Betrayal quotes by Gemma Files
#1. Morrow's rush of disgust, temporary as it might prove, had nothing to do with the truths-turned-insults flung out. No. What riled Morrow ran far deeper - was the sheer perversity of Chess's own nature, that unbreakable wilfulness he'd always revered in himself, as sign and source of his own freedom. His stark refusal ever to be bound, to obey aught but his own whim and want.

Because while he could walk free and hold a gun Chess Pargeter answered to no man - no man, no law, no damn body, motherfucker. No ideal, no cause, no force but sheer chaos, bound and determined to move unimpeded and burn for the sake of burning. To never submit himself to ghost or hex or priest or even God, 'less he damn well wanted to.

No man except Ash Rook, that was - for a time. And after this last betrayal, from now on... not even him.

'Course not, Morrow's anger spoke back, unimpressed by Chess's well-tuned inner litany. That's 'cause you're nothing but a brat who never grew up - a skillet-hopping little hot-pants who knows everything 'bout killing and nothing at all 'bout living. Who spits on friendship, duty and honour not 'cause he's above them, so much as 'cause he don't know what they even mean - same way you don't really grasp how anything's real, 'cept if you want it, or it hurts you. And that's why you ended up givin' everything you had to a man who skinned you alive, then left you stranded down in Hell - 'cause he was what you wanted, and Christ forbid Ches #Quote by Gemma Files
Betrayal quotes by Frederick Weisel
#2. Of course, when you fall out of love, it's rarely about just one failure or one betrayal, is it? ...
How does it happen? All those things you once loved about each other are replaced by other things that remind you of something you hate until you're always setting each other off, and what you share is a battleground. In the end, the failure turns out to be less about sex - which surprises most men - and more about loss of respect. One morning your partner looks at you across the bed and wonders at the waywardness of her own heart - how, she asks herself, can she feel such disdain for someone she once felt such love? #Quote by Frederick Weisel
Betrayal quotes by Robert Stephens
#3. The family of Dane Heggem has been betrayed. #Quote by Robert Stephens
Betrayal quotes by Warren W. Wiersbe
#4. God is not in a hurry. He kept Abraham and Sarah waiting twenty-five years before Issac was born, and Issac and Rebekah waited twenty years for Esau and Jacob, Jacob had to wait fourteen years to get the bride he really wanted, and then he had to serve six more years to build up his flocks so he could be independent, a total of twenty years. Twenty-two years passed between Joseph's betrayal by his brothers and the brothers' reconciliation in Egypt. God is not in a hurry because all His works are done in love. "Love is patient, love is kind" (1 Cor.13:4). Let's be grateful that God takes His time. #Quote by Warren W. Wiersbe
Betrayal quotes by Joss Whedon
#5. I go to movies expecting to have a whole experience. If I want a movie that doesn't end, I'll go to a French movie. That's a betrayal of trust to me. A movie has to be complete within itself; it can't just build off the first one or play variations. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Betrayal quotes by Lyna Jones
#6. Our ability to transcend betrayal is directly tied to our willingness to identify ourselves as love activists rather than victims of the Universe. #Quote by Lyna Jones
Betrayal quotes by Rae Carson
#7. Prophecy is a tricky thing, I have learned, full of edges and secret meanings and mischief. Prophecy can feel like the betrayal of a dear friends, the disappointment of a lifetime, the hope of a nation. #Quote by Rae Carson
Betrayal quotes by Aldous Mercer
#8. There weren't enough espresso in the world to wash the sour taste of betrayal out of my mouth. #Quote by Aldous Mercer
Betrayal quotes by Megan McCafferty
#9. Well, I think it's possible to love someone and still be curious about someone else. And I think you should be able to act on that impulse without impunity. But in our society, where monogamy rules despite all the evidence that it doesn't work, a person is demonized for wanting to break from that traditional model of relationships. I think you can love someone, truly love someone, and still be drawn to someone
else. Enough to want to kiss that other person, just to see what it would be like. Or maybe to help confirm that what you've got is better than what else is out there. Because isn't the desire alone a form of betrayal? So what further harm does it do to put those thoughts into action? Ideally, you would be able just to go back to the person you love after you've kissed that other person and discovered it wasn't as
interesting as you thought it would be, which I would imagine would be the case most of the time. And in the event that itis unexpectedly amazing, isn't it better to have experienced that moment of bliss rather than imagine what it could have been like? #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Betrayal quotes by Katie Klein
#10. The more lies you tell the more stories you have to remember. #Quote by Katie Klein
Betrayal quotes by Valgame
#11. Who replied evasively is betraying himself #Quote by Valgame
Betrayal quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#12. We still need to give our best to life even if we do not understand the purpose of our existence on earth. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Betrayal quotes by Billy Marshall Stoneking
#13. Character is not purchased with a dance in the street. It's expensive and hard to come by. Though it is the heir of disappointment, betrayal and frustration, it is not the inheritance that matters but what you do with it. No one ever developed their character by arranging their experiences in such a way that only 'good' things are allowed to happen. #Quote by Billy Marshall Stoneking
Betrayal quotes by Siegfried Sassoon
#14. And there'd be no more jokes in Music-halls
To mock the riddled corpses round Bapaume. #Quote by Siegfried Sassoon
Betrayal quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#15. But he didn't need to seek visual confirmation of what he'd just heard to know she had. And the truth was, he couldn't blame her. He'd not have let her die, either. He'd have moved mountains. He'd have battled God or Devil for his wife's life.
She'd betrayed him.
He smiled faintly. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Betrayal quotes by Charles Bukowski
#16. I have, he went on, betrayed myself with
belief, deluded myself with love
tricked myself with sex.
the bottle is damned faithful, he said,
the bottle will not lie #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Betrayal quotes by Samuel R. Delany
#17. Those moments when we learn that mothers rage and fathers kill, that friends betray and authority is fallible, or that our own blank, innocent ignorance can destroy the pure, the good, and the loved are moments the very memory of which constitutes the beginning of a strategy to live in a world where such horrors exist. #Quote by Samuel R. Delany
Betrayal quotes by Mande Chambers
#18. No lie, secret, betrayal, or mistake will remain concealed if you have a past. #Quote by Mande Chambers
Betrayal quotes by Laura Lee Guhrke
#19. He imagined her upstairs in her room, lying in bed with her hair spread across the pillow, that nightgown with the pearl buttons down the front tangled around her legs, nothing beneath the delicate fabric but her softness and warmth. Desire pulsed through his body, hungry and hot and needy.
It was unbearable to want her with such intensity, unthinkable to need her with such desperate longing, dangerous to believe that she could somehow keep the demons away. He did not want to need her, for in need, there was dependence. He could not trust, for in trust, there was betrayal. Better never to see heaven at all than to catch a glimpse of it, grab for it, and lose it.
He went to his room. He slept with his demons, and he woke alone. #Quote by Laura Lee Guhrke
Betrayal quotes by Nicole Richie
#20. It's hard to tell who has your back, from who has it long enough just to stab you in it ... #Quote by Nicole Richie
Betrayal quotes by Neetesh Dixitxit
#21. The part of something is missing and the remaining part is itself not able to explain what part is missing. #Quote by Neetesh Dixitxit
Betrayal quotes by Bryant McGill
#22. There is nothing worse than fear. Fear is worse than cancer, fear is worse than torture, fear is worse than betrayal and fear is even worse than death. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Betrayal quotes by Mason Cooley
#23. I am never more myself than in my self-betrayals. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Betrayal quotes by Antonio Logan
#24. Relationships fail because of trust issues, commitment issues and communication issues. Without communication there is no relationship. Without respect there is no LOVE. Without trust there is no reason to continue. Stay grounded to the one you love. Respect him or her to the utmost. Respect the relationship. If the relationship is healthy, then keep on keeping on and never let a Hurricane, Tornado, or Tsunami tear your house down. Life's to short for broken hearts. Life's to short for betrayal or back stabbing. Life's to short to live with the thoughts of "What if's". Life's to short to waste a perfectly good heart. Adhere to the truth, if not Karma has no deadline. She could strike whenever you're in a relationship or married, then you look back on years ago wondering "What if... #Quote by Antonio Logan
Betrayal quotes by Robert J. Wiersema
#25. Tim looked my way again. "And how to you think you will be judged, on the day the trumpet sounds? You who have caused so much pain, so many deaths."
"I have been true to Him. I have stood up for His name when all around me
"For His name," Tim said. "But what of what He taught? What of the innocents you have killed in His name?"
"I've only known one miraculous innocent," Father Peter said.
"And you've spent your lifetimes trying to atone for your betrayal, to protect his memory. A memory that doesn't need your protection."
"You're not going to change my mind."
"I know," Tim said. His voice was sad. #Quote by Robert J. Wiersema
Betrayal quotes by Marian Keyes
#26. Because you promised? But you've promised me load of things. Like to cherish me and to love till death do us part. #Quote by Marian Keyes
Betrayal quotes by Patti Smith
#27. The Bible is very resonant. It has everything: creation, betrayal, lust, poetry, prophecy, sacrifice. All great things are in the Bible, and all great writers have drawn from it and more than people realise, whether Shakespeare, Herman Melville or Bob Dylan. #Quote by Patti Smith
Betrayal quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#28. If I didn't care so much, then being betrayed wouldn't feel so painful. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Betrayal quotes by Corey Flintoff
#29. There are allegations actually that he's [Vladimir Putin] associated with real gangsters in the past and that he runs his top circle sort of like a mafia family. But, you know, what is clear is that he seems to prize loyalty above all. He deeply resents anything that he sees as a betrayal. #Quote by Corey Flintoff
Betrayal quotes by Marian Keyes
#30. No one knows how strong they are until they have to be. #Quote by Marian Keyes
Betrayal quotes by Meljean Brook
#31. She'd been a silly girl who'd dreamed of love, and a stupid girl who'd declared love a fraud; but she'd never imagined that when she found it,it would be richer, more powerful than dreams, and the impossibility of keeping it more painful than the worst betrayal. #Quote by Meljean Brook
Betrayal quotes by Julian Barnes
#32. Like what? The things Literature was all about: love, sex, morality, friendship, happiness, suffering, betrayal, adultery, good and evil, heroes and villains, guilt and innocence, ambition, power, justice, revolution, war, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the individual against society, success and failure, murder, suicide, death, God. And barn owls. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Betrayal quotes by Marisa De Los Santos
#33. Still Dev missed him. Not all the time or even very often, but now and then, missing would hit Dev, throw him off balance, a sudden, undeniable ache to know his father, how his voice sounded, what his face did when he read the paper or looked at his son. And the missing wasn't fair; it wasn't earned. In fact, the missing, the searching, the imagining were so unfair that when you put them all together, they looked a lot like betrayal. #Quote by Marisa De Los Santos
Betrayal quotes by Rukhsar Din
#34. When I recall memories, it all seems like a film, not a reality. #Quote by Rukhsar Din
Betrayal quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#35. Their experiences led them to create assumptions about others and related beliefs about themselves such as "this is my lot in life" and "this is what I deserve". Some also learned that personal safety and happiness are of lower priority than survival and that it may be safer to give in than to actively fight off additional abuse and victimization. When abuse is perpetrated by intimates, it is additionally confounding in terms of attachment, betrayal, and trust. Victims may be unable to leave or to fight back due to strong, albeit insecure and disorganized, attachment and misplaced loyalty to abusers. They may have also experienced trauma bonding over the course of their victimization, that is, a bond of specialness with or dependence on the abuser. #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Betrayal quotes by Jean Genet
#36. Anyone who has not experienced the ecstasy of betrayal knows nothing about ecstasy at all. #Quote by Jean Genet
Betrayal quotes by K. Vijay Kumar
#37. The informer's death sent a shockwave through the STF. To serve as a warning to any potential informer, Veerappan got Kandavel's last moments recorded on camera. A few days later, graphic photographs of his brutal end appeared in the Tamil magazine Nakkeeran, along with a screaming headline: 'Trial in Veerappan's Court - Death for Betrayal'. #Quote by K. Vijay Kumar
Betrayal quotes by Erin Hunter
#38. You have no understanding of the warrior code at all. What you've done here proves it. You've risked the lives of young kits ... by leaving them alone here. Anything could have happened to them. They could have been lost. They could have died. My kits could have died. But you didn't just betray me. You betrayed the entire Clan. You did all this ... and you never considered how it would make any of us feel. The Clan is a family, Sol. A community. And you're incapable of thinking about anyone but yourself. #Quote by Erin Hunter
Betrayal quotes by Lorenzo Carcaterra
#39. He had no tolerance for acts of betrayal or cruelty and lacked Angelo's taste for the minute details of a business deal. He was a man totally in the moment, who knew only to respond to the action with an action. He was a pure gangster. #Quote by Lorenzo Carcaterra
Betrayal quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#40. Other people were so unsuccessful at fending off love! Members of Congress who had affairs with their aides, or students who I'd known in college, girls who as freshmen declared themselves lesbians, then graduated with boyfriends- to give in to such love represents, for them, a capitulation or a betrayal, yet apparently the pull was so strong that they couldn't resist. That was what I didn't understand, how people made the leap from not mattering in each others' lives to mattering. #Quote by Curtis Sittenfeld
Betrayal quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#41. It is easier for an ambitious friend to become an enemy than for an enemy to become a friend. It is even easier to make friends than you can find people to trust as friends. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Betrayal quotes by Ms Nheu
#42. I can forgive 1000 lies but i cannot accept one single betrayal #Quote by Ms Nheu
Betrayal quotes by Frank E. Peretti
#43. Take away truth and people will lie. Scoff at virtue, and betrayal becomes a matter of course. #Quote by Frank E. Peretti
Betrayal quotes by Eric Ludy
#44. Selfishness, like Jimmy the Shrimp, works underground. Most people don't even realize it is there, which is precisely why it is so dangerous. Selfishness works in secret, behind closed doors, on the black market, plotting and planning our destruction. Selfishness is the Mob boss of the soul. In fact, without selfishness, you wouldn't have murder, hate, holocaust, slander, genocide, betrayal, or crooked lawyers - because those are all the convoluted results of Jimmy the Shrimp's regime. Simply put, selfishness is the sickness behind all other sicknesses. #Quote by Eric Ludy
Betrayal quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#45. Being dependent on this world will lead to betrayal. It will deceive us at the right time. It is better to depend on a pillow; at least it will not move away from us at the right time. The one that is living will move away. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Betrayal quotes by Helen McCloy
#46. The author portrays himself in every line he writes and portrayal is always betrayal. #Quote by Helen McCloy
Betrayal quotes by Priya Parmar
#47. But to begin again? No, Virginia. There can be no beginning again. Love and forgiveness are not the same thing. #Quote by Priya Parmar
Betrayal quotes by Tupac Shakur
#48. The lesser the friends, the lesser the chances of betrayal. #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Betrayal quotes by Tom Rachman
#49. When she realizes that Nigel is having an affair, her first sentiment is satisfaction that she figured it out. Her second is that, despite all the palaver about betrayal, it doesn't feel so terrible.This is pleasing
it demonstrates a certain sophistication. She wonders if his fling might even serve her. In principle, she could leave him without compunction now, though she doesn't wish to. It also frees her from guilt about any infidelities she might wish to engage in. All in all, his affair might prove useful. #Quote by Tom Rachman
Betrayal quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#50. Her only way home was to betray her friend. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Betrayal quotes by Cindy Skaggs
#51. Logan felt raw inside from the look of betrayal she had leveled on him. Who was he to demand honesty when every aspect of his presence in her life, even on the periphery, was a lie? #Quote by Cindy Skaggs
Betrayal quotes by Auliq Ice
#52. Life is full of unfairness but you'll have to deal with it, as long as you're able to take a breath. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Betrayal quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#53. In science, compromise is a betrayal of truth. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Betrayal quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#54. I'd rather meander through a pit of vipers than love one more person, but since I'm on the subject of snakes, we all know one, or are one. #Quote by Donna Lynn Hope
Betrayal quotes by Mary E. Pearson
#55. We already had three steps behind us.
"Hold on, Lia," I whispered.
Hold on for me. #Quote by Mary E. Pearson
Betrayal quotes by Jada Pinkett Smith
#56. The War on Men Through the Degradation of Woman" - "How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye's of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only. The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.

I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection.

There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can't recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer.

He doesn't recognize that the [creation] of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize.

He doesn't recognize that it's his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him 4 four children.
< #Quote by Jada Pinkett Smith
Betrayal quotes by Anne Curtis
#57. Betrayal, in all forms, is painful. It can make you go crazy. But we all have choices on how to deal with it. Do we just go away or stay? #Quote by Anne Curtis
Betrayal quotes by Mohammed Zaki Ansari
#58. For you it may be enjoyable to betraying but do you know you are killing one innocent person who trusted on you.
So keep it mind your enjoy is not free.Someone paid for your fun by His/Her life #Quote by Mohammed Zaki Ansari
Betrayal quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#59. Aelin hissed, Need I remind you Captain, that you went to Endovier and did not blink at the slaves and the mass graves? Need I remind you that I was starved and chained and you let Duke Perrington force me to the ground at Dorian's feet while you did nothing? And now you have the nerve to accuse me of not caring, when many of the people in this city have profited off the blood and misery of the very people you ignored? #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Betrayal quotes by Andy Stanley
#60. I tell the girls in our student ministry, You don't really want sex. What you want is intimacy. You want to meet a guy, fall in love, and know you can trust him completely. You want somebody with whom you can share everything there is to know about you without fear of betrayal or rejection. You want to be fully known and to know him fully. Purity now paves the way to intimacy later. #Quote by Andy Stanley
Betrayal quotes by Pema Chodron
#61. When we touch the center of sorrow, when we sit with discomfort without trying to fix it, when we stay present to the pain of disapproval or betrayal and let it soften us, these are times that we connect with bohdichitta. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Betrayal quotes by Whitney Otto
#62. No one fights dirtier or more brutally than blood; only family knows it's own weaknesses, the exact placement of the heart. The tragedy is that one can still live with the force of hatred, feel infuriated that once you are born to another, that kinship lasts through life and death, immutable, unchanging, no matter how great the misdeed or betrayal. Blood cannot be denied, and perhaps that's why we fight tooth and claw, because we cannot - being only human - put asunder what God has joined together. #Quote by Whitney Otto
Betrayal quotes by Edith Konecky
#63. Children should be seen and not heard,' my mother contributed grimly, ganging up on me. That was the worst part, having her join the enemy. I knew it was her idea of diplomacy, and that it probably stemmed from cowardice, but to me it was simple betrayal, selling out her own child for the sake of peace. #Quote by Edith Konecky
Betrayal quotes by Anushka Bhartiya
#64. Just when she was about to reemerge from the depths of her sorrows, someone shook her again. This wasn't the jolt that usually awakens the senses. This was what it takes to finally rise over all that is petty about this world. Jealousy, insecurity and of course, betrayal. Awakening the senses was meant for another day, another time. #Quote by Anushka Bhartiya
Betrayal quotes by Rachel Caine
#65. It's not your enemies who are likeliest to hurt you. It is, always, those you trust. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Betrayal quotes by Elizabeth Janeway
#66. I am not sure how many "sins" I would recognize in the world. Some would surely be defused by changed circumstances. But I can imagine none that is more irredeemably sinful than the betrayal, the exploitation, of the young by those who should care for them. #Quote by Elizabeth Janeway
Betrayal quotes by Grover Norquist
#67. No Republican could expect to win the GOP nod after betraying his party's rank and file. #Quote by Grover Norquist
Betrayal quotes by Ricky Martin
#68. I believe that everything that happens in life happens for a reason. I also believe that the God that lives inside me - to call it something - is in charge of giving me everything I am going to ever need. All of my joys and pains have made me who I am. They are the yin and yang of my existence, this inseparable duality of life that blends together and makes us the people we are destined to become. I have known love and loss, joy and sadness, friendship and betrayal. I have known a sense of success I never imagined possible; I have had to withstand the attacks and accusations of my detractors; and yes, I have also had failures. Today I know that every step has taught me something and helped me grow and become a better and stronger person - a more complete human being. #Quote by Ricky Martin
Betrayal quotes by Michael Black
#69. Fundamentalism is disastrously destructive because it is an inhibition of the very human impulse to understand, a closure of the process of education, a betrayal of the capacity that human beings have to think and act together. It is wrong because it tries to stop not just thought, but the society which makes thought possible. #Quote by Michael Black
Betrayal quotes by Laini Taylor
#70. Papilio stomachus: fragile creatures, vulnerable to forst and betrayal. #Quote by Laini Taylor
Betrayal quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#71. I think preconceived ideas or prejudgments are meant to give us an edge whenever we are dealing with others we don't know or haven't made the effort to understand. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Betrayal quotes by Gregory Maguire
#72. Perhaps every accidental cluster of people has a short period of grace, in between an initial shyness and prejudice on the one hand and eventual repugnance and betrayal on the other. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Betrayal quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#73. Betrayal dressed in love and trimmed with the facade of good intentions is the most barbaric of all betrayals. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Betrayal quotes by Octavia E. Butler
#74. I hold your life and do not take it." They had begun as gestures of trust rather than of affection, but their meaning had grown. Now, depending on the circumstances, a simple lifting of the head - as she had lifted hers to receive his bite - could mean trust, affection, challenge, or contempt. It was, Tahneh thought bitterly, the perfect gesture for a betrayal. #Quote by Octavia E. Butler
Betrayal quotes by Gena Showalter
#75. You speak as if I actually have a soul. As if mine wasn't ripped from me by lies and betrayal. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Betrayal quotes by Paul Harding
#76. But it's a curse, a condemnation, like an act of provocation, to have been aroused from not being, to have been conjured up from a clot of dirt and hay and lit on fire and sent stumbling among the rocks and bones of this ruthless earth to weep and worry and wreak havoc and ponder little more than the impending return to oblivion, to invent hopes that are as elaborate as they are fraudulent and poorly constructed, and that burn off the moment they are dedicated, if not before, and are at best only true as we invent them for ourselves or tell them to others, around a fire, in a hovel, while we all freeze or starve or plot or contemplate treachery or betrayal or murder or despair of love, or make daughters and elaborately rejoice in them so that when they are cut down even more despair can be wrung from our hearts, which prove only to have been made for the purpose of being broken. And worse still, because broken hearts continue beating. #Quote by Paul Harding
Betrayal quotes by Albert Camus
#77. I used to advertise my loyalty and I don't believe there is a single person I loved that I didn't eventually betray. #Quote by Albert Camus
Betrayal quotes by Jex Lane
#78. How could you do this to me? How could you be so vicious?" - "Because love is the easiest way to control someone and I needed a way to control you. #Quote by Jex Lane
Betrayal quotes by Mohammed Zaki Ansari
#79. when you betray to someone , first you betray to yourself, who speak somewhere inside you that you are a good human #Quote by Mohammed Zaki Ansari
Betrayal quotes by Harvey Keitel
#80. Well, it's such an intricate, beautiful script about eight professional robbers pulling a heist, and it deals with elements of betrayal, trust, instinct, and need for relationships. #Quote by Harvey Keitel
Betrayal quotes by Colette
#81. I heard on their lips the language of passion, of betrayal and jealousy, and sometimes despair - languages with which I was all too familiar. #Quote by Colette
Betrayal quotes by Mary Balogh
#82. One day you will learn that love does not always betray you. #Quote by Mary Balogh
Betrayal quotes by Richelle Mead
#83. And yet, you didn't bother telling me yourself," I snapped, still outraged. "I couldn't! They made me promise not to." Somehow, his betrayal hurt worse than all the others. I had come to trust him implicitly. How could he do this to me? "No one believed I'd be able to talk the Warriors down, so everyone just made contingency plans without me." Never mind that I Hadn't been able to talk them down. "Someone should have told me. You should have told me." There was legitimate pain and regret in his voice. "I'm telling you, I wanted to. But I was trapped. You of all people should know what it's like being caught between groups, Sage. Besides, don't you remember what I said just before you got in the car with Trey?" I did actually. Almost word for word. No matter what happens, I want you to know that I never doubted what you're going to do. It's smart, and it's brave. I slouched further into my seat and felt like I was on the verge of tears. Adrian was right. I did know what it was like to have your loyalty stretched between different groups. I understood the position he'd been in. It was just, some selfish part of me wished that I'd been the one his loyalty has been strongest to. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Betrayal quotes by David Richo
#84. I must admit, however, that this is mostly a book of guesses - as any book on love must be. My guess is that loving is what we are here for, that love is what every one of us deserves to receive and is here to give, that love alone makes this earth the heaven it was meant to be. The guess turns into a conundrum when we realize that so many of us prefer the signs that point to heaven over heaven itself. We yearn for and talk about the love we want. We lament the love we have been deprived of. Yet we sometimes fail to take the steps that can help it happen for us.
The puzzle becomes even more confounding when we sometimes prefer the hell of no love at all, which we bring on by our own unskillful choices or by our endurance of abuse or betrayal, especially from those who say they love us. This book proposes that love is real when we dare to become as loving as we can be toward ourselves and others and as careful as we can be not to confuse a history with someone or a connection that does not work for us with true love. #Quote by David Richo
Betrayal quotes by Hans Fallada
#85. The air was thick with betrayal. No one could trust anyone else, and in that dismal atmosphere the men seemed to grow even duller, devolving into mechanical extensions of the machines they serviced. #Quote by Hans Fallada
Betrayal quotes by Jeon Tae-il
#86. The feeling of betrayal by the friend you trust #Quote by Jeon Tae-il
Betrayal quotes by Salman Aziz
#87. When a human in happy time, he/she doesn't understand the reality! He/she doesn't realize it until he/she is touched by sadness, pain, poverty, refusal, betrayal, hate, abuse and so many things. Until then he/she doesn't know what the reality is. Cause the reality is very harsh and very hard to accept. #Quote by Salman Aziz
Betrayal quotes by Elaine Pagels
#88. The story of the betrayal of Jesus by Judas gave a moral and religious rationale to anti-Jewish sentiment, and that's what made it persistent and vicious. #Quote by Elaine Pagels
Betrayal quotes by Cornelia Funke
#89. What was she hoping to gain from his death? That it would numb the pain of his betrayal, or heal her injured pride? Her red sister didn't know much about love. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Betrayal quotes by Veronica Roth
#90. There are other kinds of people in this world. There is the kind like Tris, who, after suffering and betrayal, could still find enough love to lay down her life instead of her brother's. Or the kind like Cara, who could still forgive the person who shot her brother in the head. Or Christina, who lost friend after friend but still decided to stay open, to make new ones. Appearing in front of me is another choice, brighter and stronger than the ones I gave myself. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Betrayal quotes by Charlotte Munro
#91. You can wait as long as you like, pretty one, it won't make any difference. He will never see you as anything more than some victim he has to protect. Why he thinks it his duty to protect you from the inevitable, I do not know ... unless he knows something we do not ... #Quote by Charlotte Munro
Betrayal quotes by Dane Cook
#92. My mom and dad passed away from cancer. Within nine months, I lost both of my folks. Immediately after that, I had a horrible betrayal where my brother, who worked for me, stole a lot of my money. He's in jail now. #Quote by Dane Cook
Betrayal quotes by T.F. Hodge
#93. Betrayal and dishonor is usually an inside job. Keep it 'sucka-free', loved one! #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Betrayal quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#94. With true love, you can move mountains, make unusual sacrifices, live a life of deprivations and still be happy. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Betrayal quotes by Andrena Sawyer
#95. If you see something dynamic in another person, speak up. It's time to stop letting haters set the precedent, while negativity becomes the default setting. #Quote by Andrena Sawyer
Betrayal quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#96. Did you like my novel?" she couldn't resist asking.
"Yes, I did. At first I thought it would be typical silver-fork fare. But I liked the way your well-bred characters began to unravel. I liked the portrayal of decent people moved to deception, violence, betrayal... you don't seem to shrink from anything in your writing."
"Critics say my work is lacking in decency."
"That's because your underlying theme- that ordinary people are capable of extraordinary things in their private lives- makes them uncomfortable. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Betrayal quotes by S.C. Stephens
#97. I think in the end, you would have stayed with me, out of obligation ... or maybe comfort. Maybe I was safe to you, and you needed to feel that. I know how scared you get of the unknown. To you ... I must be kind of a security blanket. Do you see now, how that doesn't work for me? I don't want to be there, simply because the idea of me being gone is too ... scary. I want to be someone's everything. I want fire and passion, and love that's returned, equally. I want to be someone's heart ... Even if it means breaking my own. #Quote by S.C. Stephens
Betrayal quotes by Sasha Samy
#98. Forgiveness is a choice you can make to free yourself from the shackles of your past, from pain, hurt and resentment. Forgiveness is your road to inner freedom. It does not mean that you need to forget, deny or condone what has transpired. You choose to forgive because forgiveness is the only way to transcend painful experiences and to attain inner peace and freedom. Transcending Abuse & Betrayal. #Quote by Sasha Samy

Betrayal quotes by Veronika Gasparyan
#100. It was mind boggling to know that I would experience such betrayal at such a young age while others live their whole life without knowing what betrayal is #Quote by Veronika Gasparyan
Betrayal quotes by Galina Nelson
#101. I love to talk to flowers. They are sensitive. And sometimes I just want to have couple of wings and fly away ... Will you ever notice? #Quote by Galina Nelson
Betrayal quotes by Danka V.
#102. What irritated me most in that entire situation was the fact that I
wasn't feeling humiliated, or annoyed, or even fooled. Betrayal was
what I felt, my heart broken not just by a guy I was in love with, but
also by, as I once believed, a true friend. #Quote by Danka V.
Betrayal quotes by Michael Marshall Smith
#103. To other cities, other machines, other forests of buildings of concrete where other men and women missed the stars at night and tended small plants on windowsills and kept tiny dogs and took them for walks along corridors in the endless procession of boxes and intersections and lights; where they rented space in other peoples's property so they had somewhere to sleep so they could get up and perform profit-related tasks they neither understood nor cared about, simply so they would be given the tokens of exchange they needed in order to rent the space in which they slept and snarled and watched television until finally some of them slipped out of the window and ran howling down the dark streeets, throwing off a numbness handed down from a society that was itself trapped in fracture and betrayal and despair; the lonely insane in a culture turning into a Christmas bauble, gaudy beauty wrapped around an emptiness coalescing faster and faster into parking lots and malls and waiting areas and virtual chat rooms--non places where nobody knew anything about anybody anymore. #Quote by Michael Marshall Smith
Betrayal quotes by Alexander Lowen
#104. The cases described in this section (The Fear of Being) may seem extreme, but I have become convinced that they are not as uncommon as one would think. Beneath the seemingly rational exterior of our lives is a fear of insanity. We dare not question the values by which we live or rebel against the roles we play for fear of putting our sanity into doubt. We are like the inmates of a mental institution who must accept its inhumanity and insensitivity as caring and knowledgeableness if they hope to be regarded as sane enough to leave. The question who is sane and who is crazy was the theme of the novel One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. The question, what is sanity? was clearly asked in the play Equus.
The idea that much of what we do is insane and that if we want to be sane, we must let ourselves go crazy has been strongly advanced by R.D. Laing. In the preface to the Pelican edition of his book The Divided Self, Laing writes: "In the context of our present pervasive madness that we call normality, sanity, freedom, all of our frames of reference are ambiguous and equivocal." And in the same preface: "Thus I would wish to emphasize that our 'normal' 'adjusted' state is too often the abdication of ecstasy, the betrayal of our true potentialities; that many of us are only too successful in acquiring a false self to adapt to false realities."
Wilhelm Reich had a somewhat similar view of present-day human behavior. Thus Reich says, "Homo normalis blocks off entirely the perce #Quote by Alexander Lowen

Betrayal quotes by Tobias Wolff
#106. Say you've just read Faulkner's 'Barn Burning'. Like the son in the story, you've sensed the faults in your father's character. Thinking about them makes you uncomfortable, left alone you'd probably close the book and move on to other thoughts. But instead you are taken in hand by a tall, brooding man with a distinguished limp who involves you and a roomful of other boys in the consideration of what it means to be a son. The loyalty that is your duty and your worth and your problem. The goodness of loyalty and its difficulties and snares, how loyalty might also become betrayal - of the self and the world outside the circle of blood.

You've never had this conversation before, not with anyone. And even as its happening you understand that just as your father's troubles with the world - emotional frailty, self-doubt, incomplete honesty - will not lead him to set it on fire, your own loyalty will never be the stuff of tragedy. You will not turn bravely and painfully from your father, as the boy in the story does, but foresake him, without regret. And as you accept that separation, it seems to happen; your father's sad, fleshy face grows vague, and you blink it away and look up to where your teachers leans against his desk, one hand in a coat pocket, the other rubbing his bum knee as he listens desolately to the clever bore behind you saying something about bird imagery. #Quote by Tobias Wolff
Betrayal quotes by Angel Abrea
#107. When on life's journey it becomes our lot to travel with criticism of skeptics, the hate of some, the rejection of others, the impatience of many, or a friend's betrayal, we must be able to pray in such a manner that an abiding faith and a strong testimony that the Lord will be with us to the end, will compel us to say, "Nevertheless, Father, Thy will be done, and with Thy help, in patience I will follow firmly on the path that takes me back to Thee." #Quote by Angel Abrea

Betrayal quotes by Steven Erikson
#110. Betrayal was the greatest of all crimes, for it took all that was human within a person and made it a thing of pain. In the face of that, murder itself was surcease: it was quick, and it ended the anguish and despair of a life without hope. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Betrayal quotes by Rick Yancey
#111. It occurred to me ... that aberrance is a wholly human construct. There were no such things as monsters outside the human mind. We are vain and arrogant, evolution's highest achievement and most dismal failure, prisoners of our self-awareness and the illusion that we stand in the center, that there is us and then there is everything else but us. But we do not stand apart from or above or in the middle of anything. There is nothing apart, nothing above, and the middle is everywhere - and nowhere. We are no more beautiful and essential or magnificent than an earthworm. In fact - and dare we go there, you and I? - you could say the worm is more beautiful, because it is innocent and we are not. The worm has no motive but to survive long enough to make baby worms. There is no betrayal, no cruelty, no envy, no lust, and no hatred in the worm's heart, and so who are the monsters and which species shall we call aberrant? #Quote by Rick Yancey
Betrayal quotes by Aldrich Ames
#112. Let's say a Soviet exchange student back in the '70s would go back and tell the KGB about people and places and things that he'd seen and done and been involved with. This is not really espionage; there's no betrayal of trust. #Quote by Aldrich Ames
Betrayal quotes by Bert J. Hubinger
#113. Huzzah! Free Trade and Sailors' Rights! But instead American ships are captured and sailors impressed by the thousands into the British Navy, becoming slaves to the lash, while the United States has virtually no navy to back them up. Baltimore native, Nathan Jeffries, son of an American hero, Captain William Jeffries, and his Quaker wife, Amy, is haunted by the memories of his fiancee, his best friend, his enemy's woman and his betrayal. Chesapeake Bay is no refuge aboard his father's brig Bucephalus;facing his worst fears, he is chased and captured by armed privateer schooner Scourge. In a violent world at war, Nathan must break his most solemn promise to his mother. For Nathan and the young United States, 1812 would severely challenge rights of passage. #Quote by Bert J. Hubinger
Betrayal quotes by S.L. Vaden
#114. When your trust has been betrayed, the only thing to do is live, learn and let go. Otherwise the betrayal done by another will turn into hate for them. But they will not feel this hate, it will only hurt you more, growing bigger and darker. So, live, learn and let go. By living, it means they did not hurt you so deep that you can not move forward. Learn, learn to not trust this person again, and to make more of a sound judgement in the future. Letting go doesn't mean forgetting. It means that you have let go of the pain it caused. And by not forgetting, you will learn and move forward from the betrayal of the past. #Quote by S.L. Vaden
Betrayal quotes by Neetesh Dixit
#115. The best part about turning to the dark side of you, it sets you free. #Quote by Neetesh Dixit
Betrayal quotes by Elizabeth Grace Saunders
#116. We spend our lives asking the question, 'What do people want me to do? Who do they want me to be?' But this is a betrayal of our inner truth. We should be investing our lives in the pursuit of discovering who we are and what we were created to do. #Quote by Elizabeth Grace Saunders
Betrayal quotes by Tennessee Williams
#117. How calmly does the orange branch
Observe the sky begin to blanch
Without a cry, without a prayer,
With no betrayal of despair.

Sometime while night obscures the tree
The zenith of its life will be
Gone past forever, and from thence
A second history will commence.

A chronicle no longer gold,
A bargaining with mist and mould,
And finally the broken stem
The plummeting to earth; and then

An intercourse not well designed
For beings of a golden kind
Whose native green must arch above
The earth's obscene, corrupting love.

And still the ripe fruit and the branch
Observe the sky begin to blanch
Without a cry, without a prayer,
With no betrayal of despair.

O Courage, could you not as well
Select a second place to dwell,
Not only in that golden tree
But in the frightened heart of me? #Quote by Tennessee Williams
Betrayal quotes by Sylvia Plath
#118. When you give someone your whole heart and he doesn't want it, you cannot take it back. It's gone forever. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Betrayal quotes by Andrew Solomon
#119. Philip Galanes has fashioned a novel both bleak and funny about a young man's struggle to sort out his troubled love: the too-strong love for his mother, the too-weak love for his suicidal father, and the all-consuming love of anonymous sexual encounters. Pointed and acute, this story tells of the narrator's many betrayals of others and their many betrayals of him. It exists in an uncomfortable moral space where the humor of terrible things sometimes outweighs, but never obscures, their poignancy. #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Betrayal quotes by Alice Miller
#120. The victimization of children is nowhere forbidden; what is forbidden is to write about it. #Quote by Alice Miller
Betrayal quotes by Alan Watt
#121. There is a ruthlessness to the creative act. It often involves a betrayal of the status quo. #Quote by Alan Watt
Betrayal quotes by John Scalzi
#122. I find it difficult to believe that Redditors don't understand that anonymity online is merely a facade; indeed, it's probably one of the reasons that revealing the identity of pseudonymous Redditors is looked on as such a huge betrayal. #Quote by John Scalzi
Betrayal quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#123. ...only the dreamers of a dream are capable of translating their dreams into worthy practical endeavors that are devoid of haunting errors. After all, they are the ones who carefully observed the link between their dreams and reality; they are the ones who worked consciously to blend them into one. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Betrayal quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#124. Sleep is the most moronic fraternity in the world, with the heaviest dues and the crudest rituals. It is a mental torture I find debasing ... I simply cannot get used to the nightly betrayal of reason, humanity, genius. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Betrayal quotes by Harold Edmund Stearns
#125. When distinction of any kind, even intellectual distinction, is somehow resented as a betrayal of the American spirit of equal opportunity for all, the result must be just this terror of individualistic impulses setting us apart, either above or below our neighbours; just this determination to obey without questioning and to subscribe with passion to the conventions and traditions. The dilemma becomes a very real one: How can this sense of democratic equality be made compatible with respect for exceptional personalities or great minds? How can democracy, as we understand it today, with its iron repression of the free spirit, its monotonous standardisation of everything, learn to cherish an intellectual aristocracy without which any nation runs the risk of becoming a civilisation of the commonplace and the second-rate? #Quote by Harold Edmund Stearns
Betrayal quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#126. She'd betrayed her country because she'd believed it was the right thing to do. Yet would she have done this, if not for Arin?
He knew none of it. Had never asked for it. Kestrel had made her own choices. It was unfair to blame him.
But she wanted to. #Quote by Marie Rutkoski

Betrayal quotes by Anna Kavan
#128. Sometimes a savage beauty lured me into the sun and I would start to love the danger a little. On these occasions I felt the reluctant love drained painfully from me as blood drains from a deep wound. The tigers lapped my love's blood and remained enemies. The inhabitants of the day laughed at the gift I wanted to bring them, and I shut myself in my inner room to escape the betrayal of their arrogant mouths. #Quote by Anna Kavan
Betrayal quotes by Kiran Desai
#129. But so fluid a thing was love.It wasn't firm,he was learning, it wasn't a scripture;it was a wobbliness that lent itself to betrayal,taking the mold of whatever he poured he poured it into.And in fact,it was difficult to keep from pouring it into numerous vessels.It could be used for all kinds of purposes ... He wished it were a constraint.It was truly beginning to frighten him. #Quote by Kiran Desai
Betrayal quotes by Arthur Koestler
#130. Sympathy, conscience, disgust, despair, repentance, and atonement are for us repellent debauchery. To sit down and let oneself be hypnotized by one's own navel, to turn up one's eyes and humbly offer the back of one's neck to Gletkin's revolver - that is an easy solution. The greatest temptation for the like of us is: to renounce violence, to repent, to make peace with oneself. Most great revolutionaries fell before this temptation, from Spartacus to Danton and Dostoevsky; they are the classical form of betrayal of the cause. The temptations of God were always more dangerous for mankind than those of Satan. As long as chaos dominates the world, God is ananachronism; and every compromise with one's own conscience is perfidy. When the accursed inner voice speaks to you, hold your hands over your ears. ..." He felt for the bottle behind him and poured out an other glass. Rubashov noticed that the bottle was already half empty. You also could do with a little solace, he thought.

"The greatest criminals in history," Ivanov went on, "are not of the type Nero and Fouché, but of the type Gandhi and Tolstoy. Gandhi's inner voice has done more to prevent the liberation of India than the British guns. To sell oneself for thirty pieces of silver is an honest transaction; but to sell oneself to one's own conscience is to abandon mankind. History is a priori amoral; it has no conscience.

Betrayal quotes by Bernhard Schlink
#133. I know that disavowal is an unusal form of betrayal. From the outside it is impossible to tell if you are disowning someone or simply exercising discretion, being considerate, avoiding embarrassments and sources of irritation. But you, who are doing the disowning, you know what you're doing. And disavowal pulls the underpinnings away from a relationship just as surely as other more flamboyant types of betrayal. #Quote by Bernhard Schlink
Betrayal quotes by The Arbinger Institute
#134. Self-betrayal" 1. An act contrary to what I feel I should do for another is called an act of "self-betrayal." 2. When I betray myself, I begin to see the world in a way that justifies my self-betrayal. 3. When I see the world in a self-justifying way, my view of reality becomes distorted. 4. So - when I betray myself, I enter the box. #Quote by The Arbinger Institute
Betrayal quotes by Carolyn Parkhurst
#135. How can it be, I wondered, that we can be lying in bed next to a person we love wholly and helplessly, a person we love more than our own breath, and still ache to think of the one who caused us pain all those years ago? It's the betrayal of this second heart of ours, its flesh tied off like a fingertip twined tightly round with a single hair, blue-tinged from lack of blood. The shameful squeeze of it. #Quote by Carolyn Parkhurst
Betrayal quotes by Stephen Dobyns
#136. Let's say someone has experienced a violent trauma or betrayal: a child has been raped by a parent or has witnessed the destruction of someone he loves or has been so traumatized by the possibility of beatings and punishments that he's afraid to act. If the trauma is great enough, that person's life may become frozen, emotionally frozen even though he still gets up in the morning, is busy all day, and goes to bed at night. But there's this empty space that begins to fill with rage, rage toward everyone - the perpetrator, the people in the world who haven't suffered, even toward himself. (174) #Quote by Stephen Dobyns
Betrayal quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#137. It is hard, I found, to be called traitor. Strange how hard it is, for it's an easy name to call another man. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Betrayal quotes by Terry Mancour
#138. When a leader you are sworn to respect and obey comes out and simply lies about things you know are untrue, and does it to your face, it is a fundamental betrayal of trust that destroys the peasant/warrior relationship. #Quote by Terry Mancour
Betrayal quotes by Oscar Wilde

Betrayal quotes by Harriet Lerner
#140. People's sense of self worth is pivotal to their ability to look clearly at the hurt they've caused. The more solid one's sense of self regard, the more likely that that person can feel empathy and compassion for the hurt party, and apologize from an authentic center. #Quote by Harriet Lerner
Betrayal quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#141. There are betrayals in war that are childlike compared with our human betrayals during peace. The new lovers enter the habits of the other. Things are smashed, revealed in a new light. This is done with nervous or tender sentences, although the heart is an organ of fire. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Betrayal quotes by Veronica Rossi
#142. She did it, though she hated opera. She hated everything about it. The overblown sense of drama. The violence and lewdness. No one had ever died of heartbreak in Reverie. Betrayal never led to murder. Those things didn't happen anymore. They had the Realms now. They could experience anything without taking risks. Now, life was Better than Real. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Betrayal quotes by Julia Green
#143. This is how it happens, this is how you stop yourself feeling so much. You go cold, colder still with each disappointment, each betrayal until you find you've frozen over at the core of you and you stop feeling anything anymore. #Quote by Julia Green
Betrayal quotes by Mary Renault
#144. I doubt he'd ever in his life lain down with anyone for whom he had not felt some kind of fondness. He needed love as a palm tree needs water, all his life long: from armies, from cities, from conquered enemies, nothing was enough. It laid him open to false friends, as anyone will tell you. Well, for all that, no man is made a god when he is dead and can do no harm, without love. He needed love and never forgave its betrayal, which he had no understanding of. For he himself, if it was given him with a whole heart, never misused it, nor despised the giver. He took it gratefully, and felt bound by it. #Quote by Mary Renault
Betrayal quotes by Franklin Littell
#145. The Church, rightly conceived, is the whole covenant people called to serve in the world. The clergy are also part of the laity, and their true function is to help equip the laity to be the Servant People. If they turn aside to rule and to secure their own status, they have betrayed the calling of the special ministry. #Quote by Franklin Littell
Betrayal quotes by Lionel Shriver
#146. Worse, the deadly accuracy of filial faultfinding is facilitated by access, by trust, by willing disclosure, and so constitutes a double betrayal. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Betrayal quotes by Craig A. Evans
#147. The Gospel of Judas turns Judas' act of betrayal into an act of obedience. The sacrifice of Jesus' body of flesh in fact becomes saving. And so for that reason, Judas emerges as the champion and he ends up being envied and even cursed and resented by the other disciples. #Quote by Craig A. Evans
Betrayal quotes by Jan Masaryk
#148. If you have sacrificed my nation to preserve the peace of the world, I will be the first to applaud you. But if not, gentlemen, God help your souls.
Czechoslovakian foreign minister Jan Masaryk to Lord Halifax as reaction to announcement of allies' betrayal in 1938. #Quote by Jan Masaryk
Betrayal quotes by Rosie Blythe
#149. Don't hold back because you're afraid of hurting someone else. If your best friend wants to be a cheerleader and you make the team but she doesn't, don't feel guilty. If you end up earning more than your sister, it's not a betrayal. Your success might be an inspiration for someone else, while limiting yourself to avoid upsetting the balance doesn't help anyone. Equally, rather than being paralysed by jealousy when someone else is coming out on top, use it to spur you on to greater things. Some of our best achievements will be triggered by envy at seeing someone else fulfilling our secret ambitions. #Quote by Rosie Blythe
Betrayal quotes by Sarah Jio
#150. It's just old black-and-whites,' she had said, flicking her wrist in the way one might dismiss a pile of junk mail. 'Relatives nobody remembers.' 'No,' I said, running to the box. 'Don't throw them out. I'll keep them.' I may not have known the names of the majority of the ancestors pictured inside, but it felt like a betrayal to send their memories to the landfill. I couldn't bear the thought. #Quote by Sarah Jio

Betrayal quotes by Junot Diaz

Betrayal quotes by Jose N Harris
No failure in Life, whether of love or money, is ever really that simple; it usually involves a type of a shadowy betrayal, buried in a secret, mass grave of shared hopes and dreams.

That universal mass grave exists in a private cemetery that most... both those suffering from the loss, but especially those committing the betrayal, refuse to acknowledge its existence.

When you realize you've been deeply betrayed, fear really hits you. That's what you feel first. And then it's anger and frustration. Then disspointment and disilussionment.

Part of the problem is how little we understand about the ultimate effects and consequences of betrayal on our hearts and spirits; and on trust and respect for our fellow brothers and sisters.

In writing, there are only really a few good stories to tell, and in the end, and betrayal and the failure of love is one of the most powerful stories to tell.

Tragedy in life normally comes with betrayal and compromise- by trading in our integrity and failing to treat life and others in our life, with respect and dignity. That's really where the truest and the most tragic failures comes from... they come making the choice to betray another soul, and in turn, giving up a peice of your own. #Quote by Jose N Harris

Betrayal quotes by Nayef Al-Rodhan
#156. The history of Israel-Palestine conflict cannot be understood without its underlying emotional meanders. The emotional frameworks of the loss of Palestine for the Arab-Islamic world touched deep scars that go back to the Crusades, symbolizing a proof of Arab-Islamic decay, political impotence, and perceived (British/French) betrayal and antagonism. #Quote by Nayef Al-Rodhan

Betrayal quotes by Lama Surya Das
#160. To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. - RALPH WALDO EMERSON #Quote by Lama Surya Das
Betrayal quotes by Billy Campbell

Betrayal quotes by Elizabeth Rudnick
#162. What was wrong with her? Why did things like this keep happening to her? Love wasn't supposed to hurt, yet it felt like all she knew when it came to love was pain. Every time she opened her heart, she just got burned. Or, in this case, frozen. And she was getting sick and tired of it. #Quote by Elizabeth Rudnick
Betrayal quotes by Sherwood Smith
#163. We're to have no communication with anyone outside of our own people," she said.
My first reaction was disbelief. Then I thought of that letter of thanks I'd planned on writing, and even though I had not told anyone, humiliation burned through me, followed by anger all the more bright for the sense of betrayal that underlay it all. Why betrayal? Shevraeth had never pretended to be on my side. Therefore he had saved my life purely for his own ends. Worse, my brother was somehow involved with his plans; I remembered Nessaren's subtle reaction to his mention, and I wondered if there had been some sort of reference to Bran in that letter Nessaren had just received. What else could this mean but that I was again to be used to force my brother to surrender?
Fury had withered all my good feelings, but I was determined not to show any of it, and I sat with my gaze on my hands, which were gripped in my lap, until I felt that I had my emotions under control again.
When I realized that the silence had grown protracted, I looked up and forced a polite smile. "I don't suppose you know where your Marquis is?" I asked, striving for a tone of nonchalance.
A quick exchange of looks, then Nessaren said, "I cannot tell you exactly, for I do not know, but he said that if you were to ask, I was to tender his compliments and regrets, but say events required him to move quickly."
And we're not? I thought about us waiting out the rain, and those nice picnics, and realized th #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Betrayal quotes by Lauren Sabel
#164. But not everyone you love is a forever. Sometimes you can love someone for a reason, and for a time, and although you never stop loving them, no matter how much they may betray you, you move on, because they aren't the one who makes you into an us. #Quote by Lauren Sabel
Betrayal quotes by Marylouise Burke
#165. I had to take false steps and go through hard times to come out to where I am now. I can't imagine living without acting. It's not easy, and I don't disrespect anyone who steps out of it after a certain point. Having a family and a house is cool. It's not a betrayal. But if you're going to be an actor, it has to be more than a passing interest. #Quote by Marylouise Burke
Betrayal quotes by William Shakespeare
#166. Cressida: My lord, will you be true?
Troilus: Who, I? Alas, it is my vice, my fault:
Whiles others fish with craft for great opinion,
I with great truth catch mere simplicity;
Whilst some with cunning gild their copper crowns,
With truth and plainness I do wear mine bare.
Fear not my truth: the moral of my wit
Is "plain and true"; there's all the reach of it. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Betrayal quotes by Malcolm X
#167. To me, the thing that is worse than death is betrayal. You see, I could conceive death, but I could not conceive betrayal. #Quote by Malcolm X
Betrayal quotes by Sidney Hook
#168. Those who say that life is worth living at any cost have already written an epitaph of infamy, for there is no cause and no person that they will not betray to stay alive. #Quote by Sidney Hook
Betrayal quotes by Courtney Giardina
#169. Marriage is not easy, I thought to myself. It's not supposed to be easy. It's two different people, from two different backgrounds, trying to build a life together for better or worse. It's something you have to work at every single day. There are going to be hard times and those are the times you are supposed to fight like hell. #Quote by Courtney Giardina
Betrayal quotes by Brian Andrews
#170. When ego trumps fidelity, the end result is inevitably betrayal - betrayal of country, of kith or kin, or of self. #Quote by Brian Andrews
Betrayal quotes by James Dashner
#171. The betrayal meant he couldn't trust her anymore, and his heart told him he couldn't forgive her. #Quote by James Dashner
Betrayal quotes by Sreesha Divakaran
#172. In that moment, hell may have ascended,
Or heaven may have descended only to save me and prove,
What I carry is an exaggerated memory of an imagined beautiful love.
This love is tainted with treachery; it will be my doom. #Quote by Sreesha Divakaran
Betrayal quotes by Sara  Taylor
#173. I realized how much it must suck to be a parent. You devote everything to your kids, who just end up growing up and disliking you. I felt bad for them briefly, but at least they had each other. In that moment I decided I wouldn't have kids. I don't think I could handle the level of betrayal I'd feel once I realized they weren't interested in me anymore. #Quote by Sara Taylor
Betrayal quotes by H.G.Wells
#174. The history of mankind," said Dreed, "has been a history of betrayals, the perennial betrayal of the common man by the men he has trusted."

"By the men the lazy, haphazard, childish oaf was too wilfully stupid to mistrust," said Bodisham. "The history of mankind from the very beginning has been a history of over-trusted trustees, corrupted by their unchecked opportunities. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Betrayal quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#175. Kindness is a source of relief to the soul of the giver, creating a sense of fortitude that is incomprehensible to those who do not know what kindness is all about. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Betrayal quotes by Jonathan Hickman
#176. We planned for betrayal. They planned for deceit. No one ever thought to plan for harmony. #Quote by Jonathan Hickman
Betrayal quotes by Tina Samples
#177. A woman will endure many wounds in her lifetime, but the betrayal of a friend is one of the most difficult to overcome. #Quote by Tina Samples
Betrayal quotes by Ralph Nader
#178. Ford Motor Company's sluggish and piecemeal approach to its automotive responsibilities betrays motorists' safety. #Quote by Ralph Nader
Betrayal quotes by Mandy Hale
#179. God never promised we wouldn't know pain. He isn't the author of it, but He isn't the bodyguard blocking it from us, either. Jesus Himself knew intense, agonizing pain. The worst kind, as a matter of fact. Betrayal. False accusations. A humiliating death on a cross for a crime He didn't commit. No, God never promised us we wouldn't know pain. That we wouldn't know Ground Zero moments and dark nights of the soul. What He DID promise was to be with us in the midst of our pain. #Quote by Mandy Hale
Betrayal quotes by Zadie Smith
#180. It's like that quote: 'If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country.' The choice between a duty or a principle, you know? #Quote by Zadie Smith
Betrayal quotes by Renee Dyer
#181. I always thought high school was supposed to be a time for finding yourself, but I guess that's only if you fit into the mold people have made for you. #Quote by Renee Dyer
Betrayal quotes by Veronica Roth
#182. Now it seems like no matter what I decide, I'll be betraying someone. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Betrayal quotes by Anna Akhmatova
#183. I drink to our ruined house, to the dolor of my life, to our loneliness together; and to you I raise my glass, to lying lips that have betrayed us, to dead-cold pitiless eyes, and to the hard realities; that the world is brutal and coarse, that God, in fact, has not saved us. #Quote by Anna Akhmatova
Betrayal quotes by Abigail Roux
#184. Two days ago, I was trying to decide how to ask him to marry me," Zane whispered. "Tonight I'm trying to figure out if I can even love someone like him. #Quote by Abigail Roux
Betrayal quotes by K.S. Villoso
#185. Betrayal has a funny way of turning your world upside-down. As familiar as I had already been with it by that point, it still amazed me how far I could stretch that moment of denial. The thought of what had been - of what could yet be - persisted. Perhaps it is not the same for most people. Perhaps, when you love less, it is easier not to let the emptiness become a cavern from which you could no longer see the sun. #Quote by K.S. Villoso
Betrayal quotes by Marissa Meyer
#186. Cinder flexed her tongue, testing it, and raised her voice."I am princess Selene."
Levana leaned forward. "Your are an impostor!"
"And I am ready to claim what's mine. People of Artemisia, this is your chance. Renounce Levana as your queen and swear fealty to me, or I swear that when I wear that crown, very person in this room will be punished for their betrayal. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Betrayal quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#187. The attack of an enemy is easier to fend off than the betrayal of a friend. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Betrayal quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#188. When faced with difficulties, a humble, understanding, appreciative and selfless person finds it easy to win a friend. On the other hand, a temperamental, egoistic, condensing, self-absorbed, self-conceited and narrow-minded person who lacks the basic sense of humility easily loses friends when in distress. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Betrayal quotes by Susan Vreeland
#189. I had always held the notion that if two people love the same thing, they must love each other as well, but now the memories of that love had been tarnished by betrayal. #Quote by Susan Vreeland
Betrayal quotes by Irum Zahra
#190. I grow weary of the love
That lasts for a night
When it should be there
The next sunrise #Quote by Irum Zahra
Betrayal quotes by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
#191. A man can't talk of true happiness if he has never known true love - the trusting, selfless and unconditional love that I took for granted. #Quote by Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Betrayal quotes by John Geddes
#192. You betrayed me, but after all those years I discover, my tears have wiped the slate clean ... #Quote by John Geddes
Betrayal quotes by Jhumpa Lahiri
#193. Unlike her parents, and her other relatives, her grandmother had not admonished Ashima not to eat beef or wear skirts or cut off her hair or forget her family the moment she landed in Boston. Her grandmother had not been fearful of such signs of betrayal; she was the only person to predict, rightly, that Ashima would never change. #Quote by Jhumpa Lahiri
Betrayal quotes by James Connolly
#194. Such a scheme.. the betrayal of the national democracy of Industrial Ulster, would mean a carnival of reaction both North and South, would set back the wheels of progress, would destroy the oncoming unity of the Irish labour movement and paralyse all advanced movements while it lasted. #Quote by James Connolly
Betrayal quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#195. Trust of others is in short supply for many adult survivors, as complex trauma generally involves major relational betrayal. It is, therefore, expectable (although paradoxical) that clients with these histories are predisposed to be mistrustful at the outset of therapy, precisely because of (and in proportion to) the actual trustworthiness of the therapist. When past experiences have thought hard lessons, namely, that one can least afford to trust the people who should be most trustworthy, it stands to reason that confusion about trust results. The therapist must understand and not take offense either personally or professionally and not react judgmentally or defensively. Practically speaking, this involves the therapist being prepared to patiently and empathically respond to active or passive tests or challenges to trustworthiness as legitimate and meaningful communication that deserves a respectful reply in action as well as in words. #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Betrayal quotes by Elena Ferrante
#196. It wasn't innocent blood. To my father nothing about Amalia ever seemed innocent. He, so furious, so bitter and yet so eager for pleasure, so irascible and so egotistical, couldn't bear that she had a friendly, at times even joyful, relationship with the world. He recognized in it a trace of betrayal. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Betrayal quotes by Donna Schoenrock
#197. Sometimes, instead of being hurt, you should look at betrayal as a gift. It makes it that much easier to sweep it up and toss it out with the rest of the trash. And why is that you ask? Because trash starts to stink ... and when it does, it has no more value in your life. #Quote by Donna Schoenrock
Betrayal quotes by Oli Sykes
#198. If I had it my way I'd slit your throat with the knife that you left in my back. #Quote by Oli Sykes
Betrayal quotes by Albert Camus
#199. Christ, for Nietzsche as for Tolstoy, is not a rebel. The essence of His doctrine is
summed up in total consent and in nonresistance to evil. Thou shalt not kill, even to prevent killing. The
world must be accepted as it is, nothing must be added to its unhappiness, but you must consent to suffer
personally from the evil it contains. The kingdom of heaven is within our immediate reach. It is only an
inner inclination which allows us to make our actions coincide with these principles and which can give
us immediate salvation. Not faith but deeds - that, according to Nietzsche, is Christ's message. From then
on, the history of Christianity is nothing but a long betrayal of
this message. The New Testament is already corrupted, and from the time of Paul to the Councils,
subservience to faith leads to the neglect of deeds. #Quote by Albert Camus
Betrayal quotes by Grace Draven
#200. My dear, treacherous mother," he breathed. "What have you done? #Quote by Grace Draven
