[Mrs. Wingare Regarded Him Through Slitted Blue Eyes. "Have You Any Idea, Rathbourne, How Utterly Detestable You Become When You Adopt That Tone Of Patient Superiority?""The Trouble Is, You Are Tired, Hungry, Anxious, And Afflicted With An Aching Hand," He Said. "The Trouble Is, You Had Confidently Expected A Happy Outcome Only To Have Your Hopes Dashed. Consequently, You Are Too Low-spirited At Present To Appreciate That I Am Perfect And Therefore Cannot Be Detestable."She Gazed At Him For A Moment, Up And Down, Then Up Again. Then, "Did Your Wife Ever Throw Things At You?" She Said.]

Jeffrey C Issac Editor In Chief Perspectives On Politics 12 2013 Quotes

"Books are important, and so serious intellectual attention to them is important. While promplty published scholarly articles are also important, the book format remains the only format that allows scholars, in every field and from every prespective, to take the time and space to develop an argument in depth. Books are at the heart of political science. Important books help to create new research agendas."

SA McAuley Quotes

"Your lingering presence erodes me. Heartbeat by heartbeat. Cell by aging cell. Washing away any sense of self I ever had. Intruding into a nothingness Ive struggled to find the pieces to fill. A jar filled with stones, piled with pebbles, topped with sand, only to be left with the knowledge that water, with enough time and persistence, has the power to wash it all away.Your name is on my lips. Frozen. A familiar cadence of syllables that once soothed me. A name I cant speak. Cant think of.Not on this shore, at our lake. Not on this day. When only a year ago, with a foreshadowing that is now ice in my veins, you stood next to me, in this jacket, your hand in mine, so warm, and stared out at this expanse and whispered in awe, "This is what a cold lake looks like."
