People just showed up and were always made welcome. To stay less than an hour was an insult, and there was always a meal.
The merciless Macdonwald (Worthy to be a rebel, for, to that, The multiplying villainies of nature Do swarm upon him) from the Western Isles Of kerns and gallowglasses is supplied; And Fortune, on his damned quarrel smiling, Showed like a rebel's whore: but all's too weak: For brave Macbeth (well he deserves that name) Disdaining Fortune, with his brandish'd steel, Which smoked with bloody execution, Like valour's minion, Carv'd out his passage.
When I passed the Chancellor he arose, waved his hand at me, and I waved back at him. I think the writers Showed bad taste in criticizing the man of the hour in Germany.jesse owens
Only the bad artists of the nineteenth century were frightened by the invention of photography; the good ones all welcomed it and used it. Degas liked it not only because it provided an accurate record, but because the snapshot Showed him a means of escape from the classical rules of design. Through it he learnt to make a composition without the use of formal symmetry.kenneth clark
If the resident zoologist of Galaxy X had visited the earth 5 million years ago while making his inventory of inhabited planets in the universe, he would surely have corrected his earlier report that apes Showed more promise than Old World monkeys and noted that monkeys had overcome an original disadvantage to gain domination among primates. (He will confirm this statement after his visit next year but also add a footnote that one species from the ape bush has enjoyed an unusual and unexpected flowering, thus demanding closer monitoring.)stephen jay gould
Sudden and magnificent, the sun's broad golden disc Showed itself over the horizon facing them; and the first rays, shooting across the level water-meadows, took the animals full in the eyes and dazzled them. When they were able to look once more, the Vision had vanished, and the air was full of the carol of birds that hailed the dawn.Kenneth Grahame
But the novels of women were not affected only by the necessarily narrow range of the writer's experience. They Showed, at least in the nineteenth century, another characteristic which may be traced to the writer's sex. In Middlemarch and in Jane Eyre we are conscious not merely of the writer's character, as we are conscious of the character of Charles Dickens, but we are conscious of a woman's presence of someone resenting the treatment of her sex and pleading for its rights.virginia woolf
Showed me pictures in the gallery Showed me novels on the shelf Put my hands across the table Gave me knowledge of myself. Showed me visions, Showed me nightmares Gave me dreams that never end Showed me light out of the tunnel When there was darkness all around instead.van morrison
The mouth, so far as I could see it under the heavy moustache, was fixed and rather cruel-looking, with peculiarly sharp white teeth; these protuded over the lips, whose remarkable ruddiness Showed astonishing vitality in a man of his years.Bram Stoker
On the day Kazan Showed me the completed picture I was so depressed by my performance that I got up and left the screening room.Marlon Brando
I had it for about fifteen years until I read Lenin and other writers, who Showed me what was wrong with our society and how to cure it... Since then I have needed no magnesia.j. b. s. haldane
The Web provided me with a much needed realization that information cannot be fully separated from its presentation, and Showed me something I knew without verbalizing explicitly, that the presentation form we choose communicates real information.erik naggum
She Showed the direction, and the party followed her. It was decisive that Merkel appeared human and credible, thereby winning over the trust of the party members.günter nooke
They loved him, I think, because, with all his merits, he Showed them to be rich: looking at his portraits, they understood at last how rich they really were.osbert sitwell
Ryukhin Showed himself no mercy-'I don't believe in anything I've ever written!'mikhail bulgakov
They condemn him [Hitler] for persecuting the Jews, but he has not shown half the ferocity which Cromwell Showed towards the Irish Catholics as for instance, in the siege of the fortress of Drogheda and the burning alive of its inmates.david lloyd george
The balance of our population, our human stock is threatened. A recent article in Poverty , published by the Child Poverty Action Group, Showed that a high and rising proportion of children are being born to mothers least fitted to bring children into the world and to bring them up. They are born to mothers who were first pregnant in adolescence in socio-economic classes IV and V.keith joseph
The Dodgson family worshipped the God of Love, who Showed his stern face only in the presence of evil.florence becker lennon
His sermon never said or Showed That Earth is foul, that Heaven is gracious, Without refreshment on the road From Jerome, or from Athanasius. And sure a righteous zeal inspired, The hand and head that penned and planned them, For all who understood, admired And some who did not understand them.winthrop mackworth praed
There bloomed the strawberry of the wilderness; The trembling eyebright Showed her sapphire blue, The thyme her purple, like the blush of Even; And if the breath of some to no caress Invited, forth they peeped so fair to view, All kinds alike seemed favourites of Heaven.william wordsworth
All of these credited for righteousness, going back from Abraham to the first man, could be described as Christians in fact if not in name, without exceeding the truth. For the name means that the Christian, through the knowledge and teaching of Christ, excels in self-control and righteousness, in disciplines and virtue, and in the confession of the one and only God over all, and in all this they Showed no less zeal than we.
