By the way, neither Alex nor I drink.
Give not the merchant nor the fishermen the prize; But give it to that one who is wisest of the wise.
The problem is, you neither asked nor listened.
Nothing earth shattering there, nor anything Yancey would find either threatening or interesting.
Her murder wasn't close to his style nor was she the right age.
Nor did he say anything when she exchanged the guitar for a violin and paid for lessons.
Physically at ease with him, she nonetheless had no idea how to talk to a lover who was neither one she chose nor human.
It wasn't as if she had any part in becoming that way, nor did it make her a better person.
She just rotated to the southwest on orders that neither you nor Jule nor I issued, and the Tucson sites have fallen like flies.
With Yancey's kind, there's no such thing as a mild emotion, neither in anger nor in love.
All of which was neither here nor there.
Neither baseball nor football was available at the small Ouray High School.
You do not know the relief of brushing away a fly that has bitten you, nor the delight of eating delicious food, nor the satisfaction of drawing a long breath of fresh, pure air.
I do not think the importance of YouTube lies in its role as a communication method nor as a fundamentally new means of distribution of media.

His tone was neither harsh nor teasing.
He heard neither the clock nor the birds.
She was already growing impatient, and stamped her foot, ready to cry at his not coming at once, when she heard the young man's discreet steps approaching neither quickly nor slowly.
I could not be eloquent, nor could I frankly mention my doubts to the Brothers and to the Grand Master.
Surely she must feel bitter about that fact, and yet neither her voice nor her expression gave any indication that she felt animosity.
Nor did she want him to see Mary.

Howie was a total wreck and I'm sure neither Quinn nor I was much better.
Neither Betsy nor I saw the broadcast but Quinn and Martha had viewed the showing.
No, and neither Quinn nor Martha are picking up their phones.
She wasn't sure what she expected from him, but she was relieved to see he was neither angry nor sad.
They neither saw nor heard anything, and after negotiating the remaining correctly marked turns, were in sight of daylight.
He had never seen nor heard of sorrow or sickness or poverty.
Then she saw that the child's face was very pale and that he neither opened his eyes nor moved.
"It is well," said he, "that neither a merchant nor a fisherman shall have it; for such men think only of their business and care really nothing for beauty."
Augustine said this could not be the case because he could neither hear Ambrose nor see his lips moving.
Neither sorrow nor regret followed my passionate outburst.
As I have said, I did not study regularly during the early years of my education; nor did I read according to rule.
I did not study nor analyze them--I did not know whether they were well written or not; I never thought about style or authorship.
This did not appear the worst, nor by any means a despicable alternative.
But neither Anna Mikhaylovna nor the footman nor the coachman, who could not help seeing these people, took any notice of them.
Nor had he any money.
Who would have thought he would become attached to a child that was neither his own blood nor male?
I'm sure neither Quinn nor Martha is surprised and Howie is probably asleep.
They followed the course of a broad stream and passed several more pretty cottages; but of course they saw no one, nor did any one speak to them.

In it there would be no suggestion of hatred or revenge, nor a trace of the old-time belief that might makes right.
I am not discouraged, nor am I afraid.
It would, I think, be hard to make her feel just how to pronounce DICTIONARY without her erring either toward DICTIONAYRY or DICTION'RY, and, of course the word is neither one nor the other.
Beside the tomb sits a weary soul, rejoicing neither in the joys of the past nor in the possibilities of the future, but seeking consolation in forgetfulness.
We worship not the Graces, nor the Parcae, but Fashion.
I did not pity the fishes nor the worms.
Neither the hand nor a single muscle of the count's face stirred.
Such a storm of feelings, thoughts, and memories suddenly arose within him that he could not fall asleep, nor even remain in one place, but had to jump up and pace the room with rapid steps.

Naturally neither Natasha nor her parents wished to hear of this, but Prince Andrew was firm.
Nor did she cry when he was gone; but for several days she sat in her room dry-eyed, taking no interest in anything and only saying now and then, "Oh, why did he go away?"
Nicholas did not hear his own cry nor feel that he was galloping, nor see the borzois, nor the ground over which he went: he saw only the wolf, who, increasing her speed, bounded on in the same direction along the hollow.
This isn't the Kosoy meadow nor the Demkin hill, and heaven only knows what it is!
Nor did the latter, having risen and curtsied, know what to do.

This inevitability alone can explain how the cruel Arakcheev, who tore out a grenadier's mustache with his own hands, whose weak nerves rendered him unable to face danger, and who was neither an educated man nor a courtier, was able to maintain his powerful position with Alexander, whose own character was chivalrous, noble, and gentle.
They are neither fit for war nor peace!
The eighth and largest group, which in its enormous numbers was to the others as ninety-nine to one, consisted of men who desired neither peace nor war, neither an advance nor a defensive camp at the Drissa or anywhere else, neither Barclay nor the Emperor, neither Pfuel nor Bennigsen, but only the one most essential thing--as much advantage and pleasure for themselves as possible.
And so he did not like Zdrzhinski's tale, nor did he like Zdrzhinski himself who, with his mustaches extending over his cheeks, bent low over the face of his hearer, as was his habit, and crowded Rostov in the narrow shanty.
The doctors were of use to Natasha because they kissed and rubbed her bump, assuring her that it would soon pass if only the coachman went to the chemist's in the Arbat and got a powder and some pills in a pretty box for a ruble and seventy kopeks, and if she took those powders in boiled water at intervals of precisely two hours, neither more nor less.

He neither saw nor understood anything of the sort.
"I have neither taste nor smell," he remarked, sniffing at his glass.
As soon as the men of the various regiments began to disperse among the wealthy and deserted houses, the army was lost forever and there came into being something nondescript, neither citizens nor soldiers but what are known as marauders.
Moscow when occupied by the enemy did not remain intact like Berlin, Vienna, and other towns, simply because its inhabitants abandoned it and did not welcome the French with bread and salt, nor bring them the keys of the city.
It was plain that l'amour which the Frenchman was so fond of was not that low and simple kind that Pierre had once felt for his wife, nor was it the romantic love stimulated by himself that he experienced for Natasha.
Both the countess and Sonya understood that, naturally, neither Moscow nor the burning of Moscow nor anything else could seem of importance to Natasha.
No, neither death nor anything else can destroy it.

From "Greek Heroes" to the Iliad was no day's journey, nor was it altogether pleasant.
In her account of her early education Miss Keller is not giving a scientifically accurate record of her life, nor even of the important events.
But neither temperament nor training allowed her to make her pupil the object of any experiment or observation which did not help in the child's development.
Neither the length of the word nor the combination of letters seems to make any difference to the child.
During the next two years neither Mr. Anagnos, who was in Europe for a year, nor Miss Sullivan wrote anything about Helen Keller for publication.
It seems worth while, however, to quote from some of her chance bits of writing, which are neither so informal as her letters nor so carefully composed as her story of her life.
My house is not resplendent with ivory and gold; nor is it adorned with marble arches, resting on graceful columns brought from the quarries of distant Africa.
There is not a nail to hang a picture on, nor a shelf to receive the bust of a hero or a saint.
The cart before the horse is neither beautiful nor useful.
But a man has no more to do with the style of architecture of his house than a tortoise with that of its shell: nor need the soldier be so idle as to try to paint the precise color of his virtue on his standard.
They can do without architecture who have no olives nor wines in the cellar.
After all, the man whose horse trots a mile in a minute does not carry the most important messages; he is not an evangelist, nor does he come round eating locusts and wild honey.
Genius is not a retainer to any emperor, nor is its material silver, or gold, or marble, except to a trifling extent.
The moon will not sour milk nor taint meat of mine, nor will the sun injure my furniture or fade my carpet; and if he is sometimes too warm a friend, I find it still better economy to retreat behind some curtain which nature has provided, than to add a single item to the details of housekeeping.
In accumulating property for ourselves or our posterity, in founding a family or a state, or acquiring fame even, we are mortal; but in dealing with truth we are immortal, and need fear no change nor accident.
That time which we really improve, or which is improvable, is neither past, present, nor future.
I do not wish to flatter my townsmen, nor to be flattered by them, for that will not advance either of us.
My days were not days of the week, bearing the stamp of any heathen deity, nor were they minced into hours and fretted by the ticking of a clock; for I lived like the Puri Indians, of whom it is said that "for yesterday, today, and tomorrow they have only one word, and they express the variety of meaning by pointing backward for yesterday forward for tomorrow, and overhead for the passing day."
Nor is there any man so independent on his farm that he can say them nay.
The thick wood is not just at our door, nor the pond, but somewhat is always clearing, familiar and worn by us, appropriated and fenced in some way, and reclaimed from Nature.
He was so simply and naturally humble--if he can be called humble who never aspires--that humility was no distinct quality in him, nor could he conceive of it.
I was never cast away nor distressed in any weather, though I encountered some severe storms.
The fruits do not yield their true flavor to the purchaser of them, nor to him who raises them for the market.
They are similar to those found in rivers; but as there are no suckers nor lampreys here, I know not by what fish they could be made.
The forest has never so good a setting, nor is so distinctly beautiful, as when seen from the middle of a small lake amid hills which rise from the water's edge; for the water in which it is reflected not only makes the best foreground in such a case, but, with its winding shore, the most natural and agreeable boundary to it.
There is no rawness nor imperfection in its edge there, as where the axe has cleared a part, or a cultivated field abuts on it.
I have said that Walden has no visible inlet nor outlet, but it is on the one hand distantly and indirectly related to Flint's Pond, which is more elevated, by a chain of small ponds coming from that quarter, and on the other directly and manifestly to Concord River, which is lower, by a similar chain of ponds through which in some other geological period it may have flowed, and by a little digging, which God forbid, it can be made to flow thither again.
The fruits eaten temperately need not make us ashamed of our appetites, nor interrupt the worthiest pursuits.
The impure can neither stand nor sit with purity.
Every man is the builder of a temple, called his body, to the god he worships, after a style purely his own, nor can he get off by hammering marble instead.
I never learned which party was victorious, nor the cause of the war; but I felt for the rest of that day as if I had had my feelings excited and harrowed by witnessing the struggle, the ferocity and carnage, of a human battle before my door.
But these within the ice are not so numerous nor obvious as those beneath.
But the most luxuriously housed has little to boast of in this respect, nor need we trouble ourselves to speculate how the human race may be at last destroyed.
But no friendly Indian concerned himself about me; nor needed he, for the master of the house was at home.
Nor was it much better by the carriage road from Brister's Hill.
We waded so gently and reverently, or we pulled together so smoothly, that the fishes of thought were not scared from the stream, nor feared any angler on the bank, but came and went grandly, like the clouds which float through the western sky, and the mother-o'-pearl flocks which sometimes form and dissolve there.
In order to see how nearly I could guess, with this experience, at the deepest point in a pond, by observing the outlines of a surface and the character of its shores alone, I made a plan of White Pond, which contains about forty-one acres, and, like this, has no island in it, nor any visible inlet or outlet; and as the line of greatest breadth fell very near the line of least breadth, where two opposite capes approached each other and two opposite bays receded, I ventured to mark a point a short distance from the latter line, but still on the line of greatest length, as the deepest.
It is because they do not obey the hint which God gives them, nor accept the pardon which he freely offers to all.
Punishment and fear were not; nor were threatening words read On suspended brass; nor did the suppliant crowd fear The words of their judge; but were safe without an avenger.
Poison is not poisonous after all, nor are any wounds fatal.
Neither men nor toadstools grow so.
Most have not delved six feet beneath the surface, nor leaped as many above it.
After all, the practical reason why, when the power is once in the hands of the people, a majority are permitted, and for a long period continue, to rule, is not because they are most likely to be in the right, nor because this seems fairest to the minority, but because they are physically the strongest.
A wise man will not leave the right to the mercy of chance, nor wish it to prevail through the power of the majority.
It seemed to me that I never had heard the town-clock strike before, nor the evening sounds of the village; for we slept with the windows open, which were inside the grating.
Tikhon knew that neither the son's arrival nor any other unusual event must be allowed to disturb the appointed order of the day.
Dolokhov looked round but did not say anything, nor did the mocking smile on his lips change.
Rostov shrugged his shoulders as much as to say: "Nor do I, but what's one to do?" and, having given his order, he returned to Telyanin.
It is not exactly stupidity, nor rascality....
"It's not treachery nor rascality nor stupidity: it is just as at Ulm... it is..."--he seemed to be trying to find the right expression.
The dull, sleepy expression was no longer there, nor the affectation of profound thought.
Nor did he say to himself: "Pierre is a rich man, I must entice him to marry my daughter and lend me the forty thousand rubles I need."
Pierre did not look at Helene nor she at him.
Now I know that not because of her alone, nor of myself alone, but because of everyone, it must inevitably come about.
It was not the dress, but the face and whole figure of Princess Mary that was not pretty, but neither Mademoiselle Bourienne nor the little princess felt this; they still thought that if a blue ribbon were placed in the hair, the hair combed up, and the blue scarf arranged lower on the best maroon dress, and so on, all would be well.
Anatole was not quick-witted, nor ready or eloquent in conversation, but he had the faculty, so invaluable in society, of composure and imperturbable self-possession.
She was going straight on through the conservatory, neither seeing nor hearing anything, when suddenly the well-known whispering of Mademoiselle Bourienne aroused her.
Higher up stood some Russian infantry, neither moving forward to protect the battery nor backward with the fleeing crowd.
But neither they nor a single commanding officer were there, only disorganized crowds of troops of various kinds.
He had no lambskin cap on his head, nor had he a loaded whip over his shoulder, as when Rostov had seen him on the eve of the battle of Austerlitz, but wore a tight new uniform with Russian and foreign Orders, and the Star of St. George on his left breast.
He's not among the prisoners nor among the killed!
"Ah, what have you done to me?" it still seemed to say, and Prince Andrew felt that something gave way in his soul and that he was guilty of a sin he could neither remedy nor forget.
Pierre gave no answer, for he neither heard nor saw anything.
The duel between Pierre and Dolokhov was hushed up and, in spite of the Emperor's severity regarding duels at that time, neither the principals nor their seconds suffered for it.
Nor could I, and it cannot be seen if one looks on our life here as the end of everything.
He did not ask about the regiment, nor about the general state of affairs, and when Rostov spoke of these matters did not listen.
Neither gnarled fingers nor old scars nor old doubts and sorrows were any of them in evidence now.
Natasha looked at the fat actress, but neither saw nor heard nor understood anything of what went on before her.
Natasha did not reply, nor did she sob any longer, but she grew cold and had a shivering fit.
He was not at the ice hills, nor at the gypsies', nor at Komoneno's.
Evidently she could speak of Russia's misfortunes with a certain artificiality, but her brother was too near her heart and she neither could nor would speak lightly of him.
But he never thought about her as he had thought of all the young ladies without exception whom he had met in society, nor as he had for a long time, and at one time rapturously, thought about Sonya.
Wherever the ship may go, the rush of water which neither directs nor increases its movement foams ahead of it, and at a distance seems to us not merely to move of itself but to govern the ship's movement also.
Neither Howie nor I really know him.
Neither Martha nor I knew what details Howie knew of the event.

I was awoken by the gunshot and both of us drove the roads around the perimeter of the property but neither heard nor saw his vehicle.
Neither Daniel Brennan nor Merrill Cooms possessed that information.
We discussed neither Julie nor Howie over breakfast but Betsy joined me when I left for our office.
He's with one named Julie but I don't know who she is nor do I know not how long they plan to stay.
No, there was no change in Julie's condition nor was Howie there.
There was neither a message nor, I realized, success with our endeavor.
There was no additional supply nor could we ration it as there was no way to reignite it.
He pulled his phone free, realizing neither Toni nor Darian had checked in for a couple of hours.
He was neither ancient nor ugly, with familiar dark eyes and hair and roughly hewn features.

Rusty hinges were still visible in the wood but no door barred the entrance nor could anything be seen beyond but utter blackness.

Neither the boy nor the girl spoke again for some minutes.
They did not smile nor did they frown, or show either fear or surprise or curiosity or friendliness.

But there were no dealers with voices of ingratiating affability inviting customers to enter; there were no hawkers, nor the usual motley crowd of female purchasers--but only soldiers, in uniforms and overcoats though without muskets, entering the Bazaar empty-handed and silently making their way out through its passages with bundles.
Neither in Moscow nor anywhere in Russia did anything resembling an insurrection ever occur when the enemy entered a town.
To all of them from the marshal to the least soldier, that place was not the Vozdvizhenka, Mokhavaya, or Kutafyev Street, nor the Troitsa Gate (places familiar in Moscow), but a new battlefield which would probably prove sanguinary.
They could not believe it because they alone knew what their life meant to them, and so they neither understood nor believed that it could be taken from them.
Neither in his presence nor out of it did they weep, nor did they ever talk to one another about him.
The battle of Tarutino obviously did not attain the aim Toll had in view--to lead the troops into action in the order prescribed by the dispositions; nor that which Count Orlov-Denisov may have had in view-- to take Murat prisoner; nor the result of immediately destroying the whole corps, which Bennigsen and others may have had in view; nor the aim of the officer who wished to go into action to distinguish himself; nor that of the Cossack who wanted more booty than he got, and so on.
He did not again go to the sick man, nor turn to look at him, but stood frowning by the door of the hut.
From the moment Pierre had recognized the appearance of the mysterious force nothing had seemed to him strange or dreadful: neither the corpse smeared with soot for fun nor these women hurrying away nor the burned ruins of Moscow.
When Denisov had come to Pokrovsk at the beginning of his operations and had as usual summoned the village elder and asked him what he knew about the French, the elder, as though shielding himself, had replied, as all village elders did, that he had neither seen nor heard anything of them.
But after a four days' halt the mob, with no maneuvers or plans, again began running along the beaten track, neither to the right nor to the left but along the old--the worst--road, through Krasnoe and Orsha.
Natasha neither saw nor heard her.
Natasha did not remember how that day passed nor that night, nor the next day and night.

He alone during the whole retreat insisted that battles, which were useless then, should not be fought, and that a new war should not be begun nor the frontiers of Russia crossed.
This red-haired man was neither a sergeant nor a corporal, but being robust he ordered about those weaker than himself.

Princess Mary did not express her opinion of Pierre nor did Natasha speak of him.
The chief thing in his eyes was not the nitrogen in the soil, nor the oxygen in the air, nor manures, nor special plows, but that most important agent by which nitrogen, oxygen, manure, and plow were made effective-- the peasant laborer.
In his place was his father-- Prince Andrew--and his father had neither shape nor form, but he existed, and when little Nicholas perceived him he grew faint with love: he felt himself powerless, limp, and formless.

Neither Betsy nor I liked chain fast food so I looked in the windows of the café we liked.
She could neither control her body's reaction to it nor satiate it.
Nor did his father.
Napoleon, riding to Valuevo on the twenty-fourth, did not see (as the history books say he did) the position of the Russians from Utitsa to Borodino (he could not have seen that position because it did not exist), nor did he see an advanced post of the Russian army, but while pursuing the Russian rearguard he came upon the left flank of the Russian position--at the Shevardino Redoubt--and unexpectedly for the Russians moved his army across the Kolocha.
The birds did not sing, nor did the cows moo; yet there was more than ordinary activity everywhere.
The window was open, assuring her it was neither cold nor raining.
