I’m trying to put plus-size on the map. We can be fashion-forward.
So, we just kind of created our own thing and that’s part of the beauty of Athens: is that it’s so off the map and there’s no way you could ever be the East Village or an L.A. scene or a San Francisco scene, that it just became its own thing.
I think every entrepreneur in Canada owes the next generation a road map of how to do it again.

I literally can’t get anywhere now without the map on my phone. I used to use an A-Z when I first came to London, and now I really struggle because there’s no dot to show where I am. And I think that part of my brain doesn’t work any more.
I think if you were to look at my resume in total you would see a lot of things that are kind of all over the map.
A lot of my friends have tattoos; I realized that it’s not only just a part of pop culture, but a bit of a map on someone’s body, which says something about people. A part of their life, like an armor or a crest.
I’m doing a Dylan Thomas film, Map of Love, with Mick Jagger producing again. It’s a wonderful script.
Wars of nations are fought to change maps. But wars of poverty are fought to map change.
I compare a lot of life to looking at a map through a straw. The less ability you have to see life in a humorous way, the smaller the straw is that you’re looking at the map of life. You’re not looking at the whole picture. You can’t see the whole topography without it, and it can help you to make better choices.
The pulsar map is not dangerous at all. It will likely never even be seen by extraterrestrials.
My earliest memory is nursing and struggling to see the colored lights making up the map of the world, the famous backdrop for Larry King’s TV show. There’s an ‘I-want-to-do-all-things-at-once’ kind of theme to it.
The views of the Earth are really beautiful. If you’ve ever seen a space IMAX movie, that’s really what it looks like. I wish I’d had more time just to sit and look out the window with a map, but our science program kept us very busy in the lab most of the time.
My idea is to make moves to bring chess back to the world’s map, to make it part of the world’s geography again.

I put Compton on the map.
With population pressures, urbanization, and modernization encroaching, we’re in a race against time. Why not use the most advanced tools we have to map, quantify, and protect our past?
If Europe does not advance, it will fall or even be wiped out from the world map… My duty is to bring Europe out of its lethargy.
When I was at MIT, they had a beta test of Mosaic, the first popular browser. I remember looking at it, and there was a weather map or something. Now, in fairness to me, there weren’t any websites then. But I remember saying, ‘This is stupid – what’s the point?’ Now, of course, it’s obvious.
When it comes to the periodic table, the United States really blew its chance to make a name for itself. If you look over a map of all the elements named for cities, states, countries, and continents, it’s not surprising that European locales dominate the map.
The first thing to recognize not just about Afghanistan but about any poor undeveloped country is that as big as it looks on the map, it’s much bigger when you’re there.
If we looked in the world of 1945 and looked at the map of capitalist economies and democratic polities, they were the rare exception, not the norm.

Religion is like a map. The route isn’t important. It’s the destination that matters.
I respect and value the ideals of rugged individualism and self-reliance. But rugged individualism didn’t defeat the British, it didn’t get us to the moon, build our nation’s highways, or map the human genome. We did that together. This is the high call of patriotism.
Map out your future – but do it in pencil. The road ahead is as long as you make it. Make it worth the trip.
I’m in no hurry to get anywhere. I don’t have any plans. I don’t have a map. If you did in this business, you’d destroy yourself.

We see the sea as this place of leisure and this place, you know, a blue patch on the map to fly over because we all go by plane these days, mostly. And we don’t really see it as a place of industry anymore.
I take that stage, and I’m the same guy backstage as I am on the stage. And you know what that guy is. That guy is a star. That guy is a champion. That guy is the guy that put ‘205 Live’ on the map.
Life is too mysterious to try to map it out. I’ve certainly lived long enough to know it will take you places you never thought it would take you – and some of those places are kind of wonderful.
If you look at a map, you see that Hawaii is in the middle of nowhere. It’s 17 hours of straight flying from London. It’s very far away, and sometimes you feel as if you’re on another planet. But I like that. Also, that’s ideal for writing.
When we first started, we were a band from Athens and that was so off the map.
‘Star Trek’ put sci-fi on the map and changed television, and ‘Battlestar’ has changed it in another direction by making it a little more mainstream and acceptable to people who wouldn’t normally watch sci-fi.
Ludacris albums are all over the map in terms of overall quality, but as a rapper, he tops out as a hilarious, charismatic guy with a singular voice.
Every so often, you want to map out your plot mythology but never so specifically that you can’t let a story surprise you. You want to allow the type of action of the writer’s room so that you have the ability to take a left turn.
What we did is we used NASA topography data to map out the landscape, very subtle changes. We started to be able to see where the Nile used to flow.
At the very least, noir offers an alternate reality – moments of real passion, a bleak code of honor, and a need for freedom amid corruption. At its best, noir offers a map of subversion.
I like debate and argument, so I’m usually all right with disagreement, and I’m even all right if the critic doesn’t come to a clear thumbs up or thumbs down. But I need the disagreement to have some kind of line I can follow on the map. I like following an interesting mind along it.
When I’m, like, 30, I want to go off the map, have a family and live in Malibu with a farm, and just raise my own chickens.
The FHA literally drew up the redlining map and then basically distributed – I’m sorry, the Home Owners’ Loan Corporation actually did it, and then distributed to banks who used that as policy to determine how they would lend and who they would lend to. The racism in the system was pervasive and total.
In 2011, I contributed an essay to Tin House, ‘The Dark Side of Dinner Dishes, Laundry, and Child Care,’ talking about women writers I felt had fallen off the map.
Parents are teachers as much as caregivers, and our children learn to navigate life’s challenges by watching us. Kids can get a road map for how to handle painful emotions.

I want to be able to leave behind an infrastructure and a road map for any of my dreamers to follow. So that they can again take care of their family, pursue what they love and live a fulfilling life. Everyone is called, but not everyone answers. I was called, and I answered.
You fall in love with somebody who fits within what I call your ‘love map,’ an unconscious list of traits that you build in childhood as you grow up. And I also think that you gravitate to certain people, actually, with somewhat complementary brain systems.
LTE has accelerated faster than most people had anticipated. It really took off very quickly from the time it was introduced. We did have our internal development road map, but we just needed to accelerate it.
I always say that Sheri Martell was that one thing that put Harlem Heat on the map, made us a legitimate tag team.
I do go back to Russia frequently, about twice a year. I hate the flight, but it’s worth it. My parents have a home in a little village of 12 houses. It’s not on any map, so unless you know it’s there, you won’t find it. Nothing works there; no Internet, no cell phone, and the land line only works sometimes. It’s great!
I think Edge has completely put himself on the map as a bona fide WWE superstar.
I travel without barely any luggage. Just a second set of underwear and binoculars and a map and a toothbrush.
I’ve got a rubber face. It has always served me very well and really helps, especially as I get older, because I still have all my road map intact, and I can use it at will.
Bolt put the Mobot on the map, to be honest with you! He’s just an amazing guy.

If your country is wiped off the map and your language is banned, if your literature has to serve a cause, it becomes, however brilliant, rather hard to travel.
There was a great complexity to my father. He was a devoted family man. But, in the same breath, he simply was not suited to an anchored life. He should have been somebody who had a backpack, an old map, a bit of change in his pocket and that was it – roaming the world.
