Beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul.

I might not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but I'm pretty good at getting most of the other bulbs to light up.

I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am pretty, but not beautiful. I have friends, but I am not the peacemaker.

Not pretty quote Making a big life change is pretty scary. But, know what's even scarier? Regret.

If you are not the victim, don't examine it entirely from your point of view because when YOU'RE not the victim, it becomes pretty easy to rationalize and excuse cruelty, injustice, inequality, slavery, and even murder. But when you're the victim, things look a lot differently from that angle.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!


You're not pretty, and you'll never be pretty.

But, it doesn't matter. You have something much better. You have style.

Not pretty quote You may be pretty, and you may be talented, but nobody will remember that if you
You may be pretty, and you may be talented, but nobody will remember that if you are mean.

Like anybody, I like clothes, and I enjoy what I like to wear.

We might have a difference in personal outfit choices. Some might not like it. But to judge someone because of their appearance is pretty foolish. If you have time to do that, I suggest you look at yourself in the mirror and spend more time developing yourself. Come on, it's 2013.

God is at work in the mess. That's the message of the Bible. That's why the Bible is not pretty. That's why it's grimy, because God is working in the mess. He's working in the tears.

She was a sweet girl but not really pretty, a rough sketch of a woman with a little of everything in her, one of those silhouettes which artists draw in three strokes on the tablecloth in a café after dinner, between a glass of brandy and a cigarette. Nature sometimes turns out creatures like that.

Not pretty quote Life ain't always beautiful, but it's a beautiful ride.
Life ain't always beautiful, but it's a beautiful ride.

Emo always meant emotional. Any kind of art or music should be emotional. If its not, than it's pretty much just a jingle selling bleach or pizza.


Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.

You must have this charm to reach the pinnacle.

It is made of everything and of nothing, the striving will, the look, the walk, the proportions of the body, the sound of the voice, the ease of the gestures. It is not at all necessary to be handsome or to be pretty; all that is needful is charm.

Beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It is about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, but most importantly a pretty soul.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.

I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size But when I start to tell them, They think I'm telling lies. I say, It's in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me.

The meaning of life is pretty clear: Living things strive to pass their genes into the future. The claim that we would not have morals or ethics without religion is extraordinary. Animals in nature seem to behave in moral ways without organized religion.

I don't know why we are here, but I'm pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves.

Not pretty quote Because when you stop and look around this life is pretty amazing.
Because when you stop and look around this life is pretty amazing.

You don’t owe prettiness to anyone.

Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked ‘female’.

Out of pure spite we pretty much always said the opposite of what the other said, no matter what they said, only to mark distance. That's how we ended up calling ourselves Satanists, despite the fact that we absolutely were not. There was not a single Satanist in the whole Black Metal scene in Norway in 1991-92.

The idea that you can make love and not war really is pretty neat.

That thing in Korea, the thing in Israel - that's all over the world. There must be a new way of thinking.

You may be pretty, and you may be talented, but nobody will remember that if you're mean.

After all those years as a woman hearing 'not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,' almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, 'I'm enough.'

I realized up there that our planet is not infinite.

It's fragile. That may not be obvious to a lot of folks, and it's tough that people are fighting each other here on Earth instead of trying to get together and live on this planet. We look pretty vulnerable in the darkness of space.


I like things pretty reduced. I don't understand how people live with so much stuff around them, because you can't focus on it, and after a while it ends up becoming absorbed. It's not as if anything's really being appreciated. To me all that stuff is some desperate message to everyone about who you are, like bumper stickers.

Not pretty quote Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will al
Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.

A common misperception of me is... that I am a tough, rough northerner, which I suppose I am really. But I'm pretty mild-mannered most of the time. It's the parts that you play I guess. I don't mind it. I'm not a tough guy. I'd like to act as a fair, easy-going, kind man at some point.

I'm sin, but I'm not the devil.

Ten percent of the big fish still remain.

There are still some blue whales. There are still some krill in Antarctica. There are a few oysters in Chesapeake Bay. Half the coral reefs are still in pretty good shape, a jeweled belt around the middle of the planet. There's still time, but not a lot, to turn things around.

Dreams are lovely. But they are just dreams. Fleeting, ephemeral, pretty. But dreams do not come true just because you dream them. It's hard work that makes things happen. It's hard work that creates change.


It has been said that a pretty face is a passport. But it's not, it's a visa, and it runs out fast.

I am here to make you think. . . . I am not here to make pretty pictures!

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once a while, you could miss it.

I'm pretty Sicilian if I've been crossed.

I don't seek revenge, but I never forget. And I make it hard to repair, which is not a great quality because if people held me to that standard, no one would be around me - ever.

The Social Security trust fund is in pretty good shape today and we should not embark upon risky, dangerous schemes which will, in fact, undermine Social Security, such as privatization.

I do sin, but I am not the devil.

Not pretty quote Let's be pretty kind. Pretty funny. Pretty smart. Pretty strong
Let's be pretty kind. Pretty funny. Pretty smart. Pretty strong

I really can't deny it, I am who I am.

I'm pretty normal. I'm not that smooth type of girl. I run into things, I trip, I spill food. I say stupid things... I really don't have it all together.

I practice my saxophone three hours a day.

I'm not saying I'm particularly special, but if you do something three hours a day for forty years, you get pretty good at it.

No, I'm not a comic book guy. I'm pretty fascinated with the subculture though and I do think that the world of comic books is such a natural transition into film.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body.

Women wish to be loved without a why or a wherefore;

not because they are pretty, or good, or well-bred, or graceful, or intelligent, but because they are themselves.
