1. "Wittgenstein'i bu duruma uyarlayacak olursak,dünyamizin sinirlarinin,baskalarinin bizi anlama sinirlari tarafindan belirlendigini söyleyebiliriz.Elimizde olmadan baskalarinin algilarinin parametreleri içinde var oluruz- baskalarinin bizim komikligimizi anlama sinirlari içinde komiklik yapariz;onlarin zekasi bizim zekamizi,cömertligi cömertligimizi,ironisi ironimizi belirler.Karakter,hem okura hem de yazara ihtiyaç duyan bir dil gibi isler.Shakespeare, yedi yasindaki çocugun gözünde saçmaliktan ibarettir,eger sadece yedi yasindakiler tarafindan okunacak olursa yedi yasindaki birinin anlama kapasitesi ölçüsünde takdir edilir."
Author: Alain De Botton
2. "Ironing's nice and simple,' he said. 'I get all tangled up in words when I'm putting together those interminable papers...."
Author: Angela Carter
3. "I didn't see it happening, but the wheels were falling off of me. I didn't care about responsibilities like paying rent, I was just on a runaway train ride. The horribly ironic cosmic trick of drug addiction is that drugs are a lot of fun when you first start using them, but by the time the consequences manifest themselves, you're no longer in a position to say, 'Whoa, gotta stop that.' You've lost that ability, and you've created this pattern of conditioning and reinforcement. It's never something for nothing when drugs are involved."
Author: Anthony Kiedis
4. "One last thing," he said. "Stop looking for me.""I'm not looking for you." I scoffed.He touched his index finger to my forehead, my skin absurdly warming under his touch. It didn't escape me that he couldn't seem to stop finding reasons to touch me. Nor did I miss that I didn't want him to stop. "Under all the layers, a part of you remembers. It's the part that came looking for me tonight. It's that part that's going to get you killed, if you're not careful."We stood face-to-face, both of us breathing hard. The sirens were so close now."What am I supposed to tell the police?" I said."You're not going to talk to the police.""Oh, really? Funny, because I plan on telling them exactly how you rammed that tire iron into Gabe's back. Unless you answer my questions."He gave an ironic snort. "Blackmail? You've changed, Angel."
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
5. "Ironically, being a coach on 'The Voice' and spending time with those kids, Xenia and Dia especially, I learned a lot about myself. It reminded me how lucky I am that this happened for me, and it kind of lit the spark inside me again for my love of music."
Author: Blake Shelton
6. "Tinha mudado, percebi. Não apenas pelas rugas nos cantos dos olhos verdes, nem pelos vincos mais fundos ao lado da boca. Seus maxilares haviam perdido a dureza, o orgulho, e desaparecera do sorriso de lábios finos aqulea expressão de cinismo, ironia, certa crueldade. Uma mulher de pouco mais de cinquenta anos, cara lavada, um vestido amarelo claro de algodão, sandálias nos pés pequenos, de unhas sem pintura. Não era mais bela, tornara-se outra coisa, mais que isso - talvez real."
Author: Caio Fernando Abreu
7. "I understand in retrospect that this was my first introduction to a conflict that dominates all our lives: the endless, irreconcilable conflict between the values of Athens and Jerusalem. On the one hand, very approximately, is the world not of hedonism but of tolerance of the recognition that sex and love have their ironic and perverse dimensions. On the other is the stone-faced demand for continence, sacrifice, and conformity, and the devising of ever-crueler punishments for deviance, all invoked as if this very fanaticism did not give its whole game away."
Author: Christopher Hitchens
8. "It's sarcasm, Josh.""Sarcasm?""It's from the Greek, sarkasmos. To bite the lips. It means that you aren't really saying what you mean, but people will get your point. I invented it, Bartholomew named it.""Well, if the village idiot named it, I'm sure it's a good thing.""There you go, you got it.""Got what?""Sarcasm.""No, I meant it.""Sure you did.""Is that sarcasm?""Irony, I think.""What's the difference?""I haven't the slightest idea.""So you're being ironic now, right?""No, I really don't know.""Maybe you should ask the idiot.""Now you've got it.""What?""Sarcasm."
Author: Christopher Moore
9. "I think fiction lends itself to messiness rather than the ideal, and plays well with the ironies surrounding what happens versus what should happen."
Author: Colm Toibin
10. "History does seem to repeat itself hence it's mindboggling to still hear the 'avoid all negative people' speeches from, of all people, supposedly important spiritual teachers. Ironically, their congregations would probably be the ones hiding their faces from the accuracies of truth speakers like Christ. Now, Christ was the complete opposite of negative, however the danger is that truth is often misunderstood as negativity by those who are constantly taught to only seek flattery."
Author: Criss Jami
11. "Sam: "I always thought you were the most beautiful of all the Nephilim."Meg: "That's ironic because I always thought you were the ugliest of all the angels."
Author: Cynthia Hand
12. "Teenagers are never joking. when seeking to prove a point, principals and teachers should remember that teenagers are never, ever sarcasic or ironic. if they say "I wish someone would drop a bomb on this school right now," that means they have arranged for a nuclear arsenal to be emptied onto the school and should be immediately suspended and ridiculed. if they say they were merely coming up with a joking excuse to postpone a bio test, reply that all jokes are funny, and that since dropping a bomb on a school is not funny, it is therefore not a joke."
Author: David Levithan
13. "America is not only big and rich, it is mysterious; and its capacity for the humorous or ironical concealment of its interests matches that of the legendary inscrutable Chinese."
Author: David Riesman
14. "I had always had a little problem looking out for myself in love. I was afraid people would leave me. So I sort of clung and did everything possible to keep someone around. I didn't have a hard talk with myself about who I was keeping around. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. I clung to people like human life preservers. I thought i'd die if someone left me. Its ironic because now I'm the one who's leaving."
Author: Deb Caletti
15. "It's ironic that in our culture everyone's biggest complaint is about not having enough time; yet nothing terrifies us more than the thought of eternity."
Author: Dennis Miller
16. "Isn't it ironic . . . we ignore those who adore us, adore those who ignore us, hurt those who love us, and love those who hurt us.Every flaw he held and every perfection he flaunted made her love him even more."I hate this feeling. Like I'm here, but I'm not. Like someone cares. But they don't. Like I belong somewhere else, anywhere but here, and escape lies just past that snowy window, cool and crisp as the February air."
Author: Ellen Hopkins
17. "As the shabby section of the audience rose to its feet, waving its hats and food-wrappers, a rich, stale smell wafted through the auditorium. It had something of the fog on the boulevard outside, where the pavements were sticky with rain, but also something more intimate : it suggested old stew and course tobacco, the coat racks and bookshelves of a pawnshop, and damp straw mattresses impregnated with urine and patchouli. It was - as though the set designer had intended some ironical epilogue - the smell of the real Latin Quarter."
Author: Graham Robb
18. "Beautiful day out there," I said, perching on the stool and crossing my legs. "It's autumn, Sunday, great weather, and crowded everywhere you go. Relaxing indoors like this is the best thing you can do on such a nice day. It's exhausting to get into those crowds. And the air is bad. I mostly do laundry on Sundays—wash the stuff in the morning, hang it out on the roof of my dorm, take it in before the sun goes down, do a good job of ironing it. I don't mind ironing at all. There's a special satisfaction in making wrinkled things smooth. And I'm pretty good at it, too. Of course, I was lousy at it at first. I put creases in everything. After a month of practice, though, I knew what I was doing. So Sunday is my day for laundry and ironing. I couldn't do it today, of course. Too bad: wasted a perfect laundry day."
Author: Haruki Murakami
19. "It's ironic that as scientists that don't believe in god, were the ones that are closest to god."
Author: Hiromu Arakawa
20. "Go to the internet and go to the FBI website and go to their international list of top ten terrorists. You will see Bin Laden there, bring his name up and his picture. Amazingly, all the charges: the embassy of '98 and this other stuff is all listed. But, ironically nothing on 9/11. NOTHING! Now when the FBI was pressed as to why 9/11 wasn't included, their response was "We don't have enough evidence." Now, people, if you're like me that is extremely disturbing; we've fought two wars, we've changed our entire foreign policy and we've had the PATRIOT act put on us, all, supposedly, because of Osama Bin Laden!"
Author: Jesse Ventura
21. "The decline of sustained close reading of Eliot is also related, ironically, to the emergence of historical scholarship regarding sources and allusions. The major figure here is Grover Smith, who in the midfifties published an encyclopedic study of Eliot's sources. 3 The mere existence of Smith's scholarly tome changed the shape of close readings of Eliot. The poet's allusions and sources moved to the foreground of concern, and although most readers of Eliot's poetry and plays benefited from Smith's work, others found themselves frustrated by the weight of the intellectual backgrounds."
Author: Jewel Spears Brooker
22. "Jump into an open grave? What kind of idiot are you?" Butters replied. "I might as well put on a red shirt and volunteer for the away team. There's snow and ice and slippery mud down there. That's like asking for an ironically broken neck."
Author: Jim Butcher
23. "Het keuze-geobsedeerde Westen geeft de mens die anders wil eten meer ruimte dan elke andere cultuur ooit heeft gedaan, maar de ironie wil dat de volstrekt niet kieskeurige omnivoor - 'ik vind alles best, ik eet alles' - maatschappelijk bewuster kan lijken dan de mens die op een manier probeert te eten die goed is voor de samenleving. De keuze voor een bepaald soort voedsel wordt door allerlei factoren bepaald, maar de rede (en zelfs het bewustzijn) staat doorgaans niet hoog op die lijst."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
24. "Hoewel de bevolking dus niet profiteert van de bio-industrie, is het ironische ook nog eens dat ze niet alleen van ons verwachten dat we hun producten kopen, maar ook nog eens betalen voor hun fouten. Alle vervuiling, alle onkosten voor het opruimen van hun afval wentelen ze af op de gemeenschap. Hun prijzen zijn kunstmatig laag - voor alle verborgen kosten mag iedereen nog jarenlang betalen."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
25. "[Jürgen Habermas' obituary to friend and philosopher, Richard Rorty]One small autobiographical piece by Rorty bears the title 'Wild Orchids and Trotsky.' In it, Rorty describes how as a youth he ambled around the blooming hillside in north-west New Jersey, and breathed in the stunning odour of the orchids. Around the same time he discovered a fascinating book at the home of his leftist parents, defending Leon Trotsky against Stalin. This was the origin of the vision that the young Rorty took with him to college: philosophy is there to reconcile the celestial beauty of orchids with Trotsky's dream of justice on earth. Nothing is sacred to Rorty the ironist. Asked at the end of his life about the 'holy', the strict atheist answered with words reminiscent of the young Hegel: 'My sense of the holy is bound up with the hope that some day my remote descendants will live in a global civilization in which love is pretty much the only law."
Author: Jürgen Habermas
26. "Inside the room there sat a rocker, which she sat on, and which had rocked her while she sipped the beer, because in spite of herself she had become so giddy to have so quickly relieved her heart that she allowed herself to lean backwards while in the rocker, which had made it possible for the rocker to rock her, although it was not her intention to be so rocked. Also there stood an ironing board with a still hot iron on it that was burning a yellow shift, and there was, among several items that were not as noticeable to the woman, and yet were noticeable enough to at least bear mention, a fake man."I hope you don't mind me asking," said the woman who lived in the room, but then while in her chair she nodded off."
Author: Justin Dobbs
27. "It is a cruel, ironical art, photography. The dragging of captured moments into the future; moments that should have been allowed to be evaporate into the past; should exist only in memories, glimpsed through the fog of events that came after. Photographs force us to see people before their future weighed them down...."
Author: Kate Morton
28. "The awful, ironic, glorious fix for the writing doldrums is to write the next page."
Author: Kay Kenyon
29. "Step 6: Stop enjoying things ironically. Just enjoy themKnow what? I love Britney Spears and Forever 21. And I could pretend like it's this whole meta thing where I'm not actually enjoying it but rather just making this esoteric statement on lowbrow culture, but (insert handjob motion here). The truth is that I love trashy dance pop and the garments that are its clothing equivalent. You don't need to make your tastes a self-conscious statement about who you are. Just unapologetically like the things you like."
Author: Kelly Williams Brown
30. "A machine! I have become a machine! It has taken over my life. How ironic! In a world of freedom and independence, my entire life now depends on a machine!"
Author: Leigh Hershkovich
31. "A comedy that is ironic, sometimes bitter, in some cases even dramatic, tragic: This is what Italian comedy is."
Author: Mario Monicelli
32. "You can't get spoiled if you do your own ironing."
Author: Meryl Streep

Author: Michael Buckley
34. "Every day, hands are creating the world"-from "In Praise of Ironing"
Author: Pablo Neruda
35. "Ironically, for a few million people in the Far East, I did become an English teacher through my music."
Author: Pat Boone
36. "Jack laughed behind him, a mirthless sound from a man who had been on the wrong end of life's ironies too many times."
Author: R.D. Ronald
37. "Wonderful what Hollywood will do to a nobody. It will make a radiant glamour queen out of a drab little wench who ought to be ironing a truck driver's shirts, a he-man hero with shining eyes and brilliant smile reeking of sexual charm out of some overgrown kid who was meant to go to work with a lunch-box. Out of a Texas car hop with the literacy of a character in a comic strip it will make an international courtesan, married six times to six millionaires and so blasé and decadent at the end of it that her idea of a thrill is to seduce a furniture-mover in a sweaty undershirt."
Author: Raymond Chandler
38. "Ironically, we live in times that are awash in authentic sacred music."
Author: Richard Morris
39. "It's a gift to joyfully recognize and accept our own smallness and ordinariness. Then you are free with nothing to live up to, nothing to prove, and nothing to protect. Such freedom is my best description of Christian maturity, because once you know that your "I" is great and one with God, you can ironically be quite content with a small and ordinary "I." No grandstanding is necessary. Any question of your own importance or dignity has already been resolved once and for all and forever."
Author: Richard Rohr
40. "It is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way."
Author: Rollo May
41. "What an ironic tragedy that an affluent, "Christian" minority in the world continues to hoard its wealth while hundreds of millions of people hover on the edge of starvation!"
Author: Ronald J. Sider
42. "Sixty percent of all Indians live in urban areas, but nobody's writing about them. They're really an underrepresented population, and the ironic thing is very, very few of those we call Native American writers actually grew up on reservations, and yet most of their work is about reservations."
Author: Sherman Alexie
43. "I always found it so ironic, how the people from the past would do anything to see what happened everywhere else in the world that they lost so much of their own life watching this little screen."
Author: Silje Jensen
44. "He saw that it was an ironical thing for him to be running thus toward that which he had been at such pains to avoid."
Author: Stephen Crane
45. "Those books of mine really got under their skin. Ironically, they thought I was inhuman because of the way I churned through library books.How do you know how to pick them? Who tells you?' Daved asked me once.I explained that there was a line. 'If you read Dostoyevsky, he mentions Pushkin, and so you go and read Pushkin and he mentions Dante, and so you go and read Dante and--'All right!'All books are in some way about other books.'I get it!"
Author: Steve Toltz
46. "Barbarism? That's ironic coming from a woman helping to prepare us for slaughter. And what's she basing our success on? Our table manners?"
Author: Suzanne Collins
47. "I say it instead. "You told so," I admit. "You told me my image of Brody wasn't real, and you were right. I was just too blind to see it." He laughs a little. "You were to blind to see a lot of things Princess." It's reassuring when he calls me Princess-as opposed to princess or, worse, Lily. One seems too mocking, the other too intimate. His ironic nickname feels safe."
Author: Tera Lynn Childs
48. "After dinner, Edwart took me upstairs to see his room. At the top of the stairs was a giant wooden cross."Ironic, huh?" Edwart said."Why?" I asked with trepidation, imagining that, at any second, Edwart would turn into dust, which I would then sweep up and disperse over my furniture so he would always be with me."Because we're Jewish, of course--nonpracticing."
Author: The Harvard Lampoon
49. "One of the peculiar ironies of being a human self in the Cosmos: A stranger approaching you in the street will in a second's glance see you whole, size you up, place you in a way in which you cannot and never will, even though you have spent a lifetime with yourself, live in the Century of the Self, and therefore ought to know yourself best of all."
Author: Walker Percy
50. "Stephen King writes a lot of things that are really charming and quirky, and that are more ironic than horror."
Author: William H. Macy
