Top Foolery Quotes

Foolery Quotes By William Shakespeare

Foolery, sir, does walk about the orb like the sun; it shines everywhere. — William Shakespeare

Foolery Quotes By Hermann Hesse

Let me say no more. Words do no justice to the hidden meaning. Everything immediately becomes slightly different when it is expressed in words, a little bit distorted, a little foolish ... It is perfectly fine with me that what for one man is precious wisdom for another sounds like foolery. — Hermann Hesse

Foolery Quotes By William Shakespeare

CELIA: For since the little wit that fools have was silenced, the little foolery that wise men have makes great a show. — William Shakespeare

Utter foolery shouldn't be delegated — Lindsay Buroker

Foolery Quotes By Aldous Huxley

In a world where education is predominantly verbal, highly educated people find it all but impossible to pay serious attention to anything but words and notions. There is always money for, there are always doctrines in, the learned foolery of research into what, for scholars, is the all-important problem: Who influenced whom to say what when? Even in this age of technology the verbal humanities are honoured. The non-verbal humanities, the arts of being directly aware of the given facts of our existence, are almost completely ignored. — Aldous Huxley

Foolery Quotes By Michael Bassey Johnson

Errors were not only meant to be committed by fools. — Michael Bassey Johnson

Foolery Quotes By Patrick O'Brian

Jack was already mother-naked when he heard the cry and saw the splash. He slipped from the gunwale into the clear water, made out the vague form at a surprising depth, dived, fished it up, swam to the ship, now a hundred yards away, roared for a line, passed the inanimate Herapath up the side, and followed himself. 'Mr Pullings,'he cried, very angry. 'Put an end to this infernal hallooing instantly. Always the same God-damned foolery, every time a man goes overboard. Damn you all for a mob of mad lunatics. Get along forward. Silence fore and aft. — Patrick O'Brian

Foolery Quotes By John Steinbeck

Blaisedell, the poet, had said to him, 'You love beer so much. I'll bet some day you'll go in and order a beer milk shake.' It was a simple piece of foolery but it had bothered Doc ever since. He wondered what a beer milk shake would taste like. The idea gagged him but he couldn't let it alone. It cropped up every time he had a glass of beer. Would it curdle the milk? Would you add sugar? It was like a shrimp ice cream. Once the thing got into your head you couldn't forget it ... If a man ordered a beer milk shake, he thought, he'd better do it in a town where he wasn't known. But then, a man with a beard, ordering a beer milk shake in a town where he wasn't known
they might call the police. — John Steinbeck

Foolery Quotes By Walter De La Mare

The time's gone by for sentiment and all that foolery. Mercy's all very well but after all it's justice that clinches the bargain. — Walter De La Mare

Foolery Quotes By Hermann Hesse

Whoever wants music instead of noise, joy instead of pleasure, soul instead of gold, creative work instead of business, passion instead of foolery, finds no home in this trivial world of ours. — Hermann Hesse

Foolery Quotes By George Orwell

It is curious, but till that moment I had never realized what it means to destroy a healthy, conscious man. When I saw the prisoner step aside to avoid the puddle, I saw the mystery, the unspeakable wrongness, of cutting a life short when it is in full tide. This man was not dying, he was alive just as we were alive. All the organs of his body were working - bowels digesting food, skin renewing itself, nails growing, tissues forming - toiling away in solemn foolery. His nails would still be growing when he stood on the drop, when he was falling through the air with a tenth of a second to live. His eyes saw the yellow gravel and the grey walls, and his brain still remembered, foresaw, reasoned - reasoned even about puddles. He and we were a party of men walking together, seeing, hearing, feeling, understanding the same world; and in two minutes, with a sudden snap, one of us would be gone - one mind less, one world less. — George Orwell

Foolery Quotes By Robert Walser

I know this perfectly well, but it was precisely this that I liked - her thinking me silly. Such a peculiar vice: to be secretly pleased to be allowed to observe that one is being slightly robbed. — Robert Walser

Foolery Quotes By Swami Vivekananda

If there be no eternal life, still the enjoyment of spiritual thoughts as ideals is keener and makes a man happier, whilst the foolery of materialism leads to competition and undue ambition and ultimate death, individual and national. — Swami Vivekananda

Foolery Quotes By John Steinbeck

If a man ordered a beer milkshake he'd better do it in a town where he wasn't known. — John Steinbeck

Foolery Quotes By Paul Theroux

Oceanic malaise. I never saw anyone reading anything more demanding than a comic book. I never heard any youth express an interest in science or art. No one even talked politics. It was all idleness, and whenever I asked someone a question, no matter how simple, no matter how well the person spoke English, there was always a long pause before I got a reply, and I found these Pacific pauses maddening. And there was giggling but no humor - no wit. It was just foolery. — Paul Theroux

Foolery Quotes By William Shakespeare

The small amount of foolery wise men have makes a great show. — William Shakespeare

Foolery Quotes By John Selden

Thou little thinkest what a little foolery governs the world. — John Selden
