Doting Sayings By E.M. Hamill: His brothers accepted his fluid nature as something Darian simply was. He had been so His brothers accepted his fluid nature as something Darian simply was. He had been so all his life; suspended between male and female, one rising, the other ebbing without pattern or reason. The Queen, daughterless and doting, had gladly let her youngest son
wear gowns, bows, and curls far longer than appropriate, until his father had intervened with violent persuasion. At court, he now moved as a man. In private, he never stopped wearing gowns or ribbons when the softer she inside him waxed like the full moon. He allowed her complete rein. In truth, he no longer knew where he ended and she began. They were the same. — E.M. Hamill

Doting Sayings By Laura Abbot: The genesis of my interest in being a writer can be traced to fourth grade The genesis of my interest in being a writer can be traced to fourth grade when we listened to a radio production of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew and I asked the teacher if I could rewrite it for our class to present. Nothing like going head-to-head with the Bard, right?
I can still visualise the pages I filled creating this first "great" literary endeavor. Encouraged by teachers (and one doting grandmother), I went on to write reams of yearbook copy in high school and college and, then, to teach high school English. My "real" writing career didn't begin until I turned from education to the full-time pursuit of storytelling. — Laura Abbot

Doting Sayings By Martha Beck: As I obsess about my ancient problems, I feel more like I'm sinking in quicksand As I obsess about my ancient problems, I feel more like I'm sinking in quicksand than lighting a torch. I'm creating neither heat nor light, just the icky, perversely pleasurable squish of self-pity between my toes. My only defense is that I'm not the only one down here in the muck - our whole culture is doting on tales of personal tragedy. — Martha Beck

Doting Sayings By Colleen McCullough: It's not worth getting upset about, Mrs. Dominic. Down in the city they don't know It's not worth getting upset about, Mrs. Dominic. Down in the city they don't know how the other half lives, and they can afford the luxury of doting on their animals as if they were children. Out here it's different. You'll never see man, woman or child in need of help go ignored out here, yet in the city those same people who dote on their pets will completely ignore a cry of help from a human being. — Colleen McCullough

I've seen the way he looks at those he hates ... " He shook his head. "There are very few things my brother cares about, and even fewer people. — Victoria Schwab

Doting Sayings By Mary Shelley: Why did I not die? More miserable than man ever was before, why did I Why did I not die? More miserable than man ever was before, why did I not sink into forgetfulness and rest? Death snatches away many blooming children, the only hopes of their doting parents: how many brides and youthful lovers have been one day in the bloom of health and hope, and the next a prey for worms and the decay of the tomb! Of what materials was I made, that I could thus resist so many shocks, which, like the turning of the wheel, continually renewed the torture?
But I was doomed to live; — Mary Shelley
Doting Sayings By Lester Bangs: If the main reason we listen to music in the first place is to hear If the main reason we listen to music in the first place is to hear passion expressed- as i've believed all my life-then what good is this music going to prove to be? what does that say about us? what are we confirming in ourselves by doting on art that is emotionally neutral? and, simultaneously, what in ourselves might we be destroying or at least keeping down? — Lester Bangs

So true it is that nothing spreads more fast than Science, when rightly and generally cultivated. — John Dryden
Doting Sayings By Stacey May Fowles: The safe thing always is to run. To just assume you're too fucked up to The safe thing always is to run. To just assume you're too fucked up to do anything that remotely resembles normal. The good wife. The doting father. The safe thing to do is to be satisfied with being abnormal. To accept being fucked up. And to be alone in your abnormality and fucked-uppedness. To know that you are bad and alone and there's no fixing it or even wanting to. To not do the work. — Stacey May Fowles
Doting Sayings By Corey Ford: When a doting person gets down on all fours and plays with the dog's rubber When a doting person gets down on all fours and plays with the dog's rubber mouse, it only confuses the puppy and gives him a sense of insecurity.

For nought but provender; and when he's old, cashier'd:
Whip me such honest knaves. — William Shakespeare

Doting Sayings By Edward O. Wilson: The human mind is a product of the Pleistocene age, shaped by wildness that has The human mind is a product of the Pleistocene age, shaped by wildness that has all but disappeared. If we complete the destruction of nature, we will have succeeded in cutting ourselves off from the source of sanity itself. Hermetically sealed amidst our creations and bereft of those of the
Creation, the world then will reflect only the demented image of the mind imprisoned within itself. Can the mind doting on itself and its creations be sane? — Edward O. Wilson

Doting Sayings By Anthony Carmona: We all ran barefooted on the dusty roads in our past, but now the Emperor We all ran barefooted on the dusty roads in our past, but now the Emperor wears shoes, and it is our responsibility to ensure that the barefooted child and the doting mother are afforded a holistic environment to realise their dreams and ambitions. — Anthony Carmona

Doting Sayings By John Blumenthal: One aspect of Samantha's personality that drove me nuts was her tendency to reveal herself One aspect of Samantha's personality that drove me nuts was her tendency to reveal herself via literary allusions. She called it a quirk, but it was more of a compulsion. Her mother was Lady Macbeth; her father, Big Daddy. An uncle she liked was Mr. Micawber, a favorite governess, Jane Eyre; a doting professor, Mr. Chips.
This curious habit of hers quickly made the voyage from eccentric to bizarre when she began to invoke the names of literary characters to describe moments in our relationship. When she thought I was treating her rudely, she called me Wolf Larsen; if I was standoffish, I was Mr. Darcy; when I dressed too shabbily, I was Tom Joad.
Once, in bed, she yelled out the name Victor as she approached orgasm. I assumed she was referring to Victor Hugo because she'd been reading 'Les Miserables.'. It didn't really bother me that much though it was a little odd being with a woman who thought she was having sex with a dead French author. — John Blumenthal
Doting Sayings By Elizabeth Boyle: Felicity was in the process of unpacking her valise on the bed. "Then let us Felicity was in the process of unpacking her valise on the bed. "Then let us make sure no one else makes that mistake," she said, pulling out ribbons and laces, a set of fancy hair combs and a few cosmetic pots. "Nanny Tasha always said a lady's age should be a mystery." Miranda closed her eyes. Truly, she was starting to wonder about Lord Langley's choice of nannies for his daughters. Most of what the girls repeated from their dear caretakers sounded more like the advice of an experienced Cyprian, not that of a doting governess for small, impressionable children. Felicity — Elizabeth Boyle
Doting Sayings By George Bernard Shaw: There is a disease to which plays as well as men become liable with advancing There is a disease to which plays as well as men become liable with advancing years.

Doting Sayings By Sarah Caudwell: Eleanor was charming. That is to say, her manner seemed designed to merit that description: Eleanor was charming. That is to say, her manner seemed designed to merit that description: she displayed towards us a sort of girlish archness, such as a doting father might have found captivating in an only daughter at the age of eight. The effect was as of attempting to camouflage an armored tank by icing it with pink sugar: stratagem doomed to failure. — Sarah Caudwell
Doting Sayings By William Shakespeare: A grandma's name is little less in love than is the doting title of a A grandma's name is little less in love than is the doting title of a mother. — William Shakespeare
Doting Sayings By Jodi Picoult: Families were never what you wanted them to be. We all wanted what we couldn't Families were never what you wanted them to be. We all wanted what we couldn't have: the perfect child, the doting husband, the mother who wouldn't let go. We live in our grown-up dollhouses completely unaware that, at any moment, a hand might come in and change around everything we'd become accustomed to. — Jodi Picoult
Doting Sayings By Kaz Cooke: A controlling relationship can start with over-the-top romantic gestures and gifts, and great protestations of A controlling relationship can start with over-the-top romantic gestures and gifts, and great protestations of you 'being the only one' and their love being a special kind of 'you and me against the world', often disconcertingly early in a relationship. There may be a charm campaign aimed at you and even friends and family, your other potential allies and 'protectors'. Suddenly or gradually there are rules, or flashes of mystifying rage or sulking designed to modify your behaviour to what they want you to do. Then the 'nice' person reappears, and all is well, he's romantic and doting again, before the next flashpoints of anger or rage or sullen tension. This is not a 'return to the good times'. It's the classic cycle of abuse, recognised — Kaz Cooke
Doting Sayings By Karen Maezen Miller: Happiness is not a science, an art or an outcome. It can't be qualified, procured Happiness is not a science, an art or an outcome. It can't be qualified, procured or consumed. It's not invented, but comes naturally made from mud, honeysuckle, pitted olives, and doting grand dads ... it's what we are when we are utterly ourselves in unaffected ease. — Karen Maezen Miller
Doting Sayings By Edward O. Wilson: All my life I have placed great store in civility and good manners, practices I All my life I have placed great store in civility and good manners, practices I find scarce among the often hard-edged, badly socialized scientists with whom I associate. Tone of voice means a great deal to me in the course of debate. I despise the arrogance and doting self-regard so frequently found among the very bright. — Edward O. Wilson
Doting Sayings By Charlotte Bronte: My feelings towards it can only be paralleled by that of a doting parent towards My feelings towards it can only be paralleled by that of a doting parent towards an idiot child. — Charlotte Bronte
Doting Sayings By Ivana Milicevic: I've seen women who were nightmare party girls, who were just crazy, and then they I've seen women who were nightmare party girls, who were just crazy, and then they have a baby and this thing comes over them and changes them.

Doting Sayings By James Smythe: One of the pamphlets is called YOU, YOUR PARTNER AND THE MACHINE. She flicks through One of the pamphlets is called YOU, YOUR PARTNER AND THE MACHINE. She flicks through it, and it's full of pictures of loving couples where she cannot tell which one of them is vacant and which one is just doting. — James Smythe
Doting Sayings By Pamela Druckerman: a minimum, the toys are put away at night. Parents see doing this as a a minimum, the toys are put away at night. Parents see doing this as a healthy separation and a chance to clear their minds when the kids go to bed. Samia, my neighbor who during the day is the extremely doting mother of a two-year-old, tells me that when her daughter goes to bed, "I don't want to see any toys. . . . Her universe is in her room. — Pamela Druckerman
Doting Sayings By Philip Yancey: That is the kind of shocking accessibility conveyed in Jesus' word Abba. God may be That is the kind of shocking accessibility conveyed in Jesus' word Abba. God may be the Sovereign Lord of the Universe, but through his Son, God has made himself as approachable as any doting human father. — Philip Yancey
Doting Sayings By Patrick O'Brian: I was talking about children that have not been properly house-trained. Left to their own I was talking about children that have not been properly house-trained. Left to their own impulses and indulged by doting or careless parents almost all children are yahoos. Loud, selfish, cruel, unaffectionate, jealous, perpetually striving for attention, empty-headed, for ever prating or if words fail them simply bawling, their voices grown huge from daily practice: the very worst company in the world. But what I dislike even more than the natural child is the affected child, the hulking oaf of seven or eight that skips heavily about with her hands dangling in front of her
a little squirrel or bunny-rabbit
and prattling away in a baby's voice. — Patrick O'Brian
Doting Sayings By Timothy J. Keller: Where light leaves the affections behind, it ends in formality and or atheism; where affections Where light leaves the affections behind, it ends in formality and or atheism; where affections outrun light they sink into the bog of superstition, doting on images and pictures or the like. — Timothy J. Keller
Doting Sayings By Roald Dahl: Occasionally one comes across parents who take the opposite line, who show no interest at Occasionally one comes across parents who take the opposite line, who show no interest at all in their children, and these of course are far worse than the doting ones. — Roald Dahl
Doting Sayings By Antonella Gambotto-Burke: Other than his ex-wife and despite appearances with a series of cultivated blondes, Edward de Other than his ex-wife and despite appearances with a series of cultivated blondes, Edward de Bono has never publicly aligned himself with a woman. 'I'm looking for a fat, cross-eyed hunchback,' he explains, stifling a giggle. 'A prosthetic hump would do.' His delight evaporates when asked about his three grandchildren. 'Am I a doting grandfather?' He pauses. 'I'm a ... something grandfather, yes.' The fact that De Bono remains unperturbed by this lack betrays an emotionally austere childhood, and his passions for play, toys, and bad jokes tell of the same deprivation. — Antonella Gambotto-Burke
Doting Sayings By Jun'ichiro Tanizaki: When she treads on my grave and feels as if she's trampling on that doting When she treads on my grave and feels as if she's trampling on that doting old man's bones, my spirit will still be alive, feeling the whole weight of her body, feeling pain, feeling the fine-grained velvety smoothness of the soles of her feet. Even after I'm dead I'll be aware of that. I can't believe I won't. In the same way, Satsuko will be aware of the presence of my spirit, joyfully enduring her weight. Perhaps she may even hear my charred bones rattling together, chuckling, moaning, creaking. And that would by no means occur only when she was actually stepping on my grave. At the very thought of those Buddha's Footprints modeled after her own feet she would hear my bones wailing under the stone. Between sobs I would scream: It hurts! It hurts! ... Even though it hurts, I'm happy - I've never been more happy, I'm much, much happier than when I was alive! ... Trample harder! Harder! — Jun'ichiro Tanizaki

Lilith: No! Words of power!

[he looks to The Doctor for help]
The Doctor: 761390!
William Shakespeare: '761390! Banished like a tinker's cuss, I say to thee ... '
[he again looks to The Doctor]
The Doctor: Uh ...
[he looks to Martha]
Martha Jones: Expelliarmus!
The Doctor: Expelliarmus!
William Shakespeare: 'Expelliarmus!'
The Doctor: Good old JK! — Gareth Roberts
