Better Things quotes by Angela Flournoy
#1. I don't just sit around hopin for nothing. I do shit. It's the 'hope' part that fucks that line all up. You should change it to somethin like, 'We fight for better things,' or 'We work for better things.' Or 'We plan for better things.' That's what's wrong with this city; it ain't about the mayor. Too many people busy hoping shit will get better to actually figure out a way to make shit better. #Quote by Angela Flournoy
Better Things quotes by Prem Jagyasi
#2. There is nothing wrong with thinking of ways to acquire wealth, get richer, and move up in the world. We should always strive to do better things and improve our status in society. #Quote by Prem Jagyasi
Better Things quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#3. The only writing that was any good was what you made up, what you imagined. That made everything come true. Everything good he had ever written he'd made up. None of it had ever happened. Other things had happened. Better things, maybe. That was what the family couldn't understand. They thought it was all experience. Nick in the stories was never himself. He made him up. Of course he had never seen an Indian woman having a baby. That was what made it good. Nobody knew that. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Better Things quotes by Drake
#4. My ex ask me where I'm moving I said 'On to better things.' #Quote by Drake
Better Things quotes by Gerard Donovan
#5. I saw battles in their eyes long forgotten by many,and never known to some, and observed some of them fall with him into that hole in the ground, I mean the part of them that remembered the fear and the rubble of distant towns, or the part that had hoped for better things afterwards. The soldier who fights always hopes that way,my grandfather said, but its those who dont fight who get to decide what things will come #Quote by Gerard Donovan
Better Things quotes by George MacDonald
#6. Ah, but, dear North Wind, you don't know how nice it is to feel your arms about me. It is a thousand times better to have them and the wind together, than to have only your hair and the back of your neck and no wind at all."

"But it is surely more comfortable there?"

"Well, perhaps; but I begin to think there are better things than being comfortable."

"Yes, indeed there are. Well, I will keep you in front of me. You will feel the wind, but not too much. I shall only want one arm to take care of you; the other will be quite enough to sink the ship."

"Oh, dear North Wind! how can you talk so?"

"My dear boy, I never talk; I always mean what I say."

"Then you do mean to sink the ship with the other hand?"

"Yes."

"It's not like you."

"How do you know that?"

"Quite easily. Here you are taking care of a poor little boy with one arm, and there you are sinking a ship with the other. It can't be like you."

"Ah! but which is me? I can't be two mes, you know."

"No. Nobody can be two mes."

"Well, which me is me?"

"Now I must think. There looks to be two."

"Yes. That's the very point. - You can't be knowing the thing you don't know, can you?"

"No."

"Which me do you know?"

"The kindest, goodest, best me in the world," answered Diamond, clinging to North Wind.

"Why am I good to you?"
#Quote by George MacDonald
Better Things quotes by Oscar Wilde
#7. Despotism is unjust to everybody, including the despot, who was probably made for better things. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Better Things quotes by Ally Carter
#8. Yes?' Joe Solomon sounded like someone with far better things to do. 'Is there any homework?' she asked, and the class turned instantly from shocked to irritated. (Never ask that question in a room full of girls who are all black belts in karate) 'Yes,' Solomon said, holding the door in the universal signal for get out. 'Notice things. #Quote by Ally Carter
Better Things quotes by Olivia Waite
#9. Why cast about for artful phrases when there were much better things to do with one's mouth? #Quote by Olivia Waite
Better Things quotes by Mac Miller
#10. They're gonna try to tell you no, shatter all your dreams. But you gotta get up and go and think of better things. #Quote by Mac Miller
Better Things quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#11. But I've still better things about children. I've collected a great, great deal about Russian children, Alyosha. There was a little girl of five who was hated by her father and mother, 'most worthy and respectable people, of good education and breeding.' You see, I must repeat again, it is a peculiar characteristic of many people, this love of torturing children, and children only. To all other types of humanity these torturers behave mildly and benevolently, like cultivated and humane Europeans; but they are very fond of tormenting children, even fond of children themselves in that sense. it's just their defencelessness that tempts the tormentor, just the angelic confidence of the child who has no refuge and no appeal, that sets his vile blood on fire. In every man, of course, a demon lies hidden- the demon of rage, the demon of lustful heat at the screams of the tortured victim, the demon of lawlessness let off the chain, the demon of diseases that follow on vice, gout, kidney disease, and so on.
"This poor child of five was subjected to every possible torture by those cultivated parents. They beat her, thrashed her, kicked her for no reason till her body was one bruise. Then, they went to greater refinements of cruelty- shut her up all night in the cold and frost in a privy, and because she didn't ask to be taken up at night (as though a child of five sleeping its angelic, sound sleep could be trained to wake and ask), they smeared her face and filled her mouth with e #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Better Things quotes by Miles Franklin
#12. I'm sure it's not any wish of mine that I'm born with inclinations for better things. If I could be born again, and had the designing of myself, I'd be born the lowest and coarsest-minded person imaginable, so that I could find plenty of companionship, or I'd be born an idiot, which would be better still. #Quote by Miles Franklin
Better Things quotes by Wentworth Miller
#13. You're confronted with the quandary: do I grind things to a halt? Ideally you would, but I have better things to do than educate people. #Quote by Wentworth Miller
Better Things quotes by Andy Behrman
#14. I think almost all manic depressives exhibit some kind of criminal behaviour, even if it's something as minimal as shoplifting, but then they often go on to bigger and better things - in my case, it was fraud. #Quote by Andy Behrman
Better Things quotes by Tamora Pierce
#15. Ishabal: "If you may correct your vision as you like, why do you wear spectacles?"
Tris: "Because I like them. Because I have better things to do with my magic than fixing my vision when ordinary glass will do. #Quote by Tamora Pierce
Better Things quotes by Bernice Fitz-Gibbon
#16. Advertising prods people into wanting more and better things. Of course advertising makes people dissatisfied with what they have - makes them raise their sights. Mighty good thing it does. Nothing could be worse for the United States than 200,000,000 satisfied Americans. #Quote by Bernice Fitz-Gibbon
Better Things quotes by Boonaa Mohammed
#17. Being rejected from something good just means that Allah is pointing you to something better #Quote by Boonaa Mohammed
Better Things quotes by Christopher Paolini
#18. The debate raged on for so long, at last Saphira had interrupted with a roar that shook the walls of the command tent. Then she said, I am sore and tired, and Eragon is doing a poor job of explaining himself. We have better things to do than stand around yammering like jackdaws, no? ... Good now listen to me.
It was reflected Eragon, hard to argue with a dragon. #Quote by Christopher Paolini
Better Things quotes by Karl Wiggins
#19. The majority of these old farts are content to crash out in a drunken stupor on the backbenches. They just want to pick up their company directorships at £200,000 a year, claim for everything they ever spend personally on expenses and make sure not to rock the boat. I have better things to do with my time than to waste it by voting a different yarn-spinning joker-in-the-pack in. Whoever's in power is not going to affect me in any way. And if you believe otherwise then you can truly nail your colours to the mast of stupidity #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Better Things quotes by John Harvey-Jones
#20. The task of industry is continuously, year on year, to make more and better things, using less of the world's resources. #Quote by John Harvey-Jones
Better Things quotes by Van Jones
#21. Our point of view is, lets not be so elitist that we can't honor good, hard, dignified, ennobling work: people working with their hands, building things, putting up solar panels, weatherizing homes, working on organic agriculture, building wind farms. We don't have robots in society, so somebody has to do that work. Lets make sure that the people who can use that work get a chance to do it. I see that as a first step toward bigger and better things. #Quote by Van Jones
Better Things quotes by Amanda Donohoe
#22. Women's lives get more interesting the older they get. For some reason, when you hit 35, it turns into a grey area filmically. There's not much more until you start playing grannies. I'm not ready for that. I'm just naffed off that, between 35 and 50, there aren't better things about. #Quote by Amanda Donohoe
Better Things quotes by Ryan Graudin
#23. Kids with roofs and hot food have better things to do than play survival of the thuggiest. #Quote by Ryan Graudin
Better Things quotes by Steve Goodier
#24. The world can use more light and less noise. More solvers and fewer blamers. More folks showing a better way and fewer folks complaining about how much better things used to be. More folks offering help and fewer folks wringing their hands about the problems. More hope bringers and fewer hope killers. #Quote by Steve Goodier
Better Things quotes by Tanith Lee
#25. Madness. I did not get myself born to die. I have better things to do. #Quote by Tanith Lee
Better Things quotes by Mark Vonnegut
#26. For me to have sat around calling the crazy stuff "crazy" would have been the most wasteful, unimaginative thing I could have done. There were so many much better things to do with it. #Quote by Mark Vonnegut
Better Things quotes by H.G.Wells
#27. And then," said Sarnac, "I remember that I made a prophecy. I made it - when did I make it? Two thousand years ago? Or two weeks ago? I sat in Fanny's little sitting-room, an old-world creature amidst her old-world furnishings, and I said that men and women would not always suffer as we were suffering then. I said that we were still poor savages, living only in the bleak dawn of civilisation, and that we suffered because we were under-bred, under-trained and darkly ignorant of ourselves, that the mere fact that we knew our own unhappiness was the promise of better things and that a day would come when charity and understanding would light the world so that men and women would no longer hurt themselves and one another as they were doing now everywhere, universally, in law and in restriction and in jealousy and in hate, all round and about the earth. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Better Things quotes by Richard Schmid
#28. Make your art a gift of inspiration to others to work toward better things. #Quote by Richard Schmid
Better Things quotes by Anthony Esolen
#29. If we loved children, we would have a few. If we had them, we would want them as children, and would love the wonder with which they behold the world, and would hope some of it might open our eyes a little. We would love their games, and would want to play them once in a while, stirring in ourselves those memories of play that no one regrets, and that are almost the only things an old man can look back on with complete satisfaction. We would want children tagging along after us, or if not, then only because we would understand that they had better things to do. #Quote by Anthony Esolen
Better Things quotes by Bob Moorehead
#30. The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relatio #Quote by Bob Moorehead
Better Things quotes by Kalup Linzy
#31. People say if you keep making work and keep putting it out, better things will come. I think artists should never forget that. I think that's what you have to be committed to if you're an artist, that's where the good feelings come from. It's so easy to get caught up in other stuff, like the business part of it. If you just have to be aware, just keep putting it out there. #Quote by Kalup Linzy
Better Things quotes by J.K. Rowling
#32. Now if you excuse me, I have better things to do than listen to adolescent agonizing. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Better Things quotes by K.A. Linde
#33. And as angry as I am with what you have put me through, I am so very glad that we are now at this moment. This moment means I can move on to bigger and better things without you constantly weighing on my shoulders.
I will never again turn a corner in New York terrified that I will run into you and even more terrified that I won't. I can go into any coffee shop I want. I can hope for love again. #Quote by K.A. Linde
Better Things quotes by John Clapham
#34. Economic history is the most fundamental branch of history; not the most important. Foundations exist to carry better things. #Quote by John Clapham
Better Things quotes by Joseph Conrad
#35. extraordinary series of delays is not my fault. I did my possible.' The fat man sighed, 'Very sad.' 'And the pestiferous absurdity of his talk,' continued the other; 'he bothered me enough when he was here. "Each station should be like a beacon on the road towards better things, a center for trade of course, but also for humanizing, improving, instructing." Conceive you - that ass! And he wants to be manager! No, it's - ' Here he got choked by excessive indignation, and I lifted my head the least #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Better Things quotes by Mark Manson. “The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck.”
#36. self-improvement" is really about: prioritizing better values, choosing
better things to give a fuck about. Because when you give better fucks, you get better problems. And
when you get better problems, you get a better life. #Quote by Mark Manson. “The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck.”
Better Things quotes by Heather Cardin
#37. Many years ago I developed a theory of mutual exclusivity. I had observed in my own life that either God solved a problem or I solved the problem but both God and I did not work on the same problem at the same time. If I decided to solve it then God had better things to do than to help me. If I decided to turn the problem over to God then God would resolve the issue. When I refer to my solving the problem, I am referring to taking wilful action and deciding what the correct resolution is. If my family needs food, go out and work to earn money and feed them. There is a great difference between detachment and doing nothing. #Quote by Heather Cardin
Better Things quotes by Ice Cube
#38. My thing is: stay creative. And just because somebody starts to pay you, that don't mean all your creativity goes to that, and you don't save none for yourself to be able to do other, bigger and better things and still follow your dreams even if you start off inside of a box. #Quote by Ice Cube
Better Things quotes by Kresley Cole
#39. I told him what I told myself whenever my guilt grew too painful: "It happened. It hurt. Better things await you. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Better Things quotes by Seneca The Younger
#40. Death either destroys or unhusks us. If it means liberation, better things await us when our burden s gone: if destruction, nothing at all awaits us; blessings and curses are abolished. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Better Things quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#41. Our Lord did not ask us to give up the things of earth, but to exchange them for better things. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Better Things quotes by Willa Cather
#42. Men travel faster now, but I do not know if they go to better things. #Quote by Willa Cather
Better Things quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#43. If thou findest in human life anything better than justice, truth, temperance, fortitude, and, in a word, anything better than thy own mind's self-satisfaction in the things which it enables thee to do according to right reason, and in the condition that is assigned to thee without thy own choice; if, I say, thou seest anything better than this, turn to it with all thy soul, and enjoy that which thou hast found to be the best. But if nothing appears to be better than the deity which is planted in thee, which has subjected to itself all thy appetites, and carefully examines all the impressions, and, as Socrates said, has detached itself from the persuasions of sense, and has submitted itself to the gods, and cares for mankind; if thou findest everything else smaller and of less value than this, give place to nothing else, for if thou dost once diverge and incline to it, thou wilt no longer without distraction be able to give the preference to that good thing which is thy proper possession and thy own; for it is not right that anything of any other kind, such as praise from the many, or power, or enjoyment of pleasure, should come into competition with that which is rationally and politically or practically good. All these things, even though they may seem to adapt themselves to the better things in a small degree, obtain the superiority all at once, and carry us away. But do thou, I say, simply and freely choose the better, and hold to it.- But that which is useful is the bett #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Better Things quotes by Miya Yamanouchi
#44. Resistance, in the form of opposition or lack of support from others is often a sign telling you to move forward and on to bigger and better things. #Quote by Miya Yamanouchi
Better Things quotes by Mason Cooley
#45. If you do not throw in a few promises of better things to come, gloomy one, I am going to take you back to the library. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Better Things quotes by Jo Nesbø
#46. He was talking nonstop. When had it happened? When had the boy turned eleven and decided to like music about various stages of death, alienation, freezing and general doom? Perhaps it ought to have worried Harry, but it didn't. It was a starting point, a curiosity that had to be satisfied, clothes the boy had to try on to see if they fit. Other things would come along. Better things. Worse things. #Quote by Jo Nesbø
Better Things quotes by Andy Weir
#47. Since then, I've added my own shit to it as well. The worse it smells, the better things are going. That's the bacteria at work! #Quote by Andy Weir
Better Things quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#48. Dreams or illusions, call them what you will, they lift us from the commonplace of life to better things. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Better Things quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#49. Ambition is an uncomfortable companion many times. He creates a discontent with present surroundings and achievements; he is never satisfied but always pressing forward to better things in the future. Restless, energetic, purposeful, it is ambition that makes of the creature a real man. #Quote by Lyndon B. Johnson
Better Things quotes by Chris Vonada
#50. There are always far better things ahead than what we will leave behind. #Quote by Chris Vonada
Better Things quotes by David F. Wells
#51. There is a breeze blowing. I see it in the deep discontent that is being voiced with the threadbare state of the evangelical world, with its empty worship, its market-driven superficiality, and its trivial thought. It is a breeze blowing toward better, deeper, more honest things. I suspect that it is the Holy Spirit who is blowing, that this is his breeze, and that these leaves that are shaking are the signs of better things to come within an evangelical faith that is thus being reformed. Let us all pray that it is so! #Quote by David F. Wells
Better Things quotes by Charles Dickens
#52. "Walter," she said, looking full upon him with her affectionate eyes, "like you, I hope for better things. I will pray for them, and believe that they will arrive." #Quote by Charles Dickens
Better Things quotes by George MacDonald
#53. Well, perhaps; but I begin to think there are better things than being comfortable. #Quote by George MacDonald
Better Things quotes by Gift Gugu Mona
#54. Losing will not always amount to a loss, sometimes you have to lose those toxic relationships and bad habits to create a space for better things. #Quote by Gift Gugu Mona
Better Things quotes by Robert Tressell
#55. The revulsion of feeling that Barrington experienced during the
progress of the election was intensified by the final result. The
blind, stupid, enthusiastic admiration displayed by the philanthropists
for those who exploited and robbed them; their extraordinary apathy
with regard to their own interests; the patient, broken-spirited way in
which they endured their sufferings, tamely submitting to live in
poverty in the midst of the wealth they had helped to create; their
callous indifference to the fate of their children, and the savage
hatred they exhibited towards anyone who dared to suggest the
possibility of better things, forced upon him the thought that the
hopes he cherished were impossible of realization. The words of the
renegade Socialist recurred constantly to his mind:
'You can be a Jesus Christ if you like, but for my part I'm finished.
For the future I intend to look after myself. As for these people,
they vote for what they want, they get what they vote for, and, by God!
they deserve nothing better! They are being beaten with whips of their
own choosing, and if I had my way they should be chastised with
scorpions. For them, the present system means joyless drudgery,
semi-starvation, rags and premature death; and they vote for it and
uphold it. Let them have what they vote for! Let them drudge and let
them starve! #Quote by Robert Tressell
Better Things quotes by Ronald Gan
#56. Rejection often leads to better things. Better things. Sometimes, they are unthinkable. #Quote by Ronald Gan
Better Things quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#57. Please know that there are much better things in life than being lonely or liked or bitter or mean or self conscious. We are all full of shit. Go love someone just because, I know your heart may be badly bruised, or even the victim of numerous knifings but it will always heal even if you don't want it to, it keeps going. There are the most fantastic, beautiful things and people out there, I promise. It's up to you to find them. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Better Things quotes by Michael J. Fox
#58. My notion of spirituality was different than it is now, but even if I'd been the most fundamentalist of believers, I would have assumed that God had better things to do than arbitrarily smite me with shaking palsy. #Quote by Michael J. Fox
Better Things quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#59. To gain anything we have longed for is only to discover how vain and empty it is; and even though we are always living in expectation of better things, at the same time we often repent and long to have the past back again. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Better Things quotes by Susan Ee
#60. Why don't you want it?" "I have better things to do." "Like what?" He opens one eye and looks at me. "Like convince a stubborn girl to admit she's madly in love with me." I can't help but smile. #Quote by Susan Ee
Better Things quotes by Angelina Jolie
#61. Where ever I am I always find myself looking out the window wishing I was somewhere else. #Quote by Angelina Jolie
Better Things quotes by John Podhoretz
#62. There's no light at the end of the tunnel in the Republican message, no promise of better things to come. There's only the present stagnation, followed by a slow decline. #Quote by John Podhoretz
Better Things quotes by Rachel Hawthorne
#63. Are you driving?" I asked Sam.
"Nope. I plan to do some drinking," Sam said.
"You're not old enough," I reminded him.
"Never stopped me before."
"Sam!"
He halted and glared at me. "What? You gonna tattle to Mom and Dad?"
Was I? No. But he didn't know that. Besides, as irritating as my brother was, he was good for one thing: blackmail. And it was payback time for the snowball he'd hit me with yesterday.
"Not if you make a contribution to the Kate-have-a-good-time fund."
"Ah, Kate, come on. I'm not hurting anyone. I'm a responsible drinker."
"How can you be responsible if you're breaking the law?"
"I don't drive when I drink. No one gets hurt except me, if I happen to fall flat on my face."
"You get that drunk?"
"I've got better things to do than discuss my life with you." He reached into his back pocket and pulled out his wallet. "How much?"
"Twenty should do it."
"Five."
"Ten."
He held out the bill that had one of my favorite presidents on it. "You know, Kate, no one likes a snitch."
I snatched it from his fingers, folded it up, and shoved it into the front pocket of my jeans. "Payback's a bitch, Brother."
"What?"
"I wouldn't have tattled. But I didn't like getting hit with a snowball yesterday, either. So now we're even."
He snapped his fingers. "Give it back."
"Nope. Possession is nine-tenths of the law."
"You don't even know what that means."
"And I suppose y #Quote by Rachel Hawthorne
Better Things quotes by Elizabeth Davis
#64. Concern with labor's length began in hospital, where a prompt turnover of beds was of practical and financial concern. Next came practitioner impatience: doctors with overbusy schedules or better things to do than wait around for women to give birth wanted to define how long was too long. #Quote by Elizabeth Davis
Better Things quotes by John Mark Green
#65. Your life will consist of a series of times when you must reinvent yourself. We desperately cling to the idea that things should stay the same, but life and growth are about change. Don't mistake the end of a chapter for the end of the story. Lean into the plot changes, and follow your character arc. If you are in a dark part of your tale, know that this night will not last forever, but you must be brave enough to see it through. This is not the end, oh no my friend. Take courage. Better things await you. #Quote by John Mark Green
Better Things quotes by Isaac D'Israeli
#66. Quotations, like much better things, has its abuses. #Quote by Isaac D'Israeli
Better Things quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#67. With self-denial and economy now, and steady self-exertion by-and-by, and object in life need not fail you. Venture not to complain that such an object is too selfish, too limited, and lacks interest; be content to labout for independence until you have proved, by winning that prize, your right to look higher. But afterwards, is there nothing more for me in life - no true home - nothing to be dearer to me than myself, and by its paramount preciousness, to draw from me better things than I care to culture for myself only? Nothing, at whose feet I can willingly lay down the whole burden of human egotism, and gloriously take up the nobler charge of labouring and living for others? #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Better Things quotes by Rodney Brooks
#68. I see robotic technology getting rid of the dangerous, the dirty, and the just plain boring jobs. Some people say, 'You can't. People won't have anything to do.' But we found things that were a lot easier than backbreaking labor in the sun and the fields. Let people rise to better things. #Quote by Rodney Brooks
Better Things quotes by Robin Leach
#69. I helped launch 'ET' ... I like to see things start, grow, and then move on to better things. #Quote by Robin Leach
Better Things quotes by Albert Pike
#70. There are greater and better things in us all, than the world takes account of, or than we take note of; if we would but find them out. #Quote by Albert Pike
Better Things quotes by PZ Myers
#71. Rational people have better things to do than grant unwarranted credibility to every half-assed delusion. #Quote by PZ Myers
Better Things quotes by Drake
#72. Kush rolled, glass full, I prefer the better things. #Quote by Drake
Better Things quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#73. You're important with your green eyes looking at me like I mean something. It's okay that you have better things to do. It's enough that I get you sometimes. Once in a while. I know I'm lucky for that, to get you just a little #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Better Things quotes by Gavin De Becker
#74. (On a personal note, even though I have a professional interest in hazard and risk, I never watch the local television news and haven't for years. Try this and you'll likely find better things to do before going to sleep than looking at thirty minutes of disturbing images presented with artificial urgency and the usually false implication that it's critical for you to see it.) #Quote by Gavin De Becker
Better Things quotes by Mark Manson
#75. This, in a nutshell, is what "self-improvement" is really about: prioritizing better values, choosing better things to give a fuck about. Because when you give better fucks, you get better problems. And when you get better problems, #Quote by Mark Manson
Better Things quotes by Derek Hough
#76. LEADING LESSONS
There is success in every step you take.

When you take pride in every accomplishment--no matter how small--you create momentum and it builds to bigger and better things. #Quote by Derek Hough
Better Things quotes by Rochelle Paige
#77. I'm pretty sure my baby girl has better things to do with you than keep you on your toes. #Quote by Rochelle Paige
Better Things quotes by Ashley Scott
#78. I started walking at night with my sister in law which has been amazing. It really does something for you. It just kind of clears the mind, it just makes you feel better, things start to tighten a little bit. #Quote by Ashley Scott
Better Things quotes by Mark Manson
#79. The better things get, the more we perceive threats where there are none, and the more upset we become. And it is at the heart of the paradox of progress. #Quote by Mark Manson
Better Things quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#80. To attain something desired is to discover how vain it is; and ... though we live all our lives in expectation of better things, we often at the same time long regretfully for what is past. The present, on the other hand, is regarded as something quite temporary and serving only as the road to our goal. That is why most men discover when they look back on their life that they have the whole time been living ad interim, and are surprised to see that which they let go by so unregarded and unenjoyed was precisely their life, was precisely in expectation of which they lived. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Better Things quotes by Richelle Mead
#81. I hope I redeemed myself with the whole dancing-sex comparison."
"I suppose there were a couple of notable similarities," I observed, holding a straight face.
"A couple? What about attention to detail, heavy exertion, lots of sweat, and single-minded determinedness to get the job done and done well?"
"Mostly I was thinking you just don't talk during sex." Mean perhaps, but I couldn't resist.
"Well, my mouth has better things to do."
I swallowed, my own mouth dry. "Are we still talking about dancing? #Quote by Richelle Mead
Better Things quotes by Jamie Tworkowski
#82. You'll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else. You will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things. #Quote by Jamie Tworkowski
Better Things quotes by Albert Einstein
#83. When you look at yourself from a universal standpoint, something inside always reminds or informs you that there are bigger and better things to worry about. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Better Things quotes by Seneca.
#84. But happy is the man who has given it this impulse toward better things! He will place himself beyond the jurisdiction of chance; he will wisely control prosperity; he will lessen adversity, and will despise what others hold in admiration. It is the quality of a great soul to scorn great things and to prefer that which is ordinary rather than that which is too great. For the one condition is useful and lifegiving; but the other does harm just because it is excessive. #Quote by Seneca.
Better Things quotes by Joyce Meyer
#85. What do you do when disappointment comes? When it weighs on you like a rock, you can either let it press you down until you become discouraged, even devastated, or you can use it as a stepping-stone to better things. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Better Things quotes by Virgil
#86. Endure the present, and watch for better things. #Quote by Virgil
Better Things quotes by Albert Ellis
#87. Whenever you have strong negative feelings because unfortunate things are actually happening to you or you imagine that they might occur, see whether these feelings healthfully follow from your wishes and desires to have better things occur. Or are you creating them by going beyond your preferences and inventing powerful shoulds, oughts, musts, demands, commands, and necessities? If so, you are turning concern and caution into overconcern, severe anxiety, and panic. Observe the real difference in your feelings! #Quote by Albert Ellis
Better Things quotes by William Morris
#88. If our houses, or clothes, our household furniture and utensils are not works of art, they are either wretched makeshifts, or, what is worse, degrading shams of better things. #Quote by William Morris
Better Things quotes by Stephen King
#89. could make them laugh, and although he couldn't make them like him, that was absolutely okay. They were dead-enders headed for dead-end marriages and dead-end jobs. They would raise dead-end kids and dandle dead-end grandkids before coming to their own dead ends in dead-end hospitals and nursing homes, rocketing off into darkness believing they had lived the American Dream and Jesus would meet them at the gates of heaven with the Welcome Wagon. Morris was meant for better things. He just didn't know what they were. #Quote by Stephen King
Better Things quotes by Jeffrey Donovan
#90. I could never say I'm going to do bigger and better things because that would negate what I've already accomplished, and I don't want to do that. #Quote by Jeffrey Donovan
Better Things quotes by Steven Pinker
#91. At every moment we choose, consciously or unconsciously, between good things now and better things later. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Better Things quotes by Melina Marchetta
#92. There are worse things than a lie and there are better things than the truth! #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Better Things quotes by Richard Cecil
#93. Our Heavenly Father always sends His children the things they ask, or better things. #Quote by Richard Cecil
Better Things quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#94. It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
Better Things quotes by Meryl Streep
#95. For young women, I would say don't worry so much about your weight. Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things. For young men, and women, too, what makes you different or weird-that's your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way, and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up. I used to hate my nose. Now I don't. It's OK. #Quote by Meryl Streep
Better Things quotes by Emma Goldman
#96. Under miserable conditions of life, any vision of the possibility of better things makes the present misery more intolerable, and spurs those who suffer to the most energetic struggles to improve their lot, and if these struggles only immediately result in sharper misery, the outcome is sheer desperation. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Better Things quotes by Roger Zelazny
#97. Hell, we make our own ifs. I had better things to think about than what could have happened #Quote by Roger Zelazny
Better Things quotes by Leigh Ann Lunsford
#98. I wonder if she'll wish she'd chased dreams she didn't know she had. Will she wake up one day after being with me and wish she had moved on to bigger and better things? #Quote by Leigh Ann Lunsford
Better Things quotes by Oskar Homolka
#99. To really enjoy the better things in life, one must first have experienced the things they are better than. #Quote by Oskar Homolka
Better Things quotes by J.R. Ward
#100. Phury lit a blunt and eyed the sixteen cans of Aqua Net that were lined up on Butch and V's coffee table.
"What's doing with the hair spray? You boys going drag on us?"
Butch held up the lenght of PVC pipe he was punching a hole in.
"Potato launcher, my man. Big fun."
"Excuse me ?"
"Didn't you ever go to summer camp ?"
"Basket weaving and woodcarving are for humans. No offense, but we have better things to teach our youngs. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Better Things quotes by Joyce Meyer
#101. If we continue to believe God and place our trust in Him, bad things ultimately give way to better things. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Better Things quotes by Friedrich A. Hayek
#102. If all had to wait for better things until they could be provided for all, that day would in many instances never come. Even the poorest today owe their relative material well-being to the results of past inequality. #Quote by Friedrich A. Hayek
Better Things quotes by Marilyn Monroe
#103. Sometimes things fall apart so that better things can fall together #Quote by Marilyn Monroe
Better Things quotes by Rumi
#104. Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place. #Quote by Rumi
Better Things quotes by Janet Evanovich
#105. You sure you don't want to go?" Grandma Mazur asked my mother.
"I didn't know Moogey Bues," my mother told her. "I've got better things to do than to go to a viewing of a perfect stranger."
"I wouldn't go either," Grandma Mazur said, "but I'm helping Stephanie with this here manhunt. Maybe Kenny Mancuso will show up, and Stephanie will need some extra muscle. I was watching Television, and I saw how you stick your fingers in a person's eyes to slow them down."
"She's your responsibility," my mother said to me. "She sticks her fingers in anybody's eyes I'm holding you accountable. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Better Things quotes by Ralph Waldo Trine
#106. This is the law of prosperity: When apparent adversity comes, be not cast down by it, but make the best of it, and always look forward for better things, for conditions more prosperous. To hold yourself in this attitude of mind is to set into operation subtle, silent, and irresistible forces that sooner or later will actualize in material form that which is today merely an idea. But ideas have occult power, and ideas, when rightly planted and rightly tended, are the seeds that actualize material conditions. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Trine
Better Things quotes by Brian Moore
#107. And maybe, although it was a thing you could hardly bear to think about, like death or your last judgment, maybe he would be the last one ever and he would walk away now and it would only be a question of waiting for it all to end and hoping for better things in the next world. But that was silly, it was never too late. #Quote by Brian Moore
Better Things quotes by Michael Symon
#108. Go to the grocery store and buy better things. Buy quality, buy organic, buy natural, go to the farmers market. Immediately that's going to increase the quality of the food you make. #Quote by Michael Symon
Better Things quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#109. I've lost my wild heart once. Twice. Too many times to count.

I've lost her most often when I've forgotten myself, when I've denied my own truths, when I've pushed down the need to create for so long that my heart...she finds better things to do.

The funny thing is, that the losing and the finding are interwoven.

We must lose our wild hearts from time to time, I believe.

We must so that we know why we need them.

We must so that we remember that in order to be found we must go into the wilderness.
Sometimes, it is only in the getting lost that we can find our way back home. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Better Things quotes by James MacDonald
#110. It doesn't matter what has happened, better things are coming. God's plan produces hope in me. #Quote by James MacDonald
Better Things quotes by Tryon Edwards
#111. We never reach our ideals, whether of mental or moral improvement, but the thought of them shows us our deficiencies, and spurs us on to higher and better things. #Quote by Tryon Edwards
Better Things quotes by Audrey Hepburn
#112. I hope for better things, and I thank God the world is also full of people who want to be genuine and kind. #Quote by Audrey Hepburn
Better Things quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#113. It just seems there's better things to do in your life than be on television if it's not interesting, if it's not challenging, if it's not fun. You know? When it stops being those things for me, I'll stop making television. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Better Things quotes by Ron Baratono
#114. As we get better at knowing God's love, we grow into better things that surround our lives. #Quote by Ron Baratono
Better Things quotes by MariJo Moore
#115. Firewater Sometimes I think how alcohol's a marvelous solvent, can remove red people from a continent, turn bronze to guilt.

Better Things quotes by Frantz Fanon
#116. I am a man and what I have to recapture is the whole past of the world, I am not responsible only for the slavery involved in Santo Domingo, every time man has contributed to the victory of the dignity of the spirit, every time a man has said no to an attempt to subjugate his fellows, I have felt solidarity with his act. In no way does my basic vocation have to be drawn from the past of peoples of color. In no way do I have to dedicate myself to reviving some black civilization unjustly ignored. I will not make myself the man of any past. My black skin is not a repository for specific values. Haven't I got better things to do on this earth than avenge the blacks of the 17th century?

I as a man of color do not have the right to hope that in the white man there will be a crystallization of guilt towards the past of my race. I as a man of color do not have the right of stamping down the pride of my former master. I have neither the right nor the duty to demand reparations for my subjugated ancestors. There is no black mission. There is no white burden. I do not want to be victim to the rules of a black world. Am I going to ask this white man to answer for the slave traders of the 17th century? Am I going to try by every means available to cause guilt to burgeon in their souls? I am not a slave to slavery that dehumanized my ancestors. It would be of enormous interest to discover a black literature or architecture from the 3rd century B.C, we would be overjoyed to lea #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Better Things quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#117. He lifted a brow. "Is it that hard for you to even try in front of me?"
"You're a High Lord - don't you have better things to do?"
"Of course. But none as enjoyable as seeing you squirm."
"You're a real bastard, you know that?"
Rhys huffed a laugh. "I've been called worse. In fact, I think you've called me worse. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Better Things quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#118. There is nothing beyond God, and the sense enjoyments are simply something through which we are passing now in the hope of getting better things. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Better Things quotes by Ovid

Better Things quotes by Jack Canfield

Better Things quotes by Melanie Sangalang
#123. God doesn't give everything we ask but always give the better things we must have #Quote by Melanie Sangalang
Better Things quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#124. Live in the very soul of expectation of better things, in the conviction that something large, grand, and beautiful will await you if your efforts are intelligent, if your mind is kept in a creative condition and you struggle upward to your goal. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Better Things quotes by Lena Dunham
#125. I didn't drink in the essence of the classroom. I didn't take legible notes or dance all night. I thought I would marry my boyfriend and grow old and sick of him. I thought I would keep my friends, and we'd make different, new memories. None of that happened. Better things happened. Then why am I so sad? #Quote by Lena Dunham
Better Things quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#126. The scenes in our life resemble pictures in a rough mosaic; they are ineffective from close up, and have to be viewed from a distance if they are to seem beautiful. That is why to attain something desired is to discover how vain it is; and why, though we live all our lives in expectation of better things, we often at the same time long regretfully for what is past. The present, on the other hand, is regarded as something quite temporary and serving as the only road to our goal. That is why most men discover when they look back on their life that they have been living the whole time ad interim, and are surprised to see that which they let go by so unregarded and unenjoyed was precisely their life, was precisely that in expectation of which they lived. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Better Things quotes by Noah Galloway
#127. I was still in and out of consciousness so much, and so emotional. But there were little things that helped. I remember at one point hearing my dad say, "He likes music. I am going to put on some music." He brought in a little red radio and left it on this Top 40 station all the time hoping to cheer me up. Top 40 stations play the same songs over and over again. At the time there was one song that stood out and struck a chord with me: Sheryl Crow's "Good is Good." I don't know what Sheryl Crow's intentions were when she wrote it, but I felt like she was singing to me directly.
I really related to this song. The words would bounce around my head even when I was asleep, about things going south and that it was up to you to make it better. Things are only as good as you make them. I felt calmer and comforted every time I heard it. #Quote by Noah Galloway
Better Things quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#128. My grandma always said, "Trouble is what God uses to prepare you for better things!" If you have trouble in your life, you are in a valley. If you are in a valley, you are being prepared for something bigger, better, greater; something you probably could not handle now. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Better Things quotes by Ray Davies
#129. Accept your life and what it brings, I know tomorrow you find better things. #Quote by Ray Davies
Better Things quotes by George R R Martin
#130. Tormund Thunderfist had better things to do than learn to make papers talk at him. #Quote by George R R Martin
Better Things quotes by J.G. Holland
#131. We live in the future. Even the happiness of the present is made up mostly of that delightful discontent which the hope of better things inspires. #Quote by J.G. Holland
Better Things quotes by Julian Baggini
#132. If we now find ourselves looking down on the cheap and convenient, it is only because we now have better things which are affordable. #Quote by Julian Baggini
Better Things quotes by David Allen
#133. You are the captain of your own ship; the more you act from that perspective, the better things will go for you. #Quote by David Allen
Better Things quotes by Francis Chan
#134. Eternal-mindedness keeps us from silly arguments. There's no time to fight. We have better things to pursue than our interests. Too much is at stake! God created us for a purpose. We can't afford to waste our lives. We can't afford to waste our marriage by merely pursuing our own happiness. #Quote by Francis Chan
Better Things quotes by Origen
#135. It can be shown that an incorporeal and reasonable being has life in itself independently of the body ... then it is beyond a doubt bodies are only of secondary importance and arise from time to time to meet the varying conditions of reasonable creatures. Those who require bodies are clothed with them, and contrariwise, when fallen souls have lifted themselves up to better things their bodies are once more annihilated. They are ever vanishing and ever reappearing. #Quote by Origen
Better Things quotes by Charles Dudley Warner
#136. Snobbery, being an aspiring failing, is sometimes the prophecy of better things. #Quote by Charles Dudley Warner
Better Things quotes by Kamal Ravikant

Better Things quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Better Things quotes by David Thorne
#143. I love Star Wars as much as the next person, don't get me wrong, I just have better things to do than learn to speak Wookiee. #Quote by David Thorne
Better Things quotes by Michael Koryta.
#144. I returned my attention to my own workout, beginning with military presses, then moving on to shoulder shrugs and lateral raises. I concentrated on steady breathing and careful form, trying to make each repetition identical to the last in motion and power, like cylinders working in an engine. Sweat beaded on my forehead, and the muscles began to ache. It wasn't a bad pain, though, but one that promised better things ahead. #Quote by Michael Koryta.
Better Things quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#145. The dead can forgive. The dead can be forgiven. The rest of us have better things to do. (Monza Murcatto) #Quote by Joe Abercrombie

Better Things quotes by Amanda Bouchet
#147. PANOTII LOOKS PUT OUT ABOUT BEING LEFT BEHIND AND dogs my steps as I stow his tack under the deep overhang on the south side of the wizard's hovel. There's plenty of grass here, water at the lake, and it's not that cold yet, despite the shift in seasons. If the rains start before we get back, the horses can take shelter under the overhang. I'm not worried about them wandering off. Not one of them has stepped outside of the large makeshift corral of God Bolt pits since we got here.

"You can't come with us," I tell him. "It'll be cold and slippery. And big monsters will want to eat you." He tosses his head, snorting. "Really big monsters. There might be Dragons. And the Hydra. And I can't vouch for the friendliness of the Ipotane toward regular horses." I blow gently into his nose. Panotii chuffs back. "You'll be safe here, and if anyone tries to steal you, Grandpa Zeus will throw down a thunderbolt. Boom! No more horse thief."

"Zeus may have better things to do than babysit our horses," Flynn says, stowing his own equine gear next to mine.

I glance northward toward the Gods' mountain home and speak loudly. "In that case, I'm announcing right now that I'll make an Olympian stink if anything happens to my horse." Flynn looks nervous and moves away from me like he's expecting a God Bolt to come thundering down.

"She's not kidding." Sunlight glints off Griffin's windblown hair. Thick black stubble darkens his jaw. He flashes me a smi #Quote by Amanda Bouchet
Better Things quotes by Elijah Parish Lovejoy
#148. Fortune has, in the main, hitherto looked unfavourably upon me since I left home, but I begin to hope for better things. Still, in all my past distresses, one thought has consoled me - I have learned to appreciate a parent's love. #Quote by Elijah Parish Lovejoy
Better Things quotes by Seth Grahame-Smith
#149. My dear, do not give way to such gloomy thoughts. Let us hope for better things. Let us flatter ourselves that Mr. Collins, who seems always eager to talk of Heaven, may be dispatched there by a horde of zombies before I am dead. #Quote by Seth Grahame-Smith
Better Things quotes by Isaac D'Israeli
#150. Quotation, like much better things, has its abuses. One may quote till one compiles. The ancient lawyers used to quote at the bar till they had stagnated their own cause. #Quote by Isaac D'Israeli
Better Things quotes by Dave Matthews
#151. Being a white South African, I enjoyed the better things that that country gave to a small percentage of its population. #Quote by Dave Matthews
Better Things quotes by Robin McKinley
#152. One doesn't generally look into mirrors when one is especially angry; one has better things to do, like pace the floor or throw things. #Quote by Robin McKinley
Better Things quotes by John Elof Boodin
#153. The pangs of pain, of failure, in this mortal lot, are the birth-throes of transition to better things. We are separated for a time by the indifference of space and our blindness which particularizes and isolates us. But in us is a longing for unity. #Quote by John Elof Boodin
Better Things quotes by Roger Ebert
#154. Just write, get better, keep writing, keep getting better. It's the only thing you can control. #Quote by Roger Ebert

Better Things quotes by Emlyn Chand
#157. Doesn't it feel great to have eight ideas you love written down and spread out on the table before you? I'll forgive you if you took a quick break from reading to do a little freestyle writing, but we really need to get back to business so you can discover your brand and move on to writing even bigger and better things. #Quote by Emlyn Chand
Better Things quotes by Grenville Kleiser

Better Things quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#160. What but education has advanced us beyond the condition of our indigenous neighbors? And what chains them to their present state of barbarism and wretchedness but a bigoted veneration for the supposed superlative wisdom of their fathers and the preposterous idea that they are to look backward for better things and not forward, longing, as it should seem, to return to the days of eating acorns and roots rather than indulge in the degeneracies of civilization? #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Better Things quotes by Ann Patchett
#161. Life, Teresa knew by now, was a series of losses. It was other things too, better things, but the losses were as solid and dependable as the earth itself. #Quote by Ann Patchett
Better Things quotes by Megyn Kelly
#162. The answer was that I had gone through a major transformation the past year and a half, and as I changed myself for the better, better things started coming to me. I was settling for more. And "more" meant more from myself. Doug #Quote by Megyn Kelly
Better Things quotes by Susan Hill
#163. Sometimes a book has its day and, although of course it does not change, the reader does, as a result of having read better things, or new tastes having come to the fore, or fashions in literature having moved on. Other novels seem to have improved, usually because we have matured as readers, our imaginations have expanded and we understand new literary approaches, sometimes because of life events which have opened us up to a new emotional awareness and understanding. #Quote by Susan Hill
Better Things quotes by Diplo
#164. Money, for me, is just to create bigger and better things. A lot of guys in the deejaying world flaunt it, but I don't see any use in that. I don't need anything. I live in hotels. Most of my clothes I get for free. I like to invest in ideas. In people. #Quote by Diplo
Better Things quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#165. What if you could pick one day of your life, and everything would stop changing, every day would be similar and comparable to that one day, you'd always have the same people with you? If you could do that, would you do it? Would you pick that day and make that choice? We crave for things to stop changing, we wish that things would never change. But if we got what we wanted, there are so many things that are better, that we would never, ever know about. Sure, things would stay the same as that one wonderful day, but then there would be nothing else out there, ever. So can you remember the very first day when everything really did begin to change? Is there a thing that can remind you? Mine is a blue rose, and that's when everything began to change because that's the day I began to believe in things I never believed in before; the day I found three blue roses. Think about your first day of change, can you remember all the new heights you've soared since that day? All the new people? All the better things and times? Would you throw all of that time away? I wouldn't. Instead, I want to finally accept all the things that I couldn't change, which led to me being right here, right now. Maybe we all carry around inside us one day we wish we could keep forever, something we wished never did change. It's time to let go of that day, and soar. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Better Things quotes by R.J. Seeley
#166. If there's one thing you learn from me, after hearing about just under one year of my life can it be that you should do whatever makes you happy. People can bring you down, people can bully you, can cheat on you but if you are doing whatever makes you happy they'll never break you. Like you saw Jacob cried but he went back fighting, no way was he going to drop out that course, it was what he wanted to do in his life and Noah was as happy as always when he told us about Stephen, because he knew although that hurt him he was about to go onto bigger and better things. Oh and never let people hold you back, ever. Mason wouldn't be going to university this September if he had and he wouldn't be doing what makes him happy (see full circle). And most of all, always have the courage to stand up and say I am what I am, never apologize for who you are or who you love and always take a chance because you never know what could happen and although some people call it cliché, it's okay to fall in love with your best friend because sometimes having your best friend as your lover is the best thing you could ask for. I promise. It's also perfectly acceptable to dress up as a women on a weekly basis and singing popular songs as long as it makes you happy doing so. #Quote by R.J. Seeley
Better Things quotes by Jhonen Vasquez

Better Things quotes by Helen Simonson
#169. At our age, surely there are better things to sustain us, to sustain a marriage, than the brief flame of passion?" ... "You are mistaken, Ernest," she said at last. "There is only the passionate spark. Without it, two people living together may be lonelier than if they lived quite alone. #Quote by Helen Simonson

Better Things quotes by Oscar Wilde
#172. All modes of government are failures. Despotism is unjust to everybody, including the despot, who was probably made for better things. Oligarchies are unjust to the many, and ochlocracies are unjust to the few. High hopes were once formed of democracy; but democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people. It has been found out. I must say that it was high time, for all authority is quite degrading. It degrades those who exercise it, and degrades those over whom it is exercised. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Better Things quotes by Alice Walsh
#173. It should never be your job to pick up the pieces of a broken man or to housebreak one. There are far better things you can do with your time. #Quote by Alice Walsh
Better Things quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#174. The scenes of our life are like pictures in rough mosaic, which have no effect at close quarters, but must be looked at from a distance in order to discern their beauty. So that to obtain something we have desired is to find out that it is worthless; we are always living in expectation of better things, while, at the same time, we often repent and long for things that belong to the past. We accept the present as something that is only temporary, and regard it only as a means to accomplish our aim. So that most people will find if they look back when their life is at an end, that they have lived their lifelong ad interim, and they will be surprised to find that something they allowed to pass by unnoticed and unenjoyed was just their life - that is to say, it was the very thing in the expectation of which they lived. And so it may be said of man in general that, befooled by hope, he dances into the arms of death. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Better Things quotes by Karen Chance
#175. My one-time roommate Claire had inherited the house from her uncle, and when she went off to bigger and better things, she'd left it in my care. And it needed a lot of it.
Most importantly, it needed a new roof. There was a worrying stain on the ceiling of my bedroom that had started out roughly the shape of Rhode Island, but now looked more like North Carolina. Another few more days of rain and it was going to be Texas. And then it wouldn't be anything at all because the battered old shingles were going to cave in on my head. #Quote by Karen Chance
Better Things quotes by Mother Teresa
#176. It is easy to be proud & harsh & selfish - so easy. But we have been created for better things. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Better Things quotes by Eric Hoffer
#177. It is not actual suffering but the taste of better things which excites people to revolt. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Better Things quotes by Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
#178. Even though I had a rough life I always had my mind on bigger and better things. #Quote by Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Better Things quotes by Nina LaCour
#179. All the things we could be doing now if she weren't busy wondering if the world holds better things for her than me. #Quote by Nina LaCour
Better Things quotes by Nancy Gibbs
#180. Summer is not obligatory. We can start an infernally hard jigsaw puzzle in June with the knowledge that, if there are enough rainy days, we may just finish it by Labor Day, but if not, there's no harm, no penalty. We may have better things to do. #Quote by Nancy Gibbs
Better Things quotes by Tim Storey
#181. The qualifications for doing something world-changing for God are simply faith and willingness. Faith means trusting God to do the impossible as you step into an arena you know little to nothing about. Willingness is also based in faith and trust in God. Because He is a loving Father and has given you eternal life and peace, you are willing to put your life on the line for Him. Faith and willingness make room for bigger and better things in your life. They open the doors for God to surprise you with something new. #Quote by Tim Storey
Better Things quotes by Claudia Gray
#182. You're strong enough to stand up to anyone. Smart enough to do anything you want. Don't sell yourself
short; don't be afraid of what your new life is going to offer. Because I know - if there's any justice in this
world, good things are going to come to you. Better things than you ever dreamed. #Quote by Claudia Gray
Better Things quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#183. My tongue is prone to lose the way,Not so my pen, for in a letterWe have not better things to say,But surely put them better. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Better Things quotes by Unknown Confederate Soldier
#184. I asked for strength that I might achieve;
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.

I asked for health that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.

I asked for riches that I might be happy;
I was given poverty that I might be wise.

I asked for power that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.

I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.

I got nothing that I asked for
but everything that I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself my unspoken prayers were answered,
I am, among all men, most richly blessed #Quote by Unknown Confederate Soldier
Better Things quotes by Ally Condie

Better Things quotes by Roy Campanella
#189. A Creed For Those Who Have Suffered

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve.
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey ...
I asked for health, that I might do great things.
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things ...
I asked for riches, that I might be happy.
I was given poverty, that I might be wise ...
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men.
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God ...
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life.
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things ...
I got nothing I asked for - but everything I had hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am, among men, most richly blessed! #Quote by Roy Campanella
Better Things quotes by Sambhav Ratnakar
#190. Before that point, I'd always been scared of lightning. There was something terrifying about sudden electricity sparks flowing in the sky, but it didn't matter after that point. Perhaps I had better things to worry about. #Quote by Sambhav Ratnakar
Better Things quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#191. Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn't have the time to sit around and talk about you. What's important to me is not others' opinions of me, but what's important to me is my opinion of myself. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.

'But what on earth were you doing messing about with ink in a white ball gown? I thought girls had better things to do before a ball, like getting their hair arranged #Quote by Daisy Goodwin

Better Things quotes by Meredith Duran
#194. Is that what you want?" he asked very quietly. "Protection?" "Oh, who knows?" This man had shown her that she knew herself far less well than she'd imagined. "I thought what I wanted was simple - to be a lady." Her laughter felt false. "It was my sister's plan, actually. We would remake ourselves. Our accents, our deportment. For gentlemen never tell a lady - a proper lady, like Miss Everleigh - to take it on the chin. It's their duty to shelter her from harshness. And that seems quite pleasant, never to be expected to endure. To be free to pursue better things, like . . . beauty and honesty and honor. So we - I - set out to become that kind of woman. A woman whom men seek to protect." What #Quote by Meredith Duran

Better Things quotes by Cynthia Heimel
#197. This is New York, a combat zone, and everyone has to have an angle or they're not allowed over the bridges or through the tunnels. Let them have their angles, it's what they live for. You've got better things to worry about, like making sure the people that actually matter don't try any funny stuff. #Quote by Cynthia Heimel
Better Things quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#198. Things will get worse before they get better. #Quote by Lauren DeStefano
Better Things quotes by David Gerrold
#199. I have a very simple philosophy of life:
Kindness. Ferocious, unrelenting, ruthless, committed, passionate, kindness.
Life is sacred everywhere. We all have better things to do than beat each other up.
Arguing for the exception is to invest it with energy, it's to negotiate the loophole. The commitment to kindness must be total. #Quote by David Gerrold
Better Things quotes by Cynthia Wicklund
#200. Hope is a bewitching emotion... leading one on with outrageous promises of
better things to come. (Adam Ashworth) #Quote by Cynthia Wicklund
Better Things quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#201. Creator of all things, true source of light and wisdom, origin of all being, graciously let a ray of your light penetrate the darkness of my understanding. Take from me the double darkness in which I have been born, an obscurity of sin and ignorance. Give me a keen understanding, a retentive memory, and the ability to grasp things correctly and fundamentally. Grant me the talent of being exact in my explanations and the ability to express myself with thoroughness and charm. Point out the beginning, direct the progress, and help in the completion. #Quote by Thomas Aquinas
Better Things quotes by Hilary Mantel
#202. Writers displace their anxiety on to the tools of the trade. It's better to say that you haven't got the right pencil than to say you can't write, or to blame your computer for losing your chapter than face up to your feeling that it's better lost. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Better Things quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#203. True religion teaches us to reverence what is under us, to recognize humility and poverty, and, despite mockery and disgrace, wretchedness, suffering, and death, as things divine. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Better Things quotes by John Rocker
#204. I'm merely a baseball player, guys, ... In the great scheme of things, my thoughts, opinions and attitudes are of little importance. #Quote by John Rocker

Better Things quotes by EXO Books
#213. Even thought you can't see it, my son, things are changing. Things ALWAYS change, given enough time and pressure. The very thought of that is scary to some, but change is absolutely nothing to be afraid of. It is a simple fact of life. #Quote by EXO Books
Better Things quotes by Omar Khayyam

Better Things quotes by Samantha Schutz
#217. I am fearful of romantic dinners,
huge crowds, dusk -
of normal things-
afraid to be loved,
the one thing I want most.
Maybe it's because I don't think I deserve it
because I am not that perfect
little girl that I was supposed to be,
well manicured and well groomed,
because I have nervous breakdowns,
and take pills,
and keep moving on. #Quote by Samantha Schutz
Better Things quotes by J.L. Powers
#218. What do you think he saw?" Damn--I regret the awed way I phrased that and the hushed voice I used. As if I think acid is a "religious" experience, a visionary thing.
"Himself," Josh says. "You always see your true self on acid. You just usually see more than you want to see. So it all seems disorted."
See what I mean? He's not your normal stoner. The guy should become a poet, a psychologist, a scientist.
We pull up near Greg's house and stare at it like it's a damn fortress.
"You don't think he needs to go to the hospital?" I ask.
"Nope," Josh says. "For a while, I thought maybe, yeah. But he's good now, he's off it, he's not hallucinating anymore."
"You're sure?"
"Yeah."
"'Cuz you can die on LSD-"
"That's such anti-drug propaganda bullshit, Dan," Josh interrupts. "Nobody's ever died from an LSD overdose. Ever. As long as you keep people from doing stupid things while they're tripping, it's all good man, man. Why do you think I babysat him?" He reaches into the backseat and punches my shoulder. "LSD isn't your dad's smack. So stop worrying."
I scrunch down in the seat. How'd he know about that? "Right. What's the plan?"
"I'd ask him if ther was a key hidden under a rock," Josh says, "but he's not gonna be much help. Watch." He pokes Greg in the leg, prods him on the shoulder, grabs his cheeks and smushes them together, the way parents do to a baby, and says, " Ootchi googi Greggy, did ums have a good trippy?

Better Things quotes by James Baldwin

Better Things quotes by Josh Bowman
#222. I wouldn't agree with some of the things that the press writes about and that's all I have to say about that. #Quote by Josh Bowman
Better Things quotes by Sylvia Plath
#223. I liked looking on at other people in crucial situations. If there was a road accident or a street fight or a baby pickled in a laboratory jar for me to look at, I'd stop and look so hard I never forgot it. I certainly learned a lot of things I never would have learned otherwise this way, and even when they surprised me or made me sick I never let on, but pretended that's the way I knew things were all the time. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Better Things quotes by Liane Moriarty
#224. Grace quite likes the fact that you can think something is one way all your life, and it turns out you're wrong, it can be something else entirely. It makes her feel free. Nothing is rigid. Things change. You can change your mind. You can change your thinking. Grace #Quote by Liane Moriarty

Better Things quotes by Tom Ford
#227. I'm living the exact life I planned on living when I was five. My life has taken some turns and changes that I didn't anticipate, and it has brought me different things. I thought material things would bring me happiness, which they didn't. But through this, I have learned what things are important and what aren't. #Quote by Tom Ford
Better Things quotes by Jennifer E. Smith
#228. Hadley grabs the laminated safety instructions from the seat pocket in front of her and frowns at the cartoon men and women who seem weirdly delighted to be bailing out of a series of cartoon planes. Beside her, Oliver stifles a laugh, and she glances up again.
"What?"
"I've just never seen anyone actually read one of those things before,"
"Well," she says, "then you're very lucky to be sitting next to me."
"Just in general?"
She grins. "Well, particularly in case of an emergency."
"Right," he says. "I feel incredibly safe. When I'm knocked unconscious by my tray table during some sort of emergency landing, I can't wait to see all five-foot-nothing of you carry me out of here. #Quote by Jennifer E. Smith

Better Things quotes by Julian Noyce
#230. Raul did was to allow the Cuban people to be able to purchase electronic goods, use tourist hotels and beaches and rent cars. He also lifted certain restrictions for farmers. Things are still hard for most Cubans though. Did you know most taxi driver's earn more than doctors. I earn considerably more than a doctor. Cuban people still have rations and ration books that allow them to purchase items at national prices. #Quote by Julian Noyce

Better Things quotes by Gerry Beckley
#232. The things I write are combinations of all of the people that have been influences to me. #Quote by Gerry Beckley
Better Things quotes by Stephen King
#233. I used to tell interviewers that I wrote every day except for Christmas, the Fourth of July, and my birthday. That was a lie. I told them that because if you agree to an interview you have to say something, and it plays better if it's something at least half-clever. Also, I didn't want to sound like a workaholic dweeb (just a workaholic, I guess). The truth is that when I'm writing, I write every day, workaholic dweeb or not. That includes Christmas, the Fourth, and my birthday (at my age you try to ignore your goddam birthday anyway). And when I'm not working, I'm not working at all, although during those periods of full stop I usually feel at loose ends with myself and have trouble sleeping. For me, not working is the real work. #Quote by Stephen King
Better Things quotes by Emiliano Zapata
#234. It is better to die fighting than to die on your knees. #Quote by Emiliano Zapata
Better Things quotes by Ben Hewitt
#235. Of all the things I want for them, connection to this place and a sense of knowing how they fit into this world usurps all others. I want this for them more than happiness, because I think mere happiness is a shallow elucidation of the human experience, and by itself is not a particularly sturdy emotional foundation upon which to build a fulfilling life. I want this for them more than success, at least insofar as our culture has come to define success as being a product of money and power and recognition. I want this for them more than physical vitality, because I believe that good health--and not just health of body, but also of emotion and spirit--is only possibly when one feels connected to and secure in their place. #Quote by Ben Hewitt
Better Things quotes by Josephine Humphreys
#236. If she were their mother she'd teach them these things are nothing, the clothes and toys and furniture. These things fool people into thinking they must stay where the things are. Leave it all, she'd teach them, even your hopes, and all the dreams of safe, calm places. Go with what is most terrifying, the dizzying empty night and the lonely stars until night slows and you see the whole design. Always choose love over safety if you can tell the difference ... #Quote by Josephine Humphreys
Better Things quotes by Nazim Ambalath
#237. Implement an outstanding idea to yield you back a priceless life. #Quote by Nazim Ambalath
Better Things quotes by Tom McCall
#238. We who are privileged to be in these chambers today can view the challenges we face as opportunities, not as reasons for despair. We can do this only if we blend our independent spirits in terms of reverence for the life and respect for nature. Each of you might suggest different words, but our goal certainly is the same: a better Oregon. #Quote by Tom McCall
Better Things quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#239. Absence of that knowledge has rendered us a nation of wary label-readers, oddly uneasy in our obligate relationship with the things we eat ... Our words for unhealthy contamination
"soiled" or "dirty"
suggest that if we really knew the number-one ingredient of a garden, we'd all head straight into therapy. I used to take my children's friends out to the garden to warm them up to the idea of eating vegetables, but this strategy sometimes backfired: they'd back away slowly saying, "Oh man, those things touched dirt!" Adults do the same by pretending it all comes from the clean, well-lighted grocery store. We're like petulant teenagers rejecting our mother. We know we came out of her, but ee-ew. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Better Things quotes by Delmore Schwartz
#240. Literature doesn't matter! The only thing that matters is money and getting your teeth fixed! #Quote by Delmore Schwartz
Better Things quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#241. Knowledge of physical laws can, in some cases, give you the confidence to confront surly people. A few years ago I was having a hot-cocoa nightcap at a dessert shop in Pasadena, California. I had ordered it with whipped cream, of course. When it arrived at the table, I saw no trace of the stuff. After I told the waiter that my cocoa was plain, he asserted I couldn't see the whipped cream because it sank to the bottom. Since whipped cream has a very low density and floats on all liquids that humans consume, I offered the waiter two possible explanations: either somebody forgot to add the whipped cream to my hot cocoa or the universal laws of physics were different in his restaurant. Unconvinced, he brought over a dollop of whipped cream to test for himself. After bobbing once or twice in my cup, the whipped cream sat up straight and afloat. What better proof do you need of the universality of physical laws? #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Better Things quotes by C.J. Tudor
#242. We assume things because it's easier, lazier. It stops us thinking too hard…usually about stuff that makes us feel uncomfortable. But not thinking can lead to misunderstandings and in some cases, tragedies. #Quote by C.J. Tudor
