  • Wyck will arrive a stranger here. He will enquire for the best hotel, and will be told the 'York.' He will tip the man, and ask him if there are any good-looking girls there, and he will be told that old Ford won't have a barmaid about the place, and is fearfully particular. Then he'll ask for another, and he ought either to be told of the South Australian Club, the United Service, or the Southern Cross. All these keep saloon bars, so we cannot do better than enquire at them.
  • Mr. Passmore, I'll leave this matter to you, answered the elderly gentleman. "You know those young men better than I do."
  • Paddington slept a good five hours in his own bed. When he awoke he showered, shaved, changed into a fresh suit, and climbed into his car. His own car. Not Quentins. Not Quentins clothes. He felt better than he had in three days, when the Team had first arrived.
  • "And still they say they can't come back," he remarked at last. "Why, you're better than you ever were, Stella. You've got the old sweetness and flexibility that dad used to rave about. But your voice is bigger, somehow different. It gets under a man's skin."
  • Oh, I don't know, said Wright. "You pick up things pretty fast. I've been paid for whatever I've done. But apart from that I've been with this concern a good many years and your father always treated me well. Funny if I wouldn't do all I could for you. You've come pretty near making good so far. You made the big cut that your father planned to make and you brought the logs down. That's all he could have done, and I tell you not even Crooks knows the logging business better than he did.
  • Deeply as Frank had been moved at being brought through his own generous impulse into such close quarters with death, the excitement and bustle of the days immediately following the event so filled his mind that the impression bade fair to pass away again, leaving him no better than he had been before. But it was not God's purpose that this should be the result. Before the good effects of that brief prayer meeting in the water were entirely dissipated, another influence came to their support. Although he knew it not, he was approaching the great crisis of his life, and by a way most unexpected; he was shortly to be led into that higher plane of existence, toward which he had been slowly tending through the years of his friendship with Bert.
  • The Bulgarian peasants are indeed very close to the Russians of the south, where there has been a mixture of Tartar blood. Simple, laborious, religious, frugal, they deserve better than to be food for powder.
  • The Russians did not seek out the best position but, on the contrary, during the retreat passed many positions better than Borodino. They did not stop at any one of these positions because Kutuzov did not wish to occupy a position he had not himself chosen, because the popular demand for a battle had not yet expressed itself strongly enough, and because Miloradovich had not yet arrived with the militia, and for many other reasons. The fact is that other positions they had passed were stronger, and that the position at Borodino (the one where the battle was fought), far from being strong, was no more a position than any other spot one might find in the Russian Empire by sticking a pin into the map at hazard.
  • "I don't care," said Burt, "let's leave a couple o' men to skin him anyhow. Even black an' white ought to make a mighty fine trophy. Snake skin keeps better than fur, anyhow."
  • Come, old man, he said compassionately; "suppose you turn in for a few hours. I should have known better than to rub you on the raw when you were all worn out. When you get a little rested we can talk this matter over again, or if you'd rather, I'll say nothing more about it."
  • So am I, added Chester, stretching himself out on the warm sand. "This is better than those stuffy little bunks in the cabin, isn't it?"
  • Mark made jokes about how specific I was in my instructions, as if I thought Harvey actually understood me. Those jokes made me hugely uncomfortable, since he also noticed that Harvey obeyed me better than anyone else.
  • Bravely enough, but not well, replied Zuroaga. "We have not one scientific, thoroughly educated engineer officer fit to take charge of the defences against, for instance, General Scott. Not even Santa Anna himself, with all his ability, is a general capable of checking the invaders after they have taken Vera Cruz, and that they will do. He is a scheming politician rather than a military genius. He and Paredes and some others whom you and I could name must be whipped out of power before we can put up an entirely new government, better than any we have ever had yet. What do you think about it?"
  • No. I don't want anything better than this. Let's sit still and enjoy ourselves. I suppose there will be something for me to ride if I look for it?
  • 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.
  • The relief forces leader, meanwhile, was escorted into the castle. Not that he needed an escorthe seemed to know the castle better than the guards. They were heading for the library, where Robert Hall the Incompetent conducted his work. As they walked through the halls, they passed several servants. All of them noticed who the relief leader wasthey all wore the same look of shock as he walked past.
  • Do not say so, Virginia, till you hear me out. As I have already said, the Recluse loves you better than he does any creature in the colony. He knows all the plots and counterplots that are going on, and if you will surprise him with a visit to-night, he will divulge the whole affair to you.
  • Although mildly disappointed that we didnt detour to his apartment, I found myself again excited about seeing his home. We drove in silence for a long while, not the uncomfortable silence following an argument but the silence that comes from quiet anticipation. The truck turned off the main road, and the sun was nearly blocked out from the canopy of branches from the trees on either side. We stayed on this shadowed road for just a few minutes when we came to a brick entryway with huge iron gates. Max reached up to a compartment in the roof and pushed what looked like a garage door opener, and the two immense gates opened wide for us to drive through. The lane from the gate wound on for better than a mile. Each side of the drive was lined by large Crape Myrtle trees spaced about a car length apart.
  • Well, do you know, said Anson, in a confidential way, "I don't think I should make a bad one. I know I should like it better than the work I do now. But look what a big strong fellow this one is. I wonder whether he has any."
  • Tell me, please, is Father very bad? I can bear anything better than suspense, she said, keeping her voice steady by a great effort.
  • In truth he had done things during these last few weeks to make her think so, having never missed an opportunity to stop and pass a word with her, at the same time showing her a queer courtesy and consideration quite foreign to his saturnine habits. She had never mentioned the fact to her father or the others, for she had developed a sort of sympathy for the man, and felt that she understood him better than they did.
  • She didnt know what to do or think. Serenity wanted to hurt herself, punish herself for her actions. She was worse than Jackson had ever been; an evil, horrible, terrible person. Her hands repulsed her. She wanted to scrape off her skin, cut off her fingers so she would never have to look at the things that held the knife. Physical pain would be better than the gut wrenching anguish clutching at her soul.
  • Even better than the first album; gloomy, funny, punky, zombie hip-hop pop.
  • "That is not true, dear," said Mrs Dennis, gravely. "I know Marion better than you do, because you have always shut your heart against her."
  • Cuthbert understood better than words could have told him what the nature of that battle under the stars must have been, and to show his sympathy for this new but dear chum he impulsively thrust out his hand and gripped that of Owen.
  • Why, Miles, my dear boy, you know how it is with the world--how it is with these English, in particular. They think everything of rank, you know, and are devotees of style and appearance, and all that sort of thing, you know, as no one understands better than myself; for I pass most of my time in the English set, you know.
  • Do not say so, Virginia, till you hear me out. As I have already said, the Recluse loves you better than he does any creature in the colony. He knows all the plots and counterplots that are going on, and if you will surprise him with a visit to-night, he will divulge the whole affair to you.
  • He is appalled by the noblemans extravagant generosity. If I want gold, steal but a beggars dog and give it to Timon; why, the dog coins gold! If I would sell my horse and buy two more, better than it, why, give my horse to Timonask nothing, give it himand it foals me straight a stable of horses!
  • Jorden Miles was dismayed to learn that there were at least two security personnel on the ship and both were armed. Fortunately they kept their weapons well secured at their hip, and neither seemed in the least interested in using them. There was no reason to. Jorden had offered no futile resistance, and now sat calm in the corner of the office. He actually felt better than Peter currently looked, and he had a feeling that the crewman who had taken him to the control room would be in just as much hot water. He shrugged. That was someone else's problem and he had enough of his own.
  • "I'll do it, Shean." I said: "Maybe this will make you feel better. The last I saw Crandall, he was flat on his fanny. He was growing a lump on his jaw that'll be as big as an egg by now. You see?" I showed him the skinned knuckles on my hand and he though that was swell. He told me where he'd left my car, and started back to the hotel, and I took another little snifter of the UDL and thought I'd done better than a green hand on the Crandall job at that. The only way I could have hit him any harder would have been to have been bigger. I only weigh a hundred and ninety and that limits how hard you can sock.
  • Dave's kiosk is near the centre of town. The buses are spewing workers on to the pavements. Everyone is hurrying, plugged into Ipods, scowling like the devil is on their back. The stink of diesel makes me feel bad. I stand off to the side while Dave serves the red-eyed commuters their caffeine fix. I know better than to get in the way of these people this time of morning. When it quiets down I get a coffee and ask Dave if he's seen Mickey.
  • The kind captain, after the conversation I have mentioned, invited me into the cabin every day, and took great pains in instructing me in reading and writing. Until I could do so myself, he read a portion of God's Word, which he explained to me in a very simple and clear manner. I did my utmost to learn, as I was now of an age to be ashamed of my ignorance, especially when I found that the two ship's boys read and wrote far better than I did. Every moment that I was off duty I was at my studies, and when Dick found what progress I made, he declared his intention of setting to work to learn to read himself. I did my best to help him, and the captain kindly lent him some books that he might instruct himself. In about four months I could read with perfect ease and write very fairly, besides having gained some knowledge of arithmetic and geography. As to history, I found I had a very confused knowledge, and jumbled events together in a curious way.
  • "Of course they did! God knows how ... But besides all that, wouldnt they view Aedanthe kingsown audacity, his own arrogance, as no better than Necrolius’? Wouldnt they believe him to be as bad as Necrolius? I mean, hes a Mathematician too! And you said that the surrounding nations had been made aware of that by Trajan, and that was a large part of the reason for their rejecting him! They may very well think hes in league with Necrolius! And here he is, making it worse for himself, practically confirming their fears! Is he crazy? What the hell is he doing?"
  • Swaying unsteadily, forced to look up at him even when standing, she said softly, "You have killed him, have you? Well, then it is time I told you a secret. You may have tricked him into an ambush, but you could never beat him in a fair fight. He is better than you. And do you know why?" Hoarsely she whispered the words: "Because he is your brother!"
  • He turned the next corner, hesitated a moment in front of a garishly lighted dance hall, and finally shuffled in through the door, made his way across the floor, nodding here and there to the elite of gangland, and, with a somewhat arrogant air of proprietorship, sat down at a table in the corner. Little better than a tramp in appearance, certainly the most disreputable-looking object in the place, even the waiter who approached him accorded him a certain curious deference--was not Larry the Bat the most celebrated dope fiend below the dead line?
  • I don't like this man Jamison any better than you do, the officer said, speaking to Frank and Dr. Pelton, "but the case did look rather bad for the boys, and I had to do something."
  • Lovely.’ Clara gave her a bright smile. Well, she reflected, a dinner partys no funeralbut its better than nothing.
  • The fact is, sir, continued Joe, kindling with enthusiasm, "that your nephy has gone through a deal o' rough work since he left home, an' I'm free for to say has learned, with myself, a lot o' walooable lessons. He has made his fortin at the gold-mines, kooriously enough, without diggin' for it, an' has come for to know that it's sometimes possible to pay too high a price for that same metal, as is proved by many an' many a lonely grave in the wilds of Californy. Your nephy an' me, sir, has comed to the conclusion that distributin' gold is better than diggin' for it, so we intends to set up in that line, an' hopes that your honour will go into pardnership along with us."
  • 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.
  • We'll stop here, said the old scout, leaping to the ground, followed by the boys. "This aint the best place in the world, but it's better than the open, in such a blow as is coming."
  • At last his growing insanity reached its climax; and one day in Notre Dame, when he had painted better than usual, he suddenly stopped, seized a palette knife, and slashed the great canvas in strips. Hlose sprang forward to stop him, and in crazy fury he turned on her, striking at her throat with the palette knife. The thin steel snapped, and the white throat showed only a scarlet scratch. Hlose, without that ordinary terror that would crush most women, grasped the thin wrists of the madman, and, though he could easily have wrenched his hands away, d'Yriex sank on his knees in a passion of tears. He shut himself in his room at Pontivy, refusing to see any one, walking for hours up and down, fighting against growing madness. Soon Dr. Charpentier came from Paris, summoned by Mme. de Bergerac; and after one short, forced interview, left at once for Paris, taking M. d'Yriex with him.
  • "They have their nannies and servants," he replied. "They live at the palace. And your sister can take care of them better than Morwenna. Besides, I don't think anyone wants Jessamine's place..."
  • Just then Shanter was seen crossing the front, munching away at a great piece of damper made from the new flour Sam German had brought up from Port Haven, it having been necessary for an expedition with a wagon and horses to be made at intervals of two or three months to replenish stores. They had had visitors, too, upon three occasions: the young doctor, Mr Freeston, and the sugar-planter, Mr Henley, having found their way to the station; the latter, as he said, being rather disposed to take up land in that direction, as it seemed far better than where he was, while the doctor casually let drop a few words to the boys at their last visit, that he thought it would be a good part of the country for him to settle in too.
  • "Every creature deserves a basic amount of respect. Unless, of course, you consider yourself better than everyone else," Catrin replied.
  • Good! exclaimed Jack. "Then I think I can see my way. We will do better than go out to intercept the American, Don Hermoso; we will render it impossible for either of those three Government craft to go out of harbour on that day. But when the authorities find their three steamers disabled, they may take it into their heads to throw a few soldiers on board a sailing craft of some sort and send her out to endeavour to capture the James B. Potter; therefore you had better send word to the people who are to receive the goods that, while they need not fear a warship of any kind, they had better be prepared to fight a few soldiers, if necessary."
  • Keither knew the others were crazy. How could they possibly be enjoying themselves? "There are bugs everywhere, and the bees…" he thought to himself. There was a reason he stayed in the house all day, and this was it. What if one stung him? Could he die from it? He didnt know, but he heard one time that someone had died from a bee sting. They stopped breathing and everything. Did these morons not know that? He kept his head down all day and he didnt answer too many of the questions that Arkin would ask Legon and Sasha, not that it mattered anyway. He spent most of his time telling them to clear their heads and stuff like that. When there was a question he almost always got it right, even if he didnt answer. They were easy really, all hypothetical questions, not unlike the stuff he thought about on his own all the time. He was amazed they didnt know how to solve them. Didnt everyone think about this stuff? Not everything was bad though. Sasha was an amazing cook. Even when she didnt do anything to the food it was better than home.
  • Having gone the limit of her northerly patrol, the "Grigsby" had now headed about, dipping and lunging ahead of the wind and rolling as though the narrow craft would like nothing better than to turn turtle.
  • I'm a police officer! I can handle this. Please go about your business! said the blond man flashing his badge. But Kerr could see that he was getting worried. A human crowd appeared to develop a mind of its own. Not much of a mind as minds went, mind you. It was more like the mind of a homicidal maniac with a single-digit IQ than that of a rocket scientist, but definitely a mind. The blond cop seemed to know this about crowds better than Kerr himself. Kerr could see, even if the crowd couldn't, that the policeman was on edge. The ring of people around Kerr and the cop continued to get larger and they thronged even closer.
  • Garwood smiled cynically. "You needn't shoulder all the blame. I know her better than you do." He was rather surprised at the equanimity with which Kent accepted his dismissal. He had looked for a stormy interview with a disappointed, unreasonable youth who would protest and indulge in heroics. He felt quite kindly toward this young man, whose business, nevertheless, he intended to smash. Inwardly he made a note to offer him some sort of a job when that was accomplished. "I take back what I said a moment ago. But you must understand that there can be nothing between you and my daughter."
  • Naturally feels a world better than before however can get a bit irritable, recovery better, coping mechanism improved.
  • These letters written home by a young aef combat officer perhaps express the feelings of the average american soldier better than most writings.
  • 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.
  • "The Proactive Burghmeisters of the Progressive Slant," she spat, "Are a bunch of silly old fools who think they know better than everyone else simply because no-one can make a square waffle of what it is theyre going on about. The so-called Considerate League are bureau-prats who refuse to understand that something can exist quite happily without paperwork to back it up. Hand them a stone, and theyll argue to the death that stones arent real because a clear definition of what constitutes a stone isnt available on dossier. And the only reason why so many people like the Highwicker Collectivists is because theyre all so insane, nobody thinks they can do any real harm!"
  • The on-lookers maintained an awkward silence. But Teleri wasnt easily intimidated. "Im asking you to reconsider your order," she said in a less offensive tone, her only concession to his anger. "Obviously you know better than I do our chances of being attacked but Im willing to take the risk. And while I found Dylan ab Owain a genial companion, I would like to speak to you regarding your plans for Rhuddlan and Lord William."
  • Meanwhile, Lord Julian, who knew the feminine part of humanity rather better than Captain Blood, was engaged in solving the curious problem that had so completely escaped the buccaneer. He was spurred to it, I suspect, by certain vague stirrings of jealousy. Miss Bishop's conduct in the perils through which they had come had brought him at last to perceive that a woman may lack the simpering graces of cultured femininity and yet because of that lack be the more admirable. He wondered what precisely might have been her earlier relations with Captain Blood, and was conscious of a certain uneasiness which urged him now to probe the matter.
  • Pulling himself out of bed Connor still felt weak, but much better than yesterday. He walked to the closet and put on a brown sleeved shirt. He then felt very hungry. Walking into the kitchen he ate four bowls of cereal and five bananas. Feeling full he eventually meandered into the bedroom, opened up Sarahs boxes and his cases and put clothes in the dressers and closet. He decided to leave the delicates box closed and sealed for his own safety.
  • Swaying unsteadily, forced to look up at him even when standing, she said softly, "You have killed him, have you? Well, then it is time I told you a secret. You may have tricked him into an ambush, but you could never beat him in a fair fight. He is better than you. And do you know why?" Hoarsely she whispered the words: "Because he is your brother!"
  • I was really a fine swimmer, better than Jim, though not so daring. This was a dangerous proposition. Jim went first, going up stream a ways, then he sprang out into the river.
  • Jimmy did not finish, but shook his head from side to side, so that first one black ear went into the puddle of water on the deck, then the other, while his lips parted in a tremendously long grin, which seemed to say, "Black fellow knows better than to do such a stupid thing as that."
  • Poor Crusoe was singed almost naked. His wretched tail seemed little better than a piece of wire filed off to a point, and he vented his misery in piteous squeaks as the sympathetic Varley confided him tenderly to the care of his mother. How Fan managed to cure him no one can tell, but cure him she did, for, in the course of a few weeks, Crusoe was as well, and sleek, and fat as ever.
  • It had come to his knowledge, he said, that a foolish and wicked rumour had been circulated at the time of Boxer's removal. Some of the animals had noticed that the van which took Boxer away was marked "Horse Slaughterer," and had actually jumped to the conclusion that Boxer was being sent to the knacker's. It was almost unbelievable, said Squealer, that any animal could be so stupid. Surely, he cried indignantly, whisking his tail and skipping from side to side, surely they knew their beloved Leader, Comrade Napoleon, better than that? But the explanation was really very simple. The van had previously been the property of the knacker, and had been bought by the veterinary surgeon, who had not yet painted the old name out. That was how the mistake had arisen.
  • "Jack," Asta muttered behind him. "Dont do this. Youre better than this. Youre not just a man born of magicks. Youre an individualthe man I love."
  • This gives me 3o or more double-page spreads, some of which work better than others.
  • And you must also remember, Roger, Oswald said with a smile, "that if it had not been that you read and wrote, better than most of the other monks, the abbot would not have picked you out as my instructor, I should not have asked for you to come with me to Scotland, and Sir Henry Percy would never have begged the abbot to allow you to go forth into the world."
  • "I cannot believe it is snowing again," Turk grumbled.Urvo said nothing. He knew better than to speak to Turk in the early morning.
  • The irresistible artillery with which modern science had armed the warships of all nations had made these feats impossible, and so had placed the valour which achieved them out of court. Within the last few weeks scarcely a day had passed but had witnessed the return of some mighty ironclad or splendid cruiser, which had set out a miracle of offensive and defensive strength, little better than a floating ruin, wrecked and shattered almost beyond recognition by the awful battle-storm through which she had passed.
  • The steamer remained a couple of hours at the station, as did the Ophir; and the commander obtained permission for the ladies to pay her a visit. She is a magnificent specimen of naval architecture. Her saloon, staterooms, drawing-room on the upper deck, were magnificent apartments, most luxuriously furnished. Her appointments for second-class passengers were extensive and very comfortable, far better than on many Atlantic steamers.
  • "Come now, none of that, Jerry," said Mungo. "Fishmael may be happy to pull out that cutlass o' his and carve up every poor young hopeful, but we're better than that. Here, there's some sepia at the back of the draw somewhere... here." Mungo pulled out a bottle of thick, black-red ink.
  • The following day was devoted by Leslie to the task of procuring a suitable spar to serve as a new mast for the catamaran, and restoring that craft to her former serviceable condition. And it was while he was thus engaged that the thought first entered his mind that the accident by which the catamaran had become dismasted might possibly have been a blessing in disguise, since, but for that accident, the two savages might, by a not intricate process of reasoning, have arrived at the conclusion that such a craft would serve their purpose infinitely better than their own canoe, and forthwith appropriated her. That they did not do so was perhaps due to the fact that she was practically unmanageable except under sail, rather than to any innate sentiment of honesty on their part.
  • Well, said the captain; "it will act as a warning. Bought wit is better than taught wit. No more black fellows anywhere near our camp. It is my own fault. I was warned about them. They have none of the instincts of a civilised man, and will kill or steal, or be guilty of any crime. So understand here, boys, don't make friends with any more."
  • I do not say that you are not right, the sheik said gravely. "You understand the mode of warfare of these Franks much better than I do, and have been right in all your predictions of what would happen; but whatever may be the danger, it is clear to me that it must be faced. Brave men do not shrink from encountering death, and how can a follower of the Prophet shrink from death in battle with infidels. Numbers of my countrymen will assuredly take part in the struggle, and did I ride away without sharing in the conflict, I should not be able to lift up my head again. It may be that it is fated that I shall not return; so be it; if it is the will of Allah that I should die now, who am I to oppose it?
  • They will give us plenty of work for our teeth, Luka, Godfrey said. "They look almost like shoe-leather, but perhaps they will be better than they look. I once tasted some smoked reindeer tongues--at least they called them reindeer tongues, but I do not suppose they were--and they were first-rate. Now there is nothing more to do; let us get ready for another start."
  • She had given her niece an elaborate education, believing that a girl's mental training should be as severe as a boy's, and Viola knew her Greek and Latin and mathematics better than I knew mine, though all these had lately given way to the study of music, for which she had a great and peculiar gift.
  • But no, he wasnt giving vent to righteous disapproval at all. Carla knew him better than that. Gwynne simply meant what he saidhe wasnt going to look after it.
  • This was a severe mortification. Among his mistakes, that of believing himself an accomplished orator was not the least conspicuous. Unable any longer to support their silence, he quoted his speech himself: though, with that candor which was continually at the tip of his tongue, he acknowledged it was possible perhaps for him to have delivered his sentiments in a more terse and pointed manner. 'But no man', said he, addressing himself to Mr. *** 'no man knows better than you, how arduous a task it is to speak with eloquence.'
  • Still, in spite of her sharp tongue and her fondness for teasing him, Walt liked Dolly better than any of the girls from the city who were staying on the farm, and he was always glad to welcome her when she appeared where he was working, even though she interrupted his work, and made it necessary for him to stick to his job after the others were through in order to make up for lost time. But Dolly had little use for him, in spite of his obvious devotion, which all the other girls had noticed. And this time his silence didn't save him from another sharp thrust.
  • Just what I had in mind myself, and I think you knew it, Frank said, as he led the way outside. "Then we might sail around over the woods up in that region where we discovered those two hiding jewelry thieves, who were making headquarters of that old shack in the forest. If this biplane can climb any better than our little Bug used to do, she'll be a wonder, all right. Come on, and help us get things moving, fellows."
  • This was sufficient for the corporal's recruit, and he set about making himself comfortable, with the conviction that none knew better than his comrade the general condition of affairs.
  • "Sir, if you are referring to this moat of gore . . . those men were not Eritrean soldiers. They were Kenyan nationals, hired to precede our forces as scouts against possible ambush. Their behavior in no manner represents the official policies of Eritrea, regardless of what you may have heard. If they were prey to a savage call outside our purview . . . well, it would appear they were unequal to that call. At any rate, they were little better than animals, and blasphemous ones at that. You have done both the Eritrean Army and the vultures a great favor."
  • Thus he was functioning no better than at the age at which he developed lead encephalopathy.
  • "Hes a human, goddamit," Favored said sulkily. "You know better than to expect me to roll out manners for a hulk like him."
  • You lose this time, Bud, he said, "because I'm siding with Ralph here. If we were really hungry and in need of food, of course I'd say we had a right to get fresh meat; but we're on our way home now, and seems to me it would be a shame to spoil all our splendid sport by being cruel to a poor old bear that doesn't know any better than to gobble flour and anything else he finds lying around loose."
  • So the boat must be rocked. The match must be lit. He'd seen it, he'd known it, and he'd done it. He didn't have any idea what would happen, only that something might, which was infinitely better than the nothing he was already sure of. The way that the test had begun was like filling a pot with water and putting it on a stove. Fine, if what you wanted was a pot full of water, useless if you wanted hot tea. Well, now it was done and there was no use in crying about it. Chances were he'd be able to get another job in some other city someday! After all, he was still an experienced tester, and for some reason companies thought that they needed such persons. It was on the long checklist of things they felt they needed to have, like offices offshore and slogans.
  • Walking down the lane, I tried to decide whether or not I wanted Brandon to show up today. After my mixed signals yesterday I figured there was a better than even chance he'd 'forget' to come get me. Strangely enough that didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. It was like walking down the lane somehow put things back in perspective for me.
  • He paused, while Margaret and Peter stared at each other affrighted. Only Castell stood silent and unmoved, though he guessed what must follow better than either of them.
  • We have done well, though, he argued. "We've done better than well. Who would have believed that a blind man and a crippled woman could have come as far as this?"
  • 'Craig will know better than any of us what is right to do, and he will do that, and no man can turn him from it; and,' he added, 'I should be sorry to try.'
  • Lazerek reigned in his mount and motioned for the leader of his men, Brock, to come.Brock was a big man; he was well muscled and taut. He looked ready to pounce at any time. His head and body were covered by a dull armor, black as night.Gidas was certain they would be hot in those. He had found out these men were not just good warriors; they were Sicari.Sicari were better than the best graduates from Cznia Mizrak. They were the elite students who trained further into their martial art, almost to a spiritual level.Gidas scoffed at that.As if a person could reach spiritual enlightenment by sweating and beating a post.Ridiculous.The Sicari were supposedly trained directly by Jahvel who was, without question, the most physically combat-adept man in all the land. Jahvel had not given these men to Lazerek. The mage had paid for them on the open market. Jahvel and Lazerek were loose partners, and Gidas wondered how Jahvel would take it knowing Lazerek had chosen to purchase his own company of men instead of using one supplied by his partner.
  • I pointed out the mistake to my men, but it was no use arguing, and they refused to follow my advice. Like all ignorant people, they thought they knew everything better than anybody else, and as, in a way, they were the chief sufferers for their own conceit, I thought I would avoid unpleasantness and let them do things their own way as long as we kept going forward on our journey.
  • Sometimes the decks and upper works leaked, and the water coming in wetted the clothes and bedding. However, in other respects they were better than the forepeak in a flush-decked ship, which is generally close and hot, full of horrible odours, and totally destitute of ventilation, and often wet into the bargain, from unseen leaks which are not of sufficient consequence to trouble the officers, as they do not affect the safety of the ship.
  • "Sorry," you say, taking the stairs two at a time, afraid he'll recognize what you are. Or maybe you're just afraid because he's big. It's stupid to be afraid when you have the blood, but he has it, too. He's older. He grew up knowing what he is. He must understand his power better than you understand yours. Even if he doesn't, even if he was just a big human kid, what could you do if he got mad at you? You can't kill him and heal him to teach him to fear you. Power you can't show is worse than no power at all.
  • The irony of the short scene between Edward and Eadie, over Lady Katherines wedding, was that Edward was losing her, not because of Lady Margaret but because Eadie herself understood this no better than Angharad.
  • "A secret organization I used to belong to. They kicked me out, though you're never completely out once you're in. Anyway, their excuse was that my behavior was becoming too erratic, which is a hoot since they know better than anyone that it's all part of the Plan. Some Plan, that Plan."
  • "Russell—" she smiled, and reached out to put a small hand on his knee. He didnt feel it. "You are the only person who has reason enough to risk entering Leetons city and his very palace. Currun has the training, but you are the only one who needs to free me. I believe that you will do whatever you can, which is better than the half-efforts of a stronger man. Currun alone wouldnt do it, and you alone couldnt do it. That is why I need the two of you. It is up to you to ensure that Currun will help you."
  • Mowbray and Sainton were left gazing blankly at each other, but an official, knowing better than they the domestic trouble which was brewing in the royal household, advised them to repack their goods, as, in his opinion, the bazaar projected for the morrow would certainly be abandoned.
  • For now to his old religion Thorpe had added a fanaticism, and over the fanaticism was gradually creeping a film of doubt. To the conscientious energy which a sense of duty supplied, was added the tremendous kinetic force of a love turned into other channels. And in the wild nights while the other men slept, Thorpe's half-crazed brain was revolving over and over again the words of the sentence he had heard from Hilda's lips: "There can be nothing better than love."
  • Both the king and queen gasped. This news was far better than any could have guessed or hoped for. One of the Nohrin was a fire thrower! What better protection could they ask for?
  • No changes are in order for the GuppaZ155 portfolio, either. This poster wrote, "What I have found over the last five years since I started rebalancing is that each year, I seem to require less and less tweaking. When it comes to things like fiscal cliffs, ever-weakening dollars, budget stupidity, bond dangers from impending inflation, and the like, I realize I have no control over these. I just hope that my current portfolio will withstand another 2008 market crash better than it did then, but I guess I will just ride things out and hope for the best."
  • Like its master, this dog was a curious creature. It was little and thin, and without form of any distinct or positive kind. If we could suppose that this dog had been permitted to make itself, and that it had begun with the Skye-terrier, suddenly changed its mind and attempted to come the poodle, then midway in this effort had got itself very much dishevelled, and become so entangled that it was too late to do anything better than finish off with a wild attempt at a long-eared spaniel, one could understand how such a creature as "Titian" had come into existence.
  • Greg Holmes is a pretty handy man on the football field, retorted Darrin warmly. "None ought to know that better than we, after we've seen Holmes pull out so many victories for the old High School team. Of course, Prescott is the better player, but Holmes can back him up to amazing advantage."
