Transcript of Lemony Snicket Quotes

The table of elements
does not contain one
of the most powerful
elements that make
up our world, and that is the element of surprise.
Lemony Snicket Quotations
Perhaps if we saw what was
ahead of us, and glimpsed the
crimes, follies, and misfortunes
that would befall us later on,
we would all stay in our
mother's wombs, and there
would be nobody in the world
but a great number of very fat,
very irritated women.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
It is a curious thing, the death of a loved
one. We all know that our time in this
world is limited, and that eventually all of
us will end up underneath some sheet,
never to wake up. And yet it is always a
surprise when it happens to someone we
know. It is like walking up the stairs to
your bedroom in the dark, and thinking
there is one more stair than there is. Your
foot falls down, through the air, and there
is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you
try and readjust the way you thought of
One of the most difficult things to
think about in one's life is one's
regrets. Something will happen to

you, and you will do the wrong
thing, and for years afterward
you will wish you had done
something different.
Fate is like a
restaurant filled
with odd little
waiters who
bring you
things you never
asked for and don't
always like.
Miracles are like meatballs, because
nobody can exactly agree what they are made of, where they come from,
or how often the should appear.
It is often difficult to admit that someone you love is not perfect, or to consider aspects of a person that are less than admirable.
I will love you as misfortune loves orphans,
as fire loves innocence,
and as justice loves to sit and watch while everything goes wrong.
One of the remarkable things about love is that, despite very irritating people writing poems and songs about how pleasant it is, it really is quite pleasant.
The world is too quiet without you nearby.
I don't know if you've ever noticed this, but first impressions are often entirely wrong.
People aren't either wicked or noble. They're like chef's salads, with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict.
There are times to stay put,
and what you want will come
to you, and there are times
to go out into the world and
find such a thing for yourself.
If we wait until we're ready,
we'll be waiting for the rest of our lives.
At times the world can seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe us when we say there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events, may, in fact, be the first steps of a journey.
