I am at a climbing area called the Wendenstock in Switzerland. This area has some of the best quality multi-pitch climbing I have seen on limestone. There is about a two-hour approach on one of the steepest grass slopes I have ever seen. The setting is amazing.
Tommy Caldwell
Indian films have this obsession with hygienic clean spaces, even though the country’s not so clean. They’re either shot in the studios or shot in London, in America, in Switzerland – clean places. Everywhere except India.

Martina Hingis

I’m from Switzerland, so I grew up with great chocolate.
Daniel Humm

Norman Granz
The fiesta of soccer, a feast for the legs that play and the eyes that watch, is much more than a big business run by overlords from Switzerland. The most popular sport in the world wants to serve the people who embrace it.

Stephan Lichtsteiner
I was born in South Africa during apartheid, a system of laws that made it illegal for people to mix in South Africa. And this was obviously awkward because I grew up in a mixed family. My mother’s a black woman, South African Xhosa woman… and my father’s Swiss, from Switzerland.
Trevor Noah
The seasons had always been a part of the way I cooked and ate in Switzerland, and they again became what guided me in New York.
Daniel Humm
I moved to Switzerland when I was 8, and during our breaks, we’d go to snowboard, and he’d take me to the mountains; we’d take a train. It was kind of crazy, you know. When I think about it, I wake up at 4, take a train to the mountains, sleep in the train and then go snowboard, and then come back. It was quite a mission.
Chloe Kim
I grew up partially in Switzerland but mostly in Australia. I lived in Kakadu for a short time – it’s an Aboriginal community. My best friend growing up was Aboriginal. She taught me so much.
Isabel Lucas
I remember Agassi playing Federer in Basel, Switzerland in 1998, and Andre was already saying at that time that Federer would be tough. Usually at the time players are 17, you can see if they will be great.

I have a lot of fans in places like Germany, Switzerland and Austria, and I spend a lot of time there.

Switzerland felt incredibly narrow, growing up. It was good, in a way. There were so many museums. But it was always a no-brainer that I would have to leave, and I’m grateful for that.
Hans-Ulrich Obrist
I was born in New York but grew up between Switzerland, where my mom is from, and Tunisia, where my dad is from. Now I live in the East Village in New York, in the same building where my parents lived when I was born, so I’ve come full circle in my life.
Suleika Jaouad
Roy Hodgson is a fantastic coach. I first knew him when I was playing in Switzerland and he was national team coach. It was under him that Switzerland revolutionised their player formation system.
Joachim Low
My main place is in Switzerland, but I live on a plane, really.
Christopher Lambert
I was born in Switzerland. Everyone thinks I’m Swiss, but I’m actually German. I’m from Germany. It’s a small country. You don’t have as many great actors there, of course.
Baran bo Odar
So far, therefore, as we can draw safe conclusions from a single specimen, there has been no marked change of race in the human population of Switzerland during the periods above considered.
Charles Lyell
In the ’90s, there was a big wrestling boom in Switzerland with Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, and all those guys. It was on television in Switzerland on a German TV station for a year or so. That’s when I saw wrestling for the first time. I was in the fifth or sixth grade and was a fan of it right away.
I grew up in Switzerland, in this kind of rigidity. It was Protestant, and I was rather shy. That influenced me a lot.

I look upon Switzerland as an inferior sort of Scotland.
Sydney Smith
I’ve been to a lot of places while touring, but I’d have to say Switzerland was my favorite.
Drake Bell
I’ve never had a bank account in Switzerland since 1984. Why would the Swiss do this to me? Maybe the Swiss are trying to divert attention from the Holocaust gold scandal.
Benazir Bhutto
We have so many rich people in Switzerland. They should take more responsibility for the general public. There is almost no tradition of philanthropy here anymore, unlike in the U.S.
Hansjorg Wyss
I’ve always wanted to go to Switzerland to see what the army does with those wee red knives.
Billy Connolly
President Obama and I disagree on policy with Israel. He seems to say… ‘We want peace, but we want to act like Switzerland. We’re going to be a neutral party to everyone.’ I think that’s negotiating from weakness.
James Lankford
If I go to someplace like Switzerland, I find a lot of uptight people because they’re living amongst so much beauty; there’s no urgency in trying to find the beauty within themselves. If you’re stuck in New York, you have to somehow look within yourself – otherwise, you’d go crackers.
George Harrison
Norway or Switzerland are two marvelous countries, I very much admire, the most advanced countries in the world in fact with great qualities of life.
Jose Manuel Barroso
I was born in Belgium. I went to school in England and in Switzerland, then I came to America, so I really feel like I am a citizen of the world.

Jammu and Kashmir has a scenic beauty and I feel that the film industry rather than going abroad in countries like Switzerland and Australia, should visit Kashmir – which is the only Heaven on Earth for the shoots.
Raza Murad
Coorg will be the new Switzerland, Goa will be the new Thailand. If we predict these trends correctly, while market size may shrink, we will have a good opportunity to use our model.
Ritesh Agarwal
German is more familiar now since I live part of the year in Rome and part in the German part of Switzerland. But it’s not difficult to sing in German; it’s difficult to feel in German. This takes time. It’s a culture.
Cecilia Bartoli
I guess I’m kind of a mutt. I was born in the U.S., my parents are from Mexico, and I grew up in Switzerland. It’s weird because I sound American, but I spell theater ‘theatre’ with the ‘r’ before the ‘e’.
Roberto Aguire
In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love, they had 500 years of democracy and peace – and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.
Graham Greene
