Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by H.W. Brands
#1. William "Boss" Tweed was in such thorough control in New York that he made money off of the report the committee printed after investigating him. #Quote by H.W. Brands
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Christopher L. Hayes
#2. More than one-third of congressional staffers turn to a career in lobbying after leaving Capitol Hill. It's clear the staffer-turned-lobbyist's value to special interests depends on the robustness of his or her network on Capitol Hill. According to an August 2010 study, when a lobbyist's former boss on Capitol Hill left office, the lobbyist's salary declined by an average of 50 percent in the six months following the departure.27 Moving from Capitol Hill to K Street isn't limited to staffers: In 2010, 37 percent of the newly out-of-office members of Congress went to work for lobbying firms or clients. After losing his run for Senate in 2006, Tennessee Democrat Harold Ford Jr. moved to New York to take a job with Merrill Lynch with a guaranteed annual compensation of $2 million. At the time he had no experience in finance. What he was paid for were his networks: #Quote by Christopher L. Hayes
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Jon Wiederhorn
#3. When we were recording the Ozzmosis album we did a batch of it in New York. There was this occult bookstore...and they had everything in there on Wicca, Catholicism, Satanism, the whole nine yards. I was getting some Aleister Crowley stuff because Jimmy Page owned the castle (Crowley's former home) and the other guys were into him. ...I go to get his poster they had in there, I go "How much for this poster?" and the guy looks at me deadpan and goes "$6.66." I put seven bucks down and say "Keep the goddamn change. I can't take it, dude." So I hang the poster up and the boss man (Ozzy) walks in and he goes "Zakk, who's the guy upon the wall?" . I'm crying laughing and he goes "Zakk, who the fuck is he?!" I said "Ozz, you don't know who that is?" He goes "I don't fucking know, who is it?!" I said "Ozz! It's Aleister Crowley, bro!" He goes "Oh is that what that bald-headed cunt looks like? #Quote by Jon Wiederhorn
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Vincente Minnelli
#4. West Side Story was terribly important because of the style of the dancing and the gangs of New York. #Quote by Vincente Minnelli
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Jose Parla
#5. As a young kid I was in love with breakdancing. I practiced the uprock style, which is a battle style of dance that looks like fighting. It comes from the gangs in New York in the 1960s and '70s. It's beautiful, almost like a martial art, and it can be funny, too, because you make fun of each other. #Quote by Jose Parla
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#6. In your dread of dictators you established a state of society in which every ward boss is a dictator, every financier a dictator, every private employer a dictator, all with the livelihood of the workers at their mercy, and no public responsibility. And to symbolize this state of things, this defeat of all government, you have set up in New York Harbour a monstrous idol which you call Liberty. The only thing that remains to complete this monument is to put on its pedestal the inscription written by Dante on the gate of Hell 'All hope abandon, ye who enter here. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Adam Langer
#7. I was wondering how Ms. Hetley, who seemed to occupy just about every slot on the New York Times hardback, paperback, and e-book bestseller lists, had managed to wring eight five-hundred-page installments out of the concept of wars between rival gangs of vampires and wizards when it seemed obvious to me that all a wizard would have to do to kick a vampire's ass was pounce on it during the day while it was sleeping. How could anyone take this stuff seriously, I wondered. Hetley's graphic depictions of wizard-on-vampire sex, which was creating a bloodthirsty, mutant race of evil, soulless 'vampards', seemed absurd. #Quote by Adam Langer
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by V. Theia
#8. Dominic, with the powerful aura, got under my skin before I had a chance to ward him off and now I'm screwed.

Even more now I know his taste and how hard he feels against the soft, wet parts of me.

Dominic just introduced me to the most dangerous man in New York.

Fuck. Fuck. Clarity pours over me.

Does this mean Dominic is a member of the mafia after all?

Only it wasn't only a little kiss, was it? I'm sexually frustrated and Dom is standing there with his hands in his tailored pants pockets, aroused.

The bulge is unmistakable.


God, I'm wet too. If I rub my thighs together, I'll feel how much. He's hard, I'm wet… it's a match made in heaven.

"Gabriella…" he says again, thick and tarnished as I look him up and down.


"I said you're too far away," he murmurs, cutting his dark gaze my way. Stirring me. "Come here to me, cara." he hooks two fingers with a motion and smirks like a devil with the key to all my desires. I swear my belly bottoms out as my feet carry me forward. Unable to refuse the invisible rope he has around my waist, pulling me closer.

"Bossy aren't you?"
"I am your boss."
"I don't think you want to remind me of that."

He hums and the rumble hurtles down between my thighs.

How does he do that? Turn me on with just a noise.

"I guess you'd like it if I called you sir, wouldn' #Quote by V. Theia
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Charlie Day
#9. I waited tables in New York, and when you're in that line of work, you often have a horrible boss. #Quote by Charlie Day
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Jack Kerouac
#10. It would take me all night to tell about Old Bull Lee; let's just say now, he was a teacher, and it may be said that he had every right to teach because he spent all his time learning; and the things he learned were what he considered to be and called "the facts of life," which he learned, not only out of necessity but because he wanted to. He dragged his long, thin body around the entire United States and most of Europe and North Africa in his time, only to see what was going on.... there are pictures of him with the international cocaine set of the thirties - gangs with wild hair, leaning on one another, there are other pictures of him in a Panama hat, surveying the streets of Algiers.... He was an exterminator in Chicago, a bartender in New York, a summons-server in Newark. In Paris he sat at cafe tables, watching the sullen French faces go by. In Athens he looked up from his ouzo at what he called the ugliest people in the world. In Istanbul he threaded his way through crowds of opium addicts and rug-sellers, looking for the facts. In Chicago he planned to hold up a Turkish bath, hesitated just for two minutes too long for a drink, and, wound up with two dollars and had to make a run for it. He did all these things merely for the experience.... #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Douglas Booth
#11. When I do my own wardrobe, I try to wear a designer from each of the countries I'm visiting: Tom Ford for New York, Hugo Boss for Germany, Burberry for England. #Quote by Douglas Booth
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#12. I think fear neutralizes alcohol, weakens its anesthetic power. It's good for small fears; your boss, your wife, your bills, your dentist; all right then to take a drink. But for big ones it doesn't do any good. Like water on blazing gasoline, it will only quicken and compound it. It takes sand, in the literal and the slang sense, to smother the bonfire that is fear. And if you're out of sand, then you must burn up.
("New York Blues") #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Carter F. Smith
#13. The first gang members who joined the military were known as the Hounds, a group of former New York gang members. #Quote by Carter F. Smith
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Andrew Cuomo
#14. New York State is upside down and backwards; high taxes and low performance. The New York State government was at one time a national model. Now, unfortunately, it's a national disgrace. Sometimes, the corruption in Albany could even make Boss Tweed blush. #Quote by Andrew Cuomo
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Stephen Graham
#15. I did 'Gangs of New York' with Martin Scorsese, and they used to call me 'Little Joe Pesci' on the set. #Quote by Stephen Graham
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Kelly Moran
#16. He looked longingly out the window at the towering skyline of New York City and thought about jumping. It would hurt less than following orders. #Quote by Kelly Moran
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Erik Von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
#17. The world, however, is indebted to Germany in a terrifying way, because she demonstrated to everyone what the ultimate conclusions of negative and destructive ideas really are. Ideas which in London or New York are repeated as seemingly harmless abstractions have been shown up by the Germans in all their blood-chilling finality. In this sense Nazi Germany has become the Gorgonian Mirror in which a decadent West could study its own features. #Quote by Erik Von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Martin Nolan
#18. One cardinal rule of American journalism is that The New York Times Sunday Magazine is a chore, a bore, and a penance to be endured. #Quote by Martin Nolan
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Nelson Algren
#19. The less he sees of other writers the more of a writer he will ultimately become. When he sees scarcely anyone except other writers, he is ready for New York. #Quote by Nelson Algren
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Thom Mayne
#20. New York is this cacophony - a collection of radical differences, an agreement of non sequiturs. The diversity and intensity are startling. #Quote by Thom Mayne
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Jonas Mekas
#21. Since 1950 I have been keeping a film diary. I have been walking around with my Bolex and reacting to the immediate reality: situations, friends, New York, seasons of the year. On some days I shoot ten frames, on others ten seconds, still on others ten minutes. Or I shoot nothing. Walden contains material from the years 1964-1968 strung together in chronological order. #Quote by Jonas Mekas
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Owen Wilson
#22. I always think about Katharine Graham - she was the publisher of The Washington Post. In her autobiography she talks about the way her parents met. Her father was, I think, in New York just walking by on his way home and looked into a store and saw the lady that became his wife. It was just pure luck. And she said that it once again reminds her of the role that luck and chance play in our life. I really believe that, too. #Quote by Owen Wilson
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Jason Calacanis
#23. After Sept. 11, New York wasn't the same, and that's part of the reason why I left. #Quote by Jason Calacanis
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Zoe Kravitz
#24. I like to wear shoes that are cool but also practical. The same goes for bags. Your bag is a big deal in New York. You can't just carry around a little clutch, because you don't have a car or anywhere to stash things during the day, so you need to carry your whole life with you. That's why I like big, chunky bags with lots of compartments. #Quote by Zoe Kravitz
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Alexander Chee
#25. When writers in New York complained they could not write after 9/11, it seemed to me they were frozen by writing for that audience, by writing for the missing. Who we all felt, somehow, were watching. Waiting to see if we were worthy of being alive when they were dead. Waiting to see the stories we would tell about the life they would no longer have among us - waiting to see if it was worth it. #Quote by Alexander Chee
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Bill Milkowski
#26. With his new CD 'Tactiles' Liberty Ellman emerges as one of the most intriguing, albeit unorthodox, guitarists on the New York scene today. An album of original, esoteric compositions marked by dense polyrhythms, dissonant, angular lines and an organic logic that ties the whole thing together in brilliant fashion ... #Quote by Bill Milkowski
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Rebecca Stead
#27. I try to remember what it was like to be a kid in New York. I lived in different parts of my childhood in Manhattan on the Upper West Side, where 'When You Reach Me' is set, and also in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. #Quote by Rebecca Stead
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Joseph Brodsky
#28. Why, then, do you go there at such a season?" my editor asked me once, sitting in a Chinese restaurant in New York, with his gay English charges. "Yes, why do you ?" they echoed their prospective benefactor. "What is it like there in winter ?" I thought of telling them about acqua alta; about the various shades of gray in the window as one sits for breakfast in one's hotel, enveloped by silence and the mealy morning pall of newlyweds' faces; about pigeons accentuating every curve and cornice of the local Baroque in their dormant affinity for architecture; about a lonely monument to Francesco Querini and his two huskies carved out of Istrian stone, similar, I think, in its hue, to what he saw last, dying, on his ill-fated journey to the North Pole, now listening to the Giardini's rustle of evergreens in the company of Wagner and Carducci; about a brave sparrow perching on the bobbing blade of a gondola against the backdrop of a sirocco-roiled damp infinity. No, I thought, looking at their effete but eager faces; no, they won't do. "Well, I said, "it's like Greta Garbo swimming. #Quote by Joseph Brodsky
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Mark Feuerstein
#29. Well, first of all, I grew up in New York City, going to first a public school, then a private school, and when I got to the private school in Manhattan, I learned of what we called 'The Promised Land,' which are the Hamptons. I've always had an affinity for the Hamptons. #Quote by Mark Feuerstein
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Alex Berenson
#30. Rosette disappeared onto the dance floor. Wells sat in silence for a minute, watching the dancers. The worldwide cult of fast money spent stupidly. The worldwide cult of trying too hard. Moscow, Rio, Los Angeles, Tokyo, New York, London, Shanghai--the story was the same everywhere. The same overloud music, the same overpromoted brand names, the same fake tits, about as erotic as helium balloons. Everywhere an orgy of empty consumption and bad sex. Las Vegas was the cult's world headquarters, Donald Trump its patron saint. Wells had spent ten years in the barren mountains of Afghanistan and Pakistan. He never wanted to live there again. But if he had to choose between an eternity there or in the supposed luxury of this club, he'd go back without a second thought. #Quote by Alex Berenson
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Andre Royo
#31. I started in the theater world in New York City - and indie films - and I love the feeling of your head coming together and trying to tell a simple story, a small story, and just getting that vibe of storytelling without all the craziness of big budget. #Quote by Andre Royo
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Salman Rushdie
#32. [H]as it really been so long since religions persecuted people, burning them as heretics, drowning them as witches, that you can't recognize religious persecution when you see it?
[1,000 Days 'Trapped Inside a Metaphor' (Columbia University / The New York Times, December 12, 1991)] #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Walter Isaacson
#33. PRAISE FOR WALTER ISAACSON'S Steve Jobs "This biography is essential reading." - The New York Times, Holiday Gift Guide "A superbly told story of a superbly lived life." - The Wall Street Journal "Enthralling." - The New Yorker "A frank, smart and wholly unsentimental biography . . . a remarkably sharp, hi-res portrait . . . Steve Jobs is more than a good book; it's an urgently necessary one." - Time "An encyclopedic survey of all that Mr. Jobs accomplished, replete with the passion and excitement that it deserves." - Janet Maslin, The #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by James Purdy
#34. The New York Times Review of Books is toilet paper. Used. #Quote by James Purdy
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Tracy Letts, New York Times Interview
#35. I think there comes a point in your life where you own your damage. You don't necessarily get over it, you don't necessarily have it all figured out, you just say this is mine, these are things I have to be aware of, take care of, work around. #Quote by Tracy Letts, New York Times Interview
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Suzanne Collins
#36. In theory, sure, Gregor could still go home. Pack up his three-year-old sister, Boots, get his mom out of the hospital, where she was recovering from the plague, and have his bat, Ares, fly them back up to the laudry room of their appartment building in New York City. Ares, his bond, who saved his life numerous times and who had had nothing but suffering since he had met Gregor. He tried to imagine the parting. "Well, Ares, it's been great. I'm heading home now. I know by leaving I'm completely dooming to annihilation everbody who's helped me down here, but I'm really not up for this whole war thing anymore. So, fly you high, you know?" Like that would ever happen. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Harlan Coben
#37. We're called New Jersey but we're actually the suburbs of New York. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Hoodie Allen
#38. I feel like I have a very unique perspective especially for someone in the hip-hop genre. I'm not afraid to explore it, and how my upbringing then shapes my music and being a New York kid and all of that stuff ... that's really the most unique thing I can offer to the music in general. #Quote by Hoodie Allen
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Cari Luna
#39. You've turned on us, New York. We who see your jagged-tooth skyline rise up and want to weep because we are so full of you. We who know that the tumbledown tenements are beautiful, that the cracked sidewalks are beautiful, that the iron and cobblestones, the soot and the stink are beautiful, that the tired old shoemakers are beautiful. That the bodega cats, the gutter rats, the endless clouds of pigeons are beautiful . . . We mourn for you, New York, because you are forgetting us, your brash and ragged children. #Quote by Cari Luna
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Eleanor Smeal
#40. Carolyn Maloney identifies with the possibility of being raped, that's why she hung in there for the Debbie Smith Bill. So it - it's essential that in New York, if we can't get a prominent woman in New York, where can we? I mean there's so many states that have never even had a woman senator. We're still on our first this and our first that. #Quote by Eleanor Smeal
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Sherwood Anderson
#41. He wanted most of all the people of his own mind, people with whom he could really talk, people he could harangue and scold by the hour, servants, you see, to his fancy. Among these people he was always self-confident and bold. They might talk, to be sure, and even have opinions of their own, but always he talked last and best. He was like a writer busy among the figures of his brain, a kind of tiny blue-eyed king he was, in a six-dollar room facing Washington Square in the city of New York. #Quote by Sherwood Anderson
Gangs Of New York Boss Tweed quotes by Ayn Rand
#42. He stepped to the window and pointed to the skyscrapers of the city. He said that we had to extinguish the lights of the world, and when we would see the lights of New York go out, we would know that our job was done. #Quote by Ayn Rand
