challenge

A Quote by William Barnes Rhodes on boredom, challenge, hunger, and thought

'Who dares this pair of boots displace, Must meet Bombastes face to face.' Thus do I challenge the human race. Bombastes: So have I heard on Afric's burning shore, A hungry lion give a grievous roar; The grievous roar echo'd along the shore. King: So have I heard on Afric's burning shore Another lion give a grievous roar, And the first lion thought the last a bore.

William Barnes Rhodes (1772 - 1826)

It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever - the one who recognizes the challenge and does something about it.

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on belief, camping, challenge, life, majorities, men, opportunity, reality, and victory

Most men in a concentration camp believed that the real opportunities of life had passed. Yet, in reality, there was an opportunity and a challenge. One could make a victory of those experiences, turning life into an inner triumph, or one could ignore the challenge and simply vegetate, as did a majority of the prisoners.

A Quote by Vernon Howard on challenge, facts, and feeling

An obvious fact about negative feelings is often overlooked. They are caused by us, not by exterior happenings. An outside event presents the challenge, but we react to it. So we must attend to the way we take things, not to the things themselves.

A Quote by unknown on challenge, difficulty, envy, nations, problems, strength, struggle, and world

In a world of envy and struggle and animosity, the united nations will continue to be confronted with difficult problems. But as it faces and meets each challenge it gains strength. If it surmounts the challenges it faces today, it will be stronger tomorrow, and the more able to tackle and perhaps solve what appear now to be insurmountable problems.

A Quote by unknown on challenge, justice, listening, and thought

Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells "CAN'T," but you don't listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper "can." And you discover that the person you thought you were is no match for the one you really are.

A Quote by unknown on adversity, challenge, darkness, day, good, life, loneliness, obstacles, peace, people, struggle, and words

No, life may not be easy, it can be lonely. Full of people we think we know, but barely comprehend. Yet we must always remember: it's the challenges that define us best, and the obstacles that illuminate what we're truly capable of. We must welcome adversity and embrace struggle, and no matter what we get from life, never give less than 100 percent. Of course, at the end of every battle weary day, we fold ourselves into peaceful darkness and find comfort in those gentle words . . . good night.

A Quote by unknown on challenge, family, jobs, kindness, murder, vices, and work

We're like a real family. Opinionated, argumentative, holding grudges, challenging each other. We challenge each other to be better than we are. That kind of thing doesn't happen at barbecues, at ball games, it happens on the job we're supposed to do. On the case. Put down the murder. The work itself is the most important thing. What we do is important. We speak for those that can no longer speak for themselves. And you're not gonna ever find anything like that anywhere. Not in vice, and not patrolling the grounds at Disneyland.
