Англичане

"Самая опасная вещь в мире - подружиться с англичанином, потому что он, скорее, будет ночевать в вашем шкафу, чем потратит 10 шиллингов на отель" (писатель Трумен Капоте).

"Ужасно хороший вкус" (Ghastly Good Taste), или "История расцвета и падения английской архитектуры" (название книги Джона Бенджамина).

"Мне нравятся англичане. У них самый суровый кодекс безнравственности в мире" (писатель Мелколм Бредбери).

"Без классового различия Англия не была бы таким реалистичным театром, каковым она является" (писатель Энтони Бургесс).

"Британцы больше любят постоянство и прочность, нежели красоту" (архитектор Хью Кассон).

Лондон

"В Лондоне выдающиеся люди рождаются в пропорции 1:16000, а в провинции 1:34000" (А. Конан Дойль, "Географическое распределение британского интеллекта").

"Для меня Лондон - самый интересный, самый красивый, самый удивительный город в мире" (Г. Уэллс).

"Такой город, как Лондон, по которому бродишь часами, не видя ему конца... представляет собой нечто совсем особенное" (Ф. Энгельс).

"Нет города в мире, который бы больше отучал от людей и больше приучал бы к одиночеству, как Лондон. Кто умеет жить один, тому нечего бояться лондонской скуки. Здешняя жизнь, точно так же, как и здешний воздух вредна слабому, хилому, ищущему опоры вне себя, ищущему привет, участие, внимание..." (А. Герцен "Былое и думы").

"Это какая-то библейская картина, что-то о Вавилоне, какое-то пророчество из Апокалипсиса, воочию совершающееся" (Ф. Достоевский).

A man may learn from his Bible to be a more thorough gentleman than if he had been brought up in all the drawing-rooms in London.
Charles Kingsley

After living in LA for 8 years, I sort of wanted a change, but there's not much production in New York, which is where I primarily live, so I just sort of drifted over to London.
Alex Winter

After school I moved to London to get involved in music. I took the whole thing very seriously.
Dan Hawkins

All over London as one walks, one everywhere, in the season, sees oranges to sell; and they are in general sold tolerably cheap, one and even sometimes two for a halfpenny; or, in our money, threepence.
Karl Philipp Moritz

Almost every one of my various zero numbered birthdays has had a big concert in London and often in Paris.
Elliott Carter

America is a nation with no truly national city, no Paris, no Rome, no London, no city which is at once the social center, the political capital, and the financial hub.
C. Wright Mills

Americans are immensely popular in Paris; and this is not due solely to the fact that they spend lots of money there, for they spend just as much or more in London, and in the latter city they are merely tolerated because they do spend.
James Weldon Johnson

An actor who knows his business ought to be able to make the London telephone directory sound enthralling.
Donald Sinden

An office boy in London was the lowest of the low. The office boy was the tea boy. He would be the dog's body: It means someone who would do anything at all. I was quite prepared for that and enjoyed it.
George Carey

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

And it was only released in London last week, so when I go back to England Monday or whatever, I am expecting heaps of adulation. I'm hoping there is. If that doesn't happen I will be disappointed.
David Thewlis

As a student in London, I had seen so many shows, so many plays and had seen so many greats of the day.
David Naughton

As to London we must console ourselves with the thought that if life outside is less poetic than it was in the days of old, inwardly its poetry is much deeper.
Goldwin Smith

At the art college in Edinburgh someone arranged for some London groups to come up and play. I was in a supporting band, with Bernie Green I think. Derek Bailey was one of the visiting musicians. He seemed to like my playing and asked me to come down to London.

At the time, we thought it was a nice way to say something unique about the group to make us different from all the other bands kicking around in London.
Gerry Beckley

Audiences in London called me the girl with the black cherry eyes.
Maureen O'Hara

By seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show.

Even if a university should turn out to be another version of a school, I had decided I could lose myself afterwards as an anonymous particle of the London I already loved.

Fancy your having no sunshine in London yesterday! Here it was glorious, like full summer, and I sat up with the window wide open, listening to the discourse of two amorous thrushes.
Marie Corelli

For a London play, rehearsal time would be four weeks for the entire show. In films, I'd spend six weeks on the big dance numbers to get them perfect before the actual shooting.

Ewan McGregor

Gentlemen never wear brown in London.
Lord Curzon

Neil Tennant

Hitler bombed London into submission but in fact it created a sense of national solidarity.
Tom Paulin

However, we do not lack anti-terrorist laws. I do not believe that the recent London bombs were the result of any deficiencies in our legal system.

I am not quite sure where home is right now. I do have places in London and Milan, and a house in Spain. I guess I would say home is where my mother is, and she lives in Spain.
Sarah Brightman

I became an actor by doing school plays and youth theaters, and then National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. And then I did study at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. For me that was a good way to enter the field, to work in the theater.
Chiwetel Ejiofor

I became the toast of London. A lot of people I met came from these really decadent families where the married men were gay and no one thought anything about it.
Robert Mapplethorpe

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

I came back out here from England and I was there for a while and it was beautiful and it is just great to see London going from Spring to Summer and Autumn.
Orlando Bloom

I came to London. It had become the center of my world and I had worked hard to come to it. And I was lost.

I can walk about London and see a society that seems an absolutely revolutionary change from the 1950s, that seems completely and utterly different, and then I can pick up on something where you suddenly see that it's not.
Penelope Lively

I certainly have no plans to leave London. It's a great town.
Ewan McGregor

Eddie Marsan

I crammed my exams in London and did fine.
Rhona Mitra

I do notice that when I've been away and I come back to London. People look at you. People are ready to pick arguments.

I go to London, my favourite city in the world, and I feel at home.

Robert De Niro

I had studied theater for three years in London when someone suggested me for the role.

I had to have some balls to be Irish Catholic in South London. Most of that time I spent fighting.
Pierce Brosnan

I hate going out in Brighton now. It's different in London. People respect you more there.

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

I Kenneth Robert Livingstone, having been elected to the office of mayor of London, declare that I take that office upon myself, and will duly and faithfully fulfil the duties of it to the best of my judgement and ability.
Kenneth Robert Livingstone

I live in London and I am a British subject, although I do write in Spanish, of course.
Guillermo Cabrera Infante

I love going into the centre of London because people don't give a monkey's about you or who you are. You can be in a restaurant and no one notices you or if they do they won't show it.
Teddy Sheringham

I love London. I love England. We were out in the countryside and I had the time of my life.
Debra Messing

I loved living in London, and I didn't want to leave.
Delta Burke

I moved to New York last year and I love it. It's a huge change and I've always wanted to spend time there. It's like a more intense London, and everything's up a few notches. The lights are brighter, the pace is faster and the food's better.
Rachel Weisz

I paid my dues at drama school and worked backstage in every Theatre in London.
Richard O'Brien

I read numerous books - loads in fact - and, as I always do when recording a historical project, immersed myself into the subject matter. I spent many hours at Henry's old homes, such as Hampton Court, and visiting the Tower of London. I read no other books during that period.
Rick Wakeman

I received a D.Sc. from the University of London in 1992.
J. Philippe Rushton

Leslie Caron
Диана Халилова # 13 декабря 2014 в 02:34
I started going back and forth, New York, London, New York, London. I wasn't looking back at all. I was doing tons of jobs. Working, working, working, working.
Kate Moss

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

I started noticing how stained the pavements are in London. The pavements in Beverly Hills aren't used; in London, they're used for everything. It doesn't matter how much they're cleaned, they still reflect light.
Julie Christie

I studied for my degree in London and consequently ended up spending five years away from Cornwall. I deliberately moved away from the coast to experience a different way of life.
John Dyer

I suppose in London they all drink from the same watering holes.
Trisha Goddard

I think England has served me very well. I like living in London for the reasons I gave. I have absolutely no intentions of cutting those ties. There is absolutely no reason to do so. Certainly not, so that I can have a swimming pool and a palm tree.
Colin Firth

I think London's sexy because it's so full of eccentrics.
Rachel Weisz

I think now, more than anytime I can remember, bands are sounding pretty similar whether they're English or American, from Manchester or London... or Leeds or Welsh or Irish.
Graham Coxon

I think that London is very much like that. I find there's humour in the air and people are interesting. And I think that it's a place which is constantly surprising. The worst thing about it? I think it can be smug and aggressive.
Colin Firth

I thought of Paris as a beauty spot on the face of the earth, and of London as a big freckle.
James Weldon Johnson

I travel Europe every couple of weeks. I just came back from London, Holland and Denmark. Every nation on this planet has its issues with race, and I am not sure if everyone has figured out how to deal with it.
Montel Williams

I undertake that, in the exercise of my functions of that office I will have regard to any guidance with respect to ethical standards issued by the secretary of state under Section 66 of the Greater London Authority Act 1999.

Henry Hudson

I used to have a list of things from my school buddies of what kind of art material they wanted. I'd go up to the West End of London and spend the whole day knocking stuff off.
Ronald Biggs

I wake up every morning and I feel like I'm juggling glass balls. I live in Los Angeles, my business is run out of London, and most evenings I'm cuddled up in front of Skype, in my dressing gown, speaking with my studio in London. I travel a lot, my team travel a lot, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Victoria Beckham

I was 14 when I started modeling. At the end of that first day my mum said, If you want to do this, you're on your own because I'm not traipsing around London ever again like that. It's a nightmare.
Kate Moss

I was a Labour Party man but I found myself to the left of the Labour party in Nelson, militant as that was. I came to London and in a few months I was a Trotskyist.
C. L. R. James

I was a sort of rock journalist - whatever that is - in London in the late '60s.

I was born in London, and went to school in Scotland - I used to be dead tired when I got home at night.
Norman Wisdom

If the prime minister really believes it, he must be the only person left who thinks that the recent bombs in London had no connection at all with his policy in Iraq.
Kenneth Clarke

If you take the contempt some Americans have for yuppies and multiply it by 10 you might come close to understanding their attitude towards the City, as they call it - London, the people of the south.
Martin C. Smith

In course of time the Brothers Cowper removed the manufacture of their printing machines from London, to Manchester. There they found skilled and energetic workmen, ready to carry their plans into effect.

In London, love and scandal are considered the best sweeteners of tea.
John Osborne

In London, nobody comments on what you wear - they think that's not important to you or your state of well-being.

Virgil Thomson

In remembering those who lost their lives in the London attacks and the September 11th attacks we continue our commitment to fighting for freedom, democracy and justice.
Doc Hastings

In spite of holidays when I was free to visit London theatres and explore the countryside, I spent four very miserable years as a colonial at an English school.
Patrick White

In that sense, I became politicized because the people in the coal mining villages who were involved in the struggle knew why they were there. But they couldn't understand why some pop star from London would want to be there.
Billy Bragg

In the United States in 2009, more than 10.2 billion trips were taken on transit trains and buses. So far, the nation has not experienced a major transit attack since Sept. 11, but the March 2010 Moscow subway bombings and earlier train attacks in London and Mumbai show that we must be prepared.
John Mica

In this film, we took a helicopter up and showed London as a vista, which is not very often done.

It came as a great shock to me when I heard that England and Soviet Russia had become allies. So much so that I thought that the people responsible in London were acting in a manner that no longer coincided with British imperial interests.
John Amery

It is the folly of too many to mistake the echo of a London coffee-house for the voice of the kingdom.
Jonathan Swift

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

It was a night when London was ringed and stabbed with fire.
Ernie Pyle
Диана Халилова # 16 декабря 2014 в 16:46
It was a Sunday afternoon, wet and cheerless; and a duller spectacle this earth of ours has not to show than a rainy Sunday in London.
Thomas de Quincey

It was just a typical London flat, but it was in a great neighborhood. It was across from the Playboy Club, diagonally. From one balcony you could read the time from Big Ben, and from the other balcony you could watch the bunnies go up and down.
Harry Nilsson

It's a unique situation as well because England is a small country, so it makes it easy for the fans to travel. If we play down in London, they get buses and we'll get three or four thousand fans come down. They'll all sit in the same area and show their support for the team.
Claudio Reyna

John Lennon and Ringo Starr liked my songs. I used to write songs and they heard me sing songs on stage in London.
Ben Kingsley

Jurgen loved London because he could get lost here. He said that it was the first time he could do that in eight years. No one knew him or bothered him. It is great for a person to be able to get lost.
Teddy Sheringham

Like many Americans my thoughts and prayers are with the people of London. My deepest sympathies are extended to those who lost a loved one in the recent terror attacks.
Doc Hastings

London is a modern Babylon.
Benjamin Disraeli

London is a roost for every bird.

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

Graham Coxon

Markets rebounded quickly from morning jitters after the London Thursday terrorist bombing.
Cliff Stearns

Most people live in the city and go to the country at the weekend, and that's posh and aristocratic, but actually to live in the country and come to London when you can't take it any more is different.
Damien Hirst

My actual childhood, as opposed to my adolescence, was not spent in London.
Peter Shaffer

My administration will tackle these issues in consultation with the black communities of London.
Kenneth Robert Livingstone

My cousins gay, he went to London only to find out that Big Ben was a clock.
Rodney Dangerfield

My London constituency in Hackney has one of the highest levels of gun crime in the country. But the problem is no longer confined to inner city areas. Gun crime has spread to communities all over Britain.
Diane Abbott

Catherine Helen Spence

Now I'm back home, living in London, running my theater. I just want to enjoy all that.

Cecil Beaton

On March 4th, 1830, I arrived in London, where a new world seemed opened to me.
Henry Bessemer

On one night of my debut the Prince of Wales, the Princess, and the duchess of London came to see me. They loved me for what I was and what I gave them.
Lillie Langtry

On the other hand in London you can get an audience that desires dance to go as far as it can go: they've seen the bricks of ideas built over a period so therefore there is an acceptance of what otherwise might seem out on a limb.
Siobhan Davies

On the other hand, all kinds of adventurous schemes to add security checkpoints to subway and bus systems have been circulating since the London attacks. This is nonsense. No one can guaranty 100 percent security.
Otto Schily

On this basis, which was originally financial and goes back to George Peabody, there grew up in the twentieth century a power structure between London and New York which penetrated deeply into university life, the press, and the practice of foreign policy.
Carroll Quigley

Once, in London, the BBC asked me what was my favorite English book. I said Alice in Wonderland.
Gyorgy Ligeti

One of the special characteristics of New York is that it is different from a London or a Paris because it's the financial capital, and the cultural capital, but not the political capital.
Ron Chernow

One person goes off and works in Houston the other person goes off to London and you're on the phone to each other and somebody is paying you to kiss somebody else. It's very bizarre being an actor.

Gary Oldman

Someday when peace has returned to this odd world I want to come to London again and stand on a certain balcony on a moonlit night and look down upon the peaceful silver curve of the Thames with its dark bridges.

Диана Халилова # 20 декабря 2014 в 16:09

There may be problems we still need to tease out, but we will leave no stone unturned in our bid to make London the host city.
Sebastian Coe

There was no real fringe theatre in London until way after the war, so either a play was done secretly with a club licence or it was done openly and had to be assessed along with everything else.
Timothy West

There's all this stuff that is happening in Edinburgh now, it's a sad attempt to create an Edinburgh society, similar to a London society, a highbrow literature celebrity society.
Irvine Welsh

There's no secret about my ambition, I do not want to go into the House of Commons. My only real political interest is in London and if one day I'm in a position to run for mayor, then terrific.
Trevor Phillips

There's something about doing theatre in London - it sinks a little bit deeper into your soul as an actor. It's something about the tradition of theatre, about performing on the West End stage.
Christian Slater

There's this idea that it has to be made in London. But we've got everything up here, and if you've got comics who are gifted because of where they're from, you shouldn't drag them away from that natural resource.
Johnny Vegas

They look outside the windows of their apartment in town and realize they're not living in a terrace anymore. This is a room full of dreamers who like to go to London for a day.
Johnny Vegas

They never were planning to be here. All my family are going to London because they wanted to go to the big one. There was never any showdown - there wouldn't be.
Charlotte Church

This is what I wanted. They tell me that London is the best field in history. I wanted to be part of that. Because everyone will be there it will be a wonderful challenge for me. You can see the best runners, how they look, how they run. For me to beat the best is what counts.
Haile Gebrselassie

This melancholy London - I sometimes imagine that the souls of the lost are compelled to walk through its streets perpetually. One feels them passing like a whiff of air.
William Butler Yeats

Three hundred years ago a prisoner condemned to the Tower of London carved on the wall of his cell this sentiment to keep up his spirits during his long imprisonment: 'It is not adversity that kills, but the impatience with which we bear adversity.
James Keller

To play today in London, next week in Madrid and the week after that in Warsaw is a bit better than playing Newark and Baltimore and Philadelphia. I've been doing that for 20 years.
Norman Granz

To think that the new economy is over is like somebody in London in 1830 saying the entire industrial revolution is over because some textile manufacturers in Manchester went broke.

We can talk about Manchester! I like coming here, it's a wicked city. It's my second favourite city in England after London. I like Liverpool too but there's a lot more to do in Manchester.
Dave Mason

We did a remake of Lost in Space. Filmed it in London for four months.
Lacey Chabert

We knew we did not want to record at Impulse Studios again, after the experience of recording in a 'real' studio in London for the Radio One session we did.
John Gallagher

We live in the country, and I have a huge library there. When we go to London for the winter I never know which books to take. I never know what I am going to need. That's the only disadvantage.
Mordecai Richler

We moved there a year ago, just as a weekend place. Then we decided to move out of London completely. We will eventually have to work it out a bit more, because you can't have a little boy living with his sisters like that, can you? But we like the idea of closeness.
Linda McCartney

We then journeyed on to London Street, down which the tidal ditch continues its course.
Henry Mayhew

We took an approach, supported by the Prime Minister, the Home Secretary and the Mayor for London, that we had very real fears of violence and damage being caused across the streets of London.
Michael Todd

We used to play in a theater club in London called The King's Head. When the theater let nut, around 10:00 P.M., we'd be ready to go and really get it on for about an hour or so.
Mark Knopfler

Well I grew up in England, and I was in the London police.
Tony Greig

Well, I heard of Sunny Ade, and looks as if his music is gonna be big on a global level, because I was in London the other day and some people asked me to review the album.
Dennis Brown

What can you do if a part of it is uphill? You can't work out another route. You've just got to run the one they give you. But they tell me London is a nice course. Even the cobbles, I hope, are not very much of a problem for me.
Haile Gebrselassie

When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.
Samuel Johnson

When Blur first started and we were playing Manchester the Hacienda was the place to go. That was where a lot of exciting stuff was happening and London was pretty dead.
Graham Coxon

When Culture Club broke up, I hadn't been going out a lot because we'd been working all the time, so I suddenly had this period of leisure. And it was just around the time that the whole acid house thing kicked off in London.
Boy George

When I come to London, I always like to see what's playing at the NFT.
Walter Salles

When I did it, I was a starving musician in London in a basement flat, but a simple tune with the right singer or the right situation can become very well liked and accepted. I'm only too pleased to say it happened with that one.
Mick Ralphs

When I married Paul, we lived in St John's Wood in London. We had nice next-door neighbours, but you don't know anyone else. Everyone lives in isolation.
Linda McCartney

When I was a teenager in Iceland people would throw rocks and shout abuse at me because they thought I was weird. I never got that in London no matter what I wore.
Bjork

When I was in college, I spent a summer working in London. I'd enjoyed tea before that, but then I got actual, really good tea there and never looked back.
Sarah Zettel

When I'm in London I do have the convenience of being close to St James Park which is also good for me because it gives me an excuse to get out and get some much needed exercise!

Very good wine was bought at ten pounds per pipe, the contract price; but the superior quality was fifteen pounds; and some of this was not much inferior to the best London Madeira.
William Bligh

Vicars, MPS and lawyers were amont those who considered me to be the best hostess in London.
Cynthia Payne

When it's three o'clock in New York, it's still 1938 in London.
Bette Midler

When really you've gone to drama school and rep and then you've come to London and gone to auditions and you've worked, solidly, for years. But that all gets forgotten.
Julia Ormond

When we arrived in London, my sadness at leaving Paris was turned into despair. After my long stay in the French capital, huge, ponderous, massive London seemed to me as ugly a thing as man could contrive to make.
James Weldon Johnson

When we race in London a world record will be the last thing on our minds.
Haile Gebrselassie

When you're doing a deal with someone in the southern Sahara, it's a very different way of doing business than in London. You can't sign them in the usual way because they'd end up getting ripped off, which would defeat the object of setting up a label like this.
Damon Albarn

Yet while on my trip to the Middle East, the London bombings occurred. This was yet another stark reminder that if we don't fight terrorists abroad, they just get closer to our home.
Kenny Marchant

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

You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.
Samuel Johnson

You know Manchester is always a bit of a hard place for people coming from London, just with all the history. Manchester has this immensely huge and healthy history musically.
Graham Coxon

You know, I have guys that are almost stalkers... it is very strange. I had this one guy that e-mailed me off my site, and thought we were boyfriend and girlfriend. He then came to my house in London, I do not know how he found it.
Caprice Bourret

You see in the streets of London, great and little boys running about in long blue coats, which, like robes, reach quite down to the feet, and little white bands, such as the clergy wear.
Karl Philipp Moritz
