    1
    1
  • Hope that you'll start accepting me as your husband - your mate; not just a lover.

    1
    1
  • Let's just leave it at that.

    1
    1
  • It's just a veterinary clinic.

    1
    1
  • I just thought it was because he was so good looking.

    1
    1
  • If this was what defined a vacation away from home, she'd just as soon stay at home.

    1
    1
  • It was all just good clean fun.

    1
    1
  • For a minute there, I was ready to do just that.

    1
    1
  • I'm just a country hick myself.

    1
    1
  • He just turned twenty-one and he thinks he is a man now.

    1
    1
  • Nothing. I was just thinking about technology.

    1
    1
  • You know, I just thought of something.

    1
    1
  • She was just surprised by what was in the envelope.

    1
    1
  • We pop some popcorn and drink some eggnog - just enjoy each other.

    1
    1
  • It's just not my style.

    1
    1
  • He was just showing me a house he said he was giving as a wedding gift.

    1
    1
  • Are you just getting back?

    1
    1
  • "I don't know why you didn't just undress me when you put me in bed," she said.

    1
    1
  • Some people just put more effort into distinguishing right from wrong than others.

    1
    1
  • Of course, he was just a kid.

    1
    1
  • Considering the information Katie had just disclosed, it wasn't surprising that he wanted to be in control - or that he had chosen a wife who asked few questions.

    1
    1
  • I'll just have to take naps while she's asleep.

    1
    1
  • Just keep thinking that... and praying.

    1
    1
  • Yeah, I'm just tired, and my throat is itching this morning.

    1
    1
  • She was right, of course, but having mama stand there watching her suffer was just as upsetting for Destiny.

    1
    1
  • It wasn't just losing a baby.

    1
    1
  • Then he just makes all the important decisions - and you have no input?

    1
    1
  • Just because it upsets me doesn't mean I don't want to know - or that you shouldn't tell me.

    1
    1
  • Just then the buggy tipped slowly over upon its side, the body of the horse tipping also.

    1
    1
  • But they continued to fall, all together, and the boy and girl had no difficulty in remaining upon the seat, just as they were before.

    1
    1
  • But don't let us worry over such things, Zeb; we can't help ourselves just now, you know, and I've always been told it's foolish to borrow trouble.

    1
    1
  • Just then a man came running into the hall and addressed the Prince after making a low bow.

    1
    1
  • Just then the man with the star came and stood before the Wizard.

    1
    1
  • "Nonsense!" said the little man, turning red--although just then a ray of violet sunlight was on his round face.

    1
    1
  • I am delighted to find humbugs inside the earth, just the same as on top of it.

    1
    1
  • But I've just had the bad luck to come out of the sky, skip the solid earth, and land lower down than I intended.

    1
    1
  • There were no stairs in their houses, because they did not need them, but on a level surface they generally walked just as we do.

    1
    1
  • Just then his eye fell upon the lanterns and the can of kerosene oil which Zeb had brought from the car of his balloon, and he got a clever idea from those commonplace things.

    1
    1
  • Please, Mr. Wizard, may I eat just one of the fat little piglets?

    1
    1
  • "And that's just what I shall do if you don't let those little balls of pork alone," said Jim, glaring at the kitten with his round, big eyes.

    1
    1
  • We have time, just now, and I'd rather face the invis'ble bears than those wooden imps.

    1
    1
  • No; she just dug her claws into the wood and climbed down the sides of this house to the ground.

    1
    1
  • Just you light out and make for that rock, Jim; and don't waste any time about it, either.

    1
    1
  • Our friends had a good start and were able to maintain it, for with their eight wings they could go just as fast as could the Gargoyles.

    1
    1
  • The flames leaped up at once and the bonfire began to smoke and roar and crackle just as the great army of wooden Gargoyles arrived.

    1
    1
  • Of course; in just a jiffy.

    1
    1
  • You'll just love the folks in Oz, when you get acquainted.

    1
    1
  • Just then a loud cackling was heard outside; and, when a servant threw open the door with a low bow, a yellow hen strutted in.

    1
    1
  • Ozma sprinkled me with a magic powder, and I just had to live.

    1
    1
  • Just then Dorothy, who had risen early and heard the voices of the animals, ran out to greet her old friends.

    1
    1
  • "What brought you back?" was the next question, and Dorothy's eye rested on an antlered head hanging on the wall just over the fireplace, and caught its lips in the act of moving.

    1
    1
  • Just then the girlish Ruler of Oz opened the door and greeted Dorothy with a good-morning kiss.

    1
    1
  • Just behind the royal standard-bearers came the Princess Ozma in her royal chariot, which was of gold encrusted with emeralds and diamonds set in exquisite designs.

    1
    1
  • "I ought to be a fairy," grumbled Jim, as he slowly drew the buggy home; "for to be just an ordinary horse in a fairy country is to be of no account whatever.

    1
    1
  • When he returned the Princess looked down the narrow neck of the big ornament and discovered her lost piglet, just as Eureka had said she would.

    1
    1
  • Just ahead of them were the gates of Hugson's Ranch, and Uncle Hugson now came out and stood with uplifted arms and wide open mouth, staring in amazement.

    1
    1
  • These children are learning it just as the first people who lived on the earth learned it in the beginning.

    1
    1
  • He could see a green open space just beyond; and then the woods seemed to be thicker and darker.

    1
    1
  • He's just in from the backwoods.

    1
    1
  • 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.

    1
    1
  • Just step inside and make believe that you are Dean Swift.

    1
    1
  • There was something which she wished very much to know before going home, and so, without thinking, she had leaned over and whispered just three little words.

    1
    1
  • The officer began to write, but just as he finished the first word, a bomb came through the roof of the house and struck the floor close by him.

    1
    1
  • There was a ship just ready to sail for Corinth, and the captain agreed to take him as a passenger.

    1
    1
  • He was dressed just as they had seen him when he jumped into the sea.

    1
    1
  • Just as he spoke, the ant lost its footing and fell to the ground.

    1
    1
  • Just then a young man stepped up.

    1
    1
  • But, as I came to your palace this morning, I kept saying to myself, 'When our lord Al Mansour learns just how it was that I borrowed the gold, I have no doubt that in his kindness of heart he will forgive me the debt.'

    1
    1
  • By the midpoint of the twentieth century, America's dreamers were preoccupied with the future—and not just any old future, but the great and glorious future that seemed inevitable.

    1
    1
  • Not just a little better, but gloriously and fantastically better.

    1
    1
  • And not just a path, but a well-lit, eight-lane highway.

    1
    1
  • So isn't it just possible that it could end ignorance, disease, poverty, hunger, and war?

    1
    1
  • We don't need our computers to be infinitely fast, just a whole lot faster than they are today.

    1

  • So these doctors were perhaps just as brilliant as those who have come since.

    1
    1
  • Highly specialized experts are a few keystrokes away and can be hired for just a few minutes or hours at a time.

    1
    1
  • But if each of ten people specialized on just one-tenth of the task, they could together make 48,000, an increase in per-person productivity from one pin a day to 4,800 pins per day.

    1
    1
  • But for now, I want to leave you with a preposterous thought: In the future, a new Mercedes Benz will cost just $50.

    1
    1
  • If you are a farmer and work alone, you can only plant as much land as you can personally plow. You can do just a couple of thousand calories of work a day, consuming only the energy produced by the food you ate.

    1
    1
  • We just don't know how to capture it efficiently.

    1
    1
  • Remember when Janis Joplin sang "Freedom's just another word for 'nothing left to lose'"?

    1
    1

  • Because nanites are so small, they require little in the way of raw materials, just a few molecules here and there.

    1
    1
  • This pan's nanite coating means to clean it, you just wipe it with a nanite rag that doesn't stain.

    1
    1
  • So, let's say on average the pan is worth $2,000 to everyone who uses it—all the way from the people who just think it is "cool" to the people who it saves from food poisoning to the people whose lives and houses it saves.

    1
    1
  • Labor will fall, material costs will fall, materials will be better, stronger, greener, prettier, lighter, more malleable, and just altogether better.

    1
    1
  • We just want it all to work, to do what it is programmed to do.

    1
    1
  • And not just chairs, but bread and muskets and plows.

    1
    1
  • But we take it largely for granted—and I think that is just fine.

    1
    1
  • In a speech to the House of Representatives at this same time, Congressman Davy Crockett told the story of getting chewed out by a constituent for voting for a $20,000 emergency relief bill for the homeless in a city just wiped out by a fire.

    1
    1
  • Just half a century ago, Americans on average spent more than 20 percent of their income on food.

    1
    1
  • To me, this makes the problem of hunger that much sadder in the present—to realize that the planet has enough food, just not enough generosity.

    1
    1
  • Don't limit it just to plants.

    1

    1

    1
  • It was a huge shift in public opinion in which no group benefited financially; if anything, financial interests were aligned against this change, just as with tobacco.

    1
    1
  • He had just entered, wearing an embroidered court uniform, knee breeches, and shoes, and had stars on his breast and a serene expression on his flat face.

    1
    1
  • There an old maidservant was grumbling at a young girl who stood panting, having just run in through the cold from the serfs' quarters.

    1
    1
  • That's just how she started and just how she came up smiling timidly when all this happened before," thought Natasha, "and in just the same way I thought there was something lacking in her."

    1
    1
  • Of course I do, I remember his teeth as if I had just seen them.

    1
    1
  • Just like a boy!

    1
    1

    1
    1
  • Sonya had not seen anything, she was just wanting to blink and to get up when she heard Natasha say, "Of course she will!"

    1

    1
    1
  • "One word, just one, for God's sake!" cried Anatole.

    1
    1
  • "Natalie, just a word, only one!" he kept repeating, evidently not knowing what to say and he repeated it till Helene came up to them.

    1
    1
  • "Good day, your excellency!" he said, again holding out his hand to Anatole who had just come in.

    1
    1
  • Women, women! said Alpatych, puffing and speaking rapidly just as the prince did, and he climbed into the trap.

  • The cook began running hither and thither in the passage like a frightened hen, just as Alpatych entered.

    1
    1
  • Rostov was just mounting to go for a ride round the neighboring villages with Ilyin; he let Lavrushka have another horse and took him along with him.

    1
  • Ermolov, Kaysarov, and Toll, who had just arrived, sat down on this bench.

    1
    1
  • Just then the lady companion who lived with Helene came in to announce that His Highness was in the ballroom and wished to see her.

    1
    1
  • It no longer seemed strange to them but on the contrary it seemed the only thing that could be done, just as a quarter of an hour before it had not seemed strange to anyone that the wounded should be left behind and the goods carted away but that had seemed the only thing to do.

    1
    1
  • From one open shop came the sound of blows and vituperation, and just as the officer came up to it a man in a gray coat with a shaven head was flung out violently.

    1
    1
  • Just you wait a bit!

    1
    1
  • And this thought occurred to him just because he himself desired a victim, something on which to vent his rage.

    1

    1
    1
  • He ran round to the other side of the lodge and was about to dash into that part of it which was still standing, when just above his head he heard several voices shouting and then a cracking sound and the ring of something heavy falling close beside him.

    1
  • Do you know I have only just come back!

    1
    1
  • Some fellows do things just anyhow, without preparation, and then they're sorry for it afterwards.

    1
    1

    2
  • Dorothy thought he just wiggled one of his drooping ears, but that was all.

    1
    2
  • Many of them were punished, some sent to Siberia, many died of cold and hunger on the road, many returned of their own accord, and the movement died down of itself just as it had sprung up, without apparent reason.

    1
    2
  • Just once, looking into those eyes to say...

    1
    2
  • With a rapid but careful movement Natasha drew nearer to him on her knees and, taking his hand carefully, bent her face over it and began kissing it, just touching it lightly with her lips.

    1

    1
    2
  • The countess had long wished for such a box, but as she did not want to cry just then she glanced indifferently at the portrait and gave her attention chiefly to the box for cards.

    1
    2
  • And she spread out her arms to show her short-waisted, lace-trimmed, dainty gray dress, girdled with a broad ribbon just below the breast.
