Unhappy quotes by Bertolt Brecht
#1. Unhappy the land that is in need of heroes #Quote by Bertolt Brecht
Unhappy quotes by Norah Jones

Unhappy quotes by Fay Weldon
#3. Men are irrelevant. Women are happy or unhappy, fulfilled or unfulfilled, and it has nothing to do with men. #Quote by Fay Weldon
Unhappy quotes by Etienne Gilson
#4. When man subverted order he did a great deal more than merely fall away from the rationality of his nature, diminish his own humanity, which is all that he does in Aristostle's ethics, nor he did merely compromise his destiny by an error, as it happens in the Plathonic myths; he brought disorder into the divine order, and presents the unhappy spectacle of a being in revolt against Being. [...] Every time a man sins he renews this act of revolt and prefers himself to God; in thus preferring himself, he separates himself from God; and in separating himself, he deprives himself of the sole end in which he can find beatitude and by that very fact condemns himself to misery. #Quote by Etienne Gilson
Unhappy quotes by Christine Feehan
#5. No, they would not be happy to take my place at your side, cara mia, because I would promptly end their lives in a most unhappy way.'
'You are such a caveman, Julian. You look tall and elegant and princely, yet you have not matured beyond the cave.'
…'I have no intention of riding above caveman mentality,' he growled in her ear, his breath teasing tendrils of hair and sending little flames dancing through her bloodstream. 'There are so many benefits for the caveman. #Quote by Christine Feehan
Unhappy quotes by Jaden Smith
#6. People tell me to smile, I tell them the lack of emotion on my face doesn't mean I'm unhappy. #Quote by Jaden Smith
Unhappy quotes by Florence Maule Updegraff
#7. One thing that kept me from being unhappy was the mountains, for with mountaintops to see, a body can't quite despair. #Quote by Florence Maule Updegraff
Unhappy quotes by Julia Quinn
#8. I need to know how you can be so certain,' Daniel said, his voice dropping into a furious hush.
'Well...' Hugh brought his glass to his lips and took something deeper than a sip. 'If you must know, I told him that if anything happens to you, I would kill myself.'
If Daniel had been holding anything, anything at all, it would have crashed to the ground. It was a remarkable thing that *he* did not crash to the ground.
'My father knows me well enough to know that I do not say such a thing lightly,' Hugh said, lightly.
Daniel couldn't speak.
'So if you would...' Hugh took another drink, this time barely touching his lips to the liquid. 'I would appreciate if you would endeavor not to get yourself killed in an unhappy accident. I'm sure to blame it on my father, and honestly, I'd rather not see myself off unnecessarily.'
'You're mad,' Daniel whispered ... 'Why would you do such a thing?' Daniel could not imagine anyone else - not even Marcus, who was truly a brother to him - making the same sort of threat. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Unhappy quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#9. You cannot be both unhappy, and fully present in the Now. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Unhappy quotes by Barbara Pym
#10. Perhaps it's better to be unhappy than not to feel anything at all. #Quote by Barbara Pym
Unhappy quotes by Robert Sheckley
#11. A lot of us don't want to be quite that serious about world problems. Our life is there to enjoy, not to be an eternal dissident, eternally unhappy with how things are and with the state of mankind. #Quote by Robert Sheckley
Unhappy quotes by Diana Trilling
#12. In the bad sixties, when drugs came into widespread use among adolescents and when Scarsdale mothers developed the habit of not asking about each others children for fear of what they'd hear, one knew that they were speaking-or not speaking, keeping their unhappy silence-on behalf of stricken motherhood everywhere in the country. #Quote by Diana Trilling
Unhappy quotes by Tony Robbins
#13. Most people aren't really happy, but they aren't unhappy enough to do anything about it. That's a dangerous place to be. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Unhappy quotes by Elif Batuman
#14. While it's true that, as Tolstoy observed, every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way, and everyone on planet Earth, vale of tears that it is, is certainly entitled to the specificity of his or her suffering, one nonetheless likes to think that literature has the power to render comprehensible different kinds of unhappiness. If it can't do that, what's it good for? #Quote by Elif Batuman
Unhappy quotes by Harper Bliss
#15. I know, but what was I supposed to do? Stay and become increasingly unhappy? Because I wasn't happy in that life anymore. #Quote by Harper Bliss
Unhappy quotes by Spencer W. Kimball
#16. Every divorce is the result of selfishness on the part of one or the other or both parties to a marriage contract. Someone is thinking of self comforts, conveniences, freedoms, luxuries, or ease. Sometimes the ceaseless pin pricking of an unhappy, discontented, and selfish spouse can finally add up to serious physical violence. Sometimes people are goaded to the point where they erringly feel justified in doing the things that are so wrong. Nothing of course justifies sin. #Quote by Spencer W. Kimball
Unhappy quotes by Oscar Wilde
#17. London is full of women who trust their husbands. One can always recognize them. They look so thoroughly unhappy. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Unhappy quotes by Edward Gibbon
#18. A generous intercourse of charity united the most distant provinces, and the smaller congregations were cheerfully assisted by the alms of their more opulent brethren. Such an institution, which paid less regard to the merit than to the distress of the object, very materially conduced to the progress of Christianity. The Pagans, who were actuated by a sense of humanity, while they derided the doctrines, acknowledged the benevolence of the new sect. The prospect of immediate relief and of future protection allured into its hospitable bosom many of those unhappy persons whom the neglect of the world would have abandonned to the miseries of want, of sickness, and of old age. There is some reason likewise to believe, that great numbers of infants, who, according to the inhuman practice of the times, had been exposed by their parents, were frequently rescued from death, baptised, educated, and maintained by the piety of the Christians, and at the expense of the public treasure. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Unhappy quotes by Jane Austen
#19. My beloved Laura" (said she to me a few Hours before she died) "take warning from my unhappy End ... Beware of fainting-fits ... Beware of swoons, Run mad as often as you chuse; but do not faint - ". #Quote by Jane Austen
Unhappy quotes by Aldous Huxley
#20. One entered the world, Denis pursued, having ready-made ideas about everything. One had a philosophy and tried to make life fit into it. One should have lived first and then made one's philosophy to fit life ... Life, facts, things were horribly complicated; ideas, even the most difficult of them, deceptively simple. In the world of ideas, everything was clear; in life all was obscure, embroiled. Was it surprising that one was miserable, horribly unhappy? #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Unhappy quotes by Cassandra Clare
#21. Unhappy? I was lucky. So, so lucky. And I couldn't see it." His eyes met hers. "I love you," he said. "And you make me happier than I ever thought I could be. And now that I know what it's like to be someone else - to lose myself - I want my life back. My family. You. All of it." His eyes darkened. "I want it back. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Unhappy quotes by Orson Scott Card
#22. Well, I'm your man. I'm the bloody bastard you wanted when you had me spawned. I'm your tool, and what difference does it make if I hate the part of me that you most need? What difference does it make that when the little serpents killed me in the game, I agreed with them, and was glad. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Unhappy quotes by Bernadine Dohrn
#23. I'm so unhappy with electoral politics that I switched to sports radio. #Quote by Bernadine Dohrn
Unhappy quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#24. You know, when one's in love,' I said, 'and things go all wrong, one's terribly unhappy and one thinks one won't ever get over it. But you'll be astounded to learn what the sea will do.'
What do you mean?' she smiled.
Well, love isn't a good sailor and it languishes on a sea voyage. You'll be surprised when you have the Atlantic between you and Larry to find how slight the pang is that before you sailed seemed intolerable. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Unhappy quotes by Sinclair Lewis
#25. Unhappy women are given to protecting their sensitiveness by cynical gossip, by whining, by high-church and new-thought religions, or by a fog of vagueness. #Quote by Sinclair Lewis
Unhappy quotes by Simon Kuper
#26. The things we once thought of as luxuries soon become necessities (although, by the same token, our sense of well-being would quickly adapt to losing half our income). What we care about is not our absolute wealth but our rung on the ladder. Ruut Veenhoven, a leading researcher of happiness, says, "When we have overtaken the Joneses, our reference drifts upward to the Smiths, and we feel unhappy again. #Quote by Simon Kuper
Unhappy quotes by Daniel H. Pink
#27. The billable hours is a classic case of restricted autonomy. I mean, you're working on - I mean, sometimes on these six-minute increments. So you're not focused on doing a good job. You're focused on hitting your numbers. It's one reason why lawyers typically are so unhappy. And I want a world of happy lawyers. #Quote by Daniel H. Pink
Unhappy quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#28. I associate my motion picture career more with being unhappy and scared, or being under the gun, than with anything pleasant. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Unhappy quotes by Thierry Henry
#29. I am always honest, and I am not the sort of player to say, 'Oh, I love Arsenal' and then sign for someone else. I think if I was unhappy, I would say that, but I'm not. I do love Arsenal. #Quote by Thierry Henry
Unhappy quotes by Dan Slater
#30. In 2011, Mark Brooks, a consultant to online-dating companies, published the results of an industry survey titled "How Has Internet Dating Changed Society?" The survey responses, from 39 executives, produced the following conclusions:

"Internet dating has made people more disposable."

"Internet dating may be partly responsible for a rise in the divorce rates."

"Low quality, unhappy and unsatisfying marriages are being destroyed as people drift to Internet dating sites."

"The market is hugely more efficient … People expect to - and this will be increasingly the case over time - access people anywhere, anytime, based on complex search requests … Such a feeling of access affects our pursuit of love … the whole world (versus, say, the city we live in) will, increasingly, feel like the market for our partner(s). Our pickiness will probably increase."

"Above all, Internet dating has helped people of all ages realize that there's no need to settle for a mediocre relationship."

From "A Million First Dates
How online romance is threatening monogamy" in January/February 2013 #Quote by Dan Slater
Unhappy quotes by T.V. Rao
#31. Defining Happiness in the changing world is difficult, even you find very poor people are happy with few things. Real success comes from the quality of our relationships and the emotions that we experience each day. Many unhappy feelings will
disappear if we think Have I done something today that improved the world? Have I accomplished something worthwhile?Have I helped someone less fortunate? Every Unhappy moment reduces enjoying the present moment. always think Have I felt grateful for the incredible gift of being alive? Happiness lies only with us keeping the
moments of life Happy is art, We cannot catch happiness but only follow it let us try to perfect it Dr.T.V.Rao MD #Quote by T.V. Rao
Unhappy quotes by George Orwell
#32. I wanted to write enormous naturalistic novels with unhappy endings, full of detailed descriptions and arresting similes, and also full of purple passages in which words were used partly for the sake of their own sound. #Quote by George Orwell
Unhappy quotes by Patrick Henry
#33. I believe a time will come when an opportunity will be offered to abolish this lamentable evil. #Quote by Patrick Henry
Unhappy quotes by John Boyne
#34. One day he was perfectly content, playing at home, having three best friends for life, sliding down banisters, trying to stand on his tiptoes to see right across Berlin, and now he was stuck here in this cold, nasty house with three whispering maids and a waiter who was both unhappy and angry, where no one looked as if they could ever be cheerful again. #Quote by John Boyne
Unhappy quotes by Hugo Claus
#35. I am a person who is unhappy with things as they stand. We cannot accept the world as it is. Each day we should wake up foaming at the mouth because of the injustice of things. #Quote by Hugo Claus
Unhappy quotes by Sally Brampton
#36. There is a saying, 'it's never too late to have a happy childhood'. I'd rephrase that. I'd say, it's never too late to stop a difficult childhood from turning us into unhappy adults. #Quote by Sally Brampton
Unhappy quotes by Arnold Hauser
#37. The other strikingly modern feature of the type of poet which Euripides now introduced into the history of literature is his apparently voluntary refusal to take any part whatever in public life. Euripides was not a soldier as Aeschylus was, nor a priestly dignitary as Sophocles was, but, on the other hand, he is the very first poet who is reported to have possessed a library, and he appears to be also the first poet to lead the life of a scholar in complete retirement from the world. If the bust of him, with its tousled hair, its tired eyes and the embittered lines round the mouth, is a true portrait, and if we are right in seeing in it a discrepancy between body and spirit, and the expression of a restless and dissatisfied life, then we may say that Euripides was the first unhappy poet, the first whose poetry brought him suffering. The notion of genius in the modern sense is not merely completely strange to the ancient world; its poets and artists have nothing of the genius about them. The rational and craftsmanlike elements in art are far more important for them than the irrational and intuitive. Plato's doctrine of enthusiasm emphasized, indeed, that poets owed their work to divine inspiration and not to mere technical ability, but this idea by no means leads to the exaltation of the poet; it only increases the gulf between him and his work, and makes of him a mere instrument of the divine purpose. It is, however, of the essence of the modern notion of genius that there i #Quote by Arnold Hauser
Unhappy quotes by Blaise Pascal
#38. The authority of reason is far more imperious than that of a master; for he who disobeys the one is unhappy, but he who disobeys the other is a fool. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Unhappy quotes by Alice James
#39. Ah! Those strange people who have the courage to be unhappy! Are they unhappy, by the way? #Quote by Alice James
Unhappy quotes by Win Butler
#40. I never really felt super-Texan. It wasn't like I was unhappy, but I wasn't superhappy. #Quote by Win Butler
Unhappy quotes by Frederick Lenz
#41. Let the rain of unhappy and tragic experiences fall, as sometimes it inevitably must, even in the lives of the enlightened masters. If your mind has become one with nirvana, you will remain happy at all times. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Unhappy quotes by L. Frank Baum
#42. Toto did not really care whether he was in Kansas or the Land of Oz so long as Dorothy was with him; but he knew the little girl was unhappy, and that made him unhappy too. #Quote by L. Frank Baum
Unhappy quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#43. I am now no more than a pile of blood, bone and meat that is unhappy. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Unhappy quotes by Klaus Nomi
#44. The way I look it is hard to look like a normal person. You know, in the streets when I was a kid, people always said I looked strange, and it made me feel unhappy. #Quote by Klaus Nomi
Unhappy quotes by Jennifer O'Neill
#45. How to make choices that work for you: 1) You are no longer a victim; you are a choice maker! Start seeing yourself that way and take responsibility for the choices you are making from here on out. If you want to lose weight, stop eating unhealthy food. If you are unhappy, figure out what choices you are making that are contributing to your unhappiness. There are no excuses here; if you don't like what's happening, fix it. If you don't want to fix it, then don't complain about it! 2) Make #Quote by Jennifer O'Neill
Unhappy quotes by David Foster Wallace
#46. 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
Unhappy quotes by Joan Rivers
#47. Somehow, some way, every person in the arts has to find an accommodation with disappointment and embarrassment. They are the pollen in the air we breathe. If you must go into the arts, go into them for yourself alone. On some basic level you must enjoy the act of doing it ... Otherwise, you are going to end up frustrated and unhappy. Recognition in the arts is luck and gravy. #Quote by Joan Rivers
Unhappy quotes by Brock Clarke
#48. When I was a boy, I would read those postcards and know exactly why my father was doing what he was doing: he was taking a stab at greatness, that is, if greatness is simply another word for doing something different from what you were already doing
or maybe greatness is the thing we want to have so that other people will want to have us, or maybe greatness is merely the grail for our unhappy, striving selves, the thing we think we need but don't and can't get anyway. #Quote by Brock Clarke
Unhappy quotes by Rainn Wilson
#49. I was raised to think about philosophy and religious thought and the soul and the spirit of humankind in a different way, also really socially progressive teachings of the Baha'i faith, the equality of men and women, the elimination of racial prejudice, the equality of science and religion, so it was a big cauldron of big ideas in my household. And we were weird and unhappy family, but nonetheless that was a really positive thing that came out of it. #Quote by Rainn Wilson
Unhappy quotes by Zara D. Green
#50. Here's the truth: It is not Grown to expect a relationship to provide what you are not committed to providing for yourself. The capacity for others to love you can never exceed the love you demonstrate for yourself. Furthermore, you don't attract what you want in relationships, but what you are. So if you want financial security in a relationship, you need to commit to providing that for yourself. If tender, loving treatment is what you desire, then you should be giving that to yourself as a single person. If you seek forgiveness, compassion and emotional safety in a relationship, you must be committed to requiring that of yourself in single life. If you want a relationship rich with fun, joy and adventure, then that is exactly the life you should be pursuing as a single person. On the other hand, if you are desperate and unhappy as a single person, you are neither qualified nor prepared for a healthy relationship and you will attract and choose anything but. #Quote by Zara D. Green
Unhappy quotes by Claude Vorilhon
#51. To live forever should not be an obligation. In fact, eternal life should only be for those who wish for it, because if we are depressed and unhappy with our lives, just the idea of living forever is an unbearable source of suffering. #Quote by Claude Vorilhon
Unhappy quotes by Osho
#52. The joy of having something comes from the length of time you have been wanting it, expecting it. Happiness really lies in the expectation. So once you achieve it, it loses its charm for you. Every happiness is imaginary: so long as you don't possess it, it seems to be abounding happiness. But as soon as it is actualized, it ceases to be happiness; our hands are as empty as before. And then we seek some other object for our desire, and we begin to expect it again. We feel so unhappy without it and imagine that happiness will come with it. #Quote by Osho
Unhappy quotes by David  Niven
#53. Spending your time imagining what would have been if you could have changed some little thing, some little decision in your life, is counterproductive and leaves you unhappy. Think about how you can improve for the future, but don't waste your present thinking about how you could have changed the past #Quote by David Niven
Unhappy quotes by Joss Whedon
#54. I think it's not inaccurate to say that I had a perfectly happy childhood during which I was very unhappy. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Unhappy quotes by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
#55. It is only your self-identification with your mind that makes you happy or unhappy. Rebel against your slavery to your mind, see your bonds as self-created and break the chains of attachment and revulsion. Keep in mind your goal of freedom, until it dawns on you that you are already free, that freedom is not something in the distant future to be earned with painful efforts, but perennially one's own, to be used! Liberation is not an acquisition but a matter of courage, the courage to believe that you are free already and to act on it. #Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Unhappy quotes by Sirshree
#56. UNHAPPINESS
Can anyone make you unhappy if you don't want to be unhappy? #Quote by Sirshree
Unhappy quotes by Hugh Blair
#57. To exult over the miseries of an unhappy creature is inhuman. #Quote by Hugh Blair
Unhappy quotes by Shashank Rayal
#58. When you are Happy with Someone,
You never cares about those, who are Unhappy without you. #Quote by Shashank Rayal
Unhappy quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#59. It is not true that there is dignity in all work. Some jobs are definitely better than others ... People who have good jobs are happy, rich, and well dressed. People who have bad jobs are unhappy, poor and use meat extenders. Those who seek dignity in the type of work that compels them to help hamburgers are certain to be disappointed. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Unhappy quotes by Alice Walker
#60. There could be no happy community in which there was one unhappy child. #Quote by Alice Walker
Unhappy quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#61. All your sea-omens are of disaster; and of course, with man in his present unhappy state, huddled together in numbers far too great and spending all his surplus time and treasure beating out his brother's brains, any gloomy foreboding is likely to be fulfilled; but your corpse, your parson, your St Elmo's fire is not the cause of the tragedy. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Unhappy quotes by Ron Hansen
#62. A man of principles," Jesse said.

"People say that about themselves when really they only want to make you unhappy. #Quote by Ron Hansen
Unhappy quotes by Frederick The Great
#63. The cruel man is of misanthropic temperament, and is a man of moods, oscillating from quiet brooding to sudden explosions. If a man like this does not fight this unhappy provision of his soul during his youth, under no circumstances could he a void becoming furious - and foolish. There are those who would leave it up to God, but to ensure justice on the earth, and not fob it off to the Divinity, it is mandatory that people know both virtue and its benefits, since the virtues lead to unity among them, not the war of all against all. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to conserve them, and show that crime can only return misfortunes and destruction, including of the criminal himself. Who is the last victim of his crimes. #Quote by Frederick The Great
Unhappy quotes by Javier Marias
#64. Unhappy people often insist on trying to uncover the full magnitude of their unhappiness, or choose to investigate other people's lives as a distraction from their own. #Quote by Javier Marias
Unhappy quotes by Wayne Dyer
#65. Simply put, you believe that things or people make you unhappy, but this is not accurate. You make yourself unhappy. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Unhappy quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#66. Every human being is indeed unhappy as long as he is not free from kashays. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan

Unhappy quotes by Barbara Delinsky
#68. You kids were all in college, and I suddenly saw that I was stuck alone with a man who, all those years later, was still wanting me to be someone I wasn't. #Quote by Barbara Delinsky
Unhappy quotes by Eugene Ionesco
#69. 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
Unhappy quotes by Pat Conroy
#70. Though I've never met a teacher who was not happy in retirement, I rarely meet one who thinks that their teaching life was not a grand way to spend a human life. The unhappy ones are the young ones, those who must teach in public schools when the whole nation seems at war with the very essence of teaching. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Unhappy quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#71. We must spoil our women, boy. A happy woman makes a happy home. An unhappy one makes us drink. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Unhappy quotes by Michael Crichton
#72. The second reason to abandon environmental religion is more pressing. Religions think they know it all, but the unhappy truth of the environment is that we are dealing with incredibly complex, evolving systems, and we usually are not certain how best to proceed. Those who are certain are demonstrating their personality type, or their belief system, not the state of their knowledge. #Quote by Michael Crichton
Unhappy quotes by Katherine Mansfield
#73. What is it with me? Am I absolutely nobody, but merely inordinately vain? I do not know ... . But I am most fearfully unhappy. That is all. I am so unhappy that I wish I was dead - yet I should be mad to die when I have not yet lived at all. #Quote by Katherine Mansfield
Unhappy quotes by Emily Bronte
#74. But he was too good to be thoroughly unhappy long. #Quote by Emily Bronte
Unhappy quotes by Craig Biggio
#75. We guided our children. We supported them. We were there for them. But once you start going through your list of schools that present a potential opportunity, a young man or a young woman has to be happy with their decision. If they are unhappy, then their whole four years of college are going to be some of the most miserable memories of their lifetime. #Quote by Craig Biggio
Unhappy quotes by Tommy Wallach
#76. I think that kids have a knack for detecting happiness, but they lose it as they get older. They have to. Otherwise they'd notice how unhappy everybody else is, and they'd never be able to be happy themselves. #Quote by Tommy Wallach
Unhappy quotes by William Godwin
#77. It has an unhappy effect upon the human understanding and temper, for a man to be compelled in his gravest investigation of an argument, to consider, not what is true, but what is convenient. #Quote by William Godwin
Unhappy quotes by Natalia Ginzburg
#78. At times he was very unhappy, but for a long time we thought that he would be cured of this unhappiness when he decided to become an adult; his unhappiness seemed like that of a boy - the absent-minded, voluptuous melancholy of a boy who has not yet got his feet on the ground and who lives in the sterile, solitary world of his dreams. #Quote by Natalia Ginzburg
Unhappy quotes by Zack Love
#79. Love?" Heeb asked, playfully pretending not to know the concept.
"Yeah. The real thing. The conviction that if you had this one woman, all other women would become irrelevant. You'd never again be unhappy. And you'd give up anything to have her and keep her." *Evan* #Quote by Zack Love
Unhappy quotes by Pat Conroy
#80. A nation of unhappy teachers makes for a sadder and more endangered America. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Unhappy quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#81. There are people who are never content, never appeased, forever dissatisfied - who continually look to what escapes them, convincing themselves that if only they could attain that one desire outside of reach they would be happy. It seems almost pointless to give to these people because their eyes immediately shift from the gift to stare miserably at the portion held back. Their wants, demands, expectations, appetites are never satiated, thus they refuse to be happy. And you cannot make them so. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Unhappy quotes by Groucho Marx
#82. No one is completely unhappy at the failure of his best friend. #Quote by Groucho Marx
Unhappy quotes by Keith Richards
#83. I've always been suspicious of TV, I've always found music and video to be an unhappy marriage. #Quote by Keith Richards
Unhappy quotes by Charles Dickens
#84. Therefore, he sat before his dying fire, sorrowful to think upon
the way by which he had come to that night, yet not strewing poison
on the way by which other men had come to it. That he should have
missed so much, and at his time of life should look so far about
him for any staff to bear him company upon his downward journey and
cheer it, was a just regret. He looked at the fire from which the
blaze departed, from which the afterglow subsided, in which the
ashes turned grey, from which they dropped to dust, and thought,
'How soon I too shall pass through such changes, and be gone!'

To review his life was like descending a green tree in fruit and
flower, and seeing all the branches wither and drop off, one by
one, as he came down towards them.

'From the unhappy suppression of my youngest days, through the
rigid and unloving home that followed them, through my departure,
my long exile, my return, my mother's welcome, my intercourse with
her since, down to the afternoon of this day with poor Flora,' said
Arthur Clennam, 'what have I found!'

His door was softly opened, and these spoken words startled him,
and came as if they were an answer:

'Little Dorrit. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Unhappy quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#85. Don't take my advice. Or anyone's advice. Trust yourself. For good or for bad, happy or unhappy, it's your life, and what you do with it has always been entirely up to you. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Unhappy quotes by Anelise Chen
#86. I would rather be unhappy than be the kind of person who keeps an exercise journal. #Quote by Anelise Chen
Unhappy quotes by Cornelia Funke
#87. She read and read and read, but she was stuffing herself with the letters on the page like an unhappy child stuffing itself with chocolate. They didn't taste bad, but she was still unhappy. #Quote by Cornelia Funke
Unhappy quotes by Meir Ezra
#88. You get as much money as you are happy, and you prevent money from coming your way as much as you are unhappy. #Quote by Meir Ezra
Unhappy quotes by Mesa Selimovic
#89. But we belong to no one, we're always on some frontier, always someone's dowry. Is it then surprising that we're poor? For centuries we've been trying to find, trying to recognize ourselves. Soon we won't even know who we are, we're already forgetting that we've even been striving for anything. Others do us the honor of letting us march under their banners, since we have none of our own. They entice us when they need us, and reject us when we're no longer any use to them. The saddest land in the world, the most unhappy people in the world. We're losing our identity, but we cannot assume another, foreign one. We've been severed from our roots, but haven't become part of anything else; foreign to everyone, both to those who are our kin and those who won't take us in and adopt us as their own. We live at a crossroads of worlds, at a border between peoples, in everyone's way. And someone always thinks we're to blame for something. The waves of history crash against us, as against a reef. We're fed up with those in power and we've made a virtue out of distress: we've become noble-minded out of spite. You're ruthless on a whim. So who's backward? #Quote by Mesa Selimovic
Unhappy quotes by Marianne Faithfull
#90. If I let myself sink into depression, I won't be able to get out. And then I'll be awfully unhappy. I just have to turn my face to the light and walk on. And trust that things will be all right. #Quote by Marianne Faithfull
Unhappy quotes by Mark Twain
#91. If there is one thing that is really cheerful in the world, it is cheerfulness. I have noticed it often. And I have noticed that when a man is right down cheerful, he is seldom unhappy for the time being. Such is the nature of man. #Quote by Mark Twain
Unhappy quotes by Loretta Chase
#92. We have been wed scarcely three days," she said. "You do not desert your new bride for your sapskull friends. You will not make a laughingstock of me. If you are unhappy with me, you say so, and we discuss it - or quarrel, if you prefer. But you do not - "
"You do not dictate to me," he said levelly. "You do not tell me where I may and may not go - or when - or with whom. I do not explain to you and you do not question. And you do not come into my room and throw temper fits."
"Yes, I do," she said. "If you leave this house, I will shoot your horse out from under you."
"Shoot my - "
"I will not permit you to desert me," she said. "You will not take me for granted as Sherburne does his wife, and you will not make all the world laugh at me - or pity me - as they do her. If you cannot bear to miss your precious wrestling match, you can jolly well take me with you."
"Take you?" His voice climbed. "I'll bloody well take you, madam - straight to your room. And lock you in, if you can't behave yourself. #Quote by Loretta Chase
Unhappy quotes by Elizabeth F. Loftus
#93. A laboratory analogy to repression can be found in an experiment by A.F. Zeller.
Zeller arranged a situation so that one group of students underwent an unhappy "failure" experience right after they had successfully learned a list of nonsense syllables. When tested later, these subjects showed much poorer recall of the nonsense syllables compared to a control group, who had not experienced failure. When this same "failure" group was later allowed to succeed on the same task that they had earlier failed, their recall showed tremendous improvement. This experiment indicates that when the reason for the repression is removed, when material to be remembered is no longer associated with negative effects, a person no longer experiences retrieval failure. #Quote by Elizabeth F. Loftus
Unhappy quotes by Richard Baxter
#94. A graceless, inexperienced preacher is one of the most unhappy creatures upon earth: and yet he is ordinarily very insensible of his unhappiness; for he has so many counters that seem like the gold of saving grace, and so many splendid stones that resemble Christian jewels, that he is seldom troubled with the thoughts of his poverty; but (Rev3:15) thinks he is "rich, and increased in goods, and stands in need of nothing, when he is poor, and miserable, and blind, and naked." He #Quote by Richard Baxter
Unhappy quotes by Patrick Ussher
#95. anyone who looks for happiness from external events is destined to be unhappy much of the time. #Quote by Patrick Ussher
Unhappy quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#96. Bigger questions, questions with more than one answer, questions without an answer are the hardest to cope with in silence. Once asked they do not evaporate and leave the mind to its serener musings. Once asked they gain dimension and texture, trip you on the stairs, wake you at night-time. A black hole sucks up its surroundings and even light never escapes. Better then to ask no questions? Better then to be a contented pig than an unhappy Socrates? Since factory farming is tougher on pigs than it is on philosophers I'll take a chance. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Unhappy quotes by Avina Celeste
#97. Overcoming your inferior emotions doesn't begin with a focus on them. Look beyond the bad and into the good. The only way to live a happy life is to concentrate on what makes it happy, not what makes it unhappy. Focus on the good, it's the only way to live. #Quote by Avina Celeste
Unhappy quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#98. You could say, in a vulgar Freudian way, that I am the unhappy child who escapes into books. Even as a child, I was most happy being alone. This has not changed. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Unhappy quotes by Rowland S. Miller
#99. In particular, husbands and wives who do poorly at nonverbal communication tend to be dissatisfied with their marriages. Moreover, when such problems occur, it's usually the husband's fault .

In the first ingenious study of this sort, Patricia Noller (1980) found that
husbands in unhappy marriages sent more confusing messages and made more decoding errors than happy husbands did. There were no such differences among the wives, so the poorer communication Noller observed in the distressed marriages appeared to be the husbands' fault. Men in troubled marriages were misinterpreting communications from their wives that were clearly legible to total strangers.

Even worse, such husbands were completely clueless about their mistakes; they assumed that they were doing a fine job communicating with their wives, and were confident that they understood their wives and that their wives understood them. The men were doing a poor job communicating and didn't know it, and that's why they seemed to be at fault. #Quote by Rowland S. Miller
Unhappy quotes by Dolph Lundgren
#100. Hollywood is great for entertaining people, it's a wonderful business but it's make-believe, you must remember that. That's one of the most important things to remember and the distinction in your own life, otherwise people get lost in their own fame, and it makes them unhappy. #Quote by Dolph Lundgren

Unhappy quotes by Audrey Niffenegger
#103. We are often insane with happiness. We are also very unhappy for reasons neither of us can do anything about. Like being separated. #Quote by Audrey Niffenegger
Unhappy quotes by Laura Moriarty
#104. My mother says that when Mrs. Rowley is mean, which is generally the case, it is really because she is just unhappy, and who could blame her with a husband like that ... She says this is really the only reason people are ever mean
they have something hurting inside of them, a claw of unhappiness scratching at their hearts, and it hurts them so much that sometimes they have to push it right out of their mouths to scratch someone else, just to give themselves a rest, a moment of relief. #Quote by Laura Moriarty
Unhappy quotes by Tessa Dare
#105. So I will just tell you I love you. I love you, Bram. I want everyone to see it, and I want you to know . . . you're a part of this place now. No matter where duty takes you, Spindle Cove will always be here for you. And so will I." He put both arms around her, pulling her flush against his chest. "You beautiful, brazen thing." Then he went silent, just holding her gaze for what seemed like eons. Nerves multiplied in her stomach with every passing second. She swallowed hard. "Don't you have anything else to say?"" 'Hallelujah' springs to mind. Beyond that . . ." He brushed a caress down her cheek. "Does this mean that if I proposed marriage to you right now, you might not make that twisty, unhappy face?" "Try me and see. #Quote by Tessa Dare

Unhappy quotes by Katharine Graham
#107. Although at the time I didn't realize what was happening, I was unable to make a decision that might displease those around me. For years, whatever directive I may have issued ended with the phrase, 'If it's all right with you.' If I thought I'd done anything to make someone unhappy, I'd agonize. #Quote by Katharine Graham

Unhappy quotes by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Unhappy quotes by Katie Hafner
#110. Doing a geographic" is a term alcoholics often use for acting on the impulse to start over by moving to a new town, or state, instead of making any internal changes. It's the anywhere-but-here part of the disease that says, "Remove yourself from this, go someplace new, and everything will be better." Two years into our Florida stint, my mother pulled a geographic as radical as the move from Rochester. The new plan was to head for California.

She enrolled in the mathematics graduate program at the University of California's shiny new campus in San Diego, and as soon as our elementary school let out for the summer, she put us into a new Buick station wagon – a gift from her parents – and drove us across the country.

You'd think we'd have protested at yet another move. After all, having been duped before, we were in no position to believe that the next move would be any different. But I have no memory of being unhappy about the news. Because that's what often happens when an alcoholic parent is doing a geographic. She pulls you in and, before you know it, you, too, believe in the promise of the new place. #Quote by Katie Hafner

Unhappy quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
#113. The morbid states of health, the irritableness of disposition arising from unstrung nerves, the impatience, the crossness, the fault-finding of men, who, full of morbid influences, are unhappy themselves, and throw the cloud of their troubles like a dark shadow upon others, teach us what eminent duty there is in health. #Quote by Henry Ward Beecher
Unhappy quotes by Anton Chekhov
#114. It's obvious that the happy man feels contented only because the unhappy ones bear their burden without saying a word: if it weren't for their silence, happiness would be quiet impossible. It's a kind of mass hypnosis #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Unhappy quotes by Ron Baratono
#115. In our quest for happiness many times we evade the truth and remain unhappy. The truth lies within our hearts, regarding faith, family and inner peace. To love yourself is the largest truth you'll ever have. It's there where happiness begins. #Quote by Ron Baratono
Unhappy quotes by Robert Downey, Jr.
#116. I used to be so convinced that happiness was the goal, yet all those years I was chasing after it I was unhappy in the pursuit. Maybe the goal really should be a life that values honor, duty, good work, friends and family. #Quote by Robert Downey, Jr.
Unhappy quotes by Tiger Woods
#117. Buddhism teaches that a craving for things outside ourselves causes an unhappy and pointless search for security. It teaches me to stop following every impulse and to learn restraint. Obviously, I lost track of what I was taught. #Quote by Tiger Woods

Unhappy quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#121. Normally we will say we are happy or we are unhappy. I have met some people who told Me, "Oh we went to that Guru we were very happy." I said, "You could be happy in the pub also. What is happiness?" Happiness is not the way to judge any one, neither unhappiness. Unhappiness comes to you through this super ego and happiness through this ego. But joy has no double face, joy is joy. In joy, you witness, you witness the whole thing. And when you are joyous you feel the whole thing, the joy itself coming on you like grace falling on to you. It's so beautiful that you just get lost into it. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Unhappy quotes by Terry Pratchett
#122. Whatever you choose, your choice will mean there are two new worlds. And perhaps sometimes, on the edge of sleep, we will see the shadow of the other world. There will be no unhappy memories. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Unhappy quotes by Machado De Assis
#123. I am beginning to be sorry that I ever undertook to write this book. Not that it bores me; I have nothing else to do; indeed, it is a welcome distraction from eternity. But the book is tedious, it smells of the tomb, it has a rigor mortis about it; a serious fault, and yet a relatively small one, for the great defect of this book is you, reader. You want to live fast, to get to the end, and the book ambles along slowly; you like straight, solid narrative and a smooth style, but this book and my style are like a pair of drunks; they stagger to the right and to the left, they start and they stop, they mutter, they roar, they guffaw, they threaten the sky, they slip and fall ...
And fall! Unhappy leaves of my cypress tree, you had to fall, like everything else that is lovely and beautiful; if I had eyes, I would shed a tear of remembrance for you. And this is the great advantage in being dead, that if you have no mouth with which to laugh, neither have you eyes with which to cry. #Quote by Machado De Assis

Unhappy quotes by Blanche Wiesen Cook
#125. In one way, it is this sense of order and also love that, I think, really saved Eleanor Roosevelt's life. And in her own writing, she's very warm about her grandmother, even though, if you look at contemporary accounts, they're accounts of horror at the Dickensian scene that Tivoli represents: bleak and drear and dark and unhappy. But Eleanor Roosevelt in her own writings is not very unhappy about Tivoli. #Quote by Blanche Wiesen Cook

Unhappy quotes by Carlos Wallace
#128. People spend money they don't have on clothes and accessories they don't need to fill a void. No matter how much they invest in their own physical reconstruction (or in some cases deconstruction), they are still unhappy with who they see in the mirror. Don't get me wrong. We all do things to enhance our personal appearance, some more than others. But changing what's on the outside will not resolve deep-rooted issues. #Quote by Carlos Wallace

Unhappy quotes by Dennis Prager
#133. The Joy of Victimhood There are some clear rules about happiness. One is that you cannot be happy if your primary identity is that of a victim, even if you really are one. There are a number of reasons: People who regard themselves as victims do not see themselves as in control of their lives. Whatever happens in their lives happens to them, not by them. People who primarily regard themselves as victims see the world as unfair to them in particular. Just as the young student who always sees himself as "being picked on" is an unhappy soul, so is the person who carries that attitude into adulthood. People who regard themselves primarily as victims are angry people, and an angry disposition renders happiness impossible. People who have chosen to regard themselves as victims cannot allow themselves to enjoy life, because enjoying life would challenge their perception of themselves as victims. #Quote by Dennis Prager
Unhappy quotes by Scott Adams
#134. I've explained to a number of people my observations about how exercise, diet, and sleep influence mood. The usual reaction is a blank expression followed by a change of topic. No one wants to believe that the formula for happiness is as simple as daydreaming, controlling your schedule, napping, eating right, and being active every day. You'd feel like an idiot for suffering so many unhappy days while not knowing the cure was so accessible. #Quote by Scott Adams
Unhappy quotes by Ray Bradbury

Unhappy quotes by Victor Hugo
#136. I never realized my ugliness till now. When I compared myself with you, I pity myself indeed, poor unhappy monster that I am! I must seem to you like some awful beast, eh? You,-you are a sunbeam, a drop of dew, a bird's song! As for me, I am something frightful, neither man nor beast,- a nondescript object, more hard, shapeless, and more trodden under foot than a pebble! #Quote by Victor Hugo

Unhappy quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#140. Not necessity, not desire - no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything - health, food, a place to live, entertainment - they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Unhappy quotes by Elizabeth Vaughan
#141. Will you allow this, Keir of the Cat?"

Keir's face was bland, but I could see the storm in his eyes. After a long moment, he turned to me. "Lara?"

"My oaths require that I treat any that ask it of me," I responded. "You are my Warlord, Keir of the Cat. I respect that you are concerned for my safety. Please respect my oaths in return. Besides," I smiled at him, "it's a tent. If I so much as breathe hard, you will slash your way to my side."

He gave me a look then, an unhappy look, to be sure. But I raised my eyebrows at him, and the corners of his eyes crinkled. "Very well. As my Warprize requests."

Essa struggled to his feet. "Please refrain from slashing your way through my tent, Warlord." He walked toward what must be his sleeping area. "This way, Warprize. #Quote by Elizabeth Vaughan
Unhappy quotes by Marie Rutkoski
#142. He is a slave."
"He is a man, as I am."
Kestrel slipped from her saddle, stood face-to-face with Ronan, and lied. "He is nothing to me."
Ronan's anger dimmed a little. He waited, listening.
"I never should have challenged Irex." Kestrel decided to weave some truth into her story, to toughen the fabric of it. "But he and I have an unfriendly history. He made me an offer last spring. I turned him down. Since then, he has been…aggressive."
She had Ronan's sympathy then, and she was grateful, for she didn't know what she would do if he and Jess turned their backs on her. She needed them--not only today, but always.
"Irex angered me. The slave was just an excuse." How much easier everything would be if that were so. But Kestrel wouldn't let herself consider the truth. She didn't want to know its shape or see its face. "I was thoughtless and rash, but I've drawn my tiles and must play them. Will you help me, Ronan? Will you do as I asked in my letter?"
"Yes." He still looked unhappy. "Though as far as I can see, there is little for me to do but stand and watch you fight."
"And Jess? Will she be at the duel?"
"Yes, as soon as she is done weeping her eyes out. What a fright you've given us, Kestrel."
Kestrel opened a saddlebag and passed Ronan the purse with the death-price. He took it, recognizing it by its weight and the fact that her letter had told him to expect it. Softly, he said, "You frightened me."
She embraced him, step #Quote by Marie Rutkoski
Unhappy quotes by Suzanne Wright
#143. She turned to the three men in her life. "I don't want any of you trying to protect me tonight." Marcus, Nick, and Eli frowned. "I mean it. I'll be nothing but a distraction if all you're thinking about is my safety. Besides, if you really want me safe, the way to do it is to rip apart any jackal you see - you concentrate on what's in front of you. Got me?" Her brothers nodded with an unhappy sigh.
Marcus rubbed his nose against hers. "I got you, sweetheart. But that works both ways." He almost smiled at her rebellious expression. He and his wolf liked that was she so protective. "Don't worry about me. You just worry about this." He lightly tapped her ass. "It's mine, and I want it safe. #Quote by Suzanne Wright
Unhappy quotes by Elle Kennedy
#144. There are five unread messages on the screen, which is what happens when you're the meat in a hot girl sandwich. Threesomes trump checking your phone. That's a no-brainer.

Logan: Hey, bro, Wellsy's friend Allie is crashing at our place this weekend.

Logan: Keep your dick in your pants. G and I aren't in the mood to beat u senseless if u try something. Wellsy might be in the mood for violence, tho. So: dick = pants = don't bother our guest.

Hannah: Allie's staying with u guys til Sunday. She's in a vulnerable place right now. Don't take advantage of her or else I'll be unhappy. And u don't want to make me unhappy, do u?

I snicker. Hannah, diplomatic as always. I quickly scan the last two messages.

Garrett: Allie's gonna crash in my room.

Garrett: Your dick can stay in your room.

Jeez, what is everybody's fascination with my dick? #Quote by Elle Kennedy

Unhappy quotes by C.S. Lewis
#146. Long since on Mars and more strongly since he came to Perelandra, Ransom had been perceiving that the triple distinction of truth from myth and both from fact was purely terrestrial-was part and parcel of that unhappy distinction between soul and body which resulted from the fall. Even on earth the sacraments existed as a permanent reminder that the division was neither wholesome nor final. The Incarnation had been the beginning of its disappearance. In Perelandra it would have no meaning at all. #Quote by C.S. Lewis

Unhappy quotes by Jewel
#151. The truth is that no one can keep you captive. No one can keep you unhappy. No one can keep you abused. Our lives rise to the level we accept. I do believe we can rise from the screaming blood of our losses, of extreme pain, physically debilitating emotion, psychological neglect, and apathy, and not merely survive, but thrive. We do not need to let our histories or our losses define us except in the way we choose. We can use them as fuel to create real depth, beauty, connectedness, and compassion in our lives. Our stories can make us exceptional people, not damaged ones. If we choose to be truthful with ourselves. And if we choose to digest and release the pain rather than try to avoid it. This is how pain accumulates and creates more pain, leading to neurosis, pathology, and brittleness of spirit. #Quote by Jewel
Unhappy quotes by Anne Frank
#152. The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. #Quote by Anne Frank

Unhappy quotes by Paul Ekman
#156. If a person feels terrible, it usually should not be shown or acknowledged during a greeting exchange. Instead, the unhappy person is expected to conceal negative feelings, putting on a polite smile to accompany the "Just fine, thank you, and how are you?" reply to the "How are you today?" The true feelings will probably go undetected, not because the smile is such a good mask but because in polite exchanges people rarely care how the other person actually feels. #Quote by Paul Ekman
Unhappy quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#157. The mind which is free from passions is a citadel, for man has nothing more secure to which he can fly for refuge and for the future be inexpugnable . He then who has not seen this is an ignorant man: but he who has seen it and does not fly to this refuge is unhappy. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius

Unhappy quotes by Rajesh Goyal
#160. It is so rightly said that you only live once, but if you live it right, once is enough. Let you remind yourself that you are not only one in billions of people, but you are once in a lifetime kind of person. Let you leave no kind word unsaid, leave no good deed undone & never miss a single opportunity of celebration, occasion or possibility of feeling good or making your life & your world more beautiful. Let you stop sitting on fence waiting for your turn foolishly or just hanging on to the handrails. Let you opt for the joyful ride of your life everyday & throw as much paint as you can on the canvas of your life making it more irresistible, graceful & meaningful. Let you realize that any time spent on being unhappy, detesting or loathing is wasted. Stay Blessed & Keep Being Awesome! #Quote by Rajesh Goyal
Unhappy quotes by John Dryden
#161. The unhappy man, who once has trail'd a pen, Lives not to please himself, but other men; Is always drudging, wastes his life and blood, Yet only eats and drinks what you think good. #Quote by John Dryden
Unhappy quotes by Chris Manby
#162. There is never a right time to break someone's heart. And anyone with even a microgram of sensitivity in his or her body will agonise for an age over that timing. Only problem is there is always some reason not to make someone unhappy. The day a relationship end, if that relationship was at all important to the suckers involved, becomes as important an anniversary as a wedding day or birthday.
Obviously, the average person doesn't want to kick someone they once loved while that person is down.
It's not just hard times when someone is down that become obstacles to making your getaway. After times of bereavement, unemployment and general unhappiness, those events that should be happy ones also make some times off limits for the eager would- be dumper. Christmas, birthdays, Easter all impossible. A clever person with a sensitive lover that they sense is not quite as into them as he or she used to be, could starve off the inevitable for years by carefully spacing out this crucial dates. #Quote by Chris Manby
Unhappy quotes by Haruki Murakami
#163. We couldn't bear to be apart. So if Kizuki had lived, I'm sure we would have been together, loving each other, and gradually growing unhappy."

Unhappy? Why's that?"

With her fingers, Naoko combed her hair back several times. She had taken her barrette off, which made the hair fall over her face when she dropped her head forward.

Because we would have had to pay the world back what we owed it," she said, raising her eyes to mine. "The pain of growing up. We didn't pay when we should have, so now the bills are due. Which is why Kizuki did what he did, and why I'm here. We were like kids who grew up naked on a desert island. If we got hungry, we'd just pick a banana; if we got lonely, we'd go to sleep in each other's arms. But that kind of thing doesn't last forever. We grew up fast and had to enter society. Which is why you were so important to us. You were the link connecting us with the outside world. We were struggling through you to fit in with the outside world as best we could. In the end, it didn't work, of course."

I nodded.

I wouldn't want you to think that we were using you, though. Kizuki really loved you. It just so happened that our connection with you was our first connection with anyone else. And it still is. Kizuki may be dead, but you are still my only link with the outside world. And just as Kizuki loved you, I love you. We never meant to hurt you, but we probably did; we probably ended up making a deep wo #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Unhappy quotes by Douglas Coupland
#164. I watch these kids.
They don't seem entirely unhappy. A few times I've even circled the Free Clinic on foot, trying to catch a closer glimpse of these kids and their lives as they pop in and out of the clinic's Sputnik-era, gone-to-seed building--Lancaster's future trolls and Popeyes loitering out back having hushed paranoid conversations. And once I even went to have a look where they hang out in a big way, out in the delivery bay behind the now-closed Donut Hut, the delivery bay grotto out back with a floor spongy with pigeon shit, chewing gum, cigarette ashes, and throat oysters--dank and sunless. I went to visit this place once when all the druggies were away, having their druggy lives downtown doing their druggy things: yelling at parked cars and having conversations with amber lights. I visited this place and I was confused: confused and attracted. Who do these people think they are? How can they not care about the future or hot running water or clean sheets or cable TV? These people. And on the walls down at the delivery bay, do you know what they had written? Written in letters several hands high, letters built of IV needles attached to the cement with soiled bandages and wads of chewing gum? They had written the words WE LIKE IT. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Unhappy quotes by James Lusarde
#165. Reality runs the risk of spoiling things, don't you think? The fantasy is often better. That's where the soul is fulfilled. Reality struggles to fulfil the soul, that's why we're often so unhappy. But fantasy is the world of the soul ... #Quote by James Lusarde
Unhappy quotes by Sukarno
#166. I am very unhappy about reports that I was seeking asylum in Manila. #Quote by Sukarno
Unhappy quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#167. Show me one couple unhappy merely on account of their limited circumstances, and I will show you ten who are wretched from other causes. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Unhappy quotes by George Ohsawa
#168. Sickness is the first warning that we have made a wrong judgement. A healthy person is never unhappy. #Quote by George Ohsawa
Unhappy quotes by Lao-Tzu
#169. 31 against war
Weapons are unhappy tools,
not chosen by thoughtful people,
to be used only when there is no choice,
and with a calm, still mind,
without enjoyment.
To enjoy using weapons
is to enjoy killing people,
and to enjoy killing people
is to lose your share in the common good ... #Quote by Lao-Tzu
Unhappy quotes by Christopher Bram
#170. Being a Boy Scout saved my life. I was a bookish, introverted kid, shy and withdrawn, unhappy and easily bullied. I was also gay, although I didn't know it yet. I should've been miserable. But being a scout got me out of myself and into the world. #Quote by Christopher Bram
Unhappy quotes by E.B. White
#171. A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people - people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.
[Letters of Note; Troy (MI, USA) Public Library, 1971] #Quote by E.B. White
Unhappy quotes by Jill Davis
#172. Happy endings aren't for cowards. I've been alive for how many years, and I've just found that one out. I learned to be unfaithful from my parents. Not infidelity in the classic sense- but I was always prepared for the unhappy ending, which made me less willing to word toward a happy one. I was unfaithful to the idea of a well-adjusted future. #Quote by Jill Davis
Unhappy quotes by Charles Bukowski
#173. they are unhappy with what I have become #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Unhappy quotes by Kyousuke Motomi
#174. If my stories can touch you, make you laugh, forget unhappy things, or even give you that 'good job' feeling, then I'll be super, super happy! #Quote by Kyousuke Motomi
Unhappy quotes by Roland Barthes
#175. The imperfect is the tense of fascination: it seems to be alive and yet it doesn't move: imperfect presence, imperfect death; neither oblivion nor resurrection; simply the exhausting lure of memory. From the start, greedy to play a role, scenes take their position in memory: often I feel this, I foresee this, at the very moment when these scenes are forming. - This theater of time is very contrary of the search of lost time; for I remember pathetically, punctually, and not philosophically, discursively: I remember in order to be unhappy/happy - not in order to understand. I do not write, I do not shut myself up in order to write the enormous novel of time recaptured. #Quote by Roland Barthes
Unhappy quotes by Jean Rhys
#176. For the first time she had dimly realized that only the hopeless are starkly sincere and that only the unhappy can either give or take sympathy
even some of the bitter and dangerous voluptuousness of misery. #Quote by Jean Rhys
Unhappy quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#177. Tonight, unhappy with your love, your job, your life, not enough money? Use your head. You can think yourself into a lot better you. Positive thoughts can transform, can attract the good things you know you want. Sound far-fetched? Think again. It's supported by science. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Unhappy quotes by Jan Chozen Bays
#178. When you are unhappy, discover what you are clinging to and let it go. #Quote by Jan Chozen Bays
Unhappy quotes by Aaron Sorkin
#179. When I create a TV show, it's so that I can write it. I'm not an empire builder; my writing staff is usually a combination of two kinds of people - experts in the world the show is set in, and young writers who will not be unhappy if they're not writing scripts. #Quote by Aaron Sorkin
Unhappy quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
#180. Uselessness
Let mine not be the saddest fate of all,
To live beyond my greater self; to see
My faculties decaying, as the tree
Stands stark and helpless while its green leaves fall
Let me hear rather the imperious call,
Which all men dread, in my glad morning time,
And follow death ere I have reached my prime,
Or drunk the strengthening cordial of life's gall.
The lightning's stroke or the fierce tempest blast
Which fells the green tree to the earth to-day
Is kinder than the calm that lets it last,
Unhappy witness of its own decay.
May no man ever look on me and say,
'She lives, but all her usefulness is past. #Quote by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Unhappy quotes by Mary Anne Radmacher
#181. Today ... maybe I can take one step on that profoundly complex path to peace. #Quote by Mary Anne Radmacher
Unhappy quotes by Antoine Rivarol
#182. To lose one's self in reverie, one must be either very happy, or very unhappy. Reverie is the child of extremes. #Quote by Antoine Rivarol
Unhappy quotes by Honore De Balzac
#183. Thought is the only treasure that God sets outside all power and keeps to serve as a secret link among the unhappy. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Unhappy quotes by Randi Kreger
#184. You must understand that you do have the power to change your relationships and your life, but it is likely going to be frightening at first. The alternative is to live a fairly unhappy and unsatisfying life in which fear dictates your choices and their relationships. #Quote by Randi Kreger
Unhappy quotes by Ashley Jensen
#185. I made some flippant remark about not wanting my son to grow up with an American accent, and the next thing I knew, there were people in America suggesting I head back to Britain if I was unhappy at such a prospect. #Quote by Ashley Jensen
Unhappy quotes by Chris Stewart
#186. In the time you will live, there will be heroes around. Simple men, honest men who work two jobs, go to school, raise a family, and serve our God. An older couple who have the courage to seek out the truth while enduring the scorn and ridicule of their children and friends. A young man, a special spirit, who will take on a body that is deformed- and yet you will never see hime unhappy or without a smile on his face. A young mother who will care for a daughter while she suffers a painful death, and yet never doubt or loose faith that her Father loves them both.
In your worl famous people will be hard to find. But you will be surrounded by heroes, you will meet them everyday. They will be the simple people who struggle but never give up, those who strive to be happy despite the cares of the physical world, those who dream of the day when they will find the truth, those who search for understanding as to why they were born, why there is pain, or what it all means, and yet continure to endure, knowing in their soul, somewhere deep inside, that there has to be an answer.
These are the heroes that our Father needs down on earth. And you will be a hero. We already know that. #Quote by Chris Stewart
Unhappy quotes by Meik Wiking
#187. But one of the main reasons why Denmark does so well in international happiness surveys is the welfare state, as it reduces uncertainty, worries and stress in the population. You can say that Denmark is the happiest country in the world or you can say that Denmark is the least unhappy country in the world. The welfare state is really good (not perfect, but good) at reducing extreme unhappiness. Universal and free health care, free university education and relatively generous unemployment benefits go a long way towards reducing unhappiness. #Quote by Meik Wiking
Unhappy quotes by John Meade Falkner
#188. It is sad when man's unhappiness veils from him the smiling face of nature. The promise of the early morning was maintained. The sky was of a translucent blue, broken with islands and continents of clouds, dazzling white like cotton-wool. A soft, warm breeze blew from the west, the birds sang merrily in every garden bush, and Cullerne was a town of gardens, where men could sit each under his own vine and fig-tree. The bees issued forth from their hives, and hummed with cheery droning chorus in the ivy-berries that covered the wall-tops with deep purple. The old vanes on the corner pinnacles of Saint Sepulchre's tower shone as if they had been regilt. Great flocks of plovers flew wheeling over Cullerne marsh, and flashed with a blinking silver gleam as they changed their course suddenly. Even through the open window of the organist's room fell a shaft of golden sunlight that lit up the peonies of the faded, threadbare carpet.

But inside beat two poor human hearts, one unhappy and one hopeless, and saw nothing of the gold vanes, or the purple ivy-berries, or the plovers, or the sunlight, and heard nothing of the birds or the bees. #Quote by John Meade Falkner
Unhappy quotes by Daphne Merkin
#189. There's something stubborn about families, unhappy ones in particular: they outlive themselves, and then they live on. #Quote by Daphne Merkin
Unhappy quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#190. Little other than a red tape Talking-machine, and unhappy Bag of Parliamentary Eloquence. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Unhappy quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#191. Positive social change results mostly from connecting more deeply to the people around you than rising above them, from coordinated rather than solo action. Among the virtues that matter are those traditionally considered feminine rather than masculine, more nerd than jock: listening, respect, patience, negotiation, strategic planning, storytelling. But we like our lone and exceptional heroes, the drama of violence and virtue of muscle, or at least that's what we get, over and over, and from it we don't get much of a picture of how change actually happens and what our role in it might be, or how ordinary people matter. "Unhappy the land that needs heros" is a line of Bertolt Brecht's I've gone to dozens of times, but now I'm more inclined to think, pity the land that thinks it needs a hero, or doesn't know it has lots and what they look like. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Unhappy quotes by Catherine Friend
#192. Would it really be so bad if you slowed your life down even a teensy bit? If you took charge of the ingredients of your food instead of letting corporations stuff you and your family, like baby birds, full of sugar, corn products, chemicals, and meat from really, really unhappy animals? #Quote by Catherine Friend
Unhappy quotes by Nadege Richards
#193. This proves the significance of individualism; being able to face the music, to embrace it, and then create something beautiful from it. You can't truly be happy unless you're unhappy sometimes and the pinnacle of life can only be reached when one can carve their own path. #Quote by Nadege Richards
Unhappy quotes by Roger Ebert
#194. Life always has an unhappy ending, but you can have a lot of fun along the way, and everything doesn't have to be dripping in deep significance. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Unhappy quotes by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
#195. If we start worrying whether our nose is too big or too small, we should think, "What if I had no head? - now that would be a problem!" As long as we have life, we should rejoice. If everything doesn't go exactly as we'd like, we can accept it. If we contemplate impermanence deeply, patience and compassion will arise. We will hold less to the apparent truth of our experience, and the mind will become more flexible. Realizing that one day this body will be buried or burned, we will rejoice in every moment we have rather than make ourselves or others unhappy. #Quote by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
Unhappy quotes by Neil Gaiman
#196. I am the most unhappy soul alive."
"I'd heard it said that fairies have no souls."
"Then do I ache, and bleed, and smart, elsewhere; still, call it soul for it is solely mine. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Unhappy quotes by E. M. Forster
#197. He knew that loneliness was poisoning him, so that he grew viler as well as more unhappy. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Unhappy quotes by Charles Clover
#198. Those who nod sagely and quote the tragedy of the commons in relation to environmental problems from pollution of the atmosphere to poaching of national parks tend to forget that Garrett Hardin revised his conclusions many times over thirty years. He recognized, most importantly, that anarchy did not prevail on the common pastures of midieval England in the way he had described [in his 1968 essay in 'Science']. The commoners--usually a limited number of people with defined rights in law--organized themselves to ensure it did not. The pastures were protected from ruin by the tradition of 'stinting,' which limited each herdsman to a fixed number of animals. 'A managed commons, though it may have other defects, is not automatically subject to the tragic fate of the unmanaged commons,' wrote Hardin, though he was still clearly unhappy with commoning arrangements. As with all forms of socialism, of which he regarded commoning as an early kind, Hardin said the flaw in the system lay in the quality of the management. The problem was alays how to prevent the managers from furthering their own interests. Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Who guards the guardians?

Hardin observed, crucially, that a successful managed common depended on limiting the numbers of commoners, limiting access, and having penalties that deterred.
[...]
None of Hardin's requirements for a successfully managed common is fulfilled by high-seas fishery regimes #Quote by Charles Clover
Unhappy quotes by Anais Nin
#199. All creators are unhappy in life. All creators are absolutists. #Quote by Anais Nin
Unhappy quotes by Donna Goddard
#200. You have to stay out of the game. It's deadly and no one ever wins. Everyone is a loser. Even seeming wins are short-lived and have the taste of bitterness mixed in with the satisfaction of personal gain. The ego is exclusive by nature. While the spirit seeks to include, the ego is unashamedly manipulative in its culling of people. The intention of self-aggrandisement is barely even covered over. The soul does not see people in terms of what it can gain. It seeks to share. It seeks to create by extension of its own and others' true nature. The ego is extremely changeable. It has no stability. Constantly guarding against attack and looking out for its own advantage, its perceptions and thus feelings towards others are ever-shifting. This creates unhappiness. The more we veer away from our true nature, the more unhappy we feel. When we align with our better self, we feel happy again. And so the process continues until the spaces between happiness are not as long and arduous. The presence or absence of personal peace is our barometer. It will guide us even if we are not sure of the way. #Quote by Donna Goddard
