Beowulf

... way we speak today, thus making it easily interpreted. A random sentence to verify this is the statement beginning on line 53 of the story.

Catcher In The Rye

... Holden interrogates two taxi cab drivers about the location of the ducks during winter in Central Park. As Holden questions the second driver, Horwitz, the taxi cab driver responds by relating the ducks to the fish in the lake. The taxi cab driver irritably responds to Holden's barrage of questions by replying, "If you was a fish, Mother Nature'd take care of you, wouldn't she?"

Inherit The Wind

... weight as the other. Thus, we simply cannot refuse to make a judgment before looking critically into the logistics surrounding the propaganda of each theory. God’s diplomats, the Bible-thumping, prophesizing blow-hards much like Brady in Inherit the Wind, are as much the bigoted and biased, sacrilegious and amoral attention-seekers as they proclaim the evolutionists to be. However, their chosen doctrine cannot be overlooked, as I myself am deeply devoted to it’s teachings. Brady and others like him fight from the backbone of Fai ...
