Women are the only 'oppressed' group that is able to buy most of the $10 billion worth of cosmetics each year; the only oppressed group that spends more on high fashion, brand-name clothing than its oppressors; the only oppressed group that watches more TV.
One of the things we've always tried to do is help others with our story. Whether it's with the infertility issues, whether it's with the breast cancer, we said we're gonna turn these negatives into positives. And if we can help others by sharing our story, then it's worth it.
Things are worth what they will fetch at a sale.
I think hopefully we've got enough brain cells left to decide if our music is really worth something.
We know that without food we would die. Without fellowship, life is not worth living.
Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have.
Thomas A. Edison
I stand for simple justice, equal opportunity and human rights. The indispensable elements in a democratic society - and well worth fighting for.
It seems to me that trying to live without friends is like milking a bear to get cream for your morning coffee. It is a whole lot of trouble, and then not worth much after you get it.
Zora Neale Hurston
Most of the things worth doing in the world had been declared impossible before they were done.
Louis D. Brandeis
Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
Opera is complex for those who perform it, but also for those who listen to it. It takes more time, more patience and more spirit of sacrifice. All this is well worth it because opera offers such deep sensations that they will remain in a heart for a lifetime.
If you actually succeed in creating a utopia, you've created a world without conflict, in which everything is perfect. And if there's no conflict, there are no stories worth telling - or reading!
If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do things worth writing.
A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on.
If you want an accounting of your worth, count your friends.
Any goal worth achieving involves an element of risk.

Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.
G. M. Trevelyan
Against my will, in the course of my travels, the belief that everything worth knowing was known at Cambridge gradually wore off. In this respect my travels were very useful to me.
I wish more people felt that photography was an adventure the same as life itself and felt that their individual feelings were worth expressing. To me, that makes photography more exciting.
I have never known anyone worth a damn who wasn't irascible.
A graceful taunt is worth a thousand insults.
Some makeup companies have really good recycling policies, and it's worth finding out whether your favourites are among them. With MAC, for instance, you can take any of your old makeup containers into its shops, and the sweetest deal is that, once you've racked up six containers, you get a free lipstick or lip gloss.
That's why you can't be a true Yankee without winter: because all the best pleasures are earned - the fire, the fried oysters; the warmer seasons, too. Who knows the real worth of summer at the beach without a good taste of the seaside in winter?
