As history since Hiroshima shows, the best, perhaps the only, way to curb war is to deter it with such overwhelming force as to turn it from a struggle into suicide.
Martin Van Creveld
Rock n’ roll can get quite overwhelming. You can get caught up in the cycle.

Kasper Schmeichel
Someone once told me you don’t know about cancer until it touches you. That’s when it touched my brother, Mickey. There’s nothing like it. When it touches you, it’s overwhelming.
Ron Rivera
The transition between life in red-state America and life in the Arab capital was at times overwhelming because of the traditional segregation of men and women in many public and private settings.
G. Willow Wilson
Scotland is my country, the nation that shaped me, that taught me my values. A nation whose achievements inspired and inspire me, a community whose failings drive me – drive my overwhelming desire to fight for social justice and equality.
Johann Lamont
My time in the World Rally Championship has been a usef

My time in the World Rally Championship has been a useful stage in my career, but I can’t deny the fact that my hunger for F1 has recently become overwhelming.

You know I’ve watched the All-Star game as a little boy… and to have the opportunity now to play in it is so overwhelming.
Andre Drummond
It feels great to see the kind of love people showered on me when I was shooting for ‘London Dreams’ in Chandigarh. It was overwhelming and touching. That was when I realised the kind of fan following I have.

Amit Trivedi
I think the overwhelming majority of the American people know that we have got to stand together, that we’re going to grow together, that we’re going to survive together, and that if we start splintering, we’re not going to succeed in a highly competitive international economy.
Bernie Sanders
It all happened so fast: I went from regular girl, an actress trying to make it in Hollywood, to a Cabinet spouse in one of the most polarizing administrations ever. It was overwhelming.
Louise Linton
It feels great seeing posters everywhere, and bus stops promoting ‘Black Nativity,’ and billboards in Los Angeles. It’s overwhelming. I can’t wait for everybody to see what I got.
Jacob Latimore
Comic-Con has been an amazing experience. It’s overwhelming, I have to admit, because of the lines and the crowds.

I had to divorce my husband, the prime minister. I found it terribly overwhelming.
Margaret Trudeau
When there’s so much choice, it can get overwhelming and it’s hard to make a choice.
Meghan Daum
Many of us who have cars have felt some form of extreme anger at other drivers because we feel they have put us in harm’s way. We might even envision ramming their cars or cutting them off in return, but do we actually do it? No, because the overwhelming majority of us never want to take another human life.
Taya Kyle
There’s a blessing that you’re in a spotlight, but people follow you and want to keep asking you questions – it’s just overwhelming sometimes.
Amber Liu
I am humbled that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be inducting me into the WWE Hall of Fame. The kindness and support that Arnold has shown me over the years is truly overwhelming.
Bruno Sammartino
That’s the thing about abuse – it can make the victim feel an overwhelming sense of shame, a shame so disabling that one suffers in silence.
Jagmeet Singh
I think I had only been working nine months when I got ‘Star Trek,’ and it was huge. It was very overwhelming. So that opened my eyes a bit at an early age, kind of how not be frightened when walking into a responsibility of something like that.
Tom Hardy
The new always happens against the overwhelming odds of statistical laws and their probability, which for all practical, everyday purposes amounts to certainty; the new therefore always appears in the guise of a miracle.
Hannah Arendt
When you shoot in a room, that’s a symmetrical thing that contains you. When there’s no contention, the sensation is overwhelming you. That’s a challenge, to do that.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
The machine of awards season is very stressful. But this is the Oscars! It’s your peers, your heroes, people you admire, the people who inspired you to get into this work in the first place. It’s a pretty overwhelming feeling when you think about it.
Taylor Sheridan
The overwhelming majority of Americans want decent and civil political dialogue, and candidates for office and elected leaders must continue to call for calm and unity, even when there are intense differences of opinion.
Jon Ossoff
I’ve always believed as a value that the government has a vital – not overwhelming, but vital – role to play in furthering human welfare and good. I think we have an important supportive role to play, hopefully intelligent and sensible.
Dick Gephardt
Comedy is a way to make sense of chaos. It’s a way of dealing with things that are overwhelming, that threaten you; it’s a way to survive and get closer to the truth.
Laura Linney
As horrific as this impact has been on my constituents, it is only a small part of the overwhelming destruction covering 90,000 square miles of the Gulf Coast.
Jo Bonner
The overwhelming message I was getting is that people were sick of politicians fighting amongst themselves and sick of the perception that politicians were in it for themselves and not the community.
Gladys Berejiklian
A lot of people fear death because they think that so overwhelming an experience has to be painful, but I’ve seen quite a few deaths, and, with one exception, I’ve never known anyone to undergo anything like agony. That’s amazing when you think about it. I mean, how complicated the mechanism is that’s being taken apart.
Lewis Thomas
My experience of American politics is that people raise issues, and they get addressed in an effective but imperfect way. But that’s sort of the American system: Mind the problem and worry it, and then we attack it with overwhelming power and put it away – and that’s the end of that problem.
Tom Steyer
Despite overwhelming support for the United States to adopt English as its official language, we have still not taken that important step.
Sam Graves
Being a mum can be utterly overwhelming.
Holly Willoughby
As a practicing neurologist, I can tell you first hand

As a practicing neurologist, I can tell you first hand that working with Parkinson’s patients offers clinical challenges. But from an emotional perspective, this disease can border on overwhelming.
David Perlmutter
You always feel pressure to do your best, and when you know that the story revolves around you, it can become very overwhelming.
Lauren Ashley Carter
Often times when you face such an overwhelming challenge as global climate change, it can be somewhat daunting – it’s kind of like trying to lose weight, which I know something about.
Hillary Clinton
There’s so much published by so many different publishers. Most of the time, I don’t have to confront that, but walking into a conference center filled with books – and people buying them or not buying them, being interested or not interested in them – that’s just overwhelming to me now.
Chris Pavone
The amount of hassle involved in travel can be overwhelming.
Paul Theroux
And I think within the pages of The Betrayal of America I think I present an overwhelming case that these five justices were up to no good, and they deliberately set out to hand the election to George Bush.
Vincent Bugliosi
A movie is so visually powerful, so overwhelming, that it tends to crowd out how you might have imagined things.
Yann Martel
It’s overwhelming that so many people love what you do and appreciate and get it. It’s very rewarding.
Alyssa Edwards
Just really, really believe in what you’re trying to do. Don’t let people alter that. Let people advise you and lead you down paths to make smart business decisions. But trust your instinct and trust that overwhelming drive that made you put all your dreams and everything on the line.
Luke Bryan
Looking back at it now, it’s almost overwhelming, the amount of work that went into writing ‘Shine’, and to come up with the ideas that we’re doing now.
Joshua Ostrander
The Hollywood lifestyle was just overwhelming. A party here, an interview there, magazine and modeling shoots daily, your face everywhere and girls throwing themselves at you. As great as it felt at the time, I still felt something missing, and that I needed to change.
Kirk Cameron
Without peace and without the overwhelming majority of people that believe in peace defending it, working for it, believing in it, security can never really be a reality.
Hussein of Jordan
My overwhelming concern will always be the well-being of the athletes. In Olympic sport, it is rare for competitors not to devote half their young life to this. Their families will have given up all sorts of things to allow them to do that.
Sebastian Coe
I’ve been stopped a few times by people who want to say, ‘Hi.’ But I’m an introverted person, and the idea that I’d have to talk to people all the time seems a little overwhelming.
Maria Bamford
Consolidation is so overwhelming. Someone who has one or two stations doesn’t have much clout.
Fred Eychaner
From the Olympian heights of an executive suite, in an atmosphere where your success is judged by the extent to which you can maximise profits, the overwhelming tendency must be to see people as units of production, as indices in your accountants’ books.
Jimmy Reid
Yes, college tuition is a problem for many young Americans, but it is a problem exacerbated by government subsidies and an overwhelming demand to get a college degree, despite high dropout rates.
Charlie Kirk
There are lots of dimensions to being a cancer patient. The overwhelming one is that it takes over your life.
Tom Brokaw
Let me close as I did in Gander on September 11, 2002 when I went to that community to thank the people of Gander and the people of Canada for the overwhelming support and help that was given to us in the wake of those attacks on September 11, 2001.
Paul Cellucci
Acquiring a repertoire in these days, when the vocal literature is so immense, so overwhelming, that the student with sense will devote all his energies to work and not imagine himself a martyr to art.
Alma Gluck
Being a new mother was a joyful and sometimes overwhelming experience – and as the first Missouri female state legislator to have a baby while in office, having heath care for myself and my son gave me some needed peace of mind.
Claire McCaskill
The response to Pride has been so overwhelming. I mean, people have really loved it. And it’s so rewarding because we had such a fun time making that film, and it was made with so much heart, that it’s lovely that people seem to be responding in kind to that.
Rosamund Pike
When you’re on stage and the stars are aligned and the audience is as one and you’re guiding them, steering them… It’s a feeling of incredible potency, of unity, of such, such joy. It’s almost overwhelming to know that you’re making that number of people feel better.
Michael Ball
While there is a great value in things that are old, it seems that the overwhelming challenge in Britain in the late 20th century is to make every effort to see value in the contemporary and in the future.
Stephen Bayley
I actually, legitimately feel that I’m not busy enough. I want to be so busy that it’s overwhelming.
Fred Armisen
I think you can get to a point where nihilism, if that’s the right word, is overwhelming, and the basic laws that society has set up – either religious or social laws – become meaningless.
Bruce Springsteen
I remember I had a low point when I was working on a soap opera, ‘General Hospital,’ five years ago. It was my first real job, and it was so overwhelming. You would work five days a week and have to learn sometimes up to 30 pages of new dialogue a night, then have one take to shoot it all, the next day.
Lindsey Morgan
People think that saving the planet or finding their place in that effort is a really overwhelming thought.
Nikki Reed
The overwhelming public sentiment in India was that no meaningful dialogue can be held with Pakistan until it abandons the use of terrorism as an instrument of its foreign policy.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
Hospitals are closing across the country due to the burden of illegal immigration, college students find that summer jobs have dried up due to illegal immigration, and wages across the board are depressed by the overwhelming influx of cheap and illegal labor.
Elton Gallegly
I can tell when one of my songs is played on the radio because everybody just starts calling and texting me. It gets overwhelming because if you don’t answer the right ones, they think you hate them, or you’re ignoring them and are not friends anymore. It’s all kind of crazy.
Thundercat
I had been watching 'Home and Away' for quite a while,

I had been watching ‘Home and Away’ for quite a while, so joining the cast was quite weird. The show is so fast-paced, and at first it was overwhelming, but at the same time was quite laid back.
Indiana Evans
You’re told to look good and to show Tupperware, and that was my job. Coming from that to being, like, ‘Oh my God, you’re a superstar’ – it’s almost overnight, and it’s overwhelming beyond belief.
Gena Lee Nolin
It is not overwhelming, like you are George Clooney, but at the Starbucks, at the 7-Eleven or walking around Manhattan or the Roosevelt Field Mall, I do get recognized. It’s nice.
Matt Serra
Unconditional love with someone you’ve never met is a straightforward feeling that is so overwhelming and fulfilling.
Marina Abramovic
There is overwhelming bipartisan support outside of Washington that we need to finally secure our borders, enforce our laws, and stop the problem of illegal immigration.
Ted Cruz
It’s hard not to love Roomba. Roomba had such an amazing impact on the field. When we launched, we asked people, ‘Is it a robot?’ and got an overwhelming no – ‘robots’ have arms and legs; they command data. There was a very strong perception that robots had to look like people.
Colin Angle
I think I present an overwhelming case that these five justices were up to no good, and they deliberately set out to hand the election to George Bush.
Vincent Bugliosi
I think with my journey so far, it never felt like an overwhelming, overnight success story. I think that’s good for me because I really got to take my time.
Tori Kelly
Personally, I find it very hard to absent myself from any situation, due to overwhelming self-consciousness. There’s always a voice in my head passing comment and making sure nothing can be enjoyed for what it is.
Richard Herring
Having learned something, we tend to cling to that belief, even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. New information comes in all time, and the thing we ought to be thinking about doing is changing our beliefs as that new information comes in.
Daniel Levitin
I have the love and support of people, which is overwhelming.
Nagma
When I first heard that I had won the prize, I thought that it was something for myself, that it was something personal, recognition of my writings. But there is such a strong reaction from Chinese people in particular. It’s been very passionate, overwhelming and passionate, Chinese people from all over the world.
Gao Xingjian
Sometimes, when you’re doing too much, things get overwhelming. So I just have to calm myself down and think, ‘What would my mama want me to do?’
Megan Thee Stallion
Daesh thought it could exploit the vulnerability of the Iraqi state, but it underestimated the overwhelming desire of the Iraqi people for unity.
Haider al-Abadi
Geekiness is that feeling of overwhelming passion for that thing in life that you focus on. Whether it be a nephew’s first few steps or the timbre in one’s voice when discussing the latest Cohen brothers film.
Harry Knowles
What a joy to be working on the second series of ‘Car Share’ with the wonderful Sian Gibson. The success of the first series has been completely overwhelming.
Peter Kay
Anyone who considers using a weapon of mass destruction against the United States or its allies must first consider the consequences… We would not specify in advance what our response would be, but it would be both overwhelming and devastating.
William J. Perry
