Something's Wrong Quotes

Family," she announced. "Theyre the people in your life you dont get to pick. The ones that are given to you,as opposed to those you get to choose." "Youre bound to them by blood," she continued, her voice flat. "Which, you know, gives you that much more in common. Diseases, genetics, hair, and eye color. Its like theyre part of your blueprint. If somethings wrong with you, you can usually trace it back to them." I nodded and kept writing. "But," she said, "even though youre stuck with them, at the same time, theyre also stuck with you. So thats why they always get the front rows at christenings and funerals. Because theyre the ones that are there, you know, from the beginning to the end. Like it or not.

Is writing the gift of curling up, of curling up with reality? One would so love to curl up, of course, but what happens to me then? What happens to those, who don't really know reality at all? It's so very dishevelled. No comb, that could smooth it down. The writers run through it and despairingly gather together their hair into a style, which promptly haunts them at night. Something's wrong with the way one looks. The beautifully piled up hair can be chased out of its home of dreams again, but can anyway no longer be tamed. Or hangs limp once more, a veil before a face, no sooner than it could finally be subdued. Or stands involuntarily on end in horror at what is constantly happening. It simply won't be tidied up. It doesn't want to.

"Bullshit. You're breaking your own rules by even being here. This is better -this is real- but it's also different and I want to know why.

When heuristics don't yield the results we expect, you'd think we would eventually realize that something's wrong. Even if we don't locate the biases, we should be able to see the discrepancy between what we wanted and what we got, right? Well, not necessarily. As it turns out, we have biases that support our biases! If we're partial to one option-perhaps because it's more memorable, or framed to minimize loss, or seemingly consistent with a promising pattern-we tend to search for information that will justify choosing that option. On the one hand, it's sensible to make choices that we can defend with data and a list of reasons. On the other hand, if we're not careful, we're likely to conduct an imbalanced analysis, falling prey to a cluster of errors collectively known as confirmation biases.

— Sheena Iyengar

Whenever there are great virtues, it's a sure sign something's wrong.

— Bertolt Brecht

I think you feel more deeply than most people ever do; you just don't know how to show it. You always feel-out of step. You're not like the people around you, and they know it as well as you do. And you think it's because something's wrong with you, so you retreat deeper into the background. That just means people don't get to know the real you.
You're lonely. You've been lonely so long I think you've forgotten there's any other way to be.

— Claudia Gray

There are women who literally squeeze a baby out of their bodies or get cut open in major surgery, have a human being, the next generation of the human race pulled from their bodies, and within a couple of weeks have to go back to work, because if they don't, they can't pay their bills. Something's wrong with that.

— Megyn Kelly

— Lewis Black

The public is upset. If they haven't lost their job, they know somebody that has. If they haven't lost their house, they know somebody that has. What do you do? When something's wrong, it's government's job to fix it, it must be government that's responsible for causing it.

— Michael Bloomberg

If it is easy, something's wrong.

I think of a plot, I think of an idea, and then I wonder, How can I get that onto the stage? ... Whatever devices you use should always be there to serve the theme. If the theme has been overtaken by the device, then something's wrong.

— Alan Ayckbourn

Always communicate no matter how hard it is to tell someone something's wrong. It's worse not to talk about it. I learn this every few years. The truth hurts for 3 days. Lack of truth hurts your whole life.
