Here I am, an old man in a dry month,
Being read to by a boy, waiting for rain.
Why spend a day in the library when you can learn the same thing by working in the laboratory for a month?frank westheimer
I get guilty when I spend money on silly things like clothes and stuff... Having experienced a completely different extreme of wealth, and I don't mean me being poor or rich, I mean knowing that 40 quid that gets spent on a pair of shoes could go a long way for a family in Georgia for a week or even a month, having experienced that, you're a bit more [guilty].katie melua
2.6.<odd>: still a stable kernel, but accept bigger changes leading up to it (timeframe: a month or two). 2.<odd>.x: aim for big changes that may destabilize the kernel for several releases (timeframe: a year or two) <odd>.x.x: Linus went crazy, broke absolutely everything , and rewrote the kernel to be a microkernel using a special message-passing version of Visual Basic. (timeframe: "we expect that he will be released from the mental institution in a decade or two").linus torvalds
The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May.thomas malory
We have an evolutionary revulsion from slime, the site of our biologic origins. Every month, it is woman's fate to face the abyss of time and being, the abyss which is herself.camille paglia
The day may come when the rest of the animal creation may acquire those rights which never could have been witholden from them but by the hand of tyranny. [...] A full-grown horse or dog, is beyond comparison a more rational, as well as a more conversable animal, than an infant of a day or a week or even a month, old. But suppose the case were otherwise, what would it avail? The question is not, Can they reason ?, nor Can they talk ? but, Can they suffer?jeremy bentham
A noise like of a hidden brook In the leafy month of June, That to the sleeping woods all night Singeth a quiet tune.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
As it fell upon a dayIn the merry month of May,Sitting in a pleasant shadeWhich a grove of myrtles made.richard barnfield
Every man will have his own criterion in forming his judgment of others. I depend very much on the effect of affliction. I consider how a man comes out of the furnace; gold will lie for a month in the furnace without losing a grain.richard cecil
If you were to spend a month feeding on the precious promises of God, you would not be going about with your heads hanging down like bulrushes, complaining how poor you are; but you would lift up your heads with confidence, and proclaim the riches of His grace because you could not help it.dwight l. moody
One can always find inflationary models to explain whatever phenomenon is represented by the flavour of the month.joseph silk
I have never passed a more anxious or trying month in my life, but I never felt God so present with me.james hudson taylor
The ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year – and to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn’t happen.winston churchill
None believe in me neither wilt thou. But no matter within the compass of a month thou shalt be free; and more, the laws that have dishonoured thee, and shamed the English name, shall be swept from the statute books. The world is made wrong; kings should go to school to their own laws, at times, and so learn mercy.mark twain
Was not Joseph Smith a money digger? Yes, but it was never a very profitable job for him, as he only got fourteen dollars a month for it.smith, joseph, jr.
Do you pine for the nice days of minix-1.1, when men were men and wrote their own device drivers? […] I can (well, almost) hear you asking yourselves "why?". Hurd will be out in a year (or two, or next month, who knows), and I've already got minix.linus torvalds
A gentleman, nurse, that loves to hear himself talk, and will speak more in a minute than he will stand to in a month.william shakespeare
We must have patience and not lose heart, submitting to the will of God, and striving incessantly, as I have resolved to do, come what may. With God’s help, I am determined to push onward, and by next month I trust to be at our appointed rendezvous. Watch Alva closely, and contrive to join me as arranged.
As it fell upon a day In the merry month of May, Sitting in a pleasant shade Which a grove of myrtles made.

Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November; All the rest have thirty-one Excepting February alone: Which hath but twenty-eight, in fine, Till leap year gives it twenty-nine. Thirty days has September, April, June, and November; All the rest have thirty-one, Except for second month alone: To which we donate twenty-eight, 'Till leap year brings us twenty-nine.
Fourth, eleventh, ninth, and sixth, Thirty days to each affix; Every other thirty-one, Except the second month alone.
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month.
