Places quotes by Washington Irving
#1. How we delight to build our recollections upon some basis of reality,
a place, a country, a local habitation! how the events of life, as we look back upon them, have grown into the well-remembered background of the places where they fell upon us! Here is some sunny garden or summer lane, beautified and canonized forever, with the flood of a great joy; and here are dim and silent places,
rooms always shadowed and dark to us, whatever they may be to others,
where distress or death came once, and since then dwells forevermore. #Quote by Washington Irving
Places quotes by Mitchell Ivers
#2. We all know what good writing is: It's the novel we can't put down, the poem we never forget, the speech that changes the way we look at the world. It's the article that tells us when, where, and how, the essay that clarifies what was hazy before. Good writing is the memo that gets action, the letter that says what a phone call can't. It's the movie that makes us cry, the TV show that makes us laugh, the lyrics to the song we can't stop singing, the advertisement that makes us buy. Good writing can take form in prose or poetry, fiction or nonfiction. It can be formal or informal, literary or colloquial. The rules and tools for achieving each are different, but one difficult-to-define quality runs through them all: style. "Effectiveness of assertion" was George Bernard Shaw's definition of style. "Proper words in proper places" was Jonathan Swift's. You #Quote by Mitchell Ivers
Places quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#3. Benedict sets up a community, a family. And families, the honest among us will admit, are risky places to be if perfection is what y ou are expecting in life. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Places quotes by Tracy Chevalier
#4. What's funny about opposites be that wet and dry both has water, boy and girl be about people, Heaven and Hell be the places you go when you die. They all has something in common. So they an't completely different from each other the way people think. Having the one don't mean t'other be gone. #Quote by Tracy Chevalier
Places quotes by Mohsen Makhmalbaf
#5. In many ways, it is very real, because I sat there for 9 days, and it was constantly happening, and that was the 9 days of making the film. But you can't say that it's 100% true, because there are places where I've been intrusive and interfered. #Quote by Mohsen Makhmalbaf
Places quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#6. In a dream I walked with God through the deep places of creation; past walls that receded and gates that opened through hall after hall of silence, darkness and refreshment
the dwelling place of souls acquainted with light and warmth
until, around me, was an infinity into which we all flowed together and lived anew, like the rings made by raindrops falling upon wide expanses of calm dark waters. #Quote by Dag Hammarskjold
Places quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#7. But she loves her daughter, David can tell, loves her the way David's mother loved him, and sometimes David feels that same love he used to, except now it's coming from other places, other people, and it's a good thing the love is coming because he's beginning to think there aren't enough rules in the universe to bring his mother back. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Places quotes by Wendell Berry
#8. To husband is to use with care, to keep, to save, to make last, to conserve. Old usage tells us that there is a husbandry also of the land, of the soil, of the domestic plants and animals - obviously because of the importance of these things to the household. And there have been times, one of which is now, when some people have tried to practice a proper human husbandry of the nondomestic creatures in recognition of the dependence of our households and domestic life upon the wild world. Husbandry is the name of all practices that sustain life by connecting us conservingly to our places and our world; it is the art of keeping tied all the strands in the living network that sustains us.
And so it appears that most and perhaps all of industrial agriculture's manifest failures are the result of an attempt to make the land produce without husbandry. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Places quotes by Scott Sauls
#9. Are we less concerned about defending our rights - for Jesus laid down his rights - and more concerned about joining Jesus in his mission of loving people, places, and things to life? #Quote by Scott Sauls
Places quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#10. I don't know,' said Frodo. 'It came to me then, as if I was making it up; but I may have heard it long ago. Certainly it reminds me very much of Bilbo in the last years, before he went away. He used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. "It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to. Do you realize that this is the very path that goes through Mirkwood, and that if you let it, it might take you to the Lonely Mountain or even further and to worse places?" He used to say that on the path outside the front door at Bag End, especially after he had been out for a long walk. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Places quotes by Wendell Berry
#11. True solitude is found in the wild places, where one is without human obligation. One's inner voices become audible ... In consequence, one responds more clearly to other lives. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Places quotes by Cassandra Clare
#12. The letters were worn by time and Zachariah's own flesh, but they had been struck deep into the wood in the precise places where Zachariah would put his hands on them when they fought. So, in a way, they would always be fighting together.
The letters were W and H. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Places quotes by Charles Dickens
#13. Keeping all things in their places. Everybody was dressed for a Fancy Ball that was never to leave off. From the Palace of the Tuileries, through Monseigneur and the whole Court, through the Chambers, the Tribunals of Justice, and all society (except the scarecrows), #Quote by Charles Dickens
Places quotes by Liya Kebede
#14. When a woman has her first child in places like Africa, they're really young. They can be 12, 13,14, so their frames are really small, and they're usually malnourished. #Quote by Liya Kebede
Places quotes by T. Scott McLeod
#15. You had to break, to be unbroken. In the brokenness, I had found, that which was unbroken. That which was perfect, and beautiful, and complete. #Quote by T. Scott McLeod
Places quotes by Frederick Lenz
#16. Humility accepts that God places us in the right place at every single moment, not a moment to soon and not a moment too late. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Places quotes by Vicki Donlan
#17. The best motivation for anyone-including employees-is to hear or see our name as often and in as many places as possible. Our name is the most potent sound we can hear and see. If you want to motivate someone put their name up in lights and/or sing it from the rooftops! #Quote by Vicki Donlan
Places quotes by Harry Bernstein
#18. There aren't many clean places left in this dirty world of ours. #Quote by Harry Bernstein
Places quotes by Alana Massey
#19. They know too well the violent hypnosis of those who hope to possess them-- men who can smell the blood on the places where a woman is breaking. #Quote by Alana Massey
Places quotes by Heber C. Kimball
#20. Let me say to you, that many of you will see the time when you will have all the trouble, trial and persecution that you can stand, and plenty of opportunities to show that you are true to God and his work. This Church has before it many close places through which it will have to pass before the work of God is crowned with victory. The time will come when no man nor woman will be able to endure on borrowed light. Each will have to be guided by the light within himself. If you do not have it, how can you stand? #Quote by Heber C. Kimball
Places quotes by Deborah Wells
#21. The dark man is ubiquitous. People from all times and in all places have recorded their experiences of him in stories, poems, paintings, songs, stone, dance, crafts and prayers. Saint or sinner, scientist or theologian, agnostic or true believer, it makes little difference as the dark man has walked beside us since the very beginning and he will stay with us until the end. He is so intrinsic to the human experience that everyone has at least one dark man story to tell... #Quote by Deborah Wells
Places quotes by Jaci Burton
#22. For those who have found love in the strangest places, in people who are polar opposites in terms of profession and interests, and believe that happily ever after comes from finding common ground. #Quote by Jaci Burton
Places quotes by Jennifer Niven
#23. Here's what I think: I think I've got a map in my car that wants to be used, and I think there are places we can go that need to be seen. Maybe no one else will ever visit them and appreciate them or take the time to think they're important, but maybe even the smallest places mean something. And, if not, maybe they can mean something to us. At the very least, by the time we leave, we know we will have seen it. So come on. Let's go. Let's count for something. #Quote by Jennifer Niven
Places quotes by Bill Hicks
#24. That's starting to depress me about UFOs. The fact that they cross galaxies ... and always end up in places like Fyfe, Alabama. #Quote by Bill Hicks
Places quotes by Veronica Roth
#25. I look around. We are inside the incinerator, which would be completely dark if not for the lines of light glowing in the shape of a small door on the other side. The floor is solid metal in some places and metal grating in others. Everything smells like rotting garbage and fire.
'Don't say I never took you anywhere nice,' Peter says. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Places quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley
#26. The nations of the earth through the centuries of time have waged war to gain territory. I think ours is the only nation on the face of the earth which has not claimed territory gained out of conflict.

I have stood in the American Military Cemetery in Suresnes, France, where are buried some who died in the First World War. Among those was my eldest brother. It is a quiet and hallowed place, a remembrance of great sacrifice 'to make the world safe for democracy.' No territory was claimed by America as recompense for the sacrifices of those buried there.

I have stood in reverence in the beautiful American military cemetery on the outskirts of Manila in the Philippines. There marble crosses and the Star of David stand in perfect symmetry marking the burial places of some 17,000 Americans who lost their lives in the Second World War. Surrounding that sacred ground are marble colonnades on which are incised the names of another 35,000 who were lost in the battles of the Pacific during that terrible conflict. After so great a sacrifice there was victory, but there was never a claim for territory except for some small islands over which we have had guardianship.

I have been up and down South Korea from the 38th parallel in the North to Pusan in the South, and I have seen the ridges and the valleys where Americans fought and died, not to save their own land but to preserve freedom for people who were strangers to them but whom they acknowledged to be #Quote by Gordon B. Hinckley
Places quotes by Andrzej Stasiuk
#27. I lack the imagination. For that reason I have to pack, stuff into my pockets odds and ends, passport, money, and go see what it's really like. Whenever the time of year or the weather changes, I have to pack up whatever I can't do without and visit all those places I've been before, to make sure they still exist #Quote by Andrzej Stasiuk
Places quotes by John Cheever
#28. They were delivered to mansions remodeled into country clubs, boarding schools, retreats for the insane, alcohol cures, health farms, wildlife sanctuaries, wallpaper factories, drafting rooms and places where the aged and the infirm waited sniffily for the angel of death in front of their television sets. #Quote by John Cheever
Places quotes by Alicia A. Willis
#29. No." John Newton's eyes warmed. "One has no guarantee that the path the Lords places us on will be the easy one, Elizabeth. Obedience to His will is a glorious thing, but, aye, it has many challenges. Yet," and he smiled fully, "in the end, no one can doubt that it is the best way. #Quote by Alicia A. Willis
Places quotes by Glen David Gold
#30. Each piece of the set was on a winch and pulley, bag-dropped, counterbalanced by nests of fifty-pound bags of sand. The setup was called a "Fairbanks," for the reason that when a stagehand so wanted, he could stand upon a knot on the rope, untie as few or as many bags of sand as he wanted, and ride nearly to the rafters like Zorro as the scenery lowered.
There was no particular reason to ride that way, but because Carter allowed it, the team of men did so all night long, trading places at the top, jumping onto the ropes and riding back down later. With the mighty Egyptian set descending in its many pieces, the audience was deprived of a behind-the-scenes tableau of beauty: Carter's team swiftly riding ropes up to the catwalk and down to the stage again, simply because they could. #Quote by Glen David Gold
Places quotes by Rachel Kapelke-Dale
#31. I think no matter where you go, you'll be happy as long as you know why you're there. #Quote by Rachel Kapelke-Dale
Places quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#32. We each have our hiding places and we each put up with the little quirks of the people we love. #Quote by Cecelia Ahern
Places quotes by Michael Short
#33. Perhaps the most reliable route to meaning and joy, to plunging below the surface and seeking more than the superficiality of material ambition, is connection with people, places, ideas and issues. Of these, the most important are people and relationships. And the most reliable route to relationships is conversation. #Quote by Michael Short
Places quotes by Guy Laliberte
#34. My first dream was to travel. I was attracted to different places, different colors of skin, different food. When I was 18 in 1977, I went to Europe with my accordion and discovered the pleasure of entertaining people. #Quote by Guy Laliberte
Places quotes by S.M. Stryker
#35. Have I told you today how beautiful you are?" I stand there, taken by surprise at his words. I am speechless so I mutely shake my head. He places his hands at my jaw line while he slowly runs his thumbs over my cheekbones. Then he looks into my eyes and says, "You are the most beautiful thing I keep in my heart.

~Ian #Quote by S.M. Stryker
Places quotes by Harold J. Duarte-Bernhardt
#36. We are all broken and wounded in this world. Some choose to grow strong at the broken places. #Quote by Harold J. Duarte-Bernhardt
Places quotes by Judy Blunt
#37. I came to recognize the landscape of my life in the lives of many women. Their stories and the places they spoke of spanned a world beyond my experience, from mill towns to suburbs, from logging camps to ethnic neighborhoods, from inner cities to Indian reservations. Few shared my place of origin or the events of my life, but many, it seems, shared my experience. Listening to their stories, I came to understand how women can be isolated by circumstances as well as by distance, and how our experiences, though geographically distinct, often translated into the same feelings. Away from the physical presence of my past, I found it easy to argue that what mattered most was the story, the truth of what we tell ourselves, the versions we pass along to our daughters. But as I stood in the living room of my rock house that afternoon, I was again reminded of the enormous power of this prairie, its silence and the whisper I made inside it. I had forgotten how easily one person can be lost here. #Quote by Judy Blunt
Places quotes by A.R. Rahman
#38. My list would be Russia, Morocco, Turkey, and South Africa I'm doing which is somewhere I've wanted to go, Australia, Japan maybe, and China, if I have the energy to go and play at all those places. #Quote by A.R. Rahman
Places quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#39. The lesson of the Impressionists is that there are times and places where it is better to be a Big Fish in a Little Pond than a Little Fish in a Big Pond, where the apparent disadvantage of being an outsider in a marginal world turns out not to be a disadvantage at all. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Places quotes by George R R Martin
#40. Books should broaden us, take us to places we have never been and show us things we've never seen, expand our horizons and our way of looking at the world. Limiting your reading to a single genre defeats that. It limits us, makes us smaller. It seemed to me, then as now, that there were good stories and bad stories, and that was the only distinction that truly mattered. #Quote by George R R Martin
Places quotes by Michael G. Williams
#41. Driving through them, most places look about the same as most others. Walking around is how you get the sense of a place's character. Walking keeps you slow enough to notice the little things. #Quote by Michael G. Williams
Places quotes by Robert Fulghum
#42. It's just this: that there are places we all come from-deep-rooty-common places- that makes us who we are. And we disdain them or treat them lightly at our peril. We turn our backs on them at the risk of self-contempt. There is a sense in which we need to go home again-and can go home again. Not to recover home, no. But to sanctify memory. #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Places quotes by Sandra Rogers
#43. The myth that morality and fidelity are old-fashioned and trite can imprison more than just one individual as generations are affected by the choices perpetuated by this lie. The myth that withholding judgment or having charity means that all values are relative and should be given equal importance or loyalty creates a heavy chain that eventually traps a person in doubt and disaffection, leaving him or her to be constantly "driven with the wind and tossed" (see James 1:6). However, confidence that Christ honors those who honor him (see 1 Samuel 2:30) provides an anchor to our souls (see Ether 12:4) whereby we are capable of giving affirmative answers to those who question the "reason of the hope that is in [us]" (1 Peter 3:15). I remember one of my saddest moments as a faculty member at BYU. One of my students came to me in emotional tatters. She had come to BYU looking for a supportive community that shared her values, something she had not enjoyed being the only Mormon in her high school. Instead her peers at BYU teased, sneered at, and demeaned her because she was not willing to watch an R-rated movie. How proud I was of her! Despite the hurt of rejection "by her own," her faith carried her through the social prison created by her peers. To "stand in holy places, and be not moved" (D&C 87:8) in today's world requires faith, courage, poise, and patience. #Quote by Sandra Rogers
Places quotes by Chelsea Kane
#44. My favorite place in the world is this store called My Sister's Closet in Arizona and it's the greatest secondhand shop in the world. #Quote by Chelsea Kane
Places quotes by David McCullough
#45. Let us have gardens, then, and other public places where we may see our friends, and parade our vanities, if you will, before the eyes of the world. Did you ever know anyone who was not delighted with a garden? - John Sanderson #Quote by David McCullough
Places quotes by Caitlin R. Kiernan
#46. That would be showing him a part of her soul, a part of her mind, that she's never risked showing anyone. The raw and squirming part that indifferent high-school counselor were always prying at, the part therapists tried to trick her into showing them for free, the part her parents hated her for. The light and the darkness behind her eyes. The soft places. #Quote by Caitlin R. Kiernan
Places quotes by Ken Jennings
#47. You live overseas, you see these exotic places and you want to know about them. But, weirdly, it also made me homesick for all these very prosaic places in America. #Quote by Ken Jennings
Places quotes by Molly Friedenfeld
#48. Golden Rule Living is the great simplifier. It places us in another soul's shoes, taking what can appear to be a com- plex decision that involves another and streamlining it to a one-step process of deciding, If I wouldn't like this done to me, then I shall not do it to another. #Quote by Molly Friedenfeld
Places quotes by Neil Gaiman
#49. Doing fine, thank you, I would say, never knowing how to talk about what I do. If I could talk about it, I would not have to do it. I make art, sometimes I make true art, and sometimes it fills the empty places in my heart. Some of them. Not all. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Places quotes by Gloria Steinem
#50. The road itself is informative, because it forces you to respond spontaneously and to encounter the unexpected. It forces you to reassess what you felt about people or issues or places, and it forces you to live in the present. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Places quotes by Nnedi Okorafor
#51. Adaora was beginning to see why Ayodele's people had chosen the city of Lagos. If they'd landed in New York, Tokyo or London, the governments of these places would have quickly swooped to hide, isolate and study the aliens. Here in Lagos, there was no such order. #Quote by Nnedi Okorafor
Places quotes by George W. Bush
#52. I pray daily, and I pray in all kinds of places. I mean, I pray in bed, I pray in the Oval Office. I pray a lot. And just different as the spirit moves me. And faith is an integral part of my life. #Quote by George W. Bush
Places quotes by Richard Rogers
#53. You know, the environment is fragmenting, and the environment is, in many places, absolutely hideous! #Quote by Richard Rogers
Places quotes by Jhumpa Lahiri
#54. With the birth of Akash, in his sudden, perfect presence, Ruma had felt awe for the first time in her life. He still had the power to stagger her at times
simply the fact that he was breathing, that all his organs were in their proper places, that blood flowed quietly and effectively through his small, sturdy limbs. He was her flesh and blood, her mother had told her in the hospital the day Akash was born. Only the words her mother used were more literal, enriching the tired phrase with meaning: "He is made from your meat and bone." It had caused Ruma to acknowledge the supernatural in everyday life. But death, too, had the power to awe, she knew this now-that a human being could be alive for years and years, thinking and breathing and eating, full of a million worries and feelings and thoughts, taking up space in the world, and then, in an instant, become absent, invisible. #Quote by Jhumpa Lahiri
Places quotes by Alena Graedon
#55. Words, then, are born of worlds. But they also take us places we can't go: Constantinople and Mars, Valhalla, the Planet of the Apes. Language comes from what we've seen, touched, loved, lost. And it uses knowable things to give us glimpses of what's not. The Word, after all, is God. #Quote by Alena Graedon
Places quotes by Jarod Kintz
#56. I like to call in sick to work at places where I've never held a job. Then when the manager tells me I don't work there, I tell them I'd like to. But not today, as I'm sick. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Places quotes by Plutarch
#57. But if any man undertake to write a history, that has to be collected from materials gathered by observation and the reading of works not easy to be got in all places, nor written always in his own language, but many of them foreign and dispersed in other hands, for him, undoubtedly, it is in the first place and above all things most necessary, to reside in some city of good note, addicted to liberal arts, and populous; where he may have plenty of all sorts of books, and upon inquiry may hear and inform himself of such particulars as, having escaped the pens of writers, are more faithfully preserved in the memories of men, lest his work be deficient in many things, even those which it can least dispense with. #Quote by Plutarch
Places quotes by Harper Sloan
#58. After making sure I have everything, I waddle over to the sidewalk, my flip-flops slapping loudly against the pavement. Seeing Sway in the window has me lifting my arm and waving wildly. The second I go to put my arm down, I feel this tremendous pain in my stomach. Sway cocks his head at me, clearly puzzled with my actions. I look down from his eyes and try to figure out what just happened.

Sway bursts through the door to his salon about the same time that I realize that my water just broke. Of all places to have my water break, it's the damn golden sidewalk. I love this sidewalk. Now all I'm going to think about is my pregnancy water leaking out of my vagina.

"Sway! My vagina broke the happiness!" I cry when he runs over. He grabs the food and my purse before helping me walk the few steps left to take me inside Corps Security. "Sway!" I pant. "Are you listening to me? My vagina broke it! #Quote by Harper Sloan
Places quotes by Liz Prince
#59. Could my problem have been that I was looking for validation in the wrong places all along? #Quote by Liz Prince
Places quotes by David Benatar
#60. It is not the case that one can create new people on the assumption that if they are not pleased to have come into existence they can simply kill themselves. Once somebody has come into existence and attachments with that person have been formed, suicide can cause the kind of pain that makes the pain of childlessness mild by comparison. Somebody contemplating suicide knows (or should know) this. This places an important obstacle in the way of suicide. One's life may be bad, but one must consider what affect ending it would have on one's family and friends. There will be times when life has become so bad that it is unreasonable for the interests of the loved ones in having the person alive to outweigh that person's interests in ceasing to exist. When this is true will depend in part on particular features of the person for whom continued life is a burden. Different people are able to bear different magnitudes of burden. It may even be indecent for family members to expect that person to continue living. On other occasions one's life may be bad but not so bad as to warrant killing oneself and thereby making the lives of one's family and friends still much worse than they already are. #Quote by David Benatar
Places quotes by Richard Rogers
#61. It is my belief that exciting things happen when a variety of overlapping activities designed for all people-the old and the young, the blue and white collar, the local inhabitant and the visitor, different activities for different occasions-meet in a flexible environment, opening up the possibility of interaction outside the confines of institutional limits. When this takes place, deprived areas welcome dynamic places for those who live, work and visit; places where all can participate, rather than less or more beautiful ghettos. #Quote by Richard Rogers
Places quotes by Fyodor Dostoevsky
#62. Every man needs a place to go to. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Places quotes by Fanny Fern
#63. It is the most astonishing thing that persons who have not sufficient education to spell correctly, to punctuate properly, to place capital letters in the right places, should, when other means of support fail, send mss. for publication. #Quote by Fanny Fern
Places quotes by Jacques Tardi
#64. The leave zipped right by. We were so terrifically glad to be back to our own little section of the trench, with all its happy memories, that we wouldn't have traded places with anybody.

The lazy bastard who'd filled in while we were away hadn't managed to nibble away so much as an inch of garden soil in the direction of Berlin.

We found out that Brugnon hadn't come back from leave. He'd hanged himself in the stairwell of his building, on rue des Gâtines. He left a note to say he couldn't take it any more and asked us to count him out. We accepted it… Who were we to judge? #Quote by Jacques Tardi
Places quotes by Vera-Ellen
#65. I was called a bookish child. Mother sent me to a ballet teacher in Cincinnati when I was nine years old. I guess I was an awkward child and the family wanted me to be graceful. When I found out I liked to dance and people seemed to like to watch me, I was determined to go places. #Quote by Vera-Ellen
Places quotes by Michael Adam Hamilton
#66. As an artist, I think it is important for us to mark places in history where we have made progress, to celebrate by expressing that reality. #Quote by Michael Adam Hamilton
Places quotes by Josh Hamilton
#67. The whole idea of the suburbs was to create these family-friendly places where people could flock and have more control over their existences, and keep things very controlled and placid and keep outside forces at bay. #Quote by Josh Hamilton
Places quotes by Richard Ben-Veniste
#68. Our mandate expects that we will build on the Joint Inquiry's investigation and we will not be re-inventing the wheel. But we go to places which the Joint Inquiry was not permitted to explore. #Quote by Richard Ben-Veniste
Places quotes by Thomas Moore
#69. Textures, places, and personalities are important on the soul path, which feels more like an initiation into the multiplicity of life than a single-minded assault upon enlightenment. As the soul makes its unsteady way, delayed by obstacles and distracted by all kinds of charms, aimlessness is not overcome. The wish for progress may have to be set aside. #Quote by Thomas Moore
Places quotes by Albert Einstein
#70. The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Places quotes by Grete Waitz
#71. Running gives me a clearer perspective on the world ... I've always seen the world by running, and that has allowed me to view things in a different way. Places look different in the early-morning hours, when the streets are deserted. I've smelled crabs boiling on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco on my way to the Golden Gate Bridge, watched the sun rise over Diamond Head in Hawaii, and seen deer grazing on the Alps in St. Moritz, Switzerland. I clearly remember turning to my husband, Jack, in one of these places and saying, 'People don't know what they're missing.' #Quote by Grete Waitz
Places quotes by Mary Lambert
#72. Before I got on full-time medication, I believed that my mental disorder was the reason I could create so much and create well, because it made me crazy. I could go to these dark places and then come out of it and just be human again. #Quote by Mary Lambert
Places quotes by Judi Dench
#73. I don't think that care homes are all rotten old places that ought to be shut down. #Quote by Judi Dench
Places quotes by John Ashbery
#74. I like poems you can tack all over with a hammer and there are no hollow places. #Quote by John Ashbery
Places quotes by John Ortberg
#75. There is something you can't fix, can't heal, or can't escape, and all you can do it trust God. Finding ultimate refuge in God means you become so immersed in his presence, so convinced of his goodness, so devoted to his lordship that you find even the cave is a perfectly safe place to be because he is there with you. #Quote by John Ortberg
Places quotes by Marie Kondo
#76. The best way to find out what we really need is to get rid of what we don't. Quests to faraway places or shopping sprees are no longer necessary. All you have to do is eliminate what you don't need by confronting each of your possessions properly. #Quote by Marie Kondo
Places quotes by Greg Proops
#77. Oh, no! I haven't lost hope at all! Look, we're all here–we're all having a good time on Sunday night! I just read you a lot of depressing shit like that and talk about these things because you have to think about them sometimes. I haven't lost hope at all. There's going to be abortion; there's going to be health care; there's going to be medical marijuana; there's going to be peace in the world; there's going to be homosexual marriage: all this is going to happen, because all the generation that hates it and is against it and is fervent about it is going to die. I may not get to see it, but . . . The people who are young right now don't care about any of those things: they care about technology; they care about eating; they care about learning. They're curious; they want to find out things; they want the world to be bigger; they want to know about other people in other places; they want to inform themselves and use analytical thinking; they don't trust the traditional media sources that we've all been poisoned to fucking listen to like the television and the newspapers and all the shit that comes up on the Internet: they learn to fucking discern because they have to pick out pieces of information all the time. So, I have nothing but fucking hope for the world. #Quote by Greg Proops
Places quotes by Ellen Gilchrist
#78. It was spring when it happened and the schoolroom windows were open all day long, and every afternoon after Billy left we had milk from little waxy cartons and Mrs. Jansma would read us chapters from a wonderful book about some children in England that had a bed that took them places at night. #Quote by Ellen Gilchrist
Places quotes by Mark Twain
#79. I don't like to commit myself about Heaven and Hell, you see, I have friends in both places. #Quote by Mark Twain
Places quotes by Louise DeSalvo
#80. Through our reading we can travel to other times and other places, into other peoples minds and hearts and souls: it is a transcendent experience. #Quote by Louise DeSalvo
Places quotes by Ruben Blades
#81. I think in New York we had respect and we would pretty much fill up the places where we went, but I never got the sense that we really were Number 1 here in New York among the Latin crowds. #Quote by Ruben Blades
Places quotes by Owen Wister
#82. It was through the Declaration of Independence that we Americans acknowledged the eternal inequality of man. For by it we abolished a cut-and-dried aristocracy. We had seen little men artificially held up in high places, and great men artificially held down in low places, and our own justice-loving hearts abhorred this violence to human nature. Therefore, we decreed that every man should thenceforth have equal liberty to find his own level. By this very decree we acknowledged and gave freedom to true aristocracy, saying, "Let the best man win, whoever he is." Let the best man win! That is America's word. That is true democracy. And true democracy and true aristocracy are one and the same thing #Quote by Owen Wister
Places quotes by John Jakes
#83. Libraries are magical places. There's nothing quite like strolling the hushed aisles, letting your eye rove along dimly lit shelves. Each spine, each title, seems to beckon with a promise of incredible wonders, surprises, and adventures. #Quote by John Jakes
Places quotes by Z'EV
#84. In L.A., I called every scrap yard and surplus place that was listed, about 50 or 60 places, and only at one of them did the owner get intrigued and let me go around the yard to find stuff. Because the insurance regulations are such that you can't go into the places anymore. #Quote by Z'EV
Places quotes by Larry Hagman
#85. You know Hollywood is a weird and wonderful place, I didn't know I Dream of Jeanie had been cancelled after 5 years until I went back to go on the lot to pick up some clothes and things I had in my dressing room. #Quote by Larry Hagman
Places quotes by Mira Gonzalez
#86. I feel comfortable tweeting things that I would never feel comfortable saying in a real life conversation, or even in other places on the internet. #Quote by Mira Gonzalez
Places quotes by Jennifer Niven
#87. I think of my own epitaph, still to be written, and all the places I'll wander. No longer rooted, but gold, flowing. I feel a thousand capacities spring up in me. -Violet #Quote by Jennifer Niven
Places quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#88. Stealing regular stuff was no fun. She wanted a real challenge. Over the last two years, she'd picked the most difficult places to enter. Then she'd snuck in.
And eaten their dinners. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Places quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#89. This is about sending a very strong message that Scotland does want to stay in the European Union and we're an open country, a good place to live, work, study and to do business and it's really important as we take forward what will be challenging work ahead of us, that we send those messages. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Places quotes by Isabelle Huppert
#90. Firstly I did it in this huge theatre in Avignon, then to smaller places, then bigger places. You have to change the volume of the voice, give more or less. The way you have to relate to space makes it like sculpture. #Quote by Isabelle Huppert
Places quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#91. To salve the pains of consciousness, some people anesthetize themselves with sunny thoughts. But not everyone can follow their lead, above all not those who sneer at the sun and everything upon which it beats down. Their only respite is in the balm of bleakness. Disdainful of the solicitations of hope, they look for sanctuary in desolate places - a scattering of ruins in a barren locale or a rubble of words in a book where someone whispers in a dry voice, I too am here. #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Places quotes by Erin Bowman
#92. I have stories to write and places to visit, and legends are like the wind––intangible and fleeting. #Quote by Erin Bowman
Places quotes by Aasif Mandvi
#93. England has an interesting relationship with the Indian subcontinent because the years of colonization and the history between the two places. #Quote by Aasif Mandvi
Places quotes by Jason Molina
#94. I always lived by railroads, and I would find places to just look at the horizon, and I always expected there was something somewhere else. And sometimes I think that's more a metaphysical somewhere else rather than just to get out of the town. #Quote by Jason Molina
Places quotes by Umberto Eco
#95. Sometimes I look a the Moon, and I imagine that those darker spots are caverns, cities, islands, and the places that shine are those where the sea catches the light of the sun like the glass of a mirror ... I would like to tell of war and friendship among the various parts of the body, the arms that do battle with the feet, and the veins that make love with the arteries or the bones with the marrow. All the stories I would like to write persecute me when I am in my chamber, it seems as if they are all around me, the little devils, and while one tugs at my ear, another tweaks my nose, and each says to me, 'Sir, write me, I am beautiful'. #Quote by Umberto Eco
Places quotes by Robertson Davies
#96. Canada has one of the highest rates of insanity in any civilized country and one reason might be that life in many places is so desperately dull. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Places quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#97. Sometimes I wonder if he wasn't born dead. I never met a man who was less interested in the living. Sometimes I think that's the trouble with the world: too many people in high places who are stone-cold dead. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Places quotes by Holly Lisle
#98. I had come to discover that "safe" was an illusion, a pretense that adults wrapped around their children- and sometimes themselves- to make the world seem comfortable. I had discovered that under that thin cover of let's-pretend, monsters and nightmares lay, and that not all of them came from places like the moonroads or the nightling cities. Some of the monsters were people we knew. People we thought we could trust. #Quote by Holly Lisle
Places quotes by David Boehi
#99. Notice that God did much more than give Adam someone so that he wouldn't be lonely. God's solution for Adam's need was to "make him a helper suitable for him." It's important here to note that "helper" does not mean "inferior person." On the contrary, in the day when Moses penned these words, to identify a woman as a "helper" ran countercultural to the common low view of women. Moses actually elevated the sense of a woman's worth and role by calling her by the same name used in other places in the Old Testament to describe God Himself (see Pss. 30:10 and 54:4). To be called a "helper" here speaks more to the simple fact that God had plans for Adam that he could not fulfill without a mate - he was incomplete. Adam needed Eve. #Quote by David Boehi
Places quotes by Anne Michaels
#100. Like the moon, I want to touch places
just by looking. To tell
new things at three in the morning, when we're
awake with rain or any sadness, or slendering through
reeds of sleep, surfacing to skin. #Quote by Anne Michaels
Places quotes by Nina LaCour
#101. No one talked about the way the summer was supposed to unfold or the places we'd find ourselves in the fall. #Quote by Nina LaCour
Places quotes by Emmuska Orczy
#102. Had she put turned back then, she would have seen that which would have made her own sufferings seem but light and easy to bear-a strong man, overwhelmed with his own passion and his own despair. Pride had given way at last, obstinacy was gone: the will was powerless. He was but a man madly, blindly, passionately in love, and as soon as her light footstep had died away within the house, he knelt down upon the terrace steps, and in the very madness of his love he kissed one by one the places where her small foot had trodden, and the stone balustrade there, were her tiny hand had rested last. #Quote by Emmuska Orczy
Places quotes by Jack London
#103. Seven days from the time they pulled into Dawson, they dropped down the steep bank by the Barracks to the Yukon Trail, and pulled for Dyea and Salt Water. Perrault was carrying despatches if anything more urgent than those he had brought in; also, the travel pride had gripped him, and he purposed to make the record trip of the year. Several things favored him in this. The week's rest had recuperated the dogs and put them in thorough trim. The trail they had broken into the country was packed hard by later journeyers. And further, the police had arranged in two or three places deposits of grub for dog and man, and he was travelling light. #Quote by Jack London
Places quotes by Alain De Botton
#104. Mental health: having enough safe places in your mind for your thoughts to settle. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Places quotes by Chris Hadfield
#105. It was remarkable to see from space how predictable people are. Our homes and towns are almost all in places with moderate temperatures, and they generally have the same shape - a thinly occupied outer blob of suburb surrounding a densely populated core, all based around a ready source of water. #Quote by Chris Hadfield
Places quotes by Mike Massimino
#106. It was one of those perfect nights, listening to the waves crash, feeling the warm summer breeze, watching the sun set over the ocean as the moon rose up in the sky. I looked out over the cliffs and I thought about the explorers who had sailed from places like this, what they'd accomplished, mapping the unknown world, charting our place in the universe. How many times had they failed and fallen down only to get back up and try again? How many times had they sailed out on an impossible voyage and made a successful return home? I sat there with Carola looking out over the endless horizon. It was strange, but I felt like everything was going to be okay. The end of my story was not yet written, and I still had the chance to make it extraordinary. #Quote by Mike Massimino
Places quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#107. Happiness is often somewhere near us, not in the far places! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Places quotes by Louie Anderson
#108. I live in California, the worst place in the world for fat people. There are three of us. They have us on eight-hour shifts, so it works out. #Quote by Louie Anderson
Places quotes by Jennifer Niven
#109. I am carried off. We yield to this slow flood ... In and out, we are swept; ... we can not step outside its sinuous, its hesitating, its abrupt, its perfectly encircling walls. #Quote by Jennifer Niven
Places quotes by Adalet Agaoglu
#110. What is it we call life anyway? The lights that flash within us from time to time. Those lit moments, these tiny dots, one by one, added on from one end to the other, intermingling with each other sometimes, one on top of the other, or slipped underneath; this combination of dots that moves forward, constantly changing places and directions, creates very beautiful music. #Quote by Adalet Agaoglu
Places quotes by Christmas Evans
#111. Now, apparently strengthened as by a new spirit, with "might in the inner man," he labored with renewed energy and zeal; and new and singular blessings descended upon his labors. In two years, his ten preaching places in Anglesea were increased to twenty, and six hundred converts were added to the church under his immediate care. #Quote by Christmas Evans
Places quotes by Suzanne Vega
#112. I wasn't afraid of going places or doing new things. I would do just about anything or go anywhere. I'd get a notion in my mind and just follow it. #Quote by Suzanne Vega
Places quotes by Kim Cattrall
#113. Most people look at ageing as a disease. They do. They have prescriptions and places where you go to eradicate it. #Quote by Kim Cattrall
Places quotes by Mark Driscoll
#114. The truths of Christianity are constant, unchanging, and meant for all people, times, and places. But the methods by which truth is articulated and practiced must be culturally appropriated, and therefore constantly translated ... if doctrine is constant and practice is constantly changing, the result is living orthodoxy. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Places quotes by Bertrand Russell
#115. Science can teach us, and I think our hearts can teach us, no longer to look around for imaginary supporters, no longer to invent allies in the sky, but rather to look to our own efforts here below to make the world a fit place to live. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Places quotes by Inspiracreatiflife
#116. Always take a picture for everywhere you go; if you don't, then all you just lost was the precious memories and moments #Quote by Inspiracreatiflife
Places quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#117. Write them all down. The mistakes and the blessings and the places you cracked in two. Write the prayers and the tantrums. The sacred and the profane. The open roads and the closed doors. Nothing is permanent. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Places quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#118. Beauty exists, even in unlikely places. The key isn't to open your eyes but to open your heart. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Places quotes by Lori Lansens
#119. The drugstore is a wonderful place to see all manner of ailments. #Quote by Lori Lansens
Places quotes by Anna Torv
#120. I think my attitude's different when I'm in the different places. I don't walk around in character. I try not to walk around with the accent, but those little things change you, whether it's your hair, your clothes, your shoes or a different silhouette. People absolutely look at you differently. #Quote by Anna Torv
Places quotes by Marina Keegan
#121. People are strange about animals. Especially large ones. Daily, on the docks of Wellfleet Harbor, thousands of fish are scaled, gutted, and seasoned with thyme and lemon. No one strokes their sides with water. No one cries when their jaws slip open. Pilot whales are not an endangered species, yet people spend tens of thousands of dollars in rescue efforts, trucking the wounded to aquariums and in some places even airlifting them off beaches. #Quote by Marina Keegan
Places quotes by Laura Lippman
#122. There are, of course, an infinite number of places where one is not, yet only one place where one actually is. #Quote by Laura Lippman
Places quotes by Diane Setterfield
#123. They are more real than the books on the shelves, books that are sketched with the barest hint of a line here and there, fading in places to a ghostly nothingness. Why recall the picture now, you must be wondering. The reason I remember it so well is that it seems to be an image of the way I have lived my own life. I have closed my study door on the world and shut myself away with people of my imagination. #Quote by Diane Setterfield
Places quotes by J. Michael Straczynski
#124. If sacred places are spared the ravages of war ... then make all places sacred. And if the holy people are to be kept harmless from war ... then make all people holy. #Quote by J. Michael Straczynski
Places quotes by Steven L. Peck
#125. Here, her hand in mine was the one reality that severed us from the cold click-clack of Hell. I rubbed her hand and she sighed; wasn't that meaning? Wasn't that something we could cling to? I could be with this other. I could form no other relation, but maybe her hand in mine was enough, both sufficient and necessary. In Hell there was no sense of place, because all places were the same. Uniform monotony. A place without place. A place without context. But, here, now, I could rub her hand and she would sigh. She was a difference. Perhaps each person was the only difference in all these halls of unchanging ranks of books, kiosks, clocks, and carpet, and that, and that, at least, we had to hold to. #Quote by Steven L. Peck
Places quotes by J.M. Darhower
#126. Fuck," I groan, my voice gritty, my eyes closing as I tilt my head back. Her hand is warm, her skin velvety soft, but her touch is firm as she strokes, hitting just the right places to set me off. Her thumb massages the sweet spot on the underside of my cock, the sensitive outer ridges of the head, right where those nerve endings are bundled.
Jesus, this woman knows her anatomy.
A+
Top marks.
Summa cum laude.
Valedictorian of her motherfucking class. #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Places quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#127. There is not the woman born who desires to eat the bread of dependence, no matter whether it be from the hand of father, husband, or brother; for any one who does so eat her bread places herself in the power of the person from whom she takes it. #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Places quotes by Meister Eckhart
#128. A man may go into the field and say his prayer and be aware of God, or he may be in Church and be aware of God; but if he is more aware of Him because he is in a quiet place, that is his own deficiency and not due to God, Who is alike present in all things and places, and is willing to give Himself everywhere so far as lies in Him ... He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Places quotes by Henry James
#129. One has not the alternative of speaking of London as a whole, for the simple reason that there is no such thing as the whole of it. It is immeasurable - embracing arms never meet. Rather it is a collection of many wholes, and of which of them is it most important to speak? #Quote by Henry James
Places quotes by Garrison Keillor
#130. What keeps faith cheerful is the extreme persistence of gentleness and humor. Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things: through cooking and small talk, through storytelling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet corn and flowers, through sports, music, and books, raising kids-all the places where the gravy soaks in and grace shines through. Even in a time of elephantine vanity and greed, one never has to look far to see the campfires of gentle people. Lacking any other purpose in life, it would be good enough to live for their sake. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Places quotes by John Bunyan
#131. To which I answered, That the intent of my coming thither, and to other places, was to instruct, and counsel people to forsake their sins, and close in with Christ, lest they did miserably perish; and that I could do both these without confusion (to wit), follow my calling, and preach the Word also. #Quote by John Bunyan
Places quotes by Helen Rowland
#132. Don't waste time trying to break a man's heart; be satisfied if you can just manage to chip it in a brand new place. #Quote by Helen Rowland
Places quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#133. My uncle used to let me pretend they were bricks," Linden says, startling me. He eases a thick hardcover from the shelf, hefts it in either hand, and then places it back. "I like to build houses out of them. They never came out exactly like I'd planned, but that's good. It taught me that there are three versions of things: the one I see in my mind, and the one that carries onto the paper, and then what it ultimately becomes."
For some reason I'm finding it difficult to meet his eyes. I nod at one of the lower shelves and say, "Maybe it's because in your mind you don't have to worry about building materials. So you're not as limited."
"That's astute," he says. He pauses. "You've always been astute about things. #Quote by Lauren DeStefano
Places quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#134. Do not close a single sermon without addressing the ungodly, but at the same time set yourself seasons for a determined and continuous assault upon them, and proceed with all your soul to the conflict. On such occasions aim distinctly at immediate conversions; labor to remove prejudices, to resolve doubts, to conquer objections, and to drive the sinner out of his hiding-places at once. Summon the church members to special prayer, beseech them to speak personally both with the concerned and the unconcerned, and be yourself doubly upon the watch to address individuals. We have found that our February meetings at the Tabernacle have yielded remarkable results: the whole month being dedicated to special effort. Winter is usually the preacher's harvest, because the people can come together better in the long evenings, and are debarred from out-of-door exercises and amusements. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Places quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#135. I remain just one thing, and one thing only, and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Places quotes by Lysander Spooner
#136. Let me then remind you that justice is an immutable, natural principle; and not anything that can be made, unmade, or altered by any human power. It is also a subject of science, and is to be learned, like mathematics, or any other science. It does not derive its authority from the commands, will, pleasure, or discretion of any possible combination of men, whether calling themselves a government, or by any other name. It is also, at all times, and in all places, the supreme law. And being
everywhere and always the supreme law, it is necessarily everywhere and always the only law. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Places quotes by Michael Mewshaw
#137. Personally I like going places where I don't speak the language, don't know anybody, don't know my way around and don't have any delusions that I'm in control. Disoriented, even frightened, I feel alive, awake in ways I never am at home. #Quote by Michael Mewshaw
Places quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#138. This wasn't about knowledge but about the aura knowledge exuded, the places it came from, which were almost all outside the world we lived in now, yet were still within the ambivalent space where all historical objects and ideas reside. #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Places quotes by Kenyatta Jean-Paul Garcia
#139. ReVision The failure I saw myself grew darker and darker as the halfway halves halfway blended And somewhere there exists a world so removed from this In moonlight's beam with warriors in gloaming dreaming of being right back here at home Where the snow draped trees beat loneliness and beauty into being And the mirror wipes it all away as a glance becomes a stare And all but a few places unwrinkled and creased remain of what used to be. #Quote by Kenyatta Jean-Paul Garcia
Places quotes by Sophia Amoruso
#140. I feel like there's so many places to shop today that just feel like an Excel spreadsheet put between four walls. #Quote by Sophia Amoruso
Places quotes by Mike Barnicle
#141. The middle-class ladder has rungs that no longer exist for many trying to climb higher. Instead, for too many, in too many places, their chore is simply trying to hang on. #Quote by Mike Barnicle
Places quotes by Geoffrey Canada
#142. Poverty places not just one or two obstacles but multiple obstacles in a child's pathway to what we would consider to be regular development - cognitively, intellectually and emotionally. #Quote by Geoffrey Canada
Places quotes by Carey Mulligan
#143. I was quite straight-laced. I was quite academic until I was about 14 and then I went to boarding school where I had the opportunity to continue to be very academic, but got less interested in it and became more involved in acting. And then when I was applying for universities I used a couple of places on my UCAS form to apply for drama school without telling anyone ... but didn't get into drama school. But that was the most rebellious thing I did #Quote by Carey Mulligan
Places quotes by Michael Holtby
#144. It's much easier to feel (and be) safer in a tiny house. After a very short time, you will know every little nook and cranny in your house. In a large house, there are more places for someone to break into, more places for someone to hide, and more places that you have to be wary of danger. #Quote by Michael Holtby
Places quotes by Marc Bolan
#145. I personally believe that I was ... a previous life or something ... a previous reincarnation, a bard of some sort, because most of the things I write about are descriptions of places I've never been to. #Quote by Marc Bolan
Places quotes by Jane Austen
#146. No, certainly not; and I am glad you do not think of it. These schemes are not at all the thing. Young men and women driving about the country in open carriages! Now and then it is very well; but going to inns and public places together! It is not right; and I wonder Mrs. Thorpe should allow it. I am glad you do not think of going; I am sure Mrs. Morland would not be pleased. Mrs. #Quote by Jane Austen
Places quotes by Ron Lambros
#147. God does not want our faith kept in mothballs, so He sometimes allows trials and testing to come into our lives; the unexpected hardships and heartbreaks that rock us in places we never thought we'd face as a child of God. And it's in those defining moments that we knock off the cobwebs of our everyday faith and face life with a new and improved one that's empowered by God Himself. #Quote by Ron Lambros
Places quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#148. I don't know what's wrong with me tonight. I feel off, unbalanced. Aching for something. I'm losing sight of my purpose, my sense of direction. I always tell myself that I'm fighting every day for hope, for the salvation of humanity, but every time I survive only to return to yet more loss and devastation, something comes loose inside of me. It's like the people and places I love are the nuts and bolts keeping me upright; without them, I'm just scrap metal. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Places quotes by Rennie Ellis
#149. Without my photography life would be boring. Photography adds an extra dimension to my life. Somehow it confirms my place in the world #Quote by Rennie Ellis
Places quotes by Colin Wilson
#150. There is in Shaw, as in Gurdjieff and Nietzsche, a recognition of the immense effort of Will that is necessary to express even a little freedom, that places them beside Pascal and St. Augustine as religious thinkers. Their view is saved from pessimism only by its mystical recognition of the possibilities of pure Will, freed from the entanglements of automatism #Quote by Colin Wilson
Places quotes by Sara Baume
#151. It's a sad place, but then I seem to find most places sad, and maybe it's me who's sad and not the places after all. Maybe there's nowhere I can go, and no point in going. #Quote by Sara Baume
Places quotes by Dodie Smith
#152. They call them the haunted shores, these stretches of Devonshire and Cornwall and Ireland which rear up against the westward ocean. Mists gather here, and sea fog, and eerie stories. That's not because there are more ghosts here than in other places, mind you. It's just that people who live hereabouts are strangely aware of them. #Quote by Dodie Smith
Places quotes by Wendell Berry
#153. But in fact as knowledge expands globally it is being lost locally. This is the paramount truth of the modern history of rural places everywhere in the world. And it is the gravest problem of land use: Modern humans typically are using places whose nature they have never known and whose history they have forgotten; thus ignorant, they almost necessarily abuse what they use. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Places quotes by Duncan Roy
#154. I was very inspired by Peter Mullan's film about those kinds of places where you put people who'd been bad. #Quote by Duncan Roy
Places quotes by Katherine Howe
#155. Every memory we have changes slightly each time we think about it. We add stuff we learn in other places, or we forget stuff that doesn't seem important anymore. Or you think you remember something, like from your childhood, but actually you've just seen so many pictures of it, and your parents have told you about it, so you think you remember it, but you don't. A memory is a process. Instead of a thing. Like a story we tell ourselves that changes from the standpoint we're looking at it. #Quote by Katherine Howe
Places quotes by Clifford Currie Librarian Of The Ashmolean Library Oxford
#156. I found that I could not contemplate an adult life in which books were not dominant. I wanted to live and work with them ... I had to be able to take books from their places, run my finger over their backs, see how they opened, flick their corners straight. I wanted a perspective of bookshelves always in my eye. And books, books, books. This was not a rational way of determining on a career and was much tainted by mushiness. But it was the way in which my decision hardened, before I was fifteen years old, to become a librarian. #Quote by Clifford Currie Librarian Of The Ashmolean Library Oxford
Places quotes by John Abizaid
#157. But all that having been said, you can't, in a city of a million people like Karbala, or 5 million like Baghdad, you can't be in all places at all times. #Quote by John Abizaid
Places quotes by Sam Shepard
#158. There are places where writing is acting and acting is writing. I'm not so interested in the divisions. I'm interested in the way things cross over. #Quote by Sam Shepard
Places quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#159. For a long time I believed the opposite of passion was death. I was wrong. Passion and death are implicit, one in the other. Past the border of a fiery life lies the netherworld. I can trace this road, which took me through places so hot the very air burned the lungs. I did not turn back. I pressed on, and eventually passed over the border, beyond which lies a place that is wordless and cold, so cold that it, like mercury, burns a freezing blue flame. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Places quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#160. Focus on good thoughts.
Focus on wonderful moments.
Focus on beautiful places. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Places quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#161. While its [Harvard's] undergraduate life was still controlled [in 1908-1912] by a select group of rich and fashionable families whose sons merely arrived when they were due to fill the places that had been waiting for them from the day they were born, it was, at the same time, opening its doors to a more cosmopolitan student population and beginning to take the first tentative steps toward mitigating the evils of a pyramidal social system that concentrated all its social honors upon the rich and the wellborn. #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Places quotes by Stuart Hall
#162. Popular culture is one of the sites where this struggle for and against a culture of the powerful is engaged: it is the stake to be won or lost in that struggle. It is the arena of consent and resistance. It is partly where hegemony arises, and where it is secured. It is not a sphere where socialism, a socialist culture -- already fully formed -- might be simply "expressed". But it is one of the places where socialism might be constituted. That is why "popular culture" matters. Otherwise, to tell you the truth, I don't give a damn about it. #Quote by Stuart Hall
Places quotes by Amy J. Murphy
#163. Thing to know about the Reaches....It's always trying to kill you. Even the empty places between the stars."

#164. The only dancing I did was at the discotheques. I was a very good disco dancer. I say that I learned disco dancing at the wrong places. #Quote by David H. Koch
Places quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#165. Art is supposed to reflect your journey through real life. Your discovery of your character in solitude and around other people, the moments of clarity when you feel loved and the moment when your heart breaks so much that you can hear it crack. When you run careless and free on open fields and when you're struggling on your way home on the bus. This is what makes you a real artist. Experiences, moments, stories. Falling recklessly in love, losing someone you love and then learning to belong to yourself again. Going to new places, meeting new people, driving in the middle of the night on empty streets. Going to the ocean and staying there until 6 a.m, smoking cigarettes and talking about roses and butterflies. These are the things that will give you something worth writing about, worth singing about, worth creating art around. #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Places quotes by Nicole Krauss
#166. For me, what I am making in the novel is a place to live. When I first switched from poetry to novels, I was asked why, and the metaphor I came up with was about poems as rooms. You can make a room perfect, but then you have to shut the door and never go back, whereas a novel is like a house - it can never be perfect, but you can make a life in it. #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Places quotes by Robert A. Johnson
#167. Dr. Kunkel's teacher, Dr. Jung, believed that archetypes are blueprints of the basic human qualities we all share. The archetypes themselves are undefinable natural patterns or forces that shape life in all ages and places. They cannot be known directly, but archetypal themes and images appear in myth, fairy tales, dreams, and fantasies. We tend to think of ourselves as unique individuals, and to a great extent we are. But just as there are shared patterns that shape our physical existence, such as having two arms and legs, two eyes, ten fingers and toes, so there are underlying patterns that shape our psychic existence. #Quote by Robert A. Johnson
Places quotes by Max Lerner
#168. The tourist who moves about to see and hear and open himself to all the influences of the places which condense centuries of human greatness is only a man in search of excellence. #Quote by Max Lerner
Places quotes by Donald Barthelme
#169. Miss Mandible wants to make love to me but she hesitates because I am officially a child; I am, according to the records, according to the gradebook on her desk, according to the card index in the principal's office, eleven years old. There is a misconception here, one that I haven't quite managed to get cleared up yet. I am in fact thirty-five, I've been in the Army, I am six feet one, I have hair in the appropriate places, my voice is a barritone, I know very well what to do with Miss Mandible if she ever makes up her mind. #Quote by Donald Barthelme
Places quotes by Jodi Picoult
#170. The first Abenaki word I ever learned was Bitawbagok – the word they use for Lake Champlain. It means, literally, the waters between. Since I've come back from Quebec, I have thought of my address as Bitawkdakinna. I don't know enough Abenaki to be sure it's a real word, but translated, it is the world between.
I had become a bridge between the natural world and the human one. I fit into both places and belonged to neither. Half of my heart lived with the wild wolves, the other half lived with my family. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Places quotes by Chuck Todd
#171. This deep insecurity has been going on for a while. I mean I picked it up in 2014 sitting in focus groups of women who were feeling terrified, not just about that ISIS was coming, but terrified that their children couldn't be safe at school, terrified about what was happening in Ferguson and other places. #Quote by Chuck Todd
Places quotes by Anne Lamott
#172. Mercy means compassion, empathy, a heart for someone's troubles. It's not something you do – it is something in you, accessed, revealed, or cultivated through use, like a muscle. We find it in the most unlikely places, never where we first look. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Places quotes by Rachel Keener
#173. Love is like mud. Only as strong as the shape you give it. Love is like paint. It can color over all the empty places. If you drop it, Love will break you. #Quote by Rachel Keener
Places quotes by King Krule
#174. I went through quite a few establishments that maybe weren't great for myself - security units, youth-offender places. I guess that was going to the lions' den. Social services said, 'You've got to go to some sort of school.' #Quote by King Krule
Places quotes by Andrea Barrett
#175. The life she'd led, each of the places she'd called home sending unexpected shoots toward the next, had made her open to almost anything. #Quote by Andrea Barrett
Places quotes by Kathryn Ormsbee
#176. You know," he says, "people always say if they could take their loved one's pain away, they would. But think about if you actually could. It'd be such a nightmare. You would take someone's pain, but then they would love you, so they'd just take it back, or someone else you love would take it from you, and someone they love would take it from them, and it would go on like that until the pain ended up with some person who loved but wasn't loved back. Some sad, unloved person. And they would get stuck with the pain."

"Damn, Paul. You go to dark places. #Quote by Kathryn Ormsbee

#177. The heart mourns people and places and returns to them in dreams ... #Quote by John Geddes

#178. In the broken places, the light shines through. #Quote by Leonard Cohen
Places quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#179. If we forget our past," the speaker was saying, "we won't remember our future and it will be as well for we won't have one." The General heard some of these words gradually. He had forgotten history and he didn't intend to remember it again. He had forgotten the name and face of his wife and the names and faces of his children or even if he had a wife and children, and he had forgotten the names of places and the places themselves and what had happened at them. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Places quotes by George R R Martin
#180. The strongest trees are rooted in the dark places of the earth. Darkness will be your cloak, your shield, your mother's milk. Darkness will make you strong. #Quote by George R R Martin
Places quotes by Fabio Geda
#181. How do you choose a place to settle, Enait? can you tell one from another?
You recognise it because you don't feel like leaving. Not because it's perfect, obviously. There aren't any perfect places. But there are places where at least no one tries to hurt you. #Quote by Fabio Geda

Places quotes by Michael Benanav
#183. I'd been deeply affected by my contact with the miners, not only because of their kindness, but because they'd taken this potentially hellish place and made it, if not heaven, at least human; through their simple rituals of eating, drinking tea, smoking tobacco, praying, playing, and talking, they'd created civilization in one of the most impossible places to imagine it. And what seemed like a miracle to me was, to them, just another day at work! #Quote by Michael Benanav
Places quotes by John Muir
#184. Strange the faithless fuss made about taking a walk in the safest and pleasantest of all places, a wilderness. #Quote by John Muir
Places quotes by Mark Twain
#185. In other localities certain places in the streams are much better than others, but at Niagara one place is just as good as another, for the reason that the fish do not bite anywhere. #Quote by Mark Twain
Places quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#186. Acting is about going into the space, and there are just some places that I'm not willing to go. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Places quotes by Alyson Noel
#187. And I know you've spent a lifetime trying to protect me from the staggering pain of grief that comes from losing the things and the people and the places you allowed yourself to care about
but guess what, Jennika
that's no way to live. As much as it hurts to lose something you love, there's much greater joy in getting to experience it for as long as it lasts. #Quote by Alyson Noel
Places quotes by Nancy Horan
#188. With Mr. Wright, you just grab hold of the tail of the kite. If you can hang on, you're going to go places never thought possible. #Quote by Nancy Horan
Places quotes by N. Scott Momaday
#189. To encounter the sacred is to be alive at the deepest center of human existence. Sacred places are the truest definitions of the earth; they stand for the earth immediately and forever; they are its flags and shields. If you would know the earth for what it really is, learn it through its sacred places. At Devil's Tower or Canyon de Chelly or the Cahokia Mounds, you touch the pulse of the living planet; you feel its breath upon you. You become one with a spirit that pervades geologic time and space. #Quote by N. Scott Momaday

Places quotes by John Prendergast
#191. There is a long and successful tradition of popular movements in the U.S. and elsewhere having an impact on crises in forgotten places. #Quote by John Prendergast
Places quotes by Catherine O'Hara
#192. When you lose someone you love, they never really leave you. They just move into a special place in your heart. #Quote by Catherine O'Hara
Places quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#193. She complains all the time about her hair turning gray and her butt sagging and her skin wrinkling, but I'm supposed to be grateful for a face full of zits, hair in embarrassing places, and feet that grow an inch a night. Utter crap. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Places quotes by Steve Alford
#194. The two places that I had most imprinted in my mind and in my memory were UCLA and Indiana. To play at one and coach at the other is unbelievable. #Quote by Steve Alford
Places quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#195. Get some money, buy a red coffeepot, move out. Find a new place to plug it in. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Places quotes by Katherine Schwarzenegger
#196. When I was younger, I played sports and went to camp. As I got older, my parents began to instill in us the importance of giving back to the community, especially those places around the world that are less fortunate than my very privileged life growing up in Los Angeles. #Quote by Katherine Schwarzenegger
Places quotes by Diana Abu-Jaber
#197. Aunt Rachel removes the knaffea from the oven and places it on its sumptuous tray; the shredded phyllo dough is crisp and brown, crackling with hot, rose-scented syrup. Nestled within, like a naughty secret, is the melting layer of sweet cheese. The pastry is freshly hot, the only way to eat it, really, with its miraculous study in contrasts - the running cheese hidden within crisp, crackling layers of baked phyllo and the distinctive, brocaded complexities of flavors. It's so hot that it steams in your mouth, and at first you eat it with just the tips of your teeth. Then the layers of crisp and sweet and soft intermingle, a series of surprises. It is so rich and dense that you can eat only a little bit, and then it is over and the knaffea is just a pleasant memory - like a lovely dream that you forget a few seconds after you wake. But for a few seconds, you knew you were eating knaffea. #Quote by Diana Abu-Jaber
Places quotes by James Joyce
#198. You bore me away, framed me in oak and tinsel, set me above your marriage couch. Unseen, one summer eve, you kissed me in four places. And with loving pencil you shaded my eyes, my bosom and my shame. #Quote by James Joyce
Places quotes by Nick Flynn
#199. Sometimes I'd see my father, walking past my building on his way to another nowhere. I could have given him a key, offered a piece of my floor. A futon. A bed. But I never did. If I let him inside I would become him, the line between us would blur, my own slow-motion car wreck would speed up. The slogan on the side of a moving company truck read TOGETHER WE ARE GOING PLACES
modified by a vandal or a disgruntled employee to read TOGETHER WE ARE GOING DOWN. If I went to the drowning man the drowning man would pull me under. I couldn't be his life raft. #Quote by Nick Flynn
Places quotes by Terri Windling
#200. These days I live in a magical little village on Dartmoor in Devon, England, and my "special spot" is a moss-covered rock in a circle of trees in the woods behind my house.
I often go into the woods, or walk through the fields and hills nearby, when I need inspiration, or to work out a plot problem, or come up with an idea. I think better on my feet, particularly when there is beautiful countryside around me and a dog at my side.
When I was younger and lived in big cities, I had special places there too. There's magic everywhere, if you look. #Quote by Terri Windling
