The trouble with women is, that when they grow up, they turn into their mothers. The trouble with men is, that they don't.
If you're going to get in trouble for hitting someone, might as well hit them hard.
Let me tell you something - being thought of as a beautiful woman has spared me nothing in life. No heartache, no trouble. Love has been difficult. Beauty is essentially meaningless and it is always transitory.
The Romans never allowed a trouble spot to remain simply to avoid going to war over it, because they knew that wars don't just go away, they are only postponed to someone else's advantage. Therefore, they made war with Philip and Antiochus in Greece, in order not to have to fight them in Italy... They never went by that saying which you constantly hear from the wiseacres of our day, that time heals all things. They trusted rather their own character and prudence- knowing perfectly well that time contains the seeds of all things, good as well as bad.
Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli
Music kept me off the streets and out of trouble and gave me something that was mine that no one could take away from me.
Eddie Van Halen
The little trouble in the world that is not due to love is due to friendship.
E. W. Howe
We got into all the trouble you could ever imagine. We figured that if the Jones boys and all the gangsters ran Chicago, we had our own territory now. All the stores, all the crime, we were in charge of everything, my stepbrother and my brother.
A lot of the stuff about white-supremacist groups was very family-friendly: 'We just love our people.' One the surface, you go, 'Gee, what's wrong with loving your people?' But when you love your people to the exclusion of everything else that's remotely different, that's when you get into trouble.
J. K. Simmons
If there was less sympathy in the world, there would be less trouble in the world.
Everybody loves a thing more if it has cost him trouble: for instance those who have made money love money more than those who have inherited it.
The trouble with the artists this year is they are all obsessed with Twitter and headlines. It feels like they are all getting a bit above themselves.
My own dear mother was a martyr indeed, and it is not to everybody that God grants so easy a way to his great gifts as he did to Hilary and myself, giving us a mother who killed herself with labour and trouble to ensure us keeping the faith.
J. R. R. Tolkien
