[Oh, I Am So Sick Of The Young Men Of The Present Day!" Exclaimed She, Rattling Away At The Instrument. "Poor, Puny Things, Not Fit To Stir A Step Beyond Papa's Park Gates: Nor To Go Even So Far Without Mama's Permission And Guardianship! Creatures So Absorbed In Care About Their Pretty Faces, And Their White Hands, And Their Small Feet; As If A Man Had Anything To Do With Beauty! As If Loveliness Were Not The Special Prerogative Of Woman—her Legitimate Appanage And Heritage! I Grant An Ugly Woman Is A Blot On The Fair Face Of Creation; But As To The Gentlemen, Let Them Be Solicitous To Possess Only Strength And Valour: Let Their Motto Be:—Hunt, Shoot, And Fight: The Rest Is Not Worth A Fillip. Such Should Be My Device, Were I A Man.]

Quotes About Woodwork

"A streak of green fire blasted out of the back of the shed, passed a foot over the heads of the mob, and burned a charred rosette in the woodwork over the door.Then came a voice that was a honeyed purr of sheer deadly menance."This is Lord Mountjoy Quickfang Winterforth IV, the hottest dragon in the city. It could burn your head clean off."Captain Vimes limped forward from the shadows. A small and extremely frightened golden dragon was clamped firmly under one arm. His other hand held it by the tail. The rioters watched it, hypnotized."Now I know what youre thinking," Vimes went on, softly. "Youre wondering, after all this excitement, has it got enough flame left? And, yknow, I aint so sure myself..."He leaned forward, sighting between the dragons ears, and his voice buzzed like a knife blade: "What youve got to ask yourself is: Am I feeling lucky?" - Author: Terry Pratchett

Quotes About Tax Forms

"Boredom is that awful state of inaction when the very medicine ― that is, activity ― which could solve it, is seen as odious.Archery? It is too cold, and besides, the butts need re-covering; the rats have been at the straw.Music? To hear it is tedious; to compose it, too taxing. And so on.Of all the afflictions, boredom is ultimately the most unmanning.Eventually, it transforms you into a great nothing who does nothing ― a cousin to sloth and a brother to melancholy." - Author: Margaret George

Quotes About Imagination And Art

"This may not be art as art commonly goes; the lack of discipline, of control, would seem to rule it out of that category. And yet Woolrichs lack of control over emotions is a crucial element in his work, not only because it intensifies the fragility and momentariness of love but also because it tears away the comfortable belief, evident in some of the greatest works of the human imagination such as Oedipus Rex, that nobility in the face of nothingness is possible. And if Woolrichs work is not art as commonly understood, there is an art beyond art, whose form is not the novel or story but the scream; and of this art Woolrich is beyond doubt a master.

Quotes About Bridges And Education

"When you control a mans thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his proper place and will stay in it.

His education makes it necessary." - Author: Carter G. Woodson

Quotes About Dorothea Middlemarch

"And Dorothea..she had no dreams of being praised above other women.Feeling that there was always something better which she might have done if she had only been better and known better, her full nature spent itself in deeds which left no great name on the earth, but the effect of her being on those around her was incalculable. For the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts and on all those Dorotheas who life faithfully their hidden lives and rest in unvisited tombs. Middlemarch" - Author: George Eliot
