If you are going to do anything worth doing, you need a lot of pigs." The - Author: Michael Lewis

Anything Worth Doing quotes by Robert Penn Warren
#19. You must either make a tool of the creature, or a man of him. You cannot make both. Men were not intended to work with the accuracy of tools, to be precise and perfect in all their actions. If you will have that precision out of them, and make their fingers measure degrees like cog-wheels, and their arms strike curves like compasses, you must unhumanize them. All the energy of their spirits must be given to make cogs and compasses of themselves ... .On the other hand, if you will make a man of the working creature, you cannot make him a tool. Let him but begin to imagine, to think, to try to do anything worth doing; and the engine-turned precision is lost at once. Out come all his roughness, all his dulness, all his incapability; shame upon shame, failure upon failure, pause after pause: but out comes the whole majesty of him also; and we know the height of it only when we see the clouds settling upon him. - Author: John Ruskin
Anything Worth Doing quotes by John Ruskin
#20. We see this as an investment in community. Anything worth doing will take time and cost you something. We noticed, as our attention focused more on families and children, that many people in our community protect themselves from inconvenience as though inconvenience is deadly. We have decided that we are not inconvenienced by inconvenience. - Author: Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield

His grandfather had expected nothing of Ned, and Ned, young idiot that he had been, had delivered spectacularly. - Author: Courtney Milan
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Courtney Milan

Anything Worth Doing quotes by L.J. Shen
#30. Why did Plato say that poets should be chased out of the republic? Precisely because every poet and every artist is an antisocial being. He's not that way because he wants to be; he can't be any other way ... and if he really is an artist it is in his nature not to want to be admitted, because if he is admitted it can only mean he is doing something which is understood, approved, and therefore old hat - worthless. Anything new, anything worth doing, can't be recognized. - Author: Pablo Picasso
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Pablo Picasso

Anything Worth Doing quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#32. I'm excited by the band [White Stripes]. It really excites me. But it wouldn't excite me if there weren't those limitations, if we weren't living in that box, if we weren't trapped. Once that goes away, then I'll know that it's not worth doing it any more. - Author: Jack White
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Jack White
#33. It's not worth doing if you're not going to do it perfectly. - Author: A.C. Efverman
Anything Worth Doing quotes by A.C. Efverman
#34. Shit is fucked up when it comes to appearances and women. We're expected to be hot - but if we are, we're vain and stupid. And if we're not hot we're useless. Kind of hard to get around. But we're not stupid. We know that we're doing damage to ourselves - not only to our bodies but also to our mental well-being. And it's not worth it. - Author: Jessica Valenti
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Jessica Valenti
#35. It's all right now, Louisa: it's all right, young Thomas,' said Mr. Bounderby; 'you won't do so any more. I'll answer for it's being all over with father. Well, Louisa, that's worth a kiss, isn't it?'

'You can take one, Mr. Bounderby,' returned Louisa, when she had coldly paused, and slowly walked across the room, and p. 18ungraciously raised her cheek towards him, with her face turned away.

'Always my pet; ain't you, Louisa?' said Mr. Bounderby. 'Good-bye, Louisa!'

He went his way, but she stood on the same spot, rubbing the cheek he had kissed, with her handkerchief, until it was burning red. She was still doing this, five minutes afterwards.

'What are you about, Loo?' her brother sulkily remonstrated. 'You'll rub a hole in your face.'

'You may cut the piece out with your penknife if you like, Tom. I wouldn't cry! - Author: Charles Dickens
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Charles Dickens

Anything Worth Doing quotes by Joan Didion

Anything Worth Doing quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#43. To deny our errors is to deny ourself, for to be human is to be imperfect, somehow error - prone.

Anything Worth Doing quotes by Ernest Kurtz

#45. I know you were hurt and have every reason to be angry, but just know that there hasn't been a day that has gone by that I haven't thought about you and Ty. Maybe that's my punishment, knowing you are doing well and knowing I had nothing to do with it. For what it's worth, I'm proud of you, for having done so great despite people breaking their promises to you. - Author: T.J. Klune
Anything Worth Doing quotes by T.J. Klune
#46. A man doesn't amount to something because he has been successful at a third-rate career like journalism. It is evidence, that's all: evidence that if he buckled down and worked hard, he might some day do something really worth doing. - Author: Russell Baker
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Russell Baker
#47. It's easy to feel uncared for when people aren't able to communicate and connect with you in the way you need. And it's so hard not to internalize that silence as a reflection on your own worth. But the truth is that the way people operate is not about you. Most people are so caught up in their own responsibilities, struggles, and anxiety that the thought of asking someone else how they're doing doesn't even cross their mind. They aren't inherently bad or uncaring--they're just busy and self-focused. And that's okay. It's not evidence of some fundamental failing on your part. It doesn't make you unloveable or invisible. It just means that those people aren't very good at looking beyond their own world. But the fact that you are--that despite the darkened you feel, you have the ability to share you love and light with others--is a strength. Your work isn't to change who you are; it's to find people who are able to give you the connection you need. Because despite what you feel, you are not too much. You are not too sensitive or too needy. You are thoughtful and empathetic. You are compassionate and kind. And with or without anyone's acknowledgement or affection, you are enough. - Author: Daniell Koepke
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Daniell Koepke
#48. No amount of telling is worth doing it once. - Author: Terry Goodkind
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Terry Goodkind
#49. The theater needs continual reminders that there is nothing more debasing than the work of those who do well what is not worth doing at all. - Author: Gore Vidal
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Gore Vidal
#50. Growing up feels like your skin no longer fits. Like you just want to crawl out of that thinly stretched space and lay down in the grass and sob for hours. Instead, I am in a cafe eating lunch and trying not to scream. Looking around wondering if anyone else in this building is doing the same thing, wondering if they ever have and, if so, how they got through it. Maybe I would calm down if I just had the assurance that other people have looked in the mirror and no longer recognized themselves. Maybe if I could sit across the table from an elderly woman and have her tell me that she lived through days where the covers over her head felt even better than an embrace and weeks where she drank her tears to keep from wetting her shirt sleeves, but that those years shaped her into an iron skeleton with a tender heart. That "worth it" was an understatement. Maybe then I would feel okay. - Author: Kalyn Roseanne Livernois
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Kalyn Roseanne Livernois
#51. It's hard enough being alive, trying to survive in the world and find your place in it, to do the things you need to do to get by, without wondering if the thing you just did, whatever it was, was worth someone having. - Author: Neil Gaiman
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Neil Gaiman
#52. Your self-worth and self-esteem cannot be changed by doing positive affirmations. If that were the case many people would be super confident and are not. It may appear to work for some, but only because they have already faced the hurts inside that have caused low self-worth and low self-esteem, and are ready to feel differently.

Acknowledging the pain and the suffering that take place inside you, and allowing the feelings, will take time, but this new way of handling these feelings will change the way you relate to you and to the outside world. - Author: Kelly Martin
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Kelly Martin
#53. There'll be a whole lot of things you ain't gonna want to do, but you'll have to do in this life just so you can survive.
'Now, I don't like the idea of what Charlie Simms did to you no more than your Uncle Hammer, but I had to weigh the hurt of what happened to you to what could've happened if I went after him. If I'd-a gone after Charlie Simms and given him a good thrashin', like I felt like doing, the hurt to all of us would've been a whole lot more than the hurt to you. So I let it be. I don't like letting it be, but I can live with that decision.
'But there are other things, Cassie, that if I'd let be, they'd eat away at me and destroy me in the end. And it's the same with you, baby. There are things you can't back down on. Things you gotta take a stand on, but it's up to you to decide what them things are.
'You have to demand respect in this world. Ain't nobody just gonna hand it to you. How you carry yourself, what you stand for, that's how you gain respect. But little one, ain't nobody's respect worth more than your own. You understand that?'
'Now, there ain't no sense going around being mad. You clear your head so you can think sensibly. Then I want you to think real hard about whether Lillian Jean's worth taking a stand about. But keep in mind that Lillian Jean probably won't be the last white person to think you this way. - Author: Mildred D. Taylor
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Mildred D. Taylor
#54. I have never heard a dancer asking for advice about how to stay focused on her footwork, or a painter complaining about the dull day-to-day task of painting. What task worth doing isn't worth daily effort? Do you think Michelangelo was having fun the whole time he was on his back painting the Sistine Chapel's ceiling. - Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#55. There are only two things truly worth doing; making love and raising children. How convenient that the first causes the second. How tragic that the second prevents the first. - Author: Elliot MacDonald
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Elliot MacDonald
#56. Nothing worth doing right is easy. - Author: Mike Matheny
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Mike Matheny

such as making love. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Anything Worth Doing quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#58. Any work that's worth doing has its challenges as well as its opportunities. That's true if you're running a business, it's true if you're trying to help on a campaign. - Author: Carly Fiorina
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Carly Fiorina
#59. It's dangerous and dirty and smells bad and
"Yeah, well, so is sex and drugs and everything else worth doing. - Author: Lili St. Crow
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Lili St. Crow
#60. What's the return on investment of college? What's the return on investment of having children, spending time with friends, listening to music, reading a book? The things that are most worth doing are worth doing for their own sake. Anyone who tells you that the sole purpose of education is the acquisition of negotiable skills is attempting to reduce you to a productive employee at work, a gullible consumer in the market, and a docile subject of the state. What's at stake, when we ask what college is for, is nothing less than our ability to remain fully human. - Author: William Deresiewicz
Anything Worth Doing quotes by William Deresiewicz
#61. Learning texts is worth doing not because it's easy but because it's hard. - Author: Joshua Foer
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Joshua Foer
#62. We all need love. Love for ourselves, yes, that's easy, but we also need to love and be loved by someone outside of ourselves. We need to be chosen by someone, and loved by them. Whether or not we get that in this life is irrelevant. It's the needing it that makes us human, not the getting it. As long as we need it, and know we need it, we're fine. It's when we pull the curtain down and say 'no, I can do this on my own', that's when it's all over. Of course it's true to say that, but doing it isn't worth it. - Author: Max Davine
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Max Davine
#63. Unless we are able to commit to a permanent growing settlement [on Mars], then I don't think just going there with humans and coming back is worth doing. The expense of planning to come back is like the people who left Europe to come to America and then to turn around and go back to Europe, it really doesn't make any sense at all. - Author: Buzz Aldrin
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Buzz Aldrin
#64. Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope.
Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore we must be saved by love.
No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as it is from our standpoint. Therefore we must be saved by the final form of love which is forgiveness. - Author: Reinhold Niebuhr
Anything Worth Doing quotes by Reinhold Niebuhr
