Aster and Richter Abend in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
I will on thee as on a comet look, A comet, the sad world's ill-boding book; Thy light as luctual and stain'd with woes I'll judge, where penal flames sit mixt and close. But though some think thou shin'st but to restrain Bold storms, and simply dost attend on rain; Yet I know well, and so our sins require, Thou dost but court cold rain, till rain turns fire.Henry Vaughan
Comets encountering these precincts must be perplexed to decide between the two potentates claiming their allegiance, and perhaps on occasions pay their court to each in turns, throwing out tails, as they do so, in all sorts of anomalous and contradictory directions.agnes mary clerke
Hydrogen is a light, odorless gas, which, given enough time, turns into people.edward robert harrison
There various news I heard of love and strife,Of peace and war, health, sickness, death, and life,Of loss and gain, of famine and of store,Of storms at sea, and travels on the shore,Of prodigies, and portents seen in air,Of fires and plagues, and stars with blazing hair,Of turns of fortune, changes in the state,The fall of favourites, projects of the great,Of aid mismanagements, taxations new:All neither wholly false, nor wholly true.Alexander Pope
The reputation of generosity is to be purchased pretty cheap; it does not depend so much upon a man’s general expense, as it does upon his giving handsomely where it is proper to give at all. A man, for instance, who should give a servant four shillings, would pass for covetous, while he who gave him a crown, would be reckoned generous; so that the difference of those two opposite characters, turns upon one shilling.stanhope, philip, 4th earl of chesterfield
To a degree which is difficult to determine, the esoteric impulse in twentieth-century music, literature and the arts reflects calculation. It looks to the flattery of academic and hermeneutic notice. Reciprocally, the academy turns towards that which appears to require its exegetic, cryptographic skills.George Steiner
Waiting turns men into bears in a barn, and women into cats in a sack.robert jordan
With those elegant footwork and gravity-defying turns Kathak opens a fantastical world before a dabbler, who is sure to fall deeply in love with its mesmerising ways.
Notwithstanding all the care and anxiety of the persons who frame Acts of Parliament to guard against every event, it frequently turns out that certain cases were not foreseen.
Relegating conservation to government is like relegating virtue to the Sabbath. turns over to professionals what should be daily work of amateurs .aldo leopold
God passes through the thicket of the world, and wherever his glance falls he turns all things to beauty.
Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.václav havel
Yet true it is, as cow chews cudAnd trees at spring do yield forth bud,Except wind stands as never it stood,It is an ill wind turns none to good.thomas tusser
As long as society tells men to be the salespersons of sex, it is sexist for society to put only men in jail if they sell well. We don’t put other salespersons in jail for buying clients drinks and successfully transforming a “no” into a “maybe” into a “yes.” If the client makes a choice to drink too much and the “yes” turns out to be a bad decision, it is the client who gets fired, not the salesperson.warren farrell
There will be no room, here, for the smug myopia which views American civilization as the final solution to all world problems; which recommends our institutions for universal adoption and turns away with contempt from the serious study of the institutions of peoples whose civilizations may seem to us to be materially less advanced.george f. kennan
How index-learning turns no student pale, Yet holds the eel of science by the tail.Alexander Pope
A man's success in business today turns upon his power of getting people to believe he has something that they want.gerald stanley lee
Here shame dissuades him, there his fear prevails, And each by turns his aching heat assails.ovid
"The high tide!" King Alfred cried. "The high tide and the turn! As a tide turns on the tall grey seas, See how they waver in the trees, How stray their spears, how knock their knees, How wild their watchfires burn!
"Wars don't ennoble men, it turns them into dogs, poisons the soul."
My father, Hugh Everett, III, author of the Many Worlds Theory, was a quiet man during the eighteen or so years I shared a house with him. turns out he was depressed over a sad childhood and then being dismissed as a kook, only later - too late - to be recognized as a genius.hugh everett
Who, doomed to go in company with Pain, And Fear, and Bloodshed, miserable train! turns his necessity to glorious gain.
