You don't just - you often have to defend the freedoms of people you don't like, you know, whose work you don't like, because freedom of speech is not just for serious people. It's also for trashy people. So, and, unfortunately, this is at the trashy end of the scale.Salman Rushdie Serious People Sayings By Salman Rushdie: You don't just - you often have to defend the freedoms of people you don't

Too many people confuse being serious with being solemn.John Cleese Serious People Sayings By John Cleese: Too many people confuse being serious with being solemn.
I was always tinkering around with stuff but nothing serious at the time. I was doing animations and drawing like crazy, but I wasn't imagining that I'd be performing music for people, that's for sure.Chad VanGaalen Serious People Sayings By Chad VanGaalen: I was always tinkering around with stuff but nothing serious at the time. I was
It wasn't government that gave us nearly 50 million uninsured Americans and denials for pre-existing conditions. It wasn't government that gave us the yearly and lifetime caps on insurance coverage that have sent so many people into bankruptcy when they've faced a serious illness or accident. It wasn't government that gave us a system in which the gap between what we spend and what we get is so enormous. It was the free market.Paul Waldman Serious People Sayings By Paul Waldman: It wasn't government that gave us nearly 50 million uninsured Americans and denials for pre-existing
I think you're under no obligation whatsoever to forgive anything, to forget anything. You're not required to push away the years of abuse because the abuser now chooses to be sober and in his sobriety regrets his actions. And white may be small and unforgiving of me, I think people who do so at the snap of a dam finger are either liars or are in need of serious therapy. I assume you heard him out, so in my personal opinion, any debt you might owe for your existence is now paid in full. It may be fashionable to hold that terrible actions are indeed terrible, but that hte person inflicting them isn't responbile due to alcohol, drugs, DNA, or GD PMS. He damn well was responsible, and if you decided to loathe him for the rest of your life, I wouldn't blame you for it. How's that? (Cybil to Gage - she ROCKS)Nora Roberts Serious People Sayings By Nora Roberts: I think you're under no obligation whatsoever to forgive anything, to forget anything. You're not
But this man Brown - it was difficult to place him at once. He talked, spreading his fingers out with the volubility of a man who will in the end become a bore. And Eleanor wandered about, holding a cup, telling people about her shower-bath. He wished they would stick to he point. Talk interested him. Serious talk on abstract subjects. 'Was solitude good; was society bad?' That was interesting; but they hopped from thing to thing. When the large man said, 'Solitary confinement is the greatest torture we inflict,' the meagre old woman with the wispy hair at once piped up, laying her hand on her heart, 'It ought to be abolished!' She visited prisons, it seemed.Virginia Woolf Serious People Sayings By Virginia Woolf: But this man Brown - it was difficult to place him at once. He talked,
No degree of prosperity could justify
the accumulation of large amounts of highly toxic substances which nobody knows how to
make safe and which remain an incalculable danger to the whole of creation for historical or
even geological ages. To do such a thing is a transgression against life itself,
a transgression infinitely more serious than any crime perpetrated by man.
The idea that a civilization could sustain itself on such a transgression is an ethical, spiritual, and metaphysical monstrosity. It means conducting the economical affairs of man
as if people did not matter at all.
E.F. Schumacher Serious People Sayings By E.F. Schumacher: No degree of prosperity could justify the accumulation of large amounts of highly toxic substances
You have to be careful with fans, they'll turn on you. They turn quick. Twitter can go dark fast. If you talk about something serious on Twitter, you better be ready. If you try to pull out real facts or talk about political opinions or something religious, forget it. Like if people asked me who I was voting for, you couldn't touch that one.Bruce Campbell Serious People Sayings By Bruce Campbell: You have to be careful with fans, they'll turn on you. They turn quick. Twitter
Sooner or later the serious runner goes through a special, very personal experience that is unknown to most people. Others say it's a new kind of mystical experience that propels you into an elevated sense of consciousness. A flash of joy. A sense of floating as you run. The experience is unique to each of us but when it happens you break through a barrier that separates you from casual runners. Forever. And from that point on, there is no finish line. You run for your life. You begin to be addicted to what running gives you.John Brown Serious People Sayings By John Brown: Sooner or later the serious runner goes through a special, very personal experience that is
I used to be a bit obsessed by acting but not anymore. I do enjoy acting but I probably enjoy it more now because it's easier. I can't work in the theater because to me it's too serious. It's like being in prison for me. I admire people that can do that but I can't do it. I'd rather live my life and do a bit of acting in between.Anthony Hopkins Serious People Sayings By Anthony Hopkins: I used to be a bit obsessed by acting but not anymore. I do enjoy
The problem is some of the populism on both the far left and the far right, it can make a Tweet but not make a policy. And, you know, when you are dealing with issues that are as important and serious as this, I understand why people search for simple solutions.Tony Blair Serious People Sayings By Tony Blair: The problem is some of the populism on both the far left and the far
Captain Smek himself appeared on television for an official speech to humankind.
[ ... ] 'Noble Savages of Earth,' he said. 'Long time we have tried to live together in peace.' (It had been five months.) 'Long time have the Boov suffered under the hostileness and intolerableness of you people. With sad hearts I now concede that Boov and humans will never to exist as one.'
I remember being really excited at this point. Could I possibly be hearing right? Were the Boov about to leave? I was so stupid.
'And so now I generously grant you Human Preserves - gifts of land that will be for humans forever, never to be taken away again, now.'
[ ... ] So that's when we Americans were given Florida. One state for three hundred million people. There were going to be some serious lines for the bathrooms.
Adam Rex Serious People Sayings By Adam Rex: Captain Smek himself appeared on television for an official speech to humankind. [ ... ]
One thing that I don't know if people have come to grips with yet is just how serious ISIS is, just how serious militant Islamists are about Sharia. There is no compromise. There is no halfway. There is no mutual cohabitation plan.Rush Limbaugh Serious People Sayings By Rush Limbaugh: One thing that I don't know if people have come to grips with yet is
I've obviously come from a health background. I was a doctor before I became a pollie and one of the things I'd like to do is to really build on the world-class health system we've got. I'm passionate about climate change because it's also a health issue. Things like extreme weather impact on people's health, the ability of our hospitals to cope, the impact on mental health, on farmers in regional areas - they're all serious health concerns.Richard Di Natale Serious People Sayings By Richard Di Natale: I've obviously come from a health background. I was a doctor before I became a
This combination of the abandonment of evangelism, the divorce between evangelism, apologetics and discipleship, and the failure to appreciate true human diversity is deeply serious. It is probably behind the fact that many Christians, realizing the ineffectiveness of many current approaches and sensing the unpopularity and implausibility of much Christian witness, have simply fallen silent and given up evangelism altogether, sometimes relieved to mask their evasion under a newfound passion for social justice that can forget the gaucheness of evangelism. At best, many of us who take the good news of Jesus seriously are eager and ready to share the good news when we meet people who are open, interested or in need of what we have to share. But we are less effective when we encounter people who are not open, not interested or not needy - in other words, people who are closed, indifferent, hostile, skeptical or apathetic, and therefore require persuasion.Os Guinness Serious People Sayings By Os Guinness: This combination of the abandonment of evangelism, the divorce between evangelism, apologetics and discipleship, and
The thing is," he said, "maybe in the same situation, even knowing what I know now, I'd still do the same thing. I'd still tear that Christian bastard's nails out, get him to talk, find out where the bomb was, hope that the plods got the right street, the right end of it, the right fucking city." He looked at me with what might have been defiance or even a sort of pleading. "But I'd still insist that I was charged and prosecuted." He shook his head again. "Don't you see? You can't have a state where torture is legal, not for anything. You start saying it's only for the most serious cases, but that never lasts. It should always be illegal, for everybody, for everything. You might not stop it. Laws against murder don't stop all murders, do they? But you make sure people don't even think about it unless it's a desperate situation, something immediate. And you have to make the torturer pay. In full. There has to be that disincentive, or they'll all be at it.Iain Banks Serious People Sayings By Iain Banks: The thing is," he said, "maybe in the same situation, even knowing what I know
I don't think there is any serious evidence that we need to be paying people more than 100 times the average wage in order to get high-performing managers.Thomas Piketty Serious People Sayings By Thomas Piketty: I don't think there is any serious evidence that we need to be paying people
I have a suggestion that I think would help fight serious crime. Signs. There are lots of signs for minor infractions: No Smoking, Stay Off the Grass, Keep Out, and they seem to work fairly well. I think we should also have signs for major crimes: Murder Strictly Prohibited, NO Raping People, Thank You for Not Kidnapping Anyone. It's certainly worth a try. I'm convinced Watergate would never have happened if there had just been a sign in the Oval Office that said, Malfeasance of Office Is Strictly Against the Law, or Thank You for Not Undermining the Constitution.George Carlin Serious People Sayings By George Carlin: I have a suggestion that I think would help fight serious crime. Signs. There are
They hate people and their stories; they have hated for so long and with such intensity that in the end the darkness enveloped their whole bodies until their shapes were no longer discernible. That is also why they are so difficult to defeat, because they can disappear into walls or into the ground or float up. They're ferocious and bloodthirsty, and if you're bitten by one you don't just die; a far more serious and terrible fate lies in store: you lose your imagination. (talking about shadows)Fredrik Backman Serious People Sayings By Fredrik Backman: They hate people and their stories; they have hated for so long and with such
We are not easy to help. Nor are we easy to be around. Nobody with a serious illness is easy to be around. Although not obviously physically disabled, we struggle to get things done. Our energy levels are dangerously low. Sometimes, we find it hard to talk. We get angry and frustrated. We fall into despair. We cry, for no apparent reason. Sometimes we find it difficult to eat, or to sleep. Often, we have to go to bed in the afternoon or all day.
So do most people with a serious illness. We are no different.
Sally Brampton Serious People Sayings By Sally Brampton: We are not easy to help. Nor are we easy to be around. Nobody with
These new groups would act as the privatized auxiliary force Rove had been dreaming of for years. Rove told the moneymen, "People call us a vast right-wing conspiracy, but we're really a half-assed right-wing conspiracy. Now," he emphasized, "it's time to get serious.Jane Mayer Serious People Sayings By Jane Mayer: These new groups would act as the privatized auxiliary force Rove had been dreaming of

Years earlier, I might have scoffed, but I'd come to accept that, for Snowden's generation, they played no less serious a role in molding political consciousness, moral reasoning, and an understanding of one's place in the world than literature, television, and film. They, too, often present complex moral dilemmas and provoke contemplation, especially for people beginning to question what they've been taught.Glenn Greenwald Serious People Sayings By Glenn Greenwald: Years earlier, I might have scoffed, but I'd come to accept that, for Snowden's generation,
I never minded being thought of as a pop star. People have always thought I wanted to be seen as a serious musician, but I didn't, I just wanted people to know that I was absolutely serious about pop music.George Michael Serious People Sayings By George Michael: I never minded being thought of as a pop star. People have always thought I
I think if we're going to live in this - in this world - in this technological world where information can be disseminated so quickly, we have to be serious and take firm, strong action against those who are putting American lives at risk. Because this will put people's lives at risk.Peter T. King Serious People Sayings By Peter T. King: I think if we're going to live in this - in this world - in

Before Dwayne entered his inner office, he read one of many comical signs which Francine had put up on the wall in order to amuse people, to remind them of what they so easily forgot: that people didn't have to be serious all the time.Kurt Vonnegut Serious People Sayings By Kurt Vonnegut: Before Dwayne entered his inner office, he read one of many comical signs which Francine
For most people, creativity is a serious business. They forget the telling phrase 'the play of ideas' and think that they need to knuckle down and work more. Often, the reverse is true. They need to play.Julia Cameron Serious People Sayings By Julia Cameron: For most people, creativity is a serious business. They forget the telling phrase 'the play
It's a common myth that athletes and other highly active people need the protein from meat and dairy to fuel their activities and build and repair muscles and other bodily tissues. In fact, there is growing evidence that consumption of too much protein can lead to very serious health issues, including kidney disease, osteoporosis, and cancer. The active body can get all the protein it needs from a diverse, 100% plant-based diet.Sharon Gannon Serious People Sayings By Sharon Gannon: It's a common myth that athletes and other highly active people need the protein from
To be a serious writer requires discipline that is iron fisted. It's sitting down and doing it whether you think you have it in you or not. Everyday. Alone. Without interruption. Contrary to what most people think, there is no glamour to writing. In fact, it's heartbreak most of the time.Harper Lee Serious People Sayings By Harper Lee: To be a serious writer requires discipline that is iron fisted. It's sitting down and
Marriage is the most serious long-term contract a couple will make in their lifetime, but many enter into it with a lack of maturity and knowledge. The growing number of divorces shows how imperative it is that young people be adequately prepared for marriage.Billy Graham Serious People Sayings By Billy Graham: Marriage is the most serious long-term contract a couple will make in their lifetime, but
In the 1990s, Elinor Ostrom, the American political scientist most responsible for reviving serious thought about commons, studies what specifically makes a commons successful. She concluded that a commons must have an evolving set of rules about access and usage and that it must have a way of punishing transgressions. It must also respect the particular character of the resource being managed and the people who have worked with that resource the longest.Douglas Rushkoff Serious People Sayings By Douglas Rushkoff: In the 1990s, Elinor Ostrom, the American political scientist most responsible for reviving serious thought
If we are going to be serious about enforcing the law, we have to have a background record check system to make sure that people don't get weapons who shouldn't.Tim Kaine Serious People Sayings By Tim Kaine: If we are going to be serious about enforcing the law, we have to have

McGlade is a bit, um, abrasive," Jack said. "If he says something rude, you have to promise not to kill him." I smiled. Jack didn't. "I'm serious. Promise me." "I promise. I don't kill people just because they're rude." "Yeah, well, that's because you haven't met Harry yet." SheJ.A. Konrath Serious People Sayings By J.A. Konrath: McGlade is a bit, um, abrasive," Jack said. "If he says something rude, you have
The night copy editors actually handled the papers, every edition, hot off the presses. They left gray fingerprints on their keyboards and desks. They reminded Lincoln of moles. Serious people with thick glasses and gray skin. That might just be the lighting, he thought. Maybe he wouldn't recognize them in the sunshine. In full color. TheyRainbow Rowell Serious People Sayings By Rainbow Rowell: The night copy editors actually handled the papers, every edition, hot off the presses. They

Clearly we must do everything we can to protect our country from the serious potential of another terrorist attack, but we can and must do so in a way that also protects the constitutional rights of the American people and maintains our free society. We can do that without living in an Orwellian world where the government and private corporations know every telephone call that we make, every website we visit, every place we go.Bernie Sanders Serious People Sayings By Bernie Sanders: Clearly we must do everything we can to protect our country from the serious potential

We live in a world with serious class complexes. It is one thing to be a college student with loan debts and another thing to be just dirt poor for your entire life. The challenge is to come up with more complex understandings of where we are, more global awareness of what connects Americans with what is happening with suffering and oppressed people all around the world.Bell Hooks Serious People Sayings By Bell Hooks: We live in a world with serious class complexes. It is one thing to be
The thing you don't realize, my dear girl, is that I have been forced by the economic realities to start taking publishing very seriously. For example, it has been brought to my attention that our ability to continue to pay the hordes of people employed by M&S (God knows how many mouths have to be fed) depends directly on the number of copies of your new book [Life Before Man] that we are able to sell between September and Christmas. In past I have been able to treat this whole thing as a fun game. I have never been troubled by the cavalier explanations about lost manuscripts and fuck-ups of various sorts. Now I have learned that this is a deadly serious game. I don't laugh at jokes about the Canadian postal service. I cry. (in a letter to author Margaret Atwood, dated February, 1979)Jack McClelland Serious People Sayings By Jack McClelland: The thing you don't realize, my dear girl, is that I have been forced by

People use texting and e-mail for everything, but it's not appropriate for somber situations. If you win an Oscar, tweet away, but if you're talking about a death or an illness, you need to use more formal channels. For example: You can promote an employee via e-mail, but you can't fire him. You can ask someone out by e-mail, but you can't break up with her. Happy occasions can be casual. Sad or serious ones require a personal touch.Tim Gunn Serious People Sayings By Tim Gunn: People use texting and e-mail for everything, but it's not appropriate for somber situations. If
Google is your friend, people. I'm serious. It's not a person, it's a collective group of people who want to help each other, and that's a good thing.Elle Casey Serious People Sayings By Elle Casey: Google is your friend, people. I'm serious. It's not a person, it's a collective group
The Lottery, with its weekly pay-out of enormous prizes, was the one public event to which the proles paid serious attention. It was probable that there were some millions of proles for whom the Lottery was the principal if not the only reason for remaining alive. It was their delight, their folly, their anodyne, their intellectual stimulant. Where the Lottery was concerned, even people who could barely read and write seemed capable of intricate calculations and staggering feats of memory. There was a whole tribe of men who made their living simply by selling systems, forecasts, and lucky amulets. Winston had nothing to do with the Lottery, which was managed by the Ministry of Plenty, but he was aware (indeed everyone in the party was aware) that the prizes were largely imaginary. Only small sums were actually paid out, the winners of the big prizes being nonexistent persons.George Orwell Serious People Sayings By George Orwell: The Lottery, with its weekly pay-out of enormous prizes, was the one public event to
I'd be curious to find out, but I don't think people in the entertainment industry are proportionally more or less serious politically than anyone in the landscaping industry.David Cross Serious People Sayings By David Cross: I'd be curious to find out, but I don't think people in the entertainment industry
Starting in '98 when I was researching 'Traffic,' I got to meet really serious people in Washington, which for a screenwriter was kind of a great gift. And I really valued these guys; I stayed in touch with them, and I find their point-of-view quite interesting.Stephen Gaghan Serious People Sayings By Stephen Gaghan: Starting in '98 when I was researching 'Traffic,' I got to meet really serious people
I want young people to ask me if I'm serious. Our young people have been lied to and misled for so long. When I stand on this soapbox, I want young people to ask me that because once they know I'm serious, they'll be willing to ride with me.Nate Parker Serious People Sayings By Nate Parker: I want young people to ask me if I'm serious. Our young people have been
Millions of people have tried meditation and dropped out of it because they took it very seriously. Religion has been thought to be a very serious affair - it is not. One has to understand - at least those who are with me - that religion is a playfulness, a laughter. Take it easy; then things blossom without any tension. You are not taking it easy, you are making it difficult.Rajneesh Serious People Sayings By Rajneesh: Millions of people have tried meditation and dropped out of it because they took it
Rat bites are almost certainly under reported because only the most serious cases attract attention, but even using the most conservative figures, at least fourteen thousand people in the United States are attacked by rats each year.Bill Bryson Serious People Sayings By Bill Bryson: Rat bites are almost certainly under reported because only the most serious cases attract attention,
I didn't pretend to know Eli at all, but even so, I'd noticed that his manner was slightly hard to read. It was something in the way he talked that made it difficult to tell whether he was kidding or serious or what. This bothered me. Or intrigued me. Or both.Sarah Dessen Serious People Sayings By Sarah Dessen: I didn't pretend to know Eli at all, but even so, I'd noticed that his
It's part of the buzz of the city among Christians. It wouldn't surprise me that it got to George Bush. He reads, he picks stuff up, he talks to people. And he's pretty serious about his own Christian beliefs.Charles Colson Serious People Sayings By Charles Colson: It's part of the buzz of the city among Christians. It wouldn't surprise me that
Without rich people who want it done now, who would animate the free world? In theory, you want everyone to live peacefully according to their needs, along the banks of a river. In fact, you worry that you'd die of boredom there. In fact, you get a buzz from someone like Carole Potter, who keeps prize chickens and could teach a graduate course in landscaping; who maintains a staff of four (more in the summers, during High Guest Season); a handsome, slightly ridiculous husband; a beautiful daughter at Harvard and an incorrigible son doing something or other on Bondi Beach; Carole who is charming and self-deprecating and capable, if pushed, of a hostile indifference crueler than any form of rage; who reads novels and goes to movies and theater and yes, yes, bless her, buys art, serious art, about which she actually fucking knows a thing or two.Michael Cunningham Serious People Sayings By Michael Cunningham: Without rich people who want it done now, who would animate the free world? In
It's funny, a lot of people think I take myself seriously because I come off so serious sometimes. But it's not that I take myself seriously, I take what I do seriously.Laurence Fishburne Serious People Sayings By Laurence Fishburne: It's funny, a lot of people think I take myself seriously because I come off
Ukraine had quite serious impact on the many Russians. They could see that ordinary people in Ukraine which is a bordering state, very close to Russia, the people of this state are, they didn't want to tolerate anymore the power abuse by Ukrainian officials.Garry Kasparov Serious People Sayings By Garry Kasparov: Ukraine had quite serious impact on the many Russians. They could see that ordinary people
Sure, but I think the traps should work." I set my hands on my hips, not wanting to tranquilize the bears unless absolutely necessary.

"The ketamine isn't just for the bears." Drew gave me a sympathetic look, then promptly turned and left, Roscoe on his heels.

"I think he expects me to use the ketamine on the film folks." I chuckled, knowing Drew wasn't serious. It was pretty darn close to a joke though. I was proud of my boss, he rarely made jokes.

"Or use it on each other." Cletus gulped the rest of his coffee, smacking his lips before adding. "If these movie people are as crazy as Drew thinks they are, we can self-medicate until we pass out. It's always good sense to have an escape plan.
Penny Reid Serious People Sayings By Penny Reid: Sure, but I think the traps should work." I set my hands on my hips,
Librarians are serious people, seldomgiven to idle jocularity. The reason for this, I believe, is because we are overwhelmed by the enormous number of good books waiting to be read, leaving little time for frivolity. My personal list of must-read books presents a daunting challenge; I can't even imagine the pressure our head librarian must be under.Lynn Austin Serious People Sayings By Lynn Austin: Librarians are serious people, seldomgiven to idle jocularity. The reason for this, I believe, is

You have to know evolution to understand the natural world. And that cannot be a threat to people of faith. There's a serious problem if you are forced by your faith to reject the most well-supported theory in all of science.Michael Shermer Serious People Sayings By Michael Shermer: You have to know evolution to understand the natural world. And that cannot be a

She joked about her fears, but it was the kind of joke where you knew people thought it was ridiculous, and you pretended you thought so too, but underneath you were completely serious.Janet Fitch Serious People Sayings By Janet Fitch: She joked about her fears, but it was the kind of joke where you knew
Would it not be well if the people of God had always tell-tale faces, evincing the blessings and gladness of salvation so clearly that unconverted people might have to call conversion "becoming joyful" instead of "becoming serious"?Hudson Taylor Serious People Sayings By Hudson Taylor: Would it not be well if the people of God had always tell-tale faces, evincing
Lion is a beautiful creature. It's a wonderful creature. But it's easy outrage. And I also believe that this kind of outrage is a consequence of a moral cowardice in the face of other evil, that you transfer your impotence about other - in other arenas to this, because you know that people will agree with you that this is really bad, but there are serious outrages out there that are bigger than a lion.Greg Gutfeld Serious People Sayings By Greg Gutfeld: Lion is a beautiful creature. It's a wonderful creature. But it's easy outrage. And I
His theology is mostly focused on helping people with their physical needs. All that's important, of course, but he'll hit a dry spell someday and need something more than social causes to keep him going." ...
"if you're serious about writing on the deeper life, you simply cannot ignore the centrality of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Catherine Marshall Serious People Sayings By Catherine Marshall: His theology is mostly focused on helping people with their physical needs. All that's important,
Is the purpose of free elections to allow the most clever and vicious person to aggregate power, or is the purpose of free elections to enable the American people to have a serious conversation about their country's future and try to find both a policy and a personality that they think will carry to them that better future?Newt Gingrich Serious People Sayings By Newt Gingrich: Is the purpose of free elections to allow the most clever and vicious person to
The deep problem with the system was a kind of moral inertia. So long as it served the narrow self-interests of everyone inside it, no one on the inside would ever seek to change it, no matter how corrupt or sinister it became - though even to use words like "corrupt" and "sinister" made serious people uncomfortable, and so Brad avoided them.Michael Lewis Serious People Sayings By Michael Lewis: The deep problem with the system was a kind of moral inertia. So long as
People want to go to a musical to be razzled and dazzled, so to have an opportunity to do a musical that feels serious and moving is exciting to me. Especially since people think of me as a silly, funny person, so I like to be able to show that other side of me.Laura Benanti Serious People Sayings By Laura Benanti: People want to go to a musical to be razzled and dazzled, so to have
I walk in just as the bell is ringing, and I'm in a serious daze. It's lucky that my hands seem to know my locker combination, because my brain has checked out. People talk to me, and I nod along, but absolutely nothing penetrates.Becky Albertalli Serious People Sayings By Becky Albertalli: I walk in just as the bell is ringing, and I'm in a serious daze.
People are complex, and I think it's a huge element of what I do, because you have to balance out the fact that you talk about quite serious things with a sense of irony and tongue-in-cheek humor. That's my personality as well.Marina And The Diamonds Serious People Sayings By Marina And The Diamonds: People are complex, and I think it's a huge element of what I do, because
The presence of some serious budgetary myopia is obvious here, as the vast majority of money is spent on studying diseases and virtually none is spent on understanding why healthy people are healthy in the first place.Richard Matthews Serious People Sayings By Richard Matthews: The presence of some serious budgetary myopia is obvious here, as the vast majority of
When emotionally abandoned people describe their childhoods, it is always without feeling. Alice Miller writes, They recount their earliest memories without any sympathy for the child they once were. Very often they show disdain and irony, even derision and cynicism. In general, there is a complete absence of real emotional understanding or serious appreciation of their own childhood vicissitudes and no conception of their true need - beyond the need for achievement. The internalization of the original drama has been so complete that the illusion of a good childhood can be maintained.John Bradshaw Serious People Sayings By John Bradshaw: When emotionally abandoned people describe their childhoods, it is always without feeling. Alice Miller writes,
I'd say people that really inspired me at first were like, Dustin Hoffman, Jim Carrey ... serious Jim Carrey though.Logan Lerman Serious People Sayings By Logan Lerman: I'd say people that really inspired me at first were like, Dustin Hoffman, Jim Carrey
Shouldn't a catastrophe like this be met with rain? An overcast sky? It didn't seem right that things were so quiet, so calm, the day so tranquil when so many people had died, lost loved ones or suffered serious injury.Wildbow Serious People Sayings By Wildbow: Shouldn't a catastrophe like this be met with rain? An overcast sky? It didn't seem
I laugh all the time - at things, people, stuff, whatever. But, I don't laugh onstage because then it's serious business.Steven Wright Serious People Sayings By Steven Wright: I laugh all the time - at things, people, stuff, whatever. But, I don't laugh
I personally enjoy theatre, but preferably I do films so that I can reach up to maximum audience. If you want to give a serious message, it will reach out to maximum people through films. But through theatre, you can hardly reach out to about 3,000 audience at a time.Om Puri Serious People Sayings By Om Puri: I personally enjoy theatre, but preferably I do films so that I can reach up

I want to write about serious things, but I want to write about them in a way that makes them accessible to a large number of people - to take them through the argument by dramatizing the circumstances in which these issues are being discussed.Sebastian Faulks Serious People Sayings By Sebastian Faulks: I want to write about serious things, but I want to write about them in
For most writers, reading is also a very intense experience; they don't read so much as compete. The writer measure's himself against every text he encounters, imagining he could do it better or wishing he had thought of it first. The natural writer would almost always rather be reading, writing, or alone, except of course when he needs to come up for air (that is, for subject matter, food, sex, love, attention). He may be a selfish son of a bitch, he may seem to care more about his work than about the people in his life, he may be a social misfit, a freak, or a smooth operator, but every person who does serious time with a keyboard is attempting to translate his version of the world into words so that he might be understood. Indeed, the great paradox of the writer's life is how much time he spends alone trying to connect with other people.Betsy Lerner Serious People Sayings By Betsy Lerner: For most writers, reading is also a very intense experience; they don't read so much

You sharpen your ideas by reducing yourself to the level of the people you are with and a sense of humour and a complete relaxation, even when you're discussing serious things, does help to mobilise friends around you. And I love that.Nelson Mandela Serious People Sayings By Nelson Mandela: You sharpen your ideas by reducing yourself to the level of the people you are

I am who I am.And you're you.Even if I'm pretty good at basketball or computers, or popular with the girls, that doesn't make me a better person. You can make people laugh and you're kind. When you're serious, you're much more sincere than I am. Like with the girls. I'm not resorting to the cheap cliche about everyone having something to offer, but i'm saying there are a lot of things I admire about you.Koushun Takami Serious People Sayings By Koushun Takami: I am who I am.And you're you.Even if I'm pretty good at basketball or computers,
You have to go in there and hit him. Show him that his tactics don't work. Bernard Hopkins is a fighter that you have to get straight to the point with. You can't lollygag and bullshit because that's his game. Being serious and doing my job throwing punches in the ring, that's my game. I don't come to put on a show for the people. I come to give the people a fight and give them their money's worth; give them real entertainment.Tavoris Cloud Serious People Sayings By Tavoris Cloud: You have to go in there and hit him. Show him that his tactics don't

When you're doing a comedy and you want to somehow satirise people who are taking themselves seriously, I think the most serious genre is the thing you're going to get the most out of. If you're trying to satirise a comedy, it's hard to do that - it doesn't really work as well. But I love the war movie genre and I'm a fan of all those movies that are part of what this movie is.Ben Stiller Serious People Sayings By Ben Stiller: When you're doing a comedy and you want to somehow satirise people who are taking
Self-absorption is always a temptation to young people, and if their religion is of a sort to add to this self-absorption, I feel that it is a serious mistake. If I had my way, the whole subject of feelings and emotions in the religious life would be absolutely ignored. Feelings there will be, doubtless, but they must not be in the least depended on, nor in any sense taken as the test or gauge of one's religion. They ought to be left out of the calculation entirely. You may feel good or you may feel bad, but neither the good feeling nor the bad feeling affects the real thing.Hannah Whitall Smith Serious People Sayings By Hannah Whitall Smith: Self-absorption is always a temptation to young people, and if their religion is of a
I just do little jokes all the time and people think I'm serious. I know exactly who Gordon Ramsay is, I know exactly who Gordon Brown is ... I just say jokes but they think I'm serious which I think is funny and I think I kind of play up the image sometimes because - whatever - it's just entertainment.Paris Hilton Serious People Sayings By Paris Hilton: I just do little jokes all the time and people think I'm serious.

Ashlei was free to spout off how much she loved her savior because Jesus was not about to rear back and tell her He did not quite feel the same way, that He had died for the sins of the world just because it was fun and did not want things to be too serious. He was only thirty-three, after all, and might want to martyr himself for other people.Thomm Quackenbush Serious People Sayings By Thomm Quackenbush: Ashlei was free to spout off how much she loved her savior because Jesus was
I train all the time and the weird thing is I'm in the gym with people between 20 and 25 years old and I look in the mirror and I look better than they do and they are young kids - either they haven't trained hard enough or they aren't serious enough.Hulk Hogan Serious People Sayings By Hulk Hogan: I train all the time and the weird thing is I'm in the gym with
I carefully read each letter myself. Some of them are serious in tone, discussing the meaning of life, invoking the supremacy of the soul, the mystery of every existence. And by a curious reversal, the people who focus most closely on these fundamental questions tend to be people I had known only superficially. Their small talk had masked hidden depths. Had I been blind and deaf, or does it take the harsh light of disaster to show a person's true nature? OtherJean-Dominique Bauby Serious People Sayings By Jean-Dominique Bauby: I carefully read each letter myself. Some of them are serious in tone, discussing the
Some people seem to think there's no trouble just because it hasn't happened yet. If you jump out the window at the 42nd floor and you're still doing fine as you pass the 27th floor, that doesn't mean you don't have a serious problem. I would want to address the problem right now.Charlie Munger Serious People Sayings By Charlie Munger: Some people seem to think there's no trouble just because it hasn't happened yet. If

You have absolutely no regard but yourself and your damned kicks. All you think about is what's hanging between your legs and how much money or fun you can get out of people and then you just throw them aside. Not only that but you're silly about it. It never occurs to you that life is serious and that there are people trying to make something decent out of it instead of just goofing all the time.Jack Kerouac Serious People Sayings By Jack Kerouac: You have absolutely no regard but yourself and your damned kicks.
