Lottery tickets are a surtax on desperation.

Douglas Coupland


If falling into desperation worked to make things better, then I would say, 'Let's all jump into despair'. But it doesn't help. The only way to truly find meaning and fulfillment is to look at the disaster, the pain, the difficulty, and know with complete certainty that good can come from this.

Yehuda Berg


Who knows where inspiration comes from. Perhaps it arises from desperation. Perhaps it comes from the flukes of the universe, the kindness of the muses.

Amy Tan


Weakness is what brings ignorance, cheapness, racism, homophobia, desperation, cruelty, brutality, all these things that will keep a society chained to the ground, one foot nailed to the floor.

Henry Rollins


People need motivation to do anything. I don't think human beings learn anything without desperation.

Jim Carrey


The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.

Henry David Thoreau, "Walden"
