Dorothy Parker Quotes

Dorothy Parker
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dorothy Parker (August 22, 1893 – June 7, 1967) was an American poet, short story writer, critic and satirist, best known for her wit, wisecracks, and eye for 20th century urban foibles.

… Parker rose to acclaim … for her literary output… Parker traveled to Hollywood to pursue screenwriting. Her successes there, including two Academy Award nominations, were curtailed as her involvement in left-wing politics led to a place on the Hollywood blacklist.

Dismissive of her own talents, she deplored her reputation as a “wisecracker.” Nevertheless, her literary output and reputation for her sharp wit have endured.

       Two at the very most.
       After three I’m under the table,

• It serves me right for keeping all my eggs in one bastard.

• You can’t teach an old dogma new tricks.

• I don’t care what is written about me so long as it isn’t true.
