Challenge Quotes

There is no greater challenge than to have someone relying upon you; no greater satisfaction than to vindicate his expectation.

Kingman Brewster

I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and I will be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.

Og Mandino

Journalism is the ability to meet the challenge of filling space.

Rebecca West

I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and I will be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness for it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.

Og Mandino

We know this apodictic rock beneath our feet. That dogmatic sun above our heads. The world of dreams, the agony of love and the foresight of death. That is all we know. And all we need to know? Challenge that statement.

Edward Abbey

The mortal enemies of man are not his fellows of another continent or race; they are the aspects of the physical world which limit or challenge his control, the disease germs that attack him and his domesticated plants and animals, and the insects that carry many of these germs as well as working notable direct injury. This is not the age of man, however great his superiority in size and intelligence; it is literally the age of insects.

Warder Clyde Allee

Within the state we have made defense of the individual the obligation of the whole community, and by that fact have established such preponderance of power on the side of the law that it could never be good business to challenge it. And that fact has, in large measure, swept highwaymen from the roads and pirates from the seas.

Sir Norman Angell

If you learn to know your enemy before you hate him, you may learn not to have an enemy. Too often a Montmer will take one today over three yesterdays and two tomorrows. To see the world with the eyes of others is to stand atop a new mountain. Knowing the length of a Montmers ear wont tell you if he can listen. Better to live with ten Montmers in uneasy peace than one in a war. When you take one backward hop it requires two hops to go forward. You are never more alone when you are followed by many. Fear not the weak, only they try to hide their weaknesses. Nothing in the world is so small that the sun cannot warm it. Truth is often painful to speak but soothing to live. Of all things the hardest to keep is a promise. Lies fly then fall. Truth hops but keeps going. Of all challenges the greatest is to be yourself. They who pine for the past, fear the future. A life without a challenge is a life not lived. Life is given. The rest one gives oneself. Ignorance is the cruelest weather. Only the dead have no choices. The future begins in the past.

Edward Irving Wortis

The rapid deterioration of education has been recognized as a national problem for the past several years. Consequently, American businesses must meet the immediate challenge of oorly-educated people in today's workforce by strengthening employee training programs.

Gregory Balestrero

Consequently, American businesses must meet the challenge of poorly- educated people in today's workforce by strengthening employee training programs.

Gregory Balestrero

Life, to me, is a series of false limits and my challenge as an athlete is to explore those limits on a bike.

Lance Edward Armstrong

It's not hard to understand why an accomplished director like Gus Van Sant (whose most recent success, Good Will Hunting, gave him mainstream clout) would be interested in making this film. The lure of an exact remake presents a tremendous challenge. Unfortunately, it was undoubtedly a lot more stimulating for Van Sant and his crew to make Psycho than it is for an audience to watch it. [C]uriosity is going to be one of the primary reasons why people pay money to see this movie; boredom will be the predominant result.

James Berardinelli

Professors of the humanities have long been desperate to make their subjects accord with modernity instead of a challenge to it. The effort to read books as their writers intended them to be read has been made into a crime, ever since the intentional fallacy was instituted. There are endless debates about methodsamong Freudian criticism, Marxist criticism, New Criticism, Structuralism and Deconstructionism, and many others, all of which have in common the premise that what Plato or Dante had to say about reality is unimportant. These schools of criticism make the writers plants in a garden planned by a modem scholar, while their own garden-planning vocation is denied them.

Allan David Bloom

The constant questioning of our values and achievements is a challenge without which neither science nor society can remain healthy.

Aage Niels Bohr

I suppose I want to leave a word with you tonight, that seems to have been applicable and important to everyone lately. And that is remember Mercy, Love and Forgiveness, because this seems to be lacking, and causing and creating a lot of problems for people because it is so lacking. So remember that, first and foremost. And if you're already doing a good job at that, you think good for you! Step it up a bit! That's your challenge. As for me, I must work on these things always too!

MaryAnne Ysabella

My experiences with science led me to God. They challenge science to prove the existence of God. But must we really light a candle to see the sun?

Wernher von Braun
