Donna Brazile
The graceful Georgian streets and squares, a series of steel engravings under a wet sky.

Sally Field taught me to do needlepoint on ‘Steel Magnolias,’ and a standby painter on ‘Pelican Brief’ taught me to knit. I’m pretty good at it now!

I was in bands, like everyone else, when I was 16, 17; I was a little skater listening to Dead Kennedy’s and Steel Pole Bath Tub. It was through early 90s Hip Hop that I found my way to Soul and Funk, and then out the other side into beats.
Bonobo
America produces the world’s best steel, and southwestern Pennsylvania produces the world’s best steelworkers.

Ian Ziering

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
Here at home, we’re in a world of right angles and human construct, so whether it’s cement or plastic or steel, everything is at an angle. But nature is chaos theory in full play. So having that uniqueness of what nature is gives me a sense of rejuvenation and scale.
Conrad Anker
Manchester’s history is cotton and wool. Birmingham’s is iron and steel.
Steven Knight
It does seem really hard to get consumers to do the right thing. It is stupid that we use two tons of steel, glass, and plastic to haul our sorry selves to the shopping mall. It’s stupid that we put water in plastic bottles in Fiji and ship it here.
John Doerr
General Motors spends more on health care than steel.
Kathleen Sebelius

I’ve seen my fair share of drama over the years of Children In Need. I had a close brush with mortality in 2009 when a chain collapsed from the studio rigging.

The problem with traditional pie weights is you never have enough and they’re expensive. Common substitutes like dried beans just aren’t heavy enough to do the job. Our genius solution? Small steel balls that fit inside ball bearings and that can be purchased at any hardware store.
Claire Saffitz
But steel bars have never yet kept out a mob; it takes

But steel bars have never yet kept out a mob; it takes something a good deal stronger: human courage backed up by the consciousness of being right.
Ray Stannard Baker
Any act often repeated soon forms a habit; and habit allowed, steady gains in strength, At first it may be but as a spider’s web, easily broken through, but if not resisted it soon binds us with chains of steel.

I don’t like broad swords. They’re not much fun. A broad sword is just a big chunk of steel, and there’s not much finesse in it, not much skill, I don’t think anyway.

Nature is a brilliant engineer and builder. It knows how to create seashells that are twice as strong as the most resistant ceramics human beings can manufacture, and it produces silk fibers five times stronger than steel. Nature also knows how to create multipurpose forms.

Jeffrey Thomas
Trump built Trump Tower using mob concrete, not Bethlehem steel.
Joy Reid
The stoic drama ‘A Somewhat Gentle Man’ is photographed in a palate of steel gray tones that match Stellan Skarsgard’s complexion. It’s a low-blood-pressure version of the kind of thing James M. Cain used to do in his sleep, and its filmmaking accomplishment is as minimalist as its narrative ambition is minimal.
Elvis Mitchell
The finest steel has to go through the hottest fire.
Richard M. Nixon
It was at the Children’s Defense Fund that I met Hillary. I was 21, feisty, and ready to fight. And I remember thinking immediately, ‘Here is a woman who doesn’t mess around.’ Steel in her spine, Hillary didn’t want to talk about anything other than how to make children’s lives better.

John Doerr
I grew up on the Southside of Chicago. What people don’t realize is that my father was a multimillionaire who owned 12 hotels, motels, a steel mill, a radio station, a club, nursing home, and a law office. So I think it’s safe to say I’m a little above middle class and I’m a daddy’s girl.
LisaRaye McCoy-Misick
There was no such thing as production at Starday. We’d go in with the band, we’d go over the song, I’d look over and tell the steel player to take a break or kick it off, and I’d get the fiddle to play a turnaround in the middle.
George Jones
Coal is tied to steel jobs, trucking jobs, and manufacturing jobs.

Charles M. Schwab
I like hearing fiddles, steel guitar, acoustics up loud – really rock & roll stuff but with a country sound behind it. That’s just who I am. I’m not trying to prove a point; I am just doing what I like. But I don’t have any problems with any other artist coming in and doing their own thing.
Jon Pardi
I started working for Bethlehem Steel when I was about 16 during the summers.
Richard Serra

Natti Natasha
Pittsburgh is an underdog city because it’s been in a recession for a really long time, since the steel industry collapsed, so it has this underdog mentality. Yeah, there are a lot of people who are conservative, but I also think they want to rally around their Pittsburgh people.
Alaska
I actually got hurt in a steel factory in 1985 and so that changed my life. I went to a junior college and that’s where I discovered acting.

Anthony Hopkins
Industrial technologies that allowed for increased mechanization in 19th-century armed forces also spurred Frederick Winslow Taylor to develop his ‘Scientific Management’ doctrine in Philadelphia steel mills.

Gretchen Wilson
The worst thing would be for a Canada to develop a Hollywood. This is an industry we are going to have to fight to defend. We have to compete now so productions stay here. We don’t want entertainment to be like the steel industry.
Xavier Becerra
The two words, in the American lexicon, are never good. Pink slip. The first time I ever heard it when I was young was when Kaiser Steel handed out pink slips to many of my neighbors and relatives. Layoffs were about efficiency, sales figures for raw materials or refrigerators.

Jimmy Griffin
Spain’s parties must steel themselves to do the sensible thing and treat the Catalonia issue with the seriousness it deserves.
Carles Puigdemont
The good Lord made us all out of iron. Then he turns up

The good Lord made us all out of iron. Then he turns up the heat to forge some of us into steel.
Marie Osmond
I didn’t come from the elites. I didn’t come from the Northeast or from San Francisco. I came from a southern Ohio steel town, and it’s a town that’s really struggling in a lot of ways, ways that are indicative of the broader struggles of America’s working class.
J. D. Vance
It wasn’t stone. It wasn’t welded steel. It wasn’t traditional sculpture. They thought it was craft, or something else, but not art. They couldn’t define it in the early Fifties when I was starting out.
Ruth Asawa
I do a very poor man’s pedal steel on the Stratocaster.
Jeff Beck
Any act often repeated soon forms a habit; and habit allowed, steady gains in strength, At first it may be but as a spider’s web, easily broken through, but if not resisted it soon binds us with chains of steel.
Tryon Edwards
I kept a steel wall around my moral and sexual instincts – protecting them, I thought, from the threats of the real world. This gave me a tremendous advantage in politics, if not in my soul. The true me, my spiritual core, slipped further and further from reach.
James McGreevey
At the bottom of not a little of the bravery that appears in the world, there lurks a miserable cowardice. Men will face powder and steel because they have not the courage to face public opinion.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
You can’t work in a steel mill and think small. Giant converters hundreds of feet high. Every night, the sky looked enormous. It was a torrent of flames – of fire. The place that Pittsburgh used to be had such scale.

Chanda Kochhar

Alan Bates
L.A. has got to be the poser capital of the world. Around here Quiet Riot, Motley Crue, and Ratt are the heaviest in the world. So if that’s heavy we must be molten steel.
Jeff Hanneman
My left eye went when I was young. I was working the speed bag, and some steel went in the eye and scratched it to pieces. I was kinda blind in that eye.
Joe Frazier
There’s just not a lot of guys around playing like that these days; a lot of steel players are plugging into stomp boxes, trying to sound like Jeff Beck on a steel guitar.
John Fogerty
I like soundtracks. I love Hans Zimmer, the score for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is one of my favourites. I also like ‘Man of Steel,’ ‘Inception,’ ‘Interstellar,’ ‘Braveheart,’ ‘Transformers’ – Steve Jablonsky with ‘Arrival to Earth.’ ‘Schindler’s List’ too, that’s beautiful.
Santan Dave
The deepest and most sincere feeling I get is when I meet an artist and they have that steel in their eyes and they have that fire and that passion and all they want is to be a star and to hear themselves on the radio.
L.A. Reid
We are a generation of settlers, and without the steel helmet and gun barrel, we shall not be able to plant a tree or build a house.
Moshe Dayan
No man can knock me out. I’ve been hitting my head with steel chairs in the WWE. I’ve never been knocked out in my life. And nobody can knock me out.
Big Show
Sepahan of Isfahan and Steel Azin offered me to take charge of their teams. I didn’t want to come back to football at that time.
Ali Daei
I don’t like going out. I hate clubs. I hate being around too many people. I love my home and staying in bed and watching ‘Dancing With the Stars’ or reading a Danielle Steel novel.
Britney Spears
I give thanks for the fact that I can get this stick with a bit of steel nib on the end, dip it in some black carbon stuff, and draw on paper. Now, people did it the same way 2,000 years ago. And there’s something lovely about that play, and making mud pies and a mess. That’s a lovely privilege.
Michael Leunig
Hyperloop is a decades-long effort. You’re moving steel and reshaping physical things, so you need government to help you build.
Shervin Pishevar
My degree was in education, but the idea of being a teacher lost out to being a reporter. I worked at a newspaper for a while, then went to New York and worked in PR at RCA and NBC, and at ‘The United States Steel Hour,’ a drama series.
Joan Ganz Cooney
‘Swagger’ would be the word for ‘Dirt On My Boots.’ With the real funky drum loop and the ganjo rolling down, and then the fiddles and the guitar and steel, it really took an old school style where it’s fiddle, steel, guitar, and mixed it with a drum loop.
Jon Pardi
I cannot tell you how many times I have seen the original ‘Steel Magnolias’ with Dolly Parton and Sally Field and Julia Roberts.
Matthew Moy
Bofors was a steelmaker that became a forgings company and then went on to build guns. Companies like Krupp and Thyssen were in steel and forgings before entering defence. There are similar examples in the U.K.; it is a natural progression.
Baba Kalyani
The U.S. has done a great job improving productivity. We’re making a lot more steel in Dearborn with fewer people. The unions have accepted much better work rules.
Alexei Mordashov
You need nerves of steel if climbing aboard a rocket is your career path.
Kathleen Rubins
Netanyahu is pressured easily, gets into a panic, and loses his senses… to run a country like Israel a leader needs to have reason and judgment and nerves of steel, two traits he does not have.
Ariel Sharon
Trump, who in his own history as a developer preferred mob concrete and Chinese steel to the variety produced in the Rust Belt, cannot bring back the steel and manufacturing jobs lost in Lorain, Ohio or western Pennsylvania.
Joy Reid
There’s just not a lot of guys around playing like that these days; a lot of steel players are plugging into stomp boxes, trying to sound like Jeff Beck on a steel guitar.
John Fogerty
Listen, when I was real young, I thought I was made out of steel. I didn’t think anything could hurt me, I was so powerful. But as time goes on, you find out you are not made of steel.
Bruno Sammartino
Once one of the most important steel manufacturing cent

Once one of the most important steel manufacturing centers in the world, Braddock – what’s left of it – solemnly affirms one of the great economic maxims of our society: socialism for the rich, and capitalism for the poor.
John Fetterman
We are not in the business of iron ore. Whatever captive iron ore sources we have, we use it to make steel.
Lakshmi Mittal
Men admire the man who can organize their wishes and thoughts in stone and wood and steel and brass.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I grew up twelve miles outside of Montego Bay. In my early teens, I went to Kingston. It was like a different planet for me. In the country, people are kind. In the city, people are hard an’ cold, like the concrete and steel.
Jimmy Cliff
It’s true that not every day a little black girl in a low-income family from a segregated steel town makes the runoff to be the mayor of the third-largest city in America.
Lori Lightfoot
They used to tease me at the ‘Oprah’ show, ‘Are you really going to do another white Shaker kitchen, with white subway tile and stainless steel appliances?’ And my answer is, ‘I can vary it a bit, but I’m never going to err from classic materials.’
Nate Berkus
For the longest time I was afraid I’d have to keep on working at the factories. There was a steel mill and a pottery; if you didn’t go to college, you went to work in those places.
Daniel Johnston
The steel business is a local business. We do believe in the U.S. economy and would like to have a strong, balanced presence here.
Alexei Mordashov
Pak-China friendship is higher than Himalayas, deeper than ocean, sweeter than honey, and stronger than steel.
Shehbaz Sharif
I’m not a fan of chrome wheels. I sort of like brushed, brushed steel, more European style.
Brooke Burke
The fact that these fans don’t understand that a ring is comprised of steel, metal beams, wood, and a thin sheet mat, and that’s it.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman
We avenge intellect when we dupe a fool, and it is a victory not to be despised for a fool is covered with steel and it is often very hard to find his vulnerable part.
Giacomo Casanova
I love seeing Mark Steel or Mark Thomas, but I’m not that sort of person.
Alex Horne
