  • Even the old ocean itself could not show anything worse than some of the rapids that the boys had run. As for rocks, nothing could beat the canyon for them.
  • Winter gradually wore away--the snow-girt hills and valleys were divested of their mantle of gloom, and were clothed with vestments of green, spangled with crimson, blue, and gold flowers, the perfume of which called forth the soft hum of bees as they flew from flower to flower, extracting the honied dews. Far from the sunny South the birds came with their glad, cheering voices, giving forth a welcome to the dawning spring. The winter had been long and tedious, cheered only with the certainty that they knew which way they had to travel in order to reach the haunts of civilization; and though they had kept the hunger wolf at bay, their strength gradually gave out under their unhealthy diet, and when they were ready to travel, they were in a pitiful condition to endure its fatigues. Their horses were even worse off than themselves. Worn with privation to skeletons, they were drooping and spiritless; and had not the wanderers used great exertion to collect the young grass for them, they would have perished, for they were too languid to crop it themselves.
  • But I will give no certain answer, tonight. 'Tis a matter to be turned over in my mind, as it seems to me that I may gain much good by the alliance; and that, even if the Percys fail in their enterprise, I can be no worse off than I am, at present.
  • So there was no more to be said. I'd thought it might have been a lot worse than a girl. I'd thought he might have got married somewhere, sometime, and made a mess of it.
  • These things filled Beatrice with alarm, but there was worse behind. Mr. Davies began to send her presents, first such things as prize pigeons and fowls, then jewellery. The pigeons and fowls she could not well return without exciting remark, but the jewellery she sent back by one of the school children. First came a bracelet, then a locket with his photograph inside, and lastly, a case that, when she opened it, which her curiosity led her to do, nearly blinded her with light. It was a diamond necklace, and she had never seen such diamonds before, but from their size and lustre she knew that each stone must be worth hundreds of pounds. Beatrice put it in her pocket and carried it until she met him, which she did in the course of that afternoon.
  • The two women accompanied Billy into the kitchen where he found his jacket in the closet. Erin put twelve bottles of wine, eight red and four white, into a cardboard box. "Would you bring that along, Billy?" He followed Erin and Linda out a door onto a crushed shell path to The Guest House. Even with fur coats, the women were chilled by the iron cold of the late night made worse by the wind off the bay. The three of them hurried to the darkened cottage, Billy hampered by the box of wine, Erin and Linda by their high heels. When they reached the small wooden porch leading into the kitchen, Erin took a key, hanging within a set of wind chimes, to unlock the door.
  • Zhardann was still there, having changed into a comfortable lounging robe in the interim. At the creak of the door he looked over to me in the entranceway, and then glanced back across the room, to the other man over by the window. The new man was about my height but stockier, with a shock of straight black hair combed carefully to the side over his ears and flopping over his collar at the rear. His dark eyes were bloodshot, as was his nose, frankly, but his outfit was fine, all black with silver trim and a brocade neck ruffle, if a bit the worse for apparently having been worn around the clock for at least the last few days. Whether hed really been sleeping in his clothes was a toss-up, since he was another character who didnt look like hed been getting a whole lot of sleep lately in any position. Although Id been repeating the observation enough to make even myself doubt it, I was sure Id never met him before.
  • "Traitor are you!" Haddo snarled, on the verge of total incoherency. "Scapula help are you, but world rule he would! All of he destroy he will! worse than that are you - us kill now with gas promise you!"
  • O-Tar called me 'doddering fool' and I would face worse dangers than lie in the forbidden chambers of O-Mai to know it if he does not visit the chamber of O-Mai. Then indeed shall O-Tar fall!
  • Five shillings worse off, said Mike, when they parted for the night; "but I'm glad we got out of all that so easily.--I say, Cinder!"
  • "I want to take you with me, Serenity. I want it more than anything but, the damage I would cause is much worse than anything he ever managed."
  • The home fans booed but it was obvious the injury was worse than it appeared as a leg splint was brought on.
  • Oh yes, and he tasted it too--he'd taste anything in the shape of drink--but he spat it out, and then washed his mouth with brandy an' water. Mother took some too, and she said she had tasted worse drinks; and she only wished that father would take to it. That made father laugh heartily. Then I gave some to little May, and she said it was `So nice.'
  • Well, some of the best authorities has done it. They couldn't get the chain off, so they just cut their hand off and shoved. And a leg would be better still. But we got to let that go. There ain't necessity enough in this case; and, besides, Jim's a nigger, and wouldn't understand the reasons for it, and how it's the custom in Europe; so we'll let it go. But there's one thing--he can have a rope ladder; we can tear up our sheets and make him a rope ladder easy enough. And we can send it to him in a pie; it's mostly done that way. And I've et worse pies.
  • On the weekend I made an outright effort to take it easy. I hadn't been feeling too well for about a week and I decided to take a break from all the drink. I had been vomiting daily and shitting out nothing but blood. I hadn't bothered to go to the doctor because I didn't feel like getting anally probed by a man in a lab coat or, worse yet, a woman in a lab coat. I ignored my problems and eventually the bleeding went away on its own, but I still didn't feel too hot.
  • "And there you are, sir, and them's fax. They chucked them two pore chaps overboard, and, speaking up for my messmates and self, I says we don't hold with killing nobody 'cept in the name of dooty; but here's a set o' miserable beggars as goes about buying and selling the pore niggers, and treating 'em worse than they would a box o' worms to go fishing with. Why, it's murder, sir, wholesale, retail, and for exportation, as the man said over his shop door in our town o' Bristol, and if we can only get at 'em--well, I won't say what we'll do, but if there ain't some fatal accidents that day, my name ain't Tom."
  • Just the same, you had no right to let your cow keep to the middle of the road, cried Ben. "If we had had a worse accident we might have held you responsible."
  • As he walked, the nagging fear of being lost refused to go away. Was he making things worse by trying to figure out which way to go? Maybe he should stop and stay in one place, in case someone was looking for him.
  • "Im positive. Look, it cant be worse than me trying to do this with my non-dominant hand. Besides, youve endured enough of me sticking you with needles over the past few days."
  • Ai, father, benefactor! I was with you at confession, and acknowledged all my deeds in sincerity; among them were deeds not worse than the one I am now planning; how can you doubt that I will undertake it? Do you not know me?
  • Just below him was the finish of the dangerous fall, and as so often happens, the very last lap proved to be more heavily charged with disaster than any of those above, even though they appeared to be far worse.
  • They had not slept, only some of them had fallen into drowsy somnolence, heavy and nerve-racking, worse indeed than any wakefulness.
  • There was yet a chance. As Larry the Bat he knew every den and lair below the dead line, and he knew, too, the Wowzer's favourite haunts. There was yet a chance, only one in a thousand, it was true, almost too pitiful to be depended upon--but yet a chance. The Wowzer had probably not worked alone, and he and his pal, or pals, would certainly not remain uptown either to examine or divide their spoils--they would wait until they were safe somewhere in one of their hell holes on the East Side. If he could find the Wowzer, reach the man BEFORE THE LETTER WAS OPENED--Jimmie Dale's lips grew tighter. THAT was the chance! It he failed in that--Jimmie Dale's lips drooped downward in grim curves at the corners. A chance! Already the Wowzer had at least a half hour's lead, and, worse still, there was no telling which one of a dozen places the man might have chosen to retreat to with his loot.
  • Well, said he, "I'm glad of that. It's bad enough to think you're bein' bombarded by rocks that just take a silly notion to drop when we come along; but it'd be a heap sight worse if the men of the Big Smokies were throwing such pebbles at us, haphazard. Whew! I'm hungry, fellers; who says grub?"
  • Shirley raised his head, but still kept his eyes on the treasure beneath him, and swore worse than before. The captain was shocked.
  • "You don't need me," Jorden said at last. He was angry, and considered that he had every right to be. "Taf could disable this rig for weeks without even trying, and you could do a lot worse without knowing one stupid thing about machines."
  • Saying this he hurried down the hill. We, having caught the horses and packed up the remainder of our meat, mounted and rode on. Both Charley and Dick declared they did not feel much the worse for their wounds, the blood they had lost probably preventing inflammation. Though the Indians could not see us, they must have discovered our trail; and they would soon ascertain, by the remains of our fire, that we were not far ahead. This might encourage them to pursue us; but our horses being better than theirs, we might still, should no accident happen, keep well ahead of them.
  • "And now the French use the same word for the greysuits who go into companies and fire people so the owners can make a profit. They're de-greasers too. An even worse connection. So my father had it changed to de Gresseur, two words, and a few letters further down the phone book." He looked at his watch. Quarter to nine. Beaumont was twenty minutes away. They weren't doing badly for time.
  • Even the tribesmen of the interior were highly dissatisfied. None had gained anything from the war except those who had taken an actual part in the capture of Berber, Khartoum, or other cities. These had obtained a considerable amount of plunder. But beyond this all were worse off than before. There was no longer any profitable employment for their camels for trade purposes, and the promises of the Mahdi had been altogether falsified. Many of the tribes on the other side of the river had gone down to fight under Osman Digma at Suakim, but instead of the promises of victory being fulfilled they had suffered terribly, had lost vast numbers of men, and Suakim was as far off being taken as ever. Berber itself, the great market and centre of trade of that part of the country, was, all said, like a dead city. The shops were closed, the traders had been either killed or fled, the markets were empty; the Mahdi's soldiers treated the inhabitants as slaves. The sheik satisfied himself that there was no rumour current of there being any white prisoners in the hands of the tribesmen.
  • Cecil came last. The severe mental conflict of the past night had told almost fatally on a frame already worn out by years of toil and sickness. His cheek was pale, his eye hollow, his step slow and faltering like one whose flame of life is burning very low. The pain at his heart, always worse in times of exhaustion, was sharp and piercing.
  • In the agony of his soul he could not see how his father had befriended him how he had saved him from a fate far worse than disinheritance. His contempt for the cruel coquette was not yet decided enough for this.
  • The Peridol library was supposed to have all kinds of interesting stuff. I could do worse than stopping in to ask the librarian. But then, that wasnt the only individual it might be useful to consult. The street wouldnt be the most likely place to find him, however. I put my head down and pushed forward.
  • Volumnia presses: "If it be honourable in your wars to seem the same as you are not,"—to employ a ruse, "when for your best ends you adapt your policy, how is it less or worse to hold counterfeiting to be as honourable in peace as in war, since it stands in like request to both?"
  • The old man told David to go to the helm. "And you other young master take my oar and pull with all your might, while I sets the sails," he added. A sprit-mainsail, much the worse for wear, and a little rag of a foresail were soon set. It was as much sail as the boat in the rising gale could carry, and away she flew seaward. The old man took the helm, and the boy, who had not spoken, laid in his oar, and facing forward, put his hand on the foresheet to be ready to go about when the word was given. The boat was somewhat old and battered, like its master,--the rigging especially seemed in a bad condition.
  • No sleep had fallen to Eustace's lot that night. Late as it was when they retired to rest, fatiguing and exciting as the events of the day had been, there was no sleep for him. Carhayes, exasperated by the wrongs and rough treatment he had received at the hands of his barbarous neighbours, had withdrawn in a humour that was truly fearful, exacting unceasing attention from his wife and rudely repulsing his cousin's offer to take Eanswyth's place, in order that the latter might take some much-needed rest. A proceeding which lashed Eustace into a white heat of silent fury, and in his own mind it is to be feared he defined the other as a selfish, inconsiderate, and utterly irredeemable brute. Which, after all, is mere human nature. It is always the other fellow who is rather worse than a fiend. Were we in his shoes we should be something a little higher than an angel. That of course.
  • He quickly got used to other people looking at him with suspicion, or simply making fun of him. It wasn't that much different, or worse, from the experiences in his youth when his face was covered with acne. Slowly he learned to manage his mobility problem - he worked out a monthly rate with the moving company. The situation was much worse when it came to his love life. Julia, his girlfriend, was already unhappy that his computer programs were more important to him than a woman, and now she couldn't stand how the chair's presence in bed made them a threesome.
  • Holli noted the expectation of his silence. She offered her explanation. "If Lief was attacked by a river rogue, he would have had no chance of survival on his own. That is a plain and simple fact. His only chance would have been my arrow. If he was attacked and I hit the rogue, he would have had a chance to escape. If my arrow missed, it might have distracted the creature. Again, Lief would have had a chance to escape. If my arrow hit Lief, it would be no worse than a rogue's teeth or claws."
  • To stand still seemed to be worse than going on, and taking it to his comfort that what one man could do another might, Don reached the corner, but hesitated again, for there seemed to be no foot-hold whatever. But as he hesitated a great brown hand came round, ready to grasp his firmly; and with this help he made the venture, pressing himself close against the rock and creeping on.
  • What was worse was the many creatures that had no care about the nature of the gas cloud. Ghost ships, the real sorts ran by powerful beings that had no need for breath or life, lay in wait amongst the Devil's Breath. A few others took advantage of the dangerous nature of both the inhabitants and the cloud and set up bases near it. Anyone seeking refuge near the Devil's Breath was, by their very nature, not someone Dexter wanted to run in to.
  • I don't, Dave answered. "I know how it hurts. I wouldn't see any midshipman here sent to Coventry for anything except positive and undeniable dishonor. Jetson hasn't been guilty of anything worse than a mean, quick temper and a fit of sulks afterwards. That's why, with my experience here at Annapolis, if Jetson is to be sent to Coventry, I decline to be bound by the class action."
  • "Hes almost worse than the son of Satan. He is Armond Salvitore, the gang leader for the Blood Legion Family. Im sure youve heard of them…"
  • I picked up my phone, marveling for a moment that something so small held so much information and power. But I hated to do that, to check up on him, about as much as he hated being checked up on. I could just casually call Zoe, I thought, then quickly thought better of itthat backhanded strategy was even worse.
  • I shall recover, said Will. "I have been in rather worse accidents. Take a look at this other dusty, weary specimen. What do you recommend?"
  • I'm lucky to escape with a bruise and the loss of my overcoat, he concluded. "It would have been ten times worse but for you fellows."
  • I never knew a man before with courage enough to kick in public on such subjects. As it was, the man said something so much worse that right there the front busted out of the tiger-cage and for a few brief moments we were given over to chaos.
  • My parents seem to reproduce like jack-rabbits. They produce a child about every eight years. I have two siblings that are younger than me, however, they do seem to be slowing down. I think this is because my mother has ditched the Catholic notion of birth control and started taking the pill. Heaven forbid she already married a Demon, how much worse could it get?
  • All this time the discipline was really very slack, and the men behaved to each other as they pleased, and never failed to neglect their duty whenever the mates' eyes were off them. Still they resented, notwithstanding, the treatment they received, growling fiercely, if not loudly, when the quality of their provisions had begun to fall off. At first the food had been pretty good, but it now became worse and worse, and the men swore that they would stand it no longer. At last, when some rancid pork had been served out with musty peas and weevilly biscuits, the men went aft in a body, headed by the boatswain, Sass Jowler, and Growles, who were deputed to be spokesmen, to the quarterdeck, where the captain was walking.
  • Petie made a motion as if to zip his lip and returned his attention to the game. He cheered when his teammate Jonesy struck out the next batter for the second out of the inning. Then, on the brink of escaping the inning without damage, the pitcher reverted to his wild form, walking a man to load the bases. Things got worse in the next at-bat when he flubbed an infield grounder, allowing a run to score.
  • They were eventually registered. The queue system itself worked upon a number between one and nine hundred and ninety-nine, and Jorden was given the number 237. Hura had last given audience to a squal farmer of Venice whose number had been 845. That made Jorden around four hundredth in line to be granted audience with Hura Ghiana. At least that was what he first suspected, but it was worse than that. Jorden was four hundredth in line to an interview with the office of the private secretary to Hura Ghiana, or in no line at all if he failed to inspire the secretary to the private secretary, as many did.
  • This threat almost caused Nat to collapse, and he felt even worse when Dave added that the scarfpin and the watch and chain were worth about one hundred dollars.
  • When Falk reached the holding pen a tragedy met his eyes. For as if the boy had not endured enough of this day now the night brought him new woes and terrors. A sight of carnage met his eyes. There lay Skel, dead beneath the moonlight but not alone, around him were four of the red-wolves, all bloody and torn to death themselves. Inside the holding pen was worse slaughter to be found, no red-wolves in there just his herd, every last member of his flock, threats torn out, meat consumed and blood painted on the rocks. Shocked all Falk could do was kneel and stare at the end of his families only means, and of Skel who had been a good and loyal guardian of the flock right up until his final bloody breath. A voice from the darkness pierced Falks melancholy.
  • Monsieur, continued Dantes, "I know it is not in your power to release me; but you can plead for me--you can have me tried--and that is all I ask. Let me know my crime, and the reason why I was condemned. Uncertainty is worse than all."
  • You are rightly punished, Master Miles, she cried; "for you had no business to anticipate surprises. They are vulgar things at best, and they are worse than that when they come from a distance of fifteen thousand miles--from a brother to a sister. Besides, you have surprised us sufficiently once, already, in connection with Miss Merton."
  • "Ill have no worse a name than Joves own page, and therefore look you call meGanymede.’ But what will you be called?"
  • "Let him alone," says Martius. "He did inform of the truth, but for our gentlemen! The common filethe plague!—tribunes for them!—a mouse neer shunned the cat as they did run from rascals worse than they!"
  • It was only later that Nicolette realized, with amazement, that if the fight had gone otherwise, she would now be a widow. The thought of such freedom sent a small thrill through her. Then she felt ashamed. How monstrous, to wish her husband, her children's father, dead. And how would she live, a widow with three daughters, dependent on Amalric's family? Would that be an escape, or a trap far worse than her marriage?
  • He tried his best not let the angst rupture his stern emotion. He continued, tried again to eep the ground's energy and make it his own. But he seemed to draw even less this time. A tiny fragment of hope assailed him, that he had not failed his King, but far within his soul, he cried out. Magick was his life, his entire being, and to have it taken away so easily was worse than death for him.
  • All right! I said, "I can wait;" and I walked away with the doctor, horribly annoyed at the waste of time, but wonderfully relieved at matters being no worse.
  • But there were worse things to face in the morning. Even though Diana postponed the evil hour by pretending she was ill and having her breakfast in bed, she could not stay in the cabin for ever. Once the first days of seasickness are over there is a rule against people stopping in their berths all day except under doctor's orders, and the stewardesses are very rigid in enforcing this. Besides, the Captain and first officer inspect cabins between ten and eleven A.M., and Diana had no particular yearning to see them again just then.
  • 'Oh, then, how would I know--' she answered. 'But it must be a wondherful long time ago, for the housekeeper was an ould woman, with a pipe in her mouth, and not a tooth left, and better nor eighty years ould when my mother was first married; and they said she was a rale buxom, fine-dressed woman when the ould Judge come to his end; an', indeed, my mother's not far from eighty years ould herself this day; and what made it worse for the unnatural ould villain, God rest his soul, to frighten the little girl out of the world the way he did, was what was mostly thought and believed by every one. My mother says how the poor little crathure was his own child; for he was by all accounts an ould villain every way, an' the hangin'est judge that ever was known in Ireland's ground.'
  • Gage was naturally the leader, being the worse of the two. He was a daring and reckless sort of fellow--one who would not stop at anything, and who would have recourse to almost any measure to gain his ends.
  • It was still less than twenty-four hours since Spencer's jump from the warehouse. His mind was in better shape than it had been for a while, thanks to the Professor, but his body felt worse than ever. He'd abused it more than the card, barely given it a moment's rest, and now it had reached its organic equivalent of a credit limit. In the mistaken belief that he'd had his full quota of excitement for the day, he switched the lights off and lay fully clothed in the early evening darkness, not caring whether sleep took him or not, which guaranteed, of course, that it did.
  • I've seen fires in the city, said Margery, "or, at least, houses after a fire. And it really looked worse than this, because there'd be a whole lot of things that had started to burn. Then the firemen came along, to put out the fire, and, though the things weren't really any good, they had to be carted away."
  • It's a dangerous calling, Darry; but, after all, no worse than that of a sailor. And while we risk our lives often, it is to try and save others. There's some satisfaction in that. But there sits Abner on that old keel of a wreck; suppose you go and tell him your story, and see what he says.
  • You are right to keep away from him, answered Pierre. "If he knew even that I spoke English he would treat me worse than he does. But you ask where are we going. I believe that we're bound out to the West Indies to take as many English merchant-vessels as we can find."
  • "We were out in the wet, soaking. When the French had gone to sleep, I walked to the f-fence which was round our pasture, and waited for the sentinel to pass. Then I crept under the fence, and crawled along till I got to the swamp, and went into the edge of it and walked toward the end of the breastwork. The f-fall of rain had made the swamp worse than usual.
  • I looked back at Leanne. "Don't tell me. I don't even want to know," I said. My imagination had conjured up a pretty gruesome image all on its own. Unfortunately, in this place the reality was probably even worse.
  • The men, of course, quickly discovered his superior education, but that did not in the least surprise them, it being extremely common for unfortunate people to descend by degrees to menial offices, if once they left the estate and homestead to which they naturally belonged. There as cadets, however humble, they were certain of outward respect: once outside the influence of the head of the house, and they were worse off than the lowest retainer. His fellows would have resented any show of pride, and would speedily have made his life intolerable. As he showed none, they almost petted him, but at the same time expected him to do more than his share of the work.
  • Sage words from a man who could pick his fists up faster than you could say "My ball." Lou Berman was quite the competitor. The only thing he hated worse than losing was playing with people who took losing lightly. Lou once said to his brother Abe, a notorious gracious loser, "If you're killing yourself for 20 minutes in the hot sun, you better have something to show for it. Besides, the wait for the next game is at least 45 minutes, and I didn't come here to sun bathe... I can do that at the beach!"
  • It seemed to fail him, however, at the river-bank; for, search as he might, he could not find a canoe nor a craft of any kind. Now, he was indeed in a quandary. It would be worse than useless to return to the Indian camp, that might at any moment be repeopled. He dared not go up the river, for that way lay the hosts of Pontiac; nor could he cross it and make his way to the fort. There was obviously but one course to pursue, which was to keep on down stream until he had put a safe distance between himself and the Indian camp, and then to wait for daylight by which to resume his search for a canoe.
  • "Naw--the boss is hot on discipline, but he'll enjoy the joke, seeing as how nobody except Diego is the worse for it. That mug is sure to have a sweet time explaining but youse two won't get strafed. The workin's is bad enough punishment. He'll let it go at that."
  • "There isn't any hay to hit, worse luck," said Bart, looking about him ruefully. "It's the stone floor for us to-night, all right. But it's warm and dry, and we'll make out with our blankets. It'll beat traveling around in the snow all night, any way."
  • It all comes from training, concluded our friend, as he attempted to catch a switch which swung back and struck him across the face; "if I was alone, it would take me twice as long as it takes them, and then I would fare worse than they do."
  • I'm afraid that wouldn't work, boys, he said presently. "We would only be caught at it and all tried for spies, and maybe find ourselves in a worse predicament than we now are. Perhaps the German officer will listen to reason when he returns."
  • Relax, what could go wrong? If worse comes to worse and you're injured by attack ads or something, there'll be enough brain tissue and blubber left over so your family--should you have one--can extract your DNA and clone you--should they wish to.
  • "I can relate to that. It was just me and my mom growing up most of the time," Emma adds, "Before she got her job at Terring we were doing pretty badly for a while, and my mom was working like three different jobs throughout the week. Looking back, though, I had a lot of time to work on my art and I think that I would be worse off without that time alone. Strange that, during the time, I was always like, ‘I wish mom were around more,’ you know? Like, I can even remember being angry at her sometimes for always being gone."
  • This whole morning was happening too strangely and too quickly for Dave to really process. Belinda had never been this chipper after a big night. In fact, she tended to be worse than he was, and she snored so loudly that he usually staggered off to the spare room at some point in the early hours, so he was used to waking up alone with a hangover, and then going downstairs to wrestle with the analgesics and coffee on his own. Belinda would usually put in an appearance around midday, and she would expect coffee to be ready for her. Liza, meanwhile, didnt even look a little bit hung over, and she sounded disgustingly chipper.
  • I should like to give you Cameron if it were possible, said the Commissioner, "but this railroad business is one of great difficulty and Superintendent Strong is not the man to ask for assistance unless he is in pretty desperate straits. An unintelligent or reckless man would be worse than useless."
  • For a second it felt as though my heart had stopped beating. I'd never done worse than a 'B' on any assignment or test since I'd finished up Kindergarten. I couldn't take this home and show my mom. Head in the clouds half of the time or not, she'd still freak out. Heck, I was already freaking out enough for the both of us. This was going on my high school transcript. The one colleges would be looking at. The one that might have gotten me a scholarship. Only now I'd be lucky to pull a 'C' out of the class.
  • Far worse than the controlled, steady drinker is the solitary drinker, and it was this that Daylight was developing into. He rarely drank sociably any more, but in his own room, by himself. Returning weary from each day's unremitting effort, he drugged himself to sleep, knowing that on the morrow he would rise up with a dry and burning mouth and repeat the program.
  • Incredibly dumb mistake on my part while creating 2.3 which led to problems even worse than those in 2.2 is now fixed.
  • Nicholas' position became worse and worse. The idea of putting something aside out of his salary proved a dream. Not only did he not save anything, but to comply with his mother's demands he even incurred some small debts. He could see no way out of this situation. The idea of marrying some rich woman, which was suggested to him by his female relations, was repugnant to him. The other way out--his mother's death--never entered his head. He wished for nothing and hoped for nothing, and deep in his heart experienced a gloomy and stern satisfaction in an uncomplaining endurance of his position. He tried to avoid his old acquaintances with their commiseration and offensive offers of assistance; he avoided all distraction and recreation, and even at home did nothing but play cards with his mother, pace silently up and down the room, and smoke one pipe after another. He seemed carefully to cherish within himself the gloomy mood which alone enabled him to endure his position.
  • You will ask me, doubtless, and it is natural to do so, why I selected so green a sprig of nobility for my paramour, when my own experience so strongly dissuaded from such a choice. But, besides that Don Lewis had neither father nor mother, and was already in possession of his fortune, you are to know that there is no danger of disagreeable consequences attaching to any but girls in a servile condition of life, or those unfortunate loose fish who are game for every sportsman. Ladies of our profession are privileged persons; we let off our charms like a rocket, and are not answerable for the damage where they fall; so much the worse for those families whose heirs we set in a blaze.
  • Nellise had another dose of her tonic ready in case they needed it, but Aiden, for one, was reluctant to take any more, for the after-effects were far worse than the tiredness he felt in his bones. The moon was waxing that evening, shedding enough light to travel by, especially with the reflection off the snow. Colt was concerned that it would give away their approach, but they didn't really have much choice.
  • "You took away my manhood," he said fearfully. "You shriveled me. You cast a spell on me. You are worse than a damned heretic preacher. You are a witch!"
  • The Winters' family was neither hunter nor vampire, but they did consider themselves protectors of a sort. Valerie thought about so many things on her way to the park, trailing Brandon and the rest of the procession at a safe distance. She had never fully tested her skills against anyone other than her family and the aged oak tree in her backyard, which definitely was the worse for the wear.
  • Miss Candida, after all of your thoughtfulness and dedication to this mission, it is with sincere regret that neither the Argonauts nor I are able to divulge the exact coordinates of Argo, or the location of its principal civilization. To recount, our objectives were to discover if Argo was indeed the world of paradise we have sought. Had this mission been one of conquest or plunder, Argo would have fed our lusts with a plentiful bounty. In fact, we have found riches and fantastic wonders that a mere conveyance of words and images could not describe. Telling you of our inability to provide the location of paradise is rightfully unjust in the face of your generous funding toward this mission. It is understandably worse to patronize you with further descriptions of this wonderland, but it is necessary to build credibility.
  • But this was only one of Sturk's explosions, and he and little Toole parted no better and no worse friends than usual, in ten minutes more at the latter's door-step.
  • "It is all, all her fault," he said to himself; "but what of that? Why did I bind myself to her? Why did I say 'Je vous aime'* to her, which was a lie, and worse than a lie? I am guilty and must endure... what? A slur on my name? A misfortune for life? Oh, that's nonsense," he thought. "The slur on my name and honor--that's all apart from myself.
  • Hasna took Eddy's $50 note, handed over the correct change and turned to make sure that her husband was aware of the details. She knew of course that he would be well on the way to completing the order and proceeded to get five paper bags from under the counter. She made sure not to make eye contact with the group in front of her, conscious that it could be taken as an antagonistic gesture or even worse as an intimate signal that was sure to be misinterpreted. As it was she was not given a choice.
  • Whether Paul were a greater ass than most imaginative boys of his years may be a question, but he was as serious about this matter as if he had been eight-and-twenty, and when he reached home he had been rejected and had died of it, and accepted and married many times over. He got into his working clothes after a thorough rub down, and, except for a touch of languor, was none the worse for his morning's adventure. Armstrong was out on business for the day, and in the drowsy afternoon Paul laid an old press blanket on the office floor, took a ream of printing-paper for a pillow, and slept like a top. This made an end of languor, and when the hour of freedom struck, he ran down the weedy garden and raced upstairs to his attic-chamber, and there attired himself in his best. These were days when the cheapest of cheap dandies wore paper cuffs and collars, then newly discovered, and Paul made himself trim in this inexpensive fashion. He had spent half an hour at his ablutions before leaving the office, and walked towards his rendezvous all neat and shining.
  • Foster thanked him and examined the map. It was clearly drawn and showed the height and natural features of the country, which was obviously rough. The path marked out led over the Border hills, dipped into winding valleys, and skirted moorland lakes. It seemed to draw him as he studied it, for the wilderness has charm, and the drove road ran through heathy wastes far from the smoke of factories and mining towns. Well, he was ready to cross the bleak uplands, without troubling much about the mist and rain, for he had faced worse winters than any Scotland knew, but he reflected with grim amusement that Daly would find the traveling rough if he got on his trail.
  • What's the trouble, M'Laughlan? asked Gentleman Once, turning to Peter. "No trouble at all, Gentleman Once," said Peter; "thank you all the same. I've managed worse men than our friend Thomas. Now, Thomas, don't you think it would pay you best to hand over the key of the harness-room and have done with this nonsense? I'm a patient man--a very patient man--but I've not always been so, and the old blood comes up sometimes, you know."
  • However, all of them soon realized that Paul had done a clever thing when he thus coaxed the two clumsy members of the patrol to drop out of line, and allow those better fitted for coping with the difficulties of the slippery path to go forward; because it steadily grew worse instead of better, and neither Eben nor Noodles could have long continued.
  • The school most definitely wasn't in the pretty, green part of the region. Every step seemed to kick up a miniature cloud of fine, red dust that drifted into my lungs and slowly coated my clothes. The dust would've been plenty bad all by itself, but the heat made things even worse.
  • I think he was right, exclaimed Santiago, when we reached the spot. "This is a far worse venture than climbing to the cavern by the rope."
  • "Yes; it will be a piece of work to scramble through those branches; and then comes the abattis of stakes; and then a wall eight feet high. Montcalm knows his business, Ben. I wish he were on our side. We shall have no easy task. It looks tough to-day, and it will be worse to-morrow."
  • It is worse than that, Roland. They are torturing her. They have been torturing her for weeks, and they will torture her right up to the day they burn her.
  • A brief minute later the flag-ship, still grappling with her quarry, was aboard the other three craft, and the confusion became worse confounded.
  • Brad's heart melted as it had dozens of times before. He knew the smile on his face was big and stupid. He felt self conscious and at the mercy of the events about to unfold here on the granite steps. worse yet he was at a complete loss for words. The smile stayed glued to his lips and his words refused to come out. The terrible thoughts which were crawling through his mind kept trying to articulate themselves in place of the words he wanted to say.
