Kuibyshev Port quotes by William Kherbek
#1. One thing you can say for the middle ages, in those days, if you went out to find something, like say, the True Cross, you always managed to find it. Those were the days. Even when two different people were sent out in search of the same thing, say John the Baptist's skull, for example, they both found it. Just try finding that kind of efficiency these days [http://www.port-magazine.com/art-phot...]. #Quote by William Kherbek
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#2. He did not wander aimlessly, though he never knew which village would be his next port of call. He was seeking no particular place, but a mood, an influence - indeed, a way of life. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Christopher Moore
#3. Henri was giggling now, barely able to contain himself. "So I'm to shovel coal into my shoes hoping no one notices, while smoke and steam - what of the vapor?"
"There's little more smoke than a cigar, and the steam would be barely visible by gas lamp. It vents out the back of your trousers, under the tail of your coat."
"Marvelous!" said Henri. "I use a similar port for my own vapors. I want to try them, immediately. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Junipero Serra

Kuibyshev Port quotes by Jen Lancaster
#5. I want to change my life ... except I sort of like it. I mean, I couldn't be more delighted every Monday night after Fletch goes to bed when I come downstairs, pull up the Bachelor on TiVo, drink Riesling, and eat cheddar/port wine Kaukauna cheese without freakign out over fat grams. I'm perpetually in a good mood because I do everything I want. I love having the freedom to skip the gym to watch a Don Knots movie on the Disney Channel without a twinge of guilt. I've figured out how to not be beholden to what other people believe I should be doing, and when the world tells me I ought to be a size eight, I can thumb my nose at them in complete empowerment. #Quote by Jen Lancaster
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#6. The whore, who said her name was Sandra, offered me delights unobtainable outside of Place Pigalle and Port Said. I said I wasn't interested, and she was bright enough to say that she wasn't really interested either. As things turned out, we had both overestimated our apathies, but not by much. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#7. There is no safe port; there are only ports that we feel ourselves safe. #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#8. You can't see new places by staying in the port! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Alyxandra Harvey
#9. Isn't he utterly divine? Beautiful?"
"Somehow,I think he'd disagree with that last one." And not enough with the first.
"All right," she waved her dismissively. "Handsome then. Do you think he noticed me?"
"We were sprawled in a heap of twitching limbs and lace at his feet. He would have had to have been unconscious not to notice us."
She wrinkled her nose. "I meant,do you think he noticed I'm nearly on the Marriage Mart now?"
I didn't know how to reply. I didn't want to hurt her feelings,but I wasn't sure Frederic noticed anything other than cards and port.He was twenty years old,after all,and quite wealthy. He was acting exactly as he was expected to.
Her cheeks were red. "We should return before Mother wonders where we've gone off to.Heaven forbid we might be somewhere enjoying ourselves! #Quote by Alyxandra Harvey
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Earl Nightingale
#10. But the 3% who have taken the time and exercised the discipline to decide on a destination and to chart a course sail straight and far across the deep oceans of life, reaching one port after another and accomplishing more in just a few years than the rest accomplish in a lifetime. #Quote by Earl Nightingale
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Michael Port
#11. Be the guy people want to do things for. #Quote by Michael Port
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Pat Conroy
#12. My wound is geography. It is also my anchorage, my port of call. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Emily St. John Mandel
#13. Clark had always been fond of beautiful objects, and in his present state of mind, all objects were beautiful. He stood by the case and found himself moved by every object he saw there, by the human enterprise each object had required. Consider the snow globe. Consider the mind that invented those miniature storms, the factory worker who turned sheets of plastic into white flakes of snow, the hand that drew the plan for the miniature Severn City with its church steeple and city hall, the as**sembly-line worker who watched the globe glide past on a conveyer belt somewhere in China. Consider the white gloves on the hands of the woman who inserted the snow globes into boxes, to be packed into larger boxes, crates, shipping containers. Consider the card games played belowdecks in the evenings on the ship carrying the containers across the ocean, a hand stubbing out a cigarette in an overflowing ashtray, a haze of blue smoke in dim light, the cadences of a half dozen languages united by common profanities, the sailors' dreams of land and women, these men for whom the ocean was a gray-line horizon to be traversed in ships the size of overturned skyscrapers. Consider the signature on the shipping manifest when the ship reached port, a signature unlike any other on earth, the coffee cup in the hand of the driver delivering boxes to the distribution center, the secret hopes of the UPS man carrying boxes of snow globes from there to the Severn City Airport. Clark shook the globe and he #Quote by Emily St. John Mandel
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Gene Wolfe
#14. Do you not believe that you deserve to die painfully?" "By the revolutionary," I said, hoping that if I asked that death as a favor it would not be granted. "Yes, that would be fitting. But ... " And here he paused. The moment passed, then two. The first brass-backed fly of the new summer buzzed against the port. I wanted to crush it, to catch and release it, to shout at Master Palaemon to speak, to flee from the room; but I could do none of these things. I sat, instead, in the old wooden chair beside his table, feeling that I was already dead but still must die. #Quote by Gene Wolfe
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#15. When they left the bar, before parting ways in Port Authority, they stood on the corner of Forty-second Street and Seventh Avenue and continued talking; there were between them always an infinite number of subjects to be addressed and dissected, mulled over and mocked and revised. #Quote by Curtis Sittenfeld
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Giles Milton
#16. Setting sail from Tidore, his next port of call was the island of Celebes, where he found himself royally entertained by the King of Butung.... This island unknown to the English but Middleton (Captain David Middleton) enjoyed his stay here and found the King a curious fellow who was only to keen to entertain his guests with banquets and sweetmeats. Some meals were novel affairs; the ship's purser found himself eating in a room whose interior decor consisted entirely of rotting human heads, dangling from the ceiling. #Quote by Giles Milton
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Walker Percy
#17. He means that he hopes to find himself a girl, the rarest of rare pieces, and live the life of Rudolfo on the balcony, sitting around on the floor and experiencing soul-communications. I have my doubts. In the first place, he will defeat himself, jump ten miles ahead of himself, scare the wits out of some girl with his great choking silences, want her so desperately that by his own peculiar logic he can't have her; or having her, jump another ten miles beyond both of them and end by fleeing to the islands where, propped at the rail of his ship in some rancid port, he will ponder his own loneliness. #Quote by Walker Percy
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Jessie Ann Foley
#18. Maggie sipped her drink with the cat draped across her lap and the dog curled at her feet. The only sounds in the room were the crackling of the fire and Dan Sean's shallow snores. There were no CD's to play, no radio, no television. There was nothing. She was just sitting there in silence, getting drunk. It occurred to her that a person's first drunken experience shoud be in the basement of a friend's house, in a forest preserve, behind the bleachers of a football field. Certainly not in the company of a sleeping ninety-nine-year-old man. She giggled a little and wondered what Uncle Kevin would make of it. "Hot port?" he would say. "Very impressive, Mags. I would have thought you'd be more of a wine cooler type of girl. #Quote by Jessie Ann Foley
Kuibyshev Port quotes by George Washington Cable
#19. There came to port last Sunday night the queerest little craft, without an inch of rigging on; I looked and looked - and laughed. It seemed so curious that she should cross the unknown water, and moor herself within my room - my daughter! O my daughter! #Quote by George Washington Cable
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#20. So you're a sailor," the dwarf muttered.

Wyatt, who had been passing the time by playing with the feather in his hat, raised his head and nodded. "And you're a dwarf."

"What was your first clue?" The little fellow smirked. "What'd you do?"

Wyatt did not see any point in avoiding the question. Lies were told to protect one's future, and Wyatt had no illusions of his. "I'm responsible for destroying Tur Del Fur."

The dwarf sat up, interested. "Really? What part?"

"The whole city - well, technically all of Delgos, if you think about it. I mean, without the protection of Drumindor, the port is lost and the rest is helpless."

"You destroyed an entire country?"

"Pretty much." Wyatt nodded miserably, then sighed.

The dwarf continued to stare at him, now in fascination.

"How about you?" Wyatt asked. "What did you do?"

"I tried to steal a dagger."

Now it was Wyatt's turn to stare. "Really?"

"Sure, but you have to remember - I'm a dwarf. You'll probably get a slap on the wrist. After all, you only destroyed a country. I'll likely be ripped apart by wild dogs. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Isaac Asimov
#21. Well, besides, I've arranged with the computer that anyone who doesn't look and sound like one of us will be killed if he - or she - tries to board the ship. I've taken the liberty of explaining that to the Port Commander. I told him very politely that I would love to turn off that particular facility out of deference to the reputation that the Sayshell City Spaceport holds for absolute integrity and security - throughout the Galaxy, I said - but the ship is a new model and I didn't know how to turn it off."
"He didn't believe that, surely."
"Of course not! But he had to pretend he did, as otherwise he would have had no choice but to be insulted. And since there would be nothing he could do about that, being insulted would only lead to humiliation. And since he didn't want that, the simplest path to follow was to believe what I said."
"And that's another example of how people are?"
"Yes. You'll get used to this. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Richard Price
#22. Rocco drove up the West Side until they reached the Port Authority Bus Terminal. #Quote by Richard Price
Kuibyshev Port quotes by George Robertson, Baron Robertson Of Port Ellen
#23. Devolution will kill Nationalism stone dead #Quote by George Robertson, Baron Robertson Of Port Ellen
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Peter Singer
#24. If zoos are like arks, then rare animals are like passengers on a voyage of the damned, never to find a port that will let them dock or a land in which they can live in peace. The real solution, of course, is to preserve the wild nature that created these animals and has the power to sustain them. But if it is really true that we are inevitably moving towards a world in which mountain gorillas can survive only in zoos, then we must ask whether it is really better for them to live in artificial environments of our design than not to be born at all. #Quote by Peter Singer
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Kit Bond
#25. One of the most widespread myths about the deal is that the Administration is outsourcing the security of our ports to a company from the United Arab Emirates. #Quote by Kit Bond
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha
#26. I have the documents. Documents, proof, evidence, photograph, signature. One day you raise your right hand and you are American. They give you an American Pass port. The United States of America. Somewhere someone has taken my identity and replaced it with their photograph. The other one. Their signature their seals. Their own image. And you learn the executive branch the legislative branch and the third. Justice. Judicial branch. It makes the difference The rest is past. #Quote by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha
Kuibyshev Port quotes by David Ben-Gurion
#27. A Christian state should be established [in Lebanon], with its southern border on the Litani river. We will make an alliance with it. When we smash the Arab Legion's strength and bomb Amman, we will eliminate Transjordan too, and then Syria will fall. If Egypt still dares to fight on, we shall bomb Port Said, Alexandria and Cairo ... And in this fashion, we will end the war and settle our forefathers' account with Egypt, Assyria, and Aram. #Quote by David Ben-Gurion
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Michael Dirda
#28. Halloween isn't the only time for ghosts and ghost stories. In Victorian Britain, spooky winter's tales were part of the Christmas season, often told after dinner, over port or coffee. #Quote by Michael Dirda
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Duong Thu Huong
#29. Happiness always returns to port ... #Quote by Duong Thu Huong
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#30. A little inventor, that's it! ... of a little gimmick! ... just a little gimmick that's all! ... I don't fling out messages to the world! ... not me, no sir! I don't clutter up the air with my thoughts! not me! I don't get high on words, nor on port, nor on the flattery of youth! ... I don't cogitate for the universe. I'm just a little inventor, of a two-bit gimmick at that! and that won't last long! like everything else! like the swivel-stem collar button! I'm aware of my paltry importance! anything rather than ideas! ... I leave ideas to the flea merchants! all ideas! to the hucksters, the pimps, the confusion mongers! ... #Quote by Louis Ferdinand Celine
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Daniel Walker Howe
#31. Most long-distance travel and commerce went by water, which explains why most cities were seaports - Cincinnati on the Ohio River and St. Louis on the Mississippi being notable exceptions. To transport a ton of goods by wagon to a port city from thirty miles inland typically cost nine dollars in 1815; for the same price the goods could be shipped three thousand miles across the ocean. #Quote by Daniel Walker Howe
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Albert Pinkham Ryder
#32. Who hath seen the Phantom Ship,
Her lordly rise and lowly dip,
Careering o'er the lonesome main,
No port shall know her keel again ...
Ah, woe is in the awful sight,
The sailor finds there eternal night,
'Neath the waters he shall ever sleep,
And Ocean will the secret keep #Quote by Albert Pinkham Ryder
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Dennis Lehane
#33. You hear it most when politicians who live in places like Hyannis Port and Beacon Hill and Wellesley make decisions that affect people who live in Dorchester and Roxbury and Jamaica Plain, and then step back and say there isn't a war going on. There is a war going on. It's happening in playgrounds, not health clubs. It's fought on cement, not lawns. It's fought with pipes and bottles, and lately, automatic weapons. And as long as it doesn't push through the heavy oak doors where they fight with prep school educations and filibusters and two-martini lunches, it will never actually exist. #Quote by Dennis Lehane
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Nico Tortorella
#34. I worked at the Northlight Theater in Skokie, and the Mercury Theater on South Port. I actually did a show there for three years, called 'Over the Tavern.' #Quote by Nico Tortorella
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Derek Walcott
#35. This is Port of Spain to me, a city ideal in its commercial and human proportions, where a citizen is a walker and not a pedestrian, and this is how Athens may have been before it became a cultural echo. #Quote by Derek Walcott
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#36. From time to time the German U-boat commanders have tried their best to behave with humanity. We have seen them give good warning and also endeavour to help the crews to find their way to port. One German captain signalled to me personally the position of a British ship which he had just sunk, and urged that rescue should be sent. He signed his message "German Submarine". I was in some doubt at the time to what address I should direct a reply. However, he is now in our hands, and is treated with all consideration. Even #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Kuibyshev Port quotes by Ryan C. Gordon
#37. The simple fact is that code quality tends to improve as you move between platforms ... non-obvious bugs on Windows become VERY obvious in the Linux port and vice versa, and thus get fixed. So even the Windows gamers will win in all of this. #Quote by Ryan C. Gordon
