- David's guys occupy themselves pretending to look through CDs. They have concluded that these two souls are not a serious threat to society or the club and, that left to themselves, would probably spend most of their day playing with electronic toys, eating junk food and smoking cigarettes.
- "You have to come back, Caly. We cannot go on without you." His breath caught. What if she liked this strange new watery world more than she liked him? She looked as pretty as he had remembered her, pink-cheeked and healthy. What if she didn’t want their problems, but the ease of silk and conversation with fine people? He did not know what he would do then.
- The sky grew lighter. The morning air was cool and breezy, a stark contrast to the day’s heat that would follow. Gidas heard birds begin to chirp and looked for them. As the path took him higher the rocks on either side receded and the trees thinned, revealing glimpses of distant jagged peaks, poking majestically from fog-clad bases.
- To get off they would have to pass the endlessly dying man on the front deck. Shanna couldn’t promise. Eventually, after meeting her stony stare for several seconds, Danny sighed and lifted her back onto the ledge.
- "Non-Hindus always want to know ‘why.’ To ‘understand.’ You always seem to believe that words somehow contain all truth. But dharma simply is. It is the air we breathe, the changeless order around us. We’re part of it. Does the earth ask why the monsoons come? Does the seed ask why the sun shines each day? No. It’s dharma. The dharma of the seed is to bear fruit. The dharma of the warrior caste is to do battle. Only feringhi, who live outside our dharma, ask ‘why.’ Truth is not something you ‘understand.’ It’s something you’re part of. It’s something you feel with your being. And when you try to catch it with words, it’s gone. Can the eagle tell you how he flies, Captain Hawksworth, or ‘why"? If he could, he would no longer be an eagle. This is the great wisdom of India. We’ve learned it’s wasted on feringhi, Captain, as I fear it’s now wasted on you."
- The mob halted, shouting their displeasure, while more of the locals came trailing up. It appeared they would soon have several dozen would-be guests.
- "What would I have you do?" She was clenching her teeth. "There is nothing you can do. It is too late. It was already too late when you protested his order. Why did you provoke him so, if you wanted to pay court to me?"
- "They are not immortal in the sense that they can not die, it's closer to vampires, more like they live forever unless someone takes their head with hard, cold steel. Remember we need a demon to create that. That, or another Fey can kill them, but they seem to have trouble reproducing amongst themselves, so they hold the full blood Fey in high regard. Some Fey have been allowed to reproduce with humans to see if the Fey blood would be dominate enough to sustain an immortal life, as opposed to a human's short life span. I think it worked a little, but the halflings were a bit weaker than their full blood kin. They are never allowed to mingle with those of other non-human beings. I don't know why, just that it is strictly forbidden and the consequences of those actions result in death.
- The feel was strange, it was firm like hard rubber with slightly more give than you would expect. I pressed against one of the points of light; it felt no different than the rest of the material. I moved away from the entrance towards the three stone rings on the opposite side of the chamber. They look like wells. They were, the three low stone rings were filled with water.
- Alana's well-maintained anger turned to instant red. Whirling around, she ran down the hall, looking for an asylum to hide before her next class. She stood in the middle of an empty room and gave a Wondrous Spell that would reach the girls in a few minutes. After gaining some composure, she walked out of the room, feeling better. Laughter filled the hallway from the other students and the girls ran past her, being chased by an incredible beast with bulging eyes, hairy chest and a horrible smell. Alana just smiled and walked on.
- "No," she said, calmly. "Popa is digging away from the front, where it's safe." She'd expected that her mother would die, not her father. She'd known that all along, since her mother stepped out the door of the flat talking of heroism. Known it fatalistically and never dwelt on it, never even admitted it. In her mind, though, she'd always seen a future where her father and Trover and she lived together as heroes of this war, which would surely be over soon, and visited her mother's memorial four times a year, the way they did the memorials for the comrade heroes who'd been martyred in the revolution.
- Bluebeard unleashed a guttural roar of rage and unleashed himself into the battle. His surveying had taken but a second, and now he was on the case of the ninja who had so rudely leapt onto his back and dragged him away from the treacherous Boy. He leapt at him with sword drawn and pushed his foe backwards, ever backwards, as the tiny starlet of the ninja enemy struggled to match the ferocious force of the Captain’s full-size stolen scimitar. He could only see the ninja’s eyes; the rest was hidden by the body-length black suit all ninjas wore, which made it impossible for them to be identified. Yet the eyes were enough: the dilated pupils spelled fear and the wrinkled bags told Bluebeard that the ninja was old, past his prime and easy to beat. His foe looked around helplessly for back-up but none was coming; he looked around helplessly for a shadow to hide in, but it was no use. To turn his back for a second would be to welcome death at the hands of an angry pirate’s sword.
- Ben swung around. He could make out a red glimmer in the distance. It disappeared each time the boat moved from the top of a swell, to a trough. Ben glanced at his watch. It was just after 11.30 pm. He secretly admired the skill of the old boatman. He would never have found his way to this island, especially in the increasingly stormy conditions.
- He had expected his men to file silently behind him and follow him wherever, leaving the mutinous threesome alone to nurse their wounded pride. Yet it was his pride which would come to be wounded, for as he reached the front door he realised that nobody had followed him there; everybody was still stationary, looking upon him in disbelief and shock.
- Her hands ran over the cradle, obviously new, as was the rocker and other furnishings. Kate liked the fact that the space had large windows and a view of the gardens. It would be bright on a clear day, and cheerful.
- Ermolov screwed up his eyes and smiled faintly on hearing these words. He understood that for him the storm had blown over, and that Kutuzov would content himself with that hint.
- 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.
- He said major nations would need to minimize corporate dealings with low-taxing jurisdictions, such as Ireland and Bermuda.
- "Eh? What was that?" The dwarf was certain he just caught the human telling a lie. If the door did not open, then there were enchantments in place to prevent any unwanted intruders. They would have been unable to breech the Barrier, so they must be telling lies. The Barrier had been successfully blocking unauthorized entry for centuries. "Then how did ye make it inside? Ye cannot have made it past the door without unlocking it."
- Jian returned his friend’s smile, privately relieved to find his old classmate on duty. Actually, Mykola was much more than just a former classmate; in addition to being one of Jian’s remaining contacts in Crysmir, he was in fact the one man Jian would trust implicitly until the very day he died—although the reason for this was not something he cared to be reminded of.
- I breathed an exasperated sigh. "Me liking him like that would be so complicated. I mean, really, really, really complicated. In a lot of ways he's my best friend, though, so... yeah, maybe I'm a little worried."
- "To name a few. Wyverns and dragons are my main concern, but the others still would pose some threat that we may or may not be equipped to handle. Sirens seem like a good idea as long as they are sent with something else. She’ll be immune to Siren Song, the four of us may also be immune because of the Binding Spell. That would be a bit of good news. Of course, we might not be and that would be really bad. I imagine Chiron has taken both possibilities into account."
- "Very well," the clerk said, hitting buttons, "That would be one hundred and thirty-three thousand nine hundred and eighty-two dollars and forty-two cents."
- Jeremy could already taste the full glory of his vision. He’d been concocting his scheme for weeks, planning all the things he would do as the villainous Dr. Sock. No one could expect the combination of woven fabric and subtle smarts to be so deadly! No one!
- "Yes, we are going," replied Nicholas reluctantly, for today, as he intended to hunt seriously, he did not want to take Natasha and Petya. "We are going, but only wolf hunting: it would be dull for you."
- The sister drew the curtains together again, hoping that she would fall into a doze. Between seven and eight o'clock the doctor came; not hearing any sound, he thought Fantine was asleep, entered softly, and approached the bed on tiptoe; he opened the curtains a little, and, by the light of the taper, he saw Fantine's big eyes gazing at him.
- "If the True Prophet was here to condemn Brenna, they would be speaking up about it." Someone else called from the back. "The fact that they are not, makes me think that putting her to death isn’t in the plan."
- The events of the previous year: the burning of Moscow and the flight from it, the death of Prince Andrew, Natasha's despair, Petya's death, and the old countess' grief fell blow after blow on the old count's head. He seemed to be unable to understand the meaning of all these events, and bowed his old head in a spiritual sense as if expecting and inviting further blows which would finish him. He seemed now frightened and distraught and now unnaturally animated and enterprising.
- The Democratic Party, or PD, had 33 percent support in an ISPO Ricerche Srl poll published Dec. 10, compared with 16 percent for Berlusconi’s People of Liberty and 18 percent for Five Star. The three biggest parties defining themselves as pro- Monti centrists had a combined 8.8 percent. Forty-nine percent of respondents were undecided or said they would abstain. The margin of error was 5 percentage points.
- Lawrence Wright, author of "The Looming Tower", claimed in his book that bin Laden sent $40,000 to the GIA before regretting it as Algerian group's reputation suffered because of its appetite for mass killing during the civil war which would eventually claim up to 200,000 lives.
- "Uh, thanks for the reminder," I didn’t look at him. I was too busy focusing on Cerebus. He had short, almost bristly looking fur that was some color between red and black. Each head was as big as a Suburban and his entire body must have been 50 feet tall. This was accented by the fact that he was longer, closer to 100 feet, not counting his tail. His tail didn’t look like anything special though, it was just a tail covered with fur that seemed unable to wag. It created a u-shape behind his body. Just his toe nails were nearly as tall as I was and attached to massive paws that looked like they would have no trouble stamping down a building.
- There was absolute silence as each of us internalized Sha’s words. What overwhelmed me more than anything was the simplicity of it all and the question – would I remember any of this when I am sent back?
- Personal Responsibility In Delivering Excellence. A bit of an acronym cheat because 'for' would sound much better than 'in', but PRFDE doesn't have quite the same ring to it. (Courtesy Mr Bull, of the England Rugby Union national team coaching staff.)
- It was not hard to follow the sounds, as retching French officers made a unique noise, just as they did when they were surrendering. Jim and Jack walked into the room and looked for the one man who was too stupid to bother to retch. They rightly figured that this man would be the one who would be in charge of the situation and the description of older, unstylishly dressed and fat fit perfectly.
- "Of course I know!" Dr. Sock snapped, staring at his feet. They were touching ground. He liked the ground. He would have preferred to stay on the ground. But now… now he needed the air. The air was the easiest way to get to Ed without alerting him.
- The thought of what was coming filled me with dread, but I shook my head. As scary as all of this was, I knew flying away and never knowing what'd happened would be worse. Alec was probably going to die, and all of the rest of us with him, but if he didn't, if the pack somehow managed to survive the coming crisis, I wanted to be there.
- In the bed in this room lay Mrs. Pentridge's mother, Mrs. Ferguson, who had been paralyzed from the waist downward for the last year. Opinion in the house was silently divided whether it would have been better for her to be taken altogether or not. Mr. Pentridge thought it would be a merciful release for her. Mrs. Pentridge thought it was a merciful blessing that she had been so far spared. Mrs. Ferguson disguised her own opinion, if she had one, and concentrated her energies on making the most of what visitors and what talk she could still have. Doncaster had fallen into what he felt to be a ridiculous habit of showing her his day's work after tea, and was even, half-seriously, trying to teach her his own prejudices about art; not that he allowed himself to call them that. Mrs. Pentridge, who was also in the room, examining pillow-cases, welcomed him as warmly as her mother.
- The reds were on him. In what seemed a swing for the ball, Abul Hasan brought his stick in a wide arc, its hardened crook accurately intersecting Hawksworth’s directly in the middle. Hawksworth felt an uneven shudder pulse through his arm and heard his own stick shatter. The lower half flew to his right, and he watched in dismay as it sailed across the path of Mukarrab Khan’s mount, just as the governor cut inward to block Hawksworth. The hard wood caught the dark stallion directly across its front shins, and the horse stumbled awkwardly. Hawksworth stared at horse and rider dumbly for a moment, as the stallion lost its stride, and he suddenly realized the governor’s horse would fall. And when it did, Mukarrab Khan would be thrown directly below the horses thundering behind them.
- He lifted his hand and waved his men forward. His own horse clattered over the drawbridge first. He gripped the pommel of his saddle hard, so the sudden trembling of his hand would not show. Thank you for this great honor, Louis. I hope to repay you for it.
- "I would not expect it. Although this year’s monsoons are past and the river has returned to normal, there are new sandbanks. Every season they shift, becoming more treacherous. Only those of us who know the river well understand the moods of her sands. I have never seen topiwallah traders in Surat this early in the season." Karim paused, following Hawksworth’s puzzled expression, then continued, with an air of condescension,"Topiwallah is our word meaning ‘men who wear hats.’ We call Christian traders topiwallahs." He fixed Hawksworth squarely. "And we have other names for their priests."
- Mr Bennett had taken over and thoroughly revamped the venerable National Religious Party, which had shrunk to three seats in the outgoing parliament. He also co-opted members of the fading National Union, even further to the right, into his Jewish Home. Pollsters thought Mr Bennett’s newfangled outfit would get as many as
- He would now rise, bathe and cover his naked body with a handmade Naga robe. Inside the long robe he had made a long pocket in which to hide the kukri. He would rub a great deal of emollient on his chest so that the pain from the tumors would be under control, for a while at least. He would gather the bottom portion of the robe up to his knees and get on his bicycle. When he would spot his quarry, he would remove the robe to be fully naked, take the kukri in his hand, and face her.
- "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.
- Unfortunately this was not Aristotle tutoring young Alexander; in this case the sculptor was unworthy of his clay. Defining the universe became the toughest job of Karl’s life. He proceeded, understandably, from the clear and present to the humbling bounds of perception, only to find that, like all men of average intelligence, he was utterly incapable of grasping the concept of infinity, a word introduced by Socrates and blown to pieces by Webster. Yet his damnable persistence kept him at it. It became central to his cause that his little pupil, destined for greatness, fully understand that single, paramount concept. The boy had to be infused with the all-encompassing cognizance that would elevate him, psychologically, above mere bugs.
- "As long as they do something on rates, I am happy to talk to them about anything," Reid said in an interview. Pressed on whether he would refuse to advance a smaller-scale bill if Republicans won’t budge on rates, Reid said, "That’s right."
- "Greg wanted to see how long it would have taken you to notice if we started to walk around in circles. But you took off for the Dragon."
- This year, the UN intends to finish negotiations on Kyoto and also on a second track of the talks known as Long Term Cooperative Action, or LCA, that’s designed to spell out emissions reduction efforts by nations that don’t have Kyoto targets. In its place, it will open a new strand of discussions aimed at drafting a new treaty by 2015 that would come into force by 2020.
- "Present your dirty cheek, sir." I pulled his head down while attempting to kiss the cleanest un-whiskered spot. "You are now family to me, for no brother would have done more than you." His features turned a brilliant scarlet, and we exited to greet our welcomers.
- "I am not entirely sure. It is the mission of half vampires to slay as many vampires as possible. There are few of us, and we eventually die in the line of duty. The rumors are that the oldest one of us lived to be five hundred years old, though he was starting to show significant signs of aging before he died. I would guess that if I were to live to die of old age, I would live to approximately five hundred and fifty to six hundred years old."
- Because they could not understand him all these people assumed that it was useless to talk to the old man; that he would never grasp the profundity of their plans, that he would answer with his phrases (which they thought were mere phrases) about a "golden bridge," about the impossibility of crossing the frontier with a crowd of tatterdemalions, and so forth. They had heard all that before. And all he said--that it was necessary to await provisions, or that the men had no boots--was so simple, while what they proposed was so complicated and clever, that it was evident that he was old and stupid and that they, though not in power, were commanders of genius.
- Jackson’s eyes flickered, the whites showing unnaturally bright. For a moment, Serenity thought he would pass out cold, but then he bolted upright, his eyes darting back and forth, scouring the bedroom.
- I opened the door quietly, hoping that I could sneak past my dad and that maybe he would be distracted like he was the day before. Instead I was greeted immediately by Arvin, who had been sitting anxiously in the living room.
- "I thought I had to try. I knew I would fail, but… still, I’m glad you came in, Dani. When I saw you, I couldn’t even draw my knife."
- The buyback was expected to go well after Greek banks, which hold about 17 billion euros of bonds, announced shortly before a Friday deadline they would take part. Two Cypriot lenders also said they would offer their bonds.
- His bones were gone. Every bone in his body was gone.His arms were like noodles.His head was a sloshy bag, slopping around.He was trying to scream, but his throat would not open up to let the yell out, and his lungs would not expand.His eyes and nose were pressed in and rolled about like water.Strange smacking sounds emitted from his mouth.
- Adding a massive amount of pressure to the fire changed its properties. Connor knew what would happen with the lack of oxygen, Jack didn’t. Looking up at him Jack said "Where did the flame go? It just vanished!"
- I was afraid as I slowly moved towards the pulsating light of Lib. Ambers, pinks, crimsons and golds shimmered in a dance of welcoming anticipation. The moment of contact or connection or whatever you want to call what we do over here was magical – like taping into some eternal inexhaustible energy force of goodness and love. I moved ahead until I was consumed within that light. We stayed like that for a long time, neither of us speaking. I suppose if anyone had been observing us, as I have no doubts there were, they would have seen a beautiful spectacle of vibrating radiance, showering the air of that mountain peak with gentle multi-colored sparks.
- Hysteria clutched at her throat and tears of frustration jumped to her eyes. She rushed back into the pool and down the hole while her mind raced in terrible circles. They were going to die. When hunger, thirst, and the tide forced her out of the hole, the man would drown and she would be captured and tortured to death. Panting and crying she pulled herself back onto the shelf and gathered the limp man into her arms. His presence focused her thoughts against the terror.
- "I think dealing with Ve will end up being the least of our problems, today. Remember though, he feeds off of strong emotions so try to calm down a bit." Caislyn was trying to reassure Jax, but the whole prospect of something "feeding" on her emotions brought a renewed sense of dread to the pit of her stomach. Taking several deep breaths, Jax tried to calm herself, concentrating on keeping her hands still so that Caislyn, nor Ve, would see just how nervous she was by being there. A few moments later, Caislyn reached over and put her hand on Jax's arm, "You do realize that you are shaking the whole couch with your leg don't you?"
- "True, if they had been dealing with Chiron’s madness, we would have, but we would not be giving all our time to it. The shifts would extend to all of us, not just the mated ones."
- If his mobile hadn’t been smashed this afternoon he would have liked nothing better than to tell Julie the whole, incredible, nonsensical story. He had to admit she had a certain knack of reading between the lines and spotting the things that really mattered.
- McAfee said on Saturday he wanted to return to the United States, and Guerra said he had filed a motion that would require Guatemalan authorities to deport him there and not to Belize.
- A change in the trajectory of recovery can only occur when markets expect growth to be faster in the future and adjust their behaviour in the present accordingly. The question is: what sort of change in economic conditions will generate such a shift? I'm sceptical that slow deleveraging can accomplish it; if so, that forseeable healing ought to be priced into expectations now. Something else, not currently reflected in expectations, will be necessary. Surprisingly loose fiscal policy is one option. Surprisingly robust external demand is another. A third, however, is a surprise change in monetary policy. Maybe Washington's elected leaders will arrive at a benign fiscal deal and the way clear of the expectations trap will be open. If not, the Fed will have to decide whether it would rather sacrifice its sacred cows or accept current employment and growth trends as the best the economy can ever hope to do.
- Jack gave my hand a gentle squeeze. "Of course. You're the closest friend I've had in a long time. I would not want to see you get hurt."
- A severe regression would have greatly reduced the continental shelf area, which is the most species-rich part of the sea, and therefore could have been enough to cause a marine mass extinction. However research concludes that this change would have been insufficient to cause the observed level of ammonite extinction. The regression would also have caused climate changes, partly by disrupting winds and ocean currents and partly by reducing the Earth's albedo and therefore increasing global temperatures.
- Willow describes Am Mahmoud's reaction: "At the same moment, Am Mahmoud himself, cleaning his hands with a cloth, stepped between me and the street, screening me from the view of the tourists... the tourists moved on... Am Mahmoud had protected me from exposure and embarrassment as he would an Egyptian girl" (211-212). Though Willow also acknowledges the presence of some desperate, gawking men in Egypt, she more importantly acknowledges and shares with her audience the truth that men in the Middle East are not as they appear in the media. They are human beings and share the same emotions that everyone else experiences. They are protective of their women and have no intention of abusing or oppressing them. They are kind, gentle, and respectful; quite the opposite of violent, angry, and controlling as seen in the media.
- The knight moved like the night and was as silent as one. The men marching behind him followed his example, not breathing a single word. Perhaps it was because they were afraid, that the first word they’d say would be a complaint. After all, they had already walked twenty miles in the brute, brute sun that day.
- The house was now clearly visible against the skyline. The storm had moved away and the moon, although not visible, was gently illuminating white puffy clouds. The wind remained strong and gusty. Once again, advantage and disadvantage. The house was two storied and the lights he had seen were from windows on the top floor. It appeared that there were no guards patrolling the house. Ben initially felt this strange but then concluded that the remoteness of this island in a pitch black ocean, walled by coral reef, had probably given the inhabitants a sense of security. He would now take full advantage of that.
- Other companies making perfumes on an industrial scale for luxury brands, such as IFF, Givaudan and Firmenich, are less concerned about the SCCS proposal because they can rely on synthetic materials and make new perfumes using them but the restrictions, if enforced, would force them to reformulate many of their scents on a scale never seen before.
- Some petitioners were still hung over, shuffling along at a slow trod, mumbling apologies when they bumped into others. One drunk bumped into Gidas. He elbowed the man in the ribs causing the drunk to fall over. Gidas could not understand why someone would even attempt to participate in the Opening if he was not mentally prepared.Many people were so afraid of success they would purposely do anything to ensure their failure. There were probably many people who attended the Day of Opening every year and were turned down every year.He felt no pity for such fools.
- "I would have still fallen in love with you," Jack says as he kisses Emma. "With or without the pills, you’re perfect."
- "I assume from your tone that you think this to be a lie," she frowned, looking over at him. Few would pass off any sort of claim that offered proof to the return of the Gods.
- Amalric shrugged. "One cannot be exact. We lose some men and gain others every day. But I would say we are nearly six thousand knights and ten thousand men on foot."
- Commodities Commodities are products that, in their basic form, are all the same so it makes little difference from whom you buy them. That means that they can have a common market price. You would be unlikely to pay more for iron ore just because it came from a particular mine, for example.
- The CFPB complaint system, required by Dodd-Frank, links federal regulators with the companies in order to find solutions for consumers. Collecting complaints would also let the bureau amass data on the industry as a prelude to issuing proposals for regulation later in the year, the people briefed on its plans said.
- "You have no idea." Sarah admitted with glee, knowing he had already impressed her. But what would happen next she knew not.
- One eyebrow lifting, Camilia shifted Aiden into the crook of her left arm. "Don’t make this harder on yourself Shannon. You wouldn’t want Aiden to get hurt now, would you?" she asked.
- Typical, he thought, it would be the last bloody carriage of the lot, as finally arriving, he pressed the button to open the doors and stepped in out of the biting wind.
- A King, whose only son was fond of martial exercises, had a dream in which he was warned that his son would be killed by a lion. Afraid the dream should prove true, he built for his son a pleasant palace and adorned its walls for his amusement with all kinds of life-sized animals, among which was the picture of a lion. When the young Prince saw this, his grief at being thus confined burst out afresh, and, standing near the lion, he said: "O you most detestable of animals! through a lying dream of my father's, which he saw in his sleep, I am shut up on your account in this palace as if I had been a girl: what shall I now do to you?' With these words he stretched out his hands toward a thorn-tree, meaning to cut a stick from its branches so that he might beat the lion. But one of the tree's prickles pierced his finger and caused great pain and inflammation, so that the young Prince fell down in a fainting fit. A violent fever suddenly set in, from which he died not many days later.
- She ran her hand across the sheets, relishing the softness of the material and imagining how she would sink right into the bed.
- Pierre in his secret soul agreed with the steward that it would be difficult to imagine happier people, and that God only knew what would happen to them when they were free, but he insisted, though reluctantly, on what he thought right. The steward promised to do all in his power to carry out the count's wishes, seeing clearly that not only would the count never be able to find out whether all measures had been taken for the sale of the land and forests and to release them from the Land Bank, but would probably never even inquire and would never know that the newly erected buildings were standing empty and that the serfs continued to give in money and work all that other people's serfs gave--that is to say, all that could be got out of them.
- "Sure," I said. "It means you've got a chief here that knows what it's all about. That's all. Every town is the same. He's playing practical politics, which is something that takes a sense of humor and a strong stomach. He's right; this is a tight little town and he runs it right. A chump in that seat would have this place a mad house in twenty-four hours. Can't you see that?"
- "I would rather another Elder War than run the risk of putting to death a Demon for no reason other than you had a vision." Vishnu spoke up.
- Balashev rode on, supposing from Murat's words that he would very soon be brought before Napoleon himself. But instead of that, at the next village the sentinels of Davout's infantry corps detained him as the pickets of the vanguard had done, and an adjutant of the corps commander, who was fetched, conducted him into the village to Marshal Davout.
- If it had not rained in the night between the 17th and the 18th of June, 1815, the fate of Europe would have been different. A few drops of water, more or less, decided the downfall of Napoleon. All that Providence required in order to make Waterloo the end of Austerlitz was a little more rain, and a cloud traversing the sky out of season sufficed to make a world crumble.
- If visas for highly -skilled workers were the only issue on the table, Democrats and Republicans could solve it fairly quickly. The GOP would need a little time to convince the staunchest conservatives to sign on. Democrats would have to win over unions, but that might not be too difficult because most science and engineering grads work in fields with few union jobs, anyway.
- A better system would require Congress to reauthorize each tax expenditure annually, a reform that would help eliminate wasteful loopholes and simplify the system. Just capping deductions at $25,000, as lawmakers are currently considering doing, isn’t enough. It’s Congress at its least courageous, refusing to ask the harder question of which tax breaks make sense.
- Hi! My name is Amun, but you can call me by my current name, Isabelle. I am currently on life number nine and I can’t say if there will be any more lives after this one, but believe me, a rest would sure be nice. In my other lives I have been either a male or a female cat. I have never been anything else, not a human, or any other kind of animal especially a snake (ugh!) or a dog. As the saying goes cats rule and dogs drool, I really couldn’t see me as a mindless drooling dog. Believe me, I have seen enough of them through my other lives to know that cats are definitely on the top of the chain as far as animals go, and this may include humans as well.
- I think it would be fair to say that Snit’s proposal threw me even more than all the insanity I’d been through in the past few days.
- He would rather die, thought Roland, and take all his men to death with him, than let Amalric call him a coward. War makes men mad.
- These are enormous and disturbing gaps, and the age-related eligibility rules of Medicare and Social Security are simply not geared to effectively deal with them.
