Interview with 60 Minutes (March 6, 1983)
A person in a rented apartment must be able to lean out of his window and scrape off the masonry within arm's reach. And he must be allowed to take a long brush and paint everything outside within arm's reach. So that it will be visible from afar to everyone in the Street that someone lives there who is different from the imprisoned, enslaved, standardised man who lives next door.friedensreich hundertwasser
CIRCA aims to make clowning dangerous again, to bring it back to the Street, restore its disobedience and give it back the social function it once had: its ability to disrupt, critique and heal society. Since the beginning of time tricksters (the mythological origin or all clowns) have embraced life's paradoxes , creating coherence through confusion adding disorder to the world in order to expose its lies and speak the truth.
You may be a king or a little Street sweeper, but sooner or later you dance with the reaper!

Halfway down a by-Street of one of our New England towns stands a rusty wooden house, with seven acutely peaked gables, facing towards various points of the compass, and a huge, clustered chimney in the midst. The Street is Pyncheon Street; the house is the old Pyncheon House; and an elm-tree, of wide circumference, rooted before the door, is familiar to every town-born child by the title of the Pyncheon Elm.Nathaniel Hawthorne
If the Street life, not the Whitechapel Street life, but that of the common but so-called respectable part of town is in any city more gloomy, more ugly, more grimy, more cruel than in London, I certainly don't care to see it. Sometimes it occurs to one that possibly all the failures of this generation, the world over, have been suddenly swept into London, for the streets are a restless, breathing, malodorous pageant of the seedy of all nations.willa cather
Objectively, class differences in accent, dress, manners, and general style of life are very much smaller; and one cannot, strolling about the Street or travelling on a train, instantly identify a person’s social background as one can in England. Subjectively, social relations are more natural and egalitarian, and less marked by deference, submissiveness, or snobbery, as one quickly discovers from the cab-driver, the barman, the air-hostess and the drug-store assistant.anthony crosland
If it wasn't for baseball, I'd be in either the penitentiary or the cemetery. I have the same violent temper my father and older brother had. Both died of injuries from Street fights in Baltimore, fights begun by flare-ups of their tempers.babe ruth
The idea (for the painting ‘Room in New York’, 1932, ed.) had been in my mind a long time before I painted it. It was suggested by glimpses of lighted interiors seen as I walked along city streets at night, probably near the district where I live (Washington Square, New York, fh) although it’s no particular Street or house, but is really a synthesis of many impressions.Edward Hopper
Nowadays you don't go around on the Street kicking people, punching people because if you do (makes gun shape with hand), well that's it I don't care how good you are.bruce lee
They (his Street scene paintings and drawings) originated in the years 1911-14, in one of the loneliest times of my life, during which an agonizing restlessness drove me out onto the streets day and night, which were filled with people and cars.ernst ludwig kirchner
So, then, Oxford Street, stonyhearted stepmother, thou that listenest to the sighs of orphans, and drinkest the tears of children, at length I was dismissed from thee.thomas de quincey
It doesn't matter what you do in the bedroom as long as you don't do it in the Street and frighten the horses.Mrs Patrick ne e Beatrice Rose StellaTanner Campbell
Maybe that's what is crazy: to want to be free. A lot of people wouldn't cross the Street for it.George Jonas
Andrea presented herself as a Street fighter intellectual, a bohemian freedom fighter, and someone who wanted to get to the bottom of things. That quote about Malcolm X is apt. Malcolm pointed out “The problem is WHITE PEOPLE.” Dworkin said, “The problem is MEN.” And for all the holes that can be poked in that cloth, there is something about that grain that is absolutely true, when you are the short end of the bolt.susie bright
The fate of the country does not depend on how you vote at the polls — the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot-box once a year, but on what kind of man you drop from your chamber into the Street every morning.Henry David Thoreau
We never really cared about all the things that other people cared about, you know? Like, people recognizing me on the Street never interested me. I've always been kind of suspicious of the world, anyway, so it's pretty easy for me to live in my own little world.meg white
No! How could I be defeated again by a pack of filthy Street rats?!
What, after all, is a better example of chaos theory than the harassment of a Street vendor in Tunisia leading to a civil war in Syria?
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season. The Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the Street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'
I yearned to trespass on Quality Street.
I went down to London with the idea that I was going to do vocals over this crazy, crazy trip-hop digital beat. Within two or three months, I heard Hunky Dory by David Bowie and that changed me in one way, and I realized what I actually wanted was to have an E Street Band — individuals, not session musicians.kt tunstall
Panic in Wall Street, brokers feeling melancholy.
