Wilds quotes by C.J. Milbrandt
#1. They say that to live in the Wilds, you have to be half-wild yourself. Or at least very brave. And Zane is both. #Quote by C.J. Milbrandt
Wilds quotes by Douglas Murray
#2. Nevertheless, the idea that Europeans have simply stopped having enough children and must as a result ensure that the next generation is comprised of immigrants is a disastrous fallacy for several reasons. The first is because of the mistaken assumption that a country's population should always remain the same or indeed continue rising. The nation states of Europe include some of the most densely populated countries on the planet. It is not at all obvious that the quality of life in these countries will improve if the population continues growing. What is more, when migrants arrive in these countries they move to the big cities, not to the remaining sparsely populated areas. So although among European states Britain, along with Belgium and the Netherlands, is one of the most densely populated countries, England taken on its own would be the second most densely populated country in Europe. Migrants tend not to head to the Highlands of Scotland or the wilds of Dartmoor. And so a constantly increasing population causes population problems in areas that are already suffering housing supply problems and where infrastructure like public transport struggles to keep up with swiftly expanding populations. #Quote by Douglas Murray
Wilds quotes by Meg Cabot
#3. All right, Simon," Gina said, lowering herself into one of the hard plastic chairs that littered the food court. "What were you up to while I was coordinating Ms. Webb's spring wardrobe?"
I held up my bag from Music Town. "I bought a CD," I said lamely.
Gina, appalled, echoed, "A what?"
"A CD." I hadn't even wanted to buy one, but sent out into the wilds of the mall with instructions to return with a new purchase, I had panicked and headed into the first store I saw.
"You know malls give me sensory overload," I said, by way of explanation.
Gina shook her head at me, her copper curls swaying. "You can't really get mad at her," she said to Adam. "She's just so cute. #Quote by Meg Cabot
Wilds quotes by Yann Martel
#4. A zoo is not an ideal place for an animal - of course the best place for a chimp is the wilds of Tanzania - but a good zoo is a decent, acceptable place. Animals are far more flexible than we realize. IF they weren't, they wouldn't have survived. But my opinion about zoos came after research. Initially I had the opinion that most people have, that they are jails. #Quote by Yann Martel
Wilds quotes by Edward Abbey
#5. To all accusations of excessive development the administrators can reply, as they will if pressed hard enough, that they are giving the public what it wants, that their primary duty is to serve the public not preserve the wilds. "Parks are for people" is the public relations slogan, which decoded means that the parks are for people-in-automobiles. Behind the slogan is the assumption that the majority of Americans, exactly like the managers of the tourist industry, expect and demand to see their national parks from the comfort, security and convenience of their automobiles.
Is this assumption correct? Perhaps. Does that justify the continued and increasing erosion of the parks? It does not. #Quote by Edward Abbey
Wilds quotes by Joanna Chambers
#6. There wasn't a bit of innocence or purity in him. He was sinful and cynical. Unapologetic. He cared nothing for the world. He just ate its fruits and roamed its wilds and didn't need anyone. #Quote by Joanna Chambers
Wilds quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#7. It does good to no woman to be flattered [by a man] who does not intend to marry her; and it is madness in all women to let a secret love kindle within them, which, if unreturned and unknown, must devour the life that feeds it; and, if discovered and responded to, must lead, ignis-fatuus-like, into miry wilds whence there is no extrication. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Wilds quotes by Kate Cullen
#8. Take care when wandering about,
in the wilds of the valley and heights of jagged rock.
What a horrific garden of wonderland we have stumbled into;
where a turn of one's heel can lead to flowering jubilation,
and another leads to the twisted and thorny thicket of despair.... #Quote by Kate Cullen
Wilds quotes by Tristan Wilds
#9. What makes 'The Wire' a beautiful story is how true to life it is. In other shows, you have a good guy and a bad guy. In 'The Wire,' bad guys are trying to be good, good guys are doing bad. You have real life. The people who do bad get bad things done to them. #Quote by Tristan Wilds
Wilds quotes by Cindy Williams
#10. Growing up in the country, you're left to the wilds of your imagination. #Quote by Cindy Williams
Wilds quotes by Edward Gorey
#11. I do remember with great pleasure, if not terribly clearly, a play by Richard Foreman with music by Stanley Silverman called Hotel For Criminals, which I saw in a sinisterly suitable mansion in the cultured wilds of western Massachusetts in the summer of 1974, and which could be described as based loosely on Fantomas. #Quote by Edward Gorey
Wilds quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#12. and I looked and looked at her, and knew as clearly as I know I am to die, that I loved her more than anything I had ever seen or imagined on earth, or hoped for anywhere else. She was only the faint violet whiff and dead leaf echo of the nymphet I had rolled myself upon with such cries in the past; an echo on the brink of a russet ravine, with a far wood under a white sky, and brown leaves choking the brook, and one last cricket in the crisp weeds... but thank God it was not that echo alone that I worshipped. What I used to pamper among the tangled vines of my heart, mon grand pch radieux, had dwindled to its essence: sterile and selfish vice, all that I cancelled and cursed. You may jeer at me, and threaten to clear the court, but until I am gagged and halfthrottled, I will shout my poor truth. I insist the world know how much I loved my Lolita, this Lolita, pale and polluted, and big with another's child, but still gray-eyed, still sooty-lashed, still auburn and almond, still Carmencita, still mine; Changeons de vie, ma Carmen, allons vivre quelque, part o nous ne serons jamais spars; Ohio? The wilds of Massachusetts? No matter, even if those eyes of hers would fade to myopic fish, and her nipples swell and crack, and her lovely young velvety delicate delta be tainted and torneven then I would go mad with tenderness at the mere sight of your dear wan face, at the mere sound of your raucous young voice, my Lolita. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Wilds quotes by Hector Hugh Munro
#13. If he had unlimited money at his disposal, he might go into the wilds somewhere and shoot big game. I never know what the big game have done to deserve it, but they do help to deflect the destructive energies of some of our social misfits. #Quote by Hector Hugh Munro
Wilds quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#14. Before London swallowed it whole, Camden Town was the fork in the road best known for a coaching inn called the Mother Red Cap. It served as a last-chance stop for beer, highway robbery and gonorrhoea before heading north into the wilds of Middlesex. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch
Wilds quotes by Yukio Mishima
#15. A feeling of liberation should contain a bracing feeling of negation, in which liberation itself is not negated. In the moment a captive lion steps out of his cage, he possesses a wider world than the lion who has known only the wilds. While he was in captivity, there were only two worlds to him; the world of the cage, and the world outside the cage. Now he is free. He roars. He attacks people. He eats them. yet he is not satisfied, for there is no third world that is neither the world of the cage nor the world outside the cage. Etsuko however, had in her heart not the slightest interest in these matters. Her soul knew nothing but affirmation. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Wilds quotes by John Milton
#16. Tis chastity, my brother, chastity; She that has that is clad in complete steel, And, like a quiver'd nymph with arrows keen, May trace huge forests, and unharbour'd heaths, Infamous hills, and sandy perilous wilds; Where, through the sacred rays of chastity, No savage fierce, bandite, or mountaineer, Will dare to soil her virgin purity. #Quote by John Milton
Wilds quotes by T.J. Klune
#17. Mark my words," she said, eyes on me. "You will sing brigaki djilia by the time this is over. The songs of sorrow. The mulo will come for you, Sam of Wilds. The spirits of the dead will haunt you when this is said and done. You will live only to die alone with just the memories of your failures to usher you through the veil."
"Yeah," Kevin said. "You seem like you'd be fun at parties. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Wilds quotes by Tristan Wilds
#18. Finding out the truth is only half of it. It's what you do with it that matters. #Quote by Tristan Wilds
Wilds quotes by John Muir
#19. If I should be fated to walk no more with Nature, be compelled to leave all I most devoutly love in the wilderness, return to civilization and be twisted into the characterless cable of society, then these sweet, free, cumberless rovings will be as chinks and slits on life's horizon, through which I may obtain glimpses of the treasures that lie in God's wilds beyond my reach. #Quote by John Muir
Wilds quotes by Michelle Paver
#20. I would love to live in the wilds of nowhere, and when writing 'Chronicles,' I would occasionally rent a cottage in the middle of nowhere that had no mobile reception, but I'm not about to move away from my family. #Quote by Michelle Paver
Wilds quotes by Douglas Tompkins
#21. For those of us (those that have the desire to explore the world unknown) that grew up going out into the wilds of the world ... we got into our souls a sense of beauty. #Quote by Douglas Tompkins
Wilds quotes by Lauren Oliver
#22. But no. I'm the one screaming. I am screaming as I run. I am screaming when the first bomb falls, and the Wilds turn to fire around #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Wilds quotes by Robert B. Reich
#23. There can be no "free market" without government. The "free market" does not exist in the wilds beyond the reach of civilization. Competition in the wild is a contest for survival in which the largest and strongest typically win. Civilization, by contrast, is defined by rules; rules create markets, and governments generate the rules. #Quote by Robert B. Reich
Wilds quotes by Jean Toomer
#24. The Gods Are Here"

This is no mountain
But a house,
No rock of solitude
But a family chair,
No wilds
But life appearing
As life anywhere domesticated,
Yet I know the gods are here,
And that if I touch them
I will arise
And take majesty into the kitchen. #Quote by Jean Toomer
Wilds quotes by David Mamet
#25. You know, I once read an interesting book which said that, uh, most people lost in the wilds, they, they die of shame. Yeah, see, they die of shame. 'What did I do wrong? How could I have gotten myself into this?' And so they sit there and they ... die. Because they didn't do the one thing that would save their lives. Thinking. #Quote by David Mamet
Wilds quotes by Kristen Ashley
#26. The Coffee Guy, whose name is Rosie by the way, has moved to El Salvador.' I lied.
This was not met with happy noises.
'He's turned his back on coffee and is in the wilds of Central America building houses for the poor. I think we should all take a moment away from our quest for coffee-satisfaction and think about this noble decision. As you clamor for caffeine and curse the hard-working but innocent staff at my store, Rosie is sitting in the bed of a beat-up pickup bumping across roads to make one room homes out of mud for those who have nothing at all #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Wilds quotes by Tristan Wilds
#27. Well, I write a lot of poetry - that's where it usually all starts. I definitely want to show you guys sides of me - love, loss, heartbreak - all of that good stuff! #Quote by Tristan Wilds
Wilds quotes by Jack Whiteside Parsons
#28. No doubt you will be delighted to hear from an adept who has undertaken the operation of his H.G.A. in accord with our traditions.

The operation began auspiciously with a chromatic display of psychosomatic symptoms, and progressed rapidly to acute psychosis. The operator has alternated satisfactorily between manic hysteria and depressing melancholy stupor on approximately 40 cycles, and satisfactory progress has been maintained in social ostracism, economic collapses and mental disassociation.

These statements are mentioned not in any vainglorious spirit of conceit, but rather that they may serve as comfort and inspiration to other aspirants on the Path.

Now I'm off to the wilds of Mexico for a period, also in pursuit of the elusive H.G.A. before winding up in the guard finally via the booby hotels, the graveyard, or - ? If the final, you can tell all the little Practicuses that I wouldn't have missed it for anything.

- No one. Once called 210 #Quote by Jack Whiteside Parsons
Wilds quotes by Jack Kerouac
#29. And it's finally only in the woods you get that nostalgia for "cities" at last, you dream of long gray journeys to cities where soft evenings'll unfold like Paris but never seeing how sickening it will be because of the primordial innocence of health and stillnes in the wilds- So I tell myself "Be Wise. #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Wilds quotes by T.J. Klune
#30. Morgan said, "And what have you brought me?"
"Something unexpected," Sam said proudly.
"You return from the wilds with a half-giant and a unicorn," Morgan said. "That is very unexpected."
But the boy shook his head. "That's not the unexpected part."
Morgan, in his infinite wisdom, said, "Oh?"
"I went into the wilds alone, and I returned with friends," Sam said. "I've never had a friend on my own before. And now I have two. Unexpectedly. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Wilds quotes by Lauren Oliver
#31. And then she left, and it broke my heart so completely I could hardly breathe. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Wilds quotes by Mark Lawrence
#32. Let the wilds temper you, and if you weather it, in time the prodigal will return, a viper to his father's bosom. Pawn takes king. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Wilds quotes by Karen Ranney
#33. What were her abilities? She played the pianoforte passably well even though it didn't interest her. She loved to read and could spend the rest of her life in a library. She'd written a book, and her imagination was such that she could transport herself from the wilds of Scotland to anywhere. #Quote by Karen Ranney
Wilds quotes by Tristan Wilds
#34. When I was 17, I was always hanging out with the older kids, and a lot of times, the kids that graduated would come back and play pranks. I was a huge, huge, huge prankster. #Quote by Tristan Wilds
Wilds quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#35. By Fortune's adverse buffets overborne
To solitude I fled, to wilds forlorn,
And not in utter loneliness to live,
Myself at last did to the Devil give! #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Wilds quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#36. One day some as yet unborn scholar will recognize in the clock the machine that has tamed the wilds. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Wilds quotes by Lauren Oliver
#37. It's the rule of the wilds. You must be bigger, and stronger, and tougher. A coldness radiates through me, a solid wall that is growing, piece by piece, in my chest. He doesn't love me. He never loved me. It was all a lie. "The old Lena is dead." I say, and then push past him. Each step is more difficult than the last; the heaviness fills me and turns my limbs to stone. You must hurt or be hurt. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Wilds quotes by T.J. Klune
#38. It's you," I said, not able to look away. "It's how I feel when I'm with you. How I think I've always felt. You're my lightning-struck heart. It doesn't matter about the cornerstone. It doesn't matter about who I am or who you are. Not to me. I think it would have always been this way for me. Even if we had never escaped the slums. Ever since the beginning. Ever since I've known you, you've struck my heart, and now I have to let you go because you're not mine to keep. I need someone that I can be strong for. But I need someone who can also be strong for me. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Wilds quotes by Sigurd F. Olson
#39. Simplicity in all things is the secret of the wilderness and one of its most valuable lessons. It is what we leave behind that is important. I think the matter of simplicity goes further than just food, equipment, and unnecessary gadgets; it goes into the matter of thoughts and objectives as well. When in the wilds, we must not carry our problems with us or the joy is lost. #Quote by Sigurd F. Olson
Wilds quotes by Patrick DeWitt
#40. It would seem to me that the solitude of working in the wilds is not healthy for a man. #Quote by Patrick DeWitt
Wilds quotes by Joan Rice
#41. Yesterday evening Mickey and I and other deluded WAAFs went through the blackout and into the wilds of Hammersmith enduring the journey with the thought of the rollicking, witty West End show, Broadway Follies, studded with stars, to which we WAAFs had been invited free. I might say frightful, I might say terrible, awful, boring, tedious, but they only reveal the inadequacy of words. After the third hour, or so it seemed, I was convinced that I had died and was in hell, watching turn after turn in unending procession, each longer, each less funny, each more unbelievably bad than the last. During the interval, Hendon WAAFs rushed to the bar, scruffy WAAFs, obviously from West Drayton, sat still rollicking with mirth in the Stalls. We tossed back whisky and ginger beer and watched in a stupor the longer, duller, apparently unending second half. After came the journey back in the blackout made blue by our opinions of the evening. #Quote by Joan Rice
Wilds quotes by Estwick Evans
#42. I wished to acquire the simplicity, native feelings, and virtues of savage life; to divest myself of the factitious habits, prejudices and imperfections of civilization; ... and to find, amidst the solitude and grandeur of the western wilds, more correct views of human nature and of the true interests of man. The season of snows was preferred, that I might experience the pleasure of suffering, and the novelty of danger. #Quote by Estwick Evans
Wilds quotes by Gin Getz
#43. Wilds whisper, yet I long for their roar. #Quote by Gin Getz
Wilds quotes by Mark Twain
#44. Heir did go to America, with the Fairfax heir or about the same time - but disappeared - somewhere in the wilds of Virginia, got married, end began to breed savages for the Claimant #Quote by Mark Twain
Wilds quotes by Leylah Attar
#45. I knew that whenever I thought of love, it would have a face, a name, a voice. And I would hear its heart beating from inside a tent in the wilds of Africa. #Quote by Leylah Attar
Wilds quotes by Tristan Wilds
#46. I get offered a lot of black roles, because apparently I don't look Latino enough. #Quote by Tristan Wilds
Wilds quotes by Herman Melville
#47. In glades they meet skull after skull/Where pine-cones lay
the rusted gun,/Green shoes full of bones, the mouldering coat/And cuddled-up skeleton;/And scores of such. Some start as in dreams,/And comrades lost bemoan:/By the edge of those wilds Stonewall had charged
/But the Year and the Man were gone. ("The Armies of the Wilderness") #Quote by Herman Melville
Wilds quotes by Lauren Oliver
#48. This is not what I wantef. This is not why I came to the Wilds, why Alex wanted me to come: not to turn my back and bury the people I care about, and build myself hard and careless on top of their bodies, as Raven does. This is what Zombies do. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Wilds quotes by Robert  Barclay
#49. Mankind has often enforced a savage dominance over the horse, and for that he should apologize. These magnificent beasts toiled mightily over the centuries to help us tame the wilds, plow and harvest our fields, transport our possessions, even die in our wars; and sometimes under the cruelest of masters. I am proud to say that i never participated in their abject slavery. Even so, i humbly request forgiveness from every horse that has crossed my path, for they are TRULY God's noblest creatures. #Quote by Robert Barclay
Wilds quotes by Trisha Leigh
#50. We don't quesiton the Others.
They rule Earth, maintain order, protect us from the Wilds, But the are not us.
They are Other. #Quote by Trisha Leigh
Wilds quotes by Tristan Wilds
#51. I love L.A. - don't get me wrong. But I miss everything about New York. I don't eat cheese, but I miss the smell of pizza in the city. I'm a really big fan of Latino food. I want to go back home and have some good arroz con pollo. #Quote by Tristan Wilds
Wilds quotes by Diane Duane
#52. At any rate, after five years Surak came out of the wilds, took a small apartment in the capital, near his parents' house, and began to write for the information networks. #Quote by Diane Duane
Wilds quotes by Gary Paulsen
#53. I am happiest in the brush and by myself - whether that's the woods of northern Minnesota or the wilds of Alaska behind a dogteam, picking through the foothills of the mountains by my ranch in New Mexico on horseback, or on the ship of my sailboat on the Pacific - so I guess it made sense to me that both Brian and Samuel would find their challenges and adventures, if that's what you call them, in the woods. #Quote by Gary Paulsen
Wilds quotes by Jean Burden
#54. Prowling his own quiet backyard or asleep by the fire, he is still only a whisker away from the wilds. #Quote by Jean Burden
Wilds quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#55. Alas, Experience! No other mentor has so wasted and frozen a face as yours, none wears a robe so black, none bears a rod so heavy, none with hand so inexorable draws the novice so sternly to his task, and forces him with authority so resistless to its acquirement. It is by your instructions alone that man or woman can ever find a safe track through life's wilds; without it, how they stumble, how they stray! On what forbidden grounds do they intrude, down what dread declivities are they hurled! #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Wilds quotes by Tristan Wilds
#56. 'True Blood' is amazing. I have to give a shout out to 'Melrose Place' because I do watch. I love 'Entourage.' One of my favorite shows back in the day was 'Friday Night Lights.' #Quote by Tristan Wilds
Wilds quotes by J.  Daniels
#57. I fell in love with Wild's voice in my ear. Now I had her in my arms while she was giving it to me, and I was out of my fucking mind lost for this girl. There was no turning back.
I'd be anything she needed. I'd be everything she needed. #Quote by J. Daniels
Wilds quotes by Ken Ilgunas
#58. We have trains to hop, voyages to embark on, and rides to hitch. And then there's the great American wild - vanishing but still there - ready to impart its wisdom from an Alaskan peak or a patch of grass growing in a crack of a city sidewalk. And no matter how much sprawl and civilization overtake our wilds, we'll always have the boundless wildlands in ourselves to explore. #Quote by Ken Ilgunas
Wilds quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#59. Logen ambled over to him. If you're going to travel with a man, and maybe fight alongside him, it's best to talk, and laugh if you can. That way you can get an understanding, and then a trust. Trust is what binds a band together, and out there in the wilds that can make the difference between living or dying. Building that kind of trust takes time, and effort. Logen reckoned it was best to get started early, and today he had good humour to spare, so he stood next to Luthar and looked out at the park, trying to dream up some common ground in which to plant the seeds of an unlikely friendship. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Wilds quotes by Meghan Cox Gurdon
#60. By setting aside time every day, we can leave the pixelated wilds and rest at least for a little while in a place of unplugged, authentic human connection. #Quote by Meghan Cox Gurdon
Wilds quotes by David Levithan
#61. One of the many horrible things about dying the way we died was the way it robbed us of the outdoor world and trapped us in the indoor world. For every one of us who was able to die peacefully on a deck chair, blanket pulled high, as the wind stirred his hair and the sun warmed his face, there were hundreds of us whose last glimpse of the world was white walls and metal machinery, the tease of a window, the inadequate flowers in a vase, elected representatives from the wilds we had lost. Our last breaths were of climate-controlled air. We died under ceilings. Either the wallpaper goes, or I do. It makes us more grateful now for rivers, more grateful for sky. #Quote by David Levithan
Wilds quotes by Michael Gray Calvert
#62. To be relaxed is to stand amid the wilds birds and be taken for granted. #Quote by Michael Gray Calvert
Wilds quotes by Leslie Jamison
#63. That the hardship facilitates a shared solitude, an utter isolation that has been experienced before, by others, and will be experienced again, that these others are present in spirit even if the wilds have tamed or aged or brutalized or otherwise removed their bodies. #Quote by Leslie Jamison
Wilds quotes by Kathleen Kent
#64. I would move the earth to save your mother. D'ye hear me, Sarah? I would tear down the walls of her jail and carry her to the wilds of Maine, but it is not what she wants. She will throw herself at her judges because she believes that her innocence will show through all the lies and deceptions ... She humbles me with her strength. #Quote by Kathleen Kent
Wilds quotes by Elliott Merrick
#65. To work hard and then loaf; to know hardship and then luxury, to learn about society and then color it with a dash of the wilds-is there anything quite so fine? #Quote by Elliott Merrick
Wilds quotes by Aldo Leopold
#66. The rich diversity of the world's cultures reflects a corresponding diversity in the wilds that gave them birth. #Quote by Aldo Leopold
Wilds quotes by Richard Allen
#67. Whereas our ancestors (not of choice) were the first successful cultivators of the wilds of America, we their descendants feel ourselves entitled to participate in the blessings of her luxuriant soil. #Quote by Richard Allen
Wilds quotes by Lauren Oliver
#68. They haven't killed us yet, I say, and I imagine that one day I will fly a plane over Portland, over Rochester, over every fenced-in city in the whole country, and I will bomb and bomb and bomb, and watch all their buildings smoldering to dust, and all those people melting and bleeding into flame, and I will see how they like it.
If you take, we will take back. Steal from us, and we will rob you blind. When you squeeze, we will hit.
This is the way the world is made now. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Wilds quotes by Judith McNaught
#69. At the moment, however, she had an ever larger problem: what to do now, when two defenseless women were completely lost in the wilds of Scotland, at night, in the rain and cold.
Shuffling footsteps sounded on the gravel path, and both women straightened, both suppressing the hope soaring in their breasts and keeping their faces carefully expressionless.
"Well, well, well," Jake boomed. "Glad I caught up with you and-" He lost his thought as he beheld the utterly comic sight of two stiff-backed women seated on a trunk together, prim and proper as you please, beneath a black umbrella in the middle of nowhere. "Uh-where are your horses?"
"We have no horses," Lucinda informed him in a disdainful voice that implied such beasts would have been an intrusion on their tete-a-tete.
"No? How did you get here?"
"A wheeled conveyance carried us to this godforsaken place."
"I see." He lapsed into daunted silence, and Elizabeth started to say something at least slightly pleasant when Lucinda lost her patience.
"You have, I collect, come to urge us to return?"
"Ah-yes. Yes, I have."
"Then do so. We haven't all night." Lucinda's words struck Elizabeth as a bald lie.
When Jake seemed at a loss as to how to go about it, Lucinda stood up and assisted him. "I gather Mr. Thornton is extremely regretful for his unforgivable and inexcusable behavior?"
"Well, yes, I guess that's the way it is. In a way."
"No doubt he intends to tell us that #Quote by Judith McNaught
Wilds quotes by Stephen R. Bown
#70. Amundsen slept with his window wide open at night even in the winter, claiming to his mother that he loved fresh air, but really "it was a part of my hardening process." He organized small expeditions for himself and a few friends, such as overnight treks on skis under a star-studded sky, enlivened by the otherworldly swirling of the aurora borealis, into the winter wilds to improve his toughness. #Quote by Stephen R. Bown
Wilds quotes by Lou Reed
#71. Sometimes, you've got to be in a place. You're just another guy. You can just blend in. I live out in the wilds of nowhere, out in Jersey. Even there, there's sometimes problems. College students like journey out there and show up at 11 o'clock at night, on my porch, looking into the door not saying anything. My wife and I are sitting there; it's really creepy. #Quote by Lou Reed
Wilds quotes by Robert Baden-Powell
#72. True Scouts are the best friends of animals, for from living in the woods and wilds, and practising observation and tracking, they get to know more than other people about the ways and habits of birds and animals, and therefore they understand them and are more in sympathy with them. #Quote by Robert Baden-Powell
Wilds quotes by Donna Augustine
#73. What's worse than dead? Is there a new ranking system in the Wilds I'm unaware of? #Quote by Donna Augustine
Wilds quotes by Clive Barker
#74. We have great cities to visit: New York and Washington, Paris and London; and further east, and older than any of these, the legendary city of Samarkand, whose crumbling palaces and mosques still welcome travelers on the Silk road. Weary of cities? Then we'll take to the wilds. To the islands of Hawaii and the mountains of Japan, to forests where Civil War dead still lie, and stretches of sea no mariner ever crossed. They all have their poetry: the glittering cities and the ruined, the watery wastes and the dusty; I want to show you them all. I want to show you everything. #Quote by Clive Barker
Wilds quotes by Mark Twain
#75. Whoo-oop! I'm the old original iron-jawed, brass-mounted, copper-bellied corpse-maker from the wilds of Arkansaw! - Look at me! I'm the man they call Sudden Death and General Desolation! Sired by a hurricane, dam'd by an earthquake, half-brother to the cholera, nearly related to the small-pox on the mother's side! Look at me! I take nineteen alligators and a bar'l of whiskey for breakfast when I'm in robust health, and a bushel of rattlesnakes and a dead body when I'm ailing! I split the everlasting rocks with my glance, and I squench the thunder when I speak! Whoo-oop! Stand back and give me room according to my strength! Blood's my natural drink, and the wails of the dying is music to my ear! Cast your eye on me, gentlemen! - and lay low and hold your breath, for I'm bout to turn myself loose! #Quote by Mark Twain
Wilds quotes by Mira Grant
#76. If you want to go foraging into the wilds of Canada without proper gear, you deserve what you get, even if that happens to include being attacked by an undead moose. #Quote by Mira Grant
Wilds quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#77. I don't have a single callus. Even if I decided to leave title and pride behind, I lack any useful skills. I'm like a milk cow slapped on the backside and turned out of the barn to make her way in the forest. A chicken, returned to the wilds to fend for myself."

"I don't think chicken's have ever been wild," Hadrian said.

"Exactly." Albert paused to stare at the remainder of the salt pork strip. "Your friend is right. This is just prolonging the inevitable. It's a waste. Here." He held out the meat.

"Keep it," Hadrian said, tilting his head at Royce. "I'm supposed to be learning a lesson."

"Oh shut up, the both of you. I have more." Royce pulled another strip of pork from his vest and handed it to Hadrian.

"So that's my miserable story," Albert said. "How about you two?" He looked at Hadrian. "I'm guessing you're his apprentice?"

Hadrian laughed. "No. We're…business partners."

"What line?"

"Procurement," Royce said.

"What kind?"

"Any kind," Royce answered.

Albert stared at them for a moment, then his eyes widened. "You are thieves."

"He is." Hadrian pointed to Royce. "I'm new to this."

"Really? What did you used to do?"

Hadrian thought a moment. "Kill people. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Wilds quotes by Meg Elison
#78. Out in the lost world were hundreds of soldiers who had been sent abroad before the end of it all and could not be brought home. In the wilds of Afghanistan and the ancient cities of Iraq, they were making their way. At bases in Europe, they were holding their ground against the locals only by firepower. When that ran out, they would be taken. Peace corps kids in Africa realized they could not swim home, would never see home again. Tourists all over Asia, the Caribbean, stranded in airports, forgotten in consulates, lived long enough to face the terror of permanence in strange lands. Cruise ships drifted full of plague dead, a few unlucky souls left alive on some. #Quote by Meg Elison
Wilds quotes by T.J. Klune
#79. You just have to believe," I said as I flexed.
"I believe you should work out more if you're going to keep doing that," Gary said. "Because it's making me feel sad for you. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Wilds quotes by Benton MacKaye
#80. A period recourse into the wilds is not a retreat into secret silent sanctums to escape a wicked world, it is to take breath amid effort to forge a better world. #Quote by Benton MacKaye
Wilds quotes by A.W. Tozer
#81. The interior journey of the soul from the wilds of sin into the enjoyed Presence of God is beautifully illustrated in the Old Testament tabernacle. The returning sinner first entered the outer court where he offered a blood sacrifice on the brazen altar and washed himself in the laver that stood near it. Then through a veil he passed into the holy place where no natural light could come, but the golden candlestick which spoke of Jesus the Light of the World threw its soft glow over all. There also was the shewbread to tell of Jesus, the Bread of Life, and the altar of incense, a figure of unceasing prayer. #Quote by A.W. Tozer
Wilds quotes by Nora Sakavic
#82. We've all got different experiences, but we're used to needing help. We're just not used to getting it. But you've got us now. #Quote by Nora Sakavic
Wilds quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#83. What if in Scotland's wilds we viel'd our head, Where tempests whistle round the sordid bed; Where the rug's two-fold use we might display, By night a blanket, and a plaid by day. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Wilds quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#84. To speak the truth, as truth to me appeared, Caused noisy protests, I was hooted down. Such unpleasant incidents occurred That I ran off so as to be alone, Into the wilds. Utterly forsaken, I took at last the Devil for companion. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
