Fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run.
Women rule the world. It's not really worth fighting because they know what they're doing. Ask Napoleon. Ask Adam. Ask Richard Burton or Richie Sambora. Many a man has crumbled.
Jon Bon Jovi
Two kinds of ballplayers aren't worth a darn: One that never does what he's told, and one who does nothin' except what he's told.
It's very important for people to know themselves and understand what their value system is, because if you don't know what your value system is, then you don't know what risks are worth taking and which ones are worth avoiding.
