Budd Schulberg, all'anagrafe Seymour Wilson Schulberg , è stato uno sceneggiatore e scrittore statunitense.

„Il silenzio è il segno evidente che sei sulla strada per Hollywood.“

„Ehi, vuoi sapere la mia filosofia di vita? Fallo a lui prima che lui lo faccia a te!“

„Vivere con coscienza è come guidare un'auto coi freni pigiati.“

„Coscienza. Quella roba può farti impazzire.“

„I combattimenti possono essere condotti in molti modi diversi. A volte tutti, ad eccezione del lottatore, conoscono il modo, altre volte lo conosce soltanto chi combatte.“

„Isn't everyone a part of everyone else?“

„I’d like to be remembered as someone who used their ability as a novelist or as a dramatist to say the things he felt needed to be said about the society while being as entertaining as possible. Because if you don’t entertain, nobody’s listening.“

„They looked at each other until they weren't acquaintances any longer.“ What Makes Sammy Run?

„I thought of Sammy Glick rocking in his cradle of hate, malnutrition, prejudice, suspicions, amorality, the anarchy of the poor; I thought of him as a mangy puppy in a dog-eat-dog world. I was modulating my hate for Sammy Glick from the personal to the societal. I no longer even hated Rivington Street but the idea of Rivington Street, all Rivington Streets of all nationalities allowed to pile up in cities like gigantic dung heaps smelling up the world, ambitions growing out of filth and crawling away like worms. I saw Sammy Glick on a battlefield where every soldier was his own cause, his own army and his own flag, and I realized that I had singled him out not because he had been born into the world anymore selfish, ruthless and cruel than anybody else, even though he had become all three, but because in the midst of a war that was selfish, ruthless and cruel Sammy was proving himself the fittest and the fiercest and the fastest.“ What Makes Sammy Run?

„Work hard, and if you can't work hard, be smart; and, if you can't be smart, be loud.“ What Makes Sammy Run?

„Most of us are ready to greet our worst enemies like long-lost brothers if we think they can show us a good time, if we think they can do us any good or if we even reach the conclusion that being polite will get us just as far and help us live longer.“ What Makes Sammy Run?

„I suppose it's too bad people can't be a little more consistent. But if they were, maybe they would stop being people.“ What Makes Sammy Run?

„I believed him because the truth is never hard to recognize. Nothing is ever quite so drab and repetitious and forlorn and ludicrous as truth.“ What Makes Sammy Run?

„I coulda' had class. I coulda' been a contender! But instead I got a one way ticket to Palookaville.“ On the Waterfront: A Screenplay

„¡A la mierda! ¡El que quiera leer a Rimbaud que aprenda francés!“

„When we left, the sun was taking its evening dip, slipping down into the ocean inch by inch like a fat woman afraid of the water.“ What Makes Sammy Run?
