I moved from Cleveland to L.A. with a girlfriend, we broke up, and I lived out of my car for a year and a half, on the road with nothing on my mind but getting my act good enough to be on 'The Tonight Show.'
I started in theatre. I was at Cleveland and I went to London for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth.
Go to Cleveland Clinic, Mayo Clinic, or any college and you'll see libraries, dormitories, and a lot of buildings that were a result of the generosity of fat cats.
Cleveland fans are awesome.
Nine Inch Nails was born out of Cleveland, Ohio, with me and a friend in a studio working on demos at night. Got a record deal with a small, little label, went on tour in a van, and a couple years later found that somehow we touched a nerve, and that first record resonated with a bunch of people.
I tried out for 'Jeopardy' once, when they came to Cleveland, but I didn't make it.
The people of Cleveland hate soccer. But it's my favourite thing and I follow the U.S. men's national team around when they play whenever I can.
I used to go to the Cleveland Comedy Club all the time. If there was a comic I liked, I'd go see him two or three times that week. Bob Saget was one of those guys.
I never thought a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland or anywhere else was a good idea.
I like Cleveland. I like the Cavaliers. Nothing wrong with Cleveland. I have lots of friends there.
At first I wanted to be a jockey. I rode horses in Cleveland but I kept falling off and I was afraid of horses. So there wasn't much of a future in it.
Cleveland's a great place when you're a kid. You hardly ever get sunburned, without the sun shining.
It's nice to come into a town and be referred to as the manager of the Cleveland Indians instead of as the first black manager.
I'm convinced that the Great Lakes region will be at the center of an internally-focused North American economy when the hallucination of oil-powered globalism dissolves. Places like Buffalo, Cleveland, and Detroit will have a new life, but not at the scale of the twentieth century.
James Howard Kunstler
Yeah, I think there are a lot of things about Cleveland that I miss. Los Angeles is a funny place to live.
When I went around promoting 'Crumb,' there would be days I'd wake up in, like, Houston or Cleveland, and I'd step outside the hotel and get no idea where I was. It all looks the same: one big corporate, consumer theme park. It's all, 'Here's the Starbucks, and here's the Gap, and we'll go over to Banana Republic and the Cineplex.'
I do feel like a Clevelander. Every time, when people ask me, I automatically say, 'My home is Cleveland.'
I left L.A. and moved to Cleveland for four years in the early 2000s or whatever. I came back and thought that everything had changed. I was like, 'Oh my God, I don't think I ever fit in here. And wait, who are all of these celebrities that are not actors? Where did all of the actors go?'
I have enjoyed the years enormously in Cleveland and especially in Baltimore.
I grew up wanting only to be an illustrator. I studied art at Laurel School in Cleveland and at Smith College.
There was something about the Cleveland Play House that was the holiest place - you know, with the ghost light on the stage and the brick. It was just the most beautiful theater in the world.
I never did like Cleveland. Don't know why. Didn't like the town. Now, the people are all right, but I just didn't like the town.
There is much boasting among the young men about their teams as their horse and carts in Cleveland. Most of the Yorkshire men take as much delight in their ox draught as they used to do in their Horse Draught.
If somebody honks a horn in Cleveland, they're saying 'Hi.' It's so rare to be honked at in anger. When we have merging traffic, we just interweave. There's real courtesy.
Mary Doria Russell
When I was a kid growing up in Cleveland, I believed - completely, wholeheartedly, without reservation or pause - that the Cleveland Indians were named to honor a Native American ballplayer named Louis Sockalexis, who played for Cleveland in the late 19th Century.
