Desperate Quotes


Time was passing like a hand waving from a train I wanted to be on.
I hope you never have to think about anything as much as I think about you.

Don't dare a person who has nothing else left to lose.

I suppose I have found it easier to identify with the characters who verge upon hysteria, who were frightened of life, who were desperate to reach out to another person. But these seemingly fragile people are the strong people really.

This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don't get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can't do anything, don't get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it's ready to come undone. You have to realize it's going to be a
long process and that you'll work on things slowly, one at a time.

You're reaching out
And no one hears you cry
You're freaking out again
'Cause all your fears
Remind you another dream has come undone
You feel so small and lost like you're the only one
You wanna scream 'cause you're
Desperate
You want somebody, just anybody
To lay their hands on your soul tonight
You want a reason to keep believin'
That someday you're gonna see the light
You're in the dark
There's no one left to call
And sleep's your only friend
Well even sleep
Can't hide you from all those tears
And all the pain and all the days
You wasted pushin' them away
It's your life, it's time you face it

Hope is the power of being cheerful in circumstances that we know to be desperate.

A deceitful man will go as far as to trample all over a woman’s reputation and spirit, in order to prove to his ex-love that he was faithful. The irony, is he is still in love with his ex and the new woman in his life doesn’t even realize it.

The desperate usually succeed because they have nothing to lose.

I know. I was hoping," I say.
"Exactly. Because you're desperate," says Haymitch.
I don't argue because, of course, he's right.

Catching Fire

Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire

It’s not okay, I tell her. This gets her attention; it’s not what she was expecting. You don’t have to be okay. What do you want from me? Her voice is ragged, desperate. I want you to let yourself be broken. Let yourself hurt. She shakes her head again. I can’t. If I let it out, it’ll never stop. Yes, it will.

It wasn't the sort of kiss I'd had with him before, hungry, wanting, desperate. It wasn't the sort of kiss I'd had with anyone before. This kiss was so soft that it was like a memory of a kiss, so careful on my lips that it was like someone running his fingers along them.

The small wad of burning paper drew down to a wisp of flame and then died out leaving a faint pattern for just a moment in the incandescence like the shape of a flower, a molten rose. Then all was dark again.

The Road

Cormac McCarthy

You seemed so desperate, like you might drown if someone didn't save you.

I understand I have no place here. I understand I am lost in the god's eye. I understand I must find my purpose or I will go mad in this green, godless place.

She shrieks above the din. "If you wish a battle, I shall give it. I am the last of my kind. I shall not lie down without a fight.

The lonesome and desperate kids out there, that pain will translate to magic perhaps.

How small and neat and comically serious the other men looked, with their grey-flecked crew cuts and their button-down collars and their brisk little hurrying feet! There were endless desperate swarms of them, hurrying through the station and the streets, and an hour from now they would all be still. The waiting mid-town office buildings would swallow them up and contain them, so that to stand in one tower looking out across the canyon to another would be to inspect a great silent insectarium displaying hundreds of tiny pink men in white shirts, forever shifting papers and frowning into telephones, acting out their passionate little dumb show under the supreme indifference of the rolling spring clouds.

Meanwhile I'll probably see him again. That's how sick I am.

He loves her like a gambler loves a fast racehorse or a desperate man loves whiskey. That kind of love eats a man up.

لا شك أن الحب قادر على تغيير كل شئ فى حياة الانسان خلال فترة زمنية قصيرة . لكن
, وهذا هو الوجه الاخر للميدالية , هناك شعور أخر يمكن ان يقوم الكائن البشرى الى
معارج مختلفة تماما عن تلك التى كان يسعى اليها , وهى الياس .

Eleven Minutes

Paulo Coelho

Eleven Minutes

My mouth opened.
It happened.
Yes, with my head thrown into the sky, I started howling.
Arms stretched out next to me, I howled, and everything came out of me. Visions pored up my throat and past voices surrounded me. The sky listened. The city didn't. I didn't care. All I cared about was that I was howling so that I could hear my voice and so I would remember that the boy had intensity and something to offer. I howled, oh, so loud and desperate, telling a world that I was here and I wouldn't lie down.

The value in my room is neither my Television nor my bank note. The value in my room is myself! Why? Because even if I lose everything I have, but still get me, I am coming back with full passion and desperation to climb the unclimbed hills again and again!

I know what that feels like. I know what it’s like to care about someone so much they make you desperate.

Down to You

M. Leighton

Down to You

Shakespeare's Iago could be played as a soul in hell, driven, dark and desperate, willing to do anything, willing to use anyone, in order to escape from that hell.

Obsession and desperation for your goal, gets you the goal.

Go to where ever dreamland you decide on. But go with passion hand-in-hand. You will never be tired on the way!

Ah, sarcasm. The final refuge of the desperate.

The desperate piercing scream of horror echoed far above the sharpened tops of the trees wrapped in thin obsidian-transparent mist, and I startled jerkily, tripping again, and almost collapsed onto the cold moist ground.

Please tell me you have a way out of this.

When a desperate, hungry spirit appears and makes the guinea pigs squeal it is because he knows where to put the live wire of sex, because he knows that beneath the hard carapace of indifference there is concealed the ugly gash, the wound that never heals.

I do understand why a desperate engineer still use a hammer
to solve a hard problem. I think, that made him more humane.

On the death of Hale's esteemed friend and fellow scientist,
Luther Burbank
.
Burbank
was much beloved by the population unil in an interview he revealed that he was an atheist. After this, the public turned on him and sent him thousands of letters with death threats. This upset the kind-hearted
Burbank
, who tried to amiably reply to each letter, so much that it ultimately led to his death
}
. . .
he
was misled into believing that logic, kindliness, and reason could convince and help the bigoted
.
He fell sick. The sickness was fated to be his last.
What killed
Luther Burbank
, at just that time and in just that abrupt and tragic fashion, was his baffled, yearning, desperate effort to make people understand. His desire to help them, to clarify their minds, and to induce them to substitute fact for hysteria drove him beyond his strength
. He grew suddenly old attempting to make reasonable a people which had been unreasonable through twenty stiff-necked generations. . .
He died, not a martyr to truth, but a victim of the fatuity of blasting dogged falsehood.

I can't imagine what kind of poverty would motivate a person to forget themselves and everyone they loved so their families could get a monthly stipend. I may have lived on Abnegation bread and vegetables for most of my life, with nothing to spare, but I was never that desperate. Their situation must have been much worse than anything I saw in the city. - Tris

(...) I do want to leave, in the desperate way that an animal wants to escape a trap. Wild and rabid. Ready to gnaw through bone.
