“Aren’t all fairy tales based in fact? You yourself are supposed to be nothing more than a myth. Pandora’s box is a story parents read to their children at night,” she countered. “That means life itself is a fairy tale. Like the characters, we all live and love and search for a happily-ever-after.”
Gena Showalter
As I go on in standup, I keep being described as cleaner and cleaner as I do each hour, they’re like, ‘It’s unbelievable how clean,’ ‘He’s the cleanest person in the world.’ And then I’ll do shows and people will be like, ‘You’re supposed to be so clean, but you’re talking about cancer.’
Jim Gaffigan
Routine is supposed to be the great deadener of souls; how much worse is the half-completed task, the broken round, the unfulfilled routine?
Richard Brookhiser
Subordinates look for their bosses to be positive, in good humor, and cheerful. They aren’t supposed to be emotional or have bad days. but leaders are guman, too, and when they are in a lousy mood and snap at a subordinate, it can have a devastating effect.
Donald T. Phillips
When the Iron Curtain fell, all of the West rejoiced that the East would become just as free as the West. It was never supposed to be the other way around.
Rick Falkvinge
When one man becomes more important than the country he’s supposed to be leading, this will always create a problem.
Martina Navratilova
I don’t want to cower at somebody’s interpretation of what I’m about. I’m supposed to be doing it and I’m going to throw this word out there-with excellence. There’s no reason for me to give anything less that all I’ve got in everything I do. That’s scriptural. For me, that’s the foundation of who I am.
Mike Matheny
The simple fact was that if the song wasn’t about me, I couldn’t see how it could possibly be about anybody else, including the one I knew it was supposed to be about, and good luck to him, too.
William Saroyan
Less is more. I think that if you try to put too many beauty products on, you’re probably gonna get used to it. Your skin is not supposed to be covered with a bunch of stuff, so I think that less is definitely more.
Nina Agdal
Heaven is supposed to be a perfect place. Yet, it experienced a war (Revelation 12:7). How can there be a war in a perfect place and if it happened before why couldn’t it happen again? Why would I want to go to a place in which war can occur? That’s exactly what I’m trying to escape, aren’t you?
Dennis McKinsey
It’s not supposed to be easy, if it’s easy, it’s no good, that’s the way I look at it.
Craig Charles
most of us carry into marriage not only our childlike illusions, but we bring to it as well the demand that it has to be wonderful, because it’s supposed to be.
Eda LeShan
Yes, of course. Are you really so arrogant as to believe we are alone in this universe? Millions of stars, and we’re supposed to be the only living creatures? No, there are many things out there, we just don’t know.
Tom Cruise
I don’t think you’re supposed to be able to get at that information,” said Leslie. “Don’t look,” said Goldstein, peering over Charles’s shoulder. “We don’t know anything about illegal hacking.” He whistled cheerily.
Patricia Briggs
After what I have seen, I realize that absolutely anything is possible, and that we did not come here to suffer. Life is supposed to be great, and we are very, very loved. The way I look at life has changed dramatically, and I am so glad to have been given a second chance to experience “heaven on earth”.
Anita Moorjani
I like to think in camera, but at the last minute the most important thing is that there is something happening between the actors. But good actors can have a lot of scenes going around them but sometimes it sort of helps the performance because it takes their mind off of who they are supposed to be.
Audrey Tautou
I worked at a local country club that I never belonged to. I did random tasks in the pro shop and supposed to be in charge of the register, but that didn’t go so well. They quickly realized I was better with people, not computers.
Shelley Hennig
The best gift I was ever given was the arts. My mum gave me those on a silver platter. Growing up, her and my grandmother would take me to ballets, classical concerts, even smoky jazz clubs I wasn’t supposed to be in!
Jill Scott
Rap is supposed to be about keeping it real and not relinquishing your roots in the community. Without that, it’s just posturing. Somebody who claims to speak for the ‘hood don’t need no private jet.
Chuck D
My interest is that there is a disconnect between the science and the size of the threat that people mention about nature, the planet and the climate, and the emotion that this triggers. So we are supposed to be extremely frightened people, but despite that we appear to sleep pretty well.
Bruno Latour
Life has many changes. Tomorrow it may rain, and it’s supposed to be sunshine, ’cause it’s summertime. But God’s got a funny soul, he plays like Charlie Parker.
Charles Mingus
All British castles and old country homes are supposed to be haunted. It’s in the lease.
Bob Hope
The moment you introduce difference into a museum, then the privileged space is contested, and under the most ideal circumstances what all artists want is the chance to be competitive. That’s what I think the museum is supposed to be.
Kerry James Marshall
I would tell my 25-year-old self to relax, just trust yourself, it’s going to be okay. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be right here and right now.
Andrea Hall
When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty.
Stevie Nicks
I don’t think you can get away with putting your talents in a toilet bowl and not having them flushed away. Forever. There is a level of murder of one’s soul and of the culture that they’re supposed to be feeding vitamins to.
Sean Penn
I’m not supposed to be playing, the music is supposed to be playing me. I’m just supposed to be standing there with the horn, moving my fingers. The music is supposed to be coming through me; that’s when it’s really happening.
Sonny Rollins
My persona has always been what a man was never supposed to be. Outrageous, gregarious, crazy, silly, funny.
Richard Simmons
There are so many things that can take over your life: money, alcohol, drugs – even fashion. People hand you things, and you start to believe life is easy. And it’s not like that – you’re not supposed to be the person you play in the movies.
Miley Cyrus
For me, art is supposed to be a question mark.
Marilyn Manson
Your tattoos are supposed to be some connection to your personality. That’s a lot more important than going in and just picking one off a wall. I’ve never understood why people get butterflies tattooed on their bottoms or whatever. That’s really weird.
Ville Valo
Things are finally starting to calm down and be the way they’re supposed to be. I think things happen for a reason.
Eddie Cibrian
The jury is supposed to be twelve peers, but technically that would mean every single person on the jury should have Asperger’s syndrome, because then they’d really understand me.
Jodi Picoult
Life is supposed to be fun. It’s not a job or occupation. We’re here only once and we should have a bit of a laugh.
Billy Connolly
I was born in London. I moved to New Zealand when I was really young; I can’t remember London. My parents went and did what was supposed to be a one-year O.E. (overseas experience) that turned into a 9 year O.E. and they had two kids.
Maybe the start line was supposed to be your finish line. Don’t be afraid to walk backwards.
I always said I was never gonna be an entertainer, Suicide was never supposed to be entertainment.
Alan Vega
Anyone who had ever read a novel knew that governesses were supposed to be meek and downtrodden.
Lisa Kleypas
Don’t tell anyone. I’m supposed to be dumb.
Helena Christensen
I was supposed to be authoritative, but at the same time had to be likeable, a quality that is a bonus, not a requirement, for men in the same position.
Dee Dee Myers
When I was growing up in Terrell, Texas, I felt that it was not where I was supposed to be. I knew that I was meant for a different destination. I think that the minute I was born, there was something inside telling me where I would go, it’s like energy – an intangible destiny.
Jamie Foxx
I’m supposed to be, I am an artist. Yes, I’m lonely. But I’m married to my loneliness.
Lady Gaga
If you were listening to the hypnotic voice of your Source, you’d be constantly hearing the drum beating that says, ‘You are loved, and you are worthy, and you are valued and life is supposed to be good for you. You are worthy, you are valued, you are loved and life is supposed to be good for you.’
Esther Hicks
American democracy is supposed to be the paradigm for the rest of the world, and it no longer is. Citizens cannot be guaranteed that they can walk into a voting booth with any assurance that their vote will be counted.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
I think that in human evolution it has never been as necessary to have this substance LSD. It is just a tool to turn us into what we are supposed to be.
Albert Hofmann
Bill Clinton became president, and he [Bill Clinton] kept cheating – and she kept destroying the women. She was supposed to be paid off in 2008. They gave her health care; she botched that. Hillarycare, it was called in 1993, ’94, whatever. That was her first payoff. Co-presidency was the next payoff.
Rush Limbaugh
But it is important to observe that when Europe or the United Nations impose sanctions that are supposed to be aimed against a certain regime, usually generally millions of people end up being directly punished.
Omar Bongo
My most treasured item is the brown leather bag that my mum bought me from a little Italian shop for my 21st. It’s supposed to be a vanity bag, but I use it as a handbag.
Felicity Jones
Virginia Woolf thought a lot about her own sex when she wrote. In the best sense of the word, her writing is very feminine, and by that I mean that women are supposed to be very sensitive to all the sensations of nature, much more so than men, much more contemplative. It’s this quality that marks her best works.
Simone de Beauvoir
We’re not completely happy here because we’re not supposed to be! Earth is not our final home; we were created for something much better.
Rick Warren
It really depends on the director. I think quite often, it’s not what you expect. The most serious film can be the most fun. The one that’s supposed to be fun can be the most serious. I don’t think there are any hard-and-fast rules. I just think it really depends on your director and what the general vibe is.
Eric Bana
There were several things a Yale freshman was supposed to be able to do. You had to demonstrate in the Olympic-size Yale pool that you could swim 50 yards or be inducted into swimming class.
Dick Cavett
You’ve been here before, you already know how it goes, you chose this, you know, it’s supposed to be over
Dessa Darling
I never even went to high school because I went straight from middle school into the music business. I don’t really know what it is supposed to be like.
Cheyenne Kimball
I was working a corporate job for years and it always felt restrictive, it felt like I was doing something I wasn’t supposed to be doing.
Fred Foster
Life’s hard. It’s supposed to be. If we didn’t suffer, we’d never learn anything.
Ethan Hawke
I’m reminded of who I am, who I was, and who I’m supposed to be.
Chris Evans
No company in the world would be satisfied with less sales, less customers or less jobs just because it’s supposed to be good for the environment.
Karl-Johan Persson
I’m always trying to challenge everyone to raise the game on the artistic level. We are supposed to be the best. Make sure we don’t get complacent or comfortable, and always trying to push the limit on trying to write great songs. At the end of the day it’s why we do what we do.
Michael W. Smith
I’m supposed to be taking time off. But I’m still writing and I have this Gap advert lined up.
Joss Stone
I’m supposed to be a scientific person but I use intuition more than logic in making basic decisions.
Seymour Cray
Perfection is a toxic desire. We are not supposed to be perfect. The challenge is not to be perfect, it’s to be whole.
Jane Fonda
How can you be conservative and justify wiretapping people without a warrant? We’re supposed to be the party of personal freedom and civil liberties.
Roger Stone
And ICE and Border Patrol officers will be allowed to do their jobs the way their jobs are supposed to be done.
Donald Trump
The National Security Adviser is supposed to be an arbiter of policy and open minded in internal debates. But the playing field was never balanced. It was always tilted toward Rumsfeld’s position, which is obviously the same as Bush’s.
Seymour Hersh
Yesterday’s just a memory, tomorrow is never what it’s supposed to be.
Bob Dylan
People look at you and me to see what they are supposed to be. And, if we don’t disappoint them, maybe, just maybe, they won’t disappoint us.
Walt Disney
I am not supposed to be an expert in every field. I am supposed to be an expert in picking experts.
Moshe Dayan
I definitely feel closer to the feminine side of the human being than I do the male – or the American idea of what a male is supposed to be. Just watch a beer commercial and you’ll see what I mean.
Kurt Cobain
It feels strange to me to be living in a box, hiding from the steadying influence of the moon; wearing the hide of a cow, which is supposed to be dyed to match God-knows-what, on my feet; making promises over the telephone about things I will do at a precise hour next year.
Barbara Kingsolver
Sacrfice,” the captain said. “You made one. I made one. We all made them. But you were angry over yours. You kept thinking about what you lost. You didn’t get it. Sacrifice is a part of life. It’s supposed to be. It’s not something to regret. It’s something to aspire to.
Mitch Albom
The Unbookables are supposed to be unbookable. That’s what it’s all about.
Doug Stanhope
At least he had Annabeth. They would find a way out of Tartarus. They had to. He didn’t think much of fates and prophecies, but he did believe in one thing: Annabeth and he were supposed to be together. They hadn’t survived so much just to get killed now.
Rick Riordan
There is no significance of God in my life, God is my life. I would not be, without God. I am supposed to be dead.
Danny Trejo
But the Courts aren’t places humans are supposed to be, especially the Unseelie Court. Most faeries won’t even go there.” We have to go – we have to get Ravus’s heart. He’s going to die if we don’t.” what are we going to do? Go down there and ask for it?” Pretty much.
Holly Black
What I am really concerned about is what art is supposed to be – and can become.
Bruce Nauman
Rules? Ixion is supposed to be free of rules, yet it seems as strict as Grave in its own way and more…more dangerous.
Marianne de Pierres
Those of us who have been lucky enough to experience a calling in our work have a certain faith and peace of mind that it’s exactly when we’re supposed to be doing.
Chip Conley
Faffing of course does not fit the programme. We are supposed to be busy, productive citizens.
Tom Hodgkinson
Actually there’s a very bad trend in some cults about how Guru’s are supposed to be mean to their students, and there are some who revel in this and are abusive.
Robert Thurman
A lot of crime fiction writing is also lazy. Personality is supposed to be shown by the protagonists taste in music, or were told that the hero looks like the young Cary Grant. Film is the medium these writers are looking for.
Peter Temple
This is the middle of my life, I think of it as a place, like the middle of a river, the middle of a bridge, halfway across, halfway over. I’m supposed to have accumulated things by now: possessions, responsibilities, achievements, experience and wisdom. I’m supposed to be a person of substance.
Margaret Atwood
Really, I’m trying to care, Artemis, really. But I thought it was all supposed to be over when the fat lady sings. Well, she’s singing, but it doesn’t appear to be over
Eoin Colfer
As a journalist, I’m not supposed to be the subject, but as an author, I’m fair game – another ingredient in the media soup.
Michael Azerrad
An actor is supposed to be a sensitive instrument.
Marilyn Monroe
We’re supposed to be making up this stuff, playing at being in love, not actually being in love.
Suzanne Collins
And, oh God, in my misspent youth as a housewife, I, too, used to bake bread, in those hectic and desolating days just prior to the woman’s movement, when middle-class women were supposed to be wonderful wives and mothers, gracious hostesses…. I used to feel so womanly when I was baking my filthy bread.
Angela Carter
I was raised with this idea that we’re supposed to be tolerant of other people’s opinions, but then what happens if other people’s opinions are racist and hateful and wrong?
I’ve learned quite a lot, over the years, by avoiding what I was supposed to be learning.
Margaret Atwood
American democracy is supposed to be the paradigm for the rest of the world.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
We all grow into the beautiful person that we’re supposed to be, some earlier, some later.
Sandra Bullock
Apollo 13, as you may remember, gave us a reactor that is bubbling away right now somewhere in the Pacific. It’s supposed to be bubbling away on the moon, but it’s in the Pacific Ocean instead.
David R. Brower
Here is a guy who’s supposed to be the Genghis Khan of the church, the pro-choice people hate him, and I don’t know about his labor background so I figured there must be more to him, and there is. I wrote a book about [John Cardinal O’Connor].
Nat Hentoff
I don’t know why people say I’m not supposed to be doing what I’m doing. I’m just trying to do my job. I’m blessed, and I’m glad that I’m blessed.
Albert Pujols
In Latin America, women are supposed to be voluptuous. They don’t believe that you have to be skinny to be attractive.
Sofia Vergara
Apparently the only people who are supposed to be responsible are the taxpayers – and they are increasingly made responsible for other people’s irresponsibility.
Thomas Sowell
As far as police go, if officers are really that scared or timid [on the streets], maybe they shouldn’t be police officers. Their job is to protect and serve and they’re supposed to be the bravest of the brave.
Brandon Marshall
Nothing in this world happens without a reason. That we are all exactly where we are supposed to be, and that the pieces of the puzzle have a tendency to come together when you least expect it.
Jane Green
Being Latino means being from everywhere, and that is exactly what America is supposed to be about.
Raquel Cepeda
In religion, you’re supposed to be somehow in touch with something deep and full of mysteries.
Freeman Dyson
It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together … and I knew it.
Tom Hanks
corporate America corrupted the watchdogs that were supposed to be guarding the public interest by feeding them under the table.
Arianna Huffington
Its difficult to do a genre film well, and it doesnt matter if youre talking vampire movies or Dawn of the Dead or The Thing or Escape From New York. Those kind of movies, they understand what the old-school B-movie is supposed to be, they get the throwback of it.
Ethan Hawke
Modern women are just bombarded. There’s nothing but media telling us we’re all supposed to be great cooks, have great style, be great in bed, be the best mothers, speak seven languages, and be able to understand derivatives. And we don’t really have women we’re modeling after, so we’re all looking for how to do this.
Jamie Lee Curtis
I was supposed to be having the time of my life.
Sylvia Plath
I find, surprisingly, that actors are liberated in their work if there’s stuff going on around them, because they can’t think too much about who they’re supposed to be.
Michel Gondry
I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not supposed to be married.
Gregg Allman
Jamie Oliver’s lunch is soup, half a papaya with lime, ciabatta with mozzarella and prosciutto. The dear boy is not sharing the same planet as the rest of us. Is this lunacy supposed to be a practical suggestion for a harassed housewife trying to drag her children off to school?
Terry Wogan
We were all born to “be somebody,” look deep inside your heart to find out who and what you are supposed to be.
Robert Cheeke
I do what I do because there’s nothing else for me to do. This is what I’m supposed to be doing.
Kim Coles
What are you two doing flirting with this nerd? I told you, you are supposed to be in charge of the 50 dancing girls I had set up for Miz’s celebration.
Alex Riley
In terms of ‘Seinfeld’, I think there’s lot of reality in a show that’s supposed to be about nothing.
We are supposed to be on the side of goodness in the sense that we need it, not that we are it.
Francis Spufford
You are not behind. You are not lagging. You are not supposed to be somewhere else. You are exactly where you should be. Embrace now and go from there. Don’t think that you have to catch up to something.
Mark Sutton
I feel like when I fight it’s an art, and Art isn’t supposed to be ‘nice’, it isn’t supposed to be liked. It’s supposed to make you feel something.
Ronda Rousey
When you’re in Hollywood, you get sort of jaded about what you think the sense of humor of Hollywood is supposed to be, so you can’t think outside the box.
Diedrich Bader
Sometimes I don’t feel like the person that I’m supposed to be. I don’t feel like I deserve any of this.
Mena Suvari
Lately, they were always reassuring each other that nothing was wrong; and probably it was true—life wasn’t supposed to be incredible, after all. Life wasn’t some incredible movie. Life was all the movies, ever, happening at once. There were good ones, bad ones, some went straight to video.
Tao Lin
In music, you collaborate with people. It’s supposed to be a mutually beneficial thing.
Kid Cudi
I have so much residue crap in my hair from years and years of not washing it and not having any sense of personal hygiene whatsoever. Even today, I go into these things where I’m supposed to be this sexy guy or whatever, and I’m literally asking, ‘If I get plumes of dandruff on me, can you just brush it off?’
Robert Pattinson
Americans have only the dimmest notion of what their constitutional freedoms are – and what it took to get them…[and] the willingness to surrender what we’re supposed to be fighting for is a recurring part of our history.
Nat Hentoff
I really love “Bridget Jones’s Diary” – and I love the book, too. You wonder how it ever got made into a movie. She’s supposed to be chubby, and two of the hottest guys ever are straight-up fighting over her?
Mindy Kaling
Gays being gay is wrong. Two women can’t produce a baby, two men can’t produce a baby, so it’s not how it’s supposed to be. … I don’t believe in gay marriages. I don’t believe in being gay.
Carl Everett
Nothing was quite like it was supposed to be.
Maureen Johnson
Daughters are supposed to be friends to their mothers in their old age.
Paullina Simons
I think I found it difficult though to keep a straight face when we were actually working and I wasn’t supposed to be laughing.
Mandy Moore
I think sometimes women who are supposed to be strong are also written as mean and vindictive.
Yancy Butler
Eric understands that the world is rarelythe way it is supposed to be. And he knows that, given the chance, we don’t have to wait for someone to make messes of our lives. We do a good enough job, ourselves.
Jodi Picoult
The goal in life is to discover that you’ve always been where you were supposed to be.
Aldous Huxley
Music really isn’t supposed to be perfect.  It’s all about people relating to each other and doing something that’s really from the soul.  It must come from the soul.
Tom Petty
I have fun every day. The game is supposed to be fun.
Manny Ramirez
Isn’t it supposed to be like this?” He smiled. “The glory of first love, and all that. It’s incredible, isn’t it, the difference between reading about something, seeing it in the pictures, and experiencing it?” “Very different,” I agreed. “More forceful than I’d imagined.
Stephenie Meyer
Almost all politicians drive me insane. These people are supposed to be looking after us. What I hate is that we don’t speak up enough as a nation and take on the government.
Ray Winstone
Movie stars are supposed to be healthy. They’re kept happy and nutritionally together.
Courtney Love
I’m supposed to be a christian, but most days I don’t feel like I can even presume to say that about myself any longer. I have a lot of mad left over. When I can’t sleep, I think about the other people who didn’t care how much pain and trouble they caused me. And I think about how good I’d feel if they died.
Charlaine Harris
I sort of have a dark, twisted, offbeat way of writing, which I see coming up in my kids. It’s funny, on Halloween, one of my daughters said, “Halloween isn’t supposed to be happy, dad, it’s supposed to be dark. ” No smiling pumpkins at the Sixx household!
Nikki Sixx
Socialism destroys everywhere one thing – diversity. Everything is supposed to be best, and as we know, best things are always in shortage. I remind once more that for reds “best” is what they consider “best” for us, and not what we like.
Janusz Korwin-Mikke
I suppose he’s making a real fashion statement, but this is high school. You’re not supposed to be real. You’re supposed to be enough like everyone else to get through and out into the waiting world.
Elizabeth Scott
Romance is thinking about your significant other, when you are supposed to be thinking about something else.
Nicholas Sparks
And who are you supposed to be? the King of snot-nosed delinquents?
Michael Buckley
My students often say, “My roommate read this story and really liked it”, and it’s hard to convince them that there are things wrong with it. I say, “well, people who love you want you to be happy. But I’m your professor and I’m supposed to be teaching you something.”
Joyce Carol Oates
If I’m looking really intense, it’s not because I’m trying to be mystical. It’s because I’m thinking ‘[Dagnabit], that was supposed to be a 7th chord’.
Ed Robertson
Whenever an opportunity comes your way, challenge yourself to first thank God and then quickly follow up with the question, “God, who else is supposed to be blessed by this connection or opportunity?
Lysa TerKeurst
I’m always sure of what I do,” he said. “Sometimes I was just never sure there was supposed to be a happy ending.
Maggie Stiefvater
Social Security was always supposed to be basically, in theory, an insurance program where you pay in and then you get out.
Judd Gregg
There is no normal. I’ve never met a normal person. The concept is flawed. It implies that there is only one way people are supposed to be, and that can’t possible be true. Human experience is far too varied.
Maureen Johnson
But ‘Cuban Linx’ was a project that really needed to come, and I really wanted to get it off my chest because I know that the fans were really skeptical about it, like ‘is this really gonna be what it’s supposed to be?’ So once everybody caught it for what it was and everybody was happy, that’s mission accomplished for me.
I am your brother. I was supposed to be your brother before either of us was born. Karmic debt. It appears I was Vlad the Impaler or Genghis Khan in a past life.
Rob Thurman
People who have had power, when they become powerless, are really tragic…. We just allow ourselves to be conditioned by a society so we become as important as we’re supposed to be.
Maggie Kuhn
The stealth bomber is supposed to be a big deal. It flies in undetected, bombs, then flies away. Hell, I’ve been doing that all my life.
Bob Hope
I was supposed to be too short to play college volleyball.
Summer Altice
In solitude, at last, we’re able to let God define us the way we are always supposed to be defined—by relationship: the I-thou relationship, in relation to a Presence that demands nothing of us but presence itself. Not performance but presence
Richard Rohr
It was fashionable, youre supposed to be a married lady, so I did.
Dionne Warwick
Consider the “new” woman. She’s trying to be Pollyanna Borgia, clearly a conflict of interest. She’s supposed to be a ruthless winner at work and a bundle of nurturing sweetness at home.
Rita Mae Brown
Perhaps I’m hiding from myself. Perhaps I don’t want to be what I’m supposed to be. Or perhaps I don’t want to keep living the life I already started to live.
Orson Scott Card
High school sucked. It was a universal truth, and whoever said these were supposed to be the best years of your life was probably drunk or delusional.
Kami Garcia
If today were half as good as tomorrow is supposed to be, it would probably be twice as good as yesterday was.
Norman Ralph Augustine
People were never meant to be idols. We aren’t supposed to be worshipped. Only God deserves that kind of praise.
Karen Kingsbury
I thought it was supposed to be impossible to sneak up on you. Eyes of a hawk and ears of a wolf and all.
Kristin Cashore
Black women are supposed to be ‘strong,’ but the burden of carrying our race and carrying our families adds the pressure.
Aunjanue Ellis
Remember before nineteen seventy two Olympic Games I was total skinny, I was small, very strong, they may be don’t like to see a gymnastics like that. I don’t know but, gymnastics, might. Nineteen seventy two supposed to be change somewhere.
Olga Korbut
There are so many images pushed at women and so many ideas of what you’re supposed to be. I think there’s too much of this superwoman, this woman with a bottom like two billiard balls. There’s no real celebration of just being a person.
Helen Fielding
I’ve found time can heal most anything and you just might find who you’re supposed to be.
Taylor Swift
I work really, really hard and it’s challenging going through all of those time zones and having to be awake when you’re supposed to be asleep. I literally fly more than a pilot.
Miranda Kerr
Genres do exist because frequent users of any large bookstore can instantly tell what any piece of fiction is supposed to be about by its title, its cover and its location in the shop.
John Clute
… You get surreal numbers by playing games. I used to feel guilty in Cambridge that I spent all day playing games, while I was supposed to be doing mathematics. Then, when I discovered surreal numbers, I realized that playing games IS math.
John Horton Conway
When punk rock came along, the one thing you were not supposed to be was musical.
Nick Lowe
If it’s zero degrees outside today and it’s supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?
Steven Wright
Women were supposed to be the enigmas, but men? Moody, brooding bastards, the lot of them. A woman with PMS had nothing on a man. Where women might get hormonal once a month, men suffered their own brand of PMS on a daily basis. – Faith
Maya Banks
Manhattan was a no-man’s land, empty, an unofficial demilitarized zone between Partials and the human survivors. No one was supposed to be here, not because it was forbidden but because it was dangerous. If something happened to you out here, either side could get you, and neither side could protect you.
Dan Wells
I am convinced that he loved Eva [Braun] and there is absolutely no question of her complete adoration of him. He was away all the time because his position demanded it. She couldn’t travel with him because their relationship was supposed to be secret.
Gretl Braun
Perhaps a normal man is supposed to be stupid-how do we know? Perhaps it’s even very beautiful.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
In my opinion it is a grave error for women to feel that they must move only in women’s interests… . What, after all, would we think if men all got together and kept doing things that were supposed to be in the interest of men?
Millicent Fenwick
I knew my time would come I just had to stay focused and disciplined and if you work hard good things happen. I am right where I am supposed to be.
Chris Algieri
Jeb Bush was supposed to be the establishment candidate, but he didn’t catch on. And the extraordinary thing about this Republican primary is that the establishment, moderate wing of the party has sidelined itself. They’re not coalescing around one candidate as they have in the past.
Mara Liasson
What bothers me is when music becomes entertainment. Of course, music is supposed to be entertaining, but go back to any period of time – music had a cultural significance on different levels, whether it was folk music, it was the news of the village, or it had to do with the rites of passage.
Billy Corgan
Patrick Henry did not say, ‘Give me absolutely safety or give me death.’ America is supposed to be about freedom.
John Stossel
I’m still learning. I’ve never done a digital project before. And I’m pretty sure I did things to the software that weren’t supposed to be done.
Don Hertzfeldt
I’m 42 and the age of a guy who has kids, so I guess I’m playing right where I’m supposed to be. I’m comfortable with that, but in the same breath I’d do something edgy. If someone came to me and offered me an edgy and funny story, then I’d do it.
Eddie Murphy
When alternative music – which is supposed to be the standard-bearer of where white rock is headed – becomes either too cute or too manufactured, that’s just really not good.
Billy Corgan
The thing about all good horror movies is that the fans expect a couple of inside jokes. Maybe I’m supposed to be saying how terrified I was while making it, but it was really fun.
Margot Kidder
The capitalist system is about taking from the Earth and from the other great commodity, labour. What’s happening with this system is that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer, and the only way out of it is supposed to be growth. But growth is debt. It’s going to make the situation worse.
Vivienne Westwood
How much money you get, depends on lots of extraneous things. It depends on how good you are at turning poetry into a marketable product, which is something it was never supposed to be. That’s why many people suppose that the better the poet you are the lower your income should be, and that’s probably true.
Robert Bringhurst
Tequila?” I asked him, skeptically. “Are you sure on that one? I thought the base for a love potion was supposed to be champagne.” “Champagne, tequila, what’s the difference, so long as it’ll lower her inhibitions?” Bob said. “Uh. I’m thinking it’s going to get us a, um, sleazier result.
Jim Butcher
Hell, I’m an old man. I’m 70 years old. I’m supposed to be sitting on a rocking chair watching the sunset.
M. Emmet Walsh
An environment-based education movement–at all levels of education–will help students realize that school isn’t supposed to be a polite form of incarceration, but a portal to the wider world.

Harriet Beecher Stowe
My fellow citizens, the American Presidency is not supposed to be a journey of personal discovery.
Sarah Palin
Rock n’ roll is about attitude and rebellion. It’s supposed to be fun and spontaneous.
I picked up this book called Blue Mountain, supposed to be a really good book on the Civil War.
Max Lucado
I was raised by all women. I had no men in my life; it was my mom, my sister, and my grandmother. I’ve never identified as a man. I’ve always either felt like a boy or something else. I feel really uncomfortable thinking that, technically, I’m supposed to be a man, because I don’t feel like one.
Zachary Cole Smith
If you are sitting there waiting for someone to tell you how wonderful you are, you’ll never get anything done. Women need to get over being women. I’m tired of that socialization of women; that we are always supposed to be sitting around pleasing somebody.
Nikki Giovanni
I don’t *ever* write about real people. Art is supposed to be better than that. If you want a slice of life, look out the window.
Barbara Kingsolver
I’ve always been sort of confused by the trajectory my life has taken. I was supposed to be on an assembly line building Buicks.

James Surowiecki
Relationships unlock certain parts of who we are supposed to be.
Donald Miller
I can remember hearing the theme tune to Dallas when I was supposed to be in bed. I would sneak down and try to watch it through the banisters. My mum loved that show.
Ashley Madekwe
We’re supposed to be the people who make culture, not decorate culture.
James Victore
Spending time with you just feels…right,somehow. Easy, like the way it’s supposed to be. Like it is with my parents. They’re just comfortable together, and I remember growing up thinking that one day I wanted to have that, too.
Nicholas Sparks
I think so many people give us ideas of what we are. I think as women especially, because we’re sensitive by nature, we’re more vulnerable, we absorb other people’s ideas about what we’re supposed to think or who we’re supposed to be and how we’re supposed to act.
Gwyneth Paltrow
Being an artist is supposed to be a scam, not a career.
Wade Guyton
Write every day; never give up; it’s supposed to be difficult; try to find some pleasure and reward in the act of writing, because you can’t look for praise from editors, readers, or critics. In other words, tips that are much easier to give than to take.
J. R. Moehringer
I leave my house all the time! But I’m not at all the Hollywood parties. I’m grown, and where else am I supposed to be? I’m supposed to be home.
Eddie Murphy
Pop music was supposed to be a flash in the pan, but here we are 50 years later and it means something to us, and it always will do. It’s incredibly important.
Paul Weller
Life is not supposed to be this calcified experience where you don’t change.
Jamie Lee Curtis
I was so tired, wasn’t having fun any more, and wasn’t sure if I wanted to do this any longer. So I turned my phone off and sorted my head out. It was the opposite of a breakdown really, it was a break-up – I got rid of all the idiots, realised my job was supposed to be fun, and got on with my life.
Simon Cowell
A good girl is supposed to be very quiet
Ziauddin Yousafzai
It’s supposed to be fun, the man says ‘Play Ball’ not ‘Work Ball’ you know.
Willie Stargell
One of the things that I think is such a constant in country music is that the song is so much a story. I believe it is supposed to be based around a story.
Suzy Bogguss
I’m not trying to be like what I thought an NBA player is supposed to be growing up.
Kevin Durant
Institutions do all the things that are supposed to be bad. They impede personal exploration. They enforce conformity. But they often save us from our weaknesses and give meaning to life.
David Brooks
Oh, there’s going to be debate because you’re dealing with the Bible and religion is supposed to be separate from state and that to me is already a conflict before it even hits the gay issue.
Pam Grier
The irony is that what was supposed to be a great vulnerability of Hillary Clinton , which the Iraq war vote which she has acknowledged was a terrible mistake, has lent an aura of strength in a funny way.
Joe Conason
Bettman is an asshole. A frikkin asshole. I think he’s ruined the game of hockey. He’s supposed to be impartial. He’s supposed to speak for the good of the league, but in my opinion, he’s strictly behind the owners. Those 1996 rule changes are a joke
Bob Probert
I just know that I’m a fan of all different kinds of genres. You’re supposed to be free doing music, and that’s how I feel.
Bruno Mars
My stand-up is more like how I am in real life. I don’t really do a character thing in stand-up. It’s just a bunch of sentences that are supposed to be funny.
Zach Galifianakis
Animals don’t hate, and we’re supposed to be better than them.
Elvis Presley
But I did have two months off between Loser and the start of Prozac Nation. So, it was supposed to be Jason time, right? My time to enjoy myself away from movies.
Jason Biggs
Canadian is both harder and easier to explain. Nobody knows what it is even supposed to be, let far-out-alone what it actually is.
Judith Merril
Christians are supposed to be evangelicals. And I am. I am evangelical.
Jimmy Carter
I don’t know. How hot is it supposed to be?
Yogi Berra
And make sure you tell daddy That I’m still his little girl Yeah I still feel like I’m where I’m supposed to be But don’t forget to remember me
Carrie Underwood
It isn’t false modesty when I say this, but although I am supposed to be a famous person it doesn’t mean anything to me. I just sit at home and work.
Gyorgy Ligeti
Yeah, but our choices are limited. We choose from a list that they chose for us.” She said. “Well, Choices are supposed to be limited. That’s life” I snapped
Lauren Oliver
Maybe love isn’t supposed to be comfortable. Maybe love is just supposed to be worth it.
Debby Ryan
Whenever the boss has ‘fun’ activities, there’s got to be a parable or a lesson. Employees feel like they’re supposed to be taking notes.
Greg Daniels
We’ve got to get the gun out of the hands of people who are supposed to be on neighborhood watch.
Bill Cosby
I think all actors are supposed to be character actors.
Dennis Farina
Music is supposed to be entertaining and if it touches you emotionally, so much the better. Sometimes you do it to save your own life, not anybody else’s. That’s why I write. I’m not trying to change anybody else’s life or the world, I’m trying to keep from blowing my own brains out. That’s the real point.
Guy Clark
When I was at the age when you were supposed to be glamorous if you were a movie star, I wasn’t.
Jane Fonda
Earmarks are supposed to be bad. But they don’t increase spending.
Todd Tiahrt
As an actor, demonstrating your feelings in front of people is not what you’re supposed to be doing. You’re supposed to hold your emotions and control them, and not show them all over the place.
James Hong
I tend to play in a way that feels natural to me. To me that’s authentic for myself. I play by where I’m led by some sense of where I feel I’m supposed to be.
David Sanborn
This is what customers pay us for – to sweat all these details so it’s easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. We’re supposed to be really good at this. That doesn’t mean we don’t listen to customers, but it’s hard for them to tell you what they want when they’ve never seen anything remotely like it.
Steve Jobs
I had never even thought I’d be an actress – I was supposed to be a lawyer. But the motivation is the same: when you act, you defend a role; you have to be convincing. It’s the same career.
Anne Parillaud
To be an artist of my generation willing to be unhip -artists were supposed to be like cowboys.
Deborah Kass
I think that’s one of the things that has always put me in kind of an odd niche. It’s that all of my understanding of orchestral music is via film, not via classical music like it’s supposed to be. To me it’s the same, it doesn’t make any difference.
Danny Elfman
You’re supposed to be who you are. You’re supposed to make music that is true to you.
Models are there to look like mannequins, not like real people. Art and illusion are supposed to be fantasy.
Grace Jones
She was supposed to be putting her life together right now, and all she could seem to do was throw grenades at it.
Ann Brashares
I grew up in Detroit. I grew up in an environment where you were supposed to be Democrat, where they told you that Republicans were evil people and that they were racist.
Benjamin Carson
Hey, which one of them is supposed to be your boyfriend?” Stark asked me. Even in the terrible shape he was in, he caught my glance with his. His voice was scratchy, and he sounded scarily weak, but his eyes sparkled with humor. I am!” Heath and Erik said together.
P. C. Cast
Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.
BrenГ© Brown
When we’re young we have a very clear vision of how life is supposed to be, and it all seems very neatly packaged.
Andrew Shue
As an actor you’re only supposed to be a lover. I am a romantic hero though I don’t like that tag. With all the hardships, problems, illness, goodness, badness, awards and money… an actor will always be a lover. And a lover makes mistakes. You’ll be silly, nonsensical and stupid.
Shahrukh Khan
The White House belongs to all Americans. It’s supposed to be something we’re proud of.
Nancy Reagan
Is Valentine’s Day a day to make cupcakes with your children? No, Valentine’s is supposed to be a day about romantic love.
Ayelet Waldman
It’s really not so good to have time. Rush, scramble, desperation, this missed, that left behind, those others too big to fit into such a small space–that’s the way life was meant to be. You’re supposed to be too late for some things. Don’t worry about it.
Peter S. Beagle
I have to maintain the weight. This is the second show [Aladdin] that I have done where I am not allowed to technically lose any weight. I’m supposed to be big. It’s impressive to see someone of my size.
James Monroe Iglehart
Just as the seasons change and the honey bees pollinate the planet and make honey, we are also doing exactly what we are supposed to be doing. We also are apart of nature, certainly not separate from nature.
Bryan Kest
I can lick my elbow. I know that’s supposed to be impossible, but I can do it!
Kate Voegele
Often we’re recreating what we think we’re supposed to be as human beings. What we’ve been told we’re supposed to be, instead of who we authentically are. The key about the creation of full self-expression is to be authentically who you are, to project that.
James Cromwell
Anything I sing is supposed to be genuine. It’s not supposed to be make-believe or I’m making something for the crowd to jump or to hold up their hands.
Wayne Wonder
If you’re single, then I’m single?” What’s that supposed to be? Lyrics to a pop song?

I can’t believe this night. I was supposed to be applauded and instead, I’m ruined. I swear to God in heaven if I ever see that man again, I will commit murder. (Tory) Well, if you need help moving the body, you know where Kim and I live. (Pam)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
Imagine filling a college with the first 1,000 students to get perfect SATs. Whatever the racial composition of that class would be, the notion seems absurd because we know that college in America is supposed to be about creating citizens and leaders in a diverse nation.
Eric Liu
I hit rock bottom when I was doing “The Brady Brides.” I was supposed to be at the studio, screen testing to pick the guy that would play my husband. At this time, I had been up for three days doing coke and was playing solitaire in my closet.
Maureen McCormick
You go through different stages when you’re working on the music in film. At least, I do. You have a temp score, so you have music from other people, usually from other movies, to give you a sense of what the mood is supposed to be, what the atmosphere is.
Duncan Jones
But a priest’s life is not supposed to be well-rounded; it is supposed to be one-pointed – a compass, not a weathercock.
Aldous Huxley
You have to forget about what other people say, when you’re supposed to die, or when you’re supposed to be loving. You have to forget about all these things.
Jimi Hendrix
…it is in the nature of original contemporary art to present itself as a bad risk. And we the public…should be proud of being in this predicament, because nothing else would seem to us quite true to life; and art, after all, is supposed to be a mirror of life.
Leo Steinberg
In my experience, when I went to school, and especially in after-school, and during breaks, a lot of people wanted to sit down and play chess up till a certain age when it was not supposed to be cool anymore and people wanted to do other things.
Magnus Carlsen
If I don’t stay creative and if I don’t stay in the studio and keep writing and recording, I get kind of depressed. I can’t quite remember what I’m supposed to be doing with myself.
Kenny Loggins
I used to get so worried that if a scene didn’t go a certain way, then it was horrible. But then I realized that it was better to give the director options in the editing room than just being locked into how it’s supposed to be.
Katie Holmes
It is finally when you let go of what people expect you to be and people’s perceptions of you that you’re able to be the version of yourself that you’re supposed to be – like in God’s eyes. It doesn’t matter if you’re half crazy, or eccentric, or whatever it is – that you have to be true to who you were born to be.
Gwyneth Paltrow
I think every artist that you like, or even artists that have defined their own times, they’re definitely looking to the past as a starting place. It’s just about how you infuse your own personality, your own message, and your own ideas into it. The record is supposed to be really sensual and sexy.
If democracy is control by the people, as it is supposed to be, it is the right form of government. I believe in a complete democracy – individual, political, social, economic. If we really had that, which we don’t now, it would be in harmony with divine purpose.
Peace Pilgrim
I’m most in my element on tour, with a gig that day, like today. I’m on the road where I am supposed to be. I will be where I’m supposed to be at nighttime, on stage, in front of people, doing my thing.
Henry Rollins
Life is supposed to be a series of peaks and valleys. The secret is to keep the valleys from becoming Grand Canyons.

Kevin Hart
I think that art is supposed to be ahead of the times.
Anna Deavere Smith
Over time I began to realize that the level of cinema criticism in the last part of XX century in the United States was pretty low. The institution itself is not what it’s supposed to be, and I realized that I didn’t need to take that seriously.
George Lucas
Bottom line: God will not allow any person to keep you from your destiny. They may be bigger, stronger, or more powerful, but God knows how to shift things around and get you to where you’re supposed to be.
Joel Osteen
Television was supposed to be a national park. (Instead) it has become a money machine… It’s a commodity now, just like pork bellies.
Fred W. Friendly
Sometimes you’re pushing and what you want to do is not coming with ease; doors are not opening. A lot of times we’re pushing against resistance. If one looks closely, there is often a message in that resistance: “Wait a minute, maybe it’s not what you’re supposed to be doing.”
Farrah Gray
In some cases, inventions prohibit innovation because we’re so caught up in playing with the technology, we forget about the fact that it was supposed to be important.
Dean Kamen
Life’s supposed to be about making the path a little gentler for those traveling behind you.
Reba McEntire
We are supposed to be the children of Seth; but Seth is too much of an effete nonentity to deserve ancestral regard. No, we are the sons of Cain, and with violence can be associated the attacks on sound, stone, wood and metal that produced civilization.
Anthony Burgess
There’s no chivalry in culture any more. Sometimes you meet someone who everyone says is polite and you’re like, ‘Wow,’ but then it’s like, ‘Hang on, isn’t everyone supposed to be polite?’
It feels like it is a daily work and an ongoing task to undo all of the f – – g programming that I have had all my life about who I am supposed to be and how I’m supposed to look and that I’m supposed to win. It’s a daily deconstruction of all that bullshit.
Amanda Palmer
. . . but there’s a restraining order in place.’ She speaks slowly, choosing her words carefully. ‘I’m not supposed to be this close to you.’ You were never supposed to be this close to me,’ I say, and I have no idea why.
Barry Lyga
There are no road signs to help navigate. And, in fact, no one has yet determined which side of the road we’re supposed to be on.
Steve Case
I knew what love was supposed to be: obsession with undertones of nausea.
Margaret Atwood
Most of us spend so much time thinkingВ about where we have been or where we are supposed toВ be going that we have a hard time recognizing where weВ actually are.
Barbara Brown Taylor
I’d really love to meet the guy I’m supposed to be. I’d hire him in a second.
Lee Iacocca
I’ve always played every amp I’ve ever had full up, because rock and roll is supposed to be played loud. Also, that’s how you get your sustain.
Ritchie Blackmore
Being veterinarians, we’re not supposed to be afraid of any animals. And I’m afraid of spiders. They creep me out the way they move. They got hair and saliva. That’s wrong. A bug shouldn’t have hair on it.
Kevin Fitzgerald
She began to feel like the plastic doll she had been named after, without even a hole where her mouth was supposed to be.
Francesca Lia Block
It’s one of those places that are supposed to be very sophisticated and all, and the phonies are coming in the window.
J. D. Salinger
Jason Bourne is supposed to be really sneaky and spry, but as soon as he walks by, everybody pulls out their cell phones and starts recording. That level of fame is wild to see.
Ato Essandoh
Economists have put themselves in a position where what they are doing is supposed to be impossible to understand for outsiders, so they dont even talk – sometimes not even with their girlfriend or boyfriend or friends – about what they are doing.
Thomas Piketty
Is anyone who’s supposed to be dead actually dead?
Karen Marie Moning
Life is supposed to be fun! When you’re having fun, you feel great and you receive great things! Having fun brings the life you want, and taking things too seriously brings a life you have to take seriously.
Rhonda Byrne
Yeah, the main goal when I’m writing [movie scripts] is to entertain myself. It’s supposed to be funny, but then a funny idea can be turned into something else.
Quentin Dupieux
In China, it was always said that a double-digit rate of growth would be dangerous. Now, the country has a growth rate of 6.9 percent and suddenly that is supposed to be a catastrophe for the global economy.
Wolfgang Schauble
When I was a kid, I wanted to be a boy. I really had gender issues. I really thought I was supposed to be a boy. I used to sneak into my dad’s room and put on a suit, drink a cocktail, and pretend to smoke a cigarette.
Jane Lynch
And you will believe in love And all that it’s supposed to be But just until the fish start to smell And you’re struck down by a hammer.
Rufus Wainwright
Genius is supposed to be a power of producing excellences which are put of the reach of the rules of art: a power which no precepts can teach, and which no industry can acquire.
Joshua Reynolds
There is a question whether faith can or is supposed to be emotionally satisfying. I must say that the thought of everyone lolling about in an emotionally satisfying faith is repugnant to me. I believe that we are ultimately directed Godward but that this journey is often impeded by emotion
Flannery O’Connor
Everything that happens is supposed to be And it’s all pre-determined, can’t change your destiny Guess I’ll just keep moving, someday maybe I’ll get to where I’m going
Conor Oberst
I think that one of the things about music is it’s supposed to be spontaneous, it’s supposed to be real human beings bouncing off of each other whether its from the stage or to the audience, or jamming with friends.
Tod Machover
I wasn’t supposed to make it out of Detroit. I wasn’t supposed to get a scholarship. I was supposed to be [covering] kicks the rest of my life. But here I am. I’m a man playing with the house’s money, and that’s a dangerous man.
Bart Scott
Now we have hands-free phones, so you can focus on the thing you’re really supposed to be doing. Chances are, if you need both of your hands to do something, your brain should be in on it too.
Ellen DeGeneres
Abstraction and representation are supposed to be going down two very different paths, one sociological and the other aesthetic.
Kerry James Marshall
This is who I want to be in the world. This is who I think we are supposed to be, people who help call forth human beings from deep inside hopelessness.
Anne Lamott
Sacrifice is a part of life. It’s supposed to be. It’s not something to regret. It’s something to aspire to.
Mitch Albom
I don’t understand how IMDB works. I don’t know who logs in the information. I’ve checked it a couple times and saw (something he was supposed to be listed in) that I wasn’t in there, and thought, “Well, I’m not gonna put it in there”.
Ken Marino
I’ve always thought the most patriotic thing you could do in a democracy is to speak the truth as you see it. And that’s what we’re supposed to be about in America. Freedom of speech.
Barbara Boxer
All poetry is supposed to be instructive but in an unnoticeable manner; it is supposed to make us aware of what it would be valuable to instruct ourselves in; we must deduce the lesson on
our own, just as with life.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
When you’re younger, you feel like work is work and relationships are supposed to be easy. As you get older, you realize you have to work at relationships to make them sustainable.

Ed Vargo
Young filmmakers are supposed to be the young turks that advance the current state of filmmaking ideas.
Reginald Hudlin
This may be a dream, but I’ll say it anyway: I was supposed to be married last year, and I bought a gown. When I meet Nelson Mandela, I shall put on this gown and have the train of it removed and put aside, and kiss the ground that he walks on and then kiss his feet.
Nina Simone
Because we grew up surrounded by big dramatic story arcs in books and movies, we think our lives are supposed to be filled with huge ups and downs. So people pretend there is drama where there is none.
Kurt Vonnegut
It’s supposed to be automatic but actually you have to press this button.
John Brunner
Everybody seems to have given up hope of trying. I haven’t. It isn’t easy and it isn’t supposed to be, but I’m accomplishing something. How many people give up a lot to do something good. I’m sure we would have found a cure for cancer 20 years ago if we had really tried
Terry Fox
I’m just trying to find some secret places in the human brain because I think movies tend to be too rational sometimes. Everything is supposed to make sense. Everything is supposed to be logical.
Quentin Dupieux
They shaved my head, eyebrows. This is not a sci-fi picture. It’s not a fantasy picture. You’re dealing with something that’s supposed to be in reality. But we had a genius makeup artist.
Rick Yune
I was an adult when I was supposed to be a kid. So now I’m an adult and I’m acting like a kid.
Miley Cyrus
The new nuns don’t know that they’re ‘supposed’ to be meek and submissive, and so in many ways they believe they can do anything, because they’ve seen the earlier ones do it. In this way, there’s nothing for them to doubt.
Tenzin Palmo
I’m supposed to be this complete slapper, that’s my reputation.
Sienna Miller
CEOs of large corporations earn 400 times what their workers make. That is not what America is supposed to be about.
Bernie Sanders
We did a gig at the Marquee and we were supposed to be paid five pounds but we never got it, and it cost us something like 10 pounds in petrol to get there to do it. So what we did was steal some equipment from The Marquee.
Andy Partridge
I think most kids have a sense that it’s not supposed to be this way. You’re not supposed to hate Monday, or be happy when you don’t have to go to school. School should be something that you love. Life should be something that you love.
Charles Eisenstein
There are certain things men will never understand about women. We’ll never get it. And you’re supposed to be nice to them. Because they can hurt you.
Mel Gibson
I had to lie so much about sex, first when I was 15, because I wasn’t supposed to be having it. And then when I got older, I lied to everybody I was having sex with, so I could have sex with other people.
Cybill Shepherd
I don’t focus on the critics. Everyone who is making any difference in any field has critics. As long as I feel like I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing, then I don’t worry about it.
Joel Osteen
I think comedians get too much credit or too much criticism for the style of comedy they do, and they generally do the style of comedy that works for them. […] There’s no kind of shrewd calculation going into the type of standup we all do. It’s like David Cross is supposed to be doing the David Cross’ type of standup.
Jim Gaffigan
We can’t dispose of the everydayness of people’s struggles. We have to build a world that is ultimately supposed to be, very simply, everybody doing what they are happiest doing.
Eli Russell Linnetz
Did you ever look into the personalities of male cooks, Army, logging camp, etc.? They’re all supposed to be crazy, incomprehensible, contemptible. And angry. The act of feeding adult males seems to have strange personality effects.
James Tiptree Jr.
Music is a safe type of high. It’s more the way it was supposed to be. That’s where highness came, I guess, from anyway. It’s nothing but rhythm and motion.
Jimi Hendrix
I played violin from when I was about eight to thirteen, so I could read a little bit, but if you put a piece of music in front of me now, I would probably know the notes, but not the timing, how they’re supposed to be played, and I just don’t know how to read chords. If I’d stuck with it, I’d probably have more jobs.
Petra Haden
Wherever you write is supposed to be a little bit of a refuge, a place where you can get away from the world. The more closed in you are, the more you’re forced back on your own imagination.
Stephen King
We live in a world where everybody’s supposed to be cool and act tough and put up fronts, and everybody is so cynical.
James Gunn
Whenever you wonder about yourself, look up at the stars swirling around in the heavens and just realize how tiny and puny they are. They’re supposed to be gigantic explosions and they’re just these insignificant little dots. If you step back from things far enough you realize how important and powerful you are.
Alan Alda
Bette Davis, she was so brilliant and one of my heroes, but she worked a ton, and then she didn’t get All About Eve [1950] until the last minute. Claudette Colbert was supposed to be Margo Channing, but then she broke her back and couldn’t do it. That allowed Davis to play her age.
Winona Ryder
I’m not supposed to talk about the snail. The snail is, well, congratulations to whoever noticed it. It’s supposed to be a thing where you gotta look for it in every episode, and it’s there three times in every episode.
Steve Burns

Tom Glazer

Frank Murphy
A nickname is not supposed to be your only name. I miss Jennifer a bit.
Jennifer Lopez
Class is entirely intangible, and the way it affects things isn’t subject to scientific analysis, and it’s not supposed to be real but it’s pervasive and powerful. See; just like magic.
Jo Walton
We don’t need to be perfect. We’re not supposed to be perfect; we’re supposed to be complete. And you can’t be complete if you’re trying to be perfect.
Jane Fonda
The wildlings seemed to think Ygritte a great beauty because of her hair; red hair was rare among the free folk, and those who had it were said to be kissed by fire, which was supposed to be lucky.
George R. R. Martin
According to the Church, one of the key attributes of sainthood is death. You have to die first. So, I’ll agree already (that) I might not have all the attributes that usually that the Church looks for when canonizing somebody because I’m supposed to be dead already.
Lino Rulli
If you come over to my house, I’ve had a lot of people be like ‘Hey…did you mean to put these in the dishwasher?’ And I’m like, no they’re actually supposed to be in the freezer because I use them to get rid of under-eye bags when I wake up early in the morning.
Shay Mitchell
The Internet was supposed to be the great equalizer.
Gina Bianchini
It could seem like you are losing something right now, but do not be fooled. This is simply a turnaround orchestrated by your soul. Let it go. Release it. If it was not supposed to be removing itself from you now, it would not be doing so.
Neale Donald Walsch
I am sometimes referred to as Excuse Me in an annoyed tone of voice, because apparently I am in the way. I am so sorry. I am supposed to be some sort of mind reader, I guess. I am moving out of the way now as slowly as I possibly can. I am doing this and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Demetri Martin
Me personally, I’m a guy who it took a long time to figure out what I’m supposed to be doing. I relate to a lot of that finding oneself a little later in the game, or being thrown a curve later in the game.
Kurt Sutter
That’s what I mean about Catholicism – your sexual life is supposed to be dead if you’re a good Catholic. That’s wrong. It’s human nature to be sexual, so why would God want you to deny your human nature?
Madonna Ciccone
Feel the underlying meaning of the teachings that are espoused by me or anyone else. The word’s don’t mean much. Words are supposed to be catalysts for higher states of attention. That is where the action is.
Frederick Lenz
This is the fourth age, the Kali Yuga, and it’s a time of great darkness. At the end of this age, there’s supposed to be a cosmic dissolution and then life begins anew. It’s a wonderful cycle of rebirth.
Frederick Lenz
Impulsively, I lean forward and kiss him, stopping his word. This is probably overdue anyway since he’s right, we are supposed to be madly in love.
Suzanne Collins
The fidelity question is difficult for me. Society has made us believe we’re supposed to be monogamous when we’re not killer whales, or whatever the monogamous species is.
Rachel Hunter
We are supposed to be liberated in America but if our President [George W. Bush] had his way, we wouldn’t be educated about sex at all. Every woman would have six children and we wouldn’t be able to have abortions.
Scarlett Johansson
Ours is supposed to be a government in which classes and distinctions melt into a harmonious whole. Until we reach this ideal of government, we will be a distracted, contentious people.
Timothy Thomas Fortune
Being brave isn’t supposed to be easy.
Sam Berns
I sometimes wonder if it is just me, or if there are other women who figure out where they are supposed to be by going nowhere.
Jodi Picoult
Hip Hop was supposed to be this new thing that had no boundaries and was so different to everyday music. As long as it has soul to it, hip hop can live on.
Tupac Shakur
The average politician was crooked. That was my ambition, to be a crooked politician. I’d see them in these restaurants, and they’d all hold these conferences. I’d see politicians who were supposed to be on opposite sides of issues all together at one table.
Jack Kirby
But I rather thought–I mean, I heard you’d killed Balder the Fair.” “I never did,” snapped Loki crossly. “Well, no one ever proved I did. What happened to the presumption of innocence? Besides, he was supposed to be invulnerable. Was it my fault that he wasn’t?
Joanne Harris
I’m angry that the private sector, which is supposed to be in charge of running gasoline into the Valley, doesn’t have its act together to deal with a critical situation, so now the public sector has to step in.
Janet Napolitano
There’s no question that I have always wanted to be mayor. I know I am strategically not supposed to be saying that, but I don’t care.
Angela Alioto
A lot of times it’s an asset to not know everything about everything… A lot of really great, innovative things have happened when people just didn’t know it wasn’t supposed to be possible.
Drew Houston
Second of all, I don’t think Wall Street is doing what it’s supposed to be doing, even after the shameful performance of the last two years. They’re are not allocating capital.
Howard Dean
We indeed did and do own our own minds and bodies, and anything from church or state that limits that is inappropriate and inconsistent with the … society that America is supposed to be.

My mother was a domestic goddess and Mother Earth figure. She was sweet and placid – just what the perfect wife was supposed to be and I was determined not to be.
Joan Collins
The name was supposed to be ‘Googol,’ which is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeroes. It was before the Google spellchecker existed.

Claire Danes
Being brave isnt supposed to be easy, but its the key to moving forward.
Sam Berns
It’s the nature of hearts to break. It’s in their job description. When a heart is doing what it’s supposed to be doing, it holds nothing back. And sometimes it gets broken.
Geneen Roth
If you know that all is well, you know all you need to know. And if you know life is supposed to be fun, you know more than almost anybody else knows.

Rush Limbaugh
Music is supposed to be an escape, It’s supposed to be somewhere you can go, where you can be yourself, or be whatever you wanna be.
Joel Madden
Whales, like elephants, are so social and intelligent. This hurts me to think of them being transported, put in noisy airplanes, and brought to a horrible concrete pen when they’re supposed to be out in the sea.
Jane Goodall
Cyber Command is supposed to be defending our critical infrastructure at home, but they are spending so much time looking at how to attack networks, how to break systems, and how to turn things off. I don’t think it adds up as representing a defensive team.
Edward Snowden
We’re not completely happy here because we’re not supposed to be!
Rick Warren
I look back on my 20s. It’s supposed to be the prime of your life, the most vital, the most beautiful. But you’re making your critical decisions and sometimes your most critical mistakes.
Ann Brashares
Scientists are supposed to live in ivory towers. Their darkrooms and their vibration-proof benches are supposed to isolate their activities from the disturbances of common life. What they tell us is supposed to be for the ages, not for the next election. But the reality may be otherwise.
Simon LeVay
Writing is about a blank piece of paper and leaving out what’s not supposed to be there.
John Prine
The media is supposed to be custodians of the facts and watchdogs of government. They have, for the most part, neglected to be either of those things.
Janeane Garofalo
Marriage is all about knowing the ins and outs and the intimate details, and your wife is supposed to be the person you know best. But my brother and I think alike, know everything about one another, and when we get together, we block everything else out. Nothing exists in our world except for us.
Jon Heder
Everybody is supposed to be a part of their own community.
Jill Scott
Making a film that’s supposed to be fun to watch is really hard – that’s the weird irony of it.

The universe is deterministic all right, just like Newton said, I mean it’s trying to be, but the only thing going wrong is people fancying people who aren’t supposed to be in that part of the plan.
Tom Stoppard
Because life doesn’t work that way. You can do everything perfectly. Do everything you think you’re supposed to be doing. Fulfill every expectation that other people may have. And you still won’t get the results you think you deserve. Life is crazy and maddening and often makes no sense.
David Baldacci
I am here now, because I am supposed to be here. And I guess when it is my time to cross over there, I will be over there. I am not religious, but I am spiritual, honey. My day is coming!
NeNe Leakes
It’s supposed to be a good thing that he’s got this dialogue started. To me, I think, I just took away something bad from it, because, apparently he had to do this not to convince them of anything. To educate them.
Bill Maher
It’s about time! It’s supposed to be a ritual, not a marathon.
Karen Chance
I would go to radio stations and they were supposed to be interviewing me and playing my record and they would say, We’re playing too many women right now, we can’t play your record.

Cecelia Ahern
We really try not to spend too much time thinking about what we’re supposed to be a punk band, or whatever. We do the exact same thing today that we been doing for years and years and years.

They say you get nauseous in a green screen room, but I haven’t yet. It’s a little odd playing pretend with props and monitors that we’re supposed to be watching, but I’ll get used to it.
Laura Vandervoort
Am I supposed to be a man? Am I supposed to say, ‘It’s okay, I don’t mind, I don’t mind’? Well, I mind! I mind big time! And you know what the worst part is? I never learned to read!
Wayne Campbell
A sculptor is supposed to be a dull dog anyway, so why should he not break out in colour sometimes, and in my case I’d as soon be hanged for a sheep as a lamb.
Jacob Epstein
America is supposed to be given over to ugliness. There are a good many ugly things there and the ugliest are the most pretentious.
Goldwin Smith
If you feel like there’s something out there that you’re supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it.
Wanda Sykes
But there’s no way round it-commercial success is a mark of failure for a graffiti artist. We’re not supposed to be embraced in that way. When you look at how society rewards so many of the wrong people, it’s hard not to view financial reimbursement as a badge of self-serving mediocrity.
We’re always supposed to be happy and positive. There’s something about letting yourself slip into that vulnerable space because you can really feel things there. It helps you grow as a person. I tend to enjoy being in a vulnerable space, in a weird way.
Tristan Prettyman
St. Augustine wrote that basically it is not possible to understand what was being described in Genesis. It was not intended as a science textbook. It was intended as a description of who God was, who we are and what our relationship is supposed to be with God.
Richard Dawkins
Pornography is pornography, what is there to see? Movies are attempting to destroy something that’s supposed to be the most beautiful thing a man and a woman can have by making it cheap and common. It’s what you don’t see that’s attractive.
Nancy Reagan
One symptom of his (Hitler) being strangely at variance with reality, or the nature of things,was his gift for wearing inappropriate of ludicrous clothing…When he was supposed to be starting a militaristic revolution he was wearing evening dress and an ill-fitting black tailcoat…and his army medals.
A. N. Wilson
There are 400 to 500 people north of the Cannonball River in the contested zone, in the treaty zone, in the place where, according to the United States Army Corps of Engineers, we are not supposed to be. And they are going to stand their ground.

I’m not better than anyone else. I’m not supposed to be on a pedestal. I’ve always stayed away from that.

I knew I was supposed to be a writer; I had made that declaration in the closet of my soul.
Padgett Powell

Evgeni Plushenko
Theology is Anthropology… [T]he distinction which is made, or rather supposed to be made, between the theological and anthropological predicates resolves itself into an absurdity.

The growing tide of anti-Semitism shocks the conscious of everyone who values freedom, and the ugly, hateful acts particularly stain the character of democracies where liberty and religious freedom are supposed to be respected.

Miles Davis
History is just littered with problems that were solved that were supposed to be impossible.
Paul Wolfowitz

Stephen Daldry
I was supposed to be a professional rollerblader!
Dani Levy
We had this scene where I’m supposed to be bending over to get something. I thought it was kind of cute.
Melinda Clarke
Limitations are something that I latch onto – like working in genre, or if you’re writing TV, there are act breaks, there’s a length of time it’s supposed to be. The restrictions of budget and sets can be really useful. When you can have everything, it’s very hard to make things feel real and lived in.
Joss Whedon
I just hate that gay role models are supposed to be just like straight people, as if even straight people are like that.
Paul Rudnick
My problem with the traditional acting method was that I never understood what you were supposed to be thinking about when you’re onstage.
Tina Fey
It’s more that I’m afraid of time. And not having enough of it. Time to figure out who I’m supposed to be… to find my place in the world before I have to leave it. I’m afraid of what I’ll miss.

Reba McEntire
amazingly, i’d actually forgotten that i’m supposed to be plain. i’m so used to alex telling me i’m beautiful. i’m so used to feeling beautiful around him. a hollow opens up in my chest. this is what life will be like without him: everything will become ordinary again. i’ll become ordinary again.
Lauren Oliver
I know I’m not strong enough to be everything that I’m supposed to be. I give up. I’m not stong enough. Hands of mercy won’t you cover me? Lord right now I’m asking you to be Strong enough. Strong enough for the both of us.
Matthew West

Some actors are supposed to be very difficult, but I’ve not found that to be the situation.

Sachin Tendulkar
You’re supposed to be kind to everyone, because you never know when you’re meeting an angel.

Fran Lebowitz
That love doesn’t come easily and that relationships are supposed to be a struggle. Everything else is so hard; hopefully love is the one thing that is actually fun.
Lana Del Rey

Mel Torme
Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, ‘You’re disgusting, and I want nothing to do with you.’ But women, we’re supposed to be like, ‘He messed up. He made a mistake.’
Adrienne Bailon
Ultimately, it is in fun. It is supposed to be highly entertaining.
Bill Hicks
People just weren’t interesting. Maybe they weren’t supposed to be. But animals, birds, even insects were. I couldn’t understand it.
Charles Bukowski
Becoming interested in poetics got me interested in theater. Theater is supposed to be poetry, you know, before it’s anything else. It just doesn’t fly if it isn’t musical.
Steve Earle
I did think reviewers were supposed to be polite about story collections – collections are rather delicate creatures in the literary environment – but not everybody got this memo, I guess.
Lorrie Moore

Elizabeth Gilbert
Concerned we’re in a time where politicians can’t even fake sincerity. Aren’t they supposed to be good at that?

Carole Bouquet
All initiation of force is a violation of someone else’s rights, whether initiated by an individual or the state, for the benefit of an individual or group of individuals, even if it’s supposed to be for the benefit of another individual or group of individuals.
Ron Paul
The clergy [in the 14th century] on the whole were probably no more lecherous or greedy or untrustworthy than other men, but because they were supposed to be better or nearer to God than other men, their failings attracted more attention.
Barbara Tuchman
I was supposed to be on the Tonight Show but I broke my shoulder instead.
Rip Taylor
I don’t want to be anything other than what I’ve been trying to be lately.В All I have to do is think of me and I have peace of mind. I’m tired of looking ’round rooms wondering what I’ve got to do or who I’m supposed to be.В I don’t want to be anything other than me.
Gavin DeGraw
But if you’re coming off ACL surgery, you don’t need to be having a press conference at OTAs. Every week? Really? It becomes a circus, a sideshow. It takes away from the focus of what those sessions are supposed to be about: the team.
Donovan McNabb
Audiences always love the baddies. Especially these ones that are so witty and charming and outrageously devious – everything you’re not supposed to be. I think it speaks to the basic, primal nature in us.

I figured out something spiritual. Billboard this: ‘Life is supposed to be fun!’
Jenny McCarthy
The human body is supposed to be 70 percent water. I consider myself 70 percent film

Sarah Ban Breathnach
That is one of the reasons I oppose this whole Affirmative Action business. We are not supposed to be judged based on what our ancestors did or suffered. We are supposed to be judged as individuals, based on what we are able to achieve.
Alan Keyes
The original concept of rock and roll… was supposed to be this young angst with mistakes and all. Four or five guys get together, get angry and that’s really how it starts, and it’s all this energy.
Peter Frampton
I read that I’m supposed to be Hollywood’s new sex symbol . I think I’m the most unsexy thing that ever was. I’m open for everything of course, but I’m certainly not aware of being sexy.
Sharon Tate
You shouldn’t try to stop everything from happening. Sometimes you’re supposed to feel awkward. Sometimes you’re supposed to be vulnerable in front of people. Sometimes it’s necessary because it’s all part of you getting to the next part of yourself, the next day.
Cecelia Ahern
Music is also supposed to be fun. On this record, (titled ‘III’), I really had the desire again to jump back into some good-time, fun-loving songs.
Joe Nichols
I can’t actually think of a job where I was relaxed the whole time. I don’t think I would want to do that job. When I break into a cold sweat when I’m reading, I think, ‘Oh good. That’s what’s supposed to be happening.
Lily Rabe
The first time I read Marx, all I knew was he had given rise to this [Soviet] system that was supposed to be more or less the devil’s work. It’s disconcerting to read what he had to say and see that a lot of it was very human and very decent and didn’t seem to be the work of the devil at all.
Joe Weisberg

Iliza Shlesinger
It seems to me divorce is so common now. It ought to be more institutionalized. It’s like a head-on collision every time. It’s supposed to be a surprise but it’s commonplace.
Kurt Vonnegut
Sometimes we go so focused on bringing people to the meetinghouse that we forget we are supposed to be bringing them to Christ.
M. Russell Ballard
You know, in Hollywood you know when somebody is getting pregnant.

Brian Andreas
My life choices are not supposed to be the gateway to somebody else’s. That’s my journey.
Drew Barrymore
Children’s books aren’t textbooks. Their primary purpose isn’t supposed to be “Pick this up and it will teach you this.” It’s not how literature should be. You probably do learn something from every book you pick up, but it might be simply how to laugh.
J. K. Rowling
There is two types of Larceny, Petty and Grand. They are supposed to be the same in the eyes of the law, but judges always put a little extra on you for Petty, which is kind of a fine for stupidness.

Ladies and gentlemen are supposed to be looked after by others, like children and pets.
Mason Cooley
Im not supposed to be within two hundred feet of a school or a Chuck E. Cheese.
Alan Garner
Let’s say Donald Trump loses but it’s close. That could change the whole way the job of being a politician shifts – that to succeed in politics, you have to be a caricature of what a politician is supposed to be like.
Chuck Klosterman
LSD is just a tool to turn us into what we are supposed to be.
Albert Hofmann
Using a camera appeases the anxiety which the work-driven feel about not working when they are on vacation and supposed to be having fun. They have something to do that is like a friendly imitation of work: they can take pictures.

David Giuntoli

Jodi Picoult
I turned my air conditioner the other way around and it got cold out. The weatherman said ‘I don’t understand it. It was supposed to be 80 degrees out today.’ I said, oops

Life isn’t supposed to be easy. Ever. But with the hardest challenges go the greatest rewards. And every incredible moment of my life came only after I did something that made my gut clench with fear. – Caleb

J. R. R. Tolkien
By its very nature, film is supposed to be an accessible medium to everybody.
Stephen King

Five hundred murders is a lot of murders. It’s hard to believe, 500 is like supposed to be good?But we went from 2,200 to 500. And it was continued on by Mayor Mike Bloomberg. And it was terminated by current mayor. But stop-and- frisk had a tremendous impact on the safety of New York City.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg
To be a good artist, you have to serve the work of art and allow it to be what it is supposed to be.

Daphne Oz
The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence… Iggy Azalea’s not excellent.

It is of great importance that the laws by which the contracts of so numerous and so useful a body of men as the sailors are supposed to be guided, should not be overturned.
Sherrilyn Kenyon

John Lydon
If you are writing a story and trying to draw an audience to come and hear you tell it, it’s got to in some way relate to them. Who wants to come and hear about your specific problems? It’s not therapy – it’s supposed to be a communal piece of entertainment.
Matt Damon
Everybody believes in psychiatry it’s supposed to be for our own good. Let psychiatry prove that anybody has an illness, and I’d concede, but there is no physical proof.
Kate Millett
We should really love each other in peace and harmony, instead we’re fussin’ n fighting like we ain’t supposed to be.
Bob Marley
Life is not supposed to be easy. Stop working so hard to make it that way. Go ahead and handle it!

Kazuo Ishiguro
Economics seeks to be a science. Science is supposed to be objective and it is difficult to be scientific when the subject matter, the participant in the economic process, lacks objectivity.
George Soros
Getting revenge on a guy is just not worth it to me. I mean, it definitely sucks at the time, but obviously you’re not supposed to be with that person.
Carrie Underwood
Things just happen in the right way, at the right time. At least when you let them, when you work with circumstances instead of saying, ‘This isn’t supposed to be happening this way,’ and trying harder to make it happen some other way.
Benjamin Hoff
I hate people who splash their own pain on covers, like the whole world should hear about them. Why are we all supposed to be interested in one individual’s suffering?
Andrea Corr
I think kids should have a mentor and a role model, but that they shouldn’t take one person’s opinion to be what we call final assessment or judgment about how life is supposed to be.
Sean Paul
Acting like the person I’m supposed to be has always been the easiest thing for me.
Harvey Martin
As a filmmaker, you’re always supposed to be with your characters, in all movies, even if they’re villains.
Robert Zemeckis
Polygamy has an ancient history and is legal in many parts of the world. I find the rules of polygamy to be damaging and it’s potentially dangerous to young girls and terrible for “excess” boys. But polyamory is supposed to be a more equal arrangement among agreeing adults.
Emily Yoffe
Of all my Russian books, the defense contains and diffuses the greatest ‘warmth’ which may seem odd seeing how supremely abstract Chess is supposed to be
Vladimir Nabokov

Maggie Stiefvater
They (theological liberals)seemed to know what the answer was supposed to be and weren’t much concerned with how to get there. They knew only that whatever answers the Fundamentalists came up with must be wrong.
Eric Metaxas
The academic world is one of the few places where prejudice is supposed to be totally banned, and we’re politically correct on everything, but it’s still a place where you can attack religion out of utter, complete, bottomless ignorance and not be considered to have done anything wrong.
Robert Neelly Bellah
Disney was a family film studio and I was supposed to be their young, leading man. After they found out I was involved with some guy, that was the end of Disney.

Penn Dayton Badgley
When I’m supposed to be writing I clean my apartment, take my clothes to the laundry, get organized, make lists, do the dishes. I would never do a dish unless I had to write.
Fran Lebowitz
When you find yourself on the Internet when you’re supposed to be writing, you’ve already lost. It’s even beyond procrastination when you end up on the Internet.
Noah Baumbach
The internet might be a convenience, but it hasn’t yet, for me, been a fundamental reordering. These things are supposed to be time-savers, so you have more time standing at your easel if you so choose.
Joe Bradley
The end of the world was supposed to be gradual. There was supposed to be warning. A long, slow slide. What we got was punctuated equilibrium: a stately wobbling, then a sudden tipping point. There was plenty of warning, I suppose. We just weren’t paying attention.
Elizabeth Bear
It’s hard when I get to the end of the movie and am held hostage and am supposed to be very upset and the funniest things I’ve ever heard in my life are coming out. All I can do is pretend there’s something really important behind me to hide my face from it.
Brie Larson

T. H. White
I was picked up on a London street by a model agent. She took me to her office and then sent me to Paris to work in shows. It was supposed to be two weeks, but I ended up living there with my Zimbabwean boyfriend. I made enough money modeling and acting in French movies to buy a nice flat.
Saffron Burrows
Our generation was supposed to be about trying to deal with nuclear concerns and environmental disasters.
Michael Stipe
If you’re supposed to be a ‘personality,’ then you might as well have a personality.

Fran Lebowitz
When distractions are manifold, it’s best to remember what you are supposed to be doing.
David Levithan
Clary: “Aren’t they supposed to be hiring someone else to train me full-time anyway?”
Cassandra Clare
I find that acrylics dry very fast – which is supposed to be its charm; however, I find that because of that quality they don’t blend as nicely as the oils. The oils, for one thing, are softer and more flexible than the acrylics. Also, the colors are brighter with oils.
Boris Vallejo
I’m supposed to be making comics, so I had to do it the best way I knew how, which is what those guys at the beginning of the Twentieth Century were doing.
Art Spiegelman
Chemotherapy isn’t good for you. So when you feel bad, as I am feeling now, you think, ‘Well that is a good thing because it’s supposed to be poison. If it’s making the tumor feel this queasy, then I’m OK with it.’
Christopher Hitchens
Music is not supposed to be nationalist. It is supposed to surpass language barriers. It is about generations communicating with each other.
Simon Le Bon
Whenever somebody says they need an angle for their story I always fear that they’ve got an idea and they want me to fit into it or they want me to come up with an idea myself or I’m supposed to be more revealing than I’ve been, and to me it just sounds like something I don’t want to do.
David Duchovny
I’ve tried that love thing for the last time. My heart says no, no! Nobody’s supposed to be here, but you came along and changed my mind

Susan Elizabeth Phillips
The only really unplayable lie I can think of is when you’re supposed to be playing golf and come home with lipstick on your collar.
Arnold Palmer
The multitude always strains after rarities and exceptions, and thinks little of the gifts of nature; so that, when prophecy is talked of, ordinary knowledge is not supposed to be included. Nevertheless it has as much right as any other to be called Divine.
Baruch Spinoza
A man goes to a fancy dress party dressed only in his Y-fronts. A woman comes up to him and says “What are you supposed to be?” The man says “A premature ejaculation.” “What?” says the woman. The man explains “I’ve just come in my pants.”
Tommy Cooper
Grace Jones
The aging process is fascinating because it doesn’t disturb me, because this is what it is supposed to be like. But I’ll tell you what does – it’s the lack of strength – you can’t hold up suitcases and do it yourself. Loss of physical strength.
Anita Roddick
Every generation has someone who steps outside the norm and offers a voice for the unspeakable attitudes of that time. I represent everything that’s supposed to be wrong, everything that’s forbidden.
Sam Kinison
I used to think freedom meant doing whatever you want. It means knowing who you are, what you are supposed to be doing on this earth, and then simply doing it.
Natalie Goldberg
Sometimes you find out what you are supposed to be doing by doing the things you are not supposed to do.
Oprah Winfrey
I’ve left Bethlehem, and I feel free. I’ve left the girl I was supposed to be, and some day I’ll be born.

Carl Edwards
I was supposed to be waiting up here when you got back, only your Phoenix lot got in the way…” “Yes, they do that,” said Dumbledore.
J. K. Rowling
If we are going to find our way out of shame and back to each other, vulnerability is the path and courage is the light. To set down those lists of *what we’re supposed to be* is brave. To love ourselves and support each other in the process of becoming real is perhaps the greatest single act of daring greatly.
BrenГ© Brown
I was actually supposed to be a basketball player, not an actress. My parents had me playing basketball on competitive teams when I was in kindergarten. Even though my heart belongs to the arts, I’m a tomboy at heart, too.
Kids aint supposed to be grateful! They’re supposed to eat your food, break your heart.
Eric Kripke
The Shift hasn’t happened yet, maybe it never will, but sometimes-just enough times to give me hope-my brain jars back into where it’s supposed to be.
Ned Vizzini
Family isn’t something that’s supposed to be static, or set. People marry in, divorce out. They’re born, they die. It’s always evolving, turning into something else.

Janet Tashjian
The bowl games are only supposed to be a fun reward.
Woody Hayes
At root, a pearl is a ‘disturbance’ a beauty caused by something that isn’t supposed to be there, about which something needs to be done. It is the interruption of equilibrium that creates beauty. Beauty is a response to provocation, to intrusion. … The pearl’s beauty is made as a result of insult.

Jerry Falwell
My kids think you are always supposed to be in a small group and lead one.

Eric Bana
You don’t forget. You just move past it. Let go. Be who you were supposed to be instead of who they make you feel like you should be
Jessica Sorensen
I think transwomen, and transpeople in general, show everyone that you can define what it means to be a man or woman on your own terms. A lot of what feminism is about is moving outside of roles and moving outside of expectations of who and what you’re supposed to be to live a more authentic life.
Laverne Cox
I’m a musician because I love it and it’s supposed to be fun.
Norah Jones
I’m supposed to be a normal, sane type person, but after you go through war and such, you become superstitious. I am convinced that somebody is looking after me.
Daniel Inouye
The Macintosh was supposed to be the computer for people that just wanted to use a computer without having to learn how to use one.
Steve Jobs
I believe that we are given an order by Jesus. One of the last things he did was to spread the word of God and he being the basis for our salvation. Christians are supposed to be evangelicals. And I am.
Jimmy Carter
Living isn’t a simple thing…no one said it’s supposed to be.
Art Alexakis
I never realized until lately that women were supposed to be the inferior sex.
Katharine Hepburn
Mother said,” mocked the king. “Don’t be childish.” “We’re children,” Myrcella declared haughtily. “We’re supposed to be childish.” The Hound laughed. “She has you there.
George R. R. Martin
Really it’s always things that scare me like loss of control, dealing with the unknown and the unseen… Something that’s not supposed to be there and you don’t know where it came from, or what it wants from you, or how to defend yourself against it. That’s the root of the things I find scary.
Oren Peli
Money is like a child—rarely unaccompanied. When it disappears, look to those who were supposed to be keeping an eye on it while you were at the grocery store. You might also look for someone who has a lot of extra children sitting around, with long, suspicious explanations for how they got there.
Daniel Handler
When people talk about the ’60s I never think that was me there. It was me and I was in it, but I was never enamoured with all that. It’s supposed to be sex and drugs and rock and roll and I’m not really like that. I’ve never really seen the Rolling Stones as anything.
Charlie Watts
Being 5′ 10″, I was supposed to be too short to play college volleyball. So that gave me the hunger and the fire to say, Oh yeah? I’d just hit the crap out of the ball.
Summer Altice

Steve Martin
The maxim is, that whatever can be affirmed (or denied) of a class, may be affirmed (or denied) of everything included in the class. This axiom, supposed to be the basis of the syllogistic theory, is termed by logicians the dictum de omni et nullo.
John Stuart Mill
Journalists are usually quite jealous people, especially of intellectuals who are supposed to be in fashion.
Vivienne Westwood
Although Christ in my mind is an absolute yogi, I think many Christian teachers today are misrepresenting Christ. They’re supposed to be representing Jesus, but they’re not doing it very well. They’re letting him down very badly, and that’s a big turn off.
George Harrison
I feel the audience has a right to know if some of the money they’re spending is going to a certain cause, and reassuring them the money is going to where it’s supposed to be going.
Ian Anderson
A lot of the time the experts, the people who are supposed to be able to tell you what to do, will tell you that you can’t do something even when you know you can. And a lot of the time it’s your friends … who tell you you can do it.
Mark Zuckerberg
Theoretically the human is supposed to be the smart one so as you get acquainted with the horse, you explore what it’s going to take for him to understand what you would like him do, with as little trouble as possible. You’re trying to avoid conflict, not trying to create it.
Buck Brannaman
Miles Davis fully embraced possibilities and delved into it. He was criticized heavily from the jazz side. He was supposed to be part of a tradition, but he didn’t consider himself part of a tradition.
Bill Laswell
By more than two to one Americans do not consider what Kevorkian did, injecting a terminally ill patient with legal drugs at the patient’s request, to be the same as murder. You may want to note that laws are not supposed to be enforced on the basis of public opinion polls.
Dan Rather
It is funny that men who are supposed to be scientific cannot get themselves to realise the basic principle of physics, that action and reaction are equal and opposite, that when you persecute people you always rouse them to be strong and stronger.
Gertrude Stein
Aristodemus, a friend of Antigonus, supposed to be a cook’s son, advised him to moderate his gifts and expenses. “Thy words,” said he, “Aristodemus, smell of the apron.

Vince Staples
I hear you’re supposed to be good at manipulating people. Try a little harder to make me like you, all right? I’m the queen. Your life will be nicer if I like you.
Kristin Cashore
Girls are supposed to be feminine and demure. Comedy isn’t about that, so you just have to unlearn it. Certain women are so pretty, they can’t go weird enough to be funny. You have to be willing to be ugly. I’m lucky my face can look so hideous.
Jennifer Coolidge
You know daytime television? You know what it’s supposed to be for? It’s to keep unemployed people happy. It’s supposed to stop them running to the social security demanding mad luxuries like cookers and windows.
Victoria Wood
Cyberspace’ is a metaphorical idea which is supposed to be the space where your consciousness is located when you’re using computer technology on the Internet, for example, and I’m not entirely sure it’s such a useful term, but I think that’s what most people mean by it.
Neil Postman
But I think half the battle is figuring out what works for you, and I am much better at being a mother than I ever would have been as a lawyer. I sometimes wonder if it is just me, or if there are other women who figure out where they are supposed to be by going nowhere.” – My Sister’s Keeper
Jodi Picoult
I can’t tell you how scary it can be walking onto a movie and suddenly joining this family – it’s like going to somebody else’s Christmas dinner; everyone knows everyone and you’re not quite sure what you’re supposed to sit.
John Cleese
Do you remember when everyone began analyzing Beatles songs..I don’t think I ever understood what some of them were supposed to be about
Ringo Starr
Sacrifice is a part of life. It’s supposed to be. It’s not something to regret. It’s something to aspire to. Little sacrifices. Big sacrifices. A mother works so her son can go to school. A daughter moves home to take care of her sick father.
Mitch Albom
Learning as we go… Why didn’t they tell us this before? We, the consumers, are supposed to be docile guinea pigs in a vast but uncontrolled experiment with powerful hormones (HRT). That’s quite a commentary on “scientific medicine”.
Ralph W. Moss
Fletcher was always going to be your ex-boyfriend, from the moment you met him. He’s just finally caught up with where he’s supposed to be.
Derek Landy
Remember the heart. It is supposed to be in control of the mind. That’s the way it was supposed to happen. It got inverted over the other way when we fell out of creation. It’s not normal and it has caused a lot of problems. As you can see, our world is dying.
Drunvalo Melchizedek
Any time there’s racism somewhere in sports, we should get it out of there because sports is a place where everything’s supposed to be fair.

Another stupid thing I believed for a long time was that pizza was supposed to be said peed-za.
Hari Kondabolu
I’d lose weight if I was an actress and had to play a role where you’re supposed to be 40 lbs lighter, but weight has nothing to do with my career. Even when I was signing a contract, most of the industry knew if anyone ever dared say lose weight to me, they wouldn’t be working with me.
Herzog and Malick both have this very unique naturalist intentionality to their process. It’s about creating the mood, creating the focus and having discipline, but not prescribing what the performance was supposed to be. Neither of them are really directing their actors into a performance.
Sam Pressman
People are supposed to be loyal to the country above [Donald’s Trump] family.
Steve Inskeep
I came with the notion of perhaps saying something for monks and to monks of all religions because I am supposed to be a monk. … My dear brothers, WE ARE ALREADY ONE. BUT WE IMAGINE THAT WE ARE NOT. And what we have to recover is our original unity. What we have to be is what we are
Thomas Merton
Human beings aren’t supposed to be controlled and told what to do.
Ricky Williams
Work was like cats were supposed to be: if you disliked and feared it and tried to keep out if its way, it knew at once and sought you out and jumped on your lap and climbed all over you to show how much it loved you. Please God, he thought, don’t let me die in harness.
Kingsley Amis
I do play tennis, but I don’t really like competition. I’m supposed to be so intense, but I hate competition.

Jimmy Fallon
Artemis: I am not buoyed by that. Foaly: You are not supposed to be buoyed by that. You are supposed to be equalized. Mulch: I’m pretty sure that both of you just made really horrible jokes. But I’m not sure because I think you broke my funny bone.
Eoin Colfer
You will all know that in the Middle Ages there were supposed to be various classes of angels. these hierarchized celsitudes are but the last traces in a less philosophical age of the ideas which Plato taught his disciples existed in the spiritual world.
Charles Williams
I felt like I was cheating myself of those communities and cheating the audience because I wasn’t able to know them. That’s what the bikes did, without me having to put any arbitrary philosophy on what it was supposed to be. It enabled human connection.
Ben Sollee
Our opportunity now is to decide to change what we want, to seek what we actually came here to experience, rather than what we’ve been told by our culture that we are supposed to be experiencing.
Neale Donald Walsch
I’m really thankful to be alive. If you get to know me, I’m a person that’s always smiling and always joyful and I’ve been that way since I was born because of the struggles I went through. I was supposed to be number eight that died so I’m always thankful.
Dwight Howard
If you’re coming from America to Iraq, then how are you supposed to be objective? I mean, you could pay lip service to being objective, but how are you going to objective when you’re embedded with the Marines? The Marines are saving your life every day and they’re protecting you.
Shane Smith
I gravitate toward the larger worldview questions such as, Why are we here? What are we supposed to be doing? What does it mean to know another person? To love someone? Of course, those questions are sort of in the background as I’m playing with language in the foreground, but those are the informing questions.
Aaron Belz
My first holiday to San Francisco in 1998-99 was supposed to be a two-week vacation but I ended up staying five weeks and nearly didn’t come home.
Johnny Vegas
My husband is a composer, so he plays piano all the time and I sit there and clap telling my unborn child, ‘Hear me clap, hear the music.’ I know music, in general, is supposed to be good for babies to hear.

The reason I am here, they tell me, is that I played the game a certain way, that I played the game the way it was supposed to be played.

Dr. John
Slowing down reminds you that the journey is supposed to be fun.
Anne Bancroft
I suddenly realized that comedy, for me, was just being honest, and playing it for real. I’ve seen so many wonderful actors who turn into creatures from another planet when they’re told they are supposed to be playing comedy.
Bea Arthur
I always wondered if I was supposed to be excellent at something or not. I think, because of that, I have a lot of insecurities about myself.
Christopher Atkins
All State education is a sort of dynamo machine for polarizing the popular mind; for turning and holding its lines of force in the direction supposed to be most effective for State purposes.
Henry Adams
I try to play the bare essence, to let everything be just what it’s supposed to be in that particular spot…You have many things to pick from when you’re playing, so you try to train yourself to pick out the best things that you know.
Dizzy Gillespie
If a Democrat took Republicans on rudely, they wouldn’t be elevated in the Democratic Party. There’s a different standard. We’re supposed to be polite to people.

I have the belief that we are all created to be unique. We are supposed to be different and do those things that made us who we are.
Atticus Shaffer
I love that because that’s what I’m supposed to be doing – whether it’s accepted b everybody or not. I’m supposed to be pushing that envelope and trying new things. And people are supposed to say, Hov, you might have went too far.
If you were standing next to the prophet on the mountain, would you have seen the archangel? And my answer to that was probably not, even though it’s supposed to be a really big archangel. He describes it as – the Archangel Gabriel as standing on the horizon and filling the sky. That’s a big angel.
Salman Rushdie
Writing is supposed to be difficult, agonizing, a dreadful exercise, a terrible occupation.
Ray Bradbury
Music is supposed to be interwoven into the fabric of society; it is not supposed to be a plaything that is there to serve the population’s titillation of the moment.
Billy Corgan
There is an inmost center in us all, where truth abides in fullness;….and, to know, rather consists in opening out a way where the imprisoned splendor may escape, then in effecting entry for a light supposed to be without.
Robert Browning
I am not interested in the afterlife. Religion is supposed to be about losing your ego, not preserving it eternally in optimum conditions.
Karen Armstrong
But, I understand that Black Comb and Whistler are supposed to be great for snowboarding. So I am looking forward to going there someday soon.
Bridget Hall
I had to face the fact that I had been using my gay friends as props. They were always supposed to be funny and entertain me and praise me and listen to my problems, and their life was supposed to be a secret that no one wanted to hear about. I wanted them to stay in the “half closet.
Tina Fey
If women are supposed to be less rational and more emotional at the beginning of our menstrual cycle when the female hormone is at its lowest level, then why isn’t it logical to say that, in those few days, women behave the most like the way men behave all month long?
Gloria Steinem
Happiness is allowing yourself to be okay with what is, rather than wishing for, and bemoaning, what is not. Obviously, what is is what is supposed to be, or it would not be. The rest is just you, arguing with life.
Neale Donald Walsch
The financial crisis was a classic case of the political class failing the American people. Twenty-five agencies were supposed to be minding the store during the financial crisis and every one of them was asleep at the switch.

Harold Bloom
Why everything that’s supposed to be bad
Make me feel so good?
Kanye West
But we have to ask ourselves, what’s the purpose of the stock market? It’s supposed to be a source of capital for growing business. It’s lost that purpose.
Mark Cuban
I thought you were supposed to be pretending I don’t exist, not irritating me to death.
Stephenie Meyer
All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
It is never too late or too soon. It is when it is supposed to be.
Mitch Albom
Oh, Jeeves,’ I said; ‘about that check suit.’ Yes, sir?’ Is it really a frost?’ A trifle too bizarre, sir, in my opinion.’ But lots of fellows have asked me who my tailor is.’ Doubtless in order to avoid him, sir.’ He’s supposed to be one of the best men in London.’ I am saying nothing against his moral character, sir.
P. G. Wodehouse
Nothing sets a person up more than having something turn out just the way it’s supposed to be, like falling into a Swiss snowdrift and seeing a big dog come up with a little cask of brandy round its neck.
Claud Cockburn
What’s that supposed to be anyway?” said Fred squinting at Dobby’s painting. “Looks like a Gibbon with two black eyes!” “It’s Harry,” said George pointing at the back of the picture. “Says so on the back.” “Good likeness,” said Fred grinning. Harry threw his new homework diary at him.
J. K. Rowling
I don’t consider myself a funny girl, but I do have a sense of humor because I don’t take myself too seriously. Taking yourself too seriously, I think, is not right. Life is supposed to be funny. Because if you can laugh about yourself when you made a mistake or when you did something wrong, you can learn from it.
Stephanie Sigman
Bruno: We’re not supposed to be friends, you and me. We’re meant to be enemies. Did you know that?
John Boyne
I just like the idea of pills. I like to collect them but not actually take them. When I fell off my horse, I got tons of stuff: Demerol and Vicodin and Xanax and Valium and Oxycontin, which is supposed to be like heroin. And I’m quite scared to take them. I’m a control freak.
Madonna Ciccone
I’m supposed to be a pretty good theater actor.
John Malkovich
When people get this consciousness of the way things are supposed to be in America – that the locus of agency is in them, that they are supposed to be the ones setting the agenda – if people believe this, they get very energized. Yeah, it’s annoying to have this extra burden of saving the country.
Naomi Wolf
Who says that your thirties is when you’re supposed to be done? I would like to know who made that rule!
Serena Williams
I’m not normally a jewelry person. I’m supposed to be a working class champion and all, and I don’t like to rub my success in people’s faces.
Bubba Sparxxx
The CIA has transformed from an organization created to recruit spies to steal secrets, into a paramilitary organization, a paramilitary force. It’s not supposed to be a paramilitary force. It’s not good at it. It needs to return to its roots.
John Kiriakou
The media is absolutely essential to the functioning of a democracy. It’s not our job to cozy up to power. We’re supposed to be the check and balance on government.
Amy Goodman
I’ve worn black today, because I’ve heard so often that it’s supposed to be slimming. But instead I am this sphere of darkness submarining through the halls.
David Levithan
Want a sugar cube? […] They’re supposed to be for the horses, but who cares? They’ve got years to eat sugar, whereas you and I . . . well, if we see something sweet we better grab it quick. […] You’re absolutely terrifying me in that get-up. What happened to the pretty little-girl dresses?
Suzanne Collins
The technological way of thinking has infected even ethics, which is supposed to be thinking about the good.
Leon Kass
The idea that every time you do a film you’re supposed to be tortured confuses me. I mean, guys who say “Oh, it’s really tough, my character is really suffering” – come on. For us, even in the rotten ones, we’ve had a good time. I don’t think you have to suffer.
George Clooney
What reaches an audience is honesty. If you’re saying something truthful that’s supposed to be a funny line, it’s going to be funny. And if it’s supposed to be a serious line, it’s going to be serious. But, I don’t think there’s a distinction between how you play drama or comedy, if it’s based in the truth.
Barbra Streisand
My teenage years were exactly what they were supposed to be. Everybody has their own path. It’s laid out for you. It’s just up to you to walk it.
Justin Timberlake
We need to ensure that the government agencies that are supposed to be regulating the financial system are actually doing their jobs. We must shrink the federal government and hold it accountable – and to do that, we need a leader who understands how bureaucracies work and how to cut them down to size.
Carly Fiorina
Why am I doing the work I’m doing? Why am I friends with this person? Am I living the best life I possibly can? Questions are often looked upon as questions of doubt but I don’t see it that way at all. I question things to stay present, to make sure I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
In the rush to become all things to all people, the federal government has lost sight of its core responsibilities. As a result we’re stuck in this frustrating paradox where Washington actually neglects things it’s clearly supposed to be doing, while interfering in other areas where they are neither welcome nor authorized.
Rick Perry
Journalism is the only profession explicitly protected by the U.S. Constitution, because journalists are supposed to be the check and balance on government. We’re supposed to be holding those in power accountable. We’re not supposed to be their megaphone. That’s what the corporate media have become.
Amy Goodman
[“Faggot”] is a great word! The whole thing about language is, it’s supposed to be broadcasting your intentions. These are my intentions and these words broadcast my feelings. If all of a sudden you have forbidden words that doesn’t make the intent any better. It’s just appeasing sensitive people.
Joe Rogan
The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now.
James Lovelock
I think this is how we are supposed to be in the world-present and in awe.
Anne Lamott
Reporters are always supposed to be demanding more access and more transparency. So the day that there isn’t some friction between the White House press corps and the White House is the day that somebody in the press corps is not doing their job.
Josh Earnest
Why is this happening to me? Why am I having such a difficult time? One answer is that life is supposed to be difficult! It’s what enables us to grow. Remember, earth is not heaven!
Rick Warren
And why are we supposed to be serious about God? Did God show up and crack the whip? “You there, Annie in Ohio, I see you laughing a lot and frankly it really pisses Me off . . . “ (50)
Julia Cameron
I’m LeBron James, from Akron, Ohio, from the inner city. I’m not even supposed to be here. That’s enough. Every night I walk into the locker room, I see a No. 6 with James on the back, I’m blessed. So what everybody says about me off the court, don’t matter. I ain’t got no worries.
LeBron James
Writer’s were supposed to be a litte crazy
S. E. Hinton
To admit you want to have a comeback means you have to admit you weren’t what you were supposed to be. You dropped below your own standard.
Marilyn Manson
I think it’s always funny when you see kids do Shakespeare. When I was at school, I was in Hamlet. I played Claudius, who’s supposed to be a 60-year-old man, and I was like 18. It’s inherently ridiculous seeing 18-year-old boys with gray beards. That’s always funny.
Steve Coogan
I know where I’m supposed to be at the time of the snap. Now, where the play dictates I’m going to go is a different story.
Troy Polamalu
I always wondered why God was supposed to be a father,” she whispers. Fathers always want you to measure up to something. Mothers are the ones who love you unconditionally, don’t you think?
Jodi Picoult
When I was supposed to be awake, I was asleep. When I was supposed to sleep, I was silent. When a pleasure offered itself to me, I avoided it.
Susanna Kaysen
A wise man once said that any human being is capable of infinite achievement, so long as it’s not the work they’re supposed to be doing.
K.J. Parker
life ain’t supposed to be nothing, ‘cept maybe tough
Katherine Paterson
I’m here not because I am supposed to be here, or because I’m trapped here, but because I’d rather be with you than anywhere else in the world.
Richard Bach
You supposed to be able to do anything in this world. That’s what Martin Luther King told me.
Lil Wayne
The human condition is imperfection. And that’s how it’s supposed to be.
Katherine Center
Danger is the very basis of superstition. It produces a searching after help supernaturally when human means are no longer supposed to be available.
Benjamin Haydon
Everything is whole, complete and perfect as it is. There’s nothing “wrong.” Everything is exactly the way it’s supposed to be and it’s not based on thoughts and logic. It’s based on dreaming and feelings and emotions.
Drunvalo Melchizedek
When I talk about losing myself, which I did, it’s losing my idea of who I was and my idea of what I was supposed to be doing and the idea of what my value was to God. I lost all of that at least.
Barbara Brown Taylor
I don’t think Hollywood per se is supposed to be taken seriously, otherwise, dear Lord, that would be frightening.
Brittany Murphy
There’s no guarantee that justice will win out or that a noble sacrifice will make any difference. But when it does, there’s something that still swells my chest. There’s magic in that…. It tells me that’s the way things are supposed to be.
Brent Weeks
I’d love to do a modern-day musical that’s full of original music. To get your contemporaries to sing and dance without looking foolish and for it to be transformational and magical and all those things a musical is supposed to be.
Danny Boyle
I am what I am and that’s all that I am and if I’m supposed to be somebody else, why do I look like me?
Benjamin Franklin
I can’t think of anything that would do more toward putting us back on the road to liberty and personal responsibility than for the average American, and for the news media, to come to the understanding that we are not a democracy, nor were we supposed to be.
Neal Boortz
My father was a university professor and his thing was tenure. Any time I hear a university professor say tenure, I hear the word dinosaur. You’re not supposed to be getting tenure. You’re supposed to be figuring out how you can teach more students at a better price and more effectively. That’s your job.
Robert Kiyosaki
That’s what self-discovery seems to mean to most people. You’re going to beat yourself up. You’re going to reduce what you’re supposed to be and do to a set of rules so you can defy them, or so you can perform them and feel smug.
Frederick Lenz
Punk rock isn’t supposed to be for everyone. There is that sort of private club mentality, which is necessary. It keeps things from getting watered down and boring.
Billie Joe Armstrong
In democratic countries, however opulent a man is supposed to be, he is almost always discontented with his fortune, because he finds that he is less rich than his father was, and he fears that his sons will be less rich than himself.
Alexis de Tocqueville
A lot of these people, these program directors, just like anybody else in the world, even though they’re supposed to be leaders in the world, they’re followers. They follow what they think someone else is doing, instead of trying to blaze a trail.
Talib Kweli
Being a rapper is about being cool, but being a comedian, you’re not supposed to be the coolest guy.
Aziz Ansari
Childhood is supposed to be happy, and if you can’t remember yours with any happiness, what hope have you later, when life starts handing you fresh grief?
Amity Gaige
I have a vision for everything that I make, but… I’m not that considerate about what I do. I do whatever is in my head and how it ends up tends to be the thing that it’s supposed to be. It was never a premeditated decision.
James Vincent McMorrow
But they love each other. Isn’t that what love means? That you’re supposed to be there for the other person to turn to, no matter what?
Cassandra Clare
I’m not as cool as I’m supposed to be.
Joe Mauer
We’re supposed to be civilized. We’re supposed to go to work every day. We’re supposed to be nice to our friends and send Christmas cards to our parents.
Maurice Sendak
Whenever I am doing anything else, which is most of the time, even if it is not something like robbing a bank, I feel felonious. Writing is what I’m supposed to be doing.
Fran Lebowitz
When it’s played the way is supposed to be played, basketball happens in the air; flying, floating, elevated above the floor, levitating the way oppressed peoples of this earth imagine themselves in their dreams.
John Edgar Wideman
War for most men is not fighting or marching in parades. It is sitting around somewhere wondering what the hell you are supposed to be doing.
Art Buchwald
When I was a kid, we said that we were precluded from going to certain neighborhoods because of the color of our skin Now the neighborhoods are the neighborhoods of ideas, youre not supposed to be there because of the color of your skin.
Clarence Thomas
Because the path of the righteous man was never supposed to be easy,’ I whispered. ‘Those who are chosen by the Lord are given a hard journey. The rewards will come later.
Alexandra Adornetto
We all have our paths in life we are supposed to follow to find who we are supposed to be, but it’s not always a straight path. There is something inside of us that guides us, and if you are quiet and listen to it, you’ll be all right.
Kyan Douglas
Void is when there is absolutely nothing there and the nothing is natural, a complete vacuum. But empty – with empty, you are aware of what’s supposed to be there. Empty means something is missing.
David Levithan
Who am I supposed to be again? Just be yourself. But who am I?
Candace Bushnell
I see life everywhere I look. I get the energy off the water. Hawaii really, when I am there, it feels like how we are supposed to live and how it’s supposed to be: slower, just appreciating our surroundings. I love the people there and the aloha, the history. They’re really rooted in something.
Natalie Maines
A middle-aged woman who looked like someone’s cleaning lady, a shrieking adolescent lunatic and a talkshow host with an orange face… It didn’t add up. Suicide wasn’t invented for people like this. It was invented for people like Virginia Woolf and Nick Drake. And Me. Suicide was supposed to be cool.
Nick Hornby
Death is supposed to be the great equalizer, but that’s never true. Death is random, capricious, unconcerned, a flagrant player of favorites. It keeps its own counsel, so much the better to profoundly shock by its actions.
Kenneth Turan
End times aren’t supposed to be very pretty.
Lauren Kate
Fashion is supposed to be light and not try too hard.
Carine Roitfeld
I opened the Woodstock Festival even though I was supposed to be fifth. I said, ‘What am I doing here? No, no, not me, not first!’ I had to go on stage because there was no one else to go on first – the concert was already two-and-a-half hours late.
Richie Havens
I think the characters are supposed to be an open book, blank canvas.
Benedict Cumberbatch
Everyone in Iran is perceived to be a child with a paternal authority vested in the Guardian Council and the Sufi elders. They’re supposed to be grateful. They can never for a moment not be afforded this wonderful protection. The father who will never go away. The father who will never quit caring for them.
Christopher Hitchens
When government gets too big, freedom is lost. Government is supposed to be the servant. But when a government can tax the people with no limit or restraint on what the government can take, then the government has become the master.
Ronald Reagan
The press still considers me one of the most laid-back athletes since Babe Ruth. That’s supposed to be a criticism, but I consider it a compliment because I think being carefree on the course is one of the secrets to scoring well consistently
Fred Couples
If you’ve attended the Cordon Bleu, you would know that no woman is supposed to be a chef – only men.
Sandra Lee
I hear so many things about who I am supposed to be I hardly know what to believe. I am willing to tell all, but what Is it? Doubtless all these myths and legends will be straightened out eventually, but It may take years.
Will Cuppy
I was supposed to be women’s lib, and now I’d exceeded it and gone over into international politics.
Kate Millett
The voiceover thing is very selfless. You go in there and they’ve hired you for your voice, but they know exactly what they want, and the writer’s there and he knows exactly how it’s supposed to be said. So you can’t really argue with them, you just have to let them tell you what to do and then do it.
Neil Patrick Harris
Consider how great is the encouragement which all the world gives to the lover; neither is he supposed to be doing anything dishonourable; but if he succeeds he is praised, and if he fail he is blamed.
I’m supposed to be a musical genius, but I can’t work the car seat that well.
Kanye West
Family is supposed to be our safe haven. Very often, it’s the place where we find the deepest heartache.
Iyanla Vanzant
Senior year is supposed to be about being mentally done.
Jon Stewart
I feel like Black Jesus got his hands on me and guides me through life to put me where I’m supposed to be.
Tupac Shakur
How do you tell troops who volunteered to fight for our freedoms that the country they fought for won’t take care of them when they come back? In the time of war our troops and their families are supposed to be our number one priority.
John Salazar
When I say something like “back when I was in high school,” I usually mean: “back when I was supposed to be in high school.
Carlton Mellick III
I know a famous violinist who told me he can’t compose because he knows too many pieces. So, when he starts thinking of a note, an existing piece immediately comes to mind. Just starting out, one of your biggest strengths is not knowing how things are supposed to be.
Natalie Portman
If there was one decision I would overrule, it would be Citizens United. I think the notion that we have all the democracy that money can buy strays so far from what our democracy is supposed to be.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
No confession is inerrant; Reformed Christians are supposed to be those who seek to be constantly reformed according to the Word of God – and that includes our confessions as well.
Oliver D. Crisp
For me, marriage should be about partnership. How can you love someone you have to take care of like a child all the time? A wife is supposed to be a partner, and yes partners help each other when they need it, but they are supposed to be together because they want to in my book, not because one needs the other.
Lynsay Sands
It’s very easy for me to say that I think everybody should just be treated how they’re supposed to be treated and tattoos shouldn’t come into play. But what if someone has an offensive throat tattoo that might affect someone’s business? I am sure there are a lot of opportunities out there for everybody.
Nicole Richie
Nellie grinned. “I always wanted to go to Venice. It’s supposed to be the romance capital of the world.” “Sweet,” put in Dan. “Too bad your date is an Egyptian Mau on a hunger strike.” The au pair sighed. “Better than an eleven-year-old with a big mouth.
Gordon Korman
You say you’re supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don’t have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist. I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don’t have to be nice to them
Pat Robertson
