Iliki In English quotes by David Cannadine
#1. For Henry James, class was 'the essentially hierarchial plan of English society' which was 'the great and ever-present fact to the mind of a stranger; there is hardly a detail of life that does not in some degree betray it'. #Quote by David Cannadine
Iliki In English quotes by Christine Feehan
#2. Next time you make love to me, do you think we might go for convention and find a bed?" She sat up gingerly.
Mikhail's arm curved around her in support. "Did I hurt you?"
She laughed softly. "Are you kidding? Though I wouldn't mind a long soak in a hot tub."
He rubbed the top of her head with his chin. "I think we can arrange that, little one." He should have realized the wood floor would not be the most comfortable of spots. "You tend to drive every sane thought from my head." It was an apology as he lifted her into his arms. His long strides took them through the house to the master bathroom.
Raven's eyes warmed, melted, her smile so loving his breath caught in his throat. "You do tend to get a little primitive, Mikhail."
He growled at her, lowered his head to hers slowly, fastened his mouth to hers. There was such a mixture of tenderness and hunger, she ached for him. Very gently he set her on her feet, her small face framed in his hand. "I will never get enough of you, Raven, never. But you need to soak in the tub, and I need to feed."
"Eat." She bent to fill the tub with hot, steamy water. "In English you use the word eat. I'm not the greatest cook, but I could put something together for you."
His white teeth gleamed like a predator's as he lit candles for her. "You are not here as my slave, little one. At least not in the domestic sense. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Iliki In English quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#3. The whole strength of England lies in the fact that the enormous majority of the English people are snobs. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Iliki In English quotes by Jonathan Culver
#4. The English language is a work in progress. Have fun with it. #Quote by Jonathan Culver
Iliki In English quotes by Charlaine Harris
#5. They found the corpse in the closet of Alcide's apartment, and they hatched a plan to hide his remains." Eric sounded like that had been kind of cute of us.
"My Sookie hid a corpse?"
"I don't think you can be too sure about that possessive pronoun."
"Where did you learn that term, Northman?"
"I took 'English as a Second Language' at a community college in the seventies. #Quote by Charlaine Harris
Iliki In English quotes by John Fowles
#6. I don't think the English like me. I sold a colossal best seller in America, and they never really forgave me. #Quote by John Fowles
Iliki In English quotes by Frank Ryan
#7. What do scientists mean when they talk of a virus? This is not quite so elementary as some people might believe. In The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary, a virus is defined as "a morbid principle, or a poisonous venom, especially one capable of being introduced into another person or animal." The dictionary takes its cue from the Latin virus, which denotes a slimy liquid, a poison, an offensive odor or taste. It is a colorful definition, redolent of medieval notions of disease origins in evil emanations, but it offers little by way of scientific understanding. #Quote by Frank Ryan
Iliki In English quotes by Anna Akhmatova
#8. I've learned to live simply, wisely
I've learned to live simply, wisely,
To look at the sky and pray to God,
And to take long walks before evening
To wear out this useless anxiety.
When the burdocks rustle in the ravine
And the yellow-red clusters of rowan nod,
I compose happy verses
About mortal life, mortal and beautiful life.
I return. The fluffy cat
Licks my palm and sweetly purrs.
And on the turret of the sawmill by the lake
A bright flame flares.
The quiet is cut, occasionally,
By the cry of a stork landing on the roof.
And if you were to knock at my door,
It seems to me I wouldn't even hear.
(English version by Judith Hemschemeyer
Original Language Russian) #Quote by Anna Akhmatova
Iliki In English quotes by Trevor Nunn
#9. In my teens, I developed a passionate idolatry for a teacher of English literature. I wanted to do something that he would approve of more, so I thought I should be some sort of a scholar. #Quote by Trevor Nunn
Iliki In English quotes by Alan W. Watts
#10. For Lao-tzu's Taoism is the philosophical equivalent of jujitsu, or judo, which means the way of gentleness. Its basis is the principle of Tao, which may be translated the Way of Nature. But in the Chinese language the word which we render as "nature" has a special meaning not found in its English equivalent. Translated literally, it means "self-so." For to the Chinese, nature is what works and moves by itself without having to be shoved about, wound up, or controlled by conscious effort. Your heart beats "self-so," and, if you would give it half a chance, your mind can function "self-so" - though most of us are much too afraid of ourselves to try the experiment. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Iliki In English quotes by Michel Faber
#11. When I was a kid, it was thought I would do something in the visual arts because I was always drawing, but when we emigrated to Australia from Holland when I was seven, I learnt the English language, and I fell in love with it. #Quote by Michel Faber
Iliki In English quotes by Charles Dickens
#12. Year last past (supernaturally deficient in originality) rapped out theirs. Mere messages in the earthly order of events had lately come to the English Crown and People, from a congress of British subjects in America: which, strange #Quote by Charles Dickens
Iliki In English quotes by Karla Tipton
#13. Professor Cirksena, the only person within five hundred miles who knew anything about the history of English magic. Her former Ph.D. professor in psychology looked up from his work, and smiled. "Come in, my dear. #Quote by Karla Tipton
Iliki In English quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#14. Saw a film on cancer yesterday, shown by the English delegation. No doubt about it. I'm right. "Migratory cancer cells" are amoebic formations. They are produced from disintegrating tissue and thus demonstrate the law of tension and charge in its purest form - as does the orgastic convulsion.
Now money is a must - cancer the main issue - in every respect, even political.
It was a staggering experience. My intuition is good. I depend on it. Was absolutely driven to buy a microscope. The sight of the cancer cells was exactly as I had previously imagined it, had almost physically felt it would be. Cancer is an autoinfection of the body, of an organ. And researchers have no idea of what, hor, or where!! #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Iliki In English quotes by Alan Bradley
#15. I had thought for years, probably 30 or 40 years, that it would be a lot of fun to try my hand at a classic English mystery novel ... I love that form very much because the reader is so familiar with all of the types of characters that are in there that they already identify with the book. #Quote by Alan Bradley
Iliki In English quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#16. March brought the news of Frederick's marriage. He and Dolores wrote; she in Spanish-English, as was but natural, and he with little turns and inversions of words which proved how far the idioms of his bride's country were infecting him. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Iliki In English quotes by Dave Barry
#17. Speaking of food, English cuisine has received a lot of unfair criticism over the years, but the truth is that it can be a very pleasant surprise to the connoisseur of severely overcooked livestock organs served in lukewarm puddles of congealed grease. England manufactures most of the world's airline food, as well as all the food you ever ate in your junior-high-school cafeteria. #Quote by Dave Barry
Iliki In English quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#18. It's really rather easy to write eighth-century Chinese poetry," said Angus Lordie. "In English, of course. It requires little effort, I find. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Iliki In English quotes by Lola Salt
#19. I hope you'll stay for Blissology?' the man suddenly said, grabbing for her hand.
'For what?'
Davidoff smiled serenely at her. 'I'm a holistic escort. I have a PHD in Blissology from the Maharishi Kundalini University of Carlsbad. I'm about to hold a session.'
'Right,' said Lara. 'What do you do exactly?'
'Well, I interpret our human purpose by looking at quantum physics, an individual's astrological alignments and the I Ching.'
'And what does that mean exactly in English,' she questioned, feeling herself zoning out. #Quote by Lola Salt
Iliki In English quotes by Nora Sakavic
#20. No," Neil said, "but I would ask him why you're not medicated." There was a heartbeat of startled silence. The only one who didn't react was Andrew; even Kevin looked surprised. Nicky was the first to find his tongue, but he reverted to German to ask Aaron, "Am I crazy? Did I just see that happen?" "Don't look at me," Aaron said. "I'd prefer an answer in English," Neil said. Andrew put a thumb to the corner of his mouth and dragged it along his lips to erase his smile. "That sounds like an accusation, but I didn't lie to you." "Omission is the easiest way to lie," Neil said. "You could have corrected me." "Could have, didn't," Andrew said. "Figure it out for yourself." "I did," Neil said. He tapped two fingers to his temple, copying Andrew's mocking salute from their first meeting. "Better luck next time." "Oh," Andrew said. "Oh, you might actually turn out to be interesting. For a little while, at least. I don't think the amusement will last. It never does. #Quote by Nora Sakavic
Iliki In English quotes by Sabine Baring-Gould
#21. Cornwall, peopled mainly by Celts, but with an infusion of English blood, stands and always has stood apart from the rest of England, much, but in a less degree, as has Wales. #Quote by Sabine Baring-Gould
Iliki In English quotes by James Russell Lowell
#22. It is curious for one who studies the action and reaction of national literature on each other, to see the humor of Swift and Sterne and Fielding, after filtering through Richter, reappear in Carlyle with a tinge of Germanism that makes it novel, alien, or even displeasing, as the case may be, to the English mind. #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Iliki In English quotes by V.S. Naipaul
#23. Reality is always separate from the ideal; but in Trinidad this fantasy is a form of masochism and is infinitely more cheating than the fantasy which makes the poor delight in films about rich or makes the English singer use and American accent. #Quote by V.S. Naipaul
Iliki In English quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#24. My brother, being an English gentleman, possesses a library in all his houses, though he never opens a book. This is called fidelity to ancient tradition. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Iliki In English quotes by Bat For Lashes
#25. My dad was a Muslim and would pray five times a day. I would pray with him as much as I could, in the morning before school. Sometimes he would tell us moralistic tales about genies, magic carpets and wondrous lands. My mother is not religious - she's just English. #Quote by Bat For Lashes
Iliki In English quotes by David Wong
#26. English should have a word for that feeling you get when you first wake up in a strange room and have no freaking idea where you are.
Hotezzlement? #Quote by David Wong
Iliki In English quotes by Roald Amundsen
#27. The English have loudly and openly told the world that skis and dogs are unusable in these regions and that fur clothes are rubbish. We shall see - we shall see. #Quote by Roald Amundsen
Iliki In English quotes by Neil Munro
#28. That's richt. When we were campaignin' wi' Marlborough oor lads had mony time to sleep wi' the canon dirlin' aboot them. Ye get us'd to't, as Annalpa says aboot bein' a weedow woman. And if ye hae noticed it, Coont, there's nae people mair adapted for fechtin' under difeeculties than oor ane; that's what maks the Scots the finest sogers in the warld. It's the build o them, Lowlan' or Hielan', the breed o' them; the dour hard character o' their country and their mainner o' leevin'. We gied the English a fleg at the 'Forty-five,' didnae we? That was where the tartan cam' in: man, there's naethin' like us! #Quote by Neil Munro
Iliki In English quotes by George Orwell
#29. No one, at any rate no English writer, has written better about childhood than Dickens. In spite of all the knowledge that has accumulated since, in spite of the fact that children are now comparatively sanely treated, no novelist has shown the same power of entering into the child's point of view. #Quote by George Orwell
Iliki In English quotes by Kim Wright
#30. Scoff if you wish, but there is something morally dangerous in this endless variety of amusements that our era claims to provide. Soon there will be no word for "contentment" in the English language, for we shall no longer feel content and thus have no need to describe it. #Quote by Kim Wright
Iliki In English quotes by C.S. Lewis
#31. The knowledge that his thoughts could be thus managed from without did not awake terror but rage. Ransom found that he had risen, that he was approaching the Unman, that he was saying things, perhaps foolish things, in English. "Do you think I'm going to stand this?" he yelled. "Get out of my brain. It isn't yours, I tell you! get out of it. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Iliki In English quotes by Victor De Laveleye
#32. I am proposing to you as a rallying emblem the letter V, because V is the first letter of the words 'Victoire' in French, and 'Vrijheid' in Flemish ... the Victory which will give us back our freedom, the Victory of our good friends the English. Their word for Victory also begins with V. As you see, things fit all round. #Quote by Victor De Laveleye
Iliki In English quotes by Robin Wall Kimmerer
#33. Jim Thunder, at seventy-five the youngest of the speakers, is a round brown man of serious demeanor who spoke only in Potawatomi. He began solemnly, but as he warmed to his subject his voice lifted like a breeze in the birch trees and his hands began to tell the story. He became more and more animated, rising to his feet, holding us rapt and silent although almost no one understood a single word. He paused as if reaching the climax of his story and looked out at the audience with a twinkle of expectation. One of the grandmothers behind him covered her mouth in a giggle and his stern face suddenly broke into a smile as big and sweet as a cracked watermelon. He bent over laughing and the grandmas dabbed away tears of laughter, holding their sides, while the rest of us looked on in wonderment. When the laughter subsided, he spoke at last in English: "What will happen to a joke if no one will hear it any more? How lonely those words will be, when their is power gone. Where will they go? Off to join the stories that can never be told again. #Quote by Robin Wall Kimmerer
Iliki In English quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#34. Loretta folded her arms. She felt like a heroine in a movie, confronted by a jealous husband in a kitchen while outside the camera is aching to draw back and show a wonderland of adventures waiting for her - long, frantic rides on trains, landscapes of wounded soldiers, a lovely white desert across which a camel caravan draped voluptuously in veils moves slowly with a kind of mincing melancholy, the steamy jungles of India opening before British officers in white, young officers, the mysteries of English drawing-rooms cracking before the quick, humorless smirk of a wise young woman from America ... #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Iliki In English quotes by Mike Fitzpatrick
#35. Myspace alone has just over 80 million users and ranks as the sixth most popular English language website and the eighth most popular site in the world. #Quote by Mike Fitzpatrick
Iliki In English quotes by James Gray
#36. There are very few movies in English about romantic obsession told with a seriousness of purpose. #Quote by James Gray
