Quotes Hank Moody

”A morning of awkwardness is far better then a night of loneliness”

 

”It is possible that longing for something is better than actually having it. I’ve heard it said that satisfaction is the death of the desire.”

 

”Don’t tell me what to feel. All my fucking life, people have been telling me I do things wrong. I’m always the fucking asshole. I look around and I see everybody else is infinitely more fucked up than I am.”

 

”Whatever you do, don’t be another brick in the wall!”

 

”You know, most people, they go their whole life, and they never really find somebody they love. They say they do because everybody’s the star of their own little romantic comedy, but they’re full of shit.”

 

”How can you be so fucking beautiful and so fucking wrong?”

 

”I don’t just say shit. I mean, I do talk a lot of shit, but I generally mean what I say and I say what I mean.”

 

”Regrets are for pussies. Shit happens, deal with it.”

 

“I’ve lost a lot of battles, but I’ve never lost sight of the war. My goal is to fight my way to a day when we’re old and gray and she looks at me and says ‘I’m glad you never gave up.’ Until then, I fight. No retreat, baby. No surrender.”

 

”Despite all evidence to the contrary, I am a gentleman.

 

“You’re right. You should probably do your best not to fall in love with me.”

 

“Another interest I have pursued is the opposite sex – the females, the ladies – and not to brag but let’s just say I’ve had a little more success than I’ve had with the food service industry. Good in the sack, or so I’ve been told. Seriously – I can get references – although maybe not my last girlfriend, who for reasons that that are still unclear stabbed me with a knife.”

 

“The groom should not see you in the dress just before the wedding, that’s bad luck. You know what’s worst luck? Is getting married, itself. I’ve read studies. It’s like 2 out of 3 of those end in divorce, sometimes more. 3 out of 2, some.”

 

“That was not sex. That was naked poetry.”

 

”I find myself telling her how beautiful she is anyway. ‘Cause it’s true, all women are, in one way or another. You know, there’s always something about every damn one of you, it’s a smile, a curve, a secret. You ladies really are the most amazing creatures, my life’s work. But then there’s the morning after, a hangover, and the realization that I’m not quite as available as I thought I was the night before. And then she’s gone, and I’m haunted by yet another road not taken.”

 

”She said one thing and I said another and the next thing I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the middle of that conversation.”

 

Hank Moody kon het mooi vertellen, maar ook Steve McQueen gooide er zo nu en dan een mooie quote uit.
