And by his Side rode loathsome Gluttony, Deforme' d creature, on a filthy swine.Edmund Spenser
A door is what a dog is perpetually on the wrong Side of.ogden nash
Islam lays great emphasis on the social Side of things. Every day, the rich and the poor, the great and the small living in a locality are brought five times in a day in the mosque in the terms of perfect equality of mankind and thereby the foundation of a healthy social relationship is laid and established through prayer. At the end of Ramazan comes the new moon, the crescent as a signal for a mass gathering on the ‘Id day again in perfect equality of mankind which effects the entire Muslim world.muhammad ali jinnah
I always knew children were anti-social. But the children of the West Side – they're savage.Mark Connelly
Whenever the literary German dives into a sentence, that is the last you are going to see of him till he emerges on the other Side of his Atlantic with his verb in his mouth.mark twain
It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. And if the fool, or the pig, are of a different opinion, it is because they only know their own Side of the question. The other party to the comparison knows both sides.
The woman was made of a rib out of the Side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his Side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.matthew henry
When Pearse summoned Cuchulain to his Side, What stalked through the Post Office? What intellect, What calculation, number, measurement, replied? We Irish, born into that ancient sect But thrown upon this filthy modern tide And by its formless spawning fury wrecked, Climb to our proper dark, that we may trace The lineaments of a plummet-measured face.
On my mother's Side I'm Polish-Jewish, and on my father's Side I'm Scottish puffin.tamsin greig
MTV has always given artists a platform to get their stories and music out to their fans and this series reveals the unknown Side of T.I.—one of the world’s greatest artists at the most precarious time in his life.t.i.
You know that prudery is only the other Side of prurience. The words are even on the same page in the dictionary.Isaac Asimov
What makes a date so dreadful is the weight of expectation attached to it. There is every chance that you may meet your soulmate, get married, have children and be buried Side by Side. There is an equal chance that the person you meet will look as if they’ve already been buried for some time.Guy Browning
On either Side of them, as they glided onwards, the rich meadow-grass seemed that morning of a freshness and a greenness unsurpassable. Never had they noticed the roses so vivid, the willow-herb so riotous, the meadow-sweet so odorous and pervading. Then the murmur of the approaching weir began to hold the air, and they felt a consciousness that they were nearing the end, whatever it might be, that surely awaited their expedition.Kenneth Grahame
It was a walled city and the European trading companies settled outSide the fort area all along the river front. The city developed in three phases during the European influence and the British rule: First along the river front, Next on the southern Side of Maidan to railway station and Third after being made the capital of the province of Bihar along the Bailey road, the new capital area.Nancy Nancy
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labour of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the Side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.jean-baptiste say
We are constantly railing against the passions; we ascribe to them all of man’s afflictions, and we forget that they are also the source of all his pleasures … But what provokes me is that only their adverse Side is considered … and yet only passions, and great passions, can raise the soul to great things. Without them there is no sublimity, either in morals or in creativity. Art returns to infancy, and virtue becomes small-minded.Denis Diderot
It is now very clear that techniques of machine-human interfacing, pharmacology of the synthetic variety, all kinds of manipulative techniques, all kinds of data storage, imaging and retrieval techniques– all of this is coalescing toward the potential of a truly demonic or angelic kind of self-imaging of our culture... And the people who are on the demonic Side are fully aware of this and hurrying full-tilt forward with their plans to capture everyone as a 100% believing consumer inSide some kind of a beige furnished fascism that won't even raise a ripple.terence mckenna
These fellows, knowing the extravagant gullibility of the age, set their wits to work in the imagination of improbable possibilities of odd accidents, as they term them; but to a reflecting intellect (like mine," I added, in parenthesis, putting my forefinger unconsciously to the Side of my nose,) "to a contemplative understanding such as I myself possess, it seems evident at once that the marvelous increase of late in these 'odd accidents' is by far the oddest accident of all. For my own part, I intend to believe nothing henceforward that has anything of the 'singular' about it.edgar allan poe
The Aegean sea washes Greece on two sides: first, the Side that faces towards the east and stretches from Sunium, towards the north as far as the Thermaean Gulf and Thessaloniceia, a Macedonian city...; and secondly, the Side that faces towards the south, I mean the Macedonian country, extending from Thessaloniceia as far as the Strymon.
Rights of every kind, which stand upon the foot of usage, gradually receive new strength in point of light and evidence from the continuance of that usage; as it implieth the tacit consent and approbation of every successive age, in which the usage hath prevailed. But when the prerogative hath not only this tacit approbation of all ages, the present as well as the former on its Side, but is recognised, or evidently presupposed, by many Acts of Parliament, I see no legal objection that can be made to it.
