#1. Theories:
*During the off-months for the visitors, which are the on-months for the oysters, are the oysters packed in ice or tinned, and shipped to Paris?

*During the off-months for the visitors, which are the on-months for the oysters, do the serving staff shuck shells?
Or
*During the off-months for the visitors, which are the on-months for the oysters, are the restaurant, and the oysters, abandoned, and the staff laid off? - Author: Joanna Walsh
Severe Boredom quotes by Joanna Walsh
#2. What matters is entertainment. Eternity takes forever. The infinite expanse of time just does not know when to quit. The dead fear boredom the way mortals fear death. - Author: Catherynne M Valente
Severe Boredom quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#3. Now the best relation to our spiritual home is to be near enough to love it. But the next best is to be far enough away not to hate it. It is the contention of these pages that while the best judge of Christianity is a Christian, the next best judge would be something more like a Confucian. The worst judge of all is the man now most ready with his judgements; the ill-educated Christian turning gradually into the ill-tempered agnostic, entangled in the end of a feud of
which he never understood the beginning, blighted with a sort of hereditary boredom with he knows not what, and
already weary of hearing what he has never heard. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Severe Boredom quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#4. If people knew how badly animals were treated in today's factory farms, if people knew how completely confined and immobilized these creatures are for their entire lives, if people knew how severe and unrelenting is the cruelty these animals are forced to endure, there would be change. If people knew. But too many of us choose to look the other way, to keep the veil in place, to remain unconscious and caught in the cultural trance. That way we are more comfortable. That way is convenient. That way we don' t have to risk too much. This is how we keep ourselves asleep. - Author: John Robbins
Severe Boredom quotes by John Robbins
#5. There was no reason to wonder at the matter, since this way of punishing thieves was neither just in itself nor good for the public; for, as the severity was too great, so the remedy was not effectual; simple theft not being so great a crime that it ought to cost a man his life; no punishment, how severe soever, being able to restrain those from robbing who can find out no other way of livelihood. In - Author: Thomas More
Severe Boredom quotes by Thomas More
#6. Both in their origins and effects, boredom and stuffy air resemble each other. They are usually generated whenever a large number of people gather together in a closed room. - Author: Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Severe Boredom quotes by Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
#7. The more severe the pain or illness, the more severe will be the necessary changes. These may involve breaking bad habits, or acquiring some new and better ones. - Author: Peter McWilliams
Severe Boredom quotes by Peter McWilliams
#8. One source of frustration in the workplace is the frequent mismatch between what people must do and what
people can do. When what they must do exceeds their capabilities, the result is anxiety. When what they must do falls short of their capabilities,
the result is boredom. But when the
match is just right, the results can be glorious. This is the essence of flow. - Author: Daniel H. Pink
Severe Boredom quotes by Daniel H. Pink

Severe Boredom quotes by Ryuk
#10. Life wants so very much to live. - Author: Timothy Simpson
Severe Boredom quotes by Timothy Simpson
#11. And there is no harm in loving a stranger. In fact, it is more exciting to love a stranger. When you were not together, there was great attraction. The more you have been together, the more the attraction has become dull. The more you have become known to each other, superficially, the less is the excitement. Life becomes very soon a routine. People go on repeating the same thing, again and again. If you look at the faces of people in the world, you will be surprised: Why do all these people look so sad? Why do their eyes look as if they have lost all hope? The reason is simple; the reason is repetition. Man is intelligent; repetition creates boredom. Boredom brings a sadness because one knows what is going to happen tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow ... until one goes into the grave, it will be the same, the same story. Finkelstein - Author: Osho
Severe Boredom quotes by Osho
#12. Twice Flush had done his utmost to kill his enemy; twice he had failed. And why had he failed, he asked himself? Because he loved Miss Barrett. Looking up at her from under his eyebrows as she lay, severe and silent on the sofa, he knew that he must love her for ever. Things are not simple but complex. If he bit Mr. Browning he bit her too. Hatred is not hatred; hatred is also love. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Severe Boredom quotes by Virginia Woolf
#13. Do you know what nearly all the sociologists say today in their study of young people? The greatest problem facing young people today is not sex - it is boredom. - Author: Billy Graham
Severe Boredom quotes by Billy Graham

Severe Boredom quotes by Sarah Waters

Severe Boredom quotes by Billy Joel
#17. Most of us seek security of some kind because our lives are an endless conflict, from the moment we are born to the moment we die. The boredom of life and the anxiety of life; the despair of existence; the feeling that you want to be loved, and you are not loved; the shallowness, the pettiness, the travail of everyday existence - that is our life. In that life there is danger, there is apprehension; nothing is certain; there is always the uncertainty of tomorrow. So you are all the time pursuing security, consciously or unconsciously; you want to find a permanent state, psychologically first and outwardly afterwards - it is always psychological first, not outward. You want a permanent state where you will not be disturbed by anything, by any fear, by any anxiety, by any sense of uncertainty, by any sense of guilt. That is what most of us want. That is what most of us seek outwardly as well as inwardly. - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Severe Boredom quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#18. The increasing frequency of extreme weather events, droughts and floods is in line with what climate scientists have been predicting for decades - and evidence is mounting that what's happening is more severe than predicted, and will get far worse still if we fail to act. - Author: David Suzuki
Severe Boredom quotes by David Suzuki
#19. A few minutes later, a very slim, very directed black-haired woman with olive skin and a classic profile swept into the room. Her hair was pulled back in a bun. She was the executive assistant version of the beautiful librarian cliché. Severe suit, abrupt manner, glasses perched on her nose and secured on a no-nonsense chain around her neck. But you knew when she took those specs off and let down her hair, the results would be dazzling. - Author: Stephen J. Cannell
Severe Boredom quotes by Stephen J. Cannell
#20. No longer was a defection, a leaked document, or some other treasonous act a prerequisite for being deemed an SP, though only serious offenses like those would seem to merit such severe condemnation. It meant, after all, expulsion from the church and the loss of salvation - a severe penalty. But now anyone who expressed even the smallest criticism of church policy or leadership was in danger of being cast out. - Author: Janet Reitman
Severe Boredom quotes by Janet Reitman
#21. The presidency has many problems, but boredom is the least of them. - Author: Richard M. Nixon
Severe Boredom quotes by Richard M. Nixon
#22. Only with severe need did the hyphae curl around the alga; only when the alga was stressed did it welcome the advances. When times are easy and there's plenty to go around, individual species can go it alone. But when conditions are harsh and life is tenuous, it takes a team sworn to reciprocity to keep life going forward. - Author: Robin Wall Kimmerer
Severe Boredom quotes by Robin Wall Kimmerer
#23. Boredom is a form of evil; perhaps one of Kierkegaard's characters was more correct when he said, "Boredom is the root of all evil." Boredom is a preview of death, if not itself a form of death, and when trapped in prolonged boredom, even the most saintly of us will hope for, pray for, or even engineer relief, however demonic. - Author: Fred B. Craddock
Severe Boredom quotes by Fred B. Craddock
#24. The most costly disease is boredom costly for both individual and society. - Author: Norman Cousins
Severe Boredom quotes by Norman Cousins
#25. Don't bring an anchor, on a sinking boat. - Author: Anthony Liccione
Severe Boredom quotes by Anthony Liccione
#26. No one worried except a few philosophers. The race was too intent upon savoring its new-found freedom to look beyond the pleasures of the present. Utopia was here at last: its novelty had not yet been assailed by the supreme enemy of all Utopias - boredom. Perhaps - Author: Arthur C. Clarke
Severe Boredom quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#27. Sooner barbarity than boredom. - Author: Theophile Gautier
Severe Boredom quotes by Theophile Gautier
#28. The only activity a cynic will find contagious is yawning, that is, with other people, at other people. - Author: Criss Jami
Severe Boredom quotes by Criss Jami
#29. She looked away. "I'm well now."

She wasn't; she was suffering from severe stubbornness. - Author: Evie Dunmore
Severe Boredom quotes by Evie Dunmore
#30. You would keep the people in their hopeless squalid misery? you would fill those infamous prisons again with the noblest spirits in the land? you would thrust the rising sun of liberty back into the sea of blood from which it has risen? And all because there was in the middle of the dirt and ugliness and horror a little patch of court splendor in which you could stand with a few orders on your uniform, and yawn day after day and night after night in unspeakable boredom until your grave yawned wider still, and you fell into it because you had nothing better to do. How can you be so stupid, so heartless? - Author: Anonymous
Severe Boredom quotes by Anonymous
#31. Women in troubled marriages frequently try to work out their problems through their children. Whether a woman does this through the extremes of overwhelming demands, severe rejection, or smothering control, the results are the same: the boy becomes too dependent on her. Without realizing it, in adulthood he transfers this dependency, as well as the conflicts and fears that go with it, onto the woman in his life. The misogynist saw his mother as having the power to frustrate him, to withhold love from him, to smother him, to make him feel weak, or to make insatiable demands on him - and he now views his partner as having those same powers. The father who doesn't provide his son with any alternative to his mother's influence leaves the boy alone with his fears and his panicky feelings of vulnerability and neediness. - Author: Susan Forward
Severe Boredom quotes by Susan Forward
#32. A man needs an antidote to boredom. A man needs ambition.

To do what? - Author: Emma Jane Holloway
Severe Boredom quotes by Emma Jane Holloway
#33. Boredom is nothing but the experience of a paralysis of our productive powers. - Author: Erich Fromm
Severe Boredom quotes by Erich Fromm
#34. I'd always worried about being practically empty, about having no serious reason for living. And now, confronted with the facts, I was sure of my individual nullity. In that environment, too different from the one where my petty habits were at home, I seem to have disintegrated, I felt very close to nonexistence. I discovered that with no one to speak to me of familiar things, there was nothing to stop me from sinking into irresistible boredom, a terrifying, sickly sweet torpor. Nauseating. - Author: Louis Ferdinand Celine
Severe Boredom quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#35. Is boredom anything less than the sense of one's faculties slowly dying? - Author: John Berger
Severe Boredom quotes by John Berger
