Famous quotes containing the word reckon:

    I reckon a body that ups and tells the truth when he is in a tight place, is taking considerable many resks; though I ain’t had no experience, and can’t say for certain.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    They reckon ill who leave me out;
    When me they fly, I am the wings;
    I am the doubter and the doubt,
    And I the hymn the Brahmin sings.

    The strong gods pine for my abode,
    And pine in vain the sacred Seven;
    But thou, meek lover of the good!
    Find me, and turn thy back on heaven.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We all ask ourselves the question why is it that some of us are killed while others remain. The only answer is our faith in the wisdom of a supreme being. If he has chosen us to live there must be a reason. I have tried to reckon out why. Perhaps he has saved us because we are needed as witnesses to remind each other, and our folks, and folks everywhere that war is too full of horrors for human beings.
    —Michael Blankfort. Lewis Milestone. Dickerman (Jack Webb)
