Quotes Belinda Liked

Dorothy Parker
“All I have to be thankful for in this world is that I was sitting down when my garter busted.”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker
“What fresh hell is this?”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker
“I know this will come as a shock to you, Mr. Goldwyn, but in all history, which has held billions and billions of human beings, not a single one ever had a happy ending.”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker
“Her big heart did not, as is so sadly often the case, inhabit a big bosom.”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker

“There was a reason for the cost of those perfectly plain black dresses.”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker
“Men
They hail you as their morning star
Because you are the way you are.
If you return the sentiment,
They'll try to make you different;
And once they have you, safe and sound,
They want to change you all around.
Your moods and ways they put a curse on;
They'd make of you another person.
They cannot let you go your gait;
They influence and educate.
They'd alter all that they admired.
They make me sick, they make me tired.”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker
“I won't telephone him. I'll never telephone him again as long as I live. He'll rot in hell, before I'll call him up. You don't have to give me strength, God; I have it myself. If he wanted me, he could get me. He knows where I am. He knows I'm waiting here. He's so sure of me, so sure. I wonder why they hate you, as soon as they are sure of you.”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker
“You think You're frightening me with Your hell, don't You? You think Your hell is worse than mine.”
Dorothy Parker, The Portable Dorothy Parker
