Quotes about Bullying

Bullying happens because weak people need to prop up their ego by beating up or humiliating others.
Bruce Dickinson (What Does This Button Do?: An Autobiography)
Charlie: "You didn't have to do that. I'm used to people saying stuff about me."
Nick: "No. But you shouldn't have to be. People shouldn't be saying stuff about you in the first place. You shouldn't have to put up with anything like that."

Goldie Wilson: "Stand tall, boy! Have some respect for yourself. Don't you know if you let people walk over you now, they'll walk over you for the rest of your life."
I don't believe in revenge. When people are bullies, it's because of a deeper-rooted issue. Either their family life is tough or they're being bullied by someone bigger than they are.
I find it's usually the bullies who are the most insecure.
I allowed myself to be bullied because I was scared and didn't know how to defend myself. I was bullied until I prevented a new student from being bullied. By standing up for him, I learned to stand up for myself.
I think school is so much harder than real life. People are so much more accepting when they are adults.

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself!
Bullying is a vital part of every ecosystem. It teaches kids resilience. The world is a rough place. Bullying is like getting inoculated. It's a vaccine.
Frank Gallagher in Shameless - Season 4
All of my favorite people - people I really trust - none of them were "cool" in their younger years.

Bystanders who do nothing give bullies permission inadvertently to go on being bullies. Most are afraid they’ll lose friends or be bullied themselves if they help victims or report bullies, and some feel guilty for years afterward.

My self-wroth is not linked to your cruel words and actions.
My self-esteem is not affected by your deliberate attempts to destroy my character.
You have no power over me.
You will not silence me.

It was because of the way you treated me that I learned to be my own person, have my own opinion, stand my ground. It’s at least partially because I survived you that I’m the person I am today.

In order to find some solution to the bullying problem, we’ll have to be more tolerant of ambiguity, subtlety, and strangeness not just in other people but in ourselves. It may be important to your identity that you are a soccer player, but it may be equally important that you can whistle the national anthem backward and make the world’s best spicy popcorn and do a wicked impression of Victoria Beckham. Schools, parents, and educational endeavors should encourage people not just to empathize but to discover and celebrate the weirdness in others and in ourselves. We need not just to think but to live outside the box. Weirdness is good. It keeps things interesting.

Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.

We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.

We focus so much on our differences, and that is creating, I think, a lot of chaos and negativity and bullying in the world. And I think if everybody focused on what we all have in common - which is - we all want to be happy.
There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.
If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.
When I was in high school, I got bullied through social media - on the Internet, on my Facebook. That was hard for me, and I think social media has made it easy for people to bully other people on-line because they can just post anything they want anonymously.
The first thing I learned at school was that some people are idiots; the second thing I learned was that some are even worse.
Orhan Pamuk (Istanbul: Memories and the City)

Here's what I can say: When you're young, when you're in elementary school or when you're in highschool, it's important to try and fit in and be accepted and to be part of the average. Everyone does it, that's the way it goes. But let me assure you, if you're getting bullied and you're feeling like you are on the outskirts, that it gets better. Because when you're getting older you find, that people are actually drawn towards individuals with different points of view, who are proud of who they are and who make interesting and different and unique choices for them.

Don't ever let someone tell you, you can't do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period. All right?
