There are plenty of good five cent cigars in the country. The trouble is they cost a quarter.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide. In this sense, truth, even if it does not prevail in public, possesses an ineradicable primacy over all falsehoods.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In larger things we are convivial; what causes trouble is the trivial.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is indolence... Indolence and love of ease; a want of all laudable ambition, of taste for good company, or of inclination to take the trouble of being agreeable, which make men clergymen. A clergyman has nothing to do but be slovenly and selfish; read the newspaper, watch the weather, and quarrel with his wife. His curate does all the work and the business of his own life is to dine.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I am really sorry to see my countrymen trouble themselves about politics. If men were wise, the most arbitrary princes could not hurt them. If they are not wise, the freest government is compelled to be a tyranny. Princes appear to me to be fools. Houses of Commons and Houses of Lords appear to me to be fools; they seem to me to be something else besides human life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Dissent is the native activity of the scientist, and it has got him into a good deal of trouble in the last years. But if that is cut off, what is left will not be a scientist. And I doubt whether it will be a man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most of our executives make very sound decisions. The trouble is many of them have turned out not to have been right.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Next week Reagan will probably announce that American scientists have discovered that the entire U.S. agricultural surplus can be compacted into a giant tomato one thousand miles across, which will be suspended above the Kremlin from a cluster of U.S. satellites flying in geosynchronous orbit. At the first sign of trouble the satellites will drop the tomato on the Kremlin, drowning the fractious Muscovites in ketchup.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The joy of youth is to disobey; but the trouble is that there are no longer any orders.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Entrepreneurship is the last refuge of the trouble making individual.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The trouble with Reason is that it becomes meaningless at the exact point where it refuses to act.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs. Self-conceit often regards it as a sign of weakness to admit that a belief to which we have once committed ourselves is wrong. We get so identified with an idea that it is literally a pet notion and we rise to its defense and stop our eyes and ears to anything different.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble with being educated is that it takes a long time; it uses up the better part of your life and when you are finished what you know is that you would have benefited more by going into banking.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Disturbances in society are never more fearful than when those who are stirring up the trouble can use the pretext of religion to mask their true designs.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble you can get into, just cause you want 5, 000 bucks.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble with most people is that they think with their hopes or fears or wishes, rather than their minds.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Harold, like the rest of us, had many impressions which saved him the trouble of distinct ideas.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most of the trouble in the world is caused by people wanting to be important.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Amongst the learned the lawyers claim first place, the most self-satisfied class of people, as they roll their rock of Sisyphus and string together six hundred laws in the same breath, no matter whether relevant or not, piling up opinion on opinion and gloss on gloss to make their profession seem the most difficult of all. Anything which causes trouble has special merit in their eyes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I used to trouble about what life was for -- now being alive seems sufficient reason.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement -- and we will make the goal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Those who govern, having much business on their hands, do not generally like to take the trouble of considering and carrying into execution new projects. The best public measures are therefore seldom adopted from previous wisdom, but forced by the occasion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Man has, as it were, become a kind of prosthetic God. When he puts on all his auxiliary organs, he is truly magnificent; but those organs have not grown on him and they still give him much trouble at times.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
With me a change of trouble is as good as a vacation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some women like to sit down with trouble as if it were knitting.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Never bear more than one kind of trouble at a time. Some people bear three kinds; all they have had, all they have now, and all they expect to have.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This is an age of intellectual sauces, of essence, of distillation. We have conclusions without deductions, abridgments of history and abridgments of science without leading facts. We have animals for literature, Cabinet Encyclopaedias, Family Libraries, Diffusion Societies, and heaven knows what else! What is all this for? Not to add knowledge to the learned, but to tell points to the ignorant, without giving them the trouble to acquire the links. Oh! it is sad work. And the result will be injurious to all classes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If nations always moved from one set of furnished rooms to another -- and always into a better set -- things might be easier, but the trouble is that there is no one to prepare the new rooms. The future is worse than the ocean -- there is nothing there. It will be what men and circumstances make it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The little trouble in the world that is not due to love is due to friendship.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The way out of trouble is never as simple as the way in.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The attitude of unhappiness is not only painful, it is mean and ugly. What can be more base and unworthy than the pining, puling, mumping mood, no matter by what outward ills it may have been engendered? What is more injurious to others? What less helpful as a way out of the difficulty? It but fastens and perpetuates the trouble which occasioned it, and increases the total evil of the situation. At all costs, then, we ought to reduce the sway of that mood; we ought to scout it in ourselves and others, and never show it tolerance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Lately... Americans have begun to understand that trouble does not start somewhere on the other side of town. It seems to originate inside the absolute middle of the homemade cherry pie. In our history, the state has failed to respond to the weak. You could be white, male, Presbyterian and heterosexual besides, but if you get fired or if you get sick tomorrow, you might as well be Black, for all the state will want to hear from you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the duty of the human understanding to understand that there are things which it cannot understand, and what those things are. Human understanding has vulgarly occupied itself with nothing but understanding, but if it would only take the trouble to understand itself at the same time it would simply have to posit the paradox.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble in America is not that we are making too many mistakes, but that we are making too few.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble with our age is that it is all signpost and no destination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The pleasures of the world are deceitful; they promise more than they give. They trouble us in seeking them, they do not satisfy us when possessing them and they make us despair in losing them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We must do our business faithfully, without trouble or disquiet, recalling our mind to God mildly, and with tranquility, as often as we find it wandering from him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I wish people that have trouble communicating would just shut up!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The principle of majority rule is the mildest form in which the force of numbers can be exercised. It is a pacific substitute for civil war in which the opposing armies are counted and the victory is awarded to the larger before any blood is shed. Except in the sacred tests of democracy and in the incantations of the orators, we hardly take the trouble to pretend that the rule of the majority is not at bottom a rule of force.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The greatest trouble with most of us is that our demands upon ourselves are so feeble, the call upon the great within of us so weak and intermittent that it makes no impression upon the creative energies; it lacks the force that transmutes desires into realities.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Most of us know perfectly well what we ought to do; our trouble is that we do not want to do it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The trouble with young writers is that they are all in their sixties.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
