Once we are fed, heated, housed and healthy, our extra consumption inevitably has an element of luxury about it. And once luxury enters the scene, the practicalities are in trouble, as women who wear expensive stiletto heels can testify.
I decided to always sing in the back with the chorus and never went up front because I had trouble performing.
Weirdly enough, if I'm having trouble with a guitar part - not the playing of it but the writing - I'll mess around with echo and other effects, just turn everything up and make it as crazy as can be, and it winds up taking me somewhere. I've found so many guitar parts from echo. It's limitless.
If you're going to build something, don't build on land someone else already owns. You want your own land, your own domain, your own sovereignty. Trouble is, so much of the choice land - the land where all the people are - is already owned by someone else: By Google, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yahoo, and Apple (in apps, anyway).
I grew up in a house that had a whole lot of trouble. As much trouble as you could imagine.
I had lots of trouble in school as a child, and I lost confidence. Teachers thought I was stupid. I learned to read very late, when I was 11. Dyslexia wasn't recognized then, and the assumption was you were incapable of thinking.
We are Bayern Munich and English teams always have trouble as soon as they leave the island.
People will be able to raise their concerns: what are local officers doing about the drug dealing in the local park? What's happening about the pub where all the trouble is? And the police will have to respond.
Any gifted child can potentially get in real trouble because of the way they are handled.
At town meetings, you can see the shy folks, the ones who have trouble sounding off in public, leaning against the back wall or bending over their knitting. On talk radio, those people are invisible, but they're there. It's a mistake to think that the blowhards who call in speak for the nation.
I can look into someone's eyes and feel like I know her better, versus a phone call, where you can't get that same type of emotion. That's why text messaging gets you in trouble: You can't bond, and emoticons explain only so much.
My wife is amazing. She had to know she was getting into a heap of trouble when we met.
Each work seems to give me the most trouble at the time I'm working on it.
I'm emotionally in tune with my feelings and what people mean to me, and I have no trouble saying it and relating to it.
I'd rather experiment than follow the same formula. I'm a curious person. It's gotten me into trouble, but I say, 'Why not? Let's try it.'
I love women. I mean, I'm married, but I used to get in all kinds of trouble.
It's been a pattern in my life - when I get in trouble, I try to get out of it, since I was little.
I support anything that broadens the message of gender equality and tempers the stigma of the feminist label. We run into trouble, though, when we celebrate celebrity feminism while avoiding the actual work of feminism.
So many people have so much trouble having kids.
There are plenty of good five cent cigars in the country. The trouble is they cost a quarter.
Franklin Pierce Adams
The trouble with Reason is that it becomes meaningless at the exact point where it refuses to act.
Vietnamese food has probably been saved from the mass market because most people never master the sauces and condiments that must be added to the food, at the table, for its glories to become apparent. It's too much trouble, and a lot of people don't like asking for help, especially if the interaction involves some linguistic awkwardness.
I have been a believer in the magic of language since, at a very early age, I discovered that some words got me into trouble and others got me out.
If the scholar feels that he must know everything about any topic, he is in trouble - and will not publish with a clear conscience.
Kenneth L. Pike
I grew up in a very small, close-knit, Southern Baptist family, where everything was off-limits. So I couldn't wait to get to college and have some fun. And I did for the first two years. And I regret a lot of it, because my grades were in terrible shape. I never got in serious trouble, except for my grades.
The trouble is that as women we try to take care of everybody else before we take care of ourselves.

It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.
Henry Ward Beecher
