I had orders to report to Brigadier General Lindsey, and he said to me, "Well, York, I hear you have captured the whole damned German army." And I told him I only had 132.
The acme of judicial distinction means the ability to look a lawyer straight in the eyes for two hours and not hear a damned word he says.john marshall
As a teenager you are at the last stage in your life when you will be happy to hear that the phone is for you.fran lebowitz
It's a warm wind, the west wind, full of birds' cries; I never hear the west wind but tears are in my eyes. For it comes from the west lands, the old brown hills, And April's in the west wind, and daffodils.john masefield
In societies with fewer opportunities for amusement, it was also easier to tell a mere wish from a real desire. If, in order to hear some music, a man has to wait for six months and then walk twenty miles, it is easy to tell whether the words, "I should like to hear some music," mean what they appear to mean, or merely, "At this moment I should like to forget myself." When all he has to do is press a switch, it is more difficult. He may easily come to believe that wishes can come true.wystan hugh auden
Let not Ambition mock their useful toil, Their homely joys, and destiny obscure; Nor Grandeur hear with a disdainful smile, The short and simple annals of the poor.thomas gray
Thou wast not born for death, immortal Bird! No hungry generations tread thee down; The voice I hear this passing night was heard In ancient days by emperor and clown: Perhaps the self-same song that found a path Through the sad heart of Ruth, when, sick for home, She stood in tears amid the alien corn; The same that oft-times hath Charm’d magic casements, opening on the foam Of perilous seas, in faery lands forlorn.john keats
I am afraid I am not in the flight for “aerial navigation”. I was greatly interested in your work with kites; but I have not the smallest molecule of faith in aerial navigation other than ballooning or of expectation of good results from any of the trials we hear of. So you will understand that I would not care to be a member of the aëronautical Society.william thomson
Self-censorship as a result of intimidation or social pressures, sometimes referred to as “political correctness”, constitutes a serious obstacle to the proper functioning of democracy. It is important to hear the views of all persons,including the “silent majority”, and to give heed to the weaker voices.alfred de zayas
hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.jesus christ
'Come all to church, good people,' Oh, noisy bells, be dumb; I hear you, I will come.a. e. housman
Be it granted to me to behold you again in dying, Hills of home! and to hear again the call; hear about the graves of the martyrs the peeweets crying, And hear no more at all.Robert Louis Stevenson
If there is any game in the world that attracts the half- baked theorist more than cricket I have yet to hear of it.Fred (Frederick Sewards) Trueman
With the people, for the people, by the people. I crack up when I hear it; I say, with the handful, for the handful, by the handful, 'cause that's what really happens.fannie lou hamer
Rather than reacting to every risk we hear and see, we should make an effort to discern which ones we can do something about.
No command of art, No toil, can help you hear; Earth's minstrelsy falls clear But on the listening heart.

Only reapers, reaping early In among the bearded barley, hear a song that echoes cheerly From the river winding clearly, Down to towered Camelot.Tennyson
It is time for us to say here in Beijing, and the world to hear, that it is no longer acceptable to discuss women's rights as separate from human rights.
You think this cruel? take it for a rule, No creature smarts so little as a fool. Let peals of laughter,Codrus! round thee break, Thou unconcerned canst hear the mighty crack. Pit, box, and gallery in convulsions hurled, Thou stand'st unshook amidst a bursting world.Alexander Pope
"Whatever my husband's faults may be, it can only aggravate the evil for me to hear them from a stranger's lips."anne brontë
