Balkhash City quotes by Neil Gaiman
#1. When he had first arrived, he had found London huge, odd, fundamentally incomprehensible, with only the Tube map, that elegant multicolored topographical display of underground railway lines and stations, giving it any semblance of order. Gradually he realized that the Tube map was a handy fiction that made life easier but bore no resemblance to the reality of the shape of the city above. It was like belonging to a political party, he thought once, proudly, and then, having tried to explain the resemblance between the Tube map and politics, at a party, to a cluster of bewildered strangers, he had decided in the future to leave political comment to others. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Balkhash City quotes by Nick Hornby
#2. Manchester United would have retained the Premiership if they'd won this game – or, of course, if they'd won any of the other games they drew during the course of the season. Or, seeing as one extra point would have done the trick, if they'd drawn any of the games they lost, especially the two against Manchester City. Or, seeing as they lost the trophy on goal difference, if their victories had been achieved with a bigger winning margin. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Balkhash City quotes by David Letterman
#3. Unusual weather for New York City. Today it was 68 and foggy. No, wait a minute, that's me. I'm sorry, that's me. #Quote by David Letterman
Balkhash City quotes by Michael Connelly
#4. You build a city in the desert, water it with false hopes and false idols, and eventually this is what happens. The desert reclaims it, turns it arid, leaves it barren. Human tumbleweeds drift across its streets, predators hide in the rocks. #Quote by Michael Connelly
Balkhash City quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#5. You live in the city? You live in the graveyard! You want to be resurrected? Apply to the nature! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Balkhash City quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#6. Now Cain (whose name means 'possession') is the founder of the earthly city, and Enoch ('dedication') is the son in whose name the city was founded. This indicates that this city has its beginning and end on this earth, where there is no hope of anything beyond what can be seen in this world. In contrast with him is Seth, whose name means 'resurrection'. He #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Balkhash City quotes by David Bockino
#7. These visitors remain far removed from the conversations between archaeologists, historians, and government officials concerning Bagan's legacy. Instead, they arrive intrigued by the cover photo of so many Myanmar guidebooks: a panoramic shot of the sprawling, temple-filled plains of a grand ancient city. To the vast majority of these tourists, Bagan isn't a complex matrix of preservation, economic growth, and cultural tradition. It isn't a place to be debated or discussed or analyzed. To many of these tourists, Bagan is simply a place to look around, to take pictures, to buy souvenirs. To them, Bagan is a postcard. This #Quote by David Bockino
Balkhash City quotes by Nicos Hadjicostis
#8. The merchant increases the speed of the city. The musician slows it down. The merchant intensifies the urban stress, the noise, the chaos. The musician makes you slow down, find your center. This holds true in all cities and countries. #Quote by Nicos Hadjicostis
Balkhash City quotes by Moby
#9. LA is such a crumbling mess of a city. Basically in all my years of travelling, I haven't found another city in the western world that interest me as much as Los Angeles - which might sound like heresy, but most cities, history has already happened and the people living there are sort of living on the bones of the thousand years of history that's already happened there. Whereas LA is always reinventing itself. #Quote by Moby
Balkhash City quotes by Russell Kirk
#10. The automobile, practical since 1906, was proceeding to disintegrate and stamp anew the pattern of communication, manners, and city life in the United States, by 1918; before long, men would begin to see that the automobile, and the mass production techniques which made its possible, could alter the national character and morality more thoroughly than could the most absolute of tyrants. As a mechanical Jacobin, it rivaled the dynamo. The productive process which made these vehicles cheap was still more subversive of the old ways than was the gasoline engine itself. #Quote by Russell Kirk
Balkhash City quotes by Sarah Monette
#11. The river runs through the heart of the city, and braiding around and over and under the river, the city's rail system is a welter of tarnished silver ribbons. #Quote by Sarah Monette
Balkhash City quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#12. Every returning New Yorker asks the question: Is this still my city? I have a ready answer, cloaked in obstinate despair: It is. And if it's not, I will love it all the more. I will love it to the point where it becomes mine again. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Balkhash City quotes by Cassandra Clare
#13. Sed lex, dura lex #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Balkhash City quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#14. One of the greatest indicators of how much truth and honesty is in a country, is easily seen by observing how people drive around the city. What is their attitude to the rules of road safety? What is their attitude towards other commuters? Do they try to beat the system by all means? Do they try to get their way by hook or by crook, or they follow the rules? That is also part of corruption! #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Balkhash City quotes by John Petrucci
#15. To be in Boston, which is a great city and which is full of many colleges and young kids, and to be around that many people that were at the same point in their lives, who played guitar or whatever instrument - it was just perfect. It was a great environment. #Quote by John Petrucci
Balkhash City quotes by Cassandra Clare
#16. I may not believe in sin," he said, "but I do feel guilt. We Shadowhunters live by a code, and that code isn't flexible. Honor, fault, penance, those are real to us, and they have nothing to do with religion and everything to do with who we are. This is who I am, Clary," he said desperately. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Balkhash City quotes by Robert Desnos
#17. Ebony Life"

A frightening stillness will mark that day
And the shadow of streetlights and fire-alarms will exhaust the light
All things, the quietest and the loudest, will be silent
The suckling brats will die
The tugboats the locomotives the wind will glide by in silence
We will hear the great voice which coming from far away will pass over the city
We will wait a long time for it
Then at the rich man's time of day
When the dust the stones the missing tears
form the sun's robe on the huge deserted squares
We shall finally hear the voice.
It will growl at doors for a long while
It will pass over the town tearing up flags and breaking windowpanes.
We will hear it

What silence before it, but still greater the silence
it will not disturb but will hold guilty will brand and denounce
Day of sorrows and joys
The day the day to come when the voice will pass over the city
A ghostly seagull told me she loved me as much as I loved her
That this great terrible silence was my love
That the wind carrying the voice was the great revolt of the world
And that the voice would look kindly on me. #Quote by Robert Desnos
Balkhash City quotes by Jason Epstein
#18. By the mid 1970s, the great downtown bookstores had begun to disappear as their customers migrated from city to suburb where population density was too thin to support major backlist retailers. #Quote by Jason Epstein
Balkhash City quotes by George Carlin
#19. Governments don't want a population capable of critical thinking, they want obedient workers, people just smart enough to run the machines and just dumb enough to passively accept their situation.You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporations. They've long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. #Quote by George Carlin
Balkhash City quotes by Shalom Harlow
#20. In the beginning, New York and I had kind of a love-hate relationship. It seemed so abrasive compared to Europe. But the transformation here in recent years is really something. I don't think I would have seen as much change if I'd lived in any other city in the world. #Quote by Shalom Harlow
Balkhash City quotes by Matthew Desmond
#21. Poor black families were "immersed in a domestic web of a large number of kin and friends whom they [could] count on," wrote the anthropologist Carol Stack in All Our Kin. Those entwined in such a web swapped goods and services on a daily basis. This did little to lift families out of poverty, but it was enough to keep them afloat. But large-scale social transformations - the crack epidemic, the rise of the black middle class, and the prison boom among them - had frayed the family safety net in poor communities. So had state policies like Aid to Families with Dependent Children that sought to limit "kin dependence" by giving mothers who lived alone or with unrelated roommates a larger stipend than those who lived with relatives. #Quote by Matthew Desmond
Balkhash City quotes by Gore Vidal
#22. [ New York ] is a place that worships incompetence particularly if it's combined with energy and paranoid self-confidence. Only in a city like New York could Truman Capote have made it, or John Simon. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Balkhash City quotes by Bubba Watson
#23. Paris is a beautiful city. #Quote by Bubba Watson
Balkhash City quotes by Cassandra Clare
#24. The kitchen was bright, cheerful yellow, the walls decorated with framed chalk and pencil sketches Simon and Rebecca had done in grade school. Rebecca had some drawing talent, you could tell, but Simon's sketches of people all looked like parking meters with tufts of hair. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Balkhash City quotes by George Herbert
#25. The chicken is the country's, but the city eats it. #Quote by George Herbert
Balkhash City quotes by Liz Goldwyn
#26. When someone hears that I've written a book about 1897, I'm usually met with blank stares. And the first thing they say is, 'Was there even an L.A. back then?' A lot of people don't even think there was a city before the movies appeared. That concept of Los Angeles is so strong in the popular imagination that celebrity overrides everything. #Quote by Liz Goldwyn
Balkhash City quotes by Cassandra Clare
#27. That's right. Act like I rejected you. It's not like you tried to kill me or anything. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Balkhash City quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#28. The empire took Rhenydd through deceit, murder, and trickery. I don't speak treason. I speak loyalty- loyalty to the monarchy. To sit by and let the empire rape this kingdom and burn this city is treason and, what's more, it's foolhardy cowardice! #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Balkhash City quotes by M.J. Rose
#29. I placed my new novel, 'The Book of Lost Fragrances', in Paris, knowing it would be a challenge. But the book belonged in the city that is one of the greatest perfume capitals of the world and has been since for more than three centuries. #Quote by M.J. Rose
Balkhash City quotes by Rodney Atkins
#30. I think my songs are singing to the rural heart. It's not whether you're from a big city or the middle of nowhere in a small town. #Quote by Rodney Atkins
Balkhash City quotes by Lyz Lenz
#31. It's a racist narrative trick we always do when we talk about Christianity in America. When we say "Christian" we mean white people. When we talk about great Evangelists in American history, we mean Billy Graham, not Martin Luther King. King is a black activist. But Graham is allowed to be for all. This is the narrative trick being pulled when people tell me to disregard Chicago. It's the erasure of othering. As if centuries of struggling together and against one another hasn't left us all deeply and irrevocably changed.

Chicago's story, like the story of St. Louis, Minneapolis, and Iowa City, is a Midwestern story. The story of the black Evangelical church is the story of the Evangelical church. These stories might not fit the narrative we want to tell about ourselves, but they are as essential to the meaning of who we are as any other story. #Quote by Lyz Lenz
Balkhash City quotes by Brian Selznick
#32. I hope the snow covers everything so all the footsteps are silenced, and the whole city can be at peace. #Quote by Brian Selznick
Balkhash City quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#33. God has a will for your city, country, neighboring countries, and the whole world #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Balkhash City quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#34. Be a pattern to others, and then all will go well; for as a whole city is affected by the licentious passions and vices of great men, so it is likewise reformed by their moderation. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Balkhash City quotes by Jose Saramago
#35. You will become reconciled with legality and with that root of roots, the national community, returning, like the prodigal son, to the paternal home. You are now a lawless city. You will not have a government to tell you what you should and should not do, how you should and should not behave, the streets will be yours, they belong to you, use them as you wish, there will be no authority to stop you in your tracks and offer you sound advice, but equally, and listen carefully to my words, there will be no authority to protect you from thieves, rapists and murderers, that will be your freedom, and may you enjoy it. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Balkhash City quotes by Sarumathi Jayaraman
#36. Our latest research shows that in every city across the United States in which we conducted surveys with restaurant workers, the restaurants that mistreated their workers were more likely to engage in unsafe food-handling practices that sicken customers. It made sense- if a restaurant was not a responsible employer, how could we expect that restaurant to be responsible with our health and safety? #Quote by Sarumathi Jayaraman
Balkhash City quotes by Gore Vidal
#37. You can't really succeed with a novel anyway; they're too big. It's like city planning. You can't plan a perfect city because there's too much going on that you can't take into account. You can, however, write a perfect sentence now and then. I have. #Quote by Gore Vidal
