George Packer
The voice of God does not pander, offers no five-year plan, no long-term

Robert Hass
Many churches of all persuasions are hiring research agencies to poll neighborhoods, asking what kind of church they prefer.

C. J. Mahaney
Oh gosh, well, you know, growing up in the ’70s being a young boy there, you know, there were still exploitation movies, where, you know, were, you know, still opened up every week and, you know, played – sometimes they would play it at the local, you know, mall theater.

The thing is, that great actors are everywhere. They’re everywhere. They’re doing good parts on television. They’re doing television commercials. They’re doing local theater. There are so few opportunities.

I get recognized somewhere in between like local meteorologist and national meteorologist.

TV can reach broad audiences, mass audiences, niche audiences; it can be local, regional, national; it can be spots, sponsorship, interactive. It can be anything you want it to be. I tend to think of TV as the Swiss Army knife of media, it’s got something for everybody.
Nick Manning
Well it’s hotter ‘n blazes and all the long faces / there’ll be no oasis for a dry local grazier
Tom Waits

Robert Greenwald
One of my beliefs is that there are certain institutions within a community which stand for the spirit and heart of that community, there’s the church, the local football team, the local pub and the theatre.

Marla Maples
Government is taking 40 percent of the GDP. And that’s at the state, local and federal level. President Obama has taken government spending at the federal level from 20 percent to 25 percent. Look, at some point, you cease being a free economy, and you become a government economy. And we’ve got to stop that.
Mitt Romney
Anything you’re interested in the world whether it be Charlie rose or JetBlue or a public figure or your local coffee shop, they’re on Twitter and broadcasting what is interesting to them.

Ann Coulter
Whether I’m feeding the homeless, stopping by a high school to chat with teens, visiting a prison or local jail, I think that the greatest service you can give is yourself. To be able to help someone who is not in a position to help themselves or possibly ever repay you.
Raheem Devaughn
When I was young and we got caught pinching apples, we got a smack from the local policeman. Today if that happened he would be sued. There is a tendency to punish the victim, not the criminal. If someone broke into my house or my mum’s house, I worry that the burglar has more rights than me.
Simon Cowell
Without local guides, your enemy employs the land as a weapon against you.
Sun Tzu
Offensive realism predicts that the United States will send its army across the Atlantic when there is a potential hegemon in Europe that the local great powers cannot contain by themselves.
John Mearsheimer

Jason Mraz
Most of the damage suffered by the ocean up until now has been caused by local insults – overfishing, pollution, and destruction of habitats. If we tackle these problems now, we buy ourselves time to work on climate change.
Nancy Knowlton
When you’re serving at the local level, you have to build strong personal relationships to get things done.

Emory Douglas
Local politics matters a lot.
Van Jones
A president of the United States, again, has to bring people together, have a position. We need to be able to penetrate these people when they are involved in these plots and these plans. And we have to give the local authorities the ability to penetrate to disrupt. That’s what we need to do.
John Kasich
Serving the emerging whole means paying attention to what’s right here within my awareness, what’s completely local, and surrendering to what’s being asked of me now.

Herbert Croly
In this most powerful nation in the world, lack of access to health care should not force local and state governments, companies and workers into bankruptcy, while causing unnecessary illness and hospitalization.
John Conyers

Dick Wolf
Beauty is no local deity, like the Greek and Roman gods, but omnipresent.
C. A. Bartol
Well, there are certain pockets of improvement. The one that I think is most important is that state and local law enforcement levels have started to do a lot more educative efforts within their organizations to understand the kind of threat we’re facing. They’ve given up on the federal level.
Michael Scheuer
Something’s happened in our society which I don’t think is beneficial, and that’s that you see the public being fed box-office news. Newscasts now, every local station – I’ve been traveling around the country a lot, and you see the local news, and they give box-office reports.
Bryan Cranston
It is not easy to get rich in Las Vegas, at Churchill Downs, or at the local Merrill Lynch office.
Paul Samuelson
I’m as religious as the next man – which is to say I’ll keep in with the local parson for form’s sake and read the lessons on feast-days because my tenants expect it, but I’ve never been fool enough to confuse religion with belief in God. That’s where so many clergymen… go wrong
George MacDonald Fraser
Religion has the same relation to man’s heavenly condition that mathematics has to his earthly one: both the one and the other are merely the rules of the game. Belief in God and belief in numbers: local truth and truth of location.
Vladimir Nabokov
This is not the first time that Mexican authorities have handed over an Arab from a country with known Al Qaeda connections to a local sheriff across the border. FBI picks them up and disappears
John Culberson
There are now 17,000 local American police forces that are armed with rocket launchers, bazookas, heavy machine guns, all kinds of chemical sprays, in fact some of them have tanks. You now have local police departments that are equipped beyond the standard of American heavy infantry.
Paul Craig Roberts
Since most of the transmission is sexual transmission, you have a regional or local response to the virus.
Luc Montagnier

Kathleen Merrigan
Everyone should get more involved in exercising, not just for the health benefits, but for the social side too. There are so many different aspects in your life where sport can help. Even if you only go to a class at a local pool, you’ll feel the benefits.
Jazmin Carlin
The ultimate end is a nation that lies under the concept of the Declaration of Indepen dence. The Declaration of Independence is such an extraordinary statement – it was designed by people skeptical of government, local or national, but in particular national.
Malcolm Wallop
What we need is not more Federal government, but better local government.
Calvin Coolidge
Small scale is critical to local life, to the ability of local people to control what happens where they live.
Paul Weyrich
That’s the case with these exponential technologies; our brains, they struggle with it. We live in a world that is global and exponential, and our brains evolved in a world that was linear and local.
Jason Silva
I get a chance to see new bands and new music. I’ve seen a lot of amazing local bands, bands that I think ‘have what it takes’, that they could become the next big thing. More often than not it doesn’t happen.
Matt Snell
The Red Sox are a curious thing because so much here is media driven. You can’t go fire half your scouts here because they are all friends with the local reporters. Your life is going to hell in the papers.
Michael Lewis
I don’t know if I would refer to myself as a local celebrity.
Joshua Greenberg
People should go to their local grocery store or farmers’ market and buy ugly, misshapen foods, then cook with them and document their dishes. And share not only the funny-looking foods, but the fantastic results.
Dana Cowin
Trenchmouth, really great band. Here’s a photo of them in 1979 playing the Valley Green projects. It was an incredible, unusual experience. We ran a cord through the window and plugged the PA and amps into that and played right in the courtyard. It was an incredible experience. It was just local kids.
Ian MacKaye
If you’re living in the community and you own your local businesses and you’re engaged in the local economy you should have a definite interest in the strength and health of your community, the caring relationships that bind people together.
David Korten
Sometimes my boyfriend would write the lyrics and I would write the melody, and other times I would start from scratch. Or sometimes I would take a local poem and put that to music…I always sang standards because the songs I wrote for myself weren’t as easy to sing.
Carly Simon
Water is our most precious and interconnected natural resource. It sustains all ecosystems, communities, and economies from local watersheds to the seas. It’s vital to sustaining our health, safety, and the environments in which we live and work. Simply put, water is life.
Alexandra Cousteau
I guess the closest I came was doing chores around the house to earn pocket money. My brother and I would have to do the washing up, cleaning around the house, walking my grandparents’ dog, lots of things. We didn’t get a huge amount but it was always enough to be able to walk down to the local shops and get some sweets.
Andy Murray
Someone unfamiliar with the mountains and forests cannot advance [the team]. One who does not employ local guides cannot gain the advantage.
Sun Tzu
The mainline media attacks all conservatives, especially Christians, and distorts their policies and beliefs so that the local population is afraid to vote for them.
Tim LaHaye
I have always been an obsessive reader – I remember going back and forth to the local library with stacks of books taller than I was.
Lisa Kleypas

Dennis Miller
The increasing importance of Sydney must in some measure be attributed to the flourishing condition of the colony itself, to the industry of its farmers, to the successful enterprise of its merchants, and to particular local causes.
Charles Sturt
It is unfortunate that so much of the history of Africa has been written by conquerors, foreigners, missionaries and adventurers. The Egyptians left the best record of their history written by local writers.
John Henrik Clarke
Like the effects of industrial pollution and the new system of global financial markets, the AIDS crisis is evidence of a world in which nothing important is regional, local, limited; in which everything that can circulate does, and every problem is, or is destined to become, worldwide.
Susan Sontag
Every local church has a leader but it seems so few local churches are being led.
Andy Stanley
I came to all the realizations about sustainability and biodiversity because I fell in love with the way food tastes. And because I was looking for that taste I feel at the doorsteps of the organic, local, sustainable farmers, dairy people and fisherman.
Alice Waters
If a hurricane strikes, we can blame the president for not being there; we can blame Congress and FEMA; we can blame the state governments; but in the end, it’s the mayors and the local city governments that have to be prepared for emergencies and be prepared to act.
Michael Bloomberg
In 2003, I introduced and passed The Tornado Shelters Act, which allows local governments to use Community Development Block Grant funds to construct storm shelters in manufactured housing communities.
Spencer Bachus
I took up a sort of a hobby of just hanging around the local library. I’d pick out an author and I would read all their books.

Edgar Wright
During the election in 1989, there was the first Soviet election with alternative candidates to local government. I myself arranged special training for them.
Anatoly Chubais
Complementary currencies work in addition to existing money, rather than replacing existing, official money. There are whole different families of complementary currencies. One of them is local currencies. One is regional currencies. Another is functional currencies. Another is social-purpose currencies.
Bernard Lietaer
I was a tomboy running around in the garden. I used to play on a local cricket team. I grew up with all boy cousins, for the most part, and my brother.
Felicity Jones
I have an optimism about what people are willing to do. The greatest force in the world today, believe it or not, are these countless groups of people in every country almost… that are doing things to protect their local environment and to try and protect the earth.
Peter Cundall
Nationalism has two fatal charms for its devotees: It presupposes local self-sufficiency, which is a pleasant and desirable condition, and it suggests, very subtly, a certain personal superiority by reason of one’s belonging to a place which is definable and familiar, as against a place that is strange, remote.
E. B. White
If an organ is somehow severed from its body, it will shrivel and die. It cannot exist on its own, and neither can you. Disconnected and cut off from the lifeblood of a local body, your spiritual life will wither and eventually cease to exist.
Rick Warren
If I must be ruled by larcenous bullies, I much prefer that they be located far away. Local bullies know far more about me and my doings than faraway bullies sitting in offices in Washington, and can oppress me far more effectively.
Henry Spencer
Each year, millions of animals are euthanized at local shelters because of overpopulation. Almost half of the animals brought into these shelters are euthanized because suitable homes can’t be found for them. Animal rescue, a cause close to my heart, can lead to the safety of millions of these lost souls.
Jud Tylor
For my constituents, owning a home is the culmination of many years of hard work and the realization of the American Dream. At no time should a local entity take those years of hard work solely to increase their tax revenue.
Solomon Ortiz
Obama wants to take the individual small business tax to 44 percent, and the corporate rate – he says – down to 28 percent or whatever. But that really damages the small businesses. And it doesn’t make us competitive. You got to take them both down to 20, because state and local corporate taxes are 5 percent.
Grover Norquist
As a kid I would get my parents to drop me off at my local library on their way to work during the summer holidays and I would walk home at night. For several years I read the children’s library until I finished the children’s library. Then I moved into the adult library and slowly worked my way through them.
Neil Gaiman
When justices seize authority from the other branches of the federal government, as well as state and local governments, under the rubric of judicial review, that’s tyranny.
Mark Levin
What you do once you’re beyond the confines of your local lift service can be as limitless as the mountains themselves.
Craig Kelly
I think the world on the other side of fossil fuel is more local – the logic of sun and wind is diffuse and spread out, not concentrated like the logic of coal and oil.
Bill McKibben
Vegetable box schemes, local greengrocers, farmers’ markets and organic stores are a great place to source package-free foods.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
I’m certainly very conservative when it comes to education. We’re getting rid of Common Core. We’re going to have education at a local level.
Donald Trump
Not a few organizations exist in our country which function poorly. Sometimes it happens that this or that local government or organ have to satisfy one or another of the many-sided and ever increasing demands of the working population of town and countryside.
Joseph Stalin
The government bugged the men’s room in the local disco lounge.
Don Henley
I would have been about seven years old when the formative years of my competitive football education began. I was playing in the local leagues around Manchester, playing against lads from tough areas who had been taught they had to fight for everything.
Gary Neville
I never wanted to be known as a local rapper. Not downing anybody, but you know Gucci, that’s cool to me, but I want to be massive. I want to be Kanye. I want to be Eminem.
Cyhi the Prynce
On a transparency front, I would say that I certainly dream of a world in which our local, state, and national and international governments and other organizations have a 21st century, digital-era transparency built into them by default.
Chelsea Manning
If we can produce more ethanol and bio-diesel to help fuel our vehicles, we will create jobs, boost local economies and produce cleaner burning fuels. This will keep dollars here at home where they can have a positive impact on our economy.
Rick Renzi
All empires have depended on local legitimacy and local collaboration; they are not based primarily on coercion. An imperial rule that relies wholly on coercion can’t endure. It’s too expensive.
Niall Ferguson
If a politician is running in your local community who’s pro-choice, who’s feminist in their thinking, get behind them. Send them some money! If you have no money but have time, lick stamps!
Ani DiFranco
Foreign investors will not come and do things without any returns for themselves. And we don’t expect them to come work for us free. But the local population should benefit rightfully. The locals should benefit just a little more than the companies.
Aung San Suu Kyi
I’d breed a little liberal army in the wood, just like these redneck lunatics I see at the local bar with their tribe of mutant inbred piglets.
Lou Reed
Draconian limits on economic growth and on the use of the automobile should not be necessary in order to give Americans clean air at levels they are willing to pay for, but it will require significant Federal, State, and local leadership and innovative approaches from government and industry.
George H. W. Bush
We in Government have begun to recognize the critical work which must be done at all levels-local, State and Federal-in ending the pollution of our waters.
Robert Kennedy
Praying for revival equates to blaming God for the condition of your local church.
Andy Stanley
There are many Sheriff Arpaios. People who have taken to local city, county, and state governments across the county the idea that immigrants are the problem. That immigrants are to blame.
Zack de la Rocha
The vicious cycle that is bringing down European states is not going to hit us [the USA], at least not for a while, at the level of the federal government. The same cannot be said of state and local governments.
Michael Lewis
I really think more fledgling novelists – and many current and even established novelists – should get out into the real world and cover local politics, sports, culture, and crime and write it up on deadline.
C. J. Box
More and more the writer is aware of an international community of readers for whom dense language use and frequent local references are a hindrance. This seems obvious. I don’t decry it or criticize it – it’s just a fact.
Tim Parks
When I was younger, I was one of the few girls in the neighborhood who could break dance. That’s kind of my local, ghetto-celebrity claim to fame.
Joy Bryant
There are a handful of barbecue seafood shacks on the beach at Hat Nai Yang, which is a fabulous place to have dinner. It’s very much run for locals and they serve the catch of the day, which might be lobster, white snapper or squid. It’s ridiculously reasonable, too.
Tony Parsons
Biological diversity is the key to the maintenance of the world as we know it… Eliminate one species, and another increases to take its place. Eliminate a great many species, and the local ecosystem starts to decay.
E. O. Wilson
When I was ten, I saw ‘Grease’ on stage and thought: ‘I want to be part of that; it looks like so much fun.’ My mum enrolled me in a local theatre group, and it all went from there.
Michelle Ryan
The last jobs I had were fixing cars and covering football games for a local access tv station. As in driving the mobile van to the field, setting up 3 cameras, teaching depressed grownups and interns how to use them and directing the game from the van and then wanting to kill myself.
Louis C. K.
State and local government, with financial support from the federal government, should offer a program to educate and train foster children for employment and provide them with financial assistance, as needed, until they reach age 21.
Charles Bass
I believe that a newspaper is a great civic asset and that ownership is best in the hands of foundations or wealthy families that want to own it for reasons other than maximizing profits. I also believe newspapers should remain in local hands.
Eli Broad
I suspect people are going to vote for Max Burns because they know him as local boy who’s got – share their values.
George W. Bush
Human rights transcend local or ethnocentric values, conferring equal dignity and value on all humanity regardless of sex, ethnicity, sexual preference, or religion. It is in the West that human rights are most respected.
Ibn Warraq
I don’t think my book is any more shocking than if I went out right now and brought back your local newspaper and found a story that happened around here yesterday or the day before that’s just as shocking as anything in my book.
Donald Ray Pollock
I don’t have any writing routine. Sometimes I go to my local coffee shop and I write there for some hours. Apart from that, I am traveling most of the time. I write in airports, trains, hotel rooms… I can write anywhere.
Jo Nesbo
I started [in television] as a local sportscaster in Oklahoma City and that will always be my love. It’s kind of what I live for.
Chris Harrison
One of the upsides of tourism is that people begin to take themselves a little more seriously (and think their) culture is worth something. So rather than disparaging the local culture, they vitalize it.
Paul Theroux
Part of Washington keeping its promises is a focus on directing more dollars into our local classrooms.
Mark Kennedy
One reason I left local news was that I was tired of the constant musical chairs among news directors.
Jessica Savitch
My stepfather gave me a Kodak camera when I was 17 years old. I started working at a local photo store in Le Havre, France, taking passport pictures and photographing weddings.
Patrick Demarchelier
I applaud the American Cancer Society for all they do to eradicate smoking. Their local, state and national efforts help to discourage young people from taking up this deadly habit and the resources they provide have helped numerous smokers quit.
Allyson Schwartz
But I think it’s up to a local congregation to determine whether or not a marriage should be blessed of God. And it shouldn’t be up to the government.
Tony Campolo
Local conservation programs can help our communities shape thoughtful growth.
Will Rogers
I’d heard he had started a fistfight in one of the seedier local taverns because someone had insisted on saying the word “utilize” instead of “use.
Patrick Rothfuss
I think that in this globalised world, the local is going to become more and more important – it is a paradox. You see it in Western Europe more and more. Eastern Europe is still coming out of the Soviet uniform cultural era, but this kind of separation and nationalism is very obvious now in Western Europe.
Robert Dessaix
My day-to-day local issues are rooted in an underlying fear of death.
Alex Karpovsky
Visit your local supermarket or retail chain. You’ll experience a lot of visual stimulus, but it’s unlikely that your other senses will encounter any compelling messages.
Martin Lindstrom
While I’ve been asked to run for Congress, I really believe we need to defend freedom locally. And by doing that, by just standing at the local level we can make a massive difference.
Matt Shea
There’s nothing you can learn in three years studying media at university that you can’t learn in just one month on a local paper.
Kelvin MacKenzie
Way back in 1979, as a guest on a local TV show in Arkansas, then Hillary Rodham was quizzed about not taking her husband’s last name when they got married and keeping her job as a lawyer while being first lady of the state.
Tamara Keith
The hero, therefore, is the man or woman who has been able to battle past his personal and local historical limitations.
Joseph Campbell
You might be a redneck if your local ambulance has a trailer hitch.
Jeff Foxworthy
I believe in local control of education.
Russ Feingold
No method of procedure has ever been devised by which liberty could be divorced from local self-government. No plan of centralization has ever been adopted which did not result in bureaucracy, tyranny, inflexibility, reaction, and decline.
Calvin Coolidge
It’s been in the back of my head for five or six years, but more on the local level to get involved and try to create a better environment for my children and grandchildren.
Jon Runyan
Magnum photographers were meant to go out as a crusade … to places like famine and war and … I went out and went round the corner to the local supermarket because this to me is the front line.
Martin Parr
I still support the right of local communities to make up their own minds about whether or not they want to permit fracking.
Hillary Clinton
I spent hours as a kid on the putting green of the local golf course imagining I was sinking a putt to win the Masters.
Mike Weir
We encourage others to find a local Earth raper and make them pay for the damages they are inflicting on our communities… Furriers, meat packers, bosses, developers, rich industry leaders are all Earth rapers . We must inflict economic sabotage on all Earth rapers.
Craig Rosebraugh
If I had a religious experience, what I know for sure is that I would stop doing philosophy and would start doing religion, teaching classes in religion, preaching in a local church. That is fine and noble activity. But I do not feel entitled to engage in it. So for me philosophy is my fate.
Simon Critchley
When I started to get involved in the crime issue, people said, “it’s a local issue.” I said, “No, there are lots of ways the federal government can help.” And the best way the federal government can help, and did in the Crime Bill, is to find programs that work around the country and help them spread.
Charles Schumer
Anna followed, keeping a sharp eye out for things he might back into or over. She wondered if Isaac did this all the time-and, if so, how he avoided getting photos in the paper with captions like “Local Alpha Trips Over Child” or “Wolf Versus Street Sign, Street Sign Wins.
Patricia Briggs
The challenge, then, is to take minds and hearts formed over the long millennia of living in local troops and equip them with ideas and institutions that will allow us to live together as the global tribe we have become.
Kwame Anthony Appiah
NBC was trying to convert all of their local programming to color right away to encourage the sale of the sets, so I barely remember working in black and white, although I do know that I did do it, but there was not a major difference, though.
Jim Henson
Only 50 years ago persons with intellectual disabilities were scorned, isolated and neglected. Today, they are able to attend school, become employed and assimilate into their local community.
Nelson Mandela
The Local Paper here asked that me books be banned……..THE HIGHEST PRAISE for an Irish writer.
Ken Bruen
Somewhere around the turn of the century, it stopped being hip to say you never watched TV. Adults are much more likely to find something to engage them on television than they are at the local multiplex. Edges are being cut on television all the time, but at the movies only now and then.
Tom Shales
My dad loved Scotland, so we would pile into his caravan and head for the Highlands, to Fort William and Loch Ness. It was such an adventure – my siblings and I were allowed to roam and explore the local beaches. We loved the freedom of those trips.
Rick Astley
I’ve got to find local farmers and get natural foods.
Sharon Jones
As state and local laws mutate and change in favor of greater tolerance, perhaps cannabis will find it’s proper place in the home medicine chest.
Chris Kilham
We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that ‘except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it’ I firmly believe this; by our partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and a by word down to future ages.
Benjamin Franklin
Local companies don’t have to internalize their costs, and few actually do, but they tend to more often because the owners live there and they have to show their face in town, and their kids play with other kids.
Paul Hawken
I’m a farmer’s market girl, so if you go and get beautiful, fresh fruit, that’s local, and it hasn’t been frozen yet, it’s pretty fantastic.
Tracee Ellis Ross
Mickey is one of the prime examples: Mickey has never been suspected of being an American export. It was deja vu. They gave him a local name and he’s been accepted everywhere he goes.
John Hench
There are a good number of people creating black metal and black metal inspired music in the northwest. Much of this music is radically noncommercial and exists only on a very local, private level.
Kristoffer Rygg
Contrary to what you think, not all preternatural beings hang out at the local Supernatural Pub looking for humans and dates.
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Read the editorial page of your local paper. It introduces you to opinion and can be terrifically provocative and perhaps a great motivating force for you to get involved in your community, regardless of your political ideology.
Sarah Jessica Parker
I realized that the only possible response was to go to my wonderful local cafГ©, Maison Bertaux, check everyone was well, eat a little cake and then make art. To me, making art, and in particular public art, is always an assertion of our humanity and our strength.
Martin Firrell
I’m a big fan of featuring all of the local shellfish and seafood provided.
Mario Batali
America is a bottom-up society, where new trends and ideas begin in cities and local communities…My colleagues and I have studied this great country by reading its newspapers. We have discovered that trends are generated from the bottom up.
John Naisbitt
It must be remembered that there is no real reason to expect anything in particular from mankind; good and evil are local expedients – or their lack – and not in any sense cosmic truths or laws.
H. P. Lovecraft
Every believer is commanded to be plugged in to a local church.
David Jeremiah
Jaws’ was the definitive filmmaking turning point for me. It came out in the summer of ’75 and I saw it an obsessive 55 times. They even ran a very embarrassing article about me in the local paper, about the weird kid who’s seen ‘Jaws’ 55 times.
Victor Salva
My mom has this great skiing event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, every year for a local charity.
Joely Fisher
One of the things that’s interesting is that the PC has always had a huge amount of scalability. It was sort of the wild dog that moved into Australia and killed all the local life because it could just adapt. There used to be these dedicated devices, like dedicated word processors.
Gabe Newell
The weirdest moments for me are in Los Angeles when I go to a mall that I’ve shopped at since I was 12, and now there’s like, massive pictures of our faces everywhere, at my local coffee shops now there’s these billboards of people wearing the T-shirts and stuff. It’s very strange, but it’s really exciting.
Lily Collins
He was silent for a moment, staring out the window into the rain; I imagined he was contemplating the fact that his family’s presence was turning the locals into giant dogs.
Stephenie Meyer
The national media will talk about national problems because it’s something that everyone in all 50 states can understand, but the reality is these are minor factors. These are local races. … The issues tend to be less ideological than for Senate races or races for president. … It’s about potholes and streetlights.
Larry Sabato
While I was in college, I became a page at ABC. Suddenly I was working for Good Morning America, local news, national news. The page is the lowest rung of the ladder, and it’s the also the place where you can ask any question and not feel dumb.
Anne Sweeney
Might it be that the Transition approach, of creating vibrant local economies with increased community ownership, meeting practical needs from as nearby as possible, and living well while consuming far less energy than we do today, could actually better meet our needs?
Rob Hopkins
You can achieve a shallow local maximum with A/B testing – but you’ll never win hearts and minds.
Jeff Atwood
Something horrible happens and I try to make it funny. It’s really a tortured life. You go to a salsa bar, at your local burrito stand, and you know, you think “how can you make a joke about this?”
Daniel Tosh
The problem with real estate is that it’s local. You have to understand the local market.
Robert Kiyosaki
My father was a local radio celebrity in the Albany area while I was growing up. That was his dream when he was a boy. I learned from him that some dreams are attainable and the penalty for inaction is regret.
Jonathan Weeks
Human language is local and changeable, and is therefore incapable of being used as the means of unchangeable and universal information.
Thomas Paine
Especially in local elections, because hardly anybody pays attention to those – but it’s really important who’s mayor and who’s on the city council, county commissioners, sheriffs, district attorney, and of course the school board.
Jello Biafra
I think that local school districts – not the federal government – should make the decision about how they teach science, biology, economics. I want my kids to be taught about evolution; I want my kids to be taught about other theories.
Bobby Jindal
I think Common Core is a disaster. That doesn’t mean there can’t be a little tentacle left of the Department of Education, like 5 percent, just in terms of local coordination, perhaps.
Donald Trump
The channel of art can only become clogged and misdirected by the artist’s concern with merely temporary and local disturbances. The song is higher than the struggle.
Adrienne Rich
As a former mayor, I know that local governments must have control over land use decisions.
Elton Gallegly
While local matters are happening around you, let your mind sail to the ocean of universal matters.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I used to write in a local coffee shop, but there was another guy, another writer, who kept sitting in my favorite seat. I would show up, and he would be there, and I would get exiled to a couch or something, and it would throw me off my game.
Lev Grossman
I come back to what I had said earlier: the policies might be there but are people benefiting from the policies? You do find that in many instances, though the policies exist, they are not having the necessary impact. That is a particular challenge in local government, because that is where all the services get delivered.
Thabo Mbeki
You know, my children go to a local, local catholic school just down the road.
John Deacon
Politicians are just a bunch of local bandits, sent by their local voters to raid the public treasury.
Will Rogers
There is nothing like the local church when the local church is working right.
Bill Hybels
I consider myself ‘local’ in Sweden.
Hannes Holm
I basically modeled my way through college, doing local runway shows in L.A. that don’t pay a lot and a couple of shows in N.Y. and S.F., and I probably made the same as the average 19-year-old waiter; I just worked less and was around beautiful girls, so it was nice.
Mehcad Brooks
Basically, I go to the local farmer’s market and decide to what to cook then, depending on what I find. Either my wife or I cook, and we usually finish a bottle or two of wine by the time we are done cooking and eating.
Jacques Pepin
With Michigan’s economic future on the line, we can’t afford to have our 500 local school districts marching in different directions. Instead, we need a high standards, mandatory curriculum to get all our students on the road to higher education and a good paying job.
Jennifer Granholm
To me, the last mile of the Internet that very few people have successfully really done. And this is like micro local. Things that really impact your life. And noone’s leveraging that yet.
Sarah Lacy
As more and more women, men and young people raise their voices and become active in local government, and more local leaders take action for the safety of women and girls, change happens.
Michelle Bachelet
We are taking challenges and turning them into opportunities by developing homegrown, local energy production to become independent from foreign sources.
Mitch Daniels
Our citizenship in the United States is our national character. Our citizenship in any particular state is only our local distinction. By the latter we are known at home, by the former to the world. Our great title is AMERICANS.
Thomas Paine
Time sheds a softness on remote objects or events, as local distance imparts to the landscape a smoothness and mellowness which disappear on a nearer approach.
William Benton Clulow
After I saved some money, I quit work and went to a local college.
Lloyd Alexander
Economic localization is the key to sustaining biological and cultural diversity – to sustaining life itself.В  The sooner we shift towards the local, the sooner we will begin healing our planet, our communities and ourselves.
Helena Norberg-Hodge
I was a hugely unchaperoned reader, and I would wander into my local public library and there sat the world, waiting for me to look at it, to find out about it, to discover who I might be inside it.
Patrick Ness
We all know the guy who sits at the end of the local bar telling the story of how he threw the winning touchdown pass in High School. I don’t want to be that guy. Racing gives us all the chance to be athletes again.
Don Panoz
A good community insures itself by trust, by good faith and good will, by mutual help. A good community, in other words, is a good local economy.
Wendell Berry
At least I sure hope it will – and I see good signs all the time, especially in things like the rise of local agriculture.
Bill McKibben
We’re raising our girls to understand the real meaning of Christmas, and to know that it’s most important to have Christmas in your heart. We go to our local mall and donate toys, and we say prayers for all the people in the world who might not be as lucky as we are.
Faith Hill
There are so many great animals in our local shelters that people don’t really know about. Annually, two to four million animals are euthanized, and we can bring that number down significantly by going to our local shelter and adopting and also by spaying and neutering your pets.
Beth Ostrosky Stern
States get to improve transportation infrastructure; that creates economic development, puts people back to work and, most important, enhances safety and improves local communities.
Corrine Brown
“Triennale in the City” is a scheme that is of priority for the sponsoring local government. For many local governments, revitalization is an important mission for the local community, and, therefore, the attitude to achieve this mission through the cultural and/or artistic activities should not be denied.
Yasumasa Morimura
Herbert, my father, was born in Britain but went out to Africa in his teens to join his father and built up an 18,000-acre ranch in what was then Northern Rhodesia, providing work for the locals. He was my hero when I was a boy.
Wilbur Smith
The American people are doing their job today. They should be given a chance to show whether they wish to preserve the principles of individual and local responsibility and mutual self-help
before they embark on what I believe to be a disastrous system. I feel sure they will succeed if given the opportunity.
Herbert Hoover
There was a time in the United States when most of our financial institutions were local. Which essentially meant that local communities were able to create their own credit, or their own money, in response to their own needs. We still depended on banks, but it was a much more democratic process.
David Korten
In the old days, when you took out a mortgage, it was probably through a local bank or a credit union, and whoever gave you your loan held on to it for life. If you lost your job or got too sick to work and suddenly had trouble making your payments, you could call a human being and work things out.
Matt Taibbi
One of humanity’s prime drives is to understand and be understood. All other living creatures are designed for highly specialized tasks. Man seems unique as the comprehensive comprehender
and co-ordinator of local universe affairs.
R. Buckminster Fuller
Not being invited in is one of the boxes on the “suspicious behavior” bingo form that every copper carries around in their head along with “stupidly overpowerful dog” and being too quick to supply an alibi. Fill all the boxes and you too could win an all-­expenses-paid visit to your local police station.
Ben Aaronovitch
The economy of the 21st century will come to center on agriculture. Life will be intensely and profoundly local in ways that we can’t conceive of today. Economic growth, as we have known it in a cheap energy industrial paradigm, will cease.
James Howard Kunstler
If we mean to support the liberty and independence which has cost us so much blood and treasure to establish, we must drive far away the demon of party spirit and local reproach.
George Washington
As soon as I moved to Princeton in 1978, I became fascinated by local history, much of it Revolutionary War-era; and I became fascinated by the presidency of Woodrow Wilson at Princeton University.
Joyce Carol Oates
One of the challenges of buying local advertising is, how do you know if it worked? How do you know if it’s got value? We’re moving toward an e-commerce experience for local, an Amazon-like experience for local.
Jeremy Stoppelman
Gypsy [Rose Lee], who was called Louise as a kid, gave her first performances here with her sister [June Hovac], playing for the local Masonic lodge halls. It was a tight-knit community, and the support and success the act enjoyed here enabled them to hit the road and make it in big-time vaudeville.
Karen Abbott
Living in an orgy of unrestrained consumption and economic growth accompanied by population expansion that ignores the carrying capacity of local environments will lead to disaster
Phil Harding
We need to take our passion and effect real change at the local, state, and federal levels, to help elect progressive leaders, and to stem the tide of division, fear and scapegoating.
George Takei
moral, adj. Conforming to a local and mutable standard of right. Having the quality of general expediency.
Ambrose Bierce
No local church can afford to go without the encouragement and nourishment that will come to it by sending away its best people.
David Penman
Local esteem is far more conducive to happiness than general reputation. The latter may be compared to the fixed stars which glimmer so remotely as to afford little light and no warmth. The former is like the sun, each day shedding his prolific and cheering beams.
William Benton Clulow
Barack Obama II is born in the Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu. His birth is recorded in two local newspapers.
Dinesh D’Souza
A local company has more accountability.
Paul Hawken
I’ve always been fascinated by the Gold Coast. The homes themselves are spectacular, unlike anything you’ll see other than in Newport, Bar Harbor or Palm Beach. It’s a very special area that, because of local demographics, is not going to survive much longer.
Nelson DeMille
Each of us is a tiny being, permitted to ride on the outermost skin of one of the smaller planets for a few dozen trips around the local star.
Carl Sagan
For the same reason that the members of the State legislatures will be unlikely to attach themselves sufficiently to national objects, the members of the federal legislature will be likely to attach themselves too much to local objects.
James Madison
Congress seems to thrive on breaking promises and passing unfunded mandates down to local government. It’s really just a matter of priorities.
Jared Polis
All the great things have been denied and we live in an intricacy of new and local mythologies, political, economic, poetic, which are asserted with an ever-enlarging incoherence.
Wallace Stevens
We are going to set up a branch of the St Petersburg Mariinsky Theatre here [on the Far Easter]. We are also planning to open local branches of the Hermitage Museum and the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet.
Vladimir Putin
I have lunch, flirt with some local grandmothers, undercut my flirting by crotching myself on the corner of a table as I leave. — “The Great Divider
George Saunders
Finally, I also come in recognition of the great work that has been undertaken by the NGOs and UN agencies that have been active for many years here, especially through the local staff and international staff here in Somaliland and in Somalia at large.
Jan Egeland
In order to survive, a plurality of true communities would require not egalitarianism and tolerance but knowledge, an understanding of the necessity of local differences, and respect. Respect, I think, always implies imagination – the ability to see one another, across our inevitable differences, as living souls.
Wendell Berry
The people of Florida in 2002 voted and approved class size limits in Florida to make sure that the State pays for smaller class sizes and not local districts.
Kendrick Meek
Supporting local food production is so much healthier for people. It’s better for the local economy, and it’s a lot of fun.
Jack Johnson
Fluorine has a protecting action against caries, but this is a local effect. If you drink it, you are running the risk of all kinds of toxic actions.
Arvid Carlsson
The Ottoman Empire . . . The rulers in Turkey were fortunately so corrupt that they left people alone pretty much – were mostly interested in robbing them – and they left them alone to run their own affairs . . . with a lot of local self determination.
Noam Chomsky
The inherent lightness or darkness of a form – its local-tone – is a given quality of all forms. It is affected by, but separate from, the light and dark areas that result from light falling on forms.
Nathan Goldstein
I’ve worked with Ed Bradley, Dan Rather and lots of different local news anchors.
Mika Brzezinski
Accessible local libraries are vital to communities and to children.
Nick Cave
Think global, act local.
Christiana Figueres
When I was a kid the highlight of my week would be doing a fossil hunt at the local quarry… that kind of thing.
Alice Lowe
I spent a lot of time standing on street corners [of New York City] talking to local residents. I spent time in bookstores and galleries. But most of the time, I really did not have much to do.
Ai Weiwei
I support local solutions to illegal immigration as protected by the 10th amendment. I support making English the official language of all documents and contracts.
Rand Paul
All thinking, knowing, perception, space-time, occur in consciousness. You are a non-local consciousness. The world is in you.
Deepak Chopra
Conway Twitty was always our local hero while I was growing up. He had a series of good bands. I wanted to sit in, if Conway would let me. And he did a couple of times.
Levon Helm
There is no such thing as a survivable or local nuclear war.
Jill Stein
When I’m in Italy on a Friday night, my first supper there is a big bowl of fresh pasta and a glass of local wine, sitting outside. There’s nothing better.
Alan Titchmarsh
GandhiВ’s idea of swadeshiВ—that local societies should put their own resources and capacities to use to meet their needs as a basic element of freedomВ—is becoming increasingly relevant. We cannot afford to forget that we need self-rule, especially in this world of globalization.
Vandana Shiva
But they don’t use law-they use law for their interests. They don’t go by law, international, federal, local-nothing! They go by whatever is expedient to protect the interests that are at stake.
Malcolm X
I get involved if a problem comes up after the death has been investigated by the local authority.
Michael Baden
The Red Sox are the local scapegoats. It’s hard enough to play baseball without being the local scapegoat too.
Michael Lewis
That is one of the reasons why we have raised this matter about the need to focus quite sharply on the function of local government, but also on the resourcing of local government. Because it may very well be that we say to local government, you have got to run an indigent policy.
Thabo Mbeki
A lot of the time, because of the polar bears you’re not allowed to go outside the door without your hunting rifle, even if it’s to go to the local shop. The polar bears will come from nowhere, and you’ll be eaten alive.
Richard Dormer
I think my biggest musical hero growing up was probably Ian MacKaye he set a great example for all of us local musicians. Still to this day I see him as the best example of a right-on musician.
Dave Grohl
If certain facilities, local facilities have to be arranged, the local authorities have to come. And that makes the Indian system slow moving, Indian administrative system slow moving.
Manmohan Singh
Priest organizations around the country, both local and national, should realize that their membership has a serious image problem and undertake programs to improve it.
Andrew Greeley
If there’s a single message passed down from each generation of American parents to their children, it is a two-word line: Better Yourself. And if there’s a temple of self-betterment in each town, it is the local school. We have worshipped there for some time.
Ellen Goodman
You have the biggest impact on controlling, on affecting local lives as mayor. It’s so much more important than being a state legislator.
Dick Murphy
Already published reports, as well as our own observations indicate that smallpox vaccination sometimes produces manifestations of leukemia. In children and adults observed in the clinics of Cracow, smallpox vaccination has been followed by violent local and general reactions and by leukemia.
Julian Aleksandrowicz
In China, remember, the the banks are arms of state policy. They loan because the local party official or regional party official tells them we need a new stadium. They are instruments of state policy.
James Chanos
Inequality is the cause of all local movements.
Leonardo da Vinci
Sometimes I fantasize about learning to write in Khmer. Because if I could write in Khmer, my perspective would be very different, because I’m both an outsider and insider and I see the writing in a different way. My description would be different from, say, a local writer.
Chath Piersath
And this fear that US models are replacing everything else now spills over from the sphere of culture into our two remaining categories: for this process is clearly, at one level, the result of economic domination – of local cultural industries closed down by American rivals.
Fredric Jameson
A subject I’m particularly passionate about is the criminal justice system and almost all of the policies that impact people’s lives are determined on a local level.
Aldis Hodge
I enjoy going on motorcycle trips and stopping in small towns and enjoying drinks with the locals.
George Clooney
Being banned from UK will be minor irritant for [Donald] Trump, but catastrophic for local community around Turnberry.
Corri Wilson
We were into the Speedway. We’d take a train out to the Speedway where farmers had flatbed trucks with bleachers on them. They’d park in the infield and we’d sit on those. Our heroes weren’t the drivers, they were the pit crews. That’s because we were local, and we knew what was going on.
Kurt Vonnegut
The view of the local scene through the eyes of a native participant in that scene is a different window.
Kenneth Lee Pike
You have to wear a different face when you’re interacting with the larger culture. And you can be more of yourself at home or in the local market or in the local church speaking your own language. That was my sense growing up as a Vietnamese refugee in San Jose.
Nguyen Viet Thang
Local and state governments have outrun the federal government. The EPA has served notice that it will enact a rule requiring CO2 reductions by major emitters in the absence of major legislation. But it’s a blunt instrument that is a little more difficult to use than a legislative remedy.
Al Gore
A local spirit will infallibly prevail much more in the members of Congress than a national spirit will prevail in the legislatures of the particular States.
James Madison
My father was an engineer – he wasn’t literary, not a writer or a journalist, but he was one of the world’s great readers. Every two weeks, he’d take me to our local branch library and pull books off the shelf for me, stacking them up in my arms – ‘Have you read this? And this? And this?”
Janet Fitch
I don’t need to be asking for money for local museums and other projects just to make me look good back home.
Jim DeMint
People go back to the stuff that doesn’t cost a lot of money and the stuff that you don’t have to hand money to over and over again. Stuff that you get for free, stuff that your older brother gives you, stuff that you can get out of the local library.
Black Francis
What a feat of transmission: the emotive powers of the book, with no local habitation, pass safely from writer to reader, unmangled by printing and binding and shipping, renewed and available whenever we open it.
Lynne Sharon Schwartz
Books were not looked upon as things unobtainable due to economic circumstances or class status. My grandfather stole an entire set of Dicken’s from the local library.
Bob Hartley
Since shotguns are not military weapons, your local sporting goods dealer will have good information about them, as long as you aren’t black, Spanish, or a white freak.
William Powell
I hate it. I just do. That [artificial turf], local news, the IRS, and hair dryers are the four worst inventions of the century.
Beano Cook
In addition to being a nurse, I’m also a small business owner and I taught at a local community college. I’m also a proud mother of three and grandmother of six – all of them wonderful.
Diane Black
I am a regular if not exactly enthusiastic patron of my local bookshop. I try to buy at least some books there because I cling to the belief that it’s important to maintain those businesses which put a human face on the exchange of money for goods and services.
Will Self
I did quite enjoy the days when one went for a beer at one’s local in Paris and woke up in Corsica.
Peter O’Toole
We have been getting ready to recycle more e-waste by investing in infrastructure, providing grants to local government and working with industry.
Jay Weatherill
She [Eva Braun] was always complaining later on, “I know nothing that’s going on.” They [with Adolf Hitler] talked about other things: dogs, movies, music, Munich gossip, who was going with who, who was cheating on their spouses, who was drinking too much or trying to quit. All sorts of local things like that.
Gretl Braun
If you’re running for reelection in the House of Representatives race, you know, it’s very important to you that you be on fairly good terms with the local affiliates in the largest market in your area. I mean you don’t want to antagonize them.
Robert Waterman McChesney
It is unconscionable for children in our prosperous country, or anywhere for that matter, to go without food. I implore everyone to contact their local and state representatives to encourage action to end hunger.
Kevin Nealon
You see, I used to do a certain amount of market research by going to the local drugstore and seeing what the truck drivers would put up. Now it’s all just copies from the latest best-seller list and damn little of anything else.
Jerry Pournelle
I see nothing for the treatment of my misery but the melancholy and very local palliative of articulate art.
Vladimir Nabokov
I engage with local politics because it affects people I love. And I engage in national politics because it affects people I love.
Shane Claiborne
Without the local library in my neighborhood, I don’t think I would have grown up to be a writer or a teacher.
Sharon M. Draper
We have wasted History like a bunch of drunks shooting dice back in the men’s crapper of the local bar.
Charles Bukowski
Nowadays, food needs to be healthy, local, sustainable and not filled with too much fat, salt or sugar. It should be slow-cooked and seasonal. That’s my vision.
Alain Ducasse
They crested a rise, and there it was, in the hollow between rolling hills—a low, square building, ghostly gray in the moonlight. “Is that it?” asked Hamilton. “It probably isn’t the local opera house,” groaned Ian.
Gordon Korman
If the constitution is not changed, then we will try to bring it down either before the referendum through the law by filing a suit in international or local courts, if we can, challenging the legitimacy of this constitution and the National Assembly.
Saleh al-Mutlaq
People will be able to raise their concerns: what are local officers doing about the drug dealing in the local park? What’s happening about the pub where all the trouble is? And the police will have to respond.
Theresa May
Growing up north of San Francisco, I immersed myself in the local landscape and in books about Native Americans, cowboys, and pioneers that seemed to ground me in it, but to pursue culture in those days meant being spun around until dizzy and then pushed east.
Rebecca Solnit
To be saved is here, local and mortal
A. R. Ammons
[Columbia House] magazines were how I found out about the punk world going on in New York. Because of what I read, at the age of 15, I hounded the local record store to order a copy of Horses [1975] for me by Patti Smith.
Michael Stipe
It goes to local authorities and even to members of Parliament so that individual citizens almost become people who want to sit and wait for their member of Parliament to come and solve the problem. Now that won’t take you anywhere. And if you follow it, you will see that it feeds corruption in the country.
Wangari Maathai
Local television shows do not, in general, supply make-up artists. The exception to this is Los Angeles, an unusually generous city in this regard, since they also provide this service for radio appearances.
Fran Lebowitz
It is important to explain fully to the local areas with sincerity. We will also think, of course, about the development promotion of the communities.
Shinzo Abe
Our Government is proud to support the Provincial Metis Housing Corporation and its local partners, like Yorkton Parkland Housing, and all of the important work they do in our province to help those in need. With a roof over their heads, all Canadians can prosper as we work together towards eliminating homelessness.
Garry Breitkreuz
My worry about the New York Times is that it’s got the only position as a national elitist general-interest paper. So the network news picks up its cues from the Times. And local papers do too. It has a huge influence. And we’d love to challenge it.
Rupert Murdoch
While Congress can’t overturn the Supreme Court, we can provide carrots and sticks to prevent local governments from unfairly taking property from landowners.
Stephanie Herseth Sandlin
My goal is to make Italian food clean and accessible and beautiful and tasty, with simple ingredients that people can find at a local grocery store, because people don’t want to go to a gourmet shop in search of items that will sit in their pantry for years after they use just a teaspoon or pinch of them.
Giada De Laurentiis
It is now well known, however, that men enter local politics solely as a result of being unhappily married.
C. Northcote Parkinson
The best way to travel abroad is to live with the locals.
Zach Braff
I went to the local schools, the local state primary school, and then to the local grammar school. A secondary school, which technically was an independent school, it was not part of the state educational system.
John Hume
You can find old Jewish newspapers from Detroit that have my promotional ad in them. It was a totally insane time in my life. Paul Rudd was also a bar mitzvah emcee, you know? It was like being a local rock star in Detroit.
James Wolk
I can finally go home and tell the constituents, law enforcement, and leaders in Washington state that Congress is treating the meth problem with the same urgency and commitment that local communities have been treating it with for years.
Rick Larsen
Our conscience, our faith, our local community, even our online hobby clubs – all civilize us.
Amity Shlaes
My ideal city is more like the city (New York and Paris come to mind, but it sort of applies to all) that existed up to and including the 1930s, when different classes lived all together in the same neighborhoods, and most businesses of any sort were mom-and-pop, and people and things had a local identity.
Luc Sante
It is hard to be enthusiastic about the economy’s prospects when house prices are falling: Households spend less, small business owners can’t use homes as collateral for loans and local governments are forced to cut jobs and programs as property-tax revenue disappears.
Mark Zandi
A local church will only be as great as its conception of God.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
There is no question we need higher academic standards and at the local level the rigor of the Common Core state standards must be the new minimum in classrooms.
Jeb Bush
Health experts working on a union backed screening program to detect bladder cancer in a Georgia chemical plant were stunned when the local (ACS) cancer society not only didn’t support the program, but tried to discourage participation in it.
Jack Anderson
All my books take a long time to research. I spend several months researching before I start writing, and in the middle of writing I often have to stop and look up stuff. At my local library, I am one of the best customers! The research takes several months.
Linda Sue Park
Staring Girl I once knew a girl who would just stand there and stare. At anyone or anything, she seemed not to care She’d stare at the ground, She’d stare at the sky. She’d stare at you for hours, and you’d never know why. But after winning the local staring contest, she finally gave her eyes a well-deserved rest.
Tim Burton
Because sometimes you just have to dance like a madman in the Self-Help section of your local bookstore.
David Levithan
Drink heavily with locals whenever possible.
Anthony Bourdain
Most people unfamiliar with the men in a new town might search for love until they find it. I picked out some guy on my second day in LA, who worked at the local bicycle shop, and handed my virginity to him. “You can fill a tire? Sounds good to me. Let’s call it a date.” Needless to say he wasn’t Mr. Right.
Kathy Griffin
Many in local government will ask why should only a few areas have the freedoms and benefits of Enterprise Zone status while the majority lose out?
Andy Sawford
Anyone with special abilities earns a differential return on that flair, which we economists call a rent. Those few with extraordinary P.Q. (Performance Quotient) will not give away such rent to the Ford Foundation or the local bank trust department. They have too high an I.Q. for that.
Paul Samuelson
Throughout my life, I’ve seen the difference that volunteering efforts can make in people’s lives. I know the personal value of service as a local volunteer.
Jimmy Carter
We have to deal with where we are. We have to create cooperatives, we have to create intentional communities, we have to work for local cooperation where we are.
Jerry Brown
In the absence of a limitation on local enforcement powers, the states are bound by the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution to enforce violations of the federal immigration laws.
Russell Pearce
What I’ve found in working less is you start to get a bit more involved in the more real politics, which is local politics that affect what’s going on in your own community.
Tom Hodgkinson
My sister’s the type who religiously watches the fear segments of her local Eyewitness News broadcasts, retaining nothing but the headline…Everything is dangerous all of the time, and if it’s not yet been pulled off the shelves, then it’s certainly under investigation — so there.
David Sedaris
The more local and settled a culture, the better it stays put, the less the damage. It is the foreigner whose road of excess leads to a desert… a man with a machine and inadequate culture… is a pestilence. He shakes more than he can hold.
Wendell Berry
An honest politician has no goodies to toss around. This limits his effectiveness profoundly, because political power in India is dispersed throughout a multi-tiered federal structure; a local official who has not been paid off can sometimes stop a billion-dollar project.
Aravind Adiga
I think one of the most important skills of a local organizer of a local economy is an ability to put on a terrific street party.
David Korten
Sometimes local, state and federal laws so clearly run afoul of the Constitution that the court must step in and strike them down. In most cases, the court performs this admirably and with great restraint.
Mike DeWine
The reality is that capital punishment in America is a lottery. It is a punishment that is shaped by the constraints of poverty, race, geography and local politics.
Bryan Stevenson
The history of African-American repression in this country rose from government-sanctioned racism. Jim Crow laws were a product of bigoted state and local governments.
Rand Paul
The only time I get recognised is when I go somewhere that is showing ‘Coupling’ on local television.
Gina Bellman
I like this idea of identification with the local team. I think it’s great. That’s what an orchestra should be. It’s an orchestra for its hometown, and it serves the people.
Esa-Pekka Salonen
The big opportunity – and where the most disruption is – is in local media.
Vivian Schiller
I have consistently made it very clear that I will vote a straight Democratic ticket, just like I do every election. From the local Constable to the President, I will be voting for every Democrat on the ballot.
Henry Cuellar
Life does not stand still for families and local communities when our brave men and women are deployed, but we can make their time apart more bearable by recognizing their sacrifice and fulfilling our commitments to them.
Mark Pryor
You cannot go beyond a certain limit in your expenditure if you want to bring back money from your local market, which is very small after Pakistan.
Satyajit Ray
I think it is a simple statement of principle that in a democracy you should make your MPs work harder for your vote and try and get at least majority support in their local area, and that in a nutshell is what AV does.
Nick Clegg
Unless you know the mountains and the forests, the defiles and impasses, the lay of the marshes and swamps, you cannot maneuver with an armed force. Unless you use local guides, you cannot get the advantages of the land.
Sun Tzu
It’s not my intention to be understood. I will continue writing for a readership that is fundamentally local. Because if you want to produce universal writing, you run the risk of losing your local knowledge. Your views are so universalist that the street aspect disappears.
Sarnath Banerjee
A Local Government Stationery Store is something to behold. It’s like walking through the back of a cupboard into a really dull Narnia.
Sally Phillips
I think it’s really useful to create parameters. The term you use can be forwarded into something more like a grid, a rubric, a system that you apply to all environments, and in so doing you create a situation in which you can locate local color, local differences within new environments.
Kehinde Wiley
I’m a pastor of a local church. I’m not a televangelist. I’ve never had a televised program. I’m a pastor. A pastor’s role is to care and comfort, encourage, teach, and everything that I do, even when I meet with world leaders, is from a pastor’s heart.
Rick Warren
As a chef, I had started working with groups like Share Our Strength and various local food banks in New York, raising money for hunger-related issues. And not only me, but the entire restaurant industry has been very focused on this issue.
Tom Colicchio
Many of the green places and open spaces that need protecting most today are in our own neighborhoods. In too many places, the beauty of local vistas has been degraded by decades of ill-planned and ill-coordinated development.
Al Gore
When absolute control and rigid obedience pose as love within the family and the local faith-community , we produce trained cowards rather than Christian persons.
Brennan Manning
I always like to get local music when I’m in another country.
April Winchell
Home Star is a common sense idea that would create jobs and provide a boost to local economies, while helping families afford their energy bills. By encouraging homeowners to invest in energy efficiency retrofits, Home Star would create 170,000 manufacturing and construction jobs that could not be outsourced to China.
Peter Welch
In the last 10 years, in narcotics task forces, in a number of violent crime task forces, we’ve worked very closely together with state and local law enforcement.
Robert Mueller
On the road you can really be more regular about it and work it into daily routines. There’s no town that doesn’t have a gym. And if you find one that actually doesn’t, you can go to the local high school. They always have one.
Aaron Tippin
In Cyberspace, the First Amendment is a local ordinance.
John Perry Barlow
It was still the custom of the countryside to build with local materials produced as close to the selected site as possible, for transport was difficult, even the best of country roads being more fitted for horseback traffic rather than heavy loads.
Flora Thompson
As a member of the House Committee on Small Business and because of my own experience as a small business owner, I am appreciative of the impact these small businesses have on our local economies.
Melissa Bean
I would go see local bands play, and noticed how many girls were there to see the band, and that’s what inspired me.
Phil Ehart
Start with local press first. Start with people you know. Don’t pitch every journalist.
Ben Parr
A man who has lived in many places is not likely to be deceived by the local errors of his native village; the scholar has lived in many times and is therefore in some degree immune from the great cataract of nonsense that pours from the press and the microphone of his own age.
C. S. Lewis
There are no Russian units in eastern Ukraine – no special services, no tactical advisors. All this is being done by the local residents, and the proof of that is the fact that those people have literally removed their masks.
Vladimir Putin
The first thing my family did when we moved was join the local church. The second was to go to the library and get library cards.
John Grisham
I think politicians in America don’t speak up because their local lobbyist has them shut up.
Donald Trump
I don’t have any complaints about homosexuals being married in a civil ceremony. But I don’t think that the government ought to require religious organizations, churches, should perform marriages between homosexuals if a local congregation decides otherwise. I believe in the autonomy of individual churches.
Jimmy Carter
The people are learning that you cannot leave decisions only to leaders. Local groups have to create the political will for change, rather than waiting for others to do things for them. That is where positive, and sustainable, change begins.
Wangari Maathai
At least here in Stockholm if you go out to any of our 4 metal clubs and talk to ten guys you can be sure nine of them play in a band! The bad thing is there is no underground movement here anymore. Going to a show with local band’s ten years ago would mean at least 300 people, now you can be lucky if 50 shows up!
Johan Hegg
I describe my look as a blend of mother goose, cinderella, and the local hooker!
Dolly Parton
Youve got to have a good public education system so small-business owners, when they locate to an area, are confident their kids are getting the best education possible. I feel strongly about local control in school districts.
Jon Tester
International business, once allowed to stalk uncontrolled, killed the local, the small, the quirky.
Alexander McCall Smith
I used to go to my local pub and it was like a sanctuary, nobody dared ask for an autograph. You went in there for a ploughman’s and a pint, and you went home and watched TV. Believe me, there’s more to watch on British TV than American, except for CNN right now. But yeah, I miss it.
Phil Collins
The standardization of world culture, with local popular or traditional forms driven out or dumbed down to make way for American television, American music, food, clothes and films, has been seen by many as the very heart of globalization.
Fredric Jameson
In some of the middle colonies the towns and counties were both active and had a relation with each other which was the forerunner of the present system of local government in the Western States.
Albert Bushnell Hart
You use the word “Infinity” very glibly…. Have you ever been there? Time and space are extensions of the mind, the will. Which means that infinity is a purely local phenomenon. You can turn over a stone and find it crawling there. Or you can make it yourself out of whatever materials are at hand.
Mike Carey
All politics are local, whether in Kabul or in Canada.
Chris Alexander
We used to have our own plane with the band’s name on the side. It was a dream come true. You drive to a local airport. There’s none of this checking in stuff; you just get on the plane.
Joe Elliott
Future public education will require involvement and collaboration among various local, civic, private and nonprofit entities, a concept I like to refer to as community entrepreneurship.
Donald Bren
Wine is a part of society because it provides a basis not only for a morality but also for an environment; it is an ornament in the slightest ceremonials of French daily life, from the snack to the feast, from the conversation at the local cafT to the speech at a formal dinner.
Roland Barthes
Most nanny-state initiatives begin on a local level.
David Harsanyi
We have the ability to achieve, if we master the necessary goodwill, a common global society blessed with a shared culture of peace that is nourished by the ethnic, national and local diversities that enrich our lives.
Mahnaz Afkhami
Not only did I get to play with these great international musicians, but I also had the opportunity to jam with the local celebrities in Toronto, people like the Walsh Brothers, David Wilcox, Kim Mitchell and the like. It was a great learning experience.
Jeff Healey
An Inuit hunter asked the local missionary priest: If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell? No, said the priest, not if you did not know. Then why, asked the Inuit earnestly, did you tell me?
Annie Dillard
These children should be enrolled in Independent Living programs designed by state and local governments to prepare them to enter the workplace, or attend college, and successfully manage their lives.
Charles Bass
I’ve got a nice little crafty deal with the people in Barbados; 10 days out there teaching the locals how to play darts for an hour a day. Get paid for that as well.
Eric Bristow
No sane local official who has hung up an empty stocking over the municipal fireplace is going to shoot Santa Claus just before a hard Christmas.
Al Smith
There is no regard for human lives, or local national interests. It is because the West, despite its hypocritical rhetoric (political correctness) does not really consider non-whites and non-Christians as human beings.
Andre Vltchek
You are omniscient as ever, Dumbledore.” “Oh, no, merely friendly with the local barmen.
J. K. Rowling
My father was an electrical engineer who worked at Westinghouse in Pittsburgh. When I was growing up, my mother wrote humor columns for the local paper. She was the Erma Bombeck of Murrysville, Pa.
Jason Kilar
In autumn 2012 I conducted a dedication and blessing service following the Civil Partnership of two wonderful gay Christians. Why? Not to challenge the traditional understanding of marriage – far from it – but to extend to these people what I would do to others: the love and support of our local church.
Steve Chalke
If you have a plan, we want to hear it. Tell your community leaders, your local officials, your governor, and your team in Washington. Believe me, your ideas count. An individual can make a difference.
George H. W. Bush
That’s one of the cool things about going to local bars: seeing what people are doing and jamming with them. I’m a huge advocate of jamming with others; you learn a lot. So I love to go and do that – even if people wipe the stage up with you.
I used to sleep on the floor in friends’ rooms, returning Coke
bottles for food, money, and getting weekly free meals at a local temple
Steve Jobs
Globalisation, which benefits only multi-national companies and takes away all sense of local or national pride and identity, is the biggest threat facing all the member states of the EU.
Steve Blake
Consciousness is non-local and does not depend on words to communicate.
Bernie Siegel
While local economies may experience significant price imbalances, a national severe price distortion seems most unlikely in the United States, given its size and diversity.
Alan Greenspan
Globally local commerce is a $12 to $14 trillion market. If we get 10 percent of that, we’ll be very happy.
Andrew Mason
In America, we need to develop communitywide structures of democratic ownership, we need to work out cooperative development, we need to work out participatory management, we need new ecological strategies developed at the local city, state, regional level.
Gar Alperovitz
A majority in all parties do, I think, want to see local government recover its old vigour and independence.
Ferdinand Mount
I like to encourage people to give locally. It’s easy to find and call a local no-kill shelter and see what specific things they need, and believe me, all of them are always in need of something.
Andy Lally
A wide range of social, collective phenomena can be made to emerge from the interactions of autonomous agents operating to simple local rules
Robert Axtell
She thought she brought a gift of compassion for those exhausted souls who had not received a chest portion from the people who raised them. If compassion and therapy did not work, she could always send her patients to the local pharmacy for drugs.
Pat Conroy
The right wing has had a radio apparatus for years and years, so they’ve had minor leagues – they’ve had local rightwing guys who’ve become national rightwing guys, and who build slowly, and that’s how it goes. We haven’t had that. It isn’t like we have a farm team.
Al Franken
I come from a blue collar family, but my personal life isn’t. I didn’t get the gene that my grandfather had in spades. He was a local hero. Built the church that I went to. Built the house I grew up in. Steamfitter, pipefitter, electrician, mechanic and plumber. I wanted to do those things. But it just didn’t come easy.
Mike Rowe
State governments seek local remedies for the globally fabricated deprivations and miseries in vain – just as the individuals-by-the-decree-of-fate (read: by the impact of deregulation) seek in vain the individual solutions to the socially fabricated life problems.
Zygmunt Bauman
Just ask the local people for the best food. Don’t rely on a guidebook.
Masaharu Morimoto
Well the Bombay film wasn’t always like how it is now. It did have a local industry. There were realistic films made on local scenes. But it gradually changed over the years.
Satyajit Ray
Sri Krishna is said to be an avatar, which is a human way of trying to define very big. That is to say that Sri Krishna is not from the local area network, but he has come from a world that is different because his mind is different.
Frederick Lenz
For the first time federal, state and local bureaus of investigation are coordinating their effort, to serve as eyes and ears and protect us against further attacks.
George Pataki
I’m going to bring in something called the London Living Rent. These are homes where rent is one third of average local earnings.
Sadiq Khan
The band would play on the night off for the local hotel bands and we’d back all the different acts. So I’d been advised by good friends of mine to come back to Hawaii. Oh, I loved Honolulu, playing at a place right on the beach at Waikiki!
Martin Denny
The difference between de jure and de facto segregation is the difference between open, forthright bigotry and the shamefaced kind that works through unwritten agreements between real estate dealers, school officials, and local politicians.
Shirley Chisholm
I don’t like to be described as a Southern writer. The danger is, if you’re described as a Southern writer, you might be thought of as someone who writes about a picturesque local scene like Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Gone With the Wind, something like that.
Walker Percy
I feel really uncomfortable writing about Sudan when I’m not there. It always looks different. When you’re outside Sudan it’s easy to lose sight of how much of what happens is driven by local politics. And when you’re in America in particular, there’s this sense that what D.C. has to say is the only thing that counts.
Rebecca Hamilton
Irish people are educated not only about artistry but local history.
Fiona Shaw
The local painters were my idols…These artists, too, were grown-ups, but they were grown-ups who could still see! Their eye was still in love! Like mine!
Frederick Franck
I like being able to go to a local pub and have great food and particularly love pubs that welcome my dogs.
Kevin Spacey
Local commerce, without question, will be one of the fundamental use cases enabled by mobile devices over the next several years.
Andrew Mason
People’s belief in their own local reality-tunnels keep us all far stupider than we ought to be.
Robert Anton Wilson
Some newspapers have a hands-off policy on favored politicians. But it’s generally very small newspapers or local TV stations.
Bob Woodward
For decades, community colleges have been the backbone of American workforce training. Because they are nimble and closely attuned to local community needs, they are inherently positioned to be influential leaders of the movement for a sustainable economy.
Ed Begley, Jr.
It is the highest form of culture and craftmanship in art to use local materials. That way you stand a chance of adding to culture. The other way you are in danger of merely imitating it.
Miles Franklin
In China, Internet surveillance has already become a profitable industry. In fact, a growing number of private firms eagerly assist the local police by aggregating this data and presenting it in easy-to-browse formats, allowing humans to pursue more analytical tasks.
Evgeny Morozov
Major changes become possible if you work in a participatory manner, listen to local people, diagnose what the problems are, provide training and identify where there are opportunities for mobilizing local resources to take action.
Ruth Simmons
Basically, right before college I got into the Guinness book for my feet and started to do local commercials and little radio spots, just little things and found I really liked it.
Matthew McGrory
There’s nothing revolutionary about Saturday Night Fever . You can see the same kind of movement at your local disco.
Gene Kelly
The only true and effective “operator’s manual for spaceship earth” is not a book that any human will ever write; it is hundreds of thousands of local cultures.
Wendell Berry
Jesus is the hope of the world and the local church is the vehicle of expressing that hope to the world.
Andy Stanley
It is a high Christian privilege to pray for one another within each local church body and then for other believers throughout the world. As a Christian minister, I have no right to preach to people I have not prayed for. That is my strong conviction.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
Traditional Anglo-Saxon intolerance is a local and temporal culture trait like any other.
Ruth Benedict
We also call for a healthy food system that prioritizes sustainable healthy local food production.
Jill Stein
The bottom line is that we have entered an age when local communities need to invest in themselves. Federal and state dollars are becoming more and more scarce for American cities. Political and civic leaders in local communities need to make a compelling case for this investment.
Mick Cornett
Let’s review the cost-free techniques that we’ve learned so far for raising an achievement-oriented, obedient, drug-free, virgin adult: Calamity, Praise, Local Theater, and flat feet. Another key element is “Strong Father Figure / Fear Thereof.”
Tina Fey
The very valuable time of the humanity often passes with the incredible stupidities and with the local matters not worth a penny!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
With a small fraction of the hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the Iraq war, the US and Australia could ensure every starving, sunken-eyed child on the planet could be well fed, have clean water and sanitation and a local school to go to.
Bob Brown
For the ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle (home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics) he feels himself master of his fate, but against major events he is as helpless as against the elements. So far from endeavoring to influence the future, he simply lies down and lets things happen to him.
George Orwell
How thoughtful of God to arrange matters so that, wherever you happen to be born, the local religion always turns out to be the true one.
Richard Dawkins
Global vision, local win.
Jack Ma
I was previously involved in local and state politics, but not national, because grassroots democracy starts at the bottom. This was the breaking point for me, though – and it made the case that in order to fight locally, we have to fight nationally; we can’t afford to neglect any area of life in this democracy.
Jill Stein
So I went down the local supermarket, I said “I want to make a complaint, this vinegar’s got lumps in it”, he said “Those are pickled onions”.
Tim Vine
A major danger in using highly abstractive methods in political philosophy is that one will succeed merely in generalizing one’s own local prejudices and repackaging them as demands of reason. The study of history can help to counteract this natural human bias.
Raymond Geuss
Overall the cost of living in Ho Chi Minh City is cheap and if you can stay away from Western restaurants and use just local products in your everyday life it’s really cheap.
Doug Rice
The local TV news is the greatest danger in your life. It’s all crap.
Ray Bradbury
The Tea Party is simply a loose description of local activism driven by Americans who want smaller government and more self-reliance. That sounds like what the Founding Fathers had in mind, does it not?
Bill O’Reilly
Casting the locals is my primary concern because all the other things you assume will be manageable.
Gus Van Sant
Public libraries are the sole community centers left in America. The degree to which a branch of the local library is connected to the larger culture is a reflection of the degree to which the community itself is connected to the larger culture.
Russell Banks
Our duty to ourselves, to posterity, and to mankind, call on us
by every motive which is sacred or honorable, to watch over the safety of our beloved country
during the troubles which agitate and convulse the residue of the world, and to sacrifice to
that all personal and local considerations.
Thomas Jefferson
Dermot Reeve was so self-obsessed that even on the local nudist beach he only admired himself
Simon Hughes
Innovations that are guided by smallholder farmers, adapted to local circumstances, and sustainable for the economy and environment will be necessary to ensure food security in the future.
Bill Gates
Regardless of whether we are required to purchase medical insurance, know that we can only buy real health insurance in the produce section of the local supermarket.
Joel Fuhrman
In K-12, almost everybody goes to local schools. Universities are a bit different because kids actually do pick the university. The bizarre thing, though, is that the merit of university is actually how good the students going in are: the SAT scores of the kids going in.
Bill Gates
I want to make it clear as Premier and as local member that I strongly support the Renewable Energy Target. Our message to the Federal Government and to Canberra is stick to the Renewable Energy Target.
Denis Napthine
The Freemen have 987 levels of membership, the first three of which are achieved merely by filling out an application. The 8th level is granted upon full acceptance into the local lodge, the 13th following Initiation, the 21st at the end of the Initiate’s second week, and the 89th the first time he brings snacks.
Adam Rex
That was part of the whole original concept. We were thinking, it’s off-season, let’s do a really fun, local-oriented event, raise money for good causes and bring some music to the valley.
Andy Kaufman
There`s a reason people pause their lives to engage in political activism and pressure their local political leaders. Because as a whole, even if you can`t identify any one instance, as a whole pressure works and sometimes it starts with something as simple as pushing the button on the intercom.
Rachel Maddow
Travel should rub off Local Prejudices and provide an enlarged and impartial view of Men and Things.
Josiah Tucker
My aim in photography is always to convey a mood and not to impart local information. This is not an easy matter, for the camera if left to its own devices will simply impart local information to the exclusiveness of everything else.
Alvin Langdon Coburn
Chesterfield 1, Chester 1. Another score draw in the local derby
Des Lynam
Her heart was broken perhaps, but it was a small inexpensive organ of local manufacture. In a wider and grander way she felt things had been simplified.
Evelyn Waugh
I worked at a local country club that I never belonged to. I did random tasks in the pro shop and supposed to be in charge of the register, but that didn’t go so well. They quickly realized I was better with people, not computers.
Shelley Hennig
But since September 11, we have made every effort to try to work closely with state and local law enforcement.
Robert Mueller
My whole deal when I do accents or dialects is I gotta fool the locals. If I fool the locals then I’ve done my job.
Brion James
We still have community, but we don’t seem to have local community. Even in a small town where you know your neighbors and your mother’s down the street, they’re not in arm’s length.
Helen Fisher
I don’t think we can go into important local elections next year… with Tony Blair as leader and expect to keep many of the councillors we’ve got now.
Frank Dobson
Sure there are dishonest men in local government. But there are dishonest men in national government too.
Richard M. Nixon
I have a great love for cuisine, so Im always interested in local food, and there are so many interesting dishes, spices and ingredients in India.
Romain Grosjean
I started performing at home as a kid putting on shows and lip-syncing Michael Jackson for the grown-ups. Then, in musicals and plays in school. At 17, I was performing in coffee shops and in parking lots at Phish shows. At 18, I had a band that played local shows in the Northwest.
It is tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children in child laws which are truly stupid… These schools should get rid of unionized janitors, have one master janitor, pay local students to take care of the school.
Newt Gingrich
A people can prosper under a very bad government and suffer under a very good one, if in the first case the local administration is effective and in the second it is inefficient.
Annie Besant
5,000 years of human history should not be overthrown by the acts of a few liberal judges or by the acts of a few local elected officials.
Karl Rove
I spent twenty years of my life trying to recruit people out of local churches and into missions structures so that they could be involved in fulfilling God’s global mission. Now I have another idea. Let’s take God’s global mission and put it right in the middle of the local church!
George H. Miley
Hitler produced a local “lab experiment”; he provided me with an ideology in the same way that Marx provided one for Lenin. My task is to turn this ideology into a world movement.
George Lincoln Rockwell
We need to establish platforms for teachers to initiate their own changes and make their own judgments on the frontline, to invest more in the change capacities of local districts and communities, and to pursue prudent rather than profligate approaches to testing.
Andy Hargreaves
I hope to begin a new plan… not sitting down to local matter but walking and watching.
Samuel Palmer
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
By travelling across frontiers, on horseback and in the imagination, Montaigne invited us to to exchange local prejudices and the self division they induced for less constraining identities as citizens of the world.
Alain de Botton
DNA is a quantum computer that localizes a non local omnipresent consciousness or spirit into space time energy information and matter.
Deepak Chopra
The local interest of a State ought in every case to give way to the interests of the Union. For when a sacrifice of one or the other is necessary, the former becomes only an apparent, partial interest, and should yield, on the principle that the smaller good ought never to oppose the greater good.
Alexander Hamilton
It’s not always possible to sit down and eat at home in this day and age of fast-paced living, but if you are going to eat out, do so as a family and support all the great local places in your areas. I’ll still eat at the same diner I did as a kid with my parents.
Michael Symon
They usually have two tellers in my local bank, except when it’s very busy, when they have one.
Rita Rudner
I had wanted to play drums since the age of 9 when I saw a drum set in the window of a music store for the first time. We took lessons at a local music school and began playing together after about 6-9 months of lessons.
Jack Irons
Modern dynamical systems theory has a relatively short history. It begins with Poincare (of course)… [to whom] a global understanding of the gross behavior of all solutions of the system was more important than the local behavior of particular, analytically-precise solutions.
Robert L. Devaney
Reality TV was to me the worst form of entertainment–the modern equivalent of paying sixpence to watch lunatics howling at the wall down at the local madhouse.
Jasper Fforde
If policymakers are serious about avoiding a society of TV ‘haves and have-nots,’ they should refrain from policies that favor pay-TV operators over the providers of our nation’s only free and local communications system: over-the-air broadcasting.
Gordon Smith
I played in garage bands and rock and roll bands when I was in junior high and high school and saw some of the great talents of all time in the local area where I lived.
David Cassidy
Parliament is a deliberate assembly of one nation, with one interest, that of the whole; where, not local purpose, not local prejudices ought to guide but the general good, resulting from the general reason of the whole.
Edmund Burke
It actually turns out to be much harder to really understand government across state local and federal.
Steve Ballmer
Ive been a radio and television news person since I was 19 years old. Im 57 years old now. But the advantage is that I have studied, investigated, and reported over those years on nearly every major story from wars and recessions to grass roots local issues.
George Noory
Many young and beginning farmers start out in local markets. Some stay there, and some scale up.
Tom Vilsack
I phoned the local ramblers club today and this bloke just went on and on.
Tim Vine
Get down to your local swimming pool or your local swimming club, join up and see what it’s like. I can guarantee that you’re going to meet some great friends. Just being involved in water makes me happy and I’d like to see that transferred across to other people.
Liam Tancock
Everywhere we walked we got plenty of attention due to the camera and sound men. The locals love to get on camera. […] I’d seen footage of Gandhi surrounded like this and always thought it was because he was very popular, but now I wonder if it was just because he had a camera crew with him.
Karl Pilkington
Election Day outside of big cities is different. For one thing, there are so few people in my town that each individual vote really does matter, and several local races have been decided by as many votes as you can count on one hand.
Susan Orlean
Even my novels offer passages in which the major character is imagined as a writer. In Joss and Gold, Li An is a business writer who edits her company’s weekly public relations magazine. And in Sister Swing, Suyin writes human interest stories for a free, local community paper, The Asian Time.
Shirley Geok-lin Lim
Do you want to know that your new life is real? Commit yourself to a local group of saved sinners. Try to love them. Don’t just do it for three weeks. Don’t just do it for six months. Do it for years. And I think you’ll find out, and others will, too, whether or not you love God. The truth will show itself
Mark Dever
As governor, there isn’t a lot I can do beyond that to crack down on crime. Law enforcement is really a local issue. It’s the cops’ job to tighten down on criminals.
Jesse Ventura
In a democracy, it is the people who are sovereign. Therefore, with regard to the promotion of democracy at the local, country and regional levels, civil society must have a stronger voice in all political processes.
Alfred-Maurice de Zayas
Eclecticism is the degree zero of contemporary general culture: one listens to reggae, watches a western, eats McDonald’s food for lunch and local cuisine for dinner, wears Paris perfume in Tokyo and ‘retro’ clothing in Hong Kong; knowledge is a matter of TV games. It is easy to find a public for eclectic works.
Jean-Francois Lyotard
When you assemble from your several counties in the Legislature, were every member to be guided only by the apparent interest of his county, government would be impracticable. There must be a perpetual accomodation and sacrifice of local advantage to general expediency.
Alexander Hamilton
Long ago, I did a five-and-a-half-hour-a-day, six-day-a-week talk show for four years, early on, in Los Angeles – local show. And when you are on that many hours with no script, you know, you get very comfortable, maybe overly comfortable with that small audience.
Betty White
Well, in pharmacology, if the effect is local, it’s of course absolutely awkward to use it in any other way than as a local treatment.
Arvid Carlsson
People essentially like local news better than network news.
Roone Arledge
The spy boom has been a beautiful windfall for architects, construction companies, IT specialists, and above all defense contractors, enriching thousands of private companies and dozens of local economies hugging the Capital Beltway.
Rachel Maddow
My time at Wofford was very dear to me. I chose to go there because the academics were so strong. I could have gone somewhere a little more local, but I wanted the academic challenges Wofford had to offer. It worked out pretty well for me obviously.
Brenda Jackson
Home is memory, home is your history, home is where you work. Some people want to abandon it and become truly local. But the questions are all there.
Toni Morrison
Places like Ministry of Sound are too druggie for me. Smaller, local places are where it’s at for me.
Katie Price
I’m noticing a new approach to art making in recent museum and gallery shows. It flickered into focus at the New Museum’s ‘Younger Than Jesus’ last year and ran through the Whitney Biennial, and I’m seeing it blossom and bear fruit at ‘Greater New York,’ MoMA P.S. 1’s twice-a-decade extravaganza of emerging local talent.
Jerry Saltz
The other problem is that the priority of many soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan is operational security: not getting killed. Now that is a very valid priority, but it has to be balanced against many other priorities, especially not killing too many locals in the process.
Yaroslav Trofimov
Anyone working for a big company might be skeptical that a large business, or even a strictly online business, can form the same kind of friendly, loyal relationship with customers as a local retailer. I’m saying it’s already been done because I lived it.
Gary Vaynerchuk
One bit of advice someone gave me – which I haven’t yet tried – is that if you go to an area where you might pick up a tummy bug, you should seek out the local probiotic yogurt. Eating it will introduce you to the local gut flora, apparently.
Anthony Head
As a school board member, I might have particular views about the ways we might increase the economics curriculum in a local high school, but I’m not sure I should mandate that for the entire country.
Zephyr Teachout
I’m always interested in the way people speak and move in their environment, in a very particular environment. I’m never interested in writing a kind of neutral, universal novel that could be set anywhere. To me, the any novel is a local thing always.
Zadie Smith
On the broad spectrum of solitude, I lean toward the extreme end: I work alone, as well as live alone, so I can pass an entire day without uttering so much as a hello to another human being. Sometimes a day’s conversation consists of only five words, uttered at the local Starbucks: ‘Large coffee with milk, please.
Caroline Knapp
Unfortunately the Republican tax cut will deny important revenues to many states facing their own deficits. This will create greater pressure for higher state and local taxes.
Dick Durbin
Pretty soon we’ll have robots in our society, you’re going to have a lot of automated processes that used to be done by people – this is happening. Society and technology is changing so fast, and the impact of the change on society and technology is global, not local.
Jose Padilha
I happen to be one who believes very strongly that state and local governments have their proper roles.
Don Nickles
There are certain areas where foreign investors can help the local people to generate wealth, and improve their quality of life. Some companies, for example, Del Monte, which produces pineapples in Kenya, pay a huge amount of taxes, I am sure, to the Kenyan government, and they do create jobs for thousands of locals.
Wangari Maathai
My brother Jim and I spent many wonderful summers working on dairy farms in Wisconsin owned by Mom’s cousins, and as members of our local Boy Scout troop.
Peter Agre
True progress lies in the direction of decentralization, both territorial and functional, in the development of the spirit of local and personal initiative, and of free federation from the simple to the compound, in lieu of the present hierarchy from the centre to the periphery.
Peter Kropotkin
It seems that nearly every week there is a problem where information is leaked or computers hacked. I’m conscious of keeping my details as safe as possible. I might be old but I’m still bright and prefer to go into my local branch and see a face.
Geoff Capes
You can’t really feel the direct change from one president to another versus people closer to you in local elections.
Eric Andre
You don’t have any communication between the Israelis and the Iranians. You have all sorts of local triggers for conflict. Having countries act on a hair trigger – where they can’t afford to be second to strike – the potential for a miscalculation or a nuclear war through inadvertence is simply too high.
Dennis A. Ross
The key to competing and surviving against Wal-Mart is to focus your business into a niche or pocket where you can leverage your strengths in the local marketplace.
Michael Bergdahl
People love to hear the brag of the local boy, because they want him to be great, but the foreigner must deny that he has any outstanding virtue – this is what will endear him to the locals.
Orson Scott Card
Eat where the people eat, not the hotels and touristy restaurants. If a local teacher makes $50 a month and they’re living decently, see what they do.
Rita Gelman
You may need help or information from some nongovernmental organization, and the local person heading that NGO may be some West Coast, liberal-educated, no-leg-shaving, Birkenstock-wearing female uniform-hater. And you gotta deal with her.
Dick Couch
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
If policy makers and program managers participate in an interdisciplinary assessment team, make informal visits to local families and have in-depth conversations with local providers and health authorities, the real needs and complex challenges of organizing good reproductive health services become apparent.
Ruth Simmons
The transitions will be tough because of the nature of a triathlon, you have to get changed and dry off or whatever. But this is going to be even harder because I have to do all that, then speak on the radio, do an interview with local telly, do some press and some interviews.
Greg James
While 45 of the 50 States have either a State constitutional amendment or a statute that preserves the current definition of marriage, left-wing activist judges and officials at the local levels have struck down State laws protecting marriage.
John Boehner
Being born not long after the war meant that money was tight. I grew up in a rural corner of Lincolnshire and my father worked on local farms. Being one of nine kids meant we didn’t have much.
Geoff Capes
a local train … moved gently off up the line with a very singular motion indeed, in which the leap of a frog, the bounce of a pogo-stick, and the canter of a very short fat pony all were brought to mind.
Honor Tracy
…because there are no local or State boundaries to the problems of our environment, the Federal Government must play an active, positive role. We can and will set standards. We can and will exercise leadership.
Richard M. Nixon
Started off local but thanks to all the haters, I know G4 pilots on a first name basis.
The slightest sign of stability is used by local authoritarian leaders to bargain for the sympathies of Western countries that are, for the sake of a balanced relationship, bound to turn a blind eye to obvious, blatant violations of human rights and the deconstruction of democratic institutions in these countries.
Garry Kasparov
New York City is just one node on the global cultural scene. Social media reflects the state of the world, so I’ve become more devoted to that. To be a NYC artist feels local and small. Social media feels now.
Kenneth Goldsmith
I like to go out and write. So I’ll often go to a Starbucks or a local coffee bar, and I’ll sit there and I’ll write. I can write pretty much anywhere.
Harlan Coben
I was commuting three to four hours a day, I had jobs for much of it. But I was always involved in going to some ensemble someplace. Taking my lessons at the local Jewish community center on Staten Island.
Jon Gordon
There’s nothing like castrating 20 pigs before lunch. I did that during school whenever the need arose. They’d call out the agricultural class and put us in trucks to go help the local farmers.
Fred Ward
The sex curriculum will be essentially by taught by the local gay community.
Michele Bachmann
I always like my trailer or hotel room to have fresh flowers or pillows I find at a local flea market – anything to personalize the environment.
Chloe Sevigny
The best poet is the man who delivers our daily bread: the local baker.
Pablo Neruda
My personal taxes are 53% of my taxable income. That’s 36% on the federal level and 17% for state and local.
Stephen A. Schwarzman
What’s interesting is this election year has made the citizen groups off-limits. All these citizen groups? – local, state, national? – that really do things and improve the country, they’re never asked to be in these electoral campaign discussions.
Ralph Nader
What I really like about Cuba is that you can go into a local bar in a provincial town and you’ll get jazz played at the highest standard – played often a cappella, or certainly with no amplification or whatever. Even if you are not knowledgeable about music, and I am not, you can find yourself really enjoying it.
John Gimlette
A hack writer who would have been considered fourth rate in Europe, who tried out a few of the old proven ‘sure-fire’ literary skeletons with sufficient local color to intrigue the superficial and the lazy.
William Faulkner
I guess I’m happy that I’m getting the attention. Otherwise, I’d just be playing in a local bar in front of my family members, and I’m sure they’d get sick of that in no time
Gavin DeGraw
Organizations that empower folks further down the chain or try to get rid of the big hierarchal chains and allow decision making to happen on a more local level end up being more adaptive and resilient because there are more minds involved in the problem.
Steven Johnson
President Obama has called for economic and political empowerment of women globally. The Equal Futures Partnership promotes removal of policy, legal, and regulatory barriers that hold women back at local, state and national levels.
Lael Brainard
The grand schemes of liberation, however indistinct and amorphous, can quickly be compromised, consumed by petty disputes and local hatreds.
Nigel Gibson
At the local government level, policies must be championed to increase the number of instructional hours in our schools as well as make the process of admission easier in order to enroll and keep a higher number of students in class.
Shaheen Mistri
We mustn’t assume that we are going to deinvent government solely from inside the Beltway or within one or two sessions of Congress. We will do it one step at a time, in one community at a time – at the local level and through local institutions like churches, nonprofit and volunteer organizations and families.
Jeb Bush
Along with my peers, I gripe about the increasing number of superhero films, and I’m sad that so many critics so uncritically use words like franchise, which should be reserved for your local Burger King.
David Edelstein
At some level, you have to be able to say, “This is my task.” It’s in small, local ways that you keep yourself alive and refresh ideas that are always going into dead abstraction.
Robert Hass
Topology is precisely the mathematical discipline that allows the passage from local to global.
Rene Thom
You are a cosmic happening rooted in a local event, NOT the other way around.
Michael Beckwith
One of the critical issues that we have to confront is illegal immigration, because this is a multi-headed Hydra that affects our economy, our health care, our health care, our education systems, our national security, and also our local criminality.
Allen West
Tragedies are always discussed as if they took place in a void, but actually each tragedy is conditioned by its setting, local and global. The events of 11 September 2001 are not exception.
Tariq Ali
I was dishwasher, then promoted to chef in a local kitchen in a restaurant in Seattle, and I was working on a building site as well, putting in insulation and painting houses, and then doing some classes at a community college nearby.
Alexis Denisof
I believe strongly that Occupy Wall Street had such limits because the local authorities were able to enforce, basically in our imaginations, an image of what proper civil disobedience is – one that is simply ineffective.
Edward Snowden
I was in fact pretty much – by the larger culture, by the local culture, by people around me, by people on TV – encouraged to imagine women as something slightly inferior to men.
Junot Diaz
Since I got to the big leagues, there’s been a whole lot of Direct-TV sold in Jamestown. People like to keep up with the local boy.
Darin Erstad
You have to be local. You have to focus on your local members of Congress.
Ezra G. Levin
Local innovation and initiative can help us better understand how to protect our environment.
Gale Norton
I have gone from local obscurity to national obscurity to international obscurity. Once I learn how to monetize obscurity, I will be rich.
Ernie J Zelinski
I like the concept of local education.
Donald Trump
I also remember the second band I was in ever. We were called Hybrid. We got a show at this local street fair, and we were playing on the back of a flatbed truck. There was an ad in the paper, and it said that ‘Hybird’ is playing. I was so mad.
Frank Iero
While I believe our Constitution allows for State and local governments to execute the power of eminent domain for those purposes that specifically serve the public good, condemning property solely to implement economic development plans is not serving the public good.
Solomon Ortiz
I am local, rural, communal. And I find that the whole world is a community. We have made progress in asserting our local community rights globally. We shall continue to do so.
Tewolde Berhan Gebre Egziabher
We [with my wife] felt like we had the ability to help people not just on a local basis, but on a national basis.
Jack Nicklaus
Brushes are crucial for applying glazes, sauces, and oils. The pastry brushes that you find in homestores can be pricey so pay a visit to your local hardware store and pick up a few paint brushes which are less expensive and work equally as well.
Bobby Flay
It is true that I once refused to eat haggis in Scotland and this did not sit well with the local population.
Rick Riordan
We’re not church planters. We are community planters and, as we work in our communities, we join local churches.
Shane Claiborne
To be clear, we the Department of Education want curriculum to be driven by the local level. We are by law prohibited from directing curriculum. We don’t have a curriculum department.
Arne Duncan
I love how Jamie Oliver makes seasonal, local foods in a rustic way, without a lot of fuss.
Sara Ramirez
The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.
Joel Salatin
Turn in your guns at your local church
Chuck Baldwin
I urge individuals around the world to stand up, and ask local leaders, if they haven’t already, to pledge to purchase cleaner cars, build green facilities, and buy green power like wind or solar energy. Our actions may determine if we become a casualty in the war for a habitable planet for generations to come.
Leonardo DiCaprio
Those of little faith mistake local cloud cover for general darkness. Keeping spiritually intact results in our keeping precious perspective by seeing “things as they really are.”
Neal A. Maxwell
Local and regional food systems are about opportunity.
Tom Vilsack
In pursuing certain virtues – colorful local effects, personae and personality, juxtaposition, close calls with nonsense, uncertainty, critiques of ordinary language – the current crop of American poets necessarily give up on others.
Stephen Burt
Don’t complain about being unable to afford high-quality local food when your grocery cart is full of beer, cigarettes, and People magazine.
Joel Salatin
The bottom line is that every single member of Congress has to get voted into office every two or six years. That means they need to look really good in their home district and state. That means good local press. That means people in their district thinking, “Man, I really don’t like Congress, but I like Senator Bob.”
Ezra G. Levin
The funny part is I feel like somebody is stalking me, like, at my local course and sizing up my game.
Stephen Curry
The Davis-Oliver bill will enhance cooperation with state and local authorities to ensure that criminal immigrants and terrorists are swiftly, really swiftly, identified and removed.
Donald Trump
Racial discrimination in public education is unconstitutional…..All provisions of federal, state or local law requiring or permitting such discrimination must yield to this principle.
Earl Warren
New York is perhaps the only place in America where you feel at the centre and not at the margins, in the provinces, so for that reason I prefer its horror to this privileged beauty, its enslavement to the freedoms which remain local and privileged and very particularized, and which do not represent a genuine antithesis.
Italo Calvino
I started playing guitar when I was in eighth grade, and that led to trying to write songs and trying to figure out how to play in bands. That led to meeting people, and getting into the local punk rock scene, and going to shows. So that was how I really got into the culture of it.
Chris McCaughan
From the industry’s point of view, the problem is not that coal companies blast the top off mountains, turning the area into a moonscape and polluting the air and releasing toxic chemical into what’s left of the local streams and aquifers. It’s that the people who live near the mines are too cozy with their cousins.
Jeff Goodell
I have passed all my days in London, until I have formed as many and intense local attachments as any of you mountaineers can have done with dead nature.
Charles Lamb
In Hawaii, some of the biggest radio stations are reggae. The local bands are heavily influenced by Bob Marley.
Bruno Mars
Let’s just be clear here. The vice president of the United States accidentally shoots a man, and he feels that it’s appropriate for a ranch owner who witnessed this to tell the local Corpus Christi newspaper and not the White House press corps at large, or notify the public in a national way.
David Gregory
With the Internet, you can get lots of info in advance, but a local person who knows how to work the system is invaluable.
Peter Menzel
I can accomplish all those. It’s really awkward, kind of, for me coming out here and being in a competitive golf atmosphere. I don’t get to do it but once a year, except my, like, local tournaments back home in Oakland.
Stephen Curry
Natural selection is a theory of local adaptation to changing environments. It proposes no perfecting principles, no guarantee of general improvement
Stephen Jay Gould
I’m disappearing from twitter for a while. Need a break from the bile. Local prejudice just seems to bring out the worst in some people.
Gary Lineker
Championing liberty begins at the local level. There is nothing more fundamental than the principle that a man’s home is his castle. Donald Trump’s career-long willingness to trample this right tells you everything you need to know about his bogus tea party sideshow.
Michelle Malkin
The great enemy of freedom is the alignment of political power with wealth. This alignment destroys the commonwealth – that is, the natural wealth of localities and the local economies of household, neighborhood, and community – and so destroys democracy, of which the commonwealth is the foundation and practical means.
Wendell Berry
East St. Louis-which the local press refers to as “an inner city without an outer city”-has some of the sickest children in America. Of 66 cities in Illinois, East St. Louis ranks first in fetal death, first in premature birth, and third in infant health.
Jonathan Kozol
Great food, like all art, enhances and reflects a community’s vitality, growth and solidarity. Yet history bears witness that great cuisines spring only from healthy local agriculture.
Rick Bayless
I started in high school with a teacher there. I also took lessons at the Conservatory of Music in Detroit. Detroit was very motivating. There were a lot of local people who inspired me like Kenny Burrell, Paul Chambers, Roy Brooks, Donald Byrd, etc.
Yusef Lateef
We have an idea that if something we’re doing isn’t actually earning money, or spending it, then it’s completely worthless. But if you start to work less, you can actually start to give more to society, but on a local level.
Tom Hodgkinson
I imagine a certain amount of consumer impulse will be replaced by community connection. You can already see it starting with things like the local food movement.
Bill McKibben
Nations have the wrong granularity. They’re too small to be global and too big to be local, and all they can think about is competing.
Nicholas Negroponte
That was for instance the case in Mocambique a couple of years ago, during the flooding catastrophe. Instead of co-ordinating assistance properly, to much time and resources was spent on fighting about the same helicopters and local guides.
Anna Lindh
When I was in high school, The Dave Matthews Band was a local band, and that was the first time I was starting to connect with a live band that was something that wasn’t on the radio or TV.
Jason Mraz
Thankfully, readers send a lot of stuff. They see stories in their local newspaper. Or friends of mine email me, what they heard or saw. … I’m very plugged in
Perez Hilton
I love being able to go on local flights when the weather is right. I’ve popped to the Isle of Wight, Cornwall and been mountain flying in Wales. When I got my licence I was over the moon, it was one of the greatest days of my life – it took two years to get!
Jay Kay
The Federal Government should be the last resort, not the first. Ask if a potential program is truly a federal responsibility or whether it can better be handled privately, by voluntary organizations, or by local or state governments.
Donald Rumsfeld
To help producers serve larger institutional customers like schools and hospitals, USDA has helped fund new regional infrastructure like cold storage warehouses, commercial kitchens and local slaughter facilities.
Tom Vilsack
It’s time to transition beyond our fossil fuel addiction to a just economy based on green jobs, renewable energy, and local organic food.
Winona LaDuke
I had been playing with my local band, Skinny Cat. I had been to quite a few auditions before UFO, managed to get the gig and then not want to do it!
Bernie Marsden
I actually got started in acting when I was in pre-school. I was really into dance and performing, so my mom had me in dance classes, and then I got involved in a local theater company.
Fiona Gubelmann
So if Arizona sees the federal government isn’t assuming its responsibilities, it creates local laws. But migration and keeping security on the borders is not a local or state issue, it’s a federal issue.
Vicente Fox
Citizens by birth or choice of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.
George Washington
I started my career in a town so small the local clinic was called Fred’s Hospital and Grill.
Joan Rivers
We should be moving toward local currencies not global or European currencies.
David Korten
My boyhood life in New York City has impressed me with the popular ignorance and also with the great need of something better than local lore and weather proverbs.
Cleveland Abbe
I wanted to be a librarian from a very young age. Some of my earliest memories are being taken to the local library. I ended up working as a bookseller. Becoming a writer was the logical offshoot of being a reader.
Michael Scott
We send our [peacekeepers] off to some disputed zone, full of local intrigue and power blocs and uncertainty and danger, and they are supposed to save lives not with their weapons, but through their competence and their character. And they do it.
Romeo LeBlanc
As both a local resident and a parent with a CF-afflicted child, I’m thankful for companies like Canon, Chase and Outback who believe that giving back to the community is critical to their role as corporate citizens.
Boomer Esiason
Not exclusively, but the bulk of our local economy should be covered by local currencies, which is more efficient than having global currencies which lose connection with reality in the markets, shops and communities of the people.
David Korten
On the day of the show, I sit down with someone that speaks very good English and someone who speaks the local language very well and work out what I’m going to say.
Phil Collins
… the fouling of the nest which has been typical of man’s activity in the past on a local scale now seems to be extending to the whole world society.
Kenneth E. Boulding
I’m not sure about these cookies … They came from the local 7/11 bakery, or whatever.
Mitt Romney
I tend to be a kind of left federalist. There’s a value to more power of certain kinds being positioned at a more local level.
Zephyr Teachout
I was introduced to lots of great music through my local record store. It was a place where people knew music and they knew me, and could make great suggestions and discoveries. Whether it is in the physical world or on-line, the value of a great and knowledgeable record store has not gone away
Peter Gabriel
I think the local food movement has been taken to idiotic extremes. And so I wrote about that and people got pissed.
Joel Stein
It would, of course, be hopeless to attempt to crowd into an international language all those local overtones of meaning which are so dear to the heart of the nationalist.
Edward Sapir
Journalism makes you think fast. You have to speak to people in all walks of life. Especially local journalism.
Terry Pratchett
Almost all government starts at a very local level at some point.
John Hickenlooper
There are times, like after a long day of work, when the thought of an easy drive-through is enticing. But then I remember how crappy I felt when I ate fast food in the past, and it inspires me to head to the grocery store or my local farmer’s market and whip up an easy but healthier option.
Alison Sweeney
We believed that growth through Local Government, and perhaps through some special machinery for bringing the wishes and influence of women of all classes to bear on Parliament, other than the Parliamentary vote, was the real line of progress.
Mary Augusta Ward
The site I landed on feels much more isolated than it really is; it’s almost magical. Within its limited radius, there was a whole range of the local ecology.
Martin Puryear
Earth is a living entity. And if it’s a living organism, then we have to have a reverence for all life. Food should be local, organic rather than grown with chemical fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides.
Satish Kumar
Every family in America knows they have to do a budget. Every small business in America knows they have to do a budget. Every local government, every state, knows they have to do a budget.
John Boehner
I think the rules will change and I think more and more young women are going to decide that having a family and taking care of a home is not a bad choice, but how do we subsidize it – not necessarily European-style socialism. It’ll have to be a new more creative, dynamic and local solution.
Christina Hoff Sommers
The Federal Constitution forms a happy combination in this respect; the great and aggregate interests being referred to the national, the local and particular, to the state legislatures.
James Madison
We are entering an era in which national government, instead of directing, enables powerful regional and local initiatives to work, where Britain becomes as it should be – a Britain of nations and regions.
Gordon Brown
In my local newspaper, they had this advert: ‘please look after your neighbours in the cold weather’. I live next door to this 84-year-old woman, and do you know, not once has she come round to see if I’m all right. The lazy cow hasn’t even taken her milk in for a fortnight.
Jack Dee
It is the local community that needs to own the commitment to education.
Adam Braun
Every time I traveled to a new city, I would learn about local heroes I did not know about, and I would learn about their very impressive contribution to their cities.
Jimenez Lai
The attacks on the Paris Metro in the 1990s were committed by members of the local Muslim community, immigrants from the Maghreb region of North Africa.
Otto Schily
If…we do not think that a local church is worthy of joining, why should we be considered worthy of serving in it?
Wayne Mack
Regarding local residents attempting to ban sex shops from their neighborhoods: You show me a parent who says he’s worried about his child’s innocence and I’ll show you a homeowner trying to maintain equity.
George Carlin
As a graphic artist, my job on a local paper was creating the advertising as well as working as a journalist on sports and community issues. There are many more jobs I’ve done in my day, I can’t remember them all.
Franny Armstrong
It is one of our most exciting discoveries that local discovery leads to a complex of further discoveries.
R. Buckminster Fuller
The USA should invade the USA and win the hearts and minds of the population by building roads, bridges and putting locals to work.
Paul Myers
Australian SF book publishing has undergone a boom recently, and sometimes it’s easier for new writers to sell a book to a local publisher first, which then makes a US edition more likely.
Greg Egan
The best way to be global is to be local.
Alex Atala
Golf is the only game that pits the player against an opponent, the weather, the minutest details of a large chunk of local topography and his own nervous system, all at the same time.
Mike Seabrook
I vote Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that gets police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.
David Letterman
When you scan the globe’s hot spots, every civil war and massacre, every act of terror and every clash between states has its unique local circumstances.
Atifete Jahjaga
You’d have to give people free rein to attack the local councils or to destroy the school authorities, like the students who break up the repression in the universities. It’s already happening, though people have got to get together more.
John Lennon
Do we really have to wander around apologizing for enjoying plot, just because James Wood and a few dozen other arch-aesthetes sniff at it? It’s like being careful not to sing pop songs in the shower because some guy in the local alt-weekly is a music snob.
Patrick Nielsen Hayden
Internal self-government under a local constitution was authorized by Congress and approved by the residents in 1952, but federal law is supreme in Puerto Rico and residents do not have voting representation in the Congress.
Dick Thornburgh
In the Gulf region and nationwide, small businesses are an integral and crucial part of local economies and communities. They should not be overlooked.
Dan Lipinski
Throughout my political career, I’ve believed in the concept of home rule. Some call it local control. Whichever phrase you use, the concept is the same – the best decisions are those made closest to those who will be impacted by the decisions.
Linda Lingle
I definitely look back at certain moments and don’t think I look good…but I know why! I didn’t have a hair stylist, I did all my own makeup, and I was going to the local fabric store for all of my outfits.
Gwen Stefani
You’d phone or knock on the door of your friend or neighbour if they hadn’t appeared at your local pub or bar for a few days, just to make sure they weren’t dead in the cellar.
Jason Flemyng
The war against Vietnam is only the ghastliest manifestation of what I’d call imperial provincialism, which afflicts America’s whole culture-aware only of its own history, insensible to everything which isn’t part of the local atmosphere.
Stephen Vizinczey
Unless you are building a new company from the ground up and can install caring as your businesses’ cornerstone, you have to be willing to embark on a completely cultural overhaul so that, like a local mom and pop shop, every employee is comfortable engaging in customer service, and does it authentically.
Gary Vaynerchuk
The local grocery store was a gathering, a community place. You knew the owner, if you didn’t have any money they’d let you go for a couple days. You talked. It was a friendly place. Supermarkets are totally impersonal. I mean, you may say hello to the checkout girl or something, but the personal connections are all gone.
Noam Chomsky
I completed the first three years of primary school in one year and was admitted to the local school the age of six directly into the fourth year, some two years younger than all my contemporaries.
Sydney Brenner
A true libertarian supports free enterprise, opposes big business; supports local self-government, opposes the nation-state; supports the National Rifle Association, opposes the Pentagon.
Edward Abbey
I stroll along, talk, I sign books, people buy me drinks, I forget where my hotel is, I get lost and fall into some local body of water… done it hundreds of times.
Terry Pratchett
Supporting local farmers is important to me, which is not only good for the local economy and better for the environment, there is evidence that eating locally grown food strengthens your immune system.
Suzanne Whang
Governments have supported airlines as if they were local football teams. But there are just too many of them. This is the only industry I know that has lost money consistently and makes money infrequently.
Richard L. Hanna
Texas has no income tax, which is a big draw for corporate executives who do business there. But it’s hardly tax-free. The property taxes are high for a Southern state. The sales taxes are high. One study found that the bottom 20 percent of the Texas population pays 12 percent of its income in state and local taxes.
Gail Collins
Grassroots organizing tends to be most available to big campaigns, but it’s actually most useful to small ones. You can’t win a presidential campaign without going on TV, but you can win a local election simply by organizing your community. NationBuilder levels the playing field.
Joe Greene
Nowhere has democracy ever worked well without a great measure of local self-government, providing a school of political training for the people at large as much as for their future leaders.
Friedrich August von Hayek
I’m addicted to email, but other than that, there are practical things – being able to buy a book on the internet that you can’t find in your local bookshop. This could be a lifeline if you live further from the sources.
Marilyn Hacker
At one end of the spectrum are the terrorist gangs within our borders, and the terrorist states which finance and arm them. At the other are the hard left operating inside our system, conspiring to use union power and the apparatus of local government to break, defy and subvert the law.
Margaret Thatcher
For instance, the Persian Gulf War was a miniature world war. It took place in a small geographical area. In this sense it was a local war. But it was one that made use of all the power normally reserved for global war.
Paul Virilio
The local church is the hope of the world.
Bill Hybels
We are very grateful for what the Ontario provincial government is doing, and for cooperation from provincial and local police forces all across Canada.
Paul Cellucci
I am a big Ellen fan. I have been one for quite a long time now. I used to do the local news talk shows with her in San Francisco, when we were both still kids.
Margaret Cho
When Bob came through Cincinnati, he wanted a girl singer to be on his show. There was a local contest, and my sister and I entered, but Bob said, Gee, I wouldn’t break up the team.
Rosemary Clooney
I paid my way through school doing set construction for film and television. I’m a member of Local 44. I was a construction coordinator on ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ for 4 1/2 years and ran their whole construction program. I did two other pilots as a coordinator for Aaron Spelling.
Michael Cudlitz
Christian proclamation might make the gospel audible, but Christians living together in local congregations make the gospel visible (see John 13:34-35). The church is the gospel made visible.
Mark Dever
As a precocious teen I dreamed of being Graham Greene. Well, as it turned out, I never wrote a great novel, sadly, and I never converted to Catholicism, happily, but I did do one thing he did. That is, in middle age I moved to a seaside town and got into a right barney with the local powers-that-be.
Julie Burchill
I try to make myself do things for other people when I’m feeling down. Like, you can call your local hospital and help out in the pediatric unit.
Abigail Breslin
Due to global warming, the coming winters in the local regions will become milder.
Stefan Rahmstorf
Egotism is a kind of buckram that gives momentary strength and concentration to men, and seems to be much used in Nature for fabrics in which local and spasmodic energy is required.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
So I went down my local ice-cream shop, and said ‘I want to buy an ice-cream’. He said Hundreds & thousands?’ I said ‘We’ll start with one.’ He said ‘Knickerbocker glory?’ I said ‘I do get a certain amount of freedom in these trousers, yes.’
Tim Vine
Local self-government…is the life-blood of liberty.
John Lothrop Motley
Undocumented immigrants produced $1.58 billion in state revenues, which exceeded the $1.16 billion in state services they received. However, local governments bore the burden of $1.44 billion in uncompensated health care costs and local law enforcement costs not paid for by the state.
Carole Keeton
If you would be just as content winning a local Golden Gloves fight as you would making a pile of money as a professional, then fine, go become a boxer. But if the whole idea is for you to get rich, my God, stay in school and learn a profession.
Gerald McRaney
I came to write after several mini careers. I did live theatre, managed a cosmetics store and was a local television personality.
Sandra Brown
We need to invest at the local party unit and focus our energy on turn out. That’s how we come back, and we can come back.
Keith Ellison
Hoping to instill my love of learning in other children, I taught my first class at a local elementary school the year my first book, ‘Flying Fingers,’ debuted; since then, I have spoken at hundreds of schools, classrooms and conferences around the world.
Adora Svitak
Local churches are ten times more segregated than the neighborhoods they are in and they are twenty times more segregated than the schools than the nearby schools.
Derwin L. Gray
Pay-TV companies that built their businesses on the backs of local and network broadcast signals should pay a fair price for access to that high-value programming.
Gordon Smith
When ownership is local and national, and various stakeholders work together, program innovations have a greater chance to take root and survive.
Ruth Simmons
I think some of these solutions are prepared in an office without a full understanding of the local situation.
Wangari Maathai
While about one-third of Americans believe in ghosts, you won’t find many exhibits on these spooky beings down at the local science museum. Why? Well, one explanation that you might consider, ghosts are just figments of our highly fertile imaginations!
Seth Shostak
My perfect morning is spent drinking coffee, eating porridge and reading the paper at a local cafe.
Anton du Beke
Accusations are made directly to Rome about theologians from persons who are not theologians. Some of these accusations are anonymous. The local bishop should be the one to relate to theologians to determine orthodoxy.
Godfried Danneels
When I visit a country, I like to experience local food.
Bruno Tonioli
Illegal immigration is not just a matter of interest in states along our border with Mexico. It is having an effect on local economies, schools, health care delivery, and public safety all across the country.
Roger Wicker
I think it true that, you know, sometimes things start to change even before a government changes and, actually, I think you can begin to see even the Labour machine beginning to understand that it has become over-reliant on targets and processes, that local governments have been over-bossed and bullied.
David Cameron
It is time to effect a revolution in female manners – time to restore to them their lost dignity. It is time to separate unchangeable morals from local manners.
Mary Wollstonecraft
God wants every local church to be the first place people think to go when they’ve really messed up…not the last.
Tullian Tchividjian
You have to be involved in terms of what’s happening in your local neighborhood and what issues are there.
Barack Obama
Problem with segregation isn’t that people can’t live in peaceful harmony singing “Kumbaya” – although that wouldn’t be bad. The problem is that many of these Whitopian communities are taking state, local, and federal resources with them.
Richard Benjamin
You realize just how long youve been away when you get home and start dialing 8 out of habit so you can get access to local calls.
Tom Berenger
There is now a desperate need for a London-wide left caucus of those interested in the GLC and local councils so that we can compare and discuss what is happening in each borough.
Ken Livingstone
Normally I’m really lucky because I can go down to my local shops and no one cares. I take the Tube and the bus so it’s kind of the perfect balance.
MyAnna Buring
In my home State of Minnesota, I have seen firsthand the importance of Byrne grants to local police in reducing crime and drugs and improving public safety.
Jim Ramstad
I’ve always noticed that Old Families, like plumbers and barbers and possibly drummers and detectives, seem to have some kind of reciprocity arrangement in the South. Members of the freemasonry could move anywhere … and still operate cozily in the local Old Family top drawer.
Celestine Sibley
Chess is a good way to learn, to keep your brain fit and the ego in check, a mental form of your local gymnasium. Those who see chess merely as a means of self-proof make the game experience uncomfortable and drive many of the better, more sensitive brains to analysis, correspondence, problems, studies and the like.
Peter Abelard
Bob Erlendson, a local piano player, taught me chord structure and which scales go along with them. Later, I began listening to [pianists] Bill Evans and McCoy Tyner. Then I got interested in [saxophonist] John Coltrane.
Lenny Breau
Usage tends to be global, while funding tends tobe local. When we allow it to happen, usage of a digital library is remarkably diverse and widespread.
Tom Peters
Handcuffing the ability of states and localities to develop clean fuels in the cheapest possible way, using local resources, is not sound or sensible policy.
Jan Schakowsky
According to DC’s HIV/AIDS office, three percent of the local population has HIV or AIDS… The DC City Council, perhaps on the theory that serving up another glass of wine is the way to help a drunk, is scheduled to vote on December 1 to legalize same sex marriage in America’s capital city.
Star Parker
I don’t like local, state or federal level of got mandating anything in our lives , in our families, and in our businesses, unless it comes to saving lives.
Sarah Palin
People move into a house a block down the road. You know who`s going in. You can see and you report them to the local police. Everybody`s their own cop in a way. You got to do it.
Donald Trump
At every level in our inventory, nothing seems special about our Earth, our Sun, our Galaxy, our Local Group. Evidently, mediocrity reigns throughout. Such is our niche in the Universe.
Eric Chaisson
I started acting when I was seven. And I went to a local drama school which is very well-known in London. Because of that, I started getting jobs, and I worked all the time as a child, pretty much non-stop.
Naomie Harris
There was very little art in my childhood. I was raised in South Carolina; I wasn’t aware of any art in South Carolina. There was a minor museum in Charleston, which had nothing of interest in it. It showed local artists, paintings of birds.
Jasper Johns
Yelp is in a very nice spot: local data, and especially review data, is one of the killer apps on mobile phones.
Jeremy Stoppelman
The life function of [the local church] is to love the God who created it – to care for others out of obedience to Christ, to heal those who hurt, to take away fear, to restore community, to belong to one another, to proclaim the Good News while living it out. The church is the invisible made visible.
Charles Colson
I’m pleased to see the progress made on the Windsor Regional Hospital project. This is an important project for our community in terms of the stimulus it is providing to the local economy and the vital role the new facility will play in providing state-of-the-art health care and treatment to Windsor residents.
Sandra Pupatello
Western civilization, because of fortuitous historical circumstances, has spread itself more widely than any other local group that has so far been known.
Ruth Benedict
Of course. I was on the run from evil spirits that wanted to kill me and now, according to the local paper, the law. Yet Richard Smith, cemetery sexton and death deity scholar, had a book for me to read in all my copious spare time.
Meg Cabot
The writer has a grudge against society, which he documents with accounts of unsatisfying sex, unrealized ambition, unmitigated loneliness, and a sense of local and global distress.
Renata Adler
I went to a local high school in Lancaster. Not much I can say about it; it was pretty much your typical public high school back in Pennsylvania.
Jonathan Groff
Evangelism and the local church are inseparable. It’s like the Good Samaritan seeking an inn for the one he rescued.
Reinhard Bonnke
Politics is so personal, vicious and immediate, how are you going to get anything done? Even the local politics where I live have gotten so ugly.
Robin Williams
We have our differences since the beginning of America. It’s a legitimate difference. What is the role of government, et cetera, federal, state, local?
Nancy Pelosi
I suspect that LaGuardia is an elaborate prank, and New York has a real airport nearby that only locals know about.
Dave Barry
Kids should go to college, but they should go to the best school they can afford to get through with minimal or no debt. That might mean going to a community college or an inexpensive local state school. Whatever it takes.
Mark Cuban
If you claim to be a follower of Christ, I encourage you to consider your present commitment to a local church.
David Platt
Every bit of money that we can bring from our federal transportation budget in Washington back here to Stewart Airport will benefit our local economy and our local residents.
Sue Kelly
I think the best way is to keep stressing, that, as we build out a new energy system, one of the best things about it, if we do it right, will be that it will be more local, more democratic, more distributed, and, in the long run, much more economically sensible.
Bill McKibben
Because we live in a condition of ubiquitous music and media, and near infinite technological memory, it is much easier for local cultures to find an audience that resonates with their music, whether local or globally.
The people in the southern provinces have no interest whatsoever to see British forces leave because they’re providing security, stability, structure, and relations have always been good … really between the British forces and the local Iraqis in this area.
Hoshyar Zebari
You may have seen have seen me in such places as your local market in a tabloid.
Tony Romo
The FBI continues to be a broken, anachronistic organization, but state and local law enforcement officials are much more attuned to the kind of threat we’re facing. I think that’s very hopeful, but it’s a long-term process.
Michael Scheuer
Rights might be universal but their enforcement must be local.
Murray Rothbard
I suspect that many corporations have begun to understand that they have an important role to play in the lives of their communities, and that allocating funds to support local groups helps them discharge that function and also burnish their image.
David Rockefeller
We have to do commerce differently because the WalMart system of big box chain retail will soon die. This means rebuilding local main street economies (networks of local economic interdependency).
James Howard Kunstler
Local competing businesses were thereby losing revenue.
John Warren Kindt
The greatest knowledge a person can possess is the address of the local library.
Albert Einstein
We need to confront honestly the issue of scale… You may need a large corporation to run an airline or to manufacture cars, but you don’t need a large corporation to raise a chicken or a hog. You don’t need a large corporation to process local food or local timber and market it locally.
Wendell Berry
The scarily brilliant Romantic poet and visionary William Blake dared to say what many of us have perhaps thought but kept to ourselves: “A good local pub has much in common with a church, except that a pub is warmer, and there’s more conversation.
Brian D. McLaren
The real opportunity is to harness the inventive power of the world to locally design and produce solutions to local problems.
Neil Gershenfeld
I’ve been through legislation creating a dozen national parks, and there’s always the same pattern. When you first propose a park, and you visit the area and present the case to the local people, they threaten to hang you. You go back in five years and they think it’s the greatest thing that ever happened.
Mo Udall
