A human being who wakened in the morning with a queasy stomach, with fifteen hours to kill before next bedtime, had not much use for freedom.  Jean-Paul Sartre

 

 

A bore is someone who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company.  Oscar Wilde

Passion always goes, and boredom stays.  Coco Chanel

A quarter of America is a dramatic, tense, violent country, exploding with contradictions, full of brutal, physiological vitality, and that is the America that I have really loved and love.  But a good half of it is a country of boredom, emptiness, monotony, brainless production, and brainless consumption, and this is the American inferno.  Italo Calvino

I’m bored with it all.  Winston Churchill, reported last words

 

 

Boredom forces you to ring people you haven’t seen for eighteen years and halfway through the conversation you remember why you left it so long.  Boredom means you start to read not only mail-order catalogues but also the advertising inserts that fall on the floor.  Boredom gives you half a mind to get a gun and go berserk in the local shopping centre, and you know where this is going.  Eventually, boredom means you will take up golf.  Jeremy Clarkson, The World According to Clarkson

 

 

The truth is that everyone is bored, and devotes himself to cultivating habits.  Albert Camus, The Plague
