Charles Dickens, The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby(1838–1839), Chapter 3.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend , even a stranger, when in a lonely place.tecumseh
Rebellion in this land shall lose his sway, meeting the check of such another day.william shakespeare
As drifting logs of wood may haply meet On ocean's waters surging to and fro, And having met, drift once again apart, So, fleeting is the intercourse of men. E'en as a traveler meeting with the shade Of some o'erhung tree, awhile reposes, Then leaves its shelter to pursue his ways, So men meet friends, then part with them for ever.
The recruit must be carefully and sedulously taught when meeting the enemy, even at a trot or canter, to use no force whatever, otherwise his sword will bury itself to the hilt, and the swordsman will either be dragged from his horse, or will be compelled to drop his weapon if he can.
We were so clos'd within each other's breasts The rivets were not found that join'd us first. That does not reach us yet: we were so mix'd, As meeting streams, both to ourselves were lost; We were one mass; we could not give or take, But from the same; for he was I, I he!john dryden
No human eye can isolate the unhappy coincidence of line and place which suggests evil in the face of a house, and yet somehow a maniac juxtaposition, a badly turned angle, some chance meeting of roof and sky, turned Hill House into a place of despair, more frightening because the face of Hill House seemed awake, with a watchfulness from the blank windows and a touch of glee in the eyebrow of a cornice.shirley jackson
Since 1990, the American Dialect Society has included in its annual meeting a vote on Words of the Year, the words that were most notable, prominent, and characteristic of the discourse of the year just past.
Bishops are not intercontinental ballistic missiles, manufactured on one continent and fired into another as an act of aggression. The recent irregular ordination in Singapore is, in my opinion, an open and premeditated assault on Anglican tradition, catholic order and Christian charity. I ask for the prayers of the whole church for the Primates' meeting that it may contribute to deeper comprehension, mutual trust, and godly quietness among its members and throughout the Communion.
I cannot tell where you should look for me, if you send out any pinnace to seek me; because I live at the devotion of the wind and seas. And thus fare you well; desiring God to send us a merry meeting in this world, if it be his good will and pleasure.
'The Art of Being Ruled'might be described from some points of view as an infernal Utopia. Rather than custom, it feels more like an invocation to an unknown deity when Cubans get together?they hold a suspenseful silence until any voice is heard saying or singing something that has nothing to do with the purpose of the meeting.Jose Lezama Lima
If we had never met Picasso, would Cubism have been what it is? I think not. The meeting with Picasso was a circumstance in our lives.Georges Braque
The caucus is a sort of representative meeting which sits voting and voting till they have cut out all the known men against whom much is to be said, and agreed on some unknown man against whom there is nothing known, and therefore nothing to be alleged.walter bagehot
'I had the pleasure of meeting that young man at the Patriarch's Ponds. He almost drove me mad myself, proving to me that I don't exist. But you do believe that it is really I?'mikhail bulgakov
I am surprised you should say fancy and aesthetic tastes have led me to my present state of mind: these would be better satisfied in the Church of England, for bad taste is always meeting one in the accessories of Catholicism.gerard manley hopkins
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.carl jung
I have left orders to be awakened at any time in case of national emergency, even if I'm in a cabinet meeting.ronald reagan
For the record: Though our professional circles did cross-over slightly... I never had the honour or pleasure of meeting Michael Jackson personally, nor did we ever correspond on matters of our professions, personal lives or faiths . … My approach to faith does not include concepts of "conversion/reversion" or "propagation", so the very idea that I would have even tried to "convert" Mr. Jackson (or anyone else for that matter) to my spiritual perspective, is silly.dawud wharnsby
One could see that what you are writing was that today's meeting with President Bill Clinton was going to be a disaster. Now, for the first time, I can tell you that you are a disaster.Boris Yeltsin
It is sweet to hold converse with the pious dead. A holy influence emanates from their blissful home, and fills the soul with a feeling of sacred and solemn awe. The spirit whispers peace, and fills the waiting caverns of the soul with the bright hope of again meeting those whom we believe to be in the abode of redeemed and happy spirits.
Wit is the clash and reconcilement of incongruities; the meeting of extremes round a corner.leigh hunt
The Crown used to call a Parliament annually, but there was not an annual election. These words, annuo parliamento , relate to the time of their meeting, and not their election.
To feed were best at home; From thence the sauce to meat is ceremony; meeting were bare without it.william shakespeare
