Cold Turkey quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#1. And my car back then, a Studebaker as I recall, was powered, as are most of all means of transportation and other machinery today, and electric power plants and furnaces, by the most abused, addictive, and destructive drugs of all: fossil fuels.
When you got here, even when I got here, the industrialized world was already hopelessly hooked on fossil fuels, and very soon now there won't be any left. Cold turkey.
Can I tell you the truth? I mean this isn't the TV news is it? Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial. And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey, our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is left of what we're hooked on. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Cold Turkey quotes by Keith Richards
#2. I can't imagine what other people think cold turkey is like. It is fucking awful. On the scale of things, it's better than having your leg blown off in the trenches. It's better than starving to death. But you don't want to go there. The whole body just sort of turns itself inside out and rejects itself for three days. You know in three days it's going to calm down. It's going to be the longest three days you've spent in your life, and you wonder why you're doing this to yourself when you could be living a perfectly normal fucking rich rock star life. And there you are puking and climbing walls. Why do you do that to yourself? I don't know. I still don't know. Your skin crawling, your guts churning, you can't stop your limbs from jerking and moving about, and you're throwing up and shitting at the same time, and shit's coming out your nose and your eyes, and the first time that happens for real, that's when a reasonable man says, "I'm hooked." But even that doesn't stop a reasonable man from going back on it. #Quote by Keith Richards
Cold Turkey quotes by Jarod Kintz
#3. I'm addicted to warm Thanksgiving bird meat, but I should just quit cold turkey. To me, the beginning of December is like leftover November. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Cold Turkey quotes by Doug Shear
#4. Crashing from love is worse than crashing from pot, or LSD, or going cold turkey from heroin. Nobody should be allowed to do love. Love should be illegal. #Quote by Doug Shear
Cold Turkey quotes by Emma Forrest
#5. He was addicted to me
and now he has gone cold turkey.
He used to send me fifty texts a day.
And now he is ignoring me.
It's like I was once his Barack Obama.
And now I am John McCain,
conceding defeat like a sad-face sock puppet, knowing I have sold the best of myself.
He, my electorate,
not only does not want me,
he actively feels pity. #Quote by Emma Forrest
Cold Turkey quotes by Emma Chase
#6. I've gone cold turkey. Completely. I haven't even jerked off. Not once. In nine frigging days. I think the buildup of semen is starting to affect my brain. Like sugar to a diabetic. #Quote by Emma Chase
Cold Turkey quotes by Gretchen Olson
#7. To Hope and to many more turkey sandwiches." "Thank you," I said, the cold turkey warming my stomach. After #Quote by Gretchen Olson
Cold Turkey quotes by Susan McIntire
#8. Getting caught up in someone else's dream is like a drug. Sometimes you have to go cold turkey. #Quote by Susan McIntire
Cold Turkey quotes by Ivan Illich
#9. Even if nonpolluting power were feasible and abundant, the use of energy on a massive scale acts on society like a drug that is physically harmless but psychically enslaving. A community can choose between Methadone and "cold turkey"-between maintaining its addiction to alien energy and kicking it in painful cramps-but no society can have a population that is hooked on progressively larger numbers of energy slaves and whose members are also autonomously active. #Quote by Ivan Illich
Cold Turkey quotes by Ben Bernanke
#10. Under a cold turkey strategy, at each policy meeting the Federal Open Market Committee would make its best guess about where it ultimately wants the funds rate to be and would move to that rate in a single step. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Cold Turkey quotes by John Lennon
#11. I'll be a good boy, please make me well. I promise you anything, get me out of this hell. Cold turkey has got me on the run. #Quote by John Lennon
Cold Turkey quotes by John Berryman
#12. He had tried everything, cutting down (many devices), pipes, cigars, even cold turkey. He had quit once in Rome, for seven hours after breakfast, during the last two of which his (first) wife was begging him to take it up again. #Quote by John Berryman
Cold Turkey quotes by Catherine Zeta-Jones
#13. The smartest thing I did was to stop going online. I'm the sort of person who will just look for the negative - Michael really can't understand it, but that's just the way I am. And with my bipolar thing, that's poison. So I just stopped. Cold turkey. And it's so liberating. #Quote by Catherine Zeta-Jones
Cold Turkey quotes by Larry Hagman
#14. But there is no withdrawal, but with tobacco there is terrible withdrawal, it is almost impossible for a lot of people. I did, I went cold turkey, they never had any patches in those days but grass was not difficult, alcohol not difficult, but tobacco - oh my god. #Quote by Larry Hagman
Cold Turkey quotes by Rossana Condoleo
#15. Give up smoking cold turkey. Start a diet in the next 5 min. Accept that job right away. Life can be beautiful without planning! #Quote by Rossana Condoleo
Cold Turkey quotes by Rachel Cohn
#16. I was coming down off the last painkiller left in my dresser drawer after Autumn tossed my stash. In that moment I was so groggy and happy I would have accepted a date with Oscar the Grouch - and planned to do some serious feeling up on the green furry beast too. Yeah, stooping to pharmaceutical-inspired sex fantasies about garbage can Sesame Street characters - that had to be the best Just Say No drug lecture a girl in a leg cast could ever receive to make her go cold turkey off the meds. #Quote by Rachel Cohn
Cold Turkey quotes by A. Zavarelli
#17. Know what's worse than cold turkey? Just a little bump. One tiny sip to take the edge off. The edges never went away, they only got sharper. Every addict would tell you. Gray areas couldn't exist in a sober environment. #Quote by A. Zavarelli
Cold Turkey quotes by John Piper
#18. Prayer as a relationship is probably your best indicator about the health of your love relationship with God. If your prayer life has been slack, your love relationship has grown cold. #Quote by John Piper
Cold Turkey quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#19. Temptation...
What would the warning label in your life say? Something like this..
"You will think this is a way to ease the loneliness you feel. You will think it will make you feel all the things you deserve to feel: beautiful, respected, noticed, appreciated for who you are, and validated as special. You will think that you are the exception in being able to handle a flirty friendship without crossing any lines and that it won't hurt anyone. You will think this is going wonderful, because it stirs up such warm feelings in those places deep inside your heart that have felt cold for so long. You will think all those warm fuzzies are good for you. But it's all a lie. You are being blinded with desire. You are being made deaf to truth. You are reaching for a forbidden fruit that looks so good on the outside but is filled with razors on the inside. You can't even take a bite without getting cut. And, worst of all, even though you are bleeding from that first bite, you'll get so enamored with it's alluring sweetness that you'll keep eating it. You will devour this sin without realizing its devouring you. Trust me, your feelings are lying to you. This won't fix your disappointments. It will only multiply them into devastations. #Quote by Lysa TerKeurst
Cold Turkey quotes by Aesop
#20. I can't be friends with a man who blows hot and cold with the same breath. #Quote by Aesop
Cold Turkey quotes by Jamey Johnson
#21. Even a song on the radio that completely lacks substance is there for a reason. Sometimes, people need a break from cold reality; the song that you really don't have to put that much thought power into can be just as entertaining as something that might take you on a three- or four-minute cruise through the depth of reality. #Quote by Jamey Johnson
Cold Turkey quotes by Gregory Maguire
#22. And it's a cold place the world, especially when warmed by arsen. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Cold Turkey quotes by Alan Moore
#23. It's cold and it's mean spirited and I don't like it here anymore. #Quote by Alan Moore
Cold Turkey quotes by Craig M. Gay
#24. Christian hope frees us to act hopefully in the world. It enables us to act humbly and patiently, tackling visible injustices in the world around us without needing to be assured that our skill and our effort will somehow rid the world of injustice altogether. Christian hope, after all, does not need to see what it hopes for (Heb. 11:1); and neither does it require us to comprehend the end of history. Rather, it simply requires us to trust that even the most outwardly insignificant of faithful actions - the cup of cold water given to the child, the widow's mite offered at the temple, the act of hospitality shown to the stranger, none of which has any overall strategic socio-political significance so far as we can now see - will nevertheless be made to contribute in some significant way to the construction of God's kingdom by the action of God's creative and sovereign grace. #Quote by Craig M. Gay
Cold Turkey quotes by George R R Martin
#25. The truth will set us free. But freedom is cold and empty and frightening, and lies can often be warm and beautiful. #Quote by George R R Martin
Cold Turkey quotes by Gail Tsukiyama
#26. I wanted to say something back to him, and I knew deep down that he was right, though I didn't have the words yet. Until that disease chose me, I had lived a charmed life of grace and ease, while Matsu had always to work hard for what he desired. He has always known where beauty comes from. Later on, when the disease spread over the left side of my face, I tried to accept the burden placed on me, to tell myself that real beauty comes from deep within. But I'm afraid sometimes I reverted back to my spoiled ways. But, Stephen-san, can you imagine what it was like to watch your own face slowly transformed into a monster? Have you ever awakened in the morning from a series of nightmares, fearing what you might have turned into during the night? I will not lie to you and tell you that it was easy. There were times when I thought I could actually feel my skin shrinking, pulling against my bones and muscles, slowly suffocating me. Matsu comforted me as much as he could by having me work on the house, or in the garden, but no matter how much pleasure I found in them, they were still cold and inanimate. I longed for my past life. Matsu always knew that the peace of mine I needed could only be found within myself. #Quote by Gail Tsukiyama
Cold Turkey quotes by Yann Martel
#27. There are many ways in which life's little candle can be snuffed out. A cold wind pursues us all. #Quote by Yann Martel
Cold Turkey quotes by Richard Laymon
#28. And he pictured her down below, turning slowly in the currents, her skin pale blue in the cold rays of sunlight slanting down through the water, her hair flowing lazily around her face. #Quote by Richard Laymon
Cold Turkey quotes by Mark Millar
#29. The big thing is it's a domestic drama. Everything else in science fiction tends to be high-concept. Really for the last 40 years or so I think sci-fi's been a little cold and a little inhuman quite often - certainly since the 1980s - and I really wanted to do something that almost felt like a regular, real-life drama but just set it in a sci-fi setting. I think the best stuff is always like that. #Quote by Mark Millar
Cold Turkey quotes by David Arnold
#30. I hope you were right," he whispered. "I hope there's beauty in my asymmetry."

"You weren't a nuisance," he continued, his words growing louder in the cold, snowy silence. "You were the Northern Dancer, sire of the century, the superest of all racehorses. #Quote by David Arnold
Cold Turkey quotes by Richard K. Morgan
#31. Fortified with self-loathing, with the reserves of sardonic contempt he'd absorbed in his time spent around Milacar, he'd gone to the gate tight-lipped and filled with a strange, queasy energy, as if walking to his own execution as well as Jelim's. He'd known at some deep, cold level that he would cope. He was wrong. Utterly. #Quote by Richard K. Morgan
Cold Turkey quotes by Alister E. McGrath
#32. For Christian writers, religious faith is not a rebellion against reason, but a revolt against the imprisonment of humanity within the cold walls of a rationalist dogmatism. #Quote by Alister E. McGrath
Cold Turkey quotes by Anne Lamott
#33. Tom has been having a difficult patch, and we meet at the church of IKEA as often as possible, because it is equidistant from our houses and always cheers us up. Yesterday I asked, 'In your depression, and with so many people having such a hard time, where is Advent?' He tried to wiggle out of it by saying, 'You Protestants and your little questions!' Then, when pushed, he said: 'Faith is a decision. Do we believe we are ultimately doomed and fucked and there's no way out? Or that God and goodness make a difference? There is heaven, community, and hope - and hope that there is life beyond the grave.'
'But Tom, at the same time, the grave is very real, dark and cold and lonely.' 'Advent is not for the naive. Because in spite of the dark and cold, we see light - you look up, or you make light, with candles, or with strands of lightbulbs on trees. And you give light. Beauty helps, in art and nature and faces. Friends help. Solidarity helps. If you ask me, when people return phone calls, it's about as good as it gets. And who knows beyond that. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Cold Turkey quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#34. On the hob was a little brass kettle, hissing and boiling; spread upon the floor was a warm, thick rug; before the fire was a folding-chair, unfolded and with cushions on it; by the chair was a small folding-table, unfolded, covered with a white cloth, and upon it were spread small covered dishes, a cup and saucer, and a tea-pot; on the bed were new, warm coverings, a curious wadded silk robe, and some books. The little, cold, miserable room seemed changed into Fairyland. It was actually warm and glowing. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Cold Turkey quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#35. Kings built tombs more splendid than the houses of the living and counted the names of their descent dearer than the names of their sons. Childless lords sat in aged halls musing on heraldry or in high cold towers asking questions of the stars. And so the kingdom of Gondor sank into ruin, the line of kings failed, the white tree withered and the rule of Gondor was given over to lesser men. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Cold Turkey quotes by Barbra Streisand
#36. Art finds a way to be constructive. It becomes heat in cold places; it becomes light in dark places. #Quote by Barbra Streisand
Cold Turkey quotes by Katerina Stoykova Klemer
#37. Often I Wish I Were
a potato.
Eyes opened
in all directions.
of the cold earth.
The difference
between life and death
for somebody. #Quote by Katerina Stoykova Klemer
Cold Turkey quotes by Elif Safak
#38. Obviously, Turkey is not a typical authoritarian regime, and obviously it's very important that there are free elections. But it's also obvious that this is not a liberal, mature democracy. This is why I call Turkey a wobbly democracy. At any time, it can tip over and fall down. #Quote by Elif Safak
Cold Turkey quotes by Seanan McGuire
#39. Because the air had smelled so sweet, and the sky had been black velvet, spangled with points of diamond light that didn't flicker at all, only burned constant and cold. Because the grass had been wet with dew, and the trees had been heavy with fruit. Because she had wanted to know what was at the end of the long path between the trees, and because she hadn't wanted to turn back before she understood everything. Because for the first time in forever, she'd felt like she was going home, and that feeling had been enough to move her feet, slowly at first, and then faster, and faster, until she had been running through the clean night air, and nothing else mattered, or would ever matter again. #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Cold Turkey quotes by Ted Alexandro
#40. A crowd is the only way to know if something works. Telling a friend or two doesn't matter. A crowd is what tells you what works or doesn't, so I'd rather go in front of them cold and see. #Quote by Ted Alexandro
Cold Turkey quotes by Martin Rees
#41. To most people in the U.K., indeed throughout Western Europe, space exploration is primarily perceived as 'what NASA does'. This perception is - in many respects - a valid one. Superpower rivalry during the Cold War ramped up U.S. and Soviet space efforts to a scale that Western Europe had no motive to match. #Quote by Martin Rees
Cold Turkey quotes by Harold Clarke Goddard
#42. Hamlet is to Macbeth somewhat as the Ghost is to the Witches. Revenge, or ambition, in its inception may have a lofty, even a majestic countenance, but when it has "coupled hell" and become crime, it grows increasingly foul and sordid. We love and admire Hamlet so much at the beginning that we tend to forget that he is as hot-blooded as the earlier Macbeth when he kills Polonius and the King, cold-blooded as the later Macbeth or Iago when he sends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern to death. #Quote by Harold Clarke Goddard
Cold Turkey quotes by A.S. Byatt
#43. Ice burns, and it is hard to the warm-skinned to distinguish one
sensation, fire, from the other, frost. #Quote by A.S. Byatt
Cold Turkey quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#44. How would this do you, Bingo?" I said at length. "A few plovers' eggs to weigh in with, a cup of soup, a touch of cold salmon, some cold curry, and a splash of gooseberry tart and cream with a bite of cheese to finish?"
I don't know that I had expected the man actually to scream with delight, though I had picked the items from my knowledge of his pet dishes, but I had expected him to say something. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Cold Turkey quotes by Rae Carson
#45. Even more than the cold, I'm frozen by the sadness in his beautiful eyes, deep and true. He squeezes them closed a moment and breathes deeply through his nose. Then, with one swift movement, he cups the back of my neck with a strong hand, pulls my head forward, and presses his lips to mine. He wastes precious moments kissing me, his tongue gliding across my lips, darting at my teeth. I open my mouth and kiss back just as eagerly. #Quote by Rae Carson
Cold Turkey quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#46. The Tippoo's life seemed charmed. He stepped in blood, but none of it was his and it seemed as though he could not die, but only kill, and so he did, cold-bloodedly, deliberately, exultantly defending his city and his dream against the barbarians who had come to snatch his tiger throne. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Cold Turkey quotes by George H. W. Bush
#47. I don't worry about superpower confrontation. You know, I lived through the Cold War days, and where everybody was worried about a Soviet Union armed to the teeth. I think we're going to get along fine with Russia, and I don't see them as internationally ambitious. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Cold Turkey quotes by Husnu Ozyegin
#48. The easiest way to get into northern Iraq is through Turkey. #Quote by Husnu Ozyegin
Cold Turkey quotes by Cy Young
#49. All us Youngs could throw. I used to kill squirrels with a stone when I was a kid, and my granddad once killed a turkey buzzard on the fly with a rock. #Quote by Cy Young
Cold Turkey quotes by Jennifer Egan
#50. And it was only as he rose from the bed, his body illuminated by the colored lights of the city, that I caught the glint of calculation behind his eyes, a cold, blank set to his face. His shadow self, and not a nice one. #Quote by Jennifer Egan
Cold Turkey quotes by Linus Pauling
#51. If you take a reasonable amount of vitamin C regularly, the incidence of the common cold goes down. If you get a cold and start immediately, as soon as you start sneezing and sniffling, the cold just doesn't get going. #Quote by Linus Pauling
Cold Turkey quotes by Eudora Welty
#52. On a cold bubbling spring, covered dishes and crocks and pitchers of milk and butter and so on flouated in a circle in the mild whirlpool, like horse on a merry-go-round, in the water that smelled of the mint that grew close by. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Cold Turkey quotes by Christian Bök
#53. Blond trollops who don go-go boots flop pompoms nonstop to do promos for floorshows. Wow! Hot blonds who doff cotton frocks show off soft bosoms. Hot to trot, two blonds who smooch now romp on cold wood floors for crowds of morons, most of whom hoot or howl: whoop, whoop #Quote by Christian Bök
Cold Turkey quotes by Robert F. Kennedy
#54. Recent scholarship confirms the portrait of John F. Kennedy sketched by his brother in Thirteen Days: a remarkably cool, thoughtful, nonhysterical, self-possessed leader, aware of the weight of decision, incisive in his questions, firm in his judgment, always in charge, steering his advisers perseveringly in the direction he wanted to go. "We are only now coming to understand the role he played in it," writes John Lewis Gaddis, the premier historian of the Cold War. #Quote by Robert F. Kennedy
Cold Turkey quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#55. Come now, be a man!' he thought. 'We are used to adversity; let's not be crushed by a mere disappointment, or else I shall have suffered for nothing. The heart breaks when it has swelled too much in the warm breath of hope, then finds itself enclosed in cold reality. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Cold Turkey quotes by Philip Pullman
#56. She couldn't get any further at that point. The sky full of stars seemed dead and cold, everything in it the result of the mechanical, indifferent interactions of molecules and particles that would continue for the rest of time whether Lyra lived or died, whether human beings were conscious or unconscious: a vast silent empty indifference, all quite meaningless.
Reason had brought her to this state. She had exalted reason over every other faculty. The result had been - was now - the deepest unhappiness she had ever felt. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Cold Turkey quotes by A.O. Esther
#57. Can I ask you something very personal while you try things on?"
"Yes, of course, what do you want to know?"
"…well, it's just that… I don't want to offend you," she said uncertainly.
"Oh come on, Akane, out with it!" Mitsuko prompted her, "I want to know the answer too!"
"Very well," agreed the little auburn pixie and cut to the chase:
"Where are your wings?"
The question was so unexpected that I burst out laughing.
"I had to part with them when I came down to Earth. "It's something every angel has to deal with if they're planning to spend any length of time down here."
"And what's your life like, up there?" Akane asked.
"In the Kingdom of Heaven, we live as beings of pure light." "Up there, there's no such thing as fear, pain, hot or cold. We don't know hunger, suffering, ageing or death. We have no need of food and we don't sleep. We are the messengers of God and we watch over the lives of mortals. We come to Earth often, but only as spirits, and once we've completed our task down here, we always go back to the White Woods. #Quote by A.O. Esther
Cold Turkey quotes by Andy Weir
#58. It was fucking cold. The rover and trailer regulate their own temperatures just fine, but things weren't hot enough in the bedroom. Story of my life. #Quote by Andy Weir
Cold Turkey quotes by Diane Ackerman
#59. The Lutz heck that emerges from his writings and actions drifted like a weather vane: charming when need be, cold-blooded when need be, tigerish or endearing, depending on his goal. Still, it is surprising that Heck the zoologist chose to ignore the accepted theory of hybrid vigor: that interbreeding strengthens a bloodline. He must have known that mongrels enjoy better immune systems and have more tricks up their genetic sleeves, while in a closely knit species, however "perfect," any illness that kills one animal threatens to wipe out all the others, which is why zoos keep careful studbooks of endangered animals such as cheetahs and forest bison and try to mate them advantageously. In any case, in the distant past, long before anyone was recognizably Aryan, our ancestors shared the world with other flavors of hominids, and interbreeding among neighbors often took place, producing hardier, nastier offspring who thrived. All present-day humans descend from that robust, talkative mix, specifically from a genetic bottleneck of only about one hundred individuals. A 2006 study of mitochondrial DNA tracks Ashkenazi Jews (about 92 percent of the world's Jews in 1931) back to four women, who migrated from the Near East to Italy in the second and third centuries. All of humanity can be traced back to the gene pool of one person, some say to a man, some a woman. It's hard to imagine our fate being as iffy as that, be we are natural wonders. #Quote by Diane Ackerman
