There is no more sombre enemy of good art than the pram in the hall.
I feel like one who treads alone Some banquet hall deserted, Whose lights are fled, whose garlands dead, And all but he departed.thomas moore
Where in venerable rows Widely waving oaks enclose The moat of yonder antique hall, Swarm the rooks with clamorous call; And, to the toils of nature true, Wreath their capacious nests anew.thomas warton
As always, Canada will now bury its war dead, just as the rest of the world, as always, will forget its sacrifice, just as it always forgets nearly everything Canada ever does. It seems that Canada's historic mission is to come to the selfless aid both of its friends and of complete strangers, and then, once the crisis is over, to be well and truly ignored. Canada is the perpetual wallflower that stands on the edge of the hall, waiting for someone to come and ask her for a dance.
My philosophy of life is that the meek shall inherit nothing but debasement, frustration and ignoble deaths; that there is security in personal strength; that you can fight City hall and win; that any action is better than no action, even if it's the wrong action; that you never reach glory or self-fulfillment unless you're willing to risk everything, dare anything, put yourself dead on the line every time; and that once one becomes strong or rich or potent or powerful it is the responsibility of the strong to help the weak become strong.harlan ellison
You are invited to come to see the Earth turn, tomorrow, from three to five, at Meridian hall of the Paris Observatory.léon foucault
Death is not soft-mouthed, vague-footed, nearby. It is in the hall.Harold Brodkey
The way to go to the circus, however, is with someone who has seen perhaps one theatrical performance before in his life and that in the High School hall. ... The scales of sophistication are struck from your eyes and you see in the circus a gathering of men and women who are able to do things as a matter of course which you couldn’t do if your life depended on it.robert benchley
How some men creep in skittish Fortune's hall, While others play the idiots in her eyes!william shakespeare
His lordship may compel us to be equal upstairs, but there will never be equality in the servants' hall.j. m. barrie
The mistletoe hung in the castle hall, The holly-branch shone on the old oak wall.thomas haynes bayly
And dar'st thou then To beard the lion in his den, The Douglas in his hall?walter scott
Statesmen of dedication and sincerity, many of them in this hall, have done their utmost to arrest this development. Yet the arms race goes on. It is as if the arms race had escaped rational human control.
I'm king of the dead and I make my throne On a monument slab of marble cold; And my scepter of rule is the spade I hold: Come they from cottage or come they from hall, Mankind are my subjects, all, all, all! Let them loiter in pleasure or toilfully spin I gather them in, I gather them in!
I hope the Chancery will not repeal an Act of Parliament. Waste in the house is waste in the curtilage; and waste in the hall is waste in the whole house.
The best way in which to silence any friend of yours whom you know to be a fool is to induce him to hire a hall. Nothing chills pretense like exposure.
I took the wren's nest; Heaven forgive me! Its merry architects so small Had scarcely finished their wee hall, That, empty still, and neat and fair, Hung idly in the summer air.
In the world's audience hall, the simple blade of grass sits on the same carpet with the sunbeams, and the stars of midnight.rabindranath tagore
There was Riley pushing it, shoving it, shushing itHogan, Logan and ev'ryone in town lined upAttacking it and shoving it and smacking itThey might as well have tried to push the Town hall down.The donkey was eyeing them,Openly defying themWinking, blinking and twisting out of place,Riley reversing it,Ev'rybody cursing itThe day Delaney's donkey ran the half mile race.william hargreaves
You can't fight City hall. It keeps changing its name.jack kerouac
Woody Allen says at the end of Annie hall that we’re always trying to get things to come out perfect in art because it’s so difficult in real life [...] if we can accept Allen’s as a definition of art, then sabermetrics is absolutely an art. And, just as Kalkman notes, it’s an art whose practitioners are bent on seeing justice done in baseball, if nowhere else.carson cistulli
The dews of summer night did fall, The moon, sweet regent of the sky, Silvered the walls of Cumnor hall And many an oak that grew thereby.william julius mickle
An injured party may proceed in Westminster hall notwithstanding any order of the House.
Out of the hills of Habersham, Down the valleys of hall, I hurry amain to reach the plain: Run the rapid and leap the fall, Split at the rock, and together again Accept my bed, or narrow or wide, And flee from folly on every side With a lover's pain to attain the plain, Far from the hills of Habersham, Far from the valleys of hall.Sidney Lanier
You lie, in faith; for you are call'd plain Kate, And bonny Kate, and sometimes Kate the curst; But Kate, the prettiest Kate in Christendom, Kate of Kate hall, my super-dainty Kate, For dainties are all cates: and therefore, Kate, Take this of me, Kate of my consolation; Hearing thy mildness prais'd in every town, Thy virtues spoke of, and thy beauty sounded, (Yet not so deeply as to thee belongs,) Myself am mov'd to woo thee for my wife.
