Holly Madison
American strategic doctrine suggests that Mexico is of second-level importance to the United States. It ranks below Japan and Indonesia, Brazil and India, Egypt and Israel, and European powers including Britain, France, and Germany. This is a grave geopolitical miscalculation.
Stephen Kinzer
I spent hours from 11 until 16 with Tottenham in the gym playing the ball against the wall. We played against the wall for an hour before we would have a match. Left foot. Right foot. In the square. In the circle. Above the line, below it. Chest control. Thigh control. Volley sideways.

If you’ve got the body and the chutzpah, a pencil skirt is so sexy on older women. Look for ones that fall just below the knee. Think 1940s, cinched-in jackets – imagine you are Lauren Bacall on a date with Humphrey Bogart and you just absolutely have to wear very high heels.
Germany has great skill levels, great infrastructure, high-quality plant. If you go to the U.K., we’re very creative, and we’ve got the language, but energy costs are pretty much the most expensive in the Western world; pensions are pretty expensive, and the skills are significantly below those in Germany and the U.S.

You can see neurosis from below - as a sickness - as mo

Abraham Maslow
We ought to follow through on an idea that was first proposed by President Clinton to allow people over the age of 55 who are not eligible for Medicare into the Medicare system, at cost, and below cost for those who can’t afford it.

I wasn’t going to be an actor. I was going to be a lawyer. I came from a family just above working class, just below middle class, a great family of wonderful values. The idea of me having a chance for a law degree was enticing. Enticing to me but also very enticing to my family.
Gerard Butler

Mark Zandi
My philosophy is to live below your means.
Russell Hornsby

I was wearing corn plasters above and below my toes and taping my ankles twice.

Jules Verne
Progressive, radical, or even revolutionary change has always come from below.

Mellody Hobson
Working with Tracy Morgan on ’30 Rock’ is really great. I love Tracy. He’s wonderful. Well, until his fish tank caught fire – his apartment burned up and flooded my apartment. We live in the same building, but I’m eight floors below him and we had to evacuate.
Sherri Shepherd
There are worlds and more worlds below them, and there are a hundred thousand skies over them. No one has been able to find the limits and boundaries of God.

Guru Nanak
Behavior which appears superficially correct but is intrinsically corrupt always irritates those who see below the surface.

A. J. Odudu
I think I’m slightly older than the generation that was really bred on social media – I had Facebook in high school, but I was growing up in a time where these things were relatively new, and every generation below me is growing up having every single thing they do seen. And that is kind of frightening.
Emily Meade
The vital thing for me is to integrate the history from above with the history from below because only in that way can you show the true consequences of the decisions of Hitler or Stalin or whomever on the ordinary civilians caught up in the battle.

I really love living in cities where the people living above, below and next to you are from totally different worlds to you.
Rupert Friend
In a series of articles beginning on Oct. 2, 1966, I wrote about the long-forgotten history of the Liberty Tree. To call attention to how obscure the site had become, I interviewed waitresses at the Essex Delicatessen below the plaque on Washington Street. None knew what the Liberty Tree was.

I still remember my dismay in the summer of 2007 when – for the first time in the history of planet Earth – America’s share of auto production dropped below 50 percent.

Spring was moving in the air above and in the earth below and around him, penetrating even his dark and lowly little house with its spirit of divine discontent and longing.

Ma Jun
I must admit I found it astonishing to watch the candidates below Donald Trump beat up each other and never lay a glove on the front-runner. I mean, when I was running, everybody went after the front-runner and pointed out my weaknesses and foibles, and that’s part of the normal primary process.
Mitt Romney
If you are born into a family below the national median income, we provide you with an additional $500, and for every contribution made to a child’s account below the national median income, we match it dollar for dollar – the federal government will.
Harold Ford, Jr.
A deck of cards is built like the purest of hierarchies, with every card a master to those below it, a lackey to those above it.
Ely Culbertson
Yes, there’s a higher rate of people living below the poverty line who aren’t vaccinated. But it’s much rarer for that to be a product of choice than a product of circumstance.
Eula Biss
The Gujarat model laced with the Godhra stink is a model of hatred that has taken 2,000 lives, while the Congress model has given 83 flagship programmes and scores of people living below the poverty line have been brought under the Food Security Act.
Growing up with dyslexia and struggling in the classroom because of it, I know how infuriating and frustrating it can be to be treated wrongly as though you’re of below par intelligence.
Toyah Willcox
We’ve got tremendous dumping of steel into our country and aluminum into our country – all manner of products being sold in our country at below cost, stealing American jobs or depressing wages.
Peter Navarro
While I take no pleasure in others’ misfortunes, we’ve historically made most of our profits from other investors behaving in a panicked and irrational fashion and selling us certain stocks at prices far below their intrinsic value. More volatility equals cheaper stocks, which equals higher returns.
Whitney Tilson
They say that a kingdom is like a pyramid: the king on top and the people below. But in this country, it’s upside down.
Bhumibol Adulyadej
I did not wish to take a cabin passage, but rather to g

I did not wish to take a cabin passage, but rather to go before the mast and on the deck of the world, for there I could best see the moonlight amid the mountains. I do not wish to go below now.
Henry David Thoreau
When old people in power scold children and young people for ‘selfishness’ if they don’t get triple-vaxxed, or if they let their mask slip below their nose occasionally, or try to have some fun in the sun, it’s obvious who actually is being selfish.
Miranda Devine
Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience a still, small voice says to us, something is out of tune.
Carl Jung
One of the biggest mistakes people make when hanging curtains is hanging them too low. It can make a room feel really shrimpy to hang the curtain rod just above the window moldings. Go all the way up to just below crown moulding or below the ceiling if there is no crown.
Bobby Berk
Reducing caloric intake is the only proven method of extending life. If caloric intake is reduced to 20 percent below maintenance, you can extend your lifespan considerably.
S. Jay Olshansky
Certainly ‘Survivors,’ when we put that series out, the second series dipped below 5 million for one of the episodes – all of a sudden, there’s no recommission, and I think that’s dreadful.
Max Beesley
Richard Sherman has kind of the peak of self-confidence. I’m a little below that. But I’ve learned a lot from him.
Zach Ertz
I was active on Facebook for a while, responding to comments and thanking fans for their appreciation. But I found that the Facebook feed was numbing my emotions. I’d see an extraordinarily tragic news item, and even before I could react to it, see a hilarious meme right below it. This was confusing me.
Vijay Sethupathi
Never above you. Never below you. Always beside you.
Walter Winchell
Full-time workers earning the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 only earn about $14,500 a year in wages – below the poverty line for a family of two. That’s unacceptable.

Sarah Palin is brilliant. She is a media magnet and a media magnate. She creates headlines and draws crowds wherever she goes, whether it’s 98 degrees in the desert of Arizona or below freezing in the snow of Wisconsin.
Mark McKinnon
Writers are a little below clowns and a little above trained seals.
John Steinbeck
To love is to believe, to hope, to know; Tis an essay, a taste of Heaven below!
Edmund Waller
I have recommended in my writings the study of civic virtues, without which there is no redemption. I have written likewise (and repeat my words) that reforms, to be beneficial, must come from above, that those which come from below are irregularly gained and uncertain.
Jose Rizal
Even when I was living below the poverty line as a novelist, I was still living better than 99.5% of the human population of the world. But in my little, soft realm of trying to amuse a few dozen middle-class people with my books and articles, I did struggle to survive in my own way.
Jonathan Ames
At the end of the day, inflation has been below 2% for quite a long time, and to me, symmetry means getting somewhere above 2% inflation at some point in my Fed career.
Charles L. Evans
There are always young bands playing in their garages. A lot of punk rock is not going to be in the mainstream. It’s below the radar. The beauty of it is that you’re not supposed to always know. It’s subterranean.
Billie Joe Armstrong
The first stage in a technology’s advance is that it’ll fall below a critical price. After it falls below a critical price, it will tend, if it’s successful, to rise above a critical mass, a penetration.
Chris Anderson
PLease, do not visualize that we exist above you such as in heaven. The concepts above and below are products of your mind. The soul does not swing upwards. It exists in the center and orients itself in every direction.
Hans Bender
Any time Detroit scores more than 100 points and holds the other team below 100 points they almost always win.
Doug Collins
I want to be a man who serves my family, a man who increases justice in my community. I want to be all of those things, and yet it is just below the surface that I want to strangle somebody when they cut in front of me on the freeway.
Dean Jones
The place where we were operating was not fit to be called an operating room. Aseptic work had not been done in it for some years. The floor could not be scrubbed properly, or the water would go through on the laboratories below.
Frederick Banting
The 2012 payout will be the lowest in our history: well below 50 percent.

Christina Koch
If a house is priced appropriately, make a bid 10 percent below that amount.

Slow, skinny, and an utter countryside coward: I lived in dread of nettles, spiders, and the very sound of a wasp. As a victim, I was beneath the dignity of the bullies in my year but fair game to the ones in the year below.
Robert Webb
I work in an industry where most people are way below 50.
Kate Garraway
When Reagan left office, he was the most unpopular living president, apart from Nixon, even below Carter. If you look at his years in office, he was not particularly popular. He was more or less average. He severely harmed the American economy.
Noam Chomsky
In cold weather states like Vermont, where the weather can get to 20 below zero, home heating assistance is critically important. In fact, it is a life and death issue.
Bernie Sanders
Anyone that hates on you is always below you, because t

Anyone that hates on you is always below you, because they’re just jealous of what you have.
Miley Cyrus
He who would search for pearls must dive below.
John Dryden
I guess, when I go there in the centre, when I do my rehabilitation, I look at the people with only one leg and I actually envy them because I’d love to have one leg. I guess the ones that only have one leg, they envy the ones that they are only missing one leg below the knee, and on and on.
Alex Zanardi
Each time I caught sight of geese swooping in formation across the sky, I wondered how our life below might look from their perspective, and imagined that, were they ever to indulge in such speculation, the high-rises might seem to them like firs massed in a grove.
Teju Cole
Man is a spiritual intelligence, who has taken flesh with the object of gaining experience in worlds below the spiritual, in order that he may be able to master and to rule them, and in later ages take his place in the creative and directing hierarchies of the universe.
Annie Besant
Surely the fact that a uniformed police officer is wearing his hair below his collar will make him no less identifiable as a policeman.
Thurgood Marshall
We must assent to the will of Heaven above and conform to the wishes of men on earth below, but the government should assert the majesty of its warlike might in order to drive away the hordes of fierce and cruel men. We know that the dispositions of these outer barbarians are as ravenous as those of wolves.
Zhang Zhidong
It is not a coincidence that we have managed to send rockets into space, but our literacy rate continues to be below the world average. It is because governments don’t want an educated electorate. Because if we get educated, we will start asking the right questions. And they don’t want the right questions being asked.
Anubhav Sinha
We think if the economy remains weak that we could see mortgage rates trail down and we think that we could see rates below seven percent into early next year.
Franklin Raines
When I made ‘Eight Below,’ they wanted me to shoot digital, and I didn’t want to do it because that’s just what I need, to get a great series of takes and then find out the camera was frozen.
Frank Marshall
Montana is perfect for telecommuting because of the quality of life, because our housing prices in most communities are below the national average.
Greg Gianforte
There can be no possible question that cold is felt much more keenly in the thin air of nineteen thousand feet than it is below.

I live way below my means.

Starting a new retirement plan for those below a certain age is something tens of millions of Americans have already been through at work.
Mitch Daniels
Following an extended boom in housing, the demand for homes began to weaken in mid-2005. By the middle of 2006, sales of both new and existing homes had fallen about 15 percent below their peak levels. Homebuilders responded to the fall in demand by sharply curtailing construction.
Ben Bernanke
The secretariat will play a pivotal role in decision-making above a certain level, where basic policies are involved, but below that, we will have to leave the implementation to whoever is in charge.
Rajiv Gandhi
Praise God, from whom all blessings flow! Praise Him, all creatures here below! Praise Him above, ye heavenly host! Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost!
Thomas Ken
Jane, Henry VIII’s third wife, wasn’t present at her son’s christening, as ritual dictated she had to spend another month in bed. From her chamber she could have looked down on the christening procession below, and must have felt great pride.
Lucy Worsley
I like the South: Southern literature and that relationship between grotesqueness and living below the Mason-Dixon line. But I also understand that people view it as a limitation – as an actor and as a person – perceptions that are really wrong: that you are ignorant and possibly illiterate, or that it’s cute.
Holly Hunter
We are at last on the high lands of Mexico, the districts which at least three different races have chosen to settle in, neglecting the fertile country below.
Edward Burnett Tylor
To go to the world below, having a soul which is like a vessel full of injustice, is the last and worst of all the evils.
Changes and progress very rarely are gifts from above. They come out of struggles from below.
Noam Chomsky
I don’t think anyone in this country wants to hear anything about President Trump from below the waist, below the belt.
Abby Huntsman
It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are… than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise.
Henry David Thoreau
In some of the great cities of Europe – Paris, Vienna, Prague, and Brussels – tourists bored with life above ground can descend below. All these cities have sewer museums and tours, and all expose their underbelly willingly to the curious. But not London, arguably the home of the most splendid sewer network in Europe.
Rose George
If you scratch below the surface and ask what really makes me tick, it’s the liberalism of trying to promote freedom and opportunity. Promoting social mobility is one of the keys to that.
Nick Clegg
The fear is that if the dollar falls below 50% of the currency basket held by commercial and central banks and insurance companies, there may be a democratization of the way currencies are priced.
Porter Stansberry
The deficit – the U.S. knows our deficit is too large. We are committed to bringing it down. We are bringing it down. The deficit came in for fiscal year ’05 at considerably below where it was the prior year.
John W. Snow
People don’t like what’s happened to the big parties. They think they’ve been dragged off to the extremes. They think the quality of leadership is below what a country like the United Kingdom ought to have available. And they want something different.
David Gauke
I think one of the ways that we can fight against clima

I think one of the ways that we can fight against climate change is keep showing what we’re doing to the planet, and we’ve got a unique vantage point up here to see what is happening to our earth below us, and to give people a sense of how tiny our atmosphere is and how much we need to protect it.
Shannon Walker
The West begins where the average annual rainfall drops below twenty inches. Water is important to people who do not have it, and the same is true of control.
Joan Didion
My father was a self-employed textile agent, and the shop below his office was an art gallery.
Lisa Jewell
Trust your hunches. They’re usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.
Joyce Brothers
Always sing below your potential.
Nellie Melba
Music, the greatest good that mortals know and all of heaven we have hear below.
Joseph Addison
I never, ever read the comments below an article on the Web. People are mean. I’m a human being.
Katori Hall
Given the relativity concept, poverty cannot be eliminated. Indeed, an economic upturn with a broad improvement in household income does not guarantee a decrease in the size of the poor population, especially when the income growth of households below the poverty line is less promising than the overall.
Carrie Lam
My personal view is that Iran, left to its own devices, will get itself to that step right below a nuclear weapon, that permanent breakout stage, so the needle isn’t quite in the red for the international community. And, frankly, that will be as destabilizing as their actually having a weapon.
Michael Hayden
These ancient huts were soon cleared of the rubbish covering them. I planned them, and removed them for investigation below, which undertaking took until the fourth of Nov.
Howard Carter
‘Eclipse’ is a concept piece, and its concept centers on 36 large light bulbs strung from above in a geometrical pattern and at different heights, some of them at times down below the dancers’ chest level.
Robert Gottlieb
Even the National Bank of Romania doesn’t have the huge resources needed to intervene in the market and keep the leu at an acceptable level, because they’re drawing close to a floor below which the bank’s reserves can’t drop. The central bank has to wait for a moment of calm to efficiently conduct its interventions.
Traian Basescu
Know then this truth, enough for man to know virtue alone is happiness below.
Alexander Pope
Right now we think that rates will stay low, that you’ll be able to get a mortgage below seven percent and that’s kicked off a refinance boom that’s going to put more money in the pockets of consumers.
Franklin Raines
The product of mental labor – science – always stands far below its value, because the labor-time necessary to reproduce it has no relation at all to the labor-time required for its original production.
Karl Marx
I don’t really care about people who are ranked below me or whatever. I just want the belt. If other people are calling me out, that’s OK. That’s on them.
Rory MacDonald
I was kind of a slap hitter, trying to get base hits, hit line drives, stay below a certain trajectory with my ball.
Ben Zobrist
Plate tectonics is not all havoc and destruction. The slow movement of continents and ocean floors recycles carbon dioxide dissolved in the oceans back into the atmosphere. Without this slow speed carbon cycle, Earth’s temperatures would cool dozens of degrees below your comfort zone.
Seth Shostak
Jude has a very different character. It is not the cradle of Christianity, or of the assembly on earth: it is its decay and its death here below. It does not keep its first estate.
John Nelson Darby
Those who sit at the feast will continue to enjoy themselves even though the veil that separates them from the world of toiling reality below has been lifted by mass revolts and critics.
Mary Ritter Beard
I have a very different fear if I’m all alone in the summit area of Mount Everest and if I know that there is nothing below me, no Sherpa, no tent, no rope.
Reinhold Messner
We spent four days filming in a helicopter. I had never seen London from that viewpoint – you get a sense of how big it is and how easy it is to get lost. There was one day when we couldn’t find Brick Lane: we spent 25 minutes looking and then realised it was directly below us.
Asif Kapadia
He could not see a belt without hitting below it.
Margot Asquith
The art of politics consists in knowing precisely when it is necessary to hit an opponent slightly below the belt.
Konrad Adenauer
I like a hem below my knee even though I was blessed with fairly good gams.
Lynda Resnick
OK, it was black, it was below grade, I was female, Asian American, young, too young to have served. Yet I think none of the opposition in that sense hurt me.
Maya Lin
I always think that people who are – maybe ‘insane’ is too strong a word, but there’s more of a spiritual connection. Sometimes they can see below the surface.
Dennis Christopher
It’s one thing to boo, but to actually pelt someone down below because you’re upset a sporting event went a certain way is just so bizarre to me.
Ariel Helwani
When you’re writing there’s a deep, deep level of concentration way below your normal self. This strange voice, these strange sentences come out of you.
John Banville
Being a monarchist, and fawning over those ‘above’ you, you must naturally despise those ‘below’ or on the same socioeconomic level as yourself, because that is how hierarchy worship works.
Julie Burchill
My personality is based on an anonymity and failure. Failure and anonymity, those are my strengths – superiority from below.
James Murphy
New Orleans lives by the water and fights it, a sand ca

New Orleans lives by the water and fights it, a sand castle set on a sponge nine feet below sea level, where people made music from heartache, named their drinks for hurricanes and joked that one day you’d be able to tour the city by gondola.
Nancy Gibbs
There will be a competition for the memorial. And then it can be developed with trees, with planting. It can become a very beautiful place protected from the streets, because it is below. And it can be something very moving and very private.
Daniel Libeskind
Autocracy is a government of the few from above; Bolshevism is a government of the few from below.
Ameen Rihani
The metaphor of the subterranean is at work in a lot of Northwest writers and artists. Zooming in closer and closer and closer, then below, to the worms and the centipede.
Katherine Dunn
The tides which flow and lapse in the Bristol Channel are often distained by the freshets of many streams falling through wooded coombes below the moor.
Henry Williamson
One of my most vivid memories from 1974 was the gas station at the foot of the hill below my Southern California high school – car lines snaking out into the street, heralding the failure of the government’s price controls and lame ideas such as odd-even rationing.
Nina Easton
Democracy is a bundle of rights and freedoms wrestled from the powerful. Our rulers only surrender their power when compelled to – when the cost of resisting pressure from below becomes greater than the cost of giving ground to it.
Owen Jones
For the participants of whisper networks – often women – these networks hum below the surface. Whispers are take it or leave it. Whispers are a defense, not an offense.
Sarah Jeong
Painfully to attain possession of what we do not want, and then painfully to waste our days in attempting to rid ourselves of it, seems to be a part of our discipline here below.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
One of the things I wanted to introduce in The Same Sea beyond transcending the conflict, is the fact that deep down below all our secrets are the same.
Amos Oz
With gridlock the norm, Congress’s approval rating is below 10 percent and the public has lost faith in its national leadership.
Ron Fournier
As I was working I noticed that the way I designed the differential gearing actually created a spare drive that sat directly below the emperor’s feet, or where they would be if he were to sit in the chariot.
Kit Williams
I got beat up by the comic-book kids when I was younger! They were cooler than me. Talk about levels of geekdom, I was a couple rungs below the kids who read comic books. Yeah. Not so cool, man.
James Badge Dale
I looked below and saw my people there, and all were well and happy except one, and he was lying like the dead – and that one was myself.
Black Elk
Kids below 10 or 12, I think they just need to learn by playing at golf. Later on, in high school, when they develop muscles and everything, that’s when they need to see about getting lessons.
Bubba Watson
When my dad passed, there’s a lot of sadness right below the surface, and I think there will be until the day I die. So, writing sad songs helps it. And when I sing them, it’s pure therapy for me.
Ashley Monroe
We’re all shareholders. These guys below me, they see the CEO taking it easy, it’s their money.
Ivan Glasenberg
Britain’s FTSE 100 stock index has not just recovered from its post-vote low close below 6,000. It has surged to close at nearly 6,600. That’s its highest closing value yet of 2016, and within reach of its all-time highs.
Kelly Evans
Think about it this way – if you have five senses, and they’re all feeding into one place, kind of like a bottleneck, then now your mind has to make decisions of what is important and what is going to be above the radar and what’s going to be below the radar.
Apollo Robbins
By subliminal, I mean things that occur in our world that are below the threshold of consciousness but do have a psychological effect on us.
Leonard Mlodinow
By definition, poetry works with qualities and dynamics that mainstream society is reluctant to face head-on. It’s an interesting phenomenon that by necessity, poetry is just below the radar.
David Whyte
The postal department does indeed undertake a lot of thankless work and is forced to provide services below cost for bookpost and the like. The answer may lie in some form of a universal service obligation fund, not price-fixing.
Sucheta Dalal
Even in a healthy society, violence, lawlessness, and predation lie just below the surface.
William Barr
