It's almost worth having been in the army for the joy your freedom gives you.
John Dos Passos
If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do things worth writing.
I am a poor man and of little worth, who is laboring in that art that God has given me in order to extend my life as long as possible.
All the rights secured to the citizens under the Constitution are worth nothing, and a mere bubble, except guaranteed to them by an independent and virtuous Judiciary.
Gamers always believe that an epic win is possible and that it's always worth trying, and trying now. Gamers don't sit around.
I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being.
A desire presupposes the possibility of action to achieve it; action presupposes a goal which is worth achieving.
And there never was an apple, in Adam's opinion, that wasn't worth the trouble you got into for eating it.
One hour of life, crowded to the full with glorious action, and filled with noble risks, is worth whole years of those mean observances of paltry decorum, in which men steal through existence, like sluggish waters through a marsh, without either honor or observation.
Getting revenge on a guy is just not worth it to me. I mean, it definitely sucks at the time, but obviously you're not supposed to be with that person.
The point of the feminist movement wasn't simply to set our underwear on fire and muscle into small spaces in the male-dominated workplace, but to create a world where the contribution of both sexes was equally valued and no one's worth was judged on their take-home salary.

If you're not having fun it's not worth doing.
Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err.
Antique things have an appreciation and worth. Something can be old, but it can be timeless; therefore, it becomes an antique. If this antique is preserved and deemed precious, it could be passed down as a family heirloom.
Life is filigree work. What is written clearly is not worth much, it's the transparency that counts.

Dita Von Teese
You may get skinned knees and elbows, but it's worth it if you score a spectacular goal.

If I have any worth, it is to live my life for God so as to teach these peoples; even though some of them still look down on me.
However strong, however imposing a ship may appear, it is not 'disgraced' because it flies before the tempest. A commander ought always to remember that a man's life is worth more than the mere satisfaction of his own pride. In any case, to be obstinate is blameable, and to be wilful is dangerous.
C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
