Famous quotes containing the words list of, adam and/or list:

    Modern tourist guides have helped raised tourist expectations. And they have provided the natives—from Kaiser Wilhelm down to the villagers of Chichacestenango—with a detailed and itemized list of what is expected of them and when. These are the up-to- date scripts for actors on the tourists’ stage.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    I wish you would not let him plunge into a ôvortex of
    Dissipation.ö I do not object to the Thing, but I cannot bear the
    expression; it is such thorough novel slang—and so old, that I
    dare say Adam met with it in the first novel he opened.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)
