I thought he did that while quite improperly asked you to spend Sunday
It is in the stomach of plants that development begins, and ends in the circles of the universe. 'Tis a long scale from the gorilla to the gentleman,
from the gorilla to Plato, Newton, Shakespeare,
to the sanctities of religion, the refinements of legislation, the summit of science, art, and poetry. The beginnings are slow and infirm, but it is an always accelerated march.
Ralph Waldo Emerson Gentleman Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: It is in the stomach of plants that development begins, and ends in the circles
This is beautiful." Eugenie ran her fingers along a massive mahogany sideboard, on the top of which rested a red velvet sash with fine embroidery on it and, on top of the sash, a silver dagger.

I am truly an idiot. I should have bargained with a marriage proposal before freeing you." She leaned her forehead against the rung of the ladder, still shaking too much to trust herself.

For the perfect gentleman was out there somewhere, waiting for her. He would be nothing like Father, he would be an artist, with an artist's sense of beauty and possibility, who didn't care two whits about bricks and bugs. Who was open and easy to read, whose passions and dreams brought light to his eyes. And he would love her, and only her.Kate Morton Gentleman Sayings By Kate Morton: For the perfect gentleman was out there somewhere, waiting for her. He would be nothing
Tyler wrote:
Dearest Marguerite:
You've taught me a great deal about stillness. About the many things that can drift into your mind and heart when you shut down the barricades created by noise. Unexpected gifts of insight, revelation and wisdom. < ... >
But you taught me that love is found in stillness. It is the space between objects. It's the star you can't see if you look directly at it in the night sky, but if you look away, look forward, you see it in your peripheral vision, beside you, watching over you. If you lie down on the earth it's there, beneath you, cradling you.< ... >
You're my angel, my tormentor, my woman, my love.
God, Tyler is such a gentleman! He is gentle AND a gentleman.
Joey W. Hill Gentleman Sayings By Joey W. Hill: Tyler wrote: Dearest Marguerite: You've taught me a great deal about stillness. About the many
Like this, Rook." Ford's soft words vibrate into me. "I like you. I'd like to show you how much, actually.

Huss: Like this, Rook." Ford's soft words vibrate into me. "I like you. I'd like to

I lied," I said ...
"I know it," he said.
"Then do something about it. Do anything, just so it's something."
"I cant," he said.
"There aint anything to do? Not anything?"
"I didn't say that," Grandfather said. "I said I couldn't. You can."
"What?" I said. "How can I forget it? Tell me how to."
"You cant," he said. "Nothing is ever forgotten. Nothing is ever lost. It's too valuable."
"Then what can I do?"
"Live with it," Grandfather said.
"Live with it? You mean, forever? For the rest of my life? Not ever to get rid of it? Never? I cant. Dont you see that I cant?"
"Yes you can," he said. "You will. A gentleman always does. A gentleman can live through anything. He faces anything. A gentleman accepts the responsibility of his actions and bears the burden of their consequences, even when he did not himself instigate them but only acquiesced to them, didn't say No though he knew he should.

About Thomas Hobbes: He was 40 years old before he looked on geometry; which happened accidentally. Being in a gentleman's library, Euclid's Elements lay open, and "twas the 47 El. libri I" [Pythagoras' Theorem]. He read the proposition "By God", sayd he, "this is impossible:" So he reads the demonstration of it, which referred him back to such a proposition; which proposition he read. That referred him back to another, which he also read. Et sic deinceps, that at last he was demonstratively convinced of that truth. This made him in love with geometry.John Aubrey Gentleman Sayings By John Aubrey: About Thomas Hobbes: He was 40 years old before he looked on geometry; which happened
He was undoubtedly a gentleman of honorable pedigree and of many accomplishments, but two of his accomplishments emerged from all the rest. He had a talent for appearing when he was not wanted and a talent for disappearing when he was wanted, especially when he was wanted by the police. It may be added that his disappearances were more dangerous than his appearances.G.K. Chesterton Gentleman Sayings By G.K. Chesterton: He was undoubtedly a gentleman of honorable pedigree and of many accomplishments, but two of

I've always been very chauvinistic, even in my boy-obsessed days. But I was always a gentleman. I alwaysd treated my boys like real ladies. Always escorted them properly and, in fact, I suppose if I were a lot older - like 40 or 50 - I'd be a wonderful sugar daddy to some little queen down in Kensington. I'd have a houseboy named Richard to order around.David Bowie Gentleman Sayings By David Bowie: I've always been very chauvinistic, even in my boy-obsessed days. But I was always a

And suddenly she was so strange he couldn't believe he knew her at all. He was in someone else's house, like those other jokes people told of the gentleman, drunk, coming home late late at night, unlocking the wrong door, entering a wrong room, and bedding with a stranger and getting up early and going to work and neither of them the wiser.Ray Bradbury Gentleman Sayings By Ray Bradbury: And suddenly she was so strange he couldn't believe he knew her at all. He
Being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. It's not about winning. It's about you and your relationship with yourself, your family and your friends. Being perfect is about being able to look your friends in the eye and know that you didn't let them down because you told them the truth. And that truth is you did everything you could. There wasn't one more thing you could've done. Can you live in that moment as best you can, with clear eyes, and love in your heart, with joy in your heart? If you can do that gentleman - you're perfect!Billy Bob Thornton Gentleman Sayings By Billy Bob Thornton: Being perfect is not about that scoreboard out there. It's not about winning. It's about

In this real world of sweat and dirt, it seems to me that when a view of things is 'noble,' that ought to count as presumption against its truth, and as a philosophic disqualification. The prince of darkness may be a gentleman, as we are told he is, but whatever the God of earth and heaven is, he can surely be no gentleman.William James Gentleman Sayings By William James: In this real world of sweat and dirt, it seems to me that when a

Already even politics ceases to be the business of a gentleman ; and it is possible that one day it may be found to be so vulgar as to be brought, like all party literature and daily literature, under the rubric : Prostitution of the intellect.Friedrich Nietzsche Gentleman Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: Already even politics ceases to be the business of a gentleman ; and it is

The managers and superintendents and clerks of Packingtown were all recruited from another class, and never from the workers; they scorned the workers, the very meanest of them. A poor devil of a bookkeeper who had been working in Durham's for twenty years at a salary of six dollars a week, and might work there for twenty more and do no better, would yet consider himself a gentleman, as far removed as the poles from the most skilled worker on the killing beds; he would dress differently, and live in another part of the town, and come to work at a different hour of the day, and in every way make sure that he never rubbed elbows with a laboring man. Perhaps this was due to the repulsiveness of the work; at any rate, the people who worked with their hands were a class apart, and were made to feel it.Upton Sinclair Gentleman Sayings By Upton Sinclair: The managers and superintendents and clerks of Packingtown were all recruited from another class, and
What king has he not taught state, as Talma taught Napoleon? What maiden has not found him finer than her delicacy? What lover has he not outloved? What sage has he not outseen?

What maiden has not
That guy is trying to be a gentleman, because as much as he wanted you to come back to his place and as much as he wants to kiss you-you're hurt, I'm afraid you don't actually want me hereCora Carmack Gentleman Sayings By Cora Carmack: That guy is trying to be a gentleman, because as much as he wanted you
Femininity and masculinity are social constructs. Female and male are biological. We don't have to learn to be men or women but we do have to learn to be ladies and gentlemen.Rita Mae Brown Gentleman Sayings By Rita Mae Brown: Femininity and masculinity are social constructs. Female and male are biological. We don't have to
So there is nothing inherently subversive about pleasure. On the contrary, as Karl Marx recognized, it is a thoroughly aristocratic creed. The traditional English gentleman was so averse to unpleasurable labour that he could not even be bothered to articulate properly. Hence the patrician slur and drawl, Aristotle believed that being human was something you had to get good at through constant practice, like learning Catalan or playing the bagpipes; whereas if the English gentleman was virtuous, as he occasionally deigned to be, his goodness was purely spontaneous. Moral effort was for merchants and clerksTerry Eagleton Gentleman Sayings By Terry Eagleton: So there is nothing inherently subversive about pleasure. On the contrary, as Karl Marx recognized,
I was far from perfect, and no one would ever accuse me of being a gentleman, but cruel didn't sit well with me.Lisa Kessler Gentleman Sayings By Lisa Kessler: I was far from perfect, and no one would ever accuse me of being a
Or was the entire idea of the "gentleman" a farce?Tiffany Reisz Gentleman Sayings By Tiffany Reisz: Or was the entire idea of the "gentleman" a farce?
Syn may be too much of a gentleman to hit you, but I'm not. I'm not only ashamed to call you human, I'm completely disgusted that we share the same gender. You want to know the truth? The only filth in this room is you, and you're the one who doesn't deserve to breathe our air. Decent's got nothing to do with birthright. It's all about actions, and trust me, you're the lowest form I've ever met and I've taken in the worst scum imaginable. But I'd rather sit at the table with them than you any day. (Shahara to Mara)Sherrilyn Kenyon Gentleman Sayings By Sherrilyn Kenyon: Syn may be too much of a gentleman to hit you, but I'm not. I'm
A gentleman is just a patient wolf.Lara Turner Gentleman Sayings By Lara Turner: A gentleman is just a patient wolf.
Shaw grinned again, wishing mightily that he and she were alone by the fire. "I never claimed to be much of a gentleman. But whether you tote about a parasol or not, you are every inch a lady. Quite possibly the finest I've ever met."
"Goodness. If you continue saying such things, I'll begin to think you're smitten with me."
"I'd describe it more as being clubbed into submission," he murmured, aware both that her palm had come to rest just over his heart, and that his men and the Mayfair mob across the fire pit could see it. "But yes, I am rather smitten with you.
Suzanne Enoch Gentleman Sayings By Suzanne Enoch: Shaw grinned again, wishing mightily that he and she were alone by the fire. "I

In those days he seemed to be a nice old gentleman, and his existence always served practical purposes, such as when I was accused of misconduct, for then I could shift the blame to him by saying, "Old Tacet did it." Naturally, no one would believe me, this being a last-ditch effort to avoid the hairbrush. If my mother were alive today, she'd laugh at me for still fantasizing - yet it's the truth.
Even now, whenever necessary, I still summon forth the old geezer - in theater programs, for example, to credit him for costumes that I've designed, ones for which I prefer not getting the hook. Yes, he's another of my names: the unlikely but lovely and perfectly logical
Paul Taylor Gentleman Sayings By Paul Taylor: In those days he seemed to be a nice old gentleman, and his existence always

A gentleman in Mr Norell's position with a fine house and a large estate will always be of interest to his neighbors and, unless those neighbors are very stupid, they will always contrive to know a little of what he does.Susanna Clarke Gentleman Sayings By Susanna Clarke: A gentleman in Mr Norell's position with a fine house and a large estate will

A gentleman should never take his hat off with a flourish.Emily Post Gentleman Sayings By Emily Post: A gentleman should never take his hat off with a flourish.
For millions of years flowers have been producing thorns. For millions of years sheep have been eating them all the same. And it's not serious, trying to understand why flowers go to such trouble to produce thorns that are good for nothing? It's not important, the war between the sheep and the flowers? It's no more serious and more important than the numbers that fat red gentleman is adding up? Suppose I happen to know a unique flower, one that exists nowhere in the world except on my planet, one that a little sheep can wipe out in a single bite one morning, just like that, without even realizing what he'd doing - that isn't important? If someone loves a flower of which just one example exists among all the millions and millions of stars, that's enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars. He tells himself 'My flower's up there somewhere ... ' But if the sheep eats the flower, then for him it's as if, suddenly, all the stars went out. And that isn't important?Antoine De Saint-Exupery Gentleman Sayings By Antoine De Saint-Exupery: For millions of years flowers have been producing thorns. For millions of years sheep have
You are a bit like that painting, Minnow. Remember how lovingly and carefully formed you are. Your thoughts, your talents, your memories, your mistakes ... they all make the complete canvas of you. Even though others may mistake your worth, you must never value yourself any less.Michelle Marcos Gentleman Sayings By Michelle Marcos: You are a bit like that painting, Minnow. Remember how lovingly and carefully formed you
The honor of a gentleman demands the inviolability of his word, and the incorruptibility of his principles. He is the descendent of the knight, the crusader; he is the defender of the defenseless and the champion of justice
or he is not a gentleman.
Emily Post Gentleman Sayings By Emily Post: The honor of a gentleman demands the inviolability of his word, and the incorruptibility of
The Devil is right at home. The Devil, the Devil himself, is right in the house. And the Devil came here yesterday. Yesterday the Devil came here. Right here. And it smells of sulphur still today. Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the president of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as the Devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world. Truly. As the owner of the world.Hugo Chavez Gentleman Sayings By Hugo Chavez: The Devil is right at home. The Devil, the Devil himself, is right in the

A gentleman with a pug nose is a contradiction in terms.Edgar Allan Poe Gentleman Sayings By Edgar Allan Poe: A gentleman with a pug nose is a contradiction in terms.
I never cheat or steal. Also, I never wear a top-hat with a sack coat or munch bananas in public on the streets, because a gentleman does not do those things either. I would as soon do the one as the other sort of thing
it is all a matter of harmony and good taste.
H.P. Lovecraft Gentleman Sayings By H.P. Lovecraft: I never cheat or steal. Also, I never wear a top-hat with a sack coat
in the midst of general prosperity a gentleman with an ignoble, or rather with a reactionary and ironical, countenance were to arise and, putting his arms akimbo, say to us all: "I say, gentleman, hadn't we better kick over the whole show and scatter rationalism to the winds, simply to send these logarithms to the devil, and to enable us to live once more at our own sweet foolish will!" That again would not matter, but what is annoying is that he would be sure to find followers--such is the nature of man.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Gentleman Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: in the midst of general prosperity a gentleman with an ignoble, or rather with a
I am not sure but I should betake myself in extremities to the liberal divinities of Greece, rather than to my country's God. Jehovah, though with us he has acquired new attributes, is more absolute and unapproachable, but hardly more divine, than Jove. He is not so much of a gentleman, not so gracious and catholic, he does not exert so intimate and genial an influence on nature, as many a god of the Greeks.Henry David Thoreau Gentleman Sayings By Henry David Thoreau: I am not sure but I should betake myself in extremities to the liberal divinities

It is the mark of a gentleman to be moderate in the use of wine.Athenaeus Gentleman Sayings By Athenaeus: It is the mark of a gentleman to be moderate in the use of wine.
Who first, upon sensing the backward rush of memory said to signal the moment of death, was able to telegraph this apprehension to the family gathered around? Maybe the original gentleman descended from ape said the equivalent of "falling out of tree" to his common-law ape wife, and she interpreted his words as "just as he left for the dusty world beyond, his whole life passed before his eyes. Then he hit the ground." After all, falling out of the tree is the first and the last thing we do.Gregory Maguire Gentleman Sayings By Gregory Maguire: Who first, upon sensing the backward rush of memory said to signal the moment of
Among many who sought to deter me, was one dear old Christian gentleman, whose crowning argument always was, "The cannibals! you will be eaten by cannibals!" At last I replied, "Mr. Dickson, you are advanced in years now, and your own prospect is soon to be laid in the grave, there to be eaten by worms; I confess to you, that if I can but live and die serving and honouring the Lord Jesus, it will make no difference to me whether I am eaten by cannibals or by worms."John Gibson Paton Gentleman Sayings By John Gibson Paton: Among many who sought to deter me, was one dear old Christian gentleman, whose crowning
When I was on my way to the podium a gentleman stopped me and said I was as good a politician as I was an actor. What a cheap shot.Arnold Schwarzenegger Gentleman Sayings By Arnold Schwarzenegger: When I was on my way to the podium a gentleman stopped me and said
I knew a young lady of the last "romantic" generation who after some years of an enigmatic passion for a gentleman, whom she might quite easily have married at any moment, invented insuperable obstacles to their union, and ended by throwing herself one stormy night into a rather deep and rapid river from a high bank, almost a precipice, and so perished, entirely to satisfy her own caprice, and to be like Shakespeare's Ophelia. Indeed, if this precipice, a chosen and favourite spot of hers, had been less picturesque, if there had been a prosaic flat bank in its place, most likely the suicide would never have taken place.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Gentleman Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: I knew a young lady of the last "romantic" generation who after some years of
After a long time, one small hand moved, slowly, tentatively, tracing the feathers falling around her, stroking the black slashes along one huge wing. She didn't ask where he'd gotten them, didn't ask why they mimicked the marks on his shoulder. She didn't ask, just kept running her soft fingers through the down, along the spines ...
"How long will they last?"
"A few hours," he said hoarsely. He should tell her, he thought, that the feathers weren't just a projection. That for the moment for however long the Irin's essence held out, they were an innate, physical part of him. And that her fingers stroking along the marks felt just like they once had, moving over his scars. He ought to tell her, ought to ask her to stop. It's what a gentleman would do, he knew that. But then he was half demon. And tonight, he thought maybe he'd just go with that.
"They're nice," she murmured, pulling one around her.
"Yes." One hand tightened in her thick soft hair. "Yes.
Karen Chance Gentleman Sayings By Karen Chance: After a long time, one small hand moved, slowly, tentatively, tracing the feathers falling around
There must be something very comprehensive in this phrase of 'Never mind,' for we do not recollect to have ever witnessed a quarrel in the street, at a theatre, public room, or elsewhere, in which it has not been the standard reply to all belligerent inquiries. 'Do you call yourself a gentleman, sir?' - 'Never mind, sir.' 'Did I offer to say anything to the young woman, sir?' - 'Never mind, sir.' 'Do you want your head knocked up against that wall, sir?' - 'Never mind, sir.' It is observable, too, that there would appear to be some hidden taunt in this universal 'Never mind,' which rouses more indignation in the bosom of the individual addressed, than the most lavish abuse could possibly awaken.Charles Dickens Gentleman Sayings By Charles Dickens: There must be something very comprehensive in this phrase of 'Never mind,' for we do

The best thing about Sachin Tendulkar is that he's completely rooted, down to earth, and a thorough gentleman. He's probably the best thing to have happened to Indian cricket and maybe Indian sport as a whole.Sania Mirza Gentleman Sayings By Sania Mirza: The best thing about Sachin Tendulkar is that he's completely rooted, down to earth, and
The funny thing is that my husband couldn't be sweeter. He looks like this bad boy. He's got tattoos and earrings and a mohawk, but when you talk to him and he's around you, he's such a gentleman. He holds doors for ladies. He pulls out chairs. He cooks. He cleans.Malin Akerman Gentleman Sayings By Malin Akerman: The funny thing is that my husband couldn't be sweeter. He looks like this bad
Evelyn was followed in by a sour-faced woman with long, glamorous dark hair and a stern-looking gentleman in a tuxedo who looked just like Julian, but with less hair. They both looked as though they might buy the auditorium just to burn it to the ground. Even in this crowd they seemed assuredly a cut above the rest.Kristopher Jansma Gentleman Sayings By Kristopher Jansma: Evelyn was followed in by a sour-faced woman with long, glamorous dark hair and a
Being a gentleman is a worthy goal.Orlando Bloom Gentleman Sayings By Orlando Bloom: Being a gentleman is a worthy goal.
I felt an inexpressible relief, a soothing conviction of protection and security, when I knew that there was a stranger in the room, an individual not belonging to Gateshead, and not related to Mrs. Reed. Turning from Bessie (though her presence was far less obnoxious to me than that of Abbot, for instance, would have been), I scrutinised the face of the gentleman: I knew him; it was Mr. Lloyd, an apothecary, sometimes called in by Mrs. Reed when the servants were ailing: for herself and the children she employed a physician.Charlotte Bronte Gentleman Sayings By Charlotte Bronte: I felt an inexpressible relief, a soothing conviction of protection and security, when I knew
There is always a thought of marriage between a single female and a personable gentleman, if not in his mind, quite certainly in hers.Georgette Heyer Gentleman Sayings By Georgette Heyer: There is always a thought of marriage between a single female and a personable gentleman,
So is blurred
so is blurred
in me
what white-haired gentleman
separated once and for all
and said
this is the subject

we fall asleep
with one hand under our head
and with the other in a mound of planets

our feet abandon us
and taste the earth
with their tiny roots
which next morning
we tear out painfully
Zbigniew Herbert Gentleman Sayings By Zbigniew Herbert: So is blurred so is blurred in me what white-haired gentleman separated once and for

Once upon a time, in a faraway land, lived a young princess who awaited a prince who would give her everything she ever dreamed of... love, passion, loyalty. He'd be the sweetest, kindest, most heartwarming gentleman a girl could ever ask for. And he'd be perfect.
