Quotations

The Invention of the Automobile

“The automobile engine will come, and then I will consider my life's work complete.” Rudolf Diesel

“A Frenchman has invented a horseless carriage. Which means that the French will have to eat more of their horses.” St. Paul Daily Globe, 18 June 1895

“Don't call them automobiles! Call them abominables! Call them that for me!” A.G. Sanford, May 1900, after losing his son to an automobile accident

"Through years of discouragement and effort they have worked out the problem, until to-day they have the perfected car, or one as near perfect as can possibly be made. The American automobile, as a rule, has become standardized, and it probably can never be bettered, except in minor details of finish and refinement of small parts.” John North Willys, The Automobile as a Civilizer, 1909

“It does not take a great prophet to predict that the time is not so very far off when the good old horse will receive his well-earned rest, and become the pet, rather than the slave, of civilization.” Alfred Reeves, General Manager of the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce

“We have changed a lot from the good, old-fashioned days when every home had a spare room and there was spare rib at Thanksgiving time. Now the best we can have is a spare tire.” Ralph Record, 1922

“I'd ban all automobiles from the central part of the city. You see, the automobile was just a passing fad. It's got to go. It's got to go a long way from here.” Lawrence Ferlinghetti

“In every phase of the automotive industry, certain factors have been more important than all others in relation to the way the automobile has looked. Phase One is really the Ford story. Function and production were the most important considerations. The automobile was an invention, and it looked like one.” Raymond Loewy

Advertising

“As long as the attitude is to only show the sheet metal, then automobile advertising will continue to be wretched.” Jerry Della Femina

Auto Industry

“I come from Toledo, Ohio, a town that has been hurt badly by the shift of the automobile business towards Japan. And yet I remember how the car workers lived in the neighborhood that I grew up in. My father was a car salesman, and I remember how we lived. I remember how modestly we lived.” P.J. O'Rourke

"Americans like to blast along over interstate highways at eighty miles an hour in big cars with every kind of power attachment, windows up, air conditioning on, radio going, one finger on the wheel. That's what they want, and that's what they buy, and that's what we manufacture. We build the best cars we can to meet the taste of the American people.” Henry Ford II

“Many of the temporary standards are unreasonable, arbitrary and technically unfeasible...if we can't meet them when they are published, we'll have to close down. If we have to close down some production lines because they don't meet the standards, we're in for real trouble in this country.” Henry Ford II (on new safety regulations that were to take effect on 1 January 1968 as set in the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act)

“There was a study done in the early 20th century of all the entrepreneurs who entered the automobile industry around the same time as Henry Ford; there were something like 500 automotive companies that got funded, had the internal combustion engine, had the technology, and had the vision. Sixty percent of them folded within a couple of years.” Eric Ries

“Vehicle emissions standards directly sparked the development and application of a wide range of automotive technologies that are now found throughout the global automobile market.” Keith Ellison

Autonomous Vehicles

“With the invention of self driving cars, eventually there will be a country song about your truck leaving you too.” from r/ShowerThoughts, 2017 “As self-driving cars become a reality, people will die in their cars and instead of causing an accident they will just show up to their destination dead.” from r/ShowerThoughts, 30 July 2017

Cultural Influence

“The automobile is an American cultural symbol.” Raymond Loewy

“Our national flower is the concrete cloverleaf.” Lewis Mumford (from The Culture of Cities, 1938)

“Let a man find himself, in distinction from others, on top of two wheels with a chain - at least in a poor country like Russia - and his vanity begins to swell out like his tires. In America it takes an automobile to produce this effect.” Leon Trotsky

“Everything in life is somewhere else, and you get there in a car.” E.B. White (from One Man's Meat, 1944)

“I think cars today are almost the exact equivalent of the great Gothic cathedrals. I mean the supreme creation of an era, conceived with passion by unknown artists, and consumed in image if not in usage by a whole population which appropriates them as a purely magical object.” Roland Barthes (The New Citroën, 1957)

“The best British cars are Italian.” Colin Chapman (radio interview to the BBC, 1958)

“The car has become a secular sanctuary for the individual, his shrine to the self, his mobile Walden Pond.” Edward McDonagh (from an article in Time, May 1963)

“All of the biggest technological inventions created by man - the airplane, the automobile, the computer - says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness.” Mark Kennedy

“The car has become an article of dress without which we feel uncertain, unclad, and incomplete in the urban compound.” Marshall McLuhan (from Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man, 1964)

"Climbing into a hot car is like buckling on a pistol. It is the great equalizer.” Henry Gregor Felsen (from To My Son - The Teenage Driver, 1964)

"Americans like to blast along over interstate highways at eighty miles an hour in big cars with every kind of power attachment, windows up, air conditioning on, radio going, one finger on the wheel. That's what they want, and that's what they buy, and that's what we manufacture. We build the best cars we can to meet the taste of the American people.” Henry Ford II

“Averroës, Kant, Socrates, Newton, Voltaire, could any of them have believed it possible that in the twentieth century the scourge of cities, the poisoner of lungs, the mass murderer and idol of millions would be a metal receptacle on wheels, and that people would actually prefer being crushed to death inside it during frantic weekend exoduses instead of staying, safe and sound, at home?” Stanisław Lem (The Futurological Congress, 1971, translation by Michael Kandel, 1974)

“As you move away from mass transit you become more dependent on the automobile, so you have to spread the housing out more to accomodate the cars.” Sandy Hornick (from an article in the New York Times, 21 May 1989)

“Remote villages and communities have lost their identity, and their peace and charm have been sacrificed to that worst of abominations, the automobile.” James Norman Hall

“The automobile, both a cause and an effect of this decentralization, is ideally suited for our vast landscape and our generally confused and contrary commuting patterns.” Brock Yates

“That is a fantastic American view, the rolling hills, then the craggy mountains, and the slowly and incompetently driven RV in the foreground.” James May, on James May's Road Trip, episode 9

“I do not understand people who will lustily throw $40,000 at the shiny red automobile of their choice, but well up with tears and become outraged when they are asked to pay $5 for a damaged videotape. Either they are fucked up and their priorities are fucked up or I am fucked up and my priorities are fucked up. Because I am me, I think it is them.” Don Borchert, Free for All: Oddballs, Geeks, and Gangstas in the Public Library, 2007

“We who live in Dixie wear our regional pride on our cars. But one driver probably has less to be proud of. His bumper sticker reads 'Southern Born and Southern Bread.'” Sandra Faires, Muscle Shoals, Alabama, September 2007 Reader's Digest

“Roads get wider and busier and less friendly to pedestrians. And all of the development based around cars, like big sprawling shopping malls. Everything seems to be designed for the benefit of the automobile and not the benefit of the human being.” Bill Bryson

“I suppose I try to look for those things where the world turns on you. It's every automobile accident, every accident at a party, you're having a good time until suddenly you're not.” John Irving

“Automobiles have always been part of my life, and I'm sure they always will be. What is it about them that moves me? The sound of a great engine, the unity and uniqueness of an automobile's engineering and coachwork, the history of the company and the car, and, of course, the sheer beauty of the thing.” Edward Herrmann

“The American automobile has changed the habits of every member of modern society.” Raymond Loewy

“Car designers are just going to have to come up with an automobile that outlasts the payments.” Erma Bombeck

“America is sick and tired of spending hour upon hour sitting in their automobile trying to get to work, trying to get kids to school, trying to get to a doctor's appointment.” Greg Abbott

“So the poet, who wants to be something that he cannot be, and is a failure in plain life, makes up fictitious versions of his predicament that are interesting even to other persons because nobody is a perfect automobile salesman.” Allen Tate

“In my case, the listener is often in an automobile driving to work. You can concentrate on the road while still getting an audio message that can be riveting.” Bob Edwards

“The automobile is technologically more sophisticated than the bundling board, but the human motives in their uses are sometimes the same.” Charles Mengel Allen

“A limit on the automobile population of the United States would be the best of news for our cities. The end of automania would save open spaces, encourage wiser land use, and contribute greatly to ending suburban sprawl.” Stewart Udall

“I have long argued that no one should be allowed to write opinion without spending years as a reporter - nothing like interviewing all four eyewitnesses to an automobile accident and then trying to write an accurate account of what happened.” Molly Ivins

“A man from a primitive culture who sees an automobile might guess that it was powered by the wind or by an antelope hidden under the car, but when he opens up the hood and sees the engine he immediately realizes that it was designed.” Michael Behe

Deliveries

While reversing the car: “Ahh, this takes me back.” anonymous

Driving

“Americans like to blast along over interstate highways at eighty miles an hour in big cars with every kind of power attachment, windows up, air conditioning on, radio going, one finger on the wheel. That's what they want, and that's what they buy, and that's what we manufacture. We build the best cars we can to meet the taste of the American people.” Henry Ford II

“Driving is a spectacular form of amnesia. Everything is to be discovered, everything to be obliterated. Admittedly, there is the primal shock of the deserts and the dazzle of California, but when this is gone, the secondary brilliance of the journey begins, that of the excessive, pitiless distance, the infinity of anonymous faces and distances, or of certain miraculous geological formations, which ultimately testify to no human will, while keeping intact an image of upheaval. This form of travel admits of no exceptions: when it runs up against a known face, a familiar landscape, or some decipherable message, the spell is broken: the amnesic, ascetic, asymptotic charm of disappearance succumbs to affect and worldly semiology.” Jean Baudrillard (America, 1988)

“Cars need a second, more friendly horn. Sometimes you wanna honk politely at someone.” Norm Kelly, 2017

Environmentalism

“This movie's from 1972, so I had this great moment of nostalgia where I was like, remember when cars were just horrible rectangles made out of smoke? Everyone's just driving a tissue box around, pouring out oil onto a baby seal.” Eli Bosnick, God Awful Movies, November 2016

“If we were driving pure hydrogen automobiles, that automobile would actually help clean up the air because the air coming out of the exhaust would be cleaner than the air going into the engine intake.” Dennis Weaver

“You ingest the automobile in the very air of Detroit. Or at least you did in the 1940s and 1950s.” Edward Herrmann

“But, as environment minister, I am very interested in a thriving German automobile industry, because I can only pay for the rising costs of environmental protection at home and abroad if there are people in Germany with jobs and who pay taxes.” Sigmar Gabriel

Flying Cars

“They’ll be quite noisy, the wind-force generated will be very high. And let’s just say that if something’s flying over your head, that is not an anxiety-reducing situation.” Elon Musk, 2017

Hybrid Cars, Plug-In

“It represents nothing less than the first step in the reinvention of the automobile.” Bob Lutz (GM Fastlane Blog, 2008)

“There are no new facts about the Kennedys, only new attitudes, a literature that, like the automobile industry, puts new bodies on old chassis.” John Gregory Dunne

Los Angeles

“Everybody knows that L.A. is known for its addiction to the single-passenger automobile, the gridlock, the congestion on the freeways.” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa

“Having an automobile in Los Angeles enables me to change clothes at least three times a day: I will go from western wear to nautical to Savile Row in the course of 12 hours.” RuPaul

Motorcycles

“Love is the feeling you get when you like something as much as your motorcycle.” Hunter S. Thompson

“Yet another way to make dreams come true...the dreams of people on the organ donor waiting list, that is.” Bill Crittenden, commenting on the release of a new Ducati sportbike.

New Cars

"Nothing ages your car as much as the sight of your neighbor's new one.” Evan Esar (from 20,000 Quips and Quotes, 1968)

“Why are women wearing perfumes that smell like flowers to attract men? Men don't like flowers. I wear a scent called 'new-car interior.'” Rita Rudner, September 2007 Reader's Digest

Parking

“I hate it when you have to park like a jerk because someone else did, then they leave and you look like the jerk.” u/Space_Pegasus on Reddit, 2017

Passengers

“Enid Nemy, that sparkling, star New York Times Style commentator, observed how car driving strains marriages almost to the point of rupture. She quotes one wife: 'In 35 years of marriage, I must have traveled 100,000 miles in the wrong direction with my husband. I've screamed and pleaded, but he's as stubborn as an ox. Every time we get into the car the same thing happens. I wear out my throat, and he ends up on the verge of apoplexy.'” Malcolm Forbes (1980)

“Auto racing, bull fighting, and mountain climbing are the only real sports...all others are games.” Ernest Hemingway

“If everything is under control, you're not going fast enough.” Mario Andretti

“I didn't understand NASCAR until I met some NASCAR fans. You talk to a couple of NASCAR fans and you'll see where a shiny car driving in a circle would fascinate them all day. I can make fun of NASCAR fans because if they chase me, I just turn right.” Alonzo Bodden, September 2007 Reader's Digest

“It's all fun and games until someone has to be mopped up off of the concrete with a sponge.” Bill Crittenden, in December 2007, regarding Cannonball-style cross country races.

“Failures are much more dramatic than successes, and people like drama. I think this is why automobile races draw such crowds. People expect spectacular crashes, which we tend to find more interesting than cars just racing around the track. The same is true of bridges, buildings, or any structure or machine.” Henry Petroskey

“This shoppin' cart ain't broke or wobbly, just needs a round of wedge and a trackbar adjustment.” Matt Crittenden, 2013

Recreational Vehicles

“That is a fantastic American view, the rolling hills, then the craggy mountains, and the slowly and incompetently driven RV in the foreground.” James May, on James May's Road Trip, episode 9

Religion

“The Church is not an automobile showroom - a place to put ourselves on display so that others can admire our spirituality, capacity, or prosperity. It is more like a service center, where vehicles in need of repair come for maintenance and rehabilitation.” Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Safety

“[There are] only two classes of pedestrians in these days of reckless motor traffic - the quick and the dead.” Lord Dewar (from Looking Back on Life, 1933)

“Many of the temporary standards are unreasonable, arbitrary and technically unfeasible...if we can't meet them when they are published, we'll have to close down.

“Averroës, Kant, Socrates, Newton, Voltaire, could any of them have believed it possible that in the twentieth century the scourge of cities, the poisoner of lungs, the mass murderer and idol of millions would be a metal receptacle on wheels, and that people would actually prefer being crushed to death inside it during frantic weekend exoduses instead of staying, safe and sound, at home?” Stanisław Lem (The Futurological Congress, 1971, translation by Michael Kandel, 1974)

“The problem with traffic is that the people of today are driving the cars of tomorrow on the roads of yesterday.” Bob Talbert (in Detroit Free Press, 1987)

“It's all fun and games until someone has to be mopped up off of the concrete with a sponge.” Bill Crittenden, in December 2007, regarding Cannonball-style cross country races.

“A human being is still more likely to die of a bee sting, snake bite or, Lord knows, automobile accident than by shark attack. We do not execute the perpretrators of death by car. We should not butcher an animal for an inadvertent homicide.” Peter Benchley

“Once the automobile appeared you could have predicted that it would destroy as many people as it did.” Ray Bradbury

“The killjoys initiated automobile crash standards so rigorous that we can't buy a car that hasn't been dropped from the top of a phone pole with our whole family strapped inside.” P.J. O'Rourke

“The phrase “Click It or Ticket” shows financial burden is a stronger deterrent than serious injury or death.” u/kevinsaidok on Reddit, 2017

Sports Cars

“If you speed in a sports car, I assume you're a rich douchebag. If you drive it safely, I'm irritated and wonder why you even bought it.” u/Flysusuwatari on Reddit, 2017

Technology

“You don't have to know how to build an automobile or a television set or a laptop to know how to use it.” Vint Cerf

“It used to be that if your automobile broke, the teenager down the street with the wrench could fix it. Now you have to have sophisticated equipment that can deal with microchips. We're entering a world in which the complexity of the devices and the system of interconnecting devices is beyond our capability to easily understand.” Howard Rheingold

“The whole idea that vehicles in the future will communicate with each other is a really big deal. It's a big deal for safety... and it's an opportunity to engage the automobile in the work of ensuring collision avoidance.” U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx

There is no such thing as a bad day at the race track There is no such thing as a bad day at the race track.

Note from Bill: Originally the idea behind this comes from the movie The Rookie, the short story is that there's a scene where the main character is struggling in the minor leagues and is ready to give up. He calls home, and remembers the life back there. He wakes up the next morning and tells his roommate in a really excited voice, "you know what we get to do today? We get to play baseball!!!" I think of that every time I see some mopey angry racer bitching about how hard it is after I've picked through the morning news of war casualties, starvation, and disaster looking for automotive news. I just want to say, "dude, you know what you got to do today? You got to drive a race car! And get paid for it!"

The motivation to get it out of the back of my head and share it comes from Bradley Carpenter of Last Lap Marketing and his "Motivational Motorsports Mondays."
