Some things are better than sex, and some are worse, but there's nothing exactly like it.
W. C. Fields
For a man to strike any women is most brutal, and I, as well as everyone else, think this far worse than any attempt to shoot, which, wicked as it is, is at least more comprehensible and more courageous.
My body is damaged from music in two ways. I have a red irritation in my stomach. It's psychosomatic, caused by all the anger and the screaming. I have scoliosis, where the curvature of your spine is bent, and the weight of my guitar has made it worse. I'm always in pain, and that adds to the anger in our music.
Sometimes it's worse to win a fight than to lose.
There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
One of the peculiar sins of the twentieth century which we've developed to a very high level is the sin of credulity. It has been said that when human beings stop believing in God they believe in nothing. The truth is much worse: they believe in anything.
Comfort rules. You want to be able to sit in a good chair comfortably for a few hours and be able to talk and enjoy a glass of wine. There's nothing worse than sitting in an uncomfortable chair.
Bad weather always looks worse through a window.
For me, I always wonder what's worse: an emotional betrayal or a physical betrayal? That's a really tough call.
All men profess honesty as long as they can. To believe all men honest would be folly. To believe none so is something worse.
John Quincy Adams
Theories of history used to be supernatural: the divine ruled time; the hand of God, a special providence, lay behind the fall of each sparrow. If the present differed from the past, it was usually worse: supernatural theories of history tend to involve decline, a fall from grace, the loss of God's favor, corruption.
I've always hated criminals and crime. Life is hard enough without someone walking into your life on purpose and making it worse.
Perhaps I'm not a good actor, but I would be even worse at doing anything else.
The Palestinians are the only nation in the world that feels with certainty that today is better than what the days ahead will hold. Tomorrow always heralds a worse situation.
I always stayed in tune with my own ambitions and attitudes and I'm still my intractable old self, for better or worse.
Waste is worse than loss. The time is coming when every person who lays claim to ability will keep the question of waste before him constantly. The scope of thrift is limitless.
Thomas A. Edison
There are historic situations in which refusal to defend the inheritance of a civilization, however imperfect, against tyranny and aggression may result in consequences even worse than war.
We play a sport. It's a game. At the end of the day, that's all it is, is a game. It doesn't make you any better or any worse than anybody else. So by winning a game, you're no better. By losing a game, you're no worse. I think by keeping that mentality, it really keeps things in perspective for me to treat everybody the same.
Optimism means better than reality; pessimism means worse than reality. I'm a realist.
There is no worse sorrow than remembering happiness in the day of sorrow.
Alfred de Musset
I thought, transgender people are much worse off than I am. That's why they're willing to risk everything to be who they are. But the older I got, the harder it got to stay in my body.
A doubtful friend is worse than a certain enemy. Let a man be one thing or the other, and we then know how to meet him.
Every single major push in education has made it worse and right now it's really bad because everything we've done is de-humanizing education. It's destroying the possibility of the teacher and the student having a warm, friendly, intellectual relationship.
Exercise is done against one's wishes and maintained only because the alternative is worse.
George A. Sheehan
The worse a situation becomes the less it takes to turn it around, the bigger the upside.
William Arthur Ward
