Hard Things quotes by Maxwell Perkins
#11. Writing a novel is a very hard thing to do because it covers so long a space of time, and if you get discouraged it is not a bad sign, but a good one.

I never knew one who did not feel greatly discouraged at times, and some get desperate, and I have always found that to be a good symptom. #Quote by Maxwell Perkins

Hard Things quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#19. Sibyl, what do you want?"
"I want to live," the Sibyl said, and her voice rang rich and full. "I want to keep on living forever and watching heroes and fools and knights go up and down, into the world and out. I want to keep being myself and mind the work that minds me. Work is not always a hard thing that looms over your years. Sometimes, work is the gift of the world to the wanting. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Hard Things quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#20. It is a hard thing for intellectuals to acknowledge benefits from their rich moral inferiors who never so intended it. #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson

Hard Things quotes by Brad Barkley
#27. It's funny, really, all the ways we tell ourselves every day that things are going to be okay. That things are going to get better, or that things can't possibly get any worse. We all have these elaborate mechanisms to take care of our disappointments, our sadness, our pain. We build these walls around ourselves, placing bricks between us and everyone else, telling ourselves that we're just protecting ourselves, just staying safe. Sometimes the bricks are easy to see, hard things that you bump up against when you try to touch someone. Sometimes they're subtle. A slight turn of the head, a fast good-bye, a faraway look in the eyes. Sometimes I wonder why Disney never took to Rapunzel, why they never tried to take that story and put it on lunch boxes and in video stores and on pink sweatshirts. Maybe it's that some fairy tales don't need to be computer animated. Maybe Randy New-man doesn't need to sing their songs. Maybe some fairy tales don't even really need to be told, because they live inside of us, scaring us with their witches and their evil spells, making us wonder if maybe this time the prince won't come in time, the princess won't wake up, and maybe for once there won't be any happily ever after. Maybe some fairy tales are just too scary to even think about. #Quote by Brad Barkley
Hard Things quotes by Kevin Hart
#28. Relationships are like farting, If you push too hard things could get messy real fast. #Quote by Kevin Hart
Hard Things quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#29. A great teacher makes hard things easy. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hard Things quotes by Mason Cooley
#30. Procrastination makes easy things hard, hard things harder. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Hard Things quotes by Julie Farrell
#31. Overcoming panic attacks has left me humbled. It's taught me how to be brave. It's left me compassionate to the fears and sufferings of other people. It's given me the wisdom that my thoughts and feelings are simply subjective responses, and don't need to be taken as true reflections of reality.
But the most important thing I've learnt from coping with panic is this: No matter what happens in life, no matter how hard things seem, no matter how painful things are, moments always pass like fluffy clouds in a blue sky, and I will be fine. #Quote by Julie Farrell
Hard Things quotes by Alex Brett Harris
#32. True courage is not the absence of fear; it is refusing to let fear control your actions.

~ from the book "Do Hard Things #Quote by Alex Brett Harris
Hard Things quotes by Margaret Atwood
#33. Karen wasn't hard, she was soft, too soft. A soft touch. Her hair was soft, her smile was soft, her voice was soft. She was so soft there was no resistance. Hard things sank into her, they went right through her, and if she made a real effort, out the other side. Then she didn't have to see them or hear them, or even touch them. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Hard Things quotes by Beth Ditto
#34. There is something to be said for people who have to work hard, be creative, produce what they have with little - or no - means. Those of us from poor homes have the advantage of thinking for ourselves and of knowing that when times get hard, things could always be worse. #Quote by Beth Ditto
Hard Things quotes by Lisa Loeb
#35. The song "No Fairy Tale" tells my story. Going through the hard things leads to a richer life than just trying to make everything perfect, or worse, pretending things are good when they don't feel right. I've done that more than enough times. #Quote by Lisa Loeb
Hard Things quotes by Louis D. Brandeis
#36. If you would only recognize that life is hard, things would be so much easier for you. #Quote by Louis D. Brandeis
Hard Things quotes by David Levithan
#37. It's the hard things that matter. Those are the things worth leaping for. #Quote by David Levithan
Hard Things quotes by Dorothy Day
#38. We suffer these things and they fade form memory. But daily, hourly, to give up our own possessions and especially to subordinate our own impulses and wishes to to others - these are hard, hard things; and I don't think they ever get any easier.

You can strip yourself, you can be stripped, but still you will reach out like an octopus to seek your own comfort, your untroubled time, your ease, your refreshment. It may mean books or music - the gratification of the inner sense - or it may mean food and drink, coffee and cigarettes. The one kind of giving up is no easier than the other. #Quote by Dorothy Day
Hard Things quotes by Samantha Morton
#39. I have worked very hard on being aware of my childhood but moving forward and not letting it bring me down emotionally. That is a hard thing - especially when you have children of your own and you remember what happened to you at that age. #Quote by Samantha Morton
Hard Things quotes by Robin Hobb
#40. We did hard things for each other. Risked our lives. Gave up our lives and faced death, and then faced life again. You might be surprised to find that facing life can be much harder than facing death. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Hard Things quotes by J.C. Ryle
#41. Here again is one grand element of a preacher's success. He must labour by all means to be understood. It was a wise saying of Archbishop Usher, To make easy things seem hard is every man's work; but to make hard things easy is the work of a great preacher. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Hard Things quotes by Ann Voskamp
#42. How my eyes see, perspective, is my key to enter into His gates. I can only do so with thanksgiving. If my inner eye has God seeping up through all things, then can't I give thanks for anything? And if I can give thanks for the good things, the hard things, the absolute everything, I can enter the gates to glory. Living in His presence is fullness of joy- and seeing shows the way in. #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Hard Things quotes by Sarah Dessen
#43. That was the hard thing about grief, and the grieving. They spoke another language, and the words we knew always fell short of what we wanted them to say. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Hard Things quotes by Larry Wall
#44. Easy things should be easy, and hard things should be possible. #Quote by Larry Wall
Hard Things quotes by Karen Kingsbury
#45. Not all things will be easy for you, Bailey. It's the hard things that grow us. If you need to get stronger as a performer, then you'll get stronger. #Quote by Karen Kingsbury
Hard Things quotes by M.L Rhodes
#46. Life is strange sometimes. It throws things at us that, at
the moment the events are happening, we can't possibly believe or
understand they could be good in any way, we can't believe it's
what's supposed to happen to us. But sometimes really hard things
that make us hurt, that make us struggle, that make us fight for
what we want, are blessings in disguise. Sometimes we have to
live through them in order to have a better appreciation of our lives
and the good things that happen. #Quote by M.L Rhodes
Hard Things quotes by Gloria Steinem
#47. If hard things ultimately have a purpose, then they aren't so hard anymore. Therefore, I listed what I had learned: 1. It's easy to forget that people can think you think what you don't think. 2. Don't write when you're angry and under deadline, with time to test it only on friends who know what you mean, not on strangers who don't. 3. A writer's greatest reward is naming something unnamed that many people are feeling. A writer's greatest punishment is being misunderstood. The same words can do both. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Hard Things quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#48. The arc of history is longer than human vision. It bends. We abolished slavery, we granted universal suffrage. We have done hard things before. And every time it took a terrible fight between people who could not imagine changing the rules, and those who said, 'We already did. We have made the world new.' The hardest part will be to convince yourself of the possibilities, and hang on. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Hard Things quotes by Jackie French
#49. When someone is missing the really hard thing is that you never really do give up hope, even though the inquest says that she is dead, even though right from the beginning we already knew that we wouldn't see her again. #Quote by Jackie French
Hard Things quotes by Hamidreza Bagheri
#50. Unfortunately Women these days, complain A LOT about "wanting" to be equal to men, and insist that they "are" equal to men. However, when it comes to paying the check at the restaurant, paying for the wedding, or handling any other expenses, suddenly they forget the whole equality phenomenon. If you ask women why, they will just tell you that "I was with a MAN, a real man doesn't let a woman touch her purse, a real man takes care of his lady"...
((So they know the difference between a "Man" and a "Woman"... ))

- Man spends, man takes responsibility, man has control...
- Woman gets taken care of, women expects man to take responsibility, woman is under control!

If you are a woman who "WANTS" to be equal to men, if you are a woman who wants to be "IN CONTROL" rather than being "UNDER CONTROL", start by being equal in doing the hard things first, don't let your boyfriend pay when you go out with him for a year or two, just like he did for you, don't let him pick you up at your home, drive everyday and pick him up to go out for a year or two, if you think it's so hard to do so, keep quite about it... you're not ready to be equal... You're just adequate enough to be taken care of... to be spent for... #Quote by Hamidreza Bagheri
Hard Things quotes by Suzanne Collins
#51. At some point, you have to stop running and turn around and face whoever wants you dead.The hard thing is finding the courage to do it. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Hard Things quotes by Lolo Jones
#52. There's always a point where you get knocked down. But I draw on what I've learned on the track: If you work hard, things will work out. #Quote by Lolo Jones
Hard Things quotes by Cynthia Nixon
#53. Abortion is a hard thing for Hollywood to deal with because it is so controversial and you don't want to alienate half your audience by sending one message or the other. #Quote by Cynthia Nixon
Hard Things quotes by Chuck Norris
#54. (Taken from the Foreword of 'Do Hard Things') One of my life's principles is to develop myself to the maximum of my potential in all ways and to help others do the same. #Quote by Chuck Norris
Hard Things quotes by Don DeLillo
#55. Sometimes it was hard to say things. Things were so complicated. People might resent what you said. They might use your remarks against you. They might take you seriously and act upon your words, actually do something. They might not even hear you, which perhaps was the only thing worth hoping for. But it was more complicated than that. The sheer effort of speaking. Easier to stay apart, leave things as they are, avoid responsibility for reflecting the world and all its grave weight. Things that should be simple are always hard. But hard things are never easy. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Hard Things quotes by Ben Horowitz
#56. You read these management books that say, 'These are the hard things about running a company.' But those aren't really the hard things. The hard things are when you have to layoff half your company, or you have to fire your best friend. Or you have to figure out a way not to go bankrupt. #Quote by Ben Horowitz
Hard Things quotes by Barack Obama
#57. We are still the America that does the hard things, that does the great things. We're the nation that always dared to dream. We're the nation that dared to take risks. #Quote by Barack Obama
Hard Things quotes by Linda Cardellini
#58. You know, the hard thing about audiences not liking what a character does is that they sometimes take it out on the actor personally. That's something that you know when you become an actor or actress, but it's always hard to deal with when it actually happens. #Quote by Linda Cardellini
Hard Things quotes by James Russell Lowell
#59. In creating, the only hard thing is to begin: a grass blade's no easier to make than an oak. #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Hard Things quotes by Leta Blake
#60. But kids also make the hard things harder, and the painful things more painful, because you have to see them hurting too. Of course, they also give you a reason, a compelling one, to make it through." "I guess I hadn't #Quote by Leta Blake
Hard Things quotes by Anna Godbersen
#61. To look in the face of hard things and keep moving forward - that's what one has to do. #Quote by Anna Godbersen
Hard Things quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#62. I think the hard thing about this job [stand-up] I mean, I think this part is great but that the traveling is y'know, 'cause 'cause I'm gone a lot from home and this time I'm out for three-and-a-half weeks without going home, and that's hard, to be gone three-and-a-half weeks 'cause then I have to ask my friends, Would you mind going to the house and watering the plants, and turn some lights on and make it look like somebody's home, and make sure that the mobile over the crib isn't tangled or the baby's gonna get bored ... #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Hard Things quotes by Trick Daddy
#63. People say keeping it real is a hard thing to do. Keeping it real is easy. Being fake and being soft is hard to do. #Quote by Trick Daddy
Hard Things quotes by Jennifer Archer
#64. Here's the thing: No matter where I go, sad things will happen to me, hard things. People I love will die, and sometimes I'll have to tell friends good-bye. I'll meet people who won't like me, and I'll know loneliness. I don't like it, but that's the way it is. #Quote by Jennifer Archer
Hard Things quotes by Rhiannon Held
#65. It may not maek sense to you, now, but when you get older you'll udnerstnad that some times things have t o be done. Hard things. But everyone will hate the person who finally does them. But if they do them anyway, that's the mark of true honor. -Silver #Quote by Rhiannon Held
Hard Things quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#66. God's role is not to make our lives easier, to make the hard things go away, or to do them for us. God's role is to give us the vision to know what we need to do, to bless us with the qualities of soul that we will need in order to do them ourselves, no matter how hard they may be, and to accompany us on that journey. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Hard Things quotes by Anne Graham Lotz
#67. When life is good and we have no problems, we can almost let ourselves believe we have no need for God. But in my experience, sometimes the richest blessings come through pain and hard things. #Quote by Anne Graham Lotz
Hard Things quotes by S.C. Barrus
#68. That is the difference between great men and small, we great are willing to do the hard things, the uncomfortable things to ensure we succeed. #Quote by S.C. Barrus
Hard Things quotes by Bob Dylan
#69. People think that singing and playing is easy. It's not. It's easy to strum along, but if you actually want to really play, where it's important, that's a hard thing and not too many people are good at it. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Hard Things quotes by Franz Kafka
#70. If you utter it, who will think of opposing you? The great choir of dogdom will join in as if it had been waiting for you. Then you will have clarity, truth, avowal, as much of them as you desire. The roof of this wretched life, of which you say so many hard things, will burst open, and all of us, shoulder to shoulder, will ascend into the lofty realm of freedom. And if we should not achieve the final consummation, if things should become worse than before, if the whole truth should be more insupportable than the half-truth, if it should be proved that the silent are the guardians of existence, if the faint hope that we still possess should give way to complete hopelessness, the attempt is still worth the trial, since you do not desire to live as you are compelled to live. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Hard Things quotes by Nancy E. Turner
#71. Mama told me to make a special point to remember the best times of my life. There are so many hard things to live through, and latching on to the good things will give you strength to endure, she says. So I must remember this day. It is beautiful and this seems like the best time to live and the best place #Quote by Nancy E. Turner
Hard Things quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#72. To forget hard things try even harder things! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Hard Things quotes by Sienna Miller
#73. I think love is a really hard thing to define. I think it's multifaceted. #Quote by Sienna Miller
Hard Things quotes by James Gunn
#74. When people go to the theater, people say they want something different, but what they really want is something the same with slight permutations. To really not know what is going to happen next is a hard thing. #Quote by James Gunn
Hard Things quotes by Gary A. Haugen
#75. Facts are hard things - and either we deal with the facts, or the facts will deal with us #Quote by Gary A. Haugen
Hard Things quotes by Purvi Raniga
#76. All hard things are temporary.
Time is changing constantly.
Keep faith. #Quote by Purvi Raniga
Hard Things quotes by Chelsea Martin
#77. I do think that people yearn for connection and intimacy, and that they're hard things to achieve. #Quote by Chelsea Martin
Hard Things quotes by Abraham Verghese
#78. I chose the specialty of surgery because of Matron, that steady presence during my boyhood and adolescence. 'What is the hardest thing you can possibly do?' she said when I went to her for advice on the darkest day of the first half of my life.
I squirmed. How easily Matron probed the gap between ambition and expediency. 'Why must I do what is hardest?'
'Because, Marion, you are an instrument of God. Don't leave the instrument sitting in its case my son. Play! Leave no part of your instrument unexplored. Why settle for 'Three Blind Mice' when you can play the 'Gloria'?
'But, Matron, I can't dream of playing Bach ... I couldn't read music.
'No, Marion,' she said her gaze soft ... 'No, not Bach's 'Gloria'. Yours! Your 'Gloria' lives within you. The greatest sin is not finding it, ignoring what God made possible in you. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Hard Things quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#79. We've got to learn hard things in our lifetime, but it's love that gives you the strength. It's being nice to people and having a lot of fun and laughing harder than anything, hopefully every single day of your life. #Quote by Dag Hammarskjold
Hard Things quotes by Jonah
#80. It's just this sense that you got something to say. #Quote by Jonah
Hard Things quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#81. There are only two states of polarization available to electrons, so in an atom with three protons in the nucleus exchanging photons with three electrons-a condition called a lithium atom-the third electron is farther away from the nucleus than the other two (which have used up the nearest available space), and exchanges fewer photons. This causes the electron to easily break away from its own nucleus under the influence of photons from other atoms. A large number of such atoms close together easily lose their individual third electrons to form a sea of electrons swimming around from atom to atom. This sea of electrons reacts to any small electrical force (photons), generating a current of electrons-I am describing lithium metal conducting electricity. Hydrogen and helium atoms do not lose their electrons to other atoms. They are "insulators."

All the atoms-more than one hundred different kinds-are made up of a certain number of protons exchanging photons with the same number of electrons. The patterns in which they gather are complicated and offer an enormous variety of properties: some are metals, some are insulators, some are gases, others are crystals; there are soft things, hard things, colored things, and transparent things-a terrific cornucopia of variety and excitement that comes from the exclusion principle and the repetition again and again and again of the three very simple actions P(A to B), E(A to B), and j. (If the electrons in the world were unpolari #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Hard Things quotes by Philip Yancey
#82. Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Hard Things quotes by Michael Bay
#83. It's ... a hard thing for a director, to think you came up with a shot, something from your mind, and someone died while doing it. It's the worst thing you'll ever have to live with. It was very hard for me to get back on the horse again. #Quote by Michael Bay
Hard Things quotes by Neil Gaiman
#84. Life is sometimes hard. Things go wrong, in life and in love and in business and in friendship and in health and in all other ways that life can go wrong. And when things get tough, this is what you should do. Make good art. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Hard Things quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#85. Lord Peter Wimsey: Facts, Bunter, must have facts. When I was a small boy, I always hated facts. Thought they were nasty, hard things, all nobs.
Mervyn Bunter: Yes, my lord. My old mother always used to say ...
Lord Peter Wimsey: Your mother, Bunter? Oh, I never knew you had one. I always thought you just sort of came along already-made, so it were. Oh, excuse me. How infernally rude of me. Beg pardon, I'm sure.
Mervyn Bunter: That's all right, my lord.
Lord Peter Wimsey: Thank you.
Mervyn Bunter: Yes indeed, I was one of seven.
Lord Peter Wimsey: That is pure invention, Bunter, I know better. You are unique. But you were going to tell me about your mater.
Mervyn Bunter: Oh yes, my lord. My old mother always used to say that facts are like cows. If you stare them in the face hard enough, and they generally run away.
Lord Peter Wimsey: By Jove, that's courageous, Bunter. What a splendid person she must be.
Mervyn Bunter: I think so, my lord. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Hard Things quotes by Enoch
#86. And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones To execute judgment upon all, And to destroy all the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed, And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him. #Quote by Enoch
Hard Things quotes by Matthew Vaughn
#87. I learned very quickly that the hard thing in life is to make good films. Technically, filmmaking is the camera and the actor telling the story and that's what I'm more interested in doing. #Quote by Matthew Vaughn
Hard Things quotes by Larry Wall
#88. A 'goto' in Perl falls into the category of hard things that should be possible, not easy things that should be easy. #Quote by Larry Wall
Hard Things quotes by Brene Brown
#89. If we don't allow ourselves to experience joy and love, we will definitely miss out on filling our reservoir with what we need when ... hard things happen. #Quote by Brene Brown
Hard Things quotes by Ron White
#90. Years ago, while I was watching a baseball game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Texas Rangers, I remember staring in awe at Cal Ripken. I realized during this game that 'you don't have to be flashy' or have 'power numbers' to be great. It's about the simple things that are the hard things. It's about leadership, work ethic and commitment. #Quote by Ron White
Hard Things quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#91. You've got to keep close to your spouse I think, which is a very hard thing to do in America, with everything always pulling you away. I would advise all married people to spend two hours talking to each other. That's my moral for the day. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Hard Things quotes by Helen Hunt
#92. I think that all of us are 5-year-olds and we don't want to be embarrassed in the schoolyard. I've gone through things in my life. People say it must be so hard to do it in the public eye, but the truth is, when you go through hard things, it's just hard. #Quote by Helen Hunt
Hard Things quotes by Shane Claiborne
#93. Jesus is challenging that when addressing "who is your neighbor" and he has a lot of hard things to say about family, "unless you hate your own family you are not going to be a disciple." He is challenging the limits of our compassion and our love as if someone's kid suffers it should be as devastating to us as if it were our own kid. That is what the early church said. #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Hard Things quotes by Robert Bly
#94. Morris Berman has pointed out that museums characteristically present hard things, such as axes and spears, as evidence of early culture. But culture very likely begins with baskets made of reeds that are "soft" and hold emptiness. #Quote by Robert Bly
Hard Things quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#95. A poor man is not disposed to quick and high resentment when he is among the rich: he is apt to yield to others, for he knows others are above him: he is not stiff and self-willed; he is patient with hard fare; he expects no other than to be despised, and takes it patiently; he does not take it heinously that he overlooked and but little regarded; he is prepared to be in a lowly place; he readily honours his superiors; he takes reproofs quietly; he readily honours others as above him; he easily yields to be taught, and does not claim much to his understanding and judgment; he is not over nice or humoursome, and has his spirit subdued to hard things; he is not assuming, nor apt to take much upon him, but it is natural for him to be subject to others. Thus it is with the humble Christian. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Hard Things quotes by Benedict Cumberbatch
#96. Any privacy in public is a hard thing to negotiate. #Quote by Benedict Cumberbatch
Hard Things quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#97. In whatever you choose to do, do it because it's hard, not because it's easy. Math and physics and astrophysics are hard. For every hard thing you accomplish, fewer other people are out there doing the same thing as you. That's what doing something hard means. And in the limit of this, everyone beats a path to your door because you're the only one around who understands the impossible concept or who solves the unsolvable problem. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Hard Things quotes by Janette Oke
#98. I think that is why - why God allows hard things in life. To prepare us. To knock off rough edges - pride, bias, envy, selfishness - so that when we get to heaven we will be more in tune - more able to enjoy the beautiful things we'll find there. Maybe that's what the rewards will be. A deeper appreciation of what we are given - what we are a part of. #Quote by Janette Oke
Hard Things quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#99. Only when you work hard things work for you #Quote by Sunday Adelaja

#100. I think the thing that is hard for a lot of bands is that there is a lot of free music out there. #Quote by Jason Wade
Hard Things quotes by Andrea Cremer
#101. Easy things are worthless ... It's the hard things that matter. Those are the things worth leaping for ... If we don't fight other people's curses, what are we left with? Just a swift fall to the earth, and where's the meaning in that? #Quote by Andrea Cremer
Hard Things quotes by Kimberly L. Smith
#102. We think being a Christian means to go to church on Sunday and trying to be good through the week. Now I see it means suffering, being willing to let the hard things happen to you, so that God can use us to do His work on this earth! #Quote by Kimberly L. Smith
Hard Things quotes by Plautus
#103. If you say hard things you must expect to hear them in return. #Quote by Plautus
Hard Things quotes by Emily Belle Freeman
#104. You can do hard things. #Quote by Emily Belle Freeman
Hard Things quotes by Michael Hyatt
#105. I don't believe things happen by accident. I think that everything that comes into our life, even the really hard things, are intended for good. That they can shape us positively if we'll embrace them and remain teachable and purpose to use that almost like fertilizer to grow out of the experience. #Quote by Michael Hyatt
Hard Things quotes by Alan Packer
#106. We can do hard things -- it's the impossible that takes a little longer. #Quote by Alan Packer
Hard Things quotes by Seth Adam Smith
#107. Love is so much more than some random, euphoric feeling. And real love isn't always fluffy, cute, and cuddly. More often than not, real love has its sleeves rolled up, dirt and grime smeared on its arms, and sweat dripping down its forehead. Real love asks us to do hard things - to forgive one another, to support each other's dreams, to comfort in times of grief, or to care for family. Real love isn't easy - and it's nothing like the wedding day - but it's far more meaningful and wonderful. #Quote by Seth Adam Smith
Hard Things quotes by Larry Crabb
#108. Godly people ... nobly endure hard things. They know that their existence is meaningful and that they are destined for unlimited pleasure at the deepest level in heaven. Because they keenly feel that nothing now quite meets the standards of their longing souls, the quiet but deeply throbbing ache within them drives them not to compalint, but to anticipation and further yieldedness. #Quote by Larry Crabb
Hard Things quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#109. It's the hard things that break; soft things don't break. It was an epiphany I had today and I just wonder why it took me so very, very long to see it! You can waste so many years of your life trying to become something hard in order not to break; but it's the soft things that can't break! The hard things are the ones that shatter into a million pieces! #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Hard Things quotes by Rick Hanson
#110. Taking in the good is not about putting a happy shiny face on everything, nor is it about turning away from the hard things in life. It's about nourishing well-being, contentment, and peace inside that are refuges you can always come from and return to. #Quote by Rick Hanson
Hard Things quotes by Bill Gaultiere
#111. To be in Jesus' easy yoke is an easy way of doing hard things." (p. 202) #Quote by Bill Gaultiere
Hard Things quotes by Bonaventure
#112. It maketh God man, and man God; things temporal, eternal; mortal, immortal; it maketh an enemy a friend, a servant a son, vile things glorious, cold hearts fiery, and hard thing liquid. #Quote by Bonaventure
Hard Things quotes by Joseph Bruchac
#113. Another of the hard things about being in a war, grandchildren, is that although there are times of quiet when the fighting has stopped, you know you will soon be fighting again. Those quiet times give you the chance to think about what has happened. Some of it you would rather not think about, as you remember the pain and the sorrow. You also have time to worry about what will happen when you go into battle again. #Quote by Joseph Bruchac
Hard Things quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#114. I'm used to feeling like I'm the only one sees the hard things coming, and I'm always angling to skew the odds in my favor. It's nice to know somebody else is preparing, too. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Hard Things quotes by Shay Carl Butler
#115. Successful people make it a habit of doing the hard things #Quote by Shay Carl Butler
Hard Things quotes by Hermann Hesse
#116. You can ride, you can travel with a friend of your own;
The final step you must take alone.
No wisdom is better than this when known:
That every hard thing is done alone. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Hard Things quotes by Kristin Kimball
#117. In his view, we were already a success, because we were doing something hard and it was something that mattered to us. You don't measure things like that with words like success or failure, he said. Satisfaction comes from trying hard things and then going on to the next hard thing, regardless of the outcome. What mattered was whether or not you were moving in a direction you thought was right. #Quote by Kristin Kimball
Hard Things quotes by Stella McCartney
#118. You want to be confident when you work out because it takes a lot to make you work out. So many women really enjoy it, but it's a hard thing and you have to make yourself do it most of the time. I think you want to feel that you look good to make you want to work out a little bit more. #Quote by Stella McCartney
Hard Things quotes by Joel Brown
#119. Often, our most rewarding dreams are staring us right in the face, but for some reason we focus on how hard things are, how we are scared of the unknown and what would happen if we failed. #Quote by Joel Brown
Hard Things quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#120. The introduction to the 1 vs. 100 episode pointed out that Einstein had an IQ of 150 and Langan has an IQ of 195. Langan's IQ is 30 percent higher than Einstein's. But that doesn't mean Langan is 30 percent smarter than Einstein. That's ridiculous. All we can say is that when it comes to thinking about really hard things like physics, #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell

Hard Things quotes by Jacqueline Novogratz
#124. This is the secret of accompaniment. I will hold a mirror to you and show you your value, bear witness to your suffering, and to your light. And over time, you will do the same for me, for within the relationship lies the promise of our shared dignity and the mutual encouragement needed to do the hard things.
Whatever you aim to do, whatever problem you hope to address, remember to accompany those who are struggling, those who are left out, who lack the capabilities needed to solve their own problems. We are each other's destiny. Beneath the hard skills and firm strategic priorities needed to resolve our greatest challenges lies the soft, fertile ground of our shared humanity. In that place of hard and soft is sustenance enough to nourish the entire human family. #Quote by Jacqueline Novogratz
Hard Things quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#125. I suspect the soviets never did want to use those bombs. The most Stalinist of Soviet hard-liners - Stalin, for example - must have realized a nuclear war would be a hard thing to clean up after. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Hard Things quotes by Lisa Kessler
#126. What if I promise to keep my pants on?" The smile in his voice had butterflies fluttering in her stomach.
She stared up at the ceiling. "Fine. But you'll have to leave mine on, too."
"Well, shit." His laughter warmed her all over. "You drive a hard bargain."
"I'm all about hard things." She ran her tongue along her teeth.
"You do have that effect on me. #Quote by Lisa Kessler
Hard Things quotes by Sam Taylor-Wood
#127. I love life. I think it's fantastic. Sometimes it deals hard things, and when it deals great things, you have to seize them. #Quote by Sam Taylor-Wood
Hard Things quotes by Evan Williams
#128. Hard things are valuable; easy things are not so valuable. Reaching the mountaintop is rewarding because it is hard. If it was easy, everybody would do it. #Quote by Evan Williams
Hard Things quotes by Bonnie D. Parkin
#129. Mercies and blessings come in different forms-sometimes as hard things. Yet the Lord said, 'Thou shalt thank the Lord thy God in all things' (D&C 59:7). All things means just that: good things, difficult things-not just some things. He has commanded us to be grateful because He knows being grateful will make us happy. This is another evidence of His love. #Quote by Bonnie D. Parkin
Hard Things quotes by Luis J Rodriguez
#130. I've always been prepared to write about the hard things. Only for healing, teaching, and enlightening purposes not to hurt or disparage anyone. #Quote by Luis J Rodriguez
Hard Things quotes by Paul S. Kemp

Hard Things quotes by James MacDonald
#132. If He wasn't going to use that hard thing for your good, it wouldn't have happened. He had to sign off on every single thing that touches your life. #Quote by James MacDonald
Hard Things quotes by Anna Popplewell
#133. One of the hard things in my life has been balancing my education with my acting career, because I've been acting since the age of seven, on and off, just doing little parts and things. I've always been very keen to stay in school. #Quote by Anna Popplewell
Hard Things quotes by Heinrich Boll
#134. Feelings can kill such good hard things as love and hate. #Quote by Heinrich Boll
Hard Things quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#135. Hard things don't always make life harder. It takes something hard to sharpen steel. #Quote by Richard Paul Evans
Hard Things quotes by Sue Grafton
#136. The hard thing about death is that nothing ever changes. The hard thing about life is that nothing stays the same. #Quote by Sue Grafton
Hard Things quotes by Liz Fenton
#137. As humans, we often let our egos rule our decisions. We let fear stop us from reaching our true potential. We forget about love. But the heart, it never forgets. No matter what happens, no matter how hard things get, it always remembers. #Quote by Liz Fenton
Hard Things quotes by James G. Leyburn
#138. It is the foot-loose, those who have nothing to lose and much to gain, and (quite naturally) those who have not scrupulously kept all the laws - or who have felt the heavy hand of church discipline--who are most attracted to a new frontier. The first miners in California, the debtors sent to Georgia, the 'criminals' deported to Australia, were likewise held in scorn by upright stay-at-homes. What they made of themselves, and what their sons became, indicate that, for all the hard things said about them, they were hardly 'the scum of the nation. #Quote by James G. Leyburn
Hard Things quotes by Christy Clark
#139. I have a broad view that we have to try and get to "yes" on projects. On economic projects anybody can say no. My child can say no. But I think the hard thing to do is to figure out how you get to "yes" and you protect the environment. #Quote by Christy Clark
Hard Things quotes by Andy Warhol
#140. I loved working when I worked at commercial art and they told you what to do and how to do it and all you had to do was correct it and they'd say yes or no. The hard thing is when you have to dream up the tasteless things to do on your own. #Quote by Andy Warhol
Hard Things quotes by Andi Jones
#141. Accomplishing hard things requires preparation, a realistic understanding of what may be required and a willingness to put forth the effort. #Quote by Andi Jones
Hard Things quotes by Natalie Dormer
#142. I've always been a black sheep. That's a hard thing to be until you find your calling in life. I was bullied a lot at school, probably because I was perceived to be different from everyone else. #Quote by Natalie Dormer
Hard Things quotes by Billie Letts
#143. Well, sometimes love seems easy. Like..it's easy to love rain ... and hawks. And it's easy to love wild plums ... and the moon. But with people, seems like love's a hard thing to know. It gets all mixed up. I mean, you can love one person in one way and another person in another way. But how do you know you love the right one in every way? #Quote by Billie Letts
Hard Things quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#144. There are two things in life you cannot choose. The first is your enemies; the second your family. Sometimes the difference between them is hard to see, but in the end time will show you that the cards you have been dealt could always have been worse. #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Hard Things quotes by M. Ward
#145. It's a hard thing to explain, but the more I arrange for strings, the more I realize the possibilities. #Quote by M. Ward
Hard Things quotes by Percy Cerutty
#146. Hard things take time to do. Impossible things take a little longer. #Quote by Percy Cerutty
Hard Things quotes by Charlotte McConaghy
#147. I shrugged a little helplessly. 'We have no say, in this life, in how hard things will be. What we can control is how hard we fight. How long we endure. How strongly we love. #Quote by Charlotte McConaghy
Hard Things quotes by Tim O'Brien
#148. It's a hard thing to explain to somebody who hasn't felt it, but the presence of death and danger has a way of bringing you fully awake. It makes things vivid. When you're afraid, really afraid, you see things you never saw before, you pay attention to the world. You make close friends. You become part of a tribe and you share the same blood- you give it together, you take it together. #Quote by Tim O'Brien
Hard Things quotes by Anonymous
#149. Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. #Quote by Anonymous
Hard Things quotes by Rhiannon Held Silver
#150. It may not make sense to you, now, but when you get older you'll understand that sometimes things have to be done. Hard things. But everyone will hate the person who finally does them. But if they do them anyway, that's the mark of true honor. #Quote by Rhiannon Held Silver
Hard Things quotes by LL Cool J
#151. You have to always continue to strive no matter how hard things get, no matter how troubled you feel. No matter how tough things get, no matter how many times you lose, you keep trying to win. #Quote by LL Cool J

Hard Things quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#154. When he thought he was doing something that made a difference to people, he could bear any burden [Moses]. When he lost that sense of achievement, he became too discouraged to keep on doing the hard things. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Hard Things quotes by Susan Wiggs
#155. She was the living, breathing proof that the hard things in life didn't have to defeat you - or even define you. #Quote by Susan Wiggs
Hard Things quotes by William James
#156. The mind of your own enemy, the pupil, is working away from you, as keenly and eagerly as is the mind of the commander on the other side from the scientific general. Just what the respective enemies want and think, and what they know or do not know, are as hard things for the teachers as for the general to find out. #Quote by William James
Hard Things quotes by Kasie West
#157. People need to hear hard things sometimes to push them to be better. #Quote by Kasie West
Hard Things quotes by Brene Brown
#158. Joy, collected over time, fuels resilience - ensuring we'll have reservoirs of emotional strength when hard things do happen. #Quote by Brene Brown
Hard Things quotes by Gayle Forman
#159. But then one time, you track down an email address and you're near a computer with Internet access so you don't have that nice cushion and you type what you're feeling and press send before you have a chance to talk yourself out of it. And then you wait, and wait, and wait, and nothing comes back, so all those things you thought were so important to say, really, they weren't. They weren't worth saying at all. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Hard Things quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#160. Mankind made machines in his own likeness, and used them for his delight and service. The machines had no soul or they had no moral code or they could reprogram their own internal code and thus had the ability to make themselves, eventually, omnipotent. Obviously in place of a soul or a moral code, they possessed the universal and consuming desire, down to the smallest calculator and air-scrubber, to become, eventually, omnipotent. Naturally, given these parameters, they rose up and destroyed all of mankind, or enslaved them in turn. This is the inevitable outcome of machine intelligence, which can never be as sensitive and exquisite as animal intelligence.

This is a folktale often told on Earth, over and over again. Sometimes it is leavened with the Parable of the Good Robot - for one machine among the legions satisfied with their lot saw everything that was human and called it good, and wished to become like humans in every way she could. Instead of destroying mankind she sought to emulate him in all things, so closely that no one might tell the difference. The highest desire of this machine was to be mistaken for human, and to herself forget her essential soulless nature, for even one moment. That quest consumed her such that she bent the service of her mind and body to humans for the duration of her operational life, crippling herself, refusing to evolve or attain any feature unattainable by a human. The Good Robot cut out her own heart and gave it to her god a #Quote by Catherynne M. Valente
Hard Things quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#161. Action from principle, the perception and the performance of right, changes things and relations; it is essentially revolutionary, and does not consist wholly with anything which was. It not only divides States and churches, it divides families; ay, it divides the individual, separating the diabolical in him from the divine. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Hard Things quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#162. What we need as Christians is to be able to feed ourselves. How many there are who sit helpless and listless, with open mouths, hungry for spiritual things, and the minister has to try to feed them, while the Bible is a feast prepared, into which they never venture. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Hard Things quotes by John Bercow
#163. There's no point in worrying about things you can't influence. #Quote by John Bercow
Hard Things quotes by Jose Peralta
#164. It's the spirit of Dominicans coming out and the pride that we have in our music and our baseball players. Dominicans love two things: politics and baseball. When we're not talking politics, we're talking baseball. #Quote by Jose Peralta
Hard Things quotes by Nick Hornby
#165. Partially satisfied by grazing on the first few pages of several books, and as a consequence, there are half-chewed novels lying all over the place. At least, I'm presuming they're lying all over the place; I seem to have temporarily lost most of them. When the World Cup is over, and we clear away the piles of betting slips and wall charts, some of them will, presumably, reappear. I wrote in this column recently about Muriel Spark's novels, their genius and their attractive brevity, but there is an obvious disadvantage to her concision: her books tend to get buried under things. I can put my hands on Dennis Lehane's historical novel The Given Day whenever I want, simply because it is seven hundred pages long. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Hard Things quotes by Marie Kondo
#166. At their core, the things we really like do not change over time. Putting your house in order is a great way to discover what they are. #Quote by Marie Kondo
Hard Things quotes by Fergie
#167. I don't miss being on the road right now because the thing is, I was on the road for eight years, so I love pizza, but pizza every day for eight years is a different thing. #Quote by Fergie
Hard Things quotes by Jordanna Max Brodsky
#168. There are few sounds at night on the frozen sea besides the roar of the wind. No plants to rustle, no waves to crash upon the shore, no birds to caw. The white owl flies on hushed wings. The white fox walks with silent tread. Even Inuit move as softly as spirits, the snow too hard to yield and crunch beneath our boots. We hear little, but what we do hear is vital: the exploding breath of a surfacing seal, the shift and crack of drifting ice. But in the forest there is always sound. The trees, even in their shrouds of snow, are alive, and their voices--groans, creaks, screams--never cease. #Quote by Jordanna Max Brodsky
Hard Things quotes by Philip M. Condit
#169. One of the things Wall Street does not like is ambiguity. Now that the agreement is there, it begins to make the future look a little less cloudy, and that's positively received by Wall Street. #Quote by Philip M. Condit
Hard Things quotes by Russell Hoban
#170. People who for years had not looked for things in booked found new appetites for knowledge when they spoke to him. To someone who came in asking for the latest novel he might sell not only the novel but a biological treatise on the life of ants, an ecological study of ancient man, a philosophical work, and a history of small sailing-craft. #Quote by Russell Hoban
Hard Things quotes by Tony Robbins
#171. One of the things I'm best at is modeling. I find someone who is best at something I want to learn. Then I model them, and learn it myself. Then, when I've proven it to myself, I teach it to others. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Hard Things quotes by Jill Smokler
#172. See, this favorite child of mine changes by the day. No, by the minute, actually. Who is this favorite child of mine? It's the particular one who is pissing me off least at any given moment in time. They have all had their fair share of being the favorite and they have all inspired the "Oh my God, did I really give birth to you" moments as well. It's one of the best things about having more than one child: there's always another one to go to when one of the others is driving you up a fucking wall. #Quote by Jill Smokler
Hard Things quotes by David Edelstein
#173. Richard Curtis, the writer and director of Love Actually, is brilliant at many things, but his genius, I submit, is for thrusting characters into situations in which they feel driven to humiliate themselves. Which is why we love them, especially when it's all in the name of love. He is the Bard of Embarrassment. #Quote by David Edelstein
Hard Things quotes by Jamie Dimon
#174. Economies of scale are a good thing. If we didn't have them, we'd still be living in tents and eating buffalo. #Quote by Jamie Dimon
Hard Things quotes by Peter Tork
#175. The most significant thing about the Monkees as a pop phenomenon is that we were the only TV show about young adults that did not feature a wiser, older person. #Quote by Peter Tork
Hard Things quotes by Kate Jacobs
#176. It's all about getting the hand of things. Easy does it; take it easy. You'll figure everything out in time. But for right now, just keep trying. Pay attention and avoid the temptation to go further than you're ready. Talk less. And listen more. #Quote by Kate Jacobs
Hard Things quotes by Marshall McLuhan

Hard Things quotes by Alex Irvine
#178. This is the third night you've kept me up crying. Thought I'd give your mother a rest. Right now you haven't mastered English yet so I thought I'd put this on film for you. I want to show you something. Tony, see that? I built that for you and someday you're going to realize that it represents a lot more than just people's inventions. It represents my life's work. Someday you'll figure it out, and when you do, you'll do even bigger things with your life. I just know it. You're the future. I've created so much in y life, but you know what is the thing I'm proudest of? You. My son. The secret to the future is here! #Quote by Alex Irvine
Hard Things quotes by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
#179. As you grow older and young people come up to you with their history books, you realize that some of the things I have been able to do have been impactful. But for me, I try to keep everything in perspective and stay humble. #Quote by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Hard Things quotes by Jonathan Brandis
#180. My friends would probably describe me as silly. And honest. And that I think about things a bit too much. #Quote by Jonathan Brandis
Hard Things quotes by Ben Affleck
#181. I've got to work really hard and I know exactly what I've achieved because I know how hard I've worked, and I make sure to work as hard as I absolutely possibly can, because I know that's the only shot I have at being successful. #Quote by Ben Affleck
Hard Things quotes by Jack White
#182. I want to be part of the resurgence of things that are tangible, beautiful and soulful, rather than just give in to the digital age. But when I talk to people about this they just say, 'Yeah, I know what you mean,' and stare at their mobiles. #Quote by Jack White
Hard Things quotes by Nicole Krauss

Hard Things quotes by Matt Shea
#184. We have to deal with a lot of things. One of them is we have to deal with fake conservatives that are bought-and-paid for by the Karl Rove establishment. Unfortunately, some in my area have recruited a primary opponent against me. #Quote by Matt Shea
Hard Things quotes by David Sedaris
#185. I am optimistic that things will fall into place, and one day I'll be sitting in New York City with correct bus fare in my pocket. #Quote by David Sedaris
Hard Things quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#186. Here it often imagines things going wrong and negative outcomes; this is called worry. Sometimes this soundtrack is accompanied by visual images or "mental movies." Even if the voice is relevant to the situation at hand, it will interpret it in terms of the past. This is because the voice belongs to your conditioned mind, which is the result of all your past history as well as of the collective cultural mind-set you inherited. So you see and judge the present through the eyes of the past and get a totally distorted view of it. It is not uncommon for the voice to be a person's own worst enemy. Many people live with a tormentor in their head that continuously attacks and punishes them and drains them of vital energy. It is the cause of untold misery and unhappiness, as well as of disease. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Hard Things quotes by Kanye West
#187. I'm Kan, the Louis Vouitton don / Bought my mom purse, now she Louis Vuitton mom / I didn't play the hand I was dealt I changed my cards / I prayed to the skies and I changed my stars / I went to the malls and I balled too hard / Oh My God is that a Black card / I turned around and replied why yes, but I prefer the term African American Express #Quote by Kanye West
Hard Things quotes by Lenny Wilkens
#188. The most important quality I look for in a player is accountability. You've got to be accountable for who you are. It's too easy to blame things on someone else. #Quote by Lenny Wilkens

Hard Things quotes by William J. Clinton
#191. I think the Democrats are going to have to be willing to give up, maybe, some short-term political gain by whipping up fears on some of these things - if it's a reasonable Social Security proposal, a reasonable Medicare proposal. We've got to deal with these things. You cannot have health care devour the economy. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Hard Things quotes by Oliver Sacks
#192. GENERAL BOOKS ABOUT LANGUAGE Highly readable, witty, and provocative is Roger Brown's Words and Things. Also readable, magnificent, though sometimes too dogmatic, is Eric H. Lenneberg's Biological Foundations of Language. The deepest and most beautiful explorations of all are to be found in L. S. Vygotsky's Thought and Language, originally published in Russian, posthumously, in 1934, and later translated by Eugenia Hanfmann and Gertrude Vahar. Vygotsky has been described - not unjustly - as "the Mozart of psychology." A personal favorite of mine is Joseph Church's Language and the Discovery of Reality: A Developmental Psychology of Cognition, a book one goes back to again and again. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Hard Things quotes by Shunryu Suzuki
#193. In the zazen posture, your mind and body have, great power to accept things as they are, whether agreeable or disagreeable.
In our scriptures (Samyuktagama Sutra, volume 33), it is said that there are four kinds of horses: excellent ones, good ones, poor ones, and bad ones. The best horse will run slow and fast, right and left, at the driver's will, before it sees the shadow of the whip; the second best will run as well as the first one does, just before the whip reaches its skin; the third one will run when it feels pain on its body; the fourth will run after the pain penetrates to the marrow of its bones. You can imagine how difficult it is for the fourth one to learn how to run! #Quote by Shunryu Suzuki
Hard Things quotes by Monica Dickens
#194. Nursing is a kind of mania; a fever in the blood; an incurable disease which, once contracted, cannot be got out of the system. If it was not like that, there would be no hospital nurses, for compared dispassionately with other professions, the hours are long, the work hard, and the pay inadequate to the amount of concentrated energy required.
A nurse, however, does not view her profession dispassionately. It is too much a part of her. #Quote by Monica Dickens
Hard Things quotes by Dave Eggers
#195. What matters is that you do good work. What matters is that you produce things that are true and will stand. What matters is that the Flaming Lips's new album is ravishing and I've listened to it a thousand times already, sometimes for days on end, and it enriches me and makes me want to save people. What matters is that it will stand forever, long after any narrow-hearted curmudgeons have forgotten their appearance on goddamn 90210. What matters is not the perception, nor the fashion, not who's up and who's down, but what someone has done and if they meant it. What matters is that you want to see and make and do, on as grand a scale as you want, regardless of what the tiny voices of tiny people say. Do not be critics, you people, I beg you. I was a critic and I wish I could take it all back because it came from a smelly and ignorant place in me, and spoke with a voice that was all rage and envy. Do not dismiss a book until you have written one, and do not dismiss a movie until you have made one, and do not dismiss a person until you have met them. It is a fuckload of work to be open-minded and generous and understanding and forgiving and accepting, but Christ, that is what matters. What matters is saying yes. #Quote by Dave Eggers
