Bother quotes by Jerry Stahl
#1. Death Anyway meant "What the hell, even Hemingway sucked on a shotgun ... " Death Anyway, when you came down to it, meant why in God's name would you want to be Pre-Law, Pre-Med, or Pre-Anything, when any microbe could see that just being alive was no more than Pre-Death.( ... ) That was the world, to me. If you showed up - if you did what they told you to do - you'd still end up with your skull in bloody gauze or your balls hanging from a branch. So why bother? Nothing mattered. Death anyway ... #Quote by Jerry Stahl
Bother quotes by Elizabeth Fair
#2. Clichés really do describe emotional experiences, you know. The mere fact that hundreds of people use them proves it. People who are truly suffering don't bother about looking for elegant new ways of expressing their feelings. #Quote by Elizabeth Fair
Bother quotes by Ralphie Parker
#3. Don't bother me ... I'm thinking. #Quote by Ralphie Parker
Bother quotes by David Foster Wallace
#4. If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don't bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don't bullshit yourself that you're not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard's vote. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Bother quotes by Diplo
#5. All over the world kids and women [are] getting killed right now over beliefs, this is silly to get angry over. If it bothers you just don't attend I'm down for anything positive but this doesn't affect our parties too much. I'm not the promoter, I actually had nothing to do with the rules being implemented, but I do agree with my team. And cause of who I am, I'm the de facto speaker. I have thick skin so u guys that consider yourself PLUR can attack me all you want it doesn't bother me. I'm just here for the music. #Quote by Diplo
Bother quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#6. Prayer was never meant to be magic,' Mother said.
'Then why bother with it?' Suzy scowled.
'Because it's an act of love,' Mother said. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Bother quotes by Susan Ee
#7. Why bother attacking their strengths when you can go straight for their weaknesses? #Quote by Susan Ee
Bother quotes by Nicole Miller
#8. People have asked me, what about your tattoos when you're ninety? Why would it bother me then? I would still want to get tattooed even when I'm a grandmother. #Quote by Nicole Miller
Bother quotes by Chuck Eddy
#9. If I am thinking the same as everyone why bother pushing to get it published? #Quote by Chuck Eddy
Bother quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#10. All sorrows in life stem from the lack of cake. If you had your own cake, you wouldn't bother trying to take away the other person's cake! And, if the cake you had were beautiful enough, you wouldn't bother trying to melt the icing on that other person's cake! And if you always had a very beautiful cake that was always beautiful enough, then you would have a smile on your face all the time and wouldn't even care if other people were enjoying their own cakes! Because you'd be enjoying yours, too! Therefore, I hereby decree that all sorrows can be fixed by many beautiful cakes! Bake a cake! #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Bother quotes by America Ferrera
#11. I think Hispanic women are beautiful with their curves. I'm not sure who feels that way in Hollywood. I was never told to lose 50 pounds. If they think that they just don't bother with you. You just don't get the role and you never know why. That's still better than physically harming yourself and becoming unhealthy just to star in a movie. #Quote by America Ferrera
Bother quotes by Doc Sanborn
#12. It seems to be a universal generality that while the old want to reminisce, the young are too busy living to bother. #Quote by Doc Sanborn
Bother quotes by Warren Buffett
#13. A market downturn, doesn't bother us. For us and our long term investors, it is an opportunity to increase our ownership of great companies with great management at good prices. Only for short term investors and market timers is a correction not an opportunity. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Bother quotes by Ann Oakley
#14. There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn't bother to change while there are women like that around. #Quote by Ann Oakley
Bother quotes by Woody Allen
#15. Whosoever shall not fall by the sword or by famine, shall fall by pestilence so why bother shaving? #Quote by Woody Allen
Bother quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#16. ...while epic fantasy is based on the fairy tale of the just war, that's not one you'll find in Grimm or Disney, and most will never recognize the shape of it. I think the fantasy genre pitches its tent in the medieval campground for the very reason that we even bother to write stories about things that never happened in the first place: because it says something subtle and true about our own world, something it is difficult to say straight out, with a straight face. Something you need tools to say, you need cheat codes for the human brain--a candy princess or a sugar-coated unicorn to wash down the sour taste of how bad things can really get.

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

The Classical internal monologue goes like this: do anything, anything, only don't be forgotten. Yes, this one sacrificed his daughter on a slab at Aulis, that one married his mother and tore out his eyes, and oh that guy ate his kids in a pie. But you remember their names, don't you? So it's all good in the end. Give a Greek soul a choice between a short life full of glory and a name echoing down the halls of time and a long, gentle life full of children and a quiet sort of virtue, and he'll alwa #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Bother quotes by Julia Quinn
#17. What are you smiling about?" Benedict demanded.
She didn't bother to glance up as she replied, "I'm plotting your demise."
He grinned-not that she was looking at him, but it was one of those smiles she could hear in the way he breathed.
She hated that she as that sensitive to his every nuance. Especially since she had a sneaking suspicion that he was the same way about her.
"At least it sounds entertaining,"he said.
"What does?" she asked, finally moving her eyes from the lower hem of the curtain, which she'd been staring at for what seemed like hours.
"My demise," he said, his smile crooked and amused. "If you're going to kill me, you might as well enjoy yourself while you're at it, because Lord knows, I won't."
Her jaw dropped a good inch. "You're mad," she said. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Bother quotes by Kevin Brownlow
#18. Friends told me not to bother with the silents - they're jerky, poorly photographed and ludicrously badly acted. But I was immediately struck by the freshness and vitality of these films. #Quote by Kevin Brownlow
Bother quotes by Retief Goosen
#19. I hang around under the radar. Nobody is bothering me for interviews. #Quote by Retief Goosen
Bother quotes by Riley Redgate
#20. I don't want to read your walls ... I don't want to read your hang-ups. I don't want to read skeletal concepts of people who operate without the influence of a limbic system. You are not an archaeologist excavating and presenting old bones. Your work is the connective tissue. Give me some DNA, or don't bother. #Quote by Riley Redgate
Bother quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#21. Why bother? Maybe the world's not worth saving. She knew he meant it, too. Those lifeless eyes spoke volumes. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Bother quotes by Jon Ronson
#22. The common assumption is that public punishments died out in the new great metropolises because they'd been judged useless. Everyone was too busy being industrious to bother to trail some transgressor through the city crowds like some volunteer scarlet letter. But according to the documents I found, that wasn't it at all. They didn't fizzle out because they were ineffective. They were stopped because they were far too brutal. #Quote by Jon Ronson
Bother quotes by Rene Daumal
#23. You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. #Quote by Rene Daumal
Bother quotes by Bill Bowerman
#24. I still bother with runners I call hamburgers. They're never going to run any record times. But they can fulfill their own potential. #Quote by Bill Bowerman
Bother quotes by Patton Oswalt
#25. The great ones show you what you can get away with. The shitty ones remind you what never to bother with. #Quote by Patton Oswalt
Bother quotes by Kresley Cole
#26. With her back to him, she maneuvered the towel, endeavoring to dress without revealing anything.
"Though I could watch this all night, you should no' bother with it. I've seen every inch of you by now."
She glanced over her shoulder, not knowing if she was pleased or disappointed that he'd slung on his jeans. "How's that?"
"I'm tall enough that when I was behind you, I could see straight over you. And my eyesight's strong enough to easily see through the water."
She wasn't modest, and this hiding her body like a blushing virgin wasn't her front anyway. "In that case . . ." she said, dropping the towel.
He hissed in a breath. As she set about dressing as usual, he grated, "Not a bashful one, then?"
Bashful? She and her friends made Girls Gone Wild look like a quilting circle. "Just being charitable to aging werewolves. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Bother quotes by Simon Munnery
#27. It is the vanity of women to spend hours in front of the mirror. It is the vanity of men not to bother. #Quote by Simon Munnery
Bother quotes by Kresley Cole
#28. What are you trying to prove?" Lucia demanded.
Between strikes, he bellowed, "That you should no' have left me!"
"You were going to do it to me
don't bother denying it!" When he didn't, she said, "Then why are you different?" Another volley of arrows. "What gives you the right to risk yourself?"
He snapped, "Because you could move on if something happened to me. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Bother quotes by Robert Dessaix
#29. How do you irradiate the humbly trivial - the sneezes and waiting in bus-queues - with the lofty, and at the same time cherish above all in the lofty those things that nourish you here, today, in all your ordinariness? I cannot understand, in other words, what sort of God would bother to count every hair on my head. #Quote by Robert Dessaix
Bother quotes by Seneca The Younger
#30. The things that are essential are acquired with little bother; it is the luxuries that call for toil and effort. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Bother quotes by Joe Jonas
#31. I love the tour bunks. I can sleep like a baby in those bunks. It really doesn't bother me at all. A lot of people have a difficult time - they're like, 'It's like a coffin.' I get in there and I just pass out. You can't even wake me up. #Quote by Joe Jonas
Bother quotes by Pio Of Pietrelcina
#32. He who does not meditate acts as one who never looks into the mirror and so does not bother to put himself in order, since he can be dirty without knowing it. The person who meditates and turns his thoughts to God who is the mirror of the soul, seeks to know his defects and tries to correct them, moderates himself in his impulses and puts his conscience in order. #Quote by Pio Of Pietrelcina
Bother quotes by Jarod Kintz
#33. Do I look like someone you know? Well you don't know me, so why don't you go bother my clone? And if you do see my clone, tell him I should have made an omelet out of him when I had the chance. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Bother quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#34. Unamused, Ushara went to pull the kettle from the stove and pour the tea. "That's beside the point. And you forget that we're Andarion. We don't like scars on our males. They're hideous and gross." As she turned back, she caught the hurt and stricken expression on Jullien's face. Too late, she remembered how many scars lined his body. "Jules…"

Completely somber, he moved away from her. "I should be going. I have an early shift."

"Jullien?" But it was too late. He was out of her home before she could apologize.

"Mum? What happened?"

Furious at herself for being so thoughtless, she cupped her son's chin and sighed. "I accidentally hurt his feelings. I forgot that Jullien has a lot of scars that bother him."

"How could you forget?"

"'Cause I don't see them, Vas. They don't matter to me." She brushed the hair back to look at his brow and was about to take him to the doctor to have it stitched when she realized that Jullien had already done it. "He stitched you?"

Vas nodded. "He did it so fast, I barely felt it."

She should have known that Jullien wouldn't have left with it unfinished. Sighing, she kissed Vas's bandage and hated that she'd hurt Jullien's feelings. "Come on, honey. Let's get you cleaned up and ready for bed. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Bother quotes by Ally Carter
#35. Gabrielle was insulted and didn't even bother to hide it. 'Oh, and I suppose you think your dad was alone when he free-climbed the Kyoto Banking Tower on a windy day last September. #Quote by Ally Carter
Bother quotes by Rollo May
#36. Anxiety, the other characteristic of modern man, is even more basic than emptiness and loneliness. For being "hollow" and lonely would not bother us except that it makes us prey to that peculiar psychological pain and turmoil called anxiety. #Quote by Rollo May
Bother quotes by Marlene Dietrich
#37. I had no desire to be an film actress, to always play somebody else, to be always beautiful with somebody constantly straightening out your every eyelash. It was always a big bother to me. #Quote by Marlene Dietrich
Bother quotes by Ernest Becker
#38. Therefore in normal times we move about actually without ever believing in our own death, as if we fully believed in our own corporeal immortality. We are intent on mastering death ... . A man will say, of course, that he knows he will die some day,
but he does not really care. He is having a good time with living, and he does not think about death and does not care to bother about it, but this is a purely intellectual, verbal admission. The affect of fear is repressed. #Quote by Ernest Becker
Bother quotes by Ednah Walters
#39. Blue eyes was studying the damaged mailbox like an insurance adjuster. Why couldn't he go bother someone else? Or at least put on a shirt? #Quote by Ednah Walters
Bother quotes by Andy Weir
#40. The only way to get all twenty-eight on the roof was to make stacks so high they'd fall off the first time I turned. If I lashed them together, they'd fall off as a unit. If I found a way to attach them perfectly to the rover, the rover would tip. I didn't even bother to test. It was obvious by looking, and I didn't want to break anything. #Quote by Andy Weir
Bother quotes by Arinn Dembo
#41. If you're going to be a narcissistic schmuck, kid, don't bother studying Faulkner. Go straight to Brett Easton Ellis. He's the role model you need. #Quote by Arinn Dembo
Bother quotes by Kij Johnson
#42. The constant talking didn't bother her, for cats use their voices to say 'here I am, where are you?' and this seemed to be the primary intention of most human conversation. #Quote by Kij Johnson
Bother quotes by Claire Contreras
#43. Would it bother you if somebody asked me out on a date?" His laughter stopped instantly. "Why? Who asked you out? That asshole realtor?" That made me laugh. "No. You know there are more men in the world, right?" "Who asked you out? #Quote by Claire Contreras
Bother quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#44. What you pretend to be is so complicated that I don't even bother to try to understand it. #Quote by Miguel Ruiz
Bother quotes by Joe McNally
#45. Jay Maisel always says to bring your camera, 'cause it's tough to take a picture without it. Pursuant to the above aforementioned piece of the rule book, subset three, clause A, paragraph four would be…use the camera.
Put it to your eye. You never know. There are lots of reasons, some of them even good, to just leave it on your shoulder or in your bag. Wrong lens. Wrong light. Aaahhh, it's not that great, what am I gonna do with it anyway? I'll have to put my coffee down. I'll just delete it later, why bother? Lots of reasons not to take the dive into the eyepiece and once again try to sort out the world into an effective rectangle.
It's almost always worth it to take a look. #Quote by Joe McNally
Bother quotes by Paul Theroux
#46. And then there are the laziest and most presumptuous of people, those who can read but who don't bother, who live in the smuggest ignorance and seem to me dangerous. #Quote by Paul Theroux
Bother quotes by Ben Sherwood
#47. Trust your heart if the sea catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backwards.
-I feel like, Charlie the main character can only communicate his bother who past away through nature and that he needs to move on and find love evn if his brother is not there physically. #Quote by Ben Sherwood
Bother quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#48. So Sofie and I have come to Pizzeria da Michele, and these pies we have just ordered
one for each of us
are making us lose our minds. I love my pizza so much, in fact, that I have come to believe in my delerium that my pizza might actually love me, in return. I am having a relationship with this pizza, almost an affair. Meanwhile, Sofie is practically in tears over hers, she's having a metaphysical crisis about it, she's begging me, Why do they even bother trying to make pizza in Stockholm? Why do we even bother eating food at all in Stockholm? #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Bother quotes by Emma Thompson
#49. The insanity of consumption bothers me. Talk about the opiate of the masses. It ain't religion anymore. It's stuff. #Quote by Emma Thompson
Bother quotes by Mystery
#50. Many men understand and appreciate that seduction first makes women feel uncomfortable. What these men do instead is focus on comfort first.
What these men don't realize is that women of beauty get bombarded by these nice guys every day, and it can grow quite tiresome. While not as offensive as these seducer, the nice guy is no less a bother. There are simply too many nice guys approaching them in a day to indulge in the same old lengthy dialogue time after time. Without attraction first, simply saying, "Hi, I'm Joe. What's your name?" will smack of every nice guy before you. Why would a woman who isn't attracted to you care what your name is or bother to even remember it? Why would she divulge personal information just because you asked? #Quote by Mystery
Bother quotes by Michael Lewis
#51. In the two decades after I left, I waited for the end of Wall Street as I had known it. The outrageous bonuses, the endless parade of rogue traders, the scandal that sank Drexel Burnham, the scandal that destroyed John Gutfreund and finished off Salomon Brothers, the crisis following the collapse of my old boss John Meriwether's Long-Term Capital Management, the Internet bubble: Over and over again, the financial system was, in some narrow way, discredited. Yet the big Wall Street banks at the center of it just kept on growing, along with the sums of money that they doled out to twenty-six-year-olds to perform tasks of no obvious social utility. The rebellion by American youth against the money culture never happened. Why bother to overturn your parents' world when you can buy it and sell off the pieces? #Quote by Michael Lewis
Bother quotes by Scott Borchetta
#52. I tell my assistant "I'm busy! unless it's Jesus or Taylor (Swift) don't bother me" #Quote by Scott Borchetta
Bother quotes by C.S. Lewis
#53. The Life-Force is a sort of tame God. You can switch it on when you want, but it will not bother you. All the thrills of religion and none of the cost. Is the Life-Force the greatest achievement of wishful thinking the world has yet seen? #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Bother quotes by Sam Crescent
#54. She wasn't pretty, and she didn't even bother to try to fit in. She didn't care to. #Quote by Sam Crescent
Bother quotes by Jay Chiat
#55. If you can't be bothered to work on Saturday, don't bother to come in on Sunday. #Quote by Jay Chiat
Bother quotes by Lexi Blake
#56. Alex, I remember when Eve was the touchiest, feeliest sub I'd ever met." "He raped her. He abused her. She can't go back," Alex said. "We can't go back." "Then Evans wins. He did his job, and you should just hang it the fuck up. Why bother hunting the man down? You're already dead. You just forgot to tell us to bury the fucking body, man. #Quote by Lexi Blake
Bother quotes by Colleen Houck
#57. What's wrong?"
Before I could stop myself, I mumbled, "I'm used to resting my head on a warm tiger-fur pillow is what's wrong."
He grunted, "Hmm, let me see what I can do."
Panicky, I squeaked out, "No, really. I'm okay. Don't bother."
He ignored my protests, scooped up my mummy-wrapped self, and set me down again on his side of the fire. He turned me on my side so I faced the fire, lay down behind me, and slid an arm under my neck to cradle my head.
"Is that more comfortable for you?"
"Uh, yes and no. My head can definitely rest better in this position. Unfortunately, the rest of me is feeling the complete opposite of relaxed."
"What do you mean? Why can't you relax?"
"Because you're too close for me to relax."
Bemused, he said, "Me being too close never bothered you when I was a tiger."
"The tiger you and the man you are two completely different things."
He put his arm around my waist and tugged me closer so we were spooned together. He sounded irritated and disappointed when he muttered, "It doesn't feel different to me. Just close your eyes and imagine I'm still a tiger."
"It doesn't exactly work like that." I lay stiffly in his arms, nervous, especially when he began nuzzling the back of my neck.
He said softly, "I like the smell of your hair." His chest rumbled against my back, sending massaging vibrations through my body as he purred.
"Ren, can you not do that right now?"
He lifted his head. "Yo #Quote by Colleen Houck
Bother quotes by Cristin Terrill
#58. You say you'll be fine, and I swear I'm shoving you out of this car!" I snap. I hate it when James gets like this, so perversely determined not to be a bother to anyone, like last year when he broke his wrist and insisted on scrawling his equations in an unreadable script with his bad hand rather than letting me write for him. He doesn't see how much I want to be bothered by him, how that means I'm actually important to him. #Quote by Cristin Terrill
Bother quotes by Zicheng Hong
#59. Even if you can't get rid of the heat, as long as you can get rid of bother with the heat, your body is always on a cool terrace. Even if you can't get rid of poverty, as long as you can get rid of the sadness of poverty, your mind always lives in a comfortable abode. #Quote by Zicheng Hong
Bother quotes by Brad Blanton
#60. The reason for forgiving your enemies is not for their benefit but for your own benefit. Holding grudges against other people doesn't hurt them; doesn't even bother them much - in fact, even pleases them if they are still mad at you. It is not in your enlightened self-interest to hold grudges, regardless of whether it bothers the person you hate or not. #Quote by Brad Blanton
Bother quotes by Lisa Genova
#61. I can't fathom the day when I'll be able to figure out how to independently maneuver my way into my bra, like I used to, every day since I was thirteen. The left arm through the left loop, the left boob into the left cup. Never mind the clasp in the back. My poor injured brain gets all twisted up like some circus contortionist even trying to imagine how this procedure would work. I'm supposed to at least try every step of getting dressed on my own, but when it comes to the bra, I no longer bother. My mother just does it for me, and we don't tell the therapists.She holds up one of my white Victoria's Secret Miracle Bras. I close my eyes, shutting out the humiliating image of my mother manhandling my boobs. But even with my eyes closed, I can feel her cold fingers against my bare skin, and as I can't help but picture what she's doing, humiliation saunters right in, takes a seat, and puts its feet up. Like it does every day now. #Quote by Lisa Genova
Bother quotes by Heather Cocks
#62. You look amazing."
"I look like a lunatic."
"A gorgeous lunatic."
"Don't bother me with your hormones. I'm reading. #Quote by Heather Cocks
Bother quotes by Yoss
#63. Super Extra Grande. If it's only medium sized, don't even bother. #Quote by Yoss
Bother quotes by Mike Carey
#64. It's a measure of how far I've come that I didn't bother to say, "This is impossible."
I'd gotten the hang of it now.
-Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere (comics adaptation by Mike Carey and Glenn Fabry) #Quote by Mike Carey
Bother quotes by Woody Hayes
#65. There's nothing in this world that comes easy. There are a lot of people who aren't going to bother to win. We learn in football to get up and go once more. #Quote by Woody Hayes
Bother quotes by John Bingham
#66. She still said nothing and I purposely did not look at her because I did not wish either to press her or to embarrass her. I was in love with her, and my heart went out to her as she tried to fathom her own feelings. I felt like saying: Don't bother to explain, darling. I know it all.
Instead, the calculating side of my mind was at work: the side that plotted carefully, planned to get what it wanted and nearly always succeeded. #Quote by John Bingham
Bother quotes by Holly Bourne
#67. That's how you give away your power, by caring what other people think. As long as nobody thought I was a nasty person, I didn't worry about the rest. I mean, why bother? You couldn't control it anyway. #Quote by Holly Bourne
Bother quotes by Frank Herbert
#68. Paradox is a pointer telling you to look beyond it. If paradoxes bother you, that betrays your deep desire for absolutes. The relativist treats a paradox merely as interesting, perhaps amusing or even, dreadful thought, educational. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Bother quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#69. Harriet grinned at Betty Armstrong, hearing the familiar academic wrangle begin. Before ten minutes had passed, somebody had introduced the word "values." An hour later they were still at it. Finally the Bursar was heard to quote: "God made the integers; all else is the work of man." "Oh, bother!" cried the Dean. "Do let's keep mathematics out of it. And physics. I cannot cope with them. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Bother quotes by Rachel DeWoskin
#70. In 2002, after the huge success of Who Moved my Cheese? a management manual that sold 1.6million copies in China, there was a rush of books inspired by it.

Titles included Whose Cheese Should I Move?; Can I Move Your Cheese?; Who Dares to Move my Cheese?; I Don't Bother to Move Your Cheese; Agitating, Alluring Cheese; No One Can Move My Cheese! The New Allegory of Cheese; Make the Cheese by Yourself!; A Piece of Cheese: Reading World Famous Fairy Tales; Management Advice 52 from the Cheese; and No More Cheese!

Finally, there was my personal favorite: Chinese People Eat Cheese? - Who Took My Meat Bun? #Quote by Rachel DeWoskin
Bother quotes by Marian Wright Edelman
#71. The civil-rights movement was completely impossible to achieve. But look at what ordinary people were able to do because they were willing to sacrifice their lives to stay with it. They didn't expect a political process to respond to them. They made the political process respond to them. To say "It's so bad I won't bother" is to give up on your children and give up on your future. #Quote by Marian Wright Edelman
Bother quotes by Philip Larkin
#72. I am not sure, once a poet has found out what has been written already, and how it was written - once, in short, he has learnt his trade - that he should bother with literature at all. Poetry is not like surgery, a technique that can be copied. Every operation the poet performs is unique, and need never be done again. #Quote by Philip Larkin
Bother quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#73. Jesus' teaching consistently attracted the irreligious while offending the Bible-believing, religious people of his day. However, in the main, our churches today do not have this effect. The kind of outsiders Jesus attracted do not bother coming to our churches, even our most avant-garde ones. We tend to draw buttoned-down, moralistic people. The licentious and liberated or the broken and marginal avoid church. That can only mean one thing. If the preaching of our ministers and the practice of our parishioners do not have the same effect on people that Jesus had, then we must not be declaring the same message that Jesus did.2 #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Bother quotes by Robert Smith
#74. I'm not going to worry about the Cure slipping down into the second division; it doesn't bother me because I never expected to be in the first division anyway. #Quote by Robert Smith
Bother quotes by M. Ganesh Sai
#75. Never waste time for someone who doesn't bother to spend time with you, but with someone who will say, time is wasted if I'm not with you. #Quote by M. Ganesh Sai
Bother quotes by Cherise Sinclair
#76. Don't bother to argue. We're both going to have nightmares. You will be in my bed and in my arms when that happens. #Quote by Cherise Sinclair
Bother quotes by Matt Groening
#77. Where do babies come from? Don't bother asking adults. They lie like pigs. However, diligent independent research and hours of playground consultation have yielded fruitful, if tentative, results. There are several theories. Near as we can figure out, it has something to do with acting ridiculous in the dark. We believe it is similar to dogs when they act peculiar and ride each other. This is called "making love". Careful study of popular song lyrics, advertising catch-lines, TV sitcoms, movies, and T-Shirt inscriptions offers us significant clues as to its nature. Apparently it makes grown-ups insipid and insane. Some graffiti was once observed that said "sex is good". All available evidence, however, points to the contrary. #Quote by Matt Groening
Bother quotes by G.A. Aiken
#78. Adjusting her frames, Dagmar said, "It's time for you to stop talking."
"I don't want to."
"But you will stop talking."
"We're on my territory now, Beast. You can't strut around here and pretend you rule all - "
"Quiet."
"But - "
She raised her right forefinger.
"She - "
Dagmar raised that damn forefinger higher.
"It's just - "
Now she brandished both forefingers. "Stop."
He gave Dagmar his best pout, which she completely ignored, turning her back on him to again face Annwyl. "Think there might be some place private we can talk, my lady?"
Gwenvael's mouth dropped open. "Did you just dismiss - "
Dagmar held up that damn forefinger again but didn't even bother to look at him when she did.
Annwyl's grin was wide and bright. A smile Gwenvael hadn't seen from her in far too long. "Right this way, Lady Dagmar."
"Thank you." Dagmar brusquely snapped her fingers at Gwenvael. "And don't forget to bring my bags up once I get a room, Defiler."
Annwyl fairly glowed as she followed Dagmar from the room, her smile growing by the second. Gwenvael faced his sister. "It's Ruiner, which is a vast difference.So get it right!" he yelled at the empty doorway. #Quote by G.A. Aiken
Bother quotes by John Galsworthy
#79. How to save the old that's worth saving, whether in landscape, houses, manners, institutions, or human types, is one of our greatest problems, and the one that we bother least about. #Quote by John Galsworthy
Bother quotes by Shane Crash
#80. I've learned that most people never bother to construct time machines. They're perfectly content to stumble through life, seemingly unthinking. They're unaware of their constant unending effort to suppress the despair they feel every day, the despair they feel at the impossibility of continuing to exist without knowing why they exist at all. #Quote by Shane Crash
Bother quotes by Sade Adu
#81. I always said that if I could just find a guy who could chop wood and had a nice smile, it wouldn't bother me if he was a thug or an aristocrat, as long as he was a good guy. And I've ended up with an educated thug. #Quote by Sade Adu
Bother quotes by John Cleese
#82. When you get to my age, and I'm 66 now, you realize that the world is a madhouse and that most people are operating in fantasy anyway. So once you realise that, it doesn't bother you much. #Quote by John Cleese
Bother quotes by Yannick Murphy
#83. THOUGHTS ON RIDE HOME: If my levels get too high, if they talk too much, then put me out of my misery and burn me on a pyre, that's how I want to go. Don't bother with a backhoe to try and dig the hole. Take down the trees to build the pyre off our land. Let the Newfoundlands have my bones. Let them walk the property drooling with my femur between their massive jaws. I am renewable energy. #Quote by Yannick Murphy
Bother quotes by Kristopher Jansma
#84. If the gods actually know our fates and still try to meddle and wage their wars in us, then there must be some purpose in our choosing one of the many paths to that end. Man must have free will, or else why would the gods themselves bother? #Quote by Kristopher Jansma

Bother quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#86. There's no difference between a pessimist who says, "Oh, it's hopeless, so don't bother doing anything," and an optimist who says, "Don't bother doing anything, it's going to turn out fine anyway." Either way, nothing happens. - YVON CHOUINARD,7 founder of Patagonia #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Bother quotes by Mark Carwardine
#87. In every remote corner of the world there are people like Carl Jones and Don Merton who have devoted their lives to saving threatened species. Very often, their determination is all that stands between an endangered species and extinction.
But why do they bother? Does it really matter if the Yangtze river dolphin, or the kakapo, or the northern white rhino, or any other species live on only in scientists' notebooks?
Well, yes, it does. Every animal and plant is an integral part of its environment: even Komodo dragons have a major role to play in maintaining the ecological stability of their delicate island homes. If they disappear, so could many other species. And conservation is very much in tune with our survival. Animals and plants provide us with life-saving drugs and food, they pollinate crops and provide important ingredients or many industrial processes. Ironically, it is often not the big and beautiful creatures, but the ugly and less dramatic ones, that we need most.
Even so, the loss of a few species may seem irrelevant compared to major environmental problems such as global warming or the destruction of the ozone layer. But while nature has considerable resilience, there is a limit to how far that resilience can be stretched. No one knows how close to the limit we are getting. The darker it gets, the faster we're driving.
There is one last reason for caring, and I believe that no other is necessary. It is certainly the reason why so many people #Quote by Mark Carwardine
Bother quotes by Shirley Rousseau Murphy
#88. If it occurred to Thursey that there was really no relationship between marrying your own true love and having a fortune showered upon you, she didn't bother about that. In a story you might as well have both, it was make-believe anyway.
But if I had to choose, she thought. If I had to choose ... she stared at her ragged dress hanging from its hook, and her ragged mended sandals on the shelf, then put the books away. How would I ever have such a choice, except in a made-up story? #Quote by Shirley Rousseau Murphy
Bother quotes by Byron Katie
#89. I've heard people say that they cling to their painful thoughts
because they're afraid that without them they wouldn't be activists for peace.
"If I feel peaceful," they say, "why would I bother taking action at all?"
My answer is "Because that's what love does."
To think that we need sadness or outrage
to motivate us to do what's right is insane.
As if the clearer and happier you get, the less kind you become.
As if when someone finds freedom, she just sits around all day
with drool running down her chin.
My experience is the opposite.
Love is action. #Quote by Byron Katie

Bother quotes by Eric Nuzum
#91. Eventually I had gotten it together enough to call her. I did so partly to let her know where I was and partly to almost brag about where I was. Whenever I'd get morose, sulky, or stuck somewhere between crabby and suicidal, she was quick to say something disarming or indirectly tell me things weren't that bad. Laura wasn't exactly dismissive of my feelings, but I often left our conversations feeling like she didn't quite get how harsh things felt for me - or at least that she wasn't willing to acknowledge it. This frustrated and upset me. I spent so much time trying to hide the depths of my feelings and the clusterfuckedness of my life from everyone, except her. The one person I was honest with was often telling me that I was being too dramatic, or overdramatic, or overthinking things, or would I just please change the subject. It wasn't like she didn't believe me - it was more like she questioned why I let things bother me so much. In a small way, ending up in the mental ward was a strange kind of validation for me. Being in Timken Mercy proved that when I was insisting that things were terrible, and she kept insisting that they weren't, they were, in fact, kind of terrible. #Quote by Eric Nuzum
Bother quotes by Paul Cornell
#92. Big construction companies, making millions on underground developments such as this, had initially gone to the bother of bringing in cranes to lift mechanical diggers, once their work was done, out of their excavations. Then they'd realized that the cost-benefit analysis actually tipped in the direction of just finding somewhere to hide the digger and leaving it entombed in a wall, the company sometimes going just a little bit beyond the planning permission they'd been given for the few days it took to do so. Ballard had slipped someone at City Hall some cash to get a look at the plans and realized that, yes, the only place the digger could have been entombed was right up against the bank.

Bother quotes by Dan Wells
#94. And all I can think about is that it's not over and I'm tired and I'm ready to go but I'm still here. And I have to do it again and again and again." He leaned back in his chair.
"You think about that before you tell me I've got it easy."
I stayed silent a while before speaking. "So why don't you end it?"
"Suicide?"
"If your life is such a hell," I asked, "why bother? Why go through it again and again and all those times?"
"Because of..." He stopped and looked at the ceiling. After a moment he shrugged.
"Because of children," he said, "because of smiles and sunshine and ice cream."
"You've got to be kidding."
"You don't like ice cream?" Elijah shook his head, "It's the best. Imagine how excited I was when someone finally invented it. "
"Sunshine and smiles don't make all that other stuff go away." I said, "This isn't a fairy land."
"No," he said. "It's the real world. And the real world is the most amazing thing any of us will ever experience. Have you ever climbed a mountain? Walked through a garden? Played with a child? This isn't exactly a revelation John. People have been praising the simple pleasures since even before I was born, and that's a very long time."
"You don't do any of those things."
"But I have my memories," Said Elijah. "And I have even simpler things. Music. Food. Everybody likes bacon."
"I'm a vegetarian."

#99. If this satanic sprinkling of redundant apostrophes causes no little gasp of horror or quickening of the pulse, you should probably put down this book.

Bother quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#102. In the earliest years, when you could still drive a Volvo 240 without feeling self-conscious, the collective task in Ramsey Hill was to relearn certain life skills that your own parents had fled to the suburbs specifically to unlearn, like how to interest the local cops in actually doing their job, and how to protect a bike from a highly motivated thief, and when to bother rousting a drunk from your lawn furniture, and how to encourage feral cats to shit in somebody else's children's sandbox, and how to determine whether a public school sucked too much to bother trying to fix it. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen

Bother quotes by Faiqa Mansab
#117. Poor Chameli. Born an anomaly and abandoned at birth. God knows what she must have gone through as a child. How many times must she have been molested, raped and abused while she struggled to make sense of her place in life? And then one day, just like that, she was butchered. The end.

Why did I even bother to get up every day? Whose dreams came true? Who found love? Which one of us was happy and secure?

Life is faithless. It is death alone that walks faithfully alongside us, from the day we are born until the day it finally takes us into its cool, dark embrace.

Life is exacting and cruel. Death is calm oblivion. Life betrays everyone while death, without fail, always finds us. #Quote by Faiqa Mansab
Bother quotes by Damon Lindelof
#118. Hopping around time in a non-linear storytelling fashion (on 'Lost') allows you to bring back characters who are dead and, in some cases, buried. Now that time travel is the story itself, it opens up even more doors. So when an actor reads that they're getting killed off on the show, they're basically, like, 'Okay, but should I still bother to show up next week?' #Quote by Damon Lindelof
Bother quotes by Doc Childre

Bother quotes by Jenny Zhang
#120. Didn't it bother him that he was teaching his students poetry when he was certain it wouldn't make a difference in how their lives turned out? Didn't it bother him to be so sure that it was futile to even try? And what about us? What standards did we have? Weren't our fates sealed as well? What was I ever going to become? What stopped other people from looking at us and pitying us, how we didn't see the pointlessness in working so many jobs, moving from one shit place to another and scrimping on pennies, how we couldn't face the reality of our situation: that non of this was leading up to anywhere that was any different from where we had just been. #Quote by Jenny Zhang
Bother quotes by M.E. Thomas

Bother quotes by Margaret Atwood
#122. Most of us will. We'll choose knowledge no matter what, we'll maim ourselves in the process, we'll stick our hands into the flames for it if necessary. Curiosity is not our only motive: love or grief or despair or hatred is what drives us on. We'll spy relentlessly on the dead: we'll open their letters, we'll read their journals, we'll go through their trash, hoping for a hint, a final word, an explanation, from those who have deserted us--who've left us holding the bag, which is often a good deal emptier than we'd supposed.

But what about those who plant such clues, for us to stumble on? Why do they bother? Egotism? Pity? Revenge? A simple claim to existence, like scribbling your initials on a washroom wall? The combination of presence and anonymity--confession without penance, truth without consequences--it has its attractions. Getting the blood off your hands, one way or another.

Those who leave such evidence can scarcely complain if strangers come along afterwards and poke their noses into every single thing that would once have been none of their business. And not only strangers: lovers, friends, relations. We're voyeurs, all of us. Why should we assume that anything in the past is ours for the taking, simply because we've found it? We're all grave robbers, once we open the doors locked by others.

But only locked. The rooms and their contents have been left intact. If those leaving them had wanted oblivion, there was always fire. #Quote by Margaret Atwood

Bother quotes by Ilona Andrews
#126. I could do this. I just had to be careful and not punch her. Piece of cake.
"Hi," Heather said, stretching the word. She walked carefully, as if worried I'd bite her.
"Hi!" Kate Daniels, a good neighbor. Would you like some cookies?
"I'm sorry to bother you . . . What is that smell?"
Spider guts. "How can I help you?"
"Umm, the neighbors asked me to bring some issues to your attention."
I bet they did, and she bravely soldiered under that burden. "Shoot."
"It's about the mailbox."
I could see the communal mailbox out of the corner of my eye. It seemed intact.
"You see, the mailman saw your husband during one of his walks."
"He's my fiancé," I told her. "We are living in sin."
Heather blinked, momentarily knocked off her stride, but recovered. "Oh, that's nice."
"It's very nice. I highly recommend it."
"As I was saying, he saw your fiancé when he was in his animal shape. How to put it . . . He became alarmed."
That was generally a normal reaction when encountering Curran for the first time.
"We are not sure if they will deliver mail again."
"Did you receive any official notices from the post office?"
"No, but . . ." Heather tried a smile. "We were thinking maybe your fiancé could not do that anymore."
"Do what?" I had a sudden urge to strangle Heather. I was so tired of people acting like Curran was an inhuman spree killer who would murder babies in their sleep.

Bother quotes by John Kennedy Toole
#129. But I knew the way the people in the town thought about things. They always had some time left over from their life to bother about other people and what they did. They thought they had to get together to help other people out, like the time they got together about the woman who let a colored man borrow her car and told her the best place for her was up north with all the other nigger lovers, and the time they got the veterans with overseas wives out. If you were different from anybody in town, you had to get out. That's why everybody was so much alike. The way they talked, what they did, what they liked, what they hated. If somebody got to hate something and he was the right person, everybody had to hate it too, or people began to hate the ones who didn't hate it. They used to tell us in school to think for yourself, but you couldn't do that in the town. You had to think what your father thought all his life, and that was what everybody thought. #Quote by John Kennedy Toole

#133. 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
Bother quotes by Jonathan Carroll
#134. I had once thought strength of character was a hardening of oneself; an intricate protection system by which you reconciled yourself to the truths of life and learned to let them not bother you. But all systems of character building go right out the window when you find there aren't anymore truths.. or none you recognize. #Quote by Jonathan Carroll

I got stuck one day on a story and finally, with the desperation of youth, I took my problem to him, although it seemed cheeky to bother him. How was I to express a certain thing? … I asked him how I could get around my difficulty.

He thought for a minute. Then he said, 'Just say the words'. #Quote by E.B. White

But never mind; they will be just as wrong themselves in their turn. #Quote by Gwen Raverat

Bother quotes by Stephen Leacock
#149. But after all
I say this as a kind of afterthought in conclusion
why bother with success at all? I have observed that the successful people get very little real enjoyment out of life. In fact the contrary is true. If I had to choose
with an eye to having a really pleasant life
between success and ruin, I should prefer ruin every time. I have several friends who are completely ruined
some two or three times
in a large way of course; and I find that if I want to get a really good dinner, where the champagne is just as it ought to be, and where hospitality is unhindered by mean thoughts of expense, I can get it best at the house of a ruined man. #Quote by Stephen Leacock
Bother quotes by Erin Reese
#150. India – a land where the last thing one needs to bother with is looking good. In India – at least in the circles I moved in – it's natural to look beautiful by the smile in your heart and the way you move through the world. #Quote by Erin Reese
Bother quotes by Phil Collins
#151. I can't play anywhere near like I used to, and I was a hot drummer. It doesn't bother me, because frankly, if you get to that point where you can't hold a drumstick properly, there are many other things in life which are far more important, like cutting a loaf of bread or a piece of cheese. #Quote by Phil Collins
Bother quotes by Christopher Pike
#152. I am a vampire. Blood does not bother me. #Quote by Christopher Pike
Bother quotes by Suzanne Collins
#153. Telling a story in a futuristic world gives you this freedom to explore things that bother you in contemporary times. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Bother quotes by Charlie Munger
#154. Missing out on some opportunity never bothers us. What's wrong with someone getting a little richer than you? It's crazy to worry about this ... #Quote by Charlie Munger
Bother quotes by Gretchen Rubin
#155. What I Value What's most satisfying to me: saving time, or money, or effort? Does it bother me to act differently from other people, or do I get a charge out of it? Do I spend a lot of time on something that's important to someone else, but not to me? If I had $500 that I had to spend on fun, how would I spend it? Do I like to listen to experts, or do I prefer to figure things out for myself? Does spending money on an activity make me feel more committed to it, or less committed? Would I be happy to see my children have the life I've had? #Quote by Gretchen Rubin
Bother quotes by Christine Feehan
#156. I steal things."
"You do what?"
She wanted to smile at the incredulous tone. "Is stealing worse than killing? I thought it was all bad."
"You just surprised me." He didn't flinch at her candid assessment of what he did, but it bothered him - and people's opinions didn't bother him. He had his own moral code, a code of strict honor. It shouldn't matter what she said . . . but it did. She wasn't accusing or even judgmental, just matter-of-fact and perhaps that was what got under his skin. That she just accepted what he was. One-dimensional, as if that was all he was. And all he would ever be. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Bother quotes by Aimee Herman
#157. I never want to be known. I'd rather be alone than have everyone talk about me and bother about my life. That's why I want to be an astronaut. I just want to travel into space and stay there. Be somewhere where no one else goes. #Quote by Aimee Herman
Bother quotes by Joe Schreiber
#158. I d-duh-don't know wh-why you even b-buh -bother b-buh-because in s-six y-yuh-years y-you're g-guh-going to be j-juh-just l-like - ""Don't say that."Something inside me went cold. "I'm never going to be like him. #Quote by Joe Schreiber
Bother quotes by Heidi Klum
#159. I think you just have to be comfortable in your skin. But, I'm a nudist in any case. I've never had a problem with my body and I don't really care what people think, so I have bottoms on and pretty much go topless, or also when we shoot - we did a lot of nude pictures today, too - it doesn't bother me in the slightest. #Quote by Heidi Klum
Bother quotes by Melissa Haag
#160. My arms quickly grew too tired, and all the heat I'd gained from the shower left me. Giving up, I tossed the towel to the floor, crawled between the covers, and curled into a ball. I couldn't even rub my feet together to try to generate more heat. Clay walked in and turned off the lights. I listened to the familiar rustle of clothes. Instead of the usual bounce of him jumping up on the end of the bed, he peeled back the covers, and the bed dipped as he slid in next to me. I didn't bother to pretend I wasn't interested in what he offered. Heat radiated from him, chasing the chill from the sheets. "I really hope you're wearing shorts or something," I said with a slight slur. I stuck my cold feet right on his legs and shimmied over to his side to huddle against his warmth. Boy, was he warm. It didn't matter, though. The shaking didn't stop, but I was too exhausted to worry about it. Sighing, #Quote by Melissa Haag
Bother quotes by Boy George
#161. I'm very uncomfortable with the idea of vaginas. They bother me in the way that spiders bother some people. #Quote by Boy George
Bother quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#162. And so, if you wish to glimpse inside a human soul and get to know a man, don't bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, or seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you'll get better results if you just watch him laugh. If he laughs well, he's a good man. You must, however, note all the shades of his laugh. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Bother quotes by Jason Marsden
#163. Heights don't bother me ... It's falling and cracking my skull that freaks me out. #Quote by Jason Marsden
Bother quotes by Tara Brown
#164. I know fear. Fear that cripples you. Fear that takes everything from you. The loss of my dream in the middle of the night ain't the issue. The warmth of the heavy air don't bother me none. Being woken to the feeling of someone's whispered words on my lips wouldn't be disturbing, if I knew whose words they was. But #Quote by Tara Brown
Bother quotes by Bruce Nash
#165. It's very difficult to get your ideas to Hollywood if you're the average Joe or Jane. An agent wouldn't bother with you. #Quote by Bruce Nash
Bother quotes by Karl Lagerfeld
#166. Be politically correct, but please don't bother other people with conversation about being politically correct, because that's the end of everything. You want to create boredom? Be politically correct in your conversation. #Quote by Karl Lagerfeld
Bother quotes by S.E. Jakes
#167. Everyone was upset that Dash hadn't trusted them. What Dash didn't bother to tell them was that this time he didn't even trust himself. #Quote by S.E. Jakes
Bother quotes by Vidya Balan
#168. I don't bother about how people feel about me. What matters to me is how I feel about them. #Quote by Vidya Balan
Bother quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#169. The problem was, of course, that people did not seem to understand the difference between right and wrong. They needed to be reminded of this, because if you left it to them to work out for themselves they would never bother. They would just find out what was best for them and they would call that the right thing. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Bother quotes by John Waters
#170. I have no interest in ever making a movie I didn't write. If they were going to take my house away, then I guess I might have to. But my agent knows not to even bother sending me the scripts. #Quote by John Waters
Bother quotes by Catherine Marshall
#171. Have you ever watched a baby learning to walk? He totters, arms stretched out to balance himself. He wobbles - and falls, perhaps bumps his nose. Then he puts the palms of his little hands flat on the floor, hikes his rear end up, looks around to see if anybody is watching him. If nobody is, usually he doesn't bother to cry, just precariously balances himself - and tries again. Well, the baby can teach us. What you've undertaken ... isn't a state of perfection to be arrived at all of the sudden. It's a WALK, and a walk isn't static but ever-changing. We Friends say that all discouragement is from an evil source and can only end in more evil. Wallowing in self-condemnation or feeling sorry for yourself is worse than falling on your face in the first place ... So thee is human. #Quote by Catherine Marshall
Bother quotes by Douglas Adams
#172. The recession came and we decided it would save a lot of bother if we just slept through it. So we programmed the computers to revive us when it was all over. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Bother quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#173. Why bother with fictional characters and plots when the world was full of more marvelous stories that were true, with characters so fresh, so powerful, so new, that they stepped from into the narratives under their own power? #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Bother quotes by J.R. Ward
#174. I am praying for your eternal soul."
"Don't bother."
"Come on, don't you want to go to Heaven?"
"I wouldn't know anyone up there. And don't get too prissy with that religious bullshit, true? I don't want to spend an eternity without you, so you need to come to Dhunhd with me."
"Will they have milk duds there?"
"yes, but they'll all be melted together. And we'll be surrounded by Yankees fans, televangelists, and no booze."
"We'll think of some way to pass the time."
"We always do. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Bother quotes by Frank Beddor
#175. She didn't bother to understand it all; it was history
boring boring boring. #Quote by Frank Beddor
Bother quotes by Suzanne Wright
#176. You'll pay for this". I had to battle a smile. She didn't bother to hide hers.
"If you mean you're going to tie me to the bed again and make me come over and over until I can't think straight… come and give it to me".
"I did. You swallowed it, remember?"
"Ooh, good one. #Quote by Suzanne Wright
Bother quotes by Darynda Jones
#177. Hey, I'm going to Super Dog for a quick bite and to pass along a message from a dead guy to his girlfriend. You should come with me."
"I can't go with you."
"Is it because of my questionable morals?"
"No, it's because it's three o'clock in the afternoon and I have to pick up Amber from school."
"Oh, right. So the morals thing doesn't bother you? #Quote by Darynda Jones
Bother quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#178. The witcher smiled faintly but quite nastily. "If I understand correctly," he said, "I'm to fight the duel because, if I refuse, I'll be hanged. If I fight, I'm to allow my opponent to injure me because if I wound him, I'll be put to the rack. What charming alternatives. Maybe I should save you the bother? I'll thump my head against the pine tree and render myself helpless. Will that grant you satisfaction?" "Don't #Quote by Andrzej Sapkowski
Bother quotes by Edmund Morgan
#179. The southern colonists were not preoccupied with their own historical significance and mostly did not bother even to make the records of births, marriages, and deaths that they required of themselves by law. Nor did they write accounts of what they were up to for the benefit of posterity. #Quote by Edmund Morgan
Bother quotes by Molly Ivins
#180. If you ever get to the place where injustice doesn't bother you, you're dead. #Quote by Molly Ivins
Bother quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#181. She had spent all her life in feeling miserable; this misery was her native element; its fluctuations, its varying depths, alone save her the impression of moving and living. What bothers me is that a sense of misery, and nothing else, is not enough to make a permanent soul. My enormous and morose Mademoiselle is all right on earth but impossible in eternity. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Bother quotes by Elle Aycart
#182. I love you. Taking care of you is not a bother, princess. It's my prerogative. I want you, forever. All of you. Yes, sometimes you make me spitting mad, and yes, you've given me headaches, and you'll probably give me many more, but I'll tak all of them gladly for a chance to wake up to you every morning for the rest of my life. There is nothing about you I'd change. And as sure as fuck I don't regret you. I'm crazy in with you, Tate. #Quote by Elle Aycart
Bother quotes by Meg Rosoff
#183. Would it really be better, he wanted to ask, if it were always this nice? Would anyone bother to notice? Or would they simply pass through a night like this, unmoved?
And (this was more to the point) if life were without flaws and no one ever changed or died, what role would God have?
A muffled sound of voices reached him. Above, the stars glittered so large and bright, he thought he might throw a net and pull them towards him like whiting. Boats slid past him in the inky dark but failed to enter his thoughts. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Bother quotes by Laurelin Paige
#184. Did this bother him because he'd made rules about his life? Or did the rules about his life come because things like this bothered him? #Quote by Laurelin Paige
Bother quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#185. The leap of faith is this: You have to believe, or at least pretend you believe until you really believe it, that you are strong enough to take life face on. Eating disorders, on any level, are a crutch. They are also an addiction and illness, but there is no question at all that they are quite simply a way of avoiding the banal, daily, itchy pain of life. Eating disorders provide a little drama, they feed into the desire for constant excitement, everything becomes life-or-death, everything is terribly grand and crashing, very Sturm and Drang. And they are distracting. You don't have to think about any of the nasty minutiae of the real world, you don't get caught up in that awful boring thing called regular life, with its bills and its breakups and its dishes and laundry and groceries and arguments over whose turn it is to change the litter box and bedtimes and bad sex and all that, because you are having a real drama, not a sitcom but a GRAND EPIC, all by yourself, and why would you bother with those foolish mortals when you could spend hours and hours with the mirror, when you are having the most interesting sado-machistic affair with your own image? #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Bother quotes by K. Stephens
#186. Jamie came back to the apartment one night to find her spreading a viscous fluid onto a canvas. It was threaded wtih blood. "Good God," he said. "What the hell is that?"
Pia didn't bother to look up but continued to knead the clear slime across the canvas. "It's my new piece."
"But what is it?" He kept pointing. He'd never seen something so disgusting in his life. And her hands were completely in it.
"It's Jodie's placenta. She gave it to me. I'm going to tack it up and let it dry on this canvas. Then I'm gonna glue-gun pictures of dead fetuses onto Lucite and make them the centerpeice."
"Uh huh."
She raised her sticky hands to him. "It's about women, you know? The way that the world opresses them, all right? And it's about babies, and . . . I don't know . . . I just got the placenta today."
"Wow, that's wow . . . that's . . ." No words for this. He scratched his chin as she spread her hands in a concentric motion across the canvas. "So, do you really think anyone's gonna want to put that up on their wall when it's done?" he asked.
She scowled, displeased. #Quote by K. Stephens
Bother quotes by James Taylor
#187. I know there are people who don't like their audience or like the experience of being recognized or celebrated, but my audience has been very good - they don't bother me and when they do contact me it's usually on the nicest possible terms. #Quote by James Taylor
Bother quotes by Claire Messud
#188. You could control what you did, if you wanted to....Was it efficient? Was it productive? ...So many people didn't bother -- a kind of stupidity...a lack of vision, or purpose. Anyone who said they just woke up and found themselves in the place they'd always wanted to be was lying; and anyone who believed such a person was a fool. It was all a matter of will. #Quote by Claire Messud
Bother quotes by Simone Martel
#189. Why do we make gardens? The act seems so extravagant, so illogical. Don't we have enough hard work in our lives already? Are we looking for more? Why on earth do we bother?
It takes a kind of courage. You have to learn to cherish. You have to dare, to take the risk, to bother, to care. To make a garden, you have to be able to love and to see yourself as capable of nurturing.
It takes patience, too. If the garden is to thrive you must commit yourself to it for years, for the creation of a garden takes place over time. Like a child, a garden has needs that have to be met, whether we feel like it or not, day after day.
You have to have confidence. You have to take charge and be responsible. You have to act upon the garden.
And you have to let it act upon you. Because it will act upon you. And will knit you together with the rest of the world. It will not let you stand apart.
The challenge is hard, but it is irresistible. To get dirty, to get involved. To act and be acted upon. That is life. If we stop accepting that challenge, we stop living. #Quote by Simone Martel
Bother quotes by J. Robbins
#190. I think there's been this long cycle of the big companies making a lot of money by underestimating people's intelligence and people are used to it now. So, they're so used to having their intelligence underestimated that, for most of them, it really isn't worth the bother of paying a little more attention to something that might hit them on a deeper level. But you can't really read people's minds. #Quote by J. Robbins
Bother quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#191. I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright ... Or maybe "stupid" is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Bother quotes by Haruki Murakami
#192. If, as the dowager had said, we are nothing but gene carriers, why do so many of us have to lead such strangely shaped lives? Wouldn't our genetic purpose - to transmit DNA - be served just as well if we lived simple lives, not bothering our heads with a lot of extraneous thoughts, devoted entirely to preserving life and procreating? Did it benefit the genes in any way for us to lead such intricately warped, even bizarre, lives? #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Bother quotes by Hannah Arendt
#193. What I cannot live with may not bother another man's conscience. The result is that conscience will stand against conscience. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Bother quotes by Janet Evanovich
#194. Rule three, never underestimate nosy neighbors. Mrs. Rupp called and wanted to know why you were standing in the alley, looking into her windows, and she was wondering if she should call the police. I explained it was most likely *my* windows you were looking in and reminded her that *I* was the police, so she needn't bother with another phone call. #Quote by Janet Evanovich
Bother quotes by Mia Moretti
#195. It's too hot for me to bother with wearing my hair down in the summer. I'd rather pin it up in braids, or throw it in a top knot so I don't have to think about it the rest of the day. #Quote by Mia Moretti
Bother quotes by Hubert Selby Jr.
#196. He looked at the houses he had been passing these weeks and though he had never studied them carefully they had become familiar through the process of seeing them so often, and he was now impressed with the change in their appearance as he looked at them through the gray of the air and whiteness of the snow, each house, shrub, tree, bush and mailbox trimmed with snow and blending into the air as if they were just a picture projected upon the still, pearly grayness, just an impression created by the silent snow, a picture on the edge and verge of disappearing and leaving only the air and snow through which he now lightly walked.
It did not seem possible, but the air was even softer and quieter. He continued walking alongside his prints feeling he could walk forever, that as long as the silent snow continued falling he could continue walking, and as he did he would leave behind all worries and cares, all horrors of the past and future. There would be nothing to bother him or torture his mind and fill his body with tremors of fear, the dark night of the soul over. There would only be himself and the soft, silent snow; and each flake, in its own life, its own separate and distinct entity, would bring with it its own joy, and he would easily partake of that joy as he continued walking, the gentle, silent snow falling ever so quietly, ever so joyously ... yes, and ever so love-ing-ly ... loveing-ly.... #Quote by Hubert Selby Jr.
Bother quotes by Veronica Purcell
#197. If achieving a desired goal was easy why would anyone bother. There'd be no fun. #Quote by Veronica Purcell
Bother quotes by Emma Roberts
#198. If I'm having a really bad day, I always have a girlfriend - or even a guy friend - who I can call. They'll listen to me wallow for a minute and then be like, 'Okay, let's stop. Everything's great. Let's figure out how to fix whatever's bothering you.' #Quote by Emma Roberts
Bother quotes by Jack Whittaker
#199. It doesn't bother me because I can tell everyone to kiss off. #Quote by Jack Whittaker
Bother quotes by Ehsan Sehgal
#200. I do not bother and care, such love that does not address, in a direct way. The words of love only can effect, when those are, openly to whom you love. Otherwise, such words are just as beautiful quotes or lovely feelings of an author. #Quote by Ehsan Sehgal
