People just showed up and were always made welcome. To stay less than an hour was an insult, and there was always a meal.
The merciless Macdonwald (Worthy to be a rebel, for, to that, The multiplying villainies of nature Do swarm upon him) from the Western Isles Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied; And Fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling, Showed like a rebel's whore: but all's too weak: For brave Macbeth (well he deserves that name) Disdaining Fortune, with his brandish'd steel, Which smoked with bloody execution, Like valour's minion, Carv'd out his passage.
All of these credited for righteousness, going back from Abraham to the first man, could be described as Christians in fact if not in name, without exceeding the truth. For the name means that the Christian, through the knowledge and teaching of Christ, excels in self-control and righteousness, in disciplines and virtue, and in the confession of the one and only God over all, and in all this they Showed no less zeal than we.eusebius of caesarea
When I passed the Chancellor he arose, waved his hand at me, and I waved back at him. I think the writers Showed bad taste in criticizing the man of the hour in Germany.jesse owens
If the resident zoologist of Galaxy X had visited the earth 5 million years ago while making his inventory of inhabited planets in the universe, he would surely have corrected his earlier report that apes Showed more promise than Old World monkeys and noted that monkeys had overcome an original disadvantage to gain domination among primates. (He will confirm this statement after his visit next year but also add a footnote that one species from the ape bush has enjoyed an unusual and unexpected flowering, thus demanding closer monitoring.)stephen jay gould
Sudden and magnificent, the sun's broad golden disc Showed itself over the horizon facing them; and the first rays, shooting across the level water-meadows, took the animals full in the eyes and dazzled them. When they were able to look once more, the Vision had vanished, and the air was full of the carol of birds that hailed the dawn.Kenneth Grahame
But the novels of women were not affected only by the necessarily narrow range of the writer's experience. They Showed, at least in the nineteenth century, another characteristic which may be traced to the writer's sex. In Middlemarch and in Jane Eyre we are conscious not merely of the writer's character, as we are conscious of the character of Charles Dickens, but we are conscious of a woman's presence of someone resenting the treatment of her sex and pleading for its rights.virginia woolf
Based on the metaphysical implications of the Dadaist dogma, [Hans Arp|Arp]’s reliefs between 1916 and 1922 are among the most convincing illustrations of that anti- rationalistic era.. ..Arp Showed the importance of a smile to combat the sophistic theories of the moment. His poems of the same period stripped the word of its rational connotation to attain the most unexpected meaning through alliteration or plain nonsense.
His colours laid so thick on every place, As only Showed the paint, but hid the face.john dryden
It was Sophie who, by the example of her work and her life, both of them bathed in clarity, Showed me the right way. In her world, the high and the low, the light and the dark, the eternal and the ephemeral, are balanced in prefect equilibrium.hans arp
Indiana was really, I suppose, a Democratic State. It has always been put down in the book as a state that might be carried by a close and careful and perfect organization and a great deal of— [from audience: “soap,” in reference to purchased votes, the word being followed by laughter]. I see reporters here, and therefore I will simply say that everybody Showed a great deal of interest in the occasion, and distributed tracts and political documents all through the country.chester a. arthur
We'd seen all the rushes, which we thought very funny, but the premiere audience reaction was cold and so were the reviews. However, the moment it was released it made audiences everywhere laugh like anything, and it Showed that our original reaction had been right. What a relief!fenella fielding
What is so painful about that time is that nothing was disastrous. It was all wrong, ugly, unhappy and coloured with cynicism, but nothing was tragic, there were no moments that could change anything or anybody. From time to time the emotional lightning flashed and Showed a landscape of private misery, and then — we went on dancing.doris lessing
It was Mr. Salt's book, A Plea for Vegetarianism, which Showed me why, apart from hereditary habit, and apart from my adherence to a vow administered to me by my mother, it was right to be a vegetarian. He Showed me why it was a moral duty incumbent on vegetarians not to live upon fellow-animals.henry stephens salt
And when he came to the place where the wild things are, they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and Showed their terrible claws till Max said, "Be still" and tamed them with the magic trick of staring into all their yellow eyes without blinking once. And they were frightened and called him the most wild thing of all and made him king of all wild things.maurice sendak
Only the bad artists of the nineteenth century were frightened by the invention of photography; the good ones all welcomed it and used it. Degas liked it not only because it provided an accurate record, but because the snapshot Showed him a means of escape from the classical rules of design. Through it he learnt to make a composition without the use of formal symmetry.kenneth clark
When I went to the Crash premiere I left before they Showed the scene of me pulling over Thandie Newton in the car. It was too disturbing. It's a character up there, but I still see me.matt dillon
The world has held great Heroes, As history books have Showed; But never a name to go down to fame Compared with that of Toad!Kenneth Grahame
If all hearts were open and all desires known as they would be if people Showed their souls how many gapings, sighings, clenched fists, knotted brows, broad grins, and red eyes should we see in the market-place!thomas hardy
In Tunisia the Americans had to pay a stiff price for their experience, but it brought rich dividends. Even at that time, the American generals Showed themselves to be very advanced in the tactical handling of their forces, although we had to wait until the Patton Army in France to see the most astonishing achievements in mobile warfare.erwin rommel
A flight from London carrying the artist we all used to know as Cat Stevens, now known as Yusuf Islam, was forced to make an emergency landing in Bangor, Maine after his name Showed up on a terrorist no-fly list. I tell you, it's a real success story in the war on terror. You know, we finally got the guy that wrote "Peace Train."cat stevens

I armed her against the censures of the world; Showed her that books were sweet unreproaching companions to the miserable, and that if they could not bring us to enjoy life, they would at least teach us to endure it.Oliver Goldsmith
Among the manuscripts sent by Napoleon I. from the Vatican to Paris was found a copy of the Elements believed to be anterior to Theon's recension . Many variations from Theon's version were noticed therein, but they were not at all important, and Showed that Theon generally made only verbal changes. The defects in the Elements for which Theon was blamed must, therefore, be due to Euclid himself.
We are the Judean People's Front crack suicide squad! Suicide squad, attack! [They stab themselves] That Showed 'em, huh?
Some ask'd how pearls did grow, and where, Then spoke I to my girle, To part her lips, and Showed them there The quarelets of pearl.Robert Herrick
