BlancheVernon occupied her time most usefully in keeping feelings at bay.
The Christmas just before I turned four, my parents bought me a pair of little black skates and the Bay of Quinte was frozen and my two sisters took me out there and held my hands and taught me to skate. Now I don't know if this is true—although it sounds good!—but rumour has it by the end of the day they couldn't keep up with me.bobby hull
But beside it I have planted a green Bay-tree, A sweet Bay, an Olive, and aTurkey Fig, A Fig, an Olive, and a Bay.1929 From a Garden in the Antipodes,'Detail'.
Heaven & earth never agreed better to frame a place for man's habitation; were it fully manured and inhabited by industrious people. Here are mountaines, hils, plaines, valleyes, rivers, and brookes, all running most pleasantly into a faire Bay, compassed but for the mouth, with fruitfull and delightsome land.john smith
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will make a ton of money, Michael Bay will be lauded as the greatest director of our generation, and the accountants at Paramount will have their second collective orgasm in as many months. As for me, I will try desperately not to weep not so much for what the success of a movie like this means to motion pictures, but for the simple fact that I'm going to have to do this all over again in two or three years for Transformers 3 .james berardinelli
The Ganga is the foremost of India ’s seven sacred rivers, winding fifteen hundred miles from the glaciers of Himalayas through twenty nine cities and seventy towns of the northern Indian plains and exiting into the Indian Ocean through the great delta that feeds into the Bay of Bengal on the eastern coast.V. K. Kumra 1995 in p.39 (Aghor Medicine: Pollution, Death, and Healing in Northern India (3 February 2008)])
est was developed from the beginning as a well-organized business enterprise, structured to maximize profits and minimize tax liabilities. Its major corporate arm, Transformational Technologies, is an extreme example of the rationality that pervades some such movements that have as a major goal the maximizing of profit. By 1988, it had trained nearly 400,000 people, all of whom had taken the two-weekend, 60-hour training session, paying a sizable fee ($400 per person) for so doing. est grossed some $30 million dollars in 1981, and it was claimed that one of every nine San Francisco Bay Area college-educated young people had gone through the training.Richardson, James T. (1998). "est (THE FORUM)". in Swatos, Jr., William H.. Encyclopedia of Religion and Society. Walnut Creek, California: AltaMira. pp. 167-168. ISBN 0761989560.
Gwine to run all night, Gwine to run all day, I'll bet my money on de bob-tail nag, Somebody bet on de Bay.1850 'Camptown Races', chorus.
The aesthetic event is something as evident, as immediate, as indefinable as love, the taste of fruit, of water. We feel poetry as we feel the closeness of a woman, or as we feel a mountain or a Bay. If we feel it immediately, why dilute it with other words, which no doubt will be weaker than our feelings?jorge luis borges
Hyenas are slow in their pace, and altogether inactive; I have often seen a few terriers keep them at Bay, and bite them severely by the hind quarters; their jaws, however, are exceedingly strong, and a single bite, without holding on, more than a few seconds, is sufficient to kill a large dog. They stink horribly, make no earths of their own, but lie under rocks, or resort to the earths of wolves, as foxes do to those of badgers, and it is not uncommon to find wolves and hyenas in the same bed of earths.Johnson, Daniel (1827), Sketches of Indian field sports, London, R. Jennings
The punctual tide draws up the Bay, With ripple of wave and hiss of spray.Susan Coolidge, On the Shore.
Let me hear a coyote howl, Or a lonesome hound dog Bay. Back to the heart of those lonesome hills I'm gonna be some day. For Oklahoma I'm yearning.Jack Guthrie/Wava White, For Oklahoma, I'm Yearning
A night-cap deck'd his brows instead of Bay, A cap by night, a stocking all the day.Oliver Goldsmith, description of an Author's Bedchamber, in Citizen of the World, Letter 30. The Author's Club. (1760).
All things that are, Are with more spirit chased than enjoy’d. How like a younker, or a prodigal, The scarfed bark puts from her native Bay, Hugg’d and embraced by the strumpet wind! How like the prodigal doth she return, With over-weather’d ribs and ragged sails, Lean, rent, and beggar’d by the strumpet wind!Gratiano, scene vi
