  • "The means are... the balance of power in Europe and the rights of the people," the abbe was saying. "It is only necessary for one powerful nation like Russia--barbaric as she is said to be--to place herself disinterestedly at the head of an alliance having for its object the maintenance of the balance of power of Europe, and it would save the world!"
  • The next day, Stryver plans to take Lucie to the Vauxhall Gardens to make his marriage proposal. On his way, he drops in at Tellsons Bank, where he informs Mr. Lorry of his intentions. Lorry persuades Stryver to postpone his proposal until he knows for certain that Lucie will accept. This admonition upsets Stryver. He almost insults Lucie as a "mincing Fool," but Lorry warns him against doing so. Lorry asks that Stryver hold off his proposal for a few hours to give him time to consult the family and see exactly where Stryver stands. Later that night, Lorry visits Stryver and reports that his fears have been confirmed. If Stryver were to propose, the Manettes would reject his offer. Stryver dismisses the entire affair as one of the "vanities" of "empty-headed girls" and begs Lorry to forget it.
  • For, while he was but too ready to accept the position that was almost immediately offered to him on his coming of age, and found, indeed, a subtle pleasure in the thought that he might really become to the London of his own day what to imperial Neronian Rome the author of the Satyricon once had been, yet in his inmost heart he desired to be something more than a mere arbiter elegantiarum, to be consulted on the wearing of a jewel, or the knotting of a necktie, or the conduct of a cane. He sought to elaborate some new scheme of life that would have its reasoned philosophy and its ordered principles, and find in the spiritualizing of the senses its highest realization.
  • After some weeks on Cyprus, he began to think of Nicolette. At first he felt that such thoughts betrayed Diane. But he came to realize that Diane would not feel that way. She had wanted him to be happy with Nicolette.
  • nothing ever worked. Seamen found the only real solution to the problem was "latitude sailing," a time-consuming and expensive procedure whereby a captain would sail north or south to the approximate latitude of his destination and then sail due east or west, rather than trying to sail on the diagonal. King Philip III of Spain had offered a fortune to the first man who discovered how to tell longitude at sea.
  • WOLFE: I am happy to be here. It is a pleasure. Honestly, I was afraid of what the reception would begiven my prior work as strictly a childrens author.
  • "Those not of the First Generation can visit and still be entirely visible Above, but who would wish to depart Atlantis?"
  • "No. They were found floating near the margin by a park-keeper. They have been identified as her clothes, and it seemed to me that if the clothes were there the body would not be far off."
  • "Well," Lord Arglay said, sitting down leisurely, "I can easily make you another--ten, twenty more. At least, I can't, because I don't want to annoy Suleiman ben Daood--on whom be the Peace! as my friend the Hajji would say. If it belongs to him. But you can make them for yourself. What a time Giles is, showing Birlesmere the tombs in Westminster Abbey!"
  • "Please, Nicolette. Be kind to me. I have been back a day and a night, and I have yet to feel your arms around me. By God, I have suffered and bled for months in this stinking country. I have fought my way back to you when all the other French knights were captured. I had hoped you would welcome me back. It has been very long for you, too, has it not? Have you not missed me? Have you never wanted me?"
  • Johnston also suggests a national health service for older Americans that would help drive down the cost of healthcare. Doctors would be protected from the lawsuits that often threaten private practices and the service would end "defensive medicine" -- i.e. extra, and often expensive, tests. Those additional testsnot the lawsuitsare what's largely driving healthcare costs higher, Johnston says.
  • Back in his council chamber Amalric held a chair for her, then sank into his own. His fury now spent, he seemed worn out. His manner was almost apologetic, though Amalric de Gobignon would never apologize to anyone. "Did I hurt you?" he asked.
  • EVEN before Silvio Berlusconi announced that his party would withdraw support for Italy's coalition government, the task faced by the prime minister, Mario Monti, was enormous. Mr Monti came to power after elected politicans had repeatedly failed to do anything to get Italy's economy moving. The hope was that a technocrat with little need to placate interest groups would be able to push through difficult reforms, get the economy to grow and keep bond markets happy. This would have been hard enough were Italy an island. As it is, her neighbours and trading parners are mostly in crisis too. Mr Monti has made a start and done some unpopular things. But Italy's overiding economic problema lack of competitiveness that manifests itself in low productivity growthwill take years to fix, not months.
  • It would seem that having rejected the belief of the ancients in man's subjection to the Deity and in a predetermined aim toward which nations are led, modern history should study not the manifestations of power but the causes that produce it. But modern history has not done this. Having in theory rejected the view held by the ancients, it still follows them in practice.
  • Minutes later she came out of the shop, clutching a small, brown bottle. She twisted the plastic lid off and tilted it back to her lips, letting the sickly, sweet liquid slide down her throat and grimaced, knowing that her clean lifestyle would give her a minimum of tolerance to the codeine solution.
  • The garrison did not have long to take their positions, either. The sunlight immediately flickered out like a candle on the last bit of wick. Peter was hoping for an eclipse, some sort of omen against Benedicts men. But it was nothing of the sort. He looked up to see a massive flight of arrows floating almost serenely in the air. Later on, Peter would ask himself why he never felt the urge to dive for cover. It may have been because he had never seen death look so beautiful before. Time crunched to a halt as the hundreds of arrows laid suspended in the sky like drops of water from a gulf splash. As time began to yawn and stretch its arms, the arrows began to fall back down to earth. Gravity was going to try and kill them all that day.
  • Sarah did every step her father said to do. In her mind she felt power rushing into her head and continued to build. When it felt uncomfortable she released the power and it expanded like an invisible sphere. As the sphere grew like the speed of light everything that the bubble passed became etched into her mind. Everything in her mind became colored in black or white, but it was worth it. Everything became overly vivid before her, to her front, behind her back and above and below where she stood. Every leaf, bug, bird, reptile, mammal and twig stood firmly there in her mind. Not only that, but it looked like a perfect ultrasound. Sarah saw inside every object and person as well, except for herself. The sonar didnt take much power, which was a good thing to know. It is so magnificent that she never dreamed this would be possible. "That is so…"
  • Leanne simply tied the second man to an antique, high-backed chair, and sat cross-legged before him, asking him questions in a calm, dispassionate voice. There was something unnerving about this tiny, fragile looking creature with her bloodred eyes and vertically slit pupils. Her black hair was swept back from that dead-white face, and her lips and teeth were still stained with the blood of her last meal. She would ask her question, and when the answer was not forthcoming she would smile, and then lean forward and drink from him. When she was finished she would ask her question again. He almost always answered.
  • Crossing the rest of the great hall took several minutes, and neither man spoke until after theyd passed into the western section of the citys ground level. Jian began to grow suspicious as the other wizard brought him closer and closer to the wing of Crysmir devoted to the offices of the Wizards Panel. Eyes small, he hissed a low warning. The offices belonging to the members of the Panel, unlike the rest of the rooms in Crysmir, were magically secured, and any spell triggered against them would set off thunderous alarms. Perhaps it would not be unlikely to think that Loewen planned on doing just that in hopes of escaping in the assured melee that would follow.
  • "Because if I stopped trying to stop you," Jim said, his mouth forming a wide grin, "This book would end here and we still have a good twenty-seven thousand words and change to go. So were going to be chasing each other around for a bit."
  • People are equal in terms of reason and mindfulness but not in terms of intelligence. Reason and intelligence are not the same. Very smart people can still be fairly unreasonable. A person who commits thievery may be smart, but he is not reasonable or mindful. The original duty of reason is to know God, whereas the duty and function of intelligence is to develop various methods with which to benefit from natural, material and social mechanisms. From this perspective, God did not create people equally in terms of potential abilities and skills. Without this state of inequality, life would have become monotonous. Sufi Muslims have argued that man is not free in essence even though he seems to be autonomous.
  • Next Saturday's second set of balloting is likely to give another "yes" vote as the voting then will be in districts generally seen as even more sympathetic towards Islamists, and that would mean the constitution should be approved.
  • So it is His Majesty King James may now desire to dispatch another Ambassador to Agra, to petition this new Moghul to grant English trade. If a Petition is to be sent, know that before taking the Throne this Son was called by the name Prince Jadar, though doubtless he is now to be addressed formally as The Moghul. I have as yet been unable to discover whether the Mission of Capt. Hawksworth to Agra, authorized by Your Worship in your Wisdom, met success. (Though his Mission will no longer assist the Company in any instance, since he would not be known to this new Moghul, Jadar.) However, the Hollanders have advised that an English seaman named Hawksworth was taken from an Indian vessel off Malabar one month past, in company with a Moorish woman, by a Frigate of theirs that later was caught by a Storm off the same Malabar Coast. Her mainmast split in that Storm, and the vessel was lost sight of soon after, leaving the Hollanders to lament it may have sunk or gone aground on the Coast, together
  • The mob erupted in a bellow of rage. Although one shilling was a minuscule fine by Saxon standards, the testimony had led them to believe their man would be found in the right, and they swung instantly to their original mood and beyond. They surged forward, pressing Grista and Eadswith against the barrier, while Swann's troops stepped up in response.
  • He took a quick reading of the suns elevation. It had not yet reached its zenith. He made a mental note of the reading and began to wait. Five minutes passedthey seemed hoursand he checked the elevation again. The sun was still climbing, but he knew it would soon reach its highest point.
  • I know, most men would have been freaked enough to at least drop the soap (something heterosexual males are trained to avoid at all costs), but to tell you the truth, I was kind of enjoying all the weirdness. I mean, I've been waiting for shit like this to happen all my life. I blame it on all the episodes of Twilight Zone and the Munsters I watched as a kid.
  • Apparently the whole justice thing was on the fritz right now. It would probably start working again just in time to punish me for whatever bad thing I did next. I tried to work on my homework some more, but my heart wasn't in it, so I just sat at my desk and tried not to look like I was pouting.
  • Then the second packing began. He started with more gifts, these for port officials, mainly silver-trimmed knives and rings set with small inexpensive pearls. He also enclosed several boxed sets of English gold sovereigns, which the Company had requested be distributed as widely as possible, in hopes they would begin to be accepted.
  • After a time the heralds declared Roland the winner, but decreed that since an accident had ended the fight they would not make the customary award of the loser's horse and armor to the winner.
  • "Getting the customer now, there's more of a chance that there's not as deep of a markdown in the 10 days before Christmas," Telsey said. "It's a more profitable sale than it would be two weeks down the road."
  • "I don't know. We always used to do the standard kind of stuff. Presents, eggnog and the Christmas story. Usually Dad made us breakfast Christmas morning and then we'd drive out of the city later in the day and go sledding. I hadn't thought about what it would be like this year."
  • There wasn't a way in the world I could trace down the girl and try to break her story, either. If it wasn't a frame that would be a cinch; but I had absolutely no way of knowing who he'd pick out to work with on the thing. It probably was some little bum that hung around Rucci's joint, but that didn't help; in the little time I'd worked there I'd seen a dozen that would go for larceny like that.
  • Senator Jim Inhofe, a Republican from Oklahoma, questioned the extent to which women would ultimately gain access to front-line combat, saying he doubted there would be a "broad opening."
  • With fantastic bounds and prancings she entered the ring and whirled before her bound and silent captives. With another woman it would have seemed ridiculous--a foolish savage prancing meaninglessly in a whirl of feathers. But that ferocious face glaring out from the billowing mass gave the scene a grim significance. No woman with a face like that could seem ridiculous or like anything except the devil she was.
  • "Germany would be the biggest loser in a euro breakup," he says. With his right hand, he does an emphatic knife chop onto a small round table. "Somehow, we need to save this thing."
  • I couldnt believe it. Not only was hethe guy I had seen the night before - real, but he was in high school. My high school. He was dressed in a hooded sweatshirt and jeans and carried a navy blue backpack. He looked completely normal, hairstyle aside. I never would have guessed that he was fighting monsters the night before had I not seen it myself.
  • Russ glanced at the door, thoughtfully, as if the answer might be etched in its wood. "I dont know. But it must have been him. Who else would want the doors shut?"
  • "Were about halfway there, I think," I said. "At least based on how long Jon thought it would take us to travel. I dont really know."
  • At that moment of emotional tenderness young Nicholas' face, which resembled his father's, affected Pierre so much that when he had kissed the boy he got up quickly, took out his handkerchief, and went to the window. He wished to take leave of Princess Mary, but she would not let him go.
  • A flurry of new polls showed strong support for Obama's position. According to a Wall Street Journal/NBC survey, three-quarters of Americans said they would accept raising taxes on the wealthy to avoid the cliff. Even among Republicans, some 61 percent said they would accept tax increases on high earners.
  • "What are you doing?" Jaxon asked her friend, knowing that she would have to breech the subject of the photos and the gallery appearance subtlety.
  • "Its just a remarkable situation where they can make promises for things but not have to worry about the consequences," Crane said. "It would be like you promising your child that youre going to pay for their college but then knowing youre going to be leaving in two to four years and youre really not responsible for that."
  • Coincidentally, the monster killings in Aizawl started about the same time. In it Haldar said he saw an opportunity for us. He hatched a plan to save me. Through me, he engineered the move of Sapnabhairavi and her companion to a hilltop outside Aizawl - near the very place where the first four monster killings had occurred. Sapnabhairavi and her companion never saw Haldar. He carefully stayed in the background. It was now a matter of waiting, said Haldar, and all the problems would take care of themselves. Sapnabhairavi would never know that I was responsible for the death of her, her unborn child and her companion.
  • However, once they're in the cab, Todd can't resist. He rings both their phones. When they answer in unison, he says, "Nice work guys. Got it all on video. Nice arc on the Pete toss. So, we're awarding you both of Pete's ears. Unfortunately, you blew his fucking tail off. Now, where in Kansas City would you like the body parts delivered?" They flip their phones shut, look in horror at one another and cringe in panic at their discovery.
  • Investors had been selling off Monster shares based on concerns that regulators would crack down on energy drinks makers after a spate of reports and lawsuits alleged the highly-caffeinated products were tied to deaths.
  • "Warm! You'd be as warm, maybe, if you were as pestered as I am. When I pay good money for a good article there should be an end of the business; but it's 'Where are the geese?' and 'Who did you sell the geese to?' and 'What will you take for the geese?' One would think they were the only geese in the world, to hear the fuss that is made over them."
  • In late March 2008, the FLN sought for the parliament to adopt a law guaranteeing themprovisional immunityfrom arrest. This would cover ordinary crimes, but not grave violations of international humanitarian law like war crimes or crimes against humanity . Even though the government has granted this in the past to people, the FLN has been unable to obtain the provisional immunity.
  • Elena. This time it was a woman's voice, tender and caring, that in vaded her head. Dark times have found you, and I wish that I could have been there to teach you myself. Please forgive me for the many days away from you, daughter. I hope you know that I would never have missed a moment with you if I thought I had a choice. I love you more than I ever dreamed that I could love anyone.
  • As the boy and queen entered the temple I stayed outside and my Grandpaw reappeared. "It was I who suggested to Horus to check in on your Mom, for I had not seen her in years." he said, "He reported back about what a great hunter she had become. I could tell that he had become fascinated with her and that something like what happened might occur, but I never thought Horus would get hurt in the process. You have the blood of excellent hunters running through your veins and endless courage and loyalty. I have already heard of your exploits and the favor you have in the human world, but be careful, my son, for these humans have a strange way of rewarding loyalty."
  • Jaxon laid on the floor a moment, hoping the vampire would think he had hurt her a little and come closer. She could feel something inside her shift again. It was the same feeling she had when she fought Rick. She closed her eyes and allowed that feeling to take over.
  • We decided that it was best that no one else know about Ammons wardcarving abilities, so we waited until after everyone else had gone to bed to start fixing the bad wards dad had carved into our house. Since outright replacing the banisters and cabinets would be obvious, Ammon worked really hard on making just enough changes to the existing wards so they became neutralized. He was tempted to try and change them into something good, but he wasnt sure enough of his capabilities to actually go for it. It took several hours each night he was there of sanding on my part and carving on his part to get it done, and even then we rushed through the last night he was there to make sure we got everything.
  • Whereupon he burst out into a long story in German and English, so mixed up that I could not quite understand exactly what he said. Roughly I gathered that long ago, hundreds of years, men had died there and been buried in their graves; but sounds were heard under the clay, and when the graves were opened, men and women were found rosy with life and their mouths red with blood. And so, in haste to save their lives (aye, and their souls! - and here he crossed himself) those who were left fled away to other places, where the living lived and the dead were dead and not - not something. He was evidently afraid to speak the last words. As he proceeded with his narration, he grew more and more excited. It seemed as if his imagination had got hold of him, and he ended in a perfect paroxysm of fear - white-faced, perspiring, trembling, and looking round him as if expecting that some dreadful presence would manifest itself there in the bright sunshine on the open plain.
  • His cell phone chimed again a few moments later. It didnt like being ignored. Steve sighed irritably. It would be dealt with as soon as he made it in to the office. What had happened to the weekend, anyway? How was it possible that two days could pass by in the blink of an eye? Wasnt it just Friday?
  • It was only gradually during his convalescence that Pierre lost the impressions he had become accustomed to during the last few months and got used to the idea that no one would oblige him to go anywhere tomorrow, that no one would deprive him of his warm bed, and that he would be sure to get his dinner, tea, and supper. But for a long time in his dreams he still saw himself in the conditions of captivity. In the same way little by little he came to understand the news he had been told after his rescue, about the death of Prince Andrew, the death of his wife, and the destruction of the French.
  • I tell them about my experience working with people, my communications training, and my marketing qualifications. I tell them about my past and my love of Salt Spring and how I would like to return to the place where I spent many happy days. Im putting my best foot forward, giving it my all, and being genuine at the same time. As I talk I imagine walking through the resort grounds, meeting and hanging out with all the cool people who come to stay in the rustic cottages. "I can see myself there," I tell them, "helping to make it a wonderful, important experience for visitors."
  • "He wants to run and hide," Sara answered, "but what kind of life would that be, always running? I dont want my son to have that kind of life."
  • Without looking away from the video screen, he opened a text editor and fingers poised above the keyboard, considered what he should write. The email would have to sound cryptic, because his imagined recipients would already know of the bomb and plot. He couldn't just say "Guess what? We are bombing Washington on Friday."
  • The man brought us the drinks and I took mine down in a hurry and stood up to go. Joey looked disappointed and said: "Hell, I can't see any reason you can't stick around and tell me all that's happened. After all, we're in the back here and nobody would see you."
  • "I did suspect there was something between you two," said Louis with a sad smile. "The giving of the scarf at my Queen's song contest was not so innocent after all, was it? How long ago that was! Yes, I would never have believed you if you had accused him without proof. He and I quarreled about many things, but I always thought I could depend upon him." He looked at Roland with the eyes of a wounded child. "I trusted him."
  • "Chiron, youre cruelty is maniacal. I cant believe you would begrudge any Elder a mate because of a prophecy." Morgana turned from the table in disgust. "One day, you will get what you give."
  • "(Mehsud) used to work 24 hours a day, tirelessly. But he would also put a gun to anyone's head and kill them for his cause," said a local shopkeeper who has family members involved in the Pakistan Taliban.
  • "Is it not crystal clear, then, comrades, that all the evils of this life of ours spring from the tyranny of human beings? Only get rid of Man, and the produce of our labour would be our own. A1most overnight we could become rich and free. What then must we do? Why, work night and day, body and soul, for the overthrow of the human race! That is my message to you, comrades: Rebellion! I do not know when that Rebellion will come, it might be in a week or in a hundred years, but I know, as surely as I see this straw beneath my feet, that sooner or later justice will be done. Fix your eyes on that, comrades, throughout the short remainder of your lives! And above all, pass on this message of mine to those who come after you, so that future generations shall carry on the struggle until it is victorious.
  • "I understand that, but what I dont understand is why she wanted you to do it. Perhaps you may be able to help us understand why after all these years of coexisting peacefully and supplying government protection to people like you; she would end it without warning and without any apparent reason." Okay, he was definitely angry, and now so was I. How dare he say, "people like you?" He had no reason to talk to me like that.
  • "The Count de Gobignon said we should force the fellahin to build the bridge. I declared that would be unworthy of Christian knights. Just as unworthy as this Greek fire would be, if we were to use it."
  • A footman wanted to come in to clear away something in the room but she would not let him, and having closed the door behind him continued her walk. That morning she had returned to her favorite mood--love of, and delight in, herself. "How charming that Natasha is!" she said again, speaking as some third, collective, male person. "Pretty, a good voice, young, and in nobody's way if only they leave her in peace." But however much they left her in peace she could not now be at peace, and immediately felt this.
  • Throughout the spring and summer they worked a sixty-hour week, and in August Napoleon announced that there would be work on Sunday afternoons as well. This work was strictly voluntary, but any animal who absented himself from it would have his rations reduced by half. Even so, it was found necessary to leave certain tasks undone. The harvest was a little less successful than in the previous year, and two fields which should have been sown with roots in the early summer were not sown because the ploughing had not been completed early enough. It was possible to foresee that the coming winter would be a hard one.
  • I do not want to be trapped by anachronism. However, the Ottomans never believed in centralism. Delegating authority to the periphery was a central Ottoman state principle. The Turkish Republic is totally different. For that reason, the issue of the unitary state should be re-evaluated. The Turkish Republic is probably the first unitary state in the whole of Turkish history. Again venturing towards the trap of anachronism, I would argue that neither the Seljuks nor the Ottomans lived according to an administrative logic like that of the statesmen of the Turkish Republic.
  • He stopped in front of Charlie for a moment and stared the ogre in the eyes. Charlie returned the favor, and the two of them stood locked eyeball to eyeball for a couple of minutes. Finally, the troll smiled. Even for a troll, his teeth seemed sharper than usual. He walked on and stopped in front of the door to our cage. The guards stood at rapt attention, eyes forward, showing remarkable discipline for trolls, although it may have been that they would have rather looked anywhere than make eye contact with this particular troll.
  • Senator James Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican who long ago discredited himself as a serious person by championing junk science on climate change, said on the Senate floor, "This unelected bureaucratic body would pass recommendations that would be forced upon the United States if we were a signatory."
  • Elke wisely retreated. She knew from previous experience not to speak when the boss was in a rage, and she had never seen one quite as bad as this. She met Evas eyes. Both women nodded imperceptibly. Neither of them would ever acknowledge that La Buse had not only been dumped in the bay but that he had been done in by, of all things, an amateur. The American had made fools of them all; humiliated the boss, and stolen his 30 million dollar yacht, leaving them stranded until Larson got back with the helicopter. With Xanders ire raised, anyone foolish enough to mention the name Butler would die screaming.
  • The king spoke up. "We are truly sorry for yer loss. Yer grandparents were respected members of our court." He looked at his wife and shook his head. "I would not have thought to look at the kin of our Scribes for the answer."
  • The Swami explained to the SP what he wanted done. He also asked the SP to make certain other enquiries. The SP, upon listening, looked at him with great puzzlement, but said that the instructions would be attended to with all due haste. The Swami continued. "About tomorrows program. This new victim so soon after the last killing makes me think we have no more time. We should not only go up to the hill to talk to the sadhu, but we should try, through him if he knows, to locate the monster and lure him to where we can destroy him. We will have to stay the night on the hill, and try to take care of this matter once and for all.
  • Nicolette shut her eyes, as blackness seemed to fall around her like a curtain. She felt as if she were an earthenware figure someone had smashed to bits with a hammer. Surely Orlando was now lost to her. Amalric, until he was avenged, would never rest. And how could she and Orlando ever meet, now that Amalric would be watching him, hating him? If the troubadour had escaped death at Mont Segur, it was only death briefly deferred.
  • The handful injured limped back to their positions. They would have to look forward to after the battle to get their wounds dressed. Peter ran up the stairs along the wall and glanced over the side of the castle. He could see silhouettes ghosting about in the forest. Peter was wondering what Benedict meant by that volley. The general wouldnt waste a barrage of arrows for nothing, unless
  • The only difficulty in the way of re-establishing relations with Chloe while retaining the Stone was the explanation of how he had got it. He hardly saw himself saying to her, "I have stolen this from you, and I want to use it. But if you are very nice to me I will not give it to anyone else, though i might make a hundred or two by doing so. I will, that is, buy you with a hundred pounds and the preservation in my own hands of your property." The nearest he got to saying that even to himself was to recollect that she had occasionally, in times of financial stress, jested, half-mockingly, half-grimly, on the amount for which she would sell herself. But he realized that anyone who offered five pounds, or indeed five pence, would stand a better chance than he himself coming with such a bargain. Besides, of course, he didn't want her to sell herself, he wanted her to love him--in exchange for his loss of a hundred pounds and his promise only to use the Stone for his own purposes.
  • "Do you want to see the profiteer?" Valentine said, approaching the hero. Her mother had respected this man, and Valentine decided she would respect him too.
  • Anubis poured us both a glass of wine. Mine was a robust, very dry Chianti and obviously not from my wine stock since the bottle was about two hundred years older than me. His was a white and again, not from my stock. I tasted it, but as a general rule, I dont like white wines. It was pleasant, but not something I would drink.
  • "We need something I can experiment on. Let me see." She grabbed her purse and rifled through it. What could she use? Her lip balm again? Maybe her keys? Just about everything in her purse would suffice.
  • Lazerek looked at him with outright malice."That would be a shame. Since we are talking about it, did you and Tonicus speak of the Swords at all?"
  • "Some woodsman would be sure to see them and give the alarm. They'll cross above and below the fort, out of sight of the sentries. Then others will get in canoes and make straight across for the river wall. As soon as they attack, those hidden in the woods on the east shore will assail the fort from the other sides. They've tried that before, and got the guts shot and hacked out of them. But this time they've got enough women to make a real onslaught of it."
  • This year the country topping everyones list of preferences appears to be Brazil, which is especially interesting since a couple of years ago most people would probably have been hard-pressed to find it on a map. Now, though, weve had two seasons during which Brazilians have flocked to Cappadocia, sparking a mini-rush to pick up the basics of Portuguese. The word is that we can expect even more Brazilian visitors next year, partly in response to the successful export of several Turkish soap operas.
  • "You took an astonishing risk merely to honor the whims of your Hindu dancer, Ambassador." Nadir Sharif had summoned Hawksworth to his reception room at sunset. "Few men here would have done it."
  • One army fled and the other pursued. Beyond Smolensk there were several different roads available for the French, and one would have thought that during their stay of four days they might have learned where the enemy was, might have arranged some more advantageous plan and undertaken something new. But after a four days' halt the mob, with no maneuvers or plans, again began running along the beaten track, neither to the right nor to the left but along the old--the worst--road, through Krasnoe and Orsha.
  • If history had retained the conception of the ancients it would have said that God, to reward or punish his people, gave Napoleon power and directed his will to the fulfillment of the divine ends, and that reply, would have been clear and complete. One might believe or disbelieve in the divine significance of Napoleon, but for anyone believing in it there would have been nothing unintelligible in the history of that period, nor would there have been any contradictions.
  • "Previously they were giving us a date, they said they anticipated rates would stay low through mid-2015.

Yet if the Stone were refused, he seemed to see in the upright and dangerous figure of the Mayor a threat of other action, of the outbreak of the sick and the friends of the sick.
