  • He swiped himself up to the sixth floor and let himself into his room. It was nearly as big as his apartment, and definitely a lot warmer and drier. The sort of place he would have stayed with Belinda, back when they used to take trips together. Not the sort of place he would have chosen for himself, but Belinda thought that staying in a four and a half star hotel was slumming it almost beyond bearability. Still, he thought, at least it meant he wasnt intimidated by the decor. He tried to imagine Liza in a place like this, but he couldnt. Of course, he knew that she probably made deliveries here all the time. And if she did happen to be staying in one of the rooms, he couldnt imagine her being intimidated by the decor. Or by anything else, for that matter.
  • "Oh, if only he would come quicker! I am so afraid it will never be! And, worst of all, I am growing old--that's the thing! There won't then be in me what there is now. But perhaps he'll come today, will come immediately. Perhaps he has come and is sitting in the drawing room. Perhaps he came yesterday and I have forgotten it." She rose, put down the guitar, and went to the drawing room.
  • "I wonder." Lord Arglay looked at the Type before them. "Nothing--or would the stronger will... ? The point is thisYou know the wretched fellow Giles trapped? Well, he willed Of course; they must have persuaded him so far. But he must have willed merely in obedience, in anxiety to please, in a kind of good-feeling--you see-? And at the moment he held a Type." He paused.
  • "To be honest with you, I dont understand why youre still here. Most first timers would have gone back long agolike your Lib. We honestly dont know what the hell you are still doing here."
  • Republican Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina said yesterday that Boehners proposed revenue-raising tax changes would "destroy American Jobs," and urged members of his party to oppose it.
  • I gasped and would have moved backwards if I hadnt already been sitting on the couch. His teeth had grown. They were far longer than any fangs I had ever seen, they were more than an inch long, making it impossible to close his mouth entirely. His nails had grown. His nails were over six inches long, they looked like stiletto knives. Each tip seemed to be razor sharp. His eyes were red, filled with blood, almost no iris or pupil was visible. The worst part was his skin though. It had grown leathery, darker in color. I reached out and touched it. It was tougher than I had thought possible. I tried to pull on it gently, but it didnt move.
  • "Why did I utter those words? It was by some accident I said them.... I need not have said them," he thought. "And then nothing would have happened." He saw the frightened and then infuriated face of the dragoon who dealt the blow, the look of silent, timid reproach that boy in the fur-lined coat had turned upon him. "But I did not do it for my own sake. I was bound to act that way.... The mob, the traitor... the public welfare," thought he.
  • Of the activities that presented themselves to him, army service was the simplest and most familiar. As a general on duty on Kutuzov's staff, he applied himself to business with zeal and perseverance and surprised Kutuzov by his willingness and accuracy in work. Not having found Kuragin in Turkey, Prince Andrew did not think it necessary to rush back to Russia after him, but all the same he knew that however long it might be before he met Kuragin, despite his contempt for him and despite all the proofs he deduced to convince himself that it was not worth stooping to a conflict with him--he knew that when he did meet him he would not be able to resist calling him out, any more than a ravenous man can help snatching at food. And the consciousness that the insult was not yet avenged, that his rancor was still unspent, weighed on his heart and poisoned the artificial tranquillity which he managed to obtain in Turkey by means of restless, plodding, and rather vainglorious and ambitious activity.
  • She struggled for composure. The demonstration would give her the recognition she needed to move forward with her work, but it was clear Bob wanted all the glory for himself.
  • She looked up in bewilderment, holding Eliashas head in her hands as she dropped the lifeless body to the floor. She let the head fall back, and stared at the still form. The eyes that had once twinkled at her, and glowed in the darkness, were dull and glassy. She reached out to close them, then closed her own eyes. This cant be happening. This will change. It always changes. Eliashas life was all around her, in vivid red, not gray, not dreamlike, and if she opened her eyes again she would see it, but it wasnt true, she told herself. Its a lie. Its a dream. Its more gray. Its . . . .
  • At the same time, a higher buyout price would translate into less debt reduction on each bond. Greek bonds rose for a third day, pushing the 10-year yield below 15 percent for the first time since the March debt restructuring. Greeces tender offer runs until 5 p.m. London time on Dec. 7.
  • It flattened its ears and brayed again, then suddenly lurched forward and rose to its feet. Oh shit, Russ knew what would happen a split second before he slipped and fell hard on his backside. The mule tossed its head and stomped further out into the field. Laughter erupted loudly behind him, but only from the children. When he pulled himself to his feet and glanced up he saw that Pillari was busily dismantling the tent, but Currun was watching himand his expression was somewhere between contempt and amusement. Russ wouldnt look in Liselis direction. He self-consciously picked some burs from his jacket, and glowered at the mule.
  • The report which had been circulated that the Austrians had been beaten and that the whole army had surrendered at Ulm proved to be correct. Within half an hour adjutants had been sent in various directions with orders which showed that the Russian troops, who had hitherto been inactive, would also soon have to meet the enemy.
  • That helped a little, my breathing was starting to slow back down, but that was too related to the other reasons we'd moved. I wasn't mentally back in safe territory still. I sought refuge in something even more mundane. Namely the fact that tomorrow I would have to go enroll in school and try to blend in with a bunch of small-town Juniors who've all probably known each other since they could walk.
  • Finally, it was the night of my going away party. People began crowding into the huge ballroom and the adjoining dining rooms, bars, and lounges. I felt most nervous about not knowing how everyone would react. would they be angry with me for not telling them earlier? would this turn into some pity-party and put a complete downer on the rest of the night?
  • The young heir changed his name to Vaine, picked up his fathers reins and went west, buying and selling, cornering and calculating. Hed learned from the old man: Milo made sure he owned a piece of everything. Eventually his teams of agents formed a web over the waking continent, keeping a toe in every seaport, in every major city, on every railway. Wherever the land was fairest, there would the spider drag his web.
  • Jax laughed, "Yeah, well, I tried the first one and it was really weak. I figured I would grab another to keep from having to line up again at the meat market they call a bar." She gestured over to the same creepy vamp that had just hit on Caislyn a few minutes ago. "That particular jerk flashed some fangs at me and told me what hed like to do to me in the back room."
  • The image flashed into Cassiusmind of Llewellyn as he had left him, curls spread out like a crown, one tangled sheet barely covering his modesty. He had been lying on his back, head turned, nose resting against his cupped palm. Cassius fought to stifle the foolish smile the image invoked. "I will ask him if he would be willing to have you to dinner sometime."
  • "Thank you Malachi, you are dismissed." He looked as if he wanted to protest, but decided against it and left. "Alright sir, would you like to join me inside?" she said to Steven. He followed, and she shut the door behind them. Melissa was next, then Mathew, Brittany, and Tyler. While she was interviewing Tyler, Lady Magmilan busted through the door.
  • Starbucks is unusual among these chains in that the royalty fee it charges European units has consistently eaten up most or all of the profits they would otherwise have earned. Other retailers would not comment on why they don't charge higher fees.
  • And beginning with the French Revolution the old inadequately large group was destroyed, as well as the old habits and traditions, and step by step a group was formed of larger dimensions with new customs and traditions, and a man was produced who would stand at the head of the coming movement and bear the responsibility for all that had to be done.
  • "Connor, took the shock head on. I saw how fast he is capable of moving. If Connor did dodge the gun, I or maybe someone else would have been seriously hurt. He took getting shot on purpose." The guy said honestly.
  • He had grown so stout this year that he would have been abnormal had he not been so tall, so broad of limb, and so strong that he carried his bulk with evident ease.
  • Updating the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 in this way would grant an individuals online content the same protection under the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution (freedom from unreasonable search and seizure) that has long been afforded to postal mail, phone calls and documents within a persons home.
  • She didnt need to climb too deep, but she needed to be far enough from the top. Her fingers traced the metal of the ladder, searching for the one thing she prayed would bring everything togethersomething sharp enough to do the job. Serenity ascended; hand over hand, deeper into the pipe and into the dark. She used her feet to search for the next rung, certain at any moment the vampire would fall upon her before she could carry out her plan.
  • Travel through France proves difficult for Darnay. Hostile revolutionaries frequently stop him and question him. Upon his arrival in Paris, the revolutionaries confine him to a prison called La Force. Darnay protests and reminds his jailers of his rights. However, the guard responds that, as an emigrant, Darnaywhom he refers to as Evrmondehas no rights. The guard hands Darnay over to Defarge with the instructions, "In secret." As he is being led away, Darnay converses with the wine merchant. Defarge wonders aloud why Darnay would choose to return to France in the age of "that sharp female newly-born . . . called La Guillotine." Darnay asks Defarge for help, but Defarge refuses. At La Force, Darnay feels he has entered the world of the dead. A fellow prisoner welcomes him to the prison and says that he hopes that Darnay will not be kept "in secret"—the Anglicized form of en secret, meaning solitary confinement. But Darnay has indeed been sentenced to total isolation, and he soon finds himself in a cell measuring "five paces by four and a half."
  • "I do not wish to," the troubadour said. "Your comrades would surely repay me in kind. But if you move I will cut your throat. I shall release you on one condition, that the Cathars are permitted to go to their deaths on their feet like human beings. Give me your word of honor."
  • I ignored Jack the next day. When I had a chance to see him in the light, I saw just how awful he looked. He was so skinny and had cuts and bruises all over his face. He favored his right leg and his left wrist was wrapped up. I felt sorry for him and so badly wanted to spend as much time as I could with him and talk to him about everything, but every time I started to think of what I would say, I would just get angry at him for not considering me a close enough friend to tell me what he was going to be and for putting his selfish desire to kill Mina over my mothers' safety.
  • On the eleventh of July, which was Saturday, the manifesto was received but was not yet in print, and Pierre, who was at the Rostovs', promised to come to dinner next day, Sunday, and bring a copy of the manifesto and appeal, which he would obtain from Count Rostopchin.
  • Democrats, who say failure to raise the debt ceiling would cause catastrophic harm they cant countenance, are preparing to engage in what Representative John Yarmuth called the "same ridiculous pointless debate" as in 2011.
  • 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.
  • "Leeton told me it would kill me," Russ admitted, lowering his hand from his face. He had to squint still. "But I didnt have much of a choice. So here I am." He shrugged, feeling foolish under the Gates calm scrutiny.
  • At the city gates he became mired in the slow crawl of people returning to the city after their days work. The sun was below the horizon now, but light lingered on. He imagined the family must now be making the descent beneath the city into the catacombs. Adriennehow old was she now? Nineteen?–would lead. Once Dolmus had been given over to the land beyond death, she would be Empress. She would be followed by her mother and sister, Valentin if he were around, representatives from the great aura families, and Dolmuspersonal servants. Cassius beckoned a soldier from the gate and the man bowed and made his way over.
  • Seth's mind was racing with possibilities. Meriwyn was the last of the Chattox line. Could it be that Jaxon was Meriwyn's daughter? It would explain why he couldn't find a paper trail on Jaxon before she was adopted. Meriwyn would definitely have the type of power to hide such thing.
  • Amid the general cheer, consumers remain concerned by health-care costs. By a 38 percent to 10 percent margin, poll respondents say they expect to pay more for insurance premiums, co-pays or deductibles. Thirty-seven percent say their costs would remain the same.
  • And it would be difficult to argue that the US is currently clamouring for haggis on the shelves of its superstores. The market for Thurston's haggis - expat Scots, Burns enthusiasts and Highland games attendees - is passionate but somewhat niche.
  • Her next awakening revealed the Sun God Ra was driving his chariot past the mountains in the west and it was getting dark, "Time to hunt!" she thought. If she had known what was coming next, she said she would have stayed in bed! The patrol started out pretty routine as it always does. A few mice trying to slip in by the stables, a few snakes sliding along the bushes near the palace steps, but as she turned the corner towards the granary Isis said she caught the scent of, something.
  • It took me several heartbeats to understand what he was getting at, long seconds in which his face seemed to grow increasingly remote. "No, how could you think that? Why would I possibly want to have you vanish when I've just now finally found out it's you that's been watching over my mom and me since we got here?"
  • "I have seen the princess," she replied. "I heard that they were arranging a match for her with young Rostov. It would be a very good thing for the Rostovs, they are said to be utterly ruined."
  • "A girl cant even walk across the beach without drawing attention to herself," She expounded loudly, "especially from that Matthew Butler!" She said the last line even louder, hoping that Tommy would overhear her. "Did you see him grinning at me as I innocently walked past?"
  • But with luck he would have gotten his hands on those dogs. As they climbed higher, still screened by the wood, Roland looked up and saw that the moon was directly overhead. At the top of the hill he could discern a cluster of stone columns, broken but still graceful, pale as the moonlight itself, rising out of a heap of tumbled stones. In ancient times, Roland knew, the Romans had built their villas here. He saw a low wooden shack huddled in the midst of the marble pillars.
  • It is sad to think that the love of a mother can possess villainous aspects. Little as was the space occupied by Cosette, it seemed to her as though it were taken from her own, and that that little child diminished the air which her daughters breathed. This woman, like many women of her sort, had a load of caresses and a burden of blows and injuries to dispense each day. If she had not had Cosette, it is certain that her daughters, idolized as they were, would have received the whole of it; but the stranger did them the service to divert the blows to herself. Her daughters received nothing but caresses. Cosette could not make a motion which did not draw down upon her head a heavy shower of violent blows and unmerited chastisement. The sweet, feeble being, who should not have understood anything of this world or of God, incessantly punished, scolded, ill-used, beaten, and seeing beside her two little creatures like herself, who lived in a ray of dawn!
  • This is stupid. This is ruinous. And Amalric knows it. And de Sennac and Longsword know it, too, even if Count Robert does not. Oh, God, if only Louis would come riding up and stop them. If only he were here, and not two leagues away.
  • A Hound having started a Hare on the hillside pursued her for some distance, at one time biting her with his teeth as if he would take her life, and at another fawning upon her, as if in play with another dog. The Hare said to him, "I wish you would act sincerely by me, and show yourself in your true colors. If you are a friend, why do you bite me so hard? If an enemy, why do you fawn on me?'
  • He determined to follow the six-rings rule. Six rings, hed been told, was the average time a caller would wait before concluding no one was home.
  • "These tunnels are incomplete. Why would they leave unfinished work? Very undwarflike." The captain snorted with disgust. Once again they were forced to reverse course, returning back to the great cavern.
  • Meanwhile, news of Germany's impending military defeat spread throughout the German armed forces. The threat of mutiny was rife. Admiral Reinhard Scheer and Ludendorff decided to launch a last attempt to restore the "valour" of the German Navy. Knowing the government of Prince Maximilian of Baden would veto any such action, Ludendorff decided not to inform him. Nonetheless, word of the impending assault reached sailors at Kiel. Many, refusing to be part of a naval offensive, which they believed to be suicidal, rebelled and were arrested. Ludendorff took the blame; the Kaiser dismissed him on 26 October. The collapse of the Balkans meant that Germany was about to lose its main supplies of oil and food. Its reserves had been used up, even as U.S. troops kept arriving at the rate of 10,000 per day.
  • These activities led to similar movements in Southern Texas in 1966, where the UFW supported fruit workers in Starr County, Texas, and led a march to Austin, in support of UFW farm workers' rights. In the Midwest, Csar Chavez's movement inspired the founding of two Midwestern independent unions: Obreros Unidos in Wisconsin in 1966, and the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) in Ohio in 1967. Former UFW organizers would also found the Texas Farm Workers Union in 1975.
  • But she acknowledged, indirectly, that there has been a shift in the views of the mainstream of the Labor Party on Israel. "When you have a Labor luminary like Bob Hawke who has been an incredibly strong friend of Israel, who is advocating support for the resolution, when youve got those things happening you have to think of your colleaguesviews. I thought the best way for me to respond to a diversity of views was to announce that we would abstain."
  • He had done this, he was responsible. He should have walked away when he was given the chance. His presence in her life would only bring Serenity pain and yet he pursued her.
  • On reading that letter (she always read her husband's letters) Natasha herself suggested that he should go to Petersburg, though she would feel his absence very acutely. She attributed immense importance to all her husband's intellectual and abstract interests though she did not understand them, and she always dreaded being a hindrance to him in such matters. To Pierre's timid look of inquiry after reading the letter she replied by asking him to go, but to fix a definite date for his return. He was given four weeks' leave of absence.
  • Joy drove her somewhat battered Holden FE sedan out of town and turned north on the Captain Cook Highway. She stopped at Mossman and bought fruit from a road stall. A large brown sedan pulled up on the other side of the road, opposite the fruit stall. The windows were darkly tinted, but that would not attract unnecessary attention in this part of Australia, as most of the vehicles had tinted windows for sun protection. Joy glanced at the large vehicle but then went back to her shopping. She drove further north onto the Mossman Daintree Road and to her home perched on the side of a heavily timbered hill, close to the Coral Sea at Rocky Point. She parked underneath the main deck of the house and gathered her bag and fruit.
  • From there the entry separated into different cultures and how angels were portrayed in each one. It was informative, but Lillie knew that she had to take it all with a grain of salt, seeing as how the first thing that the book had to say about ghosts was that they were the souls of people who had "unfinished business" or "regrets" and said nothing about how it was possible that the souls simply didn't want to move on, which she knew first hand was not the case. She sighed, realizing that she wasn't really any closer to knowing anything about angels than she was when she opened the book. Not only did it not mention the myth that angels could help "restless" souls move on, but the only thing mentioned that she hadn't heard before was that angels could choose to become mortal for no apparent reason at all. Not even fallen angels became mortal. Who would want to be a mortal, roaming this mess of a planet as a fragile being?
  • "No, Im not God, but thank you for the compliment. As to you having been good, I can only say that you were good enough to be here as you are now. If you had been otherwise, then you and I would not be communicating as we are."
  • Prince Andrew understood that this was said of him and that it was Napoleon who said it. He heard the speaker addressed as Sire. But he heard the words as he might have heard the buzzing of a fly. Not only did they not interest him, but he took no notice of them and at once forgot them. His head was burning, he felt himself bleeding to death, and he saw above him the remote, lofty, and everlasting sky. He knew it was Napoleon--his hero--but at that moment Napoleon seemed to him such a small, insignificant creature compared with what was passing now between himself and that lofty infinite sky with the clouds flying over it. At that moment it meant nothing to him who might be standing over him, or what was said of him; he was only glad that people were standing near him and only wished that they would help him and bring him back to life, which seemed to him so beautiful now that he had today learned to understand it so differently. He collected all his strength, to stir and utter a sound. He feebly moved his leg and uttered a weak, sickly groan which aroused his own pity.
  • More 401(k) fee information. Retirement-account participants will receive new quarterly and annual 401(k) statements listing the expense ratios of each investment option and other fees charged to their accounts including commissions, sales charges, and recordkeeping fees, due to new Labor Department regulations enacted in 2012. Retirement savers will also get information showing how their investment returns compare to a benchmark. "If there are lower-fee funds within the fund choices, I would hope that would be an incentive to change within the fund choices," says Michele Clark, a certified financial planner for Clark Hourly Financial Planning in Chesterfield, Mo.
  • "If Melina was working so closely with your parents, don't you think she would have picked up on you being a little more than a witch?" Jaxon thought about that a little. "Maybe not, but just in case, it seems to me that if Melina knew, she was double-crossing your parents already, she had the Seer and no telling what he told her, and God only knows what this Marc Pithview, supposed gallery owner, knows. And Frank saw me do what I did, which means they will probably make him testify too. Seth is in trouble and he's never let us down when we needed help. We need to get there and pull him out. In order to do that, we have to figure out how the hell you teleported before."
  • This unfortunate lapse, the more maddening that it had been a page she had written out some weeks earlier, and before the Stone had preoccupied her mind, was annoying her when she returned that night. For she had rather prided herself on her secretarial efficiency, and Lord Arglay's quite pleasant, but quite firm, criticism of it distressed almost as much as it pleased her. Almost, because she thought as she took off her hat how much worse it would have been if he had pretended that, because of their friendship, it didn't matter. "It was," he had said, "no doubt the prophetic soul of your wide world dreaming on things to come. But don't let it be dreaming too much about the law-makers who are gone, will you? Or let us be quite clear when it is." Chloe kicked herself again and made some coffee.
  • Treading softly, carrying their bows in their hands rather than on their shoulders so they would not get caught on branches, they made their way through underbrush beneath old oaks with broad trunks.
  • That they should have tasted so much, only to lose it all. He found himself aware, for the first time ever, how much he could want, could need, a woman like Shirin beside him. With her, life itself seemed renewed. She was like no other he had ever known: strong, beautiful, self-willed. He had found himself admiring the last most of all, even though he still found it startling. But the love he had known with her in his arms now only made the despair deeper. Nothing was left. Now there was only abiding sorrow, loss beyond healing. She had given him something he had never known, something he realizedfor the first time everhe no longer wanted to live without. He would have taken her place a hundred times over, but even that seemed impossible.
  • Emma gets to her feet. She is startled by a noise off in the direction of the far end of the cave. She cautiously climbs down from the rock, and peeks ahead, looking for any sign or activity. She attempts to cover the glowing moonstone in her shirtit is warm against her body, yet lights her skin up just as brilliantly as before. It is as though contact with it causes her to glow. She hears another noise, the sound of something moving, searching. A noise like a sniffing dog searching for its target draws even closer. Emma thinks about running, yet wonders if that would only give her away completely.
  • Count Rostov's mouth watered with pleasure and he nudged Pierre, but Pierre wanted to speak himself. He pushed forward, feeling stirred, but not yet sure what stirred him or what he would say. Scarcely had he opened his mouth when one of the senators, a man without a tooth in his head, with a shrewd though angry expression, standing near the first speaker, interrupted him. Evidently accustomed to managing debates and to maintaining an argument, he began in low but distinct tones:
  • Tholomyes, once started, would have found some difficulty in stopping, had not a horse fallen down upon the quay just at that moment. The shock caused the cart and the orator to come to a dead halt. It was a Beauceron mare, old and thin, and one fit for the knacker, which was dragging a very heavy cart. On arriving in front of Bombarda's, the worn-out, exhausted beast had refused to proceed any further. This incident attracted a crowd. Hardly had the cursing and indignant carter had time to utter with proper energy the sacramental word, Matin (the jade), backed up with a pitiless cut of the whip, when the jade fell, never to rise again. On hearing the hubbub made by the passersby, Tholomyes' merry auditors turned their heads, and Tholomyes took advantage of the opportunity to bring his allocution to a close with this melancholy strophe:--
  • "Allies have been known to become enemies. If they grow too ambitious. Just who would your frigates, assuming you had them and the trained seamen to man them, be used against? The Portugals? Or against the English eventually?"
  • All the evening Nicholas paid attention to a blue-eyed, plump and pleasing little blonde, the wife of one of the provincial officials. With the naive conviction of young men in a merry mood that other men's wives were created for them, Rostov did not leave the lady's side and treated her husband in a friendly and conspiratorial style, as if, without speaking of it, they knew how capitally Nicholas and the lady would get on together. The husband, however, did not seem to share that conviction and tried to behave morosely with Rostov. But the latter's good-natured naivete was so boundless that sometimes even he involuntarily yielded to Nicholas' good humor. Toward the end of the evening, however, as the wife's face grew more flushed and animated, the husband's became more and more melancholy and solemn, as though there were but a given amount of animation between them and as the wife's share increased the husband's diminished.
  • "Youll meet Jesuits enough in Agra, Captain, at the Moghuls court. Consider this evening a foretaste." Mukarrab Khan tried to smile politely, but there was a strained look in his eyes and he fingered his jeweled ring uncomfortably. "You would favor me by speaking to them."
  • "I do not think that knight is wholly loyal to you, Monseigneur," said Maurice in a low voice. "I would keep an eye on him."
  • "I wondered if it would be," said Adrienne. She frowned. "Apparently, this Betigan is Betigan Sylvanus. Hes our cousin of some sort."
  • The guards snapped to attention again, a sure sign that Snit had returned with my bride to be. I guess I should have expected the unexpected. You'd think by now I would have learned.
  • "I am not a monster. Dont call a thinking man a monster. would you call Caesar a monster? Hannibal? Genghis Khan?"
  • "Bravery is not enough," said Squealer. "Loyalty and obedience are more important. And as to the Battle of the Cowshed, I believe the time will come when we shall find that Snowball's part in it was much exaggerated. Discipline, comrades, iron discipline! That is the watchword for today. One false step, and our enemies would be upon us. Surely, comrades, you do not want Jones back?"
  • All the soldiers experimented with their abilities, hoping the stones would react in some fashion. Rhenyon gazed at the large rocks. He wasnt sure how to apply his woodworking jhorun to this situation, but was willing to try. Pretending the stone was wood, the captain started pressing various spots to see if he could shape the rock to his will. Being composed of solid rock and not wood, the rock naturally refused to cooperate. Pheron inspected his rock, and then the stones neighbors with his nocturnal vision. Nothing. Rhein coaxed a medium-sized lizard out from under one of the stones and had it investigate the area. Nothing. Kern pulled out his sword and watched as it polished itself to a mirror shine, then angled the sword so that the reflected light shone upon the rocks. Nothing. Finally, Darius stepped up, sheepishly looking at his companions, and made the flowers in the area grow to twice their normal height. Picking a few, he laid them on his rock. Again, the rock ignored them.
  • "TJ, we are the best hope. If there had been any other way, Dave would have spared us the pain and danger and told the government long ago. The only reason he is putting himself at risk is that there is no other way to stop the bomb."
  • "He is also Neptunes son, of course. Why else would he be summoned alongside you? He is your half-brother and it warms my heart that you two are as close as you are already."
  • The king took the last swallow of his wine, which was no longer warm. "I would feel much more secure in this decision," he began slowly, delicately setting down his empty, silver-worked goblet, "if another Mithwell heir was to be produced." He gaze flickered to his captain, who lowered his eyes. The king had bestowed upon Broda Lyndon the princess of his choice, his second-born, Antanya, and had made no secret of his displeasure at their continuing childlessness. Of the three matches he had made thus far, he determined that a child of Broda and Antanya would show the most promise; a child that would undoubtedly follow in Brodas footsteps and one day take over his duties as captain, if Jostin did not fall to sickness or injury. For then, the child would instead become king.
  • According to the Congressional Budget Office, if such a credit had been in place in 2006, donations would have increased by $1.5 billion and the cost to the U.S. would have fallen by $2.4 billion.
  • Unlike the two bulky, military types in ill-fitting suits who had come along to play the role of the visible bodyguards, the invisible bodyguards, Joe and Jawid, easily melded into the crowd of SUBIOS revelers. Joe was thin and short statured with straight brown hair that lay flat against his head, giving him a nondescript look. "I look like an ordinary Joe," he would say, laughing.
  • The bedroom was possibly the nicest room I'd ever been in. A movie star or millionaire would have had a hard time topping this place for sheer decadence. The walls were paneled in some kind of rare, doubtlessly expensive imported hardwood.
  • The prime minister has also given himself the leeway in which to stand in the election as the paladin of a new, more sober, and implicitly more responsible, centre-right. If he were to do so, he could well draw to his camp some of the media tycoons more disgruntled followers, notably conservative Catholics and some of the former neo-fascists whom Mr Berlusconi was, until a few days ago, plotting to squeeze out of the PdL. But a Monti candidature would also create an opportunity for Mr Berlusconi to depict all of his adversaries, and not just Mr Monti, as the supporters of what his followers already call "the government of taxes".
  • The journey to the School took one hour walking, which is the way most people traveled it. Gidas had decided to walk as well. The road was on a foothill that climbed steadily into the mountains ending at Akilade. The acceptance would begin at sun up, which was about thirty minutes away.
  • WOLFE: Ultimately, yes, I have to say that I am pleased with the reaction thus far. I just still hope that no one recognizes the name and picks it up for their kids. I would hate to be responsible for anything like that.
  • A Stag asked a Sheep to lend him a measure of wheat, and said that the Wolf would be his surety. The Sheep, fearing some fraud was intended, excused herself, saying, "The Wolf is accustomed to seize what he wants and to run off; and you, too, can quickly outstrip me in your rapid flight. How then shall I be able to find you, when the day of payment comes?'
  • This was his second discussion with Pierce, the person he'd most expected would welcome the chance for adventure, but who now sounded questionable. Only Earl Gephart had jumped at the offer, with surprising alacrity and enthusiasm.
  • The Cathars had to cross a rock-strewn ridge, barely wide enough for two men abreast, that connected their stronghold on the main peak of Mont Segur to the lower peak, where the crusaders had their hastily built siege fort. If any Cathars had spied Roland coming out, by the time they got to this spot, he would be hidden among the boulders farther down the slope. Having no intention of fighting the Cathars, he sheathed his sword. He took his sword belt off and buckled it across his shoulder and chest, so that sword and dagger hung down his back.
  • "But I swear, all we want is to catch a filthy thief and an obnoxious old wizard," insisted the Malusian commander to the guards at the gate. The fact that he told the truth (this time) was irrelevant since cities like Sargasso-by-the-Sea had good reason to be suspicious of the Imperial army. It had a reputation for conquering and pillaging such places, then annexing them into the Empire and forcing the citizenry to pay taxes so the rich leaders back home wouldnt have to. Besides, even with peaceful intentions, thousands of soldiers whod been on the road for a long time would cause havoc if allowed into the bars and brothels in the city. They might have gotten rowdy enough to annoy upper-class city folk. So the guards refused entry and when they saw how many soldiers were behind the vanguard, they called out the entire Sargasso-ian army, which was about the same size as one Imperial legion, for support. A stalemate soon ensued.
  • Another plane came into land, so close the molecules of the iron around her vibrated. She was thankful the place had been silent when she woke up. Being woken by this terrifying noise would have been enough to shatter her mind.
  • "Of course, I am going to go, too," Jack Wolfe says last, "When I came into contact with my father in his world, I did not confront him. I didnt know what was going on. Had I known, I would have taken care of it right then. I need to confront him. Besides, I dont want to be apart from you, Emma, not ever again. I also dont want to live in fear."
  • We decided to ride the horses into town, so that I could pick up the supplies that Thellium had requested. Cedric picked out a small sweet-natured bay mare, a grey that Cedrics father had imported from the west, for me to ride. He said I needed to warm up on an animal that wouldnt be inclined to throw me, and would offer a steady gait. She was a lovely horse. I stroked her soft and silky mane, and felt content. It took no time at all for me to feel comfortable.
  • He was handsome, though shorter than Sebastian and appeared older, in his late-thirties. He hadnt shaved that morninga benefit of not having to workand a distinct shadow lay beneath his skin. Lines fanned around his brown eyes and grey flecked his hair; all signs of aging, all the things Sebastian would never experience.
  • "God damn, keep me locked in a fucking box for years and then suddenly start demanding things from me. Why should I do as you ask? I could just sit here, mute and not tell you anything. Maybe that would teach you."
  • Independent Kenya's first system of education was introduced by British colonists. After Kenya's independence on 12 December 1963, an authority named the Ominde Commission was formed to introduce changes that would reflect the nation's sovereignty. The commission focused on identity and unity, which were critical issues at the time. Changes in the subject content of history and geography were made to reflect national cohesion. Between 1964 and 1985, the 7423 system was adoptedseven years of primary, four years of lower secondary, two years of upper secondary, and three years of university. All schools had a common curriculum.
  • It was Monday, burger night. Tuesdays were better, that was pizza night. Wednesday, fried chicken; Thursday, subs; Friday, burgers again. On the weekend, Mom actually cooked. Russ didnt really care for weekends. Tuesday was the best. Mondays and Fridays were the worst, because wasnt it bad enough that he had to eat lunch at the Burger House already? He used to like burgers, till hed started working there. He often thought of trying to get a job at the Pizza Pantry across town, but worried that if he did, it would ruin his appetite for pizza.
  • The music slammed to a stop and Jim Stalin left the area before the angry crowd could catch up with him. The two of them jumped into the strategically placed Gremlin and drove away from the area towards the place that the so-called plot would be catching up with them next.
  • "I know," Jon said. "Its the buzz all over the town. We all saw you walk in together and one of the gate guards drank a little too much at his noon meal and informed whoever would listen that you were both behind bars."
  • "Why is that selfish? Most people would think you were being quite charitable taking the new girl to the big dance when you could have your pick of anyone in the school and half the females in the state."
  • There is an age-old tradition of biting gold to test its authenticity. Although this is certainly not a professional way of examining gold, the bite test was not to check if the coin was gold (90% gold coins are fairly strong) but to see if the coin was gold plated lead. A lead coin would be very soft and thus teeth marks would result. Fake gold coins were a common problem before 1932 so weighing a coin and also sliding a coin through a "counterfeit detector" slot was common (making a lead coin thicker would add weight thus why slide it through a measured slot). Most establishments (especially US Western saloons) would never accept a gold (or silver) coin of high value before weighing such an item.
  • Corporate pension funds are a significant asset class, representing around $7.3 trillion in defined benefit and defined contribution plans. If corporations were to give pension managers explicit instructions to evaluate ESG performance with traditional scoring, they would doubtless screen out companies whose short-term performance is coming at the risk of longer-term stability. ESG investment analysis would also identify companies that are likelier to outperform over time. As these asset managers begin to see the positive financial returns they can generate from incorporating ESG into their fundamental analysis, they will adopt this approach for the assets they are managing for others. That will help make the investment management industry part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Its happening already, but not quickly enough.
  • "Well, to mention only firewood and fodder, let me inform you. Why, when we were retreating from Sventsyani we dare not touch a stick or a wisp of hay or anything. You see, we were going away, so he would get it all; wasn't it so, your excellency?" and again Timokhin turned to the prince. "But we daren't. In our regiment two officers were court-martialed for that kind of thing. But when his Serenity took command everything became straight forward. Now we see light..."
  • The Coulter Law was a strictly binding price ceiling through its history, mainly for top players such as Ron Todd, John Coleman and Brian Gleeson. In the case of Todd, it led to him moving to the VFA because he was dissatisfied with the pay he could legally get with Collingwood, whilst Coleman and Gleeson could not afford surgery to continue their careers, that they would have been able to have on higher wages.
  • The painter had been busy mixing his colours and getting his brushes ready. He was looking worried, and when he heard Lord Henry's last remark, he glanced at him, hesitated for a moment, and then said, "Harry, I want to finish this picture to-day. would you think it awfully rude of me if I asked you to go away?"
