Prudence Quotes

"I consider it a mark of great prudence in a man to abstain from threats or any contemptuous expressions, for neither of these weaken the enemy, but threats make him more cautious, and the other excites his hatred, and a desire to revenge himself."
Niccolo Machiavelli

"Affairs are easier of entrance than of exit; and it is but common prudence to see our way out before we venture in."
Aesop

Prudence: A Novel
by David TreuerSearch for David Treuer
$27.95
$13.63 new/used

A haunting and unforgettable novel about love, loss, race, and desire in World War II?era America.
 
On a sweltering day in August 1942, Frankie Washburn returns to his family?s rustic Minnesota resort for one last visit before he joins the war as a bombardier, headed for the darkened skies over Europe. Awaiting him at the Pines are those he?s about to leave behind: his hovering mother; the distant father to whom he?s been a disappointment; the Indian caretaker who?s been more of a father to him than his own; and Billy, the childhood friend who over the years has become something much more intimate. But before the homecoming can be celebrated, the search for a German soldier, escaped from the POW camp across the river, explodes in a shocking act of violence, with consequences that will reverberate years into the future for all of them and that will shape how each of them makes sense of their lives.
 
With Prudence, Treuer delivers his most ambitious and captivating novel yet. Powerful and wholly original, it?s a story of desire and loss and the search for connection in a riven world; of race and class in a supposedly more innocent era. Most profoundly, it?s about the secrets we choose to keep, the ones we can?t help but tell, and who?and how?we?re allowed to love.

Prudence (The Custard Protocol)
by Gail CarrigerSearch for Gail Carriger
$20.00
$8.90 new/used

Introducing the Custard Protocol series, in which Alexia Maccon's daughter Prudence travels to India on behalf of Queen, country...and the perfect pot of tea.


When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama ("Rue" to her friends) is bequeathed an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female under similar circumstances would do -- she christens it the Spotted Custard and floats off to India.

Soon, she stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis (and an embarrassing lack of bloomers), Rue must rely on her good breeding -- and her metanatural abilities -- to get to the bottom of it all...

Mail-Order Brides of the West: Prudence: A Montana Sky Novel (Montana Sky Series)
by Debra HollandSearch for Debra Holland

Shrewish Prudence Crawford is the last woman left at the Mail-Order Brides of the West Agency because she?s rejected every match offered to her as not good enough. One-by-one, she?s watched her fellow brides leave for their new lives and has heard tales of their happiness, and she wants that for herself?but not just any man. She will only take a husband who offers wealth and status.

Michael Morgan struck it rich in mining, or at least richer than anyone else in the tiny town of Morgan?s Crossing, Montana. He?s built himself the nicest house in town, which isn?t saying much when there are only ten homes in the whole place. He?s elected himself mayor of the population of 61 inhabitants and keeps his kingdom under tight control. When he hears stories of the mail-order brides arriving in nearby Sweetwater Springs, he decided to send for a wife, even if he has to exaggerate a mite to attract one.

A wealthy mine owner who?s the mayor of a town named after him and has a mansion sounds perfect to Prudence, even if the place is too close to the other mail-order brides whom she dislikes. But when Michael and his circumstances are not what Prudence dreamed, tempers flare and the fighting begins.

Can Michael tame the shrew, or are they destined to have a miserable marriage?
