You're not serious, Ruth?... Such things aren't." "I I'd do THAT again," she said. "It was right to do that for the good of all those men.... It's not that but the rest not keeping to my bargain and Dulac. I would have gone with him." Hilda shook her head. "Not farther than the door," she said. "You couldn't not after Bonbright has been such such an idiotic angel about you." "I would have THEN."
He found Lettice sitting on the edge of the porch, and, panting vigorously, the dog extended before her, an expression of idiotic satisfaction on his shaggy face. They were, together, an epitome of extreme youth; and Gordon's discontent, revived from the night before, overflowed in facile displeasure.
Unable as I was to turn out a good acting play of my own, I was, nevertheless, sufficiently gifted with an appreciation of the dramatic to be able to recognise such a play when I saw it. There were situations in Margaret's comedy which would grip a London audience, and force laughter and tears from it.... Well, the public side of that idiotic play is history.
From eye-glass to trouser-hem the illusion was perfect, but he wore with evening-dress buttoned boots with brown cloth tops!

At the opening of the French attack, a German officer rushed to the hospital, which was full of wounded, in search of francs-tireurs. Arrived there, he saw an old man, a chronic patient of the hospital and half idiotic, standing on the steps of the building. He blew the old man's brains out.

"I DID come here to try out some stuff to change the colour of negro skins. That's all. And I find your idiotic followers are all stirred up and waiting for some kind of a miracle monger. What you have been preaching to them, you know best. Is that all you want to know?" The bishop hems and haws and fiddles with his stick, and then he says: "Suh, will dish yeah prepa'shun SHO'LY do de wohk?"
I think I puzzled her; I certainly did not understand myself any better than did poor Adah, whose mind appeared to be in solution from the effects of the lightning, and I felt that I must be appearing worse than idiotic.
