Trouble quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#1. Oh, tempest-tossed believer, it is a happy trouble which drives you to your Father! #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Trouble quotes by Bertolt Brecht
#2. What they could do with 'round here is a good war. What else can you expect with peace running wild all over the place? You know what the trouble with peace is? No organization. #Quote by Bertolt Brecht
Trouble quotes by Adele Rose
#3. PE! This word was comprised of two single letters, which would normally not cause anyone any trouble. They were two single letters that were usually associated with the further words of "health" and "extended life" and therefore, had a positive reputation. However, for me, the P and the E put together was the worst possible combination. Every time they were mentioned, I would sigh in displeasure, my heart rate would increase and I would feel lightheaded. After all, in my mind, PE = exercise and exercise = torture! #Quote by Adele Rose
Trouble quotes by Terence McKenna
#4. History is ending because the dominator culture has led the human species into a blind alley, and as the inevitable chaostrophie approaches, people look for metaphors and answers. Every time a culture gets into trouble it casts itself back into the past looking for the last sane moment it ever knew. And the last sane moment we ever knew was on the plains of Africa 15,000 years ago rocked in the cradle of the Great Horned Mushroom Goddess before history, before standing armies, before slavery and property, before warfare and phonetic alphabets and monotheism, before, before, before. And this is where the future is taking us because the secret faith of the twentieth century is not modernism, the secret faith of the twentieth century is nostalgia for the archaic, nostalgia for the paleolithic, and that gives us body piercing, abstract expressionism, surrealism, jazz, rock-n-roll and catastrophe theory. The 20th century mind is nostalgic for the paradise that once existed on the mushroom dotted plains of Africa where the plant-human symbiosis occurred that pulled us out of the animal body and into the tool-using, culture-making, imagination-exploring creature that we are. And why does this matter? It matters because it shows that the way out is back and that the future is a forward escape into the past. This is what the psychedelic experience means. Its a doorway out of history and into the wiring under the board in eternity. And I tell you this because if the community understan #Quote by Terence McKenna
Trouble quotes by Ilona Andrews
#5. By the way," Arabella said, "you might get a call from school. I forgot to mention it before."
Mother paused. "Why?"
"Well, we were playing basketball and I guess I pulled on Diego's jersey. I don't even remember doing it. And Valerie decided it would be a good idea to snitch on me. I mean, I saw her walk over to the coach and pull on his sleeve like she was five or something. I even asked Diego if he cared, and he said he didn't even notice. It's a sport! I was into it."
"Aha," Mother said. "Get to the call-from-school part."
"I told her that snitches get stitches. And Coach said that I made a terrorist threat."
"That's stupid," Lina said, pushing back her dark hair. "It's not a threat, it's just a thing people say."
"Snitches do get stitches." Bern shrugged.
"Your school is stupid," Grandma Frida said.
"So he said I had to apologize and I refused, since she snitched on me, so I got sent to the office. I'm not in trouble, but they want to move me to third-period PE now."
Well, it could've been worse. At least she didn't hurt anybody. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Trouble quotes by Robert Reich
#6. We never used to blink at taking a leadership role in the world. And we understood leadership often required something other than drones and bombs. We accepted global leadership not just for humanitarian reasons, but also because it was in our own best interest. We knew we couldn't isolate ourselves from trouble. There was no place to hide. #Quote by Robert Reich
Trouble quotes by Andrew Natsios
#7. Many, many large cities have old, crumbling infrastructure that have got to be dealt with in the nearest future, or they're going to be in serious trouble. They'll be unlivable if they don't do something. #Quote by Andrew Natsios
Trouble quotes by Natalie Portman
#8. I'd basically have trouble with any job that doesn't require me to wear silly clothes and talk in funny voices. #Quote by Natalie Portman
Trouble quotes by Martin Amis
#9. Yet no one seemed to have thought through the implications of a world in which everyone cheated. The other morning Keith had bought five hundred vanity sachets of Outrage, his staple perfume. At lunchtime he discovered that they all contained water, a substance not much less expensive than Outrage, but harder to sell. Keith was relieved that he had already unloaded half the consignment on Damian Noble in the Portobello Road. Then he held Damian's tenners up to the light: they were crude forgeries. He passed on the notes without much trouble, in return for twenty-four bottles of vodka which, it turned out, contained a misty, faintly scented liquid. Outrage! #Quote by Martin Amis
Trouble quotes by Glen Campbell
#10. I like to start the day early, it keeps me out of trouble. #Quote by Glen Campbell
Trouble quotes by Pat Sajak
#11. That's the trouble with trying to influence an undecided voter. First you have to find one. #Quote by Pat Sajak
Trouble quotes by John Green
#12. She looked up at me, her face mostly revealed now, and she smiled just the littlest bit.
'It amazes me that you can find all that shit even remotely interesting.'
'Huh?'
'College: getting in or not getting in. Trouble: getting in or not getting in. School: getting A's or getting D's. Career: having or not having. House: big or small, owning or renting. Money: having or not having. It's all so boring. #Quote by John Green
Trouble quotes by Bobby Vee
#13. I punched my buddy in the nose after lunch, now I'm in trouble cause the dean saw the punch. #Quote by Bobby Vee
Trouble quotes by David O. Russell
#14. David O. Russell's best films are thrilling high wire acts that run the moment to moment risk of tumbling to the ground. In his latest, "Joy," Russell has more trouble than usual keeping his balance on the wire. #Quote by David O. Russell
Trouble quotes by Duke Haney
#15. It all began with a fuck. What doesn't? I fucked the wrong person; I fucked up the right one; somebody played me a song. It changed my whole life, that song. That's why I later went to so much trouble to find the guy who wrote and sang it. #Quote by Duke Haney
Trouble quotes by Heber C. Kimball
#16. Let me say to you, that many of you will see the time when you will have all the trouble, trial and persecution that you can stand, and plenty of opportunities to show that you are true to God and his work. This Church has before it many close places through which it will have to pass before the work of God is crowned with victory. The time will come when no man nor woman will be able to endure on borrowed light. Each will have to be guided by the light within himself. If you do not have it, how can you stand? #Quote by Heber C. Kimball
Trouble quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
#17. Trouble is here. It is for a purpose. Use it for the purpose for which it was intended - to help you grow. Thank God for your troubles. #Quote by Norman Vincent Peale
Trouble quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#18. This diary will tell the real life story of my great-grandmother Yasutani Jiko. She was a nun and a novelist and New Woman7 of the Taisho era.8 She was also an anarchist and a feminist who had plenty of lovers, both males and females, but she was never kinky or nasty. And even though I may end up mentioning some of her love affairs, everything I write will be historically true and empowering to women, and not a lot of foolish geisha crap. So if kinky nasty things are your pleasure, please close this book and give it to your wife or co-worker and save yourself a lot of time and trouble. 4. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
Trouble quotes by Graeme Simsion
#19. I was having trouble making sense of all that Rosie was saying, doubtless due to the effects of the alcohol and her perfume. However, she had given me an opportunity to keep the conversation on safe ground. The inheritance of common genetically influenced traits such as eye colour is more complex than is generally understood, and I was confident that I could speak on the topic for long enough to occupy the remainder of our journey. But I realised that this was a defensive action and impolite to Rosie who had risked considerable embarrassment and damage to her relationship with Stefan for my benefit. #Quote by Graeme Simsion
Trouble quotes by Bob Edwards
#20. One trouble with being efficient is that it makes everybody hate you so. #Quote by Bob Edwards
Trouble quotes by Peter Beard
#21. I'm for conservation, but it's mostly a con. That's the trouble. It's sentimental. Buy an elephant a drink, a lion an acre. #Quote by Peter Beard
Trouble quotes by Nadia Boulanger
#22. It is nothing to succeed if one has not taken great trouble, and it is nothing to fail if one has done the best one could. #Quote by Nadia Boulanger
Trouble quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#23. Dogs again had it right. They didn't trouble themselves with mysteries that could never be solved anyway. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Trouble quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#24. In times of trouble, be strong. And wait patiently for God to rescue you. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Trouble quotes by Samuel Smiles
#25. The cheapest of all things is kindness, its exercise requiring the least possible trouble and self-sacrifice. Win hearts, said Burleigh to Queen Elizabeth, and you have all men's hearts and purses. #Quote by Samuel Smiles
Trouble quotes by Georgette Heyer
#26. I always agree on trivial points,' replied Francis. 'It saves trouble. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Trouble quotes by Rachel Cohn
#27. I lost myself immediately in one of the books, only emerging when the phone rang.
"Dashiell?" my father intoned. As if someone else with my voice might be answering the phone at my mother's apartment.
"Yes, Father?"
"Leeza and I would like to wish you a merry Christmas."
"Thank you, Father. And to you, as well."
[awkward pause]
[even more awkward pause]
"I hope your mother isn't giving you any trouble."
Oh, Father, I love it when you play this game.
"She told me if I clean all the ashes out of the grate, then I'll be able to help my sisters get ready for the ball."
"It's Christmas, Dashiell. Can't you give that attitude a rest?"
"Merry Christmas, Dad. And thanks for the presents."
"What presents?"
"I'm sorry - those were all from Mom, weren't they?"
"Dashiell ... "
"I gotta go. The gingerbread men are on #Quote by Rachel Cohn
Trouble quotes by Parker Peevyhouse
#28. I kicked off my shoes and moved in knee-deep. The shock of cold water stole my breath. Cole was dark from the sun, his yellow hair like parched grass. He cocked his head to the side like my grandpop used to do; I swear it's a gesture taught to all farm boys who plan on growing up to make trouble. I fought to stand my ground against the current pushing at the backs of my legs.

"Can't you swim?" Cole had asked.

"I learned in this creek. They threw me in and I declined the opportunity to drown. #Quote by Parker Peevyhouse
Trouble quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#29. Tally smiled. At least she was causing trouble to the end. "I'm Tally Youngblood," she said. "make me pretty. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Trouble quotes by Robert G. Ingersoll
#30. My dog," he said, "just barks and plays -has all he wants to eat. He never works- has no trouble about business. In a little while he dies, and that is all. I work with all my strength. I have no time to play. I have trouble every day. In a little while I will die, and then I go to hell. I wish that I had been a dog. #Quote by Robert G. Ingersoll
Trouble quotes by Anonymous
#31. God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. 2 So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. 3 Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! #Quote by Anonymous
Trouble quotes by Sri Aurobindo
#32. It is true that the subliminal in man is the largest part of his nature and has in it the secret of the unseeen dynamisms which explain his surface activities. But the lower vital subconscious which is all that this psycho-analysis of Freud seems to know, - and of that it knows only a few ill-lit corners, - is no more than a restricted and very inferior portion of the subliminal whole ... to begin by opening up the lower subconscious, risking to raise up all that is foul or obscure in it, is to go out of one's way to invite trouble. #Quote by Sri Aurobindo
Trouble quotes by Thomas Fleming Day
#33. Bad cooking is responsible for more trouble at sea than all other things put together. #Quote by Thomas Fleming Day
Trouble quotes by Rajneesh
#34. 'I am' is nothing but another name for the ego. Now you will be getting into trouble. If the ego is convinced that the only way is to drop the ego, then who is going to drop whom? And how? It will be like pulling yourself up by your own shoestrings. You will look just silly. Watch each word that you use. 'I am' is nothing but the ego. #Quote by Rajneesh
Trouble quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
#35. Asking questions, demanding explanations - these things always led to trouble #Quote by Jennifer Donnelly
Trouble quotes by Erwin Schrodinger
#36. The real trouble is this: giving expression to thought by the observable medium of words is like the work of the silkworm. In being made into silk, the material achieves its value. But in the light of day it stiffens; it becomes something alien, no longer malleable. True, we can then more easily and freely recall the same thought, but perhaps we can never experience it again in its original freshness. #Quote by Erwin Schrodinger
Trouble quotes by Hazel Scott
#37. Any woman who has a great deal to offer the world is in trouble. And if she's a black woman, seh's in deep trouble. #Quote by Hazel Scott
Trouble quotes by Maxwell Maltz
#38. A bicycle maintains its poise and equilibrium only so long as it is going forward towards something. You have a good bicycle. Your trouble is you are trying to maintain your balance sitting still, with no place to go. #Quote by Maxwell Maltz
Trouble quotes by M.F. Moonzajer
#39. The world is in trouble because of a few funny sympathetic philosophers #Quote by M.F. Moonzajer
Trouble quotes by Philip Zimbardo
#40. What troubles me is the Internet and the electronic technology revolution. Shyness is fueled in part by so many people spending huge amounts of time alone, isolated on e-mail, in chat rooms, which reduces their face-to-face contact with other people. #Quote by Philip Zimbardo
Trouble quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#41. What do girls do who haven't any mothers to help them through their troubles? #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Trouble quotes by Robert Aickman
#42. My dilemma is that of the civil servant. If a civil servant takes an initiative and things go right with it, he cannot, in the nature of his employment, look for much in the way of reward; whereas if his initiative goes wrong, he can expect all kinds of trouble, everything from reprimand to blocked promotion, and a permanent black mark against his name in the files. It is accepted, therefore, that the way to advance in the civil service, or in any field where civil service conditions prevail, is never take an initiative and never to support anyone else's. It is inevitable that this should be so. #Quote by Robert Aickman
Trouble quotes by Dave Matthews
#43. Come and relax now, put your troubles down. No need to bear the weight of your worries, just let them all fall away. #Quote by Dave Matthews
Trouble quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#44. I rolled my eyes. "For defending my honor, you dullard."
He yanked me beneath a shadowed awning. I had a moment's panic when I thought he'd spotted trouble, but then his arms were around me and his lips were pressed to mine.
When he finally drew back, my cheeks were warm and my legs had gone wobbly.
"Just to be clear," he said, "I'm not really interested in defending your honor."
"Understood," I managed, hoping I didn't sound too ridiculously breathless. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Trouble quotes by Undrai Fizer
#45. Intentional living will eradicate the need of excuse as well as the constant submission to distraction. Allow yourself to "become wealthy in self-significance!" Allow yourself to become enriched in Spirit. Remember, there is no trouble. Trouble is "created" and established when we "see ourselves inferior" to what we are facing. When we lack power, we lack movement! When we lack hope, we lack momentum! Trouble will disappear "as soon as our Mindset becomes enriched!" When we can afford to see things clearly, without depression or self-doubt, we have awakened our new heart! #Quote by Undrai Fizer
Trouble quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#46. 'Genius' which means transcendent capacity of taking trouble, first of all. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Trouble quotes by Phillip E. Johnson
#47. A constitutional democracy is in serious trouble if its citizenry does not have a certain degree of education and civic virtue. #Quote by Phillip E. Johnson
Trouble quotes by Rogers Hornsby
#48. The big trouble is not really who isn't in the Hall of Fame, but who is. It was established for a select few. #Quote by Rogers Hornsby
Trouble quotes by Liz Moore
#49. Some people do have trouble with Kensington, but to me the neighborhood itself has become like a relative, slightly problematic but dear in the old-fashioned way that that word is sometimes used, treasured, valuable to me. #Quote by Liz Moore
Trouble quotes by Milton Berle
#50. For every studen with a spark of brilliance, there are about ten with ignition trouble. #Quote by Milton Berle
Trouble quotes by Shoshana Zuboff
#51. Labor came to humanity with the fall from grace and was at best a penitential sacrifice enabling purity through humiliation. Laborwas toil, distress, trouble, fatigue
an exertion both painful and compulsory. Labor was our animal condition, struggling to survive in dirt and darkness. #Quote by Shoshana Zuboff
Trouble quotes by Jim Butcher
#52. That's just a fiction," I said, "a little game of protocol." "Little games of protocol are how one shows respect, especially to those with whom one does not get along famously well. It can be tedious, but generally is less trouble than a duel would be. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Trouble quotes by Misha Glenny
#53. In 1979, Dubai had learned a valuable lesson from the Iranian Revolution and Soviet invasion of Afghanistan: trouble has its bright side. #Quote by Misha Glenny
Trouble quotes by Charles Kettering
#54. Don't bring anything to me but trouble. #Quote by Charles Kettering
Trouble quotes by J.K. Rowling
#55. You think the dead we have loved ever truly leave us? You think that we don't recall them more clearly than ever in times of great trouble? Your father is alive in you, Harry, and shows himself most plainly when you have need of him. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Trouble quotes by Frederick Lenz
#56. We see the most beautiful creations whither. The beautiful young maiden becomes the old woman and she hates her body because it isn't what it used to be. The young man becomes the old dotard who has trouble remembering. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Trouble quotes by Bill Cosby
#57. We are all anxious to be accepted. But if you have a strong mother and father who tell you that you don't have to dress a crazy way, or hang out with people who are looking for trouble in order to be loved and accepted, then half the battle is over. #Quote by Bill Cosby
Trouble quotes by Marquis De Sade
#58. Those laws, being forged for universal application, are in perpetual conflict with personal interest, just as personal interest is always in contradiction with the general interest. Good for society, our laws are very bad for the individuals whereof it is composed; for, if they one time protect the individual, they hinder, trouble, fetter him for three quarters of his life. #Quote by Marquis De Sade
Trouble quotes by Wendy Higgins
#59. I laid back the lounge chair and rolled to my stomach, content.
Sounds of splashing faded as I dozed.
And then I heard a beautiful voice ...
"Cover your arse, and nobody gets hurt."
I lifted my head to see Kaidan crouched next to me. He was here! Just as I was about to get up and throw my arms around him, his gaze slid down my body to my butt and stayed there. Hello, stormy eyes.
I felt twice as hot under the sun as I had one minute ago.
I threw the towel over my body, which forced his eyes back to mine.
"Hey," I whispered.
He touched my face, and I leaned into his palm.
"I feel like it's been a year since I saw you," he said softly. "I've missed you."
I reached up and cupped his hand. "I've missed you, too."
"But you're still in trouble." His voice was low and gravelly. #Quote by Wendy Higgins
Trouble quotes by Amy Carmichael
#60. Let us end on a very simple note: Let us listen to simple words; our Lord speak simply: "Trust Me, My child," He says. "Trust Me with a humbler heart and a fuller abandon to My will than ever thou didst before. Trust Me to pour My love through thee, as minute succeeds minute. And if thou shouldst be conscious of anything hindering that flow, do not hurt My love by going away from Me in discouragement, for nothing can hurt so much as that. Draw all the closer to Me; come, flee unto Me to hide thee, even from thyself. Tell Me about the trouble. Trust Me to turn My hand upon thee and thoroughly to remove the boulder that has choked they river-bed, and take away all the sand that has silted up the channel. I will not leave thee until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. I will perfect that which concerneth thee. Fear thou not, O child of My love; fear not. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Trouble quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#61. You think you're a very clever fellow, don't you?" Saldur challenged.
"No, Your Grace," Merrick replied. "Clever is the man who makes a fortune selling dried-up cows, explaining how it saves the farmers the trouble of getting up every morning to milk them. I'm not clever - I'm a genius. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Trouble quotes by Milton Berle
#62. Your marriage is in trouble if your wife says, 'You're only interested in one thing,' and you can't remember what it is. #Quote by Milton Berle
Trouble quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#63. So she doesn't call desertion, poverty, and hard work troubles? She's a brave little girl, and I shall be proud to know her. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Trouble quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#64. Happiness is caused by things that happen around me, and circumstances will mar it; but joy flows right on through trouble; joy flows in the night as well as in the day; joy flows through persecution and opposition. It is an unceasing fountain bubbling up in the heart; a secret spring the world can't see and doesn't know anything about. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Trouble quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#65. At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: "I have to go to work - as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I'm going to do what I was born for - the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm? #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Trouble quotes by Sir Laurens Van Der Post
#66. Man is everywhere dangerously unaware of himself. We really know nothing about the nature of man, and unless we hurry to get to know ourselves we are in dangerous trouble. #Quote by Sir Laurens Van Der Post
Trouble quotes by Ilona Andrews
#67. People lie for many reasons: to save themselves, to get out of trouble, to avoid hurting someone's feelings. Manipulators lie to get what they want. Narcissists lie to make themselves seem grand to others and themselves. Recovering alcoholics lie to safeguard their tattered reputation. And those who love us most lie to us most of all, because life is a bumpy ride and they want to smooth it out as much as possible. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Trouble quotes by Robert Nathan
#68. He gave me a timid smile. "The trouble is," he said, "that nobody paints our times. Nobody paints the age we live in." I murmured something about Benton, and John Steuart Curry. "No," he said, "we'll never find out what the age is like, by peering in a landscape." I #Quote by Robert Nathan
Trouble quotes by Tina J. Richardson
#69. Sometimes i feel upset but don't have the word to explain what really is wrong. Because most of the time I'm not sure what is actually wrong. I have trouble recognizing my emotions and feelings. #Quote by Tina J. Richardson
Trouble quotes by Craig Schaefer
#70. She has a habit of downplaying trouble. I don't suppose she told you about Tony Vance or Sheldon Kaufman? They were a couple of sorcerers in her last crew." Angus shook his head. "Not a word. What happened to 'em?" "I did. #Quote by Craig Schaefer
Trouble quotes by Jason Aldean
#71. I don't think I really have any wisdom. Stay out of trouble. Good luck. Stay away from women because they will burn you, haha. #Quote by Jason Aldean
Trouble quotes by Barbara Walters
#72. When your child is in trouble, the first thing you do is blame yourself. #Quote by Barbara Walters
Trouble quotes by Zoey Hunter
#73. My trouble is, I have stopped believing in miracles. Or rather, I have learned from experience that what is at first touted as a miracle, soon shows itself to be a curse. #Quote by Zoey Hunter
Trouble quotes by Mencius
#74. It's simple: To say anything about the nature of things, you must attend to the facts, facts in their original form. The trouble with knowledge is that it keeps chiseling things away. #Quote by Mencius
Trouble quotes by Tony Robbins
#75. Meanings don't just affect the way we feel; they affect all of our relationships and interactions. Some people think the first ten years of a relationship is just the beginning; that they're just now getting to know each other, and it's really exciting. It's an opportunity to go deeper. Other people could be ten days into a relationship, and the first time they have an argument, they think it's the end.
Now tell me, if you think this is the beginning of a relationship, are you going to behave the same way as if it were the end? That one slight shift in perception, in meaning, can change your whole life in a moment. In the beginning of a relationship, if you're totally in love and attracted, what will you do for the other person? The answer is: anything! If he or she asks you to take out the trash, you might leap to your feet and say, "Anything that lights you up, sweetheart!" But after seven days, seven years, or seventy years, people say things like, "What the hell do you think I am, your janitor?!" And they wonder what happened to the passion in their life. I've often shared with couples having trouble in their relationships that if you do what you did in the beginning of the relationship, there wont be an end! Because in the beginning of the relationship, you were a giver, not an accountant. You weren't weighing constantly the meaning of who was giving more. Your entire focus was just lighting up that person, and his or her happiness made you feel like your life was #Quote by Tony Robbins
Trouble quotes by James Herriot
#76. But Siegfried held up a restraining hand. "Just one moment," he slurred. "The windscreen is very dirty. I'll give it a rub for you." The ladies watched him silently as he weaved round to the back of the car and began to rummage in the boot. The love light had died from their eyes. I don't know why he took the trouble; possibly it was because, through the whisky mists, he felt he must re-establish himself as a competent and helpful member of the party. But the effort fell flat; the effect was entirely spoiled. He was polishing the glass with a dead hen. #Quote by James Herriot
Trouble quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#77. Sometimes I wonder if he wasn't born dead. I never met a man who was less interested in the living. Sometimes I think that's the trouble with the world: too many people in high places who are stone-cold dead. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut

Trouble quotes by Kaia Bennett
#79. Oh, give it a rest, will you? You're no victim. You got to come and I got a bloody lip and a smacked face for the trouble. #Quote by Kaia Bennett
Trouble quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#80. The literal mind is baffled by the ironic one, demanding explanations that only intensify the joke. A vintage example, and one that really did occur, is that of P.G. Wodehouse, captured by accident during the German invasion of France in 1940. Josef Goebbels's propaganda bureaucrats asked him to broadcast on Berlin radio, which he incautiously agreed to do, and his first transmission began:
Young men starting out in life often ask me - "How do you become an internee?" Well, there are various ways. My own method was to acquire a villa in northern France and wait for the German army to come along. This is probably the simplest plan. You buy the villa and the German army does the rest.
Somebody - it would be nice to know who, I hope it was Goebbels - must have vetted this and decided to let it go out as a good advertisement for German broad-mindedness. The "funny" thing is that the broadcast landed Wodehouse in an infinity of trouble with the British authorities, representing a nation that prides itself above all on a sense of humor. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Trouble quotes by Dorothy Parker
#81. Everybody's got their troubles. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Trouble quotes by Meraaqi
#82. I want to
peel away all the labels
I had once given to others
and place them
upon the fabric
of my own identity.

They have reflected back to me,
everything that I refuse
to See in myself. #Quote by Meraaqi
Trouble quotes by Charles Bukowski
#83. The trouble with these people is that their cities have never been bombed and their mothers have never been told to shut up. #Quote by Charles Bukowski

Trouble quotes by Lasse Hallstrom
#86. My films do have characters who have trouble escaping the world around them. #Quote by Lasse Hallstrom
Trouble quotes by Liza Dalby
#87. What was the point, I told myself, of trying to explain to people who would never understand? Frankness just stirred up trouble amoung women who thought only of themselves, always looking for reasons to carp and complain. It was so rare to find anyone who truly understood, I had learned to keep my thoughts to myself. In fact, if I had never had the experience of knowing such a one, I might have said it was impossible. Most people judge everything by their own narrow standards. Page 357 #Quote by Liza Dalby
Trouble quotes by Jonathan Falwell
#88. Jesus did not promise us a life free from trouble. He is called the God of all comfort - and if there were no troubles, He would not need to be called by this name. Jesus does not promise freedom from all problems, but He does promise that we will never face situations alone. #Quote by Jonathan Falwell
Trouble quotes by Warren Buffett
#89. Knowing the edge of your competency is important. If you think you know more than you do, you will get in trouble. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Trouble quotes by Curt Gowdy
#90. I thought it was terrible. I don't know who to believe. Williams was very loyal and honest. Nobody could ever say different. Sometimes, that got him into a lot of trouble. But after he died and they cut his head off, that made me sick. #Quote by Curt Gowdy
Trouble quotes by Zola Budd
#91. There were always a couple of loonies who caused all the trouble. #Quote by Zola Budd
Trouble quotes by Steve Berry
#92. Follow your heart. It rarely leads you astray. It's thinking that gets us into trouble. #Quote by Steve Berry
Trouble quotes by Friedensreich Hundertwasser
#93. Today we live in a chaos of straight lines, in a jungle of straight lines. If you do not believe this, take the trouble to count the straight lines which surround you. Then you will understand, for you will never finish counting. #Quote by Friedensreich Hundertwasser
Trouble quotes by Lee Trevino
#94. Seve Ballesteros was the best trouble-shot player who ever lived. It didn't matter how far in the woods you put that guy, he'd find a way to get out. But Seve inadvertently put a lot of big numbers on the scorecards of average players, because he inspired them to take dumb chances. #Quote by Lee Trevino
Trouble quotes by T. Colin Campbell
#95. If we limit our sight to individual players, we'll never see the big picture. The issue is a systemic one, maintained by interconnected actors, all acting in their self-interest to further their goals. The trouble is not, or not always, the actors themselves, or their intrinsic motivations. Instead, it's the overarching goal of the entire system that's at fault: corporate profit above public health. #Quote by T. Colin Campbell
Trouble quotes by Napoleon Hill
#96. The only trouble with this world today lies in our lack of understanding of the power of imagination. #Quote by Napoleon Hill

#97. [A] quotation is a handy thing to have about, saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself, always a laborious business.

Trouble quotes by Leonard Peltier
#98. At this writing I can't even shut my lower jaw because of inadequate health care. I can't chew my food, I have trouble walking ... the list goes on. But more than anything I want to go home. If you follow the laws at the time of my conviction I should have been released already. #Quote by Leonard Peltier

#99. Whatever happens on the golf course is OK, because if I put the ball in trouble I know that I have the skills to get it out of trouble and back into play. #Quote by Walter Hagen
Trouble quotes by Merlyn
#100. Why, I believe Sir Ector would have been gladder to get a by-our-lady tilting blue for your tutor, that swings himself along on his knuckles like an anthropoid ape, rather than a magician of known probity and international reputation with first-class honours from every European university. The trouble with the Norman aristocracy is that they are games-mad, that is what it is, games-mad. #Quote by Merlyn

#108. I told the waiter you're vegetarian, and the chef is working up a special menu to bring out." Kathleen smiled as if she'd pulled off the coup of the century.

"That's so nice of you," I said. Nobody had ever gone to this much trouble for me. I deliberately didn't look at Jayson, in case he was grumpy over the whole thing. I wanted to sigh, too, since Kathleen wanted to woo me more than her son ever would. #Quote by Connie Suttle
Trouble quotes by Bengie Molina
#109. I'm a pretty easygoing guy. I'm not hard to get along with. I never had anybody that I had trouble with. On the other team, sometimes you don't like players because of the way they act, but then you get to know them and then they're very good people. But I never disliked anybody. #Quote by Bengie Molina
Trouble quotes by Adam Mickley Wood
#110. Theres a process of self doubt when things go wrong. Whether or not its personal or a friend in trouble, looking at ones self isn't always the answer neither is seeking god. Just acception and the will to decide is a human condition, but the circle of choices flux with time. So fight my friend or choose your demise, because after all we are only human. #Quote by Adam Mickley Wood

Trouble quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#115. What's the trouble?" I said, knowing well what that trouble was.

"I've a notion in my head that would make the most splendid story that was ever written. Do let me write it out here. It's such a notion!"

There was no resisting the appeal. I set him a table; he hardly thanked me, but plunged into the work at once. For half an hour the pen scratched without stopping. Then Charlie sighed and tugged his hair. The scratching grew slower, there were more erasures, and at last ceased. The finest story in the world would not come forth.

"It looks such awful rot now," he said, mournfully. "And yet it seemed so good when I was thinking about it. What's wrong?"

I could not dishearten him by saying the truth. So I answered: "Perhaps you don't feel in the mood for writing."

"Yes I do--except when I look at this stuff. Ugh!"

"Read me what you've done," I said.

"He read, and it was wondrous bad, and he paused at all the specially turgid sentences, expecting a little approval; for he was proud of those sentences, as I knew he would be.

"It needs compression," I suggested, cautiously.

"I hate cutting my things down. I don't think you could alter a word here without spoiling the sense. It reads better aloud than when I was writing it."

"Charlie, you're suffering from an alarming disease afflicting a numerous class. Put the thing by, and tackle it again in a week."

Trouble quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#118. Yet there is no gainsaying but that it must have been somewhat sweeter in that dewy morning of creation, when it was young and fresh, when the feet of the tramping millions had not trodden its grass to dust, nor the din of the myriad cities chased the silence forever away. Life must have been noble and solemn to those free-footed, loose-robed fathers of the human race, walking hand in hand with God under the great sky. They lived in sunkissed tents amid the lowing herds. They took their simple wants from the loving hand of Nature. They toiled and talked and thought; and the great earth rolled around in stillness, not yet laden with trouble and wrong. Those days are past now. The quiet childhood of Humanity, spent in the far-off forest glades and by the murmuring rivers, is gone forever; and human life is deepening down to manhood amid tumult, doubt, and hope. Its age of restful peace is past. It has its work to finish and must hasten on. What that work may be - what this world's share is in the great design - we know not, though our unconscious hands are helping to accomplish it. Like the tiny coral insect working deep under the dark waters, we strive and struggle each for our own little ends, nor dream of the vast fabric we are building up for God. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Trouble quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#119. Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of its trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse for impossibility, for it thinks all things are lawful for itself and all things are possible #Quote by Thomas A Kempis

Trouble quotes by Roald Dahl
#122. One of the vital things for a writer who's writing a book, which is a lengthy project and is going to take about a year, is how to keep the momentum going. It is the same with a young person writing an essay. They have got to write four or five or six pages. But when you are writing it for a year, you go away and you have to come back. I never come back to a blank page; I always finish about halfway through. To be confronted with a blank page is not very nice. But Hemingway, a great American writer, taught me the finest trick when you are doing a long book, which is, he simply said in his own words, "When you are going good, stop writing." And that means that if everything's going well and you know exactly where the end of the chapter's going to go and you know just what the people are going to do, you don't go on writing and writing until you come to the end of it, because when you do, then you say, well, where am I going to go next? And you get up and you walk away and you don't want to come back because you don't know where you want to go. But if you stop when you are going good, as Hemingway said…then you know what you are going to say next. You make yourself stop, put your pencil down and everything, and you walk away. And you can't wait to get back because you know what you want to say next and that's lovely and you have to try and do that. Every time, every day all the way through the year. If you stop when you are stuck, then you are in trouble! #Quote by Roald Dahl
Trouble quotes by Pope Francis
#123. Indifference to our neighbor and to God also represents a real temptation for us Christians. Each year during Lent we need to hear once more the voice of the prophets who cry out and trouble our conscience. #Quote by Pope Francis

Trouble quotes by Paul Watzlawick
#129. The trouble is that everybody, myself included, has a brain in which the centers concerned with reason and logic are sitting on top of the socalled limbic system which we inherited from our reptilian ancestors and which never evolved past crude instincts and emotions. And that is why we have not yet arrived at the sate of homo sapiens. #Quote by Paul Watzlawick
Trouble quotes by Ian McEwan
#130. He doesn't trouble himself with closing the shutter - total darkness, sense deprivation, might activate his thoughts. Better to stare at something and hope to feel his eyelids grow heavy. Already, his tiredness seems fragile or unreliable, like a pain that comes and goes. He needs to nurture it, and to avoid thoughts at all costs. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Trouble quotes by Anonymous
#131. The trouble is that we live far from ourselves and have but little wish to get any nearer to ourselves. Indeed we are running away all the time to avoid coming face to face with our real selves, and we barter the truth for trifles. #Quote by Anonymous

Trouble quotes by M. Scott Peck
#133. Yet the opposite style of leadership, which the guilt-ridden neurotic so often exerts over his feelings, is equally self-destructive. In this style the slave-owner is so obsessed with the fear that his slaves (feelings) might get out of control and so determined that they should cause him no trouble that he routinely beats them into submission and punishes them severely at the #Quote by M.

The wicked conceive evil; they are pregnant with trouble and give birth to lies. 15 They dig a deep pit to trap others, then fall into it themselves. 16 The trouble they make for others backfires on them. The violence they plan falls on their own heads. 17 I will thank the LORD because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High. #Quote by Anonymous
Trouble quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#136. You know, all this is speculating. I don't think any of us really know what's going on. I think there's always that pendulum action in American politics, and I expect Nixon to run into trouble in the next few years. I think there's going to be disillusionment over his war settlement. I think the economic problems are not going to get better and the problems in the great cities are going to worsen, and it may be that by '76 somebody can come along and win on a kind of platform that I was running on in '72. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson

The challenge for me, and for Asian models in general has been convincing editors, stylists and photographers that we can have mass appeal, but Asian, especially Chinese models have become a stronger presence.

Trouble quotes by Howard Warren Buffett

It's worth a dollar today. And I think once you start putting phony figures into financial statements, you get in a lot of trouble. #Quote by Howard Warren Buffett

Trouble quotes by Albert Camus
#150. He said firmly, "God can help you. All the men I've seen in your position turned to Him in their time of trouble." "Obviously," I replied, "they were at liberty to do so, if they felt like it." I, however, didn't want to be helped, and I hadn't time to work up interest for something that didn't interest me. #Quote by Albert Camus
Trouble quotes by Tulku Thondup
#151. It can be helpful to remember that the enlightened mind and the ordinary mind are two sides of the same coin. The mind is like the sea, which can be rough on the surface, with mountainous waves stirred up by ferocious wind, but calm and peaceful at the bottom. Sometimes we can catch sight of this peaceful mind even in times of trouble. These glimpses of peace show us that we may have more inner resources to draw upon than we had realized. With skill and patience, we can learn how to be in touch with our peaceful selves. #Quote by Tulku Thondup

Trouble quotes by Joanna  Campbell
#158. The Bad-Moon Girls appear on days when Dad doesn't know what he is thinking, or even if he is thinking. Those days can weigh less than air or more than an ocean. He has blank thoughts without feelings, followed by heavy feelings without thoughts. Time means nothing. A minute ticks by in the same rhythm as an entire day. He can look at one thing for an hour without moving. He can see me or Victor without knowing we are in the room, peering at us as if we are underwater, moving in warped slow motion.

After the nothingness, he wades through a stagnant lake with the moon reflected in it, waiting for the daylight to rinse it away. He almost drowns while time ticks on. The sky is filled with black milk. No stars. Two days can pass before he surfaces.

Dad's brain-switch, the focusing thing the rest of us switch on to make things look better, is a bit buggered. Those are his words, not mine.

The Bad-Moon Girls whisper evil in Dad's ear, the sort of women who would set their own mother on fire if there were no other way to light their cigarettes. The trouble is, they can follow. Just as we were setting off to Clacton last autumn, they hunted him down. #Quote by Joanna Campbell

Trouble quotes by Terry Pratchett
#165. And that had led to all the trouble with How to Dynamically Manage People for Dynamic Results in a Caring Empowering Way in Quite a Short Time Dynamically. Ponder didn't know when this book would be written, or even in which world it might be published, but it was obviously going to be popular because random trawls in the depths of L-space often turned up fragments. Perhaps it wasn't even just one book.

And the fragments had been on Ponder's desk when Ridcully had been poking around.

Unfortunately, like many people who are instinctively bad at something, the Archchancellor prided himself on how good at it he was. Ridcully was to management what King Herod was to the Bethlehem Playgroup Association.

His mental approach to it could be visualized as a sort of business flowchart with, at the top, a circle entitled "Me, who does the telling" and, connected below it by a line, a large circle entitled "Everyone else."

Until now this had worked quite well, because, although Ridcully was an impossible manager, the University was impossible to manage and so everything worked seamlessly.

And it would have continued to do so if he hadn't suddenly started to see the point in preparing career development packages and, worst of all, job descriptions. #Quote by Terry Pratchett

Trouble quotes by C.S. Lewis
#175. The second glimpse came through Squirrel Nutkin; through it only, though I loved all the Beatrix Potter books. But the rest of them were merely entertaining; it administered the shock, it was a trouble. It troubled me with what I can only describe as the Idea of Autumn. It sounds fantastic to say that one can be enamored of a season, but that is something like what happened; and, as before, the experience was one of intense desire. And one went back to the book, not to gratify the desire (that was impossible - how can one possess Autumn?) but to reawake it. And in this experience also there was the same surprise and the same sense of incalculable importance. It was something quite different from ordinary life and even from ordinary pleasure; something, as they would now say, "in another dimension." The #Quote by C.S. Lewis

I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary troubles. #Quote by Don Herold
Trouble quotes by Anneli Rufus
#179. Our never-ending dread has little bearing on the outside world. That is, unless and until it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Enter enough relationships already certain you will make them fail and you will make some fail. Predict you will drive everyone away and some will be driven away. Inertia. Reticence. Shuffling with heads hung low, avoiding eye contact, always apologizing, seeking reassurance but no amount is ever enough. To others, these habits of ours are exhausting and boring. Life with us is lots of work, Loving those who hate themselves is like swimming upstream: often more trouble than it is worth. #Quote by Anneli Rufus

Trouble quotes by Debra Dunbar
#190. Do I look like I'm compelled to do anything? Do I seriously look like anyone could compel me to even bring them a coaster?"
She looked me over again. "You look like you're compelled to cause trouble, but I doubt that's the boss' directive. #Quote by Debra Dunbar
Trouble quotes by Ryan Holiday
#191. You cannot have your news instantly and have it done well. You cannot have your news reduced to 140 characters or less without losing large parts of it. You cannot manipulate the news but not expect it to be manipulated against you. You cannot have your news for free; you can only obscure the costs. If as a culture we can learn this lesson, and if we can learn to love the hard work, we will save ourselves much trouble and collateral damage. We must remember: There is no easy way. #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Trouble quotes by Mark Twain
#192. Wherefore, I beseech you let the dog and the onions and these people of the strange and godless names work out their several salvations from their piteous and wonderful difficulties without help of mine, for indeed their trouble is sufficient as it is, whereas an I tried to help I should but damage their cause the more and yet mayhap not live myself to see the desolation wrought. #Quote by Mark Twain
Trouble quotes by Charles De Lint
#193. The real trouble comes from not knowing what we really want in the first place. #Quote by Charles De Lint
Trouble quotes by Oscar Wilde
#194. If there was less sympathy in the world, there would be less trouble in the world. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Trouble quotes by George Lopez
#195. I've gotten in trouble with every race you can imagine. #Quote by George Lopez
Trouble quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#196. It is always in the midst, in the epicenter, of your troubles that you find serenity. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Trouble quotes by Austin Kleon
#197. The trouble with creative work: Sometimes by the time people catch on to what's valuable about what you do, you're either a) bored to death with it, or b) dead. You can't go looking for validation from external sources. Once you put your work into the world, you have no control over the way people will react to it. #Quote by Austin Kleon
Trouble quotes by Seneca The Younger
#198. We deliberate about the parcels of life, but not about life itself, and so we arrive all unawares at its different epochs, and have the trouble of beginning all again. And so finally it is that we do not walk as men confidently towards death, but let death come suddenly upon us. #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Trouble quotes by Catherine Drinker Bowen
#199. Writers seldom choose as friends those self-centered characters who are never in trouble, never make mistakes, and always count their change as it is handed to them. #Quote by Catherine Drinker Bowen
Trouble quotes by Sue Wyshynski
#200. I gulped. But, I mean, everyone bends the truth sometimes to be friendly. What's really weird is that I'm the only one who seems to get in trouble for it. Anyway, what could possibly go wrong this time? #Quote by Sue Wyshynski
