She was uneasy lingering on the events of the past week.
The events of the last few days coupled with the dread of the unknown future were taking their toll.
Events and time do not wait.
She, too, was rattled by the events of the night.
Chain of events, my friend.
She hadn't planned on jumping off her building, but the events of this night made the idea more appealing than having her head severed from her body or ending up a pile of bones in a bathtub.
Dean let him explain the details of his latest roulette system until Fred asked Dean for an update on the events of the day.
Part of him reeled at the turn of events that found him sitting with a man who had never before acknowledged him.
He didn't seem affected by the words, as if whatever wound the events caused was completely gone.
And the nature of this reality again can neither be consistently represented as a fixed and hard substance nor as an unalterable something, but only as a fixed order of recurrence of continually changing events or impressions.
I've pondered the events of those few months so often and so deeply I know if I don't at least commit the experience to paper I'll never move forward.
You could be there, for any events in your past.
If he were to be here, the chain of events set to occur would change, and not for the better, the Watcher interjected.

What if he wasn't strong enough yet to fix the chain-of-events that Wynn had unknowingly started?
I'm still not certain it'll work, but that chain of events is in motion.
The chain-of-events had unfolded the way she planned, except that Gabriel didn't fall into her lap, and she had lost all her power in the process.
The events he spoke of occurred just a few months before, when Darkyn was attacking the Immortals and before Rhyn took over the Council That Was Seven.
She was plotting her return with a chain of events that ended with the human that bore her likeness being turned over to Darkyn.
Recent events forced my hand.
I've been watching the events unfold with no small amount of entertainment.
What he used to be, before the events of the past year.
Every chain of events starts with one push, a catalyst, the perfect mix of different elements that craft a path and make an outcome more likely.
Deidre lay awake in bed for quite a while, sorting through the events of the weekend.
Wynn had missed the events of the past few thousand years, which meant the changes Gabe went through the past few months were mysteries to the Immortal.
I set up the chain of events millennia ago and knew if I could push her enough in one direction, she'd go peacefully over the edge, he said.
It felt good to laugh after the events of the past week.
The deity you were in a past life started the chain of events that put us here by breaking laws from the time-before-time.
Some events seem connected but really aren't.
She was mentally tough but fatigued by the events that occurred since they inadvertently met on a night similar to this one.
Seeing the bet, he decided he wanted to stick around long enough to observe a few more events in the women's futures.
She sobbed, her emotions from the week's events breaking free.
Her comments brought to mind the death of Bird Song's very first guest and the strange events that followed.
No, the events of two weeks past didn't make total sense, at least not yet, but Dean was suddenly interested, not in avoiding Jerome Shipton, but asking him some important questions.
While the night's events were still a bit hazy, her memory was clear enough to feel gratitude towards the man crouched beside her.
Darkyn glanced at the sand in the hourglass. He had one more chain of events to set in motion.
Dean felt it might be better if she talked instead of letting the silence and the upcoming events prey on her mind.
We set this chain of events in motion before the Schism.
Sometimes spontaneous events worked out better than well-planned ones.
The events of this summer had made him acutely aware of mortality, but it had brought on another realization as well.
"Did you just delete all your events today?" she asked.
If Xander hadn't erased the events calendar, she'd know where he'd be so she could search his house for the necklace.
Certain events occurred" he raised an eyebrow at her that made her shake her head "and we got sidetracked."
But, further, every attempt to think clearly what those relations are, what we really mean, if we talk of a fixed order of events, forces upon us the necessity of thinking also that the different things which stand in relations or the different phases which follow each other cannot be merely externally strung together or moved about by some indefinable external power, in the form of some predestination or inexorable fate.
Several minor events of Leo's pontificate are worthy of mention.
I had not heard anyone predict even the possibility of these two events before they came upon us, in what seemed the blink of an eye.
YouTube's contribution to world peace is not simply to add empathy to current events, although that would be enough.
At all events, I slipped down from the bed and nestled close to the fire which had not flickered out.
Today's events mark an epoch, the greatest epoch in our history, he concluded.
Moment by moment the event is imperceptibly shaping itself, and at every moment of this continuous, uninterrupted shaping of events the commander-in-chief is in the midst of a most complex play of intrigues, worries, contingencies, authorities, projects, counsels, threats, and deceptions and is continually obliged to reply to innumerable questions addressed to him, which constantly conflict with one another.
It is very difficult for events to be reflected in their real strength and completeness amid the conditions of court life and far from the scene of action.
General events involuntarily group themselves around some particular incident.
Most of the people at that time paid no attention to the general progress of events but were guided only by their private interests, and they were the very people whose activities at that period were most useful.
Those who tried to understand the general course of events and to take part in it by self-sacrifice and heroism were the most useless members of society, they saw everything upside down, and all they did for the common good turned out to be useless and foolish--like Pierre's and Mamonov's regiments which looted Russian villages, and the lint the young ladies prepared and that never reached the wounded, and so on.
The more closely a man was engaged in the events then taking place in Russia the less did he realize their significance.
He liked to talk and he talked well, adorning his speech with terms of endearment and with folk sayings which Pierre thought he invented himself, but the chief charm of his talk lay in the fact that the commonest events--sometimes just such as Pierre had witnessed without taking notice of them--assumed in Karataev's a character of solemn fitness.
Man's mind cannot grasp the causes of events in their completeness, but the desire to find those causes is implanted in man's soul.
But there are laws directing events, and some of these laws are known to us while we are conscious of others we cannot comprehend.
The Cossack's report, confirmed by horse patrols who were sent out, was the final proof that events had matured.
And running over the events of the day he remembered the French drummer boy.
And without linking up the events of the day or drawing a conclusion from them, Pierre closed his eyes, seeing a vision of the country in summertime mingled with memories of bathing and of the liquid, vibrating globe, and he sank into water so that it closed over his head.
The source of this contradiction lies in the fact that the historians studying the events from the letters of the sovereigns and the generals, from memoirs, reports, projects, and so forth, have attributed to this last period of the war of 1812 an aim that never existed, namely that of cutting off and capturing Napoleon with his marshals and his army.
But how did that old man, alone, in opposition to the general opinion, so truly discern the importance of the people's view of the events that in all his activity he was never once untrue to it?
The source of that extraordinary power of penetrating the meaning of the events then occuring lay in the national feeling which he possessed in full purity and strength.
In the hut which the men had passed, the chief officers had gathered and were in animated talk over their tea about the events of the day and the maneuvers suggested for tomorrow.
The events of the previous year: the burning of Moscow and the flight from it, the death of Prince Andrew, Natasha's despair, Petya's death, and the old countess' grief fell blow after blow on the old count's head.
The answers given by this kind of historian to the question of what force causes events to happen are satisfactory only as long as there is but one historian to each event.
So the historians of this class, by mutually destroying one another's positions, destroy the understanding of the force which produces events, and furnish no reply to history's essential question.
Specialist historians describing the campaign of 1813 or the restoration of the Bourbons plainly assert that these events were produced by the will of Alexander.
And in the same way the universal historians sometimes, when it pleases them and fits in with their theory, say that power is the result of events, and sometimes, when they want to prove something else, say that power produces events.
A third class of historians--the so-called historians of culture-- following the path laid down by the universal historians who sometimes accept writers and ladies as forces producing events--again take that force to be something quite different.
The historians of culture are quite consistent in regard to their progenitors, the writers of universal histories, for if historical events may be explained by the fact that certain persons treated one another in such and such ways, why not explain them by the fact that such and such people wrote such and such books?
But not to speak of the intrinsic quality of histories of this kind (which may possibly even be of use to someone for something) the histories of culture, to which all general histories tend more and more to approximate, are significant from the fact that after seriously and minutely examining various religious, philosophic, and political doctrines as causes of events, as soon as they have to describe an actual historic event such as the campaign of 1812 for instance, they involuntarily describe it as resulting from an exercise of power--and say plainly that that was the result of Napoleon's will.
Having abandoned the conception of the ancients as to the divine subjection of the will of a nation to some chosen man and the subjection of that man's will to the Deity, history cannot without contradictions take a single step till it has chosen one of two things: either a return to the former belief in the direct intervention of the Deity in human affairs or a definite explanation of the meaning of the force producing historical events and termed "power."
And so these historians also see and admit historical events which are exceptions to the theory.
The historians, in accord with the old habit of acknowledging divine intervention in human affairs, want to see the cause of events in the expression of the will of someone endowed with power, but that supposition is not confirmed either by reason or by experience.
On the other hand, even if we admitted that words could be the cause of events, history shows that the expression of the will of historical personages does not in most cases produce any effect, that is to say, their commands are often not executed, and sometimes the very opposite of what they order occurs.
But speaking of commands that are the expression of the will of men acting in time and in relation to one another, to explain the connection of commands with events we must restore: (1) the condition of all that takes place: the continuity of movement in time both of the events and of the person who commands, and (2) the inevitability of the connection between the person commanding and those who execute his command.
Only the expression of the will of the Deity, not dependent on time, can relate to a whole series of events occurring over a period of years or centuries, and only the Deity, independent of everything, can by His sole will determine the direction of humanity's movement; but man acts in time and himself takes part in what occurs.
No command ever appears spontaneously, or itself covers a whole series of occurrences; but each command follows from another, and never refers to a whole series of events but always to one moment only of an event.
Today he ordered such and such papers to be written to Vienna, to Berlin, and to Petersburg; tomorrow such and such decrees and orders to the army, the fleet, the commissariat, and so on and so on--millions of commands, which formed a whole series corresponding to a series of events which brought the French armies into Russia.
All the impossible orders inconsistent with the course of events remain unexecuted.
Only the possible ones get linked up with a consecutive series of commands corresponding to a series of events, and are executed.
Apart from that, the chief source of our error in this matter is due to the fact that in the historical accounts a whole series of innumerable, diverse, and petty events, such for instance as all those which led the French armies to Russia, is generalized into one event in accord with the result produced by that series of events.
Amid a long series of unexecuted orders of Napoleon's one series, for the campaign of 1812, was carried out--not because those orders differed in any way from the other, unexecuted orders but because they coincided with the course of events that led the French army into Russia; just as in stencil work this or that figure comes out not because the color was laid on from this side or in that way, but because it was laid on from all sides over the figure cut in the stencil.
So that examining the relation in time of the commands to the events, we find that a command can never be the cause of the event, but that a certain definite dependence exists between the two.
Having restored the condition of time under which all events occur, we find that a command is executed only when it is related to a corresponding series of events.
History shows us that these justifications of the events have no common sense and are all contradictory, as in the case of killing a man as the result of recognizing his rights, and the killing of millions in Russia for the humiliation of England.
These justifications release those who produce the events from moral responsibility.
Examining only those expressions of the will of historical persons which, as commands, were related to events, historians have assumed that the events depended on those commands.
But examining the events themselves and the connection in which the historical persons stood to the people, we have found that they and their orders were dependent on events.
The recognition of man's free will as something capable of influencing historical events, that is, as not subject to laws, is the same for history as the recognition of a free force moving the heavenly bodies would be for astronomy.
From the standpoint from which the science of history now regards its subject on the path it now follows, seeking the causes of events in man's freewill, a scientific enunciation of those laws is impossible, for however man's free will may be restricted, as soon as we recognize it as a force not subject to law, the existence of law becomes impossible.
The memory was poignant, overshadowed by events that took place after she told Alex she was expecting.
In a preface to a later edition she tells us how the novel came to be written, and, though it anticipates events, this revelation of herself may best be given here.
She is at once transported into the midst of the events of a story.
I was witness to events of a less peaceful character.
We are forced to fall back on fatalism as an explanation of irrational events (that is to say, events the reasonableness of which we do not understand).
The more we try to explain such events in history reasonably, the more unreasonable and incomprehensible do they become to us.
All this is only the coincidence of conditions in which all vital organic and elemental events occur.
In historic events the so-called great men are labels giving names to events, and like labels they have but the smallest connection with the event itself.
He is as right as other historians who look for the explanation of historic events in the will of one man; he is as right as the Russian historians who maintain that Napoleon was drawn to Moscow by the skill of the Russian commanders.
The more he realized the absence of all personal motive in that old man--in whom there seemed to remain only the habit of passions, and in place of an intellect (grouping events and drawing conclusions) only the capacity calmly to contemplate the course of events--the more reassured he was that everything would be as it should.
They were just normal events of his world, a world very unlike her own.
Prince Andrew, being always near the commander in chief, closely following the mass movements and general orders, and constantly studying historical accounts of battles, involuntarily pictured to himself the course of events in the forthcoming action in broad outline.
At all events, there she was, tearing and scratching and biting Viney like some wild thing.
It was one of those afternoons which seem indefinitely long before one, in which many events may happen, a large portion of our natural life, though it was already half spent when I started.
"Really I don't care about that, I don't care at all," said Prince Andrew, beginning to understand that his news of the battle before Krems was really of small importance in view of such events as the fall of Austria's capital.
The chief events of the year 1893 were my trip to Washington during the inauguration of President Cleveland, and visits to Niagara and the World's Fair.
