There's nothing more satisfying than seeing a happy and smiling child. I always help in any way I can, even if it's just by signing an autograph. A child's smile is worth more than all the money in the world.
Even good opinions are worth very little unless we hold them in the broad, intelligent, and spacious way.
I had my bad-boy moment in my teens. I'll never do that again. It wasn't pleasant, and I learned my lesson. It was sexy and mysterious, and it's like, 'Look how cool they are,' but it's just not worth it. He was lying to me and accusing me of cheating - but then I realized he was the one cheating.
I don't collect the way other people do. Some people collect rare guitars, like, 'I have a '54 Strat worth $50,000.' And I don't collect the way Nash does. Nash has Duane Allman's guitar and Johnny Cash's guitar. I bought guitars because they sounded good. I played them, they sounded unbelievably good, and I couldn't resist.
Others, amounting to four novels and a mess of short stories which I did not think worth preserving, I have done my best to eliminate from the record by refusing all requests for permission to reprint them, and I hope I have done a good job of making them hard to unearth.
Recently I've been collecting Star Wars figures again. When I was a kid I couldn't afford them. Now I can so I've been buying them and keeping them in their box for a later date when they'll be worth a lot of money.
In acting, you have to know that you are worth something. I knew I had some talent somewhere.
If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Real worth requires no interpreter: its everyday deeds form its emblem.
Fame, money and the size of the market are not very important to me. What is, is writing a book that is worth doing and then publishing it. I don't write books for entertainment, for people to pass the time then throw away.
I am getting to the point where the only love worth being in is the love worth singing about.
A sense of humor keen enough to show a man his own absurdities will keep him from the commission of all sins, or nearly all, save those worth committing.
There is not a single injustice in Northern Ireland that is worth the loss of a single British soldier or a single Irish citizen either.
It is also worth asking whether the strict limitations of Geneva make sense in a war against terrorists.
With any work worth its salt, you have to trust the author enough to take its measure. And if you apply too many preconceptions, you are not taking its measure.
What an artist learns matters little. What he himself discovers has a real worth for him, and gives him the necessary incitement to work.
We had a few tragic accidents in our state, as they've had in every state, from train crashes on down. And really, no text is worth dying for; that is our message to young people. And this is such a new phenomenon when you look at the number of texts and how they've increased exponentially in just the last few years.
A painting that doesn't shock isn't worth painting.

Never throughout history has a man who lived a life of ease left a name worth remembering.
In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
There are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made.
I am disillusioned enough to know that no man's opinion on any subject is worth a damn unless backed up with enough genuine information to make him really know what he's talking about.
H. P. Lovecraft
Discrimination due to age is one of the great tragedies of modern life. The desire to work and be useful is what makes life worth living, and to be told your efforts are not needed because you are the wrong age is a crime.
I'm an emotional eater. If something's worth celebrating, we're going to grab pizza. If it's going bad, girl, pass me the chocolate. Gotta keep it in check!
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
