Bad quotes by A.E. Via
#1. Michaels placed the sweetest, most delicate kisses against his jaw while he rubbed his body against him. "I want inside you so damn bad, babe. More than I've ever wanted anything." Michaels emphasized his want with a firm thrust against Judge's ass. Judge gasped and pushed back into it. Hopefully that was enough and Michaels would get the hint. #Quote by A.E. Via

Bad quotes by Natasha Trethewey
#10. The first thing I tried to do in the months after losing my mother was to write a poem. I found myself turning to poetry in the way so many people do - to make sense of losses. And I wrote pretty bad poems about it. But it did feel that the poem was the only place that could hold this grief. #Quote by Natasha Trethewey
Bad quotes by Deborah Meyler
#11. That thing that Hamlet says - "there is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so". Not quite true if you are stuck under a grand piano, not quite true for genocide, but surely it must be true about love? #Quote by Deborah Meyler
Bad quotes by Sue Halpern
#12. It was as if her mind were a theater where bad actors could be run off the stage by a pack of adorable, yelping dogs. #Quote by Sue Halpern
Bad quotes by David Mitchell
#13. Speak to me about power. What is it?"
I do believe I'm being out-Cambridged. "You want me to discuss power? Right here and now?"
Her shapely head tilts. "No time except the present."
"Okay." Only for a ten. "Power is the ability to make someone do what they otherwise wouldn't, or deter them from doing what they otherwise would."
Immaculée Constantin is unreadable. "How?"
"By coercion and reward. Carrots and sticks, though in bad light one looks much like the other. Coercion is predicated upon the fear of violence or suffering. 'Obey, or you'll regret it.' Tenth-century Danes exacted tribute by it; the cohesion of the Warsaw Pact rested upon it; and playground bullies rule by it. Law and order relies upon it. That's why we bang up criminals and why even democracies seek to monopolize force." Immaculée Constantin watches my face as I talk; it's thrilling and distracting. "Reward works by promising 'Obey and benefit.' This dynamic is at work in, let's say, the positioning of NATO bases in nonmember states, dog training, and putting up with a shitty job for your working life. How am I doing?"
Security Goblin's sneeze booms through the chapel.
"You scratch the surface," says Immaculée Constantin.
I feel lust and annoyance. "Scratch deeper, then."
She brushes a tuft of fluff off her glove and appears to address her hand: "Power is lost or won, never created or destroyed. Power is a visitor to, not a possession of, those it empowers. The #Quote by David Mitchell
Bad quotes by Gwyneth Paltrow
#14. We're human beings and the sun is the sun-how can it be bad for you? I don't think anything that's natural can be bad for you #Quote by Gwyneth Paltrow
Bad quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#15. I am a pure-blooded Polish nobleman without a single drop of bad blood - certainly not German blood. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Bad quotes by Walter Hagen
#16. Every golfer can expect to have four bad shots in a round and when you do, just put them out of your mind. This, of course is hard to do when you've had them and you're not even off the first tee. #Quote by Walter Hagen
Bad quotes by Steven Bochco

Bad quotes by Ryan Reynolds
#20. I believe in energy like dark energies. I believe that when a family moves into a house where six murders took place, there's going to be some bad juju in that house. But then again what the hell is wrong with you to be moving in that house to begin with? #Quote by Ryan Reynolds
Bad quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#21. Why read on? Why pick up their book from the far wall where it has been thrown away in disgust and pain, and read on? Why submit to such cruelty, such bad karma, such bad plotting? The reason is simple: these things happened. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Bad quotes by Nina George
#22. The world's rulers should be forced to take a reader's license. Only when they have read five thousand - no, make that ten thousand - books will they be anywhere near qualified to understand humans and how they behave. I often felt better, no longer so bad, fake and unfaithful, when Jean read me bits where good people did nasty things out of love or necessity or their hunger for life. #Quote by Nina George
Bad quotes by Chuck Jones
#23. Every artist has thousands of bad drawings in them and the only way to get rid of them is to draw them out. #Quote by Chuck Jones
Bad quotes by Susan Orlean
#24. Every problem that society has, the library has, too, because the boundary between society and the library is porous; nothing good is kept out of the library, and nothing bad. #Quote by Susan Orlean
Bad quotes by Timothy Keller
#25. While the difference between a bad sermon and a good sermon is mainly the responsibility of the preacher, the difference between good preaching and great preaching lies mainly in the work of the Holy Spirit ... We should do the work it takes to make our communication good and leave it up to God how and how often he makes it great for the listener. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Bad quotes by Rousas John Rushdoony
#26. Man as an Idea in neoplatonist religion is again an abstraction, less a monster and more a bad joke. The religious idea of man is of a bodiless being who works to undo his flesh, deny his appetites, and to rise above the ordinary requirements of the body. This abstraction has a horror of the material world as a kind of fatal allure seeking to corrupt his soul. But no man finds himself more beset by lust than the man who tries to deny he is a man. #Quote by Rousas John Rushdoony
Bad quotes by Charles McCarry
#27. Usually after finishing a novel, I have a head full of bad ideas for the next one. #Quote by Charles McCarry

Bad quotes by Morley Safer
#29. I really feel stateless, which is not bad, because I always felt a man without a country was not encumbered by narrow loyalties. #Quote by Morley Safer
Bad quotes by Nicki Minaj
#30. Being honest, if I had a daughter I wouldn't want her listening to a Nicki Minaj CD until she was a certain age. Even when I meet my fans and they tell me they are 12, I cringe a little. I always say, 'Listen. I don't want you saying the bad words, put school first.' #Quote by Nicki Minaj
Bad quotes by Alan Moore
#31. The dusk reeks of fornication and bad consciences. #Quote by Alan Moore
Bad quotes by Susane Colasanti
#32. Too bad guys aren't like Mr. Potato Head Where you can pick and choose which parts you want. Then we might come up with a guy who meets your standards. #Quote by Susane Colasanti
Bad quotes by Lyssa Kay Adams
#33. Gavin stumbled to the toilet just as something the colour of bad decisions exploded from his mouth. #Quote by Lyssa Kay Adams
Bad quotes by Johan Huizinga
#34. When the world was half a thousand years younger all events had much sharper outlines than now. The distance between sadness and joy, between good and bad fortune, seemed to be much greater than for us; every experience had that degree of directness and absoluteness which joy and sadness still have in the mind of a child #Quote by Johan Huizinga
Bad quotes by Babe Didrikson Zaharias
#35. Good golf is easier to play-and far more pleasant-than bad golf. #Quote by Babe Didrikson Zaharias
Bad quotes by Gregory David Roberts
#36. Mistakes are like bad loves, the more you learn from, the more you wish they'd never happened. #Quote by Gregory David Roberts
Bad quotes by Guy Finley
#37. The next time you catch yourself starting to feel bad about anything, immediately stop everything you are doing for a moment and, as simply and as honestly as you can, ask yourself: Is this what I really want? #Quote by Guy Finley
Bad quotes by Robert Fulghum
#38. There is a tree. At the downhill edge of a long, narrow field in the western foothills of the La Sal Mountains -- southeastern Utah. A particular tree. A juniper. Large for its species -- maybe twenty feet tall and two feet in diameter. For perhaps three hundred years this tree has stood its ground. Flourishing in good seasons, and holding on in bad times. "Beautiful" is not a word that comes to mind when one first sees it. No naturalist would photograph it as exemplary of its kind. Twisted by wind, split and charred by lightning, scarred by brushfires, chewed on by insects, and pecked by birds. Human beings have stripped long strings of bark from its trunk, stapled barbed wire to it in using it as a corner post for a fence line, and nailed signs on it on three sides: NO HUNTING; NO TRESPASSING; PLEASE CLOSE THE GATE. In commandeering this tree as a corner stake for claims of rights and property, miners and ranchers have hacked signs and symbols in its bark, and left Day-Glo orange survey tape tied to its branches. Now it serves as one side of a gate between an alfalfa field and open range. No matter what, in drought, flood heat and cold, it has continued. There is rot and death in it near the ground. But at the greening tips of its upper branches and in its berrylike seed cones, there is yet the outreach of life.

I respect this old juniper tree. For its age, yes. And for its steadfastness in taking whatever is thrown at it. That it has been useful in a practical #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Bad quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#39. No woman will ever satisfy me. I know that now, and I would never try to deny it. But this is actually okay, because I will never satisfy a woman, either. Should I be writing such thoughts? Perhaps not. Perhaps it's a bad idea. I can definitely foresee a scenario where that first paragraph could come back to haunt me, especially if I somehow became marginally famous. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Bad quotes by Augustus Hare
#40. It is a proof of our natural bias to evil, that gain is slower and harder than loss in all things good; but in all things bad getting is quicker and easier than getting rid of. #Quote by Augustus Hare
Bad quotes by Notah Begay III
#41. I realized that the secret to golf isn't how low you shoot when it's going good, it's how to make your bad rounds better. #Quote by Notah Begay III
Bad quotes by Denise Grover Swank
#42. Everything just feels so right when I'm with you, Scarlett. I can be me. But it's more than that. You give me something I haven't had in a long time, if ever. You give me peace. It's like the jumbled mess in my head can settle down, and I can be still with you. Like none of the other stuff matters." His voice catches, and he swallows. "I had a bad day and usually I'd get shitfaced drunk, but the only thing I could think of was I had to see you. #Quote by Denise Grover Swank
Bad quotes by Harry Markowitz
#43. In choosing a portfolio, investors should seek broad diversification, Further, they should understand that equities
and corporate bonds also
involve risk; that markets inevitably fluctuate; and their portfolio should be such that they are willing to ride out the bad as well as the good times. #Quote by Harry Markowitz
Bad quotes by Esther Hicks
#44. If you believe that something is good, and you do it, it benefits you. If you believe that something is bad, and you do it, it is a very detrimental experience. #Quote by Esther Hicks
Bad quotes by Baron Baptiste
#45. I see a real yogi as a someone who is committed to growth and to being the best version of themselves, and, at the same time, is courageous enough to be fully present and authentic in each moment. Someone who is not afraid to get real about the whole mess of who they are - the good, the bad, and the ugly #Quote by Baron Baptiste
Bad quotes by Anjelica Huston
#46. Of course drugs were fun. And that's what's so stupid about anti-drug campaigns: they don't admit that. I can't say I feel particularly scarred or lessened by my experimentation with drugs. They've gotten a very bad name. #Quote by Anjelica Huston
Bad quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#47. Why are you crying?" he asked, trying to push her back far enough to read her face again. But she held on to him, so fiercely she could feel the weapons beneath his clothes. It would all be fine, even if it went to hell, so long as he was here with her. "I'm crying," she sniffled, "because you smell so rutting bad my eyes are watering. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Bad quotes by Norm MacDonald
#48. Note to self: no matter how bad life gets, there's always beer. #Quote by Norm MacDonald
Bad quotes by Edward Heffron
#49. As bad off as we were, as cold as we were, as hungry as we were, as sick as we were, I don't think an American Airborne soldier could throw down his gun. #Quote by Edward Heffron
Bad quotes by Amy Noelle
#50. It's easy to forget all of the bad memories once you've found Mr. Right." Her eyes got that look, and her smile faltered. I cringed. She was thinking of him again. "Then, when you lose him, you still remember the good. And you look for it everywhere, but you can't find it. #Quote by Amy Noelle
Bad quotes by Jennifer Maschari
#51. Elliot couldn't leave behind all the great things that had built her up and made her Elliott. Or the sad things. Dr. Miller has asked them to close their eyes and picture it one time - all the moments that had happened in their lives. Those moments were like their DNA, weaving together the fabric of who they were. They couldn't just cut away the bad stuff and only take the good or else the fabric would be full of holes. That's life, she had said. And you are not Swiss cheese. So when the good comes along, you've got to hold on to it. #Quote by Jennifer Maschari
Bad quotes by Haruki Murakami
#52. He wasn't so bad when the two of us came to see you, though. He was just his usual self."

Because you were there," said Naoko. "He was always like that around you. He struggled to keep his weaknesses hidden. I'm sure he was very fond of you. He made a point of letting you see only his best side. He wasn't like that with me. He'd let his guard down. He could be really moody. One minute he'd be chattering away, and the next thing he'd be depressed. It happened all the time. He was like that from the time he was little. He did keep trying to change himself, to improve himself, though."
Naoko recrossed her legs atop the sofa.
He tried hard, but it didn't do any good, and that would make him really angry and sad. There was so much about him that was fine and beautiful, but he could never find the confidence he needed. "I've got to do that, I've got to change this," he was always thinking, right up to the end. Poor Kizuki!"

Still though," I said, "if it's true that he was always struggling to show me his best side, I'd say he succeeded. His best side was all that I could see."

Naoko smiled. "He'd be thrilled to hear you say that. You were his only friend. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Bad quotes by Robert Cormier
#53. I don't mean to be insolent. I'm truthful. I tell the truth and the truth sometimes hurts. For instance, you have bad breath, Lieutenant. I can smell it from here. It must offend a lot of people. That's the truth. But how many people have told you that? Instead, they either lie or try to avoid your company. #Quote by Robert Cormier
Bad quotes by Sherwood Smith
#54. If you're rebelling, then you must have someone in mind for the throne. Who?"
Bran pointed across the table at Shevraeth. "He seems to want to do it, and I have to say, he'd be better at it than I."
"No, he wouldn't," I said without thinking.
Bran winced and rubbed his chin. "Mel…"
"Please, my dear Lord Branaric," the Prince murmured. "Permit the lady to speak. I am interested to hear her thoughts on the matter."
Rude as I'd been before, my response had shocked even me, and I hadn't intended to say anything more. Now I sneaked a peek at the Marquis, who just sat with his goblet in his fingers, his expression one of mild questioning.
I sighed, short and sharp. "You'd be the best because you aren't Court trained," I said to Bran. It was easier than facing those other two. "Court ruined, I'd say. You don't lie--you don't even know how to lie in social situations like this. I think it's time the kingdom's leader is known for honesty and integrity, not for how well he gambles or how many new fashions he's started. Otherwise we'll just be swapping one type of bad king for another."
Bran drummed his fingers on the table, frowning. "But I don't want to do it. Not alone, anyway. If you are with me--"
"I'm not going to Remalna-city," I said quickly.
All three of them looked at me--I could feel it, though I kept my own gaze on my brother's face. His eyes widened. I said, "You're the one who always wanted to go there. I've been. Once. It's n #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Bad quotes by De Philosopher DJ Kyos
#55. Don't think people are stupid, when they are good to you. They are also capable of doing bad, harmful and hurtful things more than you. They can be more bad, selfish, evil, disrespectful, psychos ,trolling,bully, toxic and meaner than you, but they choose to be good. You too can stop pressing other people's button to test their kindness or patients to see how far can they take it. You can also choose to be good. #Quote by De Philosopher DJ Kyos
Bad quotes by Nigella Lawson
#56. I was brought up an atheist and have always remained so. But at no time was I led to believe that morality was unimportant or that good and bad did not exist. I believe passionately in the need to distinguish between right and wrong and am somewhat confounded by being told I need God, Jesus or a clergyman to help me to do so. #Quote by Nigella Lawson
Bad quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#57. It is my bad luck that this has happened to me.' No, you should rather say: 'It is my good luck that, although this has happened to me, I can bear it without pain, neither crushed by the present not fearful of the future.' Because such a thing could have happened to any man, but not every man could have borne it without pain. So why see more misfortune in the event than good fortune in your ability to bear it? #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Bad quotes by Fred Singer
#58. I am persuaded to think that any climate change is bad because of the investments and adaptations that have been made by human beings and all of the things that support human existence upon this globe. Even minor fluctuations of climate could change the distribution of fish, ... upset agriculture, ... and inundate costal cities ... ... Such changes could occur at a faster rate perhaps than human society can evolve. #Quote by Fred Singer
Bad quotes by Jesse Eisenberg
#59. Poor people are gross and they 'smell bad #Quote by Jesse Eisenberg
Bad quotes by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
#60. As Shantideva says, suffering has many good qualities because it purifies our negative karma, increases our renunciation and compassion, reduces our pride, and helps us to overcome our bad mental habits. If we think in this way we will feel that difficult circumstances are our best friends. When our mind is balanced in this way it becomes as stable as Mount Meru, and nothing can cause it to shake. #Quote by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Bad quotes by Steven Gerrard
#61. If you don't play well, you have a bad game or a nightmare you know that the amount of coverage is worldwide. #Quote by Steven Gerrard
Bad quotes by Robin Hobb
#62. But he became known as a bad luck ship, mockingly called the Pariah. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Bad quotes by A.E. Conran
#63. Tall, pale-skinned, and trained for warfare since childhood, the Celts were fearsome. They spiked up their hair with lime, covered their bodies in dyes or tattoos, ripped off their clothes in battle, and fought totally butt-naked, so mad on war and glory that no one could stop them. The Romans were terrified of the Celts, but they admired them too. Too bad Roman discipline won out in the end. But not tonight... tonight is going to be massive - awesome beyond awesomeness - and my Celts are going to win! #Quote by A.E. Conran
Bad quotes by Timothy B. Tyson
#64. Racism was an important moral issue, one that the church needed to confront. Putting a black man in a position of honor and authority was a good thing, and if there was controversy over it, that was not a bad thing thing, either. People needed to work through these things, and not just in the abstract. #Quote by Timothy B. Tyson
Bad quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#65. Originally and naturally, sexual pleasure was the good, the beautiful, the happy, that which united man with nature in general. When sexual feelings and religious feelings became separated from one another, that which is sexual was forced to become the bad, the internal, the diabolical. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Bad quotes by Rachel Hartman
#66. On a good day, he was friend enough. On a bad day, running into his inadequacy was like tripping up the stairs. It hurt, but it felt like my own fault. #Quote by Rachel Hartman
Bad quotes by Kenya Wright
#67. Melody." His voice was a tormented whisper on his lips.
"Yes," I said.
"If you ever need to escape, come to me."
"What?" I asked.
"Just come. I won't ... I would never hurt you."
"But - "
"You're all that matters to me. #Quote by Kenya Wright

Bad quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#70. If Thomas Jefferson thought taxation without representation was bad, he should see how it is with representation. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Bad quotes by Cate Tiernan
#71. I woke up the next afternoon cotton-mouthed with a splitting, and I do mean splitting, headache. When I raised my head, I half expected to leave large chunks of it on my pillow, like a broken melon.
Sorry. It was a really bad headache. #Quote by Cate Tiernan
Bad quotes by Terry Pratchett
#72. For the enemy is not Troll, nor it is Dwarf, but it is the baleful, the malign, the cowardly, the vessels of hatred, those who do a bad thing and call it good. Those we fought today, but the willful fool is eternal and will say - '" "This is just a trick!" Ardent shouted. "' - say this is a trick,'" Bashfullsson continued, "'and so we implore: come to the caves under this valley, where you will find us sharing the peace that cannot be braken. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Bad quotes by Philip K. Dick
#73. Masochism is more widespread than we realize because it takes an attenuated form. The basic dynamism is as follows: a human being sees something bad which is coming as inevitable. There is no way he can halt the process; he is helpess. This sense of helplessness generates a need to gain some control over the impending pain -- any kind of control will do. This makes sense; the subjective feeling of helplessness is more painful than the impending misery. So the person seizes control over the situation in the only way open to him: he connives to bring on the impending misery; he hastens it. This activity on his part promotes the false impression that he enjoys pain. Not so. It is simply that he cannot any longer endure the helplessness or the supposed helplessness. But in the process of gaining control over the inevitable misery he becomes, automatically, anhedonic. Anhedonia sets in stealthily. Over the years it takes control of him. For example, he learns to defer gratification; this is a step in the dismal process of anhedonia. In learning to defer he gratification he experiences a sense of self-mastery; he has become stoic, disciplined; he does not give way to impulse. He has "control". Control over himself in terms of his impulses and control over the external situation. He is a controlled and controlling person. Pretty soon he has branched out and is controlling other people, as part of the situation. He becomes a manipulator. Of course, he is not conciousily aware of this #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Bad quotes by Cara Marsi
#74. All our memories aren't bad, are they, Dorie? #Quote by Cara Marsi
Bad quotes by Erma Bombeck
#75. The bad times I can handle. It's the good times that drive me crazy. When is the other shoe going going to drop? #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Bad quotes by Jorge Valdano
#76. Playing against a defensive opponent is just as bad as making love to a tree. #Quote by Jorge Valdano
Bad quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#77. When we are crazy busy, we put our souls at risk. The challenge is not merely to make a few bad habits go away. The challenge is to not let our spiritual lives slip away. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Bad quotes by Patrick Wilson
#78. In a normal movie, you'd never see one guy talk for an entire page, whether good or bad. #Quote by Patrick Wilson
Bad quotes by Amy Engel
#79. I didn't have a bad childhood, but there was no magic in it. No one hit me, no one neglected me, but there wasn't much that was childlike about it. Even fun involved barely disguised lessons about my future and my father's plans. It is only now, away from the presence of my family, that I can admit that to myself. #Quote by Amy Engel
Bad quotes by George R R Martin
#80. Books should broaden us, take us to places we have never been and show us things we've never seen, expand our horizons and our way of looking at the world. Limiting your reading to a single genre defeats that. It limits us, makes us smaller. It seemed to me, then as now, that there were good stories and bad stories, and that was the only distinction that truly mattered. #Quote by George R R Martin
Bad quotes by John Elder Robison
#81. As a logical thinker, I cannot help thinking, based on the evidence, that many people who exhibit dramatic reactions to bad news involving strangers are hypocrites. #Quote by John Elder Robison
Bad quotes by Carlos Wallace
#82. Think of the principle as that precise moment you recall everything that makes you love that person: the number of times your partner makes you smile, comforts and supports you. During those times dig deep and shift your focus from whatever bad is happening today, at this minute, and appreciate every other day, hour and second that person spends being "the one. #Quote by Carlos Wallace
Bad quotes by Linda Poindexter
#83. Refuse to ruin a perfectly good today by thinking about a bad yesterday #Quote by Linda Poindexter
Bad quotes by Naresh Soni
#84. Karma is like boomerang, bad the karma bigger the force. #Quote by Naresh Soni

Bad quotes by Garrett Hedlund

Bad quotes by Mike Birbiglia
#88. First time films are hard. Even with some of the greatest directors, you look back at their first film, and you are just going, 'That movie is kind of bad.' #Quote by Mike Birbiglia
Bad quotes by Cassandra Clare
#89. The vampires start to close in. "shouldn't we stand back to back or something?" Clary said.
"What? Why?"
"I don't know. In movies that's what they do in this kind of ... situation."
Jace laughs, "You, you are the most-"
The most what?" Clary demands indignantly.
Jace: Nothing. This isn't a situation okay? I save that word for when things get really bad."
"Really bad? This isn't really bad? What do you want, a nuclear-"
The windows exploded inward in a shower of broken glass. Through the shattered windows came dozens of sleek shapes, four footed and low to the ground, their coats scattering moonlight and broken bits of glass.
Wolves.
"Now, this," said Jace, "is a situation #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Bad quotes by John Clare
#90. The best way to avoid a bad action is by doing a good one, for there is no difficulty in the world like that of trying to do nothing. #Quote by John Clare

Bad quotes by Psyche Roxas-Mendoza
#92. Beware! Balance rules the cosmos. It is not concerned with good or bad. You can be struck by misfortune and be buried in grief if that is what it takes to restore the imbalance you have wrought unto the world. #Quote by Psyche Roxas-Mendoza
Bad quotes by Charlie Munger
#93. A lot of success in life and business comes from knowing what you want to avoid: early death, a bad marriage, etc. #Quote by Charlie Munger

Bad quotes by Linda Howard
#96. He didn't believe in miracles. If he'd had any philosophy in life in ran along the lines of the classic shit happens. Usually it was bad shit, sometimes it was good shit, but it was always random shit. You lived your life, & when the run was ended, that was it. Nothing. #Quote by Linda Howard
Bad quotes by Donny Osmond
#97. I am not going to condemn anybody. That's where religion gets a bad name, when people get holier than thou. We are all human. If my children make a mistake, I want them to know it is all right and they should try harder next time. #Quote by Donny Osmond
Bad quotes by Paulo Coelho
#98. The beauty of truth: whether it is bad or good, it is liberating. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Bad quotes by Veronica Roth
#99. Want something else more than success. Success is a lovely thing, but your desire to say something, your worth, and your identity shouldn't rely on it, because it's not guaranteed and it's not permanent and it's not sufficient. So work hard, fall in love with the writing - the characters, the story, the words, the themes - and make sure that you are who you are regardless of your life circumstances. That way, when the good things come, they don't warp you, and when the bad things hit you, you don't fall apart. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Bad quotes by Joan Ambu
#100. To understand the phenomenon of a bad seed is to recognize that we could be someone else's bad seed. #Quote by Joan Ambu
Bad quotes by Hans Holzer
#101. There are several cats smoothly moving about, which helped me greatly to relax, for I have always felt that no house is wholly bad where there are cats, and conversely, where there are several cats, a house is bound to be wonderfully charming. #Quote by Hans Holzer
Bad quotes by Jimmy Carter
#102. There's a common perception among college administrators that they should conceal the high level of sexual assaults that take place on their campuses because it would bring discredit to the university, bring them a bad name if it was publicized. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Bad quotes by Ammon Hennacy
#103. Oh judge! Your damn laws! The good people don't need them, and the bad people don't obey them. #Quote by Ammon Hennacy
Bad quotes by Lucille Clifton
#104. I do not feel inhibited or bound by what I am. That does not mean that I have never had bad scenes relating to being Black and/or a woman, it means that other people's craziness has not managed to make me crazy. #Quote by Lucille Clifton
Bad quotes by Gary Clark, Jr.
#105. I was just a very emotional player. I wore my emotions on my sleeve. I pretty much told you how I felt. I didn't mince words, so to speak. If I felt bad, I let you know that I felt bad. If I felt you were playing sorry, I told you. If I was playing sorry, I told myself that. I came from an era when losing really hurt. I didn't see anything good about it. #Quote by Gary Clark, Jr.
Bad quotes by Neil Leckman
#106. They say that time is relative. I think the way it's treating me it's a distant one, maybe a bad uncle, and not welcome in my house this Christmas!! #Quote by Neil Leckman
Bad quotes by Sheila Heti
#107. Sholem [a painter] was saying that freedom, for him, is having the technical facility to be able to execute whatever he wants, just whatever image he has in his mind. But that's not freedom! That's control, or power. Whereas I think Margaux understands freedom to be the freedom to take risks, the freedom to do something bad or appear foolish. To not recognize that difference is a pretty big thing. [ ... ]
"It's like with improv," Misha said. "True improv is about surprising yourself
but most people won't improvise truthfully. They're afraid. What they do is pull from their bag of tricks. They take what they already know how to do and apply it to the present situation. But that's cheating! And cheating's bad for an artist. It's bad in life
but it's really bad in art." -p.20-1, How Should A Person Be #Quote by Sheila Heti
Bad quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#108. And in fact you're not like everyone else: you weren't ashamed just now to confess bad and even ridiculous things about yourself. Who would confess such things nowadays? No one, and people have even stopped feeling any need for self-judgment. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Bad quotes by Dorothy Stratten
#109. If someone's going to talk about me, I'd want it to be positively. The way many write, you'd think only bad things were interesting. If we don't think positive, what's the use? It's a lot more fun, you know. #Quote by Dorothy Stratten

Bad quotes by Gabrielle Zevin
#114. Lights, bright enough to dilate her eyes. Horns, flaccid and come too late. Metal crumpling like tissue. The body was not in pain but only because the body was gone, elsewhere. Yes, Daniel thinks just after impact but before death, like that. The passage hadn't been as bad as he had thought. #Quote by Gabrielle Zevin
Bad quotes by Joseph Addison
#115. There is no greater sign of a bad cause, than when the patrons of it are reduced to the necessity of making use of the most wicked artifices to support it. #Quote by Joseph Addison

#118. feel like we're taking a bad trip down a yellow brick road, but what waits for us behind that curtain is no charlatan, rather an enormously powerful, staggeringly dangerous wizard of chaos. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Bad quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#119. Someone will say, "I did not ask to be born." This is a naive way of throwing greater emphasis on our facticity. I am responsible for everything, in fact,
except for my very responsibility, for I am not the foundation of my being. Therefore everything takes place as if I were compelled to be responsible. I am abandoned in the world, not in the sense that I might remain abandoned and passive in a hostile universe like a board floating on the water, but rather in the sense that I find myself suddenly alone and without help, engaged in a world for which I bear the whole responsibility without being able, whatever I do, to tear myself away from this responsibility for an instant. For I am responsible for my very desire of fleeing responsibilities. To make myself passive in the world, to refuse to act upon things and upon Others is still to choose myself, and suicide is one mode among others of being-in-the-world. Yet I find an absolute responsibility for the fact that my facticity (here the fact of my birth) is directly inapprehensible and even inconceivable, for this fact of my birth never appears as a brute fact but always across a projective reconstruction of my for-itself. I am ashamed of being born or I am astonished at it or I rejoice over it, or in attempting to get rid of my life I affirm that I live and I assume this life as bad. Thus in a certain sense I choose being born. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Bad quotes by Cate Tiernan
#120. No, officer, I have no idea why I'm wearing this possum costume. I called you what? OH. My bad.

Bad quotes by Diana Trilling
#121. In the bad sixties, when drugs came into widespread use among adolescents and when Scarsdale mothers developed the habit of not asking about each others children for fear of what they'd hear, one knew that they were speaking-or not speaking, keeping their unhappy silence-on behalf of stricken motherhood everywhere in the country. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Bad quotes by James Dashner
#122. A small hole in his shirt revealed a gooey red blob right in the meaty part above his armpit, blood pouring from the wound. It hurt. It hurt bad. If he'd thought his headache downstairs had been tough, this was like three or four of those, all smashed into a coil of pain right there in his shoulder. And spreading through the rest of his body.
Newt was at his side, looking down with worried eyes.
"He shot me." It just came out, a new number one on the list of the dumbest things he'd ever said. The pain, like living metal staples running through his insides, pricking and scratching with their little sharp points. He felt his mind going dark for the second time that day. #Quote by James Dashner
Bad quotes by Giovannie De Sadeleer
#123. Never give up on someone who is having a bad day. Tomorrow could be yours. #Quote by Giovannie De Sadeleer

Bad quotes by Avi Steinberg
#129. An officer on an elevator in the Tower once told me he was proud of his job keeping bad guys out of society. "Someone's gotta do it, right?" - but that didn't stop him from going to church every week, for almost twenty years now, and confessing to what he called "the sin of locking a human being in a cage. #Quote by Avi Steinberg
Bad quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#130. The theory of behavior is useful to the life of man only as the index is useful to him who goes through it before reading the book itself; when he has read it, all that he has learned is the subject matter. Such is the moral teaching that we receive from the discourses, the precepts, and the stories we are treated to by those who bring us up. We listen to it all attentively; but when we have an opportunity to profit by the various advice we have been given, we become possessed by a desire to see if the thing will turn out to be what we have been told it will; we do it, and we are punished by repentance. What recompenses us a little is that in such moments we consider ourselves wise and hence entitled to teach others. Those whom we teach do exactly as we did, from which it follows that the world always stands still or goes from bad to worse. #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
Bad quotes by Ann Patchett
#131. It's like a big circle. I've gone on a get-a-man crusade, but so far it's been a disaster and I'm feeling as bad about myself as I ever have. I know I'm a great person and all that, a good friend, but I feel like real bottom of the barrel girlfriend material. #Quote by Ann Patchett
Bad quotes by John Irving
#132. It's like reading a bad newspaper or a bad piece in a magazine.
(on Tom Wolfe) #Quote by John Irving
Bad quotes by Anne Bronte
#133. I was sorry for her; I was amazed, disgusted at her heartless vanity; I wondered why so much beauty should be given to those who made so bad a use of it, and denied to some who would make it a benefit to both themselves and others.
But, God knows best, I concluded. There are, I suppose, some men as vain, as selfish, and as heartless as she is, and, perhaps, such women may be useful to punish them. #Quote by Anne Bronte
Bad quotes by Amy Reed
#134. There is a picture of me in their heads, a picture of someone I don't know yet. She is not the chubby girl with the braces and bad perm. She is not the girl hiding in the bathroom at recess. She is someone new, a blank slate they have named beautiful. That is what I am now: beautiful, with this new body and face and hair and clothes. Beautiful, with this erasing of history. #Quote by Amy Reed
Bad quotes by Jack Dunphy
#135. Success is so bad for everybody, period. Especially a certain kind of success, when people practically give up their identity. They forget who they are, how they are. #Quote by Jack Dunphy
Bad quotes by Kristine Carlson
#136. All pain in life comes from wishing things were different than they are. Conversely, peace and happiness must come from accepting life as it is and breaking through the barriers of illusion to do so ... All things that we label good or bad often hold in them surprises if we stay open. Each of us has choice in how we interpret life's events and in this way we are each responsible for our own reality. #Quote by Kristine Carlson
Bad quotes by J.C. Wickhart
#137. I'm only guilty of having good hygiene and making bad decisions. #Quote by J.C. Wickhart
Bad quotes by Dennis Hopper
#138. I am just a middle-class farm boy from Dodge City and my grandparents were wheat farmers. I thought painting, acting, directing and photography were all part of being an artist. I have made my money that way. And I have had some fun. It's not been a bad life. #Quote by Dennis Hopper
Bad quotes by Patricia T. O'Conner
#139. If the good news from cyberspace is that we're writing more, the bad news is that most of us aren't very good at it. Our words don't do justice to our ideas. #Quote by Patricia T. O'Conner

Bad quotes by Marc Faber
#142. This is the choice in life. You choose what is less bad. I don't particularly like Mr. Obama, but I think he is less bad for the world than Mr. Romney. It is a tragedy of life that both candidates did not lose the election. They would have deserved both to lose. #Quote by Marc Faber

Bad quotes by Carlos Fuentes
#145. I don't think any good book is based on factual experience. Bad books are about things the writer already knew before he wrote them.

Bad quotes by Allison Williams
#146. One of my favorite things to do is to play music really loud and dance my butt off in the morning. I'll do it alone in my apartment. You can't have a bad day after that. #Quote by Allison Williams
Bad quotes by Seth Godin
#147. The answer to the question "where do good ideas come from" is always the same, the come from bad ideas. If you come up with 20 bad ideas you get one good one. #Quote by Seth Godin

Bad quotes by Rachel Caine
#149. Claire, I-Look, my life is one long series of screw-ups and bad decisions, and I know that. I own that. But you ... I just want you to be happy. And it cuts me when you're not."
"I'm happy with you."
She heard the smile in his voice this time. "So what do you really want? A storybook life in Vampireville, with your life on the line every day and a half?"
"I'm considering it," she said. And she was. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Bad quotes by David Baldacci
#150. In every thriller written about Washington, particularly after 9/11, there are good guys and there are bad guys, and there's no gray area at all. #Quote by David Baldacci
Bad quotes by Mark Haddon
#151. Children simply don't make the distinction; a book is either good or bad. And some of the books they think are good are very, very bad indeed. #Quote by Mark Haddon
Bad quotes by April Brookshire
#152. Jeez, that's the most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me," I replied sarcastically. "No wonder you don't have a girlfriend."

"You shouldn't say bad words."
"I didn't just say a bad word." His serious demeanor was confusing me.

"Yes you did. You said the G-word," he whispered. "Girlfriend." His fake shudder was over the top.

"You're horrible, do you know that? A complete player."
"I know, but if I did want to enter the form of slavery called being in a relationship, it'd be with someone as hot as you."

I glared up at him. "Wow, that was the second most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me. You're on a roll, Caleb. #Quote by April Brookshire
Bad quotes by Julia Sweeney
#153. I was on stage and I was like I will pay someone to do my time, not only will I expect NOT to be paid, but I will pay someone if I can run off stage right now. It was so bad. #Quote by Julia Sweeney
Bad quotes by Sunny
#154. For me, each of SNSD members is like my own body. If one gets hurts or hears bad things from someone else, it hurts me and pains me even more. And you know, it's impossible for only good things to happen to someone, so there will always be difficult and hurtful times; but during these times, I'm thankful that we're each other's supports and each other's strength. I hope in the future, we'll continue to lean on each other and be strong for each other. Also, when we need encouragement, we'll continue to look for each other too. #Quote by Sunny
Bad quotes by Anonymous
#155. 216. Jihaad (holy fighting in Allaah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allaah knows but you do not know. #Quote by Anonymous
Bad quotes by Ali Harris
#156. Is there such a thing as a life without any regrets? I've never believed so. We spend our lives aiming for happiness and fulfilment in work, in love and with our friends and family, and yet often our energy is spent lamenting bad boyfriends, wrong career turns, fallouts with friends and opportunities missed. Or is that just me? I admit I'm naturally a glass-half-empty kind of girl, but I know regrets are a burden to happiness and I'm trying to let go of them because I've learned that it's all about choice. You can choose to turn regrets into lessons that change your future. Believe me when I say I'm really trying to do this. But the truth is, I'm failing. Because all I can think right now is: maybe I deserve it. Maybe this is my penance. #Quote by Ali Harris
Bad quotes by Franca Storm
#157. Nothing your dirty little mouth can't resuscitate."

Bad quotes by David Quammen
#159. Lyme disease, psittacosis, Q fever: These three differ wildly in their particulars but share two traits in common. They are all zoonotic and they are all bacterial. They stand as reminders that not every bad, stubborn, new bug is a virus. #Quote by David Quammen
Bad quotes by Ron Brackin

Bad quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#163. The words 'bad timing' came to be ghosts haunting our every move in Birmingham. Yet people who used this argument were ignorant of the background of our planning ... they did not realize that it was ridiculous to speak of timing when the clock of history showed that the Negro had already suffered one hundred years of delay. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.

Bad quotes by Kelly Minter
#165. I think we would do much better as a whole if we focused more compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience than on how all the non-Christians are ruining society with their bad behavior and politics. #Quote by Kelly Minter
Bad quotes by Helen Keller
#166. To be blind is bad, but worse is to have eyes and not see. #Quote by Helen Keller
Bad quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#167. Therefore, a prudent ruler ought not to keep faith when by so doing it would be against his interest, and when the reasons which made him bind himself no longer exist. If men were all good, this precept would not be a good one; but as they are bad, and would not observe their faith with you, so you are not bound to keep faith with them. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Bad quotes by Mark McGwire
#168. My message is that steroids is bad. Don't do them. It's a bad message. #Quote by Mark McGwire
Bad quotes by David Benatar
#169. It is not the case that one can create new people on the assumption that if they are not pleased to have come into existence they can simply kill themselves. Once somebody has come into existence and attachments with that person have been formed, suicide can cause the kind of pain that makes the pain of childlessness mild by comparison. Somebody contemplating suicide knows (or should know) this. This places an important obstacle in the way of suicide. One's life may be bad, but one must consider what affect ending it would have on one's family and friends. There will be times when life has become so bad that it is unreasonable for the interests of the loved ones in having the person alive to outweigh that person's interests in ceasing to exist. When this is true will depend in part on particular features of the person for whom continued life is a burden. Different people are able to bear different magnitudes of burden. It may even be indecent for family members to expect that person to continue living. On other occasions one's life may be bad but not so bad as to warrant killing oneself and thereby making the lives of one's family and friends still much worse than they already are. #Quote by David Benatar
Bad quotes by David Byrne
#170. Often I don't know what the song means until it's finished. Sometimes months later. I don't think that's bad. It implies that I don't know what I'm doing but-I think if you're able to follow your instincts, then that's knowing what you're doing. #Quote by David Byrne
Bad quotes by Marquis De Sade
#171. Those laws, being forged for universal application, are in perpetual conflict with personal interest, just as personal interest is always in contradiction with the general interest. Good for society, our laws are very bad for the individuals whereof it is composed; for, if they one time protect the individual, they hinder, trouble, fetter him for three quarters of his life. #Quote by Marquis De Sade
Bad quotes by S.C. Stephens
#172. Kiera was a scar across my heart that would never fully heal, no matter how many random encounters I placed across it. My poor imitations of her were only ripping open the wound again and again. Good or bad, she was forever a part of me. Kellan Kyle #Quote by S.C. Stephens
Bad quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#173. It's bad taste to be wise all the time, like being at a perpetual funeral. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Bad quotes by Paul Levy
#174. The ego isn't a bad thing. If we didn't develop a strong ego, a strong sense of self, we wouldn't be able to relate to and engage with the extremely powerful and archetypal forces (both dark and light) of the unconscious. If we don't have a strongly developed sense of self (even though it is not, ultimately speaking, the true self), we will get overwhelmed and taken over by the powers of the unconscious such that we will compulsively act them out. #Quote by Paul Levy
Bad quotes by David Liss

Bad quotes by Peter Gleick

Bad quotes by T.H. White
#177. It happened like this in the world. Old things lost their grip and dropped away; not always because they were bad things, but sometimes because the new things were more bad, and stronger. #Quote by T.H. White
Bad quotes by Irving Kirsch
#178. Our analyses of the FDA data showed relatively little difference between the effects of antidepressants and the effects of placebos. Indeed, the effects were so small that they did not qualify as clinically significant. The drug companies knew how small the effect of their medications were compared to placebos, and so did the FDA and other regulatory agencies. The companies found various ways to make the data seem more favorable to their products, and the FDA helped them keep their negative data secret. In fact, in some instances, the FDA urged the companies to keep negative data hidden, even when the companies wanted to reveal them. My colleagues and I hadn't really discovered anything new. We had merely revealed their 'dirty little secret'. #Quote by Irving Kirsch
Bad quotes by Woody Harrelson
#179. You know, I was on 'Cheers' for eight years, and I couldn't get another job, and I thought, 'I'm going to be Woody Boyd forever.' Which is not bad, but I really thought I was capable of more. #Quote by Woody Harrelson
Bad quotes by Scott Adams
#180. If you drill down on any success story, you always discover that luck was a huge part of it. You can't control luck, but you can move from a game with bad odds to one with better odds. You can make it easier for luck to find you. The most useful thing you can do is stay in the game. #Quote by Scott Adams
Bad quotes by Annie Baker
#181. I will say that meeting him was like walking out of a dark wood. He's not perfect and I'm not perfect and we have our hard times but I remember moving towards him through Terminal 4 and it was like emerging from the cold and into the sun.
Like waking up from the bad dream that was my life before him.
And all the confusion and fear and self-hatred that I'd always felt in the presence of other people...
I was shedding it like a skin.
The spell had ended.
And I remember thinking: everything is possible.
If this is possible, anything is possible. #Quote by Annie Baker
Bad quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#182. So you see, old age is really not so bad. May you come to know the condition! #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Bad quotes by Peter A. Levine Ph.D.
#183. In contrast to ordinary memories both good and bad, which are mutable and dynamically changing over time, traumatic memories are fixed and static. They're imprints, engrams from past overwhelming experiences. Deep impressions carved into the sufferer's brain body and psyche. These harsh and frozen imprints do not yield to change, nor do they readily update with current information. The fixity of imprints prevents us from forming new strategies and extracting new meanings. There is no fresh ever-changing now, and no real flow in life. In this way, the past lives on in the present. #Quote by Peter A. Levine Ph.D.
Bad quotes by Tahar Ben Jelloun
#184. But bad manners or vulgar gestures can sometimes have a touch of poetry about them, just enough not to arouse one's indignation. #Quote by Tahar Ben Jelloun
Bad quotes by Jennifer E. Smith
#185. This," I say softly, "is going to change everything."
I don't mean it the way I usually do.
I don't mean that change is hard or scary, though it's definitely both.
I mean only to say this: that sometimes, through good luck or bad, through curses or fate, the world cracks itself open, and afterward nothing will ever be the same.
All I mean is that this seems like one of those times. #Quote by Jennifer E. Smith
Bad quotes by David Leslie Johnson
#186. In college, one of my favorite classes was a six-week class watching horror movies. 'The Bad Seed' was one of them and was the first time I had seen it, and I really fell in love with it. #Quote by David Leslie Johnson
Bad quotes by Alessandra Torre
#187. I glanced back down at my bathing suit, thought about my house, the dirty dishes in the sink, my tampon box on top of the toilet, the remnants of Ben's and my mani-pedi party still on the coffee table, mail scattered on the table ... this was bad. I took off running, the white-linen-panted gay close on my water-pruned heels. #Quote by Alessandra Torre
Bad quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#188. The absolute pacifist is a bad citizen; times come when force must be used to uphold right, justice and ideals. #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
Bad quotes by Laurence Fishburne
#189. I've played a lot of bad guys, 'cause that was the only work I could get. People saw my face and went 'oooh'. #Quote by Laurence Fishburne
Bad quotes by J.T. Geissinger
#190. One of the first shrinks I went to after Cass died told me that the brain has a hardwired need to find correlations, to make sense of nonsensical data by making connections between unrelated things. Humans have evolved a universal tendency to seek patterns in random information, hence the existence of fortune-tellers and dream interpreters and people who see the face of Jesus in a piece of toast. But the cold, hard truth is that there are no connections between anything. Life - all of existence - is totally random. Your lucky lottery numbers aren't really lucky, because there's no such thing as luck. The black cat that crosses your path isn't a bad omen, it's just a cat out for a walk. An eclipse doesn't mean that the gods are angry, just as a bus narrowly missing you as you cross the street doesn't mean there's a guardian angel looking out for you. There are no gods. There are no angels. Superstitions aren't real, and no amount of wishing, praying, or rationalizing can change the fact that life is just one long sequence of random events that ultimately have no meaning. I really hated that shrink. #Quote by J.T. Geissinger

Bad quotes by Jerry A. Coyne
#194. or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil - that takes religion." He did not mean, of course, that religion turns all good people bad, but merely some of them, #Quote by Jerry A. Coyne
Bad quotes by James O'Shaughnessy
#195. Historically, we have always seen reversion to the mean. After stocks have had an unusually great 10 or 20 years, they typically turn in subpar results over the next 10 or 20, and after bad 10- to 20-year stretches, the next 10 to 20 tend to be above average. #Quote by James O'Shaughnessy
Bad quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#196. Because the opposite of fascism isn't anarchy, it's theater. When the world is fucked, you go to the theater, you go to the shine, and when the bad men come, all there is left to do is sing them down. #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Bad quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#197. ...while epic fantasy is based on the fairy tale of the just war, that's not one you'll find in Grimm or Disney, and most will never recognize the shape of it. I think the fantasy genre pitches its tent in the medieval campground for the very reason that we even bother to write stories about things that never happened in the first place: because it says something subtle and true about our own world, something it is difficult to say straight out, with a straight face. Something you need tools to say, you need cheat codes for the human brain--a candy princess or a sugar-coated unicorn to wash down the sour taste of how bad things can really get.

See, I think our culture has a slash running through the middle of it, too. Past/Future, Conservative/Liberal, Online/Offline. Virgin/Whore. And yes: Classical/Medieval. I think we're torn between the Classical Narrative of Self and the Medieval Narrative of Self, between the choice of Achilles and Keep Calm and Carry On.

The Classical internal monologue goes like this: do anything, anything, only don't be forgotten. Yes, this one sacrificed his daughter on a slab at Aulis, that one married his mother and tore out his eyes, and oh that guy ate his kids in a pie. But you remember their names, don't you? So it's all good in the end. Give a Greek soul a choice between a short life full of glory and a name echoing down the halls of time and a long, gentle life full of children and a quiet sort of virtue, and he'll alwa #Quote by Catherynne M.

Bad quotes by Janina Gavankar
#198. I want to do a musical so bad. I don't care what it is. I'm not picky. I just want to do a musical. I'm shameless, but it's true. #Quote by Janina Gavankar
Bad quotes by John Fogerty
#199. I work hard at that, but the fact that there are a lot of good songs means there are also a lot of really bad songs I've written that you never hear. #Quote by John Fogerty
Bad quotes by Patrick F. McManus
#200. Pap said, "Lend me those bolt cutters, Bo"
"They're in the back of the Explorer."
The old man got out the bolt cutter, walked around and snipped one of the leads to the battery on each of the ATV's. The others stood in the darkness watching him, listening to the snip-snip of the bolt cutter.
"Not a bad idea," said Dave. "That way is any of them get past us, he's going to be on foot."
"There's that," Tully said. "And then there's the fact that the old man loves bolt cutters... #Quote by Patrick F. McManus
