I've always wanted to see what Egypt was like when they were building the pyramids or Rome at the height of the empire or Greece - more specifically, Crete before it was destroyed. Why? Because I'm curious how we all hung out on a day to day basis, what was the chit chat, etc. Reading things in a book never gives you the feel.Albert Hammond Jr. Empire Building Sayings By Albert Hammond Jr.: I've always wanted to see what Egypt was like when they were building the pyramids
Success always calls for greater generosity - though most people, lost in the darkness of their own egos, treat it as an occasion for greater greed. Collecting boot is not an end itself, but only a means for building an empire. Riches would be of little use to us now - except as a means of winning new friends.Cyrus The Great Empire Building Sayings By Cyrus The Great: Success always calls for greater generosity - though most people, lost in the darkness of
I don't like to see things on purpose. I like them to soak in. A friend ... asked me to go to the top of the Empire State Building once, and I told him that he shouldn't treat New York as a sight-it's feeling, an emotional experience. And the same with every place else.Robert Frost Empire Building Sayings By Robert Frost: I don't like to see things on purpose. I like them to soak in. A
See what happens when you abuse steroids? Dudes should have read the warning label. First the penis shrinks, then the sentence structure deteriorates. Next thing you know, you're climbing to the top of the Empire State Building, swatting at planes with your oversized fists.
Granted you'd be there with a seriously attractive blonde, so even being a monster freak had some perks ...

Sherrilyn Kenyon Empire Building Sayings By Sherrilyn Kenyon: See what happens when you abuse steroids? Dudes should have read the warning label. First
Abolition is not some disstant future but something we create in every moment when we say no to the traps of empire and yes to the nourishing possibilities dreamed of and practiced by our ancestors and friends. Every time we insist on accessible and affirming health care, safe and quality education, meaningful and secure employment, loving and healing relationships, and being our full and whole selves, we are doing abolition. Abolition is about breaking down things that oppress and building up things that nourish. Abolition is the practice of transformation in the here and now and the ever after.Eric A. Stanley Empire Building Sayings By Eric A. Stanley: Abolition is not some disstant future but something we create in every moment when we
The west has a great deal to answer for in the Middle East, from Britain's belated empire-building after the First World War to the US and British policy that condemns modern Iraq to the material and social squalor of a half-century ago.James Buchan Empire Building Sayings By James Buchan: The west has a great deal to answer for in the Middle East, from Britain's

... and left decimated. Not for myself, but for all the single women out there trying to date. I wanted to run to the top of the Empire State Building and make an announcement to all of them to let them know they are worth so much more than this. That they don't need to wrangle some warm body to sit next to them just so they aren't alone on holidays. That they should never let a magazine or dating site or matchmaker monster tell them they're in a lower bracket of desirability because of their age or weight or face or sense of humor.Amy Schumer Empire Building Sayings By Amy Schumer: ... and left decimated. Not for myself, but for all the single women out there
Whenever Great Britain's iron hand needs to appear, like a well-oiled mechanism that is never forgotten or neglected, the two pillars that hold up the Empire's dominion rise into view: the Administration and the Law. As I have said before . . . nothing odder than the flimsy wood and stone building called the Palace of Justice, in the farthest corner of the South Atlantic, provided so that the authorities might investigate the murder of men, who, romantically . . . went out to exercise their own rights over the life and liberty of others about whom they had not the slightest knowledge.Sylvia Iparraguirre Empire Building Sayings By Sylvia Iparraguirre: Whenever Great Britain's iron hand needs to appear, like a well-oiled mechanism that is never

Jess thought for a moment. 'You know those films where people fight up the top of the Empire State Building or up a mountain or whatever? And there's always that bit when the baddie slips off and the hero tries to save him, but, like, the sleeve of this jacket tears off and goes over and you hear him all the way down. Aaaaaaaaagh. That's what I want to do.'
'You want to watch me plunge to my doom.'
'I'd like to know that I've made the effort. I want to show people the torn sleeve.
Nick Hornby Empire Building Sayings By Nick Hornby: Jess thought for a moment. 'You know those films where people fight up the top

Women can stand on the Empire State Building and scream to the heavens that they are equal to men and liberated, but until they have the same anatomy, it's a lie. It's more of a man's world today than ever. Men can eat their cake in unlimited bakeries.Maureen Dowd Empire Building Sayings By Maureen Dowd: Women can stand on the Empire State Building and scream to the heavens that they

From the ruins, lonely and inexplicable as the sphinx, rose the Empire State Building.
And just as it had been tradition of mine to climb to the Plaza roof to take leave of the beautiful city extending as far as the eyes could see, so now I went to the roof of that last and most magnificent of towers.
Then I understood. Everything was explained. I had discovered the crowning error of the city. Its Pandora's box.
Full of vaunting pride, the New Yorker had climbed here, and seen with dismay what he had never suspected. That the city was not the endless sucession of canyons that he had supposed, but that it had limits, fading out into the country on all sides into an expanse of green and blue. That alone was limitless.
And with the awful realization that New York was a city after all and not a universe, the whole shining ediface that he had reared in his mind came crashing down.
That was the gift of Alfred Smith to the citizens of New York.
F Scott Fitzgerald Empire Building Sayings By F Scott Fitzgerald: From the ruins, lonely and inexplicable as the sphinx, rose the Empire State Building. And
When I first came to New York City, what I was thrilled about was not the Empire State Building, or the Statue of Liberty; it was the fireplugs in the street. These things that Jack Kirby had drawn. Or these cylindrical water towers on top of buildings that Steve Ditko's 'Spider-Man' fights used to happen in and around.Dave Gibbons Empire Building Sayings By Dave Gibbons: When I first came to New York City, what I was thrilled about was not
Abbot Miron had sat sewing a patch on his trousers as we talked. He raised his intense luminous eyes to Gaston and said, "Years ago I had a postcard from my brother in New York, who had been to the top of the Empire State Building. He didn't investigate the foundations first, Pastor Gaston. The fact that it had been there forty years is proof that the foundations are good. The same with the Church, which has rested two thousand years on the truth.Richard Wurmbrand Empire Building Sayings By Richard Wurmbrand: Abbot Miron had sat sewing a patch on his trousers as we talked. He raised
'Sleepless' was a script that had been written by three or four other writers before me, and it never really worked, but it had this amazing ending on the top of the Empire State Building that just worked, no matter what came before it.Nora Ephron Empire Building Sayings By Nora Ephron: 'Sleepless' was a script that had been written by three or four other writers before
Looking for a supernova, therefore, was a little like standing on the observation platform of the Empire State Building with a telescope and searching windows around Manhattan in the hope of finding, let us say, someone lighting a twenty-first birthday cake.Bill Bryson Empire Building Sayings By Bill Bryson: Looking for a supernova, therefore, was a little like standing on the observation platform of
I envied many for being happy, successful and content. I wondered how a sick friend managed to look resplendent in her profile picture?
How someone with a dark past post hilarious Facebook status? Until one day ... I realised that while they all were making a conscious effort to grow in life, I simply sat and worshipped the grave of my sufferings.
I sat at one place and did nothing but moan. So, I stopped. I don't dig graves anymore as I am too busy building my empire.
Saru Singhal Empire Building Sayings By Saru Singhal: I envied many for being happy, successful and content. I wondered how a sick friend
The British accomplished much with little; at the height of empire, an insignificant number of Anglo-Celts controlled the entire Indian subcontinent. A confident culture can dominate far larger numbers of people, as England did for much of modern history. By contrast, in an era of Massively Applied Desultoriness, we spend a fortune going to war with one hand tied behind our back ... So on we stagger, with Cold War institutions, transnational sensibilities, politically correct solicitousness, fraudulent preening pseudo-nation building, expensive gizmos, little will, and no war aims ... but real American lives.Mark Steyn Empire Building Sayings By Mark Steyn: The British accomplished much with little; at the height of empire, an insignificant number of
The Empire State, a lonely dinosaur, rose sadly at midtown, highest tower, tallest mountain, longest road, King Kong's eyrie, meant to moor airships, alas.Vincent Scully Empire Building Sayings By Vincent Scully: The Empire State, a lonely dinosaur, rose sadly at midtown, highest tower, tallest mountain, longest
Our world is so complex that we take for granted engineering processes that would dwarf any of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World; we ride railroad tracks that do not follow faithfully the curvature of the earth, for the train would jump the tracks if they were level. We pass skyscrapers whose stress and strain are figured to the millionth of an inch, yet take for granted that the Empire State Building actually sways constantly many feet. If we are religiously inclined, we take going to the church of our choice for granted; if we are non believers, we give no second thought to the fact that we do not have to attend religious services if we do not choose. Yet the very privilege of non-belief represents the victory of philosophy; otherwise the non-churchgoer would still face the lions or the stake.Kahlil Gibran Empire Building Sayings By Kahlil Gibran: Our world is so complex that we take for granted engineering processes that would dwarf
I cannot believe her when she says
I am beautiful. She cannot want me,
not the way I want her. My want
is an Empire State Building
I monster-climb with her
clutched in my fist. They make old,
flickering horror movies
about the way I look at her mouth.
Clementine Von Radics Empire Building Sayings By Clementine Von Radics: I cannot believe her when she saysI am beautiful. She cannot want me,not the way
But Empire building also bears the seeds of its own destruction. The closer a state comes to the ultimate goal of world domination and one-world government, the less reason is there to maintain its internal liberalism and do instead what all states are inclined to do anyway, i.e., to crack down and increase their exploitation of whatever productive people are still left. Consequently, with no additional tributaries available and domestic productivity stagnating or falling, the Empire's internal policies of bread and circuses can no longer be maintained. Economic crisis hits, and an impending economic meltdown will stimulate decentralizing tendencies, separatist and secessionist movements, and lead to the break-up of Empire. We have seen this happen with Great Britain, and we are seeing it now, with the US and its Empire apparently on its last leg.Hans-Hermann Hoppe Empire Building Sayings By Hans-Hermann Hoppe: But Empire building also bears the seeds of its own destruction. The closer a state
Many at the State Department think its their job, not the Army's, to develop cultural and regional expertise and relationships. In such quarters, the RAF concept looks less like an innovative approach to global risk management than yet another military effort to replace diplomats with soldiers.Rosa Brooks Empire Building Sayings By Rosa Brooks: Many at the State Department think its their job, not the Army's, to develop cultural
Maddy once shared this whole working theory about professional men who spend the day building an empire and ego at work, then come home assuming they deserve the same status, despite the fact that it's a different audience.Abby Fabiaschi Empire Building Sayings By Abby Fabiaschi: Maddy once shared this whole working theory about professional men who spend the day building
The swim of things. I go on an airplane. I walk under the Empire State Building. I take the bus, and the subway, and am surrounded by strangers the whole time. I certainly have room in my life for caution, but I have no room in my life for paralyzing fear. There's always a risk. There always has been. But I'd rather live my life than die of negations.David Levithan Empire Building Sayings By David Levithan: The swim of things. I go on an airplane. I walk under the Empire State
In other words, the problem of empire-building is essentially mystical. It must somehow foster the impression that a man is great in the degree that his nation is great; that a German as such is superior to a Belgian as such; an Englishman, to an Irishman; an American, to a Mexican: merely because the first-named countries are in each case more powerful than their comparatives. And people who have no individual stature whatever are willing to accept this poisonous nonsense because it gives them a sense of importance without the trouble of any personal effort.Felix Morley Empire Building Sayings By Felix Morley: In other words, the problem of empire-building is essentially mystical. It must somehow foster the
Where am I going to grow a garden in a penthouse?"
"Next time I visit I'll fix you up a spot in one of the corners. You won't even know it's there until its time to harvest."
"Wonderful." But then it occurred to her. "Jenny, next time you visit?"
"What? What is it?" Jennifer asked.
Christine half stuttered. "You have never been to my penthouse."
"Really?" Jennifer thought back when something came to mind. "Well, what was that great big building we went to the last time we visited? You know, we went all the way to the top."
"That was the Empire State building."
"No fooling? Huh, what do you know? Well you should move in there, it was beautiful as I recall."
"You can't move into the Empire State building."
"Oh, that's right," Jennifer soon realized, "those mean terrorists tore it down. My, that was just awful.
Carroll Bryant Empire Building Sayings By Carroll Bryant: Where am I going to grow a garden in a penthouse?""Next time I visit I'll
We still have the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building and the Woolworth Building, but it just seems like part of the nature of New York, that it's always shifting.Richard Hell Empire Building Sayings By Richard Hell: We still have the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building and the Woolworth Building,
From the book he carefully tears out several maps, and in this light Afghanistan's mountains and hills and restlessly branching corridors of rock appear as though the pages are crumpled up, and there is a momentary wish in him to smooth them down. Laser-guided bombs are falling onto the pages in his hands, missiles summoned from the Arabian Sea, from American warships that are as long as the Empire State Building is tall.Nadeem Aslam Empire Building Sayings By Nadeem Aslam: From the book he carefully tears out several maps, and in this light Afghanistan's mountains

The consolidation of the states into one vast empire, sure to be aggressive abroad and despotic at home, will be the certain precursor of ruin which has overwhelmed all that preceded it.Robert E.Lee Empire Building Sayings By Robert E.Lee: The consolidation of the states into one vast empire, sure to be aggressive abroad and
Do you want to become a true messenger of the Lord with fire burning in your bones? Then have the Man of fire dwelling in your heart. Abandon any attempts to build your own kingdom or ministry. Forget about building your own empire; build His instead. Worship God passionately. Consecrate yourself to Him to be His holy dwelling place.James W. Goll Empire Building Sayings By James W. Goll: Do you want to become a true messenger of the Lord with fire burning in

The logic behind using stone for the facing of the Empire State building seemed irrefutable, the choice of Bedford limestone inarguable. - architectural historian John TauranacDouglas Wissing Empire Building Sayings By Douglas Wissing: The logic behind using stone for the facing of the Empire State building seemed irrefutable,
I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth
that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that "except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel
Benjamin Franklin Empire Building Sayings By Benjamin Franklin: I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing
There's a weird fact that if you dropped a penny off the Empire State Building in New York City, you'd kill someone. I feel really bad, 'cause I dropped a nickel off it once.Taylor Hanson Empire Building Sayings By Taylor Hanson: There's a weird fact that if you dropped a penny off the Empire State Building
It seemed to me that there was nothing new to be discovered ever again. Our society was utterly, ruinously derivative (although the word derivative as a criticism is itself derivative). We were the first human beings who would never see anything for the first time. We stare at the wonders of the world, dull-eyed, underwhelmed. Mona Lisa, the Pyramids, the Empire State Building. Jungle animals on attack, ancient icebergs collapsing, volcanoes erupting. I can't recall a single amazing thing I have seen firsthand that I didn't immediately reference to a movie or TV show.Gillian Flynn Empire Building Sayings By Gillian Flynn: It seemed to me that there was nothing new to be discovered ever again. Our
It is much easier to condemn Islam and 'oppressive Muslim men' than to unpack the intricate relationships between global politics related to empire building and capitalist expansion as well as regional and national struggles revolving around political and economic power and resources.Nadje Al-Ali Empire Building Sayings By Nadje Al-Ali: It is much easier to condemn Islam and 'oppressive Muslim men' than to unpack the
I'm not complaining about Romance Being Dead - I've just described a happy marriage as based on talking about plants and a canceled Ray Romano show and drinking milkshakes: not exactly rose petals and gazing into each other's eyes at the top of the Empire State Building or whatever. I'm pretty sure my parents have gazed into each other's eyes maybe once, and that was so my mom could put eyedrops in my dad's eyes.Mindy Kaling Empire Building Sayings By Mindy Kaling: I'm not complaining about Romance Being Dead - I've just described a happy marriage as

You ever hear that old joke about the guy who jumped off the Empire State Building?" D.W. asked her. "Yeah. All the way down, you could hear him say, 'So far, so good. So far, so good.

Suicide attempts at the Empire State Building are rare, but the same unfortunately cannot be said about the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the most popular such site in the United States. (The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge in China is widely regarded as the world's most popular suicide bridge, and the Golden Gate Bridge is number two.) We don't know, officially, how many people have taken their lives there because when the number hit 997, authorities stopped counting to avoid giving anyone the incentive of being jumper number 1,000. Whatever the number is, it could have been much higher. In 1994, California Highway Patrol Sergeant Kevin Briggs was assigned to patrol the bridge. Since then, he's managed to talk an estimated 200 people out of jumping.Dan Lewis Empire Building Sayings By Dan Lewis: Suicide attempts at the Empire State Building are rare, but the same unfortunately cannot be

The Japanese had no idea what elements of Western culture and institutions where the crucial ones, so they ended up copying everything, from western clothes and hair styles to the European practice of colonizing foreign people. Unfortunately, they took up empire-building at precisely the moment when the cost of imperialism began to exceed the benefits.Niall Ferguson Empire Building Sayings By Niall Ferguson: The Japanese had no idea what elements of Western culture and institutions where the crucial
I first became aware of death when my father held me up to see the view from the top of the Empire State Building. I thought that if he moved me just one foot over, I would die. But I trusted him to hold me tight. I wouldn't fall over, and he would place me down safely.Chrissi Sepe Empire Building Sayings By Chrissi Sepe: I first became aware of death when my father held me up to see the
I'm not a warmonger - like many who have worn the uniform, I am particularly averse to war. I'm also not someone who believes in empire building or imperialistic or paternalistic attitudes about the world outside of America. But our passion, influence, and responsibility as humans can never end at our borders.Wes Moore Empire Building Sayings By Wes Moore: I'm not a warmonger - like many who have worn the uniform, I am particularly
I get a little romantic about the old Empire State. Just looking at it makes me want to play some Frank Sinatra tunes and sway a little. I have a crush on a building. I'd been in there several times but never to work. I always knew there were offices in there but the face never penetrated, really. You don't work in the Empire State Building. You propose in the Empire State Building. You sneak a flask up there and raise a toast to the whole city of New York.Maureen Johnson Empire Building Sayings By Maureen Johnson: I get a little romantic about the old Empire State. Just looking at it makes
Owning great landmarks such as the Empire State Building or Trump Tower or the General Motors Building or the Plaza Hotel - there are certain just spectacular landmarks - it's an honor; it's really an honor.Donald Trump Empire Building Sayings By Donald Trump: Owning great landmarks such as the Empire State Building or Trump Tower or the General

New York is nearly a grave. The Empire State Building is its gravestone.Walter Tevis Empire Building Sayings By Walter Tevis: New York is nearly a grave. The Empire State Building is its gravestone.
The structure of a jazz performance is, like that of the New York skyline, a tension of cross-purposes. In jazz at its characteristic best, each player seems to be - and has the sense of being - on his own. Each goes his own way, inventing rhythmic and melodic patterns which, superficially, seem to have as little relevance to one another as the United Nations building does to the Empire State. And yet the outcome is a dazzlingly precise creative unity.John A. Kouwenhoven Empire Building Sayings By John A. Kouwenhoven: The structure of a jazz performance is, like that of the New York skyline, a

Because of the power shortage and lack of replacement parts there was only one elevator running in the Empire State Building, and this one went only as high as the twenty-fifth floor. After that you walked.Harry Harrison Empire Building Sayings By Harry Harrison: Because of the power shortage and lack of replacement parts there was only one elevator
I looked up at the ivory towers above us all. Nowhere else equals the feral design of this city. Tall skyscrapers that act as gorges hollowing out between flat cement dancing into narrow alleyways like bottomless pits. Building walls rusted the color of blood. Sometimes when you look down the horizon from afar the city looks wider than it is, like a thin field of magical lights gleaming with the hopes of children and idealists; a light on at midnight in one of the penthouses or the changing hues of the Empire State Building. Most of the time though, the city is covered with a layer of honking cars and greed, sirens and the war cry of solicitors, all full of brambles and impenetrable conscience; garbage, steaming manholes, and heat waves twirling smog and pollution through your lungs like mirages as you walk breathlessly through a boiling desert.Bruce Crown Empire Building Sayings By Bruce Crown: I looked up at the ivory towers above us all. Nowhere else equals the feral
The Empire State Building is the closest thing to heaven in this city.Deborah Kerr Empire Building Sayings By Deborah Kerr: The Empire State Building is the closest thing to heaven in this city.
His workplace has become a rat's nest of empire building, turf defense, careerism, backstabbing, betrayal, and snitchcraft.Thomas Pynchon Empire Building Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: His workplace has become a rat's nest of empire building, turf defense, careerism, backstabbing, betrayal,
You can see the most beautiful things from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. I read somewhere that people on the street are supposed to look like ants, but that's not true. They look like little people. And the cars look like little cars. And even the buildings look little. It's like New York is a miniature replica of New York, which is nice, because you can see what it's really like, instead of how it feels when you're in the middle of it.Jonathan Safran Foer Empire Building Sayings By Jonathan Safran Foer: You can see the most beautiful things from the observation deck of the Empire State
You could just tell that if Rosie couldn't romance her way to the top of the Empire State Building, she was prepared to climb it like King Kong.Amor Towles Empire Building Sayings By Amor Towles: You could just tell that if Rosie couldn't romance her way to the top of

There is an erroneous tendency to view empire-building by rulers from urban-agrarian kingdoms (Alexander, for example) as strategic genius, while treating nomad imperial conquests like natural disasters.James A. Millward Empire Building Sayings By James A. Millward: There is an erroneous tendency to view empire-building by rulers from urban-agrarian kingdoms (Alexander, for
So many guys try to show off to a girl by boasting of their financial assets and flashing their cash around etc, but a girl who makes her own money and is building her own empire is not impressed by such things. -Show me the integrity not the money.Miya Yamanouchi Empire Building Sayings By Miya Yamanouchi: So many guys try to show off to a girl by boasting of their financial
One bee cannot build a hive; one ant cannot build a colony.Matshona Dhliwayo Empire Building Sayings By Matshona Dhliwayo: One bee cannot build a hive; one ant cannot build a colony.
But sometimes, I feel like something's missing, and I can't quite put my finger on it. That little something extra. Excitement. A challenge. An adventure. Maybe I should bungee jump off of the empire state building or run naked in central park. Nah, that would just be plain crazy, and I'd get arrested. That wouldn't end up well. Unless there was a hot guy dressed in a uniform fingerprinting me. Then it might just be worth it.Beth Michele Empire Building Sayings By Beth Michele: But sometimes, I feel like something's missing, and I can't quite put my finger on

Building an empire ... one letter in front of the other.Coco J. Ginger Empire Building Sayings By Coco J. Ginger: Building an empire ... one letter in front of the other.
Overall, The Population Bomb was probably too optimistic. I was writing about climate change - Anne and I actually wrote the book. We discussed whether or not you'd have to take a gondola to the Empire State Building, and that sort of thing, but we didn't know at the time whether the climate change would be in the direction of heating or cooling. We just didn't know enough about it.Paul R. Ehrlich Empire Building Sayings By Paul R. Ehrlich: Overall, The Population Bomb was probably too optimistic. I was writing about climate change -
The first condition of success for the League of Nations is, therefore, a firm understanding between the British Empire and the United States of America and France and Italy that there will be no competitive building up of fleets or armies between them.Arthur Henderson Empire Building Sayings By Arthur Henderson: The first condition of success for the League of Nations is, therefore, a firm understanding
My hole is warm and full of light. Yes, full of light. I doubt if there is a brighter spot in all New York than this hole of mine, and I do not exclude Broadway. Or the Empire State Building on a photographer's dream night. But that is taking advantage of you. Those two spots are among the darkest of our whole civilization ... which might sound like a hoax, or a contradiction, but that (by contradiction, I mean) is how the world moves: Not like an arrow, but a boomerang.Ralph Ellison Empire Building Sayings By Ralph Ellison: My hole is warm and full of light. Yes, full of light. I doubt if
