Worth Quotes

If a country were not worth protecting, it was not worth claiming.

George Rogers Clark

To regard ones immortality as an exchange of matter is as strange as predicting the future of a violin case once the expensive violin it held has broken and lost its worth.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

A gram of experience is worth a ton of theory.

Robert Gascoyne Cecil, 3rd Marquess of Salisbury

Clever men will recognize and tolerate nothing but cleverness; every authority rouses their ridicule, every superstition amuses them, every convention moves them to contradiction. Only force finds favor in their eyes, and they have no toleration for anything that is not purely natural and spontaneous. And yet ten clever men are not worth one man of talent, nor ten men of talent worth one man of genius. And in the individual, feeling is more than cleverness, reason is worth as much as feeling, and conscience has it over reason. If, then, the clever man is not mockable, he may at least be neither loved, nor considered, nor esteemed. He may make himself feared, it is true, and force others to respect his independence; but this negative advantage, which is the result of a negative superiority, brings no happiness with it. Cleverness is serviceable for everything, sufficient for nothing.

Henri-Frdric Amiel

A girl in a convertible is worth five in the phonebook.

Warren Edward Buffett

Even if loving meant leaving, or solitude, or sorrow, love was worth every penny of its price.

Paulo Coelho

It's not worth the bother of killing yourself, since you always kill yourself too late.

Emil Cioran

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.

Carl Gustav Jung

A vigorous temper is not altogether an evil. Men who are easy as an old shoe are generally of little worth.

Charles Spurgeon

Men are like steel. When they lose their temper, they lose their worth.

Chuck Norris

Anything in life worth having is worth working for!

Andrew Carnegie

Eat, drink, and love; the rest's not worth a fillip.

George Gordon (Noel) Byron, 6th Baron Byron

That which needs to be proved cannot be worth much.

Friedrich Nietzsche

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

Beverly Sills

A manís worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions.

Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.

Unknown

You are not worth the dust which the rude wind Blows in your face.

William Shakespeare

Wouldnt it be powerful if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that you would do just about anything if you knew it would make you happy? This is precisely how much life loves you and wants you to nurture yourself. The deeper you love yourself, the more the universe will affirm your worth. Then you can enjoy a lifelong love affair that brings you the richest fulfillment from inside out.

Alan Cohen

The difficulty is not so great to die for a friend, as to find a friend worth dying for.

Homer

War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares about more than his personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill

The only thing as bad as bad comedy is bad action. Bad Boys II has plenty of both. In fact, those two things are all it has, unless you count the small helping of bad drama. When it comes to this movie, the word "bad" initially seems highly appropriate. But Bad Boys II isn't just bad it's a catastrophic violation of every aspect of cinema that I as a film critic hold dear. It seems to have been constructed with terms like "unwatchable" and "godawful" as its slogans. There are motion picture failures every year the resumes of Hollywood players are littered with them. But, when something this big a would-be blockbuster with recognizable names in the cast and crew collapses in such a spectacular fashion, it's worth taking note. Think of how many starving children could have been fed with the money that was poured into [director] Michael Bay's latest sinkhole.

James Berardinelli

A real gentleman, even if he loses everything he owns, must show no emotion. Money must be so far beneath a gentleman that it is hardly worth troubling about.

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work.
