  • AFTER dinner all the gang turned out to hunt for turtle eggs on the bar. They went about poking sticks into the sand, and when they found a soft place they went down on their knees and dug with their hands. sometimes they would take fifty or sixty eggs out of one hole. They were perfectly round white things a trifle smaller than an English walnut. They had a famous fried-egg feast that night, and another on Friday morning.
  • This sometimes seems to have been lost on certain self-appointed guardians of evangelical morality.
  • The storm whipped at me, buffeted me, stung my face and hands, and tried to pry me from the rope. Lightning struck the city around me, sometimes so close I could smell it. And the further I climbed, the steeper the angle grew. The rope began to sag as it soaked up the rainwater like a sponge. My abused hands ached fiercely. It was the hardest seventy feet I've ever traveled. Every second of it I expected that unearthly shriek to turn my bones to pudding and stop my heart.
  • Roland worked as hard as he could under Guacelm, but he never admitted, even to his teacher, that sometimes, alone in the hills, singing to rocks and trees, he dreamed of being a troubadour. He saw himself commanding words and verses as kings commanded their barons, holding seigneurs and their ladies fascinated by the power of his voice, drawing intricate music from lute and lyre and gittern by the skill in his fingers. sometimes he forgot he was the son of a hunted outlaw and imagined himself welcomed and honored everywhere.
  • One trench over, there came the dread zizz sound of a trenchbuster and she threw herself down. There were anti-busters in the trenches, too, but they didn't always work. The trench-busters were mostly up around the front, but they sometimes came back to the diggers, and they had killed one crew she knew of.
  • Charnyetski was chewing his anger. "With such troops one can never be sure of to-morrow," said he to the king. "Sometimes they fight badly, sometimes heroically, all from impulse; and at any outbreak rebellion is ready."
  • Professor Henderson realized this and knew that the chief concern would be to discover a gas or vapor with five times the lifting power of hydrogen, one of the lightest gases known, and one sometimes used to inflate balloons.
  • The Coven is a huge underground ship suspended by psychokinesis just below the surface of a section of the swamp that, legend says, reaches to the very core of the planet. The core heats the water and sometimes even the surface bubbles. That much Esmerelda knew. The heat was a ready source of power, that she was taught; and she herself had done several tours of suspension dutydreary, tiring work that requires both coordination and concentration. The shack is the Covens uppermost compartment, one of its few entrances and exits. On its own it doesnt look like much. But thats by design. Always there is a single witch on sentry duty inside. Esmerelda had done that duty, too. It was preferable to the other. She liked being alone. Now, she rapped her tired knuckles against the door of the shack and waited for a response and the comfort of friendly company.
  • Hendrika grunted assent. I am sorry that I cannot express her method of speech by any more polite term. sometimes she grunted like a monkey, sometimes she clicked like a Bushman, and sometimes she did both together, when she became quite unintelligible.
  • "Its a dump. A relic," said Poe. "The roof sags and the windows leak air. The attics full of mice and raccoons. They replace the shingles when they run out of buckets. The scouts use it on Wednesday evenings and theres sometimes a dance on Saturday nights in the summer." He glanced at the priest. "A couple of times theyve held tent revivals in it in the last few years. Mostly it just sits there."
  • After stoking the fire and changing his cap Joshua stood by the kitchen door. His wife was enormous, her belly hanging before her like a cow's udder. He gazed at her for some time as she folded the laundry. He wondered when his son would arrive. He had already warned Doc Manner to be prepared, as prepared as Joshua was: he had made a crib and a rocking horse, a rack to hold the boy's rifle and a box to hold the toys. Melissa had asked for the toy box. Joshua had resisted, his boy would not be playing much with toys, but Melissa had asked and asked and he had finally given in. She was sometimes very persistent. She had a way of repeating some wish so often that he just gave in, instead of listening to her nagging.
  • We all wished to be off as soon as possible, so while it was still dark we caught and watered our horses; and, having cast off their hobbles and loaded the pack animals, we were in the saddle by sunrise. We rode on for several hours, and then encamped for breakfast, allowing our horses to graze while we went on foot in search of game. We succeeded in killing a couple of deer and a turkey, so that we were again amply supplied with food. Our baggage-mules being slow but sure-going animals we were unable to make more than twenty miles a day, though at a pinch we could accomplish thirty. We had again mounted and were moving forward. The country was covered with tall grass, five and sometimes eight feet in height, over which we could scarcely look even when on horseback. We had ridden about a couple of miles from our last camping-place, when Story, the tallest of our party, exclaimed--
  • The wizened oldster looked like a raisin in rags, but his pride was intact. sometimes he used to clean toilets and sweep floors to earn a few bucks.
  • Pressure, he said. "You'll get used to it! Lord, sometimes I've felt as if my head would burst when I started to climb. But it doesn't last long. Feel in the seat there beside you, at your left. There ought to be a big electric torch."
  • Blow-drying for hair styling leads to hair loss as it scars the scalp, sometimes leading to permanent damage.
  • Nothing bonds two men better than laughing at others' misfortune. Well, it is not entirely true, but in Vannard's case any sort of bonding was a success. Unfortunately, that didn't amount to much, because lord Seagull didn't know much about the paladin. Like every good lord, he didn't really care what was happening in his lands, unless it was really important, and sometimes not even then. A wandering armoured madman certainly didn't register as something important, a passing curiosity at best. Therefore, the assassin decided to talk with some less important people who might have paid more attention. He was surprised to notice that his visit to the lord's castle had some interesting after-effects.
  • The singing continued, sometimes sinking to a low, droning sound, sometimes rising to a wild wail that sounded weirdly over the marshland.
  • Horatio steps forward. "What art thou, that usurpst this time of night, together with that fair and warlike form in which the majesty of buried Denmark did sometimes march?
  • They were quiet as Rose merged into a two-lane highway that would lead them straight to Sessay. The towns were of equal size, nearly fifty-thousand inhabitants, but Evanston was only that quantity in summer. Nine months of the year it mushroomed to nearly seventy-five thousand, the university where both sisters had graduated providing Evanston a different flavor than Sessay. The band sometimes traveled that hour to do a show in Judith Hoffman Robinsons hometown, but other than a trek once or twice a year, they never strayed far from their base, Evanston full of bars, clubs, and a few dives that The Pool Gurus had fronted at one time or another over the last eighteen years.
  • Schools often reflect and sometimes reinforce societal perceptions of young people who are viewed as different.
  • "Sure Rub, my folks made a big deal out of birthdays. sometimes I'd even get to invite my friends over and we'd have a big party. We didn't have hats or fancy plates with my name on 'em, but there was always a big cake. My mom made the cake fresh too, any kind I wanted. And there'd be presents for me; always wrapped in pretty paper. Mom got upset when I ripped the paper instead of taking it off at the tape so as not to tear it. But before I could open my gifts, everybody had to sing Happy Birthday first. I always thought listening to that song was the price I had to pay to get my hands on the presents."
  • "This world of ours is fraught with evil, Ambassador." Nadir Sharif shook his head in resignation. "I sometimes marvel any of us survive it." Then he looked back at Hawksworth and beamed. "But then Ive always found you to be a man blessed with rare
  • Is there? asked the boy quickly. "Man! That is fine! But I always knew he could not do anything really bad--I mean, anything that the police could touch him for. But it is not that, Dad. I have heard Jack say he used to be different when he came down first, and now sometimes he--" The lad's voice fell silent. He could not bring himself to accuse his hero of any evil. His father drew him close to his side.
  • To that, the Duchess had merely waved her hand. However, Kate could not explain how that had bothered her each month. She could not explain how she sometimes thought of carrying his child, and it had less to do with duty and more to knowing she would be growing a babe from the passion they shared.
  • "Yes," he would mutter, "I thought I heard your light foot upon the lobby, on that accursed night. Fancy! Well, it may have been, but assuredly a strange fancy. I cannot comprehend that woman. She baffles my scrutiny. I have looked into her face with an eye she might well understand, were it indeed as I sometimes suspect, and she has been calm and unmoved. I have watched and studied her; still--doubt, doubt, hideous doubt!--is she what she seems, or--a tigress?"
  • "My dreams are usually nightmares too, always of the plane crashes that I've had. It's such a helpless feeling, the ground getting closer and closer, everything speeding up, then bam! you hit and everything stops but only after what seems like an eternity of screaming metal and breaking glass, then the next thing you know you're standing around in the middle of the wreckage of what was your plane or someone is pulling you out of the debris trying to save you. Then somehow you're in a hospital bed surrounded by doctors and nurses and they're giving you pills, lots of pills, for the pain. That's what I dream of, usually. I relive those memories all the time. sometimes they don't seem real anymore and I wonder what is. You ever feel that way about your own past experiences?"
  • The tit-for-tat murders would sometimes wane through the centuries and things would go quiet. But once in a while someone would remember the memory of a murdered ancestor and go looking for a victim. Bankers murdered Scientists (strangled by bankruptcy leading to starvation), or Scientists murdered Bankers (Merry Christmas cigars made of plastic explosives).
  • The scrub was all alike; sometimes thinner, sometimes thicker. We marched by compass until we had raised a conical hill above the horizon, and then we bore just to the left of that. The surface of the ground was cut by thousands of game tracks. They were all very old, however, made after a rain; and it was evident the game herds venture into this country only when it contains rainwater. After two hours, however, we did see one solitary hartebeeste, whom we greeted as an old friend in desolation. Shortly afterwards we ran across one oribi, which I shot for our own table.
  • He was gone to his room, and I went to mine feeling duly snubbed; yet I deserved it; for I had exhibited a characteristic (though not chronic) want of taste, of which I am sometimes guilty to this day. Not to show ill-feeling on the head of it, I nevertheless followed him down again in four or five minutes. And I was rewarded by his brightest smile as he grasped my hand.
  • The Secretary saw the frown on Prescott's face and was pleased, though he spoke of him and his great services. "He has more than courage--he has sense allied with it. sometimes I think that courage is one of the commonest of qualities, but it is not often that it is supported by coolness, discrimination and the ability to endure. A fine young man, Robert Prescott, and one destined to high honours. If he survive the war, I should say that he will become the Governor of his State or rise high in Congress."
  • In america, however, the term was used for a variety show involving broad comedy and sometimes bawdy content, such as striptease.
  • 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.
  • Drat stepped through the gateway. Once through I could just make out the silhouette of his form. Alex went next, then Josh. Leanne and I stepped through together. She still leaned on me for support. One by one those of our men that had managed to fight their way through appeared--sometimes singly, sometimes three or four at a time.
  • The shore continued very flat, and once or twice they saw sand-banks stretching out a considerable distance. sometimes both paddled, sometimes Godfrey steered only and Luka laid in his paddle. Three times in the course of the day the big canoe was pulled up, and Luka went on board and cooked a meal, the flat slab on which they lit their fire having been raised three or four inches above the bottom to keep it out of the water. Hitherto Godfrey had done all the steering when the boat was under sail, but he now instructed Luka. Little teaching was, indeed, needed, as the steering was done with the paddle, and Luka was accustomed to keeping the boat straight when paddling. He was, however, nervous with the sail, which was boomed straight out with a light spar Godfrey had cut for the purpose. However as the wind was dead aft there was no fear of this jibing so long as the boat's course was kept true; this was rendered all the more easy by the steady drag of the boat astern.
  • "Yes, most of our people certainly feel tat way but not everyone. You and I sometimes were a little more vocal about our opinions so we attracted attention," Belo explained. "We're adult males in our prime years, Rafe. Maybe we weren't popular enough to get elected since we do rub some people te wrong way. After all, you're an imposing guy and lupuns don't like being frightened. Te ones who have some reason to be scared, I mean. You know I don't mean you. I, on the other hand, sometimes get carried away witt my witticisms and folks may tink I'm sarcastic. Some say I'm a bit of a know-it-all."
  • Meg throve in the mansion; she blossomed, if that can be said of evil things. She became, in fact, extraordinarily beautiful, but not in a way that draws healthy men. Her face, a bone-white, eerily pretty, almost Oriental mask, possessed an apparent ability to absorb or reflect light according to mood. sometimes circles appeared beneath her eyes, vanishing even as you stared. Her cheeks might be bruised one moment and alabaster the next. And her lips, poison and plum, could swell like leeches on a pig, or thin to two slowly pursing lines.
  • Oh no, no. sometimes I am pretty well off; but often our cruel men order me about, and beat me with the rope's-end if I do not do quickly what they command.
  • When he wasn't climbing up rock faces, the elf-captain had led them around the mountain, sometimes to find a better path or to scale a rough set of switchbacks. They hiked across boulders, up through narrow ravines in the rock and along pathwaysall the while, snakes and insects skittered into trees or through fist-sized holes in the rock, but Trevor was too tired to be scared of them anymore.
  • Sometimes one side of the face and sometimes the other was presented, the transition being effected by two instantaneous jerks, with a slight pause between, during which the terrible eyes transfixed us. At such moments the creature--though he bore the form of a man--seemed to project his dreadful countenance toward the object of his inspection like a monstrous bird stretching forth its neck toward its prey. The effect was indescribable, terrifying, paralyzing! The eyes glowed like fanned embers.
  • The Nebraska, in its passage through the Black Hills, is confined to a much narrower channel than that through which it flows n the plains below; but it is deeper and clearer, and rushes with a stronger current. The scenery, also, is more varied and beautiful. sometimes it glides rapidly but smoothly through a picturesque valley, between wooded banks; then, forcing its way into the bosom of rugged mountains, it rushes impetuously through narrow defiles, roaring and foaming down rocks and rapids, until it is again soothed to rest in some peaceful valley.
  • Bane seemed to become increasingly furious with her, jerking her arm and shoving her along before him, sometimes thrusting her close to the bodies. Silently she wished them a safe journey to the Lady, knowing that if she said it aloud Bane would slap her. The crashing and shouts of the looting troops echoed through the castle, and there seemed no end to the passages and rooms.
  • The boat itself rattled along with that insensibility of mechanism that sometimes astounds an apprehensive man. Twenty minutes later, she turned into the open lane, and was rushing westward again at full steam.
  • "Yes, Lady, I'll come to my point right off. Now, it's not of great matter, but I be looking for one Abel DeGroot, a man of advanced years. Barley-water they sometimes calls him, on account he likes his beer, not hard drink as do most. White-haired he should be, of age, and often a great white beard. Not a man of fine, er, sensibilities as it were, but better eddycated than one might think. He'd been wandering in this area, as I hears. So, have you seen such a one, I'm wondering?"
  • Oh! well I sometimes say things that don't come from the heart, you know, Jack. Wait, me boy, till I get good and rested up, and mebbe I'll sing a different tune. Ask Ned here if it's me that often shows the white flag when trouble comes.
  • "It certainly would. It's happened just that way lots and lots of times. Many campers are careless, and don't seem to realize that a very few sparks will be enough to start the dry leaves burning. sometimes people see that their fire is just going out, as they think, and they don't feel that it's necessary to pour water on it and make sure that it's really dead.
  • "Maybe. I mean, yeah, thats one reason. Forest, how many of those guys were teammates at the start of this year? Not all of them. sometimes families arent who youre born to, but the ones you love. Jody loved us, fathered those three kids out there. But he loved something else more. What about our mom and dad? They never come down here, never see their grandkids. You notice how Erika and Nat would rather go see baseball games and the beach than drive up to Oregon and visit grandparents they hardly know?"
  • It dawned upon him, as he paced restlessly back and forth, that although his father had been here more than once in his youth and manhood, he had never heard him speak of La Glorieuse nor of Flix Arnault, whose letters he had read after his father's death a few months ago--those old letters whose affectionate warmth indeed had determined him, in the first desolation of his loss, to seek the family which seemed to have been so bound to his own. Morose and taciturn as his father had been, surely he would sometimes have spoken of his old friend if--Worn out at last with conjecture; beaten back, bruised and breathless, from an enigma which he could not solve; exhausted by listening with strained attention for some movement in the next room, he threw himself on his bed, dressed as he was, and fell into a heavy sleep, which lasted far into the forenoon of the next day.
  • In the lower seams mandrills were sometimes used as gages to measure the length for wooden props.
  • However, sometimes you may need to burn at a lower speed in order to avoid a buffer underrun error.
  • Trumpeter swans are well adapted for the harsh environments in which they sometimes live.
  • All this while the little panel of pine wood remained over the chimney in the mill-kitchen with the cuckoo clock and the waxen Calvary, and sometimes it seemed to Nello a little hard that whilst his gift was accepted he himself should be denied.
  • It didnt matter who one was, or had been, success was the only measure that counted. Many self-made men paraded their affluence in brazen display, often to the point of vulgarity. Of course there was another side to all this, the upstanding communities and religious congregations that believed in social values and a strong moral code. It was sometimes hard to find a comfortable niche between these extremes.
  • The more Von Bloom reflected, the more was he convinced of this. There they were, in the middle of a black naked plain, that without a green spot extended beyond the limits of vision. How much farther he could not guess; but he knew that the devastations of the migratory locust sometimes cover an area of thousands of miles! It was certain that the one that had just swept past was on a very extensive scale.
  • But this is a somewhat trite answer, no matter how attractive is sometimes seems to me.
  • Wives shouldn't nag. There was no reason for them to nag. They had no worries, they just had to do the washing and cooking. A simple life, just wash and cook, sometimes darn socks. Once in a while they would do a little wood chopping, but not often. Just darn socks, maybe mend his shirt ... and clean the house once or twice a week. He had to prepare for everything, worry about everything. Wives just darn socks ... maybe touch up the porch with a little paint or carry water from the well or fold laundry or buy groceries or ...
  • This type of polymorphism is sometimes called parametric polymorphism.
  • Banks will need to overcome the perception that they sometimes push their own funds and improve their middle-of-the- pack performance as money managers if they want to attract assets from investors. Goldman Sachss stock and bond mutual funds have trailed about 61 percent of their respective peers on average over the five years ended Sept. 30, and about 52 percent over the past three years, according to data from Morningstar Inc. in Chicago. JPMorgans mutual funds have been beaten by 42 percent of rivals over the past five years, while Wells Fargos have lagged behind 44 percent, the Morningstar data show.
  • On the crane hung two or three hooks, and on these, over the fire, mother did most of her cooking. As we had no oven, mother had what we called a bake kettle; this was a flat, low kettle, with a cast cover, the rim of which turned up an inch or two, to hold coals. In this kettle, she baked our bread. The way she did it; she would heat the lid, put her loaf of bread in the kettle, take the shovel and pull out some coals on the hearth, set the kettle on them, put the lid on and shovel some coals on to it. Then she would watch it, turn it round a few times, and the bread was done, and it came on the table steaming. When we all gathered around the family board we did the bread good justice. We were favored with what we called "Michigan appetites." sometimes when we had finished our meal there were but few fragments left, of anything except the loaf, which was four or five inches through, a foot and a half across, and four and a half feet in circumference.
  • But the excitement caused by the news very speedily died away, and they again became listless and indifferent. All worked for a little time in their gardens, but beyond that only those who had made some sort of occupation for themselves had anything to interest themselves actively in. sometimes they played chess, draughts, or cards, but they did so, as Godfrey observed, in a half-hearted manner, with the exception, indeed, of one of the professors, who was by far the strongest chess-player of the party, and who passed all his time in inventing problems which, when complete, he carefully noted down in a book, with their solutions.
  • Higher up we saw men busy with nets which were attached to the end of a great bamboo pole, balanced upon a strong upright post fixed in the river's bottom, and by means of this balanced pole the net was let down into the depths of the river, and hoisted from time to time, sometimes with a few glittering little fish within the meshes, sometimes having nothing but weed.
  • "In later times many kinds of strong and poisonous drinks were made, and untold harm was done by their use. Drunkenness was the most fruitful source of crime and misery; it, more than any other cause, filled the jails, the almshouses and the insane asylums; it kept men in poverty and squalor; it scattered families and changed men, and sometimes women, too, into beasts. No class or profession was free from the evil, for it disqualified the scholar and statesman for their duties just as it unfitted the laborer for his daily task. It helped to debauch politics and public morals, while it brought disgrace and ruin to private reputation and character. More money was lost by it than was spent to educate and Christianize the world, and it cost more precious lives than war and pestilence combined. Being a crime utterly selfish and debasing, as well as extremely tenacious of its hold upon the individual life, it was almost the greatest enemy to the spread of the gospel.
  • The single thing which made the room she entered different from all the other rooms in the quarter was a white bed. The two other beds had the usual patchwork quilts and yellow slips. Religion touched a light-wood splinter to the fire, and holding the light above her head, went up to the white bed. The face on the pillow was of that pure lustrous whiteness which is sometimes seen in very young children; the features were perfect. She seemed a creature of an entirely different sphere--as different from Religion as a butterfly from a grub, and yet there was an indefinable likeness between the two.
  • He awoke disorientated and it took him some time to determine where the pit was, but when he found it he was pleased. The leaf had fallen, along with a large round evil-looking scuttler with a thick shell on stop. It looked like a Mist Crab (which sometimes had taken the Fisher's bait and been hauled up into the treetops), but it had dome-shaped armour on top and no pincers. Ambrosius poked it with a stick and it twittered.
  • The Great Rift Valley runs through the country from north to south, and to the east of the valley lies Lake Malawi (also called Lake Nyasa), making up over three-quarters of Malawi's eastern boundary. Lake Malawi is sometimes called the Calendar Lake as it is about 365 miles (587 km) long and 52 miles (84 km) wide. The Shire River flows from the south end of the lake and joins the Zambezi River 250 miles (400 km) farther south in Mozambique. The surface of Lake Malawi is located at 1,500 feet (457 m) above sea level, with a maximum depth of 2,300 feet (701 m), which means the lake bottom is over 700 feet (213 m) below sea level at some points.
  • Now, Nat, I'm going to give you a chance to appreciate what it means to steer a big vessel. I'll tell you just what to do, and I think you can do it. We have a clear course ahead of us, the lake is calm, and I guess you can handle the wheel all right. You know about the compass, so I don't have to tell you. Now take your place here, and grasp the spokes of the wheel lightly but firmly. Stand with your feet well apart, and brace yourself, for sometimes there will come a big wave that may shift the rudder and throw you off your balance.
  • Brides traditionally wear white to symbolize purity, although variations, including ivory, cream or pastels are sometimes used.
  • Carameth volunteered. "Mantadian hornets are hornets about this big," he held his hands about a foot apart, "and are intelligent beings. They're not intelligent like us. More like some dogs. sometimes smarter. They're fiercely loyal to Xyledes. Their sting is said to be intensely painful and quick to kill. It's less than twenty breaths once stung before you die. But," he shook his head, "no one's ever survived to tell about it. And they fly, and are very, very fast."
  • Warm mild days and luminous nights. sometimes he could not sleep for thinking how delicious it was to lie awake and see the sun come up.
  • "He did. Geoff used the girl's father, Bill for…" she hesitates. "Odd jobs, driving and such like." She shrugs aside the apparently inconvenient details. "Bill was a drug user. Geoff didn't like that. They had words about it a few times. Sue, the mother, was a junkie too. They lived in a rented farm cottage near the woods. sometimes they'd leave little Kylie on her own out there. She was only seven. She could've wandered off anywhere, anything could have happened to her. Those woods go for miles." It's as if this is her explanation. I wonder if she has even the tiniest doubt about her husband.
  • In 1817, John Williams and his wife, Mary Chawner, voyaged to the Society Islands, a group of islands that included Tahiti, accompanied by William Ellis and his wife. John and Mary established their first missionary post on the island of Raiatea. From there, they visited a number of the Polynesian island chains, sometimes with Mr & Mrs Ellis and other London Missionary Society representatives. Landing on Aitutaki in 1821, they used Tahitian converts to carry their message to the Cook islanders. One island in this group, Rarotonga (said to have been discovered by the Williamses), rises out of the sea as jungle-covered mountains of orange soil ringed by coral reef and turquoise lagoon; Williams became fascinated by it. John and Mary had ten children, but only three survived to adulthood. The Williamses became the first missionary family to visit Samoa.
  • I do not say that all Americans nor all Englishmen are entitled to the glory of such a holy motive for conquest. No. Too large a proportion, alas! are actuated only by the ignoble idea of selfish or national aggrandisement. The robber is often found in the same camp, and fighting under the same banner, with the soldier of Freedom. It is not strange, therefore, that the true sons of Liberty should sometimes be associated with its bastard children of the shackle and the whip.
  • A family occupied the building at the time of the battle, and remained there during the whole contest. When the battle raged most fiercely the cellar proved a place of refuge. Shells tore through the house, sometimes from the National batteries, and sometimes from Rebel guns. One shell exploded in a room where three women were sitting. Though their clothes were torn by the flying fragments, they escaped without personal injury. They announced their determination not to leave home so long as the house remained standing.
  • A good portion of the following day was wasted trying to recover four animals that had escaped. In order that they might graze properly it was necessary to let them loose. They sometimes strayed away long distances. Occasionally they hid in the shade of the matto (forest and shrub), and it was easy to miss them while looking for them. Luckily, two of my men--Alcides and a man called Antonio--were excellent trackers, and sooner or later they were generally able to bring back the animals, which was not at all difficult, as one only had to follow the marks of their hoofs to find where they had gone.
  • Ned Land was about forty years old. A man of great heightover six English feethe was powerfully built, serious in manner, not very sociable, sometimes headstrong, and quite illtempered when crossed. His looks caught the attention, and above all the strength of his gaze, which gave a unique emphasis to his facial appearance.
  • These slow roads sometimes led me into potential trapsmiracle miles clogged with Walmart and Krogers traffic. I felt less exposed and more in control, my direction less predictable among the corn fields and wood lots.
  • Using all the woodcraft of which he was master, he spent the remainder of the day in searching for such a pass. He scanned every part of his field of vision, but the day was drawing to a close before anything like success came to him. He had learned that the warriors to the east and west of the Rockies made journeys now and then back and forth. sometimes these were raiding expeditions, at other times were merely rambles or visits, when the red men proved themselves capable of hospitality and friendship.
  • Marduk was enjoying the view of Central Park out the window in front of his desk. Lately he had been feeling tired and nostalgic. The years were starting to creep up on him and the memories kept flooding into his mind. sometimes he could turn them off, but most of the time he chose to let the memories come.
  • The sight that met our gaze was certainly not a little amusing. On the top of a log which we sometimes used as a table, sat the black cat, with a very demure expression on its countenance; and in front of it, sitting on the ground, with his legs extended on either side of the log, was Peterkin. At the moment we saw him he was gazing intently into the cat's face, with his nose about four inches from it, - his hands being thrust into his breeches pockets.
  • It may seem self evident, but sometimes they can appear trustworthy.
  • Bulldog's life had provided him with different sleeping moods; it was a curious subconscious matter of mental adjustment before he slipped away from the land of knowing. sometimes he could sleep like a tired laborer, heavily, unresponsive to the noise of turmoil; at other times, when deep sleep might cost him his life, his senses hovered so close to consciousness that a dried leaf scurrying before the wind would call him to alert action. So now he lay on his blanket, sometimes over the border of spirit land, and sometimes conscious of the buckskin's pull at the crisp grass. Once he came wide awake, with no movement but the lifting of his eyelids. He had heard nothing; and now the gray eyes, searching the moonlit plain, saw nothing. Yet within was a full consciousness that there was something ª not close, but hovering there beyond.
  • "I know," she sighed, trying to bring herself under control. "My fathers arguments are sometimes circular and dont have to make sense. I mean, Id proved that I could attend Caltech, even being black, and on a full scholarship at that, in spite of being from a substandard school. But, there was no selling him on Caltech, and that was that. But as far as I was concerned Georgia Tech was perfectly adequate."
  • Physics covers a wide range of phenomena, from elementary particles (such as quarks, neutrinos and electrons) to the largest superclusters of galaxies. Included in these phenomena are the most basic objects composing all other things. Therefore physics is sometimes called the "fundamental science". Physics aims to describe the various phenomena that occur in nature in terms of simpler phenomena. Thus, physics aims to both connect the things observable to humans to root causes, and then connect these causes together.
  • It's lucky that I'm able to read any sort of old writing, remarked Elmer, not without a touch of boyish pride; "it's a gift with me, and Hen sometimes came to ask me to tell him what he'd set down, for after it got cold he couldn't well make it out himself."
  • Men may cover mother earth with deeds and mortgages, call her their own and live upon her bounty, little thinking of the hardships, toils and privations, that were endured by those who preceded them. How they labored, toiled and sweat, sometimes without enough to eat and not knowing where the next meal was coming from. I know this was the case with some of the first settlers.
  • "My grandma told me. I know all about incorporeal beings. Wights for example go uwaaaaaah and sometimes clank their chains, and wraiths..."
  • The current of the Mississippi causes islands to be destroyed in some localities and formed in others. A large object settling at the bottom of the stream creates an eddy, in which the floating sand is deposited. Under favorable circumstances an island will form in such an eddy, sometimes of considerable extent.
  • Our Sabbaths were days of rest. The Christian Indians had been taught by their faithful missionaries the fourth commandment, and they kept it well. Although far from their homes and their beloved sanctuary, they respected the day. When they camped on Saturday night, all the necessary preparations were made for a quiet, restful Sabbath. All the wood that would be needed to cook the day's supplies was secured, and the food that required cooking was prepared. Guns were stowed away, and although sometimes ducks or other game would come near, they were not disturbed. Generally two religious services were held and enjoyed.
  • "Yemen changed hands several times, belonging to Abyssinia, Persia, and the caliphs of Arabia, and has been fought for by Portuguese, Turks, and Egyptians; but now it is a Turkish province. England had reason to demand satisfaction from the Arab authorities for injuries done to her Indian subjects. The negotiations failed, and there was evident treachery. England does her work thoroughly in such cases; and Aden was promptly bombarded, and then seized by a naval and military force in 1839. This is said to be the first territory acquired during the reign of Queen Victoria; and the nation's record is not so bad as sometimes stated.
  • Great! cried Brimmer. "Yes; sometimes the fellows do like to know a quiet little place where they can have a good game without a discipline officer butting in. Good enough; I'll tell some of the fellows about this place; but you must keep it quiet, and not let anyone else into that room."
  • For some days their life continued as before. Cyrus Harding and Gideon Spilett worked together, sometimes chemists, sometimes experimentalists. The reporter never left the engineer except to hunt with Herbert, for it would not have been prudent to allow the lad to ramble alone in the forest; and it was very necessary to be on their guard. As to Neb and Pencroft, one day at the stables and poultryyard, another at the corral, without reckoning work in Granite House, they were never in want of employment.
  • DIANE STIFFENED WITH FEAR AS SHE HEARD ROLAND'S FOOTSTEPS ON THE stairs. All winter long, since he came back from Beziers and his encounter with Nicolette, he had not been himself. His speech was unrelievedly bitter. He drank. He brooded. sometimes he would stare at Diane for long moments without saying anything.
  • `After that first night with Sascha,' she began, and laughed as he perked up. `After that first night with Sascha, I began to see him constantly. He was a strange one. sometimes he refused to come, said he wanted to conserve his essence.'
  • "No objection--of course not," interrupted Mr Smith; "Robin will do quite as well, though a little longer; but that's no matter. Good-bye, Robin, and--and--don't think too hard. It sometimes hurts digestion; good-bye."
  • During this time in which his body was so actively employed, his mind was almost as active, and went out on all sorts of excursions, some of them beneficial and some of them otherwise. sometimes the thought came to him, as he plodded along bearing his heavy bags, that he was no more than a common thief, carrying away treasures which did not belong to him. Then, of course, he began to reason away these uncomfortable reflections. If this treasure did not belong to him, to whom did it belong? Certainly not to the descendants of those Spaniards from whom the original owners had striven so hard to conceal it. If the spirits of the Incas could speak, they would certainly declare in his favor over that of the children of the men who, in blood and torture, had obliterated them and their institutions. sometimes such arguments entirely satisfied the captain; but if they did not entirely satisfy him, he put the whole matter aside, to be decided upon after he should safely reach the United States with such treasure as he might be able to take with him.
  • "You will be very comfortable here, Senor. It is so peaceful here in the street. sometimes one may think oneself in a village. It's only a hundred and twenty-five francs for the friends of the King. And I shall take such good care of you that your very heart will be able to rest."
  • Im really beating the shit out of that poor fan, I can tell. The shooting-gallery rattle of the gravel ricocheting off the blades is dulling now, sometimes followed by secondary rattles as the pebbles bounce back into the blades. Not sure what Ill do if the fan gives out before someone notices me up here.
  • Naturally, the prettier women were reserved to take care of the officers quarters. In contrast to the sturdy types who were contracted to clean the enlisted mens quarters, they officers chose young, delicately featured girls in their early to late twenties. sometimes an officer would find a particularly attractive girl and arrange for her to be hispersonalmaid.
  • Captain Baker was freezing. About an hour after he started his journey back to Dalarö and his ship it had started to snow. Thick white snowflakes danced everywhere around him. In fact, everything was white, it felt like he sailed in dense fog. And it was so quiet. Aboard ship, there were always noises, even in a calm. And there were always people. But here was only cold white nothingness. Except for him and the horse he was riding. And some peculiar horse it was. Some Nordic breed, well accustomed to the cold weather it was small, not much bigger as a pony. Trotting along well enough, it sometimes started to pace in a most uncommon way, making him almost seasick before he got the animal to walk decently again.
  • This strong animal, whose height sometimes exceeds two meters, has a straight beak; wings long, and formed of tufted feathers of a bluish shade; feet formed of three claws, furnished with nails--which essentially distinguishes it from the ostriches of Africa.
  • Often they will use holes in trees as nests rather than building their own, sometimes using old squirrel drays.
