Tragedy quotes by Bill Johnson
#1. The fear of making mistakes and not doing a particular ministry well has paralyzed many believers, and that is a tragedy. They fail to see that perfectionism is religion (form without power). Excellence is Kingdom. Saying yes to the King is the first step in discipleship. And being driven by love makes it impossible to remain stationary. #Quote by Bill Johnson
Tragedy quotes by Lynda Cohen Loigman

Tragedy quotes by Candice Millard
#12. Garfield's shooting had also revealed to the American people how vulnerable they were. In the little more than a century since its inception, the United States had become a powerful and respected country. Yet Americans suddenly realized that they still had no real control over their own fate. Not only could they not prevent a tragedy of such magnitude, they couldn't even anticipate it. The course of their lives could be changed in an instant, by a man who did not even understand what he had done. #Quote by Candice Millard
Tragedy quotes by Nicholas Jarecki
#13. I think that ultimately any effective drama or tragedy tries to put you as much as it can into the protagonist's shoes. #Quote by Nicholas Jarecki

Tragedy quotes by Douglas Rees

Tragedy quotes by Hazrat Inayat Khan
#27. The true use of music is to become musical in one's thoughts, words and actions. One should be able to give the harmony for which the soul yearns and longs every moment. All the tragedy in the world, in the individual and in the multitude, comes from lack of harmony, and harmony is best given by producing it in one's own life. #Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Tragedy quotes by Charles Bukowski
#28. so we went up the hill. then we got into my room and I looked at them both. my pure and beautiful slim and magic little girl glorious fuck with the hair dangling down to the asshole, and next to her the tragedy of the ages: slime and horror, the machine gone wrong, frogs tortured by little boys and head-on car collisions and the spider taking in the ball-less buzzing fly and the landscape brain of Primo Carnera going down under the dull playboy guns of cocksure Maxie Baer - new heavyweight champ of America - I, I rushed at the Tragedy of the Ages - that fat slob of accumulated shit. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Tragedy quotes by Elaine Scarry
#29. Whatever pain achieves, it achieves in part through its unsharability, and it ensures this unsharability through its resistance to language. "English," writes Virginia Woolf, "which can express the thoughts of Hamlet and the tragedy of Lear has no words for the shiver or the headache." ... Physical pain does not simply resist language but actively destroys it. #Quote by Elaine Scarry
Tragedy quotes by Robert Gottlieb
#30. I first read 'An American Tragedy' in college, and in my entire life I had never read anything so painful. #Quote by Robert Gottlieb

As princes' palaces; they that enter there
Must go upon their knees. #Quote by John Webster

#35. The tragedy of the poor is that they can afford nothing but self denial. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Tragedy quotes by Carl Jung
#36. The utter failure came at the Crucifixion in the tragic words, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' If you want to understand the full tragedy of those words you must realize what they meant: Christ saw that his whole life, devoted to the truth according to his best conviction, had been a terrible illusion. He had lived it to the full absolutely sincerely, he had made his honest experiment, but it was nevertheless a compensation. On the cross his mission deserted him. But because he had lived so fully and devotedly he won through to the Resurrection body. #Quote by Carl Jung
Tragedy quotes by Carroll Bryant
#37. The last word of love is ... goodbye. #Quote by Carroll Bryant
Tragedy quotes by Richard Llewellyn
#38. There is strange, and yet not strange, is the kiss. It is strange because it mixes silliness with tragedy, and yet not strange because there is good reason for it. There is shaking by the hand. That should be enough. Yet a shaking of hands is not enough to give a vent to all kinds of feeling. The hand is too hard and too used to doing all things, with too little feeling and too far from the organs of taste and smell, and far from the brain, and the length of an arm from the heart. To rub a nose like the blacks, that we think is so silly, is better, but there is nothing good to the taste about the nose, only a piece of old bone pushing out of the face, and a nuisance in winter, but a friend before meals and in a garden, indeed. With the eyes we can do nothing, for if we come too near, they go crossed and everything comes twice to the sight without good from one or other.

There is nothing to be done with the ear, so back we come to the mouth, and we kiss with the mouth because it is part of the head and of the organs of taste and smell. It is temple of the voice, keeper of breath and its giving out, treasurer of tastes and succulences, and home of the noble tongue. And its portals are firm, yet soft, with a warmth, of a ripeness, unlike the rest of the face, rosy, and in women with a crinkling of red tenderness, to the taste not in compare with the wild strawberry, yet if the taste of kisses went , and strawberries came the year round, half of joy would be gone from #Quote by Richard Llewellyn
Tragedy quotes by Gabriel Chevallier
#39. There is nothing in human affairs that is a true subject for ridicule. Beneath comedy lies the ferment of tragedy; the farcical is but a cloak for coming catastrophe. #Quote by Gabriel Chevallier
Tragedy quotes by Kanye West
#40. I'm a champion, so I turn tragedy to triumph. #Quote by Kanye West
Tragedy quotes by Sui Ishida
#41. If you were to write a story with me in the lead role, it would certainly be... a tragedy #Quote by Sui Ishida
Tragedy quotes by Stefan Zweig
#42. The Battle of Waterloo is a work of art with tension and drama with its unceasing change from hope to fear and back again, changewhich suddenly dissolves into a moment of extreme catastrophe, a model tragedy because the fate of Europe was determined within this individual fate. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Tragedy quotes by Clarice Lispector
#43. To restore you and myself, I return to my state of garden and shade, cool reality, I hardly exist and if I do exist it's with delicate care. Surrounding the shade is a teeming, sweaty heat. I'm alive. But I feel I've not yet reached my limits, bordering on what? Without limits, the adventure of a dangerous freedom. But I take the risk, I live taking it. I'm full of acacias swaying yellow, and I, who have barely begun my journey, begin it with a sense of tragedy, guessed what lost ocean my life steps will take me to. And crazily I latch onto the corners of myself, my hallucinations suffocate me with their beauty. I am before, I am almost, I am never. And all this I gained when I stopped loving you. #Quote by Clarice Lispector
Tragedy quotes by Theodore Dalrymple
#44. It is only the sentimentalist who imagines that the profundity of a person's response to tragedy is proportional to the length, volume, or shrillness of his lamentation. #Quote by Theodore Dalrymple
Tragedy quotes by Nikki Rowe
#45. I find myself enjoying being alone a lot of the time, people come and people go and you have to find a way to be ok with both. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Tragedy quotes by Donald Miller
#46. The great tragedy of our lives seems to be that we are smart enough to ask the questions of meaning but too dumb to really figure it out. #Quote by Donald Miller
Tragedy quotes by J.R. Ward
#47. Later, on the night that she and her beloved were slaughtered, when her eyes latched onto the crawl space where she had hidden their heir, their future, the only thing that was greater than the two of them . . . she would have as her last dying thought that it was all meant to be. Whether the tragedy or the luck, all of it had been predetermined, and it had started here, in this instant, as the King's fingers intertwined with her own and the two of them became locked one into the other, for eternity. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Tragedy quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#48. Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot. #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Tragedy quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#49. That even in the face of the most shocking tragedy of my life, I could exert some control over its impact. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Tragedy quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#50. In a world plagued with commonplace tragedies, only one thing exists that truly has the power to save lives, and that is love. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Tragedy quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#51. I know now that all people hunger for a noble, unsullied past, that as sure as the black nationalist dreams of a sublime Africa before the white man's corruption, so did Thomas Jefferson dream of an idyllic Britain before the Normans, so do all of us dream of some other time when things were so simple. I know now that that hunger is a retreat from the knotty present into myth and that what ultimately awaits those who retreat into fairy tales, who seek refuge in the mad pursuit to be made great again, in the image of greatness that never was, is tragedy. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Tragedy quotes by Marty Rubin
#52. Life's true tragedy is all the needless suffering we create for ourselves. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Tragedy quotes by Euripides
#53. AGAMEMNON: Oh immovable law of heaven! Oh my anguish, my relentless fate!

CLYTEMNESTRA: Yours? Mine. Hers. No relenting for any of us. #Quote by Euripides
Tragedy quotes by Marty Rubin
#54. If the sky falls, there'll be a bigger sky behind it. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Tragedy quotes by Ricky Martin
#55. From the day we are born until the day we die, we progress on a path of learning, in which every decision we make or fail to make becomes a part of our personal growth. There is this karmic realm where you have to pass through the challenges that life gives you to liberate yourself from that which weighs you down, preventing you from reaching divinity. We all progress down a spiritual path that offers us opportunities to learn - and even tragedy has its meaning. #Quote by Ricky Martin
Tragedy quotes by Damian Barr
#56. Mary the Canary lives in a cloud of perfume and colours. She's an auxiliary nurse by day and a country and western singer by night: bed pans and power ballass. She's so glamorous she makes Mrs Hart look plain. She is the other woman and I'm bring trained to hate her even though I've never met her. #Quote by Damian Barr
Tragedy quotes by Peter Calthorpe
#57. We've concocted a system where local trips take an auto. That's our biggest tragedy. Streetcars, such as those used in Portland's Pearl District, and elevated people movers, like those in downtown Miami, are moving people from rail stations to their final destinations. But a new concept, PRT, may help revolutionize urban transportation, providing a cost-effective way to get people from train stations to where they need to go. #Quote by Peter Calthorpe
Tragedy quotes by Tony Benn
#58. In the end, the tragedy of Harold Wilson was that you couldn't believe a word he said #Quote by Tony Benn
Tragedy quotes by Tiffany Reisz

Tragedy quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#60. There are only three possible endings - aren't there? - to any story: revenge, tragedy or forgiveness. That's it. All stories end like that. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Tragedy quotes by Delia Ephron
#61. Being in your twenties has changed a lot since I was in my twenties, but it is still a time everything awful that happens is awful in a romantic way, even if you don't admit it (and you can't admit it because then you would be less important in the tragedy you're starring in, your own life) ... because in your twenties you know, even if you don't admit this either, even if this is buried deep in your subconscious, that you can waste an entire decade and still have a life. #Quote by Delia Ephron
Tragedy quotes by Deepak Chopra
#62. The current perception I get from the evening news is that the world is dominated by human failure, crime, catastrophe, corruption, and tragedy. We are all tuning in to see how the human mind is evolving, but the media keeps hammering home the opposite, that the human mind is mired in darkness and folly. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Tragedy quotes by Anne Bishop
#63. Surreal realized Daemon's madness was confined to emotions, to people, to that single tragedy he couldn't face. It was as if Titian had never died, as if Surreal hadn't spent three years whoring in back alleys before Daemon found her again and arranged for a proper education in a Red Moon house. He thought she was still a child, and he continued to fret about Titian's absence. But when she mentioned a book she was reading, he made a dry observation about her eclectic taste and proceeded to tell her about other books that might be of interest. It was the same with music, with art. They posed no threat to him, had no time frame, weren't part of the nightmare of Jaenelle bleeding on that Dark Altar. #Quote by Anne Bishop
Tragedy quotes by Adam M. Grant
#64. The greatest tragedy of mankind," Dalio says, "comes from the inability of people to have thoughtful disagreement to find out what's true." Through #Quote by Adam M. Grant
Tragedy quotes by Leon Bloy
#65. The only real sadness, the only real failure, the only great tragedy in life, is not to become a saint. #Quote by Leon Bloy
Tragedy quotes by Brenna Yovanoff
#66. The fear of God is nothing compared to the fear of tragedy and loss. -The Lady #Quote by Brenna Yovanoff
Tragedy quotes by Lisa Mantchev
#67. No," Bertie said, "something tragic. The most famous of all the Shakespearean tragedies-"
Mustardseed jumped up and down. "Your hair!"
"Shakespearean tragedy, Mustardseed. #Quote by Lisa Mantchev
Tragedy quotes by Olivia Olivia
#68. Isn't that the tragic thing about women? That we live on long after our passions have died? #Quote by Olivia Olivia
Tragedy quotes by Sherman Alexie
#69. I knew I was being an idiot. But I figured if I kept being an idiot, if I didn't actually accept the truth, then the truth would become false. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Tragedy quotes by Jean Bethke Elshtain
#70. Marriage does not serve primarily to accommodate or to mitigate social tragedy of this sort. Its principal function is to prevent or limit the occurrence of such tragedies in the first place. #Quote by Jean Bethke Elshtain
Tragedy quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#71. Tragedy of life: we want to possess more material wealth, but fail to enjoy the spiritual riches. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Tragedy quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#72. Sometimes, when tragedy strikes, people give up hope that they can expect anything more from life, when the real quest is finding out what life expects from them. #Quote by Richard Paul Evans
Tragedy quotes by Auberon Waugh
#73. There is an old story about the boy at Eton who committed suicide. The other boys in his house were gathered together and asked if any of them could suggest a reason for the tragedy. After a long silence a small boy in the front put up his hand: 'Could it have been the food, sir? #Quote by Auberon Waugh
Tragedy quotes by Flower A. Newhouse

Tragedy quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#75. Perfectly," replied Syme; "always be comic in a tragedy. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Tragedy quotes by Tony Parsons
#76. I have this theory about divorce. I have a theory that is never a tragedy for adults and always a tragedy for children. Adults can lose weight, find someone nicer, get their life back. Divorce gives grown-ups a get-out-of-jail-free card. It is the children who pay the price, and pay it for the rest of their lives. But we can't admit that, all us scarred veterans of the divorce court, because it would mean admitting that we have inflicted wounds on our children that they will carry for the rest of their lives. #Quote by Tony Parsons
Tragedy quotes by Aristotle
#77. Every tragedy consists in tying and untying of a knot. #Quote by Aristotle
Tragedy quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#78. I seek to sensitize and clarify the essential elements of my soul. I will leave striving for the flags of fame and fortune behind and go where the soul beckons without fearing the decisive outcome. I will travel in a world without boundaries and embrace danger and awe. I will stand as a witness to comedy, beauty, and tragedy and apply the principles of artistic and ascetic forms of awareness to overcome the inherent frustration of enduring a fundamentally painful human existence. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Tragedy quotes by Herbie Brennan
#79. His eyes were closing again, all of their own accord, so that he lay in red, pain-filled darkness. It occured to him that he was dying and he didn't care.
'He's alive!' Blue said again 'He's breathing!'
'I can't see him breathing. #Quote by Herbie Brennan
Tragedy quotes by Ruth Cardello
#80. I learned that in a tragedy there are no winners, only people struggling to survive the aftermath. #Quote by Ruth Cardello
Tragedy quotes by Terry Pratchett
#81. Most of the great triumphs and tragedies of history are caused not by people being fundamentally good or fundamentally evil, but by people being fundamentally people. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Tragedy quotes by Ayelet Waldman
#82. I'm sure there are people who survive tragedy without humor, but I've never met any of them. Nor would I be particularly interested in writing about them if I did meet them. #Quote by Ayelet Waldman
Tragedy quotes by Arnold Ehret
#83. Life is a tragedy of nutrition #Quote by Arnold Ehret
Tragedy quotes by Walter Scott
#84. The playbill, which is said to have announced the tragedy of Hamlet, the character of the Prince of Denmark being left out. #Quote by Walter Scott
Tragedy quotes by Thomas Robert Malthus
#85. The view which he has given of human life has a melancholy hue,
but he feels conscious that he has drawn these dark tints from a
conviction that they are really in the picture, and not from a jaundiced
eye or an inherent spleen of disposition. #Quote by Thomas Robert Malthus
Tragedy quotes by Marty Rubin
#86. Life is not tragic. The tragedy is what people do to themselves and to each other. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Tragedy quotes by Jill Ker Conway
#87. Her ideas were expressions of her inability to accept her own personal tragedy and her quest for some certainty on which she could rest a troubled spirit. Her her lack of education was a real handicap, because she had no historical or philosophical perspective from which to analyze her own experience of grief and loss. Because we lived in a cultural wasteland of suburbia, there were no schools or evening classes she might have attended which could offer an intellectually disciplined approach to her quest. Nor were there any churches which might have offered comfort through the beauty of their liturgy. #Quote by Jill Ker Conway
Tragedy quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#88. All your sea-omens are of disaster; and of course, with man in his present unhappy state, huddled together in numbers far too great and spending all his surplus time and treasure beating out his brother's brains, any gloomy foreboding is likely to be fulfilled; but your corpse, your parson, your St Elmo's fire is not the cause of the tragedy. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Tragedy quotes by Subcomandante Marcos Laura Castellanos
#89. Don Quixote is the best book out there on political theory, followed by Hamlet and Macbeth. There is no better way to understand the tragedy and the comedy of the Mexican political system than Hamlet, Macbeth and Don Quixote. They're much better than any column of political analysis. #Quote by Subcomandante Marcos Laura Castellanos
Tragedy quotes by Emmet Fox
#90. It is the Law that any difficulties that can come to you at any time, no matter what they are, must be exactly what you need most at the moment, to enable you to take the next step forward by overcoming them. The only real misfortune, the only real tragedy, comes when we suffer without learning the lesson. #Quote by Emmet Fox
Tragedy quotes by William R. Ferris
#91. I think the ties to slavery and the terrible tragedy that followed the Civil War with Jim Crow and racial violence is closely linked to the Confederate flag. #Quote by William R. Ferris
Tragedy quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#92. Life requires us to do things anyway, despite what sort of fear or monster or tragedy or suffering lurks behind that anyway. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Tragedy quotes by Jane Espenson
#93. I like the way that Dexter mixed humor, dark humor and tragedy, in a way I don't think that I've seen another show do. To handle those tonal shifts with so much confidence. Normally, you can mix humor and dark humor, you can mix dark humor and tragedy, but to mix all three ... There are just moments with Robin and Reuben, the next door neighbors, that are just funny. #Quote by Jane Espenson
Tragedy quotes by Woody Allen
#94. I'm sure there are people in Hollywood, whose main drive in film is to make money, who will feel that any use of the word hijacking or any reference to anything violent or remotely associated with the terrible tragedy that occurred will lose customers for them. And that will be the only criterion that will matter and so they'll force the minions that work for them to remove these things from their movies, or not make movies about that subject. #Quote by Woody Allen
Tragedy quotes by Margaret Cho
#95. It's always considered bad taste to comment on a tragedy right when it's happening, but I love when something is considered too soon to talk about because then you can blast past that social censorship to get into something real. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Tragedy quotes by Charles Kennedy
#96. It would be a tragedy if the remarkable international coalition against terrorism, successfully marshalled in the aftermath of 11 September, were to fragment over a unilateral U.S. strike against Baghdad. #Quote by Charles Kennedy
Tragedy quotes by Paula Hawkins
#97. I can't blame this all for my drinking -- I can't blame my parents or my childhood, and abusive uncle or some terrible tragedy. It's my fault. I was a drinker anyway -- I've always liked to drink. But I did become sadder, and sadness gets boring after a while, for the sad person and for everyone around them. And then I went from being a drinker to being a drunk, and there's nothing more boring than that. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
Tragedy quotes by Melina Marchetta
#98. You're going to go living. Because living is the challenge, Josie. Dying is so easy. Sometimes it only takes ten seconds to die. But living? That can take eighty years and you do something in that time, whether it's giving birth to a baby or being a housewife or a barrister or a soldier. You've accomplished something. To throw that away at such a young age, to have no hope, is the biggest tragedy. #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Tragedy quotes by Nizar Qabbani
#99. Your departure is not a tragedy:
I am like a willow tree
That always dies
While standing. #Quote by Nizar Qabbani
Tragedy quotes by Jacqueline Winspear
#100. There is no path set for this kind of shock, and for the grief that attends such terrible news. #Quote by Jacqueline Winspear
Tragedy quotes by Robert Goolrick
#101. Every day there was some new tragedy, some new and inexplicable failure of the ordinary. #Quote by Robert Goolrick
Tragedy quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#102. What are you thinking about?"
"Whether they'll write my life story as a tragedy or an epic fantasy. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Tragedy quotes by Gerald R. Ford
#103. Theirs is an American tragedy in which we all have played a part. It could go on and on, or someone must write "The End" to it. I have concluded that only I can do that. And if I can, I must. #Quote by Gerald R. Ford
Tragedy quotes by Margaret Cho
#104. Life is a tragedy for those who feel and a comedy for those who think. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Tragedy quotes by Dean Koontz
#105. That is not merely a central tragedy of human existence: It is also the political history of the world. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Tragedy quotes by Kathe Koja
#106. Recalling those gone times, old memories lit by the fire of the new, I did not this time wonder how long it would last; I was too smart for that now. Take what you get, and don't think. Of course it could never be that easy, but there were moments, like now, that I could successfully pretend that it was, and I had no inclination to try to peer past those moments. I'm not one who wants to know the future: at the best it spoils the present, with longing or dismay, and at the worst, well. Who really wants to find out how tight the sling is, for your own very personal ass, who wants to know how deep the shit will really be. Not you. Not me either. Because it's rarely bliss saved up, is it, when you finally get there. I'll take my now, waking with a lover's scent on me, around me, take my hopes before they're maybe tragedy; a good morning is a good morning, even if it leads to apocalypse at night. #Quote by Kathe Koja
Tragedy quotes by Vera Brittain
#107. The tragedy of journalism lies in its impermanence; the very topicality which gives it brilliance condemns it to an early death. Too often it is a process of flinging bright balloons in the path of the hurricane, a casting of priceless petals upon the rushing surface of a stream. #Quote by Vera Brittain
Tragedy quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#108. The actual tragedy of Emmett Till, he had told her once, was not the murder of a black child for whistling at a white woman but that some black people thought: But why did you whistle? #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Tragedy quotes by Jeffrey Kluger
#109. What people fear most about tragedy is its randomness - a taxi cab jumps the curb and hits a pedestrian, a gun misfires and kills a bystander. Better to have some rational cause and effect between incident and injury. And if cause and effect aren't possible, better that there at least be some reward for all the suffering. #Quote by Jeffrey Kluger
Tragedy quotes by Cyril Connolly
#110. The English masses are lovable: they are kind, decent, tolerant, practical and not stupid. The tragedy is that they are too many of them, and that they are aimless, having outgrown the servile functions for which they were encouraged to multiply. One day these huge crowds will have to seize power because there will be nothing else for them to do, and yet they neither demand power nor are ready to make use of it; they will learn only to be bored in a new way. #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Tragedy quotes by Sylvia Plath
#111. There are a few times when the songs that are written, the poems that are written, the plays that are written, come alive. By accident you fall onto a stage-set put aside for a tragedy for the lesser gods, and you utter words that were in the script written in the leaves and in the grass for some heroic cast. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Tragedy quotes by Maryrose Wood
#112. To be kept waiting is unfortunate, but to be kept waiting with nothing interesting to read is a tragedy of Greek proportions" -Agatha Swanburne #Quote by Maryrose Wood
Tragedy quotes by David Kuo
#113. I'd used people's stories and their lives to bolster my political arguments for changing welfare. Now, however, I was running into the people themselves, and I realized that using anyone's tragedy for political gain was cowardly. #Quote by David Kuo
Tragedy quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#114. In modern European thought a tragedy is occurring in that the original bonds uniting the affirmative attitude towards the world with ethics are, by a slow but irresistible process, loosening and finally parting. Out of my life and Thought. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Tragedy quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#115. The most powerful country in the world has handed over all of it's affairs, the prosperity of an entire economy, the security of some 300 million citizens, the purity of it's water, the viability of it's air, the safety of it's food, the future of it's vast system of education, the soundness of it's national highways, airways, and railways, the apocalyptic potential of nuclear arsenal to a carnival barker who introduce the phrase "grab em by the pussy", into the national lexicon. It is as if the white tribe united in demonstration to say "if a black man can be president than any white man, no matter how fallen, can be president", and in that perverse way, the democratic dreams of Jefferson and Jackson were fulfilled. The American Tragedy now being wrought, is larger than most imaged and will not end with Trump. In recent times, whiteness as an overt political tactic has been restrained by a kind of cordiality held that it's overt invocation would scare off moderate whites. This has proved to be only half-true at best. Trump's legacy will be exposing the patina of decency for what it is and revealing just how much a demagague can get away with. It does not take much to imagine another politician, wiser in the ways of Washington, schooled in the methodology of governance, now liberated from the pretense of anti-racist civility, doing a much more effective job than Trump. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Tragedy quotes by Chinmayananda Saraswati
#116. The tragedy of human history is decreasing happiness in the midst of increasing comforts. #Quote by Chinmayananda Saraswati
Tragedy quotes by Neil Gaiman
#117. Our word Tragedy comes from the greek, tragos-ode: "The song of the goat." Anybody who has ever heard a goat attempt to sing will know why. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Tragedy quotes by Erwin Raphael McManus
#118. We have defined holiness through what we separate ourselves from rather than what we give ourselves to. I am convinced the great tragedy is not the sins that we commit, but the life that we fail to live. You #Quote by Erwin Raphael McManus
Tragedy quotes by Sejal Badani
#119. Even though not every story ends with a happy ending or begins with tragedy, along the way there are moments of both. And those moments don't define you or even break you - they are simply parts of the whole. #Quote by Sejal Badani
Tragedy quotes by Robyn Schneider
#120. You know how they categorize Shakespeare's plays, right? If it ends with a wedding, it's a comedy. And if it ends with a funeral, it's a tragedy. #Quote by Robyn Schneider
Tragedy quotes by James Thurber
#121. The things we laugh at are awful while they are going on, but get funny when we look back. And other people laugh because they've been through it too. The closest thing to humor is tragedy. #Quote by James Thurber
Tragedy quotes by Bobby Fischer
#122. If you don't win, it's not a great tragedy - the worst that happens is that you lose a game. #Quote by Bobby Fischer
Tragedy quotes by Mona Caird
#123. The world is full of tragedy; and sympathy, a little common sympathy, can do so much to soften the worst of grief. It is for the lack of that, that people despair and go down. #Quote by Mona Caird
Tragedy quotes by David R. Hawkins
#124. Human progress is evolutionary, and therefore mistakes and errors are inevitable. The only real tragedy is to become older but not wiser. #Quote by David R. Hawkins
Tragedy quotes by Renee Carlino
#125. Wine is like poetry. If it's good wine. If it's not, then it's a tragedy. #Quote by Renee Carlino
Tragedy quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#126. You don't have to be strong to survive a bad situation; you simply need a plan. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Tragedy quotes by Helen Gardner
#127. The tragic hero usurps the function of the gods and attempts to remake the world. #Quote by Helen Gardner
Tragedy quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#128. [Dionysos'] being torn into pieces, the genuine Dionysiac suffering, is like a transformation into air, water, earth, and fire, so that we are to regard the state of individuation as the source and primal cause of all suffering ... In the view described here we already have all the constituent elements of a profound way of looking at the world and thus, at the same time, the doctrine of the Mysteries taught by tragedy: the fundamental recognition that everything which exists is a unity; the view that individuation is the primal source of all evil; and art as the joyous hope that the spell of individuation can be broken, a premonition of unity restored. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Tragedy quotes by Michael D. Barnes
#129. It's a tragedy, but with your support and your help we will wage this fight and we're going to win it. #Quote by Michael D. Barnes
Tragedy quotes by Mary MacLane
#130. I shall have to miss forever some beautiful, wonderful things because of that wretched, lonely childhood. There will always be a lacking, a wanting -- some dead branches that never grew leaves. It is not deaths and murders and plots and wars that make life tragedy. It is day after day, and year after year, and Nothing. It is a sunburned little hand reached out and Nothing put into it. #Quote by Mary MacLane
Tragedy quotes by Nicole  Williams
#131. This year wasn't like any before it, I learned more about myself and life an even love than I have in the entire seventeen years before. I learned I'm not the piece of shit everyone likes to believe I am. The piece of shit I believed I was. Someone told me that again and again and again, and it took me the better part of the year, but I think I finally believe her. Because I don't need to believe where I've been is where I'm headed. And I don't need to believe that one tragedy can shape the future. Only I can do that. I see that now. I also know that in the process of me learning this, the person who taught it to me lost her belief in me, and maybe even herself, and the whole damn world. I could go to jail a million times and nothing would be worse than what I did to her. She taught me how to love-she even gave me chance after chance to show her I was capable of it. And I failed her every time. I love you, Lucy Larson. And I'm sorry I had to ruin everything we had to recognize that. And I get why I lost you and I'll never get you back. You save me, Lucy, and I didn't return the favor. And I'm sorry, I just wanted you to know. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Tragedy quotes by Karan Mahajan
#132. Mr. and Mrs. Khurana were forty and forty, and they had suffered the defining tragedy of their lives, and so all other competing tragedies were relegated to mere facts of existence. #Quote by Karan Mahajan
Tragedy quotes by Kristin Hannah
#133. The truth was that her photographs were an extension of who she was, what she thought, how she felt. It took perfect concentration to capture the exquisite pain of personal tragedy on film. You had to be there one hundred percent, in the moment - but it had to be their moment. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Tragedy quotes by Whitney Otto
#134. No one fights dirtier or more brutally than blood; only family knows it's own weaknesses, the exact placement of the heart. The tragedy is that one can still live with the force of hatred, feel infuriated that once you are born to another, that kinship lasts through life and death, immutable, unchanging, no matter how great the misdeed or betrayal. Blood cannot be denied, and perhaps that's why we fight tooth and claw, because we cannot - being only human - put asunder what God has joined together. #Quote by Whitney Otto
Tragedy quotes by V.C. Andrews
#135. What was there about the human condition that made us hold on to tragedy with such tenacity and easily forgo the happiness we could reach readily? #Quote by V.C. Andrews
Tragedy quotes by George Carlin
#136. There are women named Faith, Hope, Joy, and Prudence. Why not Despair, Guilt, Rage, and Grief? It seems only right. 'Tom, I'd like you to meet the girl of my dreams, Tragedy.' These days, Trajedi. #Quote by George Carlin
Tragedy quotes by Sophocles
#137. I live in a place of tears. #Quote by Sophocles
Tragedy quotes by George W. Bush
#138. The action we take and the decisions we make in this decade will have consequences far into this century. If America shows weakness and uncertainty, the world will drift toward tragedy. That will not happen on my watch. #Quote by George W. Bush
Tragedy quotes by Samuel Johnson
#139. When any calamity has been suffered the first thing to be remembered is, how much has been escaped. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Tragedy quotes by Norman Mailer
#140. Because our tragedy is that we diverge as countrymen further and further away from one another, like a space ship broken apart in flight which now drifts mournfully in isolated orbits, satellites to each other, planets none, communications faint. #Quote by Norman Mailer
Tragedy quotes by Marcel Proust
#141. We never see the people who are dear to us save in the animated system, the perpetual motion of our incessant love for them, which, before allowing the images that their faces present to reach us, seizes them in its vortex and flings them back upon the idea that we have always had of them, makes them adhere to it, coincide with it. How, since into the forehead and the cheeks of my grandmother I had been accustomed to read all the most delicate, the most permanent qualities of her mind, how, since every habitual glance is an act of necromancy, each face that we love a mirror of the past, how could I have failed to overlook what had become dulled and changed in her, seeing that in the most trivial spectacles of our daily life, our eyes, charged with thought, neglect, as would a classical tragedy, every image that does not contribute to the action of the play and retain only those that may help to make its purpose intelligible. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Tragedy quotes by Terrance Hayes
#142. Patricia Smith is one of the best poets around and has been for a long time. Her Blood Dazzler is full of capacious soul and formal inventiveness: the compassion and artfulness necessary to capture the tragedies and Tragedy of Katrina. Smith is herself a storm of beautiful, frightening talent. Her words will wash you or wash you away. I consider this new book a major literary event. #Quote by Terrance Hayes
Tragedy quotes by John J. Ratey
#143. In the context of stress, the great paradox of the modern age may be that there is not more hardship, just more news - and too much of it. The 24/7 streaming torrent of tragedy and demands flashing at us from an array of digital displays keeps the amygdala flying. #Quote by John J. Ratey
Tragedy quotes by Aeschylus
#144. PROMETHEUS: 'Oh, it is easy for the one who stands outside the prison-wall of pain to exhort and teach the one who suffers #Quote by Aeschylus
Tragedy quotes by Harlan Coben
#145. Tragedy is a hell of a teacher. It's much too strict, but it's a hell of a teacher. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Tragedy quotes by James S.A. Corey
#146. We've all changed," he said. "By coming here. By going through the trials that we're all going through, we've all been changed. When we go back, none of us will be the people we were before. The tragedy and the loss and the sense of wonder changes what it means to be human. Do you know what I mean?" Oddly, Anna thought she did. Being a minister meant being in the middle of people's lives. Anna had counseled dating congregation members, presided over their weddings, baptized their babies, and in one heartbreaking case presided over the infant's funeral a year later. Members of the congregation included her in most of the important events of their lives. She was used to it, and mostly enjoyed the deep connection to people it brought. Charting the course of a life was making a map of the ways each event changed the person, leaving someone different on the other side. Passing through the Ring and the tragedies it had brought wouldn't leave any of them the same. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Tragedy quotes by Martin O'Malley
#147. We can never completely prevent another tragedy like the Boston Marathon attacks from happening. But every American should ask themselves if their community is as prepared as it could be. #Quote by Martin O'Malley
Tragedy quotes by Juliette Cross
#148. We always knew our story would be a tragedy. #Quote by Juliette Cross
Tragedy quotes by Marvin Sapp
#149. I want people to understand that tragedy and trial does not necessarily mean that you are a victim. #Quote by Marvin Sapp
Tragedy quotes by Paul Dano
#150. In tragedy, it's hard to find a good resolution; it's not black and white: it's a big fog of gray. #Quote by Paul Dano
Tragedy quotes by Harlan Coben
#151. There should have been a dark whisper in the wind. Or maybe a deep chill in the bone. Something. An ethereal song only Elizabeth or I could hear. A tightness in the air. Some textbook premonition. There are misfortunes we almost expect in life - what happened to my parents, for example - and then there are other dark moments, moments of sudden violence that alter everything. There was my life before the tragedy. There is my life now. The two have very little in common. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Tragedy quotes by Colin Cotterill
#152. More panic. More emergencies and disasters. Soon, emergencies fell into a sort of natural ranking: drop-everything emergencies, do-what-you-can emergencies, and you'll just-have-to-wait emergencies. Disasters, too, had their own ratings: unavoidable, did-the-best-we-could, my fault/your fault. Then there were godlike moments when a decision had to be made as to who most deserved to die. By the afternoon of her second day, Dtui wondered whether her heart had shrunk. She felt less. People had become less human. Death had become less of a tragedy. Her patients weren't blacksmiths or housewives, they were percentages. "With this little skill and this little pharmaceutical backup, this patient - let's call her number seven - has a forty percent chance of survival." It amazed and saddened her that, in order to do her job properly, she had to stop caring. #Quote by Colin Cotterill
Tragedy quotes by Peggy Ashcroft
#153. There are some great roles mostly in Shakespeare's tragedies which no one can play at full strength from beginning to end. One simply hopes that one can hit the peaks as often as one has the strength. #Quote by Peggy Ashcroft
Tragedy quotes by Mark Halliday
#154. People need people and the happiest people are
surrounded with friendly flesh.
If you have ten kids they'll be so sweet
ten really sweet kids! Have twelve!
What if there were 48 pro baseball teams,
you could see a damn lot more games!
And in this fashion we get away
from tragedy. Because tragedy comes when someone
gets too special. #Quote by Mark Halliday
Tragedy quotes by Kathleen Dowling Singh
#155. Something of defeat, something of tragedy, can be a sacrament because it stops us and causes us to look deeper. #Quote by Kathleen Dowling Singh
Tragedy quotes by Tiffany McDaniel
#156. Being the devil made him important. Made him visible. And isn't that the biggest tragedy of all? When a boy has to be the devil in order to be significant? #Quote by Tiffany McDaniel
Tragedy quotes by Christine Fonseca
#157. I'd accepted my judgment without question. Agreed to live a mortal life. I didn't know my memories would come with me; didn't know I'd relive them every day.
Death would have been more merciful. #Quote by Christine Fonseca
Tragedy quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#158. It is a tragedy beyond the power of language to convey when what has been imposed on women by force becomes a standard of freedom for women: and all the women say it is so. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Tragedy quotes by Ciara Bravo
#159. 'Big Time Rush' was a great show, and I had some great experiences. It allowed me to become more of a comedic actress, which is also a great skill to have. But there wasn't a whole lot of tragedy in there. Not quite as dark as 'Red Band Society.' So I've been very lucky to have been able to grow in that sense, just through moving to FOX. #Quote by Ciara Bravo
Tragedy quotes by Jayden Hunter
#160. A lot of tragedy would be averted if people didn't confuse trust with love. I expect my clients to trust me. I really don't care if they hate me. ~ Brandon Hull #Quote by Jayden Hunter
Tragedy quotes by Dan Brown
#161. In the fourteenth century, Italian literature was, by requirement, divided into two categories: tragedy, representing high literature, was written in formal Italian; comedy, representing low literature, was written in the vernacular and geared toward the general population. #Quote by Dan Brown
Tragedy quotes by Tillie Cole
#162. We are the Carillo Boys. Three brothers born into chaos and pain. Three brothers who'd endured tragedy and loss. Brothers until the end, bound by blood, our bond unbreakable by unconditional love. #Quote by Tillie Cole
Tragedy quotes by Gwenn Wright
#163. Tragic tales rarely do make sense. #Quote by Gwenn Wright
Tragedy quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#164. We are too near the scene of tragedy to realize that this canker or untouchability has traveled far beyond its prescribed limits and has sapped the very foundation of the whole nation. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Tragedy quotes by John Gray
#165. The good life is not found in dreams of progress,but in coping with tragic contingencies.We have been reared on religions and philosophies that deny the experience of tragedy.Can we imagine a life that is not founded on the consolations of action?Or are we too lax and coarse even to dream of living without them? #Quote by John Gray
Tragedy quotes by Skloot
#166. A book that I would recommend for everyone: The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. #Quote by Skloot
Tragedy quotes by Emilie Loring

Tragedy quotes by Dee Remy
#168. Dark circles under my eyes sink deeper and deeper into my skull, in contrast to my pale skin there is an undeniable resemblance to a fresh corpse. #Quote by Dee Remy
Tragedy quotes by Chris Packham
#169. ... even now, in the twenty-first century, mental health is still steeped in a lethal taboo which locks sick people up in themselves and leads to tragedy. #Quote by Chris Packham
Tragedy quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#170. They are all beasts of burden in a sense, ' Thoreau once remarked of animals, 'made to carry some portion of our thoughts.' Animals are the old language of the imagination; one of the ten thousand tragedies of their disappearance would be a silencing of this speech. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Tragedy quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#171. The part of the tradition that I knew best was mostly written (or rewritten for children) in England and northern Europe. The principal characters were men. If the story was heroic, the hero was a white man; most dark-skinned people were inferior or evil. If there was a woman in the story, she was a passive object of desire and rescue (a beautiful blond princess); active women (dark, witches) usually caused destruction or tragedy. Anyway, the stories weren't about the women. They were about men, what men did, and what was important to men. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Tragedy quotes by Nadia Scrieva
#172. 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
Tragedy quotes by Khem Veasna
#173. It is a real tragedy for a nation when three groups of it's people, namely politicians, religious leaders and charity workes, just pretend to be generous. #Quote by Khem Veasna

Tragedy quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich

Tragedy quotes by Marty Rubin
#178. Living in a godless universe is our freedom, our salvation, not our tragedy. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Tragedy quotes by Paul Isaacs
#179. The Tragedy isn't Autism - The Tragedy is the lack of understanding of Autism, Lack of resources, Interventions not being met with the person in mind and Assumptions being made about the person. #Quote by Paul Isaacs
Tragedy quotes by Conrad Brooks
#180. Sometimes tragedy can strike at the most inopportune time of our lives. How we react to tragedy defines us by underscoring our strengths and subsequently giving rise to our weaknesses. Perhaps identifying us as who we truly are, humans. We are all human: fallible, pretentious, and wonderfully made creatures. None of which are above our natural inclination to fall. Albeit an arduous task to navigate through life's pitfalls and trenches, we are blessed with one of God's most important gifts to help us along the way...family. © #Quote by Conrad Brooks
Tragedy quotes by Nick Hornby
#181. She was trying to say something else; she was trying to say that the inability to articulate what one feels in any satisfactory way is one of our enduring tragedies. It wouldn't have been much, and it wouldn't have been useful, but it would have been something that reflected the gravity and the sadness inside her. Instead, she had snapped at him for being a loser. It was as if she were trying to find a handhold on the boulder of her feelings, and had merely ended up with grit under her nails. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Tragedy quotes by Marie Taylor Collins Swabey
#182. Whereas the comic confronts simply logical contradictions, the tragic confronts a moral predicament. Not minor matters of true andfalse but crucial questions of right and wrong, good and evil face the tragic character in a tragic situation. #Quote by Marie Taylor Collins Swabey
Tragedy quotes by Shelley Moore Capito
#183. Violence against women is not random or anonymous. In West Virginia, 88 percent of sexual-assault victims already know their attacker. In my hometown, Alicia McCormick, an advocate for our domestic-violence shelter at the YWCA, was killed in her home by a man doing handiwork in her apartment complex. That one of my greatest advocates could fall victim to something she fought against her whole life was a tragedy that moved me to action. #Quote by Shelley Moore Capito
Tragedy quotes by Rae Hachton
#184. Hands that never touch. Lips that never meet. The Almost Lovers, never to be. #Quote by Rae Hachton

Tragedy quotes by Rizky Adam Rifai
#186. Don't make all of your sadness to be a miserable tragedy,
Just forget it with your conscious heart and clear mind. #Quote by Rizky Adam Rifai
Tragedy quotes by David Whyte
#187. The tragedy with velocity as the answer to complexity is that, after awhile, you cannot see or comprehend anything that is not traveling at the same speed you are. And you actually start to feel disturbed by people who have a sense of restfulness to their existence. #Quote by David Whyte
Tragedy quotes by Rasheed Ogunlaru
#188. The tragedy about history - personally and globally - is that while we may learn it we rarely learn from it #Quote by Rasheed Ogunlaru
Tragedy quotes by C.S. Lewis
#189. The whole point of her action - the whole grandeur - would lie in taking it without the King's knowledge, in leaving him utterly free to repudiate it, so that all benefits should be his, and all the risk hers, and with the risk, of course, all the magnanimity, the pathos, the tragedy, and the originality. And also, the Tempter hinted, it would be no use asking the King, for he would certainly not approve the action: men were like that. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Tragedy quotes by Kat Rosenfield
#190. In a small town, unexplained tragedy can only go so long before it grows teeth, sprouts sharp claws, and turns, snarling, on its own self. Before fragments of gossip become rumors, and the rumors become suspicions. Before neighbors start eyeing each other with the mistrustful narrowness of oft-kicked dogs. Inside the safe shelter of their homes, husbands and wives draw the blinds tight and turn to each other, worrying at small bits of information and wondering who, who among their shrinking circle of trusted friends, might still know something he isn't telling. #Quote by Kat Rosenfield
Tragedy quotes by Eli Roth
#191. I think in life we get very caught up in the minutia and, unfortunately, it generally takes some sort of tragedy in your life to put things in perspective. #Quote by Eli Roth
Tragedy quotes by Terryl L. Givens
#192. In the Garden story, good and evil are found on the same tree, not in separate orchards. Good and evil give meaning and definition to each other. If God, like us, is susceptible to immense pain, He is, like us, the greater in His capacity for happiness. The presence of such pain serves the larger purpose of God's master plan, which is to maximize the capacity for joy, or in other words, "to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." He can no more foster those ends in the absence of suffering and evil than one could find the traction to run or the breath to sing in the vacuum of space. God does not instigate pain or suffering, but He can weave it into His purposes. "God's power rests not on totalizing omnipotence, but on His ability to alchemize suffering, tragedy, and loss into wisdom, understanding, and joy. #Quote by Terryl L. Givens
Tragedy quotes by Jenny Penn
#193. We mourn for the dead, but it's a selfish act. It may be a tragedy that so many young lives are lost to us, but it's our tragedy alone because they are at peace. #Quote by Jenny Penn
Tragedy quotes by Cathy Hughes
#194. The tragedy is women of color have made more progress in basketball than they have in broadcasting. #Quote by Cathy Hughes
Tragedy quotes by D. Todd Christofferson
#195. We need strong Christians who can persevere against hardship, who can sustain hope through tragedy, who can lift others by their example and their compassion, and who can consistently overcome temptations. We need strong Christians who can make important things happen by their faith and who can defend the truth of Jesus Christ against moral relativism and militant atheism. What is the source of such moral and spiritual power, and how do we obtain it? The source is God. Our access to that power is through our covenants with Him. #Quote by D. Todd Christofferson
Tragedy quotes by Mike McCormack
#196. What no tourist bumf will tell you is that this inlet is suffused with an atmosphere of ineffable sadness. Partly a trick of the light and climatic factors, partly also the lingering residue of an historical tragedy which still resonates through rock and water down seven generations of fretful commemorative attempts and dissonant historical hermeneutics. Now think of grey shading towards gunmetal across an achromatic spectrum; think also of turbid cumulus clouds pouring down five centimeters of rainfall above the national average and you have some idea of the light reflected within the walls of this inlet. This is the type of light which lends itself to vitamin D deficiency, baseline serotonin levels, spluttering neurotransmitters and mild but by no means notional depression. It is the type of light wherein ghosts go their rounds at all hours of the day. #Quote by Mike McCormack
Tragedy quotes by Cory Duchesne
#197. What people instinctively regard as cool is real power - consistency. Pathetic is not cool. Being locked in a tragedy, but not knowing it. That's lameness. #Quote by Cory Duchesne
Tragedy quotes by Joyce Cary
#198. A perpetually new and lively world, but a dangerous one, full of tragedy and injustice. #Quote by Joyce Cary
Tragedy quotes by Geoffrey Harvey
#199. In his Preface to the 1892 edition of Tess of the d'Urbervilles Hardy warns the reader that 'a novel is an impression, not an argument'. However, the text offers several explanations of Tess's tragedy; social, psychological, hereditary, and fatalistic, all of which proceed from the assumption that Hardy's text is in some sense determined, and that the character of Tess is somehow knowable. Indeed, the tragedy of Tess is in this sense overdetermined. But it should be remembered that the character of Tess is constructed in the text from many points of observation, including that of the ambivalent narrator; constructed that is from impressions. #Quote by Geoffrey Harvey
Tragedy quotes by Paul Klee
#200. The art of mastering life is the prerequisite for all further forms of expression, whether they are paintings, sculptures, tragedies, or musical compositions. #Quote by Paul Klee
