Woody Allen


American film director, writer, musician, actor and comedian.
Woody Allen
I'm not a drinker ó my body will not tolerate spirits. I had two Martinis on New Year's Eve and I tried to hijack an elevator and fly it to Cuba.
Allen quotes
There have been times when I've thought of suicide but with my luck it'd probably be a temporary solution.
Allen
I should stop ruining my life searching for answers I'm never gonna get, and just enjoy it while it lasts.




Allen Woody quotes
A lot of things have happened in my private life recently that I thought we could review tonight.
Allen Woody
It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Woody Allen quotes
Maybe the poets are right. Maybe love is the only answer.
Woody Allen
I was supremely confident my flair for atmosphere and characterization would sparkle alongside the numbing mulch ground out by studio hacks. Certainly the space atop my mantel might be better festooned by a gold statuette than by the plastic dipping bird that now bobbed there ad infinitum.
Allen Woody quotes
To me there's no real difference between a fortune teller or a fortune cookie and any of the organized religions. They're all equally valid or invalid, really. And equally helpful.
Allen
The difference between sex and death is, with death you can do it alone and nobody's going to make fun of you.
Allen Woody
Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.
Woody Allen
Change is death.




Woody Allen quotes
It is impossible to experience one's own death objectively and still carry a tune.
Woody Allen
It is impossible to travel faster than light, and certainly not desirable, as one's hat keeps blowing off.
Allen quotes
Not only is there no God, but try getting a plumber on weekends.
Allen Woody
To you I'm an atheist; to God, I'm the Loyal Opposition.
Allen Woody quotes
When it comes to sex there are certain things that should always be left unknown, and with my luck, they probably will be.
Woody Allen
Bidnick gorges himself on Viagra, but the dosage makes him hallucinate and causes him to imagine he is Pliny the Elder.
Woody Allen quotes
To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But, then one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer, to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love, to be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy, therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness ó I hope you're getting this down.
Woody Allen
I have learned one thing. As Woody says, "Showing up is 80 percent of life." Sometimes itís easier to hide home in bed. Iíve done both.
Allen Woody
"You know, the whole American culture is going down the drain, you can't turn on a television set and see anything, or walk in the street and not find garbage, or neighborhoods that were formerly beautiful now have McDonald's in them, and it's all a part of an enormous degeneration of culture in the United States. People that exist in that culture are forced to make moral decisions all the time about their lives, their occupations, their love-lives, and they make decisions that are commensurate with what's happening to them in this culture, and it's too bad that that's happening because that's what Manhattan is about, that New York used to be such a great city, so wonderful, and it has to fight every day for its survival against the encroachment of all this terrible ugliness that is gradually overcoming all the big cities in America.
This ugliness comes from a culture that has no spiritual center, a culture that has money and education, but no sense of being at peace with the world, no sense of purpose in life. They don't know what they're doing, or why they're here. They have no religious center, they have no philosophical center, and so they act, they do what's expedient at the moment. They have no long view of society. They only have the view of quick money, and kill the pain of the moment, and so instead of dealing with the real problems that exist, that are complicated, they sweep them under the rug by turning on the television set, or taking cocaine, or doing many things that enable them to escape confrontation with the unpleasant realities of the world."
