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
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.
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.
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.
Our passionate adherence to democracy and freedom is based on the spiritual recognition of the Divinity of man. We are not only not communal but we are nationalists and democrats. The Anti-Fascist Front must extend from the English Channel to the Bay of Bengal.nirmal chandra chatterjee
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
Outside America I should hardly be believed if I told how simply, in my experience, Dover Street merged into the Back Bay.mary antin
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
Bring, bring the madding Bay, the drunken vine, The creeping, dirty, courtly Ivy joinAlexander Pope
Thou warden of the western gate, above Manhattan Bay, The fogs of doubt that hid thy face are driven clean away: Thine eyes at last look far and clear, thou liftest high thy hand To spread the light of liberty world-wide for every land.henry van dyke
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.
Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a Bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.william wordsworth
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
"Great Warriors like Mayadunne, Veediya Bandara, Seethawaka Rajasinghe, Vimaladharmasuriya I, Senarath, Rajasinghe II, Nikapitiye Bandara and Edirille Rala who fought the Portuguese to preserve our territorial integrity and kept the Portuguese at Bay despite all odds."dominicus corea
A great work by an Englishman is like a great battle won by England. It is an unfading Bay tree.gerard manley hopkins
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.
The punctual tide draws up the Bay, With ripple of wave and hiss of spray.
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.
A night-cap deck'd his brows instead of Bay, A cap by night, a stocking all the day.
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!
