But even at the height of these scandals, even at the time when our finances were at their worst, the NAACP branches - the grassroots - kept plugging away. They kept doing what they do, and they do it well.
Most employers just aren't willing to look beyond the dumbest or worst thing someone has done.
Conceal a flaw, and the world will imagine the worst.
Marcus Valerius Martial
Those golden minutes before you are completely awake, when your mind is just drifting, you have no censorship; you are ready to develop any kind of idea. That's when I come up with the best and worst ideas. That is the privilege of being a writer - that you can stay in bed for an hour in the morning and it's work time.
We have this idea of perfection that is so unrealistic. We are our own worst enemy. No one is noticing that little scar.
I have also seen it stated that Capital punishment is murder in its worst form. I should like to know upon what principle of human society these assertions are based and justified.
We are inheriting the worst financial system since the Depression. We're inheriting a situation - when people go back and study major banking crises a quarter century from now, the one that America developed in 2007 and 2008 is going to be one of those crises.
My mother was the worst kind of stage mother. She would make me and my younger sister and brother little duckling costumes and put us in kiddie shows.
The worst manifestations of exhaustion were successfully cured by a long period of rest but it was immediately apparent to me that I had lost once and for all my former capacity for carrying out experimental work until physically tired.
Our worst comes out when we behave like robots or professionals.
I am allergic highly to the sun; that's my worst enemy.
And when I get bored, it's like the worst parts of me come out. I really veer to self-destructive tendencies quickly.
Men are a hundred times worse than you can imagine. We are thinking the worst, shallowest thoughts, all the time.
I got good grades in math, but I never really enjoyed it. My favorite part of math was algebra, but geometry was the worst.
The worst gig story I have is from a club in Alabama that I think is still up and running, so I won't name the name of the club. We got hired in there to play, and the owner was pretty annoying. He kept coming up to me during the show and asking me to play 'Purple Rain.'
You are so much more than the worst thing you've ever done.
The dining room in my old house was truly magnificent, but by far the worst room for conversation. I'd get up from the table, a very long table, and somebody would always say, Paul, I never got to talk to you.
Language is wild - you can't fence it or tell it what to do - and it's the same with people. Even under the worst excesses of Stalinism or consumerism, the human spirit will still express itself.
You get up about 2-3 o'clock in the morning and get through about 7 or 8 and 12 hours later you start all over. That's the worst kind of work a person can do. You have to do these two shifts to get one day.
In America, if you succeed, you don't have to apologize. In Italy, success is envied, and envy is the worst, worst, worst thing in the world.

I really wonder what it is we are doing to ourselves, because I do think women can be the worst ones for picking each other apart.
When I'm left on my own I'm my own worst enemy.
I was in New York City on 9/11. Grief remains from that awful day, but not only grief. There is fear, too, a fear informed by the knowledge that whatever my worst nightmare is, there is someone out there embittered enough to carry it out.
My worst date would be with someone nervous who has nothing to say. I like people who inspire me.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
