Far out in the ocean, where the water is as blue as the prettiest cornflower, and as clear as crystal, it is very, very deep; so deep, indeed, that no cable could fathom it: many church steeples, piled one upon another, would not reach from the ground beneath to the surface of the water above. There dwell the Sea King and his subjects.
I'll cable Hitler and ask him to shoot around you.
No cord nor cable can so forcibly draw, or hold so fast, as love can do with a twined thread.robert burton
For angling-rod he took a sturdy oake;For line, a cable that in storm ne’er broke;His hooke was such as heads the end of poleTo pluck down house ere fire consumes it whole;The hook was baited with a dragon’s tale,—And then on rock he stood to bob for whale.william davenant

Rarely do I consider the act of seeing a movie to be a chore, but this kind of experience is the exception - Directed By Paul Miller.james berardinelli
Back then "cruel and unusual punishment" meant the rack and burning at the stake both of those things that had been used in pre-Revolutionary America but in more recent rulings it has been taken to mean the absence of cable television and denial of sex-change operations, or just overcrowding in the prisons.tom clancy
The origins and travels of our purchases remain matters of indifference, although to the more imaginative at least a slight dampness at the bottom of a carton, or an obscure code printed along a computer cable, may hint at processes of manufacture and transport nobler and more mysterious, more worthy of wonder and study, than the very goods themselves.Alain de Botton
I signed up for what? I thought I was just ordering cable.jon stewart
For angling-rod he took a sturdy oak; For line, a cable that in storm ne'er broke; His hook was such as heads the end of pole To pluck down house ere fire consumes it whole; This hook was bated with a dragon's tail, And then on rock he stood to bob for whale.
His angle-rod made of a sturdy oak; His line, a cable which in storms ne'er broke; His hook he baited with a dragon's tail, And sat upon a rock, and bobb'd for whale.
Every sinful act is another cord woven into that mighty cable of habit, which binds the spirit to the throne of darkness.
