They sat silently thinking for a time.
Nothing. I was just thinking about technology.
"I wasn't thinking," she said.
But you're not thinking right.
Later that night she woke and lay awake thinking about the way he had responded.
I've been thinking about rigging up something on the front to catch the webs.
I can't imagine what he was thinking to hide a thing like that from you.
Until now she had been thinking of no one but herself.
I love thinking about the future.
One day he was lying under a tree, thinking of his misfortunes.
Thinking that turn and turn about is fair play, she seized the scissors and cut off one of my curls, and would have cut them all off but for my mother's timely interference.
He was thinking about it now.
Thinking back, her parents had done both in front of her.
You are probably thinking, How can we ever know that?
Maybe he felt more comfortable thinking of it that way.
He spoke so clearly and with such conviction that Carmen wondered if he was thinking about Alex.
She plodded on, willing herself to take each step, not thinking of the miles to go, but merely getting through one more painful step.
Good. It's about time you started thinking defensively.
No. I was thinking about driving up to my parents place today.
"I was thinking about my car today," she said.
Was it wishful thinking, or did she see the same love in his eyes?
After that I spent many happy hours in my tree of paradise, thinking fair thoughts and dreaming bright dreams.
Maybe he was thinking about Alexia, but that was still on their land, in the old house before it was renovated.
Just keep thinking that... and praying.
She had to stop thinking about the past that way.
What were you thinking?
What was he thinking of?
Why couldn't she stop thinking of him that way?
I am glad also to know, from the questions which you ask me, what you are thinking about.
I have been thinking about you.
Or maybe he was thinking about their conversation last night.
All this cloak and dagger thinking wasn't accomplishing anything.
I was thinking about buying a new vehicle and wondered if we had the money, so I looked at his financial information on the computer.
What was she thinking of?
I was just thinking – remembering.
That sounds like your kind of logic - always thinking of the other person first.
Online, people are constantly thinking up new ways to share with others.
Makes me hungry just thinking about it.)
I imitated this action, even wearing his spectacles, thinking they might help solve the mystery.
Now then, what are you thinking of? she went on, turning to Prince Hippolyte.
A footman, thinking no one saw him, was drinking on the sly what was left in the glasses.
Was the man capable of thinking of someone other than himself?
He stopped thinking about the past and his gaze seemed to come to the present.
Instinct deemed it honor, but was that only wishful thinking?
I was just thinking I might have betrayed yours.
She hesitated a moment, wanting to tell him, but thinking she would be betraying Yancey if she did so.
Just thinking about something silly.
He never looked directly at her, but the way he held back branches was indication enough that he knew she was there and was thinking of her.
What were you thinking about that made you cry – last night?
But then, I got to thinking how nice it would be if you went along.
What was he thinking, dragging her into this?
What had she been thinking of all this time?
Obviously, she hadn't been doing much thinking at all.
I guess I wasn't thinking about...
Talking with Fritz was better than nothing, but this young man had an unusual way of thinking.
She sat up straight, thinking that position would be uncomfortable enough to keep her awake.
Carmen tried to shut them out by thinking about something else, but her mind kept going back to the same thing.
Cade was her boss, and thinking such things was not only disrespectful of him, but job threatening as well - especially if he suspected the existence of such thoughts.
Thinking about Cade in that way could lead to no good.
What was he thinking when he did that?
What must he be thinking to hold on to her like that?
Stop thinking about him.
Was it wishful thinking that made her so certain that he wasn't?
I was just thinking.
She stretched and tried to relax, but her mind kept returning to Cade - thinking of his warm touch on the palm of her hand.
It was all wishful thinking.
Stop thinking about it.
She was thinking as if she alone were responsible.
So I got to thinking about adoption.
When you offered me a job, were you thinking of me in any way other than a housekeeper?
I know; I'm not jelouss, but you and Martha have this thing between you that goes so far back I get dizzy thinking about it.
I had trouble sleeping on the sofa because I kept thinking about my vision from earlier.
Thinking back, it was the pivotal point of all that followed.
Just thinking about her brings back the urge.
I was sowing wild oats at that age and not thinking clearly.
I can't sleep thinking how we're wasting this incredible gift Howie has.
Here we were, caught up in the euphoria of our accomplishments, like a group of dissimilar workers sharing a winning power ball ticket, and thinking that success made us friends for ever.
We almost passed up the case, thinking it was yet another teenager leaving home on her own.
I've been thinking on the way out here.
I crawled to my knees and vomited, and thinking I'd die my throat hurt so badly to do so.
I recall thinking ludicrously that I was staining Howie's beloved hardwood floors with my blood and puke.
I'm a wreck just thinking about it.
"I'll give you permission," I said without thinking.
The words were out of my mouth without thinking.
"Right now, I'm thinking of gagging you," he snapped.
He hadn't paid much attention to any woman in many, many years, but couldn't help thinking her one of the most attractive he'd ever met.
I keep thinking, if I'd been in Miami instead of California, he wouldn't have, Bianca said, looking down.
I was thinking more along the lines of you going in there and claiming her.
Wanna tell me what you're thinking, boss?
"I'm thinking Talon wants him real bad and will have to take me out to get to him," Dusty replied.
Shivering, she couldn't help thinking something was very wrong.
She couldn't stop thinking about him.
He kicked himself mentally for not thinking before he made any sort of pact with the Watcher, even one that seemed so straightforward, until he met his target and realized she was an innocent caught in the crossfire.
She chewed on her lip, thinking hard.
Which is probably what your vamp in there is thinking.
"What're you thinking?" she asked.
"I'm thinking there are worse things than death," he replied.
I was thinking even someone who doesn't fear death, fears something else.
But it didn't, did it, he said slowly, thinking hard.
Jule couldn't shake his amazement that there was a vamp capable of thinking.
She couldn't help thinking her life had been wasted and hoped she still had a chance to make it up to the one person who mattered.
"What're you thinking about?" he asked.
"Sorry. I was thinking … it's stupid," she said.
Thousands of years hadn't given him much insight into a woman's way of thinking, but this he knew without a doubt.
Sofia, stop thinking and sit down.
What are you thinking?
Just thinking of him made her body heat and her heart flip.
In your home videos, you're always thinking about the symbol.
She couldn't help thinking the creature whose job it was to trick people into Hell wasn't above lying to the human mate he took.
I made her a deal that expires in four days, thinking I could reverse the bond.
He was thinking hard about it.
But thinking it was disturbing.
She nibbled on her lower lip, thinking furiously.
She couldn't help thinking it was the first truly honest exchange they'd ever had – and the timing was the worst it could possibly be.
Deidre said without thinking.
You remember what you were thinking when you turned down my offer the first time?
What kind of backward thinking is that?
Then, thinking better of her quick response, she began to pick at her fingernails.
A cold shiver went down his spine just thinking about it; a primal fear of dark and dank places.
I got thinking if his head was busted, then maybe somebody busted it for him and got away with it.
All this business with her got me thinking about them years— courts and jail and stuff like that.
The phone rang, causing all three to jump, thinking it might be Martha.
It got me thinking about spreading around the little bit you've got.
Silly David Dean for thinking more time might be needed to put all these pesky details to rest.
It got me thinking that if someone wanted the place, there must be a reason.
I wonder if Ginger is thinking about dumping Joseph?
To Dean's way of thinking, it spoke of fear—as well as guilt.
I thought I might camp there—spend a couple of days just thinking and dreaming.
I know what you're thinking, but hear me out.
Melissa's thinking about maybe suing him.
She spent a minute thinking over how she'd seen human-Deidre buy things.
How did she win him, if she had to guess what he was thinking?
She seemed to be thinking of how to respond.
"I made a human into a deity's mate," she paused, thinking hard.
I can't help thinking I hope he doesn't hurt her.
You're not thinking of a deal with Darkyn.
"What are you thinking about?" he asked.
"I'm thinking …I waited my whole life for this moment," she replied.
Though terrible news, Gabriel couldn't help thinking it was the best thing he'd heard all week.
There were moments when he didn't know what the human side of her was thinking.
It was far more important than the bet with the human, but Deidre couldn't help thinking about her deal and Darkyn's threat to reveal everything to Gabriel.
"Yeah, they seem to," Gabriel agreed, unwilling to let the Dark One see he was thinking the same thing.
Darkyn would never let him through Hell, but Deidre … He felt like shit just thinking about it yet recognized the danger he was in.
Thinking of taking a dive in the lake and not surfacing again, except that it meant she'd lose her soul.
I don't see Deidre, Wynn said, thinking fast.
There was no point ruining her brunch thinking about that situation.
He was human, and there had been times that he had slipped, but it wasn't because he was thinking only of himself.
I keep thinking I'll get it done some weekend, but I always seem to be busy with something else.
Obviously he had been listening and thinking about what she said.
I was thinking about you then, not Alex or Destiny.
For a moment she was silent, thinking about Alexia.
There she was, thinking only about herself again.
He was probably thinking years ahead and wanted Carmen to handle it in event of his death.
She smiled, thinking how nice it was to have a family.
What was she thinking?
She had to keep thinking positively.
Long after she crawled into bed, she lay awake, thinking about Alex.
I wasn't even thinking about the children.
I've been thinking about that.
Maybe she should be ashamed for thinking such a thing.
She sat there for a long time, leaning against the porch post and thinking about the first time they had met.
I was thinking about that the other day.
I was thinking about the way you rode up and saved me from those dogs.
She probably wasn't thinking clearly enough to realize how badly it would have hurt Alex to think his wife was cheating.
And he was listening - thinking.
And yet, how could she blame him for thinking that this was all she wanted?
Then again, if the room were clearly lit, she still wouldn't know what he was thinking.
Obviously she had no idea what he was thinking when it came to that type of thing.
Issues such as this were not resolved, but at least they were in the open instead of stewing about them and guessing what each other was thinking.
At least her answer wasn't no, and she had been thinking about it – researching.
Maybe things would have been different... but there was no point thinking about that.
I was thinking more along the lines that he can have no objection when I ask you to dinner, if he's out of the picture.
He followed all the rules in the Code, but he couldn't help thinking he was doing something …wrong.
"What're you thinking about?" she asked.
What're you thinking about?
Death. I'm thinking about death.
I was thinking about working a couple of them in this week.
She was quiet for a moment, thinking.
"Well, what're we waiting for?" she replied without thinking.
His response made her think she wasn't far off in thinking he'd at least read her mind.
She felt horrible thinking it, but she was utterly relieved whoever it was on the beach, it wasn't Logan.
"If you didn't bring them here either half-eaten by demons or thinking they're dead, they wouldn't need alcohol," Daniela snapped.
Being alone meant she started thinking again, something she didn't want to do.
Gazing at the muscular man who freely admitted to killing for a living, Deidre couldn't help thinking she never wanted to see something he couldn't handle.
"What are you thinking?" he asked.
"I'm thinking I would've agreed three years ago," she replied.
She was thinking, which was good.
How did you trick my sister Hannah into thinking I had a kid, when you and I know I don't?
I'm thinking death might be a bit more to my liking.
He'd forgotten what color real fire was, but he found himself thinking it was orange, like the fruit in the basket on Sasha's desk.
She'd like to think she was saving poor souls every day she spent with him donating her blood, but she couldn't help thinking she really wouldn't care what he did to get blood if she was gone.
Yet he'd done what Andre always warned him about: he'd acted without thinking and affected someone he hadn't intended to.
She sensed he was reading her thoughts, and she wondered what he was thinking.
Katie was thinking of how much whiskey it'd take to dull the edge of her headache when the phone rang.
As she fell asleep, she couldn.t help thinking Rhyn was the only Immortal on the Council she.d trust to keep humans safe.
Recently, he.d begun thinking he.d need more if he were taking on demons, Immortals, and anything else the Dark One would throw at him.
Speechless, Katie couldn.t help thinking Gio was as shallow as her sister.
What was I thinking … it never would.ve worked anyway! she snapped.
Gazing at his dismembered mother, he couldn.t help thinking they were right.
"I.m thinking," he growled.
Emerald was the color of Kris thinking, and Jade.s favorite hue.
The Council is working together for once, and Sasha tricked us into thinking he was returning to the Council, disappeared and washed up at the Caribbean Sanctuary.
Once more, he caught himself thinking of Andre and missing his brother.s—and best friend.s—guidance.
"Believe it or not, I was thinking of killing someone else," Kris replied, rising.
Even thinking of her made him feel as though his insides were burning and dying.
"Oh, damn you," she muttered, irritated her first sale was a pity sale and yet thinking even better of Romas for supporting his fiancée's hopeless friend.
We're thinking about returning to his place to live.
Kiera asked, thinking hard.
Don't give this blonde the credit for thinking too deeply.
She felt more guilty about thinking badly about Evelyn.
"Evelyn, I was thinking about the prisoner," Kiera started, debating how to get the information she wanted without alarming Evelyn.
Someone else would have to do the thinking for him if he were to execute any kind of betrayal.
Kiera hefted it and relaxed, cheered to be doing something other than thinking or pacing.
Even after a month she couldn't go a night without thinking of her friend.
Of all the things she could be thinking about, she thought only of A'Ran.
She could almost see him thinking.
What have you been thinking about?
Wishful thinking, I guess.
I started thinking maybe I wasn't so dumb after all.
Then, as if thinking about it added, But I'll donate these things.
I gaze from my window to the hill as I watch the warm glow from his home and pray he perhaps is thinking of me as I am thinking of him.
I kept thinking I could hear an alarm clock.
Whoever you are, if you're thinking of selling this 'magazine bit' to all of Jerry's friends, you'll starve to death!
But I wonder what he's thinking.
I wasn't thinking at my highest level of logic.
You're not thinking of going up to Indiana are you?
Just thinking a guy's a jerk doesn't usually result in your killing him.
My guess is someone did a bit of planning for Jerome Shipton's big fall, and Edith hasn't demonstrated any real talent for long-range thinking.
He answered by instinct, yet, in spite of not thinking of his answer, had he been given more time to consider, it would have remained the same.
Dean wasn't thinking at near his usual high level.
He always tried to govern his thinking by logic.
I guess in a way I bonded with Donnie, thinking he did what I wanted to do.
I've got too much going for me right now to be thinking about those jerks.
I spent two weeks of hell thinking I was a big part of why Edith died!
Later, as they descended the stairs to the hall, Dean commented, "It's nice to think Annie and her friends are up there in heaven smiling down on us, probably thinking that we're nuts for always taking on everyone's problems."
I need to know what he's thinking.
Claudia put on a pout, thinking she had misread Jackson's intentions for her.
He heard her sharp intake of breath and crooned, "I'm thinking we might have a different kind of fun together."
He obviously wasn't thinking rationally.
He still felt guilt-ridden over the redhead, but comforted himself by picturing her counting the money, thinking fondly of the great night at the casino with that sexy guy whose name she couldn't remember.
I'm not thinking roses, too ordinary for this woman.
He could tell she was thinking, too soon to meet the family.
Normally he wouldn't go more than a few hours without thinking about his next meal, but Elisabeth filled his thoughts so completely, there was no room for anything else.
She smiled, thinking of the many times they played "Wingman" for each other and all the times he had nursed her through heartache.
While Jackson made drinks, Sarah introduced Connor who was thinking, cripes another one.
I've been thinking about that the last few days.
Once the shock wore off, rational thinking set in and he calmed down, feeling this might be an advantage.
I'm tired of thinking about it.
I wasn't sure, thought it might be wishful thinking on my part.
No, I am thinking tomorrow.
She won't be thinking rationally at all.
Thinking about all the times he nursed her through heartache, she now realized how difficult it must have been for him to witness her pain.
I wasn't thinking very clearly.
I need you to explain what you were thinking while I fell in love with you.
Thinking about enjoying winter outdoors with her and not having to worry about her freezing cheered him.
He grinned thinking how she would react to his true age.
I'm thinking something red.
I'm thinking of coming to see you.
She giggled, thinking him a nervous flier.
Since he still wasn't thinking clearly, Jackson let Elisabeth field this one.
He sat, petting her, thinking how unreal this all seemed, but at the same time celebrated that they had overcome their most daunting hardship.
You know, I can't help thinking, if you were human, I would be going through the very hell Sarah is experiencing right now.
I just woke up and wasn't thinking clearly.
He grinned innocently thinking, Things are going to get back to normal here pretty quickly.
Jackson chuckled, thinking he should have put Sarah on this from the start.
I was thinking we could go out for a drink this afternoon.
He smiled, thinking what a wonderful mother Elisabeth would be, yet he could never give that to her.
I'm thinking Daisy Duke outfit, and that song for my Christmas lap dance.
I remember thinking over and over that I couldn't allow him to kill someone I love again, and when Connor removed the IV, I went insane with rage.
He did some of his best thinking in the saddle.
All the same, you'd better take a good, long look at what you're thinking about giving up.
I wasn't thinking right.
Kind of silly, when you get to thinking about it, I guess.
You were thinking of her.
No doubt he was thinking about Lori.
What was she thinking of – arousing him that way?
After all, shouldn't she be doing some thinking as well?
To be honest, thinking about the responsibility of making those decisions was overwhelming at times.
I was thinking today that I wish my dog was with me, so I don't die alone.
She suddenly felt foolish thinking that Guardian, a man trained to kill, wouldn't kill in cold blood or wouldn't succumb to any other vices.
Lana couldn't help thinking they were far too different.
"I was thinking about how you kissed me," she said.
All your fancy training won't … Lana half-listened to Elise's lecture, thinking about how she could hack into her micro with Elise's.
You thinking what I'm thinking?
I'm thinking someone is destroying the fed buildings in case a certain fed is hiding there.
She couldn't stop thinking of Brady.
Brady sat in silence for a long moment, thinking hard.
The token seemed too small to make up for not thinking of it sooner.
Only now, he couldn't help thinking she was the only woman he'd ever met he would even consider taking such an oath to.
Restless, she returned to her room in the warehouse and lay on the bed, thinking hard.
Even hearing his voice, she couldn't help thinking she'd heard him because she wanted to hear his voice again, not because she actually had.
Gabriel gazed out the window of the small room, thinking.
You surprise me, Rhyn. When did you start thinking for – did you say Darkyn?
He couldn't help thinking his mama had been a little tougher when she found out about the Immortals.
Kris sat beside her. Hannah's skin had gone from pale to gray, and her features looked gaunt. He couldn't help thinking Katie wouldn't survive a week down here if Hannah was suffering so badly after a day. He touched Hannah's hair, revolted when a handful came off in his hand.
Kris said nothing. Rhyn's assurances that Hannah was safe in Hell didn't sit well with him. Kris followed the half-demon without knowing where they might be headed, instead thinking of just how bad of a situation he'd left Kiki in.
Rhyn could almost see him thinking. In the end, Kris said nothing else, and Rhyn shook his head. For the first time, he'd tried to reason with Kris. He'd never do it again.
"Demons aren't known for thinking," Gabe said.
The man stopped, thinking he'd heard some movement behind him, but after listening a few minutes could discern no human sound and was satisfied he was alone.
He said he had been thinking of asking me for weeks.
Just thinking about it gets me all hot and tingly, she said, snuggling closer.
He responded, with just a hint of reluctance, thinking of the 5:00 alarm call, very few hours away.
Good thinking and good luck with the scholarship.
"I've been thinking," he began.
I got thinking about it and figured maybe you ought to know.
You ain't thinking of giving up so soon, are you?
Why can't two people talk to each other without the rest of the world thinking they're screwing their brains out?
He still hoped she would awake in the morning thinking she had undressed herself and save them both the embarrassment that would otherwise follow.
Then, thinking his statement presumptive added, "When things settle down."
Fred was quiet for a moment, thinking.
Biking was usually Dean's thinking time, but his brain felt overused lately and had opted for a day off, restricting his thoughts to nothing more pressing than the next hill.
Just thinking of Billie gives me the willies.
I didn't have any luck with any of the dealers and then I got to thinking.
But Dean knew reality seldom replaces the passion of panic thinking.
I guess he was thinking about biking again, Randy commented.
We're not thinking clearly and there are too damn many unanswered questions.
There was no reason for her to be in Colorado except thinking her hubby was still alive and here.
I guess he started thinking he might still be connected and got scared.
He might start thinking if Cynthia Byrne's and David Dean's bodies show up.
What are you thinking about – second thoughts?
No, I was just thinking about how all this came to be.
It was strange how a person got to thinking that way after they learned to love someone.
"I guess I should have asked whether you meant a physical feature or personality," Carmen clarified and then paused, thinking.
No, I was just thinking.
Why was she thinking about this now?
Thinking about it and acting on it were two different things... weren't they?
Here she was, thinking improper thoughts again.
She had to start thinking like a woman.
Maybe this was what they needed to do instead of thinking torrid thoughts about each other.
Thinking about approaching the conversation and actually starting the conversation were two entirely different things.
I was just thinking that you've had a decidedly positive influence on me.
No. I was just thinking.
She turned and reached for her purse, only then thinking of the fact that she had no money.
Thinking back, it seemed her mother always had a cup of coffee close by.
She smiled wistfully, thinking of their time together on the mountain.
To her way of thinking, it exposed too much breast, but no one was there to see it.
She was thinking about her desire to be with children – instead of how that would make him feel.
I was thinking about him all the time – until the twins came along.
He knew what she was thinking about? knew and enjoyed the attention.
I wasn't thinking of that at all.
I was thinking that we should share all this — not hog it all to ourselves.
Thinking a ride might put her in a better mood, she saddled Ed and released Princess and her daughters in the pasture.
She had to stop thinking of it that way.
Here she was, thinking of Alex again.
Actually, I've been thinking of restoring it — and your old truck.
I wasn't thinking of selling it.
I was kind of thinking ... figuring some things ... about the ... ranch.
Interesting. You must have been thinking about this for a long time.
Alex was unusually quiet through breakfast and she assumed he was thinking about that darkness thing.
What were you thinking of?
I was thinking about a friend who was depressed and ready to give her baby to anyone.
I was thinking that when she got better, she wouldn't be able to get it back unless I had it.
That night she did a lot of thinking about the baby, Lori and Alex.
She'd learned to stop thinking when in the ring with him and listen to her senses, to include the mind control talent.
Standing in the desert sun, he couldn't help thinking she wasn't beyond his reach anymore.
For once, he didn't know what Damian might be thinking.
You're not thinking of trying to change your brother back.
"I can," Darian said, thinking of the Black God and the Others.
Sofi, you aren't thinking of going to the immortal world, are you?
The silence grew awkward, and she found herself thinking of the last time they were together.
Jenn wiped her mind clean, instead thinking of Bianca, Jonny's sister.
So I was right in thinking it's better they—or Jonny—kills me, before you destroy our world to get to them.
Sirian's coldness had never struck her as anything but rigid discipline and cool thinking.
She was quiet, thinking quickly.
Lately, he'd been thinking of nothing but Rissa.
To his way of thinking, Carmen drifted his way most of the time because she either agreed or it didn't matter.
He'd probably been thinking about it all week.
Thinking he needed to say goodbye to an old friend, she agreed.
Are you thinking about running from the bison, Gerald?
I was only thinking about myself.
I meant thinking only about yourself didn't sound like you.
I've been thinking about making more trails – maybe putting some markers up so people can ride on their own.
About time she was thinking Sam might be the one she wanted to hire, Sam threw a kink into the process.
Carmen nodded, thinking Sam was going to comment on his past.
I'm thinking about starting some trails on the south side.
I wasn't thinking about protection.
I don't know what I was thinking about.
I was thinking about going out there and getting someone to carry it to the barn.
In the end she let Felipa leave thinking all was well.
He was probably thinking of Ed and how she had disobeyed him.
I'd love to have this puppy, and thank you for thinking about us.
The old Carmen was back – thinking one jump ahead of him.
Thinking about what he did to Carmen brought his mind to a boil.
What was he thinking?
It's just that... maybe it was wishful thinking, but I thought you two were getting along.
Here she was, thinking about a complete stranger as a companion.
Only the tiniest shred of doubt remained in her mind, and that was probably born of wishful thinking, not logic.
Thinking of Denton made it much less attractive.
She started cleaning the dishes, thinking all the while that he was too much like her father.
Was it wishful thinking, or was there a mutual attraction between them?
It was probably wishful thinking - nothing more.
She showered and dressed, thinking about his offhanded way of handing out compliments.
It's probably silly, but I was thinking that this land would be a good investment for a resort retreat.
I'm thinking about buying a house in the mountains.
His cat nuzzled one leg as he stood, thinking hard, in the middle of his bright condo.
I was thinking of getting here at seven fifty seven.
You thinking you're gonna win this game.
His gaze darkened, and Xander knew his long-time ally was thinking of their shared history from the time before the Schism that split the mortal and immortal worlds apart.
She was a fool, too, for thinking she could handle the situation on her own.
Her body caught on fire just thinking about it.
If I'm the first person whose mind you can't read, doesn't it scare you that you can't tell what I'm thinking?
He gave no sign of what he might be thinking.
Xander wasn't certain what Jessi might be thinking.
She definitely seemed to be thinking twice about sleeping with him.
Her eyes slid from Damian to him, and he gazed back, unable to read what she was thinking.
He couldn't help thinking she looked like some beautiful, otherworldly creature with her full lips, haunted eyes and curls that appeared silver in the moonlight.
If you don't start thinking like a God and stop thinking like a hormonal teen, I'll replace you, Xander warned in a low growl.
I am thinking like a God.
Thinking of what happened tomorrow did her no good, when she wasn't certain she'd live through the night.
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.
I turned round, thinking that it was one of the sisters talking to me - I was alone.
But when we have done our worst in unsettling them, we come to an ultimate point in the fact that it is we who are doubting, we who are thinking.
We are certain that we are thinking, and in so far as we are thinking we are.
Amongst the elements of our thought there are some which we can make and unmake at our pleasure; there are others which come and go without our wish; there is also a third class which is of the very essence of our thinking, and which dominates our conceptions.
Descartes began with the certainty that we are thinking beings; that region remains untouched; but up to its very borders the mechanical explanation of nature reigns unchecked.
But whilst all the organic processes in man go on mechanically, and though by reflex action he may repel attack unconsciously, still the first affirmation of the system was that man was essentially a thinking being; and, while we retain this original dictum, it must not be supposed that the mind is a mere spectator, or like the boatman in the boat.
This last version would not be surprising if we relied upon the following portrait, sketched by a person who knew him intimately: - "Simple in his tastes, never thinking of himself, constantly preoccupied about others, supremely kind, he did not and would not recognize such a thing as evil.
It is not difficult to discern the influence of naïve materialism in contemporary thinking.
