“I could hear everything, together with the hum of my hotel neon. I never felt sadder in my life. LA is the loneliest and most brutal of American cities; New York gets godawful cold in the winter but there’s a feeling of wacky comradeship somewhere in some streets. LA is a jungle.” 
― Jack KerouacOn the Road

“Los Angeles was the kind of place where everybody was from somewhere else and nobody really droppped anchor. It was a transient place. People drawn by the dream, people running from the nightmare. Twelve million people and all of them ready to make a break for it if necessary. Figuratively, literally, metaphorically — any way you want to look at it — everbody in L.A. keeps a bag packed. Just in case.” 
― Michael ConnellyThe Brass Verdict

  4. I was there only briefly (passing through, of course) and I have to say that this pretty much summarises how I felt about what I saw. Some great quotes! Thanks for sharing. :)
