Locals quotes by Jane Smiley

Locals quotes by Suzanne Whang

Locals quotes by Thomas G. West
#3. From the earliest colonial days [in America], local governments took responsibility for their poor. However, able-bodied men and women generally were not supported by the taxpayers unless they worked. #Quote by Thomas G. West
Locals quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#4. In such times as we are in, whether the threats be global or local or in individual lives, I too pray for the children. Some days it seems that a sea of temptation and transgression inundates them, simply washes over them before they can successfully withstand it, before they should have to face it. And often at least some of the forces at work seem beyond our personal control. Well, some of them may be beyond our control, but I testify with faith in the living God that they are not beyond His. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Locals quotes by Andy Stanley
#5. Praying for revival equates to blaming God for the condition of your local church. #Quote by Andy Stanley
Locals quotes by Colin Salmon
#6. I'm a trumpet player, so I always carry a pocket trumpet in case there's an opportunity to jam with the locals. I was in Guadeloupe last year filming 'Death in Paradise,' and I played all over the island and had the best time. #Quote by Colin Salmon
Locals quotes by Bill Hybels
#7. There is nothing like the local church when the local church is working right. #Quote by Bill Hybels
Locals quotes by Jack Valenti
#8. A huge parasite in the marketplace, feeding and fattening itself off of local television stations and copyright owners of copyrighted material. We do not like it because we think it wrong and unfair. #Quote by Jack Valenti
Locals quotes by Vincent De Paul
#9. When in Rome, you must do as the Romans do and accept the local customs, if they are not immoral. #Quote by Vincent De Paul
Locals quotes by Lou Reed
#10. I'd breed a little liberal army in the wood, just like these redneck lunatics I see at the local bar with their tribe of mutant inbred piglets. #Quote by Lou Reed
Locals quotes by C. Northcote Parkinson
#11. Men enter local politics solely as a result of being unhappily married. #Quote by C. Northcote Parkinson
Locals quotes by Larry Sabato
#12. The national media will talk about (national problems) because it's something that everyone in all 50 states can understand, but the reality is these are minor factors. These are local races ... The issues tend to be less ideological than for Senate races or races for president ... It's about potholes and streetlights. #Quote by Larry Sabato
Locals quotes by A.R. Ammons
#13. To be saved is here, local and mortal #Quote by A.R. Ammons
Locals quotes by Anna Faris
#14. I don't really like to go out to clubs or anything. It's just not my style. I'd much rather go to a dive bar or a local place. #Quote by Anna Faris
Locals quotes by Anne Sweeney
#15. While I was in college, I became a page at ABC. Suddenly I was working for Good Morning America, local news, national news. The page is the lowest rung of the ladder, and it's the also the place where you can ask any question and not feel dumb. #Quote by Anne Sweeney
Locals quotes by Aravind Adiga
#16. An honest politician has no goodies to toss around. This limits his effectiveness profoundly, because political power in India is dispersed throughout a multi-tiered federal structure; a local official who has not been paid off can sometimes stop a billion-dollar project. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Locals quotes by Alexis Denisof
#17. I was dishwasher, then promoted to chef in a local kitchen in a restaurant in Seattle, and I was working on a building site as well, putting in insulation and painting houses, and then doing some classes at a community college nearby. #Quote by Alexis Denisof
Locals quotes by Queen Rania Of Jordan
#18. Social media are a catalyst for the advancement of everyone's rights. It's where we're reminded that we're all human and all equal. It's where people can find and fight for a cause, global or local, popular or specialized, even when there are hundreds of miles between them. #Quote by Queen Rania Of Jordan
Locals quotes by Tony Parsons
#19. There are a handful of barbecue seafood shacks on the beach at Hat Nai Yang, which is a fabulous place to have dinner. It's very much run for locals and they serve the catch of the day, which might be lobster, white snapper or squid. It's ridiculously reasonable, too. #Quote by Tony Parsons
Locals quotes by Douglas Adams
#20. An island, on the other hand, is small. There are fewer species, and the competition for survival has never reached anything like the pitch that it does on the mainland. Species are only as tough as they need to be, life is much quieter and more settled [..] So you can imagine what happens when a mainland species gets introduced to an island. It would be like introducing Al Capone, Genghis Khan and Rupert Murdoch into the Isle of Wight - the locals wouldn't stand a chance. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Locals quotes by Richard Dawkins
#21. Luke [the gospel writer] screws up his dating by tactlessly mentioning events that historians are capable of independently checking. There was indeed a census under Governor Quirinius - a local census, not one decreed by Caesar Augustus for the Empire as a whole - but it happened too late in 6 AD, long after Herod's death. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Locals quotes by Frederick Lenz
#22. Sri Krishna is said to be an avatar, which is a human way of trying to define very big. That is to say that Sri Krishna is not from the local area network, but he has come from a world that is different because his mind is different. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Locals quotes by Howard Zinn
#23. History is instructive. And what it suggests to people is that even if they do little things, if they walk on the picket line, if they join a vigil, if they write a letter to their local newspaper. Anything they do, however small, becomes part of a much, much larger sort of flow of energy. And when enough people do enough things, however small they are, then change takes place. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Locals quotes by Joseph Story
#24. The true test is, whether the object be of a local character, and local use; or, whether it be of general benefit to the states. If it be purely local, congress cannot constitutionally appropriate money for the object. But, if the benefit be general, it matters not, whether in point of locality it be in one state, or several; whether it be of large, or of small extent. #Quote by Joseph Story
Locals quotes by Ray Bradbury
#25. We're all watching each other, so there's no chance for censorship. The main problem is the idiot TV. If you watch local news, your head will turn to mush. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Locals quotes by Eric Bristow
#26. I've got a nice little crafty deal with the people in Barbados; 10 days out there teaching the locals how to play darts for an hour a day. Get paid for that as well. #Quote by Eric Bristow
Locals quotes by Frederick Lenz
#27. Some people are drawn to meditation without knowing why. Their inner being realizes that they've totally fouled up their life so far, and now it's just going to drag them to the local meditation hall. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Locals quotes by Gordon Smith
#28. If policymakers are serious about avoiding a society of TV 'haves and have-nots,' they should refrain from policies that favor pay-TV operators over the providers of our nation's only free and local communications system: over-the-air broadcasting. #Quote by Gordon Smith
Locals quotes by Frank Iero
#29. I also remember the second band I was in ever. We were called Hybrid. We got a show at this local street fair, and we were playing on the back of a flatbed truck. There was an ad in the paper, and it said that 'Hybird' is playing. I was so mad. #Quote by Frank Iero
Locals quotes by Mike Seabrook
#30. Golf is the only game that pits the player against an opponent, the weather, the minutest details of a large chunk of local topography and his own nervous system, all at the same time. #Quote by Mike Seabrook
Locals quotes by Robert Galbraith
#31. He was thinking about men like his Uncle Ted, a Cornishman to his bones, who lived and would die in St. Mawes, part of the fabric of the place, remembered as long as there were locals, beaming out of fading photographs of the Life Boat on pub walls. When Ted died - and Strike hoped it would be twenty, thirty years hence - they would mourn him as the unknown Barrovian Grammar boy was being mourned: with drink, with tears, but in celebration that he had been given to them. What had dark, hulking Brockbank, child rapist, and fox-haired Laing, wife-torturer, left behind in the towns of their birth? Shudders of relief that they had gone, fear that they had returned, a trail of broken people and bad memories. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Locals quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#32. If new species arise very rapidly in small, peripherally isolated local populations, then the great expectation of insensibly graded fossil sequences is a chimera. A new species does not evolve in the area of its ancestors; it does not arise from the slow transformation of all its forbears.
co-author with Niles Eldridge #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Locals quotes by Theresa May
#33. We are mandating forces to hold regular neighbourhood beat meetings. These meetings will give local people the chance to scrutinise the work of their local police. #Quote by Theresa May
Locals quotes by David Gregory
#34. Let's just be clear here. The vice president of the United States accidentally shoots a man, and he feels that it's appropriate for a ranch owner who witnessed this to tell the local Corpus Christi newspaper and not the White House press corps at large, or notify the public in a national way. #Quote by David Gregory
Locals quotes by Donna J. Haraway
#35. To be in love is to be worldly, to be in connection with significant otherness and signifying ohers, on many scales, in layers of locals and globals, in ramifying webs. #Quote by Donna J. Haraway
Locals quotes by David Mitchell
#36. A no-name place, as far as I could see, but it had a miserable cafe-cum-garage-cum-funeral parlor shared by a gang of silent locals and many flies who wheeled through the air like drugged angels of death. #Quote by David Mitchell
Locals quotes by Alvar Aalto
#37. Architecture is not merely national but clearly has local ties in that it is rooted in the earth. #Quote by Alvar Aalto
Locals quotes by Lynn Westmoreland
#38. I think these ladies, that group of 130 women, are going to make a difference in what goes on down there, because they're going to hold the locals' feet to the fire. #Quote by Lynn Westmoreland
Locals quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#39. Whether the authorities be invaders or merely local tyrants, the effect of such [gun control] laws is to place the individual at the mercy of the state, unable to resist. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Locals quotes by Clifford Geertz
#40. To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others, as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken, a case among cases, a world among worlds, that the largeness of mind, without which objectivity is self-congratulation and tolerance a sham, comes. #Quote by Clifford Geertz
Locals quotes by Ronald Reagan
#41. Our leaders must remember that education doesn't begin with some isolated bureaucrat in Washington. It doesn't even begin with state or local officials. Education begins in the home, where it is a parental right and responsibility. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Locals quotes by Wendell Berry
#42. We need to confront honestly the issue of scale ... You may need a large corporation to run an airline or to manufacture cars, but you don't need a large corporation to raise a chicken or a hog. You don't need a large corporation to process local food or local timber and market it locally. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Locals quotes by Chali 2na
#43. I feel like I've been blessed to be able to travel with this music, so I always try to get down with the locals. #Quote by Chali 2na
Locals quotes by Robet Jung
#44. Japan is a startling clash of the deeply traditional and the spiritual. The intensely current and the superficial. It's ancient, but futuristic. Conservative, yet hedonistic. Sleek skyscrapers graze the clouds like trees seeking sun in a man-made rainforest. Their concrete foundations often fertilized by the bodies of locals run afoul of the yakuza. It's a homogenous island nation with a quaint surface and a Twin Peaks underbelly. The polite, insular, and eerily innocuous, living symbiotically with the perverse, extroverted, and bizarre. Fashion-forward and fashion-retarded. You could make similar generalizations about most cultures of course, but Japan's beautiful contrasts were better than most."--Parker Choi #Quote by Robet Jung
Locals quotes by Dennis Ross
#45. You don't have any communication between the Israelis and the Iranians. You have all sorts of local triggers for conflict. Having countries act on a hair trigger - where they can't afford to be second to strike - the potential for a miscalculation or a nuclear war through inadvertence is simply too high. #Quote by Dennis Ross
Locals quotes by Dinesh D'Souza
#46. Barack Obama II is born in the Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu. His birth is recorded in two local newspapers. #Quote by Dinesh D'Souza
Locals quotes by Malcolm Forbes
#47. The richest person in the world - in fact, all the riches in the world - couldn't provide you with anything like the endless, incredible loot available in your local library. You can measure the awareness, the breadth and the wisdom of a civilization, a nation, a people by the priority given to preserving these repositories of all that we are, all that we were, or will be. Our libraries are being eroded alarmingly by inflation. It behooves us - all of us - to stop the rot by the application of that prime preserver - money. #Quote by Malcolm Forbes
Locals quotes by Amy Fecteau
#48. Quin stopped halfway across the room, his head cocked to the side. He stared at Mattheus like an explorer who couldn't figure out if he'd discovered a fascinating new subculture or a bunch of locals playing What Can We Get the Foreigner (sic) Eat? #Quote by Amy Fecteau
Locals quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#49. A local church will only be as great as its conception of God. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Locals quotes by Mark Pryor
#50. Life does not stand still for families and local communities when our brave men and women are deployed, but we can make their time apart more bearable by recognizing their sacrifice and fulfilling our commitments to them. #Quote by Mark Pryor
Locals quotes by John Perry Barlow
#51. In Cyberspace, the First Amendment is a local ordinance. #Quote by John Perry Barlow
Locals quotes by George H. Miley
#52. I spent twenty years of my life trying to recruit people out of local churches and into missions structures so that they could be involved in fulfilling God's global mission. Now I have another idea. Let's take God's global mission and put it right in the middle of the local church! #Quote by George H. Miley
Locals quotes by Adrienne Wilder
#53. Can I ask you one thing before you go?" the clerk said. Her short friend watched me over the edge of her glasses.
"Sure."
"Are you and Morgan going to the movies again anytime soon?"
I swear every person in that room leaned closer.
"Uh…"
"Mr. Newman is gonna be showing the cows The Sound of Music next Friday," Marge said. Then I'll be damned if she didn't grin.
What the hell did I say? Because they sure were waiting for me to say something. "We'll see."
Marge patted me on the arm. "Well, you just let us know."
I faced some scary people in my life, had guns shoved in my face, seen the results of a disgruntled colleague's handiwork, and never ran. Apparently a room full of Durstrand locals could do what bullets had failed at.
I set the box of bottles on the floor on the passenger side of the truck and cranked it up. Everyone in the post office watched me out the window. Even the two mail clerks had squeezed up front. About half of them waved.
With my face on fire, I fled the parking lot. #Quote by Adrienne Wilder
Locals quotes by Alex Steffen
#54. Our cities need to change, fast. Tactical Urbanism is a guided tour of solutions created when local people decide they can't wait for politics to catch up before they improve their neighborhoods. This weathervane book deserves a place on any urbanist's bookshelf. #Quote by Alex Steffen
Locals quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#55. I think I'm one of the most patriotic people that I've ever encountered in America. I consider myself a bedrock patriot. I participate very actively in local politics, because my voice might be worthwhile. I participate in a meaningful way - not by donations; I work at it. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Locals quotes by Steve Ballmer
#56. It actually turns out to be much harder to really understand government across state local and federal. #Quote by Steve Ballmer
Locals quotes by Dan Eaton
#57. A settlement existed here as early as the sixth century BC. The Romans built their fortress later. Known today as "Babylon" by the locals, it formed the foundation for the Coptic quarter and gave it its distinctive character. After the spread of Christianity in Egypt, the area of about one square mile became a Christian stronghold, home to some twenty churches and the world's oldest surviving Christian community. Now, many centuries later, it sat at the heart of a Muslim nation. Only five of the original churches remained, but the enclave was a time warp that also preserved the country's earliest mosque and its oldest synagogue. #Quote by Dan Eaton
Locals quotes by Patrick Ness
#58. I was a hugely unchaperoned reader, and I would wander into my local public library and there sat the world, waiting for me to look at it, to find out about it, to discover who I might be inside it.
[Patrick Ness slams library cuts (The Guardian, 23 June 2011)] #Quote by Patrick Ness
Locals quotes by Hank Bracker
#59. Partying on the Malecon

One of the most exciting areas in Havana is the Malecon, a protective sea wall which buffers the northern edge of the Vedado neighborhood of Havana, from the Straits of Florida. Busiest during weekends, it is the most popular place to stroll and is an unrivaled meeting spot for guys and dolls. For this activity the primary party area is the corner of the Malecon and La Rampa, and for a country as poor as Cuba the Malecon offers a reasonable form of entertainment and people watching. Although there are nightclubs in Havana, spending an evening along the Malecon, is probably the best way to enjoy the pulse of Havana and offers visitors a chance to interact with friendly locals. #Quote by Hank Bracker
Locals quotes by Seth Shostak
#60. While about one-third of Americans believe in ghosts, you won't find many exhibits on these spooky beings down at the local science museum. Why? Well, one explanation that you might consider, ghosts are just figments of our highly fertile imaginations! #Quote by Seth Shostak
Locals quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#61. Natural selection is a theory of local adaptation to changing environments. It proposes no perfecting principles, no guarantee of general improvement #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Locals quotes by Murray Rothbard
#62. Rights might be universal but their enforcement must be local. #Quote by Murray Rothbard
Locals quotes by Naomi Weisstein
#63. It's as if women are in a totally rigged race. A lot of men are driving souped-up, low-slung racing cars and we're running as fast as we can in tennis shoes we managed to salvage from a local garage sale. #Quote by Naomi Weisstein
Locals quotes by Fritz Sauckel
#64. I am very proud of the fact that many workers in my Gau, numerous former Communists and Social Democrats were won over by us and became local group leaders and Party functionaries. #Quote by Fritz Sauckel
Locals quotes by Zadie Smith
#65. I'm always interested in the way people speak and move in their environment, in a very particular environment. I'm never interested in writing a kind of neutral, universal novel that could be set anywhere. To me, the any novel is a local thing always. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Locals quotes by Thomas C. Foster
#66. The process of dehuminazing the locals was under way, and it had very little to do with veracity. The Puritan narratives would continue that process and bring the devil into the mix. At least John Smith didn't think Satan was involved. #Quote by Thomas C. Foster
Locals quotes by Betty White
#67. Long ago, I did a five-and-a-half-hour-a-day, six-day-a-week talk show for four years, early on, in Los Angeles - local show. And when you are on that many hours with no script, you know, you get very comfortable, maybe overly comfortable with that small audience. #Quote by Betty White
Locals quotes by Ralph Vaughan Williams
#68. I think there is no work of art which represents the spirit of a nation more surely than "Die Meister Singer" of Richard Wagner. Here is no plaything with local colour, but the raising to its highest power all that is best in the national consciousness of his country. #Quote by Ralph Vaughan Williams
Locals quotes by Jeremiah Moss
#69. Among locals, Avenues A, B, C, and D stood for Adventurous, Brave, Crazy, and Dead. (In 2016, writer George Pendle told the Times they now stand for "Affluent, Bourgeois, Comfortable, and Decent. #Quote by Jeremiah Moss
Locals quotes by Bartolome De Las Casas
#70. The Christians seized all the maize the locals of Nicaragua had grown for themselves and their own families and, as a consequence, some twenty or thirty thousand natives died of hunger, some mothers even killing their own children and eating them. #Quote by Bartolome De Las Casas
Locals quotes by David Levithan
#71. Because sometimes you just have to dance like a madman in the Self-Help section of your local bookstore. #Quote by David Levithan
Locals quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#72. Natural selection is just three factors - over-production, variation, and inheritance combined to produce adaptation to changing local environments. It's not a principle or progress; it's just a principle of local adaptation. You don't make better creatures in any cosmic sense; you make creatures that are better suited to the changing climates of their local habitats. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Locals quotes by Robert Kennedy
#73. We in Government have begun to recognize the critical work which must be done at all levels-local, State and Federal-in ending the pollution of our waters. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Locals quotes by Julian Aleksandrowicz
#74. Already published reports, as well as our own observations indicate that smallpox vaccination sometimes produces manifestations of leukemia. In children and adults observed in the clinics of Cracow, smallpox vaccination has been followed by violent local and general reactions and by leukemia. #Quote by Julian Aleksandrowicz
Locals quotes by Mark Gunk
#75. Locals? I hit print on the shock file, and my face was the paper that came out of the printer! Locals! I had no idea this deep into the green inferno there'd be people living! Or dying! #Quote by Mark Gunk
Locals quotes by Damon Galgut
#76. The only way you can be universal is to be sure you are very specifically local. #Quote by Damon Galgut
Locals quotes by Mitch Cullin
#77. ... the two chatting surreptitiously as a procession of priests, musicians, and locals dressed like demons paraded down the street: the men hoisting erect wooden phalluses, the women embracing smaller carved penises swathed in red paper, the spectators touching the tips of passing phalluses to ensure good health for their children.
"How remarkable," commented Holmes.
"I thought you might find this of interest," said Mr Umezaki.
Holmes grinned slyly. "My friend, I suspect this is much more to your liking than mine."
"You're probably right," agreed Mr Umezaki, smiling while his fingertips reached out for an oncoming phallus. #Quote by Mitch Cullin
Locals quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#78. I'm very committed to my family and my town. My biggest local commitment are my children, my husband, my home and my grandchildren. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
Locals quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#79. Ourselves are cosmic and capacious beyond conjecture, and to experience some notion of the planetary perspective is the richest income from travelling. It takes all to inform and educate all. Sallies forth from our cramped firesides into other homes, other hearts, are wonderfully wholesome and enlarging. Travel opens prospects on all sides, widens our horizon, liberates the mind from geographical and conventional limitations, from local prejudices and national, showing the globe in its differing climates, zones, and latitudes of intelligence. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Locals quotes by James Berardinelli
#80. It's mind-boggling to consider that movies this bad are actually committed to film. The poor quality of The Pest in almost every category humor, intelligence, creativity, and just plain entertainment value ranks it somewhere between a bad infomercial and a local cable newscast. Rarely do I consider the act of seeing a movie to be a chore, but this kind of experience is the exception - Directed By Paul Miller. #Quote by James Berardinelli
Locals quotes by Peter Menzel
#81. With the Internet, you can get lots of info in advance, but a local person who knows how to work the system is invaluable. #Quote by Peter Menzel
Locals quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#82. When you assemble from your several counties in the Legislature, were every member to be guided only by the apparent interest of his county, government would be impracticable. There must be a perpetual accomodation and sacrifice of local advantage to general expediency. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Locals quotes by Bill Hybels
#83. The local church is the hope of the world, and its future rests primarily in the hands of its leaders. #Quote by Bill Hybels
Locals quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#84. The problem with real estate is that it's local. You have to understand the local market. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Locals quotes by Newt Gingrich
#85. If you've been here 15 years and you've got three kids and grandkids and you've been paying taxes and obeying the law, you belong to a local church, I don't think we're going to separate you from your family, uproot you forcefully and kick you out. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Locals quotes by Yoko Ono
#86. I travel a lot, so when I arrive in a city, I like to go to good local bookshops and make a selection based on how I'm feeling and what I'm thinking. The book I pick usually seems to have a definite karmic connection! #Quote by Yoko Ono
Locals quotes by Dennis R. Blanchard
#87. Thousands of grasshoppers were jumping everywhere; I felt like I was walking through popping popcorn. These critters made me conscious of my surroundings, since many snakes eat grasshoppers. When it comes to rattlesnakes and copperheads, the locals there have a saying that the "Third person gets bit." The theory is: the first person gets the snake's attention, the second person gets the snake aggravated, and the third person gets bit. There were only two of us, but I didn't feel like testing the theory. #Quote by Dennis R. Blanchard
Locals quotes by Jim DeMint
#88. So, the point I'm making is, we are not going to cut spending in Washington if we think it's the job of every congressman and senator is to pave local parking lots and build local sewer plants. These parochial interests are getting in the way of the national interests. #Quote by Jim DeMint
Locals quotes by Jimmy Carter
#89. When I speak at my local church, which I try to do 35 to 40 times a year, I try in every lesson to take the Old Testament text or New Testament text and apply them to what is happening to me or how that applies to the audience that I'm teaching in a modern, fast-changing, technological world. I use headlines, interfaith and that sort of thing. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Locals quotes by Tennessee Williams
#90. Perhaps the most vivid recollection of my youth is that of the local wheelmen, led by my father, stopping at our home to eat pone, sip mint juleps, and flog the field hands. This more than anything cultivated my life-long aversion to bicycles. #Quote by Tennessee Williams
Locals quotes by Markus Zusak
#91. He's most likely robbing the bank as a paycheck on the world for winning the ugliness prize at his local fete three years running. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Locals quotes by Niall Ferguson
#92. All empires have depended on local legitimacy and local collaboration; they are not based primarily on coercion. An imperial rule that relies wholly on coercion can't endure. It's too expensive. #Quote by Niall Ferguson
Locals quotes by Nick Clegg
#93. I think it is a simple statement of principle that in a democracy you should make your MPs work harder for your vote and try and get at least majority support in their local area, and that in a nutshell is what AV does. #Quote by Nick Clegg
Locals quotes by Joan Didion
#94. It is hard for people who have not lived in Los Angeles to realize how radically the Santa Ana figures in the local imagination. The city burning is Los Angeles's deepest image of itself; Nathanael West perceived that, in The Day of the Locust; and at the time of the 1965 Watts riots what struck the imagination most indelibly were the fires. For days one could drive the Harbor Freeway and see the city on fire, just as we had always known it would be in the end. Los Angeles weather is the weather of catastrophe, of apocalypse, and, just as the reliably long and bitter winters of New England determine the way life is lived there, so the violence and the unpredictability of the Santa Ana affect the entire quality of life in Los Angeles, accentuate its impermanence, its unreliability. The wind shows us how close to the edge we are. #Quote by Joan Didion
Locals quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#95. Choosing leaf or flesh, factory farm or family farm, does not in itself change the world, but teaching ourselves, our children, our local communities, and our nation to choose conscience over ease can. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Locals quotes by Zach Braff
#96. Whenever I'm feeling a bit down, I always visit the local children's hospital. Knowing that those cancer-kids wont be able to live long enough to surpass me in fame just warms my heart, you know? #Quote by Zach Braff
Locals quotes by Peter Cundall
#97. I have an optimism about what people are willing to do. The greatest force in the world today, believe it or not, are these countless groups of people in every country almost ... that are doing things to protect their local environment and to try and protect the earth. #Quote by Peter Cundall
Locals quotes by Valentina Zelyaeva
#98. You need to eat what's local. So that's what I'm trying to do - just be as close to nature as possible. #Quote by Valentina Zelyaeva
Locals quotes by Aristotle.
#99. What has soul in it differs from what has not, in that the former displays life. Now this word has more than one sense, and provided any one alone of these is found in a thing we say that thing is living. Living, that is, may mean thinking or perception or local movement and rest, or movement in the sense of nutrition, decay and growth. Hence we think of plants also as living, for they are observed to possess in themselves an originative power through which they increase or decrease in all spatial directions; #Quote by Aristotle.
Locals quotes by J. D. Souther
#100. The power of network television is amazing. I've been performing for years but have been seen on only a few episodes of this show, and people spot me in public now all the time. They say, 'Hey, aren't you on 'Nashville'?' Most locals seem to really appreciate how authentic the show is. #Quote by J. D. Souther
Locals quotes by Ruta Sepetys
#101. New Orleans is unlike any city in America. Its cultural diversity is woven into the food, the music, the architecture - even the local superstitions. It's a sensory experience on all levels and there's a story lurking around every corner. #Quote by Ruta Sepetys
Locals quotes by Tim Vine
#102. So I went down the local supermarket, I said "I want to make a complaint, this vinegar's got lumps in it", he said "Those are pickled onions". #Quote by Tim Vine
Locals quotes by Jim DeMint
#103. I don't need to be asking for money for local museums and other projects just to make me look good back home. #Quote by Jim DeMint
Locals quotes by George Clooney
#104. I enjoy going on motorcycle trips and stopping in small towns and enjoying drinks with the locals. #Quote by George Clooney
Locals quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#105. Growing up north of San Francisco, I immersed myself in the local landscape and in books about Native Americans, cowboys, and pioneers that seemed to ground me in it, but to pursue culture in those days meant being spun around until dizzy and then pushed east. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Locals quotes by Herbert Croly
#106. The Constitution was the expression not only of a political faith, but also of political fears. It was wrought both as the organ of the national interest and as the bulwark of certain individual and local rights. #Quote by Herbert Croly
Locals quotes by Salman Rushdie
#107. Rohinton Mistry's celebrated novel 'Such a Long Journey' was pulled off the syllabus of Mumbai University because local extremists objected to its content. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Locals quotes by Newt Gingrich
#108. It is tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children in child laws which are truly stupid ... These schools should get rid of unionized janitors, have one master janitor, pay local students to take care of the school. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Locals quotes by Deepak Chopra
#109. DNA is a quantum computer that localizes a non local omnipresent consciousness or spirit into space time energy information and matter. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Locals quotes by Al Gore
#110. Local and state governments have outrun the federal government. The EPA has served notice that it will enact a rule requiring CO2 reductions by major emitters in the absence of major legislation. But it's a blunt instrument that is a little more difficult to use than a legislative remedy. #Quote by Al Gore
Locals quotes by David Baldacci
#111. Answers to. Maybe the locals already had answers. He would take #Quote by David Baldacci
Locals quotes by China Mieville
#112. Oh, bullshit. This isn't one of those stories, Avice. One moment of cack-handedness, Captain Cook offends the bloody locals, one slip of the tongue or misuse of sacred cutlery, and bang, he's on the grill. Do you ever think about how self-aggrandising that stuff is? Oh, all those stories pretending to be mea culpas about cultural insensitivity, oops, we said the wrong thing, but they're really all about how ridiculous natives overreact. Avice, we must have made thousands of fuckups like that over the years. Think about it. Just like our visitors did when they first met our lot, on Terre. And for the most part we didn't lose our shit, did we? #Quote by China Mieville
Locals quotes by Charles Baxter
#113. In February, the overcast sky isn't gloomy so much as neutral and vague. It's a significant factor in the common experience of depression among the locals. The snow crunches under your boots and clings to your trousers, to the cuffs, and once you're inside, the snow clings to you psyche, and eventually you have to go to the doctor. The past soaks into you in this weather because the present is missing almost entirely. #Quote by Charles Baxter
Locals quotes by Otto Schily
#114. The terrorists who committed the 2003 Istanbul attacks were locals, that is, Turks. And when filmmaker Theo van Gogh was murdered in the Netherlands last year, the murderer and his supporters were also part of the Muslim community. #Quote by Otto Schily
Locals quotes by Derrick Jensen
#115. To be clear, civilization is not the same as society. Civilization is a specific, hierarchical organization based on 'power over.' Dismantling civilization, taking down that power structure, does not mean the end of all social order. It should ultimately mean more justice, more local control, more democracy, and more human rights, not less. #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Locals quotes by Luc Sante
#116. My ideal city is more like the city (New York and Paris come to mind, but it sort of applies to all) that existed up to and including the 1930s, when different classes lived all together in the same neighborhoods, and most businesses of any sort were mom-and-pop, and people and things had a local identity. #Quote by Luc Sante
Locals quotes by Odeya Rush
#117. I've always been into theater and movies. When I was in school, I did a monologue for my talent show. I would go to the local theater. I was always in dance. I was always performing. That was always my thing. #Quote by Odeya Rush
Locals quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#118. As soon as I moved to Princeton in 1978, I became fascinated by local history, much of it Revolutionary War-era; and I became fascinated by the presidency of Woodrow Wilson at Princeton University. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Locals quotes by Kate Griffin
#119. Even if you've no idea where you're going, you have to look like you do. It's what keeps the locals different from the strangers. #Quote by Kate Griffin
Locals quotes by Andy Sawford
#120. Many in local government will ask why should only a few areas have the freedoms and benefits of Enterprise Zone status while the majority lose out? #Quote by Andy Sawford
Locals quotes by Helen Fisher
#121. We still have community, but we don't seem to have local community. Even in a small town where you know your neighbors and your mother's down the street, they're not in arm's length. #Quote by Helen Fisher
Locals quotes by Romain Grosjean
#122. I have a great love for cuisine, so I'm always interested in local food, and there are so many interesting dishes, spices and ingredients in India. #Quote by Romain Grosjean
Locals quotes by Bruce Springsteen
#123. I was looking for some way to put my music to some service on a nightly basis. You go into a town, you play a little music, you leave something behind. That idea connected us to the local community. It was a very simple idea, but it really resonated with me. #Quote by Bruce Springsteen
Locals quotes by George Santayana
#124. In any close society it is more urgent to restrain others than to be free oneself. Hence the tendency for the central authority to absorb and supersede such as are local or delegated. #Quote by George Santayana
Locals quotes by Roy Blount, Jr.
#125. The local groceries are all out of broccoli, loccoli. #Quote by Roy Blount, Jr.
Locals quotes by Clayton Christensen
#126. There are companies trying to build business within Saudi Arabia, and what they find is that if they try to bring on locals and teach them how to become senior executives, they just don't show up to work. They are not predictable as to when they'll come in and how much of their hearts are into that opportunity. #Quote by Clayton Christensen
Locals quotes by Ben Parr
#127. Start with local press first. Start with people you know. Don't pitch every journalist. #Quote by Ben Parr
Locals quotes by Robert Crumb
#128. I was a child of American popular culture. All I did as a kid was what I could get at the local supermarket or the dime store. Nothing else was seen. Plus what was on television, or the movie theatre. That was it. #Quote by Robert Crumb
Locals quotes by Mo Udall
#129. I've been through legislation creating a dozen national parks, and there's always the same pattern. When you first propose a park, and you visit the area and present the case to the local people, they threaten to hang you. You go back in five years and they think it's the greatest thing that ever happened. #Quote by Mo Udall
Locals quotes by Bill Bryson
#130. From that original colony sprang seven names that still feature on the landscape: Roanoke (which has the distinction of being the first Indian word borrowed by English settlers), Cape Fear, Cape Hatteras, the Chowan and Neuse Rivers, Chesapeake, and Virginia. (Previously, Virginia had been called Windgancon, meaning "what gay clothes you wear" - apparently what the locals had replied when an early reconnoitering party had asked the place's name.) #Quote by Bill Bryson
Locals quotes by Thomas Paine
#131. Human language is local and changeable, and is therefore incapable of being used as the means of unchangeable and universal information. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Locals quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#132. Thus it went as she made her way around the biomes of Ring B. Always she found that her mother the great engineer had made some crucial intervention, finding solutions to problems that had stymied the locals. Devi had the knack of sidestepping dilemmas, Badim said when Freya mentioned this, by moving back several logical steps, and coming at the situation from some new way not yet noticed. "It's sometimes called avoiding acquiescence," Badim said. "Acquiescence means accepting the framing of a problem, and working on it from within the terms of the frame. It's a kind of mental economy, but also a kind of sloth. And Devi does not have that kind of sloth, as you know. She is always interrogating the framing of the problem. Acquiescence is definitely not her mode. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Locals quotes by Jordan L. Hawk
#133. I think I will remain here and work on my manuscript," Christine decided. "Going about talking to the locals sounds dreadfully boring. But if you find you need anyone shot, send word and I'll come at once. #Quote by Jordan L. Hawk
Locals quotes by Hillary Clinton
#134. When you are engaged in both trying to kill and capture the enemy and get support from the local population, you have to be always asking yourself, "Is what I'm doing keeping that balance?" #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Locals quotes by Bill Maher
#135. New Rule: Since our new national position on science is, "Screw it, we prefer witchcraft," let's not just retire the Space Shuttle Atlantis. Let's drive it to one of the five stupidest States and have the locals beat it with sticks. Putting it in a museum is too dangerous. Someone could steal it, fly it into space and notice we revolve around the sun. #Quote by Bill Maher
Locals quotes by Richelle Mead
#136. Where are the dogs?" I asked.
"At training," he said. "I have a friend who's an expert dog trainer, and he's giving them some stealth lessons. He used to work for a local K-9 unit."
I didn't think it was in the Chihuahua genetic code to ever be stealthy. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Locals quotes by M.L. Stedman
#137. The community of Partageuse had drifted together like so much dust in a breeze, settling in this spot where two oceans met, because there was fresh water and a natural harbor and good soil. Its port was no rival to Albany, but convenient for locals shipping timber or sandalwood or beef. Little businesses had sprung up and clung on like lichen on a rock face, and the town had accumulated a school, a variety of churches with different hymns and architectures, a good few brick and stone houses and a lot more built of weatherboard and tin. It gradually produced various shops, a town hall, even a Dalgety's stock and station agency. And pubs. Many pubs. #Quote by M.L. Stedman
Locals quotes by Zephyr Teachout
#138. As a school board member, I might have particular views about the ways we might increase the economics curriculum in a local high school, but I'm not sure I should mandate that for the entire country. #Quote by Zephyr Teachout
Locals quotes by E. O. Wilson
#139. Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it ... Eliminate one species, and another increases to take its place. Eliminate a great many species, and the local ecosystem starts to decay. #Quote by E. O. Wilson
Locals quotes by Richard Pipes
#140. If we turn to the differences separating Communist, Fascist, and National Socialist regimes, we find that they can be accounted for by contrasting social, economic, and cultural condition in which the three had to operate. In other words, they resulted from tactical adaptation of the same philosophy of government to local circumstances, not from different philosophies. #Quote by Richard Pipes
Locals quotes by Charles Lamb
#141. I have passed all my days in London, until I have formed as many and intense local attachments as any of you mountaineers can have done with dead nature. #Quote by Charles Lamb
Locals quotes by Robert  Black
#142. When you travel overseas, the locals see you as a foreigner, and when you return, you see the locals as foreigners. #Quote by Robert Black
Locals quotes by Rand Paul
#143. I support local solutions to illegal immigration as protected by the 10th amendment. I support making English the official language of all documents and contracts.. #Quote by Rand Paul
Locals quotes by Terry Pratchett
#144. Journalism makes you think fast. You have to speak to people in all walks of life. Especially local journalism. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Locals quotes by John Flanagan
#145. S'mimasen," Alyss said repeatedly as they brushed against passerby.
"What does that mean?" Will asked as they reached a stretch of street bare of any other pedestrians. He was impressed by Alyss's grasp of the local language.
"It means 'pardon me,'" Alyss replied, but then a shadow of doubt crossed her face. "At least, I hope it does. Maybe I'm saying 'you have the manners of a fat, rancid sow. #Quote by John Flanagan
Locals quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#146. Local assemblies of the people constitute the strength of free nations. Municipal institutions are to liberty what primary schools are to science: they bring it within the people's reach, and teach them how to use and enjoy it. A nation may establish a system of free government, but without the spirit of municipal institutions it cannot have the spirit of liberty. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Locals quotes by J.J. Gainer
#147. Did you know that Ethiopia might have fifteen-hundred rock churches? Most are carved ou of rock outcropping. Some date back to the 13th century. Even the locals have forgotten where they are all located. Some are in caves, in the ground, and on top of tabletop mountains like Debre Damo. If the falashas wanted to hide the Ark, they would have lots of choices that were more secure than the middle of Axum. #Quote by J.J. Gainer
Locals quotes by Jamie Farrell
#148. Two years ago, she had inherited The Milked Duck Ice Cream Shoppe in downtown Bliss from Great Aunt Agnes. After getting
her degree in sociology and then bouncing around the country, waffling from job to job and one relative's couch to another, she'd finally found where she fit: creating and serving happiness to the locals and the destination wedding tourists in Bliss. #Quote by Jamie Farrell
Locals quotes by George Noory
#149. I've been a radio and television news person since I was 19 years old. I'm 57 years old now. But the advantage is that I have studied, investigated, and reported over those years on nearly every major story from wars and recessions to grass roots local issues. #Quote by George Noory
Locals quotes by John Culberson
#150. This is not the first time that Mexican authorities have handed over an Arab from a country with known Al Qaeda connections to a local sheriff across the border. FBI picks them up and disappears. #Quote by John Culberson
Locals quotes by Jamie Oliver
#151. Pick a destination, go there, be open-minded and talk to the locals. Eat the things they eat and go where they go. You don't need to be fluent, just as long as you've got a smile on your face- people will be jumping over themselves to show you the stuff they're proud of. #Quote by Jamie Oliver
Locals quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#152. Now the evening's at its noon, its meridian. The outgoing tide has simmered down, and there's a lull-like the calm in the eye of a hurricane - before the reverse tide starts to set in.

The last acts of the three-act plays are now on, and the after-theater eating places are beginning to fill up with early comers; Danny's and Lindy's - yes, and Horn & Hardart too. Everybody has got where they wanted to go - and that was out somewhere. Now everybody will want to get back where they came from - and that's home somewhere. Or as the coffee-grinder radio, always on the beam, put it at about this point: 'New York, New York, it's a helluva town, The Bronx is up, the Battery's down, And the people ride around in a hole in the ground.

Now the incoming tide rolls in; the hours abruptly switch back to single digits again, and it's a little like the time you put your watch back on entering a different time zone. Now the buses knock off and the subway expresses turn into locals and the locals space themselves far apart; and as Johnny Carson's face hits millions of screens all at one and the same time, the incoming tide reaches its crest and pounds against the shore. There's a sudden splurge, a slew of taxis arriving at the hotel entrance one by one as regularly as though they were on a conveyor belt, emptying out and then going away again.

Then this too dies down, and a deep still sets in. It's an around-the-clock town, but this is the stretch; from now #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Locals quotes by Patrick Demarchelier
#153. My stepfather gave me a Kodak camera when I was 17 years old. I started working at a local photo store in Le Havre, France, taking passport pictures and photographing weddings. #Quote by Patrick Demarchelier
Locals quotes by Sun Tzu
#154. The enemy's spies who have come to spy on us must be sought out, tempted with bribes, led away and comfortably housed. Thus they will become double agents and available for our service. It is through the information brought by the double agent that we are able to acquire and employ local and inward spies. It is owing to his information, again, that we can cause the doomed spy to carry false tidings to the enemy. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Locals quotes by Bill Gates
#155. In K-12, almost everybody goes to local schools. Universities are a bit different because kids actually do pick the university. The bizarre thing, though, is that the merit of university is actually how good the students going in are: the SAT scores of the kids going in. #Quote by Bill Gates
Locals quotes by Bear Grylls
#156. It was a feeling that I could be a little different from everyone else of my age, and that, if pushed, I could battle against the forces of nature and prevail. Adventure felt the most natural thing in the world, and it was where I came alive. It is what made me feel, for the first time, really myself.
As I got older and the rest of my world got more complicated and unnatural, I sought more and more the identity and wholeness that adventure gave me.
In short, when I was wet, muddy, and cold, I felt like a million dollars, and when I was with the lads, with everyone desperately trying to be "cool," I felt more awkward and unsure of myself. I could do mud, but trying to be cool was never a success.
So I learned to love the former and shy away from the latter.
(Although I gave "cool" a brief, good go as a young teenager, buying winklepicker boots and listening to heavy metal records all through one long winter, both of which were wholly unsatisfying, and subsequently dropped as "boring.")
Instead, I would often dress up in my "worst" (aka my best) and dirtiest clothes, stand under the hosepipe in the garden, get soaking wet--in December--and then go off for a run on my own in the hills.
The locals thought me a bit bonkers, but my dog loved it, and I loved it. It felt wild, and it was a feeling that captured me more and more.
Once, I returned from one such run caked in mud and ran past a girl I quite fancied. I wondered if she might like the mudd #Quote by Bear Grylls
Locals quotes by Margaret Cho
#157. I am a big 'Ellen' fan. I have been one for quite a long time now. I used to do the local news talk shows with her in San Francisco, when we were both still kids. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Locals quotes by Kenneth Fisher
#158. Buying only what you know can end in disaster. Just think about Enron's employees and business partners, the 'locals' who bought lots of its stock because they thought they were in the know. #Quote by Kenneth Fisher
Locals quotes by Stephen King
#159. Although deer season doesn't start until November in Maine, the fields of October are often alive with gunshots; the locals are shooting as many peasants as they think their families will eat. #Quote by Stephen King
Locals quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#160. No animal on the face of the earth could conceive of taxation. You and I work roughly six months a year to pay our local, state and federal taxes. If nothing else, this should convince you that animals are smarter than people. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Locals quotes by Webster Tarpley
#161. In India, as we saw, the Sepoy Mutiny led to a vast reorganization of British colonialism in the area, sending out a viceroy from London and before too long, Queen Victoria was proclaimed "Empress of India," with this great empire, ruling over maharajahs and other local potentates. #Quote by Webster Tarpley
Locals quotes by James G. Stavridis
#162. You can't kill your way to success in a counter insurgency effort. You have to protect the people, get the civil military balance right, train the locals, and practice effective strategic communications. #Quote by James G. Stavridis
Locals quotes by Colin Cotterill
#163. Old man," she said. "Don't you want to prepare or something?"
"Prepare what?"
"Yourself. For death."
Siri laughed.
"Well, Bpoo. Let's see. If the Buddhists are right, I'm just on my way to the next incarnation. Unless there's a manual for how to behave correctly as a gnat I'm not sure how I'd prepare for that. If the Catholics are right, nothing short of an asbestos suit and a glass of iced water will help where I'm going. And if the communists are right, you do your best and when you're gone they put up a statue in your honor and the locals dry their laundry on it. So, if I'm going, you're the heir to today's legacy. #Quote by Colin Cotterill
Locals quotes by Tamara Keith
#164. Way back in 1979, as a guest on a local TV show in Arkansas, then Hillary Rodham was quizzed about not taking her husband's last name when they got married and keeping her job as a lawyer while being first lady of the state. #Quote by Tamara Keith
Locals quotes by Axel
#165. My favorite colors come from the shades of local earth. Dig in the ground and you'll find so many layers of color-amazing yellows, sand, browns, black, beige. #Quote by Axel
Locals quotes by Meik Wiking
#166. If a city is designed in a way that makes a long drive to work necessary, we harm the social health of that city. If a lot of people cycle, it's probably an indication that you live in a healthy neighborhood. This is something that should be seriously considered in urban planning, if you want to ensure a neighborhood togetherness and trust among locals. #Quote by Meik Wiking
Locals quotes by Reed Hundt
#167. Local television and local TV news isn't telling the voters about local candidates. #Quote by Reed Hundt
Locals quotes by Steve Martin
#168. The divided world of Aspen, where locals with a sense of entitlement were pitted against developers with a sense of condominiums. #Quote by Steve Martin
Locals quotes by Sean Duffy
#169. For small community banks and credit unions, like those in Central and Northern Wisconsin, the hundreds of new rules will require an estimated 2,260,631 labor hours just for compliance. Those are hours that your local bank or credit union will spend dealing with some Washington bureaucrat instead of focusing on the needs of customers like you. #Quote by Sean Duffy
Locals quotes by Emma Stone
#170. I always loved acting and improv and sketch comedy and theater, which I did at a local youth theater. #Quote by Emma Stone
Locals quotes by Yaroslav Trofimov
#171. The other problem is that the priority of many soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan is operational security: not getting killed. Now that is a very valid priority, but it has to be balanced against many other priorities, especially not killing too many locals in the process. #Quote by Yaroslav Trofimov
Locals quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#172. We had no alternative except that of preparing for direct action, whereby we would present our very bodies as a means of laying our case before the conscience of the local and national community. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Locals quotes by Alexandra Fuller
#173. Truthfully we were alone only in the ways Westerners speak of being alone in Africa, as if the few hundred locals by whom they are almost always surrounded are part of the landscape, instead of part of humanity. #Quote by Alexandra Fuller
Locals quotes by Bob Woodward
#174. Some newspapers have a hands-off policy on favored politicians. But it's generally very small newspapers or local TV stations. #Quote by Bob Woodward

Locals quotes by Anthony Bourdain

Locals quotes by Otto Schily

#181. Slavery cannot exist a day or an hour anywhere, unless it is supported by local police regulations. #Quote by Stephen A. Douglas
Locals quotes by Liu Cixin
#182. Why not? Of the four possible sites, this has the best electromagnetic environment." "What about the human environment? Comrades, don't just focus on the technical side. Look at how poor this place is. The poorer a village, the craftier the people. Do you understand? If the observatory were located here, there would be trouble between the scientists and the locals. I can imagine the peasants thinking of the astronomy complex as a juicy piece of meat that they can take bites from." This site was indeed not approved, and the reason was just what the task force leader had said. * #Quote by Liu Cixin
Locals quotes by Hoshyar Zebari

Locals quotes by John Lydon
#184. I never felt Irish. I always felt, 'I'm English, this is where I come from, and that's that.' Because you'd be reminded of that when you went to Ireland: 'Ye're not Oirish!' the locals would say. So it was like, 'Bloody hell, shot by both sides here.' I still love that Magazine song – so relevant to me, those lyrics. #Quote by John Lydon
Locals quotes by Prince Philip
#185. And if we could get the local leaders to appreciate their responsibility for the environment then they would be able to explain that responsibility to the people of their faith. #Quote by Prince Philip
Locals quotes by Richard Benjamin
#186. Problem with segregation isn't that people can't live in peaceful harmony singing "Kumbaya" - although that wouldn't be bad. The problem is that many of these Whitopian communities are taking state, local, and federal resources with them. #Quote by Richard Benjamin
Locals quotes by Sun Tzu
#187. Without local guides, your enemy employs the land as a weapon against you. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Locals quotes by Jan Egeland

Locals quotes by Neil Gaiman
#189. I was the kind of kid whose parents would drop him off at the local town library on their way to work, and I'd go and work my way through the children's area. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Locals quotes by Peter O'Toole
#190. I did quite enjoy the days when one went for a beer at one's local in Paris and woke up in Corsica. #Quote by Peter O'Toole
Locals quotes by Neil Gaiman
#191. He reached a large stream, of the kind the locals called a creek and pronounced crick, and decided to follow it. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Locals quotes by MyAnna Buring
#192. Normally I'm really lucky because I can go down to my local shops and no one cares. I take the Tube and the bus so it's kind of the perfect balance. #Quote by MyAnna Buring
Locals quotes by Doug Mack
#193. I wore only black socks, because I had heard that white ones were the classic sign of the American tourist. Black ones though,- those'll fool 'em. I supposed I hoped the European locals' conversation would go something like this:

PIERRE: Ha! Look at that tourist with his camera and guidebook!
JACQUES: Wait, but observe his socks! They are...black!
PIERRE: Zut alors! You are correct! He is one of us! What a fool I am! Let us go speak to him in English and invite him to lunch! #Quote by Doug Mack
Locals quotes by Alexandra Ivy
#194. Even if there was such a thing as a half-price sale at the local Ming outlet shop, she would have to work ten lifetimes to make up such a sum. Always supposing that it wasn't one of a kind.
Panic was no longer merely rearing. It was thundering through her at full throttle.
There was only one thing to be done, she realized. The mature, responsible, adult thing to do.
Hide the evidence. #Quote by Alexandra Ivy
Locals quotes by David Cameron
#195. I think it true that, you know, sometimes things start to change even before a government changes and, actually, I think you can begin to see even the Labour machine beginning to understand that it has become over-reliant on targets and processes, that local governments have been over-bossed and bullied. #Quote by David Cameron
Locals quotes by E.B. White
#196. Nationalism has two fatal charms for its devotees: It presupposes local self-sufficiency, which is a pleasant and desirable condition, and it suggests, very subtly, a certain personal superiority by reason of one's belonging to a place which is definable and familiar, as against a place that is strange, remote. #Quote by E.B. White
Locals quotes by C. A. Bartol
#197. Beauty is no local deity, like the Greek and Roman gods, but omnipresent. #Quote by C. A. Bartol
Locals quotes by Wallace Stevens
#198. All the great things have been denied and we live in an intricacy of new and local mythologies, political, economic, poetic, which are asserted with an ever-enlarging incoherence. #Quote by Wallace Stevens
Locals quotes by Hunter Shea
#199. You told us this place was haunted. How haunted is it?"

Paul cast a quick glance at the house. "I'm not sure. When they found the bodies twenty years ago, the place became off-limits. That was horror enough. There were whispers of strange stuff going on before then, but no one is alive who could verify a thing. Somehow, an urban legend grew about the whole island. "Don't go near haunted Ormsby Island. They say a reporter went out alone one night just after the mass murder had been discovered and never came back. Since anyone who had committed the murders was either dead or gone at that point, it had to be the island itself that offed the reporter. Mitch, Ormsby Island isn't even on most maps of Charleston Harbor. Locals will turn away the moment you even say its name. #Quote by Hunter Shea
Locals quotes by Rick Renzi
#200. If we can produce more ethanol and bio-diesel to help fuel our vehicles, we will create jobs, boost local economies and produce cleaner burning fuels. This will keep dollars here at home where they can have a positive impact on our economy. #Quote by Rick Renzi
