I haven't been a leader - not at all.
Global climate change is real and we have a limited time to change our behavior or live with the consequences. We can all help by making small changes in our lives to letting our voice be heard by our governing bodies. As has always been the case in this country, if the people demand change, it will come.
I'm a very proud Australian, always bragging about our country wherever I am in the world.
Buying Gold Is Just Buying A Put Against The Idiocy Of The Political Cycle. It's That Simple!
We face neither East nor West: we face forward.
I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me.
At long last, the battle has ended! And thus, Ghana, your beloved country is free forever!
What I learned in politics (is that) it's a very enslaving place to be. It's hard to be free in politics and if the search for your spirit is to be free, it's hard.
We do need brothers and sisters to go into elected offices and political offices and do that, but my spirit is telling me something different. Because you are a Democrat or Republican you have to do this but you can't do that and so it's somewhat limiting in what you can actually do and I've done that.
As a matter of fact since Barack Obama has been president it is more overt - I believe - than it's been since the 1940's and 50's and so I am not surprised by it. I think it's an excellent teaching tool, particular for my sons and our people to understand that we still have to build within our community. We still have to work with one another. We still have to connect even with people outside of this country.
Our goal is to publish African poets in as many ways as possible.
Latino poets, are really having a significant impact on American poetics today.
Urban development in India... will be the biggest sunrise industry that any country has seen in any part of the world.
A country is not only what it does but what it tolerates,
The whole Twitter phenomenon is really indicative of what's happening in this country. And I say this in condemnation of myself as much as anyone else - we are growing into a nation that has no time, desire or capacity for truth. All we can handle is 140 characters of knowledge.
I was brought up as a Republican. But when I realized that at the end of the day there wasn't much difference between a Democrat and Republican, I became a libertarian.
And so popular culture raises issues that are very important, actually, in the country I think. You get issues of the First Amendment rights and issues of drug use, issues of AIDS, and things like that all arise naturally out of pop culture.
I continued a legacy of great skating from this country and I was able to capitalize on the reputation of the Canadian skaters that came before me. I especially mean Brian Orser.
If your Olympic Hero were to use the Worm in the 1996 Olympic Games, it would be so embarassing to all the other atheletes - and our country, mind you- that the USA would have finished behind Guam.
Cinco de Mayo is an important day. The Mexicans had to defend themselves from the French. It is historically significant, but it is not Mexican Independence Day.
When you move from a different country, it takes a while to make friends. I found myself being lonely a lot at first. In New Delhi, I had all my family. But Portland is one of those cities you can immerse yourself in and feel comfortable. People are so friendly.
I moved to New York first and was really apprehensive about moving to L.A., but I really, really like it.
Bernie Sanders has shown that socialism is no longer the barrier that it used to be during the Cold War.
I was born in Eastern Europe, in Latvia, and I'm fluent in Russian.
Interior liberty is universal.
I prefer to scare myself in the ordinary ways, Daddy. Like letting my children cross the country for college. Why bungee jump when you can put a kindergartener on a school bus? Now, that's real terror.
Liam learned that it was possible to appear to move forward when you were really standing still.
Well, you know, people don't know me as a country artist and I am new to the genre. But that's how I grew up singing.
Chicago - it's a mini-New York.
As a nation, China, is one of the most powerful countries around and if anyone can make something happen, if anything is in their control and they can make things happen and make things the best and look at their country as a beautiful place to come visit and our people are great they're going to do it. I feel like everything that hasn't been perfect over there is out of their hands. They've done everything they can to make it perfect.
The way the Europeans work, most girls get paid by their federation; their country pays them. Essentially the federations say go represent our country, race on whatever trade team you want, and here's your money. So you don't really make you're money on trade teams. Europeans make money through their country's federation. There's not a lot of money for women in cycling in Europe either.
US Cycling is doing a lot now with camps in different towns or different regions, but I think a great place, and I'm not sure how much it's been hit, is camps for people that are involved in other sports. Why not put on camps for high school kids that are cross-country runners, because those are the some of the best cyclists.
One of the things that defines a country song for me is that it's honest. It's not putting on a tuxedo to go eat at the Burger King. It's about a song being emotionally true to itself.
I just like to walk around New York, just put my iPod on and walk around.
I would imagine that Bret would taste like a warm goat cheese, and Jemaine would taste like harvati with dill. Hmm...I'm hungry actually.
I spent 10 years in New York doing theater.
It was only when I moved to New York that I realized tall is good.
I swear...I'll deliver the message for the love of my country.
Detroit, the heart of the country... I grew up on 10 Mile, 2 miles better than 8 Mile.
I'd like to go to Brazil I think. Do a little South America trip.
