I know that Ihavethe bodyof a weak and feeble woman, but I havetheheart and stomach of a kingand a king of England too; and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain, or any Prince of Europe, should dare to invade the borders of my realm.
My loyalties will not be bound by national borders, or confined in time by one nation's history, or limited in the spiritual dimension by one language and culture. I pledge my allegiance to the damned human race, and my everlasting love to the green hills of Earth, and my intimations of glory to the singing stars, to the very end of space and time.edward abbey
Finnish forests: Let us remind the satellite pictures of the 1970’s winter in which the old forest appeared black and young forest and cut downs white. Already then the Finnish borders were like drawn on the map: White Finland between black Karelian and black Sweden. Finnish Forest Research Institute hicced up some time and then decided that the pictures are fake. . .pentti linkola
Whatever we saw in October 1941, cannot be compared to anything that we had seen prior, when our forces retreated from the Dniepr borders. Now, things like this no longer happen. Now, we can frown by ourselves.hovhannes bagramyan
Death borders upon our birth, and our cradle stands in the grave.joseph hall
I see art-making, especially that which comes from the margins of the mainstream, as a site of resistance, a way of interrupting and intervening in those historical and cultural fields that continually exclude me, a sort of gathering of forces on the borders. For the dominant hegemonic stance that has worked to silence and subdue gender and ethnic difference has also silenced difference based on sexual preference.
To reach the borders of the uncreated,Just let go! This is genuine gratitude.ippen
Art enriches itself by eliminating artificial barriers between people such as borders between countries.
We won’t be moving people, we will be moving the borders. It’s not a transfer.avigdor lieberman
A modern democracy is a tyranny whose borders are undefined; one discovers how far one can go only by traveling in a straight line until one is stopped.norman mailer
It's at the borders of pain and suffering that the men are separated from the boys.Emil Zatopek
I would define the baroque as that style that deliberately exhausts (or tries to exhaust) its own possibilities, and that borders on self-caricature. [...] The baroque is the final stage in all art, when art flaunts and squanders its resources.jorge luis borges
[L]ook at yourself right now... hoping to lose yourself your home, your certainties, the borders and boundaries of your life by means of a bundle of wood pulp, sewn and glued and stained with blobs of pigment and resin. People with Books . ... It makes me want to laugh.michael chabon
[My mother] closed the school the next day [after a visit from Castro's soldiers], because she knew that the purpose of education was the broadening and opening of children's minds. And she couldn't be a party to the systematic closing of minds, borders, freedoms and ideals.gloria estefan
Under the benignant providence of Almighty God the representatives of the States and of the people are again brought together to deliberate for the public good. The gratitude of the nation to the sovereign arbiter of all human events should be commensurate with the boundless blessings which we enjoy. Peace, plenty, and contentment reign throughout our borders, and our beloved country presents a sublime moral spectacle to the world.james k. polk
It is often hard to secure unanimity about the borders of legislative power, but that is much easier than to decide how far a particular adjustment diverges from what the judges deem tolerable. On such issues experience has over and over again shown the difficulty of securing unanimity. This is disastrous because disunity cancels the impact of monolithic solidarity on which the authority of a bench of judges so largely depends.learned hand
This remote kingdom, a place of ancient monasteries , fluttering prayer flags and staggering natural beauty . Less than 40 years ago, Bhutan opened its borders for the first time. Since then, it has gained an almost mythical status as a real- life Shangri-La , largely for its determined and methodical pursuit of the most elusive of concepts – national happiness.
To reach the borders of the uncreated, Just let go! This is genuine gratitude.
"We are too rarely interested in specifying what defines the concept 'music' in the spirti of indigenous poeples. We would be hard put to say (for whatever population or group we might choose) where music begins for them, where it ends, what borders mark the transition between speaking and singing."
