"You could spend a lifetime reading in here." "Two lifetimes -- yours and mine."
The book which you are reading aloud is mine, Fidentinus; but, while you read it so badly, it begins to be yours.
Come, sir, is time really so precious? Mine isn't. If yours is, all the more tempting to steal a little.
The worst your malice can, Is but to say the greatest of mankind Has been my slave. The next, but far above him In my esteem, is he whom law calls yours, But whom his love made mine.john dryden
Be sure that you go to the author to get at his meaning, not to find yours.john ruskin
We shall not meet again: over the waveOur ways divide, and yours is straight and endless –But mine is short and crooked to the grave:Yet what of these dark crowds, amid whose flowI battle like a rock, aloof and friendless –Are not their generations, vague and endless,The waves, the strides, the feet on which I go?roy campbell

It is best to let the horse go his way, and pretend it is yours. There is no secret so close as that between a rider and his horse.Robert Smith Surtees
I have made up my mind to like no novels really, but Miss Edgeworth's, yours and my own.Maria Edgeworth
I thought of you as my guardian, Einstein… you taught me that I'm your guardian, too, that I'm Travis's guardian, and he is my guardian and yours. We have a responsibility to stand watch over one another, we are watchers, all of us, watchers, guarding against the darkness. You've taught me that we're all needed, even those who sometimes think we're worthless, plain, and dull.dean r. koontz
I apologize if I've interrupted some exceptionally demanding hippie task, like trying to remember where the glue is on the Zig-Zag paper, but it seems we have yet another problem, not unconnected with this fatality of yours for introducing disaster into every life you touch, however glancingly.thomas pynchon
These American values, this great moral heritage, is shared and lived in my religion as it is in yours. I was taught in my home to honor God and love my neighbor. I saw my father march with Martin Luther King.mitt romney
The tables have turned, yes, the tables have turned with a vengeance! You've come around to my old way of thinking and I to yours like two people exchanging a call on each other at the same time, and each one finding the other one gone out, the door locked against him and no one to answer the bell!tennessee williams
People ask the way to Cold Mountain Roads do not go through Summer arrives yet the ice has not melted Though the sun is out it’s foggy and dim How did I arrive here? My mind and yours are not the same When our minds are one You will be here too
Marry because you have drank with the king, And the king hath so graciously pledged you, You shall no more be called shoemakers. But you and yours to the world's end Shall be called the trade of the gentle craft.
Keen appetite And quick digestion wait on you and yours.john dryden
Never talk of that which is within you:;; God is in us, as well as in you:;: never make a flourish of what is in you; for the fear of God is before our eyes as well as yours, and what we do, we shall have comfort in, in that it is according to the laws of England, the the rules of which we are sworn to observe, and every man will do righteous things as well as you.
And so upon this wise I prayed, Great Spirit, give to me A heaven not so large as yours But large enough for me.
Now in this island of Atlantis there was a great and wonderful empire which had rule over the whole island and several others, and over parts of the continent and, furthermore, the men of Atlantis had subjected the parts of Libya within the columns of Heracles as far as Egypt, and of Europe as far as Tyrrhenia. This vast power, gathered into one, endeavored to subdue at a blow our country and yours and the whole of the region within the straits, and then, Solon, your country shone forth, in the excellence of her virtue and strength, among all mankind.
I am defenseless... strike me down and the power of the dark side will be yours. (pause as Kyle does nothing) I'm sure you haven't forgotten... I'm the one who murdered your father.
My love... is yours eternally... My hand... is nice and warm... I love...
This life of yours which you are living is not merely apiece of this entire existence, but in a certain sense the whole; only this whole is not so constituted that it can be surveyed in one single glance. This, as we know, is what the Brahmins express in that sacred, mystic formula which is yet really so simple and so clear; tat tvam asi, this is you. Or, again, in such words as "I am in the east and the west, I am above and below, I am this entire world."
