Be true. Be as true and honest with yourself as you can and then you’ve just got to let it go from there out into the universe. Whatever happens after that, I have no control of, but I do have control of what I’m willing to put out there.
Pegi Young
Your car goes where your eyes go. Lonliness is unable to survive without a willing host.
Garth Stein
I don’t really have any “must work withs,” but I would never refuse if a celebrity or fellow musician came along who is willing to write or sing or play on a Lita song.
Lita Ford
In China, especially in the cities, if someone fainted on the streets, or if someone was knocked over by a car, you’ll find lots of gawkers and gloaters, but rarely will you find someone willing to extend a helping hand.
Unknown
The wisdom and spirit of Churchill not only saved Britain from the Third Reich but saved Western civilization from a Nazi Dark Ages when no other nation was willing to take up that defense. Churchill was the greatest military, political and spiritual leader of the 20th century.
Victor Davis Hanson
… the country deserves us to be willing to compromise on behalf of the greater good.
Barack Obama
Scientists willing to risk their reputations on higher dimensions soon found themselves ridiculed by the scientific community. Higher-dimensional space became the last refuge for mystics, cranks, and charlatans.
Michio Kaku
Rights are either God-given as part of the divine plan, or they are granted by government as part of the political plan. If we accept the premise that human rights are granted by government, then we must be willing to accept the corollary that they can be denied by government.
Ezra Taft Benson
Whether that’s an action film or a comedy or a drama or anything in between, I’m willing to prove that I can play with the big boys.
Sasha Grey
I really believe deep in my soul that we’re going to have to step up and face these challenges and be tough and pull together and unify and be creative and be willing to sacrifice.
Zach Wamp
As a supporter of secularism, I am willing to accept same-sex weddings in a state-sanctioned register office, on grounds of equity. As a believer in Islam, however, I insist that no mosque be forced to hold one against its wishes.
Mehdi Hasan
To have a successful writing career, you must be willing to sacrifice a great deal. The book, the deadline come first before anything else. Writing is not a job; it is a lifestyle, and it is a roller-coaster ride of highs and lows. You need self-confidence and an iron carapace.
Virginia Henley
The first breach was in My Garden, and because you were willing to stand in the coldness that that breach had caused from last season, I now am producing blessings in your midst. Now the next breach is linked with the provision that needs to be unlocked. Therefore, all God-robbing spirits will be broken.
Chuck Pierce
I think it’s so dope that I’m here in Chicago and contributing to the music scene that’s thriving. People are so happy Chicago’s shining that everyone is willing to say ‘I represent Chicago.’ That wasn’t always the case.
Chance the Rapper
You must be willing to take whatever pieces of life come your way and arrange them so that they work with and for you rather than against you. The key is to be willing. The willingness to arrange rather than complain or make excuses will pay off.
Wayne Dyer
The world is full of people who want their ears tickled on strategies for wealth creation and protection and so-called revealed secrets to wealth creation. And there are plenty of slick ‘business coaches’ who are more than willing to do just that – for a fee. This is the world of the seminar guru.
Dan Pena
It’s not wether you were right or wrong, but how much faith you were willing to have – that decides the future.
Hideo Kojima
I open myself genuinely to all people by being willing to fully communicate my deepest feelings, since hiding in any degree keep me stuck in my illusion of separateness from other people.
Ken Keyes Jr.
I’ve had a very interesting life. There are ways of handling the complexities. I’m willing to take on the responsibilities as a father, as a producer, as an actor; and I enjoy that. I’ve always been changing and evolving and growing. There’s no pinnacle of power where you can sit back and relax.
Tom Cruise
I was desperate to work with Stuart Immonen, who I have talked with for several years about doing a project together. So just the stars aligned. I knew that Stuart had a little break in his schedule, where he would be willing to do a project with me. So this year I’ve been very lucky.
Mark Millar
Very often people who admit the facts, who are willing to see that Mr. Rockefeller has employed force and fraud to secure his ends, justify him by declaring, ‘It’s business.’ That is, ‘it’s business’ has come to be a legitimate excuse for hard dealing, sly tricks, special privileges.
Ida Tarbell
Be willing to be uncomfortable. Be comfortable being uncomfortable. It may get tough, but it’s a small price to pay for living a dream.
Peter McWilliams
Be willing to be a beginner every single morning.
Meister Eckhart
Having it all is easy if youre willing to work for it
Adrienne Maloof
Before we can pray, “Lord, Thy Kingdom come,” we must be willing to pray, “My Kingdom go.”
Alan Redpath
It is a big embarrassment that a leader can say on the eve of an election that he cannot hand over power to an opponent, that he can only hand over power to a member of his political party.
Raila Odinga
I’ve always believed that you can be whatever you want to be if you are willing to sacrifice and dedicate yourself.
Sugar Ray Leonard
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The devil has convinced so many people that they are worthless. Each of us needs to stop and remember the cross-at the cross we will discover our true value-for it is here that we discover the price God was willing to pay for us, the depth of His love, and how much we are worth to Him.
Roy Lessin
First of all, a man, whether seeking achievement on the athletic field or in business, must want to win. He must feel that the thing he is doing is worthwhile; so worthwhile that he is willing to pay the price of success to attain distinction.
Branch Rickey
To discover new continents, you must be willing to lose sight of the shore.
Brian Tracy
True love, unlike popular sentimental substitutes, is willing to suffer. Love is not “luv.” Love is the cross. Our problem at first, the sheer problem of suffering, was a cross without Christ. We must never fall into the opposite and equal trap of a Christ without a cross.
Peter Kreeft
I am willing to release old negative beliefs. They are only thoughts that stand in my way. My new thoughts are positive and fulfilling.
Louise Hay
If you accept others as equals, you embrace them unconditionally, now and forever. But if you let them know that you tolerate them, you suggest in the same breath that they are actually an inconvenience, like a nagging pain or an unpleasant odour you are willing to disregard.
Arthur Japin
My theory is, independent movies only work if you’re willing to push the material and do something different.
Balthazar Getty
My fellow Americans, we can only build our bridge to the 21st century if we build it together, and if we’re willing to walk arm-in-arm across that bridge together.
William J. Clinton
The Beijing Olympics and the Shanghai World Expo show just how much effort China is willing to spend to enter the global stage. But while China desires to understand the world, it fails to accept its universal values.
Ai Weiwei
Feminine power isn’t something we go out and acquire; it’s already within us. It’s something we become willing to experience. Something to admit we have
Marianne Williamson
You can tell yourself that you would be willing to lose everything you have in order to get something you want. But it’s a catch-22: all of those things you’re willing to lose are what make you recognizable. Lose them, and you’ve lost yourself.
Jodi Picoult
I’m not perfect, I’m a flawed man, but I’m willing to try to get better, I’m willing to listen.
Nate Parker
Your rewards in life are determined by the kinds of problems you are willing to solve for someone.
Mike Murdock
I have a lot of confidence in my shot and I’m willing to shoot it no matter what.
Derrick Rose
Bush and Blair combined their efforts to deceive both nations in a carefully coordinated manner, more so than anyone is willing to point out in the media.
Bianca Jagger
In intellectual honesty, we should be willing to study and explore the spiritual life with all the rigor and determination we would give to any field of research.
Richard J. Foster
I believe you have to be willing to be misunderstood if you’re going to innovate.
Jeff Bezos
The greatest testimony to the human spirit that I’m witnessing now is the fact that people still come back to work, after all that has been done to them. They are still willing to participate for a more positive future if they would be sincerely invited.
Walter Wriston
There are occasions when you can hear the mysterious language of the Earth, in water, or coming through the trees, emanating from the mosses, seeping through the under currents of the soil, but you have to be willing to wait and receive.
John Hay
Democrats, the mainstream media, Hollywood elites are so out of touch when it comes to keeping you, the American people, safe from radical Islamic terrorism, and they are willing to gamble with your life.
Sean Hannity
The greatest gift a church can receive is to have a group of families who take their responsibilitie s with such Christian seriousness that they are willing to completely alter their lifestyle to raise up disciples for Jesus Christ.
Abraham Kuyper
What we want is men with a little courage to stand up for Christ. When Christianity wakes up, and every child that belongs to the Lord is willing to speak for Him, is willing to work for Him, and, if need be, willing to die for Him, then Christianity will advance, and we shall see the work of the Lord prosper.
Dwight L. Moody
The world is a very puzzling place. If you’re not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else’s mind.
Noam Chomsky
I hear so many things about who I am supposed to be I hardly know what to believe. I am willing to tell all, but what Is it? Doubtless all these myths and legends will be straightened out eventually, but It may take years.
Will Cuppy
Look at the very people who are involved in this. They have popped up in other settings. The great story here for anybody willing to find it, write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president.
Hillary Clinton
Unless you are willing to do the ridiculous, God will not do the miraculous. When you have God, you don’t have to know everything about it; you just do it.
Mother Angelica
A good ice hockey player is someone who has good communication skills, is willing to listen and willing to try new things. It’s a very technical game and not that easy to pick up. It’s a lot of fun but you just have to be patient.
Gerad Adams
God enters the world through those of us who are willing to let God participate fully in our lives.
Nancy Mairs
The Republican establishment may in fact be so desirous of getting rid of the Tea Party as its base, they may be willing to lose some elections in order to get rid of their base and put up a new base.
Rush Limbaugh
You cannot improve your future if you are not willing to try something new and risk making mistakes and learning from them
Robert Kiyosaki
It is difficult to recognize true love, the one which you feel for the other person, when for years the girls, even more than one per night, after concerts would sneak in our beds and were willing to do everything – group sex also – just to stay with Anthony Kiedis and the Red Hot.
Anthony Kiedis
To me, there is no greater threat than our debt. I’m the only fiscal conservative on the stage because I’m willing to hold the line on all spending.
Rand Paul
There are many different types of prioritites in Motor Racing, the first…being how much you are willing to sacrifice in order to get to where you want to go.
Carroll Smith
We can never be a nation of snobs so long as we are willing to poke fun at ourselves.
Edgar Wilson Nye
This is a formidable enemy. To dismiss it as a bunch of ‘cowards’ perpetuating ‘senseless acts of violence’ is complacent nonsense. People willing to kill thousands of innocents while they kill themselves are not cowards. They are deadly vicious warriors and need to be treated as such.
Charles Krauthammer
I’ve always been very direct and have told the truth and have been very willing to stand up and speak out.
Bev Perdue
If you are willing to look at another person’s behavior toward you as a reflection of the state of their relationship with themselves rather than a statement about your value as a person. then you will, over a period of time, cease to react at all.
Harbhajan Singh Yogi
Begin today. Declare out loud to the universe that you are willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Passion is a huge prerequisite to winning. It makes you willing to jump through hoops, go through all the ups and downs and everything in between to reach your goal.
Kerri Walsh
Not everyone who started with you will finish with you. Be willing to go without them if you have to.
Tony Gaskins
She was more than willing to let him walk off his temper. And the man had one, even if he wasn’t willing to admit it.
Nalini Singh
I am willing to put myself through anything; temporary pain or discomfort means nothing to me as long as I can see that the experience will take me to a new level.
Diana Nyad
[Computing] is just a fabulous place for that, because it’s a place where you don’t have to be a Ph.D. or anything else. It’s a place where you can still be an artisan. People are willing to pay you if you’re any good at all, and you have plenty of time for screwing around.
Alan Kay
Instead of adjusting students to docile membership in whatever group they happen to be placed, we should equip them to cope with their environment, not be adjusted to it, to be willing to stand alone, if necessary, for what is right and true.
Joel Henry Hildebrand
There are many who say they want to be victorious Christians, but few are willing to endure the discipline necessary to make one a good solider of Jesus Christ. There is a prize to possess, but before we possess it there is a price to be paid, and few will pay it.
Vance Havner
About the only value the story of my life may have is to show that one can, even without any particular gifts, overcome obstacles that seem insurmountable if one is willing to face the fact that they must be overcome.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Ask for what you want, but be willing to take what God gives you. It may be better than what you asked for.
Norman Vincent Peale
The image of the disinterested, dispassionate scientist is no less false than that of the mad scientist who is willing to destroy the world for knowledge.
Lewis Wolpert
When the hour comes for dealing with slavery, I trust I will be willing to do my duty though it cost my life.
Abraham Lincoln
It was a great idea from my teammate Jamal Crawford. He kept telling me to jump over Spud, so we decided to call him and he was more than willing to participate with me. I just thank God for him.
Nate Robinson
Holiness does not consist in mystic speculations, enthusiastic fervours, or uncommanded austerities; it consists in thinking as God thinks, and willing as God wills.
John Brown
God and the politicians willing, the United States can declare peace upon the world, and win it.
Ely Culbertson
America must continue diplomacy, even as we continue the war, to expand the coalition of the willing to share the burden of war and to share the responsibility and the economic cost of rebuilding Iraq
Barbara Mikulski
It ought to be done by the elected officials themselves because they have the credibility. And it’s not like we aren’t willing to help.
Jon Kyl
I am told many children block out the memory of trauma. In fact, the healing process can only truly begin when we are willing to remember.
Phoebe Stone
They’re not willing to admit that I’ve also shed blood and tears and often paid dearly for my success. This makes me feel extremely sad.
Zhang Ziyi
On the subject of religious belief, we relax standards of reasonableness and evidence that we rely on in every other area of our lives. We relax so totally that people believe the most ludicrous propositions, and are willing to organize their lives around them.
Sam Harris
No matter who you are, no matter what your color, creed, how you choose to pray or who you choose to love, that if you are an American – first generation or fifth – one who is willing to work hard, play by the rules and apply your God-given talents – that you should be able to find a job that pays the bills.
Cory Booker
Hispanics work hard and are willing to make tremendous sacrifices for the next generation.
Rachel Campos-Duffy
The frightened walk away when love is difficult. I know that now. You have to be willing to give everything away. You have to be willing to end up with nothing. Only then will your heart be whole.
Alice Hoffman
It’s a brutal regime, in the Assad regime, that is willing to take any measure, no matter how immoral or war criminal acts, to persecute its goals.
Derek Chollet
I think there’s going to be a lot of Americans who are really willing to be much more active than they were before, because they’re worried about where Trump is headed.
Charles Schumer
When a human kills an animal for food, he is neglecting his own hunger for justice. Man prays for mercy, but is unwilling to extend it to others. Why should man then expect mercy from God? It’s unfair to expect something that you are not willing to give.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
Things are picking up…It’s not going to make this thing go away… don’t think you’re going to find anybody deterred…There’s a lot of people willing to die for the cause.
Jerry Vlasak
Debts grow and grow. And the more they grow, the more they shrink the economy. When you shrink the economy, you shrink the ability to pay the debts, so it’s all an illusion that the system can be saved. The question is, how long are people going to be willing to live in this illusion?
Michael Hudson
Studies indicate that the one quality all successful people have is persistence. They’re willing to spend more time accomplishing a task and to persevere in the face of many difficult odds. There’s a very positive relationship between people’s ability to accomplish any task and the time they’re willing to spend on it.
Joyce Brothers
Do what you feel called to do, but also be prepared to accept that you don’t necessarily know what you’re going to learn. Be willing to be surprised by forces beyond your control, and realize that a major learning on the journey is the art of surrender.
M. Scott Peck
You need to decide whether you’re willing to risk being hurt, plain and simple. You can go for it and have a wonderful relationship. Or you might go for it and crash and burn brilliantly. It’s up to you if you want to take that risk, up to you if it’s worth it or not.
Erin McCarthy
A rationalist is simply someone for whom it is more important to learn than to be proved right; someone who is willing to learn from others – not by simply taking over another’s opinions, but by gladly allowing others to criticize his ideas and by gladly criticizing the ideas of others
Karl Popper
I find that one of the most important things, as a writer, is to just show up – to just stay in the chair and fight through the difficult patches. As long as you’re at the desk, and you’re willing to fight it out, eventually the right words will come.
Eric Schlosser
It’s not who wins the fight that’s important, it’s being willing to fight. If you get challenged and renege, everyone wants to take a shot at you.
Barclay Plager
Everyone has a comfort zone. Worth considering: How hard (and how often) are you willing to work to get out of it? You can turn that into a habit if you choose.
Seth Godin
I’ve thought about it, not a lot, but I thought my relationship with Congress – the Democrats and Republicans – would help me get some things done. Not everything, but at least they’d be willing to try.
Bob Dole
To me, celebrity doesn’t mean a whole lot unless you’re willing to use it. So I wanted to use it in a different way, with my AIDS work, the human rights stuff for the gay and lesbian community and the speaking I do.
Judith Light
Undocumented aliens unfortunately are not protected by the law, and they are tremendously subjected to exploitation. The result is that they would be willing to work for a wage that no person who is welcome in our shores would take.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
I think it is quite dangerous for an organisation to think they can predict where they are going to need leadership. It needs to be something that people are willing to assume if it feels relevant, given the context of any situation.
Margaret J. Wheatley
I’m willing to take any amount of pain to win.
Lewis Hamilton
Oh, yes. I’d do it all again; the spirit is willing yet; I feel the same desire to do the work but the flesh is weak. It’s too bad that our bodies wear out while our interests are just as strong as ever.
Susan B. Anthony
For the most part, if you’re willing to work hard enough, you can recover from most injuries. Having that mentality really helps you keep moving forward.
Mike Schultz
Maybe you’re willing to tolerate a lot of bigotry from Donald Trump if you say, just change things, just change things.
David Brooks
There is an interesting point about the price of success: It must always be paid in full-and in advance. Everyone wants to be successful. Everyone wants to be healthy, happy, thin, and rich. But most people are not willing to pay the price.
Brian Tracy
The generation of atmosphere, the aura of the uncanny, is one of the most important secrets of magic. It contributes to the willing suspension of disbelief, the feeling that, within the circle, or in the presence of the magical shrine, anything may happen.
Doreen Valiente
Almost any idea is good if a man has ability and is willing to work hard. The best idea is worthless if the creator is a loafer and ineffective.
William Feather
It is only when a woman surrenders her life to her husband, reveres and worships him, and is willing to serve him, that she becomes really beautiful to him. She becomes a priceless jewel, the glory of femininity, his queen!
Marabel Morgan
it is only to the extent that we are willing to expose ourselves again and again to annihilation that we are able to find that part of ourselves that is indestructible.
Pema Chodron
My religious position: I think that God could do a lot better, and I’m willing to give Him the chance.
Mignon McLaughlin
An American worker should not expect his pay to be cut because somebody comes to this country illegally and is willing to work for less than he or she should be paid
Gary Miller
I did a twenty foot print and John Cage is involved in that because he was the only person I knew in New York who had a car and who would be willing to do this.
Robert Rauschenberg
The guy who’s willing to hustle the most is gonna be the guy that just gets that loose ball.
Will Smith
Everyone in a successful organization must be willing and ready to risk. Risk is like change; it’s not a choice.
Max De Pree
Identity is becoming more dependent on what people are willing subscribe to and less dependent on objective criteria such as skin colour or where they’re born. Ways of identifying blackness are no longer black or white. It’s not a case of us or them, you can now be us and them; like them but different.
Stuart Hall
If a person is not willing to make a mistake, you’re never going to do anything right.
Sanford I. Weill
When you choose your fields of labor go where nobody else is willing to go.
Mary Lyon
You cannot lecture another people about what you think is right or wrong based on your value system unless you’re willing to accept others imposing their value system on you.
Adel al-Jubeir
The stage is yours, my dear Aaronic Priesthood boys. Are you ready and willing to play your part? The Lord needs every able young man to prepare and recommit, starting tonight, to be worthy of a call from the prophet of God to serve a mission.
Ronald A. Rasband
Trump, in the crinkling of an eye, senses better than anyone the insecurity of people, that nobody knows whether anything is good or bad until they are told, and he is quite willing to tell them immediately.
Jimmy Breslin
A man doesn’t say I will starve myself to death to keep from starving, or that he’d spend all of his money to save money. Why should he be willing to die for the privilege of living?
Dalton Trumbo
For a psychiatrist to be any good, he has to be willing to corner you, close off the easy exits, even when it hurts. It’s supposed to. (46)
Keith Ablow
To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s-land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again.
Pema Chodron
If we go on the way we have, the fault is our greed and if we are not willing to change, we will disappear from the face of the globe, to be replaced by the insect.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
Value investing requires a great deal of hard work, unusually strict discipline, and a long-term investment horizon. Few are willing and able to devote sufficient time and effort to become value investors, and only a fraction of those have the proper mind-set to succeed.
Seth Klarman
I like that Ben & Jerry’s is willing to speak out about social and political issues that aren’t always safe – but are the right thing to do.
Jerry Greenfield
I was very willing to take on controversial roles that people didn’t really want to look at.
Rosie Perez
You have to understand accounting and you have to understand the nuances of accounting. It’s the language of business and it’s an imperfect language, but unless you are willing to put in the effort to learn accounting – how to read and interpret financial statements – you really shouldn’t select stocks yourself
Warren Buffett
Television is so influential that when an audience sees you day-in and day-out there’s a certain acceptance that sets in; you’re no longer a threatening personality. They become more willing to accept whatever you present.
Doc Severinsen
The New Age orgy: The flesh was willing but the spirit’s weak.
Edward Abbey
Prayer is not about changing God, but being willing to let God change us.
Richard Rohr
I, for one, am quite willing to join the ‘forgive, forget and move on’ crowd, but it does make me wonder if Evangelicals are going to sound believable when they say that they tend to vote Republican because of their religious commitments to the family.
Tony Campolo
Great leadership usually starts with a willing heart,
a positive attitude, and a desire to make a difference.
Mac Anderson
It’s reached this point where people are fascinated by every intricate detail of other people’s lives. And some people are willing to give up their lives like that.
Sienna Miller
The most difficult thing in the world is to reveal yourself, to express what you have to. As an artist, I feel that we must try many things – but above all we must dare to fail. You must be willing to risk everything to really express it all.
John Cassavetes
The secret is you need a director who refuses to walk away and you need a director willing to put their whole career behind the project.
Ruba Nadda
I think when somebody seeks mercy and forgiveness and means it, and I was with [Donald Trump] the entire time, including when he learned about this, people ought to think about that. They ought to think about when somebody asks you for forgiveness contrite and for mercy – are you willing to give it?
Kellyanne Conway
I treat him [Donald Trump] as an entertainer. I laugh it off. It’s like going to the circus and seeing the acrobats and the dancing bears. He’s willing to say things that are patently false.
Ted Cruz
As the farmer casts into the ground the finest ears of his grain, the time will come when we too shall hold nothing back, but shall eagerly convert more than we now possess into means and powers, when we shall be willing to sow the sun and the moon for seeds.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Well, my closest friends are still the ones that I went to school with, but it’s nice to go to work, at the studios, and have people there that you’re willing to talk to and have a good conversation with.
Tom Felton
You have something to give and are willing to give it. You do this without fanfare or publicity, drawing attention to the God we worship, not yourselves, and with no thought of what you will receive.That’s what disciples do!.
Linda K. Burton
The act of willing this or that, of choosing among various courses of conduct, is central in the realm of ethics.
Corliss Lamont
I should be very willing to redress men wrongs, and rather check than punish crimes, had not Cervantes, in that all too true tale of Quixote, shown how all such efforts fail.
Lord Byron
The truth is the truth. What changes is what we know about it and what we’re willing to believe.
Jonathan Maberry
It’s not willing to settle for anything less than success.
The Miz
Have you ever started a path? No one seems willing to do this. We don’t mind using existing paths, but we rarely start new ones. Do it today. Start a path. Even if it doesn’t lead anywhere
George Carlin
I always felt called to serve, to empower and ennoble as many people as I could, teaching, truth-telling, exposing lies, bearing witness, and being willing to live and die for something bigger than yourself.
Cornel West
To have big success, you must have big dreams, and you must be willing to take a chance.
Sumner Redstone
We are far too willing to reject the belief that much of what we see in life is random.
Daniel Kahneman
What’s an ambush interview? You walk up to a fellow who you want to talk to, and he hasn’t been – he hadn’t been willing to talk to you before. You’ve sent him letters, and you’ve tried to talk to him on the phone. So you walk up to him on the street and ask him a question – that’s an ambush?
Mike Wallace
So I guess I’m a fool, I’m a fool in love. But I’m willing to stay here, and bask in the glory of his heart.
Rihanna
I’m happy to try any genre, from drama to comedy and anything in between. Although, to be fair, for most of my career, I’ve been at the mercy of what people are willing to put me in.
Chris Pratt
You need to understand that truth is stranger than fiction. Listen: people are willing to swallow any old tripe as long as you say it without flinching. They want to be told stuff. And they don’t want to doubt you either. It’s too hard.
Craig Silvey
We should never permit ourselves to do anything that we are not willing to see our children do.
Brigham Young
All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think. The trouble is that men very often resort to all sorts of devices in order not to think, because thinking is such hard work.
Thomas J. Watson
Ask yourself if you are in this for the long run-if it’s only your weight you want to change or if you are willing to use your eating patterns as a portal to the inner universe. And if the answer is the latter, then there is no end to what you can learn, be, understand, become.
Geneen Roth
The first rule of improv is ‘Never say no.’ Use it when co-writing. To co-write, you need to be willing to be vulnerable with each other. You need to be stupid with each other.
Chuck Cannon
I firmly believe that as voters come to learn more and more about John Kerry and learn more and more about his message that they’re going to want a President who is willing to address the fact that we didn’t have a post-war plan in Iraq.
Harold Ford, Jr.
As inequality grows, the basic bonds of social fraternity are fraying – as we discussed in regard to Occupy Wall Street. As tensions increase, people will become more willing to engage in protest. But that moment is not now.
Edward Snowden
I love him who is ashamed when the dice fall in his favour, and who then asketh: “Am I a dishonest player?” – for he is willing to succumb.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Eat what you want to eat, but just be willing to pay the price. If you know you want to eat more cake or more cookies, be willing to work out a lil bit more. I think that’s the problem people have is you want to eat bad, but yet you don’t want to pay the price to work it off.
Herschel Walker
I understand it. People are very willing to say things about me, to make accusations about me that are – I don’t get upset about them anymore, but they are very regrettable.
Hillary Clinton
Three Secrets to Success: Be willing to learn new things. Be able to assimilate new information quickly. Be able to get along with and work with other people.
Sally Ride
Many people who want to be great aren’t willing to do the work to make it possible!
Zig Ziglar
Actions are always more complex and nuanced than they seem. We have to be willing to wrestle with paradox in pursuing understanding.
Harold Evans
If I lose my life in a good cause I am willing to be sacrificed on the altar of virtue, righteousness and truth, in maintaining the laws and Constitution of the United States, if need be, for the general good of mankind.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
I want young people to ask me if I’m serious. Our young people have been lied to and misled for so long. When I stand on this soapbox, I want young people to ask me that because once they know I’m serious, they’ll be willing to ride with me.
Nate Parker
Why should antitrust laws be used to block mergers that the market, by the existence of willing buyers and sellers, shows to be desirable?
Henry Manne
Your only real choices are to open fully and receive their gifts or crucify them and be relieved of their force…But you must be willing to feel your heart’s terrors and wounds or else you will close and protect yourself, striking back at the source of openness you most yearn to become.
David Deida
Willing is not enough, we must do.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I’ve always liked to shoot from the hip. This is the perfect fit for me … I’m willing to earn my spurs, because once again, after 18 years I’m back to being a rookie.
Reggie Miller
Producers now look at the talent and if they believe that the director has the potential, they are willing to shell out the money irrespective of the gender.
Aishwarya R. Dhanush
If you want to investigate, we will be willing to assist.
Zhu Rongji
It often seems, looking back, that the unexpected comes to define us, the paths we didn’t see coming and may have wandered down by mistake. The older we get the more willing we are to follow those, to surprise ourselves.
Anna Quindlen
It may not be possible to get rare roast beef but if you’re willing to settle for well done, ask them to hold the sweetened library paste that passes for gravy.
Marian Burros
Everyone everywhere now understands how bad things have gotten — and they’re talking about it. They have the power to decide for themselves whether they are willing to sacrifice their privacy to the surveillance state.
Edward Snowden
We live in a world where joy is possible, love is possible, happiness is possible; where all things are possible, if we’re willing to take the time, take a chance, take a breath and step off the edge of everything that is for the sake of everything that might be.
Mira Grant
What good is success if you’re not willing to share it?
Karl Malone
To make a change, you must be: willing to commit, willing to change, willing to have an open mind, and willing to take action!

Robert Browning
Every human being whose mind is not debauched, will be willing to give all that he has to get knowledge.
Samuel Johnson
As an actor, you should be willing to take challenges.
Wilmer Valderrama
I feel that life is a series of very interesting questions, and very poor answers. But I myself am willing to settle for the questions. If the questions are interesting, I feel I evoke them in what I do. I feel that should be good enough for everyone else.
Jack Kirby
The model today is that as much as 70 percent of the financing of the picture would come from overseas. Now we’re beginning to run out of suckers, because there are not that many people overseas who are willing to put up more than half the money for a movie.
Peter Bart
An opinion is not necesarily correct just because you’re willing to die for it.
Oscar Wilde
I’m willing to submit to the sovereignty of the consumer, but I just want to know what they say.
Michael Hyatt
You have to always be ready, always be alive, and always be willing to move in a new direction.
Kevin Spacey
Winning is not everything, but wanting to win is.
Vince Lombardi
…perhaps the most distinguishing trait of visionary leaders is that they believe in a goal that benefits not only themselves, but others as well. It is such vision that attracts the psychic energy of other people, and makes them willing to work beyond the call of duty for the organization.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
I am willing to admit that if the agriculturists are oppressed by peculiar burdens, they ought to be relieved from them, or be allowed a fair and just protection equivalent to all such peculiar burdens.
Joseph Hume
I never want to lose the story-loving child within me, or the adolescent, or the young woman, or the middle-aged one, because all together they help me to be fully alive on this journey, and show me that I must be willing to go where it takes me, even through the valley of the shadow.
Madeleine L’Engle
I should think that people would be more interested in politics and all that is happening, rather than two lovebirds who are looking to wed. I think it’s very nice that in an age when love is so scarce that people are willing to gamble on getting married.
Yoko Ono
The difference between where we are and where we want to be is created by the changes we are willing to make in our lives. When you want something you’ve never had, you must do something you’ve never done to get it.
John C. Maxwell
Reasoned and willing obedience to the laws of the State is the first lesson in non-co-operation.
Mahatma Gandhi
A willing heart is the first step in finding God’s will in our lives. We cannot expect God to force us or to plead with us about the calling in our lives.
David Jeremiah
What you have to do and the way you have to do it is incredibly simple. Whether you are willing to do it is another matter.
Peter Drucker
You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.
Zig Ziglar
Only Christ can free us from the prison of legalism, and then only if we are willing to be freed.
Madeleine L’Engle
Clever and attractive women do not want to vote; they are willing to let men govern as long as they govern men.
George Bernard Shaw
If something feels right, I do it. If it feels wrong, I don’t. It’s really very, very simple, but you’ve got to be willing to take your chances doing stuff that may look crazy to other people – or not doing something that looks right to others but just feels wrong to you.
Oprah Winfrey
I see a funny guy who’s imperfect, but has a great heart and no vanity when it comes to what he’ll do to get a laugh. I see a guy who loves his art and loves his family, and who is willing to live and die for both.
Marlon Wayans
… we can no longer afford to throw away even one ‘unimportant’ day by not noticing the wonder of it all. We have to be willing to discover and then appreciate the authentic moments of happiness available to all of us every day.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
Our tradition in this country has not been to deny health information to interested individuals when they claim that they can handle it and are willing to pay for the cost of getting it.
Robert Shapiro
As a writer, you have to be willing to kill your darlings, and I’m a writer first. As a director, I’ve got no problem cutting the scenes.
David Ayer
He who wills believes with a fair amount of certainty that will and action are somehow one; he ascribes the success, the carrying out of the willing, to the will itself, and thereby enjoys an increase of the sensation of power which accompanies all success.
Friedrich Nietzsche
You’ve got to be who you are. You’ve got to be honest with people. If your views change on something, you’ve got to be willing to express it.
Rudy Giuliani
Mackie is an electronics recording company backing me, and they’re willing to invest giving equipment to schools that I choose, and they’ve already started doing that.
Meredith Brooks
If they’re willing to pay you what you think you’re worth for it, that’s why an actor goes to work. A lot of times they want to pay you a lot for a picture you don’t want to do.
Kurt Russell
If somebody wants to sit down with me for an hour and interview me and ask me any question about my record, my policies, my foreign policy experience, my domestic policy experience, I’m willing to do that.
John Kasich
I think one of the important evolutions is that we no longer feel compulsively the need to argue, or to justify things on a kind of rational level. We are much more willing to admit that certain things are completely instinctive and others are really intellectual.
Rem Koolhaas
The price of freedom is to allow freedom. Very few people are willing to pay the price.
Leonard Jacobson
Unless I am both capable of and willing to reopen the wound every time I write a song, if I choose to not look inside myself to write music, I’m really not worth being called an artist at all.
Lady Gaga
I make the most money, I think, in Russia and Paris, for the people of those countries are so willing to be amused, so eager to see something new and out of the ordinary.
Harry Houdini
The rewards go to the risk-takers, those who are willing to put their egos on the line and reach out to other people and to a richer, fuller life for themselves.
Susan RoAne
I’m always willing to have a conversation about strengthening our national security in a long-term, comprehensive, and cost-effective manner.
Abigail Spanberger
We’re guessing at our future opportunity cost. Warrenis guessing that he’ll have the opportunity to put capital out at high rates of return, so he’s not willing to put it out at less than 10% now. But if we knew interest rates would stay at 1%, we’d change. Our hurdles reflect our estimate of future opportunity costs.
Charlie Munger
If we really want to change the way Americans eat, we need to make delicious, sustainably-raised food accessible to everyone. Most people are not willing to sacrifice taste or pay a lot more when it comes to eating better. That’s why the Chipotle model is so important.
Steve Ells
You’re not looking for perfection in your partner. Perfection is all about the ego. With soulmate love, you know that true love is what happens when disappointment sets in – and you’re willing to deal maturely with these disappointments.
Karen Salmansohn
For the Raiders, I’m always going to be ready and willing to go there and talk to those players about whatever.
Charles Woodson
A snowflake is probably quite unconscious of forming a crystal, but what it does may be worth study even if we are willing to leave its inner mental processes alone.
Northrop Frye
As the president has said, if the United Nations will not disarm Saddam Hussein, it will be another international organization, a coalition of the willing that will be made up of numerous nations that will disarm Saddam Hussein.
Ari Fleischer
Well, dinner would have been splendid… if the wine had been as cold as the soup, the beef as rare as the service, the brandy as old as the fish, and the maid as willing as the Duchess.
Winston Churchill
Please don’t let it be another cop. I’m outta bail money. Wait a minute…I could sell you on eBay and make a killing. (Mark) Not in my current condition. You’d have to sell Caleb or Madaug. I’m sure there’s someone willing to buy two perfectly good white boys. (Nick)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
One thing I like about trying to write is that I can possibly write myself a role. Otherwise, you’re at the mercy of whatever roles are out there that people are willing to give to you.
Linda Cardellini
To feel not only submitted but willing to be anything or nothing as the Lord wills it – this is, in truth, to sing a song to our Well Beloved.
Charles Spurgeon
Most people are willing to take the Sermon on the Mount as a flag to sail under, but few will use it as a rudder by which to steer.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
Unless we perform divine service with every willing act of our life, we never perform it at all.
John Ruskin
Freedom has a price. Most people aren’t willing to pay it.
Jack Kevorkian
Most of my fundamentalist brothers and sisters – and I am an evangelical, so I can say most of my fundamentalist brothers and sisters – are quite willing to pack women off and send them as missionaries to dangerous places where they might get killed.
Tony Campolo
In the first place, any group of folks willing to make asses of themselves in pursuit of a good time should be commended and encouraged: The spirit of human frolic needs all the help it can get.
Molly Ivins
We tend to get in life what we are willing to tolerate.
John C. Maxwell
It’s only when we have nothing else to hold onto that we’re willing to try something very audacious and scary.
Sonia Johnson
The victorious Christian neither exalts nor downgrades himself. His interests have shifted from self to Christ. What he is or is not no longer concerns him. He believes that he has been crucified with Christ and he is not willing either to praise or deprecate such a man.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
There’s no evidence whatsoever that men are more rational than women or that men are more willing to surrender their irrational beliefs. Both sexes seem to be equally irrational.
Albert Ellis
Those who speculate from the shore about the ocean shall know only its surface, but those who would know the depths of the ocean must be willing to plunge into it.
Meher Baba
I think the future is whatever I’m willing to make it.
David Cook
Unless strategy evaluation is performed seriously and systematically, and unless strategists are willing to act on the results, energy will be used up defending yesterday.
Peter Drucker
You should only play pieces that you’re willing to marry.
Pepe Romero
I don’t have a fear factor. Well, not much of one. And I’m willing to risk quite a lot – as a comedian, you’re always risking a lot. You’re risking failure, especially if you’re improvising and going on TV shows trying to make comedy out of thin air. That is quite a risky business.
David Walliams
Every worthwhile accomplishment has a price tag attached to it. The question is always whether you are willing to pay the price to attain it – in hard work, sacrifice, patience, faith, and endurance.
John C. Maxwell
Let’s be under no illusions: There are attacks on, for example, transgender Americans from the Oval Office, picking on troops – people willing to lay down their lives for this country – not to mention teenagers in our high schools. So we’ve got to end the war on trans Americans.
Pete Buttigieg
Reasoning based on cost has been strenuously resisted; it violated the Hippocratic Oath, was associated with rationing, and derided as putting a price on life… Indeed, many physicians were willing to lie to get patients what they needed from insurance companies that were trying to hold down costs.
Ezekiel Emanuel
No man enjoys the true taste of life, but he who is ready and willing to quit it.
Seneca the Younger
It is superfluous to be humble on one’s own behalf; so many people are willing to do it for one.
Celia Green
I want to dig in before I finish with a career here in Congress – be known as someone who was a really serious legislator, who had really good ideas and was willing to work across the aisle to get broad consensus to solve some of these problems the country is facing.
Charles Boustany
In spreading his ideas, Plato was willing to employ emotional appeals, state propaganda, and the use of force.
Bertrand Russell
It is easy enough to vote right and be consistently with the majority. But it is more often more important to be ahead of the majority and this means being willing to cut the first furrow in the ground and stand alone for a while if necessary.
Patsy Mink
You’ll find that education’s about the only thing lying around loose in this world, and that it’s about the only thing a fellow can have as much of as he’s willing to haul away. Everything else is screwed down tight and the screw-driver lost.
George Horace Lorimer
Humility means you’re willing to give someone a bigger slice of the pie.
Frederick Lenz
It’s a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. The only variable is about what. The weird thing about telling someone they’re dying is it tends to focus their priorities. You find out what matters to them. What they’re willing to die for… What they’re willing to lie for.
David Shore
Your perceptions are often far more accurate than you are willing to believe.
Claudia Black
Every step you take will feel as if you were treading upon knife blades so sharp that blood must flow. I am willing to help you, but are you willing to suffer all this?” “Yes,” the little mermaid said in a trembling voice, as she thought of the Prince and of gaining a human soul.
Hans Christian Andersen
We were willing to do so much for the people we loved, even if it meant hurting ourselves. Maybe that, in the end, was what love- all kinds- was really about.
Sarah Dessen
The collegiate idealists who fill the ranks of the environmental movement seem willing to do absolutely anything to save the biosphere, except take science courses and learn something about it.
P. J. O’Rourke
To prepare for the future, we must be willing to test new concepts. This means we must acquire enough information to evaluate these concepts and not be like travelers in a foreign land who compare everything with their own hometown.
Jacque Fresco
Invest in yourself first. Expect nothing from no one and be willing to work for everything.
Tony Gaskins
Too often in our communities many families have not even been aware that certain charities exist; and at the same time, there are many who are willing to volunteer their energy and their resources to help these charities, yet they do not know these charities even exist.
Dana Rohrabacher
If you ever had anyone in your life who has been struggling with addiction or struggling with anything, it’s about the resilience of love and how much you’re willing to struggle with somebody to preserve your relationship and to try to preserve them as a person – and I think that’s really important.
Sarah Gadon
Make sure you meet the right people, people who know that industry and are willing to help you. Do your homework – read books about the industry, talk to people. If you don’t know something, ask.
Anwar Robinson
No one can get inner peace by pouncing on it, by vigorously willing to have it … Peace is a consciousness of springs too deep for earthly droughts to dry up. Peace is the gift not of volitional struggle but of spiritual hospitality.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
God is willing to walk the earth again incarnate in us.
Eugenia Price
Because this business of becoming conscious, of being a writer, is ultimately about asking yourself, How alive am I willing to be?
Anne Lamott
One of the reasons I’m in this business is because I have absolute respect for the people who say, “You know what? I think I can make this a little better and I’m willing to get in and try.” Because, I’ll tell you, there are a hell of a lot of reasons to stay away from running for office today.
Roger Ailes
Even with revivals, I dont really pay attention to previous incarnations. I always just go with the script and with the director and am willing to treat it as brand new.
Kate Baldwin
The moment that you are willing to step outside of tomorrow, outside of needing more time, or having more time, everything becomes possible. And you may finally notice where the Buddha has always been.
Adyashanti
Loving and perishing: it’s been a rhyme all these eternities. The will to love: that is, also being willing to die.
Friedrich Nietzsche
The answers come when you are quietly willing to be without them.
Vernon Howard
If you can get out there and say I’m going to…I’m willing to fail at what I feel is right, that’s it.
Dustin Hoffman
When your ship comes in, make sure you are willing to unload it
Robert Anthony
He’d always been willing to confess his faults, for, by admitting them, it was as if he made them no longer exist.
Truman Capote
Prime Minister Benjamin Netyanahu made it real clear. They’re willing to be generous on some other concessions but not on the border issue. And I don’t blame him.
Herman Cain
Oil companies are radical because they’re willing to alter the chemical composition of the atmosphere.
Bill McKibben
You don’t go into coaching if you’re not willing to step into that moment and go, ‘OK, this is what it’s going to take, and this is why you do it.’ Everything hinges on winning and losing, right?
Jill Ellis
Women of all classes are awakening to the necessity of self-support, but few are willing to do the ordinary useful work for which they are fitted.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Conservatives are tougher. They fight harder, they fight for their own, and they’re willing to win for themselves and they’re willing to impose pain on the opposition. Liberals are much less willing to do that. They’re much more – they would much rather give to everybody.
Thomas B. Edsall
He who is surety is never sure himself. Take advice, and never be security for more than you are quite willing to lose. Remember the word of the wise man: He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it; and he that hateth suretyship is sure.
Charles Spurgeon
It is the man that has nothing to lose or is willing to lose everything to beat you that I am afraid of. If a man is willing to lose his life to bite off my nose then I don’t care how good I am or what I do to him- he’s gonna get my nose.
Bruce Lee
You know something is important when you’re willing to let someone else take the credit if that’s what it takes to get it done.
Seth
My definition of good is that you understand that this is a question of power. That you be willing to give up some power. That you be willing to give up some resources.
Sister Souljah
You can learn new things at any time in your life if you’re willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you.
Barbara Sher
I have read for countless people on innumerable subjects and the most difficult thing to understand within the cards is always the timing. I knew that, and still it surprised me. How long I was willing to wait for something that was only a possibility. I always thought it was just a matter of time but I was wrong.
Erin Morgenstern
Yes, we love peace, but we are not willing to take wounds for it, as we are for war.
John Holmes
Peace can endure only so long as humanity really insists upon it, and is willing to work for it and sacrifice for it.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I Iove a dancer who is willing to take risks with their body and go that extra mile to move the audience.
Arlene Phillips
Yosemite Park… None can escape its charms. Its natural beauty cleans and warms like a fire, and you will be willing to stay forever in one place like a tree.
John Muir
Am I willing to give up what I have in order to be what I am not yet? Am I willing to let my ideas of myself, of man be changed? Am I able to follow the spirit of love into the desert? To empty myself even of my concept of emptiness?
Mary Caroline Richards
My philosophy is, don’t take no for an answer and be willing to sacrifice your entire project for freedom.
Tim Robbins
Someone who lies for you will also lie to you. The occasional benefit your business may gain from a successful deception or concealment is always outweighed by the encouragement it provides to those willing to risk trust for success.
Michael Josephson
Today, the Iraqi citizen sees that America is coming and wants to occupy his country and kill him, and he is willing to experience for himself what happened in Palestine.
Bashar al-Assad
In the age-old contest between popularity and principle, only those willing to lose for their convictions are deserving of posterity’s approval.
Gerald R. Ford
When you have something in life that you want to accomplish greatly, you have to be willing to give up your happiness…I’ve lost all my sensitivity as far as being embarrassed, being shy, you just have to lose that.
Mike Tyson
There’s never been a lack of men willing to die bravely. The trouble is to find a few able to live sensibly.
Winifred Holtby
When I was 15, I worked at a dry cleaner because I wanted Abercrombie & Fitch jeans. My mom told me I could have $20 jeans, not $70 jeans, unless I was willing to work for them. So I did!
Ashley Greene
Trauma creates one of four types of people: victims, rescuers, or perps – and if you’re really lucky and really strong and very willing and brave, survivors.
Allison Anders
You should be willing to do something that will take you five minutes or less for anybody.
Adam Rifkin
Salvation for our educational ills… will have to come from within an educational community willing to say we have met the enemy and it is us.
Seymour Sarason
I truly believe that a woman can have anything she wants – if she’s willing to do the hard work it takes to get it.
Oprah Winfrey
Activists must be admired for the sacrifices they are willing to make for those things they hold dear. I would say those kinds of ways of looking at life enrich the value of life, and that is a good thing.
Mark Ruffalo
I am willing to compete on my merits and on my character – not with the color of my skin. We talk about being a color-blind society, but I don’t think the political process could actually handle that.
J. C. Watts
People who are not willing to respect not only the given law, but our democratic way of life, should not live in Europe.
Vera Jourova
A core value is something you’re willing to get punished for.
Patrick Lencioni
An American worker should not expect his pay to be cut because somebody comes to this country illegally and is willing to work for less than he or she should be paid.
Gary Miller
Poets should speak out against what we see as the assault against our Constitution and the warmongering that’s going on. I’m perfectly willing to lay down my life for my Constitution, but I am not willing to take a life for it or any other reason because I think killing people is counterproductive.
Sam Hamill
No matter how hard you work for your money, there’s always someone out there willing to work twice as hard to take it away from you.
J. Willard Marriott
I’m not willing to sign a contract. They want everything. They want the rights to do the movie and everything else they can think of, forever. There’s no limit to the contract. In this universe and universes to be discovered – I’m not making this up – this is in the contract.
Isabel Allende
You’ve got to make tough decisions, sometimes unpopular decisions… Whatever it is, if it’s the right move at the right time, you’ve got to be also willing to make mistakes.
Sean McDermott
Bob, would you be willing to take on Evil Bob?” Bob’s eyes darted nervously. “I’d . . . prefer not to. I’d really, really prefer not to. You have no idea. That me was crazy. And buff. He worked out.
Jim Butcher
I believe that when you stop renewing and are no longer open to change and the possibilities that continually unfold, you stop being alive and are just getting through the years. Transformation doesn’t happen unless you’re willing: It’s your choice.
Oprah Winfrey
Education must become central to any viable notion of politics willing to imagine a life and future outside of casino capitalism.
Henry Giroux
Treasure nothing, be willing to throw out anything. The story you just wrote that you are proud of should not be coddled and worshipped. You can do it again. If your house burned down with all your work inside it, you would still be the writer you are, and you would continue to be worth something.
J. Robert Lennon
Willing sets you free: that is the true doctrine of will and freedom–thus Zarathustra instructs you.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Sometimes it’s the toughest moments that you learn the most about yourself, and the more you know yourself, the less you are willing to give away.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
The prayer of faith is a prayer willing to believe and prevail for God’s answer in a situation that is utterly impossible. Regardless of the difficulty of the situation, you require no external confirmation but believe God in spite of appearance. Your eyes are on God, not on the situation.
Wesley L Duewel
My message is, you can accomplish anything, not just on the athletic field, if you’re willing to work pay the price. It doesn’t matter what your age.
Herschel Walker
Democracy comes naturally to him who is habituated normally to yield willing obedience to all laws, human or divine.
Mahatma Gandhi
People today are in danger of drowning in information; but, because they have been taught that information is useful, they are more willing to drown than they need be. If they could handle information, they would not have to drown at all.
Idries Shah
The number of people in the world engaged in this search for catastrophic impactors totals one or two dozen. How long into the future are you willing to protect Homo sapiens on Earth? Before you answer that question, take a detour to Arizona’s Meteor Crater during your next vacation.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
What I’ve realized is that life doesn’t count for much unless you’re willing to do your small part to leave our children — all of our children — a better world. Any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make you a father. It’s the courage to raise a child that makes you a father.
Barack Obama
All wish to be learned, but no one is willing to pay the price.
Juvenal
I realized I wasn’t going to find a man until I was willing to expose myself to possible harm, to assume the risks of rejection and betrayal and heartbreak that came along with caring about someone. Someday, I promised myself, I would be ready for that kind of risk.
Lisa Kleypas
It’s about taking advantage of the opportunities you have right now, and right now we’re in a position where you call somebody and they’re willing to pick up and take the call because they’re a fan, you have to take advantage of that and have a chance to capitalize on your ideas.
Dwyane Wade
If things are ever to move upward, some one must take the first step, and assume the risk of it. No one who is not willing to try charity, to try non-resistance as the saint is always willing, can tell whether these methods will or will not succeed.
William James
I think that’s the only way you can ever be truly successful in this world. You have to acknowledge that it is from above. And you have to have the confidence that even if you lose it all, things will be okay. You have to be willing to fail, and all the while work your tail off to succeed.
Willie Robertson
That man is best who sees the truth himself. Good too is he who listens to wise counsel. But who is neither wise himself nor willing to ponder wisdom is not worth a straw.
Hesiod
People in the real world would kill for a happily ever after, and you’re willing to just throw it away ?” I look away from her. “It’s hardly a happily ever after when you wind up right at the beginning.
Jodi Picoult
One should accept failure, and be willing to learn, unlearn and relearn again.
Ritesh Agarwal
Any change of government which has to be introduced should be one which men, starting from their existing constitutions, will be both willing and able to adopt, since there is quite as much trouble in the reformation of an old constitution as in the establishment of a new one, just as to unlearn is as hard as to learn.
Aristotle
It is inconceivable that even the gang who runs Russia would be willing to take on war, but one always has to remember that there seemed to be no reason in 1939 for Hitler to start war, and yet he did, and he started it with a world practically unprepared.
James Forrestal
Intuitive diagnosis is reliable when people have a lot of relevant feedback. But people are very often willing to make intuitive diagnoses even when they’re very likely to be wrong.
Daniel Kahneman
It’s my job that if somebody wants to have a discussion about something, I’m certainly sensitive to that, and I’m willing to do it.
Joe Torre
We like to be punks. We like to still be kind of edgy and if being edgy means you might teeter on that line of being inappropriate, I’m still willing to teeter on that line, even at my age. But some of them go over that line and you’ve gotta draw that line somewhere.
Milo Aukerman
The future is meant for those who are willing to let go of the worst parts of the past. When you cannot take two steps without turning around to inspect your footsteps, you are getting nowhere fast.
Corey Taylor
If you’re regularly willing to give a critique, but not willing to take one, you’re not a leader, you’re a cynic.
Ed Stetzer
I am always willing to share my perspective and my personal experience and my journey.
Bethenny Frankel
Fanatics can justify practically any atrocity to themselves. The more untenable their position becomes, the harder they hold to it, and the worse the things they are willing to do to support it.
Mercedes Lackey
It all comes down to who is by your side and who is willing to stand up for love even when it seems impossible.
Nicholas Sparks
Be who you are. But be the very best communicator you can possibly be. To do that you must be willing to sacrifice what’s comfortable-what has become part of your style-for the sake of what is effective.
Andy Stanley
No matter if I’m booting extra points, kicking off, punting… whatever. I can kick things far, and I’m willing to do whatever the Colts ask of me.
Pat McAfee
A salute from this corner to President Bush for saying he was willing to investigate raising or eliminating the cap on salaries subject to the Social Security tax.
Nick Clooney
I’m not willing just to be tolerated. That wounds my love of love and of liberty.
Jean Cocteau
Peru is a country where more than half the people would emigrate if given the chance. That’s half the population that is willing to abandon everything they know for the uncertainty of a life in a foreign land, in another language.
Daniel Alarcon
My dad has sometimes felt that I grew up a little lacking in sufficient eccentricity – in the sense that I’m willing to live as an adult in a house with walls that are parallel to each other, that sort of thing.
Jaron Lanier
When your way doesn’t work, don’t be disheartened. You must be willing to try another way. A closed door doesn’t mean you have been cut off permanently. It is a challenge, an obstacle, a tool to be used.
Iyanla Vanzant
People cannot be free unless they are willing to sacrifice some of their interests to guarantee the freedom of others. The price of democracy is the ongoing pursuit of the common good by all of the people.
Saul Alinsky
You get to a point where you have to start planning, when you cross that line where you have enough value to get someone’s movie made if you attach yourself to it, you have to be very thoughtful and have to plan. When you’re starting out, you’re willing to do anything.
Chris Pratt
Nobody stands taller than those willing to stand corrected.
William Safire
Who else is willing to fight Woodley at six weeks’ notice? Nobody. That’s why it’s come to me. But I will dethrone the champion and start a new era. I’ll be an active champion, so they can all get in line.
Darren Till
willing me to understand: that people should be sacrificed to causes, that beauty can be built on the backs of the dead.
Lauren Oliver
I’ve always felt that if something is polarizing, that’s usually the stuff I like the most. If something is taking a chance and is willing to be weird, that’s my favorite thing. I know there’s somebody out there who hates it.
Andy Samberg
People who are willing to get off their arse to search the entire room for the TV remote because they refuse to walk to the TV and change the channel manually.
Billy Connolly
I think that I am willing to risk my life in order to have more freedom.
Penn Jillette
The soldier is willing to give their life, perhaps for someone they never even met in their country. That’s a very high love.

Ginuwine
Love means to be willing to give until it hurts.
Mother Teresa
When you are willing to stop looking for something in thought, you find everything in silence.
Gangaji
True leaders must be willing to suffer for the sake of objectives great enough to demand their wholehearted obedience.
J. Oswald Sanders
Now we really like to put people in boxes. As men, we do it because we don’t understand characters that aren’t ourselves and we aren’t willing to put ourselves in the skin of those characters and women, I think, terrify us. We tend not to write women as human beings. It’s cartoons we’re making now. And that’s a shame.
Paul Haggis
You have to struggle a bit, hustle a little, and be willing to go bankrupt. Once you’re willing to do that, everything opens up and you get the freedom. My joke is that next year, I’ll make the first film that costs zero dollars.
Nick Nolte
It’ll work, if God, wind, leads, ice, snow, and all the hells of this damned frozen land are willing.
Matthew Henson

We need to be willing to stand up and speak up for what we believe.
Benjamin Carson
Be willing to make decisions. That’s the most important quality in a good leader.

Boxing, for me, it’s the beginning of all sports. I’m willing to bet that the first sport was a man against another man in a fight, so I think that’s something innate in all of us.
Omar Epps
I am all for cultural diversity and would be willing to see each recognizable group value its cultural heritage. I am a New York patriot, for instance, and if I lived in Los Angeles, I would love to get together with other New York expatriates and sing “Give My Regards to Broadway”.
Isaac Asimov
Be willing to commit yourself to a course, perhaps a long and hard one, without being able to foresee exactly where you will come out.

Yoga teaches us that we can have whatever we may want in life if we are willing to provide it for others first.
Sharon Gannon
Who’s willing to face the unknown- the difficulties, the disappointments, the surprises of the unfamiliar. If you’re going to change, you have to face those things, and who’s able? Who has the skillful means, the knowhow, the perseverance, the help, the fortitude to keep going?
Surya Das
For what war should we not be fit and eager, even though unequal in numbers, we who are so willing to be slaughtered-if, according to that discipline of ours, it was not more lawful to be slain than to slay?
Tertullian
Unless you’re willing to look a little foolish, forget the possibility of becoming great.
Cher
Southwest isn’t a ‘This is my job, that’s your job’ kind of company. Being successful is our job, and we’re willing to do whatever it takes to achieve that.
Herb Kelleher
We can leave our legacy only if we are willing to change – to go beyond partisan labels, and to solve the problems facing Washingtonians.
Christine Gregoire
Maybe this is just some stupid romantic South American idea, but I need you to understand-darling, for you, I am even willing to suffer. Whatever pain happens to us in the future, I accept it already, just for the pleasure of being with you now. Let’s enjoy this time. It’s marvelous. Felipe-Eat, Pray, Love
Elizabeth Gilbert
All the problems of the world could be settled easily if men were only willing to think.
Tom Watson
You can’t do things unexpected in life if you’re not willing to take a risk, and it’s easier to risk your own life than it is for your parent to watch you take risks. It’s very, very hard for parents to see children doing things that aren’t a solid path. I’ve been through that.
Lisa Edelstein
Recognizing and confronting our history is important. Transcending our history is essential. We are not limited by what we have done, or what we have left undone. We are limited only by what we are willing to do.
George W. Bush
In every issue there are winners are losers, and the losers are plenty. But they have to be willing to grudgingly accept the result. That’s the genius of our democracy.
Dick Gephardt
The Church needs more people willing to wash feet, not just point out they’re dirty or complain that they smell.
Mark Hart
I used to have a fake Louis Vuitton bag because I thought it meant something in life. But now I realize that all the things in the world don’t define you. It’s what you stand for, what you’re willing to do, how close to the truth you’re willing to be in your life.
Oprah Winfrey
To be a value investor, you have to be willing [and able] to suffer pain.
Jean-Marie Eveillard
The difference between me and people like Murray Rothbard is that, though I want to know what my ideal is, I think I also have to be willing to discuss changes that are less than ideal so long as they point me in that direction.
Milton Friedman
The world is full of happiness, and plenty to go round, if you are only willing to take the kind that comes your way.
Jean Webster
The first thing we need allies to do is listen. Come to us with a willingness to grow and evolve. You’re going to make mistakes, and that’s fine, but be willing to listen and grow from those mistakes. I think that’s the most important trait an ally can have.
Sarah McBride
People who earn the label “creative” are really just people who
come up with more combinations of ideas, find interesting ones faster,
and are willing to try them out. The problem is that most schools
and organizations train us out of those habits.
Guy Kawasaki
The American dream always meant that anybody willing to put in a hard day’s work could make a decent living. That’s just not true anymore for people without at least some post-high school education.
Adam Davidson
If information is true, if it can be verified, and if it’s really important, the newspaper needs to be willing to take the risk associated with using unidentified sources.

Hillary Clinton
You have to reach deep within yourself to see if you are willing to make the sacrifices.
Louis Zamperini
I have witnessed boards that continued to waste money on doomed projects because no one was prepared to admit they were failures, take the blame and switch course. Smaller outfits are more willing to admit mistakes and dump bad ideas.
Luke Johnson
If all you boast of your great art be true; Sure, willing poverty lives most in you.
Ben Jonson
The mind, ever the willing servant, will respond to boldness, for boldness, in effect, is a command to deliver mental resources.
Norman Vincent Peale
It’s one of those things, like in sports and other situations in life, you’re going to have some adversities and some challenges that are similar to the race. You go uphill one moment and then you go downhill, but that’s life too. You’ve got to be willing to sometimes take it slow but keep going.
Zdeno Chara
You have to be willing to out-condition your opponents.
Bear Bryant
What I know for sure is this: The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal for this year is, you can get there – as long as you’re willing to be honest with yourself about the preparation and work involved. There are no back doors, no free rides. There’s just you, this moment, and a choice.
Oprah Winfrey
In an age in which economists take for granted that people equate well-being with consumption, increasing numbers of people seem willing to trade certain freedoms and material comforts for a sense of immutable order and the rapture of faith.
Eugene Linden
Personally, I’ve been hearing all my life about the Serious Philosophical Issues posed by life extension, and my attitude has always been that I’m willing to grapple with those issues for as many centuries as it takes.
Patrick Hayden
Be generous with your colleagues and your competitors. When people learn that they do well whenever they work with you, they will be more willing to come to you with opportunities.
Mark M. Ford
Science transcends mere politics. As recent history demonstrates, scientists are as willing to work for a Tojo, a Hitler, or a Stalin as for the free nations of the West.
Edward Abbey
The price of liberty is, always has been, and always will be blood. The person who is not willing to die for his liberty has already lost it to the first scoundrel who is willing to risk dying to violate that person’s liberty. Are you free?
Andrew W. Ford
Because it is possible to create – creating one’s self, willing to be one’s self – one has anxiety. One would have no anxiety if there were no possibility whatever.
Maria Popova
The fundamental difference between the mystery story and the ghost story is the fact that a mystery demands a solution for its effectiveness; a ghost story is necessarily unsolvable; the reader must be willing to accept the fact that nothing is proved.
Bennett Cerf
Getting service right is more than just a nice to do; it’s a must do. American consumers are willing to spend more with companies that provide outstanding service – ultimately, great service can drive sales and customer loyalty.
Jim Bush
Your self-image is the result of all you have given your subconscious mind as a database, so regardless of your background, what you are willing to become is the only reality that counts.
Paul J. Meyer
If you are willing to experience anything directly and immediately, whether good or bad, joyous or hateful,
you will recognize that what you are running from does not exist,
and what you are running toward is already here.
Gangaji
I don’t know Bill Clinton as someone who needs to literally sexually harass a woman. I’m sure that he could have found many willing participants.
Gennifer Flowers
We are all brothers under the skin – and I, for one, would be willing to skin humanity to prove it.
Ayn Rand
Sure I loved him – too much. And he loved me, only not enough. I just want someone who thinks I’m number one in his life. I’m not willing to accept emotional scraps anymore.
Amy Tan
If we are to reach certainty and true autonomy of realization, we need to be willing to be heretics. What’s more, we need to become universal heretics, not believing anything that we do not know from direct experience, beyond stories, beyond hearsay, and even beyond the mind.
A. H. Almaas
I’m willing to make compromises based on someone I think is the one, but I think it’s psychologically important to people when they’re famous to be the only famous person they know.
John Mayer
In war, the chief incalculable is the human will.
B. H. Liddell Hart
William Carey chides his countrymen for deciding it would be impossible for the Gospel to travel over great distances and to penetrate varied cultures when they are willing to face the same trials for the sake of commerce.
William Carey
Some people want everything to be perfect before they’re willing to commit… But commitment always precedes achievement.
John C. Maxwell

that can provide employment for everyone able and willing to work.
Felix Rohatyn
Kids are capable of handling a lot more than you think if you are willing to commit some time.
David Hartman
Acting is a really strange thing. You have to know when you’re put in a bad situation, but you also have to be willing to do something very strange.
Alexandra Daddario
The president [Barack Obama] is not willing to send in apaches and spotters if the Iraqis say they don’t want them and if it means that these Shia mobilization forces are going to be going after and trying to kill Americans.
Adam Schiff
Undocumented aliens unfortunately are not protected by the law and they are tremendously subjected to exploitation. The result is that they would be willing to work for a wage that no person who is welcome in our shores would take.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Still, small heavenly voices penetrate the heart with their gentle, convincing declarations… Most often, hope, encouragement, and direction come from a soft, piercing voice. Small voices are heard only by those who are willing to listen.
Marvin J. Ashton
That iPad you just bought. Do you care that it cost a few pence to manufacture? No. It’s cost you several hundred pounds because somebody else was willing to pay that much for it. If they weren’t… it wouldn’t.
Ian Watson
The State, in choosing men to serve it, takes no notice of their opinions. If they be willing faithfully to serve it, that satisfies.
Oliver Cromwell
I am willing to lend that hand, I will continue to stay involved with my charities as long as they need me.
Laura San Giacomo
ORU is a daring new concept in higher education. It was planned to be from the beginning, one that would be able and willing to innovate change in all three basic aspects of your being – the intellectual, the physical and the spiritual.
Oral Roberts
Lips half-willing in a doorway. Lips half-singing at a window. Eyes half-dreaming in the walls. Feet half-dancing in a kitchen. Even the clocks half-yawn the hours And the farmers make half-answers.
Carl Sandburg
If you want to be the best, you have to do things that other people aren’t willing to do.
Michael Phelps
I don’t think you earn the right to a message until you’ve earned it by having a real fight, really being willing to stand up for what you believe in.
Sheldon Whitehouse
You have to be willing to grow. Growth is different from something that happens to you: You produce it. You live it. The prerequisites for growth are the openness to experience events and the willingness to be changed by them.
Bruce Mau
You have to be willing to give a lot to be in a relationship with me because a lot of the time it’s about me.
Martha Wainwright
A curious thought experiment. . . Nietzsche’s message to us was to live life in such a way that we would be willing to repeat the same life eternally
Irvin D. Yalom
Of what value is your life, unless you are willing to sacrifice it for those you love?
Wayne Gerard Trotman
History is driven, over the long haul, by culture – by what men and women honor, cherish, and worship; by what societies deem to be true and good, and by the expressions they give to those convictions in language, literature, and the arts; by what individuals and societies are willing to stake their lives on.
George Weigel
The kingdom of God which is within us consists in our willing whatever God wills, always, in every thing, and without reservation; and thus His kingdom comes; for His will is then done as it is in heaven, since we will nothing but what is dictated by His sovereign pleasure.
Francois Fenelon
There are plenty of people who are willing to pay $2.6 million for 30 seconds on the Super Bowl and hundreds of thousands of dollars for ‘American Idol.’ There will be advertising dollars on the Internet. We’re there as well. We win either way.
Leslie Moonves
Death is not a stalker, always looking for us. Death is a scorekeeper tallying up how much we love life and how much we are willing to work for it. We die when we stop living.
Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz
We are willing to uphold principles that have resulted in unprecedented prosperity and security throughout Europe and around the world. With the threat of climate change only becoming more urgent, Angela [Merkel] and I focused on the need for American and E.U. leadership to advance global cooperation.
Barack Obama
When I think about the holidays, I think about the Salvation Army guys ringing bells in front of stores. They’re always so nice to you and they’re always willing to give a heart to heart conversation. They actually bear the winter cold to ask for your petty cash with a smile on their face. Fudge those guys.
Zach Braff
It is not as common as female/male prostitution, but yes my friends and I had female clients. But this is a request that most girls are not willing to do. No, we never saw it as anything different, because if ladies were paying for an escort, they were still considered our clients, and they were treated as such.
Annie Lobert
I guess if one set of my books was selling like Stephen King’s, and the other wasn’t selling at all, editors would want me to do the ones that sold like Stephen King’s. But they seem to be willing to let me pick what I want to do next.
Fred Saberhagen
Every child a wanted child; every mother a willing mother.
Henry Morgentaler
General revenue – what taxpayers are willing to give government, what they think is fair to give government – is not going to grow at the same amount that the federal government basically forces us to spend on Medicaid.
Rick Scott
It’s only those who are persistent and willing to study things deeply, who achieve the master work.

great things are possible to you.
Grenville Kleiser
You can accomplish virtually anything if you want it badly enough and if you are willing to work long enough and hard enough.

Adam Hamilton
People have to allow themselves to be used by God and Martin [Luther King, Jr.] committed himself totally to God’s will and purpose and God is always waiting for someone who is willing to do that.

John Gruber
I can grow as a leader only if I’m willing to accept feedback.
Jennifer Hyman
I’m a Mormon, but I share your faith in the atonement of the savior, Jesus Christ. In my faith, we have a guy who gave his life for what he believed in. You don’t have to believe it; I’m not asking you to. I’m asking you, “What is it that you believe? Are you willing to give your life?”
Glenn Beck
I’m more patriotic than I am political – I appreciate politics but I’m not quite too sure if that’s a road I’m willing to go down.
Dwayne Johnson
… the good are not willing to rule either for the sake of money or of honor.
Plato

Moshe Katsav
If people are willing to buy it and listen to it and they like it and enjoy it, then it’s viable.
Dan Fogelberg
Maybe you’re not perfect, but you’re willing to actually look at yourself and take some kind of accountability. That’s a change. It might not mean that you can turn everything around, but I think there’s something incredibly hopeful about that.
Brie Larson
Rich people are willing to promote themselves and their value. Poor people think negatively about selling and promotion.
T. Harv Eker
You can’t succeed unless you’re willing to risk failure
Raymond E. Feist
I felt as if I learned a few things. I learned that it’s sometimes okay to think like a weenie, so long as you don’t act like one—at least not all the time. I learned that it’s okay to be wrong, as long as you can admit it and are willing to listen to those who may know better.
D. J. MacHale
What many commentators have missed in the ongoing attack on Edward Snowden is not that he uncovered information that made clear how corrupt and intrusive the American government has become – how willing it is to engage in vast crimes against the American public.
Henry Giroux
So long as we have enough people in this country willing to fight for their rights, we’ll be called a democracy.

Everyone wants to be strong and self sufficient, but few are willing to put in the work necessary to achieve worthy goals.
Mahatma Gandhi
Everything is similar if you’re willing to look far out of focus.
Marvin Minsky
We have a double standard, which is to say, a man can show how much he cares by being violent-see, he’s jealous, he cares-a woman shows how much she cares by how much she’s willing to be hurt; by how much she will take; how much she will endure; how suicidal she’s prepared to be.
Andrea Dworkin
To worship God in truth is further to admit that we are entirely contrary to Him, and that He is willing to make us like Himself if we desire it. Who will be so imprudent as to turn himself away, even for a moment, from the reverence, love, service and continual adoration which we most justly owe Him?
Brother Lawrence
I believe that we should be able to marry whom ever we choose. As long as both people are willing… I say go for it!
Fefe Dobson
I took one glance at her in that hospital bed under the dull light and recognised the look on her face, which I’d seen on donors often enough before. It was like she was willing her eyes to see right inside herself, so she could patrol and marshal all the better the separate areas of pain in her body.
Kazuo Ishiguro
A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done.
Vince Lombardi
But most of all, what really attracted me to her was her manner. She laughed a lot, and it’s easy to fall for someone who can find humor in any situation. She was also intelligent, well read, and well spoken, willing to listen and confident in her beliefs. And most of all, she was warm.
Nicholas Sparks
Israel is a country of six million people. They need the U.S. It used to be bipartisan on Israeli politics. You never messed with that relationship. The fact that [ Benjamin] Netanyahu is willing to do that, I thought would horrify voters more than it turned out it did.
David Brooks
Each morning my characters greet me with misty faces willing, though chilled, to muster for another day’s progress through the dazzling quicksand the marsh of blank paper.
John Updike
There is price you pay when you want freedom of speech. You must be willing to accept the good the bad and the ugly when trying something out of the box.
Sunny Leone
So what am I willing to do? Do my work heartily, unto the Lord. There is no higher accountability in life than to do something for God. So that’s kind of how I operate.
Mark Richt
Leadership rests not only upon ability, not only upon capacity; having the capacity to lead is not enough. The leader must be willing to use it. His leadership is then based on truth and character. There must be truth in the purpose and will power in the character.
Vince Lombardi
The support is absolutely crucial. If you have the right people helping you in the lead up to a major event, then you know when you’re lining up to start the race you have them there with you, willing you on. And I’m not only referring to the coaches, mechanics, physios, administrators, but also family and friends.
Chris Hoy
You have to be willing to be afraid if you’re going to be an artist.
Carmen Ejogo
It’s being willing to walk away that gives you strength and power – if you’re willing to accept the consequences of doing what you want to do.
Whoopi Goldberg
God takes our misery and suffering so seriously that he was willing to take it on himself.
Timothy Keller
When you’re challenged to the extreme, you learn so much about yourself. And when you’re willing to give that ultimate sacrifice, when you’re willing to tackle a job or a task or a mission head-on and give 100%, you can achieve amazing things because you’re almost fearless.
Ant Middleton
The most essential thing in dance discipline is devotion, the steadfast and willing devotion to the labor that makes the classwork not a gymnastic hour and a half, or at the lowest level, a daily drudgery, but a devotion that allows the classroom discipline to become moments of dancing too.
Merce Cunningham
He who threatens us will find us deaf to his threats. We are willing to listen only to rational arguments.
Menachem Begin
I am willing to love all of mankind, except an American.
Samuel Johnson

Hugh Hammond Bennett
Acting is about going into the space, and there are just some places that I’m not willing to go.
Oprah Winfrey
The only advice I can give to aspiring writers is don’t do it unless you’re willing to give your whole life to it. Red wine and garlic also helps.
Jim Harrison
Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.
Pablo Picasso
What objectivity and the study of philosophy requires is not an ‘open mind,’ but an active mind – a mind able and eagerly willing to examine ideas, but to examine them criticially.
Ayn Rand
I want to be one that is willing to do things that are not easy but that need to be done.
Mike Lee
Since becoming a BBC breakfast presenter I have been paid four-figure sums for doing hour-long speeches for associations and at awards dinners. That has been an eye-opener. I am surprised by how much people are willing to pay TV celebrities to do that kind of stuff.
Steph McGovern
You a role model by way of someone will model after your role. They’ll model themselves after what they perceive is success. That doesn’t mean they take your morality and virtue seriously. They want what you want, and they’re willing to do what you do to get it.
Killer Mike
I’m just trying to work out a way to be a singer and to create cool content. I’m willing to do that as an entertainer. But I’m not willing to give up my actual self.

Thomas a Kempis
Connect with all the passions people have – for themselves, their families, their communities and wider world – and they will follow you to the ends of the earth, buy your products and services with pride, and may even be willing to work for you for next to nothing.
Patrick Dixon
In the long run we get no more than we have been willing to risk giving.
Sheldon B. Kopp
Basically, unless you’re willing to write down debts and save the economy, you’re going to have deflation and a steady drain in purchasing power – that is, shrinking markets.
Michael Hudson
A lot of people want the crown, but they’re not willing to bleed for it.
Scott Haze
It’s always a lot more fun as a quarterback if you can do things you don’t normally get to do. So if I can catch a pass and make a play for the team, that’s what I’m willing to do.
Robert Griffin III
Christ was willing to suffer wrongs and to be despised, and do you dare to complain of anything?.
Thomas a Kempis
A dream is what you would like your life to become. A goal is what you are truly willing to do to achieve what you really want.
Denis Waitley

Kenneth R. Miller
Be willing to die for your beliefs, or computer printouts of your beliefs.

Vincent McNabb
To be an artist of my generation willing to be unhip -artists were supposed to be like cowboys.

Amy Ray

Propertius
There’s always someone willing to believe malicious rumours.
Steig Larsson
I find myself moved by social justice issues. I’m not sure where that will lead me. I’m willing to nurture it.
Eden Robinson
You must be willing to examine and explore your dark side. You must acknowledge how bad you can be and how horribly unloving you can behave. When you know how deep and dark your dark side is, it helps you stand a little taller in the light.
Iyanla Vanzant
How many of us would be willing to settle when we’re young for what we eventually get? All those plans we make…what happens to them? It’s only a handful of the lucky ones that can look back and say that they even came close.
Moss Hart
I’m willing to zap conservatives when they do things that are not libertarian.
William Safire
Life always comes out of death. The present rises from the ashes of the past. The future is always possible for those who are willing to re-create it.
Joan D. Chittister
