Konnie Huq

I know too much about religion to be religious, so to speak, and I am not that stupid, either.
Varg Vikernes
It is quite easy for stupid people to be happy; they believe in fables, and they trot on in a beaten track like a horse on a tramway.
Ouida
I can’t tell if I want to be a rapper who’s funny because I kind of enjoy just doing really stupid songs about nothing. But I want to have a career that’s long-lasting, and I don’t think people want to listen to a straight-up comedy rapper all the time.
Awkwafina
[In the Universe it may be that] Primitive life is very common and intelligent life is fairly rare. Some would say it has yet to occur on Earth.
Stephen Hawking
Many wise words are spoken in jest, but they don’t compare with the number of stupid words spoken in earnest.
Sam Levenson
Stupid how the mind will try to distract itself.
Lauren Oliver
I enjoy being involved in making the artwork for albums and stupid stuff like that.
Frank Ocean
My best attribute is knowing when not to answer stupid questions
Gina Gershon
The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt. Even those of the intelligent who believe that they have a nostrum are too individualistic to combine with other intelligent men from whom they differ on minor points.
Bertrand Russell
There is no sin except stupidity.
Oscar Wilde
constituted a critical lapse in judgement and a personal failure on my part for which I am solely responsable
William J. Clinton
Simon-“From now on I will only adress people by nodding at them.” Clary-“That’s stupid why would you do that?” Simon-“Because it says that ‘I am a badass, and I recognive that you too, are a badass
Cassandra Clare
Every journalist who is not too stupid or too full of himself to notice what is going on knows that what he does is morally indefensible. He is a kind of confidence man, preying on people’s vanity, ignorance or loneliness, gaining their trust and betraying them without remorse.
Janet Malcolm
The birth of a man is the birth of his sorrow. The longer he lives, the more stupid he becomes, because his anxiety to avoid unavoidable death becomes more and more acute. What bitterness! He lives for what is always out of reach! His thirst for survival in the future makes him incapable of living in the present.
Zhuangzi
Evil isn’t the real threat to the world. Stupid is just as destructive as Evil, maybe more so, and it’s a hell of a lot more common. What we really need is a crusade against Stupid. That might actually make a difference.
Jim Butcher
Whenever I did anything wrong, stupid or hard-hearted, and I have done many things that were all three, my mother always said “it is because you were too much indulged.”
John Ruskin
The impenetrable stupidity of Prince George (son-in-law of James II) served his turn. It was his habit, when any news was told him, to exclaim, “Est il possible?”-“Is it possible?”
Thomas B. Macaulay
Violence is stupid. Even as a last resort, it only ever begets more of the same.
Brian K. Vaughan
Am I about to feel really, really stupid?
Adam Savage
Existence was not only absurd, it was plain hard work. Think of how many times you put on your underwear in a lifetime. It was appalling, it was disgusting, it was stupid.
Charles Bukowski
Can we agree there are no stupid questions? Probably not. But let’s try anyway.
Neil Macdonald
And now, in the interest of equal time, here is a message from the National
George Carlin
When I was doing theater in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s we weren’t allowed to film any of the shows that I did, it was against union rules. It was a stupid law, because so much is lost. We now have no record of these famous stage plays, so it turned out to be very narrow-minded thinking.
Debbie Reynolds
It’s not that I dislike many people. It’s just that I don’t like many people.
Bryant Gumbel
Fear can keep you alive. The trick is not to let it overwhelm you. Not to let it rule you. If you’re afraid, that’s the universe trying to tell you something. Get away. Don’t run; don’t panic. Just pick up and walk out, calm as you please. Panic makes you stupid.
Barry Lyga
I didn’t realize I was in a Buddhist temple.
Al Gore
At school where you a dunce or a teacher’s pet? All of the above. I was stupid so they thought I was cute.
Dave Grohl
Nobody looks stupid when they are having fun.
Amy Poehler
If you are always trying to do something great and different and fresh, lots of them are going to be shut down for lots of stupid or good reasons, but you have to keep on trying.
Lee Clow
It’s stupid to claim that one human being is special, or picked out by God, when in fact there are hundreds of millions of human beings in the world, and God knows how many millions of people long dead who have been lost to history, all of whom were probably special to someone.
Louis de Bernieres
Most songwriters who have been lucky enough to have their song on the radio or be heard widely don’t know anything about science. The best songs have a strong dose of metaphor. Most songs about science don’t have that. Like ‘She Blinded Me With Science.’ It’s a stupid song, no offense to Thomas Dolby.
Greg Graffin
I was asked once if I ever got tired of playing bimbos, and I answered that I’ve never played a bimbo. I’ve always played smart, manipulative women. Marilyn Monroe and Judy Holliday, who were not stupid, could play stupid really well, but I don’t do it well.
Morgan Fairchild
If there is a serious outbreak in the UK I doubt voters will risk a Labour government. Time to get serious… Look at Diane Abbott’s irresponsible comments on Ebola patients, Mili’s open border policy. No. Way.
Louise Mensch
Power is supposed to be so corrupt. I don’t think it’s so much corrupt, in the usual sense of the word, as stupid and unrealistic. The more power a person has, the further he gets from reality.
Jane Jacobs
Some people think having large breasts makes a woman stupid. Actually, it’s quite the opposite: a woman having large breasts makes men stupid.
Rita Rudner
You are literally too stupid to insult.
Ed Helms
It’s possible to fight intolerance, stupidity and fanaticism when they come separately. When you get all three together it’s probably wiser to get out, if only to preserve your sanity.
P. D. James
It sounds stupid, but there’s nothing like walking down the street and seeing a building that’s older than 100 years old. I think London – not to sound pretentious – like New York, it’s a big melting pot for all things and it’s just got this energy that you can’t find anywhere else.
Christian Cooke
Just for fun, I’m really goofy and I would love to do some stupid comedy. I’m talking, like, crazy, out there, Will Ferrell type of thing. I love it, I think those movies are so funny.
Jaimie Alexander
I’d been through crappy day jobs and stupid garage bands. I was determined to make it as a musician.
Paul Westerberg

It’s like the neighborhood I would have grown up in, I think, if I had have grown up here.
Alan Keyes
I started working at Hanna-Barbera in ’92 on 2 Stupid Dogs.

Robbie Coltraine
Drink coffee! Do stupid things faster and with more energy!
Darynda Jones
Those who don’t heed the warnings don’t live to admit they were stupid not to do so.
Amy Tan
In today’s life, the world belongs only to the stupid, the insensitive and the agitated. The right to live and triumph is now conquered almost by the same means by which you conquer internment in an asylum: the inability to think, amorality and hiperexcitation.
Fernando Pessoa
Is there such a thing as a man-made stroke? In other words, did someone do this to (Democratic Senator Tim Johnson)? …I know what this [Republican] party is capable of.
Joy Behar
You don’t have to tell me everything right away, but I have to tell you everything right away? Can’t you see how stupid that is?
Veronica Roth
Timothy McVeigh was a coward. Violence is the stupid way out. It’ll discredit any real legitmate movement.
Glenn Beck
I’m old, I’m young, I’m intelligent, I’m stupid. My tide goes in and out.
Warren Beatty
America is a hurricane, and the only people who do not hear the sound are those fortunate if incredibly stupid and smug White Protestants who live in the center, in the serene eye of the big wind.
Norman Mailer
For awhile, I got stupid about only wanting a leading-man role, but I have no illusions. I know I’m not Brad Pitt.
Breckin Meyer
Among many reasons for being stupid it may be urged, it is being like other people, and living like one’s neighbours, and indeed without it, it may be difficult to love some neighbours as oneself: now seeing the necessity of being dull, you won’t, I hope, take it amiss that you find me so.
Elizabeth Montagu
Politics is the skilled use of blunt objects.
Lester B. Pearson
Dying in the line of duty is heroic, but dying while unemployed is just stupid.
Tsugumi Ohba
We find it hard to believe that other people’s thoughts are as silly as our own, but they probably are.
James Harvey Robinson
I’m not stupid!” In Bean’s experience, that was a sentence never uttered except to prove its own inaccuracy.
Orson Scott Card
Stop!” Narcissus got to his feet. “This is not right! This person is obviously not awesome, so he must be…” He struggled for the right words. It had probably been a long time since he’d talked about anything other than himself. “He must be tricking us.” Apparently Narcissus wasn’t completely stupid.
Rick Riordan
To learn bad dialogue is so difficult and so boring, and to work with a stupid director who tells you to do the wrong thing, etcetera, it’s just unbearable.
Omar Sharif
About the use of language: it is impossible to sharpen a pencil with a blunt axe. It is equally vain to try to do it with ten blunt axes instead.
Edsger Dijkstra
What if it lines up like it did in the Trojan War … Athena versus Poseidon?” “I don’t know. But I just know that I’ll be fighting next to you.” “Why?” “Because you’re my friend, Seaweed Brain. Any more stupid questions?
Rick Riordan
When I started out as a 12-13 year old, it was a stupid idea. I remember when I went to try to get coached by Heinz Reinkemeier and my coach Gaby, when I went and met them, India was nowhere in shooting. They said, ‘you want to win a gold at the Olympics? Why don’t you ride an elephant back home?’
Abhinav Bindra
I.Q. deficiency. There are some people who are an order of fries short of a Happy Meal, and what is often a characteristic about every one of these people is that they don’t know it. They have no idea how incompetent or stupid they are. It’s the exact opposite. They have the loftiest, highest self-image.
Rush Limbaugh
Left to themselves people are noble, generous, uncorrupted, they’d create a completely new kind of society if only people weren’t so blind, stupid and selfish.
Tom Stoppard
I did throw a lot of eggs into one basket, as you do in your teenage years – ‘I am buying these records, I am wearing this’. I did quite a bit of that. You have to do it, wear your stupid shoes, wear your stupid hair.
Dylan Moran
All the other children at my school are stupid. Except I’m not meant to call them stupid, even though this is what they are.
Mark Haddon
Property is theft. Nobody “owns” anything. When you die, it all stays here.
George Carlin
Almost any difficulty will move in the face of honesty. When I am honest I never feel stupid. And when I am honest I am automatically humble.
Hugh Prather
When happiness points in one direction while wisdom, truth, integrity, and common sense point in another, that’s when really smart people start doing really stupid things.
Andy Stanley
I have done stupid with a lot of zeros on the end of it. I know what it looks like.
Dave Ramsey
I try and be as stupid as possible regarding my profession, which means I try to look at as few design magazines as possible.
Ettore Sottsass
You have to believe in God before you can say there are things that man was not meant to know. I don’t think there’s anything man wasn’t meant to know. There are just some stupid things that people shouldn’t do.
David Cronenberg
When I was a senior, I ran for class president. And I lost. One of my opponents even told me I was “really stupid” if I thought a girl could be elected president.
Hillary Clinton
I mean how do you know what you’re going to do till you do it? The answer is, you don’t. I think I am, but how do I know? I swear it’s a stupid question.
J. D. Salinger
The most stupid mistake a counter-insurgency operation can make is alienating the population. If you alienate the population, you’re finished.
Meles Zenawi
[the Ghost Team] is an ensemble comedy. It’s about people who are searching for meaning in their lives, and they end up doing this stupid thing after they’re inspired by one another.
David Krumholtz
The “Powers That Be” are not smart enough to engineer Armageddon, but they may yet be stupid enough. If governments are involved in covering up the knowledge of aliens, then they are doing a much better job of it than they seem to do at anything else.
Stephen Hawking
Liberals are always proposing perfectly insane ideas, laws that will make everybody happy, laws that will make everything right, make us live forever, and all be rich. Conservatives are never that stupid.
P. J. O’Rourke
Everybody knows that I have tougher ethics rules than any previous President.
William J. Clinton
If Adam was stupid about his pride, Gansey was stupid about Adam.

Barack Obama
Be straight with yourself just to maybe save a few more people from being stupid and being ignorant.
George Harrison
I just think that people take me a little more seriously as a brunette. I don’t know if that’s just because of a societal preconceived notion that all blondes are stupid, but it’s a different kind of attitude.
Kate Bosworth
There’s been so many different types of musicals, and it’s a funny genre because there’s a fine line between clever and stupid. It really takes a genius to know how to do it.
Melissa Etheridge
And you chose to fight for Artemis instead, what kind of stupid are you? (Jeff)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
‘The Real World’ is the most predictable arc ever. They get on the show, they’re all excited, we’re gonna be best friends, then people start drinking and get hammered, and say stupid stuff, and that’s pretty much it.
Adam McKay
Do every stupid thing that makes you feel alive.
John Darnielle
You know when people are stupid, it frustrates me.
Julia Roberts
We thought all this teaching was to make us smart. What it did was make us stupid. With all the little facts we learned, we never had the time to think.
Chuck Palahniuk
To be stupid and selfish and to have good health are the three requirements for happiness. Though if stupidity is lacking, the others are useless.
Stefan Sagmeister
If you’re stupid enough to whiff, you should be smart enough to forget it.
Arnold Palmer
I became the storyteller of South Side Chicago. I used an old Kiwi liquid shoe polish as a microphone. I’d go around the house interviewing everybody, telling stupid jokes, doing voices. I mimicked Sidney Poitier, Sammy Davis Jr., people on ‘Laugh-In,’ Flip Wilson.
Bernie Mac
This cures everything except stupidity, which is an epidemic on the rise.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
I’ve always wondered, what am I going to do that’s important with these stupid jokes that I tell.
Ray Romano
I start to feel like I can’t maintain the facade any longer, that I may just start to show through. And I wish I knew what was wrong. Maybe something about how stupid my whole life is.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision.
Bertrand Russell
Talking and eloquence are not the same: to speak and to speak well are two things. A fool may talk, but a wise man speaks.
Heinrich Heine
I’m not stupid, I realise selling it is not as important as it used to be that way, I think it’s more important to get your music out there and if people want to hear it an mp3 form or whatever I’m fine with that, I just don’t enjoy the sound of it at home for personal taste.
Butch Walker
Who am I to stop everybody just to tell my stupid story? It’s presumptuous.
Brendan Benson
As you get older, you don’t really have any excuse to be stupid anymore, to be in the dark.
Deryck Whibley
Too many whites are getting away with drug use… Too many whites are getting away with drug sales… The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too.
Rush Limbaugh
Dubh is do?” I was incredulous. It was no wonder I hadn’t been able to find the stupid word. “Should I be calling pubs poos?” “Dubh is Gaelic, Ms. Lane. Pub is not.
Karen Marie Moning
Fear and realisation of ignorance, strong medicines against stupid pride.
Garth Nix
The education of young people is narrowing. They cannot have the scope they used to have. They are being taught in high school by people earnest, still, but maybe less well-prepared than we would want them to be – but not because they are stupid or churlish.
Frederick Busch
I’m rarely in a situation where, if you have a good idea, it’s not embraced. That’s stupid. And I don’t work with stupid people.
Richard Gere
Stupidity is a talent for misconception.
Edgar Allan Poe
To a new generation of butterflies, hopefully less stupid than last. Maybe they were burgeoning even now in fat little cocoons. Or maybe not.
Laini Taylor
I feared Sarah was one of those women who instead of laughing said, “That’s funny,” or instead of smiling said, “That’s interesting,” or instead of saying, “You are a stupid blithering idiot,” said, “Well I think it’s a little more complicated than that.
Lorrie Moore
I felt like the blonde in every horror movie who hears a noise in the basement and goes to investigate alone. Sometimes you smell the stupid all around you, but you step in it anyway.
Ann Aguirre
General reader feedback is usually pretty worthless. 99% of people give feedback that is irrelevant, stupid, or just flat out wrong. But that 1% of people who give good feedback are invaluable.
Tucker Max
Advice in old age is foolish; for what can be more absurd than to increase our provisions for the road the nearer we approach to our journey’s end.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Sheep are stupid, and have to be driven. But goats are intelligent, and need to be led.
Terry Pratchett
I mean people up here aren’t stupid, I’m lower gene pool and I kind of sit in amazement at watching some of them because they are pretty damn smart.
Doug Ose
I realized that even I have weird intimacy issues with humans – like, I need my friendships to get deeper, I need to be locked in, I need to remember people’s names. I know this sounds really stupid, but I just need to be more present in my life.
Jen Kirkman
I tell you what. 85 percent of the sportswriters think I’m stupid or a clown or something. They think I’m crazy.
Joaquin Andujar
Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I’m not there, I go to work.
Robert Orben
…the greatest weapon against big stupid men was a sharp mind.
Melina Marchetta
I’m not a very serious person. You know how they say that clowns are very funny in public and are really sad at home? I’m really kind of stupid at home and more serious in public.
Roland Joffe
I am not a philosopher, only frustrated by the development of the world we live in – and too stupid to keep my mouth shut when I see injustice.
Varg Vikernes
A clever woman often compromises her husband; a stupid woman only compromises herself.

I’m very scared of water. When you don’t see the water… I imagine monsters – stupid things.
Eva Green
I think we are all of us a pretty milky lot, without tea-table convictions and our radicalism that keeps so consistently within the bounds of decorum . . . .I’d like to annihilate these stupid colleges of ours . . . instillers of stodginess.
John Dos Passos
When you see a blonde with great tits and a great ass, you say to yourself, ‘Hey, she must be stupid or must have nothing else to offer’, which maybe is the case many times. But then again there is the one that is as smart as her breasts look, great as her face looks… so people are shocked.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Now, there are two ways to approach a subject that frightens you and makes you feel stupid: you can embrace it with humility and an open mind, or you can ridicule it mercilessly.
Judith Stone
Behind it all is surely an idea so simple, so beautiful, that when we grasp it – in a decade, a century, or a millennium – we will all say to each other, how could it have been otherwise? How could we have been so stupid?
John Archibald Wheeler
Synergy is the driver. There are two levels of synergy: there are operating synergies, which, you know, you’d have to be stupid not to try to take advantage of, and then there are strategic synergies. In other words, in what positions you would be more sustainable, more long term, and so on.
John C. Malone
Though there are still many good people out there in the world, it seems that they’re vastly outnumbered by the stupid, selfish, violent ones.
Donald Ray Pollock
Anything too stupid to be said is sung.
Voltaire
Stupid people always ignored good advice
Johanna Lindsey
So the moral of this week is: if you do something really, really stupid in front of someone you’re just getting to know and they still think you’re awesome, then you got yourself a friend.
Alicia Witt
I’m a staunch Independant. Every time I think I am a Republican, they do something greedy, and every time I think I am a Democrat, they go and do someting stupid.
Jay Leno
Revolutionary politics, revolutionary art, and oh, the revolutionary mind, is the dullest thing on earth… What a stupid word! What a stale fuss!
Wyndham Lewis
A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
Bruce Lee
We need to uptick our image with everyone, including one-armed midgets.
Michael Steele
They say military have the so-called ‘secret intelligence’ – this amount of intelligence must be very secret, since I’ve never seen any intelligent military person, nor I have seen any sense in the bloody stupid wars.
Ozzy Osbourne
We Slytherins are brave, yes, but not stupid. For instance, given the choice, we will always choose to save our own necks.
J. K. Rowling
[talking about word “homophobia”:] I myself donВґt like “gays” – and let me stress that I don’t consider that word a synonym for “homosexual” – in the same way that I don’t like Communists and Feminists as advocates of a harmful and stupid ideology. But have no fear of them.
Rafal A. Ziemkiewicz
In view of the fact that God limited the intelligence of man, it seems unfair that He did not also limit his stupidity.
Konrad Adenauer
It’s very healthy for a young girl to be deterred from promiscuity by fear of contracting a painful, incurable disease, or cervical cancer, or sterility, or the likelihood of giving birth to a dead, blind or brain-damaged baby (even ten years later when she may be happily married).
Phyllis Schlafly
The enemy [in Iraq] pulls back. We think we’re doing well. Well, they pull back. They’re not stupid. And then after we leave, you see what happened.
Donald Trump
I take full responsability…for what we did. It was the right thing to do.
William J. Clinton
I’ve been racking my brain. I’ve been trying to figure out how Bob Dole’s luggage got on my airplane…I told the doctor, I said, ‘Look, I’m worried about the next election.’ … A misunderstanding.
Rush Limbaugh
Most of my cliches aren’t original.
Chuck Knox
Everyone says there’s a lack of leadership in the world these days. I think we should all be thankful, because the only reason for leadership is to convince people to do things that are either dangerous (like invading another country) or stupid (working extra hard without extra pay).
Scott Adams
If a President of the United States ever lied to the American people, he should resign.
William J. Clinton
I used to think she was quite intelligent , in my stupidity. The reason I did was because she knew quite a lot about the theater and plays and literature and all that stuff. If somebody knows quite a lot about all those things, it takes you quite a while to find out whether they’re really stupid or not.
J. D. Salinger
If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things.
Adolf Hitler
If only faces could talk.
Pat Summerall
The earth is a great piece of stupidity.
Victor Hugo
I’m young but I’m not stupid.
Abby Elliott
In our rather stupid time, hunting is belittled and misunderstood, many refusing to see it for the vital vacation from the human condition that it is, or to acknowledge that the hunter does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, he kills in order to have hunted.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
But courage which goes against military expediency is stupidity, or, if it is insisted upon by a commander, irresponsibility.

Jeff Abbott
Oh! I’m stupid as well as insane.
Tamora Pierce
I think that marijuana makes you stupid but sensual. I’ve watched many of my friends and loved ones become more erotic and dumber – just going around with a glazed expression on their faces from their last orgasms to the next – and found them really quite boring.
Timothy Leary
Memo to White House: Calling voters stupid is not a winning strategy.
Karl Rove
What is it with all of these young single white women? Overeducated – doesn’t mean intelligent.
Rush Limbaugh
If you say “the economy,” you show you’re stupid. There’s no such thing as the economy. There is not a unity between the forces of production and the relations of production.
Christopher Hitchens
When you give a speech you don’t go through a laundry list, you talk about the things that you think are important.
Mitt Romney
I don’t want any funny business, and above all I don’t want to be dragged into other people’s funny business. If it’s to be my head on the block, I want to know that it’s doing there, and not that it’s some stupid things that other people have done.
Hans Fallada
I believe in America. I’m one of those silly flag wavers.
Paul Prudhomme
It’s not worth moving heaven and earth, spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person.
Mitt Romney
You simply cannot tell other people they are stupid, even if they really are stupid.
Temple Grandin
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
Bertrand Russell
I suffered a lot when there was, like, a birthday party and I was not invited. Not because I was ugly or stupid; I was not invited because the parents would say to the kids, “Don’t invite him, because he’s poor and he comes from the south of Italy, and he can’t give you nothing.”
Riccardo Tisci
She doesn’t understand the concept of Roman numerals. She thought we just fought in world war eleven.

Rumi
I’m a Bad Test Taker…you mean you’re stupid?
Daniel Tosh
Nothing so obstinately stands in the way of all sorts of progress as pride of opinion. While nothing is so foolish and baseless.

I have an adult emotional life and an editing system inside me which prevents me from being preposterously stupid.
Stephen Hopkins
To be stupid, and selfish, and to have good health are the three requirements for happiness.
Julian Barnes
As soon as I accepted that I am this kind of writer and I happen to live here, and stopped going to meetings and stopped beating myself up because I wasn’t making a ton of money writing for some stupid sitcom, I felt really at home.
Meghan Daum
When one stops working at the height of one’s career, it’s just stupid not to say, ‘I want to make sure I have a house.’
Ali MacGraw
It’s no exaggeration to say that the undecideds could go one way or another.
George H. W. Bush
Many, perhaps most, people who lose their jobs are mistaken about the reason for which they lost their jobs. Some will say that they’re failures, others that their boss had it in for them, and others yet that they were sure their career ended because of a stupid faux pas they made at the company picnic.
Harvey Mackay
It would be stupid tameness, and unaccountable folly, for whole nations to suffer one unreasonable, ambitious and cruel man, to wanton and riot in their misery.
Jonathan Mayhew
There was a time when everyone remembered that stupid thing about me not getting out of bed for less than $10,000 a day. These days, it’s far more important to me that I’m part of a team which raises over $1 million a month for Aids. I’m much more proud of that, than that other old quote.
Linda Evangelista
I love escaping into character. It’s a chance to try on people that you wouldn’t be brave or stupid enough to be in real life.
Andrea Corr
When you walk the track and you see a corner and realise you were going round it at 160mph, you wonder who could be so stupid to take a corner at that speed. But in the car, you don’t even think about that.
Sebastian Vettel
You have to be quite stupid to act.
Rachel Weisz
I never professed to be perfect. I do something wrong or something stupid, I laugh at myself.
John Madden
That sounds stupid, but in most films that take six months, you’re actually spending four weeks to do a fight scene.
Tom Sturridge
Men who think that a woman’s past love affairs lessen her love for them are usually stupid and weak.
Marilyn Monroe
I know one man who was impotent who gave AIDS to his wife and the only thing they did was kiss.
Pat Robertson
All of the characters in my films, they share one commonality. It doesn’t matter whether they are good or bad, it doesn’t matter whether they are smart or stupid, these characters all take responsibility for their own behavior. I’m much the same.
Park Chan-wook
Accept life, take it as it is? Stupid. The means of doing otherwise? Far from our having to take it, it is life that possesses us and on occasion shuts our mouths.
Albert Camus
If being stupid is the only way for an intelligent man to be happy, then let us hope that unhappiness be his choice!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Russian may seem narrow-minded, impudent, or even stupid people, but can only pray for those who are against them.
Winston Churchill
Why are you making a joke out of this?” she asks. “Because it’s stupid, Nik. There’s not even room in my day to think about someone else.
Simone Elkeles
When a book comes out I wonder if one person will buy it. It’s agony. Of course it’s stupid, but it’s agony.
Jeffrey Archer
I have always noticed that people only think you are stupid if you do things differently from them.
Liza Cody
Entities are beings that are dead. They are the lowest beings on the evolutionary scale because they don’t even know they are dead. They are so stupid. What they seek is life again – they come into the world of the living.
Frederick Lenz
A fool flatters himself, a wise man flatters the fool.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
The law against sodomy is trying to stop homosexual men from enjoying themselves. That’s what the law is all about. But this is stupid. What do you do according to the law? You find two men enjoying themselves sexually. You arrest them and throw them in… prison? That outta do it.
Kevin Pollak
V-Day…if you need this one day in a year to show everyone else you truly care for “your loved one” I think it’s quite stupid. I hate this commercialism. It’s all artificial, and has nothing to do with real love.
Jess C Scott
You know, what Einstein has just said isn’t so stupid.
Wolfgang Pauli
I was always one of these people who is irrationally moved by stupid pop songs.
Will Sheff
You can never underestimate the stupidity of the general public.
Scott Adams
One cannot guess how a word functions. One has to look at its use and learn from that. But the difficulty is to remove the prejudice which stands in the way of doing this. It is not a stupid prejudice.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Because saving the people you love isn’t stupid. It isn’t even a choice
Kami Garcia
Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives.
John Stuart Mill
What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying ‘Well, you know, my wife tells me that what women really care about are economic issues, and when I listen to my wife, that’s what I’m hearing.’ Guess what? His wife has actually never worked a day in her life.
Barack Obama
I have had time to analyze my feelings. I am certain that they are totally neurotic, sexist, silly, and a big waste of time.
Phil Donahue
Dimitri: “Were you really going to attack all of us? Doing that…protecting her like that – it was very brave. Stupid, but still brave. Why did you even try it?” Rose: “Because I’m her guardian.”
Richelle Mead
I’m blushing at my own stupid, nonsensical, meaningless thought process, which, by the way, nobody knows about except me.
Sophie Kinsella
God created women beautiful – so that men can love them – and stupid – so that they can love men.
Faina Ranevskaya
Metallica’s the only band i’ve ever been in. I’m not sure that when it ends in five, ten years, I’m going to put an ad in the paper saying, ‘stupid drummer looking for stupid people to play music with,’ Metallica is it and I think when that ceases, that’s it.
Lars Ulrich
I had a place in England and was commuting from England to Australia, which is pretty stupid, but after two years I sort of knew what I wanted to do, more or less.
Diane Cilento
I’m in a foul mood as I’m making stupid mistakes… This morning I lost beyond repair a painting with which I had been happy, having done about twenty sessions on it; it had to be thoroughly scraped away… what a rage I was in!
Claude Monet
The worst days are when you feel foggy in the head – chemo-brain they call it. It’s awful because you feel boring. As well as bored. And stupid. And resigned.
Christopher Hitchens
When I was a kid it was like, who could be the coolest? Who could do the stupidest thing? And you knew it was a stupid thing to do, but you would do it just so you could be the coolest guy. And then you end up doing really cruel crap.
Mike Judge
The media works in sound bites. They can make you look like a genius or stupid.
Kato Kaelin
Private property has made us so stupid and partial that an object is only ours when we have it, when it exists for us as capital … Thus all the physical and intellectual senses have been replaced by … the sense of having.
Karl Marx
I felt, and it may sound a bit stupid, that I want to try things that are hard.
Freddie Ljungberg
You occupied my space. But because you were not in my present, when I looked into my future I saw . . . nothing. Isn’t that sad? And stupid?
Jerry Spinelli
Stay stupid. Follow your unconventional crazy heart.
Steven Pressfield
Are you always this stupid or are you making a special effort today?
Russell Lynes
Art critic! Is that a profession? When I think we are stupid enough, we painters, to solicit those people’s compliments and to put ourselves into their hands! What shame! Should we even accept that they talk about our work?
Edgar Degas
All our lives are symbols. Everything we do is part of a pattern we have at least some say in. The strong make their own patterns and influence other people’s, the weak have their courses mapped out for them. The weak and the unlucky, and the stupid.
Iain Banks
The only thing on my mind is getting into that ring and destroying a boxing myth, someone who has reached a level of infamy through doing a number of stupid things.
David Haye
This foreign policy stuff is a little frustrating.
George W. Bush
First of all, to defend my work, I had to believe that I am doing a totally silly, stupid, innocent comedy.
Milos Forman
I’ve always believed that a person is smart. It’s people that are stupid.
Marilyn Manson
It’s not because nature is angry, it’s rather that we are stupid. We’re not doing the right thing with our planet.
Werner Herzog
There’s never been A day in the last four years I’ve been proud to be his Vice President. Not a single day.
Joe Biden
It’s an ongoing process, in the script, on the set and in the editing room, to make sure you are being true to the emotion of the film without turning it into a melodrama, and making sure you’re getting all the laughs you can without it turning into just some stupid comedy.
Jon Turteltaub
The typical American voter is so stupid, his dog teaches him tricks.
Jonathan Gruber
It’s stupid to expect perfection from bands because afterall they’re just human beings.
Neil Young
It’s the horsey-shape piece that moves in an L shape. It’s what makes chess complicated, and why stupid people can’t play chess. Go play checkers! Knights are the first piece you look at. They elevate the game. No chess master wants to lose her knights.
Courtney Love
Reverse psychology is an awesome tool, I don’t know if you guys know about it, but basically you can make someone think the opposite of what you believe, and that tricks them into doing something stupid. Works like a charm.
Steve Carell
I literally feel pity for a lot of the stupid idiots that I have to deal with.
Rose McGowan
I learned that you don’t take dishes from the table to the dishwasher; you have to rinse them first. I think that’s stupid because I don’t go out in the back yard and hose off before taking a shower.
Bill Engvall
Men. They were all so incredibly easy to sway. Pat them on their heads, give them something to eat, and they’ll follow you anywhere. Add a smile and a few stupid compliments, and they’ll immediately forget all about their other responsibilities.
Julie Garwood
In comedy, you have to be unafraid to hang from the tree branch naked in the high wind and you have to be absolutely unafraid to look ridiculous and silly.
Matt LeBlanc
What’s Walmart, do they sell like wall stuff?
Paris Hilton
This is unparalyzed in the state’s history.
Gib Lewis
Maybe what I wanted was stupid. Maybe it wasn’t even something I could have. But, still it was mine. I didn’t think I could sacrifice my dreams, no matter how much my family meant to me.
Kiera Cass
I just think love is stupid.
Lauren Conrad
One has the idea of a stupid man as perfectly healthy and ordinary, and of illness as making one refined and clever and unusual.
Thomas Mann
What was said about all of us? We’re stupid. You’ll never work in a town again. How do you look your four children in the eye? You’ve sold your soul. You know, it went on and on.
Kellyanne Conway
And with this show we’re trying to be a little sillier. We can do a piece like one we wrote the other day called “Ghost Busters Busters”. Where would never do that in a million years on Mr. Show, but somehow on this show it’s silly and stupid and a little more disposable, so we can do something like that.
B. J. Porter
Artificial intelligence will never be a match for natural stupidity.
Joseph Addison
The difference between stupid and intelligent people – and this is true whether or not they are well-educated – is that intelligent people can handle subtlety.
Neal Stephenson
I couldn’t believe I’d come this far, lost Tyson, suffered through so much, only to fail – stopped by a big stupid monster in a baby-blue tuxedo kilt. Nobody was going to swat down my friends like that! I mean… nobody, not Nobody. Ah, you know what I mean.
Rick Riordan
What I think is that the F-word is basically just a convenient nasty-sounding word that we tend to use when we would really like to come up with a terrific-ally witty insult, the kind Winston Churchill always came up with when enormous women asked him stupid questions at parties.
Dave Barry
I’ve always tried to be funny, or stupid, or whatever. I love making people laugh and I think it comes quite naturally to me.
Brian Littrell
Somebody can become a celebrity for being stupid. That is what it’s turned into.
Kate Hudson
I get speaker’s fees from time to time, but not very much.
Mitt Romney
We’re the same! Even Sonya says we are. We’ve always been the same, and we’re both acting the same stupid way now! We hold ourselves to higher standards than everyone else.
Richelle Mead
Frustration and I have become good friends. And like any friend who’s a bad influence, frustration sometimes makes me do things that are, in retrospect, stupid. – Sirensong
Jenna Black
I realize that books are not the entire world, even if they sometimes seem
to contain it. But I need the stupid things.
Luc Sante
My thing was play as hard as you can, don’t be stupid, pay attention to details, and have enough guts in the clutch that you’re not afraid to make a play. Some things I thought were important for a young man to know.
Joe Paterno
I love trains. I dont even mind First Great Western, which is a stupid name because it implies every carriage is first class, but theyre not.
Tim Rice
I know it sounds stupid, but we’re just playing. We’re playing hard, but we’re just playing.
Darcy Tucker
Ladies and Gentlemen, King of the Stupid Question: Todd Grisham!
John Cena
Clinton’s an unusually good liar. Unusually Good. Do you realize that?
Bob Kerrey
If your brains were dynamite there wouldn’t be enough to blow your hat off.
Kurt Vonnegut
Ladies and gentlemen, these are not assertions. These are facts, corroborated by many sources, some of them sources of the intelligence services of other countries.
Colin Powell
Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.
Elbert Hubbard
A feminazi is a woman to whom the most important thing in life is seeing to it that as many abortions as possible are performed. Their unspoken reasoning is quite simple. Abortion is the single greatest avenue for militant women to exercise their quest for power and advance their belief that men aren’t necessary.
Rush Limbaugh
Just like in rugby, the pinnacle was playing for the All Blacks. That was always a massive thing. But you never speak it outwardly because it can sound stupid. But if you don’t have massive dreams, you might as well stay in bed.
Sonny Bill Williams
I said it, just like that. No stupid jokes, no changing the subject. For once, I wasn’t embarrassed, because it was the truth. I had fallen. I think I had always been falling. And she might as well know, if she didn’t already, because there was no going back now. Not for me.
Kami Garcia
I know it sounds stupid and cliche, but I just want to get better. I want to keep improving.
Chase Utley
It turns out your not dyslexic, your just really really stupid.
Frankie Boyle
One should guard against believing the great masses to be more stupid than they actually are.
Adolf Hitler
If a young fella has an option of having a decent career or joining the army to fight in Iraq, you can bet your life that he would not be in Iraq.
Charles Rangel
War means blind obedience, unthinking stupidity, brutish callousness, wanton destruction, and irresponsible murder.
Alexander Berkman
I have to admit that the empty prestige and the stupid glory – yes, the horrible rush, the deadly sense of importance that war brings to life – are hard illusions to shake off. Look at me, a war correspondent.
Michael Hastings
Michael Moore simultaneously represents everything I detest in a human being and everything I feel obligated to defend in an American. Quite simply, it is that stupid moron’s right to be that utterly, completely wrong.
Dennis Miller
And now the sequence of events in no particular order.
Dan Rather
The Organization of American States couldn’t pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written on the heel.
Lyndon B. Johnson
You think I am a fool, but you are a greater fool than I am.
Sitting Bull
Antidotes are what you take to prevent dotes.
Joseph Addison
Soros and the Tides Foundation have been trying to indoctrinate our kids. Do you remember that stupid – what was the name of that – what was the name of the film that they did? There it is – “Story of Stuff.”
Glenn Beck
Genies rarely have nightmares, for the same reason that elephants don’t usually worry about being trampled underfoot. With the possible exception of bottles, there’s nothing in the cosmos large enough or malicious enough to frighten them, or stupid enough to try.
Tom Holt
One of the problems with putting Huck Finn into a movie or on the stage is, you always make the white people stupid and racist. The point is, they don’t know they’re racist.
Hal Holbrook
We spend our lives fighting to get people very slightly more stupid than ourselves to accept truths that the great men have always known.
Doris Lessing
Sorry dude, but we’re in a boxing match and you went against your word and tried to make me look weak and stupid in front of 17 million people. That’s just not gonna happen.
Dustin Diamond
Microsoft isn’t stupid.
Jesse Schell
A lot of artists are just really stupid about money, and it’s really hard to find somebody who kind of thinks of shuffling money around and doing business as an art.
Kathleen Hanna
I will be very sad when global warming and toxins kill off all the toads and frogs and salamanders. Here’s hoping we, as humans, figure out a way to be less stupid.
Moby
Money demands that you sell, not your weakness to men’s stupidity, but your talent to their reason.
Ayn Rand
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
Albert Einstein
It’s been a long time since anybody caught me saying something stupid.
Ted Turner
We have come to expect campaigns to be mean and stupid and politicians to be unresponsive, self-seeking and for sale to the highest bidder. We make jokes about our vice president, and all we ask of a president is that he be likeable. We seem to have given up on the Pentagon’s corrupt use of our tax dollars.
Donella Meadows
Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.
Albert Einstein
Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them.
George Orwell
I hate watching me. I hate watching me. It just makes me feel awful. I think, ‘I look stupid from that angle. I wish I didn’t let them put that shirt on me.’
Jesse Eisenberg
The stupidity of a stupid man is exercised in a restricted field; the stupidity of an intelligent man has a much wider diffusion, and a far greater effect, aided as it is by the element of surprise.
Peter Ustinov
Yoga is the most boring exercise. It’s for people who are too lazy to get on the elliptical. Bikram, where they heat up the room to mimic India’s climate, is especially stupid. People in India are not skinny because they’re doing yoga in 105-degree rooms; they’re skinny because there’s no food.
Noureen DeWulf
To boast of a performance which I cannot beat is merely stupid vanity. And if I can beat it that means there is nothing special about it. What has passed is already finished with. What I find more interesting is what is still to come.
Emil Zatopek
Jazz is not something that can be defined through blunt instruments. It is much more poetic than that.
Pat Metheny
To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I’m working on the foundation.
Marilyn Monroe
Most of the time I feel stupid, insensitive, mediocre, talentless and vulnerable – like I’m about to cry any second – and wrong. I’ve found that when that happens, it usually means I’m writing pretty well, pretty deeply, pretty rawly.
Andre Dubus III
Growth is a stupid goal. So, by the way, is no-growth.
Donella Meadows
Stupid to speak of blame when the wills of the immortals are involved.
Jacqueline Carey
A lot of writers come from Harvard and such, and are rich, and they write under the misapprehension that poor people are stupid. So when they do write them, they are hillbillies or rednecks or Christian idiots.
Norm MacDonald
I have done a lot of stupid things in my life.
Xavier Niel
Education in philosophy is energy speaking to energy, a higher perspective of spirit that is trying to awaken its next natural generation to something beyond the stupid appearances of things.
Kenny Smith
Oh, innocent victims of Cupid, remember this terse little verse: To let a fool kiss you is stupid. To let a kiss fool you is worse.
Yip Harburg
Well, speaking as a feminist, I’m glad that women can lead–uh, groups of unspeakable magical evil.” “Yes,” Alan said gravely. “It’d be shoking if the evil magicians were sexist. For one thing, that would mean they were stupid, and having stupid enemies would be a terrible blow to my manly pride.
Sarah Rees Brennan
I really had no idea you’d be this stupid but then again you were the only person that really got me
Novala Takemoto
So Carol, you’re a housewife and mother. And have you got any children?
Michael Barrymore
[Chess] is a foolish expedient for making idle people believe they are doing something very clever, when they are only wasting their time.
George Bernard Shaw
The foolhardy are not necessarily stupid, for fools simply follow their imagination whereas the stupid have none.
Maurice Carter
We stand in the shadow of Jefferson who believed that a society founded upon the rule of law and liberty was dependent upon public education and the diffusion of knowledge.
Matt Blunt
There is more beauty in truth, even if it is a dreadful beauty. The storytellers at the city gate twist life so that it looks sweet to the lazy and the stupid and the weak, and this only strengthens their infirmities and teaches nothing, cures nothing, nor does it let the heart soar.
John Steinbeck
I think it is just stupid economics for a government to approach economic management from a strand of thinking regarding unions as enemies.
Bob Hawke
When I do my vocal warm-ups everyone calls me the dolphin because I do stupid siren noises.
Ella Henderson
One stupid act of some stupid extremist puts us all down.
Amani
It would be stupid to confide your entire plan to one person. It’s infinitely smarter to give little pieces of it to each person working with you. That way, if someone betrays you, the loss isn’t too great.
Veronica Roth
Far below I heard Cacus bellowing as millions, maybe even thousands of filthy gallons of water slammed into him. Meanwhile, Annabeth alternately shouted, gagged, hit me, called me endearing pet names like, “Idiot! Stupid – dirty –
moron – ” and topped it all off with, “Kill you!
Rick Riordan
Big Brother sounded like a silly stunt and that’s what it is.
Nigel Kneale
I am more stupid about some things than others; not equally stupid in all directions; I am not a well-rounded person.
Saul Bellow
Between a fellow who is stupid and honest and one who is smart and crooked, I will take the first. I won’t get much out of him, but with that other guy I can’t keep what I’ve got.
Lewis Blaine Hershey
There’s so much talk about the drug generation and songs about drugs. That’s stupid. They aren’t songs about drugs; they’re about life.
Cass Elliot
George W. Bush is a person who is totally disinterested in the world, uneducated. I’m not saying he’s stupid. I don’t think he’s stupid. He’s crafty as hell, but he projects well on television. And that’s the real big problem. He is the perfect “what, me worry?” president.
Robert Scheer
Peel off these dusty wool blankets of apathy and antipathy and cynical desiccation. I want life in all its stupid sticky rawness.
Isaac Marion
Royce nodded. “Invest in crossbows. Next time stay hidden and just put a couple bolts into each of your target’s chests. All this talking is just stupid.” “Royce!” Hadrian admonished. “What? You’re always saying I should be nicer to people. I’m trying to be helpful.
Michael J. Sullivan
I think cats would have an even worse attitude if they found out how stupid their names were.
Demetri Martin
But clever people all make one mistake. They all think everyone else is stupid. And everyone isn’t stupid. They just take a bit more time, that’s all.
Robert Harris
Most of the real bad guys in the world are people like you and me; they’re not stupid, and you can’t smell their horns.
Rutger Hauer
I’m fairly certain that YOLO is just Carpe Diem for stupid people.
Jack Black
There are people who follow me on Twitter and tell me how much they don’t like me, how much they don’t want me on the show, and that they hope I die. And it’s not just about the character. They tell me how they’ve never liked Scott Foley, and that he’s a stupid, white, plain-bread looking fool.
Scott Foley
In math, you could get 100 percent. It was very fair. That’s what I liked about math. You could figure it out, and the teacher couldn’t have a stupid opinion about it.
Norm MacDonald
Nonsense! It is said that the West had a global policy in regard to Islam. That is stupid. There isn’t a global Islam.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
How can I play baseball if I’m stupid? If I was stupid I wouldn’t have pitched in the World Series. I’d be playing ball in Mexico or Yugoslavia or on Pluto.
Joaquin Andujar
The wisest among us is very lucky never to have met the woman, be she beautiful or ugly, intelligent or stupid, who could drive him crazy enough to be fit to be put into an asylum.
Denis Diderot
A data structure is just a stupid programming language.
Bill Gosper
You see I kept asking myself then: why am I so stupid that if others are stupid—and I know they are—yet I won’t be wiser?
Fyodor Dostoevsky
The fact that I am interrupting serious work to answer these questions proves that I am so stupid that I should be penalized severely. I will be. Don’t worry.
Ernest Hemingway
The existing principle of selfish interest and competition has been carried to its extreme point; and, in its progress, has isolated the heart of man, blunted the edge of his finest sensibilities, and annihilated all his most generous impulses and sympathies.
Frances Wright
Pretend to be dumb, that’s the only way to reach old age.
Friedrich Durrenmatt
We intellectuals are not stupid: we know the phenomenology of guilt is a bad photocopy of the phenomenology of thought, so it’s much cheaper to press that button.
Timothy Morton
Y’know scientists are funny. We probe and measure and dissect. Invent lights without heat, weigh a caterpillar’s eyebrow. But whenit comes to really important things we’re as stupid as the caveman…. Like love. Makes the world go ’round, but what do we know about it? Is it a fact? Is it chemistry? Electricity?
Martin Berkeley
It was stupid behaviour. And you take a look at the explosion, and it knocks you down and you wake up every morning and you’re scared and you’re depressed and sad, and you kind of got to let that knock you down and knock you down.
David Letterman
The fools ran after me and I ran after the whores, foolish though I realized such a proceeding to be.
C. S. Forester
Looking back, you can romanticize the things you did back then. I also like talking about the stupid things I’ve done.
Walter Martin
I was provided with additional input that was radically different from the truth. I assisted in furthering that version.
Oliver North
SpongeBob is a complete innocent – not an idiot. SpongeBob never fully realizes how stupid Patrick is. They’re whipping themselves up into situations – that’s always where the humor comes from.
Stephen Hillenburg
$100,000 donors buy access to Congress and the White House. We believe it’s long past time to clean up Washington.
William J. Clinton
Tiger Woods is stupid; not for cheating, but for having one cell phone. What type of player you know has one cell phone?
Donnell Rawlings
There’s no greater tragedy than an equal intensity, in the same soul or the same man, of the intellectual sentiment and the moral sentiment. For a man to be utterly and absolutely moral, he has to be a bit stupid. For a man to be absolutely intellectual, he has to be a bit immoral.
Fernando Pessoa
Any girl can be glamorous. All you have to do is stand still and look stupid.
Hedy Lamarr
I did all the stupid things you’d expect from a 21-year-old kid with money.
Curt Schilling
But love is love. It makes you do terribly stupid things.
Paula McLain
Hey, T-Rex? Remind me next time I want to get smartass with you that it’s a really stupid move on my part? (Talon) Oh, no, you don’t, you wuss. You told me the next time you saw Ash you were going to ask him if he’d seen the movie 10,000 BC and if it’d made him homesick. (Wulf)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
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
Babies, babies, babies. Why did God make so many babies? But no, God didn’t make them. Stupid people made them.
Margaret Mitchell
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
Albert Einstein
There is no idea so stupid or hackneyed that a sufficiently-talented writer can’t get a good story out of it.
Lawrence Watt-Evans
Stupid people shouldn’t breed.
Jenny Holzer
Simple doesn’t mean stupid. Thinking that it does, does.
Paul Krugman
With so much chaos, someone will do something stupid. And when they do, things will turn nasty.
Alan Moore
There’s something scary about stupidity made coherent.
Tom Stoppard
The tendency in comedy is to have a character who’s stupid get more stupid, because you’re trying to top yourself and not just repeat.
Matt Groening
Cycling is such a stupid sport. Next time you are in a car travelling at 40mph think about jumping out – naked. That’s what it’s like when we crash.
David Millar
Oh no. Oh God. I couldn’t possibly be so stupid.” “Don’t limit yourself. You can be anything you wish.
Tessa Dare
If you think your boss is stupid, remember: you wouldn’t have a job if he was any smarter.
John Gotti
It sounds really stupid, I hate making cosmic comments like this but, I just let it do what it wants to do.
Danny Elfman
Climb up the ladder! Climb up the ladder! Are you stupid?!
CM Punk
Because I’m pretty, everybody thinks I’m stupid. But it is like a mask, and you have to break the mask to show that there is something else behind it. You have to show who you are to make the others come to discover you.
Monica Bellucci
Because Tom Doherty and people like that are not stupid. If they could have streamlined their operation more to get more money out of it, they would have done it. It’s not like they’re a bunch of idiots.
Jerry Pournelle
The best mistake I ever made was believing that I was stupid. It was a childhood thing, but it played out big-time as an adult. It scorned me the rest of my life – in a good way.
Barbara Corcoran
I think business has to be stupider. I want to do really straightforward, stupid business – just talk to me like a 4-year-old. And I refuse to negotiate. I do not negotiate. I can collaborate. But I’m an artist, so as soon as you negotiate, you’re being compromised.
Kanye West
I consider myself a modern-day dad, where I still got rock’n’roll in me, but yet I take being a parent and relationships very seriously in life. I’m tired of the image of the father as a fat, beer-chugging, stupid guy. That image has to change. I’m changing it, baby, one city at a time.
Jim Breuer
My reflection, when I first made myself master of the central idea of the ‘Origin’, was, ‘How extremely stupid not to have thought of that!’
Thomas Huxley
Many have forgotten what we came here for,
Never knew or had a clue, so you’re on the floor.
Just growin’ not known’ about your past…
Now you’re lookin’ pretty stupid while you’re shakin’ your ass.
Chuck D
The problem is, folks, they all have a memory, including us. Two weeks and we forget. But I don’t forget. And you know what, I bring it up. Jonathan Gruber said the American people are essentially stupid for approving and allowing Obamacare to happen.
Donald Trump
I am committed to curbing the influence of money in our political system.
William J. Clinton
What is a ‘thing’? All is movement, a flowing. How stupid it is to speak of the ‘mind’. There is a body; there is a mind: they are mixed up together. Shakespeare with a hole in his sock will not write the sonnet of a Shakespeare with socks intact.
Kenneth Patchen
Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid people, it is true that most stupid people are conservative.
John Stuart Mill
It sounded stupid, but of course everything does when you’re just getting the bare bones facts, only the basics.
Sarah Dessen
If you go in a confirmation process, you’re going to be asked about the embarrassing or stupid things you said. You should have a view.
David Brooks
When do we ask the Sierra Club to pick up the tab for this leak?
Rush Limbaugh
To the intelligent man or woman, life appears infinitely mysterious. But the stupid have an answer for every question.
Edward Abbey
Nature makes only dumb animals. We owe the fools to society.
Honore de Balzac
We’re going to look awfully stupid if we give income tax relief to people who do not pay income taxes.
Joe Scarborough
The internet is a great way to get on the net.
Bob Dole
The trouble with being a daydreamer who doesn’t say much is that the teachers at school, especially those who don’t know you very well, are likely to think you’re rather stupid. Or, if not stupid, then dull. No one can see the amazing things that are going on in your head.
Ian Mcewan
Traditionally the show must go on which is a stupid thing to say, but that in a nutshell is what’s going on. We have a new record out; if we won’t tour, the new record dies. It’s reality – it’s what business is nowadays. You just need to tour to sell your albums.
Kerry King
Ninety-five per cent of my language problems are the fault of that stupid little midget.
Gianfranco Zola
Well, I’m not going to get into that. I think that those kind of distinctions and lists of titles like “street photographer” are so stupid. I’m a photographer, a still photographer. That’s it.
Garry Winogrand
The industry’s not stupid. The industry knows that if those foods are labeled ‘genetically engineered’, the public will shy away and won’t take them.
Jeremy Rifkin
People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!
Cee Lo Green
I punish myself more than anybody else does if I am stupid about my actions, and I suffer, really suffer.
Eartha Kitt
Sure the people are stupid: the human race is stupid. Sure Congress is an inefficient instrument of government. But the people are not stupid enough to abandon representative government for any other kind, including government by the guy who knows.
Bernard DeVoto
I think it would be stupid for us to try and tell people who are dancing in a discotheque about the problems of the world. That is the very thing they have come away to avoid.
Giorgio Moroder
Having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. Only stupid people or fools would think it was bad.
Michael McFaul
No truly sophisticated proponent of repression would be stupid enough to shatter the facade of democratic institutions.
Murray Levin
I’ve said this before, and I’m sure there are people who disagree, but I feel like one of the reasons there aren’t a lot more women in stand-up – and there are many more now; it’s not parity, but it’s getting there – is that women are not socialized to look stupid or silly. They’re socialized to be pretty and precious.
Aisha Tyler
I’m not stupid. After you just punch me, I’m not gonna be like, ‘Alright, let me do that again.’
Israel Adesanya
What I worry about and don’t like is the way in which the ideology of multiculturalism has declined into cultural relativism. I think that’s very dangerous. When the Archbishop of Canterbury, for God’s sake, says that you can’t have one law for everybody… that’s stupid.
Salman Rushdie

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.

I’m always disappointed when I see the word ‘Puritan’ tossed around as shorthand for a bunch of generic, boring, stupid, judgmental killjoys.

Sarah Vowell
When I was 17 me and my friend had mopeds. We used to play a game where we would close our eyes and drive while counting to the highest number we could. Once I got to eight, and that was pretty much the most stupid thing I’ve ever done in my life. I ended up on the other side of the road.
