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).
Misattributed
Varianta: If you want to know what the Lord God thinks of money, just look at those to whom he gives it.

„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

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, University of Virginia (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).

„What fresh hell is this?“

—  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?".
Varianta: What fresh hell can this be?

„Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.“

—  Dorothy Parker

"But the One on the Right" in The New Yorker (1929)
Kontext: That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.
