London

Total Quotes : 843
Werewolf Part

My earliest memories of horror are 'Friday the 13th Part 2,' John Carpenter's 'The Thing,' 'Halloween,' 'An American Werewolf in London,' and 'A Nightmare On Elm Street'... and 'Hatchet' is so obviously inspired by those films that I may as well have made it in 1984.

- Adam Green

Love Dad

I love all kinds of music. My dad's from London, so he loves David Bowie, the Stones, The Clash. I grew up with that influence while loving poetry and loving all kinds of current music.

City Same

- Adam Schlesinger

About By The Time

By the time I auditioned for 'Aliens in America,' the July 7 bombing had happened in London. So I'd had those experiences where I would get onto the Tube, and people would get off. So there was a lot about Raja that I understood.

- Adhir Kalyan

Play Putting

I used to play rugby, polo, tennis, and cricket in school. It was only in the 1990s, when I used to live just opposite Harrods in London, that I started putting on weight. I used to have my breakfast there every day.

Career Move

To make a career as an Irish actor, generally it's the case that you move to London. When you make that move, you do tend to stand out.

- Aidan Turner

Overwhelmed Almost

When I first walked in to London, I was so overwhelmed by the village, the sheer volume of people. I was just so excited. You don't know what to expect. So the level of excitement was almost draining, just taking everything in. I was so exhausted after I swam because of all the excitement in the build-up.

- Aimee Willmott

Other Sociable

A city like London is sociable in a sense that there are people gathering in bars and restaurants, concerts and lectures. Yet you can partake of all these experiences and never say hello to anyone new. And one of the things that all religions do is take groups of strangers into a space and say it is OK to talk to each other.

- Alain de Botton

Monaco Developed

In each restaurant, I develop a different culinary sensibility. In Paris, I'm more classic, because that's what customers like. In Monaco, it's classic Mediterranean haute cuisine. In London, it's a contemporary French restaurant that I've developed with a U.K. influence and my French know-how.

- Alain Ducasse

Important Most

London is the most important city in the world for restaurants.

- Alain Ducasse

Paris Very

In Paris we have bistros, then we have fine dining. In London, you have a very contemporary scene with mixed influences.

Harmony Perfectly

When I arrived, I didn't understand London customers perfectly, but we've developed the right style with the right price, and step by step, I'm in harmony with London.

- Alain Ducasse

Beginning Very

It's striking and unique in London how you know to create this alchemy between the concept, the food, the music, the staff. From the beginning to the end, with all these different elements, it tells a full story that you know very well how to develop and cultivate.

- Alain Ducasse

Paris Places

If I had the choice to travel to two places in Europe, it would be Paris and London.

- Alain Ducasse

Cook Come

Believe me, I did not come to London to cook farmed fish. All my fish are wild.

Need Would

In London, there is no need for 25 high-end gastronomic restaurants. That would be too much.

- Alain Ducasse

Husband Basket

My grandmother flew only once in her life, and that was the day she and her new husband ascended into the skies of Victorian London in the wicker basket of a hot-air balloon. They were soon to emigrate to Canada, and the aerial ride was meant to be a last view of their beloved England.

- Alan Bradley

Thought I Remember

The one I remember is going into London, as it was for us in Essex, on New Year's Eve in 1981. There were four of us and we'd had a few lagers on the way. One of my mates threw up in the Tube and then stood up and fell over in it. We thought it was the funniest thing we'd ever seen.

- Alan Davies

Journey Involves

I don't drive around London much. Any journey around Islington involves hundreds of speed bumps that seem to tear the bottom of your car off.

- Alan Davies

Worry Like

The thing I'd really like to see is the old London Bridge, with all the old buildings around it like Shakespeare's Globe. I'd like to walk along that. Don't worry, I won't get drunk and fall in.

- Alan Davies

Trained Could

In 2008, Pistorius was the only guy who could run under 22 seconds at 200 m. So I said I would run as fast as that in London. I practised; I trained.

Been England

London has been used as the emblematic English city, but it's far from representative of what life in England is actually about.

- Alan Moore

Always Tap

I'm always afraid someone's going to tap me on the shoulder one day and say, 'Back to North London.'

- Alan Parker

Sometimes Anybody

You know, London is so sprawling, and you can sometimes forget that anybody else is on a stage anywhere else.

- Alan Rickman

Student Very

I was a student in London in the '70s, so CBGB really wasn't on my radar at all. Obviously, I was aware of the emergence of the Police in England and as an art student, I was very aware of David Byrne, but I suppose my musical taste at that time certainly didn't stretch towards the Dead Boys or the Ramones.

- Alan Rickman

Like Other

I haven't seen the film yet because I just got in from London. In the scenes where the two characters are bantering with each other, it is like bobbing at the net in tennis.

- Albert Finney

Very Providing

Our hearts and prayers go out to the people in London and in Egypt. We're very concerned about it. We are providing our expertise to aid in the investigation in London.

Very I Remember

When I was 14, I came to school in London. I remember it was very cold, but also having to adjust and become fluent in English.

- Alek Wek

Very Come

I don't get recognised in London or at home either - very seldom anyway. Either that or I look so crazy no one wants to come up to me.

- Alison Krauss

Week Very

I used to go to a lot of Pam Hogg shows. The thing about London Fashion Week is that, generally, we're on tour and traveling around, so it's very rare that I actually catch it. I like to go to Burberry because I know a few girls who work there. I kind of follow friends.

- Alison Mosshart

College Read

I went to University College London and read English literature, then realised if you were interested in story and narrative, film was the way to go.

- Alison Owen

Race Whenever

Whenever we race in London, the noise of the fans gives me goosebumps.

- Alistair Brownlee

Title Had

Rio was always going to be on the schedule for me, whether I had won in London or not. Triathlon is one of those sports where the Olympics is always the most important and the most interesting race, and I always wanted to have a crack at Rio and defend my title.

- Alistair Brownlee

Next I Remember

London 2012 was the toughest time in our relationship but also the best. Things could get fractious - we were both competing for gold - but standing next to my brother on the start line for a home Olympics was so special. I remember saying: 'Let's go.'

- Alistair Brownlee

Million Superb

London 2012 was superb. It was the best triathlon experience in a million years.

- Alistair Brownlee

Middle Class

Mrs. Miniver was an ordinary middle-class English housewife, a character created by Jan Struther when she was commissioned by the 'Times of London' to write a weekly 'cheer-up' article in 1937.

- Alistair Horne

Century Regarded

In the 17th century, Barbados was regarded in London as 'the brightest jewel in the English crown'.

Other Moved

When I moved to London at age 16, tired of the shuffle around other people's houses and ready to live on my own, I met my English brother and sister, who instantly claimed me as family.

- Allegra Huston

Very Impressed

Strangely enough, I wasn't into fast guitarists. I preferred Peter Green's subtle touch. I saw him with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers at the Marquee Club in London and was very impressed. He was the only guitarist I've ever seen to turn the volume control on his guitar down during a solo.

- Alvin Lee

Country Means

A horseman's head is in Athens, and his body is in London: Poseidon's torso is separated between Greece and the U.K. This means that they cannot be celebrated and appreciated as a whole in the country they came from.

- Amal Clooney

Here Very

I grew up in northwest London on a council estate. My parents are Irish immigrants who came over here when they were very young and worked in menial jobs all their lives, and I'm one of many siblings.

- Amanda Hale

Sense Incredible

I have an incredible sense of direction, but London is confusing. It's a circle, but then it stops being a circle.

- Amber Valletta

More More People

I believe we shall come to care about people less and less. The more people one knows the easier it becomes to replace them. It's one of the curses of London.

- Ambrose Bierce

Amazing See

The views from Waterloo Bridge are amazing - you can see so much of London.

- Amelia Warner

I Am Definitely

I am definitely a west London girl.

- Amelia Warner

Moment Some

I wasn't even going to do acting. I don't know how it even happened, to be honest. I was going to go into psychology or something like that. Or business. And then some moment of madness took over and I decided, 'Oh, I'm gonna go to London and try to be an actor.'

- Amrita Acharia

Work Before

I had jobs from the age of 14, when I arrived in London as a refugee. Aged 17, I'd get up at 4 A.M. to work as a cleaner before school. It wasn't pleasant.

- Alek Wek

Got Second Home

London is like my second home. I've still got friends there from school and from when I first started in the modelling business - people such as Karen Elson, Jasmine Guinness, Jade Parfitt.

- Alek Wek

Like Hotels

I like unique little boutique hotels, such as Blakes in London.

- Alek Wek

Here Evolved

Having arrived in London to seek refuge during the civil war in Sudan, where I was born, the thing I'm most proud of is having totally evolved. I came here not knowing how to speak English, but I went to school and learned; I adapted to this new culture.

- Alek Wek

Through South

Going back to South Sudan after the independence took place was deeply emotional for me because I had gone through the civil war with my family just before going to seek refuge in London.

- Alek Wek

Me Deliberately

There are members of the London press who seek to antagonise me, deliberately.

- Alex Ferguson

Think I Think

I think if you live in London, it's such a cosmopolitan city; nobody even notices different-race relationships. I assumed it would be even more liberal in the States, and it's totally the opposite.

- Alex Kingston

World Fact

London street style is the best in the world. Fact.

- Alexa Chung

Always Suburbs

The home of Rugby Union is in Twickenham - just outside London in the suburbs, where I live. I'm mad for it. The trouble with being an actor and being in the theater is that you always miss the games.

- Alexander Hanson

Love University

I liked Shakespeare in high school, but in university I spent a semester studying in London, and it was sort of in the middle of me falling deeply in love with literature, and I took a Shakespeare course with a professor who couldn't imagine anything more important than Shakespeare.

- Alexi Zentner

Education Hampshire

I moved to Seattle when I was two or three years old. Had my early education there, and would spend summers on the farm in Maryland. Then I went to boarding school in New Hampshire, to St. Paul's School. From there, I moved to London.

- Alexis Denisof

Vibe Still

The vibe of London as a city is captivating. It's both fast-paced and extremely rushed but still has the calmness that would attract any big-city person.

- Ali Fazal

Anything Careful

I have to be careful, as I don't want to offend Midlanders, but growing up, it wasn't like growing up in London. Anything you were interested in, you'd be able to find someone also interested in it. In the Midlands, nobody came out as gay at my school at all.

- Alice Lowe

Always About

I loved being in London. Always walking everywhere, always out and about and always at markets, walking around Brick Lane and Covent Garden and Soho.

- Alice Temperley

Doing Before

I had to pinch myself. I got the call and didn't expect it. And right up 'til nearly the end of filming, I was thinking, 'Am I actually doing a film with Akshay Kumar?' because I was a massive Akshay Kumar fan before, and the first film that I ever watched was his and Katrina's film, 'Namastey London.'

- Amy Jackson

Think Dublin

What great writers have done to cities is not to tell us what happens in them, but to remember what they think happened or, indeed, might have happened. And so Dickens reinvented London, Joyce, Dublin, and so on.

- Andre Aciman

Humble Onion

One my favorite things is to go to the provinces of Russia and see the 18th century wood churches with the onion dome architecture. These humble wonders of incredible imagination of architects that were obviously not living in places like Paris or London, but they've created these amazing churches.

- Andre Leon Talley

Year Been

It must have been an extraordinary time. I guess the worrying thing about musical theatre to me, is if you look at the London season this year, mine is actually the only one to have come in.

- Andrew Lloyd Webber

Always Glasgow

I always knew I would come to London. I loved Glasgow, but it seemed filled with echoes of my parents' lives, and sometimes you just want a city of your own.

- Andrew O'Hagan

Like Too

There are too many things to count that I like about London.

- Andrew Wyatt

Fair By The Time

I never felt totally, 100%, patriotically English... I'd seen a lot of the world by an early age - sort of spent a lot of time traveling around Lebanon and I'd seen Babylon, and Damascus, and all sorts of places in the Middle East by the time I was ten. Then we'd return to Ruslip in West London... Done a fair bit of traveling really.

- Andy Serkis

Thought One Day

I was always interested in acting and writing, and I honestly thought I'd make my name as a scriptwriter one day. But somehow, I ended up in London in the early '70s, and that's where I had my David Bowie adventure.

- Angela Bowie

Kid I Think

I started in London, as a kid. My mother knew I had sort of an inbred talent. She was an actress, so I inherited it from her. But I think I got a lot of it from my grandfather, who was a great politician.

- Angela Lansbury

City Buy

I like to buy a new fragrance for each film. I'll go out in the city where I'm filming and snap it up. The one I have for 'Into the Woods' is Terry de Gunzburg Flagrant Delice, which I bought in London.

- Anna Kendrick

Show Classes

I was always a show girl. My parents were wonderful. There wasn't a lot going on where we lived, but they ferried me to classes and competitions all over the place. When I was 12, I came to London as a finalist in a singing competition and I was completely wide-eyed.

- Anna Maxwell Martin

Young Young Girl

As a young girl, I was too intent on getting to London and drama school and out of east Yorkshire to think about winning Oscars. I did win a Bafta once, and was so unprepared for it I jabbered on for a minute - a minute too long.

- Anna Maxwell Martin

Always Been

Although I have lived in London, I have never really considered London my home because it was always going to be a stopping-off point for me, and it has been too.

- Annie Lennox

Here Like

I like where I live here, in London.

- Annie Lennox

Very Gravitate

I went abroad to Malaya and came back and tended naturally to gravitate towards the south, I suppose, near London where things seemed to be going on; but I'm still a Lancashire man, and what I want to write someday is a novel about Manchester. Very much a regional novel.

- Anthony Burgess

Father Cultured

Until he lost all his money, my father was a successful north London Jewish businessman. He was unusual among his immediate family in that he was enormously cultured and had an incredible library.

- Anthony Horowitz

Role Very

And I had known Peter O'Toole before in London. And I'd liked him very much. And the thought of being in a picture with him was very challenging to me. And he was playing the starring role.

- Anthony Quinn

Economics Lot

I lived in London, went to the London School of Economics, do a lot of business in London, and have a lot of fun in London.

- Anthony Scaramucci

Dining Immaculate

The Ritz in London has an old-fashioned charm, with waiters wearing tails and white gloves. The dining room is exquisite, with immaculate service and ornate details.

- Anton du Beke

New Always

I've always said that L.A. is the city of America's future. It is to the world what London was in the 19th century and New York in the 20th because of the growth of the Pacific Rim countries. We're the portal to the emerging world.

- Antonio Villaraigosa

Had Published

When my first novel was published, I went in great excitement round bookshops in central London to see if they had stocked it.

- Antony Beevor

Back Moved

I refused to learn English for two years when we moved to London, hoping to send my family back home. It was tough, but at the same time, it has given me a sense of displacement that actually really suits the life that I'm living now.

- Anya Taylor-Joy

Snack Handed

As an actress and comedienne, I'm a huge fan of he theatre and the Tricycle in Kilburn is my favourite in London. I dragged my kids to a performance of 'Twelfth Night' there, where they handed out pizza. Who knew that all it takes to get children interested in Shakespeare is a snack?

- Arabella Weir

School North

I'm the co-chair of the PTA at my kids' school, Ashmount Primary, in north Islington, London.

- Arabella Weir

City Houses

You burned the city of London in our houses and we felt the flames.

- Archibald MacLeish

Here Big

Coming to New York is like a big hug, everyone is so welcoming. There's something about here, everyone makes you feel so at home. I miss my family of course, but I don't miss London that much. I was worried, but I feel really at home. Everyone says that who comes here from London, but I didn't believe them.

- Archie Panjabi

New Like

I feel like I have one foot in New York, one foot in London and one foot in India. But it's important to me to invest time with family.

- Archie Panjabi

Love Listen

'Tum Jo Mile' came as a surprise. Vivek and Kumaar sir, who has written the song, sent me the track just to listen. I was in London at the time for my world tour. I heard the song, and I fell in love with it instantly.

- Armaan Malik

Politics Became

I grew up in Balham in south London, and my best friend's brother was Geoffrey Robinson, who of course later became paymaster general, but at that time, he was working in politics.

- Art Malik

Which Idlers

London, that great cesspool into which all the loungers and idlers of the Empire are irresistibly drained.

- Arthur Conan Doyle

Smiling More

The lowest and vilest alleys of London do not present a more dreadful record of sin than does the smiling and beautiful countryside.

- Arthur Conan Doyle

Mob Terrifying

'The Globe' is one of the most terrifying theatres in London. It's that mob element - everyone packed in and staring up at you.

- Arthur Darvill

Leaders Other

Gandhi wanted to meet with Churchill, his most bitter foe, when he visited London in 1931- but it didn't happen. Churchill wanted to go to India personally as prime minister in 1942 to negotiate a final settlement on India with Gandhi and the other nationalist leaders - but the fall of Singapore prevented it from happening.

- Arthur L. Herman

Other Discovered

You have to remember that although Gandhi and Churchill only met physically once, their paths crossed again and crossed again all over the globe, from London and South Africa and India and back to London. In fact, I discovered that during the Boer War in 1899 they literally passed yards from each other on the battlefield.

- Arthur L. Herman

Culinary Come

I don't come from any great culinary tradition - I'm from London!

- Arthur Potts Dawson

Give Will

I just want to give my best in London, I want to cross that line and see a personal best on the clock then I will see what position I am in.

- Asafa Powell

About King Lear

I did a lot of theatre when I started out. It was the Lyceum, the Citz, the Tron and the Traverse. I came to London and did the Royal Court, the National, 'King Lear' at the Manchester Royal Exchange. I did little bits of comedy, like 'Rab C Nesbitt,' but I wasn't predominantly about comedy.

- Ashley Jensen

Love Dedicated

It's not exactly under the radar, but when I'm in London, I love to visit Liberty. It's my favorite department store, and they have a room entirely dedicated to chocolate and truffles.

- Ashley Madekwe
