Street Quotes

I've been pretty wary of street sweepers since, though it is true that since we left the European Exchange Rate Mechanism some sweepers are really quite dashing to glance at.

Tom Baker

Human beings today ... are surrounded by huge institutions we can never penetrate: the City [London's Wall Street], the banking system, political and advertising conglomerates, vast entertainment enterprises. They've made themselves user friendly, but they define the tastes to which we conform. They're rather subtle, subservient tyrants, but no less sinister for that.

James Graham Ballard

I think it well ... for the man in the street to realise that there is no power on earth that can protect him from being bombed. Whatever people may tell him, the bomber will always get through. The only defence is offence, which means that you will have to kill women and children more quickly than the enemy if you want to save yourselves.

Stanley Baldwin, 1st Earl Baldwin of Bewdley

This fact, the surfacing of structure in an undeliberate action, is too big to take on here, but it was enough to convince me that the structuraliststhe advocates of planning music before you hear or care what the plan gives youwere right: do not rely on unplanned music; it comes out as though it were planned, but planned by someone you cross the street to avoid.

Robert Ashley

But at some point, you know that you know what poem keeps going through my mind is, "first they came for the Jews." People, all of us, are like, "Well, this news doesn't really affect me." "Well, I'm not a bondholder." "Well, I'm not in the banking industry." "Well, I'm not a big CEO." "Well, I'm not on Wall Street." "Well, I'm not a car dealer." "I'm not an auto worker." Gang, at some point, they're going to come for you!

Glenn Beck

Moving in both directions, the street is full of dresses which sway, offering themselves airily, the skirts lifting; dresses which lift and yet do not lift. In the tall and narrow shop mirror I see myself approaching, rather pale and heavy-eyed. It is not a woman I want it is all women. And I seek for them in those around me, one by one...

Henri Barbusse

There were five children. In the late thirties my father built a house for us, something not too dissimilar to Miess Tugendhat house. It was wonderful to live in but strange to see on the Texas prairie. On Sundays people used to park their cars out on the street and stare. We had a routine, the family, on Sundays. We used to get up from Sunday dinner, if enough cars had parked, and run out in front of the house in a sort of chorus line, doing high kicks.

Donald Barthelme

I jumped out the lincoln, left him stinkin, put his brains in the street, now you can see what he was just thinkin.

Lamont Coleman

And behind their frail partitions Business women lie and soak, Seeing through the draughty skylight Flying clouds and railway smoke. Rest you there, poor unbelov'd ones, Lap your loneliness in heat, All too soon the tiny breakfast, Trolley-bus and windy street!

Sir John Betjeman

I cant quite define my aversion to asking questions of strangers. From snatches of family battles which I have heard drifting up from railway stations and street corners, I gather that there are a great many men who share my dislike for it, as well as an equal number of women who ... believe it to be the solution to most of this worlds problems.

Robert Charles Benchley

Of all the indignities to have been visited upon Dracula during the past century (including being the "inspiration" for a cereal and a Sesame Street character, and being lampooned by Mel Brooks), none is more unsettling than what has happened to the world's most famous vampire in Dracula 2000. Dimension Films, the exploitation division of Miramax, decided that, with their two horror franchises currently on hold (the Scream and Halloween films), they would turn their attention in another direction. So they sunk their greedy fangs into the most venerable monster they could find and sucked him dry.

James Berardinelli

Great things are done when men and mountains meet; This is not done by jostling in the street.

William Blake

There's something 'bout the way the street looks when it's just rained There's a glow off the pavement, you walk me to the car And you know I wanna ask you to dance right there In the middle of the parking lot, yeah

Taylor Swift

And I remember that fight, 2:30 a.m. As everything was slipping right out of our hands I ran out crying and you followed me out into the street Braced myself for the goodbye 'Cause that's all I've ever known Then you took me by surprise You said I'll never leave you alone

Taylor Swift

There's somethin' 'bout the way the street looks when it's just rained. There's a glow of the pavement. You walk me to the car and you know I wanna ask you to dance right there in the middle of the parking lot. Yeah.

Taylor Swift

There's something about the way the street looks when it's just rained, there's a glow on the pavement, you walk me to the car, and you know i wanna ask you to dance right there, in the middle of the parking lot, yeah

Taylor Swift

So it happens, for instance, that a man who sees another man on the street corner with only a stump for an arm will be so shocked the first time that he'll give him sixpence. But the second time it'll only be a threepenny bit. And if he sees him a third time, he'll hand him over cold-bloodedly to the police.

Eugen Berthold Friedrich Brecht

I hope the feds aint layin cross the street in that Blue Cherrokee, tryin to take me from my family hollarin bout Conspiracy.

Lil Boosie

A lot of street crime is horrible, but in terms of the dislocation, the undermining of the family the corporate criminals, many of whom reside in Congress and the White House are getting away literally with murder.
