I can't imagine what he was thinking to hide a thing like that from you.
She would like to have so much attention.
But I don't know anything about dressing or acting like a lady.
Now it seemed more like a vacation.
Well, whatever we do, I'd like to do it as a family.
It seems like you've become the resident veterinarian and the vacation is over.
Of course, she knew Alex well enough now to know he didn't like people to hand out information about him.
Around it were arranged, like the five points of a star, the other five brilliant balls; one being rose colored, one violet, one yellow, one blue and one orange.
Far up in the air was an object that looked like a balloon.
"But won't they be veg'table, like everything else here?" asked the kitten.
The sides of the tunnel showed before them like the inside of a long spy-glass, and the floor became more level.
The mountain before them was shaped like a cone and was so tall that its point was lost in the clouds.
They were tower-like in shape and the best of them seemed old and weather-worn; yet all were strong and substantial.
"Tell us, dear, what do the creatures look like?" she asked, addressing her pet.
The people did not like this.
Like a bird let loose, his horse leaped forward.
At last he saw something in the darkness that looked like two balls of fire.
He was dressed plainly, and, with his reddish-brown hair and mud-bespattered face, looked like a hard- working countryman just in from the backwoods.
He does not like to do anything else.
Oh, mother, I would like to know everything.
He was not petted and spoiled like many other princes.
I don't use history to predict the future, like some talisman that lets me pick winning lottery numbers (don't I wish).
The Internet does not, like the car, have a single essence.
But in some ways, it's like antique furniture.
That is true from one end of the spectrum, with Bill Gates and Warren Buffet calling on the wealthy to give away half of all of their wealth, to the success of initiatives like "Tom's Shoes," where a pair of shoes is donated in the developing world for each pair you buy.
Statistics like this are generally not rigorously calculated.
So the salesperson says, "If you like that suit, then come over here and try this one from Ralph Lauren."
I like this goal, and I would like to do it as well, but in bits, not bites.
We read together, "As You Like It," Burke's "Speech on Conciliation with America," and Macaulay's "Life of Samuel Johnson."
I did not like his plan, for I wished to enter college with my class.
Debarred from the great highways of knowledge, I was compelled to make the journey across country by unfrequented roads--that was all; and I knew that in college there were many bypaths where I could touch hands with girls who were thinking, loving and struggling like me.
The words rush through my hand like hounds in pursuit of a hare which they often miss.
They fly hither and thither in my thought like blind birds beating the air with ineffectual wings.
But when a great scholar like Professor Kittredge interprets what the master said, it is "as if new sight were given the blind."
A thousand odds and ends of knowledge come crashing about my head like hailstones, and when I try to escape them, theme-goblins and college nixies of all sorts pursue me, until I wish--oh, may I be forgiven the wicked wish!--that I might smash the idols I came to worship.
On the 1st of April it rained and melted the ice, and in the early part of the day, which was very foggy, I heard a stray goose groping about over the pond and cackling as if lost, or like the spirit of the fog.
But alas! we do like cowbirds and cuckoos, which lay their eggs in nests which other birds have built, and cheer no traveller with their chattering and unmusical notes.
There is a plenty of such chairs as I like best in the village garrets to be had for taking them away.
The youth may build or plant or sail, only let him not be hindered from doing that which he tells me he would like to do.
If a man has faith, he will co-operate with equal faith everywhere; if he has not faith, he will continue to live like the rest of the world, whatever company he is joined to.
Probably I should not consciously and deliberately forsake my particular calling to do the good which society demands of me, to save the universe from annihilation; and I believe that a like but infinitely greater steadfastness elsewhere is all that now preserves it.
For the first week, whenever I looked out on the pond it impressed me like a tarn high up on the side of a mountain, its bottom far above the surface of other lakes, and, as the sun arose, I saw it throwing off its nightly clothing of mist, and here and there, by degrees, its soft ripples or its smooth reflecting surface was revealed, while the mists, like ghosts, were stealthily withdrawing in every direction into the woods, as at the breaking up of some nocturnal conventicle.
Pierre reaching the house first went into Prince Andrew's study like one quite at home, and from habit immediately lay down on the sofa, took from the shelf the first book that came to his hand (it was Caesar's Commentaries), and resting on his elbow, began reading it in the middle.
As he said this Prince Andrew was less than ever like that Bolkonski who had lolled in Anna Pavlovna's easy chairs and with half-closed eyes had uttered French phrases between his teeth.
Natasha did not like the visitor's tone of condescension to childish things.
How can you torture me and yourself like that, for a mere fancy? said Nicholas taking her hand.
I don't like you to talk like that.
Would you like to kiss me? she whispered almost inaudibly, glancing up at him from under her brows, smiling, and almost crying from excitement.
Yes, I am, but please don't let us do like that....
