"He's the most impatient person I've ever met and probably will ever meet." --Caroline Gray quoted in The Philadelphia Inquirer, November 28, 1999.
On his turning to the classics for inspiration, Halmi told The Philadelphia Inquirer (November 28, 1999): "I could say I want to bring literature to the American audience. But even though I am seriously and consistently shocked by the shallowness of American education, that's bulls--t."
Halmi has 25 different phone numbers at his various homes. He told Vanity Fair (October 1998): "No matter where I am, I'm on the goddamned phone."
