Amuses Quotes

Text Versions
What I possess I would gladly retain. Change amuses the mind, yet scarcely profits  (Amuses Quotes) Change amuses the mind, but rarely profits  (Amuses Quotes) For God's sake, let us be men not monkeys minding machines or sitting with our tails curled while the machine amuses us, the radio or film or gramophone. Monkeys with a bland grin on our faces  (Amuses Quotes) It seems to me that every phenomenon, every fact, itself is the really interesting object. Whoever explains it, or connects it with other events, usually only amuses himself or makes sport of us, as, for instance, the naturalist or historian. But a single action or event is interesting, not because it is explainable, but because it is true  (Amuses Quotes) The only joy I had was writing what was. That book was. It no longer amuses me to be all the things I was when I wrote that. But it is my story as I was then  (Amuses Quotes) Do not then train boys to learning by force and harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds  (Amuses Quotes) Look, in my personal issues I’m very private. I would like to make clear that all the subjects of my family, friends, my love life, is something that is for me, and I also prefer people to invent. It amuses me a lot when I read all the things they invent  (Amuses Quotes) Light comes to us unexpectedly and obliquely. Perhaps it amuses the gods to try us. They want to see whether we are asleep  (Amuses Quotes) Belfastas uncivilised as ever--savage black mothers in houses of dark red brick, friendly manufacturers too drunk to entertain you when you arrive. It amuses me till I get tired  (Amuses Quotes) I grew up in a family of filmmakers, so I always wanted to make films about animals, especially comical films. Something about animals amuses me. And they have a great mystery. It’s the same mystique some people might feel looking at the stars or the ocean.  (Amuses Quotes) I couldn’t care less about evidence and proof and assurances. I just want God. I want God inside me. I want God to play in my bloodstream the way sunlight amuses itself on water.  (Amuses Quotes) God is a child who amuses himself, going from laughing to crying for no reason, each day reinventing the world to the chagrin of hair-splitters, pedants, and preachers, who try to teach God his job as Creator.  (Amuses Quotes) I’ve been through my fair share of highs and lows. Yes, I’ve been written off, and it amazes me, and it amuses me, also, when I’m written off by the press cause then I tell them that’s just the lull before the storm. And every time I’ve been down, I’ve been down, never out. So it just makes me work a lot harder.  (Amuses Quotes) Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds  (Amuses Quotes) I will accept anything in the theatre... provided it amuses or moves me. But if it does neither, I want to go home  (Amuses Quotes) I’ll go and see anything so long as it amuses me, or moves me. If it doesn’t do either I want to go home  (Amuses Quotes) The advantages found in history seem to be of three kinds, as it amuses the fancy, as it improves the understanding, and as it strengthens virtue  (Amuses Quotes) Everyone carries his own inch rule of taste, and amuses himself by applying it, triumphantly, wherever he travels  (Amuses Quotes) I’m a tireless worker; I don’t consider painting a work, it is not an obligation, I do it for pleasure; I haven’t found anything that amuses me more than painting  (Amuses Quotes) I don’t care what reviewers think. If somebody hates a performance of mine, I kind of get a kick out of it. It amuses me when critics take something so irrelevant as a movie so seriously  (Amuses Quotes) I don’t say things to be offensive; I say things because they’re funny to me. It amuses me  (Amuses Quotes) The degradation which characterizes the state into which you plunge him by punishing him pleases, amuses, and delights him. Deep down he enjoys having gone so far as to deserve being treated in such a way  (Amuses Quotes) Unless comedy touches me as well as amuses me, it leaves me with a sense of having wasted my evening. I go to the theatre to be moved to laughter, not to be tickled or bustled into it  (Amuses Quotes) Nothing amuses me more than the easy manner with which everybody settles the abundance of those who have a great deal less than themselves  (Amuses Quotes) We must not inquire too curiously into the absolute value of literature. Enough that it amuses and exercises us. At least it leaves us where we were. It names things, but does not add things  (Amuses Quotes) When one is in town one amuses oneself. When one is in the country one amuses other people. It is excessively boring  (Amuses Quotes) I don’t say things to be offensive; I say things because they’re funny to me. It amuses me.  (Amuses Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
