Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Anonymous
#1. It would be tedious to attempt a phonetic reproduction of Mr. Sage's utterances. Enough to say that they were genteel to a fantastic degree. "Aye thot Aye heeard somewon teeking may neem in veen," may give some idea of his rendering of the above sentence. Let it go at that. #Quote by Anonymous
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Adam Haslett
#2. If the history of the American sentence were a John Ford movie, its second act would conclude with the young Ernest Hemingway walking into a saloon, finding an etiolated Henry James slumped at the bar in a haze of indecision, and shooting him dead. #Quote by Adam Haslett
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Katie MacAlister
#3. A knife!" I yelled, still brandishing my pillow. "Jim, I command you to get me a gelding knife. If this guy
wants to be a stallion - "
He dissolved in a flurry of white smoke even before I could finish the sentence.
Ha! Victorious again!"
Yeah," Jim drawled while I remade the bed and fluffed up my pillows. "Aisling, two; sexy, naked men
who just want to give her the pleasure of a lifetime with no commitment, zero. #Quote by Katie MacAlister
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Bruce Feiler

Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Madeleine M. Kunin
#5. When a man interrupts a woman in mid-sentence, it reveals much about him. First, it shows he hasn't been listening to what she is saying, and secondly, it indicates that he doesn't want to listen to what she will say. Her views are not important. #Quote by Madeleine M. Kunin
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Lidia Yuknavitch
#6. I thought of Shakespearean chiasmus. A chiasmus in language is a crisscross structure. A doubling back sentence. A doubling of meaning. My favorite is "love's fire heats water, water cools not love." As a motif, a chiasmus is a world within a world where transformation is possible. In the green world events and actions lose their origins. Like in dreams. Time loses itself. The impossible happens as if it were ordinary. First meanings are undone and remade by second meanings. #Quote by Lidia Yuknavitch
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Sophie Barthes
#7. Flaubert's famous sentence, "Madame Bovary, c'est moi" ("Madame Bovary, she is me"), in reality means, " Madame Bovary, c'est nous" ("Madame Bovary, she is us"), in our modern incapacity to live a "good-enough" life. #Quote by Sophie Barthes
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Alan W. Watts
#8. We must abandon completely the notion of blaming the past for any kind of situation we're in and reverse our thinking and see that the past always flows back form the present. That now is the creative point of life. So you see its like the idea of forgiving somebody, you change the meaning of the past by doing that ... Also watch the flow of music. The melody as its expressed is changed by notes that come later. Just as the meaning of a sentence ... you wait till later to find out what the sentence means ... The present is always changing the past. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Matt Taibbi
#9. The law isn't supposed to be about unspoken excuses and behind-the-scenes calculations. The beauty of the system is that judges and juries are allowed to consider only what is seen and heard in open court. In between the white lines of this arena, it's all supposed to make sense. This is where we all get to be equal again. In the defendant's chair, rich and poor ride the same roller coaster, face the same music. Case has to match case. Sentence should match sentence.
But they don't match anymore. They probably never did, and probably it was never even close. But at least there was the illusion of it. What's happened now, in this new era of settlements and non prosecutions is that the state has formally surrendered to its own excuses. It has decided just to punt from the start and take the money which doesn't become really wrong until it turns around the next day and decides to double down on the less-defended, flooring it all the way to trial against a welfare mom or some joker who sold a brick of dope in the projects. Repeat the same process a few million times, and that's how the jails in American get the population they have. Even if every single person they sent to jail were guilty, the system would still be an epic fail - it's the jurisprudential version of Pravda, where the facts int he paper might have all been true on any given day, but the lie was all in what was not said.

That's what nobody gets, that the two approaches to justice may individually ma #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by David D. Burns
#10. When we're rational about rule-breaking we set a limit. You don't get 30 years in prison for a traffic ticket. But sometimes you sentence yourself to months or years of emotional pain over minor offenses. #Quote by David D. Burns
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Garrison Wynn
#11. We don't have any real justice in the legal system, you never see a headline that reads, Millionaire Gets Death Sentence. #Quote by Garrison Wynn
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Alan Moore
#12. As I see it, a successful story of any kind should be almost like hypnosis: You fascinate the reader with your first sentence, draw them in further with your second sentence and have them in a mild trance by the third. Then, being careful not to wake them, you carry them away up the back alley of your narrative and when they are hopelessly lost within the story, having surrendered themselves to it, you do them terrible violence with a softball bag and then lead them whimpering to the exit on the last page. Believe me, they'll thank you for it. #Quote by Alan Moore
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Dick Enberg
#13. On the air, it's as if somebody draws a heavy drape to block any bias. I don't even feel it inside. It's the same curtain that keeps you from swearing. I've known broadcasters who can't get one sentence out in normal conversation without being profane, and yet, they can go on the air and talk for three hours and never slip once. #Quote by Dick Enberg
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#14. The whole world can be explained in just one sentence. 'What is being discharged (visarjan) is old and what is being charged (sarjan) is new'. If someone is discharging bad behavior but at the same time, has learned from the 'Gnani Purush' [the enlightened one]; he would be charging a higher life form! #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Lang Leav
#15. It was pure bliss and absolute torture at the same time. I was in daze, as if my brain had suddenly packed up and gone on vacation. I could barely string words together in a sentence. #Quote by Lang Leav
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Jess Walter
#16. Who isn't crazy sometimes? Who hasn't driven around a block hoping a certain person will come out; who hasn't haunted a certain coffee shop, or stared obsessively at an old picture; who hasn't toiled over every word in a letter, taken four hours to write a two-sentence email, watched the phone praying it will ring; who doesn't lay awake at night sick with the image of her sleeping with someone else? #Quote by Jess Walter
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Stephen Reed
#17. A sentence in a book may be the thing that changes your life. #Quote by Stephen Reed
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Sean Beaudoin Wise Young Fool
#18. Live in a place where people are revered for being clever, funny, and creative, instead of rich annoying, and on television. Where they inspire. Where they aspire. Where they dream of the perfect sentence, or the perfect drawing, or the perfect chord. Where singing a line that sums up your generation with a run of simple, cutting words is more valuable than a million Likes or Follows or dumbass Retweets. #Quote by Sean Beaudoin Wise Young Fool
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Joseph Joubert
#19. Tormented by the cursed ambition always to put a whole book in a page, a whole page in a sentence, and this sentence in a word. I am speaking of myself. #Quote by Joseph Joubert
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Tom Stoppard
#20. To wrap up the idea of 'Parade's End' in a sentence or two, I would say it's a love story in which we see a man with two women, and we know what's attractive about them. And we know why and what they feel about him. #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#21. This story about good food begins in a quick-stop convenience market. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Toni Morrison
#22. Originally, Sula opened with 'Except for World War II, nothing interfered with National Suicide Day.' With some encouragement I recognized that sentence as a false beginning." Falseness, in this case, meant abrupt. There was no lobby, as it were, where the reader could be situated before being introduced to the goings-on of the characters. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Akira Kurosawa
#23. The censors were so far gone as to find the following sentence obscene: 'The factory gate waited for the student workers, thrown open in longing.' What can I say? This obscenity verdict was handed down by a censor in response to my script for my 1944 film about a girls' volunteer corps, Ichiban utsukushiku (The Most Beautiful). I could not fathom what it was he found to be obscene about this sentence. Probably none of you can either. But for the mentally disturbed censor this sentence was unquestionably obscene. He explained that the word 'gate' very vividly suggested to him the vagina! For these people suffering from sexual manias, anything and everything made them feel carnal desire. Because they were obscene themselves, everything seen through their obscene eyes naturally became obscene. Nothing more or less than a case of sexual pathology. #Quote by Akira Kurosawa
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by David      Bell
#24. Taut, intelligent, and intense suspense that is deeply human." - Mark Greaney, New York Times Bestselling Author of Gunmetal Gray

"Exciting and well-layered....David Bell is a master storyteller with a sure hand at crafting characters you feel for and stories you relish." - Allen Eskens, USA Today Bestselling Author of The Life We Bury

"A tense and twisty suspense novel about the dark secrets that lie buried within a community and a father who can save his daughter only by uncovering them.

"Spellbinding and pulse-raising, BRING HER HOME hooked me from the first sentence and surprised me until the final pages. Sh #Quote by David Bell
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Paul Auster
#25. I have always been a plodder, a person who anguishes and struggles over each sentence, and even on my best days I do no more than inch along, crawling on my belly like a man lost in the desert. The smallest word is surrounded by acres of silence for me, and even after I manage to get that word down on the page, it seems to sit there like a mirage, a speck of doubt glimmering in the sand. #Quote by Paul Auster
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Amy Engel
#26. He glances back at me. "But there's hardly ever any activity outside the fence these days, at least close by. Only the people we put out, and they rarely try to get back into Westfall. I guess they figure it's better to take your chances out there than be guaranteed a death sentence in here."
"Either option sounds pretty horrible to me."
Bishop shrugs. "I don't know, sometimes I think we should just tear down the fence. Towns didn't have fences around them before the war and everything was fine. I think it was supposed to keep us safe, but instead it's made us scared. #Quote by Amy Engel
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Jonathan Lethem
#27. Punctuation! We knew it was holy. Every sentence we cherished was sturdy and Biblical in its form, carved somehow by hand-dragged implement or slapped onto sheets by an inky key. For sentences were sculptural, were we the only ones who understood? Sentences were bodies, too, as horny as the flesh-envelopes we wore around the house all day. Erotically enjambed in our loft bed, Clea patrolled my utterances for subject, verb, predicate, as a chef in a five-star kitchen would minister a recipe, insuring that a soufflé or sourdough would rise. A good brave sentence ("I can hardly bear your heel at my nape without roaring") might jolly Clea to instant climax. We'd rise from the bed giggling, clutching for glasses of cold water that sat in pools of their own sweat on bedside tables. The sentences had liberated our higher orgasms, nothing to sneeze at. Similarly, we were also sure that sentences of the right quality could end this hideous endless war, if only certain standards were adopted at the higher levels. They never would be. All the media trumpeted the Administration's lousy grammar. #Quote by Jonathan Lethem
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#28. He is the same soul. You are simply seeing another aspect of him. There is a secret core in everyone that not even Gabriel can know by trying to know. Listen now. The intellect derives from the senses, which are limited, and come from the body. The intellect therefore is also limited, and it can never truly know reality, which is infinite and eternal. Khalid wanted to know reality with his intellect, and he can't. Now he knows that, and is downcast. Intellect has no real mettle, you see, and at the first threat, into a hole it scuttles. But love is divine. It comes from the realm of the infinite, and is entrusted to the heart as a gift from God. Love has no calculation in it. 'God loves you' is the only possible sentence! So it's love you must follow to the heart of your father-in-law. Love is the pearl of an oyster living in the ocean, and intellect lives on the shore and cannot swim. Bring up the oyster, sew the pearl onto your sleeve for all to see. It will bring courage to the intellect. Love is the king that must rescue his coward slave. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Pietro Citati
#29. If we want know the meaning of existence, we must open a book: over there, in the darkest chapter, there's a sentence written especially for us. #Quote by Pietro Citati
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Daniel Gardner
#30. Put all these numbers together and what do they add up to? In a sentence: We are the healthiest, wealthiest, and longest-lived people in history. And we are increasingly afraid. This is one of the great paradoxes of our time. #Quote by Daniel Gardner
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by James Joyce
#31. He lived at a little distance from his body, regarding his own acts with doubtful side-glances. He had an odd autobiographical habit which led him to compose in his mind from time to time a short sentence about himself containing a subject in the third person and a verb in the past tense. #Quote by James Joyce
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Marcel Proust
#32. He went farther; agonised by the reflection, at the moment when it passed by him, so near and yet so infinitely remote, that, while it was addressed to their ears, it knew them not, he would regret, almost, that it had a meaning of its own, an intrinsic and unalterable beauty, foreign to themselves, just as in the jewels given to us, or even in the letters written to us by a woman with whom we are in love, we find fault with the 'water' of a stone, or with the words of a sentence because they are not fashioned exclusively from the spirit of a fleeting intimacy and of a 'lass unaparalleled. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Evocatively In A Sentence quotes by Michelle Bryan
#33. Yeah, well don't get used to it," I mutter back. "I ain't no damn Hooters waitress." I catch his grin out of the corner of my eye. "You? A Hooters girl? I don't think you have big enough - " "Choose your next words carefully, Whitman," I cut him off mid-sentence, my eyes narrowed. "They could mean the world of difference on who keeps you company in bed tonight. Me or the palm sisters." "Feet. #Quote by Michelle Bryan
