Quote of the Day
The only way to amuse some people is to slip and fall on an icy pavement.
E. W. Howe
Standing on soil feels so much different than standing on city pavement; it lets you look inward and reflect and see who you really are, while you see a beautiful, unspoiled land as far as the eye can see. It allows your inner life to grow.
President Obama has expressed his commitment to responsible stewardship of our land, water, and other natural resources. And one way of restoring the land to its natural condition is what we are doing here today - breaking pavement for the People's Garden.
It's just like music when you reckon it up. It's like listening to Pavement it's just The Fall in 1985, isn't it? They haven't got an original idea in their heads.
Mark E. Smith
In London, people can be so... well, it's not even a case of people being unkind or unfriendly. You just don't make any contact in London. You go from A to B with your eyes on the pavement.
I think you're lucky if you discover what you really love at a young age. College wasn't something I was going to do. I wanted to keep acting, and I didn't want to go to New York or California and pound the pavement.
I don't really listen to the radio anymore, but some of the more contemporary people I like are Stereolab, Spiritualize, Yo La Tengo and Bedhead. There are other things too, like Pavement. They're a great band, with really good lyrics. But generally, I'm not overwhelmed by the state of indie-rock.
I'd love to retire somewhere like Winchester, where you have one foot on the pavement but a sense of being in the country as well.
It's the texture of New York that people miss by filming elsewhere. There are layers and layers of character - even in the pavement - that you can't get anywhere else. And the speed that the people move. It's so different from other places.
I trip over my legs all the time. I'll wave to somebody, look up, and end up eating pavement.
I guess I thought I was Elvis Presley but I'll tell ya something. All Elvis did was stand on a stage and play a guitar. He never fell off on that pavement at no 80 mph.
When I hit that pavement at 70 or 80 mph those suits just ripped.
Hip-hop is about the brilliance of pavement poetry.
Michael Eric Dyson
My varying pairs of legs can be quite practical or quite impractical, and I don't judge them either way. Some are for getting around a 12-hour day, pounding the pavement, and some are to feel like I can transform my own body into a workable, changing piece of art.
All I've done is work... I arrived in Los Angeles in my early 20s and I've been pounding the pavement ever since.
I was real into Devo, Pavement, Captain Beefheart, and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
Unlike running on a road or concrete, natural surfaces are more forgiving and offer a more varied terrain, ultimately resulting in less repetitive micro-trauma to bones and joints than running on hard pavement does.
I love 'Wowee Zowee.' That was the first Pavement record I bought.
I never had to pound the pavement and really struggle after college.
Part of the challenge of Most Wanted is trying to become the most notorious street racer on the pavement.
Commuting in a wheelchair is not easy. I live in a very old part of Rome. These cobbles everywhere... terrible! In London, it is the same. Every pavement is uneven.
When I grew up in central London, we had six pavement slabs for a garden.
It's like I was always not quite sure even how to move in space somehow; I would watch people and then copy them. I found it really hard to walk straight. My brother was always on at me for walking off the pavement. I guess I always expected people to bring me back into line.
If you want to know what color something really is, make a circle with your thumb and finger and look through that. That strips away everything else so you see the color of the water or the pavement or a tree. I tell kids that if they are bored while waiting for their parents to pick them up, make a circle and compare the bark of the nearest trees.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
