William J. Murray
Sometimes it’s easy to see the negative side of things or question why people bully you. You could think, ‘Maybe they’re right. Maybe I’m not worth it. Maybe I should just quit.’ But that’s when you should fight the hardest. Now I don’t mean fight physically, but mentally. Keep being you.
Raini Rodriguez

As a former lifelong Republican, it pains me to tell you that today’s Republicans – and their standard-bearers, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan – just aren’t up to the task.

I am a strong advocate for Marco Rubio. I think he is the kind of individual and leader who can expand our party. I heard him in Virginia Beach, and he talked about loving those with whom he disagrees and those who didn’t vote for him. I don’t think that’s in Donald Trump. He is nothing more than a bully.
Scott Rigell

Well I think it is often the case that the biggest bullies take what they know to be their own defects, as they see it, and they put them right on someone else and then they try and destroy the other and that’s what Voldemort does.
J. K. Rowling
No bully ever turns down a free shot when his posse pins back your arms.
Rick Wilson
My message to kids who bully other kids is: You know it’s wrong! What’s really going on? Try not to make somebody else’s life miserable because you are.
Joe Nichols
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Jim Rohn
My fantasy is that I could wake up looking amazing, that I could be strong and stop the bully, but that everybody would love me, too. I think that’s intrinsic to fantasy – fantasy is fantasy.
Patty Jenkins
I didn’t know my own strength. I wasn’t a bully or anything, but I’d be out playing and end up hurting someone. So I had to sit out or play with older kids.
Mark Henry
It’s not my nature to dominate and bully.
Juliette Lewis
It’s remarkable to watch the president, with all the weight of his ability to command rhetoric with the bully pulpit behind him, make a clear speech about climate change and why that’s so important for us all to focus on. And that is a rather remarkable thing to see. It’s enormously powerful.
Josh Fox
It is insufficient to say that my experience as a bully haunts me. Rather, my experience as a bully has been fundamental to the creation of my conscience, because it is what prevents me from making the basic human claim that I am a good person.
Tom Junod
I never thought black people would say I wasn’t black enough. It didn’t turn me into a bully – it just put me on the defensive. I had to watch my back. It made me stronger because I learned how to deal with ignorance.
Tionne Watkins
Trolls want reactions. Don’t become a bully because they’re bullying you!
Ananya Panday
I’ve realized that you become a bully if you are just watching someone get bullied and you don’t say anything. Speak up!
Emma Roberts
Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim.
Tim Field
When I was growing up, particularly during puberty in my teen years, I was so miserable because I elicited so much teasing and meanness from my teenage cohorts.
Linda Hunt
The hard work, you discover over the years, is in learning to discern between correct and incorrect anxiety, between the anxiety that’s trying to warn you about a real danger and the anxiety that’s nothing more than a lying, sadistic, unrepentant bully in your head.
Daniel Smith
Zbigniew Brzezinski, you know, who was one of the authors of U.S. dominance, he’s changed his mind, you know, and he’s saying now we’ve got to learn to cooperate with other world powers. We are not the bully in the schoolyard here.We’ve got to deal with them. And that’s my feeling.
Jill Stein
Computers can bully us. A slow and unreliable system will bring even the toughest soul to their knees as they find themselves completely defenseless against the erratic whims of their rogue machine.
Lou Ferrigno
I was bullied a lot in middle school, and my bullies have since all apologized.
Rachel Bloom
My media considers the left media to be the bullies on the playground.
Andrew Breitbart
Donald [Trump] has had a long career of using great wealth and power trying to bully others.
Ted Cruz
He will have to learn, I know, that all people are not just- that all men and women are not true. Teach him that for every scoundrel there is a hero that for every enemy there is a friend. Let him learn early that the bullies are the easiest people to lick.
Abraham Lincoln
A lot of times in America, we work on bully muscles. We want the big muscles and the stuff that looks good. But we don’t focus on the little things. But that’s the stuff that sustains you and keeps you strong.
Andre Ward
Not everyone has been a bully or the victim of bullies, but everyone has seen bullying, and seeing it, has responded to it by joining in or objecting, by laughing or keeping silent, by feeling disgusted or feeling interested.
Octavia Butler
Any anti-bullying scheme, initiative or policy which fails to mention accountability for the bullies is likely to meet with little, and often no, success
Tim Field
It is our choices… that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
J. K. Rowling
People are legitimately worried about Donald Trump, almost like a schoolyard bully, if I step up, am I going to be targeted, too?
Reid Hoffman
People who love themselves, don’t hurt other people. The more we hate ourselves, the more we want others to suffer.
Daniel Pearce
Technology is a double-edged sword for sure. You can use it to get in touch with somebody, to get to know somebody, to have really meaningful conversations, or you can use it to hurt and bully people.
Shannon Purser
People say sticks and stones may break your bones, but names can never hurt you, but that’s not true. Words can hurt. They hurt me. Things were said to me that I still haven’t forgotten.
Demi Lovato
My singing silenced the bullies, but better than that, it silenced the demons inside me. When you’re jeered at, told to shut up, sit still, stop being silly, there’s a cacophony of noise rolling around in your head. When I was singing, it was peaceful.
Susan Boyle
Humans are threatened by anything different, and their response is to fight. They’re bullies, picking on the weak, cowering from the strong.
J.R. Ward
We are all told to ignore bullies. It’s something they teach you, and they can teach you anything. It doesn’t mean you learn it. It doesn’t mean you believe it. One should never ignore bullies. One should stop them.
Daniel Handler
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Eleanor Roosevelt
I only have disdain for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He raised taxes and has increased regulations. What else is new? He’s a bully who wants to micro-manage people’s lives by mandate, not persuasion.
Mark Skousen
As for kids who are struggling personally, ignore the bullies! Who cares what they think? A lot of the time, they’re not thinking, so you shouldn’t take their words to heart. Ignore, ignore, ignore, and keep pushing forward.
Nolan Gould
When I was old enough to realize all meat was killed, I saw it as an irrational way of using our power, to take a weaker thing and mutilate it. It was like the way bullies would take control of younger kids in the schoolyard.
River Phoenix
I think it’s obvious why someone wouldn’t personally want to see these words on their feed, but I’m also concerned about the overall negative environment created when the comment section becomes a battleground for people to bully each other. I signed up for this.
Chrissy Teigen
There are a group of people who would like to silence everybody and have everyone go along to get along, but that’s not going to be very helpful for us in the long run in terms of solving our problems, and someone has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to the bullies.
Benjamin Carson
Eagerness to please attracts bullies and bores.
Mason Cooley
I think President Obama has used the bully pulpit as a way to attack capitalism.
Jeb Bush
With any kind of mean girl, or anyone who bullies anyone, there’s always a reason for it. There is that sadness in them or insecurity that makes them feel like they need to act out or hurt other people.
Maiara Walsh
Neptune controls Pluto’s orbit. Neptune is the bully of that neighborhood.
Mike Brown
Liston is like most big bullies, if you can stay away and make him miss for a few rounds he’ll get frustrated. Once you strip away that feeling of invincibility, he can be had.
Rocky Marciano
There really is no difference between the bully and the victim.
Lady Gaga
The real truth is that the Obama administration is professional at bullying, as we have witnessed with ACORN at work during the presidential campaign. It seems to me they are sending down their bullies to create fist fights among average American citizens who don’t want a government-run health care plan forced upon them.
Jon Voight
I must be doing something right. I was raised to stand up to the bully in the schoolyard, and you don’t lose that.
Barbara Boxer
Punch after punch after punch. February is a mean bully. Nothing could be worse – except August.
Katherine Paterson
You have to bully a guy like Fury – notice I don’t call him ‘Tyson.’ Truthfully you have to run up on a big guy like Fury and pummel him. He’s the type of guy who’s strong and determined but he’s slow. His awkwardness is his positive.
Shannon Briggs
There is a real effort to bully women out of public spaces and offline with violent intimidation. That issue speaks not just to casual sexism, which is more common, but actual, violent hatred of women by some.
Tara Moss
The problem with copyright enforcement is that when the parameters aren’t incredibly well defined, it means big corporations, who have deeper pockets and better lawyers, can bully people.
Shepard Fairey
It is impossible to fight bullies merely by saying they’re going too far.
Robert Reich
Every good quality runs into a defect; economy borders on avarice, the generous are not far from the prodigal, the brave man is close to the bully; he who is very pious is slightly sanctimonious; there are just as many vices to virtue as there are holes in the mantle of Diogenes.
Victor Hugo
Remember, I’m the kind of kid who used to get stuffed into a locker by school bullies. I’ve never felt like I’m a big star at any level of my life.
Winona Ryder
I know the problem of obesity. I got to tell you, I think that’s tepid. I just don’t think the bully pulpit is going to be enough to sufficiently fight obesity. We’re going to have to have incentives in here.
Max Baucus
It is the lack of knowledge of, or the unwillingness to recognise, or the deliberate denial of the existence of the serial bully which is the most common reason for an unsatisfactory outcome for both employee and employer.
Tim Field
A bully hides his fears with fake bravado. That is the opposite of self-assertiveness.
Nathaniel Branden
Unfortunately, there’s a big, bad new bully threatening ocean animals, climate change. We might save fish only to have them starve because of climate change. It seems like the problems just won’t stop. That’s what got me to quit my cushy University job and take a big pay cut to work on conservation.
Mark Powell
If anyone tries to bully you don’t let them. Take the positive energy form a ball of rainbow power and just, like shove it.
Ariana Grande
One of the great attractions of patriotism
Aldous Huxley
A bully can only make you feel bad about yourself if you let them.
David Walliams
When you talk about bullying I always go back to when I was at school, a bully was a big kid picking on a little kid.
Troy Deeney
Even when I was at school, I wanted to be liked by everyone, even the bullies. I didn’t like them, but I needed to know that they liked me.
Alex Kingston
I don’t understand why or how we can bully each other.
Aurora Aksnes
We’re not excusing the ones who are mean, but I want girls to understand the psychology. It’s not in everyone. But the bully needs to put this pain somewhere.
Elizabeth Berkley
Bullies are just ignorant.
Josh Hutcherson
People tend to favor the underdog, like in the movies we favor the underdog, but when it comes to voting, we vote for the bully. It’s so strange.
Jon Gnarr
When men set out to kill and bully, they dress up. Suit of armor. Combat boots. Uniform.
Timothy Leary
You can’t have a bully without a victim.
Larry Winget
The bullying was hideous and relentless, and we turned it round by making ourselves celebrities.
Julian Clary
I was of the type who gets bullied rather than the one who does the bullying, which I’m glad about. I’d rather be that than a bully.
Lily Cole
When you’re a young actor you like to go for characters with a bit of flair, so in many films I ended up playing the weirdos. But I can assure you I’m not a psycho or a criminal or a bully.
Kiefer Sutherland
Not everyone has been a bully or the victim of bullies, but everyone has seen bullying, and seeing it, has responded to it by joining in or objecting, by laughing or keeping silent, by feeling disgusted or feeling interested.
Octavia E. Butler
The fool thinks he has won a battle when he bullies with harsh speech, but knowing how to be forbearing alone makes one victorious.
Gautama Buddha
I never caught on to being a bully.
Nick Nolte
I used to think Janhvi was a quiet girl, but she is a big bully.
Ishaan Khatter
When a bully pulls your hair, you punch him in the face.
Max Holloway
I do not at all have the mind of a bully… in my mind bullies are intolerant of contrary opinion, domineering and rather cowardly. I would hope that none of those terms could be fairly used in describing me.
Conrad Black
Not all forms of abuse leave bruises.
Danielle Steel
Amazon’s capitulation to those opposed to their expansion in New York City is an epic moment for people power over an enormous corporate bully.
Zephyr Teachout
If you’re gay, that doesn’t mean I want to discriminate against you, belittle or bully you, abuse or offend you. Not at all. I don’t want to go back to the dark days of criminalisation and the imprisonment of gay men and women; of Section 28 and legalised discrimination.
Mehdi Hasan
Yes, I was a bully. But the scrapping on the streets was my way of dealing with the anger I felt towards my parents.
Mark Hunt
Comedy should be a source of positivity. I don’t want to bully people, and I don’t want people to come to my show to feel terrible about something. I’m actually very open to having a conversation about what I should or shouldn’t say.
Bo Burnham
The way to work with a bully is to take the ball and go home. First time, every time. When there’s no ball, there’s no game. Bullies hate that. So they’ll either behave so they can play with you or they’ll go bully someone else.
Seth Godin
In high school, you re either a bully, a jock or a nerd, and I somehow tried to jump between camps by using humor. It’s amazing how you can blend in with that.
David Hewlett
No need to bully, start fights, talk trash, or hate on anyone because they are different.
Mateus Ward
I was very fortunate and didn’t personally encounter any bullies in school, however bullies exist in many ways in life.
Josh Hutcherson
I used to get bullied by the popular girls at school. Today, I am the popular girl, and the bullies come to my shows.
Lady Gaga
America is a bunch o’ bullies. Tell me what the Iraq uniform is like. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.
Katt Williams
Patriarchy is a bully notion, which if you will notice never attacks a nation that can defend itself. Zionism is patriarchal and sets Judaism on its head.
Roseanne Barr
Playing gangsters is great. They usually dress you sharp. And you have a license to pretty much bully anybody. I mean, I wouldn’t dare do that at home. My wife will give me a back hander.
Alex Rocco
I appreciate the power of a White House bully pulpit – but kids listen and learn primarily from other kids. If your son’s friend tells him that the apple is better than the fries, he’s more likely to listen.
Dean Ornish
When we lose our individual independence in the corporateness of a mass movement, we find a new freedom — freedom to hate, bully, lie, torture, murder and betray without shame and remorse.
Eric Hoffer
At any Trump rally, the Trump supporters were peaceful. They were enthusiastic. They loved America. They were excited. They were pro Trump. They were not bullies. They were not angry. They were not doing anything unless they were provoked.
Rush Limbaugh
Shouldn’t homophobic politicians and anti-gay bullies be presumed to be gay until they get caught up in a straight sex scandal?
Dan Savage
My parents were laborers so we lived on South Park, which was a low-income region of Seattle. You had a choice – you either joined or formed a gang or you let others bully you.
Jack Bowman
The worst bullies you will ever encounter in your life are your own thoughts.
Bryant H. McGill
If you let a bully intimidate you, he’s going to do it again. You’ve got to stand up to these strong-arm tactics.
Charles Djou
You know, for a normal kid it might be how to ask somebody out on a date or how to deal with the SATs or just how to deal with the bully down the block. And the X-Men have the conflict of Magneto or aliens or what-have-you.
Chris Claremont
It’s difficult to expect kids not to bully one another when they don’t have many examples otherwise in society.
Dana Loesch
Where London’s column, pointing at the skies, Like a tall bully, lifts the head, and lies.
Alexander Pope
The best indicator of a sociopath serial bully is not a clinical diagnosis but the trail of devastation and destruction of lives and livelihoods surrounding this individual throughout their life.
Tim Field
I don’t like injustice. We’re living in a time where, whether it’s the Internet or tabloids, being sh-tty has become a sport. We’re just grown-up bullies.
Jennifer Aniston
Bullies want to abuse you. Instead of allowing that, you can use them as your personal motivators. Power up and let the bully eat your dust.
Nick Vujicic
A lot of fighters, Cruz got under their skin. The guy’s a dork and he tries to be a bully.
Cody Garbrandt
The most influential person in the room isn’t the one who is being a bully, talking loudly, and imposing him- or herself on others. Surrendered people understand that true power comes from being respectful and listening.
Judith Orloff
I don’t understand why or how we can bully each other.
All the kids at school would bully me and always wanted me to fight them. I never did, but if I wanted to, I totally could.
One of the most horrifying and surprising evolutions we have witnessed among our widespread campus network is the rapid movement away from tolerating opposing ideas and respectful debate to the deployment of obscene bully tactics from the left.
Charlie Kirk
The kid who is scared is the one the bullies go after. I used to get beat up pretty badly.
Robert M. Pirsig
Bullies, oppressors and all men who do violence to the rights of others are guilty not only of their own crimes, but also of the corruption they bring into the hearts of their victims.
Alessandro Manzoni
Part of the problem is that we don’t have enough Democrats that will actually stand toe-to-toe with this bully Donald Trump and fight for the rights and values of this republic.
Michael Avenatti
You can’t stand for too many things. You can’t use the bully pulpit for too many things. So, I promise you, every day, I am going to talk about jobs, spending, and education.
Meg Whitman
Government’s power to bully people who have broken no law is dangerous to all of us.
Thomas Sowell
If I must be ruled by larcenous bullies, I much prefer that they be located far away. Local bullies know far more about me and my doings than faraway bullies sitting in offices in Washington, and can oppress me far more effectively.
Henry Spencer
Sometimes when jerks become Christians, it’s like a bully learning karate. Instead of having Christ transform our hearts and attitudes, we now have a new method with which to beat you up….what was once just ‘forcing everyone to agree with my opinion’ is now ‘forcing everyone to agree with my opinion in the name of God.
Jon Acuff
Remember always that you have not only the right to be an individual; you have an obligation to be one.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Cyber bullies can hide behind a mask of anonymity online, and do not need direct physical access to their victims to do unimaginable harm.
Anna Maria Chavez
You stand up to bullies. Don’t shrink back. You fight back with all your strength, and the press is going to have to do it, politicians are going to have to do it, all of us are going to have to do it.
Barbara Boxer
Far off, men swell, bully, and threaten; bring them hand to hand, and they are feeble folk.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Because I’m not blind to how Harry works, you know,” she said. “A bully with a charisma and top marks is still a bully.” She sighed, annoyed. “He’ll probably end up Prime Minister one day. God help us all.
Patrick Ness
I feel passionately about issues, and I don’t hide my emotions from people. I am not a focus group-tested, blow-dried candidate or governor. Now that has always made some people, you know, uneasy. Some people like that style, some people don’t. […] But I am not a bully.
Chris Christie
A bully is a bully, and it’s important that you stand up to them.
David Hogg
I was a bully while growing up.
Saqib Saleem
I am still bullied occasionally. However, none of my current bullies really exist. They’re all in my head. Be your own best friend instead of your worst enemy.
Abiola Abrams
There’s something people do to you when they bully you that makes you feel like you’re on your own. But don’t keep things inside, it’s really damaging if you do.
Jo Brand
You can either hope and pray you don’t get picked on, or you can, in a way, almost make yourself a bigger target, because it’s harder to bully something that’s really big. It’s easy to bully something that’s small and frail.
James Corden
I started writing my own things when I was about 8. I used to try to bully my friends into imitating the Spice Girls on the playground. Then I realized, Oh god, my career’s going nowhere, so I looked in the Yellow Pages and phoned up the first cheap studio that I found and started recording.
Charli XCX
I don’t think the victims should be babied, but there should be a counselor to teach them coping mechanisms. The bully needs counseling too.
Laura Michelle Kelly
None of us should play party to any corporate warfare. We cannot become pawns in the hands of corporate giants’ warfare to constantly bully the government, to throw misinformation to the public, tell part-truth and part-story to the public.
Nirmala Sitharaman
Our Animal Sanctuary initiative has many layers. We are aiming to create a place where abandoned and bullied creatures come together with bullied youth. We feel that bullies have leadership abilities, albeit these abilities are totally skewed and misdirected.
Ian Somerhalder
I want to take on fighters like Jeremy Stephens, Andre Fili… get ourselves into the Octagon and see if these guys can bully me.
Alexander Volkanovski
Let us recognize that we can no longer tolerate violent oppression of women in the name of religion and culture any more than we would tolerate violent oppression espoused by any other bully in the name of a twisted rationale.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
When I was 10, I beat up the school bully. His arms were in casts. That’s what gave me the courage.
Emo Philips
I was a bully in fifth and sixth grade. I wasn’t one of the bullies – I wasn’t strong or dominant enough to be one of the kids who bullied everyone in equal measure. I was a bully, in that I bullied a kid, whose name I won’t mention here. My bullying was selective and personal.
Tom Junod
I hate a bully, and I hate racists.
Roddy Piper
It’s so funny: at ‘SNL,’ Bill Hader always kind of treated me like his little sister and would kind of, like, lovingly bully me.
Vanessa Bayer
It’s always good to get the bully back one day.
Jonny Gomes
Basil Fawlty was an easy character for me. For some reason, portraying a mean, uptight, incompetent bully comes naturally to me.
John Cleese
When you’re a young actor you like to go for characters with a bit of flair, so in many films I ended up playing the weirdos. I can assure you I’m not a psycho or a criminal or a bully.
Kiefer Sutherland
It is unmanly. It is not some expression of macho virtue. It is the absolute antithesis of this. Real men don’t bully women and children. Respect for women … is so important.
Malcolm Turnbull
I’m so old… when I was a kid, in order for someone to bully, they had to be bigger and stronger and more intimidating than the people they were bullying. Now with social media and Facebook and Twitter and all those other things, anyone can bully somebody.
Dan Donovan
People say history was written by the winners. No, it wasn’t. It was written by the bullies.
Colin Quinn
Everyone knew I was home-schooled. Everyone always said I was weird, and they’re kind of right. And I think people can always tell that I’m a weak link. So if you are going to bully someone, I’m an easy target.
Paige Spiranac
I don’t want nations feeling like that they can bully ourselves and our allies. I want to have a ballistic defense system so that we can make the world more peaceful, and at the same time I want to reduce our own nuclear capacities to the level commiserate with keeping the peace.
George W. Bush
The truth is that the gossip-hounds in Tinsel Town and the cackling windbags at ‘The View’ don’t want civility. They want catty (or dare I say it gay-ish) gossip and sensational headlines that provide them with an opportunity to hop on the bully pulpit.
Steven Crowder
A lot of people are afraid to tell the truth, to say no. That’s where toughness comes into play. Toughness is not being a bully. It’s having backbone.
Robert Kiyosaki
Be sure of yourself, don’t let anyone bully you, be a strong and independent woman or boy.
Nicole Polizzi
But they were going to war anyway and they were going to bully and pressure countries to vote for it.
Clare Short
The ability and inclination to use physical strength is no indication of bravery or tenacity to life. The greatest cowards are often the greatest bullies. Nothing is cheaper and more common than physical bravery.
Clarence Darrow
Religion can be a good thing, but basically the way I look at it is that it provides a moral code, common sense. But then people distort it and use it as an excuse to be a bully. It’s sad, but that’s the way it’s worked for a several thousand years now.
Donald Ray Pollock
Actually I feel sorry for the bully because they probably don’t have love and support at home.
Josh Flitter
When people don’t like themselves very much, they have to make up for it. The classic bully was actually a victim first.
Tom Hiddleston
I dont want any injustice brought against the bullies. Bullies just dont know any better. Anyone who is crying about police brutality or victimization as an adult needs to stop it and realize the privileges we have in this country.
Ariel Pink
I bully myself cause I make me do what I put my mind to.
Music is a good thing; and after all that soul-butter and hogwash, I never see it freshen up things so, and sound so honest and bully.
Mark Twain
You always have to remember that bullies want to bring you down because you have something that they admire. Also, when you get made fun of-when people point out your weaknesses, it’s an opportunity for you to rise above.
Zac Efron
I daydreamed that when you grow up there are more bullies and how wonderful that would be if it were true, but, it’s not.
Taylor Swift
Prince Charles has his foibles, but he is not a crook, not a bully, and not a hypocrite.
Penny Junor
I don’t like bullies. No one has a right to take or to hurt just because they can.
Pittacus Lore
I never got beaten up, because I was a wisecracking jokester. I could make a bully laugh before he delivered a punch.
Garry Marshall
I like dealing with a peer so I can bully them. Because then, it’s not bullying. It’s just warfare.
Tilman J. Fertitta
Bullies are often people who are shy and can’t make friends easily, so, as the theme of the movie ‘A Bronx Tale’ tells us, it is better to be feared if you can’t be loved.
Philip Zimbardo
I’ve always been the biggest bully to myself.
Keala Settle
Everyone in America likely has a bullying story, whether as the victim, bully or as a witness.
Mike Honda
The serial bully, who in my estimation accounts for about one person in thirty in society, is the single most important threat to the effectiveness of organisations, the profitability of industry, the performance of the economy, and the prosperity of society.
Tim Field
Just because there are celebrities in a movie, it doesn’t mean anything. I don’t think The Ant Bully did all that well the first week at the box office. Compare the movies that have a lot of celebrities with the Jimmy Neutron movie, which had no celebrity voices and grossed almost one hundred million dollars.
Rob Paulsen
In fact, most people who are bullies are people who have been abused in one way or the other in some other part of their life, and somebody who is bullied at school might come home and bully their younger siblings or their cousins or other people in their neighborhood, or in cyberspace.
Kerry Kennedy
When I was in seventh grade, I was a scrawny boy with no muscles, so I went out for wrestling. My intention was to develop secret wrestling skills so that if I were jumped by a bully, I’d shout, ‘Ha!’ and he’d be on the ground in a headlock.
W. Bruce Cameron
With a body like he has, I want him to be a bully. But he is too nice – he is perfect son-in-law material, but I don’t want a team of son-in-laws.
Graeme Souness
When Matt Bevin tried to bully teachers and illegally cut their pensions, I proudly stood with them to fight back and win.
Andy Beshear
I think to deal with Putin, you need to deal from strength. He’s a bully, you enable bad behavior when you’re nuanced with a guy like that.
Jeb Bush
With acting, I’ve always gotten by in life acting in situations. I’m a small person. I didn’t have a chance to be a bully. But I could always act myself out of tough situations.
T’Keyah Crystal Keymah
Planets are the big bullies of the planetary system that are, that basically ignore everybody else around them. And everybody else has to deal with the planets. Those are what the planets are.
Mike Brown
The problems of reporting a bully – or, if you are a bully, of becoming less of one – become much more intractable, because your reputation surrounds you, and behavioral patterns are harder to escape.
Maria Konnikova
Ever since the collapse of cap and trade legislation and the realization that President Obama is unlikely to ever utter the words ‘climate change’ in public again, much less use the bully pulpit to prepare the nation for the catastrophic risks of inaction, the movement has been in a funk.
Jeff Goodell
I am who I am, but I am not a bully.
Chris Christie
There’s only one thing a bully respected: bigger bully.
Lisa Kleypas
We admire people who work hard, who are objective and thorough. We detest office politicians, toadies, bullies, and pompous asses. We abhor ruthlessness. The way up our ladder is open to everybody. In promoting people to top jobs, we are influenced as much by their character as anything else.
David Ogilvy
There are more ways to bully each other now with the Internet but there are also more ways to talk about it and more people that you can reach and more connections to be made over the Internet.
Carrie Hope Fletcher
I’m known as the ankle bully, and I’m the CEO of it because I’ve made a lot of people fall during my lifetime.
LaMelo Ball
Most organisations have a serial bully. It never ceases to amaze me how one person’s divisive dysfunctional behaviour can permeate the entire organisation like a cancer.
Tim Field
Negotiation is empathy. It’s almost trite to say that if you can’t put yourself in the seat of the other person you’re speaking with, you’re not going to do well. It’s not about being a bully, not about making offers people can’t refuse.
Marc Randolph
Getting past the influence of the fossil fuel industry will take courage, especially on the part of the Republican majority whom they so relentlessly bully and cajole. But we must do it.
Sheldon Whitehouse
Bullies are ultimately unhappy people who try to inflict pain and hate on others and are to be pitied. Once you realize that, their words can no longer hurt you.
Frankie J. Grande
The truth is a bully we all pretend to like
Gregory David Roberts
If anything, we should feel sorry for the people who want us to feel bad about ourselves, because they are the ones struggling for approval. In middle school, bullies tortured other kids because they thought it would make people like them more.
Ariana Grande
I don’t feel the need to defend myself anymore – I am a woman. I feel differently and I think differently than a man. If you’re going to bully me or laugh at me because something makes me emotional – you go right ahead because that’s what makes me a woman, and I don’t want to be anything but that.
Erin Brockovich
He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions.
Louisa May Alcott
A bully is going to be a bully, and you have to stand up for yourself. You can’t expect everyone else is going to come and run to your aid. You have to stand your ground; that’s very important.

America has an identity crisis. This is a relatively new country compared to the rest of the world, yet it’s the bully that fronts to know war and democracy like none other, therefore leading the global arbitration on both fronts.

Amazon has historically been a bully, and I don’t shop there. But I love Goodreads. For the record.

We can’t leave the internet to the bullies. You deserve to speak out and be heard just as much as the next man. Don’t let bullies silence you. Support others, and make sure you look after yourself.

Who has not seen how women bully women? What tortures have men to endure compared to those daily repeated shafts of scorn and cruelty with which poor women are riddled by the tyrants of their sex?
William Makepeace Thackeray
The Million Dollar Man was to professional wrestling what Ebenezer Scrooge is to Christmas. He was like a rich bully. He bullied everybody with his money, and his motto was ‘Everybody’s got a price.’
Ted DiBiase Sr.
Do you remember when you were 10 or 11 years old and you really thought your folks were the best? They were completely omniscient and you took their word for everything. And then you got older and you went through this hideous age when suddenly they were the devil, they were bullies, and they didn’t know anything.
Chuck Palahniuk
Don’t everlastingly read messages into paintings – there’s the Daisy – you don’t rave over or read messages into it – you just look at that bully little flower – isn’t that enough?
