Citáty Dorothy Parker

„If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.“

—  Dorothy Parker
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
Variant of: I wish I could drink like a lady. “Two or three,” at the most. But two, and I’m under the table— And three, I'm under the host. The Harlequin, Volume 2, 1959, (page ? http://books.google.com/books?id=zdFKAAAAYAAJ&q=%22under+the+table%22+%22under+the+host%22) Perhaps attributed due to “One more drink and I'd have been under the host.” (see above). “ Martini Madness: Dorothy Parker didn’t write the famous quatrain about martinis that’s always attributed to her. http://www.slate.com/articles/life/drink/features/2013/martini_madness_tournament/sweet_16/dorothy_parker_martini_poem_why_the_attribution_is_spurious.html”, Troy Patterson, Slate, April 8, 2013

„Too fucking busy, and vice versa.“

—  Dorothy Parker
Response to an editor pressuring her for overdue work, as quoted in The Unimportance of Being Oscar (1968) by Oscar Levant, p. 89

„What fresh hell is this?“

—  Dorothy Parker, The Portable 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?".
