As a small child in England, I had this dream of going to Africa. We didn't have any money and I was a girl, so everyone except my mother laughed at it. When I left school, there was no money for me to go to university, so I went to secretarial college and got a job. -Jane Goodall

As New Zealanders, we've been in on the United Nations from the very beginning, played a role in the drafting of the charter – it means a lot to us that those processes are followed. -Helen Clark

Poland is an ally of the United States of America. It was our duty to show that we are a reliable, loyal, and predictable ally. America needed our help, and we had to give it. -Adam Michnik

I've been working at performing for five years now. I've been working in Australia and Spain and England. When I was only 15 or 16, 1 was performing in bars; I could have had legal problems, but it's also the only way to get to know what music is all about. -Andy Gibb

Victoria was just as much in love with me as I was with her. We could not bear to be apart for a single second. We were like two lovers shipwrecked on a desert island. There was no world outside our love. -Andy Gibb

Going back to Ireland involves at least six to seven emotional breakdowns for me per day. -Anjelica Huston

Rain is also very difficult to film, particularly in Ireland because it's quite fine, so fine that the Irish don't even acknowledge that it exists. -Alan Parker

Ireland and England are like two sisters; I would have them embrace like one brother. -Boyle Roche

Slander is worse than cannibalism. -John Chrysostom

I just lead my life as naturally, as normally as I possibly can. But I can't help it if controversy is hounding me day in and day out. I'm quite amazed sometimes by the way they go about it. I grow a beard and it lands up in the editorial in The Times of India. -Amitabh Bachchan

Most people today still believe, perhaps unconsciously, in the heliocentric universe every newspaper in the land has a section on astrology, yet few have anything at all on astronomy. -Hannes Alfven

When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system. -Kalpana Chawla

It's really sort of morbid, but she said her mother wanted to see me all her life. And when she died, she made just one request: that a picture of me be put into her casket. So somewhere in England, I'm in a casket. -Hank Snow

If I told you about a land of love, friend, would you follow me and come? -Yunus Emre

I'm William Wallace, and the rest of you will be spared. Go back to England and tell them… Scotland is free! -William Wallace

If the king loves music, there is little wrong in the land. -Mencius

I stepped on a land mine named Jayson Blair. -Howell Raines

Everybody gets too drunk sometimes; and even if everybody didn't, I have gotten too drunk sometimes. I haven't hurt anybody. In Ireland we drink a lot. It's part of our culture. I like drinking. I don't think it's a bad thing. -Andrea Corr

I was a star in England, but I've never been a star in America. Now I am. -Anna Lee

I love drugs, but I hate hangovers, and the hatred of the hangover wins by a landslide every time. -Margaret Cho

Our homeland is the whole world. Our law is liberty. We have but one thought, revolution in our hearts. -Dario Fo

I was really small when jazz broke through in England and I can still remember sneaking off to the living room to listen to it on the radio – much to my parent's disapproval. -Jeff Beck

The Homeland Security department doesn't have tasking authority in the intelligence community. They can ask for stuff, but they can't direct anything except inside their bureau. -David Hunt

If the people in Britain knew the nature and disposition of the New England people as well as we do they would not find so many friends in England as I suppose they do. -Nathaniel Smith

I started thinking about my relationship with my students; I'm this guy who comes in from book – and movie – land and descends on angel wings into their classroom. -Richard Price

The air of England has long been too pure for a slave, and every man is free who breathes it. -James Mansfield

My father was in the coal business in West Virginia. Both dad and mother were, however, originally from Massachusetts; New England, to them, meant the place to go if you really wanted an education. -John Knowles

There are enough Poles in Chicago to make up one of the largest cities in Poland. -Suzanne Fields

Churchill knew the importance of peace, and he also knew the price of it. Churchill finally got his voice, of course. He stressed strategy, but it was his voice that armed England at last with the old-fashioned moral concepts of honor and duty, justice and mercy. -Suzanne Fields

I know the lands are lit, with all the autumn blaze of Goldenrod. -Helen Hunt Jackson

It's a great challenge to come from little New Zealand and beat the odds in Hollywood. -Martin Henderson

I do not yet know why plants come out of the land or float in streams, or creep on rocks or roll from the sea. I am entranced by the mystery of them, and absorbed by their variety and kinds. Everywhere they are visible yet everywhere occult. -Liberty Hyde Bailey

I call on everyone of goodwill both in Ireland and abroad to join now in ensuring that the beginning of peace becomes a reality, before this year is out. Let us together open a new era in our history. -Albert Reynolds

At one point, when I was 20 and living in Kentucky, I got shot – it was a land dispute over six inches of property that ran a hundred yards through my grandfather's land. It was really over the honor of my family and that of another family. -Jack Bowman

I was born in Middlesex, England, which is really London. -Charles Keating

I think a moratorium probably is legal, and we should probably for a short period of time impose a moratorium so that we don't permit any additional landfill permits for the time being, so we don't exacerbate the problem. -Ed Rendell

And secondly, I would impose a significant state landfill tipping fee and use that tipping fee to fund the billion dollar bond issue that I want to create to produce the funds for all of the environmental challenges that we just went over. -Ed Rendell

I think if we're going to have to landfill trash, and I think we basically have to, we might as well get the upside for it and dedicate that upside to improving the environment in so many different ways. -Ed Rendell

Growing Greener doesn't produce money for farmland preservation or open space preservation. -Ed Rendell

I am inclined to believe that this is the land God gave to Cain. -Jacques Cartier

I knew I couldn't live in America and I wasn't ready to move to Europe so I moved to an island off the coast of America – New York City . -Spalding Gray

There isn't a single windmill owner in Holland who doesn't have a second job, for when there is no wind. -Johnny Ball

Ranchers need clean water for their stock, farmers need it for their crops, every employer needs it to stay in business, and every living thing needs it for life… The law needs to be clear to protect water quality and the rights of landowners. -Mark Udall

It'll work, if God, wind, leads, ice, snow, and all the hells of this damned frozen land are willing. -Matthew Henson

If I read not amiss, this powerful race will move down upon Mexico, down upon Central and South America, out upon the islands of the sea, over upon Africa and beyond. And can any one doubt that the results of this competition of races will be the 'survival of the fittest?' -Josiah Strong

Certainly one of the more common experiences in the jazz field is discovering someone new. Improvising musicians are capable of being musical travelers, voyagers. We want to join in on whatever we hear. There is a freedom to wander the musical landscape. -Gary Burton

I see it all the time in politics. If a candidate gets caught in a lie, he quickly tries to change the subject by throwing more mud at his opponent. The mud keeps flying until some of the slanderous material sticks. -Joe Scarborough

For a man who no longer has a homeland, writing becomes a place to live. -Theodor W. Adorno

I get excited by landscape. -Adrienne Kennedy

I shoot an arrow into the air, where it lands I do not care: I get my arrows wholesale! -Curly Howard

And I used to go the punk clubs such as a gay club in Poland Street that everyone would go to because it was the only place you could go to looking like that without getting beaten senseless. -Gary Numan

No, my family is Russian, Georgian, via Ellis Island. -Mitch Kapor

It's just that if you're not disruptive everything seems to be repeated endlessly – not so much the good things but the bland things – the ordinary things – the weaker things get repeated- the stronger things get suppressed and held down and hidden. -Robert Adamson

The landlady of a boarding-house is a parallelogram – that is, an oblong angular figure, which cannot be described, but which is equal to anything. -Stephen Leacock

It is tradition in Ireland that you're given money for your first communion. -Roma Downey

We're nondenominational. I come from Northern Ireland, and we've had religious wars for years. I didn't want to create an illusion that my God is better than your God. So our show is a spiritual show, not a religious show. -Roma Downey

Continuity is one of the things I like about New England. -Tracy Kidder

In a very basic way, a prominent landmark such as Mt. Holyoke tells you where you are. They let you know that you're not the first person in a place. -Tracy Kidder

Growing up in New England, being schooled and classically trained, it needed to shake, it needed to evolve. -Emeril Lagasse

I'm absolutely strict about it. When I land, I put my watch right, and I don't care what I feel like, I will go to bed at half past eleven. If that means going to bed early or late, that's what I live by. As soon as you get there, live by that time. -David Attenborough

On landing at New York I caught the yellow fever. The kind man who commanded the ship that brought me from France took charge of me and placed me under the care of two Quaker ladies. To their skillful and untiring care I may safely say I owe my life. -John James Audubon

The whole idea of doing the Hollywood thing never even occurred to me. When you grow up on the East coast, Hollywood seems like this fantasy land and you don't think that people can actually make a living there. -David Steinberg

This morning's scene is good and fine, Long rain has not harmed the land. -Du Fu

England is so defined, the class system, your education. I think what was unique about the Canterbury scene. -Kevin Ayers

Music is an art that expresses the inexpressible. It rises far above what words can mean or the intelligence define. Its domain is the imponderable and impalpable land of the unconscious. -Charles Munch

I have a lot of friends and fans in Orlando, and I'd love to see them again. -Bobby Sherman

One I built when I was a kid, and it was a real miniature of Disneyland. I fell in love with the park when I went there with my parents on my 12th birthday. -Bobby Sherman

And it was only released in London last week, so when I go back to England Monday or whatever, I am expecting heaps of adulation. I'm hoping there is. If that doesn't happen I will be disappointed. -David Thewlis

I got a divorce eleven years later on the grounds of cruelty, which is still not easy in England. -Dinah Sheridan

It is quite possible we may have formed entirely erroneous ideas of what we actually see. The greenish gray patches may not be seas at all, nor the ruddy continents, solid land. Neither may the obscuring patches be clouds of vapor. -Edward E. Barnard

If I wasn't bound to Brooklyn, due to my own personal reasons like taking care of my mother and the fact that this is where the band is based, I would probably move to Iceland. -Peter Steele

America feels like home as much as it does here. Although it's a strange situation as I feel almost like I'm in no-man's land some of the time, because although I'm a resident, I still can't vote so I don't really have a say in what goes on where I live. -Rick Allen

Last year, I co-sponsored the Highlands Conservation Act and in a bipartisan effort we passed the bill through Congress. -Sue Kelly

Digital Chocolate has 60% of its developers in Finland where the sun never sets in the summer and there is nothing to do outside in the winter, so we are very productive! -Trip Hawkins

There are two traditions in Northern Ireland. There are two main religious denominations. But there is only one true moral denomination. And it wants peace. -David Trimble

Apple is in a position they've been in a lot of times before. They're like Moses showing the way to the promised land, but they don't actually go there. -Tim O'Reilly

It's a tough life being a pop star. You know, at the end of the day when you've paid all the bills and put the kids through college and that, you know, there's only enough left for a small island off the South Pacific. -Larry Mullen, Jr.

The one major disappointment I have is that I didn't get a hundred against India in India. I got lots of runs against India in England including a double hundred I am very proud of. -David Gower

One likes to think one grows as a writer as one ages, else all you get is an 'old' young writer. Beyond that is the changing landscape of the universe and the stories I choose to tell. -Raymond E. Feist

Last summer a second unit production crew went to France and shot scenes for several of this season's episodes. They shot costumed actors in and around real castles and landmarks, we couldn't possibly have duplicated here in Hollywood. -Vic Morrow

If we don't take effective measures now, the Netherlands could be torn between two extreme rights. -Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Neither let us be slandered from our duty by false accusations against us, nor frightened from it by menaces of destruction to the Government nor of dungeons to ourselves. -George Haven Putnam

We don't have a full black community in Boston. Our people are scattered. There's a middle class where I live in Highland Park but it's not like a piece of Washington or Chicago. -Henry Hampton

An interesting thing happened in 1989, right as I was graduating: the stock market crashed and really changed the landscape of the art world in New York. It made the kind of work I was doing interesting to galleries that wouldn't have normally been interested in it. -Matthew Barney

The most important sign in Matthew has to be the restoration of the Jews to the land in the rebirth of Israel. -Hal Lindsey

The Highlander was a documentary, and events happened in real time. -Dana Snyder

The possession of land seems to be a greater gratification to the pride and independence of men. -George Richards Minot

Oh, the ignorance of us upon whom Providence did not sufficiently smile to permit us to be born in New England. -Horace Porter

The event of the landing of these brethren upon our shores is to be, not without its beneficial effect, as well to the colored population of this country, as it promises to be to ill-fated Africa. -Lewis Tappan

I enjoyed growing up part of my life in Virginia Beach. We had the ocean and the beach and a beautiful landscape. We were outdoors all the time and we played outside. -Mark Ruffalo

Well I think it has always been a mistake to reduce the peace process in Ireland to a decommissioning process. -Martin McGuinness

Sinn Fein is the fastest growing party on the island of Ireland. -Martin McGuinness

The problem with a lot of Chinese is that they put up divisions between Taiwanese, Hong Kong natives, mainlanders. We are never united. I really hope that the Chinese can be more united. -Martin Yan

Gleason used to rack balls for me when he was a kid in Brooklyn and in Long Island. -Minnesota Fats

In England and America people tend to graze all day long, but I think it's such a waste to be constantly picking at food because you then can't enjoy a proper full meal when the time comes. -Nigella Lawson

I have long been interested in landscape history, and when younger and more robust I used to do much tramping of the English landscape in search of ancient field systems, drove roads, indications of prehistoric settlement. -Penelope Lively

They want to derail peace because they want to plunge Northern Ireland back into armed conflict. -Peter Mandelson

But I'll try to immerse myself in as many of the formal characteristics of site as possible in the landscape. -Richard Serra

For our immediate family and relatives, Canada was a land of opportunity. -Sidney Altman

Indeed, we are privileged to have been afforded the opportunity to study Nature and to follow our own thoughts and inspirations in a time of relative tranquillity and in a land with a generous and forward-looking government. -Sidney Altman

The whole notion of land property rights in the Arab world is different from that in Europe. -William Odom

I tested a lot of old cornbread recipes and most of them were bland or tough. -Jeremy Jackson

And getting married this autumn was certainly an additional incentive to spend rather more time in England. -Jill Dando

This kind of music was just hitting England, so we were getting this following in clubs in Birmingham just cause we were trying to do something different. -Jim Capaldi

I maintain that the existing corn laws are bad, because they have given a monopoly of food to the landed interest over every other class and over every other interest in the kingdom. -Joseph Hume

Fortunately for England, all her imports are raw materials. -Joseph Hume

At the present moment the people of England are only three-quarters fed, and the result of this improvement in the export of our manufactures would be, that they would be entirely fed. -Joseph Hume

Land, in England, is valuable, because we have highly-paid artisans to consume the produce on the spot. -Joseph Hume

Destroy or take away the employment and wages of those artisans – which the corn laws in a great measure do – and you will, ere long, render the land in Great Britain of as little value as it is in other countries. -Joseph Hume

You're basing your laws and your whole outlook on natural life on mythology. It won't work. That's why you have all these problems in the world. Name them: India, Pakistan, Ireland. Name them-all these problems. They're all religious problems. -Jack Kevorkian

We should embrace our immigrant roots and recognize that newcomers to our land are not part of the problem, they are part of the solution. -Roger Mahony

Do you want Columbus to go across the ocean, or do you want to put a message in a bottle and hope that it lands somewhere? I'd rather have actual people be there. Whether they look like Americans or like the inhabitants of some other country, depends on who has the most drive. -Kevin J. Anderson

Until 1914 I loved to travel; I often went to Italy and once spent a few months in India. Since then I have almost entirely abandoned travelling, and I have not been outside of Switzerland for over ten years. -Hermann Hesse

So I think that we're in a very heightened and somewhat unusual period of politics and polling around the countries that New Zealanders take close interest in. -Jim Bolger

If a man were living in isolation his income would be literally his product. Make him the monarch and owner of an island, and the fruits that he raises and the clothing that he makes constitute, in themselves, his income. This ceases to be true when trading begins. -John Bates Clark

Altho that is so, Ireland has always denied and Ireland still denies that the Union was binding upon her either legally or morally. And here on this historic occasion we have assembled to renew our protest and to place it upon record. -John Edward Redmond

By the time May rolls around, I'm probably going to want to spend a month on an island. But if Steven Spielberg or Steven Soderbergh or any number of directors were to say 'Hey, there's this role, are you interested?' I'd be there in a flash. -Marg Helgenberger

Prior to Elephant I'd taken about six years of acting classes in Portland, but there's not a huge market there. The only thing we have is commercial stuff, and that didn't really appeal to me. So this is really a dream come true. -John Robinson

He told me I didn't understand, that we were from the bleak industrial wastes of North England, or something, and that we didn't understand the Internet. I told him Fall fans invented the Internet. They were on there in 1982. -Mark E. Smith

I think England will win a Test. My concern is Australia will probably win two. -Geoffrey Boycott

I can't think of any more important issue. If we get this right, we'll not only preserve our landscape for future generations we'll be able to generate I think more investment and more job opportunities in the inland and we sure as hell need those jobs. -John Anderson

When I was a child in the 1940s and early 1950s, my parents and grandparents spoke of Britain as home, and New Zealand had this strong sense of identity and coherence as being part of the commonwealth and a the identity of its people as being British. -Michael King

I see the great continuities in New Zealand history as being decency and common sense and up until now when we've confronted these things we've been able to talk them through, and I'm sure we will with this issue as well. -Michael King

If I remember rightly Holland for instance has something like 45, and it's a much smaller country. In comparison we have very few and they are very badly financed. -Richard Rogers

I stayed with them for about a year up there and, at night, worked over in Long Island at a club called The High Hat Club which was like a pseudo jazz / blues place. -William Bell

Regarding comments attributed to me in the Los Angeles Times – allegedly made on a bus trip from Germany to Holland in 1998 – I emphatically denounce such comments as false. -Paul Crouch

The current system punishes communities which make the investment in creating landfills, only to have them filled by states which refuse to adequately address their waste issues. -Paul Gillmor

You can go at the premiere it's at Disneyland. -Emily Blunt

But I fear, my lot being cast in Scotland, that beauty would not be content. -Anne Boyd

At first I wanted to be a jockey. I rode horses in Cleveland but I kept falling off and I was afraid of horses. So there wasn't much of a future in it. -Tim Conway

There's like a special group of people that come from different parts of the planet to study with me. It's nice. I just gave a workshop in Boston at the New England Conservatory, which was really nice. -Charlie Haden

My affiliation with England is borne out by the fact that I do come back for periodic visits. -George Shearing

Mike and Heather and I rapped once or twice in New York and then we all wound up on a train together on the way out to Maryland. I think it was about a month and a half from the time we got cast until the time we shot the thing. -Joshua Leonard

Since fantasy isn't about technology, the accelleration has no impact at all. But it's changed the lives of fantasy writers and editors. I get to live in England and work for a New York publisher! -Terri Windling

When I was younger, I was in love with everything about the British Isles, from British folklore to Celtic music. That was always where my passions were as a young girl, and so I studied folklore as a college student in England and Ireland. -Terri Windling

In more recent years, I've become more and more fascinated with the indigenous folklore of this land, Native American folklore, and also Hispanic folklore now that I live in the Southwest. -Terri Windling

I divide my time between homes in Arizona and England, six months a year in each place. -Terri Windling

I've only been living in England for the last 10 years, if you don't count my student years. -Terri Windling

I used to paint landscapes without any people in them but now I paint people who happen to be in a particular place. They might be outside a pub, or on a beach or in a studio. They might have clothes on or they might not. -Peter Wright

Because the competitive landscape of the web is such that the site which looks and works best gets the most traffic, developers and designers put a premium on the presentation of that content and let structural markup take a back seat. -Mike Davidson

I was a small kid from Huntington, Long Island. I never imagined that anything like that would happen to me. -Gerry Cooney

It was easy to present figures demonstrating the contrast between lead work in the United States under conditions of neglect and ignorance, and comparable work in England and Germany, under intelligent control. -Alice Hamilton

I grew up in Cambridge in England, and my love of mathematics dates from those early childhood days. -Andrew Wiles

I always thought it hadn't influenced me very much, but I heard from many people from England that many motives from German fairytales are to be found in my books. -Cornelia Funke

I have two Iceland horses, a very hairy dog called Looney, and a guinea pig. -Cornelia Funke

One of the attractive things about being in Scotland is that we have a very good pipeline of new people coming into the company from the excellent universities around us. -David Milne

We are also fortunate in being in quite a sheltered environment, in terms of people moving on to do other things, because there are relatively few companies in Scotland that are looking for the skill set that we've developed. -David Milne

We opened a design center in the South of England last year as part of our strategy for being close to our customers and developing innovative products for exciting new markets. -David Milne

I cannot but be grieved to go from my native land, and especially from that part of it for whom and with whom I desired only to live; yet the dreadful apprehensions I have of what is coming upon this land may help to make me submissive to this providence, though more bitter. -Donald Cargill

And for myself, I think for the present He is calling me to another land; but how long shall be my abode, or what employment He has for me there, I know not, for I cannot think He is taking me there to live and lurk only. -Donald Cargill

I'm looking forward to coming back, back to Earth, the landing, the views. -Duane G. Carey

Now, I've never flown in space; but the folks who have say that on landing day, you know, you've just spent maybe a week and a half, sometimes two weeks in orbit and you're used to the things happening slowly in space. -Duane G. Carey

In America the most widespread type of forest is the evergreen coniferous woodland of the north. -Ellsworth Huntington

That generation of Germans, along with volunteers from Denmark, Holland, even England and the Free India division and so on, we Europeans were alert and awake to the danger of Bolshevism. -Ernst Zundel

The constitutions of Maryland and New York are founded in higher wisdom. -Ezra Stiles

But Connecticut and Rhode Island have originally realized the most perfect polity as to a legislature. -Ezra Stiles

No issue is more important to this Congress than securing our borders and protecting our homeland, and I guarantee it is very important to our constituents. -Ginny Brown-Waite

I was born in Poland I came to Sweden when I was eight and always wanted to act and suddenly ended up in a Bond movie which was for me at that time absolutely enormous. -Izabella Scorupco

Now the master paid a number of visits to England and, as a Cambridge man, it is a source of pride that he taught there for a longer period than elsewhere in my country. -John G. D. Clark

Vicksburg lies on top of a bluff on the east side of a large tongue of land jutting out into the Mississippi. -Knute Nelson

The anguish in London is a vivid reminder of why we cannot relent in taking the steps necessary to defend our homeland from the present terrorist threat. -Mike Pence

But the universe, as a collection of finite things, presents itself as a kind of island situated in a pure vacuity to which time, regarded as a series of mutually exclusive moments, is nothing and does nothing. -Muhammad Iqbal

One hundred years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, the Spanish government issued a decree authorizing the enslavement of the American Indian as in accord with the law of God and man. -Nelson A. Miles

No administration could stop the tidal wave of immigration that swept over the land; no political party could restrain or control the enterprise of our people, and no reasonable man could desire to check the march of civilization. -Nelson A. Miles

It did not come naturally; in fact, it would be difficult to conceive of any more dogmatic and less tolerant people than the first settlers on New England shores. -Paul P. Harris

If there ever was a militant religion, it was that of early New England. -Paul P. Harris

Descendants of New England pioneers are proud of their ancestry and glad to proclaim the fact that so far as the United States are concerned, New England is in deed the cradle of religious liberty. -Paul P. Harris

While the struggle for religious liberty had proceeded without large-scale bloodshed in New England and elsewhere in the United States, the struggle for political liberty had not fared so well. -Paul P. Harris

Some of my ancestors were religious dissenters who came to America over three hundred years ago. Others were abolitionists in New England in the eighteen forties and fifties. -Pete Seeger

I support exemptions from the estate tax to ensure that when Maine farm owners die, their families will be able to continue to farm the land that they have protected and lived on, often for generations. -Tom Allen

But like the rest of the country, Maine has reached an impasse, for most of the mercury that fouls our skies, waters and land comes from outside our borders. -Tom Allen

Maine's long and cold winters may help keep our State's population low, but our harsh climate also accounts for what is unique and valuable about our land and our people. -Tom Allen

The offshore ocean area under U.S. jurisdiction is larger than our land mass, and teems with plant and animal life, mineral resources, commerce, trade, and energy sources. -Tom Allen

We need to get serious about combating gang violence on Long Island, and the entire nation. -Tim Bishop

In my district, the budget scales back and eliminates several long-term shore protection projects important to the safety and economic security of Long Island. -Tim Bishop

The Long Island Sound is an environmentally unique estuary that needs to be protected. -Tim Bishop

The residents and elected officials of Long Island have fought vigorously for many years and spent millions of dollars to preserve the quality of life that the Long Island Sound offers. -Tim Bishop

Because our homeland and very survival are once more at stake, the American people can't afford to treat this new war against terrorism like they did Vietnam. -David Hackworth

No man is an island. No man stands alone. -Dennis Brown

The Little Friend is a long book. It's also completely different from my first novel: different landscape, different characters, different use of language and diction, different approach to story. -Donna Tartt

While Haiti has recently celebrated more than 200 years of independence from French colonial rule, the citizens of the island remain vulnerable to poverty, poor health, and political chaos. -Eliot Engel

I represent a district covering Rockland, Westchester and Bronx counties, all of which are part of the 9 million people that this water is so important for. -Eliot Engel

Six months after that, I left Taiwan, first for Hong Kong and then for mainland China, where I spent another three months studying still more Chinese and generally kicking around the country. -Eric Allin Cornell

It is like a voyage of discovery into unknown lands, seeking not for new territory but for new knowledge. It should appeal to those with a good sense of adventure. -Frederick Sanger

Indeed it is very hard, when we have let the King's subjects have so much of our lands for so little value. -Joseph Brant

I stress the uniqueness of the Australian landscape and its metaphysical and mythic content. -Arthur Boyd

My place in Scotland is in the middle of nowhere, so you've just got a keyboard, guitar, a little drum machine and you know if you can work stuff out like that, if you can hammer out songs that sound good just with those three things and a voice, you're on your way. -Jay Kay

Perhaps… I mean there are people who defend that it as an art. I don't. I like it but it's not an art form as far as I'm concerned, and yet it's a similar thing, once you can't land those jumps, you're disqualified – that precludes it from ever becoming a serious art form. -Mark Morris

If a queen bee were crossed with a Friesian bull, would not the land flow with milk and honey? -Oliver St. John

One of the reasons I continue to speak out is that the solutions to the counterterrorism problem involve other parts of the national security community – especially other elements of the Department of Defense, State, FBI, Homeland Security and the staff. -John Poindexter

England is very interested as well, and other countries if I could speak the languages! -Miranda Otto

Writing Part of the Scenery has been a very different experience. I have been reminded of people and events, real and imaginary which have been part of my life. This book is a celebration of the land which means so much to me. -Mary Wesley

I don't think there's much point in bemoaning the state of the world unless there's some way you can think of to improve it. Otherwise, don't bother writing a book; go and find a tropical island and lie in the sun. -Peter Singer

When I was in England doing Romeo and Juliet as a child star, I was interviewed by the British press, who are even more vicious and cruel than the Americans. So I have been extremely guarded ever since. -Claire Bloom

The deadlines are much, much longer with books. When I was a reporter, a lot of times I'd come in at 8:30 a.m., get an assignment right away, interview somebody, turn the story in by 9:30, and have the finished story in the paper that landed on my desk by noon. -Margaret Haddix

We just did a show in Providence, Rhode Island, and we got three puppy shots before we even got on the air, which was great. Although sometimes you get flashed by some puppies that you'd rather not see. They're more like mongrels. -Jerry Lawler

If Japan had been near to either England or France, war would have broken out long ago. -Townsend Harris

It will be quite satisfactory if you open them gradually, as the circumstances may require; but the President assures you that this will not be the case if you make a treaty with England first. -Townsend Harris

If you make a treaty first with the United States and settle the matter of the opium trade, England cannot change this, though she should desire to do so. -Townsend Harris

If I write in my name to the agents of England and France residing in Asia and inform them that Japan is ready to make a commercial treaty with their countries, the number of steamers will be reduced from fifty to two or three. -Townsend Harris

It's hard not to be excited when you're going to find a way to land on the moon. -Alan Bean

A week or so ago I did a two hour book review in Baltimore Maryland. -Betty Hill

America does not fight for land, glory or riches. -Virginia Foxx

Coltrane would do what you'd get a Roland Pro Tools module to do but with a group of jazz musicians. -Colin Greenwood

I think childhood is to everyone a lost land. -Dennis Potter

Especially with the predators, one of the things that gets these programs going on a local level is for our land management agencies to build partnerships with surrounding communities and landowners. -Gale Norton

Our responsibility for BLM lands is multiple-use, meaning a variety of needs and uses. -Gale Norton

The selfless actions of these heroes have removed them from their families, businesses and homeland to fight, so that others may experience the liberty awaiting our troops upon safe return to America. -Jim Walsh

There was always a lot of American music in England until, obviously when the Beatles came around, then there was a shift towards English music, but before then American music was the main thing. -John Deacon

Then we did what we called basically I suppose a club tour in England, which was the time I think that our second album came out, we club toured around the whole country where the venues were hold to five hundreds upwards to that sort of thing you know. -John Deacon

That's what I loved about Temptation Island. I don't even know why they did it. -Kathy Griffin

My goal is to be living back in Canada as soon as I can, hopefully somewhere in the Gulf Islands. -Nicholas Lea

I am in Boston right now, in fact, to do work at the New England Historical Genealogical Library, where I'm trying to finish up tracing my lineage back to the seventeenth century. -Rick Moody

Instead of having to be a member of the Royal Society to do science, the way you had to be in England in the 17th, 18th, centuries today pretty much anybody who wants to do it can, and the information that they need to do it is there. -Seth Lloyd

I've never had a bank account in Switzerland since 1984. Why would the Swiss do this to me? Maybe the Swiss are trying to divert attention from the Holocaust gold scandal. -Benazir Bhutto

Some otherwise sane scientists have seriously proposed that we tuck this deadly garbage under the edges of drifting continents but how can they be sure the moving land masses will climb over the waste and not just push it forward? -David R. Brower

It's like turning the space program over to the Long Island Railroad. -David R. Brower

We've got to search back to our last known safe landmark. I can't say exactly where, but I think it's back there at the start of the Industrial Revolution, we began applying energy in vast amounts to tools with which we began tearing the environment apart. -David R. Brower

They have stolen the public lands. They have grasped all to themselves, and by their unprincipled greed brought a crisis of unparalleled distress on forty millions of people, who have natural resources to feed, clothe and shelter the whole human race. -Denis Kearney

We are men, and propose to live like men in this free land, without the contamination of slave labor, or die like men, if need be, in asserting the rights of our race, our country, and our families. -Denis Kearney

England is better only because I stand out there as 'unusual'. -Emo Philips

The system has for its object an increase of persons that are to intervene between the producer and the consumer, living on the product of the land and labour of others, diminishing the power of the first, and increasing the number of the last. -Henry Charles Carey

By adopting the 'free trade,' or British, system, we place ourselves side by side with the men who have ruined Ireland and India, and are now poisoning and enslaving the Chinese people. -Henry Charles Carey

It the British System is the most gigantic system of slavery the world has yet seen, and therefore it is that freedom gradually disappears from every country over which England is enabled to obtain control. -Henry Charles Carey

The natural consequence of our submission, even in part, to the system that looks to compelling the export of raw products, the exhaustion of the land, the cheapening of labour, and the export of the labourer. -Henry Charles Carey

As regards this country, in which protection has always to some extent existed, it is the best customer that England ever had, and our demands upon her grow most steadily and regularly under protection. -Henry Charles Carey

'Early stages' is when the cancer is completely contained within the prostate. If it is detected when the cancer is entirely in the gland, the chance for full recovery is at its highest. -Len Dawson

When there wasn't any money involved, for all intents and purposes, nobody gave a damn. But now the land, supposedly worthless, is seen for what it really is: an incredibly valuable asset. -Neil Abercrombie

Land in Hawaii is money. What I'm talking about here is ceded land – land that belonged to the kingdom and was ceded to the republic and then to the state when we achieved statehood. -Neil Abercrombie

Western concepts of ownership and privatization came in and clashed with that. So land began to be exchanged. -Neil Abercrombie

Land began to be seen as something to be owned privately and exploited for private interests, and never was entirely reconciled with the old ideas that land should be utilized in common for the good of all. -Neil Abercrombie

A good portion of the airport is on ceded lands, and lease money was paid for that. So the state's collecting lease money because all of a sudden 'worthless' land now has an airport on it. -Neil Abercrombie

So as soon as the land was worth something and there was money in the bank, all of a sudden everybody got interested in non-discrimination, in who's really going to administer this stuff. -Neil Abercrombie

In the event of a victory over Germany by Soviet Russia and England, Bolshevism in Europe would inevitably follow. Under these circumstances I would prefer to see Germany win the war. -Pierre Laval

I do not intend, we do not intend, that any party shall survive, if we can help it, that will lay the confiscating hand upon Americans in the interest of England or of Europe. -Richard Parks Bland

They believed that Britain was in Ireland defending their own interests, therefore the Irish had the right to use violence to put them out. My argument was that that type of thinking was out of date. -John Hume

I grew up in the West, grew up on the land, was educated as a geologist. -Bruce Babbitt

I'm going to go out and get everybody together and say I think we ought to protect this for generations to come. Now, let's get down to work and walk the land and talk about the conflicts and get everybody involved. -Bruce Babbitt

The early American arrived at a land of which he knew nothing. -Francis Parker Yockey

I have bought pole vault equipment, the landing areas, posts, which costs a lot of money. We pay for coaches. -Sergei Bubka

In this first testing ground of the atomic bomb I have seen the most terrible and frightening desolation in four years of war. It makes a blitzed Pacific island seem like an Eden. The damage is far greater than photographs can show. -Wilfred Burchett

Even on a personal note, my dressing table downstairs is crowded with things, like a mini landscape. It's a city with buildings and towers and roads. There's a pool and a little park. When I move something around it becomes a different tableau. -Tony Curtis

Who knows but that England may revive in New South Wales when it has sunk in Europe. -Joseph Banks

The problem with Ireland is that it's a country full of genius, but with absolutely no talent. -Hugh Leonard

My mother's background was Scottish. She came from an old family, some of whom lived in upper New York State and some of whom had come over from Scotland. -Alan Hovhaness

The interesting thing is, while we die of diseases of affluence from eating all these fatty meats, our poor brethren in the developing world die of diseases of poverty, because the land is not used now to grow food grain for their families. -Jeremy Rifkin

When we seed millions of acres of land with these plants, what happens to foraging birds, to insects, to microbes, to the other animals, when they come in contact and digest plants that are producing materials ranging from plastics to vaccines to pharmaceutical products? -Jeremy Rifkin

Down in the south, it's how we find the brownfield sites without taking too much land take to meet the tremendous demand for housing, and that's what I've done. -John Prescott

Anything to do with the land, I love. -Chris LeDoux

I consulted a Chinese herbalist and spent two weeks on an island off the coast of Zanzibar. I was away from any kind of contemporary technology. -Francesca Annis

At Leeds I've tried to concentrate on my club form, but you get caught up in all the World Cup fever once you come back to Ireland and see all the Irish boys again. -Robbie Keane

With slight risk of exaggeration you could say that he walked almost every mile of the Indian land. -Satish Kumar

We would not have our politics distracted and embittered by the dissensions of other lands. -Henry Cabot Lodge

True, other countries are helping us. Germany is determined to provide substantial help. So are the Netherlands and other states. But a day will come when we have to count on our own resources. -Eduard Shevardnadze

Atreyu comes from a land called Fantasia. It's an imaginary land. -Noah Hathaway

Herein lies our problem. If we level that much land to grow rice and whatever, then no other animal could live there except for some insect pest species. Which is very unfortunate. -Steve Irwin

The first one, obviously, was walking into my office at eight o'clock in the morning on Wednesday, and being told there was a telephone call saying that there was an incident at Three Mile Island, and that it had shut down and that beyond that we didn't know. -William Scranton

And at ten, or whatever time, in the morning we had the press conference, what we knew is there had been an incident at Three Mile Island, that it was shut down, that there was water that had escaped but it was contained. -William Scranton

Finally, I also come in recognition of the great work that has been undertaken by the NGOs and UN agencies that have been active for many years here, especially through the local staff and international staff here in Somaliland and in Somalia at large. -Jan Egeland

I think in England you eat too much sugar and meat and not enough vegetables. -Arsene Wenger

In the case of the stomach, however, the nerves of the glandular cells were always severed when constructing an artificially isolated pouch and this, naturally, affected the normal work of the stomach. -Ivan Pavlov

As was to be expected, the discovery of the nervous apparatus of the salivary glands immediately impelled physiologists to seek a similar apparatus in other glands lying deeper in the digestive canal. -Ivan Pavlov

Our experiments not only proved the existence of a nervous apparatus in the above-mentioned glands, but also disclosed some facts clearly showing the participation of these nerves in normal activity. -Ivan Pavlov

From the described experiment it is clear that the mere act of eating, the food even not reaching the stomach, determines the stimulation of the gastric glands. -Ivan Pavlov

Appetite, craving for food, is a constant and powerful stimulator of the gastric glands. -Ivan Pavlov

The Church in England is the Church of England. -Joseph Barber Lightfoot

The residence of the Plymouth settlers in the Netherlands, and the later conquest of the Dutch colonies, had brought the Americans into contact with the singularly wise and free institutions of the Dutch. -Albert Bushnell Hart

The Stuart sovereigns of England steadily attempted to strengthen their power, and the resistance to that effort caused an immense growth of Parliamentary influence. -Albert Bushnell Hart

More emphasis was thus thrown upon the local governments than in England. -Albert Bushnell Hart

In any event, colonization and the grant of lands were provincial matters. -Albert Bushnell Hart

The participation of the people in their own government was the more significant, because the colonies actually had what England only seemed to have, – three departments of government. -Albert Bushnell Hart

The first thing I do is lay out that melody and figure out how it has to hold here and then finish to land here, because you know in advance you're going to want the melody to catch four things in the action. -Danny Elfman

Orlando's a really cool guy. They hired him for 'Lord of the Rings' out of drama school. He's very new at this still and doesn't have a lot of experience. So we were in this together and we've tried to help each other out. We felt very equal which was good. -Diane Kruger

When you're Judy Garland and you want something, you just pick up the phone and call somebody. Anybody. -Lorna Luft

The situation in the West Bank and Gaza involves a military occupation amid urban guerrilla warfare, analogous to the British security measures in Northern Island, that hopefully will end with a cease-fire. -Jack Schwartz
