Favorite Fooling Me Quotes

1. "Prison left me with some strange little tics.' She has taken all the door off their hinges in all the apartments she has lived in since. It's not that she has anxiety attacks about small spaces, she says, it's just that she starts to sweat and go cold. 'This apartment is perfect for me,' she says, looking around the open space.'How about elevators?' I ask, recalling the schlepp up the stairs. 'Exactly,' she replies, 'I don't like them much either.'One day, years later, her husband Charlie was fooling around at home, playing the guitar. Miriam said something provocative and he stood up suddenly, lifting his arm to take off the guitar strap. He was probably just going to say 'That's outrageous', or tickle her or tackle her. But she was gone. She was already down in the courtyard of the building. She does not remember getting down the stairs-it was an automatic flight reaction."

2. "Why we should believe in wolf children seems somehow easier to understand than the ways we distinguish between what is human and what is animal behavior. In making such distinctions we run the risk of fooling ourselves completely. We assume that the animal is entirely comprehensible and, as Henry Beston has said, has taken form on a plane beneath the one we occupy. It seems to me that this is a sure way to miss the animal and to see, instead, only another reflection of our own ideas."
Author: Barry Lopez
3. "I grew up with all these hippies. Ten of them and one of me. None of them wanted to work and spent all their time talking and dreaming and fooling around. 90% of that hippie stuff is just bullshit but the ideals of that generation were very beautiful and powerful and rebellious. I had to dress and feed myself from the time I was six, which meant I became a very organised person. But there came a point when I was about seven or eight, when I saw the absurdity of living in a commune and I said to them, "Why don't you just DO SOMETHING!?"
Author: Björk
4. "We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased."
Author: C.S. Lewis

But then it occurred to her. "Jenny, next time you visit?" "What? What is it?" Jennifer asked. Christine half stuttered. "You have never been to my penthouse.""Really?" Jennifer thought back when something came to mind. "Well, what was that great big building we went to the last time we visited? You know, we went all the way to the top.""That was the Empire State building.""No fooling? Huh, what do you know? Well you should move in there, it was beautiful as I recall." "You can't move into the Empire State building." "Oh, that's right," Jennifer soon realized, "those mean terrorists tore it down. My, that was just awful."
Author: Carroll Bryant

Author: Christopher Hitchens

20. "He'd kept his figure despite being past his first youth. Pretty good for nearly forty.Who was she fooling? She knew quite well that he was thirty-five and a half, exactly five years older than she. Their birthdays were two days apart. It was absurd the way trivial facts lingered in the memory, facts as unimportant as what she had for dinner on Tuesday. Except that she couldn't remember last week's menu and she was annoyingly aware of Max Quinton's preference for lamb over beef, for apple tart over syllabub. He preferred Shakespeare to the modern poets, the country to the town."
Author: Miranda Neville
21. "Criticizing people, winding them up, making idiots of them or fooling them doesn't make people with autism laugh.

When we don't need to think about other people or anything else, that's when we wear our aural expressions."

And I meant it to sting, by Jove!"It is not a parlourmaid's place to dust the drawing-room," she sniffed haughtily."No," I said bitterly. "It seems to be a parlourmaid's place to lurk about and hang about and - er - waste her time fooling about in the garden with policemen who ought to be busy about their duties elsewhere.""It's a parlourmaid's place to open the front door to visitors. Them that don't come in through windows."I perceived that I was getting the loser's end of the thing."

That's the time to get them. ("The Disinheritors")"
