― Lee Hsien Loong

“We think the way out of poverty is to view the poor as producers, and the Internet is probably the most efficient tool we have for tapping this capacity. Because you don’t need roads. You don’t need customs officials who are friendly. You don’t need to manage shipping and delivery schedules. You don’t have to worry about tariffs.”

― Leila Janah

“I love it in the States. The roads are big, the food is big. If it was possible to be in L.A. and still live my racing life, I would move now.”

― Lewis Hamilton

― Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva

“Living in Barcelona, I have my own little ghetto utopia. There are 3,000 ghost towns in Spain, and I’ve used the images of them a lot in my backdrops for my solo spoken-word stuff. The ghost towns could be from two buildings to 40 – things died out, or there were plagues, the roads don’t lead there, whatever.”

― Lydia Lunch

“Demands for equal financing of sewers, streets, and garbage collection would make more sense than proposals for equal financing of the schools, since some plausible connection may be inferred between the amount of money expended, e.g., for roads, and the quality of service resulting to the taxpayer.”

― M. Stanton Evans

“During World War II, hundreds of thousands of people actually – and among them many African-American – migrated to the Hampton Roads area because of the job boom that was happening. It was a place where you could get stable war jobs.”

― Mark Skousen

“Society can take two roads – the road to genuine prosperity, or the road to artificial stimulus. The first results in a permanent higher standard of living for all; the latter creates an inflationary boom that cannot last.”

“We have managed to acquire $13 trillion of debt on our balance sheet. In my view we have nothing to show for it. We haven’t invested in our roads, our bridges, our waste-water systems, our sewer systems. We haven’t even maintained the assets that our parents and grandparents built for us.”

― Michael Bennet

“I say we have not even had the decency to maintain the assets that our parents and grandparents built for us – our roads, our bridges, our wastewater systems, our sewer systems; by the way, those weren’t Bolsheviks, those weren’t socialists that built those things for us – much less build the infrastructure we need for the 21st century.”

― Michael Bennet

“You know, if you look back in the 1930s, the money went to infrastructure. The bridges, the municipal buildings, the roads, those were all built with stimulus money spent on infrastructure. This stimulus bill has fundamentally gone, started out with a $500 rebate check, remember. That went to buy flat-screen TVs made in China.”

― Michael Bloomberg

“To suggest that organic vegetables, which cost far more than conventional produce, can feed billions of people in parts of the world without roads or proper irrigation may be a fantasy based on the finest intentions. But it is a cruel fantasy nonetheless.”

― Michael Specter

“Today, tomorrow and every day, we will see at least 2,000 young children killed or seriously injured on the world’s roads. This is unacceptable, preventable, and we have to stop it. We have the vaccines for this disease: helmets, seatbelts, speed enforcement, safe road design. We just need to use them.”

“Many of the problems of poverty and need are really problems of physical infrastructure: not enough hospitals, too few schools, insufficient roads, bridges, and a lack of tools. This is what makes traditional philanthropy so daunting. You could build a thousand new hospitals in some parts of the world and barely make a difference.”

― Naveen Jain

“Bengaluru’s traffic does not allow scope for cycling regularly, but I brave the roads occasionally and take the cycle out to work.”

― Naveen Tewari

“Coming from Mumbai, the one thing that always amazes me about Noida is the roads here. Such wide roads are something you don’t get to see in Mumbai. Driving around here is surely a pleasure.”

― Neha Kakkar

“We didn’t build the interstate system to connect New York to Los Angeles because the West Coast was a priority. No, we webbed the highways so people can go to multiple places and invent ways of doing things not thought of by the persons building the roads.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson

“If there are dreams about a beautiful South Africa, there are also roads that lead to their goal. Two of these roads could be named Goodness and Forgiveness.”

― Nick Hanauer

“We have soon to have everywhere smoke annihilators, dust absorbers, ozonizers, sterilizers of water, air, food and clothing, and accident preventers on streets, elevated roads and in subways.

― Nikola Tesla

“Maps are living, breathing organisms that change on a daily basis: You see it in new roads, bridge closures, and demolitions.”

“It’s not in the interest of most mapping companies to make those changes as they occur, but if you give the power to local people, you can be sure that you’re always getting the best information from the folks that actually drive those roads every day.”

― Noam Bardin

“The whole infrastructure of air travel was, and is, part of government policy. It is not a natural development of a free economic system – at least not in the way that is claimed. The same is true of the roads, of course.”

― Oren Etzioni

“People understand what is good for them in the long run. In the long run, what is good for people is that India’s economy continues to grow at clipping pace, 8% and above, that itself brings host of benefits to the people. It brings better roads, it brings better schools, brings more money to the communities, it brings more jobs.”

― P. Chidambaram

“By the end of the 1950s, American cars were so reliable that their reliability went without saying even in car ads. Thousands of them bear testimony to this today, still running on the roads of Cuba though fueled with nationalized Venezuelan gasoline and maintained with spit and haywire.”

― P. J. O’Rourke

“I used to think that, by the 21st century, cars would run on electricity rather than gasoline and would have guidance systems so that they actually drove themselves. Specially equipped roadways would transmit instructions to the cars, telling them where to go and how fast. I figured this would be in the lines painted on the roads.”

― Pat Cadigan

“One phrase we use at Stripe is, ‘Most tech companies are building cars. Stripe is building roads.’”

― Paul Engle

“I drove from Naples to the Amalfi coast in an Alpha Romeo 1969 Spider, which was lovely. There have been lots of movies made down there, and I felt a bit like James Bond – the driving is quite hairy. The locals have mopeds, but you wouldn’t catch me on a bike on those roads. A tank would be safer!”

― Paul Hollywood

“I have always loved running on the roads, ever since I used to take part in relays for my club when I was 12 and 13. I felt really at home on the surface.”

“Having a Hummer is stupid. It’s stupid to waste that much gas. It’s stupid to waste that much money on gas. It’s stupid to parade your insecurities on public roads. Hummers are stupid-looking.”

― Penn Jillette

“I teach MBAs. And I noticed, starting a few years after China joined the World Trade Organization, that a lot of my students were no longer employed. They were still coming to get their MBA, but they’d lost their jobs. And I started to ask questions why. And, at that point, all roads were leading to Beijing.”

― Peter Navarro

― Piyush Goyal

“As India becomes more tax-compliant, government revenues will improve, and we will be able to serve the poor better. We can have better roads, healthcare, education, and improve the life of farmers.”

― Piyush Goyal

“If inflation is brought down, interest rates will fall. Once rates fall, we have the opportunity to maybe achieve the goal of ‘housing for all’ faster; take roads, infrastructure to India’s interiors.”

― Piyush Goyal

“You look at the road you could have taken, you know, I just think that’s interesting… I’ve been on a lot of roads and I had to hitchhike on a couple of ’em… I have to be very honest: There’s not an awful lot of regret in my life. I think that, you know, you learn from everything, and then, sometimes, you don’t.”

― Polly Bergen

“Instead of being just a church that welcomes and receives by keeping the doors open, let us try also to be a church that finds new roads, that is able to step outside itself and go to those who do not attend Mass, to those who have quit or are indifferent.”

― Pope Francis

“This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas. The world is crisscrossed by roads that come closer together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead towards the Good.”

― Pope Francis

“The roads of life are strewn with the wreckage of run-down and half-finished loves.”

― Ralph W. Sockman

― Richard Lamm

“Though actually the work of man’s hands – or, more properly speaking, the work of his travelling feet, – roads have long since come to seem so much a part of Nature that we have grown to think of them as a feature of the landscape no less natural than rocks and trees.”

― Rory MacLean

“Usually, there is no equivalent of air traffic control at sea.

As on roads, this doesn’t always work.”

― Rose George

― Stone Cold Steve Austin

“I’ve seen neighborhoods that I would have never driven though because I’m riding my bike, because I’m looking for side roads, looking for maybe more hills or less hills depending if I’m exercising or not. You see a lot more, and you get the flow of a city a lot more.”

― Stone Gossard

― Uzodinma Iweala
