Hell Quotations

I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
Marilyn Monroe

If you're going through hell, keep going.
Winston Churchill

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

I'm not playing a role. I'm being myself, whatever the hell that is.
Bea Arthur

William Tecumseh Sherman
