Ugly quotes by Megan Fox
#1. Well, I'm clearly not ugly. #Quote by Megan Fox
Ugly quotes by James Howe
#2. Why, if I were to believe what everyone says about me, I would think myself quite, quite ugly. But I don't believe everyone, you see ... I believe you because you are my friend. You think I'm beautiful, and so I am.
- The Old One #Quote by James Howe
Ugly quotes by Suzy Kassem
#3. The human ego is the ugliest part of man. We lift up men who only show us darkness, and put down those brave enough to show us the light. Likewise, people engage in darkness when it is light outside, and acknowledge the light only when it is dark. We abandon those fighting for us to cheer behind those fighting against us. And, we only remember good people and God when it is convenient for us, and take them for granted because their doors are always open - only to chase after closed doors and personalities void of substance and truth. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Ugly quotes by Rick Riordan
#4. We create order out of chaos, beauty and meaning out of ugly randomness. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Ugly quotes by David Levithan
#5. Just be warned", you said. "Some day you will ask me to give up something I really love, and then it`s going to get ugly. #Quote by David Levithan
Ugly quotes by Naomi Shihab Nye
#6. Valentine for Ernest Mann"

You can't order a poem like you order a taco.
Walk up to the counter, say, "I'll take two"
and expect it to be handed back to you
on a shiny plate.

Still, I like your spirit.
Anyone who says, "Here's my address,
write me a poem," deserves something in reply.
So I'll tell a secret instead:
poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes,
they are sleeping. They are the shadows
drifting across our ceilings the moment
before we wake up. What we have to do
is live in a way that lets us find them.

Once I knew a man who gave his wife
two skunks for a valentine.
He couldn't understand why she was crying.
"I thought they had such beautiful eyes."
And he was serious. He was a serious man
who lived in a serious way. Nothing was ugly
just because the world said so. He really
liked those skunks. So, he re-invented them
as valentines and they became beautiful.
At least, to him. And the poems that had been hiding
in the eyes of skunks for centuries
crawled out and curled up at his feet.

Maybe if we re-invent whatever our lives give us
we find poems. Check your garage, the off sock
in your drawer, the person you almost like, but not quite. #Quote by Naomi Shihab Nye
Ugly quotes by Mav Skye
#7. He's a pig," whispers May, her frail body wavering in the firelight. "An ugly pink pig. And I think the pig needs to be butchered. #Quote by Mav Skye
Ugly quotes by Scott Westerfeld
#8. The very idea of making shoes by hand boggled her mind. #Quote by Scott Westerfeld
Ugly quotes by Baron Baptiste
#9. I see a real yogi as a someone who is committed to growth and to being the best version of themselves, and, at the same time, is courageous enough to be fully present and authentic in each moment. Someone who is not afraid to get real about the whole mess of who they are - the good, the bad, and the ugly #Quote by Baron Baptiste
Ugly quotes by RM Vaughan
#10. I can't be the only insomniac who has looked out his living room window and thought, "Why don't we all get together? We're awake. We could swap sleep recipes, console each other, plot terrible crimes." But it won't happen, any gathering of the near-dead, because the only thing more abhorrent to a restless mind in the ugly hours than the actual harshness of the ugly hours is the thought of having to listen to somebody else. Somebody else in distress, also angry at the comfortable world. #Quote by RM Vaughan
Ugly quotes by John Spence
#11. Saying someone is ugly doesn't make you any prettier. #Quote by John Spence
Ugly quotes by Tim Sanders
#12. Without a rich heart, wealth is an ugly beggar. #Quote by Tim Sanders
Ugly quotes by Gavin Hood
#13. And for the people who promote drones as the answer to everything, there is a danger from being distanced from the reality of the ugly mess of war. #Quote by Gavin Hood
Ugly quotes by Nick Hornby
#14. Definitely avoid going out with ugly girls who say they want to be models. Not because they're ugly, but because they're mad. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Ugly quotes by Liane Moriarty
#15. She would never again lie in bed on a Good Friday morning and relax in the blissful knowledge that there was nothing to do and nowhere to be, because for the rest of her life, there would always, always be something left undone. An unmade confession. An ugly secret. #Quote by Liane Moriarty
Ugly quotes by E.A. Bucchianeri
#16. (The Mona Lisa), that really is the ugliest portrait I've seen, the only thing that supposedly makes it famous is the mystery behind it, Katherine admitted as she remembered her trips to the Louvre and how she shook her head at the poor tourists crowding around to see a jaundiced, eyebrow-less lady that reminded her of tight-lipped Washington on the dollar bill. Surely, they could have chosen a better portrait of the First President for their currency? #Quote by E.A. Bucchianeri
Ugly quotes by Victoria Justice
#17. I don't think I ever wore anything that was like really ugly, I just didn't really care. #Quote by Victoria Justice
Ugly quotes by Francine Pascal
#18. Pretty people do ugly things.
It was one of those laws of nature that Gaia had understood for years. If she ever started to forget that ride for a second, there always seemed to be some good-looking asshole ready to remind her. #Quote by Francine Pascal
Ugly quotes by S.J.D. Peterson
#19. He didn't deserve someone like Lorcan. He'd turned Lorcan's pure and wonderful feelings into something ugly, something to be ashamed of. He stepped into his room, shutting the door quietly behind him, sitting on the edge of the bed with his head in his hands as he listened to Lorcan move around his room. He did something he hadn't allowed himself since his daddy had passed. He cried - for his loss, for what could have been ... but mostly, he cried in shame. #Quote by S.J.D. Peterson
Ugly quotes by Reni Eddo-Lodge
#20. To believe in emasculation, you have to believe that masculinity is about power, and strength, and dominance. These traits are supposed to be great in men, but they're very unattractive in women. Especially angry black ones. Women in general aren't supposed to be angry. Women are expected to smile, swallow our feelings and be self-sacrificial. Bossy is ugly, and of course, the worst thing a woman could ever be is ugly. As black women, our blackness already situates us further along the ugliness scale. God forbid we be fat. #Quote by Reni Eddo-Lodge
Ugly quotes by John Sentamu
#21. As the week's events on reality television demonstrate, there is an ugly underbelly in society only too ready to point the finger at the foreigner, or those who might not fit in. [on celeb big brother #Quote by John Sentamu
Ugly quotes by Bernie Sanders
#22. I don't want to see kids in America being scared because they're hearing people on television and the radio saying really ugly xenophobic and racist things. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Ugly quotes by Jay Leno
#23. Politics is just show business for ugly people. #Quote by Jay Leno
Ugly quotes by Langston Hughes
#24. We younger Negro artists who create now intend to express our individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame. If white people are pleased, we are glad. If they are not, it doesn't matter. We know we are beautiful. And ugly too. #Quote by Langston Hughes
Ugly quotes by Philippa Gregory
#25. I have heard ballads of great battles, and poems about the beauty of a charge and the grace of a leader. But I did not know that war was nothing more than butchery, as savage and unskilled as sticking a pig in the throat and leaving it to bleed to make the meat tender. I did not know that the style and nobility of the jousting arena had nothing to do with this thrust and stab. Just like killing a screaming piglet for bacon after chasing it round the sty. And I did not know that war thrilled men so: they come home laughing like schoolboys after a prank; but they have blood on their hands and a smear of something on their cloaks and the smell of smoke in their hair and a terrible ugly excitement on their faces.

I understand now why they break into convents, force women against their will, defy sanctuary to finish the killing chase. They arouse in themselves a wild vicious hunger more like animals than men. I did not know war was like this. I feel I have been a fool not to know, since I was raised in a kingdom at war and am the daughter of a man captured in battle, the widow of a night, the wife of a merciless solider. But I know now. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Ugly quotes by Alfred Jarry
#26. You're looking exceptionally ugly tonight, Madam, is it because we have company? #Quote by Alfred Jarry
Ugly quotes by Miles Franklin
#27. It came home to me as a great blow that it was only men who could take the world by its ears and conquer their fate, while women, metaphorically speaking, were forced to sit with tied hands and patiently suffer as the waves of fate tossed them hither and thither, battering and bruising without mercy. Familiarity made me used to this yoke; I recovered from the disappointment of being a girl, and was reconciled to that part of my fate. In fact, I found that being a girl was quite pleasant, until a hideous truth dawned upon me--I was ugly! ... In conjunction with this brand of hell I developed a reputation of cleverness. Worse and worse! Girls! girls! Those of you who have hearts, and therefore a wish for happiness, homes, and husbands by and by, never develop a reputation of being clever. It will put you out of the matrimonial running as effectually as though it had been circulated that you had leprosy. So, if you feel that you are afflicted with more than ordinary intelligence, and especially if you are plain with it, hide your brains, cramp your mind, study to appear unintellectual--it is your only chance. Provided a woman is beautiful, allowance will be made for all her shortcomings. She can be unchaste, vapid, untruthful, flippant, heartless, and even clever; so long as she is fair to see, men will stand by her, and as men in this world are "the dog on top," they are the power to truckle to. A plain woman will have nothing forgiven her. #Quote by Miles Franklin
Ugly quotes by Eli Wallach
#28. If you work for a living, why do you kill yourself working? #Quote by Eli Wallach
Ugly quotes by Cassandra Clare
#29. I didn't know that was how you had been scarred," he said. She looked away .
"Now you will say that it is not so ugly or that you do not even see it, or something like that."
"I see it," Gideon said in a low voice. "I am not blind, and we are a people of many scars. I see it, but it is not ugly. It is just another beautiful part of the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Ugly quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#30. A long-time associate, Beth, who likes to refer to herself as the 'Grill Bitch', excelled at putting loudmouths and fools into their proper place. She refused to behave any differently than her male co-workers: she'd change in the same locker area, dropping her pants right alongside them. She was as sexually aggressive, and as vocal about it, as her fellow cooks, but unlikely to suffer behavior she found demeaning. One sorry Moroccan cook who pinched her ass found himself suddenly bent over a cutting board with Beth dry-humping him from behind, saying, 'How do you like it, bitch?' The guy almost died of shame - and never repeated that mistake again.
Another female line cook I had the pleasure of working with arrived at work one morning to find that an Ecuadorian pasta cook had decorated her station with some particularly ugly hard-core pornography of pimply-assed women getting penetrated in every orifice by pot-bellied guys with prison tattoos and back hair. She didn't react at all, but a little later, while passing through the pasta man's station, casually remarked. 'Jose, I see you brought in some photos of the family. Mom looks good for her age. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Ugly quotes by Gerard Way
#31. Don't ever let the media tell you what your body is supposed look like. You're beautiful the way you are. Stay beautiful, keep it ugly. #Quote by Gerard Way
Ugly quotes by Barack Obama
#32. I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. #Quote by Barack Obama
Ugly quotes by David Lipsky
#33. David Foster Wallace: I think the reason why people behave in an ugly manner is that it's really scary to be alive and to be human, and people are really really afraid. And that the reasons…

That the fear is the basic condition, and there are all kinds of reasons for why we're so afraid. But the fact of the matter is, is that, is that the job that we're here to do is to learn how to live in a way that we're not terrified all the time. And not in a position of using all kinds of different things, and using people to keep that kind of terror at bay. That is my personal opinion.

Well for me, as an American male, the face I'd put on the terror is the dawning realization that nothing's enough, you know? That no pleasure is enough, that no achievement is enough. That there's a kind of queer dissatisfaction or emptiness at the core of the self that is unassuageable by outside stuff. And my guess is that that's been what's going on, ever since people were hitting each other over the head with clubs. Though describable in a number of different words and cultural argots. And that our particular challenge is that there's never been more and better stuff comin' from the outside, that seems temporarily to sort of fill the hole or drown out the hole.

Personally, I believe that if it's assuageable in any way it's by internal means. And I don't know what that means. I think it's fine in some way. I think it's probably assuageable by internal means. I think th #Quote by David Lipsky
Ugly quotes by Tom Robbins
#34. For all the ugly vices that capitalism encourages, it's at least interesting, exciting, it offers possiblities. In America, the struggle is at least an individual struggle. And if the individual has strength enough of character, salt enough of wit, the alternatives are thicker than polyesters in a car salesman's closet. In a socialistic system, you're no better or no worse than anybody else.'
But that's equality!'
Bullshit. Unromantic, unattractive bullshit. Equality is not in regarding different things similarly, equality is in regarding different things differently. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Ugly quotes by Jeff Kinney
#35. I can tell you that the book 'The Ugly Truth' is about puberty and all the awfulness that comes with that time in a person's life. It was definitely some different subject matter to be writing about, especially knowing some of my audience are second and third graders. #Quote by Jeff Kinney
Ugly quotes by Markus Zusak
#36. The consequence of this is that I'm always finding humans at their best and worst. I see their ugly and their beauty, and I wonder how the same thing can be both. (Death) #Quote by Markus Zusak
Ugly quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#37. Pretty girls don't have ugly mouths. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Ugly quotes by Jaggi Vasudev
#38. Devotion as an act is vulgar. Devotion as a way of life is wonderful. If you are a great devotee, it is ugly. If you are devout, it is beautiful. #Quote by Jaggi Vasudev
Ugly quotes by Matthew Norman
#39. She rarely lets me off the hook, holding me to a different standard of emotional intelligence than the other men in her life - even my Brothers. She allows them to behave like Gary, docilely going about their lives, content and happy and completely oblivious to the sticky, ugly things just a few inches below the surface of everything. #Quote by Matthew Norman
Ugly quotes by Elizabeth Goudge
#40. But tonight he remembered only the warm rooms and the faces of men and women bent over their bowls of steaming soup, and the children already asleep in their beds. He felt for them all a profound love, and he glowed. The moment of his loving was in the world of time merely sixty seconds ticked out by his watch, but in another dimension it was an arc of light encircling the city and leaving not one heart within it untouched by blessedness. Then the clocks began to strike, and the light of the ugly little man's moment of self-forgetfulness was drawn back again into the deep warmth within him. And he understood nothing of what had happened to him, only that now, for a little while, for a few moments or a few days, he would be happy and feel safe. #Quote by Elizabeth Goudge
Ugly quotes by Direct Hits
#41. Winston Churchill was famous for his SARCASTIC and SARDONIC comments. Here are two well-known examples: Bessie Braddock: Sir, you are a drunk. Churchill: Madame, you are ugly. In the morning I shall be sober, and you will still be ugly. Nancy Astor: Sir, if you were my husband, I would give you poison. Churchill: If I were your husband, I would take it. #Quote by Direct Hits
Ugly quotes by Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
#42. Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly lies to the bone. Beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own! Create and cultivate Inner Beauty that never fades away but grows and matures with Time! #Quote by Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
Ugly quotes by L.A. Gilbert
#43. Oh man, Alex. That's sad. Seriously, mate, go get yourself laid."
"What?" He gave Baldrick a quick kiss on his little head
he didn't care how stupid he looked, he loved his ugly cat
and put him down on his kitty bed in the corner.
"Isn't that what single sad people do
get cats when they've given up on human companionship? #Quote by L.A. Gilbert
Ugly quotes by Raheel Farooq
#44. Ugly truths are the biggest source of indigestion in humans. #Quote by Raheel Farooq
Ugly quotes by Merritt Tierce
#45. Someone told me - maybe it was the ugly one, unafraid to bash his own kind - that spine surgeons are weak among surgeons, that you can't really fix a back so you go in there and fuck around and bill the shit out of the insurance company and refer the patient to pain management. #Quote by Merritt Tierce
Ugly quotes by Bram Stoker
#46. Friend John, to you with so much experience already, and you too, dear Madam Mina, that are young, here is a lesson. Do not fear ever to think. A half thought has been buzzing often in my brain, but I fear to let him loose his wings. Here now, with more knowledge, I go back to where that half thought come from and I find that he be no half thought at all. That be a whole thought, though so young that he is not yet strong to use his little wings. Nay, like the 'Ugly Duck' of my friend Hans Andersen, he be no duck thought at all, but a big swan thought that sail nobly on big wings, when the time come for him to try them. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Ugly quotes by Winston Churchill
#47. Bessie Braddock: "Winston, you're drunk. Churchill: "Bessie, you're ugly. But tomorrow I shall be sober. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Ugly quotes by Louise Jensen
#48. The world is so beautiful. It's the people that make it ugly, and I want to curl in a ball and howl with the unfairness of it all. #Quote by Louise Jensen
Ugly quotes by Anne Stuart
#49. I would have to ask her, just to make certain I'd done everything I could. But I'd warn her. I have no money, no prospects, an exceedingly ugly face, and my dearest friend is the King of Hell."
"You think that would stop her?"
"I have no idea. Would it, Lydia?"
"Nothing would stop her, if she loved you. And she does, Charles. She loves your pretty face and you scarred face. She loves your past and your present and she most especially loves your future. Just ask."
"Marry me, Lydia. #Quote by Anne Stuart
Ugly quotes by Martin Luther King Jr.
#50. We need a powerful sense of determination to banish the ugly blemish of racism scarring the image of America. We can, of course, try to temporize, negotiate small, inadequate changes and prolong the timetable of freedom in the hope that the narcotics of delay will dull the pain of progress. We can try, but we shall certainly fail. The shape of the world will not permit us the luxury of gradualism and procrastination. Not only is it immoral, it will not work... it will not work because it retards the progress not only of the Negro, but of the nation as a whole. #Quote by Martin Luther King Jr.
Ugly quotes by A Meredith Walters
#51. You're right, baby. We began out of something ugly. But what we became was something beautiful. I just wish I could make you see that. #Quote by A Meredith Walters
Ugly quotes by James Houston Turner
#52. I will not be defined by the marks left on me by the world, but by the mark I leave on the world (referring to the facial scars he still carries from his successful 1991 battle against cancer, which caused him to be turned down for a customer service job because he was "too ugly"). #Quote by James Houston Turner
Ugly quotes by Cassandra Clare
#53. Those girls on the other side of the car are staring at you."
Jace assumed an air of mellow gratification. "Of course they are," he said. "I am stunningly attractive."
"Haven't you ever heard that modesty is an attractive trait?"
"Only from ugly people," Jace confided. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Ugly quotes by Bill Buford
#54. When I was at Babbo, I was covered in scars and scabs and burned bits - melted hair, ribbed burns I got reaching across the top of a hot skillet ... I sliced off the tip of my finger. I cleaved my forehead - a deep, ugly wound. Luckily, it regenerated. #Quote by Bill Buford
Ugly quotes by Maxine Hong Kingston
#55. I may be ugly and clumsy, but one thing I'm not, I'm not retarded. #Quote by Maxine Hong Kingston
Ugly quotes by Chanda Hahn
#56. Fae can't lie, you know. But they can, and do, manipulate the truth." "What's the difference?" Mina asked. "Like, if you asked me if you were ugly, I couldn't say yes, but I might tell you that you'll probably never be prom queen." "Pfft. Like I'd want to be." "Only if Brody Carmichael were king." Mina threw a stick at him, feeling the heat rush into her face. #Quote by Chanda Hahn
Ugly quotes by Clive Barker
#57. Your kind has a supersitious terror of things ugly and broken; you gear that their conditon may somehow infect you. #Quote by Clive Barker
Ugly quotes by David Foster Wallace
#58. This story ["The Depressed Person"] was the most painful thing I ever wrote. It's about narcissism, which is a part of depression. The character has traits of myself. I really lost friends while writing on that story, I became ugly and unhappy and just yelled at people. The cruel thing with depression is that it's such a self-centered illness - Dostoevsky shows that pretty good in his "Notes from Underground". The depression is painful, you're sapped/consumed by yourself; the worse the depression, the more you just think about yourself and the stranger and repellent you appear to others. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Ugly quotes by Cassandra Clare
#59. Beauty was hard. Would people forgive Will the things he did if he were ugly? And did it help him, in the end, to be forgiven? Though, she could not help but feel he did the things he did not because he loved himself too much but because he hated himself. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Ugly quotes by Shelby Reed
#60. His voice grew more remote. She wondered if he was calling from his condominium, where he'd lost his best friend, or from Avalon, where he'd lost himself. "I like you, Billie. You're a nice person. Good company. But tonight was a mistake."
She flung an arm over her eyes and swallowed the lump of tears that had lodged in her throat. "Oh? Which part? The part where you introduced me to your family and exposed yourself as coming from a perfectly average, wholesome background? Or the part where you touched me and turned me inside-out while swaying in a hammock in the rich, beautiful woods - one of the most searing sexual experiences of my life? Which part do you regret, Adrian?"
"All of it. I can't have those things with you. You know what I am."
"Yes, Adrian, I know what you are. A gentle man. A likable one. Smart. Cultured. Sexy. I know what you are."
"But the other part - "
"What about the other part? You hide behind the other part." She yanked the pillow out from beneath her head and winged it across the bedroom, furious suddenly. "Did you call to tell me I'm not going to see you anymore? Because if that's the case, hurry up and say it. Then hang up and go back to work, and don't worry one bit about me. I've been on my own a long time, and I'm tougher than you think. I won't cling to any man who'd rather be a-a - " She stumbled, bit back the ugly words rushing to her lips.
"A what?" he countered softly. "A whore? A gigolo? Go ahead and say #Quote by Shelby Reed
Ugly quotes by Cassie Mae
#61. I know you're pissed, and you have every right to be, I get it. And it's an ugly thing you threw at my face, but still ... I thought, maybe, if you had it, you'd know I'm still here for you, even if you don't want me to be. #Quote by Cassie Mae
Ugly quotes by Chelsea Bieker
#62. I decided then to tell Artichoke to be ugly. To make herself as ugly as possible and not worry too much about beauty or what anyone thought of her. To be unpainted, to live in the breeze and stand under waterfalls and not be worried over the height of mountains, of quiet trails deep in the woods. To not be scared of roads slick with rain, of valleys dry in drought. I'd tell her 'no fear' and she'd know it was the deepest truth and she would be everything I was not. She would be wild and free. And I wouldn't worry because I knew the secret. That through all of her ugliness, all her hiking and running and jumping and falling and getting back up and saying no and saying what she wanted, her scraped hands, her freckled skin, her smart brain, she would of course be beautiful. #Quote by Chelsea Bieker
Ugly quotes by Barry Hughart
#63. I shall clasp my hands together and bow to the corners of the world.
May your villages remain ignorant of tax collectors, and may your sons be many and ugly and strong and willing workers, and may your daughters be few and beautiful and excellent providers of love gifts from eminent families that live very far away, and may your lives be blessed by the beauty that has touched mine.
Farewell. #Quote by Barry Hughart
Ugly quotes by Tom Robbins
#64. Morels are ugly in the skillet. The caps look like the scrotums of leprechauns, the stems like the tusks of fetal elephants. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Ugly quotes by Bill Hader
#65. I was in a sketch group in L.A., and we were playing, like, backyards in Glendale and stuff. It was pretty ugly because we didn't have any money. #Quote by Bill Hader
Ugly quotes by John Steinbeck
#66. There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you - of kindness and consideration and respect - not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn't know you had.
John Steinbeck in Steinbeck: A Life in Letters #Quote by John Steinbeck

Ugly quotes by Emily Bronte
#68. A good heart will help you to a bonny face, my lad and a bad one will turn the bonniest into something worse than ugly. #Quote by Emily Bronte
Ugly quotes by Lloyd D. Newell
#69. There are two ways to look at life and the world. We can see the good or the bad, the beautiful or the ugly. Both are there, and what we focus on and choose to see is what brings us feelings of joy or feelings of despair. #Quote by Lloyd D. Newell
Ugly quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
#70. Thus we see, too, in the world that some persons assimilate only what is ugly and evil from the same moral circumstances which supply good and beautiful results
the fragrance of celestial flowers
to the daily life of others. #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Ugly quotes by Ryan Gander
#71. Sometimes buying the ugly work is the thing that you know you should do. #Quote by Ryan Gander
Ugly quotes by Piper Vaughn
#72. I don't care who knows, babe. It sucks not being able to be near you like I want to just 'cause Dre or Nicky might be watching. You hafta know I wanna kiss you, like, all the damn time."
"Why?" Jesse wasn't fishing for compliments. He really didn't understand.
"You actually mean that?"
Jesse nodded his head miserably. Shane lifted his chin. "Because you're smart, and funny, and I can't even hear a single note you sing without getting all turned on…and, well, because I'm falling for you. Like, hard." Shane's forehead wrinkled, his eyes went puppy-dog droopy. "Don't you feel the same way about me?"
Shane's sudden insecurity was sweet and sad and so very endearing. "Of course I do. But you're Shane. I'm just…" A nerd. Ugly, squishy, pale, and too damn blind to get rid of these dumb ass glasses.
"There is no 'just' anything. Jess, you're my boyfriend. Right? #Quote by Piper Vaughn
Ugly quotes by Hans F. Sennholz
#73. We are ever aware that politics is an ugly struggle that determines 'who gets what, when, and how.' It is the favorite occupation of people who serve special interests, who have axes to grind, and public careers to advance. It is a game in which benefits are bestowed according to political skill and connection, rather than merit. #Quote by Hans F. Sennholz
Ugly quotes by Jan Karon
#74. I have never seen so many ugly dresses. I cannot find this dress, which was woven out of daydreams and naiveté. #Quote by Jan Karon
Ugly quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#75. So when she was a sickly, fretful, ugly little baby she was kept out of the way, and when she became a sickly, fretful, toddling thing she was kept out of the way also. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Ugly quotes by Amy Sumida
#76. In real life, Snow White stays dead and Rapunzel grows old, alone in her tower. In real life, you gotta have enough sense to stay away from ugly bitches offering you shiny apples and have enough balls to cut off your own hair and use it as a ladder if needs be. In real life, you gotta save yourself and the only happy endings are the ones paid for in massage parlors. #Quote by Amy Sumida
Ugly quotes by Elie Wiesel
#77. Never again becomes more than a slogan: It's a prayer, a promise, a vow. There will never again be hatred, people say. Never again jail and torture. Never again the suffering of innocent people, or the shooting of starving, frightened, terrified children. And never again the glorification of base, ugly, dark violence. It's a prayer. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Ugly quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#78. No matter how ugly the manner in which a man dies, it's only the presence of a suffering human soul that is horrifying, once gone, what is left is only an object. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Ugly quotes by Arthur Gordon
#79. Words. Just little black marks on paper. Just sounds in the empty air. But think of the power they have! They can make you laugh or cry, love or hate, fight or run away. They can heal or hurt. They even come to look and sound like what they mean. Angry looks angry on the page. Ugly sounds ugly when you say it. #Quote by Arthur Gordon
Ugly quotes by Henri Nouwen
#80. I can choose to grateful when I am criticized, even when my heart still responds in bitterness. I can choose to speak about goodness and beauty, even when my inner eye still looks for someone to accuse or something to call ugly. #Quote by Henri Nouwen
Ugly quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
#81. There are two kinds of beauty, one being of the soul and the other of the body,
That of the soul is revealed through intelligence, modesty, right conduct,
Generosity and good breeding, all of which qualities may exist in an ugly man;
And when one's gaze is fixed upon beauty of this sort and not upon that of the body,
Love is usually born suddenly and violently. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
Ugly quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
#82. I had gazed on him while unfinished; he was ugly then; but when those muscles and joints were rendered capable of motion, it became a thing such as even Dante could not have conceived. I #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Ugly quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#83. Female knowledge of objectification usually stops at a necessary but superficial understanding: beauty is rewarded and lack of beauty is punished. The punishments are understood as personal misfortune; they are not seem as systematic, institutional, or historical. Women do not understand that they are also punished through sexual use for being beautiful; and women do not understand the lengths to which men go to protect themselves and their society from contamination by ugly women who do not induce a lustful desire to punish, violate, or destroy, though men manage to punish, violate, or destroy these women anyway. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Ugly quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#84. For the first time I was beginning to discern a God whom I actually wanted to live for. I was beginning to discover the motivation of Paul when he proclaimed, "Christ's love compels us" (2 Cor. 5: 14). All my life I'd tried to be good to avoid hell, or the ugly-stick flogging, or my stepmother's beatings with a two-by-four. But while most people would undoubtedly be better at behaving well with these frightful motivations than I ever was, no one could ever be transformed by these sorts of motivations. Threatening motivations address behavior, but they can never transform our identity. They motivate people to change as a means of protecting themselves, but for this reason they can never move us beyond ourselves to become someone fundamentally different from who we currently are. And threatening motivations can certainly never transform us into people with an other-oriented, self-sacrificial, loving character. Only a motivation that is anchored in love can do this. #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Ugly quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#85. Beneath beautiful appearances I search out ugly depths, and beneath ignoble surfaces I probe for the hidden mines of devotion and virtue. It's a relatively benign mania, which enables you to see something new in a place where you would not have expected to find it. #Quote by Gustave Flaubert
Ugly quotes by Ron Paul
#86. Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, the mindset that views humans strictly as members of groups rather than individuals. #Quote by Ron Paul
Ugly quotes by Eugene Ionesco
#87. Year after year of dirty snow and bitter winds ... houses and whole districts of people who aren't really unhappy, but worse, who are neither happy nor unhappy; people who are ugly because they're neither ugly nor beautiful; creatures that are dismally neutral, who long without longings as though they're unconscious, unconsciously suffering from being alive. #Quote by Eugene Ionesco
Ugly quotes by Berthold Auerbach
#88. The best and simplest cosmetic for women is constant gentleness and sympathy for the noblest interests of her fellow-creatures. This preserves and gives to her features an indelibly gay, fresh, and agreeable expression. If women would but realize that harshness makes them ugly, it would prove the best means of conversion. #Quote by Berthold Auerbach
Ugly quotes by Coco Chanel
#89. A woman with good shoes i never ugly! #Quote by Coco Chanel
Ugly quotes by Michael Ende
#90. You must let what happens happen. Everything must be equal in your eyes, good and evil, beautiful and ugly, foolish and wise. #Quote by Michael Ende
Ugly quotes by Kerri Maniscalco
#91. Monsters were supposed to be scary and ugly. They weren't supposed to hide behind friendly smiles and well-trimmed hair. Goodness, twisted as it might be, was not meant to be locked away in an icy heart and anxious exterior. #Quote by Kerri Maniscalco
Ugly quotes by Marita A. Hansen
#92. Jenna walked in between desks and plonked herself down behind hers, noticing AGAIN that the teacher hadn't graced the class with his zitty presence. She thought Mr. Kennan needed to get fired, which said a lot, because she rarely paid attention to ugly teachers. She'd discussed this with the principal two weeks back when she'd been sent to his office after getting caught sleeping. She'd told him that if he employed more hot teachers like Mr. Daniels then maybe she wouldn't pass out from boredom. The principal gave her a week's detention because of that comment, saying that she needed to take things more seriously. But she WAS being serious.
Jenna Hamilton from Graffiti Heaven (Chapter 28). #Quote by Marita A. Hansen
Ugly quotes by Toba Beta
#93. The more you know, the less you understand.
That's so cliche'. Wanna know the scary version?
The more you know, the more fuckups you find.
That's what really makes you even less understand. #Quote by Toba Beta
Ugly quotes by Confucius

Ugly quotes by Shannon Delany
#95. Beauty's only skin deep.
Everybody has ugly days.
We're all made of the same stuff underneath.
Acting right is better than looking right.
Realize what make you special beyond looks.
Evil can look pretty on the outside. #Quote by Shannon Delany
Ugly quotes by Brooklyn Ann
#96. Rafe couldn't help wishing that passion was for him as a man, rather than an experiment. If only he weren't so ugly. His gaze dropped to his bad arm, studying the diminished scars where Cassandra had cut him. Could she do something about his face? Would she then find him appealing? His mouth twisted into a scowl of self-loathing at the ridiculous thought. He should be grateful that she had the power to heal his arm. He didn't need affection. He needed power to protect his people and defeat his enemies. He needed his arm back. Yet when he looked at her flushed cheeks and lush lips, Rafe couldn't help but want more. Her beauty must be driving him mad. That was the only logical explanation. The #Quote by Brooklyn Ann

Ugly quotes by Penelope Ward
#101. I'm totally fucking obsessed with you, Rana."
I wanted to tell him that I was beyond the point of obsessed with him. Instead, I tried to snap myself out of the sexual spell his words were putting me under.
"You're obsessed with the idea of me - the mystique. The reality is a mess."
"What reality isn't? A relationship is about appreciating the good, the bad, and the ugly. No one is perfect. #Quote by Penelope Ward
Ugly quotes by J.R. Ward
#102. But isn't it ... ugly?"
"No. Not to me." She pressed a kiss to his chest. "It's fearsome and terrifying and powerful and awe-inspiring. And if anyone ever tried to get at me, that thing would wipe out a neighborhood. How could a girl not be charmed? Besides, after seeing those lessers in action, I'm grateful for it. I feel safe. Between you and the dragon, I don't have to worry."
(Rhage & Mary) #Quote by J.R. Ward
Ugly quotes by Mohamedou Ould Slahi
#103. Whenever I realized that a guard was mean I pretended that I understood no English. I remember one cowboy coming to me with an ugly frown on his face: "You speak English?" he asked. "No English," I replied. "We don't like you to speak English. We want you to die slowly," he said. "No English," I kept replying. I didn't want to give him the satisfaction that his message arrived. People with hatred always have something to get off their chests, but I wasn't ready to be that drain. #Quote by Mohamedou Ould Slahi

Ugly quotes by Mark Carwardine
#105. In every remote corner of the world there are people like Carl Jones and Don Merton who have devoted their lives to saving threatened species. Very often, their determination is all that stands between an endangered species and extinction.
But why do they bother? Does it really matter if the Yangtze river dolphin, or the kakapo, or the northern white rhino, or any other species live on only in scientists' notebooks?
Well, yes, it does. Every animal and plant is an integral part of its environment: even Komodo dragons have a major role to play in maintaining the ecological stability of their delicate island homes. If they disappear, so could many other species. And conservation is very much in tune with our survival. Animals and plants provide us with life-saving drugs and food, they pollinate crops and provide important ingredients or many industrial processes. Ironically, it is often not the big and beautiful creatures, but the ugly and less dramatic ones, that we need most.
Even so, the loss of a few species may seem irrelevant compared to major environmental problems such as global warming or the destruction of the ozone layer. But while nature has considerable resilience, there is a limit to how far that resilience can be stretched. No one knows how close to the limit we are getting. The darker it gets, the faster we're driving.
There is one last reason for caring, and I believe that no other is necessary. It is certainly the reason why so many people #Quote by Mark Carwardine
Ugly quotes by Suzy Kassem
#106. Always praise your kid even if he/she is unresponsive to learning. By insulting them and putting them down, you will only push them away and make them feel inadequate around other kids. Have faith that your child's brain is an evolving planet that rotates at its own speed. It will naturally be attracted to or repel certain subjects. Be patient. Just as there are ugly ducklings that turn into swans, there are rebellious kids that turn into serious innovators and hardcore intellectuals. #Quote by Suzy Kassem

Ugly quotes by Nora Roberts

Cam drew off his sunglasses, and his eyes, smoke-gray, met Seth's. "What the hell's the matter with you that you think you have to ask? You trying to piss me off?"
"I never had to try, nobody does with you. Anyway, I'll pull my weight."
"You always pulled your weight. And we missed seeing your ugly face around here."
And that, Seth thought as they walked to the car, was all the welcome he needed from Cameron Quinn. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Ugly quotes by Vincent Scarpa
#110. And who could you tell about feeling ugly? You could tell no one, not without it seeming like the most desperate kind of bait. You said, Oh, I'm just terribly ugly, and everyone rushed in with their refusals, disallowing such - such what? Honesty? What a hollow and thoughtless gesture it was, to deny someone the acknowledgement of her own mediocrity. #Quote by Vincent Scarpa
Ugly quotes by Tarun J. Tejpal
#111. He learned that almost all of the world lived in colossal and constant fear.Afraid of everything-the police,officials and courts,the thugs,criminals and mafia;afraid of the establishment and the anti-establishment;afraid of failure and of criticism,of being humiliated and being mocked,of being ugly and bald;afraid of cockroaches and of cats,of the seas and the skies,of lightning and of electricity;afraid of priests and physicians;afraid of dying and of living.More than hope,people's life seemed to be defined by fear.Most hope,it seemed,was only about somehow negotiating the fear successfully.A tiny minority managed to cross the line of fear and this tiny minority then became the shapers of the world in which the rest lived. #Quote by Tarun J. Tejpal
Ugly quotes by Hannah Arendt
#112. This inability to think created the possibility for many ordinary men to commit evil deeds on a gigantic scale, the like of which had never been seen before. The manifestation of the wind of thought is not knowledge but the ability to tell right from wrong, beautiful from ugly. And I hope that thinking gives people the strength to prevent catastrophes in these rare moments when the chips are down. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Ugly quotes by Aporva Kala
#113. Comparisons are inevitable, her face resembles her, he is like him and this old man is like that old man. This is taking things too far.All old men and women are alike. Ageing makes no discrimination between the beauty and the ugly. #Quote by Aporva Kala
Ugly quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#114. But I will tell you another misery that is not to be denied. In the common, natural course of events physicians, surgeons and apothecaries are faced with enormous demands for sympathy: they may come into immediate contact with half a dozen deeply distressing cases in a single day. Those who are not saints are in danger of running out of funds and becoming bankrupt; a state which deprives them of a great deal of their humanity. If the man is in private practice he is obliged to utter more or less appropriate words to preserve his connexion, his living;and the mere adoption of a compassionate face as you have no doubt observed goes some little way towards producing at least the ghost of pity. But our patients cannot leave us. They have no alternative. We are not required to put on a conciliating expression, for our inhumanity in no way affects our livelihood. We have a monopoly; and I believe that many of us pay a very ugly price for it in the long run. You must already have met a number of callous idle self-important self-indulgent hardhearted pragmatic brutes wherever the patients have no free choice. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian

"Who are you?" he de­manded.

She blinked in sur­prise. "I'm Be­linda, of course."

"I'm not ugly, young Be­linda," he cor­rected her sternly. "I have a unique manly beauty that few can ap­pre­ci­ate."

"Oh," said Be­linda. "I thought you were just ugly. What a pity I'm not one of the few who can ap­pre­ci­ate your unique manly beauty," she added glumly. #Quote by Tamara Lejeune
Ugly quotes by Janet Malcolm
#117. [Richard Avedon's] camera dwells on the horrible things that age can do to people's faces - on the flabby flesh, the slack skin, the ugly growths, the puffy eyes, the knotted necks, the aimless wrinkles, the fearful and anxious set of the mouth, the marks left by sickness, madness, alcoholism, and irreversible disappointment. #Quote by Janet Malcolm

Ugly quotes by Emma Chase
#121. Ding!

Princess Alpacca, pronounced like the animal, first in line to the throne of Alieya Island, a small nation below the south of France. The Queen invited her to Wessco after an attempted coup forced her family into exile last year. She doesn't speak English and I don't know a word of Aliesh. This is going to be a challenge.

Guermo, her translator, glares at me like I'm the bubonic plague in human form - with a mixture of hatred, disgust, and just a touch of fear.

She speaks in Aliesh, looking at me.

And Guermo translates. "She says she thinks you are very ugly."

Princess Alpacca nods vigorously.

She's pretty in a cute kind of way. Wild curly hair, round hazel eyes, a tiny bulbous nose, and full cheeks.

"She says she doesn't like you or your stupid country," Guermo informs me.

Another nod and a blank but eager smile.

"She says she would rather throw herself off the rocks to her death in the waves and be devoured by the fish than be your queen."

I look him in the face. "She barely said anything."

He shrugs. "She says it with her eyes. I know these things. If you weren't so stupid you would know too."

More nodding.

"Fantastic."

She says something to Guermo in Aliesh, then he says something back - harshly and disapproving. And now, they're arguing.

But they can stay.

Guermo is obviously in love with Alp #Quote by Emma Chase

Ugly quotes by Michael Prelee
#130. These guys we're meeting? They're dead. Saji has had things done to people who crossed him or whom he has perceived as crossing him. Ugly things. These guys we're meeting? They think they're tough. They run book, own strip clubs, dabble in petty theft and probably sell dope for all I know and they're comfortable in that world, thinking they own it. That arrogance? That feeling that they can just push people around and do anything they want? It has left them with one foot in the grave and they don't even know it. #Quote by Michael Prelee

Ugly quotes by Marianne Williamson
#138. Should Michelangelo have always been calm, with so much talent and passion bursting through him? Or Georgia O'Keeffe, or Saint Teresa? We often find a common theme in biographies of talented people: In contrast to the brilliance of their art, their personalities were violent and their lives turbulent. The forces called violent and turbulent here are not in contrast to their brilliance; they were deeply felt, totally natural effects of a passionate life. How quickly we label the show of emotion as negative, particularly in women. How quick we are to label a woman's passion ugly, over the top, too much. #Quote by Marianne Williamson

Ugly quotes by Veronica Roth
#141. Cyra," Akos said, and it was the only time I had ever wished he wasn't there. He touched my shoulders, lightly, sending the shadows away. He had cold hands. A light touch.
"I'm fine," I said, running my fingers over my silver throat.
"You don't have to be fine right now."
The silverskin reflected the muted light that had crept into this half-destroyed place.
In a small, quiet voice, I asked the question that was buried deep inside me. "Am I ugly now?"
"What do you think?" he asked, and not like it was a rhetorical question. More like he knew I didn't want him to placate me, so he was asking me to think about it. I lifted my eyes to the mirror again.
My head did look strange with only half my hair, but some people in Shotet wore their hair this way, shaved on one side and long on the other. And the silverskin looked like a piece from the armor that my mother had collected in her seasons of sojourning. Like the armor on my wrist, I would always wear it, and it would make me feel strong.
I found my own eyes in the glass.
"No," I said. "I'm not."
I didn't quite mean it yet, but I thought maybe, over time, I might start to.
"I agree," he said. "In case that wasn't clear from all the kissing we've been doing. #Quote by Veronica Roth

Ugly quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#143. It all comes back to curiosity. We live in a society that objectifies us as sexual objects and status symbols. We learn to flatten ourselves and others into little words: good and bad, ugly and pretty, right and wrong, lovable and unlovable. Then, we try to discover who we are through these labels. It doesn't work. Because a human being is more than a signpost onto which we can plaster our judgments. A person is more than a sack of flesh to lose, keep, or throw away. A human being cannot be packaged into a stale idea. A person must be experienced to be known, and this knowledge ends the moment you stop looking. Each one of us is a mystery. And the more aware you become, the more mysterious it gets. The reward for seeking truth is not the truth itself. The gift is wonder. The gift is love. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Ugly quotes by Kim Edwards
#144. There was in the mountains, and perhaps in the world at large, a theory of compensation that held that for everything given something else was immediately and visibly lost. "Well, you've got the smarts even if your cousin did get the looks." Compliments, seductive as flowers, thorny with their opposites: "Yes, you may be smart but you sure are ugly; You may look nice but you didn't get a brain." Compensation; balance in the universe. #Quote by Kim Edwards

Ugly quotes by Lucy Grealy
#148. This singularity of meaning
I was my face, I was ugliness
though sometimes unbearable, also offered a possible point of escape. It became the launching pad from which to lift off, the one immediately recognizable place to point to when asked what was wrong with my life. Everything led to it, everything receded from it
my face as personal vanishing point. #Quote by Lucy Grealy

Ugly quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight Of The Idols
#153. Nothing is beautiful, except man alone: all aesthetics rests upon this naïveté, which is its first truth. Let us immediately add the second: nothing is ugly except the degenerating man - and with this the realm of aesthetic judgment is circumscribed. Physiologically, everything ugly weakens and saddens man. It reminds him of decay, danger, impotence; it actually deprives him of strength. One can measure the effect of the ugly with a dynamometer. Wherever man is depressed at all, he senses the proximity of something "ugly." His feeling of power, his will to power, his courage, his pride - all fall with the ugly and rise with the beautiful. In both cases we draw an inference: the premises for it are piled up in the greatest abundance in instinct. The ugly is understood as a sign and symptom of degeneration: whatever reminds us in the least of degeneration causes in us the judgment of "ugly." Every suggestion of exhaustion, of heaviness, of age, of weariness; every kind of lack of freedom, such as cramps, such as paralysis; and above all, the smell, the color, the form of dissolution, of decomposition - even in the ultimate attenuation into a symbol - all evoke the same reaction, the value judgment, "ugly." A hatred is aroused - but whom does man hate then? There is no doubt: the decline of his type. Here he hates out of the deepest instinct of the species; in this hatred there is a shudder, caution, depth, farsightedness - it is the deepest hatred there is. It is be #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight Of The Idols

#157. When I was very young, I wanted to be a girl. I was jealous that girls got to be princesses and wear skirts. It tormented me. When I was 6, I even heard that you could change your sex, and I was very intrigued until the moment I realized that if I changed into a girl, I would be an ugly girl, and this is the last thing I wanted to be. #Quote by Olivier Theyskens
Ugly quotes by Dennis Vickers
#158. She pinched her lips tight together, like someone considering a foul smell, three-legged dog, ugly baby. #Quote by Dennis Vickers
Ugly quotes by Marilyn Manson
#159. Let the ugly light of the world in, we are no longer blind. #Quote by Marilyn Manson
Ugly quotes by Nikki Sex
#160. Strange how mean words can return to ones thoughts, years after they've been callously thrown at you. They replay in your mind, spiking a sense of remembered pain. Nasty name calling can be an ugly memory that stabs unexpectedly - not unlike a nightmare where you wake up crying.
Sticks and stones, may break your bones - yet, cruel names can hurt you. #Quote by Nikki Sex
Ugly quotes by Aatish Taseer
#161. But he did not say a thing. Of late, almost as if he had been brought into line with the way people now spoke of the Sikhs, he had come to dislike the sound of his dissenting voice. It made him feel like a bore and an activist; and, like many people who try to fight an emerging status quo, no matter how ugly it is, he felt himself subdued, not by arguments, but by its casual tyranny. It is easier to fight the knowing bigot than it is to fight prejudice in the mouth of a child or the throwaway remark of a society lady. #Quote by Aatish Taseer
Ugly quotes by Carlos Cuaron
#162. The only moment football really stops is with a penalty kick - and that is a moment that is really dramatic. A penalty kick becomes a Western duel. It's two guys facing each other. Destiny and potential death, whether metaphorical or literal. That's why in the penalty kick at the end of the film, I shot it like an homage to the Sergio Leone Westerns I saw when I was a kid, especially The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. #Quote by Carlos Cuaron
Ugly quotes by Margaret Cho
#163. Being called ugly and fat and disgusting to look at from the time I could barely understand what the words meant has scarred me so deep inside that I have learned to hunt, stalk, claim, own and defend my own loveliness. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Ugly quotes by Evangeline Lilly
#164. I cried myself to sleep wishing I was ugly because men leered and disrespected me. #Quote by Evangeline Lilly
Ugly quotes by Suzan Blackmore
#165. Religions build theories about the world and then prevent them from being tested. Religions provide nice, appealing, and comforting ideas, and cloak them in a mask of "truth, beauty, and goodness." The theories can then thrive despite being untrue, ugly, or cruel. In the end, there is no ultimate truth to be found and locked up forever, but there are truthful theories and better or worse predictions. I do defend the idea that science, at its best, is more truthful than religion. #Quote by Suzan Blackmore
Ugly quotes by Margarita Engle
#166. How long will it be until the two countries I love forgive each other and move on ... I'm not even sure what there is to forgive. Something about Cuba seizing ownership of oil refineries. It's all so confusing. Why should something as ugly as oil affect friendships between nations? #Quote by Margarita Engle
Ugly quotes by Robert Greene
#167. I hate the way war is seen as something inherently brutal and ugly. Yes, much of war brings out the worst part of our [people's] nature. But in war, all kinds of noble human traits have been developed, such as discipline, cohesion, pride. #Quote by Robert Greene
Ugly quotes by Richard Siken
#168. Let me tell you what I do know: I am more than one thing, and not all of those things are good. The truth is complicated. It's two-toned, multi-vocal, bittersweet. I used to think that if I dug deep enough to discover something sad and ugly, I'd know it was something true. Now I'm trying to dig deeper. I didn't want to write these pages until there were no hard feelings, no sharp ones. I do not have that luxury. I am sad and angry and I want everyone to be alive again. I want more landmarks, less landmines. I want to be grateful but I'm having a hard time with it. #Quote by Richard Siken
Ugly quotes by Samiha Totanji
#169. Too tired of living under the same sky with their old faces.
So sick of being in the same room with their echoing voices.
They made my soul heavy, as much as they corrupted my mind.
They forced me to see my world in their colors as if I were a colorblind.
A walking dead is what they made of me, but I cannot take this anymore.
I'll find my way back home to the old me;
To the beautiful dreamy little girl I've been before… #Quote by Samiha Totanji
Ugly quotes by Ilona Andrews
#170. Kid 1: *examining my gorgeous strawberry and blueberry pies*: Wow, Mom, your pies don't look awful this time.
Me (Ilona): ...

~A little later~

Kid 2: *wandering into the kitchen*
Kid 1: Hey, you've got to see these pies. *opening the stove*
Kid 2: Wow. They are not ugly this time.
Kid 1: I know, right? #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Ugly quotes by Cyrese Covelli
#171. You really shouldn't have come," Lord Blackthorne said, his hand slipping across my face
to cup my jaw, fingers brushing my cheek. I shrieked, shrinking back and kicking at my captor
with stocking-covered feet. "Such a pretty child, in such an ugly place. Tell me, do you think
your dear husband would mind if I stole a kiss from the bride?"
Kicking him in the shin, I spun, making him release me. I climbed off whatever I'd landed
on, aiming my palms out and wishing that I could see what the heck was happening. Flames
from dozens of candles blinked at me as they lit with the power of my mind. Lord Blackthorne
touched my shoulder, his other hand curving around the bodice of my gown, toying with the
beading along the neckline. #Quote by Cyrese Covelli
Ugly quotes by Jane Cousins
#172. Arrgh!" Hadleigh flung up an arm to shield her eyes but the damage had been done. She'd seen a lot of ugly things in her time and generally ended up killing them but this … this thing defied description. It mocked the word ugly as pithy and stomped on an array of descriptive words such as loathsome, skin crawling and hideous. "Good Goddess, what in the Hell is that? #Quote by Jane Cousins
Ugly quotes by Sara Zarr
#173. Trust me, Jennifer. Just...trust me."
I drove another block or two. "Why should I?"
"Why shouldn't you?"
Because you left me, Cameron. After everything we went through. But I knew it wasn't his fault, any more than it was mine. It wasn't like either of us had control over our lives. We were at the mercy of our parents, both of us. Anyway, I'd already turned the car toward the freeway entrance. I turned on the car radio and we drove twenty minutes without talking. When the exit finally came into view, ugly warehouses and the new Wal-Mart looming before us, I said, "Let's go to my old apartment first. I haven't been there since we moved."
"I've gone by it a couple of times."
"Really?"
"Yeah. Living there with you was kind of my best memory."
I imagined that, him going to the apartment and looking up at the window and thinking about me. #Quote by Sara Zarr
Ugly quotes by Demi Lovato
#174. I allowed social media to define what I thought of my body. And now I realize that no matter how thin you are, someone will call you fat. No matter how beautiful you are, someone will call you ugly. But you can't spend your time worrying about that. You're just not going to please the world. #Quote by Demi Lovato
Ugly quotes by Lyle Lovett
#175. She was ugly from the front, and I said ugly, ugly, ugly, ugly, ugly. Well, I could handle it behind her. #Quote by Lyle Lovett
Ugly quotes by Cari Kamm
#176. To keep the ugly cry-face on lock down, I directed my attention to my polished gold Krugerrand coin, which hung against my chest by a thin, twisted gold chain and flashed against my black blouse. It was my Batman signal, alerting the universe that I was in crisis and in desperate need of being rescued immediately, if not sooner. The coin's weight was also a reminder of the reason I'd moved to Gotham City. After all, it was a result of my great-aunt and her one-ounce gold-coin collection that afforded me the opportunity of the life I was leading. #Quote by Cari Kamm
Ugly quotes by Natasha Pulley
#177. What's that?' Thaniel said, curious. The postmarks and stamps weren't English or Japanese.

'A painting. There's a depressed Dutchman who does countryside scenes and flowers and things. It's ugly, but I have to maintain the estates in Japan and modern art is a good investment. #Quote by Natasha Pulley
Ugly quotes by Frank Lampard
#178. There's a few ugly ones. Carlo is probably the best looking [on chelsea players] #Quote by Frank Lampard
Ugly quotes by Mia Sheridan
#179. Sometimes it seemed so much of the beauty in life resulted from the ugly. And how did you make sense of such things? How could you be thankful for something when so much suffering was necessary to bring it to you? Or was that the very thing that defined real beauty–light after darkness? #Quote by Mia Sheridan
Ugly quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#180. A warrior doesn't know remorse for anything he has done, because to isolate one's acts as being mean, or ugly, or evil is to place an unwarranted importance on the self. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Ugly quotes by Torey L. Hayden
#181. The chair and desk and stuff, they change in the darkness. Like people change. And I lay in my bed and I think, you know, this is the way the chair really is. The way it looks in the daytime, that's just a foolie. It looks that way to make me think it's all right. But it's an ugly thing, a chair at night is. And I know even in the day that it's ugly underneath. It will be ugly again, when I'm alone with it. When it's dark...I'm scared of chairs... I try not to be scared of things. I try to fight it. But I'm not good at it. It's everywhere at once. It's like fighting the night. #Quote by Torey L. Hayden
Ugly quotes by John Lydon
#182. You're made to feel ugly, and I made ugly beautiful. Just by sheer persistence. Nobody has the right to say that I am ugly, and I will not be a professional victim, you know. Sorry! #Quote by John Lydon
Ugly quotes by Vita Sackville-West
#183. Gardening is a luxury occupation: an ornament, not a necessity, of life ... Fortunate gardener, who may preoccupy himself solely with beauty in these difficult and ugly days! He is one of the few people left in this distressful world to carry on the tradition of elegance and charm. A useless member of society, considered in terms of economics, he must not be denied his rightful place. He deserves to share it, however humbly, with the painter and poet. #Quote by Vita Sackville-West
Ugly quotes by Lisa M. Cronkhite
#184. My mind can be ugly. But when I read something of mine that I think is beautiful, I'm reminded mind can be beautiful too. #Quote by Lisa M. Cronkhite
Ugly quotes by Charles Manson
#185. The truth is ugly, so we put our prophets in prison. #Quote by Charles Manson
Ugly quotes by Glenn Greenwald
#186. When poor and ordinary Americans who commit crimes are prosecuted and imprisoned, that is Justice. When the same thing is done to Washington elites, that is Ugly Retribution. #Quote by Glenn Greenwald
Ugly quotes by Rajneesh
#187. The first thing is love: love deeply. If you have been with a person for a few years, in deep love, and you have experienced all the joys and all the miseries, and still you decide to be with the person, then marriage is okay. Because marriage is only a legal arrangement, it cannot make anything more beautiful than it is. It can only make it ugly, it cannot beautify it. Once it is settled legally, once you start taking each other for granted, things will start going down rather than rising high. #Quote by Rajneesh
Ugly quotes by Milan Kundera
#188. Forms which are in themselves quite ugly turn up fortuitously, without design, in such incredible surroundings that they sparkle with a sudden wondrous poetry. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Ugly quotes by Gena Showalter
#189. I'm sorry," she said softly. "Even if you'd looked like you were born downwind of an outhouse, I would have snapped a thousand photos of you. And then used those photos to blackmail you later, but my reasons are inconsequential. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Ugly quotes by Clarice Lispector
#190. My world today is raw, it is a world of great vital difficulty. Because, more than a star, today I want the thick and black root of the stars, I want the source that always seems dirty, and is dirty, and that is always incomprehensible.
It is with pain that I bid farewell even to the beauty of a child - I want the adult who is more primitive and ugly and drier and more difficult, and who became a child-seed that cannot be broken between the teeth. #Quote by Clarice Lispector
Ugly quotes by Sonya Levien
#191. The ugly is very appealing to man. It's instinct. One shrinks from the ugly, yet wants to look at it. There's a devilish fascination in it. We extract pleasure from horror. #Quote by Sonya Levien
Ugly quotes by Glenn Beck
#192. You've been getting it. Big fat doses of the truth. it's ugly, isn't it?
Sometimes.
And you still want it?
Always ... I'm not afraid. Besides, God is my shield. You don't have to be. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Ugly quotes by Kate Atkinson
#193. So much for progress. How quickly civilization could dissolve into its more ugly elements. #Quote by Kate Atkinson
Ugly quotes by Rem Koolhaas
#194. Japan lives with drastic segregation between the sublime, the ugly, and the utterly without qualities. Dominance of the last 2 categories makes mere presence of the first stunning: when beauty 'happens', it is absolutely surprising. #Quote by Rem Koolhaas
Ugly quotes by P.C. Cast
#195. My mama told me don't trust no white boy, even a pretty one. I'm thinkin' a pretty white boy with wings explodin' up from the ground in a mess of blood and ugly-ass bird things is double trouble. - Kramisha (Ch 5) #Quote by P.C. Cast
Ugly quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#196. The least little bit o' money 'll really do ... What have yer done ter yerselves, wi' the blasted work? Spoilt yerselves. No need to work that much. Take yer clothes off an' look at yourselves. Yer ought ter be alive an' beautiful, an' yer ugly an' half dead. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Ugly quotes by Charles Bukowski
#197. The beautiful are found in the edge of a room
crumpled into spiders and needles and silence
and we can never understand why they
left,they were so
beautiful.
they dont make it,
the beautiful die young
and leave the ugly to their ugly lives. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Ugly quotes by Penny Reid
#198. I stared at him and, for the first time, I felt like I was really seeing him. He didn't love me. He used the word love like a weapon, as a means of control, as a way to ensure my blind obedience. He made it ugly. He #Quote by Penny Reid
Ugly quotes by Henny Youngman
#199. A man goes to a psychiatrist. The doctor says, "You're crazy" The man says, "I want a second opinion!" "Okay, you're ugly too!" #Quote by Henny Youngman
Ugly quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#200. We have certain demons who are motivated by the smell of food. They tend to get rather violent whenever they smell it. I personally wouldn't be caught eating anything because I would end up dead. You might not. But you'd still have to fight them, and since some of them are rather ugly and really, really smelly, it might spoil your appetite. Then again, maybe not. Doesn't spoil Noir's. I think it makes him hungrier, especially when he guts them. Sick, but true. (Asmodeus) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
