When people learn that I’m a qualified primary school teacher, I’m often met with surprise and a list of questions, including, ‘How do the children react?

Sinead Burke

The word ‘family’ has always posed great difficulties. Until recently, high death rates for women in labour meant many stepmothers and, according to folklore, most of them wicked. After two world wars, we lost many fathers, and single- and step-parenting emerged from the rubble.
Michael Rosen
Reasoned arguments and suggestions which make allowance for the full difficulties of the state of war that exists may help, and will always be listened to with respect and sympathy.
Stafford Cripps
One of the difficulties you run into is that acting and celebrity are so closely intertwined. People make careers out of being charismatic personalities.

Billy Crudup
The sound was my greatest concern. There were certain difficulties getting used to the way every musician can hear his or herself, the way each of them relates to the musician in the next seat.

There are two ways of meeting difficulties: you alter the difficulties or you alter yourself meeting them.
Phyllis Bottome

Catania was a real learning curve. I grew amid difficulties. In terms of courage and ideas, a lot about my Atleti comes from Italy.

Neel Mukherjee
If the great American people will only keep their temper, on both sides of the line, the troubles will come to an end, and the question which now distracts the country will be settled just as surely as all other difficulties of like character which have originated in this government have been adjusted.
Abraham Lincoln
I remember sometimes a difficulty and I realise that it taught me something or it helped me later on. The difficulties in the past are the wins in the present.
Even modern English people are imperious, superior, ridden by class. All of the hypocrisy and the difficulties that are endemic in being British also make it an incredibly fertile place culturally. A brilliant place to live. Sad but true.

Calvin Klein
To strive with difficulties, and to conquer them, is the highest human felicity.

Wendy Long

We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties.

Jimmer Fredette
When FDR died in 1945, he was still paralyzed from the waist down. After he died, his portrait was put on the dime. Through his illness, he went out of his way to minimize his difficulties. Of the thousands of pictures taken of him, only two show him in a leg brace or a wheelchair.

I became obsessed with making more and more tiny things. I think I was trying to find a way of compensating for my embarrassment at having learning difficulties: people had made me feel small so I wanted to show them how significant ‘small’ could be.
Willard Wigan
As a person, when I was seven or eight, my dad would try very hard to tutor me through school because I had learning difficulties or whatever. I would wish that they could just plant a chip in my brain so that I would know everything and not have to study.

When I was growing up in the Forties and Fifties, you could hide your children from the difficulties of life, but today you can’t separate children’s contact with the adult world today.

Frustration with the trains is inevitable, given the daily difficulties commuters face.
Nish Kumar

Jean Piaget

Salt Bae

Andrew Lo
The cause of our difficulties in southeast Asia is not a deficiency of power but an excess of the wrong kind of power which results in a feeling of impotence when it fails to achieve its desired ends.
J. William Fulbright
A diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome can be useful to help a person understand why they have had difficulties.
Simon Baron-Cohen
Blacks have experienced a history of victimization in America, beginning obviously in slavery and then another 100 years of segregation. I grew up in segregation. I know very well what it was about and all of the difficulties it placed on black life, and how we were truly held down before the civil-rights movement.
Shelby Steele
So South Korean ability is very much limited to handle North Korean, you know, difficulties. So we don’t want to see an immediate collapse of the North Korea regime.
Kim Dae Jung

Toni Morrison

John Moody
The things that block a writer are not the lack of words, but the same things that block all people – the difficulties of life.
Max Apple
The question is not, will there be difficulties and threats to our existence, but how will we deal with them and what can we learn from them. How can they become blessings to society, as a life threatening disease is to an individual, by teaching us about the meaning of our life and existence?
Bernie Siegel
There are so many beautiful things that are a part of the world, and I’ve always looked at life that way; I’ve always tried to put on a smile and a brave front, not just for my kids but in my own life and all the difficulties that I’ve gone through.
Gloria Estefan
Knowing that I might be encouraging others by facing my own difficulties is what helps me get out of bed in the morning.
Jeff Bauman
Nothing can astound an American. It has often been asserted that the word ‘impossible’ is not a French one. People have evidently been deceived by the dictionary. In America, all is easy, all is simple; and as for mechanical difficulties, they are overcome before they arise.
Jules Verne
When the first settlers landed on American shores, the difficulties in finding or making shelter must have seemed ironical as well as almost unbearable.
Alice Morse Earle

Loretta Lynch
There is no doubt that I, also, had long been aware of the problem, i.e. producing X-ray interferences, before the inherent difficulties had finally been surmounted.
Max von Laue
Life would pall if it were all sugar; salt is bitter if taken by itself; but when tasted as part of the dish, it savours the meat. Difficulties are the salt of life.

I am concerned because even in the past two years that were the jubilee years, I have seen evident signs which show that the people are still in great difficulties, and there are things that still need to be remedied and looked after in many areas.
Bhumibol Adulyadej
There are very few things impossible in themselves; and we do not want means to conquer difficulties so much as application and resolution in the use of means.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Roland Allen

Joseph B. Wirthlin
As a child I’m sure I was no different from any other human being struggling to navigate the difficulties and complexities of their childhood and adolescent years. I feel it’s a time when all of us need an escape, a place where we can leave the world behind and just disappear. For me, it was film.
Sam Levinson
Love conquers all difficulties, surmounts all obstacles, and effects what to any other power would be impossible.
William Godwin

Julie Newmar
Regardless of the difficulties we may face individually, in our families, in our communities and in our nation, the old adage is still true – you can make excuses or you can make progress, but you cannot make both! The America I know doesn’t make excuses.
Mia Love
Armchair poverty tourism has been around as long as authors have written about class. As an author, I have struggled myself with the nuances of writing about poverty without reducing any community to a catalog of its difficulties.
Leslie Jamison
I had four great years at West Ham. People will always refer to the difficulties at certain times, but you get those everywhere.

Jasmin Bhasin
Consequently many large railroad systems of heavy capitalization bid fair to run into difficulties on the first serious falling off in general business.
John Moody
I was raised on John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee series. Something about this genre – hard-boiled-private-eye-with-heart-of-gold – never failed to take me away from whatever difficulties haunted my daily world to a wonderful land where I was no more than an enthralled spectator.
Alan Furst
Insurance companies, government agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry all push for mental health care that is brief, intermittent, and focused on quick fixes, despite the fact that many people struggle with emotional difficulties that can only be addressed over time using special psychodynamic skills.
Robert J. Waldinger
Only a great actor finds the difficulties of the actor’s art infinite.
Ellen Terry
My parents were divorced when I was a young teenager, and I was raised by a single mother after that. So, I understand the difficulties that families have. I understand single parenting.
Michele Bachmann
My mother’s feeling about men in general were always a bit of a mystery to me. She had difficulties in Puerto Rico with the men in her life. Her brothers abused her. It’s very easy to be judgmental, but more often than not, there are mitigating circumstances, and children are not usually aware of those.
Rita Moreno
If you look at my career it has always been about overcoming difficulties in different places.
One of the difficulties in living the lifestyle I lead is that it is hard to get my friends in one place.
Sean Parker
I want to make sure when my team is having difficulties, they can count on me.
Romelu Lukaku
I have for some time now been deeply troubled by the growing difficulties faced by Christian communities in various parts of the Middle East.

Prince Charles
Each person makes their own choice, but my spirit is meant to stay in Iran, especially with the work that I do, and with the emotional connection I have with the country – with all its difficulties, this is why I stay.

There may be some difficulties, some interruptions, but as a nation and as a people, we are going to build a truly multiracial, democratic society that maybe can emerge as a model for the rest of the world.
John Lewis

Access to capital is one of the most important first steps entrepreneurs take when starting a business, and it is also one of the biggest difficulties, especially for our veterans.

In many patients, covid-19 causes a bilateral pneumonia affecting both lungs. Air sacs in the lungs become inflamed and filled with fluid, leading to breathing difficulties and low oxygen saturation. If the pneumonia becomes extremely severe, patients need to be intubated and put on a ventilator.
Leana S. Wen
I suppose I am interested in the variety of human life – how people live. I am most interested in individuals and how they respond to challenges or to difficulties or just to each other. I am curious about people.
Claire Denis
I know I have difficulties with some verbs. But if they get me, they get me. And if they don’t understand me, they don’t understand me.
It’s hard for me to talk about a legacy or a mystique. It’s my family. The fact that there have been difficulties and hardships, or obstacles, makes us closer.
John F. Kennedy Jr.
My difficulties belong to me!
Alfred Adler
I didn’t have any personal goals when I came, but after being in politics – after seeing people, their difficulties, their wants – I think our goal has to be to eliminate poverty from India.
Rajiv Gandhi
In the West, if a city faces financial difficulties, it’ll go bankrupt. But in China, cities will be subsidised by the Ministry of Finance. So some small- and medium-sized cities aren’t worried about going bankrupt. They figure the central government will help them out.
Wang Shi
Magneto wants to cope with the difficulties thrust upon him by society and by his own nature.
Ian Mckellen

Andrea Corr
All the difficulties surrounding the making of ‘Mars et Avril’ actually fueled its creativity and contributed to its international success!
Martin Villeneuve
We Are Bulletproof: The Eternal’ demonstrates that we will keep going despite the difficulties. It reveals our ego.
People love to be listened to and represented, and they love it when they feel like you have some of the same problems that they do. Everybody deals with things like romantic difficulties in relationships and death and cancer and abuse.

It has been one of my difficulties, in arguing this question out of doors with friends or strangers, that I rarely find any intelligible agreement as to the object of the war.
Richard Cobden
Who sees Wanderlei Silva today, with all the marketing, with a good gym and getting paid well to fight, they don’t know the difficulties I went through. I went through a lot of hardships in my life.
Wanderlei Silva
Concerned that others were not coming onto the summit and because I had no radio link to those below me, I began to wonder if there were difficulties down the mountain. I made the decision to descend.
Anatoli Boukreev
At the center of the religious life is a peculiar kind of joy, the prospect of a happy ending that blossoms from necessarily painful ordeals, the promise of human difficulties embraced and overcome.
Huston Smith
The difficulties of many European countries derive from their corporatism: state projects serving cronies and vast social protection programmes, both run by elites. These surged in the 1970s and 1980s.
Edmund Phelps

Alain de Botton

Europe has found itself confronted with fresh challenges – challenges of a global character, the nature of which is directly connected with changes in the international climate and the difficulties of seeking new models for co-operation.
