There is no more sombre enemy of good art than the pram in the hall.
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
Her cabined ample Spirit, It fluttered and failed for breath. Tonight it doth inherit The vasty hall of death.Matthew Arnold
Yet, when confinement's lingering hour was done, Our sport, our studies, and our souls were one: Together we impell'd the flying ball; Together waited in our tutor's hall; Together join'd in cricket's manly toil.lord byron
And dar'st thou then To beard the lion in his den, The Douglas in his hall?
And dar'st thou thenTo beard the lion in his den,The Douglas in his hall?walter scott
How some men creep in skittish Fortune's hall, While others play the idiots in her eyes!william shakespeare
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
And dar'st thou then To beard the lion in his den, The Douglas in his hall?walter scott
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.
Twenty-eight years ago, I created my first game on an Apple II in my bedroom closet at a time when the interactive entertainment industry was taking its first baby steps. Today the games business has grown to a multi-billion dollar industry and we are just at the tip of the iceberg. I'm thrilled to have been a part of this successful journey and I'm extremely honored by the Academy's hall of Fame induction.richard garriott
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
These ceremonies and the National Statuary hall will teach the youth of the land in succeeding generations as they come and go that the chief end of human effort in a sublunary view should be usefulness to mankind, and that all true fame which should be perpetuated by public pictures, statues, and monuments, is to be acquired only by noble deeds and high achievements and the establishment of a character founded upon the principles of truth, uprightness, and inflexible integrity.
All these relics gave... Thornfield hall the aspect of a home of the past: a shrine to memory. I liked the hush, the gloom, the quaintness of these retreats in the day; but I by no means coveted a night's repose on one of those wide and heavy beds: shut in, some of them, with doors of oak; shaded, others, with wrought old-English hangings crusted with thick work, portraying effigies of strange flowers, and stranger birds, and strangest human beings, all which would have looked strange, indeed, by the pallid gleam of moonlight.charlotte brontë
For the Judges of the Court I feel the most sincere respect, esteem and affection. Never have there presided in Westminster hall magistrates more devotedly anxious to perform in a satisfactory manner the duties of their high office.
If it were a doubtful point how the statute should be construed, I must consider myself as bound by the construction it has already received in two Courts in Westminster hall
An injured party may proceed in Westminster hall notwithstanding any order of the House.
