Nancy Pickard

  • It's dangerous to start attributing your fortunes to luck and your misfortunes to fate.

  • History is the study of lies, anyway, because no witness ever recalls events with total accuracy, not even eyewitnesses.

  • Welcome to New York, where everybody's a stranger, and nobody is.

  • New York City was the world's biggest vibrator. Everything vibrated above, and below the streets.

  • New York was an idea, I thought, an idea held simultaneously by thirteen million people.

  • Where there are problems, there are angels hovering about just waiting for us to ask them to help us transform our suffering into blessings. I'm not being religious, I'm telling you the truth as I have experienced it. ... And I'm not being trendy either. I was talking to angels long before they got fashionable. ... So maybe you don't believe in angels, that's all right, they don't care. They're not like Tinkerbell, you know, they don't depend on your faith to exist. A lot of people didn't believe the earth was round either, but that didn't make it any flatter.

  • God is a name we give to love.
