Citáty Dorothy Parker
„Drink and dance and laugh and lie,
Love, the reeling midnight through,
For tomorrow we shall die!
(But, alas, we never do.)“
— Dorothy Parker, Death and Taxes
"The Flaw in Paganism" in Death and Taxes (1931)
„In youth, it was a way I had,
To do my best to please.
And change, with every passing lad
To suit his theories.
But now I know the things I know
And do the things I do,
And if you do not like me so,
To hell, my love, with you.“
— Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker
— Dorothy Parker
Misattributed, Man and the Gospel (1865) by Thomas Guthrie "and you may know how little God thinks of money by observing on what bad and contemptible characters he often bestows it." “We may see the small Value God has for Riches, by the People he gives them to.” -- Alexander Pope (1727).

„I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
After four I’m under my host.“
— Dorothy Parker, The Collected Dorothy Parker

"If the doorbell rang in her apartment, she would say, 'What fresh hell can this be?' — and it wasn't funny; she meant it." You might as well live: the life and times of Dorothy Parker, John Keats (Simon Schuster, 1970, p124). Often quoted as "What fresh hell is this?" as in the title of the 1987 biography by Marion Meade, "Dorothy Parker: What Fresh Hell Is This?".
