― David Haye

“Being sad and being depressed are two different things. Also, people going through depression don’t look so, while someone sad will look sad. The most common reaction is, ‘How can you be depressed? You have everything going for you. You are the supposed number one heroine and have a plush home, car, movies… What else do you want?’”

“Sometimes what we call tragedy, at least in the theater, are really case histories.

That’s what the catharsis is.”

― Dianne Wiest

“The way you build trust with your team is around super-clear communication in that instant when they say, ‘I will be sad if you don’t do X.’ You have to say, ‘We’re not going to do X, and here’s why, and believe me, you’ll be much sadder later if I let you go do it and you spend a bunch of time on it and nothing ever happens.’”

― Dick Costolo

― E. B. White

“Taste is one of the five senses, and the man who tells us with priggish pride that he does not care what he eats is merely boasting of his sad deficiency: he might as well be proud of being deaf or blind, or, owing to a perpetual cold in the head, of being devoid of the sense of smell.”

― E. F. Benson

― Ellen DeGeneres

“I had often sought for the peace there is in Christ, but I could not seem to find the freedom I desired. A terrible sadness rested on my heart. I could not think of anything I had done to cause me to feel sad; but it seemed to me that I was not good enough to enter Heaven, that such a thing would be altogether too much for me to expect.”

― Ellen G. White

“Has Google appropriated the word ‘search?’ If so, I find it sad. Search is a deep human yearning, an ancient trope in the recorded history of human life.”

― Emeli Sande

“My mother was very, very beautiful, and I saw that the beautiful women around me were often constrained not only by their beauty but by the way that being an object of male desire frequently caused violence in their lives. And it caused them to be constrained in these terribly sad ways – their brilliance was not valued.”

― Emile Durkheim

― Emily Kuroda

“51st State was one that I loved doing because the character was so out there, and in a way I was sad to leave the character behind. I’m afraid I could never be that cool in real life!”

“I was going to McDonald’s and Taco Bell every day. The kids behind the counter knew me – it wouldn’t even faze them. Or I’d sit up at Denny’s or Big Boy and just eat by myself. It was sad. I got so heavy that people started to not recognize me.”

― Eminem

― Eric Holder

“It’s a sad indication of where Washington has come, where policy differences almost necessarily become questions of integrity.

“Let us remember that sorrow alone is the creator of great things.”

― Ernest Renan

“I know that some endeavor to throw the mantle of romance over the subject and treat woman like some ideal existence, not liable to the ills of life. Let those deal in fancy who have nothing better to deal in; we have to do with sober, sad realities, with stubborn facts.”

― Evander Holyfield

“People are sad. People are broke. People are worried about money, people are worried that they’re not enough and not amounting to anything and they don’t feel good about themselves. People have rough times, and everybody’s pretending it’s not true, and we need to break that veneer.”

― F. Scott Fitzgerald

“I write entirely in English; Tagalog chauvinists chide me for this. I feel no guilt in doing so. But I am sad that I cannot write in my native Ilokano. History demanded this; if it isn’t English I am using now, I would most probably be writing in Spanish like Rizal, or even German or Japanese.”

― F. Sionil Jose

― Federica Mogherini

“You can play basketball and have a magic night and score 40 points with your team-mates and win the game.

― Fernando Alonso

“I was told so many times when I was a kid, ‘I can’t be friends with you, you’re too intense, you’re too sad all the time.’ I really thought that when I made the first album that everyone would understand me, all the people who weren’t my friends would become my friends.”

― Foster Friess

“The pro athlete is a sad tale. He signs a big contract and thinks he’s set for life. I didn’t think I was set for life, and I don’t now. As athletes, we are important, celebrities, in demand and rich. Then we are out of the game and we are not important, not celebrities, not in demand and not rich.”

And both he and I became truck drivers for different companies.”

― Frank Gehry

― Franka Potente

“It’s even easier to write about the past now that I’m happy and have better stuff to write about. That’s why someone like Bob Dylan can make so many records over so long a time; it’s not like he’s been sad all this time. He’s really successful!”

“It’s sad when someone you know becomes someone you knew.”

― Hilton Als

They speak to you and they’re so nice to you and they want to help you and they know you want a drink before the plane takes off. And they bring it to you without asking. If you’re sitting in coach and hoping for a drink, good luck.”

― Hope Davis

― Isabella Rossellini

“Our generation, unfortunately, is stuck to our phones – and, like, Twitter – constantly, which I have no problem with.

It wasn’t an easy book to write – emotionally, physically, or creatively.”

“It’s the sad thing about entertainment: it’s not always about who is the best. Jake The Snake had a horrible time playing politics. I never had a belt; didn’t need one. They tried to put me against Hogan twice, but when the people chanted for me, when they chanted for the DDT, that was the end of that. They couldn’t ruin their marketing.”

― Jake Roberts

― James Baldwin

“Don’t ever let the other stuff get in the way of your inherent skills as a kick-butt storyteller. Move the reader, make them happy and sad and excited and scared. Make them stare into space after they’ve put the book down, thinking about the tale that’s become a part of them.”

― Jamie xx

“Women often postpone their lives, thinking that if they’re not with a partner then it doesn’t really count. They’re still searching for their prince, in a way. And as much as we don’t discuss that, because it’s too embarrassing and too sad, I think it really does exist.”

― Jane Campion

“The tree I had in the garden as a child, my beech tree, I used to climb up there and spend hours. I took my homework up there, my books, I went up there if I was sad, and it just felt very good to be up there among the green leaves and the birds and the sky.”

― Jane Velez-Mitchell

“People tend to put entertainers on pedestals. We’re human beings, just like you. You may see us smiling, and whether we have money or not, we still have bills to pay, we still have our stresses.

― John Mackey

“The Beatles, they brought a whole new dimension to pop music. Of course, the psychedelic period is much more interesting to me, starting with ‘Rubber Soul’ and on to the ‘White Album.’ Great, great records. I was such a Beatles fan. I was very sad when they broke up.”

― Johnny Iuzzini

― JoJo Siwa

“I like happy endings in movies. I think life has a happy ending. When it’s all said and done, it’s all something worthwhile, and I want my movies to reflect that. There are enough things to be sad about. When you pop in a movie, let the message be one that’s one of hope.”

― Jon Favreau

― Jonathan Levine

“My favorite monster has always been the zombie. They are so much fun. They can be scary, pathetic, sad, funny, tragic, even heroic. They are the most elastic monster because, even with all of that, they don’t interfere with telling stories about the humans. They serve as threats and metaphors, but they allow the story to be about people.”

― Jonathan Maberry

“Without strenuous preplanning, road food is almost always bad food, sad food, chain food, clown food.”

I was not enjoying walking out there and feeling like I didn’t know where the next run was coming from.”

― Jos Buttler

― Jose James

“Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.”

― Josh Hopkins

“Wrap parties can be really sad, actually, disorienting.”

― Juan Gabriel

“The 2012 presidential campaign’s turn away from the classic, straight-up, American election – where the candidate who gets the most votes nationwide wins – is another sad reminder of the extreme political polarization distorting today’s politics. No one talks about a 50-state strategy for winning the presidency these days.”

“Well, you can’t be depressed and sad 24 hours a day.”

― Julia Sweeney

― Julianne Nicholson

“I was a very sad little girl.”

― Julie Andrews

“I am firmly of the opinion that women who make a lot of effort to hang onto their looks in middle age (unless they are beauties, entertainers or prostitutes) are rather sad, as one should surely have something more substantial to recommend one by this time, such as kindness or cleverness.”

― Julie Burchill

― Juliette Binoche

“I took a couple of classes in clowning, but that was more like Lucille Ball kind of slapstick, not Ringling Brothers. But we had to do things silently, and the teacher would do this running commentary. ‘Does this make Clown sad? Oh, Clown doesn’t like that, does Clown?’ Always ‘Clown.’ Never a name.”

― June Diane Raphael

“The larger streaming grows, the less money there will be to get the music out there, which, to me, is the sad part.”

“I’m one of those sad cases who’ve never wanted to be anything but a writer. I started writing my first novel when I was five years old. I have no idea what it was about, but I do remember spending considerable time trying to get the title right, though this had more to do with crayon colour than scansion.”

― Justine Larbalestier

“I’m naturally sort of a sad person, and that comes out in my music, but when I realized how many people were listening to it… I wanted to be a little more conscious about what I was putting out and what people were going to be taking from it.”

― Kali Uchis

“I feel that World Cup cricket should be played like football in which all the 160 countries take part. If only a handful of countries are going to keep on playing in the World Cup without making the game popular, I will be a sad man.”

― Kapil Dev

“I did ‘Lone Star Love’ in 2007 with Randy Quaid, and that was supposed to come to Broadway at the Belasco and a marquee went up and everything… and it all fell apart, and that marquee came right down, and we got severance pay. And, it was very sad.”

― Kara Walker

“I’m sad, upset, and disheartened with the trolling that happens on social media… At the end of the day, this whole homophobia is so disheartening and upsetting.

― Karan Patel

“For me, for a very long time, I was in denial because when you say you’re sad or you’re overwhelmed, we consider it whining or complaining. People say, ‘Count your blessings,’ and it’s like, ‘Yeah, I am, but I’m still sad. Something is wrong with me.’ I had to acknowledge it.”

― Karen Civil

“Being in ‘Doctor Who’ has been so amazing. I don’t think I will ever have a job quite so fun ever again. I feel sad because I am going to leave, but with any story, it has to come to an end.”

― Karen Gillan

“If we see a sad rain, it doesn’t mean the rain is sad, but it means we see it. That’s an easily dismissible kind of projection. But what I’m struggling to say, is that we take that rain in through our own hearts and emotions and senses and skin, and all those filters have an impact.”

“I do feel a bit dejected about my film career. I am sad that it didn’t take off as expected. I didn’t get my due as an actor. I have an attractive personality and good looks. But I don’t know what went wrong? You need to stop thinking about such things and move on.”

― Karishma Tanna

“Whether it’s something happy or sad, I like to share everything with my mother.”

― Karishma Tanna

― Karolina Kurkova

“I’ve cooked plenty of meals when I was sad, lonely, depressed, angry, bored, and/or under the weather. My primary aim in these circumstances is generally to cheer myself up, to fill my stomach with something warm so I can feel comforted and fed, usually just with a quick soup or an omelet.”

― Kate Christensen

“Eating by myself in my own apartment, single and alone again for the first time in many years, I should have felt, but did not feel, sad. Because I had taken the trouble to make myself a real dinner, I felt nurtured and cared for, if only by myself. Eating alone was freeing, too; I didn’t have to make conversation.”

― Kate Christensen

“I talked to ex-wives of musicians of the ’70s for research. They’re the funniest people in the world, yet there is this sad, beautiful thing in their eyes that says they’ve seen more than they could ever possibly tell you.”

― Katee Sackhoff

“I think the meaning of abortion is what the woman says it is: For a woman who wants a child but can’t have this one, it can be sad; for a woman who doesn’t want a baby, it can feel like a huge relief, like having your whole life given back to you.”

― Katha Pollitt

“It is always sad to write about prejudice, but sometimes when we see it being played out in the lives of fictional characters, we can recognize it in our own lives.”

― Katherine Paterson

“It can be really powerful to write something when you’re sad.”

― Kathryn Stockett

― Kathy Bates

“It’s a sad day when a cartoon is doing more and cares more and pays more attention to the environment than our president.”

― Kathy Najimy

“I think people appreciate a songwriter who shows different sides. The whole angst thing is cool, but if that’s all you’ve got, it’s just boring. Everything I write, whether it’s happy or sad, has a sense of humor to it.”

― Katy Perry

“I ran track in college. And that team, that all-lady team that I was on, I can remember just being so incredibly sad that I knew we were all going to leave each other after we graduated and that our lives would change. And even though I was the bridesmaid at all their weddings and stuff like that, it’s just not the same, right?”

― Kay Cannon

“I used to not walk out the door; I was so afraid. Everything from, ‘You shouldn’t be here,’ down to, ‘Girl, don’t wear those pants.’ I was so sad. I tried my best to not even look in a mirror!”

― Keala Settle

“When you think about such fine actors as Maggie Smith or Michael Gambon, they do all mediums. I think it would be quite sad and a bit dull just to have to stick to one. I like all of them.”

― Keeley Hawes

“There is something that always will be true about painting and sculpture – that in order to really get it, you have to show up. That is something that is both sad and kind of beautiful about it. It remains analog. It remains special and irreducible.”

― Kehinde Wiley

“It’s sad, the enslavement of the black underclass to designer labels – we’re an age that cares more about Versace than Vermeer.”

― Kehinde Wiley

“You see guys going up to girls in bars and saying, ‘Oh, can I show you a trick?’ It’s a tool. I find it kind of sad; it breaks my heart a little bit. They should try to use their own personalities. It sort of smacks of using magic as a crutch, which is not what it should be.”

― Keith Barry

“When I was in middle school and even high school, I wasn’t comfortable with my body. I look back, and it makes me sad, but I’ve grown into my body and really embrace it. I don’t have the typical girl body; I’m kind of built like a boy.”

― Kelley O’Hara

“The question I love to get asked is: ‘What’s the hardest part of your job?’ And literally, the answer is probably real sad, but it’s to just to be me. Like, it’s really hard, because I think people, you know, have a set idea of what a pop star should be.”

― Kelly Clarkson

“I think it’s sad that movies and television have caused the theatre to fade as a popular art form. I hope to get young people into the theatre and expose them to Shakespeare.”

― Kelly McGillis

“At Southwest, they’re on a mission to democratize air travel. When they first started, the only people who could fly were relatively wealthy businesspeople, and Herb Kelleher’s vision was to offer everyone the chance to visit a friend or relative during a happy and a sad time. That’s a vision employees can get excited about.”

― Ken Blanchard

“What is sad to me is not what Bill Nye thinks about me. What I found really unfortunate is that after presenting my stand on God’s Word, there were a number of Christians who were more complimentary of Bill Nye than of me because Bill Nye was defending evolution and billions of years.”

― Ken Ham

“I think social media has taken over for our generation. It’s a big part of our lives, and it’s kind of sad.”

― Kendall Jenner

― Kendra Wilkinson

“It is sad that the Republican leadership is not as interested as they say they are in protecting the institution of marriage as they are in waging a campaign to divide and distract the American people from the real issues that need to be addressed.”

― Kendrick Meek

“I don’t necessarily believe that ‘The Cosby Show’ should disappear as a cultural reference, but it is. That’s sad to me. I understand why. He was a man who possibly did some really bad things, and he should be punished beyond a doubt. But that show, and the impact it had not just on black culture, but culture, was amazing.”

― Kenya Barris

“It’s sad when girls think they don’t have anything going on except being pretty.”

― Keri Russell

― Kerry Washington

“For some reason, being gay can be such a sad thing in media, so it’s really cool to see someone like me who doesn’t look like, I guess, the stereotypical gay guy.”

― Kevin Abstract

“I really believe that all of us have a lot of darkness in our souls. Anger, rage, fear, sadness. I don’t think that’s only reserved for people who have horrible upbringings. I think it really exists and is part of the human condition. I think in the course of your life you figure out ways to deal with that.”

― Kevin Bacon

“Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great sadness that I announce that I will resign as Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs. I am sad because I love this job. I’m totally dedicated to the work that we are doing in Australia’s name around the world, and I believe that we have achieved many good results for Australia, and I’m proud of them.”

― Kevin Rudd

“I find it sad that by not talking about who I sleep with, that makes me mysterious. There was a time when I would have been called a gentleman.”

― Kevin Spacey

“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.”

― Khalil Gibran

“Sadness is but a wall between two gardens.”

― Khalil Gibran

― Kim Collins

“Bob summed it up best when he was on his knees at the end of the night saying, ‘Don’t trust in Guided By Voices.’ You were there; was the show awful or something? I know it was sloppy, but they’re not really that tight anyway, but was it embarrassing, was it sad?”

― Kim Deal

“When you have a nightmare, you think, ‘What caused this?’ And then you can sometimes get the same scenario two or three nights, back to back. Or something really bad happens, and you feel absolutely sad and do not want it to be real. You don’t want to fall asleep and get sucked back into that same dream.”

― King Diamond

“The jury is not in, so we just don’t know. But there are very strong indications that wormholes that a human could travel through are forbidden by the laws of physics. That’s sad, that’s unfortunate, but that’s the direction in which things are pointing.”

― Kip Thorne

“You can never control who you fall in love with, even when you’re in the most sad, confused time of your life. You don’t fall in love with people because they’re fun. It just happens.”

― Kirsten Dunst

“I always wanted to write a sad song that sounds happy. I think everyone can relate to this emotion.”

― Kirstin Maldonado

“You go from nobody looking at you to people taking second looks. I remember really loving it – and then feeling so guilty for loving it. Like, ‘That’s gross, Kristen.’ Also, telling myself it could go away at any moment, and I’d be so sad.”

― Kristen Schaal

“The sad thing is that I feel so boring because ‘Twilight’ is literally how every conversation I have these days begins – whether it’s someone I’m meeting for the first time or someone I just haven’t seen in a while. The first thing I want to say to them is, ‘It’s insane! And, as a person, I can’t do anything!’”

― Kristen Stewart

― Kriti Sanon

“There’s a view in Russian society that there are ‘male professions’ and ‘female professions.’ The women should be looking after the home and children. It makes me sad. But the only thing you can do is fight it.”

― Ksenia Sobchak

“I feel like when I say something sad, I mean it.”

― Kurt Vile

“I’m not cynical, but the reality is that life is mortal. Terrible, sad things happen. Everybody loses friends and family. I’ll be on tour and get really scared if my wife won’t answer her phone within one minute. I’m sensitive.”

― Kurt Vile

“My music has to be funny and sad and happy and loving; it’s gotta have it all. When somebody’s just too dark all the time, it’s just drama. Or if somebody’s too funny? Well, I like being too funny sometimes.”

― Kurt Vile

“Some people are so sad that, at times, that’s what gets on my nerves – if they just hammer the doom, with no comic relief whatsoever.”

― Kurt Vile

“It’s not about being happy 100 percent all the time, cause that’s just life. I make sad songs, too, that really only make the happy songs better.”

― Kyle

“Doesn’t matter if you’re sad or happy. I can be sad, you can be happy; it’s all good. That’s all I’m saying – let’s just be us.”

― Kyle

“Music fills peoples with life. It doesn’t have to be a ‘happy song.’ If you have that one song that relates to you, whether it’s a sad song or a gangster song, whatever relates to you the most in that moment, it can literally get you through the day.”

― Kyle

“I’m a sucker for ‘Jeremy Kyle,’ sad as it sounds. I just go home and watch that, or whatever the missus is watching.”

“As time goes on, we suppress our dreams, which really makes me sad.”

― Kylie Bunbury

“From 1997 through 1999, I had gained so much. People don’t realize how something like weight gain can make you sad. Losing weight has changed my life. If you can take control of your life, you can lose weight.”

― La India

“It’s still hard for me to think about Sept. 11 sometimes. I’m still angry. It’s hard to watch my daughters, Celia and Zaya, grow up and know they’ll never see their father. They’ll always be 9/11 girls, and I wish I could shield them from that. Everyone has an immediate pity for them. It is a sad thing, but the girls are also so happy.”

― LaChanze

“Fashion is that thing that saved me from being sad.”

― Lady Gaga

“You have to keep hobbies in L.A. Otherwise, it’s sad.”

― Lake Bell

“What I think is sad about the rom-com genre is that it has adopted this pejorative title. I think the reason why there haven’t been as many great ones is because we are fighting against the genre itself. If it is a romantic comedy then snuggle up to the fact that it can be a really earnest, refreshing feeling to feel good after a movie.”

― Lake Bell

“In Mississippi, you don’t admit that you’re gay. It’s just an awkward thing down South, which is sad.”

― Larry Hagman

“One day, I was at my grandmother’s house, and I found diaries that she kept as a young girl. I opened one to a page that had flowers glued inside. In her childish handwriting, my grandmother wrote, ‘Pap died today. I am very sad.’ The fact that this was true and that I could see the withered flowers made a huge impression on me.”

― Laura Amy Schlitz

“What I find sad is that the New Age movement is primarily a commercial undertaking. But it is answering to a human need.”

― Laura Esquivel

“If some people try to make a prenup into a pre-negotiation of a divorce… Well, that’s really sad. But I do think that it’s important to understand what each person has coming into the relationship, and what each person expects from the relationship. They aren’t always fun discussions to have, and they can be very eye-opening.”

― Laura Wasser

“My mom made me look in the mirror every day and say three things that I loved about myself. At first, I couldn’t name anything. It was so sad. When my mom made me do that, I looked in the mirror, and I literally couldn’t name one thing that I loved about myself.”

― Lauren Alaina

“The first series I wrote, ‘L.A. Candy,’ was always meant to be a three-book series, so when I started out it was all outlined that way and by the time I was done with the third book, I had become so involved and the process and the stories, I was a little bit sad to be done.”

― Lauren Conrad

― Lauren Lapkus

“I’ve had tons of bullies who would call me retarded, even on my Facebook page. It’s sad and it really hurts. I want to tell people not to use the word. Don’t say your friend’s retarded when they do something foolish. If you have a disability, keep working hard. Whatever it takes, do it, and don’t be mean to people.”

― Lauren Potter

“I write a lot of sad songs!”

― Lauv

“My beauty secret is to try to keep my heart as open and happy as I can, because it really makes the sad lines on my face look better.”

― Lea Thompson

“Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’ was a perfect song. It was so beautiful and so heartfelt. Her vocals were so amazing. And, for me, that was a song I went to when I was feeling sad and wanted to feel even sadder.”

― Lea Thompson

“Man Repeller is intended to chronicle all the fashion trends that women love and men hate. I started it because I am woman with a deep appreciation for harem pants. And sometimes blaming clothing on a sad love life is easier than blaming oneself!”

― Leandra Medine

“It’s always sad if anybody you know has a personal problem.”

― Lee Child

“I think you have to know how you feel when you’re sad and it’s healthy to mourn if a relationship ends.”

― Lena Headey

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.”

― Leo Buscaglia

“When we sit at the table, there is more going on than satisfying hunger. It is sad to think of those who eat simply to satisfy their hunger and who do not permit themselves to linger under the many spells offered by a good meal – the satisfaction of our hearts, our minds and our spirits.”

― Leo Buscaglia

“I’m sad and blue, about nobody but you. I told you that I loved you right from the start, you told me the same and now you try to break my little heart.”

― Leon Redbone

“Tears come from the heart and not from the brain.”

― Leonardo da Vinci

“Nothing gets on other people’s nerves at the office more than a whistler. And the sad part is, these whistlers don’t know they’re doing it. Someone should, tactfully, tell the whistler how much it disrupts the office environment.”

― Letitia Baldrige

“Delicious tears! The heart’s own dew.”

― Letitia Elizabeth Landon

“This is how sad my life is: I got a scar from scratching my chicken pox too much. That’s my big scar story. I really have no major scars.”

― Lewis Black

“I get lots of requests from people to write sad songs, and I’m like, ‘No, that’s rubbish patter.’”

― Lewis Capaldi

“I felt sad because everyday I had to wake up early to practice before going to school. After school I had to go back to tennis again, and then after tennis I had homework. I didn’t have time to play.”

― Li Na

“It’s weird how much social media affects someone’s career. Deals and jobs are sometimes based off how many followers you have, which is a little sad. I would rather that not be the case, but I understand that it’s important.”

― Lili Reinhart

“I am pretty weird – as weird as in my videos. The only difference is Lilly is not a performer, and Superwoman is. So Superwoman is very fearless. You’ll never see her nervous. You’ll never see her sad. But Lilly is a human. She is the person behind Superwoman, who gets sad and tired sometimes.”

― Lilly Singh

“The sad reality is that girl-on-girl hate is such a big issue in schools, at work, or online, and it never made any sense to me because, as women, we know how awesome other women can be.”

― Lilly Singh

“I was so sad from losing two of my dogs and my mother. I had this vision of all these animals sitting behind bars. They had no control and were scared. That’s why I got into fostering and adopting animals out.”

― Linda Blair

“It makes me sad that our kids are growing up in a country where they are American but, in a sense, have to prove it. They can’t just be who they are like everyone else. Who they are is something suspicious, something scary, something misunderstood.”

― Linda Sarsour

“I didn’t want to be on the losing side. I was fed up with Jewish weakness, timidity and fear. I didn’t want any more Jewish sentimentality and Jewish suffering. I was sickened by our sad songs.”

― Lionel Blue

“The day you think there is no improvements to be made is a sad one for any player.”

― Lionel Messi

“I have many years to get better and better, and that has to be my ambition. The day you think there is no improvements to be made is a sad one for any player.”

― Lionel Messi

“Since I had the baby I can’t tolerate anything violent or sad, I saw the Matrix and I had my eyes closed through a lot of it, though I didn’t need to. I would peek, and then think, oh OK, I can see that.”

― Lisa Kudrow

“I could never really choose a favorite book, but whenever I’m asked what my favorite movie is, I always say ‘Withnail & I,’ a British film from 1987. It’s funny and sad and absolutely gorgeous to look at. It’s the film I can watch over and over again.”

― Lisa Lutz

“Everything is so fast, and everybody wants to be stars and stuff, they’re taking the music out of the schools and kids wanting to play instruments, that whole piece of it is gone. Nobody is taking responsibility to push these kids to want to do it. Nobody’s reaching their hand out to it, and it’s pretty sad.”

― Liv Warfield

“The old know what they want; the young are sad and bewildered.”

― Logan Pearsall Smith

“I don’t sit down to write a funny story. Every single thing I sit down to write is meant to be sad.”

― Lorrie Moore

“If we don’t make earnest moves toward real solutions, then each day we move one day closer to revolution and anarchy in this country. This is the sad, and yet potentially joyous, state of America.”

― Lucas Till

“Just because I’m talking about something that might have been a sad or painful situation doesn’t mean that I’m sad or tortured 24 hours a day any more than anybody else is.”

― Lucinda Williams

“The display of grief makes more demands than grief itself. How few men are sad in their own company.”

― Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“When I finished reading ‘100 Years of Solitude,’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, I got really sad. I thought, ‘This will never happen for me, for the first time, ever again.’ Then I opened ‘Beauty Is a Wound.’ It’s a completely different story and writing style, but it has a similar place in my heart now.”

― Lucy Dacus

“You have to laugh at things in order to let them be what they truly are. Because nothing is only sad. Nothing is only funny. There’s context to all of those things.”

― Lucy Dacus

“The true artist is not proud: he unfortunately sees that art has no limits; he feels darkly how far he is from the goal, and though he may be admired by others, he is sad not to have reached that point to which his better genius only appears as a distant, guiding sun.”

― Ludwig van Beethoven

“I have never had a current state of mind. My mind changes a great deal. I am very affected by any sorrow or sad thing, and I am very affected by joy and beauty.”

― Luise Rainer

“I do gravitate towards the sad songs because I find them to be more of a challenge for me from a writing perspective. There are things about those songs that do touch people in a way that a fun song can’t.”

― Luke Combs

“I’ve never met a woman who thinks they’ve got a good enough figure – however perfect they look – which is sad, because no one else can see these perceived flaws; they’re entirely internal.”

― L’Wren Scott

“If you’re going to do a thing, do it fully so that no writing you give the world misrepresents you – so that nothing you put out there is like a sad regift you couldn’t throw away and had to find a place for.”

― Lydia Millet

“The lack of women directors is a sad fact of life. Kathryn Bigelow’s thrilling Best Director win may help turn things around.”

― Lynda Obst

“When you wake up each morning, you can choose to be happy or choose to be sad. Unless some terrible catastrophe has occurred the night before, it is pretty much up to you. Tomorrow morning, when the sun shines through your window, choose to make it a happy day.”

― Lynda Resnick

“I wanted to be a dancer my whole life. And when I gave it up to act, I always had a really sad part of myself that missed it and missed performing and missed being physical in that way.”

― Lyndsy Fonseca

“It’s kind of sad, the way we’ve turned the entertainment of reading into a kind of psychic broccoli – something to feel guilty about if you don’t force it on your face-making children while dutifully consuming a few token florets yourself.”

― Lynn Coady

“My favorite thing in the world is a quiz show, ‘University Challenge,’ so you can see what kind of sad person I am.”

― Lynne Truss

― M. J. Rose

“Don’t Cry Daddy is a pretty sad song. He got to the end of it and it was just real quiet and Elvis says, I’m gonna cut that someday for my daddy. And, by God, he did. He lived up to his word.”

― Mac Davis

“When you feel sad, it’s okay. It’s not the end of the world. Everyone has those days when you doubt yourself, and when you feel like everything you do sucks, but then there’s those days when you feel like Superman. It’s just the balance of the world. I just write to feel better.”

― Mac Miller

“I think some cases are different than others, but all of the child actors that I have encountered, as well as myself, are real kids. I mean we do all the things that kids do. We’re normal. We just like to do different things. We like to act and make people feel happy or sad, but we’re ‘real’ people.”

― Mackenzie Foy

“You have to let it all hang out, let go of the ideas that were more comfortable and embrace some of the sadness in your life.”

― Madeleine Peyroux

“From inside where I live, I feel like I just perceive events in a certain rational way. I often find it sad or poignant, and it may not make me laugh a bit. But I don’t mind inventing a portrait that allows others to laugh if that’s what they want to do.”

― Madeline Kahn

“There will be slow songs, sad songs, happy songs, songs about boys, and songs about being who you are. I’m making sure I’m happy with all of the songs, because if I am not happy with them, I can’t expect anyone else to be, you know?”

― Madison Beer

“I’ve played a ghost, cat, snake. I’ve been funny, sad. I’ve been filmed flying on screen. So why not spend time on something else? I don’t need to accept everything I’m offered.”

― Maggie Cheung

― Maggie Smith

“People just get kicks out of making other people sad.”

― Major Owens

“I like ‘Bewitched’ off the first album because it’s one of the happiest songs I’ve ever written and, as any writer will tell you, happy songs are a million times more difficult to write than sad songs.”

― Malcolm Wilson

“Being an old farm boy myself, chickens coming home to roost never did make me sad; they’ve always made me glad.”

― Malcolm X

“It’s important to get well-rounded right off the bat. A lot of experienced dancers can get pigeonholed into one thing. I’ve been hired for a lot of different gigs simply because I can do a lot of different things with different levels of dancers. And it’s sad to me that some dancers don’t do more.”

― Mandy Moore

“’Sunset Boulevard’ – the story of Hollywood movies draped on a depressing sex affair – is an uncompromising study of American decadence displaying a sad, worn, methodical beauty few films have had since the late twenties.”

― Manny Farber

“For me, money has never been an indicator. And it is very sad that each and every film these days is being judged by the money that it makes. It’s a world that I don’t want to be a part of, and I try and stay away from that.”

― Manoj Bajpayee

“I’m sad to see the passing of the great drug warriors. I certainly did my part in that battle and I don’t regret any of it.”

― Marco Rubio

― Margaret Chan

“I think it is really sad that when people lose their homes they kind of lose their minds too.”

― Margaret Cho

“The Holy Spirit can be with you always and guide you back to Him, but in order to enjoy the benefits of this holy gift, you must truly receive it, and then you must use it in your life. How sad it would be to be given such a precious gift and then set it aside and never use it.”

― Margaret D. Nadauld

“One of the sad truths about leadership is that, the higher up the ladder you travel, the less you know.”

― Margaret Heffernan

“I’m sad to report that in the past few years, ever since uncertainty became our insistent 21st century companion, leadership has taken a great leap backwards to the familiar territory of command and control.”

― Margaret J. Wheatley

“The old, sad art colors are gone. Now I paint bright colors. I paint paintings which are happy, where children are laughing and playing with animals. I paint paradise on Earth. I still paint sadness sometimes, but there is sadness in the world, too.”

― Margaret Keane

“All you’d have to do is get a sad look, and he’d try to do something for you.”

“My favorite thing to do is just sit outside on the stoop and talk with all my neighbors. I can go out with curlers in my hair, and nobody blinks twice. It’s just sad when people want to take a picture!”

― Margo Martindale

“I think it’s okay to talk about grief and sorrow. Especially for women, when you lose a child or have a miscarriage, it’s good to talk about it, as a lot of people don’t want you to speak about those things. It makes people sad, but sometimes you’ve got to.”

― Margo Price

“With any group of people in life, sad things happen, and crazy things, and happy things. When you’re in the public eye, it’s just amplified, that’s all.”

― Marie Helvin

“I’m one of those people that, if I’m sad or depressed, I don’t talk to people about it. I bottle it in.”

― Marie Osmond

“We can’t shame women for trying to be beautiful. That’s so mean and unfair. But there’s a part of me that thinks it’s really sad, too. It’s very complicated.”

― Marilyn Minter

“I was friends with Susan Sontag the last four years of her life. She had this amazing charisma and so much energy, but she had a sad little funeral in Montparnasse in Paris. It was rainy. It was all wrong. And I was thinking, ‘God, she loved life so much.’”

― Marina Abramovic

“I was friends with Susan Sontag the last four years of her life. She had this amazing charisma and so much energy, but she had a sad little funeral in Montparnasse in Paris.”

“I like to be sad once in a while. You need it for your equilibrium.”

― Marjane Satrapi

“The sad thing is, when it comes to diet, is that even when well-intentioned Feds try to do right by us, they fail. Either they’re outvoted by puppets of agribusiness, or they are puppets of agribusiness.”

― Mark Bittman

“Film-makers are always going to be interested in making movies that plug into society around them. That’s what a vibrant, artistically alert community should be doing. After all, it would be sad if we only made films about alien robots.”

― Mark Boal

“If people want to write long, rambling, pathetic articles about how sad they are about song titles, have a blast! I’ll be out playing music to a room full of people, having a great time.”

― Mark Kozelek

― Mark Kurlansky

“When I was a kid in the late ’60s and early ’70s, my parents and their friends would play the records of Andy Williams, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and Perry Como, music with string arrangements and men singing songs that sounded sad whether they were or not.”

― Mark Lanegan

“How do I control my emotions? How do I stop getting angry so often, or how do I stop being sad? And I think there’s a really important distinction to understand is that you can’t completely control your emotions. What you control is your reaction to your own emotions. And a lot of people don’t ever make that separation for what goes on with them.”

― Mark Manson

“What’s interesting about emotions is that the more you try to control them or to bottle them up, the stronger they get. So, the more I try to stop being sad, the sadder I’m going to get.”

― Mark Manson

― Marlee Matlin

“I’m the only one in my family who is deaf, and there are still conversations that go around me that I miss out on. And I ask what’s going on, and I have to ask to be included. But I’m not going to be sad about it. I don’t live in sad isolation. It’s just a situation I’m used to.”

― Marlee Matlin

“When I create a story, I can make it however funny, sad, or happy I want it to be. And when I read, I feel like I’m in the story, and I get to experience it. It feels like I’m watching someone else do something, but I’m doing the thing that the character is doing as well.”

― Marley Dias

“When I look back at those pictures of my mother performing – and listen to her recordings – it makes me sad to think that all of that joy she found in her work came to an end. I wish she hadn’t had to make that sacrifice, even if it was for the benefit of my father and siblings and me.”

― Marlo Thomas

“For reasons we don’t have to get into, climate change has become an incredibly polarized issue in the United States. I think that is sad. My own personal view is that we’re in a planetary emergency such has not been seen in 600,000 years.”

― Marshall Herskovitz

“Ten years ago, I still feared loss enough to abandon myself in order to keep things stable. I’d smile when I was sad, pretend to like people who appalled me. What I now know is that losses aren’t cataclysmic if they teach the heart and soul their natural cycle of breaking and healing.”

― Martha Beck

“All my work shares a kind of balance between black comedy and sad and despairing melancholy.”

“For those aspiring to make a living from travel photography, it’s a sad fact that the boring shots are the shots that are going to make you money.”

― Martin Parr

“Scientists habitually moan that the public doesn’t understand them. But they complain too much: public ignorance isn’t peculiar to science. It’s sad if some citizens can’t tell a proton from a protein. But it’s equally sad if they’re ignorant of their nation’s history, can’t speak a second language, or can’t find Venezuela or Syria on a map.”

― Martin Rees

“It would be sad if the expertise built up during the 40 years of the U.S. and Russian manned programmes were allowed to dissipate. But abandoning the shuttle, and committing to new launch vehicles and propulsion systems, is actually a prerequisite for a vibrant manned programme.”

― Martin Rees

“I’m sad to see celluloid go, there’s no doubt. But, you know, nitrate went, by the way, in 1971. If you ever saw a nitrate print of a silent film and then saw an acetate print, you’d see a big difference, but nobody remembers anymore. The acetate print is what we have. Maybe. Now it’s digital.”

― Martin Scorsese

“One of the things psychologists used to say was that if you are depressed, anxious or angry, you couldn’t be happy. Those were at opposite ends of a continuum. I believe that you can be suffering or have a mental illness and be happy – just not in the same moment that you’re sad.”

― Martin Seligman

“There’s a lot of insecure, sad people in any profession.”

― Martin Short

“There’s a certain amount of absurdity to the idea that having extremely crisp clothes is what’s going to get you through the door. And there’s a certain sad reality to it, too.”

― Martine Syms

“A sad person who is so involved with his sadness that he mistakes it for reality will have a hard time seeing himself as anything but sad. For him, the sadness is not a feeling that he experiences – it is him.”

― Mary Gaitskill

“I think coldness is chic among writers, and particularly ironic coldness. What is absolutely not allowable is sadness. People will do anything rather than to acknowledge that they are sad.”

― Mary Gordon

“I will be sad. I’ve gotten very attached to Harry and all that goes on in his world, I guess I’ll just be kind of tasting every bit of it because it will be the last one.”

― Mary Hart

― Mary J. Blige

“I remember a time when all my fans were crying and sad and going through hell. Now, we’re trying to uplift each other and accept ourselves for who we are, even if nobody else does.”

― Mary J. Blige

“I don’t think of my songs as sad songs. I think of them as vulnerable and honest. I crack jokes in between songs, so people don’t leave feeling too dark.”

― Mary Steenburgen

“It’s actually sad to be rich.”

― Masayoshi Son

“There is the melancholy of Europe. There is the romantic malaise. Feeling sad is almost a form of deepness.”

― Mathieu Amalric

“Today, actors aren’t forced to ditch their regional accents like they used to. The best example’s Tom Baker, a Scouser who went to great lengths to change his accent and ended up with something alien – and fantastic. It’s sad that when the likes of him go, there won’t be those sorts of accents any more.”

― Matt Berry

― Matthew Desmond

“I get really sad when people say, ‘I’m no good. I haven’t been cast in a pilot.’ It doesn’t mean you’re not good; it just means someone hasn’t seen you yet. It doesn’t mean that in real life you’re not the greatest actor.”

― Matthew Gray Gubler

“A band in our position, we have a first impression to make. We don’t want to come out of the gate and make people sad. I think we consciously made that choice to keep it happy and up.”

― Matthew Ramsey

“I hooked up with director Jacques Audiard for this film called ‘Rust & Bone’ with Marion Cotillard. I loved that experience so much I’m truly sad that it’s over!”

― Mattie Stepanek

“A comfortable old age is the reward of a well-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and melancholy prospects of decay, it would give us hopes of eternal youth in a better world.”

― Maurice Chevalier

“Stuffed animals are sad and scary; they have humorous and tragic qualities.”

― Maurizio Cattelan

― Max Holloway

“Of these years nought remains in memory but the sad feeling that we have advanced and only grown older.”

― Megan Fox

“In female sports, if you’re gay, most likely your team knows it pretty quickly. It’s very open and widely supported. For males, it’s not that way at all. It’s sad.”

― Megan Rapinoe

“I’ve always been pretty independent, no matter what situation: good, bad, ugly, happy, sad. I dig deep, and I get over it.”

― Mel B

“I don’t like it when people leave their takeaways on the street: it makes me sad and it draws foxes and rats.”

― Mel Giedroyc

“I like to play the grey areas in life – that’s the most uncomfortable place to be. Nobody likes to be in that in-between state where there don’t know what’s going to happen. There’s a lot of tension in that, and a lot of stuff to play with – where it’s uncomfortable and awkward and sad and scary.”

― Melanie Lynskey

“I mean, the unfair treatment of women and black people and Indians and other groups, that’s real. Mistreatment of other people because ‘I’m better than you are’ is such a sad part of the world.”

― Melissa Leo

“Everybody likes Johnny Cash. I think the sad part of it is his health is givin’ him problems.”

― Merle Haggard

“It’s a sad commentary on our time – to use a phrase much favored by my late father – that people increasingly celebrate Christmas Day by going to the movies.”

― Michael Dirda

“Sad to say, multi-tasking is beyond me. I read one book at a time all the way through. If I’m reviewing the book, I have to write the review before I start reading any other book. I especially hate it when the phone rings and interrupts my train of thought.”

― Michael Dirda

“Sometimes people do things because they are sad or because they are upset or were hurt by other people.”

― Michael Giacchino

“Everyone feels sad occasionally. A full range of emotions is part of what makes us human.”

― Michael Keaton

“The sad fact is, because we’ve had a failed policy and failed leadership, now we’re having to rely on Russians and the Iranians to go into Syria to fight and destroy ISIS.”

― Michael McCaul

“Stories have always been the things that entertain me and make me feel happy and sad and move me and give me the experience of being able to live many lives in one lifetime. It’s the best thing about being alive.”

― Michael Sheen

“For a culture that has such a problem with death, we seem to deal with it in a quite bizarre way. We see people shot, killed and blown up, and we find it funny and sexy and all those things. But, the reality of it is that every day people die, and people are really sad and they grieve and they go through a really difficult process with it.”

― Michael Sheen

“I mean, I was just one of the ones who got exposed, and because of the position I was in, where I was in my life, it went mainstream. A lot of people got out of it after my situation, not because I went to prison but because it was sad for them to see me go through something that was so pointless, that could have been avoided.”

― Michael Vick

“I wanted to write a show about an estate that wasn’t sad or morbid, like a lot of shows portray working class life to be.”

― Michaela Coel

― Michelle Visage

“I’ve had to put horses down on the farm before, and it’s very, very sad.”

― Mickie James

― Miguel de Unamuno

“What I’ve found is if you get the right characters in the right story and put them in the right setting – and let them go – they tend to do all the exploring of the issues for you. Because people are interesting and political and funny and sad.”

― Mike Bartlett

“It sounds so nerdy and pathetic, but what I always do on Sunday afternoon is bring my inbox down to zero, which is so sad. But e-mail has become like homework for adults. I’ll have 141 messages from people who will be offended if I don’t write back.”

― Mike Birbiglia

“It’s awkward to tell others that your spouse has died. Everyone becomes so sad and sorry, and you just hate like heck to have to break the news to someone who hasn’t heard the news.”

― Mike Gallagher

“My experience, with both my parents, is that grief has a lot of down, sad things, but I was also really emotionally raw, in the first year after each of them passed. Flowers smelled more intensely, my relationships were hotter, and I was more willing to risk. I was going for it a lot more. I was ‘unsober’ and I wasn’t playing by my rules.”

― Mike Mills

“Sadness is a super important thing not to be ashamed about but to include in our lives. One of the bigger problems with sadness or depression is there’s so much shame around it. If you have it you’re a failure. You are felt as being very unattractive.”

― Mike Mills

“Change is inevitable with the evolution of technology. In the ’70s, we had records. In the ’80s, we had CDs, and now we are living in the digital age. You can say it’s sad or unfortunate, but the reality is you’ve got to roll with the times and the technology.”

― Mike Portnoy

“I’m proud of my invention, but I’m sad that it is used by terrorists.”

― Mikhail Kalashnikov

“It’s been a bit sad to see that out of Linux distributions, it was Android – the most successful mobile Linux distribution – that has really introduced the malware problem to the Linux world.”

― Mikko Hypponen

“I would love to be married. But it’s not a necessity like the way that I feel I need and want to have children. It would be wonderful to have a husband, and I would feel blessed to do it. But I would feel sad for the rest of my life if I had no kids.”

― Mindy Kaling

“You know, the sad thing of post-9/11, which was of course horrific, was that the city in which I felt completely at home for two decades, suddenly people like us – brown people – were looked at as the ‘Others.’”

― Mira Nair

“Falling in love is awesome, but I’m never drawn to happy songs per se, so whenever you sit down to write a heartbreak song and you’re happily in love, it’s like, ‘OK, now I have to go back to a sad place to get something good.’”

― Miranda Lambert

“Alison Carr on ‘Homeland.’ She was such great character to play, so clever and full of surprises. I was sad to see her go.”

― Miranda Otto

“It makes me very sad. Everyone’s afraid of each other – Jews are afraid of Palestinians, Palestinians are afraid of Jews. Everywhere I see fear, not understanding. Reason went out of the window a long time ago.”

― Miriam Margolyes

“It really pisses me off when people look at women who are older and are not in a relationship as somehow sad or missing something, because they certainly don’t look at men that way.”

― Miriam Shor

― Mitch Miller

“When you’re an adult, things mellow out. I think when you’re a teenager and you are sad and the world is ending, everything is about that one sadness.”

― Mitski

“When I design and wonder what the point is, I think of someone having a bad time in their life. Maybe they are sad and they wake up and put on something I have made and it makes them feel just a bit better. So, in that sense, fashion is a little help in the life of a person. But only a little.”

― Miuccia Prada

“When I was growing up, albums were my closest friends, as sad as that may sound – Joy Division’s ‘Closer,’ or Echo and the Bunnymen’s ‘Heaven Up Here’… I had a more intimate relationship with those records than I did with most of the people in my life.”

― Moby

“I had lost my grandfather just a month-and-a-half before I made my debut. I was suddenly scoring runs and getting into the fray. It was a very trying period for me. I was happy as well as sad.”

― Mohammad Azharuddin

“Like many of my friends in the Pakistani diaspora – and many of my friends in Pakistan itself, for that matter – I have sometimes looked at the country of my birth and wondered whether its future will be one of steady and sad decline.”

― Mohsin Hamid

“Usually, I’m only sad when something sad happens. I am not a melancholic person. I like to live very much in the present. If I was an animal, I’d be a little cat. They like to live life.”

― Monica Bellucci

“Nixon has enough to overcome in terms of his legacy and his political history. Now he has to overcome the in-fighting between his daughters. It’s so sad. There’s another obstacle for him to clear.”

― Monica Crowley

“In the morning, I’m like the Antonioni movies. I’m little sad. I haven’t the courage to start the day. In the evenings, I’m happier, more alive – like the character I play in ‘An Almost Perfect Affair.’”

― Monica Vitti

“I think I have a dark view of the world. I have to make everything funny, otherwise it all seems so sad.”

― Moon Unit Zappa

“Dying is only one thing to be sad over… Living unhappily is something else.”

― Morrie Schwartz

“The monarchy is foremost a business, and it’s important to them that the British public continue to finance the excessive luxurious lifestyles of the now quite enormous, wasteful and useless ‘royal’ family. I find it very sad.”

― Morrissey

“I would be a very sad person if I didn’t have dance in my life. However I can, whatever I do, I just feel a lot of joy. Even if I am sad, if you take me to a rehearsal hall, I will automatically become happy.”

― Mouni Roy

“I do believe that if you haven’t learnt about sadness, you cannot appreciate happiness.”

― Nana Mouskouri

“If I was sad or afraid, I would sit in a corner and sing. If I was happy I would jump into the middle of the room and sing. It was how I expressed my emotions.”

― Nana Mouskouri

“I would like to address the issue of farmers through my craft – my films. But, the sad part is that such films win awards but don’t get any rewards at the BO.”

― Nana Patekar

“We’re sad about some of the losses of members of great seniority and distinction in the Congress, and some very new members, who will no longer be serving with us.”

― Nancy Pelosi

“Everyone has a ‘Majnu’ in them. It’s not about the sad or happy climax. It’s a term we use to define someone who falls in love and faces problems.”

― Nani

― Nargis Fakhri

― Natalie Imbruglia

“It’s much easier to write when you’re sad. But you can end up isolated and depressed because you almost need to put yourself in that situation to have that angst to write from.”

― Natalie Imbruglia

“Guys should not be allowed to use the Internet all day long. So sad.”

― Natasha Leggero

“I know theater can improve the quality of people’s lives, and I know theater can heal. I’ve worked as a doctor clown in a hospital for two years. I have seen sick kids and sad parents and doctors be lifted and transported in moments of pure joy. I know theater unites us.”

― Natasha Tsakos

“Coffee shops are everywhere, especially in Los Angeles, chock full of sad sacks desperate to make sure their screenplays make it into the right hands… or any hands, for that matter. The one thing that makes a coffee shop truly great, though, is charm.”

― Nate Corddry

“As a songwriter I hate this whole, ‘If it’s a sad song, it has to sound like a sad song thing.’ And that goes all the way back to my days with the Format. I’m an insane narcissist, so if I have to get something off my chest, I’ll get something off my chest.”

― Nate Ruess

“I am not a sad clown. I am not a sad clown.”

― Nathan Lane

“With ‘Lost,’ some members of the cast would literally open the script and find out that they were dead. I mean, that’s quite sad, really.”

― Neale Donald Walsch

“NASA has been one of the most successful public investments in motivating students to do well and achieve all they can achieve. It’s sad that we are turning the programme in a direction where it will reduce the amount of motivation and stimulation it provides to young people.”

― Neil Armstrong

“It’s sad that we have become so accustomed to bad service that we’re shocked when we get good service.”

― Neil Cavuto

“I’m a little sad that they actually came up with the metaphor of waves for feminism. By definition, a wave goes in, and it comes out. I would really like it to be a tsunami that creates a flood that forever changes the landscape.”

― Nell Scovell

“I had a boyfriend in school, and it was an innocent relationship that I experienced. It’s sad that the relationship didn’t last forever, but I do look forward to having someone special in my life once again. I’d definitely want to get married if I find my Mr Right.”

― Nia Vardalos

“Everything’s complicated, even those things that seem flat in their bleakness or sadness.”

― Nick Hornby

“We all suffer in our own way; like, life is miserable. And I’m not, ‘Oh, I’m a stand-up who’s sad,’ but the reality is that just about everyone is quietly unhappy. I don’t think that pertains to comedians specifically. I think most people look at themselves in the mirror and are not happy with what they see.”

― Nick Kroll

“I find Spike Jones’ movies to be really very inventive and funny, but they’re really sad and touching and really key into the different facets of the human experience.”

― Nick Kroll

“You’re playing a role, but you’re still feeling it. You can walk away from it after ‘Cut,’ but if you’re playing a sad or mixed-up person, it’s hard to stay in that place for these longish period of times. You kind of have to check out.”

― Nick Nolte

“You listen to a piece of music and it will remind you of something – it might make you happy, it might make you sad, but it is very emotive. And I think that Duran Duran have always understood that.”

― Nick Rhodes

“There are days when I should be writing, and I am so tired that I can’t. And the fatigue also affects my emotions, making me not even care about writing. There are days when I wake up so angry I can barely speak, and also days when I am so sad.”

― Nicola Griffith

“A lot of my movies have come to be thought about only years after the fact, and I’m sad about that but also happy about it in a way, as it’s given them longevity.”

― Nicolas Roeg

“I think I would be very sad if I wasn’t able to have a baby.”

― Nicole Kidman

“Getting a book published made me feel a little bit sad. I felt driven by the need to write a book, rather than the need to write. I needed to figure out what was important to me as a writer.”

― Nicole Krauss

“There is still so much drama in my life, but I’m not a sad person anymore.”

― Nikki Reed

― Nita Ambani

“The second you become an actress, people take the licence to make many assumptions about you. You’re in trouble if you interact with a director/actor. You’re in even more trouble if you don’t. When I started out, a single YouTube comment would make me sad for days, and I’d wonder how people could say such nasty things about me.”

― Nithya Menen

“We’ve been given the full spectrum of emotions for good reason, and it helps us be happy, in my opinion. I think it’s totally normal to be sad or angry or frustrated, hopeless at moments. I don’t think we would’ve been given these things if they were bad.”

― Noah Centineo

“As a twelve-year-old girl, I thought that I was only pretty if the people on social media told me that I was pretty – and they weren’t telling me I was pretty. So I didn’t think I was pretty, and I was really down on myself, and I really was sad with myself. But social media doesn’t give you validation or make you pretty. You make you pretty.”

― Noah Cyrus

“To think that any animal would be trapped makes me so sad. It’s like living in your bedroom for your entire life and never being able to go outside.”

― Noah Cyrus

“I love writing sad songs.”

― Noah Cyrus

“It’s a sad state when more people retweet than buy records.”

― Noel Gallagher

“I see so many women thinking other women are their enemies – especially when they don’t have a job or a guy or whatever. It’s like, ‘I don’t have what I want, and she does, so she must be my enemy.’ I find it confusing and not fair and sad.”

“I survived turning 60, I was not thrilled to turn 61, I was less thrilled to turn 62, I didn’t much like being 63, I loathed being 64, and I will hate being 65. I don’t let on about such things in person; in person, I am cheerful and Pollyanna-ish. But the honest truth is that it’s sad to be over 60.”

― Nora Ephron

“I’ve got so much to do, I don’t have time to sit down and be sad.”

“Fear of carbs, of gluten, of everything – we’ve distanced ourselves from the beauty of food, the art of it. It makes me sad when people say, ‘Oh, I don’t eat gluten. I don’t eat cheese. I don’t eat this. So I eat cardboard.’”

― Olivia Wilde

“I don’t really do sad, depressing songs.”

― Passenger

“I’ve found that people feel very free to say insulting things, not about me personally, but about the things I believe. It’s sad, because I really could care less where people are coming from, politically, religiously.”

― Paul Dano

“There’s so much to argue about. That was the goal with ‘Really Really.’ Somebody asked me once, ‘How should I feel when I leave?’ and I said, ‘Hopefully, you’re talkative.’ I don’t really care if you’re happy or sad or loved it or hated it or hate me. The goal is that you have something to say, that you have a response.”

― Paul Downs Colaizzo

“Wearing a tuxedo isn’t as simple as it sounds. I’ve been to a lot of award shows in Hollywood over the years and have seen some pretty sad tuxes. It’s surprisingly easy to go off the rails.”

“People think it’s terribly sad to spend Christmas alone, but it’s no sadder, really, than spending any other day alone, is it?”

― Paula Hawkins

“When you have used your beauty to get around, it’s like having extra cash in your back pocket.

You’re a brick in the building, and it’s sad.”

― Paulina Porizkova

“I was a little boy singing sad songs, about 9 or 10 years old in the woods. I listened to my voice coming back to me. It was as high as you could go. I dreamed of being famous as a singer when I was on those cotton fields. I wanted to see the world and meet people.”

― Percy Sledge

“I think the best mood for writing is a heavy feeling that’s a little bit removed from you. Sometimes I feel very self-indulgent and bratty and ungrateful, and no good music comes out of that.

― Perfume Genius

“I’ve had people tell me that I should just be sad and not joke around on Twitter, but they don’t understand that joking and being deeply sad are very close to each other. I’ll have a horrible memory that I find hysterical one day, and the next day I’ll cry about it.”

― Perfume Genius

― Pete Davidson

“I can’t speak for everybody. But I will say that for me, when I’ve been depressed – and I get depressed. I have irrational bouts of anxiety. I have random FedEx deliveries of despondency.

― Pete Holmes

“It’s sad when people break up.”

― Peter Steele

“I am an optimist, unrepentant and militant. After all, in order not to be a fool an optimist must know how sad a place the world can be. It is only the pessimist who finds this out anew every day.”

― Peter Ustinov

― Petra Collins

“I remember I was, like, 6 years old when I found out that I was having a little brother, and I was wishing and wishing for a sister.

― Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield

― Phyllis Smith

“I have always been more of a joyous person than a sad person. But I was fortunate to have a mom and dad where my mom could look at my face and know what was going on and was able to get me to talk and draw it out. As a result, I didn’t have to hide an emotion. I didn’t have to worry about her telling me, ‘That’s silly.’”

― Rachel Stevens

“My dad would pick me up every other Friday at 6 o’clock and drop me off every Sunday at 6 o’clock, and I remember those last couple hours, like around 4 o’clock, my dad would get kind of sad because he knew that he was about to not see me for two more weeks.”

― Reba McEntire

“That’s what is so great about being able to record a 13-song album. You can do a very eclectic group of songs. You do have some almost pop songs in there, but you do have your traditional country, story songs. You have your ballads, your happy songs, your sad songs, your love songs, and your feisty songs.”

― Reba McEntire

“I can’t watch my first audition because it makes me too upset. I just think it is really sad. I look at myself and don’t recognize myself. I do think fame and fortune changes people.”

― Rob Delaney

“In their heyday, the Pet Shop Boys were the Interpol of the Eighties, dressing up to sing really weird pop songs about lust and loneliness in the big city. They’re low-pro now, not retro-worshipped in the manner of Depeche Mode, New Order, or The Cure, but you can hear the reason why – these guys are too sad.”

― Roberto Baggio

“It’s sad that women characters have lost so much ground in popular movies. Didn’t ‘Thelma and Louise’ prove that women want to see women doing things on film? Thelma and Louise were in a classic car; they were being chased by cops; they shot up a truck – and women loved it.”

― Robin Quivers

“Most organizations don’t fall apart as a result of one big blow. Most relationships don’t end because of one grand argument. Most lives don’t fall to pieces due to one sad event. No, I suggest to you that sustained failure happens as the consequence of small, daily acts of neglect that stack up over time to lead to a blow up – and break down.”

― Robin S. Sharma

― Romola Garai

“The industry has changed in that it is far more disposable than it used to be. When Boyzone came out, we were given a shot and the patience to record our singles and albums. Nowadays, the thought is if it is not working, then the artist will be dropped. The record companies will bail on the artists, and I find that sad.”

― Ronan Keating

“Home will always be Northern Ireland but my schedule means for the next few years I won’t be there as much. I can’t do the same things that I did a year ago. That is I’m something conscious of, but I’m not sad about it. It’s fine.”

“I have read a thousand screenplays, and I have acted in a handful of them, and I have felt when it feels good, the writing, and it feels natural, and feels funny or sad or honest or whatever it may be. You connect. And I felt when it feels like writing, when it feels stale, or when it feels artificial or forced, or too theatrical or whatever.”

― Ryan Eggold

― Sammy Hagar

“I think everything is going to be devastatingly sad – when the phone rings, I know somebody in my family’s been hurt, somebody’s going to die. I’m sure a therapist would go, ‘That’s not a good way to live,’ but every time it’s not that bad thing, I’m so thankful and appreciative.”

― Sandra Bullock

― Sandra Bullock

“I think people tend to forget that as celebrities we are still human. We have the same emotions – we cry, we have fun, we laugh, we get sad, and we get hurt. When something is written about you, which millions of people are reading, and it is not true, imagine how hurtful it can be.”

― Seth Green

“We don’t have all this gay-bashing crime. You don’t see that. It’s not there. That is not really happening in Jamaica. But because a few artists basically sing it and put records out and the media runs with it, then the stigma becomes big, and now we’re trapped with that whole thing. It’s really sad.”

― Shaggy

― Shakira

“If it was up to me, I would just wear jeans and t-shirts, even to red carpets, but then no one would photograph me, so that would make me very sad. So you know, I’ve gotta keep up with the rest of the female population and sometimes try a little harder.”

― Shakira

― Shirley Temple

― Shonda Rhimes

“Unfortunately, we are living in an era where plenty of songs with vulgar, objectionable lyrics are also becoming popular.

― Simon Hoggart

“I’m not Meryl Streep. My God – she’s the greatest actor that ever lived. It’s sad that ordinary actors like me are compared to her.”

― Skylar Grey

“What if the Soviet intervention was a blessing in disguise? It saved the myth that if the Soviets were not to intervene, there would have been some flowering authentic democratic socialism and so on. I’m a little bit more of a pessimist there. I think that the Soviets – it’s a very sad lesson – by their intervention, saved the myth.”

― Slavoj Zizek

“I didn’t make music until I was about 18. I’d been playing my whole life, but I wasn’t putting it out because I didn’t feel like people would take it seriously. I thought people would be like, ‘It’s just like sad girl music – it’s like Taylor Swift.’”

― Solange Knowles

“It is a sad day for our country when the moral foundation of our law and the acknowledgment of God has to be hidden from public view to appease a federal judge.”

― Soledad O’Brien

― Song Hye-kyo

“To be honest, I’m a little upset these days. My family has been exposed to the media. Some people break into our house. My ex-girlfriend’s photos are circulating online. To say that these are things I need to endure for the sake of celebrity… that’s sad. I want to respectfully request that my private life remain private.”

― Song Joong-ki

“I’m not brave, I’m not fantastic. I’m like any other woman. I’m unhappy. I’m difficult. I’m sad. Am I strong, too? Maybe, but not always. There are days when I don’t want to see anyone. The most important thing you learn? You can live with it.”

― Sonia Rykiel

“I’m a sucker for sad disco pop.”

― Sophie Ellis-Bextor

“I loved ‘Pulling.’ It was so original and hilarious. I remember being very sad when it finished. I’d love to start a campaign to bring it back, but if I did, the actors would probably say, ‘We’re fine. We’re all really busy, thanks. Please don’t!’”

― Sophie McShera

― Stephanie Beacham

“Like a lot of overcommitted, overworked Americans, I do not have much time to exercise. Plain and simple. Instead of merely accepting this sad fact, I remind myself of it constantly, so that on the 95 percent of days I know I won’t make it to the gym, I remember to go out of my way to get my body moving.”

― Stephanie Ruhle

“Making people laugh is so much more difficult than making them sad. Too much fiction defaults to the somber, the tragic. This is because sad endings are easy in comparison – happy endings aren’t at all simple to earn, especially when writing to an audience jaded by them.”

― Stephen Graham Jones

“In Britten or Berg, there’s a tension between the sweet and the sour, between the familiar and the unfamiliar, the tonal and the atonal, the happy and the sad. That, to me, is what all western art is about – that tension. It’s why we want to say anything at all.”

― Stephen King

“It’s sad when you can’t make everyone happy, though. It’s impossible but, at the same time, you still hope. You think, ‘Maybe I can do it,’ but you know you can’t. But gosh, if I had to rely on giving people what they wanted, I would have had to write 40 billion different books and even then, I wouldn’t get it right.”

― Stephenie Meyer

“Life has to be everything. It can’t be all sad. It can’t be all peaches and cream. Because the lows have you appreciate the highs. And the highs give you perspective on the lows. If it’s not everything, it becomes flat or mundane.”

“I want to have not only the good side of life but the bad side of life. And the both combined is just my music. It’s funny at the same time as it’s sad.”

― Stromae

“To me, ‘Alors On Danse’ is the definition of clubbing. Because everyone is just trying to forget their problems, but actually, it’s so sad, clubbing. We try to sell happiness in clubs, but you can’t.”

― Stromae

― Sue Johanson

“I have a voice inside. A voice that I am forever trying to silence. A voice that calls me in when I want to be out, playing. A voice that is always sad. That is always terrified. That always wants to sit in the darkened room, away from noise and movement and colour – away from any experience that could prove to be challenging.”

― Sue Perkins

“’Spring Day’ – I wrote main lyrics based on my personal experience with old friends. It is about my sad memories with him, and it makes me sentimental whenever I listen to the song.”

― Suga

“For a novelist, no matter what, it’s a complete work, even if it’s not published. But if you write a screenplay, and it’s not performed, then it’s a sad and frustrating experience.”

― Susan Isaacs

― Sushma Swaraj

“Many marriages break up over hormonal imbalance, which is truly sad because it comes from a lack of understanding. When hormones are put back in balance with natural bioidentical hormones, a woman or man resumes their normal life of feeling good and having days filled with quality.”

― Sylvia Plath

“Things that make me angry and sad, I cannot hide. It’s not because I want to be a rebel; it’s my instinct. When something touches me deeply, I really have to react.”

― Sylvie Guillem

“I’ve never really been met with indifference, where they say, ‘Who cares?’ I think that’s what good art is supposed to do. It’s not supposed to make you feel good about your own prejudices and your own values; it’s supposed to open you up in some way and get you outraged or make you happy or make you sad or whatever it’s going to do.”

― T. C. Boyle

“David Mamet’s writing is pretty spectacular, obviously. I like the honesty of it; I like how funny it is and how sad it is.”

“I’m quite an odd little part of the Venn diagram. I’m not a movie star and beautiful in that way. I do an odd thing that’s funny and sad, and my face and my old body can take that.”

― Tamsin Greig

“As a gay man, there are certain places that I avoid. When I go to China, I lie and pretend I’m not married, which is really sad – I leave my ring at home. But I’m not willing to risk my safety in a country that could cause me no end of problems or where it’s illegal to be gay. I’m very aware of the places I can travel to safely and where I cannot.”

“If people who cherish freedom, who know the importance of mutual respect and are aware of the imperative necessity to establish a constructive and critical debate, if these people are not ready to speak out, to be more committed and visible, then we can expect sad, painful tomorrows. The choice is ours.”

― Tariq Ramadan

“I get kind of sad when I look at all of my magazines and think about how at one time I was much more impressed with a certain fashion editorial, or how I feel like I can’t really relate to being that excited about fashion anymore. Maybe it’s being jaded, but I honestly like that now, when something’s really good, I feel more affected by it.”

― Tavi Gevinson

“When I was starting out, I saw it as something that was definitely going to end. Every time I came to New York for fashion week or to interview someone, I was so sad going back home because I thought, ‘These things don’t get to last.’ That’s sort of the narrative of young success.”

― Tavi Gevinson

“I think that when you make yourself vulnerable, the thing that you do next is better. It’s not like you have to inflict pain on yourself in order to make yourself better, but I think it helps. The thing that bonds you to a new friend isn’t that you went to a really fun party; it’s ’cause you had a really weird, sad conversation.”

― Tavi Gevinson

“It’s very rare that things are true about yourself that are on the Internet. It’s just sad sometimes. So you definitely try and stay away from it as much as possible.”

― Torsten Wiesel

― Tracy Morgan

“I belong in America more than South Africa. I can’t remember the feeling of living there anymore. It’s like it was in another life. That’s sad in a way. It is my country. It’s where I grew up.

― Trevor Rabin

― Whitney Wolfe Herd

It’s not the way the world is supposed to be.”

― Yuna

“About 15,000 years ago, humans colonised America, wiping out in the process about 75% of its large mammals. Numerous other species disappeared from Africa, from Eurasia, and from the myriad islands around their coasts. The archaeological record of country after country tells the same sad story.”

That’s kind of sad.”

― Zachary Levi

“I think my thing is that… I don’t know. And that’s why I don’t wanna sing about ‘This is me, this is who I am’ because, like, even the question, ‘Tell me about yourself’ – what are you supposed to say? ‘Ooh, I’m a happy girl, but I’m sad, too’? People are so complex.”
