The Hell's Angels try not to do anything halfway, and anyone who deals in extremes is bound to cause trouble, whether he means to or not. This, along with a belief in total retaliation for any offense or insult, is what makes the Hell's Angels unmanageable for the police and morbidly fascinating to the general public.
Hunter S. Thompson
I was a savage for so many years of my life. There was some seed of determination in me that I was not conscious of. I was mostly consciously getting into trouble and drunk.
Education doesn't change life much. It just lifts trouble to a higher plane of regard.
God created the world; the laws of nature were created by God. True science tries to find out what God put in the world. The trouble is where scientists speculate about theology and they don't know what they're talking about because they weren't there. They can't speculate about the origins of life because they weren't there.
This is the mark of a really admirable man: steadfastness in the face of trouble.
Ludwig van Beethoven
When you have one million dollars, you're a lucky person. When you have 10 million dollars, you've got trouble, a lot of headaches. When you have more than one billion dollars, or a hundred million dollars, that's a responsibility you have - it's the trust of people on you, because people believe you can spend money better than the others.
I could never accept findings based almost exclusively on mathematics. It ain't ignorance that causes all the trouble in this world. It's the things people know that ain't so.
To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.
It is not materialism that is the chief curse of the world, as pastors teach, but idealism. Men get into trouble by taking their visions and hallucinations too seriously.
H. L. Mencken
Keep your head on the ball. You've got to hit it first, then look where it goes. People get in trouble when they look for where the ball's going, and they haven't even hit it yet.
I have learned to live each day as it comes, and not to borrow trouble by dreading tomorrow. It is the dark menace of the future that makes cowards of us.
Borrow trouble for yourself, if that's your nature, but don't lend it to your neighbours.
If there was less sympathy in the world, there would be less trouble in the world.
The trouble with learning from experience is that you never graduate.
As so often happens with Washington scandals, it isn't the original scandal that gets people in the most trouble - it's the attempted cover-up.
The cool kindliness of sheets, that soon smooth away trouble; and the rough male kiss of blankets.
I don't do anything in order to cause trouble. It just so happens that what I do naturally causes trouble. I'm proud to be a troublemaker.
I'm busy and that's the way I like it - when I have too much downtime I get into trouble.
Diplomacy in a sense is the opposite of writing. You have to disperse yourself so much: the lady who comes in crying because she's had a fight with the secretary; exports and imports; students in trouble; thumbtacks for the embassy.
I'm married to the street; I ain't gonna switch over. I ain't gonna go religion on nobody. I believe in God - God is for the thugs too - but the streets are in the most trouble. So I'mma keep it focused on the streets and the struggle. That's what I'm mainly about.
People are afraid because I'm candid. They're always worried I'm going to get into trouble.
Men invent means and methods of coming at God's love, they learn rules and set up devices to remind them of that love, and it seems like a world of trouble to bring oneself into the consciousness of God's presence. Yet it might be so simple. Is it not quicker and easier just to do our common business wholly for the love of him?
There are some people who have trouble recognizing a mess.
It is better for you to be free of fear lying upon a pallet, than to have a golden couch and a rich table and be full of trouble.
The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
