Karma Very

Next Some

I know some people who live this much more insulated life in Los Angeles, where their feet never touch public ground. They walk out of their bathroom, their living room, they get into their garage, their car, and the next thing you know, they're at the valet parking of the restaurant or the store or the office. They're in a bubble the whole time.

- Alec Baldwin

Hate Only

I hope that Los Altos is one of the first cities to have self-driving cars, and if that's true, well, awesome, because there's a lot of parking lots that we could get rid of and use for parks. That would be amazing!

- Anne Wojcicki

Play Always

I was a fan of baseball growing up. We played baseball; I used to play in an A&P parking lot. It wasn't always easy to find a good baseball field to play in.

- Antoine Fuqua

Very Some

My very first kiss happened when I was 6, underneath some desks during 'nap time', but my first real kiss happened when I was 15 in the parking lot at a Mexican food restaurant.

- Armie Hammer

I Remember Very

When I was 17, I went to India for six weeks and had what, at the time, was a very challenging trip. You walk down the street and you see lepers and beggars, and there were several of us, a group of Americans. I remember we were just trying to park one night somewhere and people were just sleeping in the parking lot.

- Chris Hughes

Sex Campus

I find that the three major administrative problems on a campus are sex for the students, athletics for the alumni and parking for the faculty.

- Clark Kerr

Mind Very

I'm highly distractable, and I have too many things on my mind very often. When I'm driving in the city, it drives me so crazy - the city traffic and the parking - I just take cabs everywhere.

- Dan Hill

My Life Give

I pay parking tickets. You know, you can try to give 50%, but then they charge you all those penalties! Seriously, I have gotten many, many, many tickets in my life.

- Debra Messing

Door Star

The businessman gets his name on a door. The star gets his name in lights. They both get their names on a parking space.

I Remember Weeks

I did archery when I was in high school. In our gym class we had two weeks of archery, and I remember taking the bow and arrow and firing it up and across the street into a car parking lot.

- John Barrowman

Sometimes While

No veteran or active duty service member should endure a long hospital stay alone. Yet sadly, due to the high cost of travel, all too often our military families are separated while America's heroes receive care. Sometimes families sleep in hospital parking lots, unable to afford long stays in a hotel.

- John Delaney

City Cities

Cities, too, are embracing digitization. Barcelona has installed in-ground parking sensors and launched connected public transportation as part of its Smart City strategy.

- John T. Chambers

Help Still

Parking is a nightmare for me... I still have sensors on my car that help me park.

- Jordana Brewster

Lucky Basement

Success is like a high-rise building I'm on the first floor. There are a lot of people in the basement or the parking lot but I was lucky enough to have made it to the first floor and I'm looking to make it to the penthouse.

- Justin Guarini

More Parked

Too many children are being parked in substandard day care with workers who make little more than a parking attendant.

- Bill Nelson

Deep Other

The best under-the-radar rivalry is Dodgers-Giants. I had no idea how deep that one was until I moved to California... that one goes waaaaaaaaay back, and both sides absolutely detest each other. Fights in the stands, fights in the parking lot, the whole thing. It's every bit as bitter as Yankees-Red Sox without nearly the same hype.

- Bill Simmons

Patriotism System

A real patriot is the fellow who gets a parking ticket and rejoices that the system works.

- Bill Vaughan

Maybe Executives

Now that women are jockeys, baseball umpires, atomic scientists, and business executives, maybe someday they can master parallel parking.

- Bill Vaughan

Some Been

Well, we've made some changes on this tour. We're no longer sleeping in the parking lots and swimming in the fountains. We've been staying in hotels most of the way, though I will say some hotels have declined to take us because we're just having too much fun.

- Bill Walton

Funny Give

I don't believe in angels, no. But I do have a wee parking angel. It's on my dashboard and you wind it up. The wings flap and it's supposed to give you a parking space. It's worked so far.

- Billy Connolly

Had Encountered

When Solomon said there was a time and a place for everything he had not encountered the problem of parking his automobile.

- Bob Edwards

Doing Away

People with a lot of money aren't in the business of throwing it away, and those paying footballers' wages, organising parking spaces for dead sharks, and even, dare I say it, buying iPads, are doing it because, for them, it's worth the money.

- Ian Watson

My Life More

I'm more scared of parking by a parking meter than vampires because one of them is real and adversely affects my life and results in a $35 fine, and one is nonsense.

- Ike Barinholtz

Thought Always

I've always thought that parallel parking was my main talent.

- Calvin Trillin

Dangerous Quickly

The Internet is the most dangerous parking lot imaginable. But if you were crossing a mall parking lot late at night, your entire sense of danger would be heightened. You would stand straight. You'd walk quickly. You'd know where you were going. You would look for light.

- James Comey

Actor Reason

The only reason I'm an actor is that a lady pulled out of a parking space in front of a producer's office.

- James Garner

Behind Reason

I'm from Anderson, S.C., but I grew up in the South. So I know what it is to ride to school and have Confederate flags flying from trucks in front of me and behind me, to see a parking lot full of people with Confederate flags and know what that means. I've been stopped by police for no reason.

- Chadwick Boseman

Deal About

I don't even know why, but I've just always done it - I don't walk on handicapped parking spaces. I don't like to step on the blue lines. I always step over them. I don't know what the deal is. I don't know if it's a fear of injury, or a disrespectful thing, or if I just don't want to think about something like that happening.

- Chantal Sutherland

Doing Careful

My grandma's the most careful, safe driver in the world. You put her in a rental car, and she's doing doughnuts in the K-Mart parking lot!

- Jeff Foxworthy

Kind Nothing

It's really kind of hard to be a suburb of nothing. If you don't have a downtown, you really don't have anything. It's hard to build a community around parking lots and subdivisions.

- Ed McMahon

Advice Available

The one piece of advice I would give to all girlfriends - or guy friends, too, I guess - is that if you're going to have a fight in a Baja Fresh parking lot, make sure one of you has an available pair of sunglasses because whoever is crying is going to want to wear them.

- Jessica St. Clair

Concrete Here

I was attracted to the concept of Hollywood and the lifestyle here. But I've grown to mistrust it because it has changed. I didn't bargain for digital access parking in some concrete structure. Real heaven for me was to drive somewhere and park right in front. Now the city is going vertical.

- Edward Ruscha

Love Next

I love kids that come to shows, little kids coming up to you with braces; like, some kid came up to me in a parking lot outside a show in Santa Cruz - he was about 14 or 15 - and he said, 'Y'know, I love 'The Basketball Diaries,' but I hope your next book of poetry isn't gonna be as academic as 'Living at the Movies' was.'

- Jim Carroll

Worry Die

I don't want to get back into the pressure cooker of play-by-play and worry about travel. I don't want to die in a stadium parking lot.

- Keith Jackson

Screwed Going

If I start outsourcing all my navigation to a little talking box in my car, I'm sort of screwed. I'm going to lose my car in the parking lot every single time.

Every Day

Every day I pull into that parking spot that says 'Head Football Coach,' I get out of my car and pinch myself sometimes, just to make sure it's real, sort of like, 'Is this really happening?'

Love Punching

I love punching the ceiling with my fists when I'm lost or I can't find a parking space.

- Laura Kightlinger

Months Pray For

You could probably go three or four months without the word 'God' coming from my dad's mouth; Mum would pray for a parking space.

- Laurence Fox

Abuse Range

When I pull my white Range Rover into disabled parking bays, the abuse that I get until I actually get out on my crutches is phenomenal, because people presume that you couldn't possibly be disabled and reverse a white Range Rover into that parking space.

- Lee Pearson

Education Almost

Surprisingly, the Eisenhower Memorial design contains almost none of the known Gehry-box of tricks. His giant etched chain-link curtain, first applied in 1979 to hide an ungracious parking garage at Santa Monica Place, is resurrected for Eisenhower to screen the equally graceless facade of the Department of Education.

- Leon Krier

Restore Means

Restore human legs as a means of travel. Pedestrians rely on food for fuel and need no special parking facilities.

- Lewis Mumford

Studio Year

In another time, another world, each studio made 200 movies a year and had 20 executives. Today, a studio makes less than 20 movies a year and has 500 executives. They own too many parking decks and too many billboard companies. They're awash in overhead, and it's pinning them down, and they know it.

- Mike Binder

College Sound

When I wrote 'The World Is Flat,' I said the world is flat. Yeah, we're all connected. Facebook didn't exist; Twitter was a sound; the cloud was in the sky; 4G was a parking place; LinkedIn was a prison; applications were what you sent to college; and Skype, for most people, was a typo.

- Thomas Friedman

Olympic Gold

No one likes a show-off, but if parallel parking was an Olympic sport, I would get gold, no probs.

- Miranda Hart

Give Some

I was actually born in L.A. My sisters and I were playing in a parking lot, and my dad was like, 'Nah, nah, nah. Let's go give 'em some grass.'

- Rachel Keller

Somebody Note

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said 'Parking Fine.' So that was nice.

- Tim Vine

My Life Perfect

I will say that growing up as a kid in an urban environment and having lived in cities all my life, the one achievement that everyone can look forward to is getting the perfect parking spot.

- Saul Perlmutter

Campus About

Probably the single most important thing about the Nobel Prize for most people is whether they get the coveted parking space on campus.

- Saul Perlmutter

Tears Project

I listened to it last night for the first time since we started this project. I went out to my car and put it in and went to an empty parking lot and just listened and read the little pamphlet that came with it. After two or three songs I burst into tears.

- Randy Bachman

Brothers

We can have open and good discussion with our Republican brothers and sisters. But when we walk into the chapel we should leave our political differences out in the parking lot.

- Scott Howell

Love Means

Be generous with your time and money - it has an amazingly fast payback. Be in the moment with everyone you love - and this frequently means tuning out work completely. And drive slow in parking lots.

- Scott Weiss

Feet Nine

I'm happy to report you still get nothing you don't need at Motel 6, and, therefore, you don't have to pay for it. I don't need valet parking. If I can drive the old crate 300 miles to the hotel all by myself, I can certainly handle the last nine feet to the parking space.

- Tom Bodett

Side Against

I do take pride in saying that in spite of being in public life for so long, there is not a single case against me, not even for wrongly parking a scooter or driving on the wrong side.

- Narendra Modi

Love Larger

'Life, Love & Hope' is... I'm thinking 'larger picture.' I'm not trying to preach to anyone. We all get lost and caught up in our everyday problems. Your cellphone doesn't work or you got a parking ticket, you had a bad day at work. You can lose sight of the really important things in life; that's what the song is about.

- Tom Scholz

Somebody Note

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said 'Parking Fine.'

- Tommy Cooper

Concert Through

In June 1972, I went with friends to see the Rolling Stones at the Los Angeles Forum. After the concert, as we crossed through the parking lot, a guy in a brown Mercedes stopped in the middle of the street and got out. He came up to me and asked if I had ever modeled.

- Rene Russo

Need Like

The day you feel like you've won, you need to drive out of the parking lot and not come back.

- Mark V. Hurd

Like Sopranos

Our amour fou with 'The Sopranos' is headed for long-term parking, like so many of its most memorable characters. We'll never see a show like this again.

- Rob Sheffield

Weekend Patterns

Cameras can look down from on high and predict crop yields, traffic in Walmart parking lots, and travel patterns on Labor Day weekend. On the ground, they form the foundation of autonomous-driving systems.

- Om Malik

Medical Still

Procedures outside the stadiums and in the parking areas still need to be optimized, for example so that emergency medical services can leave the grounds on their way to the hospital faster.

- Otto Schily

Against

I'm against government-subsidized parking and government-mandated parking.

- Matthew Yglesias

Believe Goods

I'm a liberal - I believe in subsidies for public goods and in regulations to curb harmful externalities, but neither of those things exist when it comes to parking.

- Matthew Yglesias

Innocent Gardens

Eric Schmidt looks innocent enough, with his watercolor blue eyes and his tiny office full of toys and his Google campus stocked with volleyball courts and unlocked bikes and wheat-grass shots and cereal dispensers and Haribo Gummi Bears and heated toilet seats and herb gardens and parking lots with cords hanging to plug in electric cars.

- Maureen Dowd

Waiting Maybe

If somebody takes the parking place you were waiting for, I tend to kind of let it roll off my back. Maybe I'm harboring a lot of something and it will all explode somewhere down the road, but I tend to just let it slide off my back.

- Steve Carell

Alumni Major

The three major administrative problems on a campus are sex for the students, athletics for the alumni, and parking for the faculty.

- Robert M. Hutchins

Other Delivery

I worked as a parking lot attendant for a while and a delivery boy and two or three other things, but none of them seemed just right.

- Robert Preston

I Remember Very

I remember going to a funeral at a very fundamentalist church, and I just had to get out of there. I went out in the parking lot and just sobbed. I think there was a sense of loss of that little boy not knowing if he was right or wrong. Everything I grew up with I had to walk away from.

- Wes Craven

Very Cheaper

The greatest luxury is not driving. I didn't own a car until I was 30, and that was a Rolls-Royce, so it was cheaper to insure a chauffeur. I never want to drive again. My mind is always on other things. I hate parking, and I'm very short-tempered and would get road rage, I'm sure.

- Michael Caine

Some Poorly

As I travelled around Australia, strangers in pubs, on airplanes, in beach parking lots would bring up Gina Rinehart, not knowing I was writing about her. Everybody had something to say, some of it thoughtful, some of it poorly informed, some of it vividly obscene.

- William Finnegan

Handsome Heat

Young, handsome men never flirt with me. I get heat from old dudes that run the parking garages.

- Paula Pell

Young Lives

At first blush, it seems that the young people who were shot down in the parking lot at the base of Blanket Hill gave up their lives for a dream that died with them.

- William Kunstler

Accessible Made

Discount air fares, a car in every parking space and the interstate highway system have made every place accessible - and every place alike.

- Ronald Steel

Side Some

If you have a little extra parking, I err on the side of getting rid of it in favor of having some more greenery.

- Michael King
