Where our river breaks its brink,
And a rest is over all.

O do not think that God can leave
Forget, forsake, refuse to hear!

You think that from my coldness your love has flown away:
But mine are the hands you shall dream that your own are holding,
And mine is the face you shall look for when you are dying.

You know how sometimes you get into a high-stakes conversation and you think of the perfect things to say after it's over.
She was just a passenger in the vehicle the officer had pulled over one evening in late February and probably did not think she was doing anything illegal.
Crazy as it is, the movie is one of my all time favorites-just think about it-reliving one day over and over again.
Both Democratic and Republican conventions are over, it is time to serious start thinking about who will become the next President of the United States of America.
"I don't think you have to deal at all with the politics of it," Steven Bochco told Reuters about Over There, the first drama series to take on the Iraq war.
0 D uring Hurricane Katrina, I often found myself thinking that at least after an earthquake's over, you're dry.
If the Brooklyn Bridge seemed unusually wobbly as you drove over it July 20, especially at one end, I think I can explain.
In a less than scientific survey with a few young and enthusiastic Obama supporters, I think I understood one key to his appeal to younger voters (those under the age of 40), who chose Obama over Clinton in New Jersey.
It was the victory of the future over the past, of political reality over magical thinking.
Do you think part of the problem with our draft strategy over the last 5+ years is this idea of getting 'playmakers'.
Which Obama "crony capitalist" were you thinking of while you were doubled over with laughter after reading that.
A comment on an earlier post made me think about the ways in which the meaning of the term " socialized medicine" has changed over the years.
Jean Miller sent this over and I think it reflects a really nice perspective from a DSP's family.
When northern Michigan deer hunters choose a football game over hunting, you might think football has found religion.
If Prince Harry thinks the worst of his Las Vegas drama is over, he's got another think coming, a new report claims.

In science:

So far we are only thinking of Gq /P as a non-commutative complex pro jective variety, Pro jnc(S [Gq /P ]) where S [Gq /P ] is thought of as holomorphic polynomial functions on the “punctured cone” over Gq /P, i.e., the non-commutative space X − {0} in §7.1.
Noncommutative complex differential geometry
Let DNFn,s denote the class of all s-term DNF formulas over n Boolean variables (which for convenience we think of as 0/1 variables).
Inverse problems in approximate uniform generation
Let P (Φm ) be the (m − 1)-dimensional projective space over Φ, where we think of P (Φm ) as the set of all one-dimensional subspaces of Φm .
Galois theory on the line in nonzero characteristic
One might think that the situation considered in this example is too simple to test the validity of the modification of SC, since we have only one surface in the sum over lattice surfaces here.
A String Project in Multicolour QCD
We can think of the Lascar strong type over A as simply the specification of an orbit under AutfA (C ).
A note on Lascar strong types in simple theories
V -bundles and Seifert fibrations In this paper, as in [FS] or [MOY], we will think of Seifert manifolds as sphere bundles determined by complex line V -bundles over Riemann V -surfaces.
Finite energy Seiberg-Witten moduli spaces on 4-manifolds bounding Seifert fibrations
We may think of it as the Ω which already exists for each short type IIB string (i.e., it acts on one eigenvalue) combined with a permutation of n eigenvalues Sn in such a way as to define Ωn, the exchange of left and right–moving parts of the length n string which is periodic over 0 < σ ≤ 2nπ .
On Second-Quantized Open Superstring Theory
Roughly speaking, one may think of this as the square of the amplitude in eq.(6), but instead of an explicit vector meson wavefunction appearing completeness in the sum over all possible produced states is used.
The dipole picture of small x physics (a summary of the Amirim meeting)
Here troubles come because a realistic model requires so many improvements over the minimal versions that one could think that the beautiful idea of Grand Unification is actually not realizable.
The problem of neutrino masses in extensions of the Standard Model
What is the significance of the ‘naive’ geometry (like (1.1)) that we can write down as a solution of the classical field equations? It is tempting to think that this could be some kind of an ‘average’ over the microstate geometries.
The quantum structure of black holes
There has been quite an evolution in our thinking about these sources over the past decade.
(Sort of) Testing relativity with extreme mass ratio inspirals
JR] I just wanted to second that. I think that at the moment, suggesting exciting analyses might actually still have an influence, for the very reason that many people who have worked very hard on building the detector are moving into physics at this moment, and we can have influence over [the choices that they make].
The future of charm physics: a discussion
If we think of ‘the number of connected components’ as a measure, then (∗) is a repeated integral taken over certain fibres, and it is exactly the variation of the fibres which contributes to the interesting structure of the Hasse-Herbrand function.
Fubini's theorem and non-linear change of variables over a two-dimensional local field
The main idea in our algorithm is to think of the noncommuting monomials over the xi as words and to design finite automata that allow us to disting uish between different words.
New results on Noncommutative and Commutative Polynomial Identity Testing
Thinking along the lines of the discussion above of species 25, one could consider the distribution over the plane of one half of the subtype-26e lattice unit, the half with the even b dimension divided.
