Favorite Colin Quotes

1. "We welcome our beloved dead." Determined, I lifted my eyelids and searched the room. The feather in Mrs. Thompson's white curls bounced in a draft. Mr. Hunt's whiskers quivered. Lord Marshall sat entirely too near to Mother; his knee must surely be pressed against hers. The candle flickered. Someone cleared their throat. The poodle whined, bored.No spirits. They'd been hounding me all week; the least they could do was show themselves when they were needed. It was just rude otherwise. "Spirits," I snapped. "I said you are welcome here." Colin coughed once. "As long as you mean us no ill," I amended, remembering the surge of the angry spirit at the Whitestone Manor pond."

2. "I'm a friend of Colin Powell. We talk quite often."
Author: Ariel Sharon
3. "New Rule: Colin Firth has to admit that he's not a human being but a robot designed by women as the perfect man. He's handsome, charming, witty, he's got that accent and a gay best friend...the only way he could be any better is if he ejaculated Häagen-Dazs."
Author: Bill Maher
4. "- Is it their fault if they think that it's good to work?- No, said Colin, it's not their fault. It's because they've been told : work is sacred, it's good, it's nice, it's what counts before anything, and only those who work have the right to everything. The only thing is, it's been set up so that they work all the time so they can't take advantage of it.- But then they're stupid, said Chloe.- Yes, they're stupid, said Colin. That's why they agree with those that made them believe that work is the best thing there is. That saves them from thinking and finding a way to progress and to no longer work."
Author: Boris Vian
5. "Mais Colin ne savait pas, il courait, il avait peur, pourquoi ça ne suffit pas de toujours rester ensemble, il faut encore qu'on ait peur, peut-être est-ce un accident, une auto l'a écrasée, elle serait sur son lit, je ne pourrais la voir, ils m'empêcheraient d'entrer, mais vous croyez donc peut-être que j'ai peur de ma Chloé, je la verrai malgré vous, mais non, Colin, n'entre pas. Elle est peut-être blessée, seulement, alors, il n'y aura rien du tout, demain, nous irons ensemble au Bois, pour revoir le banc, j'avais sa main dans la mienne et ses cheveux près des miens, son parfum sur l'oreiller. Je prends toujours son oreiller, nous nous battrons encore le soir, le mien, elle le trouve trop bourré, il reste tout rond sous sa tête, et moi, je le reprends après, il sent l'odeur de ses cheveux."
Author: Boris Vian

Author: Boris Vian
7. "Die meisten Lügen sind wahr und spinnen sich von ganz allein, kaum jemand kannte diese Wahrheit besser als Colin Darcy. Wenn man erst einmal der Melodie der Worte zu lauschen beginnt, dann pfeift man sie bald selbst. Und wenn Lügen wie kunstvolle Lieder sind, dann gehörte Helen Darcy, Colins Mutter, zu jenem seltenen Menschenschlag, der allzeit eine beschwingte Melodie auf den Lippen trägt."
Author: Christoph Marzi

Author: Elle Casey

Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

Author: JoJo

"No offense torecent additions.""Oh, none taken."
Author: Julia Quinn

For a good ten seconds.Falling off a horse tended to do that to a man."
Author: Julia Quinn
24. "Felicity," Mrs. Featherington interurupted, "why don't you tell Mr. Brdgerton about your watercolors?"For the life of him, Colin couldn't imagine a less interesting topic (except maybe for Phillipa's watercolors), but he nonetheless turned to the youngest Featherington with a friendly smile and asked, "And how are your watercolors?"But Felicity, bless her heart, gave him a rather friendly smile herself and said nothing but, "I imagine they're fine, thank you."
Author: Julia Quinn

Colin had a way of looking at a person, his green eyes so focused and intent that you felt as if you must be the only two people in the universe. Unfortunately for Penelope, it also seemed to have a way of reducing her to a stammering imbecile. If they were in the midst of a conversation, she could generally hold her own, but when he surprised her like that, turning his attention onto her just when she'd convinced herself she blended in perfectly with the wallpaper, she was completely and utterly lost."
Author: Julia Quinn
27. "Not feeling very conversational this evening, are we?' Colin asked, breaking into his (admittedly tame) fantasies.'No,' Michael said, not appreciating the vague hint of condescension in the other man's voice, '/we/ are not.'Colin chuckled ... 'Just testing you,' he said, leaning back in his chair.'To see if I have spontaneously divided into two separate beings?' Michael bit off.'No, of course not,' Colin said with a suspiciously easy grin. 'I can see that quite clearly. I was merely testing your mood.'Michael arched a brow in a most forbidding manner. 'And you found it...?''Rather as usual,' Colin answered, undeterred ... 'To happiness,' Colin said, lifting his glass in the air."
Author: Julia Quinn

Author: Julia Quinn
29. "His mouth captured hers, trying to show her with his kiss what he was still learning to express in words. He loved her.He worshipped her. He'd walk across fire for her.

Anthony, Benedict, and Colin were still standing in the foyer.Anthony was studying the ceiling, Benedict was pretending to inspect his fingernails, and Colin was staring quite shamelessly."

Author: Neal Shusterman
35. "«Eso es la Tierra —pensó—. No un globo de miles de kilómetros, sino un bosque con un lago brillante, una casa escondida en la cresta de la colina, rodeada de árboles, una ladera cubierta de hierba que subía desde el agua, peces saltando y pájaros cayendo en picado para atrapar los insectos que vivían en la frontera entre el agua y el cielo. La Tierra era el ruido constante de grillos y vientos y pájaros. Y la voz de una chica, que le hablaba de su infancia lejana. La misma voz que una vez le protegió del terror. La misma voz por la que haría cualquier cosa para que siguiera viviendo, incluso regresar a la escuela, incluso dejar la Tierra de nuevo otros cuatro, o cuarenta o cuatro mil años. Aunque quisiera más a Peter."
Author: Orson Scott Card

40. "Much of my early career was spent working with two of the most toxic chemicals ever discovered, dioxin and aflatoxin. I initially worked at MIT, where I was assigned a chicken feed puzzle. Millions of chicks a year were dying from an unknown toxic chemical in their feed, and I had the responsibility of isolating and determining the structure of this chemical. After two and a half years, I helped discover dioxin, arguably the most toxic chemical ever found. This chemical has since received widespread attention, especially because it was part of the herbicide 2,4,5-T, or Agent Orange, then being used to defoliate forests in the Vietnam War."T.Colin Campbell"
Author: T. Colin Campbell
41. "Don't you do that." She turned away from the mirror, toward him. "Don't you dare make a joke. It took a great deal of courage to say what I did. And you don't have to speak a word in return, but I will insist you be man enough to take it. I won't have you making light of my feelings, or making light of yourself—as if you're not worthy of them. Because you are worthy, Colin. You're a generous, good-hearted person, and you deserve to be loved. Deeply, truly, well, and often"

42. "This is absurd," Colin grumbled. "At this rate, we'll arrive next Tuesday.""Stop talking. Start moving." Bram nudged a sheep with his boot, wincing as he did. With his leg already killing him, the last thing he needed was a pain in the arse, but that's exactly what he'd inherited, along with all his father's accounts and possessions: responsibility for his wastrel cousin, Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne.He swatted at another sheep's flank, earning himself an indignant bleat and a few inches more."I have an idea," Colin said.Bram grunted, unsurprised. As men, he and Colin were little more than strangers. But during the few years they'd overlapped at Eton, he recalled his younger cousin as being just full of ideas. Ideas that had landed him shin-deep in excrement. Literally, on at least one occasion.Colin looked from Bram to Thorne and back again, eyes keen. "I ask you, gentlemen. Are we, or are we not, in possession of a great quantity of black powder?"

43. "This Sir Alisdair fellow." Her cheeks blushed crimson. "I'm just saying, he's likely older than Francine. And less attractive." "I don't care! I don't care if he's ancient and warty and leprous and hunchbacked. He would still be learned, intelligent. Respected and respectful. He would still be a better man than you. You know it, and you're envious. You're being cruel to me to soothe your pride." She looked him up and down with a contemptuous glare. "And you're going to catch flies in your mouth, if you don't shut it." For once, Colin found himself without words. The best he could do was take her advice and hoist his dropped jaw."
Author: Tessa Dare
44. "When he [Colin] reached the center of the field, he paused to catch his breath and scan the area for telltale tufts of wool. When the lamb failed to appear, he cupped his hands around his mouth and tried again. "Dinner!"This time, his call earned an answer. Several answers. In fact, the ground shook with the collective bestial response. He spied several large, dark forms lumbering toward him through the twilight dusk. He blinked, trying to make them out. These weren't sheep. No, they were...Cows. Large cows. Remarkably fast and menacing cows. A small herd of them, all thundering straight for him where he stood in the center of the field.Colin took a few steps backward. "Wait," he said, holding up his hands. "I didn't mean you."
Author: Tessa Dare
45. "I will insist you be man enough to take it. I won't have you making light of my feelings, or making light of yourself—as if you're not worthy of them. Because you are worthy, Colin. You're a generous, good-hearted person, and you deserve to be loved. Deeply, truly, well, and often."He looked utterly bewildered. Well, what did he expect, after the power he'd given her? He couldn't compare a woman to a torrentially beautiful monsoon, and then look surprised that he'd gotten wet. "You reckless man." She laid a touch to his cheek. "You really should be more careful with those compliments."
Author: Tessa Dare
46. "A better man wouldn't play this ‘sweethearts' game with her when he knew very well it couldn't lead to more.But he wasn't a better man. He was Colin Sandhurst, reckless, incorrigible rogue—and damn it, he couldn't resist. He wanted to amuse her, spoil her, feed her sweets and delicacies. Steal a kiss or two, when she wasn't expecting it. He wanted to be a besotted young buck squiring his girl around the fair.In other words, he wanted to live honestly. Just for the day."
Author: Tessa Dare
47. "This explains so much," she said, clucking her tongue in mother-hen fashion. "You're compensating for this withered appendage."Withered appendage? What the devil was she talking about? He shook his head, trying to clear it. Colin's dire predictions of shriveled twigs and dried currants rattled in his skull. Wide awake now, he fought to sit up, wrestling the sheets."Listen, you. I don't know what sort of liberties you've taken while I was insensible, or just what your spinster imagination prepared you to see. But I'll have you know, that water was damned cold."She blinked at him. "I'm referring to your leg.""Oh." His leg. That withered appendage"

48. "The seat belt irked his father more than Uncle Colin's not eating meat, because, though his father never said it, Larry knew he considered seat belts cowardly."
Author: Tom Franklin
49. "Does doing something old with new technology mean that I'm teaching with technology and that I'm doing so in a way as to really improve the reading and writing skills of the students in my classroom?" (2007, 214). Her answer, as well as mine, would be no. When we simply bring a traditional mind-set to literacy practices, and not a mind-set that understands new literacies (an idea developed by Colin Lankshear and Michele Knobel, which I elaborate on later) into the process of digital writing, we cannot make the substantive changes to our teaching that need to happen in order to embrace the..."

50. "Sir Richard Glendale lifted the fatal paper, read it, and saying, 'Now all is indeed over,' handed it to Maxwell, who said aloud, 'Black Colin Campbell..."
