Pretty quotes by Marina & The Diamonds
#1. Homewrecker"

Every boyfriend is the one
Until otherwise proven
The good are never easy
The easy never good
And love it never happens like you think it really should

Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
One will breed love
The other hate
You'll find me in the lonely hearts
Under 'I'm after a brand new start'

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker

Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)

I'm only happy when I'm on the run
I break a million hearts just for fun
I don't belong to anyone

I guess you could say that my life's a mess
But I'm still looking pretty in this dress
I'm the image of deception

When everything is life and death
You may feel like there's nothing left
Instead of love #Quote by Marina & The Diamonds
Pretty quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#2. Writers always have confidence issues - it comes with the territory. We never know where we fit in, or what the actual value of our work might be. So we hit lulls, or slogs. Throw in the idea that many creative people are somewhat manic-depressive, and it can get pretty dark at times. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Pretty quotes by The Weeknd
#3. 'Kiss Land' is the story after 'Trilogy'; it's pretty much the second chapter of my life. The narrative takes place after my first flight; it's very foreign, very Asian-inspired. When people ask me, 'Why Japan?' I simply tell them it's the furthest I've ever been from home. It really is a different planet. #Quote by The Weeknd
Pretty quotes by Natasha Trethewey
#4. The first thing I tried to do in the months after losing my mother was to write a poem. I found myself turning to poetry in the way so many people do - to make sense of losses. And I wrote pretty bad poems about it. But it did feel that the poem was the only place that could hold this grief. #Quote by Natasha Trethewey
Pretty quotes by Lynette Fromme
#5. How much will you give for the lives of your childrens children, which is yourself? How much are people willing to give up for air, earth, water, animals, and the coming generations? I think the answer to that is pretty clear. #Quote by Lynette Fromme
Pretty quotes by Nicole Ari Parker
#6. It's not how pretty you are or how talented you are. It's that if these five people on this day in this room like you, then you get a job. #Quote by Nicole Ari Parker
Pretty quotes by Steven Johnson
#7. I love those stretches where I've just been a writer - when I haven't been doing Internet start-ups - where I pretty much eliminate meetings from my life. #Quote by Steven Johnson
Pretty quotes by Natalie Portman
#8. I'm pretty hard on myself in general. #Quote by Natalie Portman
Pretty quotes by Desi Arnaz

Pretty quotes by Raymond Chandler
#10. It is pretty obvious that the debasement of the human mind caused by a constant flow of fraudulent advertising is no trivial thing. There is more than one way to conquer a country. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Pretty quotes by Shalom Auslander
#11. He could pull this off. He was sure of it. It would have been one thing to protect Anne Frank from the Nazis; he was pretty sure he couldn't have managed that. But protecting his family from Anne Frank? How difficult could that be? #Quote by Shalom Auslander
Pretty quotes by Voltaire
#12. It is amusing that a virtue is made of the vice of chastity; and it's a pretty odd sort of chastity at that, which leads men straight into the sin of Onan, and girls to the waning of their color. #Quote by Voltaire
Pretty quotes by Ashlan Thomas
#13. I am pretty impressive. #Quote by Ashlan Thomas
Pretty quotes by Jessica Brody
#14. When my phone chimes with a text message on Monday morning, I'm still in that dreamy state between sleep and awake where you can pretty much convince yourself of anything. Like that a teen Mick Jagger is waiting in your driveway to take you to school. Or that your favorite book series ended with an actual satisfying conclusion, instead of what the author tried to pass off as a satisfying conclusion. #Quote by Jessica Brody
Pretty quotes by Gary Kovacs
#15. I am being stalked across the Web. And why is this happening? Pretty simple: It's huge business. #Quote by Gary Kovacs
Pretty quotes by Shelby Lynne
#16. I don't have a problem baring my emotions in music. That's one of the reasons I'm glad to have music in my life. I'm pretty resilient as far as being a human being. A lot of songs write themselves. #Quote by Shelby Lynne
Pretty quotes by Michael Rosenbaum
#17. I was pretty much a homebody; didn't really go to school dances, never went to a prom. I was a bit of a loner, a geek. #Quote by Michael Rosenbaum
Pretty quotes by Lee Goldberg

"Of course it does," I said. "It's what you feel when you're not sad."
"That's unconsciousness. And I'm pretty sure that I'm miserable when I am unconscious, too. #Quote by Lee Goldberg
Pretty quotes by Isobelle Carmody
#19. I am very fortunate in that I have spent pretty much my whole life being a writer, and before I was a writer, I was a storyteller. #Quote by Isobelle Carmody
Pretty quotes by Brendan Dooling
#20. Society puts so much emphasis on outer appearance, but being confident in yourself and not letting others' opinions affect you is pretty amazing. #Quote by Brendan Dooling
Pretty quotes by Dennis C. Blair
#21. I think you can go back in history and look at what the effect in Asia and the world was of a divided, fractured China from, you know, the opium wars through the Chinese civil war, and I don't think it was pretty for Asia or the world. #Quote by Dennis C. Blair
Pretty quotes by Scott M. Gimple
#22. I actually come from comics, and I'm big on comics. I was reading 'Walking Dead' from the beginning. Then just being on the show, I was really lucky to work on episodes like 'Pretty Much Dead Already' and 'Clear.' I worked a lot on episodes that I didn't write. #Quote by Scott M. Gimple
Pretty quotes by Jennifer Apodaca
#23. It was pretty amazing. I wasn't thinking about anything but how good it felt to be kissed and touched by you. You totally ruined boring sex for me. #Quote by Jennifer Apodaca
Pretty quotes by Rick Allen

Pretty quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#25. So I am a Socialist," said Ingleby, "but I can't stand this stuff about Old Dumbletonians. If everybody had the same State education, these things wouldn't happen." "If everybody had the same face," said Bredon, "there'd be no pretty women. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Pretty quotes by Tilda Swinton
#26. I would say, and this sounds like a rather immodest thing to say, but the truth is it's probably the most amazing thing of all, it's pretty much exactly what I thought we were going to make, what I hoped we'd make. #Quote by Tilda Swinton
Pretty quotes by Lorrie Moore
#27. If we were still English we'd be drinking more and driving on the wrong side of the road - pretty much what people do on the Fourth of July anyway. #Quote by Lorrie Moore

Pretty quotes by Gavin Rossdale
#29. I pretty much grew up when punk was big in the UK. The Sex Pistols were heroes for me. I used to run around like Johnny Rotten. I had a jacket like his. #Quote by Gavin Rossdale
Pretty quotes by Penelope Douglas
#30. It looked like it, too, remembering the blanket of white over everything outside. How water kind of had a habit of quieting the world around me my entire life, and in one form or another, I sought it out and reveled in hiding behind it.

Looking over her shoulder, out the window, the snow fell, charging the air with a little more beauty, the animation making the Earth look alive even when everything else was still. A little more pretty. A little more peaceful. A little more cover. #Quote by Penelope Douglas
Pretty quotes by Jamie Canosa
#31. Connor hands shiny black guns to both me and Peter.
I'm pretty sure that if the best description of the weapon I can come up with is black and shiny, then I probably shouldn't be handling it. #Quote by Jamie Canosa
Pretty quotes by Kimberly Derting
#32. What was that all about?" Jay asked in loud whisper.
She still felt like her head was reeling. She had no idea what she was going to tell to Grady when school was out. "I think Grady just asked me to Homecoming," she announced to Jay.
He looked at her suspiciously. "The game?"
Violet cocked her head to the side and gave him a look that told him to be serious.
"No, I'm pretty sure he meant the dance," Violet clarified, exasperated by the obtuse question. #Quote by Kimberly Derting
Pretty quotes by Dane Cook
#33. I've been ignoring my feelings lately. That works pretty well. Might also settle for less this week, just to try it out. #Quote by Dane Cook
Pretty quotes by Aravind Adiga
#34. He read me another poem, and another one - and he explained the true history of poetry, which is a kind of secret, a magic known only to wise men. Mr. Premier, I won't be saying anything new if I say that the history of the world is the history of a ten-thousand-year war of brains between the rich and the poor. Each side is eternally trying to hoodwink the other side: and it has been this way since the start of time. The poor win a few battles (the peeing in the potted plants, the kicking of the pet dogs, etc.) but of course the rich have won the war for ten thousand years. That's why, on day, some wise men, out of compassion for the poor, left them signs and symbols in poems, which appear to be about roses and pretty girls and things like that, but when understood correctly spill out secrets that allow the poorest man on earth to conclude the ten-thousand-year-old brain-war on terms favorable to himself. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Pretty quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#35. I don't want to talk as much,' she said, denting her chin thoughtfully with her forefinger. 'It's nicer to think dear, pretty thoughts and keep them in one's heart, like treasures. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Pretty quotes by Brene Brown
#36. Men and women who live Wholeheartedly do indeed DIG Deep. They just do it in a different way. When they're exhausted and overwhelmed, they get Deliberate in their thoughts and behaviors through prayer, meditation, or simply setting their intentions; Inspired to make new and different choices; Going. They take action. Since I made that discovery, I've been DIGging Deep the new way, and it's been pretty amazing. #Quote by Brene Brown
Pretty quotes by Paul Van Dyk
#37. The good thing, really, is that electronic music started as a fringe subculture, and now it's the biggest youth culture in the world. People pretty much everywhere go crazy for electronic music. #Quote by Paul Van Dyk
Pretty quotes by Brian Andreas
#38. Is there a lot of stuff you don't understand? she said & I said pretty much the whole thing & she nodded & said that's what she thought, but it was nice to hear it anyways & we sat there on the porch swing, listening to the wind & growing up together. #Quote by Brian Andreas
Pretty quotes by Nenia Campbell
#39. She wasn't soft or pretty; she was hard-edged and cold, like one of those cold bronze statues surrounded by high fences and crowned in razor wire. Don't touch me, such defenses said, but it wasn't enough to halt a breach, no. She had thought people only picked the soft-petaled, sweet-smelling flowers, but some people took thorns as a challenge. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Pretty quotes by Washington Irving
#40. Such heaped up platters of cakes of various and almost indescribable kinds, known only to experienced Dutch housewives! There was the doughty doughnut, the tender oly koek, and the crisp and crumbling cruller; sweet cakes and short cakes, ginger cakes and honey cakes, and the whole family of cakes. And then there were apple pies, and peach pies, and pumpkin pies; besides slices of ham and smoked beef; and moreover delectable dishes of preserved plums, and peaches, and pears, and quinces; not to mention broiled shad and roasted chickens; together with bowls of milk and cream, all mingled higgledy-piggledy, pretty much as I have enumerated them, with the motherly teapot sending up its clouds of vapor from the midst
Heaven bless the mark! #Quote by Washington Irving
Pretty quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#41. Tally smiled. At least she was causing trouble to the end. "I'm Tally Youngblood," she said. "make me pretty. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Pretty quotes by John C. Reilly
#42. I'm aware of how lucky I am. Being able to make pretty good money, and get to do a lot of fun work, and at the same time I'm not besieged by photographers. #Quote by John C. Reilly
Pretty quotes by Michael Lewis
#43. Individual Greeks are delightful: funny, warm, smart, and good company. I left two dozen interviews saying to myself, "What great people!" They do not share the sentiment about one another: the hardest thing to do in Greece is to get one Greek to compliment another behind his back. No success of any kind is regarded without suspicion. Everyone is pretty sure everyone is cheating on his taxes, or bribing politicians, or taking bribes, or lying about the value of his real estate. And this total absence of faith in one another is self-reinforcing. The epidemic of lying and cheating and stealing makes any sort of civic life impossible; the collapse of civic life only encourages more lying, cheating, and stealing. Lacking faith in one another, they fall back on themselves and their families. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Pretty quotes by Saul Alinsky
#44. Organized business has assumed that greater profits would be pretty much of a cure-all, and it has to a major extent ignored the fact that the welfare of business rests upon the welfare of the consumers of a nation; that business or free enterprise will function in a democracy only so long as the democracy functions. #Quote by Saul Alinsky
Pretty quotes by Philip K. Dick
#45. Masochism is more widespread than we realize because it takes an attenuated form. The basic dynamism is as follows: a human being sees something bad which is coming as inevitable. There is no way he can halt the process; he is helpess. This sense of helplessness generates a need to gain some control over the impending pain -- any kind of control will do. This makes sense; the subjective feeling of helplessness is more painful than the impending misery. So the person seizes control over the situation in the only way open to him: he connives to bring on the impending misery; he hastens it. This activity on his part promotes the false impression that he enjoys pain. Not so. It is simply that he cannot any longer endure the helplessness or the supposed helplessness. But in the process of gaining control over the inevitable misery he becomes, automatically, anhedonic. Anhedonia sets in stealthily. Over the years it takes control of him. For example, he learns to defer gratification; this is a step in the dismal process of anhedonia. In learning to defer he gratification he experiences a sense of self-mastery; he has become stoic, disciplined; he does not give way to impulse. He has "control". Control over himself in terms of his impulses and control over the external situation. He is a controlled and controlling person. Pretty soon he has branched out and is controlling other people, as part of the situation. He becomes a manipulator. Of course, he is not conciousily aware of this #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Pretty quotes by Leonard Mlodinow
#46. If someone were to ask about your taste in fine dining and you were to say, "I lean toward food served with vivid adjectives," you'd probably get a pretty strange look; #Quote by Leonard Mlodinow
Pretty quotes by Demetri Martin
#47. When they were naming vitamins they must have thought there were going to be way more vitamins than there ended up being. OK let's name these: Vitamin A, Vitamin B ... ok man slow down we've got a lot to cover here. B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B12. Then they got to E and they were like 'We're pretty much done. We've got all those damn B's. This is embarrassing. Let's just skip to K and get the hell out of here. #Quote by Demetri Martin
Pretty quotes by E. Lockhart
#48. One day when no one else was around, I went into the craft room at the back of the ground floor. I touched Gran's collection of fabrics, the shiny bright buttons, the coloured threads. My head and shoulders melted first, followed by my hips and knees. Before long I was a puddle, soaking into the pretty cotton prints. I drenched the quilt she never finished, rusted the metal parts of her sewing machine. I was pure liquid loss ... #Quote by E. Lockhart
Pretty quotes by Langhorne Slim
#49. Some people don't like my songs because they think they're too simple or easy or not that thought-out. I feel like the way I write is pretty simple, in some ways, because I'm trying to connect. I want a lot of people to hear it, and be moved in some way. #Quote by Langhorne Slim
Pretty quotes by Barry Humphries
#50. I Sellotape whole tins of sardines to my face at night, attach two squeezed lemon rinds to my armadillo-skinned elbows, and put cucumber on my eyes. By the time I'm finished, I look like a fruit salad with added fish. In the morning, the pillow is pretty much a write-off. #Quote by Barry Humphries
Pretty quotes by Jenny Lawson
#51. I'm not going to say I told you so" is pretty much the same thing as saying "I told you so." Except worse because you're saying "I told you so" and congratulating yourself for your restraint in not saying what you totally just said. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Pretty quotes by Warren Ellis
#52. He wasn't pleased with himself for appraising the girl in the tank. He thought of her as half-pretty, the sort of girl one would find modeling for art classes in dire community colleges. Putting her cheap panties and her ex-boyfriend's shirt back on to wander around the easels afterward and wondering how grotesque she must really be, to have summoned up the deformities whacked down in merciless charcoal strikes. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Pretty quotes by Simon Cowell
#53. I've had Botox, but then again pretty much everyone I know has. To me, Botox is no more unusual than toothpaste. It works. You do it once a year - who cares? #Quote by Simon Cowell
Pretty quotes by Harry Styles
#54. You get moments all the time that kind of make you pinch yourself, some of them make you quite emotional. Winning a BRIT was a big moment because we were just so excited to be at the awards in the first place. Selling out Madison Square Garden was pretty amazing too. Then we woke to the news that our UK tour was sold out. It was crazy. #Quote by Harry Styles
Pretty quotes by Satya Nadella
#55. In our business, things look like a failure until they're not. It's pretty binary transitions. #Quote by Satya Nadella
Pretty quotes by Gene Krupa
#56. Well I guess I like variety pretty much, but I do enjoy this work very much. Particularly with Buddy on the gig, we get a chance to knock each other out It'just wonderful. #Quote by Gene Krupa
Pretty quotes by Les Claypool

Pretty quotes by Ryan Lochte
#59. With swimming, I burn a lot of calories. I'm able to eat pretty much anything and it won't affect me. But I don't. #Quote by Ryan Lochte
Pretty quotes by Denis O'Hare
#60. It's pretty crazy. I was thinking about that today, how 'True Blood' has penetrated so much of the cultural zeitgeist. It's truly amazing; it's incredible! The cover of 'Rolling Stone' is major. What's next, the cover of 'Vanity Fair?' When I'm in a 'New Yorker' cartoon, then I will feel like I have made it. #Quote by Denis O'Hare
Pretty quotes by Gary Clark, Jr.
#61. I was just a very emotional player. I wore my emotions on my sleeve. I pretty much told you how I felt. I didn't mince words, so to speak. If I felt bad, I let you know that I felt bad. If I felt you were playing sorry, I told you. If I was playing sorry, I told myself that. I came from an era when losing really hurt. I didn't see anything good about it. #Quote by Gary Clark, Jr.
Pretty quotes by Jenny Han
#62. I'm crossing our backyard to the Pearces', trying to juggle the bag and the portable speakers and my phone, when I see John Ambrose McClaren standing in front of the tree house, staring up at it with his arms crossed. I'd know the back of his blond head anywhere.
I freeze, suddenly nervous and unsure. I'd thought Peter or Chris would be here with me when he arrived, and that would smooth out any awkwardness. But no such luck.
I put down all my stuff and move forward to tap him on the shoulder, but he turns around before I can. I take a step back. "Hi! Hey!" I say.
"Hey!" He takes a long look at me. "Is it really you?"
"It's me."
"My pen pal the elusive Lara Jean Covey who shows up at Model UN and runs off without so much as a hello?"
I bite the inside of my cheek. "I'm pretty sure I at least said hello."
Teasingly he says, "No, I'm pretty sure you didn't."
He's right: I didn't. I was too flustered. Kind of like right now. It must be that distance between knowing someone when you were a kid and seeing them now that you're both more grown-up, but still not all the way grown-up, and there are all these years and letters in between you, and you don't know how to act.
"Well--anyway. You look…taller." He looks more than just taller. Now that I can take the time to really look at him, I notice more. With his fair hair and milky skin and rosy cheeks, he looks like he could be an English farmer's son. But he's slim, so maybe the sensitive f #Quote by Jenny Han
Pretty quotes by Sheila Heti
#63. Sholem [a painter] was saying that freedom, for him, is having the technical facility to be able to execute whatever he wants, just whatever image he has in his mind. But that's not freedom! That's control, or power. Whereas I think Margaux understands freedom to be the freedom to take risks, the freedom to do something bad or appear foolish. To not recognize that difference is a pretty big thing. [ ... ]
"It's like with improv," Misha said. "True improv is about surprising yourself
but most people won't improvise truthfully. They're afraid. What they do is pull from their bag of tricks. They take what they already know how to do and apply it to the present situation. But that's cheating! And cheating's bad for an artist. It's bad in life
but it's really bad in art." -p.20-1, How Should A Person Be #Quote by Sheila Heti
Pretty quotes by Hill Harper
#64. My first two books, 'Letters to a Young Brother' and 'Letters to a Young Sister,' were ... distributed pretty widely. Judges in juvenile justice facilities started citing the book as required reading. #Quote by Hill Harper
Pretty quotes by Jesse McCartney
#65. Kids are pretty brutal. #Quote by Jesse McCartney
Pretty quotes by Studs Terkel
#66. We use the word 'hope' perhaps more often than any other word in the vocabulary: 'I hope it's a nice day.' 'Hopefully, you're doing well.' 'So how are things going along? Pretty good. Going to be good tomorrow? Hope so.' #Quote by Studs Terkel
Pretty quotes by Sarah Hall
#67. People went through life like well handled jugs, collecting chips and scrapes and stains from wear and tear, from holding and pouring life. #Quote by Sarah Hall
Pretty quotes by Nancy E. Turner
#68. I said, Well, looks like he's pretty ornery. I wonder where he gets it?
Jack just shrugged and kissed my cheek, and then whispered in my ear, He gets it from his mother. #Quote by Nancy E. Turner
Pretty quotes by Beth Riesgraf
#69. I have this vintage Valentino clutch. Ughhh, it's so pretty! Also, I'm not a big fur person, but I'll do a vintage fur every now and then. #Quote by Beth Riesgraf
Pretty quotes by Peter Guralnick
#70. Perkins was doing basically the same sort of thing up around Jackson, and I know for a fact Jerry Lee Lewis had been playing that kind of music ever since he was ten years old. You see, from the honky tonks you got such a mixture of all different types of music, and I think what happened is that when Elvis busted through, it enabled all these other groups that had been going along more or less the same avenue - I'm sure there were hundreds of them - to tighten up and focus on what was going to be popular. If they had a steel guitar they dropped it. The weepers and slow country ballads pretty much went out of their repertoire. And what you had left was country-orientated boogie music. #Quote by Peter Guralnick
Pretty quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#71. I write pretty fast, probably faster than most people. But I might think about something for six hours, then write it in 20 minutes. So did I write for six hours and 20 minutes, or just 20 minutes? I used to write absolutely every day, except for days when I had to travel or something. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Pretty quotes by Keri Russell
#72. It's sad when girls think they don't have anything going on except being pretty. #Quote by Keri Russell
Pretty quotes by Francine Pascal
#73. Pretty people do ugly things.
It was one of those laws of nature that Gaia had understood for years. If she ever started to forget that ride for a second, there always seemed to be some good-looking asshole ready to remind her. #Quote by Francine Pascal
Pretty quotes by Matthew Reilly
#74. Hamish shrugged. It's all pretty cool and impressive ... if you never saw fucking Jurassic Park. #Quote by Matthew Reilly
Pretty quotes by Thomas Amo
#75. A pretty face can sometimes hide an evil mind. #Quote by Thomas Amo
Pretty quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#76. It felt almost rude to ignore toe pretty white bed, but we just weren't going to make it that far. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Pretty quotes by Iris Dement
#77. I've always been aware of having feelings that were pretty intense at times. I imagine most people have had that, or they wouldn't be human. #Quote by Iris Dement
Pretty quotes by Tom Upton
#78. Other than the voices in my head, I think I'm pretty normal. #Quote by Tom Upton
Pretty quotes by Tamora Pierce
#79. They had almost reached their horses when Neal's unmistakable drawl sounded through the stable: Joren is so pretty. Say, Garvey, are you two friends because you can have him? #Quote by Tamora Pierce
Pretty quotes by Wiz Khalifa
#80. I've been pretty focused my entire life, and now that I have a family, I'm just going to keep that focus, but it's going to be a family focus. #Quote by Wiz Khalifa
Pretty quotes by Nate Holland
#81. I think my strengths are definitely - I'm a really good glider. I'm one of the fastest, like on a straight drag race, I can pretty much kill that. #Quote by Nate Holland
Pretty quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#82. The world still wants to ask that a woman primarily be pretty and if she is not, the mob pouts and asks querulously, 'What else are women for? #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Pretty quotes by Jennifer Egan
#83. If you read novels of the 19th century, they're pretty experimental. They take lots of chances; they seem to break a lot of rules. You've got omniscient narrators lecturing at times to the reader in first person. If you go back to the earliest novels, this is happening to a wild extent, like 'Tristram Shandy' or 'Don Quixote'. #Quote by Jennifer Egan
Pretty quotes by Teresa Mummert
#84. It wasn't as easy for others to accept the darker side of themselves. Most like to cling to the notion that hesitation still marked the presence of morality. Deep down we were all just selfish animals. We liked to take ... or be taken. #Quote by Teresa Mummert
Pretty quotes by Shia Labeouf
#85. I trained more than anybody ever in a golf film ever made - my swing is pretty hot. #Quote by Shia Labeouf
Pretty quotes by Nicki Minaj
#86. Real big pretty titty, shut down every city. If you want the kit kitty, gotta get the key from me, all new everything, plus pay the rent for me. If we in the woods then these niggas pitch a tent for me. #Quote by Nicki Minaj
Pretty quotes by Lunga Noélia Izata
#87. We went to my friend's place to continue hanging out and I fell asleep on her couch. I was dreaming and I felt something poking me, as a writer I need to be specific and use description to take my readers to the place but I don't want to take you guys there. I continued to feel poked on a part of my body that I saved for seventeen years. The poke later became touching, and I tried to stop it but I couldn't. I thought it was sleep paralysis but this time the demon was human. I felt so powerless, like I was part of the marvel universe and someone had taken my power. I never told anyone about it, because they would blame it on drinking problems. I admit that I have a drinking problem, but I am pretty sure he has a 'lack of humanity problem'. At least, alcohol does not change character. #Quote by Lunga Noélia Izata
Pretty quotes by Dev Hynes
#88. I'm pretty much fully digital. I've basically spent a few painstaking days putting sounds into my laptop, just banking them, because I love playing, and I love visually seeing it on my screen and being able to change the sounds more, with different plug-ins. I've created my own synth sounds. #Quote by Dev Hynes
Pretty quotes by Julie James
#89. You do realize that getting down on one knee generally refers to a proposal, right?" Sidney
continued. "A marriage proposal?"
His eyes, a warm green-gold, daringly held hers as he softly sang the next line of the song. "'You
smiled . . . and then the spell was cast.'"
Okay, he pretty much just melted her heart right there. #Quote by Julie James
Pretty quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#90. That quest for something pretty. A cheat. A cliche. Flowers and Christmas lights, it's what we're programmed to love. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Pretty quotes by John Flanagan
#91. Horace normally didn't need anyone else to save his life. He was pretty skilled at doing it for himself. #Quote by John Flanagan
Pretty quotes by Ashley Poston
#92. On your left!" my bodyguard shouts again, skirting around me. "Looks like you only got two speeds - slow and slower!"

I glare after him. "Excuse me?"

Lonny spins around and begins jogging backward. "Prove me wrong, pretty boy."

That is it.

He has followed me. He has towered over me with that serious, terrifyingly calm face of his. He's been a quiet, stalking Weeping Angel for as long as he's been around. But Hades'll freeze over before I let him throw shade like that. #Quote by Ashley Poston
Pretty quotes by Jimi Hendrix
#93. Definitely, and it's getting more spiritual. Pretty soon I believe people will have to rely on music to get some kind of peace of mind, or satisfaction, or direction, actually. More so than politics, the big ego scene. You know it's an art of words ... Meaning nothing. Therefore you will have to get an earthier substance, like music or the arts. #Quote by Jimi Hendrix
Pretty quotes by Paul Rudnick
#94. Wait," I said. "so you're saying that you proposed to me because I'm a mess and I'm a person and because we need each other, while Rebecca was - something else? I get it, I follow you, but I'm also thinking, is the bullshit getting a little deep in here?"
"Yes, it is. You've caught me. And so fine, I will come clean, and I will tell you the absolutely true and naked reason why I want to marry you and only you, and not Rebecca."
"Why?"
"Because when I'm with you, I'm the pretty one. #Quote by Paul Rudnick
Pretty quotes by Matt Haig
#95. So, if and when they discover aliens they'd be really pretty unsettled because then we'd have to know, once and for all, that there is nothing really unique or special about us at all. #Quote by Matt Haig
Pretty quotes by Daniel Wu
#96. If you're down to 6% body fat, which I've done before, you burn out really quickly. Like, in a couple hours, you're pretty much done, and then you're useless. #Quote by Daniel Wu
Pretty quotes by Wim Wenders
#97. I think sometimes you have to just imagine something that looks pretty impossible. By imagining something that is impossible, automatically you wish you could make it possible. #Quote by Wim Wenders
Pretty quotes by Zach Weinersmith
#98. The squire located a few common fauna - - a frog, a newt, and an amphisbaena. One of those animals may sound unfamiliar, so if you've never seen a frog, it's like a goat, but with the head of a lizard and the body of a grasshopper. The newt was a cauldron-ready cooking newt, and the amphisbaena was pretty much your run-of-the-mill amphisbaena. #Quote by Zach Weinersmith
Pretty quotes by Dean Koontz
#99. As an adult I discovered that I was a pretty good autodidact, and can teach myself all kind of things. And developed a great interest in a number of different things from how to build a street hot rod from the ground up to quantum mechanics, and those two different kinds of mechanics, and it was really in the sciences, quantum mechanics, molecular biology, I would begin looking at these things looking for ideas, but in fact you don't read it for ideas you read it for curiosity and interest in the subject. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Pretty quotes by Conor Oberst
#100. As long as I can buy records and books and maybe some clothes, I'm pretty stoked. I don't need a yacht or anything. #Quote by Conor Oberst
Pretty quotes by Andrew Vachss
#101. Going to prison is pretty common. Coming out a better person than when you went in, that's never been done. #Quote by Andrew Vachss
Pretty quotes by Taylor Swift
#102. A lot of people have pretty little heads, but it's difficult to find a pretty little mind. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Pretty quotes by Emily Bronte
#103. His features were pretty yet, and his eye and complexion brighter than I remembered them, though with merely temporary lustre borrowed from the salubrious air and genial sun. #Quote by Emily Bronte
Pretty quotes by E.H. Gombrich
#104. The history of the world is, sadly, not a pretty poem. It offers little variety, and it is nearly always the unpleasant things that are repeated, over and over again. #Quote by E.H. Gombrich
Pretty quotes by Ray Winstone
#105. The other thing is that when people mention computers - and I'm pretty much the same - they find it hard to comprehend that there's a performance there. They look at it as something that's just been made by a computer but in a way the difference is that when you make a normal film - and I'm simplifying it here - you put on the make-up and you put the scenery in before you start shooting, but with this you still perform in the same way but then you put the make-up on after, along with the costumes and scenery. #Quote by Ray Winstone
Pretty quotes by Hermann Hesse
#106. Don't talk so horribly,' she scolded. 'It is quite natural. I like you too. You, too, have something nice about you that endears you and marks you out. I wouldn't have you different. One oughtn't to talk of these things and want them accounted for. Listen, when you kiss my neck or my ear, I feel that I please you, that you like me. You have a way of kissing as though you were shy, and that tells me: "You please him. He is grateful to you for being pretty." That gives me great, great pleasure. And then again with another man it's just to opposite that pleases me, that he kisses me as though he thought little of me and conferred a favor. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Pretty quotes by Timothy Zahn
#107. I had a plan, all right, ... I was also pretty sure no one on my list of allies was going to like it. #Quote by Timothy Zahn
Pretty quotes by Dominic Monaghan
#108. When I was at college, I worked in a department store called Brit Home Stores, which is a pretty lackluster department store, selling clothes for middle-aged women. My job was to walk the floor and find anything that was damaged, take it to the store room and log it. #Quote by Dominic Monaghan
Pretty quotes by Cassandra Danz
#109. I can't resist a pretty plant. When I see it, I want it, I buy it, take it home, and plant it where ever I can find a place. If I had a similar moral code when it comes to romance, I would be divorced several times over by now. That is the reason I grow a cottage garden. I can stick everything in with complete abandon and no discrimination whatsoever. #Quote by Cassandra Danz
Pretty quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#110. Now that I think of it, maybe she loves him because all his problems give her so much to pray about, and when you're as old as she is , and your body is like enough already, you need some pretty powerful reasons to stay alive. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
Pretty quotes by Moshe Kasher
#111. I'm admitting that I don't know that to be true, but it does sound pretty good. So a big part of my childhood was affecting black culture and black accents and black music and anything black I was into. #Quote by Moshe Kasher
Pretty quotes by Mal Peet
#112. It pretty much defeats the purpose of bedtime reading if you fall asleep before the kids do. And you tend to wake up with a matchbox stuck on the end of your nose and/or a potty on your head. #Quote by Mal Peet
Pretty quotes by Ruben Blades
#113. I think in New York we had respect and we would pretty much fill up the places where we went, but I never got the sense that we really were Number 1 here in New York among the Latin crowds. #Quote by Ruben Blades
Pretty quotes by Josie Silver
#114. He adjusts our hands, his fingers warm around mine.

And then he looks down at me, and his eyes say all the things he cannot. His gaze holds mine as we dance slowly, and I silently tell him that I'll always carry him in my heart, and he silently tells me that in another place, another time, we'd have been pretty damn close to perfect.

'For what it's worth' - his hand slips into my hair and he strokes his thumb along my jaw - 'and because we're finally being honest with each other, you're just about my favourite person in the world, and it was the single most spectacular kiss of my whole life. #Quote by Josie Silver
Pretty quotes by Kelly Masterson
#115. It's like having children. You give birth, but then they take on a life of their own. That's what actors do for characters. It's pretty amazing. #Quote by Kelly Masterson
Pretty quotes by Bill Condon
#116. That day I think we really saw each other for the first time. I mean, saw beyond the bag of bones on the outside. You take away her pretty and my plain and what you get underneath is about the same: a couple of lost girls looking to be found. #Quote by Bill Condon
Pretty quotes by Robert L. Millet
#117. It takes a pretty strong person, a rather unusual young person, to stand up to ridicule and refuse to give in to temptation. There are so many things today in modern music, on television, and in the movies that portray a life that is nowhere near the life the Lord would have us live. Consequently, we cannot afford to turn to the radio, television, or Hollywood to take our cues about what is right and what is wrong. It is scary to realize that the more we are exposed to Hollywood's version of life, the more we gradually begin to accept it. #Quote by Robert L. Millet
Pretty quotes by Lisa M. Prysock
#118. It's pretty amazing that the Lord of heaven and earth, creator of everything, the God of Jacob and Israel, the Messiah, Jesus, allows us to carry him around in our hearts! He is good and full of grace, even when we aren't. He loves us even when we mess it up. He deserves our very best! #Quote by Lisa M. Prysock
Pretty quotes by Jay-Z
#119. I'm gonna fight, and I'm gonna make something out of nothing. That's pretty much the American dream. So, for me, the realization that I could speak to people like that came first on a small scale. Then it just started happening. I started having this vibration. #Quote by Jay-Z
Pretty quotes by Kasie West
#120. My older brother, Lucas, is twenty and away at college."
"Those are pretty normal names."
"Normal?"
"No Chets or Wellingtons or anything."
He raises one eyebrow. "Do you know any Wellingtons?"
"Of course not, but you probably do."
"No, actually I don't. #Quote by Kasie West
Pretty quotes by Scott Stossel
#121. My parents were not perfect, but no one's parents are. As childhoods go, mine was pretty comfortable and good in a lot of ways, and yet I still ended up with anxiety. #Quote by Scott Stossel
Pretty quotes by Amy Engel
#122. He glances back at me. "But there's hardly ever any activity outside the fence these days, at least close by. Only the people we put out, and they rarely try to get back into Westfall. I guess they figure it's better to take your chances out there than be guaranteed a death sentence in here."
"Either option sounds pretty horrible to me."
Bishop shrugs. "I don't know, sometimes I think we should just tear down the fence. Towns didn't have fences around them before the war and everything was fine. I think it was supposed to keep us safe, but instead it's made us scared. #Quote by Amy Engel
Pretty quotes by Lionel Shriver
#123. Sheer obstinacy is far more durable than courage, though it's not as pretty. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Pretty quotes by Gerard Butler
#124. I was born in Glasgow. But my family is pretty much from a little town called Paisley, famous for its cotton mills and paisley pattern. #Quote by Gerard Butler
Pretty quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#125. (from chapter 19, "Willi Ossa")

"...when I did [become a pastor], I knew that it was a vocation, not a job. I told my friends in the Company [of Pastors] the story of Willi...We were honing our observational skills in discerning the difference between vocation and job. As we were seeing pastors left and right abandoning their vocations and taking jobs, we were determined to keep the distinction clear for ourselves. A job is an assignment to do work that can be quantified and evaluated. It is pretty easy to decide whether a job has been completed or not. It is pretty easy to tell whether a job is done well or badly.

But a vocation is not a job in that sense. I can be hired to do a job, paid a fair wage if I do it, dismissed if I don't. But I can't be hired to be a pastor, for my primary responsibility is not to the people I serve tu to the God I serve. As it turns out, the people I serve would often prefer an idol who would do what they want done rather than do what God, revealed in Jesus, wants them to do. In our present culture, the sharp distinction between a job and a vocation is considerably blurred. How do I, as a pastor, prevent myself from thinking of my work as a job that I get paid for, a job that is assigned to me by my denomination, a job that I am expected to do to the satisfaction of my congregation? How do I stay attentive to and listening to the call that got me started in this way of life - not a call to make the church attractive and use #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Pretty quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#126. You study any pretty democracy, from the ancient Greeks forward, and you'll see that the only way each system functions is with a working class of slaves. Peons to haul the garbage so the upper crust can campaign and vote. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Pretty quotes by Jonathan Horton
#127. My first workout starts at 9:00 a.m. every morning. I'm in the gym from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. We do strength conditioning, stretching, pretty intense workouts in the morning. We go back in the gym at 1:00 p.m. and train until 5:00 p.m. It's all routines, repetition, doing the same skills over and over again, trying to polish and perfect everything. I head home, eat dinner, spend some time with my wife and start over the next day. I train about six days per week. #Quote by Jonathan Horton
Pretty quotes by Nicole Kidman
#128. I think that the most difficult thing is allowing yourself to be loved, so receiving the love and feeling like you deserve it is a pretty big struggle. I suppose that's what I've learnt recently, to allow myself to be loved. #Quote by Nicole Kidman
Pretty quotes by Catherine Keener
#129. I was a waitress. I was pretty good at it. I liked to solve those puzzles-you know, when to put the dinner order in, that sort of thing. #Quote by Catherine Keener
Pretty quotes by Shooter Jennings
#130. L.A.'s cool; I had a run with it to where it just pretty much wore me out. I love the weather and I have great friends there, great family, but I really cannot take a lot of the culture. Like Nashville, where everybody's a songwriter, everybody out there is an actor. #Quote by Shooter Jennings
Pretty quotes by Pauly Shore
#131. 'Entourage' is a staple L.A.-based show, and people say it's pretty real, and I thought it was. It's an exaggeration of the truth. #Quote by Pauly Shore
Pretty quotes by Reggie Fils-Aime
#132. The government is already involved from an entertainment standpoint. I mean, they regulate a large part of our entertainment. What we're trying to do as an industry is be proactive and drive it much more positively, much more effectively, than the government can, and that's what the ESA is all about[ ... ]We think we're doing a pretty effective job, and certainly from an Nintendo perspective, we think the ESA is the way to go. #Quote by Reggie Fils-Aime
Pretty quotes by Nicole Grace
#133. It is after days of
Soaking in these downpours
That the land can drink in
The bounty,
That the bejeweled trees can
Accept nature's offering.
While the dewy greens are
Very pretty, and the
Running streams make the most
Gentle trickling sounds
There is no healing until the
Water is absorbed. #Quote by Nicole Grace
Pretty quotes by T.J. Klune
#134. Anyway," I said loudly. "Are we good? Did the Priest give us enough hoodoo so we can get the fu - fudge out? Sorry, Father."
"It's okay," the priest assured me. "I'm pretty sure your soul is already doomed. #Quote by T.J. Klune

Pretty quotes by Don Henley
#137. It was pretty frightening because as we all know, when large, famous groups breakup, a lot of the members don't survive in solo careers. #Quote by Don Henley
Pretty quotes by Avril Lavigne
#138. Influences come from everywhere. I don't really feel like I had too many influences for the first record because I grew up listening to music in church, and that was pretty much it. I didn't really grow up listening to AC/DC and all those bands. #Quote by Avril Lavigne
Pretty quotes by Ophelia London
#139. I'd wondered about it before, even felt a few pretty strong impulses, but this was the first time I really thought about kissing her, right this instant, like I could already taste her lips, breathe in her skin at the side of her neck, feel the curves of her body against mine as I eased her back onto the sand, my fingers tangling in her soft blond hair, sliding under her clothes ... #Quote by Ophelia London
Pretty quotes by Mignon McLaughlin
#140. A woman will do anything to keep a pretty figure, but hardly anything to get one. #Quote by Mignon McLaughlin
Pretty quotes by Brian Posehn
#141. Just got a new car - got a little Miata convertible. Pretty happy about it, except for one thing: I'm 6-foot-6, so now I look like a McDonald's toy. #Quote by Brian Posehn
Pretty quotes by Nicholas Day
#142. Seemingly every culture before our own has had a single acceptable way to raise a baby. These cultures wouldn't have cared about the new scientific findings: they already knew how babies worked. Their answers were all very different, mind you, but they had this in common: all the other answers were wrong.

Such confidence makes sense. If you have to raise a baby, not study a baby, you'd better settle on an answer, and as long as you have settled on an answer, you may as well be certain about it. Pretty much everyone has been very certain. But if everyone has been very certain, and everyone's certainty has been very different, you start to suspect that there aren't that many certainties after all. There's no one true path. Or put another way: the one true path is forked. #Quote by Nicholas Day
Pretty quotes by Dan Wells
#143. 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
Pretty quotes by Rachel Miner
#144. A lot of people will call me nuts or crazy, but I've always been pretty stable. By some people's standards, I might be crazy. But I realize that I'm not going to harm anyone, and the only place that I live is within my own universe, really - so it's O.K. #Quote by Rachel Miner
Pretty quotes by Elizabeth Lim
#145. All they could do was flutter their fans and bat their eyes. The matchmaker Mother hired bragged that they were perfect porcelain dolls. What she didn't say was they had no minds of their own." Shang grimaced at the memory without looking at her. "They'd say anything to make me like them."
How familiar that sounds. Mulan put her hands on her hips. "Not all girls are like that. You have to look at it from their perspective, too. Girls are raised to be pretty and graceful, and quiet." She made a face. "They aren't allowed to speak their minds, and they don't have a choice in who they marry. My parents were lucky that they fell in love, but their marriage was arranged, too. And my mother, she doesn't even belong to her family anymore after they got married. It wasn't my mother's decision, but her family's. They told her that a woman's only role in life is to bear sons."
Shang leaned forward. "You sound quite passionate about this."
His closeness made Mulan hunch back. Remembering who she was pretending to be, she felt her cheeks burn. "I just... I mean, I bet there are some girls who'd make better soldiers than boys. If they were given the chance."
"A female soldier? That's the craziest thing I've heard."
"Girls can be strong, too."
"Not like us, Ping."
Mulan hid a smile. "You'd be surprised. #Quote by Elizabeth Lim
Pretty quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#146. 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
Pretty quotes by Claes Oldenburg
#147. If you really want to be an artist, you search yourself, and you find a lot of it comes from earlier times. I have pretty much built the work around my experiences. When I've moved from one place to another, the work has changed. #Quote by Claes Oldenburg
Pretty quotes by Phil Vischer
#148. It is pretty clear in the Bible story that the whale swallowing Jonah wasn't meant as a punishment from God, it was God saving him from drowning. So it was actually provision to give him a second chance. The whale itself was the start of Jonah's second chance. #Quote by Phil Vischer

Pretty quotes by Oren Peli

Pretty quotes by Kiersten White
#152. I jumped up, my hands in the air. "Yes!"
Lend laughed. "Okay, looks like I need to make a run to the grocery store. Do faeries hate wheat or white bread more, you think?"
"Get bread with raisins," I said. "Everyone hates raisins."
Jack was bouncing, obviously excited. "That's all we need, right?"
"We need Reth."
"No," Lend and Jack whined in unison.
"Come on, you two. Reth knows the Faerie Realms better than you do. Jack, you didn't see where the people were; it might take you a while to find them, and that's time we can't afford to lose. And Reth's getting worse; being there might give him more time."
Lend scowled, grabbing the car keys off the counter. "Fine. But I'm really getting tired of his stupid smirk and prissy clothes."
Jack nodded. "And his voice that sounds like it'd even taste good. Really, it's overkill. Best to have only a few absolutely perfect traits - for example, my hair and eyes and sparkling personality - so you don't overwhelm them."
"Aww, are you guys jealous of how pretty Reth is? That's kind of adorable."
"You know I could look exactly like him," Lend said, frowning darkly.
"Please for the love of all that is good and holy, never, ever wear Reth. That's the stuff of nightmares."
That brightened his face a bit and he left me with a lingering kiss and a promise to be back with every loaf of bread we could carry.
"Well, go find your stupid faerie boyfriend," Jack said, lying down on top of #Quote by Kiersten White
Pretty quotes by Octave Mirbeau
#153. After two years' absence she finally returned to chilly Europe, a trifle weary, a trifle sad, disgusted by our banal entertainments, our shrunken landscapes, our impoverished lovemaking. Her soul had remained over there, among the gigantic, poisonous flowers. She missed the mystery of old temples and the ardor of a sky blazing with fever, sensuality and death. The better to relive all these magnificent, raging memories, she became a recluse, spending entire days lying about on tiger skins, playing with those pretty Nepalese knives 'which dissipate one's dreams'. #Quote by Octave Mirbeau
Pretty quotes by Jack Kerouac
#154. Pretty soon there'll be a new kind of murderer, who will kill without any reason at all, just to prove that it doesn't matter, and his accomplishment will be worth no more and no less than Beethoven's last quartets and Boito's Requiem-- churches will fall, Mongolian hordes will piss on the map of the West, idiot kings will burp at bones, nobody'll care and then the earth itself'll disintegrate into atomic dust (as it was in the beginning) and the void still the void won't care, the void'll just go on with that maddening little smile of its that I see everywhere, I look at a tree, a rock, a house, a street, I see that little smile-- That 'secret God-grin' but what a God is this who didn't invent justice?--So they'll light candles and make speeches and the angels rage. Ah but 'I don't know, I don't care, and it doesn't matter' will be the final human prayer. #Quote by Jack Kerouac
Pretty quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#155. Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. They are but improved means to an unimproved end, an end which it was already but too easy to arrive at; as railroads lead to Boston or New York. We are in great haste to construct a magnetic telegraph from Maine to Texas; but Maine and Texas, it may be, have nothing important to communicate. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Pretty quotes by Kim Coles
#156. Open the GIFTS actually came out of this quest. I ended up going into a pretty deep depression that people don't know about, and now I'm talking about it. I was too focused on, If I'm not working, who am I? Why am I not doing that thing that I want to do the most? Why am I not successful in this moment? #Quote by Kim Coles

Pretty quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#158. We're doomed to repeat the past no matter what. That's what it is to be alive. It's pretty dense kids who haven't figured that out by the time they're ten ... Most kids can't afford to go to Harvard and be misinformed. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Pretty quotes by Tom Wolfe
#159. Vietnam was really an idealistic thing to stop the spread of communism, which, incidentally, it did. It was a pretty costly way to do it, but it achieved its goal. #Quote by Tom Wolfe
Pretty quotes by Tory Nyhaug
#160. If you come off the start in a final in fourth or fifth, realistically, the best you can probably do is a podium - squeeze second, third. The chance of you winning at any major race if you get cut off down the hill is pretty remote. #Quote by Tory Nyhaug
Pretty quotes by ASAP Rocky
#161. I was ashamed to let anyone know that I was living in a shelter. I remember one time coming home and some kids saw me and were like, "What you doing here? This is a shelter!" But I was like, "My mom's working there." It was pretty embarrassing. #Quote by ASAP Rocky
Pretty quotes by Kate Grenville
#162. Words are a pretty blunt instrument. There's always going to be slippage between the words and the infinite complexities of a thought. As a writer, I find that frustrating, but as a social animal, I wouldn't have it any other way. #Quote by Kate Grenville
Pretty quotes by John Grisham
#163. With murder, the victim is gone, and not forced to deal with what happened to her. The family must deal with it, but not the victim. But rape is much worse. The victim has a lifetime of coping, trying to understand, of asking questions, and the worst part, of knowing the rapist is still alive and may someday escape or be released. Every hour of every day, the victim thinks of the rape and asks herself a thousand questions. She relives it, step by step, minute by minute, and it hurts just as bad.
Perhaps the most horrible crime of all is the violent rape of a child. A woman who is raped has a pretty good idea why it happened. Some animal was filled with hatred, anger and violence. But a child? A ten-year-old child? Suppose you're a parent. Imagine yourself trying to explain to your child why she was raped. Imagine yourself trying to explain why she cannot bear children. #Quote by John Grisham
Pretty quotes by Christy Hayes
#164. She was this girl I once knew. Took my breath away, she was so pretty. Took my heart, if you want to know the truth. I was kind of angry about it at the time. #Quote by Christy Hayes

Pretty quotes by Marissa Meyer
#167. Thing is, you were pretty memorable that night, too, what with being publicly humiliated, almost shot in the head, and ultimately arrested. So it strikes me as odd that you seem to be doing everything you can to figure out a way to go back there. #Quote by Marissa Meyer

Pretty quotes by Wendell Berry
#170. If you're a writer and you are at all inclined to speak as a Christian in some way, you realize very quickly that the conventional language is pretty much useless. It takes a long time to get past that, or it has taken me a long time. People in conventional Christianity have spoken lightly and sometimes frivolously of God for a long time. It's a word that needs to be used sparingly, in my opinion. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Pretty quotes by Sherwood Smith
#171. When she was done, I said, "Thanks, Ria. That's as good as an afternoon nap in the summer."
"A shame you have to put it up again," she said, smiling. "It's so pretty--the color of autumn leaves. Promise you'll never cut it."
"I won't. It's the only thing I have left to share with my mother, the color of our hair. And she always wanted me to grow it out." My fingers worked quickly from old habit as I braided it up again, wrapped it twice around my head, and tucked the end in. "But I can't parade around in long hair during a war. Or, I suppose I could, except then I'd end up carrying half the mountain in it."
"You can wear it down after we win, then, and start a new fashion."
"You'll be the one starting the fashions," I said, laughing up at her.
"Duchess Oria," she said, swishing around my tiny tent. "New silk shoes every day--twice a day! I can hardly wait."
"That'll do," Julen said to Oria. She was vigorously brushing mud off my alternate pair of woolen trousers. "You stop your nonsense and go and get your rest. We'll have to make a supply run again tomorrow." Oria stuck her tongue out at her mother, grinned at me, and ran out. Julen laid my other tunic down. "This is the best I can make of these trousers; the mud will not come out. Your brother's old tunic looks even worse," she said, frowning heavily. "I wish I could wash these properly! Even so, they wouldn't look much better. 'Tis shameful, you not dressing to befit your station. Especially o #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Pretty quotes by Oscar Eccentric
#172. Who can blame the poor lad for not advertising his rather unique name? Especially when his mother's maiden name is Jewel Diamond Sunrise and his grandmother's is Dawn Moonbeam Sunrise. Dawn Sunrise, such a pretty name. And it is true that your mother was almost named Red Sky Sunrise, but your grandfather said he would divorce her mother if she didn't change it. He was in the navy and thought that it was a bad omen. Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning, you know. And Max's grandmother didn't tell anyone that she considered calling her daughter Sunset Sunrise. Catchy isn't it? #Quote by Oscar Eccentric
Pretty quotes by Joseph Conrad
#173. They were no colonists; their administration was merely a squeeze, and nothing more, I suspect. They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force - nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others. They grabbed what they could get for the sake of what was to be got. It was just robbery with violence, aggravated murder on a great scale, and men going at it blind - as is very proper for those who tackle a darkness. The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much. What redeems it is the idea only. An idea at the back of it; not a sentimental pretence but an idea; and an unselfish belief in the idea - something you can set up, and bow down before, and offer a sacrifice to #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Pretty quotes by Kristin Hannah
#174. Rain Valley newcomers pretty much fell into two groups: people running away from something and people running away from everything. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Pretty quotes by Ron Jaworski
#175. I'm not a Saban guy, because I don't like liars, and I think he lied. I think he lied to the Miami Dolphins and to the fans of Miami, and he left. And it's pretty simple: I think integrity is very important; if you don't have integrity, I don't know how you can be successful. #Quote by Ron Jaworski
Pretty quotes by Joe Swanberg
#176. I'm a pretty hands-off director. I let people try things, and if it gets over-jokey, then I'll try and rein it in a little bit. #Quote by Joe Swanberg
Pretty quotes by Ally Condie
#177. In my own life, I'm pretty good at choosing between good and bad. It's the choices between good and good I find the most difficult to make. #Quote by Ally Condie
Pretty quotes by Jonathan Jackson
#178. Often times, if a character is pretty straightforward, he or she is not as interesting to portray. #Quote by Jonathan Jackson
Pretty quotes by Terry Gross
#179. I work in a medium where I get to be totally invisible and I get great pleasure from that, being a pretty self-conscious person. #Quote by Terry Gross
Pretty quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#180. And so,' smiled the Witcher, 'I have no choice? I have to enter into a pact with you, a pact which should someday become the subject of a painting, and become a sorcerer? Give me a break. I know a little about the theory of heredity. My father, as I discovered with no little difficulty, was a wanderer, a churl, a troublemaker and a swashbuckler. My genes on the spear side may be dominant over the genes on the distaff side. The fact that I can swash a buckler pretty well seems to confirm that. #Quote by Andrzej Sapkowski
Pretty quotes by Fetty Wap
#181. People make their life really hard. It was as simple as this: My parents went to church. My grandfather was a bishop. My mom sang in the choir, my dad played the keyboard, and my uncle played the drums. I was into playing the drums, so I played the drums a lot for my uncle, and it got to the point where I was pretty nice at playing the drums. And he let me play every Sunday so, to me, going to church was fun. #Quote by Fetty Wap
Pretty quotes by C.S. Lewis
#182. And just as the Witch Jadis had looked different when you saw her in our world instead of in her own, so the fruit of that mountain garden looked different too. There were of course all sorts of colored things in the bedroom; the colored counterpane on the bed, the wallpaper, the sunlight from the window, and Mother's pretty, pale blue dressing jacket. But the moment Digory took the Apple out of his pocket, all those things seemed to have scarcely any color at all. Everyone of them, even the sunlight, looked faded and dingy. The brightness of the Apple threw strange lights on the ceiling. Nothing else was worth looking at: you couldn't look at anything else. And the smell of the Apple of Youth was as if there was a window in the room that opened on Heaven. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Pretty quotes by Kristen Ashley
#183. Apparently Super Max was pretty content with taking care of half the town, such was his wonderfulness. #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Pretty quotes by E. Lockhart
#184. I used to be strong,but now I am weak.
I used to be pretty,but now I look sick. #Quote by E. Lockhart
Pretty quotes by Jonathan Tropper
#185. I'm not a fan of country music, but there's no better music to drive to. Turn the right song up loud enough on the Porsche's sound system and it will swallow you whole. The past is prelude and the future is a black hole, but right now, hurtling north across state lines for no particular reason, I have to say, it feels pretty good to be me. #Quote by Jonathan Tropper
Pretty quotes by Philip K. Dick
#186. You put on a bishop's robe and miter, he pondered, and walk around in that, and people bow and genuflect and like that, and try to kiss your ring, if not your ass, and pretty soon you're a bishop. So to speak. What is identity? he asked himself. Where does the act end? Nobody knows. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Pretty quotes by Bengie Molina
#187. I'm a pretty easygoing guy. I'm not hard to get along with. I never had anybody that I had trouble with. On the other team, sometimes you don't like players because of the way they act, but then you get to know them and then they're very good people. But I never disliked anybody. #Quote by Bengie Molina
Pretty quotes by Dustin Johnson
#188. I sign autographs and try to be as nice to people as possible, and I do pretty well with that. I understand the importance of it. #Quote by Dustin Johnson
Pretty quotes by Miranda Neville
#189. He'd kept his figure despite being past his first youth. Pretty good for nearly forty.
Who was she fooling? She knew quite well that he was thirty-five and a half, exactly five years older than she. Their birthdays were two days apart. It was absurd the way trivial facts lingered in the memory, facts as unimportant as what she had for dinner on Tuesday. Except that she couldn't remember last week's menu and she was annoyingly aware of Max Quinton's preference for lamb over beef, for apple tart over syllabub. He preferred Shakespeare to the modern poets, the country to the town. #Quote by Miranda Neville
Pretty quotes by Ted Chiang
#190. Raising a child puts you in touch, deeply, inescapably, daily, with some pretty heady issues: What is love and how do we get ours? Why does the world contain evil and pain and loss? How can we discover dignity and tolerance? Who is in power and why? What's the best way to resolve conflict? If we want to give an AI any major responsibilities, then it will need good answers to these questions. That's not going to happen by loading the works of Kant into a computer's memory; it's going to require the equivalent of good parenting. #Quote by Ted Chiang
Pretty quotes by Jeff Dunham
#191. Jeff: Are you married?
Bubba J.: Yep.
Jeff: Your wife pretty?
Bubba J.: Ye... no!
Jeff: What's the difference?
Bubba J.: The light. #Quote by Jeff Dunham
Pretty quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#192. She was so plain that neither of them could think of her as a rival, so they began dressing her with perfect sincerity, and with the naive and firm conviction women have that dress can make a face pretty. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Pretty quotes by Harvey Pekar
#193. Even a pretty traditional comic book writer can make valuable contributions to the Internet. #Quote by Harvey Pekar
Pretty quotes by Leigh Bingham Nash
#194. I love my voice. But I'd be the first one to make a criticism of it, so I'm not the best person to critique because I'm pretty hard on myself. #Quote by Leigh Bingham Nash
Pretty quotes by Amy Schumer
#195. I tend to eat pretty healthy, though, and I work out - I work out hard. #Quote by Amy Schumer
Pretty quotes by Jason Versey
#196. Every great accomplishment has its share of struggle, adversity and pain. Great achievement cannot exist without them. To reap the rewards of success in our marriages, in the lives of our children, and in our professional careers we must be prepared to push through some pretty tough moments. But trust me... on the other side of that struggle awaits an intrinsic reward that is worth more than gold. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Pretty quotes by Daniel Woodrell
#197. Texas humor and Southern humor are pretty similar. #Quote by Daniel Woodrell
Pretty quotes by Mark Wahlberg
#198. Pretty early on in making the first movie I realized that this is what I wanted to do. I felt like by that time I just found my niche, like this is what I was supposed to be doing. So I completely submerged myself into the world of watching movies, making my own movies, buying video cameras and lights. When I wasn't making a movie, I was making my own movies. When I wasn't making movies, I was watching movies. I was going back and studying film and looking back at guys that were perceived as great guys that I can identify with. It just became my life. #Quote by Mark Wahlberg
Pretty quotes by LaDainian Tomlinson
#199. I want to have a family and teach them the way to live their lives, pretty much the way I was raised, with a lot of love and the Lord. I want them to stay off the streets, and to have goals and dreams. #Quote by LaDainian Tomlinson
Pretty quotes by Billy Burke
#200. The end of times has always been a fascination. But post 9/11, pretty much everybody will admit to having it on their minds more frequently than when they were a kid. #Quote by Billy Burke
