Quotes About Cities Changing

Whose truth do you want to know, Dr. Amin Jaafari? The truth of a Bedouin who thinks hes free and clear because hes got an Israeli passport? The truth of a serviceable Arab per excellence whos honored wherever he goes, who gets invited to fancy parties by people who want to show how tolerant and considerate they are? The truth of someone who thinks he can change sides like changing a shirt, with no trace left behind? Is that the truth youre looking for, or is it the one youre running away from? What planet do you live on, sir? ... Our cities are being buried by machines on caterpillar tracks, our patron saints dont know which way to turn, and you, simply because youre nice and warm in your golden cage, refuse to see the inferno consuming us.

Bad hair, acrid breath, lumpy skin, all vanished for an hour every Tuesday and Thursday. Young minds in the buff soared into the sphere of pure reason. Pages turned to parallelograms; cities, circumferences; recipes, ratios. Shorn of our bearings, we groped our way around in this rarefied air.

The most interesting of the classic movie genres to me are the indigenous ones: the Western, which was born on the Frontier, the Gangster Film, which originated in the East Coast cities, and the Musical, which was spawned by Broadway. They remind me of jazz: they allowed for endless, increasingly complex, sometimes perverse variations. When these variations were played by the masters, they reflected the changing times; they gave you fascinating insights into American culture and the American psyche.

— Martin Scorsese

— Elizabeth Kolbert
