Killing quotes by Gemma Files
#2. Morrow's rush of disgust, temporary as it might prove, had nothing to do with the truths-turned-insults flung out. No. What riled Morrow ran far deeper - was the sheer perversity of Chess's own nature, that unbreakable wilfulness he'd always revered in himself, as sign and source of his own freedom. His stark refusal ever to be bound, to obey aught but his own whim and want.

Because while he could walk free and hold a gun Chess Pargeter answered to no man - no man, no law, no damn body, motherfucker. No ideal, no cause, no force but sheer chaos, bound and determined to move unimpeded and burn for the sake of burning. To never submit himself to ghost or hex or priest or even God, 'less he damn well wanted to.

No man except Ash Rook, that was - for a time. And after this last betrayal, from now on... not even him.

'Course not, Morrow's anger spoke back, unimpressed by Chess's well-tuned inner litany. That's 'cause you're nothing but a brat who never grew up - a skillet-hopping little hot-pants who knows everything 'bout killing and nothing at all 'bout living. Who spits on friendship, duty and honour not 'cause he's above them, so much as 'cause he don't know what they even mean - same way you don't really grasp how anything's real, 'cept if you want it, or it hurts you. And that's why you ended up givin' everything you had to a man who skinned you alive, then left you stranded down in Hell - 'cause he was what you wanted, and Christ forbid Ches #Quote by Gemma Files
Killing quotes by Beth Revis
#3. It's not knowing that's killing me. Not knowing if there's a chance that something can change, not knowing if there's hope at all. #Quote by Beth Revis
Killing quotes by Grady Hendrix
#4. Isn't that how every serial killer gets away with it for so long?" Patricia asked. "Everyone ignores the little things and Ted Bundy keeps killing women until finally someone does what they should have done in the first place and connects the little things that didn't add up, but by then it's too late. #Quote by Grady Hendrix
Killing quotes by Katie Reus
#5. You're sleeping here?" He'd originally planned to just cuff her to him but now she'd proved the cuffs were useless and she didn't seem to be going anywhere.
"Well, I'm not sleeping on the floor. Unless you're worried about me killing you in your sleep? #Quote by Katie Reus
Killing quotes by Steve Kluger
#6. Romance isn't just about roses or killing dragons or sailing a kayak around the world. It's also about chocolate chip cookies and sharing The Grateful Dead and James Taylor with me in the middle of the night, and believing me when I say that you could be bigger than both of them put together, and not making fun of me for straightening out my french fries or pointing my shoelaces in the same direction, and letting me pout when I don't get my own way, and pretending that if I play "Flower Drum Song" one more time you won't throw me and the record out the window #Quote by Steve Kluger
Killing quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#7. I picked my way through the corpses to another Illyrian.
Then another. And another.
Some I knew. Some I didn't. Still the killing field stretched onward under the sky.
Mile after mile. A kingdom of the rotting dead.
And still I looked. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Killing quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#8. The environmentalists say capitalism is killing our oceans, air, land, and forests. Capitalists argue that they provide food, fuel, and building materials for a growing world. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Killing quotes by Warren Ellis
#9. By four o'clock, I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Killing quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#10. I shook my head. 'Killing isn't woman's work,' I said. 'Why not?' she asked. 'We give life, can't we take it too? #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Killing quotes by Frantz Fanon
#11. Once their rage explodes, they recover their lost coherence, they experience self-knowledge through reconstruction of themselves; from afar we see their war as the triumph of barbarity; but it proceeds on its own to gradually emancipate the fighter and progressively eliminates the colonial darkness inside and out. As soon as it begins it is merciless. Either one must remain terrified or become terrifying - which means surrendering to the dissociations of a fabricated life or conquering the unity of one's native soil. When the peasants lay hands on a gun, the old myths fade, and one by one the taboos are overturned: a fighter's weapon is his humanity. For in the first phase of the revolt killing is a necessity: killing a European is killing two birds with one stone, eliminating in one go oppressor and oppressed: leaving one man dead and the other man free; #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Killing quotes by Sara Celi
#12. Can't you see what's happening? They're killing everyone. They're killing anyone. #Quote by Sara Celi
Killing quotes by Svetlana Alexievich
#13. Well, I admit it. I had the greatest respect for the Afghan people, even while I was shooting and killing them. I still do. You could even say I love them. I like their songs and prayers, as peaceful and timeless as their mountains. #Quote by Svetlana Alexievich
Killing quotes by Newt Gingrich
#14. In the middle of a recession no tax increase is justified because it kills jobs, and any tax increase is a job-killing measure and should be defeated. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Killing quotes by Steve McHugh
#15. You interrogated a man at Hades's compound a year ago. I heard what you did to him. I can't have dead prisoners here; we have to be better than that." "I didn't kill him," I objected, remembering the murderous bastard who'd tried to kill Hades before he'd been caught. Unfortunately we hadn't stopped him from killing his own wife and children. "You took his hands. You know he killed himself in our jail?" "Yeah, well, I'm not going to kill anyone. Just talk. They wanted to kill me back in Southampton, now they want to take me to talk. I'd like to know why. And I heard your prisoner died by getting into a fight with another prisoner." "He walked up to a cave troll and kicked him. The troll tore his head off and threw it fifty feet away. What would you call that?" "Suicide by troll. That's new. #Quote by Steve McHugh
Killing quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
#16. But now I know that there is no killing A thing like Love, for it laughs at Death. There is no hushing, there is no stilling That which is part of your life and breath. You may bury it deep, and leave behind you The land, the people that knew your slain; It will push the sods from its grave, and find you On wastes of water or desert plain. #Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Killing quotes by A.S. King
#17. Not living your life is just like killing yourself, only it takes longer. #Quote by A.S. King
Killing quotes by Sharon Bolton
#18. Every time Tom was tempted to turn back, he made himself think of his brother. Joe, who he sometimes thought had been sent to earth to make his life miserable, who had been a complete pain from the day he was born, who was always getting his own way and who he fantasized about killing at least once a week. Joe, who he really didn't think he could live the rest of his life without. #Quote by Sharon Bolton
Killing quotes by Julia Fine
#19. There is no better show of human power than to be a proud purveyor of death, to attempt slaughter. To kill for sport, for indulgence, speaks to the infinite depths of human desire, an innate need to demonstrate the irreversible, to have lasting effect. #Quote by Julia Fine
Killing quotes by Susan Ee
#20. Paige is at the aerie." Raffe gives me a don't-you-dare look. "You mean the place where I barely got you out alive because they were killing every human they could get their hands on?" "Thank you, by the way. #Quote by Susan Ee
Killing quotes by John Angell James
#21. We should never forget that our time is among the talents for which we must give account at the judgment of God. Time being not the least precious of these, will be required with a strictness proportionate to its value. Let us tremble at this idea, as well we may. We must be tried not only for what we have done - but for what we had time to do, yet neglected to do it. Not only for the hours spent in sin - but for those wasted in idleness. Let us beware of that mode of spending time which some call killing it, for this murder,like others, will not always be concealed - the hours destroyed in secret will appear when we least expect it, to the unspeakable terror and amazement of our souls - they arise from the dead, and fly away to heaven, where they might have carried better news, and there tell sad tales of us, which we shall be sure to hear of again, when we hold up our hands at the bar, and they shall come as so many swift witnesses against us! #Quote by John Angell James
Killing quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#22. Busyness is like sin: kill it, or it will be killing you. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Killing quotes by Henry Miller
#23. To imagine a new world is to live it daily, each thought, each glance, each step, each gesture, killing and recreating, death always a step in advance. To spit on the past is not enough. To proclaim the future is not enough. One must act as if the past were dead and the future unrealizable. #Quote by Henry Miller
Killing quotes by Philippa Gregory
#24. 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
Killing quotes by David Benatar
#25. It is not the case that one can create new people on the assumption that if they are not pleased to have come into existence they can simply kill themselves. Once somebody has come into existence and attachments with that person have been formed, suicide can cause the kind of pain that makes the pain of childlessness mild by comparison. Somebody contemplating suicide knows (or should know) this. This places an important obstacle in the way of suicide. One's life may be bad, but one must consider what affect ending it would have on one's family and friends. There will be times when life has become so bad that it is unreasonable for the interests of the loved ones in having the person alive to outweigh that person's interests in ceasing to exist. When this is true will depend in part on particular features of the person for whom continued life is a burden. Different people are able to bear different magnitudes of burden. It may even be indecent for family members to expect that person to continue living. On other occasions one's life may be bad but not so bad as to warrant killing oneself and thereby making the lives of one's family and friends still much worse than they already are. #Quote by David Benatar
Killing quotes by Ray Davies
#26. A man has one, a cat has nine, and in between it's killing time. #Quote by Ray Davies
Killing quotes by Jimmy Carter
#27. War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn to live together in peace by killing each other's children. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Killing quotes by James S.A. Corey
#28. Epithets like that are an attempt to dehumanize a group so that you won't feel as bad about killing them. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Killing quotes by Victoria Finlay
#29. The probable reason that nobody at Mikimoto wanted a writer to go to the pearl farms of Ago…was because something terrible was happening in that bay. Since the 1990s, pollution has been pouring into the water, partly as a result of careless husbandry but also from untreated sewage from all the hotels that bring people in to enjoy the 'unspoiled wilderness'. No wonder the Japanese farmers were pulling out their oysters after just nine months: any longer than that and they risked losing most of their stock to the effluent in the water - it was killing the akoya oysters… Similar things are happening in Lake Biwa… Thanks to the pollution in the area, production at Lake Biwa has now declined almost to the point of nonexistence. #Quote by Victoria Finlay
Killing quotes by Noam Chomsky
#30. Suppose that, say, China established military bases in Colombia to carry out chemical warfare in Kentucky and North Carolina to destroy this lethal crop [tobacco] that is killing huge numbers of Chinese. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Killing quotes by Eli Wallach
#31. If you work for a living, why do you kill yourself working? #Quote by Eli Wallach
Killing quotes by David R. Brower
#32. The risk presented by these lethal wastes is like no other risk, and we should not be expected to accept it or to project it into the future in order for manufacturers and utilities to make a dollar killing now. #Quote by David R. Brower
Killing quotes by Kirby Larson
#33. I came here thinking I was going to win this war and come on home in no time at all. Now I think I'll never leave this mud and cold and misery. I know you expect your old pal to be full of humor, but my best buddy died this morning. I was not twenty yards from him. In all the training, they never told us about the smell of death.
For the first time, I was not so confident of coming home. Not so confident of anything. I always bragged about killing some Germans. Killing is nothing to brag about. Nothing at all. #Quote by Kirby Larson
Killing quotes by John Pugsley
#34. In Sherman's famous march through Georgia, his soldiers left a swath of death and destruction, destroying crops, burning homes and killing civilians. Sherman himself acknowledged that only 20% of the destruction inflicted by his invasion was inflicted on military objectives. Civilian non-combatants, essentially innocents, suffered 80% of the losses. #Quote by John Pugsley
Killing quotes by Homer
#35. And overpowered by memory
Both men gave way to grief. Priam wept freely
For man - killing Hector, throbbing, crouching
Before Achilles' feet as Achilles wept himself,
Now for his father, now for Patroclus once again
And their sobbing rose and fell throughout the house. #Quote by Homer
Killing quotes by Tyler  King
#36. You've always had my heart."
She looked up, biting her lip and failing to hide her sweet smirk. "That was the cheesiest line I've ever heard."
"That? That's what you tell me when I profess my undying love for you? Fuck, Punky. You're killing me."
She laughed, grabbing two fistfuls of my hair and shaking my head. "I love you. #Quote by Tyler King
Killing quotes by Joe Perry
#37. I'm glad that I never ended up killing myself, though I came close more times than I would like to admit. #Quote by Joe Perry
Killing quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#38. I admit there are some beliefs upon which I do pass judgment and this is one of them: any belief that calls for the enslavement, maiming, or killing of another is corrupt, primitive, and never divinely inspired. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Killing quotes by Jalal Talabani
#39. We need to make a distinction between misled Iraqis, those who believe that they are carrying weapons to liberate Iraq from what they call occupation, and criminal gangs that came from outside and wants to wage a deadly war on the Iraqi people, killing women and children in mosques and churches. #Quote by Jalal Talabani
Killing quotes by Kobayashi Issa
#40. All the time I pray to Buddha I keep on killing mosquitoes. #Quote by Kobayashi Issa
Killing quotes by Dan Wells
#41. The actual words I used," I said, "were that I followed strict rules to make sure I didn't do anything wrong. It seems like you'd be pretty happy about that, but instead you're yelling at me. This is why I need therapy."
"'Happy' is not a son who has to follow rules to keep himself from killing people," she shot back. "'Happy' is not a psychologist telling me that my son is a sociopath. 'Happy' is - "
"He said I was a sociopath?" That was kind of cool. I'd always suspected, but it was nice to have an official diagnosis. #Quote by Dan Wells
Killing quotes by Julia Quinn
#42. Eloise?' Phillip asked, his brows shooting up when they both heard someone bellow her name.
She felt the blood drain from her body. Positively felt it, *knew* it had happened, even though she couldn't see it pooling about her feet. There was no way she could survive a moment such as this, no way she could make it through without killing someone, preferably someone to whom she was quite closely related. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Killing quotes by Sargent Shriver
#43. Jews have suffered persecution from misguided Christians who tortured the Jews for their part in killing Christ. These Christians forgot that Christ died because of the sins of all men. #Quote by Sargent Shriver
Killing quotes by Osama Bin Laden
#44. We are in favour of armed jihad only against those infidel countries, which are killing innocent Muslim men, women, and children just because they are Muslims. Supporting the US act is the need of some Muslim countries and the compulsion of others. However, they should think as to what will remain of their religious and moral position if they support the attack of the Christians and the Jews on a Muslim country like Afghanistan. #Quote by Osama Bin Laden
Killing quotes by Terry Pratchett
#45. It is forbidden to fight on the Killing Ground," he said, and paused while he considered the sense of this. "You know what I mean anyway ... #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Killing quotes by Ricky Gervais
#46. My favourite shows of the year are House of Cards, the Scandinavian versions of The Killing and The Bridge, and my guilty pleasure is everything MMA. Ultimate Fighter is amazing. #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Killing quotes by Damian Marley
#47. Did you know the pen is stronger than the knife: they can kill you once but they can't kill you twice. #Quote by Damian Marley
Killing quotes by Pete Wentz
#48. I wonder if killing yourself is the only thing you can control in your entire life, and that's why it's a sin. Because you're beating God at his own game. #Quote by Pete Wentz
Killing quotes by Jason Versey
#49. Recognize your failures when they happen but don't dwell on them. Instead, focus on the successes you have had in your life. If you've done it once, you can do it again. Build on that. Letting thoughts of past failures creep into your mindset are nothing but dream killing distractions. #Quote by Jason Versey
Killing quotes by Richard Dawkins
#50. Should we then not expect lions to refrain from killing antelopes, 'for the good of the mammals'? #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Killing quotes by Jose Saramago
#51. The best way of killing a rose is to force it open when it is still only the promise of a bud. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Killing quotes by Frans De Waal
#52. If both parties have a stake in the other, the chances of them killing each other are going to be reduced. #Quote by Frans De Waal
Killing quotes by Nashoda Rose
#53. Maybe. But I was always fond of killing assholes. And you're at the top of the list. #Quote by Nashoda Rose
Killing quotes by Mindy Kaling
#54. And the stairs. Oh, the stairs. The staircase in our third-floor walk-up was the steepest, hardest, metal-est staircase I have ever encountered in my life. It was a staircase for killing someone and making it seem like an accident. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Killing quotes by Guy De Maupassant
#55. Killing is decreed by law but nature loves eternal youth. Whatever she does, however unconscious and unfeeling the act, she seems to cry out: 'Quick! Quick! Quick!' And the more she destroys, the more she is renewed. #Quote by Guy De Maupassant
Killing quotes by Ransom Riggs
#56. I couldn't stop myself, so I thought about all the bad things and I fed it and fed it until I was crying so hard I had to gasp for breath between sobs. I thought about how my great-grandparents had starved to death. I thought about their wasted bodies being fed to incinerators because people they didn't know hated them. I thought about how the children who lived in this house had been burned up and blown apart because a pilot who didn't care pushed a button. I thought about how my grandfather's family had been taken from him, and how because of that my dad grew up feeling like he didn't have a dad, and now I had acute stress and nightmares and was sitting alone in a falling-down house and crying hot, stupid tears all over my shirt. All because of a seventy-year-old hurt that had somehow been passed down to me like some poisonous heirloom, and monsters I couldn't fight because they were all dead, beyond killing or punishing or any kind of reckoning. At least my grandfather had been able to join the army and go fight them. What could I do? #Quote by Ransom Riggs
Killing quotes by David Eddings
#57. The policeman recognized me, but I suppose that's only natural. Silk was going to kill him, but I said no."
"Why?" Beldin asked bluntly.
"We were in the middle of a busy street for one thing. Killing somebody's the sort of thing you ought to do in private, wouldn't you say? #Quote by David Eddings
Killing quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#58. Remember the three rules of vampire hunting. One: Never, ever look them in the eyes. Two: Never, ever give up your cross. Three: Aim for the head and heart. Even with silver ammo, it won't be a killing blow anywhere else." I felt like a kindergarten teacher sending her kiddies off to a hostile playground. "Don't panic if you get bitten. The bite can be cleansed. As long as they don't mesmerize you with their eyes, you can still fight. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Killing quotes by Joseph Boyden
#59. During World War I the Canadians were the shock troops. In many historical cases, Canadians have been very proficient at killing, and doing what we have to in order to survive. But no one wants to acknowledge that fact. #Quote by Joseph Boyden
Killing quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#60. Jesus was the only One that ever raised the dead," The Misfit continued, "and He shouldn't have done it. He shown everything off balance. If He did what He said, then it's nothing for you to do but throw away everything and follow Him, and if He didn't, then it's nothing for you to do but enjoy the few minutes you got left the best way you can by killing somebody or burning down his house or doing some other meanness to him. No pleasure but meanness," he said and his voice had become almost a snarl. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Killing quotes by Maya Banks
#61. I'm listening now, Kelly," he forced out. "Tell me what happened. I'll believe you. I swear."

But he knew. He already knew. So much of that day was replaying over and over in his head and suddenly he was able to see so clearly what he'd refused to see before.

And it was killing him.

His brother had lied to him after all. Not just lied but he'd carefully orchestrated the truth and twisted it so cleverly that Ryan had been completely deceived.

Then she turned, her beautiful eyes haunted, defeated. "It doesn't matter if you believe me anymore," she whispered. "You wouldn't believe me when it mattered. He tried to rape me. He assaulted me. He touched me. He hurt me. And when I fought him off and told him that I would tell you what he'd done, he told me he'd make sure you never believed a word of any of it.

"And you know what the funny thing is? I told him he was wrong. I told him that you l-loved me and that you would make him pay for hurting me."

She broke off as another sob racked her.

Oh God. Oh God. What had he done? #Quote by Maya Banks
Killing quotes by Louise Fletcher
#62. Life had stopped for her a long time ago. She was so out of touch with her feelings that she had no joy in her life and no concept of the fact that she could be wrong. She delivered her care of her insane patients in a killing manner, but she was convinced she was right. #Quote by Louise Fletcher
Killing quotes by Marsha Blackburn
#63. Here in Tennessee, instead of the big spending, big government, job killing agenda of the Obama Administration, Tennesseans have tightened their belts and are struggling to find jobs that will enable them to support their families. #Quote by Marsha Blackburn
Killing quotes by Woody Allen
#64. Why does man kill? He kills for food. And not only food: Frequently there must be a beverage. #Quote by Woody Allen
Killing quotes by Michael Grant
#65. But if all they did was kill time, time would end up killing them. #Quote by Michael Grant
Killing quotes by Henry Miller
#66. Boris has just given me a summary of his views. He is a weather prophet. The weather will continue bad, he says. There will be more calamities, more death, more despair. Not the slightest indication of a change anywhere. The cancer of time is eating us away. Our heroes have killed themselves, or are killing themselves. The hero, then, is not Time, but Timelessness. We must get in step, a lock step, toward the prison of death. There is no escape. The weather will not change. #Quote by Henry Miller
Killing quotes by Hal Turner
#67. I advocate the use of force to rescue Terri Schiavo from being starved to death.
I further advocate the killing of anyone who interferes with such rescue. #Quote by Hal Turner
Killing quotes by Janelle Taylor
#68. Does killing become easier, as natural as a reflex?" she pressed. "Not to me, I've set out to intentionally take only one man's life." He flattened his back against the cool stones, bending his knee and placing the bottom of his boot on the post near his other knee. He remained impassive as he chewed on a blade of sweetgrass. "Who? Why?" she asked when he didn't expound. "Perhaps I'll tell you one day, if you hang around." He glanced at her, a half-grin curling up one side of his inviting mouth.

Killing quotes by Terry Pratchett
#69. I kill in my own time," he said. "In any case, killing unconscious people isn't right."
"I can't think of a more opportune time," said the Loremaster. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Killing quotes by NoViolet Bulawayo
#70. That crown on her head is very heavy, that's why she is smiling like that, smiling like she just ate a whole bunch of unripe guavas. It's heavy because it's made of gold, Godknows says.
I thought crowns were made of thorns. I saw a picture of it in the Bible, when they were killing Jesus, Sbho says. #Quote by NoViolet Bulawayo
Killing quotes by Rachel Hawkins
#71. Izzy was sitting cross-legged on the couch, a paper-back book in her hands. She didn't look up when we came in, and I wondered what she was reading that had her so absorbed. Monster Killing for Beginners, probably. #Quote by Rachel Hawkins
Killing quotes by Rebecca Manley Pippert
#72. We tend to be taken aback by the thought that God could be angry. how can a deity who is perfect and loving ever be angry? ... We take pride in our tolerance of the excesses of others. So what is God's problem? ... But love detests what destroys the beloved. Real love stands against the deception, the lie, the sin that destroys. Nearly a century ago the theologian E.H. Glifford wrote: 'Human love here offers a true analogy: the more a father loves his son, the more he hates in him the drunkard, the liar, the traitor.' ... Anger isn't the opposite of love. Hate is, and the final form of hate is indifference ... How can a good God forgive bad people without compromising himself? Does he just play fast and loose with the facts? 'Oh, never mind ... boys will be boys'. Try telling that to a survivor of the Cambodian 'killing fields' or to someone who lost an entire family in the Holocaust. No. To be truly good one has to be outraged by evil and implacably hostile to injustice. #Quote by Rebecca Manley Pippert
Killing quotes by Judith Spencer
#73. For its survival, the satanic cult demanded secrecy and obedience while it made brutality, even killing, appropriate. Denial and disavowal were inevitable responses to required behaviors so bizarre as to seem unreal, even to those who enacted them. What they could not deny or disavow, they could distort. They could blame the victims, who deserved to die for fighting or crying or for failing to fight or cry. They found encouragement for such a stance in a general culture accustomed to blaming victims for their misfortunes, and in specific contact with child victims eager to blame themselves. By believing that victims had a choice when there was none, they could see victims as culpable. They could even see the deaths as right and purposeful in the nobility of sacrifice. #Quote by Judith Spencer
Killing quotes by Joseph Conrad
#74. Soul! If anybody had ever struggled with a soul, I am the man. And I wasn't arguing with a lunatic either. Believe me or not, his intelligence was perfectly clear - concentrated, it is true, upon himself with horrible intensity, yet clear; and therein was my only chance - barring, of course, the killing him there and then, which wasn't so good, on account of unavoidable noise. But his soul was mad. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Killing quotes by Carlos Wallace
#75. We live in, arguably, the most developed, powerful country in the world, yet we are still unable to find a way to keep corrupt cops from killing black men. Why is that? #Quote by Carlos Wallace
Killing quotes by Laini Taylor
#76. What are we fighting for? What are we killing for? What do you see when you look into the future? #Quote by Laini Taylor
Killing quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#77. For a long time afterwards, in prison, when moral change took place in me, I thought of that moment, recalled what I could of it, and considered it. I remembered for an instant, before the action I had a terrible consciousness I was killing a defenseless woman, my wife! #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Killing quotes by Richard Henry Lee
#78. To say that a bad government must be established for fear of anarchy is really saying that we should kill ourselves for fear of dying. #Quote by Richard Henry Lee
Killing quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#79. The dying tapers off now and then, but the War is still killing lots and lots of people. Only right now it is killing them in more subtle ways. Often in ways that are too complicated, even for us, at this level, to trace. But the right people are dying, just as they do when armies fight. The ones who stand up, in Basic, in the middle of the machine-gun pattern. The ones who do not have faith in their Sergeants. The ones who slip and show a moment's weakness to the Enemy. These are the ones the War cannot use, and so they die. The right ones survive. The others, it's said, even know they have a short life expectancy. But they persist in acting the way that they do. Nobody knows why. Wouldn't it be nice if we could eliminate them completely? Then no one would have to be killed in the War. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Killing quotes by Jim Brown
#80. Everybody does good things, but I'm talking about making major changes in the educational system that would impact an entire race. I'm talking about stopping these young gang members from killing one another. I'm talking about keeping prisons from overflowing. #Quote by Jim Brown
Killing quotes by M. Leighton
#81. So, what's it gonna be, boys? We've got a new bartender to audition.
Cheers go up all around me. Olivia's got a fan base already. She's gonna make me a killing. #Quote by M. Leighton
Killing quotes by Howard Zinn
#82. Another black woman, Margaret Wright, said she was not fighting for equality with men if it meant equality in the world of killing, the world of competition. "I don't want to compete on no damned exploitative level. I don't want to exploit nobody. . . . I want the right to be black and me. . . . #Quote by Howard Zinn
Killing quotes by Alexander Schmemann
#83. This world rejected Christ, refused to see in Him its own life and fulfillment. And since it has no other life but Christ, by rejecting and killing Christ the world condemned itself to death. Its only ultimate reality is death, and none of the secular eschatologies in which men still put their hope can have any force against the simple statement of Tolstoy: 'And after a stupid life there shall come a stupid death.' In its self-sufficiency the world and all that exists in it has no meaning. And as long as we live after the fashion of this world, as long, in other words, as we make our life an end in itself, no meaning and no goal can stand, for they are dissolved in death. It is only when we give up freely, totally, unconditionally, the self-sufficiency of our life, when we put all its meaning in Christ, that the 'newness of life' – which means a new possession of the world – is given to us. The world then truly becomes the sacrament of Christ's presence, the growth of the Kingdom and of life eternal. #Quote by Alexander Schmemann
Killing quotes by Jo Nesbo
#84. New; it had been lying there with all the other half-thought, half-chewed, half-dreamed ideas. The third chicken had been killed in the same way as Sylvia, with an electric cutting loop. He went to the place where the floorboards had absorbed the blood and crouched down. If the Snowman had killed the last chicken, why had he used the loop and not the hatchet? Simple. Because the hatchet had disappeared in the depths of the forest somewhere. So this must have happened after the murder. He had come all the way back here and slaughtered a chicken. But why? A kind of voodoo ritual? A sudden inspiration? Bullshit - this killing machine stuck to the #Quote by Jo Nesbo
Killing quotes by Karen Traviss
#85. People who wouldn't dream of drowning a puppy in a barrel full of water think nothing of killing a fish the same slow way. #Quote by Karen Traviss
Killing quotes by Vincent Okay Nwachukwu
#86. War is worthless, it renders the harmless helpless. What baseless reason could a headless-chicken leader advance to justify the heartless killing of the powerless? No battle is little. It can rattle all, from beetle to cattle. The only proof of mettle is unsettled scuttle because life is brittle. Everybody looks for somebody and nobody is safe knowing that anybody can be in a bloody mess. #Quote by Vincent Okay Nwachukwu
Killing quotes by Bruce Sterling
#87. We might be on the brink of an apocalypse if, instead of poor people with suicide bombs killing middle class guys, middle-class people with suicide bombs started killing rich guys. #Quote by Bruce Sterling
Killing quotes by Allynn Riggs
#88. You didn't have to look your enemy in the eye or take responsibility for their deaths or injuries with a killing light beam. Killing someone at such a distance required no courage, strength, or intelligence. #Quote by Allynn Riggs
Killing quotes by Mike Bond
#89. We sat bathed in luscious darkness, Casco Bay's thousand islands spread out before us like a diamond quilt. 'I don't get enough of this,' she said. #Quote by Mike Bond
Killing quotes by Gabriel Cousens M.D.
#90. Veganism is a brilliant approach for elevating human consciousness and avoiding the energy of death and degeneration associated with killing animals for food, which enters us when we eat their flesh and blood. #Quote by Gabriel Cousens M.D.
Killing quotes by Joyce Rachelle
#91. Oh you cut your hair! What happened? Are you going through a breakup or something?"

"My favorite character died. #Quote by Joyce Rachelle
Killing quotes by Warren Ellis
#92. On the evidence I have on hand at home, social media isn't killing our children. It isn't killing families, either, because the constant long bloody phone calls that parents complained to their teenagers about in decades past are gone. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Killing quotes by Chelsea Fine
#93. I don't think so, dude. Gabriel would kill me. And then Scarlet would kill me. And they could just keep on killing me over and over again because I don't ever die. Do you know how much that would suck? #Quote by Chelsea Fine
Killing quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#94. We should find ourselves committed to killing a great many people whom we now leave living ... A part of eugenic politics would finally land us in an extensive use of the lethal chamber. A great many people would have to be put out of existence simply because it wastes other people's time to look after them. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Killing quotes by Bill Bryson
#95. Sadly, although the source of much enjoyment, Ginger the pig progressed from hunting and killing chickens to lambs and, after a stab at my mother's ankles, was banished to the freezer before she developed a taste for small children. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Killing quotes by Suzy Kassem
#96. Killing in the name of religion defines someone who is ignorant and actually void of religion. God does not condone terror. To kill innocent people to make a political statement is like shooting a dove to say hunting is wrong. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Killing quotes by Queen Noor Of Jordan
#97. The killing of innocent people is a sin. #Quote by Queen Noor Of Jordan
Killing quotes by Oscar Romero
#98. Brothers, you came from our own people. You are killing your own brothers. Any human order to kill must be subordinate to the law of God, which says, 'Thou shalt not kill'. No soldier is obliged to obey an order contrary to the law of God. No one has to obey an immoral law. It is high time you obeyed your consciences rather than sinful orders. The church cannot remain silent before such an abomination ... In the name of God, in the name of this suffering people whose cry rises to heaven more loudly each day, I implore you, I beg you, I order you: stop the repression. #Quote by Oscar Romero
Killing quotes by Groucho Marx
#99. Years ago, I tried to top everybody, but I don't anymore. I realized it was killing conversation. When you're always trying for a topper you aren't really listening. It ruins communication #Quote by Groucho Marx

#100. Secret Minecraft Tricks 41-48 Who Turned Out The Lights -If you're in a room lit up only by lava, it's a good idea to place a few torches around before you extinguish it.

I Love Fishing -Since fish are unlimited in quantity, it's always a good time to go fishing.

Killing quotes by J.M. Robertson
#103. It was about that time [415 BCE] that the poet Diagoras of Melos was proscribed for atheism, he having declared that the non-punishment of a certain act of iniquity proved that there were no gods. It has been surmised, with some reason, that the iniquity in question was the slaughter of the Melians by the Athenians in 416 BCE, and the Athenian resentment in that case was personal and political rather than religious. For some time after 415 the Athenian courts made strenuous efforts to punish every discoverable case of impiety; and parodies of the Eleusinian mysteries were alleged against Alcibiades and others. Diagoras, who was further charged with divulging the Eleusinian and other mysteries, and with making firewood of an image of Herakles, telling the god thus to perform his thirteenth labour by cooking turnips, became thenceforth one of the proverbial atheists of the ancient world, and a reward of a silver talent was offered for killing him, and of two talents for his capture alive; despite which he seems to have escaped. #Quote by J.M. Robertson
Killing quotes by Joel Kinnaman
#104. I think for a lot of people that had seen me do 'Snabba Cash', after watching 'The Killing,' I think they got a sense that I could do different kinds of characters. #Quote by Joel Kinnaman
Killing quotes by Carl Sagan
#105. If chimpanzees have consciousness, if they are capable of abstractions, do they not have what until now has been described as 'human rights'? How smart does a chimp have to be before killing him constitutes murder? #Quote by Carl Sagan
Killing quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#106. You know, most people's pillow talk isn't about battle and killing, I said. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Killing quotes by John Dear
#107. In Yosemite, we see how everyone can inherit the earth. But that gift requires a change of heart, a new intention, a deliberate turning. From now on, we must go forward, back into the world of violence and war, to do our part to end the killing, the suffering, and the ongoing destruction of Mother Earth. Yosemite, along with all of creation, calls us to wake up, stand up, and stop the insane destruction of the earth before it's too late. #Quote by John Dear
Killing quotes by John Piper
#108. When it comes to killing my sin, I don't wait for the miracle, I act the miracle. #Quote by John Piper
Killing quotes by Compay Segundo
#109. Towns are suffering from all these things, we should unite until we are all satisfied, man cannot be killing each other as if we were animals, as if we had no culture; that is a lack of culture. #Quote by Compay Segundo
Killing quotes by Don Winslow
#110. Not in San Salvador, he thinks, where the shanty slums press against gleaming high-rises like the thatched huts of medieval peasants pressed against castle walls. Except these castle walls are patrolled by private security guards wielding automatic rifles and machine pistols. And at night, the guards venture out from the castle walls and ride through the villages ...and slaughter the peasants, leaving their bodies at crossroads and in the middle of village squares, and rape and kill women and execute children in front of their parents.

So the survivors will know their place.

It's a killing ground, Art thinks.

El Salvador.

The Savior, my ass. #Quote by Don Winslow
Killing quotes by Philip Pullman
#111. It comes from history. It comes from the record of the Inquisition, persecuting heretics and torturing Jews and all that sort of stuff; and it comes from the other side, too, from the Protestants burning the Catholics. It comes from the insensate pursuit of innocent and crazy old women, and from the Puritans in America burning and hanging the witches - and it comes not only from the Christian church but also from the Taliban. Every single religion that has a monotheistic god ends up by persecuting other people and killing them because they don't accept him. Wherever you look in history, you find that. It's still going on. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Killing quotes by Suzanna Hupp
#112. Let me make a point here, in case this isn't becoming extremely clear. My state has gun control laws. It did not keep Hennard from coming in and killing everybody! What it did do, was keep me from protecting my family! That's the only thing that cotton pickin' law did! OK! Understand that! That's ... that's so important! #Quote by Suzanna Hupp
Killing quotes by Victor Hugo

Killing quotes by Christina Hart
#114. I was holding on
to hurricane nights
and lit candles
and my acoustic guitar
resting in your hands.
I was holding on
to the sound of
your voice saying my name
and the peace I felt
with your arms
around me.
I was holding on
to documentaries in bed
and your beautiful eyes
closed as you sang
Rocket Man and all
the songs we never finished.
I was holding on
to our first text and
last phone call and
the plane ticket you
offered but never sent.
I was holding on
to our first Christmas
together
and the last few Christmas Eves
apart
and I've been thinking
we should be together.
we should be kissing
even if there
isn't any mistletoe
because if I have you
there' no reason to celebrate and
fuck, your lips were mine.
They were always supposed
to be mine.
I was holding on
to hope and banana pancakes
on Sundays.
I was holding on
to Main Street and
sunsets in Jersey.
I was holding on
to two streets
that separated us and
blizzards that couldn't
keep us apart.
I was holding on
to you.
I was holding on
to us.
And it was killing me. #Quote by Christina Hart
Killing quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#115. A king will say 'I killed thousands of people'. He is simply doing egoism; he is taking pleasure in taking credit of doership (garva ras). They were killed by those who were on the battle field. Why does the king needlessly take on the liability [of new karmic causes]? In doing so, those who did the killing are set free. The rule is that the liability falls upon the one doing egosim [of doerhip]. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan
Killing quotes by John Ringo
#116. Faith's like a goddess to the Marines, and she's actually good at her job, especially given she'd just finished seventh grade. Which is an important job. She does really important shit.

"Right now, you're just getting your head together. Like the pamphlet says, maybe you decide to help out. We can use people who know how to get shit done. Not just as military. I only took the Lieutenancy they offered cause I have to work with the Navy and Marines to get my job done and it helps. But there's lots of ways a guy with your background and work ethic and general get-it-done attitude could help. Problem being, even if you wanted to, right now the only reason the Marines haven't gotten together to kick the crap out of you is that they're too busy. When they get less busy or, for example, this evening when they break from killing zombies, I would not want to be in your shoes."

"So what is this?" Zumwald said. "A military dictatorship? Beatings for free?"

"Yeah," Isham said, looking at him as if he was nuts. "We're on ships. And they are all officially US Navy vessels. Even most of the dinky little yachts. The commanders, including this one, are all Navy officers, even if the ink is still wet on the commissions. And even if they weren't, captains of vessels at sea have a lot of legal control in any circumstances. By the way, I talked Captain Graham, boss of this boat, out of pressing charges against you for assault. Because you don't get how badly you f #Quote by John Ringo

Killing quotes by Paulo Coelho
#119. The World's a dangerous place. It doesn't matter where you are, your'e always at risk of being approached by people who have no scruples about attacking, destroying, killing. And we never learn how to defend ourselves. We're all in the hands of those powerful than us. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Killing quotes by Anna Banks
#120. We are not doing it for Jagen. We are doing it for our kind."
"We?" Rayna snaps. "What Gift do you have, Grom? Oh, that's right. You and Nalia get to stay safely behind while me and Galen and Emma drown an entire island."
Oh, heck no. "Um, I'm not killing anyone," I say, raising my hand. "Not humans, not Syrena."
"It's a good thing your Gift isn't deadly then, isn't it?" Rayna sneers. "I have an idea. You can give the humans their last meal. That would be special, wouldn't it?"
"How would you like to go without eating for a while?" I shoot back. I could use my Gift to send the fish away from her, or I could just bust all her teeth out. Maturity seems to be evaporating into the air. I wonder if her Gift includes pushing all my buttons in rapid-point-five seconds. But then, I know her animosity is really toward Grom, not me. All I'm doing is feeding her anxiety.
Galen tucks a tendril of my hair behind my ear. It's enough to distract me and he knows it. I give him a sour look for interfering, but he grins. "You don't have to kill anyone, angelfish. In fact, we need your help to save them." He seems to be telling me something with his eyes, but I'm not picking up on it. I'd love to blame it on the pain meds.
"Doesn't that kind of miss the point?" Rayna says.
"Of course not," Galen says. "Our objective is to rescue our kind, not kill the humans. We can do that without destroying them."
Everyone is all ears, but Galen is not ready to divulge #Quote by Anna Banks

Killing quotes by Tavis Smiley
#122. I'm talking about France and Germany and Italy and Spain - new friend Germany - and I love that story, how they lead the world in some things that the world needs leadership in. Amongst them we're the only ones without national healthcare. Can't go to a hospital and not worry about falling into bankruptcy. They go to university free. We're killing our students with debt. That scares me. #Quote by Tavis Smiley
Killing quotes by Nora Roberts
#123. Fine, you do that, and you tell them that at the very first opportunity, I'm coming down there and killing all of them. Mass murder. And after they're all dead, I'm going to kick the bodies around, dance on top of them, and sing a happy song. No jury will convict me. #Quote by Nora Roberts

#131. But what can be learned from trivia? A history of inventions reveals we made the gun silencer (1908) before air conditioning (1911), the kaleidoscope (1817) before Braille printing (1829), cocaine (1860) before penicillin (1929). It's a story about pleasure before usefulness, about ingenuity in killing before improving our everyday lives."

Killing quotes by Sherry Vaughn
#132. Silena Beauregard
She betrayed them all, thats what it seemed
But she never knew she was.
Luke made a promise, that she was saving lives
She never knew that she wasn't saving,
But killing
Some knew, that something was about to happen
A trick that ends in death
Some may have thought: Foolish Aphrodite girl. But,
In the end she died brave
In the end she showed her treachourous secret
In the end she saw Charlie
In the end she was a hero #Quote by Sherry Vaughn

track them down, kill them. Luckily, I was used to restraining myself, used to acting human even when I wasn't, and the human part of my brain reminded me that right now, preternatural beasties weren't exactly my primary concern. Someone had made a strong attempt at killing me this morning ... #Quote by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Killing quotes by Rose Wynters
#137. And for God's sake, if you need to shoot make sure to release the safety , he murmured, as we moved across the front, careful to stick to the shadows as often as we could. So far, I hadn't seen anyone, not even zombies. It wasn't uncommon for a straggler to come along, every now and then. Lucky for us, we were remote enough that we hadn't had any major issues with any hordes locating us. The men were quick to dispatch any zombies that hung around, not willing to take the risk that somehow they could communicate with each other. Not to mention, the zombies were strong and fast. It was better to end them, rather than to risk them one day killing one of us. #Quote by Rose Wynters

Killing quotes by Nicole Reed
#140. I can tell you, Jay, nothing that happens in this life is worth killing yourself over. Time passes, and you can decide to change your future. You don't let what some assholes say or do, direct you. In this life, it only matters what you do with it. #Quote by Nicole Reed
Killing quotes by William Law
#141. The Spirit of Love, wherever it is, is its own blessing and happiness, because it is the truth and reality of God in the soul; and therefore is in the same joy of life, and is the same good to itself everywhere and on every occasion. Would you know the blessing of all blessings? It is this God of Love dwelling in your soul, and killing every root of bitterness, which is the pain and torment of every earthly, selfish love. For all wants are satisfied, all disorders of nature are removed, no life is any longer a burden, every day is a day of peace, everything you meet becomes a help to you, because everything you see or do is all done in the sweet, gentle element of Love. #Quote by William Law
Killing quotes by Sojourner Truth
#142. And what is that religion that sanctions, even by its silence, all that is embraced in the 'Peculiar Institution'? If there can be any thing more diametrically opposed to the religion of Jesus, than the working of this soul-killing system - which is as truly sanctioned by the religion of America as are her minsters and churches - we wish to be shown where it can be found. #Quote by Sojourner Truth
Killing quotes by Linda Howard

Killing quotes by Aaron Huey
#144. The last chapter in any successful genocide is the one in which the oppressor can remove their hands and say, 'My God, what are these people doing to themselves? They're killing each other. They're killing themselves while we watch them die.' This is how we came to own these United States. This is the legacy of manifest destiny. #Quote by Aaron Huey
Killing quotes by Marshall Thornton
#145. Killing someone, even a bad someone, didn't feel good. It wasn't like in the movies where you kill someone and then in the next scene, you're back to looking for the nuclear codes or searching for the kidnappers or back undercover trying to take down the evil drug lord. No, in real life you feel shitty about it for a long time. Still, I was beginning to think that feeling shitty might be better than feeling dead. #Quote by Marshall Thornton
Killing quotes by Eddie Bernice Johnson
#146. We can't go all over the world killing people because we disagree with them. #Quote by Eddie Bernice Johnson
Killing quotes by Adam Kirsch
#147. To those who fought World War II, it was plain enough that Allied bombs were killing huge numbers of German civilians, that Churchill was fighting to preserve imperialism as well as democracy, and that the bulk of the dying in Europe was being done by the Red Army at the service of Stalin. It is only in retrospect that we begin to simplify experience into myth - because we need stories to live by, because we want to honor our ancestors and our country instead of doubting them. In this way, a necessary but terrible war is simplified into a "good war," and we start to feel shy or guilty at any reminder of the moral compromises and outright betrayals that are inseparable from every combat. The best history writing reverses this process, restoring complexity to our sense of the past. #Quote by Adam Kirsch
Killing quotes by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
#148. After getting dressed at warp speed, I actually managed to drive all the way to high school before I realized I'd forgotten my morning coffee. Mystery, intrigue, and naked dreams aside, that didn't bode well for my chances at making it through the morning without killing myself. Or someone else. #Quote by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Killing quotes by Jane Prowse
#149. Think about Praying Mantis. The deadliest ninja predator. Why isn't his animus a lion or a polar bear - two of the most successful killing machines in the animal kingdom? The answer is that these animals would not be right for him. Think how a praying mantis is invisible on a leaf, how they are carnivores who will devour their own species. The female will even eat her own partner once they've mated and, as hatchlings, their first meal is often one of their own siblings. These are the things that matter to Praying Mantis - and if you study his attributes, they are elements that will help you defeat him. #Quote by Jane Prowse
Killing quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#150. I was screaming and hitting at him, but he thought it all so very funny, and he draped me belly down on the saddle in front of him and then he spurred into the chaos to continue the killing.

Killing quotes by Sam Hamill
#153. Poets should speak out against what we see as the assault against our Constitution and the warmongering that's going on. I'm perfectly willing to lay down my life for my Constitution, but I am not willing to take a life for it or any other reason because I think killing people is counterproductive. #Quote by Sam Hamill
Killing quotes by Holly Black
#154. Gavriel was half in love with death. He'd lost a lover to it and put his own brother in a grave, so maybe it was no surprise that he stalked murderers through the city streets, sinking his fangs into their jugulars and gulping down their blood. Every night, it was as though he avenged his brother by killing some stand-in for himself. #Quote by Holly Black
Killing quotes by Mario Puzo
#155. Walter Kaylin was great! He was outrageous, he just carried it off. He'd have this one guy killing a thousand other guys. Then they beat him into the ground, you think he's dead, but he rises up again and kills another thousand guys. #Quote by Mario Puzo
Killing quotes by Michael Anthony
#156. I couldn't see killing myself if I had a book that was only half-read: Fountainhead, Catcher in the Rye, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, One Hundred Years of Solitude? No. I figured that those who killed themselves first had to finish whatever book they were reading...if it were any good, that is. Of course, there's always the occasional book that makes you want to throw yourself off a bridge just for having wasted your time reading it. But I usually finished those ones, too. #Quote by Michael Anthony
Killing quotes by Tessa Dare
#157. Diana opened her eyes and steeled her resolve. Some days, she decided, freedom meant the wind in your hair and the sun on your face and lips swollen with forbidden kisses.
And other days, freedom meant killing an eel. #Quote by Tessa Dare

#160. So you went to the doctor. What did he say? - He said I have to start killing people like my boss and my wife. - WHAT? - Well, not in those exact words. He said I need to reduce the stress in my life. But that's exactly the same thing. #Quote by Donald Shaw

Killing quotes by Marta Hillers
#162. These days I keep noticing how my feelings towards men - and the feelings of all the other women - are changing. We feel sorry for them; they seem so miserable and powerless. The weaker sex. Deep down we women are experiencing a kind of collective disappointment. The Nazi world - ruled by men, glorifying the strong man - is beginning to crumble, and with it the myth of "Man". In earlier wars men could claim that the privilege of killing and being killed for the fatherland was theirs and theirs alone. Today, we women, too, have a share. That has transformed us, emboldened us. Among the many defeats at the end of this war is the defeat of the male sex. #Quote by Marta Hillers
Killing quotes by Steven Pinker
#163. The authors of recent histories of mass killing are adamant that the idea of an unprecedented "century of genocide" (the 20th) is a myth. On their first page Chalk and Jonassohn write, "Genocide has been practiced in all regions of the world and during all periods in history," and add that their eleven case studies of pre-20th-century genocides "are not intended to be either exhaustive or representative. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Killing quotes by Carlo Michelstaedter
#164. The flower sees the propagation of its pollen in the bee, while the bee sees sweet food for its larvae in the flower. In the embrace of the two organisms each sees "itself as if in a mirror" (Phaedro 255d) in the disposition of the other. Neither knows whether its affirmation coincides with the other's or whether conversely its affirmation deprives the other of the future - killing it; each knows only that this is good for it and uses the other as a means to its own end,material for its own life,while it is itself the material for the other's life. #Quote by Carlo Michelstaedter
Killing quotes by Rachel Carson

Is it reasonable to suppose that we can apply a broad-spectrum insecticide to kill the burrowing larval stages of a crop-destroying insect ... without also killing the 'good' insects whose function may be the essential one of breaking down organic matter and maintaining healthy soil? #Quote by Rachel Carson
Killing quotes by M.F. Moonzajer
#166. Once my brother was very angry on my parents and told them "You should have killed me when I was a child"
Interestingly I was present and told him "I don't think it is still too late" and I have never heard him complaining about life. #Quote by M.F. Moonzajer
Killing quotes by David G. McAfee
#167. Because of Jesus' supposed predestination, God would have had to choose the people who would kill and betray his son, choose the method by which he would be killed (crucifixion), and the time at which the event would occur. Those guilty of killing Jesus would therefore be simply carrying out God's wishes without the free will to have chosen a path for themselves. #Quote by David G. McAfee
Killing quotes by Russell T. Davies
#168. Rose Tyler: The time war ends.
Emperor Dalek: I will not die! I cannot diieee!
[we see Rose's eyes light up, and the Dalek Emperor and his entire fleet disappear in an explosion of golden dust]
The Doctor: Rose, you've done it, now stop.
[Rose stares straight ahead]
The Doctor: Just let go.
Rose Tyler: How can I let go of this? I bring life.
[we see Jack start breathing again and open his eyes]
The Doctor: But this is wrong! You can't control life and death!
Rose Tyler: But I can. The sun and the moon, the day and night... but why do they hurt?
[she is crying]
The Doctor: The power's gonna kill you and it's my fault!
Rose Tyler: I can see everything... all that is... all that was... all that ever could be.
The Doctor: [stands up] But that's what *I* see. All the time. And doesn't it drive you mad?
Rose Tyler: [Rose nods, barely able to speak] My head...
The Doctor: Come here.
Rose Tyler: ...is killing me.
The Doctor: I think you need a Doctor.
[He leans down and kisses her, and the golden light transfers from her to him through their lips] #Quote by Russell T. Davies
Killing quotes by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
#169. Women find that as they vanquish the predator, taking from it what is useful and leaving the rest, they are filled with intensity, vitality, and drive.
The predator's rage can be rendered into a soul-fire for accomplishing a great task in the world. The predator's craftiness can be used to inspect and understand things from a distance. The predator's killing nature can be used to kill off that must properly die in a woman's life,or what she must die to in her outer life, these being different things at different times. Usually, she knows exactly what they are. #Quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Killing quotes by Katherine Pine
#170. A man killing himself in the pursuit of his dreams is no different in a moth flying into a flame. #Quote by Katherine Pine
Killing quotes by Joel C. Rosenberg
#171. Why, Uncle?" Jacob asked. "Why are they doing this?" Abruptly, Avi pulled the Adler around a corner onto a street that, for the moment at least, was as quiet as it was deserted. Avi slammed on the brakes and shut down the engine. Then he turned sharply and stared into Jacob's eyes. "Because he's a Jew," Avi whispered. "They're killing him because he's a Jew. #Quote by Joel C. Rosenberg
Killing quotes by Pope John Paul II
#172. Euthanasia is a grave violation of the law of God, since it is the deliberate and morally unacceptable killing of a human person. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Killing quotes by Rick Yancey
#173. The thing about killing is you don't know if you can actually do it until you actually do it. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Killing quotes by Adam Ross
#174. 'Mr. Peanut' is not about a man who dreams of killing his wife; that's jacket copy, to me. 'Mr. Peanut' is about the dynamism of marriage and the distances - some tragic, some redemptive - that marriages travel over time, and those travels ain't always pretty. #Quote by Adam Ross
Killing quotes by Will Christopher Baer
#175. Reality is in the business of killing off fiction. #Quote by Will Christopher Baer
Killing quotes by Cindy Milstein
#176. I want to love and rage, mourn and struggle, with millions of others, against this killing machine, until we shut it down for good--replacing it with social goodness that we can barely yet envision, and armed with do-it-ourselves, steel-hard solidarity as shield, aid, humanity, ethic.

Solidarity, as Weapon and Practice, versus Killer Cops and White Supremacy #Quote by Cindy Milstein
Killing quotes by John Durant
#177. Fevers are a mixed blessing. They damage good tissues in the body, and some runaway fevers end up killing people. Also, for as long as people have had fevers, they've used herbal medicines (including ones containing the active ingredient in aspirin) to relieve them. But it's also possible that ancients knew something we don't: that helping along a fever may actually be beneficial. #Quote by John Durant
Killing quotes by Bianca Jagger
#178. The killing of innocent people is always wrong. #Quote by Bianca Jagger
Killing quotes by Gena Showalter
#179. Gavin has started calling you the queen of zombie hearts," Cole said. "And you know what, he's right. It fits. Before you, I wasn't really living. I was existing. Moving from girl to girl. Killing zombies. I was as good as dead, but you brought me back to life. And you are most definitely the queen of my heart. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Killing quotes by Tim O'Brien
#180. He felt crazy sometimes. Real depravity. Late at night an electric sizzle came into his blood, a tight pumped-up killing rage, and he couldn't keep it in and he couldn't let it out. He wanted to hurt things. Grab a knife and start cutting and slashing and never stop. All those years. Climbing like a son of a bitch, clawing his way up inch by fucking inch, and then it all came crashing down at once. #Quote by Tim O'Brien
Killing quotes by Bill Ayers
#181. Dunbar-Ortiz strips us of our forged innocence, shocks us into new awareness, and draws a straight line from the sins of our fathers-settler-colonialism, the doctrine of discovery, the myth of manifest destiny, white supremacy, theft and systematic killing-to the contemporary condition of permanent war, invasion and occupation, mass incarceration, and the constant use and threat of state violence. #Quote by Bill Ayers
Killing quotes by Ally Carter
#182. Even though Cammie is fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man seven different ways with her bare hands, she has no idea what to do when she meets an ordinary boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl. #Quote by Ally Carter
Killing quotes by William Kent Krueger
#183. That night, as Cork lay in his bedroll, he thought about the bear they were after. He was glad Sam had changed his mind about killing the great animal, but he hoped they would at least see it. He thought about the Windigo, which was something he hoped he would not see. And he thought about his father, whom he would never see again. These were all elements of his life, and although they were separate things, they were now intertwined somehow like the roots of a tree. All his life he would remember the bear hunt with Sam Winter Moon. In some manner he didn't quite understand, the hunt had opened a way in him for the grief to begin passing through. All his life he would be grateful to his father's friend. #Quote by William Kent Krueger
Killing quotes by Douglas Coupland
#184. In 2008 we came perilously close to killing money, exposing in the process how out of date money's infrastructure has become. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Killing quotes by Yukio Mishima
#185. When I arrived at the house in the suburbs that night I seriously contemplated suicide for the first time in my life. But as I thought about it, the idea became exceedingly tiresome, and I finally decided it would be a ludicrous business. I had an inherent dislike of admitting defeat. Moreover, I told myself, there's no need for me to take such decisive action myself, not when I'm surrounded by such a bountiful harvest of death - death in an air raid, death at one's post of duty, death in the military service, death on the battlefield, death from being run over, death from disease - surely my name has already been entered in the list for one of these: a criminal who has been sentenced to death does not commit suicide. No - no matter how I considered, the season was not auspicious for suicide. Instead I was waiting for something to do me the favor of killing me. And this, in the final analysis, is the same as to say that I was waiting for something to do me the favor of keeping me alive. #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Killing quotes by Patrick Ness
#186. But it's obvious since the beginning that wars make no sense. You kill people to tell them you want to stop killing them. #Quote by Patrick Ness
Killing quotes by John Scalzi
#187. I am not Death. I am killing; I am the verb, I am the action, I am the performance. #Quote by John Scalzi
Killing quotes by Jane Cousins
#188. Arrgh!" Hadleigh flung up an arm to shield her eyes but the damage had been done. She'd seen a lot of ugly things in her time and generally ended up killing them but this … this thing defied description. It mocked the word ugly as pithy and stomped on an array of descriptive words such as loathsome, skin crawling and hideous. "Good Goddess, what in the Hell is that? #Quote by Jane Cousins
Killing quotes by David Gemmell
#189. Yes, it would have been good, he thought, to spend quiet years with his family, waiting for his diseased heart to fail as he sat in his chair staring at the mountains. But this was better. This was life! Not the killing and the terrified screams of dying men suddenly facing the awesome spectre of their own mortality. No, but to face his fears as a man, to stand at the brink of the abyss and refuse to be cowed or beaten down. #Quote by David Gemmell
Killing quotes by Mireya Mayor
#190. Dubbed the pink panthers of Madagascar, the fossas are killing machines, eating pretty much anything that moves with powerful jaws filled with canines as big as any guard dog's and long, retractable claws on both front and hind feet...What get most scientists' attention is the fossa's penis. An adult fossa is about 3.5 feet long and has a penis of about 7 inches, a sixth of its body length. If a man had the same ratio, he would be 3 feet tall and very smug. #Quote by Mireya Mayor
Killing quotes by Jarod Kintz
#191. My grandpa died yesterday. I ought to know, because I shot him. So come, join me in the fight against patricide by killing your father's father. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Killing quotes by Rick Riordan
#192. Normally ghosts didn't scare him. (Assuming, of course, Gaea hadn't encased them in shells of stone and turned them into killing machines. That had been a new one for him.) #Quote by Rick Riordan
Killing quotes by Jiang Rong
#193. Does that mean that the grass doesn't constitute a life? That the grassland isn't a life? Out here, the grass and the grassland are the life, the big life. All else is the little life that depends on the big life for survival. Even wolves and humans are little life. Creatures that eat grass are worse than creatures that eat meat. To you, the gazelle is to be pitied. So the grass isn't to be pitied, is that it? The gazelles have four fast-moving legs, and most of the time wolves spit up blood from exhaustion trying to catch them. When the gazelles are thirsty, they run to the river to drink, and when they're cold, they run to a warm spot on the mountain to soak up some sun. But the grass? Grass is the big life, yet it is most fragile, the most miserable life. Its roots are shallow, the soil is thin, and though it lives on the ground, it cannot run away. Anyone can step on it, eat it, chew it, crush it. A urinating horse can burn a large spot in it. And if the grass grows in sand or in the cracks between rocks, it is even shorter, because it cannot grow flowers, which means it cannot spread its seeds. For us Mongols, there's nothing more deserving of pity than the grass. If you want to talk about killing, the the gazelles kill more grass than any mowing machine could. When they graze the land, isn't that killing? Isn't that taking the big life of the grassland? When you kill off the big life of the grassland, all the little lives are doomed. The damage done by the gazelles far #Quote by Jiang Rong
Killing quotes by Anatoly Chubais
#194. The Bolsheviks started not just on the killing of private property; they were trying to abolish money itself. #Quote by Anatoly Chubais
Killing quotes by Bernard Hopkins
#195. I don't know what being a 48-year-old feels like. There are a lot of 48 year olds that aren't in good shape. The pharmacy is making a killing off of them. #Quote by Bernard Hopkins
Killing quotes by Ray McGovern
#196. You know, it's hard to say this, but I suspect that Obama is afraid either of blackmail potential or even worse. And he has referred to the killing of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in this main saying, "don't you remember what happened to Dr. King?" #Quote by Ray McGovern
Killing quotes by Rand Paul
#197. I think ultimately that the rules that you make for gun control, people who are intent on killing themselves aren't too concerned with the rules. Law-abiding citizens are. #Quote by Rand Paul
Killing quotes by Mark Vonnegut
#198. In a funny way it's almost fun, having everything be so fucked up and managing to adjust. I guess you might say I'm proud. Proud of me, proud of my friends for managing to deal with this thing so well. For most people this would be the end of the world. They'd panic, their friends would panic. Things would get trampled in the stampede. But we've kept our heads, made the necessary allowances, ad can just ride this thing out.

I'm pretty much just putting in time waiting for this cloud to blow over. Waiting for something to come along to make some sense out of all this. Killing time, waiting for some sort of cavalry to come over the hill. There's really not an awful lot I can do but wait. As long as there's no panic, we can hold out for damn near forever. #Quote by Mark Vonnegut
Killing quotes by Fredrik Backman
#199. Parvaneh's belly is now so big that she looks like a giant tortoise when she heaves herself down into a squatting position, one hand on the gravestone and the other hooked around Patrick's arm. Not that Ove dares bring up the giant tortoise metaphor, of course. There are more pleasant ways of killing oneself, he feels. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Killing quotes by Rabih Alameddine
#200. As much as I loved it and felt at home within its cages, school is more Hades than Heaven - a ritual killing of childhood is performed in school, children are put to death. #Quote by Rabih Alameddine
