The jealous are possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
What is drama but life with the dull bits cut out.
As a real person, he wouldn't last a minute, would he? But drama is about imperfection. And we've moved away from the aspirational hero. We got tired of it, it was dull.

Each moment of a happy lover's hour is worth an age of dull and common life.
Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame!
William Butler Yeats
Once conform, once do what other people do because they do it, and a lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul. She becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and indifferent.
Perfect is very boring, and if you happen to have a different look, that's a celebration of human nature, I think. If we were all symmetrical and perfect, life would be very dull.

J. R. R. Tolkien

E. M. Forster
To do a dull thing with style-now that's what I call art.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
