Proven Comeuppance quotations

I grew up on DC Comics, moral tales where the bad guys got their comeuppance.

To me the gory panels or grotesque stuff just made me chuckle.

These Stepsons tread where mortals don't belong, some of us think.

They seek out battle high above their station. Who knows what powers may yet take them and their mystic allies to task, bring them their comeuppance?

In our show, there's usually a comeuppance.

Or, if not, it's an anti-ending. And you're supposed to get that.

The importance of local governance may not be obvious to an America accustomed to treating city and state downfalls with doses of federal comeuppance. Sometimes there's a reason for that - the Civil War. More often, all reasoning seems absent - No Child Left Behind.

I long for the simplicity of theatre.

I want lessons learned, comeuppances delivered, people sorted out, all before your bladder gets distractingly full. That's what I want. What I know is what we all know, whether we'll admit it or not: every attempt to impose the roundness of a well-made play on reality produces a disaster. Life just isn't so, nor will it be made so.

Silence,they say,is the voice of complicity.

But silence is impossible. Silence screams. Silence is the message,just as doing nothing is an act. Let who you are ring out and resonate in every word and deed. Yes,become who you are. There's no sidestepping your own being or your own responsibility. What you do is who you are. You are your own comeuppance. You become your own message. You are the message.
