Confusing quotes by A.S. King
#1. I miss him so much, but it's confusing, because I missed him long before he was dead, and that's the bitch of it all. I missed him long before he was dead. #Quote by A.S. King
Confusing quotes by Georgina Harding
#2. What does it matter who a person is or who they have been? Let them think what they like. We're all so many people, aren't we, nowadays? So confusing it is, I don't know how anyone keeps track. There are the people we are inside, then the people we used to be, then there are the people other people think we are. #Quote by Georgina Harding
Confusing quotes by David Finkelstein
#3. Quantum theory was split up into dialects. Different people describe the same experiences in remarkably different languages. This is confusing even to physicists. #Quote by David Finkelstein
Confusing quotes by Nimrat Kaur
#4. As an actor, there are many confusing factors that can make you take or not take a decision. It becomes difficult. Your first and last checkpoint should be the story. I always read a script as an audience. #Quote by Nimrat Kaur
Confusing quotes by Mary Timony
#5. I will go through these style phases. I think it's confusing in some ways. People like bands to be really consistent. #Quote by Mary Timony
Confusing quotes by Bruce Sterling
#6. The gifts we received from the dead: those were the world's only genuine gifts. All other things in the world were commodities. The dead were, by definition, those who gave to us without reward. And, especially: our dead gave to us, the living, within a dead context. Their gifts to us were not just abjectly generous, but archaic and profoundly confusing.
Whenever we disciplined ourselves, in some vague hope of benefiting posterity, in some ambition to create a better future beyond our own moment in time, then we were doing something beyond a rational analysis. Those in that future could never see us with our own eyes: they would see us only with the eyes that we ourselves gave to them. Never our own eyes: always with their own. And the future's eyes always saw the truths of the past as blinkered, backward, halting. Superstition. #Quote by Bruce Sterling
Confusing quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#7. You can't start out again in life, that's a carriage ride you only take once, but with a book in your hand, no matter how confusing and perplexing it might be, once you've finished it, you can always go back to the beginning; if you like, you can read it through again, in order to figure out what you couldn't understand before, in order to understand life. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Confusing quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#8. Now that physics is proving the intelligence of the universe what are we to do about the stupidity of mankind? I include myself. I know that the earth is not flat but my feet are. I know that space is curved but my brain has been condoned by habit to grow in a straight line. What I call light is my own blend of darkness. What I call a view is my hand-painted trompe-l'oeil. I run after knowledge like a ferret down a ferret hole. My limitations, I call the boundaries of what can be known. I interpret the world by confusing other people's psychology with my own. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Confusing quotes by April Brookshire
#9. Jeez, that's the most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me," I replied sarcastically. "No wonder you don't have a girlfriend."

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

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

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

I glared up at him. "Wow, that was the second most romantic thing anyone has ever said to me. You're on a roll, Caleb. #Quote by April Brookshire
Confusing quotes by Anne Carson
#10. What would it be like to live in a library of melted books. With sentences streaming over the floor and all the punctuation settled to the bottom as a residue. It would be confusing. Unforgivable. A great adventure. #Quote by Anne Carson
Confusing quotes by Lemony Snicket
#11. The scientific principles of the convergence and refraction of light are very confusing, and quite frankly I can't make head or tail of them, even when my friend Dr. Lorenz explains them to me. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Confusing quotes by Sheri Fink
#12. The moral values, ethical codes and laws that guide our choices in normal times are, if anything, even more important to help us navigate the confusing and disorienting time of a disaster. #Quote by Sheri Fink
Confusing quotes by Jimmy Tudeski
#13. How comes when a man likes an attractive female, is he helping to exploit women around the world, yet the moment he doesn't fancy the female in question, he only hates on her because she's empowering women? Seriously, I don't get it - Rihanna and Nicki do exactly the same thing as far as I can see. They both sing, dance and gyrate their sexy stuff on stage, yet one empowers women, the other is being exploited, depending on which one I fancy the most at the point of being asked the sodding question. How the fuck does any of this make sense? #Quote by Jimmy Tudeski
Confusing quotes by Patricia C. Wrede
#14. Your levity is unbecoming, Richard, and not at all the point,' Mrs Lowe said, giving him a stern look.'In another week, the Season will be upon us, and as you have chosen to come to Town for once, I shall expect you to find a little more time for your social and family obligations.'
'Oh, you may expect whatever you like, Aunt.' Mairelon's tone was careless, but there was a set to his shoulders that told Kim he was not pleased.
'People are already arriving, and I fear there are quite a few who are ... confused about your proper standing'
'I can't imagine why. I'm the least confusing person I know. #Quote by Patricia C. Wrede
Confusing quotes by Jarod Kintz
#15. To me, the most confusing part about golf is that I don't know whether I'd rather actually be playing golf, or sitting on the green composing haikus about the landscaping. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Confusing quotes by Benoit B Mandelbrot
#16. The whole edifice of modern financial theory is, as described earlier, founded on a few simplifying assumptions. It presumes that homo economicus is rational and self-interested. Wrong, suggests the experience of the irrational, mob-psychology bubble and burst of the 1990's. A further assumption: that price variations follow the bell curve. Wrong, suggests the by-now widely accepted research of me and many others since the 1960's. And now the next assumption wobble: that price variations are what statisticians call i.i.d., independently and identically distributed-like the coin game with each toss unaffected by the last. Evidence for short-term dependence has already been mounting. And now comes the increasingly accepted but still confusing evidence of long-term dependence. #Quote by Benoit B Mandelbrot
Confusing quotes by Seth Patrick
#17. How easy do you think it'd be to get us out of here, Never?' she asked, and Never turned his head and grinned at her.
'Escape? Yeah. Right.' Then he saw the look in her eye. His grin dropped. 'You're serious.'
'You're the technical expert, right? You must have some idea how the security could work in a place like this. So give it some thought.'
'You're confusing me with the A-Team. But i'll try. #Quote by Seth Patrick
Confusing quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#18. To be exploited fundamentally means to be confused. When you're not confused you can't be exploited because you have clarity about the situation. To confuse people you must provide contradictory information. People who really want to do you harm will provide you confusing measures of good and bad feedback because that keeps you disorientated. Evil always want to camouflage itself as virtue witch means all the bad things that evil does is called justice against immorality. So they camouflage their brutality as a mask of virtue. Camouflage is so fundamentally an aspect of the predator-prey relationships.

The mugger does not camouflage himself but, that's because he can leave. He is gonna run off and you'll never find him or catch him or at least that's the goal or plan right? The relationships were you're supposed to stay and continue to provide resources are the ones were camouflage is the most essential because you're constantly looking at somebody who is a predator and that have to continually camouflage themselves as somebody who is not a predator. The most fundamental thing is the camouflage of non-empathy with empathy. This is why people who lack empathy always use the language of empathy and that's whats so confusing.

There are a lot of great antidotes to this. I mean, you just ask that person questions about yourself that they dont have any self interest in knowing and find out whether they know the answers. All the things personal to you that don #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Confusing quotes by Elisabeth Tova Bailey
#19. As the snail's world grew more familiar, my own human world became less so; my species was so large, so rushed, and so confusing. #Quote by Elisabeth Tova Bailey
Confusing quotes by Tom Cruise
#20. Sex is great, if you are in a relationship. Otherwise, I find sex actually not so interesting. Without a relationship it is confusing. #Quote by Tom Cruise
Confusing quotes by Juliann Garey
#21. The moment he leaves, the bees are back. Buzzing. I breathe in and feel their tiny feet in my bronchi. Buzz. Wings beeting in my alveoli. Flutterbuzz.
[ ... ]
Flutterflutterzzzzzzzzbuzzzzzz. I have to do something to make it stop. I have to feel something simple. This
is too complicated. Too confusing. I want to feel something about which there can be no argument or debate. Soemthing about which everything will be known. Here. Now. Something that will make all the rest stop.
There is an exquisite and audible pop when the hooked tip of the center tine in the fish fork punctures the fat purple vein. #Quote by Juliann Garey
Confusing quotes by Agatha Christie
#22. Once I went professionally to an archaeological expedition- and I learnt something there. In the course of an excavation, when something comes up out of the ground, evEryThing is cleared away very carefully all around it. You take away the loose earth, and you scare here and there with a knife until finally your object is there, all alone, ready to be drawn and photographed with no extraneous matter confusing it. That is what I have been seeking TO do- clear away the extraneous matter so that we can see the truth-the naked shining truth. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Confusing quotes by Anthony Paull
#23. Today, love came knocking at my window. To share with dad such a confusing, yet wonderful occasion would be great. Still, I keep this to myself. Who knows? In the future maybe dad and I can share more than silence but not until dad allows love to knock for me at the front door. #Quote by Anthony Paull
Confusing quotes by Yara Shahidi
#24. I really love acting, but I also really want to be a historian, so it's really confusing. #Quote by Yara Shahidi
Confusing quotes by Anna Kendrick
#25. I had a confusing relationship with my Barbies, but I love trolls. I tortured my Barbies. #Quote by Anna Kendrick
Confusing quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#26. I'm not sure what we're doing, to be perfectly honest
but nothing's on fire anymore. And I feel like maybe we've solved something. Even though this is probably just a new problem. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Confusing quotes by Rudy Rucker
#27. We talked a little set theory, and then I asked him my last question: "What causes the illusion of the passage of time?"
Gödel spoke not directly to this question, but to the question of what my question meant - that is, why anyone would even believe that there is a perceived passage of time at all.
He went on to relate the getting rid of belief in the passage of time to the struggle to experience the One Mind of mysticism. Finally he said this: "The illusion of the passage of time arises from confusing the given with the real. Passage of time arises because we think of occupying different realities. In fact, we occupy only different givens. There is only one reality. #Quote by Rudy Rucker
Confusing quotes by Jessica Verday
#28. Careful, Abbey," Caspian warned. "Don't get too close."
"He killed her, Caspian! He was the reason she was at the bridge that night."
"I know but
Vincent suddenly turned to face Caspian. "Could you just shut up? All this back and forht is really confusing. I'll get to you in a minute."
Caspian's jaw dropped.
So did mine.
"You can see him?" I asked. "Who are you?"
"Not who," Vincent said, a tone of sheer entitlement in his voice. "What. #Quote by Jessica Verday
Confusing quotes by John C. Wright
#29. Or, in your case, as wide. Wait. Did you just say Gandalf?"
"He is the founder of our order, and the first of the Five Warlocks. He comes from afar across the Western Ocean, from Easter Island, or perhaps from Japan."
"No, I think he comes from the mind of a story writer. An old-fashioned Roman Catholic from the days just before First Space Age. Unless I am confusing him with the guy who wrote about Talking Animal Land? With the Cowardly Lion who gets killed by a Wicked White Witch? I never read the text, I watched the comic."
"Oh, you err so! The Witches, we have preserved this lore since the time of the Fall of the Giants, whom we overthrew and destroyed. The tale is this: C. S. Lewis and Arthur C. Clarke were led by the Indian Maiden Sacagawea to the Pacific Ocean and back, stealing the land from the Red Man and selling them blankets impregnated with smallpox. It was called the Lewis and Clarke Expedition. When they reached the Pacific, they set out in the Dawn Treader to find the sea route to India, where the sacred river Alph runs through caverns measureless to man down to a sunless sea. They came to the Last Island, called Ramandu or Selidor, where the World Serpent guards the gateway to the Land of the Dead, and there they found Gandalf, returned alive from the underworld, and stripped of all his powers. He came again to mortal lands in North America to teach the Simon Families. The Chronicle is a symbolic retelling of their journey. It is one of our #Quote by John C. Wright
Confusing quotes by Whittaker Chambers
#30. Hence that morganatic bond between the forces of the left and the forces of the right (a director of a big steel company, the co-owner of a great department store, a figure high in the Republican organization, come quickly to mind) which made confusing common cause in exculpating Hiss by defaming Chambers. #Quote by Whittaker Chambers
Confusing quotes by Jonathan Anthony Burkett
#31. Find out how Claude and Kelly end up from being Friends 2 Lovers as you follow them through their disappointing, confusing, loving, shocking,encouraging, and romantic moments. But can their bond last and withstand all the challenges that cross their way? #Quote by Jonathan Anthony Burkett
Confusing quotes by Sam De Jong
#32. People link the 80s to that very liberal theme, growing up in a very liberal world, having ideals or not having ideals. The 80s were an confusing era. #Quote by Sam De Jong
Confusing quotes by Rowland S. Miller
#33. In particular, husbands and wives who do poorly at nonverbal communication tend to be dissatisfied with their marriages. Moreover, when such problems occur, it's usually the husband's fault .

In the first ingenious study of this sort, Patricia Noller (1980) found that
husbands in unhappy marriages sent more confusing messages and made more decoding errors than happy husbands did. There were no such differences among the wives, so the poorer communication Noller observed in the distressed marriages appeared to be the husbands' fault. Men in troubled marriages were misinterpreting communications from their wives that were clearly legible to total strangers.

Even worse, such husbands were completely clueless about their mistakes; they assumed that they were doing a fine job communicating with their wives, and were confident that they understood their wives and that their wives understood them. The men were doing a poor job communicating and didn't know it, and that's why they seemed to be at fault. #Quote by Rowland S. Miller
Confusing quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#34. But I am a storyteller, and that involves language, for me the English language, that wonderfully rich, complex, and ofttimes confusing tongue. When language is limited, I am thereby diminished, too. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Confusing quotes by Sting
#35. I try to give the media as many confusing images as I can to retain my freedom. What's real is for my children and the people I live with. #Quote by Sting
Confusing quotes by Rachael Rose Steil
#36. The greatest lesson I learned in this long and confusing journey was that my body was never broken, my mind was never beyond repair, and I was never really as alone as I thought I was. #Quote by Rachael Rose Steil
Confusing quotes by Robert Moss
#37. On a psychic level, we could be carrying energies and entities and cravings and habits and confusion and patterns of behavior from generation to generation that we don't want. We could also have picked up loose energies or entities from places we visit or live, and this could be very confusing. It could reinforce or even produce addictions and cravings that don't really belong to us. #Quote by Robert Moss
Confusing quotes by Ronda Rousey
#38. The confusing thing is we now live in a society where it's not illegal to be an asshole, but it's illegal to slap one. #Quote by Ronda Rousey
Confusing quotes by Robert Brault
#39. A family is a group of people who keep confusing you with someone you were as a kid. #Quote by Robert Brault
Confusing quotes by Teddy Thompson
#40. I'm a hybrid-genre person, which a lot of people find confusing. I grew up listening to American country music and rock n' roll made between 1955 and 1959. The Everly Brothers and Chuck Berry were my first musical loves and are still what I am most moved by. Roy Orbison came a little bit later. #Quote by Teddy Thompson
Confusing quotes by Alan W. Watts
#41. We have made a problem for ourselves by confusing the intelligible with the fixed. We think that making sense out of life is impossible unless the flow of events can somehow be fitted into a framework of rigid forms. To be meaningful, life must be understandable in terms of fixed ideas and laws, and these in turn must correspond to unchanging and eternal realities behind the shifting scene. But if this what "making sense out of life" means, we have set ourselves the impossible task of making fixity out of flux. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Confusing quotes by Alfred Korzybski
#42. For the layman, as well as for the majority of the physicists in their less sober, or metaphysical, moments, 'space' is 'emotionally' newtonian and an 'absolute void', which, of course, being 'absolute nothingness', cannot have objective existence, by definition. For Einstein, 'space-time' is, semantically, 'fulness', not 'emptiness', and, in his language, he does not need any term like 'ether', as his 'plenum', structurally, covers the ground, without his committing himself to a definite two-valued mechanistic ether. The confusion of orders of abstractions, from which we all suffer, is semantic, and is due to disregard of the structure and role of language. If we accept a non-el language of space-time, structurally we deal with fulness, and we should not use the term 'space', as its old semantic implications are 'emptiness', and so are very confusing. The 'sensation' of Einstein's declaration amounts to the fact that the sub-microscopic fulness ('space') is more important than a few kinks or concentrations of that fulness ('matter'), - a fact which science has established, and which is quite obvious. #Quote by Alfred Korzybski
Confusing quotes by Robert Frost
#43. But bid life seize the present?
It lives less in the present
Than in the future always,
And less in both together
Than in the past.
The present
Is too much for the senses,
Too crowding, too confusing
Too present to imagine. #Quote by Robert Frost
Confusing quotes by Margarita Engle
#44. How long will it be until the two countries I love forgive each other and move on ... I'm not even sure what there is to forgive. Something about Cuba seizing ownership of oil refineries. It's all so confusing. Why should something as ugly as oil affect friendships between nations? #Quote by Margarita Engle
Confusing quotes by Haile Selassie I
#45. The temple of the most high begins with the body which houses our life, the essence of our existence. Africans are in bondage today because they approach spirituality through religion provided by foreign invaders and conquerors. We must stop confusing religion and spirituality. Religion is a set of rules, regulations and rituals created by humans, which was suppose to help people grow spiritually. Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, political, divisive and a tool for power struggle. Spirituality is not theology or ideology. It is simply a way of life, pure and original as was given by the Most High of Creation. Spirituality is a network linking us to the Most High, the universe, and each other… #Quote by Haile Selassie I
Confusing quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#46. Moods are by nature compelling, contagious, and profoundly interpersonal, and disorders of mood alter the perceptions and behaviors not only of those who have them but also of those who are related or closely associated. Manic-depressive illness - marked as it is by extraordinary and confusing fluctuations in mood, personality, thinking, and behavior - inevitably has powerful and often painful effects on relationships. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Confusing quotes by Marc Almond
#47. I think in the past I think I probably was a little too diverse, probably went from one spectrum to the complete opposite and confusing people. #Quote by Marc Almond
Confusing quotes by Sarah Chalke
#48. I was 17 and the whole thing was very confusing at the time. It was a great job and I loved it, and to lose the role was definitely tough for me. I was devastated when I lost the role. #Quote by Sarah Chalke
Confusing quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#49. I was on the first one when I felt his fingers encircle my wrist. "Sophie, come on. I don't want to fight with you."
Turning, I opened my mouth to say I didn't want to fight with him either. But before I could, I saw the telltale flash out of the corner of my eye, and the next thing I knew, my arm was jerking out of his grasp. "If you don't want to fight with her, maybe you shouldn't suggest she team up with people who want to kill her," my voice snarled.
Archer backed up so fast he nearly stumbled, and I wasn't sure I'd ever seen him look so freaked out. But he recovered quickly. "Elodie, if I wanted to talk to you, I'd do a séance or something. Maybe go on an episode of Ghost Hunters. But right now, I want to talk to Sophie. So clear out."
Elodie had no intention of doing that. "You always were a crappy boyfriend," she said. "Once you left, I chalked that up to you, you know, not actually liking me. But unless I'm blind as well as dead, you really like Sophie. In fact, hard as it is for me to fathom, I think you love her."
Shut up, shut up, shut up!
Screw that, she retorted. You two spend all your time making stupid jokes and being all witty. Someone has to get real.
"What's your point?" Archer asked, narrowing his eyes at me. Her. Whatever. God, this was getting confusing.
"Cal loves her, too, you know. And the last time I checked, he wasn't part of a cult of monster killers. I'm just saying that if you're going have loyalties that divid #Quote by Rachel Hawkins
Confusing quotes by Rob Sheffield
#50. For two weeks, I lay awake at night and said Hail Marys over and over to stop my heart from beating too fast. I suddenly realized how much being a husband was about fear: fear of not being able to keep somebody safe, of not being able to protect somebody from all the bad stuff you want to protect them from. Knowing they have more tears in them than you will be able to keep them from crying. I realized that Renee had seen me fail, and that she was the person I was going to be failing in front for the rest of my life. It was just a little failure, but it promised bigger failures to come. Additional ones, anyway. But that's who your wife is, the person you fail in front of. Love it so confusing; there's no peace of mind. #Quote by Rob Sheffield
Confusing quotes by William Safire
#51. If you want to "get in touch with your feelings," fine, talk to yourself. We all do. But if you want to communicate with another thinking human being, get in touch with your thoughts. Put them in order, give them a purpose, use them to persuade, to instruct, to discover, to seduce. The secret way to do this is to write it down, and then cut out the confusing parts. #Quote by William Safire
Confusing quotes by Kate DiCamillo
#52. I lay there and thought how life was like a Littmus Lozenge, how the sweet and the sad were all mixed up together and how hard it was to separate them out. It was confusing. #Quote by Kate DiCamillo
Confusing quotes by Brian Spellman
#53. Fifty percent of life is ninety percent indecisive. The rest is confusing. #Quote by Brian Spellman
Confusing quotes by Douglas Adams
#54. His house was certainly peculiar, and since this was the first thing that Fenchurch and Arthur had encountered it would help to know what it was like.

It was like this:

It was inside out.

Actually inside out, to the extent that they had had to park on the carpet.

All along what one would normally call the outer wall, which was decorated in a tasteful interior-designed pink, were bookshelves, also a couple of those odd three-legged tables with semicircular tops which stand in such a way as to suggest that someone just dropped the wall straight through them, and pictures which were clearly designed to soothe.

Where it got really odd was the roof.

It folded back on itself like something that M. C. Escher, had he been given to hard nights on the town, which it is no part of this narrative's purpose to suggest was the case, though it is sometimes hard, looking at his pictures, particularly the one with all the awkward steps, not to wonder, might have dreamed up after having been on one, for the little chandeliers which should have been hanging inside were on the outside pointing up.


The sign above the front door said "Come Outside," and so, nervously, they had.

Inside, of course, was where the Outside was. Rough brickwork, nicely done pointing, guttering in good repair, a garden path, a couple of small trees, some rooms leading off.

And the inner walls stretched #Quote by Douglas Adams
Confusing quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#55. Once we get those muddy, maddening, confusing thoughts [nebulous worries, jitters, and preoccupations] on the page, we face our day with clearer eyes. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Confusing quotes by Samuel Beckett
#56. And I am perhaps confusing several different occasions, and different times, deep down, and deep down is my dwelling, oh not deepest down, somewhere between the mud and the scum. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Confusing quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#57. Today, the need to avoid confusing marriage with other types of unions based on weak love is especially urgent. It is only the rock of total, irrevocable love between a man and a woman that can serve as the foundation on which to build a society that will become a home for all mankind. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Confusing quotes by Lorde
#58. I think I'm speaking for a bunch of girls when I say that the idea that feminism is completely natural and shouldn't even be something that people find mildly surprising ... I find a lot of feminist reading quite confusing and that often there's a set of rules, and people will be like, 'Oh, this person isn't a true feminist because they don't embody this one thing,' and I don't know, often there is a lot of gray area that can be hard to navigate. #Quote by Lorde
Confusing quotes by Zoe Kravitz
#59. There are a bunch of images that are thrown in our faces all the time about what we're supposed to look like at 14, 15, 16. It's confusing. I think every woman can identify with that struggle. #Quote by Zoe Kravitz
Confusing quotes by M.E. Thomas
#60. Failure to conform to social norms. I prefer to define my sociopathy as a set of traits that inform my personality but don't define me: I am generally free of entangling and irrational emotions, I am strategic and canny, I am intelligent and confident and charming, but I also struggle to react appropriately to other people's confusing and emotion-driven social cues. #Quote by M.E. Thomas
Confusing quotes by Rob Reiner
#61. Usually I don't like to act in movies that I direct because it's kind of confusing. #Quote by Rob Reiner
Confusing quotes by Jarod Kintz
#62. Gin is a confusing drink. It's the only liquid that's both wet and dry. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Confusing quotes by Lisa Yee
#63. Gus and I talk about girls a lot, but we can't figure them out. They are so confusing. Like, if you look at them, they get mad. And if you don't look at them, they get mad. And if you're nice to them, they think you like them. And if you're mean to them, they think you like them. And if you do like them, they think you hate them. #Quote by Lisa Yee
Confusing quotes by John Cena
#64. It's unrated, which means it's too confusing to possibly put a rating on. #Quote by John Cena
Confusing quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#65. As people move through life, passing from the hopeful ignorance of youth into sobering adulthood, they inevitably face an increasingly nagging question: Is this all there is? Childhood can be painful, adolescence confusing; most people, expect that in adulthood things will get better. During the early years of adulthood the future still looks promising. But inevitably the mirror' shows the first white hairs and confirms the fact that those few extra pounds are not about to leave; eyesight begins to fail and mysterious pains begin to shoot through the body...' Where's all that money I was to have made? Where are all of the good times I was going to have? #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Confusing quotes by Jarod Kintz
#66. I was joking about my clones to my family when my uncle Herman said, "Don't do that. Don't make fun of yourself and others at the same time." And he's right. It is confusing. Am I mocking myself, or joking at the expense of someone else? #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Confusing quotes by Rumi
#67. If you want what visible reality can give, you are an employee.
If you want the unseen world you are not living with your truth.
Both wishes are foolish, but you'll be forgiven for forgetting that what you really want is loves confusing joy. #Quote by Rumi
Confusing quotes by Roeau Vetrano
#68. We are on the same journey
same path
same confusing struggle
no longer venturing it alone
accepting one another
embracing one another. #Quote by Roeau Vetrano
Confusing quotes by Steven Spielberg
#69. There's a lot of confusion about the political ideologies of both parties [Democrats and Republicans] have switched 180 degrees in 150 years. It just too confusing. Everybody claiming Lincoln as their own. And everybody should claim Lincoln as their own, because he represents all of us, and what he did basically provided the opportunities that all of us are enjoying today. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Confusing quotes by Christopher Ryan
#70. Recognized as a way to build and maintain a network of mutually beneficial relationships, nonreproductive sex no longer requires special explanations. Homosexuality, for example, becomes far less confusing, in that it is, as E. O. Wilson has written, above all a form of bonding ... consistent with the greater part of heterosexual behavior as a device that cements relationships. #Quote by Christopher Ryan
Confusing quotes by Miranda Hart
#71. We said together, wistfully, 'Life, eh?' It says everything without having to say anything: that we all experience moments of joyful or painful reflection, sometimes alone, sometimes sharing laughs and tears with others; that we all know and appreciate that however wonderful and precious life is, it can equally be a terribly confusing and mysterious beast. 'Life, eh? #Quote by Miranda Hart
Confusing quotes by Nancy E. Turner
#72. Well, he perked right up and said, Five hundred dollars? Mrs. Elliot, I believe we can be of service to you after all.
I doubt it, I told him. I made this money with the sweat of my brow and the labor of my hands and I've got the rawhide to prove it. I don't inted to leave it with any man that thinks money is confusing. #Quote by Nancy E. Turner
Confusing quotes by Jamie McGuire
#74. You are the most confusing woman I've ever met. #Quote by Jamie McGuire
Confusing quotes by Nicholson Baker
#75. The job of the novel is to be true to the confusion, but not so confusing that you turn the reader off. #Quote by Nicholson Baker
Confusing quotes by Sally Rooney
#76. Afterward I lay on my side with A Critique of Postcolonial Reason propped half-open on the pillow beside me. Occasionally I lifted a finger to turn the page and allowed the heavy and confusing syntax to drift down through my eyes and into my brain like fluid. I'm bettering myself, I thought. I'm going to become so smart that no one will understand me. #Quote by Sally Rooney
Confusing quotes by David Levithan
#77. I used to think that when I got older, the world would make so much more sense. But you know what? The older I get, the more confusing it is to me. The more complicated it is. Harder. You'd think we'd be getting better at it. But there's just more and more chaos. The pieces - they're everywhere. And nobody knows what to do about it. I find myself grasping, Nick. You know that feeling? That feeling when you just want the right thing to fall into the right place, not only because it's right, but because it will mean that such a thing is still possible? I want to believe in that. #Quote by David Levithan
Confusing quotes by A.M. Jenkins
#78. I see what's going on," I said. "You're confusing beauty with this society's current idea of perfection of visual form. #Quote by A.M. Jenkins
Confusing quotes by Jennifer Pahlka
#79. You might not think of something like TurboTax as a civic venture, but that product took a confusing interface to a government process and made it simpler and easier to use for citizens. #Quote by Jennifer Pahlka
Confusing quotes by Arthur Golden
#80. It is confusing, because in this culture we really don't have anything that corresponds to geisha. #Quote by Arthur Golden
Confusing quotes by Laurie Faria Stolarz
#81. It's all so confusing."
"Only to you it is. Wes and I tend to see things a whole lot clearer than you do. And, as luck would have it, he just happens to be here with me, hiding out from his dad. So why don't you get your confused ass over here, too?"
"Why is he hiding out?"
"Because his dad paid Helga to come onto him."
"Helga the cleaning lady?"
"Believe it. That woman may be sixty years old and carry her teeth around in a Dixie cup, but apparently she still has game."
"To put it mildly. #Quote by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Confusing quotes by Casey Spooner
#82. If something was confusing or difficult, then it was a positive thing. Confusion is a positive. #Quote by Casey Spooner
Confusing quotes by Lemony Snicket
#83. It was confusing pretending to be completely different people, particularly because it had been so long since the Baudelaires were able to be the people they really were. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Confusing quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#84. We do ability grouping early on in childhood...if we look at young kids, in kindergarten and first grade, the teachers are confusing maturity with ability. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Confusing quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#85. Paradoxical thinking requires that we embrace a view of the world in which opposites are joined, so that we can see the world clearly and see it whole ... The result is a world more complex and confusing than the one made simple by either-or thought - but that simplicity is merely the dullness of death. When we think together we reclaim the life force in the world, in our students, in ourselves. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer
Confusing quotes by Harold Brodkey
#86. For the next two weeks, the world and all other issues would be omitted. We were two people alone in a hospital room. We allowed no visitors. We had two weeks of near-silence with each other and my increasing helplessness. I tended to tangle the IV and misplace the oxygen tube. As I started to say earlier, I could feel no sensible interest in the future. The moments became extraordinarily dimensionless - not without value but flat and a great deal emptier. When you learn you're fatally ill, time becomes very confusing, perhaps uninteresting, pedestrian. But my not caring if I lived or died hurt Ellen. And I was grateful that I could indulge my cowardice toward death in terms of living for her. #Quote by Harold Brodkey
Confusing quotes by Paolo Bacigalupi
#87. The things that have really gotten confusing to me is how you balance the desires of your publishers to produce things on a schedule, and people are always sort of giving you ideas on what you should follow up with or how you should proceed next and things like that. #Quote by Paolo Bacigalupi
Confusing quotes by Alice Walker
#88. This friendship among women is something Samuel often talks about. Because the women share a husband but the husband does not share their friendships, it makes Samuel uneasy. It is confusing, I suppose. And it is Samuel's duty as a Christian minister to preach the bible's directive of one husband and one wife. Samuel is confused because ti him, since the women are friends and will do anything for one another - not always, but more often than anyone from America would expect - and since they giggle and gossip and nurse each other's children, then they must be happy with things as they are. (Walker 2000: 141) #Quote by Alice Walker
Confusing quotes by Paul Tremblay
#89. So heaven was this vague, uneasy, almost cartoonish concept, a confusing cultural mash up of puffy clouds, harps, winged Angel's, Golden sunlight, a giant hand that may or may not belong to a giant man with a flowing white beard named God. #Quote by Paul Tremblay
Confusing quotes by Walter Hill
#90. I tend not to look back. It's confusing. #Quote by Walter Hill
Confusing quotes by Jarod Kintz
#91. Stairs, are they going up or are they going down? They're so confusing! If love were a physical thing, it would be stairs. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Confusing quotes by Austin Butler
#92. There is hardly anything more confusing than a really strong-willed woman and when you are surrounded by two of them in the midst of trying to save the world, it really adds to some drama! #Quote by Austin Butler
Confusing quotes by Eloisa James
#93. You're confusing desire and love,' she said, watching him. 'They are not the same.'
'I do love you. I feel near to murder at the idea of you marrying another man, and that's the truth of the matter.'
'Desire is bloody, perjured, full of blame.'
Ewan walked up the steps to her. 'Is that poetry?'
'I don't like the sound of it. There's something nasty about that poet.'
'It's Shakespeare,' Annabel said.
Ewan obviously dismissed Shakespeare as a lost cause. 'We would be happy together,' he said. #Quote by Eloisa James
Confusing quotes by Raymond S. Moore
#94. Parents should also question much of the contemporary emphasis on special materials and equipment for learning in a child's environment. A clutter of toys can be more confusing than satisfying to a child. On the other hand, natural situations, with opportunieties to explore, seldom overstimulate or trouble a small child. Furthermore, most children will find greater satisfaction and demonsstrate greater learning from things they make and do with their parents or other people than from elaborate toys or learning materials. And there is no substitute for solitude - in the sandpile, mud puddle, or play area - for a yound child to work out his own fantasies. Yet this privilege is often denied in our anxiety to institutionalize children. #Quote by Raymond S. Moore
Confusing quotes by Gregg Harper
#95. Trying to find my way around the Rayburn building is always a challenge. Combining my poor sense of direction with a confusing design is not good. #Quote by Gregg Harper
Confusing quotes by Cecily Anne Paterson
#96. Boys are confusing. Best friends, on the other hand are totally, completely reliable. #Quote by Cecily Anne Paterson
Confusing quotes by Suresh Ramaswamy
#97. The surface dynamics of a relationship are often times confusing. Therefore, it is useful to separate out structure and essence in a relationship to better understand the deeper truth. The essence of the relationship is the Pure Love that is present. It is internal and independent of conditions. The structure of the relationship is what the relationship looks like from the outside. #Quote by Suresh Ramaswamy
Confusing quotes by Felicia Day
#98. When we graduate from childhood into adulthood, we're thrown into this confusing, Cthulhu-like miasma of life, filled with social and career problems, all with branching choices and no correct answers. #Quote by Felicia Day
Confusing quotes by William Kent Krueger
#99. He was no stranger to brutal death. Both as sheriff and as a cop on Chicago's south side, he'd seen his share of dying. Murder, accident, overdose - it happened in many ways, but the end was the same. Something sad and confusing left behind. Only the shape of life, only the empty outline. #Quote by William Kent Krueger
Confusing quotes by Dave Chappelle
#100. The girl says "Oh uh-uh, wait a minute! Wait a minute! Just because I'm dressed this way does not make me a whore!" Which is true, Gentlemen, that is true. Just because they dress a certain way doesn't mean they are a certain way. Don't even forget it. But ladies, you must understand that is fucking confusing. It just is. Now that would be like me, Dave Chappelle, the comedian, walking down the street in a cop uniform. Somebody might run up on me saying, "Oh, thank God. Officer, help us! Come on. They're over here. Help us!" "Oh-hoh! Just because I'm dressed this way does not make me a police officer!" See what I mean? All right, ladies, fine. You are not a whore. But you are wearing a whore's uniform. #Quote by Dave Chappelle
Confusing quotes by Jennie Shortridge
#101. Last year a baby orca and its mother wandered too far upriver from the ocean; we saw the story in The Oregonian. They didn't know how to get back home. Pater said all the fuss from people and boaters and news helicopters was probably confusing them more. He didn't say he thought they'd never find their way back, but I know that's what he was thinking. In my mind, I like to think they submerged so no one could see them under all that deep blue, popping up again when they were safely out to sea. #Quote by Jennie Shortridge
Confusing quotes by Richard Lederer
#102. It is indeed acceptable practice to sometimes split an infinitive. If infinitive-splitting makes available just the shade of meaning you desire or if avoiding the separation creates a confusing ambiguity or patent artificiality, you are entitled to happily go ahead and split! #Quote by Richard Lederer
Confusing quotes by Lynsay Sands
#103. We're human. We have emotions and those are sticky and confusing and rarely logical so we do stupid things.' She shrugged, and turned off the car. 'Welcome to the human race. You'll make many more mistakes before your life is done. Accept it, deal with it, and move on. #Quote by Lynsay Sands
Confusing quotes by Wittgenstein Ludwig
#104. Haven't I made the elementary mistake of confusing one's thoughts with one's knowledge #Quote by Wittgenstein Ludwig
Confusing quotes by Clark Blaise
#105. India has in fact raced ahead, in ways that are more dazzling and more confusing than America is. #Quote by Clark Blaise
Confusing quotes by Alison Bechdel

Confusing quotes by Ian McKellen

Confusing quotes by Paul Thomas Anderson
#108. I've never been a fan of whimsical or confusing storytelling. #Quote by Paul Thomas Anderson
Confusing quotes by Stephen Beal
#109. In the late 60's I was enrolled at Occidental College majoring in philosophy and taking several studio art classes, but I dropped out. It was a very confusing time with the war in Vietnam and the social changes sweeping the nation. #Quote by Stephen Beal
Confusing quotes by Paul Tremblay
#110. I'm - I'm Marjorie, a fourteen-year-old girl, scared of everything, who doesn't know why she hears voices that tell her confusing things. And I try to be good and I try. Try not to listen to them.
Are you scared and confused like I am? I think everyone is secretly like me. #Quote by Paul Tremblay
Confusing quotes by Tina J. Richardson
#111. The World can feel like a strange and confusing place for an autistic person. Lights, sounds and smells are extremely intense and overwhelming sometimes. People also can be confusing and overwhelming to me. It can help me if you are consistent with what you say and do; please say what you mean. Also provide me with a safe, quiet place to recover when I'm really overwhelmed. Please speak quietly and calmly and give me time to de-stress. #Quote by Tina J. Richardson
Confusing quotes by Mary Roach
#112. A brain bank spokesman showed me around. Down the hall from the dissection room was the computer room. The spokesman referred to this as the "brains of the operation" which in any other operation would have been fine but in this case was a tad confusing.

At the end of the hall were the real brains. It wasn't quite what I imagined. I pictured whole intact brains floating in glass jars, but the brains were cut in half, one side being sliced and frozen, the other side sliced and stored in formaldehyde inside Rubbermaid and Freezet food savers. Somehow I'd expected more of Harvard, if not glass at least Tupperware. I wondered what the dorms looked like these days. #Quote by Mary Roach
Confusing quotes by Lewis Carroll
#113. "It's very good jam," said the Queen. "Well, I don't want any to-day, at any rate." "You couldn't have it if you did want it," the Queen said. "The rule is jam tomorrow and jam yesterday but never jam to-day." "It must come sometimes to "jam to-day,""Alice objected. "No it can't," said the Queen. "It's jam every other day; to-day isn't any other day, you know." "I don't understand you," said Alice. "It's dreadfully confusing." #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Confusing quotes by Thomas Mann
#114. He had a way of entering I shall never forget: Offering a casual greeting and sometimes not even taking off his hat and coat, he would walk straight to the piano, his face strained with concentration, as if this had been the real point of his having come, and then with a strong attack would sound knotted chords and, his eyebrows raised high as he emphasized each modulating note, try out the preparations and resolutions he might have been considering on his way there. But this rush for the piano also had about it something of a yearning to find some hold, some shelter, as if the room and those filling it frightened him and he were seeking refuge there
and in himself as well, really
from the confusing and alien world into which he had strayed. #Quote by Thomas Mann
Confusing quotes by Joost Meerloo
#115. Confusing a targeted audience is one of the necessary ingredients for effective mind control. #Quote by Joost Meerloo
Confusing quotes by Piper Perabo
#116. Well, love is confusing at all ages, but especially when you're 17. #Quote by Piper Perabo
Confusing quotes by Frank Robinson
#117. I don't see why you reporters keep confusing Brooks (Robinson) and me. Can't you see that we wear different numbers. #Quote by Frank Robinson
Confusing quotes by David Levithan
#118. Tikkun olam."

Exactly. Basically, it says that the world has been broken into pieces. All this chaos, all this discord. And our job - everyone's job - is to try to put the pieces back together. To make things whole again."

And you believe that?"

I guess I do. I mean, I don't know how the world broke. And I don't know if there's a God who can help us fix it. But the fact that the world is broken - I absolutely believe that. Just look around us. Every minute - every single second - there are a million things you could be thinking about. A million things you could be worrying about. Our world - don't you feel we're becoming more and more fragmented? I used to think that when I got older, the world would make so much more sense. But you know what? The older I get, the more confusing it is to me. The more complicated it is. Harder. You'd think we'd be getting better at it. But there's just more and more chaos. The pieces - they're everywhere. And nobody knows what to do about it. I find myself grasping, Nick. You know that feeling? That feeling when you just want the right thing to fall into the right place, not only because it's right, but because it will mean that such a thing is still possible? I want to believe in that."

Do you really think it's getting worse? I mean, aren't we better off than we were twenty years ago? Or a hundred?"

We're better off. But I don't know if the world's better off. I don't know if the two are #Quote by David Levithan
Confusing quotes by Steve Volk
#119. We are, as a species, neurologically uncomfortable with ambiguity. Imaging studies of the human brain in action demonstrate that the fussy little onboard computers in our skulls send out anxiety messages when confronted by conflicting or confusing information. As a consequence, we have a natural, internal impetus to settle on an interpretation that removes any perceived conflict. #Quote by Steve Volk
Confusing quotes by Cassandra Clare
#120. Don't you think 'Mark is kind of a weird name for a Shadowhunter?" Julian was saying as Emma approached. "I mean, if you really think about it. It's confusing. 'Put a Mark on me, Mark. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Confusing quotes by Heather Lyons
#121. Love isn't always clean and pretty--sometimes it's messy, cruel, and confusing. And sometimes, it doesn't turn out the way you want it to. But then, the beauty of love is that it's very strong, and when it's real, it's worth it. #Quote by Heather Lyons
Confusing quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#122. The fact that human beings are now the only animals left on Earth, I confess, seems a confusing sort of victory. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Confusing quotes by John Irving
#123. Dr. Gingrich, who was increasingly fascinated with the leaps of Mrs. Goodhall's mind, was still marveling over the confusing image of a nonpracticing homosexual; it struck him as a brilliant accusation to make of anyone who was slightly (or hugely) different. #Quote by John Irving
Confusing quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#124. The truth is that no one who hasn't actually experienced the senseless chaos and violence of combat can possibly understand it, but those who have and who try to explain it to the rest of us are offering us a precious gift: a part of their soul that's been scorched in the flames of Hell. It's a little like trying to describe music to the deaf or color to the blind ... to make the irrational somewhat sensible, which is always confusing and frustrating, and ultimately futile. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Confusing quotes by Pauline Reage

Confusing quotes by Rachel Cohn
#126. Friendship is love as much as any romance. And like any love, it's difficult and treacherous and confusing. But in the moment when your knees touch, there's nothing else you could ever want. #Quote by Rachel Cohn
Confusing quotes by David Foster Wallace
#127. Uniform Convergence & Associated Aracana item (d) for exceptional points, which again please recall can also be called 'discontinuities'. (N.B.: Some math classes also use singularity to mean exceptional point, which is both confusing and intriguing since the term also refers to Black Holes, which in a sense is what discontinuities are.) #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Confusing quotes by Kathryn Schulz
#128. Wrongness always seems to come at us from left field - that is, from outside ourselves. But the reality could hardly be more different. Error is the ultimate inside job. Yes, the world can be profoundly confusing; and yes, other people can mislead or deceive you. In the end, though, nobody but you can choose to believe your own beliefs. #Quote by Kathryn Schulz
Confusing quotes by Michael Dirda
#129. The only kind of notebook I actively dislike is the steno pad, entirely because of that vertical line down the middle of the page. I presume it has some arcane secretarial use, but to me, it's both ugly and confusing. #Quote by Michael Dirda
Confusing quotes by W. Edwards Deming
#130. Management by results is confusing special causes with common causes. #Quote by W. Edwards Deming
Confusing quotes by Alexandra Kleeman
#131. She felt sad, but she hadn't cried all day. She thought that crying would actually be a good thing right now. It seemed normal to react. Whoever Martin had been, he had probably been a normal person. He was probably having a normal reaction right now, and she had caused it. She felt bad for confusing him. She thought it might be fair to cry for him. But it wasn't until she thought of the mother cows in the pasture the day after the weaning, wandering around singly in the naked sunshine, still trying to call out in their hoarse, broken voices for the young ones that were still missing, that she was finally able to make herself cry - a little bit for all of the calves, but mostly for herself. #Quote by Alexandra Kleeman
Confusing quotes by Jenny Lawson
#132. I wish someone had told me this simple but confusing truth: Even when everything's going your way you can still be sad. Or anxious. Or uncomfortably numb. Because you can't always control your brain or your emotions even when things are perfect. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Confusing quotes by Daniel Goleman
#133. Sheree Conrad and Michael Milburn bring a much-needed sanity to that confusing and unruly terrain, our sexual lives/ #Quote by Daniel Goleman

Confusing quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#135. I've heard the Prior here talk about Gabriel,' said Richard serenely. 'He seemed at times to be confusing him with the Pope. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Confusing quotes by Lydia Kelly
#136. My feelings for Kaden, although confusing and admittedly self destructive, ran deeper than physical appearances. All the pain he caused me, all the terror I lived with, was nothing compared to the anxiety of not knowing what would happen if I were to find myself without him. #Quote by Lydia Kelly
Confusing quotes by Tyne Daly
#137. I am pretty sure that all young human beings have, at one time or another in their growing-up, been actors. They have used their imaginations to carry them away from painful or confusing situations ... have imagined themselves to be more powerful or beautiful or brave or loving than they are. #Quote by Tyne Daly
Confusing quotes by Alain De Botton
#138. At the heart of sulk lies a confusing mixture of intense anger and an equally intense desire not to communicate what one is angry about. The sulker both desperately needs the other person to understand and yet remains utterly committed to doing nothing to help them do so. The very need to explain forms the kernel of the insult: if the partner requires an explanation, he or she is clearly not worth of one. We should add that it is a privilege to be the recipient of a sulk: it means the other person respects and trusts us enough to think we should understand their unspoken hurt. It is one of the odder gifts of love. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Confusing quotes by Erin O'Connor
#139. How awful to be a perfect beauty! How confusing! God. Can you imagine? #Quote by Erin O'Connor
Confusing quotes by Charles De Lint
#140. Yes, no. I don't know. It's all so confusing. I'm just a kid."
Abuelo smiled. "You kept saying that while you told me your story, but what does it mean?"
"That I'm too young to have to be making decisions like this."
"You're never too young to do the right thing," Abuelo said. #Quote by Charles De Lint
Confusing quotes by Robert Greene
#141. The people around you are generally mysterious. You are never quite sure about their intentions. They present an appearance that is often deceptive - their manipulative actions don't match their lofty words or promises. All of this can prove confusing. Seeing people as they are, instead of what you think they should be, would mean having a greater sense of their motives. #Quote by Robert Greene
Confusing quotes by Don DeLillo
#142. How could there be a north below a south? Is this what I found confusing? #Quote by Don DeLillo
Confusing quotes by Brian Molko
#143. Schizophrenic is the best word - I change from day to day. I can be quite confusing. Indecisive, workaholic, and tired today. #Quote by Brian Molko
Confusing quotes by Emma Watson
#144. I find the whole concept of being 'sexy' embarrassing and confusing. If I do a photo-shoot, people desperately want to change me - dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there's the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that's not me. #Quote by Emma Watson
Confusing quotes by Patricia A. McKillip
#145. The message, which one fall or another of the coin would eventually give him, was how to get himself out of his chamber and into Nepenthe's, so that he could tell her why he had not come to tell her why he had not come. #Quote by Patricia A. McKillip
Confusing quotes by Sally  Thorne
#146. Joshua Templeman is going to spray his coffee out his nose when I walk in. I don't know why I want him to - but I do.

Confusing quotes by Johan Huizinga
#147. People accept a representation in which the elements of wish and fantasy are purposely included but which nevertheless proclaims to represent "the past" and to serve as a guide-rule for life, thereby hopelessly confusing the spheres of knowledge and will. #Quote by Johan Huizinga
Confusing quotes by Erlend Loe
#148. I know a helluva lot.
I'm not the only one who knows these things.
Many people know more than I do. That's fortunately not my problem.
My problem is what I am supposed to use it for.
What do I do with it?
It's confusing. #Quote by Erlend Loe
Confusing quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#149. As for the doctor's mind, though intelligent and certainly well-meaning, it was a jumble of intellectual artifacts even more confusing than all the gadgets, appliances, and coneniences that filled the ship. These latter Shevek found entertaining; everything was so lavish, stylish, and inventive; but the furniture of Kimoe's intellect he did not find so comfortable. Kimoe's ideas never seemed to be able to go in a straight line; they had to walk around this and avoid that. There were walls around all his thoughts, and he seemed utterly unaware of them, though he was perpetually hiding behind them. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Confusing quotes by Mark Lawrence
#150. Confusing the author and the character seems to be a popular and rather unsophisticated reaction to books. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Confusing quotes by David Foster Wallace
#151. Under fun's new administration, writing fiction becomes a way to go deep inside yourself and illuminate precisely the stuff you don't want to see or let anyone else see, and this stuff usually turns out (paradoxically) to be precisely the stuff all writers and readers share and respond to, feel. Fiction becomes a weird way to countenance yourself and to tell the truth instead of being a way to escape yourself or to present yourself in a way you figure you will be maximally likable. This process is complicated and confusing and scary, and also hard work, but it turns out to be the best fun there is.
The fact that you can now sustain the fun of writing only by confronting the very same unfun parts of yourself you'd first used writing to avoid or disguise is another paradox, but this one isn't any kind of bind at all. What it is is a gift, a kind of miracle, and compared to it the reward of strangers' affection is as dust, lint. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Confusing quotes by Ricki Lake
#152. Being fat worked, and I think that was what was confusing for me for a long time in my career. #Quote by Ricki Lake
Confusing quotes by Tracey Garvis Graves
#153. I'd spent the preceding twenty days swirling in a paralyzing vortex of loud sounds and bad smells, overwhelming stimuli, and confusing social norms, and I'd had just about all I could take. #Quote by Tracey Garvis Graves
Confusing quotes by Anne Hoppus
#154. As Mark and Tom continued to practice together, they both knew they wanted to pursue the band as something more than just a way to kill a summer's night. And perhaps take their relationship itself to the next level, to finally become more than just friends...The feelings were there, it was just all so confusing... #Quote by Anne Hoppus
Confusing quotes by Ralph Ellison
#155. I felt that even when they were polite they hardly saw me, that they would have begged the pardon of Jack the Bear, never glancing his way if the bear happened to be walking along minding his business. It was confusing. I did not know if it was desirable or undesirable ... #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Confusing quotes by Ramani Durvasula
#156. Having a narcissistic parent is an early manifestation of a phenomenon termed by some as "co-narcissism." Alan Rappoport describes this as unconsciously adapting to and supporting the narcissistic patterns of another person. He argues that this pattern starts in childhood, with the child having to adjust and calibrate to the narcissistic parent.
Narcissistic parents are not tuned into their children, and the narcissistic parent largely views the child as an object with which to satisfy his or her needs. Narcissistic parents will be overly indulgent and intrusive about some things and detached and uninterested in others. Children in these situations often believe life is unpredictable and strive hard to please "unpleasable" and distracted parents. If you grow up like this, you learn that you are valued for what you did, but only if it was aligned with your parent's wants and needs. It can be a confusing way to grow up and also the perfect set-up for accepting narcissistic behavior as "normal" and then tolerating it from a partner or in other close relationships. #Quote by Ramani Durvasula
Confusing quotes by Jeff Goins
#157. If you are going to find work worth doing - a vocation to fulfill and challenge you - you will have to encounter a reality bigger than yourself. It may not be what others say it should be or what you think, but it will come if you are looking for it ... At times, the work you're called to do will be hard and confusing, but if you press in, you will see the purpose behind the pain. You will see how the whole experience is causing you to grow. And you will thank God for the whole journey. #Quote by Jeff Goins
Confusing quotes by Sarah Dessen
#158. I wasn't very happy in high school: it was a confusing and sort of sad time for me. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Confusing quotes by Katja Millay
#159. And that's the most confusing part - figuring out what's true. #Quote by Katja Millay
Confusing quotes by Sheena Iyengar
#160. How did people end up confusing the fear of falling to their death on the jagged rocks below with the feeling of being struck by Cupid's arrow? #Quote by Sheena Iyengar
Confusing quotes by Michael Holley
#161. You'd have a list of notes of things that the player did and they'd want you to do it that way in practice. So they'd say, 'He's a guy who bites really hard on play action, so every time you see this play, do it that way. You want to give the quarterback a good look. You're not reading it as you, you're reading it as them. Play how they play and not how you play.' Now, you've got to learn all your stuff, too, because you want to be on the team. So you're watching film of you being him and you being you."

- Matt Chatham #Quote by Michael Holley
Confusing quotes by Donald Barthelme

Why don't you write tragedy?


I'm fated to deal in mixtures, slumgullions, which preclude tragedy, which require a pure line. It's a habit of mind, a perversity. Tom Hess used to tell a story, maybe from Lewis Carroll, I don't remember, about an enraged mob storming the palace shouting "More taxes! Less bread!" As soon as I hear a proposition I immediately consider its opposite. A double-minded man - makes for mixtures.


Apparently the Yiddish theater, to which Kafka was very addicted, includes as a typical bit of comedy two clowns, more or less identical, who appear even in sad scenes - the parting of two lovers, for instance - and behave comically as the audience is weeping. This shows up especially in The Castle.


The assistants.


And the audience doesn't know what to do.


The confusing signals, the impurity of the signal, gives you verisimilitude. As when you attend a funeral and notice, against your will, that it's being poorly done. [...] I think of the line from the German writer Heimito von Doderer: "At first you break windows. Then you become a window yourself. #Quote by Donald Barthelme
Confusing quotes by Caroline Corr
#163. I mean, y'know, platinum is different in every country, which can be confusing. #Quote by Caroline Corr
Confusing quotes by Michael DeLong
#164. Every war and conflict that the United States enters has its own ROE [rules of engagement]. Contrary to what most people think, the U.S. military does not have a complete license to kill, even in wartime. We are not a barbaric state, and we do not enter any war with the intention of unilaterally killing anything in our path. We go out of our way to spare civilian lives, to keep those who are not in the war out of it
sometimes even at the expense of risking our own soldiers' safety. We do this by creating strict rules to which our soldies adhere. These rules govern when they can fire, when they cannot; what type of force they can use, what type they cannot; what they can do in particular situations, and what they cannot. The reason for this is that battles can become very confusing very quickly, and a common soldier needs simple rules to guide him, to know when he is or is not allowed to kill
and who is and is not the enemy. #Quote by Michael DeLong
Confusing quotes by Julie Buxbaum
#165. Do you ever think about how your name doesn't fit you? I mean, you're usually Kit in my head, but really I think your name should have a Z in it, because you're confusing and zigzagged and pop up in surprising places--like my lunch table and these bleachers. I really didn't think you'd come--and maybe also the neighbor eight, because... never mind, and the letter S too. It's my favorite. S. So yeah, Z8S-139. Or 139-Z8S. That's how I think of you sometimes, in my head," I say.

"139-Z8S?" I ask. "Really?"
"Or if you prefer, I can call you: Z8S-139. Or Z8 for short. #Quote by Julie Buxbaum
Confusing quotes by James Martin
#166. Jesus must make decisions on his own, choices that probably seem confusing, and, in this case, offensive to those around him. This is often true of all of us when we make truly free decisions. #Quote by James Martin
Confusing quotes by Barbara Vine
#167. A disturbing experience it had been, exciting and confusing. #Quote by Barbara Vine
Confusing quotes by Laozi
#168. Distortion upon distortion: ... the more one uses the mind, the more confused one becomes. #Quote by Laozi
Confusing quotes by Curtis Sittenfeld
#169. At that time in my life, no conclusion was a bad conclusion. Something ended, and you stopped wishing and worrying. You could consider your mistakes, and you might be embarrassed by them, but the box was sealed, the door was shut, you were no longer immersed in the confusing middle. #Quote by Curtis Sittenfeld
Confusing quotes by Thomas Mullen
#170. The right thing was confusing, and difficult, and sometimes Jason wondered if it was in fact a nonexistent ideal, like heaven or the American dream. There was no right thing. You did what you did for whatever reasons occurred to you at the time, depending on whichever emotion was running thickest in your blood. Your desire and fear and adrenaline and longing. You made your choice and came up with the reasons later. #Quote by Thomas Mullen
Confusing quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#171. When we choose to stay down, we are in reality confusing wisdom with cowardice. When we choose to stand back up, we are using wisdom to overcome cowardice. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Confusing quotes by Jack Welch
#172. Willingness to change is a strength, even if it means plunging part of the company into total confusion for a while. #Quote by Jack Welch
Confusing quotes by Richard Corliss
#173. 'Noah' is about a man whose mission is to obliterate Earth's past and godfather its future. Replacing the word 'God' with 'Creator' and taking other scriptural liberties, the movie risks confusing those who don't take the Bible literally and alienating those who do. #Quote by Richard Corliss
Confusing quotes by Leslie Ludy
#174. Sometimes in a relationship, we can be so caught up in our feelings for the other person that we squeeze God into the background. It becomes a confusing, emotional mess and we wonder why God isn't giving us more direction, when all the while He is there waiting to be allowed back into first place in our hearts. Only when He is truly in first place are we ready for a God-written love story. #Quote by Leslie Ludy
Confusing quotes by Thomas Szasz
#175. When the psychiatrist approves of a person's actions, he judges that person to have acted with "free choice"; when he disapproves,he judges him to have acted without "free choice." It is small wonder that people find "free choice" a confusing idea: "free choice" appears to refer to what the person being judged (often called the "patient") does, whereas it is actually what the person making the judgment (often a psychiatrist or other mental health worker) thinks. #Quote by Thomas Szasz
Confusing quotes by Rohinton Mistry
#176. ... God is a giant quiltmaker. With an infinite variety of designs. And the quilt is grown so big and confusing, the pattern is impossible to see, the squares and diamonds and triangles don't fit well together anymore, it's all become meaningless. So He has abandoned it. #Quote by Rohinton Mistry
Confusing quotes by Robert Koch
#177. However, on many occasions, I examined normal blood and normal tissues and there was no possibility of overlooking bacteria or confusing them with granular masses of equal size. I never found organisms. Thus, I conclude that bacteria do not occur in healthy human or animal tissues. #Quote by Robert Koch
Confusing quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#178. There was a moment of stillness before something in him seemed to snap. she pounced on her with a sort of tigerish delight, and clamped his mouth over hers. She squeaked in surprise, wriggling in his hold, but his arms clamped around her easily, his muscles as solid as oak. He kissed her possessively, almost roughly at first, gentling by voluptuous degrees. Her body surrendered without giving her brain a chance to object, applying itself eagerly to every available inch of him. The luxurious male heat and hardness of him satisfied a wrenching hunger she hadn't been aware of until now. It also gave her the close-but-not-close-enough feeling she remembered from before. Oh, how confusing this was, this maddening need to crawl inside his clothes, practically inside his skin.
She let her fingertips wander over his cheeks and jaw, the neat shape of his ears, the taut smoothness of his neck. When he offered no objection, she sank her fingers into his thick, vibrant hair and sighed in satisfaction. He searched for her tongue, teased and stroked intimately until her heart pounded in a tumult of longing, and a sweet, empty ache spread all through her. Dimly aware that she was going to lose control, that she was on the verge of swooning, or assaulting him again, she managed to break the kiss and turn her face away with a gasp.
"Don't," she said weakly.
His lips grazed along her jawline, his breath rushing unsteadily against her skin. "Why? Are you still worried about Austr #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Confusing quotes by Jamie Dornan
#179. It's funny when you know you're playing two characters and you're aware of how you have to play each one into your performance of the other. You're constantly at the back of your mind thinking and it all gets a bit confusing. #Quote by Jamie Dornan
Confusing quotes by Rowan Williams
#180. Let's cut to the chase, the sharia controversy. I don't think I, or my colleagues, predicted just how enormous the reaction would be. I failed to find the right words. I succeeded in confusing people. I've made mistakes - that's probably one of them. #Quote by Rowan Williams
Confusing quotes by Ilchi Lee
#181. We are able to find true strength and rest only inside of ourselves. Our very body is a sanctuary and a generator of energy. When things are hard and confusing, go inside. the place can provide you with prefect rest. #Quote by Ilchi Lee
Confusing quotes by David Letterman
#182. But down in Florida in the early voting, there were computer glitches, confusing ballots, long lines and chaos. And when President Bush heard about this, he said, 'Mission accomplished!' #Quote by David Letterman
Confusing quotes by Lisa Edelstein
#183. What does it mean to a successful woman today? Does it mean you have to be a mother? If you are a mother, does it mean you have to be a mother with a husband? If you don't have a husband, what is the role that the man plays? I think there are a lot of confusing things that we're all really still sorting out. #Quote by Lisa Edelstein
Confusing quotes by Enya
#184. I think they find it - they find me quite confusing, because - they know the music, but they don't know anything about me ... because I keep a very private lifestyle so they end up ... making up stories as such. But I don't really concern myself too much about them. #Quote by Enya
Confusing quotes by Cora Carmack
#185. He stepped away from me to talk, and I leaned heavily against the wall beside his door. Clearly, I was not meant to have sex. This was God telling me that I was meant to be a nun. Get thee to a nunnery, and all that crap. I was so delirious I was confusing God and Shakespeare. #Quote by Cora Carmack
Confusing quotes by Wallace Stevens
#186. I can't make head or tail of Life. Love is a fine thing, Art is a fine thing, Nature is a fine thing; but the average human mind and spirit are confusing beyond measure. Sometimes I think that all our learning is the little learning of the maxim. To laugh at a Roman awe-stricken in a sacred grove is to laugh at something today. #Quote by Wallace Stevens
Confusing quotes by A.M. Homes
#187. Alice, I hand you her name gently, suggesting that if you hold it, carefully as I do, pressed close to the heart, you might at the end of this understand how confusing the beating of two such similar hearts can be and how one finally had to stop. #Quote by A.M. Homes
Confusing quotes by Greg Dybec
#188. Life (and especially my life) is awkward and confusing and full of bad sex and spilled coffee, and those are the memories we shouldn't just throw a pretty filter over. When we neglect those imperfect moments, we miss a chance for real growth. #Quote by Greg Dybec
Confusing quotes by Jamie Ford
#189. Because the uncomfortable truth is that no one is all bad, or all good. Not mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, or husbands and wives. Life would be much easier if that were the case. Instead, everyone - Charlotte, Willow, Mr. Rigg, even Sister Briganti - was a confusing mixture of love and hate, joy and sorrow, longing and forgetting, misguided truth and painful deception. #Quote by Jamie Ford
Confusing quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#190. The wisdom of the years is confusing. Only the wisdom of eternity is edifying. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Confusing quotes by Victoria Erickson
#191. The greatest gift anyone could give anyone is for the other to feel worthy, adored and more than enough for all that they are.
This is a gentle reminder that the people you surround yourself with in every direction should feel both uplifting and safe to your mind and heart.
Not confusing, not draining, not controlling, not vague, not calculating, not unreliable, not cold, not dismissive, and not manipulative.
Don't mess around with the energy you take into your body and being, work wise, friendship wise, and relationship wise.
Life is too short and delicate for these damaging things.
It's really that simple. #Quote by Victoria Erickson
Confusing quotes by Gloria Steinem
#192. [On the Internet and activism:] The danger of the Internet is cocooning with the like-minded online - of sending an email or twitter and confusing that with action - while the real corporate and military and government centers of power go right on. In a way, the highest purpose of the Internet is to bring us together for empathy and action. After all, the reflector cells and empathy-producing chemicals in our brains only work when we're physically together with all five senses. You can't raise a baby online. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Confusing quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#193. I don't have a gun and I don't have even one wife and my sentences tend to go on and on and on, with all this syntax in them. Ernest Hemingway would have died rather than have syntax. Or semicolons. I use a whole lot of half-assed semicolons; there was one of them just now; that was a semicolon after "semicolons," and another one after "now."

And another thing. Ernest Hemingway would have died rather than get old. And he did. He shot himself. A short sentence. Anything rather than a long sentence, a life sentence. Death sentences are short and very, very manly. Life sentences aren't. They go on and on, all full of syntax and qualifying clauses and confusing references and getting old. And that brings up the real proof of what a mess I have made of being a man: I am not even young. Just about the time they finally started inventing women, I started getting old. And I went right on doing it. Shamelessly. I have allowed myself to get old and haven't done one single thing about it, with a gun or anything. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Confusing quotes by Susan Wiggs
#194. We often destroy the world's real wealth to create an illusion of wealth, confusing symbol and substance. #Quote by Susan Wiggs
Confusing quotes by Louis Navellier
#195. There's 4,000-plus stocks out there, and sometimes it gets a little confusing. And we like them to start with the portfolio grader, but if they'd like to see how I use the system and pick stocks - we offer that as well. #Quote by Louis Navellier
Confusing quotes by David Letterman
#196. The big debate right now is if Saddam is alive or dead. He's dead, then he's alive, then dead, then alive. It's just confusing. Today they showed videotape, and Saddam was speaking at his own funeral. #Quote by David Letterman
Confusing quotes by Jay Leno
#197. Scientists in Australia are working on making biodegradable car parts out of hemp. This might get confusing. When someone says, roll up the window, they might mean, roll up the window! #Quote by Jay Leno
Confusing quotes by P.D. James
#198. Beauty is intellectually confusing; it sabotages common sense. #Quote by P.D. James
Confusing quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#199. God will give us strength and boldness to stand firm for His truth as long we come together as one against this dark and confusing world we live in. #Quote by Euginia Herlihy
Confusing quotes by Clint Eastwood
#200. It's a very confusing era that we're in. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
