I wanted to race cars. I didn't like school, and all I wanted to do was work on cars. But right before I graduated, I got into a really bad car accident, and I spent that summer in the hospital thinking about where I was heading. I decided to take education more seriously and go to a community college.
I think every girl's dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad anymore.
Unless you have bad times, you can't appreciate the good times.
Most bad behaviour comes from insecurity.
If anything, we should feel sorry for the people who want us to feel bad about ourselves, because they are the ones struggling for approval. In middle school, bullies tortured other kids because they thought it would make people like them more.
It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.
Judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement.
I'm a good girl because I really believe in love, integrity, and respect. I'm a bad girl because I like to tease.
When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it - a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand - as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there's a clash between the two, it's bad art.
Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions in the past.
The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck.
He who busies himself with things other than improvement of his own self becomes perplexed in darkness and entangled in ruin. His evil spirits immerse him deep in vices and make his bad actions seem handsome.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
If I'm having a really bad day, I always have a girlfriend - or even a guy friend - who I can call. They'll listen to me wallow for a minute and then be like, 'Okay, let's stop. Everything's great. Let's figure out how to fix whatever's bothering you.'
Autism is a neurological disorder. It's not caused by bad parenting. It's caused by, you know, abnormal development in the brain. The emotional circuits in the brain are abnormal. And there also are differences in the white matter, which is the brain's computer cables that hook up the different brain departments.
I think I like playing the bad girl. I like complicated. I like flawed, messed up complicated. It's more interesting.
When you don't manage your life well, you become angry and frustrated as things don't go as intended, and our bad mood is a sign showing we were not able to resolve the conflict.
There is no evidence that dogs have the kind of complex emotional lives and value systems that we do. It's one reason why we love them so much, in fact. They are neither "good" nor "bad." They don't hold grudges, act in petty ways, or seek revenge. They read our moods, but not our minds.
When I wrote 'The Giver,' it contained no so-called 'bad words.' It was set, after all, in a mythical, futuristic, and Utopian society. Not only was there no poverty, divorce, racism, sexism, pollution, or violence in the world of 'The Giver'; there was also careful attention paid to language: to its fluency, precision, and power.
Associate with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation; for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
Globalization is not a monolithic force but an evolving set of consequences - some good, some bad and some unintended. It is the new reality.
John B. Larson
Come what may, all bad fortune is to be conquered by endurance.
Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.
A good man can be stupid and still be good. But a bad man must have brains.
You stand with the least likely to succeed until success is succeeded by something more valuable: kinship. You stand with the belligerent, the surly and the badly behaved until bad behavior is recognized for the language it is: the vocabulary of the deeply wounded and of those whose burdens are more than they can bear.
John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
