I see that a man cannot give himself up to drinking without being miserable one half his days and mad the other. ~ Anne Bronte
Being Miserable quotes by Anne Bronte
We make our days pleasant or miserable. If we insist on being miserable, irritable and nasty, more than likely the day will give us exactly what we give it. A day is too valuable to waste on misery and unhappiness. ~ Iyanla Vanzant
Being Miserable quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
You're giving up. You're slipping into being miserable and if you are being miserable, then it's all about you again. But it's not all about you. Love doesn't work that way. ~ David Levithan
Being Miserable quotes by David Levithan
Sometimes in life, there is time for a change to walk away with your head held high and never look back! You can't change all the people around you, but you can change the people you choose to be around. No relationship is worth being miserable over. Sometimes you just have to erase the messages, delete the numbers, and move on. ~ Charles E Hudson
Being Miserable quotes by Charles E Hudson
Things I learned from a man called "The Nazarene"
1- Being poor does not equal being miserable.
2- People will judge you, but their judgment should not define who you are.
3- Going against what others hold as true is not necessarily a bad thing.
4- Everyone is sacred.
5- Life is sometimes a lonely and dry place, like desert, but those times are there to help us meditate on what is truly important in our lives.
6- Complaining or getting angry because there is a storm in our lives solves nothing; embrace the storm and keep calm.
7- Treasure and protect the children of the world, they hold the key of what is pure and innocent; they are the way to freedom.
8- We are free to be who we want to be, it is our choice to be slaves or kings.
9- Fear nothing.
10- The person you don't like is also your neighbor.
11- The words following "I AM" define who we are, we must choose wisely. ~ Martin Suarez
Being Miserable quotes by Martin Suarez
There's no point in being miserable. If you are then you've brought it on yourself. ~ Virginia Nicholson
Being Miserable quotes by Virginia Nicholson
I have to feel that I'm going somewhere all the time. By definition, if you have this urge to go places, then you can't be 100 percent happy where you are. It's not like I enjoy being miserable for weeks on end. But I think it's good to be miserable for about one day every third week - that's ideal for me. ~ Jo Nesbo
Being Miserable quotes by Jo Nesbo
I'm free of stress and worries now because if I don't like something I'm doing, I just find the fun in it instead of being miserable. Let me have fun with the people I work with, let me have fun making money - when I grew up so poor, ya know? ~ Jenny McCarthy
Being Miserable quotes by Jenny McCarthy
You can't do anything for a person who is stuck between being happy and being miserable. All you can do is get trapped in the middle, and anyone in the middle just gets squished.' -Grandma ~ Jack Gantos
Being Miserable quotes by Jack Gantos
I think the difference between being miserable and finding happiness is just a matter of perspective. If you live your life defining yourself by what other people think of you, it's a form of self-torture. ~ Sarah Silverman
Being Miserable quotes by Sarah Silverman
I think books were my salvation, they saved me from being miserable. ~ Amy Tan
Being Miserable quotes by Amy Tan
On The Great Gatsby: Fifteen-year-olds can really get behind an essay on what green light means, which is good, because they sure as heck won't relate to any of the characters, who are all huge jerks with enough money to be wasted most of the time on top of being miserable. ~ Kate Beaton
Being Miserable quotes by Kate Beaton
It's never like we're up there being miserable at work, that's not something that happens for us. We love our work. So, when the performer loves what they're doing, it's easy for us to love what we're doing. ~ Jennifer Abbott
Being Miserable quotes by Jennifer Abbott
George Bernard Shaw was right. He summed it all up when he said: "The secret of being miserable is to have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not." So don't bother to think about it! Spit on your hands and get busy. Your blood will start circulating; your mind will start ticking-and pretty soon this whole positive upsurge of life in your body will drive worry from your mind. Get busy. Keep busy. It's the cheapest kind of medicine there is on this earth-and one of the best. ~ Dale Carnegie
Being Miserable quotes by Dale Carnegie
Life is short, and I'd rather be sitting in the poor house doing what I love doing than making a lot of money and being miserable. Life is very short. ~ Amber Benson
Being Miserable quotes by Amber Benson
It would seem that losing the sadness would be a good thing, but it has been replaced by nothing -a quiet acceptance of this boring, everyday life. I think it's even worse than being miserable. At least being miserable is active. ~ Samantha Schutz
Being Miserable quotes by Samantha Schutz
Most sapients confuse working hard with being miserable. ~ Becky Chambers
Being Miserable quotes by Becky Chambers
Soe of us are infinitely better at being miserable than happy. ~ Anne Rice
Being Miserable quotes by Anne Rice
People waste far too much of their lives being miserable. If you love someone, if you truly love them - tell them, show them. Never let go completely. Never abandon hope. Because at the end of the day, that's all the future really is to anyone. We live in hope. ~ Avie Bennett
Being Miserable quotes by Avie Bennett
I adore you' she said. 'When you go, I'll cry. But I'm not going to spoil today by being miserable about tomorrow ~ Ken Follett
Being Miserable quotes by Ken Follett
If some area of your life sucks - do something else. Life is too short - and too long - to spend it being miserable. Life may indeed be short but it is for a fact wide. It is high time we started settling for more. ~ Jill Conner Browne
Being Miserable quotes by Jill Conner Browne
I think we'll always miss our parents. But I think we can miss them without being miserable all the time. After all, they wouldn't want us to be miserable. ~ Lemony Snicket
Being Miserable quotes by Lemony Snicket
The greatness of man is great in that he knows himself to be miserable. A tree does not know itself to be miserable. It is then being miserable to know oneself to be miserable; but it is also being great to know that one is miserable. ~ Blaise Pascal
Being Miserable quotes by Blaise Pascal
And once Father Lucas said to me, 'Be simple, Matthew, life is a simple book, and an open book, read and be simple as the beasts in the field; just being miserable isn't enough
you've got to know how.' So I got to thinking and I said to myself, 'This is a terrible thing that Father Lucas has put on me
be simple like the beasts and yet think and harm nobody. ~ Djuna Barnes
Being Miserable quotes by Djuna Barnes
When I am happy at work, I tend to be happy in life. And when my work is a struggle, it negatively taints my entire outlook and existence. Anyone can relate to being miserable at work, and each of us can stand to improve his or her relationship with work. ~ Julie Clow
Being Miserable quotes by Julie Clow
I'm bored of it all being miserable. I just want something to change. There's nothing wrong with that is there? ~ Sharon Duggal
Being Miserable quotes by Sharon Duggal
When your options are limited to being miserable in private or being mortified in public, there is no choice. I can't get on the plane. ~ Julie Murphy
Being Miserable quotes by Julie   Murphy
The fact that you are even here, alive, on this planet is a mathematical miracle, and you should not spend the time that you have being busy being miserable. ~ Philip DeFranco
Being Miserable quotes by Philip DeFranco
You can't worry about what other people think you should do. The only way you'll ever be happy or make a real difference is by pursuing the things that motivate you and make you excited to be alive. Life is too short to waste years of it being miserable or asking 'What if? ~ Dana Bate
Being Miserable quotes by Dana Bate
If selfishness is the key to being miserable, then selflessness must be the key to being happy! ~ Joyce Meyer
Being Miserable quotes by Joyce Meyer
The only way to avoid being miserable is not to have enough leisure to wonder whether you are happy or not. ~ George Bernard Shaw
Being Miserable quotes by George Bernard Shaw
The church teaches us that we can make God happy by being miserable ourselves. ~ Robert Green Ingersoll
Being Miserable quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
In his opinion, humans were best when miserable, and so he had worked at being miserable his whole life, and in his generous way tried to make as many people miserable as possible. ~ Rodman Philbrick
Being Miserable quotes by Rodman Philbrick
Money can't buy happiness, but it can make you awfully comfortable while you're being miserable. ~ Clare Boothe Luce
Being Miserable quotes by Clare Boothe Luce
We were Dex and Perry and our relationship seemed to thrive on the universe being out of order. Either that or our relationship actually caused the world to turn upside down. It was hard to say. ~ Karina Halle
Being Miserable quotes by Karina Halle
A man cannot live intensely except at the cost of the self. Now the bourgeois treasures nothing more highly than the self (rudimentary as his may be). And so at the cost of intensity he achieves his own preservation and security. His harvest is a quiet mind which he prefers to being possessed by God, as he does comfort to pleasure, convenience to liberty, and a pleasant temperature to that deathly inner consuming fire. The bourgeois is consequently by nature a creature of weak impulses, anxious, fearful of giving himself away and easy to rule. Therefore, he has substituted majority for power, law for force, and the polling booth for responsibility. ~ Hermann Hesse
Being Miserable quotes by Hermann Hesse
Being human is difficult. Some people make it more difficult than others. I was one of those people. ~ Lana Del Rey
Being Miserable quotes by Lana Del Rey
Being able to take care of myself is something that my mom really instilled in me. ~ Stevie Nicks
Being Miserable quotes by Stevie Nicks
The other half, Lost Tokyo-1, has not been located yet, although presumably it exists out there somewhere in the universe, a mega-demi-city of eighty-five million people, a city fractured, cracker in half, torn, ripped not cleanly, but shredded, ragged, ripped along living rome, plans, meetings, dates, conjugal beds in prisons, family dinner tables, secrets being whispered into ears, couples holding hands, separated in an instant without warning or explanation, leaving two halves, bewildered, speaking Japanese to instant neighbours from the other side of the world, unable to understand what has happened, or if things will ever go back to the way they were, hoping its other half might someday find its way back. ~ Charles Yu
Being Miserable quotes by Charles Yu
Incomplete," he says. "If I'm whole, why do I feel like I'm not?" And as usual, Roberta has a calming platitude intended to ease his mind, but as time goes on her rote wisdom leaves him flat and disappointed.

"Wholeness comes from creating experiences that are solely yours, Cam," she tells him. "Live your life and soon you'll find the lives of those who came before won't matter. Those who gave rise to you mean nothing compared to what you are."

But how can he live his life when he's not convinced he has one? The attacks in the press conference still plague him. If a human being has a soul, then where is his? And if the human soul is indivisible, then how can his be the sum of the parts of all the kids who gave rise to him? He's not one of them, he's not all of them, so who is he?

His questions make Roberta impatient. "I'm sorry," she tells him, "but I don't deal in the unanswerable."

"So you don't believe in souls?" Cam asks her.

"I didn't say that, but I don't try to answer things that don't have tangible data. If people have souls, then you must have one, proved by the mere fact that you're alive."

"But what if there is no 'I' inside me? What if I'm just flesh going through the motions, with nothing inside?"

Roberta considers this, or at least pretends to. "Well, if that were the case, I doubt you'd be asking these questions." She thinks for a moment. "If you must have a construct, then think of it ~ Neal Shusterman
Being Miserable quotes by Neal Shusterman
One of the best places for efficiency is being efficient with things so that you can be effective with people. If ~ Matt Perman
Being Miserable quotes by Matt Perman
Statistically, 2012 was the safest year to travel on a plane, in the history of aviation. Not one major passenger plane crashed. It's pretty amazing. And when you see them being taken apart and you see the work that goes into keeping those things in the air, you think, "Wow!" ~ Dallas Campbell
Being Miserable quotes by Dallas Campbell
We have the choice of two identities: the external mask which seems to be real ... and the hidden, inner person who seems to us to be nothing, but who can give himself eternally to the truth in whom he subsists. (295) ~ Thomas Merton
Being Miserable quotes by Thomas Merton
When students have thanked me in the past for being their teacher, I have always felt that it was actually my love for the art of teaching they were speaking to. ~ Taylor Mali
Being Miserable quotes by Taylor Mali
A restlessness has seized hold of many of us, a sense that we should be doing something else, no matter what we are doing, or doing at least two things at once, or going to check some other medium. It's an anxiety about keeping up, about not being left out or getting behind. ~ Rebecca Solnit
Being Miserable quotes by Rebecca Solnit
I like being a musician that's also a fly on the wall. I like people coming in the room and doing what they do and then leaving. I like attention, but it actually gives me a little less to work with as a performer if people are editing themselves and not being them. ~ Travis Morrison
Being Miserable quotes by Travis Morrison
Devotion is a way of being, it's not something you do. It's dedication to finding awareness and Love. Chanting is like asanas for the mind and the heart. ~ Krishna Das
Being Miserable quotes by Krishna Das
Vanity, I am sensible, is my cardinal vice and cardinal folly; and I am in continual danger, when in company, of being led an ignis fatuus chase by it. ~ John Adams
Being Miserable quotes by John Adams
The world," said Pavone, "will swing to the left. The whole world except America. The world will swing, not because people read Karl Marx, or because agitators will come out of Russia, but because, after the war is over, that will be the only way they can turn. Everything else will have been tried, everything else will have failed. And I am afraid that American will be isolated, hated, backward, we will all be living there like old maids in a lonely house in the woods, locking the doors, looking under the beds, with a fortune in the mattress, not being able to sleep, because every time the wind blows and a floor creaks, we will think the murderers are breaking in to kill us and take our treasure ... ~ Irwin Shaw
Being Miserable quotes by Irwin Shaw
I could never have done what I did without being involved with Lindsay Kemp's company. ~ David Bowie
Being Miserable quotes by David Bowie
The chaplain has a good life, an easy life. He is well educated, modestly
well-to-do, and awkwardly handsome. He has faced no particularly compelling
struggle, aside from frequently being dumped by women he wished to marry. His
friends and family are in good health. And, sometimes, when one is not blessed
with crisis, one must manufacture it. ~ John Green
Being Miserable quotes by John Green
Offended you again," her godmother said with satisfaction. "Come along, then. We'll go to my chambers. The butler put me in one of the towers, and it's utterly heavenly, like being stuck in the clouds except for the pigeons crapping on the windows. ~ Eloisa James
Being Miserable quotes by Eloisa James
She CAN'T say it. To tell someone who cares about you that you're being teased is really hard to do. I…couldn't say it either. But after a while my mom found out and then…I would apologize to her like I was stupid. I would feel so pathetic. I would think that I was so pathetic for being teased. I was ashamed when my mom found out. I wondered…what would I do if she started to hate me? I was so scared. I was so scared I didn't want anyone to know I was like that. I would desperately make up stories to try and hide it. And then I'd feel even more pathetic and ashamed so when mom told me, "It's okay" I was so relieved. When she told me, "There's nothing to be ashamed of." I was so relieved that I started crying again. Kisa-san might be feeling the same way. She didn't want you to hate her. It's because she loves you…that she couldn't tell you. ~ Natsuki Takaya
Being Miserable quotes by Natsuki Takaya
The three branches of government number considerably more than three and are not, in any sense, 'branches' since that would imply that there is something they are all attached to besides self-aggrandizement and our pocketbooks ... Government is not a machine with parts; it's an organism. When does an intestine quit being an intestine and start becoming an asshole? ~ P. J. O'Rourke
Being Miserable quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
That was the moment I knew I'd have to do this thing alone. This thing being life. ~ Anonymous
Being Miserable quotes by Anonymous
I'm still picking pockets
I just do it as legally as I can. Being married to a cop limits certain activities. ~ J.D. Robb
Being Miserable quotes by J.D. Robb
Women like bad boys ... Being a good boy never worked for me. ~ Jude Law
Being Miserable quotes by Jude Law
we are made to follow leaders who can gather people together because the advantages of being in groups trump the disadvantages of being alone. It has been more profitable for us to bind together in the wrong direction than to be alone in the right one. Those who have followed the assertive idiot rather than the introspective wise person have passed us some of their genes. This is apparent from a social pathology: psychopaths rally followers. Once ~ Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Being Miserable quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
What is more miserable than discontent? ~ William Shakespeare
Being Miserable quotes by William Shakespeare
Thank you, always say thank you; it's the greatest gift you can give someone; because thank you is what you say to God. ~ Maya Angelou
Being Miserable quotes by Maya Angelou
My singing silenced the bullies, but better than that, it silenced the demons inside me. When you're jeered at, told to shut up, sit still, stop being silly, there's a cacophony of noise rolling around in your head. When I was singing, it was peaceful. ~ Susan Boyle
Being Miserable quotes by Susan Boyle
Only a few good leaders have paused to reflect seriously on being leaders. ~ P. J. O'Rourke
Being Miserable quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
One that has well digested his knowledge both of books and men, has little enjoyment but in the company of a few select companions. He feels too sensibly, how much all the rest of mankind fall short of the notions which he has entertained. And, his affections being thus confined within a narrow circle, no wonder he carries them further than if they were more general and undistinguished. The gaiety and frolic of a bottle companion improves with him into a solid friendship; and the ardours of a youthful appetite become an elegant passion. ~ David Hume
Being Miserable quotes by David Hume
Creation is bringing potential into being, bringing inspiration into action. Inspiration and action are nothing when they are apart. Inspiration feels like a great a wondrous thing, but if it is not manifested, it is as if it never existed. Likewise, action without inspiration has no purpose. It is only when they are together as one that they are truly something. ~ Kristi Bowman
Being Miserable quotes by Kristi Bowman
I don't like being out in public too much. I don't like going to bars. I don't like doing celebrity stuff. ~ Adam Sandler
Being Miserable quotes by Adam Sandler
I've never been a very lonely person. I'm very good at being on my own. But after I met him, I lost a bit of that. It was like he helped me find some whole new section of my heart, one I didn't even know existed before. One for just him to fill. And when he wasn't there to do it, I felt his absence so keenly. I suppose this sounds very cliché and silly.
It's not that I didn't want to fall in love someday. I did. I'm quite romantic, although I don't know if it shows very much. But it seemed like such an abstract idea before. And something of an impossible one. And then I met him, and he was real, and it was all so unsettling and wonderful. But it's still very hard business to really let yourself fall, I think. Especially when you've come to feel like it's something you aren't cut out for.
But he was very patient with me, and I just really, really did love him. Eventually it came to seem worth all of the struggle. -- Emily ~ Hannah Johnson
Being Miserable quotes by Hannah  Johnson
Good taste has everything to do with being cultured and being refined, and if art has to do with anything, it has to do with being human. ~ Rich Mullins
Being Miserable quotes by Rich Mullins
I try to craft books that are fun, that are sort of subversively educational so kids learn but they don't really feel like they're being lectured to, and I want kids to always finish one of my books and think, "That was great, where's the next one?" ~ Rick Riordan
Being Miserable quotes by Rick Riordan
They call me eccentric. They used to call me nuts. I haven't changed. The only difference between being eccentric and being nuts is the number of security boxes you own. ~ Al McGuire
Being Miserable quotes by Al McGuire
Knowledge is being applied to knowledge itself. It is now fast becoming the one factor in production, sidelining both capital and labour. ~ Peter Drucker
Being Miserable quotes by Peter Drucker
The ego is your enemy, not your friend. It is the ego that gives you wounds and hurts you. It is the ego that makes you violent, angry, jealous, competitive. It is the ego that is continuously comparing and feeling miserable. ~ Rajneesh
Being Miserable quotes by Rajneesh
The trick of the internet, I had learned, was not being unapologetically yourself or completely unfiltered; it was mastering the trick of appearing that way. It was spiking your posts with just the right amount of real... which meant, of course, that you were never being real at all. ~ Jennifer Weiner
Being Miserable quotes by Jennifer Weiner
In hierarchal organizations, the boss is a supreme being. In tribal organizations, the boss is just another worker. ~ Daniel Quinn
Being Miserable quotes by Daniel Quinn
I have a habit of being an archaeologist of my own past, a sentimental collector of personal artefacts which may at first glance appear random, but each of which holds a unique significance. As the years pass me by, I find that the number of objects within my possession begins to accumulate. A torn map. A sealed letter. A boat full of paper animals. Each item encapsulates within itself a story, akin to an outward manifestation of my inner journey. ~ Agnes Chew
Being Miserable quotes by Agnes Chew
I don't miss the bureaucracy of being in the Army. But I still love the relationships you can build. And it doesn't have to be in military service - it can be anything you're doing with someone that matters. You develop a bond. ~ Stanley A. McChrystal
Being Miserable quotes by Stanley A. McChrystal
As long as one makes some kind of conscious state, whether a "passive sensation" or an "apprehended", come before reality, one will remain more or less in debt to the idealist method. The realist method pursues an exactly opposite course. Every given reality implies the thought which apprehends it. Therefore being is the condition of knowing; knowing is not the condition of being. When this has been established, another step in the direction of metaphysics can be taken. ~ Etienne Gilson
Being Miserable quotes by Etienne Gilson
Julian expected to be full of love and lust, and consequently usually was. He had an inconvenient habit of watching himself from a distance, and wondering whether the love and lust were strained and faked. He was afraid of being isolated and solitary, which he feared was his fate. He was certainly not himself an object of desire to other boys, as far as he knew - and he was knowing. ~ A.S. Byatt
Being Miserable quotes by A.S. Byatt
My son is really good at being on trips with me. He understands what's going on. He grew up with me modeling, so it's quite normal for him to be on a shoot and in pictures because he sees me doing it. ~ Arizona Muse
Being Miserable quotes by Arizona Muse
He watched with an attentiveness both polite and flattering as Maura scraped her cards up from the sofa cushions. He leaned to pick up one she had missed.
"This fellow looks unhappy," he observed. The art depicted a man stuck with ten swords. The victim lay on his face, as most people did after being stuck with ten swords.
"That's a fellow after Calla's done with him," Maura said. ~ Maggie Stiefvater
Being Miserable quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
The social order will be all the more stable, the more it takes this fact into account and does not place in opposition personal interest and the interests of society as a whole, but rather seeks ways to bring them into fruitful harmony. In fact, where self-interest is violently suppressed, it is replaced by a burdensome system of bureaucratic control which dries up the wellsprings of initiative and creativity. When people think they possess the secret of a perfect social organization which makes evil impossible, they also think that they can use any means, including violence and deceit, in order to bring that organization into being. Politics then becomes a "secular religion" which operates under the illusion of creating paradise in this world. ~ Pope John Paul II
Being Miserable quotes by Pope John Paul II
A normal human being ... does not exist. ~ Karen Horney
Being Miserable quotes by Karen Horney
