Grave Robber quotes by James Kahn
#1. Doctor Jones, we're all vulnerable to vicious rumors. I seem to remember that in Honduras you were accused of being a grave robber rather than an archaeologist. Indy: Well, the newspapers greatly exaggerated the incident. #Quote by James Kahn
Grave Robber quotes by Jedediah Berry
#2. The coded message is a lifeless thing, mummified and entombed. To the would-be cryptologist we must offer the same advice we would give the grave-robber, the spelunker, and the sorcerer of legend: beware what you dig up; it is yours. #Quote by Jedediah Berry
Grave Robber quotes by Daniel Kraus
#3. Such a shovel, it seemed a waste not to use it. #Quote by Daniel Kraus
Grave Robber quotes by Anonymous
#4. Aimee says the themes are simple: Goodbye individuality, goodbye uniqueness. The uniform, soulless future is coming and the seeds have already been planted. She's read or watched about a billion similar stories. That's what people fear, she says, because they think it's like death and that death is the ultimate robber of identity. "Do you think that's what death's really like?" I ask. "No," she says. "I think, when we die, we don't lose our identity, we gain a much, much bigger one. As big as the universe. #Quote by Anonymous
Grave Robber quotes by Mick Jackson
#5. In the evenings they would sometimes sit out in the garden and listen to the steady hum of the bees' industry and breathe in the honey in full flow. The Boys learnt how the different sounds from the hive denoted different moods, different activities, and that each worker, far from being a mere gatherer of nectar or builder of comb, carried out a whole host of duties at various points in her short life―a nursemaid to the larvae, a sentry to keep out robber bees, a carpet sweeper to keep the hive tidy, a punka-wallah when it got too hot. #Quote by Mick Jackson
Grave Robber quotes by Marcus Garvey
#6. was the crying voice from the grave that said, 'Garvey, we have suffered for 250 years for your day and for your time; we expect something from you at this hour.'"16 #Quote by Marcus Garvey
Grave Robber quotes by Shaw Neilson
#7. Beauty imposes reverence in the Spring, Grave as the urge within the honeybuds, It wounds us as we sing. Beauty is joy that stays not overlong. Clad in the magic of sincerities, It rides up in a song. Beauty imposes chastenings on the heart, Grave as the birds in last solemnities Assembling to depart. #Quote by Shaw Neilson
Grave Robber quotes by Beryl Dov
#8. Red Cross: The greatest tragedy is indifference...
...including indifference to our CEO's $600K salary
which would make Clara Barton turn in her grave. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Grave Robber quotes by Arthur  Miller
#9. I don't say he's a great man. Willie Loman never made a lot of money. His name was never in the paper. He's not the finest character that ever lived. But he's a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid. He's not to be allowed to fall in his grave like an old dog. Attention, attention must finally be paid to such a person. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Grave Robber quotes by Philip Roth
#10. My father was taking me as seriously as the Ringolds were, but not with Ira's political fearlessness, with Murray's literary ingenuity, above all, with their seeming absence of concern for my decorum, for whether I would or would not be a good boy. The Ringolds were the one-two punch promising to initiate me into the big show, into my beginning to understand what it takes to be a man on the larger scale. The Ringolds compelled me to respond at a level of rigor that felt appropriate to who I now was. Be a good boy wasn't the issue with them. The sole issue was my convictions. But then, their responsibility wasn't a father's, which is to steer his son away from the pitfalls. The father has to worry about the pitfalls in a way the teacher doesn't. He has to worry about his son's conduct, he has to worry about socializing his little Tom Paine. But once little Tom Paine has been let into the company of men and the father is still educating him as a boy, the father is finished. Sure, he's worrying about the pitfalls - if he wasn't, it would be wrong. But he's finished anyway. Little Tom Paine has no choice but to write him off, to betray the father and go boldly forth to step straight into life's very first pit. And then, all on his own - providing real unity to his existence - to step from pit to pit for the rest of his days, until the grave, which, if it has nothing else to recommend it, is at least the last pit into which one can fall. #Quote by Philip Roth
Grave Robber quotes by John Banville
#11. The white May blossom swooned slowly into the open mouth of the grave. #Quote by John Banville
Grave Robber quotes by Cassandra Clare
#12. The long lonely cry of a suffering boy he could not help chilled Magnus through to the bone, like cold water seeping through to find a grave. Sometimes he thought they were all forsaken, every soul on this earth.

Even the Nephilim. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Grave Robber quotes by Joseph Hansen
#13. Los Angeles didn't get like this often. He hated it when it did. And this time it was holding on. It had been brutal at the cemetery three weeks ago. His father's nine widows had looked ready to drop. The savage light had leached the color from the flowers. The savage heat had got at the mound of earth from the grave even under its staring green blanket of fake grass. He'd stayed to watch the workmen fill the grave. The earth was dry. Even the sharp walls of the grave were dry. What the hell was he doing remembering that? #Quote by Joseph Hansen
Grave Robber quotes by Dinah Maria Murlock Craik
#14. This is practically the language used to fallen women, and chiefly by their own sex: "God may forgive you, but we never can!" a declaration which, however common, in spirit if not in substance, is, when one comes to analyse it, unparalleled in its arrogance of blasphemy. That for a single offence, however grave, a whole life should be blasted, is a doctrine repugnant even to Nature's own dealings in the visible world. #Quote by Dinah Maria Murlock Craik
Grave Robber quotes by Donald Jeffries
#15. On November 26, 1963, President Johnson had signed National Security
Action Memorandum, 273, which was in diametrical opposition to JFK's
NSAM 263. While Kennedy's body was still warm in his grave when LBJ's
signature changed future US direction in Vietnam, NSAM 273 had, incredibly
enough, actually been drafted on November 21, 1963, while Kennedy was
still alive. The memo was written by National Security Advisor McGeorge
Bundy (more on him later). Why would such a memo have been created,
when it contradicted JFK's policy and certainly would not have been signed
by him? LBJ let it be known early on that he wanted to "win" in Vietnam,
and had no intention of following Kennedy's plans to withdraw completely
by 1965. #Quote by Donald Jeffries
Grave Robber quotes by Peggy Guggenheim
#16. It is always assumed that Venice is the ideal place for a honeymoon. This is a grave error. To live in Venice or even to visit it means that you fall in love with the city itself. There is nothing left over in your heart for anyone else. #Quote by Peggy Guggenheim
Grave Robber quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#17. It doesn't occur to me at this moment to say more; another time, perhaps tomorrow, I may have more to say, but always the same thing and about the same, for only gypsies, robber gangs and swindlers follow the adage that where a person has once been he is never to go again. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Grave Robber quotes by Guy Endore
#18. There is no more foul or relentless enemy of man in the occult world than this dead-alive creature spewed up from the grave. #Quote by Guy Endore
Grave Robber quotes by Michael Muhammad Knight
#19. Islam's all about knowledge, right? Muslims know everything. We seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave. We seek knowledge even if it be in China, Yusef, EVEN IN CHINA! And we've reduced our religion to fuckin' academics. The guy who knows Islam best is the one who really hits the books hard, learns his shit. Muslims brag about having no priests but we're getting molested by scholars. Yusef Ali, books are not Allah. Even a book by or from Allah is not Allah. #Quote by Michael Muhammad Knight
Grave Robber quotes by Vikram Seth
#20. Let the smoky Käll sustain himself on Mars, and Yuko lay rue on Beethoven's grave. Let the lord of the manor of Rochdale clap his coffin into a canoe and disport himself on the waters. Let Zsa-Zsa sleep on a pillow of haddock in Maria's cello case. Let Mrs Wessen live to see her thousandth moon. Let Ysobel unknit her forehead. Let not poor Virginie weep. Let all and no things come to pass, for how will I pass these days? #Quote by Vikram Seth
Grave Robber quotes by Sylvia Townsend Warner
#21. During the last few years of her life Mrs. Willowes grew continually more skilled in evading responsibilities, and her death seemed but the final perfected expression of this skill. It was as if she had said, yawning a delicate cat's yawn, "I think I will go to my grave now," and had left the room. #Quote by Sylvia Townsend Warner
Grave Robber quotes by Anthony Liccione
#22. Life is short enough, there is nothing worth here to take your life, and those things we do gain can never be taken to our grave. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Grave Robber quotes by Lara Adrian
#23. Lock and load, everyone," Lucan said, casting a grave look at the rest of them. "It's gonna be a long, bloody night. #Quote by Lara Adrian
Grave Robber quotes by Aaron W. Matthews
#24. We've always done it this way" is invalid when that way hasn't led to more life, greater growth, or maximum efficiency. Take that how you, personally, church, or family. Complacency is too easy to breed, and already has one foot in the grave. #Quote by Aaron W. Matthews
Grave Robber quotes by Liane Moriarty
#25. She saw her mother appearing at her bedroom door. "Daddy and I want to talk to you about something." It would not happen to Liam the way it had happened to her. Over her dead body. It was the one thing she'd always known she could and would spare him from. Her beautiful, grave-faced little boy would not feel the loss and confusion she'd felt that awful summer all those years ago. He would not pack a little overnight bag every second Friday. He would not have to check a calendar on the refrigerator to see where he was sleeping each weekend. He would not learn to think before he spoke whenever one parent asked a seemingly innocuous question about the other. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Grave Robber quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#26. Everything that occurs in the temple is uplifting and ennobling. It speaks of life here and life beyond the grave. It speaks of the importance of the individual as a child of God. It speaks of the importance of the family and the eternity of the marriage relationship. #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Grave Robber quotes by Natsume Sōseki
#27. On my arrival at Tokyo, I
rushed into her house swinging my valise, before going to a
hotel, with "Hello, Kiyo, I'm back!"
"How good of you to return so soon!" she cried and hot tears
streamed down her cheeks. I was overjoyed, and declared that
I would not go to the country any more but would start housekeeping
with Kiyo in Tokyo.
Some time afterward, some one helped me to a job as assistant
engineer at the tram car office. The salary was 25 yen a
month, and the house rent six. Although the house had not a
magnificent front entrance, Kiyo seemed quite satisfied, but, I
am sorry to say, she was a victim of pneumonia and died in
February this year. On the day preceding her death, she asked
me to bedside, and said, "Please, Master Darling, if Kiyo is
dead, bury me in the temple yard of Master Darling. I will be
glad to wait in the grave for my Master Darling."
So Kiyo's grave is in the Yogen temple at Kobinata. #Quote by Natsume Sōseki
Grave Robber quotes by Charles Dickens
#28. I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Grave Robber quotes by Mike Royer
#29. It was months later when I was sitting at the board in my studio and my wife would stick her head in and say, "What if you did Pooh and ... oh, we don't do that anymore." I do have my soapbox and will go to my grave being a Disney company man. #Quote by Mike Royer
Grave Robber quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#30. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battle-field, and patriot grave, to every living heart and hearth-stone, all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
as quoted in THE RIVER OF WINGED DREAMS #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Grave Robber quotes by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
#31. Perhaps the only misplaced curiosity is that which persists in trying to find out here, on this side of death, what lies beyond the grave. #Quote by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Grave Robber quotes by Edward Hoagland
#32. It's incongruous that the older we get, the more likely we are to turn in the direction of religion. Less vivid and intense ourselves, closer to the grave, we begin to conceive of ourselves as immortal. #Quote by Edward Hoagland
Grave Robber quotes by Thomas Hardy
#33. Almost for the first time in his life, Troy, as he stood by this dismantled grave, wished himself another man. It is seldom that a person with much animal spirit does not feel that the fact of his life being his own is the one qualification which singles it out as a more hopeful life than that of others who may actually resemble him in every particular. Troy had felt, in his transient way, hundreds of times, that he could not envy other people their condition, because the possession of that condition would have necessitated a different personality, when he desired no other than his own. He had not minded the peculiarities of his birth, the vicissitudes of his life, the meteor-like uncertainty of all that related to him, because these appertained to the hero of his story, without whom there would have been no story at all for him; and it seemed to be only in the nature of things that matters would right themselves at some proper date and wind up well. This very morning the illusion completed its disappearance, and, as it were, all of a sudden, Troy hated himself. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Grave Robber quotes by Seneca.
#34. But when you are looking on anyone as a friend when you do not trust him as you trust yourself, you are making a grave mistake, and have failed to grasp sufficiently the full force of true friendship. #Quote by Seneca.
Grave Robber quotes by Mark Twain
#35. It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, Well, that is California all over. #Quote by Mark Twain
Grave Robber quotes by Edmund Waller
#36. Consent in virtue knit your hearts so fast,
That still the knot, in spite of death, does last;
For as your tears, and sorrow-wounded soul,
Prove well that on your part this bond is whole,
So all we know of what they do above,
Is that they happy are, and that they love.
Let dark oblivion, and the hollow grave,
Content themselves our frailer thoughts to have;
Well-chosen love is never taught to die,
But with our nobler part invades the sky. #Quote by Edmund Waller
Grave Robber quotes by Mike Carey
#37. So what I'm getting at is this. Okay, maybe it's cold in the grave. Maybe you come out of the light and you think, Fuck your mother, this is bad. This is worse than anything I would have guessed. But the trick is to clench your teeth, get a running start and dive.
When I hit that other country, from whose bourne no traveller back-pedals, I'm going to be moving fast. I'm gambling that the first ten seconds or so will be the worst. #Quote by Mike Carey
Grave Robber quotes by Lord Byron
#38. Tyranny Is far the worst of treasons. Dost thou deem None rebels except subjects? The prince who Neglects or violates his trust is more A brigand than the robber-chief. #Quote by Lord Byron
Grave Robber quotes by Sabaa Tahir
#39. I don't look at the wound. I don't need to. I watched the Commandant as she carved it into me, a thick-lined, precise K stretching from my collarbone to the skin over my heart. She branded me. Marked me as her property. It's a scar I'll carry to the grave. #Quote by Sabaa Tahir
