It's important to recognise that opposing racism isn't

Safra A. Catz
When I started on the London circuit in 1989, nationwide there were about 150 to 200 people that were what you could call alternative comedians – that weren’t club comics.

I did play with Dr. Strangely Strange a couple of years ago – that difficult third album, ‘Alternative Medicine,’ 1997. It was great to see them all. They’re very special people and they were very good to me in Dublin in the 1960s.
Gary Moore
I hope to have more than one main weapon. I have the Phenomenal Forearm as we’re calling it now, the Calf Crusher – the Styles Clash is still available. I like to have a lot of alternative moves to hit people with, and whatever seems to work is what I’ll go with.
A.J. Styles
You’ve probably seen that any visible Palestinian-American woman who is at the forefront of any social-justice movement is an immediate target of the right wing and right-wing Zionists.

Linda Sarsour

Winston Churchill
After the rise of Thatcherism, the smashing of the trad

After the rise of Thatcherism, the smashing of the trade unions, and the post-cold war sense that any alternative to free-market capitalism was permanently discredited, you can see why the wealthy felt drunk on the sense of eternal victory.
Owen Jones
We created Pure Flix to make uplifting and inspiring content on a consistent, ongoing basis, so audiences would truly have an alternative to what Hollywood puts out. Pure Flix produces faith and family films, so the audience is the entire family.

Ross Douthat
A book I often refer to by Naomi Klein is called ‘No Is Not Enough’. It’s not enough to be against something. You have to actually be for something. A better alternative. For me, that’s about transformation.
Jo Swinson
Part of what I have to represent is an alternative to this perverted fashion industry concept of what beauty is.
Lydia Lunch

Irving Kirsch
A matter that seems to be very clear in terms of the alternative view, is what do you expect to happen in Africa with regard to immune systems, where people are poor, subject to repeat infections and all of that. Surely you would expect their immune systems to collapse.
Thabo Mbeki
Expanding access to decent work opportunities is the most effective way to increase labor-market participation, lift people out of poverty, reduce inequality, and drive economic growth.

Laurence Housman
I’m a big believer in puking out all your thoughts in a single sitting and getting some version of the work down, because the alternative just prolongs the agony. The first draft is hideous and ajskdlkdfksjdfslfjk, but it’s just a map for where the big blocks go.

Iwan Rheon
There’s no doubt that there’s a public backlash against the way campaign money is raised, but I don’t think the only alternative is to elect people with money.

It is not history, theology or mythology that interest me. It is the fact that history, theology or mythology could have alternative interpretations or explanations. I try to connect the dots between the past and the present.

I’ve always thought of beauty therapy, ‘alternative’ treatments and the like as the female equivalent of brothels – for essentially self-deceiving people who feel a bit hollow and have to pay to be touched.
Julie Burchill
I had a newspaper in Flint, Michigan called the ‘Flint Voice,’ and so it was a, you know, underground, alternative newspaper that I edited and put out for about ten years.
Michael Moore
It was pretty evident, I think, the direction the country was going, and that’s why I think Donald Trump offered such a clear alternative to that from Hillary Clinton.
Steve Bannon
Thank you for reminding Canada that I’m a disappointment to them. I like hockey, I love it, but I’m not an avid hockey – let’s face it, true Canadian – fan. I’ve always been more into snowboarding and skateboarding and sort of the alternative sports, I’m not crazy about hockey – but love it!
Dustin Milligan
The whole notion of an alternative truth is a paradox. How can you have an alternative to truth?
Steven Wilson
YouTube opened up the types of voices and alternative ways of viewing ourselves that would never have been greenlit by a Hollywood studio.
Eugene Lee Yang
Exercise is done against one’s wishes and maintained only because the alternative is worse.
George A. Sheehan
The really good doctors out there are real-life heroes. Playing one on TV is a cheaper alternative and certainly satisfies what is left of my medical ambitions.
Jason O’Mara
I do like beer, but lately I’ve started drinking non-alcoholic beer and I like the taste of it and I don’t get the alcohol, so that’s a good alternative also.
Mike Ditka
The entire country is rallying behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and there is no alternative to Modiji.
Yogi Adityanath
Comics shouldn't be 'tools' for anyone's agenda except

Comics shouldn’t be ‘tools’ for anyone’s agenda except for the characters. And I am speaking only of super hero action comics. I love many of the alternative comics that are like journalistic stories. Documentary comics, a mix of reportage and fiction. Those are just great.
Ann Nocenti
I grew up with my stepfather in Brighton, but I did spend a lot of time with my natural father, and I was loved by both, so I suppose the advantage of this was that I wasn’t bound by one set of experiences; I always had an alternative.
Natascha McElhone
The notion of artistic responsibility begs questions with no satisfactory conclusions, the most inevitable and ineffectual being that we should just keep thinking and talking about it, given that the alternative – a governmental body monitoring the movies we make and see – is unacceptable.
Steve Erickson
It’s no fun to be a struggling young actor. It’s a desperate thing, no way to be happy. If you have any alternative, you should take it.
Tommy Lee Jones
A lot of people get into alternative music as part of their identity. It’s something that isn’t the mainstream, that their brothers and sisters don’t know about, and that their parents don’t like. It’s something they can have as their own.
Chris Cornell
I actually think the civil service, who are the malignancy at the heart of public life, have consciously prevented, talked ministers out of, made it difficult regulatory-wise, to allow more pressure on alternative energy sources to grow.
Ken Livingstone
We are launching a campaign called Wind, Not War, which is about the alternatives to a fossil-fuels-based economy and looking at wind, an alternative energy, as key to that in terms of issues of global climate change as well as issues of democracy.
Winona LaDuke
The day Obama got into office, rap was less important because Obama gave kids an alternative. But will rap ever go away? No. There will always be a need for poets.
Rent-to-own provides a vital service to millions of Americans. It is also critical for African-Americans, Latinos and other minorities to have access to alternative products and services, such as rent-to-own.
William Lacy Clay, Jr.
Stuffed cherry tomatoes are satisfying without being filling and make a great alternative to bread-based starters. You can assemble these appetizers ahead of time and refrigerate them until you’re ready to serve.
Alex Guarnaschelli
The House Foreign Affairs Committee can and should become the principal institution in Washington exercising foreign policy oversight and serving as an alternative voice for America to the world. I hope to make a significant contribution in that effort.
Tom Malinowski
The Rise credo is about accepting no limits, alternative thinking, and driving positive change – the three pillars.
Anand Mahindra
Back in the day, I was definitely a child of alternative radio.
Education must, be not only a transmission of culture but also a provider of alternative views of the world and a strengthener of the will to explore them.
Jerome Bruner
In many cases, water stress is more about politics, economics, behaviour and governance than absolute water scarcity. Better planning is needed, to allocate water where societal need is greatest, and to allow trade-offs between alternative uses.
Ian Goldin
Let us agree here today to adopt among ourselves a simple and unwritten rule. We will not rise to criticize someone else’s idea unless we are prepared to offer an alternative idea of our own.
Marco Rubio
I listen to everything: hip hop, R&B, alternative, pop. I love JCole, so I’m always listening to him. Kendrick and Drake.
Dexter Darden
Fitting a walk into a busy life can be challenging, so I suggest walking rather driving to work or to run errands as often as you can – in other words, think of walking as alternative transportation.
Andrew Weil
Basically, everything I try to do is to present an alternative to what somebody else is doing.
Matt Groening
It’s a difficult business, creating a new, alternative civilization.
David Graeber
I just got exposed to electronica, and I really liked it. I am also good with alternative rock. I like Lana Del Rey, Adele, Dido, Jack Johnson, and I love the Beatles and the Beach Boys.
Anushka Sharma
My dad took me to the skate park every single weekend to see alternative bands.
Julien Baker
Alternative cartoonists have to rely on comic book stores to get their stuff in the hands of readers.
Jim Woodring
I was too young to really remember it, but at one time, my family lived in Hawaii and Fiji because my parents wanted us to be exposed to different cultures and alternative lifestyles.
Nyjah Huston
Some alternative medicines work when the instructions are followed. But I always recommend seeing a medical professional.
Paul Nassif
For decades, there was no alternative to the two Dravidian parties – the DMK and the AIADMK.
Tamilisai Soundararajan
I listen to all those kinds of music, from classic soul to hip-hop to Brazilian music to, you know, jazz to indie to alternative. So whatever. I listen to all if it. Classic rock and classic pop, all of that.
John Legend
I love Nirvana, Joy Division, and New Order – older alternative, I guess.
Finn Wolfhard
I really loved the hardcore alternative vibe Prince had on ‘Dirty Mind.’
Fantastic Negrito
Chronically insecure people easily lose their altruism, tolerance, and respect for non-conformity. If they have no alternative on offer, they can be led to attribute their plight to strangers in their midst.
Guy Standing
A person like Donald Trump, who has said what he’s said about Muslims, Mexicans, women, George Bush, John McCain – a person like that should not be the nominee of our party or be the president, and I will campaign for an alternative to Donald Trump until that avenue is no longer open.
Mitt Romney
I always vaguely knew I wanted to perform, but I haven'

I always vaguely knew I wanted to perform, but I haven’t got the greatest singing voice and my dancing isn’t up to scratch. Acting was really the only alternative. My parents have been really supportive throughout.
Ruth Wilson
I think flag football is a great alternative, and it’s a great game in its own right. It’s a wonderful alternative. You can develop all of the skills and athleticism and glean the lessons you can from contact football through playing flag.
Chris Borland
I did alternative rock before. That’s why my style is the way it is now.
Trippie Redd
Like many students, I found the drudgery of real experiments and the slowness of progress a complete shock, and at my low points I contemplated other alternative careers including study of the philosophy or sociology of science.
Paul Nurse
‘Alternative facts’ is really one of the better things that’s come out in a long time. ‘Alternative facts?’ It’s brilliant! Really? Alternative facts? There are two different realities?
Free is not an alternative. My company did not turn a profit last year.
Howard Stringer
Most allopathic doctors think practitioners of alternative medicine are all quacks. They’re not. Often they’re sharp people who think differently about disease.
Mehmet Oz
Thanks to former President George W. Bush – remember the compassionate conservative? – I have a good name for the fundamental principle that should guide the Democratic alternative: compassionate deficit reduction.
Christina Romer
Whereas economic man maximises, selects the best alternative from among all those available to him, his cousin, administrative man, satisfices, looks for a course of action that is satisfactory or ‘good enough’.
Herbert A. Simon
We’re living in a different world now in terms of employee needs, and companies have to offer alternative methods for getting the work done. Even under the most difficult circumstances you can have creative flexibility.
Anne M. Mulcahy
Some people don’t like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster.
Elon Musk
Email is the lowest common denominator. It’s the way you get communications from one person to another. There isn’t really an alternative. Sometimes people will have Facebook messenger turned on, but 99 percent of the time, if you’re sending a message to a human you don’t know well, you’re using email.
Stewart Butterfield
What does it mean to truly believe in America? To wave a flag? Or to struggle toward a more searching alternative to the shallowness of the flag-wavers – to criticize, to interrogate, to analyze, to dissent?
Rick Perlstein
Creating a healthier alternative to barbecue sauce isn’t easy. The extreme range of flavors, from piercing vinegar to salty to sweet to barely perceptible umami, isn’t easy to recreate.
Chris Morocco
Being criticized in the media is a good problem to have – most of the time. It means you’re doing something that is at least interesting or cool or crazy enough to be noticed. It might not always feel good, but it’s usually better than the alternative of obscurity.
Ryan Holiday
Mind-body medicine should not be an ‘alternative,’ nor should complementary and integrative medicine be something doctors are not exposed to during their training.
Bernie Siegel
There is no reason why cricket shouldn’t be the number one alternative to football. And at a time when there are obvious divisions in society, cricket has a great role to play in bringing people together from all sorts of diverse backgrounds and faiths.
Andrew Strauss
I end up pleading my case to alternative programmers – you’re telling me that my music is too dark for pop, too pop for alternative, and urban radio won’t touch it – so we have a record that doesn’t fit in. And what is more alternative than that?
I don’t believe that we should limit waterboarding – or, quite frankly, any other alternative torture technique – if it means saving Americans’ lives.
Aaron Schock
We come from a more alternative rock band background, and it’s interesting to see the things that people think we should or shouldn’t do since our music is a little bit poppier.
Lauren Mayberry
At no time did I suggest that violence is justice, and I can’t believe I even have to explain that. But the alternative is letting someone like Kayleigh McEnany misquote and manipulate what you say. McEnany, who repeatedly lies to the American people.
Brianna Keilar
There are many reasons why novelists write, but they all have one thing in common – a need to create an alternative world.
John Fowles
I was going out dancing in clubs around New York, and that helped create ‘Supermassive Black Hole.’ Franz Ferdinand would have done it very well with that dance-type beat going on mixed with alternative guitar, and I’ve always wanted to find that.
Matt Bellamy
The migratory phenomenon exists, and Europe will have to face it together. The only alternative is a ‘beggar-thy-neighbor’ solution, in which countries try to load the problem off on their neighbors.
Paolo Gentiloni
A mutation can create an alternative form of a phenomenon – a phenotype or trait – and we can learn a lot by seeing this alternative state. Once I saw a mouse with no eyelids. It simply had a membrane over the eyes. I found it fascinating that there is a single gene required for eyelids to develop.
Bruce Beutler
Our party is the upcoming alternative force in Tamil Nadu and both the ruling AIADMK and DMK are corrupt and both parties used money power to woo voters during Srirangam bypolls.
Tamilisai Soundararajan
I forget that I can play guitar and that I can perform very well. It’s like having an alternative life.
Tom Misch
Actors need to be known for having done something, because the alternative isn’t so good.
John de Lancie
It is important that the United States move with all deliberate speed to develop and get into usage alternative fuels that will allow us to end our dependence on foreign oil.
Virgil Goode
It’s American Alternative radio stations that bug me. We’re considered Alternative, but don’t expect us to be played next to Blink 182 and Offspring. We’re hardly of that generation.
Thurston Moore
And you see many people just turning away from these channels of mass media, and they’re just turning in to alternative providers, because they just see what’s happening.
Sibel Edmonds
Well, I've seen a bunch of acupuncturists and one of my

Well, I’ve seen a bunch of acupuncturists and one of my sister-in-laws is an herbalist. So I know a lot about alternative medicine. I don’t know a lot about the practice but I know about the world.
Tim Daly
With interest rates rising, gold doesn’t pay an interest rate, but every other currency – it becomes not only less important to hold gold as an alternative, but more expensive to hold it as an insurance policy and so that will be a burden on the price of gold.
Lloyd Blankfein
I’m pleased that some economists and sociologists are beginning to talk about, for example, alternative measures of human well-being – alternative, that is, to GDP, on which the world runs.
John Sulston
To be very honest, I never thought I would graduate from high school. I got very lucky to get into an alternative high school, which really saved my butt.
Langhorne Slim
In the past I have defended the right of the IRA to engage in armed struggle. I did so because there was no alternative for those who would not bend the knee, or turn a blind eye to oppression, or for those who wanted a national republic.
Gerry Adams
The popularity of ‘2 Dope Queens’ just showed there was like a hunger for new stories because we have alternative comics on our show that wouldn’t normally be featured on, like, a white guy’s comedy show.
Jessica Williams
Film can do lots of things: It can produce alternative ideas, ask questions, just record the reality of what’s happening, it can analyze what’s happening. Of course, most commercial films are controlled by big corporations who have an interest in not doing those films.
Ken Loach
You face the reality, whether it’s hopeful or hopeless. What’s your alternative? To lie down and die?
Raoul Peck
There is an alternative to war. It has been with us forever.
Sargent Shriver
Because I was poor I had one special advantage. When you are poor, and basic survival is your concern, you have no alternative but to be an entrepreneur. You must take action to survive just as you must take action to seize an opportunity.
Naveen Jain
In 1996, Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’ was removed from classrooms after a school board passed a ‘prohibition of alternative lifestyle instruction’ act. Apparently, a young female character disguised as a boy was a danger to the youth of Merrimack, New Hampshire.
Richard LaGravenese
Teaching creationism in science class as an alternative to evolution is inappropriate.
Bill Nye
England has a long history of supporting alternative medicine – maybe it’s because they don’t have such a strong pharmaceutical industry in England, and homeopathy has been taught and promoted there for hundreds of years.
Dasha Zhukova
Let me announce this to the American people tonight one of the best things about this debate, as a Democrat from Massachusetts, I have proposed eliminating, getting rid of the alternative minimum tax.
Richard Neal
We may never be as big as WWE, but the cool thing about TNA is that we are the alternative. So people who get tired and bored with the WWE – I’ve been there, I understand – there’s an alternative and something else to watch.
Jeff Hardy
There are very important and practical issues raised by following this alternative route which says, let’s look to material conditions, to the systems of production, to the needs that human beings have, and to competing alternative solutions to the satisfaction of those needs.
Marvin Harris
When people are desperate or wealthy, they turn to socialism; only when they have no other alternative do they embrace the free market. After all, lies about guaranteed security are far more seductive than lectures about personal responsibility.
Ben Shapiro
Frankly, everyone knows that Iain Duncan Smith is not making the impact we would all like him to be as our leader and is not making the necessary impact to carry credibility with the electorate as the alternative prime minister.
Crispin Blunt
If I’m not the Democratic nominee, I’m gonna get out there and work for whoever the Democratic nominee is, because I believe they will be better than the alternative.
Andrew Gillum
When we’re out touring, we often go to clubs to see people play. The alternative is to go back to the hotel And that’s no good.
John Waite
I have been working for years to promote a responsible energy policy that works to increase energy efficiency and invest in alternative and renewable energy sources.
Lois Capps
I was gaining weight very rapidly and read about the idea of restricting carbohydrates as an alternative to going hungry. I had a big appetite, so that was the only thing I would even consider.
Robert Atkins
I love ‘Seinfeld.’ That was not alternative. You can’t get more in mainstream than that.
Brett Gelman
Here are the facts we confront. No one is against conservation. No one is against alternative fuel sources.
J. D. Hayworth
I don’t know if it’s because I grew up in Beverly or my friends, but I listened to a lot of alternative rock music. I loved Incubus, Weezer and Jimmy Eat World. It almost felt segregated because I loved all of those acts over here, but then I also loved R&B and soul music I grew up with.
Jamila Woods
In my book I specifically discussed the structural nature of injustice and offered Nine Touchstones of Goddess ethics as an alternative to the Ten Commandments of Biblical religion.
Carol P. Christ
Even as we work to develop more sources of petroleum for the United States, we must continue our vigorous pursuit of alternative fuels, so that we can be powered by cleaner, more efficient sources of energy.
Virgil Goode
My dad would play ‘The Blue Album’ a lot, the first Weezer album, and that influenced my alternative indie thing and that’s kind of how I found tons and most of my favorite bands.
Finn Wolfhard
The Weeknd’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ is very experimental. It’s pop meets urban meets indie meets alternative.
Julia Michaels
Blair worshipped Thatcherism, could see little or no wrong in it, believed that that was what the country needed, thought that there was no alternative, regarded it as a legacy that had to be built on rather than rejected.
Martin Jacques
I think people are looking for an alternative to the fast pace of everyday life and entertainment.
Robert Wilson
I do not support a single-payer system; I do support ha

I do not support a single-payer system; I do support having something there, whether it’s an option or not. And we can work with that, but we have to have something to leverage so we can get the insurance company to bring down their prices, and the only way to do that is to have an alternative there.
David Scott
My aim is to project that the BJP is not only an alternative but a better alternative to the Congress.
Sushma Swaraj
The United States will rightfully go on deploring human rights excesses in the Soviet Union. And it is hardly likely Americans will one day espouse the communist ideology. But nowhere does it say we cannot live in peace with the U.S.S.R. In the nuclear age, there is truly no alternative.
Antony Blinken
The L.A Trilogy is a series of three novels starring Ray, a robot detective, and his boss, a computer called Googol. Set in an alternative version of 1960s Los Angeles, each book will be more or less standalone but together will form an overarching story arc with ‘Brisk Money’ as the origin story.
Adam Christopher
Solyndra’s failure isn’t a reason for the government to give up on alternative energy, any more than the failure of during the Internet bubble means that venture capital should steer clear of tech projects.
James Surowiecki
If women will not accept marriage with subjection, nor men proffer it without, there is, there can be, no alternative. The women who will not be ruled must live without marriage. And during this transition period… single women make comfortable and attractive homes for themselves.
Susan B. Anthony
But reducing harmful emissions, abating our dependence on foreign oil and developing alternative renewable energy sources have benefits that go beyond environmental health, they improve personal health, enhance national security and encourage our nation’s economic viability.
Jim Clyburn
I don’t favour ethics classes being an alternative to special religious education classes.
Barry O’Farrell
I know there’s a certain love and affection for the homemade on the Internet, and I’m all for that, too, and I appreciate it in alternative music, and I appreciate it in B-movies and in Sundance, independent films.
Robert Englund
The reason I became an actor was applause and being the center of attention. So, short of that, Twitter is probably a good alternative.
Phil Dunster
I’ve always been interested in alternative family structures.
Grace Chatto
I think I can draw both a mainstream audience and an alternative audience to my shows. I also have the ability to disappoint both.
James Acaster
For vocational workers, their pay should reflect their skills and difficulty of labour. To be skilled in a craft should be accepted as an alternative path.
Tan Cheng Bock
‘The Man in the High Castle’ was not the first alternative history novel, nor even the first Nazis-win-the-war novel, but it is still probably the most influential book in the genre.
Adrian McKinty
A true legislative alternative to ObamaCare would support physician ownership of independent medical practices, and preserve local competition between doctors and choice for patients.
Scott Gottlieb
If it wasn’t for John Peel, there would be no Joy Division and no New Order. He was one of the few people to give bands that played alternative music a chance to get heard, and he continued to be a champion of cutting-edge music throughout his life.
Bernard Sumner
The danger I faced was not accepted as reasonable grounds for deferring my tax payments, as authorities, who despite being told all of this, still chose to pursue action against me, as opposed to finding an alternative solution.
Lauryn Hill
I never drink cow’s milk; I always opt for the soya alternative, and when I eat most dairy products, it tends to be in extremely small doses. However, being a vegetarian means I have to get protein from somewhere, so I do eat eggs and cheese about once a week.
Kate O’Mara
I don’t think I am a workaholic. I prefer to keep busy. It is better than the alternative.
Sebastian Coe
I’m constantly asking for alternative views on most things that come to me.
Paul Wolfowitz
If Romney explains why where we are with Obama is unacceptable, why whither we are tending is even worse – and why his own alternative path forward is superior – then we trust the American people to make the right choice in November.
Bill Kristol
You have to consume Fig Newtons with either milk or an alternative milk product. It’s like a conspiracy with the dairy industry. They’re in cahoots.
It’s high time for a fresh European alternative to enter the market, taking the existing Internet behemoths head on. What the world needs now is a cloud storage service that is not subject to uncontrolled access by intelligence agencies.
Mikko Hypponen
There are some fantastic, brilliant alternative doctors out there.
Hayley Mills
When I’m in front of a crowd, I don’t think ‘Oh, there’s some hard-core metalheads and some alternative fringe types, so we should be okay.’
Gord Downie
Carving out our own role, distinct from America’s, might not be easy. But we must ask ourselves: what alternative is there? Unthinking, uncritical loyalty to the U.S. under Donald Trump is a far less appealing idea.
Emily Thornberry
I think that rather than saying that Occupy Wall Street has died, we can say that they’re in the process of understanding what the long march through alternative institutions might mean.
Henry Giroux
In an alternative life, I would have loved to work in film – I love film.
Tobias Forge
I was in my early 20s and open to alternative lifestyles. I thought, ‘I bet you get a lot of attractive, interesting women in a vegetarian co-op.’
John Mackey
Scientists should not do animal testing if there is any alternative, but subject to that, I would support it on grounds of the medical benefits.
David Sainsbury, Baron Sainsbury of Turville
There was a time when the community that was on the Net was homogenous and civilized. Now it’s not. We’re in the middle of chaos. It may calm down. But the alternative is that there’s a total meltdown of the system and that it becomes unusable. That would be a catastrophe.
Robert Cailliau
As more people get into indie bands and alternative mus

As more people get into indie bands and alternative music, they’re also getting more into other genres that fit those categories, like jazz and classical. It’s becoming more rebellious to go to a classical concert. You’re getting the younger art house crowd and regular students as well as those who are just curious.
Hilary Hahn
The Chinese have done some extraordinary things in terms of the investments they’ve made in alternative sources of energy.
Henry Paulson
I don’t know how to do anything else other than be an actor. If I wasn’t in this, I would be in alternative energy and conservation.
Ian Somerhalder
If you win elections on the theory that government is always bad and will mess up a two-car parade… a real change-maker represents a real threat. So your only option is to create a cartoon, a cartoon alternative, then run against the cartoon. Cartoons are two-dimensional; they’re easy to absorb.
William J. Clinton
As both developed and developing nations search for alternative sources of energy in response to the growing energy crisis, we at Acumen Fund believe that investing in entrepreneurs who provide innovative energy solutions is an increasingly critical part of the solution.
Jacqueline Novogratz
So along with several very popular Internet sites, talk radio has served as alternative media that gives listeners information that they otherwise would not hear.
Paul Weyrich
Liberalism is, I think, resurgent. One reason is that more and more people are so painfully aware of the alternative.
John Kenneth Galbraith
I love… different kinds of music. I like classical music and pop music. I like alternative, and I like rap, hip-hop, and I kind of collected all these things that I love, and they infused my sensibilities, and I just wanted to sing because it felt like it needed to come out of me.
Rachel Platten
I felt a responsibility to present a viable alternative to the popular electric sound.
Ron Carter
The best writers attempt to become alternative historians.
Colum McCann
Our society needs to become less fragmented and more open to alternative viewpoints.
Susan Collins
But we don’t have an example of a democratic society existing in a socialist economy – which is the only real alternative to capitalism in the modern world.
Peter L. Berger
I do think there is a lot of potential if you have a compelling product and people are willing to pay a premium for that. I think that is what Apple has shown. You can buy a much cheaper cell phone or laptop, but Apple’s product is so much better than the alternative, and people are willing to pay that premium.
Elon Musk
Just because I front the band or we play bigger stages now, it doesn’t mean we somehow suddenly changed the way we approach things. We all still view what we do as indie and alternative in terms of how we execute it, even if the actual music we make is more pop than our previous projects.
Lauren Mayberry
The whole New Deal was in a sense just a series of public options, some more optional than others, that offered government as an alternative to the often-flawed private market.
Adam Cohen
If we really want to make change, we have to make peace with the fact that we cannot self-exempt every time the calendar offers us a more attractive alternative.
Marshall Goldsmith
There’s no alternative to Catalan independence.
Carles Puigdemont
A fatwa is a religious edict. Such edicts bind only those who seek to follow the Imam issuing them but can be regarded as an option for others seeking an alternative view.
Maajid Nawaz
The rationale for eliminating the alternative minimum tax is that such a backup system should not be necessary if the tax code is fundamentally fair and eliminates all the loopholes that made it possible for high-income taxpayers to escape taxation in the first place.
James B. Stewart
I’ve always been passionate about movies, TV, and writing, and I’ve been working so hard at it for so long. There were lots of setbacks, but I loved it so much, there was no alternative.
Nahnatchka Khan
When we uphold the rule of law, our counterterrorism tools are more likely to withstand the scrutiny of our courts, our allies, and the American people. And when we uphold the rule of law it provides a powerful alternative to the twisted worldview offered by al-Qa’ida.
John O. Brennan
To me, Ann Romney sounds like a better candidate than her husband. She put her MS into remission through horseback riding, alternative therapies, and a healthy diet. She knows how to pace herself. She has a sense of humor and an innate honesty, and her hair moves in the wind. Maybe she should run.
Patti Davis
There are those of us that believe if you truly want to try drive down the cost of gas, if you really want to solve the problem, then you should be pursuing the extraction of our resources that are right here at home: alternative energy and traditional.
Jason Chaffetz
