Biddlecombe England quotes by Alex Webb
#2. Three years after my first trip to Haiti, I realized there was another emotional note that had to be reckoned with: the intense, vibrant color of these worlds. Searing light and intense color seemed somehow embedded in the cultures that I had begun working in, so utterly different from the gray-brown reticence of my New England background. Since then, I have worked predominantly in color. #Quote by Alex Webb
Biddlecombe England quotes by Harriet Jacobs
#3. My visit to England is a memorable event in my life, from the fact of my having there received strong, religious impressions. The contemptuous manner in which the communion had been administered to colored people in my native place; the church membership of Dr. Flint and others like him; and the buying and selling of slaves, by professed ministers of the gospel, had given me a prejudice against the Episcopal church. The whole service seemed to me a mockery and a sham. But my home in Steventon was in the home of a clergyman, who was a true disciple of Jesus. The beauty of his daily life inspired me with faith in the genuineness of Christian professions. Grace entered my heart, and I knelt at the communion table, I trust, in true humility of soul. #Quote by Harriet Jacobs
Biddlecombe England quotes by Francis Amalfi
#4. In the Fukien province of China, the Dutch learned the word tay, which means "tea" in the local dialect, and with this sound it was introduced to Europe. In fact, in Ireland and England it was pronounced tay until the start of the eighteenth century, after which the word was derived to tee and then tea - as we know it today. #Quote by Francis Amalfi
Biddlecombe England quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#5. American men," said Nancy gravely, "don't know how to drink."
"What?" Jim was startled.
"In fact," she went on carelessly, "they don't know how to do anything very well. The one thing I regret in my life is that I wasn't born in England."
"In England?"
"Yes. It's the one regret of my life that I wasn't. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Biddlecombe England quotes by Jack O'Connell

#7. My life is really so much based in England. #Quote by Jamie Oliver
Biddlecombe England quotes by Judith McNaught
#8. Well, what happened to your scruples in the woodcutter's cottage? You knew I thought you'd already left when I went inside."
"Why did you stay," he countered smoothly, "when you realized I was still there?"
In confused distress Elizabeth raked her hair off her forehead. "I knew I shouldn't do it," she admitted. "I don't know why I remained."
"You stayed for the same reason I did," he informed her bluntly. "We wanted each other."
"I was wrong," she protested a little wildly. "Dangerous and-foolish!"
"Foolish or not," he said grimly, "I wanted you. I want you now." Elizabeth made the mistake of looking at him, and his amber eyes captured hers against her will, holding them imprisoned. The shawl she'd been clutching as if it was a lifeline to safety slid from her nerveless hand and dangled at her side, but Elizabeth didn't notice.
"Neither of us has anything to gain by continuing this pretense that the weekend in England is over and forgotten," he said bluntly. "Yesterday proved that it wasn't over, if it proved nothing else, and it's never been forgotten-I've remembered you all this time, and I know damn well you've remembered me."
Elizabeth wanted to deny it; she sensed that if she did, he'd be so disgusted with her deceit that he'd turn on his heel and leave her. She lifted her chin, unable to tear her gaze from his, but she was too affected by the things he'd just admitted to her to lie to him. "All right," she said shakily, "you win. I've #Quote by Judith McNaught
Biddlecombe England quotes by David Cameron
#9. I'm a classic Church of England member, but part of its strength is the fact that it doesn't ask us to sign up to too much of a canon ... but I've always found the teachings of Jesus and the Bible quite useful as a sort of handy guide. #Quote by David Cameron
Biddlecombe England quotes by Ralph Bellamy
#10. When an American says that he loves his country, he means not only that he loves the New England hills, the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains, the great mountains and the sea. He means that he loves an inner air, inner life in which freedom lives. In which a man can draw the breath of self-respect. #Quote by Ralph Bellamy
Biddlecombe England quotes by Barbara Pym
#11. Sitting aimlessly in bedrooms- often on the bed itself- is another characteristic feature of the English holidays. The meal was over and it was only twenty five past seven. 'The evening stretches before us,' Viola said gloomily. #Quote by Barbara Pym
Biddlecombe England quotes by Mark Williams
#12. Being asked to play one of the butlers is like being picked to play for England. All you have to do is think of the great butlers from the past - Terry-Thomas in 'How To Murder Your Wife,' John Gielgud in 'Arthur' and Denholm Elliott in 'Trading Places.' #Quote by Mark Williams

Biddlecombe England quotes by Emily Bronte
#16. In all of England, I do not believe that I could have fixed on a situation so completely removed from the stir of society. A perfect misanthropist's Heaven #Quote by Emily Bronte
Biddlecombe England quotes by Ajahn Chah
#17. Buddha once saw a jackal, a wild dog, run out of the forest where he was staying. It stood still for a while, then it ran into the underbrush, and then out again. Then it ran into a tree hollow, then out again. Then it went into a cave, only to run out again. One minute it stood, the next it ran, then it lay down, then it jumped up. The jackal had the mange. When it stood, the mange would eat into its skin, so it would run. Running, it was still uncomfortable, so it would stop. Standing, it was still uncomfortable, so it would lie down. Then it would jump up again, running to the underbrush, the tree hollow, never staying still. The Buddha said, "Monks, did you see that jackal this afternoon? Standing, it suffered. Running, it suffered. Sitting, it suffered. Lying down, it suffered. It blamed standing for its discomfort. It blamed sitting. It blamed running and lying down. It blamed the tree, the underbrush, and the cave. In fact, the problem was with none of those things. The problem was with his mange." We are just the same as that jackal. Our discontent is due to wrong view. Because we don't exercise sense restraint, we blame our suffering on externals. Whether we live in Thailand, America or England, we aren't satisfied. Why not? Because we still have wrong view. Just that! So wherever we go, we aren't content. But just as that jackal would be content wherever it went as soon as its mange was cured, so would we be content wherever we went once we rid ourselves of wrong vi #Quote by Ajahn Chah
Biddlecombe England quotes by Fred Trueman
#18. England's always expecting. No wonder they call her the Mother Country #Quote by Fred Trueman
Biddlecombe England quotes by Erica Ridley
#19. There's a Lady Amelia Pembroke here to see you, my lord. She was most insistent."

Benedict glanced up from his desk. "I trust you informed her that I was not receiving, and refused to let her in?"

"Of course." The butler hesitated before continuing, "She said she would simply wait until you are receiving."

Benedict put down his pen. "Wait where, pray?"

"Upon the front step, my lord. I'm afraid the lady brought... the lady brought... a book. She cannot be budged. #Quote by Erica Ridley
Biddlecombe England quotes by Dudley North
#20. It is said, that in Holland Interest is lower than in England. #Quote by Dudley North
Biddlecombe England quotes by Nate Berkus
#21. I do shop online! But I'm shopping online mostly in the home categories - One Kings Lane and Gilt. At a lot of architectural websites, I buy a lot of hardware for cabinetry like hinges and things like that from England. So, you know, for me, I shop at Net-A-Porter, but I don't really shop that much for clothing online. #Quote by Nate Berkus
Biddlecombe England quotes by Susanna Clarke
#22. A patrol had been sent out to look at the road between two towns, but some Portuguese had come along and told the patrol that this was one of the English magician's roads and was certain to disappear in an hour or two taking everyone upon it to Hell - or possibly England. #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Biddlecombe England quotes by Wendy Higgins
#23. I had a tattoo once," said Kaidan. "Last year, just before we left England."
"What do you mean, you had one 'once'?"
"Bloody thing was gone by the morning!" His voice was indignant. "Sheets were black with ink. I put myself through all of that for hours, and my body just pushed it back out!"
And once again we were both in a fit of hysterics, sharing the world's best inside joke. We were doubled over, unable to breathe, and I accidentally snorted. Kaidan pointed at me and laughed harder, clutching his stomach.
"What was your tattoo?" I managed to push the words out.
"You had to ask. It was a deadly-looking pair of black wings on my shoulder blades."
Kaidan and I started roaring again, muscles clenching from the exertion.
We had no way of knowing it would be our last reason to laugh for a very long time. #Quote by Wendy Higgins
Biddlecombe England quotes by John Mitchel
#24. The Irish People are expecting famine day by day... and they ascribe it unanimously, not so much to the rule of heaven as to the greedy and cruel policy of England. Be that right or wrong, that is their feeling. They believe that the season as they roll are but ministers of England's rapacity; that their starving children cannot sit down to their scanty meal but they see the harpy claw of England in their dish. They behold their own wretched food melting in rottenness off the face of the earth, and they see heavy-laden ships, freighted with the yellow corn their own hands have sown and reaped, spreading all sail for England; they see it and with every grain of that corn goes a heavy curse. Again the people believe - no matter whether truly or falsely - that if they should escape the hunger and the fever their lives are not safe from judges and juries. They do not look upon the law of the land as a terror to evil-doers, and a praise to those who do well; they scowl on it as an engine of foreign rule, ill-omened harbinger of doom. #Quote by John Mitchel
Biddlecombe England quotes by C.F. Joyce
#25. I'd have been queen of all England, but Massachusetts haunted me and wouldn't let me go. #Quote by C.F. Joyce
Biddlecombe England quotes by Ben Kingsley
#26. In England, it's now Sir Ben. Mister has just disappeared. It's not even on my passport anymore. They've taken Mister away from me. #Quote by Ben Kingsley
Biddlecombe England quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#27. By ten o'clock she thought he might soon be ready to talk. He'd threatened, blustered, even tried to sweet-talk her. Then the bribery had begun. He'd let her live if she let him out immediately. He'd give her three horses, two sheep, and a cow. He'd give her a pouch of coin, three horses, two sheep, not just a cow but a milking cow, and set her up anywhere in England, if she would just leave his castle and not bother him again for the rest of his life. The only offer/threat that had perked her momentary interest was when he'd shouted that he was going to "toop her 'til her bonny legs fell off."
She should be so lucky. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Biddlecombe England quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#28. Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Biddlecombe England quotes by Ellis Hobbs
#29. On the New England Patriots losing the Super Bowl after going 18-0: We set high expectations, now we go down as 18-1, and that is one big zit. It is one big blemish. We choked. #Quote by Ellis Hobbs
Biddlecombe England quotes by Hal Borland
#30. For anyone who lives in the oak-and-maple area of New England, there is a perennial temptation to plunge into a purple sea of adjectives about October. #Quote by Hal Borland
Biddlecombe England quotes by Bobby Robson
#31. Don't count your eggs until the chicken's laid them. #Quote by Bobby Robson
Biddlecombe England quotes by Alex Garland
#32. Escape through travel works. Almost from the moment I boarded my flight, life in England became meaningless. Seat-belt signs lit up, problems switched off. Broken armrests took precedence over broken hearts. By the time the plane was airborne I'd forgotten England even existed. #Quote by Alex Garland
Biddlecombe England quotes by Lake Bell
#33. I had had a huge background in the nuance of the accent because I went to drama school in England for four years. #Quote by Lake Bell
Biddlecombe England quotes by Sadie Jones
#34. In England, rain was thin and cold, and made you hunch up inside your coat, walking home from the bus stop. In Jamaica, it was wide and thick and invited you to step into it, and see how wet you could get, and be thrilled that it was warmer than the sea and warmer than your skin; it was abandon. #Quote by Sadie Jones
Biddlecombe England quotes by Bill Bryson
#35. We don't know if he ever left England. We don't know who his principal companions were or how he amused himself. His sexuality is an irreconcilable mystery. On only a handful of days in his life can we say with absolute certainty where he was. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Biddlecombe England quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#36. England, an old and exhausted island, must one day be contented, like other parents, to be strong only in her children. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Biddlecombe England quotes by Adrian J. Desmond
#37. It is 1839. England is tumbling towards anarchy, with countrywide unrest and riots. The gutter presses are fizzing, fire-bombs flying. The shout on the streets is for revolution. Red evolutionists - visionaries who see life marching inexorably upward, powered from below - denounce the props of an old static society: priestly privilege, wage exploitation, and the workhouses. A million socialists are castigating marriage, capitalism, and the fat, corrupt Established Church. Radical Christians join them, hymn-singing Dissenters who condemn the 'fornicating' Church as a 'harlot,' in bed with the State.

Even science must be purged: for the gutter atheists, material atoms are all that exist, and like the 'social atoms' - people - they are self-organizing. Spirits and souls are a delusion, part of the gentry's cruel deceit to subjugate working people. The science of life - biology - lies ruined, prostituted, turned into a Creationist citadel by the clergy. Britain now stands teetering on the brink of collapse - or so it seems to the gentry, who close ranks to protect their privileges.

At this moment, how could an ambitious thirty-year-old gentleman open a secret notebook and, with a devil-may-care sweep, suggest that headless hermaphrodite molluscs were the ancestors of mankind? A squire's son, moreover, Cambridge-trained and once destined for the cloth. A man whose whole family hated the 'fierce & licentious' radical hooligans.

The gentleman wa #Quote by Adrian J. Desmond
Biddlecombe England quotes by Terri Windling
#38. Since fantasy isn't about technology, the accelleration has no impact at all. But it's changed the lives of fantasy writers and editors. I get to live in England and work for a New York publisher! #Quote by Terri Windling
