Famous quotes containing the word regions:

    In place of a world, there is a city, a point, in which the whole life of broad regions is collecting while the rest dries up. In place of a type-true people, born of and grown on the soil, there is a new sort of nomad, cohering unstably in fluid masses, the parasitical city dweller, traditionless, utterly matter-of-fact, religionless, clever, unfruitful, deeply contemptuous of the countryman and especially that highest form of countryman, the country gentleman.
    Oswald Spengler (1880–1936)

    In common with other rural regions much of the Iowa farm lore concerns the coming of company. When the rooster crows in the doorway, or the cat licks his fur, company is on the way.
    —For the State of Iowa, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    It is doubtful whether anyone who has travelled widely has found anywhere in the world regions more ugly than in the human face.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
