#1. Beware: I'm unafraid to host a big spoiler party--a novel that can be truly "spoiled" by the summary of its plot is a novel that was already spoiled by that plot. - Author: James Wood
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by James Wood
#2. Frieda was very special," O'Keeffe recalls. "I can remember very clearly the first time I ever saw her, standing in a doorway, with her hair all frizzed out, wearing a cheap red calico dress that looked as though she'd just wiped out the frying pan with it. She was not thin, and not young, but there was something radiant and wonderful about her. - Author: Georgia O'Keeffe
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Georgia O'Keeffe

The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Blythe Danner
#6. And these years later, when I think of that essay, what I remember most is not the moment I saw my work in New Yorker font, not when I saw the illustration of my father, not the congratulatory phone calls and notes that followed, but that predawn morning in my bedroom, at my desk, the lights of cars below on Broadway, my computer screen glowing in the dark. - Author: Dani Shapiro
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Dani Shapiro
#7. I have no credentials. I have no money. I literally come from a poor place. I was a servant. I dropped out of college. The next thing you know I'm writing for the 'New Yorker,' I have this sort of life, and it must seem annoying to people. - Author: Jamaica Kincaid
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#8. In the high level cartoon world, my number one admired hero would be Chas Addams - really a top, top artist that the 'New Yorker' was lucky to find and employ. - Author: Peter Beard
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Peter Beard
#9. Dillinger is an epicure, serenely removed from such soft and bourgeois considerations as loyalty and disloyalty, and her only anxiety in life is to better herself aesthetically. - Author: The New Yorker
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by The New Yorker
#10. I'm not a reporter but the 'New Yorker' treats everyone like a reporter. - Author: David Sedaris
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by David Sedaris
#11. New York doesn't leave a lot of time for pondering forks in the road. People who have paused to gather their wits often find themselves suddenly waking up in a cookie-cutter beige apartment in Hoboken. I will not ever leave New York. I don't know how long it takes to become a true New Yorker, but I assume that if I die here ... that would qualify me. - Author: Josh Kilmer-Purcell
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
#12. As nearly as possible in the spirit of Matthew Salinger, age one, urging a luncheon companion to accept a cool lima bean, I urge my editor, mentor and (heaven help him) closest friend, William Shawn, genius domus of The New Yorker, lover of the long shot, protector of the unprolific, defender of the hopelessly flamboyant, most unreasonably modest of born great artist-editors to accept this pretty skimpy-looking book. - Author: J.D. Salinger
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by J.D. Salinger
#13. Life is a campus: in a Greenwich Village bookstore, looking for a New Yorker collection, I asked of an earnest-looking assistant where I might find the humour section. Peering over her granny glasses, she enquired, Humour studies would that be, sir? - Author: Keith Waterhouse
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Keith Waterhouse
#14. At first, writing for The New Yorker was very scary to me. I couldn't imagine anything that I would write in that typeface.
- Author: David Sedaris
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by David Sedaris
#15. The New York of the plays, the movies, the books; the New York of The New Yorker and Vanity Fair and Vogue. It was a beacon, a spire, a beacon on top of a spire. A light, always glowing from afar, visible even from the cornfields of Iowa, the foothills of the Dakotas, the deserts of California. The swamps of Louisiana. Beckoning, always beckoning. Summoning the discontented, seducing the dreamers. Those whose blood ran too hot, and too quickly, causing them to look about at their placid families, their staid neighbors, the graves of their slumbering ancestors and say - I'm different. I'm special. I'm more. They all came to New York. - Author: Melanie Benjamin
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Melanie Benjamin
#16. I see it for what is is, now. It is a house built on ashes. Ashes of the life Granddad shared with Gran, ashes of the maple from which the tire swing flew, ashes of the old Victorian house with the porch and the hammock. The new house is built on the grave of all the trophies and symbols of the family: the New Yorker cartoons, the taxidermy, the embroidered pillows, the family portraits. - Author: E. Lockhart
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by E. Lockhart
#17. It was actually an Israeli cartoonist, Nurit Karlin, who made me think that I could draw for 'The New Yorker.' I saw her work published in the magazine in the early 1970s - she was the only woman working as a cartoonist at 'The New Yorker' at the time. - Author: Liza Donnelly
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Liza Donnelly
#18. You can do what you like, sir, but I'll tell you this. New York is the true capital of America. Every New Yorker knows it, and by God, we always shall. - Author: Edward Rutherfurd
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Edward Rutherfurd
#19. Surely the Board knows what democracy is. It is the line that forms on the right. It is the don't in don't shove. It is the hole in the stuffed shirt through which the sawdust slowly trickles; it is the dent in the high hat. Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half the people
are right more than half the time. It is the feeling of privacy in the voting booths,the feeling of communion in the libraries, the feeling of vitality everywhere. Democracy is a letter to the editor. Democracy is the score at the beginning of the ninth. It is an idea which hasn't been disproved yet, a song the words of which have not gone bad. It's the mustard on the hot dog and the cream in the rationed coffee. - Author: E.B. White
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by E.B. White
#20. The agent sighed. „Mr. Little, do you know why horror novels usually revolve around the protagonist and his family?"
Ben didn't encourage him. It turned out the New Yorker didn't need it.
„Because horror is at its best when the stakes are intimate. There are no higher stakes than the people you love. - Author: David Jacob Knight
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by David Jacob Knight
#21. I'm an urban New Yorker to the last molecule. - Author: Robert Silverberg
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Robert Silverberg
#22. A community of seriously hip observers is a scary and depressing thing. - Author: J.D. Salinger
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by J.D. Salinger
#23. I knew I didn't want to come out in the 'New Yorker'; it just felt wrong. It needed an African conversation. - Author: Binyavanga Wainaina
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Binyavanga Wainaina

The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by V.S. Pritchett
#25. As James Surowiecki noted in a New Yorker article, given a choice between developing antibiotics that people will take every day for two weeks and antidepressants that people will take every day for ever, drug companies not surprisingly opt for the latter. Although a few antibiotics have been toughened up a bit, the pharmaceutical industry hasn't given us an entirely new antibiotic since the 1970s. - Author: Bill Bryson
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Bill Bryson
#26. I'll show Luke I can fit into the city. I'll show him I can be a true New Yorker. I'll go the gym, and then I'll eat a bagel, and I'll ... shoot someone, maybe?
Or maybe just the gym will be enough. - Author: Sophie Kinsella
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Sophie Kinsella
#27. I lived in New York my whole life. Like every New Yorker, I have stories about spending summers on the Jersey shore, riding the roller coaster in Seaside that is now famous for that sickening photo of it being washed out to sea. - Author: Marissa Jaret Winokur
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Marissa Jaret Winokur
#28. Have so many merry little pots bubbling away in the fire of my enthusiasm: Myron, future trips, modern poetry, Yeats, Sitwell, T. S. Eliot, W. H. Auden, villanelles, maybe Mlle, maybe The New Yorker or The Atlantic (poems sent out make blind hope spring eternal - even if rejections are immanent), spring: biking, breathing, sunning, tanning. All so lovely and potential. - Author: Sylvia Plath
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Sylvia Plath
#29. I've got a better idea," says my mother. "Tell me about what you did today. Tell me about New York." So I do, I tell the lifelong New Yorker who chucked it for the woods about the streets of the city: how the subway was so crowded this morning I had to let four trains pass in a row and I was a half hour late to work; how I had a meeting in Times Square and I saw an army of painted topless women posing with tourists for money; how I saw two people dressed up as Disney characters get into a fistfight; how I ate a hot dog from a stand after my client meeting bombed and when I finished it I ate another, on one of the chairs scattered in Bryant Park. A string quartet was playing nearby, under a sponsor banner. "The music part was the part that saved me," I say. "All of it would have saved me," says my mother. - Author: Jami Attenberg
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Jami Attenberg
#30. Publication in 'The New Yorker' meant everything, and it's no exaggeration to say that it changed my life. - Author: Daniel Alarcon
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Daniel Alarcon
#31. Feeling is taboo, especially in New York. I read in some little magazine the other day that The New Yorker and The New York Times were sclerotic, meaning, "completely turned to rock." The critics here are that way. - Author: James Purdy
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by James Purdy
#32. I placed some of the DNA on the ends of my fingers and rubbed them together. The stuff was sticky. It began to dissolve on my skin. 'It's melting
like cotton candy.'
'Sure. That's the sugar in the DNA,' Smith said.
'Would it taste sweet?'
'No. DNA is an acid, and it's got salts in it. Actually, I've never tasted it.'
Later, I got some dried calf DNA. I placed a bit of the fluff on my tongue. It melted into a gluey ooze that stuck to the roof of my mouth in a blob. The blob felt slippery on my tongue, and the taste of pure DNA appeared. It had a soft taste, unsweet, rather bland, with a touch of acid and a hint of salt. Perhaps like the earth's primordial sea. It faded away.
Page 67, in Richard Preston's biographical essay on Craig Venter, "The Genome Warrior" (originally published in The New Yorker in 2000). - Author: Timothy Ferris
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Timothy Ferris
#33. My confidence that there is a loving God who cares at all for your health or your longevity, based on what I see in the physical universe, is so low that it's not something that I would spend any time investing in, to try to explore any further about whether or not it's true. I'll let other people do that exploring."

Read in the New Yorker, sometime in March, 2015 - Author: Neil DeGrasse Tyson
The New Yorker Vol Xci quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#34. To be a New Yorker is to be away from the city and feel like you are missing something - Author: Bill Hayes
