Moncrieff Coat quotes by Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa
#1. Tancredi and Angelica were passing in front of them at that moment, his gloved right hand on her waist, their outspread arms interlaced, their eyes gazing into each other's. The black of his tail coat, the pink of her dress, combining formed a kind of strange jewel. They were the most moving sight there, two young people in love dancing together, blind to each other's defects, deaf to the warnings of fate, deluding themselves that the whole course of their lives would be as smooth as the ballroom floor, unknowning actors made to play the parts of Juliet and Romeo by a director who had concealed the fact that tomb and poison were already in the script. Neither of them was good, each full of self-interest, swollen with secret aims; yet there was something sweet and touching about them both; those murky but ingenuous ambitions of theirs were obliterated by the words of jesting tenderness he was murmuring in her ear, by the scent of her hair, by the mutual clasp of those bodies of theirs destined to die. . .

For them death was purely an intellectual concept, a fact of knowledge as it were and no more, not an experience which pierced the marrow of their bones. Death, oh yes, it existed of course, but it was something that happened to others. The thought occurred to Don Fabrizio that it was ignorance of this supreme consolation that made the young feel sorrows much more sharply than the old; the latter are nearer the safety exit. #Quote by Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Stacey Jay
#2. Seven, ten, fifteen, eighteen years old and still there is nothing finer than a blank sheet of paper, the white promise that the world can be what I make it. A magical place, an adventurous place, a possible place. Erasers take away the mistakes. Another coat of paint to cover them up. Black and red and purple and blue. Always Blue. #Quote by Stacey Jay
Moncrieff Coat quotes by H.G. Wells
#3. These politicians impressed him as being the most shortsighted and sceptical men he had ever met. They lived in a little world that was bounded on the one side by "office" and on the other by the constituencies, and they seemed unable to imagine that it was not an eternal world. One tall man, he observed, in the year of grace 1941 was wearing a long frock-coat and a peculiar half-stiff collar reminiscent of that great parliamentary hand, Mr. Gladstone. They talked with one another about divisions; the government majority had dropped to twenty; and they talked about a scene in the House. The P.M.'s manners were becoming intolerable. Then with an air of relaxation they turned to Rud. The possibility of altering opinions in the constituencies seemed a very theoretical one to them. No doubt there were these waves of opinion in the country, and an intelligent parliamentary politician observed them and dodged about among them, but it was quite outside their technique to consider how the pressures of opinion could accumulate and be directed. #Quote by H.G. Wells
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Alain De Botton
#4. Looking at a photograph by Helen Levitt of four boys in a New York street, we are likely to find ourselves longing to comfort the grim-faced, stoic young man in the corner, whose mother perhaps only half an hour ago did up the many buttons of his handsome coat, and whose distressed expression evokes a pure form of agony. But how very different the same scene would have looked from just a metre away and another viewpoint. To the boy at the far right, what appears to matter most is a chance to take a closer look at his friend's toy. He has already lost any interest in the overdressed crybaby by the wall, whom he and his classmates have just slapped hard for a bit of fun, on this day as on most others. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Moncrieff Coat quotes by William Chapman
#5. Grab your coat, leave a note, and run away with me. #Quote by William Chapman
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#6. But the truth of his teaching would seem to be this: in our own person and fortune, we should be ready to accept and to pardon all; it is our cheek we are to turn, our coat that we are to give away to the man who has taken our cloak. But when another's face is buffeted, perhaps a little of the lion will become us best. That we are to suffer others to be injured, and stand by, is not conceivable and surely not desirable. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Jon Richardson
#7. I tend to wear a coat more for the fact that I worry if I'm going to get drunk, I'm going to get pickpocketed. And a coat goes over your pockets so it's harder for someone to get their hand in and steal your phone or wallet out of your pocket. It's an unnecessary level of thinking that may lessen the enjoyment you have out of life. #Quote by Jon Richardson
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Kate Lattey
#8. I unhooked the partition and pulled it back, revealing the donkey's shaggy coat and pot belly. She wouldn't win any beauty pageants, but she looked to be in fairly good health. I clipped up her lead rope and led her to the top of the ramp where she stopped and looked around, swivelling her huge ears like antennae. Skip and Forbes were in the furthest corner of their paddock, staring in horror at the truck and snorting loudly at each other, clearly not impressed with the newest addition to the family. "What #Quote by Kate Lattey
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Angela Carter
#9. Though I still turn up my coat-collar in a lonely way and am always looking at myself in mirrors, they're only habits and give no clue at all to my character, whatever that is. The most difficult performance in the world is acting naturally isn't it? Everything else is artful. #Quote by Angela Carter
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#10. Psychologists really aim to be scientists, white-coat stuff, with elaborate statistics, running experiments. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Jamie Ford
#11. Seeing isn't believing, feeling is believing." She reached out and patted his coat, finding the space above his heart, where the handbill was safely tucked away. "I feel you. #Quote by Jamie Ford
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Eric Overby
#12. Someone grabbed his coat
Again, he stops his journey
To be there with her #Quote by Eric Overby
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Robert Newton Peck
#13. Aren't you a Republican? Just about everyone is in the whole town of Learning."

"No, I'm not a Republican. And I'm not no Democrat. I'm not nothing."

"Why not?"

"Because I'm not allowed to vote."

"Me either. You have to be twenty-one to vote. I'm only twelve."

"Reckon I'm soon looking at sixty."

"Then why can't you vote? Is it because you're a Shaker?"

"No, it's account of I can't read or write. When a man cannot do these things, people think his head is weak. Even when he's proved his back is strong.

"Who decides?"

"Men who look at me and take me not for what I be. Men who only see my mark, my X, when I can't sign my name. They can't see how I true a beam to build our barn, or see that the rows of corn in my field are straight as fences. They just seem me walk the street in Learning in clothes made me by my own woman. They do not care that my coat is strudy and keeps me warm. They'll not care that I owe no debt and I am beholding to no man. #Quote by Robert Newton Peck
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Amit Abraham
#14. A coat of paint and a quote of words both make cosmetic differences. #Quote by Amit Abraham

Moncrieff Coat quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#16. I remember in The Conversation, they brought all these coats to me, and they said: Do you want him to look like a detective, Humphrey Bogart? Do you want him to look like a blah blah blah. I didn't know, and said the theme is 'privacy' and chose the plastic coat you could see through. So knowing the theme helps you make a decision when you're not sure which way to go. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Chris Stewart
#17. To get what we want we must be subtle as snakes; more deadly, more cunning, more patient, more mean. Think of the serpent, how it slithers through the garden. It's such a beautiful creature, slow and delicate, rarely seen but effective, low, and not loved, but gloriously efficient! The serpent is now our model; we must pattern our work after him. So go to your old friends and stand by their sides. Pretend you want to help them while whispering deceits in their ears. Only lie when you have to. Speak the truth when you can; for the truth, once it's twisted, is the most effective tool we have. Coat your lies with enough truth, and they will swallow it down.

Now listen to me, people, for this is the key - evil can be twisted into virtue if you phrase it just right. Any vice is acceptable if you cloak it as an issue of freedom. Any immorality is worth fighting for it you tell them they are fighting for choice, if you wrap it in the mantle of privacy and freedom. So take their moral agency and turn it on them. But be patient. . . be patient. . . it takes time to turn the truth upside down. #Quote by Chris Stewart
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Robyn Peterman
#18. I figured since I'd arrived in Crazytown, I may as well take off my coat and stay a while. #Quote by Robyn Peterman
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Andrew Lewis Conn
#19. Of course, most failures aren't so public in nature. Most failures happen quietly, unspectacularly, and their effects are cumulative. Most of the time failure doesn't reveal itself in a moment but wraps around you over a lifetime, adding heaviness to your step until one day you recognize you've been wearing failure on your face all along, that your failures have decorated your breast like the medallions of an army general's coat, that they've stripped away what's best in you, like rain peeling away the layers of a freshly painted house. #Quote by Andrew Lewis Conn

Moncrieff Coat quotes by J.D. Salinger
#20. That cat was a spy. You had to take a pot shot at it. It was a very clever German midget dressed up in a cheap fur coat. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Ggdavies
#21. in order to be free we have to shed that heavy coat... #Quote by Ggdavies
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Melissa Jensen
#22. He's right,you know," Edward was saying almost before I'd made it into my room. I had crept through the house unnecessarily. No one was home.
"Your assertions have lost a bit of their value these days, Mr. Willing."
"You know," he repeated.
I tossed my coat onto the bed. The stark black and white of my quilt was broken by a purple stain now, the result of a peaceful interlude with grape juice turning into a gentle wrestling match.The stain was the size of my palm and shaked like, I thought, an alligator. Alex insisted it was a map of Italy. Later, we'd dripped the rest of the juice onto the thick pages of my drawing pad, finding pictures in the splotches like the Rorschach inkblots used in psychology.
"Well," he'd said in response to my pagoda, antheater, and Viking, "verdict's in.You're nuts."
The pictures were tacked to my wall, unaccustomed spots of color. I'd penciled in our choices. Viking (E), pineapple (A). Lantern (E), cheese (A). Crown (E), birthday cake (A) were over my desk, over Edward.
I turned on my computer. It binged cheerfully at me. I had mail.

From: [email protected]
To: [email protected]
Date: December 15, 3:50 p.m.
Subect: Should you choose to accept...
Tuesday. I'll pick you up at 10:00 a.m. Ask no questions. Tell no one.
-Alex

"Ah, subterfuge" came from over the desk.
"Shut up, Edward," I said. #Quote by Melissa Jensen
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Ruth Emmie Lang
#23. Two weeks later, I wore a coat to school for the first time that year. Fall had made its presence known in the form of wet, earthy smells and shivering tree limbs shedding leaves in various shades of exotic cat. I walked to school that morning, listening to the crisp sounds that punctuated each one of my footfalls and the honks of geese flying overhead. I found it strange that there could be so much beauty in the death of all these living things. Maybe it was only beautiful because we knew they would be resurrected next spring. I don't think I would enjoy fall quite as much if I knew there was an eternal winter to follow. #Quote by Ruth Emmie Lang
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Mindy Kaling
#24. Who is this invisible antiterrorist? It's me, Mindy Kaling. I was hiding behind Cee Lo's fur coat, and no one saw me. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Kiersten White
#25. Lend stood up, shouldering his duffel bag, as I walked back into the living room. "Where do you think you're going?" I snatched his coat away and held it. He just got here. There was no way I was letting him go anywhere else.
"I happen to have very important things to do."
"What on earth is more important than watching Easton Heights??"
"Christmas shopping for you?"
I dropped the coat into his arms and opened the door. "Take your time."
"Glad to know I'll be missed."
"Have fun!" I leaned up and kissed him hard, then shoved him out and sat back on the couch with a sloppy smile on my face. "Best boyfriend ever."
"Shut. Up. Now." Arianna didn't move, eyes fixed on the television. A firm knock sounded on the door. "And tell Lend he can just walk in already!"
"Did you forget something?" I said as I opened the door, surprised to see a short black woman in a suit. And not Lend pretending to be one, either. #Quote by Kiersten White
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Margo Lanagan
#26. It was one thing not to want a husband, I realized; it was quite another not to need one for the roof over your head, for your meat and bread, for the shoes on your feet and the coat on your back. #Quote by Margo Lanagan
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#27. Remember our friend Mark?" Wylan winced. Let's say the mark is a tourist walking through the Barrel. He's heard it's a good place to get rolled, so he keeps patting his wallet, making sure it's there, congratulating himself on just how alert and cautious he;s being. No fool he. Of course every thime he pats his back pocket or the front of his coat, what is he doing? He's telliing every thief on the Stave exactly where he keeps his scrub."
"Saints," grumbled Nina. "I've probably done that."
"Everyone does," said Inej.
Jesper lifted a brow. "Not everyone."
"That's only because you never have anything in your wallet," Nina shot back.
"Mean."
"Factual."
"Facts are for the unimaginative," Jesper said with a dismissive wave. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Janisse Ray
#28. The moral of the story, Son," Pun would say, "is Don't take more on your heart than you can shake off on your heels."
Of all lessons, that one I never learned and I hope I never do. My heart daily grows new foliage, always adding people, picking up new heartaches like a wool coat collects cockleburs and beggar's-lice seeds. It gets fuller and fuller as I walk slow as a sloth, carrying all the pain Pun and Frank and so many others tried to walk from. Especially the pain of the lost forest. Sometimes there is no leaving, no looking westward for another promised land. We have to nail our shoes to the kitchen floor and unload the burden of our heart. We have to set to the task of repairing the damage done by and to us. #Quote by Janisse Ray
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Michael Braccia
#29. She undid the buttons of his coat, gently slipped her arms round his waist and pulled him tight against her body, then kissed him on the lips, so gently; she held onto him for what to David seemed like hours. #Quote by Michael Braccia
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Cassandra Clare
#30. The [coat] rack above his head like a javelin.
On the other side of the door was Jace. He blinked. "Is that a coatrack?"
Jordan slammed the coatrack down on the ground and sighed. "If you'd been a vampire, this would have been a lot more useful."
"Yes," said Jace. "Or, you know, just someone with a lot of coats. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Moncrieff Coat quotes by James McBride
#31. He had gotten a new set of clothes someplace, but they were only worse new versions of the same thing he wore before: black trousers, black vest, frock coat, stiff collar, withered, crumpled, and chewed at the edges. His boots was worse than ever, crumpled like pieces of text paper, curled at the toes. In other words, he looked normal, like his clothes was dying of thirst, and he himself was about to keel over out of plain ugliness. #Quote by James McBride
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Georgette Heyer
#32. How cross you are!' marvelled Miss Thane. 'I suppose when one reaches middle age it is difficult to sympathize with the follies of youth.'
Sir Tristram had walked over to the other side of the room to pick up his coat and hat, but this was too much for him, and he turned and said with undue emphasis: 'It may interest you to know, ma'am, that I am one-and-thirty years old, and not yet in my dotage!'
'Why, of course not!' said Miss Thane soothingly. 'You have only entered upon what one may call the sober time of life. Let me help you to put on your coat!'
'Thank you,' said Sir Tristram. 'Perhaps you would also like to give me the support of your arm as far as to the door? #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Carrie Snow
#33. Civilization is hideously fragile and there's not much between us and the horrors underneath, just about a coat of varnish. #Quote by Carrie Snow
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Libba Bray
#34. The land is old, the land is vast, he has no future, he has no past, his coat is sewn with many woes, he'll bring the dead, the King of Crows. #Quote by Libba Bray
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Francine Pascal
#35. Actually for a while Jessica had contemplated making a grand entrance wearing only the dress, thinking wickedly about how the sight of her cold, shivering body would prompt Nicholas to rush up and put his arms around her to warm her up. But evenings at this time of year were usually chilly, and she saw no reason to risk pneumonia just for a sympathy hug. She'd have to settle for throwing her coat off dramatically as she was being ushered into the Morrow mansion. #Quote by Francine Pascal
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#36. Since the moment when, at the sigh of his beloved and dying brother, Levin for the first time looked at the questions of life and death in the light of the new convictions, as he called them...he had been less horrified by death than by life without the least knowledge of whence it came, what it is for, why, and what it is. Organisms, their destruction, the indestructibility of matter, the law of the conservation of energy, development--the terms that had superseded these beliefs--were very useful for mental purposes; but they gave no guidance for life, and Levin suddenly felt like a person who has exchanged a thick fur coat fora muslin garment and who, being out in the frost for the first time, becomes clearly convinced, not by arguments, but with the whole of his being that he is as good as naked and that he must inevitably perish miserably. From that moment, without thinking about it and though he continued living as he had done heretofore, Levin never ceased to feel afraid of his ignorance...What astounded and upset him most in his connection, was that the majority of those in his set and of his age, did not see anything to be distressed about, and were quite contented and tranquil. So that, besides the principal question, Levin was tormented by other questions: were these people sincere? Were they not pretending? Or did they understand, possibly in some different or clearer way than he, the answers science gives to the questions he was concerned with? #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Diane Samuels
#37. I don't want to sew.
How else will the buttons get onto the coat? #Quote by Diane Samuels
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Alexa Donne
#38. Don't you want to know why I don't love Bianca?"
"Because you met her?" I said into the rough fabric of his coat, sure he couldn't hear me. He could, and he laughed.
"That's why I love you Stella. You have a good hear, but also a sharp tongue. The perfect combination. #Quote by Alexa Donne
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Jim Butcher
#39. You've never been a peasant in medieval France, Harry," Bob said. "Life was hard for those people. Never enough food, shelter, medicine. If you could give yourself a fur coat and the ability to go out and hunt your own meat, you would have jumped at the chance, too. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#40. WHEN A MAN WITH A LITTLE POINTED BEARD, robed in a white coat, came out into the waiting room of the renowned psychiatric clinic recently completed on a river bank outside Moscow, it was half-past one in the morning. Three hospital orderlies had their eyes glued to Ivan Nikolayevich, who was sitting on a couch. #Quote by Mikhail Bulgakov
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Ilka Chase
#41. Keeping your coat on indoors in Russia, no matter how public the place, is far worse than keeping your hat on as the flag goes by. It is worse than going into a Catholic church in Spain with your upper arms bare. It is worse than telling a mother her baby bores you. #Quote by Ilka Chase
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Dave Spikey
#42. We were having tea with my mother-in-law the other day and out of the blue she said, "I've decided I want to be cremated." I said, "Alright, get your coat." #Quote by Dave Spikey
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Sadie Jones
#43. In England, rain was thin and cold, and made you hunch up inside your coat, walking home from the bus stop. In Jamaica, it was wide and thick and invited you to step into it, and see how wet you could get, and be thrilled that it was warmer than the sea and warmer than your skin; it was abandon. #Quote by Sadie Jones
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Tessa Dare
#44. After all," she said, her eyes meeting his, "it's not as though you lack sufficient charm to woo ladies. And you're certainly handsome enough, in your own way."
She bent her head again. "Oh, stop looking s smug. I'm not flattering you, I'm merely stating facts. Privateering was not your only profitable course of action. You might have married, if you'd wished to."
"Ah, but there's the snag, you see. I didn't wish to."
She picked up a brush and tapped it against her palette. "No, you didn't. You wished to be at sea. You wished to go adventuring, to seize sixty ships in the name of the Crown and pursue countless women on four continents. That's why you sold your land, Mr. Grayson. Because it's what you wanted to do. The profit was incidental."
Gray tugged at the cuff of his coat sleeve. It unnerved him, how easily she stared down these truths he'd avoided looking in the eye for years. So now he was worse than a thief. He was a selfish, lying thief. And still she sat with him, flirted with him, called him "charming" and "handsome enough." How much darkness did the girl need to uncover before she finally turned away?
"And what about you, Miss Turner?" He leaned forward in his chair. "Why are you here, bound for the West Indies to work as a governess? You, too, might have married. You come from quality; so much is clear. And even if you'd no dowry, sweetheart…" He waited for her to look up. "Yours is the kind of beauty that brings men to their knees."
#Quote by Tessa Dare
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Joseph Brodsky
#45. I must admit that I feel somewhat uneasy talking about these things: because turning or not turning that other cheek is, after all, an extremely intimate affair. The encounter always occurs on a one-to-one basis. It's always your skin, your coat and cloak, and it is your limbs that will have to do the walking. To advise, let alone to urge, anyone about the use of these properties is, if not entirely wrong, indecent. All I aspire to do here is to erase from your minds a cliché that harmed so many and yielded so little. I also would like to instill in you the idea that as long as you have your skin, coat, cloak, and limbs, you are not yet defeated, whatever the odds are. #Quote by Joseph Brodsky
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Anne Rice
#46. Elegant presents soon followed. Leather luggage for Jesse's travels and a lovely mink-lined coat to keep her warm in the 'abominable British weather.' It is a country 'only a Druid could love,' Maharet wrote. #Quote by Anne Rice
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Seanan McGuire
#47. Oh, shit." It wasn't the most intelligent thing that Sloane had ever said, but considering the circumstances, she thought she was doing pretty well. The pretty Indian woman in the lab coat who had collapsed into her arms didn't react to the profanity. Sloane gave her an experimental shake. She didn't react to that either, and so Sloane shook her harder, hoping that maybe that would do something. All it did was cause the strange woman's arms and head to flop around until Sloane started to worry about accidentally breaking her neck. The paperwork for that would be, well, murder. Not to be crass or anything. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Moncrieff Coat quotes by Neil Gaiman
#48. Wednesday walked out into the firelight, a big old man with a glass eye in a brown suit and an old Armani coat. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
