Widnes Vikings quotes by Drew Magary
#2. My job happens to be sports-related, so it's like my duty to watch football. It's my job. But that's not a change for me. When you're 18, it's life and death, because you don't have a kid, and it's a much bigger deal when you're 18. Having a kid - when the Vikings lost the 2009 NFC title game, it sucked, and I'm not happy about it, but my kid is still alive. You have to have that horrible forced perspective that you don't want. #Quote by Drew Magary

Widnes Vikings quotes by Mark Kurlansky
#5. Butter has the same improbable myth of origin as cheese, that it accidentally got churned in the animal skins of central Asian nomads. Easily spoiled in sunlight, it was a northern food. The Celts and the Vikings, and their descendants, the Normans, are credited with popularizing butter in northern Europe. Southerners remained suspicious and for centuries maintained that the reason more cases of leprosy were found in the north was that northerners ate butter. Health-conscious southern clergy and noblemen, when they had to travel to northern Europe, would guard against the dreaded disease by bringing their own olive oil with them. #Quote by Mark Kurlansky
Widnes Vikings quotes by Tara Brown
#6. Vikings don't have faults, they have clubs. #Quote by Tara Brown
Widnes Vikings quotes by Michael Hirst
#7. I felt that a lot of Viking culture had been caricatured and misconstrued. After all, they were far more democratic than the Saxons and the Francs, who were exercising really hierarchical social structures at that time. The Vikings had popular meetings where everything could be discussed. #Quote by Michael Hirst
Widnes Vikings quotes by John Gimlette
#8. Lawrence Millman is a favorite writer of mine. He did a travels on the trail of the Vikings. #Quote by John Gimlette
Widnes Vikings quotes by Gabriel Byrne

Widnes Vikings quotes by Russell Freedman
#10. The first encounter was when the Vikings came across 10 Indians taking naps under their overturned canoes - and the Vikings killed them. That did not set up a very good mutual relationship. #Quote by Russell Freedman
Widnes Vikings quotes by Baltasar Kormakur
#11. Vikings were pretty brutal, but also very educated people. They were salesmen, businessmen who started raiding when business wasn't good. That's why they had such great boats. #Quote by Baltasar Kormakur
Widnes Vikings quotes by Mark Kurlansky
#12. ONE GROUP OF Vikings remained in Iceland, becoming the Icelanders. A second group remained in the Faroe Islands. The main body of Vikings were given lands in the Seine basin in exchange for protecting Paris. They settled into northern France and within a century were speaking a dialect of French and became known as the Normans. Soon the Vikings had vanished. #Quote by Mark Kurlansky
Widnes Vikings quotes by Victoria Aveyard
#13. I'm a TV junkie, so it's hard to choose just one. Currently I'm a slave to 'Black Sails,' 'Vikings,' 'Game of Thrones' and 'The Mindy Project.' #Quote by Victoria Aveyard
Widnes Vikings quotes by Linnea Hartsuyker
#14. Only death is certain, and even then draugrs walk. #Quote by Linnea Hartsuyker
Widnes Vikings quotes by C.S. Lewis
#15. In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. 'How are we to live in an atomic age?' I am tempted to reply: Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.'

In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways.

We had, indeed, one very great advantage over our ancestors - anesthetics; but we have that still. It is perfectly ridiculous to go about whimpering and drawing long faces because the scientists have added one more chance of painful and premature death to a world which already bristled with such chances… and in which death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty.

This is the first point to be made: and the first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things - praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Widnes Vikings quotes by Johnjoe McFadden
#16. The Vikings could have been saved if they had borrowed survival strategies from the Inuit, but the only record we have of contact between the two peoples is the remark from a Viking settler that the Inuit bleed a lot when stabbed - an observation that hardly indicates a willingness to learn from their northern neighbors. #Quote by Johnjoe McFadden
Widnes Vikings quotes by Morgan Griffith
#17. Climate Change led to the Vikings dominating Europe for several hundred years. #Quote by Morgan Griffith
Widnes Vikings quotes by Heather Day Gilbert
#18. I'm not surprised he wants to challenge me here, where no one can protect me. He thinks I'm a weak woman. He thinks wrong. #Quote by Heather Day Gilbert
Widnes Vikings quotes by Richard Dawkins
#19. Isn't it a remarkable coincidence almost everyone has the same religion as their parents ? And it always just happens to be the right religion. Religions run in families. If we'd been brought up in ancient Greece we would all be worshiping Zeus and Apollo. If we had been born Vikings we would be worshiping Wotan and Thor. How does this come about ? Through childhood indoctrination. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Widnes Vikings quotes by Johanna Lindsey
#20. The Vikings did not believe in leaving their futures to the fates, but in carving their own fates . It was believed the gods would reward those who went forth valiantly to conquer and to gain. Vikings gave no account to meekness, or suffering patience. They fought for what they wanted. Defeat held no honor. #Quote by Johanna Lindsey
Widnes Vikings quotes by Heather Day Gilbert
#21. An uncertain warrior is no warrior at all. #Quote by Heather Day Gilbert
Widnes Vikings quotes by Linus Roache
#22. The Vikings themselves are fascinating creatures. They're human beings, of course, but their ethos are so different from ours. The fact that they live as warriors - their willingness to die for the sake of what they believe in - is quite shocking to us, and it's fascinating to see. #Quote by Linus Roache
Widnes Vikings quotes by Al Franken
#23. I am a Minnesotan, and not just because I root for the Vikings and the Twins. I like the Minnesota-nice sensibility. I like the liberal tradition; I like the Hubert Humphrey tradition fighting for civil rights. #Quote by Al Franken
Widnes Vikings quotes by Josie Litton
#24. Ashamed of what she had thought, Rycca lowered her eyes. "I am sorry."
"For what? Assuming I took the stone by force? But that's what Vikings do, isn't it?"
He sounded exasperated and she could not blame him. But neither was she prepared when he suddenly asked, "Why did you not want us to marry? Because I am Viking?"
She had wondered if he would ask, then decided her reasons would likely mean nothing to him. But he was a man of surprises, this hero of her strange world. And very good at biding his time.
"It is true, I did not wish to wed a Viking."
"Because of what you have heard about us? #Quote by Josie Litton
Widnes Vikings quotes by Michael Hirst
#25. With 'Vikings,' I had the task of making these people interesting and, to a point, sympathetic. #Quote by Michael Hirst
Widnes Vikings quotes by Chris Kluwe
#26. My numbers and my stats were exactly the same. I was doing what the coaches wanted me to do. And what I had been doing up to that point was enough to get me a very well-paying contract with the Vikings ... In my mind there was only one thing that had changed from the year before and the year I got cut: And that was I started speaking out in support of same-sex rights. #Quote by Chris Kluwe
Widnes Vikings quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#27. It's a sun lamp. I thought you might be tired of your pasty-pale complexion. (Chris)
Christopher, I happen to be a Viking in the middle of winter in Minnesota. Lack of a deep tan goes with the whole Nordic territory. Why do you think we raided Europe anyway? (Wulf)
Because it was there? (Chris)
No, we wanted to thaw out. (Wulf) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Widnes Vikings quotes by Bud Grant
#28. First of all the name, and the color purple, I think those two things distinguish the Vikings as much as anything. You go anywhere in the country and say 'Vikings,' they know exactly where you are. You say 'Cardinals,' well, Cardinals who? There are a dozen Cardinals teams in the country in professional and amateur sports. #Quote by Bud Grant
Widnes Vikings quotes by Giles Kristian
#29. My cock has been hiding since the day she arrived," Bjarni had said, but only when he was sure she was out of earshot, which was a full day after she left. "You worry for nothing brother," Bjorn had said, "for even a seiðr-wife (witch) cannot put a spell on something she can't see. It would be like trying to hit a louse with a spear-throw. #Quote by Giles Kristian
Widnes Vikings quotes by George Blagden
#30. The Vikings colonized Britain, and a lot of our modern day towns are named after Viking names that settled these big towns. #Quote by George Blagden
Widnes Vikings quotes by Larry Trask
#31. In the ninth and tenth centuries the Vikings invaded Britain from Scandinavia and settled in large numbers. Their language, which we call Old Norse, was at least partly comprehensible to the English, who did not hesitate to take over hundreds of words from it: skirt, window, scrub, sky, give, hit, kick, scatter, scrape, skill, scowl, score, fellow, want, skin, knife, law, happy, ugly, wrong and even the pronouns they and them. #Quote by Larry Trask
Widnes Vikings quotes by Rick Riordan
#32. Jack followed me around the deck, alternating between Abba hits (Vikings are huge Abba fans) and telling me stories about the old days when he and Frey would roam the Nine Worlds, spreading sunshine and happiness and occasionally killing people. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Widnes Vikings quotes by Roger Avary
#33. What is interesting to me about Vikings is that they were failed farmers. #Quote by Roger Avary
Widnes Vikings quotes by Snorri Sturluson
#34. A sword age, a wind age, a wolf age. No longer is there mercy among men. #Quote by Snorri Sturluson
Widnes Vikings quotes by N.D. Wilson
#35. Columbus was the first to come to the east. Vikings don't count, and neither do all the people who were standing on the beaches and waving when he got here. #Quote by N.D. Wilson
Widnes Vikings quotes by Michael Hirst
#36. If you're in America or Europe, walk for three blocks, and you'll pass about 14 Vikings. Their reach was immense. #Quote by Michael Hirst
Widnes Vikings quotes by Daniel McCoy
#37. It was highly fatalistic, but its fatalism was not one of complacency. It saw life as being ultimately doomed to tragedy, but with the opportunity for grand and noble heroism along the way. The Vikings sought to seize that opportunity, to accomplish as much as they could - and be remembered for it - despite the certainty of the grave and "the wolf." How one met one's fate, whatever that fate happened to be, was what separated honorable and worthy people from the dishonorable and the unworthy. Norse religion and mythology were thoroughly infused with this view. The gods, the "pillars" who held the cosmos together, fought for themselves and their world tirelessly and unflinchingly, even though they knew that in the end the struggle was hopeless, and that the forces Of chaos and entropy would prevail. They went out not with a whimper, but with a bang. This attitude is what made the Vikings the Vikings. #Quote by Daniel McCoy
Widnes Vikings quotes by Heather Day Gilbert
#38. What I did cannot be forgiven, any more than it could have been avoided. #Quote by Heather Day Gilbert
Widnes Vikings quotes by Clive Standen
#39. Women are always murdered and maimed, and they're never given their rightful place as lead characters! And I think [creator Michael Hirst] has just written what should have been written a long time ago. There shouldn't be anything that different about Vikings, but there is, because there've just been so many shows that have not stepped up to the plate and given female actors and female characters equal footing. #Quote by Clive Standen
Widnes Vikings quotes by Ouida
#40. It is the north wind that lashes men into Vikings; it is the soft, luscious south wind which lulls them to lotus dreams. #Quote by Ouida
Widnes Vikings quotes by Krista D. Ball
#41. When a thundering horde of drunken Vikings rush a person, it's only natural to flinch. #Quote by Krista D. Ball
Widnes Vikings quotes by Swizz Beatz
#42. When I was growing up, there were so many things I thought were stylish. Jabo jeans, V Bombers, Clarks, Vikings, Nugget watches, Lee pants with the patches, leather hats - which I still wear now. All hip-hop stuff, all South Bronx stuff. #Quote by Swizz Beatz
