Famous quotes containing the words los, angeles and/or season:

    Of Eva first, that for hir wikkednesse
    Was al mankinde brought to wrecchednesse,
    For which that Jesu Crist himself was slain
    That boughte us with his herte blood again—
    Lo, heer expres of wommen may ye finde
    That womman was the los of al mankinde.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    Cities are ... distinguished by the catastrophic forms they presuppose and which are a vital part of their essential charm. New York is King Kong, or the blackout, or vertical bombardment: Towering Inferno. Los Angeles is the horizontal fault, California breaking off and sliding into the Pacific: Earthquake.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    The theater is a baffling business, and a shockingly wasteful one when you consider that people who have proven their worth, who have appeared in or been responsible for successful plays, who have given outstanding performances, can still, in the full tide of their energy, be forced, through lack of opportunity, to sit idle season after season, their enthusiasm, their morale, their very talent dwindling to slow gray death. Of finances we will not even speak; it is too sad a tale.
    Ilka Chase (1905–1978)
