  • Emil? I asked Porky. "Your real name is Emil?" I was amused. "Emil Flores, that'd be a great name if you were a Belgian florist." I continued reading, ‘I want you to know how much I've treasured the time we've spent together these last few years in school. You made trigonometry bearable and I don't think I'll ever stop laughing at your impersonations of Mr. Souleyou've brought so much laughter into my life and nobody knows better than you how much I needed that.
  • I am rather glad to have a word alone with you,"" says he, ""because in our first interview there were some expressions you misapprehended and I have long meant to set you right upon. My daughter stands beyond doubt. So do you, and I would make that good with my sword against all gainsayers. But, my dear David, this world is a censorious place--as who should know it better than myself, who have lived ever since the days of my late departed father, God sain him! in a perfect spate of calumnies? We have to face to that; you and me have to consider of that; we have to consider of that."" And he wagged his head like a minister in a pulpit."
  • "I protest that I take wise men who crow so at thesesetkind of fools as no better than the foolszanies!"—their poor imitators.
  • But I knew better than to take the bait with Mags sitting there, eager for his attention and sensitive to slights toward either of her kids. I returned his look, an eyebrow slightly raised, daring him to say a thing.
  • He thought he would like nothing better than to become one of the band, and in some way repay the great debt he owed them by doing as he had been done by.
  • Thad, you say? asked Step Hen; just as though the leader could determine the nature of the calamity better than any one else.
  • It is a proof of the waywardness of human nature that we bear great misfortunes better than small ones. So it proved with Mark, on this occasion; for, much as he really regarded Bob, and serious as was the loss of his friend to himself, the effects of the inundation occupied his thoughts, and disturbed him more, just at that time, than the disappearance of the Neshamony. Nevertheless, our young man had not forgotten to look out for the missing boat, in readiness to hail its return with joy. He passed much of the week he was shut up in the ship in her topmast-cross-trees, vainly examining the sea to leeward, in the hope of catching a distant view of the pinnace endeavouring to bear up through the reefs. Several times he actually fancied he saw her; but it always turned out to be the wing of some gull, or the cap of a distant breaker. It was when Mark had come ashore again, and commenced the toil of covering the decayed fish, and of gathering them into piles, that these smaller matters supplanted the deep griefs of his solitude.
  • But the sauve-qui-peut might have been useless without Feisul's capture, for he was just the man to rally a routed army and snatch victory out of a defeat. Nobody knew better than Feisul the weakness of the French communications, and the work of those three traitors was only half done when the cavalry took to its heels. The one man who could possibly save the day had to be bagged and handed over.
  • Brother Jack, continued the captain, "I have dragged you from your club fireside, from your London friends, and made you little better than a labourer here, tell me what shall I do?"
  • The colony had now reached a point when it became necessary to proceed with method and caution. Certain great principles were to be established, on which the governor had long reflected, and he was fully prepared to set them up, and to defend them, though he knew that ideas prevailed among a few of his people, which might dispose them to cavil at his notions, if not absolutely to oppose him. Men are fond of change; half the time, for a reason no better than that it is change; and, not unfrequently, they permit this wayward feeling to unsettle interests that are of the last importance to them, and which find no small part of their virtue in their permanency.
  • Sir Eustace Studley was an excellent dancer too, though he did not often trouble himself to dance as perfectly as he was dancing now. It was not often that he had a partner worthy of his best, and it was a semi conscious habit of his never voluntarily to give better than he received.
  • "Then thould call me thy dear self who was better than thy selfs incorporate, undividable part. How comes it, my husband, oh how comes it now, that thou art estranged from thyself?"
  • I'm ashamed of you. Here you let two absolutely green men step in and do the work you've been at for years, much better than you do it yourselves.
  • The heavy rains had flooded the woods, and the deep worn game trails that we followed were half full of water, while the open meadows and tundra that we occasionally crossed were but little better than miniature lakes. We had made about half of our march and my pack had just begun to grow doubly heavy from constant floundering around in the mire, when we came out into a long and narrow meadow. There were a few dwarf spruce at our end, but the rest of the small opening was free of underbrush.
  • If we can make it, nodded Farley slowly. "I'd like to play, too, but I'm hoping that the Navy can hit on some one better than myself."
  • It is all right, Miss Betty, Dr. Barton said in a curiously husky voice. "You are better than I even dared hope. There is a scar now, but I can promise you that it will be only a faint line in the future, or else will disappear altogether. The very fact that the trouble has concentrated into the one scar shows that the healing has taken place all about it."
  • It was too big a subject for me, and I said so, but Perry seemed to enjoy nothing better than speculating upon it, and after listening with interest to my account of the adventures through which I had passed he returned once more to the subject, which he was enlarging upon with considerable fluency when he was interrupted by the entrance of a Sagoth.
  • During this astounding speech the lady had stolen over to David, and sitting by his side, she placed a soft hand tenderly on his head. As the story was being told, her eyes filled with tears, and leaning forward, she kissed the poor boy's pale brow. When it ended she murmured in English, that was even better than that of the "brigand,"--"Poor boy! poor boy! O, Walter, dearest, how I do wish I could speak Bohemian, so as to tell him how sorry I feel!"
  • "So he did. He is a good fellow, if he is a Chinaman, and far more grateful than many of his white brothers; but I was sighing for the sight of one of my own color, who would understand my wants better than that poor fellow, faithful as he is."
  • Dom Granger, in fact, believed that the Tuareg are Christians, dating from a period which it was necessary to ascertain, but which coincided no doubt with the splendor of the church of Hippon. Even better than I, you know that the cross is with them the symbol of fate in decoration. Duveyrier has claimed that it figures in their alphabet, on their arms, among the designs of their clothes. The only tattooing that they wear on the forehead, on the back of the hand, is a cross with four equal branches; the pummels of their saddles, the handles of their sabres, of their poignards, are cross-shaped. And is it necessary to remind you that, although Islam forbids bells as a sign of Christianity, the harness of Tuareg camels are trimmed with bells?"
  • My intensive two minute investigation revealed nothing noteworthy. They are just like any other group of high school kids. Well, they are all better than average lookingso, maybe the hidden portal in the basement is a direct link to "Beautiful World"??
  • 'I'll just finish this and we'll do it,' he announced in a clear and almost commanding voice. In truth, his heart was beating so wildly it felt as if it was about to shoot out of his chest and disappear down Fitzroy Street. He had never imagined being in such a position. A leader of men. A General, about to win a battle. A hero. He was better than his brother. Eddy had run off, hadn't he? As the second in command, he had just made a tactical withdrawal and was now ready to counter-attack. Pulling one more drag from his cigarette, he tossed it into the gutter and faced the group.
  • "But seriously," said Prince Andrew, "we can at any rate say without boasting that it was a little better than at Ulm..."
  • I turned and saw that she had deliberately slipped to the ground in the very path of the cruel demons who pursued us, thinking that by lightening the burden of my mount it might thus be enabled to bear me to the safety of the hills. Poor child! She should have known John Carter better than that.
  • "Not to brag, but yeah. Even after falling on my head, Im better than half the docs on this floor. Why do you think they let me get away with so much around here?"
  • "You know that Im a good guy. You raised me. Im not nuts, OK? They just wanted to get me out of the way while they did their deal. A week or two and Ill be out again, but it will be too late. Do you believe that you know me better than some girl I met a month ago?"
  • On our return to the coast the boatswain discovered several caverns in the granitic cliffs, sufficiently spacious to house us all and afford storage for the cargo of the Halbrane. Whatever might be our ultimate decision, we could not do better than place our material and instal ourselves in this opportune shelter.
  • During the short time that remained of the term Rupert got on better than he had expected. While the examination was going on Easton invited him to do his work in his private study, gave him his advice as to the passages likely to be set, and coached him up in difficult points, and he came out higher in his form than he had expected to do.
  • Her eyes involuntarily followed his. "Oh. Id say youre better than alright." She let him go and took the rag. No one spoke wile Coursa washed him, except when she asked him to turn around so she could wash his back. Jain focused on the bed sheets. Coursa had been right: everything smelled horrible. Even the straw mattress could have done with some airing out or even changing, but there was no time for all that. She put a clean sheet over the mattress and clean blankets on the side where Joff could easily reach them.
  • I'd heard o' kisses, o' course, Tedda went on, "but they hadn't come my way specially. I don't mind tellin' I was that took aback at that man's doin's he might ha' lit fire-crackers on my saddle. Then we went out jest's if a kiss was nothin', an' I wasn't three strides into my gait 'fore I felt the boss knoo his business, an' was trustin' me. So I studied to please him, an' he never took the whip from the dash - a whip drives me plumb distracted - an' the upshot was that - waal, I've come up the Back Pasture to-day, an' the coupe's tipped clear over twice, an' I've waited till 'twuz fixed each time. You kin judge for yourselves. I don't set up to be no better than my neighbours, - specially with my tail snipped off the way 'tis,- but I want you all to know Tedda's quit fightin' in harness or out of it, 'cep' when there's a born fool in the pasture, stuffin' his stummick with board that ain't rightly hisn, 'cause he hain't earned it."
  • "Good! Now listen. I'll tell you what the old man told me, for naturally I don't remember the last part of the fight any better than you do.
  • 'I get you,' answered the other, 'but I say, Hugh, can't I do something a bit more active? I mean, of course, there's nothing I'd like better than to...' He broke off in mild confusion as Phyllis Benton laughed merrily.
  • "Yes, I am. My arm still hurts and tingles a little but I can move it normally now. It's much better than last night so whatever you did to relieve me worked."
  • "You know me better than that!" he assured her. She picked up a magazine and sat down on the couch beside her husband. A few minutes later she was sadly shaking her head.
  • Close the loopholes, said Samson. "We'll keep out the smoke as long as we can. The door is tough, too, and will stand the flames better than our enemies suppose."
  • And with that their better than you attitude faded into the ether, thought so fuckers. You are nobody, actually you are a Polish secretary's bitch.
  • Mr. Hardinge expressed his heartfelt happiness at having us back again, and, soon after, he ventured to ask if we were satisfied with what we had seen of the world. This was a home question, but I thought it best to meet it manfully. So far from being satisfied, I told him it was my ardent desire to get on board one of the letters-of-marque, of which so many were then fitting out in the country, and to make a voyage to Europe. Rupert, however, confessed he had mistaken his vocation, and that he thought he could do no better than to enter a lawyer's office. I was thunderstruck at this quiet admission of my friend, of his incapacity to make a sailor, for it was the first intimation I heard of his intention. I had remarked a certain want of energy, in various situations that required action, in Rupert, but no want of courage; and I had ascribed some portion of his lassitude to the change of condition, and, possibly, of food; for, after all, that godlike creature, man, is nothing but an animal, and is just as much influenced by his stomach and digestion as a sheep, or a horse.
  • He could not linger too long over one picture, however, for he had discovered that there were others in that volume which were as brilliantly colored and as interesting. On the whole, it was not necessary to hunt for anything better than this the first evening, and it appeared as if he were asking a useless question of the steel-clad warrior in the corner, when at last he turned to him to say:
  • From that point our march across the forest became tragic. Perhaps I can do nothing better than reproduce almost word by word the entries in my diary.
  • Despite her fears, Adriana loves her husband. "Oh, I think him better than I sayand yet would that in otherseyes he were worse! Far from her nest away, a wavering lapwing cries; my heart prays for him, though my tongue do curse."
  • He took something better than a gun, exclaimed Brick, who had meanwhile been examining his pocket. "He took my gold watch, and a purse with thirty dollars in it. I had some more money in a belt, but that's all right."
  • "The long lives we have cause many elves to think of us as better than others. It is not a universal view held by all, but then again, the Empire is not subject to the will of the people, but rather the will of the Emperor."
  • "Hmm. I believe you recall a couple who married at that age," Graice remarked. "Madrre, you remember those times much better than I do. After all, twelve years ago I was still studying my lessons in School, and the event in this piece of his memory occurred before then. Whereas you . . ."
  • Professor Morris said that two of the rooms had been used as dungeons and it was in one of these that Warren found Ivan. He stumbled over him as be opened the door. The boy was bound, but lying on his back, so had been able to hammer on the door with his feet. The sound of pounding had carried even better than his shouts.
  • Her mood was no better than her appearance. When Dylan, greeting her in a loud, friendly voice, came to hoist her up onto his horse, she instead demanded to see Rhirid, who had already started off with Guri and a half dozen other men. More familiar with unpleasant female moods than he wished to be, Dylan dropped the smile and hesitantly suggested the fastest way to see the chief was to mount up and follow him at a quick pace but before the last word passed his lips, Teleri indicated her displeasure with this proposal by turning her back on him.
  • Cominius smiles. "The shepherd knows not thunder from a tabour better than I know the sound of Martiustongue from every less-noble man!"
  • In the prow they talked of it also, but they did not draw from it the same conclusions. There, among the ship's crew, Dingo passed merely for a dog that knew how to read, and perhaps even write, better than more than one sailor on board. As for talking, if he did not do it, it was probably for good reasons that he kept silent.
  • Rachael nearly laughed at the inane question. She released him and moved to an arm's length. "Is anyone alright? I guess I'm better than most. I'm just so glad to see you."
  • I'm a thousand times obliged to you, Corporal Zook, for all you've told me, and I assure you I'm as proud of the lieutenant as you are. Now, I may not be here when the troop gets back to-morrow,--I may have to go back to see if all is well at the ranch; but after their ride they'll all be thirsty, and when I'm very thirsty there's nothing I like better than a glass of cool lager. There is plenty of it on ice at the trader's, and,--you do the entertaining for me, will you? And the corporal found his palm invaded by a fold of crisp greenbacks.
  • Oh, really?’ Adrian peers across the room at Ron, who is now sitting back at his kit and playing something complicated on the cymbals. ‘Im so glad,’ he says, ‘that the poor devils rhythm sense is better than his dress sense.’
  • As I glanced at her every few seconds I realized that it wasnt the way she was dressed that bothered me so much as it was the way she held herself. Like she knew that she was better than everyone else and wasnt afraid to act like it, and that she could dress the way she did and no one would bother her about the message it gave; that she could harass Jackwho originally gave me the impression that no one got the better of himand he wouldnt say anything to stick up for himself. Though I wasnt fond of Jack, I was even less fond of this girl.
  • Sure he was; Mr. Condit had 'phoned to him. There were a dozen neighbors in the house, too, and more acomin' right along. Biggest kind of excitement. Oh! it's going to be town property before night, I guess, and lots of people'll be pointing their fingers at every fellow wearing khaki, and saying they always knew scouts was no better than the law allowed. Oh! wouldn't I like to get hold of that Hen Condit, though.
  • "No, my friend, you might find me a dangerous guest. I have my plans laid, and all will be well. Matters have gone so far now that they can move without my help as far as the arrest goes, though my presence is necessary for a conviction. It is obvious, therefore, that I cannot do better than get away for the few days which remain before the police are at liberty to act. It would be a great pleasure to me, therefore, if you could come on to the Continent with me."
  • After dinner, you return to Rider House, ditch your coat and tie, and sign out. Boys are allowed on the girls' campus until 8:30 pm. Maybe you'll see Heller or one of the girls that she introduced you to. Maybe you'll be able to say something besides "Hi." Saying hi to a girl would be nice. If nothing else, you can see if the girls have the nicer campus. Sometimes anything is better than a book.
  • I saw something better than that, answered the other. "We were aiming with that gun that burst, when in a moment the whole fortress began to jump and quiver, as if some one were raising and lowering it. Fire at such a fortress; hit it!"
  • 'In what is the maker of a book better than the maker of a coat? Needle and thread, pen and ink; cloth uncut and paper unsoiled; where is the preference? except that the tailor's materials are the more costly. In days of yore, the gentlemen of the thimble gave us plenty of stay-tape and buckram; the gentlemen of the quill still give us a quantum sufficit of hard words and parenthesis. The tailor has discovered that a new coat will sit more degage, and wear better, the less it is incumbered by trimmings: but though buckram is almost banished from Monmouth-street, it is still on sale in Paternoster-row.
  • In the common room, it's more amusing; only give me a table to myself. Don't forget my horse. He is a fine beast, and I love him better than I do certain Christians, word of honor!
  • I don't know about that, objected Ned. "I notice that the smell of powder is not so pronounced as it was a while ago. The air in here seems much better than it did before the explosion, and I believe that somewhere a passage has been opened which permits the air to flow in. It seems to me I can smell sweet air."
  • Charger never faltered and, in truth, knew the way better than any of them. There were times that she corrected the path for Catrin before her father or Benjin could even warn her of an upcoming obstacle. When they reached Viewline Pass, her father asked her to stop. Catrin pulled back on the lines until Charger stopped then maintained moderate tension on the lines to keep her stopped. Charger was not accustomed to stopping here, and she fidgeted constantly.
  • The fools woolen motley is soaked through. "Oh, Nuncle, courting holy-water in a dry house is better than this rain-water out odoor! Good Nuncle, in, and ask thy daughtersblessing! Heres a night pities neither wise man nor fool!"
  • Jan, however, had observed them better than Truey; and had they been nearer, he might have further noticed that the creatures had red fiery eyes and a fierce look; that their heads and horns were not unlike those of the African buffalo; that their limbs resembled those of the stag, while the rest corresponded well enough to his "pony." He might have observed, moreover, that the males were larger than the females, and of a deeper brown.
  • Hura thought Jorden would have very little chance of angering her, yet perhaps she was wrong. "If you think that you could come upon a potential hell and produce a world better than my own then you are welcome to try. You have no more power against the Time of Darkness than I, and it was your ignorant choice to walk out of the safety of MY shields and go amongst creatures that have nothing to do with me." The witch noticed that her voice was raised. It was odd for that to happen unintentionally. She paused to consider that.
  • Of course it is! BAM, is jealous of my hat. He thinks his hat is better than mine, but it isn't. Mine is six inches longer than his. Women love my hat. You know what they say about men with big Hats, don't you!
  • "Youve always thought she was the talented and ambitious one, which she is," I told my parents. "Its just that sometimes when shes passionate about a subject, she sees it in black-and-white terms and misses the nuances. Once in a while, I understand people better than she does."
  • Never mind me, Doctor. Only restore him to health and happiness, and it will be of little moment whether he remembers me or not. No one knows better than you do that I am always happy, that's why I am singing all the time.
  • I hope, Mr. Jeorling, our artillery will protect the Halbrane better than the Jane was protected by her guns. To tell the truth, the crew we have would not be sufficient for an expedition of this kind. I have been arranging for recruiting our forces.
  • They were friends again, though he had never fully forgiven her doubt of him. It might be on the cards that some day she would be more to him than a friend. Understanding perfectly the danger of what he proposed, she yet made no protest. The man who would storm her heart must be one who would go the limit, for her standards were those of the outdoor West. She, too, was "game" to the core; and she had never liked him better than she did at this moment. A man must be a man, and take his fighting chance.
  • Wow! All to the merry! cried Phil, and leaping out of the willow chair he occupied, he turned a "cart-wheel" on the lawn. "Say, this fits in better than a set of new teeth, doesn't it?" he went on, enthusiastically.
  • I know many men, of good family and education, still working as common miners in this neighbourhood. Although their life is a rough one, they themselves think it is better than a struggling clerk's life at home; and perhaps they are right. I know one young man, formerly a medical student in England, digging for weekly wages, hired by a company of miners at 2l.
  • Who said he was not in love with you, and that he didn't want never to leave your side again. Yes, it is. I might have known better than to say a thing like that. All the same, it wasn't meant for a challenge, Mermaiden.
  • "He'd make me tell him all about it, and I feel as if I couldn't," muttered the lad. "It tastes more and more bitter every time I think about it, and if Master Rayburn began to ask me questions, he'd get it all out of me, for he has such a way of doing it. I don't believe any one could tell him a lie without being found out. Of course I shouldn't tell him one. No, I won't go. He'd say that I behaved badly, and I don't want to be told, for though I wouldn't own it, I know it better than any one could tell me. Hang the Darleys! I wish there wasn't one on the face of the earth."
  • He was a tall, lithe, clean limbed, rather swarthy but withal handsome Frenchman. He still showed the mark made by Patsy's fist, and whenever he glanced toward the latter there was an ugly gleam in his eyes, as if he would like nothing better than to have an opportunity of repaying that blow with considerable interest.
  • The comandante thus was urged to do it. Senor Zorro found his opponent fighting much better than he had before in Don Carlos Pulido's house at the hacienda. He found himself forced to fight out of a dangerous corner, and the pistol he held in his left hand to intimidate the governor and his host bothered him.
  • "No, no, Master. Battle is better than wives. Moreover, could you think that I would leave you to stand alone in the fray? Why if I did and harm came to you I should die of shame or hang myself and then Karema would never be a queen. So both her trades would be gone, since after marriage she cannot be a Cup, and her heart would break. But here are the gates of Memphis, so we will forget love and think of war."
  • He took it and bit it to see if it was good, and then he said he was going down town to get some whisky; said he hadn't had a drink all day. When he had got out on the shed he put his head in again, and cussed me for putting on frills and trying to be better than him; and when I reckoned he was gone he come back and put his head in again, and told me to mind about that school, because he was going to lay for me and lick me if I didn't drop that.
  • "As we came along the ice-foot, I said, 'You're making money this trip fast. Isn't that better than giving up everything to that sullen girl and a half-breed boy?' Then he seemed sad, and said, 'George, you've made a rascal of me; but, thank God, I've made up my mind to be true to my old comrade at last.'
  • I expressed so decided a willingness to do anything, that the General smilingly said: "I see that you will do; and, as you have explained, it will be no great risk to you personally, I am satisfied to have you make the attempt." After a few more words of friendly caution, the General said, finally: "It will be better that you should make the crossing either above or below, and come up into the city. A few signals may be arranged beforehand with some of the Signal officers, which you can, no doubt, perfect yourself better than I."
  • Yes, he's nineteen. As I was saying, the choice seemed to lie between these two. Wurtzi's paper was a few points better than the other, indeed I think it was one of the best tests turned in to me from any center. On the other hand, the schoolmaster was a graduate of one of the large colleges, had lived most of his life here and in the mountain districts of the State, was prominent in church affairs, and knew everybody. That was why, when I sent the papers to Washington, I recommended him for appointment instead of the boy, of whom I knew nothing except that his examination paper was slightly the better of the two.
  • No one could have been better than you, Jim, said the elder, feeling more calmness than he had yet shown. He realized he was bending in the awful shadow of death, and that but a few more words could pass between him find the one he loved so well.
  • I nodded no. Maybe you think Im mean because of how Ive acted in the narration during previous chapters, but you know what? I really did feel bad. I guess in some respects I should have known about Jake, but that doesnt change the fact that I didnt. It was like Gatsby wanted me to shout out that I was wronghe should have known better than that! I would never admit that out loud.
  • Perhaps this was just reaching too far. Should we have known better than to pursue myth and mysticism? Certainly this channelling was unlike any which had gone before. I said as much.
  • He had made a lifelong habit of seeing everything. And saying almost nothing. He understood well that thoughts unsaid often served better than those voiced too hastly. Whereas the way of others might be flawed by a penchant for the zenana, or jewels, or those intoxicants the Prophet ha so futilely prohibited, Nadir Sharifs sole worldly obsession was powerfrom which nothing, absolutely nothing, had ever turned his head. For a decade he had ruled the Moghul empire in all but name, forwarding to Arangbar only those petitions he favored, holding in advisement any he opposed, counseling the Moghul at every turnbut always through other, unsuspecting voices if the advice was anything save disguised flattery.
  • At one spot this miniature lake was bordered by a patch of reeds of considerable extent, which looked as though it might harbour a few wild duck; therefore, as soon as the wagon was outspanned, the two friends took their shot guns and a couple of dogs which had manifested some talent at retrieving, and made their way toward the reeds, warning Jantje to be careful to water the cattle as far as possible from the spot toward which they were making. Leo, the lion cub, by this time very nearly half-grown, would fain have accompanied the sportsmen, for he had developed an extraordinary attachment to both of his white masters. He loved nothing better than to accompany them on their rambles, and was as obedient as any of the dogs, with whom he was on the best of terms; but it was deemed best on this occasion that he should be taken to water on a leash, with the cattle, and return with them to the wagon. He was therefore left behind, much to his disgust.
  • Aaron got the room. The moment she left, he seized it. Much better than the tiny closet he had been staying in. He put the mattress on the bed and hoovered the floor: it was covered in shreds of paper, bits of card, old panty receipts, a single unsmoked cigarette with the tobacco spilt from it, a single unopened condom, a used condom, a postcard of a mountain (unused). He threw all this away, except the unused condom, which he carefully put in the top drawer of his bedside cabinet beside his BB gun.
  • "He would know better than I. All I can suggest is asking other delvers. They mostly spend time at the Night Watch Inn. But what am I supposed to do? Just go up to total strangers, ask them if they are delvers and then ask them if they know of the secrets in Sanctum Mountain? I don't think that would be wise."
  • "Well, when they closed their League offices that was a sign that they cared no longer about Mr. Jabez Wilson's presence--in other words, that they had completed their tunnel. But it was essential that they should use it soon, as it might be discovered, or the bullion might be removed. Saturday would suit them better than any other day, as it would give them two days for their escape. For all these reasons I expected them to come to-night."
  • A steamer was got ready; a number of sightseeing enthusiasts were collected, and they set forth on the morning of the 26th of May. Among these excursionists was our friend Captain David Roy--not that he was addicted to running about in search of "fun," but, being unavoidably thrown idle at the time, and having a poetical turn of mind--derived from his wife--he thought he could not do better than take a run to the volcano and see how his son was getting along.
  • Once that Bert fully understood the purpose of this daily record, and the principle upon which the prize-giving was based, he determined to be among the prize winners at the end of the term. His ambition was fired by what the older boys told him of the beautiful books awarded, and the honour it was to get one of them. He knew that he could not please his father or mother better than by being on the prize list, and so he applied himself to his lessons with a vigour and fidelity that soon brought him to the notice of the observant doctor.
  • "Does this look like the same quality as the foyer ya just walked through?" he asked irritably. "Whoe'er did this had no finesse, no skill at all. Just wanted to get into the city and grab whate'er wasn't nailed down. Little more'n grave robbers," he added for good measure, although it was unclear if he was disgusted by the grave-robbers, or the poor quality of their stonework. It occurred to Aiden that they were basically walking into a giant tomb, and were little better than grave robbers themselves. He refrained from asking Clavis what made them any different to the people who carved their way in here countless years ago.
  • But hunger called loudly; I could resist no longer, and having cut off its head, I skinned it as well as I could in the dark. Then stripping the flesh from the bones, I put a morsel of it in my mouth. It tasted infinitely better than I could have expected. There was no rankness, no disagreeable flavour. I wondered how I could have had so much objection to eating raw rat. I scraped the bones clean.
  • If you think you could knock me down, quivered Midshipman Jetson, "you'd better go ahead and find out whether your guess is correct. Dalzell, you've been highly insulting, and I don't mind declaring that a fight with you would suit me, at present, better than anything that I can think of."
  • Gradually the stiffness wore off, and at the end of a couple of hours they were traveling with some degree of comfort. Pat purposely set an easy pace for the first few miles and he kept a watchful eye on Sparrer, for whom he felt personally responsible. As a matter of fact the youngster was standing it even better than the other two. For one thing, he was considerably lighter, and his shoes bore him up better than was the case with his companions. In places where the snow was packed he did not sink in at all, whereas the others broke through slightly, and on soft snow he did not begin to sink as far as they did. Of course this meant far less strain on his muscles, and greater ease in walking.
  • My breakfast consisted of a cup of coffee; and as the generous nectar warmed my veins my thoughts took a philosophical turn. It is fate who writes the was, the is, and the shall be. We have a proverb for every joy and misfortune. It is the only consolation fate gives us. It is like a conqueror asking the vanquished to witness the looting. All roads lead to Rome, and all proverbs are merely sign posts by which we pursue our destinies. And how was I to get to Rome? I knew not. Hope is better than clairvoyance.
  • Eric was still a little confused. Jonathan stood there, ready for round two. Val grabbed both of them and gave them was sharp tug into reality. "C'mon! Let's go!" She knew better than to wait around for the police. Teenaged weekends on downtown street corners taught her to avoid the police at every turn. Her friends obeyed and the fled.
  • "So if I dont play a hole and I get zero, thats even better than a hole in one, right?" Kendra reasoned, making Avery cringe. She couldnt believe they were only on the fifth hole. This nightmare seemed to be dragging on forever.
  • Jim Stalin knew his comic books better than anyone. He figured that he had nothing to lose by throwing it at the bad guy. Since the bad guy needed to die in order for this long and tedious chapter to end he wound up and threw it solidly at James Mickenbachers head.
  • We shall feel out of place, mused Dave aloud. "Dan, we really should have known better than to come here in anything but evening dress. You see that every one else is in full regalia."
  • Down he sat, and he came near forgetting his breakfast, so intensely was he absorbed by that guide-book. He shut it up, at last, however, remarking: I'll have breakfast, and then I'll go out and see Albany. It's all I've got to do till the boat leaves this evening. First city I ever saw."" He ate with all the more satisfaction because he knew that he was not eating up any part of his nine dollars, and it did not seem like so much money as it would have seemed in Crofield. He was in no haste, for he had no idea where to go, and did not mean to tell anybody how ignorant he was. He walked out of the Delavan House, and strolled away to the right. Even the poorer buildings were far better than anything in Crofield or Mertonville, and he soon had a bit of a surprise. He reached a corner where a very broad street opened, at the right, and went up a steep hill. It was not a very long street, and it ended at the crest of the hill, where there were some trees, and above them towered what seemed to be a magnificent palace of a building."
  • I suspect that Hulton's nerve is better than yours or mine, and although I'm sorry for the old man. It was a surprise to me when he broke down, Featherstone replied. "This is the first time I've been in the mill since Fred was shot, and I'll own that I'd sooner have come in daylight."
  • You have done exceedingly well, Mr. Gaskette, and I think the professor can ask for nothing better than you have given him, replied the commander.
