Roddy Piper
If you’re not doing it for the right reasons, then you’d be dumb to be making documentaries.
Morgan Neville
Sometimes Harvey Weinstein will let me use the Miramax jet if I’m opening a supermarket for him.
Gwyneth Paltrow
The book of love has music in it In fact that’s where music comes from Some of it is just transcendental Some of it is just really dumb
Peter Gabriel
There’s no place on earth with more dumb girls per square foot than a college in California.
Roberto Bolano
There’s nothing more valuable than your freedom in your life. When you’re in the streets you’re gambling with that 24/7. If you don’t know that you’re just flat out dumb to me.
Yo Gotti
I don’t diet. I just don’t eat as much as I’d like to.
Linda Evangelista
I’m not dumb by a long shot. I’m just bad.
21 Savage
There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand the world. There is no such thing as a dumb question.
Carl Sagan
Everything was my fault. I was so dumb. But if I hadn’t made the mistakes I made, I wouldn’t have met the wonderful woman I’ve been married to for over 30 years, so I guess that makes the mistakes OK.
Donald Sutherland
I absolutely admit I had him in the handcuffs so he wouldn’t go anywhere while I checked the computer… I certainly wasn’t going to kill him. That’s hardly going to do my career any good, is it?
Boy George
I’ve always thought those guys are really funny. And I love Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin and Mary.
David Zucker
Paradoxically, when ‘dumb’ money acknowledges its limitations, it ceases to be dumb.
Warren Buffett
For me, it always comes back to the blogger, the author, the designer, the developer. You build software for that core individual person, and then smart organisations adopt it and dumb organisations die.
Matt Mullenweg
If someone gets married at 15, they’re either dumb or pregnant. I was both.
Carlene Carter
We’re going to move left and right at the same time.
Jerry Brown
I was provided with additional input that was radically different from the truth. I assisted in furthering that version.
Oliver North
I play dumb like Jessica Simpson plays dumb. But we know exactly what we’re doing. We’re smart blondes.
Paris Hilton
When I was a teenager, I was so dumb my mamma knocked me off the porch with a broom. You wish you had so good a mamma.
Deacon Jones
You can be plain and smart, or pretty and smart. You can even be plain and dumb! You just have to be yourself.
Ashley Tisdale
Arthur Miller wouldn’t have married me if I had been nothing but a dumb blonde.
Marilyn Monroe
I do lots of other drugs but I smoke pot maybe 5-10 times a year now. I used to smoke it all the time, but I don’t, and I haven’t for awhile. That’s just because it makes me – and I’m not saying this about everybody else – but it makes me kind of dumb and self-conscious.
David Cross
I don’t think women are dumb.
John Updike
I have always survived with comedy, in that I grew up very dyslexic and did not get good grades. I always thought I was dumb, and there are many people out there that would agree
Joel McHale
Republicans are relentless and they’re smart, too – they’re not all dumb – and on Election Day, they’ll be up at five in the morning.
Michael Moore
The Bay-man has made the worst and most worthless Transformers movie yet. I know, hard to believe, right? How could any summer blockbuster be as dull, dumb and soul-sucking as the first three Transformers movies? Step right up.
Peter Travers
The Bell never rings of itself; unless some one handles or moves it it is dumb.
[Lat., Nunquam aedepol temere tinniit tintinnabulum;
Nisi quis illud tractat aut movet, mutum est, tacet.]
I always wanted to make big action movies as a kid, and that was my dream. In a way, ‘Swingers’ was the thing I suffered through the most doing because of all that dialog, so I could eventually be allowed to do a big dumb action movie, honestly.
Doug Liman
I’m lucky because I had blonde hair for a while for this TV show I was doing – they had me dye my hair blonde – and every audition I was going out for was bleach blonde. The mean girl, the pretty girlfriend, and the dumb cheerleader.
Haley Lu Richardson
The Republicans are many things, but they’re not dumb. And if millions of people begin to stand up and fight back, they’re going to be thinking twice about doing very bad things.
Bernie Sanders
The wireless music box has no imaginable commercial value. Who would pay for a message sent to nobody in particular?
David Sarnoff
I love money. I love everything about it. I bought some pretty good stuff. Got me a $300 pair of socks. Got a fur sink. An electric dog polisher. A gasoline powered turtleneck sweater. And, of course, I bought some dumb stuff, too.
Steve Martin
If you talk with a Southern accent, it’s perceived as though you are slow. That’s not the case. I’ve met just as many dumb people who talk without an accent as with.
Jake Peavy
I was surprised. I’d always associated belief in heaven with, frankly, a kind of intellectual disengagement. But Gus wasn’t dumb.
John Green
Don’t assume I’m dumb because I wear a suit and tie.
David Mamet
For me personally, I just don’t have anything to prove anymore. I know exactly who I am, I know that I’m intelligent and acting dumb or acting like whatever. If that’s funny to me because I know it’s false then so be it.
Emma Chamberlain
Two things strike me dumb: the infinite starry heavens, and the sense of right and wrong in man.
Immanuel Kant
I see the merit in religion, and I see the need for faith and hope and sometimes people who are more snide look at people who are religious, particularly people in rock bands, and they’ll say, ‘Oh that’s dumb, you believe in whatever,’ but I think everybody believes in something.
Andy Biersack
You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.
John F. Kerry
When you’re rich, you don’t write checks. Straight cash, homey.
Randy Moss
In my industry, everybody wants to know everything about you, and it’s just dumb. I think the only way of maintaining some of that mystique is by not giving away too much about yourself. It has served me well so far. I never want to feel up for grabs.
Miranda Richardson
I find my readers to be very smart, and there is no reason to write dumb.
Amy Bloom
You can’t worry about saying something that will get you in trouble because the line changes so fast. If you try to navigate it, you will not only suck but eventually say something stupid and get yourself dumb anyway.
Jim Norton
I was recently on a tour of Latin America, and the only regret I have was that I didn’t study Latin harder in school so I could converse with those people.
Al Gore
It has come to my attention, that air pollution is polluting the air!
George W. Bush
I think war is a dangerous place.
George W. Bush
Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning?
George W. Bush
I take them 8 to 80, dumb, crippled, and crazy. Crisp and clean with no caffeine, and a pair of spandex or either tight jeans.
Big Daddy Kane
Nothing is the destiny of everyone, it is our commonness made dumb.
Mark Strand
Who in their right mind would ever need more than 640k of ram!?
Bill Gates
It’s not so much a thankless task, it’s more a job with no thanks
Colin Baker
I got arrested for a dumb, dumb incident my second year in the NFL.
Pat McAfee
I’m pretty cautious and not very athletic, so I’ve only had really dumb injuries, like sprained ankles and allergic reactions. I did have to go to the hospital after slicing my finger while trying to cut a Kaiser roll in half.
Mara Wilson
My first real business was bootlegging T-shirts – I was just a dumb kid. You go to a concert and pay $25 for a cotton T-shirt that says ‘Rolling Stones,’ ‘Lollapalooza,’ or whatever. On the outside they’re 10 or 15 bucks. We were the guys selling them for 10 or 15 bucks.
Kevin Plank
In Haig’s presence, Kissinger referred pointedly to military men as “dumb, stupid animals to be used” as pawns for foreign policy.
Bob Woodward
I kinda liked ol’ Shakespeare and them guys, you know. I went back and got my master’s just in case. I thought, if I ever needed it, I’d have the sheepskin to show people no matter how dumb I looked, actually I was about half intelligent. I got the degree to let ’em know I wasn’t as dumb as I acted.
Phil Robertson
Kids that are allegedly better students are in an elitist class in first and second grade and then they go to their high schools, they go to their universities and the normal dumb shits like me are down at the bottom. These people go to elitist schools and they replicate their elitist thoughts in the corporations.
Paul Orfalea
This letter gives me a tongue; and were I not allowed to write, I should be dumb.
[Lat., Praebet mihi littera linguam:
Et, si non liceat scribere, mutus ero.]
I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe – I believe what I believe is right.
George W. Bush
I am a dumb piece of meat
and I rot everyday
my flesh gives a rotting smell
and people say it’s the smell of life
and they come to me
and watch me rot
and get happy and upset and annoyed and disgusted and maybe sometimes feel
but they don’t realize they are rotting too.
Daul Kim
Young, dumb, lookin’ in the mirror tryin’ to figure out who I’m gonna be this year.
Men are basically smart or dumb and lazy or ambitious. The dumb and ambitious ones are dangerous and I get rid of them. The dumb and lazy ones I give mundane duties. The smart ambitious ones I put on my staff. The smart and lazy ones I make my commanders.
Erwin Rommel
That undefined and mingled hum, Voice of the desert never dumb!
James Hogg
It doesn’t even feel like racism is real. It just feels like the weirdest ploy, like we’re just being had on so many levels. It’s even kind of funny when you think about it. A reason not to like someone is ‘because you’re black.’ C’mon, man. How dumb is that?
Find your self-respect now. Don’t dumb yourselves down. Think of yourself as capable and worthy of finding a guy who is going to respect you, too. It’s so important, I mean, and the confidence you get from feeling smart and tackling something like mathematics, which is a challenge, right? Math is hard.
Danica McKellar
Back in the old days, guys used to wreck hotel rooms and trash rental cars and all that dumb stuff. When I came into wrestling, they were like, ‘We’re out of cars. You’re one of those wrestlers. No, we’re not renting a car to you.’ It was like that. We had to re-create, re-establish the trust.
Mark Henry
One of my favorite films is ‘Dumb and Dumber.’
Paul Dano
Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
Barbara Tuchman
One of the first lessons a necromancer learns is the art of playing dumb. Of course, one problem with playing dumb is that is seeps into your everyday life. ~Jaime Vegas
Kelley Armstrong
Elvis is not so difficult as Johnny Cash because his voice is so distinctive. If you try to copy Johnny Cash, it’s just going to sound dumb.
Brian Setzer
If you’re stumbling out of a bar, and people tweet about it, well, don’t be dumb. If you’re going to get falling-down drunk, stay at home – which I did a lot of.
Jason Bateman
I think how tan a person is, is directly proportionate to how dumb they are.
Natasha Leggero
The music that I wrote and recorded is music that I really enjoy listening to. It’s just dumb luck that a lot of other people do, too.
Tom Scholz
I think the best thing about being dumb is that it makes magic a lot better. Where the hell did that rat come from? I dunno, but I’m calling the cops because he just cut that lady in half.
Demetri Martin
Okay,” I said. “Just a normal afternoon and two normal people.” She nodded. “And so…hypothetically, if these to people likes each other, what would it take to get the stupid guy to kiss the girl, huh?” “Oh…” I felt like one of Apollo’s sacred cows-slow, dumb, and bright red. “Um.
Rick Riordan
Witchcraft scum exploiting the dumb turning children into punks and slaves.
Bob Dylan
Hollywood has the idea that movies have to be dumb. But especially movies for or about teenagers have to be really dumb!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Love was more than blind. It was deaf and dumb, too. It was catatonic. It was vegetative.
Francine Pascal
It’s a humbling thing being humble.
Maurice Clarett
There is certainly more in the future now than back in 1964.
Roger Daltrey
How ironical that it is by means of speech that man can degrade himself below the level of dumb creation — for a chatterbox is truly of a lower category than a dumb creature.
Soren Kierkegaard
Strangely, in slow motion replay, the ball seemed to hang in the air for even longer.
David Acfield
No one is dumb who is curious.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I know what it’s like to be growing up, called ‘deaf and mute’ and ‘deaf and dumb.’ They’re words that are very degrading and demeaning to people who are deaf and hard of hearing. It’s almost… it’s almost libelous, if you want to say that.
Marlee Matlin
If you think people are dumb, you’ll spend a lifetime doing dumb work.
George Lois
I hate it when people talk about Buffy as being campy… I hate camp, I don’t enjoy dumb TV. I believe Aaron Spelling has single-handedly lowered SAT scores.
Joss Whedon
I’m grateful for every stupid mistake and dumb joke I tried to make.
Bo Burnham
I may not beВ EinsteinВ but I know dumb plus dumb equals you.
Kelly Clarkson
I don’t know if many people realize that Dolph Lundgren is a chemical engineer. He’s not a dumb blond guy. This guy is smart and he’s a martial artist.
Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa
I had to go to a mirror and look at it. I couldn’t picture myself in my own head. I had no image beyond a stick figure. I wasn’t a mean person as a kid, or dumb, and something has to be said to justify excluding you.
Uma Thurman
I don’t want to be rich and I don’t want to be famous.
Gwyneth Paltrow
You’re young and dumb and quick at the tongue.
Kool Moe Dee
He was struck dumb at the words though he should not be surprised; his wife kept him in a perpetual state of speechlessness.
Sarah MacLean
So guys who are otherwise sensitive and thoughtful say and do ridiculously dumb things to impress other guys. It’s an enormous performance, but guys know that if they fail, they’ll be ridiculed as sissies mercilessly.
Michael Kimmel
“Superhero” is a term that’s been borrowed in order to say “big and larger than life and loud and active and dumb.” And I don’t think that’s a useful definition. That’s more a dismissal.
Kurt Busiek
Sometimes I lie awake at night thinking about all the dumb things I do every day… If I live to be eighty and I do ten dumb things each day… That would be about two hundred and ninety thousand dumb things… When you add up all the dumb things you do, it’s best to use round figures.
Charles M. Schulz
People assume actresses are afraid to get older; the truth is the roles get a whole lot more compelling once you’re too old to play dumb.
Olivia Wilde
My ass may be dumb, but I ain’t no dumbass.
Samuel L. Jackson
Horror, let’s face it, is basically pretty dumb. You’re writing about events that are preposterous, and the trick is to dress them up in language so compelling that the reader doesn’t care.
T. E. D. Klein
I was going to be a chemical engineer – I was a science nerd – that was the plan. I secretly applied to USC and NYU and got a scholarship to go to NYU based on a dumb animated short I made. It was a huge shock to me and my family.
Jon Watts
You may, or may not, have better child care instincts than your husband; but his can certainly be developed. If you don’t respectthe natural parenting talents that each of you has, you may inadvertently cast the two of you into the skewed but complementary roles of the Expert and the Dumb Apprentice.
Jean Marzollo
I bought a company in the mid-’90s called Dexter Shoe and paid $400 million for it. And it went to zero. And I gave about $400 million worth of Berkshire stock, which is probably now worth $400 billion. But I’ve made lots of dumb decisions. That’s part of the game.
Warren Buffett
I’ve learned that sometimes when people don’t like what you have to say, and don’t want to debate you on ideas, it’s just easier to call you a dumb blonde from Fox News.
Gretchen Carlson
I used to act dumb. That act is no longer cute. Now, I would like to make a difference God has given me this new chance.
Paris Hilton
We human beings do a lot of dumb things, and war is certainly the dumbest.
Natalie Babbitt
I think if you’re gonna get a tattoo, just get one: the words, ‘I’m dumb.’ That’s it. That way in 10 years, when you go, ‘Why did I get this?,’ you can be like, ‘Oh, I’m dumb!’
Daniel Tosh
There are some screw-ups headed your way. I wish I could tell you that there was a trick to avoiding the screw-ups… but they’re coming for ya. It’s a combination of life being unpredictable, and you being super dumb.
Aaron Sorkin
We made this really dumb decision to put on the cover nothing from South Park but just a real life photo of a piece of pooh dressed up like Mr. Hankey, and a lot of people didn’t, they didn’t even know what it was.
Trey Parker
I think William Shakespeare was the wisest human being I ever heard of. To be perfectly frank, though, that’s not saying much. We are impossibly conceited animals, and actually dumb as heck. Ask any teacher. You don’t even have to ask a teacher. Ask anybody. Dogs and cats are smarter than we are.
Kurt Vonnegut
When I was first divorced, I started dating younger women, and it was really exciting. But after a while I was like, ‘This is just dumb.’
Louis C. K.
We’re not going to dumb down for them. They have to move up. They’re the network and we’re the show.
Alia Shawkat
College men from L.S.U., went in dumb, come out dumb, too.
Randy Newman
One thing I do find in the “lost” generation or something is a kind of abhorrence of history, you know, like it’s boring, dumb, or just not interesting. I think it’s terribly interesting if you can get your head around how it relates to where you’re standing right here and now.
Ani DiFranco
I genuinely had always thought, this sounds dumb, I always thought that ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ was shot in the basement of RuPaul’s house.
Courtney Act
If you’re dumb enough to do crack, you’re supposed to die. It’s evolution.
Joe Rogan
It has taken us that long to get the deaf, dumb, and blind black men in the wilderness of North America to wake up and understand who they are.
Malcolm X
The thing about smart people is that they seem like crazy people to dumb people.
Stephen Hawking
Those who survived the San Francisco earthquake said, ‘Thank God, I’m still alive.’ But, of course, those who died, their lives will never be the same again.
Barbara Boxer
Put one dumb foot in front of the other and course-correct as you go.
Barry Diller
For if Men are to be precluded from offering their Sentiments on a matter, which may involve the most serious and alarming consequences, that can invite the consideration of Mankind, reason is of no use to us; the freedom of Speech may be taken away, and dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep, to the Slaughter.
George Washington
I turned back to the mirror, seeing that there were no lines on it. It was empty. “What happened to my mirror?” I said, bewildered. Then realizing that I was looking at the back of the dumb thing, I swore and turned it over.
Kim Harrison
He had no idea where the stereotype of dumb giggly blondes came from. Ever since he’d met Annabeth at the Grand Canyon last winter,when she’d marched toward him with that Give me Percy Jackson or I’ll kill you expression, Leo had thought of blondes as much too smart and much too dangerous.
Rick Riordan
I think humans are stupid. We fight and kill each other. I think that’s dumb. Aliens would be smarter than that and wouldn’t approach things on that level. I can’t really fathom it being a negative thing for aliens to visit.
Michelle Rodriguez
With the exception of the New York Times, Fox news, and Lou Dobbs of CNN, and talk radio, the rest of the mainstream media has basically been silenced like a bunch of dumb monkeys.
Curt Weldon
George W. Bush has a new campaign slogan: “A reformer with results.” I don’t know what it means [but] I think it’s better than his old campaign slogan: “A dumb guy with connections.
David Letterman
I believe that anyone who doesn’t read remains dumb. Even if they know how, failing to regularly ingest the written word dooms them to ignorance, no matter what else they have or do.
Edward Bunker
The saddest thing for a girl to do is to dumb herself down for a guy.
Emma Watson
If only faces could talk.
Pat Summerall
[I made in army] all sorts of dumb things, but it did teach me a lot about the silk-screen process.
Warren MacKenzie
The streets are safe in Philadelphia. It’s only the people who make them unsafe.
Frank Rizzo
I can’t stand any music that requires its singers to be so dumb they wear their baseball caps backwards.
Terry Pratchett
I did rocks, all this dumb stuff. But now it’s just trying to stay afloat and just get through the days.
Adam Sandler
Before my dad passed away, I would miss a lot of baby showers and weddings, sacrificed a lot of family and friend events for dumb road dates. I don’t do that anymore. It’s gone in the other direction. I’m more inclined to put family and friends first.
Ali Wong
I would say the best moment of all was when I caught a 7.5 pound perch in my lake.
George W. Bush
The camera’s dumb, it don’t [sic] care who’s pushing the button. It doesn’t know.

Love is not dumb. The heart speaks many ways.
Jean Racine
If somebody’s dumb enough to ask me to go to a political convention and say something, they’re going to have to take what they get.
Clint Eastwood
That was a f****g dumb question. If I didn’t think I was gonna win, why the hell would I be fighting?!
Rocky Marciano
People deal with models like they are children. They think they can pull one over on you. It’s actually funny. I’m always like, I’m about to pull something on you, and you’re so focused on thinking I’m dumb, you’re not even going to know.
Kate Upton
He’s one of the best power forwards of all-time. I take my hands off to him.
Scottie Pippen
Beauty fades! I just turned 29, so I probably don’t have that many good years left in me.
Gwyneth Paltrow
During the strict macrobiotic chapter of my life, I ate miso soup every day for breakfast and sometimes with dinner as well.
Gwyneth Paltrow
You’re never as smart as you think you are when you are winning and never as dumb as you feel when you are losing.
Michael Hyatt
As a comedian, I’m always quoting ‘Caddyshack’ and ‘Dumb and Dumber.’
Rob Riggle
Writing for TV entails saying every dumb idea that comes into your head to a room of people. And doing so with the confidence that it doesn’t make you look like an idiot.
Taylor Jenkins Reid
If I had thought about it, I wouldn’t have done the experiment. The literature was full of examples that said you can’t do this.
Spencer Silver
In the United States, we’ve put our elections on Tuesday. That’s dumb. In modern life, it makes absolutely no sense.
Shaun King
This is a great day for France!
Richard M. Nixon
When the first big paycheque with ‘Dumb And Dumber’ hit, I went: ‘Gosh, I wonder if this will affect my performance. Will I do a take and think, was that worth $7 million?’ But that never happened. If anything, it made me rebel against that thing when people who get rich start playing it safe.
Jim Carrey
I think everyone has a door in their brain that says, ‘Do not exit here.’ If you go past it, you’ll find all the dumb thoughts in there, all the stupid things that shouldn’t be said. I’ve probably gone there more than anyone should in a given lifetime.
Fred Willard
When everything is visible and appears to be dumb, that’s when the details take on larger meanings.
David Byrne
When Andy died, I just drank to dumb my mind.
Maurice Gibb
If you Google me, you’ll find plenty of “dumb blonde” references – even though I graduated with honors from Stanford and studied at Oxford University. I don’t let it bother me.
Gretchen Carlson
It’s far too much to say that effective hoping is the only – or even the biggest – part of what it takes to succeed. If 14% of business productivity can be attributed to hope, that means 86% is dependent on raw talent, fickle business cycles, the quality of the product you’re selling, and often pure, dumb luck.
Jeffrey Kluger
And I… started off dumb, raised by the hoodrats, listen to the radio wishin that i could rap.
Tupac Shakur
Then bless thy secret growth, nor catch At noise, but thrive unseen and dumb; Keep clean, be as fruit, earn life, and watch, Till the white-wing’d reapers come.
Francis Bacon
At my shows you have time to relax, time to just enjoy something really dumb, time to laugh at something that’s weird or unexpected and time to think. There’s all sorts of things happening and it’s great being able to go any way I choose at any given moment.
Reggie Watts
The Rolling Stones suffered a great loss with the death of Ian Stewart, the man who had for so many years played piano quietly and silently with them on stage.
Andy Peebles
To realize the promise of 5G, we will need smart networks, not dumb pipes. Dumb pipes won’t deliver smart cities. Dumb pipes won’t enable millions of connected, self-driving cars to navigate the roads safely at the same time.
Ajit Pai
The myth of the strong black woman is the other side of the coin of the myth of the beautiful dumb blonde.
Eldridge Cleaver
The history of innovation is the story of ideas that seemed dumb at the time.
Andy Dunn
I never want to dumb it down. If there’s any simplification, it’s just a simplification to make sure that the reader understands the point that the character is trying to make.
Tony DiTerlizzi
For someone in an alternative job, an alternative lifestyle, it’s very hard to explain what I do. So I sometimes try and dumb it down as much as possible, so I’m changing what I do every time! So sometimes I’m in an Uber, and they ask, ‘So what do you do?’ and I say, ‘I’m a comedian,’ or, ‘I’m a graphic designer.’
Connor Franta
A good photograph is like a good hound dog, dumb, but eloquent.
Eugene Atget
I am the voice of the voiceless; Through me the dumb shall speak. Till the deaf world’s ears be made to hear. The wrongs of the wordless weak. And I am my brothers keeper, And I will fight his fights; And speak the words for beast and bird. Till the world shall set things right.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Even if I’d wanted to work at Goldman Sachs, they weren’t going to hire me, because I was saying things like, ‘That’s a dumb question’ when I was asked something stupid in the interviews. I just didn’t have a lot of respect for authority.
Mark Pincus
There’s only 2 reasons that you hate gay marriage;
1. You’re dumb, or 2. You’re secretly worried that dicks are delicious.
Joe Rogan
Dumbledore raised his finger for silence, a silence which fell as though he had struck Uncle Vernon dumb.
J. K. Rowling
I had my first bowl of gazpacho when I was fifteen in Spain, and the impression it made was a lasting one.
Gwyneth Paltrow
I’d go for parts that didn’t pay a dime, and there would be 300 to 400 actors there. It could be very discouraging. To make it in this business, you have to have a kind of dumb sense that you’re really good. You have to believe that someone is going to recognize that.
Michael Imperioli
Although I am not stupid, the mathematical side of my brain is like dumb notes upon a damaged piano.
Margot Asquith
This is so dumb – once time I spray-tanned before a race, and I didn’t shower, and I sweated the whole thing off on my car. It was so bad, I told a fan I would never do it again.
Amber Cope
When you work you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music. Which of you would be a reed, dumb and silent, when all else sings together in unison?
Khalil Gibran
A lot of people who don’t write for kids think it’s easy, because they think kids aren’t as smart as they are, or that you have to dumb down what you would normally write for kids. But I think you have to work harder when you write for kids, to make sure every word is right, that it’s there for the right reason.
Brian Selznick
I love a blouse that’s dumb. I love to use the word ‘dumb.’ It’s not knowing, and the word ‘blouse’ is so out of fashion that I love it – ‘a blouse that’s dumb.’
Marc Jacobs
The blue-collar is not supposed to read Horace, nor the farmer in his overalls Montale or Marvell. Nor, for that matter, is the politician expected to know by heart Gerard Manley Hopkins or Elizabeth Bishop. This is dumb as well as dangerous.
Joseph Brodsky
No man ever loved like Jesus. He taught the blind to see and the dumb to speak. He died on the cross to save us. He bore our sins. And now God says, Because He did, I can forgive you.
Billy Graham
So okay, the world through my eyes, what is that world? Well, I see a lot of dirty stuff, and I see a lot of dumb stuff.
Lisa Hanawalt
Just as dumb creatures are snared by food, human beings would not be caught unless they had a nibble of hope.
Hedonic Engineering — The human nervous system studying and improving itself: intelligence studying and improving intelligence. Why be depressed, dumb, and agitated when you can be happy, smart, and tranquil?
Robert J. Wilson
I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb… and I also know that I’m not blonde.
Dolly Parton
Looking for a gem, we are sometimes dumb enough to try to hold on to a lump of coal, convinced that it will turn into a diamond in our lifetime… but all it does it get sh*t all over you until you burn it and use the energy for something else.
Ingrid Weir
When people didn’t really know who I was, and I would get on stage, they would be distracted by what I looked like, so I would have to dumb myself down, in a way, for people to feel safe to laugh.
Anjelah Johnson
All my memories of being in Las Vegas with Bobby were great. Frank Sinatra brought us to the Sands Hotel in 1965. When we worked that lounge, it was a great lounge. I think it was bigger than the showroom. We were two 25-year-old dumb kids from Orange County in Las Vegas with The Rat Pack.
Bill Medley
Thats not a place where I’m considered good-looking.
Mark Hoppus
As you get older, all those dumb clichГ©s, they’re all true. You only have a certain amount of time left, and you should only spend it doing the things that you want to do. It’s all true.
Rob Reiner

Jim Gaffigan
Yesterday was Chinese New Year. It’s the Year of the Rabbit. And here’s how dumb I am. I’m still writing the Year of the Pig on my checks.
David Letterman
I also think I was incredibly immature and inexperienced. I had little idea how to navigate the many network politics so allies became enemies and those responsible for helping and mentoring me to succeed in my new position had other agendas. At the end of the day I was young and dumb but super talented.
Cynthia Garrett
I’d played dumbasses a lot. On Mad About You, I played a very dumb waitress and they saw me.
Lisa Kudrow
I really like dumb romantic comedies; that’s the way I can turn my brain off and let go.
Laura Jane Grace
The big Wall Street firms, seemingly so shrewd and self-interested, had somehow become the dumb money. The people who ran them did not understand their own businesses, and their regulators obviously knew even less.

I started as a writer. I had the dumb act, but I made my living from writing.
Jerry Lewis
God hears no more than the heart speaks; and if the heart be dumb, God will certainly be deaf.

Barbara W. Tuchman
They misunderestimated me.
George W. Bush
When I think over what I have said, I envy dumb people.
Seneca the Younger
I don’t like any one race or look or type of guy. My tastes as far as looks go are very diverse. I like guys with scruffy beards and leather jackets, but I also like a clean-cut ‘GQ’-type guy, so my tastes are very ranged among somebody who laughs at my dumb jokes, too. I have plenty of them.
Sasha Grey
No matter what you do, no matter how stupid, dumb or damaging you judge it to be, there is a lesson to be learned from it. No matter what happens to you, no matter how unfair, inequitable or wrong, there’s something you can take from the situation and use for your advancement.
Peter McWilliams
You know, I’ve always wanted to do dramas. When I moved to L.A., that was my dream, because I never really grew up watching comedies, although of course I loved ‘Dumb & Dumber.’
Seann William Scott
Where has thou been all the dumb winter days When neither sunlight was nor smile of flowers, Neither life, nor love, nor frolic, Only expanse melancholic, With never a note of thy exhilarating lays?
Alfred Austin
The oracles are dumb, No voice or hideous hum Runs thro’ the arched roof in words deceiving.
John Milton
Life is like watching Fast and the Furious 6. Its not easy, most of the time its just dumb and pointless, everything is fake, there is a lot of noise, but if you close your eyes and picture yourself in an open field or a quiet forest, you can maybe make it to the end without killing yourself
Jon Lajoie
When I was in first grade, some psychologist told my mom if I didn’t go to graduate school, she basically failed as a parent, because I had the aptitude to do it. Which is so dumb. Huge pressure!
I’m pretty goofy and I make a lot of dumb jokes – life is too short to be serious, so I guess that’s how I flirt. To be honest, I think I’m too shy and reserved to be a proper old fashioned flirt.
Cory Monteith
I think the guy who tells you he knows about music is really dumb, or he’s lying to himself.

If a man is dumb, someone is going to get the best of him, so why not you? If you don’t, you’re as dumb as he is.
Arnold Rothstein
I certainly don’t dumb down the way I dress.
Karen Katz
Power of generalizing gives men so much the superiority in mistake over the dumb animals.
George Eliot
I would love to tell you that it’s been absolutely perfect, that I’ve been a man that’s been super Christian. But I’ve had mistakes, dumb things I’ve regretted, so it’s not a perfect life. But it’s one that has helped me make better decisions.
A.J. Styles

Kaley Cuoco
There’s a lot of smart women doing dumb things with their health, and I fell into that category as well.
Wendy Williams
The shocking possibility that dumb people don’t exist in sufficient numbers to warrant the millions of careers devoted to tending them will seem incredible to you. Yet that is my central proposition: the mass dumbness which justifies official schooling first had to be dreamed of; it isn’t real.
John Taylor Gatto
When Eve ate the apple her knowledge increased. But God liked dumb women so Paradise ceased. Gwen Goodnight. Her Work.
Jennifer Crusie
Lucy: Our teacher wants us to write an essay on praying. Charlie Brown: Praying is important when you wake up at two o’clock in the morning feeling sick from eating something dumb the day before. Lucy: I’ll just say we were out of town and I didn’t have time to write anything.
Charles M. Schulz
Did you ever stop to think why cops are always famous for being dumb? Simple. Because they don’t have to be anything else.

Shenaz Treasury
I’m too old to be governed by fear of dumb people.
Sam Waterston
Working with Jim Carrey is an absolute gas. I have never laughed so hard for so long. Had he been on-board for the sequel of Dumb & Dumber, I would’ve jumped on, with no hesitation.
Jeff Daniels
The trees come up to my window like the yearning voice of the dumb earth
Rabindranath Tagore
I’m going to be honest with you – I don’t know a lot about Cuba’s healthcare system. Is it a government-run system?
John F. Kerry
I got very lucky that some of the things that I wanted to work did work. Not because I knew what I was doing, just through dumb luck, it just looked beautiful and sounded great and captured some magical mood. And you just have to hope that you get lucky when you do big things like making a movie, or something.
Wayne Coyne
Well, David Eckstein, like most of us, has 20 digits. Ten fingers. Ten toes.
Tim McCarver

Johann Kaspar Lavater
I know it sounds so dumb, but when you’ve had pink hair for 12 years and take that away, you’re looked at in a different light.
Jeffree Star
How do you know that, Philo, dear?” But Philologos had had enough of being condescended to. “Because, Lamion, I am not as dumb as you think I am, even if you are.” By the time Lamion had parsed this to make sure that there was in fact an insult at the end of it, Hilarion had laid a restraining hand on his arm.
Megan Whalen Turner
Therefore, the Negro nation are, as a rule, submissive to slavery, because [Negroes] have little [that is essentially] human and have attributes that are quite similar to those of dumb animals, as we have stated.

There’s sacrificing for your art, and then there’s just being dumb.
Megan Mullally
My second hit was a flop.
Shakin’ Stevens
We can’t control what people do or say, even if it’s dumb.
Lisa Scottoline
People don’t realise how dyslexia affects your confidence and how brutal it can be. People think you’re dumb, and you know you’re not. it’s just how your brain works.
Kaya Scodelario
I go back and forth as to whether I think Nancy Pelosi’s really this dumb or not. Although, every time I hear her speak I get closer and closer to concluding that she is this dumb.
Rush Limbaugh
I don’t feel that I’m making movies for iPhones. If someone wants to watch it on an iPhone, I’m not going to stop them, especially if they’re paying for it, but I don’t recommend it. I think it’s dumb, when you have characters that are so small in the frame that they’re not visible. I’m trying to make an epic.
James Cameron
I wanna kiss you. I couldn’t care less about the team struggguulliing…We’re looking to make a noise now and … I wanna kiss you!

George Clinton

Jeff Vandermeer
Smoking kills. If you’re killed, you’ve lost a very important part of your life.
Brooke Shields
Men do really dumb things. We see weapons of mass destruction where there are none. We over-emphasize sports. We place athletic achievement ahead of academic achievement. We spoil and pamper child athletes and then complain when they act spoiled and pampered as adults.
Jason Whitlock
I’m thin-skinned in a way that’s just dumb.
Sarah Koenig
Some people, they’ve had a lot of fun, even if it was dumb fun and a shitty body of work.

Jack Gantos
So, how did you all meet?
Donna Air
I don’t put a ton of time into my on-stage style, largely because I’m dumb about clothes. But I have friends who are very smart about clothes, and they teach me things. For the show, I’m mainly concerned with feeling comfortable, being able to jump around and get wild.
K. Flay
Do you think Arabs are dumb? They gave us our numbers. Try doing long division with Roman numerals.
Kurt Vonnegut
Yeah, that test says he’s dumb as a fence post, but when he hits he looks like Einstein to me.

Paul MacCready
I believe if I should die,
And you should kiss my eyelids where I lie
Cold, dead, and dumb to all the world contains,
The folded orbs would open at thy breath,
And from its exile in the Isles of Death
Life would come gladly back along my veins.
Mary Ashley Townsend
Sometimes what I actually love to do is go to a farm and get fresh milk or watch a pig get slaughtered.
Jake Gyllenhaal
I have started smiling! I’ve mastered this smirk; it’s a smile that isn’t a smile.
Victoria Beckham
Never feel dumb. Not knowing who or what is no sin. Ignorance is simply the measure of what you haven’t got to yet. I find writers and works every day that I haven’t got to, haven’t even heard of.
Thomas C Foster
We should remember in our dealings with animals that they are a sacred trust to us from our Heavenly Father. They are dumb and cannot speak for themselves.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Heaven is never deaf but when man’s heart is dumb.
Francis Quarles
And every stone and every star a tongue, And every gale of wind a curious song. The Heavens were an oracle, and spoke Divinity: the Earth did undertake The office of a priest; and I being dumb (Nothing besides was dumb) all things did come With voices and instructions.
Thomas Traherne
Our present culture may be largely shaped by this strange idea of isolating children’s thought from adult thought. Perhaps the way our culture educates its children better explains why most of us come out as dumb as they do, than it explains how some of us come out as smart as they do.
Marvin Minsky
In contrast to what the women have been told (that they are dumb and ugly) and how they have been controlled with confined strictures, the dance class is a safe place in which the women have choices and can improve their self-concept.
Judith Lynne Hanna
If I could go into the woods and kill a bear myself, I’d wear it proudly as a trophy.
Nigella Lawson
Eskimos are uncivilised because they don’t have any shops.
Jodie Marsh
It’s great when a huge amount of money goes from a dumb corporation into the hands of an awesome band with brilliant ideas who can use it to keep being a band for a year, as opposed to a band that’s already huge taking one of those things – that’s more pathetic.
Alex Scally
Here’s a good rule of thumb; too clever is dumb.

Steve Kroft
Debt is dumb. Cash is king.
Dave Ramsey
The American people frankly have been, over many, many years – to be blunt – fat, dumb and happy. If they want their children to compete with children in India, China or Korea, they better get them a far better education.
Eli Broad
The ant, who has toiled and dragged a crumb to his nest, will furiously defend the fruit of his labor, against whatever robber assails him. So plain, that the most dumb and stupid slave that ever toiled for a master, does constantly know that he is wronged.
Abraham Lincoln
I don’t know anybody that takes less than market value to stay on a team that wants to be traded. That would be bad for business, right? That would kind of be really dumb.
Spencer Dinwiddie
My sister might be dumb, but that doesn’t make her all that different from the rest of us. She’s just like any other American. Except she’s Canadian. And retarded.
Bonnie McFarlane
It’s such a shame that you were put in a category of a dumb blonde, but that’s what they did in the ’50s. You fought the system, but you didn’t win.
Mamie Van Doren
I’ve now been in 57 states. I think one left to go.
Barack Obama
The innocent supposition, entertained by most people, that even if they are not brilliant, they are not dumb, is correct only in a very relative sense.
James Gould Cozzens
Isn’t it weird that I’m getting all emotionable?
Jessica Simpson
Sometimes along the way in my life I don’t want a smart woman right now, I want a dumb woman. But then you think, that doesn’t work, now I want a smart woman. Then you get a smart woman and you go no, that doesn’t work so it’s just killing me right now.
Gerard Butler
It’s time for the human race to enter the solar system.
Dan Quayle
So, I was sitting there and I watched ‘Paranormal Activity’ and I was like, ‘Boy, white people do dumb stuff in movies.’ So I was like, ‘Why don’t they just leave the house… What if paranormal activity happened to a black couple?’
Marlon Wayans
There’s a difference between what I call a dumb ghost and a smart ghost. The smart ghost is Hamlet’s father – you know, he says, “Get revenge, my son!” That’s incredibly rare. It’s much more the grey lady in the same place everyday, moving across the floor.
Peter James
Inherited hatred (i.e. hatred your parents schooled you in) is not only stupid, it is destructive – why make your only driving force hate? Seems really f***ing dumb to me.
Lemmy Kilmister
Any time you employ thousands of people, some people do dumb things.
Erik Prince
Some cats are blind and stone deafdeaf some. But ain’t no cat wuz ever dumb.

DeMarcus Cousins
Stocks have reached what looks like a permanently high plateau.

Artie Lange
Acting is easier and smoother than singing – it’s less drama.
Beyonce Knowles
It’s not that you can do this calculated move to try to further your career. You just follow what’s in your heart, and later you look back and go, ‘I was either really dumb or really smart, I can’t believe I did that.’
Dierks Bentley
Only very intelligent people don’t wish they were in politics, and I’m dumb enough to want to be in there.
Orson Welles
We’re going to turn this team around 360 degrees.
Jason Kidd
The bells they sound on Bredon, And still the steeples hum. “Come all to church, good people”- Oh, noisy bells, be dumb; I hear you, I will come.
A. E. Housman
Courage is a hard thing to figure. You can have courage based on a dumb idea or mistake but you’re not supposed to question adults or your coach or your teacher because they make the rules. Maybe they know best but maybe they don’t. It all depends on who you are, where you come from.
Michael Oher
There is still in many schools complete misapprehension that children with reading difficulties are stupid. It is so easy to teach a child that they’re dumb. There needs to be a recognition that you need different ways to teach children who have got reading problems.
Jackie French
John Irving
Dress like Britney Spears and think like me, and everything will be fine.
Madonna Ciccone
What happens when an industry transitions from using one or more ‘smart’ and centralized networks to using a common, decentralized, open, and dumb network? A tsunami of innovation that was pent up for decades is suddenly released.

Courtney Love
I’m calm,” Rachel insisted. “Every time I’m around you, some monsters attack us. What’s to be nervous about?” “Look,” I said. “I’m sorry about the band room. I hope they didn’t kick you our or anything.” “Nah. They asked me a lot of questions about you. I played dumb.” “Was it hard?” Annabeth asked.
Rick Riordan
I use three main tools in writing: instinct, hard work and dumb luck. Dumb luck is missing a train and, while you wait for the next one, writing a key word, line or verse. When this happens often enough you begin to believe in Fate.
David Massengill
Silence in love betrays more woe – Than words though ne’er so witty; A beggar that is dumb, you know, may challenge double pity.
Walter Raleigh
So what, I’m living in a park. Parks are beautiful. I’m a musician. And I’m tired of dumb people who don’t know where I come from.
Jaco Pastorius
All my friends were doing just dumb stuff that kids do, like making out with people at parties and starting to date… I didn’t know any gay people growing up or any queer people growing up, and so I just really felt alone and kind of lost, and I just wasn’t experiencing life.
Troye Sivan
I really just love dumb humor. I watch a lot of SNL.
Taylor Louderman
Dumb jewels often, in their silent kind, more than quick words, do move a woman’s mind.
William Shakespeare
Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can’t help but cry. I mean I’d love to be skinny like that but not with all those flies and death and stuff.
Mariah Carey
I wasn’t as used to the new dumb questions, so when men I had once thought of as wise daddies now asked me ‘How do you write?’ I did not try and spill red wine in their suede pants. I would just smile and say, ‘On a typewriter in the mornings when there’s nothing else to do.’
Eve Babitz
So, where’s the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?
Christina Aguilera

A lot of the time, people think I’m really dumb or really uncomfortable talking to them, which is kind of a real thing.
Nathan Fielder
I like clever lyrics, funny lyrics, dumb lyrics. I can never put my finger on what I like about them.
James Murphy
Recorded music is basically free now. I used to tour to promote a CD, but now I make a CD to promote a tour. I’ve moved on and live with the new reality, but I do get frustrated when people do dumb things.
Peter Frampton
A lot of times, I’ll get roles where it’s the dumb blonde or the cheerleader, and I just have no interest – and it can be a great movie, it really can – or the mean girl; those things don’t intrigue me much.
Maika Monroe
I really didn’t say everything I said.
Yogi Berra

Michael Chiesa
There’s the perception Danni Minogue is the sweetest little thing in the world but she’s not… she’s got balls of steel.
Sharon Osbourne
I realized, dumb people don’t know they’re dumb. When people try to make me laugh and they try to be funny, that’s when they lose me. I find a lot of comedy in honesty.
Nathan Fillion
People generally thought that sharks are dumb eating machines. After some study, I began to realize that these ‘gangsters’ of the deep had gotten a bad rap.
Eugenie Clark
[Apostol Paul’s] views were translated as, “Your rule is to be kind to black people; you don’t beat them.” It’s very much the way we treated women in the 14th and 15th centuries. A woman was not human, and you should be kind to your wife like you are to all dumb animals. That was the mentality.
John Shelby Spong
And hey, it’s okay to laugh at yourself sometimes, I do dumb things all the time (haha). But when it get’s too personal, get your tough skin on and stand firm.
Christina Grimmie
I want to make sure everybody who has a job wants a job.
George H. W. Bush
I may be a dumb blonde, but I’m not that blonde.
Patricia Neal
I’m a meathead. I can’t help it, man. You’ve got smart people and you’ve got dumb people.
Keanu Reeves
I remember, when I was a young guy in the SEAL teams, I was very afraid of making mistakes and looking stupid or doing dumb things and getting a bad reputation.
Jocko Willink
So long as men are compassionate to such a degree that they cannot hear a fly struggling in a spider’s web without emotion it can never be reasonably maintained that it is their natural impulse to wound and kill the dumb animals, or to butcher one another in what is called the field of honour.
John Newton
Consider Palin for President? The most powerful job on earth? You don’t give the dumb cheerleader the Uzi. That’s in the Bible.
Christopher Titus
We were one of the first to say, ‘Let’s make a really nice shirt for skaters and let’s make it really well.’ We don’t dumb down for somebody young; we are always trying to do something new.
James Jebbia
The loss of life will be irreplaceable.
Dan Quayle
Would it not be much better to have a president who deliberately lied to the people because he thought a war was essential than to have one who was so dumb as to be taken in by intelligence agencies, especially those who told him what he wanted to hear?
Andrew Greeley
My point, once again, is not that those ancient people told literal stories and we are now smart enough to take them symbolically, but that they told them symbolically and we are now dumb enough to take them literally.
John Dominic Crossan
In my early career I was sort of anti-drag. I said, ‘Drag is dumb and boring, and I want to be an effing weirdo and go crazy and rebel.’ But now it’s like I’ve come to respect and understand how deep and traditional drag as an art form is.
There is a great life-giving, warming power called Love, which exists in human hearts dumb and unseen, but which has no real life, no warming power, till set free by expression.

Lorrie Moore
It’s modern-day slavery.
Adrian Peterson
I will say that the thing that I use too much, and I need to stop, but the F-word is pretty great. When you say it, it’s so viscerally strong. It also serves as a great punctuation point – it can really emphasize how dumb something is.
Hasan Minhaj
The beauty of a financial institution is that there are a lot of ways to go to hell in a bucket. You can push credit too far, do a dumb acquisition, leverage yourself excessively – it’s not just derivatives [that can bring about your downfall].
Charlie Munger
Half of being smart is knowing what you are dumb about.
Solomon Short
Smart is knowing if you’re dumb. Knowing when to shut up and to listen to people that are smarter than you.
Chris Rock
I know a lot of people think I’m dumb. Well, at least I ain’t no educated fool.
Leon Spinks
I was so wild and crazy and dumb in my car. It didn’t run but 30 miles an hour. You made do.
Muddy Waters
The principal advantage of the non-parental lifestyle is that on Christmas Eve you need not be struck dumb by the three most terrifying words that the government allows to be printed on any product: “Some assembly required.”
John Leo
If you can read and don’t, you’re dumb.
Malcolm Forbes
FREE animals of the jungle/air/sea/mountains are called ‘wild’, ‘savage’, ‘vicious’, ‘beasts’ who defend themselves and their own territories from greedy, ruthless ‘brave’ men armed to the teeth/ with snares, tranquilizing guns, other. Enslaving them forever, then murdering them, THEN calling them ‘dumb’!!!

I cannot tell you how grateful I am – I am filled with humidity.
Gib Lewis

America is dumb, it’s like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive.
Johnny Depp

Jennifer Armintrout
I’m definitely ditzy and people believe that about me. But I mean, I’m not dumb.
Jessica Simpson
Dumb nerd, scratch everything you already done heard
I could go platinum if my album wasn’t more than one word.
I’ve been noticing gravity since I was very young.
Cameron Diaz
People don’t understand that when I’m on the show I’m totally relaxed, hanging out, having a fun time, watching videos, and being goofy. Sometimes I say stupid comments, just being funny, and people think I’m a dumb person.
Chanel West Coast
I had a lot of it in my day, but I don’t like it. It’s a dumb drug. Your whole concentration goes on getting the next fix. I find caffeine easier to deal with.
John Lennon
When I first was on Big Time Rush, the TV show, I did a lot of silly things. Among the first episodes that came out, my buddies wanted to have a viewing party, so we turned it into a drinking game. Every time I did something dumb, we took a shot. We were hammered!
James Maslow
Project management is the art of creating the illusion that any outcome is the result of a series of predetermined, deliberate acts when, in fact, it was dumb luck.
Harold Kerzner
The Muses were dumb while Apollo lectured.
Charles Lamb
I’m not dumb, I just wasn’t educated.
Michael Oher
I’d like – inviting aliens and have them observe what we do because so much of what we do that we take for granted will just be weird or extraordinary or just plain dumb when observed by an alien from another civilization.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Listen baby, Muver love you. Muver not dumb. Listen baby: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. Thas the alphabet. Twenty- six letters in all. Them letters make up words. Them words everything.
Marketing is not inherently bad. That’s just dumb. That’s said by somebody that isn’t doing enough work.

Angie Harmon
If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again.

I have the charisma of the chipmunk. I never have thought I was smart. I thought the people I dealt with were dumb.
Hyman Rickover
That’s why I kept wrestling – I’m too dumb to realize I can’t win, so I keep wrestling until I ultimately succeed. I’m pretty dang stubborn.
Rulon Gardner
Emo is pathetic. It’s a tired attempt at making bad music cool, all while rocking dumb haircuts and unisexual belts. Furthermore, adding the suffix ‘-core’ to a description doesn’t make it innovative. It makes you look like a tool with no imagination.

Architecture is not created by individuals. The genius sketch … is a myth. Architecture is made by a team of committed people who work together, and in fact, success usually has more to do with dumb determination than with genius.
Joshua Prince-Ramus
The great American work ethic has not been lost, but it has been eroded by years of dumb government policies that Mr. Trump and Congress can correct.

He may look dumb, but that’s just a disguise.
Charlie Daniels
In a world of dumb terminals and telephones, networks had to be smart. But in a world of smart terminals, networks have to be dumb.

Two grand slams in a week – man, that’s seven or eight ribbies right there.
Bill Madlock

Andy Hobsbawm

You have to be highly intelligent to get away with a dumb joke. That takes a pretty smart fella.
Tracy Morgan
We are breaking new ground in the territory of dumb with Shooting Fish. Dumb, but in good taste. Silly, but not ridiculous.
Dan Futterman
Remember common sense? Bring it back. Abolishing ICE, our main federal immigration enforcement agency, is a colossally stupid idea. Floating the possibility of impeaching Brett Kavanaugh, whose confirmation just jolted the GOP back out of its coma, is painfully dumb.
S.E. Cupp
With the history of us, a book wouldn’t necessarily be the best thing.
Keisha Buchanan
Dumb luck brought on the move from business to acting. I had moved to New York when I was 23, in the year 2000. On a lark, I went to audition for a soap opera. I thought, ‘Hey, this will be a really fun story to tell my grandkids one day, that I auditioned for a soap!’
Teddy Sears
I don’t think this is an example of life and limb being at risk. I like the fact that our fans care.
Carmen Policy
Dumb as a drum vith a hole in it, sir.
Charles Dickens
If you don’t include your women graduates in your breeding pool and leave them on the shelf, you would end up a more stupid society…So what happens? There will be less bright people to support dumb people in the next generation. That’s a problem.
Lee Kuan Yew
Whoever said a horse was dumb, was dumb
Will Rogers
I feel my best when I’m happy.

I don’t know why someone would be dumb enough to challenge Donald Trump.
Lara Trump
We actually have not required in this law that you carry health insurance.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
The oracles are dumb, No voice or hideous hum Runs through the arched roof in words deceiving. Apollo from his shrine Can no more divine, With hollow shriek the steep of Delphos leaving. No nightly trance or breathed spell Inspires the pale-eyed priest from the prophetic cell.
John Milton
I think the smart people will get even smarter, and the dumb people will get even dumber. But I think they all will enjoy A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila, no matter how you slice it. You know, we keep eating it up. Some of the most intelligent people I know cannot get enough of it. That’s a dangerous thing.
Joel McHale
The world is always ending, and the end is always being averted, by love or foolishness or just plain old dumb luck.
Neil Gaiman
If you look at WWE 1998-99, was it over the top? Sure it was, but they were still doing well. If you get into 2004-05, you’ve got HLA, Katie Vick and things like that – that’s where it just gets dumb.
Eli Drake
There is a tendency to try to dumb everything down and turn everything into a one-paragraph press release or even less, just a slogan.
Malcolm Turnbull
Nobody’s dumb in this relationship [with his wife] or in the relationships of any of the other guys in the band. But it’s also not the clichГ© that those on the outside envision.
Jon Bon Jovi
Most beautiful dumb girls think they are smart and get away with it, because other people, on the whole, aren’t much smarter.
Louise Brooks
I always wanted to be a hairdresser.
David Beckham
Sitting there clapping and smiling… it’s difficult. You’re like, ‘Don’t worry about it, you just double faulted, you just played a really dumb point. Keep positive.’ Then more clapping. That would annoy me as a player.
John McEnroe
There’s this notion that artists are supposed to be dumb and frivolous. I completely disagree with that.
Lauren Jauregui
Musical people always want one to be perfectly dumb at the very moment when one is longing to be perfectly deaf.

When I pictured heroin, I pictured some crazy crackhead with no shoes under a bridge. You never think that is going to be you. And it never was me. I was never under a bridge, and I always had shoes.

Tony Parsons
I am who I am. I can’t pretend to be somebody who makes $25,000 a year.
Gwyneth Paltrow
Quotes are for dumb people who can’t think of something intelligent to say on their own.
Bo Burnham
I know this is stupid, but part of me felt like if I could come see you today, if I could convince you to go with me tonight, then maybe I could still change things. It’s dumb, I know. It’s not like Levana cares if I, you know, might have actual feelings for someone.
Marissa Meyer
There is no such thing as a dumb poet or a handless painter. The essence of an artist is that he should be articulate.
Algernon Charles Swinburne
What we think of as our sensitivity is only the higher evolution of terror in a poor dumb beast. We suffer for nothing. Our own death wish is our only real tragedy.
Mario Puzo
If we do not do this our churches will lighthouses without light, wells without water, dumb witnesses, sleeping watchmen, silent trumpets, messengers without tidings, a comfort for infidels, jubilant joys to the devil, and an offense to God.

Lisa Kudrow
Winter is for women The woman still at her knitting, At the cradle of Spanish walnut, Her body a bulb in the cold and too dumb to think.
Sylvia Plath
You often see in Washington those who disagree you described as stupid or evil. It’s one of the most unfortunate trends of modern political discourse. Portraying opponents as too dumb to know the truth but smart enough and wanting people to suffer.
Ted Cruz
A lecturer often makes you feel dumb at one end and numb at the other.
Evan Esar
One of my favorite films is ‘Dumb and Dumber.’ I’d love to do some really silly comedy someday.
Paul Dano
I’m not saying you need to take a break because you’re crazy. I’m saying you need to take a break so you can be crazy, and people aren’t going to judge you. You’re going to do dumb stuff from here on out. But do it in your own time. Do it safely. You can afford to protect yourself and still have fun.
Miley Cyrus
Getting offended is a great way to avoid answering questions that make you sound dumb.
Tucker Max

Gisele Bundchen
Happiness is a carnival game. It’s never as easy as it looks, but the dumb ones always seem to be walking around with a big stuffed animal.

All I’m asking for is what I want.
Rickey Henderson

In the early part of my life I carried the flame for fiery women: perky women who were not dumb.
Debra Winger
Why did God make so many dumb fools and Democrats?
William Powell
Helen Keller became deaf, dumb, and blind shortly after birth. Despite her greatest misfortune, she has written her name indelibly in the pages of the history of the great. Her entire life has served as evidence that no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as reality.
Napoleon Hill
Technology is super smart and also completely dumb. It doesn’t know what you’re putting on there. It works almost in an automated fashion.
Lance Ulanoff
The way I’ve always governed my life as far as fiscal policy goes is I’m smart enough to know that I’m dumb about it, so I surround myself with smart people in much the same way a hole surrounds itself with a doughnut. I just pay things off. That’s all I do.
Dennis Miller
I keep re-watching Friends. It’s so dumb. There’s so much good TV and I’m really into all of it.
If I could read a book, I’d definitely read one of yours.
Paris Hilton
I may not be smart enough to do everything, but I am dumb enough to try anything.
Geoff Johns
Things go wrong for me, all the time, with technology. I’m not familiar enough with it, and I’m too old school a brain to be able to figure it out. I’m dumb. Anything that I have to attack with my thumbs, for any period of time, makes me feel stupid. So, I try to avoid it, as much as possible, to protect my thumbs.
Johnny Depp
Westminster Abbey is nature crystallized into a conventional form by man, with his sorrows, his joys, his failures, and his seeking for the Great Spirit. It is a frozen requiem, with a nation’s prayer ever in dumb music ascending.
M. E. W. Sherwood
We’ve got to dumb America up again.
Ray Bradbury
Dumb luck brought on the move from business to acting. I had moved to New York when I was 23, in the year 2000. On a lark, I went to audition for a soap opera.
Teddy Sears
I do remember at my very first opening in 1979 another artist coming up to me, and he was haranguing me, saying, “Did you really intend for these things to be so dumb? You just put it there and took a picture of it.” He wouldn’t let it go. So that’s what made me think about the dumbness aspect more.
Laurie Simmons
People are always asking me if I’m Lynyrd Skynyrd or which one’s Skynyrd, but I always say, ‘Who’d ever have a dumb name like that?’
Ed King
If somebody’s dumb enough to ask me to go to a political convention and say something, they’re gonna have to take what they get.
Clint Eastwood
A computer program is a message from a man to a machine. The rigidly marshaled syntax and the scrupulous definitions all exist to make intention clear to the dumb engine.
Fred Brooks
I do love poop. I can’t help it. The heart wants what it wants. I enjoy being clever and pithy and political, but nothing’s going to get me like dumb stuff.
Sarah Silverman
If you stay away from parties, you’re called a snob. If you go, you’re an exhibitionist. If you don’t talk, you’re dumb. If you do talk, you’re quarrelsome. Pardon me while I change my nail polish.
Lana Turner
I said to my doctor at the beginning, ‘I’m no good; I can’t do anything. I’m dumb.’ He suggested I try educating myself by listening to Boston’s educational TV station. He said I had a perfectly good mind.
Anne Sexton
Over time, however, the endless war in Iraq began to play a role in natural selection. Only idiots signed up; only idiots died. Back home, the average I.Q. soared.
Ted Rall
He knew one thing for sure, though. Whatever happened, Matt would have some handy excuse. He’d make up some story or change an old one, find some dumb quote to explain it all.
Charlie Higson
It’s a wise person, I guess, who knows he’s dumb, and an honest person who knows he’s a liar. And it’s a dumb person, I guess, whose convinced he’s wise…-Bob Slocum

Charli XCX

Henry David Thoreau
A bachelor’s life is no life for a single man.
Samuel Goldwyn

Richard Griffiths
The downside of playing dumb is that you sound dumb.
Rachel Maddow
The government satirizes itself. All we can wish is that there will be a large number of Americans who will realize how dumb this all is, and how greedy and how vicious. Such an audience is dwindling all the time because of TV.
Kurt Vonnegut
Rage is for little wrongs; despair is dumb.
Hannah More
Teenage girls these days are more and more getting lured into thinking they should dumb themselves down, and that’s going to attract the wrong kind of guy, and it’s serious. It’s serious business.
Danica McKellar
Brains, like cabbages, are beautiful-but in a different way. Cabbage heads are dumb and sterile, whereas brains are personal, intelligent and vibrant.
Carl Pfeiffer
Teens are not like the weird, dumb dwarves you have around your house. They are actually you when you were younger. Why not write a book which is as sophisticated as a book for an adult, but is about the concerns that teenagers actually have?
Matthew Tobin Anderson
Don’t dumb it down. The audience is smart and gets what you are doing.
Bruce Paltrow
We’re blind, deaf and dumb. It is only that Self, which is our life force that makes who and what we are. The realization of that is self-realization.
Frederick Lenz
Solutions are not the answer.
Richard M. Nixon
CIA Director George Tenet has now testified before the 9/11 commission and he said we are still making the same dumb mistakes, like leaving memos on the President’s desk.
David Letterman
I actually feel most at home when I find people who make me feel really dumb, who are brilliant at their particular things. And then I gather these people, put them in a room and watch incredible things come out of it.
Mick Ebeling
We’re rewarding either the reality or the appearance of youth, which is why you have all these people in their fifties trying to act like they’re seventeen. You know, it’s great to be young. Be young. By all means, be young. But always remember that youth is also kinda dumb, and doesn’t know a lot yet.
Patton Oswalt
Profound thoughts and profound experiences get revealed to be tricks that we play on ourselves, and poetry gets revealed to be just, like, some dumb words that somebody put in an interesting order.
Phil Elvrum
Every time I have a bikini wax, Cameron Diaz holds me down.
Gwyneth Paltrow
If I could push a button and get rid of all these dumb people flying Nazi flags and have them never show up – They are a big problem for the Right.
Mike Cernovich
With all due respect to Speaker Hastert, trying to eliminate the IRS by adopting a national retail sales tax is a very dumb idea.
Bruce Bartlett
I always loved jokes. It’s such a dumb, facile thing to say, but it’s true. I remember being a kid and getting those joke books from the Scholastic Book Club and loving comedy from a very young age.
Josh Gondelman
The Bell never rings of itself; unless some one handles or moves it it is dumb.
I’m a real dumb-dumb in real life. I’m just book smart. But definitely not street smart. The other day I lost my jacket in a cab. And I’ll forget things every time I leave the house.
Masi Oka
I’ll do anything for $50. People are always trying to get me to do dumb things. The possibilities are endless.
Ryan Cabrera
I’m smarter than the average; I just act dumb. That’s what gets people’s attention; you act dumb, you get people’s attention.
Gilbert Arenas
First of all, we love football. We want to be on the football field as much as we can be. If we can be out there, it may be stupid, it may be dumb, call me dumb and stupid then, because that’s what… I want to be on the football field.
Brian Urlacher
To try and to pretend that there’s no difference between where we come from is so dumb.
Allison Williams
I don’t want idiots in my audience. So if me coming forward with what my beliefs are is what you need to hear to not be a fan anymore, that’s great. That means next time I show up in whatever said city, your dumb ass won’t be there.
Pete Davidson
Beauty fades, dumb is forever.
Judy Sheindlin
All this talk of using tax policy to ‘assess social costs’…what a dumb idea. The only way to stop polluters is to put them against walls and shoot them.
David Brin
Your ideas and the things that you do are dumb and stupid and make no sense – until you start getting recognized and making money. Then you’re a genius.
The great lawyer who employs his talent and his learning in the highly emunerative task of enabling a very wealthy client to override or circumvent the law is doing all that in him lies to encourage the growth in the country of a spirit of dumb anger against all laws and of disbelief in their efficacy.
Theodore Roosevelt
It’s certainly a difficult time right now to try to make small, smart films. I’m not trying to be self-serving, but you get to Hollywood, and if you want to make something big and loud and dumb, it’s pretty easy.
Terry Zwigoff
The police are not here to create disorder, they’re here to preserve disorder.
Richard J. Daley
I’m convinced the Beatles are partly responsible for the fall of Communism.
Milos Forman
I don’t really think it’s appropriate for me to be picking and choosing in the primaries. It’s pretty dumb politics for a Republican to choose between Republicans in a contested primary because obviously you’re going to be offending some people.
John Cornyn
The ballparks have gotten too crowded. That’s why nobody goes to see the game anymore.
Yogi Berra
Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled.
Barbara Tuchman
Dumb people are just blissfully unaware of how dumb they are.
Patrick Star
Now, to find dinosaurs, you hike around in horrible conditions looking for a dinosaur. It sounds really dumb, but that’s what it is. It’s horrible conditions, because wherever you have nice weather, plants grow, and you don’t get any erosion, and you don’t see any dinosaurs.
Nathan Myhrvold
Ray Lewis is the type of guy, if he were in a fight with a bear I wouldn’t help him, I’d pour honey on him because he likes to fight. That’s the type of guy Ray Lewis is.
Shannon Sharpe
They should have focused more on me.
Sebastian Telfair
Evil will always triumph, because good is dumb.
Rick Moranis
Pretend to be dumb, that’s the only way to reach old age.
Friedrich Durrenmatt
If you’re deaf, dumb, and blind to what’s happening in the world, you’re under no obligation to do anything. But if you know what’s happening and you don’t do anything but sit on your ass, then you’re nothing but a punk
Assata Shakur
I had a period in my life in the ’90s where I was definitely young, dumb, and full of even more dumb.

Amy Tan
He was a man of great statue
Thomas Menino
Drugs have nothing to do with the creation of music. In fact, they are dumb and self indulgent. Kind of like sucking your thumb!
Courtney Love
When I was a kid, among the other embarrassing things I would do, and there’s a list of stupid things, but I would make these dumb comedy tapes. I would often make prank phone calls, but I would also do it with friends.
J. J. Abrams
I think maybe Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker. But he was just so strung out on Oxycontin he missed his flight. Rush Limbaugh, ‘I hope the country fails’ – I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? … He needs a waterboarding, that’s what he needs.
Wanda Sykes
You only know that you’re smart because you’re around dumb people from time to time!
Chris Rock
I can preach until your deaf and dumb, I’m in that soul saving army beating on that big bass drum.
Elvis Presley
I’d like to make it very clear that getting bitten by a venomous snake is dumb, clumsy and nothing to be proud of.
Romulus Whitaker
Poor people aren’t making dumb decisions because they are dumb, but because they’re living in a context in which anyone would make dumb decisions.
Rutger Bregman
I’ve never been sentimental about my horse. The horse doesn’t give a damn about you. If you want to know the truth – horses are dumb.
Tim McCoy
The less you know about a field, the better your odds. Dumb boldness is the best way to approach a new challenge.
Jerry Seinfeld
‘Sexy’ doesn’t have to come with the price tag of being dumb.
I met Jay Jonhson. I won him the way poor people occasionally win the lottery: Shameless perseverance and embarrassingly dumb luck, and every time I see one of those sly, toothless, beaten-down souls on TV holding a winning ticket, I think, Go, team.
Amy Bloom
Many shows in television have tried to do a Web element, and usually it’s dumb. ‘iCarly’ has set the bar in television and Internet. I don’t think there is better example. That may be the most significant thing about it.
Dan Schneider
Were I to stop oil production, we`d have to import it from Iraq and from Caracas, Venezuela or from North Dakota where the environmental standards are much lower, on trains that have already proven themselves unsafe, or by more ships that are causing significant pollution in the world. It`s just really dumb.
Jerry Brown
It’s smart to be friends with one’s sex partner but dumb to have sex with one’s friends.
Letty Cottin Pogrebin
Will the highways on the Internet become more few?
George W. Bush
I’m not just a dumb basketball player who got lucky and graduated from college. My ratio for professor to student was nine-to-one so it wasn’t like I wasn’t going to class. I was going to class every day.
C. J. McCollum
My favorite movie is Dumb and Dumber. It’s a classic and I can pretty much recite the entire movie.
Derek Holland
If I am going to trash others for their dumb predictions, I must at least hold myself to the same sort of accountability.
Barry Ritholtz
I get really flowery and verbose in my adult books, but I don’t think I dumb down my Y.A. It’s just cleaner and more snappy. And the adult books have multiple points-of-view. In my Y.A., it’s always third person from the main character’s perspective.
Gail Carriger
I wish I were dumber so I could be more certain about my opinions. It looks fun.
Scott Adams
Having a record company and putting out my own CD. There’s clothes and shoes. There’s also an upcoming book deal that I’m trying to do. I’m trying to be positive. I’m a big fan of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Metta World Peace
I want all the kids to do what I do, to look up to me. I want all the kids to copulate me.
Andre Dawson
The biggest threat to McDonald’s lies within – and that is us as a company becoming complacent. There are a lot of companies that get fat, dumb and happy and take their eye off the ball and forget about serving customers.
Charlie Bell
We parents ask dumb questions, therefore we get dumb answers.
Bill Cosby
I always said it was to be dumb enough to do what Marlon Perkins said to do.
Jim Fowler
There aren’t any real dumb people in my voices. It’s always irritated me about Hollywood dialogue – there’s so much dialogue that would just bore a Ford mechanic. This is not how people talk.
Jim Harrison
I’m not the same person I was. I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me. I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that.
Paris Hilton
I won’t talk about who I’m dating. Because it’s dumb. It leads to nowhere good. I let everybody else in the media do that for me. It takes the responsibility off my shoulders!
Renee Zellweger
People think it’s funny when a dumb person can’t do things the same way they can.
Daniel Keyes
And in this silence of the dumb and these speeches of the blind, in this medly of people bound together by the same grief, terror and hope, in this hatred and lack of understanding between men who spoke the same tongue, you could see much of the tragedy of the twentieth century.
Vasily Grossman
I actually think Bill Gates is conventionally smarter, even though it’s a dumb word, but mental processing power – I’ve watched him use four different screens, process information, get to the right answer, boom boom boom.
Walter Isaacson
It’s killing for fun or profit I can’t stand. There’s a difference between an Eskimo killing a seal for survival and some dumb broad strolling down Fifth Avenue in a leopard coat.
Amanda Blake
When we put up with any situation we don’t have to put up with, it’s not because we’re dumb. We put up with it, because we want the lesson only that situation can teach, and we want it more than freedom myself.
Richard Bach
Summer romances cometo an end. That was part of the deal. They are built like certain plants or insects, not able to survive more than one season. I thought we would be different. We were, I guess, but not in the way I thought. I truly believed that we would never let each other go. The young are so dumb.
Harlan Coben
Nobody ever thought of me as dumb. They always knew me as cerebral, a thinking person. Educated and so on. But I was always given glamorous roles.
Zeenat Aman
The movie Spinal Tap rocked my world. It’s for rock what The Sound of Music was for hills. They really nailed how dumb rock can be.
Jack Black
We can’t play stupid hockey, dumb hockey, greedy hockey, selfish hockey. We have to put the team ahead of our personal feelings.
Terry Crisp
I thought lightning wasn’t supposed to strike in the same place twice….sure it does…but only if you’re too dumb to move.
Jodi Picoult
I don’t think you need to dumb down to a child, you merely have to be clear, you know?
Mary Chapin Carpenter
Profound thoughts and profound experiences get revealed to be tricks that we play on ourselves, and poetry gets revealed to be just, like, some dumb words that somebody put in an interesting order.
Phil Elverum
I have a skeptical and cranky side, and I’m forever puzzled why people believe the, seeming to me, dumb things that they choose to believe.
Terence McKenna
sometimes i wish i’d been an englishman; american life is so damned dumb and stupid and healthy
F. Scott Fitzgerald
This team is one execution away from being a very good basketball team.
Doc Rivers
Young and dumb is something you gotta go through, but you’ve got to be a student.
Too Short
The reason we call that pitch up and in is because the arms are attached to the shoulder.
Tim McCarver
I understood something way back when I was on ‘Three’s Company.’ When I got the part, I was flat broke. I was so happy to get the part, but I kept thinking, ‘Ugh – dumb blondes are so irritating; how do I make her likable?’ I think that I achieved that. It took a while for people to realize I was acting.
Suzanne Somers
You don’t have to dumb down – you just have to find a clever, good, secure man. I’ve found a couple – I’ve been lucky – but it’s probably hard for everybody to find that true love of a good man.
Kimora Lee Simmons
There is always a place I can take someone’s curiosity and land where they end up enlightened when we’re done. That’s my challenge as an educator. No one is dumb who is curious. The people who don’t ask questions remain clueless throughout their lives.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
They just kept grinning at me from over the stupid sign, Dopey because he’s too dumb to know any better, Doc because – well, I guess because he might have been glad to see me. Doc’s weird that way. Sleepy, the oldest, just stood there, looking … well, sleepy.
Meg Cabot
Wasn’t Winston Churchill the first black president of America? There’s a statue of him near me… that’s black.
Danielle O’Hara
CALVIN: When I grow up I want to be an inventor. First I will invent a time machine. Then I’ll come back to yesterday and take myself to tomorrow and skip this dumb assignment.
Bill Watterson
Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.
George W. Bush
We have a ‘bad movie’ club, and we go to whatever dumb movie is playing in the local theater, then go and have some beers and dinner.
David Benioff
While I’m sure some millennials are concerned with the ethical issues involved in mining for diamonds, the main reason they steer clear of the gems is because, well, they’re a dumb investment.
Ana Kasparian
[Heihei] a really dumb rooster. You have to just turn the rooster so his head ends up hitting the grain. He’s not smart enough to eat.
Alan Tudyk
A great ancient poet was blind. A great classical composer was deaf. Many of us are dumb. What have we to show for it?
Vera Nazarian
I don’t believe in elitism. I don’t think the audience is this dumb person lower than me. I am the audience.
Quentin Tarantino
How wide are the horizons of the spinning earth! The moonlight leads the tides and the sun’s light will not be confined within the net of heaven. But in the end all things return to the One. The deaf and the dumb, the crippled and deformed are all restored to One’s perfection.
Hsu Yun
You know, I think British comedy is very smart comedy. You don’t get too much dumb comedy over here. Or at least I haven’t seen it. If I’m wrong about that, I apologize to all the dumb comedy makers over here.
Matt LeBlanc
I’ve had my heart broken and then gone out and done dumb things.
Randy Houser
I didn’t mind being thought of as dumb. I knew I wasn’t.
Marilyn Monroe
Current Catholic worship often ignores the essential connection between truth and beauty, body and soul, at the center of the Catholic worldview. The Church requires that we be faithful, but must we also be deaf, dumb, and blind? I deserve to suffer for my sins, but must so much of that punishment take place in church?
Dana Gioia
I don’t want to speak for my movies; you could say my movies are just completely silly and dumb, but in the case of ‘Idiocracy’ and ‘Borat,’ without a doubt there is a really subversive and sophisticated assault on American culture.
Adam McKay
When I was making ‘Bourne Identity,’ I wasn’t making a dumb action movie like they were expecting it to be.
Doug Liman
Hi! handsome hunting man Fire your little gun. Bang! Now the animal is dead and dumb and done. Nevermore to peep again, creep again, leap again, Eat or sleep or drink again. Oh, what fun!
Walter de La Mare
There’s no need to put a dumb picture of us on the album cover. We always look at ourselves and think, ‘Wow, we look like idiots.’ We’d rather have a piece of art on there.
Matthew Ramsey
I love to write songs, but they don’t come easy to me – I spend a lot of time writing really dumb stuff that I have to look at the next day and think, ‘God, what was I thinking?’ That’s my process, is just to go through a lot of dumb stuff and hope that, after a lot of hard work, I’ll find a good idea.
Michael McDonald
When sharing your ideas, overconfidence is a killer. You don’t want your male coworkers to think you’re getting all uppity. Instead, downplay your ideas as just ‘thinking out loud,’ ‘throwing something out there,’ or sharing something ‘dumb,’ ‘random,’ or ‘crazy.’
Sarah Cooper
One cold wintry day in London, I was dreaming about salad nicoise—one of my favorites.
Gwyneth Paltrow
It’s actually smarter to make a dumb film.
James Wan
There are no dumb questions?only dumb answers.
Marshall Loeb
No show would be successful if you took a group of people and just said, ‘You’re dumb!’ over and over. That’s not what Broadway’s about.
Trey Parker
These days I find myself wanting to avoid being pigeon-holed, ghettoized, held in a different category than other authors. And when people ask me if I’m a black writer, or just a writer who happens to be black, I tend to say that it’s either a dumb question or a question which happens to be dumb.
Colson Whitehead
The inside of a computer is as dumb as hell but it goes like mad!
Richard P. Feynman
It’s human nature to not say everything that’s on your mind at the time you think it. Because we fear saying something that people will laugh at, people will think is dumb. We’re afraid of being embarrassed.
Taylor Swift
We left our homes and moved to Nashville as teenagers, and suddenly, we were on our own. We knew all we wanted to do in the world was write and sing… and the only way that would happen would be to jump, but you still get scared or sure you’ve done a dumb thing.
Maddie Marlow
Your work gets destroyed by dumb people and it gets enhanced by smart people and it really doesn’t have anything to do with marketing.
Paula Scher
We know what totalitarian looks like, we know what oppression looks like, we know what the dumb culture of totalitarianism smells like. This is it! It’s happening now, and the future of the world is being decided. So, get out there, make your own sites, take action!
Alex Jones
I’m like, If you do something dumb, I’ll write about it. If you put something out there, to me it’s like you’re kind of asking for it.
Wanda Sykes
I’m really tall, and I used slouch and think it was really uncool to stand up straight – now I wish I hadn’t been quite so dumb!
Sarah Parish
The force that through the green fuse drives the flower Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees Is my destroyer. And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose My youth is bend by the same wintry fever.
Dylan Thomas
The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation’s history. I mean in this century’s history. But we all lived in this century. I didn’t live in this century.
Dan Quayle
A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls.
Al Gore
Passions are liken’d best to floods and streams:
The shallow murmur, but the deep are dumb;
So, when affection yields discourse, it seems
The bottom is but shallow whence they come.
They that are rich in words, in words discover
Walter Raleigh
To have your niece die in your arms is the greatest gift from god.
Celine Dion
When you think about the complexity of our natural world – plants using quantum mechanics for photosynthesis, for example – a smartphone begins to look like a pretty dumb object.
Jeff VanderMeer
With the Democrats, they see themselves, we see ourselves as the party of the working folks, the striving, you know, the good. But, without anybody acknowledging it, there is now this little camp of folks who come across as very elitist, that look down on red state voters, who think that Republicans are dumb people.
Van Jones
People are dumb and they think that laughing equals cosigning a belief in the ideology, which it doesn’t.
Jim Norton
I’m not dumb enough to call up a bad player.
Though the male can be noble in reason and infinite in faculties, he is also easily amused by shiny toys, especially ones that do dumb things on his desk.
Patricia Marx
Some days I feel like everyone in my world has plugged themselves into my kidneys. I’m so tired.
Gwyneth Paltrow
The fine emotions whence our lives we mold
Lie in the earthly tumult dumb and cold.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
When I think over what I have said, I envy dumb people.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Where my comedy really solidified was when Bush was elected. I couldn’t understand how craven and crass he was, and how dumb other people were for electing him.
David Cross
Being young and dumb, honestly, you pick up some bad habits.
Marc Gasol
Wherever I have gone in this country, I have found Americans.
Alf Landon
We have Democrats saying dumb things every single day, and Republicans as well.
Emanuel Cleaver
I’m really, really dumb about describing wine, but I like wine that’s full-bodied and dry.
Esai Morales
I like animal sidekicks. They seem to be a pretty cool trope of post-apocalyptic fiction – just because if you’re going to have this lone protagonist, they’re going to need someone to talk to. Dogs are overused, and cats are dumb. So that leaves monkeys.
Brian K. Vaughan
I have been primarily interested in how and why ordinary people do unusual things, things that seem alien to their natures. Why do good people sometimes act evil? Why do smart people sometimes do dumb or irrational things?
Philip Zimbardo
So it has come, the day of testing. Without warning, without fanfare, it is here, and he is in the middle of it. In his chest his heart hammers so hard that it too, in its dumb way, must know. How will they stand up to the testing, he and his heart?
J. M. Coetzee
Articulate words are a harsh clamor and dissonance. When man arrives at his highest perfection, he will again be dumb.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn’t have a clue than there were Republicans.
James Carville
If they didn’t have an Oscar for people to shoot for, all they’d do is be making ‘Dumb And Dumber’ again and again.
Robert Osborne
Politics right now is in a very dark place, and I think the only place for me is to do what I do – make films, create art, watch it as it evolves. Right now it’s like Humpty Dumpty sitting on a wall, and a great fall is happening. The behavior seems to be really dumb.
Robert Redford
I Play When I Want to Play.
Randy Moss
Because you see darling, darling, there are no false questions. All questions in life are true questions. Answers may be false, but questions cannot be false. Sure,they can be dumb, they can be stupid, but never false.
Raymond Federman
The next time you’re caught in a room full of smart people doing something dumb (like trying to anticipate what your users will do), tune them out, flip open your laptop, and start prototyping.
Daniel Burka
I bought a company in the mid-90s called Dexter Shoe and paid $400 million for it. And it went to zero. And I gave about $400 million worth of Berkshire stock, which is probably now worth $400 billion. But I’ve made lots of dumb decisions. That’s part of the game.
Warren Buffett
You see a lot of smart guys with dumb women, but you hardly ever see a smart woman with a dumb guy.
Erica Jong
Nature gives liberty even to dumb animals.
While I was in college, I became a page at ABC. Suddenly I was working for Good Morning America, local news, national news. The page is the lowest rung of the ladder, and it’s the also the place where you can ask any question and not feel dumb.
Anne Sweeney
To all that is used-up, and to all the muffled and dumb creatures in the world’s full reserve, the unsayable sums, joyfully add yourself, and cancel the count.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Latinos are very passionate, and they perform a lot, and look at me, I’m talking with my hands, and this is just my normal self, so it kind of allows me to be who I am and not dumb it down.
Genesis Rodriguez
As you get older you realize your parents don’t look so dumb – and that you’re not as smart as you thought you were.
Paul Reiser
If you have the opportunities of Berkshire, an investment in gold is dumb.
Charlie Munger
I am Michael Render – that’s what my mom named me. ‘Killer Mike’ is what my dumb friends called me in a rap battle once, and it stuck.
Killer Mike
There are dumb actors. But there are dumb politicians and dumb bakers.
Tim Robbins
Metal musicians say dumb things sometimes.
Rob Halford
I went to an all-girls pre school where everyone went off to Harvard or Yale, and I had zero interest in doing so. I think they thought I was on drugs. There was a neighboring all-boys school, so we’d get together and do dumb things. It was your typical Catholic-American upbringing.
Katherine Moennig
My closest friends are the ones who tell me that I’m being dumb or that I’m being wrong.
Cole Sprouse
I wish I’d done ‘Dumb and Dumber.’ I was offered the part, but I don’t think I’d have been better than Jeff Daniels was. Another film I wish I’d done was ‘Jerry Maguire.’
Woody Harrelson
Most people know nothing about learning; many despise it. Dummies reject as too hard whatever is not dumb.
Thomas More
Jerry Ford is so dumb he can’t walk and chew gum at the same time…. He’s a nice fellow, but he spent too much time playing football without a helmet.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Natural gas is hemispheric; I like to call it hemispheric in nature, because it is a product that we can find in our neighborhoods.
George W. Bush
TV deals in very broad strokes. Like, ‘Oh, that’s my dumb friend’, or, ‘That’s my funny friend.’ A true best friend, a sidekick, has to be a little deeper then that. You have to feel like there’s nothing either character won’t do. That someone really, really has their back.
Willie Garson
Cookbooks have all become baroque and very predictable. I’m looking for something different. A lot of chefs’ cookbooks are food as it’s done in the restaurants, but they are dumbed down, and I hate it when they dumb them down.
Mario Batali
In the media’s eyes Bannon made Trump. Trump is too dumb to have made himself. Trump is too rough around the edges. Trump is not a deep enough thinker, and he’s not nearly a brilliant strategist. Trump couldn’t have gotten himself elected. That’s what they all think. Bannon did that.
Rush Limbaugh
In fact, I was too dumb to save any of the old comic books or the old artwork. I used to give them away.
Stan Lee
I think there’s a difference between ditzy and dumb. Dumb is just not knowing. Ditzy is having the courage to ask!
Jessica Simpson
Every blade of grass is a blade of grace, a grace note in God’s single Song. Nature is not blind and dumb. Nature is eloquent. Human science is blind and dumb if it does not hear this eloquence.
Peter Kreeft
What’s Walmart, do they sell like wall stuff?
Paris Hilton
TRUTHFUL, adj. Dumb and illiterate.
Ambrose Bierce
I don’t know about a lot of things. I read a lot, but a lot of it just passes through me. I don’t retain much. I am kind of dumb that way. Or maybe ‘I am a simple man,’ is a better way to say it.
Bill Callahan
I had no idea what to expect moving to New York. It’s embarrassing to say, but I didn’t even realize that people bought contemporary art… that people actually paid for it… I know that’s really dumb. I was really naive. I had no idea artists made money.
Wade Guyton
As hideous and dumb as it sounds, I wouldn’t be at all surprised by an invasion of Iraq on September II. I’ll take a long shot bet on that.
Hunter S. Thompson
There’s a portion of the movie where something bad happens to me, and I lose my clothes along the way, so essentially I’m wearing a bra and trousers. There are certain requirements, but luckily I have a good base because I work out often.
Gwyneth Paltrow
Too clever is dumb.
Ogden Nash
I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up.
Rod Blagojevich
The idea that bigger haystacks have more needles in them is dumb on its face
Cory Doctorow
Victory is a fleeting thing in the gambling business. Today’s winners are tomorrow’s blinking toads, dumb beasts with no hope.
Hunter S. Thompson
Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.
Lord Kelvin
One man alone can be pretty dumb sometimes, but for real bona fide stupidity, there ain’t nothing can beat teamwork.
Edward Abbey
Don’t text or twitter during the show. Just live your life. Don’t keep telling people what you’re doing. Just, because also – also – it lights up your big dumb face.
Louis C. K.
As artists, we are so not in control most of the time of the content or the narrative of our characters, and sometimes writing takes a turn and it’s not something we necessarily have control over. It’s just a lot of random dumb luck, so when things click, you’ve just got to enjoy it.
Mike Colter
The way that we make dumb decisions and discriminatory decisions is by employing stereotypes about groups of people. We don’t see people as fully human when other people speak for them.
Rachel Maddow
No civilization is complete which does not include the dumb and defenseless of God’s creatures within the sphere of charity and mercy.
Queen Victoria
[Mikhail] Gorbachev complained. He was told look, there’s nothing on paper. People didn’t actually say it but the implication was look, if you are dumb enough to take faith in a gentleman’s agreement with us, that’s your problem. NATO expanded to East Germany.
Noam Chomsky
Women, you need to understand something. Men are not as dumb as you think they are.
Paul Washer
If you put it on the table as a bargaining chip, it becomes a bargaining chip
Ronald Reagan
My sister’s expecting a baby, and I don’t know if I’m going to be an uncle or an aunt.
Chuck Nevitt
As a businessman, Sunil Shetty is dumb. His image as a ‘businessman’ is what his partners should have. They deserve all the credit.
Suniel Shetty
Democrats are dumb and Republicans are stupid, but the difference between dumb and stupid is dumb isn’t funny. Dumb is when you say something and the whole room goes, ‘What did he say?’
Lewis Black
I have this creative mind where I can create a lot of different things, but a lot of people never really gave me the chance and opportunity to do that because when they see me, they just see this dumb fighter that fights in the cage and howls like a wolf and knocks people out.
Quinton Jackson
Most movies, once the action starts there’s no more characters. You say a couple of dumb lines and then there’s just explosions until the end.
John Cusack
I don’t know what makes you so dumb but it really works.
Russell Lynes
If I could be doing anything, I’d be laying on the floor in my birthday suit eating junk food and watching something dumb on TV.
Anita Baker
It just requires so much of you, and most of the time you feel dumb.
Salman Rushdie
I don’t want to write melodies anymore. I can only write really simple, dumb caveman melodies.
Derek E. Miller
As for rosemary, I let it run all over my garden walls, not only because my bees love it but because it is the herb sacred to remembrance and to friendship, whence a sprig of it hath a dumb language.
Thomas More
I thought no more was needed
Youth to prolong
Than dumb-bell and foil
To keep the body young.
O who could have foretold
That the heart grows old?
William Butler Yeats
I think if you’re watching ‘Dumb and Dumber,’ I don’t know whether you need to buy the Blu-ray of a comedy or something like that. But if you’re watching ‘Event Horizon,’ ‘Death Race,’ ‘Alien vs. Predator’ I mean, I think these movies are definitely enhanced by the Blu-ray experience.
Paul W. S. Anderson
Bruce Sutter has been around for awhile and he’s pretty old. He’s thirty-five years old. That will give you some idea of how old he is.
Ron Fairly
We know that no one person can succeed unless everybody else succeeds.
Howard Dean
People are just dumb. They misunderstand.
Garry Winogrand
For it would have been better that man should have been born dumb, nay, void of all reason, rather than that he should employ the gifts of Providence to the destruction of his neighbor.
By god, DH Lawrence was right when he said there must be a dumb, dark, dull, bitter belly-tension between a man and a woman, and how else could this be achieved save in the long monotony of marriage?
Stella Gibbons
Heaven is dumb, echoing only the dumb.
Franz Kafka
More than anything else, we need in this society the opportunity for people to tell us what they think without being told that they’re either dumb, or stupid, or uninformed.
Brian Lamb
The kings of modern thought are dumb.
Matthew Arnold
Roy Oswalt is a drop and drive pitcher. What is a drop and drive pitcher? He is a guy who drops and drives. Very simple.
Tim McCarver
It’s like an Alcatraz around my neck
Thomas Menino
Did you write the words, or the lyrics?
Bruce Forsyth
I have a soft spot for Joe Biden. I like him. But he’s dumb as an ashtray.
Roger Ailes
Rappers can’t sleep, need sleepin’,
B.I.G. keep creepin’,
Bullets heat-seekin’,
Casualties need treatin’,
Dumb rappers need teachin’.
The Notorious B.I.G.
My grade point average went from a 2.2 to a 4.0 over the summer. I wanted to get straight A’s. I decided to get straight A’s. I didn’t want people to think I was dumb. And when you get straight A’s once, its easier.
Bill Gates
There is the dumb silence of slumber or apathy… the fertile silence of awareness, pasturing the soul… the silence of peaceful accord with other persons or communion with the cosmos.
Paul Goodman
My job is a decision-making job, and as a result, I make a lot of decisions.
George W. Bush
I know how hard it is for you to put food on your family.
George W. Bush
No one will need more than 637Kb of memory for a personal computer
Bill Gates
I’ve produced things myself, I was like telling the producers how to do the show. They really didn’t appreciate that, they just wanted a dumb rocker on the show and they got some guy telling them how to do their job. So being too smart can get in the way.
Dee Snider
If you go back to ‘Louie Louie,’ there’s the whole element there, where you need to be able to appreciate what ‘dumb’ is in its profoundness.
Lindsey Buckingham
Choices always were a problem for you. What you need is someone strong to guide you. Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow, what you need is someone strong to use you – like me.
Maynard James Keenan
Like a real dumb idiot, I believed that to avoid a grenade that drops in the water, you could just jump in the water, and you’d be fine.
Sam Richardson
I’m the commander — see, I don’t need to explain — I do not need to explain why I say things. That’s the interesting thing about being president.
George W. Bush
I’m just glad it’ll be Clark Gable who’s falling on his face and not Gary Cooper.
Gary Cooper
There was a time when I just loved ‘Indiana Jones’ so much. I was in fourth or fifth grade, and I wore a fedora like that one to school every day. It was so dumb.
Jon Watts
For the people who don’t know, my character could described, in a nutshell, as the bar dumb-dumb.
Charlie Day
It is a bad sign when a new-born babe has not lungs enough to make itself heard over the whole house. It is equally a bad symptom when the new convert is born dumb, and cannot find his voice to praise God audibly.
Theodore L. Cuyler
The advantage of wisdom is that you can play dumb. The opposite is more difficult.
Kurt Tucholsky
I’ve always felt like I’m on the outside. I think certain people judge you right away, and I’ve always been acutely sensitive to that. I’m fighting, whether it’s accurate or not, a perception that I get of people thinking I’m dumb.
Bobby Cannavale
The present custom of orthodox Christendom, in packing their sins upon the back of a God, is just the same substantially as that of various heathen nations who were anciently in the habit of packing them upon the backs of various dumb animals.
Kersey Graves
In shooting, you need to be dumb.
Abhinav Bindra
I just want you to know that, when we talk about war, we’re really talking about peace.
George W. Bush
I do not own a cellphone; I do not use a cellphone. I do not have a phone. No. Phone. Not even an old-fashioned dumb one. Nothing.
Steve Hilton
One of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror.
George W. Bush
The modern model of misogyny has to do with marginalizing people who are sexual and thinking of them as dumb, or not serious, or not cool or tweedy enough to take seriously, for fear of seeming like one of the guys from ‘Jersey Shore.’ The sex is so much more present in sexism than, I think, ever before.
Julie Klausner
Passion is born deaf and dumb.
Honore de Balzac
Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country.
Marion Barry
I’ve always loved The Simpsons, just because it was really, really funny. As a kid, you love the characters. You know that the dad is dumb and frustrated, and you know that the boy is smarter than everyone else around him and is constantly getting into mischief.
Alex Hirsch
When I’m a blonde, I can say the world is purple, and they’ll believe me because they weren’t listening to me.
Kylie Bax
The only qualifications for a lineman are to be big and dumb. To be a back, you only have to be dumb.
Knute Rockne
A week is a long time in politics, and three weeks is twice as long.
Rosie Barnes
I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.
Barack Obama
I’m like a fatter version of Amy Winehouse and a skinnier version of Lily Allen.
Katy Perry
Beyond [known peoples of black West Africa] to the south there is no civilization in the proper sense. There are only humans who are closer to dumb animals than to rational beings. They live in thickets and caves, and eat herbs and unprepared grain. They frequently eat each other. They cannot be considered human beings.
Ibn Khaldun
Don’t be bitter and mean ‘couse you don’t fit in, it’s a GIFT. Look at you. you’ve got your individuality, you don’t have the herd instinct, you can read Neitzsche and understand it. Only dumb people are happy.
Courtney Love
I did a terrible television pilot that was so badly written and dumb that it became a turning point for me and I decided that I would never accept a job just because I needed the money.
Fran Drescher
The Bible never says anything about dinosaurs. You can’t say there were dinosaurs when you never saw them. Somebody actually saw Adam and Eve. No one ever saw a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Carl Everett
The doctrine of thrift for the poor is dumb and cruel, like advising them to try and lift themselves by their bootstraps.
Norman Thomas
The doctors x-rayed my head and found nothing.
Dizzy Dean
There’s trade, there’s sensible trade, and there’s dumb trade.
Wilbur Ross
Intelligence is sexy. Don’t play dumb, especially young girls. Don’t play dumb. And let people see that you are intelligent.

Walt Whitman

Maxine Waters
We’ve got to pause and ask ourselves: How much clean air do we need?
Lee Iacocca

Lawrence O’Donnell
I felt like one of Apollo’s sacred cows- slow, dumb, and bright red.
Rick Riordan
Such a courageous boy I was. To act brazenly under scrutiny and risk further injury to my wounded heart. Ah, the resilience, the blind, dumb persistence of youth.
Meg Rosoff
I’m from Hollywood, I’m too dumb to be nervous about New York.
Yvonne De Carlo
Remember that you can do anything you want to do. Don’t let anyone say, ‘You’re not smart enough… it’s too hard… it’s a dumb idea… no one has done that before… girls don’t do that.’ My mom gave me that advice in 1973. And it allowed me to never worry about what others were saying about my career direction.
Meg Whitman
I don’t want to dumb anything down, and I think people appreciate that. Even if it’s not their cup of tea.
James Jebbia
So many shows out there dumb-down the country. It’s so admirable to be part of a show that wants people to think.
David Krumholtz
You can do anything when you’re famous. That’s why famous people are so dumb.
Jarvis Cocker
You got a man? That’s somethin we will talk about.
He’s smart enough to have ya, but dumb enough to let ya out.

Now, they’re saying I groped a male staffer. Yes, I did. Not only did I grope him, I tickled him until he couldn’t breathe and four guys jumped on top of me. It was my 50th birthday.
Eric Massa
At the finish, it was all over
Jim Watt
Politicians are dumb, but they can count to 50% plus one.
Will Rogers
Whether it’s food or women, the ones on front street are supermodels. Big hair, big tits, big trouble, but the one you come home to is probably something like cavatelli and red sauce. She’s not screaming for attention because she knows she’s good enough even if your dumb ass hasn’t figured it out yet.
Eddie Huang
On Hallowe’en the old ghosts come about us, and they speak to some; to others they are dumb.
Eleanor Farjeon
The same old dumb teachers teaching the same old dumb subjects in the same old dumb school. I seem to be kind of losing interest in everything. At first I thought high school would be fun but it’s just dull. Everything’s dull. Maybe it’s because I’m growing up and life is becoming more blase.
Beatrice Sparks
When life is woe, and hope is dumb, the World says, “Go!” The Grave says, “Come!
Arthur Guiterman
For some reason as a kid being a smart athlete didn’t seem like the right thing, because you didn’t fit in. You didn’t want to be too smart because you’d be a nerd. But then you didn’t want to be too dumb either because then you didn’t get the grades you needed to play.
Martellus Bennett
I tend to hang out with my friends in Los Angeles from high school. We know each other from back in the day. They still see me as just dumb Tyra. We have a strong bond.
Tyra Banks
I’ll picture Rat Kiley face, his grief, and I’ll think, You dumb cooze. Because she wasn’t listening. It wasn’t a war story. It was a love story.
Tim O’Brien
Innocence is like a dumb leper who has lost his bell, wandering the world, meaning no harm.
Graham Greene
I miss being able to wake up when I want and go on stage when I want and pull down my pants when I want.
Mark Wahlberg
If I lived in Massachusetts, I’d try to vote ten times … Yeah that’s right, I’d cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. Because that’s exactly what they are.
Ed Schultz
I’d like to play a guy who doesn’t think so much. I’d like a character whose words come out before he thinks about it. I want a character who is just kind of dumb in that way. A guy who doesn’t have too many dangerous, devious ideas. It would be fun to play a role like that.
Wes Bentley
Half this game is 90 percent mental.
Danny Ozark
I suppose I arrived at my charitable commitment largely through guilt. I recognized early on that my good fortune was not due to superior personal character or initiative so much as it was to dumb luck.

Darwin’s theory is as dead as he is. Everyone is surviving, fit or not. Years ago, any kid dumb enough to chase a shiny object down a well was dead, and out of the gene pool. Now they got the technology and medicine to save the fool so he can breed more open mouth breathers.
Lenny Bruce

There were three kinds of evangelical leaders: The dumb or idealistic ones who really believed. The out-and-out charlatans. And the smart ones who still believed – sort of – but knew that the evangelical world was sh*t, but who couldn’t figure out any way to earn as good a living anywhere else.
Frank Schaeffer
I honor English majors. It’s a dumb thing to major in. It leads nowhere. It’s good to be dumb, it allows us to love something for no reason. That’s the best kind of love.
Natalie Goldberg
This habit of free speaking at ladies’ lunches has impaired society; it has doubtless led to many of the tragedies of divorce and marital unhappiness. Could society be deaf and dumb and Congress abolished for a season, what a happy and peaceful life one could lead!
M. E. W. Sherwood
I live in a dumb house. Which is not to say that I don’t love its quirky charm, its drafty windows and leaky fireplaces and an electrical system that protests when too many people are trying to vacuum and microwave at the same time. But charm is not always user-friendly.
Nancy Gibbs
How I wish we could all see the cost of our choices as clearly as a price tag on items in a store. If I know how much something is going to cost me, I make much wiser choices. But we have an enemy who schemes against us to keep the cost of dumb decisions concealed until it’s too late.

Alicia Silverstone
Cold prayers shall never have any warm answers. God will suit His returns to our requests. Lifeless, services shall have lifeless answers. When men are dull, God will be dumb.
Thomas Brooks

Barack Obama
It was a sobering experience.

Marian Keyes

Estelle Getty
I think egg boiling is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but I can make a tiramisu anytime you want.
Catherine Zeta-Jones
It’s just dumb that people think that. ‘Why did you help that guy up after you tackled him?’ Because I wanted to. What’s the big deal? ‘Butkus would have never done that.’ Well, I’m not Dick Butkus. I’m Brian Urlacher, and sometimes I help people up.
Brian Urlacher
I’m just a normal mother with the same struggles as any other mother who’s trying to do everything at once and trying to be a wife and maintain a relationship. There’s absolutely nothing perfect about my life, but I just try hard.

Dennis Rodman
I’ve never really taken myself seriously as an actor, It is surprising the amount of people who think I’m going to be really dumb. I think they think anyone who has done teen movies is just an idiot.

Wayne Static

Alfred North Whitehead

I try to write for highest common denominator. I don’t write for dumb people. I figure if everybody doesn’t get it, that’s OK. Someone bright enough will get it, and that’s who I write for. It’s probably not the way to make million-sellers. What can I say? I won’t apologize for trying to write for smart people.

Me personally, I think that when I take my time with something, it comes out a lot better, because I can really, really get my point across, and if I see that like, this might be a little too deep, I figure out a way to dumb it down so that everybody can understand where I’m going.
