King Priam quotes by David Gemmell
#1. So you will not kneel to me?" He said.
I will kneel to no man, "She answered, preparing herself for the push that would send her toppling to her death and ready to haul him with her.
You interest me, girl. There is no fear in you."
Nor in you, apparently, King Priam."
He looked surprised. "Fear if for weaklings. Look around you. This is Troy. My Troy. The richest and most powerful city in the world. It was not built by fearful men, but my men with imagination and courage. It's wealth grows Daily, and with it the influence that wealth brings. #Quote by David Gemmell
King Priam quotes by Agatha Christie
#2. Take the Pyramids. Great blocks of useless masonry, put up to minister to the egoism of a despotic bloated king. Think of the sweated masses who toiled to build them and died doing it. It makes me sick to think of the suffering and torture they represent."

Mrs. Allerton said cheerfully: "You'd rather have no Pyramids, no Parthenon, no beautiful tombs or temples - just the solid satisfaction of knowing that people got three meals a day and died in their beds."

The young man directed his scowl in her direction. "I think human beings matter more than stones. #Quote by Agatha Christie
King Priam quotes by Billie Jean King
#3. It's about learning your craft. That's a wonderful thing
especially with today's consumerism and instant gratification. You can'tbuy that. It's about making decisions, corrections, choices. I don't think it's so much about becoming a tennis player. It's about becoming a person. #Quote by Billie Jean King
King Priam quotes by Lily King
#4. If we didn't have fear, imagine the creativity in the world. Fear holds us back every step of the way. #Quote by Lily King
King Priam quotes by Yvette Clarke
#5. Even after facing jail, Martin Luther King, Jr. courageously and boldly spoke out against racial inequality. #Quote by Yvette Clarke
King Priam quotes by Michael Grant
#6. Penny rolled over, got to her feet, trying to get control of her scattered mind, but Quinn was behind her now and had his powerful arm around her neck.
"I will snap your neck, Penny. I swear to God, I will snap your neck. Nothing you can do will stop me."
Penny went limp. "You think the king will let you get away with this, Quinn?" she hissed.
"Anyone messes with me, Penny, you or anyone else, and I go on strike. See how well you enjoy life without me and my crews. Without food. #Quote by Michael Grant
King Priam quotes by Stephen King
#7. Poison ivy, because who needed a case of that on your pecker). We're all here in Derry. No camp, no relatives, no vacations, no AWAY. All right here. Present and accounted for. There's #Quote by Stephen King
King Priam quotes by Stephen King
#8. Is he immortal do you think? Because I've seen much in my years, and heard rumors of much more, but never of a man or woman who lived forever."
" I don't think he needs to be immortal. I think all he needs to do is write the right story. Because some stories do live forever #Quote by Stephen King
King Priam quotes by Stephen King
#9. As we get older, our fears, in some way, sharpen and become more personal, because we can no longer - let's say take a book like "It" or maybe "Christine," and say these are make-believe fears. #Quote by Stephen King
King Priam quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#10. We have, it seems, shut the poor out of our minds and driven them from the mainstream of our society. We have allowed the poor to become invisible, and we have become angry when they make their presence felt. But just as nonviolence has exposed the ugliness of racial injustice, we must now find ways to expose and heal the sickness of poverty - not just its symptoms, but its basic causes. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
King Priam quotes by Jack LaLanne
#11. When it comes to health, diet is the Queen, but exercise is the King. #Quote by Jack LaLanne
King Priam quotes by Stephen King

King Priam quotes by Larry King
#13. Taki

As a prolific author and journalist, Taki has written for many top-rated publications, including the Spectator, the London Sunday Times, Vanity Fair, National Review, and many others. Greek-born and American-educated, Taki is a well-known international personality and a respected social critic all over the world.

In June 1987, I was an usher at the wedding of Harry Somerset, Marquis of Worcester, to Tracy Ward. The wedding and ensuing ball took place in the grand Ward country house, attended by a large portion of British society, including the Prince and Princess of Wales. Late in the evening, while I was in my cups, a friend, Nicky Haslam, grabbed my arm and introduced me to Diana, who was coming off the dance floor. We exchanged pleasantries, me slurring my words to the extent that she suddenly took my hand, looked at me straight in the face, and articulated, "T-a-k-e y-o-u-r t-i-m-e." She mistook my drunken state for a severe speech impediment and went into her queen-of-hearts routine. Nicky, of course, ruined it all by pulling her away and saying, "Oh, let him be, ma'am; he's drunk as usual. #Quote by Larry King
King Priam quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#14. Snake," Wyatt announced. "A big black one."

"There's dozens of them," Royce explained.

"Where?" Alric asked.

"Mostly behind you on the walls."

"What?" the king said, aghast. "Why didn't you say something?"

"Knowing would only make traveling slower."

"Are they poisonous?" Mauvin asked.

They could all see the silhouetted shoulders of Royce's shadow on the far wall shrug.

"I demand you inform me of such things in future!" Alric declared.

"Do you want to know about the giant millipedes, then too?"

"Are you joking?"

"Royce doesn't make jokes," Arista told him as she looked around, anxiously hugging herself. Immediately her robe brightened and she spotted two snakes on the walls, but they were a safe distance away.

"He must be joking," Alric muttered quietly. "I don't see any."

"You aren't looking up," the thief said.

Arista did not want to. Some instinct, a tiny voice, warned her to fight the impulse, but in the end she just could not help herself. On the low ceiling, illuminated brightly by the robe, slithered a mass of wormlike bugs with an uncountable number of hairlike feet. Each was nearly five inches in length and close to the width of a man's finger. There were so many that they swarmed over each other until it was hard to tell if the ceiling was rock at all. Arista felt a chill run down her back. She clenched her teeth, f #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
King Priam quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#15. To how much envy and fraud and hypocrisy the state of a tyrannous king is subject unto, and how they who are commonly called [Eupatridas Gk.], i.e. nobly born, are in some sort incapable, or void of natural affection. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
King Priam quotes by Rebecca Makkai
#16. So here, patient listener: your soothing epilogue. Imagine him happy. Imagine him spinning in circles ... Imagine his heaven, where he can float through characters and books at will. (Let's dream him up a king, a giant, a boy who can fly.) Imagine him already there, under his covers with the flashlight. #Quote by Rebecca Makkai
King Priam quotes by Patrick Suskind
#17. He had used only a drop of his perfume for his performance in Grasse. There was enough left to enslave the whole world. If he wanted, he could be feted in Paris, not by tens of thousands, but by hundreds of thousands of people; or could walk out to Versailles and have the King kiss his feet; write the Pope a perfumed letter and reveal himself as the new Messiah; be anointed in Notre-Dame as Supreme Emperor before kings, or even as God come to earth. #Quote by Patrick Suskind
King Priam quotes by Stephen King
#18. He invited the driver of the limo to perform an illegal sex act on himself. #Quote by Stephen King
King Priam quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#19. We must only demand that which each individual can give," said the king. "The authority rests first on reason. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
King Priam quotes by Stephen King
#20. I think we fought Vietnam for the benefits of civilization, and certainly we fought it to oppose authority. To show our authority, to show we weren't weak. Isn't that what Nixon kept saying? "We have to show the world that we're not weak." So of course what we ended up showing the world was that we were, yep, weak. 'Cause we couldn't beat these kids in black pajamas. #Quote by Stephen King
King Priam quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#21. Every crisis has both its dangers and its opportunities. Each can spell either salvation or doom. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
King Priam quotes by Stephen King
#22. But see that you get on. That's your job in this hard world, to keep your love alive and see that you get on, no matter what. Pull your act together and just go on. #Quote by Stephen King
King Priam quotes by Megan Whalen Turner
#23. Unkingly, in so many ways, My King. #Quote by Megan Whalen Turner
King Priam quotes by Stephen King
#24. Is maybe the best we can do?" Callahan asked. "Yeah," Eddie said. "For the time being, I guess it is. #Quote by Stephen King
King Priam quotes by Sherwood Smith
#25. And you really are the Countess of Tlanth?"
I nodded.
She closed her eyes and sighed. "Emis over on Nikaru Farm is going to be soooo jealous when she finds out. She thinks she's so very fine a lady, just because she has a cousin in service at Athanarel and her brother in the Guard. There is no news from Athanarel if she doesn't know it first, or more of it than anyone."
"What is the news?" I asked, feeling the old fear close round me.
She pursed her lips. "Maybe Mama is right about my tongue running like a fox in the wild. Are you certain you want all this now?"
"Very much," I said.
"It comes to this: The Duke of Savona and the Marquis of Shevraeth have another wager, on which one can find you first. The King thinks it great sport, and they have people on all the main roads leading west to the mountains."
"Did they say anything about my escape?"
She shook her head. "Luz overheard some merchants at the Harvest--that's the inn down the road at Garval--saying they thought it was wizard work or a big conspiracy. I went with Papa when he returned to the Three Rings in Remalna-city, and everyone was talking about it." She grinned. "Elun Kepruid--he's the innkeeper's son at Three Rings, and he likes me plenty--was telling me all the real gossip from the palace. The King was very angry, and at first wanted to execute all the guards who had duty the night you got out, except the ones he really wanted had disappeared, and everyone at Court though #Quote by Sherwood Smith
King Priam quotes by Stephen King
#26. Why do you choose to write about such gruesome subjects?
I usually answer this with another question: Why do you assume that I have a choice?
Writing is a catch-as-catch-can sort of occupation. All of us seem to come equipped with filters on the floors of our minds, and all the filters have differing sizes and meshes. What catches in my filter may run right through yours. What catches in yours may pass through mine, no sweat. All of us seem to have a built-in obligation to sift through the sludge that gets caught in our respective mind-filters, and what we find there usually develops into some sort of sideline.

The accountant may also be a photographer. The astronomer may collect coins. The school-teacher may do gravestone rubbings in charcoal. The sludge caught in the mind's filter, the stuff that refuses to go through, frequently becomes each person's private obsession. In civilized society we have an unspoken agreement to call our obsessions "hobbies."

Sometimes the hobby can become a full-time job. The accountant may discover that he can make enough money to support his family taking pictures; the schoolteacher may become enough of an expert on grave rubbings to go on the lecture circuit. And there are some professions which begin as hobbies and remain hobbies even after the practitioner is able to earn his living by pursuing his hobby; but because "hobby" is such a bumpy, common-sounding little word, we also have an unspoken agreement that #Quote by Stephen King
King Priam quotes by Aldous Huxley
#27. He waved his hand; and it was as though, with an invisible feather wisk, he had brushed away a little dust, and the dust was Harappa, was Ur of the Chaldees; some spider-webs, and they were Thebes and Babylon and Cnossos and Mycenae. Whisk. Whisk - and where was Odysseus, where was Job, where were Jupiter and Gotama and Jesus? Whisk - and those specks of antique dirt called Athens and Rome, Jerusalem and the Middle Kingdom - all were gone. Whisk - the place where Italy had been empty. Whisk, the cathedrals; whisk, whisk, King Lear and the Thoughts of Pascal. Whisk, Passion; whisk, Requiem; whisk, Symphony; whisk ... #Quote by Aldous Huxley
King Priam quotes by Florence King
#28. Writers make everybody nervous but we terrify Silly Service workers. Our apartments always look like a front for something, and no matter how carefully we tidy up for guests we always seem to miss the note card that says, "Margaret has to die soon." We own the kind of books that spies use to construct codes, like The Letters of Mme. de Sevigne, and we are the only people in the world who write oxymoron in the margin of the Bible. Manuscripts in the fridge in case of fire, Strunk's Elements in the bathroom, the Laramie City Directory explained away with "It might come in handy," all strike fear in the GS-7 heart. Nobody really wants to sleep with a writer, but Silly Service workers won't even talk to us. #Quote by Florence King
King Priam quotes by Ansen Dibell
#29. J.R.R.Tolkien has confessed that about a third of the way through The Fellowship of the Ring, some ruffian named Strider confronted the hobbits in an inn, and Tolkien was in despair. He didn't know who Strider was, where the book was going, or what to write next. Strider turns out to be no lesser person than Aragorn, the unrecognized and uncrowned king of all the forces of good, whose restoration to rule is, along with the destruction of the evil ring, the engine that moves the plot of the whole massive trilogy, The Lord of the Rings. #Quote by Ansen Dibell
King Priam quotes by Lena Horne
#30. I was lucky, as many of my generation was, in having a man like Dr. King in our lives. He came at a time that we needed to take a long look at each other and see how similar we were. #Quote by Lena Horne
King Priam quotes by Martin Luther King Jr.
#31. What matters is not how long you live…but how you live. #Quote by Martin Luther King Jr.
King Priam quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#32. There is within human nature an amazing potential for goodness. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
King Priam quotes by Anne Stuart
#33. He was accustomed to women wanting him. What shocked him was the simple fact that he wanted her.
Not hot, energetic sex. Not a blow job from a novice. He wanted her with a
perplexing intensity he hadn't felt in years. He was the King of Death, and she was his consort.
And no amount of common sense could distract him. #Quote by Anne Stuart
King Priam quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#34. Harbour no hatred in your heart against anyone. People who do this have placed their influence on the risky line. #Quote by Israelmore Ayivor
