J.K. Rowling
“We're all human, aren't we? Every human life is worth the same, and worth saving.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Stewart O'Nan
“You couldn't relive your life, skipping the awful parts, without losing what made it worthwhile. You had to accept it as a whole--like the world, or the person you loved.”
Stewart O'Nan, The Odds: A Love Story

Arthur Schopenhauer
“Mostly it is loss which teaches us about the worth of things.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena

Sarah Dessen
“It shouldn't be easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It's the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something's difficult to come by, you'll do that much more to make sure it's even harder―or impossible―to lose.”
Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

Steve Jobs
“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”
Steve Jobs

Yevgeny Zamyatin
“A man is like a novel: until the very last page you don't know how it will end. Otherwise it wouldn't be worth reading.”
Yevgeny Zamyatin, We

Jarod Kintz
“The year you were born marks only your entry into the world. Other years where you prove your worth, they are the ones worth celebrating.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible

Criss Jami
“It often occurs that pride and selfishness are muddled with strength and independence. They are neither equal nor similar; in fact, they are polar opposites. A coward may be so cowardly that he masks his weakness with some false personification of power. He is afraid to love and to be loved because love tends to strip bare all emotional barricades. Without love, strength and independence are prone to losing every bit of their worth; they become nothing more than a fearful, intimidated, empty tent lost somewhere in the desert of self.”
Criss Jami

Jarod Kintz
“Is a picture really worth a thousand words? What thousand words? A thousand words from a lunatic, or a thousand words from Nietzsche? Actually, Nietzsche was a lunatic, but you see my point. What about a thousand words from a rambler vs. 500 words from Mark Twain? He could say the same thing quicker and with more force than almost any other writer. One thousand words from Ginsberg are not even worth one from Wilde. It’s wild to declare the equivalency of any picture with any army of 1,000 words. Words from a writer like Wordsworth make you appreciate what words are worth.”
Jarod Kintz, This is the best book I've ever written, and it still sucks

Louisa May Alcott
“Be worthy love, and love will come.”
Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Criss Jami
“Good works is giving to the poor and the helpless, but divine works is showing them their worth to the One who matters.”
Criss Jami

Shannon L. Alder
“If a man, who says he loves you, won’t tell you the details of a private conversation between him and another woman you can be sure he is not protecting your heart. He is protecting himself and the women he has feelings for. Wise women simply see things as they are, not as their low self-esteem allows.”
Shannon L. Alder

Sarah Dessen
“Maybe the truth was, it shouldn't be so easy to be amazing. Then everything would be. It's the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth. When something's difficult to come by, you'll do that much more to make sure it's even harder--if not impossible--to lose.”
Sarah Dessen, Along for the Ride

Vera Nazarian
“A fine glass vase goes from treasure to trash, the moment it is broken. Fortunately, something else happens to you and me. Pick up your pieces. Then, help me gather mine.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Criss Jami
“Every job from the heart is, ultimately, of equal value. The nurse injects the syringe; the writer slides the pen; the farmer plows the dirt; the comedian draws the laughter. Monetary income is the perfect deceiver of a man's true worth.”
Criss Jami

“Low self-esteem causes me to believe that I have so little worth that my response does not matter. With repentance, however, I understand that being worth so much to God is why my response is so important. Repentance is remedial work to mend our minds and hearts, which get bent by sin.”
John Ortberg Jr., The Me I Want to Be: Becoming God's Best Version of You

Greta Garbo
“I'm a completely worthless woman and no man should risk his life for me.”
Greta Garbo

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Even though human life may be the most precious thing on earth, we always behave as if there were something of higher value than human life.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Night Flight

Alexander Pope
“Beauties in vain their pretty eyes may roll;
Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.”
Alexander Pope, The Rape of the Lock

Lev Grossman
“Though the funny thing about never being asked for anything is that after a while you start to feel like maybe you don’t have anything worth giving.”
Lev Grossman, The Magician King

Moderata Fonte
“[M]en, though they know full well how much women are worth and how great the benefits we bring them, nonetheless seek to destroy us out of envy for our merits. It's just like the crow, when it produces white nestlings: it is so stricken by envy, knowing how black it is itself, that it kills its own offspring out of pique.”
Moderata Fonte, The Worth of Women: Wherein Is Clearly Revealed Their Nobility and Their Superiority to Men

Mandy Hale
“Someone out there is looking for exactly what you've got…and will never try and undercut your value or question your worth. Some things in life just can’t be bartered over or placed on the sale rack – and your self-worth is at the top of the list.”
Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

Michael Bassey Johnson
“People would walk in and walk out of your life, but the one whose footstep made a long lasting impression is the one you should never allow to walk out.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

Ayn Rand
“Degrees of ability vary, but the basic principle remains the same: the degree of a man's independence, initiative and personal love for his work determines his talent as a worker and his worth as a man. Independence is the only gauge of human virtue and value. What a man is and makes of himself; not what he has or hasn't done for others. There is no substitute for personal dignity. There is no standard of personal dignity except independence.”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Shannon L. Alder

Shannon L. Alder

Jeanette Winterson
“Sometimes I think of you and I feel giddy. Memory makes me lightheaded, drunk on champagne. All the things we did. And if anyone has said this was the price I would have agreed to pay it. That surprises me; that with the hurt and the mess comes a shift of recognition. It was worth it. Love is worth it.”
Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

Criss Jami
“God favors men and women who delight in being made worthy of happiness before the happiness itself.”
Criss Jami

Charles Martin
“He picked up one of Lorna's roses and set it in my lap. "Here." I picked it up and smelled it. He poked me in the shoulder. "See what I mean? Thorns don't stop you from sniffing. Or putting them in a vase on the kitchen table. You work around them.... Cause the rose is worth it... Think what you'd miss.”
Charles Martin, Chasing Fireflies

Criss Jami
“The challenge of abating one with a genuine ego problem is to not try to put him down. Any and all antagonization, in his mind, is merely compensated for by his own descriptions: his feelings of persecution by the envious and his ideals of worth. Arguably, the genuine ego is more of a circumstantial defense mechanism rather than a steady arrogance in need of starvation.”
Criss Jami, Diotima, Battery, Electric Personality
