I was an extra on 21 Jump Street when I was 19 years old.
I was so astonished that another had penetrated so deeply into the secrets of my soul, and that he knew what I did not know myself, that when I recovered from it he had already been long upon the street.
I wrote poems in my corner of the Brooks Street station. I sent them to two editors who rejected them right off. I read those letters of rejection years later and I agreed with those editors.
I'm for the Wall Street Occupiers. But will they accept me when they find out I sell packaged mortgage default instruments to children?
For what Harley Street specialist has time to understand the body, let alone the mind or both in combination, when he is a slave to thirteen thousand a year?
English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment and education - sometimes it's sheer luck, like getting across the street.
E. B. White
If you're going down the street and you're going the wrong way, remember - God permits U-turns.
There's always the hyena of morality at the garden gate, and the real wolf at the end of the street.
D. H. Lawrence
When I came up to bat with three men on and two outs in the ninth, I looked in the other team's dugout and they were already in street clothes.
The things that make me very angry are injustice and bullying. If I see someone bullying a woman or child in the street, or kicking a dog, I go completely mad.
Theater in New York is nearer to the street. In London, you have to go deep into the building, usually, to reach the place where theater happens. On Broadway, only the fire doors separate you from the sidewalk, and you're lucky if the sound of a police car doesn't rip the envelope twice a night.
The man in the street is always a stranger.
You never see a man walking down the street with a woman who has a little potbelly and a bald spot.
In the street, the gaze of desire is furtive or menacing.
The moment that you feel that just possibly you are walking down the street naked... that's the moment you may be starting to get it right.
We are living in the excesses of freedom. Just take a look at 42nd Street and Broadway.
I love being down at Occupy Wall Street. The sincerity, the youth involvement, the desire for better, is palpable and moving. There is true caring, sharing, and refreshingly naive hope.
Growing up, if I hadn't had sports, I don't know where I'd be. God only knows what street corners I'd have been standing on and God only knows what I'd have been doing, but instead I played hockey and went to school and stayed out of trouble.
I think to close half of Magic Kingdom for the purpose of a White House invitation town hall meeting on a phony main street on behalf of a phony president just strikes me as weird.
You learn how to be book smart in school, but you better not forget that you also need to be street smart.
The smartest billionaires I know never finished high school. I got my degree and my doctorate on the street and an advanced degree in jail.
The whole thing of clothes is insane. You can spend a dollar on a jacket in a thrift store. And you can spend a thousand dollars on a jacket in a shop. And if you saw those two jackets walking down the street, you probably wouldn't know which was which.
I grew up with a very big extended family, with a lot of aunts. We had about five or six houses on one street.
In the future, IKEA will become an ever more spiritual sanctuary. In the future, your dream life will increasingly look like Google street view. Everyone will be feeling the same way as you, and there's some comfort to be found there.
I can no longer walk in the street. That's over.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
