How often feelings are circular. How embarrassing to be embarrassed. How annoying to be annoyed.
I don’t care for success. The ideas sitting in my head are annoyed by, and envious of, that which I’ve already written.Anton Chekhov
I once spoke to a human geneticist who declared that the notion of intelligence was quite meaningless, so I tried calling him un intelligent. He was annoyed, and it did not appease him when I went on to ask how he came to attach such a clear meaning to the notion of lack of intelligence. We never spoke again.peter medawar
I think people who are unhappy are always proud of being so, and therefore do not like to be told that there is nothing grand about their unhappiness. A man who is melancholy because lack of exercise has upset his liver always believes that it is the loss of God, or the menace of Bolshevism, or some such dignified cause that makes him sad. When you tell people that happiness is a simple matter, they get annoyed with you.bertrand russell
Anyone who has declared someone else to be an idiot, a bad apple, is annoyed when it turns out in the end that he isn't.Friedrich Nietzsche, as quoted in The Seattle Massacre : The Ripper Case Series (2011) by J. J. Knight, p. vii
When everyone covets something, they are easily annoyed by it.Baltasar Gracián, The Art of Worldly Wisdom (1647), Maxim 85.
Che'l perder tempo a chi più sa più spiace. The wisest are the most annoyed at the loss of time.dante alighieri
Beware of sluggishness, annoyance and impatience, since they are the keys of all the evils. The person who commits sluggishness and slackness never at all discharges any rights (obligations); and the one who gets annoyed and restless, does never at all remain patient over the right (God's decree on him).Ibn Shu’ba al-Harrani, Tuhaf al-'Uqul, p.295
