Lost causes are the only causes worth fighting for.
The most interesting character here is an animal, a sturdy-looking white and black bulldog, who appears throughout the movie, angel style, to speak the truth -- silently. In this load of mind-bendy bushwa, he's the only thing worth watching, or listening to.stephanie zacharek
Paradigms can be asked to show their worth, an some of them do not stand up.simon blackburn
Now if a man tried To take his time on Earth And prove before he died What one man's life could be worth, Well I wonder what would happen to this world.harry chapin
Clarke's Law of Revolutionary Ideas: Every revolutionary idea in science, politics, art, or whatever seems to evoke three stages of reaction. They may be summed up by the phrases: (1) "It's completely impossible – don't waste my time"; (2) "It's possible, but it's not worth doing"; (3) "I said it was a good idea all along."arthur c. clarke
When our individual interests and prospects do not seem worth living for, we are in desperate need for something apart from us to live for. All forms of dedication, devotion, loyalty and self-surrender are in essence a desperate clinging to something which might give worth and meaning to our futile, spoiled lives.Eric Hoffer
I can assure you that there is the greatest practical benefit in making a few failures early in life. You learn that which is of inestimable importance that there are a great many people in the world who are just as clever as you are. You learn to put your trust, by and by, in an economy and frugality of the exercise of your powers, both moral and intellectual; and you very soon find out, if you have not found it out before, that patience and tenacity of purpose are worth more than twice their weight of cleverness.thomas henry huxley
For it all depends on how we look at things, and not on how they are in themselves. The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.carl jung
After all the highways, and the trains, and the appointments, and the years, you end up worth more dead than alive.Arthur Miller
Morality is: the mediocre are worth more than the exceptions ... I abhore Christianity with a deadly hatred.friedrich nietzsche
We live in a culture in which intelligence is denied relevance altogether, in a search for radical innocence , or is defended as an instrument of authority and repression. In my view, the only intelligence worth defending is critical, dialectical, skeptical , desimplifying.Susan Sontag
A thoughtful historian tells us that, between the Middle Ages and the nineteenth century, Italy produced three great men. As the first of these, he names Machiavelli , who he says, "taught the world to understand political despotism and to hate it"; as the second, he names Sarpi, who "taught the world after what manner the Holy Spirit guides the Councils of the Church"; and as the third, Galileo , who "taught the world what dogmatic theology is worth when it can be tested by science."Andrew Dickson White
We all are blind until we see That in the human plan Nothing is worth the making if It does not make the man. Why build these cities glorious If man unbuilded goes? In vain we build the world, unless The builder also grows.
Sound, sound the clarion, fill the fife! To all the sensual world proclaim, One crowded hour of glorious life Is worth an age without a name .walter scott
A piece of simple goodness a letter gushing from the heart; a beautiful unstudied vindication of the worth and untiring sweetness of human nature a record of the invulnerability of man, armed with high purpose, sanctified by truth.
History teaches us that a given view has been abandoned in favor of another by all men, or by all competent men, or perhaps by only the most vocal men; it does not teach us whether the change was sound or whether the rejected view deserved to be rejected. Only an impartial analysis of the view in question, an analysis that is not dazzled by the victory or stunned by the defeat of the adherents of the view concerned could teach us anything regarding the worth of the view and hence regarding the meaning of the historical change.leo strauss
My God, I ask not of Thee the leaves of external consequence; I will be content to continue simple, lowly, and plain, if Thou wilt only give me grace to serve Thee and my neighbor. Outward pomp withers like a flower, but inward worth lasts even after death.
No sooner said than done so acts your man of worth.
Marriage is a matter of more worth Than to be dealt in by attorneyship.
