That is the thing that brought the Black community thro

KiKi Layne

Diane Paulus
The sheer number of legendary narratives and historically verifiable incidents invites us to revise assumptions about the origins of biological and chemical warfare and its moral and technological constraints.

Susan L. Taylor
I grew up in Orangeburg, South Carolina, which has the proud distinction of being the home to two of the eight Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the state: South Carolina State University and Claflin University.

Historically, corporate aversion to politics has at times held firm even under national leadership that threatens the health of the economy, and with it the well-being of every company.

Fareed Zakaria
Humor has historically been tied to the mores of the day. The Yellow Kid was predicated on what people thought was funny about the immigrant Irish. When you’re different in a society, you’re funny.
Will Eisner
Historically, and even now, women have been asked to give up on their dreams way more than men, mostly – because it’s sort of like you’re supposed to once you become a wife and mother. That’s a generalization; that’s what the mentality has been.
Susan Kelechi Watson
So always, if we look back, concern for face-to-face morality, and its modern emphasis on justice as well, have historically evolved as religious issues.
Huston Smith
Historically, figuring out what to do to the tax code has been almost as contentious a political issue as judicial appointments.
Kevin Hassett

Benjamin Watson
I am going to pick on ‘Huffington Post.’ A lot of its content is great. They are doing a lot of original content now, but historically, a lot of what they did was aggregation. Newspapers don’t want to become that, and yet ‘Huffington Post’ is incredibly popular. It’s incredibly successful.

Chuck Hagel
Historically, there has been a gap between single-purpose racecars and street-legal models – commonly called supercars – that emulate the real racers on the road.

Historically, epics are set in Africa or Asia or the Wild West, but if you make an epic today it’s hard to disassociate from the contemporary realities of those places.
Baz Luhrmann

While marriage is historically associated with dire obligation and clipped wings, I’ve found that it actually liberates you to take on adventure and achieve your dreams. I like to call my husband ‘my person.’ Find your ‘person,’ and you can do anything!
Lake Bell
I wrote ‘Young Guns’ on spec because I really believed that the young age of these guys historically, the whole legend of Billy dying at 21, would attract a young staple of stars, and that would be the game-changer.
John Fusco
I feel that historical novelists owe it to our readers to try to be as historically accurate as we can with the known facts. Obviously, we have to fill in the blanks. And then in the final analysis, we’re drawing upon our own imaginations. But I think that readers need to be able to trust an author.
Sharon Kay Penman
Taken slightly historically, the turning point in the E.U. was actually the Single European Act, the Thatcher/Maastricht-era stuff, which was turning the E.U. into very much a market system.

Twentieth-century welfare state capitalism was historically unique in that national income was split between wages and profits, labour and capital.

Anu Garg
Historically, the Justice Department has been Congress’ ally in fighting wrongdoing in government, but under this Justice Department and Eric Holder, rather than being the people’s attorney, Eric Holder sees himself as the president’s attorney and he’ll do anything to defend the president.
Blake Farenthold
One thing that people outside Chicago need to understand is that the city is not just one thing. It is one city, but it is huge and sprawling. And historically, it has been one of America’s most segregated cities.

Historically, industrial revolutions haven’t been kind to poor people. Despite the potential benefits technology can offer, the immediate impact on the lowest-paid members of society has often been negative.

Judith Butler
Historically, the minority party in Congress votes against raising the debt limit, forcing the majority party to whip its members into casting politically painful votes in favor.
Peter Welch
Historically, baseball has used the 60-yard dash to measure speed. In the most trivial way, this makes sense. This measurement, however, doesn’t tell us much about baseball speed.
Gabe Kapler
Black Lives Matter was born out of our unwavering love for black people and our undeniable rage over a system that has historically dehumanized black people.
Patrisse Cullors
Historically, Hollywood comedy has arrived in skinny envelopes. From fence post Buster Keaton to herky-jerky Jerry Lewis to wiry nerve-bundle Woody Allen to hung-loose Richard Pryor to whippy contortionist Jim Carrey, its comics and clowns have tended to be sliced thin and bendable.
James Wolcott
Historically, Congress hasn’t paid much attention to the confines the Constitution establishes.
Tim Griffin
Historically, the British have always been rather wary of grand engineering projects – perhaps understandably, given that many of them have been delivered late and over budget.

The Congress has historically played covert communal politics in order to create what in India we call vote banks where you pit one community against another and so on in order to secure votes.

America has historically met the challenges to its national security with decisive actions that defeated or, at a minimum, contained the threat.

Thomas Heatherwick
When I started researching history in the 1960s, a lot of women about whom I’ve subsequently written were actually footnotes to history. There was a perception that women weren’t important. And it’s true. Women were seen historically as far inferior to men.
Alison Weir
Historically, narratives of forgiveness were part of both the anti-slavery movement and the civil rights movement in America. ‘Uncle Tom’s Cabin,’ for instance, was based loosely on the life of the Rev.

Paul Stamets
The rating agencies historically actually did a pretty good job rating regular bonds.
Andrew Ross Sorkin
It has been possible to trace historically back to a very early age the taxes which were imposed on medicines, spices and similar substances in German towns.

Otto Wallach
The candidate out front on Labor Day has historically been the one who stayed ahead in November.

Historically, art and music and writing and film have been one of the only tools that is effective against tyranny.
Zoe Kazan
Capitalism historically has been a very dynamic force, and behind that force is technical progress, innovation, new ideas, new products, new technologies, and new methods of managing teams.

John Cameron Mitchell
The one thing that is distinctive about America historically has been the fact that we are all able to engage in public discourse without the political becoming personal.
Ajit Pai
Historically, large-scale global trade has served two functions: 1) the exchange of goods between willing sellers and buyers described in Econ 101 textbooks; 2) as a tool of state aggrandizement, in which the private parties are stand-ins for governmental interests.
Charles C. Mann
Historically, bad money always drives out good. Accordingly, if a central bank anywhere in the world sets up its currency to be backed by any kind of hard currency, it would cause people all around the world to desire that currency for their savings, rather than dollars.
Porter Stansberry
We speak about understanding each other, having those conversations nationwide – culturally, historically – and yet there’s a lot of gaps. So I want to assist with closing the gap of knowing about and hearing about our Latino communities in terms of literature, in terms of writing.
Juan Felipe Herrera
We have fried things in cubes, historically. We tried bars of Hollandaise, we tried different shapes, but it ultimately seemed like the cube was the right shape.

I think that seeing as much support as somebody like Obama as a black candidate running for president in a country that historically has had issues with the African-American people, and them having issues vice-versa, is a miraculous thing.
David Draiman
Many of the best firms historically in venture capital have been multi-sector.
Marc Andreessen
Historically, art has always had a market. When one medieval fiefdom defeated another they would drag back its jewels, gold, tapestries and art objects as the spoils of war. Art equaled power, riches and culture.
Arne Glimcher
There’s a wider agenda that speaks to what the Democratic Party has historically stood for, which are economic rights for those who are struggling in the middle class, concern for the poor, for economic justice for those who are marginalized in our society.
Mike McCurry
We fight wars from progressively great heights and distances, the blessings of technology steadily removing the personal human element from what was historically an extremely personal experience.
Steven Weber
Historically, China is not a nation of sportsmen. We traditionally put more emphasis on being close to nature than pushing endlessly to excel. A philosophy that values tranquil contemplation of the landscape cannot easily be adapted to the Olympic slogan of ‘higher, stronger, faster.’
Ai Weiwei
Historically, the responsibility for voting on the debt limit has gone to the party in the majority.
Jack Lew
We’ll be aggressive on trade because we know that deals that have been made historically have resulted in the great loss of manufacturing jobs, a great amount of closed manufacturing businesses. We don’t want that to continue.

Eileen Myles
As a Jew, I recognize the importance of Israel historic

As a Jew, I recognize the importance of Israel historically, liturgically: its place in our history and in our sacred texts. I fully recognize and appreciate that. I just think that, for me, a sole focus on Israel gets in the way of the pursuit of a relationship with God and a more spiritual existence within Judaism.
David Gregory
Whatever can be noted historically can be found within history.
Martin Heidegger
Every year the literary press praises dozens if not hundreds of novels to the skies, asserting explicitly or implicitly that these books will probably not be suffering water damage in the basements of their authors’ houses 20 years from now. But historically, anyway, that’s not the way the novelistic ecology works.
Lev Grossman
How can you have the religion of the sovereign be the religion of the state if the sovereign belongs to many religions? And it’s at that point, I think, historically, that you start to see people saying maybe the state should not associate itself with any religion. Maybe there shouldn’t be any official religion.
Noah Feldman
Historically, unfortunately, race seems to be the major division that humanity has imposed on itself, a way of subdividing into smaller groups.
David Mitchell
Historically, we have always seen reversion to the mean. After stocks have had an unusually great 10 or 20 years, they typically turn in subpar results over the next 10 or 20, and after bad 10- to 20-year stretches, the next 10 to 20 tend to be above average.
James O’Shaughnessy
American power confers benefits on most inhabitants of the planet, even on many who dislike it and some who actively oppose it, because the United States plays a major, constructive, and historically unprecedented role in the world.
Michael Mandelbaum
To his credit, Obama didn’t just come to Washington to be someone. Like Reagan, he came to Washington to do something – to introduce a powerful social democratic stream into America’s deeply and historically individualist polity.
Charles Krauthammer
Historically, people of color and the Diaspora have been at the bottom of the barrel, even as it relates to immigration. If we don’t engage in the discussion, then what is it that we’re saying to people? That we don’t care?
Marcia Fudge
We modern Marxists regard socialism as a historically brief transitional stage between feudalism and capitalism, necessary only in backward countries.
John McCarthy
Culturally, musically, historically Cuba and Puerto Rico are like two wings of one bird.

Rowan Williams
The EPA historically has been an agency where people go to work at the agency and spend their entire career, 30, 40 years at the agency.
Andrew R. Wheeler
I am from Ghana, and although Ghana is celebrated as a relatively peaceful country in a historically war-torn region, the issues of development and recovery are still apparent.
Philomena Kwao
Our society is divided by the culture wars into the Left and Right, and the United Methodist Church has always stood historically in the center and has been willing to listen to and to bring together those things that often are found in opposite camps.
Adam Hamilton
Historically, Jose Mourinho is not a manager who chops and changes his team and he’s not big on rotation.
Graeme Souness
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
The first person is a tradition I relate to and that I use; historically, it’s been the voice I work in. But the hair on the back of my neck stands up when I’m referred to as a ‘confessional’ writer.
Meghan Daum
Historically, America has answered to a higher authority.
Lee Greenwood
I fell through a crack for years. Historically, I am a nothing because I fit in no category. I can only be me.
Howard Hodgkin
I love Milano. Historically, the city is the biggest intellectual design thinking container. It is the cradle of design as well as the hometown of the mothers of its important heroes.
Marcel Wanders
Choreographers, historically, are born, not made – their talents drive them to it.
Robert Gottlieb
Historically, Disney Channel stars don’t survive well outside of the Disney environment.
Dylan Sprouse
Certainly, historically, there has been more attention given in the international media to Indian English-language writers than to Pakistani English-language writers. But that, in my opinion, was justified by the sheer number of excellent writers coming from India and the Indian diaspora.
Mohsin Hamid
Russian scorn for liberal democracy has a long history, and a certain kind of Russian disdain for the West is nothing new. As far back as 1920, Lenin declared that parliaments were ‘historically obsolete’ and predicted that it was just a matter of time before they disappeared.
Anne Applebaum
Historically, the most favorably viewed figure in any administration is the first lady, regardless of her husband’s popularity. That is largely because first ladies avoid the political fray and are ritualistically presented as a warm, human presence in the White House.
Ari Melber
Historically, the women who have been the great painters of the canon have very often have been the wives or daughters of supportive men. Like Artemisia, whose father was a very established painter. I will say that the two current contemporary artists I admire the most are women: Kara Walker and Swoon.
Molly Crabapple
They call Howard University the ‘capstone of black education.’ Howard was one of the historically black colleges where people want to go and send their children. Both of my grandfathers went through the medical school, and being in D.C., not far from New York City, it was a natural choice for me.
Lynn Whitfield
Our people historically have gone through a lot. That is our story. You can trace it all the way back to slavery. But it is incumbent upon everyone, no matter what field, to make it easier on the next generation.
Donovan Bailey
The SCO countries have been connected historically through shared commonalities, which we are constantly rejuvenating.
Sushma Swaraj
Historically, more people have died of religion than cancer.
Dick Francis
Historically, mass demonstrations have worked best at s

Historically, mass demonstrations have worked best at shifting public opinion and pressuring the powers-that-be when organizers highlighted one concrete demand: ‘Bring Our Boys Home from Vietnam’; ‘End Segregation Now’; ‘Support Women’s Right to Choose.’
Stephanie Coontz
I think, from a standpoint of editorial, you know, AOL historically has played in a very deep way across many different verticals in the content space. Huffington Post adds a very large new dimension to that.
Tim Armstrong
I’m kind of floating out there as an artist. I’m in a safe place where I can play a girlfriend or a best friend or a mommy or a lawyer, but a huge part of me is unused. I’m classically trained, historically inclined and somewhat revolutionary by nature, so I’m frustrated as an artist.
Nicole Ari Parker
Saudi Arabia has historically attempted to influence politics in Beirut.
Jamal Khashoggi
The real reason Jews don’t have more Hanukkah music is that, historically, American Jewish singer-songwriters were too busy making Christmas music. ‘White Christmas,’ ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,’ ‘Silver Bells’ and ‘The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting)’ were all written by Jews.
I come from a democratic world. My world is moderate Democrats, Reagan-type Democrats if you want, the blues or whatever you call them, the Blue Dogs. That’s been my world, historically.
Carl Paladino
Historically the Puritans left England to escape religious persecution, and they promptly turned around and started persecuting the people they didn’t agree with – the scarlet letter A, and the stocks and the dunking board came from that. That puritanism is still there.
Hugh Hefner
Historically, the family has played the primary role in educating children for life, with the school providing supplemental scaffolding to the family.
Stephen Covey
In Khazak culture, historically, if any traveller comes riding from a long way, there is an obligation to take him into your home. For the first three days, the host doesn’t even have the right to ask his name, his destination or his business.
Tim Cope
Beta males and females historically fare poorly in anchor positions, and whoever has the dominate, or more alpha, personality will always win out in spoken word count simply because they don’t wait for an opening.
Dana Loesch
Health care historically has been a very siloed field that’s organized around medical specialties – urology, cardiac surgery, and so forth – and around the supply of these specialty services. The patient is the ping-pong ball that moves from service to service.
Michael Porter
Immigrants have historically been an entrepreneurial bunch.
Brad Feld
Sometime in the not too distant future, denying gays the right to marry will be viewed as historically corrupt – as corrupt as denying slaves their freedom.
Mark McKinnon

Steve Clarke
Historically, there has been a clear and essential connection between marriage and responsible procreation and child rearing.
Pam Bondi
New Yorkers are historically tough crowds.
Mat Kearney
I think a lot of things are shoved in our face, politically and historically, for money, and that’s the motive.
Kendra Wilkinson
I want to push the boundaries on the roles that have historically been given to actresses who look like me. There is so much more we can do. There always has been.
KiKi Layne
Historically a publicly unaccepted but incredibly rich culture, queer love was only able to exist privately for a long time, expressed in society through coded art forms.
King Princess
Casting me as King Arthur was quite bold of ‘Spamalot’s producers, although it has been historically proved Arthur was Asian, and that Sunday trading started with Asians in 11th-century Britain.
Sanjeev Bhaskar
You have a class of investors and you have a class of speculators. The speculators historically haven’t been big enough to cause the investors to doubt the long-term vision of stock.
Jim Cramer
Historically, royal families have represented an institution. The institution is built on heritage, and is timeless in that sense.
Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark
I’ve read the ‘Public Enemies’ script and, no, it’s not 100 percent historically accurate. But it’s by far the closest thing to fact Hollywood has attempted, and for that, I am both excited and quietly relieved.
Bryan Burrough
I’m quite bullish. We’re coming up on year 15 of a flat stock market. Historically that’s a pretty good sign. So I’m not a hedge-fund manager but if I was I think I’d be feeling pretty good.
Marc Andreessen
The thing people have to remember is there’s nothing natural about racism as it exists in America. I mean, we know this historically. We can look at 1619, when Africans first came here, and how early African slaves intermixed pretty indiscriminately with indentured white servants.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
We are moving beyond the non-fiction novel to different kinds of narrative art, different forms of cognition. Loaded with moral and political point, narrative has been recalibrated to record, honour, and protest the latest historically specific instance of futility and mess.
Geoff Dyer
Legitimate institutions historically have been defenseless in the face of outright fraud.
Gary Weiss
Marriage has historically been in the domain of the States to regulate.
Corrine Brown
Why do investors seem to care about ‘billion dollar exits?’ Historically, top venture funds have driven returns from their ownership in just a few companies in a given fund of many companies.
Aileen Lee
Historically, black music has influenced other cultures and other genres and created other genres.
I’m far from immune to the American, perhaps historically male, prejudice toward practical and physical competence; I hope I’ve also considered that prejudice enough to have some distance from it.
Robert Pinsky
I went to a historically black college.

I went to a historically black college.
John David Washington
The Victorian Age was very stimulating, historically impressive.
Prunella Scales
I had lived all of my youthful dreams, but I couldn’t think of many adult ones. I finally realized that we don’t have many dreams for adults because, historically, people have always died much younger than they do today.
Jack Gilbert
I know the Mad Hatter has a long history in the ‘Batman’ canon. He’s quite a historically rich character, and he’s come in a lot of shapes and forms and interpretations.
Benedict Samuel
Art is not boosterism, it’s not propaganda, and it’s not spin, but that’s not something that art does, and nor has it historically ever done it.
Junot Diaz
And historically the owners have used loyalty to a team or a city to hold players as opposed to always paying their worth.
Lynn Swann
We’ve seen historically how marginalized communities or historically marginalized communities particularly suffer from tech companies unchecked data collection and use.

Ilyasah Shabazz
I want to buy them, because historically these have been great engines of enrichment for the middle class, ‘historically’ meaning now for a good ten years.
Jim Cramer
At 80 million, millennials, born between 1980 and 2000, are the largest generation in history. Yet they are a demographic Congress has historically either taken for granted or ignored altogether.
S.E. Cupp
Ours is an open and accepting society, and has historically provided an avenue for lawful immigration to all those willing to accept the responsibilities of citizenship.
Spencer Bachus
Historically, Hong Kong has served as an important bridge between China and the world. Our freedoms, stability and the rule of law have been the reasons for our success.
Joshua Wong
Most lawsuits against the EPA historically have come either because of the agency’s lack of regard for a statute or because the EPA failed in an obligation or deadline.
Scott Pruitt
Snapchat really has to do with the way photographs have changed. Historically, photos have always been used to save really important memories: major life moments. But today… pictures are being used for talking.
Evan Spiegel
Historically, the French have had a romantic attachment to their bikes. Though the first functioning two-wheeler is thought to have been invented by a German in 1817, it was the French who popularized and marketed the device in the 1860s, giving it the name ‘bicycle.’
Elaine Sciolino
Historically, almost every cookbook and chef have taught that when you’re cooking a piece of meat, the first step should be searing.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
Readers are hungry to have their stories in the world, to see mirrors of themselves if the stories are about people like them, and to have windows if the stories are about people who have been historically absent in literature.
Jacqueline Woodson
The texture my hair, my skin tone; it does work, you don’t have to change. But historically we’ve seen fashion try to change that: straighten your hair, thrown on a super straight silky wig, lighten your skin tone.
KiKi Layne
I am hopelessly devoted to paper. Nothing against e-readers of any sort – anything that keeps people reading is okay by me – but I am not, historically, an early adopter of such things.
Jonathan Dee
The amount of writing that people do online is astonishing, and historically unprecedented.
Clive Thompson
It’s really important we stay in touch with our customers and try to, over time, have more packages and flexibility than perhaps we have historically offered. And that’s part of that tension that is healthy that is going on in the marketplace.
Brian L. Roberts
Horror films are the ones that pay the bills, and historically, they have shown that they are good investments. They helped Universal survive with that initial splash of horror films in the 1930s and ’40s. And horror films kept New Line alive with the ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ series.
Christopher Young
Historically, there had been many periods of Chinese Renaissance.
Hu Shih
Money is hardly neutral. Its connection to power makes it a highly charged social phenomenon and a mediator of relationships. Because it has historically been controlled by men, it has given men a tool for controlling women.
Ann Cotton
The Turks have not been historically good about keeping pressure on ISIS.
Dan Crenshaw
Historically, Vince McMahon’s company has always been where the Hulk Hogans get the push and the Paul Orndorffs and Jake Roberts does the pushing.
Shane Douglas
There aren’t very many notable Native American female figures historically. That’s the way that it’s been. Pocahontas and Sacajawea.

The American public historically was really not part of the stock market.
Ron Chernow
Historically venture capital funds have only allowed elite investors in.
Brock Pierce
Watch the History Channel if you want it literal and historically perfect.
Emily Blunt
Priesthood is not a convenient, historically conditioned form of Church organisation, but is rooted in the Incarnation, in the priesthood and mission of Christ himself.
Arthur Middleton
I feel that, historically, the Art Deco period has the

I feel that, historically, the Art Deco period has the most resonance for me. As a person, it has to be the plucky Clara Bow, the heroine of American silent movies of the 1920s. She embodied feminine dressing mixed with men’s style. All this then evolved into the exquisite style and simplicity of Coco Chanel.
Anouska Hempel
I work in colour sometimes, but I guess the images I most connect to, historically speaking, are in black and white. I see more in black and white – I like the abstraction of it.
Mary Ellen Mark
Historically, the judicial branch has often been the sole protector of the rights of minority groups against the will of the popular majority.
Diane Watson
We’re very historically tried and true when it comes to our albums. We pick the best songs; we get rid of the songs we feel don’t fit on the album, and we don’t work on remixing or remastering albums.
Zacky Vengeance
Narcissism and the Confederate dead cannot be connected logically, or even historically; even were the connection an historical fact, they would not stand connected as art, for no one experiences raw history.
Allen Tate
Historically, in my generation, all of my heroes and heroines have had issues and problems. We all do.
Anita Baker
Generally speaking, historically in this country, the care of a child has been thought of as female business.
Eddie Bernice Johnson
Historically, religion has often proved a more lethal and more divisive force than any secular ideology. It has also often been a more divisive force than race.
Linda Colley
I’m a good uncle, but I’m not a great caretaker. I feel oftentimes pretty selfish within the relationships I have with my siblings and, historically, with what I give back versus what I’ve taken over the years.
Nick Kroll
There have been times when I’ve feared for my own well-being in the great scheme of things because, historically, the track record has not been kind to the guitar players in this band.
Lindsey Buckingham
When I’m feeling frustrated with a story, I have faith that it’s going to come. Also, when I first started writing, I wanted to write the stories that were not in my childhood, to represent people who hadn’t historically been represented in literature.
Jacqueline Woodson
I can only perceive the royal family as an entity historically. I think I know more about the royal family from the Plantagenets in the 14th Century than the modern family.
Naveen Andrews
Historically, Barcelona win La Liga when they win the Champions League.
Ernesto Valverde
Boxing has definitely allowed me to focus on something other than just creating content which I think we’ve seen historically can be so toxic.
Logan Paul
Historically speaking, my actions speak louder than any words.
Kenya Moore
I think that feminists have definitely underestimated the role that women have had historically. I think I would be insecure if I were to be a man; there’s so much pressure on you.
Vivienne Westwood
My party has historically nominated someone who’s a mainstream conservative.
Mitt Romney
Amazon has historically been a bully, and I don’t shop there. But I love Goodreads. For the record.
Edan Lepucki
Caregiving is almost always provided by women, and especially Black and brown women. This work has historically been made invisible, which creates opportunities for the exploitation and poverty wages many of our caregivers face without protection or recourse.
Jamaal Bowman
Creating more characters that represent historically marginalized and historically disenfranchised people in television and film is certainly important.
Asia Kate Dillon
Historically and culturally, New York City and our entire nation simply would not be the same without the infusion of Asian traditions. Whether it is food, art, language or any other facet of cultural life, Asian Americans have made our city and our country stronger and richer.
Nydia Velazquez
Satire has been a sanctuary historically monopolized by progressives, originally used as a discreet tool against Western religious fundamentalism.
Maajid Nawaz
Historically, maritime travelers had to pass around the entire mass of North and South America, including the bottom tip, the tempestuous Cape Horn, which was littered with shipwrecks.
Alan Huffman
Many people on the political left found my work psychologically liberating. They began to say: once you realize that standards emerge historically, then you can see through and discard all the norms to which we have been falsely enslaved.
Stanley Fish
And while national military forces have historically resisted the full participation of women soldiers, female talent has found plenty of scope in revolutionary and terrorist groups around the planet.
Katherine Dunn
Lower oil prices won’t, by themselves, topple the mullahs in Iran. But it’s significant that, historically, when oil prices have been low, Iranian reformers have been ascendant and radicals relatively subdued, and vice versa when prices have been high.
James Surowiecki
Historically, Democrats have shown they are willing to do just about anything to win elections. Republicans must quit taking the high road and fight back with everything we have.
Charlie Kirk
Historically, there has been a bull market in commodities every 20 or 30 years.
Jim Rogers
Historically almost every team I’ve managed has returned from even just a five-day break with improved physical output.
Sam Allardyce
Historically, gold has always been a safe haven against inflation and a safe haven in times of political instability.
John Paulson
Historically, the Republicans have been geniuses at throwing away advantages.
Bob Packwood
The film world is always looking for great source mater

The film world is always looking for great source material, and Broadway has traditionally and historically been a place to go.
Marc Platt
If you look at things historically, Kanye West has really represented the battering ram against political correctness.
Candace Owens
For many of those who had historically supported welfare programs in the broadest sense, it was perfectly reasonable to enact legislation in which poor people were the objects of efforts to assist them.
Barney Frank
The U.S. has historically been the world’s largest contributor to climate change.
Michael Franti
Historically, Alaska is a place that has attracted those fed up with conventionality.
Bill O’Reilly
Historically, terrorism falls in a category different from crimes that concern a criminal court judge.
Jurgen Habermas
The United States has long thought of itself as the land of infinite plenty, and historically we did have abundant resources. But now we are gradually exhausting our fisheries, our topsoil, our water. On top of that, we’re coming to the end of world resources.
Jared Diamond
Yes colorism does exist if you look at historically what’s happened as far as crossing over to pop radio.
Mathew Knowles
Historically speaking, institutions are slow to change and usually resistant to any sudden moves – churches especially so.
Gene Robinson
We got bigger, much scarier competitors. We ended up with Microsoft, a company with all the money in the world, the way I look at those guys. And IBM, another company that, historically, dwarfed us.
Safra A. Catz
Donald Trump’s crass charms are apparently very limited – historically so, if polling is any indication.
Tom Steyer
Historically, in India, the strange fact was that the equity owner was not taking as much hit as the lender. Therefore, if we restore the first principle of economics, that first the equity owner needs to take the hit and then the lender, we will get a good solution.
Uday Kotak
In the struggle between capital and labor, more often than not capital has won, because the real source of value for most companies has historically been the hard assets that they owned and controlled.
James Surowiecki
Historically, WordPress has been purely focused on the writing side. However, we’re thinking about mobile completely differently, and I think there’s a big opportunity to take the community of creators that loves WordPress and deliver an audience to the amazing things they’re making.
Matt Mullenweg
Presidential scandals have traditionally and historically no effect on the market.
John Layfield
I think the gender norms of emotion are horrendous. Being masculine means showing zero emotions, but having the choice to be angry or depressed. Being female means you are one dimensional – if you show more than that, you are a psycho, hysterical, or historically, a witch.
Petra Collins
Open platforms historically undergo a lot of scrutiny, but there are a lot of advantages to having an open source platform from a security standpoint.
Sundar Pichai
Historically courts in this country have been insulated. We do not look beyond our borders for precedents.
Sandra Day O’Connor
Cinco de Mayo is an important day. The Mexicans had to defend themselves from the French. It is historically significant, but it is not Mexican Independence Day.
Kuno Becker
We tend to think of the House as a less historically significant legislative body than the Senate. There are more representatives than there are senators, they’re up for re-election every two years, and many come and go without having much of an impact.
S.E. Cupp
Sophomore records are historically really difficult.
Karen O
Historically, software for business was seen as unsexy because the products were seen as so poor – they provided such a poor user experience.
Justin Rosenstein
Sanctions historically are quite counterproductive in the sense that if you impose sanctions on your enemy, it tends to strengthen your enemy.
Steve Hanke
What women represent to the male is, historically, a big burden. It’s a lovely dream, but it’s the stuff of literature, art, and everything. Living up to what the male psyche projects onto the female is the stuff of books. You’d need a lot more than an interview to go into it!
Diane Lane
Society historically has a difficult time with the concept of something new and foreign that shakes up our comfortable views, especially if it involves the very volatile question of sexual identity.
Mercedes Ruehl
I think NATO is a Cold War product. I think NATO historically should have shut up shop in 1990 along with the Warsaw Pact; unfortunately, it didn’t.
Jeremy Corbyn
Historically, our culture has not made room for the nuances of humanity. People have not been kept safe: women, people of colour, queer people, transgender people.
Indya Moore
The funny thing about advertising is that it’s not a zero-sum game… Historically, in the digital ad world, pie has gotten larger and it’s possible for everyone to win, and it’s perfectly possible that will continue to be true for quite some time.
Eric Schmidt
A pig has a plow on the end of its nose because it does meaningful work with it. It is built to dig and create soil disturbance, something it can’t do in a concentrated feeding environment. The omnivore has historically been a salvage operation for food scraps around the homestead.
Joel Salatin
My mother has always rooted for the underdog, so to speak. She has always been in support of uplifting historically marginalized and historically disenfranchised people.
Asia Kate Dillon
In an All-Star game the players are having more fun than usual and showing their personalities more than usual. And there are guys in this game – I’m not one of them – who are historically good. First-ballot Hall of Famers.
Sean Doolittle
Key is the question of where do new ideas come from. Hi

Key is the question of where do new ideas come from. Historically, four places: government labs, big corporations, startup companies, and research universities.
Nicholas Negroponte
I think historically it’s good for younger people to see where so much influence has come from. If you’re using my mother as a role model it gives women permission to be kooky and wonderful and individual and unique and loyal and independent all at the same time.
Nicole Fosse
I came to trust in Jesus as my Savior after a two-year personal study of the Bible that convinced me that Scripture is free of contradiction and error – doctrinally, historically, and scientifically.
Hugh Ross
Businesses always have competitors nipping at their heels. Historically, cities have not viewed themselves as subject to that same type of competition. But that’s wrong.
Pete Buttigieg
Just to take a couple steps back historically, Korea, as you can see, is located among what we call big countries. And historically we’ve always been the victim of numerous invasions and whatnot.
Lee Myung-bak
If you look historically at the draft at quarterbacks in the top 10, about half of them flame out very quickly.
Joe Thomas
The great thing about the United States and the historically magnetic effect it has had on a lot of people like me is its generosity, to put it simply.
Christopher Hitchens
I came out of retirement to run a start-up. Historically, I seldom used all of my vacation time, and the last sick day I took was in 1992. I am a sick puppy.
Maynard Webb
We’ve evolved from sitting back on our tripods and shooting wildlife films like they have been shot historically, which doesn’t work for us.
Steve Irwin
To play this iconic character from this historically wonderful series of books – who wouldn’t take that opportunity and be happy about it? I’m happy to be Hodor forever.
Kristian Nairn
If you go back in time and look at a map of all of the television markets where wrestling was most popular, historically, the deepest concentrations of those markets were in the northeast.
Eric Bischoff
Historically, we’ve attached a lot of shame to women and their bodies – probably since biblical times. It’s a way that patriarchal societies have perpetuated.
Marielle Heller
It’s just about asking why. We as cooks historically have been very, very technically proficient but not technically informed as to why we do what we do. Modernist cuisine is about that knowledge.
Wylie Dufresne
Historically, Democrats have been far more united than Republicans when it comes to policy, ideology and public debate.
Katie Pavlich
Federal support for Morristown National Historic Park and the inclusion of additional lands present a unique opportunity for our government to express its commitment to preserving our past. Failing to do so may allow these historically important lands to go unprotected.
Rodney Frelinghuysen
This is hard to admit, but historically, I haven’t worn sunscreen. I know – not good.
Emily Weiss
I’ve never been in love with fashion, actually; trends and catwalks don’t interest me. I love clothes; I love them historically and currently. They represent a spirit of the times and the zeitgeist.
Tim Walker
Historically, opposition to immigration in the United States has been racially and religiously motivated in the ugliest, nastiest way possible.
Grover Norquist
The trouble is not that schools don’t work; they do. They’re excellent machines for achieving historically accepted purposes. In suburban schools are children of the rich, who grow up to privilege and anesthetic oblivion to pain – and who then use the servants produced by ghetto schools.
Jonathan Kozol
The work that I engage with, whether it’s self-generated or collaborative, is uplifting and supporting historically marginalized and disenfranchised people, because when I uplift up those groups, I’m uplifting myself and supporting myself – it works out in that way.
Asia Kate Dillon
Historically I’ve been really good in fourth quarters actually.
Evan Fournier
More and more political analysts and weak-kneed politicians are advising the historically pro-life Republican Party to abandon its pro-life stance for political gain. My first response is that if you cannot trust a party on the value of defending human life, how can you trust it on issues like marginal tax rates?
Gary Bauer
The strength of the dollar has historically been tied to the strength of the U.S. economy and the faith that investors have in doing business in America.
Steve Mnuchin
Historically the director has been the key creative element in a film and we must maintain that. We must protect that, in spite of the fact that there is new technology that’s continually trying to erode that.
John Frankenheimer
Comics and music have historically had a pretty dicey relationship.
Cliff Chiang
I think most Americans probably believe that our relationship with Japan began in 1941. In fact, obviously, it began in 1854 when Commodore Perry sailed into Yokohama harbor and threatened to burn it down unless they would open up to trade with us. The imperial impulse was first ours historically.
Edward Zwick
Republicans were historically the party ever-expanding freedom to disenfranchised minorities, from newly liberated slaves to giving women the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony was a Republican.
Margaret Hoover
The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home.
James Madison
Meaning is socially, historically, and rhetorically constructed.
Clifford Geertz
Historically, there is a presumption that the legitimate police powers of the states are not to be pre-empted by federal law unless Congress has made that purpose clear.
Asa Hutchinson
Historically marginalised people – by gender, race or nationality – aren’t willing to be silent any longer on the crimes of the past and the continuing misrepresentations of historians.
Dawn Foster
Historically, defense spending cuts have preceded incre

Historically, defense spending cuts have preceded increased international turmoil as America’s global enemies sense a failure of will.
Ben Shapiro
