to make reference to something- in passing, or for a definite purpose. An absolute reference, so much more potent then a breezy mention. A proper reference is something i will never understand- hence my being a soon-to-be college drop out.

References are crucial when it comes to just about anything. Without a solid reference, a site, or informational text can easily be proven as faulty and inaccurate. A good, credible source can make or break a paper, research project, or presentation.

Everything that happens to you can be archived.
Your mind is an automatic library,
Processing each experience,
Saving it for future reference.
People may leave, things may break,
But your memories will always be there for you.

I don’t like this word. Makes me think of school.

“This is the reference section like you asked, ma’am.”
I nodded to the librarian, “Thank you.” She left, leaving me in peace to begin my search. Orbis. Orbis. The name of this secret prison revolved around my head. I needed a map. I needed to find him.

The reference to the book was staring at Sherlock in the face. How could he not have seen it? It was so obvious. The only clue he had missed in the whole case. He would beat Moriarty this time, even if it would be his last. A life for a life.

I was tidying up the papers on his desk when I chanced upon the reference. He’d said he’d included all the paperwork when he submitted his CV, but seemed to have missed this particular one. Reading it, I could understand why – it wasn’t glowing, in fact it was the opposite.

A reference. A place you go when you want to be safe, this is a reference. This is fact, its absolute and it’s not going to change based on how you feel. It’s something you can show someone else to prove you arent insane

oh, references, where art thou?
APA, MLA, ASA, ACA, which art thou?
citations in the paragraphs,
but you’re true home is in the references page.

I didn’t think about referring back to those moments. I didn’t think about referring back to that time in my life at all, but I came to the conclusion that at best, that’s exactly what you were to me now. A reference point in the time span of my long, vapid life

Stella sat on the floor of the library. Back pressed against a bookshelf and tongue slipped out on to her bottom lip. The heavy reference book open in her lip. Her fingers moved softly over the words on the pages as she tried to find exactly what she was looking for.

A reference is can be a maker or breaker. You choose the wrong one and it can mess everything up that you’re trying to create. Or it can be perfect and compliment it exactly right.

Ryan just wrote a reference for Mags. A recommendation really. There’s also reference books. And references to old things. Meh. Can’t think of much today.

She keeps a library and fills it with emotions. She has none of her own to supply it with, but she takes the emotions of others and keeps them for future reference.

The reference book sat there innocently, as if it hadn’t just given me a black eye. I turned to Hunter and shouted “Why the hell would you use a book for evil?”
“Evil is such a strong word.” He replied. “I was only trying to knock you unconscious to steal your wallet so I could have some lunch money. Are you really opposed to me eating lunch>

In reference to the lost ark, I just wanted to say that its a great movie. So much adventure and diversity through that adventure. It makes me feel intimidated about writing because of how much there is to the story.

No reference to love was found in his biography or will. But his life was a love letter to every single soul. He smiled and sang all the time. The world kissed him back when he flew.

Tom Cross was my old boss. You can call him if you’d like a reference from when I used to work for him. He is as jolly as Santa Claus and a banjo player. He is quite a character but I loved working for him.

I was second away from banging my head against the desk. I had flipped through the reference book in my lap a thousands times and I still couldn’t find the answer to my question. My teach swore to me the answer was within its pages. I’m beginning to think him a sadist.

It’s what you think and then make a connection with something else with your friends and then make them laugh. This is the best when Doug and sterling try to speak in references. I can’t because I’m not as internet… or whatever savvy.

In reference to a reference, I refer to a reference as a source. Drinking from the too may polluted sources can clog the cogs of your mind. I refer to the next generation when I am afraid for their clogged cogs.

In reference to a reference, I refer to a reference as a source. Drinking from the too may polluted sources of this web of a world can clog the cogs of your mind. I refer to the next generation when I say: I am afraid for their clogged cogs.
From her own frame of reference, it was over almost as soon as it began. The smoke cleared quickly, and she coughed once, twice, and looked up.
She was the last one left.

I person who you can trust to tell you truth and not lead you astray. A good reference. When your mind has gone blank, turn to your “reference” and they’ll open a door to a new idea.

point of reference, point of order, theft, here to there. what more is there. this word floods me grey, fuck school and essay graders telling me my run-on sentences represent incomplete thoughts, i referenced the shit i didn’t invent and what i did invent i left to flow and stray and not take itself to seriously because speculation is infinite and i try to mimic that with my sentences

she held on to the top of the ladder with one hand, inhaling the smell of dusty old books, and stories, and safety, as her hands ran over the spines, searching for the right cover.

When writing a reference peoples minds have to think about those they are writing about. What are they like? What are their skills? How will they do at this job? It really makes one reflect on the person they are giving reference too.
I always feel guilty when I ask for a reference from a current employer. Of course because it let’s the cat out of the bag that I’m looking for another job, but also because I’m sure I rarely deserve it.
By Captain Awesome on 01.06.2013
When I think of references I think of nothing. Reference is a crappy word to give me. I wish you had given me something else to write about. Like, last time you gave me the word, “dirt.” And I wrote two paragraphs on the word dirt, but reference is just crap. I’m sorry. The end…yeah.

In reference to your prior question: no, I am not saine. My trees are red and, my grass purple. On this psychedelic plane I speak to those within reality. While I am not saine, my mind is quite sound. All one is able to do is to describe their surroundings, outright, or abstract, and just like you with stable brain waves, that is all I seek to accomplish. Now how can you call me a mad man?

She had been at school all day before spending every hour of the night working to catch up on her work. She was currently having trouble with sheets that reference three of her latest papers for biology, English, and creative writing.
