  • Having made this successful conveyance, he shifted his eyes alternately from the young gentleman to the broker for a considerable pause, during which he in silence reproached the last for introducing such a beggarly varlet to his acquaintance; then taking the pipe from his mouth, "Sir," said he, addressing himself to the Count, "if I had all the inclination in the world to comply with your proposal, it is really not in my power. My correspondents abroad have remitted such a number of bad bills of late, that all my running cash hath been exhausted in supporting their credit. Mr. Ferret, sure I am, you was not ignorant of my situation; and I'm not a little surprised that you should bring the gentleman to me on business of this kind; but, as the wise man observes, Bray a fool in a mortar, and he'll never be wise." So saying, with a most emphatic glance directed to the broker, he rung the bell, and called for the reckoning; when, finding that he was to be the guest of Renaldo, he thanked him drily for his good cheer, and in an abrupt manner took himself away.
  • We shall have no further occasion to speak of M. Felix Tholomyes. Let us confine ourselves to saying, that, twenty years later, under King Louis Philippe, he was a great provincial lawyer, wealthy and influential, a wise elector, and a very severe juryman; he was still a man of pleasure.
  • On reaching the back of the next hut, which was also empty. Jack motioned to us to halt, and coming close to us looked earnestly in each of our faces without saying a word. I supposed that, like a wise general, he was reviewing his troops seeing whether the men he was about to lead into battle were fit for their work.
  • As far as Ristalln, he is brash, young, and a bit of a troublemakerseeking the thrill of battle even if he has to create one. Such is not an attitude one wishing to attain knighthood should have. Yet, Ristalln is courageous, loyal, and has an affinity towards Grahamas. I have no doubt that if they were partnered together he would be a valuable asset for the Champion. He has skill and he is a very talented swordsman; I just wonder if the best thing for him right now would be to remain Graham's squire and learn more about the world and more from the wise Champion before he is given his own tasks and duties.
  • Yes, because others in old times warred in the same way, and not having the same impetus they were bound to lose; but now they have become wiser, and see what they are doing.
  • "You haven't tried to play the game," he answered tensely. "For months you've been withdrawing into your shell. You've been clanking your chains and half-heartedly wishing for some mysterious power to strike them off. It wasn't a thing you undertook lightly. It isn't a thing--marriage, I mean--that you hold lightly. That being the case, you would have been wise to try making the best of it, instead of making the worst of it. But you let yourself drift into a state of mind where you--well, you see the result. I saw it coming. I didn't need to happen in this afternoon to know that there were undercurrents of feeling swirling about. And so the way you feel now is in itself a penalty. If you let Monohan cut any more figure in your thoughts, you'll pay bigger in the end."
  • For example, wise Judge in the Ministry of Justice, Sovereign in the civil service, Commander-in-Chief in the army, Caliph in the learned establishment, and so on; it is the same with the rest of his names and titles.
  • It was, I think, in the month of May in the year 1854 that I went hunting in rough country between the White and Black Umvolosi Rivers, by permission of Panda--whom the Boers had made king of Zululand after the defeat and death of Dingaan his brother. The district was very feverish, and for this reason I had entered it in the winter months. There was so much bush that, in the total absence of roads, I thought it wise not to attempt to bring my wagons down, and as no horses would live in that veld I went on foot. My principal companions were a Kafir of mixed origin, called Sikauli, commonly abbreviated into Scowl, the Zulu chief Saduko, and a headman of the Undwandwe blood named Umbezi, at whose kraal on the high land about thirty miles away I left my wagon and certain of my men in charge of the goods and some ivory that I had traded.
  • "Please call if you want us," he said, and nodding to Lee and Bill to follow, he took them across into his wife's room where they awaited a signal from the General. The wise Major knew that anything the General might say to Frank would be burned forever on his memory. For the General was not only a very great man but a wise one as well, and his words were always words of wisdom, and they were often words of mercy and forgiveness as well.
  • "Oh, my Antonio, I do know of some therefore reputed wise only for saying nothing!—who, I am very sure, if they should speak, would almost dam up those ears which their hearing brothers would call fools!"
  • Roger took with eagerness the long official envelope handed him by Roberts, his first letter of instructions since he became a member of the Survey, and found therein a brief order, requiring him to report at the El Tovar Hotel, Grand Canyon, Ariz., on the first day of the month following. The same envelope contained, moreover, a personal letter from Mitchon, in which, though of course no official recognition could be made, was a phrase worded in such wise as to show that the boy had been well spoken of by Field, and that this new appointment was due to satisfaction with his first few weeks on the Survey. The lad colored with pleasure as he read it.
  • It is all right, my child, I said, quickly, and with all the kindness that I could put into my tones. "Thou wert talking to the wise One, not to me--and I have forgotten all that I heard. Thou art come from Fray Antonio?"
  • For sure, with regard to Divine Oneness, all the Divine Names may be found in those spheres and levels, they are manifested together with the titles, but just as in the Ministry of Justice the title of wise Judge was fundamental and dominant and there the rest of the kings titles looked to its command and were dependent on it, so too in each level of creatures, in each heaven, one Name, one Divine title, is dominant, and the other titles look to it.
  • It seemed terrible to have him once more lying helpless in the bottom of the boat, and as the lad gazed at his companion, he began to think it would be wise to study surgery, ready for acting in an emergency like this.
  • Rostov saw that it had been well considered by them. Sonya had already struck him by her beauty on the preceding day. Today, when he had caught a glimpse of her, she seemed still more lovely. She was a charming girl of sixteen, evidently passionately in love with him (he did not doubt that for an instant). Why should he not love her now, and even marry her, Rostov thought, but just now there were so many other pleasures and interests before him! "Yes, they have taken a wise decision," he thought, "I must remain free."
  • And with a few parting words of caution the Irishman took his departure, first pausing long enough to advise Tom to change his quarters if he was spared until the morrow, and suggesting that the wisest thing he could do was to get out of New York as speedily as he knew how.
  • We did not speak so much that day; she seemed a thought on the reserve, though not unkindly. As for me, all the time of our walking, and after we came home, and I had seen her put my flower into a pot of water, I was thinking to myself what puzzles women were. I was thinking, the one moment, it was the most stupid thing on earth she should not have perceived my love; and the next, that she had certainly perceived it long ago, and (being a wise girl with the fine female instinct of propriety) concealed her knowledge.
  • You are getting excited, my dear, said Thornton, patiently, with the air of a wise father who overlooks the petulance of his child. "I will go on. I had business on the Continent when poor Brandon's ruin occurred. You were with me, my dear, at Berlin when I heard about it. I felt shocked, but not surprised. I feared that it would come to that."
  • "Why, thou sayest well!" says Touchstone. But he adds, "I do now remember a saying: ‘The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.’"
  • Father, the girl pleaded; "do be serious with me. I've got something very important to show you, something I forgot all about until Helen reminded me. Helen thinks those men tried to kidnap you, and she's a pretty wise girl, as I've had occasion to find out."
  • One day, Jonathan is met by two gulls who take him to a "higher plane of existence" in that there is no heaven but a better world found through perfection of knowledge, where he meets other gulls who love to fly. He discovers that his sheer tenacity and desire to learn make him "pretty well a one-in-a-million bird." In this new place, Jonathan befriends the wisest gull, Chiang, who takes him beyond his previous learning, teaching him how to move instantaneously to anywhere else in the Universe. The secret, Chiang says, is to "begin by knowing that you have already arrived." Not satisfied with his new life, Jonathan returns to Earth to find others like him, to bring them his learning and to spread his love for flight. His mission is successful, gathering around him others who have been outlawed for not conforming. Ultimately, the very first of his students, Fletcher Lynd Seagull, becomes a teacher in his own right and Jonathan leaves to teach other flocks.
  • They had little to say to one another as they hurried along; their pace was such as to make it wise for them to save their breath. But when they reached the station they found they had some minutes to wait for a train, and they sat down on the platform to get their breath. They had already had one proof of the difference made by a state of war.
  • He could go and do that, unless my friend Yapper Five takes a hold on him and stops him. He gets up, writhing, slow and angry, just like I imagined he might. Then Yapper wise takes a hold of him, and bolts him down, just like I figured he might. Being a friend, after all, that's what he does.
  • Then he jumped down from the rock and took the trail at a discreet distance ahead of Jim's horse, who was held in check by his rider though his temper seemed in no wise abated. There was something sinister in the figure of the Mexican as he led the way down the trail.
  • But Truth is Brother of us all (Oh, Brother, if we knew!) Unspattered by the muddied lies That pass for wisdom of the wise Compassionate, alert, unbought, Of purity and presence wrought, Big Brother that includes us all Nor knows the name of Few!
  • Good-bye, Towser, old fellow! cried Bandy-legs, mockingly, as the dog started full-tilt for the farmhouse, yelping dolefully as he ran. "Next time get wise to the fact that things ain't always as green as they look. Took me for an easy mark, didn't you, but if I am a little crooked about the pins, that doesn't mean I'm not on to a few games. Come again when you can't stay so long. Tra-la-la!"
  • Coming to Amsterdam had been wise too. The Agents would be looking for her in Paris and Burgundy, so she must act from a safe distance until the last crucial minute.
  • Touchstone has quickly learned about the new dukes distaste for laughter at his own expense. "The more pity, that fools may not speak wisely of what wise men do foolishly!"
  • It was now nearly midnight, and, as Captain Derevaux suggested, it would be wise to go through the town without attracting attention, if possible.
  • On reaching the open air, Miss Seton at first nearly fainted. Restoratives of all sorts were recommended by her friends, but before any could be applied, she recovered, and endeavoured to laugh off any disagreeable inquiries as to the cause of her attack. The exertion necessary to do this still further aroused her, and she speedily became one of the most lively and animated of the party. I saw that she could now do very well without me, so I retired from her side. Sir Lloyd Snowdon took my place. He was enchanted, and abandoned himself to the happiness of the moment. She saw her advantage, and not unmindful of her wise mother's instructions, seemed resolved to make the most of it. Still I thought that I detected at times the signs of unnatural spirits, and forced laughter, and I would not have answered for the consequences had the so-called Count Gerovolio appeared in the midst of us with a hundred well-armed followers, and summoned her to accompany him.
  • "Older than yourself, I deemed myself wiser. But the oldest and wisest may be at times mistaken. I do not deem it a humiliation to confess that I have been so, and about yourself. And, sir, if you do not think it such to forgive my abrupt--I should rather say, barbarous--behaviour, it would rejoice me once more to welcome you as my guest. Captain Maynard! I am much changed since you last saw me--in the pride both of spirit and person. I am upon my deathbed; and wish to see you before parting from the world.
  • Worthy Tartlet, folks do not make themselves Crusoes, they become Crusoes, and you are not sure that you are wise in comparing your position with that of the heroes of the two English and Swiss romances!
  • After long and earnest gazing, and much whispered conversation--though there was no occasion for caution at such a distance from the land--they came to the conclusion that a vessel lay concealed just within the mouth of the creek towards which the wind was driving them, and that, as they apparently had not been discovered by those who owned the vessel, their wisest course would be to land, if possible without attracting attention, somewhat farther along the coast.
  • Filipos said, "Some who call themselves the wise say Elah is the All-One, but a lesser elah rules the world and claims to be its lord. This lesser elah has many names. One is Yao."
  • Samuel Cofort spoke quickly and with an edge to his voice. "I will not object as long as another two percent of the fund is apportioned for repairs to the town hall. I'm sure this very meeting room, as well of some of the offices, might need repairs. For all we know, the very chairs we are sitting on may have received some unseen damage. It would be wise to correct such problems before anyone gets hurt. I think it would also be a good idea to replace the older furniture in our personal offices."
  • Earth, and Seas, and Winds, sing your great chant of love! Heaven and Space and Time, echo back the melody! For Life has called to us the answer of his riddle! Heart to heart we sit, and lips to lips, and we are more wise than Solomon, and richer than barbarian kings, for Happiness is ours.
  • "You mean a sanguinan? And a lupun too," Walerian said as he glanced at Rafe. "Our Mayre, the wise One, will welcome a chance to speak to both of them. I hear he has some news of Hinterland." Before Rafe could ask anything, however, Sybille and Graice stepped from behind the wagon. Walerian responded as soon as he saw them. Turning to one of his men, he said, "Filon, go fetch the carriage," and the rider galloped away. To Sybille and Graice he said, "We have special orders concerning women of your description. We'll get you to Lucidus much faster than this wagon possibly could."
  • Another reason which he was too wise to give, was that this same Mexican was a most dangerous animal to handle even if taken unawares, and he preferred to run the risk himself.
  • How if I grow wrongly then?’ asked Melivar. ‘How if I take this secret for myself, holding it for my own glory rather than the Suns? How if I betray your trust? And if death does take you beforetimes what will become of it and me? Or if you live your rightful time and give the gift to Nicovar yourself, can you then ungive it to me? Its folly, grandfather. I am not wise enough for such a secret. I am too young.’
  • Well, we've got a hunch, Mr. Trotter, said Lil Artha, bound to get his say in the affair, "that we might put you wise about that same thief."
  • Yes, came the quick answer. "And while under some conditions I've been able to get along for a short time without dropping down, as a rule I've found it wise to look for a landing-place before things got to the point of desperation and avoid a fall, possibly in the midst of a German battalion."
  • Bert shrieked with fright and pain, and in an instant Frank was beside him, and had his strong hands tight round Lion's throat. Immediately the old dog let Bert go, and slunk off to his kennel, while Frank, seizing his handkerchief, pressed it to the ugly wound in Bert's cheek. Great though the pain was, Bert quickly regained his self-possession, and hastening home had his wounds covered with plaster. Fortunately, they were not in any wise serious. They bled a good deal, and they promised to spoil his beauty for a time at least, but, as there was no reason to suppose that the dog was mad, that was the worst of them.
  • "I have heard enough," he whispered, "to assure me that a plot, of which I had already heard a rumour, has nearly been laid. We fell in with the chief plotters on the islet the other night; the band here is in connection with them and awaits their arrival before carrying out their dark designs. There is nothing very mysterious about it. One tribe plotting to attack another--that is all; but as a friend of mine dwells just now with the tribe to be secretly attacked, it behoves me to do what I can to save him. I am perplexed, however. It would seem sometimes as if we were left in perplexity for wise purposes which are beyond our knowledge."
  • I reckon you'll find an owl with wise eyes and feathers up there, if you wait, said the officer, with a smile. "The boy you refer to never could have traveled here alone."
  • Major Dale and Mr. MacAllister only remained long enough to see that everything was satisfactorily started, and then left, charging Ralph Willoby and Squire Travers to act as special officers. That this was a wise precaution was plainly demonstrated before the day ended.
  • Kenneth Jaffre became the darling of the community, his name was part of every conversation and it became politically wise for the mayor to appoint him Chief Inspector, even at the tender age of twenty-seven. If anything, his work became even less exciting. He read and filed reports, assigned duties to the officers, managed the limited funds allocated to the force and gave myriad speaking engagements which involved little more than outlining the history of police work and, for the amusement of his audience, identifying curious bylaws still on the books: the poop-stoop-and-scoop legislation decreed that horse droppings must be removed from the streets by the owner of the animal, before sunset.
  • This seemed the wisest course to pursue. So Paul, vexed though he was at the contrary actions of the airplane, buckled down to the job of guiding the machine and complained no more. But he made up his mind that if investigations proved the rival crew had been tampering with the Sky-Bird II he, for one, would do his part in giving them a warm time should they meet on the ground again.
  • "The Elder is the most learned member of our ranks. She represents the very wisest and balanced of the Masters, and is one of only two Archmages. She is essentially our leader, making sure that all relevant decisions are well-made. She will determine what skills you and your friends have, and what training will suit you best. In fact, despite the fact that Solomon and Ayna both chose you to be their student, the Elder must be the one to allow it. If she thinks poorly of the choice, then you will have to work your way through the ranks like everyone else," he said.
  • Her full name was Clele-Amia Emerick~Chancelar, and although her first name was certainly not the only thing that made the girl distinctive, it was indeed unique. Of all the people living in Annles-Scientia, only her father would ever have thought of naming a daughter after a legendary heroine of such antiquity. For that matter, the girl's mother was the only woman wise enough to understand his motive and tolerant enough to let him have his way. The story of the original Clele-Amia was known from the fairy tale that scholars sometimes told to their daughters. No one thought twice about the origin of the current Clele-Amia's name, however. Everyone knew who she was and they all called her Caelia.
  • "We sat silent, waiting for the cousin of Red Feather, the wise man who might help us. I heard the rattle of the bar as the helper lifted it, then the creak of the gate. Then a furious outcry, a confusion of howls and screams, a war-whoop and a rush of feet. The Indians were within the stockade. A moment later they burst into the shop and advanced upon us, uttering blood-curdling whoops and brandishing their hatchets and knives. McLeod reached for the musket above the desk, but before his fingers touched it Red Feather caught him by the arms, and with the help of the brother made him prisoner. At the same instant I was secured.
  • Molly looked at me out of the wise old eyes in her round baby face. "You go on back to yer movie, cause thats what yer really in love with. But you mind me: a movie dont feel ya inside it, and it cant love ya back."
  • Huss seemed to be choosing his words carefully. His voice was low to ensure that no one outside the room could hear. "I have never wanted to know the extent of your involvement with the Ploughman and his rebellion," he said. "I felt it was wise to stay ignorant. But now I feel that it may be best to know."
  • For this was one of the worst spells around. Tempered Spell was a soul's lost mind game of a maze. Only the weak and unwise got stuck in one. It didn't happen often, but sometimes a wise wizard would come into the crossroads maze. Tom saw that each road had a mystic stone statue at its beginning. He had seen at the end of one road that the statues didn't match. Tom thought to himself that it must be a key to this puzzle. He needed to find the one that matched and go that way. It had been a hundred years since more than one wizard, good or bad, had come here. This special place was created long ago when very old wizards did very unusual spells and meant it to be a place to keep dragons at bay that came into the forest way back then.
  • Amalatok, on whose mind the spirit of Christianity had been gradually making an impression, said promptly, "Let Grabantak be chief. He is wise in council and brave in war."
  • Mia slipped the Stracombe into a deep pocket that Aaramerielle had sewn into her shirt. Marigaff nodded in agreement with her hiding place. "We should be on our way, dear child. And Miagaff?" Mia saw concern, perhaps even worry, in the wise sorceresseyes.
  • Now, that is what I might call a proper dog, was Joan's comment. "He is at least wiser than you, Mr. Sheldon. He didn't require any teaching to recognize the difference between a Tahitian and a black boy. What do you think, Noah? Why don't he bite you? He savvee you Tahitian eh?"
  • You can make no hand of this, Davie, thinks I. "To bed with you like a wise lad, and try if you can sleep. To-morrow you may see your way."
  • Roaring horribly it came toward us at a ponderous, shuffling trot. I turned to Perry to suggest that it might be wise to seek other surroundings--the idea had evidently occurred to Perry previously, for he was already a hundred paces away, and with each second his prodigious bounds increased the distance. I had never guessed what latent speed possibilities the old gentleman possessed.
  • "You have much to teach me about dealing with humanity, oh wise one," Aiden replied with a half-smile as they stepped through the doorway before them. "So, you're talking to me again? I thought you were all upset with me."
  • She smiled demurely now, a gracious but silent hostess, bowing her head slightly as she lifted the vessel towards me by way of indicating its intended recipient, yet setting it out of my current reach upon the table. I was a stranger in another's dwelling in a strange and far off land... an unexpected shyness had come upon me. Inter-language intercourse had failed me thus far- I had vowed to work towards a more fundamental and low-key level of communication. She, wise to my verbal inadequacies, apparently, was operating under a similar proxy.
  • But it was not in human nature not to watch what could be seen of the combat; wise himself could not resist the temptation; one side was already taking flight, shooting at their pursuers as they went; and the two forces formed, with Wise's men, two converging lines which would very soon meet.
  • With that he approached, and offered the dog the rest of the food. In another minute he could have patted the heretofore savage beast on the back, only that Max was too wise to trouble a feeding dog.
  • "All right," agreed Arthur, grinning. "I'm wiser than you for once, Paul. I haven't even tried to find out. I know I can't guess, so I'm not wasting time trying to. I think we'll be lucky if we find out when we do get there."
  • There had been little need to spur Paul to courage on this matter. The wiser thing might have been to counsel him to moderation. He had set his back to his corner already.
  • You win the argument, announced Jimmie, wrinkling his freckled nose at his companion. "I always said you were the wise little fox!"
  • The camp exploded in a shindyeveryone awake and most on their feet, and some proposing to go search for wounded animals then and there. It gave the Captain trouble to quiet the more ardent spirits, but a few were wise enough to stay within blankets or bag, which number included Ralff, of course. None was allowed to leave by dark, though the nearby carcase, less than a hundred paces off, we immediately recovered.
  • During the short period of my absence from my native home, I had been taught two additional and essential lessons: the first, that men are not all as good as they might be; and the second, that I was not quite so wise as I had supposed myself. Having once been duped, the thought occurred that it was possible I might be duped again, and I thus acquired some small degree of what is called worldly caution. At once to display one vice and teach another, to expose fraud and inspire suspicion, is, to an unadulterated mind, a severe and odious lesson; and, when repeated too often, is in danger of inculcating a mistake infinitely more pernicious than that of credulity; that is, a conviction that man is depraved by nature, and a total forgetfulness that he is merely the creature of habit and accident.
  • For it is clearly obvious that well-ordered, wise acts cannot be without the one who performs them.
  • Alaska is making wise opportunities now in alternative energy sources for future years. When the scenario plays out effectively, Alaska might be a surprising leader in alternative energy.
  • This was the wisest course, and it was about to be followed when Herbert, pointing to a confused mass among the trees, exclaimed,
  • When the frying-pan warmed and lard sizzled, when the smell of bacon mingled with the smoke, then Morano was where all wise men and all unwise try to be, and where some of one or the other some times come for awhile, by unthought paths and are gone again; for that smoky, mixed odour was happiness.
  • Tony expressed his approval, and indeed it was the wisest course to take, for as it turned out the batteries were manned by Turks, who, on the following day, were to defend them valiantly, and the majority of whom were to lose their lives in doing so.
  • It was the happiest Christmas Day that Dan had ever known, and he told himself so as he walked slowly down South Street. Unschooled in the ethics of self-sacrifice as he was, he yet knew he had done something for a fellow man, for a man he despised; and something indefinable yet unmistakable told him it was very good. He felt bigger, broader, felt as though he had attained new stature in something that was not physical. And always, vaguely, he had been as anxious to feel this as he had been to get on in a material way. He had lost his rowboat in the act. And yet withal there was a certain fierce satisfaction in his loss--he had caught the spirit of Christmas. How much wiser, how much stronger he was to-day than on the previous afternoon.
  • I will tell you, he said and waggled a finger in front of their faces. "This is the Headquarters of the German Army Intelligence in the field. I am taking you before the Kommandant. And now we shall learn all about you two. Yes, you will be very wise to answer truthfully all the questions Herr Kommandant asks."
  • Nyoda said very little about the matter and did not upbraid her at all. She saw that Gladys's sins had come down on her head in a manner which would make a very deep impression, and that Gladys would emerge from the experience a sadder and wiser girl.
  • Gangrel brooded. 'The Nidhogg is no more than a beast, with a beasts volatility. Sometimes the wisest cannot second-guess the unwise. But I believe this will be so.’
  • Mr. Silver was evidently moved to the heart, as Bert, without sparing himself, told of his disobedience, his concealment, and the consequences that followed; and he had many a wise and tender word for the boy, whose confidence in him made him proud. From that day a peculiar fondness existed between the two, and Mr. Silver was inspired to increased fidelity and effort in his work because of the knowledge that one at least of his boys looked upon him with such affection and confidence.
  • There was one, however, who in no wise joined in it at all, and that one was Eustace Milne. He had had enough of campaigning to last him for the present, and for every reason mightily welcomed the news that they were ordered home. Of late an intense longing had corrie upon him to return, but now that that ardently desired consummation had been attained he realised that it was dashed with the sickening and desolating consciousness of hopes shattered. The campaign, so far as he was concerned, had been barren of result.
  • As we paddled around the island, putting in our best strokes, for we had no desire to be found in that vicinity when it was discovered on the British ship that one of the crew had deserted, I asked Jepson how he chanced to be aboard the enemy's vessel, and while his story related to a cruel wrong, it was in no wise exciting, or unusual.
  • "That was a wise thought of mine, Bes, which caused me to leave certain ornaments in the palace," I said. "As it is they have taken nothing."
  • "'In order to introduce the Kurepain into this locality, we have set aside one thousand bottles of this incomparable medicine. That number, and no more, we will dispose of at four dollars a bottle. Do not make a mistake. When the supply is exhausted, the price will rise to eight dollars a bottle, owing to a scarcity of one of the ingredients. We honestly advise you, if you are in pain or suffering, to take advantage of this rare opportunity. A word to the wise is sufficient. Order to-day.'"
  • I hope Uncle Sam is becoming wise to the game that is being played down here, Ned said, "and has sent a gunboat to look into it."
  • "I am a wise fellow," insists Dogberry, "and, which is more, an officer; and, which is more, a householder; and, which is more, as pretty a piece of flesh as any is in Messina!" he cries, his deep voice rising.
  • "The wise and favored-of-the-gods Living Buddha burned incense in a brazier and prayed to the Gods to reveal the lot of the Princes. In the blue smoke all saw a dark prison and the pallid, tortured bodies of the dead Princes. . . ."
  • It is our hope that you, my lord, will see fit to support the ascension of our newest brother noble. We feel that you are a brave and wise laird who will move forward with us in our quest to bring lasting peace, security, and stability to this land. We will await your reply,
  • In the midst of the savage throng was another white man, also a prisoner, who had been forced to assist at the barbarous scene just detailed. His lot, however, had been cast in far worse lines than that of Eustace, for his hands were tightly fastened behind his back and a reim connected his ankles in such wise that he could only take short steps--which painful fact he would every now and then forget, with the result of just so many ignominious "croppers." Whereat his dusky tormentors would shout with gleeful laughter.
  • Eanswyth, for her part, received the news quietly enough, as was her wont. Outwardly, that is. Inwardly she was silently, thankfully happy. The campaign was over--he was safe. In a few days he would be with her again--safe. A glow of radiant gladness took possession of her heart. It showed itself in her face--her eyes--even in her voice. It did not escape several of their neighbours and daily visitors, who would remark among themselves what a lucky fellow Tom Carhayes was; at the same time wondering what there could be in such a rough, self-assertive specimen of humanity to call forth such an intensity of love in so refined and beautiful a creature as that sweet wife of his--setting it down to two unlikes being the best mated. It did not escape Mrs Hoste, who, in pursuance of her former instinct, was disposed to attribute it to its real cause. But exuberant as the latter was in matters non-important, there was an under-vein of caution running through her disposition, and like a wise woman she held her tongue, even to her neighbours and intimates.
  • "The moral to this particular 'Ember-intrigueis jealousy ruins everything. So there yahave it, the real Eleana Monte story, behind the story. Well, and also some very wise advice to never give into the green eyed monster…" I told her.
  • He had arranged a long stout pole, with a short line and a hook at the small end. This latter he ornamented with a piece of bright red flannel some two inches square and supplied by Max, which he was wise enough to tie securely to the shank of the hook, well up from the barb, but so it concealed the point.
  • For the three following weeks Joe Buntin contrived to spend several days on shore in the society of Sergeant Ramrod's family, though the "Pretty Polly" during that time made several trips down Channel, and was very successful in falling in with some large East Indiamen, the pilotage money of which was considerable; and besides that she landed several rich passengers who paid well, so that Joe was rapidly becoming a wealthy man. He would have been wise to stick to his lawful and regular calling; but there was so much excitement in smuggling, and the profits of one trip were so much more than he could gain in several winters' hard toil, that he could not resist the temptation. Had he taken the trouble of comparing himself with others, he would, we suspect, have considered himself a more honest man than the railroad speculators of the present day.
  • Silence fell as wrinkled brows furrowed, searching their memories for such a dream, and ancient eyes narrowed and glanced at neighbours. Ellese scanned the assembly with growing desperation. For the last month, she had racked her brains for a solution. Surely one of these wise women knew the answer to this threat? Surely the Lady had given someone a sign, or a vision? The goddess would not abandon them in their hour of need.
  • Eden, fresh from Linkeham, on account of a terrible attack of fever ravaging the school to such an extent that it was considered wise to close it for a time, was enjoying the pleasant change, and wondering how long it would be before the school would reopen, and whether his father, Sir Edward Eden of Black Tor, would send him back.
  • The wise old man didn't expect that. He couldn't have. Nobody could have. He just stood there, with his eyes wide open, not really believing in what he was hearing.
  • If Michael was destined to be a prick, he was also smart enough to see his own faults. At fourteen, Michael could appreciate Grays relentless talent, and took it upon himself to make introductions, as if adopting the slight, unsophisticated youngster. A year later, Gray would be nearly raped by an overaggressive babysitter, but at that moment of their lives, he was an unsuspecting twelve-year-old who looked up to those older, wiser, in need. Like the horny predator who attacked Gray on a Halloween night, Michael was equally seeking to use Gray for his benefit, but not sexually as Janet Williams had done.
  • And such was Mr. Rae's manner that the Captain appeared to consider it wise to curb his rage, or at least suppress all reference to questions of honour in as far as they might be related to the question of birth and breeding.
  • It opened a tooth-lined maw, and its throat swelled like a bullfrog about to croak. A great gout of yellow fire seared from its mouth, and the fleeing soldiers died shrieking, only a few escaping by diving into the scrub on the side of the canyon. Its beauty and the horror of the soldiers deaths transfixed Mirra. The dragon slowed and approached the sprawled corpses, sniffing them. Its scales flashed in the dull light, and it filled the chasm like a river of silver, gold, and copper coins swirled artistically by a frozen current. The chiselled, dished head lifted and gazed around suspiciously. There was nothing evil about this animal. It was a natural creature, ancient and wise.
  • This music mads me!—let it sound no more; for though it have holp madmen to their wits, in me it seems it will make wise men mad!
  • While the stores lasted they worked in the creek; when the stock became so low as to threaten a famine, Tony, with the gold already won in his possession, started off, riding bare-backed for the spot where the saddles had been "planted," and carefully avoiding the men along the other creek. Finding the saddles where they had been left, he took his own and rode away towards Birralong, anticipating the entertainment he would have at the expense of the wise men who had prophesied so freely about the results of following up a wild-cat scheme.
  • Jeremy Swan grew up to be one of the great Americans of his day: a man strong, wise and independent. And although he became rich and highly honored, he never lost the simplicity of his ways.
  • The bishop steps forward, disturbed. "My lord, wise men neer sit and wail their woes, but presently prevent the ways to wailing!
