In the world's audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight.
There is no more sombre enemy of good art than the pram in the hall.cyril connolly
I feel like one who treads alone Some banquet hall deserted, Whose lights are fled, whose garlands dead, And all but he departed.thomas moore
How gracious those dews of solace that over my senses fall At the clink of the ice in the pitcher the boy brings up the hall.Eugene Field
Where in venerable rows Widely waving oaks enclose The moat of yonder antique hall, Swarm the rooks with clamorous call; And, to the toils of nature true, Wreath their capacious nests anew.thomas warton
As always, Canada will now bury its war dead, just as the rest of the world, as always, will forget its sacrifice, just as it always forgets nearly everything Canada ever does. It seems that Canada's historic mission is to come to the selfless aid both of its friends and of complete strangers, and then, once the crisis is over, to be well and truly ignored. Canada is the perpetual wallflower that stands on the edge of the hall, waiting for someone to come and ask her for a dance.
You are invited to come to see the Earth turn, tomorrow, from three to five, at Meridian hall of the Paris Observatory.léon foucault
Death is not soft-mouthed, vague-footed, nearby. It is in the hall.Harold Brodkey
The way to go to the circus, however, is with someone who has seen perhaps one theatrical performance before in his life and that in the High School hall. ... The scales of sophistication are struck from your eyes and you see in the circus a gathering of men and women who are able to do things as a matter of course which you couldn’t do if your life depended on it.robert benchley
Car crime's low, gun crime's lower,The town hall band CD, it's a grower,you never hear of folk getting knocked on the bonce,although there was a drive-by shouting once,but there's a brass band everywhere,and I don't drive so I don't care,and as a nightingale sang in Berkeley Square,what is Chatteris if you're not there?nigel blackwell
And dar'st thou thenTo beard the lion in his den,The Douglas in his hall?walter scott
How some men creep in skittish Fortune's hall, While others play the idiots in her eyes!william shakespeare
His lordship may compel us to be equal upstairs, but there will never be equality in the servants' hall.j. m. barrie
Somewhat back from the village street Stands the old-fashion'd country seat, Across its antique portico Tall poplar-trees their shadows throw; And from its station in the hall An ancient time-piece says to all, "Forever! never! Never forever!"Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
And dar'st thou then To beard the lion in his den, The Douglas in his hall?walter scott
I hope the Chancery will not repeal an Act of Parliament. Waste in the house is waste in the curtilage; and waste in the hall is waste in the whole house.
I took the wren's nest; Heaven forgive me! Its merry architects so small Had scarcely finished their wee hall, That, empty still, and neat and fair, Hung idly in the summer air.
Twenty-eight years ago, I created my first game on an Apple II in my bedroom closet at a time when the interactive entertainment industry was taking its first baby steps. Today the games business has grown to a multi-billion dollar industry and we are just at the tip of the iceberg. I'm thrilled to have been a part of this successful journey and I'm extremely honored by the Academy's hall of Fame induction.richard garriott
There was Riley pushing it, shoving it, shushing itHogan, Logan and ev'ryone in town lined upAttacking it and shoving it and smacking itThey might as well have tried to push the Town hall down.The donkey was eyeing them,Openly defying themWinking, blinking and twisting out of place,Riley reversing it,Ev'rybody cursing itThe day Delaney's donkey ran the half mile race.william hargreaves
All these relics gave... Thornfield hall the aspect of a home of the past: a shrine to memory. I liked the hush, the gloom, the quaintness of these retreats in the day; but I by no means coveted a night's repose on one of those wide and heavy beds: shut in, some of them, with doors of oak; shaded, others, with wrought old-English hangings crusted with thick work, portraying effigies of strange flowers, and stranger birds, and strangest human beings, all which would have looked strange, indeed, by the pallid gleam of moonlight.charlotte brontë
Woody Allen says at the end of Annie hall that we’re always trying to get things to come out perfect in art because it’s so difficult in real life [...] if we can accept Allen’s as a definition of art, then sabermetrics is absolutely an art. And, just as Kalkman notes, it’s an art whose practitioners are bent on seeing justice done in baseball, if nowhere else.carson cistulli
For the Judges of the Court I feel the most sincere respect, esteem and affection. Never have there presided in Westminster hall magistrates more devotedly anxious to perform in a satisfactory manner the duties of their high office.
If it were a doubtful point how the statute should be construed, I must consider myself as bound by the construction it has already received in two Courts in Westminster hall
