I'm so glad I have you.
"I don't know," said Zeb, who was still confused.
I have faith only in God and the lofty destiny of our adored monarch.
But I noticed some strawberries growing in one of the gardens, and some melons in another place.
Did I ever tell you that you're the most handsome man I've ever seen?
I can't imagine what he was thinking to hide a thing like that from you.
"I was," she whispered.
I figured you could use the rest.
I thought maybe by now you would have adjusted.
I wish you could hear yourself talking.
But I thought when people got married...
I mean, that they didn't feel this way all the time.
"I don't know," answered the boy, looking around him curiously.
"I will stop you from living and forbid you to be planted," returned the Prince.
"Phoo!" snarled the kitten; "I wouldn't touch the nasty things!"
"So did I," purred the kitten.
"I should say so!" grunted another of the piglets, looking uneasily at the kitten; "cats are cruel things."
"I stopped a minute to give those birds to their mother," he answered.
"I have some pennies," said Benjamin.
I also see the pace of problem solving—and change in general—accelerating at an astonishing rate.
I ceased making the sound "wah-wah" only when I learned to spell the word.

I didn't ask about his family tree.
All I could think about was that I had a living father-in-law.
Though I don't agree with the gentleman...
I imagine," he went on, warming to his subject, "that the Emperor himself would not be satisfied to find in us merely owners of serfs whom we are willing to devote to his service, and chair a canon * we are ready to make of ourselves--and not to obtain from us any co-co-counsel."
"I think that before discussing these questions," Pierre continued, "we should ask the Emperor--most respectfully ask His Majesty--to let us know the number of our troops and the position in which our army and our forces now are, and then..."
In the first place, I tell you we have no right to question the Emperor about that, and secondly, if the Russian nobility had that right, the Emperor could not answer such a question.
"I only said that it would be more to the purpose to make sacrifices when we know what is needed!" said he, trying to be heard above the other voices.
Seeing the position we are in, I think there is little need for discussion.
I never doubted the devotion of the Russian nobles, but today it has surpassed my expectations.
I thank you in the name of the Fatherland!
There are always so many conjectures as to the issue of any event that however it may end there will always be people to say: "I said then that it would be so," quite forgetting that amid their innumerable conjectures many were to quite the contrary effect.
