Virginia Woolf
When I thought about Detroit, I would think big city, very urban – not a lot of places to walk around, not a lot of parks.

Erin Cummings
And I remember going to the record studio and there was a park across the street and I’d see all the children playing and I would cry because it would make me sad that I would have to work instead.

People have said, ‘Why don’t you make your own company like Chan-wook Park has his own company,’ but my head is full of writing and directing and I don’t feel like I want to run a company. That’s not really within my personality as well.
Bong Joon-ho
It’s been a fascinating thing because we didn’t really know how to write when we started South Park at all. It’s been like, we’ve just sort of grown up a bit and it’s amazing to just see how, if you take Butters and Cartman and put them in any scene, it works.
Trey Parker

Alex Gibney

Marion Davies
I stared at the river far below. “Why did you park us on the mountain? Why not closer?” Bast shrugged, as if this hadn’t occurred to her. “Cats like to get as high up as possible. In case we have to pounce on something.” “Great,” I said. “So if we have to pounce, we’re all set.
Rick Riordan

DeAndre Jordan
My desire to curtail undue freedom of speech extends only to such public areas as restaurants, airports, streets, hotel lobbies, parks, and department stores. Verbal exchanges between consenting adults in private are as of little interest to me as they probably are to them.
Fran Lebowitz
In an interesting inversion of status, the reigning breed in the dog park these days is the really-oddball-unidentifiable-mixed-breed-mutt-found-wandering-the-street or its equivalent. The stranger the mutt the better; the more peculiar the circumstance of it coming into your life, the better.
Susan Orlean
Life just turns deliciously quirky when you stop resisting yourself and, instead, honor the intuition that tugs at you like a puppy on a leash in the park. Follow the magic and magic starts to follow you.

W. P. Kinsella
I played to win. When I was a child, my brothers and I played cowboys and Indians in the park, and I was always an Indian who got captured. That was a learning experience; they were showing me that as a woman I was going to be captured. But in a metaphorical sense, I think I did eventually become a cowboy.
Ita Buttrose
Many parks in Florida have information kiosks with colorful enamel signs showing the special flora and fauna in the park. The gopher tortoise, the scrub jay, the indigo snake. At no park with an indigo snake on its kiosk signs could I find an indigo.
Padgett Powell
We start to realize that there are anodynes in life that help us through the day. I don’t care if it’s a walk in the park, a look out the window, a good bubble bath – whatever. Even a meal you like, or a friend you want to call. That helps us solve all this stuff in our head.
Al Pacino
I’m helplessly and permanently a Red Sox fan. It was like first love…You never forget. It’s special. It’s the first time I saw a ballpark. I’d thought nothing would ever replace cricket. Wow! Fenway Park at 7 o’clock in the evening. Oh, just, magic beyond magic: never got over that
Simon Schama
I can’t even take a stroll through a park. As soon as women see my face they start gathering up their children and running for home.
Timothy Carey
I know about having days off. They can be helpful sometimes, especially late in the year. It’s just key to go out there and establish early, especially in this park where they can put up some crooked numbers early.
Dontrelle Willis
I think we must ask ourselves if this is really what we want to do to God’s creation, to drive it to extinction? Because extinction really is irreversible; species that go extinct are lost forever. This is not like Jurassic Park. We can’t bring them back.
Stuart L. Pimm
I’ve always liked the downtrodden character on different shows. Before ‘Parks,’ I loved the Toby character on ‘The Office.’ I do like playing that type of thing.

Central Park is the grandiose symbol of the front yard each child in New York hasn’t got.
Robert Benchley
Coogee is a delightful, slightly old-fashioned suburb; it has parks and gardens and reserves, a good well-kept beach, and an excellent promenade above the beach. It is a suburb for people who appreciate those aspects of life.
Richie Benaud
The 1980s will seem like a walk in the park when compared to new global challenges, where annual productivity increases of 6% may not be enough. A combination of software, brains, and running harder will be needed to bring that percentage up to 8% or 9%.
Jack Welch
Teachers can go on cruises with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration and anyone can spend the summer as a volunteer in a National Parks and even earn money doing it.

Julia Roberts
Doing Shakespeare in the Park has always been a dream. Everyone else says Hamlet, but I want to play Romeo.
Aaron Yoo
I couldn’t do my show without spending 12 years on the streets of Humboldt Park. It made me a better interrogator. Still, if they had taken me out of my squad car and gave me a show, I would’ve been terrible. But on ‘Springer,’ the spotlight was on Jerry and I got to grow up within the show.
Steve Wilkos
That distant day had a significance I could not give it then. So we wheeled and came back south towards the city. The Temple of Heaven slipped by underneath, that perfect pattern in its ample park. Then the wide plain ruled to the far horizon. Soon the aerodrome.
Cecil Arthur Lewis
I walk around a lot secretly. Even when I use a car, I park it briefly and walk. It seems that I still need some time alone to think and sort out things myself.
The most important thing is to try and enjoy life because you never know when it will be gone. If you wake up in the morning and have a choice between doing the laundry and taking a walk in the park, go for the walk. You’d hate to die and realize you had spent your last day doing the laundry.
Joyce Tenneson
You know, theres endorphins in laughter, as there are endorphins in running in the park.

National parks are the best expression of social equity that there is. It’s like paying our rent for living on the planet.
Douglas Tompkins
The first time I faced him I watched him take that easy windup and then something went past me that made me flinch. The thing just hissed with danger. We couldn’t touch him… Every one of us knew we’d met the most powerful arm ever turned loose in a ball park.
Ty Cobb
I recycle and try to be nice to the earth. But flora and fauna have always interested me, and it is because of so many years of summer camp and growing up in DC with Rock Creek Park fairly near me, or Glover Park; I lived in Glover Park for a while and that park was in my backyard.
Henry Rollins
Shamu the killer whale is Sea World’s Mickey Mouse; whales named Shamu are the star attractions of three parks and the focus of their marketing efforts.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Romans park their cars the way I would park if I had just spilled a beaker of hydrochloric acid on my lap.
Bill Bryson
Ordinary folk prefer familiar tastes – they’d sooner eat the same things all the time – but a gourmet would sample a fried park bench just to know how it tastes.
Walter Moers
There will be scenes in a movie where people are walking through the park, or through a forest, and you’re seeing the flickering leaves around them, and they’re walking, but you’re also hearing their words. It’s an interaction between where they are and what they’re saying that’s both visual and verbal.
Lynne Rae Perkins
I love theme parks but I’m a real chicken on rides. I’d rather invent scary rides for my books than go on them for real.
R. L. Stine
Disney’s something to be a little alarmed about. It’s not just a little theme park anymore. It’s now an ethic and outlook and strategy that goes way beyond central Florida.
Carl Hiaasen
Young people think Rosa Parks just sat down on a bus and ended segregation, but that wasn’t the case at all.
Claudette Colvin

Welcome…to Jurassic Park!
Michael Crichton
If the parks be “the lungs of London” we wonder what Greenwich Fair is–a periodical breaking out, we suppose–a sort of spring rash.
Charles Dickens
Who knew Rob Lowe was funny? On ‘Parks and Rec,’ we’ve got some of the funniest comedy writers, some of the funniest comedians in the world working there. And if anything, we don’t just effuse to one another and be like, ‘Oh, Rob Lowe’s really funny,’ if he wasn’t.
Chris Pratt
The World’s Fair was the precursor to theme parks like Disneyworld, and the really sort of cheap, superficial promotional architecture that you see everywhere in the US. I think there’s a danger when you start creating a civilisation that isn’t meant to last.
Sufjan Stevens
I write in coffee shops, libraries, parks, museums. I get antsy and then get on my bike and go someplace else, letting the ideas spin around in my head as I dodge taxis.
Phil Klay
We were into the Speedway. We’d take a train out to the Speedway where farmers had flatbed trucks with bleachers on them. They’d park in the infield and we’d sit on those. Our heroes weren’t the drivers, they were the pit crews. That’s because we were local, and we knew what was going on.
Kurt Vonnegut
The real meaning of courage was the personal sacrifice of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King.

Dana Gould
Park was never going to love her more than he did on the day they said goodbye. And she couldn’t bear to think of him loving her less.

Horsemanship through the history of all nations has been considered one of the highest accomplishments. You can’t pass a park without seeing a statue of some old codger on a horse. It must be to his bravery, you can tell it’s not to his horsemanship.
Will Rogers
A location can really enhance exercise enjoyment. Getting out in nature – whether it’s a beach, lake, river, forest, hills or even an urban park – can do wonders for our mood and stress levels.

Clement Attlee
The interminable forests should become graceful parks, for use and delight.

Theresa May
Yosemite Park is a place of rest, a refuge from the roar and dust and weary, nervous, wasting work of the lowlands, in which one gains the advantages of both solitude and society.
John Muir
Hearing that the same men who brought us ‘South Park’ were mounting a musical to be called ‘The Book of Mormon,’ we were tempted to turn away, as from an inevitable massacre.
James Fenton
We’ve actually named asteroids for other famous women in history, like Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, and Sojourner Truth. But it’s really this Malala one that’s catching people’s attention.
Carrie Nugent
Right now, when it comes to making an album, we really want to give our fans just Linkin Park. We don’t want to water it down with anything else or confuse it with anything else. Meteora is just us and that’s where our focus has been. So hopefully the fans can enjoy that.
Mike Shinoda
I went to jail 44 times. I’ve been beaten and left for dead on the side of the road fighting for freedom. . . . Yet Rosa Parks is better known in history than Ralph David Abernathy. Why is that?
Ralph Abernathy
One hundred years ago, visionary political leaders from the Progressive Era established a system of national forests and parks in our country that are the envy of the world and today are the treasure of an entire nation. Why not a similar, global vision for our generation?
Eban Goodstein
If I don’t drive around the park, I’m pretty sure to make my mark. If I’m in bed each night by ten, I may get back my looks again. If I abstain from fun and such, I’ll probably amount to much; But I shall stay the way I am, Because I do not give a damn.
Dorothy Parker
Make a right down 7th Ave to 4th St Park, feeling the whole ghetto vibe and set my mark

Logan Lerman
If a movie makes it really big, they do the obvious thing, right? They make an amusement park ride out of it. … The connection is obvious. You get off, “Man, that was just like the movie! Only the movie had a storyline and characters, and that was a little more like a roller coaster.”
Brian Regan
All the signs of incipient activism and uprising, from Tahrir square to Zuccotti Park to [the recent] shutdown of the Internet to protest web censorship. People are getting smart and getting connected.
Bill McKibben
Aside from its parks and nature areas, Singapore is intensively developed, and due to the shortage of land, is building up, down and on manmade islands and landfills.
Alan Huffman
I spend my time sitting in train stations, parks, parking lots, cafes, just looking at people – eavesdropping, basically. I’m vulnerable to all of it.
Saul Williams
But, say you, surely there is nothing easier than for me to imagine trees, for instance, in a park [. . .] and nobody by to perceive them. […] The objects of sense exist only when they are perceived; the trees therefore are in the garden [. . .] no longer than while there is somebody by to perceive them.
George Berkeley
Folk music isn’t owned by anybody. It is owned by everybody, like the national parks, the postal system, and the school system. It’s our common property. There is nobody’s name on it. Nobody can make money on it. It’s not copywritten.
Utah Phillips
An intellectual is a man who doesn’t know how to park a bike.
Spiro T. Agnew

Joan Rivers
Rosa Parks inspired many. She will not be forgotten.
John Shimkus
We spend more time at cinemas, theaters, art galleries and theme parks than we do at churches, and they have become our new cathedrals. We can spend hours at any of these places of entertainment but if church service goes on too long we get impatient.
Michael Huffington
I love New York, it’s always been my home. It has everything – music, fashion, entertainment, impressive buildings, huge parks, street cafes. And it’s very international, with people from all over the world.
Sean Combs
I like to play chess with bald men in the park although it’s hard to find 32 of them.
Emo Philips
Nothing was dirty. With Park. Nothing could be shameful. Because Park was the sun, and that was the only way Eleanor could think to explain it.
Rainbow Rowell
I just went along for the ride. It was a God-given gift. It is. So you can’t say well, you wasted your life because you spent all of it acting, but I think gosh, I’ve never been to China, I’ve never been to Japan. I’ve never been to Yellowstone Park.
Angela Lansbury
Do you know the nicest thing about looking at pictures of a 1950’s baseball park? The only people wearing baseball caps are the players.
George Carlin
You probably know the name of Rosa Parks. You probably know that her refusal to move to the colored section in the back of a city bus sparked the Montgomery bus boycotts, one of the pivotal moments in the American civil rights movement.
Michel Martin
A piazza is not a plaza. The plaza is the theme park of the piazza; the plaza is the commercial version. A piazza is an empty space with no function. This is what Europeans understand.

Eula Biss

Meb Keflezighi
It’s like this. Father Time keeps pitching the years at us. We swing and miss at a few. We hit a few out of the park. We try not to take any called strikes.

In the building I live in on Park Avenue there are ten people who could buy the Yankees, but none of them could hit the ball out of Yankee Stadium.
Reggie Jackson
One of my top 10 favorite movies of all time was South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. Team America is a work of genius to me.

Objects in a park suggest static repose rather than any ongoing dialectic. Parks are finished landscapes for finished art .
Robert Smithson
your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.
Anthony Bourdain
When I got my job on Parks, it was so dreamy, kind of unfathomable. I didn’t think a job that excellent could exist for me.
Nick Offerman
When I get into the moment of actually feeling like I want to write, to finish something, I do what I’ve always read authors do, and park myself at a desk and bang things out for three hours. And if I have to throw it all away, I throw it all away.
Ted Leo
My mother was a barmaid and I was raised in a trailer park. I’m used to that language. I put it on the screen so that people could interpret it as they wish.
Penelope Spheeris
Life’s a roller coaster. Best damn ride in the park. You don’t close your eyes, hold on and wait for it to be over, babe. You keep your eyes open, lift your hands straight up in the air and enjoy the ride for as long as it lasts.
Kristen Ashley
The Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute accepts people of any race. We don’t discriminate against anyone. We teach people to reach their highest potential. I set examples by the way I lead my life.
Rosa Parks
Labor should not be about creating monuments on hills or statues in parks. Labor’s monuments and statues are when a young person can find a job, when a person with disability can get access to the ordinary life that others take for granted.
Bill Shorten
In the “Intervention” section of the book we go into that looping from a battery of positions (where healer and sufferer are blurred). I’m very interested in “repetition and revision” (to use Suzan Lori-Parks’s phrase) and in the culture’s desire to loop or repeat.
Laura Mullen
Just walking in the kitchen (and we have three kitchens at Le Bernardin), I exercise quite a lot. I also walk in Central Park for 50 minutes from my house to Le Bernardin every day, rain, shine, snow.
Eric Ripert
I got a job as a dishwasher in Oakland, and I would draw all day. It was nice because the lady who ran the boardinghouse where I worked let me live there for nothing if I gave her some drawings every week – mostly park drawings of birds and such.
Claes Oldenburg
My favourite British spots are any of the beautiful parks, especially on a sunny day such as this, after a long stretch of cold, cloudy and rainy days.
Richard Schiff

My two best friends, they love amusement parks. They are such roller-coaster daredevils, and they drag me on every single roller coaster they can find. Some of my favorite experiences have been when they’ve taken me to Disneyland or Six Flags or Universal.
Katherine McNamara
In light of the documented benefits of urban trees, we must also ensure that we increase green spaces in underserved communities throughout the city that lack adequate parks and other green spaces.
Letitia James
Why do we ‘drive’ on a ‘parkway’ but ‘park’ at a ‘strip club’?
Megan Amram
I take a lot of pride in the work I do, because people pay to see me. They’ve go to get babysitters, park their car, get popcorn and candy. I’ve got to be conscious of that.
Mr. T
I’ve searched all the parks in all the cities – and found no statues of Committees.

Dorothy Hamill
The vision of an ag park set forth in the BioCrossroads report includes livestock, … In addition, the vision of an ag park set forth in the BioCrossroads report is aimed at counties that are more rural than Delaware County. We believe Shideler is too densely populated for an ag park.
Thurman Munson
I’m a really bad driver. When I’m in L.A. my husband always has to park the car for me, because I’m likely to hit something.
Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
It isn’t safe to go to the parks. Toxic chemicals ruin the air and water. There is vandalism, even crime, and conscientious park personnel are demoralized.
Michael Frome
Also, I walk and hike in several different nearby parks near our home several early mornings a week.
Reverend Malcolm Boyd
Remember all the movies, Terry, we’d go see? Trying to learn how to walk like the heroes we thought we had to be And after all this time to find we’re just like all the rest Stranded in the park and forced to confess To hiding on the Backstreets.
Bruce Springsteen
But some characters in books are really real–Jane Austen’s are; and I know those five Bennets at the opening of Pride and Prejudice, simply waiting to raven the young men at Netherfield Park, are not giving one thought to the real facts of marriage.
Dodie Smith
I’ve never had the Lord say, ‘Jesse, I think that car is a little bit too nice.’ I’ve had vehicles and the Lord said, ‘Would you please go park that at your house. Don’t put that in front of my house. I don’t want people to think that I’m a poor God.’
Jesse Duplantis

Megan Phelps-Roper
I haven’t missed a game in two-and-a-half years. I go to the park as sick as a dog and, when I see my uniform hanging there, I get well right now. Then I see some of you guys (media) and I get sick again.
Pete Rose
Maybe it’s the remnants of my religious upbringing, but I do try and insert a sense of social justice into the work. For instance, to me, Mansfield Park is a story about servitude and slavery. Other people may have a problem with that, but that’s how I read the book and so that’s how I shot the movie.
Patricia Rozema
I wanted to be on American TV so much. I didn’t park DJ’ing; I just sort of ended up becoming more of a studio guy. I had a bit more money and I could buy every little piece of equipment and drum machine that had just come out – I’ve got quite a collection now – and I continued to collect music.
Idris Elba
There is so much oil now in the Gulf of Mexico, and you can thank the folks of British Petroleum for this, so much oil in the Gulf, you can now park on it.

Put the park rangers to work. Lazy scheming loafers, they’ve wasted too many years selling tickets at toll booths and sitting behind desks filling out charts and tables

For me happiness occurs arbitrarily: a moment of eye contact on a bus, where all at once you fall in love; or a frozen second in a park where it’s enough that there are trees in the world.
Russell Brand
When I have time, I write other things. I’m working on a book, I paint, I sculpt, I play with my dog, I watch television – I catch up on South Park or movies or whatever I’ve missed, normal stuff.
Taylor Momsen
I just think Rosa Parks was overrated. Last time I checked, she got famous for breaking the law.
Stephen Colbert
I’m horrible at these things, ’cause I’m a horrible date.What’s a good date? A nice dinner and a movie? I don’t know. What are dates? An amusement park? What am I supposed to say? Hmm. I have no idea.
Drake Bell
I lived at home for 2 1/2 months each time. I waited tables at Govnr’s Park Tavern in Denver and then I moved on.
Dana Perino
I was very active in the Parks and Recreation department. I recall a lot of the things we had to do, from the trips for the department to organizing a Little League, those sorts of things.
Mike Scully
If we didn’t have a sustainable agriculture industry, who would be paying the then-missing taxes to support our defence, police, roads, airports, elderly, parks, public sporting facilities and much more?
Gina Rinehart
The advantages? Exercise, no parking problems, gas prices, it’s fun. An automobile is expensive. You have to find a place to park and it’s not fun. So why not ride a bicycle? I recommend it.
Stephen Breyer
I watch a variety of shows. I love ‘Veep,’ ‘Parks and Recreation,’ ‘Girls,’ ‘Mad Men,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ and fun shows like ‘Empire.’
Lindsey Morgan
In 1924 Mao took a Chinese friend, newly arrived from Europe, to see the notorious sign in the Shanghai park, ‘Chinese and Dogs Not Allowed’.
Paul Johnson
The civil rights movement would experience many important victories, but Rosa Parks will always be remembered as its catalyst.
Jim Costa
The ideas of [ Le Corbusier ] that actually found their way into practice were deeply destructive – for instance, the tower-in-a-park, which mutated into the vertical slums of the late 20th century.
James Howard Kunstler
I was walking in the park and this guy waved at me. Then he said, ‘I’m sorry, I thought you were someone else.’ I said, ‘I am.’
Demetri Martin
One I built when I was a kid, and it was a real miniature of Disneyland. I fell in love with the park when I went there with my parents on my 12th birthday.
Bobby Sherman
I love sporting events and popcorn and pizza and being outside, like at a baseball or football game. I love amusement parks, going to ride roller coasters.
Carrie Underwood
Don’t feel guilty about driving somewhere nice to run. If people can drive to a park to eat hot dogs, you can drive there to run.
Bill Rodgers
I always look forward to going for a walk in Rushcutters Bay Park, right down to the bottom where you can look in the clear water of the harbour. I use that time to clear my head and really focus my thoughts.
Catherine Martin
,000 people in Hampden Park. Of course they’re all Scottish. Because no one else goes there. The English have an unwritten rule: they only go to places they might get back from.
Billy Connolly
Bears don’t live on Park Avenue.
Bernard Baruch
I have been given permission to announce that I and others from All My Children have been approached by the company Prospect Park, who bought AMC, with the intention to move it online.
Cameron Mathison
I agree with the idea of cutting [budget], but it should all be coming out of entitlements for the affluent and not out of domestic discretionary, which is welfare, education, all the stuff the government does, parks, FBI, and it shouldn’t be coming out of Medicaid.
David Brooks
South Park started as a little video Christmas card.
Joel Hodgson
Native Americans are not and must not be props in a sort of theme park of the past, where we go to have a good time and see exotic cultures. “What we have done to the peoples who were living in North America” is, according to anthropologist Sol Tax, “our Original Sin.
James W. Loewen
It was November–the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. Anne roamed through the pineland alleys in the park and, as she said, let that great sweeping wind blow the fogs out of her soul.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
Well, I had always been a fan of ‘The Office’ and thought the mockumentary style of the show was hilarious. So with ‘Parks’ taking the same approach, it drew me in right away.
Roy Hibbert
For a while I didn’t have a car . . . I had a helicopter . . . no place to park it, so I just tied it to a lamp post and left it running. [slow glance upward]
Steven Wright
I feel like they would just be the funnest people. I wish I could have been friends with Michael Jackson, just because he had the most badass house of all time and I could just go out and go on amusement park rides and then he could teach me how to moonwalk.
In the park I met other women and I started to get interested in their lives. I developed a lot of pressure to talk about women’s lives, and children’s lives, too. Children interest me tremendously.
Grace Paley
I don’t want to go with the smooth skin and the calm brow. I hope I end up a blithering idiot cursing the sun – hallucinating, screaming, giving obscene and inane lectures on street corners and public parks.
Henry Rollins
I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. [It allows you to] be the Mungo Park, the Lewis and Clark of your own streams and oceans; [to] explore your own higher latitudes; [to] be a Columbus to whole new continents and worlds within you, opening new channels, not of trade, but of thought.
Henry David Thoreau
Nobody in the city of Los Angeles knows how to catch an alligator, … We have no experience in recreation and parks, the zoo or animal control.
Janice Hahn
I’ve turned into one of those people who go jogging in parks that I used to hate.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
Clary grinned. “A picnic? It’s a little late for Central Park, don’t you think? It’s full of – ” He waved a hand. “Faeries. I know.” “I was going to say muggers,” said Clary. “Though I pity the mugger who goes after you.” “That is a wise attitude, and I commend you for it,” said Jace, looking gratified.
Cassandra Clare
I was literally sued – drug through court for two years by the NRA and the gun lobby – all because, in my city, we refused to repeal an ordinance which said you couldn’t shoot guns in city parks.
Andrew Gillum
What I don’t understand about mobile homes is that you have a mobile place to live, you park it, and you never move it again. That’s like buying a Sony Walkman, and nailing it to your hi-fi.
Nick Hancock
I just love Bayonne. I love the parks. I love the pizzerias. I love the simple things in life, and it’s all here.
Tammy Blanchard
We’ve had musical stuff in the show [South Park] forever. That’s mostly because Trey’s a big musical fan, and he’s a great songwriter. He’s been writing songs his whole life. So since the beginning, we’ve always put a lot of musical moments.
Matt Stone
Cardiff Stadium was a warm up for the 3 Hyde Park shows. James Brown opened. And I think it may be the only time we played Mini Epic live.
Chad Smith
When you think about Boston, Harvard and M.I.T. are the brains of the city, and its soul might be Faneuil Hall or the State House or the Old Church. But I think the pulsing, pounding heart of Boston is Fenway Park.
John Towner Williams
Go outside! I mean, even leaves from a park are beautiful in a clear glass vase. I’d rather see that than fake anything any day.
Nate Berkus
So I’m running in the park on Saturday, in shorts, thinking this is great, but are we all gonna die? You know? I can’t, I can’t figure this out..There were record breaking temperatures across the, 72 in New York City, 69 in Boston on Saturday. A lot of people wondering is it global warming or something much simpler?
Meredith Vieira
The British are so funny. It’s like they can’t believe I lived in Hackney. ‘You could live in Bondi Beach. Why would you want to live in ‘Ackney?’ But Hackney’s fantastic. I’m serious. There are so many artists there. I loved the markets, the parks, the pubs, the diversity. It was a cultural melting-pot.
Rose Byrne
Aesthetically, London is just beautiful; it’s a gorgeous city. The architecture, monuments, the parks, the small streets – it’s an incredible place to be.
Sara Bareilles
Baseball is a pretty sight and a nice experience, win or lose, particularly if it is watched in a nice park.
Daniel Okrent
I run from Horatio Street down just past Battery Park City and back. It’s amazing to run and see the Statue of Liberty and the ferries coming in. People think if you’re not near Central Park, there’s nowhere to go, but there’s a whole ecosystem happening down here.
Andy Cohen
Computer language design is just like a stroll in the park. Jurassic Park, that is.
Larry Wall
My mother was a teacher, and when she wanted to show me art and literature and science, she’d take me to museums, parks and free exhibitions.
David Blaine
Congress has an obligation to protect our country’s natural beauty, embodied in our nation’s parks, rivers, and breathtaking landscapes.
Dave Reichert
You have independent films and independent music, but you don’t have independent theme parks – I think, in a way, Burning Man is as close, probably, as you get.
Peter Gabriel
Skateboarding, like graffiti, will never be tamed. No matter how much they monetize it, no matter how big it gets, no matter how many companies are putting millions and millions of dollars into marketing it, it’s always going to be some Mexican kid on a corner in Echo Park that changes the rules of the game.
Jeffrey Deitch
Rosa Parks is rock and roll.
It always seems to me odd to call a place a wilderness when every wilderness area in the US bristles with rules and regulations as to how you can behave, what you’re allowed to do, and is patrolled by armed rangers enforcing the small print. They’re parks, of course, not wildernesses at all.
Jonathan Raban
National parks, zoos, protected areas, polluted seas – using the whole world as a readymade, I thought about it as a stage set. To activate a stage set you need a drama, an actor to offset it.
Aleksandra Mir
In the hierarchy of public lands, national parks by law have been above the rest: America’s most special places, where natural beauty and all its attendant pleasures – quiet waters, the scents of fir and balsam, the hoot of an owl, and the dark of a night sky unsullied by city lights – are sacrosanct.
Michael Shnayerson
Antarctica is one of the most remote and beautiful places on earth. I don’t think that everyone should go there. I also think that we need to respect it as a kind of a national park for the planet. It should be you know put in parentheses.
DJ Spooky
In an amusement park, you can go on a roller coaster that carries you up and down, or you can go on another kind of ride that whirls you around in a circle. Similarly, there are different sorts of entertaining experiences in the theater.
Wallace Shawn
I was raised in Arizona, and I went to public school, and the extent of my knowledge of the civil-rights movement was the story of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. I wonder how much my generation knows.
Emma Stone
I was haunted by a bear attack that happened in Algonquin Park in 1991. The problem was that I dont believe in ghosts, so that ruled out an exorcism. My other choice was to start writing.
Claire Cameron
I learned to park outside of Denny’s because it’s 24 hours. I made a deal at a 7-Eleven with a mailman so I could get my mail delivered there.
Tony Robbins
Each neighborhood of the city appeared to be made of a different substance, each seemed to have a different air pressure, a different psychic weight: the bright lights and shuttered shops, the housing projects and luxury hotels, the fire escapes and city parks.
Teju Cole
When your heart speaks to you about what you need to do to sustain life on this planet, listen to it, make a difference, and be an inspiration for generations to come. Be inspired by people like Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Christopher Reeve, Albert Schweitzer, Helen Keller, and many others.
Bernie Siegel
I have no issue with Rosa Parks. But I do have an issue with liberals trying to canonize her in order to glorify themselves and legitimize their route to ‘progress’ through political and racial agitation instead of hard work and character.
Jesse Lee Peterson
While other state governments stiff their vendors, close parks, delay tax refunds, and ignore unacceptably poor service levels, Indiana state employees are setting national standards for efficiency.
Mitch McConnell
I like the Alice in Wonderland sculpture in Central Park. I love how it’s been rained on forever and looks worn down by time.
Conor Oberst
When you go to other parks, they hang banners for the wild-card or Eastern Division or Western Division champions. Around here, they don’t hang anything unless its for being world champions.
Chili Davis
Landscaping is the great cardinal sin of modern architecture. It’s not your garden, it’s not a park – it’s a formless patch of grass, shrubbery and the occasional tree that exists purely to stop the original developer’s plans from looking like a howling concrete wilderness.
Ben Aaronovitch
It’s a very tough time for the playwright. Broadway has become almost a musical comedy theme park with all these long-running shows.
John Lithgow
I do what I do because of Walt Disney – his films and his theme park and his characters and his joy in entertaining.
John Lasseter
The National Park Service shot a mule in the face. He survived but had trouble swallowing and often food came out of his nose.
Cleveland Amory
President Bush threw out the first pitch Monday at Cincinnati’s great American ball park. 18 Iraqis were killed.
Amy Poehler
My father’s a fanatic for national parks, and every childhood trip was pretty much to national parks.
Josh Holloway
Do I wear a helmet? Ugh. I do when I’m riding through a precarious part of town, meaning Midtown traffic. But when I’m riding on secure protected lanes or on the paths that run along the Hudson or through Central Park – no, I don’t wear the dreaded helmet then.
David Byrne
I am gagged and imprisoned. I can’t even speak. I want to kick a football in a park with my son. Ordinary, banal life: my impossible dream.
Salman Rushdie
I’d had nearly four years of experience looking at these clocks, but their sluggishness never ceased to surprise. If I am ever told that I have one day to live, I will head straight to the hallowed halls of Winter Park High School, where a day has been known to last a thousand years.
John Green
I went through puberty in a theme park. I’m grateful. That place was a landscape to me. I had adventures every day.
Ryan Gosling
If I could film, we’d film every episode of ‘Doctor Who’ in New York. I have an affinity with the city. It has some wonderful locations and it is devastatingly vast and huge. Central Park looks amazing on camera.
Matt Smith
Route 192 is its own thing, and you can’t find that anywhere else. The colors and shapes of the buildings, the way that all the small businesses in a way feed off of the parks and sort of rip off the themes of Disney – you’re not going to find that anywhere else.
Sean Baker
Taxes are how we pool our money for public health and safety, infrastructure, research, and services-from the development of vaccines and the Internet to public schools and universities, transportation, courts, police, parks, and safe drinking water.
Holly Sklar
I’m really going to miss all the people in the front office, media relations, marketing, all the great people at the ball park. They were my family for a while, and that part really stings. But life does go on.
Mike Quade
He [directo Park] gave me a sculpture, a jaguar. It is the animal, obviously, and it is in my bedroom at my parents’ place at the moment. But I am just about to move into my own place and I shall put it somewhere there. I shall make sure it has good lighting. This will be my first place of my own and I am so excited.
Mia Wasikowska
Secret Service agents detained an Iowa man with a gun who happened to be walking in a Des Moines park where President Bush was jogging. Were they out of their minds? White guys with guns put Bush in the White House.
Argus Hamilton
When you’re trying to look pretty, it’s a lot easier to compare you to other people. I always felt intimidated in pilot season trying to audition for ‘the girlfriend.’ Whereas when it’s like, ‘you’re auditioning for the part of this meth addict, trailer park whatever,’ it’s like, ‘Great!’
Marin Ireland
Well, Smoke n’ Mirrors has very much a world music flavor and it doesn’t park itself in one country. It borrows heavily from the Brazilian angle, which is dear to my heart, and I recorded several albums with that flavor.
Lee Ritenour
Without the support of local people, you might as well give up because you can make all the noise you like, you can demarcate a national park, but if the people outside want to go creeping into a forest you really can’t stop them. They’ve got to get a benefit.
Jane Goodall
Family trips to Yellowstone and to what are now national parks in Southern Utah, driving the primitive roads and cars of that day, were real adventures.
Paul D. Boyer
Don’t go looking for boys in the dark They will say pretty things then leave you with scars. Do go looking for boys in the park For that is where the true gentlemen are.
Anna Godbersen
My love of horses began in College Park, with me and 10 friends on two couches and a keg of beer in the back of a truck, heading to Pimlico at 6 A.M. to mark our place in the middle of the Preakness infield, where we never saw a horse run.
Kevin Plank
Why do u drive on a parkway and park in the driveway. Its messed up.
Justin Bieber
I didn’t have capital and influence in this industry. So I bought yellow pages and knocked each door of the company located at industrial parks.
Zhou Qunfei
I also love the makers of South Park, because they’re political, strong, and they’re making all of these comments that would get you shot for if you did it in a drama.
Michelle Rodriguez
Do not touch anything unnecessarily. Beware of pretty girls in dance halls and parks who may be spies, as well as bicycles, revolvers, uniforms, arms, dead horses, and men lying on roads – they are not there accidentally. Soviet infantry manual, issued in the 1930’s Only the winners decide what were war crimes.
Garry Wills
But there is so much more to do for the city we love… a Dallas with roads as strong as our businesses, parks as beautiful as our children, a downtown as tall as our imagination.
Laura Miller
Please also remember the pitiful gasping/thirsty little mouths/ beaks in summer. They’ll appreciate abundant/fresh/cool/clean/ water! Food they can get easily in parks/sidewalks!
Adela Popescu
While there’s always plenty of room for improvement, our government is actually quite effective and efficient. Our military and judicial systems and national parks are the best in the world. Unlike in countries where government corruption is rampant, I’ve never once been solicited for a bribe.
Whitney Tilson
That is all the National Parks are about. Use, but do no harm.
Wallace Stegner
It was cold autumn weather, but in spite of the cold they wandered up and down the roads of the Park for nearly three hours. They agreed to break off their intercourse; every bond, he said, is a bond to sorrow.
James Joyce
I watch my favorite shows-The Walking Dead, The Office, 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation-on Netflix to unwind. Actually, I eat most of my meals while watching Netflix. It’s like my companion.
Hannah Kearney
Every professional footballer should seek to play at least one game at Celtic Park. I have never felt anything like it.
Paolo Maldini
One can’t run in a park without a dog or make angels in the snow without a child and there are things one can’t do without a lover, so the loss of the lover is like an amputation and the patient goes into shock.
Merle Shain
Imagine a kind of system where you have lightweight electric vehicles relatively small battery capacity, and then picking up charge wherever they park. You never have to worry about filling up your car, never go to the gas station, never plug it in, never do any of these things.
William J. Mitchell
On a perfect weekend, I’ll stay in bed until I am rested, though I am not someone who sleeps late. Then I’ll go for a run through the parks nearby, even if it is frosty and cold, and I love meeting friends for brunch. You know you are truly on a day off if you have time to do brunch.
Birgitte Hjort Sorensen
I performed in Redlands, Calif., at Splash Kingdom. It reminded me of the water parks I went to as a kid. I was like, ‘I want to ride the rides!’
The biggest barrier to dealing with climate change is us: our own attachment to habits that are hard to shift, and our great ability to park or ignore uncomfortable choices.
Geoff Mulgan
If you put me in South Park, that audience is going to fall asleep in five minutes.
Stephan Pastis
My wife looks at the person Park Jae Sang and the singer who goes up on stage, Psy, as different people.
True ornament is not a matter of prettifying externals. It is organic with the structure it adorns, whether a person, a building, or a park. At its best it is an emphasis of structure, a realization in graceful terms of the nature of that which is ornamented
Frank Lloyd Wright
[My mother] was taking me to Shakespeare In The Park when I was like 6. There was just a lot of theater-going and a lot of movie-going and a lot of discussion about it afterwards, dissecting it and stuff.
Cynthia Nixon
I saw firsthand the devastating consequences of poaching. I saw elephants with ivory hacked from their faces and the lengths private parks go to protect their precious wildlife.
Ben Fogle
It’s the one species I wouldn’t mind seeing vanish from the face of the earth. I wish they were like the White Rhinosix of them left in the Serengeti National Park, and all males.
Alan Bennett
The forests of America, however slighted by man, must have been a great delight to God; for they were the best he ever planted. The whole continent was a garden, and from the beginning, it seemed to be favored above all the other wild parks and gardens of the globe.
John Muir
Preserving parks and open spaces is a winner because it doesn’t need to be explained to everyday Americans.
Frank Luntz
I don’t like you, Park. Sometimes I think I live for you
Rainbow Rowell
Enjoying outdoor recreation is not only good for physical health, but also for improving mental health, and I encourage everyone to explore some of the beautiful opportunities our state has to offer, particularly at those smaller, less explored state parks.
Ned Lamont
Fenway Park, in Boston, is a lyric little bandbox of a ballpark. Everything is painted green and seems in curiously sharp focus, like the inside of an old-fashioned peeping-type Easter egg.
John Updike
I experienced Kabul with my brother the way Amir and Hassan do: long school days in the summer, kite fighting in the winter time, westerns with John Wayne at Cinema Park, big parties at our house in Wazir Akbar Khan, picnics in Paghman.
Khaled Hosseini
There are over 400 parks in all 50 states that represent our country and that are enriched with stories that tell about how our country became what it is today. There is a lot of history frozen in these places.
Jordan Fisher
Even though the National Guard and Army Reserve see combat today, it rankles me that people assume it was some kind of waltz in the park back then.
Larry David
City parks serve, day in and day out, as the primary green spaces for the majority of Americans.
Bruce Babbitt
Prison service vans that travel 90 miles to take a prisoner 90 yards; paedophiles free to leer at children in the very parks where they have committed horrific crimes.
Trevor Phillips
I spent my 16th birthday high as a kite, jumping out of a tree topless in my local park just because it felt amazing hitting the ground.
Florence Welch
Venus, when her son was lost,
Cried him up and down the coast,
In hamlets, palaces, and parks,
And told the truant by his marks,-
Golden curls, and quiver, and bow.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Anyone who has ever been privileged to direct a film also knows that, although it can be like trying to write ‘War and Peace’ in a bumper car in an amusement park, when you finally get it right, there are not many joys in life that can equal the feeling.
Stanley Kubrick
The measure of any great civilization is its cities and a measure of a city’s greatness is to be found in the quality of its public spaces, its parks and squares.
John Ruskin
I can respect the gulf that separates alpinism from a running race and still appreciate that the physiology that accounts for endurance is the same if you are running a foot race in the city park or front pointing up the second ice field on the north face of the Eiger.
Steve House
My staff has been working on structural fixes to equitably help disadvantaged areas – left wanting after decades of neglect – to become complete communities with the parks, infrastructure and amenities they deserve.
Kevin Faulconer
I’ll sit in the park and feed the pigeons for a while.’ We don’t have pigeons.’ Then I’ll feed the pterodactyls.
Dean Koontz
I’m not just an actor born in L.A. I was born in the Griffith Park Hospital. You can’t get any more clichГ©d than that.
Val Kilmer
I thank those activists such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, and others. They risked – and sometimes lost – their lives in the name of freedom and equality.
Kenya Moore
The greatest romance in the life of a lyricist is when the right word meets the right note; often, however, a Park Avenue phrase elopes with a Bleecker Street chord, resulting in a shotgun wedding and a quickie divorce.
Yip Harburg
If we ever have free time, my partner and I are fond of going on walks through the local state forests and parks.
Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
I watch ‘Parks and Rec.’ It’s set in a fictitious city in Indiana.
Roy Hibbert
Their love as a dragonfly, skimming over echo park, stoppin to visit the lotus. Eating dreams and drinking blue sky.
Janet Fitch
There is a difference between a small community being herded into a park and murdered and all of these communities joining forces to make sure that something like that will not happen again.
Yair Lapid
Why do we park on driveways and drive on parkways? Just to be silly!
George Carlin
Shot me twice. I want my name, or I’m going to start charging you a fee every time I field something for you. And it’s going to be expensive. I’m Park Place. Bud-dy.” His red, goat-slitted eyes squinted at me from over his smoked glasses. “You’re more like Oriental Avenue right now, dove. What are you on?
Kim Harrison
I have a free couple of hours,” I told him, walking toward my car, which was parked on the next block. “There’s a very private, very secluded barn in Lookout Hill Park behind the carousel. I could be there in fifteen minutes.” I heard the smile in his voice. “You want me bad.
Becca Fitzpatrick
If you drive to, say, Shenandoah National Park, or the Great Smoky Mountains, you’ll get some appreciation for the scale and beauty of the outdoors. When you walk into it, then you see it in a completely different way. You discover it in a much slower, more majestic sort of way.
Bill Bryson
It’s very important that we keep these special, wild places. It defines the United States. Imagine our country without our national parks and our monuments. Here in California, imagine if you didn’t have in Southern Cal the Channel Islands or the great Highway 1, Big Sur up to Point Reyes up to the Redwood country.
Douglas Brinkley
When I was younger, I had some close friends who always loved European football, and Real Madrid at that time were the dominant force. I remember family holidays when we used to go to Spain, and we’d bring back replica shirts of Real Madrid and pretend to be the players when we played in the park.
Gareth Bale
The scenic ideals that surround even our national parks are carriers of a nostalgia for heavenly bliss and eternal calmness.
Robert Smithson
If you give me the ball, you’ll never see it again. Because I’ll knock it out of the f*****g park.
CM Punk
Liveability means being able to take your kids to school, go to work, see a doctor, drop by the grocery or Post Office, go out to dinner and a movie, and play with your kids at the park – all without having to get in your car.
Ray LaHood
In the old days, you know, they didn’t have batting cages. And in most ball parks, they only had one runway to the dugout.
Pete Rose
I watch so much TV, it’s sad. I watch ‘Happy Endings’, ’30 Rock’, ‘Parks and Rec’, ‘The Office’, ‘Eagleheart’, ‘Children’s Hospital’. ‘Modern Family’ I guess I’m still kinda watching.
Anders Holm
When I started my career, we were running around water parks and ridiculous things like that. You used to drive in dreading pre-season back then, but now you know it’s going to be pretty tough, but it’s going to be probably what you need. It’s going to be good for you instead of just slogging away.
Gareth Barry
I’ve known my lady (for she loves a tune) For fevers take an opera in June: And, though perhaps you’ll think the practice bold, A midnight park is sov’reign for a cold.
Edward Young
There was no actually stock footage in “Medium Cool.” I wrote the script. I wrote the riots. And I integrated the actors in the film in the park during the demonstrations. But nowhere was it like we had stock footage and then later, in editing, integrated it into the film. It was all done at the time.
Haskell Wexler
I made my money in Iscar. I spend my money on the industrial parks.
Stef Wertheimer
Like, on the ‘Parks And Rec’ set, I still feel like I’m a guest star. Being a fan of the show, it’s really surreal to be on the set and see that it’s not real, and getting to know the actors and they’re not their characters.
Adam Scott
My relaxation has always been my animals – going to the dog park with them, going to the beach.
Hilary Swank
I love doing comedy. One of my favorite things in the world is to do ‘Parks and Recreation’; a big fun character.
Ben Schwartz
I love England, the people, the parks, the theatre.
Woody Harrelson
My favorite show is ‘Parks and Recreation.’
Kerris Dorsey
Ron Swanson is more than the MVP of the ‘Parks and Recreation’ squad, more than just the funniest character on TV – he’s the perfect depiction of aggrieved American manhood at the twilight of the empire.
Rob Sheffield
For nine years, till the spring of 1881, we lived in Oxford, in a little house north of the Parks, in what was then the newest quarter of the University town.
Mary Augusta Ward
Glaciers are almost gone from Glacier National Park
Donella Meadows
Television is not the truth. Television is a goddamned amusement park.
Paddy Chayefsky
My early exposure to all the leviathans of the Saturday matinee creature features inspired me, when I grew up, to make ‘Jurassic Park.’
Steven Spielberg
You can park your snark at the gate, Omaha.
Rainbow Rowell
They sat on a park bench, held hands, and told each other their stories hour after hour. They were not lonely anymore. They had found and been found by their 100% perfect other. What a wonderful thing it is to find and be found by your 100% perfect other. It’s a miracle, a cosmic miracle.
Haruki Murakami
If you’re a Brit you kinda get used to people being cold and aloof and just generally arrogant – particularly musicians. (Compared to Londoners New Yorkers are a walk in the park!)
Thea Gilmore
I haven’t heard from Bobby since May when we had our conversation, but then this thing broke last week, where they arrested him, and we were watching what was going on on the whole deal, and I was actually flabbergasted, at what the then police chief Parks was saying.
Tommy Bond
Improving Alabama’s parks, trails and ball fields makes our communities better places to live and promotes healthier and happier people.
Kay Ivey
So. You refuse my money, you serve me thirty-year-old Highland Park scotch, and we’ve been in the same room for approximately five minutes, yet none of my bones are broken. This leads me to believe that your back is against the wall and you desperately need me for something. I’m dying to know what that is.
Ilona Andrews
Five days a week my body is a temple; the other two, it’s an amusement park.
Jerry Doyle
Active conservation [of gorillas] involves simply going out into the forest, on foot, day after day after day, attempting to capture poachers, killing-regretfully-poacher dogs, which spread rabies within the park, and cutting down traps.
Dian Fossey
I’m afraid to look in the mirror. I’m afraid I’m going to see an old lady with white hair, just like the old ladies in the park. Alittle bundle in a black shawl just waiting for the coffin.
Paddy Chayefsky
Rosa Parks’ entire career has been one as working as a civil rights activist.
Douglas Brinkley
On my first day in New York a guy asked me if I knew where Central Park was. When I told him I didn’t, he said: Do you mind if I mug you here?
Paul Merton
My idea of gambling was walking through Central Park, whistling show tunes.
Tommy Tune
Anheuser-Busch gives two free cases of beer to its employees at all of its parks, like Busch Gardens. That’s a comforting thought the next time you’re getting ready to get on the roller coaster!
Jay Leno
I remember running around the park as a kid and pretending, shouting out ‘Michael Owen in the cup final. He scores!’ To actually fulfil that dream when you’re older and score two goals made it just a magical day.
Michael Owen
When I was a young boy I wanted to play for Newcastle United, I wanted to wear the number nine shirt and I wanted to score goals at St James’ Park. I’ve lived my dream and I realise how lucky I’ve been to have done that.
Alan Shearer
I was a producer and rapper before Linkin Park. Once the band took off, it was the center of my focus. A couple of years ago, I started missing doing straight-up hip hop, and that’s when Fort Minor began.
Mike Shinoda
Brits are far more intelligent and civilised than Americans. I love the fact that you can hail a taxi and just pick up your pram and put in the back of the cab without having to collapse it. I love the parks and places I go for dinner and my friends.
Gwyneth Paltrow
Lizzy Parks. Check this out, this is brilliantShe is a fantastic jazz singer definitely one to watch from now on, she’s got a great voice and she’s a great songwriter as well
Jamie Cullum
As every real estate agent knows, a poor house in good surroundings will sell for a higher price than a better house in poor surroundings, and in a town they confidently ask 25 percent more rent for a flat with a view of a park that for an identical flat with no view.
Nan Fairbrother
My aura is psychedelic, flow non-prehistoric metamorphic boric like acid no hat tricks a classic so park that ass like Jurassic
Park women, properly so called, are those degraded creatures, utterly lost to all sense of shame, who wander about the paths most frequented after nightfall in the Parks, and consent to any species of humiliation for the sake of acquiring a few shillings
Henry Mayhew
The thing about drugs and sex is that you lose all your inhibitions. I’ve had sex in trains, planes, wine bars… and quite a few car parks!
Robbie Williams
I’m just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream. I never thought this would ever happen.
Hilary Swank
Rosa Parks showed us all that one little person can make a whole bunch of noise without so much as a whisper. She showed the world that the color of your skin shouldn’t determine what part of the bus you sit in… as you ride through life.
Richard Pryor
In the struggle against sexual discrimination on Wall Street, Pamela K. Martens is a latter-day Rosa Parks – a woman who, metaphorically speaking, refused to sit in the back of the bus.
Gary Weiss
I rely on my iPad for on-the-go entertainment. I stock it with TV shows, like ‘Parks and Recreation’ and the British version of ‘The Office.’ I’m reading a Charles Manson biography on it too, since I’m weirdly into true crime.
Phoebe Tonkin
Friends are like a pleasant park where you wish to go; while you may enjoy the flowers, you may not eat them.
E. W. Howe
Sometimes I park in handicap spaces while handicapped people make handicapped faces.
Denis Leary
Former brownfields, depressed urban areas, and hard-hit rural towns blossom as eco-industrial parks, green enterprise zones, and eco-villages. Farmers’ markets, community co-ops, and mobile markets get fresh, organic produce to the people who can’t afford to shop at health-food stores.
Van Jones
Ooh, big day in town for our park warden,” I said. “They’re even making you wear the uniform. Hayley’s mom will be happy. She thinks you look hot in it.” Dad turned as red as his hair. Mom’s laugh floated out from her studio. “Maya Delaney. Leave your father alone.
Kelley Armstrong
When I went to Australia, I went shark diving. It was crazy. It was called ‘extreme’ shark diving because even though we were in cages, we literally could touch the sharks swimming by. They were huge and I’m terrified of sharks. Then I went to a wildlife park and held kangaroos. That was nice.
Taylor Lautner
Most of the writers in TV are from L.A. or New York, and those are places where people are cynical and snarky. And they fly from L.A. to New York in an airplane over this vast, expansive land where people aren’t snarky; they’re a lot more like the ‘Parks and Rec’ characters.
Chris Pratt
If you’re gay and you can’t hold hands, or you’re black and you can’t catch a taxi, or you’re a woman and you can’t go into the park, you are aware there’s a menace. That’s costly on a psychic level. The world should be striving to make all its members secure.
Tony Kushner
It’s so unique. Wilson Park is just such a gem. It’s in a convenient location.
David Wright
A zombie amusement park sounds like fun, but the health code violations alone are enough to turn your stomach.
Jim C. Hines
I started ‘Will & Grace’ when I was 39, and Nick started ‘Parks and Rec’ when he was 39. And he’s really on the same trajectory; it’s all happening with the same timing. It’s so funny to see it all happening again.
Megan Mullally
Persistence. Change doesn’t happen overnight. You have to stay with it. Rosa Parks helped start the Civil Rights movement in earnest in 1955. Then it was nearly a decade until the Civil Rights Act was passed.
Kabir Sehgal
It’s funny to me that people find other people getting coffee really interesting, or walking their dog in the dog park.
Jake Gyllenhaal
I’ve watched Jurassic Park twice in my life – once when I was six and the second time a couple of weeks ago. It inspired me to think about how gaps in time change our way of perceiving.
Nicolas Jaar
Fondling,’ she saith, ‘since I have hemm’d thee here Within the circuit of this ivory pale, I’ll be a park, and thou shalt be my deer; Feed where thou wilt, on mountain or in dale: Graze on my lips, and if those hills be dry, Stray lower, where the pleasant fountains lie.
William Shakespeare
‘Parks and Rec’ is definitely a mainstream show – the group that watches it on TV on Thursday night is small, but the audience that watches it on things like Hulu, Netflix, and Tivo is enormous.
Adam Scott
On Mondays and Fridays in early May, nearly 18,000 children-the equivalent of all the elementary students in suburban Glencoe, Wilmette, Glenview, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Deerfield, Highland Park and Evanston-are assigned to classes with no teacher.
Jonathan Kozol
If I couldn’t be a fiction writer, I would be a roller coaster designer for theme parks
Mike Wells
I have family in Tanzania. I can’t even explain the joy of riding through the Tanzania national park and seeing giraffes run across the road and elephants over in a pond and baboons running.
Emanuel Cleaver
Is there any nation on earth that has more natural attractions, from the scenic coastal towns of Maine to the volcanic islands of Hawaii and the natural beauty of our majestic national parks?
Stephen Moore
I didn’t have an agent before ‘Parks,’ and once you’re on a show, they’re not going to make money off of you. So if you’ve already booked something without an agent, unless they really want to hustle during the downtime, there’s seven months when they’re not going to make money off of you.
We’re in ‘Jurassic Park’ territory. If we go to the zoo in the future, we’ll have zoos for extinct animals.
Michio Kaku
You can’t find an uglier urban environment than the centre of Hollywood, but then you go to Griffith Park, you go to the beach, you go to the mountains, and it’s rural. I live up in the Hollywood Hills and I have frogs, owls, coyotes, mountain lions – but I’m ten minutes from the centre of the city.
Now everyday ain’t gonna be no picnic
Love ain’t no walk in the park
All you can do is make the best of it now
Can’t be afraid of the dark
Just know that you’re not in this thing alone
There’s always a place in me that you can call home.
Cheryl Cole
What you might not know is that shortly after she worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others, Rosa Parks had to leave her home in Alabama to escape the constant threat of violence.
Michel Martin
You can really learn from Donahue. I didn’t know you could be a woman in a man’s body. You go out and you can’t parallel park.
Roseanne Barr
A society – any society – is defined as a set of mutual benefits and duties embodied most visibly in public institutions: public schools, public libraries, public transportation, public hospitals, public parks, public museums, public recreation, public universities, and so on.
Robert Reich
My favorite team growing up was the Cincinnati Reds. Living within 10 minutes of the ball park I went to as many games as possible growing up as long as they didn’t conflict with my baseball schedule.
Graham Taylor
Bangkok 8 is one of the most startling and provocative mysteries that I’ve read in years. The characters are marvelously unique, the setting is intoxicating and the plot unwinds in dark illusory strands, reminiscent of Gorky Park. Once I started, I didn’t want to put it down.
Carl Hiaasen
So I did in fact spend two and a half years in the Middlesbrough car park practising skills. But if you spend four or five or six hours a day practising, you get better.
Craig Johnston
I assumed, “Well, I must’ve sounded like Conan O’Brien, or a reasonable facsimile or something.” And there I am in the movie [South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut ]. I was very lucky.
Brent Spiner
We don’t have a full black community in Boston. Our people are scattered. There’s a middle class where I live in Highland Park but it’s not like a piece of Washington or Chicago.
Henry Hampton
My mom used to take me down to the Jersey Shore when I was 7, 8, 9 years old. I can remember being down in that area – Belmar, Seaside Heights, Asbury Park and all those places that I went back and revisited.
David Cassidy
When I was a kid, I was very lucky that I grew up in suburban Virginia, which, at the time, felt like a grey area between rural and suburban, so there were a lot of forests and parks.
Ian Harding
When the Korean economy was just trying to get back on its feet after the war, having parks was a luxury.
Lee Myung-bak
National parks are cathedrals of spirituality and emotion, and unfortunately, they are being loved to death by many of the same people who enjoy them the most.
Michael Frome
There are “bus bench” workouts and “park bench” workouts. A bus bench and a park bench look exactly the same, but your expectations sitting in them are radically different.
Dan John
Is a park any better than a coal mine? What’s a mountain got that a slag pile hasn’t? What would you rather have in your garden–an almond tree or an oil well?
Jean Giraudoux
Happy will be the men who, having the power and the love and the benevolent forecast to [create a park], will do it. They will not be forgotten. The trees and their lovers will sing their praises, and generations yet unborn will rise up and call them blessed.
John Muir
Every one knows that there are no real forests in England.The deer in the parks of the great are demurely domestic cattle, fat as London alderman.
Karl Marx
I got a job at an amusement park. I like to make the rides more terrifying by throwing a couple of screws onto the seats.
Emo Philips
Theme-park approach to nature. We judge plants and animals by whether they’re entertaining to us. We gravitate toward animals and plants that are big, dramatic, beautiful and at eye-level.
Gary Larson
A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination. On a cold, rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen, instead.
Caitlin Moran
Parks represent an efficient, cost-effective way to improve public health.
Chuck Norris
I’d done “Gosford Park,” a film that Julian Fellowes had written that Robert Altman directed.
Maggie Smith
Blind people come to the park just to hear him pitch.
Reggie Jackson
Well, now that I have a baby, I’m that person who’s looking for all the parks. I’m also the person who lost their coat because I was juggling so many items. So I’m that person: I lost my coat, I lost my scarf, and it’s cold now.
Jenna Fischer
When I’m watching South Park I don’t think it’s written by neo-Nazis. They know exactly what they’re doing.
Eric Andre
The same people in the Congress who are busy kicking holes in the social safety net are also those who would sell off the nation’s forests for a song, give away its national parks, and trash its wilderness preserves; there is a connection between the two impulses.
Paul Gruchow
Running in Central Park is my favorite thing to wake up and do. I have my own specific path that I have to run every single time. There’s a little bit of OCD involved, but I love it.
Nate Ruess
I remember going to Shibe Park, Connie Mack, when I was a kid with my dad and my mom. I felt more neighborhood-esque. And I like the idea, and I love the new downtown ballparks. I love when the venue is situated in a vibrant part of the urban setting.
Joe Maddon
Starkville is an Indian word for trailer park.
Skip Bertman
Who… who are you?’ I asked at last. It was true. I had left a body in the park, but seriously, what was I supposed to do? Drag him back to my hotel and tell my bellhop my friend had had too much to drink?
Richelle Mead
Dollywood is a family park, and all families are welcome. We do have a policy about profanity or controversial messages on clothing or signs. It is to protect the individual wearing or carrying them, as well as to keep down fights or problems by those opposed to it at the park.
Dolly Parton
Conservation of any endangered species must begin with stringent efforts to protect its natural habitat by the enforcement of rigid legislation against human encroachment into parks and other game sanctuaries.
Dian Fossey
Do you think there’d be a Givenchy in the hood if it wasn’t for that South Park photo?
Kanye West
My late father used to say that they started out without two nickles to rub together and lived in that little house in Everroad Park West.
Mike Pence
Lots of ballplayers have their own personal music blasted by the sound systems in modern ball parks.
George Vecsey
Parks contribute to the health and wellbeing of our communities and are an important resource for all people, including those with special needs.
Roy Cooper
The beanball is one of the meanest things on Earth and no decent fellow would use it. The beanball is a potential murderer. If I were a batter and thought the pitcher really tried to bean me, I’d be inclined to wait for him outside the park with a baseball bat.
Walter Johnson
I would try and help everybody, because the game was so easy for me. It was just like walking in the park.
Willie Mays
Even on a personal note, my dressing table downstairs is crowded with things, like a mini landscape. It’s a city with buildings and towers and roads. There’s a pool and a little park. When I move something around it becomes a different tableau.
Tony Curtis
The padlock clicked open. A voice soundingoddly like South Parks’s Cartman echoed through my quivering brain. Goddammit!
Jennifer Rardin
My relationship with the mountains actually started when I was 16. Every year, a group used to be taken from Auckland Grammar down to the Tangariro National Park for a skiing holiday.
Edmund Hillary
I can play anywhere on the park. Im a bit like that in bed, too
Steven Gerrard
Within National Parks is room–glorious room–room in which to find ourselves, in which to think and hope, to dream and plan, to rest and resolve.
Enos Mills
Your body is the garage where you park your soul.
Wayne Dyer
Last week I was in London at an awards show, then I flew home and was in an RV park with my wife and kids in our motorhome, this week I’m in NY doing a charity event, and tomorrow I’ll be coaching my daughters soccer practice. I guess the range of roles I play on film stem from the range of roles I play in real life.
Peter Facinelli
If you had to point to one thing that made it less likely that the Red Sox would win the World Series, I would say it was those people that go to Fenway Park to watch the games. And then the media around it.
Michael Lewis
The silence of a shut park does not sound like country silence: it is tense and confined.
Elizabeth Bowen
I look just like the girls next door… if you happen to live next door to an amusement park.
Dolly Parton
Street and park trees provide tremendous benefits to cities.
Gavin Newsom
The first big thing that I did with my dad was the bicycle sequence in “The Great Muppet Caper,” where Kermit and Piggy are riding bicycles in Battersea Park in London and that was a complex marionetting and cranes driving through the park, it was a complicated scene, and I did that with my dad.
Brian Henson
I call myself the Amusement Park. That’s because I’m funny and scary at the same time.
Terry Crews
Before I started on ‘Borgen’, people introduced me to some great American box-sets to convince me that TV could be good. I now watch them all the time. Amy Poehler is very funny in ‘Parks and Recreation’ and ‘In Treatment,’ with Gabriel Byrne, is also really good.
Sidse Babett Knudsen
No, writing musicals is the hardest thing in the world. And it was really funny, because I remember when the South Park movie came out, there were some critics that said, ‘Well it’s obvious that in order to get it to be 90 minutes they filled some time with music.’
Trey Parker
I’m as guilty as anyone, because I helped to herald the digital era with Jurassic Park. But the danger is that it can be abused to the point where nothing is eye-popping any more.
Steven Spielberg
Obviously I’m a big fan of ‘South Park,’ but it gets tiring at times when there’s so much of it.
Seth MacFarlane
One may lack words to express the impact of beauty but no one who has felt it remains untouched. It is renewal, enlargement, intensification. The parks preserve it permanently in the inheritance of the American citizens.
Bernard DeVoto
I was prosecutor for 18 years. I was threatened by drug dealers, murders, and organized crime. This was a walk in the park.
Tom Marino
Parks are but pavement disguised with a growth of grass.
George Gissing
If Rosa Parks had taken a poll before she sat down in the bus in Montgomery, she’d still be standing.
Mary Frances Berry
Best atmosphere I ever played in was at Celtic Park in the UEFA Cup for Liverpool.
Michael Owen
At least Manhattan, in terms of danger and eccentricity, is much more of a theme park now. You couldn’t really shoot the old Law & Order in New York today. It’s a different city.
Chris Noth
On Halloween, witches come true; Wild ghosts escape from dreams. Each monster dances in the park.
Nick Gordon
The 5,000 or so acres of Royal Parks are one of the things that make London special.
Zac Goldsmith
Damn, I can’t wait until it get dark,
So I can light these fireworks up at the park,
And celebrate my independence,
It’s the 4th of July, but I ain’t got 10 cents.
The park achieved a kind of reality. Like these virtual reality games the children are playing with. I told them we were doing this 40 years ago! Disneyland is virtual reality.
John Hench
Standing in the park, I was wondering why a frisbee looks larger the closer it gets…then it hit me
Stewart Francis
She went from opera, park, assembly, play,
To morning walks, and prayers three hours a day.
To part her time ‘twixt reading and bohea,
To muse, and spill her solitary tea,
Or o’er cold coffee trifle with the spoon,
Count the slow clock, and dine exact at noon.
Alexander Pope
One day ladies will take their computers for walks in the park and tell each other, “My little computer said such a funny thing this morning”.
Alan Turing
Pubs would be number one. And black cabs and cabbies – moody cabbies always crack me up. And the other thing I love is the parks: the parks around London don’t get enough airtime – I think they’re sensational, and when spring hits, the first thing I’ll do is go to the park.
Poppy Delevingne
I love going to the movie theatre, seeing live comedy, and going to amusement parks.
Jennette McCurdy
We could park the van and walk to town, find cheapest bottle of wine that we could find. And talk about the road behind, how getting lost is not a waste of time.
Jack Johnson
Adelaide is terribly underrated. There are lovely wide streets, beautiful parks, one of the most scenic cricket grounds, wonderful beaches, and vineyards nearby. The food and the people are lovely, and it’s not too big and sprawling.
Jonathan Agnew
I have little compassion for people in trailer parks who refuse to move after getting tornado warnings. How hard is it for them to relocate? Their houses have wheels.
Carlos Mencia
The Conservative Party mustn’t sound like the old man on the park bench who says things were better in 1985, or 1955, or 1855.
George Osborne
Australia is an island surrounded by water. My fondest memories growing up were trips to the beach, walking around the harbor and playing in the beautiful parks.
Tammin Sursok
I’m the only woman who can walk in Central Park at night… and reduce the crime rate.
Phyllis Diller
NASA is an utterly fascinating place, and the fact that the buildings look so anonymous almost make it more fascinating. You walk by a generic office-park-looking building, and you have no idea what’s going on inside.
It’s (Phil Niekro’s knuckleball) like watching Mario Andretti park a car.
Ralph Kiner
My older brother was involved in the folk movement. We would gather every weekend in Washington Park. The folk songs were so important to my reality.
Anne Waldman
Southwest Detroit has been through hell (excuse my directness) with Matty Moroun, his Bridge Company, and all his fancy-named subsidiaries. From blighted homes that my boys have to walk by to allowing his trucks to rumble down our residential streets, passing our parks, schools, and homes – we have had it.
Rashida Tlaib
So what, I’m living in a park. Parks are beautiful. I’m a musician. And I’m tired of dumb people who don’t know where I come from.
Jaco Pastorius
And as I walk round the park I always think, ‘Maybe round the corner I am going to find something beautiful.’ I always think positively. It is very rare that you find me in a mood that is sad or melancholic.
Sophia Loren
On Christmas Day I’ll head off for a couple of laps around the Serpentine, or a trek around the whole of Hyde Park. Or I’ll walk right across town, with Curtis, my son Jamie’s bull mastiff.
Stella Vine
South Park called…they want their everything back.
Jeff Ross
The National Parks are overlooked and underrated, and they shouldn’t be.
Hallie Jackson
In many ways, history is marked as ‘before’ and ‘after’ Rosa Parks. She sat down in order that we all might stand up, and the walls of segregation came down.
Jesse Jackson
The Right has such antiquated ideas – if they took charge, I think they’d want to close the parks, open the land up for development. It’s an ongoing battle to keep the parks strong.
Robert Redford
Why? Why should the bond between a people and their baseball team be so intense? Fenway Park is a part of it, offering a physical continuum to the bond, not only because Papi can stand in the same batter’s box as Teddy Ballgame, but also because a son might sit in the same wooden-slat seat as his father.
Tom Verducci
I was just thinking of bunding up Cecily and feeding her to the ducks in Hyde Park,” said Will, pushing his wet hair back and favoring Jem with a rare smile.
Cassandra Clare
I had the perfect job for a gamer. From February to October, I’d get up at 7 in the morning with nothing to do but play games until I had to be at the park around 1 or 2 o’clock. When I got back after the game, I played until 3 or 4 in the morning.
Curt Schilling
You have something on your neck. What Looks like a bite mark, what were you doing out all night, anyway? Nothing. I went walking in the park. Tried to clear my head. And ran into a vampire What? No! I fell. On your neck?
Cassandra Clare
Using encryption on the Internet is the equivalent of arranging an armored car to deliver credit card information from someone living in a cardboard box to someone living on a park bench.
Gene Spafford
Only one party sticks out in my mind as a kid. It was the best party ever. I was 5 years old, and my mom dressed me up in a church dress and stockings to go to the party and park.
I’m just a person, just Jay Park, but people expect me to be the best dancer or a man with the perfect personality. That’s not me.
Jay Park
Yeah, no one really grows up competing in the bobsled. You have to be 16 years old before you can even drive one. And there are really only two places in the country where you can bobsled – Park City, Utah, and Lake Placid, New York.
Elana Meyers
[when I’m not working I like to] listen to music, watch something really funny like South Park.
Queen Latifah
I love going to parks.
Diana Taylor
Where’s the activism? Nobody knows. And anyone who thinks they know, like Todd Gitlin, has their head up their ass. Nobody knows. The day before every revolution that’s ever happened, that revolution was impossible. The day before Rosa Parks, that was impossible. The day after, it was inevitable.
Bill Ayers
I don’t want the public to see the world they live in while they’re in the Park (Disneyland). I want to feel they’re in another world.
Walt Disney
The studies about differences between the sexes that you see kind of get propped up in the media are more often than not denigrating women in some way, saying that women really don’t have any spatial understanding, and that’s why they can’t park.
Jessica Valenti
I was actually the manager of the games department of an amusement park when I was at college, so I understood the coin-op side of the games business very well.
Nolan Bushnell
A squirrel attacked me. I got attacked by a squirrel in Battersea Park. They’re dangerous. It’s rare. I’ve torn most of the ligaments in my knee. So no football for me. It’s early retirement now. I’ve got a floating knee-cap!
Niall Horan
I think you can have moderate success by copying something else, but if you really want to knock it out of the park, you have to do something different and take chances.
Lee Ann Womack
At the end of the day, I want to spend time with my daughter, and this schedule enables me to do that while still having fun hosting ‘106 Park.’ I’m not really eager to get back into music just yet; I’m really eager to get into another movie before I put out an album.
Bow Wow
People think we don’t give a toss about the game, but when I walked out of Windsor Park that night I felt lower than a snake’s belly. The reality is still there.
Rio Ferdinand
One would expect that private property taken by eminent domain would become land available for public use such as parks and roads. Unfortunately, this decision creates a loophole for government to manipulate the definition of public use simply to generate greater tax revenue.
Jim Ryun
Prison’s a walk in the park compared with being sectioned, mate, it really is.
Adam Ant
I walk in the park every day, and when people come and ask for a photograph, I say, “Oh, my God!” It means they recognize that I have been doing something right and they want to have a photograph taken with me.
Carolina Herrera
Disneyland is not just another amusement park. It’s unique, and I want it kept that way. Besides, you don’t work for a dollar – you work to create and have fun.
Walt Disney
He looked like those paintings of baby angels – what do you call them, hubbubs? No cherubs. That’s it. He looked like a cherub who’d turned middle-aged in a trailer park.
Rick Riordan
If I ever had to be on an amusement park ride, I probably wouldn’t get on one; I’m not a very adventurous person!
Tammin Sursok
I saw a robin redbreast in Central Park today, but it turned out to be a sparrow with an exit wound.
David Letterman
I begged her to write a song and she said yes. I am a huge Regina Spektor fan. I think she’s a genius and just a lovely soul, and I wanted her voice on it. And she agreed, which is just the coolest thing, ever. She knocked it out of the park.
Jenji Kohan
Civilization in our time is driven by materialism and troubled by pollution, over-population, corruption, and violence. National parks can hardly be uncoupled from the society around them, but that only makes it more important to protect them and keep them whole and pure.
Michael Frome
If the wind is blowing like stink and everything is working right, a twelve-meter sailboat can go eleven and a half or twelve miles an hour, the same speed at which a bond lawyer runs around the Cental Park Reservoir.
P. J. O’Rourke
Devices that allow people to shoot up to 100 rounds of ammunition at one time have no place in our schools, no place in our parks, no place on our streets, no place in our communities, and no place in this country.
Elizabeth Esty
One of my favorites is ‘Parks and Recreation.’ Great show; awesome writing; beautiful, diverse cast. They also have a very diverse writer’s room, which I love.
Lena Waithe
The question is not whether to close the parks, but how to accomplish this goal.
James Hansen
The only movie that I would ever even consider retrofitting is the first ‘Jurassic Park,’ which I think would look pretty spectacular in 3D. That’s the only one of my films that I would consider doing in 3D.
Steven Spielberg
When I got my job on ‘Parks,’ it was so dreamy, kind of unfathomable. I didn’t think a job that excellent could exist for me.
Nick Offerman
Yosemite Park… None can escape its charms. Its natural beauty cleans and warms like a fire, and you will be willing to stay forever in one place like a tree.
John Muir
My big running discovery was around Stanley Park in Vancouver. Miss it. That’s a six-mile loop. Now I smile when I get four miles done. Age is a beast.
Michael Weatherly
When I was growing up, we used to play basketball in a park that was never shoveled when it snowed. The basketball rims were never fixed. And we understood then that there was a relationship between public policy and our quality of life.
DeForest Soaries
I just need to come to the park every day thinking something good is going to happen to me and hoping today is going to be the day.
Carlos Beltran
Take short walks in the park down a happy trail.
Frederick Lenz
Now, the magic of British parks at night, as Bill Oddie presents.. Gaywatch.
Frankie Boyle
The campaign to put a woman on the $20 bill has narrowed the choices down to four finalists. The four finalists are Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Flo from the Progressive Insurance ads.
Conan O’Brien
I’ve always had a thing for theme parks and their less-glorious cousins, amusement parks, the carnival midway, and others of such ilk.
Greg Rucka
Contradictions, most of all, a balance between chaos and order. It needs neighborhoods vibrating with energy just as much as cozy little corners and parks; well-tended, middle-class sections as well as an alternative scene; technology centers for innovative youth and social facilities for older people.
Charles Landry
Some of the longest home runs I’ve hit, I didn’t actually realize they were going that far. Everyone says, ‘What does it feel like to hit the ball that far?’ Actually, there’s no feeling at all. I know when the ball meets the bat whether or not it’s left the park. It’s a nice easy thing.
Mark McGwire
In France it was Joan of Arc; in the Crimea it was Florence Nightingale; in the deep south there was Rosa Parks; in India there was Mother Teresa and in Florida there was Katherine Harris.
Larry Gatlin
For some people, a park is the only place in their entire world where they can see something beautiful.
Bette Midler
A lot of times in parks the large dogs and little dogs separate. That creates the opposite of social. Sometimes dogs run back in forth with a fence dividing them so it is fence fighting with social interaction.
Cesar Millan
St. Petersburg is a wonderful city. You have wonderful parks, birds singing in the trees, manatees in the water, pelicans. So it’s like this little paradise on Earth.
Bjarke Ingels
Can we all admit that ‘Parks and Recreation’ is horrible? Is this something we would all know, but don’t say? Maybe everything should not be improv’d.
Andy Kindler
I don’t know why people were so upset with me. Prince got his own symbol. I just wanted to adopt the handicap symbol as my own so I could park in handicap spots. Deformed people should be honored to park so close to me. Meeting a celebrity like me may give them hope in their mistake of a life.
Zach Braff
Youth is fair, a graceful stag, Leaping, playing in a park. Age is gray, a toothless hag, Stumbling in the dark.
I. L. Peretz
Today my son and I went for a stroll and saw the sea lions and watched the sunset and played ball in the park with our dog.
Charisma Carpenter
It’s a crying shame we don’t play more parks and fairs. I would love to go right to the Chamber of Commerce or whoever they are, so that we could get involved in a different way.
Davy Jones
Park women, properly so called, are those degraded creatures, utterly lost to all sense of shame, who wander about the paths most frequented after nightfall in the Parks, and consent to any species of humiliation for the sake of acquiring a few shillings.
Henry Mayhew
Jordan Henderson is a player who likes to do his business in the middle of the park.
Jason McAteer
The making of the far-famed New York Central Park was opposed by even good men, with misguided pluck, perseverance, and ingenuity, but straight right won its way, and now that park is appreciated. So we confidently believe it will be with our great national parks and forest reservations.
John Muir
Autos for years seemed to give us freedom and independence, but when they create traffic jams and other problems in the parks, the experience of serenity in nature that visitors expect is seriously diminished, if not destroyed.
Michael Frome
Everything is calm, happier, and less stressed. As soon as you drive into the park, it’s like you’ve entered an oasis.
Jemma Kidd
I have a theory that there is something abnormal about children who like to practice instruments They are either geniuses or, more often, completely untalented. I certainly did not like to practice, and the teacher who hit me, and the view of the park, did not help to improve my attitude.
Georg Solti
We have breathtaking state and national parks, flourishing adventure tourism and culinary scenes and the world’s best horses. And of course bourbon.
Andy Beshear
I love going to around the public parks and just skating around the kids and stuff with them and obviously going out with my friends and going out and hitting the streets and stuff.
Nyjah Huston
I was such a fan of Aziz. I watched ‘Parks and Rec’ like every other self-respecting hipster and loved his character so much and just thought he was so interesting.
Lena Waithe
I wanted so badly to play in the park across the street because the kids were playing baseball and football but I had to record.
Michael Jackson
I love New York, though I’ll never eat any of the ice creams that they sell in the park. That’s just disgusting. You see the little picture of them? They all have a little bite taken out of them already.
Arj Barker
Saturday night in Toledo Ohio, Is like being nowhere at all, All through the day how the hours rush by, You sit in the park and you watch the grass die.
John Denver
Now 4th street park after dark is dangerous, might get clapped, if you look strange to us
Heavy D
Many have asked, pointing incredulously toward a sweep of tract homes and billboards, why picture that? The question sounds simple, but it implies a difficult issue – why open our eyes anywhere but in undamaged places like national parks?
Robert Adams
A woman gave my dad $400 so we could get an apartment. We were living in a park. That’s how we got started: Four hundred bucks, and look at me. When I donate a computer to a school, I never know what’s going to come out of it.
Gilbert Arenas
The parks are our national treasures, and they must be shown more respect, not only by visitors but also the people who run them.
Michael Frome
It wasn’t so long ago that I was a working mom myself. And I know that sometimes, much as we all hate to admit it, it’s just easier to park the kids in front of the TV for a few hours, so we can pay the bills or do the laundry or just have some peace and quiet for a change.
Michelle Obama
There is something very pleasurable about watching cartoons, a really warm, comfortable feeling. My taste is quite broad, but most of all I like American cartoons. Early Disney, Betty Boop, Roadrunner, Ren & Stimpy, South Park. Sometimes I’ll watch Pokemon or bad 80s cartoons.
Jim Jarmusch
It’s fun to go to a supermarket or a park or a shopping mall where human beings convene. They’re so caught up in their own personal reality as to not see life, except in terms that add to or detract from their movie.
Frederick Lenz
I’ve always been a fan of melody and emotional melancholy, whether it was Rites of Spring or Tears for Fears or Neil Young. If I hear a song that has a sweet melody, I’m a sucker for it, whether it’s Linkin Park or Little Richard.
Dave Grohl
NRDC has helped bring hope spots to more of our shared ocean waters. We helped draft and pass a California law creating a network of underwater parks stretching from the Oregon border to the Mexican border.
Frances Beinecke
In Hanover Park they highlighted the terrible plight of backyard dwellers and the fact that year after year nothing has been done to help you: the hope and despair you all live with every day.
Mangosuthu Buthelezi
The National Park Service today exemplifies one of the highest traditions of public service.
Stewart Udall
I always dreamed about scoring at St. James’ Park. I fancied my chances and the ball flew into the net. I was ecstatic.
Alan Shearer
Looking at yourself through the media is like looking at one of those rippled mirrors in an amusement park.
Edmund Muskie
I love the NBC comedies. I DVR ‘Parks and Recreation,’ ‘Community,’ ‘The Office,’ ’30 Rock.’ I love most of the HBO shows. I love ‘Archer.’ ‘Archer’s a great show. I’m big on Netflix; I’ve seen every episode of ‘Freaks and Geeks.’ We need more shows like that.
Stephen Colletti
I like playing basketball and going to the gym. I don’t box, but I’ll ride my bike and go jogging or running in the park. Sometimes my lady and I go hiking.
Kevin Hart
When I got to Mumbai, I missed the Delhi parks and grounds.
Shoojit Sircar
I do a lot of walking around in game parks, rain forests, places like that, but it’s not like I’m camping in them as much as my day walks. I’ve done that all over the world, not like with a backpack on my back living out in the woods for several days. When I travel abroad, it’s more the city that captures my interest.
Henry Rollins
Failure is acceptable. but not trying is a whole different ball park.
Michael Jordan
Child welfare ought really to cover all sorts of topics, such as better water and sanitation and good roads, and clean streets and public parks and playgrounds.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas
I started doing amateur theatre and played Rosa Parks at the age of 12 or 13. At 16, I decided it was what I wanted to do.
Letitia Wright
Thierry Henry could take the ball in the middle of the park and score a goal that no one else in the world could score.
Arsene Wenger
No words will ever describe the exquisite beauty and charm of this mountain park – Nature’s landscape garden at once tenderly beautiful and sublime. No wonder it draws nature-lovers from all over the world.
John Muir
I watched Westerns from the time I was a girl. My dad was a big Western fan. I always loved Clint Eastwood movies and Westworld, where the guy gets trapped in a western-themed amusement park. The western motif was fascinating to me.
Kimberly Elise
I’m just going to try to hit the ball hard. If it’s going out of the park, that’ll be OK.
Hanley Ramirez
I run in Central Park as the sun comes up. Some may mistake it for walking, but I swear I am running. I could not do it without my iPod.
Hoda Kotb
If you take away the predators in the prairies and the national parks, you suddenly have an explosion of elk, and then you have a lack of the food source for the elk, so they strip all the ground bare and that takes away the cover, on and on and on and on. The whole food chain is disrupted.
Peter Benchley
I got involved in Gateway National Park and just became fascinated with gardens.
Alexandra Kerry
For it is my opinion that we enclose and celebrate the freaks of our nation and our civilization. Yellowstone National Park is no more representative of America than is Disneyland.
John Steinbeck
It has always been, and still is, my intention to build a playground in Central Park.
Diana Ross
The two principal parks in Alaska are Denali and Glacier Bay. Tourism is just overriding the protection of resources that tourists want to see. We have too many tourists in Denali and too many big cruise ships in Glacier Bay.
Michael Frome
There’s a big song at the beginning [of Sausage Party], and that was really fun to do. It felt like we were living out a dream of being the South Park guys for a minute.
Evan Goldberg
A society that’s provided for by television is a society that says it doesn’t need too many parks or natural situations for children to play in because television will look after them.
Michael Leunig
Parks said, he’s guilty and that’s the end of the story.
Tommy Bond
Director Park asking that if there was a pocket on one side of the piece of clothing then there should be a pocket on the other side. They were a little uncomfortable to wear, yes, because there were a lot of tight, high-waisted things so it was great at the end of the day to slip into some pajamas!
Mia Wasikowska
Born to an age where horror has become commonplace, where tragedy has, by its monotonous repetition, become a parody of sorrow, we need to fence off a few parks where humans try to be fair, where skill has some hope of reward, where absurdity has a harder time than usual getting a ticket.
Thomas Boswell
106 & Park, Freestyle Friday, that was real pivotal. I feel like he has the right to do that, he comes from that era so he has the right to do that.
A gentleman’s park is my aversion. It is not beauty because it is not nature.
John Constable
I’ve wanted to make a film about French youth since I went to Cannes with my first film ‘Kids’ in 1995 … Scribe’s screenplay is about French kids today, and the world today. Just like my films ‘Kids’ and ‘Ken Park’, this will be a movie like you have never seen before.
Larry Clark
If you thrive on the city energy it is necessary to leave the city frequently and to walk in parks, to get away from people. You are more sensitive than you realize. Find a spot that makes you happy.
Frederick Lenz
I grew up in Dolton, just south of Chicago, about a 20-minute drive from old Comiskey Park.
Richard Roeper
[Rosa Louise] Parks used to say, “Everybody looks at me because I sat down once in Montgomery, but the real hero is a woman named Septima Clark.”She created the Citizenship Schools [where civil-rights activists taught basic literacy and political education classes].
Marian Wright Edelman
No one had to tell me I was never going to be a home run hitter. I was hitting the same ball as the rest of the players, but when the big guys cracked one, it went out of the park. Mine went out of the infield.
Nellie Fox
Connecticut has some of the best parks of any state in the country, and the State Parks system provides numerous opportunities across the state to explore the outdoors.
Ned Lamont
What you think is an illusion created by your glands, your emotions and, in the last analysis, by the content of your stomach. That gray matter you’re so proud of is like a mirror in an amusement park which transmits to you nothing but distorted signals from reality forever beyond your grasp.
Ayn Rand
I would recommend if you come to Ocean Grove and you’re not from around here, don’t wear rubber pants, a pink shirt and a blue jacket. Leave that for Asbury Park.
Peter Noone
Professor von Mises has a splendid analytical mind and an admirable passion for liberty; but as a student of human nature he is worse than null and as a debater he is of Hyde Park standard.
Ludwig von Mises
I can’t get enough of London! I love all the picnic benches, the old-school phone booths and parks in the middle of the city.
Jessica Lowndes
If the national park is, as Lord Bryce suggested, the best idea America has ever had, wilderness preservation is the highest refinement of that idea.
Wallace Stegner
Parks and gardens are the quintessential intimate landscapes. People use them all the time, leaving their energy and memories behind. It’s what’s left behind that I like to photograph.
Michael Kenna
If you let people own their land, they take care of it. That’s why privately owned land is always taken care of, and the parks look like cesspools. Nobody takes care of what everybody owns.
Grover Norquist
With the single exception of Park Lane, every north-south route in London slows traffic to the pace of a wounded gnat with pleurisy struggling with a squaddie’s backpack.
Michael Gove
Life is not a theme park, and if it is, the theme is death.
Russell Brand
Nobody likes the ball low and away, but that’s where you’re going to get it from me. I been pitching it there 50 years, away from them. That way they can’t hurt you. You keep the ball in the park.
Satchel Paige
If Willie Nelson had been Rosa Parks, there never would have been a civil rights movement in this country, because he refuses to leave the back of the bus.
Kinky Friedman
There were three Selma-to-Montgomery marches in March 1965, and Rosa Parks had missed the first one. Parks, whose act of civil disobedience sparked the Montgomery bus boycott in 1955, moved to Detroit two years later for safety reasons.
Douglas Brinkley
The park grass looked greener, the park benches looked better and the flowers were trying harder.
Charles Bukowski
Rosa Parks was a woman of strength, conviction, and morality. Her action on December 1, 1955, to defy the law made her a leading figure in our nation’s civil rights history.
John Shimkus
The shopping centres that have come up in Noida are amazing. There are amusement parks and other good family outing spots.
There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed.
Ted Nugent
That’s where you just have to get creative. There are all these trampoline parks and there’s bowling and there’s roller skating.
Michelle Obama
I had a few DJs in my neighbourhood that would play music in the streets. There was no hip-hop yet; there were just DJs that were playing disco, funk, and pop music, and we would gather round, go to the parks, and dance and enjoy ourselves.
There is no good scientific reason to bring back an extinct species.В  Why would one bring them back?В  To put them in a theme park?
Hendrik Poinar
Whatever you say about Fergus McCann, if this [Celtic Park] is the legacy, then I am absolutely delighted with it.
Martin O’Neill
The only thing I like about St. Louis is it has the best zoo in America, in Forest Park. Washington University is next door to the zoo. Animals get out, they’re going to eat white people before they get to the ghetto!
Dick Gregory
When you have something as unique and special as the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise, you want to create an experience for the fans that they can only feel and experience at Universal Parks.
Dwayne Johnson
I’m launching my own festival in South Wales. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It’s going to be held at Margam Park, because I wanted the venue to be as close to my home as possible.
Katherine Jenkins
I think that every town should have a park, or rather a primitive forest, of five hundred or a thousand acres, either in one body or several, where a stick would never be cut for fuel, not for the navy, not to make wagons, but stand and decay for higher uses – a common possession for instruction and recreation.
Henry David Thoreau
I studied in Britain and spent great moments of my life there as a student living in Belsize Park. I admire the British trait of the stiff upper lip in the face of adversity. My wife studied in Britain too and both of us have many friends there.
Asif Ali Zardari
Summer is the sweet spot of the movie-going season — and it’s also peak season for Six Flags theme parks.
Mark Shapiro
When I am walking in Central Park, I recognize the Italians. Because an Italian, even when he jogs, he’s dressed perfect.
Diego Della Valle
I hope the fans have enjoyed listening as much as I’ve enjoyed doing the games. I don’t ever go to the park where I don’t have a good day. I don’t like losing. But I don’t think I ever go to the park where I have a bad day. I don’t think once.
Bob Uecker
I always loved the way music made me feel. I did sports at school and all, but when I got home, it was just music. Everybody in my neighborhood loved music. I could jump the back fence and be in the park where there were ghetto blasters everywhere.
Dr. Dre
I remember the first time I drove mum’s car. We just went to a car park near my house, and it actually wasn’t too bad. I felt quite confident straight away.
Melissa Breen
I’ve got some of my best yarns from park benches, lamp posts and newspaper stands.
O. Henry
I do feel more myself in America. I can regress there, and they have roller-coaster parks.
Alan Rickman
Give the park police more ammo.
Newt Gingrich
It was a laugh that came from the tip of his toes, gaining force and soul as it traveled through his body and out into the world in mirthful bursts. There wasn’t anything fake about it; it was an amusement park of a laugh, and when it appeared, you wanted to jump on board.
David Levithan
In Yellowstone National Park there are more ‘do not feed the animals’ signs than there are animals you might wish to feed.
Natalie Jeremijenko
I’d like to see the first act of Sunday in the Park with George, and the second act of Hamilton. Every day.
Nikka Graff Lanzarone
The cast of ‘Parks & Rec’ is just a group of unbelievably nice, humble, down to earth, hilarious friends.
Rob Lowe
I like English parks.
Jean Nouvel
I love New York City. The energy, the theatre, the art, the food, the people, the parks and streets. But I could say the same of London or Paris, too.
Pierce Brosnan
We live in God’s amusement park.
Dean Koontz
Working on ‘Parks’ was like heaven because everyone there was just intimidatingly intelligent and funny, and we would have these hilarious debates about really tangential things. It was inspiring because I felt really challenged to be my best.
Chelsea Peretti
I’m not method or anything like that, but sometimes you get the scenes and you’re like ‘Really, Damon [Lindelof]? More of this? Can I have one scene where it’s a walk in the park?’ But he doesn’t do that. He puts every character through their paces.
Justin Theroux
Nick spent his first years on walks in his stroller and Snugli, playing in Berkeley parks and baby gyms and visiting zoos and aquariums. His mother and I divorced when he was 4. No child benefits from the bitterness and savagery of a divorce like ours.
David Sheff
I’m your knight in shining armor. I’m here to save you from Linkin Park.
Rufus Wainwright
A bomb under the West car park at Twickenham on an international day would end fascism in England for a generation.
Philip Toynbee
This new baseball is like a golf ball. I think there are going to be a lot more dents put in the wall at Fenway Park this year.
Don Zimmer
Saving the world via medical research or going off to Gobi Desert to dust off dinosaur eggs is what I thought I might be doing when I was a kid, and Id love to bring those interests to a show like E.R. or The West Wing, or a movie like Jurassic Park.
Morgan Fairchild
There’s a reason Tony Stark makes fun of ‘Thor,’ and mentions ‘Shakespeare’ in the park in ‘The Avengers.’ It’s great to play high drama and comedy alongside a modern story.
Joss Whedon
I think a lot of other shows cast off of people’s reels, and I think every one of those people came in, auditioned for those parts, and knocked it out of the park, and I thought they did an outstanding job in the course of the season.
Aaron Korsh
I had a sense that my mother was struggling, when I was a kid, working twelve hour days, making $12,000 a year with two kids in a trailer park.
Cecily McMillan
This is how a revolution begins. It begins when someone grows tired of standing idly by, waiting for history’s arc to bend toward justice, and instead decides to give it a swift shove. It begins when a black seamstress named Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat on a bus to a white man in the segregated South.
Jo Becker
The label of liberalism is hardly a sentence to public ignominy: otherwise Bruce Springsteen would still be rehabilitating used Cadillacs in Asbury Park and Jane Fonda, for all we know, would be just another overweight housewife.
Barbara Ehrenreich
In Paris, one is always reminded of being a foreigner. If you park your car wrong, it is not the fact that it’s on the sidewalk that matters, but the fact that you speak with an accent.
Roman Polanski
That sounds really simplistic, but if I’m in an enclosed space, or my apartment, and I live very close to a park – there’s something about being outside and being near things that are green.
Ingrid Michaelson
And what could be a hotter ticket than the improbable triumph of ‘The Book of Mormon,’ the musical-comedy moon shot of the season? Its creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, of Comedy Central’s ‘South Park,’ are the most unlikely Rodgers and Hammerstein team ever to bowl a thundering strike.
James Wolcott
We need to protect our wilderness areas and national parks. Everywhere you travel, you see blight, denuded mountains, logging. If people know what’s going on, they’ll become activists to safeguard those places.
Christie Brinkley
Is Coors Field a good park to hit in? Yeah. So are Wrigley Field and Camden Yards. I didn’t design Coors Field-I just play there.
Todd Helton
I recently went for a walk in a state park and found that some of my favorite trees had collapsed. It makes me feel vulnerable, personally and for my children.
Laura Regan
The trouble with addiction is that you can park the car but you can never switch off the engine or stop yourself from hearing the revs.
Simon Pegg
I was accustomed to being in far, far riskier environments. So I thought going into that canyon was a walk in the park – there were no avalanches, it was a beautiful day and I was essentially just walking.
Aron Ralston
People think I’m more wild than I am… I like going to theme parks, play sports or just hanging out with my friends.
Iggy Azalea
I look forward to an America which will not be afraid of grace and beauty, which will protect the beauty of our natural environment, which will preserve the great old American houses and squares and parks of our national past and which will build handsome and balanced cities for our future.
John F. Kennedy
We do a lot of bird-watching up in the country, but we almost never have a chance to people-watch. There simply aren’t enough human beings up here: there is nowhere you can park yourself with a cup of coffee and observe the species on parade.
Susan Orlean
Everything we do is escapism, because we’ll all be dead and everything we do is completely meaningless. Why brush your teeth? Why not be in the park with the bums passing a short dog? Why pay taxes, why get educated? Of course literature is an escape. You have to fill the hours.
T.C. Boyle
Kids at skate parks will step up and challenge me to a game of Skate, but I’m over that, I really don’t care. I’m all about participating, and I’m all about being a part of this scene, but there’s certain vibes I just don’t get along with.
Mike Vallely
I like to get into a lot of things besides movies. I’ve been very involved with a few specific efforts. We built this park in New York and it’s been a very successful project… I worked on a conservation project in East Africa… Too much of this type of stuff can get you wrapped up in your own work and I love it.
Edward Norton
Me myself I park in handicap, the reason why… ya know my bankroll make me walk with a crazy limp.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
All our institutions rest upon business. Without it we should not have schools, colleges, churches, parks, playgrounds, pavements, books, libraries, art, music, or anything else that we value.
Charles Gates, Jr.
Our country’s growing obsession with organized sports isn’t just hurting our children, but also our communities. As play is siphoned off to gyms and fields, fewer kids are playing in our streets, parks, and playgrounds.
Darell Hammond
Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Gandhi — all these peopled described themselves as quiet and soft-spoken and even shy. And they all took the spotlight, even though every bone in their bodies was telling them not to.
Susan Cain
Let me keep it 100% real with you, when there was park jams nobody rapped at a park jam when I was rapping and that’s a fact. You can ask anybody don’t just take my word for it do your research cuz it seems everyone wants to make themselves bigger than what they are.
Okay, you’re right about that. But this whole ghost thing’s irritating.” “Park benches are irritating to you in some moods.” “Depends on whether or not I want to sit down.
Nora Roberts
I particularly like the bookshops at National Parks and battlefields; they often have very unusual and helpful things.
Diana Gabaldon
Ball parks are smaller and baseballs are livelier. They’ve practically got pitchers wearing straitjackets. Bah! They still allow the knuckleball, and that is three times as hard to control.
Ed Walsh
Borrow a child and get on welfare.
Borrow a child and stay in the house all day with the child,
or go to the public park with the child, and take the child
to the welfare office and cry and say your man left you and
be humble and wear your dress and your smile, and don’t talk
Susan Griffin
I’ve loved car racing all my life. I watch NASCAR regularly, and drag racing because we have Raceway Park in New Jersey. I think I got it from my father.
Queen Latifah
When I think of nu-metal, I think of Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot and even Chevelle – those types of bands.
Austin Carlile
I got to Africa. I got the opportunity to go and learn, not about any animal, but chimpanzees. I was living in my dream world, the forest in Gombe National Park in Tanzania. It was Tanganyika when I began.
Jane Goodall
This is real human drama, we’re not creating some amusement park ride for the summer. Even though the movie is really exciting to watch, it’s got a real pathos behind it.
John C. Reilly
I travel for theme parks.
Chad Gilbert
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued reams of playground regulations and actually gone so far as to recommend against “tripping hazards, like tree stumps and rocks.” Maybe we should just bulldoze the local parks and put in a couple of blobs… made of plastic.
Lenore Skenazy
When I was about fifteen, I went to work at Yosemite National Park. It changed me forever. Nature had carved its own sculpture, and I was part of it, not the other way around.
Robert Redford
I love Central Park. I spend a lot of time in there. I try and get in there whenever I can.
Lili Taylor
Remember, if you don’t have a goal you’re not playing football, you’re just kicking a ball around the park.
Geoff Thompson
I haven’t been to Tasmania. I haven’t been to the South Pole, and I haven’t been to the North Pole. I want to see the polar bear migration before there are no polar bears. I want to see Glacier National Park before the glacier melts.
Martha Stewart
The argument about marriage equality will one day seem as arcane and shocking to us as the fact that Rosa Parks had to get up and go to the back of the bus.
Uma Thurman
Things she knew now, that she hadn’t known two hours ago: Park was covered with skin. Everywhere.
Rainbow Rowell
These parks are our life’s work, not the clothing chains we created, selling people clothes they don’t need.
Douglas Tompkins
When we played at Celtic Park for Bayern in the Champions League it was unbelievable and I think all our players said the same thing afterwards. The atmosphere was just totally unique. I’ve played in lots of big games and stadiums but I’ve never witnessed fans making that much noise in 90 minutes.
Owen Hargreaves
Television was supposed to be a national park. (Instead) it has become a money machine… It’s a commodity now, just like pork bellies.
Fred W. Friendly
Although biodiversity loss continues globally, many countries are significantly slowing the rate of loss by shoring up protected natural areas and the services they provide, and in expanding national park systems with tighter management and more secure funding.
Helen Clark
This is a good way to do it (saying goodbye to Victoria Park). What a perfect way to end the Millennium. The last football home and away match of the Millennium will be at Victoria Park, and in the new Millennium we’ll have fantastic facilities, a new approach, a new attitude.
Eddie McGuire
It’s very likely that graduates, current employees and retirees have some wonderful pieces of Deer Park history in their closets or garages.
Matt Lucas
Good luck finding a place to park in New York City. And when you do, good luck figuring out the parking signs, restrictions, and prohibitions. It is so complicated. It has gotten so bad, I never park my car without a lawyer.
David Letterman
I hung out with all the guys in my neighborhood when I was little… I would, like, skateboard and go to skate parks, like, every day and do motor cross, like, every weekend, and I was kind of one of those girls.
Daniella Monet
I’ve been told my old city possesses a ‘thriving arts scene,’ whatever that is; personally, I think artists should lie low and stick to their work, not line-dance through the parks.
Walter Kirn
I’ve been riding the carousel in Central Park since I was five years old. If I’m very depressed or if something’s bothering me today, my husband, Larry, and I go back to the park. We get on the carousel horse and we start riding, and I start singing at the top of my lungs. It is pure and absolute joy and happiness.
Eda LeShan
Park hill staten island seal, rock the reel to reel we high hills deep
Writing a novel is like an amusement park or a museum or a city. You go into that place and you have certain experiences and those experiences, hopefully, have some impact on you.
Mohsin Hamid
I learned the power of radio watching Eleanor Roosevelt do her show. I used to go up to Hyde Park and hold her papers. I was just a messenger, but it planted the bug of radio in me.
Allen Funt
The national park is the best idea America ever had.
James Bryce
Madrid is enjoyed most from the ground, exploring your way through its narrow streets that always lead to some intriguing park, market, tapas bar or street performer. Each night we’d leave our hotel to begin a new adventure in Madrid and nine out of 10 times, we’d walk through the Plaza Mayor.
Emilio Estevez
Be sure to lay wide streets planted with shady trees, every other of a quick-growing variety. Be sure that there is plenty of space for lawns and gardens, reserved large areas for football, hockey and parks. Earmark areas for Hindu temples, Mohammedan mosques and Christian churches.
Jamsetji Tata
Reunion’s ace card is its interior, its natural parks. Its volcanic origins have defined an extraordinary landscape, characterised by high peaks, deep canyons, lush ravines and vast plains, which are ideal for trekking, cycling and water rafting.
Carol Drinkwater
The new French theme park based on Napoleon is named Napoleon’s Bivouac, and will honor Napoleon with rides, battle reenactments, and the brutal March on Moscow ride. That’s a walk-in freezer you stand in for 18 months while you try to eat a dead horse.
Peter Sagal
Rosa Parks was primed, she had the Civil Rights Movement behind her, she didn’t just decide to sit on the bus, it was strategic.
Aisha Hinds
The Four Horsemen were limousines and Lear Jets, while DX was trailer parks and outhouses. One was white trash, one was upper crust. I always saw DX and the NWO as the natural rivals at the time.
Shawn Michaels
At Current, television is all we do – that’s our business. We don’t have amusement parks I have to worry about, we don’t have environmental cases against us, we don’t have a series of outdoor-advertising companies.
Keith Olbermann
I live about four muggings from Central Park.
Henny Youngman
Charlottesville is a quiet town with friendly people, good schools, lots of churches, parks, and a bustling, growing community that more or less revolves around one of the country’s great public universities. Volunteerism is rampant, and dozens of nonprofits hustle about, solving problems and helping those in need.
John Grisham
As I lounged in the Park, or strolled down Piccadilly, I used to look at everyone who passed me, and wonder, with mad curiosity, what sort of lives they led. some of them fascinated me. Others filled me with terror.
Oscar Wilde
I had a friend who got pregnant at age 14 and wasn’t quite sure who the father was.
Her paternity test went a little something like this: “If it comes out black, its Darwin’s and if it comes out white its Ray’s.”
This is how things were done in the trailer park.
Kate Madison
Parks are works of art just as a painting or sculpture is.
Thomas Hoving
Behind every great amusement park is a great fan site.
Walt Disney
I would give ten years off the beginning of my life to see, only once, Tyrannosaurus rex come rearing up from the elms of Central Park, a Morgan police horse screaming in its jaws. We can never have enough of nature.
Edward Abbey
When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing – just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?
Ralph Marston
I love the South Park guys, Trey Parker and Matt Stone. They’re geniuses. I throw that word around a lot, but I really do mean it.
Brent Spiner
The newly decorated theatres produced things like car parks and restaurants, so you could have a good night out, quite cheaply without all that bother of having to go somewhere else.
Timothy West
Ex-D-boy, used to park my Beamer
Now look at me, I can park in my own arena
As strenuous challenge or contemplative retreat, the parks and other units of the national lands offer welcome respite from the world, a safety valve for body and spirit.
T. H. Watkins
I want to go to the park. (Livia) Why? (Adron) Because, and I know this is a new concept for you, we might actually have fun. Can you imagine? You might even smile and the world could come to an end over it. (Livia)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
He’s (Willie Stargell) such a big strong guy he should love that porch. He’s got power enough to hit home runs in any park, including Yellowstone.
Sparky Anderson
I sponsored every team in the Park Slope Little League for years.I sponsor two soccer teams in England, one of which is called Broadley F.C. A kid wrote to me through Facebook because they started a team in honor of their friend who died of leukemia, and he played in the band of this very obscure team in England.
Adam Richman
A role like I had on ‘Parks and Rec,’ to me, is very easy to understand, and that’s something that I can do with my eyes closed.
John Cena
We got kind of into a rhythm at ‘Parks’ because there were so many characters that we had an A story, a B story, and a C story just about every episode. So by the middle of that show’s run, we always had three stories, and it worked really well.
Alan Yang
We cleared all traces of our occupation out of M6 and moved to M7, and it’s been quite smooth over there. We chose a place all the way at the end of an industrial park.
Adam Savage
All the Chicago demonstrators wanted to do was to sleep in the park and kick policemen with razor blades in their shoes.
Spiro T. Agnew
I hate small towns because once you’ve seen the cannon in the park there’s nothing else to do.
Lenny Bruce
In our benighted age, when films about amusement park rides and electronic fidgets scoop the honours, perhaps Hollywood redux is the best we can hope for.
Will Self
Mrs. Parks was a shy, soft spoken woman who was uncomfortable being revered as a symbol of the civil rights movement. She only hoped to inspire young people to achieve great things.
Jim Costa
Based on the experience of my life, which I have not exactly hit out of the park, I tend to agree with that thing about, If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. And would go even further to: Even if it is broke, leave it alone, you’ll probably make it worse.
George Saunders
Nira Park, who is my longtime producer and friend – I’ve know her since we did Spaced, the TV show – she gave me this script the last day of filming The World’s End. She said, “Take a look at this. It’s filming in London next year, and you might like to look at Jack.” I trust Nira implicitly.
Simon Pegg
Race and class are extremely reliable indicators as to where one might find the good stuff, like parks and trees, and where one might find the bad stuff, like power plants and waste facilities.
Majora Carter
Your honor, why would anyone in their right mind park in the passing lane?
Steven Wright
I live in Tuxedo Park, N.Y. and spend time in the West Village, where my wife Elizabeth Cotnoir, a writer-producer and documentary filmmaker, has an office.
Howard Shore
So why you pushin’ it? Why you lyin’ for? I know where you live,
I know your folks, you was a sucka as a kid.
Your persona’s drama that you acquired in high school in actin’ class,
Your whole aura is plexiglass.
What’s-her-face told me you shot this kid last week in the park;
That’s a lie, you was in church with your moms.
Madrid is a big and beautiful city with great parks where I like to walk. There are a lot of squares and museums, historic monuments. But I’m more a home guy; I feel most comfortable there with my wife and kids. We play, watch cartoons, like all families do.
Luka Modric
Whenever he looks at me with those big brown eyes, I feel like giving him a nut,” she said. She even started calling the squirrels running around in the park Mr. Whitmans.
Kerstin Gier
Trey Parker did ‘Book of Mormon.’ It’s the best Broadway show I’ve ever seen. He does ‘South Park.’ It’s wonderful.
Penn Jillette
Today, we must realize that nature is revealed in the simplest meadow, wood lot, marsh, stream, or tidepool, as well as in the remote grandeur of our parks and wilderness areas.
Ansel Adams
I’m not Hans Christian Andersen. Nobody’s gonna make a statue in the park with a lot of scrambling kids climbing up me. I won’t have it, okay?
Maurice Sendak
People look at me like I should have been like Malcolm X or Martin Luther King or Rosa Parks. I should have seen life like that and stay out of trouble, and don’t do this and don’t do that. But it’s hard to live up to some people’s expectations.
Rodney King
The Park Avenue of poodles and polished brass; it is cab country, tip-town, glassville, a window-washer’s paradise.
Gay Talese
Ji-Sung Park is probably not as young as he was when he arrived at Old Trafford all those years ago.
Ray Houghton
I think anything that gets people outside [is good] – I’m a big supporter of public parks and public spaces.
Anne Waldman
I’m like a rock singer with one-night stands on the road. I’m here for two days in New York; I leave in the morning early. I come back for Anna Wintour’s party at the Met, then again at the end of May for a prize I get from the Gordon Parks Foundation.
Karl Lagerfeld
Mrs. Parks’ act of brave defiance rocked the foundation of American society and inspired generations of civil rights leaders and created a sense of hope for every American facing legal discrimination in this country.
Kendrick Meek
My favorite place is Central Park because you never know what you’re going to find there. I also like that when I look out the windows of surrounding hotels, it’s seems like I’m looking out over a forest.
Haley Joel Osment
Since graveyards are often built over older burial grounds, I assume Dolores Park was probably an Indian, (an Ohlone) graveyard before that. I think the fact that it has so many layers underneath the contemporary one intrigues me.
Stephen Vincent Benet
I love watching Hollywood movies – I just don’t know if I’d be happy doing a Jurassic Park.
Frances O’Connor
The Florida State League was considered the top A-league back then. You played in the spring training parks of major league teams, traveled throughout some great cities in Florida, and the pay was the best in A-ball.
Jim Evans
You’ve got 3 minutes to tell the world something. Are you going to talk to them about being wasted in your front yard because you couldn’t park your car, or are you going to talk to someone about something that could actually help them?
Isaac Slade
Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.
George Carlin
In St. Louis, some people were hurt seriously when some fans got on top of a roof that was where other fans were underneath it, at a park somewhere, and it collapsed.
Phil Lesh
Space Mountain may be the oldest ride in the park, but it has the longest line.
Ric Flair
It came to me that Hyde Park has never belonged to London – that it has always been , in spirit, a stretch of countryside; and that it links the Londons of all periods together most magically – by remaining forever unchanged at the heart of a ever-changing town.
Dodie Smith
Oh, a lion hunter in the jungle dark, And a sleeping drunkard up in central park, and a Chinese dentist and a British queen All fit together in the same machine. Nice, nice, such very different people in the same device!
Kurt Vonnegut
When it’s your chance to step up to the plate, just hit it out of the park, and everybody will forget about everything that came before.
Brian McKnight
Nature surrounds us, from parks and backyards to streets and alleyways. Next time you go out for a walk, tread gently and remember that we are both inhabitants and stewards of nature in our neighbourhoods.
David Suzuki
Australia is an island surrounded by water. My fondest memories growing up were trips to the beach, walking around the harbour and playing in the beautiful parks.
Tammin Sursok
The courtroom is a quiet place, Judge Roberts, where you park your political ideology, and you call the balls and you call the strikes.
Lindsey Graham
People don’t realize all the stuff I gave up growing up. I could have gone to parties and had fun at adventure parks with friends on weekends and things like that. But I went out and worked my butt off for eight hours playing golf.
Bryson DeChambeau
I can’t go anywhere without being bugged by somebody. I’d love to just hike out down the street, or drop in a restaurant, or wander in the park, or take my kids somewhere without collecting a trail of people. But I can’t.
Johnny Carson
There are too many people coming to parks doing the wrong things. They treat the parks like popcorn playgrounds. They don’t understand what the national parks mean.
Michael Frome
I didn’t come from a trailer park. I grew up middle class and my dad had money and my mom made my lunch. I got a car when I was sixteen. I’m proud of that.
Kid Rock
I believe the National Park Service has demonstrated strong partnerships geared towards respecting the private property of citizens in its administering of the current Trail of Tears National Historic Trail and will continue to do so upon the addition of the routes.
Zach Wamp
Parking is a nightmare for me… I still have sensors on my car that help me park.
Jordana Brewster
I like to be scared. I don’t like feeling like “Oh, this is going to be a walk in the park”. If I ever get to that place, I’ll just stop acting.
Taraji P. Henson
I was trying to control myself because I wanted to just park the car and jump out and do cartwheels. The next dream is to win the world championship.
Lewis Hamilton
Why is it illegal to park in a handicapped parking space but okay to go the bathroom in a handicapped stall?
Jerry Seinfeld
I don’t see any justification for the federal government owning land, other than the Statue of Liberty and maybe a few parks, maybe a few refuges. But to just own land to do nothing with it I think is a disservice to the Constitution.
Don Young
I think power will do anything to survive and one of its main techniques is the rule of exceptions. So it makes an exception out of people and we worship them, whether that’s Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King or Rosa Parks. These people become beatified beyond recognition.
Jess Phillips
I doubt if any of them would even intentionally double-park.
Richard M. Nixon
I worked at this place called Water World; it was a waterslide park. My brother and my dad framed my first paycheck from this place – which was for $0.00 dollars – because I didn’t even make enough to cover the cost of my uniform!
Summer Sanders
Rosa Parks wasn’t the first one to rebel against the segregated seats. I was the first one.
Claudette Colvin
That’s what I grew up loving. Whether it’s 30 Rock or The Office or Parks And Rec… I don’t know if those still work on network today or not, but The Grinder did not. But the great news is that it lives on on Netflix.
Rob Lowe
Ages ago, my girlfriend had this little park near her house, with a bridge running over a stream and I set up all these candles on the bridge. But when I called her and told her she said it was too dark and she wasn’t coming out.
Harry Styles
When I was 15 years old in 1955, I heard of Rosa Parks. I heard the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. on our radio.
John Lewis
I’ve been through legislation creating a dozen national parks, and there’s always the same pattern. When you first propose a park, and you visit the area and present the case to the local people, they threaten to hang you. You go back in five years and they think it’s the greatest thing that ever happened.
Mo Udall
I think I’ve only done one horror movie, Psycho III. That was a walk in the park compared to a romantic comedy.
Carter Burwell
Both conservatives and liberals watch ‘Parks and Recreation,’ and they each think the show is for them, which is really cool. ‘SNL’ was totally different. It was exciting because everyone was paying attention. Political humor works when people know what you’re talking about.
Amy Poehler
All you have to do is drive by the empty tennis courts and basketball courts and compare them to the skate parks… c’mon people, get with the program – the future is now!
Jeff Ament
When the Korean economy was just trying to get back on its feet after the war, having parks was a luxury
Lee Myung-bak
I said to myself, ‘What show could I be on that makes sense?’ And with ‘Parks and Rec’ being in Pawnee, like a fictitious city in Indiana, I said ‘that really makes sense.’
Roy Hibbert
I miss driving to Goodison Park. I miss just the positive energy of the fans walking into the stadium and how much they care about that club and the team. And I miss the players a lot.
Landon Donovan
All of which is mostly bullshit. The reality is that it’s just like any other Ponzi scheme: the guys at the top are doing pretty well, but the guys on the bottom are doing Amway pitches in trailer parks.
Tod Goldberg
I was always the last one chosen for football games in Central Park.
Merlin Olsen
On a park bench on 12th street, my whole crew’s famous, you try bust your gat and keep it rel but you nameless
The unsaid rule for living in a trailer park is: ‘If the door’s shut, don’t come a-knockin.’ But if it’s open and you’re walkin’ by, feel free to say, ‘Hello.’
Matthew McConaughey
I worked for the recreation and parks department for a year.
Lee Majors
However useful may be the National Parks and Forests of the West for those affording the Pullman fare to reach them, what is needed by the bulk of the American population is something nearer home.
Benton MacKaye
Television is not the truth! Television is a goddamned amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a travelling troupe of acrobats and story-tellers, singers and dancers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion-tamers and football players. We’re in the boredom-killing business!
Paddy Chayefsky
In the traditional modernist planning that created the suburbs, you put residential buildings in suburban neighborhoods, office spaces into brain parks and retail in shopping malls. But you fail to exploit the possibility of symbiosis or synthesis that way.
Bjarke Ingels
Another example of that was that even during the economic problems of the 1945 government, we managed to carry out other aspects of our policy and other ideals. Through the establishment of national parks, for instance.
Barbara Castle
It’s funny because I think a lot of it is simply… We’ve never considered ourselves satirists, but because we’re on Comedy Central and because we’re South Park on Comedy Central, we can do any topic we want.
Trey Parker
I’ve searched all the parks in all the cities and found no statues of committees.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The byproduct of the main thrust to protect the biodiversity of a given place is that you get especially young people out to the parks, because it will be future generations that will have to value these landscapes and these ecosystems and make sure that nobody is changing the law.
Douglas Tompkins
It is our duty to preserve huge tracts of land in something resembling its native condition. The biological interactions necessary to insure the continuities of life are astonishingly complex, and cannot take place in islands of semiwilderness like the national parks.
William Kittredge
I spent ten years playing classical piano, and that was what led to keyboards and eventually to production and to Linkin Park.
Mike Shinoda
Then I lost him for a brief period of time, and by the time I caught up with him, he had wandered into Hyde Park, waded into the Serpetine, spread his arms wide, and was shouting, ‘Ducks, embrace me as your king!
Cassandra Clare
Seeing family is what brings me peace. If I’m not traveling home on my day off, I love going to Central Park to be around trees and throw a Frisbee with my boyfriend.
Kara Lindsay
The concert industry lags dramatically behind the great hospitality businesses out there, whether they’re theme parks or hotels or sporting events.
Michael Rapino
The museums and parks are graveyards above the ground- congealed memories of the past that act as a pretext for reality.
Robert Smithson
Rosa Parks’ courage, determination, and tenacity continue to be an inspiration to all those committed to non-violent protest and change nearly half a century later.
Bob Filner
What are we out at the park for except to win?
Leo Durocher
Cryptography [without system integrity] is like investing in an armored car to carry money between a customer living in a cardboard box and a person doing business on a park bench.
Gene Spafford
There’s constant drama, and I’m busy, busy, but at the center of the madness is the desire to write, the need to write. That desire, that need, is as palpable and relentless as any junkie’s craving, and will possess me all day until I can park myself in a chair and do my work.
Jillian Medoff
I grew up on the edge of a national park in Canada – timberwolves, creeks, snow drifts.
Dan Aykroyd
My idea of an amusement park story is getting adventurers to go tour environmental disaster areas. After all, if the entire Great Barrier Reef gets killed, which seems like an extremely lively possibility, what are you going to do with all that rotting limestone?
Bruce Sterling
Snowboarding! I love it! Some of the best places to snowboard are Telluride and Park Cities, Utah.
Bridget Hall
I’m kinda disapointed that Canada isn’t like the South Park movie said it was.
Joel Madden
Big cities are chaotic. And chaos for humans – who have experience from their ancestors – is the last step before conflict. So, in the park, every kind of visual contradiction has been eliminated.
John Hench
I know so few people who actually give music their undivided attention, so I’ve been trying to just park myself on the couch between the speakers and listen.
Cliff Martinez
To me, watching a movie is like going to an amusement park. My worst fear is making a film that people don’t think is a good ride.
Darren Aronofsky
Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us. We need hours of aimless wandering or spates of time sitting on park benches, observing the mysterious world of ants and the canopy of treetops.
Maya Angelou
In my 31 years in Congress, I have seen a lot of changes. We made some substantial policy changes that have improved our parks system and our public lands.
Ralph Regula
And for all of you at home, you are all welcome to visit my store. You are also welcome to park off you motherparking parks, and go park yourself. But remember, don’t park in a handicapped spot.
Carlos Mencia
Growing up, we visited Devon and Cornwall where I learnt to surf and had my first horse riding lesson. We stayed in caravan parks and I have fond memories of Paignton and Newquay.
Paul Young
The Giants were a good team, but our biggest enemy was said to be Candlestick Park.
Willie Stargell
A president can be unpopular for good reasons. You know, I’m not always on the side that the people are right, for God’s sake. But, you know, he’s not popular when he goes overseas. He couldn’t go to Rosa Parks’ funeral.
Bill Maher
I’ve always had a way with a gun. As a kid, I loved to fire them at the shooting range in amusement parks. I’d always return home with a handful of prizes.
Olga Kurylenko
If Rosa Parks had not refused to move to the back of the bus, you and I might never have heard of Dr. Martin Luther King.
Ramsey Clark
I’ve gotten to visit all the parks and put my name inside the Fenway wall.
Max Scherzer
You might be a redneck if you wish your outhouse was as nice as those at the state park.
Jeff Foxworthy
I was born in Paris, and it’s a beautiful place, but London feels like home. I like the village feeling, I like running in the parks – even the food isn’t as bad as it used to be.
Eva Green
The truth be told, the World Trade Center was neither a very good work of architecture nor a very successful piece of urbanism. Its shortcomings were somewhat mitigated by the westward and southward expansion of the World Financial Center and Battery Park City during the 1980s.
Martin Filler
To be denied was like getting shut out of a Public Park.
J.R. Ward
When I’m 70 I might be a man in a park just wandering around, speaking in tongues with kids throwing bread at me.
Noel Fielding
Lots of people think things would be better some other way. That’s why the world’s lousy with theme parks.
Nora Roberts
Such an assemblage of the spraddle-legged men of the middle class, whose hands were bent and shoulders stooped from delving and constructing, had never appeared to an Asbury Park summer crowd, and the latter was vaguely amused.
Stephen Crane
Also, I walk and hike in several different nearby parks near our home several early mornings a week.
Malcolm Boyd
I got that nickname my first spring training camp with the Expos in 1974. Tim Foli, Ken Singleton and Mike Jorgensen started calling me ‘Kid’ because I was trying to win every sprint. I was trying to hit every pitch out of the park.
Gary Carter
After a year, it was great to get out of L.A. and return to Hyde Park. Since my grandparents lived in Hyde Park, I had been coming there since I was a tyke.
Bonnie Jo Campbell
I grew up in a trailer park in Bellingham, Washington.
Hilary Swank
When I started on Disneyland, my wife used to say, “But why do you want to build an amusement park? They’re so dirty.” I told her that was just the point – mine wouldn’t be.
Walt Disney
Arise Evans had a fungous nose, and said, it was revealed to him, that the King’s hand would cure him, and at the first coming of King Charles II into St. James’s Park, he kissed the King’s hand, and rubbed his nose with it; which disturbed the King, but cured him.
John Aubrey
We want to make certain that every American who stood in silent tribute to Rosa Parks hopes that the Sepreme Court Judge will break silence and speak out clearly for the civil rights that define our unity as a nation.
Dick Durbin
If you have too many quotes from other people in your head, you can’t create. You have to keep your head empty. That’s why I am constantly enjoying the sky, the park, the walk.
Yoko Ono
The allegations of me being a pedophile are spurious, at best. However I will admit that taking my knickers off in the park and having an Easter Egg hunt with those apple-cheeked four year olds was in my best interest and not theirs
Thom Yorke
There’ll be two buses leaving the hotel for the park tomorrow. The 2:00 bus will be for those of you who need a little extra work. The empty bus will leave at 5:00.
Dave Bristol
I’m a huge South Park fan, loved Avenue Q and can not wait to work with Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Bobby Lopez and Casey Nicholaw. Elder Price is an amazing role and I am so excited to take The Book of Mormon across the country.
Gavin Creel
I still play hockey every now and then, and I still golf. But my biggest exercise is walking my big dog in the park every day.
Michael J. Fox
I think the people will – who advocate having a step back and read those public opinion polls on the front page of the newspapers all over this country saying public supports restoration in restoration of the Everglades, protection of the parks and the creation of monuments.
Bruce Babbitt
The only time I have a good hunch the audience is going to be there is when I make the sequel to ‘Jurassic Park’ or I make another Indiana Jones movie. I know I’ve got a good shot at getting an audience on opening night. Everything else that is striking out into new territory is a crap shoot.
Steven Spielberg
The kiss became the narrowed center of the still point of the turning world, so that even the park was turning in comparison to the still peace at their lips.
Patricia Highsmith
It is up to us, to everyone at Celtic Park, to build up our own legends. We don’t want to live with history, to be compared with legends from the past. We must make new legends.
Jock Stein
Promiscuous reading is necessary to the constituting of human nature. The attempt to keep out evil doctrine by licensing is like the exploit of that gallant man who thought to keep out the crows by shutting the park gate.
John Milton
Don’t park… Arrival is the death of inspiration.
Ernst Haas
Richard Price, who has made a fortune writing fake ghetto books, says he takes a cab into the ghetto, transcribes Black speech for a brief time and returns home. His fake ghetto books have bought him a townhouse in Gramercy Park and home on Staten Island.
Ishmael Reed
We don’t play golf often [with kids] because they don’t play that much anymore – because their kids don’t play. It’s like anything else – fathers these days end up in the parks on the weekends and they have their kids into lacrosse or soccer or whatever it might be.
Jack Nicklaus
Lula had Eminem cranked up. He was rapping about trailer park girls and how they go round the outside, and I was wondering what the heck that meant. I’m a white girl from Trenton. I don’t know these things. I need a rap cheat sheet.
Janet Evanovich
What if Park realized that all the things he thought were so mysterious and intriguing about her were actually just … bleak?
Rainbow Rowell
Forget all the bars and schmoozing and everybody checking out everybody else. My ideal date would be to park in a dark place, check out the stars, and have a great conversation. When all else fails, you can just make out.
Brooke Burke
I am always going to be a theater actor at heart. One of my career goals is to do “Shakespeare in the Park” someday but for now I am really excited to get working on another movie.
Michael Stahl-David
Let me speak frankly: separate but equal is a fraud. It is the language that tried to push Rosa Parks to the back of the bus. It is the motif that determined that black and white people could not possibly drink from the same water fountain, eat at the same table or use the same toilets.
David Lammy
The soul, O ganders, flies beyond the parks
And far beyond the discords of the wind.
Wallace Stevens
Rosa Parks was the queen mother of a movement whose single act of heroism sparked the movement for freedom, justice and equality. Her greatest contribution is that she told us a regular person can make a difference.
Marc Morial
Like a child standing in a beautiful park with his eyes shut tight, there’s no need to imagine trees, flowers, deer, birds, and sky; we merely need to open our eyes and realize what is already here, who we already are – as soon as we stop pretending we’re small or unholy.
Bo Lozoff
Then Park reached up and wrapped one of her red curls around his honey finger. “Back to missing you,” he said, letting it go.
Rainbow Rowell
I was part of Environment Canada’s work to stop acid rain, create national parks, clean up the Great Lakes, develop new environmental legislation and negotiate the treaty that saved the ozone layer.
Elizabeth May
We’ve achieved this feeling, for instance, with the colors. The colors in the park are harmonious with each other, not like in big cities where they don’t.
John Hench
When I flew from Orlando to Los Angeles in 1960, I sat next to a guy from Disney who was paying 75Вў an acre for land. I thought he was some special kind of fool – and since they built the park, history has proven there was a fool sitting in one of our seats.
Deacon Jones
I just love Bayonne. I love the parks. I love the pizzerias. I love the simple things in life, and its all here.
Tammy Blanchard
We’ve got to get people out of their cars, out of those drive-thru windows, get them walking, get them in parks and get them more active.
Mick Cornett
Most of the writers in TV are from L.A. or New York, and those are places where people are cynical and snarky. And they fly from L.A. to New York in an airplane over this vast, expansive land where people aren’t snarky; they’re a lot more like the Parks and Recreation characters.
Chris Pratt
Joy comes from places you least expect it. Its usually the simple things, like watching my son play basketball or going through Central Park when the blossoms are blooming.
Dave Gahan
We believed in our idea – a family park where parents and children could have fun- together.
Walt Disney
When I’m by myself, I’m not threatening at all. I get many more invitations than I would if I were traveling with anyone else, especially with a man. But I’m rarely alone. I sit on a park bench and I’m not alone because I pick a park bench where somebody interesting is sitting.
Rita Gelman
I came from a very comfortable, middle-class family living in Highland Park, Illinois.Really growing up in a Jewish community with a fabulous public school.
Jill Stein
With ‘Blue Slide Park’ I wanted to have a number one album, and I did do it, so I’m not mad at it, but that was its goal.
Mac Miller
Seeing Shakespeare in the Park, for me, it’s just this side of feeling like you’ve witnessed some kind of magic. It’s this spell that you’re under, to be part of that!
Julia Roberts
People are getting more active and living healthier in San Antonio, whether it’s walking, cycling, or using our parks. We now have concrete evidence that our investments are paying off and positively impacting the health of our families and the overall quality of life in San Antonio.
Julian Castro
I went to the park and saw this kid flying a kite. The kid was really excited. I don’t know why, that’s what they’re supposed to do. Now if he had had a chair on the other end of that string, I would have been impressed.
Mitch Hedberg
I think if you look at the Singapore projects, we wanted to do industrial parks. They have taken very long to clear the issues of land, and these become politicised, and you can’t settle it, and eventually the project languishes and nothing happens.
Lee Hsien Loong
We should make it a crime even to attempt to pollute. Our children should grow up next to parks, not poison.
William J. Clinton
The fate of the African continent does not f-ing depend on a load of f-ing musicians in Hyde Park singing f-ing s-t songs to kids.
Noel Gallagher
I’m enjoying the opportunity that Parks And Recreation affords me to exploit my own soapbox agenda, which is to try to encourage people to make things with their hands.
Nick Offerman
We got really creative. No longer are we just going up to people on the streets or parks or supermarkets. Instead, we would rent a whole location and then film there over an entire week.
Sal Vulcano
I think the ‘South Park’ guys are brilliant.
Dan Savage
My wife is very patient. On our honeymoon in 1992, we got a motor home and drove from L.A. to Idaho and then down the coast. I was running a lot, then so she would drop me off, drive six miles, park and wait for me.
Sean Astin
Entertainment Weekly said that Parks and Rec is the smartest comedy on tv. Call me when it’s the funniest.
Andy Kindler
A nice thing about being at Disney is that these movies can develop into a presence in theme parks and become something real, or maybe get a sequel or tell other stories.
Byron Howard
The decision [to create a theme park called “EuroWorld”] was made by the EU countries in response to their collective realization that no one in Europe has had an innovative idea in well over a century.
Jonah Goldberg
Our parks are a major part of the state’s tourism industry, and this will allow us to make them even more attractive to in-state and out-of-state visitors.
Jim Justice
I grew up with family who liked to travel and sightsee, so I have this pressure inside me: If I’m in a city and I have enough free time, I’d better go to a museum. I try to see parks, go outside. Or else try to feel really normal like go to Target or a drugstore, or go see a movie.

Like with ‘Parks and Recreation,’ it’s so much fun because the people writing it are funny and they’re open and you just go in there and have a good time. It’s pretty much the easiest job I’ve ever had.

So when people go to the park this summer, they are not going to have the same quality of a visit. There is not going to be a ranger out on the trail to tell them about the important cultural and historic areas within the Olympic National Park.

Everyone who knew [Barack] Obama from being in Hyde Park knew he was the smartest guy in any room he walked into; a decent, compassionate, lovely person; pragmatic, middle-of-the-road and ambitious.
Bill Ayers
The World’s Fair was the precursor to theme parks like Disneyworld, and the really sort of cheap, superficial promotional architecture that you see everywhere in the U.S. I think there’s a danger when you start creating a civilisation that isn’t meant to last.
Sufjan Stevens
In autumn, don’t go to jewellers to see gold; go to the parks!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I love the fact that there is now a skate park in almost every city, but it will always have a rebellious/underground edge to it because it is based on individuality.
Tony Hawk
I would certainly end up forever crying the blues into a coffee cup in a park for old men playing chess or silly games of some sort.
Charles Bukowski
What a lonely species we are, searching for signals of life from other galaxies, adopting companion animals, visiting parks and zoos to commune with other beasts. In the process, we discover our shared identity.
Diane Ackerman
The world knows of Rosa Parks because of a single, simple act of dignity and courage that struck a lethal blow to the foundations of legal bigotry.
William J. Clinton
They tell me that So-and-So, who does not write prefaces, is no charlatan. Well, I am. I first caught the ear of the British public on a cart in Hyde Park, to the blaring of brass bands,and this . . . because . . . I am a natural-born mountebank.
George Bernard Shaw
I love New York. You can pop out of the Underworld in Central Park, hail a taxi, head down Fifth Avenue with a giant hellhound loping behind you, and nobody even looks at you funny.
Rick Riordan
We have a broad, well-positioned company, so when ‘Minions’ comes out, it can be in theme parks all over the world. We own Fandango. We can advertise on a network. We can have the characters pop up on the Golf Channel.
