Famous quotes containing the word boring:

    Most bad books get that way because their authors are engaged in trying to justify themselves. If a vain author is an alcoholic, then the most sympathetically portrayed character in his book will be an alcoholic. This sort of thing is very boring for outsiders.
    Stephen Vizinczey (b. 1933)

    I’m notorious for giving a bad interview. I’m an actor and I can’t help but feel I’m boring when I’m on as myself.
    Rock Hudson (1925–1985)

    I would not miss your face, your neck, your hands, your limbs, your bosom and certain other of your charms. Indeed, not to become boring by naming them all, I could do without you, Chloe, altogether.
    Martial (43–104)
