Geography Quotes

For the ones who really don’t know much about geography, it is nothing but just another subject they were forced to study in school. However, there is more to geography than what meets the eye. The term ‘geography’ in Greek, literally translates to ‘earth describe-write’. By definition, geography is the science that concerns itself with the study of the earth, its lands, phenomena and distinct features. Lose your inhibitions and read on to discover for yourself a whole lot of famous quotations and sayings on geography.

Geography as a subject can be broken into two parts, namely human and physical. Cultural geography helps us know about the culture of different places and thus helps us to know our world, which is one of the unique features of this subject. On the other hand, physical geography tells us about distribution of different places right from the level of your local area to different countries. It also helps us understand our environment and informs us about the universe. We are completely dependent on it right from the morning weather forecast, navigating to office, planning vacations, knowing about our universe and many more things.

I've consciously taken on material that's a bit too much for me but not an overreach. The first movie, just about performances. 'The Town,' I learned how to work broader material, develop tension, direct bigger scenes, action sequences. 'Argo,' I experimented with film stock, widened the scope of my geography.

Work Action

By curious accident of history and geography, the world's major energy resources are located pretty much in Shiite regions. They're a minority in the Middle East, but they happen to be where the oil is, right around the northern part of the Gulf.

Chris Cornell

Seattle very much benefited from this geography where it was a town nobody had really heard of in terms of a music scene. So we had that factor of being a new discovery.

Cory Booker

My family is no different from yours. We may be different from the geography that we come from. Some of you all may pray differently than I do, some of you all may be from a different ethnicity, but we all have the same story.
