Gaston Bachelard
“For a knowledge of intimacy, localization in the spaces of our intimacy is more urgent than determination of dates.”
Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space

“There is something particularly fascinating about seeing places you know in a piece of art - be that in a film, or a photograph, or a painting.”
Sara Sheridan

Michael Bassey Johnson
“The only difference between you and the star is that you shine below, and the other shines above: Wherever you are located, You are a star!”

Howard Tayler
“Are you guys really arguing over where to eat dinner?"

"It's one of the more savage tools in the diplomatic arsenal.”
Howard Tayler, Emperor Pius Dei

Melanie Charlene
“The sun rises, the sun falls, the wind blows and the birds sing no matter where you are. These are experiences that unite us all... something we can all enjoy together”

Seneca
“The world you see, nature's greatest and most glorious creation, and the human mind which gazes and wonders at it, and is the most splendid part of it, these are our own everlasting possessions and will remain with us as long as we ourselves remain. So, eager and upright, let us hasten with bold steps wherever circumstances take us, and let us journey through any countries whatever: there can be no place of exile within the world since nothing within the world is alien to men.”
Seneca

Israelmore Ayivor
“Check your environment and be sure that it is supportive. Some environments do not support progress. Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not fertile lands for a farmer’s dream seeds. Change location.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Brandon Sanderson
“There was rarely an obvious branching point in a person's life. People changed slowly, over time. You didn't take one step, then find yourself in a completely new location. You first took a little step off the path to avoid some rocks. For a while, you walked alongside the path, but then you wandered out a little way to step on softer soil. Then you stopped paying attention as you drifted farther and farther away. Finally, you found yourself in the wrong city, wondering why the signs on the roadway hadn't led you better.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Emperor's Soul

Steven Magee
“The greatest journey of discovery that the human can take is not through the universe or to the remotest location on earth, it is the voyage through the human mind.”
Steven Magee

“We move much too fast, and too frequently, to pause to savor landscapes or avoid disfiguring clutter.”
Edwin M. Yoder Jr.

Marcus du Sautoy
“The wave quality of light is the same as that of the electron. The wave determines the probable location of the photon of light when it is detected. The wave character of light is not vibrating stuff like a wave of water but rather a wavelike function encoding information about where you'll find the photon of light once it is detected. Until it reaches the detector plate, like the electron, it is seemingly passing through both slits simultaneously, making its mind up about its location only once it is observed [...].
It's this act of observation that is such a strange feature of quantum physics. Until I ask the detector to pick up where the electron is, the particle should be thought of as probabilistically distributed over space, with a probability described by a mathematical function that has wavelike characteristics. The effect of the two slits on this mathematical wave function alters it in such a way that the electron is forbidden from being located at some points on the detector plate. But when the particle is observed, the die is cast, probabilities disappear, and the particle must decide on a location.”
Marcus du Sautoy, The Great Unknown: Seven Journeys to the Frontiers of Science

Theodore Roosevelt
“Again, it was proposed that we should go up the mountains and make our camps there.”
Theodore Roosevelt, The Rough Riders

“Cause, remember: no matter where you go... there you are.”

C.W. Snyder
“To be precise, I’d say you’re in the village of Hamlin. To be realistic, I’d say you’re exactly where you need to be.”
C.W. Snyder, Child of Nod

Marcus du Sautoy
“One of the most curious consequences of quantum physics is that a particle like an electron can seemingly be in more than one place at the same time until it is observed, at which point there seems to be a random choice made about where the particle is really located. Scientists currently believe that this randomness is genuine, not just caused by a lack of information. Repeat the experiment under the same conditions and you may get a different answer each time.”
Marcus du Sautoy, The Great Unknown: Seven Journeys to the Frontiers of Science

Israelmore Ayivor
“Just as every crop performs on its specific type of soil, and not all fishes can grow in every kind of water, so is leadership. You can’t lead where you can’t thrive; you can lead where you can survive!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders' Watchwords

Christina Engela
“Ex ‘Fleet man?”
“He was a full Commander, last I heard, sir.”
“Interesting.” Falconer commented. “Get me his specs. If I have to take him aboard my ship, I want to know all about him.”
She swallowed. “Yes sir.”
Falconer returned his attention to Nordyke.
“What’s their location?”
“They’re about a week outside the Hermes system, Captain.”
“Helm, set a course – best possible speed!”
“Um – sir, we’re on conversion drive at the moment.” The helmsman reported.
“I know, Linson – d’you think I’m senile?”
“No, sir – I…” The young helmsman stammered.
“I did say ‘best possible speed’, didn’t I?”
“Yes, sir.”
Christina Engela, Blachart

Eric    Weiner
“Places of genius challenge us. They are difficult. They do not earn their place in history with ethnic restaurants or street festivals, but by provoking us, making demands of us. Crazy, unrealistic, beautiful demands.”
Eric Weiner, The Geography of Genius: A Search for the World's Most Creative Places from Ancient Athens to Silicon Valley

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Heaven shows up all the time. But we plan our time so that we show up in other places.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

Carrie Brownstein
“Back then, I was still just a fan of music. And to be a fan of music also meant to be a fan of cities, of places. Regionalism—and the creative scenes therein—played an important role in the identification and contextualization of a sound or aesthetic. Music felt married to place, and the notion of “somewhere” predated the Internet’s seeming invention of “everywhere” (which often ends up feeling like “nowhere”)”
Carrie Brownstein, Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl

Deyth Banger
“F.B.I and C.I.A use coded words.... Don't be stupid, remove everything which shows the location. Good Luck Killer :)!”
Deyth Banger

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“I paved the path to the very place I don’t want to be. But passing the blame off to someone else doesn’t put me any place else.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“To fully carry out your purpose as believers, you have to discover where the people you want to minister to are”

“There's a peculiar porcelain bathtub in a field; almost as though it has been placed there for Salvador Dali to come and capture.”

John Doerr
“You talk to leadership in China, and THEY are all the engineers. They get what is going on immediately. The Americans don't because they're all lawyers.”
John Doerr

“And all of it generates a data trail. All of it is trackable somewhere at some level, and much of it is traceable to this location.”
Kate O'Neill, Pixels and Place: Connecting Human Experience Across Physical and Digital Spaces

Israelmore Ayivor
“Environment provides us with many cultures. From each we identify our beliefs that give us our values. From our values we pick up our choices and our choices bring out our character. Our characters make us to lead!”
Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders' Watchwords

Richard Florida
“Over time, this growing tendency of like marrying like will only reinforce clustering and geographic sorting along class lines, giving the emerging map of social, economic, and cultural segregation even greater permanence.”
Richard Florida
