Both my wife and I went to Harvard, and it's incredibly exciting that our son and daughter are going there and have the chance to experience it. There are many awesome opportunities at Harvard. That's one of its greatest frustrations – not having enough time to take the classes you want to take. -Carlton Cuse

Since the day I was born, wrestling has sustained me and my family. It's the way my father fed me; it's the way I feed my kids. More importantly, wrestling is my greatest release. It's been such a blessing for me. I can step into the ring and let it all go – all my anger, all my frustration, all my pain. -Eddie Guerrero

I suffer from the same frustration that every decent American suffers from. That is, that you begin to wonder whether decent liberal instincts, decent humanitarian instincts, can actually penetrate the right-wing voice, get through the steering of American opinion by the mass media. -John le Carre

If the human body recognized agony and frustration, people would never run marathons, have babies, or play baseball. -Carlton Fisk

The 2001 tour to Australia would have been a great highlight in my career if the Lions had won the series.

I can't control my frustration. -Hasso Plattner

I knew there was a way to blend records together, but I didn't know how to. This was haunting me when I was in my teens. In my frustration, I decided to start experimenting with electronics. I tested the torque factor on different turntables. I had to figure needles out. See, there are two kinds, elliptical and conical. -Grandmaster Flash

Nobody ever texts me, because they know what I'm like. I'm a constant frustration to my children because I never switch my mobile phone on. I only use it when I need to make a call or when I'm stuck somewhere or lost, then I switch it off again. I've never texted anyone in my life, and I'm not sure I even know how to. -Terry Wogan

The frustration of the Senate is that it's slow. It looks like an aquarium. -Jim Webb

I enjoy a third act, and I like stories with ending. A lot of my frustration with serialized storytelling is a lot of shows don't have a third act. They have an endless second act, and then they find out it's their last year and often have to hustle to invent a third act, but they were never necessarily organically meaning to begin with. -Nic Pizzolatto

When I get out across the country and listen to people, the resentment that I see and the frustration that I see is that we have a generation of people who are fairly convinced that their kids are not going to have a better quality of life or a better future than they will. -Justin Trudeau

Needing to have things perfect is the surest way to immobilize yourself with frustration. -Wayne Dyer

We cannot give our students all that they expect, whether by way of the quality of their schooling or by way of the jobs that they were hoping to get. Student frustration is a worldwide phenomenon, pushing our societies into adjusting faster than they are used to. -Arthur Lewis

It's a massive consumer frustration around the world about how long they have to wait after the U.S. to see television shows and movies. In the U.S., there's the frustration of having to wait a year to watch a movie in the format that you choose. -Ted Sarandos

One of my frustrations is that we in society generally have this bifurcation in how we see the world. That's probably a little less true with business audiences, but in general, there tends to be this view that for-profit companies are greedy, and nonprofits are noble. It's absolutely more complicated than that. -Nicholas Kristof

My great frustration is that, more and more, my memories come and go, and friends all my life are not recognized. Many of the things I say and do, I can no longer remember even right afterwards. -Alex Spanos

I think Mr. Trump's people are very, very passionate, and they're angry because of the way that this country has been taken advantage of from so many other countries. That's a frustration level I think a lot of people in this country feel, and people express it in different ways. -Corey Lewandowski

I can't help other people's frustrations. I don't owe people anything. If people would like to come to my concerts, I'd love them to come. And if they like the music that I make, I love that, too. But I do not make music for other people. I make it to please myself. -David Gilmour

My big frustration in New Order was that they played the same tracks all the time. -Peter Hook

All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for… reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. -Casey Stengel

I think there are a lot of misconceptions on both sides, the developing vs. the developed world, especially about America. I've felt the frustration in my lack of belonging to any one place, but I've also felt it liberating to be able to appreciate something without feeling disloyal to my own culture. -Jhumpa Lahiri

I suppose where I am sort of reflects the work I have chosen to do.

But generall… generally, I have the career I have chosen myself. -Damian Lewis

What makes an officer's job all the more difficult, dangerous, and demanding is that it rests on upholding that sacred trust with citizens that he or she serves.

Whenever I've had a rough day, I like to pour my frustration into my workouts. -Jillian Michaels

We want people to have the right to express their concerns and frustration and protest in a peaceful manner. -Larry Hogan

I was talking to Marylanders… What we were hearing, everywhere, was an overwhelming sense of frustration. People felt a huge disconnect between Annapolis and the rest of Maryland. -Larry Hogan

One of the biggest things we have to be able to do is to handle conflict and handle it correctly. We're able to look at our biases, look at our frustration, look at our sin in this area, our pride and our selfishness. It allows us to move forward. -Benjamin Watson

There shouldn't be any looting or anything like that. But we're seeing a lot of frustration, and nobody knows the answer. All of us are saying we need an answer, and what I'm saying is we need, all of us, a heart change so, as America, we can move forward. -Benjamin Watson

My biggest influence is rap. It spoke to me, probably because of my upbringing in Christiania. You listen to 'The Chronic' and you can hear that anger and frustration. -Lukas Forchhammer

The frustrations and joys of parenthood are just hard to understand until you have a kid… the constant fight you're having with yourself, like loving being with your kid but also being kind of bored and wanting to look at your iPhone – it's kind of an interesting thing that's hard to write about before you've experienced it. -Nicholas Stoller

Writing is frustration – it's daily frustration, not to mention humiliation. It's just like baseball: you fail two-thirds of the time. -Philip Roth

We are properly ready for marriage when we are strong enough to embrace a life of frustration. -Alain de Botton

The contrasting focus on connection versus hierarchy also sheds light on innumerable adult conversations – and frustrations.

The resulting 'troubles talk' reinforces the connection between them. -Deborah Tannen

This idea that we should be best friends with our partner of the opposite gender leads toward tremendous frustration. Did you ever notice that while men often refer to their wives as best friends, women usually refer to another woman in that way? -Deborah Tannen

You can only sit on the frustration of wanting to express something for so long. -William Hurt

It's easy to forget, as a leader, that when employees don't get the wide view, not only does the point of their work escape them, but it can also lead to real frustration. It's hard to feel pride and ownership when you don't understand where things are going. -Jason Fried

As a medical doctor, I have known the face of adversity. I have seen much of death and dying, suffering and sorrow.

And I recall the fatigue and frustration felt by young parents with children in need. -Russell M. Nelson

Our government is printing money, and it's degrading the living standard of every person in America. It's the cause of frustration, anger, and confusion. -Steve Wynn

I have been waiting for someone to come along and tap into that very real frustration that exists in a very large segment of the working-class Republican base.

If you think about what folks have been doing for 20 or 30 years, they have been bottling frustration and resentment that the political elites don't understand them, that the political elites don't care about them, that the political elites judge them in various ways. All Donald Trump does is provide the opposite of those things. -J. D. Vance

I came back to Haiti after the earthquake not to shoot a film, but to help and be a part of the rebuilding process, like all my fellow compatriots.

And it's out of that frustration that I decided to shoot a film. -Raoul Peck

I tried to avoid anything that caused me frustration or grief or duress. I played FarmVille and procrastinated like all teenagers. -Hozier

What I like about my character: Luke Cage is a person first and foremost. We do have other black superheroes, but he's important because he's touchable. Luke has moments when he has to try to forget his pain, but then, unlike the rest of us, he's also able to channel that frustration into fighting bad guys. Real martyrs aren't trying to be martyrs. -Mike Colter

I don't think you really have chemistry in the way that you want between two actors unless frustration is there as well. -Omari Hardwick

It was great to bring a championship to the city of Chicago. -Scottie Pippen

Trump has given voice to a widespread public feeling of alarm, frustration, and anger over the direction our country is headed. For all of that, conservatives are deeply grateful. America needed a loud, rude wake-up call. No one else has done that, and that accomplishment is huge. -Tom Tancredo

I always had this feeling, what I wanted to do. I was trying to work out myself, my frustrations, my body. I couldn't really pinpoint. I started taking photos of my sister and her friends. I was 15, exploring what it meant to be a 15-year-old girl. -Petra Collins

Tax Day is often a source of frustration for taxpayers, so anything that can make the process less painful is appreciated. -Kevin Brady

My mother was a courageous woman, and she had such tremendous love for life. She loved the natural world. She would wake us up in the middle of the night to go look at the moon. When I was a teenager, this was a source of great frustration because I wanted to sleep. -Maya Soetoro-Ng

My mood depends on how I treat my toothbrushes. Being a skipper is a strenuous job, and when you are going through a rough phase, obviously you start taking out your frustration. You can't take it out on anyone: you can't take it out on your teammates or your wife. The only person that is left is your toothbrush. -Gautam Gambhir

The frustration of being ordered around by somebody to do something – everyone can relate to that. I think Beetle represents that – the common man caught in that morass of rules and regulations. I don't even think of it as an army strip… it's a world anyone can understand. -Mort Walker

I truly never saw myself doing anything other than music. There was nothing else that brought me this much joy, but also this much frustration. -Bishop Briggs

When I left the U.S., I sort of left that frustration and that pressure to make the national team behind me. -Christen Press

The people sometimes who are closest to us are the ones who bear the brunt of our frustration. -Lynn Nottage

Some people like the same thing forever, but I don't know. We kind of, like, listen to loads of different stuff, and our attention spans aren't good enough.

There is a great deal of sympathy amongst workers for the Occupy Wall Street movement. We understand their frustration. -Sharan Burrow

Making people fear the expression of their own power is a very effective way of disempowering them.

I just spent five, six years sacrificing so much to try and fit into that one ideal, that one small standard, and I was never good enough. And it was just frustration that turned into motivation… That became my ammunition, all the people that told me I couldn't. -Iskra Lawrence

After the abrupt death of my mother, Jane, on Sept. 5, 1991, of a disease called amyloidosis, my dad took up golf at 57.

But in mourning, Dad turned Job-like to golf, a game of frustration and golf widows and solitary hours on the range. -Steve Rushin

I think that crying is a way women and men express frustration, anger, or passion. And we should not feel compelled to mute those emotions. -Jennifer Palmieri

As a screenwriter, you always have frustrations. It's just the nature of the job, and you have to live with it. Your vision is not going to be the same as the director's vision. It doesn't mean one is better or worse; it means they're different. -James Watkins

Building up expectations, creating unrealistic time frames, feeling like our end goal is the end all, be all can all lead to frustration or anxiety.

Part of the frustration of being bipolar is people don't understand what it feels like. -Alice Ripley

My mother taught us all to bake. It literally calmed us down, and she was able to get rid of all her frustrations. -Keala Settle

I'd listened to my colleagues in the teachers' lunchroom. I could tell they were passionate, fired-up people who had great ideas for strategies and projects to help kids learn better. They just didn't have the resources. I was frustrated, but I also knew it was a frustration felt by teachers all over the city. -Charles Best

I've been told so many times that I should go to the gym to get my anxiety and frustration out. But it just makes me feel pure, concentrated dread. -Tuppence Middleton

One of my great frustrations for 35 years at the paper was the fact I couldn't play a record for the reader when I was writing about an artist.

I really think you get the jobs you're supposed to get. And don't stress over the jobs that you don't. That would have saved me so many tears and so much frustration. -Constance Zimmer

When you are young, it's deeply annoying to be told that certain things are a condition of your youth. There's almost always some condescension in the proposition that your reality, your hopes, your frustrations, are just a condition of your age, that what feels unique to you is a very common thing after all. -Rumaan Alam

I had this perception based on my own frustrations with Washington, but I didn't realize until I launched this campaign how much people are looking for a new generation of leadership and a new approach in Washington. -Elise Stefanik

But if the people at the bottom are happy and fulfilled, then they do their jobs a little better, and it goes up that way. -Wyatt Cenac

I'm looking for a living wage and to continue my work. The frustration comes from when I can't do the things that matter most to me. It's when someone comes and says, 'I will finance your movie if you cast so and so.' -Debra Granik

Every day, write down a few frustrations. And then at the end of the week, you'll have maybe 10 problems. By the end of the month, maybe you have 40 to 50 problems.

Would I have voted to leave the European Union? Yes, I would. My theory there is that Britain was fed up having won two World Wars against the Germans and had reached the boiling and breaking point of being told where to live and what to do by a bunch of bureaucrats in Belgium. It was out of that frustration that the vote to leave was made. -Robin Leach

While in two very different sectors, both Skype and TransferWise were born out of frustration. -Taavet Hinrikus

In 2011, when we launched TransferWise, it was our frustration with banks not giving us what we wanted or needed as customers. The motivation was a strong desire to solve a problem and not just fix something that was broken but create a better alternative and a new system for doing things. -Taavet Hinrikus

When the mid-'70s came around, it looked like, 'Oh-oh, here come the punks.'

But to be typecast as a singer of peace and love is fine. -Donovan

Feeling alone makes negative feelings worse. When you feel alone, frustration quickly can become anger, fear quickly can become panic. -Mark Goulston

In college, I'd gone abroad to get away from a campus where I felt I didn't fit in.

Former CIA employee Joseph Weisberg's 'An Ordinary Spy' may attract attention for how much it redacts – whether by authorial choice or by CIA design – but its power comes from the growing frustration Weisberg's fictional alter ego feels at a system designed to betray seeming innocents in the most casual and cruel manner possible. -Sarah Weinman

I'm an emotional person. Anger and frustration comes out in many ways… I'm not afraid to hug my friends that I love, and I'm not afraid to express my emotions when I'm upset. -Big Show

We all observe political leaders and scams. People are affected because of political apathy. We all get frustrated because of what we witness. 'NOTA' was a platform to vent my frustration. -Vijay Deverakonda

'Turn to Stone' was written about the Nixon administration and the Vietnam War and the protesting that was going on and all of that. It's a song about frustration. Also, I attended Kent State. -Joe Walsh

I can see parts of my father in 'Kingdom' when I rage like that. I can see my father's frustrations in his life. -Frank Grillo

In my own view, Hamas's frustration derives from a lack of legitimization by Israel and by much of the world. It is this frustration that leads them to such destructive desperation.

For 50 years – that is, for most of my adult life – I worked tirelessly for the two-state solution in the face of countless frustrations, both on the part of the Israeli governments and the Palestinian Authority. -A. B. Yehoshua

Some of my friends said I wouldn't have a future in football, as did some of my family, but I still believed in the potential I had.
