(You wouldn't believe the number of people who hang the electric chair painting in the homes, especially if the colour of the canvas matches the curtains.)
Death should be a long, beautiful voyage and limitless vacations of the flesh.tristan tzara
When I look at things, I always see the space they occupy. I always want the space to reappear, to make a comeback, because it's lost space when there's something in it. If I see a chair in a beautiful space, no matter how beautiful the chair is, it can never be as beautiful to me as the plain space.Andy Warhol
Want a towel on a chair In the sand by the sea, Want to look through my shades, And see you there with me.Kenny Chesney
Than Timoleon's arms require,And Tully’s curule chair, and Milton's golden lyre.mark akenside
Plus douce qu'aux enfants la chair des pommes sures,L'eau verte pénétra ma coque de sapin.arthur rimbaud
Sometimes I say that writing a novel is the same as constructing a chair: a person must be able to sit in it, to be balanced on it. If I can produce a great chair, even better. But above all I have to make sure that it has four stable feet.josé saramago
(You wouldn't believe how many people will hang up a picture of an electric chair? especially if it matches the color of their curtains.)Andy Warhol
Et tant que son coeur bat, tant que sa chair palpite, je n'admets pas qu'un être doué de volonté laisse en lui place au désespoir.jules verne
L'amour abstrait ne suffit pas à un homme pauvre et grand, il en veut tous les dévouements... La véritable épouse en cœur, en chair et en os, se laisse traîner là où va celui en qui réside sa vie, sa force, sa gloire, son bonheur.honoré de balzac
The child is not mine as the first was, I cannot sing it to rest, I cannot lift it up fatherly And bliss it upon my breast; Yet it lies in my little one's cradle And sits in my little one's chair, And the light of the heaven she's gone to Transfigures its golden hair.james russell lowell
La chair est triste, hélas! et j'ai lu tous les livres .stéphane mallarmé
You wouldn't want Alan Greenspan to write the instructions for assembling a beach chair.robert orben
By almost universal agreement, the most vague and ineffectual of all Presidents was Millard Fillmore, who succeeded to the office in 1850 upon the death of Zachary Taylor, and spent the next three years demonstrating how the country would have been run if they had just propped Taylor up in a chair with cushions.
There is no flock, however watched and tended, but one dead lamb is there! There is no fireside howsoe'er defended, but has one vacant chair.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
If you use your office as you would a private trust, and the moneys as trust funds, if you faithfully perform your duty, we, the people, may put you in the Presidential chair.
This seems to me to be one of those cases in which the Court is bound to arrive at a conclusion without having any satisfactory means of arriving at it. The only guide I have is this. I am entitled to sit in the testator's chair as he wrote his own will.
It is the things which Ausonius reveals unconsciously that win him liking, not those which he sets out to celebrate with a kind of innocent pomp: not the chair of rhetoric at twenty-five, nor the imperial tutorship in his fifties, nor the consulship at sixty-nine, but that he loved and taught rhetoric all his life, and kept his simplicity.
The editor sat in his sanctum, his countenance furrowed with care, His mind at the bottom of business, his feet at the top of a chair, His chair-arm an elbow supporting, his right hand upholding his head, His eyes on his dusty old table, with different documents spread.will carleton
Is the chair empty? is the sword unsway'd? Is the king dead? the empire unpossess'd?
The chair she sat in, like a burnished throne, Glowed on the marble. See Shakespeare 764:23.
Conformity may give you a quiet life; it may even bring you to a University chair. But all change in history, all advance, comes from the nonconformists. If there had been no trouble-makers, no Dissenters, we should still be living in caves.a. j. p. taylor
