Rounds quotes by Kate Forsyth
#13. Huge tureens of puréed chestnut soup with truffles were carried in and served to each guest, filling the air with a rich earthy small. Then the servants brought in ballotine of pheasant, served with cold lobster in aspic and deep-sea oysters brought up the river by boat that morning. Our own foie gras on tiny rounds of bread was followed by 'margret de canard,' the breast meat of force-fed ducks, roasted with small home-grown pears and Armagnac. There was a white-bean cassoulet with wild hare, a haunch of venison cooked in cinnamon and wine, eel pie, and a salad of leaves and flowers from the garden, dressed in olive oil and lemon. #Quote by Kate Forsyth
Rounds quotes by Cho Se-Hui
#14. He said that every day without a fail when he commuted on the packed buses he saw city garbage trucks leaving on their rounds several at a time. Shin-ae understands what her husband is saying.

#16. I only wanted to tell you that this was the wonderful time for you. Don't let any of it go by without enjoying it. There won't be any more merry-go-rounds. No more cotton candy. No more band concerts. I only wanted to tell you, Martin, that this is the wonderful time. Now! Here! That's all. That's all I wanted to tell you. #Quote by Rod Serling

Rounds quotes by Rosita Forbes

Rounds quotes by Stuart Rose
#32. When my mother died, my father was in a crisis, my sister was in a crisis, everyone was in a crisis. I went round the night my mother was lying in the kitchen, and I organised everything, from the undertaker to the funeral ... I looked after everybody, I sorted it all out and I've done so ever since. #Quote by Stuart Rose
Rounds quotes by Dante Alighieri
#33. To get back up to the shining world from there
My guide and I went into that hidden tunnel,
And Following its path, we took no care
To rest, but climbed: he first, then I-so far,
through a round aperture I saw appear
Some of the beautiful things that Heaven bears,
Where we came forth, and once more saw the stars. #Quote by Dante Alighieri
Rounds quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#34. Follow your inclinations with due regard to the policeman round the corner. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Rounds quotes by Bohumil Hrabal
#35. And so everything I see in this world, it all moves backward and forward at the same time, like a black-smith's bellows, like everything in my press, turning into its opposite at the command of the red and green buttons, and that's what makes the world go round. #Quote by Bohumil Hrabal
Rounds quotes by Jedediah McClure
#36. A few years ago, a couple of young men from my church came to our home for dinner. During the course of the dinner, the conversation turned from religion to various world mythologies and we began to play the game of 'Name That Character." To play this game, you pick a category such as famous actors, superheroes or historical characters. In turn, each person describes events in a famous character's life while everyone else tries to guess who the character is. Strategically you try to describe the deeds of a character in such a way that it might fit any number of characters in that category. After three guesses, if no one knows who your character is, then you win.

Choosing the category of Bible Characters, we played a couple of fairly easy rounds with the typical figures, then it was my turn. Now, knowing these well meaning young men had very little religious experience or understanding outside of their own religion, I posed a trick question. I said, "Now my character may seem obvious, but please wait until the end of my description to answer." I took a long breath for dramatic effect, and began, "My character was the son of the King of Heaven and a mortal woman." Immediately both young men smiled knowingly, but I raised a finger asking them to wait to give their responses.

I continued, "While he was just a baby, a jealous rival attempted to kill him and he was forced into hiding for several years. As he grew older, he developed amazing powers. Among these #Quote by Jedediah McClure
Rounds quotes by Kevin Hearne
#37. Wooo!' he said, slamming his shot glass down and coughing a bit. 'That's good stuff.'
I agreed heartily. 'Shall we do another one?' I asked.
'Oh no,' Jesus said quietly, his eyes growing round. 'This is one of those situations where I have to stop and ask myself, what would I do? #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Rounds quotes by Richard Brautigan
#38. He looked as if he'd got a lot of pleasure out of going ten rounds with your grandmother and making sure she went the whole distance. #Quote by Richard Brautigan
Rounds quotes by Jeffrey Thomas
#39. A screenplay adaptation of my 'Punktown' novel 'Health Agent' has been making the rounds. The screenplay was written by my friend, singer/songwriter Walter Egan of 'Magnet & Steel' fame! #Quote by Jeffrey Thomas
Rounds quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#40. It has happened to all of us. One day, one ordinary day when we imagine we're making our routine rounds in the world with ticket stubs and tobacco shreds in our pockets, our heads full of news items, traffic noise, troublesome monologues, we suddenly realize we are already someplace else, that we are not actually where our feet have taken us.
I had long slipped away, I had melted into a color paler than pale when I stood behind the windowpane made of ice. If you are to come down to earth, or any kind of reality, you must then hold a girl, that girl, hold on to her and win her love. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Rounds quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#41. I must remind you that our credulity is not to be measured by the truth of the things we believe. When men believed that the earthwas flat, they were not credulous: they were using their common sense, and, if asked to prove that the earth was flat, would have said simply, "Look at it." Those who refuse to believe that it is round are exercising a wholesome skepticism. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Rounds quotes by Sean Michael
#42. The crusts, or at least what he assumed was crusts, were already rolled out flat rounds.
"How many do we need?" Because he could eat one of these all on his own.
"One for Uncle Slayde and Jenny. One for me and Maggie. One for ... Who do you share with?"
"I think I can probably eat the whole thing by myself." He patted his belly. "What do you think?"
Christian looked at him. "You could prob'ly eat a whole elephant. #Quote by Sean Michael
Rounds quotes by Ron Perlman
#43. I just think that there are those people that their resolve is strengthened by what it is that's keeping them down, and there are some people that will buckle under it. You never know which one is which until you get into the eighth or ninth round of the fight. #Quote by Ron Perlman
Rounds quotes by Janet Frame
#44. Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime. #Quote by Janet Frame
Rounds quotes by Joanna Southcott
#45. Another night I dreamed I heard heavenly music sounding in my ears, and a flock of sheep was gathering round it. When the music ceased, the sheep leaped for joy, and ran together, shaking their heads; and one shook his head almost off, and seemed to have nothing but ears. #Quote by Joanna Southcott
Rounds quotes by Confucius
#46. In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself. #Quote by Confucius
Rounds quotes by Stewart Cink
#47. You play the golf course just like you played it in your practice rounds and you stick to your game plan and just try to get whatever you can out of it. #Quote by Stewart Cink
Rounds quotes by C.S. Lewis
#48. And now, what does it all matter? It matters more than anything else in the world. The whole dance, or drama, or pattern of this three-Personal life is to be played out in each one of us: or (putting it the other way round) each one of us has got to enter that pattern, take his place in that dance. There is no other way to the happiness for which we were made. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Rounds quotes by Gillian Flynn
#49. The ones who are not soul-mated – the ones who have settled – are even more dismissive of my singleness: It's not that hard to find someone to marry, they say. No relationship is perfect, they say – they, who make do with dutiful sex and gassy bedtime rituals, who settle for TV as conversation, who believe that husbandly capitulation – yes, honey, okay, honey – is the same as concord. He's doing what you tell him to do because he doesn't care enough to argue, I think. Your petty demands simply make him feel superior, or resentful, and someday he will fuck his pretty, young coworker who asks nothing of him, and you will actually be shocked.

Give me a man with a little fight in him, a man who calls me on my bullshit. (But who also kind of likes my bullshit.) And yet: Don't land me in one of those relationships where we're always pecking at each other, disguising insults as jokes, rolling our eyes and 'playfully' scrapping in front of our friends, hoping to lure them to our side of an argument they could not care less about. Those awful if only relationships: This marriage would be great if only… and you sense the if only list is a lot longer than either of them realizes.

So I know I am right not to settle, but it doesn't make me feel better as my friends pair off and I stay home on Friday night with a bottle of wine and make myself an extravagant meal and tell myself, This is perfect, as if I'm the one dating me. As I go to endless rounds of parties and b #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Rounds quotes by William MacAskill
#50. One additional unit of income can do a hundred times as much to the benefit the extreme poor as it can to benefit you or I [earning the typical US wage of $28,000 or £18,000 per year]. [I]t's not often you have two options, one of which is a hundred times better than the other. Imagine a happy hour where you could either buy yourself a beet for $5 or buy someone else a beer for 5¢. If that were the case, we'd probably be pretty generous – next round's on me! But that's effectively the situation we're in all the time. It's like a 99% off sale, or buy one, get ninety-nine free. It might be the most amazing deal you'll see in your life. #Quote by William MacAskill
Rounds quotes by Richard Madeley
#51. IT'S funny. It doesn't work the other way round ! #Quote by Richard Madeley
Rounds quotes by Merritt A. Edson
#52. One hundred rounds do not constitute fire power. One hit constitutes fire power. #Quote by Merritt A. Edson
Rounds quotes by Gunplay
#53. I'm at the round table, where your seat at?
Where your plate, where your lobster, where your sea bass? #Quote by Gunplay
Rounds quotes by Bryan Procter
#54. All round the room my silent servants wait, My friends in every season, bright and dim. #Quote by Bryan Procter
Rounds quotes by Elizabeth May
#55. My cheeks are hot when he stalks right up to me, eyes narrowed. Pinched between his bloody fingers is a piece of scrap metal laced with seilgflùr from the blunderbuss - a shot that would have killed any other faery.

"Really?" he says.

"You were traipsing around in a low-visibility field while enemy fae are afoot," I say defensively, hoping he can't tell I'm blushing. "What is wrong with you?"

Aithinne snickers and Kiaran casts her a sharp glance. "It's not funny."

His sister tries to hold back a laugh, but doesn't quite succeed. "I'm sorry," she says. "But you just . . . I've never seen you look like such a complete mess."

Kiaran studies her with a narrowed gaze. "And both of you look like you've gone three rounds with a roving band of feral cats. I'd say we're even."

"Even? Oh, please." Aithinne ticks off each finger. "Thus far the Falconer and I escaped through a forest of spiked trees, fought off the mara, fled from Lonnrach's soldiers, and defeated two mortair. You were shot by accident with some weapon composed of a wooden stick with a barrel on the end - "

"A blunderbuss," I correct helpfully. Kiaran gives me a pointed look that says, Whose side are you on?

" - so I'd say I win this round." She finishes with the sort of arrogant grin that makes it very clear that this must be an ongoing competition.

Sibling rivalry, it seems, is not just for humans.
If Kiaran's glare #Quote by Elizabeth May

#56. I'm quite a tuxedo junkie, I collect them all year round. #Quote by Zac Posen
Rounds quotes by Lynne Truss
#57. Brackets come in various shapes, types and names:
1 round brackets (which we call brackets, and the Americans call parentheses)
2 square brackets [which we call square brackets, and the Americans call brackets] #Quote by Lynne Truss
Rounds quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#58. I used to analyze myself down to the last thread, used to compare myself with others, recalled all the smallest glances, smiles and words of those to whom I'd tried to be frank, interpreted everything in a bad light, laughed viciously at my attempts 'to be like the rest' –and suddenly, in the midst of my laughing, I'd give way to sadness, fall into ludicrous despondency and once again start the whole process all over again – in short, I went round and round like a squirrel on a wheel. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Rounds quotes by Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie
#59. People seem to think themselves in some ways superior to heaven itself, when they complain of the sorrow and want round about them. And yet it is not the devil for certain who puts pity into their hearts. #Quote by Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie
Rounds quotes by Ralph Robert Moore
#60. I loved all the Hardy Boy books. Once I collected my paperboy money each Friday I'd walk into town, make the rounds of all the local thrift shops (where you could buy a used hardback for a quarter.) I'd always get excited swinging open the front cover of a newly discovered book in the series. Let's solve a mystery! And investigate the long-abandoned water tower north of town. They were a lot of fun. And science fiction, although these were paperbacks. I stopped going to church when I was about ten. I'd get dressed and go out the front door telling my mom I was going to church, but I'd have a science fiction paperback jammed in the back pocket of my trousers. Once I got near the church (St. Mary's on Greenwich Avenue), I'd veer down a side street, pull out my book, and stumble along the sidewalks for an hour, visiting another planet, sometimes another galaxy. My mother eventually found out about my deception - a friend told her she had spotted me walking, reading, when I was supposed to be at mass. I explained to my mother I didn't want to attend church anymore, and she accepted that. If it made her sad, she never showed me. She was actually an incredibly good mother, which I realize more and more as I age. #Quote by Ralph Robert Moore
Rounds quotes by Mike McCormack
#61. What no tourist bumf will tell you is that this inlet is suffused with an atmosphere of ineffable sadness. Partly a trick of the light and climatic factors, partly also the lingering residue of an historical tragedy which still resonates through rock and water down seven generations of fretful commemorative attempts and dissonant historical hermeneutics. Now think of grey shading towards gunmetal across an achromatic spectrum; think also of turbid cumulus clouds pouring down five centimeters of rainfall above the national average and you have some idea of the light reflected within the walls of this inlet. This is the type of light which lends itself to vitamin D deficiency, baseline serotonin levels, spluttering neurotransmitters and mild but by no means notional depression. It is the type of light wherein ghosts go their rounds at all hours of the day. #Quote by Mike McCormack
Rounds quotes by John Niven
#62. We live in a crazily youth-orientated world nowadays. It's a trickle-down thing. We see pictures of lithe, attractive celebrity couples such as Brad and Angelina or the Beckhams cavorting around, covered in tattoos, stomachs as flat as the singing in early 'X Factor' rounds. #Quote by John Niven
Rounds quotes by David Brin
#63. Above all, TRIBES is fun, and even kind of sexy ... in that every round features an Opportunity for Reproduction, which is the main aim of the game, as it is in most of Nature. #Quote by David Brin
Rounds quotes by Paullina Simons
#64. What was she thinking?" muttered Alexander, closing his eyes and imagining his Tania.
"She was determined. It was like some kind of a personal crusade with her," Ina said. "She gave the doctor a liter of blood for you - "
"Where did she get it from?"
"Herself, of course." Ina smiled. "Lucky for you, Major, our Nurse Metanova is a universal donor."
Of course she is, thought Alexander, keeping his eyes tightly shut.
Ina continued. "The doctor told her she couldn't give any more, and she said a liter wasn't enough, and he said, 'Yes, but you don't have more to give,' and she said, 'I'll make more,' and he said, 'No,' and she said, 'Yes,' and in four hours, she gave him another half-liter of blood."
Alexander lay on his stomach and listened intently while Ina wrapped fresh gauze on his wound.
He was barely breathing.
"The doctor told her, 'Tania, you're wasting your time. Look at his burn. It's going to get infected.' There wasn't enough penicillin to give to you, especially since your blood count was so
low." Alexander heard Ina chuckle in disbelief. "So I'm making my rounds late that night, and who do I find next to your bed? Tatiana. She's sitting with a syringe in her arm, hooked up to a
catheter, and I watch her, and I swear to God, you won't believe it when I tell you, Major, but I see that the catheter is attached to the entry drip in your IV." Ina's eyes bulged. "I watch her

#65. Taking all the round of professions and occupations, you will find that every man is the worse for being poor; and the doctor is a specially dangerous man when poor. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Rounds quotes by John Milton
#66. Straight mine eye hath caught new pleasures Whilst the landscape round it measures, Russet lawns and fallows grey, Where the nibbling flocks do stray, Mountains on whose barren breast The labouring clouds do often rest; Meadows trim with daisies pied, Shallow brooks, and rivers wide. #Quote by John Milton
Rounds quotes by Erwin Rommel
#67. In a man-to-man fight, the winner is he who has one more round in his magazine. #Quote by Erwin Rommel
Rounds quotes by Steven Martin
#68. Things got used until they were useless and then they were tossed into a heap in a vacant lot that served as the neighborhood dump. There discarded items sat until the scavengers with wooden pushcarts made their rounds, picking through the piles. Anything recyclable - bottles, wire, any kind of scrap - was carted away to a vast and stinking shantytown in another part of the city where there resided what seemed to be a caste of trash pickers who made a living from recycling Manila's refuse. #Quote by Steven Martin
Rounds quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#69. These trifles are collected and republished chiefly with a view to their redemption from the many improvements to which they have been subjected while going at random the "rounds of the press." I am naturally anxious that what I have written should circulate as I wrote it, if it circulate at all. In defence of my own taste, nevertheless, it is incumbent upon me to say that I think nothing in this volume of much value to the public, or very creditable to myself. Events not to be controlled have prevented me from making, at any time, any serious effort in what, under happier circumstances, would have been the field of my choice. With me poetry has been not a purpose, but a passion; and the passions should be held in reverence: they must not - they cannot at will be excited, with an eye to the paltry compensations, or the more paltry commendations, of mankind. 1845. E. A. P. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Rounds quotes by Willie The Kid
#70. The colder the weather, the bigger the gun
Got to rock a lot of clothes if you tryina hide one
In June it's .22's, February it's fifths
But all year round, it's 616. #Quote by Willie The Kid
Rounds quotes by Merrill Markoe
#71. Since - in my belief system - we each get only one go-round here on planet Earth, it is the task of the writer to interpret, examine, and reflect on the specifics of their one and only life experience. #Quote by Merrill Markoe
Rounds quotes by James Joseph Sylvester
#72. If I were asked to name, in one word, the pole star round which the mathematical firmament revolves, the central idea which pervades the whole corpus of mathematical doctrine, I should point to Continuity as contained in our notions of space, and say, it is this, it is this! #Quote by James Joseph Sylvester
Rounds quotes by John Lubbock
#73. Happy indeed is the naturalist: to him the seasons come round like old friends; to him the birds sing: as he walks along, the flowers stretch out from the hedges, or look up from the ground, and as each year fades away, he looks back on a fresh store of happy memories. #Quote by John Lubbock
Rounds quotes by Norm Applegate
#74. He brought the Glock up to shoulder height. He had one up the snout giving him fourteen rounds of influence. #Quote by Norm Applegate
Rounds quotes by Katy Perry
#75. Be yourself, that's what makes the world go round! #Quote by Katy Perry
Rounds quotes by Rajneesh
#76. Eat, drink, and be merry is perfectly good in itself; nothing is wrong in it. But it is not enough. Soon you will get tired of it. One cannot just go on eating, drinking, and merrying. Soon the merry-go-round turns into a sorry-go-round - because it is repetitive. Only a very mediocre mind can go on being happy with it. #Quote by Rajneesh
Rounds quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#77. I've had a lot of majors where I didn't play well until the last round. Keep yourself in contention; that's the name of the game. I usually ended up shooting a good round and all of a sudden, somehow, I won. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Rounds quotes by Terry Pratchett
#78. Interesting thing, these fellows never seem to get the idea of perspective-'
The Bursar thought, or received the thought: that's because perspective is a lie. If I know a pond is round then why should I draw it oval? I will draw it round because round is true. Why should my brush lie to you just because my eye lies to me? #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Rounds quotes by Margery Allingham
#79. But there are roughly two sorts of informed people, aren't there? People who start off right by observing the pitfalls and mistakes and going round them, and the people who fall into them and get out and know they're there because of that. They both come to the same conclusions but they don't have quite the same point of view. #Quote by Margery Allingham
Rounds quotes by Ilona Andrews
#80. I gave him my Order smile: sweet grin, hard eyes, reached over to my passenger seat, and pulled out my submachine gun. About twenty-seven inches long, the HK was my favorite toy for close-quarters combat. The rider's eyes went wide.
"This is an HK UMP submachine gun. Renowned for its stopping power and reliability. Cyclic rate of fire: eight hundred rounds per minute. That means I can empty this thirty-round clip into you in less than three seconds. At this range, I'll cut you in half." It wasn't strictly true but it sounded good. "You see what it says on the barrel?"
On the barrel, pretty white letters spelled out PARTY STARTER. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Rounds quotes by Mahendra Ramsinghani
#81. A good portfolio manager knows which companies to keep and which ones to let go. Many a GP has struggled with portfolio companies that cannot meet their value-creation milestones, or raise additional follow-on rounds of capital, or generate target returns in a time span of, say, five to seven years. The faster you recognize those losses, the better it is."
-
"As David Cowan says, "Just focus on your top five - the rest is distraction." The harder part of the investor's discipline is to know when to quit."
-
"You have to constantly scan all of those things and be willing to adjust your own sense of what's a reasonable outcome and move the company into a position where it has the maximum chance to succeed. "
-
"Time is your enemy: Portfolio companies always take twice as much capital and twice as long to exit. Early-stage companies rarely meet milestones as planned and always burn cash faster than anticipated. #Quote by Mahendra Ramsinghani
Rounds quotes by Fred Rodell
#82. The reason the lawyers lead the line to the guillotine or the firing squad is that, while law is supposed to be a device to serve society, a civilized way of helping the wheels go round without too much friction, it is pretty hard to find a group less concerned with serving society and more concerned with serving themselves than the lawyers. #Quote by Fred Rodell
Rounds quotes by Adele Faber
#83. Take two kids in competition for their parents' love and attention. Add to that the envy that one child feels for the accomplishments of the other; the resentment that each child feels for the privileges of the other; the personal frustrations that they don't dare let out on anyone else but a brother or sister, and it's not hard to understand why in families across the land, the sibling relationship contains enough emotional dynamite to set off rounds of daily explosions. #Quote by Adele Faber
Rounds quotes by Slavisa Pavlovic
#84. We play in twelve rounds. The present against me. I lost the previous eleven. Defeat after defeat. And now I am waiting for the last round. The key round. The fact that I did not fall so far gives me more strength. It's only now that I hope to win, by knock-out, because the fate is too tired from punches that it will eventually fall by itself. And maybe it will fall on knees when it realizes that I am not going to fall. #Quote by Slavisa Pavlovic
Rounds quotes by Camilo Villegas
#85. I always save a few special outfits for the final rounds of a tournament, because they put me in a more positive mindset and I then make better decisions. #Quote by Camilo Villegas
Rounds quotes by George Eliot
#86. It is in these acts called trivialities that the seeds of joy are forever wasted until men and women look round with haggard faces at the devastation their own waste has made and say the earth bears no harvest of sweetness - calling their denial knowledge. #Quote by George Eliot
Rounds quotes by Thomas Guthrie
#87. The mental powers acquire their full robustness when the cheek loses its ruddy hue, and the limbs their elastic step; and pale thought sits on manly brows, and the watchman, as he walks his rounds, sees the student's lamp burning far into the silent night. #Quote by Thomas Guthrie
Rounds quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#88. By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.
The foe long since in silence slept;
Alike the conqueror silent sleeps;
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.
On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone;
That memory may their deed redeem,
When, like our sires, our sons are gone.
Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Rounds quotes by Margaret Atwood
#89. The weapons that were once outside sharpening themselves on war are now indoors there, in the fortress, fragile in glass cases; Why is it (I'm thinking of the careful moulding round the stonework archways) that in this time, such elaborate defences keep things that are no longer (much) worth defending? #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Rounds quotes by Will Rogers
#90. In the Middle West now you got to put a brand on your soil, then in the Spring go on a round-up looking for it. #Quote by Will Rogers
Rounds quotes by Stephen King
#91. Life was such a wheel that no man could stand upon it for long. And it always, at the end, came round to the same place again. #Quote by Stephen King
Rounds quotes by Toby Keith
#92. Grandpappy told my pappy, back in my day son, a man had to answer for the wicked he done. Take all the rope in Texas, find a tall oak tree, round up all the bad boys, and hang them in the streets for all the people to see. #Quote by Toby Keith
Rounds quotes by Dan Ephron
#93. But he also felt a stitch of hesitation. Did God put him in the same room with Rabin so that he could eliminate the Israeli leader and his Oslo process? Or would Amir be imposing his own plan on God? He thought about the bullets in his magazine, the hollow points and the regular rounds. Then he turned his gaze back to Rabin and watched him leave the hall; Amir had missed his chance. But he gleaned valuable information. Rabin was hardly protected. If protests didn't stop the peace process, killing him might be a viable alternative. At home, he related the events to Hagai. It was too early, he told his brother. He needed to build his inner readiness. #Quote by Dan Ephron
Rounds quotes by Walt Whitman
#94. I accept Time absolutely.
It alone is without flaw,
It alone rounds and completes all,
That mystic baffling wonder. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Rounds quotes by John M. Ford
#95. The Human stared, then laughed shortly. "I suppose I have gone on a bit. Tell your people that not all Humans want their territory, and endless rounds of gunboat diplomacy and saber-rattling."
[...]
Krenn said, "If you wish, I will take that message. But there is something I ought to tell you. We have a word, komerex: your translator has probably told you it means 'Empire,' but what it means truly is 'the structure that grows.' It has an opposite, khesterex: 'the structure that dies.' We are taught - by those you wish to receive your story - that there are no other cultures than these. And in my years as a Captain, I have seen nothing to indicate that my teaching was wrong. There are only Empires…and kuve." Krenn saw Grandisson's long jaw go slack; he knew how the Human's machine had translated the last word. "And this is the change you say you wish to make in yourselves….
"So, yes, Mr. Grandisson, if you wish I will take your message. But I tell you now: there are none Klingon who will believe it. #Quote by John M. Ford
Rounds quotes by Dan Jenkins
#96. I am among those who firmly believe that a round of golf should not take more than three and a half hours, four at most. Anything longer than that is not a round of golf, it's life in Albania. #Quote by Dan Jenkins
Rounds quotes by Carolyn Parkhurst
#97. How can it be, I wondered, that we can be lying in bed next to a person we love wholly and helplessly, a person we love more than our own breath, and still ache to think of the one who caused us pain all those years ago? It's the betrayal of this second heart of ours, its flesh tied off like a fingertip twined tightly round with a single hair, blue-tinged from lack of blood. The shameful squeeze of it. #Quote by Carolyn Parkhurst
Rounds quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#98. Very often the test of one's allegiance to a cause or to a people is precisely the willingness to stay the course when things are boring, to run the risk of repeating an old argument just one more time, or of going one more round with a hostile or (much worse) indifferent audience. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Rounds quotes by Ernest Rutherford
#99. Splitting the atom is like trying to shoot a gnat in the Albert Hall at night and using ten million rounds of ammunition on the off chance of getting it. That should convince you that the atom will always be a sink of energy and never a reservoir of energy. #Quote by Ernest Rutherford
Rounds quotes by Richard Dawkins
#100. Evolution is a theory in a special philosophical sense of science, but in terms of ordinary laymen's use of language, it's a fact, .. Evolution is a fact in the same sense that it's a fact that the Earth is round and not flat, [that] the Earth goes round the Sun. Both those are also theories, but they're theories that have never been disproved and never will be disproved. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Rounds quotes by Brett Hull
#101. I'm very impatient. I am. That's the bane of my game. I don't think about what I'm going to do - I just go hit it, I don't stop to wait and think. Costs me two shots a round. #Quote by Brett Hull
Rounds quotes by George MacDonald
#102. Now and then, when I look round on my books, they seem to waver as if a wind rippled their solid mass, and another world were about to break through. #Quote by George MacDonald
Rounds quotes by Golda Meir
#103. A story once went the rounds of Israel to the effect that Ben-Gurion described me as 'the only man' in his cabinet. What amused me about is that he (or whoever invented the story) thought that this was the greatest compliment that could be paid to a woman. I very much doubt that any man would have been flattered if I had said about him that he was the only woman in the government! #Quote by Golda Meir
Rounds quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#104. In the long, sleepless watches of the night, A gentle face the face of one long dead Looks at me from the wall, where round its head The night-lamp casts a halo of pale light. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Rounds quotes by Tommy Lasorda
#105. I don't like the pitch count! How are you gonna develop your arm? If you're a track man you say, "Hey, you can't run too much." Or if you're a boxer you say, "Hey, you can only box three rounds." It's not right! #Quote by Tommy Lasorda
Rounds quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#106. There comes a point in life where each one of us who survives begins to feel like a ghost that has forgotten to die at the right time, and certainly most of us were more amusing when we were young. It seems that age folds the heart in on itself. Some of us walk detached, dreaming on the past, and some of us realize that we have lost the trick of standing in the sun. For many of us the thought of the future is a cause for irritation rather than optimism, as if we have had enough of new things, and wish only for the long sleep that rounds the edges of our lives #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Rounds quotes by Nick Hornby
#107. Books are, let's face it, better than everything else. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Rounds quotes by Toni Cade Bambara
#108. I am one beautiful and powerful son of a bitch,' he told himself. 'Smart as a whip, respected, prosperous, beloved and valuable. I have the right to be healthy, happy and rich, for I am the baddest player in this arena or any other. I love myself more than I love money and pretty women and fine clothes. I love myself more than I love neat gardens and healthy babies and a good gospel choir. I love myself as I love The Law. I love myself in error and in correctness, waking or sleeping, sneezing, tipsy, or fabulously brilliant I love myself doing the books or sitting down to a good game of poker. I love myself making love expertly, or tenderly and shyly, or clumsily and inept. I love myself as I love The Master's Mind,' he continued his litany, having long ago stumbled upon the prime principle as a player--that self-love produces the gods and the gods are genius. It took genius to run the Southwest Community Infirmary. So he made the rounds of his hospital the way he used to make the rounds of his houses to keep the tops spinning, reciting declarations of self-love. #Quote by Toni Cade Bambara
Rounds quotes by Samuel L. Jackson
#109. We need to change America's image round the world. America has lost some lustre in terms of how folks aspire to be like us. #Quote by Samuel L. Jackson
Rounds quotes by James Joyce
#110. Think you're escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home. #Quote by James Joyce
Rounds quotes by Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi
#111. The circle of knowledge commences close round a man and thence stretches out concentrically. #Quote by Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi
Rounds quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#112. When she was taken too bad she went off quite alone to the sea-shore, so that the customs officer, going his rounds, often found her lying flat on her face, crying on the shingle. Then, after her marriage, it went off, they say." "But with me," replied Emma, "it was after marriage that it began. #Quote by Gustave Flaubert
Rounds quotes by Christine Feehan
#113. What the hell was he shooting at? You? Or the birds?'
'He fired off a few rounds at me, both from here and back there.' Lev turned to indicate the spot where the assailant stood. 'Then he was shooting at the owls.'
'The ones that attacked him.' There was open skepticism in Jonas's voice.
'I don't carry spare owl feathers in my pocket,' Levi said. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Rounds quotes by Christine Brodien-Jones
#114. Kids in aprons appeared, putting tureens of vegetable soup on the tables and plates of boiled eggs, potatoes and lentils, bowls of endive-and-radish salad, small rounds of cheese and loaves of brown bread, all looking quite delicious, in Zoe's opinion. #Quote by Christine Brodien-Jones
Rounds quotes by Gerald Massey
#115. Not by appointment do we meet delight Or joy; they heed not our expectancy; But round some corner of the streets of life they of a sudden greet us with a smile. #Quote by Gerald Massey
Rounds quotes by Virginia Woolf
#116. What could be more serious than the love of man for woman, what more commanding, more impressive, bearing in its bosom the seeds of death; at the same time these lovers, these people entering into illusion glittering eyed, must be danced round with mockery, decorated with garlands. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Rounds quotes by Paco Ignacio Taibo II
#117. because we live in Mexico City, we make rounds with the spirits of Huitzilopochtli, #Quote by Paco Ignacio Taibo II
Rounds quotes by Errol Morris
#118. If you asked me what makes the world go round, I would say self-deception. Self-deception allows us to create a consistent narrative for ourselves that we actually believe. I'm not saying that the truth doesn't matter. It does. But self-deception is how we survive. #Quote by Errol Morris
Rounds quotes by Tom Robbins
#119. Love makes the world go 'round, it's true, but lust stops the world in its tracks; love renders bearable the passage of time, lust causes time to stand still, lust kills time, which is not to say that it wastes it or whiles it aimlessly away but rather that it annihilates it, cancels it, extirpates it from continuum; preventing, while lasts, any lapse into the tense and shabby woes of temporal society, lust is the thousand-pound odometer needle on the dashboard of the absolute. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Rounds quotes by Nate Diaz
#120. There's round-winners, and there's fighters. #Quote by Nate Diaz
Rounds quotes by Jim Butcher
#121. And it's deadly to us. We can inspire lust, but it's just a shadow. An illusion. Love is a dangerous force." He shook his head. "Love killed the dinosaurs, man."
I'm pretty sure a meteor killed the dinosaurs, Thomas."
He shrugged. "There's a theory making the rounds now that when the meteor hit it only killed off the big stuff. That there were plenty of smaller reptiles running around, about the same size as all the mammals at the time. The reptiles should have regained their position eventually, but they didn't, because the mammals could feel love. They could be utterly, even irrationally devoted to their mates and their offspring. It made them more likely to survive. The lizards couldn't do that. The meteor hit gave the mammals their shot, but it was love that turned the tide. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Rounds quotes by Thomas Paine
#122. But such is the irresistable nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants is the liberty of appearing. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Rounds quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson
#123. Dogs live with man as courtiers 'round a monarch, steeped in the flattery of his notice ... to push their favor in this world of pickings and caresses is, perhaps, the business of their lives. #Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Rounds quotes by Nita Ambani
#124. I believe that children have to grow up as all-round personalities, but it cannot be at the cost of academics. #Quote by Nita Ambani
Rounds quotes by Dave Matthews
#125. Just knowing that the world is round
Here I'm dancing on the ground
Am I right side up or upside down?
Is this real or am I dreaming? #Quote by Dave Matthews
Rounds quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#126. I am not superstitious, but the first time I saw this medal, bearing the venerated likeness of John Calvin, I kissed it, imagining that no one saw the action. I was very greatly surprised
when I received this magnificent present, which shall be passed round for your inspection. On the one side is John Calvin with his visage worn by disease and deep thought, and on the other
side is a verse fully applicable to him: 'He endured, as seeing Him who is invisible. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Rounds quotes by Frank O'Hara
#127. A True Account Of Talking To The Sun On Fire Island"

The Sun woke me this morning loud
and clear, saying "Hey! I've been
trying to wake you up for fifteen
minutes. Don't be so rude, you are
only the second poet I've ever chosen
to speak to personally

so why
aren't you more attentive? If I could
burn you through the window I would
to wake you up. I can't hang around
here all day."

"Sorry, Sun, I stayed
up late last night talking to Hal."

"When I woke up Mayakovsky he was
a lot more prompt" the Sun said
petulantly. "Most people are up
already waiting to see if I'm going
to put in an appearance."

I tried
to apologize "I missed you yesterday."
"That's better" he said. "I didn't
know you'd come out." "You may be
wondering why I've come so close?"
"Yes" I said beginning to feel hot
wondering if maybe he wasn't burning me
anyway.

"Frankly I wanted to tell you
I like your poetry. I see a lot
on my rounds and you're okay. You may
not be the greatest thing on earth, but
you're different. Now, I've heard some
say you're crazy, they being excessively
calm themselves to my mind, and other
crazy poets think that you're a boring
reactionary. Not me.

Just keep on
like I do and pay no attention. You'll
find that people always will complain
about the atmosphere #Quote by Frank O'Hara

Rounds quotes by J.K. Rowling
#129. Break not an ancient friendship; keep it hale; Stir round its roots, that it be green of heart; Let not the spirit of its growth depart: It is a power to brave the strongest gale. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Rounds quotes by Kimberly   Jones
#130. If I right now decided that I wanted to play Monopoly with you, and for 400 rounds of playing Monopoly, I didn't allow you to have any money, I didn't allow you to have anything on the board, I didn't allow for you to have anything, and then we played another 50 rounds of Monopoly and everything that you gained and you earned while you were playing that round of Monopoly was taken from you, that was Tulsa. That was Rosewood. Those are places where we built black economic wealth, where we were self-sufficient, where we owned our stores, where we owned our property, and they burned them to the ground. #Quote by Kimberly Jones
Rounds quotes by Ibrahim Ibrahim
#131. An Engineer rounds numbers based on the system behaviour and a Mathematician or a Schoolkid does it based on a pedagogical rule. #Quote by Ibrahim Ibrahim
Rounds quotes by Phill Niblock
#132. Aomori Water is a sound collage piece made in 1998, in Aomori Japan. I was in a residency with other artists. A Japanese sculptor was making a round house and wanted a sound piece to play in it. I recorded some very gentle waves lapping the beach, for the first part. And a very small mountain stream, flowing, for the second part. I layered 8 tracks. This was the first work that I did in ProTools. #Quote by Phill Niblock
Rounds quotes by Virginia Woolf
#133. Yes, yes, I'm coming. Right up the top of the house. One moment I'll linger. How the mud goes round in the mind - what a swirl these monsters leave, the waters rocking, the weeds waving and green here, black there, striking to the sand, till by degrees the atoms reassemble, the deposit sifts itself, and a gain through the eyes one sees clear and still, and there comes to the lips some prayer for the departed, some obsequy for the souls of those one nods to, the one never meets again. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Rounds quotes by Kristi Cook
#134. You and Patrick looked awfully cozy," Ryder says, setting Mama's note back on the counter.
So I was right--he had been watching us.
"So?"
"So, nothing." He shrugs. "Just making an observation."
"Yeah, you never just make an observation. Oh, and you and Rosie looked pretty cozy, too. I sure hope you're not leading her on. You know she likes you."
A muscle in his jaw works furiously as he shoves his cell phone back into his pocket. "That's the kind of guy you think I am? Seriously, Jem?"
I swallow hard, unable to reply. Because the truth is, I don't know.
"I'll see you later," he says, his voice cold and clipped. He turns and stalks out.
For some unknown reason, I follow him--down the hall, out the front door. "Don't walk out on me," I holler as he rounds the Durango and opens the driver's-side door. "If you have something to say to me, then say it."
He gets in and slams the car door shut, but I throw it open again. "C'mon," I taunt, motioning with one hand.
I'm totally losing it now--white spots dancing before my eyes, tears streaking down my cheeks. I can barely catch my breath, like I'm about to hyperventilate.
This isn't about Ryder, I realize. It's about Nan. The sudden realization hits me hard. What if I never see her again?
My knees buckle, and I start to go down. Somehow, Ryder manages to catch me just before I hit the ground. "Shit, Jemma! What's the matter with you?" He drags me to my feet and presses me agai #Quote by Kristi Cook
Rounds quotes by George Crabbe
#135. Feel you the barren flattery of a rhyme?
Can poets soothe you, when you pine for bread,
By winding myrtle round your ruin'd shed? #Quote by George Crabbe
Rounds quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#136. Should two founders split the company right down the middle? Answer you're looking for: No, you should allocate 25 percent to future employees and 35 percent to the first two rounds of investments. That leaves 40 percent for the founders to split among themselves. #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Rounds quotes by Iain Duncan Smith
#137. You cannot stop what the public want. The public want two strong women in the final round and then a woman prime minister and I'm absolutely with that. #Quote by Iain Duncan Smith
Rounds quotes by Ted Williams
#138. The hardest thing to do in baseball is to hit a round baseball with a round bat, squarely. #Quote by Ted Williams
Rounds quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#139. Come, see the north-wind's masonry, Out of an unseen quarry evermore Furnished with tile, the fierce artificer Curves his white bastions with projected roof Round every windward stake, or tree, or door. Speeding, the myriad-handed, his wild work So fanciful, so savage, naught cares he For number or proportion. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Rounds quotes by Tim Burton
#140. [Childbirth] is the weirdest thing I've ever seen. It's like an 'Alien' movie. I started crying, it was so emotional ... I was there in the room but I wasn't planning on doing much. But then I see this blue pinhead come out and I think I said to the nurse, 'What the hell is that?' And then it turns into this round red thing in seconds. It's just shocking. #Quote by Tim Burton
Rounds quotes by Clint Van Winkle
#141. I wanted people to know that we fired rounds into moving trucks and open windows to survive, not for anyone else's freedom. Not for the Democrats. Not for Republicans. Just to survive. #Quote by Clint Van Winkle
Rounds quotes by Leonard Peltier
#142. According to court records, during the siege at Wounded Knee, more than two hundred and fifty thousand rounds were fired at our people by U.S. marshalls, FBI agents, the tribal police, the GOONs, and white vigilantes. These boys weren't kidding. And neither were we. #Quote by Leonard Peltier
Rounds quotes by Frederick Lenz
#143. Selfliss giving rounds the edges in spiritual practice. Many people can meditate very well but they're still very egotistical. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Rounds quotes by Neil Young
#144. This old world keeps spinnin' round; It's a wonder tall trees ain't layin' down. #Quote by Neil Young
Rounds quotes by William Trevor
#145. The wife he had first chosen had dressed drably: from silence and inflexious--more than from words--he learned that now. Her grey hair straggled to her shoulders, her back was a little humped. He poked his way about, and they were two old people when they went out on their rounds, older than they were in their ageless happiness. She wouldn't have hurt a fly, she wasn't a person you could be jealous of, yet of course it was hard on a new wife to be haunted by happiness, to be challenged by the simplicities there had been. He had given himself to two women; he hadn't withdrawn from the first, he didn't from the second.
Each house that contained a piano brought forth its contradictions. The pearls old Mrs. Putrill wore were opals, the pallid skin of the stationer in Kiliath was freckled, the two lines of oaks above Oghill were surely beeches? 'Of course, of course,' Owen Dromgould agreed, since it was fair that he should do so. Belle could not be blamed for making her claim, and claims could not be made without damage or destruction. Belle would win in the end because the living always do. And that seemed fair also, since Violet had won in the beginning, and had had the better years."

--"The Piano Tuner's Wives #Quote by William Trevor
Rounds quotes by Jacqueline Francis - The Journal
#146. The virus seemed to be thriving on his misery, relentlessly tearing through his insides.
Every day it made its rounds through his body. It started at his fingers, making them itch to touch her until he could almost feel her fleshy lips beneath his thumb, the silky strands of her hair sliding through his fingers. It would then move up to his arms, creating an urge to hold her, an urge that could not be fulfilled.
Next it went for his eyes, causing him to see her everywhere, in every little thing. He would see her in the kitchen, making coffee. He would see her cuddled up on the sofa, watching T.V. He had to blink several times before he realised that she wasn't really there. It would then move to his heart, ruthlessly choking it until it was so heavy and so sore, he could feel the pain of losing her in every beat.
And then, finally, just as night fell, it would attack his brain, invoking images of her.
Thoughts and memories and dreams. He could not take much more. It was slowly driving him insane. He could not break out of these shackles. #Quote by Jacqueline Francis - The Journal
Rounds quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#147. Our civilization has decided, and very justly decided, that determining the guilt or innocence of men is a thing too important to be trusted to trained men. It wishes for light upon that awful matter, it asks men who know no more law than I know, but who can feel the thing that I felt in that jury box. When it wants a library catalogued, or the solar system discovered, or any trifle of that kind, it uses up its specialists. But when it wishes anything done which is really serious, it collects twelve of the ordinary men standing round. The same thing was done, if I remember right, by the Founder of Christianity. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Rounds quotes by Matthew Gray Gubler
#148. My favorite time of year is October, Halloween is my favorite holiday, and I know that watching horror movies was such a special thing to me as a child and my only dream is that I get to make it feel like Halloween all year round for other kids, for other weirdos like me. #Quote by Matthew Gray Gubler
Rounds quotes by Bear Grylls
#149. This general lack of sleep really got to me. And little can prepare people for how they will react when deprived of it--over multiple days. Everything suffers: concentration, motivation, and performance. All key elements for what we were doing. But it is designed that way. Break you down and find out what you are really made of. Underneath the fluff.
I remember during one particular lecture (on the excruciatingly boring topic of the different penetration abilities of different bullets or rounds), looking over to my left and noticing Trucker jabbing his arm with a safety pin every few minutes in an attempt to keep himself awake.
The sight cheered me up no end. #Quote by Bear Grylls

#152. When we heard we were topping the bill over James Brown we couldn't believe it. We tried for two days to get it changed round - I mean you can't follow an act like that. #Quote by Mick Jagger
Rounds quotes by Kelli Jae Baeli
#153. Sully's, on South Prospect, was the quintessential biker-bar, complete with hefty, leather-clad Harley worshippers, and stringy-haired heroin-addicted women who made the rounds among the bikers. Its décor was decidedly Medieval Garage Sale, with a dose of Americana thrown in. An old motorcycle carcass dangled from the vaulted section of the beamed ceiling, and the wood plank floors were littered with butts, scarred by bottle caps and splattered with homogenized bodily fluids. The only light to be had was from neon, dying sconces, and lit cigarettes. Various medieval swords perched on each wall, reminiscent of the times of Beowulf and Fire Dragons on the Barrow. #Quote by Kelli Jae Baeli
Rounds quotes by Frederick Lenz
#154. Something in you wants to go beyond, wants to be free from this endless round of perception. Enlightenment is that. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Rounds quotes by G.R. Matthews
#155. If you've ever taken a sub, you'll know they have available every luxury item the weary traveller could ever wish to purchase. Drinks, food, perfumes, clothes, blankets, anything. These compartments weren't empty, but I doubt the weary traveller was really in the market for a selection of low and high powered pistols, assault rifles, armour piercing rounds and the variety of explosive devices on offer. Unless they were on the way to a Christmas family get-together. #Quote by G.R. Matthews
Rounds quotes by Cynthia Bourgeault
#156. I find nothing in the Gospel of Thomas that contradicts any of Jesus's teachings in the canonical gospels. Rather, it rounds them out metaphysically and creates a newfound sense of awe as we see just how original and subtle his understanding really is. He is the first truly integral teacher to appear on this planet. As we take a fresh look at these teachings at once familiar and strange, we're catapulted forward again along a path that rings with the power of truth. #Quote by Cynthia Bourgeault
Rounds quotes by Fanny Burney
#157. This perpetual round of constrained civilities to persons quite indifferent to us, is the most provoking and tiresome thing in theworld, but it is unavoidable in a country town, where everybody is known ... 'Tis a most shocking and unworthy way of spending our precious irrecoverable time, to those who know not its value. #Quote by Fanny Burney
Rounds quotes by William Butler Yeats
#158. The winds awaken, the leaves whirl round,
Our cheeks are pale, our hair is unbound,
Our breasts are heaving, our eyes are agleam,
Our arms are waving, our lips are apart ... #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Rounds quotes by Avital Ronell
#159. Stupidity exceeds and undercuts materiality, runs loose, wins a few rounds, recedes, gets carried home in a clutch of denial-and returns. Essentially linked to the inexhaustible, stupidity is also that which fatigues knowledge and wears down history. #Quote by Avital Ronell
Rounds quotes by Norah Jones
#160. A song will keep going round in my brain and keep me awake. #Quote by Norah Jones
Rounds quotes by Matt Taibbi
#161. The significance of Columbus's discovery was that on a round earth, humanity is more interconnected than on a flat one. On a round earth, the two most distant points are closer together than they are on a flat earth. #Quote by Matt Taibbi

Rounds quotes by Abraham Cowley
#164. Water and air He for the Tenor chose,
Earth made the Base, the Treble Fame arose,
To th' active Moon a quick brisk stroke he gave,
To Saturn's string a touch more sore and grave.
The motions strait, and round, and swift, and slow,
And short and long, were mixt and woven so,
Did in such artful Figures smoothly fall,
As made this decent measur'd dance of all.
And this is Musick. #Quote by Abraham Cowley
Rounds quotes by David D. Friedman
#165. Special interest politics is a simple game. A hundred people sit in a circle, each with his pocket full of pennies. A politician walks around the outside of the circle, taking a penny from each person. No one minds; who cares about a penny? When he has gotten all the way around the circle, the politician throws fifty cents down in front of one person, who is overjoyed at the unexpected windfall. The process is repeated, ending with a different person. After a hundred rounds everyone is a hundred cents poorer, fifty cents richer, and happy. #Quote by David D. Friedman
Rounds quotes by William Blake
#166. And priests in black gowns were walking their rounds and binding with briars my joys and desires. (from 'The Garden of Love') #Quote by William Blake
Rounds quotes by Kenneth Rexroth
#167. Ex-cons always say, "You never know what makes the wheels go round until you've done time in the joint." This is even more true of psychiatric hospitals. It is a perfect mass hypostatization of society, the organization of the Social Lie. #Quote by Kenneth Rexroth
Rounds quotes by Martin Amis
#168. You never can tell, though, with suicide notes, can you? In the planetary aggregate of all life, there are many more suicide notes than there are suicides. They're like poems in that respect, suicide notes: nearly everyone tries their hand at them some time, with or without the talent. We all write them in our heads. Usually the note is the thing. You complete it, and then resume your time travel. It is the note and not the life that is cancelled out. Or the other way round. Or death. You never can tell, though, can you, with suicide notes. #Quote by Martin Amis
Rounds quotes by Colleen Hoover
#169. Twenty-two hours and our war begins
Our war of limbs
and lips
and hands ...
The best part of finally
Not calling retreat?
The showers above us
Raining down on our feet
While the bombs are exploding and the guns fire their rounds. Before the two of us collapse to the ground. Before the battle, before the war ...
You need to know
I'd go fifty-nine more.
Whatever it takes to let you win.
I'd retreat all over
and over
again. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Rounds quotes by Hilda Doolittle
#170. The laying of fish on the embers, the taste of the fish, the feel of the texture of bread, the round and the half-loaf, the grain of a petal, the rain-bow and the rain. #Quote by Hilda Doolittle
Rounds quotes by Julie Garwood
#171. I'm a doctor," she reminded him. "Nothing embarrasses me."
"Yeah? So if I call the hospital while you're making rounds, you won't be embarrassed when I have the operator page Dr. Smarty-pants? #Quote by Julie Garwood
Rounds quotes by William Wordsworth
#172. Thanks to the human heart by which we live,
Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, and its fears,
To me the meanest flower that blows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears. #Quote by William Wordsworth
Rounds quotes by George Harrison
#173. I always really enjoyed our early days, before we got too famous. We used to play clubs and that kind of stuff all the time. And it was fun. It was good because you get to play and get quite good at the instrument. But then we got famous, and it spoiled all that, because we'd just go round and round the world singing the same 10 dopey tunes. #Quote by George Harrison
Rounds quotes by Joe Murray
#174. The world turns on a dime, the same now as it always has - which is to say, money makes the world go 'round. It's also what makes the world go spinning out of control. #Quote by Joe Murray
Rounds quotes by Joseph Addison
#175. Round-heads and Wooden-shoes are standing jokes. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Rounds quotes by E. Nesbit
#176. When you are young so many things are difficult to believe, and yet the dullest people will tell you that they are true
such things, for instance, as that the earth goes round the sun, and that it is not flat but round. But the things that seem really likely, like fairy-tales and magic, are, so say the grown-ups, not true at all. Yet they are so easy to believe, especially when you see them happening. #Quote by E. Nesbit
Rounds quotes by Ralph Ellison
#177. Everywhere I've turned somebody has wanted to sacrifice me for my own good - only /they/ were the ones who benefited. And now we start on the old sacrificial merry-go-round. At what point do we stop? #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Rounds quotes by Joe
#178. You don't need an AR-15. It's harder to aim, it's harder to use, and in fact, you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun. #Quote by Joe
Rounds quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#179. Hate gets going, it goes round, it gets older and tighter and older and tighter, until it holds a person inside it like a fist holds a stick. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Rounds quotes by George Polya
#180. My method to overcome a difficulty is to go round it. #Quote by George Polya
Rounds quotes by Sarah MacLean
#181. That brow arched once more. "Does it? You think people will believe it when the truth is that I ruined you on an abandoned estate before your father stormed the house with a rifle?"
She hesitated. "I would not call it storming."
"He fired several rounds at my house. If that isn't storming, I don't know what is. #Quote by Sarah MacLean
Rounds quotes by Gayle Forman
#182. Barrel of the gun, rounds one two three
She says I have to pick: choose you, or choose me
Metal to the temple, the explosion is deafening
Lick the blood that covers me
She's the last one standing
"Roulette"
Collateral Damage, Track 11 #Quote by Gayle Forman
Rounds quotes by Nicholas Hoult

#184. All the year round there is spring, all through life is youth; there is always something which may flower. #Quote by Karel Capek
Rounds quotes by Alexander Rodchenko
#185. One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations, as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole again and again. #Quote by Alexander Rodchenko
Rounds quotes by Eve Langlais
#186. Just how many rounds are we going to have?"
- "As many as it takes to make sure we can go at least an hour without a hard on #Quote by Eve Langlais
Rounds quotes by Daley Thompson
#187. I've still got a small fitness and conditioning business where I travel round the world doing stuff for individuals and corporations, mainly fitness training. #Quote by Daley Thompson
Rounds quotes by Laura Ingalls Wilder
#188. Life was not intended to be simply a round of work, no matter how interesting and important that work may be. A moment's pause to watch the glory of a sunrise or a sunset is soul-satisfying, while a bird's song will set the steps to music all day long. #Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Rounds quotes by William Shakespeare
#189. For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground
And tell sad stories of the death of kings;
How some have been deposed; some slain in war,
Some haunted by the ghosts they have deposed;
Some poison'd by their wives: some sleeping kill'd;
All murder'd: for within the hollow crown
That rounds the mortal temples of a king
Keeps Death his court and there the antic sits,
Scoffing his state and grinning at his pomp,
Allowing him a breath, a little scene,
To monarchize, be fear'd and kill with looks,
Infusing him with self and vain conceit,
As if this flesh which walls about our life,
Were brass impregnable, and humour'd thus
Comes at the last and with a little pin
Bores through his castle wall, and farewell king!
Act 3, Scene 2 #Quote by William Shakespeare
Rounds quotes by Thomas Malthus
#190. The moon is not kept in her orbit round the earth, nor the earth in her orbit round the sun, by a force that varies merely in the inverse ratio of the squares of the distances. #Quote by Thomas Malthus
Rounds quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#191. Between me and the other world there is ever an unasked question: unasked by some through feelings of delicacy; by others through the difficulty of rightly framing it. All, nevertheless, flutter round it. How does it feel to be a problem? To have your very body and the bodies of your children to be assume to be criminal, violent, malignant. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Rounds quotes by Thomas Beecham
#192. I have just been all round the world and have formed a very poor opinion of it. #Quote by Thomas Beecham
Rounds quotes by Cardinal Richelieu
#193. One must believe neither the people of the palace, who ordinarily measure the power of the king by the shape of his crown, which, being round, has no end, nor those who, in the excesses of an indiscreet zeal, proclaim themselves openly as partisans of Rome. #Quote by Cardinal Richelieu
Rounds quotes by Phil Mickelson
#194. I have come to understand and appreciate writers much more recently since I started working on a book last fall. Before that, I thought golf writers got up every morning, played a round of golf, had lunch, showed up for our last three holes and then went to dinner. #Quote by Phil Mickelson
Rounds quotes by Eric Fellner
#195. So that is new in terms of where I've seen the shifts. Otherwise, it's all about taste and taste just keeps going round and round and round. #Quote by Eric Fellner
Rounds quotes by Saeed Jones
#196. A joke I used to repeat in those days was: Why be happy when you can be interesting? I knew how to be interesting. There was power in being a spectacle, even a miserable spectacle. The punch and the line. Interesting: sentences like serrated blades, laughter like machine-gun rounds, a drink in one hand, a borrowed cigarette in the other. If you could draw enough glances, any room could orbit around you. #Quote by Saeed Jones
Rounds quotes by Rajani LaRocca
#197. I was in the mood for some savory scones- I couldn't eat only sweet things, no matter what Mrs. T said.
I cut cold butter into flour with my pastry blender, added minced sun-dried tomatoes, fresh Parmesan, salt and pepper, sprinkled in oregano, and then, on a whim, tossed in crushed fennel seeds. I mixed in an egg and some milk. I kneaded the dough a few times, cut out rounds, and plopped them on a cookie sheet. I brushed the tops with more milk and slid the sheet into the hot oven. #Quote by Rajani LaRocca
Rounds quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#198. Round and round we spin, with feet of lead and wings of tin. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Rounds quotes by Michael Oppenheimer
#199. Mexican police will round up illegal American migrants surging into Mexico seeking work as field hands. #Quote by Michael Oppenheimer
Rounds quotes by James Herriot
#200. It was Sunday morning (one a.m.), a not unusual time for some farmers, after a late Saturday night, to have a look round their stock and decide to send for the vet. #Quote by James Herriot
