  • I'm willing, answered the cowboy. "But I don't know if you can get any of 'em to-night. It will be a hard climb to where they are. I don't know as we can go all the way on hosses."
  • Genetic trail the test also allows detection of any of the genetic mutations which can cause cystic fibrosis.
  • I'd been walking for more than two weeks and hadn't seen any of my friends. I remembered the voice of that goblin, so familiar to me. The most unusual part of it was that a goblin led the Dark and Evil. Why would evil wizards allow a Goblin to lead them? Is he a real goblin or something else? The goblin's voice sounded like he just might be Mr. Greeley who used to work at the school.
  • I can be subtle, Jurtan thought, or I can just go for it. But what do I have to lose? "I still dont know what Id be getting out from," Jurtan stated, trying to keep his voice firm and reasonable, and not at all whiny. "How can I know what Id be getting out of if I dont really know what Ive gotten into? All any of you ever want to do is drop sneaky little hints."
  • You took 'em? What right have you taking my shoes? Haven't you got any of your own? and Roy spoke sternly, for he thought this was too much; first an attempt made to rob him of his money, and then some one stealing his shoes.
  • The men become so much attached to their horses that they will steal, and risk their lives recklessly, to get them a feed. In the Regular Service, the men were discouraged from forming any of these horse attachments. It was found that, when once a soldier made a pet of his horse, he was apt to be too careful of him.
  • The militia leader probably had the most bluster of any of them. The car driver had the least. He carried a perpetual hangdog look. The other three vacillated between anger, frustration, and fear, sometimes mocking the cops just to keep up their spirits.
  • It was growing late; the Englishmen were hungry and had yet to find a comfortable ground for the night's bivouac. Fitzroy quietly told his men to draw off; but at the first movement of retreat, the savages grew bolder and more menacing. Nothing could be much more galling to Englishmen than retreat under such circumstances as these. Here were thirty white men, all well armed, and the majority of them experienced fightingmen, turning their backs on less than a hundred miserable specimens of humanity with scarcely brains enough to know the use of their own weapons. The faster the sailors moved, the faster the Indians followed. To kill one or two of their number would have been to put the rest to flight; but unless actual violence should be offered, neither Fitzroy nor any of his companions were the men to disgrace their flag by the sort of "fighting" which has made the Spaniards and Dutch hated in East and West.
  • He wondered if his guest knew any of the new Deep Uirolec. Rumors had spread that the songster party had compiled a fifth set this year.
  • Quambo on hearing the sounds started up, snapping his fingers, kicking up his legs, and whirling round and round in time to the tune. The Indian, grave as was his exterior, forthwith joined him, out-vying him in his leaps, and adding the wildest shrieks and shouts. I could not long resist their example, and in a few minutes even Uncle Mark was dancing away as vigorously as any of us; Mike all the time kicking his heels, and bobbing his head with a rapidity which seemed to threaten the dislocation of his neck. It was the wildest scene imaginable, and any one observing us would have supposed that we had all gone mad.
  • Poor Granny! murmured the girl, softly, tears coming into her eyes. "I wish't we could get 'round, the two of us, in these sweet-smellin' spring woods, an' get the first Mayflowers together! Couldn't you just try now, Granny? I believe you are goin' to walk all right again some day, just as well as any of us. Do try!"
  • Godfrey was not sorry to lay himself down on the boards. There was no attempt at undressing on the part of any of the convicts. He would have thought the bed a very hard one a few months since; but he was now well contented with it, though he would have preferred rather more room on each side.
  • Their loss this time only served to make them more revengeful. In July following they again came against Boonesborough, resolved upon vengeance. They numbered this time more than two hundred. To prevent any of the white settlements from sending aid to Boonesborough, they had sent off small parties to molest them, and keep them busy. The savages now commenced their attack, and for two days a constant firing was kept up. At last, finding their efforts again idle, they raised a loud yell, and returned to the forests. The whites could now count their slain and wounded as they dragged them off: seven were killed, and numbers wounded, while in the fort only one white man was slain. In spite of their numbers and their cunning, they did but little harm: for Boone was never found sleeping; he knew that Indians were his neighbors, and he was always ready for them. After this, they learned to dread him more than ever. He now went by the name of the "Great Long Knife."
  • The four of us stood there for the next few minutes, studying Gregs face and hoping to see some sign of movement. I thought one of us should have been doing something instead of just standing around, but didnt know what else any of us could do without moving him and potentially making things worse.
  • For a while he looked at Umbelazi, and I saw love and fear in his eye, for towards him Panda always had more affection than for any of his other children.
  • Captain Riggs had a trunk full of old logbooks, and he said any of them would make a better story than the Kut Sang. The truth of it was, he didn't want me to write this story. There were things he didn't wish to see in type, perhaps because he feared to read about himself and what had happened in the old steamer in the China Sea.
  • With this sorry apology for a weapon, and while they were still wondering, he dashed into the stream; and almost before any of the others had recovered from their first surprise, they saw him plunge past the spot where stood the affrighted girl. In another instant his black head, with the long dark hair trailing behind it, appeared in close juxtaposition to the opened jaws of the reptile. Then the head was seen suddenly to duck beneath the surface, while at the same time a brown-skinned arm and hand rose above it with a pointed stake in its grasp--like the emblematic representation seen upon some ancient crest. Then was seen an adroit turning of the stick, so quick as to be scarce perceptible--immediately followed by a backward spring upon the part of the lizard, with a series of writhings and contortions, in which both its body and tail took part, till the water around it was lashed into foam.
  • Every one in the room knew that the thing she would not mention was the money Mrs. Cliff had borrowed for her passage. Miss Shott had not lent any of it, but her brother, a retired carpenter and builder, had, and as his sister expected to outlive him, although he was twelve years younger than she was, she naturally felt a little sore upon this point.
  • "I don't know," Chase said. "I don't understand any of it, and I really want to. This whole thing just keeps getting bigger, and I don't know where it'll stop." He knew he should try to be more positive for the sake of the others, but he couldn't help but speak what was on his mind. "I just don't want to see Cat get hurt. You know how she is."
  • To my astonishment he went on talking quite calmly, and without any of the dazed look and the strange habit of forgetting his own tongue to continue in that of the people among whom he had been a prisoner for so long.
  • Jon never appreciated his father demanding an opinion of him. He did not wish to be in conflict with any of them. Over the long years, however, he learned Bol would drive him incessantly until he spoke his mind. Recently, Jon stopped even trying to refuse. He no longer wished to deal with the constant prodding, thus he spoke out at the king's first request. But he also learned to speak with a guarded tongue, with a voice of caution yet guarded optimism. He would never say that one or the other option was correct. Instead, he would point to the validity of both arguments and pull a compromise solution out of his desire to remain as neutral as possible.
  • He hadnt been able to sense a Gate in any of the doorways within the building. It was hard to tell what time of day it was outside, since the temple had no windows, and their sense of time had been thrown by the unnatural darkness earlier. But they figured it must be nighttime by the time they returned to the chamber, where Leeton still stood over his broken daughter.
  • After having got thus far without broken limbs, it won't do to have the breath squeezed out of my body for want of exertion,"" said I to myself, working away with arms and shoulders, till, as a chicken cracks the shell of its egg, I broke through the covering of snow which was above me, and once more I popped my head into daylight. I was in the midst of a sea of snow, the hind paw of the big bear was close to me, so I hoped that friend Short was not far-off, while I could make out several of my other companions struggling up through the snow around us. High above us towered the cliffs, and it seemed indeed wonderful that any of us could come down such a height alive."
  • The storm is pretty nearly over; I will get the cover off and look round, and then we will see if we can't boil some water and have some tea. We have never used any of those candles yet; this will be a good opportunity to try them.
  • 'But why, dear Minas? You know that your safety is our solemnest duty. We go into danger, to which you are, or may be, more liable than any of us from . . . from circumstances . . . things that have been.'She paused embarrassed.
  • It didn't take long before everyone was fading fast; this was a lot later than any of them normally stayed up. Soon, John and Candice were climbing the stairs to John's old room. The bed was a double, when they were used to a queen-size, and the mattress was old and lumpy, but neither of them expected to have any trouble falling asleep.
  • Don't you see what this brings us up against? asked Ted. "And what we are up against reminds me of the way Mr. Jackson died. This great German element that is secretly for the Kaiser is our Snake in the Grass that watches and waits and will come out and strike openly if ever a German army lands on our shores. Meanwhile it tries to poison the minds of our people and it does all the damage it possibly can on the sly. You see what we have to fight right here at home and how, in a way, we have a harder pull and need more help than any of our Allies.
  • "After travelling many days we reached their hunting grounds and wigwams. I did not find it as pleasant as they had told me it would be. Often they were very cruel to me, and sometimes we did not have much to eat. But I dared not run away, for there was no place to which I could go, except to other wicked Indians; and they would only make things worse. They were all very bad Indians, and very much afraid of the medicine men. All the worship they did was to the bad spirit. They were afraid of him, and so they worshipped him, so that he might not do them much harm. I became as bad as any of them. I tried to forget all that the good Missionary had told me. I tried to wipe all his teachings and prayers from my memory. All he had told me about the Good Spirit and His Son I tried to forget.
  • I think this, said Miss Markham: "so far as any of us have anything to do with it, it belongs to Captain Horn. He discovered it, and it is his."
  • Alexander and I passed through a driveway, entering South Main Street via the busy sidewalk. We paused in front of Himmlers, a classy shop specializing in lamps. "Himmlers?" Alexander remarked with a sly grin. "That's a German name. I wonder if any of those lampshades are all that's left of my Jewish relatives?" he joked.
  • The sailor forgot all about the wounded in the cabin, and running right forward, he seized a capstan bar for a weapon, and then went to the side waiting to help and repel the attack, if any of the enemy managed to reach the deck.
  • Amanda was oblivious to my concern and handed me the sheet of paper she had mentioned earlier. All fifteen questions seemed benign, none giving me any reason for alarm. I handed the sheet back to her and told her that I didnt have objections to any of them. After retrieving the paper, "Off the record, can I ask you a question?"
  • Nor did any of them see him again, or either of the other two for that matter. They must have made up their minds that the region around there was unhealthy for fellows of their stamp, and that the sooner they turned their faces toward civilization the better for them.
  • Not a serious fault that, Vernon. He'll, be able to go aloft more nimbly than any of those lamp-post sort of chaps with long legs, who always trip themselves up in the ratlines. Look at me, youngster, I'm not a big man, and yet I've not been the worse sailor on that account, I think!
  • Never you mind, was the enigmatical answer, given with a shake of the head, "but I have 'em all right. However, that's another matter. What we have to do now is to get ready to meet any of these sheep men if they come up and try to cross the creek."
  • "Poor fellow!" said Moses to Molloy, "I don't wonder you are tired, for you not only carried twice as much as any of us, but you took part of my load. Indeed he did, comrades," added Moses, turning to his friends with an apologetic air. "I didn't want him to do it, but he jerked part o' my load suddenly out o' my hand an' wouldn't give it up again; an', you know, I didn't dare to make a row, for that would have brought the lash down on both of us. But I didn't want him to carry so much, an' him so tired."
  • Among the women there were two who had attracted his attention and roused his interest far more than any of the other members of the Circle. One of these was a tall and beautifully-shaped woman, whose face and figure were those of a woman in the early twenties, but whose long, thick hair was as white as though the snows of seventy winters had drifted over it. As he returned her warm, firm hand-clasp, and looked upon her dark, resolute, and yet perfectly womanly features, the young engineer gave a slight start of recognition. She noticed this at once and said, with a smile and a quick flash from her splendid grey eyes--
  • His voice did serve to anchor me. But I could barely speak, not knowing how much was appropriate to tell him. Not wanting Keith involved in any of this, although of course he would hear about it sooner or later. "Well, I was just calling to let you know Im not home yet either. Actually, honey, Doug needed to go to the hospital." I could hear the catch in my voice. I didnt want to scare him. But at the same time, how I wished Sam was here right now, his broad shoulders and friendly puppy smile supporting me.
  • We start off using the registry class: this class contains static fields that allow access to any of the registry hives.
  • There was absolute silence as each of us internalized Shas words. What overwhelmed me more than anything was the simplicity of it all and the questionwould I remember any of this when I am sent back?
  • The cine was amazing, the greatest marvel yet as far as she was concerned. She and the other little girls crowded into one of the many balconies and tinkered with the controls for it until it lifted free -- how they'd whooped! -- and sailed off to its own little spot under the high swoop of the dome. From there the screen was a little distorted, but they could count the bald spots on the old war heroes' heads as they nodded together in solemn congress, waiting for the films to start. From there they could spy on the boys who were making spitball mischief that was sure to attract a reprimand, though for now the airborne robots were doing a flawless job of silently intercepting the boys' missiles before they disturbed any of the other watchers.
  • Rodriguez, sad and horrified though he was, forgot none of his courtesy. He thanked the Professor and praised the art of Saragossa, but his faith in man and his hope for the world having been newly disappointed, he cared little enough for the things we should care to see or for any of the amusements that are usually dear to youth.
  • "You speak truly," returned Levoreth. She could not keep the harshness from her voice. "What more could anyone want? May all have such lives and find quiet deaths at their end, surrounded by loved ones and peace. Yet the Dark rises and men ride off to war. Lightning strikes where it will. Do we choose any of this? It chooses us and sweeps us along toward ends we can never see."
  • Dermot was silent for a while. He could hardly believe that the boy was right. Brahmins who, being of the priestly caste, claim to be semi divine rather than mere men, will take up professions or clerical work, but with all his experience of India he had never heard of any of them engaging in such manual labour.
  • Oh, that is it! I thought you must have run away from school; got into some scrape, I suppose. Well, my lad, as you have made your bed you must lie in it. But it is not likely that any of them would know you even if they ran up against you. Two years' service under this sun changes a lad of your age wonderfully. By the way, one of them called the other Clinton; do you happen to know whether he is the son of a Captain Clinton--Captain Percy Clinton?
  • Alice felt faint with relief and looked around for the chocolates. Thank God she hadn't eaten any of them. She was planning to steal them back and get rid of them, but they weren't around.
  • "Sorry, yes. Lets just say that these are all infections by organisms that would normally not cause serious illness in a healthy body. Most of us would never get any of these diseases unless the immune system has been negatively impacted first, and then the disease takes thatopportunityto make us sick."
  • "No, nothing too big on the horizon with any of those cases right now. Were actually at a pretty great point in time for us feathered folks. This is just a private case."
  • Poor Miss Seton suffered much from the severe trial she had gone through. It was, I rejoice to say, not without good effects, and I had the opportunity of observing a great improvement in her character. Some years passed by, during which she remained single, but on the death of her mother she became the wife of Sir Lloyd Snowdon; and, living constantly on his estate in Wales, proved a blessing to her family, and to the poorer inhabitants of the surrounding district. May all the trials any of us have to endure have a like good effect; for we may depend on it for that purpose are they sent.
  • Well, I'm glad I didn't bring any of my men in here, said the Captain, as he kicked one of his heavy boots violently against a projection of rock.
  • "It all fits, if you think about it," she said, her eyes still on the building. "This school is the very definition of haughty. Some of the most renowned and talented minds of the last century have either studied or taught here. Very special people, my boys, more special than any of you could know. When you have special people, what better way advertise, than . . . well, this?"
  • "I'm glad you feel the same. You'd think they'd be a little more welcoming. Instead it's like they go out of their way to make sure you know you don't really fit in. We've been here a year, and I still can't get invited to any of the really cool parties."
  • In the mean time, the Skipper, who was known in the Isle of Shepey, and upon other parts of the coast, by the name of Hugh Dalton, proceeded uninterruptedly on his way, up and down the small luxuriant hills, and along the fair valleys of as fertile and beautiful a district as any of which our England can boast, until a sudden turn brought him close upon a dwelling of large proportions and disjointed architecture, that evidently belonged to two distinct eras. The portion of the house fronting the place on which he stood was built of red brick, and regularly elevated to three stories in height; the windows were long and narrow; and the entire of that division was in strict accordance with the taste of the times, as patronised and adopted by the rulers of the Commonwealth.
  • Just below him was the finish of the dangerous fall, and as so often happens, the very last lap proved to be more heavily charged with disaster than any of those above, even though they appeared to be far worse.
  • Akman may have had scant patience with Islam, but it had grown obvious he had no desire to become a Christian either. He was an intellectual who amused himself by questioning the ideas and teachings of all faiths, with the inevitable result that he always found something in each to affront his own reason. He was, in fact, beginning to form the notion that he himself was as great a leader as any of the spiritual teachers he had heard about, and accordingly should simply declare himself an object of worship. After a decade the three Jesuits finally conceded their first mission was a failure and abjectly returned to Goa.
  • He was dismayed to discover that he was one of at least twenty candidates for the post and his prospective employers had already fallen well behind with their interviewing schedule. He sat on a plastic seat in the large, modern reception area of the converted town house along with half a dozen other candidates, all of whom were much younger, and, mercifully, even more apprehensive, than he was. After a while he noted that the switchboard on the receptionists desk hardly ever rang which was surprising for such a supposedly busy company. He was mildly irritated at the way the bored receptionist did not attempt to engage any of them in conversation or offer them coffee. Instead she spent most of her time on the phone to a friend, a conversation he was obliged to overhear.
  • As yet the Air Service Boys had not been engaged with any of the hostile planes, though most of the other Yankee pilots seemed to be having their hands full in meeting and repelling fierce attacks.
  • "I will refer your question to Paul here," replied John. "He is the one who worked out this idea of using helium in an airplane and giving it the best properties of a dirigible without any of the dirigible's handicap of clumsiness and excessive wind resistance. He has been studying the properties of helium in school, also the flight of birds."
  • There are two smaller splinters from the ROT militia, the Texas Convention Pro-Continuation 1861 (TCPC), and the so called 10th Congress, which meets at the small town of Washington-on-the-Brazos. The 10th Congress website claims "Any outfit that is not part of the 10th Congressclaiming to be any of the Republic of Texas is bogus and aside from treason is probably involved in serial frauds." Other portions of the clumsy website describe their "evidenice of recognition."
  • It was the 11 of us against Dinkleman and Woodbridge, who was a fast-pitch softball player in college. I don't think any of us were prepared for the torture that would follow.
  • Try any of the species gladiolus they are beautiful and delicate and really quite different from the loud and sometimes brash cultivated varieties.
  • I know it. But I can manage it. Then you come on up behind Len, casual like. If he has any of our cattle--by mistake, said Pete, significantly, "we'll be in a position to correct his error. Nothin' like correctin' errors right off the reel, Dave. Well have him between two fires, so to speak."
  • Inducement of any kind had been received from any of the persons mentioned.
  • Them darkies do sometimes blunder on a lucky idee, answered Mr. Marble to one of my earnest representations, "and I've known chaps among 'em that were almost as knowing as dullish whites; but everything out of the common way with 'em is pretty much chance. As for Neb, however, I will say this for him; that, for a nigger, he takes things quicker than any of his colour I ever sailed with. Then he has no sa'ce, and that is a good deal with a black. White sa'ce is bad enough; but that of a nigger is unbearable."
  • I appreciate that, but I can't have you go with me now. It would probably kill you, and you'd slow me down. I guess it doesn't really matter anymore. I can't think of anything else to do. The dwarves won't listen to me. They'll continue to attack. The algors will send their sand giants and the elves will drop the seeds. I guess it'll all be over soon enough. No way to stop any of it now. It still bothers me, though, even after seeing all this destruction. The entire city of Dunop shouldn't be destroyed just because one woman went mad with grief. I only hope the delay I caused didn't lead to more deaths in Burbon. That would be hard to live with.
  • Two days later, Oswald started for his promised visit to the Armstrongs. It was not considered necessary that he should be accompanied by any of the troopers, for Hiniltie lay but a few miles across the frontier. In high spirits he galloped away and, riding through Yardhope, was soon at Alwinton; and thence took the track through Kidland Lee, passed round the head of the Usmay brook, along the foot of Maiden Cross Hill, and crossed the frontier at Windy Guile. Here he stood on the crest of the Cheviots and, descending, passed along at the foot of Windburgh Hill; and by noon entered the tiny hamlet of Hiniltie, above which, perched on one of the spurs of the hill, stood the Armstrongs' hold. It was smaller than that of Yardhope, and had no surrounding wall; but, like it, was built for defence against a sudden attack.
  • "Why don't you get a glass eye, Craney?" and he says, "I wished you'd call me J. R. Phipp. What you doing with that there ship?" which was a promising rhyme, but he didn't know he'd done it. I judged his family name had been collecting barnacles, till it wasn't worth cleaning maybe, or maybe he was a fugitive or exile from Corazon, or maybe he'd speculated in matrimony, and was fleeing from hot water, or maybe kettles, or maybe he'd assassinated his great aunt's second cousin's husband, which was no business of mine, any of it.
  • Then you see that we've got no other course save to deal out the same dose for all, 'cause we're not countin' on losin' any of you.
  • With all of the guys in my suite being non-Jewish, it was impossible to confide in any of them. The hardest part of learning for me is always the pain that accompanies the process. My dad even thought I was lying when I told him I was the best player on the team. But, the basketball situation was the least of my problems.
  • Try to find out for me among the miners if a man by the name of Andrew Seldon is known to any of them, and, if so, where he is.
  • Of course he will, Guy answered, bitterly. "There's no hope for any of us. It's useless to count on Jewan, for of course he has marched away to Cawnpore with the troops."
  • 1 October.--I am puzzled afresh about Renfield. Her moods change so rapidly that I find it difficult to keep touch of them, and as they always mean something more than her own well-being, they form a more than interesting study. This morning, when I went to see her after her repulse of Van Helsing, her manner was that of a woman commanding destiny. She was, in fact, commanding destiny, subjectively. She did not really care for any of the things of mere earth, she was in the clouds and looked down on all the weaknesses and wants of us poor mortals.
  • Until recently, and still unbeknownst to most of the White Order, there was no reason for any distrust or malevolence to be harbored by any of the wizards toward each other, and therefore locking ones door, magically or otherwise, remained unheard of within the walls of Crysmir. Stopping outside the door leading into Loewens private housing, Jian hoped that the older wizard had not risked drawing any attention to himself by now breaking this tradition. But, figuring that the door may very well still be enchanted in some other way, Jian did a quick spell to test this, finding no magical energy about the room whatsoever. Looking down the corridor to make sure he was still alone, he stepped into the room, moving cautiously. And so he shouldif both Loewen and Clail were waiting to keep him from collecting Gauvins shard, he was in for some serious trouble. He would not survive if forced to battle both of them together.
  • If that train robber should send a bullet out this way, you wouldn't think it so funny! Tommy declared. "He's a mighty suspicious fellow. He wouldn't permit me to wake any of the boys to help get supper."
  • You can click on any of the thumbnail images below, to see a larger version.
  • When the old buck is started from his bed and is frightened how he clears the ground. You can mark him from twenty to thirty feet at every jump. (I have measured some of his jumps, by pacing, and found them to be very long, sometimes two rods.) How plump he is, how symmetrically his body is formed, and how beautiful the appearance of his towering, branching antlers! As he carries them on his lofty head they appear like a rocking chair. As he sails through the air, with his flag hoisted, he sometimes gives two or three of his whistling snorts and bids defiance to all pursuers in the flight. He is able to run away from any of his enemies, in a fair foot race, but not always able to escape from flying missiles of death.
  • Waking up Monday morning, she couldnt keep certain images from her mind. All of the anguish on Connors face as he revealed the pattern on his chest and how he was preparing himself for the worst of her expectations, kept being repeated over and over in her mind. His story about how the mark painfully seared into him gave her the chills every time her mind touched the subject. And the relief that washed over him as she told him that she loved him made her melt. The truth was that the mark over his chest made him look even manlier. Rugged and dangerous personified the mark. At least to her it did. His godly musculature and their first real kissIll never forget any of it.
  • They were by now tramping along again. Trying to forget the ugly part of the affair, Thad was picturing in his mind what the home of Reuben Sparks might be like. He was a rich man, Bob had said, and in close touch with the moonshiners; though the Government had never been able to connect him with any of the illicit Stills that had been raided from time to time during the last dozen years. And so it was only natural to believe that he must have surrounded himself with some of the comforts of civilization, while remaining in this wild region. Words let fall by Bob had given Thad this impression; as though they were going to be surprised when the home of little Cousin Bertha was come upon.
  • Freckles removed his hat and solemnly held out his hand. With equal solemnity the Angel grasped it. The Bird Woman laughed alone, for to them the situation had been too serious to develop any of the elements of fun.
  • "Prince Pavula," Judson nodded, almost as though he was welcoming the man to his court for a friendly visit. With great inward relief, he noted that the prince seemed not to be carrying any of his usual instruments of torture, although his mace hung at his side. The king then watched with sudden alarm as a frown slid across the princes face; truly, this mans mood could change in less than a blink of an eye, more often than not becoming fiercely violent.
  • A Prince had some Monkeys trained to dance. Being naturally great mimics of men's actions, they showed themselves most apt pupils, and when arrayed in their rich clothes and masks, they danced as well as any of the courtiers. The spectacle was often repeated with great applause, till on one occasion a courtier, bent on mischief, took from his pocket a handful of nuts and threw them upon the stage. The Monkeys at the sight of the nuts forgot their dancing and became (as indeed they were) Monkeys instead of actors. Pulling off their masks and tearing their robes, they fought with one another for the nuts. The dancing spectacle thus came to an end amidst the laughter and ridicule of the audience.
  • It was Sunday afternoon, before I had the chance to talk to Doug. Really talk, beyond the half-hearted and quickly forgotten how-was-your-day and regular back and forth about groceries to pick up or minor social obligations. Not that this was much of a topic anymore either. Times had changed since the old days of his frequent must attend cocktail parties and client dinners, though he still had some commitments. Both of us did, although it amused me, when I noticed, how rare it was for any of these to keep us out past 8 oclock.
  • An hour slipped by without interruption. An occasional burst of laughter floated down the corridor. At some distance away, on the same deck of barracks in Bancroft Hall, a midshipman was industriously twanging away on a banjo. Darrin, however, absorbed in his novel, paid no heed to any of the signs of Saturday-night jollity. He was a third of the way through an exciting tale when there came a knock on the door---a moment later a head was thrust in.
  • I sank back on my seat. My head hurt too much to think about any of this. Was I even doing the right thing? Wouldn't it be better for all of this to come out in the open and for everyone to know the truth? It seemed to me like I was dooming mankind to be food one way or the other. Granted, we were food right now and didn't know it, and I was beginning to feel that maybe ostriches have the right idea.
  • That day and the next passed without incident of a special nature. Sick and wounded were cared for by the surgeon, and a detachment went out, accompanied by Sam Benson and Hank Leeson, to look for any of the soldiers who had been attacked by the Indians or desperadoes and who might still be alive.
  • On our side of the river the Spanish army, which had never hitherto taken an active part in any of our general actions, now claimed the post of honour, and advanced to storm the strongest part of the heights. Our division was ordered to support them in the low grounds, and, at the same time, to threaten a point of the canal; and Picton, who was on our right, was ordered to make a false attack on the canal. These were all that were visible to us. The remaining divisions of the army were in continuation to the left.
  • Meena inhaled slowly through her nose and looked up at the arching blue sky for several seconds before speaking. "If there was something about hair color at all in any of those legends, wouldnt you have mentioned it to me at the beginning with all the other nonsense?"
  • Javal led them out of the chambers, the echoing of steel upon steel ringing in their ears well after. Back to the platform he guided them to the first ladder. When they had reached the ground, the dwarven King took them even further west then turned abruptly into another tunnel. This one much longer than the first, wooden braces shoved against the wall every few feet. The group walked deeper than any of them would have imagined. Behind them the light pouring in from the massive entrance was now only a tiny speck of white against the murky yellow given off by the lanterns.
  • He was a big fellow in the first place, while Napoleon was small. Size of body doesn't always count. Some of the greatest men the world has produced have been small of stature. But George Washington was a big fellow. Like Lincoln, he could outwrestle, outthrow, and outjump any of his mates. They still show a spot down in Fredericksburg where he stood and threw a stone across the Rappahannock River. He didn't seem to know the meaning of fear. From his early youth he was a fine horseman, taming and riding horses that nobody else could manage.
  • Those who knew Tavia would scarcely have recognized her now, could they have viewed her through the glass with which she was magnifying her faults. Tavia had been tried, she had tried herself, and after having had an opportunity to board any of three trains going toward camp, here she was again stranded!
  • Four sentries were posted, one at each corner of the fort, and the rest of the garrison lay down to sleep. Twice during the night they sprang to their feet at the discharge of the gun of one of the sentries, but as no movement of the enemy followed they soon lay down again, supposing that either the alarm had been a false one, and that the sentry had fired at some low bush, or that, if he had really seen a man, the latter had made off as soon as he had discovered that the garrison were awake and vigilant. As soon as the moon set the sheik despatched one of the young men to the wady. His instructions were to crawl carefully, taking advantage of every bush until he deemed himself well beyond any of the enemy who might be watching, and then to start at full speed. If he were fired at, he was, if the enemy were still in front of him, to run back to the zareba; if they were behind him, to press forward at full speed.
  • The hall was empty but for a pair of serving girls sitting on a bench near the unfired hearth. Longsword recognized one of them and gestured to her to bring him a pitcher. After two years he still hadnt learned any Welsh and couldnt seem to remember even the few words for his basic needs, such as wine, that Delamere had taught him. But he had noted that this particular servant was quick to understand his simple gestures and that she had a less likely chance of messing up his orders than any of the other ones.
  • Gentlemen and friends, announced the superintendent, "I take the greatest pleasure that may come to any of us in introducing our chief---the Secretary of the Navy."
  • At Mr. Drake's trailer, Gwenny and Johnny Tepes sat on the couch with their heads close together. I sat in the dinette booth with my back against the wall and my feet up, which Ma always told me not to do and Mr. Drake never told me not to do. I watched him make tea, and I wanted to ask him about a lot of things, but I did not understand any of them well enough to form my questions.
  • But it had not yet entered their minds that they might be unable to kill any of the wild animals with which the place abounded. Had they thought so, they would have been unhappy indeed--perhaps so anxious as not to have slept another wink for that night. But they did not yet contemplate the future so despondingly. They hoped that, even without their guns, they would still be enabled to procure sufficient game for their support; and as they all lay awake, just before the breaking of the day, this became the subject of their conversation.
  • Strog spoke quickly, pressing the matter to a head. "But this is not a rumor. He knew of a fact, he knew of our plans to attack. You ask us to speak to him, to allow him to convince us the algors deserve no blame. But how can we trust him, if it seems as if he has knowledge of secret plans? What if he had warned the algors? Many dwarves would have died. You have to explain how he knew this before we can trust any of his own explanations."
  • There was a reported break-in some doors down this street. Did any of you notice anything or hear anything that might now seem worth mentioning to us, to aid our investigation?’
  • "Do you know what jail is like?" Todd asked sadly. "MomI mean, I guess my foster momshe used to say that if I ever wound up in jail, to not bother ever coming home. She said that her uncle had been in jail and she never wanted for any of her kids to end up there. She said that it smelled like my grandfathers house and you couldnt eat ice cream, only brussels sprouts and liver all day long."
  • My group was the last to present and once Jorge hooked our laptop up to a projector, Zoe took the lead in explaining our vision. We had flirted with mixing other colors into our blue scheme in the past, but never actually released products into the wild. I had not seen any of the work that Zoe produced and was just as eager as the other people to see what she came up with. Her three-dimensional presentation was entertaining and started with a twist.
