  • You are a strong companion, Hercules, then said Harris, who looked at the negro as if the latter were for sale. "In the markets of Africa you would be worth a good price."
  • The facts about maize are worth considering. Every year 200,000,000 bags, each weighing 200 pounds, are consumed throughout the world. Heretofore the principal sources of supply have been the Argentine and the United States. We have come to the time, however, when we absorb practically our whole crop. Formerly we exported about 10,000,000 bags. There is no decrease in corn consumption despite prohibition. Hence Rhodesia is bound to loom large in the situation. Last year she produced more than a million bags. Maize is a crop that revels in sunshine and in Rhodesia the sun shines brilliantly throughout the year practically without variation. This enables the product to be sun-dried.
  • "Poor kid," he breathed; "it's been tough on her. Well, I guess it's been tough on everybody. He turned out to be some bad actor, this Monohan party. I never did like the beggar. He was a little too high-handed in his smooth, kid-glove way. But I didn't suppose he'd try to burn up a million dollars' worth of timber to satisfy a grudge. Well, he put his foot in it proper at last. He'll get a good long jolt in the pen, if the boys don't beat the constables to him and take him to pieces."
  • "You should not talk to Doctor Torvey so, sir," said he grimly; "he's the greatest tattler in the town. It was old Farmer Trebeck, who could buy and sell us all down here, who lent that money. Partly from good-will, but not without acknowledgment. He has my hand for the first, not worth much, and yours to a bond for the two thousand guineas you brought home with you. It seems strange you should not remember that venerable and kind old farmer whom you talked with so long that day. His grandson, who expects to stand well in his will, being a trainer in Lord Varney's stables, has sometimes a tip to give, and he is the source of your information."
  • No jewels? said I. "You have a wealth of hair, and what about the pearls behind your lips? They're worth a king's ransom."
  • Once she had the garage door open, Jackie fired up Sarahs car. It took some juggling, but she managed to get along without a car of her own; it would be easier tomorrow morning, when she could drive her dads car to work. It was worth it to save money; she had plans to try junior college the next year, but didnt want to get buried under a student loan until she was sure she could handle the school work.
  • "Yeah, thats probably true, but this is the only way Im going to be able to get you what you want. Two million. In gems. By the end of the week. Heck, theyre probably worth more than two million. This is a deal for you."
  • "Sure," agreed Paul; "his skin will be a valuable trophy to take back home with us. Jiminy, I wish it had been daylight and we had brought our camera with us! We could have secured some pictures worth while for the Daily Independent."
  • The old sailor's honest speech went straight to Ben's heart, and he saw very plainly how deep was Luke's affection for his younger brother. "You're a messmate worth having, Luke!" he exclaimed. "I don't wonder Larry thought so much of you."
  • Great governor! look at the fine ham hanging from the rafters, with strings of garlic, and all sorts of things! he cried out. "You rummage around in closets, Max, while I'm climbing up, and grabbing that same smoked pork. Say, the country is saved, and those poor girls can have something worth while to eat. I've learned a new way to fry ham without even a pan; though chances are we'll be able to pick up something along that line in the kitchen here."
  • Who ever would have thought, after all, murmured he, "that we'd find books intact as we did? A miracle--nothing less! With our printing-plant already at work under the cliff, all the art, science and literature of the ages--all that's worth preserving--can be still kept for mankind. But if I hadn't happened to find a library of books in a New York bonded warehouse all cased up for transportation, the work of preservation would have been forever impossible!"
  • I send you a picture of my room from the outside. From the inside the view is so "pretty." Across the square is the cathedral and the trees are filled with birds that sing all night, and statues, and pretty globes. The band plays every night and when it plays "Hello, Winter Time," I CRY for you. I paid the band-master $20 to play it, and it is worth IT. I sit on the balcony and think of you and know just what you are doing, for there is only an hour and a half difference. That is, when with you it is ten o'clock with me it is eight-thirty. So when you and Louise are at dinner you can know I am just coming in from my horseback ride to bathe and "nap." And when at eight-thirty you are playing the Victor, I am drinking a cocktail to you, and shooing away the Colonels and Admirals who interfere with my ceremony of drinking to my dear wife.
  • From Chatalja, the right flank of the Bulgarian position, I passed along the front to Ermenikioi ("the village of Armenians"), passing the night at Arjenli, near the centre and the headquarters of the ammunition park. That night at Arjenli seemed to make a rough and sometimes perilous journey, which had extended over seven days, worth while.
  • But to be on the safe, it is still worth carrying a screwdriver in 10 tax free.
  • He caught a team of runaway horses this morning, too, said Mary, looking proudly at the fish. "I wish I could do something worth talking about, but I'm only a girl."
  • Ladies pulled on their gloves, young men whooped, and the assembly clattered to the ballroom, with its high arched ceilings, tiled with patterned mosaics and crystal chandeliers imported from Hademervery expensive but with an exquisiteness well worth the price. (At least, that was how Mother had defended the purchase to Father.) The musicians strummed their lyres and beat out a jolly tune with their drums. Extending a hand to me and another to Auralia, my father led us into the hall. Once on the smooth marble floor, he dropped Auralia's hand, and began twirling me around. I did not miss Auralia's glare as she partnered with sandy-haired Necolai.
  • They were late for the return bus home, as they knew they would be. Having stayed after quiting time at work, for a few hours of desperately needed overtime. But it was worth it. Donald would be able to have a fine education, and rise out of this limited, unsecured lifestyle. Thomas Lemore put his arm around his wife, looking into her warm brown eyes. He gave her a bright smile, "Well dear, ready for a nice walk home again. "Jeannette returned the smile and replied, "Sure, but only if we take the scenic route, I get bored so easily." They both laughed as they started walking down the street. On this side of town, there was not much scenery other than working factory buildings and condemned ones.
  • It's a great little old land, he said, and the inflection of the quietly spoken words was that of affection. "A man could ask for no better, Jim. Conditions right now are damnable; you've got to scrap all along the line for what's yours. But what do you know that is worth the having that isn't worth the fighting for? And one of these fine days when Mexico settles down to business, sort of grows up and gets past the schoolboy stage, we'll have the one combination now lacking--law and order."
  • "Very good. Give it nothing, I pray you," he says pointedly, removing his hat, "for it is not worth the feeding."
  • It's land the Chippewa Indians ceded to the government to be held in trust and disposed of for their own benefit. It's worth just about nothing now, but when the land is all drained it'll be a mighty valuable section of the State.
  • As soon as this feat was accomplished, and it was done with sufficient readiness, though somewhat lubberly, twenty or thirty of the savages clapped on the warp, until they had tautened it to as great a strain as it would bear. After this they ceased pulling, and I observed a search around the galley in quest of the cook's axe, evidently with a design to cut the cables. I thought this a fact worth communicating to Marble, and I resolved to do so at the risk of my life. "The Indians have run a line to the island, and are about to cut the cables, no doubt intending to warp the ship ashore; and that, too, at the very spot where they once had the Sea-Otter."
  • Two equally strong feelings drew Pierre irresistibly to this purpose. The first was a feeling of the necessity of sacrifice and suffering in view of the common calamity, the same feeling that had caused him to go to Mozhaysk on the twenty-fifth and to make his way to the very thick of the battle and had now caused him to run away from his home and, in place of the luxury and comfort to which he was accustomed, to sleep on a hard sofa without undressing and eat the same food as Gerasim. The other was that vague and quite Russian feeling of contempt for everything conventional, artificial, and human--for everything the majority of men regard as the greatest good in the world. Pierre had first experienced this strange and fascinating feeling at the Sloboda Palace, when he had suddenly felt that wealth, power, and life--all that men so painstakingly acquire and guard--if it has any worth has so only by reason the joy with which it can all be renounced.
  • Also worth mentioning was the good natured ribbing given to donald angie due to his his foray into the world of male modeling.
  • A former Lloyds Bank worker in charge of online security has admitted carrying out a fraud worth more than
  • "Is it okay if we go to the city to eat?" he asked when he started the car. "It's a bit of a drive, but there's a restaurant there where I feel it's worth the extra travel time."
  • He visited New York on this trip, and caused something of a sensation even there while his money held out. His diversions are innocent, turning largely to investments in food and drink, a tendency born, I suppose, of long privations in the Arctic. His most humorous exploit on this trip was entering the most fashionable restaurant in the metropolis, and ordering fifty dollars worth of ham and eggs, after vainly attempting to make out the French of the bill of fare.
  • Miss Ravenden nodded at him appreciatively. "Yes; you see it too," she said. "You did something worth while when you saved those two. But what about your Portuguese? Do you really think he had anything to do with killing that poor sailor? Helga told me about it. What an extraordinary case it is!"
  • With breathable waders, on the other hand, i feel that the best are worth paying for.
  • In some ways, its just another thing to do. Its another project that keeps me up after Scotts asleep, and its another distraction that occupies my mind when Im playing with Morgen. But its worth it, I tell Scott. This is what Ive been working for. This will be recognition and compensation for my hard work, and it will help support us as I pursue this path. So, I gather my straight-A transcripts, my glowing letters of recommendation, and the article I had published in Feminisimos. Then, on the last day of January, I submit my application.
  • By the time the Bradys finished, they had nine smugglers exposed, and fully quarter of a million dollars' worth of valuables were seized.
  • "Well, as I get it, by the time we get through screwing-up things around here it probably won't be worth returning. Besides, though my life wasn't bad, exactly, I was lonely. Not much to go back to."
  • The money belt is good, said the greedy old man; "but where are the rings? He had rings on his fingers; in one was a stone worth twenty ducats."
  • Ambani and Mittal, Indias 8th richest man with a net worth of $7 billion, have also invested significantly in telecommunications. Mittals Bharti Airtel Ltd. (BHARTI) is Indias biggest mobile-phone operator while Ambani is readying a 4G network in order to tap demand for high-speed wireless Internet.
  • My father- my own father- doesn't even really know me. But he goes to work every day and he makes his cash and so he thinks, somehow, that that means something. But what the hell has he ever done in his life that was worth anything? The bitter, disparaging inflection in the words. That being the pattern woven into the rug that had been pulled out from beneath my then surefooted, now wandering soles.
  • With expectations so high at Cimbom, what is going to happen when Sneijder does not manage to guide his team past FC Schalke 04 in March and take it to the quarter finals of the Champions League? People will remember all the money that is spent on the small Dutchman and start wondering whether he is really worth it.
  • Don't know how it would work, replied Frank, smiling a little, however, at the faith Andy seemed to have in a blazing brand, now that he could look back to his late experience with the jaguar. "Never heard that snakes were afraid of fire. And besides, there's no need. Now keep quiet, and watch. You'll see something worth while; but be ready to jump clear."
  • "El, please…" Jeralyle pleaded with her, seeing the lightning still flicking at her fingertips and getting the sense that she was going to attack no matter what it cost her. Caring for both her and the Gnome dangling there helplessly he begged again, "Elit's not worth it."
  • Worth while! exploded Tod. "Is a half million dollars worth while?" Then he repented having spoken out so freely, reminded by the sharp glances of the two men. "Oh, Jerry's all right," he apologized. "Dad thinks as much of him as he does of me."
  • On Saturday 4th May, 2002, Chris separated his male plants from the female ones, based on flower type. He had a good hydroponics system set up in his room, with a powerful lamp, circulating water, and an enclosed tin-foil lined cardboard surround. The female plants are the only ones worth cultivating for resin, which is mostly concentrated in beads around and just beneath the female flower. The males you just chuck, to stop them seeding the female flowers prematurely. And to make a bit of space for the real goods.
  • I have found employment of a sort, the Count rattled on, without a shade of embarrassment. "It might be questioned if I am worth the remuneration which I receive, but at least I am happy. I am permitted to serve a friend in some little matters of a personal nature."
  • Since my journey from Katanga onward was through the heart of Africa, perhaps it may be worth while to tell briefly of the equipment required for such an expedition. Although I travelled for the most part in the greatest comfort that the Colony afforded, it was necessary to prepare for any emergency. In the Congo you must be self-sufficient and absolutely independent of the country. This means that you carry your own bed and bedding (usually a folding camp-bed), bath-tub, food, medicine-chest, and cooking utensils.
  • So they were, as much so as any other people in the world, and they were as capable of being developed and educated to better things. As to this being a new country, it came slowly back into Ned's mind that there had been a great and populous empire here at a time when the island upon which the city of New York was afterward built was a bushy wilderness, occupied by half-naked savages, who were ready to sell it for a few dollars' worth of kettles and beads.
  • I returned to the little barber's without looking for other adventures, but deeply interested in the event of this. Therefore, on the following day, I went, in splendid attire, to the old woman's an hour sooner than the time. My lord, said she, you are punctual, and I take it kindly. To be sure the game is worth the chase. I have seen our young widow, and we have had a good deal of talk about you. Not a word was to be said; but I have taken such a liking to you that I cannot hold my tongue. You have made yourself agreeable, and will soon be a happy man. Between ourselves, the lady is a relishing morsel, her husband did not live long with her; he glided away like a shadow: she has all the merit of an absolute girl. The good old lady, no doubt, meant one of those clever girls, who contrive not to live single, though they live unmarried.
  • When he lands, he discovers his stallion there as though it had been waiting the whole time. A bit of ice can be seen on the reins. When the Knight mounts, the armor spreads over the animal. It rears up, frightened, but soon finds control once the armor has finished its work. The stallion, without Alastor needing to rein it, starts the journey to the west. This, the greatest of horses, has proven its worth.
  • Humphrey scratched his nose. He was silent, thinking for once. Was it worth his soldiers and money to kill this foolish boy? This boy who had nothing but his fathers name and arrogance to back him up? It was possible that this little rebellion could collapse on its own, once the rebels realized that their leader was barely a man, let alone an inspiration. That saidpeople are stupid. People forget easily. So people need lessons. Wiping out a rebel army is one hell of a lesson. It would take years for people to forget that.
  • Milenkoooooo laughed. I wish I could write down what it sounded like, but I'm not really sure how to sound it out and spell it. No, not at all. If you ever see me though, feel free to ask. I can give you a rough imitation. It's absolutely ridiculous and extremely stupid sounding, but it's a laugh worth knowing, lest you ever have to hear it yourself. Plus, if this foolish book is ever adapted for film, or if I make an audiobook out of it, I'll let you hear. It was a goofy laugh though. Not at all threatening, though Milenkoooooo thought just the opposite.
  • All right. But I bet you I ain't going to throw off on di'monds. Some of 'em's worth twenty dollars apiece--there ain't any, hardly, but's worth six bits or a dollar.
  • Dick Sand would have wished to take part in this fishing, which had a great attraction for him, but he understood that, for one reason, a man's arms were worth more than his for service in a whale-boat, and that for another, he alone could replace Captain Hull. So he was satisfied. The whale-boat's crew must be composed of the five men, including the master, Howik, which formed the whole crew of the "Pilgrim." The four sailors were going to take their places at the oars, and Howik would hold the stern oar, which serves to guide a boat of this kind. A simple rudder, in fact, would not have a prompt enough action, and in case the side oars should be disabled, the stern oar, well handled, could put the whale-boat beyond the reach of the monster's blows.
  • That looks as natural as a map, doesn't it? You have seen globes with those divisions pictured on them, but there is the globe itself. If our summer tourists could take in this experience also, it would make a vacation worth having. Isn't it grand? I see you are thinking about our personal peril, but I think I know men who would take the risk and put themselves in our place for the sake of this magnificent view.
  • As a further aid to hazard identification, the following are worth considering.
  • "Bah, your caravan is not worth my time." Mason spat on the ground in front of Wikkid's horse. "There will be another time."
  • 'Test of the man, if his worth be, 'In accord with the ultimate plan, "'That he be not, to his marring, "'Always and utterly man; "'That he bring out of the battle "'Fitter and undefiled, "'To woman the heart of a woman, "'To children the heart of a child.'"
  • As if anything good were worth while when it has to be guarded and put in legirons and handcuffs in order to keep it good. Your desire for a chaperone as much as implies that I am that sort of creature. I prefer to be good because it is good to be good, rather than because I can't be bad because some arguseyed old frump won't let me have a chance to be bad.
  • "Despise me if I do not!" insists Iago, military in dress and bearing. His face reveals anger and frustration. "Three great ones of the city, in personal suit to make me his lieutenant, off-capped to him! And, by the faith of man, I know my price!—I am worth no worse a place!
  • When the scouts had their next weekly meeting, Hugh thought it worth while to give the troop some description of the events that had come the way of himself and his two chums. He purposely avoided more than casual mention of Bud's invention, because he had found a chance to bring the other down from the heights where he had been sailing, and Bud now knew that he had made his bright discovery "a mile too late," as he himself expressed it, looking exceedingly downcast at the time.
  • It was a small vehicle with a narrow seat, and they were compelled to sit so close together that he felt the softness and warmth of her body. He was compelled, too, to confess that Mrs. Markham was as attractive by daylight as by lamplight. A fur jacket and a dark dress, both close-fitting, did not conceal the curves of her trim figure. Her cheeks were glowing red with the rapid motion and the touch of a frosty morning, and the curve of long eyelashes did not wholly hide a pair of eyes that with tempting glances could draw on the suspecting and the unsuspecting alike. Mrs. Markham never looked better, never fresher, never more seductive than on that morning, and Prescott felt, with a sudden access of pride, that this delightful woman really liked him and considered him worth while. That was a genuine tribute and it did not matter why she liked him.
  • The beaver were as abundant as ever. To keep out of sight of Indians, they set their traps after dusk, ran them very early in the morning, and lay hidden all day. It certainly was not pleasant, to live like 'coons and owls, but so many furs were worth the trouble.
  • Indeed I was glad to see the last of those Easterns although they had brought us safely and treated us well, for all the while I was never sure but that they had some orders to lead us into a trap, or perhaps to make away with us in our sleep and take back the gold and the priceless, rose-hued pearls, any two of which were worth it all. But such was not their command nor did they dare to steal them on their own account, since then, even if they escaped the vengeance of the King, their wives and all their families would have paid the price.
  • It's going splendidly, Toby! cried Step Hen, almost ready to jump up and down, in his excitement and joy, despite his wearied condition. "Thad's taking it, word for word. I reckon I c'n make him understand something, even if I am such a big bungler at this thing. But I tell you right now, after this I'm going in for wigwag work the hardest you ever saw. It's the greatest stunt a scout can follow up. Why, it's worth everything else at such a time as this. Now to tell him about the two men headed that way, and how they're after Aleck Rawson."
  • Ah! here is a haul worth all risks to get, he muttered, and the contents of the chest were put in a sack and tied upon his saddle.
  • He made up his mind, from what his companion went on to tell him, that there would be a great deal worth seeing, but at that time nobody was dreaming how many Americans, older and younger, were soon to travel over the old Cortes road. California was to be annexed, as well as Texas, and before Ned Crawford would be old enough to cast his first vote, there was to be a great tide of eager gold hunters pouring along what was called the Tehuantepec route to the placers and diggings.
  • "Im sure Ill be worth every penny. Dave 2 obviously thought so. He has already sent me the money. And now we visit Sunrise."
  • Dick had made a good meal, and removed the black from his face after deciding that it would not be worth while to go to bed, when, as he went down the yard and caught sight of Solomon, he stopped to stare at the cunning animal, who seemed to be working about his ears like semaphores.
  • Thus the current 1,000 metical coin will be worth one of what the government calls the " new family " of the metical coin will be worth one of what the government calls the " new family " of the metical.
  • When dealing with the Micro Man, you must become a Micro Manager yourself. Don't say anything that may give him an opening. Don't ask him for anything, especially if there are time constraints. Don't start a conversation he will not be able to complete. Think before you speak to him, and then think twice. Will it be worth it? How will I be able to get away?
  • "No Men of the South," said Rigel. "We have what men we can muster from Green Vale, eleven Stars, a few dozen rebel easterners under Lieutenant Jalal. Small squadrons from Alpha Centauri, Inner Mongolia, and the European Remnant. The portal will open soon; we need to star marching east now. The Old Powers and Atacama will join us on the way. All together we should have five or six thousand fighters." He swept them with that look that made Nasan shiver. He was surreally beautiful, with those high cheekbones and skin like it was molded out of ice. Violet eyes with two centuries' worth of pain and some billion years of depth. "We need numbers. Calgary is well-defended. Without enough fighters the losses will be massive."
  • "And you barely act like youre out of teenage years. These are all things that Doug and I think about, but we dont let them consume us. We will deal with them as they come. For instance, right now we are in the process of trying to adopt a baby. Its going to take awhile, because of all the prejudice about Icarus people thats still out there. But its worth it."
  • "T'lingi," said Iberi, "it seems to me that this island is not worth the keeping if we have to feast this thief Bosambo and search our lands for his pleasure."
  • Of course I can, answered Purchas, cordially. "At least, I can give ye a pipe of a sort--a clay; I buys about six shillin's worth every time I starts upon a voyage. I get 'em at a shop in the Commercial Road, at the rate of fifteen for a shillin'! I find it pays a lot better than buyin' four briars at one-and-six apiece; for, you see, when you've lost or smashed four briars, why, they're done for; but when you've lost or smashed four clays--and I find that they last a'most as long as briars-- why, I've still a good stock of pipes to fall back upon. If a clay is good enough for ye, ye're welcome to one, or a dozen if ye like."
  • She tried to explain all of this to him. ‘I don't want you to get hurt because of me. It's not worth it. Maybe we should just forget it.'
  • No, Amber admitted cautiously; "I merely heard a rumour that there was something uncommon afoot. Is it really anything worth while?"
  • We took our sweet-ass time eating dinner knowing that Dickstein would race to the beverage center to get the case of beer. We even told him that he better get a cold case or his ass would be sleeping on the porch. We weren't being cruel because it took the dude so long to follow through on anything. It was painful to watch the rusty wheels in his brain trying to generate enough power to produce intelligent thought. That just goes to show how much the diploma hanging on my wall is worth.
  • Once the couple split Brads assets, Amanda was worth about $400 million, give or take a few million. He was worth close to $1 billion at the time of the divorce, and would peak at $1.5 billion a few years later. She took a two-month vacation at a spa in Palm Springs and then decided to open a clinic for children suffering from various afflictions. The "Kid Planet" cost Amanda about $25 million to build, but the rewards of the new-world facility gave her riches beyond any financial bounty.
  • They'll be worth their weight in gold many times on the trip, said Tom, when even Mr. Witherspoon stood listening with interest, for he had not as yet learned everything, he was free to confess.
  • "I, for one, consider the character of an individual over any concerns about blood," Nellise said thoughtfully. "And I think I can safely speak for everyone here that your heritage is of little concern to us. As for this mission, they cannot force you to go, Sayana. I can only imagine the fear you must be feeling at the thought of walking back into your homeland to face your people. I still do not think this is the wisest course of action, but if we can avoid further bloodshed by freeing Morik, then I believe it is worth the risk."
  • "Yeah. That doesn't bode well for the grand I had left in cash when I closed out my accounts. Maybe it isn't worth anything anymore. Trade. Sounds like we should keep fishing for junk to me."
  • Nay, I'll pole, said Dave. "If yow mean to go we may as well get theer i' good time; but I don't think it's worth the trouble."
  • All right, he said. "I don't know whether we'll have time to do what I want or not, and whether I'll be able to do it, anyhow. But it's worth trying. Now come on past the house. Easy! This is the hardest part of it."
  • In these waters a week would suffice for ships of heavy tonnage to fill their casks with the precious oil. Thus the new men of the crew, and especially the Americans, did not conceal their regret for the captain's indifference in the presence of so many animals worth their weight in gold, and more abundant than they had ever seen whales at that period of the year. The leading malcontent was Hearne, a sealing-master, to whom his companions were ready to listen. He had found it easy to get the upper hand of the other sailors by his rough manner and the surly audacity that was expressed by his whole personality. Hearne was an American, and forty-five years of age. He was an active, vigorous man, and I could see him in my mind's eye, standing up on his double bowed whaling-boat brandishing the harpoon, darting it into the flank of a whale, and paying out the rope. He must have been fine to see. Granted his passion for this business, I could not be surprised that his discontent showed itself upon occasion.
  • The wellies were a bit clumpy but dry feet were worth sacrificing for. Besides, his fashion sense couldnt really get much worse whatever he put on his feet.
  • The sigh turned to a startled gasp as she felt a trio of ice-cold objects creep down her back. After frantically tracking them down with her hands, she retrieved the culprits. Three large silver coins, worth fifty coppers each. Leo must have slipped them into her hood just before he left.
  • Thad walked away, satisfied that Step Hen was proving his worth as a scout. That little lesson of the humble bug had opened his eyes, and through those touched his heart. Perhaps he might not change all at once, for he was inclined to stumble, and fall down, when he had made good resolutions; but the chances were he would see more in life than ever before.
  • Yes, nodded Fernald. "Had the waves been longer, the mine would have sunk to its usual depth. Had it not cost lives and a good ship, it would have been a sight worth seeing. As it was, since the lives and the ship had to be lost, I am glad that I was there to see it."
  • Jorden paused to buy one of the oily brown things that the stall sold and had a brief discussion with the cook on the worth of the local currency. He hoped he could trust the man, and offered a little extra for the information. Fortunately for the outsider, the cook in question was feeling in an unusually pleasant mood that afternoon, and he gave the poor idiot a reasonably accurate description of the use of money: how it was minted, what you did with it, what it was worth and how you earned it. He took the cost of ten pork rolls as payment and gave the silly little boy one of those pork rolls.
  • 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 fifth day out they crossed the Kansas, when the country became more broken, and they saw the first buffalo on their route, which Lewis had the good luck to kill. With the aid of Howe it was cut up and the choicest parts brought to camp. Never was a supper enjoyed with more zest than that night. Delicious steaming beef stakes, wheat cakes, butter, cheese, new milk and tea, spread out on a snow white cloth, on their temporary table, to which they had converted two boards by nailing sheets across the back, and resting each end on a camp stool, made a feast worth travelling a few days into the wilderness to enjoy.
  • 'Ah, well, Macumazahn,' he said, 'you must be gentle with me, for here is not my place. I am weary of it, weary to death of eating and drinking, of sleeping and giving in marriage. I love not this soft life in stone houses that takes the heart out of a man, and turns his strength to water and his flesh to fat. I love not the white robes and the delicate women, the blowing of trumpets and the flying of hawks. When we fought the Masai at the kraal yonder, ah, then life was worth the living, but here is never a blow struck in anger, and I begin to think I shall go the way of my fathers and lift Inkosi-kaas no more,' and he held up the axe and gazed at it in sorrow.
  • Well, I suppose Dick would be rash enough to try for that, if he hears about it, murmured Mr. Hamilton. "I guess, taking it on all sides, that I'll let him have an airship, if only to prove that he can't work it. He needs a little toning down, most young chaps do, I fancy. I know I did when I was a lad. Yes, if he makes a fizzle of it, the lesson may be worth something to him--throwing his money away on an airship. But I'll give my consent."
  • David, however, did not waste much time in thinking of the troubles that might come in the future. He preferred to think about pleasanter things. He was so wholly engrossed with his plans that it seemed to him that he was not more than five minutes in reaching the landing. There was no one in the street, and nothing there worth looking at, except General Gordon's white horse, which was hitched to a post in front of Silas Jones's store. As David approached, the General himself came out, accompanied by the grocer, who was as polite and attentive to his rich customers as he was indifferent to the poor ones.
  • Though more than ninety per cent. of the city's one-time wealth had long since vanished, and though all standards of worth had wholly changed, yet much remained to harvest.
  • "Burn my vessel!" cried Captain Speedy, who could scarcely pronounce the words. "A vessel worth fifty thousand dollars!"
  • Charlie shook out his arms, trying to get the blood flow circulating again. "Thanks. My fingers were getting numb--although it was almost worth it. You have no idea how entertaining you all were."
  • You said it, bro'! said Bagless. "Sometimes it just isn't worth getting up in the morning and robbing body parts from graves."
  • This whole episode of bear life in the Yellowstone is so extraordinary that it will be well worth while for any man who has the right powers and enough time, to make a complete study of the life and history of the Yellowstone bears. Indeed, nothing better could be done by some one of our outdoor fauna naturalists than to spend at least a year in the Yellowstone, and to study the life habits of all the wild creatures therein. A man able to do this, and to write down accurately and interestingly what he had seen, would make a contribution of permanent value to our nature literature.
  • They felt like heroes in an instant. Here was a gorgeous triumph; they were missed; they were mourned; hearts were breaking on their account; tears were being shed; accusing memories of unkindness to these poor lost lads were rising up, and unavailing regrets and remorse were being indulged; and best of all, the departed were the talk of the whole town, and the envy of all the boys, as far as this dazzling notoriety was concerned. This was fine. It was worth while to be a pirate, after all.
  • Well, so am I miserable enough, but I suppose we must be worth something, and that's why the skipper's going to feed us well.

  • Tiffany was relieved at how the conversation had turned out. While she certainly could use the money from the proceeds of selling her mother's stuff, she had been subconsciously dreading going back into that house and sorting through all the remaining stuff. It was well worth having someone else do that work for her.
  • Was separating Shia from Sunni a mission worth what is so facilely called the
  • But we must meet them with cunning as well as bravery. To learn their plans, so to defeat them, is worth twenty prisoners. I think that if we take this man to Detroit, we might learn a great deal. The governor would find out from him the secrets of the Americans. I should like to take him. You would be rewarded, for your British father is good to his red children. When I bring him back, you may do with him as you choose. Have I spoken well?
