He commenced a systematic search of the cabin; but his attention was soon riveted by the books which seemed to exert a strange and powerful influence over him, so that he could scarce attend to aught else for the lure of the wondrous puzzle which their purpose presented to him.Among the other books were a primer, some child's readers, numerous picture books, and a great dictionary. All of these he examined, but the pictures caught his fancy most, though the strange little bugs which covered the pages where there were no pictures excited his wonder and deepest thought.
He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.Sir Kingsley Amis
O mighty love! Man is one world, and hath Another to attend him.George Herbert
Her eyes, the glow-worm lend thee, The shooting stars attend thee; And the elves also, Whose little eyes glow, Like the sparks of fire, befriend thee.Robert Herrick
I used to look at older people who bothered to still attend nightclubs and couldn’t help but wonder why. Didn’t they realize how foolish they looked? Of course, now that I’m one of those people myself, I have decided that such rules don’t apply to me.jarvis cocker
It is a lucky thing that newspaper reporters do not attend these meetings. If they did, they would see how little our activities are related to the real needs of society.
He will always see the most beauty whose affections are the warmest and most exercised, whose imagination is the most powerful, and who has most accustomed himself to attend to the objects by which he is surrounded.francis jeffrey
In the study of such events we do well to remember that the hand once nailed to the tree holds the chain that binds the past, the present, and the future. His way is in the sea, His path is in the great waters, and His footsteps are not known. But wisdom marks His plans; truth and justice attend their development, and out of seeming evil He brings triumphant good.john lanahan
A good many inconveniences attend playgoing in any large city, but the greatest of them is usually the play itself.Kenneth Tynan
Come, gentle sleep! attend thy votary's prayer, And, though death's image, to my couch repair; How sweet, though lifeless, yet with life to lie, And, without dying, O how sweet to die!john wolcot
"Our rulers (both here and in Great Britain) will now have leisure to attend to every part of our American polity; and, among other things, to the state of Indians: ... they have been looked upon as untamed and untameable monsters; whom, like the devoted nations around Judea, it was a kind of religion with white men to exterminate. We have treated them with a rigour and severity equally unsuitable to the genius of our government, and the mild spirit of our religion."jonathan boucher
He was a bad acquaintance for a placid, sedentary soul like me, for though he could work like a Trojan when the fit took him, he was never at the same job very long. In the same week he would harass an Under-Secretary about horses for the Army, write voluminously to the press about a gun he had invented for potting aeroplanes, give a fancy-dress ball which he forgot to attend, and get into the semi-final of the racquets championship. I waited daily to see him start a new religion.john buchan
The vice president has two duties. One is to inquire daily as to the health of the president, and the other is to attend the funerals of third world dictators. And neither of those do I find an enjoyable exercise.john mccain
For priority in location, we need to first attend to Zone 1 and Zone 2; these support the household and save the most expense. What is perhaps of greatest importance, and cannot be too highly stressed, is the need to develop very compact systems. ... We can all make a very good four meters square garden, where we may fail to do so in 40 square meters.bill mollison
A resolution to attend theatres or operas is an absolute disqualification for Holy Orders.Samuel Wilberforce
Be prepared mentally for some amount of chaos and failure. Waste and frustration often attend the earliest stages.e. o. wilson
This venerable body of men (the clergy) being separate and set apart from the rest of the people, in order to attend the more closely to the service of Almighty God . . . had formerly much greater privileges, which were abridged at the time of the Reformation on account of the ill-use which had been made of them.
Cease, gentle Maid, cease, cease to grieve, Thy Goddess does thy Pray'rs receive, And Providence will Thee relieve. Those, who on Providence depend, And patiently its Will attend, Shall be rewarded in the End, By Ways and Means least thought upon, That Mortals may be forc'd to own Their Help comes from the Gods alone.
Now, there is a matter of business to attend to- [Puss: The frog king is dead.] His name is- is... (Shrek: What's his name? WHAT'S HIS NAME?) IS-- (starts to cough up and passes out) His name is Arthur. (Shrek: Arthur?) I know...you'll do...what's right...
Her eyes the glow-worm lend thee, The shooting stars attend thee; And the elves also, Whose little eyes glow Like the sparks of fire, befriend thee.Robert Herrick

Oh, doughty sons of Hungary! May all success attend and bless Your warlike ironmongery!Sir W(illiam) S(chwenck) Gilbert
As to the doctrine of the Circles it may briefly be summed up in a single maxim, "attend to your Configuration." Whether political, ecclesiastical, or moral, all their teaching has for its object the improvement of individual and collective Configuration with special reference of course to the Configuration of the Circles, to which all other objects are subordinated. It is the merit of the Circles that they have effectually suppressed those ancient heresies which led men to waste energy and sympathy in the vain belief that conduct depends upon will, effort, training, encouragement, praise, or anything else but Configuration.edwin abbot
