The rule for effective governance is simple. It is one Ronald Reagan knew by heart. And one that he successfully employed with Social Security and the Cold War. When there is a problem you fix it. That is the job you have been sent to do and you cannot wait for someone else to do it for you.
I'm well-travelled so I can see places coming up. I went to St. Croix in the West Indies at Christmas and it had been hit by a really bad tornado. Values there have gone down but I guarantee they will be up again in eight years. So I'll get in now while it's cheap as chips.
At Christmas 'It's a Wonderful Life' makes me cry in exactly the same places every time even though I know it's coming.
Individuality is founded in feeling and the recesses of feeling the darker blinder strata of character are the only places in the world in which we catch real fact in the making and directly perceive how events happen and how work is actually done.
When the British came to Ibo land for instance at the beginning of the 20th century and defeated the men in pitched battles in different places and set up their administrations the men surrendered. And it was the women who led the first revolt.
All places where women are excluded tend downward to barbarism but the moment she is introduced there come in with her courtesy cleanliness sobriety and order.
We did not go to war in Afghanistan or in Iraq to quote 'impose democracy.' We went to war in both places because we saw those regimes as a threat to the United States.
Let's say a Soviet exchange student back in the '70s would go back and tell the KGB about people and places and things that he'd seen and done and been involved with. This is not really espionage there's no betrayal of trust.
Those who wish well to the State ought to choose to places of trust men of inward principle justified by exemplary conversation.
Whoever places his trust into a system will soon be without a home. While you are building your third story the two lower ones have already been dismantled.
People in north Michigan are not different at all from people in southern Alabama. Trust me someone who's spent a lot of time in both places. They're all hardworking simple people.
For me Dracula has always been associated with travel and beautiful historical places.
My Christmas present to myself each year is to see how much air travel can open up the world and take me to places as far from sheltered California and Japan as possible.
I want to do more documentaries and travel to places I haven't been. That is where I think I can be fulfilled.
I travel abroad constantly on book promotion and research and the Internet is invaluable to me for accessing U.K. news in places such as America which most of the time hasn't heard of England.
I have been able to travel all over the country and see many places that I probably never would have visited. I have also participated in many charity events for worthy causes.
It's like this - because I travel so much I crave certain foods or certain things like from certain places that I've been.
I like to think that if it hadn't gone as well as it has if I wasn't able to make a living off of playing music I would still be playing the music. But of course I wouldn't likely have had the opportunity to travel and a lot of the places have inspired songs.
All the rappers my age are getting Audemars and Rolexes. I want to find my own thing. That's why I travel the world - for me that's my B-side why we go places. I have a Hublot on from time to time but I want a home base watch - something that's elegant but has got a little pizzazz to it.
I'm interested to go other places I've been the boy in the bubble since we've been shooting I need to go travel a little bit see where the action is other than going to see family of course.
It would be nice to travel if you knew where you were going and where you would live at the end or do we ever know do we ever live where we live we're always in other places lost like sheep.
The first year or so on The Daily Show is pretty intense in terms of travel. You're going to the worst places in the country talking to the craziest people in the world.
The fact that people will pay you to talk to people and travel to interesting places and write about what intrigues you I am just amazed by that.
Mark Twain was a great traveler and he wrote three or four great travel books. I wouldn't say that I'm a travel novelist but rather a novelist who travels - and who uses travel as a background for finding stories of places.
What I like in this job is you can travel to many places many imaginations.
