  • I 'd saved up a couple of dollars, and I kept traveling back, deeper and deeper into the country, looking for work, and buying bread and cheese and such things from the storekeepers. I tell you, it was cold, nights, sleeping out without blankets, and I was always glad when morning came. But worse than that was the way everybody looked on me. They were all suspicious, and not a bit afraid to show it, and sometimes they 'd set their dogs on me and tell me to get along. Seemed as though there was n't any place for me on the land. Then my money gave out, and just about the time I was good and hungry I got captured.
  • "To hold you in perpetual amity," says the admiral, looking from one to the other, "to make you brothers, and to knit your hearts with an unslipping knot, may Antony take Octavia to be his wife!—whose beauty claims no worse a husband than the best of men, whose virtue and whose general graces speak that which none else can utter!
  • Phlinn wasnt lily-livered, not really; what he was at the moment was even worse - fatalistic. Their earlier discussion on the way over, between Maxs comments on which part of his body the obnoxious armor was chafing now, had illuminated their best guess at the most likely medium the Scapulas intervention would take. Since it involved a direct strike through Phlinn himself, you couldnt very well accuse Phlinn of personal cowardice; foolhardiness, on the other hand, was present as a matter of definition. And to rely on Maxs ability to think up a counter on the fly and deploy it in what might be a window of milliseconds ... Well, Phlinns fatalism might be understandable, but that still didnt make it healthy. "How much do you know about the basic mechanics of the Knitting?" Max had asked him.
  • Maybe not, but I figger it'll do you good. Give you an appetite for dinner, and Delton laughed harshly. "Where I come from we treat 'em worse than that."
  • A poor excuse is worse than none, answered Dave, grimly. "You were going to put salt in the cream and spoil it, you needn't deny it."
  • One head perked up ever so slightly as if the man might say something. Had he been able to develop a coherent thought, he might have argued that the women in this neighborhood used worse language than any hard-drinking working man, and children rarely came to Drunken Scum Street. Well, maybe it was a little more than rarely, but still. Okay, sometimes kids came to buy beer or smoke-weed for lazy parents or for themselves to use or trade, but those children were already so corrupted by woeful home lives that a few rude words in the air would hardly affect them. Or at least the drunk could have argued in that manner.
  • She walked up the stairs gingerly. The air was even worse on the second floor of the house. One of the stairs gave way beneath her foot, and she nearly screamed. She jumped up a step and struggled to calm herself before going on.
  • Waseche Bill stared at the boy in astonishment: "Beyond the Mackenzie!" he exclaimed, then his voice dropped into a tone softly sarcastic. "Yo' ought to have a right pleasant trip. It ain't oveh a thousan' miles oah so, an' only about fifteen er twenty mountain ranges to cross. The trail ought to be right nice an' smooth an' plain marked. An' when yo' git theah yo' sho' ought to enjoy yo'self. I caint' think of no place in the world a man had ought to keep away from worse than right theah. Why, son, they tell me that beyond the Mackenzie they ain't nothin'!"
  • Breaking the window would create a diversion, of course, but from what? The couple checked into the hotel using fake names so the police wouldnt have been able to find them. The husband might have someone else after him; someone far worse than the police and the broken window was an attempt to fake their deaths.
  • The groom looked at him. "I ask thee to reveal nothing," he said significantly. "I have but two eyes, and I must use them, as I said, to see, all that goeth on before me. Do thou but ask Eric there to show thee the way out of the town before the curfew ring. He hateth king's men worse even than I. My master will summon me to the house shortly, according to his custom. That will be the time for thee, for I can in no wise see what goeth on behind my back, nor did I promise to do so."
  • He's driving. He can't do anything to me. Anna felt silly, reassuring something in her mind, but it seemed necessary. That residual surge of furious emotion that came calling when the whistling man thought she was being hurt was almost worse than Dan smacking her in the face. Nothing at all untilhe stops driving
  • "No; you young men, if ye were a bit more steady and less conceited, ye'd be nothing the worse o't," said the gray man sternly.
  • If she were alone, shed be halfway across the parking lot by now. The gravel would be kicking up by her feet as she escaped the range of the guns. She wouldnt slow down though and soon the bar would be left behind in the dark. She cant leave them though. Theyd be even worse off than the sticky situation they are in now.
  • Yes, I'm glad I stopped you, and you'll be glad too, before long, declared Nat firmly. "Why, you're no worse off than you were before. You had a lot of money, and you had a good time with it. Now you'll have to go back to work again."
  • This is never going to work, is it?' she sighed. ‘Why don't you just make three small wishes? Silly stuff that doesn't really matter; otherwise we're going to be stuck with each other for the rest of your life. We could end up hating each other. What catch could possibly be worse than that?'
  • Feeling sick with fear, less for herself than for Roland and his household, Diane nonetheless knew she had to plunge on. Nothing she said now could make things worse.
  • If Jessica hadn't grudgingly complimented me on just how good my hair looked, I might have suspected Jasmin was trying to purposefully make me look worse than the other girls. Dominic and Rachel had to tell me I looked good, that was an unwritten girl-rule regardless of what species you were. Jessica had no such imperative, so I was forced to conclude Jasmin had done the best she could considering what she had to work with, and resigned myself to being the homely one in the group.
  • 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.
  • Remember this, he said with the air of one who knows it all, "it isn't every bullet that finds its billet, an' the toughest time is just now, when we're waitin' for what all hands know is bound to come. Think of the folks at Benedict, an' kind'er figger out what they'd say if you went home after showin' yourselves cowards under fire. There are worse things than bein' killed or wounded in battle, an' the hardest is to live knowin' every youngster on the street has the right to call you a white-livered sneak what ran away when danger came. Stand here behind Joshua Barney, for I warrant he won't give you a chance to get in front of him, an' you'll be doin' about right."
  • I am glad of one thing, put in the governor, half in a congratulating way, and half inquiringly; "and that is, that the Rev. Mr. Hornblower takes so well with the people. Everybody appears to be satisfied with his ministrations; and I do not see that any one is the worse for them, although he is an Episcopalian."
  • He varnished the work of art with a genuine relish, and, the process being over, he and Paul returned to the office, where signs of life were beginning to show themselves. The flare of some thirty or forty lighted gas-brackets made an inroad on the fog, and knots of men were laughing and talking. It very soon became clear to Paul's intelligence that the daily work and conversation of his new companions were not in any marked degree ruled or moulded by the influence of that religious literature with which they helped to furnish the world. They were neither better nor worse than the average British workman; but they certainly cursed a good deal, and a stiffish breeze of indecency blew through all their speech.
  • Cranial nerve palsy had significantly worse prognosis than those with bony erosion alone.
  • Just sit still now, he growled. "If you don't you'll be the worse off. You needn't be alarmed about your friends. I reckon they'll be along this way purty soon."
  • Yis, sor, I'll till yer honner how it wor, sure, explained the wily fellow, who could tell from the doctor's change of tone that his offence was condoned and that he need fear no worse consequences now than one of his usual lectures, which only went in at one ear and out at the other, as Dr Nettleby himself said. "I wint over to the rendywoo last noight be the cap'en's orders, sor, fur to say if there wor any more hands awaitin' to jine. Faith an' there I mates me wife's first cousin, Bridget O'Halloran, as is merried now be the same token to Sargint Lintstock."
  • I did not forget, as a supposed immediate means of relief, that my pamphlet against the Earl and the Bishop was printed; and I thought the revenge more than justifiable: it was a necessary vindication of my own honour and claims. I was indeed forty pounds in debt: twenty to Belmont; and twenty more to I knew not whom: though I suspected, and partly hoped partly feared, it was Olivia. I hoped it, because it might be affection. I feared it, lest it should be nothing more than pity; for one whom she had known in her childhood, but whom, now he was a man, she might compassionate; but must contemn. To have been obliged even to Olivia, on these terms, was worse than starving. Such were my meditations through the day; which was a little advanced when I left Bath.
  • 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.
  • I turned in early that night, and checked all the places that I knew my parents had placed wards to make sure they were there before getting in bed. I wasn't able to sleep soundly, instead waking up three or four times after having nightmares about everything going dark, then a shrill, high-pitched laughter coming from everywhere around me. The specifics of the dreams changed each time, but by the time I woke up, I had forgotten the details. The fifth time this happened I woke up and started crying. I was scared, but not because of the dreams. I was terrified that I could only have nightmares when I fell asleep, and what's worse was that every time I woke up I felt awful, like I was unclean, sick and empty. I felt like I had done something really awful, and the part of me that knew how to make things right was gone.
  • James was clutching his head because Erwan was doing his nut in with his frenzied debating. The girl soon left and Erwan swung haphazardly into another seat, much the worse for wear, stars spinning around his inebriated skull.
  • Looking back after a time, he saw the crest of the moor run up behind them against the sky, and the next ravine they came to was awkward to climb down, while he was wet to the knees when he crossed the burn. A mile farther on, he reached another that was worse and they had to work back along the crumbling sides of its channel to find a place to cross. After this their progress was marked by erratic curves, and Foster was soon splashed with black peat-mud and green slime. By and by they came to a broad level, shut in by a ridge on its other side, and picked their way carefully between clumps of rushes and curious round holes filled with dark-colored water. The ground was very soft and walking became a toil, but Pete held steadily to his winding course and Foster, although getting tired, did not lag behind.
  • It's not me that lost her, God knows; but that's what the owners will say, and that's what everybody will say--if they don't say something worse when the truth comes out. 'Riggs gone, and his ship gone,' they'll say, and then others will wink and whisper: 'And you know the Kut Sang was ballasted with gold,' and who's to know I never stole it?
  • When he had gone Jane Clayton sank down upon her berth in utter bewilderment. What was she to do? Suspicions as to the intentions of the Swede swarmed her brain. Might she not be infinitely worse off if she gave herself into his power than she already was?
  • Berley did not stay there. As Red went skulking down that trail in the dark, she followed. She was afraid, but being in the darkness alone with prowlers about, who might carry her away, was worse than being on the firing line.
  • As before he suffered the moment of ill, the lack of breath, and the touch of fire. It was worse than it had been on the previous occasion, though brief, Jorden sitting to lessen the effects. He swore then to never return, regardless how severe the symptoms might become.
  • "There now, you wish to liberate your serfs," he continued; "that is a very good thing, but not for you--I don't suppose you ever had anyone flogged or sent to Siberia--and still less for your serfs. If they are beaten, flogged, or sent to Siberia, I don't suppose they are any the worse off. In Siberia they lead the same animal life, and the stripes on their bodies heal, and they are happy as before. But it is a good thing for proprietors who perish morally, bring remorse upon themselves, stifle this remorse and grow callous, as a result of being able to inflict punishments justly and unjustly. It is those people I pity, and for their sake I should like to liberate the serfs. You may not have seen, but I have seen, how good men brought up in those traditions of unlimited power, in time when they grow more irritable, become cruel and harsh, are conscious of it, but cannot restrain themselves and grow more and more miserable."
  • "They durst not dot," says Lear, almost to himself. "They could not, would not dot—’tis worse than murder, to do such violent outrage against respect!
  • "The journey was worse than the first one. It took longer and more people died. It didnt seem to matter anymore. When we arrived and were being taken off the trucks I saw my father again. The men had been brought on the same train, you see, but kept together in different trucks at the back. Now they were all walking passed us as we waited by the train. He was very thin, I almost didnt recognise him. But when my mother called to him he looked at us and recognised us straight away. I called to him too, and more of the others began to call out. He shouted back. He ran towards us with more of the men doing the same. Some of the women and their children ran to them in greeting. I ran with my mother. Then the soldiers shot at us. They shot my father. My mother pushed me away and they shot her too. I ran under the train. Everyone was running around. The Germans were shooting everyone, even people on the ground on their knees. I ran off. Some of the children ran with me. They shot them too. We were the only ones who got away."
  • Why, I trust that they fancied the brig in a much worse condition than she appears to us to be, and that they quitted her in the boats, or some other craft which was fortunately passing soon after the catastrophe. But as I spoke, our eyes fell on the shattered boats, and I recollected that the former hypothesis could not be correct. "They must have fallen in with some vessel," I remarked to Hearty. "The ladies were happily conveyed on board her, but why the crew deserted the ship I cannot say."
  • This they did, and after a close examination both declared that beyond a severe wrench and some bruises there was nothing the matter. Any ordinary lad would have felt grateful for this intelligence. Percy only growled the more, declaring that if his leg was not broken it felt worse than such a condition would bring.
  • Mention of the dreaded name 'Doctor Wacker' was like an invocation of evil. It was even worse than summoning Nurse Jane.
  • "Myn! No! Not now!" Myranda called out uselessly. She hurried after her friend, following the deep claw marks left by her sprint. This could not have happened at a worse time.
  • 'Foolish fellow!' he exclaimed. 'If the lad was innocent he should have stayed to see the thing out; he has only made things a dozen times worse for himself by doing this.'
  • "No, worse luck," replied Sandy; "it was dark, and when they got close the critter made off before they had a chance at a shot. But, say!" he exclaimed, "the storm's over an' the sun is out, an' here we are loafin' in here yet. Vamoose, boys! scatter!" and they all piled out into a fresh and made-over world. Everything was washed clean by the torrential rainfall, and, strange to say, comparatively little damage had been done by the terrific wind. The ranchmen set about repairing whatever had been destroyed, and the three comrades walked toward the ranchhouse, discussing Sandy's tale as they went.
  • Esu said, "If we don't, he'll find someone worse to serve him. When the war's won, we'll convince Yahu to follow Elah's way. If not, we must kill him."
  • But, my dear fellow, is it not possible that the same squall which struck this vessel and reduced her to a wreck may have struck the pirate, and sent her and all on board to the bottom? or can you answer me that this is not possible? Still it may have preserved them from a worse fate. Oh, horrible, horrible!
  • Link Merwell showed signs of both suffering and dissipation. His face was thin and careworn, and his eyes had an uncertain, restless look in them. He had on a business suit much the worse for wear, and his tan shoes were worn down at the heels. Evidently he had not fared well since Dave had met him in the West.
  • These effects are made worse by exposures greater than one hour and may lead to airway inflammation which may produce short term breathing difficulties.
  • Savages! he echoed, ironically. "So you are astonished, Professor, at having set foot on a strange land and finding savages? Savages! where are there not any? Besides, are they worse than others, these whom you call savages?"
  • The situation was trying. If I discontinued the archery practice and the teaching of "civilized arts," my Links would never be fit for my "army;" if, on the contrary, I proceeded to place the fellows on a fighting equality with myself, they would all be the worse as enemies, if ever a genuine rebellion should occur. Having thought and thought till my brain was weary, I decided to take my chances on having them understand the bow, trusting that something might happen which would make us all united. I reasoned that if our foe, the Blacks, should swoop upon us again, we might all be killed, if they found us unprepared, and then all schemes of escape would be equally vain.
  • She glanced at Ghek. What would the spiderman do in this emergency? She saw him crawl to his rykor and attach himself. Then he arose, the beautiful body once again animated and alert. She thought that the creature was preparing for flight. Well, it made little difference to her. Against such as were streaming up the hill toward them a single mediocre swordsman such as Ghek was worse than no defense at all.
  • The bidarka turned broadside and the ripple of surf threatened to swamp it, only a naked boy ran into the water and pulled the bow high up on the sand. The man stood up and sent a questing glance along the line of villagers. A rainbow sweater, dirty and the worse for wear, clung loosely to his broad shoulders, and a red cotton handkerchief was knotted in sailor fashion about his throat.
  • How much more could I endure? I didn't know, but it couldn't be much. It felt so good and magical the morning we first set out. I had no idea then I'd be fighting hopelessness more than the Dark Robes. This blasted rain! It made things worse.
  • I don't see why she does not come to me, if she is no worse than you say she is, the voice said. "Really, Sylvia, I think it would be better for you or some one to tell me the truth."
  • "Youve always been frustrated that I make you live your age, but you gotta understand something. I cant allow you to test out of high school although you couldve accomplished that at the age of ten. I knew if I had allowed you to reach that potential, the state wouldve taken you away to a foster home or worse some secret underground government facility for mentally brilliant kids…"
  • "It would go a heap worse with him than it did with Captain Jefferson," said the Corporal, "for he's got more ahead of him and he comes from better stock. Why, his family is way up! They're all soldiers, and they're strong at headquarters; they're mighty proud, too, and they wouldn't stand for his doing such a thing, even if he wanted to. But he wouldn't try; he's got too much sense, and loves the army too well for that. No, sir! He'll go a long ways, that boy will, if he's let alone."
  • Now, Jack, you had best lash yourself to something or you will be swept overboard; we shall have it a lot worse than this presently. Now, Tom, before we get well away again get the last reef in the mainsail, then we can haul the tack down taut again; the sail will stand much better so, and we shall want to keep her all to windward if she is to go through the swashway.
  • He was out of his seat and halfway to the door by the time I'd even realized the bell had rung to dismiss us. Spanish was both better and worse. Better because without Alec sitting six feet away from me I was able to kind of think about something other than him, worse because we had a pop quiz and I barely placed in the A- range despite having spent a fair amount of time on my vocabulary. Math was plain and simply burning up too much time. Something needed to change because my only hope of going to college was to get a scholarship, or load up on student loans, and I had no desire to graduate sixty-thousand dollars in debt and spend the next fifteen years trying to pay it all off.
  • Billy bones, a retired seaman ( or worse ), comes to live at the admiral benbow inn.
  • "One of their most potent and subtle weapons are the movies. Perhaps like many of our brothers who think themselves sophisticated you consider movies as harmless entertainment, but they are not. Cannot you not see? Their movies undermine the very fabric of our culture because they usurp the prerogatives of Allah. They create an illusion of life and reality that seems even more real than life itself. How can such blasphemy be permitted? And now, not only are they making movies, but they are making one on our own soil? What next? But that is not all, there is something a thousand times worse that I almost dare not tell you."
  • The way was safe enough, save here and there, when Melchior led them along a ledge from which the slope down was so steep as to be almost a precipice. But here he always paused and drew in the rope till those in his charge were close up to him; and on one of these occasions he patted Saxe on the shoulder, for there had been a narrow piece of about fifty feet in length that looked worse at a glance back than in the passing.
  • Sapyeha would make a saint fall, he explained next day to his friends; "and what must happen to me, who have been always fond of sport? Besides, he has some kind of special passion to force goblets on me, and I, not wishing to seem rude, yield to his pressing; this I do to avoid offending the host. But I have made a vow that at the coming Advent I shall have my back well covered with discipline (stripes), for I understand myself that this yielding cannot remain without penance; but now I have to keep on good terms with him, out of fear that I might fall into worse company and indulge myself altogether."
  • That old place will be no end of a game when we have cleared it out, mused the boy, as he went slowly down the hill. "It will be a lot of trouble though, and we shall have to sweep and clear away the dust and cobwebs too. I wish we could set Samson and Nat to work, only we can't do that, because, if we did, it wouldn't be a secret place; and, besides, they would do nothing but quarrel, and get no work done. Wonder whether brothers always do quarrel. Why, they're worse than Scar and I are, though we do have a pretty good row sometimes."
  • A shout of laughter came from one of the open doorways beyond which men were staking their money, and a voice, somewhat the worse for a liquid not water, sang:
  • We made a run for the slough, which was only a short distance off, and succeeded in safely reaching it, bringing with us the wounded man. The bank proved to be a very effective breastwork, affording us good protection. We had been there but a short time when Frank McCarthy, seeing that the longer we were corralled the worse it would be for us, said,
  • And yet there are times when all obligations of this sort are weakened. When friends die, this is recognized. Why should it not be so when they are in danger of a fate worse than death?
  • "Wherefore rejoice?" demands Murellus, red-faced. "What conquests brings he home? What tributaries follow him to Rome to grace in captive bonds his chariot-wheels?" He shouts at the people on the street: "You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things!" The younger men laugh at the graybeard: stones is a term for testicles, thing for penis. "O you hard hearts, you cruel men of Rome, knew you not Pompey?
  • Not that he had relinquished hope. He had lost in the open attack, but he still had the resource of a siege. Soon or late he was sure his victim would have to descend. His victory was only deferred. Back and forth and round and round the tree he paced, growling fiercely, at times rearing himself on his hind legs and tearing savagely at the trunk. His open jaws, slavering with foam and showing his great yellow fangs, were full of fearful menace, and his wicked eyes glowed like a furnace. His temper, evil at all times, had been rendered worse by the fury of the chase and disappointment at his failure. Baffled rage bristled in every hair of his shaggy hide. At that moment he would have charged a regiment.
  • "But we don't know that the damage to other towns was any worse than it was here," Cofort insisted. "If so, we will have paid a delver for nothing."
  • Oh, there can't be any doubt of that. This girl is developing into one of the most expert crooks in the country. For her own good it's a blessing that I've caught her before she gets any worse.
  • "No, lad, the risk is too great. Ye'd be in worse plight than before, if they caught ye, and with a score of the ruffians searching the island over, ye'd run too long a chance. Better be satisfied with what's here, and stay where we can at least defend ourselves."
  • Their Soviet cast-offs looked in worse shape than his. The group moved sloppily. All but one. The saliva in Misha's mouth dried. That proud soldier, the one moving with assuredness, discipline, leading the men, that had been Misha's neighbor in Stepanakert: Ali!
  • This Cardan was a member of Parley, having bribed and forced his way in, many electors seeing it to their advantage to back him. He went to Redhills twice per annum with the others, and over some few years gained much influence there. The new street was his corrupt bounty for years of political efforteffort expended largely, I suspect, in his own interest. worse yet, to pay itself for the cost of street-building, the government condemned wide tracts of land parallel to the new pavement in order to sell them back to the owners or others. Even beside Cardan's path this held true.
  • But nothing worse was in view than two or three of the scattered farms of the open veldt, and in the distance a dark indistinct patch which appeared to be a herd of grazing cattle, but so distant that neither could be sure.
  • Dan Davis' heroic effort had deflected the torpedo slightly from its course, just enough to cause it to clear the little steamer, thus saving the lives of at least part of the crew aboard her. A life ring at the end of a rope brought Dan out of the salt water not much the worse for his thrilling experience.
  • "Isn't that loading more guilt on a person who is already in bad shape? It could cause them to feel even worse than they did before, especially if they continue to make the same mistakes over and over again. Wouldnt it be better for them to find Gods treasure so that they can be lifted up and forget those old problems?"
  • The newly revealed Zhardann was seated at ease with his arms folded across his chest, apparently none the worse for the experience and rather pleased with himself into the bargain. "Guess whos behind this New Dawn business?" he said to Jill.
  • "Suppose that in this instance your distinction won't work? Look here," he went on, as I pushed back my chair impatiently, "I have one truth more for you. I swear I believe that what we have hated, we two, is not each other, but ourselves or our own likeness. I swear I believe we two have so shared natures in hate that no power can untwist and separate them to render each his own. But I swear also I believe that if you lift that revolver to kill, you will take aim, not at me, but by instinct at a worse enemy--yourself, vital in my heart."
  • And so it was that she was assigned low end work and bottom of the barrel jobs. Burglary follow-ups, shoplifting statistics, suicides. Her requests for transfer to another station were taking their own sweet time, but there was no running from a bad reputation in the job. A bad name had a way of following you wherever you ended up. All this because she slept with a work colleague. And to make matters worse she had slept with her boss, Detective Inspector Phillips.
  • I should never have jogged to someone else's Ipod. The songs didn't take my mind off my sore knees or the years sneaking by. To make matters worse today was the day that I had planned on altering my route to include a new hill. Being out of shape I tend to stick to the kind of flat where you can see an anthill coming 20 yards away.
  • "I've thought a lot about it lately," he said. "It hasn't occurred to me to be afraid of how it may turn out. Why borrow trouble when there's plenty at hand? I don't care whether you love me or not, right now. You couldn't possibly be any worse off as my wife, could you?"
  • They'd heard everything. It was terrible, the way her own mind had no privacy. Like she was naked on a dissection slab. She tried to pull herself together and think of something, though her head hurt worse than ever.
  • The temple held no other features of immediate interest. Under the circumstances, escape was looking like a good idea, but with all the guards around and the manacles on his hands now holding him to the wall, simple escape would be difficult. He did have an ace-in-the-hole. Unfortunately, the ace was booby-trapped, courtesy of his ever-popular curse, and with the treatment hed already received it was liable to leave him in much worse shape than if he merely tried to roll with events. Shaa looked around again, hoping for new inspiration.
  • Jorden stood slowly, his back aching. "I'm not sure I've had any, but if these quakes get any worse then I might get to apply for one."
  • The next hill they came to was a still worse one. When they were half-way down the leader came to a sudden halt; Grant's cariole almost ran over it; Sam and the luggage-cart pulled up just in time, and so, from front to rear, they were jammed up into the smallest space they could occupy.
  • Oh! aim at their legs, like I'll do, returned Giraffe. "We'd hadn't ought to do anything worse than that. But mark me, Bumpus, when they see we mean business, they won't dare come far."
  • "Though those that are betrayed do feel the treason sharply, yet the traitor stands in worse case of woe! Thou, Posthumus, thou that didst stir up my disobediencegainst my father the king, and made me put into contempt the suits of princely fellows, shalt find it is no common act"—a dig at his not being a noble—"of passage toward the hereafter, but a strain of rareness!
  • 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."
  • "That's right," put in Bob himself, who had overheard the conversation. "The Sky-Bird isn't what she was before that rock went through her, but if nothing worse happens we'll reach Singapore, though it will probably be somewhat later than our sweet friends in the other plane."
  • It's getting worse and worse. By and by there won't be any managing these rascals at all, grumbled the assistant teacher. "Some of them ought to have their necks wrung!"
  • Thanks to the traveller's fifty-seven francs, Thenardier had been able to avoid a protest and to honor his signature. On the following month they were again in need of money. The woman took Cosette's outfit to Paris, and pawned it at the pawnbroker's for sixty francs. As soon as that sum was spent, the Thenardiers grew accustomed to look on the little girl merely as a child whom they were caring for out of charity; and they treated her accordingly. As she had no longer any clothes, they dressed her in the cast-off petticoats and chemises of the Thenardier brats; that is to say, in rags. They fed her on what all the rest had left--a little better than the dog, a little worse than the cat. Moreover, the cat and the dog were her habitual table-companions; Cosette ate with them under the table, from a wooden bowl similar to theirs.
  • Then he stopped as his eye roved again to the stone pillar. Up on top of that white shaft of stone something moved! What he had thought at first glance were mere hummocks of rock or dusty bowlders, proved to be three human figures! How they had been put there, or how long they had been there, he could not imagine. One of them was smaller than the other two, a pathetic little heap of misery--it was without doubt the girl, and the other two were Neyani and his wife! the boy realized with a sudden shock. They were isolated, starving--and worse than that--oh, much worse--dying of thirst! That lonely rock,--under the pitiless desert sun!
  • His head snapped up, his eyes intense. "Cant I? Well, I do, Teleri. But its even worse than that. You see, I had another great plan when I was at Llanlleyn. I wanted Olwen to help me escape so I could join fitz Maurice and attack Haworth, but she thought it would be too difficult for me to get out of the fortress undetected and too risky for her to help me. They didnt like her very much now that Rhirid was dead, apparently; they distrusted her because of her relationship with a Norman. She said she would go instead. She would get out while Guri and his men were occupied with Haworth and warn fitz Maurice. I never saw her again, Teleri! And neither did fitz Maurice!"
  • "But," continued the obliging drunk more loudly, "things aint half bad with this Avaritus. No worse than before."
  • Praying that his uncle would change his mind and come back to get him, Zachary trudged back to his room. He'd only been in Madame Kloochie's house for one day and already hated it beyond belief. Her filth was nearly as disgusting as the worms Krage had put in the spaghetti back in Boston, and even if he spent a solid year cleaning, he wasn't convinced he could get rid of the sickening smell of the place. Easing his sore back onto the bed, he wondered how things could possibly get any worse.
  • "Soft, lad--speak soft!" he whispered. "For--Lord love you, Mart'n, 'tis worse than ghosts as I do fear! Dog bite me, pal, here's been black and bloody doings aboard us this last two nights."
  • It was amazing to find that every one had been of exactly the same opinion for some time past, but no one had dared to suggest a course of action which implied a belief that Dan might be in imminent danger, if not worse.
  • The overplus does. In spring, that is to say in early spring, right after the snow melts, this whole swamp is a sheet of water, even worse than it is now, and the houses on the higher grounds are on islands, the farmers going to and from them with boats, but that soon runs off until it reaches the level of complete saturation, in other words, a bog as wet as it can hold. Now, what we have to do, is to trace this highest point or points, such as you spoke of, or, to speak more correctly, the succession of the lines of highest points, a very crooked series of lines, and find out their relation each to the other. This you see, will divide up the swamp into several drainage areas. Then each of these areas is to be surveyed to determine the line of drainage, the whole to be conformed to the main ditches that will flow to the river, and this intricate network of ditches must be kept at just the exact level of fall, so that it will flow unencumbered to the streams on either side of the swamp.
  • Made all the worse by watching the supervisor sat under a shady tree scoffing watermelon while us silly eejits worked!
  • Then at last, they drew breath. The work was done and well done. Dick was with them, safe and sound, and none the worse for his terrible experience. The band which had been the scourge of that distracted country had been practically wiped out, and the leader, who for so long had defied God and man, was a prisoner, awaiting his fate. What that fate would be no one could doubt, who knew how richly he merited death.
  • After supper he thaws out a little, and I wheedle out of him a part of his history. He settled on this spot of semi-cultivable land during the flush times on the Comstock, and used to prosper very well by raising vegetables, with the aid of Truckee-River water, and hauling them to the mining-camps; but the palmy days of the Comstock have departed and with them our lonely rancher's prosperity. Mine host has barely blankets enough for his own narrow bunk, and it is really an act of generosity on his part when he takes a blanket off his bed and invites me to extract what comfort I can get out of it for the night. Snowy mountains are round about, and curled up on the floor of the shanty, like a kitten under a stove in mid-winter, I shiver the long hours away, and endeavor to feel thankful that it is no worse.
  • "It's gone, and we know where. Now, Mr. Feltram, I did not steal that note, and no one but you and I have access to this desk. You wish to go away, and I have no objection to that--but d--n me if you take away that note with you; and you may as well produce it now and here, as hereafter in a worse place."
