The trouble is with socialism, which resembles a form of mental illness more than it does a philosophy. Socialists get bees in their bonnets. And because they chronically lack any critical faculty to examine and evaluate their ideas, and because they are pathologically unwilling to consider the opinions of others, and most of all, because socialism is a mindset that regards the individual – and his rights – as insignificant, compared to whatever the socialist believes the group needs, terrible, terrible things happen when socialists acquire power.l. neil smith

It is no more easy to make a good picture than it is to find a diamond or a pearl. It means trouble and you risk your life for it.vincent van gogh

Double, double toil and trouble, Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.william shakespeare
The trouble with poverty, as an issue, is that it has basically exhausted the patience of the general public.
The trouble with me is, I always have to read that stuff by myself. If an actor reads it out, I hardly listen. I keep worrying about whether he's going to do something phoney every minute.
[W]e avenge intelligence when we deceive a fool, and the victory is worth the trouble[.]giacomo casanova

I'm very well liked in Hartford. You know, the trouble is, Linda, people don't seem to take to me.Arthur Miller
Christ and His cross are not separable in this life, howbeit Christ and His cross part at heaven's door, for there is no house-room for crosses in heaven. One tear, one sigh, one sad heart, one fear, one loss, one thought of trouble cannot find lodging there.
