Rosamund Lupton
The past may not hurt you, but it won’t challenge you, either.

Jimmy Hoffa

Valerie Martin was my mentor in college and she liked fiction that said something. That made it essential to have something to say. This seems obvious, but it’s not. And she’s taken on a wide range of subject matter: each book poses new challenges, and that’s something I think about when I’m embarking on a project.
Sabina Murray
In a certain sense, these were lessons I learned by playing with Indian musicians. The rhythmic forms that they use are very complex, and very challenging.

Barack Obama
I was actually quite surprised how many more mythologies there are about mermaids than the ones our society knows. I was so pleasantly surprised for ‘Siren’ to add quite an original idea to that: One that is a predator. One that is very intelligent but still has to survive in the ocean with all of its challenges.
Eline Powell
Music education can help spark a child’s imagination or ignite a lifetime of passion. When you provide a child with new worlds to explore and challenges to tackle, the possibilities are endless. Music education should not be a privilege for a lucky few, it should be a part of every child’s world of possiblity.

Examine the opportunities, the challenges you’ve given yourself.
Michael Johnson
It’s funny because being comedic and happy and lighthearted is who I am as a person, so they’re easier emotions for me to connect with. The challenge is accessing pain, angst, depression. . . It’s more exciting because it gives me somewhere to go and allows me to tap into a part of myself that everyone can relate to.
Lindsay Lohan
There are those who struggle every day with challenges. Let us extend to them our concern, as well as a helping hand. As we care for each other, we will be blessed.
Thomas S. Monson
I don’t live under the burden of worries. Problems and challenges are there, you can’t deny that. But you must challenge the challenges and not let the challenges turn into worries.
Narendra Modi
Once you have made it, you will understand that any business is limited in the challenges it offers. You will want and need other games to play, so you will look for other ventures to hold your interest.
J. Paul Getty
For a lot of young girls, the mediaВ frenzyВ and the social media challenges becomes so overwhelming that maybe they don’t go to inner beauty or inner strengthIf you don’t haveВ a positive roll modelВ in your life then it’s about finding people around you that can be that message bearer.
Julie Foudy
A good problem should be more than a mere exercise; it should be challenging and not too easily solved by the student, and it should require some “dreaming” time.
Howard Whitley Eves
Why do people resist [engines, bridges, and cities] so? They are symbols and products of the imagination, which is the force that ensures justice and historical momentum in an imperfect world, because without imagination we would not have the wherewithal to challenge certainty, and we could never rise above ourselves.
Mark Helprin
I had challenges to overcome as a child, and that was good.
John Caudwell
It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever – the one who recognizes the challenges and does something about it.
Vince Lombardi
You’ll fail at some things, that’s a learning experience that you need so that you can take that on to the next experience… What you learn from those challenges and those failures are what will get you past the next ones… I was the pretty consistent bull and the cheerleader on eBay actually.
Pierre Omidyar
I also believe that it’s almost impossible for people to change alone. We need to join with others who will push us in our thinking and challenge us to do things we didn’t believe ourselves capable of.
Frances Moore LappГ©
Matching sounds in your head is made a lot easier with all the technology. It is the nonelectronic noises that are challenging, as you have to find ways of communicating those to the people you’re working with.
Scott Walker
It’s important to say that the more challenging a scene is, in a way, the more fun it is because the more of my job I get to do.
Daniel Radcliffe
Some consider the puzzles that are created by their omissions as spicy challenges, without which their texts would be boring; others shun clarity lest their work is considered trivial.
Edsger Dijkstra
Obviously, there is much similarity among the challenges of transgender people and all women – from health care to harassment to discrimination in the workplace.
Gloria Steinem
I love the challenge.
Nancy Lopez
Big part of the challenge to innovation is that people too easily resign themselves to dying.
Peter Thiel
No matter what’s happening in the Middle East – the Arab Spring, et cetera, the economic challenges, high rates of unemployment – the emotional, critical issue is always the Israeli-Palestinian one.
Abdallah II
Challenging the meaning of life is the truest expression of the state of being human.
Viktor E. Frankl
I think “MythBusters” is a step up from special effects because we not only have to make things look like they work, they actually do have to work. It’s more challenging and even transcendental.
Jamie Hyneman
To face a man in combat is challenge enough. To find the goddess in a woman is the life work of a man. Hard though the first may be, the second is the harder longer road. But every man seeks the woman of the dream, and only the best of men finds what he seeks.
Rosalind Miles
I’m still an artist who’s searching, trying to evolve, an artist who – nine times out of ten – is dissatisfied with her work, and beats herself, and goes out there and tries again and again, and falls on her face and looks for new challenges.
Audra McDonald
Challenges are the key in life. You always have to challenge yourself and try to get to different states.
Goals live on the other side of obstacles and challenges. Be relentless in pursuit of those goals, especially in the face of obstacles. Along the way, make no excuses and place no blame.
Ray Bourque
For anyone going through a divorce or any other painful challenge, the first and most important recommendation I can make is to find some kind of spiritual and emotional support.
Alana Stewart
Everything that you do is a challenge. And acting is just building up your concentration and being able to listen and to do the ridiculous.
Clint Eastwood
The challenge was the opportunity. When I read the first draft of Steve Kloves’ fabulous adaptation – I hadn’t read [Michael] Chabon’s book at that time – what I was immediately captivated by was this group of characters that were at once so engaging and so messed up.
Curtis Hanson
The biggest lesson we took was when Werner [Herzog] said in a meeting with us that the mother of all challenges is to get your film seen in theater. To finally share this film has been so gratifying. The way audiences have responded, too.
Sam Pressman
I have always felt one of the things dance should do – its business being so clearly physical – is challenge the culture’s gender stereotypes.
Twyla Tharp
That is the key challenge facing management today; change is the only constant.
Warren G. Bennis
You will be wounded many times in your life. You’ll make mistakes. Some people will call them failures but I have learned that failure is really God’s way of saying, “Excuse me, you’re moving in the wrong direction.” It’s just an experience, just an experience.
Oprah Winfrey
If you take every challenge everyone has in their life and multiply it in severity you get what it’s like in the life of an actor.
Dee Wallace
The challenges presented by our budget crisis are some of the most difficult we have ever faced. We are – very simply put -adjusting to reality. These times, and our citizens, demand change.
Kathleen Blanco
One of the greatest gifts my father gave me – unintentionally – was witnessing the courage with which he bore adversity. We had a bit of a rollercoaster life with some really challenging financial periods. He was always unshaken, completely tranquil, the same ebullient, laughing, jovial man.
Ben Okri
Nobody talks of entrepreneurship as survival, but that’s exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking.
Anita Roddick
Block by block, street by street, our city has the resources, the activism, and the ideas to meet these challenges if we act boldly and reshape what’s possible. After all, Boston was founded on a revolutionary promise: that things don’t have to be as they always have been.
Michelle Wu
If I have to, I will use one challenge after another to dismantle governmental operations that I consider violations of the Constitution.
Greg Abbott
I think that one of our most difficult international challenges is clearly climate change and making sure that the Paris agreement goes forward. While I think the international community understands that President Trump is not taking the same position as President Obama.
Gina McCarthy
I think you can challenge people, but you don’t want to break people down. But you’ve got to sometimes just pull them aside and say, you know, you’re OK but you could be better.
Pat Summitt
For perpetrators, when they apologize and experience remorse, it gives them a chance to reclaim their own humanity. Some rise to the moral challenge. Others of course don’t care, and they continue acting with contempt.
Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela
Life’s biggest rewards come from the biggest challenges
Greg Behrendt
I think it will be very challenging for someone who has not been in prominent public life in the age of Twitter to go out on the campaign trail.
Daniel Pfeiffer
The point of what I do is that it doesn’t really matter what a book or a story is as long it moves you, informs you, challenges you, entertains you, or changes you.
James Frey
The greatest challenge of the next 50 years, I believe, will be to create dignified work for everyone… not through handouts and charity, but through market forces.
Leila Janah
Like everyone else, I have challenges.
Carnie Wilson
The challenge of the retail business is the human condition.
Howard Schultz
With the frenzied pace in our own country, with the degenerating school system, with a crime rate that rises 30% a year, and with politicians that seem more interested in posturing than in governing, it has become more difficult, or should I say challenging, to achieve that inner symbiosis with life.
Frederick Lenz
Economics is (now) about emotion and psychology.
Robert J. Shiller
Because I had sought to challenge Destiny, Destiny had taken vengeance.
Michael Moorcock
The challenge is to translate the song into something that works on the stage. It’s pop music, but I try to keep it as loose as possible.
Tove Styrke
The first order of things to be changed is me, the leader. After I consider how hard it is to change myself, then I will understand the challenge of trying to change others. This is the ultimate test of leadership.
John C. Maxwell
Happiness is not the shallow state of feeling pleased and chipper all the time. Happiness is the state of a human being that has achieved cross-level coherence within herself, and between herself and the people, challenges, and institutions around her. Happiness comes from between.
Jonathan Haidt
What I read: while I’m writing, I tend to go off reading fiction for relaxation – especially the challenging stuff. It’s too much like the day job.
Charles Stross
It is living, not thinking, as a feminist that has become the challenge.
Rachel Cusk
Adversity challenges the masks we hide behind, revealing sides of ourselves we have not yet comfortably with the world outside. It is why we dislike adversity, because we have to face what we don’t yet understand about ourselves.
Michael Arndt
The answer to any challenge you are having has nothing to do with God’s willingness to help. It has to do with your acceptance of how the Infinite is already active within you, how it has already placed within you all that you need to solve and dissolve inner conflict through conscious communion with the Self.
Michael Beckwith
The biggest challenge I have is to learn when somebody doesn’t really mean what they’re saying ’cause I don’t say something I don’t mean. I live in Literalville.
Rush Limbaugh
In contemporary music, the challenge for me is to make the recorder sound as naturally expressive as, for example, the violin – without doing it too much and forcing the instrument. It is very easy to be overly expressive on the recorder, and finding the balance is quite difficult.
Michala Petri
We look forward, from what we heard from President-elect Trump, a clear vision related to the conditions and the challenges in the Middle East. And there’s a great deal of parallelity in that vision related to how we can eradicate terrorism, how we can regain stability in the region.
Sameh Shoukry
When there’s a disappointment, I don’t know if it’s the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure.
Pema Chodron
With films it’s not usually that I have a particular character I’m looking for; I’ll read the character and my imagination will start spinning and I’ll go, “Yes, definitely.” I’m thinking it would be nice to keep challenging myself.
Lydia Wilson
My businesses are usually built around challenging conventional wisdom, so I tend to gain by taking the other side. It’s been very profitable and entertaining for me
Mark Cuban
I think that if there’s some innovative entrepreneurs out there who can help teach people how they can cost-effectively help themselves and their planet, I think everybody would be for it. That’s going to be the challenge – figuring a way to get the marketplace and commerce to teach us consumers another way.
Ricky Schroder
SACERDOTALIST, n. One who holds the belief that a clergyman is a priest. Denial of this momentous doctrine is the hardest challenge that is now flung into the teeth of the Episcopalian church by the Neo-Dictionarians.
Ambrose Bierce
One of the fun things about being an actor is stepping outside yourself and outside of your own experience. It’s challenging yourself to totally commit to something that in your core is so wrong.
Jason Priestley
We are creatures that are designed for continual challenge. We must grow or we begin to die….So just standing still isn’t really an option. We have to move on. If not, disturbances will come.
B.K.S. Iyengar
It’s a bit much describing it as a moral challenge from a government that’s tripled the deficit and added $100 billion to net debt.
Tony Burke
…Competitive Skaters must be prepared for a lot of work, challenges, self-discipline, and motivation. The desire must be there, but more importantly, your love for the sport.
Oksana Baiul
Evolution is the phenomenon of change and the challenge of the next time cycle will involve the creation of constructs that will provide the kind of dynamic knowledge base that can assist the challenges of tomorrow (involving both fundamental and extended information).
Anthony Braxton
..Critically intervene in a way that challenges and changes.
Bell Hooks
The era of big government is over, but the era of big challenge is not. We need an era of big citizenship. There are many important people at this summit, but the most important title is ‘citizen.’ This is our republic. Let us keep it!
William J. Clinton
I’m a person who likes to tackle challenges. Google was a challenge when I got there. I think AOL’s a challenge. The way we run the company is a very team-focused environment.
Tim Armstrong
As artists, it’s our job to delve into the uncomfortable, the difficult and the challenging.
Jared Leto
I challenge you, me. Die or live and be great.
Alfred Bester
I look forward to the challenges.
Maria Sharapova
I appreciate my brother, His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the U.A.E. and Ruler of Dubai, and the Council of Ministers, who face every morning challenges, but plan and remove all obstacles to score achievements.
Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan
Imagining and visualising the situation prepares you for any challenge
Debra Searle
Is it possible to do something that that makes an audience uncomfortable, challenges them, makes them see things they’re not used to? Here in these films [Salome the play and Salomaybe], I have the opportunity to say something about how I feel about things.
Al Pacino
The beauty of being black in American society is that black has always been an inclusive definition. White has always been an exclusive definition. I think one of the challenges for white people is to figure out how to have a more inclusive picture of who their families are, of who they are.
Benjamin Jealous
Challenges cannot possibly be good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges.
Carlos Castaneda
There’s some things that you’re passionate about as a director. You just know it has to be a certain way. The challenge is resolving those so everyone is happy and no one feels that they have not been heard.
Ricky Schroder
A violent scene is art, as much as a sex scene is art. For me, all the scenes were a challenge.
Adele Exarchopoulos
Bank accounts for each household is a national priority for us. We need to rise to the occasion & successfully overcome this challenge.
Narendra Modi
Every day is an opportunity disguised as a challenge.
Tiki Barber
Some people are quick to challenge others but refuse to look in the mirror and challenge themselves.
Behdad Sami
Writing about unknown people means I spend a lot of time arguing to the reader about why it’s worth knowing about them. That’s challenging, but then the piece is pure discovery.
Susan Orlean
Our Parliamentary system has simply failed to meet the challenge of judicial activism.
Stockwell Day
My personal interest in ordinary people is unlimited, but I am fascinated by the challenge of portraying true greatness adequately with my camera.
Yousuf Karsh
one sank into the ancient sin of anomie when challenges failed.
Carolyn Heilbrun
What is the great fear of the United States? That an Eastern power will build a navy to challenge us. How do you keep them from doing that? Keep them at each other’s throats so they don’t have any money to do this. This is why we fought the First World War, the Second World War, and the Cold War.
George Friedman
The challenge when you think about product distribution is: how are you competing for potential customers or potential members time?
Reid Hoffman
In the same way that slavery was a moral challenge for the 19th century and totalitarianism was a challenge for the 20th century, the challenge that women and girls face around the world is the moral challenge of our time.
Sheryl WuDunn
I really like clever men who challenge you.
E. L. James
I think people who make movies and have invested a lot of money in them, get frightened that if they challenge an audience they are going to repel them. And I think the opposite it’s really true. It takes confidence and courage to know that and then commit to it.
Claire Danes
Confronting climate change is, in the long run, one of the greatest challenges that we face, and you can see this duty or responsibility laid down in scriptures, clearly.
John F. Kerry
Remember, life itself is a mission. While we are on the go, we need to stop between steps to re-focus on the Word and the Will of God. While we are on the go, I mean, while we are on the mission, we need to sometimes stop at intervals to assess our progress and prepare ourselves for the challenges ahead.
T. B. Joshua
I really appreciate crafts. I like cooking. I love food and drink. I love owning that through Instagram. Although that can be challenging at times because it doesn’t fit people’s stereotypes of a technical founder.
Kevin Systrom
I congratulate NUS for launching a new degree, a bachelor of environmental studies. This is a most timely initiative. One of the biggest challenges facing Asia is to reconcile Asia’s rapid economic development with care for the environment.
Tommy Koh
The greatest single challenge facing our globalised world is to combat and eradicate its disparities.
Nelson Mandela
I need to hear something about how he`s going to bring people together in the spirit, hopefully, of Martin Luther King Jr., and if that`s not heard, then we`ve got to constantly challenge him.
Al Sharpton
Whatever be the challenges, whatever be the obstacles before us, I say to you as I say to everybody else that we will overcome.
Ferdinand Marcos
I need something different [roles], always something just slightly different, that pushes you and challenges you.
Dominic Cooper
On my discharge, I had the challenge of putting my life back together but Vietnam stuck in the inner recesses of my mind.
Doug Rice
That is an extremely important role: how white brothers and sisters laterally spread knowledge, insight, and challenge in a way that white brothers and sisters will not hear it from a person like me, necessarily.
Michael Eric Dyson
What gets me excited by the process of making art is how unrelated elements get fused, which is a formal process. The content is the easy part. Putting it together in a way that’s cohesive is the challenge.
Jordan Wolfson
No single solution or actor can deal with the complex and interrelated challenges to electoral integrity arising from manipulated data, hate speech, and fake news. These phenomena are not new; they have been part of electoral cycles since the advent of democracy.
Kofi Annan
Making ourselves the solution, rather than part of the problem is our greatest challenge.
Arron Wood
I started designing and getting into cutting and sewing, I also started learning how to do patterns and tech packs. From there I transitioned from challenging myself to make T-shirts to starting to make custom pieces for celebrities.
Fred Foster
The one common experience of all humanity is the challenge of problems.
R. Buckminster Fuller
Self-mastery is a challenge for every individual. Only we can control our appetites and passions. Self-mastery cannot be bought by money or fame. It is the ultimate test of our character. It requires climbing out of the deep valleys of our lives and scaling our own Mount Everests.
James E. Faust
The challenge life presents to each of us is to become truly ourselves–not the self we have imagined or fantasized about, not the self that our friends want us to be, not the self our ego would have us be, but the self God has ordained us to be from before we were in our mother’s womb.
Matthew Kelly
But for me, the challenge is how you turn a character into behavior. Once the director says ‘action’, you just try to live between those two worlds.
Robert Duvall
If the constitution is not changed, then we will try to bring it down either before the referendum through the law by filing a suit in international or local courts, if we can, challenging the legitimacy of this constitution and the National Assembly.
Saleh al-Mutlaq
Doing something new and challenging. It can be anything from starting a business to playing a sport. Seeing a great concert, looking at extraordinary art, or being in nature. More than anything, it’s my son’s smile and love that makes me light up!
Amber Valletta
I have to say I’ve been lucky in that way in that I’ve been able to go from different films and different genres with different challenges.
Amy Adams
One of the best ways to convince someone is to use a telling example, a story, a narrative. When Steve Jobs announced a new product, he told a story, exzlaining how a product would change the world as we know it. He turned Apple into a story whose challenges and adventures you want to hear about.
Kabir Sehgal
Set goals that don’t feel all that easy, that challenge you, stimulate you, and give you a chance to stretch and push yourself. That is where the power of growth lies.
Nathaniel Branden
Age doesn’t matter. Obstacles don’t matter. Winning is the challenge. Bottom line, inspiring others is the goal.
Glenn Allison
For me… it was always about the challenge of making this voyage… It was always a calculated risk, but life is a risk.
Jessica Watson
Meditation helps you stay in a calm, clear-headed state so that when challenges come at you, you can deal with them like a ninja – in a calm thoughtful way. When you’re centered, your emotions are not hijacking you.
Ray Dalio
Do not feel discouraged by all the challenges and hardships you might face. I ask you not to forget that, like those who came here before you, you bring many gifts to this new nation of yours.
Pope Francis
Literacy is not a luxury, it is a right and a responsibility. If our world is to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century we must harness the energy and creativity of all our citizens.
William J. Clinton
None dare challenge me when i say i am an Afrikan.
Thabo Mbeki
The joy in motherhood comes in moments. There will be hard times and frustrating times, but amid the challenges there are shining moments of joy and satisfaction.
M. Russell Ballard
I think what you have to recognise is everybody has their own deal, and everybody has challenges. Do I think that it was easier for me because at a certain point in my career I didn’t have children? Yeah, I think absolutely so. But everybody has their own deal.
Beth Brooke
One should not withdraw from individuals and commit to the community what they can accomplish by their own enterprise and industry
Pope Pius XI
Hard times are really a fire under your ass to prioritize and think, “Okay, how can I challenge myself to put something in the world that wasn’t there that can reach other folks and help them to process?”
Morgan Parker
Transitions themselves are not the issue, but how well you respond to their challenges!
Jim George
Leadership is more than just managing economic reforms. Leadership means giving broad direction, take up challenges which other people cannot do.
Ajay Piramal
See every difficulty as a challenge, a stepping stone, and never be defeated by anything or anyone.
Eileen Caddy
I am 38 years old, and I want to live in Puerto Rico and I want to create a path forward for growth. I realize that have come at the most challenging times to become governor, but I want to push things forward.
Ricky Rossello
Climate change is probably the greatest long-term challenge facing the human race.
Tony Blair
Your art is what you do when no one can tell you exactly how to do it. Your art is the act of taking personal responsibility, challenging the status quo, and changing people.
Together with international unity and resolve we can meet the challenge of this global scourge and work to bring about an international law of zero tolerance for terrorism.
Manmohan Singh
I know the exploding cost of health care is at the root of our long-term fiscal challenges.
Fred Upton
As long as the decent people refuse to believe that morality must manifest itself in every sphere of human activity, including the political, they will not meet the challenge of Marxism.
Fulton J. Sheen
Brand planning must continue to paint a vivid description of the consumer today. The challenge is that it can feel like this picture changes daily. Planning’s job is to help separate the temporary shifts from foundational understanding that underpins overall behaviour.
James W. Moseley
Life is all about toiling and labor. But obviously I get great joy in confronting challenge and taking risk.
Sufjan Stevens
I’m an incurable optimist, and I’m a great believer in never looking back. Life is too short, and new challenges are exciting.
Cherie Blair
Avoiding risk is not much of a goal…whether you crawl into a hole or walk a high wire, nobody gets out of here alive. We cannot grow without challenge.
Steven Callahan
You’re always going to face criticism, you’re always going to face challenges, but those things are there to make you stronger and more committed.
David Robinson
As a reader I like both great characterization and fast moving plots. The challenge is to balance the both and not compromise one for the other.
Tobsha Learner
I’m still learning, but I can see there are decisions in life that are going to be very challenging and it’s always better to get through them, always.
Anthony Green
Trying to find my way around the Rayburn building is always a challenge. Combining my poor sense of direction with a confusing design is not good.
Gregg Harper
David Frankfurter’s valuable, well-written study takes us to the far reaches of demonology. In documenting the harm done by labeling others evil, he poses a challenge to those of us who believe, however regretfully, in the necessity of the concept.
Robert Jay Lifton
While I wholeheartedly believe in choosing to approach every challenge with a great attitude, I don’t mean that we should abandon authenticity and live in fantasyland.
Charles R. Swindoll
Climate change does not respect border; it does not respect who you are – rich and poor, small and big. Therefore, this is what we call ‘global challenges,’ which require global solidarity.
Ban Ki-moon
The movement that Jesus begins is constituted by people who believe that they have all the time in the world, made possible by God’s patience, to challenge the world’s impatient violence by cross and resurrection.
Stanley Hauerwas
Sometimes the darkest challenges, the most difficult lessons, hold the greatest gems of light.
Barbara Marciniak
The caricature of science is that we hold tight to the theories we have, and shun challenges to them. That’s just not true. In fact, we hold our highest rewards for those scientists who can prove others wrong. And by the way, they are famous in their own lifetimes. We don’t wait until they’re dead.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Adaptation is a vital part of a response to the challenge of climate change
Nicholas Stern
I think that the biggest challenge for me making films is how much of your life you give to something. Shooting the film requires 14-hour days, six days a week.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
This is about sending a very strong message that Scotland does want to stay in the European Union and we’re an open country, a good place to live, work, study and to do business and it’s really important as we take forward what will be challenging work ahead of us, that we send those messages.
Nicola Sturgeon
The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of like is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give.
William Arthur Ward
Democracy acknowledges the right to differ as well as the duty to settle differences peacefully. Authoritarian governments see criticism of their actions and doctrines as a challenge to combat.
Aung San Suu Kyi
The magic of playing live doesn’t go away. Of course there are some shows where your energy level is low, or the sound is bad, but part of the joy is the challenge to bring this energy and realize it despite the physical circumstances.
Laurel Halo
In Nonviolent Communication you will find an amazingly effective language for saying what’s on your mind and in your heart. Like so many essential and elegant systems, it’s simple on the surface, challenging to use in the heat of the moment and powerful in its results.
Vicki Robin
One of the big challenges for our party is to demonstrate to people that we have an agenda for economic prosperity and that we can be trusted with their money.
Birch Bayh
This is a time of great challenges for America, and I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation.
Mitt Romney
I’m not a parent, but it seems to me the nature of parenting is contingent, full of unexpected challenges – which is one of the wonderful and amazing things about it.
Stacey D’Erasmo
Now, we are seeing many of these same companies face the truth about their financial standing. Congress is faced with the challenge of reforming our accounting industry and holding corporate executives responsible for their actions.
Bennie Thompson
We’re at the point now where the challenge isn’t how to communicate effectively with e-mail; it’s ensuring that you spend your time on the e-mail that matters most.
Bill Gates
One of the challenges of secularism is that it’s not something outside us. In too many instances, secularism has so permeated the church that sometimes it’s the frame of reference even for very good people, people who have a strong allegiance to the church.
Donald Wuerl
Comedy has ceased to be a challenge to the mental processes. It has become a therapy of relaxation, a kind of tranquilizing drug.
James Thurber
The greatest challenge the church faces today is to be authentic disciples of Jesus.
Dallas Willard
I look back and I look at all the opportunities that I’ve had to work really hard and really challenge myself, and I like to do things that scare me. I like to do things that I don’t know if I’m going to be able to do. I need the help of talented people around me. I love that it’s a collaboration.
Hilary Swank
There is no single policy to which one can point and say – this built the Morris business. I should think I must have made not less than one thousand decisions in each of the last ten years. The success of a business is the result of the proportion of right decisions by the executive in charge.
William Morris
Some of the most challenging moves towards health are made with the simplest of steps and that is why I wrote The Start Here Diet.
Tosca Reno
It’s true that over-apologizing interrupts the flow of conversation and irritates the person who has to stop and offer reassurance, like, “No, it’s fine, don’t worry about it.” But far greater than the challenge of toning down unnecessary “sorrys” is offering an apology when one is due.
Harriet Lerner
I trust the [series] writers when I’m filming, because it’s interesting for me to go in every week and see what’s going to happen, and the challenge for me as the actor is to make it work.
John Barrowman
True character is revealedby the way people react to the bigger challenges in life.
Alyson Noel
I’m actually quite different when I’m there [ in the university] to how I am on a TV or film set. It’s very challenging and I really, really like it. And I enjoy being in that environment.
Yasmin Paige
being afraid to take chances is scarier than actually doing things that challenge you.
Simone Elkeles
When I was in graduate school, I became very interested in why some kids took on challenges and were able to bounce back from setbacks whereas others shy away from difficulty and really crumble when they hit failures. I became fascinated with people who had that kind of courage to take on challenges.
Carol S. Dweck
What keeps me level is the refusal to let the best of human aspirations die in the face of the challenges. I make a moral decision to be hopeful.
Alison Hawthorne Deming
The challenge and love, for me, of acting is if you get to transform or do something you haven’t done before. That’s fun.
Matt Ross
Parking Reform Made Easy provides both a theoretical framework and practical methods for reforming parking requirements. By giving planners a sound basis for developing reforms, Richard Willson remedies the problem that many planners feel unqualified to challenge and change long-standing minimum parking requirements.
Donald Shoup
I challenge you. Be obsessed with improvement!
Eric Thomas
It was enormously challenging because you want that all-American girl, but you also want the cool WASP, privileged white girl. Usually, women in that package aren’t funny.
Jenji Kohan
This is about an admitted attempt, encouraged from outside, to challenge and break the State’s authority. That is intolerable. Whoever deviates from this policy that I have established, privately or publicly, will be expelled from the Union Nationale.
Maurice Duplessis
AI can help solve some of the most difficult social and environmental challenges in areas like healthcare, disaster prediction, environmental conservation, agriculture, or cultural preservation.
Jeff Dean
My entire life, socially, was all around the Maggie era. That was the great challenge as a Sex Pistol was how to deal with Margaret Thatcher. I think we did rather good.
John Lydon
Well, if it can be thought, it can be done, a problem can be overcome.
E. A. Bucchianeri
For me to start working, projects have to catch my attention whether they are here (in the USA) or in Mexico. All I want is to be involved in projects that are interesting to me, projects that are a challenge wherever they may happen, in Spain, in China, or in Hollywood.
Kate del Castillo
In my opinion, the teaching, rearing, and training of children requires more intelligence, intuitive understanding, humility, strength, wisdom, spirituality, perseverance, and hard work than any other challenge we might have in life.
James E. Faust
I love adventure movies, I just love action adventure films. It’s pure cinema and you go in and you’re lost to it. To me, it’s that challenge – I want to give an audience that ride, that entertainment.
Tom Cruise
I was fortunate enough to win a Super Bowl before retiring, and in fact I retired immediately after winning the Super Bowl. I went out on top, and intend to come out of the Guinness Pro Challenge on top, too.
Jerome Bettis

Maxwell Maltz
I work all summer and throughout the whole season to be prepared for the challenges that I have to face.

You need to associate with people who inspire you,
people that challenge you to raise higher,
people that make you better.
Don’t waste your valuable time with people that are not adding to your growth.
Your destiny is too important.
Joel Osteen
We all experience doubts and fears as we approach new challenges. The fear diminishes with the confidence that comes from experience and faith. Sometimes you just have to go for it and see what happens. Jumping into the battle does not guarantee victory, but being afraid to try guarantees defeat
Brian Goodell
We’re a big check mark on everybody’s schedule. I told them it’s just another challenge; let’s go after it.
Dick Butkus
I think everyone shares a fear of failure – that you’re only as good as your most recent collection. That’s definitely a fear, but it’s a fear that fuels me, that makes me want to work harder, that makes me take on more challenges.
Alexander Wang
I cherish the dreams of yesterday and dare not dwell on the err’s of my past whose fate has been long decided, and effect I can not change. For the dreams of yesterday are the challenges of today, and the hope for tomorrow.

David Price

Dean Frazer
If government is inevitable, the challenge is to come up with the most effective one possible.
Robert H. Frank
I feel like I’m one of the many working mothers. And I only have one child. I know working mums who have three or four. It’s definitely a challenge but it’s a wonderful challenge to be able to do both.
Rachel Weisz
Obviously, being the CEO, there are a lot of eyes on what you do and what you post and how you post, and I think one of the challenges of Instagram in general is that, as we get bigger, there are just more voices in the room, more eyes on everyone’s accounts.
Kevin Systrom
I honesty feel that each film has its own particular challenges.
Alden Ehrenreich
Would you like to go to a doctor who had taken his last medical course in 1948? You have to keep changing and keep learning so that you are constantly challenging yourself, adding a few new songs to your program every chance you get. If you don’t, the world will pass you by.
Harvey Mackay
I struggled with being in the public eye, losing my anonymity when my star rose quickly in the late 90’s. But I need the challenge of showing up and getting up there to spill my guts and connect with my loyal folks.
Paula Cole
Namely, if I am challenging the base of all these institutions, I’m challenging the moral code of altruism. The precept that man’s moral duty is to live for others. That man must sacrifice himself to others. Which is the present day morality.
Ayn Rand
I admire the strength and courage of all young people faced with difficult situations in life. You are an inspiration to me and so many people around you, as you overcome challenges and come out of it stronger.

Nintendo’s philosophy is never to go the easy path; it’s always to challenge ourselves and try to do something new.
Shigeru Miyamoto
You can’t start changing things in your past. Everyone has challenges and lessons to learn – we wouldn’t be who we are without them. I certainly wouldn’t be who I am.
Sean Combs
I’m extremely willful to win, and I respond to challenges. Scoring titles and stuff like that… it sounds, well, I don’t care how it sounds – to me, scoring comes easy. It’s not a challenge to me to win the scoring title, because I know I can.
Kobe Bryant
Life in the open is one of my finest rewards. I enjoy and become completely immersed in the high challenge and increased opportunity to become for a time, a part of nature. Deer hunting is a classical exercise in freedom. It is a return to fundamentals that I instinctively feel are basic and right.
Fred Bear
I just know that the one thing that we all have in common is challenges. No one lives a challenge free life.
Octavia Spencer
I’m a tek addict myself. No matter where you are, people are looking for something to tear them away from reality, challenge their state of mind.
Greg Evigan
First of all there is always that artistic challenge of creating something. Or the particular experience to take slum life in that period and make something out of it in the form of a book. And then I felt some kind of responsibility to my family.
Frank McCourt
I got lot to do at a pretty young age in terms of emotionally challenging films. I did not do any fluff… fluff is not me.
Pooja Bhatt
We live in a century in which everything has been said. The challenge today is to learn which statements to deny.
Charles Hartshorne
In autumn 2012 I conducted a dedication and blessing service following the Civil Partnership of two wonderful gay Christians. Why? Not to challenge the traditional understanding of marriage – far from it – but to extend to these people what I would do to others: the love and support of our local church.
Steve Chalke
The more I heard, the more I’ve learned, and the more I saw, the more resolved I became about helping to address the challenges that plague the Native American community.

John Hutton
One thing people often forget when making a documentary is that, in a sense, you still have to cast, find a star, and it has all of those built-in challenges.
Brian Lindstrom
No one is alone during tribulations – there’s always someone else thinking, rejoicing or suffering in the same way. This thought gives us strength to face the challenge that lies in front of us.
Paulo Coelho

As one of the leading troop-contributing countries, Ethiopia attaches great importance to strengthening the role of United Nations peacekeeping to address challenges to international peace and security.
Hailemariam Desalegn
I came to graduate school with a certain vocabulary about how to talk about other people’s stories, but I couldn’t understand how to look at my own stories in that way. And that was what made editing such a challenge for me.
Tania James
It’s also wonderful to be back with my great friend and ally, Chancellor [Angela] Merkel. As I reflect back over the last eight years, I could not ask for a steadier or more reliable partner on the world stage, often through some very challenging times.
Barack Obama
The Masters is going to be an awesome challenge.
Nigel Mansell
I’m a bit sad because I’m leaving my cherished team in a city where I grew up and where I played for nine years in Santos. But I’m even happier to be facing a new challenge and for making a dream come true.
I try to get roles that challenge me in what I can do and who I think I can portray. For me, it’s about creating characters with really fascinating stories, because that’s what I like to watch on TV.
Tatiana Maslany
I hate drama. But at the same time, nothing bothers me more than when life’s perfect. And that’s the sick part. I just love a challenge, whether it’s a relationship, my career, clothing.
The challenges of delivering more housing so people can enjoy the benefits of home ownership and improving standards and choice in public services can also be met with a strong Conservative policy agenda.
Priti Patel
You are free to smile in the midst of massive tests and challenges, knowing that you have chosen to play this game, and that you have dominion over all the appearances of earth.
Richard Bach
I am a teacher at heart. My goal is to inspire and energize audiences with ideas and possibilities that will challenge them to expand their perceptions of teaching and learning and dare to consider our professional future with optimism and excitement.
David Warlick
Our company was mortgaged to the hilt, and that did restrain us, and it’s why we had to take in partners.
Gina Rinehart
Liberty is not the power of doing what we like, but the right of being able to do what we ought.

Gilda Radner
Stumbling is not falling.
Malcolm X
Success is not built on success. It’s built on failure. It’s built on frustration. Sometimes its built on catastrophe.

Dale Murphy
We proved that we are still a people capable of doing big things and tackling our biggest challenges.
Barack Obama
Business, like life, is funny. We all go through difficult times, and we all have to face curve balls and challenges, each and every week. And we need to laugh when things are funny.
Ronnie Apteker
If I could talk to my younger self, I would just say that the path to great things is filled with a lot of stumbles, suffering, and challenges along the way. But if you have the right attitude and know that hard times will pass – and you get up each time – you will reach your destination.
Jonny Kim
We would be foolish and silly not to unite with people in the public health sector, the environmental community, [and] unions, to try to challenge corporate agriculture.
Wayne Pacelle
Our single greatest challenge is the ability to move power to markets outside North Dakota.
John Hoeven
Selecting your next challenge in life, choose one that is meaningful and will demand your complete concentration.
Brendon Burchard
Since I’m a mother and a wife, I have to have passion or the frustration would win out. But I love managing people. The product is second to managing the people. And marketing to consumers is so challenging because it is evolving constantly.
Andrea Jung
I, Horus, son of Osiris, claim the throne of the heavens as my birthright!” he shouted.”What was once mine shall be mine again.Is there anyone who would challenge me?” The gods flickered and glowed. A few scowled. One muttered something that sounded like “Cheese”, although that could’ve been my imagination.
Rick Riordan
You know, we can’t keep talking about our dependence on foreign oil, and the need to deal with global warming, and the challenge that it poses to our climate and to God’s creation, and just let business as usual go on. And that means something has to be taken away from some people.
Hillary Clinton
I love writing both fiction and memoir. Both have unique challenges; bottom line, fiction is hard because you have to come up with the credible, twisty plot, and memoir is hard because you have to say something true and profound, albeit in a funny way.
Lisa Scottoline
I often lose myself in the Sudoku-like challenges of making a book work.
David Mitchell
We need some clergy with some backbone, who don’t mind making uncomfortable at times those who are very comfortable, and challenging them at the core of their faith, at least causing them to pause and to have dialogue and to be open for further discussion.
Tim McDonald
Feminism is a way of understanding reality, not just a series of things to do. Feminism challenges our predilection for one right answer, one right God, one size fits all.
Phyllis Chesler
I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It’s by the nature of his deep inner soul… we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.
Neil Armstrong
I think film should raise questions, not give answers. I think film should challenge people to reflect, debate and get by themselves to the answer that fits them.
Diego Luna
Extraordinary people are the Green Berets and the Navy Seals and the Olympic athletes – these are the ones who can face these extraordinary physical challenges and be triumphant.
Jonathan Demme
Science is very vibrant. There are always new observations to be found. And it’s all in the interest in challenging the authority that came before you. That’s consistent with the punk rock ethos that suggests that you should not take what people say at face value.
Greg Graffin
Valor’ is a word we don’t commonly hear. People can show courage and bravery confronting many different challenges in life. But ‘valor’ connotes willingly putting oneself in mortal danger to protect others.
William Barr
You both … you both saved me?” “Come on,” said Luis. “You make it sound like it was hard for Val to go to the Unseelie Court, strike a deal with Roiben, challenge Mabry to a duel, win back your heart, and then get back here during rush hour.
Holly Black
Once we become aware of our issues and challenges, we become accountable to do something about it.
Iyanla Vanzant
My anger made me drink as an escape from reality, a way of forgetting. But you don’t know when the medicinal effect ends and the poisoning begins … This is my sixth year of sobriety. Overcoming alcoholism has been my greatest challenge and my greatest reward.
Mercedes McCambridge
If you are not discouraged about your writing on a regular basis, you may not be trying hard enough. Any challenging pursuit will encounter frequent patches of frustration. Writing is nothing if not challenging.
Maxwell Perkins

Louise Hay
Either you face the challenges in life head on or back out. And I am not someone to back out from challenges.
Harbhajan Singh
Greatness as a leader is measured in part by your willingness to accept daunting challenges. Achieving tough goals requires practicing the secret of commitment: Risk all to win all.
Toyotomi Hideyoshi
The essay I had to read was called, “An Essay on Criticism” by Alexander Pope. The first challenge was that the essay was, in fact, a very long poem in “heroic couplets”. If something is called an essay, it should be an essay.
Maureen Johnson
I suppose what I like about Zen is that the teachers are constantly questioning your insight and challenging it, looking for sloppiness or laziness in it, and ways you can go past that.
David O. Russell
If a technology is elegant, biodegradable, made from renewable materials and employs a minimum of muscular, water or wind energy, is responsive, beautiful in its way, and challenging to the user in that it develops the user’s senses and strength – it may comport with nature.
Stephanie Mills
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.
Robert Kennedy
Don’t limit your challenges; challenge your limits. Each day we must strive for constant and never ending improvement.
Tony Robbins
Donald Trump has come on a lot and I think one of the hardest parts of my job is digging down beyond their talking points to get them to say something that people actually want to hear rather than what they’ve come to the interview with, and that is difficult. That’s a reporter’s challenge.
Maria Bartiromo
With the magnitude of the challenges we face right now, what we need in Washington are not more political tactics, we need more good ideas. We don’t need more point scoring, we need more problem solving.
Barack Obama
Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.
Bernice Johnson Reagon
Tackling challenges that are too big for you is what makes you grow as a human being. Why do you think this problem keeps coming up in your life, staring you in the face? Do you think you’re supposed to ignore it and hide from it and wait for someone else to solve it for you? If you notice it, you own it.
Steve Pavlina
That’s the big challenge of life—to chisel disappointment into wisdom so people respect you and you don’t annoy your friends with your whining.
Marc Maron
As a former small business owner, I recognize both the important role small businesses play in our economy and the broad universe of challenges that small business owners face in trying to make ends meet.
Sue Kelly
I suppose for me as an artist it wasn’t always just about expressing my work; I really wanted, more than anything else, to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit towards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.
David Bowie
Global challenges also require global solutions, and few indeed are the situations in which the United States or any other country can act completely alone.
Shashi Tharoor
Every project has challenges, and every project has its rewards.
Stephen Schwartz
One of the more interesting challenges I face when doing research for my novels is to trace the lives of women who are vital to the narrative and try my best to give them back their voices.
Susanna Kearsley
I’ve programmed myself musically to come up with love-feeling tracks that are romantic, sexy, but classy, all in one. And that’s the challenge. Once I create that music, then the lyrical content starts to come – you know, the stories and things like that.
R. Kelly
Believe it is possible to solve your problem. Tremendous things happen to the believer. So believe the answer will come. It will.
Norman Vincent Peale
The big challenge is finding something new without changing completely what you’ve already done – going deeper into what you’ve already done and discovering new things while carrying out the same intention.
Condola Rashad
We have laid the foundation for a better life. Things that were unimaginable a few years ago have become everyday reality. I belong to the generation of leaders for whom the achievement of democracy was the defining challenge.
Nelson Mandela
A rattlesnake that doesn’t bite teaches you nothing.
Jessamyn West
I’m the type of person where, A., I look at things as challenges, I like challenges and, B., I truly believe that you determine your own destiny.
J. Cole
Kids in urban and rural areas face so many challenges, and they show up at schools that don’t have the extra capacity or extra resources to meet their needs.
Wendy Kopp
One of the challenges of wearing so many hats, is that I love each and every one of them!
Andrea Davis Pinkney
Really great design is hard. Good is the enemy of great. Competent design is not too much of a stretch. But if you are trying to do something new, you have challenges on so many axes.
Jonathan Ive
In school, we learn that mistakes translate into bad grades. This unfortunate lesson gets burned into our brains, and we go through life shunning challenges that might end in failure.
Mark Frauenfelder
The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They are there to stop the other people!
Randy Pausch
If the cause of poverty is marginalization, the cure is inclusion.
Richard John Neuhaus
The meal plan was hard at first because I am a snack eater, but the most challenging part is trying to change my pallet to like healthy food.
Ruby Gettinger
The progress in Iraq is still fragile. And it could still be reversed. Iraq still faces innumerable challenges, and they will be evident during what will likely be a difficult process as the newly elected Council of Representatives selects the next prime minister, president, and speaker of the council.
David Petraeus
People who are harder to love pose a challenge, and the challenge makes them easier to love. You’re driven to love them. People who want their love easy don’t really want love.
Rachel Kushner
Their attitude is, ‘okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.’ It’s kind of a passive attitude they’re taking, and to me it’s kind of a pathetic thing. They do not know how interesting it is if you move one step further and try to challenge yourself with more advanced games.
Shigeru Miyamoto
I get excited when the people I work with scare me. I get excited when I’m surrounded by people who make me better and make me stay on my game and challenge me.
Jim Carrey
Playing President Clinton (in Primary Colors) was risky and challenging. Some people thought Saturday Night Fever was risky, because no one had danced in movies for years.
John Travolta
Every crucial experience can be regarded either as a setback, or the start of a wonderful new adventure, it depends on your perspective!
Mary Roberts Rinehart
The challenge of warriorship is to step out of the cocoon, to step out into space, by being brave and at the same time gentle
Chogyam Trungpa
People ask me often, ‘Why did you leave Green Bay? You had the best quarterback, you were going good and all that.’ But I’ve always been one for challenges. Try to build something up, try something new, challenge myself.
Mike Holmgren
If you’re looking for an adventure, an intellectual challenge, and a close-knit community of professionals, consider land surveying! It’s not for everyone, and I’d recommend working as a surveyor’s assistant or office staff before committing to the necessary schooling.
Mark Mason
