San Simeon quotes by Anonymous
#1. For a time, the press lord William Randolph Hearst did everything in his vast powers to keep the film "Citizen Kane" from finding an audience. He intimidated theater owners, refused to let ads run in his newspapers, and even pressured studio sycophants to destroy the negative. At first, the titan of San Simeon had his way: the film faded from view after a splashy initial release. But over the years, "Citizen Kane" came to be recognized for the masterpiece it is, and now regularly tops lists as the greatest film ever made. #Quote by Anonymous
San Simeon quotes by Laura Oliva
#2. Of course you had to pick the dive-y-est dive bar this side of Market. I think that door handle just gave me a venereal disease. #Quote by Laura Oliva
San Simeon quotes by Tom Lehrer
#3. San Francisco is a city of twenty-something millionaire white kids named Doug. #Quote by Tom Lehrer
San Simeon quotes by Carly Fiorina
#4. When we miss with all the metadata collection we've had, the San Bernardino couple and the Tsarnaev brothers, what that suggests to me is that we are using the wrong algorithms to search through all this data. #Quote by Carly Fiorina
San Simeon quotes by Yamada Nanpei
#5. When I was up on stage, Hal-san pointed toward where you were seated. Hal-san knew the general area where you where seated but he said he couldn't find you because there were too many people. But I found you and I saw only you because you were beaming bright like a spotlight was shining upon you. That's how you appeared to me. #Quote by Yamada Nanpei
San Simeon quotes by Susan Orlean
#6. Notionally, it was the anchor of the region, but it existed at such a spiritual and sociological remove that it could have been the moon. Most likely, people settling in the San Jacinto Valley hoped not to make their way closer to Los Angeles but to make their way farther from it. #Quote by Susan Orlean
San Simeon quotes by Junipero Serra
#7. Here are also the two vessels, but the San Carlos without sailors, all having died of the scurvy, except two. #Quote by Junipero Serra
San Simeon quotes by Amanda Palmer
#8. WHO'S GOT A TAMPON? I JUST GOT MY PERIOD, I will announce loudly to nobody in particular in a women's bathroom in a San Francisco restaurant, or to a co-ed dressing room of a music festival in Prague, or to the unsuspecting gatherers in a kitchen at a party in Sydney, Munich, or Cincinnati. Invariably, across the world, I have seen and heard the rustling of female hands through backpacks and purses, until the triumphant moment when a stranger fishes one out with a kind smile. No money is ever exchanged. The unspoken universal understanding is: Today, it is my turn to take the tampon. Tomorrow, it shall be yours. There is a constant, karmic tampon circle. It also exists, I've found, with Kleenex, cigarettes, and ballpoint pens. #Quote by Amanda Palmer
San Simeon quotes by Michael Lewis
#9. The relationship between the people and their money in California is such that you can pluck almost any city at random and enter a crisis. San Jose has the highest per capita income of any city in the United States, after New York. It has the highest credit rating of any city in California with a population over 250,000. It is one of the few cities in America with a triple-A rating from Moody's and Standard & Poor's, but only because its bondholders have the power to compel the city to levy a tax on property owners to pay off the bonds. The city itself is not all that far from being bankrupt. #Quote by Michael Lewis
San Simeon quotes by James A. Michener
#10. The city of Los Angeles is now some twenty-four hundred miles south of central Alaska, and since it is moving slowly northward as the San Andreas fault slides irresistibly along, the city is destined eventually to become part of Alaska. If #Quote by James A. Michener
San Simeon quotes by Andriy Shevchenko
#11. When I was a child, it was my dream to be a professional footballer. When I was 14 I visited Milan's San Siro stadium and remember thinking how unbelievable it was. From then onwards I vowed that one day I would be playing there - and I am very proud that I achieved this and also for everything else I have managed to achieve in football. #Quote by Andriy Shevchenko
San Simeon quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#12. The act of willingly subtracting from one's own limited store of the good and the agreeable for the sake of adding to that of others reflects the understanding that individual happiness needs a base broader than the mere satisfaction of selfish passions. From there, it is not such a large step to the realization that respecting the susceptibilities and rights of others is as important as defending one's own susceptibilities and rights if civilized society is to be safeguarded. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
San Simeon quotes by Norman Foster
#13. Google has already tested robot cars in San Francisco. If they can navigate San Francisco, they can probably manage just about anywhere. #Quote by Norman Foster
San Simeon quotes by Robert Wright
#14. To be sure, there are hunter-gatherer societies that don't exhibit the elaborately organized violence denoted by the term "war." But often what turns out to be lacking is the organization, not the violence. The warless !Kung San were billed in the title of one book as The Harmless People, yet during the 1950s and 1960s, their homicide rate was between 20 and 80 times as high as that found in industrialized nations.114 Eskimos, to judge by popular accounts, are all cuddliness and generosity. Yet early this century, after westerners first made contact with a fifteen-family Eskimo village, they found that every adult male had been involved in a homicide. One reason the !Kung and most Eskimo haven't waged war is their habitat.115 With population sparse, friction is low. But when densely settled along fertile ground, hunter-gatherers have warred lavishly. The Ainu of Japan built hilltop fortresses and, when raiding a neighboring #Quote by Robert Wright
San Simeon quotes by Woody Allen
#15. I can live in Paris for four months or London or, you know, Barcelona. These are places that are like New York. But I don't think I could live in many places. When I had to make a film in the United States I picked San Francisco because to me it's one of the great cities of America. #Quote by Woody Allen
San Simeon quotes by Armistead Maupin
#16. The line, Lasko. Do you know anyone in San Francisco? Are you just gonna get off the train and take a streetcar to the swimming pool?" "I might. I could." "You have to have a plan, Lasko." "No, I don't. Not after this. I don't have to have a plan in the world. #Quote by Armistead Maupin
San Simeon quotes by San Juan De La Cruz
#17. I shall sully the purity of your floor, said he...
#Quote by San Juan De La Cruz
San Simeon quotes by Jonathan Freedman
#18. You see, the world is as big as an elephant or small as a grain of sand, depending on you. You can let it stomp you, gore you, swallow you up. Or you can let it slip into your shell and turn into a pearl." -- Benjamin East #Quote by Jonathan Freedman
San Simeon quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#19. The history of the world shows that peoples and societies do not have to pass through a fixed series of stages in the course of development. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
San Simeon quotes by Karina Halle
#20. Too many times I've heard stories of people being attacked in front of others, people who yell for help, and no one comes to their aid. People these days are too afraid to stick their neck out and help each other. There are too many guns, too many crazies, too many criminals. Even in the most liberal city in America, I wonder how many San Franciscans would take the chance. But I can't think like that. I have to believe in the good in people, even as the world spins to an even worse future. #Quote by Karina Halle
San Simeon quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#21. No, I was never afraid. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
San Simeon quotes by Kristen Bell
#22. I don't like staying in hotels. I like to be in my own bed. San Diego as a city is really awesome. The only hard part of it for me is that I'm away from my family and my house. But as far as shooting down there, we get amazing locations, and the crew is really, really stellar down there. They are really fun. #Quote by Kristen Bell
San Simeon quotes by Charles Thompson
#23. Creativity consists of coming up with many ideas, not just that one great idea. #Quote by Charles Thompson
San Simeon quotes by Herb Caen
#24. San Francisco isn't what it used to be, and it never was. #Quote by Herb Caen
San Simeon quotes by Dan Lewis
#25. Suicide attempts at the Empire State Building are rare, but the same unfortunately cannot be said about the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the most popular such site in the United States. (The Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge in China is widely regarded as the world's most popular suicide bridge, and the Golden Gate Bridge is number two.) We don't know, officially, how many people have taken their lives there because when the number hit 997, authorities stopped counting to avoid giving anyone the incentive of being jumper number 1,000. Whatever the number is, it could have been much higher. In 1994, California Highway Patrol Sergeant Kevin Briggs was assigned to patrol the bridge. Since then, he's managed to talk an estimated 200 people out of jumping. #Quote by Dan Lewis
San Simeon quotes by Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin
#26. Who told you that one paints with colors? One makes use of colors, but one paints with emotions. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin
San Simeon quotes by Christina Engela
#27. Apparently some rustlers had been swiping red-horned wildebeest from farms in the San Fedora area and transporting them off-world to other colonies where they would sell them. And these were known repeat offenders. He could make a packet if he got the whole bunch of them the same time. The pickings were kind of slim in Atro City lately and he could use the money. He didn't like feeling like a leech around Cindy-Mei. #Quote by Christina Engela
San Simeon quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#28. On broader lines he's like those chappies who sit peering sadly over the marble battlements at the Pennsylvania Station in the place marked "Inquiries." You know the Johnnies I mean. You go up to them and say: "When's the next train for Melonsquashville, Tennessee?" and they reply, without stopping to think, "Two-forty-three, track ten, change at San Francisco." And they're right every time. Well, Jeeves gives you just the same impression of omniscience. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
San Simeon quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#29. As we strive to teach others we must have the humility to acknowledge that we too still have much to learn. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
San Simeon quotes by Dick Dale
#30. I surfed Dana Point, San Clemente, and of course Huntington Beach. Every morning, you could find me at the hot water pipe. #Quote by Dick Dale
San Simeon quotes by Queen Latifah
#31. To me, doing a gay pride show is one of the most fun things. My first show that paid more than $10,000 was in a gay club on New Year's Eve in San Francisco. #Quote by Queen Latifah
San Simeon quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#32. I am indebted to the following colleagues for their advice, assistance, or support: Dr. Alfred Lerner, Dori Vakis, Robin Heck, Dr. Todd Dray, Dr. Robert Tull, and Dr. Sandy Chun. Thanks also to Lynette Parker of East San Jose Community Law Center for her advice about adoption procedures, and to Mr. Daoud Wahab for sharing his experiences in Afghanistan with me. I am grateful to my dear friend Tamim Ansary for his guidance and support and to the gang at the San Francisco Writers Workshop for their feedback and encouragement. I want to thank my father, my oldest friend and the inspiration for all that is noble in Baba; my mother who prayed for me and did nazr at every stage of this book's writing; my aunt for buying me books when I was young. Thanks go out to Ali, Sandy, Daoud #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
San Simeon quotes by David Sedaris
#33. It was my friend Frank, a writer in San Francisco, who finally set me straight. When asked about my new look he put down his fork and stared at me for a few moments. A bow tie announces to the world you can no longer get an erection. #Quote by David Sedaris
San Simeon quotes by Doug Harvey
#34. Before I joined professional baseball, I started umpiring in San Diego, California. I worked 155 games in a five-month season. For three years in a row, I was working tripleheaders on Saturday and doubleheaders on Sunday. #Quote by Doug Harvey
San Simeon quotes by Thomas Keneally
#35. His wife, Emilie, still lived, without any financial help from him, in her little house in San Vicente, south of Buenos Aires. She lives there at the time of the writing of this book. As she was in Brinnlitz, she is a figure of quiet dignity. In a documentary made by German television in 1973, she spoke - without any of the abandoned wife's bitterness or sense of grievance - about Oskar and Brinnlitz, about her own behavior in Brinnlitz. Perceptively, she remarked that Oskar had done nothing astounding before the war and had been unexceptional since. He was fortunate, therefore, that in that short fierce era between 1939 and 1945 he had met people who summoned forth his deeper talents. #Quote by Thomas Keneally
San Simeon quotes by San Juan De La Cruz
#36. David in this night says of himself, "My heart is inflamed, and my reins are changed, and I am brought to nothing, and knew not."2 That is, "my heart hath been inflamed" in the love of contemplation; #Quote by San Juan De La Cruz
San Simeon quotes by Freddy Fender
#37. My sister and I were born in San Francisco. When our parents died, we came down here to live with relatives. #Quote by Freddy Fender
San Simeon quotes by Rick Riordan
#38. He was drawn to painful thoughts, fear, darkness. And Reyna's darkest, most painful memory was San Juan. Her biggest fear? Coming back here. #Quote by Rick Riordan
San Simeon quotes by Manly P. Hall
#39. San Juan points out that the life of mysticism begins with this great love which in itself overcomes all confusion, both of the soul and of the body. He says that the dark journey of the soul is man's soul gradually striving toward its goal, which is the pure and complete power to love. For as the mind gives man the power of reason, so the psychic life gives him the power of perpetual emotional activity. It gives him the power to feel so great and inevitably an intensity that everything else is overwhelmed. #Quote by Manly P. Hall
San Simeon quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#40. Frankly, if you do politics, you should not be thinking about your dignity. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
San Simeon quotes by Kristen Bell
#41. This is not to be cocky, but, I go over real well at Comic-Con. I've done quite a few Comic-Cons, and I enjoy the hell out of them. They are so much fun, and so bizarre. I've done the FX Show in Florida, Wizard-World in Chicago, Comic-Con in San Diego, Wonder-Con in San Francisco, the Comic-Con in New York, and I've done them numerous times. #Quote by Kristen Bell
San Simeon quotes by Angie Frazier
#42. I'm sorry," she said, wishing she could say something more meaningful.
"I'm not. If he'd been a good uncle, I'd have stayed in Boston. Never would have found my way to San Francisco," he said.
Camille knew where the rest of his story led and grinned.
"And you never would have rescued my father from a pickpocket," she added.
He started to laugh, a quiet, almost personal chuckle, like he was thinking about some funny memory. Camille caught the bug of laughter and wanted to join in.
"What is it?" she asked.
"Your father didn't need a rescuer. He caught the pickpocket himself," Oscar answered, a hand on his abdomen from all his laughter. "And then he invited him inside for dinner."
Her smile fell flat. She stared at him, trying to comprehend what he'd just said.
"You?" she asked, dumbfounded. "You were the pickpocket?"
Oscar nodded, scratching the back of his head. "Yeah. I wasn't very good at it."
Her father could have had him arrested or shooed him away without thinking twice. But he'd invited Oscar inside. He gave him work, food…a real chance.
"Why didn't he tell me?" she asked, feeling like she'd been duped once again. All the lies her father had woven to cover up his secrets had become so frayed, Camille wondered if she had truly known him at all.
"To give me a clean slate with everyone. Even you." Oscar moved toward her in cautious, deliberate steps. "We're alone. We should talk."
The pantry was cramped and d #Quote by Angie Frazier

San Simeon quotes by Laura Sydell
#44. In many ways, Apple CEO Tim Cook has been saying that and more for many years. He's said you don't have to choose between doing good and doing well. But only a few dozen people were lined up outside the Apple Store in San Francisco. That's nothing compared to the hundreds and thousands that line up for new products. Cook is taking a gamble here. #Quote by Laura Sydell
San Simeon quotes by Russell Brand
#45. Mark Twain, the thinking man's Colonel Sanders, reputedly said, America is New York, New Orleans, and San Francisco. Everywhere else is Cleveland. #Quote by Russell Brand
San Simeon quotes by Blake Crouch
#46. What do you think Nate the Nose is going to do to us when he finds out we lost his shit? We're both going to be eating San Francisco Hot Dogs, Willie." Willie's eyes got wide. Apparently the idea of having his dick cut off, boiled, and fed to him on a bun with a side of fries was several times worse than a whack to the hernia. #Quote by Blake Crouch
San Simeon quotes by Gavin Newsom
#47. San Francisco businesses face many challenges, including high rents, regulatory burdens, and the rising cost of workers compensation insurance and employee health plans. #Quote by Gavin Newsom
