Blayney Norfolk quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#1. But I really wanted to find it for you. And when it looked in the end like it wasn't going to turn up, I just said to myself, one day I'll go to Norfolk and I'll find it there for her.'
'The lost corner of England,' I said. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Rick Wakeman
#2. Sparks is a sporting charity that puts on golf tournaments for sick children, and my animal charities include Oldham Cats and Feline Care, a big cat charity close to me in Norfolk. I'm also a Freemason and the money they raise for charity is phenomenal. #Quote by Rick Wakeman
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke Of Norfolk
#3. A rigorous doctrine of imputation is not only limiting but ends up doing a disservice to the nature of grace and justification. It makes the transactions of the gospel basically juridical. In the Roman view, justification and sanctification are a seamless fabric. It is more than a question of God simply seeing us through a legal scrim of Christ's righteousness. Righteousness actually begins to transform us. #Quote by Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke Of Norfolk
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#4. The Hell's Angels are very definitely a lower-class phenomenon, but their backgrounds are not necessarily poverty-stricken. Despite some grim moments, their parents seem to have had credit. Most of the outlaws are the sons of people who came to California either just before or during World War II. Many have lost contact with their families, and I have never met an Angel who claimed to have a hometown in any sense that people who use that term might understand it. Terry the Tramp, for instance, is "from" Detroit, Norfolk, Long Island, Los Angeles, Fresno and Sacramento. As a child, he lived all over the country, not in poverty but in total mobility. Like most of the others, he has no roots. He relates entirely to the present, the moment, the action. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Stephen Fry
#5. You either get Norfolk, with its wild roughness and uncultivated oddities, or you don't. It's not all soft and lovely. It doesn't ask to be loved. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Charles Dickens
#6. Mr. Bazzard's father, being a Norfolk farmer, would have furiously laid about him with a flail, a pitch-fork, and every agricultural implement available for assaulting purposes, on the slightest hint of his son's having written a play. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Dan Jones
#7. Then a far more grotesque and insulting marriage was arranged between the twenty-year-old John Woodville and Katherine Neville, Warwick's aunt and the dowager duchess of Norfolk. Katherine was not only a four-time widow but also about sixty-five years old. #Quote by Dan Jones
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Martin Shaw
#8. I don't live in London - I'm based in Norfolk and have a place in Scotland. #Quote by Martin Shaw
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Christine M Knight
#9. There was music in the chorus of
the Norfolk pines and in the low rhythmic sounding of the incoming
tide as it reclaimed the rocky coastline not far from where she stood.
There really is no place like home, she thought. #Quote by Christine M Knight
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#10. Crisis. It was a time of sustained anxiety for anybody who read a newspaper or listened to the news on the radio, and that included his mother, Mrs. Florence Woodhouse, who was anxious at the best of times and even more so at the worst. What was the point of continuing the human race when nuclear self-immolation seemed to be such a real and imminent possibility? That was the question that occurred to Florence as she was admitted to the delivery ward of a small country hospital in Norfolk. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Alexander McQueen
#11. My friend George and I were walking on the beach in Norfolk, and there were thousands of [razor-clam] shells. They were so beautiful, I thought I had to do something with them. So, we decided to make [a dress] out of them ... The shells had outlived their usefulness on the beach, so we put them to another use on a dress. Then Erin [O'Conner] came out and trashed the dress, so their usefulness was over once again. Kind of like fashion, really. #Quote by Alexander McQueen
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Jeremy Northam
#12. The space and light up there in Norfolk is wonderfully peaceful. I find myself doing funny things like gardening, and cooking, which I rarely do in London. #Quote by Jeremy Northam
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Stephen Furst
#13. When you left this one theater in Norfolk, the actors had to walk through the lobby to get out to the street. People would see you and say nice things, tell you that you were good. So, pretty soon I'm pretending to forget things backstage, going through the lobby a couple of times. #Quote by Stephen Furst
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#14. One also, in our milieu, simply didn't meet enough Americans to form an opinion. And when one did - this was in the days of crew-cuts and short-legged pants - they, too, often really did sport crew-cuts and trousers that mysteriously ended several inches short of the instep. Why was that? It obviously wasn't poverty. A colleague of my father's had a daughter who got herself married and found that an American friend she had met on holiday had offered to pay the whole cost of the nuptial feast. I forget the name of this paladin, but he had a crew-cut and amputated trouser-bottoms and a cigar stub and he came from a place called Yonkers, which seemed to me a ridiculous name to give to a suburb. (I, who had survived Crapstone… ) Anyway, once again one received a Henry Jamesian impression of brash generosity without overmuch refinement. There was a boy at my boarding school called Warren Powers Laird Myers, the son of an officer stationed at one of the many U.S. Air Force bases in Cambridgeshire. Trousers at The Leys School were uniform and regulation, but he still managed to show a bit of shin and to buzz-cut his hair. 'I am not a Yankee,' he informed me (he was from Norfolk, Virginia). 'I am a CON-federate.' From what I was then gleaning of the news from Dixie, this was unpromising. In our ranks we also had Jamie Auchincloss, a sprig of the Kennedy-Bouvier family that was then occupying the White House. His trousers managed to avoid covering his ankles also, though the fact that #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Ian Cawsey
#15. I once visited an RSPCA hospital in Norfolk. I spoke to the vets working there, and asked them how many times they had had to treat a fox that had been brought in with a shooting injury. The answer from a vet who had worked there for many years was, Not once. When I asked him why, he said,You can take it from me that when the fox is shot in the countryside by somebody trained, it is dead. #Quote by Ian Cawsey
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke Of Norfolk
#16. As a Fundamentalist I had discovered while I was in college that it is possible to dismiss the entire Church as having gone off the rails by about AD 95. That is, we, with our open Bibles, knew better than did old Ignatius or Clement, who had been taught by the very apostles themselves, just what the Church is and what it should look like. #Quote by Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke Of Norfolk
Blayney Norfolk quotes by William Cobbett
#17. The Norfolk people are quick and smart in their motions and their speaking. Very neat and trim in all their farming concerns and very skilful. Their land is good, their roads are level, and the bottom of their soil is dry, to be sure; and these are great advantages; but they are diligent and make the most of everything. #Quote by William Cobbett
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Simon Norfolk
#18. I don't feel like I'm taking pictures, I feel like I'm just gathering them in. They're all out there. I know where they'll be; I just have to get out of bed early enough to bring them home. Like lost kittens. #Quote by Simon Norfolk
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Elly Griffiths
#19. Nelson is glad to see a handler and her dog coming towards him. The recognises the woman as Jan Adams, famous in Norfolk for having won several medals for bravery. Her dog, a beautiful long-haired German Shepherd is a bit of a celebrity too. What was his name again?
"Barney" says Jan in answer to his question. "What's going on?"
Nelson explains about the attack. Barney looks at him, head on one side, as if her too might be about to ask a question. #Quote by Elly Griffiths
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Jane Austen
#20. The less said the better. #Quote by Jane Austen
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Fennel Hudson
#21. Pride of place in my wardrobe is an Edwardian-style Norfolk Jacket in Derby Tweed. It is silk-lined with leather-clad buttons and has a smell that reminds me of wet moss and fallen leaves. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Jack London
#22. Ketch all alone with a black crew from Malaita. And Romance lured and beckoned before Joan's eyes when she learned he was Christian Young, a Norfolk Islander, but a direct descendant of John Young, one of the original Bounty mutineers. The blended Tahitian and English blood showed in his soft #Quote by Jack London
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Simon Norfolk
#23. [My] pictures are about memory and forgetfulness. The evidence is dissolving. Bones crumble; human ash returns to soil; teeth, sandals, hair, bullets, axes disperse into atoms and molecules. Footprints in the snow will be erased by the next storm. The evidence of evil, like the evidence of good, obeys the universal laws of entropy. Heat cools, matter disintegrates, memories fade. If we let them. #Quote by Simon Norfolk
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Kazuo Ishiguro
#24. You see, because [Norfolk is] stuck out here on the east, on this hump jutting into the sea, it's not on the way to anywhere. People going north and south, they bypass it altogether. For that reason, it's a peaceful corner of England, rather nice. But it's also something of a lost corner.'
Someone claimed after the lesson that Miss Emily had said Norfolk was England's 'lost corner' because that was were all the lost property found in the country ended up.
Ruth said one evening, looking out at the sunset, that 'when we lost something precious, and we'd looked and looked and still couldn't find it, then we didn't have to be completely heartbroken. We still had that last bit of comfort, thinking one day, when we were grown up, and we were free to travel the country, we could always go and find it again in Norfolk. #Quote by Kazuo Ishiguro
Blayney Norfolk quotes by William Henry Hudson
#25. There are few places in England where you can get so much wildness and desolation of sea and sandhills, wood, green marsh and grey saltings as at Wells in Norfolk. #Quote by William Henry Hudson
Blayney Norfolk quotes by John Betjeman
#26. Norfolk would not be Norfolk without a church tower on the horizon or round a corner up a lane. We cannot spare a single Norfolk church. When a church has been pulled down the country seems empty or is like a necklace with a jewel missing. #Quote by John Betjeman
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Lawrence Norfolk
#27. They drank from a spring which filled an ancient stone trough behind the ruin. Beyond it lay overgrown beds and plants John had never set eyes on before: tall resinous fronds, prickly shrubs, long grey-green leaves hot to the tongue. Nestling among them he found the root whose scent drifted among the trees like a ghost, sweet and tarry. He knelt and pressed it to his nose.
'That was called silphium.' His mother stood behind him. 'It grew in Saturnus's first garden.'
She showed him the most ancient trees in the orchards, their gnarled trunks cloaked in grey lichen. Palm trees had grown there too once, she claimed. Now even their stumps had gone.
Each day, John left the hearth to forage in the wreckage of Belicca's gardens. His nose guided him through the woods. Beyond the chestnut avenue, the wild skirrets, alexanders and broom grew in drifts. John chased after rabbits or climbed trees in search of birds' eggs. He returned with mallow seeds or chestnuts that they pounded into meal then mixed with water and baked on sticks. The unseasonal orchards yielded tiny red and gold-streaked apples, hard green pears and sour yellow cherries. #Quote by Lawrence Norfolk
Blayney Norfolk quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#28. When the great trumpet of equality was blown, almost immediately afterwards was made one of the greatest blunders in the history of mankind. For all this pride and vivacity, all these towering symbols and flamboyant colours, should have been extended to mankind. The tobacconist should have had a crest, and the cheesemonger a war-cry. The grocer who sold margarine as butter should have felt that there was a stain on the escutcheon of the Higginses. Instead of doing this, the democrats made the appalling mistake--a mistake at the root of the whole modern malady--of decreasing the human magnificence of the past instead of increasing it. They did not say, as they should have done, to the common citizen, 'You are as good as the Duke of Norfolk,' but used that meaner democratic formula, 'The Duke of Norfolk is no better than you are.' For #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Bill Bryson
#29. Norfolk specializes in odd pronunciations. Hautbois is hobbiss, Wymondham is windum, Costessey is cozzy, Postwick is pozzik. People often ask why that is. I'm not sure, but I think it is just something that happens when you sleep with close relatives. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Horatio Nelson
#30. I am a Norfolk man and Glory in being so. #Quote by Horatio Nelson
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Saffron Aldridge
#31. I love going to the cinema, listening to music, yoga and long walks along Holkham beach in Norfolk. #Quote by Saffron Aldridge
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Honor Blackman
#32. I'm very fond of Norfolk. My husband came from there and the kids love it. Devon is beautiful, too. #Quote by Honor Blackman
Blayney Norfolk quotes by James Dyson
#33. I grew up running miles of the Norfolk coastline. I'd think nothing of a six-mile run before breakfast. I still run, though not as far and not before muesli. #Quote by James Dyson
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Harry Mathews
#34. I was stationed in Norfolk, Virginia, for a while, about which the less said the better, and then I was in the Mediterranean, about which the more said the better. #Quote by Harry Mathews
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Paul Nurse
#35. My parents were born in Norfolk and spent their early years working in the big houses of that rural English county, my mother as a cook and my father as a handyman and chauffeur. #Quote by Paul Nurse
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#36. If she is still there in the morning – if she has not run into the lee of Norfolk Island – and if there is no extraordinary change in the weather, I shall have to heave to. To stop,' he added, for a person who could call a cutter a ship after so many years at sea might need even simpler terms explained. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Amanda Donohoe
#37. I loved living in Hollywood - and the weather there was just fantastic - but there is something about rural England, and especially Suffolk and Norfolk, that pulls at my heartstrings. #Quote by Amanda Donohoe
Blayney Norfolk quotes by Stephen Furst
#38. I remember I made $22 a week doing dinner theater in Norfolk, Virginia. Back then, in the '70s, that was pretty good for a teenager, for a part-time job. #Quote by Stephen Furst
