10 QUOTES WITH «WASTED»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word wasted.
1
Amy Adams
Thirty was a big deal for me. It was the age where I reevaluated everything - how I approached life and how I thought about myself. When I look at my 20s, or when I look at any period in my life, I think about how much time I've wasted trying to find the right man.
2
Aesop
The level of our success is limited only by our imagination and no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted.

A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
4
Katy B
The nice way to meet a guy is through getting to know them first. Then you can really judge their personality. What I can't take is meeting someone, going on a date, getting to know them, then finding out they're a complete psycho - 'Great, I've just wasted all this time on you!'

Richard Harris Barham
His eyes so dim, so wasted each limb, that, heedless of grammar, they all cried, that's him!

Cancer taught me to stop saving things for a special occasion. Every day is special. You don't have to get cancer to start living life to the fullest. My post-cancer philosophy? No wasted time. No ugly clothes. No boring movies.

Vince Cable

9
Charlie Chaplin
A day without laughter is a day wasted.
10
David Chipperfield
I like to be surrounded by books. My wife Evelyn has a Ph.D. in comparative literature, so we have a lot of her Spanish and German literature books which are wasted on me, plus a lot of novels and books on art and architecture shared by us both. Evelyn used to edit an art magazine called 'FMR,' so we have a common interest in design.
