Quote of the Day
Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.
C. S. Lewis
I'm a huge supporter of animal rights - and I've been an outspoken critic of the cruelties routinely inflicted on livestock at factory farms. But it really bothers me that the mistreatment of pigs and chickens and cows seems to attract a lot more attention and spark a lot more outrage than the abuse of immigrant workers.
The tragedy of modern man is not that he knows less and less about the meaning of his own life, but that it bothers him less and less.
I'm not passive aggressive. If something bothers me, I think about it, then I act on it. I express it.
It obviously bothers people when Real Madrid win. It makes them jealous. There isn't a level playing field.

To the dumb question, 'Why me?' the cosmos barely bothers to return the reply, 'Why not?'
I have an odd theory on happiness, and it bothers people. My general theory is that happiness is a reward for an animal doing what it should be doing. So if a horse runs, it feels happy. Or if you are too thin, you can't be happy, because evolution wants you to be tense and anxious, trying to wake up in the morning looking for food.
James D. Watson
Seduction is often difficult to distinguish from rape. In seduction, the rapist often bothers to buy a bottle of wine.
What bothers me is that there is so much emphasis on food, rather than gathering and meeting - so that there is all this effort in creating the right food, whereas the food is only a small part of whether the encounter is successful or not.
Alain de Botton
There's a part of you - the born-again part, your spirit - that's dead to sin. That's why it bothers you now when you sin. The 'wilderness' part of you - your soul - is your unrenewed mind, out-of-control emotions, and stubborn will.
Ever since I was a little girl, I've worried too much. It always bothers me because sometimes you end up worrying more about the worry and you are not resolving things that are right there in front of you. I have been like that all my life, and it's hard to change.
What bothers me, I guess, is when I get these messages from girls on Twitter, and they're like, 'God, you're my idol, I really admire you.' It's like, 'Admire me for what? What have I done?' It's not that being in a Burberry campaign, or walking in a Chanel show is nothing. It's just... I know I can do more.
Who bothers to cook TV dinners? I suck them frozen.
I have an obsession with knowing the answers to things. When I don't know what happened, it just bothers me, gets under my skin, and I need to write about it.
What bothers me about TV is that it tends to take our minds off our minds.
What bothers most critics of my work is the goofiness. One reviewer said I need to make up my mind if want to be funny or serious. My response is that I will make up my mind when God does, because life is a commingling of the sacred and the profane, good and evil. To try and separate them is fallacy.
I think it bothers people to see people that are happy and successful. So they try to find what's wrong with them.

I just can't go to the mall. It bothers me that I can't be outside very often.
I like a calm life where nobody bothers me.
And people coming up asking for autographs, there's only one time when it kind of bothers me: when I'm eating.
I don't imagine my parents are too excited about my kind of life. The surrounding weirdness bothers them. Still, I think they're pretty good. Their lives are based on what their friends think, just like ours are.
Email is very informal, a memo. But I find that not signing off or not having a salutation bothers me.
John F. Kennedy
