I’m very free with all my emotions, whether it’s happy, sad, mad, glad, whatever.

There are a lot of people who consider themselves ‘spiritual,’ but that can mean a lot of things to a lot of people.

That’s kind of sad.

My mother and father were very strange people. They tried to be funny which is always very sad to me.

It is sad that so many designers don’t know how to make. CAD software can make a bad design look palatable! It is sad that four years can be spent on a 3D design course without making anything! People who are great at designing and making have a great advantage.
My private life’s quite sad.

Sadness is but a wall between two gardens.

Sad old blokes, I’m told, now dream of me with a whip in hand.
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.
It was sad leaving the BBC; not quite like being divorced, but you don’t leave after a period stretching from 1960 to 1999 without feeling a certain number of pangs.

I was a fan of ‘Six Feet Under’ and was very sad when it ended, so I was not ready to switch my allegiance to another show. So I was like, ‘I’m not watching this ‘True Blood.’ Then a friend got a bootleg copy of the first four episodes, and by the third one, I was irrevocably hooked.
I think that’s very sad, that I haven’t allowed my heart to be broken. I have broken a few.

Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.
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.
It is a sad commentary that today we face a choice between having schools that are a monument to our past – or schools that will be the lifeblood of our future. But since that is our choice, let us resolve to choose wisely.
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.
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.
Wrap parties can be really sad, actually, disorienting.
I grew up thinking that it’s okay to be sad, angry, and express your emotions. I have also banged doors and fought, as I have seen my mom do that when she would fight with my dad. Everything that I’ve learnt is from them, so I’ve never struggled to express myself.

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.
I was a sad kid.
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.
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.
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.

As I get older, my perspective changes, and I just see how relationships aren’t always what they appear to be. It’s one of those sad but true things.

Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough.
I don’t think films about working class people are sad at all; I think they’re funny and lively and invigorating and warm and generous and full of good things.

I probably never would have been hired on Broadway had I not moved out to L.A. and pursued acting and film, which is sad, really.
With Facebook, you’re not really allowed to be unhappy. Think about it: There’s only a like button. Yes, you can be angry, but it’s only lighthearted rage. On Reddit, perhaps because you can be anonymous, people are willing to be openly sad or angry. They are more honest.
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.

These days young kids don’t have any place to form an epic adventure. It’s more often in front of the TV screen or a laptop. That’s very hard on them. They’re being taught daily unsocial skills. Facebook is an unsocial skill. It’s so sad.

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?

I was not enjoying walking out there and feeling like I didn’t know where the next run was coming from.
I think it’s good to eat a bit of everything, but when you eat too much junk food, it’s bad for you and for your brain. You don’t understand why, but you feel sad. It’s because of the junk food!

I’m sad that it’s uncool or offensive to talk about environmental or human rights issues.
What’s really sad is that so many young women between the ages of 16 and 25 are ignorant and they already believe that women get the same pay as men. They don’t even really understand that equality hasn’t happened with the pay force.

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.
Every life has a measure of sorrow, and sometimes this is what awakens us.
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.

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.
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.

I’ve been getting into Nick Drake lately, the folk singer. Sad, gorgeous stuff.
The Beach Boys were my favorite. I use to listen to their hits over and over, especially ‘In My Room’ and ‘Don’t Worry Baby.’ There’s something really sad about ‘Don’t Worry Baby.’ Even though it’s just a California song about racing cars, the melody is really sad. There’s melancholy in it.
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.
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.
