“It shouldn’t be easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It’s the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something’s difficult to come by, you’ll do that much more to make sure it’s even harder–or impossible– to lose.”
― Sarah Dessen
Arthur Schopenhauer

Ayn Rand

“Degrees of ability vary, but the basic principle remains the same: the degree of a man’s independence, initiative and personal love for his work determines his talent as a worker and his worth as a man. Independence is the only gauge of human virtue and value. What a man is and makes of himself; not what he has or hasn’t done for others. There is no substitute for personal dignity. There is no standard of personal dignity except independence.”
― Ayn Rand

― W. Somerset Maugham
Moderata Fonte

“[M]en, though they know full well how much women are worth and how great the benefits we bring them, nonetheless seek to destroy us out of envy for our merits. It’s just like the crow, when it produces white nestlings: it is so stricken by envy, knowing how black it is itself, that it kills its own offspring out of pique.”
― Moderata Fonte
Yukito Kishiro

You were formed in the bedroom of the gods, you were conceived in the garden of the eternal!”

José Ortega y Gasset

“On the Bigotry of Culture:
: it presented us with culture, with thought as something justified in itself, that is, which requires no justification but is valid by it’s own essence, whatever its concrete employment and content maybe. Human life was to put itself at the service of culture because only thus would it become charged with value. From which it would follow that human life, our pure existence was, in itself, a mean and worthless thing.”
― José Ortega y Gasset
Margaret Atwood

“Of course (said Oryx), having a money value was no substitute for love. Every child should have love, every person should have it. . . . but love was undependable, it came and then it went, so it was good to have a money value, because then at least those who wanted to make a profit from you would make sure you were fed enough and not damaged too much. Also there were many who had neither love nor a money value, and having one of these things was better than having nothing.”
― Margaret Atwood
“No matter how pathetic or pitiful, every human is fated to have one moment in their lives in which they can change their own destiny.”
― Takayuki Yamaguchi
Marcus Aurelius

― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Wendell Berry

“The industrial mind is a mind without compunction; it simply accepts that people, ultimately, will be treated as things and that things, ultimately, will be treated as garbage. (A Defense of the Family Farm, 1986)”
― Wendell Berry
“A lost person or article is still what it is, still valuable in itself, but in the wrong place, disconnected from its purpose and unable to be or do whatever it is intended to be or do.”
― David Winter
Criss Jami

“You ask me why I don’t speak
Not a word at will
But write so much worth well over a mill’
Well I value words like I value kisses
A sober one, a closer one penetrates the heart
Darling it’s how it mends it”
― Criss Jami
“I am on the side of the unregenerate who affirm the worth of life as an end in itself, as against the saints who deny it.”
― Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
John Lanchester

“On the opposite wall was a Damien Hirst spot painting, bought by Arabella after a decent bonus season. Roger’s considered view of the painting, looking at it from aesthetic, art-historical, interior-design, and psychological points of view, was that it had cost forty-seven thousand pounds, plus V.A.T.”
― John Lanchester
Toba Beta

“When you’ve succeeded, you’d say:
‘Indeed I’d to go through those hell
before fit into all of this happiness.”

Criss Jami

“Ultimate prosperity is one’s value within. It takes a man of depth, morality, and charm to be envied yet without a sign of wealth or romance. A passion to prove such inner worth is his permission to achieve whatever he desires.”
― Criss Jami
“We are spiritual children of God the Father. We preach it. We sing it. But do we really understand it? Sometimes it’s easy to tell others they are loved, but not so easy to believe it of ourselves — not because we don’t think God loves His children, but because we may feel undeserving of His love. The adversary loves to remind us who we are not. Not pretty. Not smart. Not strong. But God would not have sacrificed His Son to save us if we aren’t worth saving.”
― Toni Sorenson
Toba Beta

“Don’t ever reject a small
when you can’t take it all.”
― Toba Beta
Louise Penny

“And Beauvoir knew then the man was a saint. He’s been touched by any number of medical men and women. All healers, all well intentioned, some kind, some rough. All made it clear they wanted him to live, but none had made him feel that his life was precious, was worth saving, was worth something.”
― Louise Penny
John Steinbeck

“But you can’t start. Only a baby can start. You and me – why, we’re all that’s been. The anger of a moment, the thousand pictures, that’s us. This land, this red land, is us; and the flood years and the dust years and the drought years are us. We can’t start again. The bitterness we sold to the junk man – he got it all right, but we have it still. And when the owner men told us to go, that’s us; and when the tractor hit the house, that’s us until we’re dead. To California or any place – every one a drum major leading a parade of hurts, marching with our bitterness. And some day – the armies of bitterness will all be going the same way. And they’ll all walk together, and there’ll be a dead terror from it.”
― John Steinbeck
C. JoyBell C.

“I’ve learned, that not all worth is measured by price. I’ve found so many gems that didn’t cost me much!”
― C. JoyBell C.
Kim Harrison

“Nina sniffed, shifting her shoulders to look at the sky through the branches. “She’s a sweet girl, but poor.”

Ire pricked through me, and the last of his charisma shredded. “Being poor is not an indication of potential or worth. It’s a lack of resources.”
― Kim Harrison, A Perfect Blood
