And with a gentle hand,
Lay it where Childhood’s dreams are twined
In Memory’s mystic band,
Like pilgrim’s withered wreath of flowers
Plucked in far-off land.

For while the tired waves, vainly breaking, Seem here no painful inch to gain, Far back, through creeks and inlets making, Comes silent, flooding in, the main.

Writing will be like a journey, every word a footstep that takes me further into undiscovered land.
David Almond
We are all great landed proprietors, if we only knew it. What we lack is not land, but the power to enjoy it. Moreover, this great inheritance has the additional advantage that it entails no labor, requires no management. The landlord has the trouble, but the landscape belongs to everyone who has eyes to see it.
John Lubbock
Give me a land of boughs in leaf A land of trees that stand; Where trees are fallen there is grief; I love no leafless land.
A. E. Housman
Use no superfluous word, no adjective, which does not reveal something. Don’t use such an expression as ‘dim land of peace.’ It dulls the image. It mixes an abstraction with the concrete. It comes from the writer’s not realizing that the natural object is always the adequate symbol. Go in fear of abstraction.
Ezra Pound
President Obama knows that wars are not to be entered into lightly; he knows that overseas conflicts don’t only do damage in the land in which they are fought, but in the land of those who fight them, as well.
Lincoln Chafee
The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him. If it were not for the laws of the land, we should soon see a massacre of the righteous. Jesus was watched by his enemies, who were thirsting for his blood: his disciples must not look for favour where their Master found hatred and death.

Upon the soil they fought to save!

The greatest fine art of the future will be the making of a comfortable living from a small piece of land.

Our basic aim is to liberate the land from the Mediterranean Seas to the Jordan River. We are not concerned with what took place in June 1967 or in eliminating the consequences of the June war.

Yasser Arafat

Joel Edgerton
On land off an ice covered sea the traveler can, for example, detect the presence of open water, simply because it reflects less light than land or ice. The open sea’s telltale sign is thus a darkness on the underside of the clouds.
Harold Gatty

Bindi Irwin

Most of the writers in TV are from L.A. or New York, and those are places where people are cynical and snarky. And they fly from L.A. to New York in an airplane over this vast, expansive land where people aren’t snarky; they’re a lot more like the ‘Parks and Rec’ characters.
Chris Pratt
The sea is flowing ever, The land retains it never.

Lyndon B. Johnson
I love the water. Everything about it. Smelling the humidity in the air, seeing the mist rise in the morning, feeling the dew-wet grass on my bare feet. I love watching the fish jump and the geese land. We even have an eagle here that circles every so often.
Lori Foster

Woodrow Wilson
And thus ever by day and night, under the sun and under the stars, climbing the dusty hills and toiling along the weary plains, journeying by land and journeying by sea, coming and going so strangely, to meet and to act and react on one another, move all we restless travellers through the pilgrimage of life.
Charles Dickens
I have no protection at home, or resting place abroad. … I am an outcast from the society of my childhood, and an outlaw in the land of my birth. I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner as all my fathers were.
Frederick Douglass
England may as well dam up the waters of the Nile with bulrushes as to fetter the step of Freedom, more proud and firm in this youthful land than where she treads the sequestered glens of Scotland, or couches herself among the magnificent mountains of Switzerland.
Lydia M. Child
Christians. They’re determined to rid the land of any who worship the Horned One. Murdering all the druids, burning the temples, sometimes whole villages, and knocking over the standing stones.” The Lady’s face hardened. “This god of peace and love certainly likes to bathe the land in blood.
Brom

Edna Ferber
How many of us lobby for green energy or protected lands, but don’t engage with the local bounty to lay by for tomorrow’s unseasonal reality? That we tend to not even think about this as a foundation for solutions in our food systems shows how quickly we want other people to solve these issues.
Joel Salatin
And here we are with our improved human world that we’ve spent a great deal of time and energy working on. We’ve improved the rivers and the lakes and the land and our society and our ways of living to the point where we now wonder if the human race will survive.

Let’s pass more gun control laws and buy metal detectors for every public school in the land – anything but tell kids that life is sacred, because its Creator deems it so.

Jan Morris
My chin is weak. I find it hard to make decisions. For years I had been caught between the two stools of security on the land and rich-scented life on the exotic islands of literature.

Patrick Kavanagh
By these purchases the Indian title, with moderate reservations, has been extinguished to the whole of the land within the limits of the State of Ohio, and to a part of that in the Michigan Territory and of the State of Indiana.

What should be the future of Israel? Is the land the most important choice, and for that reason to keep the whole of the land at any cost, or to have a partition and build the Jewish state on part of the land? And the other part?
Shimon Peres
They’re still building and testing / But what can we do / Condemning the seas and the land and the trees to a tomb

Salman Rushdie
Things. Cosas. Things attach themselves like leeches to the human soul, then they bleed out the sweetness and the music and the primordial joy of being unencumbered upon the land.
Tom Robbins
Always the edge of the sea remains an elusive and indefinable boundary. The shore has a dual nature, changing with the swing of the tides, belonging now to the land, now to the sea.
Rachel Carson
Warmest climes but nurse the cruellest fangs: the tiger of Bengal crouches in spiced groves of ceaseless verdure. Skies the most effulgent but basket the deadliest thunders: gorgeous Cuba knows tornadoes that never swept tame northern lands.
Herman Melville
On these magic shores children at play are for ever beaching their coracles. We too have been there; we can still hear the sound of the surf, though we shall land no more.

England, a happy land we know,
Where follies naturally grow,
Where without culture they arise,
And tow’r above the common size.

Walt Whitman
Im for the fracking. I think its an opportunity for Ohio to really get a lot of jobs. But we have to do it right. We have to really take a deep breath, do it right, make sure the public is protected, make sure our land is protected.
Mike DeWine
Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

John Fogerty
Come, cuddle your head on my shoulder, dear, your head like the golden rod, and we will go sailing away from here to the beautiful Land Of Nod.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
I like stories in specific time periods. ‘The Revenant’s’ era of American history was fascinating because it was this lawless no-man’s land. It defined the idea of the American frontiersman as man conquering nature. In a way, the story of Hugh Glass is about man dominating nature.
Leonardo DiCaprio
Somewhere, over the rainbow, Way up tall, There’s a land where they’ve never heard of cholesterol.
Allan Sherman
Would you let the aliens land, please? They might be here to pick me up.
Bill Hicks
Once you land on who you think the character is and what his conflicts are, you have to let that lead you. You have to throw all that other stuff away and not be worried about this epic responsibility, or it will just crush and paralyze you.
Zack Snyder
A five-hour flight works out to three days and nights on land, by rail, from sea to shining sea. You can chalk off the hours on the back of the seat ahead. But seventy-some hours will not seem so long to you if you tell yourself first: This is where I am going to be for the rest of my natural life.
Amy Hempel
Everybody knows we’re entitled to one Jerusalem. History reveals very simply that this is our land from the days of the Bible.

Irving Berlin
The Bible towers in content above all earlier religious literature; and it towers just as impressively over all subsequent literature in the direct simplicity of its message and…its appeal to men of all lands and times.
William F. Albright
In the land of Ingary where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of the three. Everyone knows you are the one who will fail first, and worst, if the three of you set out to seek your fortunes.
Diana Wynne Jones
The first thing I do is lay out that melody and figure out how it has to hold here and then finish to land here, because you know in advance you’re going to want the melody to catch four things in the action.
Danny Elfman
The fact of the matter is that Buddhism has changed a lot. When St. Francis of Xavier arrived in Japan, he wrote back to the Vatican and made a joke. “It is unfortunate,” he said, “that the Lutherans were here before me.” By this he meant that Pure Land Buddhism was so much like Lutheranism.
Ninian Smart
Land and sea, weakness and decline are great separators, but death is the great divorcer for ever.
John Keats
Did you think you could dump me, and I’d bounce back to her and miraculously be happy? I’m not a Ping-Pong ball. You can’t just swat me back and forth and expect me to be content wherever I land. If Tod dumped you tomorrow, would you come back to me?
Rachel Vincent
Be faithful and true of word; let thy walk be plain and lowly: thou wilt get on, though in savage land. If thy words be not faithful and true, thy walk plain and lowly, wilt thou get on, though in thine own home? Standing, see these words ranged before thee; driving, see them written upon the yoke. Then thou wilt get on.
Confucius
The known is finite, the unknown infinite; spiritually we find ourselves on a tiny island in the middle of a boundless ocean of the inexplicable. It is our task, from generation to generation, to drain a small amount of additional land.
Thomas Huxley
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land.
Hank Williams, Jr.
In many respects, Afghanistan represents a more difficult problem set. It does not have a number of the blessings that Iraq has in terms of the oil, gas, land of two rivers, the human capital that Iraq built up over the years, the muscle memory of a strong government – albeit one that was corrupted over time.
David Petraeus
Americans are finally realizing that once you lose land, you can’t get it back.
Christine Todd Whitman
Native Americans were driven off their land. Lincoln even took part in the Black Hawk campaign against the Native Americans in Illinois. While they were being exterminated and driven off their land, Whites were collecting assets.
Ishmael Reed
When a profit-seeking company proposes to take citizens’ private land away for its own gain, people should stand up for their rights.
Louis Bacon
While we try to amass wealth, make piles of money, get hold of the land as our real property, overtop one another in riches, we have palpably cast off justice, and lost the common good. I should like to know how any man can be just, who is deliberately aiming to get out of someone else what he wants for himself.
Saint Basil
So on this windy sea of land, the Fiend Walked up and down alone bent on his prey.
John Milton
The river moves from land to water to land, in and out of organisms, reminding us what native peoples have never forgotten: that you cannot separate the land from the water, or the people from the land.
Lynn Culbreath Noel
He seemed to be waiting for a miracle to save him from the depths his life had reached and take him to a land of dreams.
Naguib Mahfouz
We are the land. To the best of my understanding, that is the fundamental idea that permeates American Indian life.
Paula Gunn Allen
A church in the land without the Spirit is rather a curse than a blessing. If you have not the Spirit of God, Christian worker, remember that you stand in somebody else’s way; you are a fruitless tree standing where a fruitful tree might grow.
Charles Spurgeon
Israel has WMD, and it has to sign [chemical warfare agreement], and Israel is occupying our land, so that’s we talked about the Middle East, not Syria, not Israel ; it should be comprehensive.
Bashar al-Assad
One thing that I have been trying to do is bring together in places like Bosnia technologists who create ever-more destructive land mines [and convince them not to build more dangerous mines]. And that has actually worked.
Jaron Lanier
So what is the Dreaming? I would say the Dreaming is a non-indigenous term used in its broadest sense to describe the stories of our ancestors and how they shaped the land and how they are still part of the land… Across Aboriginal Australia there are as many different terms for Dreaming as there are language groups
Hetti Perkins
Herein lies our problem. If we level that much land to grow rice and whatever, then no other animal could live there except for some insect pest species. Which is very unfortunate.
Steve Irwin
I don’t think I’d have done comedy if I was born eighty years ago I’d have been a lord. Shooting people that were on my land With a wig, yeah. And some crisps.
Noel Fielding
Prayer for many is like a foreign land. When we go there, we go as tourists. Like most tourists, we feel uncomfortable and out of place. Like most tourists, we therefore move on before too long and go somewhere else.
Robert McAfee Brown
I think it would be fair and right to use some of my land and wealth for a drug-rehab center or an Indian school.
George Carlin
Even though the method of ‘Harvest’ was a historical novel, its intentions were that of a modern novel. I’m asking you to think about land being seized in Brazil by soya barons. It’s also a novel about immigration.
Jim Crace
I would not be a Moses to lead you into the Promised Land, because if I could lead you into it, someone else could lead you out of it.
Eugene V. Debs
[The public lands represent] in a sense, the breathing space of the nation.
Richard M. Nixon
There are, I sometimes think, only two sorts of people in this world – the settled and the nomad – and there is a natural antipathy between them, whatever the land to which they may belong.
Freya Stark
Land monopoly is not only monopoly, but it is by far the greatest of monopolies; it is a perpetual monopoly, and it is the mother of all other forms of monopoly.
Winston Churchill
Lanscape shapes culture.
Terry Tempest Williams
Millions upon millions of people came here full of hope and aspiration to this extraordinary land of liberty and opportunity, and helped build the United States. So the Atlantic Ocean was absolutely critical to the story of America.
Simon Winchester
I maintain that if there is such a thing as a true and honest environmentalist, it’s people like Slim and hopefully me, who have been caretakers of the land all our lives, along with the generations before us.
Wilford Brimley
On the roads of failure, it is not uncommon to see the tears of the talented; and in the land of success, to hear the victorious screams of the incompetent!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
England is the most class-ridden country under the sun. It is a land of snobbery and privilege, ruled largely by the old and silly.
George Orwell
When a little more than a teenager, I was a piano-bar pianist in the land where I was born and raised, Tuscany.
Andrea Bocelli
She is not old, she is not young, The Woman with the Serpent’s Tongue. The haggard cheek, the hungering eye, The poisoned words that wildly fly, The famished face, the fevered hand, Who slights the worthiest in the land, Sneers at the just, contemns the brave, And blackens goodness in its grave.
William Watson
I argue with wife over what little pieces of real estate investments we should try to pay on and hold, and which to let go back. We always said, “Put it in land, and you can always walk on it.” We did, but no buyers would walk on it with us.
Will Rogers
American foreign policy and military might have opened an opportunity for the Gospel in the land of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Charles Stanley
Beginning before you know what you want to say and keeping on after you have said it lands a merchant in a lawsuit or the poorhouse, and the first is a shortcut to the second.
George Horace Lorimer
I will remark in the way of general information, that in California, that land of felicitous nomenclature, the literary name of this sort of stuff is “hogwash”
Mark Twain
Antisthenes says that in a certain faraway land the cold is so intense that words freeze as soon as they are uttered, and after some time then thaw and become audible, so that words spoken in winter go unheard until the next summer.
Plutarch
America is not a land of money but of wealth-not a land of rich people, but of successful workers.
Henry Ford
I shall go the way of the open sea,
To the lands I knew before you came,
And the cool ocean breezes shall blow from me
The memory of your name.
Adela Florence Nicolson
I want to use my position of influence to change the laws of the land to the benefit of the women of Trinidad and Tobago, divide the economic pie more evenly and appoint more women to positions within the government.
Dalia Grybauskaite
I’m supposed to enforce the laws of the land. The law of Florida is that if you’re a noncitizen, you don’t vote in these races.
Rick Scott
We did all the standard camp numbers: “Down By The Aegean,” “I Am My Own Great-Great-Great-Great Grandpa,” “This Land is Minos’s Land.
Rick Riordan

John F. Kennedy
Somewhere in the land, a monster lurked.
Jerry Springer
Why did we go to war? Why did we pick people from South Carolina, California, and all the places in between to go to a foreign land and risk their lives and have some die? To make sure that Saddam Hussein could do no more damage to the region or us than he has already done.
Lindsey Graham
It is pleasant, when the sea runs high, to view from land the great distress of another.
Lucretius
Language is like looking at a map of somewhere. Love is living there and surviving on the land.
Simon Van Booy
One of the greatest men to ever walk this land was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His life exemplified unity by bringing people together for the good of all. In any small way I hope to someday bring people together like Dr. King.
Zach Wamp
And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting that principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me. Therefore, I, the Lord, justify you, and your brethren of my church, in befriending that law which is the constitutional law of the land.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
This land, which we have watered with our tears and our blood, is now our mother country, and we are well satisfied to stay where wisdom abounds and gospel is free.

For the land, the sea is beautiful; for the sea, the land is beautiful!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Speculation in land may be necessary to capitalism, but speculative orgies periodically become a quagmire of destruction for capital itself.
David Harvey
Why should there be hunger and deprivation in any land, in any city, at any table, when man has the resources and the scientific know-how to provide all mankind with the basic necessities of life? There is no deficit in human resources. The deficit is in human will.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
There were those emotions down there, and though she couldn’t quite feel them, they were strong and she feared them. It was like watching a thunderhead from high up in a plane, and though you weren’t under it, you knew how it would feel if you were. You knew you’d have to land eventually.
Ann Brashares
Wakening from the dreaming forest there, the hazel-sprig sang under my tongue, its drifting fragrance climbed up through my conscious mind as if suddenly the roots I had left behind cried out to me, the land I had lost with my childhood – and I stopped, wounded by the wandering scent.
Pablo Neruda
Good stewardship of the environment is not just a personal responsibility, it is a public value… Our duty is to use the land well, and sometimes not to use it at all. This is our responsibility as citizens, but more than that, it is our calling as stewards of the earth.
George W. Bush
There is no foreign land; it is the traveller only that is foreign.
Robert Louis Stevenson
With earth’s burgeoning human population to feed we must turn to the sea with understanding and new technology. We need to farm it as we farm the land.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
In Israel, free men and women are every day demonstrating the power of courage and faith. Back in 1948 when Isreal was founded, pundits claimed the new country could never survive. Today, no one questions that. Israel is a land of stability and democracy in a region of tyranny and unrest.
Ronald Reagan
The land is ours. I will do everything in my power, forever, to fight against a Palestinian state being founded in the Land of Israel.
Naftali Bennett
Water. Oil pales beside it, and the value of the land itself is measured by it.

Revolution is based on land. Land is the basis of all independence. Land is the basis of freedom, justice, and equality.
Malcolm X
Yon Sun that sets upon the sea We follow in his flight; Farewell awhile to him and thee, My native land-Good Night!
Lord Byron
When something happens – good, bad or ugly – you find a way to be able to do your part for your community. How do you better the lives of Indigenous people, how do you give back to the land, how do you stay connected? All of this is the same question.
Patty Mills
When there are enough people on the land to use it but not enough to husband it, then the wildness of the soil that we call fertility begins to diminish, and the soil itself begins to flee from us in water and wind.
Wendell Berry
You have to escape from management land and get in touch with your people.
David Cottrell
We have converted huge swaths of land and ocean into human habitats where we live and grow food and harvest energy. But there’s been a sea change in the past century.
Annalee Newitz
It may sound funny, but I love the South. I don’t choose to live anywhere else. There’s land here, where a man can raise cattle, and I’m going to do it some day.
Medgar Evers
I thank my mum, dad, and home for keeping me in touch with my own country and my own land. I can be in the studio with Snoop Dogg or singing for Oprah, but I’m still me.
Jessica Mauboy
If a thousand shares of stocks or bonds make nothing, you pay nothing. But on a thousand acres of land you pay enough to support half the community who own no land and pay no taxes.
Will Rogers
A conservationist is one who is humbly aware that with each stroke [of the axe] he is writing his signature on the face of his land.
Aldo Leopold
We have the highest graduation rates, the broadest health care access, and the greatest level of home ownership and workforce participation in the country. And we did it all with a small population in a cold state that coastal big shots refer to as fly-over land.
Tim Pawlenty
Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’
Ibn Ishaq
The land of possibility is a better place to make your home than the realm of expectation will ever be
Rasheed Ogunlaru
I alternate between thinking of the planet as home – dear and familiar stone hearth and garden – and as a hard land of exile in which we are all sojourners.
Annie Dillard
The great fact was the land itself, which seemed to overwhelm the little beginnings of human society that struggled in its sombre wastes.
Willa Cather
Buy land, they’re not making it anymore.
Mark Twain
Let’s not forget, it was the government, Department of Finance and Central Bank that decided to unfairly land the taxpayers of this country with unmitigated losses of Anglo and massive legacy issues that would have been expected when nationalising a fraudulent bank.
Sean Quinn
I’m for the fracking. I think it’s an opportunity for Ohio to really get a lot of jobs. But we have to do it right. We have to really take a deep breath, do it right, make sure the public is protected, make sure our land is protected.
Mike DeWine
Dispersed as the Jews are, they still form one nation, foreign to the land they live in.
Daniel J. Boorstin
My own recipe for world peace is a bit of land for everyone.
Gladys Taber
I’ve wandered over many lands, and reaped withal no fruit, I’ve laid my pride of rank aside, and pressed my baffled suit, At stranger boards, like shameless crow, I’ve eaten bitter bread, But fierce Desire, that raging fire, still clamours to be fed.
Bhartrhari
The land is sacred. These words are at the core of your being. The land is our mother, the rivers our blood. Take our land away and we die. That is, the Indian in us dies.
Mary Brave Bird
How emigration is actually lived – well, this depends on many factors: education, economic station, language, where one lands, and what support network is in place at the site of arrival.
Daniel Alarcon
Those who were cowards never started, and those who were weak were lost on the way, but the brave find a home in every land.
Walter Knott
Property in land is as indefensible as property in man.
Henry George
Yes, a dark time passed over this land, but now there is something like light.
Dave Eggers
When someone deeply listens to you, your barefeet are on the earth, and a beloved land that seemed distant, is now at home within you.
John Fox
America has a history of political isolation and economic self-sufficiency; its citizens have tended to regard the rest of the world as a disaster area from which lucky or pushy people emigrate to the Promised Land.
Alison Lurie
The world used to think we are a land of snake charmers and black magic. But our youth has surprised the world with its IT [information technology] skills. I dream of a digital India.
Narendra Modi
One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
Andre Gide
Because I know about the Holy Land, I’ve taught lessons about the Holy Land all my life, and – but you can’t bring peace to Israel without giving the Palestinian also peace. And Lebanon and Jordan and Syria as well.
Jimmy Carter
But before and after the Mongol upheaval, the Khazars sent many offshoots into the unsubdued Slavonic lands, helping ultimately to build up the great Jewish centers of eastern Europe.
Salo Wittmayer Baron
The kind of pace that you want to use in a Western – just to acknowledge the land in the distance that everyone has to travel, and the way things develop sort of slowly – it’s almost the antithetical of what’s currently going on in the movies, you know.
Lawrence Kasdan
In the United States, where we have more land than people, it is not at all difficult for persons in good health to make money.
P. T. Barnum
O Cyrus , great King, King of Kings, Achaemenian King, King of the land of Iran. I, the Shahanshah of Iran, offer thee salutations from myself and from my nation. Rest in peace, for we are awake, and we will always stay awake.
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
Destroying green belt agricultural land for immediate economic gain is like burning your children’s inheritance to cook a single meal
Phil Harding
I’ve often been asked what drives me, particularly through the last 50 years of abuse, and ridicule. What has kept me going is one word – care. I care enough about the land, the wildlife, people, the future of humanity. If you care enough, you will do whatever you have to do, no matter what the opposition.
Allan Savory
For just a few dollars registration, you got temporary possession of a good piece of land. Live on it for five years, build a house, and farm it, and it was yours. What a brilliant economic stimulus!
Charles R. Morris
All our best men are laughed at in this nightmare land.
Jack Kerouac
If you watch ‘E.T.’ and say that there are holes in the story because this alien lands, then don’t go to the movie! It drives me insane.
John C. McGinley
O, let my land be a land where Liberty Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath, But opportunity is real, and life is free, Equality is in the air we breathe.
Langston Hughes
Movies give me an opportunity to go places. I’m not only a Swede but an American, not just a man of my time, but I’ve been living 2,000 years ago-and not just in a new country, America, but in the Holy Land, too.
Max von Sydow
Two hopeful hearts, two lands apart. Together there’s no end to what our dream can start.
Pocahontas
While waiting for a Moses to lead us into the promised land, we have forgotten how to walk.
Wendell Johnson
It’s hard to land a devastating jab/cross/hook/uppercut combo to your reader’s imagination when you’re telegraphing your punches.
Don Roff
But a stranger in a strange land, he is no one. Men know him not, and to know not is to care not for.
Bram Stoker
God’s been pretty good to me. He made me duck all those punches that were supposed to land.
Jake LaMotta
True conservation provides for wise use by the general public. The American people do not want our resources preserved for the exclusive use of the wealthy. These land and water resources belong to the people, and people of all income levels should have easy access to them.
George Aiken
The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands but in seeing with new eyes. The only adventure that is doomed from the start is the one we do not attempt.
Paul-Emile Victor
There are certain things we can only do together. There are certain things only a union can do. Only a union could harness the courage of our pioneers to settle the American west, which is why President Abraham Lincoln passed a Homestead Act giving a tract of land to anyone seeking a stake in our growing economy.
Barack Obama
How can a Negro say America is his nation? He was brought here in chains; he was put in slavery an worked like a mule for three hundred years; he was separated from his land, his culture, his God, his language!
Malcolm X
I turned my home state of Florida into the Land of Xanth.
Piers Anthony
Some people talk of morality, and some of religion, but give me a little snug property.
Maria Edgeworth
It is like a voyage of discovery into unknown lands, seeking not for new territory but for new knowledge. It should appeal to those with a good sense of adventure.
Frederick Sanger
Truth and understanding are not such wares as to be monopolized and traded in by tickets and statutes and standards. We must not think to make a staple commodity of all the knowledge in the land, to mark and license it like our broadcloth and our woolpacks.
John Milton
I kiss him as the train slides into unlit, uncertain land. I kiss him for as long as I want, for longer than I should, given that my brother sits three feet away from me.
Veronica Roth
I have feelings that are to the right, and I have feelings that land on the left side of the aisle. The thing is if you have 10 views that land you on the left side of the aisle and two views that land you on the right side of the aisle, then people just put you on the right side of the aisle. I’m not sure why.
Adam Carolla
Can you row?” the Sheep asked, handing her a pair of knitting-needles as she spoke. “Yes, a little–but not on land–and not with needles–” Alice was beginning to say.
Lewis Carroll
If I am proud of anything, it is that I have been granted the privilege of living in the land which God promised our forefathers to give us, as it is written.
Shmuel Yosef Agnon
The covenant between Jews and God was conditional on their respect for human rights. The reason they were expelled from the land was that they were more interested in money and power and treated the poor and aliens with contempt.
Stephen Sizer
The best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation.
Jimmy Carter
it is my belief that one should learn patience in a foreign land, for I take it that this is the true measure of travel. If one does not suffer some frustration of the ordinary reflexes, how can one be sure one is really traveling?
Gertrude Diamant
Every land or property owner in America would be tickled to death to pay 45 per cent of his profits, if he didn’t have to pay anything if he didn’t make it.
Will Rogers
By the laws of the land, people who come looking for jobs in America are illegal. But by the laws of economics, they are following the logic and laws of economics when they leave Guatemala and go to Mexico, leave Mexico and come to the U.S., leave Africa and go to Spain and Europe looking for jobs.
Benjamin Barber
I’m waxed clean – hairless as the day as I was born. But don’t say ‘Tia has no pubic hair.’ That’s so clinical. Use a nice euphemism. Say ‘She’s mowed her secret garden’ or ‘She’s cleared the way to the Promised Land.’ Because that’s what it is, right?
Tia Carrere
Only the family, society’s smallest unit, can change and yet maintain enough continuity to rear children who will not be ‘strangers in a strange land,’ who will be rooted firmly enough to grow and adapt.
Salvador Minuchin
If you want to build a boat, do not instruct the men to saw wood, stitch the sails, prepare the tools and organize the work, but make them long for setting sail and travel to distant lands.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The 6th of August in the morning we saw an opening in the land and we ran into it, and anchored in 7 and a half fathom water, 2 miles from the shore, clean sand.
William Dampier
TNC was once limited by the resources it could directly marshal to buy land. But teaching people a new idea is incredibly more scalable.
Ramez Naam
The rapids beat below the boat Deep in the heart of the land Feel the pulse of the river in the pulse at your throat Deep in the heart of the land.
Lynn Culbreath Noel
Far out of sight forever stands the sea,
Bounding the land with pale tranquillity.
Yvor Winters
And then came a time when I could no longer say ‘We,’ and I found myself in a lonesome land where no one remembered that I had ever been young, or called me by my given name.
Candace Wheeler
That’s the only place in all the lands we’ve ever heard of that we don’t want to see any closer; and that’s the one place we’re trying to get to! And that’s just where we can’t get, nohow.
J. R. R. Tolkien
In the luxuriance of a bowl of grapes set out in ritual display, in a bottle of wine, the soil and sunshine of California reached millions for whom that distant place would henceforth be envisioned as a sun-graced land resplendent with the goodness of the fruitful earth.
Kevin Starr
May the light of freedom, coming to all darkened lands, flame brightly – until at last the darkness is no more.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
The Irish turned in on themselves and bid up their own land prices in the most extraordinary ways… The Irish people stepped in and guaranteed the banks, and committed to repay sums they can’t afford to repay, and essentially committed themselves to generations of suffering.
Michael Lewis
One good thing about TV Land is you’re always surrounded by people who know what they’re doing, in terms of your fellow actors.
Wayne Knight
I wonder if politicians know less about the land, now that they campaign by air.
Andre Dubus
The nation is in a death-struggle. It must either become one vast slaveocracy of petty tyrants, or wholly the land of the free.
Angelina Grimke
I’m attached to my land in Pantelleria as if I’d inherited it. Acting is my job, Pantelleria is my home.
Carole Bouquet
My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Again let us dream where the land lies sunny And live, like the bees, on our hearts’ old honey, Away from the world that slaves for money– Come, journey the way with me.
Madison Cawein
The brutal history of colonialism is one in which white people literally stole land and people for their own gain and material wealth.
Patrisse Cullors
There is a land that I can go to
When I have time to rest.
All the people I love are there
And those who love me best.
Marianne Faithfull
The major fortunes in America have been made in land.
John D. Rockefeller
They say I’m famous for my chip shots. Sure, when I hit ’em right, they land just so, like a butterfly with sore feet.
Lee Trevino
Had drugs been decriminalized, crack would never have been invented and there would today be fewer addicts… The ghettos would not be drug-and-crime-infested no-man’s lands… Colombia, Bolivia and Peru would not be suffering from narco-terror, and we would not be distorting our foreign policy because of it.
Milton Friedman
The process of growth is obviously critical to my understanding of the land and myself. So the process is far more unpredictable with far more compromises with the day, the weather, the material.
Andy Goldsworthy
The land is ours. It’s not European and we have taken it, we have given it to the rightful people… Those of white extraction who happen to be in the country and are farming are welcome to do so, but they must do so on the basis of equality.
Robert Mugabe
The test of any good fiction is that you should care something for the characters; the good to succeed, the bad to fail. The trouble with most fiction is that you want them all to land in hell, together, as quickly as possible.
Mark Twain
Poetry is the gate through which I enter the land of enchantment. Once inside the flaming wall, my limitations fall from me, and my spirit is free.
Helen Keller
Without the rich – without those who accumulated capital – those poor who could exist at all would be very much poorer indeed, scratching a livelihood from marginal lands on which every drought would kill most of the children they would be trying to raise.
Friedrich August von Hayek
Daughter of Eve from the far land of Spare Oom where eternal summer reigns around the bright city of War Drobe, how would it be if you came and had tea with me?
C. S. Lewis
The land is not old. It only changes, becoming one thing and the next. We are the ones who ascribe age, the brevity of our lives demanding a beginning, middle and end.
Craig Childs
True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.
Clarence Darrow
Conservation means development as much as it does protection. I recognize the right and duty of this generation to develop and use the natural resources of our land; but I do not recognize the right to waste them, or to rob, by wasteful use, the generations that come after us.
Theodore Roosevelt
One thing I’ve learned from my short time trying to be a farmer is that our farmers have to be the bravest, most optimistic people in the world. To go back to the land year after year, after what nature throws at them and the world economy does to their income, takes a special kind of person.
Sara Henderson
Among the noblest in the land – Though man may count himself the least – That man I honor and revere, Who without favor, without fear, In the great city dares to stand, The friend of every friendless beast.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The paper tiger hero, James Bond, offering the whites a triumphant image of themselves, is saying what many whites want desperately to hear reaffirmed: I am still the White Man, lord of the land, licensed to kill, and the world is still an empire at my feet.
Eldridge Cleaver
Being on sea saile, being on land settle.
[Being on sea, sail; being on land, settle.]
George Herbert
Life is given to you like a flat piece of land and everything has to be done. I hope that when I am finished, my piece of land will be a beautiful garden, so there is a lot of work.
Jeanne Moreau
The spirit of the great outdoors and the spirit of America is freedom – let’s keep freedom alive by preventing woke bureaucrats from trampling on property rights with more land grabs.
Lauren Boebert
I believe that agriculture land – productive agricultural land with water on site – will be valuable in the future.
Michael Burry
Let no one mistake it for comedy, farcical though it may be in all its details. It serves notice on the country that Neanderthal man is organizing in these forlorn backwaters of the land, led by a fanatic, rid of sense and devoid of conscience.
H. L. Mencken
The budget should be balanced, the treasury refilled, public debt reduced, the arrogance of officialdom tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
It is hope which makes the shipwrecked sailor strike out with his arms in the midst of the sea, though no land is in sight.
Ovid
I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side… Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.
Robert Byrd
And in fact I don’t believe there is such a thing as a definitive picture of something. The land is a living, breathing thing and light changes its character every second of every day. That’s why I love it so much.
Fay Godwin
There is a great fear of our Union – a fear that I do not fully understand, but that I know is present…What is it that causes some men to act so hastily and so cruelly? It cannot be that we are so powerful. Is it so much to ask that the poorest people of the land have a measure of justice?
Cesar Chavez
Yes, I know,’ interrupted Puddleglum. ‘And few return to the sunlit lands. You needn’t say it again. You are a chap of one idea, aren’t you?
C. S. Lewis
Gradually the sunken land begins to rise again, and falls perhaps again, and rises again after that, more and more gently each time, till as it were the panting earth, worn out with the fierce passions of her fiery youth, has sobbed herself to sleep once more, and this new world of man is made.
Charles Kingsley
Before agriculture was invented, land was not a resource. Before oil drilling and nuclear fission were invented, petroleum and uranium were not resources.
Robert Zubrin
I discovered that Human Nature was not, as I had always supposed, a fixed and unalterable entity, that wars are not caused by a natural urge in men to fight, that ownership of land and factories is not necessarily the natural reward of greater wisdom and energy.
Jessica Mitford
All the people who live in the West Bank are Israelis, they’re not Palestinians. There is no ‘Palestinian.’ This is Israeli land.
Rick Santorum
The moon grew full, then slowly pared itself down until it shriveled into a ghostly boat riding above the roiling dark. Then it fell out of the sky. They climbed into it, left land behind, and floated out to sea.
Patricia A. McKillip
Leno, Conan. They are both really funny. They really know how to land one.
Jimmy Fallon
When I was a kid, ‘Land of the Lost’ was my favorite show, just because it was – in the landscape of Saturday morning cartoons – it was so unique. It was a live-action show and kids were in it, these creatures, these Sleestaks and dinosaurs. Every week was a different adventure. I couldn’t wait. I loved it so much.
Will Ferrell
Don’t complain. The Israelites wasted forty years murmuring and complaining in the wilderness, when they could have just obeyed God and entered into their Promised Land.
Joyce Meyer
The people know what the land knows.
Carl Sandburg
If he does not plant the field that was given over to him as a garden, if it be arable land, the gardener shall pay the owner the produce of the field for the years that he let it lie fallow, according to the product of neighboring fields, put the field in arable condition and return it to its owner.
Hammurabi
I pressed my father’s hand and told him I would protect his grave with my life. My father smiled and passed away to the spirit land.
Chief Joseph
My father was in real estate, banking, and land management. As family life, it was very conventional, happy, and comfortable. We weren’t wealthy, but we were well-off.
Julia Child
If somebody here in America is against war crime and against stealing lands from Palestinians by Jews, he’s already not allowed into Israel.
Udi Aloni
May those principles, which were so honorably and nobly defended, namely, the Constitution of our land, by our fathers, be established forever.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
The world of sports knows no religious, racial or political differences. Athletes, from whatever land they come, speak the same language. The lessons of competition are lessons for life.
Robert Kennedy
Dreams are our only geography—our native land.
Dejan Stojanovic
Cyrus Pembridge, the Never Land’s captain, was widely regarded as the most incompetent man to comman a ship since the formation of water. “Who in the name of common sense would put to sea on that ship with that man in charge?” wondered Mack. “Well,” Alf answered, “we are.” “True,” Mack said.
Dave Barry
When I was fourteen years old, our family drove all the way from Vancouver to Newfoundland and back. I’ve been all across the great land of Canada. I absolutely love the Maritimes, and I’m very excited to go back, particularly in the fall when it’s one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
Aaron Douglas
This land is your land, this land is my land, From California to the New York Island. From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters This land was made for you and me.
Woody Guthrie
Objects which are usually the motives of our travels by land and by sea are often overlooked and neglected if they lie under our eye.
Pliny the Younger
No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however spacious it may be, can begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea. And no dolphin who inhabits one of those aquariums or one of those marine lands can be considered normal.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.
Walt Whitman
Your soul is a seeker, lover and artist; shape-shifting through archetypal energy, between your darkness and fields of light, your body and spirit, your heaven and hell, until you land in the moment of sweet surrender; when you, as a dancer, disappear into the dance.
Gabrielle Roth
India knows that the subject of Land is not with the Central Government and the Centre does not require lands. All rights relating to land are with the states.
Narendra Modi
Political freedom cannot exist in any land where religion controls the state, and religious freedom cannot exist in any land where the state controls religion.
Sam Ervin
We never had planned to hijack a ship. We never thought of any war plans outside the Palestinian lands. We wished that the program had not failed and then the warriors could have achieved their goals.
Abu Abbas
Remember, not one penny can we take with us into the unknown land.
Seneca the Younger
Industrialisation is necessary. But acquisition is by no means the only avenue through which it can be achieved. The Cochin Airport is a prime example of this. Instead of choosing to acquire the land, the State asked the private parties to negotiate with the landowners directly. The State merely acted as an arbitrator.
Jairam Ramesh
How much better when the whole land is a garden, and the people have grown up in the bowers of a paradise.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A vote for change is a vote for a stronger, safer, healthier America. A vote for Bush is a vote for a divided, unstable, paranoid America. It is our duty to this beautiful land to let our voices be heard. That’s the reason for the tour. That’s why I’m doing it.
Dave Matthews
Death most resembles a prophet who is without honor in his own land or a poet who is a stranger among his people.
Khalil Gibran
Life is a journey through a foreign land.
O.R. Melling
You need to understand this.В  We did not think we owned the land.В  The land was part of us.В  We didn’t even know about owning the land.В  It is like talking about owning your grandmother – you can’t own your grandmother.В  She just is your grandmother.В  Why would you talk about owning her?
Kent Nerburn
There is a crying need today to have this truth heralded throughout the land that youth especially may appreciate and hold the freedom of the individual as sacred as did our revolutionary fathers.
David O. McKay
Grandma’s on the front porch with a Bible in her hand, sometimes I hear her singing take me to the promised land.
John Mellencamp
Nobody is going to invest a fortune into good orchard land, all the farming equipment necessary, the fertilizer, the seedlings, the nonstop Herculean work effort needed to grow apples, then bring them to the fruit stand for people to take home for free.
Ted Nugent
But the creative person is subject to a different, higher law than mere national law. Whoever has to create a work, whoever has tobring about a discovery or deed which will further the cause of all of humanity, no longer has his home in his native land but rather in his work.
Stefan Zweig
No-man’s land under snow is like the face of the moon: chaotic, crater ridden, uninhabitable, awful, the abode of madness.
Wilfred Owen
The Old Testament teaches us that if we humble ourselves and pray, God will hear from heaven and heal our land. And the New Testament assures us that the fervent prayers of righteous men can make a difference.
David Jeremiah
Malaysia is a country unlike any other: Full of promise and fragility. Its history, cultural and religious diversity make it a rich, compelling and surprising land.
Tariq Ramadan
Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life.
Albert Einstein
My favorite period is when we lived in the land of the three-minute song. The Motown thing – I thought they were genius in knowing that’s as much as a listener can take.
Meshell Ndegeocello
The legacy, the waste, is mostly in international waters that are sort of in no man’s land and thus considered to be no one nation’s problem.
Boyan Slat
Using political power, the elite can induce local authorities to facilitate enclosure and privatisation of land, water, and other hitherto public amenities. And they can pressurise public administrations to cut taxes, reducing financial resources for maintaining the remaining commons.
Guy Standing
The most common trait of all primitive peoples is a reverence for the life-giving earth, and the Native American shared this elemental ethic: The land was alive to his loving touch, and he, its son, was brother to all creatures.
Stewart Udall
The cities drain the country of the best part of its population: the flower of the youth, of both sexes, goes into the towns, andthe country is cultivated by a so much inferior class. The land,–travel a whole day together,–looks poverty-stricken, and the buildings plain and poor.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Germany has solemnly recognized and guaranteed France her frontiers as determined after the Saar plebiscite… We thereby finally renounced all claims to Alsace-Lorraine, a land for which we have fought two great wars.
Adolf Hitler
And I think in your 40s, you land a little bit, physically and mentally, you arrive at a place where you feel you’ve learned some stuff. Having children at that point meant I had something very useful to do for the next 20 years.
Mark Strong
What is likely to vanish – or be transformed beyond recognition – are many of the things we think of when we think of Australia: the barrier reef, the koalas, the sense of the country as a land of almost limitless natural resources.
Jeff Goodell
I stepped on a land mine named Jayson Blair.
Howell Raines
I’d rather grind slow because when it land in my lap and when I get it, it’s going to last longer than just shooting straight to the top and then the plane crashing because I done shot up too fast. I’d rather grind, figure the steps out and stay up there.
Moneybagg Yo
Breathe slumbrous music round me, sweet and slow,To honied phrases set!Into the land of dreams I long to go.Bid me forget!
Mary Elizabeth Coleridge
…as the day wore on I watched the birds all flying in one direction, and said, Land lies there.
Joshua Slocum
A secret combination that seeks to overthrow the freedom of all lands, nations, and countries is increasing in its evil influence and control over America and the entire world.
Ezra Taft Benson
I never wanted to become an actor. I always wanted to be a farmer and dreamt of owning half an acre of agriculture land.
Pawan Kalyan
Bureaucrats live on the fat of the land, while the rest of us stay skinny laboring to pay their salaries.
Charles E. McKenzie
‘Cartel Land’ explores what happens when – in a Mexican society without order, law or security – vendettas, terror, and corruption go hand in hand with the pursuit of a better world.
Matthew Heineman
If we are bold in our thinking, courageous in accepting new ideas, and willing to work with instead of against our land, we shall find in conservation farming an avenue to the greatest food production the world has ever known – not only for the war, but for the peace that is to follow.
Hugh Hammond Bennett
If Jesus can walk on water, can he swim on land?
Bo Burnham
Make sure when you fall you land on your back if you can see you can get up.
Les Brown
People tend to look at dating sort of like a safari – like they’re trying to land the trophy.
Henry Cloud
American life is based on a reassurance that we like one another but won’t violate one another’s privacies. This makes it a land of small talk.
Karan Mahajan
I was thinking about New Mexico, and I rounded the corner in New York, and there was a New Mexico license plate: “New Mexico, land of enchantment.”
William S. Burroughs
The earth will continue to regenerate its life sources only as long as we and all the peoples of the world do our part to conserve its natural resources. It is a responsibility which every human being shares. Through voluntary action, each of us can join in building a productive land in harmony with nature.
Gerald R. Ford
Grab this land! Take it, hold it, my brothers, make it, my brothers, shake it, squeeze it, turn it, twist it, beat it, kick it, kiss it, whip it, stomp it, dig it, plow it, seed it, reap it, rent it, buy it, sell it, own it, build it, multiply it, and pass it on — can you hear me? Pass it on!
Toni Morrison
Furthermore, the spirit of enterprise which had its first intellectual development in England has especially flourished here as well as throughout all of Canada, while the same spirit has become less virile in the land of its origin.
Charles E. Wilson
He sees the land of meaning, and one path to it, and the so-called “normal” people traveling swiftly and in comfort to the land; he does not include the shipwrecked people who arrive by devious lonely routes, and the many who dwell in the land in the beginning.
Janet Frame
The raging monster upon the land is population growth. In its presence, sustainability is but a fragile theoretical construct. To say, as many do, that the difficulties of nations are not due to people, but to poor ideology and land-use management is sophistic.
Pete Wilson
Is woman a lost sex? If so, is she the only lost sex? Has woman alone conceived all the vipers in our land?
Elizabeth Hawes
In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king.
Efren Ramirez
Your real self – the ‘I am I’ – is master of this land, the ruler of this empire. You rightfully have power and dominion over it, all its inhabitants, and all contained in its realm.
Robert Collier
Those who do not know the plans of competitors cannot prepare alliances. Those who do not know the lay of the land cannot maneuver their forces. Those who do not use local guides cannot take advantage of the ground.
Sun Tzu
When ever Buddhism has taken root in a new land, there has been a certain variation in the style in which it is observed. The Buddha himself taught differently according to the place, the occasion and the situation of those who were listening to him.
Dalai Lama
In New York I heard A Piece of Ground, written by a white South African, Jeremy Taylor. I modified it a little and sang it myself. That song is very special to me because it deals with the land question in southern Africa. We were dispossessed of our land.
Miriam Makeba
If we drill the hell out of everything, including protected public lands and fragile regions like the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, America can emerge as an ‘energy superpower.’
Jeff Goodell
She envied Ralph his dying, for if one were thinking of rest that was the most perfect of all. To cease utterly, to give it all up and not know anything more — this idea was as sweet as the vision of a cool bath in a marble tank, in a darkened chamber, in a hot land.
Henry James
We must become Icelanders in soccer, Israelis in defending our land, Japanese in technology.
Volodymyr Zelensky
This (America) is a land of rich diversity, from the towering skyscrapers of Manhatan all the way to the towering mounds of garbage piled up next to the towering skyscrapers of Manhattan.
Dave Barry
Cherry-ripe, ripe, ripe, I cry,
Full and fair ones; come and buy.
If so be you ask me where
They do grow, I answer: There,
Where my Julia’s lips do smile;
There’s the land, or cherry-isle,
Whose plantations fully show
All the year where cherries grow.
Robert Herrick
History casts its shadow far into the land of song.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The Earthworm plows the whole world with his tunnels, drains and aerates the earth… If you ever buy any land, be sure it has plenty of Earthworms toiling and moiling all day so that you can sit down and relax.
Will Cuppy
That boom town [Abu Dhabi] proved to be the reef against which my family crashed, the story of many who seek the promised land, and my poetry is a versification of that personal history. History is all I have.
Andre Naffis-Sahely
Irrigation of the land with seawater desalinated by fusion power is ancient. It’s called rain.
Mike McAlary
Neither Italian fascism nor German national “socialism” have anything in common with such a [Soviet socialistic] society, primarily because private ownership of factories, plants, lands, banks, means of transportation, etc., remain untouched there, and, therefore, capitalism in Germany and Italy remains in full force.
Joseph Stalin
All the territorial possessions of all the political establishments in the earth–including America, of course– consist of pilferings from other people’s wash. No tribe, howsoever insignificant, and no nation, howsoever mighty occupies a foot of land that was not stolen.
Mark Twain
Generally, the view that I’ve had on Twitter is if you’re on Twitter, you’re in, like, the meme – you’re in meme war land. If you’re on Twitter, you’re in the arena. And so, essentially, if you attack me, it is therefore OK for me to attack back.
Elon Musk
The lands granted were in the occupancy of savages and situated in a wilderness, of which the government had never taken possession, and of which it could not with its own citizens ever have taken possession.
William H. Wharton
My family lived off the land and summer evening meals featured baked stuffed tomatoes, potato salad, corn on the cob, fresh shelled peas and homemade ice cream with strawberries from our garden. With no air conditioning in those days, the cool porch was the center of our universe after the scorching days.
David Mixner
I rise in support of a Canada in which liberties are safeguarded, rights are protected and the people of this land are treated as equals under the law.
Paul Martin
It seems that the whole world is beginning to decay, and that its putrefaction has chosen to spread outward from here, from the land of the Pashtuns, where desertification proceeds at a steady, implacable crawl even in the consciences and intellects of men.
Yasmina Khadra
Our national conservation effort must include the complete spectrum of resources: air, water, and land; fuels, energy, and minerals; soils, forests, and forage; fish and wildlife. Together they make up the world of nature which surrounds us- of the American heritage.
John F. Kennedy
Here’s to the man
Who owns the land
That bears the grapes
That makes the wine
That tastes as good
As this does.
Omar Khayyam
Rebellion in this land shall lose his sway, meeting the check of such another day.
William Shakespeare
Wisedome hath one foot on Land, and another on Sea.
George Herbert
All writers are exiles wherever they live and their work is a lifelong journey towards the lost land.
Janet Frame
The land wants you here. I want you here,” you called. “Don’t you care about that at all?
Lucy Christopher
A single thought can revolutionize your life as it did mine. A single thought can make you rich or it can land you in prison for the rest of your life.
Earl Nightingale
All land, no matter what has happened to it, has over it a grace, an absolutely persistent beauty.
Robert Adams
Does not the passage of Moses and the Israelites into the Holy Land yield incomparably more poetic variety than the voyages of Ulysses or Aeneas?
Abraham Cowley
In front, the sun climbs slow, how slowly, but westward, look, the land is bright.
Arthur Hugh Clough
What we lose in our great human exodus from the land is a rooted sense, as deep and intangible as religious faith, of why we need to hold on to the wild and beautiful places that once surrounded us.
Barbara Kingsolver
What would this country be without this great land of ours.
Ronald Reagan
What can you do with me? My jannah is in my heart! If you take me to jail, I will make zikr of Allah. If you exile me out of my land, I will make takaffur. If you execute me, I would be a shaheed. What can you do with me? Because I am not limited to this dunya. I am living for al-akhira!
Ibn Taymiyyah
I believe in geographic cures – they allow you to throw all your cards in the air and see where they land, then pick them back up and deal them again.
Jerri Nielsen
There are many things in life more worthwhile than money. One is to be brought up in this our England which is still the envy of less happy lands.
Alfred Denning, Baron Denning
I am quite confident that in the foreseeable future armed conflict will not take the form of huge land armies facing each other across extended battle lines, as they did in World War I and World War II or, for that matter, as they would have if NATO had faced the Warsaw Pact on the field of battle.
Norman Schwarzkopf
In Harlem, black was white. You had rights that could not be denied you; you had privileges, protected by law. And you had money. Everybody in Harlem had money. It was a land of plenty.
Rudolph Fisher
Human cruelty took the form of a pact with the deity. A solemn oath was made to kill everything, in which people forbade themselves any display of reason or compassion. A city or a land was devoted to destruction and it was believed an insult to God if one did not observe the abominable oath.
Ernest Renan
The problem, then, is how to bring about a striving for harmony with land among a people many of whom have forgotten there is any such thing as land, among whom education and culture have become almost synonymous with landlessness. This is the problem of conservation education.
Aldo Leopold
And wonder, dread and war have lingered in that land where loss and love in turn have held the upper hand.
Simon Armitage
Nobody disputes that cheap natural gas would be a good thing for the economy. The question is, is this a sustainable new development that can be counted on for decades to come, or simply a ‘bubble’ brought on by a land grab and drilling frenzy?
Jeff Goodell
Imperialism leaves behind germs of rot which we must clinically detect and remove from our land but from our minds as well.
Frantz Fanon
When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.
Desmond Tutu
When a plane lands in the Hudson and there’s a Twitter user on the ferry taking a picture of it, Boom. That’s it. The water is still splashing. Here’s the photo of the thing.
Biz Stone
Being an Indian means living with the land. And the only way we’ll be able to do that is to gain our freedom.
Russell Means
One thing I fail to understand in Delhi is how the same parties which as State Governments seek amendments to the Land Acquisition law, suddenly become opponents of the amendments when they are sitting in Delhi.
Narendra Modi
The early American arrived at a land of which he knew nothing
Francis Parker Yockey
The balance and patience factors are much more critical in surfing than they are in snowboarding … if you’re out surfing serious waves and you wipe out, you don’t land on soft snow. It’s usually either very sharp coral, or you get raked across the beach gravel and sand while you’re tumbling underwater.
Frederick Lenz
Compliments are the helium that fills everyone’s balloon; they elevate the person receiving them so he or she can fly over life’s troubles and land safely on the other side.
Bernie Siegel
The kings of Spain brought us the conquistadores and masters, whose footprints remained in the circular land grants assigned to those searching for gold in the sands of rivers, an abusive and shameful form of exploitation, traces of which can be noted from the air in many places around the country.
Fidel Castro
I am fifty-two years of age. I am a bishop in the Anglican Church, and a few people might be constrained to say that I was reasonably responsible. In the land of my birth I cannot vote…
Desmond Tutu
I participated with great honor in becoming one of the first to land on the moon, and now I am devoting and have devoted many years of my life to enabling Americans to lead international nations to permanence on the planet Mars.
Buzz Aldrin
Today’s president, CEO or managing director needs to be a disruptive influence with imagination, vision, and courage to lead the organization into new and dangerous territory. The leader must be an entrepreneurial driver who can inspire the team to boldly venture into uncharted lands.
Paul Sloane
The earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.
Pope John Paul II
How about that oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico. And you know, the oil slick is going everywhere. So the next time somebody lands on the Hudson, it won’t be that big a deal.
David Letterman
Urbanization has relied on land conversion and land financing, which is causing urban sprawl and, on occasion, ghost towns and waste.
Sri Mulyani Indrawati
I mean by a picture a beautiful romantic dream of something that never was, never will be – in a light better than any light that ever shone – in a land no one can define, or remember, only desire
Edward Burne-Jones
We have a saying in Germany. It is better to have loved and lost than to engage in a land war with Russia in the winter.
Heidi Klum
It’s fun as hell to fall and to not get something and then to finally land it. That’s like pursuing a girl that said no a hundred times and she finally say yeah.
Lil Wayne
If I meet Putin, I’ll say to him: ‘So you’ve finally given us back our territory, how much more are you ready to give as compensation money for taking away our land and helping those who took part in the escalation in Crimea and Donbass?’
Volodymyr Zelensky
Everything in life is unusual until you get accustomed to it -The Scarecrow – The Marvellous Land Of Oz by L. Frank Baum pg 103 chapter 13
L. Frank Baum
Cain slew Abel. On that much the Torah and the Bible and the Qur’an agree, although in the Qur’an these first sons of Adam and Eve are Qabeel and Habeel. Cain, which is to say Qabeel, wandered eastwards from Eden to the Land of Nod with a mark of some kind on him, a curse.
Terry Glavin
Profit is vital to human well-being. Profit is the payment to entrepreneurs just as wages are payments to labor, interest to capital and rent to land. In order to earn profits in free markets, entrepreneurs must identify and satisfy human wants and do so in a way that economizes on society’s scarce resources.
Walter E. Williams
Emmy Lou Harris introduced me to the work of the Vietnam Veterans of America foundation and the Campaign for a Land Mine Free World.
Mary Chapin Carpenter
I feel that our country’s real heroes are our brave soldiers who leave their families to protect our land.
Sonu Sood
It always gives me great pleasure to be surrounded by the beautiful children of our land. Whenever I am with the energetic young people … I feel like a recharged battery, confident that our country can look forward to great things.
Nelson Mandela
I am interested in the way that we look at a given landscape and take possession of it in our blood and brain. None of us lives apart from the land entirely; such an isolation is unimaginable.
N. Scott Momaday
I believe that we now have a duty to remove the aggressor from our land and to regain the Arab territory occupied by the Israelis. We can then engage in a clandestine struggle to liberate the land of Palestine, to liberate Haifa and Jaffa.
Gamal Abdel Nasser
Take my love, take my land Take me where I cannot stand I don’t care, I’m still free You can’t take the sky from me Take me out to the black Tell them I ain’t comin’ back Burn the land and boil the sea You can’t take the sky from me There’s no place I can be Since I found Serenity But you can’t take the sky from me.
Joss Whedon
What can bombs know of the illuminated fields so golden with heaven in your heart’s sacred lands?
Aberjhani
Man begets, but land does not beget.
Cecil Rhodes
I did not know how to reach him, how to catch up with him… The land of tears is so mysterious.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Art is like a kite. You have to pull the string hard in order to stretch it to its limit, but you don’t want to pull it so hard that you break the thread, because the thread connects you to the land and its peoples.
Wu Guanzhong
We must not disguise from ourselves that we go to found a city among strangers and enemies, and he who undertakes such an enterprise should be prepared to become master of the country the first day he lands, or failing in this find everything hostile to him.
Thucydides
I was a kid that loved reptiles and eventually started an organization dedicated to saving turtles and tortoises, called the Turtle Conservancy, where we protect land and basically do species conservation around the world.
Eric Goode
I have behind me not only the splendid traditions and the annals of more than a thousand years but the living strength and majesty of the Commonwealth and Empire; of societies old and new; of lands and races different in history and origins but all, by God’s Will, united in spirit and in aim.
Queen Elizabeth II
I am not one of those who left the land to the mercy of its enemies. Their flattery leaves me cold, my songs are not for them to praise.
Anna Akhmatova
Our company has only been active in Beijing and Shanghai, two very market-dominated cities. This was an advantage. Land is purchased here in public auctions, in a transparent way. When you do real estate development outside Beijing and Shanghai it is good to have “guanxi” – good relations within the local government.
Zhang Xin
But as in landlessness alone resides the highest truth, shoreless, indefinite as God – so better is it to perish in that howling infinite, than be ingloriously dashed upon the lee, even if that were safety! For worm-like, then, oh! who would craven crawl to land!
Herman Melville
If vitality gives a man’s perspectives color, if community bonds give them breadth, if awareness of the land makes them realistic, a deep sense of loyalty gives them personal meaning and integrity.
Harry Ransom
There are compelling reasons to implement a true America First immigration plan, starting with border security. We are a land of immigrants. Immigration, with assimilation, has generally been good for America.
Niger Innis
I’m a firm believer that in-depth subjects can be better handled in a fantasy setting. … Let’s face it, traveling to some far off land is a terrific way to break the mold, to do something different. Isn’t that why we go on vacations?
Jim Starlin
Making an open stand against all the ungodliness and unrighteousness which overspreads our land as a flood is one of the noblest ways of confessing Christ in the face of His enemies.
John Wesley
We will not be caught in no man’s land.
Masai Ujiri
One’s native land!?there should one live! there die!
Jules Verne
You who so plod amid serious things that you feel it shame to give yourself up even for a few short moments to mirth and joyousness in the land of Fancy; you who think that life hath not to do with innocent laughter that can harm no one; these pages are not for you.
Howard Pyle
History is the land-mark by which we are directed into the true course of life.
Marcus Garvey
I am still doing my due diligence. A vote on a Supreme Court nominee is a lifetime appointment and when the court decides, it is the law of the land.
Bob Menendez
Most people today still believe, perhaps unconsciously, in the heliocentric universe every newspaper in the land has a section on astrology, yet few have anything at all on astronomy.
Hannes Alfven
The true peace of God begins at any spot a thousand miles from the nearest land.
Joseph Conrad
In the years just after 9/11, even being breathed on by a suspected terrorist could land you in extralegal detention for the rest of your life.
Matt Taibbi
The only ones who ever come here from your lands are the minstrels, and the lovers, and the mad. And you don’t look like much of a minstrel, and you’re— pardon me for saying so lad, but it’s true— ordinary as cheese crumbs. So it’s love if you ask me.
Neil Gaiman
Now that we have a democracy and you can go back and the airport air is not laden with evil any more, you can actually breathe oxygen when you land in Johannesburg.
Janet Suzman
For a short time we lived quietly. But this could not last. White men had found gold in the mountains around the land of winding water.
Chief Joseph
Promised Lands was a better book in my opinion, and it’s still my mother’s favorite of the three I’ve done, but I doubt anyone who isn’t a blood relative has ever heard of it. Which is to say expectations aren’t worth much in the book world.
Elizabeth Crook
Our armies do not come into your cities and lands as conquerors or enemies, but as liberators.
Frederick Stanley Maude
In its heyday, Hollywood reflected, if it did not actually produce, the sexual climate of our land.
Anita Loos
When I was growing up, I fetishised New York City. It was the land of Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, it was where Leonard Cohen wrote ‘Chelsea Hotel’, it was CBGBs and all the punk rock clubs. Artists and musicians lived there, and it was cheap and dangerous.
Moby
Competitiveness demands flexibility, choice and openness – or Europe will fetch up in a no-man’s land between the rising economies of Asia and market-driven North America.
David Cameron
Comfort his family with a telegram, we regret to inform you we lost a man, but we gave him the highest medal of the land.
Phil Ochs
My object will be, first, to show by what connections the history of the fossil bones of land animals is linked to the theory of the earth and why they have a particular importance in this respect.
Georges Cuvier
later down the road of life, i made the discovery that salt water was also good for the mental abrasions one inevitably acquires on land.
Jimmy Buffett
In the land of light there is only one currency. The currency of love.
Amit Ray
You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into… the Twilight Zone.
Rod Serling
Venice is a place where the past is still hanging around, waiting for an appointment with the future; but the future hasn’t shown up. In the meantime it is a kind of no man’s land, given up by default and occupied by irregulars and their dogs.
Jack Smith
Anaximander says that men were first produced in fishes, and when they were grown up and able to help themselves were thrown up, and so lived upon the land.
Plutarch
What more delightful avocation than to take a piece of land and by cautious experimentation to prove how it works. What more substantial service to conservation than to practice it on one’s own land?
Aldo Leopold
Take a one way trip down to Larry Land!
Larry Zbyszko
The past is another land, and we cannot go to visit. So, if I say there were dragons, and men who rode upon their backs, who alive has been there and can tell me that I’m wrong?
Cressida Cowell
I wish that every baby everywhere could land in a family that wanted that baby as much as we want ours.
Sharon Creech
Work from home will relieve the pressure on urban infrastructure and land, which can be released for mass housing or public transport, and critical lung space.
Rohini Nilekani
Well, first of all, I grew up in New York City, going to first a public school, then a private school, and when I got to the private school in Manhattan, I learned of what we called ‘The Promised Land,’ which are the Hamptons. I’ve always had an affinity for the Hamptons.
Mark Feuerstein
The religious doctrine of traditional Judaism entails the acceptance of the nationhood of the Jewish people and the everlasting sanctity of the Land of Israel for them.
David Novak
If a person owns a piece of land do they own it all the way down to the core of the earth?
Peter Kay
Rather than setting property taxes on the value of land and improvements, I’d advocate a plan to set rates based on land values across the entire neighborhood.
Mark Noble
Putting isn’t golf, greens should be treated almost the same as water hazards: you land on them, then add two strokes to your score.
Chi Chi Rodriguez
Should not the role of design be to reconnect human beings with their space on their land?
Dan Kiley
Here is the world of imagination, hopes, and dreams. In this timeless land of enchantment, the age of chivalry, magic and make-believe are reborn – and fairy tales come true. Fantasyland is dedicated to the young-in-heart, to those who that when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.
Walt Disney
What the local politicians actually meant was that they hoped to claim the land in the name of the public and then make the usual profits privatizing it. There was a principle at stake. They had to ensure their friends and not outsiders got the benefit.
Michael Moorcock
All who die by the way, whether by land or by sea, or in battle against the pagans, shall have immediate remission of sins. This I grant them through the power of God with which I am invested.
Pope Urban II
Those living in rural areas as well as those with a planning policy remit for those areas have an important responsibility to protect green belt agricultural land for the wider benefit of feeding the UK into the uncertain future that we all face
Phil Harding
Canada emerged as a political entity with boundaries largely determined by the fur trade. These boundaries included a vast north temperate land area extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific and dominated by the Canadian Shield. The present Dominion emerged not in spite of geography but because of it.
Harold Innis
The sea
Severs not only lands but also selves.
Wallace Stevens
A collective tyrant, spread over the length and breadth of the land, is no more acceptable than a single tyrant ensconced on his throne.
Georges Clemenceau
It is a noble land that God has given us: a land that can feed and clothe the world; a land whose coastlines would enclose half the countries of Europe; a land set like a sentinel between the two imperial oceans of the globe.
Albert J. Beveridge
America is a land of opportunity and don’t ever forget it.
Will Rogers
I call
to the spirits of other lands to make fecund my existence
Frank O’Hara
Governor Isaac Stevens of the Washington Territory said there were a great many white people in our country, and many more would come; that he wanted the land marked out so that the Indians and the white man could be separated.
Chief Joseph
I guess that all figures into my approach because once I start hearing the imagination land stuff (that’s my new phrase now I guess) I tend to tune out or start laughing at it like, “Haha, you guys really believe there is a heaven.”
Brad Warner
America, the land of the free, is turning itself into the land of the free ride. [U.S. airlines] are operating in protected markets. They are hoovering up public funds and they still can’t make a profit.
Rod Eddington
[John Brown’s] zeal in the cause of freedom was infinitely superior to mine. Mine was as the taper light, his was as the burning sun… I could speak for the slave. John Brown could fight for the slave.
Frederick Douglass
We grant no dukedoms to the few,
We hold like rights and shall;
Equal on Sunday in the pew,
On Monday in the mall.
For what avail the plough or sail,
Or land, or life, if freedom fail?
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is only one reason for art in America, and that is that the people of America learn the means of expressing themselves in their own time, and their own land.
Robert Henri
During my childhood in Cyprus, the British talked about the Cypriots as if the Cypriots were outsiders in their own country. And even though I was born in Cyprus, my parents were American, and so I was an outsider in the land of my birth.
Angela Bowie
And where was happiness if it sprung not from the soil? Where contentment if it dwelt not near to Nature?
Ellen Glasgow
And in this respect, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been a tragedy, a clash between one very powerful, very convincing, very painful claim over this land and another no less powerful, no less convincing claim.
Amos Oz
India is essentially a karmabhumi (land of duty) in contradistinction to bhogabhumi (land of enjoyment).
Mahatma Gandhi
We fumed and screamed in our mountain nook, mad drunken Americans in the mighty land. We were on the roof of America and all we could do was yell, I guess – across the night.
Jack Kerouac
A land ethic for tomorrow should…stress the oneness of our resources and the live-and-help-live logic of the great chain of life.
Stewart Udall
Never travel by sea when you can go by land.
Cato the Younger
One of the effects of civilization is to diminish the rigour of the application of the law of natural selection. It preserves weakly lives that would have perished in barbarous lands.
Francis Galton
Individual thinkers since the days of Ezekiel and Isaiah have asserted that the despoliation of land is not only inexpedient but wrong. Society, however, has not yet affirmed their belief.
Aldo Leopold
India may be a land of over a 100 problems, but it is also a place for a billion solutions.
Kailash Satyarthi
Will you tell them about that far off and mythical land And how a child to the virgin came? Will you tell them that the reason why we murdered Everything upon the surface of the world Is so we can stand right up and say we did it in his name?
Andy Partridge
If we gave up eating beef we would have roughly 20 to 30 times more land for food than we have now.
James Lovelock
Feudalism made land the measure and the master of all things.
Lord Acton
If it is unpatriotic to tear down the flag, which is a symbol of the country, why isn’t it more unpatriotic to desecrate the country itself-to pollute, despoil and ravage the air, land and sea.
Ralph Nader
Just like a mountain goat climbing very steep and dangerous land to lick salt from the rocks, man also should take high risks to get what he wants!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
My father upon the Abbey stage, before him a raging crowd.
“This Land of Saints,” and then as the applause died out,
“Of plaster Saints;” his beautiful mischievous head thrown back.
William Butler Yeats
It was for Columbus, when the right hour struck, forced and propelled by this fresh life, to reveal the land where these new principles were to be brought, and where the awaited trial of the new civilization was to be made.
Chauncey Depew
It is a pleasure for to sit at ease Upon the land, and safely for to see How other folks are tossed on the seas That with the blustering winds turmoiled be.
Lucretius
Viking women were able to rule kingdoms, divorce husbands, own land, and Vikings were very progressive in terms of the rights of women.
Gabriel Byrne
Don’t go getting mixed up in the business of your betters, or you’ll land in trouble too big for you.
J. R. R. Tolkien
I’ve always wanted to land a 1080, it’s been a beast of a burden for me.
Shaun White
Up rose the wild old winter-king, And shook his beard of snow; “I hear the first young hard-bell ring, ‘Tis time for me to go! Northward o’er the icy rocks, Northward o’er the sea, My daughter comes with sunny locks: This land’s too warm for me!
Charles Godfrey Leland
Any relation to the land, the habit of tilling it, or mining it, or even hunting on it, generates the feeling of patriotism. He who keeps shop on it, or he who merely uses it as a support to his desk and ledger, or to his manufactory, values it less.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Every mother is like Moses. She does not enter the promised land. She prepares a world she will not see.
Pope Paul VI
Time passed. Art came off the walls and became rituals. Ritual became religion. Religion spawned science. Science led to big business. And big business, if it continues on its present, mindless trajectory, could land those lucky enough to survive its ultimate legacy back into caves again.
Tom Robbins
If you look at the attached plot you will see that the land also shows the 1940s blip (as I’m sure you know). So, if we could reduce the ocean blip by, say, 0.15 degC, then this would be significant for the global mean—but we’d still have to explain the land blip.
Tom Wigley
To those of my race who depend on bettering their condition in a foreign land or who underestimate the importance of cultivating friendly relations with the Southern white man, who is their next-door neighbor, I would say ‘Cast down your bucket where you are.’
Booker T. Washington
BBC Radio is a never-never land of broadcasting, a safe haven from commercial considerations, a honey pot for every scholar and every hare-brained nut to stick a finger into.
Morley Safer
Where others fear trade and economic growth, we see opportunities for creating new wealth and undreamed-of opportunities for millions in our own land and beyond. Where others seek to throw up barriers, we seek to bring them down; where others take counsel of their fears, we follow our hopes.
Ronald Reagan
[Let] the poor the needy and oppressed of the Earth, and those who want Land, resort to the fertile lands of our western country, the second land of Promise, and there dwell in peace, fulfilling the first and great commandment.
George Washington
As I have said for many years throughout this land, we’re borrowing money from China to buy oil from the Persian Gulf to burn it in ways that destroy the future of human civilization. Every bit of that has to change.
Al Gore
If you want to bowl a yorker, you have to land it; if you want to bowl a bouncer you have to be on the money.
Dale Steyn
But the issue has to do with land, which is our land.
Bashar al-Assad
The Palestinian people do not beg the world for a state, and the state can’t be created through decisions and initiatives. States liberate their land first and then the political body can be established.
Ismail Haniyeh
I was a girl in a land where rifles are fired in celebration of a son, while daughters are hidden away behind a curtain, their role in life simply to prepare food and give birth to children.
Malala Yousafzai
I have long believed these types of collaborative agreements are a far better approach to federal land management than the contentious battles that too often sidetrack proper resource management.
Michael K. Simpson
The main consideration with those who, possessing some capital, propose to emigrate as the means of improving their condition, is, the society likely to be found in the land fixed on for their future residence.
Charles Sturt
Tell the people of all lands Let’s get together the future is in our hands. United nations have to agree To say no to war, and yes to peace.
Country Joe McDonald
All of the land of Israel is ours.
Yitzhak Shamir
Certain management policies-stretching of credit resources, for example-may lead to great progress in good conditions; but, like the Grand Prix car in comparison with the Land Rover, they may not be robust enough to survive when the going gets tough.
Anthony Stafford Beer
If an alien lands on your front lawn and extends an appendage as a gesture of greeting, before you get friendly, toss it an eightball. If the appendage explodes, then the alien was probably made of antimatter. If not, then you can proceed to take it to your leader.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
What is realisation? Realisation is my conscious and constant sailing with my Inner Pilot in His Golden Boat towards the uncharted land, where sooner than at once beauty, divinity and Immortality seeds grow into the richest harvest.
Sri Chinmoy
Rihanna and makeup gets me into LaLa Land.
Nelsan Ellis
On this land, Muslims, Christians and Jews can coexist together, as they have – as they had for the – for hundreds of years in the framework of a democratic state.
Hassan Nasrallah
Donald Trump is appealing to, that whole expression, everybody who asked me, why is Trump able to win in those 16 people? There’s a whole expression. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. I’m not very good at prognosticating but I would not be surprised if he’s the nominee.
Joe Biden
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; on those who lived in a land of deep shadow a light has shone. For the yoke that was weighing upon them and the burden upon their shoulders, thou hast broken in pieces O God.
Isaiah
The key to India’s success is its diversity. Our diversity is the core that makes us so unique. In this land we find a mix of states and regions, religions, languages, cultures, lifestyles and much more. We are so different and yet so similar and united.
Ram Nath Kovind
Into the bosom of the one great sea Flow streams that come from the hills on every side, Their names are various as their springs And thus in every land do men bow down To one great God, though known by many names.
Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan
Thou little bird, thou dweller by the sea, Why takest thou its melancholy voice, And with that boding cry Along the waves dost thou fly? Oh! rather, bird, with me Through this fair land rejoice!
Richard Henry Dana, Jr.
I believe that every child in this world needs to have a relationship with the land…to know how to nourish themselves…and to know how to connect with the community around them.
Alice Waters
Everyone wants a piece of land. It’s the only sure investment. It can never depreciate like a car or a washing machine. Land will double its value in ten years. In less than that. Land is going up every day.
Sam Shepard
No matter who comes to Belarusian land, I will fight. Even if it is Putin.
Alexander Lukashenko
During an earthquake it sometimes happens that fresh springs break out in dry places which water and quicken the land so that plants can grow. In the same way the shattering experiences of suffering can cause the living water to well up in a human heart.
Sadhu Sundar Singh
The Land of Faery, Where nobody gets old and godly and grave, Where nobody gets old and crafty and wise, Where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue.
William Butler Yeats
Time will come; we will plant trees to other planets! I see the orange trees and the cherries in the far lands beyond the earth.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
We are men and women from many lands, representing a rich variety of cultures. And we have been brought together to work in a great common cause: the survival and progress of mankind. The concept of unity in diversity … underlies our various pursuits at the United Nations.

If a queen bee were crossed with a Friesian bull, would not the land flow with milk and honey?
Oliver St. John
The Arabs of the land of Israel [ Palestinians] have only one functionleft to them — to run away.
David Ben-Gurion
That the equalization of property exercises an influence on political society was clearly understood even by some of the old legislators. Laws were made by Solon and others prohibiting an individual from possessing as much land as he pleased.
Aristotle
Energy companies, such as Chevron and Shell, and oil producing countries, such as Kuwait and Venezuela, pump crude oil from their vast land holdings and sell it on the world market.
Gary Miller
Wars of small kingdoms and forgotten lands, what do chessmen dream of in the dark?
Keri Hulme
The interesting thing is, while we die of diseases of affluence from eating all these fatty meats, our poor brethren in the developing world die of diseases of poverty, because the land is not used now to grow food grain for their families.
Jeremy Rifkin
You have within yourself the answer to every question you propose – if you only knew how to look for it. In the Land of the spirit, you cannot walk by the light of someone else’s lamp. You want to borrow mine. I’d rather teach you how to make your own.
Anthony de Mello
In Central Virginia, farmers are some of our strongest conservationists. They understand the complex ecosystems they inhabit, and they cherish the role they play as stewards of the land.
Abigail Spanberger
GMOs could really land us in trouble
Colin Tudge
Who ordained that a few should have the land of Britain as a perquisite, who made 10,000 people owners of the soil and the rest of us trespassers in the land of our birth?
David Lloyd George
On the wings of lies, man can only fly to the land of shame and lowness!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I who have set my heart on watching over the soul, in union with Good Thought, and as knowing the rewards of Mazda Ahura for our works, will, while I have power and strength, teach men to seek after Right. I have become an alien in a foreign land.
Zoroaster
There seemed to be nothing to see; no fences, no creeks or trees, no hills or fields. If there was a road, I could not make it out in the faint starlight. There was nothing but land: not a country at all, but the material out of which countries are made.
Willa Cather
But you can’t start. Only a baby can start. You and me – why, we’re all that’s been. The anger of a moment, the thousand pictures, that’s us. This land, this red land, is us; and the flood years and the dust years and the drought years are us. We can’t start again.
John Steinbeck
I do still get shocked every once in a while when I catch my reflection when I’m walking past a glass building, but it’s in my mind about getting older and finding out what I’m going to look like as it unfolds – or as it folds, depending on where the marks and scars land.
Dave Matthews
To a wise man, the whole earth is open; for the native land of a good soul is the whole earth.
Democritus
Stories of a mythical angel paradise called an Angelopolis are like Peter Pan’s Never Never Land.
Danielle Trussoni
My work is an act of communication, and it’s important to me the way what I assert lands, and where it lands within someone who sees it. On the other hand, I also recognize fully and live by the principle that once the work leaves my studio, I cannot control the effects it has.
Adrian Piper
The land gets inside of us; and we must decide one way or another what this means, what we will do about it.
Barry Lopez
Buying land is not like buying antique. It is not the only deal available.
Li Ka-shing
How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them? Every part of the earth is sacred to my people.
Chief Seattle
For four hundred years the blacks of Haiti had yearned for peace. for three hundred years the island was spoken of as a paradise of riches and pleasures, but that was in reference to the whites to whom the spirit of the land gave welcome. Haiti has meant split blood and tears for blacks.
Zora Neale Hurston
As in, I think ‘Badlands’ is one of the funniest films of all time: “Every day I wish I was carried off to a magical land, but that never happened” is one of the funniest lines in any film.
Richard Ayoade
The earth doesn’t care where death occurs. …It’s the artist, by coming in and writing about it or painting it or taking a photograph of it, that makes the earth powerful and creates death’s memory. Because the land will not remember by itself, but the artist will.
Sally Mann
Every one of us gets to find our way, hopefully surrounded by love, but we still have to pick out our own way through the land mines of life. By accepting this and relinquishing control, there’s just extraordinary beauty.
Ali MacGraw
The Nazi leaders….treated Germany like a conquered land, a colony to be used and abused without consideration, to be exploited to the full, and its national spirit, happiness and wellbeing to be sedulously ignored
Sebastian Haffner
I look back with gladness to the day when I found the path to the land of heart’s desire, and thank Fate ceaselessly with a loud voice that she did not permit the town to sap all the years away while the heart was turning to wind-voices and flower-faces and the hands of kindly earth.
Marion Dudley Cran
Before (the Palestinians) very eyes we are possessing the land and the villages where they and their ancestors have lived We are the generation of colonizers and without the steel helmet and the gun barrel we cannot plant a tree and build a house.
Moshe Dayan
Your task is to conquer yourselves, not ships, lands and castles. This battle is the one in which you especially are to ‘come off conqueror.’ It is fought every day. In fact, it is a continuing process which commenced a long, long time ago.
Neal A. Maxwell
The thing which we speak of as beauty does not have to be sought in distant lands. . . . It is here about us or it is nowhere.
Allen Tucker
I asked a Burmese why women, after centuries of following their men, now walk ahead. He said there were many unexploded land mines since the war.
Robert Mueller
Before you enter the forest, you must leave your mind outside, because in the land of fairy tales there is no need for it!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
There is a reason why the cultures of Indigenous Australia inspire such fascination. And that is that they represent a unique way of thinking about the world. A vision that over tens of thousands of years has risen out of the land, the power, the very being of our continent, Australia.
Kevin Rudd
The Brexiteers promised their supporters wonderful things, almost none of which can ever come true. The billions that London transfers to Brussels will most certainly not land in the budget of the country’s National Health Service. Brexit is going to be very bitter for many of its supporters.
Nicholas Bloom
All our liberties are due to men who, when their conscience has compelled them, have broken the laws of the land.
William Kingdon Clifford
Whatever your objective in life may be, never use violence to get it! Violence belongs to the Land of Evil; once you enter there, your face and your heart is forever sealed with the devilish ugliness of the violence!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
The city is as large as Seville or Cordova; its streets, I speak of the principal ones, are very wide and straight; some of these, and all the inferior ones, are half land and half water, and are navigated by canoes.
Hernan Cortes
If you want to save the natural environment, you just use nuclear. You grow more food on less land, and people live in cities. It’s not rocket science.

Strictly speaking, the land does not exist; it is merely dehydrated sea.
Alan Coren
There was a time when all dark-skinned people were called Ethiopians, for the Greeks referred to Africa as, ‘The Land Of The Burnt-Face People.’
John Henrik Clarke
They were upon their great theme: “When I get to be a man!” Being human, though boys, they considered their present estate too commonplace to be dwelt upon. So, when the old men gather, they say: “When I was a boy!” It really is the land of nowadays that we never discover.
Booth Tarkington
My mom and my dad taught me the greatest gifts we have are our family, our health and the right to clean water and good land.
Erin Brockovich
Within a few years a simple and inexpensive device, readily carried about, will enable one to receive on land or sea the principal news, to hear a speech, a lecture, a song or play of a musical instrument, conveyed from any other region of the globe.
Nikola Tesla
Men have dominated the field of landscape photography just as they have dominated the land itself. Thus shooting a virgin landscape has been man’s work – hunting, not gardening.
Lucy R. Lippard
Conquer land like Napoleon, military bomb fest
We want sanitary food, planetary conquest
U-God
Men will gamble and plot and fight and fall, all for the winning of a trophy. A woman’s heart, a piece of land, a kingdom, a lordship, a contract, a ship, an egg — it hardly matters the which or the what, as soon as it is seen to be desired by one, another will make a prize of it.
Jeanette Winterson
A regime which puts in a bunker the highest law in the land does not have the moral authority to say that nobody is above the law.
Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
Don’t wait to buy land, Buy land and wait. Find out where the people are going and buy the land before they get there.

Sylvester Stallone
This is not just a war over stolen land, why do you think little boys are throwing stones at tanks?
Lowkey
No office in the land is more important than that of being a citizen.
Felix Frankfurter
Like the Roman town grid, the New York plan was laid down on largely empty land, a city designed in advance of being inhabited; if the Romans consulted the heavens for guidance in this effort, the city fathers of New York consulted the banks.
Richard Sennett
Today’s fishing industry supplies land farms with fish as well. Over fifty percent of the fish caught is fed to livestock on factory farms and “regular” farms. It is an ingredient in the enriched “feed meal” fed to livestock.
Sharon Gannon
Do you think we care about the feelings of Native Americans when we celebrate Columbus Day? That’s the day that the white man discovered a land where Indians had been living for a few thousand years.

If you have to ask someone to change, to tell you they love you, to bring wine to dinner, to call you when they land, you can’t afford to be with them.
Sloane Crosley
Armel shrugged. “I suppose so, Brother, but why do creatures have to fight?” Demple picked Mudge up and placed him on his shoulder. “Because there’s always good and bad in the land, and goodbeasts have to protect their friends an’ families from evil ones who want nothing but to conquer an’ destroy.
Brian Jacques
Just because we have won victory, we must never relax our vigilance against the frenzied plots for revenge by the imperialists and their running dogs. Whoever relaxes vigilance will disarm himself politically and land himself in a passive position.

A. E. Housman
Aha! What villains are these, that trespass upon my private lands! Come to scorn at my fall, perchance? Draw, you knaves, you dogs!
J. K. Rowling
Envy is more irreconcilable than hate. It is the most corroding of all political vices and also a great power in our land. The friends of freedom are content to be envied, but envy not.
Hans F. Sennholz
Our law is a Jordanian law that we inherited, which applies to both the West Bank and Gaza, and sets the death penalty for those who sell land to Israelis.
Yasser Arafat
Hiking. I don’t like either the word or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains…the se mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not ‘hike’ through them.
John Muir
If every man would make his prime concern the comfort and well-being of his wife and every wife make her chief concern the comfort and well-being of her husband, we would have very little divorce in the land.

Tim O’Brien
My response was that more than half of Israelis are of Sephardic origin. Many of these Jews come from Arab lands and share the same physical skin color.
Natalie Portman
Men and women who live in America…have a responsibility greater than that yet borne by any other people. Theirs the duty, the obligation to preserve not only the Constitution of the land but the Christian principles from which sprang that immortal document.
David O. McKay
When you have seen the errors in which you live, you will understand the good that we have done you by coming to your land by order of his Majesty the King of Spain. Our Lord permitted that your pride should be brought low and that no Indian should be able to offend a Christian.
Jared Diamond
Christ is still in Christmas, and for one brief season the secular world broadcasts the message of Christ over every radio station and television channel in the land. Never does the church get as much free air time as during the Christmas season.
R. C. Sproul
I once knew a house rather like The Land of Smiles – an old house occupied by a varied collection of young people, mainly students. However none of these people were true models for the characters in the book, though their way of life may have been.
Margaret Mahy
My responsibility is to follow the Scriptures which call upon us to occupy the land until Jesus returns.
James G. Watt

Lyndon B. Johnson
Do you know we have more acreage of forest land in the United States today than we did at the time the Constitution was written?
Rush Limbaugh
She doesn’t know any better, what a girl like her needs is a man with both his legs on the land. A man who will hold her down so that she doesn’t fly away. She doesn’t know yet that someone like you looks better on the shelf than in your hand.
Maggie Stiefvater
The love of a man for his wife, his child, of the land where he lives and works, is for me the real meaning of mystical experience.
Edward Abbey

Wilford Brimley
Occasionally, in each age and in different lands, a Buddha is born, that is to say, an enlightened person…they re-codify the ways, the practices, they make changes that are just intelligent changes that adapt to a new century, a new culture.
Frederick Lenz
Conservation is not without its critics and opposition. There are a lot of special interests that don’t want to see land set aside.
Douglas Tompkins
The entire country may disagree with me, but I don’t understand the necessity for patriotism. Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country? I don’t see why people care about patriotism.
Natalie Maines

Jules Verne
I love the Constitution and government of this land, but I hate the damned rascals that administer the government.

Jane Kirkpatrick
Holland is a land of intense paradox. It is quite impossible, but it is there.
M. E. W. Sherwood
I absolutely adore cows. They’re the most fascinating, gentle and beautiful animals. Their eyes are so amazing. I have ten that live on the land around my house. I love to talk to them. There are few things better than falling asleep in a field and being woken up by an inquisitive cow.
Mary Quant
If they (the young pilots) are on land, they would be bombed down, and if they are in the air, they would be shot down. That’s sad…Too sad…To let the young men die beautifully, that’s what Tokko is. To give beautiful death, that’s called sympathy.
Takijiro Onishi
I can’t imagine being sixty years of age and playing music I wrote when I was in my twenties. I would rather sail the sea of consequence to new lands. Laps around the shallow end of the pool, not for me.
Henry Rollins
Atreyu comes from a land called Fantasia. It’s an imaginary land.
Noah Hathaway

Being about to land on the soil of North Carolina, the general commanding desires his soldiers to remember that they are here to support the Constitution and the laws, to put down rebellion, and to protect the persons and property of the loyal and peaceable citizens of the State.
Ambrose Burnside
If in a battle, I seize a bit of debatable land with a handful of soldiers, without having done anything to prevent an enemy bombardment of the position, would it ever occur to me to speak of a conquest of the terrain in question? Obviously not. Then why should I do so in chess?
Aron Nimzowitsch
Nowhere in the world can the Jew savor the taste of Homeland save in the Land of Israel.

I think that the only ultimate guide we have is our conscience, and if the law of the land goes against our conscience I think we should disobey the law.
Pierre Trudeau
Coming back to your native land after an absence of many years is a surprisingly unsettling business, a little like waking from a long coma. Time, you discover, has wrought changes that leave you feeling mildly foolish and out of touch.
Bill Bryson
A nation is not defined by its borders or the boundaries of its land mass Rather, a nation is defined by adverse people who have been unified by a cause and a value system and who are committed to a vision for the type of society they wish to live in and give to the future generations to come.
Tara Fela-Durotoye
America seemed a virgin land waiting for civilization. But Europe had made the wilderness it found; America was not a virgin, she was a widow.

A chorus of tough southern belles whispered, You need a loyal husband around here. Loyal to you, loyal to your family, loyal to your land. I added, Good in bed, smart, and romantic. Politically, socially, and religiously compatible. And he had to want children.
Deborah Smith
There is always a place I can take someone’s curiosity and land where they end up enlightened when we’re done. That’s my challenge as an educator. No one is dumb who is curious. The people who don’t ask questions remain clueless throughout their lives.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
The land promised to Abraham and his descendants is once again theirs. God always keeps His promises. Even in times of cataclysmic upheaval and change, God’s love and faithfulness are unchanging.
Lynn Austin
In the land of the lotus-eaters there is no action. Action arises only from need, from dissatisfaction. It is purposeful striving towards something. Its ultimate end is always to get rid of a condition which is conceived to be deficient-to fulfill a need, to achieve satisfaction, to increase happiness.
Ludwig von Mises
It is such a secret place, the land of tears.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
In many ways, the ability to read is the great divide that separates the very young from everyone else. Once we’ve joined the conspiracy of the literate, once we’ve crossed over to the land of the reading, everything changes.

Generations hence, parents will take their children to these woods to show them how the land must have looked to the first Pilgrims and pioneers. And as Americans wander through these forests, climb these mountains, they will sense the love and majesty of the Creator of all of that.
Ronald Reagan
India – a land where the last thing one needs to bother with is looking good. In India – at least in the circles I moved in – it’s natural to look beautiful by the smile in your heart and the way you move through the world.
Erin Lokitz
It is true that we aspire to our ancient land. But what we want in that ancient land is a new blossoming of the Jewish spirit.
Theodor Herzl
I’m absolutely strict about it. When I land, I put my watch right, and I don’t care what I feel like, I will go to bed at half past eleven. If that means going to bed early or late, that’s what I live by. As soon as you get there, live by that time.
David Attenborough
I showed my appreciation of my native land in the usual Irish way: by getting out of it as soon as I possibly could.

Daniel Wallace
The Houthi have local religious grievances, being Shiites in a majority Sunni land. But they are also agents of Shiite Iran, which arms, trains, and advises them. Their slogan – ‘God is great. Death to America. Death to Israel’ – could have been written in Persian.

Menander
much agricultural land which might be growing food is being used instead to ‘grow’ money (in the form of coffee, tea, etc.).
Frances Moore LappГ©
The future is a fog that is still hanging out over the sea, a boat that floats home or does not. The trade winds blow me, and I do not know where the land is; the waves fold over each other; they are in love with themselves; sleeping in their own skin; and I float over them and I do not know about tomorrow.
Anne Sexton
The bill then says if the Senate does not act, then H.R. 1 (the House-passed bill that cuts $61 billion) will be the law of the land. In addition to that, it says that if all else fails, and the Senate brings about a shutdown, then members should not get their pay.
Eric Cantor
We are Christians and Catholics not because we worship a key, but because we have passed a door; and felt the wind that is the trumpet of liberty blow over the land of the living.

The noblest contribution which any man can make for the benefit of posterity, is that of character. The richest bequest which any man can leave to the youth of his native land, is that of a shining, spotless example.
Robert Charles Winthrop
In the coming year, I believe we can make sure America lives up to its legacy as a land of opportunity if the President is willing to back up his rhetoric with substance.
Ron Kind
A life without stories would be no life at all. And stories bound us, did they not, one to another, the living to the dead, people to animals, people to the land?
Alexander McCall Smith
But it is obvious that our fathers, whose efforts have planted these great and prosperous cities along the once lonely trails of our own broad land, received all the fundamentals of civilization as a heritage from their European ancestors.
James Henry Breasted
From a distance the world looks blue and green,
and the snow-capped mountains white.
From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
and the eagle takes to flight.
From a distance, there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
It’s the voice of hope, it’s the voice of peace,
it’s the voice of every man

Millions and millions of people don’t pay an income tax, because they don’t earn enough to pay on one, but you pay a land tax whether it ever did or ever will earn you a penny. You should pay on things that you buy outside of bare necessities. I think this sales tax is the best tax we have had in years.
Will Rogers
We are all connected to the ocean. Without healthy oceans, no life, not even on land, can exist.
Jean-Michel Cousteau
Air superiority is a condition for all operations, at sea, in land, and in the air.
Arthur Tedder, 1st Baron Tedder
The Land of Israel needs a People and the People of Israel needs a Land.
Israel Zangwill
Jesus is nuts about kids. He doesn’t seem to think much of lawyers which really lands close to home, but He’s nuts about kids and loves justice.
Bob Goff
You just can’t win. Men have very recent land mines in their heads. Women have recorded conversations and photographs in their heads from 15 years ago.
Denis Leary
Black people have always been America’s wilderness in search of a promised land.
Cornel West
I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with Blood.
John Mason Brown
I wonder what it felt to move to a country where you didn’t grow up. I had thought about that often since my sister got married. Do you become a character in a story native to that land, or do you, somewhere in your heart, want to return to your homeland.
Banana Yoshimoto
As for me, I am tormented with an everlasting itch for things remote. I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.
Herman Melville
It has been proved that the land can exist without the country – and be better for it; it has not been proved … that the country can exist without the land.
Alice Walker
Everyone who’s born has come from the sea. Your mother’s womb is just a sea in small. And birds come of seas on eggs. Horses lie in the sea before they’re born. The placenta is the sea. Your blood is the sea continued in your veins. We are the ocean — walking on the land.
Timothy Findley
The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as their equal right to breathe the air it is a right proclaimed by the fact of their existence. For we cannot suppose that some men have a right to be in this world, and others no right.
Henry George
Every flyer who ventures across oceans to distant lands is a potential explorer; in his or her breast burns the same fire that urged adventurers of old to set forth in their sailing-ships for foreign lands.
Jean Batten
I did I Love My Wife on Broadway in 1978, and then went into television land. Now things are starting to come together in the way I thought they might when I was a kid.
Tom Wopat
Don’t wait to buy land, buy land and wait.
Will Rogers
No public man can be just a little crooked. There is no such thing as a no-man’s land between honesty and dishonesty.
Herbert Hoover
Among these treasures of our land is water-fast becoming our most valuable, most prized, most critical resource. A blessing where properly used-but it can bring devastation and ruin when left uncontrolled.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Alone because love was one of those feelings that you could never have control of. And she needed to be in control. She had loved before, had been loved, had tasted what it was to dream, and had felt what it was to dance on air. She had also learned what it was to cruelly land back on the earth with a thud.
Cecelia Ahern
Some applauding Steve Harvey for the instructions he gave, others simply horrified by the instructions that one feels necessary to give in this the freest land in all the earth, in 2016, the United States of America.
Chris Hayes
On the same line of reasoning, if Australians were to be Australians, or rather if Australians were as separate from any other nation as Australia from any other land, there would be no jealousy between them on England’s account.
Henry Lawson
There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.
Linda Hogan
More needs to be done to take the fight to the enemy and secure our borders against the terrorist threat. We need more protection on land, sea and air.
Nick Lampson
If I had known, do you think I should have let her get away with this mad plan? That I should have let her rob me of my child? No, I should have taken you myself and hidden with you in some far-off land and never seen her again rather than agree to such an unnatural scheme
Mary Hoffman
Waves, once they land on the beach, are not reversible.
Grace Paley
We feel the value is in the land, not the improvements.
Mike Simpson
The uniqueness of the United States in human history is the United States is the first global power in human history which emerged far away from Africa or Asia, which is the main land of human history.
Ahmet Davutoglu
When you hear the word ‘cancer,’ it’s as if someone took the game of Life and tossed it in the air. All the pieces go flying. The pieces land on a new board. Everything has shifted. You don’t know where to start.
Regina Brett
We say this is a land of immigrants, and we forget that this was a land that belonged to people. And those of us who are new immigrants and those of us who come from generations of immigrants have to realize we are not that much different from one another.
Ilhan Omar
Let the Black man go – stop lying to us that you love us. And if you really love us, let us go and give us some of this territory that we can call our own; and give us the billions of dollars that we can get started with land and with tractors and the things that will make us an independent nation.
Louis Farrakhan
How happy is the sailor’s life, from coast to coast to roam; in every port he finds a wife, in every land a home.
Isaac Bickerstaffe
With Epcot Center, the Disney corporation has accomplished something I didn’t think possible in today’s world. They have created a land of make-believe that’s worse than regular life.
P. J. O’Rourke
It is better to underpromise and overdeliver than vice versa. For this one need not break the law of the land.
N. R. Narayana Murthy
Church bells beyond the stars heard, the soul’s blood, The land of spices; something understood.
George Herbert
The larger question for the Northwest, where the cities are barely a hundred years old but contain three-fourths of the population, is whether the wild land can provide work for those who need it as their source of income without being ruined for those who need it as their source of sanity.
Timothy Egan
The United States Congress, acting with large bipartisan majorities, at the urging of the President, enacted as the law of the land that all children are to be above average.
Charles A. Murray
There is, of course, a legitimate argument for some limitation upon immigration. We no longer need settlers for virgin lands, and our economy is expanding more slowly than in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
John F. Kennedy
You, too, will be driven away from your native land and ancient domains as leaves are driven before the wintry storms. Sleep not longer, O Choctaws and Chickasaws, in false security and delusive hopes. Our broad domains are fast escaping from our grasp.
Tecumseh
In Southern California along the coast, if the only thing you can do with the land is agriculture, it would be substantially less (in value) than property that has almost any other allowable use.
Bill Vaughan
To subdivide this land into two unstable, insecure nations, to try to defend what is indefensible, is to invite disaster. Carving Judea and Samaria out of Israel means carving up Israel.
Benjamin Netanyahu
California is a tragic country – like Palestine, like every Promised Land.
Christopher Isherwood
Fear holds dominion over mortality
Only because, seeing in land and sky
So much the cause whereof no wise they know,
Men think Divinities are working there.
Lucretius
It is often the failure who is the pioneer in new lands, new undertakings, and new forms of expression.
Eric Hoffer
The nearer I approach death the more I feel like one who is in sight of land at last and is about to anchor in one’s home port after a long voyage.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
I jumped off a platform, was supposed to land on a roof and slide down it, but I cleared the roof and landed on my ankle – snapped that to one side.
Richard Madden
I have a dream:
One day we will get to the promised land.
Then the president will be me,
The government will be Shabaam, Mos and Kweli…that’s it!
All wackness is now banned.
Pharoahe Monch
Jesus has redeemed not only our souls, but our bodies. When the Lord shall deliver His captive people out of the land of the enemy He will not leave a bone of one of them in the adversary’s power. The dominion of death shall be utterly broken.
Charles Spurgeon
Democracy is always the work of kings. Ashes, which in themselves are sterile, fertilize the land they are cast upon.
Walter Savage Landor
Be not dismayed; in the future lies the Promised Land.
Helen Keller
Times change but principles don’t.
Times change but lands do not.
Times change but our culture and
our language remain the same.
And that’s what you have to keep intact.
It’s not what you wear – it’s what’s in your heart.
Oren Lyons
Spring sprang suddenly onto the land.
Jean Giono
What do you plan to do in the land of the sleepers? You have been floating in a sea of solitude, and the sea has borne you up. At long last, are you ready for dry land? Are you ready to drag yourself ashore?
Friedrich Nietzsche
Forests are the lungs of our land.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
With a nearly desperate sense of isolation and a growing suspicion that I lived in an alien land, I took to the road in search of places where change did not mean ruin and where time and men and deeds connected.
William Least Heat-Moon
A large portion of the Earth’s land area is taken up by old varsity jackets.
Demetri Martin
We’re hoping to succeed; we’re okay with failure. We just don’t want to land in between.
David Chang
But if I hadn’t shoved you off the boat back there,you’d be lost at sea now,wouldn’t you? We’d all be lost! So thanks to me you’re all standing on land.” (Pirates, its a good thing they’re idiots)
Dave Barry
Some land surveyors delve into land development advocacy, working with local government on behalf of clients in order to facilitate progress on a project. Others stick to strictly surveying. The approach depends on the individual firm and the needs of the local area.
Mark Mason
The pornography of violence of course far exceeds, in volume and general acceptance, sexual pornography, in this Puritan land of ours.
Ursula K. Le Guin
High in the North in a land called Svithjod there is a mountain. It is a hundred miles long and a hundred miles high and once every thousand years a little bird comes to this mountain to sharpen its beak. When the mountain has thus been worn away a single day of eternity will have passed
Hendrik Willem van Loon
We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children
Chief Seattle
There are many ways of seeing the world. You can hang upside down from a meteor, volunteer to be the fourth stage of a three-stage rocket, or simply get in a balloon and keep going. But if it’s sheer, unadulterated discomfort you’re looking for, just stay on land.
Michael Palin
The most difficult task for anyone wandering through a foreign land with the hope of gaining some insight into it is the profound need to come to terms with the lives and thoughts of strangers.
Simon Winchester
The whole notion of land property rights in the Arab world is different from that in Europe.
William Odom
We trace the hand of the Almighty in framing the constitution of our land, and believe that the Lord raised up men purposely for the accomplishment of this object, raised them up and inspired them to frame the Constitution of the United States
Lorenzo Snow
All I had to do was go out and perform. One of the hardest things was doing those back flips, where you had to jump up and land on the top rope. It’s precision movement.
Owen Hart
The great battleground for the defense and expansion of freedom today is the whole southern half of the globe… the lands of the rising peoples. Their revolution is the greatest in human history. They seek an end to injustice, tyranny and exploitation. More than an end, they seek a beginning.
John F. Kennedy
In that year [1865] John Muir offered to buy from his brother … a sanctuary for the wildflowers that had gladdened his youth. His brother declined to part with the land, but he could not suppress the idea: 1865 still stands in Wisconsin history as the birth-year of mercy for things natural, wild, and free.
Aldo Leopold
But search the land of living men, Where wilt thou find their like again?
Walter Scott
Nothing can prevent the united consumer from working for themselves with the aid of mutual credit, from building factories, workshops, houses for themselves, from acquiring land; nothing — if only they have a will and begin.
Gustav Landauer
Without the shepherd’s dog, the whole of the open mountainous land in Scotland would not be worth a sixpence.
James Hogg
Me, I walk along and feel quietly defensive, a recluse in the Land of We. That’s quite the loaded word, ‘we.
Caroline Knapp
Canada is a broad land – broad in mind, broad in spirit, and broad in physical expanse.
Harry S. Truman
When I was doing just the underwater, I don’t think people could relate to it at first. Then I added the land, which was a painting called, Two Worlds. For some reason that particular painting gave people something to hold onto.
Robert Lyn Nelson
Tell me, Do you feel the way I feel? ‘Cause nothing else is real In the La La Land machine
Demi Lovato
Our Soviet society is socialist because private ownership of factories, plants, land, banks and means of transportation has been abolished in our country, and replaced by public ownership.
Joseph Stalin
Land is an emotional subject with a farmer in India because it is his only means of income.
Kushal Pal Singh
America has been the New World in all tongues, to all peoples, not because this continent was a new-found land, but because all those who came here believed they could create upon this continent a new life — a life that should be new in freedom.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The soil is the great connector of our lives, the source and destination of all.
Wendell Berry
The law regards man as man, and takes no account of his surroundings or of his color when his civil rights as guaranteed by the supreme law of the land are involved.
John Marshall Harlan
The rich think this land is theirs though they have never earned the right to call it theirs.
Maaza Mengiste
From several of the Indian tribes inhabiting the country bordering on Lake Erie purchases have been made of lands on conditions very favorable to the United States, and, as it is presumed, not less so to the tribes themselves.
James Monroe
To people who think of themselves as God’s houseguests, American enterprise must seem arrogant beyond belief. Or stupid. A nation of amnesiacs, proceeding as if there were no other day but today. Assuming the land could also forget what had been done to it.
Barbara Kingsolver
Writing is a cop-out. An excuse to live perpetually in fantasy land, where you can create, direct and watch the products of your own head. Very selfish.
Monica Dickens
Nature, like a loving mother, is ever trying to keep land and sea, mountain and valley, each in its place, to hush the angry winds and waves, balance the extremes of heat and cold, of rain and drought, that peace, harmony and beauty may reign supreme.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
In the alluvial sweep of the land, I thought I could see the past and the present and the future all at once, as though time were not sequential in nature but took place without a beginning or an end, like a flash of green light rippling outward from the center of creation, not unlike a dream inside the mind of God.
James Lee Burke
I think it’s very sad, when Barack Obama lands in Saudi Arabia, and he lands in Cuba, and there aren’t high officials to even greet him.
Donald Trump
To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.
Theodore Roosevelt
I renew my call for the occupier (the United States) to leave our land. The departure of the occupier will mean stability for Iraq, victory for Islam and peace and defeat for terrorism and infidels.
Muqtada al Sadr
Village cricket spread fast through the land.
G. M. Trevelyan
Smell brings to mind… a family dinner of pot roast and sweet potatoes during a myrtle-mad August in a Midwestern town. Smells detonate softly in our memory like poignant land mines hidden under the weedy mass of years.
Diane Ackerman
The soil of their native land is dear to all the hearts of mankind.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Show me the manner in which a nation or a community cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender sympathies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high ideals.
William E. Gladstone
Death is not a journey into an unknown land; it is a voyage home. We are going, not to a strange country, but to our fathers house.
John Ruskin
What the Muslim Brotherhood said in the explanatory memorandum that was discovered during the Holy Land Foundation Trial was that, “they will take advantage of our PC attitude to get us”.
Benjamin Carson
And when wind and winter harden All the loveless land, It will whisper of the garden, You will understand.
Oscar Wilde
I feel the other element of a western is the land, which is very important in this movie. I mean the land is another character in the piece, actually
Tom Selleck
For me, it always comes back to the land, respecting the land, the wildlife, the plants, the rivers, mountains, and deserts, the absolute essential bedrock of our lives. This is the source of where my power lies, the source of where all our power lies.
Terry Tempest Williams
The sea heaves up, hangs loaded o’er the land, Breaks there, and buries its tumultuous strength.
Robert Browning
Above all, India is the land of religion.
Swami Vivekananda
No matter in what land we may dwell the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ makes us brothers and sisters, interested in each other, eager to understand and know each other.
Heber J. Grant
I just lead my life as naturally, as normally as I possibly can. But I can’t help it if controversy is hounding me day in and day out. I’m quite amazed sometimes by the way they go about it. I grow a beard and it lands up in the editorial in The Times of India.
Amitabh Bachchan
Remember me when I am gone away, gone far away into the silent land.
Christina Rossetti
Youth, with swift feet, walks onward in the way; the land of joy lies all before his eyes.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
I can promise you none of these things. No sphere of usefulness; you are not needed there at all. No scope of your talents; only forgiveness for having perverted them. No atmosphere of inquiry, for I will bring you to the land not of questions but of answers, and you shall see the face of God. (pg 40)
C. S. Lewis
The first condition a community should set, if it aspires to be a nation, is to own the land whereon it lives, and supply its own needs.
Max Nordau
Folk who don’t know why America is the Land of Promise should be here during an election campaign.
Milton Berle
In the true sense one’s native land, with its background of tradition, early impressions, reminiscences and other things dear to one, is not enough to make sensitive human beings feel at home.
Emma Goldman
I have spent some months in England, have seen an awful lot and learned little. England is not a land of science, there is only a widely practised dilettantism, the chemists are ashamed to call themselves chemists because the pharmacists, who are despised, have assumed this name.
Justus von Liebig
We pray for the many brothers and sisters who seek refuge far from their native lands, who seek a home where they can live without fear: that they might always be respected in their dignity.
Pope Francis
There is only laughing across the land as the car moves you along, on your way someplace with love in the car.
Daniel Handler
The outstanding scientific discovery of the twentieth century is not television, or radio, but rather the complexity of the land organism.
Aldo Leopold
Nationalism is a type of insanity in which the boundaries of a land replace God.
Billy Collins
Never in history has the navy landed an army at the planned time and place. But if you land us anywhere within 50 miles of Fedela and within 1 week of D-Day. I’ll go ahead and win.
George S. Patton
How heartening it is to know that Ken Loach is still out there making committed, polemical cinema, so long as you don’t have to watch it. Never go near a Ken Loach film unless you’re trying to sleep with a socialist. If you are, however, Land And Freedom should do the trick.
David Bennun
There is no jewel in the world comparable to learning; no learning so excellent both for Prince and subject, as knowledge of laws; and no knowledge of any laws so necessary for all estates and for all causes, concerning goods, lands or life, as the common laws of England.
Edward Coke
Knaves starve not in the land of fools.
Charles Churchill
Rivers are the arteries that carry the trash from land to sea.
Boyan Slat
Be careful what rubbish you toss in the tide. On outgoing billows it drifts from your sight, But back on the incoming waves it may ride And land at your threshold again before night. Be careful what rubbish you toss in the tide.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
If I knew that it was possible to save all the children of Germany by transporting them to England, and only half by transferring them to the Land of Israel, I would choose the latter, for before us lies not only the numbers of these children but the historical reckoning of the people of Israel.
David Ben-Gurion
Nigerians are everywhere. There’s an old joke, particularly about the Ibos, that when you finally land on Mars, you’re going to find a Nigerian there who has a shop that is selling Coca-Cola–who took a speculative trip 20 years ago and has been waiting for everyone else to arrive.
Chris Abani
Now, America is a land of second chances, and I gather you have room for the estimated 6 million of us who know we got it wrong in 2008 and who want to fix it.
Artur Davis
What greater grief than the loss of one’s native land.
Euripides
Life in the oceans must be sheer hell. A vast, merciless hell of permanent and immediate danger. So much of a hell that during evolution some species—including man—crawled, fled onto some small continents of solid land, where the Lessons of Darkness continue.
Werner Herzog
In your eyes of mourning the land of dreams begins.
Pablo Neruda
Hobbits are a lot like Scots. It’s all about nature and enjoying their land, which is a very Scottish thing.
Billy Boyd
There was a land of Cavaliers and Cotton Fields called the Old South. Here in this pretty world, Gallantry took its last bow. Here was the last ever to be seen of Knights and their Ladies Fair, of Master and of Slave. Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered, a Civilization gone with the wind.
Ben Hecht
Lord, there’s danger in this land, you get witch hunts and wars when church and state hold hands.
Joni Mitchell
Music has always been a location for me to run to, whether it’s through someone else’s song or my own. I can observe my own planet from this foreign land and things make sense within the telescopic lens of song.
Jon Foreman
Poetry is the journal of the sea animal living on land, wanting to fly in the air. Poetry is a search for syllables to shoot at the barriers of the unknown and the unknowable. Poetry is a phantom script telling how rainbows are made and why they go away.
Carl Sandburg
Today the children of our public schools are taught more of the history, heroes, legends, and sagas of the old world than of the land of their birth, while they are furnished with little material on the people and institutions that are truly American.
Luther Standing Bear
The white man has got the gold out of the land which belonged to the red man.
Red Cloud
Viewed from a certain distance and under good light, even an ugly city can look like the promised land.
Leon Krier
We’ve gone from the image of India as land of fakirs lying on beds of nails, and snake charmers with the Indian rope trick, to the image of India as a land of mathematical geniuses, computer wizards, software gurus.
Shashi Tharoor
In fact, because of this deep desire for peace, the ruling class leaders of this land, from 1945 on, stepped up the hysteria and propaganda to drive into American minds the false notion that danger threatened them from the East.
Paul Robeson
America is terrified of the passage of time. Prozac Nation. Land of Face Lifts.
Dirk Benedict
We do not go to mission lands to ‘bring Jesus Christ’ as much as to uncover him where he already is.
Catherine Doherty
He has always provided me a safe place to land and a hard place from which to launch.
Chelsea Clinton
The ultimate 20-year plan is to be living in the Caribbean, writing, living off the land, eating from the ocean and probably smoking herb.
Ryan Phillippe
Your mysterious mountains I wish to see closer. May I land my kinky machine?
Jimi Hendrix
Shoot for the stars, so if you fall you land on a cloud.
Kanye West
The wind? I am the wind. The sea and the moon? I am the sea and the moon. Tears, pain, love, bird-flights? I am all of them. I dance what I am. Sin, prayer, flight, the light that never was on land or sea? I dance what I am.
Isadora Duncan
So much of life is what you roll and where you land.
Mark Hamill
America has begun a spiritual reawakening. Faith and hope are being restored. Americans are turning back to God. Church attendance is up. Audiences for religious books and broadcasts are growing. And I do believe that he has begun to heal our blessed land.
Ronald Reagan
America is a land of healthy appetites. It is not in the American character to live in order to eat. Rather, the reverse is true. Many try, but just as Americans don’t make good gigolos, nether do they make good gourmets.
Ludwig Bemelmans
I’ve never seen the point of the sea, except where it meets the land. The shore has a point. The sea has none.
Alan Bennett
