Three or four times only in my youth did I glimpse the Joyous Isles, before they were lost to fogs, depressions, cold fronts, ill winds, and contrary tides. I mistook them for adulthood. Assuming they were a fixed feature in my life’s voyage, I neglected to record their latitude, their longitude, their approach. Young ruddy fool. What wouldn’t I give now for a never changing map of the ever constant ineffable? To possess, as it were, an atlas of clouds. David Mitchell

GIS, in its digital manifestation of geography, goes beyond just the science. It provides us a framework and a process for applying geography.

I think I’ve developed a sort of ADD for geography now. When I’ve been in a country for too long, I’m like, I think it’s time to leave. I don’t know what that’s going to do to me in later life. Elizabeth Debicki

Geography is just physics slowed down, with a couple of trees stuck in it. Terry Pratchett

Basically, Islamic State is a combined al Qaeda and Lebanese Hezbollah on steroids, destabilizing the region, dissolving borders changing the political geography in the Mid east, and hardening political positions that make Mid east peace building more remote by the day. Jim Mattis

To be sure, many of the Sykes Picot borders reflected deals cut in Europe rather than local demographic or historical realities. But that hardly makes the Middle East unique Most borders around the world owe their legacy less to thoughtful design or popular choice than to some mixture of violence, ambition, geography, and chance. Richard N. Haass

It is wonderful to be here in the great state of Chicago. Dan Quayle

GIS is the only technology that actually integrates many different subjects using geography as its common framework. Jack Dangermond

Geography is the key, the crucial accident of birth. A piece of protein could be a snail, a sea lion, or a systems analyst, but it had to start somewhere. This is not science; it is merely metaphor. And the landscape in which the protein starts shapes its end as surely as bowls shape water. Annie Dillard

History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be. John Henrik Clarke

Eratosthenes, the mapmaker who was the first man to accurately measure the size of the Earth, was a librarian. Ken Jennings

A narrow minded man can lead one to devalue others, and in the end, to desperately dangerous hates of outsiders, ranging in expression from discrimination against minorities to world conflagrations, Tolman wrote. The solution? Create broader cognitive maps in the mind that encompass bigger geographical boundaries and a wider social scope, embracing those we might consider others, and in this way encourage empathy and understanding. Jennifer Ackerman

Sometimes I think war is God’s way of teaching us geography. Paul Rodriguez

I gradually became aware that my interiority was inseparable from my exteriority, that the geography of my city was the geography of my soul. Aleksandar Hemon

A high upland common was this moor, two miles from end to end, and full of furze and bracken. There were no trees and not a house, nothing but a line of telegraph poles following the road, sweeping with rigidity from north to south; nailed upon one of them a small scarlet notice to stonethrowers was prominent as a wound. On so high and wide a region as Shag Moor the wind always blew, or if it did not quite blow there was a cool activity in the air. The furze was always green and growing, and, taking no account of seasons, often golden. Here in summer solitude lounged and snoozed; at other times, as now, it shivered and looked sinister. A.E. Coppard

Geography was the lesson I always looked forward to most. It was a form of escapism. It could be bleak midwinter outside but inside you’re learning about African farming methods or the Great Lakes. No other lesson had that excitement. Ben Fogle

The sun does not rise or set. The earth rotates. Mokokoma Mokhonoana

I’m thankful for the work that feminists like Gloria Steinem have done. I am a feminist, but the geography for women today is vastly different than it was in the 60s. Amber Heard

No place works any different than any other place, really, beyond mere details. The universal human laws need, love for the beloved, fear, hunger, periodic exaltation, the kindness that rises up naturally in the absence of hunger fear pain are constant, predictable, reliable, universal, and are merely ornamented with the details of local culture. What a powerful thing to know that one’s own desires are mappable onto strangers; that what one finds in oneself will most certainly be found in The Other perhaps muted, exaggerated, or distorted, yes, but there nonetheless, and thus a source of comfort. George Saunders

Geography has no bearing on it, nor have the interests of the community in which I work. Yves Tanguy

For many people, being in a location with a sentimental attachment is worth more than being in a place where salaries are at 15% higher. Zachariah Renfro

Seattle very much benefited from this geography where it was a town nobody had really heard of in terms of a music scene. So we had that factor of being a new discovery. Chris Cornell

I know from personal experience that living different distances from your support network dramatically affects your connection with them. Distance can seem rather abstract when not tied to concrete examples. Living three hours away does not mean anything until the first time you drive from school to home. Zachariah Renfro

Art is transformative. It’s not 2+2=4. It works like the sea. It changes geography through its constant and relentless movement, just the way plants and water shape the world. Sean Scully

Cultural values are, in themselves, neutral as well as universal, and so much depends on how individuals or ethnic groups use them. Values are influenced by so many factors such as geography, climate, religion, the economy and technology. F. Sionil Jose

You crave for my voice, my touch, my mouth. Desires of your geography that I so well understand. Neither bread nor water will quench that which is rising deep inside you. You await for my presence! Avijeet Das

Desires of your geography that I so well understand. Avijeet Das

Baseball’s postseason shifts from game to game because of starting pitchers and the geography of the ballparks. George Vecsey

When I say Bolivia, you just think California. William Goldman

Oh, I just tend to believe in things when I’m writing them. For instance, when I was writing Doctor Dee, I believed in magic. And when I wrote Hawksmoor I believed in psychic geography. But as soon as I type the last full stop, I’m back to being a complete blank again. Peter Ackroyd

He fled, not from his past, but to escape his future. It took him twelve years to learn you cannot escape either of them. He had been a Kansas wheat hand, he had herded sheep in New Mexico, he was again with a construction gang in Arizona and west Texas and then a longshoreman on the Galveston docks; if he were still fleeing, he did not know it because it had been years now since he had even remembered that he had forgotten the face. And when he proved that at least you cannot escape either past or future with nothing better than geography, he did not know that. Geography that paucity of invention, that fatuous faith in distance of man, who can invent no better means than geography for escaping; himself of all, to whom, so he believed he believed, geography had never been merely something to walk upon but was the very medium which the fetterless to and fro going required to breathe in. William Faulkner

It’s very important to have the comfort of the regulator in every geography where you operate. Chanda Kochhar

It is my belief that we Americans, geographically isolated as we are, tend to be perhaps not as knowledgeable about other cultures as we might be. This is regrettable. Since we are the sole remaining superpower, it is desirable that we know something about the rest of the world, because otherwise, when we take over different parts of the world, how will we know how good we did? George Saunders

You have got the right strategy, the right geography; you have got the right customers. You need to prioritise them better; we need to grow them better, mind them better. We need to give more value to them, and we need to execute a lot of areas in the organisation where we are not executing. Azim Premji

Ghosts scale brute topography until the end of a day. Call them cartographers. Sneha Subramanian Kanta

I eat tons, three full meals a day, and I never go to the gym. When I was a child, my geography teacher said, You may be slim now but if you carry on eating like that, you’ll end up being really fat. Fortunately, I really don’t think I’ve changed much in the past two decades, so that teacher was an idiot. Gina Bellman

But deserts, even the driest and least inviting to animals and plants, contain subtle multitudes. And rather like silences outside of vacuums and as John Cage demonstrated with his famous 4’33” piece, they are often noisy with life. Travis Elborough

Everything has to do with geography. Judy Martz

Still, while the Old Testament God of Genesis might well have used the sixth day of the week to create all the creatures that lived on dry land, in the contemporary epoch Fridays, surely, are more readily associated with winding down than embarking on bold new exercises in urban development. Travis Elborough

There is an eternal landscape, a geography of the soul; we search for its outlines all our lives. Josephine Hart

Describe your street. Describe another street. Compare. Make an inventory of your pockets, of your bag.  Ask yourself about the provenance, the use, what will become of each of the objects you take out. Question your tea spoons. What is there under your wallpaper? How many movements does it take to dial a phone number? Why? Why don’t you find cigarettes in grocery stores? Why not? Georges Perec

I want to make sure that that future that we’re creating is one that is the best it can be for people around the world, and also one that includes the full range of our talent and our skills and, you know, gender and ethnicity, geography to solving the world’s problems. Mae Jemison

The men of the 47th North Carolina could not actually have looked across Washington to see the burning Long Bridge from the position in which I have them doing so. Geography occa sionally has to bend just a little to serve the novelist’s needs. Harry Turtledove

Travel stories teach geography; insect stories lead the child into natural science; and so on. The teacher, in short, can use reading to introduce her pupils to the most varied subjects; and the moment they have been thus started, they can go on to any limit guided by the single passion for reading. Maria Montessori

As ever, though, facts take second place when it comes to building narratives of power and authority. Mark Galeotti

If there’s a choice between tap water and bottled water, the consumer can make that choice. In a very large geography in the world, that choice does not exist. Muhtar Kent

Right now, images from 3055 show that Earth’s tectonic plates have shifted to the point in which all the continents are close to becoming just one continent! Pangaea is being recreated! If there is a time when the continents actually do come together, it might be harder to identify individual continents when they are all forged together in a single mass, so a person may attempt to redraw lines between the continents to help students continue to be able to identify them, which is beneficial to the community, because it supports the continuation of geographical education; people could distinguish continents, which is beneficial to analyzing each continent. However, suppose the person who made the lines believed that a certain religious group were terrorists. Suppose that person made the lines, because he she wants to divide the continent the religious group is located in and the continent he she lives in. That way, there could be a boundary between the continent where the religious group lives and the continent where the person lives. One may consider this to be religious intolerance, and hence believe it to be immoral, which exemplifies that a person’s intentions must also be considered in discussions about morality. Lucy Carter

Geography can be a major restriction for people to not be able to showcase their talent. Shankar Mahadevan

There is a power in maps that can never be taken lightly. Alex B. Hill

I like geography. I like to know where places are. Tom Felton

India and Pakistan can agree on one thing neither wants the other one around. Tim Marshall

The truth is that the history of Mexico is a history in the image of its geography abrupt and tortuous. Each historical period is like a plateau surrounded by tall mountains and separated from the other plateaus by precipices and divides. Octavio Paz

Some hills are each only a few centimeters short of being a mountain. Mokokoma Mokhonoana

The truth is that the history of Mexico is a history in the image of its geography abrupt and tortuous. Each historical period is like a plateau surrounded by tall mountains and separated from the other plateaus by precipices and divides. Octavio Paz
