What did Jesus Christ say to the Teamsters? 'Do nothing till I get back.'
Westlake quotes
Brian had all that day to figure out what was going on, and yet he didn't.
Westlake
The August sun, God's blood-blister...




Westlake Donald E. quotes
New York doesn't exactly have neighborhoods, the way most cities do. What it has is closer to distinct and separate villages, some of them existing on different continents, some of them existing in different centuries, and many of them at war with one another. English is not the primary language in many of these villages, but the Roman alphabet does still have a slight edge.
Westlake Donald E.
Everybody in New York City is looking for something. Men are looking for women and women are looking for men. Down at the Trucks, men are looking for men, while at Barbara's and at the Lib women are looking for women. Lawyers' wives in front of Lord & Taylor are looking for taxis, and lawyers' wives' husbands down on Pine Street are looking for loopholes. The hookers in front of the Americana hotel are looking for johns, and the kids opening cab doors in front of the Port Authority are looking for tips. So are the riders on the Aqueduct Special. So are the cabbies, the bellboys, the waiters and the undercover narcs.
Donald E. Westlake quotes
Eyes wide and blank as the buttons on a first Communion coat.
Donald E. Westlake
In order to hold your faith intact be sure it's kept unsullied by fact.
