Making children cry for a photographer can be considered mean. But I would say that making children laugh and show off their jeans for an apparel ad is just as exploitative and less natural. Toddlers’ natural state, like, 30 percent of the time, is crying, and it doesn’t indicate pain or suffering.

I remember I was playing basketball, and an entire arena was, like, chanting ‘Big Foot.’ It was a high school game, but… you’re constantly being reminded you’re bigger; you don’t look like everybody. There were days where I would be upset, and, like, I’d cry about it.
Nia Jax
This white woman came up to me, and I’m thinking, WOW. When I was a kid, she would have been robbed and raped and left for dead. This is a real strange scenario, and I just wanted to cry. I’m like, “Who am I? Where’s my heritage?

George Berkeley
Approached literally, there’s but a hair’s difference between You’d better not pout, you’d better not cry, and Don’t scream.
Dana Gould
A picture can be funny and also weep inducing. One cries for many reasons. The state of weeping, for me, is induced by recognition of a rarified level of integration – thinking about what must it have taken to reach that integration.
Joe Bradley
I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions. And the fact that a lot of people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I can communicate these basic human emotions.
Mark Rothko
Like a wind crying endlessly through the universe, Time carries away the names and the deeds of conquerors and commoners alike. And all that we were, all that remains, is in the memories of those who cared we came this way for a brief moment.
Harlan Ellison
Sam dropped me off. When she was too far away to see me, I started to cry again. Because she was my friend again. And that was enough for me.
Stephen Chbosky
One time I was doing a speech to a group of kids, and just before I get there, I see this little kid crying. I found out they just lost a game, and he was the losing pitcher. I went over there, put my arm around him, and said, ‘What are you crying for? When major league players lose, they don’t cry.’
Tommy Lasorda
They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself.
Bob Marley
It does not become America that within her borders, where every man is free to follow the dictates of his conscience, men should raise the cry of church against church. To do that is to strike at the very spirit and heart of America.
Woodrow Wilson
We saw that he plays with his heart too. He obviously loves the game so much and was distraught to lose in the final. Seeing him cry nearly got me going too.
Cristiano Ronaldo
The only ones that stand out to me are people like Jonathan Richman or Robyn Hitchcock, who can make you totally cry while their music is so funny and they’re hilarious. They know they’re great but they also don’t think they’re better than you and they really invite you into their show.
Neko Case
And if I die before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take
But please don’t cry
Just know that I have made these songs for you.
Kid Cudi
From the conservatives, the – the battle cry for the last couple of years, especially from people like Ted Cruz, was repeal ObamaCare, every single word of ObamaCare. That is not the message from Donald Trump.
George Stephanopoulos
The book that made me cry hardest was ‘Stoner,’ by John Williams.
Stephen McCauley

Sinead O’Connor
‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ is one of my favorite movies, and I laugh all the time, and I cry during the one funeral. But I’ll say that ‘Monsters, Inc.’ is a movie that really gets me super-emotional. Especially the ending.
Kumail Nanjiani
When I look at Lake Michigan each July, I imagine the men of the Indianapolis visible on the horizon; dark heads, struggling arms, a cry and whirl of a world being remade. I feel an overwhelming sense of sadness, accompanied by a desire to yell out that they will be rescued.
Doug Stanton
Tis a strange thing, that the only friends I have I found in the same way, lying flat in the meadows, crying as if their hearts would break.
Elizabeth George Speare

Charles Darwin
There are people who laugh to show their fine teeth; and there are those who cry to show their good hearts.
Joseph Roux
One of my favorite places in San-Francisco is Aunt Charlies drag show. You pay $3 and see shows that literally give you goose bumps and bring you to tears. As a performer, you know they’re giving 100% and you can’t help but cry.
Christopher Owens
Anyone who has problems, or worries, anyone who laughs and cries, anyone who feels can write. It’s only talking on paper… talking about the things that matter to us.

Gilbert K. Chesterton
When I was 8 years old, I became depressed. I kept asking why I was born this way [without arms and legs]. I also worried about my future. At the age of 10, I tried to commit suicide because I felt like giving up. But when I imagined my loving parents crying at my grave, I decided to stay.
Nick Vujicic

Jennifer Lopez
The cry of my body for completeness. That is a cry to you.

Florence Pugh
If you’re out there and things are going badly, are you going to cry or break down?
John McEnroe
I think it was wonderful when Princess Di died so that everyone could cry in unison. I thought that the crying together was the most powerful gift that she gave in her death.

Not the Christian religion only, but nature herself, cries out against the state of slavery.

The claws of Truth were painful. The lies tore away like scabs, and John bled there for hours, stifling his cries of pain in the sleeve of his overcoat – the overcoat he’d received from his father.
Frank Peretti
The first record I got, I think I stole. I was with my mother; she turned her back, and I slipped it in my coat. And I think it was ‘Cry Baby’ by The Bonnie Sisters. That or ‘Lucille’ by Little Richard.
John Waters
Bert’s wallet is like an onion. Any time he opens it, he starts crying.
Brendan Morrison
I am nothing if not a loyalist. After 46 years in the Labour party, I’ve grown weary of the cry: ‘If only we had a new, shining, revamped leader, all would be well.’
David Blunkett
Parents sometimes think of newborns as helpless creatures, but in fact parents’ behavior is much more under the infant’s control than the reverse. Does he come running when you cry?
Sandra Scarr
Oh for a book and a shady nook, Either indoors or out, with the green leaves whispering overhead, or the street cries all about. Where I may read at all my ease both of the new and old, For a jolly good book whereon to look is better to me than gold
John Wilson
Sometimes crying or laughing are the only options left, and laughing feels better right now.
Veronica Roth
A band that cries together stays together.
Karen Fairchild
Sometimes I would like to cry. I close my eyes. Why weren’t we designed so that we can close our ears as well? (Perhaps because we would never open them.) Is there some way that I could accelerate my evolution and develop earlids?
Kate Atkinson
I Love children, especially when they cry for then someone takes them away.
Nancy Mitford
Roosters: The cry of the male chicken is the most barbaric yawp in all of nature.
Edward Abbey
I gotta do some sad scenes. Why, I never tried to make anybody cry in my life! And I go `round all the time dolled up in kippie clothes-wear everything but a corset…can`t stub my toe in this picture nor anything! Just imagine having to play-act all the time without ever getting hit with anything!

We need to put ourselves in the shoes of our customers. That is my new battle cry. Live and breathe Starbucks the way our customers do.

I would walk into my office, and I would close the door, and I would say, ‘I won’t cry, I won’t cry, I won’t cry’… At least, I wasn’t going to let them see me cry.
Dawn Steel
I want to be very authentic when I perform, because I feel like I owe that to people listening. You can’t go through the motions on music like this. You are making people feel a certain way, that you are not feeling yourself. It’s like saying “I want you guys to cry, but I don’t really care,” which isn’t right.
William Fitzsimmons
Cry my eyes out for days upon days Such a heaven burden placed upon me
Nicki Minaj
the quote that i liked is”The moment of the baby boy is born is taught to be tough” i really liked this quote from the book that am reading because i think its the same in UAE,we teach our baby boy to be strong and to get up without crying and to depend on him self.
Steve Harvey
I don’t think anybody should go through life without a team of psychologists. I have been through times when I’m literally squatting in the living room, having one of those open-throated cries, where you’re crying all the way to your butthole. I always believed I would come out of it, though.
Jim Carrey
With Keith’s [my fiance] murder, I was changed. I thought I would be a prosecutor forever, but there were so many days when I would leave the courtroom during a trial, and go down the hall to the ladies’ room, and go into a little stall, and cry.
Nancy Grace
Life is a play that does not allow testing. So, sing, cry, dance, laugh and live intensely, before the curtain closes and the piece ends with no applause.

If we took the mission statements of 100 large industrial companies, mixed them up while everyone was asleep, and reassigned them at random, would anyone wake up tomorrow and cry, ‘My gosh, where has our mission statement gone?’

Ambrose Bierce
It will startle you to see what slaves we are to by-gone times-to Death, if we give the matter the right word! … We read in Dead Men’s books! We laugh at Dead Men’s jokes, and cry at Dead Men’s pathos! . . . Whatever we seek to do, of our own free motion, a Dead Man’s icy hand obstructs us!
Nathaniel Hawthorne
I don’t see why you wouldn’t cry when you’re in an intense environment.

Gail Carson Levine
Gazing at the rain, I consider what it means to belong, to become part of something. To have someone cry for me.
Haruki Murakami
And that really captures the difference for the bullied straight kid versus the bullied gay kid, is that the bullied straight kid goes home to a shoulder to cry on and support and can talk freely about his experience at school and why he’s being bullied. […] And I couldn’t go home and open up to my parents.
Dan Savage
Boys say they don’t mind how you get your hair done. But then they leave you for someone with really great standard girl hair and the next thing you know you’re alone with a masculine crop crying into your granola.

DeBarra Mayo
I would never think of crying about any loss of an office, because that’s always a possibility, and if you’re professional, then you deal with it professionally.
Nancy Pelosi
‘Cry Baby’ is like this fairytale version of me. A lot of it is based on real events, and some of it is made up to make it more whimsical.
Melanie Martinez
Whoever is the first to cry “Stop the thief” is the one who is guilty.
Vladimir Putin
There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I’ve realized that it’s time for me to show my audience that you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect.
Katy Perry
If [Eva Braun] was crying upstairs, it wouldn’t be long before [Adolf] Hitler would quietly excuse himself and then make things right. What he said to her, I don’t know. Whether he said the words “I’m sorry,” I don’t know. But he was a charmer, he knew how to stop a woman from crying.
Gretl Braun

A hearty laugh gives one a dry cleaning, while a good cry is a wet wash.
Puzant Kevork Thomajan
I really, really, really want to do a silly romantic comedy where I can just have a crush on the guy, trip over myself, and laugh and be goofy. I just feel like all I do is cry, sob, and fight zombies and the bad guys.
Laurie Holden
Now gae your wa’sTho’anes as gude As ever happit flesh and blude, Yet part we maunthe case sae hard is, Amang the writers and the bardies That lang they’ll brook the auld I trow, Or neibours cry,’Weel brook the new’.

Jodi Picoult
Only against death does man cry out in vain.

The baby woke up before you did. I took him to the other room to let you get a little more sleep. We’ve been watching a game.” “Did he cry?” “Only when he realized the Astros were having another first-round play-off flame out. But I told him there’s no shame in crying over the Astros. It’s how we Houston guys bond.
Lisa Kleypas
Environmental laws give power to the people. Republicans can huff, puff and scream about what they consider strict regulations, but when they cry out for reform, for a quicker process, they’re really calling for a restriction of the rights of people to be involved in the planning process.
Daniel Kammen
I tried not to make God this big deal in Joan’s life. She treats God like a friend: she’s nice to him some days, and other days mean, and then cries when she needs help.
Amber Tamblyn
Men don’t cry!’ ‘Women can’t handle money!’ What limiting ideas to live with.
Louise Hay

I cry to you, my Lord, my rock! Do not be deaf to me, for if you are silent, I shall go down to the pit like the rest. Hear my voice raised in petition as I cry to you for help, as I raise my hands, my Lord, toward your holy of holies.

Mehmet Murat Ildan
So you don’t have time for concealer, you have time for powder for when you start crying later about how some boy doesn’t like you.
Jenna Marbles
You feel as if you’re not living a full life. Which, of course, is why – it’s my theory about why so many people who are heavily into computers are also into extreme sports and S&M. It’s because their bodies are crying out for some kind of action.
Brian Eno
I verily believe that her not remembering and not minding in the least, made me cry again, inwardly – and that is the sharpest crying of all.

on the instant clamorous eaves,
A climbing moon upon an empty sky,
And all that lamentation of the leaves,
Could but compose man’s image and his cry.
William Butler Yeats
I no more thought of style or literary excellence than the mother who rushes into the street and cries for help to save her children from a burning house, thinks of the teachings of the rhetorician or the elocutionist.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Those who suffer most cry out the least.
As with real families, my fictional family on ‘Life Goes On’ had its ups and downs, and as part of the fictional downers, the actors were often called to cry on cue. This absolutely terrified me, because I was a pretty happy kid who didn’t have much to cry about.
Kellie Martin
Driving a race car isn’t too far a cry from driving any other sports car, but driving one through Africa in the middle of the night offers a wide scree of new sensations.
Jonathan Miles
For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.

Gus Poyet
It’s harder to laugh than to cry.
Henry Thomas
The system is in place whereby if an umpire cries off, or both as was the case here, those umpires are to be replaced.
Mark Webber
It boggles my mind that the same people who cry ‘foul’ about rationing an instant later argue to reduce health care benefits for the needy, to defund crucial programs of care and prevention, and to shift thousands of dollars of annual costs to people – elders, the poor, the disabled – who are least able to bear them.
Donald Berwick
The storm lashes us, out of the confusion of grey and yellow the hail of splinters whips forth the childlike cries of the wounded, and in the night shattered life groans painfully into silence. Our hands are earth, our bodies clay and our eyes pools of rain. We do not know whether we are still alive.
Erich Maria Remarque
Ah! Up then from the ground sprang I And hailed the earth with such a cry As is not heard save from a man Who has been dead, and lives again. About the trees my arms I wound; Like one gone mad I hugged the ground; I raised my quivering arms on high; I laughed and laughed into the sky.
Edna St. Vincent Millay
Out of the red and silver and the long cry of alarm to the poet who survives in all human beings, as the child survives in him; to this poet she threw an unexpected ladder in the middle of the city and ordained, ‘Climb!
Anais Nin
I was in the car driving back, after having done a scene where I kill somebody, and I just said to the driver, “I can’t talk right now. I’m too emotional.” The whole car ride back, I was just crying.
Tinsel Korey
I always knew it was ill-fated, but he truly believed I would be his bride. I guess I’d never realized that before. He had taken my mucker hand and looked at my mottled face and believed we would wed. And he hadn’t seemed sorry. In fact, he’d swooped me up in a corridor and kissed me. That set me to crying.
Shannon Hale
What is so real as the cry of a child? A rabbit’s cry may be wilder But it has no soul.
Sylvia Plath
Everything I thought I’d hate about having children – the crying, the screaming – nothing fazes me. I love it all and it’s relaxed me.
Elton John
I’m very emotional. When I went through my first breakup, I thought it was the end of the world, and I thought I was going to die if I didn’t have him in my life. It was good to cry it out and just scream, or call my friends in the middle of the night crying.
Selena Gomez
Where the bee sucks, there suck I In the cow-slip’s bell i lie There I couch when owls do cry
William Shakespeare
I like to read Octavia E. Butler’s ‘Wild Seed’ over and over again. And J. California Cooper’s ‘The Wake of the Wind.’ That one makes me cry from joy. I’ll mourn – I’ll actually mourn – and then I’ll cry from joy. She’s wonderful.
Jill Scott
When Christ at Cana’s feast by pow’r divine, Inspir’d cold water, with the warmth of wine, See! cry’d they while, in red’ning tide, it gush’d, The bashful stream hath seen its God and blush’d.
Aaron Hill
Oh, for five hundred Elijahs, each one upon his Carmel , crying unto God, and we should soon have the clouds bursting into showers. Oh, for more prayer, more constant, incessant prayer! Then the blessing would rain upon us.
Charles Spurgeon
Love cannot accept what it is. Everywhere on earth it cries out against kindness, compassion, intelligence, everything that leads to compromise. Love demands the impossible, the absolute, the sky on fire, inexhaustible springtime, life after death, and death itself transfigured into eternal life.
Albert Camus
It’s true that if you cry hard enough for long enough, you can end up with blurred vision.
Sigrid Nunez

Mariah Carey
If by prayer
Incessant I could hope to change the will
Of him who all things can, I would not cease
To weary him with my assiduous cries;
But prayer against his absolute decree
No more avails than breath against the wind
Blown stifling back on him that breathes it forth:
Therefore to his great bidding I submit.
John Milton
The only way you can find it is through being alone with your thoughts at sufficiently long intervals to give that inner voice within you a chance to cry out in distinguishable language for you. ‘Here I am within you.’ That is the silent voice, the voice of nature, which speaks to everyone who will listen.
Walter Russell
You didn’t see him watching you dance with your dad. His eyes got all shiny. I thought he was going to cry. And on the way up here, in the elevator, he tried to play it off, but I could totally tell he was nervous.
Sylvia Day
Brethren, the crying sin of the church is her laziness after God.

As the body rolled to the ground Tarzan of the Apes placed his foot upon the neck of his lifelong enemy and, raising his eyes to the full moon, threw back his fierce young head and voiced the wild and terrible cry of his people.
Edgar Rice Burroughs
It was a hurting tune, resigned, a cry of heartache for all in the world that fell apart. As ash rose black against the brilliant sky, Fire’s fiddle cried out for the dead, and for the living who stay behind to say goodbye.
Kristin Cashore
For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.
Georges Rouault

Uday Hussein
If somebody hurts you, it’s okay to cry a river, just remember to build a bridge and get over it.
Taylor Swift
I hate a macho sort who doesn’t cry. They have to be a bit sensitive, don’t they? They have to be a bit sensitive, don’t they?
Emma Bunton
Come! Let us lay a lance in rest,
And tilt at windmills under a wild sky!
For who would live so petty and unblest
That dare not tilt at something ere he die;
Rather than, screened by safe majority,
Preserve his little life to little end,
And never raise a rebel cry!
John Galsworthy
The joke in our family is that we can cry reading the phone book.
Ron Reagan
I found the place where I was beaten bloody forty years earlier and dragged to jail and that made me cry. When the family came out, that made me cry, and the reason I had a hard time leaving Grant Park was that to see a million people like that, feeling the way that million people felt, was so exhilarating.
Bill Ayers
Diplomacy in a sense is the opposite of writing. You have to disperse yourself so much: the lady who comes in crying because shes had a fight with the secretary; exports and imports; students in trouble; thumbtacks for the embassy.

What does all this mean finally, I kept asking like a college kid. Why does it make me want to cry? Maybe it’s that we are all outsiders, we are all making our own unusual way through a wilderness of normality that is just a myth.
Anne Rice
By not paying attention to your body, you are putting it in the same predicament as a neglected child. How can a child be expected to develop normally if the parents pay no attention, if they ignore its cries for help, and remain indifferent to whether their child is happy or unhappy?

I had this dream in my head of, if I got hired by ‘SNL, what that moment would be like. And I dreamed that I would, like, collapse on the sidewalk and cry to the heavens. I got this call, and it didn’t happen naturally. But I did it anyway because I wanted to have that moment. So I did collapse.
Kate McKinnon
I have a really hard time watching my sister act in anything but especially anything where it’s a strong emotion. Whether she’s crying or she’s angry or she’s – whatever emotion she’s feeling I actually think that she’s feeling it and I want to hug her and make it all better.
Kay Panabaker
All the world knows how to cry but not all the world knows how to sigh. Sighing is extra.

Pam Brown
I raised two sons, and I know that even though they’re bigger and stronger than I am, they’re still little boys inside. They still cry, they still hurt. So whenever I write a male character, no matter how ‘heroic’ he may be, I think of my sons. And I remember that every man was once a little boy.
Tess Gerritsen
‘I Am Legend’ was a rich, emotional experience where you could be scared and cry, and there’s some wish fulfilment.

Joaquin Phoenix
There is a lot of advice on baby feeding, but almost nothing on how to help crying babies.
Harvey Karp
Acting is about giving yourself away, like the U2 song ‘With or Without You.’ You just don’t stay behind a character and make people laugh or cry. At some point you have to take off that mask, and when you do, you’re a human being, not just an actor. After all, I’m Catherine the person first. You share that.
Catherine Hicks

Darius Rucker
I’m one of those girls that cries at the drop of a hat. I’m oversensitive, if anything. I’m a mom. I’m very earthy, crunchy granola. I compost.
Alysia Reiner
I don’t think my mum ever understood my love of Doctor Who. Surely her strongest memory would have been me, standing at the top of the stairs, crying about how the “jelly men” were going to get me? Sorry, Mum, for those sleepless nights, but it was with good reason they called it Terror of the Zygons.
Steve Berry
I’m convinced that quite a lot of young people, when they get in trouble with the law, it’s a cry for help there. Because it’s not that they go out to offend. It’s that their behaviour is self-parading, it’s the big ‘I’. And sometimes that means they’re really lacking in confidence.
David Blunkett
It’s so difficult to describe [depression] to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness. I know sadness. Sadness is to cry and to feel. But it’s that cold absence of feeling — that really hollowed-out feeling.

Charles Churchill
The voice gets to the soul of a person more than any other instrument. Because it’s the voice. It sings talks, it cries, it laughs, it squeals, it barks, it shouts it whispers, There is no other instrument that can do that. We’re born with it.

Whitney Houston
Half the world cries Half the world laughs Half the world tries To be the other half

Shirley Temple
I was a great many far cries from myself.

I’m looking for something to laugh over. After long enough, your body just needs to keep the hydration. You can’t keep crying it out.

Christa Wolf
The first time my mom found condoms in my room, she literally started crying hysterically.

Malorie Blackman
I started down but Sam caught my arm and knelt down himself to look. “For crying out loud,” he said. “It’s a racoon.” “Poor thing,” I said. “It could be a rabid baby-killer,” Cole told me primly. “Shut up,” Sam said pleasantly.

Foxy Brown
To me, figure skating is a diving sport. It’s a sport made by the gods. It inspires people to cry, it inspires people to cheer, it pulls the emotions out of people.
Frank Carroll
The blood of Abraham, God’s father of the chosen, still flows in the veins of Arab, Jew, and Christian, and too much of it has been spilled in grasping for the inheritance of the revered patriarch in the Middle East. The spilled blood in the Holy Land still cries out to God–an anguished cry for peace.
Jimmy Carter
Give me the boy who rouses when he is praised, who profits when he is encouraged and who cries when he is defeated. Such a boy will be fired by ambition; he will be stung by reproach, and animated by preference; never shall I apprehend any bad consequences from idleness in such a boy.

Sarah Ban Breathnach
When I was 12, I used to be the best friend of the most beautiful girls, but just the best friend. They would always come to me to cry about a guy who broke their heart, and I would just be sitting there thinking, ‘I wish I was the guy and not the best friend.’
Diego Luna
Calm soul of all things! make it mine To feel, amid the city’s jar, That there abides a peace of thine, Man did not make, and cannot mar! The will to neither strive nor cry, The power to feel what others give! Calm, calm me more! nor let me die Before I have begun to live.

Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Creating emotion was what my career was all about. I wanted people to laugh at me; I wanted people to cry with me. I wanted people to feel good or to think about something when they watched me. I think that’s why, even not being an Olympic champion, I have such a huge following around the world.

People stood on their chairs, cheering and waving. And it was all for me! Waves of love flooded the stage and washed over me. I started to cry. The sweetness of such a moment is impossible to describe. One is both lover and beloved. … I’d found the one true, enduring romance of my life.
Bette Davis
I don’t get a chance to cry that often on film, so I was hoping that talent would come my way, that day.

Anthony Jeselnik
The infernal storm, eternal in its rage, sweeps and drives the spirits with its blast; it whirls them, lashing them with punishment. When they are swept back past their place of judgment then come the shrieks, laments, and anguished cries; there they blaspheme God’s almighty power.
Dante Alighieri
Being a good mother is really so hard and so important, and it’s this thing that all people long for. Think of all the soldiers who cry out for their mothers on the battlefield as they die. It’s a primal relationship.

Patricia Velasquez
I cry every chance I get.
Richard Gere
I might try that one thing, you know, that thing people do when their eyes get all wet and stupid—what’s it called? Crying? Or NOT. I might PUNCH you instead and trust that you won’t punch me back because of my endearing smallness. It would be like punching a child.

Jacqueline Woodson
One doesn’t have to pursue unhappiness. It comes to you. You come into the world screaming. You cry when you’re born because your lungs expand. You breathe. I think that’s really kind of significant. You come into the world crying, and it’s a sign that you’re alive.
Jamaica Kincaid
Cursed be all those on land and sea who eat their fill, cursed be all those who starve yet raise no hand in protest, cursed be all the bread, the wine, the meat which day by day descends deep in the entrails of the exploited man and turns not into freedom’s cry, the murderer’s ruthless knife!
Nikos Kazantzakis
The joke in our family is that we can cry reading the phone book.

Nicole Kidman
The conservatives who say, “Let us not move so fast,” and the extremists who say, “Let us go out and whip the world ,” would tell you that they are as far apart as the poles.

Ali Larter
I know I can do so much more than this, I know that I could be a life force, could love with a heart full of soul, could feel with the power that flies men to the moon.

When all the cries are still:
The stars and heavenly deeps

Being young, working class, and black, everything you do is policed. If someone hits you and you hit back, you are aggressive. If you cry, you are weak. You are kind of always pretending to be something.
Daniel Kaluuya
Christmas means Jesus came down and got involved in suffering. He hears your cries.

Philip K. Dick
My mother always told me, ‘Don’t make women cry.’

Neil Young

Richard Brautigan
The loneliest ebb of my life came on that Christmas eve, only one day after my arrival in New York. The abyss of loneliness. I ate a solitary dinner in a small cafe, and the very food tasted bitter with my unshed tears. One doesn’t dare cry in America. It is unmanly here.
Rudolph Valentino

Kurt Vonnegut
I love you,” he said. “You’re more dear to my heart than I ever knew anyone else can be. And I’ve made you cry; and there I’ll stop.” She was crying, but not because of his words. It was because of a certainty she refused to consider while she sat before him.
Kristin Cashore

Lewis Carroll
Love is a shadow. How you lie and cry after it
Sylvia Plath
More grievous than tears is the sight of them.
Antonio Porchia
Empathy isn’t the same thing as expressing emotions. It’s not about sharing your feelings – it can be really uncomfortable if a parent cries or loses strength at the moment her daughter needs it most. The message sent is that you need to be taken care of, not the other way around.

One baby is a patient baby, and waits indefinitely until its mother is ready to feed it. The other baby is an impatient baby and cries lustily, screams and kicks and makes everybody unpleasant until it is fed. Well, we know perfectly well which baby is attended to first.

The mind-forg’d manacles I hear.

Greg Behrendt
Crying is not an option.

Stephen King
What is the little one thinking about?
Very wonderful things, no doubt;
Unwritten history!

Yet he laughs and cries, and eats and drinks,
And chuckles and crows, and nods and winks,
As if his head were as full of kinks
And curious riddles as any sphinx!
J. G. Holland

Bonnie McFarlane

Elisabeth Elliot

Og Mandino
Every third person in the world is a drama queen. And crying ‘victim,’ especially when you’re not really a victim in any real way, feels good. It feels good to cry victim if you’re not one.

I kept making you cry… didn’t I? – Hatori Sohma

Shane Claiborne
I laugh, cry, go for movies, eat popcorn. All these things are pretty relaxing for me.
I’m haunted sometimes by the thought, what if we lived from that place all the time? What if we went there without tragedy striking first? The very thought of who we would be together, and the kinds of collectives decisions we would make…the kind of world we’d create … makes me want to cry sometimes.

Taylor Swift
When sparrows build and the leaves break forth My old sorrow wakes and cries.
Jean Ingelow
Men can’t bear to see women cry.

Robert Reich
I never wear mascara; I laugh until I cry too often.
Jeanne Calment
Of course we all break and we all cry and stumble. It’s whether you allow the negative experiences to define you or shape you and make you become who you are in the best possible way. You use them as tools.
KT Tunstall
My vanity is not dead. I laugh when I see pictures of myself as I am now-maybe so I won’t cry, but just because it is really funny how much I’ve changed.
Michael Zaslow
Bobby and I were married in 1954 and by now we know that anger does not mean “I don’t love you” or “I want a divorce.” It means, “I am wounded and in need of love, and I feel safe telling you about it because you are my family.” Sometimes our behavior with each other is no different from the cry of an unattended baby.
Bernie Siegel
Nothing makes an android feel more useless than when a human is crying.
Marissa Meyer
Things aren’t what they used to be’ is the rallying cry of small minds. When men say things used to be better, they invariably mean they were better for them, because they were young, and had all their hopes intact. The world is bound to look a darker place as you slide into the grave.
Joe Abercrombie
Love taught me to cry
So come on courage!
Teach me to be shy.

Bill Cosby
Like the suffering child, gang members act out of their despair, and their actions are all the more alarming now for our not having heeded their cry long ago. The shortsighted neglect that keeps us locked up in our outrage has also kept us from viable solutions.
Greg Boyle

Marilyn French
Virtually every beginning poet hurts himself by an addiction to adjectives. Verbs are by far the most important things for poems-especially wonderful tough monosyllables like “gasp” and “cry.” Nouns are the next most important. Adjectives tend to be useless.

Frank O’Hara

Sarah Paulson
Is Tyson okay?’ I asked. The question seemed to take my dad by surprise. ‘He’s fine. Doing much better than I expected. Though ‘peanut butter’ is a strange battle cry.

Emily Browning
The Autumn seems to cry for thee,Best lover of the Autumn-days!

Margaret George
O naked flower of my lips, you lie! I await a thing unknown or perhaps, unaware of the mystery and your cries you give, O lips, the supreme tortured moans of a childhood groping among its reveries to sort out finally its cold precious stones.

Kelly Osbourne

John Marsden
I asked a thief to steal me a peach: He turned up his eyes. I asked a lithe lady to lie her down: Holy and meek, she cries. As soon as I went An angel came. He winked at the thief And smiled at the dame- And without one word spoke Had a peach from the tree, And ‘twixt earnest and joke Enjoyed the lady.
William Blake
There’s no harm in a child crying: the harm is done
only if his cries aren’t answered. …If you ignore
a baby’s signal for help, you don’t teach him
ndependence… What you teach him is that no
other human being will take care of his needs
Lee Salk
No one saw me cry over my dad’s death for almost nine years. I hid what I felt, bottling up my emotions so tightly that almost nothing leaked out.
Jonny Bairstow
The notion that every well educated person would have a mastery of at least the basic elements of the humanities, sciences, and social sciences is a far cry from the specialized education that most students today receive, particularly in the research universities.
Joseph Stiglitz
back turned, you don’t have to look at what you’ve left behind. And the first person who turned their back on you can’t watch you break down and cry.
Ellen Hopkins
The idea of being a rock and roll musician sort of suited my talents and mentality. The freedom was great, but then I found out I wasn’t free. I’d got boxed in…The whole Beatle thing is just beyond comprehension … subconsciously I was crying for help.
John Lennon
I hold my peace, sir? no; No, I will speak as liberal as the north; Let heaven and men and devils, let them all, All, all, cry shame against me, yet I’ll speak.
William Shakespeare
God’s Teeth,’ he says. ‘I was only trying to wake you. You were crying out in your sleep.’ ‘I was not,’ I say, then look from his neck to my knife. ‘When I tried to wake you, you stabbed me.’ He sounds sore put out. and I cannot blame him.
R.L. LaFevers
I definitely feel moved and affected after interviews, but not in a way that’s anything other than positive. There are moments that make me want to cry, but not in any way I can’t handle.
Alison Rosen
I know now why you cry, but it’s something I can never do.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
When you’re happy you don’t always have to be laughing, and when you’re sad you don’t have to be crying; sometimes it’s the opposite. You laugh when you’re the most upset.
Freddie Highmore
Crying wasn’t like riding a bike. Give it up, and you quickly forget how it’s done.
Alice Hoffman
When you have heartbreak, what’s important is that you don’t go halfway. Go all the way down. Don’t take pills that keep you in limbo. Cry out all the feelings. Then your own energy for life will put you up again. You become stronger.
Marina Abramovic
The weather turned. Her skin seemed to grow a million extra pores, and all of them opened to take in the warmth and tenderness of the air. The sun on her face made her want to cry. Into all those millions of open pores came the sunshine, and other feelings as well. In and out. She was porous.
Ann Brashares
As I’ve watched the Berlin Wall come down, the cry for freedom in China, and the eastern bloc nations, I rejoice, because I see the bankruptcy of Marxist-Leninism, socialism in this world.
Jerry Falwell
EXISTENCE, n. A transient, horrible, fantastic dream,/ Wherein is nothing yet all things do seem:/ From which we’re wakened by a friendly nudge/ Of our bedfellow Death, and cry: “O fudge!”
Ambrose Bierce
Forth from his dark and lonely hiding-place, (Portentous sight!) the owlet Atheism, sailing on obscene wings athwart the noon, drops his blue-fringed lids, and holds them close, and hooting at the glorious sun in Heaven, cries out, ”Where is it?”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I’ve looked at the world for quite a few years now and I’ve found that if I don’t laugh, I’ll probably end up crying.” – Prince Kheldar of Drasnia
David Eddings
Thou know’st the first time that we smell the air we wawl and cry. When we are born we cry, that we are come to this great state of fools.
William Shakespeare
Paint here no draped despairs, no saddening clouds, Where the soul rests, proclaims eternity. But let the wrong cry out as raw as wounds, This Time forgets and never heals, far less transcends.
Stephen Spender
The passing of the years awakens in our hearts the cry for permanence.
F.B. Meyer
Although every pain has different degrees of importance, I go through all of the emotions – from crying, anger, bitterness, anxiety, etc. Feel it all. But by the end of the day, I am on my knees in prayer. The next day, I get up refreshed and begin to let it go.
Renee Lawless
… every time I got disappointed I’d remember the Roseannadanna philosophy that says that you shouldn’t cry over split milk ’cause if you spill some milk and instead of cleaning it up you just walk over it and start crying, they’re gonna put you on lithium.
Gilda Radner
It is no use painting the foot of the tree white, the strength of the bark cries out from beneath the paint.
Aime Cesaire
I remember when we kissed. I still feel it on my lips. The time you danced with me with no music playing. I remember the simple things. I remember till I cry. But the one thing I wish I’d forget, the memory I wanna forget is goodbye.
Miley Cyrus
My mother went to demonstrations. I remember her going to a big demonstration for Earl Brower and she came home crying and said the Communists were very mean and booed their people. I remember feeling sad at her feeling sad.
Grace Paley
Being a writer means crying over the sad parts, even though you already know it’s going to be okay.
Clare B. Dunkle
The sea cries with its meaningless voice,
Treating alike its dead and its living
Ted Hughes
It’s interesting – you had [George] Osborne crying at [Margaret Tatcher] funeral. She would have been the first person, she would have read these tears as being as fake as the smiles of his predecessors when they knifed her in the back.
Irvine Welsh
As an actor, when you’re winning the moment over, there’s a truth to your intention. You might laugh at it or you might cry at it, but I think your visceral reaction to it is a reaction to the truth of the moment.
Cuba Gooding, Jr.
See how ye Pharisee in the Temple stands,
And justifies himself with lifted hands.
Whilst ye poor publican with downcast eyes,
Conscious of guilt to God for mercy cries.
John Bunyan
I was a different kind of player as a kid and didn’t do too much shouting and screaming. If things didn’t go my way, I tended to get a bit overwhelmed. All I wanted to do was cry on my mom’s shoulder. I didn’t know how to handle defeat in front of a crowd, and I didn’t want to be the loser.
John McEnroe
I loved the Kennedy Center Honors because you just sit there, smile, wave, and cry.
Carol Burnett
The mind wants to forget because it weighs so much on the heart and soul. I am tired of crying and feeling so helpless. I want to breathe again -just for a little while.
Angelina Jolie
Am I now supposed to go on Oprah and cry and tell you my deepest, darkest secrets because you want to know?
Kevin Spacey
Cherry-ripe, ripe, ripe, I cry,
Full and fair ones; come and buy.
If so be you ask me where
They do grow, I answer: There,
Where my Julia’s lips do smile;
There’s the land, or cherry-isle,
Whose plantations fully show
All the year where cherries grow.
Robert Herrick
I find every sect, as far as reason will help them, make use of it gladly: and where it fails them, they cry out, It is a matter of faith, and above reason.
John Locke
When the world says, “Give up,” Hope whispers, “Try it one more time”.You have more potential than you believe you do.Don’t cry because its over, smile because it happened.
Dr. Seuss
I find the way the left comes up with these analogies interesting. Trump is a child. We can’t have a child run our country. The whole left has been turned into nothing but a bunch of people who never got out of day care, for crying out loud! They still live their lives as adults as though they’re still in day care.
Rush Limbaugh
That cry of the soul to be lifted out of the bondage of the narrow circle of life, which carries up to God the protest and yearning of suffering man, never finds a more sublime expression than where humanity is oppressed and religion is corrupt.
Hall Caine
We watch a romantic comedy because we want to cry, say, or an action movie so we can participate in heroics. Horror’s different. It can hit you with a moment of revulsion so hard you might want to erase the last five minutes of your life, please.
Stephen Graham Jones
I’m a Western-cultured man who subscribes to the ancient saw that men do not cry, I don’t cry either. I’ll go to a movie, for example, and not infrequently something triggers the urge to weep, but I don’t allow myself.
Rod Serling
The Fed wants to raise rates because they’ve been yelling and screaming about it. They’ve been crying wolf for so long that their credibility is shot, and I think they feel they need to.
Gary Shilling
Numbers have dehumanized us. Over breakfast coffee we read of 40,000 American dead in Vietnam. Instead of vomiting, we reach for the toast. Our morning rush through crowded streets is not to cry murder but to hit that trough before somebody else gobbles our share.
Dalton Trumbo
I cry and pray and try to find the positive or the lesson for my pain.
Lisa Vidal
He that first cries out stop thief, is often he that has stolen the treasure.
William Congreve
Awareness There is a dark place. A place where I have no eyes, no mouth. No words. I can’t cry out because I have no breath. The silence is so deep I want to die. But I can’t. The darkness and silence go on forever. It is not a dream. I don’t dream.
Mary E. Pearson
I remember a time when all my fans were crying and sad and going through hell. Now, we’re trying to uplift each other and accept ourselves for who we are, even if nobody else does.
Mary J. Blige
If you try to look But you don’t touch Then you won’t touch But you’ll never feel And if you don’t feel You’ll never cry And if you don’t cry Then you’ll never heal.
Harry Chapin
It is all about numbers. It is all about sequence. It’s the mathematical logic of being alive. If everything kept to its normal progression, we would live with the sadness-cry and then walk-but what really breaks us cleanest are the losses that happen out of order.
Aimee Bender
It’s a film made in a very radical creative manner. It was possible because we didn’t have to pander to capitalism. I think the film is also a humanistic cry for help for animation. It’s a film [Boy and the World] with sensitivities completely opposite to what the market wants to sell.
Alex Abreu
I had this lump in my throat, but I couldn’t even cry. I thought, I shouldn’t have gotten my hopes up. I was just sitting there in my car that I was two months behind on payments for, knowing I didn’t have money for rent.
Katy Perry
You really have to do your job as a writer and push people to be as creative as possible. What’s nice about the TV medium is you have such a connection to the characters that when somebody dies, the audience cries. They really feel it. You really don’t cry when someone dies in a horror movie.
Glen Mazzara
