Mr. Manners he's not. [...] Dr. Phil issues counsel as marching orders, and despite fiery disapproval from the chattering classes and many in the mental health community, his readers, viewers and even chagrined on-air guests love him for it.
We desperately need to recognise that we are the guests, not the masters, of nature and adopt a new paradigm for development, based on the costs and benefits to all people, and bound by the limits of nature herself rather than the limits of technology and consumerism.mikhail gorbachev
Unbidden guests Are often welcomest when they are gone.william shakespeare
To the guests that must go, bid God's speed and brush away all traces of their steps.rabindranath tagore
One might well say that mankind is divisible into two great classes: hosts and guests.
And whenThyself with shining foot shall pass Among the guests star-scattered on the grass, And in thy joyous errand reach the spot Where I made oneturn down an empty glass!Edward Fitzgerald
I don't get this fashion for happy funerals. He said he wanted all his mates to be in a good mood and smile, and this is a very fashionable idea, that when you die, it's supposed to be a celebration and joyous and everyone laughing, but I want people's lives torn apart when I go. I want to be embalmed and brought out when we have guests.jeremy hardy
Lange was hosting a reception at Vogel House for the Chinese politician Hu Yao Bang when the lights went out. Lange immediately asked all the guests to raise their hands because "many hands make light work." The audience complied, and to their amazement the lights immediately came back on. Lange was invited to visit China.david lange
When youth was lord of my unchallenged fate,And time seemed but the vassal of my will,I entertained certain guests of state—The great of older days.silas weir mitchell
See, I thought that Jay has had too many high class, very hoity-toity guests on this week. And I wanted to bring everything down a notch or two.megan mullally
I never actually got around to taping conversations with my guests, but there are a lot of things you can learn from a man like Nixon.pierre trudeau
Sindbad the Sailor had no quarrel with the caliph's project, though he'd never before set sail with any motive nobler than restless greed. As he knew from hard experience, however — and will presently declare to his dinner guests, at the end of their monthlong fast — you don't reach Serendib by plotting a course for it.

We are not occupying Afghanistan , we are there as guests of a government, at their request.christopher hitchens
Whether (If) in a banquet somebody was to take it upon himself to snatch pieces from the mouth of the guests, we would be unanimous to find the method iniquitous and brutal (or violent), but if from another source ("par ailleurs", Fr.) the same is practised in a less apparent (or visible) way (or guise), we hardly show ourselves offended (or shocked) by it ("quand par ailleurs la chose se pratique sous une forme moins apparente, on ne s'en montre guère offusqué."

It is one of the peculiar curses of the social work profession that we often find ourselves guests in another's domain.
You have seen Sunshine and rain at once; her smile and tears Were like, a better way; those happy smilets, That play'd on her ripe lip, seem'd not to know What guests were in her eyes; which parted thence, As pearls from diamonds dropp'd.william shakespeare
To feel the supreme and moving beauty of the spectacle to which Nature invites her ephemeral guests! ... that is what I call prayer.
See, your guests approach: Address yourself to entertain them sprightly, And let's be red with mirth.william shakespeare
He knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
[Joker: Well, do guests get to keep these?] Heh. Sure, you do whatever you want with it. We got a closet full of them.
