The more sinful and guilty a person tends to feel, the less chance there is that he will be a happy, healthy, or law-abiding citizen. He will become a compulsive wrong-doer

Dr. Albert Ellis

It is quite gratifying to feel guilty if you haven't done anything wrong: how noble! Whereas it is rather hard and certainly depressing to admit guilt and to repent

Hannah Arendt

I like my parrot, Figaro. Not in a wrong way I mean, yes, hell do anything for a mouth full of seed but nothing tacky.

Derren Victor Brown

When I hold you in my arms, I know that I can't do no wrong. And when I hold you in my arms, My love can't do me no harm. And I feel nice, like sugar and spice I feel nice, like sugar and spice. So nice, so nice, well I got you.

James Joseph Brown

America is an outstandingly dangerous place. Consider this: every year in New Hampshire a dozen or more people are killed crashing their cars into moose. Now correct me if I am wrong, but this is not something that is likely to happen to you on the way home from Sainsbury's.

William Cullen Bryant

After years of patient study (and with cricket there can be no other kind), I have decided that there is nothing wrong with the game that the introduction of golf carts wouldn't fix in a hurry.

William Cullen Bryant

Please don't say maana if you don't mean it I have heard those words for so very long. Don't try to describe the ocean if you've never seen it. Don't ever forget that you just may wind up being wrong.

James William "Jimmy" Buffett

I know I dont look like the kinda guy that knows much about women but believe or not I do actually have a girlfriend. Nothing wrong with her. Shes gorgeous. Shes blonde. Shes nineteen. I know nineteens a little bit young but I just fancied a fling with someone much younger one day. I didnt think anything would come of it. Here we are, still together after five years.

Robbie Bonham

How wrong it is to use God as a stop-gap for the incompleteness of our knowledge. If in fact the frontiers of knowledge are being pushed further and further back (and that is bound to be the case), then God is being pushed back with them, and is therefore continually in retreat. We are to find God in what we know, not in what we dont know.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong

Voltaire

Had I been wrong, this would still have been the honorable thing to do. I am very glad, however, to find out that I was right.

William M. Kucmierowski

Matthew Broderick

Weak souls always set to work at the wrong time.

Cardinal De Rets

She is not determined to forget me. It would be wrong to forget one so deeply and fondly devoted to her, who can so thoroughly appreciate her excellencies, and sympathise with all her thoughts, as I can do, and it would be wrong in me to forget so excellent and divine a piece of God's creation as she, when I have once so truly loved and known her.

Anne Bront

Character is a sort of an all-inclusive thing. If a man has character, everyone has confidence in him. Soldiers must have confidence in their leader.

Omar Bradley

England is very, very important to me, because in my family the English could do no wrong. When my father picked a mistress, it was always an English girl: if he made her pregnant, she could be shipped back to England and he would not be held responsible. It never happened, but I've made a lot of work called The English Can Do No Wrong.

Louise Bourgeois

You are wrong. The state and its existence are essential before everything else. All this preoccupation with liberty is not serious.

Habib Bourguiba

The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

Mark Twain
