When everyone at school is speaking one language, and a lot of your classmates' parents also speak it, and you go home and see that your community is different -there is a sense of shame attached to that. It really takes growing up to treasure the specialness of being different.
We think that forgiveness is weakness, but it's absolutely not; it takes a very strong person to forgive.
T. D. Jakes
Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we're still at the mercy of nature.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance.
When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
I have always believed that if you need to take your clothes off to get your man, you've begun to lose the battle. If you pull it off right, you can do it in a very classy way... Being sexy is about suggestion; it's about the tease. It's not about being obvious and forcing yourself out in the open. That takes all the fun out of being a woman.
It takes more than just a good looking body. You've got to have the heart and soul to go with it.
It takes a lot of people to make a winning team. Everybody's contribution is important.
Gary David Goldberg
Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.
Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.
Wherever my story takes me, however dark and difficult the theme, there is always some hope and redemption, not because readers like happy endings, but because I am an optimist at heart. I know the sun will rise in the morning, that there is a light at the end of every tunnel.
It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.
Robert H. Schuller
I always joke about letting the haters motivate you. Everybody has that in their life, people who doubt them or make them feel less than they are. It just takes faith and belief in yourself, and you've got to dig deep into that. That has to come from you - nobody's going to give you that.
Confession is always weakness. The grave soul keeps its own secrets, and takes its own punishment in silence.
It takes no compromising to give people their rights. It takes no money to respect the individual. It takes no survey to remove repressions.
Anyone can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad, and that's why I call you dad, because you are so special to me. You taught me the game and you taught me how to play it right.
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.
Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.
Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.
It doesn't take a lot of strength to hang on. It takes a lot of strength to let go.
J. C. Watts
You must never be satisfied with losing. You must get angry, terribly angry, about losing. But the mark of the good loser is that he takes his anger out on himself and not his victorious opponents or on his teammates.
Richard M. Nixon
Failure is unimportant. It takes courage to make a fool of yourself.
The average person puts only 25% of his energy and ability into his work. The world takes off its hat to those who put in more than 50% of their capacity, and stands on its head for those few and far between souls who devote 100%.
Give to everyone who begs from you; and of him who takes away your goods do not ask them again. And as you wish that men would do to you, do so to them.
Leonardo da Vinci
