Stenholm Surname quotes by Victor Kloss
#1. Sir, this is absurd," he said. "You have the wrong Greenwood. There must be a lord or nobleman with the same surname. I have no association with whoever organised this meeting." The guard's face darkened. "This meeting has been organised by Her Majesty, the Queen. Unfortunately, there has been no mistake. Now, be seated and be silent. #Quote by Victor Kloss
Stenholm Surname quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#2. A name is so important. A surname connects you to your past, to your family. Even a given name has meaning - why did your parents pick that particular one? #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
Stenholm Surname quotes by Jarod Kintz
#3. I live my life according to a code. You might know it by the surname Morse. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Stenholm Surname quotes by David Nicholls
#4. She sometimes wondered what her twenty-two-year-old self would think of today's Emma Mayhew. Would she consider her self-centered? Compromised? A bourgeois sell-out, with her appetite for home ownership and foreign travel, clothes from Paris and expensive haircuts? Would she find her conventional, with her new surname and hopes for a family life? Maybe, but then the twenty-two-year-old Emma Morley wasn't such a paragon either: pretentious, petulant, lazy, speechifying, judgmental. Self-pitying, self-righteous, self-important, all of the selfs except self-confident, the quality that she always needed most. #Quote by David Nicholls
Stenholm Surname quotes by Sanjay Dutt
#5. Your lineage and surname become irrelevant after your first film. Audiences do not care. #Quote by Sanjay Dutt
Stenholm Surname quotes by Georges Perec
#6. Grace Slaughter - the surname of her fifth husband, a manufacturer of pharmaceutical toners and "prophylactic" products, recently deceased due to a ruptured peritoneum - was sharply chauvinistic and would allow no more than two exceptions to her all-American views, exceptions with which her first spouse, Astolphe de Guéménolé-Longtgermain, no doubt had something to do: cooking had to be done by French nationals of male gender, laundry and ironing by British subjects of female gender (and absolutely not by Chinese). That allowed Henri Fresnel to be hired without having to hide his original citizenship, which is what had to be done by the director (Hungarian), the set designer (Russian), the choreographer (Lithuanian), the dancers (Italian, Greek, Egyptian), the scriptwriter (English), the librettist (Austrian), and the composer, a Finn of Bulgarian descent with a large dash of Romanian. #Quote by Georges Perec
Stenholm Surname quotes by Gregory Maguire
#7. What's missing from the literature of our species are the stories of the peasants. The filthy illiterate. Those with no firm address, no surname. No one to impress, nothing to lose. But the poor tell stories, too. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Stenholm Surname quotes by J.K. Rowling
#8. And this is Nymphadora-"
"Don't call me Nymphadora, Remus," said the young witch with a shudder. "It's Tonks."
"-Nymphadora Tonks, who prefers to be known by her surname only," finished Lupin.
"So would you if your fool of a mother had called you 'Nymphadora,' " muttered Tonks. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Stenholm Surname quotes by Joe Dunthorne
#9. After that, we had a short conversation about how your body can sometimes seem totally separate. She said her body can feel like a distant bureaucracy controlled by telegrams from her brain, and I said my body is sometimes like that of Mario Mario, being controlled with a Nintendo joypad. Mario's surname is Mario. #Quote by Joe Dunthorne
Stenholm Surname quotes by Frank Beddor
#10. Molly wants to know her father's name," Arch said to them. "Why don't you give her a hint?"
His first name with 'splatter,'" said Ripkins.
And 'matter'," said Blister.
Also 'fatter,'" said Ripkins.
Likewise 'chatter'," added Blister.
And his surname?" Arch asked.
It rhymes with 'that again'," said Ripkins.
And 'Flanagan," put in Blister.
Also, um ... 'pad a fin'?" offered Ripkins.
Arch and Blister looked at him.
'Pannikin!'" he said proudly.
Shut up, shut up, shut up!" Molly screamed. "You don't know what you're talking about! #Quote by Frank Beddor
Stenholm Surname quotes by Jimmy Tudeski
#11. Hence, why Tudeski is only my pen name (stage name – made up name) and I don't use my real surname when I write anything any longer. Clever of me, right? No, not really, my real surname got fucked over by critics long before I actually found out an author could use a pretend name – I just believe it's Tudeski's turn to take some of this shit now! #Quote by Jimmy Tudeski
Stenholm Surname quotes by Peter David
#12. And then there is the matter of Fagin, routinely referred to as "the Jew." I needn't remind you that this was back in the day when the mere act of not being a Christian was to make one suspect, if not an outright potential criminal. These, of course, are far more enlightened times, when it is only acceptable to believe that not being a Christian is likely to mean one is a criminal only if one is a Muslim (or at least so we've been assured by people who claim to know such things), and therefore we shall refer to Fagin merely by his surname. #Quote by Peter David
Stenholm Surname quotes by Jonathan Swift
#13. When a man is made a spiritual peer he loses his surname; when a temporal, his Christian name. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Stenholm Surname quotes by Elinor Lipman
#14. I hadn't known up to that moment that I had a surname that was recognizably Jewish, or that people named Marx would be unwelcome somewhere in the United States because of it. #Quote by Elinor Lipman
Stenholm Surname quotes by Christos Rodoulla Tsiailis
#15. My surname for a mask to pretend!
I have no stand to protest,
but I will find it (in the poem 'Tatiana Naturova at Time's End' in the collection 'The Green Divorce') #Quote by Christos Rodoulla Tsiailis
Stenholm Surname quotes by Christine Kenneally
#16. Most curious is the way that Y/surname patterns differ between countries. In Britain, on average, a man who has the same surname as another is significantly more likely to have a similar Y chromosome, and therefore a common ancestor, than he would with someone of a different surname. But there's a twist: The Y similarity depends on the frequency of the surname within the population. If you are a Smith, for example, the rule does not apply. #Quote by Christine Kenneally
Stenholm Surname quotes by Kel Kade
#17. I am Reaylin de Voss," she said smugly, as if he should recognize her surname. He did not, which meant her family was not particularly wealthy, powerful or influential. "Well, #Quote by Kel Kade
Stenholm Surname quotes by Nick Lane
#18. Mitochondrial genes act like a female surname, which enables us to trace our ancestry down the female line in the way some families try to trace their descent down the male line from William the Conqueror, or Noah, or Mohammed. #Quote by Nick Lane
Stenholm Surname quotes by Marcel Proust
#19. It was with an unusual intensity of pleasure, a pleasure destined to have a lasting effect on him, that Swann remarked Odette's resemblance to the Zipporah of that Alessandro de Mariano to whom more people willingly give his popular surname, Botticelli, now that it suggests not so much the actual work of the Master as that false and banal conception of it which has of late obtained common currency. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Stenholm Surname quotes by Bill Bryson
#20. Even so, as was his custom, he writes the name in an abbreviated form: "Wllm Shaksp." It also has a large blot on the end of the surname, probably because of the comparatively low quality of the paper. Though it is only a deposition, it is also the only document in existence containing a transcript of Shakespeare speaking in his own voice. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Stenholm Surname quotes by Zoe Saldana
#21. Fathers, sons, brothers, men everywhere: Your legacy will not perish if you take your partner's surname, or she keeps hers. #Quote by Zoe Saldana
Stenholm Surname quotes by Kangana Ranaut
#22. When I left my home to become an actress, my father didn't give me a single penny. I struggled a lot, and they had no idea what I went through. My grandfather even asked me to drop my surname when he learnt I was joining films. #Quote by Kangana Ranaut
Stenholm Surname quotes by Arundhati Roy
#23. For the Time Being they had no surname because Ammu was considering reverting to her maiden name, though she said that choosing between her husband's name and her fathers name didn't give a woman much of a choice. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Stenholm Surname quotes by Tamara Ecclestone
#24. I'm aware people will think I've had an easy way into a dream career. My view is, if anyone has opportunities, they'll take them. My surname opens doors, but those doors will slam firmly if I'm no good. #Quote by Tamara Ecclestone
Stenholm Surname quotes by Victor Pelevin
#25. There's a scientific hypothesis that every person's name is a primary suggestive command that contains the entire script of their life in highly concentrated form ... According to this point of view, there is only a limited number of names, because society only needs a limited number of human types. Just a few models of worker and warrior ants, if I could put it like that. And everybody's psyche is preprogrammed at a basic level by the associative semantic fields that their first name and surname activate. #Quote by Victor Pelevin
Stenholm Surname quotes by Stephen Fry
#26. The Listener's editor when I first joined was Russell Twisk, a surname of such surpassing beauty that I would have written pieces for him if he had been at the helm of Satanic Child-Slaughter Monthly. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Stenholm Surname quotes by Cynthia Ozick
#27. I read in desperate snatches in the interstices of the Quotidian, and dream of finding three uninterrupted quiet hours to think, moon, mentally maunder, and, above all, write. I am pursued by an anti-Muse; her name is Life. Her homely multisyllabic surname is often left unenunciated, but to certain initiates it may be whispered: Exigency. #Quote by Cynthia Ozick
Stenholm Surname quotes by Ilona Boniwell
#28. Psychologists call these fully absorbing experiences flow
states, which were discovered and named by a world-famous psychologist
with the most unpronounceable surname I have ever encountered –
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. #Quote by Ilona Boniwell
Stenholm Surname quotes by Mahmoud Darwish
#29. Put it on record
--I am an Arab
And the number of my card is fifty thousand
I have eight children
And the ninth is due after summer.
What's there to be angry about?

Put it on record.
--I am an Arab
Working with comrades of toil in a quarry.
I have eight childern
For them I wrest the loaf of bread,
The clothes and exercise books
From the rocks
And beg for no alms at your doors,
--Lower not myself at your doorstep.
--What's there to be angry about?

Put it on record.
--I am an Arab.
I am a name without a tide,
Patient in a country where everything
Lives in a whirlpool of anger.
--My roots
--Took hold before the birth of time
--Before the burgeoning of the ages,
--Before cypess and olive trees,
--Before the proliferation of weeds.

My father is from the family of the plough
--Not from highborn nobles.
And my grandfather was a peasant
--Without line or genealogy.
My house is a watchman's hut
--Made of sticks and reeds.
Does my status satisfy you?
--I am a name without a surname.

Put it on Record.
--I am an Arab.
Color of hair: jet black.
Color of eyes: brown.
My distinguishing features:
--On my head the 'iqal cords over a keffiyeh
--Scratching him who touches it.
My address:
--I'm from a village, remote, forgotten,
--Its streets without name
#Quote by Mahmoud Darwish
Stenholm Surname quotes by Robin Klein
#30. I could take Lennie's surname, now that he was going to be my stepfather.
I thought about that. And yelped.
'What's the matter, Yuk?' Alison called from the next shower cubicle.
'Grubb!' I howled. 'Lennie's last name is Grubb! #Quote by Robin Klein

Stenholm Surname quotes by Iain M. Banks
#37. Yes," I said. "Temudjin Oh." I'd long got used to the fact that my Mongolian-extraction surname could cause some amusement amongst English speakers determined to extract a toll of discomfiture from somebody whose name was not as banal or as ugly as theirs. However, there was something about the way she pronounced it that immediately brought a blush to my cheeks. Perhaps the sunset would cover my embarassment. #Quote by Iain M. Banks
Stenholm Surname quotes by Rick Riordan
#38. Reyna marvelled at how peaceful he looked. The worry lines vanished. His face became strangely angelic ... like his surname, di Angelo. She could almost believe he was a regular fourteen-year-old boy, not a son of Hades who had been pulled out of time from the 1940s and forced to endure more tragedy and danger than most demigods would in a lifetime. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Stenholm Surname quotes by Cassandra Clare
#39. Simon had to save the world, and the rest of us get in because we have the right surname?" George asked lightly. He winked at Simon. "Hard luck on you, mate. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Stenholm Surname quotes by Rick Riordan
#40. Congratulations, man. What's her name?"
"Estelle. It was my grandmother's name. Um, on my mom's side, obviously. Not Poseidon's."
"I approve," Alex said. "Old-fashioned and elegant. Estelle Jackson."
"Well, Estelle Blofis," Percy corrected. "My stepdad is Paul Blofis. Not much I can do about that surname, but my little sis is awesome. Five fingers. Five toes. Two eyes. She drools a lot."
"Just like her brother," Annabeth said.
Alex laughed. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Stenholm Surname quotes by Laura Haddock
#41. I see my daft surname as a positive thing. It first dawned on me that I had a comical name when someone called me 'Fishface' on my first day at school. I've heard all the fish jokes since then, many times over. #Quote by Laura Haddock
Stenholm Surname quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#42. I prefer Ms. because it is similar to Mr. A man is Mr. whether married or not, a woman is Ms. whether married or not. So please teach Chizalum that in a truly just society, women should not be expected to make marriage-based changes that men are not expected to make. Here's a nifty solution: Each couple that marries should take on an entirely new surname, chosen however they want as long as both agree to it, so that a day after the wedding, both husband and wife can hold hands and joyfully journey off to the municipal offices to change their passports, driver's licenses, signatures, initials, bank accounts, etc. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Stenholm Surname quotes by Julia Quinn
#43. I cannot feel like a duchess in my
mother's sitting room."
"What do you feel like, then?"
"Hmmm." She took a sip of her tea. "Just Daphne
Bridgerton, I suppose. It's difficult to shed the surname in
this clan. In spirit, that is."
"I hope that is a compliment," Lady Bridgerton remarked.
Daphne just smiled at her mother. "I shall never escape
you, I'm afraid." She turned to Gareth. "There is nothing like one's family to make one feel like one has never
grown up. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Stenholm Surname quotes by David Wong
#44. Wong is the most common surname in the world ... "
" ... John is the most common first name in the world."
"That's right," I said. "And yet there's not a single person named John Wong. I looked it up."
"You know, I work with a John Wong. #Quote by David Wong
Stenholm Surname quotes by Helen Oyeyemi
#45. Not some sham family, politely avoiding having to care about one another, but people who would share a surname and the task of weaving a collective meaning into that name. People would support and protect and staunchly cherish one another. #Quote by Helen Oyeyemi
Stenholm Surname quotes by A. Cretan
#46. The other Kant pun, whose use will demonstrate your philistinism, mispronounces the Königsbergian's surname to echo a crass word for the female pudenda. #Quote by A. Cretan
Stenholm Surname quotes by Muriel Spark
#47. Try as i do, i can't recall her surname. Indeed, her very abstractedness and insubstantial personality seemed to say 'forget me'; she seemed to live in parenthesis; ... #Quote by Muriel Spark
Stenholm Surname quotes by Gemma Files
#48. So many individuals in different places, all with the same good idea. All, in their own ways, attempting to use light on a wall to open a window into another world. And how odd is it that the two guys who made the first viable motion picture happened to have a surname that means "light"? Still just coincidence? #Quote by Gemma Files
Stenholm Surname quotes by Russell T. Davies

Rose: Bad breath!
Harriet Jones: That's it!
The Doctor: Calcium decay! Now that narrows it down! Calcium phosphate. Organic calcium - living calcium - creatures made out of living calcium, what else? What else? Hyphenated surname! YES! That narrows it down to one planet: Raxacoricofallapatorius!
Mickey Smith: [dryly] Oh yeah, great. We can write 'em a letter! #Quote by Russell T. Davies
