I laughed. So, let me get this straight. You slayed the dragon, jumped over the moat, climbed the tower of the evil King's castle, saved the princes, and rode off with her into sunset aka Shadow land. Why, you're my knight in shining armour.Jayde Scott Get Off My Land Sayings By Jayde Scott: I laughed. So, let me get this straight. You slayed the dragon, jumped over the
I lie on the floor, washed by nothing and hanging on. I cry at night. I am afraid of hearing voices, or a voice. I have come to the edge, of the land. I could get pushed over.Margaret Atwood Get Off My Land Sayings By Margaret Atwood: I lie on the floor, washed by nothing and hanging on. I cry at night.
If there's a disaster, do you go over to your neighbor's house with: a) a covered dish or b) a shotgun? It's game theory. If you believe your neighbor is coming over with a shotgun, you'd be an idiot to pick a); if she believes the same thing about you, you can bet she's not going to choose a) either. The way to get to a) is to do a) even if you think your neighbor will pick b). Sometimes she'll point her gun at you and tell you to get off her land, but if she was only holding the gun because she thought you'd have one, then she'll put on the safety and you can have a potluck.Cory Doctorow Get Off My Land Sayings By Cory Doctorow: If there's a disaster, do you go over to your neighbor's house with: a) a
As soon as we had the music arranged on our stands, Conductor Li tapped his baton on the lectern and called us to attention. "Quiet please, comrades! And as we play just think of the Long March," he said. "I will be at the front, like Chairman Mao. I will beat the time. Try to keep up. If you get lost, skip a few pages. Hopefully, the rest of us will pass your way eventually... The first movement sounded like nothing less than a full-scale military retreat. We were ambushed by missing pages of score, by an impulsive feint by the cellists and double basses, and by a flautist who turned two pages rather than one and played along happily in no man's land for a dozen or so bars until he was rapped on the head with the end of a clarinet (pg 325)John Sinclair Get Off My Land Sayings By John Sinclair: As soon as we had the music arranged on our stands, Conductor Li tapped his
We must get out of the banged-up century, some said, out of this cheating, murderous century of riot and secret death, of scrabbling for public land and damn well getting them by any means.John Steinbeck Get Off My Land Sayings By John Steinbeck: We must get out of the banged-up century, some said, out of this cheating, murderous
The balance and patience factors are much more critical in surfing than they are in snowboarding ... if you're out surfing serious waves and you wipe out, you don't land on soft snow. It's usually either very sharp coral, or you get raked across the beach gravel and sand while you're tumbling underwater.Frederick Lenz Get Off My Land Sayings By Frederick Lenz: The balance and patience factors are much more critical in surfing than they are in
My grandfather ran off the V-2 rocket film a dozen times and then hoped that someday our cities would open up more and let the green and the land and the wilderness in more, to remind people that we're allotted a little space on earth and that we survive in that wilderness that can take back what it has given, as easily as blowing its breath on us or sending the sea to tell us we are not so big. When we forget how close the wilderness is in the night, my grandpa said, someday it will come in and get us for we will have forgotten how terrible and real it can be. You see?Ray Bradbury Get Off My Land Sayings By Ray Bradbury: My grandfather ran off the V-2 rocket film a dozen times and then hoped that
I write in the mornings, in the bright daylight. But I get most of my good ideas after the sun has gone down and the dark is on the land.Stephen King Get Off My Land Sayings By Stephen King: I write in the mornings, in the bright daylight. But I get most of my
America can restore its strengths as the world-respected land of opportunity by returning to open-society principles. An open society invests in people and new ideas, rewards talent and hard work, values dialogue and learns from dissent, operates to high standards with transparent information, looks for common ground, sees problems as opportunities for creative change, and encourages those who are fortunate to help others get the same chance, because service is the highest ideal. With such standards in mind, America the Beautiful can return to its admired role as America the Principled.Rosabeth Moss Kanter Get Off My Land Sayings By Rosabeth Moss Kanter: America can restore its strengths as the world-respected land of opportunity by returning to open-society
Well," said Mrs. Wiggins at last, "I guess they're gone. They won't drown - that's a comfort. They'll float down and land somewhere, but the current is pretty swift, and they may go miles before they can get ashore.Walter R. Brooks Get Off My Land Sayings By Walter R. Brooks: Well," said Mrs. Wiggins at last, "I guess they're gone. They won't drown - that's
I want to take their money and let them build their ship and get off my land. That's all I want."
"Good to know," said a voice above her head.
Elliot and Dee looked up, and there, shadowed against the light from the swinging sun-lamps, stood Kai.
Diana Peterfreund Get Off My Land Sayings By Diana Peterfreund: I want to take their money and let them build their ship and get off
To say that certainly America was very lucky to get a large amount of land, and the native Indians were extremely unlucky to have white men coming over here, is one thing. But to say that the whole of the American prosperity was based on exploiting the indigenous population would be a great mistake.Amartya Sen Get Off My Land Sayings By Amartya Sen: To say that certainly America was very lucky to get a large amount of land,
One of the things that makes you feel good is to get out into nature - go walking, go hiking, go swimming in the ocean, or wherever you live, in a river or a lake, experience the beauty of America, experience how America is such a sacred place. Everywhere you go in this land, our people have been there and they have said, This place is sacred.Charles Alexander Eastman Get Off My Land Sayings By Charles Alexander Eastman: One of the things that makes you feel good is to get out into nature
In 'Tarahumara' land, there was no crime, war or theft. There was no corruption, obesity, drug addiction, greed, wife-beating, child abuse, heart disease, high blood pressure, or carbon emissions. They didn't get diabetes, or depressed, or even old: 50-year-olds outran teenagers.Christopher McDougall Get Off My Land Sayings By Christopher McDougall: In 'Tarahumara' land, there was no crime, war or theft. There was no corruption, obesity,
If you are in love with your job, you never get tired, you never want to stop!

[Wind energy] takes a very large footprint on the land, five to 10 times what you'd use for nuclear, and typically to get one gigawatt of electricity is on the order of 250 square miles of wind farm.Stewart Brand Get Off My Land Sayings By Stewart Brand: [Wind energy] takes a very large footprint on the land, five to 10 times what
Christ is still in Christmas, and for one brief season the secular world broadcasts the message of Christ over every radio station and television channel in the land. Never does the church get as much free air time as during the Christmas season.R.C. Sproul Get Off My Land Sayings By R.C. Sproul: Christ is still in Christmas, and for one brief season the secular world broadcasts the
Americans are finally realizing that once you lose land, you can't get it back.Christine Todd Whitman Get Off My Land Sayings By Christine Todd Whitman: Americans are finally realizing that once you lose land, you can't get it back.
THOUGHTS ON RIDE HOME: If my levels get too high, if they talk too much, then put me out of my misery and burn me on a pyre, that's how I want to go. Don't bother with a backhoe to try and dig the hole. Take down the trees to build the pyre off our land. Let the Newfoundlands have my bones. Let them walk the property drooling with my femur between their massive jaws. I am renewable energy.Yannick Murphy Get Off My Land Sayings By Yannick Murphy: THOUGHTS ON RIDE HOME: If my levels get too high, if they talk too much,
Every time a boy falls off a tricycle, every time a black cat has gray kittens, every time someone stubs a toe, every time there's a murder or a fire or the marines land in Nicaragua, the police and the newspapers holler 'get Capone.'Al Capone Get Off My Land Sayings By Al Capone: Every time a boy falls off a tricycle, every time a black cat has gray
I do still get shocked every once in a while when I catch my reflection when I'm walking past a glass building, but it's in my mind about getting older and finding out what I'm going to look like as it unfolds - or as it folds, depending on where the marks and scars land.Dave Matthews Get Off My Land Sayings By Dave Matthews: I do still get shocked every once in a while when I catch my reflection
A pretty woman is a Christmas tree,' my mother told me in the airport. This fella is hanging things on my branches as his gaze sweeps from my face all the way down my body to my hips and then back to my face. Ideas fly from his widened eyes and land on me like teeny, decorative burdens. He is giving me shyness, maybe, some book smarts, and a certain yielding sweetness in bed. The oil-slick eyes get me, and I find myself hanging a few ornaments myself, giving him deft hands and a sense of humor.Joshilyn Jackson Get Off My Land Sayings By Joshilyn Jackson: A pretty woman is a Christmas tree,' my mother told me in the airport. This
That's the beauty of country music - you have to get out there and earn it and work hard. And when you're on the road with big name acts, you realize there's no easy way to the 'Promised Land' in this business.Luke Bryan Get Off My Land Sayings By Luke Bryan: That's the beauty of country music - you have to get out there and earn
Yule is supposed to be a celebration and a consolation, a moment of warm brightness in the heart of winter, a time to eat because you know that the lean times are coming when food will be scarce and ice locks the land, and a time to be happy and get drunk and behave irresponsibly and wake up the next morning wondering if you will ever feel well again, but the West Saxons handed the feast to the priests who made it as joyous as a funeral.Bernard Cornwell Get Off My Land Sayings By Bernard Cornwell: Yule is supposed to be a celebration and a consolation, a moment of warm brightness
They say you never forget your first glimpse of Gehenna. Over the tall buildings the sky swirls with orange and red, true titian, a feature of the unique atmosphere. Of course that same air would kill human beings; hence they built the entire city inside a dome. Eternal sunset, that's why the place is so wild. You know the feeling you get, just before full dark? Sundown makes you feel like the world burgeons with possibility, and that's Gehenna for you.
Like any other romantic notion, it's based on bullshit, of course. Gehenna isn't the land of eternal sunset and infinite potential. The gas in the atmosphere just makes it impossible to see the sun.
Ann Aguirre Get Off My Land Sayings By Ann Aguirre: They say you never forget your first glimpse of Gehenna. Over the tall buildings the
For West is where we all plan to go some day. It is where you go when the land gives out and the old-field pines encroach. It is where you go when you get the letter saying: Flee, all is discovered. It is where you go when you look down at the blade in your hand and the blood on it. It is where you go when you are told that you are a bubble on the tide of empire. It is where you go when you hear that thar's gold in them-thar hills. It is where you go to grow up with the country. It is where you go to spend your old age. Or it is just where you go.Robert Penn Warren Get Off My Land Sayings By Robert Penn Warren: For West is where we all plan to go some day. It is where you
What I wanted was to get away. But the moon was too far beyond, and there were white bits under me, where the flesh was shredded off and the bone gleamed that famed ivory, and those below cowered and, if they were not quick enough, were spattered in blood. Then came the jolt, as of a fall, and I saw the leg was caught in an ungainly way in the smaller branches of a mutamba tree, the foot hooked, long like that infamous fruit.Tsitsi Dangarembga Get Off My Land Sayings By Tsitsi Dangarembga: What I wanted was to get away. But the moon was too far beyond, and
Make sure when you fall you land on your back if you can see you can get up.Les Brown Get Off My Land Sayings By Les Brown: Make sure when you fall you land on your back if you can see you
The trouble with most forms of transport, he thought, is basically one of them not being worth all the bother. On Earth - when there had been an Earth, before it was demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass - the problem had been with cars. The disadvantages involved in pulling lots of black sticky slime from out of the ground where it had been safely hidden out of harm's way, turning it into tar to cover the land with, smoke to fill the air with and pouring the rest into the sea, all seemed to outweigh the advantages of being able to get more quickly from one place to another - particularly when the place you arrived at had probably become, as a result of this, very similar to the place you had left, i.e. covered with tar, full of smoke and short of fish.Douglas Adams Get Off My Land Sayings By Douglas Adams: The trouble with most forms of transport, he thought, is basically one of them not
Vik?"
The little metallic bird postured on the windowsill, eyeing him coldly. Vik's paint was iridescent and glossed-something the mecha had never liked, since he said it made him look like a girlie bird. "I'm surprised you remember my name." Vik paused before he added an acerbic, "Asshole."
Syn laughed as he rolled away from Shahara. "You prickly little shit, get over here."
Vik swooped in to land between the two of them on the bed. He burst apart, shifting from bird form to that of a more traditional mechbot. With his hand, he smacked Syn in the arm. "I thought you were coming back for me."
"I tried. I really did, but by the time I could, I figured you'd be gone."
Vik hissed then looked at Shahara. "He lie to you like that?"
-Syn & Vik
Sherrilyn Kenyon Get Off My Land Sayings By Sherrilyn Kenyon: Vik?"The little metallic bird postured on the windowsill, eyeing him coldly. Vik's paint was iridescent
The bill then says if the Senate does not act, then H.R. 1 (the House-passed bill that cuts $61 billion) will be the law of the land. In addition to that, it says that if all else fails, and the Senate brings about a shutdown, then members should not get their pay.Eric Cantor Get Off My Land Sayings By Eric Cantor: The bill then says if the Senate does not act, then H.R. 1 (the House-passed
Why?" I asked softly. The word was carried away on the wind, but he heard.
"Because I want you."
I gave him a sad smile, wondering if we'd meet again in the land of the dead. "Wrong answer," I told him.
I let go.
[ ... ]
I looked him in the eye. "I will always love you."
Then I plunged the stake into his chest.
It wasn't as precise a blow as I would have liked, not with the skilled way he was dodging. I struggled to get the stake in deep enough to his heart, unsure if I could do it from this angle. Then, his struggles stopped. His eyes stared at me, stunned, and his lips parted, almost into a smile, albeit a grisly and pained one.
"That's what I was supposed to say ... " he gasped out.
Richelle Mead Get Off My Land Sayings By Richelle Mead: Why?" I asked softly. The word was carried away on the wind, but he heard."Because
Nothing can be surprising any more or impossible or miraculous, now that Zeus, father of the Olympians has made night out of noonday, hiding the bright sunlight, and ... fear has come upon mankind. After this, men can believe anything, expect anything. Don't any of you be surprised in future if land beasts change places with dolphins and go to live in their salty pastures, and get to like the sounding waves of the sea more than the land, while the dolphins prefer the mountains.Archilochus Get Off My Land Sayings By Archilochus: Nothing can be surprising any more or impossible or miraculous, now that Zeus, father of
Is something a friend once told me. She said that every single one of us at birth is given an emotional acre all our own. You get one, your awful Uncle Phil gets one, I get one, Tricia Nixon gets one, everyone gets one. And as long as you don't hurt anyone, you really get to do with your acre as you please. You can plant fruit trees or flowers or alphabetized rows of vegetables, or nothing at all. If you want your acre to look like a giant garage sale, or an auto-wrecking yard, that's what you get to do with it. There's a fence around your acre, though, with a gate, and if people keep coming onto your land and sliming it or trying to get you to do what they think is right, you get to ask them to leave. And they have to go, because this is your acre.Anne Lamott Get Off My Land Sayings By Anne Lamott: Is something a friend once told me. She said that every single one of us
Sometimes it's like watching a wasp land on a stinging nettle: someone's going to get stung and you don't care.Terry Pratchett Get Off My Land Sayings By Terry Pratchett: Sometimes it's like watching a wasp land on a stinging nettle: someone's going to get
The minute you land in New Orleans, something wet and dark leaps on you and starts humping you like a swamp dog in heat, and the only way to get that aspect of New Orleans off you is to eat it off. That means beignets and crayfish bisque and jambalaya, it means shrimp remoulade, pecan pie, and red beans with rice, it means elegant pompano au papillote, funky file z'herbes, and raw oysters by the dozen, it means grillades for breakfast, a po' boy with chowchow at bedtime, and tubs of gumbo in between. It is not unusual for a visitor to the city to gain fifteen pounds in a week
yet the alternative is a whole lot worse. If you don't eat day and night, if you don't constantly funnel the indigenous flavors into your bloodstream, then the mystery beast will go right on humping you, and you will feel its sordid presence rubbing against you long after you have left town. In fact, like any sex offender, it can leave permanent psychological scars.
Tom Robbins Get Off My Land Sayings By Tom Robbins: The minute you land in New Orleans, something wet and dark leaps on you and
So across the chaos, the Devil looks at God and falls deeply in love with Her. She looks at Him, and the same thing happens. They get married and have some children - first light, then the dry land, and all the trees, and so on and so forth. Last of all, She gives birth to Adam and Eve. They worship their mother, but not their father. He gets jealous. God and the Devil fight. They agree to split up. She gets to keep heaven, and He has to move in to hell. Then she talks bad about Him to their children, makes them hate Him.Erin O'Riordan Get Off My Land Sayings By Erin O'Riordan: So across the chaos, the Devil looks at God and falls deeply in love with
Nirvikalpa samadhi or sahaja samadhi is all the way up. You get above the cloud line to the land of eternal snows and it's ecstasy beyond ecstasy.Frederick Lenz Get Off My Land Sayings By Frederick Lenz: Nirvikalpa samadhi or sahaja samadhi is all the way up. You get above the cloud
The farther we get away from the land, the greater our insecurity.Henry Ford Get Off My Land Sayings By Henry Ford: The farther we get away from the land, the greater our insecurity.
... how it would be nice if, for every sea waiting for us, there would be a river, for us.
And someone -a father, a lover, someone- able to take us by the hand and find that river -imagine it, invent it- and put us on its stream, with the lightness of one only word, goodbye. This, really, would be wonderful. It would be sweet, life, every life. And things wouldn't hurt, but they would get near taken by stream, one could first shave and then touch them and only finally be touched. Be wounded, also. Die because of them. Doesn't matter. But everything would be, finally, human. It would be enough someone's fancy -a father, a lover, someone- could invent a way, here in the middle of the silence, in this land which don't wanna talk. Clement way, and beautiful.
A way from here to the sea.
Alessandro Baricco Get Off My Land Sayings By Alessandro Baricco: ... how it would be nice if, for every sea waiting for us, there would
When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can look up, you can get up. Let your reason get you back up.Les Brown Get Off My Land Sayings By Les Brown: When life knocks you down, try to land on your back. Because if you can
We believe that the creation of a woman was the crowning and final and most glorified moment of human creation. That we start with light & dark and land & sea and we move through fish & fowl & beasts of the field and we get to Adam and it's still not good enough. And only when Eve was created
this is our theology [ ... ]
that is our theology, that the crowning creation and the glory of the human experience came with the creation of Eve.
Jeffrey R. Holland Get Off My Land Sayings By Jeffrey R. Holland: We believe that the creation of a woman was the crowning and final and most
We are a race of tradition-lovers in a new land, of king-reverers in a Republic, of hero-worshipers in a society of mundane get-and-spend. It is a Country and a Time where any bank clerk or common laborer can become a famous outlaw, where an outlaw can in a very short time be sainted in song and story into a Robin Hood, where a Frontier Model Excalibur can be drawn from the block at any gunshop for twenty dollars.Oakley Hall Get Off My Land Sayings By Oakley Hall: We are a race of tradition-lovers in a new land, of king-reverers in a Republic,
I don't see why you're not just going for this.' Dovey looked her in the eyes, in the mirror. 'You are a rocket. You go for thing, Dellarobia. That is you. When did you ever not?'
Dellarobia shut her eyes. 'When there was nothing out there to land on, I guess.'
'Now, see,' Dovey clucked, 'that's a woman thing. Men and kids get to just light out and fly, without even worrying about what comes next.
Barbara Kingsolver Get Off My Land Sayings By Barbara Kingsolver: I don't see why you're not just going for this.' Dovey looked her in the
They envy your youth. You two are like exotic creatures from the land of the young.'
I've never understood all that these-are-the-best-years-of-your-life crap. If this is as good as it gets then I might as well quit now. Let me get to the shimmery oasis of adulthood.
Leanne Hall Get Off My Land Sayings By Leanne Hall: They envy your youth. You two are like exotic creatures from the land of the
And on this night, the last of its kind before we get married to each other at the stroke of 8 tomorrow in the evening, as I walk towards my bed to call the day off, the last puff of wind brought from a fairy-tale land urges me to write this letter as your girlfriend, for one last time.Debalina Haldar Get Off My Land Sayings By Debalina Haldar: And on this night, the last of its kind before we get married to each
Lord Antesh," Uncle Sentes said. "I see no recognisable flag of truce, do you?" Antesh pursed his lips and shook his head. "Can't say as I do, my lord." "Well then." ". . . swift transportation to any land of your choice," the Volarian was saying, the scroll held in front of his eyes. "Plus one hundred pounds in gol - " He choked off as Antesh's arrow punched through the scroll and the breastplate beyond. He tumbled from the saddle and lay still, the scroll pinned to his chest. "Right," the Fief Lord said, turning away. "Let me know when the rest get here.Anthony Ryan Get Off My Land Sayings By Anthony Ryan: Lord Antesh," Uncle Sentes said. "I see no recognisable flag of truce, do you?" Antesh
I'm focusing on cultivating my land. I have vegetables and fruit trees; I want to get some chickens and solar and really get off the grid and focus on just, really, being a mother.Angela Lindvall Get Off My Land Sayings By Angela Lindvall: I'm focusing on cultivating my land. I have vegetables and fruit trees; I want to
Essex raised its ugly head. When i was a scholarship boy at the local grammar, son of a city-hall toiler on the make, this country was synonymous with liberty, success, and Cambridge. Now look at it. Shopping malls and housing estates pursue their creeping invasion of our ancient land. A North Sea wind snatched frilly clouds in its teeth and scarpered off to the midlands. The countryside proper began at last. My mother had a cousin out here, her family had a big house. I think they moved to Winnipeg for a better life. There! There, in the shadow of that DIY warehouse, once stood a row of walnut trees where me and Pip Oakes - a childhood chum who died aged thirteen under the wheels of an oil tanker - varnished a canoe one summer and sailed it alone the Say. Sticklebacks in jars,. There, right there, around that bend we lit a fire and cooked beans and potatoes wrapped in silver foil! Come back, oh, come back! Is one glimpse all I get?David Mitchell Get Off My Land Sayings By David Mitchell: Essex raised its ugly head. When i was a scholarship boy at the local grammar,
He called her "my love," and for a minute she wished it was true. But calling her "my way to get a piece of land and ass" probably didn't slip off the tongue as easily, or translate as well to Greek.Alexia Adams Get Off My Land Sayings By Alexia Adams: He called her "my love," and for a minute she wished it was true. But
I was born in a little town called Lund in British Columbia. It's like a fishing village. My parents were hippies. They tried to live off the land, so I grew up in a log cabin, and we didn't get running water until I was 4. The next year, we got electricity. Then we moved to the city, Victoria, British Columbia, so I could go to school.Stewart Butterfield Get Off My Land Sayings By Stewart Butterfield: I was born in a little town called Lund in British Columbia. It's like a
If I had known, do you think I should have let her get away with this mad plan? That I should have let her rob me of my child? No, I should have taken you myself and hidden with you in some far-off land and never seen her again rather than agree to such an unnatural schemeMary Hoffman Get Off My Land Sayings By Mary Hoffman: If I had known, do you think I should have let her get away with
