Letitia Elizabeth Landon

The actual Blue Rose murders, which lie at the core of the three novels, yield various incorrect solutions which assume the status of truth.
In Sub-Saharan Africa, where agriculture represents two-thirds of all employment, governments are proving that resource commitments yield success.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell
It's wonderful to be back. Back among the mountains that remind us of our vulnerability, our ultimate lack of control over the world we live in. Mountains that demand humility, and yield so much peace in return.
As N.Y.C. Public Advocate, I released a report that showed that stop-and-frisks of African Americans in 2012 were barely half as likely to yield a weapon as those of white New Yorkers - and a third less likely to yield contraband.

Bill de Blasio

I'm a professional geologist, an explorationist for oil. That's what I've done in my career, one that's culminated in - at least to this point - playing a part in finding the largest field in the last 40 years anywhere in the world. That's the Bakken field, which I believe will yield 24 billion barrels of oil in the decades to come, maybe more.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
