Spades Of Ace quotes by Jodi Picoult
#1. This was something she would keep hidden within herself, maybe in place of the knot of pain and anger she had been carrying under her breastbone ... a security blanket, an ace up her sleeve. She might never use it, but she would always feel its presence like a swelling secret stone, and that way when she let go of the rage, she would not feel nearly as empty. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Spades Of Ace quotes by John Ruskin
#2. All real and wholesome enjoyments possible to people have been just as possible to them since first they were made of the earth as they are now; and they are possible to them chiefly in peace. To watch the corn grow, and the blossoms set; to draw hard breath over plowshare or spade; to read, to think, to love, to hope: these are the things that make people happy. #Quote by John Ruskin
Spades Of Ace quotes by Mackenzie Herbert
#3. But that's life right? It's just a shitty hand of cards. But then maybe somebody pulls out an Ace, and somebody else gets a four, or a ten. It's all in the draw and how you play it. #Quote by Mackenzie Herbert
Spades Of Ace quotes by Pablo Neruda
#4. There's a country spread out in the sky, a credulous carpet of rainbows and crepuscular plants: I move toward it just a bit haggardly, trampling a gravedigger's rubble still moist from the spade to dream in a bedlam of vegetables. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Spades Of Ace quotes by Helen Dunmore
#5. The Duration

Here they are are on the beach where the boy played
for fifteen summers, before he grew too old
for French cricket, shrimping and rock pools.

Here is the place where he built his dam
year after year. See, the stream still comes down
just as it did, and spreads itself on the sand

into a dozen channels. How he enlisted them:
those splendid spades, those sunbonneted girls
furiously shoring up the ramparts.

Here they are on the beach, just as they were
those fifteen summers. She has a rough towel
ready for him. The boy was always last out of the water.

She would rub him down hard, chafe him like a foal
up on its legs for an hour and trembling, all angles.
She would dry carefully between his toes.

Here they are on the beach, the two of them
sitting on the same square of mackintosh,
the same tartan rug. Quality lasts.

There are children in the water, and mothers patrolling
the sea's edge, calling them back
from the danger zone beyond the breakers.

How her heart would stab when he went too far out.
Once she flustered into the water, shouting
until he swam back. He was ashamed of her then.

Wouldn't speak, wouldn't look at her even.
Her skirt was sopped. She had to wring out the hem.
She wonders if Father remembers.

Later, when they've had their sandwiches
she might spea #Quote by Helen Dunmore
Spades Of Ace quotes by Jacques Tardi
#6. This was the moment when the 20th century really began, in all its viciousness and bloody-mindedness. Me, I had imagination in spades, though. I saw myself as a corpse, swept into this stream of fools against my will along with thousands, millions of other corpses, and I didn't like it one little bit.
The other guys, still waiting on the platform at the Gare de l'Est, already saw themselves throwing back a well-earned beer on Alexanderplatz.
Only the mothers really knew. They knew the babies in their arms were tomorrow's war orphans, and the cattle cars (8 horses, 40 men) were nothing but rail-mounted coffins joined end to end and headed for military cemeteries. #Quote by Jacques Tardi
Spades Of Ace quotes by Claire Adams
#7. Okay. So you know, you need to beat the dealer. Yeah?" he began. I nodded. "Okay. When you count cards, you have to remember; cards between 2 and 6 have a value of a plus one. Cards between seven and nine have a value of zero. Cards between ten and ace have a value of negative one. #Quote by Claire Adams
Spades Of Ace quotes by Cathy N. Davidson

Spades Of Ace quotes by Marissa Meyer
#9. Maybe Ace really was a villain. Or maybe he was a visionary. Maybe there's not much of a difference. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Spades Of Ace quotes by Tim Winton
#10. ...architecture was what you had instead of landscape, a signal of loss, of imitation. Europe had it in spades... #Quote by Tim Winton
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ace Frehley
#11. I have a lot of diehard fans. Ace Frehley fans and Kiss fans are the greatest fans in the world. #Quote by Ace Frehley
Spades Of Ace quotes by Virginia Woolf
#12. Here have lived for more centuries than I can count, the obscure generations of my own obscure family. Not one of these Richards, Johns, Annes, Elizabeths have left a token of himself behind him, yet all, working together with their spades and their needles, their love-making and their child-bearing have left this.
-Viginia Woolf #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Spades Of Ace quotes by Mariecor Ruediger
#13. .....I'm certain I asked for a cowboy one December past--
For I wanted the excitement of pioneers to last;
I ached to sing with a fiddle, speak with a drawl and twang;
I surely requested John Wayne to be part of my gang.

Of course I dreamed of a cowboy in those Yuletides of yore--
For I wanted that ace, that corral fighter, that scout roar;
I ached for the authentic frontier hero of the West;
I surely requested the sacred battleground's finest.

I did pray Santa'd give me a cowboy some time ago--
For I wanted a legend in denim wrangler for beau;
I ached to be rounded up safely by my saddled knight;
I surely requested I be prospected, mined, settled right...

-----excerpted from the poem 'A Cowboy For Christmas' in the book FROM GUAM TO CROWN CITY CORONADO (THANKS TO HERMANN, MISSOURI): A JOURNEY IN POESY, by Mariecor Ruediger #Quote by Mariecor Ruediger
Spades Of Ace quotes by Kit Rocha
#14. What'll happen if I tell him? If I tell him I risked everyone in the damn sector, everyone in all the sectors. That I promised the scariest man any of us will ever meet an open-ended favor, and in return he kidnapped the most prized doctor in Eden and brought her here in the trunk of a fucking car?" Cruz slammed an open palm against the headboard and leaned over them, his gaze a little wild. "What will you do if I tell you that, Ace? Will you finally believe I fucking love you? Or will you figure out a way that it's all about her? #Quote by Kit Rocha
Spades Of Ace quotes by Sarah Shun-lien Bynum
#15. That is what is marvelous about school, she realized: when you are in school, your talents are without number, and your promise is boundless. You ace a math test: you will one day work for NASA. The choir director asks you to sing a solo at the holiday concert: you are the next Mariah Carey. You score a goal, you win a poetry contest, you act in a play. And you are everything at once: actor, astronomer, gymnast, star. But at a certain point, you begin to feel your talents dropping away, like feathers from a molting bird. Cello lessons conflict with soccer practice. There aren't enough spots on the debating team. Calculus remains elusive. Until the day you realize that you cannot think of a single thing you are wonderful at. #Quote by Sarah Shun-lien Bynum
Spades Of Ace quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#16. I have always had a number of parts lined up in case the muse failed. A lepidopterist exploring famous jungles came first, then there was the chess grand master, then the tennis ace with an unreturnable service, then the goalie saving a historic shot, and finally, finally, the author of a pile of unknown writings- Pale Fire, Lolita, Ada- which my heirs discover and publish. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ace Boggess
#17. This sludge oozes like a dying sea snake, though it tastes like it's already dead. Some evil force made up this concoction, intending to release it to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world. But the creator made the mistake of tasting his creation and passed on. The world was saved for a moment. Still, like the black plague, this thing refused to fade out forever. I'm sad to report that our good friend Cliff behind the bar rediscovered it. Now it's spreading around the world as if carried by rats. #Quote by Ace Boggess
Spades Of Ace quotes by Jane Ace
#18. I look like the wrath of grapes. #Quote by Jane Ace
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ace Hood
#19. There's a lot of people that try to come between my clique and try to stop what we're doin', but we got no mercy for 'em. #Quote by Ace Hood
Spades Of Ace quotes by Bill Rancic
#20. It's more and more difficult to get through to your audience with all of the clutter. This is a great way for Ace to get [its] message out. #Quote by Bill Rancic
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ace Hood
#21. Regardless of what people say, that's what they gotta bang in their heads: Ace Hood is the future. You ain't got nobody else in my lane. #Quote by Ace Hood
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ace Antonio Hall
#22. Take a child & teach him physics his first 7 grades of education, I submit he'd excel to a savant-like level. Imagine adult focus for 7 yrs. #Quote by Ace Antonio Hall
Spades Of Ace quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#23. Men will trust in God no further than they know Him; and they cannot be in the exercise of faith in Him one ace further than they have a sight of His fulness and faithfulness in exercise. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Spades Of Ace quotes by Scarlett Dawn
#24. Damn, she's good."
"Of course she bloody is," Pearl murmured, her ace still stuffed against Jack's neck, even though she sounded like the prim English woman she was, her tone turning curt. "She's my mother. #Quote by Scarlett Dawn
Spades Of Ace quotes by Margie Warrell
#25. Earlier in this book I noted that one of my favorite sayings is "You get what you tolerate." This applies in spades to your relationships. Failing to speak up about something carries the implication that you are OK with it - that you are prepared to continue tolerating it. As a companion saying goes, "Silence means consent." If you tolerate snide or offensive remarks from your boss or colleague, the remarks will continue. If you tolerate your spouse's lack of consideration for your feelings, it will continue. If you tolerate the disregard of people who regularly turn up late for meetings or social engagements, they will continue to keep you cooling your heels. If you tolerate your child's lack of respect, you will continue to get no respect. Each time you tolerate a behavior, you are subtly teaching that person that it is OK to treat you that way. #Quote by Margie Warrell
Spades Of Ace quotes by William Cowper
#26. With spots quadrangular of diamond form, ensanguined hearts, clubs typical of strife, and spades, the emblems of untimely graves. #Quote by William Cowper
Spades Of Ace quotes by James Shirley
#27. The glories of our blood and state
Are shadows, not substantial things;
There is no armor against Fate.
Death lays his icy hand on kings ... #Quote by James Shirley
Spades Of Ace quotes by Joseph Lewis
#28. Man's inhumanity to man will continue as long as man loves God more than he loves his fellow man. The love of God means wasted love. 'For God and Country' means a divided allegiance - a 50 per cent patriot.

The most abused word in the language of man is the word 'God.' The reason for this is that it is subject to so much abuse. There is no other word in the human language that is as meaningless and incapable of explanation as is the word 'God.' It is the beginning and end of nothing. It is the Alpha and Omega of Ignorance.

It has as many meanings as there are minds. And as each person has an opinion of what the word God ought to mean, it is a word without premise, without foundation, and without substance. It is without validity. It is all things to all people, and is as meaningless as it is indefinable. It is the most dangerous in the hands of the unscrupulous, and is the joker that trumps the ace. It is the poisoned word that has paralyzed the brain of man.

'The fear of the Lord' is not the beginning of wisdom; on the contrary, it has made man a groveling slave; it has made raving lunatics of those who have attempted to interpret what God 'is' and what is supposed to be our 'duty' to God. It has made man prostitute the most precious things of life - it has made him sacrifice wife, and child, and home.

'In the name of God' means in the name of nothing - it has caused man to be a wastrel with the precious elixir of life, because the #Quote by Joseph Lewis

Spades Of Ace quotes by Leo Robin
#30. Thanks for the memory Of lingerie with lace, Pilsner by the case And how I jumped the day you trumped my one-and-only ace How lovely it was! #Quote by Leo Robin
Spades Of Ace quotes by Mark Twain
#31. They growled a response and went on digging. For some time there was no noise but the grating sound of the spades discharging their freight of mould and gravel. It was very monotonous. Finally a spade struck upon the coffin with a dull woody accent, and within another minute or two the men had hoisted it out on the ground. They pried off the lid with their shovels, got out the body and dumped it rudely on the ground. The moon drifted from behind the clouds and exposed the pallid face. The barrow was got ready and the corpse placed on it, covered with a blanket, and bound to its place with the rope. Potter took out a large spring-knife and cut off the dangling end of the rope and then said: "Now the cussed thing's ready, Sawbones, and you'll just out with another five, or here she stays. #Quote by Mark Twain
Spades Of Ace quotes by K. Bromberg
#32. But then there are those moments, Colton, when you watch your child do something and are so damn proud of them you are left speechless. And those moments take every single doubt and fear and heartache and moment of insanity you've ever had and wipe the slate clean. That's how I felt watching you go to see your dad. That's how I feel knowing you and Ry are going to adopt Zander. That's how I feel watching you be a father. Hell, son, when you stepped up to the plate after Rylee got sick and swung it out of the goddamn park by taking care of Ace? I've never been prouder. #Quote by K. Bromberg
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ace Hood
#33. I want certain things out of life. I want my grand kids, my kids' kids, being able to inherit what I've worked so hard to build. #Quote by Ace Hood
Spades Of Ace quotes by Jennie Finch
#34. I just feel like it gets harder and harder every year with Ace getting older and time away from my husband and even family events such as birthdays and friends' weddings and things that I've always just missed out on because of softball. #Quote by Jennie Finch
Spades Of Ace quotes by Hannah  Johnson
#35. Mitch is perhaps the most reassuring sight of all. He's sitting up really straight – like, somebody put a leather-bound tome on his head, because this guy's posture is ace. #Quote by Hannah Johnson
Spades Of Ace quotes by Kate Meader
#36. The human brain was, on the whole, a marvelous thing. It worked perfectly from the day you were born until the moment you needed it to ace an exam or resist the show-and-tell of Flynn Cross's dick. #Quote by Kate Meader
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ace Antonio Hall
#37. November 20th, 2013. A new beginning. A new day. Reborn. Time to grow. Hello world! I am yours. Feed me, I am full of curiosity. Awakened. #Quote by Ace Antonio Hall
Spades Of Ace quotes by Meghan March
#38. Elle's chin lifted. "I just told you how you could put your hands on me. One night. None of this dating bullshit."

A harsh noise came out of my throat, because the woman could be infuriating. I'd never thrown out an offer like this and having it pitched back in my face sucked ass. "Tell me why. What's your hang up, woman? I get that I'm fucked up in a helluva lot of ways, but I'm not a bad guy. I don't even deserve a shot?"

The ice in her expression melted a degree. "It's not you - "

My laugh was gravelly. "Let me guess, it's you?"

That ice? It was back, in spades. She pivoted for the door, but I moved faster. I trapped her against it, a hand pressed to the wood on either side of her fiery red hair.

"You're going to tell me why before you leave this room."

"You're not a bad guy? Just the kind that traps women against their will in a room they want to leave?"

I smiled. "Not women - just you."

This time it was Elle who growled. She shoved against my chest, but I was an immovable rock where she was concerned. I didn't budge. "You're a caveman too, just like your brother, aren't you? I've heard the stories. Is this a genetic issue? #Quote by Meghan March
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ace Antonio Hall
#39. If I had a dime for every time I heard someone say that they're tired of a genre (zombies) because it's only a fad, I'd be rich. #DeadRising #Quote by Ace Antonio Hall
Spades Of Ace quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#40. A miracle is an act or event out of the order of nature and unaccountable, as beating a normal hand of four kings and an ace with four aces and a king. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Spades Of Ace quotes by Janet Flanner
#41. She felt about a love set as a painter does about his masterpiece; each ace serve was a form of brushwork to her, and her fantastically accurate shot-placing was certainly a study in composition. #Quote by Janet Flanner
Spades Of Ace quotes by Busy Philipps
#42. Also, this is what a pregnant Busy Philipps does in her free time, I'm taking master fondant cake decorating class with Anna from 'Ace of Cakes' at Duff's Charm City Cakes. It's, like, 4 three-hour classes. #Quote by Busy Philipps
Spades Of Ace quotes by Raymond Chandler
#43. Hammett was the ace performer ... He is said to have lacked heart; yet the story he himself thought the most of [The Glass Key] is the record of a man's devotion to a friend. He was spare, frugal, hard-boiled, but he did over and over again what only the best writers can ever do at all. He wrote scenes that seemed never to have been written before. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Spades Of Ace quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#44. Every time I look up and catch that kid's vacant eye, I suffer agonies. I tell you, Bertie, sometimes when he gives me a patronising glance and then turns away and is sick, as if it revolted him to look at me, I come within an ace of occupying the entire front page of the evening papers as the latest murder sensation. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Spades Of Ace quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#45. The ACE study group concluded: "Although widely understood to be harmful to health, each adaptation [such as smoking, drinking, drugs, obesity] is notably difficult to give up. Little consideration is given to the possibility that many long-term health risks might also be personally beneficial in the short term. We repeatedly hear from patients of the benefits of these 'health risks.' The idea of the problem being a solution, while understandably disturbing to many, is certainly in keeping with the fact that opposing forces routinely coexist in biological systems. . . . What one sees, the presenting problem, is often only the marker for the real problem, which lies buried in time, concealed by patient shame, secrecy and sometimes amnesia - and frequently clinician discomfort. #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Spades Of Ace quotes by J. Ann Tickner
#46. The depiction of women by women (sometimes themselves) as a political statement grows potentially more powerful as it approaches actual exploitation but then, within an ace of it, collapses into ambiguity and confusion. The more attractive the women, the higher the risk, since the more closely they approach conventional stereotypes in the first place. #Quote by J. Ann Tickner
Spades Of Ace quotes by Anna Maxted
#47. I knew I wasn't second best for Tim (just as I knew that in real life, Jolene's flaming locks and eyes of emerald green stood no change against the aces of spades that was Dolly Parton's chest), but it took some believing, because I'd been second best to my sister for most of my life. That shakes your faith in yourself. #Quote by Anna Maxted
Spades Of Ace quotes by Patricia D. Netzley
#48. Tool lists from the fourteenth century indicate that pitchforks, spades, axes, plows, and harrows, which have teeth to break up soil, were widely used. Both plows and harrows could be pushed or pulled by peasants. However, during the Renaissance an increasing number of farms used horses for such tasks, as well as for pulling carts that would take surplus food to market in nearby towns. #Quote by Patricia D. Netzley
Spades Of Ace quotes by Kristen Ashley
#49. His smile got even bigger. Yeah, Ace, a day of you cryin' in my arms, sleepin' in my arms, kissin' you, feelin' your body, smellin' your hair, your perfume, only so much a man can take. I ran for an hour, hard, didn't even fuckin' warm up, it didn't touch it. Come back, deal with that fuckwad, (that's her ex) and you're standin' there, all legs and hair, wearin' my shirt. Seriously. Only so much a man can take. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
