When I was young, I never bought records because my brother Joseph played saxophone and had a record player. I loved listening to his records: The Dorsey Brothers, Duke Ellington, all the big American jazz bands, and vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Ernestine Anderson, and Kitty White, a singer from the US who was a friend of Nina Simone. Nobody in America seems to know about her, but she was quite popular in South Africa.
Perhaps it is God's will to lead the people of South Africa through defeat and humiliation to a better future and a brighter day.Jan Christian Smuts
A new era has begun in South Africa. My government is removing racial discrimination. We want to be accepted by our African brothers.pik botha
At the piping of all hands,When the judgment-signal's spread—When the islands and the landsAnd the seas give up their dead,And the South and North shall come;When the sinner is dismayed,And the just man is afraid,Then Heaven be thy aid,Poor Tom.john gardiner calkins brainard
We went over there and fought the war and eventually burned down every town in North Korea anyway, someway or another, and some in South Korea too.… Over a period of three years or so, we killed off — what — twenty percent of the population of Korea as direct casualties of war, or from starvation and exposure?curtis lemay
In the South, you will get a lot of sugar — and by that we mean a lot of hugs and kisses. We don't air kiss in the South.
The war has now moved from China to South Eastern Asia, and is about to enter the stage of the war for all Asia.toshio shiratori
The East will be seen to rush to the West and the South to the North in confusion round and about the universe, with great noise and trembling or fury.leonardo da vinci
Our history is responsible for the differences in the South African way of life.pieter willem botha
The idea of an Afrikaner people as a cultural entity and religious group with a special language will be retained in South Africa as long as civilisation stands.pieter willem botha
As South Korea shows, active participation in international trade does not require free trade. Indeed, had South Korea pursued free trade and not promoted infant industries, it would not have become a major trading nation. It would still be exporting raw materials (e.g., tungsten ore, fish, seaweed) or low-technology, low-price products (e.g., textiles, garments, wigs made with human hair) that used to be its main export items in the 1960s.ha-joon chang
South Africa, so utterly improbably, is a beacon of hope in a dark and troubled world.desmond tutu
I know so well what becomes of unmarried women who aren't prepared to occupy a position. I've seen such pitiful cases in the South barely tolerated spinsters living upon the grudging patronage of sister's husband or brother's wife! stuck away in some little mouse-trap of a room encouraged by one in-law to visit another little birdlike women without any nest eating the crust of humility all their life! Is that the future that we've mapped out for ourselves?tennessee williams
Seated on top of Nilachala hill beside the Brahmaputra River, the Kamakhya temple has long been revered as one of the most powerful centers of goddess worship in South Asia. As one of the oldest of the 51 Sakta peethas or places of power that dot the Hindu mythological landscape, Kamakhya is believed to be the location where goddess’ own yoni or sexual organ lies. As such it is literally ‘the mother of all places of power’, with a history that can be traced at least 1200 years, and it remains one of the most vibrant centers of goddess worship in India .
...the South witnessed the birth of great devotee-musicians such as Ramadasa, Puranadaradasa, Annamacharya, and Kshetragnya.
Carnatic music being not the family heirloom of isolated families, but rooted in the community spawned a lot of talent , largely people who could participate in group singing, and of equal importance, several generations of composers, all in all in and around the cultural centre of s South India - Tanjaavur (Anglicized as Tanjore)
... and the art was in every corner and wall… a Mural of the Century of Progress in Colombia South America is rich in detail, painted by a student of the Fine Arts Academy of Chicago named Santiago Martinez; a name to remember…
Yet it must be remembered that the essential theoretical core of the book - the relationship between oversaving, foreign investment and imperialism - appeared in an article written in 1898, before his South African trip.
There will be great winds by reason of which things of the East will become things of the West; and those of the South, being involved in the course of the winds, will follow them to distant lands.
And the South Wind he was dressed With a ribbon round his breast That floated, flapped, and fluttered In a riotous unrest And a drapery of mist From the shoulder to the wrist Floating backward with the motion Of the waving hand he kissed.james whitcomb riley
In a march of onlya few hours, I had passed from the western to the eastern hemisphere and had verified my position at the summit of the world.It was hard to realise that on the first miles of the brief march we had been travelling due north, while on the last few miles of the same march we had been travelling due South, although we had all the time been travelling precisely in the same direction.Robert Edwin Peary
We joined long wagon trains moving South; we met hundreds of wagons going north; the roads east and west were crawling lines of families traveling under canvas, looking for work, for another foothold somewhere on the land.... The country was ruined, the whole world was ruined; nothing like this had ever happened before. There was no hope, but everyone felt the courage of despair.rose wilder lane
Conditions to the north of us, in the Voronezh and Steppe Fronts zone of action, and our offensive on Kharkov demands that we not lose time and we commit all forces so that we can draw off as many divisions as possible from Kharkov. And even if we do not draw them off, at least we will not give Manstein the ability to take any of his units from our part of the front. If we attract one or two German tank divisions - it will be the best contribution to the defeat of the enemy in the South.aleksandr vasilevsky
Nobody draws the light for covered wine rooms from the South or west, but rather from the north, since that quarter is never subject to change but is always constant and unshifting. So it is with granaries: grain exposed to the sun's course soon loses its good quality, and provisions and fruit, unless stored in a place unexposed to the sun's course, do not keep long.vitruvius
There is also an open air Tantric temple to the South of Bhubaneshwar that is dedicated to the sixty-four yoginis, each of whom is associated with a particular yogic ability. It is said that people still worship the sixty-four yoginis here on New Moon ( amavasya ) nights.
...Certain proto-populations occupying distinct areas of the Balkans could be distinguished on the territories of the cultural groups: in western part of the Balkans the proto-Illyrians, in the east the proto Thracians, in the South the Hellenes (i.e: Greeks), in the northern part of the Balkans the proto Daco-Mysians and in the southwest of the Central Balkans the proto Bryges.
Her plates are scarred by the sun, dear lass, And her ropes are taut with the dew, For we're booming down on the old trail, our own trail, the out trail. We're sagging South on the Long Trail, the trail that is always new.rudyard kipling
The trumpet! the trumpet! the dead have all heard: Lo, the depths of the stone-cover'd charnels are stirr'd: From the sea, from the land, from the South and the north, The vast generations of man are come forth.henry hart milman
On the dark earth Begochiddy built in the east a white mountain; in the South a blue mountain, in the west a yellow mountain, and in the north a black mountain, and he also made mountains surrounding all the dark earth and the colored mountains, and these were called Tsilth-nah-n’ deel-doi, which means colored mountains which appear and disappear; and in the center of the world Begochiddy made a red mountain.Hasteen klah
