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.
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 our brave allies: you gallant Russian bear, you British everywhere.bob hope
(C.T.: Yes! Great shot Jones!) Thanks! But it's actually pronounced Jo-enn-ess, sir!
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
We didn't get where we are Thanks to the sissy notion of resilience.nassim nicholas taleb
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.
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.
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
Thanks to God that he gave me stubbornness when I know I am right.john adams
"Thanks for your questions, Elijah Burke, but I like to keep my reasons for joining The New Breed to myself."phil brooks
Of threads of palm was the carpet spun Whereon he kneels when the day is done, And the foreheads of Islam are bowed as one! To him the palm is a gift divine, Wherein all uses of man combine, House and raiment and food and wine! And, in the hour of his great release, His need of the palms shall only cease With the shroud wherein he lieth in peace. "Allah il Allah!" he sings his psalm, On the Indian Sea, by the isles of balm; "Thanks to Allah, who gives the palm!"john greenleaf whittier
If I had my way, I would build a lethal chamber as big as the Crystal Palace, with a military band playing softly, and a Cinematograph working brightly; then I’d go out in the back streets and main streets and bring them in, all the sick, the halt, and the maimed; I would lead them gently, and they would smile me a weary Thanks; and the band would softly bubble out the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’.d. h. lawrence
The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's for which the sheep Thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act as the destroyer of liberty . Plainly, the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of liberty.
A person is not a democrat Thanks to his ignorance of literature and the arts, nor an elitist because he or she has cultivated them. The possession of knowledge makes for unjust power over others only if used for that very purpose: a physician or lawyer or clergyman can exploit or humiliate others, or he can be a humanitarian and a benefactor. In any case, it is absurd to conjure up behind anybody who exploits his educated status the existence of an "elite" scheming to oppress the rest of us.jacques barzun
