Matilda told such Dreadful Lies, It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes; Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth, Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth, Attempted to Believe Matilda: The effort very nearly killed her.
If there is one place on the face of the earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very Earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India. … For more than 30 centuries, the tree of vision, with all its thousand branches and their millions of twigs, has sprung from this torrid land, the burning womb of the Gods. It renews itself tirelessly showing no signs of decay.romain rolland
Ananke must above all be regarded as cosmic force , that is as the ruling law in the universe ; thus … the super-personal, cosmic significance of "the All" ruled by Ananke as well, can be accepted as certain. It represents in the universe the inviolability of cause and effect and does so as dual essence, as a mythical personage belonging to the oldest theogony or as the Earliest philosophical concept of the mechanics of natural events.
I’m so glad my window looks east into the sun-rising. It’s so splendid to see the morning coming up over those long hills and glowing through those sharp fir tops. It’s new every morning, and I feel as if I washed my very soul in that bath of Earliest sunshine.L. M. Montgomery
My dear pastor, in my tent last night, after a fatiguing day's service, I remembered that I failed to send a contribution for our colored Sunday school.

First in point of time and interest comes the mortgage debt, i.e. the claim for the return of money lent on the security of some tangible object. Such claims are among the Earliest fruits of a commercial civilization, and are nearly always affected the same way, viz. by the deposit or pledge of the security with the creditor, to be redeemed or returned on the payment of the debt.edward jenks
It is my greatest wish to enable our people to live with nothing to envy at the Earliest possible date, and it is my greatest pleasure to work energetically, sharing my joys and sorrows with our people, on the road of translating my wish into reality.kim jong-il
Prosper's Earliest memory was of hearing the enormous Hoover starting up somewhere in the house, brand-new then possibly, anyway unknown to him, an inexplicable noise at once a roar and shriek and coming closer; moving away; closer again, and evidently seeking him out where he lay in bed. Then to find the great gray floor-sucker thing entering his room, manipulated by his grim-faced mother, therefore not dangerous at all, maybe.john crowley
[The right] may never bring prayer back to schools, but it has rescued all manner of rightwing economic nostrums from history’s dustbins. Having rolled back the landmark economic reforms of the sixties (the war on poverty) and those of the thirties (labor law, agricultural price supports, banking regulation), its leaders now turn their guns on the accomplishments of the Earliest years of progressivism (Woodrow Wilson’s estate tax; Theodore Roosevelt’s anti-trust measures). With a little more effort, the backlash may well repeal the entire twentieth century.thomas frank
Women from Earliest times have been used as conveniences of communication with unseen, inaccessible powers, but always in the sense that such exposing of self to dangerous mysteries, such destruction of the understanding as was required to become the slave of unseen powers, did not matter because the communicant was only a woman, in herself an undetermined cipher – a nothing.laura riding
Even in Earliest youth my fondest desire was to understand Nature, and thus to come closer to the truth; a truth that I was unable to discover either at school or in church.viktor schauberger
Yet shall thy grave with rising flow'rs be dressed, And the green turf lie lightly on thy breast; There shall the morn her Earliest tears bestow, There the first roses of the year shall blow.Alexander Pope
Let it rise! let it rise, till it meet the sun in his coming; let the Earliest light of the morning gild it, and the parting day linger and play on its summit.Daniel Webster
I am a tainted wether of the flock, Meetest for death; the weakest kind of fruit Drops Earliest to the ground, and so let me.
The earthquake, however, must be to every one a most impressive event: the earth, considered from our Earliest childhood as the type of solidity, has oscillated like a thin crust beneath our feet; and in seeing the laboured works of man in a moment overthrown, we feel the insignificance of his boasted power.
From the Earliest period of our history this authority has been exercised. The Year-books record instances of such commitments.
It has been a general rule for drawing deeds and other legal documents from the Earliest times, which one is taught when one first becomes a pupil to a conveyancer, never to change the form of words unless you are going to change the meaning, and it would be as well if those who are engaged in the preparation of Acts of Parliament would bear in mind that that is the real principle of construction.
Blackstone considers trial by jury as having been universally established amongst all the northern nations, and so interwoven in their very Constitution, that the Earliest accounts of the one gives us also some traces of the other.
Zoophyta, polyparia, crinoidea , conchifera, and crustacea are the orders of the animal kingdom thus found in the Earliest of earth's sepulchres.
When we come to consider specific characters, we see that a difference exists that, in short, the species and even genera are no longer represented upon earth. More than this, it will be found that the Earliest species comparatively soon gave place to others, and that they are not represented even in the next higher group of rocks.

Of the great religions of history I prefer Buddhism, especially in its Earliest forms because it has had the smallest element of persecution.
If there is one place on the face of the earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very Earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India....For more than 30 centuries, the tree of vision, with all its thousand branches and their millions of twigs, has sprung from this torrid land, the burning womb of the Gods. It renews itself tirelessly showing no signs of decay.
