dog.

Angeles, and send one to Miami." She said, "We can't do that!" I told her, "You did it last
week!"

We're told cars are dangerous. It's safer to drive through South Central Los Angeles than to
walk there. We're told cars are wasteful. Wasteful of what? Oil did a lot of good sitting in the
ground for millions of years. We're told cars should be replaced with mass transportation. But
it's hard to reach the drive-through window at McDonald's from a speeding train. And we're
told cars cause pollution. A hundred years ago city streets were ankle deep in horse
excrement. What kind of pollution do you want? Would you rather die of cancer at eighty or
typhoid fever at nine?
P. J. O'Rourke

I love Los Angeles. I love Hollywood. They're beautiful. Everybody's plastic, but I love plastic.
I want to be plastic.
Andy Warhol

Of course, in Los Angeles, everything is based on driving, even the killings. In New York, most
people don't have cars, so if you want to kill a person, you have to take the subway to their
house. And sometimes on the way, the train is delayed and you get impatient, so you have
to kill someone on the subway. That's why there are so many subway murders; no one has a
car.
George Carlin

Strip away the phoney tinsel of Hollywood and you find the real tinsel underneath.
Oscar Levant

Los Angeles is 72 suburbs in search of a city.
Dorothy Parker

Tip the world over on its side and everything loose will land in Los Angeles.
Frank Lloyd Wright

So, I live in Los Angeles, and it's kind of a goofy place. They have an airport named after
John Wayne. That ought to explain it. It has a charming kind of superstitious innocence.
George Carlin

You know, you're really nobody in LA unless you live in a house with a really big door.
Steve Martin

I don't like Los Angeles. The people are awful and terribly shallow, and everybody wants to
be famous but nobody wants to play the game. I'm from New York. I will kill to get what I
need.
Lady Gaga

Los Angeles is like a beauty parlor at the end of the universe.
Emily Mortimer

When it's 100 degrees in New York, it's 72 in Los Angeles. When it's 30 degrees in New York,
in Los Angeles it's still
72. However, there are 6 million interesting people in New York, and
only 72 in Los Angeles.
Neil Simon

In Los Angeles, everyone is a star.
Denzel Washington

If most American cities are about the consumption of culture, Los Angeles and New York are
about the production of
culture – not only national culture but global culture.
Barbara Kruger

It's (Los Angeles) mostly full of nonsense and delusion and egomania. They think they'll be
young and beautiful
forever, even though most of them aren't even young and beautiful now.
Christopher Hitchens

Los Angeles is just New York lying down.
Quentin Crisp

pageants or wore a stitch of
make-up until I went to Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is a microcosm of the United States. If L.A. falls, the country falls.
Ice T.

Los Angeles was the kind of place where everybody was from somewhere else and nobody
really droppped anchor. It
was a transient place. People drawn by the dream, people running
from the nightmare. Twelve million people and all of
them ready to make a break for it if
necessary. Figuratively, literally, metaphorically - any way you want to look at it -
everbody
in L.A. keeps a bag packed. Just in case.
Michael Connelly

Marriages that last are with people who do not live in Los Angeles.
Farrah Fawcett

Los Angeles is not what it appears to be and in a much more tolerable, humanistic way. They
pretend not to bother you here. They're not on your case.
Johnny Rotten

As far as loneliness, I feel Los Angeles and its layout, having to drive everywhere - it is a
lonely place. It's an isolated city in that respect because you're driving to places alone
listening to the radio.
Jason Schwartzman
