Adinas Jewels quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#1. That was when they noticed that every musician on the stage was wearing mourning black. That was when they shut up. And when the conductor raised his arms, it was not a symphony that filled the cavernous space.
It was the Song of Eyllwe.
Then Song of Fenharrow. And Melisande. And Terrasen. Each nation that had people in those labour camps.
And finally, not for pomp or triumph, but to mourn what they had become, they played the Song of Adarlan.
When the final note finished, the conductor turned to the crowd, the musicians standing with him. As one, they looked to the boxes, to all those jewels bought with the blood of a continent. And without a word, without a bow or another gesture, they walked off the stage.
The next morning, by royal decree, the theatre was shut down.
No one saw those musicians or their conductor again. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Adinas Jewels quotes by R.L. LaFevers
#2. Jewels can be replaced, cousin. Independence, once lost, cannot. #Quote by R.L. LaFevers
Adinas Jewels quotes by Maurice Chevalier
#3. It is always the same: women bedeck themselves with jewels and furs, and men with wit and quotations. #Quote by Maurice Chevalier
Adinas Jewels quotes by Bernd Heinrich
#4. Around a bend, a pair of wood ducks makes squeaking calls and rises with splashing and then whistling wings. You do not see the male's brilliant garb of red, purple, green, and blue. But you know you are hearing the jewels of the marsh. #Quote by Bernd Heinrich
Adinas Jewels quotes by Libba Bray
#5. Right now, with that lock of hair falling in his eyes, he's the brother I've missed, the one who once brought me stones from the sea, told me they were rajah's jewels. I want to tell him that I'm afraid I'm going mad by degrees and that nothing seems entirely real to me anymore. I want to tell him about the vision, have him pat me on the head in that irritating way and dismiss it with a perfectly logical doctor's explaination. I want to ask him if it's possible that a girl can be born unlovable, or does she just become that way? I want to tell him everything and have him understand. #Quote by Libba Bray
Adinas Jewels quotes by Peter Carey
#6. She had no criticism of his dress, which was bagged at the knees, dropping at the lapels, rucked around the buttons, while she-although she wore a flowing white cotton-appeared (she knew it and wished it was not so) as starched and pressed as a Baptist in a riding habit.

They were different, and yet not ill matched.

They had both grown used to the attentions that are the eccentric's lot-the covert glances, smiles, whispers, worse. Lucinda was accustomed to looking at no one in the street. It was an out-of-focus town of men with seas of bobbing hats.

But on this night she felt the streets accept them. She thought: When we are two, they do not notice us. They think us a match. What wisdom does a mob have? It is a hydra, an organism, stupid or dangerous in much of its behaviour, but could it have, in spite of this, a proper judgement about which of its component parts fit best together?

They pushed past bold-eyed young women with too many ribbons and jewels, past tight-laced maidens and complacent merchants with their bellies pushing so forcefully against their waistcoats that their shirts showed above their trousers. Lucinda was happy. Her arm rested on Oscar's arm.

She thought: Anyone can see I have been crying. She thought: I have pink eyes like a dormouse. But she did not really care. #Quote by Peter Carey
Adinas Jewels quotes by Shirley Jackson
#7. It was important to choose the exact device to drive Charles away. An imperfect magic, or one incorrectly used, might only bring more disaster upon our house. I thought of my mother's jewels, since this was a day of sparkling things, but they might not be strong on a dull day, and Constance would be angry if I took them out of the box where they belonged, when she herself had decided against it. I thought of books, which are always strongly protective, but my father's book had fallen from the tree and let Charles in; books, then, were perhaps powerless against Charles. I lay back against the tree trunk and thought of magic; if Charles had not gone away before three days I would smash the mirror in the hall. #Quote by Shirley Jackson
Adinas Jewels quotes by Dean Koontz
#8. Beyond the slumpstone wall lay a backyard, a swimming pool. Dappled with morning light and tree shadows, the water glimmered in shades of blue from sapphire to turquoise, as might a trove of jewels left by long-dead pirates who had sailed a sea since vanished. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Adinas Jewels quotes by Aldo Leopold
#9. The real jewel of my disease-ridden woodlot is the prothonotary warbler ... The flash of his gold-and-blue plumage amid the dank decay of the June woods is in itself proof that dead trees are transmuted into living animals, and vice versa. #Quote by Aldo Leopold
Adinas Jewels quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#10. A mind does not receive truth as a chest receives jewels that are put into it, but as the stomach takes up food into the system. It is no longer food, but flesh, and is assimilated. The appetite and the power of digestion measure our right to knowledge. He has it who can use it. As soon as our accumulation overruns our invention or power to use, the evils of intellectual gluttony begin, - congestion of the brain, apoplexy and strangulation. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Adinas Jewels quotes by Anna Magnani
#11. Ah, the feeling you get holding a diamond in your hand! It seems to bore into your skin, to burn, to breathe. It's like holding a bit of the moon in your hand. #Quote by Anna Magnani
Adinas Jewels quotes by James Baldwin
#12. His mind was like the sea itself: troubled, and too deep for the bravest man's descent, throwing up now and again, for the naked eye to wonder at, treasure and debris long forgotten on the bottom - bones and jewels, fantastic shells, jelly that had once been flesh, pearls that had once been eyes. And he was at the mercy of this sea, hanging there with darkness all around him. #Quote by James Baldwin
Adinas Jewels quotes by Suzy Kassem
#13. Birds were created to record everything. They were not designed just to be beautiful jewels in the sky, but to serve as the eyes of heaven. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Adinas Jewels quotes by Leslie Ludy
#14. Whenever you surrender the most precious areas of your life to GOD, it's like trading in a pile of worthless pebbles for a truckload of priceless jewels. #Quote by Leslie Ludy
Adinas Jewels quotes by A.G. Howard
#15. You make me crazy!"
His eyes light up, glittering onyx against a backdrop of violet jewels. "And you inflame my heart. #Quote by A.G. Howard
Adinas Jewels quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#16. The man might have died in a fit; but then the jewels are missing," mused the Inspector, "Ha! I have a theory. These flashes come upon me at times ... What do you think of this, Holmes? Sholto was, on his own confession, with his brother last night. The brother died in a fit, on which Sholto walked off the treasure! How's that?"
"On which the dead man very considerately got up and locked the door on the inside," said Holmes. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Adinas Jewels quotes by Arthur Penrhyn Stanley
#17. Posterity preserves only what will pack into small compass. Jewels are handed down from age to age; less portable valuables disappear. #Quote by Arthur Penrhyn Stanley
Adinas Jewels quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#18. Improve your spare moments and they will become the brightest gems in your life. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Adinas Jewels quotes by Lewis Mumford
#19. Kings have always boasted that their slightest wishes were commands. The classic proof of their power and their success was their command of limitless amounts of food and drink, limitless quantities of clothes and jewels: the services of innumerable slaves, servants, and officials: limitless sensual stimulations, and not least, limitless opportunities for sexual intercourse, for even here erotic delight was measured in gross quantitative terms. The affluence that once was monopolized by the king and his court is now being held up as the ultimate gift of the power system to mankind at large. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Adinas Jewels quotes by Ricardo Guadalupe
#20. I'd say a watch is like a jewel of the man. It's really to distinguish yourself, because in your watch people can see who you are, more or less, what you want to represent to other people. #Quote by Ricardo Guadalupe
Adinas Jewels quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#21. know you think I'm stupid; I guess you're probably right. But if you really cared, I figured that you wouldn't make me feel stupid, too. Jewels #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Adinas Jewels quotes by Mary-Jean Harris
#22. You are one of us, one of those who knows without knowing, and one who will live and die in dreams that blend with this world. No, I am no gypsy, just one who has read a good many books. It is only through reading those great jewels of wisdom that one may see a story in a glint of sunlight, an epic unfold within one's eyes. There are books all around us. Yet it takes reading a good many books by we mortals to be able to see them. #Quote by Mary-Jean Harris
Adinas Jewels quotes by Hedy Lamarr
#23. I'd rather wear jewels in my hair than anywhere else. The face should have the advantage of this brilliance. #Quote by Hedy Lamarr
Adinas Jewels quotes by Pope Pius II
#24. Common men should esteem learning as silver, noble men prize it as gold, and princes as jewels. #Quote by Pope Pius II
Adinas Jewels quotes by Lady Augusta Gregory
#25. What is whiter than snow?' he said. 'The truth,' said Grania.
'What is the best colour?' said Finn. 'The colour of childhood,' said she.
'What is hotter than fire?' 'The face of a hospitable man when he sees a stranger coming in, and the house empty.'
'What has a taste more bitter than poison?' 'The reproach of an enemy.'
'What is best for a champion?' 'His doings to be high, and his pride to be low.'
'What is the best of jewels?' 'A knife.'
'What is sharper than a sword?' 'The wit of a woman between two men.'
'What is quicker than the wind?' said Finn then. 'A woman's mind,' said Grania. And indeed she was telling no lie when she said that. #Quote by Lady Augusta Gregory
Adinas Jewels quotes by Rumi
#26. There is a life in you, search that life, search the secret jewel in the mountain of your body. #Quote by Rumi
Adinas Jewels quotes by Susanna Clarke
#27. The first dinner-party of a bride's career is a momentous occasion, entailing a world of small anxieties. The accomplishments which have won her acclaim in the three years since she left the schoolroom are no longer enough. It is no longer enough to dress exquisitely, to chuse jewels exactly appropriate to the situation, to converse in French, to play the pianoforte and sing. Now she must turn her attention to French cooking and French wines. Though other people may advise her upon these important matters, her own taste and inclinations must guide her. She is sure to despise her mother's style of entertaining and wish to do things differently. In London fashionable people dine out four, five times a week. However will a new bride - nineteen years old and scarcely ever in a kitchen before - think of a meal to astonish and delight such jaded palates? #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Adinas Jewels quotes by Dean Koontz
#28. Rush headlong and hard at life
or just sit at home and wait.
All things good and all the wrong
will come right to you: it's fate.

Hear the music, dance if you can.
Dress in rags or wear your jewels.
Drink your choice, nurse your fear
in this old honkytonk of fools. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Adinas Jewels quotes by Mark Driscoll
#29. The cross is the great jewel of the Christian faith and like every great jewel it has many precious facets that are each worthy of examining for their brilliance and beauty. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Adinas Jewels quotes by William Shakespeare
#30. She is mine own, And I as rich in having such a jewel As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl, The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Adinas Jewels quotes by Paul Bowles
#31. The only thing that makes life worth living is the possibility of experiencing now and then a perfect moment. And perhaps even more than that, it's having the ability to recall such moments in their totality, to contemplate them like jewels. #Quote by Paul Bowles
Adinas Jewels quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#32. A creative life is an amplified life. It's a bigger life, a happier life, an expanded life, and a hell of a lot more interesting life. Living in this manner - continually and stubbornly bringing forth the jewels that are hidden within you - is a fine art, in and of itself. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Adinas Jewels quotes by Freeman Dyson
#33. Galison uses the phrase "critical opalescence" to sum up the story of what happened in 1905 when relativity was discovered. Critical opalescence is a strikingly beautiful effect that is seen when water is heated to a temperature of 374 degrees Celsius under high pressure. 374 degrees is called the critical temperature of water. It is the temperature at which water turns continuously into steam without boiling. At the critical temperature and pressure, water and steam are indistinguishable. They are a single fluid, unable to make up its mind whether to be a gas or a liquid. In that critical state, the fluid is continually fluctuating between gas and liquid, and the fluctuations are seen visually as a multicolored sparkling. The sparkling is called opalescence because it is also seen in opal jewels which have a similar multicolored radiance. #Quote by Freeman Dyson
Adinas Jewels quotes by Patricia A. McKillip
#34. She spread her hands. That morning they had been soft as feathers, jeweled, polished, and perfumed. Now they were crisscrossed with blood and dirt, wearing only bruises for jewels #Quote by Patricia A. McKillip
Adinas Jewels quotes by Mark Twain
#35. Frankness is a jewel; only the young can afford it. #Quote by Mark Twain
