MyKayla Skinner
The reader feels as if he is in Chongjin, where starving people ate the bark off trees; or atop Mount Taesong with the elite of Pyongyang, whose existence is a mix of sadism and whimsy; or with the masses who are bombarded day and night with the propaganda of North Korea’s alternate reality.
Adam Johnson
‘The Others’ books take place in an alternate Earth where the Earth natives have been the dominant predators throughout the world’s history, and humans are nowhere near the top of the food chain. But humans are clever and resilient, if not always wise, and have made some bargains with the Others in order to survive.
Anne Bishop
We try to reduce the danger to a minimum, of course. And then we prepare for accidents with alternate plans. For instance, if I’m turning over a stagecoach, I try to take into consideration what moves I have to make if it flips in the wrong direction. Without those emergency plans you get hurt.

Jackson Katz
In basic research, intellectual rigor and sentimental freedom necessarily alternate.

I think that the sun*like rainbow growing out of the hand is open to many alternate positive interpretations. One may say it’s the hand of the United Way bringing hope to people. But it helps signal that United Way is vibrant, exciting, colorful, positive and changing.
Saul Bass

Sabine Baring-Gould

Meghan Markle
Startups alternate between nostalgia for the garage and millennial longing for a lucrative exit. But what I always keep in mind is how disconnected and purposeless I felt before Redfin or my earlier startup, Plumtree. All I ever wanted was to get into a situation where I could win. Everybody has that dream.
Glenn Kelman
While many alternate reality stories ask, ‘What might have been?’ parallel universe stories literalize the war between good and evil that plays inside each of us every day.

My mantra is, ‘Don’t be afraid of color.’ What did it do to you? Do a color testing in alternate kinds of light you desire in the room because the pigment will change. And I refuse to believe that pale pale or white colors in a small room will buy you more square footage. Go with color all the way.
Bryan Batt
Both times I was in India, I could not get people to listen to each other. I had to literally tell people to listen to each other and tell them that they can’t get creative and find alternate solutions if they don’t listen to each other. There’s a lot of arguing and justifying.
Stephen Covey
I work out for an hour and a half every day, alternating between cardio and weights. I also do yoga for an hour every alternate day and swim every other day.

In the alternate reality where I wasn’t involved at all, and I’d been like, just, sweating my way through, trying to have a music career for years? And then my sibling had one and I wasn’t involved at all? I think I’d be very tortured by it. But the fact that we’ve had one in tandem makes a lot of sense.
I have different shoes for different types of climbing, six or seven different shoes that I alternate.

As a kid, I spent an awful lot of time pretending I was somebody else. I think growing up in the 1980s wasn’t very exciting so you kind of create this secret life of an alternate person. You pretend to be whatever you need to be that day, so you live in that dream world.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers
When you don’t have money for marketing, you explore alternate ways.
Vivek Agnihotri
