The culture is about moving to a place where tobacco and smoking isn't part of normal life: people don't encounter it normally, they don't see it in their big supermarkets, they don't see people smoking in public places, they don't see tobacco vending machines.
Writing for the page is only one form of writing for the eye. Wherever solemn inscriptions are put up in public places, there is a sense that the site and the occasion demand a form of writing which goes beyond plain informative prose. Each word is so valued that the letters forming it are seen as objects of solemn beauty.
Australia turns out to be a sensational place, albeit one of the most comfortably racist places I've ever been in. They've really settled into their intolerance like an old resentful slipper.
I've been visiting Thailand for more than 20 years but didn't fall in love with it until I visited Phuket Town in Phuket. The northern part of Phuket is one of the most fascinating places I've ever been, and largely unspoilt and unknown.
I just like being on my own on trains, traveling. I spent all my pocket money travelling the London Underground and Southern Railway, what used to be the Western region, and in Europe as much as I could afford it. My parents used to think I was going places, but I wasn't, I was just travelling the trains.
Gaza has 1.2 million Palestinians living in crowded places and the resistance will be strong.
Well, only Japanese may understand it, but I'm like a goat or something that likes high places.
For me, for the type of addict I am, when I start getting those swirly thoughts and stuff, and they talk about slippery places, slippery people and slippery things, you know, I need to - I needed to take my cell phone and eliminate all the phone numbers, change the phone numbers so no one I knew before could call me or reach me.
I have one of the most beautiful places in the world in Orange County. That's a great place to live.
Besides Germany, the only countries that don't have speed limits are places like Nepal, where road conditions are so bad that a limit would be beside the point. In other words, it's a little crazy that this is even a topic for debate in Germany.
This is the problem today. Men and women have switched places. The woman now acts more like the man.
I like words. Words are places, rooms, distant airs, thin and tropical. They make us feel and imagine we are more than our bodies.
Rickie Lee Jones
The film opens up the world beyond Katniss' point of view, allowing the audience access to the happenings of places like the Hunger Games control room and President Snow's rose garden, thereby adding a new dimension to the story.
Travelling is a great time to catch up on my reading. It's hard falling asleep in new places, but a good book always makes it easier.
I'm a bit of a nomad anyway, so I find it quite easy to settle in places very quickly.
Sophie Kennedy Clark
Banks were once places to hold money and were very careful in lending to finance families as they built a future - bought homes, bought cars, took out student loans.
Extroverts may get places faster, but for introverts it's all about working at the pace you need and, at the end of the day, performing at your best.
London is one of the most civilised places in the world for the procedure of making architecture and urban design.
There are few places you can find silence. Air travel could be the last fortress of solitude.
Knowledge of the past and of the places of the earth is the ornament and food of the mind of man.
Leonardo da Vinci
I spend a lot of time thinking about this business of letting go - letting go of the children God gives to us for such a brief time before they go off on their own; letting go of old homes, old friends, old places and old dreams.
Clean water and access to food are some of the simplest things that we can take for granted each and every day. In places like Africa, these can be some of the hardest resources to attain if you live in a rural area.
I am not quite sure where home is right now. I do have places in London and Milan, and a house in Spain. I guess I would say home is where my mother is, and she lives in Spain.
Hiking in undiscovered places is a lot of fun.
I like geography. I like to know where places are.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
