King Oliver quotes by Clint Eastwood

King Oliver quotes by Jason Born
#14. The following spring was a time of calving. Great icebergs calved from the vast glaciers which stretched down to our fjords from distant mountains. The heifers and cows of Kaupangen gave birth to over one hundred calves that spring. Most survived. Gudrod, the master shepherd, had seventy-five new lambkins skipping after their mothers. Ten sets of lamb twins were born in the city that year. Bitches had pups suckling at their breasts. The mountain goats that stood watch over the fjord, indifferently chewing on the wild grasses between the rocks, had kids following them on their steep paths. The residents of the city, too, gave birth. Twenty-one new healthy babies were born within thirty days of the spring equinox; boys and girls with thick blonde, brown, black, or red hair; others with smooth bald heads. Olaf, my third father, my king, had a son, stillborn. Olaf wept. Kenna wept. I wept as the boy was buried inside the casket with his mother in our graveyard by the church. #Quote by Jason Born
King Oliver quotes by Daniel J. King
#15. Scottish golf is a more public game. It is more reasonably priced and they play faster. It isn't cart golf. The only reason resorts force you into carts is for the money. They are selling off the soul of the game for a few dollars. #Quote by Daniel J. King
King Oliver quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#16. The whole design of the gospel is to lead us onward and upward to greater achievement, even, eventually, to godhood. This great possibility was enunciated by the Prophet Joseph Smith in the King Follet sermon. It is this grand and incomparable concept: As God now is, man may become! #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley

King Oliver quotes by Teal Ceagh
#18. Veris gave a low chuckle as they stepped into the building. He took off his glasses and put them in his breast pocket. "I've always said women were stronger, when it came to pure courage, haven't I?" he said to Brody.
Brody stabbed at the top elevator button. "There's a reason we have a queen and not a king. #Quote by Teal Ceagh
King Oliver quotes by Christina Daley
#19. There is a land I've heard of beyond the shining sea
Her borders are all boundless, her citizens all free
Where Life is not a question, where Hope is not unseen
Her roads are paved with Mercy, her King rules with Peace
And as I go this narrow way, I hardly cannot wait
Until that one day that I may stand before her gates. #Quote by Christina Daley
King Oliver quotes by Deyth Banger

King Oliver quotes by Stephen King
#22. My friend wants to get moving and so do I,' Eddie said. 'We've got miles to go yet.'
I know that. It's on your face, son. Like a scar.'
Eddie was fascinated by the idea of duty and ka as something that left a mark, something that might look like decoration to one eye and disfigurement to another. Outside, thunder cracked and lightning flashed. #Quote by Stephen King
King Oliver quotes by King Krule
#23. When I realized I could write lyrics and let someone that I knew listen to them, but not know that the song was about them - say it was a girl. I could write this song about how I feel about this girl, I could play it to them. I just loved it, because all of the words would speak to them. I could see them slowly falling in love with me. #Quote by King Krule
King Oliver quotes by Kid Cudi
#24. I went out of my way to make 'Immortal' sound perfect. 'Immortal,' 'Just What I Am,' and 'King Wizard,' those are perfect beats. Not a lot of people can perform on them. I say that meaning they're tailor-made for me. #Quote by Kid Cudi
King Oliver quotes by Bret Easton Ellis
#25. No, really Patrick. What do you want me to call you?"

King, I'm thinking. King, Evelyn. I want you to call me King. But I don't say this. "Evelyn. I don't want you to call me anything. I don't think we should see each other anymore."

"But your friends are my friends. My friends are your friends. I don't think it would work," she says, and then, staring at a spot above my mouth, "You have a tiny fleck on the top of your lip. Use your napkin."

Exasperated, I brush the fleck away. "Listen, I, know that your friends are my friends and vice versa. I've thought about that." After a pause I say, breathing in, "You can have them."

Finally she looks at me, confused, and murmurs, "You're really serious, aren't you?"

"Yes", I say, "I am."

"But... what about us? What about the past?" she asks blankly.

"The past isn't real. It's just a dream," I say. "Don't mention the past."

She narrows her eyes with suspicion. "Do you have something against me, Patrick?" And then the hardness in her face changes instantaneously to expectation, maybe hope.

"Evelyn," I sigh. "I'm sorry. You're just... not terribly important... to me. #Quote by Bret Easton Ellis
King Oliver quotes by Alison Weir

King Oliver quotes by Bo Burnham
#27. Poetic talent is really easy to fake when thy sentences doth no f-king sense make. #Quote by Bo Burnham
King Oliver quotes by Stephen King
#28. If it were possible to go back in a time machine and change the stupid things some of us did in grammar school and junior high, Soups old buddy, that gadget would be booked up right into the twenty-third century. #Quote by Stephen King
King Oliver quotes by King Tuff
#29. My best moments are when I write songs out of nowhere. #Quote by King Tuff
King Oliver quotes by Richard Beck
#30. The Harrowing of Hell is so important to the Eastern Orthodox Church that they reenact it during their Easter liturgy. The priest exits the church with a cross held high, and the congregation remains inside. The church doors are locked and the lights are turned off. The darkened church becomes hell, the Devil's jail. The priest then pounds on the doors of the church - symbolizing Christ assaulting the gates of Hades - proclaiming "Open the doors to the Lord of the powers, the king of glory!" Inside the church the people make a great noise of rattling chains, the resistance of hell to the coming of Christ. Eventually the doors are opened, the cross enters, and the church is lit and filled with incense. For the Orthodox, Easter is all about how Jesus defeats the power of death. #Quote by Richard Beck
King Oliver quotes by Diana Wynne Jones
#31. She stared at the King. The King stared back. It was a disaster. #Quote by Diana Wynne Jones
King Oliver quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#32. Before you were born, the year ninety-two,
lost what was precious, and that what was new.
The blink of an eye, the beat of a heart,
Out went the candle, and guilt was my part.

A king and his knight went hunting a boar,
A rat and his friends were hunting for love.
Together they fought, till one was alive.
The knight sadly wept, no king had survived.

The answers to riddles, to secrets and more,
Are found in the middle of legends and love.
Seek out the answer, and learn if you can
The face of regret, the life of a man. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
King Oliver quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#33. We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
King Oliver quotes by Clive Barker
#34. I'm constantly trying to make what Stephen King called head movies or skull movies: things should be playing out on the inside of your eyes, if you will, without you having to think about me as an author being present.
I have no interest in being present, in intervening between you and the work. My job is to be as invisible as possible. My job is to say, 'Hey, I wrote this book and I'm on the cover, bye bye!'
The story should have its own momentum; it should make its own way. I have no patience for that showy kind of writing, which is all about how clever the writer is. Postmodern stuff just leaves me totally cold.
I'm much more interested in being drawn into a book, and I want to create the kind of writing which hopefully makes you turn and turn the pages. #Quote by Clive Barker
King Oliver quotes by Charles Dickens
