Boston Commons quotes by Katherine Paterson
#1. There was one path across Boston Commons that a young man must not ask a young woman to take unless he meant business. Which path was that? she asked Holmes. "Ah," she remembered the elderly doctor saying, "if I were only fifty years younger I would show you. #Quote by Katherine Paterson
Boston Commons quotes by Alfred Denning, Baron Denning

Boston Commons quotes by Kevin Nash
#3. Don't know if Boston was real or lucid dream. When they chanted Diesel, it sure as hell felt real for ME! You make decisions in life, sometimes never getting proof that it was the right decision. The crowd in Boston on Sunday night assured me that I MADE THE RIGHT DECISION. #Quote by Kevin Nash
Boston Commons quotes by George R.R. Martin
#4. I mean to give the smallfolk peace and food and justice. If that will not suffice to win their love, let Mushroom make a progress. Or perhaps we might send a dancing bear. Someone once told me that the commons love nothing half so much as dancing bears. You may call a halt to this feast tonight as well. Send the lords home to their own keeps and give the food to the hungry. Full bellies and dancing bears shall be my policy. - Aegon III #Quote by George R.R. Martin

Boston Commons quotes by Tucker Elliot
#7. Ortiz is now synonymous with walk-off homers. After all, he hit a total of nine game-ending blasts from 2002-07. And that was just in the regular season. It was his blasts in the 2004 postseason that cemented his legacy in Boston. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Boston Commons quotes by Josephine Angelini
#8. Yeah? Well, you and your snooty, all-knowing witches have never been to the moon. My people have, because it was there and it was a good thing to do," Lily said in her best Boston accent. "So bite my scientist-loving ass. #Quote by Josephine Angelini
Boston Commons quotes by Meredith Duran
#9. Who would guess that this woman beside him had routed the Commons? What a secret to keep. A man might live his entire life in greedy contentment, knowing such a secret. Crispin had grown up aware of such possibilities, of marriages in which great men drew their strength and brilliance from the women at their side. But he had thought it a distant myth for himself. #Quote by Meredith Duran
Boston Commons quotes by Kahlen Aymes
#10. Landed in Boston. Thanks for finally being mine. I love you with everything i am. #Quote by Kahlen Aymes
Boston Commons quotes by Dan Ariely
#11. But because human being tend to focus on short-term benefits and our own immediate needs, such tragedies of the commons occur frequently . #Quote by Dan Ariely
Boston Commons quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#12. Ohio is a scale model of the entire country, jammed into 43,000 square miles. Cleveland views itself as the intellectual East (its citizens believe they have a rivalry with Boston and unironically classify the banks of Lake Erie as the North Coast). Cincinnati is the actual South (they fly Confederate flags and eat weird food). Dayton is the Midwest. Toledo is Pittsburgh, before Pittsburgh was nice. Columbus is a low-altitude Denver, minus the New World Order airport. Ohio experiences all possible US weather, sometimes simultaneously. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Boston Commons quotes by The Boston Globe
#13. Robert Kapilow is a born teacher, an enthusiast who can think on his feet, a 110 percent believer in the project at hand ... It's a cheering thought that this kind of missionary enterprise did not pass from this earth with Leonard Bernstein. Robert Kapilow is awfully good at what he does. We need him. #Quote by The Boston Globe
Boston Commons quotes by David Gaider
#14. Rhys was tempted to point out that the golem's heavy footfalls more or less announced their presence already. Even attempting to move quietly, it was a constant litany of thoom thoom thoom. The golem seemed in no mood for such a reminder, however ... if a walking statue could be said to have a "mood." Rhys was reminded of the solemn templar statues in the mage commons, and wondered what they might be like if they suddenly got up and started walking around. Somehow he doubted they would be nearly as sassy. #Quote by David Gaider
Boston Commons quotes by Fred Allen
#15. I have just returned from Boston. It is the only thing to do if you find yourself up there. #Quote by Fred Allen
Boston Commons quotes by John Diefenbaker
#16. I am the first prime minister of this country of neither English nor French origin. So I determined to bring about a Canadian citizenship that knew no hyphenated consideration ... I'm very happy to be able to say that in the House of Commons today in my party we have members of Italian, Dutch, German, Scandinavian, Chinese and Ukrainian origin and they are all Canadians. #Quote by John Diefenbaker
Boston Commons quotes by Amby Burfoot
#17. This wasn't just an attack against the Boston Marathon ... It was an attack against the American public and our democratic use of the streets. We have used our public roadways for annual parades, protest marches, presidential inaugurations, marathons, and all manner of other events. The roads belong to us, and their use represents an important part of our free and democratic tradition. #Quote by Amby Burfoot
Boston Commons quotes by Whit Stillman
#18. Characteristic of the overall difference between Boston and New York, the population at the Acropolis was far less forlorn. Its customers were just those who, for whatever reason, wanted to eat coffee-shop food at very strange hours. #Quote by Whit Stillman
Boston Commons quotes by Brian Clough
#19. There are more hooligans in the House of Commons than at a football match. #Quote by Brian Clough
Boston Commons quotes by Tucker Elliot
#20. [Tony] Pérez stood out because he was a clutch hitter. And like Bench and Morgan and Rose, it was a clutch October hit that immortalized him in baseball's postseason lore. The powerful first baseman hit three home runs against Boston during the 1975 World Series, but none bigger than his blast against Bill Lee. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Boston Commons quotes by Herman Melville
#21. Sweet are the oases in Sahara; charming the isle-groves of August prairies; delectable pure faith amidst a thousand perfidies; but sweeter, still more charming, most delectable, the dreamy Paradise of Bachelors, found in the stony heart of stunning London.
In mild meditation pace the cloisters; take your pleasure, sip your leisure, in the garden waterward; go linger in the ancient library; go worship in the scultured chapel; but little have you seen, just nothing do you know, not the sweet kernel have you tasted, till you dine among the banded Bachelors, and see their convivial eyes and glasses sparkle. Not dine in bustling commons, during term time, in the hall; but tranquilly, by private hint, at a private table; some fine Templar's hospitably invited guest. #Quote by Herman Melville
Boston Commons quotes by Victor W. Von Hagen
#22. Prescott's life was changed from the accepted norm of a proper Bostonian by that crust of bread. While in his junior year at Harvard,the students one day,while eating in the Commons, turned the room into pandemonium by bombarding each other with food;in the midst of it Prescott, who turned at the call of his name, was struck by a crust of bread accurately thrown. It hit him in the open left eye,striking the unprotected pupil;it had the effect usually attending a brain concussion. When he recovered he was made instantly aware that he had lost sight of his left eye. #Quote by Victor W. Von Hagen
Boston Commons quotes by Richard Sennett
#23. The top managers are defensive about these departures; they point to how safe, attractive, and up-to-date the workplace is. Rodney Everts is less defensive but equally perplexed. "When somebody tells me there's no future here, I ask what they want. They don't know; they tell me you shouldn't be stuck in one place." Fortunately, the job market in Boston for low-wage workers is strong at the moment, but there is something puzzling about the sheer impulse to get out. #Quote by Richard Sennett
Boston Commons quotes by George W. Bush
#24. There is a huge trust. I see it all the time when people come up to me and say, 'I don't want you to let me down again.'
- Boston, Mass., Oct. 3, 2000 #Quote by George W. Bush
Boston Commons quotes by Tucker Elliot
#25. Seemingly every year at least one of the league's top sluggers can be found in Boston's lineup - and often times more than one. David Ortiz was second or third in slugging five consecutive seasons from 2003-07. Manny Ramirez was in the top five in slugging six consecutive seasons from 2001-06. Manny and Big Papi were one-two in slugging in 2004, and from 2003-06 Boston's big bats gave the club two of the league's top five sluggers - something no other team in the league could boast. #Quote by Tucker Elliot
Boston Commons quotes by Tom Scholz
#26. No one was more surprised that that first Boston record took off than the record company itself. #Quote by Tom Scholz
Boston Commons quotes by William Sleator
#27. I've always been interested in both writing and music. When I first started getting published, I also worked as rehearsal pianist for the Boston Ballet, touring with them all over the U.S.A. and Europe - I wasn't making enough money from writing to support myself. #Quote by William Sleator
Boston Commons quotes by Thomas Menino
#28. This is a bad day for Boston, but I think if we pull together we'll get through it. #Quote by Thomas Menino
Boston Commons quotes by Alex Rocco
#29. I had to get out of the Boston area, so I flipped a coin and said, 'Heads - Miami, tails - California. I was in my mid-20s and came out here with no training. Acting wasn't even in my mind. #Quote by Alex Rocco
Boston Commons quotes by Stephen Elop
#30. When you went into a Boston Chicken and ordered quarter-chicken, white, with mash and corn, when that was rung up, that would signal all the way along the supply chain the need for more potatoes to be put on a truck a thousand miles away. #Quote by Stephen Elop
Boston Commons quotes by Mitch Albom
#31. He mentioned a dear friend Morrie had, Maurie Stein, who had first sent Morrie's aphorisms to the Boston Globe. They had been together at Brandeis since the early sixties. Now Stein was going deaf. Koppel imagined the two men together one day, one unable to speak, the other unable to hear. What would that be like?
"We will hold hands," Morrie said. "And there'll be a lot of love passing between us. Ted, we've had thirty-five years of friendship. You don't need speech or hearing to feel that. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Boston Commons quotes by Sarah Dessen
#32. I jammed my hand in my jacket pocket, bracing myself fo the next hit, and fel something. Something grainy and samll, sticking to the tips of my fingers: the sand from Commons Park.
Oh Cass, I thought. I miss you so, so much. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Boston Commons quotes by Michael Patrick MacDonald
#33. I remember hating having to cross over the Broadway Bridge again, having to leave the peninsula neighborhood and go back to my apartment in downtown Boston. #Quote by Michael Patrick MacDonald
Boston Commons quotes by Thomas Menino
#34. Let's use the energy of this historic year to propel us toward our shared vision of a greater Boston. #Quote by Thomas Menino
Boston Commons quotes by Ellsworth Kelly
#35. I was taught to draw very well when I was in school at Boston. And I grew to enjoy drawing so much that I never stopped. #Quote by Ellsworth Kelly
Boston Commons quotes by Colin Jost
#36. The religious kids were really religious, the kind who push religion on others in a way that always freaks me out. They are like people who keep telling me, 'You have to see Hamilton!' Honestly, no I don't and the more you keep telling me, the less likely I am to actually see it. Though I have subsequently seen, "Hamilton" and it's excellent. #Quote by Colin Jost
Boston Commons quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#37. He had heard especially promising things about Philadelphia
the lively capital of that young nation. It was said to be a city with a good-enough shipping port, central to the eastern coast of the country, filled with pragmatic Quakers, pharmacists, and hardworking farmers. It was rumored to be a place without haughty aristocrats (unlike Boston), and without pleasure-fearing puritans (unlike Connecticut), and without troublesome self-minted feudal princes (unlike Virginia). The city had been founded on the sound principles of religious tolerance, a free press, and good landscaping, by William Penn
a man who grew tree saplings in bathtubs, and who had imagined his metropolis as a great nursery of both plants and ideas. Everyone was welcome in Philadelphia, absolutely everyone
except, of course, the Jews. Hearing all this, Henry suspected Philadelphia to be a vast landscape of unrealized profits, and he aimed to turn the place to his advantage. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Boston Commons quotes by Michael Lewis
#38. Forty percent of the thirteen hundred members of Yale's graduating class of 1986 applied to one investment bank, First Boston, alone. There was, I think, a sense of safety in the numbers. The larger the number of people involved, the easier it was for them to delude themselves that what they were doing must be smart. The first thing you learn on the trading floor is that when large numbers of people are after the same commodity, be it a stock, a bond, or a job, the commodity quickly becomes overvalued. Unfortunately, at the time, I had never seen a trading floor. The #Quote by Michael Lewis
Boston Commons quotes by David B. Lentz
#39. Tim Finnegan's Wake
by Dr. Thom Dedalus

When God reeled in good auld Tim Finnegan,
And looked into his green Irish peepers,
Said He, "Now, what was I thinkin'?
Poor lad, he ain't one of the keepers."

To hell Tim descended without any fear,
To the devil, whom not much is lost on,
Said he, "I'm sure you'll be comfortable here,
Among all your old friends from South Boston."

Tim's jokes night and day caused Satan to swear,
As migraines crept behind blood red eyelids,
"An eternity with you is just too much to bear.
You're going home to your wife and your nine kids."

So up pops Tim at his wake from his casket.
"It can't be," went a howl from his wife.
When he belched the sea from his own breadbasket,
Said she, "Someone, hand me a knife."

Now Tim's fishing off George's Banks
Catching codfish, haddock and hake.
The happiest folk in town to give thanks,
Is John Hancock for Finnegan's wake.

Finn's now a legend among life underwriters,
In Beantown and all over the States.
In him beats the heart of a fighter.
Sad to hear how they increased his rates.

Finn's tale is best told with a dram of Jameson.
You're entitled to whatever sense you can make.
Just cause you're dead, it don't mean you're gone.
You may take comfort in Finnegan's wake. #Quote by David B. Lentz
Boston Commons quotes by Whitney M. Young
#40. You don't get black power by chanting it. You get it by doing what the other groups have done. The Irish kept quiet. They didn't shout "Irish Power", "Jew Power", [or] "Italian Power". They kept their mouths shut and took over the police department of New York City, and the mayorship of Boston. #Quote by Whitney M. Young
Boston Commons quotes by Bryan Ferry
#41. In New York, you couldn't wish for a nicer audience, or in L.A., Chicago, Boston. But when you get into secondary markets, they don't have a clue. #Quote by Bryan Ferry
Boston Commons quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#42. No man is regular in his attendance at the House of Commons until he is married. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Boston Commons quotes by Linda Gondosch
#43. The "Indians" knew the destruction of the tea had to be finished by midnight--not one minute later. Destroying the tea was against the law. The men were defying King George III of Great Britain. They could be tried for a crime against the government, thrown into jail, and hanged. Why would they risk their lives just to destroy a cargo of tea? #Quote by Linda Gondosch
Boston Commons quotes by Tatiana De Rosnay
#44. I caught a glimpse of my face in the mirror as we glided p. I looked as eroded as the groaning lift. What had happened to the fresh-faced belle from Boston, Mass.? The woman who stared back at me was at the dreaded age between forty-five and fifty, that no-man's land of sag, oncoming wrinkle, and stealthy approach of menopause.
"I hate this elevator, too," I said grimly.
Zoe grinned and pinched my cheek.
"Mom, even Gwyneth Paltrow would look like hell in that mirror."
I had to smile. That was such a Zoe-like remark. #Quote by Tatiana De Rosnay
Boston Commons quotes by Lisa Birnbach
#45. In crew, contempt is important. In Boston, Boston University and Northeastern crew are treated with contempt by the college up the river. Intramural crew is treated with contempt. Nonathletic coxswains (Chinese engineering majors, poets) are treated with contempt. A true coxswain is a diminutive jock, raging against the pint size that made him the butt of so many jokes at Prep school. He runs twenty stadiums a day, his girlfriend is six feet one, and he can scream orders even when he has the flu (which he catches at least three times a winter). #Quote by Lisa Birnbach
