New Zealand quotes by Barbara Brookes
#1. Twenty two year old Connie Jones, who had boarded in the home of charismatic Methodist and pacifist Ormond Burton, was a member of the No More War movement and the Christian Pacifist Society. She first attended the Friday night public meetings at which the pacifists argued their case in 1941. She stepped onto the podium, stating, "the Lord Jesus Christ tells us to love one another," and was promptly arrested by Wellington's chief inspector of police. Charged with obstruction under the Emergency Regulations, she was sentenced to three months' hard labour with harsh conditions at the Point Halswell Reformatory - an experience that did nothing to dampen her commitment to pacifism. #Quote by Barbara Brookes
New Zealand quotes by Allan Border
#2. I was happy with the umpiring in India last year, New Zealand is OK these days, and the only real area of concern is Pakistan. They seem to have a chip on their shoulders about their cricket there. #Quote by Allan Border
New Zealand quotes by Alan Bennett
#3. Books are not about passing time. They're about other lives. Other worlds. Far from wanting time to pass, one just wishes one had more of it. If one wanted to pass the time one could go to New Zealand. #Quote by Alan Bennett
New Zealand quotes by Cassandra Clare
#4. The thing she loved most about being Jewish was that you could step into a synagogue anywhere on earth and feel like you'd come home. India, Brazil, New Zealand, even Mars - if you could rely on Shalom, Spacemen!, the homemade comic book that had been the highlight of Simon's third-grade Hebrew school experience. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
New Zealand quotes by Sydney Sierota
#5. I know that people from New Zealand don't ever wanna be confused with being Australians. #Quote by Sydney Sierota
New Zealand quotes by Ed Yong
#6. When microbiologists first started cataloguing the human microbiome in its entirety they hoped to discover a "core" microbiome: a group of species that everyone shares. It's now debatable if that core exists. Some species are common, but none is everywhere. If there is a core, it exists at the level of functions, not organisms. There are certain jobs, like digesting a certain nutrient or carrying out a specific metabolic trick, that are always filled by some microbe-just not always the same one. You see the same trend on a bigger scale. In New Zealand, kiwis root through leaf litter in search of worms, doing what a badger might do in England. Tigers and clouded leopards stalk the forests of Sumatra but in cat-free Madagascar that same niche is filled by a giant killer mongoose called the fossa; meanwhile, in Komodo, a huge lizard claims the top predator role. Different islands, different species, same jobs. The islands in question could be huge land masses, or individual people. #Quote by Ed Yong
New Zealand quotes by Melanie Lynskey
#7. There's not much of a follow-your-dreams kind of vibe in New Zealand or my family. #Quote by Melanie Lynskey
New Zealand quotes by Lydia Ko
#8. I've played such good golf, and it was hard coming up and it wasn't easy in any matches or any shots. It means a lot. I think hopefully it will mean a lot to New Zealand because I'm the next winner of the U.S. Amateur after Danny Lee. #Quote by Lydia Ko
New Zealand quotes by Primo Levi
#9. Are today's fears more or less founded than the fears of that time? When it comes to the future, we are just as blind as our fathers. Swiss and Swedes have their anti-nuclear shelters, but what will they find when they come out into the open? There are Polynesia, New Zealand, Tierra del Fuego, the Antarctic: perhaps they will remain unharmed. Obtaining a passport and entry visa is much easier than it was then, so why aren't we going? Why aren't 'we leaving our country? Why aren't we leaving "before"? #Quote by Primo Levi
New Zealand quotes by Jay Ryan
#10. Coming from New Zealand and Australia is like a tough pre-school for Hollywood. And having been on 'Neighbours,' even though the agents I met with hadn't seen it, they knew it's where Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce had come from. It was a foot in the door. #Quote by Jay Ryan
New Zealand quotes by Rhys Darby
#11. I was in the New Zealand army for like four years, the exact period of when it was on the air, so I never saw it. #Quote by Rhys Darby
New Zealand quotes by Damien Echols
#12. When we arrived we were met by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, both producers of the film. Lorri and I hadn't seen them in over a month and had missed them a great deal. As soon as I heard those New Zealand accents, the feel of "home" washed over me again. They have been with me every step of the way since my release, helping me. Thinking of them now makes my heart feel like it's about to burst with love. #Quote by Damien Echols
New Zealand quotes by Kimbra
#13. It feels like it's just starting in America and the UK. It's great to have a loyal fanbase in Australia and New Zealand. People in America say how polished our band are, but that didn't happen overnight; that came from doing all this touring back home. #Quote by Kimbra
New Zealand quotes by Martha Hunt
#14. I can't choose one favorite place because all destinations have something different to offer. My favorite city to explore is Paris; I love the culture of Morocco and the waterfalls in St. Lucia. I just can't choose one. I would like to go back to New Zealand to see more of what it has to offer. #Quote by Martha Hunt
New Zealand quotes by Glenn Turner
#15. As a kid in New Zealand, you play cricket in summer and rugby in winter. I played cricket and hockey. Not rugby. I wasn't brawny enough for it. Or silly enough, perhaps. #Quote by Glenn Turner
New Zealand quotes by Liz Halliday
#16. In Britain I focus on my horse riding. I ride everyday no matter what. I have a wonderful trainer called Joe Meyer. He is from New Zealand and competed in the World Games this year. I have been with him for four years and we have a good rapport. #Quote by Liz Halliday
New Zealand quotes by Tove Lo
#17. I'd love to come to New Zealand!! I've been to Australia a few times - I'm well aware it's not the same country. I've heard from people it's beautiful - great diving, music and no scary animals. #Quote by Tove Lo
New Zealand quotes by Helen Clark
#18. Fortunately New Zealand doesn't have land borders so we are able to be somewhat more rigorous on who gets in and out of our country than perhaps some people. #Quote by Helen Clark
New Zealand quotes by Helen Clark
#19. In the end, there will always be a fundamental difference of perspective between New Zealand and Australia on defense, whoever is in government. #Quote by Helen Clark
New Zealand quotes by Richard Bach
#20. Anyone desperate enough for suicide ... should be desperate enough to go to creative extremes to solve problems: elope at midnight, stow away on the boat to New Zealand and start over, do what they always wanted to do but were afraid to try. #Quote by Richard Bach
New Zealand quotes by David Coleman
#21. And with alphabetical irony Nigeria follows New Zealand #Quote by David Coleman
New Zealand quotes by Jack Barakat
#22. I've never been to New Zealand, but I can imagine it's beautiful. I don't know much about New Zealand ... but I do know that I did watch 'Lord Of The Rings' so it looks really pretty. #Quote by Jack Barakat
New Zealand quotes by Tanya Moir
#23. Our house has its back to the sea,' writes Hester in her journal. 'Below us, the ocean spreads to the sky, twitching wide and blue and hungry. One would think it to be infinite. But we, of course, know better. #Quote by Tanya Moir
New Zealand quotes by Murray Mexted
#24. In New Zealand I think we often take ourselves too seriously, and being able to laugh at yourself is necessary in life without being too precious. #Quote by Murray Mexted
New Zealand quotes by Hideki Tojo
#25. Australia and New Zealand are now threatened by the might of the Imperial Japanese forces, and both of them should know that any resistance is futile. #Quote by Hideki Tojo
New Zealand quotes by Orlando Bloom

New Zealand quotes by Jack Barakat

New Zealand quotes by Peter Jackson
#28. One of the best things about growing up in New Zealand is that if you are prepared to work hard and have faith in yourself, truly anything is possible. #Quote by Peter Jackson
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#29. She was an autocrat, didn't really believe in democracy. The benefit of her approach was that, if you work with twenty people and ask everybody's opinion, you would never achieve what she did. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by Julia Penelope
#30. As for us, we saw the police as a natural catastrophe - like floods, fires, earthquakes. There was nothing you could do about these things except to try and escape them. We had no analysis, no understanding that society could be changed. We simply tried to survive, as ourselves, as kamp girls, natural rebels. We did not feel that the police might not be entitled to hunt us, but accepted them as inevitable.

I was beaten up for suggesting that a woman ask for a lawyer. It was seem as a stupid - even dangerous - suggestion. Fighting back with threats of lawyers would only make the police even angrier at us. But part of me felt that what was happening was unfair and unjust, though I had no idea how things could ever be different.

Melbourne and Adelaide were exactly the same. The public lesbian scene was dangerous and difficult. There were many other New Zealand lesbians around, too. In spite of everything, I loved it. The "mateship" was amazing and close, important enough for any risk. And the freedom to be ourselves, to be real, to be queer, affirmed us.

There were private, closeted scenes too, but they were hard to find and cliquey. They were fearful of being "sprung" by kamps who were too obvious. They were mainly older middle-class women. I knew some of them, learnt many things from them - like how to behave in a nice restaurant if you are taken to dinner. But they too had no sense of anything being able to change - except for the one str #Quote by Julia Penelope
New Zealand quotes by Paul Cleave
#31. You simply couldn't make a living as an author if New Zealand was your only market. #Quote by Paul Cleave
New Zealand quotes by Sanath Jayasuriya
#32. I am not very happy the way things are going out there in New Zealand, #Quote by Sanath Jayasuriya
New Zealand quotes by Shehan Karunatilaka
#33. When a New Zealand journo, with a nose resembling the beak of his national bird, asked me why Lankans have long names, I told him I would rather have a long name than a long nose. He replied he'd rather have a long you-know-what. Such is the insightful cricketing analysis that goes on in the press box. #Quote by Shehan Karunatilaka
New Zealand quotes by Eleanor Catton
#34. A lucky man, I've always said, is a man who was lucky once, and after that, he learned a thing or two about investment. Luck only happens once and it's always an accident when it does. (Dick Mannering
19th century New Zealand goldfields magnate) #Quote by Eleanor Catton
New Zealand quotes by Daniel Anderson
#35. I come from the heart land of New Zealand. A place where men are men and there is no such thing as a latte. Where a day's work is only done one way. THE HARD WAY. Where the vehicle you drive doesn't symbolize who you are. A place where a beer is a beer and it comes only one way, ICE COLD. Yes the great land I like to call home the Waikato but yes all this beauty comes at a price obviously where men actually act like men not knob head; makeup wearing, tight jean wearing homos there will always be a shortage of real women. So just as the last generation of real men, almost every weekend we head into every bar, club, party or music festival we can in the hopes of finding a real women. Don't get me wrong, bars clubs a music fests are the best fun ever. And I drink alcohol like it's going out of fashion not that we care about fashion round here. See you in the heart land #Quote by Daniel Anderson
New Zealand quotes by Gabriel Mann
#36. One thing I loved about New Zealand was the indoor/outdoor lifestyle of the place. I remember going from Xboxing, jamming out on guitars and drum machines in my buddy's apartment, to a bike ride through the parks and up and down the streets all over the city, to the ocean, right into the water. I remember we were swimming outer ways and we got to a certain place where we wanted to see - or I wanted to see - how deep the water was. #Quote by Gabriel Mann
New Zealand quotes by Jenny Shipley
#37. New Zealand's taken some very significant decisions in relation to defence in the last two years. #Quote by Jenny Shipley
New Zealand quotes by Lewis Carroll
#38. Antipathies, I think
' (she was rather glad there WAS no one listening, this time, as it didn't sound at all the right word) '
but I shall have to ask them what the name of the country is, you know. Please, Ma'am, is this New Zealand or Australia? #Quote by Lewis Carroll
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#39. Knowledge is addictive. Keep it up. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#40. It's very hard to reach people in Greymouth with pottery or any form of art because they're allergic to it. Allergic to it ever since they began really because they've taken from the ground in the mining spirit without making or creating, and therefore anything that is creative they do not understand. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by Daniel Gillies
#41. I moved to New Zealand from Winnipeg when I was almost five. I hated it. It was to a city in the south of New Zealand called Invercargill and there was constant rain. There was a depressing sensation in the air. #Quote by Daniel Gillies
New Zealand quotes by Rose McIver
#42. I also have a role model back in New Zealand, a woman called Miranda Harcourt. She's an actress and a writer. Her willingness to stay open to material is really great. I read a lot, and I try to watch and listen to diverse material. #Quote by Rose McIver
New Zealand quotes by Ian McKellen
#43. That was the big effect Lord of the Rings had on me. It was discovering New Zealand. And even more precious were the people- not at all like the Australians. #Quote by Ian McKellen
New Zealand quotes by Lawrence Keeley
#44. early missionary in New Zealand heard a Maori warrior taunting the preserved head of an enemy chief in the following fashion:

You wanted to run away, did you? but my meri (war club] overtook you: and after you were cooked, you made food for my mouth. And where is your father? he is cooked: and where is your brother? he is eaten:-and where is your wife? there she sits, a wife for me:-and where are your children? there they are, with loads on their backs, carrying food, as my slaves.' In Maori warfare, decapitation marked the beginning, not the end, of a vanquished warrior's humiliation. #Quote by Lawrence Keeley
New Zealand quotes by Eleanor Catton
#45. I really wanted to write an adventure story, a murder-mystery that was set during the gold-rush years in New Zealand. #Quote by Eleanor Catton
New Zealand quotes by David Lange
#46. Will the United States pull the rug on New Zealand? The answer is no. They might polish the lino a bit harder and hope that I execute a rather unseemly glide across it. #Quote by David Lange
New Zealand quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#47. They are quiet for a long time. "Do you remember the time you told me you were afraid that you were a series of nasty surprises for me?" he asks him, and Jude nods, slightly. "You aren't," he tells him. "You aren't. But being with you is like being in this fantastic landscape," he continues, slowly. "You think it's one thing, a forest, and then suddenly it changes, and it's a meadow, or a jungle, or cliffs of ice. And they're all beautiful, but they're strange as well, and you don't have a map, and you don't understand how you got from one terrain to the next so abruptly, and you don't know when the next transition will arrive, and you don't have any of the equipment you need. And so you keep walking through, and trying to adjust as you go, but you don't really know what you're doing, and often you make mistakes, bad mistakes. That's sometimes what it feels like." They're silent. "So basically," Jude says at last, "basically, you're saying I'm New Zealand. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
New Zealand quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#48. Until I can feel as ecstatic about having a baby as I felt about going to New Zealand to search for giant squid, I cannot have a baby. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
New Zealand quotes by Eleanor Catton
#49. An interesting thing about New Zealand, you know, literature is that it really didn't begin in any real sense until the 20th century. #Quote by Eleanor Catton
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#50. Leading the way forward at great cost to herself, her magnificent energy was so intense that it tumbles down still through many lives. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#51. Meanwhile the doctor in Kaitaia had made known to the Education Dept the behaviour patterns of the Rusts in Te Hapua. The Dept always interfered in the private lives of teachers. Break up in marriage was not to be tolerated and an intervention of this authority forced the Rusts to report to Parawera School in the Waikato. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by Jacob M. Appel
#52. Know your load. That's rule numero uno in this business, which is why I make them count the penguins out in front of me one at a time. I'm not going to be the schmuck who shows up in Orlando two
birds short of a dinner party ... I know I'm pulling out of Houston with exactly forty-two Gentoo penguins, seventeen Jamaican land iguanas, four tuataras from New Zealand, and a pair of rare, civet-like mammals called linsangs. No more, no less. #Quote by Jacob M. Appel
New Zealand quotes by Sam Neill
#53. Try and fit in in a New Zealand playground with an Armagh accent - it doesn't work. #Quote by Sam Neill
New Zealand quotes by Peter Jackson
#54. I'm not going to head off and do a Marvel film. So if I don't do a Marvel film, I don't have any other choice - I've got to go make a small New Zealand movie! #Quote by Peter Jackson
New Zealand quotes by Barbara Elsborg
#55. 'How big's your dick?' Zak blurted.
His father gave a roar of outrage.
'How good's your dental plan?' asked Number Five.
Zak laughed.
'You can't ask that,' his father snapped at his side.
'My favorite composer is Rachmaninov. My last client moved to New Zealand. There's nothing stuck to my shoe. I had fruit for breakfast and I don't waste my time worrying. I make sure there's never anything to worry about.' He walked across the room and put his mouth close to Zak's ear. 'In answer to your last. How responsive's your gag reflex?' #Quote by Barbara Elsborg
New Zealand quotes by Mark Twain
#56. If it would not look too much like showing off, I would tell the reader where New Zealand is. #Quote by Mark Twain
New Zealand quotes by Alfred Lansing
#57. They thought of home, naturally, but there was no burning desire to be in civilization for its own sake. Worsley recorded: "Waking on a fine morning I feel a great longing for the smell of dewy wet grass and flowers of a Spring morning in New Zealand or England. One has very few other longings for civilization - good bread and butter, Munich beer, Coromandel rock oysters, apple pie and Devonshire cream are pleasant reminiscences rather than longings. #Quote by Alfred Lansing
New Zealand quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#58. To give you an idea of the size of the Earth, I will tell you that before the invention of electricity it was necessary to maintain, over the whole of six continents, a veritable army of 462, 511 lamplighters for the street lamps. Seen from a slight distance that would make a splendid spectacle. the movements of this army would be regulated like those of the ballet in the opera. First would come the turn of the lamplighters of New Zealand and Australia. Having set their lamps alight, these would go off to sleep. Next, the lamplighters of China and Siberia would enter for their steps in the dance, and then they too would be waved back into the wings. After that would come the turn of the lamplighters of Russia and the Indies; then those of Africa and Europe; then those of South America; then those of North America. And never would they make a mistake in the order of their entry upon the stage. It would be magnificent. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
New Zealand quotes by Russell Crowe
#59. I'd move to Los Angeles if New Zealand and Australia were swallowed up by a tidal wave, if there was a bubonic plague in England and if the continent of Africa disappeared from some Martian attack. #Quote by Russell Crowe
New Zealand quotes by Zac Farro
#60. I love coffee, I love my family, I love being in New Zealand - that's honestly one of my top five favourite things - faith is important to me, and I hope to be married one day. I love that coffee was number one. #Quote by Zac Farro
New Zealand quotes by Arthur Kemp
#61. Unless legal and illegal immigration is halted and reversed, European First World nations across all of Europe from Spain to Russia, North America, Australia and New Zealand - will be destroyed and have their very culture and civilisation changed to that of the Third World. Immigration is now the single most important issue facing all First World nations, and will determine whether Western Civilisation continues to exist or not. #Quote by Arthur Kemp
New Zealand quotes by Kiri Te Kanawa
#62. I grew up in the New Zealand countryside. We didn't have television until I was 14, so sing-alongs were our only entertainment. #Quote by Kiri Te Kanawa
New Zealand quotes by Helen Clark
#63. It's fair to say that, for much of my lifetime, New Zealand certainly was a property-owning democracy and working people, ordinary people, had assets. #Quote by Helen Clark
New Zealand quotes by John Key
#64. Sure I can sit around and do absolutely nothing for the next nine years and I might survive that long but it's not going to take New Zealand anywhere. #Quote by John Key
New Zealand quotes by Michael King
#65. 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. #Quote by Michael King
New Zealand quotes by Glenn Turner
#66. I keep trying to bring a more professional approach to New Zealand cricket. It's an uphill battle. I stay in the game because I find it intriguing and interesting. I'm not interested in coaching international sides. I don't mind short-term coaching. I don't want to get involved in the politics of teams. #Quote by Glenn Turner
New Zealand quotes by Michael King
#67. 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. #Quote by Michael King
New Zealand quotes by Rob Portman
#68. I am disappointed that the President made the decision to have Ambassador Froman sign the TPP agreement in New Zealand. #Quote by Rob Portman
New Zealand quotes by Sean Mackin
#69. When I was fifteen or eighteen, I never even imagined I would be in a band, let alone being able to travel to places like Australia and New Zealand. #Quote by Sean Mackin
New Zealand quotes by Chrystia Freeland
#70. A 2011 OECD report showed that, over the past three decades, in Sweden, Finland, Germany, Israel, and New Zealand
all countries that have chosen a version of capitalism less red in tooth and claw than the American model
inequality has grown as fast as or faster than in the United States. France, proud, as usual, of its exceptionalism, seemed to be the one major Western outlier, but recent studies have shown that over the past decade it, too, has fallen into line. #Quote by Chrystia Freeland
New Zealand quotes by Kimbra
#71. I moved from New Zealand to Melbourne when I was 17. I'd planned to go to university to study French, but I was offered a contract to write and record an album that was too good to pass up. Looking back now I think that was pretty young but, at the time, I was ready to have an adventure. #Quote by Kimbra
New Zealand quotes by Paul Watson
#72. Pete Bethune is a hero in New Zealand. He's a hero worldwide to people who want to see the end of whaling. #Quote by Paul Watson
New Zealand quotes by Bill Gates
#73. The world is very disparate, in terms of the US using the most energy per person, and then the other rich countries - Europe, Japan, New Zealand - using about half of what we do, and then the world average being about a fifth of what we use, with China just now surpassing the world average. #Quote by Bill Gates
New Zealand quotes by Linda Collins
#74. Malcolm's friend, Ishak, tells him to be strong. Be strong - it is also a saying used by New Zealand Maori who will urge, kia kaha. My husband repeats to himself, Be strong, as if trying it on for size. Yet he is finding it impossible to be strong. He realises that Ishak's advice is that of a believer, one who sees a point to all this suffering. A superior being has willed it, and there is life after death. Malcolm admires that certainty, that belief. But he does not share it. #Quote by Linda Collins
New Zealand quotes by Robert M. Parker, Jr.
#75. It's nearly impossible to believe just how provincial the wine world was in 1978, the year I launched my journal, 'The Wine Advocate.' There were no wines exported from New Zealand and virtually none from Australia (including Penfolds Grange, one of the greatest wines in existence). #Quote by Robert M. Parker, Jr.
New Zealand quotes by Hale Irwin
#76. New Zealand has a great reputation in America for golf. #Quote by Hale Irwin
New Zealand quotes by Martin Henderson
#77. I walked two hours to an audition once and was so sweaty that someone said, 'Oh, you guys from New Zealand don't shower.' #Quote by Martin Henderson
New Zealand quotes by Tom Curren
#78. New Zealand is my favorite country to visit. #Quote by Tom Curren
New Zealand quotes by John Oliver
#79. Welcome to The Daily Show, I'm John Oliver. Jon Stewart is still not here. He is currently living out a live-action Lord of the Rings role-playing experience deep in the New Zealand wilderness. #Quote by John Oliver
New Zealand quotes by Linda Collins
#80. If we had flown Victoria to New Zealand, she would have been at a funeral home, with private viewings in an atmosphere of stilted, muffled unquiet. I would have had little opportunity to sit with the body and pour out my lament.
The Singaporeans would not have been there with their reassuring ease in the ritual of mourning. My family might have come bristling with disrespect, and rent the air with accusations and blame. Some mourners would have been embarrassed by my tears. They and others would have wanted the whole thing done and dusted quickly. The funeral director or an assistant might well have been the ones dressing the body. I would have not realised the normality of death so
quickly, and more importantly at this point, the absolute necessity to go briefly mad with grief, to cover yourself - metaphorically - in the dowdy burlap of mourning. #Quote by Linda Collins
New Zealand quotes by Charli XCX
#81. I've never been to New Zealand actually. All I know is that there's a lot of greenery there. I'd love to come and play a show there sometime soon for sure! #Quote by Charli XCX
New Zealand quotes by Christian S. Simpson
#82. But for me to start the journey of writing a book about my life, the first place I had to re visit was my past. A book written from the deepest part of my heart as so many tears at times did fall upon the keyboard as I typed away. #Quote by Christian S. Simpson
New Zealand quotes by Stephen Pagliuca
#83. One place I haven't made it to - mainly because it's so far away - is Australia, so I'd love to go there. I've heard great things about Australia and New Zealand. #Quote by Stephen Pagliuca
New Zealand quotes by Alana Haim
#84. I've only seen pictures of New Zealand but everything I see is so pretty. Your eyes just ... I don't think my eyes could take the beauty! #Quote by Alana Haim
New Zealand quotes by Henry Rollins
#85. There is no place in the world like Australia. Not even its beautiful neighbor New Zealand. #Quote by Henry Rollins
New Zealand quotes by Viggo Mortensen
#86. When we shot 'The Lord of the Rings,' we had special permission to film in wild areas of New Zealand that could be accessed only by helicopter. They would drop us off and we would work all day, and they'd pick us up and take us out again. #Quote by Viggo Mortensen
New Zealand quotes by Beryl Dov
#87. The Sherwood Forest Chronicles
1. If Robin Hood steals from the rich, doesn't that make them poor? Does he give them their money back? I mean, what the point of robbing to begin with if your mission statement is logically flawed?
2. If the Sheriff of Nottingham is such an asshole, why isn't he the Prime Minister of Nottingham?
3. Why don't I see elves here? Did all the elves of Sherwood Forest migrate to New Zealand to become extras on the Peter Jackson's Hobbit films?
4. Does Little John even know what an oxymoron is?
5. If Smokey the Bear came to Sherwood Forest to make a public service announcement about preventing forest fires, would he leave with arrows in his ass or would the Merry Men feast on bear meat for several days? And what makes the Merry Men merry in the first place?
6. What do you think? Does Robin Hood shop at Walmart or Target? #Quote by Beryl Dov
New Zealand quotes by Louise Nurding
#88. New Zealand was one of the most beautiful countries to drive through for the scenery and the vast scale of the place. #Quote by Louise Nurding
New Zealand quotes by Franz Wisner
#89. Fresh start. Day two, socks around my ankles, way down, two Maori boys approached me before I could get to my desk. Probelm solved. That day and in the many enjoyable ones that followed, my classmates asked me dozen of questions about America, while detailing essential subjects for a New Zealand boy in 1976, including lollies, meat pies and chips, cricket and rugby, ABBA and Tintin comic books, and why their relatives with tattoos on their face did that funy dance while sticking out their tounges. #Quote by Franz Wisner
New Zealand quotes by Naomi Klein
#90. In 1991, Disney forced a group of New Zealand parents in a remote country town to remove their amateur renditions of Pluto and Donald Duck from a playground mural; and Barney has been breaking up children's birthday parties across the U.S., claiming that any parent caught dressed in a purple dinosaur suit is violating its trademark. The Lyons Group, which owns the Barney character, "has sent 1,000 letters to shop owners" renting or selling the offending costumes. "They can have a dinosaur costume. It's when it's a purple dinosaur that it's illegal, and it doesn't matter what shade of purple, either," says Susan Elsner Furman, Lyons' spokesperson. #Quote by Naomi Klein
New Zealand quotes by Michael Pollan
#91. More than any other single trait, it is the apple's genetic variability - its ineluctable wildness - that accounts for its ability to make itself at home in places as different from one another as New England and New Zealand, Kazakhstan and California. Wherever the apple tree goes, its offspring propose so many different variations on what it means to be an apple - at least five per apple, several thousand per tree - that a couple of these novelties are almost bound to have whatever qualities it takes to prosper in the tree's adopted home. #Quote by Michael Pollan
New Zealand quotes by John Key
#92. I want to leave New Zealand in better shape than I found it. I know the job of prime minister is not forever and I'm going to do the best I can every day to make that difference. #Quote by John Key
New Zealand quotes by Andy Serkis
#93. My very, very first moment on set on 'Lord of the Rings' in 2000 was me in a lycra suit, six and a half thousand feet up on a mountain in New Zealand, standing in front of 250 crew who were all wondering what I was doing - myself included. #Quote by Andy Serkis
New Zealand quotes by Helen Clark
#94. Well of course New Zealand isn't anti-American. #Quote by Helen Clark
New Zealand quotes by Elijah Wood
#95. There's a real purity in New Zealand that doesn't exist in the states. It's actually not an easy thing to find in our world anymore. It's a unique place because it is so far away from the rest of the world. There is a sense of isolation and also being protected. #Quote by Elijah Wood
New Zealand quotes by Helen Clark
#96. Well, there have been periods in the past when prime ministers of Australia and New Zealand were at each others' throats publicly and frequently. That's not productive at all. #Quote by Helen Clark
New Zealand quotes by Martin Henderson
#97. I'm quite proud of growing up in New Zealand where, from quite early on in primary school, you're learning to count in Maori, Maori mythology and dances and colours and history, and I think that gives a child a really good grounding. #Quote by Martin Henderson
New Zealand quotes by Rhys Darby
#98. What Taika [Watiti] still bring to it [Hunt for the Wilderpeople], it really sums up what life is like in New Zealand, or what our sensibilities, our sense of humor, how we come together, how easy it would be, feels like. You know, we have a small population and so you know the bizarreness of the police getting involved in this manhunt, how the men ... And then eventually, the army all get intwines. #Quote by Rhys Darby
New Zealand quotes by Aaron Patzer
#99. I've been spending quite a bit of time in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the U.K. as Mint is expanding globally, and I'm personally doing much of the research and business deals to make them happen. #Quote by Aaron Patzer
New Zealand quotes by Alexis Krasilovsky
#100. When asked if he had a special feeling for books, critic-turned-filmmaker Francois Truffaut answered, "No. I love them and films equally, but how I love them!" As an example, Truffaut gave the example that his feeling of love for "Citizen Kane" (USA, 1941) "is expressed in that scene in 'The 400 Blows' where Antoine lights a candle before the picture of Balzac.' My book lights candles for m any of the great authors of this world: Chinua Achebe (Nigeria), Angela Carter (UK), Saratchandra Chattopadhyay (India), Janet Frame (New Zealand), Yu Hua (China), Stieg Larsson (Sweden), Clarice Lispector (Brazil), Mario Vargas Llosa (Peru), Naguib Mifouz (Egypt), Murasaki Shikibu (Japan), and Alice Walker (USA) - to name but a few. Furthermore, graphic novels, manga, musicals, television, webisodes and even amusement park rides like 'Pirates of the Caribbean' can inspire work in adaptation. Let's be open to learning from them all. ("Great Adaptations: Screenwriting and Global Storytelling," 2) #Quote by Alexis Krasilovsky
New Zealand quotes by Evangeline Lilly
#101. My favorite parts about 'The Battle of Five Armies' were the moments where you could clearly see that we were looking at New Zealand. That it wasn't done in post, it wasn't CGI, it was the beautiful, incredible creation of Mother Nature in all of her splendor. #Quote by Evangeline Lilly
New Zealand quotes by William Golding
#102. Malcolm Bradbury made the point, and I don't know whether it's a valid one or not, that the real English at the moment is not the English spoken in England or in America or even in Canada or Australia or New Zealand. The real English is the English which is a second language, so that it's rather like Latin in the days of the Roman Empire when people had their own languages, but had Latin in order to communicate. #Quote by William Golding
New Zealand quotes by Tom Kelley
#103. I'm quite comfortable with making the odd mistake, if it comes in the pursuit of new opportunities and new ideas" Rob Fyfe, Air New Zealand CEO #Quote by Tom Kelley
New Zealand quotes by Laura Poitras
#104. The most striking thing Snowden has revealed is the depth of what the NSA and the Five Eyes countries [Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Great Britain, and the US] are doing, their hunger for all data, for total bulk dragnet surveillance where they try to collect all communications and do it all sorts of different ways. Their ethos is "collect it all." #Quote by Laura Poitras
New Zealand quotes by Robert Muldoon
#105. New Zealand was colonised initially by those Australians who had the initiative to escape. #Quote by Robert Muldoon
New Zealand quotes by Aberjhani
#106. The realization of dreams, like every battle for freedom, has always required compromise to one degree or another. When the result of a concession, however, is the mutilation of your soul or the cancellation of someone else's future, then it may be said the desired goal was corrupted or destroyed rather than attained. #Quote by Aberjhani
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#107. In my small way I became an integral part of the pottery movement, and added fuel to the fire which consumed New Zealand and and swept pottery to the forefront of the of the fifties and sixties. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by Katherine Mansfield
#108. Oh, waters - do not cover me!
I would look long and long at those beautiful stars!
Oh my wings - lift me - lift me
I am not so dreadfully hurt... #Quote by Katherine Mansfield
New Zealand quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#109. Canada, Australia and New Zealand have apologised for their treatment of native peoples. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
New Zealand quotes by Walter Williams
#110. Maybe your college professor taught that the legacy of colonialism explains Third World poverty. That's nonsense as well. Canada was a colony. So were Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. In fact, the richest country in the world, the United States, was once a colony. By contrast, Ethiopia, Liberia, Tibet, Sikkim, Nepal and Bhutan were never colonies, but they are home to the world's poorest people. #Quote by Walter Williams
New Zealand quotes by Malcolm Fraser
#111. Maoris now own over half the commercial fishing industry in New Zealand. #Quote by Malcolm Fraser
New Zealand quotes by Rose McIver
#112. Since I was growing up in New Zealand where there's a hole in the ozone layer above us, we get so much sun damage to our skin, and the thing we can do to look after ourselves is use sunscreen during the day, but making sure your skin is well hydrated while you sleep. #Quote by Rose McIver
New Zealand quotes by Karl Urban
#113. It was always something I knew I was capable of and from an early age my mother was involved in the film industry. She used to work at a production company. So I was exposed to a renaissance period of films in New Zealand back in the early 80's. #Quote by Karl Urban
New Zealand quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#114. Today, the society called New Zealand is composed of 4.5 million Sapiens and 50 million sheep. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
New Zealand quotes by Bret McKenzie
#115. I grew up watching the 'Muppets.' In New Zealand, the 'Muppets' were as big as anywhere else I think. It was a pretty global phenomenon. #Quote by Bret McKenzie
New Zealand quotes by Aidan Turner
#116. In 'The Hobbit,' there were British, Irish, Australian and New Zealand actors, and Peter Jackson was adamant that we would all sound like we were from Britain somewhere. #Quote by Aidan Turner
New Zealand quotes by Peter Jackson
#117. New Zealand is not a small country but a large village. #Quote by Peter Jackson
New Zealand quotes by David Farrier
#118. In New Zealand, we have a one-party disclosure system, where if one of you knows you're being recorded, it's completely fine. It doesn't matter if the other person doesn't know. Look, I'm not breaking new ground by recording people who don't want to be recorded. #Quote by David Farrier
New Zealand quotes by Melanie Lynskey
#119. People in New Zealand go out of their way to not be impressed by things. #Quote by Melanie Lynskey
New Zealand quotes by Karl Urban
#120. I've got a New Zealand film coming out here called Out of the Blue. It's a very heavy story, and it's the first time I've played a character who is alive. #Quote by Karl Urban
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#121. I realised that I had become too introverted. When you are the person everyone comes to in an isolated area, you have no-one to discuss things with. It's good up to a point but dreadful in a way. You simply have to have the corners rubbed off you and have criticism that's pretty cruel if you are to toe the line. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by C.S. Lewis
#122. To read - without military knowledge or good maps - accounts of fighting which were distorted before they reached the Divisional general and further distorted before they left him and then 'written up' out of all recognition by journalists, to strive to master what will be contradicted the next day, to fear and hope intensely on shaky evidence, is surely an ill use of the mind. Even in peacetime I think those are very wrong who say that schoolboys should be encouraged to read newspapers. Nearly all that a boy reads there in his teens will be known before he is twenty to have been false in emphasis and interpretation, if not in fact as well, and most of it will have lost all importance. Most of what he remembers he will therefore have to unlearn; and he will probably have acquired an incurable taste for vulgarity and sensationalism and the fatal habit of fluttering from paragraph to paragraph to learn how an actress has been divorced in California, a train derailed in France, and quadruplets born in new Zealand. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
New Zealand quotes by Sarah A. Chrisman
#123. By the time we got to the store on our pre-Independence Day shopping trip, I had counted no less than twenty-four deer actively engaged in demolishing people's gardens. Twenty-four deer aligned along a walk of one mile! I pointed out to Gabriel that this was a rather ridiculous situation on our way to lay down hard-earned dollars for deer meat. However, we hadn't even gotten to the punchline yet. When we went inside the store and found the venison, the back of the package was labeled PRODUCT OF NEW ZEALAND. Apparently modern Americans find it more palatable for their meat to have a seven-thousand-mile carbon footprint than to come from their own backyards. #Quote by Sarah A. Chrisman
New Zealand quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#124. I've only been to New Zealand once, about 1989. It was incredibly beautiful, kind of like the ideal of where I live in New England - all that and then some - but I can't say I was there long enough to get any very clear idea. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
New Zealand quotes by Debbie Cowens
#125. Mrs Bennet was a great connoissuer of feminine beauty and indeed it must be owned that she herself was a very handsome woman. As to the sweetness of her temper, there was less compelling evidence; yet in all her forty years she had given none of her family or general acquaintance reason to suppose her a murderess. #Quote by Debbie Cowens
New Zealand quotes by K.M. Shea
#126. We stick to the magical places in the world," Asahi clarified.

"Places like the MBRC, the Redwood forest of California, the less populated parts of New Zealand and Japan, Disney World, and Atlantis," Madeline listed, ticking the places off on her fingers.

"Wait, Disney World?" I interrupted.

"The most magical place on Earth. #Quote by K.M. Shea
New Zealand quotes by Ian Beattie
#127. If Northern Ireland had better weather, it would be like New Zealand. It's an immensely beautiful country. #Quote by Ian Beattie
New Zealand quotes by John Key
#128. We are a small, open economy, highly dependent on global flows. It is inevitably a demand that dramatically alters and that is reflected in what we feel here in New Zealand. So there is at its most basic level a limit to what we can do and that is true everywhere. #Quote by John Key
New Zealand quotes by Paula Scher

New Zealand quotes by Brian Cox
#131. Unlike New Zealand, which has nothing especially predatory, Australia is full of spiders and crocodiles and all kinds of animals that will eat you and sting you. #Quote by Brian Cox
New Zealand quotes by Bailee Madison
#132. I was trying to get into the business from a young age, but I don't think I really realized how much I loved it until I booked my first movie and found myself in New Zealand for six months filming Bridge to Terabithia. #Quote by Bailee Madison
New Zealand quotes by Sam Neill
#133. I think it took us all by surprise. I mean, I knew that people in New Zealand would like [Hunt for the Wilderpeople], but no one really anticipated how much they would embrace it as it is. And it's playing widely in Australia now; they're running it as well. It's going to be interesting to see how it does it in the States, but I think if Sundance was any indication, I imagine it could do well. #Quote by Sam Neill
New Zealand quotes by Michael O'Leary
#134. The chattering bloody classes, or what I call the liberal Guardian readers, they're all buying SUVs to drive around London. I smile at these loons who drive their SUVs down to Sainsbury's and buy kiwi fruit from New Zealand. They're flown in from New Zealand for Christ sakes. They're the equivalent of environmental nuclear bombs! #Quote by Michael O'Leary
New Zealand quotes by Bret McKenzie
#135. Now it looks like I'll be known as the musical comedy guy. Which is good news for me. Or I'll be known as the New Zealand idiot. #Quote by Bret McKenzie

#139. God bless America. God save the Queen. God defend New Zealand and thank Christ for Australia. #Quote by Russell Crowe
New Zealand quotes by Rose McIver
#140. I always think about the settlers who moved to New Zealand in the 1800s. They hadn't even been to the place before. They just packed their bags and shipped over knowing they'd never see their family again or be able to speak to them - they'd maybe get a letter if they were lucky. #Quote by Rose McIver
New Zealand quotes by Ngaio Marsh
#141. What do you think, Mr Alleyn? If there's another war will the young chaps come at it, same as we did, thinking it's great? And get the same jolt? What do you reckon?"

"I'm afraid to speculate," said Alleyn. #Quote by Ngaio Marsh
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#142. The art stream is filled with snags and has no volume so it has no support. If you finally choose art, no amount of reason or common sense can discourage you. You must selfishly carry on. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by John Key
#143. I think for the most part people are proud of the bicultural foundation New Zealand is built on and the fact that we are a multicultural society. #Quote by John Key
New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#144. In 1946 there was no money in art, no dealer galleries, no craft shops. After the war we started to teach art in every school for the first time. Our generation played a crucial role. We were the stepping stones towards today's galleries. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist
New Zealand quotes by Ladyhawke
#145. I'm just a small-town New Zealand girl. But, I do think it was incredibly necessary for me. Wild Things wouldn't exist if I hadn't have made some dramatic changes and that all happened in LA. #Quote by Ladyhawke
New Zealand quotes by Nathan Wolfe
#146. The reality is: By the time swine flu got on the radar screen of global public health, it had already spread. It was already in the States, it was in Mexico, it was in New Zealand. By the time it reaches that point, you've lost the ability to contain it. #Quote by Nathan Wolfe
New Zealand quotes by Olafur Eliasson

New Zealand quotes by Helen Clark
#148. I think it's inevitable that New Zealand will become a republic and that would reflect the reality that New Zealand is a totally sovereign-independent 21st century nation 12,000 miles from the United Kingdom. #Quote by Helen Clark
New Zealand quotes by Lewis Black
#149. If the people of New Zealand want to be part of our world, I believe they should hop off their islands, and push 'em closer. #Quote by Lewis Black
New Zealand quotes by Richard Dawkins
#150. Maybe scientists are fundamentalist when it comes to defining in some abstract way what is meant by 'truth'. But so is everybody else. I am no more fundamentalist when I say evolution is true than when I say it is true that New Zealand is in the southern hemisphere. We believe in evolution because the evidence supports it, and we would abandon it overnight if new evidence arose to disprove it. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
New Zealand quotes by Ellie Goulding
#151. In Australia and New Zealand, and New Zealand especially, I always find everyone is so nice and friendly. It's one of the few places that I remember visually, like I remember where I stayed and my surroundings - and that's a good sign, because I've got a terrible memory. I'm looking forward to it! #Quote by Ellie Goulding
New Zealand quotes by The Rocket Summer
#152. I can't believe I'm in New Zealand, I can't wait to play. It's just so beautiful out here and so awesome. #Quote by The Rocket Summer
New Zealand quotes by Anthony Albanese
#153. The fact is Qatar, Etihad, Emirates, Singapore, Garuda, all of the three Chinese airlines, Air New Zealand - the fact is that international aviation relies very much upon agreements between nation-states, and it is not an area in which you have free market operations. #Quote by Anthony Albanese
New Zealand quotes by Eleanor Catton
#154. I grew up on the South Island of New Zealand, in a city chosen and beloved by my parents for its proximity to the mountains - Christchurch is two hours distant from the worn saddle of Arthur's Pass, the mountain village that was and is my father's spiritual touchstone, his chapel and cathedral in the wild. #Quote by Eleanor Catton

New Zealand quotes by Bellatuscana
#157. It is 1908.

The stars shone above in the night sky as a steamship floated among the clouds.

It's captain, Captain Otra, looked at his watch. He was ahead of his delivery schedule by 30 minutes to deliver the British Government it's much-needed order of concentrated milk and goat cheese from the shores of New Zealand.

He had inherited the business from his wife's father. His wife had passed roughly 5 years ago.

His daughter Lux Otra was tinkering for the hundredth time on her grandfather's sky faring compass, taking it apart and putting it back together. Each time she fixed, the compass worked perfectly again. Memorizing these intricate steps would give her a temporary satisfaction but now she couldn't do it anymore. She set the compass down and sighed in frustration. #Quote by Bellatuscana
New Zealand quotes by Eleanor Catton
#158. Astrology's a moving system that depends on where you're looking at it from on Earth. My horoscope here in London would be completely different to down in New Zealand. #Quote by Eleanor Catton
New Zealand quotes by Rhys Darby
#159. I know as far as things like the Thunderbirds, there's a New Zealand connection. X-Files, my connection there ... I mean, it could be zeitgeist. I mean, I'm into the paranormal. I have a podcast about cryptozoology. So it's out there that I'm into weird stuff. #Quote by Rhys Darby
New Zealand quotes by Tony Greig

#164. I'd come back after having served as ambassador to New Zealand and found that I had real concerns about the direction in which this country was headed. #Quote by Carol Moseley Braun
New Zealand quotes by Verghese Kurien
#165. I was to learn yet another valuable but sad lesson: that the technical advice of 'experts' is all too often dictated by the economic interests of the advanced countries and not by the needs or ground realities in developing countries. Without exception, technical experts from England and New Zealand told us that buffalo milk could not be converted to milk powder. We showed them how it could be done. #Quote by Verghese Kurien

New Zealand quotes by Theresa Sjoquist
#168. Today they are teaching the subject of art as a frill in school, partly due to intellectual preciousness that has crept into art departments with the making of the History of Art. Intellectualising places art on a pedestal only for the few, causing New Zealanders to revert to the invented snobbery that tends to ignore anything arty as exotic, unattainable, not wholesome. #Quote by Theresa Sjoquist

New Zealand quotes by Chris Baio
#170. I think Justin Bieber played a couple of songs up the block from it - and they said that some-one in his camp came and got him a burger. We had been talking about him a lot. Especially actually, last time we came to Australia, C.T. was on a real big Justin Bieber kick. I just thought it was really interesting to finally cross paths with him in New Zealand. And like really - the TV, everyone's just talking about it on the radio - it's a big deal that he was here. I think he just left. #Quote by Chris Baio
New Zealand quotes by Kodi Smit-McPhee
#171. 'Slow West' is a film that I did with Michael Fassbender in New Zealand and Scotland. The director was John McLean. It's a film set in the 1800s. I play a young Scottish boy brought up in the royal family. I fall in love with someone who works on our land. #Quote by Kodi Smit-McPhee

New Zealand quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#175. And how do trees register that the warmer days are because of spring and not late summer? The appropriate reaction is triggered by a combination of day length and temperature. Rising temperatures mean it's spring. Falling temperatures mean it's fall. Trees are aware of that as well. And that's why species such as oaks or beeches, which are native to the Northern Hemisphere, adapt to reversed cycles in the Southern Hemisphere if they are exported to New Zealand and planted there. And what this proves as well, by the way, is that trees must have a memory. How else could they inwardly compare day lengths or count warm days? #Quote by Peter Wohlleben
New Zealand quotes by Lorde
#176. I think it would be impossible not to be an Internet kid, coming from New Zealand, because culturally it's a little barren. #Quote by Lorde

New Zealand quotes by Tracey Alvarez
#179. But baby, you started this." The hand on her hip tugged her closer, her inner thighs brushing against the smooth fabric pulled taut over his long legs.
She tugged at the fingers on her hip, wriggling at the same time, desperate to escape. "And now I'm ending it."
"I'll decide where it ends," he said. #Quote by Tracey Alvarez
New Zealand quotes by Katherine Jenkins
#180. I remember performing with the Choir as an instrumentalist when I was still in school and it was wonderful to share the stage with them again more recently in Rhyl and at the opening of the Wales vs New Zealand rugby international at the Millennium Stadium. Here's wishing everyone involved in the Choir every success - I can't wait to perform with you again. #Quote by Katherine Jenkins
New Zealand quotes by Tracey Alvarez
#181. Then Ben's mouth descended again and her thoughts, as fickle as tiny fish, swam out of her head. Gentle brushes of his lips turned into more insistent strokes of his mouth. Sexually frustrated widow or not, there was little doubt the man could kiss her into a melted puddle of goo. #Quote by Tracey Alvarez

New Zealand quotes by Thomas Sowell
#184. The term "liberal" originally referred politically to those who wanted to liberate people - mainly from the oppressive power of government. That is what it still means in various European countries or in Australia and New Zealand. It is the American meaning that is unusual: People who want to increase the power of government, in order to accomplish various social goals. #Quote by Thomas Sowell

New Zealand quotes by Jane Campion
#186. I took four years off after 'In the Cut' because I wanted to see who I'd be without work. I even tried being a hermit in the wilderness in New Zealand. I stayed in a warden's hut two-and-a-half hours off the Routeburn Track through the fjords on the South Island. It was early winter, so there was no electricity or running water. #Quote by Jane Campion
New Zealand quotes by Kate Lattey
#187. The fleabitten grey mare's short legs are slightly over at the knee, she has a Roman nose and a neck of solid muscle well-practiced at pulling her rider out of the saddle. Her head is up and a layer of sweat darkens her pale shoulders, but Alec's holding his reins tight and he's maintaining control. All the riders who have gone before on beautifully turned out, well-schooled ponies were merely passengers as their ponies jumped. Alec has harnessed the raw talent of his mare, her power barely held in check as the bell rings and he canters her around towards the first jump. Jess strains against the martingale as she charges towards the first fence and with one strong push off her hocks, flies over the jump with her knees tucked into her chest. #Quote by Kate Lattey
New Zealand quotes by Peter Jackson
#188. My dad always told me that the principal reason he chose New Zealand to emigrate to after World War II was the high regard his father had for the Kiwis he encountered at Gallipoli. #Quote by Peter Jackson

New Zealand quotes by Paul J. H. Schoemaker
#191. To indicate how large a part of the Earth is covered by the oceans, we might call attention to the fact that a whole hemisphere, with its center near New Zealand, would have only one-tenth of its area as dry land! And the average depth of the seas is over two miles. #Quote by Paul J. H. Schoemaker

New Zealand quotes by Howard Zinn
#196. People of the United States have to really consider whether they want to be an empire. Sweden is not worried about terrorism. New Zealand is not worried about terrorism. Holland is not worried about terrorism. Why not be a modest little country without all of these enormous ambitions? #Quote by Howard Zinn
New Zealand quotes by Charles Darwin
#197. Not one great country can be named, from the polar regions in the north to New Zealand in the south, in which the aborigines do not tattoo themselves. #Quote by Charles Darwin
New Zealand quotes by Mary Roach
#198. People can't anticipate how much they'll miss the natural world until they are deprived of it. I have read about submarine crewmen who haunt the sonar room, listening to whale songs and colonies of snapping shrimp. Submarine captains dispense 'periscope liberty'- a chance to gaze at clouds and birds and coastlines and remind themselves that the natural world still exists. I once met a man who told me that after landing in Christchurch, New Zealand, after a winter at the South Pole research station, he and his companions spent a couple days just wandering around staring in awe at flowers and trees. At one point, one of them spotted a woman pushing a stroller. 'A baby!' he shouted, and they all rushed across the street to see. The woman turned the stroller and ran. #Quote by Mary Roach
New Zealand quotes by Peter Hambleton
#199. I'm a New Zealand actor, and I really want to be doing our stuff here, and our stuff includes plays from overseas. In terms of survival, maybe I should have taken a shot elsewhere at some point, but it gets back to the same theme - we should have our own people telling our own stories. #Quote by Peter Hambleton
New Zealand quotes by Natasha Bedingfield
#200. My family comes from New Zealand, but I'm a London girl. I was born and raised in London, but I've got the blood of a New Zealander, so I always kind of felt like I didn't belong - in a good way. #Quote by Natasha Bedingfield
New Zealand quotes by Barack Obama
#201. Iran was nearing completion of a new reactor capable of producing plutonium for a bomb. #Quote by Barack Obama
New Zealand quotes by Charles Krauthammer
#202. When a party is in opposition, it opposes. That's its job. But when it comes to power, it must govern. Easy rhetoric is over, the press of reality becomes irresistible. By necessity, it adopts some of the policies it had once denounced. And a new national consensus is born. #Quote by Charles Krauthammer
New Zealand quotes by Baltasar Gracian
#203. Fortunate people often have very favorable beginnings and very tragic endings. What matters isn't being applauded when you arrive - for that is common - but being missed when you leave. #Quote by Baltasar Gracian
New Zealand quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#204. In a subway car, my skin would typically fall in the middle of the color spectrum. On street corners, tourists would ask me for directions. I was, in four and a half years, never an American; I was immediately a New Yorker. #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
New Zealand quotes by Bobby Fischer
#205. I love chess, and I didnt invent Fischerandom chess to destroy chess. I invented Fischerandom chess to keep chess going. Because I consider the old chess is dying, or really its dead. A lot of people have come up with other rules of chess-type games, with 10x8 boards, new pieces, and all kinds of things. Im really not interested in that. I want to keep the old chess flavour. I want to keep the old chess game. But just making a change so the starting positions are mixed, so its not degenerated down to memorisation and prearrangement like it is today. #Quote by Bobby Fischer
New Zealand quotes by Ted Cruz
#206. Donald Trump claims - he did interview after the debate where he said, well, gosh, you can't find Americans to do these jobs to be waiters or waitresses or bellhops.What ridiculous nonsense. "The New York Times" reported roughly 300 Americans applied for those jobs. He only hired 17. Instead, he brought in foreign workers, because they're captive workers, because you can pay them less because they can't leave. #Quote by Ted Cruz
New Zealand quotes by Bill Gates
#207. At every juncture, advanced tools have been the key to a new wave of applications, and each wave of applications has been key to driving computing to the next level. #Quote by Bill Gates
New Zealand quotes by Shari Arison
#208. I have recently been able to see the new world - the quiet, the tranquility and the freedom it will bring with it. This is very comforting knowledge for me because I already know that what I envision eventually becomes a reality. #Quote by Shari Arison
New Zealand quotes by Stacy Schiff
#209. I once interviewed David Herbert Donald, the Lincoln historian, and we talked about how one deals with the secondary sources and the previous biographies. He said something which kept coming back to me as I worked on Cleopatra, which was: 'There's no further new material; there are only new questions.' #Quote by Stacy Schiff
New Zealand quotes by Martin Amis
#210. Standing in the nordic nook of the kitchen, I can gaze down at the flimsy-limbed joggers heading south towards the Park. It's nearly as bad as New York. Some of these gasping fatsos, these too-little-too-late artists, they look as though they're running up rising ground, climbing ground. My generation, we started all this. Before, everyone was presumably content to feel like death the whole time. Now they want to feel terrific for ever. #Quote by Martin Amis
New Zealand quotes by Douglas Rushkoff
#211. The 'looking forward' so prevalent in the late 1990s was bound to end once the new millennium began. Like some others of that era, I predicted a new focus on the moment, on real experience, and on what things are actually worth right now. Then 9/11 magnified this sensibility, forcing America as a nation to contend with its own impermanence. #Quote by Douglas Rushkoff
New Zealand quotes by Valerie Jarrett
#212. A new era of responsibility is here. #Quote by Valerie Jarrett
New Zealand quotes by Kerry Cue
#213. Seeing a tree in an acorn and a house in a plank of wood is hope bringing a new tomorrow. #Quote by Kerry Cue
New Zealand quotes by Erin Hanson
#214. Life is unpredictable,
It changes with the seasons,
Even your coldest winter
Happens for the best of reasons,
And though it feels eternal,
Like all you'll ever do is freeze,
I promise spring is coming,
And with it, brand new leaves #Quote by Erin Hanson
New Zealand quotes by Henry Miller
#215. The act of dreaming, like a draught of fresh air in an abandoned house, situates the furniture of the mind in a new ambiance. #Quote by Henry Miller
New Zealand quotes by E.L. James
#216. The time has flown by in a haze of new faces, work to do, and Mr. Jack Hyde. Mr. Jack Hyde ... #Quote by E.L. James
New Zealand quotes by Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum
#217. Life is an extraordinary gift some people appear not to appreciate. In every breath and scent, every touch and sight we are gifted by new experience and the chance to feel the richness of experience. Every sound we hear, from the song of a bird to the harshness of an angry voice, is a miracle. #Quote by Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum
New Zealand quotes by Edmund Waller
#218. Poets may boast (as safely-vain) Their work shall with the world remain: Both bound together, live, or die, The verses and the prophecy. But who can hope his lines shou'd long Last, in a daily changing tongue? While they are new, envy prevails, And as that dies, our language fails. #Quote by Edmund Waller
New Zealand quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#219. Once upon a time we all walked on the golden road. It was a fair highway, through the Land of Lost Delight; shadow and sunshine were blessedly mingled, and every turn and dip revealed a fresh charm and a new loveliness to eager hearts and unspoiled eyes.

On that road we heard the song of morning stars; we drank in fragrances aerial and sweet as a May mist; we were rich in gossamer fancies and iris hopes; our hearts sought and found the boon of dreams; the years waited beyond and they were very fair; life was a rose-lipped comrade with purple flowers dripping from her fingers.

We may long have left the golden road behind, but its memories are the dearest of our eternal possessions; and those who cherish them as such may haply find a pleasure in the pages of this book, whose people are pilgrims on the golden road of youth. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
New Zealand quotes by Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali
#220. Another sign of the learned man of the hereafter is that he keeps himself distant from the ruling authorities and avoids their company, because this world is sweet, ever-new and its bridle is in their hands. He who comes near them is not free from their pleasures and harms. They are mostly unjust and do not obey the advices of the learned men. The learned man who frequents them will look to their grandeurs and then think God's gift upon him as insignificant. To keep company with the rulers is the key to evils. #Quote by Abu Hamid Al-Ghazali
New Zealand quotes by Edmund Wilson
#221. The product of the scientific imagination is a new vision of relations - like that of artistic imagination. #Quote by Edmund Wilson
New Zealand quotes by C.S. Lewis
#222. The Old Testament contains fabulous elements. The New Testament consists mostly of teaching, not of narrative at all: but where it is narrative, it is, in my opinion, historical. As to the fabulous element in the Old Testament, I very much doubt if you would be wise to chuck it out. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
New Zealand quotes by Z'EV
#223. I started working with synthesizer players, and I had to find new instruments. I needed a more complex sound, so I went to a surplus place and got a bunch of hard plastic stuff and stainless steel stuff, and that stuff worked. So from that point on, from the 70s on, I've made instruments. #Quote by Z'EV
New Zealand quotes by Robert Penn Warren
#224. (There is always another country and always another place.
There is always another name and another face.
And the name and the face are you, and you
The name and the face, and the stream you gaze into
Will show the adoring face, show the lips that lift to you
As you lean with the implacable thirst of self,
As you lean to the image which is yourself,
To set the lip to lip, fix eye on bulging eye,
To drink not of the stream but of your deep identity,
But water is water and it flows,
Under the image on the water the water coils and goes
And its own beginning and its end only the water knows.

There are many countries and the rivers in them
-Cumberland, Tennessee, Ohio, Colorado, Pecos, Little Big Horn,
And Roll, Missouri, roll.
But there is only water in them.

And in the new country and in the new, place
The eyes of the new friend will reflect the new face
And his mouth will speak to frame
The syllables of the new name
And the name is you and is the agitation of the air
And is the wind and the wind runs and the wind is everywhere.

The name and the face are you.
And they are you.
Are new.

For they have been dipped in the healing flood.
For they have been dipped in the redeeming blood.
For they have been dipped in Time
And Time is only beginnings
Time is only and always beginnings
And is the redemption of our c #Quote by Robert Penn Warren

#225. You're our new Paladin," she said... We were going to be fine.
"Well." Saylor rose to her feet. "We are totally effed. #Quote by Rachel Hawkins

New Zealand quotes by Cody R. Simpson
#227. It was cool to see a bunch of new fans out there. #Quote by Cody R. Simpson
New Zealand quotes by Carlos Fuentes
#228. There is no creation without tradition; the 'new' is an inflection on a preceding form; novelty is always a variation on the past. #Quote by Carlos Fuentes
New Zealand quotes by Eric Hoffer
#229. It is futile to judge the viability of a new movement by the truth of its doctrine and the feasibility of its promises. What has to be judged is its corporate organization for quick and total absorption of the frustrated. Where new creeds vie with each other for the allegiance of the populace, the one which comes with the most perfected collective framework wins. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
New Zealand quotes by Shawn Kirsten Maravel
#230. Maintaining a safe distance, she practiced extreme caution as they headed further and further away from the center of the city. She tried to act casual when passing people on the street while simultaneously keeping an eye on the elusive John Smith. That part wasn't hard of course because most of the people headed in their direction moved submissively to the other side as her mysterious new neighbor passed. Choking down a feeling of dread, she wondered if she'd be smart to do the same and head back to the apartment. Against her better judgment, Evangeline pushed on. #Quote by Shawn Kirsten Maravel
New Zealand quotes by Martin Millar
#231. Hello," said Brannoc politely, despite his terrible hangover.
"What the hell are you?" demanded the squirrel.
"We are fairies," answered Brannoc, and the squirrel fell on the grass laughing, because New York squirrels are cynical creatures and do not believe in fairies. #Quote by Martin Millar
New Zealand quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#232. I notice I may have somehow mixed up two events, my visit with Rita to Briceland on our way to Cantrip, and our passing through Briceland again on our way back to New York, but such suffusions of swimming colors are not to be disdained by the artist in recollection. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
New Zealand quotes by Disobedience Is A Virtue On Goliarda Sapienza S The Art Of Joy The New Yorker
#233. All of the fucking in "The Art of Joy" could put it in a class with "Story of O" or "The Sexual Life of Catherine M." But Sapienza's novel is about sex only insofar as an account of a woman's artistic, intellectual, and political maturation must include her sexual career. Or, better, the discovery of pleasure initiates Modesta's appetite more generally - for knowledge, for experience, for autonomy. It turns her outward, toward nonsexual things, by inwardly sustaining her. Her childish sadism is less sexual than it is basically libidinal: her erotic interest in her sister's or St. Agatha's pain, or the way in which her hatred of Leonora transmutes into arousal - these are signs of an exultant urge to live. "The real way of living is to answer to one's wants," D. H. Lawrence says in a letter (written, incidentally, from Italy). "I want that liberty, I want that woman, I want that pound of peaches, I want to go to sleep, I want to go to the pub and have a good time, I want to look abeastly swell today, I want to kiss that girl, I want to insult that man. #Quote by Disobedience Is A Virtue On Goliarda Sapienza S The Art Of Joy The New Yorker
New Zealand quotes by Viera Scheibner
#234. Polio has not been eradicated by vaccination, it is lurking behind a redefinition and new diagnostic names like viral or aseptic meningitis ... According to one of the 1997 issues of the MMWR, there are some 30,000 to 50,000 cases of viral meningitis per year in the United States alone. That's where all those 30,000 - 50,000 cases of polio disappeared after the introduction of mass vaccination #Quote by Viera Scheibner
New Zealand quotes by Patrick Bergin
#235. We did a campaign here with New York Times. We had a great ad: "Today in America, someone will kill an elephant for a bracelet." We became sensitized in our society. Now there are four or five billion people in Asia who need to get this message. We need to use social media, print magazines, celebrities - anything we can to share this message. It's not cool, it's not okay. You are destroying beautiful animals. You are robbing a continent of its wealth. And you are hurting a lot of innocent people. #Quote by Patrick Bergin
New Zealand quotes by C.S. Pacat
#236. Talik said, 'His contract with Lord Berenger ends soon. Ancel will seek a new contract, a high bidder. He wants money, status. He is foolish. Lord Berenger may offer less money, but he is kind, and never puts pets in the ring. Ancel has made many enemies. In the ring, someone will scratch his green eyes out, an "accident."'
Damen was drawn in against his will. 'That's why he's chasing royal attention? He wants the Prince to

offer for his contract?'
'The Prince?' said Talik, scornfully. 'Everyone knows the Prince does not keep pets.'
'None at all?' said Damen.
She said, 'You.' She looked him up and down. 'Perhaps the Prince has a taste for men, not these painted Veretian boys who squeal if you pinch them.' Her tone suggested that she approved of this on general principle. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
New Zealand quotes by David C. Cassidy
#237. Relativity was a highly technical new theory that gave new meanings to familiar concepts and even to the nature of the theory itself. The general public looked upon relativity as indicative of the seemingly incomprehensible modern era, educated scientists despaired of ever understanding what Einstein had done, and political ideologues used the new theory to exploit public fears and anxieties-all of which opened a rift between science and the broader culture that continues to expand today. #Quote by David C. Cassidy
New Zealand quotes by Martha Beck
#238. As much horror as we have always created, we are a species that keeps moving forward, seeing new sights in new ways, and enjoying the journey. #Quote by Martha Beck
New Zealand quotes by Ani DiFranco
#239. People talk about my image like I come in two dimensions, like lipstick is a sign of my declining mind, like what I happen to be wearing the day that someone takes my picture is my new statement for all womankind. #Quote by Ani DiFranco
New Zealand quotes by Doreen Virtue
#240. At first, like a lot of trauma survivors, I was impatient and wanted immediate results. Once I caught myself in this behavior, I realized that it takes consistent commitment to heal patterns. After three or four months, I noticed a huge positive shift within myself. I felt a new level of happiness and contentment that I hadn't even known existed. I finally understood how my old trauma patterns had attracted drama in my present life. once I saw this dynamic, I made a conscious decision to "Drama Detox," and the patterns faded away. #Quote by Doreen Virtue
New Zealand quotes by Charles Koch
#241. The only way you improve is to try new things. #Quote by Charles Koch

#242. The willingness to learn new skills is very high. #Quote by Angela Merkel
New Zealand quotes by Kiersten White
#243. I changed because of you. I could feel you, worming your way into my heart and soul, shifting things. You've no idea how aggravating it is to have to adapt to new feelings and thoughts. #Quote by Kiersten White
New Zealand quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#244. I walk a lot in New York, not for the exercise but to get from place to place, and because it's the way of having the least contact with human beings. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
