Famous quotes containing the word territories:

    Imperialism is capitalism at that stage of development at which the dominance of monopolies and finance capitalism is established; in which the export of capital has acquired pronounced importance; in which the division of the world among the international trusts has begun, in which the division of all territories of the globe among the biggest capitalist powers has been completed.
    Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870–1924)

    For my part, I feel that with regard to Nature I live a sort of border life, on the confines of a world into which I make occasional and transient forays only, and my patriotism and allegiance to the state into whose territories I seem to retreat are those of a moss-trooper.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Curiosity doesn’t matter any more. These days people don’t want to be transported to emotional territories where they don’t know how to react.
    Hector Babenko (b. 1946)
