Jay Parini
Feminism is for all women and girls, not a privileged few or one ethnicity, religion, age, sexual preference, ability, region or hemisphere.
Robin Morgan
The attacks on the Paris Metro in the 1990s were committed by members of the local Muslim community, immigrants from the Maghreb region of North Africa.
Otto Schily
The North Country of New York is a region steeped in rich military tradition. Our corner of this country stands out for the remarkable tradition of brave men and women putting themselves in harm’s way for our nation.
Elise Stefanik
A stable, prosperous and peaceful Ukraine is in the interests of everyone in the region.
David Lidington
The work of the Energy Subcommittee of the Science, Space and Technology Committee is critical to our region.
Conor Lamb
Where I work, in the Arab region, people are busy taking up Western innovations and changing them into things which are neither conventionally Western, nor are they traditionally Islamic.
Shereen El Feki
To keep our region’s economy strong, we need to make sure Central Virginia students and workers receive the training required to remain competitive and successful.
Abigail Spanberger
It’s never happened in history that every region in the world could affect every other region simultaneously. The Roman empire and the Chinese empire didn’t know much about each other and had no means of interacting. Now we have every continent able to reach every other.
Henry Kissinger
Biryani is a layered rice dish spotted throughout the M

Biryani is a layered rice dish spotted throughout the Middle East and South Asia in countless variations depending on the region.
Sohla El-Waylly
A $1.7 billion average increase in electricity costs is estimated to result in a $1.3 billion decrease in personal income and a loss of 13,000 more jobs in the region.
Greg Walden
Peace in the Middle East is of prime importance to the Philippines, due to the presence of around 2 million of our countrymen working in that region.
Benigno Aquino III
My heart goes out to the brave citizens of Syria, who each day risk and even sacrifice their lives to achieve freedom from a murderous regime. We in Israel welcome the historic struggle to forge democratic, peace-loving governments in our region.
Shimon Peres
Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process.
Nancy Pelosi
Venezuelans have a long history. So we are able to listen to each other, to talk to each other. From here were born the liberators of the region, and they said before and after that process we have a culture of political action. We are not in despair. That’s the image broadcast to abroad.
Nicolas Maduro
I was born in New Jersey, but it doesn’t sound like I’m from a certain region.
Wesley Schultz
Such problems are not solved in one day but there is a great step toward peace and security in the region.
Paul Kagame
The Pacific had great hope that when the former President Mitered decided to halt nuclear testing, we had put behind us the issue of nuclear states testing their weapons in our Pacific region.
Jenny Shipley
Those of us who actually were working in the region at the time will point out how strongly committed we were to supporting the democratic process and encouraging elections, in spite of the fact that a war was going on in several of these countries.
John Negroponte
In this day and age, the U.S. and Europe do not have the luxury of focusing solely on a single region.
Susan Rice
I come from a family with a long tradition in shoemaking, and I still live in a region famous for its shoemakers. It is getting harder and harder to find skilled workers. There are no professional training institutes, so we have to train our own employees. And an apprenticeship takes three years.
Diego Della Valle
Everybody wants to see Ukraine – one of the largest countries in Europe – stable with a stable economic situation, because instability in Ukraine can bring instability in the whole region.
Vitali Klitschko
How will decent people in the region ever believe in peace if Arab terrorists interpret every gesture of peace as a display of weakness and then act accordingly?
Tom Lantos
There was a time in the mid-1950s when the Philippines was in the same league as Japan economically and academically. Fifty years down the road, and we are almost dead last in the ASEAN region.
Lucio Tan
While everyone knows that London is both big and overprivileged when it comes to spending, the scale of its dominance is poorly understood. London is not just the biggest city in the UK, it is the biggest city in western Europe. It is also the richest region.
David Olusoga
I think of the world as geographical regions, and it excites me to think about the opportunity that Europe can have if we consider it to be the 500-million-people region that it is.
Frans van Houten
The entire world is now a rival to Silicon Valley. No country, state, region, nor city has a lock on innovation in technology anymore.
Fred Wilson
Investors avoid investing in a region where some elements cause political instability by their so-called movements.
Nawaz Sharif
Economically, the business development of the greater Hyderabad region has made the city integral to the state.
Sanjaya Baru
Folk tales are the most authentic way of understanding a region, its legend and people.
Shweta Basu Prasad
Biography is a very definite region bounded on the north by history, on the south by fiction, on the east by obituary, and on the west by tedium.
Philip Guedalla
Ultimately, it’s not our responsibility to turn Afghanistan into a 21st-century, vibrant, economic, liberal democracy with a little L. Our responsibility is to keep Americans safe, to make sure we don’t have a failed state in a region. It’s not our responsibility to reconstruct Afghanistan.
Martha McSally
I am very wanted in my homeland. I am part of the scenery, part of the region. I resemble it.
Ayman Odeh
I like to add props to render the specificities of place – paintings, food, clothing, signs, infrastructure, music, sayings and slang particular to the region and particular to the character. And props shouldn’t just sit there; they should get used.
Kaui Hart Hemmings
South America’s most populous country, Brazil, is also emerging as one of the region’s most social-media savvy.
Ryan Holmes
The longer a region is in contact with modern civilization, the higher the degree to which the society in the region is civilized.
Ko Wen-je
Whatever I have been doing in regional cinema, is restricted to the region.
Wamiqa Gabbi
The Congressional Art Competition encourages and cultivates the ingenuity and creativity of young people in our region.
Conor Lamb
The year 2013 has been very difficult, with a lot of headwinds in almost every region and every business.
Baba Kalyani
In my senior year of high school, I read an article in ‘Newsweek’ about child soldiers in Sierra Leone. I felt a sense of shock – this was happening in the region where I’m from, and people don’t know about it. I wanted to understand.
Uzodinma Iweala
A North Korea that has the capability to use a nuclear

A North Korea that has the capability to use a nuclear weapon that can reach an American city or those of an ally poses a grave challenge as the U.S. seeks to preserve peace and stability in the region.
Lois Frankel
The East-West Center directly supports the U.S. rebalance to the Asia Pacific through cooperative study, research, and dialogue with countries in the region.
Brian Schatz
The main and the biggest issue is the formation of Telangana state, for which the people of this region have been fighting for the last 50 years. We want Telangana for the sake of justice. We want to get our due share in water and other resources of this region.
Vijayashanti
I can’t think of any other region in the world which is such a vast source of fossils.
Richard Leakey
In days gone by, scientists would speak solemnly about our solar system’s ‘habitable zone’ – a theoretical region extending from Venus to Mars, but perhaps not encompassing either, where a planet would be the right temperature to have liquid water on its surface.
Seth Shostak
What we need is a program in South Jersey that allows local veterans to go to doctor’s offices and hospitals here in our region to get treatment.
Jeff Van Drew
Our research is so complex that the resources of a single region of the world are no longer enough – both intellectually and economically, it must be a global effort.
Fabiola Gianotti
It is no exaggeration to say that Syria holds the key for nearly all of America’s foreign policy goals in the Middle East. As Syria goes, so goes the region.
Reza Aslan
Salmon recovery in the Northwest is a complex issue and requires a comprehensive regionwide effort. Dam removal is not the answer. It would have a devastating impact on our region’s energy and transportation infrastructure and may do little to even help salmon listed as threatened or endangered.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
It now seems certain that the amino acid sequence of any protein is determined by the sequence of bases in some region of a particular nucleic acid molecule.
Francis Crick
To reverse the decline of our public transit system and end the transportation disparities that divide our city and region, we must channel calls for change into changed governance.
Michelle Wu
Barge traffic on the Mississippi River represents the most efficient, most cost-effective, most environmentally sound means of transporting commodity goods from this region of the country to market.
Leonard Boswell
Personally, I believe in self-determination, but in the context of one South Africa – so that my self-determination is based in this region, and with my people.
Mangosuthu Buthelezi
If you challenge the constitution and if you challenge the borders of Iraq and the borders of the region, this is a public invitation to the countries in the region to violate Iraqi borders as well, which is a very dangerous escalation.
Haider al-Abadi
We’ll free every slave in every town and region. Can anybody get a bigger army than that?
Dalton Trumbo
Meth is a major problem not only in our urban areas, but in most of the rural areas of Colorado. No region has been immune from this scourge and it is getting larger.
Ken Salazar
The atoms become like a moth, seeking out the region of higher laser intensity.
Steven Chu
The Iranian regime suppresses its own people as well as others in the region. It prevents peace by sponsoring terror globally. With the ultimate weapon that it is deceptively developing, the regime aims to gain hegemony over the entire Middle East and hold the world’s economy hostage.
Shimon Peres
The growth of markets in the region also provides opportunities for home-grown entities – whether established brand names like DBS, Singtel and Keppel Corporation, or SMEs – to establish and grow their presence in the region.
Tony Tan
It doesn’t matter what the colour of your skin is, your sexual preference, the region where you were born, your gender. We’re all equal… We can’t take certain minorities and think they have super powers and are different from the others.
Jair Bolsonaro
Every nation in every region now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.
George W. Bush
A nuclear-weapons armed Iran is not in anyone’s human-rights interests. That is a direct threat to the lives and the livelihoods and the stability not only of the region but beyond.
Hillary Clinton
On the night of June 30, 1990, a minibus in which I was travelling was involved in a head-on collision on a road near Latina, in the region of Lazio, near Rome.
Harry Redknapp
It is a keen measure of the fall of American influence in the region when a Palestinian leader responds to intense American pressure to go to the negotiating table by waiting to see if Arab League foreign ministers will let him take that step.
Elliott Abrams
Our North East region will prosper when it is better connected to South East Asia, and when the North East becomes our bridge to South East Asia, we will be closer to realising our hopes for India and ASEAN ties.
Sushma Swaraj
Each industry in a region should develop a playbook that expands and details the strategy and tactics of how to build a scalable startup.
Steve Blank
I, along with my sisters Neeti and Mukti, did my schooling from BITS Pilani in the Shekhawati region. So, I am very well aware of Rajasthan, its culture, life, heritage, music, food and everything it is famous for. And it’s no exaggeration to say that Rajasthan gave me the best childhood memories.
Shakti Mohan
The U.N. Population Fund has a maternal health program in some Cameroon hospitals, but it doesn’t operate in this region. It’s difficult to expand, because President Bush has cut funding.
Nicholas Kristof
Israel is a lighthouse and the only democracy in a dark and tyrannical region. It’s part of us, of our European identity.
Geert Wilders
My vision for Western Kentucky’s economy is to turn the region into a world leader in agritech.
Andy Beshear
This is a coca leaf. This is not cocaine. This represents the culture of indigenous people of the Andean region.
Evo Morales
Europe today is the most secular region in the world. E

Europe today is the most secular region in the world. Europe is the only region in the world experiencing population decline. Wherever you turn today the more religious the community, the larger on average are their families.
Jonathan Sacks
As the crisis in Syria grows and the humanitarian tragedy becomes more clear, I appreciated Prime Minister Netanyahu’s perspective on the changes and volatility in the region.
Rob Portman
I studied fine arts and architecture, but I decided to move into movie design because I grew up in a small town in the Marche region and spent a lot of time after school in the movie theater.
Dante Ferretti
I am firmly convinced that, in future years, China and India will join hands in playing a more active role in maintaining peace and stability in the region and the world at large and make due contribution to the cause of human progress and development.
Li Peng
By and large, women in New Zealand are fortunate compared with some other countries, including many in our own region. But there is still progress to be made.
Jenny Shipley
Now it is time to make historic reassessments in order to transform our region into one of stability, freedom, prosperity, cultural revival and co-existence. In this new regional order there should be less violence and fewer barriers between countries, societies and sects.
Ahmet Davutoglu
Freedom of navigation through international waterways is critical to the international community and to nations in the region, including Iran.
John C. Stennis
The solar probe is going to a region of space that has never been explored before. It’s very exciting that we’ll finally get a look. One would like to have some more detailed measurements of what’s going on in the solar wind. I’m sure that there will be some surprises. There always are.
Eugene Parker
The majority of Taiwan people cannot accept Taiwan becoming a second Hong Kong, nor can we accept Taiwan becoming a local government of the People’s Republic of China or a Special Administrative Region of China.
Chen Shui-bian
I did go into the Amazonian region of Brazil. They have prehistoric river fish that weigh in at around 600 pounds, which you don’t see anywhere else. And foods that cannot be exported or even found in other parts of Brazil.
Anthony Bourdain
My policy was just to give good things for sports in my region.
Sergei Bubka
This is my first visit to Africa, a region where President Bush has voiced a deep passion for fostering and encouraging economic development, investment and trade.
Donald Evans
I think we learned a lesson and paid a bitter price when we put troops on the ground on a long-term basis in Iraq and Afghanistan. Let us support a homegrown, indigenous, and locally inspired effort to bring stability to the region.
Dick Durbin
The U.S. might have diminished al-Qaeda’s capabilities in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan, but it has not diminished the threat from radical Islamist terrorists as a whole.
Pete Hoekstra
For a long time, I didn’t think I wanted to live in the Ozarks or write about the region. It seemed to be a sure recipe for obscurity, and to be obscure was not my conscious ambition.
Daniel Woodrell
One of the biggest challenges for the MENA region is unemployment coupled with high population growth rates. The World Bank is committed to supporting infrastructure projects that will help with job creation across the region.
Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair
From time to time, the irresponsible acts of the Cuban government remind us that this is far more than about the freedom of one country, but it really is about the stability and security of the region and the national security interests of the United States.
Mel Martinez
I believe that Israel and the U.S.-Israel relationship are, and should be, key considerations in shaping U.S. policy in the Middle East. Americans with roots or interests in the region should be involved in advocacy and discussions of public policy concerning the region.
Keith Ellison
We still believe that if the Russian Federation and the United States bring their minds together, we can develop a common system which would be efficient in protecting the Euro-Atlantic region from threats coming outside this region.
Sergei Lavrov
Egypt has always been critical to the stability of the Middle East pertaining to Israel. We need them with us for continued efforts to maintain peace in the region.
Keith Kellogg
You cannot exploit the advantages of getting above the atmosphere unless you are able to get up there reasonably large-sized telescopes and unless you are able to keep these telescopes pointing at one region of the sky for long periods of time to a high degree of accuracy.
Nancy Roman
I’m from Connecticut, and we don’t have any dialects. Well, I don’t think we have any dialects, and yeah, it’s very complex. That Rhode Island/Massachusetts New England region is arguably the hardest dialect to nail.
Seth MacFarlane
I have introduced legislation – with other senators from both parties, like Bob Corker and Bob Menendez and Joe Manchin – called the ‘Countering the Iranian Threats Act’, specifically to clamp down on a lot of Iran’s nefarious activity throughout the region.
Tom Cotton
My priority will remain supporting those courageous individuals and organizations, among both Israelis and Palestinians, committed to bringing peaceful coexistence to the region.
Ayanna Pressley
Look at what the Omar of Qatar is doing, for example – the King of Morocco, Jordan, Bahrain. There are reform movements taking place, efforts to broaden the political participation of the populations of the region.
Frank Carlucci
Iran is Iran. It has a regime that is destabilized in the region, that is spreading terror.
Ron Johnson
A real possibility exists that we will be forced to confront, contain, and ultimately defeat radicalism and al-Qaeda alone, or at least with far fewer allies in the region than we had before.
Pete Hoekstra
For my part, I make this pledge to all of you: The politics of division, of pitting east against west, urban versus rural, region against region, and people against people will have no place in my Administration.
Ed Rendell
I write about my region, the countryside in which I grew up.
Mo Yan
Beyond Iraq, I am also profoundly worried about the continuing meltdown of Syria, which is a geopolitical Chernobyl. Until it is capped, it is going to continue to spew radioactive instability and extremist ideology over the entire region.
David Petraeus
Despite the ethnic diversity within each nation, the social fabric of the region by and large is one.
Bashar al-Assad
The diversity of Europe is its strength. But for a sing

The diversity of Europe is its strength. But for a single currency to work, over a region with enormous economic and political diversity, is not easy.
Joseph Stiglitz
An actor is here to perform. For example, if a character is a Punjabi or a Bihari, and the actor is not, doesn’t mean we have to cast an actor from that region. If an actor can perform, they can portray anyone because an actor is here to try different roles.
Sunny Singh
For one country is different from another; its earth is different, as are its stones, wines, bread, meat, and everything that grows and thrives in a specific region.
Paracelsus
You can have an epidemic in a state. You can have it in a region. You can have it in a country where the critical level of disease passes a certain threshold, and we call that an ‘epidemic threshold.’
Anthony Fauci
Before the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, Jewish leaders were intent on discovering and laying claim to their heritage in the region. They took an intense interest in archaeology, embarking on quests to bring significant items of Judaica to Palestine.
Ronen Bergman
As soon as we step beyond the established boundaries of pure thermodynamic theory, we enter a trackless region confronting us with obstacles which even the most astute of us are almost at a loss to tackle.
Wilhelm Wien
If we don’t set the rules for commerce in the Asia-Pacific region, China will.
William M. Daley
We’ve lost sight of our role in the region and our view of our colleagues in the region.
John Hewson
I wanted to use my writing skills to bring attention to the overwhelming needs of the Gulf coast region.
Kirby Larson
Southeast Asia is now a region full of hope because of the freedoms America has helped foster.
Khaleda Zia
Our policies toward Iraq simply are to protect the region and to protect Iraq’s people and neighbors.
Condoleezza Rice
