#1. The true worth of a researcher lies in pursuing what he did not seek in his experiment as well as what he sought. - Author: Claude Bernard
True Worth quotes by Claude Bernard
#2. Welcome back, Lydia. How was the tea party?"
"Yes. …...Actually, Edgar, there's something I have to apologise to you about."
"Did something happen?"
"I told everyone that I'm not of noble birth."
"Oh, is that all."
"'Is that all'... They might think you're not a proper aristocrat for having married a commoner."
"Let them think what they want. An aristocrat's true worth isn't their social position or their lineage, but their personal pride. They don't have any proper pride, and that's why they're particular about that sort of thing. - Author: Mizue Tani
True Worth quotes by Mizue Tani
#3. You want the approval of those with whom you come in contact. You want recognition of your true worth. You want a feeling that you are important in your little world. You don't want to listen to cheap, insincere flattery, but you do crave sincere appreciation. You want your friends and associates to be, as Charles Schwab put it, "hearty in their approbation and lavish in their praise." All of us want that. So let's obey the Golden Rule, and give unto others what we would have others give unto us. How? When? Where? The answer is: All the time, everywhere. - Author: Dale Carnegie
True Worth quotes by Dale Carnegie
#4. Our true worth doesn't come from the work we do, it comes from who we are as human beings. - Author: Marie Forleo

True Worth quotes by Hugh Howey
#6. For worship is, essentially, the reverse of sin. Sin began (and begins) when we succumb to the temptation, "You shall be as gods." We make ourselves the center of the universe and dethrone God. By contrast, worship is giving God his true worth; it is acknowledging Him to be the Lord of all things, and the Lord of everything in our lives. He is, indeed, the Most High God! - Author: Sinclair B. Ferguson
True Worth quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
#7. Life, after all, was a secret with the self. The more one gave out, the less there remained for the center
that center which she coveted for herself and recognized instantly in others. Fruits had it, the very heart of, say, a cherry, where the true worth and flavor lay. Some of course were flawed or hollow in there. Many, in fact. - Author: Edna O'Brien
True Worth quotes by Edna O'Brien
#8. Everyday was another day spent waiting. Every night was another night when she might meet someone who would recognize her true worth. - Author: Paulo Coelho
True Worth quotes by Paulo Coelho
#9. Let man reawake and consider what he is compared with the reality of things; regard himself lost in this remote corner of Nature; and from the tiny cell where he lodges, to wit the Universe, weigh at their true worth earth, kingdoms, towns, himself. What is a man face to face with infinity? - Author: Blaise Pascal
True Worth quotes by Blaise Pascal
#10. Let me tell you the truth: You are enough. You are more than enough. God made you, and God does not make junk. "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb." (Ps. 139:13) You are not just a body; you are a body and a soul. You have an inmost being that does not come from your parents, from the physical DNA that they gave you, but from God Almighty who breathed life specially and intentionally into your very self. Not only did God create you, He continues to care for you and watch over you. "Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid." (Luke 12:7) - Author: Leah Darrow
True Worth quotes by Leah Darrow
#11. Few people are modest enough to be estimated at their true worth. - Author: Luc De Clapiers
True Worth quotes by Luc De Clapiers
#12. I have not been that wise. Health I have taken for granted. Love I have demanded, perhaps too much and too often. As for money, I have only realized its true worth when I didn't have it. - Author: Hedy Lamarr
True Worth quotes by Hedy Lamarr
#13. It is not enough merely to exist. It's not enough to say, "I'm earning enough to support my family. I do my work well. I'm a good father, husband, churchgoer." That's all very well. But you must do something more. Seek always to do some good, somewhere. Every man has to seek in his own way to realize his true worth. You must give some time to your fellow man. Even if it's a little thing, do something for those who need help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. For remember, you don't live in a world all your own. Your brothers are here too. - Author: Albert Schweitzer
True Worth quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#14. The NFL determines your worth as a player, but only God knows your true worth. Players work long and hard through pain and suffering, injuries, and pushing themselves further than they imagined going - then poof ! A dream is gone. That kind of treatment can really mess with one's self worth. Getting cut can be deemed a failure, the loss of a lifetime goal.
Thankfully, as Christians our worth is not determined by mistakes we've made, either accidentally or by stupid stuff we've purposely done. Neither is it determined by what anyone else thinks. Our worth is determined by what Jesus Christ has already done. - Author: Jake Byrne
True Worth quotes by Jake Byrne
#15. There's a thing, Father, where men who have thought they were giants their entire lives actually see one for the first time.

It sparks a reaction.

It shows them their true worth.

It shows them their place. - Author: Jonathan Hickman
True Worth quotes by Jonathan Hickman
#16. True worth is as inevitably discovered by the facial expression, as its opposite is sure to be clearly represented there. The human face is nature's tablet, the truth is certainly written thereon. - Author: Johann Kaspar Lavater
True Worth quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#17. The more you think of what is right, the more you tend to make every action in your mind right. The more you think of the goal you have in view, the more life and power you will call into action in working for that goal. The more you think of your ambition, the more power you will give to those faculties that can make your ambitions come true. The more you think of harmony, of health, of success, of happiness, of things that are desirable, of things that are beautiful, of things that have true worth, the more the mind will tend to build all those things in yourself, provided, of course, that all such thinking is subjective. - Author: Christian D. Larson
True Worth quotes by Christian D. Larson
#18. Tom Paine has almost no influence on present-day thinking in the United States because he is unknown to the average citizen. Perhaps I might say right here that this is a national loss and a deplorable lack of understanding concerning the man who first proposed and first wrote those impressive words, 'the United States of America.'

But it is hardly strange.

Paine's teachings have been debarred from schools everywhere and his views of life misrepresented until his memory is hidden in shadows, or he is looked upon as of unsound mind.

We never had a sounder intelligence in this Republic. He was the equal of Washington in making American liberty possible. Where Washington performed Paine devised and wrote. The deeds of one in the Weld were matched by the deeds of the other with his pen.

Washington himself appreciated Paine at his true worth. Franklin knew him for a great patriot and clear thinker. He was a friend and confidant of Jefferson, and the two must often have debated the academic and practical phases of liberty.

I consider Paine our greatest political thinker. As we have not advanced, and perhaps never shall advance, beyond the Declaration and Constitution, so Paine has had no successors who extended his principles. Although the present generation knows little of Paine's writings, and although he has almost no influence upon contemporary thought, Americans of the future will justly appraise his work. I am certain of - Author: Thomas A. Edison
True Worth quotes by Thomas A. Edison
#19. We esteem in the world those who do not merit our esteem, and neglect persons of true worth; but the world is like the ocean
the pearl is in its depths, the seaweed swims. - Author: George Pope Morris
True Worth quotes by George Pope Morris
#20. True worth is in being, not seeming - Author: Alice Cary
True Worth quotes by Alice Cary
Our true worth lies in our character, not in our accomplishments - Author: Kamil Ali
True Worth quotes by Kamil Ali
#22. Few see beyond the outward appearance
And recognize the true worth of a human soul.
When they do, miracles occur. - Author: Thomas S. Monson
True Worth quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#23. great failing is "to see yourself as more than you are and to value yourself at less than your true worth." A - Author: Ryan Holiday
True Worth quotes by Ryan Holiday
#24. Because of my value, I veil myself ... If I show too much, I wouldn't be revealing my true worth to you. I'd be distracting you from what matters most. - Author: Jason Evert
True Worth quotes by Jason Evert

#29. It's not enough merely to exist. Every man has to seek in his own way to make his own self more noble and to relize his own true worth. - Author: Albert Schweitzer
True Worth quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#30. Anyone can make a mistake ... It's how they learn from it and recover from it that shows their true worth. - Author: John Flanagan
True Worth quotes by John Flanagan
#31. Our testimonies, our closeness to our Father in Heaven, and our ability to serve and love and laugh and enjoy life do not depend on whether we are married or single. If we look to Christ for answers, He will give them. It also follows that with our increased devotion and understanding of Him, the happier and more complete we will become and the more we will comprehend our true worth in the sight of God. - Author: Kristen McMain Oaks
True Worth quotes by Kristen McMain Oaks
#32. Ou don't always know the true worth of a women's love until it becomes a memory. - Author: Georgia Cates
True Worth quotes by Georgia Cates
#33. When a soul in sin, under the impetus of grace, turns to God, there is penance; but when a soul in sin refuses to change, God sends chastisement. This chastisement need not be external, and certainly it is never arbitrary; it comes as an inevitable result of breaking God's moral law. But the entrenched forces of the modern world are irrational, men nowadays do not always interpret disasters as the moral events they are. When calamity strikes the flint of human hearts, sparks of sacred fire are kindled and men will normally begin to make an estimate of their true worth. In previous ages this was usual: a disordered individual could find his way back to peace because he lived in an objective world inspired by Christian order. But the frustrated man of today, having lost his faith in God, living as he does, in a disordered chaotic world, has no beacon to guide him. In times of trouble he sometimes turns in upon himself, like a serpent devouring its own tail. Given such a man, who worships the false trinity of (1) his own pride, which acknowledges no law; (2) his own sensuality, which makes earthly comfort it goal; (3) his license, which interprets liberty as the absences of all restraint and law - then a cancer is created which is impossible to cure except through an operation or calamity unmistakable as God's action in history. It is always through sweat and blood and tears that the soul is purged of its animal egotism and laid open to the Spirit … Catastrophe can be to a world - Author: Fulton J. Sheen
True Worth quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#34. The true worth of a race must be measured by the character of its womanhood. - Author: Mary McLeod Bethune
True Worth quotes by Mary McLeod Bethune
#35. If the pursuit of God's glory is not ordered above the pursuit of man's good in the affections of the heart and the priorities of the Church, man will not be well served, and God will not be duly honored. I am not pleading for a diminishing of missions but for a magnifying of God. When the flame of worship burns with the heat of God's true worth, the light of missions will shine to the darkest peoples on earth. And I long for that day to come! - Author: John Piper
True Worth quotes by John Piper
#36. I think you judge yourself too severely, a quality that always distinguishes people of true worth. - Author: Carlos Ruiz Zafon
True Worth quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#37. True success transpires from understanding ones true worth. - Author: N.R. Jones
True Worth quotes by N.R. Jones
#38. It is man's foremost duty to awaken the understanding of the inner self and to know his own real inner greatness. Once he knows his true worth, he can know the worth of others. - Author: Swami Muktananda
True Worth quotes by Swami Muktananda
#39. It is my right to be rich, happy, and successful.
Money flows to me freely, copiously, and endlessly.
I am forever conscious of my true worth. I give of my talents freely, and I am wonderfully blessed financially. It is wonderful! - Author: Joseph Murphy
True Worth quotes by Joseph Murphy
#40. He who understands you is greater kin to you than your own brother. For even your own kindred neither understand you nor know your true worth. - Author: Khalil Gibran
True Worth quotes by Khalil Gibran
#41. Our radicals fail to realize that to accomplish the reorganization of work, it is necessary to have workers – and workers with the free spirit, the rebellious spirit, which will consider its own worth and refuse to accept the slavish conditions of capitalism. These must be bred in schools where work is done, and done proudly, and in full consciousness of its value; where the dubious services of the capitalist will likewise be rated at their true worth; and no man reckoned as above another, unless he has done a greater social service. Where political institutions and the politicians who operate them…will be candidly criticized, and repudiate when justice dictates so, whether in the teaching of their past history, or their present actions in current events. - Author: Voltairine De Cleyre
True Worth quotes by Voltairine De Cleyre
#42. The true worth of a man is not to be found in man himself, but in the colours and textures that come alive in others. - Author: Albert Schweitzer
True Worth quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#43. I think an artist's true worth comes through an inter-generational thing - when you go beyond your own time, and start influencing people in a greater way than just what surrounds you. - Author: Daryl Hall
True Worth quotes by Daryl Hall
#44. She has lived under the covers of selfless love, and so was imbibed by her.
Agonies were many that flamed through her heart,
All she found,
were ways to cover it up.
To the world, a girl full of life,
only in solitude she knew her true worth. - Author: Priyansha Vashi
True Worth quotes by Priyansha Vashi
#45. That man, we may be sure, is a person of true worth, whom those who envy him most are yet forced to praise. - Author: Francois De La Rochefoucauld
True Worth quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#46. Look in, let not either the proper quality, or the true worth of anything pass thee, before thou hast fully it. - Author: Marcus Aurelius
True Worth quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#47. Women are gifts, open them with care, judge them with leniecy, test and weigh their depths, then accept those with true worth and value. - Author: Michael Bassey Johnson
True Worth quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#48. Would you please come out?"
now looked down at her tattered dress and hesitated. That's when she heard her mother's voice in her head again, another memory from long ago. They'd encountered some beggars in the village and she recalled asking her mother why they dressed so differently. You must look past appearances, Snow, she remembered her mother telling her. A person's true worth is always found within. - Author: Jen Calonita
True Worth quotes by Jen Calonita
#49. We all make mistakes, but it's how we deal with the consequences that show our true worth, - Author: Freda Lightfoot
True Worth quotes by Freda Lightfoot
#50. Yes, it's absolutely true that anything worth doing is worth doing poorly - until you can learn to do it well. - Author: Zig Ziglar
True Worth quotes by Zig Ziglar
#51. U r unique. U r miracle. Nobody knows his true worth, until he doesn't rise. - Author: Naresh Sharma
True Worth quotes by Naresh Sharma
#52. A life well-lived is not measured by material possessions or the size of the funeral turnout. The quantity and depth of laugh lines on the face of the person lying in repose in their coffin reveals a life's true worth. - Author: Stewart Stafford
True Worth quotes by Stewart Stafford
#53. The true worth of a soul is revealed as much by the motive it attributes to the actions of others as by its own deeds. - Author: Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
True Worth quotes by Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
#54. The course of our lives is determined by how we react
what we decide and what we do
at the darkest of times. The nature of that response determines a person's true worth and greatness. - Author: Daisaku Ikeda
True Worth quotes by Daisaku Ikeda
#55. Not what you possess but what you do with what you have, determines your true worth. - Author: Thomas Carlyle
True Worth quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#56. Ask yourself how many of the billions of inhabitants of this planet have any idea of how rare it is to have been born as a human being. How many of those who understand the rarity of human birth ever think of using that chance to practice the Dharma? How many of those who think of practice actually do? How many of those who start continue? ... But once you see the unique opportunity that human life can bring, you will definitely direct all your energy into reaping its true worth by putting the Dharma into practice. - Author: Joseph Goldstein
True Worth quotes by Joseph Goldstein
#57. It is easy to drown yourself effortlessly into that which is truly profound and do no realise its true worth. And since the restless illusion which brings no pleasure even if you drain it to the dregs lead us by the nose and makes us dance a merry dance to its tune and we take it to be the lost desirable thing - Author: Rabindranath Tagore
True Worth quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#58. What is really beautiful must always be true. - Author: Stendhal
True Worth quotes by Stendhal
#59. There are only 3 things that can make your dreams come true: your thoughts, your words, and your actions. - Author: Mike Dooley
True Worth quotes by Mike Dooley
#60. The number of her acquaintances multiplied over the years as the number of her true friendships diminished. The Grant Longitudinal Study found that people who were neglected in childhood are much more likely to be friendless in old age... Erica was not solitary. But sometimes she felt she lived in crowded solitude. She was around a shifting mass of semi-friends, but was without a small circle of intimates.
Over the years, in other words, she had become more superficial. She had been publicly active but privately neglectful. She had, over the course of her career, reorganized her own brain in ways that were perhaps necessary to professional achievement, but which were not satisfying now that her drive for worldly achievement had been fulfilled.
She entered retirement beset by a feeling of general numbness. p341-2 - Author: David Brooks
True Worth quotes by David Brooks
#61. It's not enough to fight for a better world; we also have to live lives worth fighting for. - Author: Eric Greitens
True Worth quotes by Eric Greitens
#62. ...though it was too true that life as she is lived has a way of being curiously different from life as described by novelists. - Author: Stella Gibbons
True Worth quotes by Stella Gibbons
#63. Nothing is easy, and, with respect to legal work, that was absolutely true. - Author: Kenneth Eade
True Worth quotes by Kenneth Eade
#64. The enemy - the indispensible devil of every mass movement - is omnipresent. He plots both outside and inside the ranks of the faithful. It is his voice that speaks through the mouth of the dissenter, and the deviationists are his stooges. If anything goes wrong within the movement, it is his doing. It is the sacred duty of the true believer to be suspicious. He must be constantly on the lookout for saboteurs, spies and traitors. - Author: Eric Hoffer
True Worth quotes by Eric Hoffer
#65. There's nothing like meeting someone's family to get a true sense of them and a reflection of their ethics and personality. It just makes them a more rounded person. - Author: Lenora Crichlow
True Worth quotes by Lenora Crichlow
#66. Mine is a most peaceable disposition. My wishes are: a humble cottage with a thatched roof, but a good bed, good food, the freshest milk and butter, flowers before my window, and a few fine trees before my door; and if God wants to make my happiness complete, he will grant me the joy of seeing some six or seven of my enemies hanging from those trees. Before death I shall, moved in my heart, forgive them all the wrong they did me in their lifetime. One must, it is true, forgive one's enemies
but not before they have been hanged. - Author: Heinrich Heine
True Worth quotes by Heinrich Heine
#67. Oh, this absolute loneliness and the game - loving to play the game, loving to go and tell stories to men that certainly weren't true, just for the sport of it, just to see how they would react. - Author: Jennifer Beals
True Worth quotes by Jennifer Beals
#68. The Christian woman should remember that she cannot buy true attractiveness; that radiance which really shines forth in beauty is of the heart and spirit and not of the body. - Author: Aiden Wilson Tozer
True Worth quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#69. I have my own hard earned money and if I buy a fly rod I'm going to give my money to the company that's giving me value. I'm going to the guy who gives me my money's worth. - Author: Paul Reed Smith
True Worth quotes by Paul Reed Smith
#70. The worth of a faith does not consist in the clarity with which it is stated but in the steadfastness with which it is defended. - Author: Kurt Hahn
True Worth quotes by Kurt Hahn
#71. An Act for establishing religious Freedom.

Section 1

Whereas, Almighty God hath created the mind free;

That all attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens, or by civil incapacitations tend only to beget habits of hypocrisy and meanness, and therefore are a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, who being Lord, both of body and mind yet chose not to propagate it by coercions on either, as was in his Almighty power to do,

That the impious presumption of legislators and rulers, civil as well as ecclesiastical, who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavouring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world and through all time;

That to compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions, which he disbelieves is sinful and tyrannical;

That even the forcing him to support this or that teacher of his own religious persuasion is depriving him of the comfortable liberty of giving his contributions to the particular pastor, whose morals he would make his pattern, and whose powers he feels most persuasive to righteousness, and is withdrawing from the Ministry those temporary rewards, which, proceeding from an approbation of their person - Author: Thomas Jefferson
True Worth quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#72. I can't go to Amsterdam. One of my doctors thinks it's a bad idea."
He was quiet for a second. "God," he said. "I should've just paid for it myself. Should've just taken you straight from the Funky Bones to Amsterdam."
"But then I would've had a probably fatal episode of deoxygenation in Amsterdam, and my body would have been shipped home in the cargo hold of an airplane," I said.
"Well, yeah," he said. "But before that, my grand romantic gesture would have totally gotten me laid."
I laughed pretty hard, hard enought that I felt where the chest tube had been.
"You laugh because it's true," he said.
I laughed again.
"It's true, isn't it!"
"Probably not," I said, and then after a moment added, "although you never know. - Author: John Green
True Worth quotes by John Green
#73. To call a story a true story is an insult to both art and truth. - Author: Vladimir Nabokov
True Worth quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#74. Men became scientific because they expected Law in Nature, and they expected Law in Nature because they believed in a Legislator. In most modern scientists this belief has died: it will be interesting to see how long their confidence in uniformity survives it. Two significant developments have already appeared - the hypothesis of a lawless sub-nature, and the surrender of the claim that science is true. We may be living nearer than we suppose to the end of the Scientific Age. - Author: C.S. Lewis
True Worth quotes by C.S. Lewis
#75. Scratch a conservative and you find someone who prefers the past over any future. Scratch a liberal and find a closet aristocrat. It's true! Liberal governments always develop into aristocracies. The bureaucracies betray the true intent of people who form such governments. Right from the first, the little people who formed the governments which promised to equalize the social burdens found themselves suddenly in the hands of bureaucratic aristocracies. Of course, all bureaucracies follow this pattern, but what a hypocrisy to find this even under a communized banner. Ahhh, well, if patterns teach me anything it's that patterns are repeated. My oppressions, by and large, are no worse than any of the others and, at least, I teach a new lesson. - - Author: Frank Herbert
True Worth quotes by Frank Herbert
#76. I'm less desperate now to express what's inside me, that's true - I act these days because it keeps me awake and interested, an eternal student. - Author: Emmanuelle Beart
True Worth quotes by Emmanuelle Beart
#77. I will be very careful the next time I fall in love, she told herself. Also, she had made a promise to herself that she intended on keeping. She was never going to go out with another writer: no matter how charming, sensitive, inventive or fun they could be. They weren't worth it in the long run. They were emotionally too expensive and the upkeep was complicated. They were like having a vacuum cleaner around the house that broke all the time and only Einstein could fix it. She wanted her next lover to be a broom. - Author: Richard Brautigan
True Worth quotes by Richard Brautigan
#78. So always avoid banality. That is, avoid illustrating the author's words and remarks. If you want to create a true masterpiece you must always avoid beautiful lies: the truths on the calender under each date you find a proverb or saying such as: "He who is good to others will be happy." But this is not true. It is a lie. The spectator, perhaps, is content. The spectator likes easy truths. But we are not there to please or pander to the spectator. We are here to tell the truth. - Author: Jerzy Grotowski
True Worth quotes by Jerzy Grotowski
#79. Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water. Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible, nothing can surpass it. The soft overcomes the hard; the gentle overcomes the rigid. Everyone knows this is true, but few can put it into practice. Therefore the Master remains serene in the midst of sorrow. Evil cannot enter his heart. Because he has given up helping, he is people's greatest help. True words seem paradoxical. - Author: Laozi
True Worth quotes by Laozi
#80. And in our room, we made love like flames–opening, blending, burning. We made love like animals, like gods, like dreams. Was it worth waiting for? Gods, yes. It was worth worlds, that night, worth souls, worth eternity. - Author: Neil Gaiman
True Worth quotes by Neil Gaiman
#81. It's true that people were told facial hair was not appreciated by the British public, but I just decided to keep the moustache. - Author: Bob Ainsworth
True Worth quotes by Bob Ainsworth
#82. He didn't pick her; you don't choose who you fall in love with any more than you choose the shape of your bones. - Author: C.J. Carlyon
True Worth quotes by C.J. Carlyon
#83. The real secret, though, is that nobody belongs, whether they are natives or not. After expulsion from paradise all humans are in exile. You can be a Colonel Sanders chicken, born, raised and fried in one quarter of a square foot and you'll still be an outsider. The thing we call reality is a holding tank for people who must worry about belonging -- it's a worrier prison. Don't worry people! You'll soon be fried and eaten. A few of us are writers, hence double-alienated, but happier (because we are busy)
If it's true that many of us go through life feeling like we don't belong, could digression (geographical and otherwise) be our way of trying to forget, or to escape, that feeling?

Bad news: there are no digressions. Everything is connected in the whole darn ball of yarn: start pulling at any end and you'll get to the same place. On the other hand, most normal people dislike digression because they have to lose themselves to follow you. The surest way to drive your dear ones crazy is to digress. In private, it's an offense. In public it's "art," "performance. - Author: Andrei Codrescu
True Worth quotes by Andrei Codrescu
#84. The seed is the fetus, in other words, a true plant with its parts (that is, its leaves, of which there are usually two, its stalk or stem, and its bud) completely fashioned. - Author: Marcello Malpighi
True Worth quotes by Marcello Malpighi
#85. I don't think it's an ethical or moral issue, or even that people are stupid, but I do feel like as a culture things are out of balance, perverted, and inverted. Things that are ridiculous are worshipped, and things that are important are ridiculed. I think that's something worth thinking about. - Author: Ian MacKaye
True Worth quotes by Ian MacKaye
#86. Kant thought things, not because they were true, but because he was Kant. - Author: W. Somerset Maugham
True Worth quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#87. What does it avail, one will say, that this man has so much talent, that he is so active therewith, and that he exerts thereby a useful influence over the community, thus having a great worth both in relation to his own happy condition and to the benefit of others, if he does not possess a good will? - Author: Immanuel Kant
True Worth quotes by Immanuel Kant
#88. There is a difference between the truth and what we wish were true. Sighing, - Author: Patrick Rothfuss
True Worth quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#89. Long I lay
in the earth
wondering what
death is worth

Ran the hills
Danced the valleys
Paid the bills
Drank in alleys

Sad the demon
Out the spot
Nothing living
Nothing not - Author: Barry Gifford
True Worth quotes by Barry Gifford
#90. Even though I was young, I could see the pain of the flesh and the worth of the pain. - Author: Amy Tan
True Worth quotes by Amy Tan
#91. I didn't want to go to sleep knowing I would just wake up in the morning. - Author: Helen DeWitt
True Worth quotes by Helen DeWitt
