Berlin Airlift quotes by Paolo Gentiloni
#1. And a united Europe will also manage to send hundreds of thousands of migrants, who don't have the right to asylum, back to their homelands. Though that, given the number of flights necessary, would be of a scale reminiscent of the Berlin Airlift. #Quote by Paolo Gentiloni
Berlin Airlift quotes by Mary Landrieu
#2. Ronald Reagan will be remembered for leading the United States during a time of tremendous international transition - the demise of the Soviet Union, the Berlin Wall coming down, and the end of the Cold War. #Quote by Mary Landrieu
Berlin Airlift quotes by Christopher Isherwood
#3. From 1929 to 1933, [age 25-29] I lived almost continuously in Berlin, with only occasional visits to other parts of Germany and to England. Already, during that time, I had made up my mind that I would one day write about the people I'd met and the experiences I was having. So I kept a detailed diary, which in due course provided raw material for all my Berlin stories. [from preface] #Quote by Christopher Isherwood
Berlin Airlift quotes by Daniel Kehlmann
#4. Usually the German translators do something terrible, especially with Tom Wolfe, which is that they make it local. So if the characters are from Harlem, the translators put all this Berlin slang into their mouths, and that's just terrible. You cringe when you read that. But there really is no good solution to the problem, except learning English. #Quote by Daniel Kehlmann
Berlin Airlift quotes by Yanis Varoufakis
#5. There are few occasions in any argument where one side is completely right and the other comprehensively wrong. This is one of them. Jack Lew's Treasury was spot on and the German response utterly ludicrous. The US Treasury Department's underlying analysis was founded on basic macroeconomics that Berlin, and the Eurogroup (as I have personally witnessed), refuses to acknowledge. #Quote by Yanis Varoufakis
Berlin Airlift quotes by Joseph Brodsky
#6. A bird may twitter a better song.
But should you consider abortion wrong
or that the quacks ask too high a fee,
come to this wall, and see. #Quote by Joseph Brodsky
Berlin Airlift quotes by Lucia Berlin
#7. Sighs, the rhythms of our heartbeats, contractions of childbirth, orgasms, all flow into time just as pendulum clocks placed next to one another soon beat in unison. Fireflies in a tree flash on and off as one. The sun comes up and it goes down. The moon waxes and wanes and usually the morning paper hits the porch at six thirty-five. Time #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Lucia Berlin
#8. They drove along the empty road along gently rolling hills, fragrant and lush with flowers, pink, blue, magenta, red. Bursts of yellow and lavender. The hot, perfumed air enveloped the cab. Huge thunderclouds had formed and the light grew yellow, giving miles of flowers an iridescent luminosity. Larks and meadowlarks, red-winged blackbirds darted above the ditches by the road; the singing of birds rose above the sound of the truck. Maria leaned out the window, her damp head resting on her arms. It was only April, but the heavy Texas heat suffused her, the perfume of the flowers lulled like a drug. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Christopher Isherwood
#9. Berlin is a skeleton which aches in the cold: it is my own skeleton aching. I feel in my bones the sharp ache of the frost in the girders of the overhead railway, in the iron-work of balconies, in bridges, tramlines, lamp-standards, latrines. The iron throbs and shrinks, the stone and the bricks ache dully, the plaster is numb. #Quote by Christopher Isherwood
Berlin Airlift quotes by Lucia Berlin
#10. But Linda and Bob are good, old friends. I feel their warmth even though they aren't there. Come and blueberry jelly on the sheets. Racing forms and cigarette butts in the bathroom. Notes from Bob to Linda: "Buy some smokes and take the car ... dooh-dah dooh-dah." Drawings by Andrea with Love to Mom. Pizza crusts. I clean their coke mirror with Windex.

It is the only place I work that isn't spotless to begin with. It's filthy in fact, Every Wednesday I climb the stairs like Sisyphus into their living room where it always looks like they are in the middle of moving. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by David Bowie
#11. I couldn't have written things like 'Low' and 'Heroes,' those particular albums, if it hadn't have been for Berlin and the kind of atmosphere I felt there. #Quote by David Bowie
Berlin Airlift quotes by Adam Berlin
#12. She takes another sip of her drink. She looks around the bar. I look at the fine muscles in her neck, at the two points of her clavicle. Her grief has not so much changed her as stripped her down, stripped her body and her face. Maybe she should do what I do. She could stand next to me and the students could draw our lines. I order another bourbon, count the count. #Quote by Adam Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Richelle Mead
#13. You know what would help?" I asked, not meeting his eyes.
"If you turned off this crap music and put on something that came out after the Berlin Wall went down."
Dimitri laughted. "Your worst class is history, yet somehow, you know everything about Eastern Europe."
"Hey, gotta have material for my jokes, Comrade." Still smiling, he turned the radio dail. To a country station.
"Hey! This isn't what I had in mind," I exclaimed. I could tell he was on the verge of laughing again.
"Pick. It's one or the other."
I sighed. "Go back to the 1980s stuff."
He flipped the dail, and I crossed my arms over my chest as some vaguely European-sounding band sang about how video had killed the radio star. I wished someone would kill this radio. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Berlin Airlift quotes by Aleksandr Voinov
#14. Nobody else exists to me when he lands. Everything stops existing when he takes off, as if he takes it all with him when he goes up there, to places I'll never see again. That vast open non-place of emptiness that only becomes significant when his comrades are there, too, and of course the enemy fighters guarding the bombers bound for Berlin. #Quote by Aleksandr Voinov
Berlin Airlift quotes by Irmgard Keun
#15. And they would laugh at me. The dress was all sticking out around me and it was dark green with a pattern of animals with long tongues on it--and all the kids were laughing at me. And now I'm wearing a fur coat, and I'm in Berlin! And I would throw rocks at them and swear to myself that I would not be the kind that is laughed at, but that I would do the laughing. #Quote by Irmgard Keun
Berlin Airlift quotes by William L. Shirer
#16. Only then, after all these things had been accomplished within the first couple of hours of the coup, could the messages, which had been drawn up and filed, be sent out by radio, telephone and telegraph to the commanders of the Home Army in other cities and to the top generals commanding the troops at the front and in the occupied zones, announcing that Hitler was dead and that a new anti-Nazi government had been formed in Berlin. The revolt would have to be over - and achieved - within twenty-four hours and the new government firmly installed. Otherwise the vacillating generals might have second thoughts. Goering and Himmler might be able to rally them, and a civil war would ensue. In that case the fronts would cave in and the very chaos and collapse which the plotters wished to prevent would become inevitable. #Quote by William L. Shirer
Berlin Airlift quotes by Philip Kerr
#17. The fascination for me writing about crime in Berlin was the idea that there was this much bigger crime taking place in the background, a fantastically epochal moment in history which is just going on. That just sort of makes the whole thing have a greater resonance. #Quote by Philip Kerr
Berlin Airlift quotes by Anderson Cooper
#18. I graduated in 1989, and I'd focused almost entirely on the Soviet Union and communism ... so when the Berlin wall fell, I was, well, I was screwed. #Quote by Anderson Cooper
Berlin Airlift quotes by Martin Schulz
#19. The stubborn stance of some European governments on the refugee question is a reprisal less aimed at Angela Merkel or (Vice Chancellor) Sigmar Gabriel than at certain people on Wilhelmstrasse in Berlin. #Quote by Martin Schulz
Berlin Airlift quotes by Lucia Berlin
#20. I pity you. All your life you are going to be paralyzed by What Is Done, by what people tell you you should think or do... The best thing that could happen to you would be for you to be uncomfortable once in a while. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Jim Sanborn
#21. There are several really interesting clocks in Berlin. #Quote by Jim Sanborn
Berlin Airlift quotes by Marvin Hamlisch
#22. I was always drawn to Broadway musicals, and obviously composers like Gershwin, Rodgers, Berlin and Porter were writing music that I found wildly impressive. #Quote by Marvin Hamlisch
Berlin Airlift quotes by Lucia Berlin
#23. ...back to the USA where there is honor and integrity and Lord knows what else, I thought. I got confused. President Bush and Clarence Thomas and antiabortion and AIDS and Duke and crack and homelessness. And everywhere, MTV, cartoons ads, magazines--just war and sexism and violence. In Mexico, at least a can of cement falls off a scaffold on your head, no Uzis or anything personal. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Jerome Kern
#24. Irving Berlin has no place in American music
he is American music. #Quote by Jerome Kern
Berlin Airlift quotes by Lucia Berlin
#25. What if our bodies were transparent, like a washing machine window? How wondrous to watch ourselves. Joggers would job even harder, blood pumping away. Lovers would love more. God damn! Look at that old semen go! Diets would improve-- kiwi fruit and strawberries, borscht with sour cream. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Irving Berlin
#26. Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it. #Quote by Irving Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Isaiah Berlin
#27. The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. #Quote by Isaiah Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Albert Einstein
#28. Berlin is the place to which I am most closely bound by human and scientific ties. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Berlin Airlift quotes by Lucia Berlin
#29. The Campus laundry has a sign, like most laundries do, POSITIVELY NO DYEING. I drove all over town with a green bedspread until I came to Angel's with his yellow sign, YOU CAN DIE HERE ANYTIME. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by Lucia Berlin
#30. My sons have all grown now, so I'm down from five washers to one, but one takes just as long. #Quote by Lucia Berlin
Berlin Airlift quotes by John Boyne
#31. In his imagination he had thought that all the huts were full of happy families, some of whom sat outside on rocking chairs in the evening and told stories about how things were so much better when they were children and they'd had respect for their elders, not like the children nowadays. He thought that all the boys and girls who lived here would be in different groups, playing tennis or football, skipping and drawing out squares for hopscotch on the ground. He had thought that there would be a shop in the centre, and maybe a small café like the ones he had known in Berlin; he had wondered whether there would be a fruit and vegetable stalls. As it turned out, all the things that he thought might be there - weren't. #Quote by John Boyne
Berlin Airlift quotes by Luisa Weiss
#32. I couldn't will my beloved Berlin streets across the world or make the people I loved appear when I needed them, but by summoning the flavors of Berlin and the foods of my loved ones, my kitchen became my sanctuary, the stove my anchor.
Distance means nothing when your kitchen smells like home. #Quote by Luisa Weiss
Berlin Airlift quotes by Nina Hagen
#33. I create my own lyrics. I have a great band. I have a drummer from East Berlin. #Quote by Nina Hagen
Berlin Airlift quotes by Brian Malloy
#34. The halls are full of kids, scrawny ones and fat ones, cool ones and uncool ones, freaks and jocks, cheerleaders and dogs, burnouts and nerds. It's like Berlin, divided, except there are more walls in this city, and they're better guarded. #Quote by Brian Malloy
