Author: Abraham Joshua Heschel
252. "Then came upon a world in ruins an anxious youth. The children were drops of burning blood which had inundated the earth; they were born in the bosom of war, for war. For fifteen years they had dreamed of the snows of Moscow and of the sun of the Pyramids."
Author: Alfred De Musset
253. "If I talk, everyone thinks I'm showing off; when I'm silent they think I'm ridiculous, rude if I answer, sly if I get a good idea, lazy if I'm tired, selfish if I eat a mouthful more than I should, stupid, cowardly, crafty, etc., etc."
Author: Anne Frank
254. "I always disliked dogs, those protectors of cowards who lack the courage to fight an assailant themselves."
Author: August Strindberg
255. "In America, alas, beauty has become something you drive to, and nature an either/or proposition--either you ruthlessly subjugate it, as at Tocks Dam and a million other places, or you deify it, treat it as something holy and remote, a thing apart, as along the Appalachian Trail. Seldom would it occur to anyone on either side that people and nature could coexist to their mutual benefit--that, say, a more graceful bridge across the Delaware River might actually set off the grandeur around it, or that the AT might be more interesting and rewarding if it wasn't all wilderness, if from time to time it purposely took you past grazing cows and till fields."
Author: Bill Bryson
256. "He who fights with guns and knives is a coward! For how easy is it to kill with the single pull of a trigger? And how does human flesh stand to a sharpened metal? Even an idiot can kill with a gun and a knife! A man needs no courage at all to stand behind these things that make him feel invincible and bigger than he ever will be! I don't say that no one should fight! Because battles must be fought, and wars will always be won! But let those who fight, fight with bare hands! The measure of true strength! With his hands and feet and nothing but! The country with truly strong men is able to have soldiers that need not a knife, that need no guns! And if you can soar even higher than that; fight with your pens! Let us all write! And see the substance of the man through his philosophies and through his beliefs! And let one philosophy outdo another! Let one belief outlast another! And let this be how we determine the outcome of a war!"
Author: C. JoyBell C.
257. "Isabelle looked at him thoughtfully. "Did you seriously jump thirty feet out of a Malachi Configuration? Did he, Alec?""He did," Alec confirmed. "I've never seen anything like it.""I've never seen anything like this." Jace lifted a ten-inch dagger from the floor. One of Isabelle's pink brassiers was spread on the wickedly sharp tip. Isabelle snached it off, scowling."
Author: Cassandra Clare
258. "You know," Cecily said, "you really didn't have to throw that man through the window.""He wasn't a man," Gabriel said, scowling. "He was an Unseelie Court faerie. One of the nasty ones.""Is that why you chased him down the street?""He had no business showing images like that to a lady," Gabriel muttered, though it had to be admitted that the lady in question had hardly turned a hair, and seemed more annoyed with Gabriel for his reaction than impressed by his chivalry."And I do think it was excessive to hurl him into the canal.""He'll float."The corners of Cecily's mouth twitched. "It was very wrong."
Author: Cassandra Clare
259. "But you know, even worrying about haircuts couldn't depress me. Because every time I started sinking low, I'd just remember about football. All this time I'd thought I wanted to be a trainer, when it turned out I wanted to be a player instead. I saw something I wanted to do and I decided to do it. The feeling of freedom this gave me—I can't even describe it. It was my decision. I chose it. I am not a cow."
Author: Catherine Gilbert Murdock
260. "Suicide sometimes proceeds from cowardice, but not always; for cowardice sometimes prevents it; since as many live because they are afraid to die, as die because they are afraid to live"
Author: Charles Caleb Colton
261. "Toby Keith writes songs like 1993's "Should've Been a Cowboy," and what's compelling is that you can't deconstruct its message. "Should've Been a Cowboy" is not like Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive," where Jon Bon Jovi claimed to live like a cowboy; Toby Keith wants to be a cowboy for real."
Author: Chuck Klosterman
262. "Green tea?""You can't be serious."The old woman nodded her approval. "I wasn't.""Because you know when a cow chews grass? And he or she chews and chews and chews? Well, green tea tastes like French-kissing that cow after it's done chewing all that grass."
Author: David Levithan
263. "The working of miracles is old and out-dated; to teach the people is too laborious; to interpret scripture is to invade the prerogative of the schoolmen; to pray is too idle; to shed tears is cowardly and unmanly; to fast is too mean and sordid; to be easy and familiar is beneath the grandeur of him, who, without being sued to and intreated, will scarce give princes the honour of kissing his toe; finally, to die for religion is too self-denying; and to be crucified as their Lord of Life, is base and ignominious."
Author: Desiderius Erasmus
264. "Co do szczególów, to podobal mi sie fragment na temat alkoholu. Z dluzszych cytatów, przytaczanych niestety bez podawania zródel, wynika tutaj, ze czesto nieodparta atrakcyjnosc alkoholu polega nie na fizycznej przyjemnosci, lecz na jego mistycznej sile. Nieszczesnik zatem ucieka sie do niego nie z zepsucia, ale z glodu duchowej mocy. Trunek daje biedakowi, prostakowi to, co innym przynosi muzyka, biblioteka: ofiarowuje mu wyzsza rzeczywistosc. Z obrzezy realnosci wprowadza go do tej wewnetrznej pracowni. Dla wielu waska strefa, w której przez moment korzystaja z nieograniczonosci, znajduje sie na granicy opilstwa. Totez w wielkim bledzie sa ci, co chca zwalczac pijanstwo jako cos w rodzaju zarlocznosci nastawionej na plyny."
Author: Ernst Jünger
265. "This was more than just a cow - this was an entire career I was looking at."
Author: Gary Larson
266. "You, why are you so afraid of war and slaughter? Even if all the rest of us drop and die around you, grappling for the ships, you'd run no risk of death: you lack the heart to last it out in combat—coward!"
Author: Homer
267. "There were several packages waiting for me at the post officeand I only barely squealed. They were advanced reader copiesfrom other bloggers passing them along for review. And I was,like, whatever. Sure evidence I was coming down with mad cowdisease."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
268. "Frost interviewing Noel Coward and Margaret Mead. Sir Noel's view of life is Sir Noel. Mead's mind is large and open, like Buckminster Fuller's. She found thoughts dull that suggest that men are superior to animals or plants."
Author: John Cage
269. "The coward's weapon, poison."
Author: John Fletcher
270. "He could never forgive her for "cheating" on his father. His words, not hers. A child's word. "Selfish bitch," he'd called her once, he who knew nothing of selfishness or bitchery, no more than he knew of selflessness or whatever the opposite of bitchery was (sophrosyne?), knew only his own colossal ego, too self-centered even to understand why he couldn't simply dismiss her as evil and forget it. Sweet Christ how she hated him! But no. No more than she hated his father. It was past that. Caught in impossibilities, but knowing, at least, why she hated the part of herself she hated and why she could not escape, ever, for all the grinning cow-catchers and whistling boats and twinkling propellers in Christendom. Ah, Christendom! she thought."
Author: John Gardner
271. "Grace-" He scowled, then laughed. "What the devil is your middle name?""Catriona." she whispered."Grace Catriona Eversleigh," he said, loud and sure, "I love you."
Author: Julia Quinn
272. "When I reach the end of one row, I continue straight on away from the barn and the farm and the road. I walk until I come to a pile of hay bales and plop myself down. The sun is bright and the air is sharp. In the distance I hear the lowing of cows. It's so peaceful here."Merry Christmas, " I whisper to myself. "Merry Christmas, Nate."
Author: Lisa Ann Sandell
273. "Yes, Keith shut up." Roberta's sly grin turned her face into a mask of pure evil. "So, let me get this straight. Miss Bitchy-Witch wants to go, no, is demanding to go to Hell and make a deal with the Devil, huh? Offering yourself in trade for a mutt and some ancient pussy? Very noble and honorable, Selena. Stupid, but just what I'd expect from a coward like you. Why fight, when you can surrender, right? Myself, I find your willingness to sacrifice your own life for those creatures rather disgusting and I don't know what Father sees in you."
Author: Madison Sevier
274. "In my cowardice I became at once a man, and did what all we grown men do when face to face with suffering and injustice; I preferred not to see them"
Author: Marcel Proust
275. "I was feeling real good and real manly. Until a real cowboy walked by and told me I had my hat on backwards. So much for my career as a cowboy."
Author: Michael Biehn
276. "One of the accusations made against the Pope is that he did not give a public and obvious denunciation of anti-Semitism during the Holocaust. It's a valid issue but one that is often discussed with too little understanding of the reality of 1940s Europe. Such explicit condemnations of Nazi anti-Semitism were not really made in London, Washington, or Moscow, but it's always assumed that Rome should somehow have been different, in spite of the fact that the Vatican was surrounded by Nazi or pro-Nazi troops and that millions of Roman Catholics lived under Nazi occupation whereas London, Washington, and even Moscow were relatively cocooned and the latter even comparatively safe."
Author: Michael Coren
277. "Sawród nich tacy, którzy w liscie wyrazaja sie jezykiem jakze doskonale nowoczesnym, zewszystkimi jego frazesami, z jego zargonem, jego obowiazkowym optymizmem... wiem, ze to oni bedapracowali dobrze i gorliwie. I sa tez tacy, którzy w innych czasach poswieciliby sie zpewnoscia filozofii, historii sztuki, nauczaniu francuskiego, lecz dzisiaj poszukuja pracy unas, nie majac innego wyjscia, niemal z rozpaczy. Wiem, ze gardza w duchu stanowiskiem, októre sie ubiegaja (...)"
Author: Milan Kundera
278. "Eric the Evil scowled. Well, hell. He was jealous of himself."
Author: Nina Bangs
279. "Don't you want me to kiss you goodbye, sweetie?""Kiss a cow farm boy"
Author: Nora Roberts
280. "The land is not in the least bit fertile and yet the cattle herds grow larger and larger. A cow represents capital investment here."
Author: Richard Leakey
281. "Hey, Sydney. I thought I saw your car out there." He glanced around. "Is, uh, Jill with you?""Not today." I said. New insight struck me as I recalled that Lee attended school in Los Angeles. "Lee, have you ever dated a human girl at your school?"Adrian arched an eyebrow. "Are you asking him out, Sage?"I scowled. "No!"
Author: Richelle Mead
282. "His left eyebrow crept higher and higher as I told him the strange bits like the glowing letters and serpent staff. "Well, Sadie," Inspector Williams said. "You've got quite an imagination." "I'm not lying, Inspector. And I think your eyebrow is trying to escape." He tried to look at his own eyebrows, then scowled."
Author: Rick Riordan
283. "Michael had taken over the Apollo cabin after Lee Fletcher died in battle last summer. Michael stood four-foot-six with another two feet of attitude. He reminded me of a ferret, with a pointy nose and scrunched-up features—either because he scowled so much or because he spent too much time looking down the shaft of an arrow. "It's our loot!" he yelled, standing on his tiptoes so he could get in Clarisse's face. "If you don't like it, you can kiss my quiver!" Around the table, people were trying not to laugh—the Stoll brothers, Pollux from the Dionysus cabin, Katie Gardner from Demeter. Even Jake Mason, the hastily appointed new counselor from Hephaestus, managed a faint smile. Only Silena Beauregard didn't pay any attention."
Author: Rick Riordan
284. "It is contended by many that ours is a Christian government, founded upon the Bible, and that all who look upon the book as false or foolish are destroying the foundation of our country. The truth is, our government is not founded upon the rights of gods, but upon the rights of men. Our Constitution was framed, not to declare and uphold the deity of Christ, but the sacredness of humanity. Ours is the first government made by the people and for the people. It is the only nation with which the gods have had nothing to do. And yet there are some judges dishonest and cowardly enough to solemnly decide that this is a Christian country, and that our free institutions are based upon the infamous laws of Jehovah."
Author: Robert G. Ingersoll
285. "As Schulz himself has pointed out, Snoopy is capable of being 'one of the meanest' members of the entire Peanuts cast ... he is lazy, he is a 'chow-hound' without parallel, he is bitingly sarcastic, he is frequently a coward, and he often becomes quite weary of being what he is basically -- a dog. He is, in other words, a fairly drawn caricature for what is probably the typical Christian."
Author: Robert L. Short
286. "So green this summer and so fresh. There are white and gold daisies among the grass in front of an old wire fence, a meadow with some cows and far in the distance a low rising of the land with something golden on it. Hard to know what it is. No need to know."
Author: Robert M. Pirsig
287. "To be called a coward, I don't think that's fair."
Author: Rodney Alexander
288. "There was a beat of silence before Sin said blandly, "I have occasional nightmares about us having a threesome with that meat-head. I'm far from being easily shocked.""What?" Boyd looked completely taken aback, his eyebrows shooting up. "That's the last thing I thought I'd ever hear from you.""It isn't exactly a voluntary thing. It's quite horrifying. I usually wake up before he can put his dick in me though." Sin made a revolted expression, his lips twisting in a scowl of disgust."So I shouldn't expect to be propositioned for this threesome too in the near future?" Boyd asked jokingly.Sin stared at Boyd and didn't bother to reply."
Author: Santino Hassell
289. "Can we wake him out of it?" – Sundown"Well, you know, cowboy, that's a really good idea. Damn shame I didn't think of it, huh?" – Ren "Cut the sarcasm. And you're sure it's not a vision quest?" – Sundown"For the sake of our long-term friendship, I'm not even going to dignify that with the response it deserves." – Ren"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
290. "(Adron leveled a scowl that made him shrink back.)Jeeze, you ought to bottle that look. I know armies that would pay a fortune to have something that toxic in their arsenal. (Tiernan)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
291. "Even though you try to put people under control, it is impossible. You cannot do it. The best way to control people is to encourage them to be mischievous. Then they will be in control in a wider sense. To give your sheep or cow a large spacious meadow is the way to control him. So it is with people: first let them do what they want, and watch them. This is the best policy. To ignore them is not good. That is the worst policy. The second worst is trying to control them. The best one is to watch them, just to watch them, without trying to control them."
Author: Shunryu Suzuki
292. "I was the first judge in the 'Indian Idol' format. The biggest risk when you adapt a format from a country in the West is how to make it your own, so I remember at the press conference for Indian 'X Factor,' the press would ask, 'Who is Simon Cowell?' And I said 'Why don't you ask Simon Cowell, 'Who is Sonu Nigam?''"
Author: Sonu Nigam
293. "Why are you here?"His chest lifts on a deep breath. "I'm done.""Done with what?""Done letting you avoid me."I cock my head. I hadn't run him off? Could it be so simple? So easy? Poof! He's here whether I like it or not. I didn't even need to convince him that I had changed my mind? "Are you sure that's a good idea?"Because I'm not. Like the truest coward, when presented with my self-professed goal, doubts assail me. I'm not sure I'm ready for him. Even if being with him gets me the information I need about other prides, I'm still left with the issue of manifesting whenever I'm too close to him. And I want to be close to him. Can I be with him without being with him? In my true form?Am I capable of that kind of control?"I'm sure," he answers in a firm voice."
Author: Sophie Jordan
294. "Gods, I wish the world was full of passive women.He thougt for a moment longer, then scowled. On second thoughts, what a nightmare that'd be. It's the job of a man to fan the spark into flames, not quench it..."
Author: Steven Erikson
295. "Because no man wants to be a coward in front of a cheese."
Author: Terry Pratchett
296. "Only the winner and coward may survive."
Author: Toba Beta
297. "A coward dies a thousand times, a soldier dies but once."
Author: Tupac Shakur
298. "One can even kill a cow in self defence...."
Author: Vineet Asopa
299. "If you do not have an absolutely clear vision of something, where you can follow the light to the end of the tunnel, then it doesn't matter whether you're bold or cowardly, or whether you're stupid or intelligent. Doesn't get you anywhere."
Author: Werner Herzog
300. "Who seeks for better of thee, sauce his palateWith thy most operant poison! What is here?Gold? yellow, glittering, precious gold? No, gods,I am no idle votarist: roots, you clear heavens!Thus much of this will make black white, foul fair,Wrong right, base noble, old young, coward valiant.Ha, you gods! why this? what this, you gods? Why, thisWill lug your priests and servants from your sides,Pluck stout men's pillows from below their heads:This yellow slaveWill knit and break religions, bless the accursed,Make the hoar leprosy adored, place thievesAnd give them title, knee and approbationWith senators on the bench: this is itThat makes the wappen'd widow wed again;"
Author: William Shakespeare
