A city with one newspaper, or with a morning and an evening paper under one ownership, is like a man with one eye, and often the eye is glass.

- Aaron Lazar

Having Created

We couldn't pitch the show without having created one, at least one 20 to 25 minute version of 'Broad City.' We wouldn't know how to describe it.

Love College

I love Maira Kalman. She's an amazing illustrator and writer. I've loved her since I was in college, but when I moved to New York and experienced the same city she was drawing and writing about, I developed a whole new appreciation. Her work made me observe everything so much deeper and more joyfully.

- Abbi Jacobson

Young Before

Before 'Broad City,' I had a lot of jobs that I knew were not for me, but when you're young and don't know exactly what you're going to do, if an opportunity comes up, you feel like, 'This is an opportunity; I have to try it.'

- Abbi Jacobson

Country Some

I'm going to do anything I can do - whether that's being part of FIFA or creating some sort of movement that can actually impart real equality across all lines - in every country, every city, every sector all over the world, that's what I'm going to do.

- Abby Wambach

New New York City

- Abigail Breslin

Garden Made

God the first garden made, and the first city Cain.

- Abraham Cowley

Industry Very

New York as an industry is the best city for real estate. You're in a very transparent market. If you need to liquidate, you make three phone calls and you could sell something, even in the worst market. It is also less forgiving; if you make a mistake you can lose money.

- Aby Rosen

Reach Audience

I'm conflicted with theater in the city because you want to reach a diverse audience, and that audience doesn't typically go to the theater.

- Adam Driver

Los Angeles

Los Angeles can be a really sad city.

Arrested Weeks

Cole Archer's Chillout Mix. That's my son's mix. He's ten weeks old, and this is what he listens to: 'Valerie' by Amy Winehouse, 'Everyday People' by Arrested Development, The Beatles' 'Rocky Raccoon,' and Bruce Springsteen's 'Atlantic City.'

- Adam Pally

London Same

London is a vast, complex city designed by the same guy who created the Habitrail.

Death Been

Pergamon, a prosperous city in western Anatolia, was fabled to have been founded by Hercules' son. Like many Hellenistic cities populated by Greeks who intermarried with indigenous people, Pergamon after Alexander the Great's death (323 B.C.) had evolved a hybrid of democracy and Persian-influenced monarchy.

- Adrienne Mayor

Streets Use

I have the same sense of discovery and exhilaration from objects of design and everyday use - I am inspired by the buildings in my city, by park greenery and dazzling store windows, by the jaunty strollers and umbrellas and billboards I walk past. Just strolling our streets, we encounter creativity every single day.

- Agnes Gund

Beginning Project

I see the Beijing National Stadium as an architectural project. I accepted Herzog and De Meuron's invitation to collaborate on the design, and our proposal won the competition. From beginning to end, I stayed with the project. I am committed to fostering relationships between a city and its architecture.

- Ai Weiwei

My Life United

I'm a New Yorker. I was there during 9/11 and I saw how, not only New York City stopped for a moment, we all took an inhale and exhale at the same time - the world united at that time, and it changed my life.

- Aisha Hinds

My Life I Think

I'm a New Yorker. I was there during 9/11, and I saw how, not only New York City stopped for a moment, we all took an inhale and exhale at the same time - the world united at that time, and it changed my life. I think millions of people were forever changed.

- Aisha Hinds

Beautiful More

The City gets more and more beautiful every time I come home.

I've lived in so many different towns - Guttenberg, Union City, West New York, Jersey City. We didn't have a lot of money, and we'd get kicked out of places a lot.

- AJ Lee

Education Death

When we look at the situation in Ferguson, Missouri and the tragic death of Michael Brown, we are reminded of the importance of who we elect to our city councils, who sits on our local board of education committees, who we pick to represent us in Congress, in the Senate and more.

- Al Sharpton

Country Spirit

The restaurants express the spirit of the chef, the spirit of the city, the country.

Discover Will

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself.

- Alan Alda

Wait Movie

The last time I heard real screaming in the theatre was when I went to see a movie I did years ago, called 'Wait Until Dark.' Now, my mother was the least emotional person on the planet, but when I got killed in the movie, she stood up and screamed, 'That's my son!' At Radio City Music Hall in New York!

- Alan Arkin

Will Smith

It was fun working with Will Smith; it was fun working with Alex Proyas, who is another sci-fi guy with 'Dark City.'

Love Career

The fans know and the Cardinals know that I want to be a Cardinal for my whole career. I love this city. The way that this city has embraced me and my family.

- Albert Pujols

Rather Dropped

Winning times in the New York City Marathon have not dropped all that much over the years, but rather U.S. runners went backward. In 1983, there were 267 U.S. men who broke 2:20 in a marathon, and by 2000 that number was down to 27.

- Alberto Salazar

Use Nay

Not houses finely roofed or the stones of walls well builded, nay nor canals and dockyards make the city, but men able to use their opportunity.

- Alcaeus

Tries Out

New Orleans is New Orleans. It's a great city and fun and great food. It's one of those cities that when you are working hard hours like we work, you have to do as much as possible to stay out of trouble. Not much of a problem for me, but in New Orleans, trouble tries so much to find you.

- Aldis Hodge

Would New York City

I don't think acting is addictive. If I stopped acting tomorrow, I really wouldn't care. If you told me that I would have to sell real estate in New York City to look after my family, that would be fine with me.

- Alec Baldwin

Long Some

There are some times when you make films and you travel places, and the take that people in the business have is that the worst way to see a city is to shoot there, because you work these long 12, 13 and 14-hour days, and you go home to the hotel, you eat, and you pass out.

- Alec Baldwin

Some Charities

I've had a relatively charmed life. I loved to be out in the city. New York was my town. I've had people come up to me and say, 'You're a great New Yorker. You've given your time and money to so many New York charities. You're a great supporter of the arts. I like some of your movies - and some of your movies suck, actually.'

- Alec Baldwin

Thought Pat

Antonio Sanchez is from Mexico City. I met him at a Pat Metheny concert. He did a solo, and I thought, 'This is an octopus man!'

Die Streets

When you live in a city, as I do, where violence is really in the streets, and people die every day, there's nothing funny about it.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

- Alessandro Michele

Canada Always

Everywhere I go, every city, they're always like, 'What's in the water in Canada? What's in the water in Toronto?'

- Alessia Cara

Inside Other

I grew up in this little city called Brampton. It's pretty suburban - there's not a lot going on. In my neighbourhood, specifically, there weren't a lot of other kids so I would just spend a lot of time inside.

- Alessia Cara

Trump Donald

'Ecological sensitivity' is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump. He doesn't even believe in global warming. But this is because he is a city boy.

- Alex Shoumatoff

Deep Bicycle

Deep walkability describes a city that is built in such a way that you can move from one area to another on foot, on bicycle, on transit and have an experience that remains a pleasant one, that you feel you are welcome not just in the neighborhood but moving between neighborhoods.

- Alex Steffen

Works Quickly

If we're talking about transportation, the best thing a city can do is densify as quickly as it can. That needs to be said every time this issue comes up, because it's the only universal strategy that works.

- Alex Steffen

Office Allowed

The day in 2011 that I went to the office of the city clerk in lower Manhattan with my partner Dustin to register for our domestic partnership was coincidentally also the first day same-sex partners were allowed to register for marriage in the state of New York.

Edinburgh Used

Edinburgh used to be a haughty city.

- Alexander McCall Smith

Kid Definitely

I'm definitely a city kid.

- Alexander Skarsgard

One Of The Things

One of the things I noticed while I lived in New York City was how different the kids and teens were that grew up there versus, you know, my suburban upbringing. They have this innate resilience and toughness to them, and they're incredibly self-sufficient, usually from a pretty young age.

- Alexandra Bracken

Color Before

When you seek out - or seek to avoid - your own reflection, the modern city becomes a hall of mirrors: car windows, reflective walls, and plate glass are everywhere, transmitting a cacophony of different versions of you - this one too short, that one too wide, another one with a sickly color you've never seen before.

- Alexandra Kleeman

Very Needed

I played very well in AC Milan, but I had two years of injury problems. I needed to change team and the city for my mentality.

- Alexandre Pato

Need Tent

We need a real tent city in the heart of Moscow.

- Alexei Navalny

Fruit Stores

If I won the lottery I'd start a charity that helped little family hardware stores, cobblers and fruit shops open in city centres.

- Alexei Sayle

I Think Francisco

I think Hitchcock had a thing about hills: think of the house on the hill in 'Psycho.' Then, in 'Vertigo,' Scottie is forever traversing the city, going downhill all the time as he goes deeper and deeper into himself. It's as if Hitchcock is using San Francisco as a psychological map.

- Allen Coulter

Education United

A person like myself, born and raised in the inner city of Atlanta, Georgia, to lower-middle-class parents. But I had the opportunity to get an education, to go and earn a commission in the United States Army, to serve for 22 years, to lead men and women in combat.

- Allen West

Country Couple

When I first got out of school, I went on a children's theater tour, and I went around the country a little bit that fall, and it was the first time I went to Chicago. We spend a couple of days in Chicago, and I was really struck viscerally by the city.

- Allison Tolman

Sex Grave

A lot of guys I know loved 'Sex and the City.' They'll take it to their grave, but they watched every episode of it.

Will Somebody

The most that somebody in Mexico City will get paid for a job in construction is 100 pesos a day.

- Alma Guillermoprieto

Build Opera

I tell you, it is easier to build a grand opera or a city center than to build a personal house.

- Alvar Aalto

Boom Brought

In 'Where the Air is Clear', Carlos Fuentes composed a polyphonic portrait of Mexico City amid the growth and modernization brought on by the economic boom of the 1950s. The novel can be read as a jazz interpretation - free and in a Mexican key - of John Dos Passos' 'Manhattan Transfer'.

- Alvaro Enrigue

19th Century Became

If you read the poets of the 19th century in Latin America, you would see that Havana or Mexico City or Buenos Aires are incredibly modern and global cities that they were not. And eventually they became real, and they became real because people read these books and tried to live in a better world.

- Alvaro Enrigue

Education Medical

My opportunity to design school choice systems began in 2003 with a phone call from Jeremy Lack at the New York City Department of Education. He knew of my work on the medical match and wondered if similar efforts might help reorganize the dysfunctional, congested system then used to match students to high schools.

- Alvin E. Roth

Country Big

My favorite country blues player was Big Bill Broonzy. City blues was Freddie King, but I liked them all - Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Ralph Willis, Lonnie Johnson, Brownie McGhee and the three Kings, B.B., Albert and Freddie. Jazz-wise, I listened to Django, Barney Kessel and Wes Montgomery.

- Alvin Lee

Children White

I was put in White City children's home when I was 15.

- Amanda de Cadenet

New Rural

My preferred environment is by the sea or somewhere rural. I don't want to be in a city, I don't want to visit New York and I don't want to go shopping.

- Amanda Donohoe

Color New

A typical native New Yorker, I'm prone to wearing the city's unofficial sartorial color: black.

- Amanda Hearst

Style Show

If you've got style, you'll show it, no matter the city.

- Amar'e Stoudemire

Country Belong

I come from no country, from no city, no tribe. I am the son of the road... all tongues and all prayers belong to me. But I belong to none of them.

- Amin Maalouf

Born Capital

My mother was born in Latvia. She and most of her family fled from the capital city of Riga in 1944 with the final approach of the Soviet army.

- Amity Gaige

Hall City Hall

In every school, community center, city hall, and state capitol, there are women who are making their voices heard and standing up for the people they serve - women who aren't just demanding change but finding ways to create it. They are making an impact, and along the way, they're inspiring others to do the same.

- Amy Klobuchar

New Always

I stayed in New York City for the first time, I'd always wanted to do that.

- Amy Sedaris

Always Lived

I've always lived in a city.

- Ana Gasteyer

New York New

I was born and raised in New York City, Manhattan, uptown.

- Ana Ortiz

Upstate New York

The most important thing is to find the balance between city and nature. I have that 'hippie quality' - my husband is a super-hippie Los Angeles boy - so we'll have to make time to go to Puerto Rico, and upstate New York, and be sure we get to do outdoorsy stuff like that.

- Ana Ortiz

New Always

Being in New York City is the best because I'm always walking, taking the subway and walking up and down the stairs - whether you like it or not, you're going to get exercise.

- Ana Ortiz

Figure Could

I could never really figure out why people would live in a kibbutz. I'm such a city girl.

- Anat Cohen

Joining City Council

I am joining the government not from the academic position but from St. Petersburg city council.

- Anatoly Chubais

Whole Local Level

I joined the city government, and we start to operate as the bureaucrats on the local level, so we were the only ones in the whole Russian team who were experienced in practical bureaucratic management in the complicated condition of 1990.

- Anatoly Chubais

Woman I Think

I think 'Nathan for You' is a really funny show, along with 'The Grinder' and 'Baskets.' I really like 'Man Seeking Woman.' It's the coolest show because they just do weird stuff, and it doesn't feel weird; they make it normal somehow, which I applaud. And 'Broad City' - I think those guys are awesome.

- Anders Holm

Young Couple

I've written a couple of scripts. Actually, a pilot. I'm not sure I'm allowed to say, but it's a comedy about three young men in New York City, one of whom may or may not be a romantic like me.

- Andre Holland

Show Sights

A day off after a show with no agenda in a foreign city is about the most fertile creative situation I can imagine. Just walking with nothing to do, killing time and hearing the sights and sounds of an unfamiliar place.

- Andrew Bird

Feels Influenced

It is an honor to open in New York City and to have the opportunity to serve and share our family's version of American Chinese food and hospitality. New York City deeply influenced my passion for food and service, and it feels good to be back.

- Andrew Cherng

China Beijing

Beijing is my favorite city in China.

- Andrew Lau

Cool Incredibly

Atlanta is an incredibly cool city.

- Andrew Lincoln

Going Been

I've been going to Granada for many years and 12 years ago bought a house a few miles outside the city.

- Alexei Sayle

Distance Been

At a certain stage in his evolution, man himself had been able to lay hold upon a higher order of things, which raised him above the level of the beasts that perish, and enabled him to see, at least in the distance, the shining towers of the City of God.

- Alfred Noyes

Yelling Other

You just let your lower self go, and then it takes on all these aspects of the society - the city with horns blowing, the people yelling things at each other, and the all-in-all violence and chaos of the city. Put that on stage with music, and that's what this is.

- Alice Cooper

New Happen

City people live the city. We live in L.A., New York, we live in places where it's chaotic and you never know what's gonna happen. And that's the music - you never know what's gonna happen.

- Alice Cooper

New York City Part

I believed in fictional characters as if they were a part of real life. Poetry was important, too. My parents had memorized poems from their days attending school in New York City and loved reciting them. We all enjoyed listening to these poems and to music as well.

- Alice McDermott

Been Other

I just wanted to be who I was, which was like so many other girls I knew. We grew up in the city, had a hard edge and obstacles to overcome, but we were still young and beautiful. I didn't want to be all dressed up, all made up - I wanted to be myself, which hadn't been done before.

- Alicia Keys

Happy Some

I was so happy that it filmed in New York not only because it's an amazing city, but also because a lot of people across the world somehow started to think about New York as a dangerous place to be and envisioned it as some war zone after that happened.

- Alicia Witt
