Duellist Fencing quotes by Georgette Heyer
#1. This embittered thought brought to her mind the several occasions upon which she might, had she been the kind of female his lordship no doubt admired, have kindled his ardour by a display of sensibility, or even of heroism ... To have thrown herself between the foils, when she had surprised the Earl fencing with Martin, would certainly have been spectacular, but that it would have evoked anything but exasperation in the male breast she was quite unable to believe. She thought she need not blame herself for having refrained upon this occasion; but when she recalled her behaviour in the avenue, when the Earl had been thrown from his horse, she knew that nothing could excuse her. Here had been an opportunity for spasms, swoonings, and a display of sensibility, utterly neglected! How could his lordship have been expected to guess that her heart had been beating so hard and so fast that had felt quite sick, when all she had done was to talk to him in a voice drained of all expression? Not even when his lifeless body had been carried into the Castle had she conducted herself like a heroine of romance! Had she fainted at the sight of his blood-soaked raiment? Had she screamed? No! All she had done had been to direct Ulverston to do one thing, Turvey another, Chard to ride for the doctor, while she herself had done what lay within her power to staunch the bleeding. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Duellist Fencing quotes by Henry L. Stimson
#2. We face the delicate question of the diplomatic fencing to be done so as to be sure Japan is put into the wrong and makes the first bad move ... The question was how we should maneuver them [the Japanese] into the position of firing the first shot. #Quote by Henry L. Stimson
Duellist Fencing quotes by Gabriella Poole
#3. As Isabella turned to reach for it, Richard shrugged off his fencing jacket and plastron. Under it, he was wearing only a sleeveless vest that hugged his muscles tightly. Vain devil, thought Cassie, amused. He knew very well he looked darn good in defeat. #Quote by Gabriella Poole
Duellist Fencing quotes by V.E Schwab
#4. Fencing is a game of living chess, a match where reflexes only work in combination with intent, and mind and body must work together at every moment. #Quote by V.E Schwab
Duellist Fencing quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#5. Fencing is more a sport than a martial art. It would be like basing your knowledge of roman phalanx warfare on NFL football. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Duellist Fencing quotes by Ty Simpkins
#6. I belong to an improv group, I play cello, I have these phases - fencing, tae kwon do, baseball, ice hockey, boogie boarding in the summer, snowboarding in the winter. #Quote by Ty Simpkins
Duellist Fencing quotes by Lindsey Vonn
#7. I enjoyed trying everything. I'd never get a chance to try fencing or archery if it wasn't for this. It was really fun experience. #Quote by Lindsey Vonn
Duellist Fencing quotes by William Goldman
#8. May my hands fall from my wrists before I kill an artist like yourself," said the man in black. "I would as soon destroy da Vinci. However" - and here he clubbed Inigo's head with the butt of his sword - "since I can't have you following me either, please understand that I hold you in the highest respect. #Quote by William Goldman
Duellist Fencing quotes by Penelope Douglas

Duellist Fencing quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#12. It's a queer thing is a man's soul. It is the whole of him. Which means it is the unknown him, as well as the known. It seems to me just funny, professors and Benjamins fixing the functions of the soul. Why, the soul of man is a vast forest, and all Benjamin intended was a neat back garden. And we've all got to fit into his kitchen garden scheme of things. Hail Columbia !

The soul of man is a dark forest. The Hercynian Wood that scared the Romans so, and out of which came the white- skinned hordes of the next civilization.

Who knows what will come out of the soul of man? The soul of man is a dark vast forest, with wild life in it. Think of Benjamin fencing it off!

Oh, but Benjamin fenced a little tract that he called the soul of man, and proceeded to get it into cultivation. Providence, forsooth! And they think that bit of barbed wire is going to keep us in pound for ever? More fools they.


Man is a moral animal. All right. I am a moral animal. And I'm going to remain such. I'm not going to be turned into a virtuous little automaton as Benjamin would have me. 'This is good, that is bad. Turn the little handle and let the good tap flow,' saith Benjamin, and all America with him. 'But first of all extirpate those savages who are always turning on the bad tap.'

I am a moral animal. But I am not a moral machine. I don't work with a little set of handles or levers. The Temperance- silence-order- resolution-f #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Duellist Fencing quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#13. But even in such works where the author is ideally unobtrusive, he remains diffused through the book so that his very absence becomes a kind of radiant presence. As the French say, il brille par son absence - "he shines by his absence." In connection with Bleak House we are concerned with one of those authors who are so to speak not supreme deities, diffuse and aloof, but puttering, amiable, sympathetic demigods, who descend into their books under various disguises or send therein various middlemen, representatives, agents, minions, spies, and stooges. [...]

Roughly speaking, there are three types of such representatives. Let us inspect them.

First, the narrator insofar as he speaks in the first person, the capital I of the story, its moving pillar. [...] Second, a type of author's representative, what I call the sifting agent. [...] The third type is the so-called perry, possibly derived from periscope, despite the double r, or perhaps from parry in vague connection with foil as in fencing. But this does not matter much since anyway I invented the term myself many years ago. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Duellist Fencing quotes by Felicia Day
#14. I love crafting. Knitting, decoupage, scrapbooking, any "lady-ish" art form, I'm a fan. For about six months each. Then I shove all the supplies in a closet, alongside the skeletons of long dead New Year's resolutions, like saber fencing, playing the ukulele, and Japanese brush painting. #Quote by Felicia Day
Duellist Fencing quotes by Ben Witherington III
#15. We have seen some gatekeeping or fencing-the-table language already beginning to rear its head in this context. One needed to be baptized to take the meal; one needed to repent to take the meal; one needed a bishop or his subordinate to serve the meal. This was to become especially problematic when the church began to suggest that grace was primarily, if not exclusively, available through the hands of the priest and by means of the sacrament. One wonders what Jesus, dining with sinners and tax collectors and then eating his modified Passover meal with disciples whom he knew were going to deny, desert, and betray him, would say about all this. There needs to be a balance between proper teaching so the sacrament is partaken of in a worthy manner and overly zealous policing of the table or clerical control of it. #Quote by Ben Witherington III
Duellist Fencing quotes by C.S. Lewis
#16. Kids like us don't often have the chance of meeting a great warrior like you. Would you have a little fencing match with me? It would be frightfully decent. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Duellist Fencing quotes by Mariel Zagunis
#17. I love waking up every single day and going to fencing practice in the morning and just working hard and setting those big goals one after another, and achieving them, and wanting to do it again and again and again. There's no reason for me to stop. #Quote by Mariel Zagunis
Duellist Fencing quotes by Stanley Goldyn
#18. The blades sang like the strokes of a hammer on a blacksmith's anvil echoing in the empty churchyard. #Quote by Stanley Goldyn
Duellist Fencing quotes by Kieran Bew
#19. I did quite a lot of fencing when I was a kid, I was a swimmer, and I played a lot of basketball. I was a fencer for Great Britain, but I only did that because I watched Robin Hood, Star Wars, Highlander and The Three Musketeers, and I wanted to emulate Richard Harris and the great British actors that I grew up watching. #Quote by Kieran Bew
Duellist Fencing quotes by Erik Larson
#20. But Burnham also created an office culture that anticipated that of businesses that would not appear for another century. He installed a gym. During lunch hour employees played handball. Burnham gave fencing lessons. Root played impromptu recitals on a rented piano. "The office was full of a rush of work," Starrett said, "but the spirit of the place was delightfully free and easy and human in comparison with other offices I had worked in." Burnham #Quote by Erik Larson
Duellist Fencing quotes by Ashley Bell
#21. I've been very physical my whole life. I've done a lot of ballet, fencing and karate, and everything. #Quote by Ashley Bell
Duellist Fencing quotes by Anahad O'Connor
#22. Do right-handed people live longer than lefties?

Then again, there are some things about lefties that can't be explained so easily. For whatever reason, whether it's the pressures of living in a world designed for righties, or all the talk of having shorter life spans, lefties have higher rates of depression, drug abuse, allergies, and schizophrenia. But lefties also have an advantage in sports like fencing, tennis and baseball, not to mention greater academic success and higher IQs. Five of America's last eleven presidents were lefties, even though they make up only 10 percent of the American population." (I believe Obama is a leftie as well, making that 6 of the last 12 presidents). #Quote by Anahad O'Connor
Duellist Fencing quotes by Moliere
#23. The secret to fencing consists in two things: to give and to not receive. #Quote by Moliere
Duellist Fencing quotes by Miyamoto Musashi
#24. It is difficult to realize the true Way just through sword-fencing. Know the smallest things and the biggest things, the shallowest things and the deepest things. #Quote by Miyamoto Musashi
Duellist Fencing quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#25. Tolstoy is the Tolstoy of the Zulus,' wrote Wiley. 'Unless you find a profit in fencing off universal properties of mankind into exclusive tribal ownership. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Duellist Fencing quotes by David Foster Wallace
#26. I don't think he was used to patients who were already aware of what their real problem was. He was also a bit of a pill-pusher. I balked at trying antidepressants, I just couldn't see myself taking pills to try to be less of a fraud. I said that even if they worked, how would I know if it was me or the pills? By that time I already knew I was a fraud. I knew what my problem was, I just couldn't seem to stop. I remember I spent maybe the first twenty times or so in analysis acting all open and candid but in reality sort of fencing with him or leading him around by the nose, basically showing him that I wasn't just another one of those patients who stumbled in with no clue what their real problem was or who were totally out of touch with the truth themselves. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Duellist Fencing quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#27. He took his own saber by the blade and handed it to Alek, pommel first, as if offering it to a victor. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Duellist Fencing quotes by Cary Elwes

Duellist Fencing quotes by Regina Scott
#29. Trust is like a fencing foil; it's not effective unless you extend it. #Quote by Regina Scott
Duellist Fencing quotes by Patricia C. Wrede
#30. The King and Queen did the best they could. They hired the most superior tutors and governesses to teach Cimorene all the things a princess ought to know - dancing, embroidery, drawing, and etiquette. There was a great deal of etiquette, from the proper way to curtsy before a visiting prince to how loudly it was permissible to scream when being carried off by a giant. (...)

Cimorene found it all very dull, but she pressed her lips together and learned it anyway. When she couldn't stand it any longer, she would go down to the castle armory and bully the armsmaster into giving her a fencing lesson. As she got older, she found her regular lessons more and more boring. Consequently, the fencing lessons became more and more frequent.

When she was twelve, her father found out.

"Fencing is not proper behavior for a princess," he told her in the gentle-but-firm tone recommended by the court philosopher.

Cimorene tilted her head to one side. "Why not?"

"It's ... well, it's simply not done."

Cimorene considered. "Aren't I a princess?"

"Yes, of course you are, my dear," said her father with relief. He had been bracing himself for a storm of tears, which was the way his other daughters reacted to reprimands.

"Well, I fence," Cimorene said with the air of one delivering an unshakable argument. "So it is too done by a princess. #Quote by Patricia C. Wrede
Duellist Fencing quotes by Anne Lange
#31. Yeah, impress her with your carpentry skills. Judging by some of the books she reads, she likes big, strong, guys - men who do honest work to build their muscles. She's horny as hell when she comes to bed some nights. I'm thinking you could offer to mend some fencing, finish my deck, or something. Watching you work would get her juices flowing."

"Is this your way of tricking me into doing your yard work?" Connor snickered and raised his beer. "Strange way to go about it, bud. #Quote by Anne Lange
Duellist Fencing quotes by Douglas Preston
#32. guard posts and triple fencing had been bolstered by cutting-edge instrumentation, including laser-beam "lattices #Quote by Douglas Preston
Duellist Fencing quotes by Richard Cohen
#33. As Bill Bryson wrote during the 2000 Olympics in Sydney: 'A lot of people don't like fencing because they don't understand the rules and terminology, but in fact it's quite simple. There are basically four thrusts, known as the cartilage, the chaise lounge, the aubergine, and the fromage anglais, and these in turn can be parried by four defensive feints – the pastiche, the penchant, the demi-tass...e, and the saumon en croute. Scoring is one point for a petit pois and two for a baguette. Points can equally be deducted for a foot fault or pied a terre, or for a type of illegal lunge known as a zut alors. #Quote by Richard Cohen
Duellist Fencing quotes by Kris Holden-Ried
#34. Fencing is a funny sport. Competitive fencing is not really very applicable to the stage world unless you're fighting with a rapier during the Renaissance, you know? #Quote by Kris Holden-Ried
Duellist Fencing quotes by Frigyes Karinthy
#35. You cannot imagine, to give you another example, that you may have, one day, a prime minister (it would go against my modesty to breathe his name) who, one day, after announcing in Parliament, in a cool, impassive voice, that, as the result of a number of carefully thought out diplomatic manoeuvres he has refrained from discussing before (for he is not a man of many words), he has succeeded in annexing Britain as an ordinary colony of Hungary, and that he is taking this opportunity to apprise the House of the fact; - Well, as I say, after explaining this in a cool and impassive tone, ignoring the shouting, jubilant Members who want to carry him round on their shoulders, suddenly he takes up a fencing posture and, right there, on the premier's rostrum, employing a formidable, hitherto unknown jujitsu hold, floors the Australian world wrestling champion whom the British opposition treacherously hid under the rostrum in order to assassinate the greatest European. #Quote by Frigyes Karinthy
Duellist Fencing quotes by Matthew Gray Gubler
#36. I just love entertaining. I will do anything - stand-up comedy, video games, fencing, internet shorts - I just want to keep being lucky enough to entertain people anyway I can. I try never to limit my art to a medium. #Quote by Matthew Gray Gubler
Duellist Fencing quotes by Patricia Briggs
#37. Anger is stupid, and stupidity will kill you more surely than your opponent's blade. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Duellist Fencing quotes by Erinn Smart
#38. My brother is my best friend. Usually, when I'm fencing, I can hear his voice. #Quote by Erinn Smart
Duellist Fencing quotes by Michele Bardsley
#39. His gaze meandered along my chest. "Hey!" I crossed my arms over my breasts.
"Those are…"
"Well, his name isn't tattooed on them, but yeah, currently they are reserved for him."
I peered at him and noted the similarities between him and his sons. "Ruadan, I presume?"
"Got it in one," he said, silver eyes twinkling.
"You scared the shit out of me." One corner of his mouth lifted into a grin. He picked up the parchment and tapped on it.
"So, you're Patrick's soul mate."
"But you read the scroll. Only his sonuachar can do that."
"Let me explain." I paused. "No, there is too much. Let me sum up."
" The Princess Bride!" Ruadan exclaimed in happy surprise. "I love that movie. 'Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!'" He leapt off the bed and made fencing motions.
"Ruadan, we're in a bit of crisis around here."
"Hey! My swords." He practically skipped to the dresser where I had left them when I got ready for my bath. He whirled the half-swords like a master swordsman, which, of course, he was. "My mother really knows how to smith a weapon, doesn't she? Real fairy gold." He stabbed an invisible foe's chest with one and his stomach with the other. "Die, evil one! Die!"
He jumped up and down, the swords held above his head, and did a victory dance.
"You're like a big puppy!" I exclaimed. "A big, dumb puppy. #Quote by Michele Bardsley
Duellist Fencing quotes by Neal Stephenson
#40. The quill swirled and lunged over the page, in a slow but relentless three steps forward, two steps back sort of process and finally came to a full stop in a tiny pool of its own ink. Then, Louis Phelypeaux, First Compte de Pontchartrain, raised the nib, let it hover for an instant, as if gathering his forces, and hurled it backwards along the sentence, tiptoeing over "i's" and slashing through "t's" and "x's" nearly tripping over an umlaut, building speed and confidence while veering through a slalom course of acute and grave accents, pirouetting through cedillas and carving vicious snap-turns through circumflexes. It was like watching the world's greatest fencing master dispatch twenty opponents with a single continuous series of maneuvers. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Duellist Fencing quotes by Jenny Han
#41. Margot says, "Wait, we have to cheers my sister getting into William and Mary!"
My smile feels frozen as everyone clinks their custard cups against mine. Ravi says, "Well done, Lara Jean. Didn't Jon Stewart go there?"
Surprised, I say, "Why yes, yes he did. That's a pretty random fact to know."
"Ravi's specialty is random facts," Margot says, licking her spoon. "Don't get him started on the mating habits of bonobos."
"Two words," Ravi says. Then he looks from Peter to me and whispers, "Penis fencing. #Quote by Jenny Han
Duellist Fencing quotes by Flavio Junqueira
#42. We will show an example of implementing simple fencing using a fencing token. As long as a client holds the most recent token, it can access the resource. #Quote by Flavio Junqueira
Duellist Fencing quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#43. By ring-fencing a time budget for a momentous 'breathing space' in the flurry of our life, we may encounter ourselves and take the time to fill the gaps in the framework of our individuality so as to reconcile the qualities of our personality. ( "What after bowling alone? #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Duellist Fencing quotes by Herman Wouk
#44. Strange, isn't it, that warfare has come down to fencing with complicated toys that only a few seedy scholars can make or understand. #Quote by Herman Wouk
Duellist Fencing quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#45. You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Duellist Fencing quotes by Kelly Gardiner
#46. The fencing masters adjust your pose, your wrist, just as singing masters try to rearrange your throat and tongue, as concert masters order the notes, the cadence. I've had many masters. I hear their voices. I don't need to, anymore, but they still speak to me, through me. Always. #Quote by Kelly Gardiner
Duellist Fencing quotes by Charles Allen
#47. Creativity is the essence of fencing. #Quote by Charles Allen
Duellist Fencing quotes by Henri Cartier-Bresson
#48. Photography is like fencing. You must keep your distance, wait, and then thrust. #Quote by Henri Cartier-Bresson
