misery

Art is the stored honey of the human soul, gathered on wings of misery and travail.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That he delights in the misery of others no man will confess, and yet what other motive can make a father cruel?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is by attempting to reach the top in a single leap that so much misery is produced in the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The chief misery of the decline of the faculties, and a main cause of the irritability that often goes with it, is evidently the isolation, the lack of customary appreciation and influence, which only the rarest tact and thoughtfulness on the part of others can alleviate.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The rare pleasure of being seen for what one is, compensates for the misery of being it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We live in a world which is full of misery and ignorance, and the plain duty of each and all of us is to try to make the little corner he can influence somewhat less miserable and somewhat less ignorant than it was before he entered it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is nothing, Sir, too little for so little a creature as man. It is by studying little things that we attain the great art of having as little misery and as much happiness as possible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Friends love misery, in fact. Sometimes, especially if we are too lucky or too successful or too pretty, our misery is the only thing that endears us to our friends.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At one time my only wish was to be a police official. It seemed to me to be an occupation for my sleepless intriguing mind. I had the idea that there, among criminals, were people to fight: clever, vigorous, crafty fellows. Later I realized that it was good that I did not become one, for most police cases involve misery and wretchedness -- not crimes and scandals.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The happiness and misery of men depend no less on temper than fortune.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is misery, you know, unspeakable misery for the man who lives alone and who detests sordid, casual affairs; not old enough to do without women, but not young enough to be able to go and look for one without shame!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Philosophers should consider the fact that the greatest happiness principle can easily be made an excuse for a benevolent dictatorship. We should replace it by a more modest and more realistic principle -- the principle that the fight against avoidable misery should be a recognized aim of public policy, while the increase of happiness should be left, in the main, to private initiative.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
So long as the law considers all these human beings, with beating hearts and living affections, only as so many things belonging to the master -- so long as the failure, or misfortune, or imprudence, or death of the kindest owner, may cause them any day to exchange a life of kind protection and indulgence for one of hopeless misery and toil -- so long it is impossible to make anything beautiful or desirable in the best-regulated administration of slavery.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Through our sunless lanes creeps Poverty with her hungry eyes, and Sin with his sodden face follows close behind her. Misery wakes us in the morning and Shame sits with us at night.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The more I blamed my misery on the fame and success I had achieved in pictures, the more famour and successful I seemed destined to become.More [11/04/2006 12:11:00]
Elizabeth Bennet: If I was uncivil, then that is some excuse. But I have other reasons, you know I do.
Mr. Darcy: What reasons?
Elizabeth Bennet: Do you think anything might tempt me to accept the hand of the man who has ruined, perhaps for ever, the happiness of a most beloved sister? Do you deny that you separated a young couple who loved each other, exposing your friend to censure of the world for caprice and my sister to derision for disappointed hopes, involving them both in misery of the acutest kind?
Mr. Darcy: I do not deny it.
Elizabeth Bennet: How could you do it?More [04/25/2007 12:04:00]
Ché: Oh, what a circus, oh, what a show! Argentina has gone to town over the death of an actress called Eva Peron. We've all gone crazy, mourning all day and mourning all night, falling over ourselves to get all of the misery right. Oh, what an exit! That's how to go. When they're ringing your curtain down, demand to be buried like Eva Peron. It's quite a sunset, and good for the country in a roundabout way. We've made the front page of all the world's papers today.More [10/18/2007 12:10:00]
Ray Kinsella: Don't you miss being involved?
Terence Mann: I was the East Coast distributor of "involved." I ate it, drank it, and breathed it... Then they killed Martin, Bobby, and they elected Tricky Dick twice, and people like you must think I'm miserable because I'm not involved anymore. Well, I've got news for you. I spent all my misery years ago. I have no more pain for anything. I gave at the office.More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
Happiness: an agreeable sensation arising from contemplating the misery of another.More [12/19/2007 12:12:00]

Rob: What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?More [03/12/2008 12:03:00]
[Alex is hiding in the closet and Mr. Unger tries to unlock the door]
Earl Unger: I'm coming for you, shorty, to pay you back for all the misery you caused me.
Alice: Mr. Unger, what are you doing?
Earl Unger: He's in the closet. Scaring him a little, just before I grab him. And behind door number one!
[Mr. Unger opens the closet door and Alex just disappeared]
Earl Unger: Towels.
Burton Jernigan: Hmph.
Earl Unger: I saw this door close.
Alice: Idiot.
Earl Unger: Would I make it up? Why? What's the point? We working on commission here?More [03/22/2008 12:03:00]

Lemony Snicket: Dear reader, there are people in the world who know no misery and woe. And they take comfort in cheerful films about twittering birds and giggling elves. There are people who know that there's always a mystery to be solved. And they take comfort in researching and writing down any important evidence. But this story is not about such people. This story is about the Baudelaires. And they are the sort of people who know that there's always something. Something to invent, something to read, something to bite, and something to do, to make a sanctuary, no matter how small. And for this reason, I am happy to say, the Baudelaires were very fortunate indeed.More [07/15/2008 12:07:00]

Colt: Nice weather? You think we're having... nice weather? I guess you didn't lose the only one that meant anything in your life. I guess you don't feel burned out by the human misery and despair perpetrated by the criminal vermin that infest every pore of this decaying city, forcing you to guzzle cheap wine and cheaper whiskey to dull the pain that shatters your heart, rips at your soul, and keeps your days forever gray. What flavor Icee you got today?More [08/06/2008 12:08:00]

A Jewish Barber:
I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge as made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The airplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men; cries out for universal brotherhood; for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don't hate! Only the unloved hate; the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers! Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it is written that the kingdom of God is within man, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy, let us use that power. Let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfill that promise. They never will! Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfill that promise. Let us fight to free the world! To do away with national barriers! To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance! Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness. Soldiers, in the name of democracy, let us all unite! Hannah, can you hear me? Wherever you are, look up Hannah! The clouds are lifting! The sun is breaking through! We are coming out of the darkness into the light! We are coming into a new world; a kindlier world, where men will rise above their hate, their greed, and brutality. Look up, Hannah! The soul of man has been given wings and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow! Into the light of hope, into the future! The glorious future, that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up, Hannah. Look up!



Mr. Jaeckel:
Hannah, did you hear that?



Hannah:

Laura Jesson:
[thinking to herself] This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. They'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore. But I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no I don't want that time to come hither. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Doctor:
Well, in time we'll all get back to our own stuff again. The war will get swallowed up, and seem like it never happened.



Captain Murrell:
Yes, but it won't be the same as it was. We won't have that feeling of permanency that we had before. We've learned a hard truth.



Doctor:
How do you mean?



Captain Murrell:
That there's no end to misery and destruction. You cut the head off a snake, and it grows another one. You cut that one off, and you find another. You can't kill it, because it's something within ourselves. You can call it the enemy if you want to, but it's part of us; we're all men.

Margot:
Sometimes I wish the end would come, whenever.



Mrs. Edith Frank:
Margot!



Margot:
At least we'd know where we were.



Mrs. Edith Frank:
You should be ashamed of yourself, talking that way. Think how lucky we are, think of the thousands dying in the war every day, think of the people in concentration camps.



Anne Frank:
What's the good of that? What's the good of thinking of misery when you're already miserable?

Ernst Janning:
There was a fever over the land. A fever of disgrace, of indignity, of hunger. We had a democracy, yes, but it was torn by elements within. Above all, there was fear. Fear of today, fear of tomorrow, fear of our neighbors, and fear of ourselves. Only when you understand that - can you understand what Hitler meant to us. Because he said to us: 'Lift your heads! Be proud to be German! There are devils among us. Communists, Liberals, Jews, Gypsies! Once these devils will be destroyed, your misery will be destroyed.' It was the old, old story of the sacrifical lamb. What about those of us who knew better? We who knew the words were lies and worse than lies? Why did we sit silent? Why did we take part? Because we loved our country! What difference does it make if a few political extremists lose their rights? What difference does it make if a few racial minorities lose their rights? It is only a passing phase. It is only a stage we are going through. It will be discarded sooner or later. Hitler himself will be discarded... sooner or later. The country is in danger. We will march out of the shadows. We will go forward. Forward is the great password. And history tells how well we succeeded, your honor. We succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. The very elements of hate and power about Hitler that mesmerized Germany, mesmerized the world! We found ourselves with sudden powerful allies. Things that had been denied to us as a democracy were open to us now. The world said 'go ahead, take it, take it! Take Sudetenland, take the Rhineland - remilitarize it - take all of Austria, take it! And then one day we looked around and found that we were in an even more terrible danger. The ritual began in this courtoom swept over the land like a raging, roaring disease. What was going to be a passing phase had become the way of life. Your honor, I was content to sit silent during this trial. I was content to tend my roses. I was even content to let counsel try to save my name, until I realized that in order to save it, he would have to raise the specter again. You have seen him do it - he has done it here in this courtroom. He has suggested that the Third Reich worked for the benefit of people. He has suggested that we sterilized men for the welfare of the country. He has suggested that perhaps the old Jew did sleep with the sixteen year old girl, after all. Once more it is being done for love of country. It is not easy to tell the truth; but if there is to be any salvation for Germany, we who know our guilt must admit it... whatever the pain and humiliation.

Tracy Quartermaine:
Lorenzo Alcazar's niece was murdered in our home.



Dillon Quartermaine:
Mom, you're trying to make sure that Lorenzo Alcazar blames Georgie for what happened to Sage. I don't know what it is. I don't know, but for some strange reason, you've got it in your head that you don't want Georgie and me to be together, and you're going to use anything you can, including Sage's death, to get what you want. You don't care about the consequences of what you do. You don't care about weight of the misery that you cause people. I don't know how you do it. How do you be so heartless? Do you even have compassion? Do you even have empathy? how about plan old common decency?



Tracy Quartermaine:
I won't apologize for protecting you.



Dillon Quartermaine:
All right, you know, fine. Then do me a favor - don't protect me. Don't do anything for me, don't do anything in my name. I don't know. Georgie and I are together, there's nothing you can do about that except turn around and walk away.

Dr. Curt Taylor:
Keith Ritchie came to realize, at the cost of his own life, that Man is the greatest creature in the Universe. He learned that a measure of perfection can only be slowly attained, from within ourselves. He sought a different path, and found death... fire... disillusionment... loss. War, misery and strife have always been with us, and we shall always strive to overcome them. But the answer is to be found from within, not from without. It must come from learning; it must come from the very heart of Man himself.

Jonathan Harker:
Mina, how can you say such things? If I could send his soul to burning hell forever, I would do it.



Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra:
Hush, Jonathan. You must be pitiful to him, just as some day you may have to be pitiful to me.



Wilhelmina 'Mina' Westenra:

Prince Humperdinck:
First things first, to the death.



Westley:
No. To the pain.



Prince Humperdinck:
I don't think I'm quite familiar with that phrase.



Westley:
I'll explain and I'll use small words so that you'll be sure to understand, you warthog faced buffoon.



Prince Humperdinck:
That may be the first time in my life a man has dared insult me.



Westley:
It won't be the last. To the pain means the first thing you will lose will be your feet below the ankles. Then your hands at the wrists. Next your nose.



Prince Humperdinck:
And then my tongue I suppose, I killed you too quickly the last time. A mistake I don't mean to duplicate tonight.



Westley:
I wasn't finished. The next thing you will lose will be your left eye followed by your right.



Prince Humperdinck:
And then my ears, I understand let's get on with it.



Westley:
WRONG. Your ears you keep and I'll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out, "Dear God! What is that thing," will echo in your perfect ears. That is what to the pain means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever.



Prince Humperdinck:
I think your bluffing.



Westley:
It's possible, Pig, I might be bluffing. It's conceivable, you miserable, vomitous mass, that I'm only lying here because I lack the strength to stand. But, then again... perhaps I have the strength after all.

Mephisto:
Men have always fought each other, always creating chaos. That's familiar and safe. They know where they are in those circumstances, but to hazard a step into the unknown and actually love on another is far too risky for them. So if the demons do invade the world, bringing terror and misery with them, don't you think that men might welcome them as bearers of what they desire?



Kyoya:
Are you one of them? Are you, Mephisto?

Manny Coon:
I was born in a brothel in a town which now no longer exists. When I was born, my mother mistook the afterbirth as my twin. And the cuter one, too, apparently, as I was immediately sold to the cleaning woman for a stamp. The cleaning woman, who went by the name of Magda, lived out at the edge of town in an abandoned freezer with a bum named Lucky. Magda and Lucky used to fight over whose turn it was to beat me. So to distract myself from the misery of my surroundings, I began to draw. And I drew whatever I could get my hands on - flattened Kleenex boxes, tin cans, fruit... but nothing fresh. I never had a piece of fresh fruit until I was twenty-one, and it was a lime. I still take the existence of peaches on hearsay. I was kicked out of the freezer when I reached puberty, so I hit the open road in search of fame and fortune. For the next ten years I wandered, sorta like that German Shepherd, Hobo, except I don't lick strangers' faces unless I'm fucking them.

That's why I'm here Johnny... to kill myself.


[Eddie then lays back on the ground with a look of misery on his face and whispers silently]



Eddie Lomax:
I need your okay. I need your okay man.



Johnny:
[sees the Hogan's truck approaching] Eddie... you may not need my okay.

Harry S. Truman:
The seeds of totalitarian regimes are nurtured by misery and woe. They spread and grow in their evil ways. They've reached their full length. The hope of the people for a better life hs died. WE must keep that hope alive.

Fanny Price:
Maria was married on Saturday. In all important preparations of mind she was complete, being prepared for matrimony by a hatred of home, by the misery of disappointed affection, and contempt of the man she was to marry. The bride was elegantly dressed and the two bridesmaids were duly inferior. Her mother stood with salts, expecting to be agitated, and her aunt tried to cry. Marriage is indeed a maneuvering business.

Marty Livingston:
I had a terrific time in college. I don't see why this is so hard for you to grasp? Why are you out to make college out to be a bad thing? A negative experience? YOU had a bad time? Well, too bad. Get over it. Stop trying to impose YOUR misery on everybody else. "Oh, life is bad. Life is horrible." Life is tough on you, well, boo-hoo.

Walker:
Why do you wanna be a doctor anyhow?



Chris Hammond:
So I can help people.



Walker:
How? By keeping them alive today so you can prolong their misery until tomorrow?

Dr. Janice Polito:
The genie of Citadel station is out of the bottle, and I am the cause. I can't bear to be Pandora. And I'm not brave enough to wait around and see the death and misery I have caused... This is my last transmission, my friend. Be careful... I think SHODAN has plans for you.

Dr. Stephen Maturin:
They're exhausted. These men are exhausted. You've pushed them too hard.



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
Stephen, I invite you to this cabin as my friend. Not to criticise nor to comment on my command.



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
Well, shall I leave you until you're in a more harmonious frame of mind.


[he stands and is about to leave]



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
What would you have me do, Stephen?



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
[turns back to him and knows what to say] Tip the ship's grog over the side.



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
Stop their grog?



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
Nagle was drunk when he insulted Hollom. Did you know that?



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
Stop 30 years of privilege and tradition. I'd rather have them three sheets to the wind than face a mutiny.



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
You see I'm rather understanding of mutinies. Men pressed from their homes, confined for months aboard a wooden prison...



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
I respect your right to disagree with me, but I can only afford one rebel on this ship. I hate it when you talk of the service in this way. It makes me feel so very low. You think I want to flog Nagle? A man who hacked the ropes that sent his mate to his death? Under MY orders? Do you not see? The only things that keep this wooden world together are hard work...



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
Jack, the man failed to salute. There's hierarchies even in nature. There is no disdain in nature. There is no...



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
Men must be governed! Often not wisely, but governed nonetheless.



Dr. Stephen Maturin:
That's the excuse of every tyrant in history, from Nero to Bonaparte. I, for one, am opposed to authority. It is an egg of misery and opression.



Capt. Jack Aubrey:
You've come to the wrong shop for anarchy, brother.

Roy Cohn:
[under the impression that Belize is the Angel of Death] Can I ask you something, sir?



Belize:
[going along with it] "Sir"?



Roy Cohn:
What's it like? After?



Belize:
After...?



Roy Cohn:
This misery ends?



Belize:
Hell or heaven?



Roy Cohn:
...heh...



Belize:
Like San Francisco.



Roy Cohn:
A city! Good! I was worried... it'd be a garden. I hate that shit.



Belize:
Mmmm. Big city. Overgrown with weeds, but flowering weeds. On every corner a wrecking crew and something new and crooked going up catty corner to that. Windows missing in every edifice like broken teeth, gritty wind, and a gray high sky full of ravens.



Roy Cohn:
Isaiah.



Belize:
Prophet birds, Roy. Piles of trash, but lapidary like rubies and obsidian, and diamond-colored cowspit streamers in the wind. And voting booths. And everyone in Balenciaga gowns with red corsages, and big dance palaces full of music and lights and racial impurity and gender confusion. And all the deities are creole, mulatto, brown as the mouths of rivers. Race, taste and history finally overcome. And you ain't there.



Roy Cohn:
And Heaven?



Belize:
That was Heaven, Roy.



Roy Cohn:
The fuck it was!

Justin:
The clock is ticking, brothers and sisters, counting down to Armageddon. The worm reveals himself in many guises across this once great land; from the intellectual elite cruelly indoctrinating our children with the savage blasphemy of Darwin, to the craven Hollywood pagans, corrupting them in the darkness of the local bijou, from the false prophets cowering behind our nation's pulpits to the vile parasites in our banks and boardrooms and the godless politicians, growing fat on the misery of their constituents. The signs of the end times are all around us, etched in blood and fire by the left hand of god. You have but to open your eyes, brothers and sisters. The truth is that the Devil is here. The Anti-Christ, the Child of Lies, the Son of Darkness walks among us cloaked in the flesh of a man. Does the Lord not weep at this degradation? Does He not tremble with righteous fury? And shall he not seek retribution? I open my eyes and I see a black sky that tears apart and screams with a voice that is thunder, 'Rise up, rise up brothers and sisters and take your place at my side. For you shall be my scythe and your face shall shine like a thousand suns and the streets shall be sanctified by the steaming black blood of the heretics.' And together brothers and sisters, together we shall build a shining temple, a kingdom that will last for thousands and thousands of years.
