Challenges Quotes

Life is one long training session in preparation for what will come. Life and death lose their meaning; there are only challenges to be met with joy and overcome with tranquility.

Paulo Coelho

You discover that your old I, along with everything you ever learned, is absolutely no use at all in the face of those new challenges, and you begin to realize that buried deep in your unconscious mind there is someone much more interesting and adventurous and more open to the world and to new experiences.

Paulo Coelho

Succeeding in Iraq also requires defending its territorial integrity and stabilizing the region in the face of extremist challenges. This begins with addressing Iran and Syria. These two regimes are allowing terrorists and insurgents to use their territory to move in and out of Iraq. Iran is providing material support for attacks on American troops. We will disrupt the attacks on our forces. We'll interrupt the flow of support from Iran and Syria. And we will seek out and destroy the networks providing advanced weaponry and training to our enemies in Iraq.

George Walker Bush

These are times in which a genius would wish to live. It is not in the still calm of life, or in the repose of a pacific station, that great challenges are formed. . . . Great necessities call out great virtues

Unknown

Everyone needs something to aim for. You can call it a challenge, or you can call it a goal. It is what makes us human. It was challenges that took us from being cavemen to reaching for the stars

Richard Branson

Bill Clinton

Yoga heals, nourishes, and challenges us. The practice infiltrates every corner of our lives.

Valerie Jeremijenko

NO CHALLENGE, NO CHANGE ! Forget the no pain no gain thing. If it's pain, then STOP! I made up the phrase 'no challenge no change' over 15 years ago when I realized it was not the pain that made one change, but the challenge that was overcome. It started out with references to working out and then I realized I could apply that idea to every part of my life, including motherhood, relationships, school, work, etc. I will continue to live by this phrase and hope to instill it in my daughter as well. It has gotten me through so many hard times, including divorce, losing my mom 3 years ago, and while being in school for the last 7 years... getting closer to that PhD every semester. There have been an insane amount of challenges I have dealt with in my life, so my goal is that the changes that result will in turn have an insane impact, not only on myself, but my daughter, and everyone I come into contact with

Robin Akawi

We all faced painful ethical challenges before we even knew how to spell our names. There were tough choices. Tradeoffs. Confusing signals regarding how to live one's life. And here we are now, today, still struggling. Still trying to sort things out. Still trying to work our way through life effectively. About the only thing that has changed is the scope of the problem. There's more at stake now. And we're in a position, as grownups, to do a lot more-good or bad-for ourselves, our organization, our world. But we still must wrestle with our imperfect ethics.

Price Pritchett

The world is actually in many key ways improving at the moment. There are still enormous challenges.

Tim Flannery

The true test of the American ideal is whether we’re able to recognize our failings and then rise together to meet the challenges of our time. Whether we allow ourselves to be shaped by events and history, or whether we act to shape them. Whether chance of birth or circumstance decides life’s big winners and losers, or whether we build a community where, at the very least, everyone has a chance to work hard, get ahead, and reach their dreams.

Barack Obama

American families have always shown remarkable resiliency, or flexible adjustment to natural, economic, and social challenges. Their strengths resemble the elasticity of a spider web, a gull's skillful flow with the wind, the regenerating power of perennial grasses, the cooperation of an ant colony, and the persistence of a stream carving canyon rocks. These are not the strengths of fixed monuments but living organisms. This resilience is not measured by wealth, muscle or efficiency but by creativity, unity, and hope. Cultivating these family strengths is critical to a thriving human community.

Ben Silliman

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 road ahead bears many challenges and now more than ever do the people of our community need a limited government that allows the people to do what they do best to build their own wealth.

Robert Agresta

Despite the immense challenges that we have faced and continue to face, we refuse to indulge in negativity or pessimism. We are an organization that believes in empowering people to be their best.

Talal Abu-Ghazaleh

Moving to the forefront of advanced nations is not a choice but a national duty. This requires, among other things, erecting the best industrial property protection systems despite all challenges, particularly in the transition phase that we must endure.

Talal Abu-Ghazaleh

You cannot be big unless you are prepared to kiss the ground. You cannot defend the soil unless you know the smell of that soil. I know the smell of our soil. I know the rhythm of our rivers. I know the beat of our drums. The theories, the dogmas and the scripts stand outside the gates of history. The dominant factor is the aspiration of the people and the ability to seek total identification with it. Once the significance of the symphony is grasped, the lines fall into place, the dogmas and theories get legs to move in time to the majesty of that music. This does not mean that I am preaching pragmatism. There is a lot of expediency in pragmatism. I am trying to trace the roots of the problems, the genesis of the challenges, the cause of the struggle.
