Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Black
#1. Why not let people differ about their answers to the great mysteries of the Universe? Let each seek one's own way to the highest, to one's own sense of supreme loyalty in life, one's ideal of life. Let each philosophy, each world-view bring forth its truth and beauty to a larger perspective, that people may grow in vision, stature and dedication. #Quote by Algernon Black
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Diana Palmer
#2. Bring Cecily home," he said curtly. "I won't have her at risk, even in the slightest way."
"I'll take care of Cecily," came the terse reply. "She's better off without you in her life."
Tate's eyes widened. "I beg your pardon?" he asked, affronted.
"You know what I mean," Holden said. "Let her heal. She's too young to consign herself to spinsterhood over a man who doesn't even see her."
"Infatuation dies," Tate said.
Holden nodded. "Yes, it does. Goodbye."
"So does hero worship," he continued, laboring the point.
"And that's why after eight years, Cecily has had one raging affair after the other," he said facetiously.
The words had power. They wounded.
"You fool," Holden said in a soft tone. "Do you really think she'd let any man touch her except you?" He went to his office door and gestured toward the desk. "Don't forget your gadget," he added quietly.
"Wait!"
Holden paused with his hand on the doorknob and turned. "What?"
Tate held the device in his hands, watching the lights flicker on it. "Mixing two cultures when one of them is all but extinct is a selfish thing," he said after a minute. "It has nothing to do with personal feelings. It's a matter of necessity."
Holden let go of the doorknob and moved to stand directly in front of Tate. "If I had a son," he said, almost choking on the word, "I'd tell him that there are things even more important than lofty principles. I'd tell him…that love is a rare and pre #Quote by Diana Palmer
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Daniel Keyes
#3. Algernon is a pleasant companion. At mealtimes, he takes his place at the small gateleg table. He likes pretzels, and today he took a sip of beer while we watched the ballgame on TV. I think he rooted for the Yankees. #Quote by Daniel Keyes
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Diana Palmer
#4. Tell me!" Cecily insisted later, shaking Colby by both arms.
"Cut it out, you'll dismember me," Colby said, chuckling.
She let go of the artificial arm and wrapped both hands around the good one. "I want to know. Listen, this is my covert operation. You're just a stand-in!"
"I promised I wouldn't tell."
"You promised in Lakota. Tell me in English what you promised in Lakota."
He gave in. He did tell her, but not Leta, what was said, but only about the men coming to the reservation soon.
"We'll need the license plate number," she said. "It can be traced.
"Oh, of course," he said facetiously. "They'll certainly come here with their own license plate on the car so that everyone knows who they are!"
"Damn!"
He chuckled at her irritation. He was about to tell her about his alternative method when a big sport utility vehicle came flying down the dirt road and pulled up right in front of Leta's small house.
Tate Winthrop got out, wearing jeans and a buckskin jacket and sunglasses. His thick hair fell around his shoulders and down his back like a straight black silk curtain. Cecily stared at it with curious fascination. In all the years she'd known him, she'd very rarely seen his hair down.
"All you need is the war paint," Colby said in a resigned tone. He turned the uninjured cheek toward the newcomer. "Go ahead. I like matching scars."
Tate took off the dark glasses and looked from Cecily to Colby without smiling. "Holden #Quote by Diana Palmer
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cassandra Clare
#5. He only wished that she were still here. It was good to be here with Jem and Cecily and Charlotte, to be surrounded by their affection, but without her there would always be something missing, a Tessa-shaped part chiseled out of his heart that he would never get back. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Richard Kadrey
#6. Everyone in the world is a Charlie. The trick is to figure out which Charlie you're going to be. Charlie Manson. Charlie Starkweather. Or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."
"Charlie Chaplin."
"Charlie Parker."
"Charly… from Flowers for Algernon."
"Charlie Brown. #Quote by Richard Kadrey
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#7. Before Parting

A MONTH or twain to live on honeycomb
Is pleasant; but one tires of scented time,
Cold sweet recurrence of accepted rhyme,
And that strong purple under juice and foam
Where the wine's heart has burst;
Nor feel the latter kisses like the first.

Once yet, this poor one time; I will not pray
Even to change the bitterness of it,
The bitter taste ensuing on the sweet,
To make your tears fall where your soft hair lay
All blurred and heavy in some perfumed wise
Over my face and eyes.

And yet who knows what end the scythèd wheat
Makes of its foolish poppies' mouths of red?
These were not sown, these are not harvested,
They grow a month and are cast under feet
And none has care thereof,
As none has care of a divided love.

I know each shadow of your lips by rote,
Each change of love in eyelids and eyebrows;
The fashion of fair temples tremulous
With tender blood, and colour of your throat;
I know not how love is gone out of this,
Seeing that all was his.

Love's likeness there endures upon all these:
But out of these one shall not gather love.
Day hath not strength nor the night shade enough
To make love whole and fill his lips with ease,
As some bee-builded cell
Feels at filled lips the heavy honey swell.

I know not how this last month leaves your hair
Less full of purple colour #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#8. Behold, when thy face is made bare, he that loved thee shall hate;
Thy face shall be no more fair at the fall of thy fate
For thy life shall fall as a leaf and be shed as the rain;
And the veil of thine head shall be grief, and the crown shall be pain. #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Libba Bray
#9. I think that the lady dies not because she leaves the tower for the outside world but because she lets herself float through the world pulled by the current after a dream.
Do you mean she should of paddled Cecily asks.
Miss Moore laughs. In a manner of speaking yes.
Ann stops drumming. But it wouldn't matter whether she paddled or not. She's cursed. No matter what she does she'll die.
And she'll die if she stays in the tower too. Perhaps not for a long time but she will die. We all will. Miss Moore says softly. #Quote by Libba Bray
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily White
#10. Where'd you go?"
"The bowels of hell," his voice echoed back. "I thought we could go apartment hunting for you ... since you'll be moving here, and all. #Quote by Cecily White
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Blackwood
#11. The dusk rapidly deepened; the glades grew dark; the crackling of the fire and the wash of little waves along the rocky lake shore were the only sounds audible. The wind had dropped with the sun, and in all that vast world of branches nothing stirred. Any moment, it seemed, the woodland gods, who are to be worshipped in silence and loneliness, might stretch their mighty and terrific outlines among the trees. #Quote by Algernon Blackwood
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Daniel Keyes
#12. Strauss again brought up my need to speak and wrtie simply and directly so that people will understand me. He reminds me that language is sometimes a barrier instead of a pathway. Ironic to find myself on the other side of the intellectual fence. #Quote by Daniel Keyes
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Sidney
#13. The only ends for which governments are constituted, and obedience rendered to them, are the obtaining of and protection; and they who cannot provide for both give the people a right of taking such ways as best please themselves, in order to their own safety. #Quote by Algernon Sidney
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily Von Ziegesar
#14. Instead, she poured herself another drink. Tinsley was horrible, yes, but at least she was open about it. Callie couldn't help feeling like Brett and Jenny were just as bad … just more secretive. But maybe it was just the wine talking. Maybe. #Quote by Cecily Von Ziegesar
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Daniel Keyes
#15. Just leave me alone. I'm not myself. I'm falling apart, and I don't want you here. #Quote by Daniel Keyes
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily Strong
#16. There have been some terrible winters in Chicago, where it feels like I'm literally being punched in the face, and everyone walks around looking stunned like they've just witnessed a murder. #Quote by Cecily Strong
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Rob Sheffield
#17. Before I met Maria, I was your basic craven hermit. I spent most of my time in my room, in love with my walls, hiding out from the world with my
fanzines and my records. I thought I was happier that way. I had developed these monastic habits to protect myself from something, probably, but
whatever it was, the monastic habits had turned into the bigger problem. In my headphones, I led a life of romance and incident and intrigue, none
of which had anything to do with the world outside my Walkman. I was an English major, obsessed with Oscar Wilde and Walter Pater and Algernon
Swinburne, thrilling to the exploits of my decadent aesthete poet idols, even though my only experience with decadence was reading about it. #Quote by Rob Sheffield
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily Brown
#18. My process is really quite organic, and starting a painting is one of the best parts for me. I always start in quite a loose and free way. I often put down one ground colour to begin with and then play off that. #Quote by Cecily Brown
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#19. Cold autumn, wan with wrath of wind and rain,
Saw pass a soul sweet as the sovereign tune
That death smote silent when he smote again. #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily McMillan
#20. I think the big turning moment was when I joined the student political action club and started studying nonviolent civil disobedience in response to the Iraq War. The first anti-Bush protest in Atlanta was the first protest that I'd ever been to, and I helped organize the school walkout when I was a junior. It was a really solidifying moment. #Quote by Cecily McMillan
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Blackwood
#21. They talked trees from morning till night. It stirred in her the old subconscious trail of dread, a trail that led ever into the darkness of big woods; and such feelings, as her early evangelical training taught her, were temptings. To regard them in any other way was to play with danger. #Quote by Algernon Blackwood
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Tessa Dare
#22. At last she halted at a rotted, mossy stump. "I cannot marry you," she told the clump of toadstools flourishing at its base. "I'm so terribly sorry. I should have told you years ago, but - "
"For God's sake, Cecily." His soft laugh startled her, and she lifted her gaze. "You can't do this, not yet. How can a lady refuse a man, when he hasn't even proposed? I won't stand for it."
"It's not right, Denny. I've known for some time now that we wouldn't ... that I couldn't ... "
He shushed her gently, placing his hands on her shoulders. "The truth is, we know nothing of what could be or would be. We've been delaying this conversation for years now, haven't we? I've been waiting for ... Well, I hardly know what I've been waiting for. Something indefinable, I suppose. And you've been waiting for Luke. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily Nicholson
#23. growing up we always had a pack of dogs, usually four
held in prestige among many familiars
them and a few cats we let indoors
though we loved every bird, mouse, tadpole, crayfish
froze in a spring frost we grew more conscious of weather
wide skies read power lines hum dove coos
the leaves turnt dirt melt change on the breeze creaks
and rain the gravel trucks of spring full by slow
then empties in summer barrelling too fast past our hillbilly stake
mother threw potatoes later hard to explain
to the police who got called in from a county over
drove out to say, "ma'am, you can't throw potatoes at trucks"
then all polite as we stood with our pack and stuck to our guns #Quote by Cecily Nicholson
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Diana Palmer
#24. Colby arrived the next day, with stitches down one lean cheek and a new prosthesis. He held it up as Cecily came out to the car to greet him. He held it up as Cecily came out to the car to greet him. "Nice, huh? Doesn't it look more realistic than the last one?"
"What happened to the last one?" she asked.
"Got blown off. Don't ask where," he added darkly.
"I know nothing," she assured him. "Come on in. Leta made sandwiches."
Leta had only seen Colby once, on a visit with Tate. She was polite, but a little remote, and it showed.
"She doesn't like me," Colby told Cecily when they were sitting on the steps later that evening.
"She thinks I'm sleeping with you," she said simply." So does Tate."
"Why?"
"Because I let him think I was," she said bluntly.
He gave her a hard look. "Bad move, Cecily."
"I won't let him think I'm waiting around for him to notice me," she said icily. "He's already convinced that I'm in love with him, and that's bad enough. I can't have him know that I'm…well, what I am. I do have a little pride."
"I'm perfectly willing, if you're serious," he said matter-of-factly. His face broke into a grin, belying the solemnity of the words. "Or are you worried that I might not be able to handle it with one arm?"
She burst out laughing and pressed affectionately against his side. "I adore you, I really do. But I had a bad experience in my teens. I've had therapy and all, but it's still sort of traumatic for me #Quote by Diana Palmer
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#25. No blast of air or fire of sun Puts out the light whereby we run With girdled loins our lamplit race, And each from each takes heart of grace And spirit till his turn be done. #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#26. For winter's rains and ruins are over, And all the season of snows and sins; The days dividing lover and lover, The light that loses, the night that wins; And time remembered is grief forgotten, And frosts are slain and flowers begotten, And in green underwood and cover Blossom by blossom the spring begins. #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily Von Ziegesar
#27. You want to fly in jets, and I just want to fly
-Baby Carlyle #Quote by Cecily Von Ziegesar
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily White
#28. You're not being fair," I said.
"Life isn't fair."
"Yeah, and no man is an island. Any other cliches you'd like to share? #Quote by Cecily White
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cassandra Clare
#29. It was good to be here with Jem and Cecily an Charlotte, to be surrounded by their affection, but without her there would always be something missing, a Tessa-shaped part chiseled out of his heart that he could never get back. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily Von Ziegesar
#30. Vanessa insisted that film was exactly like poetry. Nothing necessarily had to happen; you just had to feel something. #Quote by Cecily Von Ziegesar
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily Brown
#31. Often, I find it really hard to see what I'm doing when I'm in the thick of things. I can get too precious and have to force myself to put my paintings aside. There's a wall in my studio where I hang paintings that I think are done or nearly done. Over time, I'll realise which ones are working and which aren't. #Quote by Cecily Brown
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Diana Palmer
#32. She pulled the shawl closer as a tall, lithe figure cut across the parking lot and joined her at the passenger door.
"You're already famous," Colby Lane told her, his dark eyes twinkling in his lean, scarred face. "You'll see yourself on the evening news, if you live long enough to watch it." He jerked a thumb over his shoulder. "Tate's on his way right now."
"Unlock this thing and get me out of here!" she squeaked.
He chuckled. "Coward."
He unlocked the door and let her climb in. By the time he got behind the wheel and took off, Tate was striding across the parking lot with blood in his eye.
Cecily blew him a kiss as Colby gunned the engine down the busy street.
"You're living dangerously tonight," Colby told her. "He knows where you live," he added.
"He should. He paid for the apartment," she added in a sharp, hurt tone. She wrapped her arms closer around her. "I don't want to go home, Colby. Can I stay with you tonight?"
She knew, as few other people did, that Colby Lane was still passionately in love with his ex-wife, Maureen. He had nothing to do with other women even two years after his divorce was final. He drank to excess from time to time, but he wasn't dangerous. Cecily trusted no one more. He'd been a good friend to her, as well as to Tate, over the years.
"He won't like it," he said.
She let out a long breath. "What does it matter now?" she asked wearily. "I've burned my bridges."
"I don't know why that socia #Quote by Diana Palmer
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Sidney
#33. Such as have reason, understanding, or common sense, will, and ought to make use of it in those things that concern themselves and their posterity, and suspect the words of such as are interested in deceiving or persuading them not to see with their own eyes. #Quote by Algernon Sidney
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Robert Graves
#34. Nor had I any illusions about Algernon Charles Swinburne, who often used to stop my perambulator when he met it on Nurses' Walk, at the edge of Wimbledon Common, and pat me on the head and kiss me: he was an inveterate pram-stopper and patter and kisser. #Quote by Robert Graves
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Blackwood
#35. because what one thinks finds expression in words, and what one says, happens. #Quote by Algernon Blackwood
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Blackwood
#36. Great revelations of nature, of course, never fail to impress in one way or another, and I was no stranger to moods of the kind. Mountains overawe and oceans terrify, while the mystery of great forests exercises a spell peculiarly its own. But all these, at one point or another, somewhere link on intimately with human life and human experience. They stir comprehensible, even if alarming, emotions. They tend on the whole to exalt. #Quote by Algernon Blackwood
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily White
#37. Lisa's friendship was less of a choice than a fact of life. It worked out well - kind of symbiotic, actually. I beat up anyone who messed with her, and she made sure my homework got done. Fair trade, right?

Honestly, if not for Lisa's constant nagging, I'd probably still be crouched in our kindergarten sandbox eating glue and playing Neferet demons. #Quote by Cecily White
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#38. When the hounds of Spring are on winter's traces,
The mother of months in meadow or plain
Fills the shadows and windy places
With lisp of leaves and ripple of rain. #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Sidney
#39. Nay, all laws must fall, human societies that subsist by them be dissolved, and all innocent persons be exposed to the violence of the most wicked, if men might not justly defend themselves against injustice by their own natural right, when the ways prescribed by publick authority cannot be taken. #Quote by Algernon Sidney
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Cecily Von Ziegesar
#40. You know when you see a gorgeous boy on the street and you say to your friend, "Look at him!" and then your friend makes a face like, ugly? We all have such totally varied tastes that someone is going to look at you and think, yum-yum dee-lish, no matter what you think you look like. You just have to learn to see what they see. #Quote by Cecily Von Ziegesar
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Sidney
#41. [A]ll popular and well-mixed governments [republics] ... are ever established by wise and good men, and can never be upheld otherwise than by virtue: The worst men always conspiring against them, they must fall, if the best have not power to preserve them ... [and] unless they be preserved in a great measure free from vices ... #Quote by Algernon Sidney
Algernon And Cecily quotes by Algernon Blackwood
#42. The loneliness of the place had entered our very bones, and silence seemed natural, for after a bit the sound of our voices became a trifle unreal and forced; whispering would have been the fitting mode of communication, I felt, and the human voice, always rather absurd amid the roar of the elements, now carried with it something almost illegitimate. It was like talking out loud in church, or in some place where it was not lawful, perhaps not quite safe, to be overheard. #Quote by Algernon Blackwood
