Could Have Should Have quotes by Christina Dodd
#1. The more I know you, the more I wonder who you are." He counted off her qualities on his fingers. "You have the accent of a lady. You dress like a peasant. You shoot like a marksman. You view the world cynically, yet you venerate Miss Victorine. Your face and body would be the envy of a young goddess, yet you sport an air of innocence. And that innocence hides a criminal mind and the cheek to pull off the most outrageous of felonies."
"So I'm Athena, the goddess of war."
"Definitely not Diana, the goddess of virginity."
As the last shot hit home, he saw Amy's mask slip. Blood rushed to her face. She bit her lip and looked toward the stairs as if only now realizing she could have - should have - left this whole discussion behind.
He laughed softly, triumphantly. "Or perhaps I'm mistaken. Perhaps you have more in common with Diana than I thought."
"Pray remember, sir, that Diana was also the goddess of the hunt." Amy leaned across the table, intent on making her point - but the blush still played across her cheeks. "She carried a bow and arrow, and she always bagged her quarry. Have a look at the bullet hole in the rock behind you and remember my skill and my cynicism. For we do know things about each other. I know that if you escape, you'll make sure I'm hung from a gibbet. You know that if I catch you escaping, I'll shoot you through the heart. Remember that as you cast longing glances toward the window." With a flourish, she picked up the breakfast t #Quote by Christina Dodd
Could Have Should Have quotes by Steven Furtick
#2. Would have. Could have. Should have. This is the language of condemnation underscored by the passivity of regret. It's a dead language. The thing is, you can't un-sin. You can only repent. #Quote by Steven Furtick
Could Have Should Have quotes by Kathryn Holmes
#3. She remembers talking to God a lot right after everything happened with Luke. She remembers crying and asking why, over and over. Asking for help, for strength, for understanding. Apologizing for what she did wrong. Talking through everything she could have, should have done differently. Begging for the torment to stop.
She remembers belief and trust slowly turning sour. Still, she kept talking to God out of habit. And because she didn't have anyone else to talk to. At night, in the dark sanctuary of her bedroom, alone, she could say the things she'd been keeping quiet. But she stopped expecting an answer. Stopped hoping for one.
After a while, God felt as distant, as uncaring, as everyone else.
And her prayers faded away. #Quote by Kathryn Holmes
Could Have Should Have quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#4. In order to be able to set a limit to thought, we should have to find both sides of the limit thinkable (i.e. we should have to be able to think what cannot be thought). #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Could Have Should Have quotes by Michael K. Williams
#5. I am the epitome of the underdog. By societies standards I should have been dead a long time ago, and I was nobody's gangster, I wasn't a thug, I wasn't selling drugs on the corner - I was scared of that. #Quote by Michael K. Williams
Could Have Should Have quotes by John Wycliffe
#6. The laity ought to understand the faith, and since the doctrines of our faith are in the Scriptures, believers should have the Scriptures in a language familiar to the people, and to this end the Holy Ghost endued them with knowledge of all tongues. #Quote by John Wycliffe
Could Have Should Have quotes by Karen Hawkins
#7. I'm surprised a person with your experience in telling elaborate fables should have difficulty in thinking up such a simple tale, but I suppose it's a different issue when you have to think quickly rather than spend time thoroughly developing your story."
"I'm sure that's it," she replied blithely, cutting her bacon into small bits."I'm also sure that my skills will grow over time. I just need to practice, practice, practice. Did I ever tell you about the dragon I owned when I was a child? #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Could Have Should Have quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#8. The Voice of Christ: My child, this is the disposition which you should have if you wish to walk with Me. You should be as ready to suffer as to enjoy. You should as willingly be destitute and poor as rich and satisfied. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Could Have Should Have quotes by Joy McCullough
#9. I take a length of cloth and hold it to my head - a wedding veil. I do not regret the days of make-believe, but for every time I played at bride I should have played at goddess, river, warrior queen #Quote by Joy McCullough
Could Have Should Have quotes by Jimmy Webb
#10. Even if chords are simple, they should rub. They should have dissonances in them. I've always used a lot of alternate bass lines, suspensions, widely spaced voicings. Dfferent textures to get very warm chords. Sometimes you're setting up strange chords by placing a chord in front of it that's going to set it off like a diamond in a gold band. It's not just finding interesting chords, it's how you sequence them, like stringing together pearls on a string ... Interesting chords will compel interesting melodies. It's very hard to write a boring melody to an interesting chord sequence. #Quote by Jimmy Webb
Could Have Should Have quotes by Mikhail Baryshnikov
#11. No dancer can watch Fred Astaire and not know that we all should have been in another business. #Quote by Mikhail Baryshnikov
Could Have Should Have quotes by Tessa Bailey
#12. Somehow she'd ended up in bed with the man mothers warn their daughters to stay away from. The kind of man fathers go after with a shotgun, their sobbing daughters trailing behind them in a wedding dress. She should have stayed away, because now that she knew what all the fuss was about, she would never be satisfied with anything less. He'd blindsided her, ruined her, and addicted her in one single evening. #Quote by Tessa Bailey
Could Have Should Have quotes by Albert Camus
#13. But it's not easy. I've been thinking it over for years. While we loved each other we didn't need words to make ourselves understood. But people don't love forever. A time came when I should have found the words to keep her with me, only I couldn't. #Quote by Albert Camus
Could Have Should Have quotes by Rory Stewart
#14. Democracy matters because it reflects an idea of equality and an idea of liberty. It reflects an idea of dignity, the dignity of the individual, the idea that each individual should have an equal vote, an equal say, in the formation of their government. #Quote by Rory Stewart
Could Have Should Have quotes by Thanhha Lai
#15. Whoever invented English
should have learned
to spell. #Quote by Thanhha Lai

Could Have Should Have quotes by Anonymous
#19. Before marriage she thought herself in love; but the happiness that should have followed this love not having come, she must, she thought, have been mistaken. And Emma tried to find out what one meant exactly in life by the words felicity, passion, rapture, that had seemed to her so beautiful in books. #Quote by Anonymous
Could Have Should Have quotes by Lauren F. Winner
#20. But that is how the clues God leaves sometimes work. Sometimes nothing comes of them. Sometimes, as in a great novel, you cannot see until you get to the end that God was leaving clues for you all along. Sometimes you wonder, how did I miss it? Surely any idiot should have been able to see from the second chapter that it was Miss Scarlet in the conservatory with the rope. #Quote by Lauren F. Winner
Could Have Should Have quotes by Washington Irving
#21. On mounting a rising ground, which brought the figure of his fellow-traveller in relief against the sky, gigantic in height, and muffled in a cloak, Ichabod was horror-struck on perceiving that he was headless!--but his horror was still more increased on observing that the head, which should have rested on his shoulders, was carried before him on the pommel of his saddle! #Quote by Washington Irving
Could Have Should Have quotes by James Patterson
Could Have Should Have quotes by Bernardine Evaristo
#23. So Bibi had been born a man and was now a woman, Megan had wondered, daren't ask, she might bite her head off
And Megan was a woman who wondered if she should have been born a man, who was attracted to a woman who'd once been a man, who was now saying gender was full of misguided expectations anyway, even though she had herself transitioned from male to female
This was such head fuckery #Quote by Bernardine Evaristo
Could Have Should Have quotes by Heidi Montag

Could Have Should Have quotes by E. Nesbit
#27. So he caught her in his arms and kissed her, and they were very happy, and told each other what a beautiful world it was, and how wonderful it was that they should have found each other, seeing that the world is not only beautiful but rather large. #Quote by E. Nesbit
Could Have Should Have quotes by Pyotr Kropotkin
#28. Fine sermons have been preached on the text that those who have should share with those who
have not, but he who would act out this principle is speedily informed that these beautiful sentiments
are all very well in poetry, but not in practice. "To lie is to degrade and besmirch oneself," we say, and
yet all civilized life becomes one huge lie. We accustom ourselves and our children to hypocrisy, to the
practice of a double-faced morality. And since the brain is ill at ease among lies, we cheat ourselves
with sophistry. Hypocrisy and sophistry become the second nature of the civilized man.
But a society cannot live thus; it must return to truth or cease to exist. #Quote by Pyotr Kropotkin
Could Have Should Have quotes by Jenny Slate
#29. I was born bucking the idea that I should have to be anywhere that I don't like or talk to people who make me feel dead or trapped. #Quote by Jenny Slate
Could Have Should Have quotes by Gayle Forman
#30. Teddy is never going to graduate from T-ball to baseball. He's never going to grow a mustache. Never going to get into a fistfight or shoot a deer or kiss a girl or have sex or fall in love or get married or father his own curly-haired child. I'm only ten years older than him, but it's like I've already had so much more life. It is unfair, If one of us should have been left behind, if one of us should have been given the opportunity for more life, it should be him. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Could Have Should Have quotes by Zaha Hadid
#31. I don't think that everybody in the planet should have a child. I've never had the desire I should have a kid. #Quote by Zaha Hadid
Could Have Should Have quotes by Jenny Han
#32. The perfect chocolate chip cookie," I intone, "should have three rings. The center should be soft and a little gooey. The middle ring should be chewy. And the outer ring should be crispy."
"I can't hear her give this speech again," Kitty says to Peter. "I just can't."
"Be patient," he says, squeezing her shoulder. "It's almost over, and then we get cookies."
"The perfect cookie is best eaten while still warm, but still delicious at room temperature."
"If you don't quit talking, they won't be warm anymore," Kitty grumbles. I shoot her a glare, but truthfully, I'm glad she's here to be a buffer between Peter and me. Her presence makes things feel normal.
"In the baking world, it is a truth universally acknowledged that Jacques Torres has perfected the chocolate chip cookie. Peter, you and I tasted it for ourselves just a few months ago." I'm really stretching it now to make them suffer. "How will my cookie measure up? Spoiler alert. It's amazing."
Kitty slides off her stool. "That's it. I'm out of here. A chocolate chip cookie isn't worth all this."
I pat her on the head. "Oh, naïve little Kitten. Dear, foolish girl. This cookie is worth all this and more. Sit or you will not partake."
Rolling her eyes, she sits back down.
"My friends, I have finally found it. My white whale. My golden ring. The cookie to rule them all. #Quote by Jenny Han
Could Have Should Have quotes by Rick Riordan
#33. Looking at Harley, my anger evaporated. I felt hollow, silly, ashamed of myself.
Yes, me, Apollo... ashamed.
Truly, it was an event so unprecedented, it should have ripped apart the cosmos. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Could Have Should Have quotes by Dion Fortune
#34. The average man may be capable of benefiting by initiation, or he may not; it also depends upon his capacity; but each individual should have the opportunity of advancing to the highest development of which he is capable. #Quote by Dion Fortune
Could Have Should Have quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#35. I do not care for anything. I do not care to ride, for the exercise is too violent. I do not care to walk, walking is too strenuous. I do not care to lie down, for I should either have to remain lying, and I do not care to do that, or I should have to get up again, and I do not care to do that either. Summa summarum: I do not care at all. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Could Have Should Have quotes by Charles Bukowski
#36. something's knocking at the door

a great white light dawns across the
as we fawn over our failed traditions,
often kill to preserve them
or sometimes kill just to kill.
it doesn't seem to matter: the answers dangle just
out of reach,
out of hand, out of mind.

the leaders of the past were insufficient,
the leaders of the present are unprepared.
we curl up tightly in our beds at night and wait.
it is a waiting without hope, more like a prayer for unmerited grace.

it all looks more and more like the same old movie.
the actors are different but the plot's the same:

we should have known, watching our fathers.
we should have known, watching our mothers.
they did not know, they too were not prepared to teach.
we were too naive to ignore their counsel and now we have embraced their ignorance as our own.
we are them, multiplied.
we are their unpaid debts.
we are bankrupt in money and in spirit.

there are a few exceptions, of course, but these teeter on the
and will
at any moment
tumble down to join the rest
of us,
the raving, the battered, the blind and the sadly

a great white light dawns across the
the flowers open blindly in the stinking wind,
#Quote by Charles Bukowski
Could Have Should Have quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#37. Even if the right to vote brought to women no better work, no better pay, no better conditions in any way, she should have itfor her own self-respect and to compel man's respect for her. #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Could Have Should Have quotes by Jamie Mason
#38. Then Jason felt a brief statistical curiosity over how many people died annually because they couldn't move when they should. He couldn't think as far away as his feet, and they weren't going anywhere on their own. It seemed that the internal conflict should have screamed in his head like a sold-out theater on fire, but in practice it felt stupidly bovine, like shoveling in more dull food when you were already full. #Quote by Jamie Mason
Could Have Should Have quotes by Cassandra Clare
#39. As Luke knelt down beside his corpse, Clary couldn't help but remember what he had said about having loved Valentine once, about having been his closest friend. Luke, she thought with a pang. Surely he couldn't be sad - or even grieved?
But then again, perhaps everyone should have someone to grieve for them, and there was no one else to grieve for Valentine. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Could Have Should Have quotes by Stephen King
#40. I don't want you to apologize for being rich; I want you to acknowledge that in America, we all should have to pay our fair share. #Quote by Stephen King
Could Have Should Have quotes by Paullina Simons
#41. Tatiana knew she had been born too late into the family. She and Pasha. She should have been born in 1917, like Dasha. After her there were other children, but not for long: two brothers, one born in 1919 and one in 1921, died of typhus. A girl, born in 1922, died of scarlet fever in 1923. Then in 1924, as Lenin was dying and the New Economic Plan - that short-lived return to free enterprise - was coming to an end, while Stalin was scheming to enlarge his power base in the presidium through the firing squad, Pasha and Tatiana were born seven minutes apart to a very tired twenty-five-year-old Irina Fedorovna. The family wanted Pasha, their boy, but Tatiana was a stunning surprise. No one had twins. Who had twins? Twins were almost unheard of. And there was no room for her. She and Pasha had to share a crib for the first three years of their life. Since then Tatiana slept with Dasha. #Quote by Paullina Simons

Could Have Should Have quotes by Akiane Kramarik
#43. I believe everyone should have an opportunity to search for truth their own way. Humility, peace, child-like enthusiasm, acceptance, and sincerity is the true infinity engine! #Quote by Akiane Kramarik

#44. I should have been a Trappist monk. #Quote by David Blunkett
Could Have Should Have quotes by Sloane Crosley
#45. The only bit I have pictured in any detail is the music (maybe 'The Book of Love' by the Magnetic Fields. Or Johnny Cash's 'It Ain't Me, Babe'). It doesn't matter if the selection is slow or fast, but couples shouldn't scramble to select it. If you have ever gone dancing or on a road trip or had a romantic bout of serenaded sex on a winter night, you should have a few to pick from. If not, you probably shouldn't be getting married. #Quote by Sloane Crosley
Could Have Should Have quotes by Jarod Kintz
#46. She had a forehead like a dance floor. You should have seen the way the sun danced on her face in the middle of the night. I never actually saw it because I was always asleep in the middle of the night, but I'll bet it looked unbelievable. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Could Have Should Have quotes by Philippa Gregory
#47. Eyes downcast, she went past me without a glance. Dismissively her gown brushed my knees as if I should have drawn further back, out of her way, as if everyone should always step back to let Anne through. Then she was gone and as I looked up I met the Queen's eye. She looked blankly at me as I might look at a rivalry of birds fluttering in a dovecote. It was not as if it mattered. They would all be eaten in time. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
