  • They covered several miles of the road. The thunder of the guns grew louder all the while, and Rod fully expected to come upon marching regiments at any time, although the thoroughfare they were following seemed to be singularly free from troops heading toward the scene of the battle.
  • J. P.'s theory of editorial writing, which I heard him propound a dozen times, called for three cardinal qualities--brevity, directness and style--and, as these could not be expected to adorn hasty writing, he employed a large staff of editorial writers and tried to limit each man to an average of half a column a day, unless exceptional circumstances called for a lengthy treatment of some important question.
  • None of us ever expected to get out alive, says Private Harrington. "We all determined to die hard and make the best fight possible."
  • The early part of her journey had been accomplished quite easily. There had been no rains in the East, such as were deluging the whole Ohio valley. If there had been, it is not likely the soldier's wife would have undertaken to travel at that time, and expose her precious baby to such terrible risks, even to carry out the surprise she anticipated so joyfully. From her aunt's house, in New York city, she had travelled by steamer up the Hudson to Albany. From there she took cars to Buffalo, and a lake boat to Cleveland. Now she was travelling by rail again, across the flooded state of Ohio towards Cincinnati. There she intended taking a steamboat down the Ohio River, and up the Mississippi to St. Louis, where she expected to join her husband's friends, on the boat that would carry them all to their journey's end.
  • As Robin trotted ahead of her off into the darkness, a blue glow spread out ahead of him, lighting his way through the crates and leaning piles of scrolls and books. Leen scowled to herself. She must be getting prematurely dotty, on top of blind, or perhaps it was mere engrossment in the book, although that was an excuse with more charity than Leen was usually willing to allow herself. Nevertheless, absentmindedness was the least dangerous explanation she could claim. Puttering about in the dust while mumbling non sequiturs was professionally expected of an archivist, but when you stopped backing it up with a lucid mind it meant trouble. One day youre forgetting the trick tunic you yourself had given the boy with the very goal of making it safer for him to prowl through your domain, as she had done at his age when it was her grandfather at the great desk, and soon youve advanced to fuddling the sequence for disarming the door wards, with the immediate sequelae of an expanding cloud of archivist-shaped vapor and, of course, the election of a new archivist.
  • Rob and his comrades had read more or less about these monster airships which the German Count had invented, and which were expected to play a prominent part in this world war. They had even hoped that before they left Belgium they might be given an opportunity to see one of the fleet monsters, which were said to be able to carry dozens of men, as well as tons of explosives, incredible distances.
  • Max did not fancy the manner of the two men. It smacked of a demand rather than a request for assistance; as though they would not take no for an answer, but might be expected to make trouble if refused.
  • Why, Paul, I exclaimed, after listening with astonishment to what he had said, "I little expected to hear such things come out of a--" (I was going to say negro's mouth, but changed it to) "African sailor's mouth. You ought to be a missionary."
  • That day the young hunters, leaving Swartboy and the Kaffir in charge of the camp, made a visit to the lagoon, where they expected to find hippopotami.
  • Vain all! Brute strength, represented by superior numbers, triumphed over warlike prowess, backed by indomitable courage; and the "Mier Expedition," from which Texas had expected so much, ended disastrously, though ingloriously; those who survived being made prisoners, and carried off to the capital of Mexico.
  • As if to confirm them in this belief, just then three large crocodiles were seen swimming around the rock, lingering there, as though they expected ere long to get their sharp teeth into the flesh of those who stood upon it.
  • Jack, unusually impressed, whispered to me that Edmund must have been playing us some Hindoo bedevilment trick, for he could not believe that we were actually in a foreign world. The same impression came over me. This was too earthlike; too much as if, instead of being on the planet Venus, we had been transported to some land of antique civilization in our own world. But, after all, we knew where we were, and as the realization of that fact came to us we could only stare with increasing astonishment at the scene before us. I may say here that Edmund subsequently visited this great library, and also some of the schools, and I know that he made notes of what he discovered and learned in them, with the purpose, as I supposed, of writing upon the subject after his return. But the expected book, which would have supplemented and clarified much of what I have undertaken to tell, with but a half understanding of what we saw, never appeared.
  • 'My brother, however, who was truly affectionate, and active in efforts to protect us, afforded my mother some aid. From being a chorister, he had gained admission into the grammar-school; of which, while he remained there, he was the pride and boast. Immediately after our father's death, from the recommendation of his own merit and the misfortunes of the family, he was appointed a Latin usher in the same school; in which station he remained five years. The difference of our age made him consider himself something rather like a father than a brother to me: he loved me tenderly, took every method to improve and provide for me, and expected in return something like parental obedience. The manners of my mother were of the mild and pleasing kind, with which qualities she endeavoured to familiarize me, and the behaviour of the whole family gained general approbation and esteem.
  • This was absolutely true. But though I looked for him on each succeeding day he was nowhere to be seen at the usual times. The companions of my idle hours (and all my hours were idle just then) noticed my preoccupation and chaffed me about it in a rather obvious way. They wanted to know whether she, whom I expected to see, was dark or fair; whether that fascination which kept me on tenterhooks of expectation was one of my aristocrats or one of my marine beauties: for they knew I had a footing in both these-- shall we say circles? As to themselves they were the bohemian circle, not very wide--half a dozen of us led by a sculptor whom we called Prax for short. My own nick-name was "Young Ulysses."
  • Once everyone was finished, the servants cleared their plates and brought out an assortment of desserts; like the main courses, these were familiar foods like German chocolate cake, cheesecake, strawberries and sugar, and even ice cream. Trevor thought the elves might tear through these desserts just as they did their food, but instead they simply stared at their wine glassesfor you see, elves are quite fond of wine and expected a few glasses of wine after dinner.
  • And so it was arranged. The boys hunted a bit more, but somehow the strange signals and the peculiar behavior of Barton had got on their minds, and they gave up their sport earlier than they had expected and trudged back to camp to complete their arrangements for the night's work.
  • The first man broke at just after midnight--the witching hour. He caved just about the same time the unholy shrieking stopped. I guess the creepy crawlies must have had a previous engagement. The poor SOB never really had a chance. Leanne handled the interrogation. We questioned our prisoners in the same room where theyd been taken, their comradesblood still spattered in fresh puddles on the floor. I half have expected her to torture them, but it wasnt necessary.
  • "Nothing." Jack snapped. He turned around and sunk the needle tip into the toilet bowl. With a craftsman's care, he drew water from the bowl. He agigtated the syringe, turned it needle up and pushed out the air bubbles. He found a vessel erect in his forearm and plunged the hypodermic into his arm. Eric watched in mute shock. For all the drugs he had done he had never seen anyone shoot up. Jack injected the heroin then pulled out the plunger. Blood was drawn into the syringe. Then, the tranlucent red elixir went into his bloodstream. Eric expected an instant reaction, but it took near eternal moments for Jack to calm down. He gained a deathlike composure: peace unbound.
  • Another given, given that Porky is one of the most prodigiously phlegmatic people I've ever met is that he began the endless cycle of mucous sucking and swallowing, followed by throat clearing and grunting that is his expression of self-sufficiency. I have a brass spittoon, though it's no longer expected to function as such, that saw its first usage in sixty years when Porky started coming over to do work at the house. He didn't use it often, since he's such a firm believer, as far as mucous goes anyway, in recycling, but it's nice to know that the spittoon still works, just in case.
  • Maybe so. All I did was to hold the horses, but I'll be glad of any credit that comes to me. I expected we'd hear from the school before now.
  • Starting on the left; first was a woman, tall, thin, and angular. I half expected her collarbone to poke a hole in her gauzy blouse. Her hair was black, very curly, and fell below her shoulders and past the edge of the table. Her eyes were a deep green, slanted and large. All of this should have made her beautiful, and she might have been, except for the look of pure hatred and disgust with which she met my gaze. Had I been a child molesting, cannibal, puppy-torturer I might have got a friendlier look.
  • And so they continued to walk along the road, chatting among themselves as cheerily as footsore and weary scouts might be expected to do when trying to encourage each other to further exertions.
  • Graice could not avoid looking down, of course. One watched carefully where one's feet stepped or else one burned one's shoes upon reaching home, preferably on the neighbor's side of the property line. As a further complication, this day she wore formal slippers on her small feet instead of the sturdy shoes she would have chosen had she anticipated taking this short cut. Her last assignment had taken longer than expected and twilight was upon her, however, and she had urgent business to discuss with Madrre Sybille back at the Sistrian Way-House. All the streets in this area were poorly lit after dark, and despite Drunken Scum Street's utter lack of charm, it was still the shortest route.
  • The Indians, instead of binding Mike, as I expected they would do, allowed him to come and sit by me under the tree; narrowly watching him, however, though they did not interfere with us.
  • Oh, but I cannot die! he murmured. "I have made well-nigh five hundred pounds, and expected to double it in this cruise, and I cannot leave all that wealth. I want to go home, to live at my ease and enjoy it."
  • Don had not expected anything like this. He didn't want the patrol to be cocksure--he wanted it to work. But there would be small chance of work if each scout was going to think that practice was unnecessary.
  • Not until then did Bumpus seem to heave a sigh of relief. Evidently the poor fellow had really expected to see some dreadful enemy clasp Bob around the neck as he started to slip over the side of the boat.
  • "Well, the crowd yelled "surprise" tonight and continued to make a huge racket. It was shocking to us because we didnt plan on that as a contingency. The rules were very specific and we expected the crowd to react differently. So Tray and I just thought maybe youd have some idea about who might have been behind it…" Willow requested and waited quietly for my reply.
  • IT was not to be expected that Captain Barton's changed and eccentric habits should long escape remark and discussion. Various were the theories suggested to account for it. Some attributed the alteration to the pressure of secret pecuniary embarrassments; others to a repugnance to fulfil an engagement into which he was presumed to have too precipitately entered; and others, again, to the supposed incipiency of mental disease, which latter, indeed, was the most plausible, as well as the most generally received, of the hypotheses circulated in the gossip of the day.
  • Caislyn, having dealt with Ve before had expected some sort of shocking comment from him. She clasped her hand over Jaxon's and smiled reassuringly at her before she turned to address Ve. "Now, is that anyway to treat guests, Ve?" Caislyn feigned indifference before she began talking again. "We came to beg favors from you and you call my friend a whore?" She prepared to stand and continued on, "maybe you were the wrong demon to come see, after all." She tsked under her breath and waited for Ve to take the bait.
  • The last news of the tremendous tragedy reached the now panic-stricken capital half an hour before the receipt of similar tidings from Harwich, announcing the destruction of the defending fleet and forts, and the capture of the town by exactly the same means as those employed against Dover. Nothing now lay between London and the invading forces but the utterly inadequate army and the lines of fortifications, which could not be expected to offer any more effective resistance to the assault of the war-balloons than had those of the three towns on the Kentish coast.
  • The Spanish Flu Epidemic of 1918, nicknamed The Plague of the Spanish Lady (the Influenza Pandemic), killed between 22-25 million people worldwide. Eight years before the epidemic, back in 1910, pneumonia and influenza raked first as a leading cause of death in Utah at 10.7%, followed by injuries- 8.5%, heart disease- 7.4%, acute Nephritis and Brights Disease (diseases of the kidneys)- 5.9%, diarrhea and enteritis (diseases of the intestines)- 5.2%. Normally, between 1910-1920, a woman would be expected to live 51.8 years. Jennie lived to be only 39 years old.
  • Cain stops halfway down the stairs. Alastor again has a bout with the non-existence, but he somehow expected it, forcing his mind through it.
  • backwardation is a trading term used to refer to a situation where the price of a future for a specific asset is lower than the expected spot price at the time of expiration of the future. For example, if it is currently March 2012 and the price of a Dec12 oil future is $120 whereas the expected spot price for Dec12 is $125, there is backwardation.
  • But the lenders were nevertheless expected to participate because they depend on the bailout funds that Athens stands to receive if its bailout continues smoothly.
  • This happened soon after the return journey up the Huallaga had begun. Smyth had expected such an occurrence for some time, for he had more than once been forced to remonstrate with his men for their quarrelsome or jeering attitude towards Indians whom they met and talked with, and who would have been perfectly willing to be friendly and obliging. They came up with a large canoe containing eight Indians who were lying in wait for a manatee. Smyth bade the Jeveros draw up, and entered into conversation with the hunters, who answered civilly, though not without some distrust. Luis and Filipe joined in unasked, and, when it was too late, the lieutenant perceived that they were "chaffing" the strangers. These became more and more angry, and at last refused to answer Smyth, who thereupon, for peace' sake, told his canoemen to paddle on. They obeyed, but not without a parting jeer which the Englishmen did not understand, but which so incensed the Indian in the bows of the other canoe that he hurled the harpoon which he was holding straight at Luis.
  • "No, Bert, dear; indeed, I would not, although you should lose a dozen prizes. I said that simply to see what you would think of it, and I am glad you answered me as I expected you would. But, Bert, you have asked my advice in this matter. Did you think of asking somebody else who is infinitely wiser than I am?"
  • The wind was coming in great gusts across our front, and the corner where the bear was feeding offered a dangerous place for eddies and back-currents against the mountain side. In order to avoid these, we kept just inside the woods. Nikolai going first showed the greatest skill in knowing just how close to the wind we could go. We quickly reached the place where we expected to sight the bear, but he was hidden in the bed of the river, and it was some minutes before we could make out the top of his head moving above the grass. Then noiselessly we crawled up as the bear again fed slowly into view. He was now about 125 yards away, and offered an excellent shot as he paused and raised his head to scent the breeze; but Nikolai whispered, "No," and we worked nearer, crawling forward when the bear's head was down, and lying flat and close when his head was up.
  • They saw that he was following a trail, for he continually looked down at the ground in front of him, and then glanced to the right and left, occasionally inclining his head, as though he was listening for something which he expected to hear. He appeared to be altogether unconscious of the fact that he had companions at all and they sought to imitate his stealthy, cat-like movement, without venturing to speak. After traveling the distance mentioned, and while they were moving along in the same cautious way, the scout suddenly wheeled on his knee, and faced them.
  • Until now we have only known Mildred Travers, as she called herself, in a casual way. We know that she was considered a competent nurse and had proved her capability in the care of baby Jane. Also we know that she was silent and reserved and that her eyes bore an habitual expression that was hard and repellent. Without being able to find any especial fault with the girl, no one was attracted toward her--always excepting the baby, who could not be expected to show discrimination at her tender age.
  • He expected no answer, and whistled as he lighted a pile of birchbark which he had already placed under dry cedar wood which McKay had gathered the preceding evening.
  • "Of course you must attend every class," Dr. Terrill says. "And it goes without saying that youll turn in every assignment on time. Class schedules may be convenient or inconvenient, it doesnt matter. Youre expected to come to class prepared, contribute thoughtfully, and enjoy doing it."
  • The prisoners looked at Bob as if they expected him to deny the accusation; but, to the disappointment of some of them who really liked him, he had nothing to say.
  • I do not now recall the sort of walls that were pictured in my mind or know what I really expected to see enclosing Darlinkel's Park, but I do know that when I suddenly emerged from the dark forests into the sunlit prairie, the scene which greeted my vision was not the one painted by my imagination.
  • Bumpus cast a quick, apprehensive glance toward his companion. His one prevailing idea just then was that they ought to get up, and skip out as lively as they could, leaving their nice fire for the two rough woodmen to enjoy. As far as he could see, neither of the men seemed to possess any firearm; at least they certainly did not carry guns, as might be expected.
  • It was not his most pressing concern at the moment, in any case; that honour was reserved for the emberquick, and more precisely, what it was that it was leading him to. And there was no doubt about it now, either; in one particular house in one particular street (for the emberquick refused to sing tunefully if focussed anywhere else) there lay the reason for this mysterious connection between the crystal and his first great dream. What he expected to find there, he didnt know - and neither did Lilac. "Puzzles fall here like rain does in London," she had said, by way of comment. "And given the choice, Id take the puzzles; more tolerable, more refreshing, even if they should be a bit more prone to leave you scratching your head."
  • When they came up to his room she stood for a moment looking round the place. It was hardly what she had expected to find. And she had not been in town lodgings before, and her nose wrinkled up a little as she smelt the close air. It seemed so stuffy, and so dark.
  • When Captain Horn heard of the passage into the rock, he was much more interested than Ralph had expected him to be, and, without loss of time, he lighted a lantern and, with the boy behind him, set out to investigate it. But before entering the cleft, the captain stationed Maka at a place where he could view all the approaches to the plateau, and told him if he saw any snakes or other dangerous things approaching, to run to the opening and call him. Now, snakes were among the few things that Maka was not afraid of, and so long as he thought these were the enemies to be watched, he would make a most efficient sentinel.
  • He had arranged for Andrew to be brought to the barracks so that the Emperor could speak with him if he desired. He was taken to one of the nicer rooms and given food and wine, and told that anything he needed would be brought to him if he asked. It seemed he was a kind man, but a frightened one. Tannis didn't think it was because he had malicious intentions and was nervous, but rather that he saw the Medoran army stir like a giant hornets nest shortly after his arrival. Nervousness was to be expected.
  • Reasonable!"" repeated Sengoun appealingly to the people around them. ""Permit me to ask these unusually intelligent gentlemen whether it is reasonable to play roulette in a place where the wheel is notoriously controlled and the management a dishonest one! Could a gentleman be expected to frequent or even to countenance places of evil repute? Messieurs, I await your verdict!"" And he folded his arms dramatically."
  • I'm freaked by how cold and businesslike she is. But the ghost's not thrown; he's ready, as if really he expected it. He takes a breath and says, "The police were certain your husband had a history with the family. Is there anything more you can tell me?"
  • One of the boys who expected to join the second patrol in the early fall, Steve Slimmons, would be on the lookout for this signal that would announce the coming of the weary column; and when he caught sight of the smoke waves it would be his duty to announce that, after all, the scouts had not fallen down in their brave attempt to win that glorious trophy; but were coming right along, and hoped to be on hand in due time.
  • Eddy was surprised by the venom uttered by the dishevelled figure that was staring into the corner of the bar. He turned to follow the man's gaze and saw a bearded face beaming at him from the TV that was to be found in that direction. In the bottom left-hand corner of the screen was a name that answered all of his questions. That was it. All of the talk on the TV, the radio and in every bar in the country for months had convinced him that they were everywhere. He just hadn't expected that he would be the first to be targeted by one. The name on the screen was Osama Bin Laden and Eddy's acquaintance in the St Kilda Kebab House had just announced that he was coming for him.
  • He could hear Elephant turning from side to side. Perhaps his arms pained him; and thinking thus Frank was sorry he had not insisted on swabbing them with some witch hazel which they kept handy in the shop, in case of bruises while working. But he did not think it good policy to disturb the entire bunch again in order to relieve the slight pain of Elephant who must sooner or later grow used to hard knocks, if he ever expected to face the world.
  • They were soon deep in the various interesting features of the programme as mapped out for the next day. Having now settled into what they expected would be the permanent camp of the tour, the boys were wild to get down to business, and show their efficiency in the various lines which they favored.
  • Midway of the tunnel, and at the right as one entered, was a door leading into the porter's office. This door was shut, but as Orme approached it, it noiselessly opened out. He expected to see a porter appear, and when no person stepped over the sill, he inferred that the door had been blown open by an interior draught.
  • As the story unfolded and Ashton appreciated the part Ford expected him to play in it, his emotions were so varied that he was in danger of apoplexy. Amusement, joy, chagrin, and indignation illuminated his countenance. His cigar ceased to burn, and with his eyes opened wide he regarded Ford in pitying wonder.
  • And that the young warrior might not err as to the one who was expected to impart light on the subject, Burt gave him a resounding whack on the shoulder that almost knocked him off the log. The youth was in the act of conveying some of the meat to his mouth when saluted in that fashion, and it came like the shock of an earthquake.
  • Six days! It was a long lead to overcome, and everything he dreaded might happen in that time. Still, he did not anticipate that the convoy would run into danger before it neared Detroit, which place it was not expected to reach in less than two weeks. If, therefore, he could overtake it within one week, or before it entered the Detroit river, all might yet be well. Having reached this conclusion, the young officer bustled about with such energy, that he had the satisfaction of getting his own party started from Fort Schlosser late that same afternoon, instead of waiting until the following morning, as had been at first planned.
  • The first aluminum ingots are expected to be produced in early 2001.
  • Loud and terrific was the cry of vengeance, followed by a rush of the pirates aft that was irresistible. The crew were cut down scarcely ere they had risen to their feet, and sabred with hellish ferocity wherever they could be grappled with. In a moment's space two thirds of the seamen, who had been seized with a sudden panic at the demoniac rush of the pirates, whom they expected to have seen discomfited by the wholesale slaughter of their comrades, fell a prey to their savage ferocity, and the decks were deluged with their blood. Many leaped overboard, and others sprang into the rigging to fall dead into the sea.
  • 5 October.--We all arose early, and I think that sleep did much for each and all of us. When we met at early breakfast there was more general cheerfulness than any of us had ever expected to experience again.
  • Yes. Two bike riders murdered in the car park right opposite the Police Station last night and a third in hospital in a coma and not expected to survive.’
  • Then preparations were made, looking to an all-night vigil, during which by turns one of their number was expected to stand guard at two hour stretches; though none of them had the least fear that the enemy, routed so thoroughly, would return.
  • By the time their carriages pulled up in the drive before the domed building at the other end of the boulevard, Sanych had learned a few Hyndi phrases, and repeated them, to the delight of her carriage-mates. One of them, Shashei Cheriya, nodded and looked as if shed expected nothing less.
  • It was in apple time that Cameron came back to the farm. Under compulsion of Mandy, Haley had found it necessary to drive into the city for some things for the "women folk" and, being in the city, he had called for Cameron and had brought him out. Under compulsion, not at all because Haley was indifferent to the prospect of a visit from his former hired man, not alone because the fall plowing was pressing and the threshing gang was in the neighbourhood, but chiefly because, through the channel of Dr. Martin, the little nurse, and Mandy, it had come to be known in the Haley household and in the country side that the hired man was a "great swell in the old country," and Haley's sturdy independence shrank from anything that savoured of "suckin' round a swell," as he graphically put it. But Mandy scouted this idea and waited for the coming of the expected guest with no embarrassment from the knowledge that he had been in the old country "a great swell."
  • These six men were expected to take both luncheon and dinner at the farm, but only the Hollanders turned up in the evening, perhaps because the excellence of the fare was outbalanced by the long prayers and hymns with which the meal was prefaced and ended. Even at lunch-time, there was a Bible at the host's elbow, from which he read a number of texts before pronouncing a long grace, while the visitors listened with expressions that varied from embarrassment to impatience. Richard Saltire always looked frankly bored, but sometimes he and Mrs. van Cannan exchanged a smile of sympathy at having to listen to the maledictions of Job while the roast was getting cold. Hymns for lunch were mercifully omitted. Bernard van Cannan, though plainly a religious fanatic, was also the owner of one of the wealthiest farms in the colony, and no doubt he realized that the working-hours of his employees might be more profitably engaged than by chanting hymns.
  • I--I---- began the shrinking Len, when the sound of another horseman approaching caused both lads to turn slightly in their saddles. Dave half expected to see Pocus Pete, but he beheld the not very edifying countenance of Whitey Wasson, a tow-headed cowpuncher belonging to the Centre O outfit. Whitey and Len were reported to be cronies, and companions in more than one not altogether pleasant incident.
  • When the sun was beginning to slip from the sky, she collected some of the fallen tree boughs and moved to the far side of a stand of stout old pines. Carefully she lit the fire where it would not cause the tree-borne snow to melt and rain down over her. She pulled open the pack of food, relieved to find salted meat rather than the coarse and heavy biscuit that, when soaked for a great deal of time in warm water, became the hideous porridge she had choked down the night before. After eating what she judged to be the day's ration, she marveled at the fact that a bedroll had been included with the other things in the pack. The attitude of those that had sent her off gave her the feeling she would be expected to do without.
  • A hasty examination of the deserted craft unfolded to the young jed the whole tragic story. The same tempest that had proved his undoing had borne Tara of Helium to this distant country. Here, doubtless, she had landed in hope of obtaining food and water since, without a propellor, she could not hope to reach her native city, or any other friendly port, other than by the merest caprice of Fate. The flier seemed intact except for the missing propellor and the fact that it had been carefully moored in the shelter of the clump of trees indicated that the girl had expected to return to it, while the dust and leaves upon its deck spoke of the long days, and even weeks, since she had landed. Mute yet eloquent proofs, these things, that Tara of Helium was a prisoner, and that she was the very prisoner whose bold dash for liberty he had so recently witnessed he now had not the slightest doubt.
  • Then why are you trying to? Betty naturally queried. Of course one never actually expected to understand Polly O'Neill's whims, but now and then one of them appeared a trifle more mysterious than the others. "If you are still tired and feel you prefer to remain in bed, that is a sure sign you are not strong enough to get up, and Dr. Barton and Sylvia ought to realize it," she continued, still on the defensive.
  • I dont know what I was going to do. Will thought to himself as he started his rounds. I never expected to be laid off from that high-tech job. The timing couldnthave been worse, with the new addition to the family and Jess being on maternity leave. Those bastards didnt even giving me a severance. If I had the money Id hire a lawyer and stick it to those corporate assholes. Siphoning millions of dollars from workers like me to pay for their movie star lifestyle. They should all be thrown in jail and left there to rot like the criminals they are.
  • The thirtyfifth mile was reached before those energetic Indians stopped, and de Bonelli wished he had with him some of the people who make the sweeping statement that "all Indians are lazy." He expected to see them bivouac for at least a couple of hours; instead of this, not one man sat down; all stood or lounged, as though they knew by instinct that the walker who allows his muscles to relax completely is doubling the strain of the after walk; and the standing only lasted long enough to enable them to eat their mealtwenty minutes at the outside. Then on again. Seventy miles did these indolent wretches walk between sunrise and sunset, only stopping for that one brief meal. It sounds incredible, but even greater distances are stated, on the best authority, to have been covered by members of this wonderful tribe.
  • Three tents and their leaders are responsible for the work at camp, and will be expected to report to the assistant superintendent after breakfast for assignment of work. These tents are changed each day, so that the boys and leaders come on duty only one day in seven.
  • It was far from acceptable for two people from opponents at combat to become companions. It was expected by all (or nearly so) that when a Hamlet Person met one of The People from Abroad, they would engage in combat and seek to destroy the life of the other until fruition of one; and that, without regard to their age or their gender.
  • These islanders were industrious in their own way. They built comfortable houses, and made excellent pottery capable of withstanding the heat of fire when used for cooking. Their boat-builders constructed sea-going canoes capable of travelling long distances. They also made a delicate cloth from the bark of the mulberry tree, upon which they printed from wooden blocks patterns of great elegance. Their spears and clubs also showed much taste in their construction and ornamentation. The women made fishing nets of coconut fibre, with which they captured an abundance of fish. The tribes on the different islands kept up a system of barter with one another, exchanging commodities, the making of which was their hereditary occupation. A son followed the occupation of his father, and for him to have followed any other occupation would have been regarded as an offence against ancestors. A son was expected to do exactly as his father did before him, and to do it in the same way.
  • Gaming machines are expected to figure strongly in the current year.
  • "Well, I never expected to have kids, yet I cannot deny my wife children. Im shocked shes stayed faithful after all this time. Ive told her to find someone discreet. She is, after all, French. She has been wonderful to me, and I would do anything to make her happy."
  • Taking out his watch, he calculated that anybody who left the station on foot when the train arrived might be expected to reach the Garth in the next quarter of an hour. This was disturbing, but he saw nothing to cause him alarm as he went on. Now and then a rabbit, startled by his footsteps, ran across the road, and once or twice an owl hooted as it fluttered overhead.
