Three classes inhabited the city (Alexandria in Egypt): first the Aegyptian or native stock of people, who were quick-tempered and not inclined to civil life; and secondly the mercenary class, who were severe and numerous and intractable...; and, third, the tribe of the Alexandrians, who also were not distinctly inclined to civil life, and for the same reasons, but still they were better than those others, for even though they were a mixed people, still they were Greeks by origin and mindful of the customs common to the Greeks.strabo
We disagreed with Zinoviev and Kamenev because we knew that the policy of amputation was fraught with great dangers for the Party, that the method of amputation, the method of blood-letting and they demanded blood was dangerous, infectious: today you amputate one limb, tomorrow another, the day after tomorrow a third what will we have left in the Party?joseph stalin
Three poets, in three distant ages born, Greece, Italy, and England did adorn. The first in loftiness of thought surpassed, The next in majesty, in both the last: The force of Nature could no farther go; To make a third, she joined the former two.john dryden
As I give thought to the matter, I find four causes for the apparent misery of old age; first, it withdraws us from active accomplishments; second, it renders the body less powerful; third, it deprives us of almost all forms of enjoyment; fourth, it stands not far from death.cicero
"First, do it. Second, do it well. third, do it well and fast that means you're a professional."

You grow up Latin in this country and you're a third class citizen from the word go, and so you have to deal with everything around you from that point of view and trying to feel entitled.john leguizamo
Narrated Said bin Al-Musaiyab: When the first civil strife (in Islam) took place because of the murder of 'Uthman, it left none of the Badr warriors alive. When the second civil strife, that is the battle of Al-Harra, took place, it left none of the Hudaibiya treaty companions alive. Then the third civil strife took place and it did not subside till it had exhausted all the strength of the people.Narrated by Said bin Al-Musaiyab

One had been dismissed — and subsequently executed — for a foiled assassination attempt on a higher ranking student, a second had been killed in the practice arena, and the third died in his bunk of natural causes — for a dagger in the heart quite naturally ends one's life.r. a. salvatore
Who is this Yorick? you are pleased to ask me. You cannot, I imagine, have looked into his books: execrable I cannot but call them; for I am told that the third and fourth volumes are worse, if possible, than the two first, which, only, I have had the patience to run through. One extenuating circumstance attends his works, that they are too gross to be inflaming.Laurence Sterne
Teachers have three main tasks: first, to train both hemispheres not only the verbal, symbolic, logical left hemisphere, which has always been trained in the traditional education, but also the relational, holistic right hemisphere, which is largely neglected in today's schools; second, to train students to use the cognitive style suited to the tasks at hand; and third, to train students to be able to bring both styles both hemispheres to bear on a problem in an integrated manner.Betty Edwards (1979) The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
In various talk th' instructive hours they past,Who gave the ball, or paid the visit last;One speaks the glory of the British queen,And one describes a charming Indian screen;A third interprets motions, looks, and eyes;At every word a reputation dies.Alexander Pope
There is a natural right that says that when the state asks you for a third of what you earned through back-breaking work, this seems to you a reasonable demand and you give in. If the state asks you for more, or much more, then it is a clear abuse against you and then you try to find evasive ways to make you feel coherent to your intimate sense of morality and it doesn't make you feel ethically guilty.Silvio Berlusconi
Aristocracy has three successive ages, the age of superiorities, the age of privileges, and the age of vanities ; having passed out of the first, it degenerates in the second, and dies away in the third.françois-rené de chateaubriand
Who is the third who walks always beside you When I count, there are only you and I together But when I look ahead up the white road There is always another one walking beside youthomas stearns ("t. s.") eliot
There exists no third principle for the organisation of the economics process which can be rationally chosen to achieve any desirable ends, in addition to either a functioning market in which nobody can conclusively determine how well-off particular groups or individuals will be, or a central direction where a group organised for power determines it.friedrich hayek
But there was no harshness in the eyes which, looking at the world from under their tawny eyebrows, gave the impression of a man ever alert to greet a redeeming instinct in others but often disappointed. He lived at a little distance from his body, regarding his own acts with doubtful side-glances. He had an odd autobiographical habit which led him to compose in his mind from time to time a short sentence about himself containing a subject in the third person and a predicate in the past tense.james joyce
Three Silences there are: the first of speech, The second of desire, the third of thought; This is the lore a Spanish monk, distraught With dreams and visions, was the first to teach.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The third argument, enclosing and defending the other two, consists in the development of those principles of logic according to which the humble argument is the first stage of a scientific inquiry into the origin of the three Universes, but of an inquiry which produces, not merely scientific belief, which is always provisional, but also a living, practical belief, logically justified in crossing the Rubicon with all the freightage of eternity.charles sanders peirce
The reason Social Security is in big trouble is we don't have enough workers to support the retirees. Well, a third of all the young people in America are not in America today because of abortion, because one in three pregnancies end in abortion.rick santorum
The third peculiarity of aerial warfare was that it was at once enourmously destructive and entirely indecisive.h. g. (herbert george) wells

Our music has sprung from the patient, incessant, and progressive penetration into the law of resonance, that is to say, from the successive exploitation of the octave , the fifth and the fourth (ninth to twelfth century), the third (thirteenth to sixteenth century), the seventh (seventeenth and eighteenth century), the major ninth , the augmented fifth , and the perfect eleventh (nineteenth and twentieth centuries) . . . . this evolution . . . . constitutes, at the same time, the only true justification of the musical art.The Evolution of Music, Alfredo Casella, quoted in Miller, Horace Alden (1930). New Harmonic Devices, p.96.

A theory has only the alternative of being right or wrong. A model has a third possibility: it may be right, but irrelevant.Manfred Eigen (1973: 618), quoted in: Robert Gibbons, ?John Roberts (2012) The Handbook of Organizational Economics p. 188
I used to think that prayer should have the first place and teaching the second. I now feel that it would be truer to give prayer the first, second and third place, and teaching the fourth.1922 Source: Geraldine Taylor. Behind the Ranges: The Life-changing Story of J.O. Fraser.
