Janocko Vikings quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#1. Some make their worlds without knowing it. Their universes are just sesame seeds and three-day weekends and dial tones and skinned knees and physics and driftwood and emerald earrings and books dropped in bathtubs and holes in guitars and plastic and empathy and hardwood and heavy water and high black stockings and the history of the Vikings and brass and obsolescence and burnt hair and collapsed souffles and the impossibility of not falling in love in an art museum with the person standing next to you looking at the same painting and all the other things that just happen and are. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Janocko Vikings quotes by Clive Standen
#2. My first press tour for 'Vikings' was pretty overwhelming. Between all the hotels, TV shows and talking a lot, I would get done and have to sit in silence for a while. It was exhausting, and you really have to focus. #Quote by Clive Standen

Janocko Vikings quotes by Jo Grafford
#5. My heart might very well beat itself from my chest," she whispered, "and 'tis difficult to breathe."
"How odd." Passion thickened his voice. "I seem to be suffering the same symptoms. Does anything else plague you?"
"A terrible weakness," she whispered shakily. "If you let me go, I am not entirely certain I shall be able to stand."
He buried his face in her neck. "Then I shall never let you go. #Quote by Jo Grafford

Janocko Vikings quotes by Drew Magary
#8. My job happens to be sports-related, so it's like my duty to watch football. It's my job. But that's not a change for me. When you're 18, it's life and death, because you don't have a kid, and it's a much bigger deal when you're 18. Having a kid - when the Vikings lost the 2009 NFC title game, it sucked, and I'm not happy about it, but my kid is still alive. You have to have that horrible forced perspective that you don't want. #Quote by Drew Magary
Janocko Vikings quotes by Claudia Gray
#9. Remember how I told you that the Vikings sacked my village and took me back with them?" Ranulf was speaking to Vic now; I'd never heard this story before. "All young men among the Vikings were taught to fight."

Janocko Vikings quotes by Katheryn Winnick
#10. The Norse way of speaking, no one really knew what the Vikings sounded liked, they were Norsemen. The accent is really a combination of a Scandinavian accent, maybe with a Swedish accent and an old way of speaking. #Quote by Katheryn Winnick

Janocko Vikings quotes by Jennifer McKeithen
#13. Far, far out on the open sea a platform of stone held firm against the tossing waves. At first sight, it appeared as nothing out of the ordinary, other than that it lay in the middle of nowhere.
That was the view on the surface. Beneath the water existed an entirely alien world. #Quote by Jennifer McKeithen
Janocko Vikings quotes by Michael Hirst
#14. If you're in America or Europe, walk for three blocks, and you'll pass about 14 Vikings. Their reach was immense. #Quote by Michael Hirst
Janocko Vikings quotes by Al Franken

Janocko Vikings quotes by Jo Grafford
#16. A year ago on my twenty-third birthday, I rebuffed the advances of a beautiful young woman whom I did not love. Alas, she turned out to be a sorceress. She repaid me by casting a spell that forces every female I touch to fall into a frenzy of lust." His mouth twisted bitterly. "Thus she robbed me of one of mankind's greatest gifts - the ability to seek and find true love. #Quote by Jo Grafford
Janocko Vikings quotes by Octavia Randolph
#17. He lowered his voice. "You are a true shield-maiden; you do not turn from a scar on a man's face."I looked at him and did not lower my eyes. "My father was an ealdorman, and his brother ealdorman after him. He taught me that a scar is the badge of honour of the warrior, and this I believe."He regarded me for a long moment. "I think I am glad we did not face your father and his brother in battle," he said, "for they were of better stuff than what we have found here."In saying this, he gave my dead kinsmen much praise. I felt that praise came rarely from the Danes, and took a strange pleasure in hearing him say this. I did not speak, but he lifted his cup to me, and I again took up mine. - Sidroc the Dane to Ceridwen #Quote by Octavia Randolph
Janocko Vikings quotes by H. Beam Piper
#18. Well, our operations are definable as robbery and murder," he agreed. "Space Vikings are professional robbers and murderers. #Quote by H. Beam Piper
Janocko Vikings quotes by Shelly Thacker
#19. ... not within my memory."

"All 300 years of it?"

That comment earned her a frown.
"My apologies," she amended lightly. "I supposed I should not tease you about being so old."

"Nay, feel free."
His slow smile flashed in the moonlight.
"I would be happy to prove to you that I possess all the prowess and stamina of a man of 30. Mayhap I should demonstrate. #Quote by Shelly Thacker
Janocko Vikings quotes by Rick Riordan
#20. Back when I was a regular mortal kid, I didn't know much about combat.
I had some murky ideas that armies would line up, blow trumpets, and then march forward to kill one another in an orderly fashion. If I thought about Viking combat at all, I would envision some dude yelling SHIELD WALL! and a bunch of hairy blond guys calmly forming ranks and merging their shields into some cool geometric pattern like a polyhedron or a Power Ranger Megazord.
Actual battle was nothing like that. At least, not any version I'd ever been in.
It was more like a cross between interpretive dance, lucha libre wrestling, and a daytime talk show fight. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Janocko Vikings quotes by Tara Brown
#21. Vikings don't have faults, they have clubs. #Quote by Tara Brown
Janocko Vikings quotes by Cullen Bunn

Janocko Vikings quotes by Heather Day Gilbert
#24. I'm not surprised he wants to challenge me here, where no one can protect me. He thinks I'm a weak woman. He thinks wrong. #Quote by Heather Day Gilbert
Janocko Vikings quotes by Ashton Kutcher
#25. My mom's whole side of the family, they're all Packers fans. My mom's a Bears fan. My stepdad is a Vikings guy. So that gets ugly. My mom sits upstairs watching the Bears game; he sits in the basement. They can't watch it together. Football's a violent anger in our family dynamic. #Quote by Ashton Kutcher
Janocko Vikings quotes by David Zindell
#26. I want to begin my fight for the future of our world with the sharing of a vision. Everyone has, or should have, a vision. This is mine.
It is a simple vision, really. It begins with the creation of a single, sane, planetary civilization. That will have to be very much like a utopia. People will deny the possibility of such a dream. They will say that people have always been at each other's throats, that this is just human nature, the way of the world. That we can never change the world.
But that is just silly. That is like saying that two battling brothers, children, will never grow up to be the best of friends who watch each other's backs. Once, a long time ago, people lost their sons and daughters to the claws of big cats. In classic times, the Greeks and the Romans saw slavery as evil, but as a necessary evil that could never go away. Only seventy years ago, Germany and France came to death blows in the greatest war in history; now they share a common currency, open borders, and a stake in the future of Europe. The Scandinavians once terrorized the world as marauding Vikings gripping bloody axes and swords, while now their descendents refrain from spanking their children, and big blond–haired men turn their hands to the care of babies.
We all have a sense of what this new civilization must look like: No war. No hunger. No want. No very wealthy using their money to manipulate laws and lawmakers so that they become ever more wealthy while they cast the poor i #Quote by David Zindell
Janocko Vikings quotes by Russell Freedman
#27. I visited the archeological site at the northern tip of Newfoundland. There is no question about it. It has been definitely determined that the Vikings were there for about 10 years - specifically, Leif Erikson and his extended family. #Quote by Russell Freedman
Janocko Vikings quotes by Ellsworth Huntington
#28. It seems strange that almost no other traces of the strong vikings are found in America. #Quote by Ellsworth Huntington
Janocko Vikings quotes by Linnea Hartsuyker
#29. That is all any of us can do, delay death. But some are more cowardly about it than others. #Quote by Linnea Hartsuyker
Janocko Vikings quotes by Rick Riordan
#30. Jack followed me around the deck, alternating between Abba hits (Vikings are huge Abba fans) and telling me stories about the old days when he and Frey would roam the Nine Worlds, spreading sunshine and happiness and occasionally killing people. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Janocko Vikings quotes by Daniel Marques
#31. The Roman Empire, Vikings, British, Spanish, Portuguese,... all raped women, but it always seems worse when done to us. #Quote by Daniel Marques
Janocko Vikings quotes by Mark Kurlansky
#32. ONE GROUP OF Vikings remained in Iceland, becoming the Icelanders. A second group remained in the Faroe Islands. The main body of Vikings were given lands in the Seine basin in exchange for protecting Paris. They settled into northern France and within a century were speaking a dialect of French and became known as the Normans. Soon the Vikings had vanished. #Quote by Mark Kurlansky
Janocko Vikings quotes by Njord Kane
#33. In this Treaty, King Charles the Simple in exchange for the Viking's loyalty and pledge of feudal allegiance, gave the city of Rouen and the area of what is present-day Upper Normandy to Rollo and his men in what established the Duchy of Normandy, named from the Frankish word for the Viking Men of the North, or Northmen - Normanii. #Quote by Njord Kane
Janocko Vikings quotes by Henry Miller
#34. I am a man of the old world, a seed that was transplanted by the wind, a seed which failed to blossom in the mushroom oasis of America. I belong on the heavy tree of the past. My allegiance, physical and spiritual, it is with the men of Europe, those who were once Franks, Gauls, Vikings, Huns, Tatars, what not. The climate for my body and soul is here where there is quickness and corruption. I am proud not to belong in this century. #Quote by Henry Miller
Janocko Vikings quotes by Kate Winslet
#35. I look very different from how people expect me to be ... Clearly they think I'm a great big fat viking. #Quote by Kate Winslet
Janocko Vikings quotes by Ouida
#36. It is the north wind that lashes men into Vikings; it is the soft, luscious south wind which lulls them to lotus dreams. #Quote by Ouida
Janocko Vikings quotes by Umberto Eco
#37. Perhaps if this abbey exists and if we still speak of the Holy Roman Empire, we owe it to the Irish. At that time, the rest of Europe was reduced to a heap of ruins; one day they declared invalid all baptisms imparted by certain priests in Gaul because they baptized 'in nomine patris et filae' [In the name of the Father and of the Daughter]--and not because they practiced a new heresy and considered Jesus a woman, but because they no longer knew any Latin....

Vikings from the Far North came down along the rivers to sack Rome. The pagan temples were falling into ruins, and the Christian ones did not yet exist. It was only the monks of Hibernia in their monasteries who wrote and read, read and wrote, and illuminated, and then jumped into little boats made of animal hide and navigated towards these lands and evangelized them as if you people were infidels, you understand? #Quote by Umberto Eco
Janocko Vikings quotes by Mark Batterson
#38. I'm a lifelong Vikings and Packers fan because I lived in both Minnesota and Wisconsin as a kid. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Janocko Vikings quotes by Mark Lawrence
#39. The Danes had a great love of sea stories and the old sagas. Snorri provided the former from personal experience and Kara the latter from her vast store of such trivia. I half-thought some of the duke's men would volunteer to join the Undoreth and travel with the Vikings such was the level of worship on display ... #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Janocko Vikings quotes by Rick Riordan
#40. Wow," said Samirah as we approached the dock. "You're right, Alex. That ship is really yellow."
I sighed. "Not you, too."
Alex grinned. "I vote we name it the Big Banana. All in favour?"
"Don't you dare," I said.
"I love it," Mallory said, throwing Alex a mooring line.
Keen and Gunderson had emerged from belowdecks in an apparent truce, though both sported fresh black eyes.
"It's decided, then!" bellowed Halfborn. "The good ship Mikillgulr!"
T.J. scratched his head. "There's an Old Norse term for big banana?"
"Well, not exactly," Halfborn admitted. "The Vikings never sailed far enough south to discover bananas. But Mikillgulr means big yellow. That's close enough!"
I looked skyward with a silent prayer: Frey, god of summer, Dad, thanks for the boat. But could I suggest that forest green is also a great summery colour, and please stop embarrassing me in front of my friends? Amen. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Janocko Vikings quotes by Larry Trask
#41. In the ninth and tenth centuries the Vikings invaded Britain from Scandinavia and settled in large numbers. Their language, which we call Old Norse, was at least partly comprehensible to the English, who did not hesitate to take over hundreds of words from it: skirt, window, scrub, sky, give, hit, kick, scatter, scrape, skill, scowl, score, fellow, want, skin, knife, law, happy, ugly, wrong and even the pronouns they and them. #Quote by Larry Trask
Janocko Vikings quotes by Gabriel Byrne
#42. Viking women were able to rule kingdoms, divorce husbands, own land; and Vikings were very progressive in terms of the rights of women. #Quote by Gabriel Byrne
Janocko Vikings quotes by Michael Hirst
#43. With 'Vikings,' I had the task of making these people interesting and, to a point, sympathetic. #Quote by Michael Hirst
Janocko Vikings quotes by Robert Low
#44. I had forgotten that, while Thor hurls his Hammer from storm-clouds, Odin prefers his strike to come out of a calm sky. #Quote by Robert Low
Janocko Vikings quotes by Keith Henson
#45. Genetic studies in Iceland have found that many of the women who were the founding stock of Iceland came from England and what is now France. Some were probably captured and carried off in Viking raids only 40 generations ago. #Quote by Keith Henson
Janocko Vikings quotes by Johan Hegg
#46. I go to my parents' over Christmas. I definitely do, but I don't see it as a Christmas because during Christmas there was also a Viking holiday. So I just to choose to see it as that! #Quote by Johan Hegg
Janocko Vikings quotes by Shelly Laurenston
#47. But she'd been wrong about Vig. He wasn't broken. He wasn't destroyed by a cruel society.
He was just an introvert with an aversion to shaving.
And he liked her.
Liked her, liked her. #Quote by Shelly Laurenston
Janocko Vikings quotes by Alexa Land
#48. Of course, back then I was crimping my hair and wearing enormous shoulder pads that made me look like I played for the Minnesota Vikings. It's amazing anybody got laid in 1985, given what passed for fashion!" "I'll #Quote by Alexa Land
Janocko Vikings quotes by Seamus Heaney
#49. Did you ever hear tell,'
said Jimmy Farrell,
'of the skulls they have
in the city of Dublin?
White skulls and black skulls
and yellow skulls, and some
with full teeth, and some
haven't only but one,'
and compounded history
in the pan of 'an old Dane,
maybe, was drowned
in the Flood.'
My words lick around
cobbled quays, go hunting
lightly as pampooties
over the skull-capped ground.
-Viking Dublin: Trial Pieces #Quote by Seamus Heaney
