Sebastian simply shrugged once more, placed his hand over his mouth in an exaggerated motion, and then bowed, gesturing to Robert. Robert translated this as 'I'm deeply sorry, but having promised my cousin that I wouldn't say a word, I must now embarrass him as best as I can with gestures.Courtney Milan Over Sayings By Courtney Milan: Sebastian simply shrugged once more, placed his hand over his mouth in an exaggerated motion,
What's for dinner, Dad?" Pelops asked.
Tantalus had never liked his son. I don't know why. Maybe Tantalus knew the kid would take over his kingdom someday. Greek kings were always paranoid about stuff like that. Anyway, Tantalus gave his son an evil smile and pulled out a butcher's knife. "Funny you should ask.
Rick Riordan Over Sayings By Rick Riordan: What's for dinner, Dad?" Pelops asked.Tantalus had never liked his son. I don't know why.
They were her home when she was somewhere strange. They were familiar voices, friends that never quarreled with her, clever, powerful friends - daring and knowledgable, tried and tested adventurers who had traveled far and wide. Her books cheered her up when she was sad and kept her from being bored while Mo cut leather and fabric to the right size and re-stitched old pages that over countless years had grown fragile from the many fingers leafing through them.Cornelia Funke Over Sayings By Cornelia Funke: They were her home when she was somewhere strange. They were familiar voices, friends that

The two of us praying like this to the Black Madonna Sudenly washes over me, and I'm filled with love for my mother. The best gift she has give me is the constancy of her belief. Whatever I become, she loves me. To her, I am enough.Ann Kidd Taylor Over Sayings By Ann Kidd Taylor: The two of us praying like this to the Black Madonna Sudenly washes over me,
Mohamed Akram, explained that the Brotherhood "must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions."5Robert Spencer Over Sayings By Robert Spencer: Mohamed Akram, explained that the Brotherhood "must understand that their work in America is a
A brief hush fell over the table when the guy from the bar approached. After he finished depositing their drinks in the center of the table, Lynn jumped on the opportunity to flirt, winking and smiling prettily at him. "Thanks, cowboy."
"Cowboy?" Reaching for her appletini, Piper laughed.
Lynn shrugged. "When I picture him in my bed, I see a Stetson and a saddle."
Something well-known among their group, ever since she watched John Travolta in Urban Cowboy, she was on a mission to secure herself her very own cowboy.
"I bet you see a branding iron too," Jules snickered.
Lynn's thoughtful gaze trailed after him as the bartender returned to making drinks.
J.C. Valentine Over Sayings By J.C. Valentine: A brief hush fell over the table when the guy from the bar approached. After
(First lines) Now a traveler must make his way to Noon City by the best means he can, for there are no trains or buses headed in that direction, though six days a week a truck from the Chuberry Turpentine Company collects mail and supplies at the nextdoor town of Paradise Chapel; occasionally a person bound for Noon City can catch a ride with the driver of the truck, Sam Ratcliffe. It's a rough trip no matter how you come, for these washboard roads will loosen up even brandnew cars pretty fast, and hitchhikers always find the going bad. Also, this is lonesome country, and here in the sunken marshes where tiger lilies bloom the size of a man's head there are luminous green logs that shine under the dark water like drowned corpses. Often the only movement on the landscape is a broken spiral of smoke from a sorry-looking farmhouse on the horizon, or a wing-stiffened bird, silent and arrow-eyed, circling endlessly over the bleak deserted pinewoods.Truman Capote Over Sayings By Truman Capote: (First lines) Now a traveler must make his way to Noon City by the best
What we insistently desire, over time, is what we become.Neal A. Maxwell Over Sayings By Neal A. Maxwell: What we insistently desire, over time, is what we become.
Like every parent, when you start your family, your life completely changes. And you completely live for someone else. I find that the most extraordinary thing. Your life is handed over to someone else. From that moment on, they come first in every choice you make. It's the most wonderful thing.Angelina Jolie Over Sayings By Angelina Jolie: Like every parent, when you start your family, your life completely changes. And you completely
Art is the concrete artifact of faith and expectation, the realization of a world that would otherwise be little more than a veil of pointless consciousness stretched over a gulf of mystery.Stephen King Over Sayings By Stephen King: Art is the concrete artifact of faith and expectation, the realization of a world that
Love is much like a dam: If you allow a tiny crack to form through which only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole structure, and soon no one will be able to control the force and current.
For when those walls come down, then love takes over, and it no longer matters what is possible or impossible; it doesn't even matter whether we can keep the loved one at our side. To love is to lose control.
Paulo Coelho Over Sayings By Paulo Coelho: Love is much like a dam: If you allow a tiny crack to form through
Mind has no matter or energy but they can't escape its predominance over everything they do. Logic exists in the mind. Numbers exist only in the mind.Robert M. Pirsig Over Sayings By Robert M. Pirsig: Mind has no matter or energy but they can't escape its predominance over everything they
It was outrageous that [Donald Trump] would be advocating [that] women who exercise their constitutional right and have autonomy over their healthcare decisions would be criminals, along with the doctors that served them. He did try to walk it back - I think pretty unconvincingly.Hillary Clinton Over Sayings By Hillary Clinton: It was outrageous that [Donald Trump] would be advocating [that] women who exercise their constitutional
The concept of ta'dib, if properly understood and competently explicated, is the correct concept of education in Islam, and not ta'lim or tarbiyah, which are currently in vogue among Muslims all over the world. this is because ta'dib already includes within its conceptual structure the elements of knowledge ('ilm), instruction (ta'lim), and good breeding (tarbiyah).Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud Over Sayings By Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud: The concept of ta'dib, if properly understood and competently explicated, is the correct concept of
Look here, my boy, if you have average intelligence, about half the things you do are bound to be right, which is a fair achievement for any career. Don't spend sleepless nights over them.R.P. Noronha Over Sayings By R.P. Noronha: Look here, my boy, if you have average intelligence, about half the things you do
We trigger each other, it seems, some dysfunctional Rube Goldberg mousetrap, a laugh, then a slap, a razor gliding over a mirror, a glass filled, a glass emptied, a ball rolling down a length of pipe, a pipe filling up and overflowing with smoke. On our best days, we see each other for all that we are, and we find a way to make each other better.Richard Thomas Over Sayings By Richard Thomas: We trigger each other, it seems, some dysfunctional Rube Goldberg mousetrap, a laugh, then a
Laughing is the sensation of feeling good all over and showing it principally in one spot.Josh Billings Over Sayings By Josh Billings: Laughing is the sensation of feeling good all over and showing it principally in one
It isn't myself that's important in this transaction apparently; the individual doesn't count much in the situation ... all of us are more or less pawns. We're moved about like chessmen by circumstances over which we have no control.Theodore Dreiser Over Sayings By Theodore Dreiser: It isn't myself that's important in this transaction apparently; the individual doesn't count much in
The trouble is, walking in Venice becomes compulsive once you start. Just over the next bridge, you say, and then the next one beckons.Daphne Du Maurier Over Sayings By Daphne Du Maurier: The trouble is, walking in Venice becomes compulsive once you start. Just over the next
And I had loved her, I had at least once in my life been capable of that, able to escape my self long enough to love. Suddenly, the unacknowledged sorrows and blunders of my life surged up in me all at once. I thought I would be sick. I gasped, put my hand over my mouth until tears began collecting on my fingers. I took my hand away and looked at it as if I had just discovered I was bleeding.Wayne Johnston Over Sayings By Wayne Johnston: And I had loved her, I had at least once in my life been capable
It is perfectly clear that people, given no alternative, will choose tyranny over anarchy, because anarchy is the worst tyranny of all ... The special nature of liberties is that they can be defended only as long as we still have them. So the very first signs of their erosion must be resisted, whether the issue be domestic surveillance by the Army, so-called preventive detention, or the freedom of corporate television, or that of a campus newspaper.Eric Sevareid Over Sayings By Eric Sevareid: It is perfectly clear that people, given no alternative, will choose tyranny over anarchy, because
But the wilderness had found him out early, and had taken on him a terrible vengeance for the fantastic invasion. I think it had whispered to him things about himself which he did not know, things of which he had no conception till he took counsel with this great solitude--and the whisper had proved irresistibly fascinating.

***
Ah! but it was something to have at least a choice of nightmares.

***
...perhaps all the wisdom, and all truth, and all sincerity, are just compressed into that inappreciable moment of time in which we step over the threshold of the invisible. Perhaps!
Joseph Conrad Over Sayings By Joseph Conrad: But the wilderness had found him out early, and had taken on him a terrible
It's impossible to imagine, isn't it? Most men probably go through the same motions, more or less, but what's in their minds, what agitates their blood? What could be more mortifyingly personal, what veers closer to the depths, than whatever it is that makes us come? If we knew, if we could see what's in the cartoon balloons over other guy's heads as they jerk off, would we be moved, or repelled?Michael Cunningham Over Sayings By Michael Cunningham: It's impossible to imagine, isn't it? Most men probably go through the same motions, more
Over and over in the play my character says, "I'm thirty-two years old," as if that should explain everything that's wrong in her life. I don't know what it's like to be thirty-two, but I can imagine. I imagine she means she's stuck in an in-between time, she's at an age that isn't a milestone but more of a no-man's-land, an age where she's feeling like her hopes are fading.Lauren Graham Over Sayings By Lauren Graham: Over and over in the play my character says, "I'm thirty-two years old," as if
Everybody prays whether [you think] of it as praying or not. The odd silence you fall into when something very beautiful is happening or something very good or very bad. The ah-h-h-h! that sometimes floats up out of you as out of a Fourth of July crowd when the sky-rocket bursts over the water. The stammer of pain at somebody else s pain. The stammer of joy at somebody else's joy. Whatever words or sounds you use for sighing with over your own life. These are all prayers in their way.Frederick Buechner Over Sayings By Frederick Buechner: Everybody prays whether [you think] of it as praying or not. The odd silence you
Each time you happen to me all over again.Edith Wharton Over Sayings By Edith Wharton: Each time you happen to me all over again.
The second episode of any new show can be tough. You have about a week to top the well-crafted and polished pilot episode that was written over six months.Michael Patrick King Over Sayings By Michael Patrick King: The second episode of any new show can be tough. You have about a week
I have wanted to write from a young age, but working with so many gifted authors and editors over the years has taught me so much. I doubt I would be where I am today without that amazing experience.Julie Klassen Over Sayings By Julie Klassen: I have wanted to write from a young age, but working with so many gifted
I think it is unnatural to think that there is such a thing as a blue-sky, white-clouded happy childhood for anybody. Childhood is a very, very tricky business of surviving it. Because if one thing goes wrong or anything goes wrong, and usually something goes wrong, then you are compromised as a human being. You're going to trip over that for a good part of your life.Maurice Sendak Over Sayings By Maurice Sendak: I think it is unnatural to think that there is such a thing as a
One of the strangest things in life is the false ideas everywhere prevalent regarding the nature of happiness. The general belief seems to be that it is founded on things that can be bought with money. The more money the more things, and the more things the more enjoyment, the greater the degree of happiness. But money has never yet been known to buy happiness. No one has ever yet found happiness by chasing it over the earth. It is not in our food, it is not in our drink, it is not in our clothes or material possessions; it is not in excitement or a constant round of pleasure. Happiness is born of right living. It is the child of right thinking, and right acting, of helpful service. A selfish life never knows real happiness. Greed and envy never touch it.Orison Swett Marden Over Sayings By Orison Swett Marden: One of the strangest things in life is the false ideas everywhere prevalent regarding the
I was always decoding. I was hyperalert.
Being hyperalert is a lasting thing. Being a watcher. Noticing emotional shirts, infinitesimally small tremors that flit over another person's face, the jab in a seemingly innocuous word, the quickening in a walk, an abrupt gesture - the way, say, a jacket is tossed over a chair.
Delia Ephron Over Sayings By Delia Ephron: I was always decoding. I was hyperalert.Being hyperalert is a lasting thing. Being a watcher.
It's also true that many companies get comfortable doing what they have always done, with a few incremental changes. This kind of incrementalism leads to irrelevance over time, especially in technology, because change tends to be revolutionary not evolutionary.Eric Schmidt Over Sayings By Eric Schmidt: It's also true that many companies get comfortable doing what they have always done, with
The smell of grease in the Horseshoe Diner was strong, like the residuals of every meal that had ever been cooked over its open griddle. I lingered in a corner booth near the window, speaking to my wife Ava on the cell phone. With as much free time as a corpse, I pondered past mistakes, but I kept the call short before she asked too many questions and revived the dying thoughts in my mind. A man was a sharp and useful tool, I thought, as long as he never paused to consider it.Christopher Klim Over Sayings By Christopher Klim: The smell of grease in the Horseshoe Diner was strong, like the residuals of every
I know I want her body more than I want my next breath. And I know that meeting her, basking in her smiles and wanting her on me like a second skin has forever changed me. But can there ever be more? Can I spend every night counting her freckles, like I once counted the stars? Can I replace my sunrise with the vision of her sleeping beside me, fiery hair, wild and tangled all over her face? Can I swim in those too-big turquoise eyes and drown myself in her laughter every night?
I think the biggest question is, How can I not
S.L. Jennings Over Sayings By S.L. Jennings: I know I want her body more than I want my next breath. And I
I am moved, shaken, and when it is all over, I look at wonder at what is written or painted.Robert Kanigher Over Sayings By Robert Kanigher: I am moved, shaken, and when it is all over, I look at wonder at
I sometimes wonder if I'm the person I'm supposed to be," Polly said. He voice was quiet. Almost distant. "Or if I'm just filling the only role left over.Matthew Dicks Over Sayings By Matthew Dicks: I sometimes wonder if I'm the person I'm supposed to be," Polly said. He voice
Ashes present a great diminishment away from the living tree with its huge crown and its abundant shade. The recognition of this diminishment is a proper experience for men who are over thirty. If the man doesn't experience that diminishment sharply, he will retain his inflation, and continue to identify himself with all in him that can fly: his sexual drive, his mind, his refusal to commit himself, his addiction, his transcendence, his coolness. The coolness of some American men means that they have skipped ashes.Robert Bly Over Sayings By Robert Bly: Ashes present a great diminishment away from the living tree with its huge crown and
Jeffrey to Felicia - Given your peculiar fashions over the past four years, I'm afraid you've caused people to believe you're a little insane.Jen Turano Over Sayings By Jen Turano: Jeffrey to Felicia - Given your peculiar fashions over the past four years, I'm afraid

Let us learn how the love of Christ, received into the heart, triumphs gradually but surely over all sin, transforms character, turning even its weakness into strength, and so, from the depths of transgression and the very gates of hell, raises men to God.Alexander MacLaren Over Sayings By Alexander MacLaren: Let us learn how the love of Christ, received into the heart, triumphs gradually but
Any woman can weep without tears," she answered over her shoulder, "and most can heal with their hands. It depends on the wound. She is a woman, Your Highness, and that's riddle enoughPeter S. Beagle Over Sayings By Peter S. Beagle: Any woman can weep without tears," she answered over her shoulder, "and most can heal
When I was in middle school, I tried to impress this girl by jumping over this ledge on a scooter. I caught the edge of the ledge and totally fell right in front of her. I never talked to her again. So [my advice is], take it easy if you have a school crush!Kevin Jonas Over Sayings By Kevin Jonas: When I was in middle school, I tried to impress this girl by jumping over
The world of reason is to be regarded as a great and immortal being, who ceaselessly works out what is necessary, and so makes himself lord also over what is accidental.Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe Over Sayings By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: The world of reason is to be regarded as a great and immortal being, who
The president, who finds so much to complain about in other areas of the world, apparently saw nothing wrong in recognizing a Communist regime that has killed more people in its short history of control over the teeming millions of that great country than any other collection of dictators or tyrants in the history of the world.Barry Goldwater Over Sayings By Barry Goldwater: The president, who finds so much to complain about in other areas of the world,
My first band was an Argentinian folk group when I was 10. When I was 12 I had my electric guitar, and by the time I was 13, the Beatles came into the scene, and that was over. So I have a mixture of all these traditions, and I think that's who I am, a mixture of everything.Gustavo Santaolalla Over Sayings By Gustavo Santaolalla: My first band was an Argentinian folk group when I was 10. When I was
In the end, it's a good investment for America to be involved in helping people get democratic governance - not to take over their country - but to help people be free. And that is an investment that will pay off in the future.Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Over Sayings By Ileana Ros-Lehtinen: In the end, it's a good investment for America to be involved in helping people
Arguments over grammar and style are often as fierce as those over IBM versus Mac, and as fruitless as Coke versus Pepsi and boxers versus briefs.Jack Lynch Over Sayings By Jack Lynch: Arguments over grammar and style are often as fierce as those over IBM versus Mac,
Everything was normal and right. There were dishes in the sink and the sound of kids playing in the street and the trains passing smutty wind. Something had settled over the kitchen. Rose kept the colours inside the lines and all the patterns were proper, sensible and neat. Happiness. That's what it was.Tim Winton Over Sayings By Tim Winton: Everything was normal and right. There were dishes in the sink and the sound of
Foes and false friends are all around me, Lord Davos. They infest my city like roaches, and at night I feel them crawling over me." The fat man's fingers coiled into a fist, and all his chins trembled. "My son Wendel came to the Twins a guest. He ate Lord Walder's bread and salt, and hung his sword upon the wall to feast with his friends. And they murdered him. Murdered, I say, and may the Freys choke upon their fables. I drink with Jared, jape with Symond, promise Rhaegar the hand of my own beloved granddaughter ... but never think that means I have forgotten. The north remembers, Lord Davos. The north remembers, and the mummer's farce is almost done. My son is home.George R R Martin Over Sayings By George R R Martin: Foes and false friends are all around me, Lord Davos. They infest my city like

Over the years it [the National Committee for Mental Hygiene] has championed for the promotion of 'mental health' despite the fact that nobody knows what it is or how to do it.E. Fuller Torrey Over Sayings By E. Fuller Torrey: Over the years it [the National Committee for Mental Hygiene] has championed for the promotion
All over the world people live in intimate daily contact with one another. They wash together, eat and sleep together, face challenges together, share joy and sorrow. The rugged individual who relies on no one else is a figure who can only exist in a culture of domination where a privileged few use more of the world's resources than the many who must daily do without. Worship of individualism has in part led us to the unhealthy culture of narcissism that is so all pervasive in our society.Bell Hooks Over Sayings By Bell Hooks: All over the world people live in intimate daily contact with one another. They wash
Writing every day is very, very helpful, but set the bar at a place where you have no excuse: It doesn't matter how tired you are, how late it is, you will do it. So if you say, "I will write one hundred words a day" - set the bar there, and then you can actually get over that bar.N.D. Wilson Over Sayings By N.D. Wilson: Writing every day is very, very helpful, but set the bar at a place where

If you're worried about putting food on the table or putting a roof over your head, that stress is definitely will contribute to unhappiness, but once you have your basic needs met then incremental money.Tony Hsieh Over Sayings By Tony Hsieh: If you're worried about putting food on the table or putting a roof over your
For the average person, taken to their sick bed, it takes a serious bout of pneumonia or a full body cast to completely forget the life they had prior to falling off the rollercoaster. I, however, will do this over a paper cut on my thumb, obsessing of said cut and being generally consumed by it.Sloane Crosley Over Sayings By Sloane Crosley: For the average person, taken to their sick bed, it takes a serious bout of
An unbearable smug look came over his usually impassive face."Uh-huh. You just keep telling youself that. You looove me."
I took a swing at him, but he jumped back nimbly, and all I did was jar my left arm, making it hurt.
He laughed at me, then pointed at the woods ouside the window."Pick a tree. I'll go carve our initials in it.
James Patterson Over Sayings By James Patterson: An unbearable smug look came over his usually impassive face."Uh-huh. You just keep telling youself

Bear in mind the simple rule, X squared to the power of two minus five over the seven point eight three times nineteen is approximately equal to the cube root of MCC squared divided by X minus a quarter of a third percent. Keep that in mind, and you can't go very far wrong.Eric Idle Over Sayings By Eric Idle: Bear in mind the simple rule, X squared to the power of two minus five
Over the years, I have become convinced that Hellenism as a culture represents not a static condition of uniform sublimity mysteriously achieved and maintained as an effect of some racial advantage. Rather it should be understood as an evolving process, governed by a dynamic of change, as both language and thought underwent transformational alteration caused by a transition from orality to literacy. The instrument of change is discerned to be the invention of the Greek alphabet, at a quite late stage in the history of developing cultures.Eric A. Havelock Over Sayings By Eric A. Havelock: Over the years, I have become convinced that Hellenism as a culture represents not a
For instance: years into the future the building where X Factor is filmed could be a house. The residents may witness the spectre of Simon Cowell saying "That's possibly the worst audition I've ever seen," over and over again.Pippa Franks Over Sayings By Pippa Franks: For instance: years into the future the building where X Factor is filmed could be
Splutter, splutter. Yes - we're off - we're rising. But why start off with an engine like that? But it smooths out now, like a long sigh, like a person breathing easily, freely. Like someone singing ecstatically, climbing, soaring - sustained note of power and joy. We turn from the lights of the city; we pivot on a dark wing; we roar over the earth. The plane seems exultant now, even arrogant. We did it, we did it!Anne Morrow Lindbergh Over Sayings By Anne Morrow Lindbergh: Splutter, splutter. Yes - we're off - we're rising. But why start off with an
I tried to reassure him with every line about how the world is hard and unfair sometimes, but that it's all OK because he is so loved. He is surrounded by souls who would do anything to help him. And not only that
he has wisdom and patience of his own, buried deep inside his being, which will only reveal themselves over time and will always carry him through any trial. He is a gift from God to all of us.
Elizabeth Gilbert Over Sayings By Elizabeth Gilbert: I tried to reassure him with every line about how the world is hard and
He was a wanderer by nature, and even if England and the nearer East were closed to him, the world was wide, the sun shone in many places, the stars wheeled over one, books could be read, women had beauty, flowers scent, tobacco its flavour, music its moving power, coffee its fragrance, horses and dogs and birds were the same seductive creatures,John Galsworthy Over Sayings By John Galsworthy: He was a wanderer by nature, and even if England and the nearer East were
Ageing means a loss of a number of skills over time.Julie Bishop Over Sayings By Julie Bishop: Ageing means a loss of a number of skills over time.
I missed home like the ache of hunger, something in me left empty. I'd missed it every day since we crossed out of the valley, going over the mountains. Roots - yes. There were roots in my heart, as deep as any corruption could go.Naomi Novik Over Sayings By Naomi Novik: I missed home like the ache of hunger, something in me left empty. I'd missed
I don't think you will ever be able to understand what it is like - the utter loneliness, the feeling of desperation - to be abandoned in a deep well in the middle of the desert at the edge of the world, overcome by intense pain in total darkness. I went so far as to regret that the Mongolian noncom had not simply shot me and got it over with. If I had been killed that way, at least they would have been aware of my death. If I died here, however, it would be truly a lonely death, a death of no concern to anyone, a silent death.Haruki Murakami Over Sayings By Haruki Murakami: I don't think you will ever be able to understand what it is like -
He murmers into my hair, "Forget what I said earlier, let's stick with this, I might not survive anything more." I laugh. Then he jumps up, finds my wrists, and pins them over my head. "Yeah, right. Totally joking, I want to do everything with you, whenever you're ready, I'm the one, promise?" He's above me, batting and grinning like a total hooplehead.
"I promise," I say.
"Good. Glad that's decided." He raises an eyebrow. "I'm going to deflower you, John Lennon.
Jandy Nelson Over Sayings By Jandy Nelson: He murmers into my hair, "Forget what I said earlier, let's stick with this, I
Trevor, let's go upstairs and take a really hot bath with extra bubbles so that my skin gets all sudsy and slippery so you can run your incredibly gifted naughty hands over me while we see how many times you can make me come before the water gets coldR.L. Mathewson Over Sayings By R.L. Mathewson: Trevor, let's go upstairs and take a really hot bath with extra bubbles so that
Jerusalem was capital of southern Israel, known then as Judah. Isn't it true that there's always a rivalry between north and south? North and South Korea, North and South Vietnam, Northern and Southern Ireland, Yankees and Rebels, uptown and downtown. Somebody please tell me why that is? Maybe southerners get too much sun, like Mr. Sock over there, frying his threads, and northerners don't get enough (although I hardly think northern Israel a cool spot in the shade), but southern peoples
tropical and downtown types
always seem to lean toward decadence, whereas uptown, in the north, progress is favored. Decadence and progress obviously are at odds.
Tom Robbins Over Sayings By Tom Robbins: Jerusalem was capital of southern Israel, known then as Judah. Isn't it true that there's
He watched in awe as she stacked up an enormous armload of music. "There," she finished, slapping Frank Zappa's Greatest Hits on top of the pile. "That should do for a start."
"You are a music lover," said the wide-eyed cashier.
"No, I'm a kleptomaniac." And she dashed out the door.
He was so utterly shocked that it took him a moment to run after her.
With a meaningful nod in the direction of the astounded Cahills, she barreled down the cobblestone street with her load.
"Fermati!" shouted the cashier, scrambling in breathless pursuit.
Nellie let a few CDs drop and watched with satisfaction over her shoulder as the clerk stopped to pick them up. The trick would be to keep the chase going just long enough for Amy and Dan to search Disco Volante.
Yikes, she reflected suddenly, I'm starting to think like a Cahill ...
And if she was nuts enough to hang around this family, it was only going to get worse.
Gordon Korman Over Sayings By Gordon Korman: He watched in awe as she stacked up an enormous armload of music. "There," she
The things I have sold to film, I've sold because I was happy to rent out the right to adapt those works. Some things, I haven't sold to film, because I was less interested in having no control over the adaptation.Warren Ellis Over Sayings By Warren Ellis: The things I have sold to film, I've sold because I was happy to rent
I like to get myself in over my head.Marissa Mayer Over Sayings By Marissa Mayer: I like to get myself in over my head.
I am not a religious soul, but I must say it does seem a little uncanny that on that morning of all mornings I should have looked over the bridge at such a propitious moment. I mentioned the story at lunch to one of the members of the cathedral, and he nodded sagely and pointed a finger heavenward, as if to say, 'It was God, of course.' I nodded and didn't say anything, but thought: 'Then why did He push him in?' BeyondBill Bryson Over Sayings By Bill Bryson: I am not a religious soul, but I must say it does seem a little
You're young. Maybe there'll be time for a do-over if you don't get it right the first time. But there are no guarantees.

However inadequate our ideas of causal efficacy may be, we are less wide of the mark when we say that our ideas and feelings have it, than the Automatists are when they say they haven't it. As in the night all cats are gray, so in the darkness of metaphysical criticism all causes are obscure. But one has no right to pull the pall over the psychic half of the subject only ... whilst in the same breath one dogmatizes about material causation as if Hume, Kant, and Lotze had never been born.William James Over Sayings By William James: However inadequate our ideas of causal efficacy may be, we are less wide of the

We have gone forth from our shores repeatedly over the last hundred years and we've done this as recently as the last year in Afghanistan and put wonderful young men and women at risk, many of whom have lost their lives, and we have asked for nothing except enough ground to bury them in, and otherwise we have returned home to seek our own lives in peace.Colin Powell Over Sayings By Colin Powell: We have gone forth from our shores repeatedly over the last hundred years and we've

And missing the first train of the morning also meant I didn't get to see Jay. But I wasn't going to think about that. Because I am not gay. I don't notice other guys; I don't drool over them; I don't look forward to seeing their handsome face each morning; I don't dream about them every night; and I definitely don't get a hard-on thinking about one particular face. Nope! Not gay here at all.
Much.

In a near-by clearing, Cricket and How-Ya-Do came upon a ridiculously comical sight.
It was an extra-large hyper-manic bird yelling at the funniest looking Crawfish that she had ever seen. The Crawfish stood over a foot tall, which just does not happen, and he was wearing a light-blue beanie and gold chains around his neck.

His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me. This is a blessed thought, for it means that we cannot wander from the presence of God, or depart from divine care. Always God watches over us and comforts us. Forever we sit in the house of the divine and we are ceaselessly cared for. The all-seeing eye cannot overlook any one, and all are kept in sacred care. All are kept in divine care.Ernest Holmes Over Sayings By Ernest Holmes: His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me. This is a

They were all the same size, but when you put them on, the clothes shifted and slid until they fit. The uniforms were apparently the same, because as Jenna slipped into the skirt, the hem brushed her shins, only to slither back up her body until the skirt fell just below her knees.
"I don't know if that's convenient or creepy," she said, inspecting her legs.
Shoving off the covers, I got out of bed and went to get my own uniform. "Let's go with creepy, shall we?"
Jenna pulled on her blazer, and I noticed she was chewing her lower lip, obviously thinking something over.
"You know, that's a dangerous habit for a vampire," I told her, nodding at her mouth.

We are all free in a democracy to believe whatever we wish, so why call any opinion such as Creationism a virulent cultural parasite-equivalent? Because it represents a triumph of blind religious faith over carefully tested fact. It is not a conception of reality forged by evidence and logical judgment. Instead, it is part of the price of admission to a religious tribe. Faith is the evidence given of a person's submission to a particular god, and even then not to the deity directly but to other humans who claim to represent the god.Edward O.
