Downfall Quotations

But marriage goes in waves. You've got to be patient. People bail and give up on their marriages way too early. They just don't put the work and the effort into it. You've got to suck up your ego a lot of times, because that can be a big downfall.
Anna Benson

A man's pride can be his downfall, and he needs to learn when to turn to others for support and guidance.

Joko Beck

I like food too much to go on some crazy diet. French fries are my favorite downfall.

Why is the public so interested in movies about the wealthy? My answer is that Shakespeare wrote about kings. That's where the action is. And it's the classic, cathartic thing. You get to indulge in a lifestyle you're not part of, a tragic error leads to a downfall, and you get to say, 'Thank God I'm not him.'
Nicholas Jarecki
