The Republicans, they are in the danger of rooting for the country to fail. They look bad that way, I mean, and I want to say to them, cheer up, Republicans. Eventually, things will get worse.Mark Shields Bad And Worse Sayings By Mark Shields: The Republicans, they are in the danger of rooting for the country to fail. They
I would think my reality is pretty bad, but definitely not bad enough to endure this every morning. But maybe that would explain what turns people into alcoholics. You drink to escape the emotional pain you're in, and then the next day you do it all over again to get rid of the physical pain. So you drink more and you drink more often and pretty soon you're drunk all the time and it becomes just as bad, if not worse, than the reality you were attempting to escape from in the first place. Only now, you need an escape from the escape, so you find something even stronger than the alcohol. And maybe that's what turns alcoholicsColleen Hoover Bad And Worse Sayings By Colleen Hoover: I would think my reality is pretty bad, but definitely not bad enough to endure

Avoiding our fears is the #1 reason we stay trapped in old routines, boring jobs, unhealthy habits, dying relationships, and hang onto bad behaviors that get worse the older we get.Scott Allan Bad And Worse Sayings By Scott Allan: Avoiding our fears is the #1 reason we stay trapped in old routines, boring jobs,
Kadin raised an eyebrow and gave Rob a knowing look. Then he tapped Gregory on the shoulder and said, "It's not that bad. It could be worse."
Gregory shrugged. "I guess I expect too much. All the decent hotels are gone now."
Rob was carrying a delicate white orchid that had been carefully arranged in a low Imari dish. They never visited empty-handed. If it wasn't a special gold box of Gregory's favorite chocolate, it was a small, fine trinket from the antique shop. He placed the arrangement beside Gregory and said, "This is for you. I hope you like orchids.
Ryan Field Bad And Worse Sayings By Ryan Field: Kadin raised an eyebrow and gave Rob a knowing look. Then he tapped Gregory on
The boy gestured with his chin at Dimity. "She was shot." He sounded remarkably unconcerned for a brother with any degree of affection for his sibling."Good lord!" Sophronia climbed in to see to her new friend's health. The bullet had grazed Dimity's shoulder. It had ripped her dress and left a partly burned gash behind, but didn't look all that bad. Sophronia checked to make certain Dimity had no other injuries. Then she sat back on her heels."Is that all? I've had worse scrapes from drinking tea. Why has she come over all crumpled?"Pillover rolled his eyes. "Faints at the sight of blood, our Dimity. Always has. Weak nerves,father says. It doesn't even have to be her blood.Gail Carriger Bad And Worse Sayings By Gail Carriger: The boy gestured with his chin at Dimity. "She was shot." He sounded remarkably unconcerned
The perfect target market for a startup is a small group of particular people concentrated together and served by few or no competitors. Any big market is a bad choice, and a big market already served by competing companies is even worse. This is why it's always a red flag when entrepreneurs talk about getting 1% of a $100 billion market. In practice, a large market will either lack a good starting point or it will be open to competition, so it's hard to ever reach that 1%. And even if you do succeed in gaining a small foothold, you'll have to be satisfied with keeping the lights on: cutthroat competition means your profits will be zero.Peter Thiel Bad And Worse Sayings By Peter Thiel: The perfect target market for a startup is a small group of particular people concentrated
A raped girl is bad for the family: it shows that they can't protect their women; that they have little social standing; and that they're not respectable. It's worse for the victim because once a woman, or a girl - or a boy - is known as the target of a rape she becomes so despised, so shamed, so worthless that she turns into public property. No one is raped only once.Louise Brown Bad And Worse Sayings By Louise Brown: A raped girl is bad for the family: it shows that they can't protect their
Like many city dwellers, they'd had the mistaken belief that spying was only really bad in Berlin and that decency still prevailed in small towns. And like many city dwellers, they had made the painful discovery that recrimination, eavesdropping, and informing were ten times worse in the small towns than in the big city. In a small town everyone was fully exposed; you couldn't even disappear in the crowd.Hans Fallada Bad And Worse Sayings By Hans Fallada: Like many city dwellers, they'd had the mistaken belief that spying was only really bad
Bonds are even worse, since their returns do not mean revert - a series of bad years is likely to be followed by even more bad ones, as happened during the 1970s. This is the point made by Jeremy Siegel in his superb treatise, Stocks For The Long Run. Professor Siegel pointed out that stocks outperformed bonds in only 61% of the years after 1802, but that they bested bonds in 80% of ten-year periods and in 99% of 30-year periods. LookedWilliam J. Bernstein Bad And Worse Sayings By William J. Bernstein: Bonds are even worse, since their returns do not mean revert - a series of
As things get worse and the State seems powerless to help, the State will seem less and less legitimate. People will lose their moral connection to it. Laws will seem more like revenue traps and shakedowns. The state will start to seem more like another extortion racket, and, as in Mexico, people will have a harder time telling the good guys from the bad guys.Jack Donovan Bad And Worse Sayings By Jack Donovan: As things get worse and the State seems powerless to help, the State will seem
The working-class aspirations are worse now than when I was a kid - and it was pretty bad when I was a kid. Reality TV means they are being told they are no longer a working class, they're an underclass. Young lassies want to be Jordan or Jade, but very few aspire to be the next Germaine Greer.Peter Mullan Bad And Worse Sayings By Peter Mullan: The working-class aspirations are worse now than when I was a kid - and it
It's a strange thing when you spend so much time and energy fearing the worst will happen. Turns out that when it finally occurs, it's pretty much as bad as you thought it would be. In fact, some parts are worse. Then an amazing thing happens. You see clearly for the first time what made the terrible thing so frightening in the first place: You didn't think you'd survive. But you do.Lane Davis Bad And Worse Sayings By Lane Davis: It's a strange thing when you spend so much time and energy fearing the worst
Use law and physic only for necessity; they that use them otherwise abuse themselves unto weak bodies, and light purses; they are good remedies, bad businesses, and worse recreations.Francis Quarles Bad And Worse Sayings By Francis Quarles: Use law and physic only for necessity; they that use them otherwise abuse themselves unto
While people will submit to suffering which may hit anyone, they will not so easily submit to suffering which is the result of the decision of authority. It may be bad to be just a cog in an impersonal machine; but it is infinitely worse if we can no longer leave it, if we are tied to our place and to the superiors who have been chosen for us. Dissatisfaction of everybody with his lot will inevitably grow with the consciousness that it is the result of deliberate human decision.Friedrich Hayek Bad And Worse Sayings By Friedrich Hayek: While people will submit to suffering which may hit anyone, they will not so easily
The meaning of all addictions could be defined as endeavors at controlling our life experiences with the help of external remedies. . . . Unfortunately, all external means of improving our life experiences are double-edged swords: they are always good and bad. No external remedy improves our condition without, at the same time, making it worse.Thomas Hora Bad And Worse Sayings By Thomas Hora: The meaning of all addictions could be defined as endeavors at controlling our life experiences
I seek from curiosity. I seek the knowing of things." "Knowing is a type of power," Shehyn pointed out, then seemed to change the subject. "Tempi told me there was a Rhinta among the bandits as their leader." "Rhinta?" I asked respectfully. "A bad thing. A man who is more than a man, yet less than a man." "A demon?" I asked, using the Aturan word without thinking. "Not a demon," Shehyn said, switching easily to Aturan. "There are no such things as demons. Your priests tell stories of demons to frighten you." She met my eye briefly, gesturing a graceful: Apologetic honesty and serious import . "But there are bad things in the world. Old things in the shape of men. And there are a handful worse than all the rest. They walk the world freely and do terrible things." I felt hope rising within me. "I have also heard them called the Chandrian," I said.Patrick Rothfuss Bad And Worse Sayings By Patrick Rothfuss: I seek from curiosity. I seek the knowing of things." "Knowing is a type of
What the expression is intended to mean, I think, is that there is a better and a worse element in the character of each individual, and that when the naturally better element controls the worse then the man is said to be "master of himself", as a term of praise. But when - as a result of bad upbringing or bad company one s better element is overpowered by the numerical superiority of one s worse impulses, then one is criticized for not being master of oneself and for lack of self control.Plato Bad And Worse Sayings By Plato: What the expression is intended to mean, I think, is that there is a better
It was bad enough to see friendship and love in terms of politics. But seeing it in terms of business was even worse.Elizabeth Eulberg Bad And Worse Sayings By Elizabeth Eulberg: It was bad enough to see friendship and love in terms of politics. But seeing
If religion does not make us better people, it will make us very much worse. And of all the bad men who have lived, the religious "bad man" is the worst of all.C.S. Lewis Bad And Worse Sayings By C.S. Lewis: If religion does not make us better people, it will make us very much worse.
Drunk, if you like; so much the worse for those who fear wine, for it is because they have bad thoughts which they are afraid the liquor will extract from their hearts; and Caderousse began to sing the two last lines of a song very popular at the time, - Alexandre Dumas Bad And Worse Sayings By Alexandre Dumas: Drunk, if you like; so much the worse for those who fear wine, for it
We as Americans assume that big companies are bad, and big power companies are even worse.Frank Luntz Bad And Worse Sayings By Frank Luntz: We as Americans assume that big companies are bad, and big power companies are even
So what I'm getting at is this. Okay, maybe it's cold in the grave. Maybe you come out of the light and you think, Fuck your mother, this is bad. This is worse than anything I would have guessed. But the trick is to clench your teeth, get a running start and dive.
When I hit that other country, from whose bourne no traveller back-pedals, I'm going to be moving fast. I'm gambling that the first ten seconds or so will be the worst.
Mike Carey Bad And Worse Sayings By Mike Carey: So what I'm getting at is this. Okay, maybe it's cold in the grave. Maybe
Arik and Cadie always knew they wouldn't be one of those couples that let problems between them fester. They would immediately address any issues that arose, bring them out into the open, discuss them until they reached a mutually satisfactory conclusion. They felt bad for some of the Founders who they believed had unhappy marriages - couples who were not strong enough to be truthful and open with each other, and even worse, with themselvesChristian Cantrell Bad And Worse Sayings By Christian Cantrell: Arik and Cadie always knew they wouldn't be one of those couples that let problems
Looking back on my morning, there was definitely GOOD NEWS and BAD NEWS. The GOOD NEWS . . . ? My day had gotten off to such a HORRIBLE start, I was absolutely SURE there was NO WAY things could get any WORSE ! The BAD NEWS . . . ? I was TOTALLY WRONG about the GOOD NEWS!Rachel Renee Russell Bad And Worse Sayings By Rachel Renee Russell: Looking back on my morning, there was definitely GOOD NEWS and BAD NEWS. The GOOD
Carter looked awful - I mean even worse than usual. Honestly, the boy had never been in a proper school, and he dressed like a junior professor, with his khaki trousers and a button-down brown shirt and loafers. He's not bad looking, I suppose. He's reasonably tall and fit and his hair isn't hopeless. He's got Dad's eyes, and my mates Liz and Emma have even told me from his picture that he's hot, which I must take with a grain of salt because (a) he's my brother, and (b) my mates are a bit crazed. When it came to clothes, Carter wouldn't have known hot if it bit him on the bum.Rick Riordan Bad And Worse Sayings By Rick Riordan: Carter looked awful - I mean even worse than usual. Honestly, the boy had never
When television is good, nothing - not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers - nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite each of you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air and stay there for a day without a book, without a magazine, without a newspaper, without a profit and loss sheet or a rating book to distract you. Keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that what you will observe is a vast wasteland.Newton N. Minow Bad And Worse Sayings By Newton N. Minow: When television is good, nothing - not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers -
Photography is painting with light! The blurs, the spots, those are errors! But the errors are part of it, they give it poetry and turn it into painting. And for that you need as bad a camera as possible! If you want to be famous, you have to do whatever you're doing worse than anyone else in the whole world.Miroslav Tichy Bad And Worse Sayings By Miroslav Tichy: Photography is painting with light! The blurs, the spots, those are errors! But the errors
All change brings bad things and good things to replace the bad and good things that were before. It is natural to look back and say it was better before - but that does not make it true. Different is not worse. It is just different.Patricia Briggs Bad And Worse Sayings By Patricia Briggs: All change brings bad things and good things to replace the bad and good things
The commandment to imitate Jesus does not appear suddenly in a world exempt from imitation; rather it is addressed to everyone that mimetic rivalry has affected. Non-Christians imagine that to be converted they must renounce an autonomy that all people possess naturally, a freedom and independence that Jesus would like to take away from them. In reality, once we imitate Jesus, we discover that our aspiration to autonomy has always made us bow down before individuals who may not be worse than we are but who are nonetheless bad models because we cannot imitate them without falling with them into the trap of rivalries in which we are ensnarled more and more.Rene Girard Bad And Worse Sayings By Rene Girard: The commandment to imitate Jesus does not appear suddenly in a world exempt from imitation;
It was like giving a homeless kid a night in a luxury hotel. It only made a bad situation worse. Once a person knows that kind of pleasure, they just wanted it again. And again.Santino Hassell Bad And Worse Sayings By Santino Hassell: It was like giving a homeless kid a night in a luxury hotel. It only
The thing about pain that I've learned over the years is that it isn't as bad once you get used to it. You can't fight it, that only makes it worse; you have to accept that it's going to be there, you have to embrace it, and then it becomes your companion. I can even see how one might start to like pain. Enjoy it.S.K. Newton Bad And Worse Sayings By S.K. Newton: The thing about pain that I've learned over the years is that it isn't as
In truth, in the fairy-tale version of bailing out Lehman, the next domino, A.I.G., would have fallen even harder. If the politics of bailing out Lehman were bad, the politics of bailing out A.I.G. would have been worse. And the systemic risk that a failure of A.I.G. posed was orders of magnitude greater than Lehman's collapse.Andrew Ross Sorkin Bad And Worse Sayings By Andrew Ross Sorkin: In truth, in the fairy-tale version of bailing out Lehman, the next domino, A.I.G., would
I've learned some things, and one of them is this...beating yourself up won't do you any good. Don't make a bad situation worse.Ernie Lindsey Bad And Worse Sayings By Ernie Lindsey: I've learned some things, and one of them is this...beating yourself up won't do you
The fear-and-projection strategy will turn round and bite back: you will be the sad, mad, bad person, and this can only make a difficult situation very much worse. Additionally, since - as you will see - there is a good deal of evidence that none of these worries are actually true, people pursuing this route will be obliged to cut themselves off from many ways of knowing about the actual world in which they are living. This itself may well prove isolating: one of the problems with projected fears is that they do tend to make the scary thing or event more likely, rather than less likely, to occur.Sara Maitland Bad And Worse Sayings By Sara Maitland: The fear-and-projection strategy will turn round and bite back: you will be the sad, mad,
I look at the human sciences as poetic sciences in which there is no objectivity, and I see film as not being objective, and cinema verite as a cinema of lies that depends on the art of telling yourself lies. If you're a good storyteller then the lie is more true than reality, and if you're a bad one, the truth is worse than a half lie.Jean Rouch Bad And Worse Sayings By Jean Rouch: I look at the human sciences as poetic sciences in which there is no objectivity,
They both looked at me in a way that was fast becoming familiar: two parts bafflement to one part awe at my talent for making a bad situation worse.David Bennun Bad And Worse Sayings By David Bennun: They both looked at me in a way that was fast becoming familiar: two parts
If a man values you, then he does. How long you prolong 'the chase' may not necessarily add to or subtract from that. So if you love him and you know he loves you back, then please click the 'yes' bottom to his proposal. It is bad to love the wrong person, but worse to cheaply lose the one that loves you right.Olaotan Fawehinmi Bad And Worse Sayings By Olaotan Fawehinmi: If a man values you, then he does. How long you prolong 'the chase' may
It is bad enough that so many people believe things without any evidence. What is worse is that some people have no conception of evidence and regard facts as just someone else's opinion.Thomas Sowell Bad And Worse Sayings By Thomas Sowell: It is bad enough that so many people believe things without any evidence. What is
Religion makes good people better and bad people worse.H. Richard Niebuhr Bad And Worse Sayings By H. Richard Niebuhr: Religion makes good people better and bad people worse.
Mania is as bad as it gets. If not treated, it will become worse, more frequent, and harder to treat.Kay Redfield Jamison Bad And Worse Sayings By Kay Redfield Jamison: Mania is as bad as it gets. If not treated, it will become worse, more
This was the history of the world. Recovery and collapse, despair and relief. The dialectic of clean and dirty. Every time is worse than the time before. The bad things come, days and nights and days and nights get so unbelievably fucked up, unbelievably fast, but in the end

everybody's best self just slogs forward, one stagger, one fall, one day, one 'what the fuck just happened?' moment of oblivion and soul-broken joy at a time. All we have to do is not die.
Jerry Stahl Bad And Worse Sayings By Jerry Stahl: This was the history of the world. Recovery and collapse, despair and relief. The dialectic
If I had to advise parents, I should tell them to take great care about the people with whom their children associate ... Much harm may result from bad company, and we are inclined by nature to follow what is worse than what is better.Elizabeth Ann Seton Bad And Worse Sayings By Elizabeth Ann Seton: If I had to advise parents, I should tell them to take great care about
Maybe you lost someone you never expected you would lose. Maybe you lost yourself. That's even worse. When you have bad days that just won't let up, I just hope that you will look in the mirror and remind yourself of what you are and what you are not.
You are not your mistakes.
You are not damaged goods or money from your failed explorations.
You are not the opinion of someone who doesn't know you.
You are a product of the lessons that you've learned.
You are wiser because you went through something terrible.
And you are the person who survived a bunch of rainstorms and kept walking.
I now believe that pain makes you stronger. And now I believe that walking through a lot of rainstorms gets you clean.
Taylor Swift Bad And Worse Sayings By Taylor Swift: Maybe you lost someone you never expected you would lose. Maybe you lost yourself. That's
The liar is no whit better than the thief, and if his mendacity takes the form of slander he may be worse than most thieves. It puts a premium upon knavery untruthfully to attack an honest man, or even with hysterical exaggeration to assail a bad man with untruth.Theodore Roosevelt Bad And Worse Sayings By Theodore Roosevelt: The liar is no whit better than the thief, and if his mendacity takes the
We're all human beings, and we all have the same problems. I do remember how blessed I am, and no matter how bad things are, they can always get worse.Khloe Kardashian Bad And Worse Sayings By Khloe Kardashian: We're all human beings, and we all have the same problems. I do remember how
Be bad, and if you can't be bad be worse.Tobsha Learner Bad And Worse Sayings By Tobsha Learner: Be bad, and if you can't be bad be worse.
I sat there afraid that I might discover that the world around me is not real. then i thought: wait. i need fear that only if its true, and if it is, i must consider that while this may be bad, worse than that is living in a world that is only real because i am a coward.Philip K. Jason Bad And Worse Sayings By Philip K. Jason: I sat there afraid that I might discover that the world around me is not
The good television of today is probably better than the best television of the old days. The bad television of today is worse. It is not only bad, it is damaging, meretricious, seedy and cynical.John Humphrys Bad And Worse Sayings By John Humphrys: The good television of today is probably better than the best television of the old
But are his needs any more shocking than the needs of any other animals and men? Are his deeds more outrageous than the deeds of the parent who drained the spirit from his child? The vampire may foster quickened heartbeats and levitated hair. But is he worse than the parent who gave to society a neurotic child who became a politician? Is he worse than the manufacturer who set up belated foundations with the money he made by handing bombs and guns to suicidal nationalists? Is he worse than the distiller who gave bastardized grain juice to stultify further the brains of those who, sober, were incapable of progressive thought? (Nay, I apologize for this calumny; I nip the brew that feeds me.) Is he worse, then, than the publisher who filled ubiquitous racks with lust and death wishes? Really, no, search your soul, lovie

Babies are born with neither good nor bad character. Normal people - as they grow, learn and are trained - develop better or worse dispositions and habits of conduct.Edwin J. Delattre Bad And Worse Sayings By Edwin J. Delattre: Babies are born with neither good nor bad character. Normal people - as they grow,
Feels almost like real agent work, doesn't it?" Barron says as we walk down the street, heads bowed against the wind. "You know, if we caught your girlfriend committing a crime, I bet Yulikova would give us a bonus or something for being prize pupils."
"Except that we're not going to do that," I say.
"I thought you wanted us to be good guys." He grins a too-wide grin. He's enjoying needling me, and my reacting only makes it worse, but I can't stop.
"Not if it means hurting her," I say, my voice as deadly as I can make it. "Never her."
"Got it. Hurting, bad. But how do you excuse stalking her and her friends, little brother?"
"I'm not excusing it," I say. "I'm just doing it.
Holly Black Bad And Worse Sayings By Holly Black: Feels almost like real agent work, doesn't it?" Barron says as we walk down the
Beldin sighed. "Since you're going to be such a spoilsport for this, Pol, I found a
group of sheephenders below the snow line."
"Shepherds, uncle," she corrected.
"It means the same thing. If you really look at it, it's even the same word,"
"Shepherd sounds nicer."
"Nicer." He snorted. "Sheep are stupid, they smell bad, and they taste worse.
Anybody who spends his life tending them is either defective or degenerate.
David Eddings Bad And Worse Sayings By David Eddings: Beldin sighed. "Since you're going to be such a spoilsport for this, Pol, I found
Hope for the best, be prepared for the worse. Life is shocking, but you must never appear to be shocked. For no matter how bad it is it could be worse and no matter how good it is it could be better.Maya Angelou Bad And Worse Sayings By Maya Angelou: Hope for the best, be prepared for the worse. Life is shocking, but you must
I want them to play Britney Spears at my funeral. This way I won't feel so bad about being dead, and everyone there will know there is something worse than Death.Gary Numan Bad And Worse Sayings By Gary Numan: I want them to play Britney Spears at my funeral. This way I won't feel
Stuffed deer heads on walls are bad enough, but it's worse when you see them wearing dark glasses, having streamers around their necks and a hat on their antlers. Because then you know they were enjoying themselves at a party when they were shot.Ellen DeGeneres Bad And Worse Sayings By Ellen DeGeneres: Stuffed deer heads on walls are bad enough, but it's worse when you see them
So, very early reports are that Obamacare exchanges are, as expected, having some technical glitches on the first day - maybe even a bit worse than expected, because it appears that volume has been much bigger than predicted. Here's what you need to know: this is good, not bad, news for the program. Lots of people logging on and signing up on the very first day is an early indication that it's going to be fine, that plenty of people will sign up for the first year of health reform.Paul Krugman Bad And Worse Sayings By Paul Krugman: So, very early reports are that Obamacare exchanges are, as expected, having some technical glitches
Here is the truth, Darrel. She is not at the end. She is at the beginning. Her fear has not become greater; it has become less and less until now, her fear is gone altogether. And she is not experiencing something bad that gets worse until there is nothing at all ... she is experiencing something incredible that gets better, until there is everything." Jones looked down at the woman and lightly touched her head. "Before this woman was ever born, when she was warm and snug inside her mama's belly, she kicked and twisted, moving this way and that. For monthsAndy Andrews Bad And Worse Sayings By Andy Andrews: Here is the truth, Darrel. She is not at the end. She is at the
If we had allowed things to drift, everything would have gone from bad to worse. Nasser would have become a kind of Moslem Mussolini, and our friends in Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and even Iran would gradually have been brought down. His efforts would have spread westwards, and Libya and North Africa would have been brought under his control.Anthony Eden Bad And Worse Sayings By Anthony Eden: If we had allowed things to drift, everything would have gone from bad to worse.
There is no worse discriminator than envy. No worse traitor than envy. Even those who are seemingly righteous, are brought down low by their envy. A true man will be known by his absence of envy. An evil man will be known by the presence of envy within him.C. JoyBell C. Bad And Worse Sayings By C. JoyBell C.: There is no worse discriminator than envy. No worse traitor than envy. Even those who
hurt your feelings, and then observe how they react (this naturally assumes that you yourself are treating them respectfully). If it's a psychopath, don't expect a lot of understanding. At best they may say "that's nothing to get hung up about!", which means that they take no responsibility and don't feel bad about it at all. But they may also get angry and say much worse things to you - but then at least you know what kind of person they are. If they on the other hand apologize, and you feel genuine understanding, love, compassion and empathy, that's a good sign! The most important thing however, is how they act from then on. Are they more considerate? Did they change for the better? Or was it no more than a false excuse to end your "nagging" for the moment?Jonas Warstad Bad And Worse Sayings By Jonas Warstad: hurt your feelings, and then observe how they react (this naturally assumes that you yourself
The meaning of good and bad, of better and worse, is simply helping or hurting.Ralph Waldo Emerson Bad And Worse Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: The meaning of good and bad, of better and worse, is simply helping or hurting.
Hours are long. Wages are pitiful. But sweatshops are the symptom, not the cause, of shocking global poverty. Workers go there voluntarily, which means - hard as it is to believe - that whatever their alternatives are, they are worse. They stay there, too; turnover rates of multinational-owned factories are low, because conditions and pay, while bad, are better than those in factories run by local firms. And even a local company is likely to pay better than trying to earn money without a job: running an illegal street stall, working as a prostitute, or combing reeking landfills in cities like Manila to find recyclable goods.Tim Harford Bad And Worse Sayings By Tim Harford: Hours are long. Wages are pitiful. But sweatshops are the symptom, not the cause, of
Reasonable natures have free will, and can turn to the good or the bad voluntarily by themselves. They either attach themselves to God's will, which results in their continuous progress, improvement and advancement, or they oppose God's will, are justly subjected to what He permits, and sink wretchedly from bad to worse.Gregory Palamas Bad And Worse Sayings By Gregory Palamas: Reasonable natures have free will, and can turn to the good or the bad voluntarily
The theory of behavior is useful to the life of man only as the index is useful to him who goes through it before reading the book itself; when he has read it, all that he has learned is the subject matter. Such is the moral teaching that we receive from the discourses, the precepts, and the stories we are treated to by those who bring us up. We listen to it all attentively; but when we have an opportunity to profit by the various advice we have been given, we become possessed by a desire to see if the thing will turn out to be what we have been told it will; we do it, and we are punished by repentance. What recompenses us a little is that in such moments we consider ourselves wise and hence entitled to teach others. Those whom we teach do exactly as we did, from which it follows that the world always stands still or goes from bad to worse.Giacomo Casanova Bad And Worse Sayings By Giacomo Casanova: The theory of behavior is useful to the life of man only as the index
Kids take work, effort, love, blood, sweat and tears and are a full time job. You have to commit, for better or worse and then give your all and hope for the best. The one thing you can never, ever do is give up and say, 'Oooops, never mind, my bad, you can take this one back!'Dale Archer Bad And Worse Sayings By Dale Archer: Kids take work, effort, love, blood, sweat and tears and are a full time job.
It's not that we had no heart or eyes for pain. We were all afraid. We all had our miseries. But to despair was to wish for something already lost. Or to prolong what was already unbearable ... What was worse, to sit and wait for our own deaths with proper somber faces? Or to choose our own happiness?
So we decided to hold parties and pretend each week had become the new year. Each week we could forget past wrongs done to us. We weren't allowed to think a bad thought. We feasted, we laughed, we played games, lost and won, we told the best stories. And each week we could hope to be lucky. That hope was our only joy. And that's how we came to call our little parties Joy Luck.

Mortimer Lindquist seemed to have finally given in to the inevitable. I'd seen him with a bad toupee, and with an even worse comb-over, but this was the first time I'd seen him sporting a full-on Charles Xavier.Jim Butcher Bad And Worse Sayings By Jim Butcher: Mortimer Lindquist seemed to have finally given in to the inevitable. I'd seen him with
You now have learned enough to see That Cats are much like you and me And other people whom we find Possessed of various types of mind. For some are sane and some are mad And some are good and some are bad And some are better, some are worse - But all may be described in verse.Garrison Keillor Bad And Worse Sayings By Garrison Keillor: You now have learned enough to see That Cats are much like you and me
I feel bad for the kids that are in school right now and the young people all across America who don't realize that the grownups who are supposed to be running this country are the verge of leaving them as the first generation of Americans worse off than the generation before.Marco Rubio Bad And Worse Sayings By Marco Rubio: I feel bad for the kids that are in school right now and the young
For thirty years," he said, "I've sailed the seas and seen good and bad, better and worse, fair weather and foul, provisions running out, knives going, and what not. Well, now I tell you, I never seen good come o' goodness yet. Him as strikes first is my fancy; dead men don't bite; them's my views - amen, so be it.Robert Louis Stevenson Bad And Worse Sayings By Robert Louis Stevenson: For thirty years," he said, "I've sailed the seas and seen good and bad, better
Good work does not matter, because a man is judged by his worst output and another man takes all the credit of his best as a rule. Bad work does not matter, because other men do worse, and incompetents hang on longer in India than anywhere else. Amusements do not matter, because you must repeat them as soon as you have accomplished them once, and most amusements only mean trying to win another person's money. Sickness does not matter, because it's all in the day's work, and if you die another man takes over your place and your office in the eight hours between death and burial.Rudyard Kipling Bad And Worse Sayings By Rudyard Kipling: Good work does not matter, because a man is judged by his worst output and

It wasn't the dying. He had seen men die all his life, and death was the luck of the chance, the price you eventually paid. What was worse was the stupidity. The appalling sick stupidity that was so bad you thought sometimes you would go suddenly, violently, completely insane just having to watch it. It was a deadly thing to be thinking on. Job to be done here. And all of it turns on faith.Michael Shaara Bad And Worse Sayings By Michael Shaara: It wasn't the dying. He had seen men die all his life, and death was
Regarding homophobia in general, the good news is that there is a lot less of it than there used to be. The bad news is that it ever existed in the first place, and the worse news is that it remains far stronger than is healthy for a society dedicated in theory to equality under the law.Barney Frank Bad And Worse Sayings By Barney Frank: Regarding homophobia in general, the good news is that there is a lot less of
In Marxism there are some very unhelpful ideas about the need to push for a revolution that will overturn all of society. Marx gets that from Hegel, and it leads to some very bad politics, such as the hope that things must get worse because that will then turn into the antithesis and get better from there. A kind of wishful thinking then grows out of not seeing a realistic path forward.Cynthia Kauffman Bad And Worse Sayings By Cynthia Kauffman: In Marxism there are some very unhelpful ideas about the need to push for a
But women can bear anything better than desertion. Cruelty is bad, but neglect is worse than cruelty, and desertion worse even than neglect.Anthony Trollope Bad And Worse Sayings By Anthony Trollope: But women can bear anything better than desertion. Cruelty is bad, but neglect is worse
Mom was getting really worked up, and tears began to trickle down her cheeks. As I'm sure you know, it's a really, really bad sign when your mom starts crying. It can't get much worse than that. Mom tears are one of the most powerful forces in the universe.Stephen Altrogge Bad And Worse Sayings By Stephen Altrogge: Mom was getting really worked up, and tears began to trickle down her cheeks.

The study showed that chronic loneliness impacts out bodies as negatively as smoking two packs of cigarettes a day. Not the same way, of course, just the life risk part. And there's more bad news. The article went on to say that lonely people had worse reactions to flu shots that non-lonelies (I think I just made up that word; my computer put a red squiggly line under it) and that loneliness depresses the immune system. On other words, if you're lonely, not even your body wants to be around you, so it tries to off itself.Richard Paul Evans Bad And Worse Sayings By Richard Paul Evans: The study showed that chronic loneliness impacts out bodies as negatively as smoking two packs
No war ought ever to be undertaken but under circumstances which render all intercourse of courtesy between the combatants impossible. It is a bad thing that men should hate each other; but it is far worse that they should contract the habit of cutting one another's throats without hatred. War is never lenient but where it is wanton; when men are compelled to fight in self-defence, they must hate and avenge: this may be bad; but it is human nature.Thomas B. Macaulay Bad And Worse Sayings By Thomas B. Macaulay: No war ought ever to be undertaken but under circumstances which render all intercourse of

When outsiders claim that we are unchristian, it is a reflection of this jumbled (and predominately negative) set of perceptions. When they see Christians not acting like Jesus, they quickly conclude that the group deserves an unchristian label. Like a corrupted computer file or a bad photocopy, Christianity, they say, is no longer in pure form, and so they reject it. One quarter of outsiders say therefore most perception of Christianity is that the faith has changed for the worse. It has gotten off-track and is not what Christ intended. Modern-day Christianity no longer seems Christian.David Kinnaman Bad And Worse Sayings By David Kinnaman: When outsiders claim that we are unchristian, it is a reflection of this jumbled (and
And it's bad enough to be caught in your underpants but even worse to be caught in your underpants scratching out a valium prescription on someone else's pad.David Sedaris Bad And Worse Sayings By David Sedaris: And it's bad enough to be caught in your underpants but even worse to be
I didn't know there were at least as many terrible independent movies as there are big-budget ones. Like, every single year. And bad in a worse way, too. They're just parodies of themselves sometimes.Kyle Parker Bad And Worse Sayings By Kyle Parker: I didn't know there were at least as many terrible independent movies as there are
Tissue gas was an embalmer's worst nightmare - a highly infectious form of bacteria that thrived on dead tissue and released a noxious gas inside the body. Smell was usually the easiest way to detect it, but sometimes, as with this body, the smell was buried under other chemicals, and the only way to identify it was the 'skin-slip' Mom had found on the back, where interior gas bubbles separated the skin from the muscle. The gas itself was bad enough, because the stink would soon become so foul it would be all but impossible to cover up; that didn't reflect well on us when people showed up for the viewing. Even worse than the gas though, were the bacteria that made it. Once they got into your workspace, you might never get them out again. If we didn't put a stop to this right now, every body we embalmed would catch the same bacteria from our tools and table. It could destroy the entire business.Dan Wells Bad And Worse Sayings By Dan Wells: Tissue gas was an embalmer's worst nightmare - a highly infectious form of bacteria that
Make no mistake, Ms. Lane, I didn't rape you. You can lie there on your pretty little
P.C. ass and claim with your idealistic little P.C. arguments that any violation of your will
is rape and that I'm a big, bad bastard, and I'll tell you that you're full of shit, and you've
obviously never been raped. Rape is much, much worse. Rape isn't something you walk
away from. You crawl.

It is much, much worse to receive bad news through the written word than by somebody simply telling you, and I'm sure you understand why. When somebody simply tells you bad news, you hear it once, and that's the end of it. But when bad news is written down, whether in a letter or a newspaper or on your arm in felt tip pen, each time you read it, you feel as if you are receiving the bad news again and again.Lemony Snicket Bad And Worse Sayings By Lemony Snicket: It is much, much worse to receive bad news through the written word than by

Code without tests is bad code. It doesn't matter how well written it is; it doesn't matter how pretty or object-oriented or well-encapsulated it is. With tests, we can change the behavior of our code quickly and verifiably. Without them, we really don't know if our code is getting better or worse.Michael C. Feathers Bad And Worse Sayings By Michael C. Feathers: Code without tests is bad code. It doesn't matter how well written it is; it
Threats from the street may be potentially lethal, but the threat from the "enemy within" is a far worse hazard to a law officers health and wellbeing.Steve Neal Bad And Worse Sayings By Steve Neal: Threats from the street may be potentially lethal, but the threat from the "enemy within"
I shall not assess arguments and evidence for competing views about when human extinction will occur. We know it will occur, and this fact has a curious effect on my argument. In a strange way it makes my argument an optimistic one. Although things are now not the way they should be - there are people when there should be none - things will someday be the way they should be - there will be no people. In other words, although things are now bad, they will be better, even if they first get worse with the creation of new people. Some may wish to be spared this kind of optimism, but some optimists may take a measure of comfort in this observation.David Benatar Bad And Worse Sayings By David Benatar: I shall not assess arguments and evidence for competing views about when human extinction will
My muscles informed me they did not want to go through any more exercise today. So I suggest that maybe he should let me off this time. He laughed, and I'm pretty sure it was at me ... not with me.
"Why is that funny?"
"Oh," he said, his smile dropping. "You were serious."
"Of course I was! Look, I've technically been awake for two days. Why do we have to start this training now? Let me go to bed." I whined. "It's just one hour."
"How do you feel right now?"
"I hurt like hell."
"You'll feel worse tomorrow."
"So?"
"So, better get a jump on it while you still feel ... not as bad."
"What kind of logic is that?" I retorted.
Richelle Mead Bad And Worse Sayings By Richelle Mead: My muscles informed me they did not want to go through any more exercise today.
The average detective story is probably no worse than the average novel, but you never see the average novel. It doesn't get published. The average
or only slightly above average
detective story does ... Whereas the good novel is not at all the same kind of book as the bad novel. It is about entirely different things. But the good detective story and the bad detective story are about exactly the same things, and they are about them in very much the same way.

There is no need to overreact. I'm certain there are worse things that could happen to a young lady than to be denied a voucher to Almack's."
