You don't treat me like a child."
He smiled. "Of course I do, but you seem to have this ridiculous notion that being treated like a child means to be treated with less respect than an adult.

Ivanov: No, my clever young thing, it's not a question of romance. I say as before God that I will endure everything - depression and mental illness and ruin and the loss of my wife and premature old age and loneliness - but I cannot tolerate, cannot endure being ridiculous in my own eyes. I'm dying of shame at the thought that I, a healthy, strong man, have turned into some sort of Hamlet or Manfred, some sort of 'superfluous man' ... devil knows precisely what!
There are pitiful people who are flattered by being called Hamlet or superfluous men, but for me it's a disgrace! It stirs up my pride, I'm overcome by shame and I suffer ...
Anton Chekhov Being Ridiculous Sayings By Anton Chekhov: Ivanov: No, my clever young thing, it's not a question of romance. I say as
You shouldn't have asked," I said. "Love doesn't ask many questions, because if we stop to think we become fearful. It's an inexplicable fear; it's difficult even to describe it. Maybe it's the fear of being scorned, of not being accepted, or of breaking the spell. It's ridiculous, but that's the way it is. That's why you don't ask-you act. As you've said many times, you have to take risks.Paulo Coelho Being Ridiculous Sayings By Paulo Coelho: You shouldn't have asked," I said. "Love doesn't ask many questions, because if we stop
I take a ridiculous pleasure in what I eat and drink. It comes partly from being a bachelor, but mostly from a habit of taking a lot of trouble over details. It's very persnickety and old-maidish really, but then when I'm working I generally have to eat my meals alone and it makes them more interesting when one takes trouble.Ian Fleming Being Ridiculous Sayings By Ian Fleming: I take a ridiculous pleasure in what I eat and drink. It comes partly from
I'm not a statistician, but it doesn't take a genious to work out that 100 million children being denied an education is ridiculous. There is nothing lost in translation here, it's obvious that's wrong.Scarlett Johansson Being Ridiculous Sayings By Scarlett Johansson: I'm not a statistician, but it doesn't take a genious to work out that 100
Basically I'm a female human being with brown hair, enjoy precision, reading the news, eating delicious food with my delicious friends and laughing at ridiculous things that don't translate while you are desperately trying to make them.Tig Notaro Being Ridiculous Sayings By Tig Notaro: Basically I'm a female human being with brown hair, enjoy precision, reading the news, eating
Being inside of her was the most perfect torture. It satiated the hunger I felt at that moment, but like a junkie I found myself consumed by the need for more as soon as it ended. It was terrifying, because in those moments with her, I'd do anything she asked. And that feeling was starting to bleed into moments like this too, when I wasn't even with her and still wanted to be what she needed. Ridiculous.Christina Lauren Being Ridiculous Sayings By Christina Lauren: Being inside of her was the most perfect torture. It satiated the hunger I felt
Jealousy, anger, fear - these are ridiculous emotions that drain your power. You need to control them by being content, trusting that life knows what is best, accepting with an even mind whatever is presented to you.Frederick Lenz Being Ridiculous Sayings By Frederick Lenz: Jealousy, anger, fear - these are ridiculous emotions that drain your power. You need to
Do not be so ridiculous, I can more easily find you someone else." Gripping the bars of his prison so strongly that the bones of his knuckles showed prominently through his pale skin, the monster growled again, "I will have no other."
Nearing the end of his patience, Klaus demanded, "Why? Why are you being so impossible?"
Turning to the diminutive creature beneath the blanket, he smiled nastily, his light red eyes gleaming, "Because he wants her.
Gwenn Wright Being Ridiculous Sayings By Gwenn Wright: Do not be so ridiculous, I can more easily find you someone else." Gripping the
It was like being pleased y a thorn bush, feeling fond of every prickle. Another second and he was going to say something ridiculous like that.C.S. Pacat Being Ridiculous Sayings By C.S. Pacat: It was like being pleased y a thorn bush, feeling fond of every prickle. Another
But there was a cost. Being near Ethan was just ... incendiary. Part animosity, part ridiculous chemistry, neither conducive to a peaceful home environment. And this was only my first night under his thumb. Not a good sign of things to come.Chloe Neill Being Ridiculous Sayings By Chloe Neill: But there was a cost. Being near Ethan was just ... incendiary. Part animosity, part
Your mother was the love of my life. Not everyone gets to have that. I did. Yes, I miss her, but I'm happier being alone and missing her than pretending not to miss her while being with someone else. Does that ridiculous statement make sense?"
"Yes."
"Good.
Tracy Guzeman Being Ridiculous Sayings By Tracy Guzeman: Your mother was the love of my life. Not everyone gets to have that. I
She had always hoped that Jane could have looked out over her surroundings and thought: 'I can create a better world than this', or 'You're much too unbearably boring, and perhaps I can't say anything about it without being impolite, but you are going to be absolutely wonderful in my next book. I need another ridiculous minister.' Still, Sara couldn't help but wonder what life must be like if you couldn't daydream about Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy (how had she decided on that name? One of literary history's most inexplicable mysteries), because you yourself had created him.Katarina Bivald Being Ridiculous Sayings By Katarina Bivald: She had always hoped that Jane could have looked out over her surroundings and thought:
Do not fear being ridiculous in relation to the ridiculous.Jean Cocteau Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jean Cocteau: Do not fear being ridiculous in relation to the ridiculous.

I never give in to the temptation to be difficult just for the sake of being difficult. That would be too ridiculous.Jacques Derrida Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jacques Derrida: I never give in to the temptation to be difficult just for the sake of
This is ridiculous. It's been months and for some reason I just can't get over us. I'm stronger than this. Enough is enough; no more walking around with my head down, I'm so over being blue crying over you.Ne-Yo Being Ridiculous Sayings By Ne-Yo: This is ridiculous. It's been months and for some reason I just can't get over
Nick spreads cream cheese on my bagel for me because it's hard to do with one hand. You need to hold the bagel and everything.
"You are the nicest boyfriend ever," I tell him and kiss his cheek.
"Gag," Devyn says.
"You're just jealous," Nick teases him and points his plastic knife at Devyn. "Which is ridiculous because you are the star of the school now that the wheelchair is totally gone. Everyone is talking about you."
"Star of the school?" Devyn asks. He takes a swig of Gatorade.
"All the girls." Nick gestures to the girls giggling behind them. "They like miracles. It's sexy. Remember how much play Jay Dahlberg got when he came back from being abducted?" He does not add by pixies because he does not have to.
"Really?" Devyn does this cheesy and really fake eyebrow wiggle thing so he looks like some sleezy porn dog.
Carrie Jones Being Ridiculous Sayings By Carrie Jones: Nick spreads cream cheese on my bagel for me because it's hard to do with
I do have at home the most ridiculous number of awards for what I have done, which is nice in terms of being patted on the back, yet it does cure you of caring about what other people say about you. Ultimately, you must have your own standard of what is good enough.John Lloyd Being Ridiculous Sayings By John Lloyd: I do have at home the most ridiculous number of awards for what I have
Fire had an almost magical quality that suggested anything was possible. Early on, man even believed that fire was a god that had to be fed with animal sacrifices in order to burn brightly. Today we have evolved a long way from this ridiculous notion of a 'fire god' and now rightfully understand God to be a bearded being who lives amongst the clouds and hates Jews and homosexuals.Amy Sedaris Being Ridiculous Sayings By Amy Sedaris: Fire had an almost magical quality that suggested anything was possible. Early on, man even
In the very early stages of working in sports, I was sick of being referred to as "the Barbie doll" because I had long, blond, fake hair. So I went and bought a boxed hair color, dyed my hair black, and put on glasses. And I looked ridiculous. I looked like a completely different person. I was trying to get away from the stereotype but what I realized in doing that is that what I say and how I conduct myself in what I do will speak for itself, and I don't need to apologize for being a woman in that space.Charissa Thompson Being Ridiculous Sayings By Charissa Thompson: In the very early stages of working in sports, I was sick of being referred
But one day she was telling me how every room has a note. You just have to find it. She started warbling away, up and down. And suddenly one note came back to us, just bounced back off the walls and rose from the floor and filled the place with this perfect hum. This beautiful sound. Like you've thrown a plum and an orchard comes back at you. You wouldn't believe it, Mr. Evans. These two completely different things, a note and a room, finding each other. It sounded ... right. Am I being ridiculous? Do you think that's what we mean by love, Mr. Evans? The note that comes back to you? That finds you even when you don't want to be found? That one day you find someone, and everything they are comes back to you in a strange way that hums? That fits. That's beautiful.Richard Flanagan Being Ridiculous Sayings By Richard Flanagan: But one day she was telling me how every room has a note. You just
I can think back to being four or five and not wanting to sit at the kids' table because I thought it was demeaning. I was this ridiculous little kid.Lenny Abrahamson Being Ridiculous Sayings By Lenny Abrahamson: I can think back to being four or five and not wanting to sit at
Bananas?"
He nodded with a small grin. "I discovered about those years ago that I absolutely hate those damn things."
"But they're just bananas."
"They're the fruit of the devil."
A surprised laugh burst out of me. "That's ridiculous."
The half grin spread and the dimple appeared. "It's the truth. Now it's your turn.
Jennifer L. Armentrout Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jennifer L. Armentrout: Bananas?" He nodded with a small grin. "I discovered about those years ago that I
Honestly - and maybe some of you can relate to this - I just can't stand the pressure of being responsible for hosting a memorable (and not in a bad way) evening. Martha Stewart, bless her heart, intimidates me. That level of entertaining is so over my head: What do you mean, you didn't dig up your own potatoes for this dish? You didn't make the doilies? The plates didn't just come out of a kiln? I love Martha, but it gets ridiculous.Tim Gunn Being Ridiculous Sayings By Tim Gunn: Honestly - and maybe some of you can relate to this - I just can't
The most effective way of attacking vice is to expose it to public ridicule. People can put up with rebukes but they cannot bear being laughed at: they are prepared to be wicked but they dislike appearing ridiculous.Moliere Being Ridiculous Sayings By Moliere: The most effective way of attacking vice is to expose it to public ridicule. People
A leveller has long ago been set down as a ridiculous and chimerical being, who, if he could finish his work to-day, would have to begin it again tomorrow.Charles Caleb Colton Being Ridiculous Sayings By Charles Caleb Colton: A leveller has long ago been set down as a ridiculous and chimerical being, who,
There's also something about ageing and the concomitant awareness of the fleeting nature of existence that tends to make you less worried about being ridiculous, and less judgemental about the quality of ridiculousness in others.Tom Cox Being Ridiculous Sayings By Tom Cox: There's also something about ageing and the concomitant awareness of the fleeting nature of existence
I can't watch shows like 'The X Factor,' for instance. I just squirm for the people involved, for the way they're being used. It's the cruellest, most ridiculous show on television. It's ruined music, ruined everything.John Simm Being Ridiculous Sayings By John Simm: I can't watch shows like 'The X Factor,' for instance. I just squirm for the
I long to be ... Like Other People! The extraordinary, ungetatable, oddly cruel Other People, with their way of wantonly hurting and then accusing you of being thin-skinned, sulky, vindictive or ridiculous.Jean Rhys Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jean Rhys: I long to be ... Like Other People! The extraordinary, ungetatable, oddly cruel Other People,
And yet we were always being found innocent for ridiculous reasons.Denis Johnson Being Ridiculous Sayings By Denis Johnson: And yet we were always being found innocent for ridiculous reasons.
Meanwhile, the travellers pursued their journey; Emily making frequent efforts to appear cheerful, and too often relapsing into silence and dejection. Madame Cheron, attributing her melancholy solely to the circumstance of her being removed to a distance from her lover, and believing, that the sorrow, which her niece still expressed for the loss of St. Aubert, proceeded partly from an affectation of sensibility, endeavoured to make it appear ridiculous to her, that such deep regret should continue to be felt so long after the period usually allowed for grief. AtEliza Parsons Being Ridiculous Sayings By Eliza Parsons: Meanwhile, the travellers pursued their journey; Emily making frequent efforts to appear cheerful, and too
The elderly gentleman somehow managed to look down his nose at her,even though they were of a similar height.
"From what I just witnessed, you were about to assault Mr. Addleshaw."
"Just because I was thinking about it, doesn't mean I was planning on seeing it through to fruition."
"A lady should never contemplate slapping a gentleman, especially not one of Mr. Addleshaw's social standing."
"I wasn't thinking about slapping him," Harriet muttered. "He deserved much more than a simple slap for being under the misguided belief that, simply because he has deep pockets, everyone should cater to his ridiculous whims.
Jen Turano Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jen Turano: The elderly gentleman somehow managed to look down his nose at her,even though they were
I am a ridiculous man. They call me a madman now. That would be a distinct rise in my social position were it not that they still regard me as being as ridiculous as ever.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Being Ridiculous Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: I am a ridiculous man. They call me a madman now. That would be a
To state that the cost of proper medical care itself surpasses the financial resources of any of the countries in the West is of course ridiculous, not the least when one considers the other purposes for which money is freely being used and working hours spent.Karl Evang Being Ridiculous Sayings By Karl Evang: To state that the cost of proper medical care itself surpasses the financial resources of
A personal highlight was probably when we got a No. 1 in the U.K. and when the album went to No. 1 in America. The top four that week was us, Adele, Guns N' Roses and Bruce Springsteen. It was ridiculous seeing those names there. Being the first band from the U.K. and Ireland to go to America and debut at No. 1 is just unbelievable.Niall Horan Being Ridiculous Sayings By Niall Horan: A personal highlight was probably when we got a No. 1 in the U.K. and
It is one of an astoundingly large and plentiful number of human misconceptions that time is linear. That is to say, that there was a beginning, then there is a middle, then there is an end. This stems from the human desire to make everything about them, and the ridiculous human trait of being completely unable to see things from a perspective outside their own. Time is so much more infinitely complex than this that it is an insult to time to even suggest it is only capable of going in one direction. Even the idea of time going in one direction at all is disgustingly simplistic. To suggest that you can only go forwards and/or backwards in time may be one of the most ridiculous assertions of all time. Literally.Zack Mitchell Being Ridiculous Sayings By Zack Mitchell: It is one of an astoundingly large and plentiful number of human misconceptions that time
A pilot without his chart, a scholar without his book, and a soldier without his sword, are alike ridiculous. But, above all these, it is absurd for one to think of being a Christian, without knowledge of the word of God and some skill to use this weapon. - William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete ArmourWilliam Gurnall Being Ridiculous Sayings By William Gurnall: A pilot without his chart, a scholar without his book, and a soldier without his
Not being able to fully understand God is frustrating but it is ridiculous for us to think we have the right to limit God to something we are capable of comprehending. What a stunted, insignificant god that would be! If my mind is the size of a soda can and God is the size of all the oceans, it would be stupid for me to say He is only the small amount of water I can scoop into my little can. God is so much bigger, so far beyond our time-encased, air/food/sleep-dependent lives.Francis Chan Being Ridiculous Sayings By Francis Chan: Not being able to fully understand God is frustrating but it is ridiculous for us
Well, I don't like your clothes. You look perfectly ridiculous in them. Why on earth don't you go up and change? It's perfectly childish to be in mourning for a man who is actually staying a whole week with you in your house as a guest. I call it grotesque.Oscar Wilde Being Ridiculous Sayings By Oscar Wilde: Well, I don't like your clothes. You look perfectly ridiculous in them. Why on earth
Most uncomfortable! Did we lose anyone? Head count! Lee Ark, Leetu, and Brunstetter. Three. Should we count the meech egg? No, I think not. Don't drop it, Brunstetter. I'm to take it home and raise it. Ridiculous. Being a parent at my age. Where were we? Oh, yes, three. One o'rant, two kimens, two minor dragons. Eight. A librarian and a diplomat. Ten.Donita K. Paul Being Ridiculous Sayings By Donita K. Paul: Most uncomfortable! Did we lose anyone? Head count! Lee Ark, Leetu, and Brunstetter. Three. Should
I'll wash. Looks like brute strength is required."

Matilda wasn't about to argue. Might as well put those ridiculous muscles to good use. "I doubt I could write them into submission somehow."

"No," Tanner agreed, heading to the sink and flicking on the taps, intent on filling the industrial size sink and agitating the water as he squirted in some detergent. "You could, however, write about how I heroically and uncomplainingly scrubbed pots for hours while being witty and charming all at the service of some of the city's less fortunate."

"You want me to add in how woodland animals came in from the alley to befriend you?
Amy Andrews Being Ridiculous Sayings By Amy Andrews: I'll wash. Looks like brute strength is required."Matilda wasn't about to argue. Might as well
You can't write about fantasy without being ridiculous.John Banville Being Ridiculous Sayings By John Banville: You can't write about fantasy without being ridiculous.
There is competition in Zen. Let's not be ridiculous. There is competition in everything in life; being a winner in Zen means, competing and winning in the world of enlightenment.Frederick Lenz Being Ridiculous Sayings By Frederick Lenz: There is competition in Zen. Let's not be ridiculous. There is competition in everything in
Letting go of things and not being afraid of being ridiculous or over the top - I think that's the main thing for me to work on.Charlotte Gainsbourg Being Ridiculous Sayings By Charlotte Gainsbourg: Letting go of things and not being afraid of being ridiculous or over the top
Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here in Bumblefug, Kentucky, and noticed that someone had carved that GOD HATES FAG, which, aside from being a grammatical nightmare, is absolutely ridiculous. So I'm changing it to 'God Hates Baguettes.' It's tough to disagree with that. Everybody hates baguettes.John Green Being Ridiculous Sayings By John Green: Well, while you were in the bathroom, I sat down at this picnic table here
I think professional cosmonaut trainer in fact said that we are the only two [with Damian Kulash ] he found fit to be astronauts, which is ridiculous because we are far from fit from being astronauts. So you can imagine what was going on up there.Trish Sie Being Ridiculous Sayings By Trish Sie: I think professional cosmonaut trainer in fact said that we are the only two [with
It was ridiculous really. I had just won a major race despite not being in top form, yet I was going to dope.David Millar Being Ridiculous Sayings By David Millar: It was ridiculous really. I had just won a major race despite not being in
Scott goes to the computer and loads a chart that says something about global warming. Scott says, "See?" Judy says, "I don't think global warming is important, people shouldn't need to use global warming as an excuse to stop being wasteful." Scott says, "How can you not believe this?" Judy says, "There has been golf ball-sized hail storms and hurricanes for a long time, it didn't just start all of the sudden. In the movie Al Gore drives in an SUV." Scott leaves to have a cigarette. Cory says, "Al Gore owns his own farm." Judy stares at the TV. Judy thinks, "No one in this room cares about global warming, this is ridiculous, we are all smoking cigarettes and eating cheese, how can any one of us care about voting? No one in this room cares about anything.Ellen Kennedy Being Ridiculous Sayings By Ellen Kennedy: Scott goes to the computer and loads a chart that says something about global warming.
You, Travis Maddox, are kinda sexy when you're not being a whore," she said, a ridiculous, drunken grin twisting her mouth in different directions.
Abby touched her palm to my cheek. "You know what, Mr. Maddox?"
"What, baby?"
Her expression turned serious. "In another life, I could love you."
"I might love you in this one.
Jamie McGuire Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jamie McGuire: You, Travis Maddox, are kinda sexy when you're not being a whore," she said, a
Obama's great asset has always been an ability to maintain his air of authority without being baritone about it. He can be boring, but he is never ridiculous or pompous.Tina Brown Being Ridiculous Sayings By Tina Brown: Obama's great asset has always been an ability to maintain his air of authority without
Polyamorists call for the respect of the cycles of desire, which are far from being linear. For them, the idea of breaking off a relationship simply because it is going through a dry period is as ridiculous as the idea of chopping down a tree in the winter simply because it has lost its leaves, forgetting that after winter comes spring. Of course, they are no more exempt from the pain of romantic breakups than the next person, but they make such decisions after mature reflection and not as a result of pressure from ruling hormonal, passionate impulses.Francoise Simpere Being Ridiculous Sayings By Francoise Simpere: Polyamorists call for the respect of the cycles of desire, which are far from being
Alas, put no faith in such a bond of union. interpreting freedom as the multiplication and rapid satisfaction of desires, men distort their own nature, for many senseless and foolish desires and habits and ridiculous fancies are fostered in them. They live only for mutual envy, for luxury and ostentation. To have dinners, visits, carriages, rank and slaves to wait on one is looked upon as a necessity, for which life, honor and human feeling are sacrificed, and men even commit suicide if they are unable to satisfy it. We see the same thing among those who are not rich, while the poor drown their unsatisfied need and their envy in drunkenness. But soon they will drink blood instead of wine, they are being led on to it. I ask you, is such a man free?Fyodor Dostoyevsky Being Ridiculous Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: Alas, put no faith in such a bond of union. interpreting freedom as the multiplication
It struck me as pretty ridiculous to be called Mr. Darcy and to stand on your own looking snooty at a party. It's like being called Heathcliff and insisting on spending the entire evening in the garden, shouting "Cathy" and banging your head against a tree.Helen Fielding Being Ridiculous Sayings By Helen Fielding: It struck me as pretty ridiculous to be called Mr. Darcy and to stand on
Now you're being ridiculous. If your mom changed into a carrot, I'd think she'd change back before someone ate her, werewolf or not.Jazz Feylynn Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jazz Feylynn: Now you're being ridiculous. If your mom changed into a carrot, I'd think she'd change
I never knew I was capable of being ridiculous over a man. It's a relief.Gillian Flynn Being Ridiculous Sayings By Gillian Flynn: I never knew I was capable of being ridiculous over a man. It's a relief.
I think I was always realistic - well, not the Percy thing, that was ridiculous - but I never dreamed of being a racing car driver or anything.Alan Titchmarsh Being Ridiculous Sayings By Alan Titchmarsh: I think I was always realistic - well, not the Percy thing, that was ridiculous
I know you love me." Wistful and filled with wonder. "I love you, too."

Somehow, it's not enough. "For real though, babe. The only person I love more than you is myself."

A loud laugh fills the otherwise darkened room. "Oh my god, tell me you did not just say that."

Am I missing something here? "What's so damn funny? I'm being serious."

"The only person you love more than me is you?"

"Yeah, so?"

"You're ridiculous."

"But you love me?"

"So much.
Sara Ney Being Ridiculous Sayings By Sara Ney: I know you love me." Wistful and filled with wonder. "I love you, too."Somehow, it's
Can you feel the rush? Listen quietly. It's there. It's the sound of a life and spirit being set free. God, help me set myself free from ridiculous and unnecessary expectations.Melody Beattie Being Ridiculous Sayings By Melody Beattie: Can you feel the rush? Listen quietly. It's there. It's the sound of a life
Chimerical and empty being, your name alone has caused more blood to flow on the face of the earth than any political war ever will. Return to the nothingness from which the mad hope and ridiculous fright of men dared call you forth to their misfortune. You only appeared as a torment for the human race. What crimes would have been spared the world, if they had choked the first imbecile who thought of speaking of you.Marquis De Sade Being Ridiculous Sayings By Marquis De Sade: Chimerical and empty being, your name alone has caused more blood to flow on the
You know, in my opinion, being ridiculous is sometimes even a good thing, and better than that: we can forgive one another more quickly, and acquire humility more quickly; after all, we can't understand everything at once, we can't begin directly from perfection! In order to achieve perfection, we must first of all fail to understand a great many things! And if we understand too quickly, we may not understand very well.Fyodor Dostoyevsky Being Ridiculous Sayings By Fyodor Dostoyevsky: You know, in my opinion, being ridiculous is sometimes even a good thing, and better
I want to kiss you whenever I feel like it. I want to tell you when you're being ridiculous. I want to make love to you. I want to fuck you. I want to hold you. I want to be yours.Jasinda Wilder Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jasinda Wilder: I want to kiss you whenever I feel like it. I want to tell you
We confess our bad qualities to others out of fear of appearing naive or ridiculous by not being aware of them.Gerald Brenan Being Ridiculous Sayings By Gerald Brenan: We confess our bad qualities to others out of fear of appearing naive or ridiculous
Who I was back then, when I started on 'One Tree Hill,' is so different from who I am now. Coming off Laguna, being 19 years old, and thrown into this odd, ridiculous spotlight, wasn't for me. There have always been haters, and people don't want to give you a chance or the benefit of the doubt, but this show gave me an opportunity.Stephen Colletti Being Ridiculous Sayings By Stephen Colletti: Who I was back then, when I started on 'One Tree Hill,' is so different
I think Sepp Blatter is in danger ... or has reached a point now, where he is being mocked within the game. Whether he's getting too old, I don't know. But things can happen to people in power. Look at some of the despots in Africa ... From a position of great power, he has uttered so many ridiculous statements that he is in danger of seriously damaging his credibility.Alex Ferguson Being Ridiculous Sayings By Alex Ferguson: I think Sepp Blatter is in danger ... or has reached a point now, where
I have wanted to kill myself a hundred times, but somehow I am still in love with life. This ridiculous weakness is perhaps one of our more stupid melancholy propensities, for is there anything more stupid than to be eager to go on carrying a burden which one would gladly throw away, to loathe one's very being and yet to hold it fast, to fondle the snake that devours us until it has eaten our hearts away?Voltaire Being Ridiculous Sayings By Voltaire: I have wanted to kill myself a hundred times, but somehow I am still in
Together. The fact that one single word could send my heart aflutter was utterly ridiculous. I didn't fall for boys I hardly knew. At least, I hadn't until I met Glate.
The night in the shack, things changed between us. The walls I'd built up once the Sectors were formed? Glate had torn them down, and I knew that Lex could see that by the daggers he kept shooting our way.
Was I in love with Glate? No, though I was sure Lex thought otherwise.
Glate was the stability I sought in a world of discord; being with him made things easier to handle. I wasn't weak, but even I had my breaking point, and when I was ready to break, he was there to pick up all of the pieces. He was there, something I could never say for Lex.
"Thank you," I said after a few moments of silence. "For everything."
"Everyone needs a shoulder to lean on," he said. "I'm more than willing to be that shoulder for you, Taylen. I'm willing to be whatever you need me to be. Just know that.
Nicole Sobon Being Ridiculous Sayings By Nicole Sobon: Together. The fact that one single word could send my heart aflutter was utterly ridiculous.
I don't really know of the Jewish tradition of comedy, only the Jewish tradition of not keeping your mouth shut. Complaining about all that is hard, unfair or ridiculous in life-having strong feelings, and not being able to suppress them. That, to me, is Jewish.Fred Melamed Being Ridiculous Sayings By Fred Melamed: I don't really know of the Jewish tradition of comedy, only the Jewish tradition of
It's not going to be that hard to be in Heaven, or the Heavenly City or the Millennium, but you're going to have something to do and something to keep you busy, and you'd be unhappy if you didn't. Wouldn't it be ridiculous after being so busy here if you wound up in Heaven with nothing to do but sit on a cloud playing a harp for a thousand years?-Much less all eternity! I think you'd really get bored.David Berg Being Ridiculous Sayings By David Berg: It's not going to be that hard to be in Heaven, or the Heavenly City
Because it gives him and excuse to be around her
without making it look like he gave in first. That way, he can still seem manly."
"That's ridiculous." Especially the part about Christian being manly.
"Guys do ridiculous things for love.
Richelle Mead Being Ridiculous Sayings By Richelle Mead: Because it gives him and excuse to be around herwithout making it look like he
Each of us is aware he's a material being, subject to the laws of physiology and physics, and that the strength of all our emotions combined cannot counteract those laws. It can only hate them. The eternal belief of lovers and poets in the power of love which is more enduring that death, the finis vitae sed non amoris that has pursued us through the centuries is a lie. But this lie is not ridiculous, it's simply futile. To be a clock on the other hand, measuring the passage of time, one that is smashed and rebuilt over and again, one in whose mechanism despair and love are set in motion by the watchmaker along with the first movements of the cogs. To know one is a repeater of suffering felt ever more deeply as it becomes increasingly comical through a multiple repetitions. To replay human existence - fine.

Being patient will continue to remain something ridiculous as long as tomorrows continue to be something no more than a hypothesis!Mehmet Murat Ildan Being Ridiculous Sayings By Mehmet Murat Ildan: Being patient will continue to remain something ridiculous as long as tomorrows continue to be
He lowered his head and shook it from side to side, giving her a rueful smile. "I find it so ironic that someone I think of as sometimes so brave to the point of stupidity could be so terrified of her own happiness,"
Bree felt the shot hit home, and she couldn't look at him. She ran her finger along the marble topped of the island. "That's ridiculous. Who in their right mind is afraid of being happy?"
"Someone who has lost too much," he moved slowly towards her in gentle careful strides as if he was afraid of startling her.
Fair enough, she did tend to attack him when he tried to corner her, but for some reason, Bree just couldn't tonight. The much too relaxing bubble bath must be making her sluggish.
"Someone who is so used to being told she caused too much pain to others to ever be worthy of happiness herself,"
Bree closed her eyes. "Shut up. Please, Alessandro.

Treaties are like marriage: they aren't entered in to with the thought of betrayal, and once they're concluded one shouldn't be suspicious. And if that doesn't suit somebody, they shouldn't get married. Because you can't become a cuckold without being a husband, but you'll admit that fear of wearing the horns is a pitiful and quite ridiculous justification for enforced celibacy.Andrzej Sapkowski Being Ridiculous Sayings By Andrzej Sapkowski: Treaties are like marriage: they aren't entered in to with the thought of betrayal, and
Most of the Mardukans were laughing, now. Some of them were accusing him of being just too utterly ridiculous.

"Why, the people are the Government. The people would not legislate themselves into slavery."

He wished Otto Harkaman were there. All he knew of history was the little he had gotten from reading some of Harkaman's books, and the long, rambling conversations aboard ship in hyperspace or in the evenings at Rivington. But Harkaman, he was sure, could have furnished hundreds of instances, on scores of planets and over ten centuries of time, in which people had done exactly that and hadn't known what they were doing, even after it was too late.

I don't take so-called "vacations" often. In fact vacations are more stressful than the lives my wife and I worked hard to set up for ourselves in New York. It seems like being on vacation is like normal living, which is not very satisfying. It means we're figuring out what to make for lunch today, and that seems like such an absurd way to live. The issue of dealing with that doesn't seem to be so prominent back home. It sounds so silly and ridiculous, but it's really the way it is. We love what we do, so I prefer being in the studio; that's really living for me.Ryan McGinness Being Ridiculous Sayings By Ryan McGinness: I don't take so-called "vacations" often. In fact vacations are more stressful than the lives
As a child, I'd help my mum cook, and it was ridiculous - she had the correct gadget or utensil for everything. 'Stop! Don't use that, I have exactly the right utensil.' After I left home, I survived on cup-a-meals and never saw myself as being like her. Now I've become her.Kelis Being Ridiculous Sayings By Kelis: As a child, I'd help my mum cook, and it was ridiculous - she had
I could show fight on natural selection having done and doing more for the progress of civilization than you seem inclined to admit. Remember what risk the nations of Europe ran, not so many centuries ago of being overwhelmed by the Turks, and how ridiculous such an idea now is! The more civilised so-called Caucasian races have beaten the Turkish hollow in the struggle for existence. Looking to the world at no very distant date, what an endless number of the lower races will have been eliminated by the higher civilized races throughout the world.Charles Darwin Being Ridiculous Sayings By Charles Darwin: I could show fight on natural selection having done and doing more for the progress
I love to work. I know that sounds ridiculous to say because all people love to work, but I love the homework that goes into acting. I love figuring out different ways of playing a scene. I love the energy of being on set. I love not getting enough sleep because I have to wake up early in the morning.Amanda Schull Being Ridiculous Sayings By Amanda Schull: I love to work. I know that sounds ridiculous to say because all people love
Pleasure at simply being there had him swinging fast across the road, shooting up the snaking lane carved into the rock, then, in shock, slamming on the brakes to avoid crashing into a high iron gate.
He scowled at it for a moment before the intercom beside his car buzzed on.
"Templeton House.May i help you?"
"What the hell is this? Who put this damn thing up?"
"I-Mr. Joshua?"
Recognizing the voice, he struggled to bank down on his irritation. "Annie, open this ridiculous gate,will you? And unless we're under attack, leave the damn thing open.

Hey. Look at me. You're being ridiculous, and not because you have woman parts.Lauren Groff Being Ridiculous Sayings By Lauren Groff: Hey. Look at me. You're being ridiculous, and not because you have woman parts.
Your mother left you. Trevor used you and gave you up. Your father is dead. None of it was your fault, yet you constantly want to saddle yourself with the guilt, and this ridiculous notion of being unworthy. Its fucking destroying you. And not just you. Everyone who cares about you. So just shut up. I may not know the depth of you pain. I may not have been with you through every single dramatic incident that has happened in you life, but I love you, Sarah. And I want you to be happy.S.J. Wright Being Ridiculous Sayings By S.J. Wright: Your mother left you. Trevor used you and gave you up. Your father is dead.
My mother was addicted to being rich, to servants and unlimited charge accounts, to giving lavish dinner parties, to taking frequent first-class trips to Europe. So one might say she was tormented by withdrawal symptoms all through the Great Depression. She was acculturated! Acculturated persons are those who find that they are no longer treated as the sort of people they thought they were, because the outside world has changed. An economic misfortune or a new technology, or being conquered by another country or political faction, can do that to people quicker than you can say "Jack Robinson." As Trout wrote in his "An American Family Marooned on the Planet Pluto": "Nothing wrecks any kind of love more effectively than the discovery that your previously acceptable behavior has become ridiculous." He said in conversation at the 2001 clambake: "If I hadn't learned how to live without a culture and a society, acculturation would have broken my heart a thousand times." ***Kurt Vonnegut Jr. Being Ridiculous Sayings By Kurt Vonnegut Jr.: My mother was addicted to being rich, to servants and unlimited charge accounts, to giving
I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being superficial. It's a matter of joy in life.Sophie Scholl Being Ridiculous Sayings By Sophie Scholl: I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in

You can't win with some people. If you're not in government, you're criticised for being not serious. If you are in government, you're criticised for wanting power. That's the Labour party's line of attack, and it's a bit ridiculous.Vince Cable Being Ridiculous Sayings By Vince Cable: You can't win with some people. If you're not in government, you're criticised for being

As a geologist, I love Earth observations, but it is ridiculous to tie this objective to a 'consensus' that humans are causing global warming when human experience, geologic data and history, and current cooling can argue otherwise. 'Consensus,' as many have said, merely represents the absence of definitive science. You know as well as I, the 'global warming scare' is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making.Harrison Schmitt Being Ridiculous Sayings By Harrison Schmitt: As a geologist, I love Earth observations, but it is ridiculous to tie this objective
Ridiculous, that Finn had to be the one giving comfort. But it had been this way with Tom too. Arguments were tricky things for both sides to win if no one ever gave way first. There was something terribly domestic about the small sacrifice of ego, of first place. Sure, sex was a fine thing, but a fight at the end of which the pair of you were more lovingly entangled than ever, that was closer to being one flesh, one soul, than anything else.Alex Beecroft Being Ridiculous Sayings By Alex Beecroft: Ridiculous, that Finn had to be the one giving comfort. But it had been this
I've noticed most women tend to reject gifts when they think they're not worthy of them. In my experience with women, they've been pre-conditioned to be the nurturer and care-giver, and be selfless in the way they conduct themselves. How ridiculous. A woman should be treated like a woman. She should be cared for and cherished. But in the bedroom she should be taken, bent, and brought to her absolute limit before being fucked until she can barely move.Sebastian Ex Being Ridiculous Sayings By Sebastian Ex: I've noticed most women tend to reject gifts when they think they're not worthy of
I feel really lucky to come home to a place that is so beautiful. sometimes it's sad to leave and go out on the road, missing everything that happens here - but honestly, it's nice to miss the things that you love once in a while. so you never forget to appreciate it. hopefully, i can say this without sounding like a preacher but ... remember to enjoy EVERYTHING. the things that feel good, the things that hurt, rejection, acceptance.. it's all going to make you better. stronger. and more like yourself. every once in a while i get a reminder of how much i'm okay with just being me. i know that sounds ridiculous. cause i'm in this band. we're lucky. we got successful. but who i am is still this nerdy, silly, flamethrower of a person. and it took me 20 years to see that and get it and love it.Hayley Williams Being Ridiculous Sayings By Hayley Williams: I feel really lucky to come home to a place that is so beautiful. sometimes
I don't believe in hell. The idea that a supreme being would make hell is ridiculous. An eternity of pain that results in no learning, reformation or rebirth is a nauseating idea. It's one of the reasons I left Christianity. I simply could not accept that version of God.Anne Rice Being Ridiculous Sayings By Anne Rice: I don't believe in hell. The idea that a supreme being would make hell is
To be honest, I'm more concerned with living my life than writing about my life. I feel like that's really the main thing I know now that I didn't know when I was younger - and that is that you have to have a life to write about one. If you're more worried about having experiences so you can write about them, I think you're kinda being ridiculous, and I think a lot of young people look at it like that.Jeff Tweedy Being Ridiculous Sayings By Jeff Tweedy: To be honest, I'm more concerned with living my life than writing about my life.

The very first idea I ever had about making a film ... my first thought about ever being a filmmaker was when I was sixteen years old and I wanted to make a Viking movie. And I wanted to make it in old Norse, which I was studying at the time. It's odd because at that age that's a stupidly ridiculous idea 'cause how will I ever be a filmmaker.Mel Gibson Being Ridiculous Sayings By Mel Gibson: The very first idea I ever had about making a film ... my first thought
Leigh [Bowery] affected a posh English voice and elongated his vowels, and you never knew if he was being sincere or mocking you. If I ever commented on one of his outfits he would snip, "Oh, thank you, Mr. Boy George. I do value your opinion." And then he would spin and make some ridiculous noise and mince off.Boy George Being Ridiculous Sayings By Boy George: Leigh [Bowery] affected a posh English voice and elongated his vowels, and you never knew
IMDB is ridiculous ... First of all, they had me down as my height being 5ft 7ins. I'm 5ft 10ins. But now they've got me down as 6ft 1ins and three quarters. They also have me down as doing Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I wish they had me down as doing Francis Ford Coppola's next film. That would be a great rumour.Skandar Keynes Being Ridiculous Sayings By Skandar Keynes: IMDB is ridiculous ... First of all, they had me down as my height being
I shall need to courage to do what I'm about to do: speak. And risk the enormous surprise I shall feel at the poverty of the spoken thing. As soon as it's out of my mouth, I'll have to add: that's not it, that's not it! But I cannot be afraid of being ridiculous, I always preferred less to more also out of fear of the ridiculous: because there's also the shattering of modesty. I'm putting off having to speak to myself. Out of fear? And because I don't have a word to say. I don't have a word to say. So why don't I shut up? But if I do not force out the word muteness will swallow me forever in waves.Clarice Lispector Being Ridiculous Sayings By Clarice Lispector: I shall need to courage to do what I'm about to do: speak.
