“I havent seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the companys behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
“O City city, I can sometimes hear
Beside a public bar in Lower Thames Street,
The pleasant whining of a mandolin
And a clatter and a chatter from within
Where fishmen lounge at noon.”
—T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
“For most visitors to Manhattan, both foreign and domestic, New York is the Shrine of the Good Time. I dont see how you stand it, they often say to the native New Yorker who has been sitting up past his bedtime for a week in an attempt to tire his guest out. Its all right for a week or so, but give me the little old home town when it comes to living. And, under his breath, the New Yorker endorses the transfer and wonders himself how he stands it.”
—Robert Benchley (18891945)
