Fool quotes by Ann Coulter
#1. It is an article of faith with the Democrats that they must fool Americans by simulating agreement with normal people. The winner of the Democratic primary is always the candidate who does the best impersonation of an American. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Fool quotes by Daniel Keyes
#2. To control one's own destiny takes a mastermind. To execute the plans takes a fool. #Quote by Daniel Keyes
Fool quotes by Jacqueline Francis - The Journal
#3. March 22, 2014

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I thought I could run from this woman, but she continues to chase me. In my mind, my heart, she's always there. An entire bottle of whiskey can't drown out her voice. I wake up each morning hoping it will finally be the day that I get over her. But then night falls and memories of her begin to torture me until sleep is no longer an option. Each night I fall into this abyss of nothingness, feeling only the emptiness of not having her beside me.

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I slept with another woman, all the while wishing it was her and I still went through with it.
What a fool I was. I still long to feel the satisfaction I was supposed to have felt that night. I still long to feel the freedom I'd hoped to gain from seeking refuge in the arms of another woman. But I'll never be free of her. It will take an eternity to break out of these shackles.

For one month, ONE month I couldn't keep my dick in my pants and yet for two years I haven't even so much as looked at another woman. I've remained completely faithful to a memory. Devoted to her smile.

Committed to her ever-changing green eyes. I have read through the past entries in this journal and I noticed that I have never used her name. As if inking it would somehow solidify the feelings I think I've always felt.

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I do love her.

Fool quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#4. Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Fool quotes by Bowe Bergdahl
#5. I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of U.S. soldier is just the lie of fools, #Quote by Bowe Bergdahl
Fool quotes by Jay Asher
#6. Unsure of what I was. An optimist? A pessimist?
Neither. A fool. #Quote by Jay Asher
Fool quotes by Mary Renault
#7. Nothing will change, Alexias. No, that is false; there is change whenever there is life, and already we are not the two who met in Taureas' palaestra. But what kind of fool would plant an apple-slip, to cut it down at the season when the fruit is setting? Flowers you can get every year, but only with time the tree that shades your doorway and grows into the house with each year's sun and rain. #Quote by Mary Renault
Fool quotes by Robin Hobb
#8. My blood will only buy you that fool's regard. I will pay a high price for you to be respected by a churl. Nothing bought with blood is worth having, young man. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Fool quotes by Oscar Wilde
#9. I make a great difference between people. I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their good intellects. A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies. I have not got one who is a fool. They are all men of some intellectual power, and consequently they all appreciate me. Is that very vain of me? I think it is rather vain. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Fool quotes by H.L. Mencken
#10. A fool who, after plain warning, persists in dosing himself with dangerous drugs should be free to do so, for his death is a benefit to the race in general. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Fool quotes by George R R Martin
#11. Serving men cleared away the swan, hardly touched. Cersei beckoned for the sweets. "I hope you like blackberry tarts."
"I love all sorts of tarts."
"Oh, I've know that for a long while. Do you know why Varys is so dangerous?"
"Are we playing riddles now? No."
"He doesn't have a cock."
"Neither do you." And don't you just hate that, Cersei?
""Perhaps, I'm dangerous too. You, on the other hand, are as big a fool as every other man. That worm between your legs does half your thinking. #Quote by George R R Martin
Fool quotes by Jed S. Rakoff
#12. I have a past of making a fool of myself. #Quote by Jed S. Rakoff
Fool quotes by Karen Hawkins
#13. Bloody hell, what did he hit me with? An anvil?"
"His fist."
"You should put that fool in a bear-baiting pit. You'd make a fortune." Dougal struggled to rise.
Sophia helped him on one side, Mary slipping under his other arm.
The wind swirled a bit harder, sending dust into the air.
"Heavens!" Mary said, glancing over their heads at the sky. "That's the third thunderhead as has passed this way today."
Sophia turned. A huge bank of thunderclouds hung overhead, roiling as if alive.
"We should get inside," she said uneasily.
Dougal didn't even glance at the clouds as he held a hand over his bruised eye and cheek. "Bloody hell, I can barely see. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Fool quotes by Terry Pratchett
#14. For the enemy is not Troll, nor it is Dwarf, but it is the baleful, the malign, the cowardly, the vessels of hatred, those who do a bad thing and call it good. Those we fought today, but the willful fool is eternal and will say - '" "This is just a trick!" Ardent shouted. "' - say this is a trick,'" Bashfullsson continued, "'and so we implore: come to the caves under this valley, where you will find us sharing the peace that cannot be braken. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Fool quotes by William Boyd
#15. Any fool can "obey" an order,' Hamo said, darkly. 'The clever thing is to interpret it. #Quote by William Boyd
Fool quotes by Ray Bradbury
#16. The old man would go on with this talking and this talking, drop by drop, stone by stone, flake by flake. His mind would well over at last and he would not be Montag any more, this the old man told him, assured him, promised him. He would be Montag-plus-Faber, fire plus water, and then, one day, after everything had mixed and simmered and worked away in silence, there would be neither fire nor water, but wine. Out of two separate and opposite things, a third. And one day he would look back upon the fool and know the fool. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Fool quotes by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
#17. Those who are blindly led, blindly follow. #Quote by Justin K. McFarlane Beau
Fool quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#18. 40. Be Defiant In our opinion, most search engine optimization (SEO) is bullshit. It involves trying to read Google's mind and then gaming the system to make Google find crap. There are three thousand computer science PhDs at Google trying to make each search relevant, and then there's you trying to fool them. Who's going to win? Tricking Google is futile. Instead, you should let Google do what it does best: find great content. So defy all the SEO witchcraft out there and focus on creating, curating, and sharing great content. This is what's called SMO: social-media optimization. #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Fool quotes by Wences Casares
#19. In Spanish, we have a saying that when a genius points at the moon, a fool looks at the finger. I find that happens a lot with bitcoin. #Quote by Wences Casares
Fool quotes by Vanessa Read
#20. Better a live goat than a dead fool. #Quote by Vanessa Read
Fool quotes by Janet Morris
#21. Let fools believe what fools believe. #Quote by Janet Morris
Fool quotes by Thomas Merton
#22. The devil is no fool. He can get people feeling about heaven the way they ought to feel about hell. He can make them fear the means of grace the way they do not fear sin. And he does so, not by light but by obscurity, not by realities but by shadows; not by clarity and substance, but by dreams and the creatures of psychosis. And men are so poor in intellect that a few cold chills down their spine will be enough to keep them from ever finding out the truth about anything. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Fool quotes by Renee Ahdieh
#23. We women are a sad lot, aren't we?"
"What do you mean?"
"Strong enough to take on the world with our bare hands, yet we permit ridiculous boys to make fools of us."
"I am not a fool."
"No, you're not. Not yet. #Quote by Renee Ahdieh
Fool quotes by Leonard Maltin
#24. A Christmas Carol is such a fool-proof story you can't louse it up. #Quote by Leonard Maltin
Fool quotes by Jonathan Stroud
#25. Kitty shook her head. "You're wrong. Your apology isn't irrelevant and you're a fool if you can't see it. I'm grateful that you stopped Makepeace from having me killed. Now stop being such a wet blanket and try to think of something to do."
He looked at her. "Hold on - was there a thanks buried in that pile of invective? #Quote by Jonathan Stroud
Fool quotes by Sophocles
#26. A fool cannot be an actor, though an actor may act a fool's part. #Quote by Sophocles
Fool quotes by Philippa Gregory
#27. I have heard ballads of great battles, and poems about the beauty of a charge and the grace of a leader. But I did not know that war was nothing more than butchery, as savage and unskilled as sticking a pig in the throat and leaving it to bleed to make the meat tender. I did not know that the style and nobility of the jousting arena had nothing to do with this thrust and stab. Just like killing a screaming piglet for bacon after chasing it round the sty. And I did not know that war thrilled men so: they come home laughing like schoolboys after a prank; but they have blood on their hands and a smear of something on their cloaks and the smell of smoke in their hair and a terrible ugly excitement on their faces.

I understand now why they break into convents, force women against their will, defy sanctuary to finish the killing chase. They arouse in themselves a wild vicious hunger more like animals than men. I did not know war was like this. I feel I have been a fool not to know, since I was raised in a kingdom at war and am the daughter of a man captured in battle, the widow of a night, the wife of a merciless solider. But I know now. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Fool quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#28. For of course if nobody agrees with you, how are you to know youre not a fool? #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Fool quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#29. Secondly," he went on, "a Chief Magistrate is about as far beneath a marquess's daughter as a tree is beneath the moon."
A mutinous look crossed his aunt's face. "Sir Richard started out as a saddler's apprentice. He got himself a knighthood partly because he married a wife with good connections."
"A wealthy baker's daughter. That's a far cry from a lady of rank."
"That doesn't mean it can't happen. You're a fine man, a handsome man, if I do say so myself. You're young and strong, with a good education and gentlemanly manners-better manners than Sir Richard, anyway. And now that you own this house-"
"She lives in a mansion!" Snatching his arm free, he rose. "Do you really think she'd be happy here in Cheapside, with the butchers and merchants and tradesmen?"
Her aunt looked wounded. "I thought you liked this neighborhood."
Damn. "I do, but..." There was nothing for it but to tell her the truth. "She can't stand me, all right? I'd be the last person on earth she'd want to marry." Snatching up the report, he headed for the door. "I have to go."
"What?" he barked.
"If that's true, she's a fool."
Lady Celia was no fool. She simply knew better than to take up with a man who didn't know the identity of his own father. He managed a curt nod. "I'll see you tonight, Aunt."
As he left the house, an age-old anger weighed him down. He wouldn't hurt Aunt Ada for the world, but she didn't understand. Ever since he'd started #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Fool quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#30. Jesus remains unshaken as the practical man; and we stand exposed as the fools, the blunderers, the unpractical visionaries. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Fool quotes by Ayana Mathis
#31. I couldn't stand to be a fool a second time,' Hattie said. 'I couldn't stand it. #Quote by Ayana Mathis
Fool quotes by Osho
#32. You are always afraid that somebody may think you a fool. You are afraid that if others think you to be a fool, you will start suspecting it. If so many people think you a fool your self-confidence will be lost. And if everybody goes on repeating that you are a fool, sooner or later you will come to believe it.

Only a wise man cannot be deceived, he can appear as a fool.

Have you observed yourself? You are always trying to exhibit your wisdom, always in search of a victim to whom you can show your knowledge, just searching, hunting for somebody weaker than you – then you will jump in and you will show your wisdom.
A wise man need not be an exhibitionist. Whatsoever is, is. He is not aware of it, he is not in any hurry to show it. If you want to find it, you will have to make efforts. If you have to know whether he is gentle or not, that is going to be your discovery. #Quote by Osho
Fool quotes by Julia Quinn
#33. Eloise," Penelope said, somewhat breathless from trying to shake off
"Penelope." But Eloise's voice sounded curious. Which did not
surprise Penelope; Eloise was no fool, and she was well aware that her
brother's normal modes of behavior did not include beatific smiles in her
"Eloise," Hyacinth said, for no reason Penelope could deduce.
Penelope turned to her husband. "Colin."
He looked amused. "Penelope. Hyacinth."
Hyacinth grinned. "Colin." And then: "Sir Phillip."
"Ladies." Sir Phillip, it seemed, favored brevity.
"Stop!" Eloise burst out. "What is going on?"
"A recitation of our Christian names, apparently," Hyacinth said. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Fool quotes by Sasha Graham
#34. I hope you find your truth and when you do, you stand in the middle of it strong, beautiful and nimble like the World dancer. Because when the Fool followed her own path and trusted herself, she found herself in the World. And by the time she did, she was so high on the music-so enraptured by the dancing, so lost in the beauty, so in tune with herself, and so filled with magic-she didn't even realize she's arrived at her destination. #Quote by Sasha Graham
Fool quotes by Seneca.
#35. The wise man, he said, lacked nothing but needed a great number of things, whereas 'the fool, on the other hand, needs nothing (for he does not know how to use anything) but lack everything. #Quote by Seneca.
Fool quotes by Kristen Stewart
#36. I prefer to be hated than be false and fool people. #Quote by Kristen Stewart
Fool quotes by Bootsy Collins
#37. Recording wasn't as important to me as actually being to get on stage and act the fool. #Quote by Bootsy Collins
Fool quotes by Robin Hobb
#38. Sometimes all the choices are poor ones, Fool, and still a man must choose. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Fool quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#39. This was a syllogistic monstrosity even worse than the last, thought Wimsey. A man who could reason like that could not reason at all. He constructed a new syllogism for himself. The man who committed this murder was not a fool. Weldon is a fool. Therefore Weldon did not commit this murder. That appeared to be sound, so far as it went. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Fool quotes by Sholem Aleichem
#40. Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor. #Quote by Sholem Aleichem
Fool quotes by Walt Disney Company
#41. You little fool. You thought you could defeat the most powerful being on Earth. #Quote by Walt Disney Company
Fool quotes by Kei Miller
#42. Maybe you shake your head, but let me learn a lesson right now: plenty knowledge is in this world. Enough knowledge that you can pick and refuse. And if you want, you can refuse to know plenty things, don't care how true those things be. I know things you does not know, and things you will never know. And it is sake of that - sake of this knowledge - that people have looked on me and called me old fool or crazy. They treat me like I is retarded. Imagine that. I is the idiot because I know what they don't know. #Quote by Kei Miller
Fool quotes by Daniel A. Schulke
#43. Poison is a glyph for magical power itself: complex, concentrated, liberated in the hands of the elect, and disastrous in the hands of the fool. Its very nature is transmutative, changing all it touches, the maker and breaker of laws, policies, and epidemiological systems. #Quote by Daniel A. Schulke
Fool quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#44. Young Tchitcherine was the one who brought up political narcotics. Opiates of the people.

Wimpe smiled back. An old, old smile to chill even the living fire in Earth's core. "Marxist dialectics? That's not an opiate, eh?"

"It's the antidote."

"No." It can go either way. The dope salesman may know everything that's ever going to happen to Tchitcherine, and decide it's no use - or, out of the moment's velleity, lay it right out for the young fool.

"The basic problem," he proposes, "has always been getting other people to die for you. What's worth enough for a man to give up his life? That's where religion had the edge, for centuries. Religion was always about death. It was used not as an opiate so much as a technique - it got people to die for one particular set of beliefs about death. Perverse, natürlich, but who are you to judge? It was a good pitch while it worked. But ever since it became impossible to die for death, we have had a secular version - yours. Die to help History grow to its predestined shape. Die knowing your act will bring will bring a good end a bit closer. Revolutionary suicide, fine. But look: if History's changes are inevitable, why not not die? Vaslav? If it's going to happen anyway, what does it matter?"

"But you haven't ever had the choice to make, have you."

"If I ever did, you can be sure - "

"You don't know. Not till you're there, Wimpe. You can't say."

"That does #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Fool quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#45. A fool is often as dangerous to deal with as a knave, and always more incorrigible. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Fool quotes by Nora Roberts
#46. It's better to see and know you're a fool than to keep your eyes shut and keep acting like one. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Fool quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#47. I know that a pretty doll, a fair fool, might do well enough for the honeymoon; but when passion cooled, how dreadful to find a lump of wax and wood laid in my bosom, a half-idiot clasped in my arms, and to remember that I had made of this my equal- nay, my idol- to know that I must pass the rest of my dreary life with a creature incapable of understanding what I said, of appreciating what I thought, or of sympathising with what I felt! #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Fool quotes by M.C. Scott
#48. Corbulo: a name to conjure with, a name to follow into battle, wherever he led; a name to have a man marching to the gates of Rome, crying Imperator! until the crowds and the idiot senate and the corrupt wax-brains of the Praetorian Guard and every other man with voting powers in the city came to understand what we already knew: that this man should be our emperor, that Rome would thrive under his rule, in place of the fool who presently held the throne.
Corbulo, who stood before us that bright, brisk spring afternoon and watched as our centurions bawled us through our paces, and then as Cadus took charge and marched us through the display that we had been practising, if we were honest, for the last four years, just for this moment. #Quote by M.C. Scott
Fool quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#49. I desire to press forward for direction to my Master in all things; but as to trusting to my own obedience and righteousness, I should be worse than a fool and ten times worse than a madman. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Fool quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#50. A rogue is a roundabout fool. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Fool quotes by George Orwell
#51. Vice is punished, but virtue is not rewarded #Quote by George Orwell
Fool quotes by Snoop Dogg
#52. The red carpet is a beautiful situation for people. I think everybody appreciates it and loves it and honors it. Nobody really acts a fool because they know this is a one-time thing. #Quote by Snoop Dogg
Fool quotes by Martyn Stanley
#53. Vexis listened, then shook her head, her eyes full of sorrow. 'YOU are the fool! You cannot rob people of their beliefs and expect them to just accept it. Even now, I mourn the death of Avanti every day. Even though I now know she was never real. The idea of Avanti was real. Serving Avanti gave me a purpose, I felt she was guiding and encouraging me. Now I have nothing, I am reduced to simply "making it up as I go along". I hate you Brael. I will never forgive you for what you did.'
Brael took a deep breath. 'You were always making it up as you went along. You just didn't know it. People need to take responsibility for their actions. There is one person guiding me, and that is me. I will live as long as I can and I will try to leave this world a better place for my presence. That is enough purpose for all. #Quote by Martyn Stanley
Fool quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#54. Then out of the blackness in his mind he thought that he heard Dernhelm speaking; yet now the voice seemed strange, recalling some other voice that he had known.

'Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!'

A cold voice answered: 'Come not between the Nazgûl and his prey! Or he will slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye.'

A sword rang as it was drawn. 'Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may.'

'Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!'

Then Merry heard of all sounds in that hour the strangest. It seemed that Dernhelm laughed, and the clear voice was like the ring of steel. 'But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Éowyn I am, Éomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Fool quotes by Pierce Brown
#55. A fool pulls the leaves. A brute chops the trunk. A sage digs the roots. #Quote by Pierce Brown
Fool quotes by Julia Quinn
#56. Any man, you'll soon learn, has an insurmountable need to blame someone else when he is made to look a fool. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Fool quotes by Ronald Reagan
#57. I can't believe that this world can go on beyond our generation and on down to succeeding generations with this kind of weapon on both sides poised at each other without someday some fool or some maniac or some accident triggering the kind of war that is the end of the line for all of us. And I just think of what a sigh of relief would go up from everyone on this earth if someday-and this is what I have-my hope, way in the back of my head-is that if we start down the road to reduction, maybe one day in doing that, somebody will say, 'Why not all the way? Let's get rid of all these things'. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Fool quotes by Democritus
#58. One great difference between a wise man and a fool is, the former only wishes for what he may possibly obtain; the latter desires impossibilities. #Quote by Democritus
Fool quotes by Suzanne Collins
#59. Don't be a fool, Katniss. Think for yourself. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Fool quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#60. Fate is the malevolent little jester sitting up in the heavens and pondering over how ridiculous we humans are and he does his best to make fools out of all of us. And sooner or later he succeeds. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Fool quotes by Beverly Engel
#61. Most survivors tend to be the care-giver rather than the care-receiver. We tend to be good at being spouses and parents, anticipating our loved ones needs, going the second mile when it came to self sacrifice. But seldom can we ask our loved ones to give to us. We fool ourselves into believing we don't need much. #Quote by Beverly Engel
Fool quotes by Robert J. Crane
#62. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, and I'll put a whole magazine of bullets in your skull. #Quote by Robert J. Crane
Fool quotes by Bruce Meyer
#63. Only a fool would dream of riches when what is rarest are moments #Quote by Bruce Meyer
Fool quotes by Jan Jansen
#64. Why a wise man think that he is more smarter than a Fool! #Quote by Jan Jansen
Fool quotes by William Hazlitt
#65. Confidence gives a fool the advantage over a wise man. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Fool quotes by Frank McCourt
#66. In the high school classroom you are a drill sergent, a rabbi, a shoulder to cry on, a disciplinarian, a singer, a low-level scholar, a clerk, a referee, a clown, a counselor, a dress-code enforcer, a conductor, an apologist, a philosopher, a collaborator, a tap dancer, a politician, a therapist, a fool, a traffic cop, a priest, a mother-father-brother-sister-uncle-aunt, a bookeeper, a critic, a psychologist, the last straw. #Quote by Frank McCourt
Fool quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#67. The laws keep up their credit, not by being just, but because they are laws; 'tis the mystic foundation of their authority; they have no other, and it well answers their purpose. They are often made by fools; still oftener by men who, out of hatred to equality, fail in equity; but always by men, vain and irresolute authors. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Fool quotes by Sheldon B. Kopp
#68. We must learn to give ourselves permission to blunder, to fail, and to make fools of ourselves every day for the rest of our lives. We do so in any case. #Quote by Sheldon B. Kopp
Fool quotes by Giacomo Casanova
#69. I have felt in my very blood, ever since I was born, a most unconquerable hatred towards the whole tribe of fools, and it arises from the fact that I feel myself a blockhead whenever I am in their company. #Quote by Giacomo Casanova
Fool quotes by Will Durant
#70. You can't fool all the people all the time, but you can fool enough of them to rule a large country. #Quote by Will Durant
Fool quotes by Amy Tan
#71. And all that talk about the breakup being good for us- who am I trying to fool? I'm cut loose, untethered, not belonging to anything or anybody. #Quote by Amy Tan
Fool quotes by Dan Quayle
#72. We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a part of NATO. We have a firm commitment to Europe. We are a part of Europe. #Quote by Dan Quayle
Fool quotes by Haruki Murakami
#73. Genius or fool, you don't live in the world alone. You can hide underground or you can build a wall around yourself, but somebody's going to come along and screw up the works. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Fool quotes by Richard Branson
#74. Half the art of ballooning is to make your crashes so gentle that you can fool yourself into calling them landings. #Quote by Richard Branson
Fool quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#75. The final moment of success is often no more thrilling than taking off a heavy backpack at the end of a long hike. If you went on the hike only to feel that pleasure, you are a fool. Yet people sometimes do just this. They work hard at a task and expect some special euphoria at the end. But when they achieve success and find only moderate and short-lived pleasure, they ask is that all there is? They devalue their accomplishments as a striving after wind. We can call this the progress principle: Pleasure comes more from making progress toward goals than from achieving them. #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Fool quotes by John Irving
#76. Along the (writing) way accidents happen, detours get taken ... But these are not "divine" accidents; I don't believe in those. I believe you have constructive accidents en route through a novel only because you have mapped a clear way. If you have confidence that you have a clear direction to take, you always have confidence to explore other ways; if they prove to be mere digressions, you'll recognize that and make the necessary revisions. The more you know about a book, the freer you can be to fool around. The less you know, the tighter you get. #Quote by John Irving
Fool quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#77. We learn the most from fools ... yet we pay them back with the worst ingratitude. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Fool quotes by William Shakespeare
#78. Merely, thou art death's fool,
For him thou labor'st by thy flight to shun,
And yet run'st toward him still. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Fool quotes by Kelly Fiore Stultz
#79. Love, real love - it's worth fighting for, you know? It's worth doing everything you can to save it. Even if it means making a fool of yourself. Even if it means losing the person you love in the end. As long as you've really tried -- well, then you know that you've done all you can. #Quote by Kelly Fiore Stultz
Fool quotes by Gail Levin
#80. I don't think she [Marilyn Monroe] saw herself as victimized and a sex object. She knew how to contend with it. I'm sure she was no fool about it. On the one hand, it was very flattering and great; on the other hand, it was probably awful and could be very lascivious and very terrible. But I think a lot of women just wanted to be like her. And that's still true today. #Quote by Gail Levin
Fool quotes by Blaise Pascal
#81. The authority of reason is far more imperious than that of a master; for he who disobeys the one is unhappy, but he who disobeys the other is a fool. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Fool quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#82. Most of my failures can be ascribed to the fact that I chose that which was 'easy' over that which was 'right'. And while it's 'right' to admit this to myself, it isn't 'easy.' So, which choice am I going to make this time? #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Fool quotes by Terry Pratchett
#83. But you don't even like being a Fool!" "I hate it. But that's got nothing to do with it. If I've got to be a Fool, I'll do it properly." "That's really stupid," said Magrat. "Foolish, I'd prefer." The #Quote by Terry Pratchett

Fool quotes by Gautama Buddha
#89. The fool worries, thinking, "I have sons, I have wealth." Indeed, when he himself is not his own, whence are sons, whence is wealth? #Quote by Gautama Buddha

Fool quotes by Christopher Moore
#91. Quoi?" she had said, in perfect fucking French. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Fool quotes by Robert Graves
#92. Dust in a cloud, blinding weather,
Drums that rattle and roar!
A mother and daughter stood together
Beside their cottage door.

'Mother, the heavens are bright like brass,
The dust is shaken high,
With labouring breath the soldiers pass,
Their lips are cracked and dry.'

'Mother, I'll throw them apples down,
I'll bring them pails of water.'
The mother turned with an angry frown
Holding back her daughter.

'But mother, see, they faint with thirst,
They march away to die,'
'Ah, sweet, had I but known at first
Their throats are always dry.'

'There is no water can supply them
In western streams that flow,
There is no fruit can satisfy them
On orchard trees that grow.'

'Once in my youth I gave, poor fool,
A soldier apples and water,
So may I die before you cool
Your father's drouth, my daughter. #Quote by Robert Graves
Fool quotes by Bernard Cornwell

Fool quotes by Sarah Strohmeyer
#94. I think the only answer is to live life to the fullest while you can and collect memories like fools collect money. Because in the end, that's all you have - happy memories. #Quote by Sarah Strohmeyer
Fool quotes by J.K. Rowling
#95. And this is Nymphadora-"
"Don't call me Nymphadora, Remus," said the young witch with a shudder. "It's Tonks."
"-Nymphadora Tonks, who prefers to be known by her surname only," finished Lupin.
"So would you if your fool of a mother had called you 'Nymphadora,' " muttered Tonks. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Fool quotes by Sarah Dessen
#96. Don't be a fool. Don't give up something important to hold onto someone who can't even say they love you. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Fool quotes by Mette Ivie Harrison
#97. Your name?" George asked him directly. He had probably seen the man a dozen times before yet did not know anything about him. King Davit would have no doubt have known half the man's history already.
George took Henry's hand firmly in his own and looked into his eyes. This had to be done delicately, to make sure this Henry did not think him a fool. He tried to think of how his father would do it.
"Thank you, Henry, for your concern. It is a comfort to know I am so well guarded. I will make sure to praise you when next I speak to the lord general. But for now I think there is no need to worry. #Quote by Mette Ivie Harrison
Fool quotes by Donald Cargill
#98. But go on, valiant champion; you die not as a fool, though the apostate, unfaithful, and lukewarm ministers and professors of this generation think and say so. #Quote by Donald Cargill
Fool quotes by Gautama Buddha
#99. Suppose a man threw into the sea a yoke with one hole in it, and the east wind carried it to the west, and the west wind carried it to the east, and the north wind carried it to the south, and the south wind carried it to the north. Suppose there were a blind turtle that came up once at the end of each century. What do you think, bhikkhus? Would that blind turtle put his neck into that yoke with one hole in it?"
"He might, venerable sir, sometime or other at the end of a long period."
"Bhikkhus, the blind turtle would sooner put his neck into that yoke with a single hole in it than a fool, once gone to perdition, would take to regain the human state, I say. Why is that? Because there is no practising of the Dhamma there, no practising of what is righteous, no doing of what is wholesome, no performance of merit. There mutual devouring prevails, and the slaughter of the weak. #Quote by Gautama Buddha

#105. Butch : Two words for you. CYNDI.LAUPER
Vishous : Clearly, the paste you ate has gone to your head. Did Marissa like all that lace you glued on ? Oh ... and I'm talking to your body, not that ridiculous card you made her.
Butch : How does that song go ?
*sings song about true colors*
Vishous : I have no idea what you are talking about.
Butch : Oh.Really. So you deny that shit was playing in the weight room yesterday ?
Vishous : Please. Like I listen to crap like that ?
Butch : So you deny that song was also playing in the Escalade last night ?
Vishous : Don't act the fool.
Butch : So you deny that song was ALSO coming out of your shower early this morning. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Fool quotes by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
#106. My princess," began Mara, then found she could not speak the crushing phrases. "His Highness sends his warmest regards," she finished.
She had the satisfaction of seeing Ianni's face come back to life; the great dark eyes lost their look of suffering and turned hopefully toward the king. Mara turned to him too, well-pleased with her merciful little lie. But one look at his startled face froze the blood in her veins. What a fool she was! Of course, he had understood every word she said.
"Son of Pharaoh, live forever!" she gasped. "I crave pardon-- I could not believe you meant to wound this princess, however lowly--"
"You mean you forgot that I could understand," retorted Thutmose. #Quote by Eloise Jarvis McGraw

Fool quotes by Glen Hansard
#112. There's this unspoken thing that you have to wear a tux and some kind of nice dress. There are all these ethical rules, but I'm sure if you came to the Oscars in ripped jeans and a t-shirt they wouldn't throw you out. You would just look like a fool. #Quote by Glen Hansard

#116. I am not a poor child, Lady Eleanor," Madelyne announced, letting her anger sound in her voice.
"Duncan won't marry you. He won't sign the contracts. He'd have to give up his greatest treasure in order to marry you."
"And what be that treasure?" Lady Eleanor inquired, her voice mild.
"Why, I'm Duncan's greatest treasure. He'd be a fool to give me up," she added. "And even you must know that Duncan is anything but a fool. #Quote by Julie Garwood
Fool quotes by Michael Arceneaux
#117. I couldn't make someone love me. I couldn't make myself desirable to someone who didn't want me. I couldn't compel someone to see me in the same way in which I wanted to be seen. All I could do was be myself, and if someone didn't fool with me, find someone else. #Quote by Michael Arceneaux

Fool quotes by Adrian Wooldridge
#122. Peter Drucker once noted that "no institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it. It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under the leadership of perfectly normal human beings." Warren Buffet made the same point more pithily: "I only invest in companies which any fool can run, because some day some fool will run it. #Quote by Adrian Wooldridge

Fool quotes by Cesar Romero
#124. I was out dancing with one actress or another. And that got press. Even when it didn't, the whole town knew I was a dancing fool, and since I couldn't very well dance with a man, they saw me dancing with a lady, and they assumed the rest. #Quote by Cesar Romero

Fool quotes by B.C. Forbes
#128. He is a wise man who seeks by every legitimate means to make all the money he can honestly, for money can do so many worthwhile things in this world, not merely for one's self but for others. But he is an unmitigated fool who imagines for a moment that it is more important to make the money than to make it honestly. One of the advantages of possessing money is that it facilitates one's independence and mental attitude. The man head over heels in debt is more slave than independent. #Quote by B.C. Forbes
Fool quotes by Jodee Blanco

Fool quotes by William Golding
#131. One thing should be put firmly. Where people have commented on that novel [The Paper Men], they generally criticize the poor academic, Rick L. Tucker, who is savaged by the author, Wilfred Barclay. I don't think people have noticed that I have been far ruder about Barclay than I have been about Tucker. Tucker is a fool, but Barclay is a swine. The author really gets his come-uppance. #Quote by William Golding
Fool quotes by Stephen Fry
#132. I really do believe that there are those who would like and trust me better if they saw me weeping into a whisky, making a fool of myself, getting aggressive, maudlin and drunkenly out of control. I have never found those states in others anything other than tiring, awkward, embarrassing and fantastically dull, but I am quite sure that people would cherish a view of me in that condition at least once in a while. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Fool quotes by Jessica Khoury
#133. You fool of a jinni! LET ME OUT!
Startled from my thoughts, I pull Zhian's jar from my sleeve and turn it over. I can easily imagine him swirling inside, a cloud of smoke and fury.
Be silent, Zhian. I'll decide when you're let out, and right now, you're not inspiring my merciful side.
He howls and hurls insults, which I try to ignore as I trail after Aladdin.
I have Zhian at last. At any moment I could break open the jar and free him, fulfilling my end of the bargain and claiming my freedom. But what happens next? The humiliation of being captured by the humans will have made Zhian furious. He's had two moons to feed his hatred of humans, and by now it is ravenous, destructive. If I let him out now, Parthenia will not stand a chance. He'll destroy the city from the inside out, regardless of my deal with his father.
I have to release him outside the city walls and trust that the wards will protect everyone inside from his inevitable wrath.
Aladdin heads back toward his rooms, and I follow at a distance, my chest feeling emptier than ever.
It's time to say goodbye. #Quote by Jessica Khoury
Fool quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#134. Rockton is no more Oliver than Churchgrove is Lord Kirkwood," Lady Minerva said stoutly.
"Then why did you steal my name for him?" Oliver asked.
"It's not quite your name, old chap," Lord Gabriel said. "And you know perfectly well that Minerva likes to tweak your nose from time to time."
"Stop calling me 'old,' blast it," Oliver grumbled. "I'm not some doddering fool."
"How old are you, anyway?" Maria asked him, amused by his vanity.
"Thirty-five." Mrs. Plumtree had said little until now, but apparently the conversation had piqued her interest. "That's long past the age when a man should marry, don't you think, Miss Butterfield?"
Aware of Oliver's gaze on her, Maria chose her words carefully. "I suppose it depends on the man. Papa didn't marry until he was nearly that age. He was too busy fighting in the Revolutionary War to court anyone."
When the blood drained from Mrs. Plumtree's face, Oliver's eyes held a glint of triumph. "Ah, yes, the Revolutionary War. Did I forget to mention, Gran, that Mr. Butterfield was a soldier in the Continental Marines?"
The table got very quiet. Lady Minerva focused on eating her soup. Lady Celia took several sips of wine, one after another, and Lord Jarret stared into his soup bowl as if it contained the secret to life. The only real sound punctuating the silence was Lord Gabriel's muttered "bloody hell."
Clearly, there was some undercurrent here that Maria didn't understand. Oliver was watching hi #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Fool quotes by Annie Barrows

#137. My sister is no fool and she is not tender-hearted," I said. "My sister fights for her home, and takes what risks she must. That is why I put myself before her today - why I would not let you have her. My sister burns, and she does not burn for you. #Quote by E.K. Johnston

Fool quotes by Carl Panzram
#139. If you think that you can stop crime by catching us, locking us up, punishing us by brutal treatment, hanging or electrocuting us, sterilizing or castrating us, then you are a fool for thinking that way. That only makes bad matters worse. #Quote by Carl Panzram

Fool quotes by Honore De Balzac
#142. The pleasures of love proceed successively from a distich to a quatrain, from a quatrain to a sonnet, from a sonnet to a ballad, from a ballad to an ode, from an ode to a cantata, and from a cantata to a dithyramb. A husband who begins with the dithyramb is a fool. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Fool quotes by Vincent Edwards
#143. When you make a mistake. You can do a little song and dance, put on a little show and have everyone laugh it off.

Personally speaking... I don't help no one make a fool out of you. #Quote by Vincent Edwards

Fool quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#145. What would you do if there were no way you could fail? If you were 10 times smarter than the rest of the world? Create two timelines - 6 months and 12 months - and list up to five things you dream of having (including, but not limited to, material wants: house, car, clothing, etc.), being (be a great cook, be fluent in Chinese, etc.), and doing (visiting Thailand, tracing your roots overseas, racing ostriches, etc.) in that order. If you have difficulty identifying what you want in some categories, as most will, consider what you hate or fear in each and write down the opposite. Do not limit yourself, and do not concern yourself with how these things will be accomplished. For now, it's unimportant. This is an exercise in reversing repression. Be sure not to judge or fool yourself. If you really want a Ferrari, don't put down solving world hunger out of guilt. #Quote by Timothy Ferriss

You realize, even if all your assumptions are correct-even then, you still have to steal the world's most coveted sword from the world's safest place then be pursued by the ultimate hunter until you reach the heart of an enemy country in the middle of a war in which any side will happily kill you as a traitor, a spy, a wytch, or all three?"

Fool quotes by Anton Chekhov
#151. You see and hear that they lie," said Ivan Ivanovitch, turning over on the other side, "and they call you a fool for putting up with their lying. You endure insult and humiliation, and dare not openly say that you are on the side of the honest and the free, and you lie and smile yourself; and all that for the sake of a crust of bread, for the sake of a warm corner, for the sake of a wretched little worthless rank in the service. No, one can't go on living like this. #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Fool quotes by Rick Heinrichs
#152. You certainly can't be a perfect person, coming up with the 100% correct solution, all the time. It's just a combination of a chain of good decisions that comes up with a successful product or a successful film. That's what you hope for. But, nothing about the system is 100% fool proof. #Quote by Rick Heinrichs

Fool quotes by Philip Pullman
#155. Waste of time," said the leper. "There's a dozen or more beggars who come here every day, pretending to be cripples, hiring themselves out to the holy men. A couple of drachmas and they'll swear they've been crippled or blind for years then stage a bloody miraculous recovery. Holy men? Healers? Don't make me laugh."
"But this man is different," said Christ.
"I remember him," said the blind man. "Jesus. He come here on the sabbath, like a fool. The priests wouldn't let him heal anyone on sabbath. He should've known that."
"But he did heal someone," said the lame man. "Old Hiram. You remember that. He told him to take up his bed and walk."
"Bloody rubbish," said the blind man. "Hiram went as far as the temple gate, then he lay down and went on begging. Old Sarah told me. He said what was the use of taking his living away? Begging was the only thing he knew how to do. You and your blether about goodness," he said, turning to Christ, "where's the goodness in throwing an old man out into the street without a trade, without a home, without a penny? Eh? That Jesus is asking too much of people."
"But he was good," said the lame man. "I don't care what you say. You could feel it, you could see it in his eyes."
"I never saw it," said the blind man. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Fool quotes by Joseph Conrad
#156. I take it, no fool ever made a bargain for his soul with the devil; the fool is too much of a fool, or the devil too much of a devil - I don't know which. Or you may be such a thunderingly exalted creature as to be altogether deaf and blind to anything but heavenly sights and sounds. Then the earth for you is only a standing place - and whether to be like this is your loss or your gain I won't pretend to say. But most of us are neither one nor the other. The earth for us is a place to live in, where we must put up with sights, with sounds, with smells, too, by Jove! - breathe dead hippo, so to speak, and not be contaminated. #Quote by Joseph Conrad

Fool quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#164. The situation that has not its duty, its ideal, was never yet occupied by man. Yes, here, in this poor, miserable, hampered, despicable actual, wherein thou even now standest, here or nowhere is thy ideal; work it out therefrom, and, working, believe, live, be free. Fool! the ideal is in thyself. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle

Fool quotes by Mikhail Lermontov
#166. Passions are merely ideas in their initial stage. They are the property of youth, and anyone who expects to feel their thrill throughout his life is a fool. Tranquil rivers often begin as roaring waterfalls, but no river leaps and foams all the way to the sea. Tranquility, however, is often a sign of great, if hidden, power. Intensity and depth of feeling and thought preclude wild outbursts of passion; in sorrow and joy the soul takes careful stock of every situation, and sees that so it must be. #Quote by Mikhail Lermontov

Fool quotes by Michelle Hodkin
#170. Noah had seen me scarred and broken, dirty and limp, covered in blood and wearing someone else's smile. He didn't cringe or flinch or hide. He knew who I was, he'd seen what I'd done, and he knew what I would do to him someday too. But he was still here. I would be a fool to let him go, and I was many things - a liar, a criminal, a murderer - but I was not a fool. #Quote by Michelle Hodkin
Fool quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#171. And what about your brother, Agus? Will he be entertaining us with his pipes?"

"Agg," Shanks rasped, wrinkling his nose. "I didn't tell you? He ain't with us no more." A heavy fist slammed on the arm of the Viidun's chair as he growled, "The idiot went off and got himself killed!"

"What?" Derian and Eena replied in unison, both horrified by the news.

"You heard me!" Shanks bellowed. "The crazy fool should've known when to duck. He died in a bloody challenge with some brainless Deramptium! A downright disgraceful way to die! I'm ashamed to say he was my brother!"

"That's a little harsh, isn't it?" Eena muttered, mostly speaking to Derian.

"What was that?" the Viidun demanded.

Derian whispered a hush to Eena. Addressing Shanks, he expressed their condolences. "We are truly sorry for your loss. Your brother will be sorely missed. On the other hand, we look forward to welcoming you and your crew aboard the Kemeniroc." Derian held up his right hand, extending his thumb and two adjoining fingers. "Strength, truth, and honor, friend," he said, ending their conversation.

"Strength, truth, and honor," Shanks repeated.

The screen went black. The captain turned to Eena who was still in shock.

"You have to understand," he explained, "the Viiduns are a fiercely competitive people with proud, warring ways. Their culture doesn't call for much sympathy, especially when it appears one of their #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich

Fool quotes by Alfred Doblin
#174. Next-door a baker's apprentice with his wife, an employee in a printing-shop, she has inflammation of the ovaries. Wonder what those two get out of life? Well, first of all, they get each other, then last Sunday a vaudeville and a film, then this or that club meeting and a visit to his parents. Nothing else? Well now, don't drop dead, sir. Add to that nice weather, bad weather, country picnics, standing in front of the stove, eating breakfast and so on. And what more do you get, you, captain, general, jockey, whoever you are? Don't fool yourself. #Quote by Alfred Doblin
Fool quotes by Liu Cixin
#175. Take those frauds who practice pseudoscience - do you know who they're most afraid of?"

"Scientists, of course."

"No. Many of the best scientists can be fooled by pseudoscience and sometimes devote their lives to it. But pseudoscience is afraid of one particular type of people who are very hard to fool: stage magicians. In fact, many pseudoscience hoaxes were exposed by stage magicians. #Quote by Liu Cixin
Fool quotes by Vanora Bennett
#176. There's blood pounding through the Duke's head.
Knighthood is glory, he's thinking, not just grace in the saddle and at swordplay, but courage enough to give your life to defend what you hold dear. A noble reward, for noble men. A badge of honour.
He'd never ennoble a merchant. Even Chaucer, whom he admires, but knows to be a fool on a battlefield. Not Chaucer's fault, that; just his merchant blood.
Knighthood's not for the likes of these people; for Madame Perrers' brood. He thought she knew her place. But she's overreached herself; she's as grasping as the rest of them, after all. Do these people think they can buy or steal everything? #Quote by Vanora Bennett

If you cannot understand my argument, and declare "It's Greek to me", you are quoting Shakespeare; if you claim to be more sinned against than sinning, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you recall your salad days, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you act more in sorrow than in anger; if your wish is farther to the thought; if your lost property has vanished into thin air, you are quoting Shakespeare; if you have ever refused to budge an inch or suffered from green-eyed jealousy, if you have played fast and loose, if you have been tongue-tied, a tower of strength, hoodwinked or in a pickle, if you have knitted your brows, made a virtue of necessity, insisted on fair play, slept not one wink, stood on ceremony, danced attendance (on your lord and master), laughed yourself into stitches, had short shrift, cold comfort or too much of a good thing, if you have seen better days or lived in a fool's paradise -why, be that as it may, the more fool you , for it is a foregone conclusion that you are (as good luck would have it) quoting Shakespeare; if you think it is early days and clear out bag and baggage, if you think it is high time and that that is the long and short of it, if you believe that the game is up and that truth will out even if it involves your own flesh and blood, if you lie low till the crack of doom because you suspect foul play, if you have your teeth set on edge (at one fell swoop) without rhyme or reason, then - to give the devil his due - if the truth were known (f #Quote by Bernard Levin

Fool quotes by Chogyam Trungpa
#182. Acknowledging foolishness is a very powerful and important experience. We could almost say that being willing to be a fool is one of the first wisdoms. The phenomenal world can be perceived and seen proprerly if we see it from the perspective of being a fool. There is very little distance between being a fool and being wise; they are extremely close. When we are really, truly foolish, when we actually acknowledge our foolishness, then we are way ahead. We are not even in the process of becoming wise - we are already wise. #Quote by Chogyam Trungpa

Fool quotes by Thomas Boston
#192. What an honourable thing is it to be fishers of men! How great an honour shouldst thou esteem it, to be a catcher of souls! We are workers together with God, says the apostle. If God has ever so honoured thee, O that thou knewest it, that thou mightst bless his holy name, that ever made such a poor fool as thee to be a co-worker with him. God has owned thee to do good to those who were before caught. O my soul, bless thou the Lord. Lord, what am I, or what is my father's house, that thou hast brought me to this? #Quote by Thomas Boston

Fool quotes by Gore Vidal

Fool quotes by Kate Quinn
#196. You think there are no idiots in the intelligence business, that your superiors are all brilliant men who understand the game? [...] This business is rife with idiots. They play with lives and they play badly, and when people like you die as a result, they shrug and as 'Risks have to be taken in wartime.' You'd really march yourself into a firing squad for that kind of fool? #Quote by Kate Quinn
Fool quotes by William Shakespeare

Good Kate; I am a gentleman. #Quote by William Shakespeare

Fool quotes by Mary Lee Settle
