Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Paul Auster
#5. Each time he took a walk, he felt as though he were leaving himself behind, and by giving himself up to the movement of the streets, by reducing himself to a seeing eye, he was able to escape the obligation to think, and this, more than anything else, brought him a measure of peace, a salutary emptiness within ... By wandering aimlessly, all places became equal and it no longer mattered where he was. On his best walks he was able to feel that he was nowhere. And this, finally was all he ever asked of things: to be nowhere. #Quote by Paul Auster
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Neil Oliver
#6. After I graduated from the University of Glasgow, I was a self-employed archaeologist going from dig to dig around Scotland, and it was not well-paid. I was an excavator, not a lecturer as well, so paying rent on a flat was tricky. In the end I decided to retrain as a journalist as I couldn't see a future in it. #Quote by Neil Oliver
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Robert Carlyle
#7. The thing I miss the most about Scotland is the football. #Quote by Robert Carlyle
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Ruth Davidson
#8. I believe in Scotland's place within the United Kingdom today as much as ever. #Quote by Ruth Davidson
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Mrs. Oliphant
#9. The village lay in the hollow, and climbed, with very prosaic houses, the other side. Village architecture does not flourish in Scotland. The blue slates and the grey stone are sworn foes to the picturesque; and though I do not, for my own part, dislike the interior of an old-fashioned pewed and galleried church, with its little family settlements on all sides, the square box outside, with its bit of a spire like a handle to lift it by, is not an improvement to the landscape. Still, a cluster of houses on differing elevations - with scraps of garden coming in between, a hedgerow with clothes laid out to dry, the opening of a street with its rural sociability, the women at their doors, the slow waggon lumbering along - gives a centre to the landscape. It was cheerful to look at, and convenient in a hundred ways. ("The Open Door") #Quote by Mrs. Oliphant
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#10. And so he began haltingly to speak - in Gaelic, as it was the only tongue that didn't seem to require any effort. He understood that he was to speak of what filled his heart, and so began with Scotland - and Culloden. Of grief. Of loss. Of fear. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Sarah Hall
#11. Apex predators are good for an environment in terms of biodiversity and trophic cascade - we have very few. But realistically, only a few areas could sustain free-roaming wolves in Britain, mostly in Scotland. #Quote by Sarah Hall
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Janet Montgomery
#12. Witches were burned and killed in Scotland and England for centuries before what happened in Salem. #Quote by Janet Montgomery
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Robyn Schneider
#13. The pause in conversation when you're about to introduce someone but you've forgotten their name. There's a word for it. In Scotland, it's called a tartle. #Quote by Robyn Schneider
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by K.V. Wilson
#14. I groaned as me limbs grew to immense proportions an' me neck stretched. Moss-coloured scales emerged upon me slick skin. Me snout elongated and me teeth sharpened to the size o' small dirks. #Quote by K.V. Wilson
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Henry Ian Cusick
#15. I'd imagine if there were more Scottish people making Scottish movies about Scotland, it would not only be educational, but it would instill a sense of pride. #Quote by Henry Ian Cusick
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#16. The guiding hand at one's pony; the voice at one's porridge bowl; the splendid athlete one watched from one's books in the cold tower window, while outside in the sunshine he rode at the ring, threw his spears, matched his sword with the master-at-arms. The brother who had cared for him, a grown man in illness, and defended him against calumny, and who at length, heartbroken at his defection, had turned his back on him a year ago in Scotland. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by N. Gemini Sasson
#17. Of Scotland, I cherished both the sprawling days of summer, when dusk and dawn were one, and the witching darkness of winter, when I would warm my hands by the hearth while song and company wrapped themselves around me like a cloak against the cold. I loved the height and breadth of the mountains and the mysterious depth of the lochs. #Quote by N. Gemini Sasson
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Nicola Sturgeon

#20. Christianity's growth, especially in the developing world, has been explosive. There are now six times more Anglicans in Nigeria alone than there are in all of the United States. There are more Presbyterians in Ghana than in the United States and Scotland combined. Korea has gone from 1 percent to 40 percent Christian in a hundred years, and experts believe the same thing is going to happen in China. If there are half a billion Chinese Christians fifty years from now, that will change the course of human history.6 #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Hugh MacDiarmid
#21. Scotland small? Our multiform, infinite Scotland SMALL? #Quote by Hugh MacDiarmid
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Ian Rankin
#22. I'm interested in Scotland now and then, how it's changed. I want to get the reader to think about that by thinking about something from the past. How has society changed, how has policing changed, have we changed philosophically, psychologically, culturally, spiritually? #Quote by Ian Rankin
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Hugh MacDiarmid
#23. It is time we in Scotland put England in its proper place and instead of our leaning on England and taking inspiration from her, we should lean and turn to Europe, for it is there our future prosperity lies. #Quote by Hugh MacDiarmid
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Stephen Richards
#24. It was so funny, I witnessed this with my own eyes, Andy and the screw were like two WWF wrestlers, we were locked behind the grill gates cheering Andy on, the chants started. The chant was to the tune of Jingle Bells and went like this: Stab a screw, stab a screw, stab a screw today, all that fun it is to stab a screw on New Year's Day, but it was only 29 December. #Quote by Stephen Richards
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Neve McIntosh

He seized, he captured.
He dominated.
And she loved every second of it. #Quote by Donna Grant

Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#28. The war between England and Scotland was in its eighth year and there had been no raid for ten days: it had seemed possible to get married in peace. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Douglas Murray
#29. Nevertheless, the idea that Europeans have simply stopped having enough children and must as a result ensure that the next generation is comprised of immigrants is a disastrous fallacy for several reasons. The first is because of the mistaken assumption that a country's population should always remain the same or indeed continue rising. The nation states of Europe include some of the most densely populated countries on the planet. It is not at all obvious that the quality of life in these countries will improve if the population continues growing. What is more, when migrants arrive in these countries they move to the big cities, not to the remaining sparsely populated areas. So although among European states Britain, along with Belgium and the Netherlands, is one of the most densely populated countries, England taken on its own would be the second most densely populated country in Europe. Migrants tend not to head to the Highlands of Scotland or the wilds of Dartmoor. And so a constantly increasing population causes population problems in areas that are already suffering housing supply problems and where infrastructure like public transport struggles to keep up with swiftly expanding populations. #Quote by Douglas Murray
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Charles Kennedy
#30. As I spread my wings in politics, I discovered many Thatcher voters down south who were the same kind of people who loathed her in Scotland. They were puzzled by the Scots' antipathy, given the Falklands war and the strong militaristic history of the Highlands and elsewhere. #Quote by Charles Kennedy
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Nick Davies
#31. Something very worrying has been going on at Scotland Yard. We now know that in dealing with the phone-hacking affair at the 'News of the World,' they cut short their original inquiry; suppressed evidence; misled the public and the press; concealed information and broke the law. Why? #Quote by Nick Davies
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Craig Ferguson
#32. The nation of Iran is threatening to sue the makers of the movie Argo. They say the movie was an unrealistic portrayal of their country. You can't do that! That would be like Scotland suing over the movie Shrek. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Johann Lamont
#33. We won't enshrine the Tories' policies in Scotland. We won't run away from the Tories but then let them run our economy. We will face up to the Tories, and we will beat them. #Quote by Johann Lamont
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Keith O'Brien
#34. Clearly, if it is sensible to hold a referendum on independence, it is crucial that we have one on marriage. It is the only way the country can move forward on this issue. Let all those who have a view on this subject place their trust in the Scottish people and let Scotland decide. #Quote by Keith O'Brien
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Rick Riordan
#35. I just love family meetings. Very cozy, with the Christmas garlands round the fireplace and a nice pot of tea and a detective from Scotland Yard ready to arrest you. #Quote by Rick Riordan

Dreghorn Scotland quotes by George Osborne
#38. No ifs, no buts - we will not share the pound if Scotland separates from the U.K. #Quote by George Osborne
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Fanny Burney
#39. You have sensible women here [in England] but then, they are very devils
censorious, uncharitable, sarcastic
the women in Scotland have twice
thrice their freedom, with all their virtue
and are very conversable and agreeable
their educations are more finished. #Quote by Fanny Burney
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#40. If you have a Tory government at Westminster that takes us out of Europe against our will, there may be people in Scotland who think, 'You know what, we might be better off independent.' #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Laura Donnelly
#41. 'Outlander' is filmed mostly around Glasgow and the central belt of Scotland, so it's lovely for me because I get to go up and spend time in the place that I lived for three years. I've got a bunch of friends in the cast because a lot of them studied at the same college as I did, and I get to see my family, most of whom now live in Scotland. #Quote by Laura Donnelly
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by James Cosmo
#42. Although I don't live there anymore, Scotland is a great place for the people coming over to visit and to tour around the Highlands, because it is a very magical place. #Quote by James Cosmo
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Cyndi Tefft
#43. He said that if I ever hurt you, he'd find me and kill me. I told him that if I ever hurt you, I'd want him to. - Aiden MacRae #Quote by Cyndi Tefft
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Kerrigan Byrne
#44. The rough pad of his thumb dragged across the split on her lip as light as a whisper. She felt his caress in her bones.
And elsewhere. #Quote by Kerrigan Byrne
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Dudley Nichols
#45. My religion is no garment to be put on and off with the weather. You had better know that, all of you. I shall worship as I please and hope for all men to worship as they please in Scotland. #Quote by Dudley Nichols
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by John Niven
#46. When I was a boy during Thatcher, you watched elections and wept in disbelief as the whole country turned blue, Scotland turned red, and we still got the Tories. #Quote by John Niven
Dreghorn Scotland quotes by Lewis Spence
#47. At Bealltainn, or May Day, every effort was made to scare away the fairies, who were particularly dreaded at this season. In the West Highlands charms were used to avert their influence. In the Isle of Man the gorse was set alight to keep them at a distance. In some parts of Ireland the house was sprinkled with holy water to ward off fairy influence. These are only a mere handful out of the large number of references available, but they seem to me to reveal an effort to avoid the attentions of discredited deities on occasions of festival once sacred to them. The gods duly return at the appointed season, but instead of being received with adoration, they are rebuffed by the descendants of their former worshippers, who have embraced a faith which regards them as demons.

In like manner the fairies in Ireland were chased away from the midsummer bonfires by casting fire at them. At the first approach of summer, the fairy folk of Scotland were wont to hold a "Rade," or ceremonial ride on horseback, when they were liable to tread down the growing grain. #Quote by Lewis Spence
