But as the priceless treasure too frequently hides at the bottom of well, it needs some courage to dive for it, especially as he that does so will be likely to incur more scorn and obloquy for the mud and water into which he has ventured to plunge, than thanks for the jewel he procures; as like in manner, she who undertakes the cleansing of a careless bachelor's apartment will be liable to more abuse for the dust she raises than commendation for the clearance she effects.
Gra" ce a' Dieu, je suis toujours athe e. Thanks be to God, I am still an atheist.Luis Bun‹ u el
My final word, before I'm done,
Is 'Cancer can be rather fun'.
Thanks to the nurses and Nye Bevan
The NHS is quite like heaven
Provided one confronts the tumour
With a sufficient sense of humour.
I know that cancer often kills,
But so do cars and sleeping pills;
And it can hurt one till one sweats,
So can bad teeth and unpaid debts.
Thanks to the directors for addressing this message to my home. Written several minutes before my death.rudolf hess
Thanks to our brave allies: you gallant Russian bear, you British everywhere.bob hope
Thanks to guys like Boss Tweed, famous for saying, 'I don't give a damn who does the voting, as long as I do the nominating,' there hasn't been an honest election in the USA since sometime around the War Between the States.l. neil smith
(C.T.: Yes! Great shot Jones!) Thanks! But it's actually pronounced Jo-enn-ess, sir!
Next time you have a chance to kill someone, don't hesitate. [John McClane: Thanks for the advice!]
The life that I have chosen gives me my full hours of enjoyment for the balance of my life. The sun will not rise, or set, without my notice, and Thanks.Winslow Homer
This pretty ring? I will give it to the first man who tells me he would like to be a woman. It is delightful to be a woman; but every man Thanks the Lord devoutly that he isn't one.Iron

To receive honestly is the best Thanks for a good thing.George MacDonald
How little inventiveness there is in man, Grave copier of copies, I give Thanks For a new relish, careless to inquire My pleasure's pedigree, if so it please, Nobly, I mean, nor renegade to art. The Grecian gluts me with its perfectness, Unanswerable as Euclid , self-contained, The one thing finished in this hasty world, Forever finished, though the barbarous pit, Fanatical on hearsay, stamp and shout As if a miracle could be encored.james russell lowell
The only kind of marriage liberals had ever glorified is the gay kind. But Thanks to Michael Schiavo, the sanctity of marriage is fast becoming a liberal sacrament, with the proviso it has to involve 'mercy killing.' It took Michael Schiavo's devoted efforts to starve and dehydrate his wife to restore liberal faith in the institution.ilana mercer
I disagree with the followers of Marx and those of Adam Smith: the reason free markets work is because they allow people to be lucky, Thanks to aggressive trial and error, not by giving rewards or "incentives" for skill.nassim nicholas taleb
We didn't get where we are Thanks to the sissy notion of resilience.nassim nicholas taleb
Everything here is alive Thanks to the living of everything else.lewis thomas
It's a very old word, but over the course of just a few months it took on another life and moved in new and unexpected directions, Thanks to a national and global movement. The movement itself was powered by the word.
Thy voice sounds like a prophet's word; And in its hollow tones are heard The Thanks of millions yet to be.
These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now deserves the love and Thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.
THESE are the times that try men's souls . The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country ; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and Thanks of man and woman.
PERSONALITY TITHE: A price paid for becoming a couple; previously amusing human beings become boring: 'Thanks for inviting us, but Noreen and I are going to look at flatware catalogs tonight. Afterward we're going to watch the shopping channel.'Douglas Coupland
