I can't even explain to you how terrible that feels, that I equate dating a woman with punishment, shame, guilt, disappointment, reproach, reprimand, persecution. It's a nightmare.
You can compromise between good, better, and best, and you can compromise between bad and worse and terrible. But you can't compromise between good and evil. And now people look at the other side as a completely different kind of animal and say, 'They are taking the country down the road to purgatory.' It's complete intolerance.
There's a terrible price to pay for stress in your life - it really takes a hit on your heart.
One forges one's style on the terrible anvil of daily deadlines.
Every actor has to make terrible films from time to time, but the trick is never to be terrible in them.
Each of us should think of the future. Every puff on a cigarette is another tick closer to a time bomb of terrible consequences. Christopher Hitchens didn't care about the consequences of smoking cigarettes. Tragically, he died of throat cancer in December 2011.
The truth. It is a beautiful and terrible thing, and must therefore be treated with great caution.
J. K. Rowling

It makes sense that we came up with our public school system during the Industrial Revolution because it's like everybody is a factory worker, eating their terrible food and going back to the room where you're silent and listening to an idiot. That's an epitomizing idea, getting called 'Nothing' for your whole high school experience.
To be immortal is commonplace; except for man, all creatures are immortal, for they are ignorant of death; what is divine, terrible, incomprehensible, is to know that one is immortal.
Jorge Luis Borges
There are terrible, terrible memories of September 11th, things that I saw, people that I lost, the devastation, the identification of bodies.

It's so fine and yet so terrible to stand in front of a blank canvas.
The state of New Jersey is really two places - terrible cities and wonderful suburbs.

We live in this era that has benefited from the Industrial Revolution, and we live with a kind of luxury and plenty that even all but the poorest of Americans live with a kind of sensuousness that was unimagined by medieval kings. But in order to get to this point, a lot of people had to suffer in really terrible ways.

John F. Kennedy
