The time is right to mix sentences with dirt and the sun with punctuation and rain with verbs.
Your mania for Sentences has dried up your heart.
I have horrible nightmares of Sir Almwroth Wright's limp Sentences wandering through the arid desert of his mind looking for dropped punctuation marks.Dame Rebecca formerly Cecily Isabel Fairfield West
Know what makes a sentence more than a random list, practice constructing Sentences and explaining what you have done, and you will know how to make Sentences forever and you will know too when what you are writing doesn't make the grade because it has degenerated into a mere pile of discrete items.stanley fish
People write or speak Sentences in order to produce an effect, and the success of a sentence is measured by the degree to which the desired effect has been achieved.stanley fish
The word "essay" means to try out, test, probe. In the essay style, successive clauses and Sentences are not produced by an overarching logic, but by association; the impression that prose gives is that it can go anywhere in a manner wholly unpredictable.stanley fish
"Som-Som would later learn that the girl's name was Book. Ambiguous and suggestive Sentences swirled out from the maroon bud of her nipple. Verses of elegant and cryptic passion followed the orbit of her left eye. Her fingers dripped with poetry."alan moore
I sometimes think, with a sad delight, that if one day, in a future I no longer belong to, these Sentences, that I write, last with praise, I will at last have the people who understand me, those mine, the true family to be born in and be loved. [...] I will only be understood in effigy, when affection no longer repays the dead the unaffection that was, when living.fernando pessoa
I believe more and more that this business is about people. People, people. The idea is to make friends at the retail level, the warehouse level, let people see you exist, can form Sentences and have an interest in something other than yourself.david lee roth
... no diplomatic intervention will ever be made by any government that I lead in support of any individual terrorist's life. We have only indicated in the past, and will maintain a policy in the future, of intervening diplomatically in support of Australian nationals who face capital Sentences abroad.kevin rudd
20 years. Well ... that's fair enough. They couldn't have given me a lighter sentence, considering the facts, and I can't complain. I said the Sentences must be severe, and I admitted my share of the guilt, so it would be ridiculous if I complained about the punishment.albert speer
Pithy Sentences are like sharp nails which force truth upon our memory.Denis Diderot
We cannot judge either of the feelings or of the characters of men with perfect accuracy from their actions or their appearance in public; it is from their careless conversations, their half-finished Sentences, that we may hope with the greatest probability of success to discover their real characters.Maria Edgeworth
As to War I can only say that my opinion is clearly that it will not be. I can tell you my reasons for this opinion in two Sentences. 1st. I am sure that Bonaparte will do everything that he can to avoid it. 2nd. that, low as my opinion is of our Ministry, I cannot believe them quite so foolish as to force him to it, without one motive either of ambition or interest to incite them.charles james fox
Leibniz’s theory on the subject as substantia ideans in the sense of a causative agent of decision and acts stands much closer to a materialist interpretation of history than does a philosophy which reduces the thinking subject to the role of subsuming protocol Sentences under general propositions and deducing other Sentences from them.max horkheimer
I have a lot of interest in interior rhyming; not just rhyming at the end of the lines, but playing around with rhymes within the lines, playing with where the syllabic emphases in the Sentences are, lining those up at strange moments in the line of the song. I’m not sure if that comes across or not.joanna newsom
Such dialectical relation of opposites in and by the proposition is rendered possible by the recognition of the subject as an historical agent whose identity constitutes itself in and against its historical practice, in and against its social reality. The discourse develops and states the conflict between the thing and its function, and this conflict finds linguistic expression in Sentences which join contradictory predicates in a logical unit conceptual counterpart of the objective reality. In contrast to all Orwellian language, the contradiction is demonstrated, made explicit, explained, and denounced.herbert marcuse
Proverbs are short Sentences drawn from long and wise experience.Miguel de Cervantes
Note: Ratigan's henchman Bartholomew falls into some alcohol and emerges very drunk and calls his boss "the world's greatest rat". Since Ratigan hates being called a rat and prefers the term of "a big mouse", he Sentences him to death at the hands of his pet cat, who eats him up while he's still drunkenly singing of Ratigan's glory, unaware of what is about to happen despite Ratigan telling him.
I sometimes think, with a sad delight, that if one day, in a future I no longer belong to, these Sentences, that I write, last with praise, I will at last have the people who understand me, those mine, the true family to be born in and be loved.

If we wish to express our ideas in terms of the concepts synthetic and analytic, we would have to point out that these concepts are applicable only to Sentences that can be either true of false, and not to definitions. The mathematical axioms are therefore neither synthetic nor analytic, but definitions. ...Hence the question of whether axioms are a priori becomes pointless since they are arbitrary.
Most books belong to the house and streets only, . . . .But this(Bhagavad Gita) . . . . addresses what is deepest and most abiding in man. . . . Its truth speaks freshly to our experience. [the Sentences of Manu] are a piece with depth and serenity and I am sure they will have a place and significance as long as there is a sky to test them by.
