The actor Richard Burton once wrote an article for the New York Times about his experience playing the role of Winston Churchill in a television drama:
"In the course of preparing myself ... I realized afresh that I hate Churchill and all of his kind. I hate them virulently. They have stalked down the corridors of endless power all through history ... What man of sanity would say on hearing of the atrocities committed by the Japanese against British and Anzac prisoners of war, 'We shall wipe them out, everyone of them, men, women, and children. There shall not be a Japanese left on the face of the earth? Such simple
minded cravings for revenge leave me with a horrified but reluctant awe for such single
minded and merciless ferocity."
~ Richard Francis Burton
Proskauer New York quotes by Richard Francis Burton
I love a lot of the New York bands, but Patti Smith stands out. I just read 'Just Kids' and it's an inspirational, well-written account of an emerging New York artist in the late seventies. ~ James Iha
Proskauer New York quotes by James Iha
Living too long in New York does that to a girl, gives her the false sense that the world is full of interesting people. Or at least people who are crazy in an interesting way. At ~ Maria Semple
Proskauer New York quotes by Maria Semple
I don't know why the publishers in New York don't take a tip from Hollywood and just publish the outlines of novels rather than the completed books. Let the audience use their imaginations, as my Maw always says about radio. I would much prefer to read an outline of War and Peace than slog through eight hundred thousand words. Why do I need Tolstoy to describe snow? I can imagine snow, whether Russian snow or just regular snow. But book publishers seem to think that the authors should do all the work, and the readers should be waited on hand-and-foot like a buncha goddamn prima donnas. ~ Gary Reilly
Proskauer New York quotes by Gary Reilly
You meet a lot of people in New York who are different than you, and have different stories, so I see everyone as super individual. ~ Frankie Cosmos
Proskauer New York quotes by Frankie Cosmos
Ten years have passed and every day that I walk throughout the city, I feel honored to be a part of it - and atom in the blood of a beating heart belonging to the most wonderfully diverse, smart, creative, passionate being. ~ Melisa Singh
Proskauer New York quotes by Melisa Singh
There are hundreds of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings around the United States and in other countries, too. Wright lived into his 90s, and one of his most famous buildings, the Guggenheim Museum in New York, was completed just before his death. Wright buildings look like Wright buildings - that is their paradox. ~ Jane Smiley
Proskauer New York quotes by Jane Smiley
I was a good amateur but only an average professional. I soon realized that there was a limit to how far I could rise in the music business, so I left the band and enrolled at New York University. ~ Alan Greenspan
Proskauer New York quotes by Alan Greenspan
I love New York. But the energy is so intense. ~ John Galliano
Proskauer New York quotes by John Galliano
My father emigrated from Lithuania to the United States at the age of 12. He received his higher education in New York City and graduated in 1914 from the New York University School of Dentistry. My mother came at the age of 14 from a part of Russia which, after the war, became Poland; she was only 19 when she was married to my father. ~ Gertrude B. Elion
Proskauer New York quotes by Gertrude B. Elion
There is a certain type of person who just won't be happy unless she lives in New York at least once in her life. ~ Lorna Graham
Proskauer New York quotes by Lorna Graham
I've got my Motown girl-group music playing, and my supplies are laid out all around me in a semicircle. My heart hole punch, pages and pages of scrapbook paper, pictures I've cut out of magazines, glue gun, my tape dispenser with all my different colored washi tapes. Souvenirs like the playbill from when we saw Wicked in New York, receipts, pictures. Ribbon, buttons, stickers, charms. A good scrapbook has texture. It's thick and chunky and doesn't close all the way. ~ Jenny Han
Proskauer New York quotes by Jenny Han
I fell into writing, I suppose, being one of those awful children who wrote verses. I went to a convent in New York-the Blessed Sacrament ... I was fired from there, finally, for a lot of things, among them my insistence that the Immaculate Conception was spontaneous combustion. ~ Dorothy Parker
Proskauer New York quotes by Dorothy Parker
Living in New York is like being at some terrible late-night party. You're tired, you've had a headache since you arrived, but you can't leave because then you'd miss the party. ~ Simon Hoggart
Proskauer New York quotes by Simon Hoggart
The first time I landed in New York and got a cab to my hotel, I was completely struck by it: a feeling of life and chaos, 24 hours around the clock, just like in London. And whatever your problem is, it's insignificant. You're just a small part of something very big. ~ America Ferrera
Proskauer New York quotes by America Ferrera
I used to go to church. I even went through a rather intense religious period when I was sixteen. But the idea of an everlasting life
a never-ending banquet, as a stupid visiting minister to our church once appallingly described it
filled me with a greater terror than the concept of extinction ... ~ Louis Auchincloss
Proskauer New York quotes by Louis Auchincloss
I prayed to a mystery.
Sometimes I was simply aware of the mystery. I saw a flash of it during a trip to New York that David and I took before we were married. We were walking on a busy sidewalk in Manhattan. I don't remember if it was day or night. A man with a wound on his forehead came toward us. His damp, ragged hair might have been clotted with blood, or maybe it was only dirt. He wore deeply dirty clothes. His red, swollen hands, cupped in half-fists, swung loosely at his sides. His eyes were focused somewhere past my right shoulder. He staggered while he walked. The sidewalk traffic flowed around him and with him. He was strange and frightening, and at the same time he belonged on the Manhattan sidewalk as much as any of us. It was that paradox -- that he could be both alien and resident, both brutalized and human, that he could stand out in the moving mass of people like a sea monster in a school of tuna and at the same time be as much at home as any of us -- that stayed with me. I never saw him again, but I remember him often, and when I do, I am aware of the mystery.
Years later, I was out on our property on the Olympic Peninsula, cutting a path through the woods. This was before our house was built. After chopping through dense salal and hacking off ironwood bushes for an hour or so, I stopped, exhausted. I found myself standing motionless, intensely aware of all of the life around me, the breathing moss, the chattering birds, the living earth. I was as m ~ Margaret D. McGee
Proskauer New York quotes by Margaret D. McGee
There was a telemarketing job one summer in high school that I was rejected for. I still walk by the building that I actually had the interview in. It's still in New York, and I always think about that job and why I didn't get it. ~ Noah Baumbach
Proskauer New York quotes by Noah Baumbach
You may be big in New York, but in Walters, Oklahoma, you're nobody. ~ Abe Lemons
Proskauer New York quotes by Abe Lemons
Research conducted by the Corporation for Supportive Housing in New York State shows that the use of state prisons and city jails dropped by 74 percent and 40 percent respectively when people with past criminal records were provided with supportive housing. ~ Michelle Alexander
Proskauer New York quotes by Michelle Alexander
Long time ago, I was going to be a New York cop, then got involved with this girl who was into acting, then got bit by the acting bug myself. ~ Erik Estrada
Proskauer New York quotes by Erik Estrada
I probably have to move out of New York. I just can't live in New York anymore. ~ Alec Baldwin
Proskauer New York quotes by Alec Baldwin
I spend more time in New York than the Dominican. I play here, I live here, so why not become a citizen? ~ Robinson Cano
Proskauer New York quotes by Robinson Cano
He led quite a great life, ... He was an Old Testament figure railing against the establishment - a Jewish guy from New York who became a Buddhist, a poet, a musician. ~ Tom Hayden
Proskauer New York quotes by Tom Hayden
There have been two [career highlights]. Waking up in New York to hear I'd been nominated for Best Actor for a Tony Award on Broadway, for An Ideal Husband. The other one was waking up the morning after the opening night of A Man For All Seasons and reading the reviews. ~ Martin Shaw
Proskauer New York quotes by Martin Shaw
Delores! Hey Dee - you awake?" Because this is New York City, a neighbor immediately yells back, "We're all awake now, asshole! ~ Emma Chase
Proskauer New York quotes by Emma Chase
You're serious."
"As serious as an accountant at an IRS audit."
His face closed off, reminding her of the ruthlessness she had first noticed about him on the front steps. "You have no business opening a restaurant."
"Says who?"
"Says the guy who watched you try to extricate yourself from a burger suit with a knife."
Her mouth fell open. "Burger suits and restaurants are two different kettles of fish."
"Kettles of fish? Now there's great business terminology."
"Yep, Texas style."
"You're in New York, sweetheart."
"I am not your sweetheart, thank my lucky stars."
"Another of your quaint Texas sayings? What was the last one I heard you use? 'Bless your heart'?"
She sliced him a tooth-grinding smile. "While you might not like them, you can bet your backside that a cafe that serves the kind of fare we create in Texas would have people lined up around the corner. Or, as we say in Texas, till the cows come home. ~ Linda Francis Lee
Proskauer New York quotes by Linda Francis Lee
People often assume New York City is no place to keep a dog. This is certainly what my parents told me when I was growing up there. But I have found this not to be the case at all. ~ Jill Abramson
Proskauer New York quotes by Jill Abramson
There's a reason why kings built large palaces, sat on thrones and wore rubies all over. There's a whole social need for that, not to oppress the masses, but to impress the masses and make them proud and allow them to feel good about their culture, their government and their ruler so that they are left feeling that a ruler has the right to rule over them, so that they feel good rather than disgusted about being ruled. - George Lucas, New York Times, 1999 ~ David Brin
Proskauer New York quotes by David Brin
I've liked the Yankees since I was a kid. I grew up in Canada so I kind of identified with New York sports teams. ~ Ian Astbury
Proskauer New York quotes by Ian Astbury
I was so urban-centric once. I did not want to see a patch of grass. I did not want to look at a tree. I didn't want to be anywhere near a sparrow, or a squirrel, or a pigeon, because I just wanted to be consumed by the asphalt-jungle aspect of New York. ~ Carlos Dengler
Proskauer New York quotes by Carlos Dengler
On a grander scale, the New York Public library - and in fact the entire U.S. Library system - was founded and funded by those who relentlessly pursued money. ~ Mike Cernovich
Proskauer New York quotes by Mike Cernovich
[ New York ] is a place that worships incompetence particularly if it's combined with energy and paranoid self-confidence. Only in a city like New York could Truman Capote have made it, or John Simon. ~ Gore Vidal
Proskauer New York quotes by Gore Vidal
For most visitors to Manhattan, both foreign and domestic, New York is the Shrine of the Good Time. "I don't see how you stand it," they often say to the native New Yorker who has been sitting up past his bedtime for a week in an attempt to tire his guest out. "It's all right for a week or so, but give me the little old home town when it comes to living." And, under his breath, the New Yorker endorses the transfer and wonders himself how he stands it. ~ Robert Benchley
Proskauer New York quotes by Robert Benchley
New york provides not only a continuing excitation but also a spectacle that is continuing. ~ E.B. White
Proskauer New York quotes by E.B. White
The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, A History of Nazi Germany, by William L. Shirer, Simon and Schuster, 1960, New York; Hitler, a Study in Tyranny, by Alan Bullock, Harper, 1953, New York; ~ Philip K. Dick
Proskauer New York quotes by Philip K. Dick
I went to UCLA for a year and a quarter. There were too many students at UCLA interested in what I was interested in, and they couldn't accommodate all of us. I wasn't allowed to take voice or dance, only theater and acting. So I saved my money and, at 19, moved to New York. ~ Casey Nicholaw
Proskauer New York quotes by Casey Nicholaw
I value my correspondence with writers ... I was in New York and had lunch with Oliver Sachs and compared notes with him - he is someone I really like. I love staying in written correspondence with some writers. That's enough for me. ~ Alan Lightman
Proskauer New York quotes by Alan Lightman
Directors didn't know what to do with me in college. I didn't really sound like a belter. I didn't look like a soprano. But in New York, I was in the right place at the right time, where my unusualness fit the bill. ~ Jessie Mueller
Proskauer New York quotes by Jessie Mueller
I've played some gangster roles, but that's obviously not me. When you're an Italian-American New York actor, it's just an easy way to get cast. ~ Michael Imperioli
Proskauer New York quotes by Michael Imperioli
Silicon Valley has been a technology capital like New York is a financial capital. ~ Bill Maris
Proskauer New York quotes by Bill Maris
Having Black hair is unique in that Black women change up styles a lot. You can walk down one street block in New York City and see 10 different hairstyles that Black women are wearing: straight curls, short cuts, braids - we really run the gamut. ~ Queen Latifah
Proskauer New York quotes by Queen Latifah
If everyone in New York took sides over these petty, insignificant arguments, no one would have any friends at all. ~ Candace Bushnell
Proskauer New York quotes by Candace Bushnell
I can change my plans. But I can't change my family. ~ Holly Smale
