Three quotes by Fran Lebowitz
Frances Ann Lebowitz (born Morristown NJ, October 27, 1950) is an American author, public speaker, and occasional actor. She is known for her sardonic social commentary on American life as filtered through her New York City sensibilities and her association with many prominent figures of the 1970s and 1980s New York art scene, including Andy Warhol, Martin Scorsese, Jerome Robbins, Robert Mapplethorpe, David Wojnarowicz and the New York Dolls. The New York Times has called her a modern-day Dorothy Parker.
