Best Glasgow quotes

Postby Ronnie » Sun Feb 22, 2004 10:24 pm

What are peeps' favourite quotes about Glasgow? My top three are probably:

"It was Glasgow on a Friday night, the city of the stare."
- William McIlvanny, The Papers of Tony Vietch (1983).

"Glasgow - that strange, deplorable city which has neither sweetness nor pride, the vomit of a cataleptic commercialism."
- James Leslie Mitchell, The Thirteenth Disciple (1931).

"Imaginatively Glasgow exists as a music hall song and a few bad novels."
- Alasdair Gray, Lanark (1981).

Best, Ronnie

I have been often been asked, and that too very far away parts of the world, as where I was born. My answer at times has been that I was “Clyde built”. The metaphor was scarcely ever misunderstood”
William “Crimean” Simpson 1899
