Boredom Quotes and Sayings
Quotes about Boredom

Please enjoy these quotes about Boredom from my collection of quotes and sayings.

Then life has a newness, a youth;
then life has a flow and freshness.
Then life has so many surprises.
And when life has so many surprises,
boredom never settles in you.

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Since boredom advances and boredom is the root of all evil,
no wonder, then, that the world goes backwards, that evil spreads.

The gods were bored; therefore they created human beings.
- Soren Kierkegaard

Every hero becomes a bore at last.

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.

- Marilyn Monroe

There are no facts, only interpretations.

Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences.
No one can eliminate prejudices -

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.

to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
