Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#1. People can't anticipate how much they'll miss the natural world until they are deprived of it. I have read about submarine crewmen who haunt the sonar room, listening to whale songs and colonies of snapping shrimp. Submarine captains dispense 'periscope liberty'- a chance to gaze at clouds and birds and coastlines and remind themselves that the natural world still exists. I once met a man who told me that after landing in Christchurch, New Zealand, after a winter at the South Pole research station, he and his companions spent a couple days just wandering around staring in awe at flowers and trees. At one point, one of them spotted a woman pushing a stroller. 'A baby!' he shouted, and they all rushed across the street to see. The woman turned the stroller and ran. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#2. It leaned forward, elbows on its knees, all amusement vanishing from its features, leaving its chiseled visage quietly regal, dignified. "I give you my word, Gabrielle O'Callaghan," it said softly. "I will protect you."
"Right. The word of the blackest fairy, the legendary liar, the great deceiver," she mocked. How dare it offer its word like it might actually mean something?
A muscle leapt in its jaw. "That is not all I have been, Gabrielle. I have been, and am, many things."
"Oh, of course, silly me, I left out consummate seducer and ravager of innocence. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Highlander Roach quotes by Emily Tilton
#3. If we wed, Milady, you will belong to me. Your rank will be my rank, and your station will be this croft. I hold that a husband must have his way with his wife in his bed and in his house, and that if she refuses him his way, he must chastise her until she is ready to please him. You will card, and you will spin, and you will cook what I bring in to you, and when I call you to my bed, you will come, and I will have my way. #Quote by Emily Tilton
Highlander Roach quotes by Max Roach
#4. The people who really got me off were dealing with the musical potential of the Instrument. #Quote by Max Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#5. The traditional gross anatomy lab represented a sort of sink-or-swim mentality about dealing with death. To cope with what was being asked of them, medical students had to find ways to desensitize themselves. They quickly learned to objectify cadavers, to think of the dead as structures and tissues, and not a former human being. Humor--at the cadaver's expense--was tolerated, condoned even. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#6. Dr. Grime carries a Tide stain pen. He does not use his own spit. Art conservators do. "We make cotton swabs on bamboo sticks and moisten the swab in our mouths," says Andrea Chevalier, senior paintings conservator with the Intermuseum Conservation Association. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Josephine Tey
#7. Wee Archie was wielding a shepherd's crook that, as Tommy remarked later, no shepherd would be found dead with, and he was wearing a kilt that no Highlander would dream of being found alive in. #Quote by Josephine Tey
Highlander Roach quotes by Max Roach
#8. In your lifetime, if you can come up with one original idea, you have accomplished a great deal. #Quote by Max Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#9. Everybody is going to die, so people are enthralled by the possibility that they don't have to completely die, that there is something that comes afterward. It's like if you're going to France for the summer, you're going to read up on it. Everyone just wants to know where they're going, or if they're going anywhere. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#10. ... he was doing a breath hydrogen test. If you know the amount of hydrogen someone is exhaling orally, it's a simple matter to extrapolate the amount they're exhaling rectally. This is because a fixed percentage of hydrogen produced in the colon is absorbed into the blood and, and when it reaches the lungs, exhaled. The breath hydrogen test has given flatus researchers a simple, consistent measure of gas production that does not require the subject to fart into a balloon. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Stephen S. Roach
#11. The lack of monetary discipline has become a hallmark of unfettered globalization. Central banks have failed to provide a stable underpinning to world financial markets and to an increasingly asset-dependent global economy. #Quote by Stephen S. Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#12. I like the term "decedent." It's as though the man weren't dead, but merely involved in some sort of protracted legal dispute. For evident reasons, mortuary science is awash with euphemisms. "Don't say stiff, corpse, cadaver," scolds The Principles and Practice of Embalming. "Say decedent, remains or Mr. Blank. Don't say 'keep.' Say 'maintain preservation.' ... "Wrinkles are "acquired facial markings." Decomposed brain that filters down through a damaged skull and bubbles out the nose is "frothy purge. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Elle Kennedy
#13. Did you know that when the baby starts moving that it's called the quickening?" Hope says.

I snicker. "So she's going to burst out of my stomach with a sword declaring there can be only one?"

"Possibly. Women have died in childbirth, right? The baby is essentially a parasite. It lives off your nutrients, saps your energy." She taps the bottom of a hanger against her lip. "So yeah, I think the Highlander motto could fit."

Carin and I look at her in horror. "Hopeless, you can shut up any time now," Carin orders.

"I was just saying, from a medical standpoint, it's a possible theory. Not here, but maybe in other less developed nations." She reaches over and pats my belly. "Don't worry. You're safe. You should've gotten more maternity clothes," she says, moving on to another topic while I'm still digesting that my baby is a parasite. #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#14. Follow your instincts. Do the kind of writing you love to do and do best. 'Stiff' was an oddball book - I mean, a funny book about cadavers? - and I worried that it would be too unconventional. In the end, that's what has made it a success, I think. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#15. When Drustan reached the bottom step, she flung herself into his arms.
He swung her up into his embrace and kissed her hungrily. By the time he'd finished, she was gasping for air and laughing.
"My turn?" Dageus teased. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Highlander Roach quotes by Jennifer Ashley
#16. Ye have to be bold, lad. We're told that ladies want cringing politeness from a gentleman, but what they really want is a bit of forwardness, even carnality. It's exciting for them. #Quote by Jennifer Ashley
Highlander Roach quotes by Monica McCarty
#17. The Laird of Coll was undoubtedly a hard man. He didn't smile often, but when he did, it was as if the sun broke through the clouds. And he was smiling right now as she considered his question, knowing very well that she was enjoying herself. #Quote by Monica McCarty
Highlander Roach quotes by Madeline Martin
#18. It doesna matter the direction necessity forces ye to take in life, it matters which way ye go when ye have a choice. #Quote by Madeline Martin
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#19. Borman's dumping urine. Urine [in] approximately one minute." Two lines further along, we see Lovell saying, "What a sight to behold! #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#20. The heyday of spiritualism--with its seances and spirit communications zinging through the ether--coincided with the dawn of the electric age. The generation that so readily embraced spiritualism was the same generation that had been asked to accept such seeming witchery as electricity, telegraphy, radio waves, and telephonic communications--disembodied voices mysteriously travelling through space and emerging from a "receiver" hundreds of miles distant #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Jay Roach
#21. I think we'll all keep pushing each other, which is a great thing. #Quote by Jay Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Ray Brown
#22. I went up to his [Hank Jones'] house and there were four guys there: Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, and Max Roach. Not a bad place to be. Scared shitless, but a nice place to be on my second day in New York. #Quote by Ray Brown
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#23. You do not dress to please yourself; you dress to please others. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#24. The terms "idiot" and "lunatic" were acceptable diagnostic terms in England up until 1959. "Imbecile" and "feeble-minded person" were, likewise, listed as official categories in the 1913 Mental Deficiency Act. England has always lagged a bit behind in discarding outdated terms for the disadvantaged. When I was there in 1980, it was still possible to shop for used clothing at the local Spastic Shop. That is, compared to the United States, where it takes, oh, about twenty-five minutes for a diagnostic euphemism to become a conversational faux pas. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#25. I didn't really realize that writing ... would be fun and people would pay you to do it. Being an astronaut is a glory profession, and so is writing, in a way. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by L.H. Cosway
#26. Trash first. Then supplies.
Stepping forward, I kicked a pile of takeout containers to one side, wanting to clear a path to the cabinets so I could look for latex gloves. But then I stopped, stiffening, an odd scratching sound coming from the pile I'd just nudged with my foot.
Turning back to it, I crouched on the ground and lifted a greasy paper at the top of the mess. And that's when I saw it.
A cockroach.
In Ireland.
A giant behemoth of a bug, the likes I'd only ever seen on nature programs about prehistoric insects.
Okay, perhaps I was overexaggerating its size. Perhaps not. Honestly, I didn't get a chance to dwell on the matter, because the roach-shaped locust of Satan hopped onto my hand.
I screamed.
Obviously.
Jumping back and swatting at my hand, I screamed again. But evil incarnate had somehow crawled up and into the sleeve of my shirt. The sensation of its tiny, hairy legs skittering along my arm had me screaming a third time and I whipped off my shirt, tossing it to the other side of the room as though it was on fire.
"What the hell is going on?"
I spun toward the door, finding Ronan Fitzpatrick and Bryan Leech hovering at the entrance, their eyes darting around the room as though they were searching for a perpetrator. Meanwhile, I was frantically brushing my hands over my arms and torso. I felt the echo of that spawn of the devil's touch all over my body.
"Cockroach!" I screeched. "Do you see it? Is it st #Quote by L.H. Cosway
Highlander Roach quotes by Jennifer LaBrecque
#27. Aye. And I can do without a viper-tongued wench.""Wench? Wench? Lass is one thing, but did you just call me a wench? I'll have you know I'm a doctor. No one calls me a wench. I passed my boards with flying colors. I could take you apart and put you back together with my eyes closed. #Quote by Jennifer LaBrecque
Highlander Roach quotes by Maeve Greyson
#28. Yer true future, the future waiting to set your soul on fire, can only be found in the past. #Quote by Maeve Greyson
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#29. Meteorite hunting is not for wimps. The best places to look are also the coldest and windiest. You need very old ice, and you need wind, lots of it, strong and unrelenting. Antarctica fits the bill. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Joseph Roach
#30. Modern anxiety is expressed in the longing for what most people fear, even as modern grief is expressed in the unconsummated mourning for what they never really had. #Quote by Joseph Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Dana Snyder
#31. The Highlander was a documentary, and events happened in real time. #Quote by Dana Snyder
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#32. Back in the 1980s when everyone looked a bit off, my friend Tim and his brothers had some publicity shots taken of their band. Eventually they sold the rights to a stock photo agency. Years later, one of the images turned up on a greeting card. The inside said, Greetings from the Dork Club. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Peter Watts
#33. I've told you before, Daniel: roach isn't an insult. We're the ones still standing after the mammals build their nukes, we're the ones with the stripped-down OS's so damned simple they work under almost any circumstances. We're the goddamned Kalashnikovs of thinking meat. #Quote by Peter Watts
Highlander Roach quotes by Victoria Roberts
#34. He shrugged. "I am nae like any otherman. I am a Highlander. #Quote by Victoria Roberts
Highlander Roach quotes by Kerrigan Byrne
#35. The lass was no damsel.
He'd prepared himself for a hard sell, one that might require a few extra knee-weakening smiles, perhaps so much as a seduction, but he'd never in a million years expected the disaster that landed his arms.
The disaster named Alison Ross. #Quote by Kerrigan Byrne
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#36. To keep your he-man jaw muscles from smashing your precious teeth, the only set you have, the body evolved an automated braking system faster and more sophisticated than anything on a Lexus. The jaw knows its own strength. The faster and more recklessly you close your mouth, the less force the muscles are willing to apply. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Juliette Miller
#37. You're too sacred," he continued, and his voice was husked with emotion. "You're the one. My sunlit angel. My Roses. Mine. #Quote by Juliette Miller
Highlander Roach quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#38. Daily her tactics grew more sly and underhanded. Last night the audacious wench had picked the lock to his
chamber! Because he'd had the foresight to barricade the door with a heavy armoire, she'd then gone to his door in
the corridor and picked that lock. He'd been forced to escape out the window. Halfway down he'd slipped, crashed the last fifteen feet to the ground, and landed in a prickly bush. Since he'd not had time to don his trews, his
manly parts had taken the brunt of his abrupt entry into the bush, putting him in a foul mood indeed.
The wench sought to unman him before his long-anticipated wedding night. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Highlander Roach quotes by Hal Roach
#39. You know it is summer in Ireland when the rain gets warmer. #Quote by Hal Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#40. I'm taller than my father, and taller than two of the stones at Ban Drochaid."
"I meant in feet," she clarified. Speaking of the mundane gave her a measure of calm.
He eyed his boots a moment and appeared to be doing some rapid calculations. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#41. The M16 has a scope with a small red arrow in the center of the sight. You align the arrow with what or (jeez) whom you wish to shoot and squeeze the trigger. Both "squeeze" and "pull" are exaggerations of the motion applied to this trigger. It's a trivial, tiny movement, the twitch of a dreaming child. So quick and so effortless is it that it's hard for me to associate it with any but the most inconsequential of acts. Flipping a page. Typing an M. Scratching an itch. Ending a life wants a little more muscle. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#42. He'll always make time to talk to you if you call, but it becomes quickly clear in the course of the conversation that spare time is something Zugibe has very little of. He'll be halfway through an explanation of the formula used to determine the pull of the body on each of Christ's hands when his voice will wander away from the telephone for a minute and then he'll come back and say, Excuse me. A nine year old body. Father beat her to death. Where were we? #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Melanie Roach
#43. I appreciate my time in the gym. #Quote by Melanie Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#44. There is a photograph of zugibe and one of his volunteers in the aforementioned sindon article. zugibe is dressed in a knee-length white lab coat and is shown adjusting one of the vital sign leads affixed to the man's chest. the cross reaches almost to the ceiling, towering over zugibe and his bank of medical monitors. the volunteer is naked except for a pair of gym shorts and a hearty mustache. he wears the unconcerned, mildly zoned-out expression of a person waiting at a bus stop. neither man appears to have been self-conscious about being photographed this way. i think that when you get yourself down deep into a project like this, you lose sight of how odd you must appear to the rest of the world. #Quote by Mary Roach
Highlander Roach quotes by Mary Roach
#45. You do not question an author who appears on the title page as T.V.N. Persaud, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., F.R.C.Path. (Lond.), F.F.Path. (R.C.P.I.), F.A.C.O.G. #Quote by Mary Roach
