Neighborhood

Famous quotes containing the word neighborhood:

    [The] elderly and timid single gentleman in Paris ... never drove down the Champs Elysees without expecting an accident, and commonly witnessing one; or found himself in the neighborhood of an official without calculating the chances of a bomb. So long as the rates of progress held good, these bombs would double in force and number every ten years.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    I grew up in a tough neighborhood and we used to say ‘you can get further with a kind word and a gun than just a kind word.’
    David Mamet, U.S. screenwriter, and Brian DePalma. Al Capone (Robert DeNiro)

    I was born and raised in a neighborhood called Noah’s Ark. If you didn’t travel in pairs, you just didn’t travel.
    Stanley Shapiro (1925–1990)
