I need not ask thee if that hand, now calmed, Has any Roman soldier mauled and knuckled, For thou wert dead, and buried and embalmed, Ere Romulus and Remus had been suckled: Antiquity appears to have begun Long after that primeval race was run.horace smith
It is never too late to reform, as Long as you have the sense to desire it, and the strength to execute your purpose.anne brontë
A Long time ago I learned not to put the blame for backwardness in Brazil on the US. We have to blame ourselves. Our backwardness is caused by an elite which for a century didn't think about the majority and subordinated itself to foreign interests.luiz inácio lula da silva
It is like a wide embrace gathering all those who have Long searched for words of hope… Saddened by the continual strife amongst believers of many confessions and wearied of their intolerance towards each other, I discovered in the Bahá'í teaching the real spirit of Christ so often denied and misunderstood.queen of romania marie of edinburgh
We have Long passed the Victorian Era when asterisks were followed after a certain interval by a baby.
Brother, you can believe in stones, as Long as you don’t throw them at me. You are free to worship whoever you want, but other people’s beliefs are not your concern, whether they believe that the Messiah is God, son of Mary, or that Satan is God, son of Mary. Let people have their beliefs.wafa sultan
Naked girls with the heads of Marx and Malraux prone and helpless in the glare of the headlights, tried to give them a little joie de vivre but maybe it didn’t take, their constant bickering and smallness, it’s like a stroke of lightning, the world reminds you of its power, tracheotomies right and left, I am spinning, my pretty child, don’t scratch, pick up your feet, the Long nights, spent most of my time listening, this is a test of the system, this is only a test.Donald Barthelme
Wilde was not a great poet nor a consummate prose writer. He was a very astute Irishman who encompassed in epigrams an esthetic credo which others before him scattered in the space of Long pages. He was an enfant terrible .jorge luis borges
I was in the death struggle with self: God and Satan fought for my soul those three Long hours. God conquered now I have only one doubt left which of the twain was God?aleister crowley
By nature of me being the one singing it and writing it there is always an innate bit of autobiography there ... but I think I learned years ago that you don't get songs that have that Long stride and that pivot-hinge ability if it's too much diary entry.leslie feist
At night I sit in my chamber and read the bible . Far in the distance roars the sea. Then I lie down and think for a Long time about the calm and pale man from Nazareth.joseph goebbels
Each of the major sciences has contributed an essential ingredient in our Long retreat from an initial belief in our own cosmic importance. Astronomy defined our home as a small planet tucked away in one corner of an average galaxy among millions; biology took away our status as paragons created in the image of God; geology gave us the immensity of time and taught us how little of it our own species has occupied.stephen jay gould
There can be no complete and permanent reform of the civil service until public opinion emancipates congressmen from all control and influence over government patronage. Legislation is required to establish the reform. No proper legislation is to be expected as Long as members of Congress are engaged in procuring offices for their constituents.rutherford b. hayes
We Long for unity, but are unwilling to pay the price. But of course, true unity cannot be so easily won. It starts with a change in attitudes - a broadening of our minds, and a broadening of our hearts.Barack Obama
It is pretty clear that the coalition can win in Afghanistan and Iraq in one way or another, but it will be a Long, hard slog. Donald Rumsfeld
I always said that in a country where a legislature, its sessions limited by statute, could alter reality by turning back the clock (I actually saw this done, once, with a Long pole pushing on the hour hand), any travesty was possible. I see nothing lately to prove me wrong.l. neil smith
We hanker to go on, even in the face of plain evidence that Long, Long lives are not necessarily pleasurable in the kind of society we have arranged thus far. We will be lucky if we can postpone the search for new technologies for a while, until we have discovered some satisfactory things to do with the extra time.lewis thomas
I settled at Cold Mountain Long ago Already it seems like ages Wandering free I roam the woods and streams Lingering to watch things be themselves Men don’t come this far into the mountains Where white clouds gather and billow Dry grass makes a comfortable mattress The blue sky is a fine quilt Happy to pillow my head on the rock I leave heaven and earth to endless change
Environmentalists have Long been fond of saying that the sun is the only safe nuclear reactor, situated as it is some ninety-three million miles away.stephanie mills
The slender acacia would not shake One Long milk-bloom on the tree; The white lake-blossom fell into the lake As the pimpernel dozed on the lea; But the rose was awake all night for your sake, Knowing your promise to me; The lilies and roses were all awake, They sighed for the dawn and thee.
No loss there of life human, but benches and chairs Had legs broken; such wounds, too, the Long table bears, Stripped of cloths and of covers, fell on the plates dying, Wet with wine, as a knight on bloody bucklers lying, Among numerous chickens and turkeys stripped nude, From whose breasts, transfixed lately, forks stiffly protrude.
