When someone shouts at you Quotes (139+)

In this article, we are going to talk about what should an appropriate reaction be when someone shouts at you.

We know these are uncomfortable situations that most of us had to/will have to deal with at least once in a lifetime. Keep reading for our recommendations. 

How to deal with people who shout at you

First you need to understand the reason someone is shouting at you so that you can act accordingly.

For example,  if a parent shouts at you, there is a big possibility that he is doing it because he wants your own good.

In such a case you might just want to control your own anger and walk away.

If a friend shouted at you then you must assertively reply saying that you don’t like someone to talk to you that way. 

In all cases you need to make it clear in an assertive way that this is not acceptable and that you are totally ready to completely avoid the person who does so.

People get angry and yell for several reasons. Sometimes, they don’t know how else to express their sense of helplessness.

They might want control, be overwhelmed, or seek attention.

When yelling is someone’s go-to method for dealing with challenges, they are unlikely to adopt a different tactic unless they must.

People who have lost control are irrational and can’t take in lots of details when you speak to them at the height of their anger.

They will, however, notice your tone. Talk calmly using your everyday voice.

It’s important to let the person yelling know you won’t have a conversation while they shout.

Tell them you want to listen to them, but not until they are calm. If you feel you are in danger, since the individual could become violent, go somewhere safe rather than hanging around.

It’s scary to be shouted at, but you can cope well if you stay unruffled.

Use a calm tone of voice as you inform the person yelling you will have a conversation when they are composed and approachable.

They will learn you don’t respond to them when they raise their voice and they must stay calm if they want to talk to you.

15.             “There is another dangerous component to armed robberies, one that I could never understand. I noticed some time ago that with each robbery I committed there was an intense out of control anger that gripped me. It was as if I was there to get something that was inherently mine, and I came to take it by force. I’ve heard many stories directly from individuals about how they just burst into stores with their guns drawn. They would be shouting at people, gun butting them sometimes for no reason at all. One individual told me that he ran into a store and jump kicked a fella who just stood there. The only reason he was kicked is that he was there.

It’s as if once you’ve overridden your conscience of going through with the act, it is replaced with anger and a level of brutality that is usually reserved for when you are fighting for your life. This, to me, is what makes armed robberies so dangerous—because the slightest provocation or any sudden movement by anyone could lead to them being shot or killed. It is always an extremely delicate and dicey situation because the armed robber is pulling the trigger out of fear more than anything else.”

― Drexel Deal, The Fight of My Life is Wrapped Up in My Father

9.   Many great writers address audiences who do not exist; to address passionately and sometimes with very great wisdom people who do not exist has this advantage – that there will always be a group of people who, seeing a man shouting apparently at somebody or other, and seeing nobody else in sight, will think it is they who are being addressed.

–    Wyndham Lewis

10.             After decades spent in rewrite rooms surrounded by other shouting writers, I discovered that I work best alone. I like being in charge of my time, working out the problems according to my own rhythms and being able to nap. That’s a big one, the napping on demand!

–    Maria Semple

11.             You do not get peace by shouting: Peace. Peace is a meaningless word; what we need is a glorious peace.

–    Napoleon Bonaparte

12.             I feel like shouting, hallelujah, all the time, when I think that I ever I knew Joseph Smith, the Prophet.

–    Brigham Young

13.             The slave will be free. Democracy in America will yet be a glorious reality; and when the top-stone of that temple of freedom which our fathers left unfinished shall be brought forth with shoutings and cries of grace unto it, when our now drooping Liberty lifts up her head and prospers, happy will he be who can say, with John Milton, “Among those who have something more than wished her welfare, I, too, have my charter and freehold of rejoicing to me and my heirs.”

–    John Greenleaf Whittier

14.             The fact that I’m shouting that I have Gangnam style makes people crack up. Imagine if Brad Pitt was singing the song – would it be funny? A twist is important when it comes to writing lyrics.

–    PSY

15.             We did respect [Bernard Leach], although we also were willing to challenge ideas and at least put forth our feelings about the way the pottery was run, about things that were done, about the pots we were making, etc. And we would get into sometimes some very fierce arguments. We’d be shouting at one another because of disagreements.

–    Warren MacKenzie

16.             I immediately split the crowd. I thought about coming on every night and shouting, ‘Gay pride, white power!’ just to confuse people.

–    Doug Stanhope

17.             My real pleasure is that 4 times a week 1,800 people are standing up and shouting on Broadway for an author who died hundreds of years ago.

–    Terry Hands

18.             I thought the original Communist revolutionaries coordinated themselves a bit better and didn’t go around shouting about it.

–    John Lennon

19.             Progress was a labyrinth … people plunging blindly in and then rushing wildly back, shouting that they had found it … the invisible king-the élan vital-the principle of evolution … writing a book, starting a war, founding a school.

– F. Scott Fitzgerald

20.             A panda walks into a tea room and ordered a salad and ate it. Then it pulled out a pistol, shot the man in the next table dead, and walked out. Everyone rushed after it, shouting “Stop! Stop! Why did you do that?” “Becuase I am a panda,” said the panda. “That’s what pandas do. If you don’t believe me, look in the dictionary.” So they looked in the dictionary and sure enough they found Panda: Racoon-like animal of Asia. Eats shoots and leaves.

–    Ursula K. Le Guin

21.             There were a lot of people shouting out. I know it’s not proper tennis etiquette, but this is the first time I’ve ever played here that the crowd has been behind me like that. Today I felt American, you know, for the first time at the U.S. Open. So I’ve waited my whole career to have this moment and here it is. … It was great. It was awesome. It was like winning gold.

–    Venus Williams

22.             But the gospel doesn’t need a coalition devoted to keeping the wrong people out. It needs a family of sinners, saved by grace, committed to tearing down the walls, throwing open the doors, and shouting, “Welcome! There’s bread and wine. Come eat with us and talk.” This isn’t a kingdom for the worthy; it’s a kingdom for the hungry.

–    Rachel Held Evans

23.             The drum-fire of propaganda that the Fed is manning the ramparts against the menace of inflation brought about by others is nothing less than a deceptive shell game. The culprit solely responsible for inflation, the Federal Reserve, is continually engaged in raising a hue-and-cry about ‘inflation,’ for which virtually everyone else in society seems to be responsible. What we are seeing is the old ploy by the robber who starts shouting ‘Stop, thief!’ and runs down the street pointing ahead at others.

–    Murray Rothbard

24.             If only all the contradictory voices shouting in my head would calm down and sing a song in unison, whatever it was I wouldn’t care as long as they sang without dissonance.

–    Ralph Ellison

25.             Another thing I think should be avoided is extremely intense ideology because it cabbages up one’s mind. You see it a lot with T.V. preachers (many have minds made of cabbage) but it can also happen with political ideology. When you’re young it’s easy to drift into loyalties and when you announce that you’re a loyal member and you start shouting the orthodox ideology out, what you’re doing is pounding it in, pounding it in, and you’re gradually ruining your mind. So you want to be very, very careful of this ideology. It’s a big danger.

–    Charlie Munger

26.             Some leaders expect the team to read their minds on priorities, so they never provide the written and verbal guidance that we all need to feel we are contributing. Others can be heard shouting new priorities on an hourly basis. Both habits are very demotivating.

–    Martin Zwilling

27.             The voice of the Spirit is described in the scriptures as being neither loud nor harsh, not a voice of thunder, neither a voice of great tumultuous noise, but rather as still and small, of perfect mildness, as if it had been a whisper, and it can pierce even the very soul and cause the heart to burn. The Spirit does not get our attention by shouting.

–    Boyd K. Packer

28.             All the wisdom of the world consists of shouting with the majority.

–    Thomas Reed

29.             I’m into capturing the moment. Sometimes, I’ll rip the camera out of my assistant’s hands and he’ll be shouting, But there’s no film in the camera! and I think, Never mind! Let’s go.

–    Ellen von Unwerth

30.             In an effort to look cool, I am going to stop shouting Hey, you! at airplanes.

–    Dana Gould

31.             I remember running around the park as a kid and pretending, shouting out ‘Michael Owen in the cup final. He scores!’ To actually fulfil that dream when you’re older and score two goals made it just a magical day.

–    Michael Owen

32.             If you travel in countries like Morocco, and I say that because I have just come from Morocco, if people are shouting at each other in an argument, violence is not going to follow. That would be just so far removed.

–    John Gimlette

33.             We saw groups of people gathering in front of Lula’s house in Sao Paulo this morning. You had people shouting at one another, and some fistfights even broke out. Some of his supporters are claiming that this is equivalent of a coup attempt, an attempt to remove Rousseff from power and prevent Lula from running again. And other people are saying that this is simply a display of rule of law in Brazil, that no one in Brazil can be above the law at this time.

–    Simon Romero

34.             My mom is a big sports fans. Basketball, football, baseball, whatever. She calls into sports radio shows and gets into shouting matches, that’s how intense she is about it.

–    Chris Hardwick

35.             They benefit from all these people, “I just don’t like the fighting. Could you stop the shouting? All I want to do is just get along.” They’re easily able to bulldoze large groups of people into laying down and letting it happen in the hope that this will be peace, in the hope that there will be no confrontations, in the hope that the shouting will stop.

–    Rush Limbaugh

36.             The generation of women who came before us did much of our shouting. They laid the groundwork and now we can be calm and constant and steady.

–    Julianna Baggott

37.             There’s a long history in the Middle East of “bread intifadas,” starting with 1977 in Egypt, when Anwar Sadat tried to lift bread subsidies. People rebelled and poured into Tahrir Square, shouting slogans against the government just like they did earlier this year. Sadat learned his lesson and kept bread subsidies in place, and so did a host of other Middle Eastern dictators – many of whom were propped up for years by the West, partly through subsidized American wheat.

–    Annia Ciezadlo

38.             You know what’s funny about the people who say mean things? There’s a certain part of Twitter that is literally shouting into the void, and then sometimes when the void shouts back it’s like, “Whoa! I wasn’t expecting that. I got called out.” And then if you have a conversation, you find out they like something or they like that or they have questions about that.

–    Alfred Gough

39.             We are not going to eliminate imperialism by shouting insults at it.

–    Amilcar Cabral

40.             I feel like your city – with hip hop in particular, because we’re always beating our chest and shouting where we’re from – your city is just as influential as your parents. Even the grimy, hardcore gangster rap from New York – KRS-One and Wu Tang, the stuff acknowledges it.

–    Talib Kweli

45 when someone shouts at you quotes

1. Then I lost him for a brief period of time, and by the time I caught up with him, he had wandered into Hyde Park, waded into the Serpetine, spread his arms wide, and was shouting, ‘Ducks, embrace me as your king!

–    Cassandra Clare

2. Shouting something didn’t make it any more possible.

–    Angie Sage

3. Any politician who starts shouting election-year demagoguery about the rich and the poor should be asked, “What about the other 90 percent of the people?”

–    Thomas Sowell

4. I hate rap music, which to me sounds like a bunch of angry men shouting, possibly because the person who was supposed to provide them with a melody never showed up.

–    Dave Barry

5. I can’t turn around without hearing about some ‘civil rights advance’s White people seem to think the black man ought to be shouting ‘hallelujah’s Four hundred years the white man has had his foot-long machete in the black man’s back — and now the white man starts to wiggle the machete out, maybe six inches! The black man’s supposed to be grateful? Why, if the white man jerked the machete out, it’s still going to leave a scar!

–    Malcolm X

6. Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, – and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of – wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there, I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung My eager craft through footless halls of air.

– John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

7. In the old world, you devoted 30% of your time to building a great service and 70% of your time to shouting about it. In the new world, that inverts

– Jeff Bezos

8. Boxing is the toughest and loneliest sport in the world. You’ve got all the fans, lots of hangers-on jumping up and shouting different words. But when you actually go in the ring, it’s a very lonely and scary place. It’s just you and the other guy.

– Frank Bruno

9. You are never dedicated to do something you have complete confidence in. No one is fanatically shouting that the sun is going to rise tomorrow. They know it’s going to rise tomorrow. When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kind of dogmas or goals, it’s always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt.

– Robert M. Pirsig

10. Life – give me life until the end,

That at the very top of being,

The battle-spirit shouting in my blood,

Out of the reddest hell of the fight

I may be snatched and flung

Into the everlasting lull,

The immortal, incommunicable dream.

– William Ernest Henley

11. Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues. The story of civilization is what happened on the banks.

– Will Durant

12. The longer you wait to decide what you want to do, the more time you’re wasting. It’s up to you to want something so badly that your passion shows through in your actions. Your actions, not your words, will do the shouting for you.

– Derek Jeter

13. There’s always the cliche of the choir shouting and clapping. OK, you have to do that, but there’s also introspective parts, parts where you just follow someone that’s preaching. There’s lots of different emotions and moods that a service requires.

– Wynton Marsalis

14. I know me, and I know that I’m not somebody that particularly merits a lot of screaming and shouting. And there’s nothing special about me as opposed to hundreds of thousands of other people everywhere.

– Daniel Radcliffe

15. The talk of pale, burning-eyed students, anarchists and utopians all, over tea and cigarettes in a locked room long past midnight, is next morning translated, with the literalness of utter innocence, into the throwing of the incendiary device, the shouting of the proud slogan, the dragging away of the young dreamer-doer, still smiling, to the dungeon and the firing squad.

– Christopher Isherwood

16. They were offered the choice between becoming kings or the couriers of kings. The way children would, they all wanted to be couriers. Therefore there are only couriers who hurry about the world, shouting to each other – since there are no kings – messages that have become meaningless. They would like to put an end to this miserable life of theirs but they dare not because of their oaths of service.

– Franz Kafka

17. America, to me, should be shouting all the time, a bunch of shouting voices, most of them wrong, some of them nuts, but please, not just one droning glamourous reasonable voice.

– George Saunders

18. People were standing up everywhere shouting, “This is me! This is me!” Every time you looked at them they stood up and told you who they were, and the truth of it was that they had no more idea who or what they were than he had. They believed their flashing signs, too. They ought to be standing up and shouting, “This isn’t me! This isn’t me!” They would if they had any decency. “This isn’t me!”

– Philip Roth

19. It’s funny how certain objects convey a message – my washer and dryer, for example. They can’t speak, of course, but whenever I pass them they remind me that I’m doing fairly well. “No more laundromat for you,” they hum. My stove, a downer, tells me every day that I can’t cook, and before I can defend myself my scale jumps in, shouting from the bathroom, “Well, he must be doing _something – _my numbers is off the charts.” The skeleton has a much more limited vocabulary, and says only one thing: “You are going to die.”

– David Sedaris

20. Harry was speeding toward the ground when the crowd saw him clap his hand to his mouth as though he was going to be sick-he hit the field on all fours-coughed-and something gold fell into his hand. ‘I’ve got the snitch!’ he shouted, waving it above his head, and the game ended in complete confusion. ‘He didn’t catch it, he nearly swalloed it,’ Flint was still howling twenty minutes later, but it made no difference-Harry hadn’t broken any rules and Lee Jordan was still happily shouting the results-Gryffindor had won by 170 points to 60.

– J. K. Rowling

21. Genius disregards the boundaries of propriety. Genius is permitted to shout if shouting is productive.

– Lois Lowry

22. We believe in shouting for those who can only whisper, in defending those who cannot defend themselves.

– Veronica Roth

23. What are the best things and the worst things in your life, and when are you going to get around to whispering or shouting them?

– Ray Bradbury

24. For a while he’d tried molding himself into the tragic Romantic hero, brooding and staring clench-jawed off into space as he composed dark verse in his head. But it turned out that trying to appear tragic in Incontinence, Indiana, was redundant, and his mother kept shouting at him and making him forget his rhymes. “Tommy, if you keep grinding your teeth like that, they’ll wear away and you’ll have to have dentures like Aunt Ester.” Tommy only wished his beard was as heavy as Aunt Ester’s—then he could stare out over the moors while he stroked it pensively.

– Christopher Moore

25. The next thing I knew I was listening to five people shouting. What was that all about, anyway?” (Luke) “Nothing,” chorused Clary, Simon, Alec, Magnus, and Jace in surprising and probably never-to-be-repeated unison. -pg.243-

– Cassandra Clare

26. I was awakened by a tremendous earthquake, and though I hadn ever before enjoyed a storm of this sort, the strange thrilling motion could not be mistaken, and I ran out of my cabin, both glad and frightened, shouting, “A noble earthquake! A noble earthquake” feeling sure I was going to learn something.

– John Muir

27. I think I have just always had an awareness that when you go to a premiere and people start cheering and shouting your name and stuff, they are shouting at a perception of you that they have.

– Daniel Radcliffe

29. When I was little I went to a Baptist Church with my grandmother. My earliest memories were of her falling out in the middle of the floor and they had to cover her with a white sheet. Every time we went to church it was scary. The music would start playing, and then everybody would start running and shouting and hollering and screaming.

– Sherri Shepherd

30. Kyo Sohma: One of these days I’ll make you say you’re sorry Yuki Sohma: looking bored I’m sorry. Kyo Sohma: Dammit That’s not what I meant Don’t you have any shame Yuki Sohma: still looking annoyed Yes I’m ashamed to be seen with you shouting in public. Kyo Sohma: Oh that’s it We’re taking this outside Yuki Sohma: still looking annoyed We ARE outside you stupid cat.

– Natsuki Takaya

31. Think of it this way: performing is like sprinting while screaming for three, four minutes. And then you do it again. And then you do it again. And then you walk a little, shouting the whole time. And so on. Your adrenaline quickly overwhelms your conditioning.

– Bruce Springsteen

32.             Getting recognized is sort of weird anyway. I’m 17 now. You get the odd person sort of shouting out “Ron!” or something. And my hair at the moment sort of stands out a bit, can’t really avoid it.

–    Rupert Grint

33.             I feel that a lot of British comedy is often too bombastic, too obvious, dressing up and shouting and pulling funny faces.

–    Ricky Gervais

34.             The world that used to nurse us now keeps shouting inane instructions. That’s why I ran to the woods.

–    Jim Harrison

35.              I must have been sound asleep if i missed all that shouting-Simon What shouting?-Derek you mean that Chole just told you she followed a ghost onto a roof, and you didnt blast her all the way to Canada?-Simon He’s a little off this morning-Chole More than a little i’ll say.-Simon

–    Kelley Armstrong

36.             Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old-time rail journey—delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.

–    Jenkin Lloyd Jones

37.              Your God person puts an apple tree in the middle of a garden and says, do what you like, guys, oh, but don’t eat the apple. Surprise surprise, they eat it and he leaps out from behind a bush shouting “Gotcha”. It wouldn’t have made any difference if they hadn’t eaten it.’ ‘Why not?’ ‘Because if you’re dealing with somebody who has the sort of mentality which likes leaving hats on the pavement with bricks under them you know perfectly well they won’t give up. They’ll get you in the end.

–    Douglas Adams

38.              Until I lose my soul and lie Blind to the beauty of the earth, Deaf though shouting wind goes by, Dumb in a storm of mirth; Until my heart is quenched at length And I have left the land of men, Oh, let me love with all my strength Careless if I am loved again.

–    Sara Teasdale

39.              Do you know, the only people I can have a conversation with are the Jews? At least when they quote scripture at you they are not merely repeating something some priest has babbled in their ear. They have the great merit of disagreeing with nearly everything I say. In fact, they disagree with almost everything they say themselves. And most importantly, they don’t think that shouting strengthens their argument.

–    Iain Pears

40.              Then something occurred to me. “Get closer,” I told Blackjack. He whinnied in protest. “Just within shouting distance,” I said. “I need to talk to the statue.” Now I’m sure you’ve lost it, boss, Blackjack said

–    Rick Riordan

41.              Sorry Johnny.” “Sorry for what ” “For shouting at you. It’s just that when I think about the future I keep panicking. It’s like falling from the top of the stairs in the dark not knowing where I’ll end up.” He put his arm around my shoulders. “I understand. Life is precarious for most of us but more so for you. What you forget is what most of your friends see in you.” “What’s that ” “The ability to beat the odds…” “And fall on my feet ” He nodded. “I just hope that lasts.” “It will Catkin it will. It wouldn’t dare fail you.

–    Julia Golding

42.              Kyo Sohma: One of these days I’ll make you say you’re sorry Yuki Sohma: looking bored I’m sorry. Kyo Sohma: Dammit That’s not what I meant Don’t you have any shame Yuki Sohma: still looking annoyed Yes I’m ashamed to be seen with you shouting in public.

43.              I was awakened by a tremendous earthquake, and though I hadn ever before enjoyed a storm of this sort, the strange thrilling motion could not be mistaken, and I ran out of my cabin, both glad and frightened, shouting, “A noble earthquake! A noble earthquake” feeling sure I was going to learn something.

–    John Muir

44.              He was certain he was anorectic, because every time he looked in a mirror he saw a fat man. It was the Archchancellor, standing behind him and shouting at him.

–    Terry Pratchett

45.              Once I saw Paris Hilton leaving a restaurant in Hollywood and the paparazzi cameras were all over her. It looked so unpleasant. It wasn’t because she didn’t look sensational – she was that perfect combination of fashionable and slutty – it was because the paparazzi guys were shouting these insanely rude and intrusive questions at her. Like, asking her who she was sleeping with and stuff. I was kind of interested in the answer, so I was glad they asked, but it was still gross.

–    Mindy Kaling



50 when someone shouts at you quotes

1.   The road to hell is paved with reasonable religion with a non-anxious god. Most days, I’m pretty happy driving down that road. But I keep running into this Crazy Fellow along the way. At every stop light, he jumps up and down to get my attention. He pounds on my window asking me where the heck I think I’m going. He stands on the front bumper, shouting at me to turn around. When all else fails, he throws himself in front of the car. He’s such a drama queen.

–    Mark Galli

2. I like a tranquil, even-keeled, self-controlled God. A God who doesn’t fly off the handle at the least provocation. A God who lives one step above the fray. A God who has that British stiff upper lip even when disaster is looming. When I read my Bible, though, I keep running into a different God, and I’m not pleased. This God says he “hates” sin. Well, he usually yells it. Read the prophets. It’s just one harangue after another, all in loud decibels. And when the shouting is over, then comes the pouting. … When all else fails, he throws himself in front of the car.

– Mark Galli

3.   Each of these “houses of hope” had their own unique “ingredients” based on their inheritance, but I also saw some common ingredients that were shared by all: … In conclusion, the Lord is saying, “Because of what has been loosed on the earth, angels are ascending and descending, as well as demons. My people must run into the house of hope! The river will take you there! This is not a fearful thing. Respond!” I am hearing the Lord giving this call to the nations. Don’t be like Reuben in Judges 5, who couldn’t decide, Do I go, do I stay? The Lord is shouting, “Run into that house of hope!”

–    Bob Hartley

4.   People aren’t really paying attention when they’re listening to your record, so unless you’re shouting exactly what you want them to hear, they don’t pay attention.

–    Geoff Rickly

5.   I honor and revere the name of Joseph Smith. I delight to hear it; I love it. I love his doctrine. I feel like shouting Hallelujah, all the time, when I think that I ever knew Joseph Smith, the Prophet whom the Lord raised up. I am bold to say that, Jesus Christ excepted, no better man ever lived or does live upon this earth. I am his witness.

–    Brigham Young

6.   Sometimes, you release an album and the record company just about ignores it, and so many people don’t even know it’s out. And I’m not about to jump up and down shouting, “Hey folks, look at me! I’m cool and groovy!” That’s not what George Harrison is all about.

–    George Harrison

7.   Wine and the sun will make vinegar without any shouting to help them.

–    George Eliot

8.   No man – prince, peasant, pope – has all the light, who says else is a mountebank. I claim no private lien on truth, only a liberty to seek it, prove it in debate, and to be wrong a thousand times to reach a single rightness. It is that liberty they fear. They want us to be driven to God like sheep, not running to him like lovers, shouting joy!

–    Morris West

9.   There was a story that I was in a shoe shop and that I threw a pair of flip flops at the wall, shouting, ‘I can’t believe how overpriced these are!’ I thought, ‘Gosh, if I’m gonna take a big stand on something I would hope it would be for more than flip flops!’

–    Rose McGowan

10.             It’s weird: I was in a conference room, shouting out story ideas in the voices of different characters, and it was something I had to learn because I’d never been in that atmosphere. But I think I had a quick learning curve, because this is the job I was supposed to have.

–    Mindy Kaling

11.             No one is fanatically shouting that the sun is going to rise tomorrow. They know it’s going to rise tomorrow.

–    Robert M. Pirsig

12.             Thomas Gordon, founder of P.E.T. (Parent Effectiveness Training), observed that when children are behaving in a way that interferes with your ability to meet your needs, shouting direct orders to them doesn’t work very well. So, he advised sending I messages. That is, a better alternative to, Your room is a disaster area-clean it up this minute, would be something like, I get embarrassed when Mrs. Johnson is visiting and sees your room looking this messy, so I need you to clean it up.

–    Ben Yagoda

13.             The human soul doesn’t want to be fixed, it simply wants to be seen and heard. The soul is like a wild animal – tough, resilient and shy. When we go crashing through the woods shouting for it to come out so we can help it, the soul will stay in hiding. But if we are willing to sit quietly and wait for a while, the soul may show itself.

–    Parker J. Palmer

14.             The old adage that polite conversation should not include talk of politics or religion is understandable because both subjects are so heavily laden with emotion that discussion can quickly turn to shouting. Blood is shed over politics, religion and the two in combination.

–    John C. Danforth

15.             I think readers appreciate those of us who stay in the trenches and fight the good fight even when times get tough. I know that I, personally, lost respect for writers who, when there was a downturn in the market, started shouting from the rooftops that they wrote thrillers and suspense novels rather than horror. As far as I’m concerned, those wussboys should sever all ties with the horror community if that’s the way they feel and get out of the way so real horror writers can do their work.

–    Bentley Little

16.             The shouting, the overrunning of the Capitol, the sneaking in of Tea Party participants into the basement of the Capitol, the name-calling, the spitting, all of that… The Tea Party emerges as not only outrageous, but they have turned up the volume in ways that even Code Pink have not been able to do.

–    Maxine Waters

17.             Some drivers have already got out of their cars, prepared to push the stranded vehicle to a spot where it will not hold up the traffic, they beat furiously on the closed windows, the man inside turns his head in their direction, first to one side then to the other, he is clearly shouting something, to judge by the movements of his mouth he appears to be repeating some words, no one word but three, as turns out to be the case when someone finally manages to open the door, I am blind.

–    Jose Saramago

18.             Now that I’m out and I’m shouting in doorways Freed from a love more like murder I should be singing but in liberation Feel like a ship with no rudder.

–    Andy Partridge

19.             It has been obvious all along, to anyone paying attention, that the politicians shouting loudest about deficits are actually using deficit hysteria as a cover story for their real agenda, which is top-down class warfare. To put it in Romneyesque terms, it’s all about finding an excuse to slash programs that help people who like to watch Nascar events, even while lavishing tax cuts on people who like to own Nascar teams.

–    Paul Krugman

20.             On my cornice linger the ripe black grapes ungathered;

Children fill the groves with the echoes of their glee,

Gathering tawny chestnuts, and shouting when beside them

Drops the heavy fruit of the tall black-walnut tree.

21.             My brave fellows, let no sensation of satisfaction for the triumphs you have gained induce you to insult your fallen enemy. Let no shouting, no clamorous huzzaing increase their mortification. It is sufficient for us that we witness their humiliation. Posterity will huzza for us.

We should be able to say, “This is my truth,” and have that truth stand without a hundred clamoring voices shouting, giving the impression that multiple truths cannot coexist.

–    Roxane Gay

26.             Robin Hood is often seen as the hands-on-hips, archetypal, tally-ho hero. But, realistically, the one calling the shots wouldn’t be at the front shouting about it. He’d be the one you don’t expect.

29.             About Archimedes one remembers that he did strange things: he ran around naked shouting ‘Heureka!’, plunged crowns into water, drew geometric figures as he was about to be killed, and so on. One ends up forgetting he was a scientist of whom we still have many writings.

–    Lucio Russo

31.             the very minute we think we ‘have’ God, God will surprise us. As we search in fire and earthquakes, God will be in the still small voice. As we listen in silent meditation, God will be shouting protests in the street. God is warning us that we had best not try to find our security in any well-defined concept or category of what is Godly – for the minute we believe we are into God, God is off again and calling us forth into some unknown place.

–    Carter Heyward

32.             Social reform is not to be secured by noise and shouting; by complaints and denunciation; by the formation of parties, or the making of revolutions; but by the awakening of thought and the progress of ideas. Until there be correct thought, there cannot be right action; and when there is correct thought, right action will follow.

–    Henry George

34.             Shouting has never made me understand anything.

37. YOU CHEATING !” Lee Jordan was howling into the megaphone, dancing out of Professor McGonagall’s reach. “YOU FILTHY, CHEATING B —” Professor McGonagall didn’t even bother to tell him off. She was actually shaking her finger in Malfoy’s direction, her hat had fallen off, and she too was shouting furiously.

– J. K. Rowling

39. Madge: I don’t know why I keep shouting at them. The Doctor: Because every time you see them happy you remember how sad they’re going to be. And it breaks your heart. Because what’s the point in them being happy now if they’re going to be sad later. The answer is, of course, because they are going to be sad later. ~ The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe

– Steven Moffat

40. What America is, to me, is a guy doesn’t want to buy, you let him not buy, you respect his not buying. A guy has a crazy notion different from your crazy notion, you pat him on the back and say, Hey pal, nice crazy notion, let’s go have an intoxicating drink. America, to me, should be shouting all the time, a bunch of shouting voices, most of them wrong, some of them nuts, but please, not just one droning glamorous reasonable voice.

– George Saunders

47. Before I met No I thought that violence meant shouting and hitting and war and blood. Now I know that there can also be violence in silence and that it’s sometimes invisible to the naked eye. There’s violence in the time that conceals wounds, the relentless succession of days, the impossibility of turning back the clock. Violence is what escapes us. It’s silent and hidden. Violence is what remains inexplicable, what stays forever opaque.

– Delphine de Vigan

48. Perhaps when music has been shouting for so long, a quieter voice seems attractive.

50. The advent of Google+ and the emergence of the personalized web means this is more true than ever. Brands, and their advertising partners, must wake up to this challenge and define themselves with clarity, consistency and authenticity. Otherwise they just might find themselves shouting in a ghost town.

– Simon Mainwaring
