A person in a rented apartment must be able to lean out of his window and scrape off the masonry within arm's reach. And he must be allowed to take a long brush and paint everything outside within arm's reach. So that it will be visible from afar to everyone in the street that someone lives there who is different from the imprisoned, enslaved, standardised man who lives next door.
Leadership is a two-way Street, loyalty up and loyalty down.grace hopper
CIRCA aims to make clowning dangerous again, to bring it back to the Street, restore its disobedience and give it back the social function it once had: its ability to disrupt, critique and heal society. Since the beginning of time tricksters (the mythological origin or all clowns) have embraced life's paradoxes , creating coherence through confusion adding disorder to the world in order to expose its lies and speak the truth.

Halfway down a by-Street of one of our New England towns stands a rusty wooden house, with seven acutely peaked gables, facing towards various points of the compass, and a huge, clustered chimney in the midst. The Street is Pyncheon Street; the house is the old Pyncheon House; and an elm-tree, of wide circumference, rooted before the door, is familiar to every town-born child by the title of the Pyncheon Elm.Nathaniel Hawthorne
Objectively, class differences in accent, dress, manners, and general style of life are very much smaller; and one cannot, strolling about the Street or travelling on a train, instantly identify a person’s social background as one can in England. Subjectively, social relations are more natural and egalitarian, and less marked by deference, submissiveness, or snobbery, as one quickly discovers from the cab-driver, the barman, the air-hostess and the drug-store assistant.anthony crosland
The Lennon-McCartney comparison was frequently made and that was an image that critics could relate to. But it wasn't something people in the Street could pick up on the way they'll pick up on someone who's really good-looking.
You may be a king or a little Street sweeper, but sooner or later you dance with the reaper!
So, then, Oxford Street, stonyhearted stepmother, thou that listenest to the sighs of orphans, and drinkest the tears of children, at length I was dismissed from thee.thomas de quincey
Maybe that's what is crazy: to want to be free. A lot of people wouldn't cross the Street for it.George Jonas
Andrea presented herself as a Street fighter intellectual, a bohemian freedom fighter, and someone who wanted to get to the bottom of things. That quote about Malcolm X is apt. Malcolm pointed out “The problem is WHITE PEOPLE.” Dworkin said, “The problem is MEN.” And for all the holes that can be poked in that cloth, there is something about that grain that is absolutely true, when you are the short end of the bolt.susie bright
The fate of the country does not depend on how you vote at the polls — the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot-box once a year, but on what kind of man you drop from your chamber into the Street every morning.Henry David Thoreau
We never really cared about all the things that other people cared about, you know? Like, people recognizing me on the Street never interested me. I've always been kind of suspicious of the world, anyway, so it's pretty easy for me to live in my own little world.meg white
When hopes and dreams are loose in the Street, it is well for the timid to lock doors, shutter windows and lie low until the wrath has passed.Eric Hoffer
And behind their frail partitions Business women lie and soak, Seeing through the draughty skylight Flying clouds and railway smoke. Rest you there, poor unbelov'd ones, Lap your loneliness in heat, All too soon the tiny breakfast, Trolley-bus and windy Street!john betjeman
The idea (for the painting ‘Room in New York’, 1932, ed.) had been in my mind a long time before I painted it. It was suggested by glimpses of lighted interiors seen as I walked along city streets at night, probably near the district where I live (Washington Square, New York, fh) although it’s no particular Street or house, but is really a synthesis of many impressions.Edward Hopper
Nowadays you don't go around on the Street kicking people, punching people because if you do (makes gun shape with hand), well that's it I don't care how good you are.bruce lee
No! How could I be defeated again by a pack of filthy Street rats?!
What, after all, is a better example of chaos theory than the harassment of a Street vendor in Tunisia leading to a civil war in Syria?
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season. The Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the Street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'
The interests of the IMF represent the big international interests that today seem to be established and concentrated in Wall Street.ernesto 'che' guevara
So here’s a question from one who believed, only a week ago, that Baghdad might just collapse, that we might wake up one morning to find the Baathist militia and the Iraqi army gone and the Americans walking down Saadun Street with their rifles over their shoulders. If the Iraqis can still hold out against such overwhelming force in Umm Qasr for four days, if they can keep fighting in Basra and Nassariyeh the latter a city which briefly rose in successful revolt against Saddam in 1991 why should Saddam’s forces not keep fighting in Baghdad?robert fisk
The fall of Wall Street is for market fundamentalism what the fall of the Berlin Wall was for communism.
When I make a portrait,I cannot limit it tothe lines of the head, for that head belongs toa body, it exists ina setting which influences it, it is part of a totality that I cannot suppress. The impression you produce upon me is not thesame if I catchsight of youalone ina gardenor if Isee you in the midst of a group of other people, in a living room or on the Street.Medardo Rosso
By the sympathy of your human hearts for sin ye shall scent out all the places — whether in church, bedchamber, Street, field, or forest — where crime has been committed, and shall exult to behold the whole earth one stain of guilt, one mighty blood spot.Nathaniel Hawthorne
