Famous quotes containing the word yorkers:

    When a village ceases to be a community, it becomes oppressive in its narrow conformity. So one becomes an individual and migrates to the city. There, finding others likeminded, one re- establishes a village community. Nowadays only New Yorkers are yokels.
    Paul Goodman (1911–1972)

    We New Yorkers see more death and violence than most soldiers do, grow a thick chitin on our backs, grimace like a rat and learn to do a disappearing act. Long ago we outgrew the need to be blowhards about our masculinity; we leave that to the Alaskans and Texans, who have more time for it.
    Edward Hoagland (b. 1932)

    New Yorkers love it when you spill your guts out there. Spill your guts at Wimbledon and they make you stop and clean it up.
    Jimmy Connors (b. 1952)
