London: a place you go to get bronchitis.
Fran Lebowitz

London is sentimental and tolerant. The attitude to foreigners is like the attitude to dogs: Dogs are neither human nor British, but so long as you keep them under control, give them their exercise, feed them, pat them, you will find their wild emotions are amusing, and their characters interesting.
V. S. Pritchett

I'm leaving because the weather is too good. I hate London when it's not raining.
Groucho Marx

You find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.
Samuel Johnson

London, that great cesspool into which all the loungers of the Empire are irresistibly drained.
Arthur Conan Doyle
A Study in Scarlet.

I’m sick of fog and yellow gloom,
Of faces strange, and alien eyes,
Your London is a vault, a tomb,
To those born ’neath Australian skies.
O land of gold and burning blue, 5
I’m crying like a child for you!
Dorothy Frances McCrae

When it’s three o’clock in New York, it’s still 1938 in London.
Bette Midler

Hell is a city much like London --
A populous and a smoky city;
There are all sorts of people undone,
And there is little or no fun done.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Peter Bell the Third.

And now farewell to London, dirty little pool of life.
B.M. Malabari
The Indian Eye on English Life.

A man who can dominate a London dinner table can dominate the world. The future belongs to the dandy. It is the exquisites who are going to rule.
Oscar Wilde
A Woman of No Importance.

In London they don't like you if you're still alive.
Harvey Fierstein

There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it
And its morals aren't worth what a pig could spit
And it goes by the name of London.
Stephen Sondheim
Sweeney Todd.

Oh, I love London Society! It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics. Just what Society should be.
Oscar Wilde
An Ideal Husband.

A person who is tired of London is not necessarily tired of life; it might be that he just can’t find a parking place.
Paul Theroux
Sunrise with Seamonsters.

This melancholy London – I sometimes imagine that the souls of the lost are compelled to walk through its streets perpetually. One feels them passing like a whiff of air.
W. B. Yeats

Forasmuch as there is great noise in the city caused by hustling over large balls, from which many evils may arise, which God forbid, we command and forbid on behalf of the king, on pain of imprisonment, such game to be used in the city in future.
King Edward II
In royal proclamation banning football from the streets of London, 1314.

The truth is, that in London it is always a sickly season. Nobody is healthy in London, nobody can be.
Jane Austin

It is my belief, Watson, founded upon my experience, that the lowest and vilest alleys of London do not present a more dreadful record of sin than does the smiling and beautiful countryside.
Arthur Conan Doyle
The Copper Beeches, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

Go to London. I guarantee you’ll either be mugged or not appreciated. Catch the train to London, stopping at Rejection, Disappointment, Backstabbing Central and Shattered Dreams Parkway.
Alan Partridge
I'm Alan Partridge.

It was a Sunday afternoon, wet and cheerless; and a duller spectacle this earth of ours has not to show than a rainy Sunday in London.
Thomas De Quincey
Confessions of an English Opium-Eater.

Can’t make out how you stand London Society. The thing has gone to the dogs, a lot of damned nobodies talking about nothing.
Oscar Wilde
An Ideal Husband.

London is a splendid place to live for those who can get out of it.
Lord Balfour of Burleigh

Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London society is full of women of the very highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years.
Oscar Wilde
The Importance of Being Earnest.

London is a roost for every bird.
Benjamin Disraeli

The amount of women in London who flirt with their own husbands is perfectly scandalous. It looks so bad. It is simply washing one’s clean linen in public.
Oscar Wilde
The Importance of Being Earnest.

I don’t know what London’s coming to – the higher the buildings the lower the morals.
Noël Coward

London is full of women who trust their husbands. One can always recognize them. They look so thoroughly unhappy.
Oscar Wilde
Lady Windermere’s Fan.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner,
That I love London so;
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner,
That I think of her wherever I go.
I get a funny feeling inside of me,
Just walking up and down;
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner,
That I love London town.
Hubert Gregg
