Eastlyn Country quotes by Larry Osborne
#1. Political leaders and presidents were shot at or assassinated about as often as rap artists are today. An unpopular war cost fifty-eight thousand American lives. Those who bravely served our country returned home to be treated with unwarranted scorn. Promiscuous sex and hallucinatory drugs were celebrated as the path to enlightenment. Race riots set major cities aflame. Police were called pigs. And no one over the age of thirty was to be trusted. Worse, some people wore leisure suits - in public - and they were proud of it. #Quote by Larry Osborne
Eastlyn Country quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#2. You have reminded me of how alien I found the concept of acquaintances splitting the bill when I first arrived in your country. I had been raised to favour mutual generosity over mathematical precision in such matters; given time both work equally well to even a score. #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
Eastlyn Country quotes by Alan Furst

Eastlyn Country quotes by Philippa Gregory
#8. When I was first at court and he was the young husband of a beautiful wife, he was a golden king. They called him the handsomest prince in Christendom, and that was not flattery. Mary Boleyn was in love with him, Anne was in love with him, I was in love with him. There was not one girl at court, nor one girl in the country, who could resist him. Then he turned against his wife, Queen Katherine, a good woman, and Anne taught him how to be cruel. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Eastlyn Country quotes by Sophie Kinsella
#9. And the truth is, the country is very cool. It's absolutely the new town. #Quote by Sophie Kinsella
Eastlyn Country quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#10. Opening lines of The Great Indian Novel narrated as a modern day MahaBharata.

They tell me India is an underdeveloped country. They attend seminars, appear on television, even come to see me, creasing their eight-hundred-rupee suits and clutching their moulded plastic briefcases, to announce in tones of infinite understanding that India has yet to develop. Stuff and nonsense, of course.
"These are the kind of fellows who couldn't tell their kundalini from a decomposing earthworm, and I don't hesitate to tell them so. I tell them they have no knowledge of history and even less of their own heritage. I tell them that if they would only read the Mahabarata and the Ramayana, study the Golden Ages of the Mauryas and the Guptas and even of those Muslim chaps the Mughals, they would realize that India in not an underdeveloped country but a highly developed country in an advanced stage of decay."
They laugh about me pityingly and shift from one foot to the other, unable to conceal their impatience, and I tell them that, in fact, everything in India in over-developed, particularly the social structure, the bureaucracy, the political process, the financial system, the university network and, for that matter, the women. Cantankerous old man, I them thinking, as they make their several exists #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
Eastlyn Country quotes by Ferdia MacAnna
#11. Mother put on her serious face. "I can't stand idly by and watch the country go down the Swannee. The political arena is the only logical and reasonable course left open to any decent Irish patriot. Besides, last night the cumann nominated me to contest the seat left vacant by the death of Dinny Blackstone who has represented the area in the Dail for twenty years. Who am I to argue?"
"Sure he's been dead for at least ten years," Rory said. "It's a wonder that anyone finally noticed. #Quote by Ferdia MacAnna
Eastlyn Country quotes by Al Jourgensen
#12. Listen, man: I am not the industrial godfather, king, whatever. I don't relish that title. I don't like it. I think it's limiting. I do country, I do blues. I don't just go straight. #Quote by Al Jourgensen
Eastlyn Country quotes by Maria Montessori
#13. Today, however, those things which occupy us in the field of education are the interests of humanity at large and of civilization, and before such great forces we can recognize only one country-the entire world. #Quote by Maria Montessori
Eastlyn Country quotes by Ian McDonald
#14. Have you ever looked at a map of our country, Necdet?' Green Headscarf says. 'It's a map of the human mind. We're split by water over two continents, Europe and Anatolia. We are seven per cent Europe, ninety-three per cent Asia. Conscious Thrace, unconscious, pre-conscious, sub-concious Anatolia. And Istanbul - have you ever seen a neuron, Necdet? A brain cell? The marvel is that the synapses don't touch. There is always a gap - there must a gap, otherwise consciousness would not exist. The Bosphorus is that synaptic cleft. Potential can flow across the cleft. It's the cleft that makes consciousness possible. #Quote by Ian McDonald
Eastlyn Country quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#15. If Scotland was independent, we'd be the 14th richest country in the developed world. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Eastlyn Country quotes by Charles M. Blow
#16. Conservatism is rooted in preservation; progressivism advances alteration. These are different love languages. These languages turn on your view of change itself: When you think of America, do you see a country struggling to be maintained or one striving to be made better? #Quote by Charles M. Blow
Eastlyn Country quotes by Cristian Mungiu
#17. You don't have to fight to straighten the image of your country: You have to straighten the country. You must speak about problems openly. #Quote by Cristian Mungiu
Eastlyn Country quotes by Manny Pacquiao
#18. The biggest fight in my life is not in boxing. The biggest fight in my life is how to end poverty in my country. #Quote by Manny Pacquiao
Eastlyn Country quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#19. What this country needs is Discipline! Peace is a great dream, but maybe sometimes it's only a pipe dream! I'm not so sure - now this will shock you, but I want you to listen to one woman who will tell you the unadulterated hard truth instead of a lot of sentimental taffy, and I'm not sure but that we need to be in a real war again, in order to learn Discipline! We don't want all this highbrow intellectuality, all this book-learning. That's good enough in its way, but isn't it, after all, just a nice toy for grownups? No, what we all of us must have, if this great land is going to go on maintaining its high position among the Congress of Nations, is Discipline - Will Power - Character! #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
Eastlyn Country quotes by Steven Tyler
#20. A lot of my books deal with very controversial issues that most people often don't want to talk about, issues that, in my country, are more likely to get put under the carpet than get discussed. And when you talk about moral conundrums, about shades of gray, what you're doing is asking the people who want the world to be black and white to realize instead that maybe it's all right if it isn't. I know you'll learn something picking up my books, but my goal as a writer is not to teach you but to make you ask more questions. #Quote by Steven Tyler
Eastlyn Country quotes by Harriet Harman
#21. In a country where women regard themselves as equal, they are not prepared to see men running the show themselves. #Quote by Harriet Harman
Eastlyn Country quotes by Joyce Banda
#22. I have chosen to fight against corruption in this country, though I have been advised not to because we are drawing closer to this year's Tripartite Elections. I know I am fighting against people who are smarter, wealthier and advanced. #Quote by Joyce Banda
Eastlyn Country quotes by Wilmer Valderrama
#23. When I first came to this country, I didn't know how to speak English. #Quote by Wilmer Valderrama
Eastlyn Country quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#24. Upon my arrival in the United States the religious aspect of the country was the first thing that struck my attention; and the longer I stayed there, the more I perceived the great political consequences resulting from this new state of things. In France, I had almost always seen the spirit of religion and the spirit of freedom marching in opposite directions. But in America I found they were intimately united and that they reigned in common over the same country. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Eastlyn Country quotes by Janeane Garofalo
#25. So, apparently, if you are a pre-sentient mass of cells, this country will protect you and your rights to the n-th degree. If you have made the mistake of becoming an Iraqi citizen, apparently we can just drop bombs on you with impunity. #Quote by Janeane Garofalo
Eastlyn Country quotes by Ronald Reagan
#26. Our economic assistance must be carefully targeted, and must make maximum use of the energy and efforts of the private sector ... Economic freedom is the world's mightiest engine for abundance and social justice ... Developing countries need to be encouraged to experiment with a growing variety of arrangements for profit sharing and expanded capital ownership. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Eastlyn Country quotes by David Ricardo
#27. It has therefore been justly observed that however honestly the coin of a country may conform to its standard, money made of gold and silver is still liable to fluctuations in value, not only to accidental, and temporary, but to permanent and natural variations, in the same manner as other commodities. #Quote by David Ricardo
Eastlyn Country quotes by David Axelrod
#28. I see my job simply as helping disseminate the message of Barack Obama, working with the communications team to make sure that we're true to the ideals and the values and the programs that he wants to advance in this country. And that's the extent of my involvement. #Quote by David Axelrod
Eastlyn Country quotes by Sonny Barger
#29. You can say what you want about all the guns in the country [the USA], all the drugs, all the crime, but we all know 400,000 people a year die of cigarette-related deaths. How many people died of drugs, guns, automobile accidents? You add them all together it doesn't come anywhere near that. Yet they let me smoke and get cancer, and they put me in jail for having drugs. What's going on? The government don't care. It's all about money and job security. #Quote by Sonny Barger
Eastlyn Country quotes by Marguerite Sechehaye
#30. For me, madness was definitely not a condition of illness; I did not believe that I was ill. It was rather a country, opposed to Reality, where reigned an implacable light, blinding, leaving no place for shadow; an immense space without boundary, limitless, flat; a mineral, lunar country, cold as the wastes of the North Pole. In this stretching emptiness, all is unchangeable, immobile, congealed, crystallised. Objects are stage trappings, placed here and there, geometric cubes without meaning.
People turn weirdly about, they make gestures, movements without sense; they are phantoms whirling on an infinite plain, crushed by the pitiless electric light. And I - I am lost in it, isolated, cold, stripped purposeless under the light. #Quote by Marguerite Sechehaye
Eastlyn Country quotes by Rosanne Cash
#31. I think it is wrong that we went against The U.N. and that we have alienated our allies and invaded a country that hasn't threatened us, that it is a pre-emptive strike. #Quote by Rosanne Cash
Eastlyn Country quotes by Pat Conroy
#32. South Carolina is not a state; it is a cult. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Eastlyn Country quotes by Jon Steele
#33. This town, this country, this world, is full to the brim with clever people, and just look at it. Never been in such awful shape. Clever people don't give a damn about anybody but themselves. Too busy being clever. The world doesn't need anymore clever people. It needs people with wisdom. #Quote by Jon Steele
Eastlyn Country quotes by Frank Lautenberg
#34. I had hoped to hear the President tonight tell the Congress and the American people exactly how he plans to tackle some of the important issues facing this country, unfortunately I did not. #Quote by Frank Lautenberg
Eastlyn Country quotes by Michelle Moran
#35. A country is only as strong as its military, and only as moral as the men who serve in its ranks. #Quote by Michelle Moran
Eastlyn Country quotes by Maidie Norman
#36. I am a Republican because the United States is a republic, and the views we hold represent the foundation our country was built on so many years ago. #Quote by Maidie Norman
Eastlyn Country quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#37. I had a mind to make a body of more or less connected legend, ranging from the large and cosmogonic, to the level of romantic fairy-story - the larger founded on the lesser in contact with the earth, the lesser drawing splendour from the vast backcloths - which I could dedicate simply to: to England; to my country ... I would draw some of the great tales in fullness, and leave many only placed in the scheme, and sketched. The cycles should be linked to a majestic whole, and yet leave scope for other minds and hands, wielding paint and music and drama. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Eastlyn Country quotes by Sam Lipsyte
#38. This country was built on the backs of dudes who drank on buses. What we do honors them. #Quote by Sam Lipsyte

Eastlyn Country quotes by Martha Gellhorn
