Bhopal is informally divided into two parts – the Old City and the New Bhopal. The Old City (often referred to in Bhopal as just the 'City') is the one built and developed by the Begums of Bhopal.
Her underlip protruded a little; she had a way of sucking it in that somebody else had told her was awfully fascinating.Beauchamp
Sometimes, I genuinely enjoy having conversations with journalists; enjoying the few moments of intimacy with a stranger is fascinating to me. But once in a while that backfires and you're suddenly reading something that has a bent on it that you didn't feel was in the least bit a part of the conversation that you thought you were having. Then you get overly protective and say very little and then you come out of the hole again.gillian anderson
It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.oscar wilde
Although our intellect always longs for clarity and certainty, our nature often finds uncertainty fascinating.
None who have always been free can understand the terrible fascinating power of the hope of freedom to those who are not free.
Countless generations of students and general readers have been intrigued by this deeply human book, which half reveals and half conceals the fascinating yet enigmatic personality of its author.robert gordis
"Guillory in person is still more shockingly fascinating, the unguarded, free-associating opposite of any cliched Brit- babe."sienna guillory
I thank the Prime Minister for his remarks about me. Debating with him at the Dispatch Box has been exciting, fascinating, fun, an enormous challenge and, from my point of view, wholly unproductive in every sense. I am told that in my time at the Dispatch Box I have asked the Prime Minister 1,118 direct questions, but no one has counted the direct answers—it may not take long.william hague
Prep school, public school, university: these now tedious influences standardize English autobiography, giving the educated Englishman the sad if fascinating appearance of a stuffed bird of sly and beady eye in some old seaside museum. The fixation on school has become a class trait. It manifests itself as a mixture of incurious piety and parlour game.v. s pritchett
He was a confidence-man, pauper, tutor, blackmailer, paedophile, translator – and author of seven novels and a number of short stories. Rolfe was a trickster whose failed life stank to himself as to the few friends whom he had and betrayed. But he was a fascinating figure: a bore, but also a pseudo-Borgian freak whose vindictiveness and paranoia have deservedly become legendary.frederick rolfe
I had never engaged in remote multishrink psychoanalysis on this scale before, so it was a fascinating experience.andrew s. tanenbaum
The story of Jesus is very fascinating. It still has such a tremendous power, even after 2,000 years! We don't really know if he existed as a historical figure.björn ulvaeus
Memory is a fascinating trickster. Words and images have enormous power and can easily displace actual experience over the years.stephen jay gould
Contingency is rich and fascinating; it embodies an exquisite tension between the power of individuals to modify history and the intelligible limits set by laws of nature. The details of individual and species's lives are not mere frills, without power to shape the large-scale course of events, but particulars that can alter entire futures, profoundly and forever.stephen jay gould
We should take comfort in two conjoined features of nature: first, that our world is incredibly strange and therefore supremely fascinating ... second, that however bizarre and arcane our world might be, nature remains potentially comprehensible to the human mind.stephen jay gould
A rare book at once of great importance and wonderful to read.… Gould presents a fascinating historical study of scientific racism, tracing it through monogeny and polygeny, phrenology , recapitulation, and hereditarian IQ theory. He stops at each point to illustrate both the logical inconsistencies of the theories and the prejudicially motivated, albeit unintentional, misuse of data in each case.… A major addition to the scientific literature.stephen jay gould
I find the world and all it contains extremely fascinating. Is this sinful?robert silverberg
I find the past so fascinating. Photographs are strange, almost surreal , almost here yet gone. I slip into thinking what the past must have been like and I enjoy creating that ambience and atmosphere - 1730 to around 1870 is the most interesting period.
I've written a screenplay that is a series of monologues and songs ; they form this sort of human tapestry across time and place. The form is strange, but I find it really fascinating.

For all the participants in this fascinating debate, "Central Europe" was defined, not by geography, but by values. "Central Europe" was, in György Konrád's words, a Weltanschauung , not a Staatsangehörigkeit (i.e., a way of looking at the world rather than a question of citizenship); for Leszek Ko?akowski it was a "culturally connected area"; for Stefan Kaszy?ski a "state of mind"; for Czes?aw Mi?osz "a way of thinking".
A love of books, of holding a book, turning its pages, looking at its pictures, and living its fascinating stories goes hand-in-hand with a love of learning.Laura Bush
One of the most important and fascinating of all computer languages is Lisp (standing for "List Processing"), which was invented by John McCarthy around the time Algol was invented.douglas hofstadter
