Ridiculous quotes by Tamsin Greig
#1. When I was 17, a neighbour I knew well died of cancer, and I became au pair to her three little girls. In circumstances like that, when you can't really help, I think it's a human response to do something beyond oneself. So I did a sponsored parachute jump for Cancer Research. It was exciting and ridiculous. #Quote by Tamsin Greig
Ridiculous quotes by Randy Newman
#2. I think the tax cut is ridiculous but so am I. #Quote by Randy Newman
Ridiculous quotes by Giuliana Rancic
#3. This face. What is it like to wake up to this face? #Quote by Giuliana Rancic
Ridiculous quotes by Timothy Leary
#4. Half the things I've done are wrong, mistakes [unintelligible]. The moratorium on pot and LSD a year ago is ridiculous. I shouldn't have done that. I make a blunder at least one out of two times I come to bat. #Quote by Timothy Leary
Ridiculous quotes by James Howard Kunstler
#5. The sentimental view of anything is apt to be ridiculous, #Quote by James Howard Kunstler
Ridiculous quotes by Natalie Crown
#6. Kammy jerked upright. It was as though the trees had parted beneath the pressure of the storm and a bolt of lightning had struck her. She had never entered the mouth for it had always been much too small. Yet, she had never seen anything else enter it either. The thought alone made her feel sick with excitement and fear. A small voice told Kammy that such a reaction was ridiculous, it was just a squirrel. But warmth spread to the tips of Kammy's fingers as they stretched forward. She could see now that it was not a burrow at all, but a tunnel large enough for her to fit through. She was quite sure that she would not even have to bend her head. The same small voice tried to speak again but Kammy could not hear it through the rush of blood in her ears.
Kammy stepped inside the mouth of the forest and felt herself flipped upside down. #Quote by Natalie Crown
Ridiculous quotes by Leila Sales
#7. It was a ridiculous question. Did I _love_ Char? Did I feel about Char the same way I feel about the Beatles, string instruments in pop songs, the way Little Anthony sang high notes, the way Jerry Lee Lewis played piano? #Quote by Leila Sales
Ridiculous quotes by Victor Kloss
#8. Charlie said, his voice rising an octave in desperation. "I know it's ridiculous, but I keep trying to rationalise everything and it's driving me crazy. Did you spot that flying horse earlier? I found myself trying to explain it with Darwin's Theory of Evolution. #Quote by Victor Kloss
Ridiculous quotes by Alexandra Potter
#9. I am a hopeless romantic. A silly, ridiculous, foolish romantic. I live in a fantasy land. I need to get real. And now, for the first time, I want to get real. I want a real relationship with a real man in the real world–-with all the real problems, faults, and whatever comes with it. #Quote by Alexandra Potter
Ridiculous quotes by Antonin Artaud
#10. This is why a tainted society has invented psychiatry to defend itself against the investigations of certain superior intellects whose faculties of divination would be troublesome.
No, van Gogh was not mad, but his paintings were bursts of Greek fire, atomic bombs, whose angle of vision would have been capable of seriously upsetting the spectral conformity of the
bourgeoisie.
In comparison with the lucidity of van Gogh, psychiatry is no better than a den of apes who are themselves obsessed and persecuted and who possess nothing to mitigate the most appalling states of anguish and human suffocation but a ridiculous terminology. To a man, this whole gang of pected scoundrels and patented quacks are all erotomaniacs. #Quote by Antonin Artaud
Ridiculous quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#11. And in fact you're not like everyone else: you weren't ashamed just now to confess bad and even ridiculous things about yourself. Who would confess such things nowadays? No one, and people have even stopped feeling any need for self-judgment. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Ridiculous quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#12. Sudden I stopped. I was out of breath. I asked myself, "What is this all about? What is the meaning of this ceaseless rush? This is ridiculous!" Then I declared independence, and said, "I do not care if I go to dinner. I do not care whether I make a talk. I do not have to go to this dinner and I do not have to make a speech." So deliberately and slowly I walked back to my room and took my time about unlocking the door. I telephoned the man downstairs and said, "If you want to eat, go ahead. If you want to save a place for me, I will be down after a while, but I am not going to rush any more." So I removed my coat, sat down, took off my shoes, put my feet up on the table, and just sat. Then I opened the Bible and very slowly read aloud the 121st Psalm, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help." I closed the book and had a little talk with myself, saying, "Come on now, start living a slower and more relaxed life," and then I affirmed, "God is here and His #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Ridiculous quotes by Beth Fantaskey
#13. I wanted to die. Die right there. I wanted to run to the knife drawer, grab the biggest blade I could find, and plunge it into my heart. To be exposed as never even being kissed ... it was
almost worse than being a vampire princess. The vampire thing was a ridiculous fantasy, but my total lack of experience ... that was real. "Mom! That is so embarrassing! Did you have to tell him that?"
Well, Jessica, it's true. I don't want Lucius thinking you're some sort of experienced young woman, ready for marriage. #Quote by Beth Fantaskey
Ridiculous quotes by Edsger W. Dijkstra
#14. By claiming that they can contribute to software engineering, the soft scientists make themselves even more ridiculous. (Not less dangerous, alas!) In spite of its name, software engineering requires (cruelly) hard science for its support. #Quote by Edsger W. Dijkstra
Ridiculous quotes by Chelsea M. Cameron
#15. Do you have a red velvet cake?" "Of course," the waiter said, as if this was a ridiculous question. How dare I assume that they didn't have red velvet cake. The nerve. #Quote by Chelsea M. Cameron
Ridiculous quotes by Renee Ahdieh
#16. We women are a sad lot, aren't we?"
"What do you mean?"
"Strong enough to take on the world with our bare hands, yet we permit ridiculous boys to make fools of us."
"I am not a fool."
"No, you're not. Not yet. #Quote by Renee Ahdieh
Ridiculous quotes by David Hume
#17. Generally speaking, the errors in religion are dangerous; those in philosophy only ridiculous. #Quote by David Hume
Ridiculous quotes by Jeremy Renner
#18. Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people. #Quote by Jeremy Renner
Ridiculous quotes by Taryn Manning
#19. I have so many songs, it's ridiculous. I love so many different types of music and tend to write all over the map, style-wise. R&B, rock 'n' roll, screamers, pop, good-time songs. #Quote by Taryn Manning
Ridiculous quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#20. The words 'bad timing' came to be ghosts haunting our every move in Birmingham. Yet people who used this argument were ignorant of the background of our planning ... they did not realize that it was ridiculous to speak of timing when the clock of history showed that the Negro had already suffered one hundred years of delay. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Ridiculous quotes by Max H. Bazerman
#21. Consider the recent financial crisis and its link to faulty reward systems. President Bill Clinton's objective of increasing homeownership by rewarding potential home buyers and lenders is one example. The Clinton administration "went to ridiculous lengths" to increase homeownership in the United State, promoting "paper-thin down payments" and pushing lenders to give mortgage loans to unqualified buyers according to Business Week editor Peter Coy. #Quote by Max H. Bazerman
Ridiculous quotes by Raul Labrador
#22. The left claims that Republicans hate Hispanics, which is just the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard, and the right just claims all we need to do is close the borders and do nothing else, which is also ridiculous. #Quote by Raul Labrador
Ridiculous quotes by David Millar
#23. It was ridiculous really. I had just won a major race despite not being in top form, yet I was going to dope. #Quote by David Millar
Ridiculous quotes by Angela Thirkell
#24. ...And of course they'll get their milk from us, because Gooch's milk in the village really can't be trusted. I do hope, Henry, the vicarage drains are all right if Martin is to go there, because the French are rather vague about drains.'

'Yes, but darling, they aren't bringing their drains with them'... #Quote by Angela Thirkell
Ridiculous quotes by Cassandra Clare
#25. You invited him into bed?" Simon demanded, looking shaken. "Ridiculous, isn't it?" said Jace. "We would never have all fit. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Ridiculous quotes by Daniel Kehlmann
#26. One of the points where the art world is at its most metaphysical is in this weird aspect of the power of the expert. There are experts who claim they cannot be fooled because they have an inner connection to an artist and can feel whether something is genuine or fake. I've heard experts say, on panels: When it comes to my period, or my painters, I cannot be fooled. And of course that's completely ridiculous. #Quote by Daniel Kehlmann
Ridiculous quotes by Ben Rector
#27. It's crazy to think of myself as a musician. It's ridiculous that I get to do it, and I don't necessarily mean music. Getting to do something you really enjoy as a job is an incredible privilege, I think. I still don't really feel like a musician outside of the actual music. #Quote by Ben Rector
Ridiculous quotes by John Ashbery
#28. I lost my ridiculous accent without acquiring another #Quote by John Ashbery
Ridiculous quotes by Frank Norris
#29. Things can happen in some cities and the tale of them will be interesting: the same story laid in another city would be ridiculous. #Quote by Frank Norris
Ridiculous quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#30. It is not every man who can be a Christian, even in a very moderate sense, whatever education you give him. It is a matter of constitution and temperament, after all. He may have to be born again many times. I have known many a man who pretended to be a Christian, in whom it was ridiculous, for he had no genius for it. It is not every man who can be a free man, even. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Ridiculous quotes by John Foxe
#31. That to fancy the words of consecration perform what the papists call transubstantiation, by converting the wafer and wine into the real and identical body and blood of Christ, which was crucified, and which afterward ascended into heaven, is too gross an absurdity for even a child to believe, who was come to the least glimmering of reason; and that nothing but the most blind superstition could make the Roman Catholics put a confidence in anything so completely ridiculous. #Quote by John Foxe
Ridiculous quotes by Jon Favreau
#32. I'm a very lazy person by nature. I have to be really engaged, and then I go straight from lazy to obsessive. I couldn't study chemistry, but I could memorize all the books for Dungeons and Dragons. It was ridiculous. The trick is to find what I like to do. #Quote by Jon Favreau
Ridiculous quotes by George Eliot
#33. There were intervals in which she could sit perfectly still, enjoying the outer stillness and the subdued light. The red fire with its gently audible movement seemed like a solemn existence calmly independent of the petty passions, the imbecile desires, the straining after worthless uncertainties, which were daily moving her contempt. Mary was fond of her own thoughts, and could amuse herself well sitting in the twilight with her hands in her lap; for, having early had strong reason to believe that things were not likely to be arranged for her peculiar satisfaction, she wasted no time in astonishment and annoyance at that fact. And she had already come to take life very much as a comedy in which she had a proud, nay, a generous resolution not to act the mean or treacherous part. Mary might have become cynical if she had not had parents whom she honoured, and a well of affectionate gratitude within her, which was all the fuller because she had learned to make no unreasonable claims.

She sat to-night revolving, as she was wont, the scenes of the day, her lips often curling with amusement at the oddities to which her fancy added fresh drollery: people were so ridiculous with their illusions, carrying their fools' caps unawares, thinking their own lies opaque while everybody else's were transparent, making themselves exceptions to everything, as if when all the world looked yellow under a lamp they alone were rosy. #Quote by George Eliot
Ridiculous quotes by Isaac Asimov
#34. What do you call that nice, shiny white metal they use to make sidings and airplanes out of? Aluminum, right? Aluminum, pronounced 'uh-LOO-mih-num', right? Anybody knows that! But do you know how the British spell it? 'Aluminium', pronounced 'Al-yoo-MIH-nee-um'. Ever hear anything so ridiculous? The French and Germans spell it 'aluminium', too, but they're foreigners who don't speak Earth-standard. You'd think the British, however, using our language, would be more careful #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Ridiculous quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#35. Fate is the malevolent little jester sitting up in the heavens and pondering over how ridiculous we humans are and he does his best to make fools out of all of us. And sooner or later he succeeds. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Ridiculous quotes by Poppy Delevingne
#36. It would be ridiculous for me to say I am unlucky, but, like any other family and any other girl, I've had my ups and downs. #Quote by Poppy Delevingne
Ridiculous quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#37. In youth, the powers of the mind are directed wholly to the future, and that future assumes such various, vivid, and alluring forms under the influence of hope; hope based, not upon the experience of the past, but upon an assumed possibility of happiness to come, that dreams of expected felicity constitute in themselves the true happiness of that period of our life. Only God Himself knows whether those blessed dreams of youth were ridiculous, or whose the fault was that they never became realized. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Ridiculous quotes by Albert Camus
#38. Living, naturally, is never easy. You continue making the gestures commanded by existence for many reasons, the first of which is habit. Dying voluntarily implies that you have recognized, even instinctively, the ridiculous character of that habit, the absence of any profound reason for living, the insane character of that daily agitation and the uselessness of suffering. #Quote by Albert Camus
Ridiculous quotes by Jackie Mason
#39. I don't believe that anybody has come to a conclusion on why something is funny. It's funny because it's ridiculous and it's ridiculous for different reasons at different times. #Quote by Jackie Mason
Ridiculous quotes by Kanye West
#40. I'm a pop enigma. I live and breathe every element in life. I rock a bespoke suit and I go to Harold's for fried chicken. It's all these things at once, because, as a taste maker, I find the best of everything. #Quote by Kanye West
Ridiculous quotes by David Mitchell
#41. Finished in a frenzy that reminded me of our last night in Cambridge. Watched my final sunrise. Enjoyed a last cigarette. Didn't think the view could be any more perfect until I saw that beat-up trilby. Honestly, Sixsmith, as ridiculous as that thing makes you look, I don't believe I've ever seen anything more beautiful. Watched you for as long as I dared. I don't believe it was a fluke that I saw you first. I believe there is another world waiting for us, Sixsmith. A better world, and I'll be waiting for you there. I believe we do not stay dead long. Find me beneath the Corsican stars, where we first kissed.
Yours eternally, R.F. #Quote by David Mitchell
Ridiculous quotes by Tom Felton
#42. One thing that people keep on saying to me is that the wealth and the fame must have made up for missing out on my childhood. But the idea of money - putting a price on your childhood - is ridiculous. You will never get those years back and you can't put a price on them. #Quote by Tom Felton
Ridiculous quotes by Kim Kardashian
#43. Is that not ridiculous that people thought that Justin Bieber and I were on a vacation together, on a romantic vacation, in the Bahamas, and I just happened to wear a gown as my swimsuit and red lips and he's dressed in a suit in the ocean? Seriously who would walk to the beach like that? #Quote by Kim Kardashian
Ridiculous quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#44. A creative thought at first sight seems ridiculous and unimportant, an increase in those who cherish it reassures that hiding your creativity hides you for the rest of your life. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Ridiculous quotes by Noam Chomsky
#45. It's ridiculous to talk about freedom in a society dominated by huge corporations. What kind of freedom is there inside a corporation? They're totalitarian institutions - you take orders from above and maybe give them to people below you. There's about as much freedom as under Stalinism. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Ridiculous quotes by Haruki Murakami
#46. This all has got to be, patently, the most unbelievable, the most ridiculous story I have ever heard. Somehow coming from your mouth, it has the ring of truth, but I doubt anyone would believe me if I told them what happened today. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Ridiculous quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#47. If I am feeling stupid, angry, jealous, or humiliated, I bring total awareness and acknowledgment to those feelings. I admit my failures and own them. Then I usually start laughing as I realize how small and inconsequential I really am and also how ridiculous my problems are! #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Ridiculous quotes by Julie James
#48. You said she works at an ice-cream shop around here, right?" He made a big show of wiping the sweat off his brow. "Come to think of it, a nice double cone would really hit the spot in this heat."

Zach's expression was one of pure teenage mortification. "Yeah, because that's exactly what will help my inability to talk to her - my older brother watching and critiquing all my moves."

"I thought we'd already established that you don't have any moves."

"Now that's funny. Picking on someone half your age. Hey, here's an idea: I'll introduce you to Paige as soon as I meet this so-called smart, witty, and hot woman you're supposedly seeing. Sounds a lot like one of those made-up girlfriends who live in Niagara Falls."

"She's real. I'm seeing her tonight, in fact." They hadn't decided their specific plans yet, but Brooke had texted him last night, asking if he was free.

"Wow. You actually, like, beamed when you said that."

"Get out of here," Cade scoffed. "I did not."

"What's her name?"

Cade opened his mouth to answer, then paused.

Zach grinned. "Worried you can't say it without beaming again?"

Ridiculous. "Her name is Brooke." He deliberately maintained a straight face

Zach made a big show of studying him, presumably looking for any sign of this alleged "beaming." He stepped closer and then, with a comically scrutinizing face, slowly looked at one side of Cade's fa #Quote by Julie James
Ridiculous quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#49. The issue concerned a minor matter of etiquette: How should the president be addressed by members of Congress? While hardly an earthshaking question, it had symbolic significance because of the obsessive American suspicion of monarchy, which haunted all conversations about the powers of the presidency under the recently ratified constituion...Anyone who favored a strong exective was vulnerable to the charge of being a quasi-monarchist...Adams was so confident in his own revolutionary credentials that he regarded himself as immune to such charges, but when he lectured the Senate on the need for elaborate trappings of authority and proposed the President Washington be addressed as 'His Majesty' or 'His Highness,'his remarks became the butt of serveral barbed jokes, including the suggestion that he had been seized by 'nobilimania' during his long sojourn in England and might prefer to be addressed as 'His Rotundity'or the 'Duke of Braintree.' Jefferson threw up his hands at the sheer stupidity of Adam's proposals, calling them 'the most superlatively ridiculous thing I ever heard of. #Quote by Joseph J. Ellis
Ridiculous quotes by C.G. Jung
#50. Nothing could persuade me that "in the image of God" applied only to man. In fact it seemed to me that the high mountains, the rivers, lakes, trees, flowers and animals far better exemplified the essence of God than men with their ridiculous clothes, their meanness, vanity, mendacity, and abhorrent egotism - #Quote by C.G. Jung
Ridiculous quotes by Guy Deutscher
#51. Gladstone's was neither the first nor the last of great minds to be led astray by religious fervor, but in the case of his Studies on Homer, his convictions took the particular unfortunate turn of trying to marry Homer's pagan pantheon with the Christian creed. ... The Times was not amused: "Perfectly honest in his intentions, he takes up a theory, and no matter how ridiculous it is in reality, he can make it appear respectable in argument. Too clever by half! #Quote by Guy Deutscher
Ridiculous quotes by Pete Townshend
#52. Rock is very, very important and very, very ridiculous. #Quote by Pete Townshend
Ridiculous quotes by Horace
#53. What will this boaster produce worthy of this mouthing? The mountains are in labor; a ridiculous mouse will be born.
[Lat., Quid dignum tanto feret hic promissor hiatu?
Parturiunt montes; nascetur ridiculus mus.] #Quote by Horace
Ridiculous quotes by Ben Aaronovitch
#54. So that's when I came up with the most ridiculous plan since I'd decided to take a witness statement from a ghost. It was a plan so stupid that even Baldrick would have rejected it out of hand. #Quote by Ben Aaronovitch
Ridiculous quotes by J.R. Ward
#55. Butch : Two words for you. CYNDI.LAUPER
Vishous : Clearly, the paste you ate has gone to your head. Did Marissa like all that lace you glued on ? Oh ... and I'm talking to your body, not that ridiculous card you made her.
Butch : How does that song go ?
*sings song about true colors*
Vishous : I have no idea what you are talking about.
Butch : Oh.Really. So you deny that shit was playing in the weight room yesterday ?
Vishous : Please. Like I listen to crap like that ?
Butch : So you deny that song was also playing in the Escalade last night ?
Vishous : Don't act the fool.
Butch : So you deny that song was ALSO coming out of your shower early this morning. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Ridiculous quotes by Henry James
#56. When you lay down a proposition which is forthwith controverted, it is of course optional with you to take up the cudgels in its defence. If you are deeply convinced of its truth, you will perhaps be content to leave it to take care of itself; or, at all events, you will not go out of your way to push its fortunes; for you will reflect that in the long run an opinion often borrows credit from the forbearance of its patrons. In the long run, we say; it will meanwhile cost you an occasional pang to see your cherished theory turned into a football by the critics. A football is not, as such, a very respectable object, and the more numerous the players, the more ridiculous it becomes. Unless, therefore, you are very confident of your ability to rescue it from the chaos of kicks, you will best consult its interests by not mingling in the game. #Quote by Henry James
Ridiculous quotes by Stephen Fry
#57. What other developed democracy has such a ridiculous and squalid history of intolerance? From the imprisonment and roasting of heretics, witches and poachers, to the censorship of literature, art and television: from St Alban through Wilde, Joyce and Lawrence I think we can point with pride to as grim a catalogue of intemperate, bigoted repression as any nation on earth ... #Quote by Stephen Fry
Ridiculous quotes by Anonymous
#58. I urge you to travel. As far and as much as possible.

Work ridiculous shifts to save your money. Go without the latest iPhone. Throw yourself out of your comfort zone. Find out how other people live and realize that the world is a much bigger place than the town you live in.

And when you come home, home may still be the same. And yes, you may go back to the same old job, but something in you will have changed.

And trust me, that changes everything. #Quote by Anonymous
Ridiculous quotes by Savitri Devi
#59. A 'civilization' that makes such a ridiculous fuss about alleged 'war crimes' - acts of violence against the actual or potential enemies of one's cause - and tolerates slaughterhouses and vivisection laboratories, and circuses and the fur industry (infliction of pain upon creatures that can never be for or against any cause), does not deserve to live. #Quote by Savitri Devi
Ridiculous quotes by Agatha Christie
#60. It is ridiculous to set a detective story in New York City. New York City is itself a detective story. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Ridiculous quotes by Denis Diderot
#61. Man was born to live with his fellow human beings. Separate him, isolate him, his character will go bad, a thousand ridiculous affects will invade his heart, extravagant thoughts will germinate in his brain, like thorns in an uncultivated land. #Quote by Denis Diderot
Ridiculous quotes by Tom Cox
#62. There's also something about ageing and the concomitant awareness of the fleeting nature of existence that tends to make you less worried about being ridiculous, and less judgemental about the quality of ridiculousness in others. #Quote by Tom Cox
Ridiculous quotes by Horace Walpole
#63. Oh, we are ridiculous animals; and if the angels have any fun in them, how we must divert them! #Quote by Horace Walpole
Ridiculous quotes by Garry Kasparov
#64. The phrase "it's better to be lucky than good" must be one of the most ridiculous homilies ever uttered. In nearly any competitive endeavor, you have to be damned good before luck can be of any use to you at all. #Quote by Garry Kasparov
Ridiculous quotes by Jonathan Douglas Duran
#65. Silent, scarlet picking though this grand new year, an optimistic premise promised with sickening cheer. So please, pull up a chair and take a stand for all grand intentions. List your resolutions then kindly re-arrange them. Departmentalize your wicked, wonton ways - tell me all about yourself, but spend the most time on the things you hate. Pull out all your in-efficacious and ridiculous disguises; put on a simple act but perform it with abandon. Put your heart and your soul into the fire. Burn your thoughts before you think them, burn them up and take their stink in. #Quote by Jonathan Douglas Duran
Ridiculous quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#66. Boys, men," she said. "They're all the same. They think that this [their manhood] is something special and they're all so proud of it. They do not know how ridiculous it is. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Ridiculous quotes by Garry Maddox
#67. As I remember it, the bases were loaded. #Quote by Garry Maddox
Ridiculous quotes by Samuel Johnson
#68. Remember that nothing will supply the want of prudence, and that negligence and irregularity long continued will make knowledge useless, wit ridiculous, and genius contemptible. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Ridiculous quotes by Leo Lyon Zagami
#69. It is amazing to note, however, that an increasing number if esoteric [New Age] organizations that don't function as a screen for criminal activities related to the New World Order are often reduced to idle intellectual speculations or ridiculous ceremony. Such practices should be intended to perfect the individual and, if possible, take him to the realizations of a higher level, i.e. the awakening of his own conscience, not such rubbish as is witnessed. #Quote by Leo Lyon Zagami
Ridiculous quotes by Natalie J. Damschroder
#70. He propped his hands on his hips, shook his head slightly and turned his gaze from the front of the building to meet her eyes, dead on. "It sounds ridiculous, but I want you to have dinner with me. Since we have an early night."
Those truths clamored louder. She shook her head.
"Why not?"
"I don't have time, Rogan." [ ... ]
"You don't have time to eat?" he asked.
Kennedy blew out a breath. "I don't have time for dating games."
"Good, neither do I."
"Then what's this?"
He let go of her and lifted his shoulders, hands out. "Flirtation?"
Something intangible popped, and the tension faded. She smiled. "I expected you to say foreplay. #Quote by Natalie J. Damschroder
Ridiculous quotes by Ellen Pompeo
#71. I think for any actor to say they don't like attention is ridiculous. Of course we love attention. But getting attention is different than pretending the attention means something. #Quote by Ellen Pompeo
Ridiculous quotes by Matt Groening
#72. Where do babies come from? Don't bother asking adults. They lie like pigs. However, diligent independent research and hours of playground consultation have yielded fruitful, if tentative, results. There are several theories. Near as we can figure out, it has something to do with acting ridiculous in the dark. We believe it is similar to dogs when they act peculiar and ride each other. This is called "making love". Careful study of popular song lyrics, advertising catch-lines, TV sitcoms, movies, and T-Shirt inscriptions offers us significant clues as to its nature. Apparently it makes grown-ups insipid and insane. Some graffiti was once observed that said "sex is good". All available evidence, however, points to the contrary. #Quote by Matt Groening
Ridiculous quotes by Brooklyn Ann
#73. Rafe couldn't help wishing that passion was for him as a man, rather than an experiment. If only he weren't so ugly. His gaze dropped to his bad arm, studying the diminished scars where Cassandra had cut him. Could she do something about his face? Would she then find him appealing? His mouth twisted into a scowl of self-loathing at the ridiculous thought. He should be grateful that she had the power to heal his arm. He didn't need affection. He needed power to protect his people and defeat his enemies. He needed his arm back. Yet when he looked at her flushed cheeks and lush lips, Rafe couldn't help but want more. Her beauty must be driving him mad. That was the only logical explanation. The #Quote by Brooklyn Ann
Ridiculous quotes by Albert Camus
#74. A ridiculous fear pursued me, in fact: one could not die without having confessed all one's lies. Not to God or to one of his representatives; I was above that, as you well imagine. No, it was a matter of confessing to men, to a friend, to a beloved woman, for example. Otherwise, were there but one lie hidden in life, death made it definitive. No one, ever again, would know the truth at this point, since the only one to know it was precisely the dead man sleeping on his secret. The absolute murder of truth used to make me dizzy. #Quote by Albert Camus
Ridiculous quotes by Sebastian Barry
#75. But as I spoke to him, all I could feel was love. That was ridiculous. And I am deeply, deeply suspicious of it. #Quote by Sebastian Barry
Ridiculous quotes by Heather Moehn
#76. Using the Worst-Case Scenario Technique

Another way to correct inaccurate expectations is to imagine what would happen if the worst possible scenario occurred. Pretend that everything has gone wrong at once. Picture all the details and then exaggerate them. As you visualize the worst situation possible, you may start to laugh. The scene will seem so ridiculous that you realize there is not the slightest chance that it will take place.

Lupe used the worst-case scenario technique after deciding that she really wanted to join the yearbook committee. The students in the group met after school once a week, and Lupe felt anxious about attending her first meeting. She was certain she would clamp up when people spoke to her. The morning before the meeting, she relaxed and imagined the worst things that could happen. She pictured herself saying something and everyone ignoring her. She pictured her face getting so red that it looked like she was going to explode. Then she imagined people laughing at her, saying she didn't belong.
This exercise helped Lupe realize that her fears were unfounded. That afternoon, after a little pep talk and a few deep breaths, Lupe walked into the meeting. She was relieved that people were genuinely happy to have her there. She felt proud that she was able to be involved in a situation that she would have previously avoided. #Quote by Heather Moehn
Ridiculous quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#77. And this feeling had been more painfully perceived by young d'Artagnan - for so was the Don Quixote of this second Rosinante named - from his not being able to conceal from himself the ridiculous appearance that such a steed gave him, good horseman as he was. He had sighed deeply, therefore, when accepting the gift of the pony from M. d'Artagnan the elder. He was not ignorant that such a beast was worth at least twenty livres; and the words which had accompanied the present were above all price. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Ridiculous quotes by Cornelia Funke
#78. How ridiculous that water ran out of your eyes when your heart hurt. Tragic heroines in books tended to be amazingly beautiful. Not a word about swollen eyes or a red nose. "Crying always gives me a red nose," thought Elinor. "I expect that's why I'll never be in any book. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Ridiculous quotes by Alan Moore
#79. He never looks at comics these days, even though they've become fashionable to the point where adults are allowed to read them without fear of ridicule. Ironically, in David's view, this makes them a lot more ridiculous than when they were intended as a perfectly legitimate and often beautifully crafted means of entertaining kids. At age thirteen, David's idea of heaven was somewhere that comics were acclaimed and readily available, perhaps with dozens of big budget movies featuring his favourite obscure costumed characters. Now that he's in his fifties and his paradise is all around him he finds it depressing. Concepts and ideas meant for the children of some forty years ago: is that the best that the twenty-first century has got to offer? When all this extraordinary stuff is happening everywhere, are Stan Lee's post-war fantasies of white neurotic middle-class American empowerment really the most adequate response? #Quote by Alan Moore
Ridiculous quotes by Michael Shermer
#80. Checking a box on a form for race - "Caucasian," "Hispanic," "African-American," "Native American," or "Asian-American" - is untenable and ridiculous. For one thing, "American" is not a race, so labels such as "Asian-American" and "African-American" are still exhibits of our confusion of culture and race. For another thing, how far back does one go in history? Native Americans are really Asians, if you go back more than twenty or thirty thousand years to before they crossed the Bering land bridge between Asia and America. And Asians, several hundred thousand years ago probably came out of Africa, so we should really replace "Native American" with "African-Asian-Native American." Finally, if the Out of Africa (single racial origin) theory holds true, then all modern humans are from Africa. (Cavalli-Sforza now thinks this may have been as recently as seventy thousand years ago.) Even if that theory gives way to the Candelabra (multiple racial origins) theory, ultimately all hominids came from Africa, and therefore everyone in America should simply check the box next to "African-American. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Ridiculous quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#81. He was incredibly and unbearably beautiful.
There was no other way for her to adequately describe it to herself. It was beyond being just handsome. Handsome was a common masculine adjective, limited in its scope. This man was honestly beautiful. His facial features were so very elegant, taking the term noble to the extreme. Dark brows winged up over dark eyes, both of indeterminate color in the shadows of the night. So dramatic, but then so belied by the ridiculous childlike length of lush lashes. His magnificent eyes were lit with a soft, smoldering light of amusement as his sensual mouth was lifting up at the corner in a smile she could only call sinful.
"How did you . . . but that's . . . you couldn't possibly!" she spluttered, her hands opening and closing reflexively on his lapels.
"I did. It is not. And apparently, I could." He was smiling broadly now, and Isabella was certain she was the cause of some unseen bit of amusement. She glowered at him, completely forgetting he'd just saved her neck. Literally.
"I'm so glad you find this so entertaining!"
Jacob couldn't help his growing smile. She was so focused on him that she hadn't realized they were still a good ten feet off the ground and floating at the exact spot where he'd met her precipitous fall. That was for the best, he thought, sinking down to the pavement while she was distracted by the taunt of his amusement. He was going to have enough trouble as it was explaining how he'd managed to c #Quote by Jacquelyn Frank
Ridiculous quotes by Stefan Fatsis
#82. Plimpton was a presence. He looked for ways in which he could make himself ridiculous. That made him a great storyteller. #Quote by Stefan Fatsis
Ridiculous quotes by Neal Shusterman
#83. Even now, she looked radiant to him. How ridiculous that he'd be romanticizing her in these final hours. What could have once been love was now the resignation of a heart long broken. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Ridiculous quotes by Voltaire
#84. I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: Oh Lord, make my enemies ridiculous. And God granted it."

(Letter to Étienne Noël Damilaville, May 16, 1767) #Quote by Voltaire
Ridiculous quotes by Anna Wintour
#85. One doesn't want fashion to look ridiculous, silly, or out of step with the times - but you do want designers that make you think, that make you look at fashion differently. That's how fashion changes. If it doesn't change, it's not looking forward. And that's important to me. #Quote by Anna Wintour
Ridiculous quotes by Henry Rollins
#86. Rock is ironic in that, up to a certain point, you can get better and better at it if you don't mind possibly looking more and more ridiculous. #Quote by Henry Rollins
Ridiculous quotes by Stephanie Perkins
#87. There sure are a lot of stairs. Holy crap,will these things ever end?
Seriously?
MORE STAIRS?
This is ridiculous.I'm never buying a house with stairs.I won't even steps to my front door,just a gradual incline. #Quote by Stephanie Perkins
Ridiculous quotes by T.J. Klune
#88. If you had told Gus even a week ago that a bow tie worn by a bearded guy who could pull off a man bun, for fuck's sake, would be the beginning of his downfall, most likely he would have glowered at you until you returned to the pit from which you had crawled with the sole purpose of saying something ridiculous. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Ridiculous quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#89. You are like everyone else," Alyosha concluded, "that is, like a great many others, only you ought not to be like everyone else, that's what." "Even if everyone is like that?" "Yes, even if everyone is like that. You be the only one who is not like that. And in fact you're not like everyone else: you weren't ashamed just now to confess bad and even ridiculous things about yourself. Who would confess such things nowadays? No one, and people have even stopped feeling any need for self-judgment. So do not be like everyone else; even if you are the only one left who is not like that, still do not be like that. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Ridiculous quotes by Wendy Higgins
#90. But I thought we might get naked, just like Adam and Eve, so natural..."
I gasped. I'd forgotten all about that part of my conversation with Scott! Utter humiliation. I curled into a tighter ball.
"Oh, come on. You haven't even thanked me yet."
"For what?" I asked, still not looking.
"For saving you from snogging that plonker. You didn't really fancy him, did you?"
My cheeks burned, and I was glad to be turned away from him. I kept my mouth shut.
"So that's it, then?" he asked. I ignored him. "I always wondered what it would feel like."
That made me curious enough to turn to him.
"What what would feel like?" I asked.
"Rejection." He seemed in the midst of a revelation.
"What are you saying? That no girl has ever told you no?"
"Not one."
Well, that explained a lot.
"And what about you?" I asked. "Haven't you ever stopped or said no to a girl?"
He laughed as if I'd said something ridiculous. "Why would I do that?"
"Lots of reasons," I said. "Never mind, just go to sleep. We have a long day tomorrow." I turned away from him again, punching the thick pillow and laying my head down.
"I suppose I did refuse one, but she doesn't count," he said.
"Why not?"
"Because she was Neph."
Discomfort gnawed at me.
"This must be the part where I take a cold shower?" he asked.
"Good idea."
When he was in the bathroom with the water running, I jumped down and changed into my pajamas. The #Quote by Wendy Higgins
Ridiculous quotes by Ice-T
#91. There's people out there with nuclear bombs and yet we've got all these politicians trying to make a political platform based on a record. Isn't it ridiculous? #Quote by Ice-T
Ridiculous quotes by Conan O'Brien
#92. A congressman from Texas sent out a tweet comparing President Obama to Hitler. That is ridiculous because at this point in his career Hitler had a much higher approval rating. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Ridiculous quotes by Jonathan Tropper
#93. That's the problem with college kids. I blame Hollywood for skewing their perspective. Life is just a big romantic comedy to them, and if you meet cute, happily-ever-after is a foregone conclusion. So there we were, the pretty blond girl milking her very slight congenital limp in order to seem damaged and more interesting, and the nervous boy with the ridiculous hair trying so hard to be clever, the two of us hypnotized by the syncopated rhythms of our furiously beating hearts and throbbing loins. That stupid, desperate, horny kid I was, standing obliviously on the fault line of embryonic love, when really, what he should have been doing was running for his life. #Quote by Jonathan Tropper
Ridiculous quotes by Joe Rogan
#94. Reality really is theater. There's no other way to describe it. It's all so nonsensical, ridiculous and chaotic. #Quote by Joe Rogan
Ridiculous quotes by Jonathan Horton
#95. When I moved down to Houston, I had people who were willing to support me with sponsorships and different endorsement deals. That's really how I stayed afloat. It isn't ridiculous money where you can live however you want - I still have to be disciplined - but I've been very blessed with having people to support me. #Quote by Jonathan Horton
Ridiculous quotes by Garth Stein
#96. No, you don't remember, and sometimes it's best that way. Sometimes it's best to start fresh. Every day, fresh. Living always in the present, unburdened by the pain of the past. Most of us drag around our misdeeds like giant dead birds tied to our necks; we condemn ourselves to telling every stranger we meet the story of our anguish and inadequacies, hoping that one day we will be forgiven, hoping that we will find a person who will look at us and pretend to ignore the ridiculous dead birds hanging from our sunburned and weather-beaten necks. And if we find that person, and if we don't hate him for not hating us, if we don't hold him in contempt for not treating us contemptuously, as we expect to be treated - nay, as we demand to be treated - well, that person will be something of a soul mate, I imagine. #Quote by Garth Stein
Ridiculous quotes by Fabina
#97. You look-" -cut off by Nina saying "Ridiculous, I know."- "I was going to say beautiful. #Quote by Fabina
Ridiculous quotes by Lynn Margulis
#98. People think the earth is going to die and they have to save it. That's ridiculous. If you rid the earth of flowering plants, people would die, period. But the earth was without flowering plants for almost all of its history. #Quote by Lynn Margulis
Ridiculous quotes by Michelle Pfeiffer
#99. Where I came from, the idea of going into show business was just ridiculous; in fact I didn't tell anybody because I knew people would laugh at me. So I sort of snuck around and got some pictures and got a resume together and, of course, lied and said I did all kinds of things I didn't do. #Quote by Michelle Pfeiffer
Ridiculous quotes by Leisa Rayven
#100. See, that's the problem. Love is an asshole. It doesn't care about people's plans. It's never convenient. It crawls inside of you at the most ridiculous times and makes you feel, whether you like it or not. And even long after the time when you should have learned to stop loving someone, it just keeps holding on to them. Doesn't it? #Quote by Leisa Rayven
Ridiculous quotes by Aldous Huxley
#101. It was one of those evenings when men feel that truth, goodness and beauty are one. In the morning, when they commit their discovery to paper, when others read it written there, it looks wholly ridiculous. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Ridiculous quotes by Teresa Lo
#102. Unpaid internships are worse than slavery," Gabby said. I looked at her, unsure of what she meant. "They make us work ridiculous hours, for free, and they make us do things an employee would do. It's a scam, and worse, they make you feel like they're doing YOU a favor. It's such mindfuckery. #Quote by Teresa Lo
Ridiculous quotes by Hinowa Kouzuki
#103. No matter how ridiculous it is, its good to express your emotions while you are young. If not, you end up reaching your limit. We accumulate small and trivial experiences in life. But for those who can't treat their experiences as food to growth, they will reach the point of refusing to associate with other people with one line "I'm not to blame. #Quote by Hinowa Kouzuki
Ridiculous quotes by Atul Gawande
#104. And there is such a strategy - though it will seem almost ridiculous in its simplicity, maybe even crazy to those of us who have spent years carefully developing ever more advanced skills and technologies. It is a checklist. #Quote by Atul Gawande
Ridiculous quotes by Robert L. O'Connell
#105. That's the way it is with Appian; things that appear ridiculous on average just might have happened, so they cannot be entirely dismissed. #Quote by Robert L. O'Connell
Ridiculous quotes by Rob Thomas
#106. For one ridiculous moment she considered changing into something sexier - at least from the waist up, as that was all he'd see on his camera - but decided not to bother. Logan had fallen in love with her in striped T-shirts and jeans. There was no need to mess with a winning formula. #Quote by Rob Thomas
Ridiculous quotes by R.J. Palacio
#107. Yeah, they did. Didn't you notice they changed the theme of the New Year Art Show? In past years fifth graders painted self-portraits, but this year they made us do those ridiculous self-portraits as animals, remember?" "So big freakin' deal." "I know! I'm not saying I agree, I'm just saying that's what she's saying." "I know, I know. This is just so messed up. #Quote by R.J. Palacio
Ridiculous quotes by Madonna Ciccone
#108. I feel like everybody needs to take a sabbatical and go to Russia and Africa and work in orphanages and really witness true suffering. And then you'll just feel ridiculous for ever complaining about anything. Everybody needs that kind of reality check. #Quote by Madonna Ciccone
Ridiculous quotes by Kass Morgan
#109. I'll say that you were so beautiful, you made me do ridiculous, reckless things. #Quote by Kass Morgan
Ridiculous quotes by R.M.  Miller
#110. Part of the problem was that I just could not conceal the impact she had on me. Whenever she was about I was nothing but a useless, speechless vibration of air. It was terrifying. I always felt so ridiculous. #Quote by R.M. Miller
Ridiculous quotes by Kimberly Derting
#111. You know she made me a list, don't you?"
"What do you mean?"
"A list. Chelsea made me a list of questions to ask Mike."
Violet laughed, pulling herself up. It was too ridiculous to believe. But it was Chelsea, so of course it was true.
"What did you do with it? You didn't give it to him, did you?" Violet asked, her eyes wide with shock.
Jay sat up too and grinned, and Violet was sure that he had. And then he shook his head. "Nah. I told her if she really wanted the answers, she'd have to give it to him herself."
Violet relaxed back into the couch. "Did she?"
Jay shrugged. "I dunno. You never know with Chelsea." He leaned forward, watching Violet closely as he ran his thumb down the side of her cheek. "Anyway," he said, switching the subject, "I get off work at six tomorrow; maybe we can hook up after that." He moved closer, grinning. "And you can tell me how much you missed me."
He kissed her, at first quickly. Then the kiss deepened, and she heard him groan. This time, when he pulled back, there was indecision in his eyes.
Violet wanted to say something sarcastic and sharp-witted to lighten the mood, but with Jay staring at her like that, any hope of finding a clever response was lost. She could feel herself disappearing into the depths of that uncertain look. #Quote by Kimberly Derting

Ridiculous quotes by Marc H. Ellis
#115. the prophet's calling, though laudable, is laughable. More, the prophet's intensity makes him look ridiculous. Is there any person more pathetic than the prophet proclaiming what everybody knows will never happen? #Quote by Marc H. Ellis
Ridiculous quotes by Chris Vance
#116. Dallas is an extraordinary place in it's own right. The first thing about Dallas that you can't get away from, particularly when I arrived, you've got no idea of the heat in this place. It's over 100 degrees, and with that the humidity is ridiculous. I mean, people don't live here, armadillos live here. #Quote by Chris Vance
Ridiculous quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Ridiculous quotes by Susan Sarandon
#119. It's ridiculous that we continue to incarcerate anyone for using a substance that actually causes far less damage than alcohol. No one goes out looking for fights on marijuana. No one dies from marijuana intoxication. And no one should be jailed for possessing marijuana. #Quote by Susan Sarandon
Ridiculous quotes by L. David Mech
#120. It is beyond ridiculous that wolves need to study a human or that they are capable of it. #Quote by L. David Mech
Ridiculous quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#121. The person of analytic or critical intellect finds something ridiculous in everything. The person of synthetic or constructive intellect, in almost nothing. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Ridiculous quotes by Jean-Dominique Bauby
#124. Vincent had ten major ideas every week: three brilliant, five good, and two ridiculous. #Quote by Jean-Dominique Bauby
Ridiculous quotes by Charles Dickens
#125. To surround anything, however monstrous or ridiculous, with an air of mystery, is to invest it with a secret charm, and power of attraction which to the crowd is irresistible. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Ridiculous quotes by Matthew Gregory Lewis
#126. He had long observed with disapprobation and contempt the superstition which governed Madrid's inhabitants. His good sense had pointed out to him the artifices of the monks, and the gross absurdity of their miracles, wonders, and suppositious relics. He blushed to see his countrymen, the dupes of deceptions, so ridiculous, and only wished for an opportunity to free them from their monkish fetters. That opportunity, so long desired in vain, was at length presented to him. He resolved not to let it slip, but to set before the people, in glaring colours, how enormous were the abuses but too frequently practised in monasteries, and how unjustly public esteem was bestowed indiscriminately upon all who wore a religious habit. He longed for the moment destined to unmask the hypocrites, and convince his countrymen, that a sanctified exterior does not always hide a virtuous heart. #Quote by Matthew Gregory Lewis
Ridiculous quotes by Nadia Scrieva
#127. Love does not have gender. Love is not exclusive! Our hearts have the capacity to love so many people. The only tragedy is when fear, cultural barriers, ridiculous misunderstandings, or arbitrary numbers prevent us from experiencing the joy we could have. #Quote by Nadia Scrieva
Ridiculous quotes by Frederick Lenz
#128. As a former English professor, I can assure you that grammar is the qualitative interpolation of language. Adjectives, pronouns, predicates, past pluperfect indicative - ridiculous. It has qualities, shadings, differentiations, rhythmic structures of symbolic meaning. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Ridiculous quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#129. At the evident risk of seeming ridiculous, I want to begin by saying that I have tried for much of my life to write as if I was composing my sentences to be read posthumously. I hope this isn't too melodramatic or self-centred a way of saying that I attempt to write as if I did not care what reviewers said, what peers thought, or what prevailing opinions may be. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Ridiculous quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#130. I believe one day a 'ban on gay marriage' will sound totally ridiculous. In the meantime, I will continue to speak out for equality for all of us. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres

Ridiculous quotes by Victoria Schwab
#134. Shouldn't she stay on the boat?" The cat's ear twitched, and Lila felt that whatever pleasant inclinations the cat was forming toward her, she'd just lost them.
"Don't be ridiculous," said Alucard. "The ship's no place for a cat." Lila was about to point out that the cat had been aboard the ship as long as she had when he added, "I believe in keeping my valuables with me."
Lila perked up. Were cats so precious here? Or rare? She hadn't ever seen another one, but in the little time she was ashore, she hadn't exactly been looking. "Oh yeah?"
"I don't like that look," Alucard said, twisting chest and cat away.
"What look?" asked Lila innocently.
"The look that says Esa might conveniently go missing if I tell you what she's worth. #Quote by Victoria Schwab
Ridiculous quotes by Stephen Dunn
#135. That time I thought I was in love
and calmly said so
was not much different from the time
I was truly in love
and slept poorly and spoke out loud
to the wall
and discovered the hidden genius
of my hands
And the times I felt less in love,
less than someone,
were, to be honest, not so different
either.
Each was ridiculous in its own way
and each was tender, yes,
sometimes even the false is tender.
I am astonished
by the various kisses we're capable of.
Each from different heights
diminished, which is simply the law.
And the big bruise
from the long fall looked perfectly white
in a few years.
That astounded me most of all. #Quote by Stephen Dunn
Ridiculous quotes by Sophie Scholl
#136. I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being superficial. It's a matter of joy in life. #Quote by Sophie Scholl
Ridiculous quotes by Avril Lavigne

Ridiculous quotes by Sara Mackenzie
#138. He didn't understand these people. They rushed about blindly, with never a moment to spare. Their cell phones rang, they had to check their e-mail, they had to network. Ridiculous words Amy had taught him. She said that they were frightened, that if they stopped rushing, they might have to think. And if they had to think, then they might realize how empty and pointless their lives were. #Quote by Sara Mackenzie

Ridiculous quotes by Gillian Flynn
#140. My parents have always worried that I'd take Amy too personally - they always tell not to read too much into her, And yet I can't fail to notice that whenever I screw something up, Amy does it right: When I finally quit violin at age twelve, Amy was revealed as a prodigy in the next book. ("Sheesh, violin can be hard work, but handwork is the only way to get better!") When I blew off the junior championship at age sixteen to do a beach weekend with friends, Amy recommitted to the game. ("Sheesh, I know it's fun to spend time with friends, but I'd be letting myself and everyone else down if I didn't show up for the tournament.") This used to drive me mad, but after I wend off to Harvard (and Amy correct those my parents' alma mater), I decided it was all too ridiculous to think about. That my parents, two child psychologists, chose this particular public form of passive-aggressiveness toward their child was not just fucked up but also stupid and weird and kind of hilarious. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Ridiculous quotes by Billy Collins

Ridiculous quotes by Dave Ramsey
#143. That stupid saying "What you don't know can't hurt you" is ridiculous. What you don't know can kill you. If you don't know that tractor trailer trucks hurt when hitting you, then you can play in the middle of the interstate with no fear - but that doesn't mean you won't get killed. #Quote by Dave Ramsey
Ridiculous quotes by Thomas Sowell

Ridiculous quotes by Konnie Huq
#146. I had a Saturday job in a chemist. The pay was something ridiculous like £2 an hour - it was slave labour - and I spent all day cleaning shelves. On my first day an actress from Eldorado, which was on telly at the time, came in and said, 'Can I have some Replense please?' I didn't know what it was, so I had to ask her and she had to say, 'It's vaginal moisturiser,' in front of a massive queue of people. After one day I was like, 'I don't want to do this job any more, it's just boring.' #Quote by Konnie Huq
Ridiculous quotes by Jamie West Zumwalt
#147. The call to love our enemies is, without a doubt, the most difficult thing Jesus invited us to do. . . For gang members, the decision to not retaliate can be a life and death decision. It is a ridiculous call, and yet, as the cycle of violence is broken and Love spreads, the ripples of Love change the world. #Quote by Jamie West Zumwalt
Ridiculous quotes by Trisha Yearwood
#148. Divorce is so common and accepted in America that beating myself up over it may sound ridiculous. But I was raised to believe that divorce wasn't an option; to me, divorce equaled failure. I wasn't able to change that equation until I found myself in the right relationship. #Quote by Trisha Yearwood
Ridiculous quotes by Charlie N. Holmberg

Ridiculous quotes by Ginger Talbot
#152. The thought of Joshua being arrested makes me feel queasy. That's ridiculous. It's so stupid. I will tell the police everything. I have to.
Would he really have set me free?
I want to believe it. After all this time, after everything I've been through, I still want to believe in the basic decency of humanity, and more, I want to believe in him #Quote by Ginger Talbot
Ridiculous quotes by Logan Lerman
#153. I would add a little more love in the world. It's ridiculous, I know, but it is one thing I would do. #Quote by Logan Lerman
Ridiculous quotes by Mara Wilson
#154. The celebrity aspect is nothing short of ridiculous, and auditioning is brutal and dehumanizing. Every time I see a pretty young girl on the subway reading sides for an audition, my only thought is, 'Man, am I glad I'm not doing that anymore.' I never feel nostalgia, just relief. #Quote by Mara Wilson
Ridiculous quotes by Matt Passmore
#155. I grew up in suburban Brisbane, so to say you wanted to be an actor was a ridiculous concept. #Quote by Matt Passmore
Ridiculous quotes by Bill Bryson

Ridiculous quotes by Stasia Ward Kehoe
#157. Dare I tell them that since I came here to dance
I have been giving pieces of my body away
To ridiculous diets,
To repeated injuries,
To Remington?
And that maybe
I think
With each bit of my body
I lose a little piece of my soul #Quote by Stasia Ward Kehoe
Ridiculous quotes by Ashley Herring Blake
#158. Sam and me- star-crossed and still entangled up on a hill overlooking the city. On top of the world. I almost laugh at how ridiculous it is. How silly it is that we found each other, that we grounded each other, that we gave each other a sense of freedom and a home. #Quote by Ashley Herring Blake
Ridiculous quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#159. The assassin pivoted around the table and took aim again. She missed. Gritting her teeth, she considered snapping the cue in half across her knee. But she'd been attempting to play for only an hour. She'd be incredible by midnight! She'd master this ridiculous game or she'd turn the table into firewood. And use it to burn Cain alive. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Ridiculous quotes by Rafael Sabatini
#160. It does not make me ridiculous simply to be less foul than those about me. #Quote by Rafael Sabatini
Ridiculous quotes by Alain De Botton
#161. Without sex, we would be dangerously invulnerable. We might believe we were not ridiculous. We wouldn't know rejection and humiliation so intimately. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Ridiculous quotes by Ray Bradbury
#162. Somehow, irresistibly, the prime thing was: nothing mattered. Life in the end seemed a prank of such size you could only stand off at this end of the corridor to note its meaningless length and it's quite unnecessary height, a mountain built to such ridiculous immensities you were dwarfed in its shadow and mocking of its pomp. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Ridiculous quotes by Thomas Bernhard
#163. Words ruin one's thoughts, paper makes them ridiculous, and even while one is still glad to get something ruined and something ridiculous down on paper, one's memory manages to lose hold of even this ruined and ridiculous something. Paper can turn an enormity into a triviality, an absurdity. If you look at it this way, then whatever appears in the world, by way of the spiritual world so to speak, is always a ruined thing, a ridiculous thing, which means that everything in this world is ridiculous and ruined. Words were made to demean thought, I would even go so far as to state that words exist in order to abolish thought, and one day they will succeed one hundred percent in so doing. In any case, words (are) bringing everything down. Depression derives from words, nothing else. #Quote by Thomas Bernhard
Ridiculous quotes by Mac DeMarco
#164. My music is kind of laid back, it doesn't have super crispy, shiny production, and I'm not singing my heart out or whatever. But that whole idea of blogs declaring: "this is the new denomination for this sound" is ridiculous to me. #Quote by Mac DeMarco
Ridiculous quotes by Holt McCallany
#165. Not all television scripts are created equal. And the process is ridiculous. They send you a script and want you in the next morning. That's not how acting works. You can do anything to me as an actor; I'm a very resilient guy. Just don't rush me. If you ask me to do it immediately with no time to prepare, I know you have contempt for actors. #Quote by Holt McCallany
Ridiculous quotes by Julia Quinn
#166. And are you thirsty," she asked, "or were you merely being polite?"
"I am always polite," he said with a wicked grin, "but I am thirsty as well."
Kate took one look at that grin, lethally combined with those devastating green eyes, and nearly groaned. "You are a rake as well," she said with a sigh.
Colin choked - on what, she did not know, but he choked nonetheless. "I beg your pardon?"
Kate's face flushed as she realized with horror that she'd spoken aloud. "No, it is I who should beg your pardon. Please forgive me. That was unforgivably rude."
"No, no," he said quickly, looking terribly interested and not a little bit amused, "do continue."
Kate swallowed. There was really no way to get out of it now. "I was merely - " She cleared her throat. "If I might be frank . . ."
He nodded, his sly grin telling her that he could not imagine her being anything but frank.
Kate cleared her throat yet again. Really, this was getting ridiculous. She was starting to sound as if she'd swallowed a toad. "It had occurred to me that you might be rather like your brother, that is all."
"My brother?"
"The viscount," she said, thinking it must be obvious.
"I have three brothers," he explained.
"Oh." Now she felt stupid. "I'm sorry."
"I'm sorry, too," he said with great feeling. "Most of the time they're a dreadful nuisance."

Ridiculous quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#167. The qualities we have, make us so ridiculous as those which we affect. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Ridiculous quotes by Anne M. Chappel
#168. Her task seemed ridiculous, the result of a momentary weakness, of believing in the impossible, that stories have a trajectory where we find things out, resolve things to our satisfaction and come out the other side, wiser and happier #Quote by Anne M. Chappel
Ridiculous quotes by Agnes Repplier
#169. A kitten is the most irresistible comedian in the world. Its wide-open eyes gleam with wonder and mirth. It darts madly at nothing at all, and then, as though suddenly checked in the pursuit, prances sideways on its hind legs with ridiculous agility and zeal. #Quote by Agnes Repplier
Ridiculous quotes by Lyra Parish
#170. Love is kisses and touches and all the little things that make your body flood with emotions such as need, want, protectiveness, jealousy, hurt, and anger. It can take your breath away, or smother you at times, and make you feel like you can't go on. Your heart may race a thousand miles per minute, then slow down, and then race again, just with a simple look. Love is deadly and can kill you from the inside out if you let it. It makes you do stupid, ridiculous things, and say senseless sappy words, or listen to silly love songs, jazz, or dance in the streets, or laugh, or smile. Love is a weapon, or a drug, and can drive a person mad. I know what love is ... #Quote by Lyra Parish
Ridiculous quotes by Nick Harkaway
#171. I grew up on the Roger Moore and Sean Connery Bond movies, so the DNA of my spies is extremely ridiculous and goofy. #Quote by Nick Harkaway
Ridiculous quotes by Larry The Cable Guy
#172. What a piece of garbage this smart car is. There's a commercial - the smart car has zero percent interest for six years. Well, good, I got zero percent in six years in buying this smart car. I'll tell you that much. I mean, it's ridiculous. My buddy has a smart car, totaled it. He hit a deer tick. #Quote by Larry The Cable Guy
Ridiculous quotes by Marissa Meyer
#173. … to rule at my side with grace and justice, to honor the laws of the Earthen Union as laid out by our forefathers, to be an advocate for peace and fairness among all peoples."

Did anyone believe a word of this rubbish?

"From this day forward, she will be my sun at dawn and my moon at night, and I vow to love and cherish her for all our days."

Who wrote these vows anyway? He'd never heard anything so ridiculous in his life. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Ridiculous quotes by Gena Showalter
#174. With a clipped slash of his arm, Lucien knocked her hat. The ultrafashionable Anya sported uneven bangs and layers that hung sloppily around her face. "You may or may not look ridiculous. And adorable," he added with a grumble. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Ridiculous quotes by Seneca The Younger
#175. An old man at school is a contemptible and ridiculous object. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Ridiculous quotes by Tina Yothers
#176. It's never been bad or ridiculous. I know who I am and what I've done, and I'm really comfortable with myself. #Quote by Tina Yothers
Ridiculous quotes by Donald Judd

Ridiculous quotes by Brandon Sanderson

Ridiculous quotes by Chris Pine
#179. 'Horrible Bosses' is just blatant, outright fun. I've read some of what the critics have said, and it's incredible how mean critics can be about comedies ... It's so ridiculous. #Quote by Chris Pine
Ridiculous quotes by William Hazlitt
#180. Kings ought never to be seen upon the stage. In the abstract, they are very disagreeable characters: it is only while living that they are 'the best of kings'. It is their power, their splendour, it is the apprehension of the personal consequences of their favour or their hatred that dazzles the imagination and suspends the judgement of their favourites or their vassals; but death cancels the bond of allegiance and of interest; and seen AS THEY WERE, their power and their pretensions look monstrous and ridiculous. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Ridiculous quotes by Jonathan Chait
#181. President Obama is so much smarter and a better communicator than members of Congress in either party. The contrast, side by side, is almost ridiculous ... #Quote by Jonathan Chait
Ridiculous quotes by Anna Burns
#182. also found the situation unworkable. Not just unworkable – ridiculous. Not just ridiculous – perturbing. #Quote by Anna Burns
Ridiculous quotes by Paulo Coelho
#183. Love does not ask many questions, because with thinking comes fear. This might be the fear of being scorned, of being rejected, or of breaking the spell. However ridiculous this may seem, that is how it is. This is why one does not ask, one acts. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Ridiculous quotes by Bono
#184. Celebrity is ridiculous and silly and it's mad that people like me are listened to - you know, rap stars and movie stars. #Quote by Bono
Ridiculous quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#185. Be neither too early in the fashion, nor too long out of it; nor at any time in the extremes of it. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater
Ridiculous quotes by G.H. Hardy
#186. What is the proper justification of a mathematician's life? My answers will be, for the most part, such as are expected from a mathematician: I think that it is worthwhile, that there is ample justification. But I should say at once that my defense of mathematics will be a defense of myself, and that my apology is bound to be to some extent egotistical. I should not think it worth while to apologize for my subject if I regarded myself as one of its failures. Some egotism of this sort is inevitable, and I do not feel that it really needs justification. Good work is no done by "humble" men. It is one of the first duties of a professor, for example, in any subject, to exaggerate a little both the importance of his subject and his own importance in it. A man who is always asking "Is what I do worth while?" and "Am I the right person to do it?" will always be ineffective himself and a discouragement to others. He must shut his eyes a little and think a little more of his subject and himself than they deserve. This is not too difficult: it is harder not to make his subject and himself ridiculous by shutting his eyes too tightly. #Quote by G.H. Hardy
Ridiculous quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#187. There's something vile (and all the more vile because ridiculous) in the tendency of feeble men to make universal tragedies out of the sad comedies of their private woes. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Ridiculous quotes by Shaun White
#188. Trick names are so ridiculous! #Quote by Shaun White
Ridiculous quotes by Lori Gottlieb
#189. I thought I should call a matchmaker.

For me, this seemed like a radical step. It never occurred to me to hire a matchmaker when I was younger because I always believed I'd meet a man on my own. He'd be sitting next to me on an airplane, waiting in line behind me at the dry cleaner, working in the same office attending the same party, hanging out at the same coffeehouse.

It seemed ridiculous now, when I thought about the odds of this happening. After all, we don't subject other important aspects of out lives to pure chance. When you want to get a job you don't just hang out in the lobbies of office buildings, hoping an employer will strike up a conversation with you. When you want to buy a house, you don't walk aimlessly from neighborhood to neighborhood on your own, hoping to spot a house that happens to be for sale, matches your personal taste and contains the appropriate number of bedrooms and bathrooms. That's too random. If that's your only method of house hunting, you might end up homeless. So you hire a real estate broker to show you the potential homes that meet your needs. By the same token, why not hire a matchmaker to show you potential partners? #Quote by Lori Gottlieb
Ridiculous quotes by David Foster Wallace
#190. You want your art to be hip and seem cool to people, but a great deal of what passes for hip or cool is now highly commercially driven. And some if it is important art. I think 'The Simpsons' is important art. On the other hand, it's also, in my opinion, relentlessly corrosive to the soul and everything is parodied and everything is ridiculous. Maybe I'm old but for my part I can be steeped in about an hour of it and then I have to walk away and look at a flower.
If there's something to be talked about, that thing is this weird conflict between what my girlfriend calls the 'inner sap,' the part of us that can really wholeheartedly weep at stuff and the part of us that has to live in a world of smart, jaded, sophisticated people and wants very much to be taken seriously by those people. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Ridiculous quotes by William McDonough
#191. All these corporate reports say they want zero carbon. Well that is ridiculous, because you are not telling us what you are, you are telling us what you are not. #Quote by William McDonough
Ridiculous quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#192. One also, in our milieu, simply didn't meet enough Americans to form an opinion. And when one did - this was in the days of crew-cuts and short-legged pants - they, too, often really did sport crew-cuts and trousers that mysteriously ended several inches short of the instep. Why was that? It obviously wasn't poverty. A colleague of my father's had a daughter who got herself married and found that an American friend she had met on holiday had offered to pay the whole cost of the nuptial feast. I forget the name of this paladin, but he had a crew-cut and amputated trouser-bottoms and a cigar stub and he came from a place called Yonkers, which seemed to me a ridiculous name to give to a suburb. (I, who had survived Crapstone… ) Anyway, once again one received a Henry Jamesian impression of brash generosity without overmuch refinement. There was a boy at my boarding school called Warren Powers Laird Myers, the son of an officer stationed at one of the many U.S. Air Force bases in Cambridgeshire. Trousers at The Leys School were uniform and regulation, but he still managed to show a bit of shin and to buzz-cut his hair. 'I am not a Yankee,' he informed me (he was from Norfolk, Virginia). 'I am a CON-federate.' From what I was then gleaning of the news from Dixie, this was unpromising. In our ranks we also had Jamie Auchincloss, a sprig of the Kennedy-Bouvier family that was then occupying the White House. His trousers managed to avoid covering his ankles also, though the fact that #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Ridiculous quotes by Neal Ascherson
#193. For the past 15 years or so, British governments have tried to persuade the rest of us that the best judges of the national interest are ... businessmen. This may be a ridiculous statement, but
ominously
fewer and fewer people laugh at it. #Quote by Neal Ascherson
Ridiculous quotes by Mariana Zapata
#194. I've always figured that people in the upper echelon of beauty - sans Mason - were incapable of doing the ridiculous things that semi-attractive people like myself do; like fart or burp in front of others, smell or have stinky shit. #Quote by Mariana Zapata
Ridiculous quotes by Daniel Webster
#195. Who will show me any Constitutional injunction which makes it the duty of the American people to surrender everything valuable in life, and even life, itself, whenever the purposes of an ambitious and mischievous government may require it? ... A free government with an uncontrolled power of military conscription is the most ridiculous and abominable contradiction and nonsense that ever entered into the heads of men. #Quote by Daniel Webster
Ridiculous quotes by Peter Ralston
#196. If you're serious about obtaining an effortless power, you must learn to take the principle of relaxing to what your brain will consider a ridiculous degree. No matter how relaxed you are, you can always relax more. #Quote by Peter Ralston
Ridiculous quotes by Irene Cara
#197. All of a sudden, I was hearing stories about how difficult I was to work with, ridiculous rumors about drugs and what a diva I was. I never had to go to rehab or a program. #Quote by Irene Cara
Ridiculous quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#198. Most people never cease to exercise their right to disbelieve something that is obvious, or to believe something that is ridiculous. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Ridiculous quotes by Christina Engela
#199. We are told that religion says: 'God gave us brains' - and then they also quickly add: '-but God doesn't want us to use them'. Ridiculous. #Quote by Christina Engela
