American writer, poet, and critic.
Dorothy Parker
You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.
Parker quotes
And she had It. It, hell; she had Those.
Parker
The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.




Parker Dorothy quotes
Drink and dance and laugh and lie,
Love, the reeling midnight through,
For tomorrow we shall die!
(But, alas, we never do.)
Parker Dorothy
The House Beautiful is, for me, the play lousy.
Dorothy Parker quotes
One more drink and I'd have been under the host.
Dorothy Parker
And it is that word 'hummy,' my darlings, that marks the first place in The House at Pooh Corner at which Tonstant Weader fwowed up.
Parker Dorothy quotes
That woman speaks eighteen languages, and can't say No in any of them.
Parker
This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.
Parker Dorothy
Too fucking busy, and vice versa.
Dorothy Parker
Dotty had
Great Big
Visions of
Quietude.
Dotty saw an
Ad, and it
Left her
Flat.
Dotty had a
Great Big
Snifter of
Cyanide.
And that (said Dotty)
Is that.




Dorothy Parker quotes
Well, Aimee Semple McPherson has written a book. And were you to call it a little peach, you would not be so much as scratching its surface. It is the story of her life, and it is called In the Service of the King, which title is perhaps a bit dangerously suggestive of a romantic novel. It may be that this autobiography is set down in sincerity, frankness and simple effort. It may be, too, that the Statue of Liberty is situated in Lake Ontario.

ďMartini Madness: Dorothy Parker didnít write the famous quatrain about martinis thatís always attributed to her.Ē, Troy Patterson, Slate, April 8, 2013
Parker quotes
I'm never going to accomplish anything; that's perfectly clear to me. I'm never going to be famous. My name will never be writ large on the roster of Those Who Do Things. I don't do anything. Not one single thing. I used to bite my nails, but I don't even do that any more.
Parker Dorothy
I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three Iím under the table,
After four Iím under my host.
Parker Dorothy quotes
That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.
Dorothy Parker
Brevity is the soul of lingerie.
Dorothy Parker quotes
The ones I like ... are "cheque" and "enclosed."
Dorothy Parker
You can't teach an old dogma new tricks.
Parker Dorothy
Perhaps attributed due to ďOne more drink and I'd have been under the host.Ē (see above).
