I've always liked getting away with just a little bit of what you're not supposed to. Like my first book, Billy's Booger, got me in trouble with the principal's office.
Most of us know perfectly well what we ought to do; our trouble is that we do not want to do it.
The trouble with organizing a thing is that pretty soon folks get to paying more attention to the organization than to what they're organized for.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
I have trouble with modern art. But in general, all art forms fascinate me - art is the way human beings express what we can't say in words.
Trolling taps into people's desire to poke fun, make trouble and cause annoyance.

Mary J. Blige

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
