Scribners New York quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright

Scribners New York quotes by Rod Serling
#4. Farewell, Timothy Riley's Bar," Lane said softly. "Home of the nickel beer. Snooker emporium. Repository of Bluebird records, three for a dime. We honor you and your passing. Farewell. Farewell, Timothy Riley - and terraplanes and rumbleseats and saddle shoes and Helen Forrest and the Triple-C camps and Andy Hardy and Lum 'n' Abner and the world-champion New York Yankees! Rest in peace, you age of innocence - you beautiful, serene, carefree, pre-Pearl Harbor, long summer night. We'll never see your likes again. #Quote by Rod Serling
Scribners New York quotes by Christa Miller
#5. I grew up in New York City, and both my parents worked. On weekends, we'd go out to the country, and on Sunday nights we'd come back. Sometimes we were a little cranky - it was a long drive. But we could always look forward to one thing: my mother's ziti and meat sauce. #Quote by Christa Miller
Scribners New York quotes by Ayn Rand
#6. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible. What other religion do we need? And then people tell me about pilgrimages to some dank pesthole in a jungle where they go to do homage to a crumbling temple, to a leering stone monster with a pot belly, created by some leprous savage. Is it beauty and genius they want to see? Do they seek a sense of the sublime? Let them come to New York, stand on the shore of the Hudson, look and kneel. When #Quote by Ayn Rand
Scribners New York quotes by Leopold Sedar Senghor
#7. New York! I say New York, let black blood flow into your blood.
Let it wash the rust from your steel joints, like an oil of life
Let it give your bridges the curve of hips and supple vines.
Now the ancient age returns, unity is restored,
The recociliation of the Lion and Bull and Tree
Idea links to action, the ear to the heart, sign to meaning.
See your rivers stirring with musk alligators
And sea cows with mirage eyes. No need to invent the Sirens.
Just open your eyes to the April rainbow
And your eyes, especially your ears, to God
Who in one burst of saxophone laughter
Created heaven and earth in six days,
And on the seventh slept a deep Negro sleep. #Quote by Leopold Sedar Senghor
Scribners New York quotes by J.D. Salinger
#8. When Seymour and I were five and three, Les and Bessie played on the same bill for a couple of weeks with Joe Jackson -- the redoubtable Joe Jackson of the nickel-plated trick bicycle that shone like something better than platinum to the very last row of the theater. A good many years later, not long after the outbreak of the Second World War, when Seymour and I had just recently moved into a small New York apartment of our own, our father -- Les, as he'll be called hereafter -- dropped in on us one evening on his way home from a pinochle game. He quite apparently had held very bad cards all afternoon. He came in, at any rate, rigidly predisposed to keep his overcoat on. He sat. He scowled at the furnishings. He turned my hand over to check for cigarette-tar stains on my fingers, then asked Seymour how many cigarettes he smoked a day. He thought he found a fly in his highball. At length, when the conversation -- in my view, at least -- was going straight to hell, he got up abruptly and went over to look at a photograph of himself and Bessie that had been newly tacked up on the wall. He glowered at it for a full minute, or more, then turned around, with a brusqueness no one in the family would have found unusual, and asked Seymour if he remembered the time Joe Jackson had given him, Seymour, a ride on the handle bars of his bicycle, all over the stage, around and around. Seymour, sitting in an old corduroy armchair across the room, a cigarette going, wearing a blue shirt, gray #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Scribners New York quotes by Bruce Crown
#9. The sun tried to shine through the clouds but its light was dimmed even in us; high noon approached. I looked outside through the tinted windows at the people promenading down Madison. Couples held hands, bankers squeezed through crowds of window shoppers late for their daily thieving but all of them, even the poor, seemed content with existence, some even seemed happy. Nearly everyone's outer shell was delicate and gracious that at the end of it all, on the border of nonexistence, each and everyone was happy to be alive. Everyone carried their heads with a radiance past the space they occupied and glided through time like flamenco dancers in a studio as big as the planet. Everyone wore masks that hid their sorrow (either that or they were sincerely happy) or wore armor that lightened the burden on their shoulders. Worst of all, I could not detect ever a flicker of thought; brains mired behind viral images and videos of people making even greater fools of themselves than they already were. And as the greatest fool of them all, I walked among them, never having learned to don the mask of happiness. #Quote by Bruce Crown
Scribners New York quotes by Quvenzhane Wallis
#10. I loved experiencing city life in New York. #Quote by Quvenzhane Wallis
Scribners New York quotes by Yogi Berra
#11. I don't see how he lost five games during the season. #Quote by Yogi Berra
Scribners New York quotes by Ishmael Reed
#12. The last publicized center of American writing was Manhattan. Its writers became known as the New York Intellectuals. With important connections to publishing, and universities, with access to the major book reviews, they were able to pose as the vanguard of American culture when they were so obsessed with the two Joes
McCarthy and Stalin
that they were to produce only two artists, Saul Bellow and Philip Roth, who left town. #Quote by Ishmael Reed
Scribners New York quotes by Kenneth Anger
#13. The music rights at the time cost me $12,000 in 1964 money, which is about double now or whatever. But I cleared everything. I had a lawyer in New York. And it was cleared for use in a short subject, not a feature. #Quote by Kenneth Anger
Scribners New York quotes by Eddie Trunk
#14. In a way, Jersey really supports rock, maybe more than New York City and Long Island. I know plenty of bands that tour and do much better at Starland or other clubs in New Jersey than others in the tri-state area. #Quote by Eddie Trunk
Scribners New York quotes by James Purdy
#15. As always, I wonder if I'll get through the winter. Then when winter is over, I wonder about the summer. But that's because the system decided which author shall be commercially successful. As I said, the most vicious of them all is The New York Times, because it pretends to be literary and impartial, and it's really this opinionated, myopic, stupid giant of incompetence. #Quote by James Purdy
Scribners New York quotes by Jill Soloway
#16. My sister and I created a show called 'The Real Life Brady Bunch,' which was sort of a theatrical sensation that got us attention in L.A. and New York. #Quote by Jill Soloway
Scribners New York quotes by Ezra Miller
#17. Housing Works is the coolest thrift store in the world, because not only are they the best thrift store - they're not the most thrifty thrift store - but they have amazing stuff and all of their proceeds go directly to kids, mostly homeless kids, living with AIDS and HIV in New York, in the metropolitan area. #Quote by Ezra Miller
Scribners New York quotes by Sanjay Suri
#18. Two tragedies, one in New Delhi, one in New York; 3,000 killed in one, 3,000 killed in the other. But what a difference for those the killings left behind. In New York the government went after the attackers, in Delhi the government and its police made sure first that the attacks were not stopped, and then that the government not go after the killers. It made a difference too that in New York they were attacked by obvious aliens, in Delhi the aliens had arisen from among the victims. America got Osama bin Laden in the end to get some justice. The Delhi killings never did lead to justice. #Quote by Sanjay Suri
Scribners New York quotes by David Letterman
#19. Today coming to work, I saw one of those only in New York scenes. It was a rat who had passed out after choking on a pretzel. #Quote by David Letterman
Scribners New York quotes by Richard Branson
#20. New York to Tokyo could be less than an hour. You could be traveling at 19,000 miles per hour orbitally. After we've done the space program, we will be producing supersonic planes, which will go far, far, faster than Concorde. #Quote by Richard Branson
Scribners New York quotes by Derek Jeter
#21. We just want to win. That's the bottom line. I think a lot of times people may become content with one championship or a little bit of success, but we don't really reflect on what we've done in the past. We focus on the present. #Quote by Derek Jeter
Scribners New York quotes by Nora Ephron
#22. If only I had grown up worshipping Julia Child. I was already grown up - thank you very much - when Julia Child's book was published. When I moved to New York in 1962, you had to own it. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Scribners New York quotes by Edith Wharton
#23. He did not in the least wish the future Mrs. Newland Archer to be a simpleton. He meant her (thanks to his enlightening companionship) to develop a social tact and readiness of wit enabling her to hold her own with the most popular married women of the 'younger set,' in which it was the recognized custom to attract masculine homage while playfully discouraging it. If he had probed to the bottom of his vanity (as he sometimes nearly did) he would have found there the wish that his wife should be as worldly-wise and eager to please as the married lady whose charms had held his fancy through two mildly agitated years; without, of course, any hint of the frailty which had so nearly marred that unhappy being's life, and had disarranged his own plans for a whole winter.

How this miracle of fire and ice was to be created, and to sustain itself in a harsh world, he had never taken the time to think out; but he was content to hold his view without analyzing it, since he knew it was that of all the carefully-brushed, white-waistcoated, buttonhole-flowered gentlemen who succeeded each other in the club box, exchanged friendly greetings with him, and turned their opera-glasses critically on the circle of ladies who were the product of the system. In matters intellectual and artistic Newland Archer felt himself distinctly the superior of these chosen specimens of old New York gentility; he had probably read more, thought more, and even seen a good deal more of the world, than a #Quote by Edith Wharton

#24. First reporter to broadcast live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. #Quote by Maria Bartiromo
Scribners New York quotes by Sylvia Plath
#25. I said to myself: Doreen is dissolving, Lenny Shepherd is dissolving, Frankie is dissolving, New York is dissolving, they are all dissolving away and none of them matter any more. I don't know them, I have never known them and I am very pure. All that liquor and those sticky kisses I saw and the dirt that settled on my skin on the way back is turning into something pure. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Scribners New York quotes by Isabella Johns
#26. Here's what happens when a single mom meets New York City's hottest fireman…

"Then…seductively…as if he received instruction not from the FDNY's training school but at Chippendale's…he slowly inches each suspender off his bare shoulders."

"You must know that exhilarating feeling of a man's body on top of yours, all that power and muscle pressing you into the bed, the glorious taste of his tongue in your mouth, the manly scent that washes over you and makes you want to melt underneath him."

"Let's not forget about his nine inches of shapely fireman hose dangling so close in front of my face the scent launches me into a blissful fever."

"Every place he touches contradicts his chosen profession, because instead of putting out a fire he surely starts one."

"I'm so darn helpless in the arms of this powerful, young, ripped personification of New York's Bravest that I feel myself about to erupt in the most earth shattering explosion since Mount Vesuvius last announced her presence."

"I wonder if he could be enticed to show us a few maneuvers on the brass pole."

"He orchestrates his own personal opera, inspiring high notes with kisses and licks along my elongated nipples, and deep moans with hands that caress my belly."

"We are drawn uncontrollably to each other and have no power to resist, only the tremendous desire to experience everything in its most intense form. #Quote by Isabella Johns
Scribners New York quotes by Carey Mulligan
#27. People in New York just seem a lot more open than I thought they would be. #Quote by Carey Mulligan
Scribners New York quotes by Anne Dillard
#28. The new Episcopalian and Catholic liturgies include a segment called "passing the peace." Many things can go wrong here. I know of one congregation in New York which fired its priest because he insisted on their passing the peace- which involves nothing more than shaking hands with your neighbors in the pew. The men and women of this small congregation had limits to their endurance; passing the peace was beyond their limits. They could not endure shaking hands with people to whom they bore lifelong grudges. They fired the priest and found a new one sympathetic to their needs" Anne Dillard- Teaching a Stone to Talk- An Expedition to the Pole #Quote by Anne Dillard
Scribners New York quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#29. New York City is a place where you can lock yourself up in your little studio apartment, and not go outside at all, and not feel in the slightest guilty about it. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Scribners New York quotes by Michael Bloomberg
#30. We're [New York] the world's second home, the place where every religion is practiced and every culture is celebrated. #Quote by Michael Bloomberg
Scribners New York quotes by Jason Wu
#31. It's nice to be able to be whoever you want to be. I moved to New York for that reason. I think I am a very good example of how you really can do whatever you want to do without having any kind of prerequisite experience of any of kind of connection. None of my family members came from this world. #Quote by Jason Wu
Scribners New York quotes by Kanika Bankhad
#32. The different shades of crowd, buildings and density amazed her. Hailing from a much less populated town, New York appeared like a fire cracker, a show stopper; as if mocking those who didn't believe in carnivals, forcing people who lived on streets to dream of the sky rises and simply finding excuses to celebrate and shriek! This was New York, the home to beggars and billionaires, to actors and artisans, to werewolves and humans… #Quote by Kanika Bankhad
Scribners New York quotes by Deborah Meyler
#33. The Christmas trees are brought from Vermont by monosyllabic men in warm clothes; they seem alien, closer to the earth, silently contemptuous, like gypsies. They bring in their trees and stand them up on the pavements, so that swaths of Broadway are suddenly transformed into dark, pine-scented avenues. #Quote by Deborah Meyler
Scribners New York quotes by Dustin Hoffman
#34. Money is another pressure. I'm not complaining, I'm just saying that there's a certain luxury in having no money. I spent ten years in New York not having it, not worrying about it. Suddenly you have it, then you worry, where is it going? Am I doing the right thing with it? #Quote by Dustin Hoffman
Scribners New York quotes by Anonymous
#35. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman told one of the authors in Seoul, South Korea, a de cade ago that he has always followed one piece of advice that his MIT professors had given him: "Never touch the money system." Krugman was awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2008. #Quote by Anonymous
Scribners New York quotes by Jessica Verdi
#36. There's something about New York City that gives you permission to just be. There's no need for pretense, no need for masks. You can be real, without risk. The buildings are your protectors, the streets are your tethers. The people ... you will never see them again. Even when they're right in front of you, you don't see them. Not really. Just as they don't really see you. New York is beautifully anonymous. #Quote by Jessica Verdi
Scribners New York quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#37. So I went to New York City to be born again. It was and remains easy for most Americans to go somewhere else and start anew. I wasn't like my parents. I didn't have any supposedly sacred piece of land or shoals of friends to leave behind. Nowhere has the number zero been of more philisophical value than in the United States ... and when the [train] plunged into a tunnel under New York City, with it's lining of pipes and wires, I was out of the womb and into the birth canal. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Scribners New York quotes by Nancy McKeon
#38. I started working at the age of 2, doing commercials and modeling in New York. #Quote by Nancy McKeon
Scribners New York quotes by Merritt Wever
#39. I went to really good New York City public schools that had arts programs. So in junior high, I got into the drama department. From there, I went to a performing arts high school in New York City called Laguardia and I just kind of fell into the professional side by happenstance. #Quote by Merritt Wever
Scribners New York quotes by Ron Paul
#40. In a free society we're supposed to know the truth.. In a society where truth becomes treason, then we're in big trouble. And now, people who are revealing the truth are getting into trouble for it.. This is media, isn't it? I mean, why don't we prosecute The New York Times or anybody that releases this? #Quote by Ron Paul
Scribners New York quotes by Andrew Cherng
#41. It is an honor to open in New York City and to have the opportunity to serve and share our family's version of American Chinese food and hospitality. New York City deeply influenced my passion for food and service, and it feels good to be back. #Quote by Andrew Cherng
Scribners New York quotes by Daniel Libeskind
#42. We will work with everybody for the good of New York. #Quote by Daniel Libeskind
Scribners New York quotes by Linda Evangelista
#43. I was a hoarder, and I got rid of everything. Now nothing comes in my home unless it has a purpose. And decor is not a purpose. Home is New York apartment with a table, a bed and sofas. That's it. Everything else is gone. #Quote by Linda Evangelista
Scribners New York quotes by Derek Jeter
#44. I try to stay as private as possible; I know that's difficult, especially playing here in New York, but I make an attempt at it. #Quote by Derek Jeter
Scribners New York quotes by Jerry Orbach
#45. I think the choice of actors that we have is a little more varied and rich here in New York than in L.A. #Quote by Jerry Orbach
Scribners New York quotes by Mel Torme
#46. It may sound a bit like an army barracks, but the truth of the matter is: there must be some time laid aside for arranging, time for working on either a book or an article - I've written two articles in the last four months for the New York Times book review section. #Quote by Mel Torme
Scribners New York quotes by Jay Leno
#47. The New York Times is reporting that back in the '60s, presidential candidate Howard Dean used a letter from a doctor about a back condition to keep himself out of the draft in Vietnam and then spent 10 months skiing. Well it sounds like he's done the impossible. He actually made Bill Clinton and George Bush look like war heroes. #Quote by Jay Leno
