Empty threats are often worse than saying nothing at all. It's like leading from behind. Eventually, no one thinks you're leading at all. And after a while, no one is even listening.
Kathleen Troia McFarland
Love's like the measles - all the worse when it comes late in life.
Douglas William Jerrold
The Moon stabilizes Earth's obliquity. Well, almost. The tilt actually varies between 22 and 24.5 degrees - and the variation is enough to induce such environmental inconveniences as the occasional ice age. Without the Moon, it might be much worse.
Companions, in misery and worse, that is what we all are, and to try to change this substantially avails us nothing.
There's nothing worse than sleeping in makeup. You wake up looking like a painting that's been left out in a rainstorm.
My nerves before a gig got worse; I had terrible bad nerves all the time. Once we started... I was fine.
Sometimes it's worse to win a fight than to lose.
A neighborhood is a residential area that is changing for the worse.
In most countries, it is possible to visit zoos and see bored animals pacing back and forth in cages, with nothing to do but wait for the next meal. Circuses are even worse places for animals. Their living conditions are deplorable, especially in travelling circuses where cages have to be small so that they can go on the road.
There's nothing worse than finding yourself in a situation, a very demanding piece of work, and knowing that you're not a true ally to the person who's in charge of all that.
The knee just isn't 100 percent. It's hard to be out there when you know that you can't play at your best and could potentially make it worse.
What is required as we travel towards full unemployment is not new legislation but a gradual change of mental attitude, a shift in values. As our taste for idling grows, we will refuse to work for old-fashioned bosses who demand a five-day, 40-hour, nine-to-five type week, or worse.
I dread handshakes. I've got some problems with my hands, and everywhere I go, people want to impress me with their grip. To make it worse, now women are coming up with that firm shake. So I'll say, 'Gimme five!' If a boy wants a handshake, I'll just give him a hug.
My life has been an open book, for better or for worse.
Growing up, my mom was very strict about how I dressed and how I behaved, and I said to myself that I wasn't going to be like that. But now I know I'm going to be exactly like my mom. I'm going to be worse!
Theater will always be a huge part of my life. The high I get from doing theater is not, quite honestly, matched by many things. I like the fact that when you step out on the stage, for that given night, for better or for worse, you are the master of the boards. I love it to death.
Sensuality without love is a sin; love without sensuality is worse than a sin.
As I was coming up on the stage, there was one source that could make or break you, the New York Times. Inevitably there would be one actor singled out for a better review, or worse, than somebody else. The effect of that was cancerous, divisive.

In real life, I'm not super-posh but if that's the stereotype, I really don't care. It could be worse.
