#1. Never, ever, work for bad people - Author: George Lois
Bad People quotes by George Lois
#2. I know the answer to the question now, by the way: why bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. It came from my inner editor, the part of me that forces the wordy writer in me to dump ninety percent of all modifiers: Ask both questions again, minus the adjectives.
"Why do things happen to people?"
Just because. - Author: Chris Crutcher
Bad People quotes by Chris Crutcher
#3. There is something intoxicating about ending a life, about wiping bad people off the face of the earth. But it's also a dark and deadly pull. After all, who am I to decide who lives or dies? - Author: Paula Stokes
Bad People quotes by Paula Stokes
#4. Goodbye" is the best ever gift that you can receive from worse friends. Never hesitate to wave it back. Be bold to say "no" to what always keeps you static! - Author: Israelmore Ayivor
Bad People quotes by Israelmore Ayivor
#5. I don't believe in bad people. I believe that people, somewhere inside, have the potential to realize themselves. - Author: Jim Carrey
Bad People quotes by Jim Carrey
#6. Where I feel something that I had written was misinterpreted in a way that made people feel bad, that is absolutely horrifying to me. I feel so embarrassed and I feel ashamed that I should make people feel bad. - Author: Jesse Eisenberg
Bad People quotes by Jesse Eisenberg
#7. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. After all, you find out the strength of the German army by fighting it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in. We never find out the strength of the evil impulse inside us until we try to fight it: and Christ, because He was the only man who never yielded to temptation, is also the only man who knows to the full what temptation means - the only complete realist.15 - Author: Tad R. Callister
Bad People quotes by Tad R. Callister
#8. Your father always tries to see the good side of people; to find the excuse. But sometimes there isn't a good side. There isn't an excuse.
(Mom - to Lara Lington) - Author: Sophie Kinsella
Bad People quotes by Sophie Kinsella
#9. There are no human gods here, just hoods who think they are. - Author: Fakeer Ishavardas
Bad People quotes by Fakeer Ishavardas
#10. Camera-phones are like nuclear power plants: bad people will turn them into evil, good people will put them to good use. - Author: Philippe Kahn
Bad People quotes by Philippe Kahn
#11. If you live in the midst of bad people, bad books, and bad things, you lose your power of detecting bad thoughts when they come teeming about you like microbes. But if every day you spend an hour on God's mountains or upon the broad sea of the Bible, and get some of God's accurate senses into you, you will be able to detect things which are wrong that other people, even Christians, pass without seeing as wrong. - Author: F.B. Meyer
Bad People quotes by F.B. Meyer
#12. He said only, "Bad people. Some very bad people."
Uncle Chris's mouth flattened into a small, thin line. Then he nodded crisply. He knew all about bad people. John was speaking in a language he understood.
"Is it drugs?" Uncle Chris asked, in a hushed voice.
I looked at John, in his black jeans and T-shirt, with his long dark hair, and studded leather wristbands. I could see why Uncle Chris had asked. To someone of his generation, it would have to be either drugs, or…well, a rock band.
John gave me a barely perceptible shake of his head. No, his eyes begged me. Don't.
"Yes," I said, glancing back at Uncle Chris. "It's drugs."
John's gaze instantly rolled towards the sky.
"Piercey," Uncle Chris said, exhaling gustily and dragging a hand through his hair. "We talked about this. I thought you were the one I didn't have to worry about."
We had talked about something along those lines, I remembered, outside this very house, the night before Jade was killed. But it had been about Uncle Chris giving me driving lessons. I didn't recall drugs being mentioned.
"Well," I said. "Things are a little messed up right now. That's why we're here. I wanted to make sure Alex is okay."
"Alex?" Uncle Chris threw me a look of alarm. "Don't tell me Alex is doing drugs."
I could see now why John had been against lying about the drugs thing. I'd thought it would simplify things. But it was only making them worse.
"He's not," I said quickly. - Author: Meg Cabot
Bad People quotes by Meg Cabot
#13. Music has become my driving force behind my life, it to me, can fix bad moods, bad days, even bad people. It is the beat of my life. - Author: Rian Dawson
Bad People quotes by Rian Dawson
#14. The ultimate tragedy of Birmingham was not the brutality of the bad people, but the silence of the good people. - Author: Martin Luther King, Jr.
Bad People quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#15. Your brother beat him almost to death, Temujin. He held him and kicked him until he cried like a child. He is afraid of you, so he hates you. It would be wrong to hurt him again. It would be like beating a dog after it has loosed it's bladder. The spirit is already broken in him. - Author: Conn Iggulden
Bad People quotes by Conn Iggulden
#16. Before I went to college I read two books. I read a book "Moral Mazes" by Robert Jackall which is a study of how corporations work, and it's actually a fascinating book, this sociologist, he just picks a corporation at random and just goes and studies the middle managers, not the people who do any of the grunt work and not the big decision makers, just the people whose job is to make sure that things day to day get done, and he shows how even though they're all perfectly reasonable people, perfectly nice people you'd be happy to meet any of them, all the things that they were accomplishing were just incredibly evil. So you have these people in this average corporation, they were making decisions to blow out their worker's eardrums in the factory, to poison the lakes and the lagoons nearby, to make these products that are filled with toxic chemicals that poisoned their customers, not because any of them were bad people and wanted to kill their workers and their neighbourhood and their customers, but just because that was the logic of the situation they were in.

Another book I read was a book "Understanding Power" by Noam Chomsky which kind of took the same sort of analysis but applied it to wider society which you know we're in a situation where it may be filled with perfectly good people but they're in these structures that cause them to continually do evil, to invade countries, to bomb people, to take money from poor people and give it to rich people, to do all th - Author: Aaron Swartz
Bad People quotes by Aaron Swartz
#17. Too bad people don't rebuild themselves so easily. - Author: Marjorie M. Liu
Bad People quotes by Marjorie M. Liu
#18. Just because people do bad things in the name of religion doesn't make the religion bad. People do crappy things, people do awesome things. That's just people. - Author: Wendy Mills
Bad People quotes by Wendy Mills
#19. Because sometimes in life, sweetheart. The bad guys win

-Ford 'Blame It on the Pain - Author: Ashley Jade
Bad People quotes by Ashley Jade
#20. I suppose it's too bad people can't be a little more consistent. But if they were, maybe they would stop being people. - Author: Budd Schulberg
Bad People quotes by Budd Schulberg
#21. Bad things happen to good people and Good things happen to bad people..that's just how life is. Yet ... A Great person is the one that will overcome it all! - Author: Timothy Pina
Bad People quotes by Timothy Pina
#22. Because if we the storytellers don't do this, then the bad people will win. - Author: Christiane Amanpour
Bad People quotes by Christiane Amanpour
#23. For most people, the question why be good - as distinguished from merely law abiding - is a simple one. Because God commands it, because the Bible requires it, because good people go to Heaven and bad people go to Hell. - Author: Alan Dershowitz
Bad People quotes by Alan Dershowitz
#24. The bad things don't seem to happen to bad people.'
That's because they already did. There's no original evil left in the world. - Author: Keith Ablow
Bad People quotes by Keith Ablow
#25. God likes to play hide-and-seek, but because there is nothing outside of God, he has no one but himself to play with! But he gets over this difficulty by pretending that he is not himself. This is his way of hiding from himself. He pretends that he is you and I and all the people in the world, all the animals, plants, all the rocks, and all the stars. In this way he has strange and wonderful adventures, some of which are terrible and frightening. But these are just like bad dreams, for when he wakes up they will disappear.

Now when God plays "hide" and pretends that he is you and I, he does it so well that it takes him a long time to remember where and how he hid himself! But that's the whole fun of it-just what he wanted to do. He doesn't want to find himself too quickly, for that would spoil the game. That is why it is so difficult for you and me to find out that we are God in disguise, pretending not to be himself. But- when the game has gone on long enough, all of us will WAKE UP, stop pretending, and REMEMBER that we are all one single Self- the God who is all that there is and who lives forever and ever.
You may ask why God sometimes hides in the form of horrible people, or pretends to be people who suffer great disease and pain. Remember, first, that he isn't really doing this to anyone but himself. Remember too, that in almost all the stories you enjoy there have to be bad people as well as good people, for the thrill of the tale is to find out how the - Author: Alan W. Watts
Bad People quotes by Alan W. Watts
#26. He seems to be making you that way too - enough to tolerate people like him. And once you start tolerating them, you're going to end up being like them yourself. - Author: Patricia Highsmith
Bad People quotes by Patricia Highsmith
#27. It is easy to be a good person when times are good. - Author: Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Bad People quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#28. both of my grandparents had an almost religious faith in hard work and the American Dream. Neither was under any illusions that wealth or privilege didn't matter in America. On politics, for example, Mamaw had one opinion - "They're all a bunch of crooks" - but Papaw became a committed Democrat. He had no problem with Armco, but he and everyone like him hated the coal companies in Kentucky thanks to a long history of labor strife. So, to Papaw and Mamaw, not all rich people were bad, but all bad people were rich. Papaw was a Democrat because that party protected the working people. - Author: J.D. Vance
Bad People quotes by J.D. Vance
#29. Everything beyond getting together felt like a bonus and made everyone feel really relaxed. It's not like people don't scrutinize their own decisions or those of others, of course, but that's both good and bad. - Author: Pontus Winnberg
Bad People quotes by Pontus Winnberg
#30. We should not expect people to be good, but should make it impossible for them to be bad. - Author: Lin Yutang
Bad People quotes by Lin Yutang
#31. People, especially the liberals, just live in this world where if anything is said that offends anybody even a little bit, not only does that person have to apologize; sometimes they have to go away forever. Go away, bad person. My analysis of this is that most of us don't do anything decent in our life. I'm not saying we're evil. I'm just saying we don't make a contribution, so the way they [liberals] think they're making a contribution is to point at the bad people [which] is somehow even more pathetic. - Author: Bill Maher
Bad People quotes by Bill Maher
#32. Frederick Douglass told in his Narrative how his condition as a slave became worse when his master underwent a religious conversion that allowed him to justify slavery as the punishment of the children of Ham. Mark Twain described his mother as a genuinely good person, whose soft heart pitied even Satan, but who had no doubt about the legitimacy of slavery, because in years of living in antebellum Missouri she had never heard any sermon opposing slavery, but only countless sermons preaching that slavery was God's will. With or without religion, good people can behave well and bad people can do evil; but for good people to do evil - that takes religion. - Author: Steven Weinberg
Bad People quotes by Steven Weinberg
#33. We all want to be forgiven. There's a lot of really, really bad people who want to be forgiven but will never be forgiven, and I might be in that camp. - Author: Lance Armstrong
Bad People quotes by Lance Armstrong
#34. Knowlegde no doubt made bad people worse, but it must make good people better! - Author: George MacDonald
Bad People quotes by George MacDonald
#35. People think they are all sort of things they aren't' he had sad. 'They think they are talented when they're not; they think they're powerful when they're actually just bullies; they think they're good when they're bad. People fools themselves all the time, and they don't know that they're fools - Author: Salman Rushdie
Bad People quotes by Salman Rushdie
#36. There is no such thing as bad people. We're all just people who sometimes do bad things. - Author: Colleen Hoover
Bad People quotes by Colleen Hoover
#37. For it is a most extraordinary, though common, phenomenon to find that perfectly virtuous and upright people often like to be thought just a little wicked, whereas bad people are totally indifferent for the most part as to whether or not anyone thinks them good or not. - Author: E.F. Benson
Bad People quotes by E.F. Benson
#38. Is the world really a better place now that nothing is considered bad? People just do what they want, with anyone. How is that different from what animals do in the wild? - Author: Diana Palmer
Bad People quotes by Diana Palmer
#39. There are no "good" or "bad" people. Some are a little better or a little worse, but all are activated more by misunderstanding than malice. - Author: Tennessee Williams
Bad People quotes by Tennessee Williams
#40. There are some bad people on the rise;
they're saving their own skins by ruining people's lives. - Author: Morrissey
Bad People quotes by Morrissey
#41. People are now looking at the world in terms of axis of evil and evil-doers and by logical extension good-doers, and that's a very polarised look at good and bad people. Reality is much more complex than that and people can be good and evil on the very same day. - Author: Mario Van Peebles
Bad People quotes by Mario Van Peebles
#42. People are complicated. People have secrets. It doesn't make them good people or bad people. - Author: David Zayas
Bad People quotes by David Zayas
#43. The most insulting aspect of insincere people is that while they're pretending to be something other than what they are, they're inherently positing a different reality to you. - Author: Daniel V Chappell
Bad People quotes by Daniel V Chappell
#44. As we look around, it's very clear that in this world people do outrageous things to one another all of the time. It's not that these qualities or actions make us bad people, but they bring tremendous suffering if we don't know how to work with them. - Author: Sharon Salzberg
Bad People quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#45. I believe that the Laws of Karma do not apply to show business, where good things happen to bad people on a fairly regular basis. - Author: Chuck Lorre
Bad People quotes by Chuck Lorre
#46. Wouldn't be very fair to the rest of them, would it?" Harper asked. "They're not bad people, most of them. All they want is to be safe."
"Isn't that always a permission slip for ugliness and cruelty? All they want is to be safe, and they don't care who they have to destroy to stay that way. And the people who want to kill us, the Cremation Crews, all they want is safety, too! - Author: Joe Hill
Bad People quotes by Joe Hill
#47. Life takes its path and sometimes there are people to blame. Of course there are bad people in this world. Good, bad, it happens unfortunately. But in a way I think if there was more focus on the good, more good would happen. - Author: Andrea Corr
Bad People quotes by Andrea Corr
#48. Kiefer Sutherland is a crazy jerk on '24,' but you love him because he gets the job done. And I think that that goes for a lot of action stars, I mean Steven Segal is a jerk, but you want to watch him because, eventually, he's a jerk who can beat up bad people. - Author: Paul Scheer
Bad People quotes by Paul Scheer
#49. But he was thankful for the offer and dimly he was beginning to formulate in his mind the feeling that the world is made up of good people and bad people, of selfish people and thoughtful people, of cruel people and kind people, and it was merely a case of luck as to which kind you met when you went on a great adventure. - Author: Gene Stratton-Porter
Bad People quotes by Gene Stratton-Porter
A man told me once that all the bad people
Were needed. Maybe not all, but your fingernails
You need; they are really claws, and we know
Claws. The sharks - what about them?
They make other fish swim faster. The hard-faced men
In black coats who chase you for hours
In dreams - that's the only way to get you
To the shore. Sometimes those hard women
Who abandon you get you to say, "You."
A lazy part of us is like a tumbleweed.
It doesn't move on its own. Sometimes it takes
A lot of Depression to get tumbleweeds moving.
Then they blow across three or four States.
This man told me that things work together.
Bad handwriting sometimes leads to new ideas;
And a careless god - who refuses to let people
Eat from the Tree of Knowledge - can lead
To books, and eventually to us. We write
Poems with lies in them, but they help a little. - Author: Robert Bly
Bad People quotes by Robert Bly
#51. O Karma, Dharma, pudding and pie
O Karma, Dharma, pudding and pie,
gimme a break before I die:
grant me wisdom, will, & wit,
purity, probity, pluck, & grit.
Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, kind,
gimme great abs & a steel-trap mind,
and forgive, Ye Gods, some humble advice
these little blessings would suffice
to beget an earthly paradise:
make the bad people good
and the good people nice;
and before our world goes over the brink,
teach the believers how to think. - Author: Philip Appleman
Bad People quotes by Philip Appleman
#52. No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. After all, you find out the strength of the German army by fighting against it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down.

Bad People quotes by C.S. Lewis
#53. I'm not helping you kill anybody else. It's just not happening. I'm done.""What makes you think you have a choice?""You know why? I'll tell you. Because we were just kissing in the street, and deep down, I don't believe you could actually blow up my house or kill my sister. I just don't, and she's probably not even in the house anymore anyway, so if you want to go in there and shoot somebody, fine, but you're on your own."Gobi paused, seeming to consider all of this. "What is it that you want to hear from me, Perry? Do you want me to tell you that these are bad people that I am killing tonight? Because they are. They are very bad people. They deserve to die, each and every one of them.""Nobody deserves to die.""Oh, really?""Okay, I mean, maybe people like Hitler and Pol Pot . . . dictators, tyrants, African warlords who starve their people into submission . . . but that guy at the bar wasn't an evil man.""How do you know? Because he had drinks with Hemingway?""I just know. - Author: Joe Schreiber
Bad People quotes by Joe Schreiber
#54. Good people died. Bad people lived. And the rest of us had to continue surviving. - Author: Pepper Winters
Bad People quotes by Pepper Winters
#55. And if I may pursue this subject farther I would suggest that the whole matter of imaginative literature depends upon this faculty of seeing the universe, from the aeonian pebble of the wayside to the raw suburban street as something new, unheard of, marvellous, finally, miraculous. The good people
amongst whom I naturally class myself
feel that everything is miraculous; they are continually amazed at the strangeness of the proportion of all things. The bad people, or scientists as they are sometimes called, maintain that nothing is properly an object of awe or wonder since everything can be explained. They are duly punished. - Author: Arthur Machen
Bad People quotes by Arthur Machen
#56. Think about how hard, not to mention ineffective, it would be to stand up in public and say, 'I did something unforgiveable that only a scoundrel would do, yet I'm not a scoundrel and you must forgive me.' It sounds like a paradox, doesn't it? Well, it's one we must embrace if we are to make any progress as a species, because we all do the bad things that only bad people would do, as well as the good things that only good people would do, which is why we mustn't hold anything against one another. If we want better apologies, we need to be more forgiving - it's as simple as that. - Author: Sophie Hannah
Bad People quotes by Sophie Hannah
#57. The judgment day will determine who did what and what did who! - Author: Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Bad People quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#58. We do not come to God as bad people trying to become good people; we come as rebels to lay down our arms. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Bad People quotes by C.S. Lewis
#59. There are no good or bad people in this world; only choices. - Author: David Seller
Bad People quotes by David Seller
#60. Well, people fall in love with the wrong guy all the time, it doesn't make them bad people. - Author: Laurie Holden
Bad People quotes by Laurie Holden
#61. Never borrow the devil's pitchfork for he will surely use it against you. - On Uncomfortable Associations - Author: Lamine Pearlheart
Bad People quotes by Lamine Pearlheart
#62. The moment you feel you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment to absolutely and utterly walk away. - Author: Alysia Harris
Bad People quotes by Alysia Harris
#63. The truth of the world is that in every group you will find some good and some bad people - which is why i am keenly aware that no group is ALL bad, just as no group is ALL good. - Author: Christina Engela
Bad People quotes by Christina Engela
#64. The bad part about being recognized is that when I walk into a restaurant and sit down, I've got to eat everything on the plate, whether it's good or bad. People would take it as an insult if I did otherwise. - Author: Paul Prudhomme
Bad People quotes by Paul Prudhomme
#65. Could it be that Christians, eager to point out how good we are, neglect the basic fact that the gospel sounds like good news only to bad people? - Author: Philip Yancey
Bad People quotes by Philip Yancey
#66. If I believe that only bad people are racist, I will feel hurt, offended, and shamed when an unaware racist assumption of mine is pointed out. If I instead believe that having racist assumptions is inevitable (but possible to change), I will feel gratitude when an unaware racist assumption is pointed out; now I am aware of and can change that assumption. - Author: Robin DiAngelo
Bad People quotes by Robin DiAngelo
#67. Conservatives consider liberals well-intentioned, but misguided. Liberals consider conservatives not only wrong, but really, really bad people. - Author: Larry Elder
Bad People quotes by Larry Elder
#68. The goodness of a person is normally judged based upon how they act towards those whom they consider to be less fortunate than themselves. This has become the standard for measuring the goodness of a person. But this is erroneous. It is in fact very easy to be good to those whom you consider to be less fortunate than yourself. You know what's difficult? Being good to those you envy! That is what's difficult to do! People believe themselves to practice equality because they are good to those who are lesser than they are, but this is not equality if they do not show the same amount of goodness to the people who happen to be more than they are. I always look at how a person treats those who are more than they are, and that is how I determine the goodness in a person. Because the other option is just too easy. The other option comes with all benefit and no loss. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Bad People quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#69. And that was the real truth of it, wasn't it? Whether you were visible or invisible, it was all about how other people reacted to you. Good and bad things happened either way. If you were invisible, bad people couldn't hurt you, that was true. But the good people couldn't help you, either. If you stayed invisible here, did everything you were supposed to and never made waves, you would disappear from the eyes and minds of all the good people out there who could help you get your life back. It was better to be visible. To stand up. To stand out. - Author: Alan Gratz
Bad People quotes by Alan Gratz
#70. History isn't just the story of bad people doing bad things. It's quite as much a story of people trying to do good things. But somehow, something goes wrong. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Bad People quotes by C.S. Lewis
#71. It is easy to love friends and sweethearts. This is selfish love. Higher love embraces enemies and all ugly, bad people. The highest love doesn't see goodness or badness at all. One should even love warmongers, bad food producers and priests. - Author: Michio Kushi
Bad People quotes by Michio Kushi
#72. If it ever seems to us that the world is a place where bad things only happen to good people, it is because we still believe that bad things happening to bad people is a good thing. - Author: Philip K. Jason
Bad People quotes by Philip K. Jason
#73. Good people suddenly don't turn bad. - Author: Greg Gutfeld
Bad People quotes by Greg Gutfeld
#74. Public opinion is a powerful tool, if not the ultimate tool, for changing policies of the seemingly omnipotent political leaders. The greatest danger is an apathy that allows for evil to thrive when bad people rule over us and provoke nationalistic and patriotic fervor that intimidates many into compliance. - Author: Ron Paul
Bad People quotes by Ron Paul
#75. We live in a world where there are dangerous people, there are bad people. - Author: Chuck Hagel
Bad People quotes by Chuck Hagel
#76. Republicans are 'bad people who deserve a two-by-four upside their heads.' - Author: Rahm Emanuel
Bad People quotes by Rahm Emanuel
#77. For 'Breaking Bad,' people were with Walter White for 99% of that show, even though that guy is a monster. - Author: Adam McKay
Bad People quotes by Adam McKay
#78. If more than 10% of the people like a painting, you can be sure it's bad. - Author: George Bernard Shaw
Bad People quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#79. Not to oversimplify it, somebody once said a good rule of thumb in interpreting a character is to find the good in the bad people that you portray and the bad in the good. - Author: Gabriel Byrne
Bad People quotes by Gabriel Byrne
#80. God is the Self of the world, but you can't see God for the same reason that, without a mirror, you can't see your own eyes, and you certainly can't bite your own teeth or look inside your head. Your self is that cleverly hidden because it is God hiding. You may ask why God sometimes hides in the form of horrible people, or pretends to be people who suffer great disease and pain. Remember, first, that he isn't really doing this to anyone but himself. Remember, too, that in almost all the stories you enjoy there have to be bad people as well as good people, for the thrill of the tale is to find out how the good people will get the better of the bad. - Author: Alan W. Watts
Bad People quotes by Alan W. Watts
#81. When good people consider you the bad guy, you develop a heart to help the bad ones. You actually understand them. - Author: Criss Jami
Bad People quotes by Criss Jami
#82. The biggest difference between Jesus Christ and ethical and moral teachers who have been deified by man. Is that these moralists came to make bad people good. Jesus came to make dead people live! - Author: Ravi Zacharias
Bad People quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#83. Up until that point everyone who gets hurt winds up fine. There's not actual loss. And then Voldemort kills Cedric Diggory and suddenly everything becomes real. We have to face the possibility that we won't all live long enough to lose our hair or become those crotchety old folks who yell at dumb kids like us. Good people die and bad people don't always get what they deserve. Death stops being this abstract concept that happens to other people, and becomes something that could happen to the people we love. Or even to us. - Author: Shaun David Hutchinson
Bad People quotes by Shaun David Hutchinson
#84. Things were easier for the old novelists who saw people all of a piece. Speaking generally, their heroes were good through and through, their villains wholly bad. - Author: W. Somerset Maugham
Bad People quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#85. No one is more sentimentalized in America than mothers on Mother's Day, but no one is more often blamed for the culture's bad people and behavior. - Author: Anne Lamott
Bad People quotes by Anne Lamott

Bad People quotes by Joe Hill
#87. He looked at Hector's list and told him that, thanks to a lot of studies and calculations, they'd shown that if you compared yourself to others and didn't find yourself wanting, if you had no money or health problems, if you had friends, a close-knit family, a job you liked, if you were religious and practised your religion, if you felt useful, if you went for a little stroll from time to time, and all of this in a country that was run by not very bad people, where you were taken care of when things went wrong, your chances of bring happy were greatly increased. - Author: Francois Lelord
Bad People quotes by Francois Lelord
#88. Good people care more about people than food. They try to help people and don't give up even when they get hungry. Only bad people give up. But good people fix things. Good people stay good even when it's hard to. Even if they're sick or sad or they have to lose their favorite stuff. Even if they have to die. Good people see past their own fucking lives. They aren't just hunger and math. They aren't just animals. Good people are part of the Higher, good people are fuel for the sun. - Author: Isaac Marion
Bad People quotes by Isaac Marion
#89. If you are good, people will criticize you. If you are bad, people will criticize you. If you are both good and bad, people will still criticize you. Therefore, don't waste your life trying to please anyone. - Author: Matshona Dhliwayo
Bad People quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#90. Reporters tend to find in others what they are suited to find, so there is a whole school of reporting where they are cynical about the world, and everything reinforces that. Whereas I tend to be optimistic and be amused by people and like them, even rather bad people. - Author: Ira Glass
Bad People quotes by Ira Glass
#91. It is true, there are many bad people; there are more of them than in the past, but that is because there are more people, meaning the population has tripled; there must be three times more bad people. - Author: Bhumibol Adulyadej
Bad People quotes by Bhumibol Adulyadej
#92. Any time you make an analogy to horrific people in history, Mussolini or Hitler, people say, 'Oh, you're exaggerating, you're talking about, it's hyperbole.' Maybe it is ... But I would say is that if you are not concerned that democracy could produce bad people, I don't think you're really thinking this through too much. - Author: Rand Paul
Bad People quotes by Rand Paul
#93. Let's face it. There are good people and bad people everywhere. Illiteracy, poor education, wars, greed , corruption and similar factors were responsible for the problems in both India and Pakistan. Religious fanatics benefited from these factors and developed formidable socio-political strongholds in both countries. - Author: Vivek Pereira

Bad People quotes by Malcolm X
#96. I don't believe that if you do good, good things will happen. Everything is completely accidental and random. Sometimes bad things happen to very good people and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But at least if you try to do good things, then you're spending your time doing something worthwhile. - Author: Helen Mirren
Bad People quotes by Helen Mirren
#97. There is a dark side in all of us. And for us 'bad' people, the bad side dominates. I think there is a great sadness in villains, and I have tried to put that across. We cannot stop ourselves doing what we are doing. - Author: Christopher Lee
Bad People quotes by Christopher Lee
#98. If the people of God were to transform the world through fascination, these amazing teachings had to work at the center of these peculiar people. Then we can look into the eyes of a centurion and see not a beast but a child of God, and then walk with that child a couple of miles. Look into the eys of tax collectors as they sue you in court; see their poverty and give them your coat. Look in to the eys of the ones who are hardest for you to like, and see the One you love. For God loves good and bad people. - Author: Shane Claiborne

Bad People quotes by Jacque Fresco
#101. Kiran says (the shelf) is full of stories. If it is, then I like fairy stories. Fairy stories are fair. In them wishes are granted, words are enchanted, the honest and brave make it safely through to the last page and the baddies either have to give up their wickedness for ever and ever, no going back, or get ruthlessly written out of the story, which they hardly ever survive. Also in fairy stories there are hardly any of those half-good half-bad people that crop up so constantly in real life and are so difficult to believe in ... - Author: Hilary McKay

#103. Maybe it's because I'm a little naive, but I do like to think that there aren't really very many truly bad people in the world. I think that everybody has their reasons for what they do, and if you really look through their eyes, you could probably understand them. - Author: Stephenie Meyer

#111. Gratitude: Only when people remember the good others have done for them will they have gratitude. Unfortunately, however, most people remember the bad people have done to them far longer than the good. Or to put it another way, gratitude takes effort; resentment is effortless. - Author: Dennis Prager

#113. Yes, I've changed. I used to believe in everything that you do, maybe even more firmly. But then in Smyrna, Talib-effendi said to me: 'When you see a young man reaching for the sky, grab him by the leg and pull him back down to the ground.' And he pulled me back down to the ground. 'You are destined to live here,' he scolded me. 'So live here! And live as nicely as you can, but without shame. It is better that God ask you: why did you not do that? rather than: why did you do that?"'
"And what are you now?"
"A wanderer on wide roads where I meet good and bad people, who have the same worries and troubles as people do here, who have the same trivial joys as people do everywhere."

Bad People quotes by Mesa Selimovic
#114. My view is there will be problems and bad people as long as the earth exists, and since we're moving into a completely interdependent global environment, we're better off building a world we'd like to live in when the United States are not the only military superpower. That is, we need to build a world of shared responsibility, shared benefits, and shared commitment to our common humanity. - Author: William J. Clinton
Bad People quotes by William J. Clinton
#115. I think you've got good people and bad people in everything you do. If you start making a big deal of it, then it's a problem. It's like in life. We've got bad doctors and lawyers. We've got bad priests! We don't target every priest and say he's bad. You have to go to church and you have to go see some doctors. Some people have to be good. - Author: Master P

Bad People quotes by Marcus Luttrell
#119. Never try to make excuses for people. Sometimes a person might be good, but not be good for you.
Other times, a person's not good because they're just not good - all they bring you is heartaches, misery and all things undeserving. And you need to understand that it's alright for a person to be bad and that not even you can change them, unless they want to. - Author: Temi O’Sola

#122. It's not what we eat or don't eat that makes us good people; it's how we treat one another. As you grow older, you'll find that people of every religion think they're the best, but that's not true. There are good and bad people in every religion. Just because someone is Muslim, Jewish, or Christian doesn't mean a thing. You have to look and see what's in their hearts. That's the only thing that matters, and that's the only detail God cares about. - Author: Firoozeh Dumas
Bad People quotes by Firoozeh Dumas
#123. You can always tell when a town has gone bad. People gather in little groups, talking in low voices. Their postures are taut and awkward. They have the look of those who have been brushed by brutality and do not know how to cope with it - a look of shame, as if they had somehow caused the violence that frightens them. - Author: Patrick Buchanan

#126. Pay no attention to toxic words. What people say is often a reflection of themselves, not you. - Author: Christian Baloga
Bad People quotes by Christian Baloga
#127. People don't walk around thinking of themselves as bad people. You're part of the environment that you grow up in, and there can be decency in that. I always try to find a little glimmer of that, in anything that I do, because you can find places where there's humor or lightness in something that's deep and profound, and that tends to resonate more and make people more human. As an actor and performer, I think it resonates more with the audience when you do have the payoff. - Author: Jimmy Smits
Bad People quotes by Jimmy Smits
#128. There are good people who are dealt a bad hand by fate, and bad people who live long, comfortable, privileged lives. A small twist of fate can save or end a life; random chance is a permanent, powerful player in each of our lives, and in human history as well. - Author: Jeff Greenfield
Bad People quotes by Jeff Greenfield
#129. I don't believe in any actual thinking God that marks the fall of every bird in Australia or every bug in India, a God that records all of our sins in a big golden book and judges us when we die - I don't want to believe in a God who would deliberately create bad people and then deliberately send them to roast in a hell He created-but I believe there has to be something - Author: Stephen King

Bad People quotes by Neil Gaiman
#131. Dave put his head down and ate his eggs. He heard his mother leave the kitchen, humming Old MacDonald all the way down the hall.
Standing in the yard now, knuckles aching, he could hear it too. Old MacDonald had a farm. And everything was hunky-dory on it. You farmed and tilled and reaped and sowed and everything was just fucking great. Everyone got along, even the chickens and the cows, and no one needed to talk about anything, because nothing bad ever happened and nobody had any secrets because secrets were for bad people, people who climbed in cars that smelled of apples with strange men and disappeared for four days, only to come back home and find everyone they'd known had disappeared, too, been replaced with smiley-faced look-alikes who'd do just about anything but listen to you. - Author: Dennis Lehane
Bad People quotes by Dennis Lehane
#132. Life sucked all right. It sucked hard, because it was random and terrifying and too easily lost. Life was full of death cults and psychopaths, bad timing and bad people. Life was broken ... Because you could make one mistake in righteous anger, and lose the person you most loved.
But everything that sucked about life also proved that it was priceless, because otherwise all of that wouldn't hurt so bad. - Author: Scott Westerfeld
Bad People quotes by Scott Westerfeld

#134. If a Martian were watching our television shows, he'd conclude that guns were more common than hammers. They're not evil themselves--they're tools--but everywhere you go, bad people have them. It behooves the righteous to at least know how they work. - Author: John Sandford

Bad People quotes by Don DeLillo
#136. I will gather up a lifetime of things unsaid, write them down, and then offer them all to be lit up for security and burned. All at once.
And then I can watch the whole thing turn to ash. The whole damn thing.
Light the match, and watch it burn.
What a loaded bonfire that would be though, if this gets burned when I finish filling up the whole book.
What a cleansing experience that will be!
If flames could speak, what a story they would tell.
They say that the original bonfires were the burning up of bones. Bad bones. Bad people. Enemies. Turning bones to ash. And it was the burning up of curses and all things bad as well. God knows we have had and still have enemies, and even curses. Real ones. - Author: Suzy Valtsioti

Bad People quotes by Al Franken
#140. Is it a very wicked place?" I asked, more for the sake of saying something than for information.
"You may get cheated, robbed, and murdered in London. But there are plenty of people anywhere, who'll do that for you."
"If there is bad blood between you and them," said I, to soften it off a little.
"O! I don't know about bad blood," returned Mr. Wemmick; "there's not much bad blood about. They'll do it, if there's anything to be got by it."
"That makes it worse."
"You think so?" returned Mr. Wemmick. "Much about the same, I should say. - Author: Charles Dickens

Bad People quotes by Michael Douglas
#142. Plato argued that good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will always find a way around law. By pretending that procedure will get rid of corruption, we have succeeded only in humiliating honest people and provided a cover of darkness and complexity for the bad people. There is a scandal here, but it's not the result of venal bureaucrats.

#148. He overheard the director talking to one of the cameramen. The cameraman was explaining that he couldn't get a good long shot on the exterior because someone had set up a fake graveyard right in the plaza.
"Kids just playing around, I guess, but it's morbid; we'll have to get rid of it, maybe bring in some sod to - "
"No," Albert said.
"We're almost ready for you," the director assured him.
"That's not a fake graveyard. Those aren't fake graves. No one was playing around."
"You're saying those . . . those are actually . . ."
"What do you think happened here?" Albert asked in a soft voice. "What do you think this was?" Absurdly, embarrassingly, he had started to cry. "Those are kids buried there. Some of them were torn apart, you know. By coyotes. By . . . by bad people. Shot. Crushed. Like that. Some of those kids in the ground there couldn't take it, the hunger and the fear . . . some of those kids out there had to be cut down from the ropes they used to hang themselves. Early on, when we still had any animals? I had a crew go out and hunt down cats. Cats and dogs and rats. Kill them. Other kids to skin them . . . cook them up."
There were a dozen crew people in the McDonald's. None spoke or moved.
Albert brushed away tears and sighed. "Yeah. So don't mess with the graves. Okay? Other than that, we're good to go. - Author: Michael Grant
Bad People quotes by Michael  Grant
#149. In that moment, we were all witness to the dark truth that no matter where you are, how safe you feel, there are sometimes bad people looking for an opportunity to do bad things.

Bad People quotes by Watt Key
#150. If the ad is bad people get turned off. That's 125 million potential viewers, so you just killed reach. But there's also a big potential payoff. I think it does pay off because you get a lot of traffic, a lot of free public relations(in media stories). It helps position themselves for the next round of financing. - Author: Charlene Li

Bad People quotes by Kris Noel
#155. Since Aureliano at that time had very confused notions about the difference between Conservatives and Liberals, his father in law gave him some schematic lessons. The Liberals, he said, were Freemasons, bad people, wanting to hang priests, to institute civil marriage and divorce, to recognize the rights of illegitimate children as equal to those of legitimate ones, and to cut the country up into a federal system that would take power away from the supereme authority. The Conservatives, on the other hand, who had received their power directly from God, proposed the establishment of public order and family morality. They were the defenders of the faith of Christ, of the principle of authority, and were not prepared to permit the country to be broken down into autonomous entities. - Author: Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Bad People quotes by Ron Paul
#160. So what you've actually got is traumatized children. When children are traumatized that affects how they feel about themselves, which is deeply ashamed because a child always believe that it is about himself. So if I am being hurt like this, I got to be a terrible person. Or.. if I was sexually abused, why didn't I fight back, I must be a very weak person. So there's a deep sense of shame.

Then there's tremendous emotional pain that accrues from abuse and neglect. Tremendous emotional pain that is hardly possible for people to bear. Now they have to soothe their pain with substances or other compulsive behaviors.

Then the trauma itself, given that the human brain develops in interaction with the environment, shapes the brain circuitry in such a way that the person will be more likely to find relief from the drugs. So the very phisiology of the brain is affected by early trauma.

So then you take these traumatized people and you make their habit illegal... It is not illegal to drink yourself to death. It is not illegal to make yourself sick with emphyzema or lung cancer by means of cigarettes. But it is illegal to use other substances. So now you take these abused, traumatized people you place them outside the law, you put them in jails and you hound them all their lives, treating them like criminals and bad people and failures and rejects and less-than-human. And then we wonder how come they don't get better.

So.. it is a self-perpet - Author: Gabor Mate

#170. The guys were totally skuzzy, grinning horribly, showing holes where teeth should be.
"Boys, God doesn't like you," Fang intoned behind them.
Whaaat? I thought, dumbfounded.
"Wha!" they said, whirling.
At that moment, Fang snapped out his huge wings and shone the penlight under his chin so it raked his cheekbones and eyes. My mouth dropped open. He looked like the angel of death.
His dark wings filled the hallway almost to the ceiling, and he moved them up and down. "God doesn't like bad people," he said, using a really weird, deep voice.
"What the heck?" one of the squatters murmured shallowly, his mouth slack, his eyes bugging out of his head.
I whipped my own wings open. Fun, anyway.
"This was a test," I said, using my best spooky voice. "And guess what? You both failed."
The bums stopped dead, looks of horror and amazement on their faces.
Then Fang growled, "Rowr!" He stepped forward, sweeping his wings up and down: the avenging demon. I almost cracked up.
"Rowr!" I said myself, shaking my wings out.
"Ahhhhh!" the guys yelled, backpedaling fast. Unfortunately, they were standing at the top of the staircase. They fell awkwardly, trying to grab each other, and rolled down two flights like lumpy bags of potatoes, shrieking the whole way.
Fang and I slapped each other a quick high five - and we were out of there, jack. - Author: James Patterson

#173. There are problems connected with infidelity and problems connected with being faithful at any cost, and I am for letting those concerned choose the problems they'd prefer. There need not be one rule for all. Infidelity is enlarging and fragmenting and very very dangerous, but it has been known to retrieve people as well as marriages, so it can't be only bad. - Author: Merle Shain

#179. I am not afraid of people who say all the wrong things that make others gasp in disbelief. I am afraid of the people who say all the right things that make others bow in admiration. It is incredibly easy to say all the right things. We all know exactly what the majority of people want to believe and want to hear. All we have to do is give them what they want, they will bow before us. Anybody can do that. I am more afraid of people who would like to persuade me into admiration, than of people who are simply being people; sinning openly and talking like drunken thieves.

Bad People quotes by Plato
#183. Dr. Wyman preached a God I couldn't quite see in my mind, and certainly couldn't love. I dimly pictured some kind of Grandfather, who dealt out to bad people their awful "just deserts," which I thought must be poisoned food at the end of delicious meals. - Author: John Hersey
Bad People quotes by John Hersey
#184. You can have all the gun control laws in the country, but if you don't enforce them, people are going to find a way to protect themselves. We need to recognize that bad people are doing bad things with these weapons. It's not the law-abiding citizens, it's not the person who uses it as a hobby. - Author: Michael Steele
Bad People quotes by Michael Steele
#185. If you help load a cart you get a ride in it, as often as not. It gives him to think, how bad people are at loading carts. Men trying to walk straight ahead through a narrow gateway with a wide wooden chest. A simple rotation of the object solves a great many problems. - Author: Hilary Mantel
Bad People quotes by Hilary Mantel
#186. None of us are bad people. We float around and we run across each other and we learn about ourselves, and we make mistakes and we do great things. We hurt others, we hurt ourselves, we make others happy and we please ourselves. We can and should forgive ourselves and each other for that. - Author: Dan Harmon
Bad People quotes by Dan Harmon
#187. The accessibility and effective immortality of actual information is a magnificent phenomenon, a beautiful extension of human consciousness. It is too bad people find so many ways to abuse the internet, but that's just how things are. - Author: Marilynne Robinson
Bad People quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#188. In business, there are no bad people. No one comes in to work to do a bad job on purpose. - Author: David E. Wile
Bad People quotes by David E. Wile
#189. Six months have passed since that horrible, horrible event of terrorism in the twin towers and Washington. I hope people all over the world recognize that these bad people, these criminals who committed crimes like that will be shown to the courts, and the people will have justice, and that we all shall work together to prevent these bad people from hurting us again. - Author: Hamid Karzai
Bad People quotes by Hamid Karzai
#190. I come from an intense family - like, we're just intense people. Not bad people or anything, we are just very intense, and I have just always felt like people who weren't like that were just a kind of hiding it, like when I was really young in high school. - Author: Emory Cohen
Bad People quotes by Emory Cohen
#191. In small towns as well as large, good people outnumber bad people by 100 to 1. In big towns the 100 are nervous. But in small towns, it's the one. - Author: Paul Harvey
Bad People quotes by Paul Harvey
#192. You see, Squirt, there's heaven, and then there's hell. Hell is where they send all the bad people, like criminals and con artists and parking inspectors. And heaven is where they send all the good people, like you and me and that nice blonde from MasterChef.

What happens when you get there?

In heaven, you hang out with God and Jimi Hendrix, and you get to eat doughnuts whenever you want. In hell, you have to, uh . . . do the Macarena. Forever. To that "Grease Megamix."

Where do you go if you're good and bad?

What? I don't know. IKEA? - Author: Brooke Davis
Bad People quotes by Brooke Davis
#193. There is an ancient Celtic axiom that says 'Good people drink good beer.' Which is true, then as now. Just look around you in any public barroom and you will quickly see: Bad people drink bad beer. Think about it. - Author: Hunter S. Thompson
Bad People quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#194. Take my word for it: More people will like you if you believe that people are good until proven bad. - Author: Guy Kawasaki
Bad People quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#195. What a lousy earth! He wondered how many people were destitute that same night even in his own prosperous country, how many homes were shanties, how many husbands were drunk and wives socked, and how many children were bullied, abused, or abandoned. How many families hungered for food they could not afford to buy? How many hearts were broken? How many suicides would take place that same night, how many people would go insane? How many cockroaches and landlords would triumph? How many winners were losers, successes failures, and rich men poor men? How many wise guys were stupid? How many happy endings were unhappy endings? How many honest men were liars, brave men cowards, loyal men traitors, how many sainted men were corrupt, how many people in positions of trust had sold their souls to bodyguards, how many had never had souls? How many straight-and-narrow paths were crooked paths? How many best families were worst families and how many good people were bad people? When you added them all up and then subtracted, you might be left with only the children, and perhaps with Albert Einstein and an old violinist or sculptor somewhere. - Author: Joseph Heller
Bad People quotes by Joseph Heller
#196. Bad people often end up as heroes. - Author: Michael Bassey Johnson
Bad People quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#197. Any gun in the hands of a bad man is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a decent person is no threat to anybody - except bad people. - Author: Charlton Heston
Bad People quotes by Charlton Heston
#198. How about if (...) pious people all lived longer than non-pious people? How about when a plane crashes, only the pious people survive? How about Jesus comes when people say he will come? How about people pray for peace, and then all wars in the world stop permanently? How about good things happen excluesively to good people and bad things happen exclusively to bad people? How about an earthquake strikes Lisbon on All Saints Day, while everyone is in Church, as it did in 175, and it kills only people who are not in Church, rather than the tens of thousands of people who were, as what actually happened that fateful morning. These events would trigger serious (scientific) conversation about the existence of God and how he treats people who worship him versus those who do not. - Author: Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Bad People quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#199. Bad people very often do one good thing. - Author: Emma Forrest
Bad People quotes by Emma Forrest
#200. What goes on when people overfetishize safety is that they're relapsing into that old frame of mind that what we're doing is BAD. - Author: Laura Antoniou
Bad People quotes by Laura Antoniou
#201. I had been brought up and trained to have the utmost contempt for people who got drunk - and I would have liked to have the boozing scholars of the Universities wheeled into line and properly chastised for their squalid misuse of what I must ever regard as a gift of the gods. - Author: Winston Churchill
Bad People quotes by Winston Churchill
#202. Whatever your standing in life, the most important thing is behaving in ways that help other people. It's the same with music. I am a servant of the music ... and if I get caught up in ego, I'll lose everything .. it'll burn and that's a guarantee ... - Author: Eric Clapton
Bad People quotes by Eric Clapton
#203. You are the average of the people you spend the most time with. And that's why it's not always where you are in life, but who you have by your side that matters most. Some people drain you and others provide soul food. Spend more time with nice people who are smart, driven and open-minded about personal growth and opportunity. There's no need to rush into a relationship you are unsure of, or socialize with those who hold you back. Be sure to get in the company of those who feed your spirit, and give the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate your presence. - Author: John Geiger
Bad People quotes by John Geiger
#204. In these days of instant gratification and electronic wizardry there are still some people, real people, who do not panic when their telephones fail because the batteries need re-charging. Instead they plug, not into an electronic device but into the earth, feel the wind in their hair, listen to the joyous, constant reaffirmation of running water and feel the good sun or refreshing rain on their skin. They, and only they, can be truly re-charged. - Author: Anonymous
Bad People quotes by Anonymous
#205. And if people do like me, I think it's because I'm a stand-up guy. - Author: David Duval
Bad People quotes by David Duval
#206. People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and ends, but to me it's quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. - Author: Markus Zusak
Bad People quotes by Markus Zusak
#207. Consider, Mighty Creator of all things, the differences between Sindbad's life and mine. Every day I suffer a thousand hardships and misfortunes, and have hard work to get even enough bad barley bread to keep myself and my family alive, while the lucky Sindbad spends money right and left and lives upon the fat of the land! What has he done that you should give him this pleasant life - what have I done to deserve so hard a fate? - Author: Muhsin Mahdi
Bad People quotes by Muhsin Mahdi
#208. While their moral standards for the rest of the world were rigid, they were always able to find excuses for their own shortcomings. It is these people really, said my father, small-time hypocrites, who may in special cases be capable of monstrous acts if given the chance. The Larks, in fact, were shrill opponents of abortion. Yet at the - Author: Louise Erdrich
Bad People quotes by Louise Erdrich
#209. She says Thomas drank himself to death because he felt his talent was waning. Bullshit. Thomas drank himself to death for the same reason that I do: he loved his drink, it lifted him where he belonged, where we all belong, where we all should be if the stream of people weren't such asses and didn't believe in homes and new cars and all that junk. - Author: Charles Bukowski
Bad People quotes by Charles Bukowski
#210. All medical procedures require two hands, so in a sense it's like when you play an instrument. That's what they call things that they use in their work: They call them instruments. A lot of people start out majoring in medicine and drop it and change their major to music. - Author: Tom Waits
Bad People quotes by Tom Waits
#211. Sometimes, the Angel [of Music] leans over the cradle ... and that is how there are little prodigies who play the fiddle at six better than men of fifty, which, you must admit is very wonderful. Sometimes, the Angel comes much later, because the children are naughty and won't learn their lessons or practice their scales. And sometimes, he does not come at all, because the children have a wicked heart or a bad conscience. - Author: Gaston Leroux
Bad People quotes by Gaston Leroux
#212. People on the outside think there's something magical about writing, that you go up in the attic at midnight and cast the bones and come down in the morning with a story, but it isn't like that. You sit in back of the typewriter and you work, and that's all there is to it. - Author: Harlan Ellison
Bad People quotes by Harlan Ellison
#213. I didn't want people to think of me as someone who wasn't impressed with a silver medal, because obviously that's a huge accomplishment, and I was so happy. It was more about me just being not impressed with falling at the Olympics in my last event. - Author: McKayla Maroney
Bad People quotes by McKayla Maroney
#214. I myself don't know what makes my books work. I enter a bookstore and I'm frankly overwhelmed by the number of books in most of them, and I know people are buying mine. - Author: Chetan Bhagat
Bad People quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#215. People come up to me and they're usually nice, but as it goes on you realise that some people aren't nice. Some people are not nice at all. - Author: James McAvoy
Bad People quotes by James McAvoy
#216. Calculating people are contemptable. The reason for this is that calculation deals with loss and gain, and the loss and gain mind never stops. Death is considered loss and life is considered gain. Thus, death is something that such a person does not care for, and he is contemptable. Furthermore, scholars and their like are men who with wit and speech hide their own true cowardice and greed. People often misjudge this. - Author: Yamamoto Tsunetomo
Bad People quotes by Yamamoto Tsunetomo
#217. Margaret Attwood: "I hope that people will finally come to realize that there is only one race – the human race – and that we are all members of it."
Amen to that, I say. (Tom Bryson) - Author: Tom Bryson
Bad People quotes by Tom Bryson
#218. If you can marry a handsome man or a beautiful woman and you have two choices and both people are equally nice or obnoxious, you might as well marry the wealthy one. - Author: Frederick Lenz

#220. If Sara had been a boy and lived a few centuries ago, her father used to say, 'she would have gone about the country with her sword drawn, rescuing and defending everyone in distress. She always wants to fight when she sees people in trouble. - Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett
Bad People quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Bad People quotes by Plautus
#223. Therapists are never "done" with growth, they are simply people who should be dedicated to learning as much about themselves and others as they possibly can. The best therapists are fully human and engage in the struggles of life. Our own failures help us to remain open to the struggles of others; our personal victories give us the optimism and courage to inspire those struggling with their lives. - Author: Louis Cozolino
Bad People quotes by Louis Cozolino
#224. On the mathematical side, you could in principle build a society in which people were fulfilling their needs and flourishing as human beings in a higher way than in a consumer society, provided you had the right investments in the opportunity to flourish in less materialistic ways. - Author: Tim Jackson
Bad People quotes by Tim Jackson
#225. It's revealing, then, to look at modern society through the prism of more than a million years of human cooperation and resource sharing. Subsistence-level hunters aren't necessarily more moral than other people; they just can't get away with selfish behavior because they live in small groups where almost everything is open to scrutiny. - Author: Sebastian Junger
Bad People quotes by Sebastian Junger
#226. They were bound together by a tie which angels may not blush to approve. A man who can attach to him a woman however base in heart and corrupt in life, is not all bad. A woman who can maintain her trust, who can waste her money like water to stand by her friend, amid the darkest clouds that can gather, that woman cannot be all evil. And if in vice, and degradation, and pollution, and infamy, she rises so far above it all as to vindicate her original nature, I must confess that I honor this trait most of all. - Author: Phillip Margulies
Bad People quotes by Phillip Margulies
#227. My house was a guest house of many Jaina saints, Hindu monks, Sufi mystics, because my grandfather was interested in all of these people. - Author: Rajneesh
