Favorite Someone Being Mean Quotes

1. "The media insists on taking what someone didn't mean to say as being far closer to the truth than what they did."
Author: Alain De Botton
2. "I pity you Juliet. You don't know what love is. You think it's Valentine's Day, and weekends in Italy. You think it's drinking champagne in some expensive restaurant and being bought stupid bloody underwear. But that's just the trimmings. The decoration. They're just gestures. Without trust, and respect, and kindness, they don't mean shit. I thought love was about caring about someone day in and day out, about being there when it's rucking amazing and still wanting to be there when it feels like crap, I thought it was about forever."
Author: Alexandra Potter
3. "No one expects Will Herondale to live past nineteen, and no one will be sorry to see him go, either -" That was too much for Tessa. Without thinking about it she burst out indignantly, "What a thing to say!" Gabriel, interrupted midrant, looked as shocked as if one of the tapestries had suddenly started talking. "Pardon me?" "You heard me. Telling someone you wouldn't be sorry if they died! It's inexcusable!" She took hold of Will by the sleeve. "Come along, Will. This - this person - obviously isn't worth wasting your time on." Will looked hugely entertained. "So true." ... Tessa frowned at Gabriel. "I think you owe Will an apology." "I," said Gabriel, "would rather have my entrails yanked out and tied in a knot in front of my own eyes than apologize to such a worm." "Goodness," said Jem mildly. "You can't mean that. Not the Will being a worm part, of course. The bit about the entrails. That sounds dreadful."
Author: Cassandra Clare
4. "Please know that there are much better things in life than being lonely or liked or bitter or mean or self conscious. We are all full of shit. Go love someone just because, I know your heart may be badly bruised, or even the victim of numerous knifings but it will always heal even if you don't want it to, it keeps going. There are the most fantastic, beautiful things and people out there, I promise. It's up to you to find them."
Author: Chuck Palahniuk
5. "I mean, being with someone for over a year can mean that you love them… but it can also mean you're trapped."
Author: David Levithan
6. "Why is someone telling you they loved you so awful?' I ask.‘It's not just that he told me he loved me, it's more about he expected me to say it back. I don't like feeling cornered into saying stuff I don't feel and doing stuff I don't want to do. And anyway, love at our age is ridiculous,' Renee says, tapping her toe in a puddle of water.Putting it like that makes more sense. People live whole lives together pretending to be in love. I guess Mum and Dad did that for most of their relationship. Then they realised they couldn't pretend any more but they were stuck with each other, and look where that got them. I've never really thought about love being such a big deal before. I just presumed that if someone was kind enough to say it to me, I would be kind enough to say it back, but maybe you shouldn't just say ‘I love you.' You have to mean it."
Author: Dawn O'Porter
7. "Just because I've been gone from this country for most of my life doesn't mean I understand it any less. When I was fifteen I left Jamaica. I knew that I was a lesbian then and, because of what I looked like, I was an out lesbian. It was hard for me. It was hard for the thirteen years I was in England, for various reasons, and it's going to be difficult here as well. I don't anticipate anything being easy. But I'd rather suffer the chance of someone accosting me for being a dyke than suffer the emotional violence I'd do to myself if I wasn't honest about who I am."
Author: Fiona Zedde
8. "I know it's a really hard concept to process, but the fact that Govt accuses someone of being a Terrorist doesn't mean they are."
Author: Glenn Greenwald
9. "When someone has been mean to you, why would you want to be good to them?' 'You wouldn't want to. That's what makes it hard. You do it anyway. Being good is hard. Much harder than being bad."
Author: Jeanne DuPrau
10. "We have a sickness in our society. If you say that somebody is a 'success', isn't it that usually what you mean is that they've made a lot of money, or have a lot of money?... Whrereas I would define a successful human being - - if you think twice about it, and question that assumption, you know, wouldn't that actually be somebody who brings out the best in other people? Someone who gives - - adds beauty to the lives of others, in some way?" John Robbins - author of 'The Good Life"
Author: John Robbins
11. "Lee, I'm not good enough for him.""Now, what do you mean by that?""I'm not being funny. He doesn't think about me. He's made someone up, and it's like he put my skin on her. I'm not like that—not like the made-up one.""What's she like?""Pure!" said Abra. "Just absolutely pure. Nothing but pure—never a bad thing. I'm not like that.""Nobody is," said Lee."He doesn't know me. He doesn't even want to know me. He wants that—white—ghost."
Author: John Steinbeck
12. "She set her hands neatly in her lap. "But you just said he liked you." "No, I said he enjoys my company. That is, he enjoys hating me. Or pretending to hate me. I don't know which. But I'm finding it difficult to completely dislike someone who gets pleasure from having me around. ..."So he likes being mean to you," she said. "And you like that he likes being mean to you." "And I like being mean to him, too, don't forget." "Of course not. Pleasure from meanness. There's a name for it: sadomasochism."
Author: Kristin Walker
13. "I admire independence. The world would be a stronger place if we were all capable of handling life on our own. But being capable of it doesn't mean being unable to share and depend on someone else. It shouldn't mean being unwilling to. That's the romance."
Author: Nora Roberts
14. "To whom could I put this question (with any hope of an answer)? Does being able to live without someone you loved mean you loved her less than you thought...?"
Author: Roland Barthes
15. "Because you can never go from going out to being friends, just like that. It's a lie. It's just something that people say they'll do to take the permanence out of a breakup. And someone always takes it to mean more than it does, and then is hurt even more when, inevitably, said ‘friendly' relationship is still a major step down from the previous relationship, and it's like breaking up all over again. But messier."
