Marriage is one long conversation, chequered by disputes.
My career is chequered. Then I think I got pigeon-holed in humour; Shakespeare is not my thing.
To the press alone, chequered as it is with abuses, the world is indebted for all the triumphs which have been gained by reason and humanity over error and oppression.
For me this world was neither so high nor so low as the Church would have it; chequered over with its wild light shadows, I could love it and all the children of it, more dearly, perhaps, because it was not all light.
