I felt that it was an unnecessary loss of civilian life... We had them beaten. They hadn't enough food, they couldn't do anything.
One of the deep mysteries to me is our logo, the symbol of lust and knowledge, bitten into, all crossed with the colors of the rainbow in the wrong order. You couldn't dream a more appropriate logo: lust, knowledge, hope and anarchy.jean-louis gassée
I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose. I wanted each and every one of them, but choosing one meant losing all the rest, and, as I sat there, unable to decide, the figs began to wrinkle and go black, and, one by one, they plopped to the ground at my feet.Sylvia Plath
Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn't be done.amelia earhart
It couldn't have happened anywhere but in little old New York.o. henry
If you want to get technical about it, Rocky couldn't carry my jockstrap.larry holmes
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
20 years. Well ... that's fair enough. They couldn't have given me a lighter sentence, considering the facts, and I can't complain. I said the sentences must be severe, and I admitted my share of the guilt, so it would be ridiculous if I complained about the punishment.albert speer
After the second Die Hard , Bruce Willis stated he would never do another. He should have stayed firm in his resolve. If quality is any indication (and it may be, with all the available blockbusters), box office returns will be disappointing this time around and, if nothing else, that will do to John McClane what dozens of assorted bad guys couldn't manage: kill him.james berardinelli
I found that there were these incredibly great people at doing certain things, and that you couldn't replace one of these people with 50 average people. They could just do things that no number of average people could do.steve jobs
You may have noticed that Senator Obama's supporters have been saying some pretty nasty things about western Pennsylvania lately. And you know, I couldn't agree with them more.john mccain
Quiet book-learning in monasteries and ethereal music, sonnets and courtly lovethat stuff is all fantasyand veneer? You couldn't afford to let the beauty of the thing seduce you too far or you forgot the truth and the truth was always hard as iron bloody bars.Janice Galloway
Whenever he saw a dollar in another man's hands he took it as a personal grudge if he couldn't take it any other way.O Henry pseudonym of William Sydney Porter
Ole Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise,If we didn't fire our muskets 'til we looked 'em in the eyes.We held our fire 'til we seed their faces well,Then we opened up our squirrel guns an' really gave 'em ...well! Yeah, they ran through the briars an' they ran through the bramblesAn' they ran through the bushes where the rabbits couldn't go.They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'emDown the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.jimmy driftwood
Somebody said that it couldn't be done, but he with a chuckle replied "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one wouldn't say so till he'd tried. He buckled right in with the trace of a grin his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.edgar guest
The Nazi murder squads just wouldn't waste a bullet on a child. I just couldn't process that. I couldn't handle it.natasha kaplinsky
Duran quit in frustration. People were laughing and he couldn't deal with that.Sugar Ray Leonard
If I had remained invisible, the truth would have stayed hidden. I couldn't allow that.
I am, I fully grant, a phenomenon, but not because of any speed in composition. I asked myself the other day, "Who else, on so many issues, has been so right so much of the time?" I couldn't think of anyone.buckley, william f., jr.
I would watch Wizard of Oz , like every day, when I was two. I had a hard time understanding that I couldn't go into the film, because it felt so real to me.zooey deschanel
It was all a matter of hard work and luck, and Ryan didn't mind either of those. No, the stuff that wore you down was the parts where no amount or work seemed to make the difference, where luck simply wasn't there and wasn't coming and you couldn't seem to explain that to someone who had their heart set on the world being the way it was supposed to be, instead of the way it was.michael marshall smith
I couldn't regard myself as personally repulsive. No man can, or, if he ever comes to do so, that is the end of him.
In the High and Far-Off Times the Elephant, O Best Beloved, had no trunk. He had only a blackish, bulgy nose, as big as a boot, that he could wriggle about from side to side; but he couldn't pick up things with it. But there was one Elephant a new Elephant an Elephant's Child who was full of 'satiable curiosity, and that means he asked ever so many questions.
I would watch Wizard of Oz , like every day, when I was two. I had a hard time understanding that I couldn't go into the film, because it felt so real to me.
Kakashi... even though we... finally become friends... I couldn't... finally admit to you Rin... I... to be together with everyone longer.
