You have to start living for something that's worth dying for.
You'd never look at a Rembrandt and say, 'That's just wood and canvas and paint - how much?!' It's all about how many people want it. It works on a pair of jeans as well - they're just material and stitching, and as soon as you walk out of the shop, they're worth nothing.
It is the Nobel Prize I want. It's worth $400,000.
I have a life that I enjoy; I try and value the things that I think are worth valuing and everything else is icing. You know, it is a kick to go down the red carpet in that dress and then you go back home.
Most of us really aren't horribly unique. There are 6 billion of us. Put 'em all in one room and very few would stand out as individuals. So maybe we ought to think of worth in terms of our ability to get along as a part of nature, rather than being the lords over nature.
I don't really care where movies come from as long as they're worth making.
The working class has been turned into a consuming class - a situation has been created where people value their worth by what they can afford.
My belief, for what it is worth, is that city dwellers cannot understand the world. Insulated from reality by complex and expert systems of provision and police, baffled by fashion and spectacle, city dwellers can distinguish neither the sources of their existence nor the consequences.
Sometimes there are things worth risking your life for. It was Jesus who said if you want to save your life, you have to lose it.
Any movie that has that spirit and says things can be changed is worth making.
Whether my columns are worth reading isn't for me to say.
But in answer to your question about the conspiracy angle, I think that any historian worth his salt, and this is where I fault Stephen Ambrose and a lot of these guys who attack me - not all of life is a result of conspiracy by any means! Accident occurs alongside conspiracy.
The soul is both the most fragile and most resilient thing about you; a healthy soul is what holds you together when your world falls apart. Since you will carry your soul into eternity, it's worth checking up on it at least as often as your teeth.
Without the element of enjoyment, it is not worth trying to excel at anything.
Without the faintest possibility of finding a job, I decided to devote myself to literature: it was about time to find out what I was worth as a writer.
Far too many girls' and women's romantic relationships are formed around a negation of their own worth and attributes rather than a confirmation of them.
Futures thinking is hard work. Fortunately, you do get better at it with practice. It's worth the effort.
I think I just realized that having a problem - an eating disorder - it's not healthy and you can actually die from that. I realized it's not worth it and you just need to be healthy.
Our Sheffield and London homes are worth well over a million but the bank owns most of them - we are mortgaged up to the gills.
I think you just have to take the bad with the good and you're going to get hurt more, but it's worth it.
The problem with rich lists is... it is impossible to know what someone is worth until they have died and you have sold it.
The richer you are and the more financial advisers you employ, the less likelihood there is that you can ever discover what you are really worth.
I look for a sense of reality with everything I did. I didn't work in a studio, I didn't light anything. I found a way of working which pleased me because I didn't have to frighten people with heavy equipment. It was that little black box and me and £5 worth of film in my pocket or maybe it was only £2 in those days.
I think an artist's true worth comes through an inter-generational thing - when you go beyond your own time, and start influencing people in a greater way than just what surrounds you.
I'm not going to say paint is an easy spruce-up. It takes time, it needs touch-ups, and you have to be very methodical. But it is worth it, and it isn't particularly expensive.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
