Here I am, an old man in a dry month,
Being read to by a boy, waiting for rain.
Since I am coming to that holy room
Where, with Thy choir of saints forevermore,
I shall be made Thy Music; as I come
I tune the instrument here at the door,
And what I must do then, think here before.
Please never say again that I wanted to be rid of Felix, I am getting frantic here ... When I get out I 'want' Felix terribly, but I don't want to take him away from you.gudrun ensslin
"Mariam is never very far, she is here, in these walls they've repainted, in the trees they've planted, in the blankets that keep the children warm, in these pillows and books and pencils. She is in the children's laughter. She is in the verses Aziza recites and in the prayers she mutters when she bows westward. But, mostly, Miriam is in Laila's own heart, where she shines with the bursting radiance of a thousand suns."
For all of us here, for the millions who have sent us, for the whole two billion members of the human family, our land is now, more than ever before, the last best hope on earth. And I know that we can, and I know that we shall began [sic] here the fuller and richer realization of that hope — that promise of a land where all men are truly free and equal, and each man uses his freedom and equality wisely well.hubert humphrey
The more horrible this world (as today, for instance), the more abstract our art, whereas a happy world brings forth an art of the here and now.Paul Klee
The Enlightenment worldview held by Du Bois is ultimately inadequate, and, in many ways, antiquated, for our time. The tragic plight and absurd predicament of Africans here and abroad requires a more profound interpretation of the human condition — one that goes beyond the false dichotomies of expert knowledge vs. mass ignorance, individual autonomy vs. dogmatic authority, and self-mastery vs. intolerant tradition.cornel west
In the popular political imagination we're familiar with the neocons as conniving militarists, masters of intrigue and cabals, graspers for the oil supplies of the world, and all the rest. But here we have them in what I suspect is the truest light: as college kid rubes who head out for a weekend in Vegas, get scammed out of their money by a two-bit hustler on the first night and then get played for fools by a couple hookers who leave them naked and handcuffed to their hotel beds.joshua micah marshall
The popular statement, “From here to Timbuktu”, conjures up images of remote, distant parts of the earth . But Timbuktu is in fact a real city in the west African country of Mali .
What makes the United States great, the reason people wanted to live in the United States, move here still, is because of our ability to innovate.Bill Nye
I had rather than forty shillings, I had my Book of Songs and Sonnets here.william shakespeare
Got my ticket in my hand Gonna cross a lot of sand. Oklahoma here I come!
The dictionary definition of communication ... includes the communication of goods and supplies... But transport of goods is not communication in the sense we are adopting here, and does not raise the same subtle and difficult questions. What "goods" do we exchange when we send messages to one another?
If we cut through here, we'll be alright.
Who's in charge here? [mute soldier thumps breastplate] Where is the air support?
Under the wide and starry sky, Dig the grave and let me lie. Glad did I live and gladly die, And I laid me down with a will. This be the verse you grave for me: here he lies where he longed to be, Home is the sailor, home from sea, And the hunter home from the hill.Robert Louis Stevenson
"It's possible, but not interesting," Lonnrot answered. "You will reply that reality hasn't the slightest need to be of interest. And I'll answer you that reality may avoid the obligation to be interesting, but that hypotheses may not. In the hypothesis you have postulated, chance intervenes largely. here lies a dead rabbi; I should prefer a purely rabbinical explanation; not the imaginary mischances of an imaginary robber."jorge luis borges
here by the baring bough Raking up leaves, Often I ponder how Springtime deceives, I, an old woman now , Raking up leaves.thomas hardy
...In Bengal the British , who had been trading there since 1650s, settled for Calcutta as their base around 1690. here a collection of bungalows which looked like ‘thatched hovels’, a stables , a hospital , a barracks , and a powder magazine could all be found huddled next to the imposing Fort William. The three as yet unpromising settlements of Bombay , Madras , and Calcutta, were eventually to become the power centers of British rule in India.
Look cheerfully upon me. here, love; thou seest how dilgent I am.william shakespeare
If there comes a little thaw, still the air is chill and raw. here and there a patch of snow, dirtier than the ground below, dribbles down a marshy flood; ankle-deep you stick in mud in the meadows while you sing, "This is Spring."
Heralds and statesmen, by your leave, here lies what once was Matthew Prior; The son of Adam and of Eve; Can Bourbon or Nassau go higher?Matthew Prior
