Favorite Gibe Quotes

1. "He was, I take it, the most perfect reasoning and observing machine that the world has seen, but as a lover he would have placed himself in a false position. He never spoke of the softer passions, save with a gibe and a sneer. They were admirable things for the observer- excellent for drawing the veil from men's motives and actions. But for the trained observer to admit such intrusions into his own delicate and finely adjusted temperament was to introduce a distracting factor which might throw a doubt upon all his mental results. Grit in a sensitive instrument, or a crack in one of his own high-power lenses, would not be more disturbing than a strong emotion in a nature such as his."
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
2. "A woman's mind is her most precious weapon. It must not be employed clumsily or prematurely. Much like the aforementioned knife in the back, a clever gibe is most effective when it is unanticipated."
Author: Brandon Sanderson
3. "Pára, meu coração!Não penses! Deixa o pensar na cabeça!Ó meu Deus, meu Deus, meu Deus!Hoje já não faço anos.Duro.Somam-se-me dias.Serei velho quando o for.Mais nada.Raiva de não ter trazido o passado roubado na algibeira!...O tempo em que festejavam o dia dos meus anos!..."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
4. "Azevedo Bandeira is an expert in the art of progressive intimidation, in the satanic maneuver of gradually humiliating his interlocutor by combining verities and gibes."
Author: Jorge Luis Borges
5. "While Nape was making the bread and Dryas boiling the ram, Daphnis and Chloe had time to go forth as far as the ivy-bush; and when he had set his snares again and pricked his lime-twigs, they not only catched good store of birds, but had a sweet collation of kisses without intermission, and a dear conversation in the language of love: "Chloe, I came for thy sake." "I know it, Daphnis." "'Tis long of thee that I destroy the poor birds." "What wilt thou with me?" "Remember me." "I remember thee, by the Nymphs by whom heretofore I have sworn in yonder cave, whither we will go as soon as ever the snow melts." "But it lies very deep, Chloe, and I fear I shall melt before the snow." "Courage, man; the Sun burns hot." "I would it burnt like that fire which now burns my very heart." "You do but gibe and cozen me!" "I do not, by the goats by which thou didst once bid me to swear to thee."
Author: Longus
6. "Invenções há, que se transformam ou acabam; as mesmas instituições morrem; o relógio é definitivo e perpétuo. O derradeiro homem, ao despedir-se do sol frio e gasto, há de ter um relógio na algibeira, para saber a hora exata em que morre."
Author: Machado De Assis
7. "Gibe."
Author: Michael Grant
8. "I would never normally approach a woman in this way, but I couldn't help but notice that you have the eyes of a lady I was once desperately in love with. ""What a shame to love only once," she said, showing her white teeth in a wicked smile. "I've heard some men can manage twice or even more."I ignored her gibe. "I am only a fool once. Never will I love again."
Author: Patrick Rothfuss
9. "I sada znam i da sam glupan, i da sam zato u lancima, i da sam zato u karanteni. Jer glupost nije defekt - ona je bolest. Bolest neizlježiva ako je urodena. Izlijeciti se može samo onaj tko se njome zarazio. Defekt nije zarazan, i on se ne lijeci, nego ispravlja. Zato glupost ne valja praštati, pa ni sebi. Ucili su nas da izujemo cipelu ako šetamo sa hromim. Hromost je defekt, pa ni pred njom pametni ne žmire, nego rade plastiku i proteze. A biti obazriv prema glupanu, gore je nego skidati cipelu. To je kao da se iz solidarnosti grlimo s gubavcem, i gore još, jer glupost je pogibeljnija od mnogih strašnih bolesti - opasna je i zdravima."
Author: Slobodan Novak
10. "Out of the temptation of Hate, and burned by the fire of Despair, triumphant over Doubt, and steeled by Sacrifice against Humiliation, . . . He bent to all the gibes and prejudices, to all hatred and discrimination with that rare courtesy which is the armor of pure souls. . . . he simply worked, inspiring the young, rebuking the old, helping the weak, guiding the strong."
Author: W.E.B. Du Bois
