Locality Quotes : pic 000087019
I moved to New York to work in theater, so my range of motion was really from where I lived - which was downtown, in the Lower East Side - to Midtown, where the theaters are. So I got to know New York, Midtown and south.
Locality Quotes : pic 000612672
I think whenever we think of our hometowns, we tend to think of very specific people: with whom you rode on the school bus, who was your next door neighbor you were playing with, who your girlfriend was. It's always something very specific.
Locality Quotes : pic 001506941
I learned a long time ago that place matters to me, on many levels, and maybe more than it should, but it is generally counter-productive for me to resist it.
Locality Quotes : pic 000067275
Whether it's from the biggest, most powerful city, or from the dinkiest little podunk town, there is a certain attachment and connection, and yes, pride about where you came from.
Locality Quotes : pic 000036075
Many small towns I know in Maine are as tight-knit and interdependent as those I associate with rural communities in India or China; with deep roots and old loyalties, skeptical of authority, they are proud and inflexibly territorial.
Locality Quotes : pic 000700674
There is no mysterious essence we can call a 'place'. Place is change. It is motion killed by the mind, and preserved in the amber of memory.
Locality Quotes : pic 000687907
The country is the world of the soul, the city is the world of bodies.
Locality Quotes : pic 000036395
When I moved to Brighton from London in 1995, I was struck by what I thought of as its townliness. A town, it seemed to me, was that perfect place to live, neither city nor country, both of which like to think they are light years apart but actually have a great deal in common.
Locality Quotes : pic 000637716
I know what it's like to be from an incredibly small town and the oppressiveness of it and the desire to get out. But I didn't realize that readers in Seattle, New York, and San Francisco might not get that so instinctively.

town. In the back of his
Locality Quotes : pic 001161962
State and home country, there's a difference
Locality Quotes : pic 001668817
Cities are about juxtaposition.
Locality Quotes : pic 000603928
Sometimes you film in your hometown, sometimes you go halfway across the world.
Locality Quotes : pic 000827439
The formidable power of geography determines the character and performance of a people.
Locality Quotes : pic 000774450
The psychological basis of the metropolitan type of individuality consists in the intensification of nervous stimulation which results from the swift and uninterrupted change of outer and inner stimuli.
Locality Quotes : pic 001751643
Loneliness, I think, has very little to do with location. It's a state of mind. In the center of every big, bustling city are some of the loneliest people in the world.
Locality Quotes : pic 000128797
Geography and mileage mean nothing. Separate is a single word that covers all distances that aren't together.
Locality Quotes : pic 001201085
When I interview candidates, I like to go where they live, so I can see them in their environment, not just in mind.
Locality Quotes : pic 000188280
I shall speak, not of self, but of geography.
Locality Quotes : pic 001525459
The place of connection or separation in relationship to your own being, the place in your self where this occurs, is in your heart.
Locality Quotes : pic 000716660
When time and space and change converge, we find place. We arrive in Place when we resolve things. Place is peace of mind and understanding. Place is knowledge of self. Place is resolution.
Locality Quotes : pic 000435780
What we bloodlessy call 'place' is to young children a wild compound of dream, spell and substance: place is somewhere they are always 'in', never 'on'.
Locality Quotes : pic 001522878
It is more a mentality than the actual places people live, as Jefferson and Hamilton would argue about - city versus country. For example, someone could have an empty place mentality yet be living in a condo in Boca Raton.
Locality Quotes : pic 001657622
Every town, like every man, has its own countenance; they have a common likeness and yet are different; one keeps in his mind all their peculiar touches.
Locality Quotes : pic 000616967
Just as none of us is outside or beyond geography, none of us is completely free from the struggle over geography. That struggle is complex and interesting because it is not only about soldiers and cannons but also about ideas, about forms, about images and imaginings.
Locality Quotes : pic 000998074
places, and incidents
Locality Quotes : pic 000158471
As someone who has moved around a fair amount, I wondered what it would be like to stay rooted to one place, one community.
Locality Quotes : pic 001834194
To write about a place, you have to live there.
Locality Quotes : pic 001670836
Downtown New York, I'm within certain styles of music and I'm also within certain cultural, you know, and literary context.
Locality Quotes : pic 001294982
I could go on and on and on about how we use the word 'place' in so many different ways. About how somebody might ask you 'Where you at?' And they're not asking where are you sitting, where are you living, they're asking: 'How are you doing?
Locality Quotes : pic 001631050
Geography bends to the dictate of will.
Locality Quotes : pic 001288198
Location is the key to most businesses, and the entrepreneurs typically build their reputation at a particular spot.
Locality Quotes : pic 001642269
If you are writing something, you automatically create a certain distance. It can be very little. Even within the same city you imaginatively have a certain distance from your subject, and at the same time, you have to have a connection.
Locality Quotes : pic 000526121
I never really thought of my neighborhood in South Philly as being a neighborhood; it was more a state of mind. For people who aren't familiar with those kinds of places, it's a whole different thing. Like, 42nd Street in New York City is a state of mind.
Locality Quotes : pic 000076299
A neighborhood is where, when you go out of it, you get beat up.
Locality Quotes : pic 000087542
I believe a politics of place emerges where we are deeply accountable to our communities, to our neighborhoods, to our home.
Locality Quotes : pic 001439772
A city whose living immediacy is so urgent that when I am in it I lose all sense of the past.
Locality Quotes : pic 001818134
It matters, like this: I belong to Malvern, you don't.
Locality Quotes : pic 001589649
When a number of crimes - for instance, burglaries - can be linked to the same offender, police often plot the locations on a map. The art of finding the location of the criminal's home based on the crime sites is a key objective in what is known as geographical profiling.
Locality Quotes : pic 000874773
Without geography you're nowhere.
Locality Quotes : pic 001141775
There's something that happens to you when you come back to your hometown.
Locality Quotes : pic 000806609
It's just really hard to remember your hometown isn't the only place in the world
Locality Quotes : pic 000007385
Belonging to a place isn't nearly as necessary as belonging to people you love and who love you and need you.
Locality Quotes : pic 001459353
Well, I'II tell ya, it makes no difference if you came from the city. And it don't matter if you came from the country. And some of you out there within the sound of my voice may have come from the suburbs.
Locality Quotes : pic 000751867
Places do not change so much as what we seek in them
Locality Quotes : pic 000234714
Growing up in a small town gives you two things: a sense of place and a feeling of self-consciousness - self-consciousness about one's education and exposure, both of which tend to be limited. On the other hand, limited possibilities also mean creating your own options.
Locality Quotes : pic 000798565
For whatever you're doing, for your creative juices, your geography's got a hell of a lot to do with it. You really have to be in a good place, and then you have to be either on your way there or on your way from there.
Locality Quotes : pic 000701026
In our changing world nothing changes more than geography.
Locality Quotes : pic 001677964
If you are in the country, you should notice landmarks - that is, objects which help you to find your way or prevent you getting lost, such as distant hills, church towers, and nearer objects, such as peculiar buildings, trees, gates, rocks, etc.
Locality Quotes : pic 001321005
In the evolution of a town, neighborhood, or community, there comes a point when the decisions of the past, the conditions of the present, and the prospects for the future collide.
Locality Quotes : pic 000869833
The place where you live - your home - is one of the most important things in a body's life.
Locality Quotes : pic 001089204
People in small towns, much more than in cities, share a destiny.
Locality Quotes : pic 001761134
I grew up in a suburb of Ohio, in a small town, and I resonated with that small-town feeling where everybody knows your business.
Locality Quotes : pic 001181241
Choosing location is integral to the film: in essence, another character.
Locality Quotes : pic 001464540
We seem divided between an urge to override our senses and numb ourselves to our settings and a contradictory impulse to acknowledge the extent to which our identities are indelibly connected to, and will shift along with, our locations.
Locality Quotes : pic 000560247
What is home but a place where you are truly known?
Locality Quotes : pic 001354215
Home: a place you're from, not a place you live.
Locality Quotes : pic 000979700
Is where you live. This is where you sleep. This is where you feel the most privacy in your whole entire life. This is more than just a room.
Locality Quotes : pic 001803390
There exists for each of us a geographical fulcrum, a place so saturated with memory that within its precinct the past is always present.
Locality Quotes : pic 001530863
All politics is local.
Locality Quotes : pic 000857455
City and country
each has its own beauty and its own pain. Some of the smallness of small towns
cattiness, everybody knowing everybody's business
that can be challenging. And cities can be challenging, because no one can connect except electronically.
Locality Quotes : pic 000816945
Place is so important to me. The Midwest is like a ghost in my life. It's present as I look out the window now. I see Texas, but if I close my eyes and look out the same window, I'm back in my hometown in Worthington, Minnesota, and I cherish those values and that diction.
Locality Quotes : pic 000687386
A city is a kind of pattern-amplifying machine: its neighborhoods are a way of measuring and expressing the repeated behavior of larger collectivities - capturing information about group behavior, and sharing that information with the group.
Locality Quotes : pic 000592560
The problem with being young and in a singular place is that one assumes that one will inevitably find oneself in an equally foreign and exotic location at some later point in life. But this is rarely true.
Locality Quotes : pic 000963844
No difference between here and there: the city that you live in is the world.
Locality Quotes : pic 000616919
Our brains are hardwired to think in terms of place and to associate psychic value or meaning to the places we inhabit.
Locality Quotes : pic 000095797
I've learned through the years that it's not where you live, it's the people who surround you that make you feel at home.
Locality Quotes : pic 000481833
Place in writing often exists at that intersection between the reality of place and one's imagination about that place -- what one believes, hopes, or imagines about the various possibilities of oneself in that place.
Locality Quotes : pic 001227761
No matter what town you are in, there is some social order and a different yardstick to chart. In New York, people create things like schools and speaking languages and second homes.
Locality Quotes : pic 001086035
The city is recruited from the country.
Locality Quotes : pic 001502588
The city has a face, the country a soul.
Locality Quotes : pic 000114352
If I manage to write something that I consider good and valuable in a particular place, that spot automatically has a special aura for me. In Albania, there are two cities where I have written the majority of my work: Gjirokaster, my home city, and Tirana.
Locality Quotes : pic 001013915
Cities can be lonely places, and in admitting this we see that loneliness doesn't necessarily require physical solitude, but rather an absence or paucity of connection, closeness, kinship: an inability, for one reason or another, to find as much intimacy as is desired.
Locality Quotes : pic 001075207
The best way to be GLOBAL is to be LOCAL
Locality Quotes : pic 000941818
In a way, whoever you know in a certain place defines that place for you.
Locality Quotes : pic 000748235
London, ... like a bowl of viscid human fluid, boils sullenly over the rim of its encircling hills and slops messily into the home counties.
Locality Quotes : pic 001679715
Home is in here [tapping temple]. Where you live is just a geographical preference.
Locality Quotes : pic 001024490
As long as you continue to travel, the nowhere that lies between the here of home and the there of somewhere else will continue to be one of the places where you live.
Locality Quotes : pic 000864112
Towns change; they grow or diminish, but hometowns remain as we left them.
Locality Quotes : pic 001201798
Talking about your home town is like talking about your own mother.
Locality Quotes : pic 000574773
I have a very powerful sense of place, but I have a very powerful sense of being a migrant, so it's both. It seems like I'm always leaving my home. That's part of the formula. I love the Dominican Republic. I go back all the time. I love New Jersey. Go back all the time.
Locality Quotes : pic 001523860
Where I'm from? A little town called none of yo god damn business.
Locality Quotes : pic 000476826
Between nowhere in particular and somewhere less than distinct.
Locality Quotes : pic 000915315
Everything has to do with geography.
Locality Quotes : pic 001170640
But there is a place where people like me live and love while fretting constantly about their own mortality and the fate of the universe. I know who I am now: I am a New Yorker.
Locality Quotes : pic 000690500
I find the elitism and blatant provincialism of many (Manhattan-based) New Yorkers unattractive. Just as place can be an identity crutch that helps a person feel individual, place can be a crutch in poetry.
Locality Quotes : pic 000292648
Geography is the art of the mappable.
Locality Quotes : pic 001699852
The countryside they
Locality Quotes : pic 000835386
How do you choose a place to settle, Enait? can you tell one from another?
You recognise it because you don't feel like leaving. Not because it's perfect, obviously. There aren't any perfect places. But there are places where at least no one tries to hurt you.
Locality Quotes : pic 001177287
A place is more than the sum of its physical parts; it's a repository for memories, a record and retainer of all that has happened within its boundaries.
Locality Quotes : pic 000911361
The way our business is, the way it works out, we end up being residents of everywhere.
Locality Quotes : pic 001117210
I grew up in a suburban situation and I was constantly looking for the central, the town. I grew up craving. "Where's the town? Where's the people?" You get into a very isolated shell.
Locality Quotes : pic 000299277
Another Country,
Locality Quotes : pic 000460391
I couldn't will my beloved Berlin streets across the world or make the people I loved appear when I needed them, but by summoning the flavors of Berlin and the foods of my loved ones, my kitchen became my sanctuary, the stove my anchor.
Distance means nothing when your kitchen smells like home.
Locality Quotes : pic 000786741
There is a comfortable feeling in small towns. It is salubrious.
Locality Quotes : pic 001394547
I come from this really small town near Nashville, Tennessee, where everything was la-di-da and normal.
Locality Quotes : pic 000103895
I was born and I live in a small village, where the centre of life is the square, and the small bar/cafe.
Locality Quotes : pic 001640683
His native home deep imag'd in his soul.
Locality Quotes : pic 001425406
From Washington, proverbially "the city of distances," through all its cities, states, and territories, it is a country of beginnings, of projects, of designs, and expectations.
