Geography does not define you - love does. — Eve Ensler

Geography is destiny, and history is its interpreter

Geography is destiny, and history is its interpreter. — Tim Marshall

If you know a country's geography, you can understand and predict its foreign policy. — Napoleon Bonaparte

Spain is struggling, and has always struggled because of its geography. Its narrow coastal plains have poor soil, and access to markets is hindered internally by its short rivers and a highland plateau surrounded by mountain ranges. It was left behind after the Second World War, as under the Franco dictatorship it was politically frozen out of much of modern Europe. The newly democratic Spain joined the EU in 1986. By the 1990s, it had begun to catch up with the rest of Western Europe, but its inherent geographic and financial weaknesses continue to hold it back and have intensified the problems of overspending and loose central fiscal control, making it among the countries hit worst by the ’08 economic crisis. — Tim Marshall

Man Can Change Geography

Geography does not change, but man does, and man can change geography. — Tim Marshall

There is a geography of the human spirit, common to all peoples. — Linda Hogan

Like most parents, I've been stumped by homework, the big questions, such as: 'What is the point of geography - the pilot always knows where we are going?'.

What makes a nation in the beginning is a good piece of geography. — Robert Frost

John Hall, my geography teacher at school inspired me to a lifelong interest in geography and a curiosity about our world which has stayed with me through my life. Geography is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant. For me geography is a great adventure with a purpose. — Michael Palin

The contrast between northern and southern Europe is also at least partially attributable to the fact that the south has fewer coastal plains suitable for agriculture, and has suffered more from drought and natural disasters than the north. The arable land and waterways of the North European Plain which stretches from France to Russia enables crops and other goods to be produced and moved easily. — Tim Marshall

Borders are important, but they don't stop geography. — Tim Marshall

Geography is the subject which holds the key to our future — Michael Palin

The South China Sea is a crucial link in the ‘global commons’, connecting the Pacific to the Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf and Europe. Right now, along with the East China Sea, it is the most contested piece of sea in the world and one of the main reasons for the current anxiety over China's intentions. ― Bill Hayton, The South China Sea: The Struggle for Power in Asia

“It will be a Sea with agreed boundaries based upon universal principles and governed by shared responsibilities to use its resources most wisely, a Sea where fish stocks are managed collectively for the benefit of all, where the impacts of oil exploration and international shipping are alleviated and where search and rescue operations can take place unimpeded. It could happen – if a line is redrawn.” ― Bill Hayton, The South China Sea: The Struggle for Power in Asia

Physical geography and geology are inseparable scientific twins. — Roderick Murchison

Argentina lacks the size and population to become the primary regional power in Latin America, which looks to be Brazil’s destiny, but it has the quality of land to create a standard of living comparable to that of the European countries. If Argentina gets its economics right, its geography will enable it to become the power it has never been. — Tim Marshall

The reason for our success is no secret. It comes down to one single principle that transcends time and geography, religion and culture. It’s the Golden Rule – the simple idea that if you treat people well, the way you would like to be treated, they will do the same. — Isadore Sharp

Collateral learning in the way of formation of enduring attitudes, of likes and dislikes, may be and often is much more important than the spelling lesson or lesson in geography or history that is learned. — John Dewey

At present cats have more purchasing power and influence than the poor of this planet. Accidents of geography and colonial history should no longer determine who gets the fish. — Derek Wall

A great city may be seen as the construction of words as well as stone — Great Quotation by Yi-Fu Tuan

1. Geography is the study of earth as the home of people.

2. Place is security, space is freedom.

3. A great city may be seen as the construction of words as well as stone.

4. All creative effort – including the making of an omelet – is preceded by destruction.

5. It is by thoughtful reflection that the elusive moments of the past draw near to us in present reality and gain a measure of permanence.

6. Lucidity, I maintain, is almost always desirable.

7. In a sense, every human construction, whether mental or material, is a component in a landscape of fear because it exists in constant chaos. Thus children’s fairy tales as well as adult’s legends, cosmological myths, and indeed philosophical systems are shelters built by the mind in which human beings can rest, at least temporarily, from the siege of inchoate experience and of doubt.

8. People tend to suppress that which they cannot express.

9. Animals are like humans, only more openly carnal and sexual, more openly and therefore more disarmingly absurd.

10.Place is security, space is freedom.

Geography has made us neighbors

Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies. Those whom God has so joined together, let no man put asunder. — John F. Kennedy

“The good historian… must be fearless, uncorrupted, free, the friend of truth and of liberty. One who calls a fig a fig, and a skiff a skiff, neither giving nor withholding from any, from favour or from enmity, not influenced by pity, by shame, or by remorse. A just judge… a stranger to all, of no country, bound only by his own laws, acknowledging no sovereign, never considering what this or that man may say of him, but relating faithfully everything as it happened.” Lucian, ancient Greek writer and satirist (c.125-185)

“Perhaps nobody has changed the course of history as much as the historians.” Franklin P. Jones, American journalist (1908-1980)

War is God's way of teaching Americans geography. — Ambrose Bierce

Without an understanding of geography, we would not appreciate the mercies of the United States of America. — Tim Marshall

I believe there is little to gain by exchanging opinions with other artists concerning either the ideology of art or technical methods. Very much alone in my work, I am almost jealous of it. Geography has no bearing on it, nor have the interests of the community in which I work. — Yves Tanguy

The DRC is neither democratic, nor a republic. It is the second-largest country in Africa, bigger than Germany, France, and Spain combined and contains the Congo Rainforest, second only to the Amazon as the largest in the world. — Tim Marshall

Historians are like deaf people who go on answering questions that no one has asked them.

“Historians are like deaf people who go on answering questions that no one has asked them.” Leo Tolstoy, Russian writer and philosopher (1828-1910)

“What experience and history teach is that nations and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted upon any lessons they might have drawn from it.” Georg Hegel, German philosopher (1770-1831)

“A historian ought to be exact, sincere and impartial, free from passion, unbiased by interest, fear, resentment or affection. And faithful to the truth, which is the mother of history, the preserver of great actions, the enemy of oblivion, the witness of the past, the director of the future.” B. R. Ambedkar, Indian politician (1891-1956)

“History is an argument without end.” Pieter Geyl, Dutch historian (1887-1966)

“History is an aggregate of half-truths, semi-truths, fables, myths, rumours, prejudices, personal narratives, gossip and official prevarications. It is a canvas upon which thousands of artists throughout the ages have splashed their conceptions and interpretations of a day and an era.” Philip D. Jordan, American historian (1903-1980)

“History will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.” Winston Churchill, British writer and politician (1874-1965)

“History is a set of lies, agreed upon.” Napoleon Bonaparte, French ruler (1769-1821)

“History is instructive. What it suggests to people is that even if they do little things, if they walk on the picket line, if they join a vigil, if they write a letter to their local newspaper… Anything they do, however small, becomes part of a much larger sort of flow of energy. And when enough people do enough things, however small they are, then change takes place.” Howard Zinn, American historian (1922-2010)
