We’ve collected the best Rivers Quotes from the greatest minds of the world: Ali Wong, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, Jaggi Vasudev, Stephen Kinzer, Winston Churchill. Use them as an inspiration.
The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers created the ‘Fertile Crescent’ where some of the first civilizations emerged. Today they are immensely important resources, politically as well as geographically.
I think people really understand that clean air and clean water and not having factories dumping their emissions into the atmosphere and into the rivers and into the sea has been a very good thing for America. EPA stands watch for very important principles that go all the way back to Teddy Roosevelt.
The virtues are lost in self-interest as rivers are lost in the sea.
I’m interested in raw land and trees and fresh air and rivers and lots of animals around them.
And by reducing carbon pollution in our atmosphere, we are protecting our air, water, mountains, forests, deserts, valleys, coasts and rivers – the astounding natural ecosystems that support all life and make Oregon the special place we call home.
There’s a really great documentary called ‘Many Rivers,’ which documents the totality of slavery from its inception, and then it gives you a little history on how America came to prominence. It’s crazy – the first black man to actually step foot in America came as a free man, as an explorer, with the Spaniards.
Even as global warming increases the frequency of El Nino and the Atlantic event, their effects are being amplified by the annual loss of an area of rain forest the size of New Jersey. Less rain falls, and the water runs into the rivers instead of being sucked up by the fungus filaments and tree roots.
I think Joan Rivers is such an untapped legend that people just don’t appreciate, because they grew up with her on QVC, or they grew up with her on E!, or they grew up watching her do the things that in their minds the more prestigious comics wouldn’t have taken or done.
Joan Rivers was my hero.
I feel spirituality is not just restricted to God. There are ample manifestations of God on earth as well – in our parents and in the nature – trees, mountains and rivers.
China and India are close neighbours linked by mountains and rivers and the Chinese and Indian peoples have enjoyed friendly exchanges for thousands of years.
I don’t know the secret of Mrs. Brown, but what I do know is that there are things that Mrs. Brown says and does that Brendan O’Carroll couldn’t get away with. I think maybe it’s a leniency that they’re with an old woman. It’s the old woman thing. I think secretly we all just want to be Joan Rivers.
I think there have always been funny women, from Carol Burnett to Joan Rivers. When the audience sees a woman, they innately know she’s worked twice as hard to get there, she’s had to prove that she can be the leader, first, and then be funny on top of it. She has to emit a confidence that she’s in control.
When I defend our right to hunt and fish on public lands, rivers and streams. Or work for better schools. And more good paying jobs that can support a family. Those aren’t political issues to me. They’re personal.
Some Western states have collaborative water agreements with Indian tribes – Washington state, for instance, monitors a number of its rivers to protect spawning salmon, which are promised to native peoples under 19th-century treaties.
Congress has an obligation to protect our country’s natural beauty, embodied in our nation‘s parks, rivers, and breathtaking landscapes.
It is not differences of opinion; it is geographical lines, rivers, and mountains which divide State from State, and make different nations of mankind.
It was really my grandmother who was the biggest influence because she’d talk back to the celebrities and politicians on TV. She was a combination of Joan Rivers, Elaine Stritch, Betty White, and Bea Arthur rolled into one.
In many respects, Afghanistan represents a more difficult problem set. It does not have a number of the blessings that Iraq has in terms of the oil, gas, land of two rivers, the human capital that Iraq built up over the years, the muscle memory of a strong government – albeit one that was corrupted over time.
I go back to a very specific aspect of the Midwest – small towns surrounded by farmland. They make a good stage for what I like to write about, i.e., roads and houses, bridges and rivers and weather and woods, and people to whom strange or interesting things happen, causing problems they must overcome.
We depend on our rivers and dams for energy, transportation, irrigation and recreation and I will continue this year to fight for what’s best for the Pacific Northwest.
Imagine if Congress always put the interests of polluters ahead of the health of our families. Our rivers and lakes would be choked with sewage. Acid rain would pour down from smog-filled skies. Hundreds of thousands more of our neighbors, friends, and loved ones would be victims of cancer, heart disease, and asthma.
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full.
In celebration of this Earth Day, I encourage all Members of the House to support legislation aimed at investing in the improvement of water quality in our Nation’s lakes, rivers, streams and estuaries.
There are certain rivers which can be linked, which will be beneficial especially for flood mitigation… It will be very useful process, but all rivers in India are not fit to be linked.
In the rich world, the environmental situation has improved dramatically. In the United States, the most important environmental indicator, particulate air pollution, has been cut by more than half since 1955, rivers and coastal waters have dramatically improved, and forests are increasing.
Our public lands are one of our state’s greatest gifts – from the San Gabriel Mountains, to the Central Coast, and through Northwestern California‘s forests and rivers.
