  21. “Most teachers have little control over school policy or curriculum or choice of texts or special placement of students, but most have a great deal of autonomy inside the classroom. To a degree shared by only a few other occupations, such as police work, public education rests precariously on the skill and virtue of the people at the bottom of the institutional pyramid.” ~ Tracy Kidder
  22. “Genre categorization is a capitalist (rather than artistic) thing, a symptom of marketing and major-chain bookshelf placement.” ~ Lee Klein
  23. “Gertrude Stein, all courage and will, is a soldier of minimalism. Her work, unlike the resonating silences in the art of Samuel Beckett, embodies in its loquacity and verbosity the curious paradox of the minimalist form. This art of the nuance in repetition and placement she shares with the orchestral compositions of Philip Glass.” ~ Elizabeth Hardwick
  24. “The print is devised so that I can cut the dresses on the bias, so they work around the body. It’s not like a regular print that you buy and ends up being a vertical and a horizontal placement. It works around the body.” ~ John Galliano

  25. “Everybody you work with sees what you’re doing from a different point of view, a very specific point of view. So, if someone is lighting, they’re seeing it from that point of view.

  26. “I love her (Lucifer), with all my heart. She said that she would give me greatness, status, placement above the others. A match made in heaven, set the fires in hell. The devil on me. Game got my soul. Momma said beware of what the devil do. Tell’em that your soul’s not for sale. Every dream is designed and broadcasted from the masters to the masses.” ~ Lupe Fiasco
  27. “Relaxation, acceptance, and keeping open mind are key. First of all, peak performance isn’t possible if one is not relaxed, and if one is going to stay relaxed they must simply accept problems when they arise and decide to solve them. If I can’t do a move I merely accept that I haven’t discovered the right sequence, instead of trying the same sequence over and over or just quitting. I will try to do it 20 or 30 different ways, making subtle changes in body position and fot placement, until I find something that does work. That’s what I mean by keeping an open mind.” ~ Lynn Hill

  30. “What I had thought were signs of a broken educational system – the seemingly random placement of commas, the spastic syntax, the obnoxious overuse of quotation marks, the goofy misspelling of ‘Jouralism’ – were actually signs of the New Instantaneousness. ‘Instant Jouralists’ cannot be concerned with punctuation and grammar and spelling. That stuff just ‘slows you down.’ To be an ‘Instant Jouralist,’ you have to write as if you were being pursued by a cheetah across the Serengeti.” ~ Nicholas G. Carr
  31. “I think I learned more about writing scores for Broadway by making mix tapes in the ’90s than I did in college. You’re learning about rise and fall and energy and tempo shifts. You’re showing off your taste and your references. You’re trying to be witty by – through placement of music you didn’t write.” ~ Lin-Manuel Miranda
  32. “No one has ever lived who knows better than you the proper placement of footfalls on treacherous paths.” ~ Mary Todd Lincoln

  33. “I listen to hundreds of those hymns sung repeatedly over the years of my life. And I know that they probably influenced a rhyme scheme maybe to certain extent.

  34. “Wait for the placement. Wait for your placement. I will cause you to pull up that place in you that needs to have this piece fitted. If you will reach down deep and pull up that place that only I can fill, I will fill it. There’s a blessing that you have not released, and I am saying, ‘Pull that deep blessing up. It is down deep within you. When that blessing forms in your mouth and comes forth, blessings that you’ve been waiting for will pour upon you.'” ~ Chuck Pierce
  35. “I was associated with the Artist Placement Group in the early 1970s and David Hall, the video artist, was an Artist Placement Group artist. I was completely broke at that time, and he said to me, “Come and do some teaching” – he was head of department at Maidstone College of Art. And I went and did a couple of teaching days and practically the only person who showed up was David Cunningham [Flying Lizard’s main man], with all of this finished work” ~ David Toop

  38. “I come from a tradition of Western culture, in which the ideal (my ideal) was the complex, dense, and ‘cathedral-like’ structure of the highly educated and articulate personality–a man or woman who carried inside themselves a personally constructed and unique version of the entire heritage of the West. [But now] I see within us all (myself included) there placement of complex inner density with a new kind of self–evolving under the pressure of information overload and the technology of the ‘instantly available.'” ~ Richard Foreman
  39. “We are not entirely sure of the meaning of all of the symbolic stones and their placement. Neither Joseph Smith nor Brigham Young said too much about these.

Dunn
  40. “Not born to be rich, by 1981 I had nonetheless begun to use a PC that required for its operation the absorption of several hundred pages of protocols and the placement of very large floppy disks in the freezer to fix frequent crashes.” ~ Mark Helprin

  41. “Easy? You men have no idea what we’re dealing with down there. Teeth placement, and jaw stress, and suction, and gag reflex, and all the while bobbing up and down, moaning and trying to breathe through our noses. Easy?Honey, they don’t call it a job for nothin’!” ~ Kim Cattrall
  42. “I knew I had to have a hit. I would get no more chances. Analyzing what they had in common I discovered they had many similar elements: harmonic rhythm, placement of the chord changes, choice of harmonic progressions, similar instrumentation, vocal phrases, drum fills, content, even the timbre of the lead solo voice. I decided to write a song that incorporated all these elements in one record.” ~ Neil Sedaka
  43. “Salmon farming-the placement of large metal or mesh net cages in the ocean to grow fish-was pioneered in Norway in the 1960s. Since then, the industry has expanded to Scotland, Ireland, Canada, the US, and Chile, but is dominated by the same multinational corporations. Wherever it is practiced, net-cage salmon farming is controversial and raises serious environmental concerns.” ~ David Suzuki
  44. “Toy Story 3 is so besotted with brand names and product-placement that it stops being about the innocent pleasures of imagination — the usefulness of toys — and strictly celebrates consumerism.” ~ Armond White

  45. “In a bygone era, penalty-takers would put their laces through the ball and threaten to put a permanent bulge in the netting. For reasons that remain a mystery, the modern preference is for side-footed placement and so the dilemma of goalkeepers has changed from whether to take a guess at dive right or left to if they should dive at all. Or at least that ought to have been their reappraisal. Almunia was feted as the hero in Rome but had he and Doni stayed in the centre of their goal then the number of saves they made in the shoot-out would have been doubled.” ~ Pete Gill
  46. “All my life I have lied. I lied to escape, I lied to be loved, I lied for placement and power; I lied to lie. It was a way of living; lies are life’s almost-anagram.” ~ John Banville
  47. “While Google has given away pretty much everything it has to offer – from search and maps to email and apps – this has always been part of its greater revenue model: the pennies per placement it gets for seeding the entire Google universe of search and services with ever more targeted advertising.” ~ Douglas Rushkoff
  48. “In between the Queen and the First Lady, Nancy Reagan, sat Tony Richardson, looking very calm. Later on it emerged that this was because, having not been apprised of the placement until he was about to sit down, he had died of fright. To have expired was to be fortunate.” ~ Clive James

  49. “I’ve always felt that the placement of a man’s testicles is an eloquent argument against intelligent design.” ~ Mark Lawrence

  51. “Honestly, when you start talking about genres, you’re talking as much about the business side of writing as anything else. Certainly there are elements of reader expectation that play into various genres, and those are important, but it also becomes about packaging, placement, audience….In the end, I’m not a fan of labels. I think the best fiction blurs the boundaries between genres, stretches and breaks them.” ~ Kristin Hannah
  52. “So that individuation may be compared to a pyramid in that it is only achieved by the placement of the top stone… The Jews, Ford said. They ain’t like anyone else I know. There goes you theory up shits creek. He smiled.” ~ E. L. Doctorow

  53. “The recent inspection find in the private home of a scientist of a box of some 3,000 pages of documents, much of it relating to the laser enrichment of uranium support a concern that has long existed that documents might be distributed to the homes of private individuals. On our side, we cannot help but think that the case might not be isolated and that such placements of documents is deliberate to make discovery difficult and to seek to shield documents by placing them in private homes.” ~ Hans Blix
  54. “The art of stone in a Japanese garden is that of placement. Its ideal does not deviate from that of nature.” ~ Isamu Noguchi
  55. “Promenade was totally driven by the context. The internal relationships of measurement and placement related to the central axis of the site. The placement of the rectangular plates followed a strict logic in that the plates tilted away and towards the center line in an asymmetrical counterpoint. However, the perception of the sculpture contradicts the logic of its relation to the site. As you walk inbetween the plates you see fragments, you see the work in part, you cannot grasp the whole.” ~ Richard Serra
  56. “What stands between heaven and earth is merely the acceptance of ourselves as apart of this world and our placement of ourselves.” ~ Timothy Treadwell

  58. “I just started writing and writing for people. And then, like I guess after (a) year of getting some placements, I kinda got a shot to be an artist. Long story short I think, yeah.” ~ PJ Harvey
  59. “The question so often asked of modern painting, “What is it?”, contains more than the dull skepticism of the man who is not going to have the wool pulled over his eyes. It speaks of a fundamental placement in relation to the work, that of a voyager in the world coming upon a strange object. The reader reconstitutes the work by his active participation, by approaching the object, tapping it, shaking it, holding it to his ear to hear the roaring within. It is characteristic of the object that it does not declare itself all at once, in a rush of pleasant naïveté.” ~ Donald Barthelme
  60. “My goal is to create a book where the entire book-text, pictures, shape of book-work together to create the theme. The placement of images and text on the page is crucial for me.” ~ Chris Raschka

  61. “A classroom atmosphere that promotes reading does not come from the furniture and its placement as much as it comes from the teacher’s expectation that students will read.” ~ Donalyn Miller
  62. “There’s a very old recording maxim that goes, ‘Distance makes depth.’ I’ve used that a hell of a lot-whether it’s tracking guitars or the whole band. People are used to close-miking amps, but I’d have a mic out around the back, as well, and then balance the two. Also, you shouldn’t have to use EQ in the studio if the instruments sound right. You should be able to get the right tones simply with the science of microphone placement.” ~ Jimmy Page
  63. “Licensing is how indie rock people make a living these days, so whatever about that. But I want good films and good placement for the songs because I want to be exclusive. I don’t want to just sign it away because I don’t want songs to lose meaning, but I’m also…I don’t care [that] Wilco sold songs to Volkswagen. That’s great. They probably drive Volkswagens.” ~ Justin Vernon
