London quotes by Arthur Darvill

London quotes by Gordon B. Hinckley

London quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#8. Planning is for the world's great cities, for Paris, London, and Rome, for cities dedicated, at some level, to culture. Detroit, on the other hand, was an American city and therefore dedicated to money, and so design had given way to expediency. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
London quotes by Nnedi Okorafor
#9. Adaora was beginning to see why Ayodele's people had chosen the city of Lagos. If they'd landed in New York, Tokyo or London, the governments of these places would have quickly swooped to hide, isolate and study the aliens. Here in Lagos, there was no such order. #Quote by Nnedi Okorafor
London quotes by Alan Rickman
#10. You know, London is so sprawling, and you can sometimes forget that anybody else is on a stage anywhere else. #Quote by Alan Rickman
London quotes by Jack London
#11. Men do not knowingly drink for the effect alcohol produces on the body. What they drink for is the brain-effect; and if it must come through the body, so much the worse for the body. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Jack London
#12. From then on it was war between them. Spitz, as lead-dog and acknowledged master of the team, felt his supremacy threatened by this strange Southland dog. And strange Buck was to him, for of the many Southland dogs he had known, not one had shown up worthily in camp and on trail. They were all too soft, dying under the toil, the frost, and starvation. Buck was the exception. He alone endured and prospered, matching the husky in strength, savagery, and cunning. Then he was a masterful dog, and what made him dangerous was the fact that the club of the man in the red sweater had knocked all blind pluck and rashness out of his desire for mastery. He was preeminently cunning, and could bide his time with a patience that was nothing less than primitive. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Oscar Wilde
#13. London is full of women who trust their husbands. One can always recognize them. They look so thoroughly unhappy. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
London quotes by Jack London
#14. Here the train was halted. The Scotch half-breed slowly retraced his steps to the camp they had left. The men ceased talking. A revolver-shot rang out. The man came back hurriedly. The whips snapped, the bells tinkled merrily, the sleds churned along the trail; but Buck knew, and every dog knew, what had taken place behind the belt of river trees. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Jack London
#15. When a man journeys into a far country, he must be prepared to forget many of the things he has learned, and to acquire such customs as are inherent with existence in the new land; he must abandon the old ideals and the old gods, and oftentimes he must reverse the very codes by which his conduct has hitherto been shaped. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#16. London the secular city instructs him: turn any corner and he can find himself inside a parable. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
London quotes by V.S. Naipaul
#17. For the first time in his life he began to experience a kind of true pride. He felt himself, so to speak, taking up space when he walked in the streets; and he wondered whether this was how other people felt all the time, without effort, all the secure people he met in London and Africa. #Quote by V.S. Naipaul
London quotes by Georgette Heyer
#18. I was under the impression that I warned you that in London country ways will not do, Frederica!"
"You did!" she retorted. "And although I can't say that I paid much heed to your advice it so happens that I am accompanied today by my aunt!"
"Who adds invisibility to her other accomplishments! #Quote by Georgette Heyer
London quotes by David Morrissey
#19. When I came to London as a young man, I was very excited by it and that's never gone away. #Quote by David Morrissey
London quotes by Matthew Goode
#20. You spend some time raising a child in London, carrying it around on one side of your body - it puts your back out! #Quote by Matthew Goode
London quotes by London Miller
#21. If you face a death at the hands of your enemies, do not cower, do not beg, but smile and welcome him like an old friend. #Quote by London Miller
London quotes by Michelle Cliff
#22. She picked up the book beside her. Jane Eyre. Used, bought recently in a bookshop in Camden Passage, shabby nineteenth-century binding, pages bearing vague stains, fingered, smoothed. She opened the book to the place she left it when the taxicab pulled up.

"My daughter, flee temptation."
"Mother, I will," Jane responded, as the moon turned to woman.

The fiction had tricked her. Drawn her in so that she became Jane.

Yes. The parallels were there. Was she not heroic Jane? Betrayed. Left to wander. Solitary. Motherless. Yes, and with no relations to speak of except an uncle across the water. She occupied her mind.

Comforted for a time, she came to. Then, with a sharpness, reprimanded herself. No, she told herself. No, she could not be Jane. Small and pale. English. No, she paused. No, my girl, try Bertha. Wild-maned Bertha. Clare thought of her father. Forever after her to train her hair. His visions of orderly pageboy. Coming home from work with something called Tame. She refused it; he called her Medusa. Do you intend to turn men to stone, daughter? She held to her curls, which turned kinks in the damp of London. Beloved racial characteristic. Her only sign, except for dark spaces here and there where melanin touched her. Yes, Bertha was closer to the mark. Captive. Ragôut. Mixture. Confused. Jamaican. Caliban. Carib. Cannibal. Cimarron. All Bertha. All Clare. #Quote by Michelle Cliff
London quotes by Jack London
#23. Out of this pack-persecution he learned two important things: how to take care of himself in a mass-fight against him; and how, on a single dog, to inflict the greatest amount of damage in the briefest space of time. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Dinah Sheridan
#24. But I think you could say my parts in Appointment In London and Gilbert and Sullivan were particularly interesting. #Quote by Dinah Sheridan
London quotes by Anonymous
#25. Memoirs of An Unfortunate Young Nobleman, Returned from a Thirteen Years' Slavery in America, Where He was Sent by the Wicked Contrivances of His Cruel Uncle, etc. Part II Concludes with a Summary View of the Trial. 2 volumes. London: 1743. #Quote by Anonymous
London quotes by LaToya London
#26. 2006 is all about getting your house in order and I mean that metaphorically. #Quote by LaToya London
London quotes by Jason Fuchs
#27. I got stuck on the Peter Pan ride when I was nine years old with my dad at Disney World. We got stuck on that part of the ride when you're suspended in the pirate ship above the miniature London, and I was fascinated by the why of it all. 'Why is Peter Peter Pan, why is he in Neverland, how did he learn how to fly, etc.?' #Quote by Jason Fuchs
London quotes by Larry King
#28. Those of us forced to read the London papers sometimes speculate about which is greater: the average British hack's sloth, mendacity, ignorance, obsequiousness, capacity for drink, or aversion to paying for that drink. Smart money tends to split between the latter two. #Quote by Larry King
London quotes by Charles Dickens
#29. Mr. Gradgrind, apprised of his wife's decease, made an expedition from London, and buried her in a business-like manner. He then returned with promptitude to the national cinder-heap, and resumed his sifting for the odds and ends he wanted, and his throwing of the dust about into they eyes of other people who wanted other odds and ends - in fact, he resumed his parliamentary duties. #Quote by Charles Dickens
London quotes by Kate Stayman-London
#30. No, Beatrice, it's the hardest thing in the world. To have been that hurt, to feel that afraid, and to know that the only way you can be really, fully happy is to risk going through it all again. #Quote by Kate Stayman-London
London quotes by Jason Flemyng
#31. A lot of pubs in London are now faceless, expensive yuppy bars. Not like when I was growing up. The pub used to be, and should be, the pillar of community. #Quote by Jason Flemyng
London quotes by Jack London
#32. I was not made for the desk and counting-house, for petty business squabbling, and legal jangling. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Jack London
#33. Seven days from the time they pulled into Dawson, they dropped down the steep bank by the Barracks to the Yukon Trail, and pulled for Dyea and Salt Water. Perrault was carrying despatches if anything more urgent than those he had brought in; also, the travel pride had gripped him, and he purposed to make the record trip of the year. Several things favored him in this. The week's rest had recuperated the dogs and put them in thorough trim. The trail they had broken into the country was packed hard by later journeyers. And further, the police had arranged in two or three places deposits of grub for dog and man, and he was travelling light. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Ophelia London
#34. I'd wondered about it before, even felt a few pretty strong impulses, but this was the first time I really thought about kissing her, right this instant, like I could already taste her lips, breathe in her skin at the side of her neck, feel the curves of her body against mine as I eased her back onto the sand, my fingers tangling in her soft blond hair, sliding under her clothes ... #Quote by Ophelia London
London quotes by Pierce Brosnan
#35. I had to have some balls to be Irish Catholic in South London. Most of that time I spent fighting. #Quote by Pierce Brosnan
London quotes by Mohsin Hamid
#36. I like the idea of an open, international London that thrives on attracting hard-working, talented people but has the confidence to tell them they must play by the same rules as everyone else. #Quote by Mohsin Hamid
London quotes by Bill Buford
#37. Gordon Ramsay, the only chef in London honored with three stars by the 'Guide Michelin,' is not a monster. #Quote by Bill Buford
London quotes by Lee Ryan
#38. When you go to clubs in London there are loads of good-looking blokes, and I feel like a bit of a minger #Quote by Lee Ryan
London quotes by Craig Ferguson
#39. A dozen swimming events have already been completed in the Olympic competition. I wonder where they got the name 'Speedo.' It doesn't sound like a bathing suit, it sounds like a breakfast cereal for meth addicts. #Quote by Craig Ferguson
London quotes by Jack London
#40. through the air, reaching the culprit first; and nothing remained to Buck but to recover the bone. That was fair of Francois, he decided, and the half-breed began his rise in Buck's estimation. The other dog made no advances, nor received any; also, he did not attempt to steal from the newcomers. He was a gloomy, #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Theophilus London
#41. I can't really change for a climate. I've got to be Theophilus London in any weather. #Quote by Theophilus London
London quotes by Henry James
#42. One has not the alternative of speaking of London as a whole, for the simple reason that there is no such thing as the whole of it. It is immeasurable - embracing arms never meet. Rather it is a collection of many wholes, and of which of them is it most important to speak? #Quote by Henry James
London quotes by Alex London
#43. Amnesia was a soldier's best friend, and luckily, it could be taught. Missing limbs still ache, but missing memories never do. #Quote by Alex London
London quotes by Henry Drummond
#44. ... something wholly new in religious thought. All other heavens have been gardens, dreamlands: passivities, more or less aimless. Even to the majority among ourselves, heaven is a siesta and not a city.
The heaven of Christianity is different from all other heavens, because the religion of Christianity is different from all other religions. Christianity is the religion of cities. It moves among real things. Its sphere is the street, the market-place, the working life of the world... Try to restore the natural force of the expression - suppose John to have lived today and to have said 'I saw a new London. #Quote by Henry Drummond
London quotes by Sylvia Townsend Warner
#45. So Laura is placed for us: mushrooms, crushed flowers, country matters. In London she will miss the greenhouse with its glossy tank, the appleroom, everything "earthy and warm." Laura is an anomaly in the world of easy literary symbolism: she is a spinster, completely uninterested in men. Nevertheless she belongs irrevocably to the sources of life: to earth, seeds, bulbs. #Quote by Sylvia Townsend Warner
London quotes by Bear Grylls
#46. Over the next few days we spent every waking moment together. We made up silly dances, did puzzles in the evening, and she stood smiling on the beach waiting for me as I took my customary New Year's dip in the freezing cold North Atlantic.
I just had a sense that we were meant to be.
I even found out she lived in the next-door road along from where I was renting a room from a friend in London. What were the chances of that?
As the week drew to a close we both got ready to head back south to London. She was flying. I was driving.
"I'll beat you to London," I challenged her.
She smiled knowingly. "No, you won't." (But I love your spirit.)
She, of course, won. It took me ten hours to drive. But at 10:00 P.M. that same night I turned up at her door and knocked.
She answered in her pajamas.
"Damn, you were right," I said, laughing. "Shall we go for some supper together?"
"I'm in my pajamas, Bear."
"I know, and you look amazing. Put a coat on. Come on."
And so she did.
Our first date, and Shara in her pajamas. Now here was a cool girl.
From then on we were rarely apart. I delivered love letters to her office by day and persuaded her to take endless afternoons off.
We roller-skated in the parks, and I took her down to the Isle of Wight for the weekends.
Mum and Dad had since moved to my grandfather's old house in Dorset, and had rented out our cottage on the island. But we still had an old caravan parked down #Quote by Bear Grylls
London quotes by Pattie Boyd
#47. The Maharishi had invited us all to go to India to his ashram in the Indian Himalaya. We were there studying meditation for two and a half months. While the other three Beatles went back to London to start the beginning of their Apple empire, George and I went to Madras for a week's relaxation. I took this photograph of George one morning, as I thought the light on his face was lovely. I think this was the last time that I saw him looking so calm. #Quote by Pattie Boyd
London quotes by Cecilia London
#48. Your heart belongs to someone else and it always will. I knew it the instant we got here. Do whatever you have to do to make peace with everything that has happened, but don't sacrifice your happiness for it. You deserve to be happy, whether you believe it or not. Let go of your anger. It doesn't define who you are and it shouldn't dictate your life. Forgive him. Gabe #Quote by Cecilia London
London quotes by Mary Quant
#49. London style is individual. #Quote by Mary Quant
London quotes by Alan Davies
#50. I don't drive around London much. Any journey around Islington involves hundreds of speed bumps that seem to tear the bottom of your car off. #Quote by Alan Davies
London quotes by Theophilus London
#51. I like to wear a lot of one-tone color outfits - same color trousers, same color shirt. #Quote by Theophilus London
London quotes by Kate Atkinson
#52. It was extraordinary how far you could go in London and barely touch a pavement or cross a road. #Quote by Kate Atkinson
London quotes by Paula Hawkins
#53. I grew up in Zimbabwe in Southern Africa, and I moved to London when I was 17. And I started commuting and, actually, to go to college. And I used to really enjoy that part of my journey where the - it was actually a Tube train, but it was over ground, and it went right past the backs of people's houses, and I could actually see right in. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
London quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#54. I do hate the City of London! It is the only thing which ever comes between us. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
London quotes by Tarun Shanker
#55. You've come all the way from London just for a joke, then?" I asked. "I guess I shouldn't be surprised."

"No, no, my reason is of much greater importance. The entire city is in chaos. Buildings collapsing, streets flooding, the population plague-stricken, the Thames ablaze. But it was when an orphan boy I rescued from the rubble asked me, with his dying breath, 'Why did this all have to happen, sir? Why did Miss Wyndham leave?' that I solemnly promised to bring you back and restore peace. #Quote by Tarun Shanker
London quotes by Imogen Poots
#56. I find the aristocratic parts of London so unattractive and angular; the architecture is so white and gated. But in New York, it's different - even uptown it's really grand, and there's no real segregation there. It's all mixed up. #Quote by Imogen Poots
London quotes by Jay London
#57. His puppyhood was a period of foolish rebellion. He was always worsted, but he fought back because it was his nature to fight back. And he was unconquerable. #Quote by Jay London
London quotes by Dan Brown
#58. Washington, D.C., has everything that Rome, Paris and London have in the way of great architecture - great power bases. Washington has obelisks and pyramids and underground tunnels and great art and a whole shadow world that we really don't see. #Quote by Dan Brown
London quotes by Jack London
#59. You are one with a crowd of men who have made what they call a government, who are masters of all the other men, and who eat the food the other men get and would like to eat themselves. You wear the warm clothes. They made the clothes, but they shiver in rags and ask you, the lawyer, or business agent who handles your money, for a job.
'But that is beside the matter,' I cried.
Not at all. It is piggishness and it is life. Of what use or sense is an immortality of piggishness? What is the end? What is it all about? You have made no food. Yet the food you have eaten or wasted might have saved the lives of a score of wretches who made the food but did not eat it. What immortal end did you serve? Or did they? #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Pierce Brosnan
#60. To be a young Irishman in London and go to the theater to see 'Rosemary's Baby' ... it scared the crap out of me. #Quote by Pierce Brosnan
London quotes by LaToya London
#61. I know I'm happy and can't wait to see where my career will go next. This isn't the end for any of us. I can understand why they are upset but I want them to move forward and look for the future. #Quote by LaToya London
London quotes by Theophilus London
#62. When you're a kid, you're only exposed to what's going on in your mind. The mind is like a bigger-than-outer-space type of thing. #Quote by Theophilus London
London quotes by Emily St. John Mandel
#63. You know what I've learned about money? I was trying to figure out why my life felt more or less the same in Singapore as it did in London, and that's when I realized that money is its own country. #Quote by Emily St. John Mandel
London quotes by Theophilus London
#64. You gotta learn your body, how clothes fit on you. #Quote by Theophilus London
London quotes by Heron Carvic
#65. Quite. Well., I haven't met the lady myself, but before she came we just had nice quiet larcenies, dopings, muggings, and the like. But since her arrival, it's been shootings, abductions, and now murders--the lot. I suppose you wouldn't like to take her back to London with you and give us all a rest? #Quote by Heron Carvic
London quotes by Carine Roitfeld
#66. I love the free spirit in London. #Quote by Carine Roitfeld
London quotes by Luke Hemsworth
#67. I could probably live in London if you had better surf. #Quote by Luke Hemsworth
London quotes by Jay London
#68. They asked me what I thought about euthanasia. I said I'm more concerned about the adults. #Quote by Jay London
London quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#69. My home will never be a place, but a state of mind, which I find through my music. #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
London quotes by Anthony Trollope
#70. Colonial governors at their seats of government, and Ministers Plenipotentiary in their ambassadorial residences are very great persons indeed; and when met in society at home, with the stars and ribbons which are common among them now, they are less, indeed, but still something. But at the Colonial and Foreign Offices in London, among the assistant secretaries and clerks, they are hardly more than common men. All the gingerbread is gone there. His Excellency is no more than Jones, and the Representative or Alter Ego of Royalty mildly asks little favours of the junior clerks. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
London quotes by Sebastian Faulks
#71. Gray stood up and came round the desk. "Think of the words on that memorial, Wraysford. Think of those stinking towns and foul bloody villages whose names will be turned into some bogus glory by fat-arsed historians who have sat in London. We were there. As our punishment for God knows what, we were there, and our men died in each of those disgusting places. I hate their names. I hate the sound of them and the thought of them, which is why I will not bring myself to remind you. But listen." He put his face close to Stephen's. "There are four words they will chisel beneath them at the bottom. Four words that people will look at one day. When they read the other words they will want to vomit. When they read these, they will bow their heads, just a little. 'Final advance and pursuit.' Don't tell me you don't want to put your name to those words. #Quote by Sebastian Faulks
London quotes by L.J.Smith
#72. I wasn't afraid to die. But, as odd as it was after our years of fighting, I was afraid to live in a world without Damon. My brother was callous, rude, and destructive. And yet he had saved me on more than one occasion during our time in London. He was the one on whom I could count when no one else could be trusted. He was all I had. #Quote by L.J.Smith
London quotes by Michael Winterbottom
#73. If you make a film set in London or in Pakistan or wherever, the thing that interests me is the relationships between individuals - individuals and society, individuals and their family, their girlfriend or boyfriend, it's all the same idea. #Quote by Michael Winterbottom
London quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#74. How strange," she said, "not to recognize one's own face."
"You have no cause for complaint," Grant said huskily. Even bruised and pale and ravaged, her face was incomparable.
"Do you think so?" She stared into the looking glass without a trace of self-satisfactionshe had displayed at the ball. *That* Vivien had had no doubt of her many attractions. This woman was far less confident.
"Everyone thinks so. You're known as one of the great beauties of London."
"I don't see why." Catching his skeptical expression, she added, "Truly, I'm not fishing for compliments, it's just... seems a very ordinary face." She produced a comical, clownish expression, like a child experimenting with her reflection. A shaken laugh escaped her. "It doesn't seem to belong to me. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
London quotes by E. M. Forster
#75. In this circle, one thought, married, and died. Outside it were poverty and vulgarity for ever trying to enter, just as the London fog tries to enter the pine-woods pouring through the gaps in the northern hills. But, #Quote by E. M. Forster
London quotes by George Orwell
#76. The birds sang, the proles sang. the Party did not sing. All round the world, in London and New York, in Africa and Brazil, and in the mysterious, forbidden lands beyond the frontiers, in the streets of Paris and Berlin, in the villages of the endless Russian plain, in the bazaars of China and Japan - everywhere stood the same solid unconquerable figure, made monstrous by work and childbearing, toiling from birth to death and still singing. #Quote by George Orwell
London quotes by Cassidy Calloway
#77. And don't stress about the trip. We'll find some alone time in London," he continued, bending his head closer to mine. "Nothing keeps 007 from romancing a beautiful woman. #Quote by Cassidy Calloway
London quotes by Conan O'Brien
#78. It's now come out just before his record-breaking 100-meter dash, gold medalist Usain Bolt ate at McDonald's. Apparently he timed his meal so when the race started he would have exactly 9.63 seconds to get to a toilet. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
London quotes by Jack London
#79. I am first of all a white man, and only then a socialist. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Oscar Pistorius
#80. To have been selected to represent Team South Africa at the London 2012 Olympic Games in the individual 400m and the 4x400m relay is a real honor and I am so pleased that years of hard work, determination and sacrifice have all come together. #Quote by Oscar Pistorius
London quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#81. FLAG, n. A colored rag borne above troops and hoisted on forts and ships. It appears to serve the same purpose as certain signs that one sees and vacant lots in London #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
London quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#82. I have admired the romantic elegance of the Place de la Concorde in Paris, have felt the mystic message from a thousand glittering windows at sunset in New York, but to me the view of the London Thames from our hotel window transcends them all for utilitarian grandeur - something deeply human. #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
London quotes by Niall Williams
#83. Goodness provokes bitchiness. It's mathematical. It's somewhere in the human genes. Any number of lovely poeple are married to horrible ones. Read Middlemarch (Book 989, George Eliot, Penguin Classics, London) if you don't believe me. There's something in me that just can't let it be. Goodness is a tidy bow you just can't help wanting to pull loose. #Quote by Niall Williams
London quotes by Jack London
#84. Life is so short. I would rather sing one song than interpret the thousand. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Karl Wiggins
#85. Much as I try not to find weirdos amongst the other passengers, I keep finding weirdos amongst the other passengers. Take this old woman yesterday, marching down the platform in front of me like she had a stick stuck up her arse. She had a face like an albino walnut. I didn't know this at the time, of course, until I had cause to glance at her.
Anyway, she was marching along talking to someone, swinging her arm about, and just as I go to overtake her she swung her hand down-and-out and hit me in the dick!
I didn't know what to do. #Quote by Karl Wiggins
London quotes by Ron Pope
#86. In 2012 the best venue I played was Union Chapel in London. It's a beautiful room, the sound is exceptional, and they treated us very well. #Quote by Ron Pope
London quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#87. I lately met with an old volume from a London bookshop, containing the Greek Minor Poets, and it was a pleasure to read once moreonly the words Orpheus, Linus, Musaeus,
those faint poetic sounds and echoes of a name, dying away on the ears of us modern men; and those hardly more substantial sounds, Mimnermus, Ibycus, Alcaeus, Stesichorus, Menander. They lived not in vain. We can converse with these bodiless fames without reserve or personality. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
London quotes by James Clerk Maxwell
#88. But it is evident that all analogies of this kind depend on principles of a more fundamental nature; and that, if we had a true mathematical classification of quantities, we should be able at once to detect the analogy between any system of quantities presented to us and other systems of quantities in known sciences, so that we should lose no time in availing ourselves of the mathematical labors of those who had already solved problems essentially the same. [...] At the same time, I think that the progress of science, both in the way of discovery, and in the way of diffusion, would be greatly aided if more attention were paid in a direct way to the classification of quantities.

- Remarks on the mathematical classification of physical quantities
Proceedings of the London Mathematical Society, 1871 #Quote by James Clerk Maxwell
London quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#89. London has always provided the landscape for my imagination. It becomes a character - a living being - within each of my books. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
London quotes by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
#90. The 2012 London Olympic Games fostered a generation of hope. I witnessed women participating for the very first time, representing every nation. #Quote by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
London quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#91. That was our first step toward better acquaintance. He would call on me sometimes in the evenings instead of running about London with his fellow-clerks; and before long, speaking of himself as a #Quote by Rudyard Kipling
London quotes by Michael Darling
#92. The Robaccio Restaurant was one of those places that sounded like a nice Italian trattoria--and it was. The funny thing about the place was the name: a blend of two Italian words. The word "robaccia" meant "trash" in Italian and "bacio" was "kiss." Putting the two words together was like naming a British pub the Rubbish Smooch, which someone in London really needs to do. #Quote by Michael Darling
London quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#93. In the firm expectation that when London shall be a habitation of bitterns, when St. Paul and Westminster Abbey shall stand shapeless and nameless ruins in the midst of an unpeopled marsh, when the piers of Waterloo Bridge shall become the nuclei of islets of reeds and osiers, and cast the jagged shadows of their broken arches on the solitary stream, some Transatlantic commentator will be weighing in the scales of some new and now unimagined system of criticism the respective merits of the Bells and the Fudges and their historians. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
London quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#94. From Europe. They had been away for three months, having left in February to attend a famous medical congress in London; and certain things, which #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
London quotes by Paul Theroux
#95. A person who is tired of London is not necessarily tired of life; it might be that he just can't find a parking place. #Quote by Paul Theroux
London quotes by Cassandra Clare
#96. Now, don't tell me that's all the questions you have.'
Oh, I have more than you think. 'Why can't you sleep?'
She saw that she had caught him off guard; a look of hesitancy flashed across his face before he spoke. But why hesitate? she thought. He could always lie, or simply deflect, as Will would have. But Jem, she sensed instinctively, wouldn't lie. "I have bad dreams.'
'I was dreaming too,' she said. 'I dreamed about your music.'
He grinned. 'A nightmare, then?'
'No. It was lovely. The loveliest thing I've heard since I came to this horrible city.'
'London isn't horrible,' Jem said equably. 'You simply have to get to know it. You must come with me out into London someday. I can show you the parts of it that are beautiful - that I love. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
London quotes by Gordon Brown
#97. Other prime ministers leave office and stay in London. I have come back with my whole family to Fife. This is where they are being brought up. It is better for them and better for me. It's great to see more of the kids. #Quote by Gordon Brown
London quotes by Jessica Hart
#98. London is very fashion-forward. Everyone's very stylish, and the designers are great. It's very my style, grungy and feminine - a bit of everything. #Quote by Jessica Hart
London quotes by Anna Bennett
#99. The chandelier's teardrop crystals twinkled above them like stars. It was easy to imagine that they were miles away from London, and that only the two of them existed. #Quote by Anna Bennett
London quotes by Derek Bailey
#100. In so far as I listen with interest to a record, it's usually to figure out how it was arrived at. The musical end product is where interest starts to flag. It's a bit like jigsaw puzzles. Emptied out of the box, there's a heap of pieces, all shapes, sizes and colours, in themselves attractive and could add up to anything
intriguing. Figuring out how to put them together can be interesting, but what you finish up with as often as not is a picture of unsurpassed banality. Music's like that."
From "Derek Bailey and the Story of Free Improvisation" by Ben Watson, Verso, London, 2004, p. 440. #Quote by Derek Bailey
London quotes by Taylor Hackford
#101. The most disgusting, appalling horror of our world that we live in, to me, is sex trafficking and the enslavement of men and women, boys and girls, in the sex industry. That is the most horrific, horrific thing that's happening and it's happening in all of our towns here in Los Angeles, in New York, in London, in Paris, all over the world, and I think that's really what has to be addressed. #Quote by Taylor Hackford
London quotes by Ellie Goulding
#102. I start really missing London when I go away. I have a little flat, but very central. I live above a pub and you'd think it'd be a nightmare, but I like hearing the music and it's quite comforting. #Quote by Ellie Goulding
London quotes by Patricia Cornwell
#103. I put his toll at a dozen, maybe as many as twenty or possibly more, and he didn't slaughter only prostitutes - or "Unfortunates," as they were called. It's also not true that he struck exclusively in the East End slums or even just in London. He killed in multiple cities, and he quickly escalated to mutilation, dismemberment and possibly cannibalism. His victim selection began to include children, and he boasted about all of it in his written communications that for the most part were ignored. #Quote by Patricia Cornwell
London quotes by Italo Zucchelli
#104. In the past, people couldn't place me. They thought that I was Danish or English or French. They never got that I am Italian. I'm not typical, maybe because my visual education was very mixed. There was a lot of London in my aesthetic: The Face, i-D, British music, and a lot of British fashion ... But I really enjoy this contrast. #Quote by Italo Zucchelli
London quotes by William Monahan
#105. London exists normally in a state of bleach bypass. There's the artistic context of "Blow Up" and "Performance" and all the Sixties and Seventies British films that I grew up on, because I did very much grow up on British films. #Quote by William Monahan
London quotes by Dave Mason
#106. We can talk about Manchester! I like coming here, it's a wicked city. It's my second favourite city in England after London. I like Liverpool too but there's a lot more to do in Manchester. #Quote by Dave Mason
London quotes by Dodie Smith
#107. NOT long ago, there lived in London a young married couple of Dalmatian dogs named Pongo and Missis Pongo. (Missis had added Pongo's name to her own on their marriage, but was still called Missis by most people.) They were lucky enough to own a young married couple of humans named Mr. and Mrs. Dearly, who were gentle, obedient, and unusually intelligent - almost canine at times. They understood quite a number of barks: the barks for "Out, please!" "In, please!" "Hurry up with my dinner!" and "What about a walk?" And even when they could not understand, they could often guess - if looked at soulfully or scratched by an eager paw. Like many other much-loved humans, they believed that they owned their dogs, instead of realizing that their dogs owned them. Pongo and Missis found this touching and amusing and let their pets think it was true. #Quote by Dodie Smith
London quotes by Karl Pilkington
#108. A while back I heard bears have to stick leaves up their arse to stop ants crawling up there and biting them! I know the world is getting overpopulated but it isn't that crowded that things have to live up an arse. No wonder Paddington Bear left Peru for London. When you've got bears wanting to leave the country it makes me wonder what I'm doing here. #Quote by Karl Pilkington
London quotes by Boris Johnson
#109. Huge numbers of people in London depend on their cars. Fuel duty is becoming a big factor in people's cost of living. I believe in trying to ease these burdens. #Quote by Boris Johnson
London quotes by Jonathan Swift
#110. It is the folly of too many to mistake the echo of a London coffee-house for the voice of the kingdom. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
London quotes by Samuel Larsen
#111. I've got a couple of bands that I'm working on. The one I'm really excited about, we're called London The Child. It's folky music and it's really cool. #Quote by Samuel Larsen
London quotes by Holly Smale
#112. And this way, l'll leave everything behind before it gets the chance to do the same to me. #Quote by Holly Smale
London quotes by Gemma Arterton
#113. I wouldn't change a thing in my own life, but I'd like to go back in time anyway though, just to some sort of eras that I wish I'd lived in - like the '60s. I'd love to have been in London in the '60s, partying away. #Quote by Gemma Arterton
London quotes by Karen Schwabach
#114. London. For some reason the word didn't seem to have the magic, warm, sound of home that it had always had. #Quote by Karen Schwabach
London quotes by Jack London
#115. And day by day I became convinced that not only is it unwise, but it is criminal for the people of the Abyss to marry. They are the stones by the builder rejected. There is no place for them, in the social fabric while all the forces of society drive them downward till they perish. At the bottom of the Abyss they are feeble, besotted, and imbecile. If they reproduce, the life is so cheap that perforce it perishes of itself. The work of the world goes on above them, and they do not care to take part in it, nor are they able. Moreover, the work of the world does not need them. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Jean Rhys
#116. London is like a cold dark dream sometimes. #Quote by Jean Rhys
London quotes by Sam Starbuck
#117. Miss Fields," said a servant, stepping into the room and closing the door, "There is a visitor for you. Are you in?"
Clare blinked. "Yes, obviously."
"Ah. Miss Fields, I should advise
you may be in without being 'in', if you prefer," he said, offering her a tray. There was a calling card on it; Arthur Conan Doyle, Edinburgh. #Quote by Sam Starbuck
London quotes by Michael Ignatieff
#118. 'The Prince's blunt candor has been a scandal for 500 years. The book was placed on the Papal Index of banned books in 1559, and its author was denounced on the Elizabethan stages of London as the 'Evil Machiavel.' The outrage has not dimmed with time. #Quote by Michael Ignatieff
London quotes by Kenneth Clarke
#119. However, we do not lack anti-terrorist laws. I do not believe that the recent London bombs were the result of any deficiencies in our legal system. #Quote by Kenneth Clarke
London quotes by Natalie Imbruglia
#120. When I'm in London, I love to visit Kensington gardens and just sit in the park and read a good book. #Quote by Natalie Imbruglia
London quotes by David Miliband
#121. One of the jewels in the crown of Labour's time in office was the rescue of the National Health Service. As the Commonwealth Fund, the London School of Economics and the Nuffield Foundation have all shown, health reforms as well as additional investment were essential to improved outcomes, especially for poorer patients. #Quote by David Miliband
London quotes by Neil MacGregor
#122. London theatre is different: it is a commercial theatre that brings the whole of society into one place. And Shakespeare grasped, better than anyone else, what it means to engage the entire audience. #Quote by Neil MacGregor
London quotes by Evan Davis
#123. As it happens, I have personally been something of an enthusiast for the London Olympic games, mainly on the grounds a) that a bit of wasteland will be made nice and b) that it tends to make everybody happy that their country should be the centre of world attention for a couple of weeks in their life. #Quote by Evan Davis
London quotes by Ian Fleming
#124. Bond grinned with pleasure. What most warmed him was that M. himself should have rung up Mathis. This was quite unheard of. The very existence of M., let alone his identity, was never admitted. He could imagine the flutter this must have caused in the ultra-security-minded organization in London. #Quote by Ian Fleming
London quotes by Jim Keith
#125. Not surprisingly Wells places the City of London - the international center of banking culture - and its financial credit as responsible for knitting together world economic life over the previous hundred years. With these innovations in communications and finance, but also with the frustrations and wars inherent (so he says) in the existence of independent national states and sovereignties, came about the gradual dawning of the idea of the World-State. #Quote by Jim Keith
London quotes by Julianne Donaldson
#126. Philip. I have never been outside of England. I've never even been to London. Do you know what I would give for your experiences? How could you possibly think you would bore me?"
He didn't answer, but there was such a look of delight in his eyes that I had to ask, "Why are you looking at me like that?"
"You called me Philip. For the first time. #Quote by Julianne Donaldson
London quotes by Stewart Butterfield
#127. I love cities. New York, Montreal, London, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Sydney, Melbourne, Toronto, L.A ... but, I do choose to live in Vancouver. It's home. #Quote by Stewart Butterfield
London quotes by Salman Rushdie
#128. Mr. Gibreel Farishta on the railway to London was once again seized as who would not be by the fear that God had decided to punish him for his loss of faith by driving him insane. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
London quotes by Jack London
#129. He was older than the days he had seen and the breaths he had drawn. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Monique Roffey
#130. While I am most at home in London, I cannot really label myself as either British or Trinidadian. I write in the English language and live in the U.K. I find it hard to say that I am an entirely British writer, especially when I supported Trinidad in the 2006 World Cup and also support the West Indies cricket team. #Quote by Monique Roffey
London quotes by Jack London
#131. Truth often finds its way to the mind close muffled in robes of sleep, and then speaks with uncompromising directness of matters in regard to which we practise an unconscious self-deception during our waking moments. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by M.R. Carey
#132. They're still walking south, with the whole of north London and central London and south London to get through. Even for the young private, Caldwell sees, some of the shock and awe has drained away. The only one who's still looking at every new thing they pass with indefatigable wonder is test subject number one. As #Quote by M.R. Carey
London quotes by Alan Parker
#133. I'm always afraid someone's going to tap me on the shoulder one day and say, 'Back to North London.' #Quote by Alan Parker
London quotes by Selena Gomez
#134. My first big career purchase when I was, like, 17 was a Louis Vuitton laptop bag. Now, seeing the exhibit [Louis Vuitton's "Series 3" exhibition in London], it's exciting because I feel like I kind of know it. It's weird - it's almost like something you grow up with and you just know a little bit about it. Now that I'm immersed in it, it's kind of insane. #Quote by Selena Gomez
London quotes by Jules Verne
#135. Left London, Wednesday, October 2nd, at 8.45 p.m. "Reached Paris, Thursday, October 3rd, at 7.20 a.m. "Left Paris, Thursday, at 8.40 a.m. "Reached Turin by Mont Cenis, Friday, October 4th, at 6.35 a.m. "Left Turin, Friday, at 7.20 a.m. "Arrived at Brindisi, Saturday, October 5th, at 4 p.m. "Sailed on the Mongolia, Saturday, at 5 p.m. "Reached Suez, Wednesday, October 9th, at 11 a.m. "Total of hours spent, 158+; or, in days, six days and a half. #Quote by Jules Verne
London quotes by Fernando Torres
#136. Madrid is not as big as London, but it is true when you are coming from a big city like Madrid, nothing is going to surprise you, and I am very happy to move to a city like London. It is a big city, and you can do everything you want with the respect that the English people always have. #Quote by Fernando Torres
London quotes by Tom Ford
#137. I have a driver in London because I am slightly dyslexic and cannot drive in the U.K.; after all, the traffic runs the opposite way to that in the United States. #Quote by Tom Ford
London quotes by David Quammen
#138. Wallace's sales agent, back in London, heard mutterings from some naturalists that young Mr. Wallace ought to quit theorizing and stick to gathering facts. Besides expressing their condescension toward him in particular, that criticism also reflected a common attitude that fact-gathering, not theory, was the proper business of all naturalists. #Quote by David Quammen
London quotes by J.K. Rowling
#139. Don't let the Muggles get you down! Try and come to London, #Quote by J.K. Rowling
London quotes by Matt Ridley
#140. By one estimate, the number of different products that you can buy in New York or London tops ten billion.
This should not need saying, but it does. There are people today who think life was better in the past. They argue that there was not only a simplicity, tranquility, sociability and spirituality about life in the distant past that has been lost, but a virtue too. This rose-tinted nostalgia, please note, is generally confined to the wealthy. It is easier to wax elegiac for the life of a peasant when you do not have to use a long-drop toilet. #Quote by Matt Ridley
London quotes by Mary Kom
#141. The incentive of a medal at the biggest sporting arena in the world is what drives me. Before I hang my gloves, I want to win the Olympic medal, and my performance at London will decide my future in the sport. #Quote by Mary Kom
London quotes by Jack London
#142. Infinite ambition and infinite loneliness, receiving neither help nor sympathy, I did it all for myself
navigation, mathematics, science, literature and what not. And history tells of opportunity that came to the slaves who rose to the purple. No man makes opportunity. All the great men ever did was to know it when it came to them. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Tessa Dare
#143. I have never been wistful a day in my life. I am entirely devoid of wist." He tugged on his waistcoat. "Now if you'll excuse me, I have an engagement this evening. The women of London can't pleasure themselves, you know. I mean, they can pleasure themselves. But on occasion they generously let me have a go at it."

"Who is she this time?"

"Do you really care?"

"I don't know. Do you? #Quote by Tessa Dare
London quotes by Nicolas Berggruen
#144. If you erased New York, I hate to say it, if you erased Frankfurt, even London, the world would not have changed. #Quote by Nicolas Berggruen
London quotes by Lauren London
#145. Is being single hard? It depends where your mind is. If you are focused, being single is an enjoyable experience, but if you hate being alone, you'll hate being single. I think it depends on the individual are where they are in life. #Quote by Lauren London
London quotes by Brian Hoey
#146. A happier occasion was in 2012 when the Queen agreed to take part in a spoof film for the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games. She was seen walking along a corridor in Buckingham Palace accompanied by the actor Daniel Craig, aka James Bond. Also in the video were Her Majesty's favourite corgi and 'Big Paul' Whybrew in his dark uniform complete with decorations. #Quote by Brian Hoey
London quotes by Max Irons
#147. I think New York is more stylish than London. #Quote by Max Irons
London quotes by Robert Galbraith
#148. It was nearly eight before he returned to the office. This was the hour when he found London most lovable; the working day over, her pub windows were warm and jewel-like, her streets thrummed with life, and the indefatigable permanence of her aged buildings, softened by the street lights, became strangely reassuring. We have seen plenty like you, they seemed to murmur soothingly, as he limped along Oxford Street carrying a boxed-up camp bed. Seven and a half million hearts were beating in close proximity in this heaving old city, and many, after all, would be aching far worse than his. Walking wearily past closing shops, while the heavens turned indigo above him, Strike found solace in vastness and anonymity. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
London quotes by Virginia Woolf
#149. Murmuring London flowed up to her, and her hand, lying on the sofa back, curled upon some imaginary baton such as her grandfathers might have held, holding which she seemed, drowsy and heavy, to be commanding battalions marching to Canada, and those good fellows walking across London, that territory of theirs, that little bit of carpet, Mayfair. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
London quotes by Lauren London
#150. I love the art of acting, so whether I do it on film with a million people seeing me or I do it in front of 20 people in a class showcasing my art, I am going to act whether anyone sees it or everyone sees it. #Quote by Lauren London
London quotes by Julia London
#151. You cannot imagine the power you possess over me. With a look, a sign, a smile, you reduce me to nothing but hunger. #Quote by Julia London
London quotes by Oscar Wilde
#152. Oh, I love London Society! It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what Society should be. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
London quotes by Tarun Shanker
#153. What are you - " I paused and it hit me. "Oh heavens, what did you do?"
He shrugged innocently. "Let's just say … that I've been … in a sense … blackmailing key members of London society and editors of the scandal sheets into preserving your reputation."
I gaped at him. "And by 'in a sense,' I mean that's exactly what happened." He smiled broadly at the room.
"You - you're serious?" I found myself half gasping the words but also not finding it terribly hard to believe. Mr. Kent never hid his worse qualities.
He wore them like badges. #Quote by Tarun Shanker
London quotes by AnnaSophia Robb
#154. Well, I'm kind of an urban girl, I like big cities. I like New York, I like London, I like L.A. I like people, I get lonely, really, really easily. But, I think it was good, It was very different and I think that's good. #Quote by AnnaSophia Robb
London quotes by Douglas Booth

London quotes by Yochai Benkler
#158. Like crime, terrorism is a fact of life. I grew up in Israel, where every unattended bag was a suspected bomb; when my family moved for a few years, it was to London in the early years of 'the Troubles.' #Quote by Yochai Benkler
London quotes by Steve Madden
#159. What inspires me is what I see people wearing on the streets of the world from New York to London and beyond. I get my ideas and inspiration from pounding the pavement all over the world. Today, fashion is dictated by individual style. To me, the fashion of the future is anything that a young guy or girl feels good wearing as long as it's put together in the right way. #Quote by Steve Madden
London quotes by Virginia Woolf
#160. The train slows and lengthens, as we approach London, the centre, and my heart draws out too, in fear, in exaltation. I am about to meet
what? What extraordinary adventure awaits me, among these mail vans, these porters, these swarms of people calling taxis? I feel insignificant, lost, but exultant. With a soft shock we stop. I will let the others get before me. I will sit still one moment before I emerge into that chaos, that tumult. I will not anticipate what is to come. The huge uproar is in my ears. It sounds and resounds under this glass roof like the surge of a sea. We are cast down on the platform with our handbags. We are whirled asunder. My sense of self almost perishes; my contempt. I become drawn in, tossed down, thrown sky-high. I step on to the platform, grasping tightly all that I possess
one bag. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
London quotes by William Wordsworth
#161. Private courts, Gloomy as coffins, and unsightly lanes Thrilled by some female vendor's scream, belike The very shrillest of all London cries, May then entangle our impatient steps; Conducted through those labyrinths, unawares, To privileged regions and inviolate, Where from their airy lodges studious lawyers Look out on waters, walks, and gardens green. #Quote by William Wordsworth
London quotes by J.K. Rowling
#162. Yes,' said Harry quickly. 'Listen, how much would it be to get to London?' 'Eleven Sickles,' said Stan, 'but for firteen you get 'ot chocolate, and for fifteen you get an 'ot-water bottle an' a toofbrush in the colour of your choice.' Harry #Quote by J.K. Rowling
London quotes by Kim Karr
#163. You're back and forth with me, with your actions, with your emotions. You act like you don't remember me, then spring on me that you do. You flirt with me and then you stop on a dime. You kiss me and then you pull away as soon as I touch you. You're mad then you're not." I don't stop to take a breath or let him speak before finally raising the hand he's holding and letting it go. "You're holding my hand, then . . ." I trail off, not sure of how to finish that thought. Tearing my gaze from his, I try to rein in my emotions, to wipe the flustered girl up off the floor. #Quote by Kim Karr
London quotes by Nayvadius Cash
#164. At first, Hendrix went and became a superstar in London, but if he walked past the Apollo in Harlem, no one would know who he was. I'm the hip-hop version of him. #Quote by Nayvadius Cash

London quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#167. In London there is a man who screams when the church bells ring. He lives all alone with his streaked cat in Gray's Inn, and people call him harmlessly mad. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
London quotes by Carmen Ejogo
#168. Growing up in London, with a hippie mom, I don't know that I'm most people's definition of what a black person is. I'm mixed, yes, but in the world I'm defined as black before I'm defined white. I've never been called white. #Quote by Carmen Ejogo
London quotes by Clare London
#169. Mum calls you happy." Emily giggled.
"Huh? I don't know your Mom…" "She says men like you are happy!"
Garry stared at her, uncomprehending. He'd rarely felt less happy in his life.
"She means gay," Max said, and now there was a grin on his face. #Quote by Clare London
London quotes by Jack London
#170. It was what should have been a bright summer day, but the smoke
from the burning world filled the sky, through which the sun shone
murkily, a dull and lifeless orb, blood-red and ominous. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Theophilus London
#171. I'm gonna walk super, super slow to when I turn 40 or something. To me, walking and floating slow represents how wealthy you are! #Quote by Theophilus London

#172. I grew up in Essex, and all my life I wanted to live in London - now I do. I feel very privileged to be able to live here. #Quote by Russell Tovey
London quotes by Sebastian Faulks
#173. One thing about London is that when you step out into the night, it swallows you. #Quote by Sebastian Faulks
London quotes by Louis Bayard
#174. I've often thought a blind man could find his way through London simply by gauging the changes in innuendo: mild through Trafalgar Square, less veiled towards the river. #Quote by Louis Bayard
London quotes by M.K. Hume
#175. The monster, Hitler, died like Uther, frightened, hiding, haunted by his crimes and his wholly reasonable belief that all decent human beings would turn their backs on him. Who really cares where Hitler's bones lie, or how he died, as long as he is safely dead? Now, in the twenty-first century, Karl Marx's grave in a London cemetery is no longer a rallying cry to the poisoned idea that the end justifies the means. We shall never know for certain where Arthur lies, or if he even lived. If he was a myth, then it was necessary for human beings to invent him. Hail, Arthur, King of the Britons! I wish another hero would take your place, now that the west has such a need of you. #Quote by M.K. Hume
London quotes by C. Alexander London
#176. It is hard when our heroes fall, yes? - Alek Spasky #Quote by C. Alexander London
London quotes by Robert Mundell

London quotes by Boris Johnson

London quotes by Virginia Woolf
#181. And they went further and further from her, being attached to her by a thin
thread (since they lunched with her) which would stretch and stretch, get thinner and thinner as they walked across London; as if one´s friends were attached to one´s body, after lunching with them, by a thin thread, which (as dozed there) became hazy with the sond of bells, striking the hour or ringing to service, as a single spider´s thread is blotted with rain –drops, and, burdened, sags down. So she slept. And Richard Dalloway and Hugh Whithbread hesitated at the corner of Conduit Street at the very moment that Millicent Bruton, lying on the sofa, let the thread snap, snored. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
London quotes by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
#182. I live in London and I am a British subject, although I do write in Spanish, of course. #Quote by Guillermo Cabrera Infante
London quotes by Jack London
#183. In London the slaughter of the innocents goes on on a scale more stupendous than any before in the history of the world. And equally stupendous is the callousness of the people who believe in Christ, acknowledge God, and go to church regularly on Sunday. For the rest of the week they riot about on the rents and profits which come to them from the East End stained with the blood of the children. Also, at times, so peculiarly are they made, they will take half a million of these rents and profits and send it away to educate the black boys of the Soudan. #Quote by Jack London
London quotes by Tamara Mellon

London quotes by Rudyard Kipling

And this is the tale that River told: #Quote by Rudyard Kipling
London quotes by Felix J. Palma
#186. For the very first time Andrew realized that life, real life, had no connection with the way people spent their days, whose lips they kissed, what medals were pinned on them, or the shoes they mended. Life, real life went on soundlessly ... ultimately there was no difference between Queen Victoria and the most wretched beggar in London: both were complex machines made up of bone, organ, and tissue, whose fuel was the breath of God. #Quote by Felix J. Palma
London quotes by Eoin Colfer
#187. And one more thing. About my name - Artemis - you were right. In London, it is generally a female name, after the Greek goddess of archery. But every now and then a male comes along with such a talent for hunting that he earns the right to use the name. I am that male. Artemis the hunter. I hunted you. #Quote by Eoin Colfer
