?Jeanette Winterson Bridge Over Water Sayings By Jeanette Winterson: We didn't build our bridges simply to avoid walking on water. Nothing so obvious. A
And the things you said, the walk from chapel to the schoolhouse, your backpack, tests, these were a bridge running above the rushing water of what you actually felt. The goal was: learn to ignore what's down below. Fine if you met someone else who was the same as you, but you had to realize that nothing another person could do would make you feel better about any of it.Curtis Sittenfeld Bridge Over Water Sayings By Curtis Sittenfeld: And the things you said, the walk from chapel to the schoolhouse, your backpack, tests,
Oh, here we are at the bridge. I'm going to shut my eyes tight. I'm always afraid going over bridges. I can't help imagining that perhaps, just as we get to the middle, they'll crumple up like a jackknife and nip us. So I shut my eyes. But I always have to open them for all when I think we're getting near the middle. Because, you see, if the bridge did crumple up I'd want to see it crumple. What a jolly rumble it makes! I always like the rumble part of it. Isn't it splendid there are so many things to like in this world? There, we're over. Now I'll look back. Good night, dear Lake of Shining Waters. I always say good night to the things I love, just as I would to people. I think they like it. That water looks as if it was smiling at me.L.M. Montgomery Bridge Over Water Sayings By L.M. Montgomery: Oh, here we are at the bridge. I'm going to shut my eyes tight. I'm
Our houses are at least 12 feet under water. All you can see on TV are rooftops. And the bridge we came across, the I-10 twin span, is now split.George Clarke Bridge Over Water Sayings By George Clarke: Our houses are at least 12 feet under water. All you can see on TV
Prayer cannot bring water to parched fields, or mend a broken bridge, or rebuild a ruined city; but prayer can water an arid soul, mend a broken heart and rebuild a weakened will.Eric Greitens Bridge Over Water Sayings By Eric Greitens: Prayer cannot bring water to parched fields, or mend a broken bridge, or rebuild a
It's a tradition my great-grandfather started almost a hundred years ago, after my father was born. He gave my father fifty newly minted silver dollars and explained that each time something really amazing happened to him, he had to return one of the dollars to the universe so that someone else could wish on it.
I smile, recalling how Patrick had once told me a story of his grandfather standing on the Brooklyn Bridge in 1936 and throwing a silver dollar into the water after his beloved Yankees won the World Series. They won it for the next three years too, and his grandfather always believed that it was his coins - good luck returned to the universe - that kept their streak alive ...
... My father always used to tell me that if you keep the coins, you throw things out of balance ... It's all about passing the luck on and thanking the world for whatever good things have happened to you.
Kristin Harmel Bridge Over Water Sayings By Kristin Harmel: It's a tradition my great-grandfather started almost a hundred years ago, after my father was
I had a terrible premonition. His flight was to Miami. The old news footage flashed through my mind of Air Florida Flight 90 to Miami that went down in a freezing rain. It showed pieces of the wings and smashed fuselage floating in a huge hole in the ice next to the Fourteenth Street Bridge. A helicopter trying to lift a survivor from the black water. Rescuers watching helplessly from the shore. I tried to call him, but the network was down. I'd seen this fearsome power of the past before, how it can rise up without warning and strike the living with unerring timing. Later Lorenzo called from Miami and said it was a rough flight but they made it. I was happy that for once my intuition was wrong.J. J. Jorgens Bridge Over Water Sayings By J. J. Jorgens: I had a terrible premonition. His flight was to Miami. The old news footage flashed
It's the big new bridge," said Serge. "Takes you right across Lake What-the-Fuck." "Is that another real name?" "No," said Serge. "That's what I call it. It's really named Lake Surprise. But surprise is usually something good that provides delight, like winning the lottery or reaching in the back of the fridge and finding an unexpected jar of olives. But this lake got its name because it pissed people off." "How'd it do that?" "Another funny story. When Henry Flagler started the Overseas Railroad down the Keys, he looked for the route with the most land, because bridges over water cost more. So he sent out surveyors, and they began laying tracks south from the mainland of Florida, across some little islands and an isthmus to Key Largo. And I can't believe they built that far before realizing that right in the middle of a big chunk of land was this giant lake, and now they have to build an extra bridge that wasn't in the budget.Tim Dorsey Bridge Over Water Sayings By Tim Dorsey: It's the big new bridge," said Serge. "Takes you right across Lake What-the-Fuck." "Is that
All my life I have gone out on a limb, but I have turned the limb into a bridge, and there is cool, clear water flowing under.Holly Near Bridge Over Water Sayings By Holly Near: All my life I have gone out on a limb, but I have turned the
I took the sleeper out of Glasgow, and as the smelly old train bumped out of Central Station and across the Jamaica Street Bridge, I stared out at the orange halogen streetlamps reflected in the black water of the river Clyde. I gazed at the crumbling Victorian buildings that would soon be sandblasted and renovated into yuppie hutches. I watched the revelers and rascals traverse the shiny wet streets. I thought of the thrill and danger of my youth and the fear and frustration of my adult life thus far. I thought of the failure of my marriage and my failures as a man. I saw all this through my reflection in the nighttime window.
Down the tracks I went, hardly aware that I was going further south with every passing second.
Craig Ferguson Bridge Over Water Sayings By Craig Ferguson: I took the sleeper out of Glasgow, and as the smelly old train bumped out
Every morning I sit at the kitchen table over a tall glass of water swallowing pills. (So my hands won't shake.) (So my heart won't race.) (So my face won't thaw.) (So my blood won't mold.) (So the voices won't scream.) (So I don't reach for knives.) (So I keep out of the oven.) (So I eat every morsel.) (So the wine goes bitter.) (So I remember the laundry.) (So I remember to call.) (So I remember the name of each pill.) (So I remember the name of each sickness.) (So I keep my hands inside my hands.) (So the city won't rattle.) (So I don't weep on the bus.) (So I don't wander the guardrail.) (So the flashbacks go quiet.) (So the insomnia sleeps.) (So I don't jump at car horns.) (So I don't jump at cat-calls.) (So I don't jump a bridge.) (So I don't twitch.) (So I don't riot.) (So I don't slit a strange man's throat.)Jeanann Verlee Bridge Over Water Sayings By Jeanann Verlee: Every morning I sit at the kitchen table over a tall glass of water swallowing
The Thames Shouldered its way past Blackfriars Bridge, impatient with the ancient piers, no longer the passive stream that slid past Chelsea Marina, but a rush of ugly water that had scented the open sea and was ready to make a run for it.J.G. Ballard Bridge Over Water Sayings By J.G. Ballard: The Thames Shouldered its way past Blackfriars Bridge, impatient with the ancient piers, no longer

When I stepped onto the bridge over the Iowa River and stood looking out across the water, I knew I was home. I was wrong about that, as it turns out. And I know now that my certainty was based on a series of troubling misconceptions, but it would be years before I would lose the comfort that certainty gave me.Eula Biss Bridge Over Water Sayings By Eula Biss: When I stepped onto the bridge over the Iowa River and stood looking out across

It was Fidelma's favourite walk, a winding path by the river in the Castle grounds. The Castle with its turrets and ivied walls was a five-star hotel which attracted celebrities and regulars who came for the fishing and shooting.
