When man lives under government, he is fallen, his worth is gone, and his nature tarnished.
The destructive character lives from the feeling, not that life is worth living, but that suicide is not worth the trouble.
I usually give a book 40 pages. If it doesn't grab me by then, adios. With young adult books, you can usually tell by Page 4 if it's worth the time.

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.
One of the lessons of leadership worth emphasizing is that you want to get to know other great leaders and take their advice. At some point in your development, it's only people who've been in the seat of having to be leaders who can help you in a deep way.
Jim Yong Kim
Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning.
It's not worth doing something unless you were doing something that someone, somewere, would much rather you weren't doing.

Sometimes it's easy to see the negative side of things or question why people bully you. You could think, 'Maybe they're right. Maybe I'm not worth it. Maybe I should just quit.' But that's when you should fight the hardest. Now I don't mean fight physically, but mentally. Keep being you.
If you're not having fun it's not worth doing.

Charles Caleb Colton
If it's a penny for your thoughts and you put in your two cents worth, then someone, somewhere is making a penny.
