Money and one of its embodiments, social class, are both riveting and mysterious to children.

Life is challenging but I’m always up for a challenge.

Because advertising and marketing is an art, the solution to each new problem or challenge should begin with a blank canvas and an open mind, not with the nervous borrowings of other people’s mediocrities.

I really enjoy comedy. It’s a real challenge.
Ted Levine
There is good in everything; it’s just how you choose to look at it. Everything that’s worth it has a price. For me to be a model – I had to leave my family. Do you think I liked that? No! There are sacrifices. Life is meant to be a challenge, because challenges are what make you grow.

Winning, to me, is easy. Winning more is the challenge.
DJ Khaled

Steve Coogan
I like the challenge of trying different things and wondering whether it’s going to work or whether I’m going to fall flat on my face.

Kimberle Williams Crenshaw
The idea of doing something that I’ve never done before, that presents a new challenge, that forces me to stretch in some way – that’s kind of a perfect project for me, and especially something that has greater social, conversational ramifications. I mean what more could you want?
Allison Williams

Erno Rubik
Habaneros have a great fruity flavor, but the challenge is that you have to deflect the heat in order to taste the flavor. If you don’t, you’re dead. They should really have a warning sign on them. Deflect the habanero’s heat by pairing it with sweet food.

Rose Namajunas
My challenge when I came back was to face the young talent, dissect their games, and show them maybe that they needed to learn more about the game than just the money aspect.

I didn’t want to write a biographie romancee especially since I already write novels, nor did I want to challenge the rules of the biography game, arbitrary as those rules might be.
Edmund White
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Journalism: an ability to meet the challenge of filling the space.
Rebecca West
It is clear that the nation that assumes stewardship of the Moon now will inherit stewardship of the galaxy in the coming millennium. I think the USA is ready for that challenge!
Wilson Greatbatch
Once in a while it’s good to challenge yourself in a way that’s really daunting.
Alan Cumming
We all start in this medium because of the magic and the challenge is to keep it going.
John Sexton
There’s nothing worse – I don’t like listening to actors talk about the process, especially when – I mean, for me I’ve played a lot of guys, dudes, boys in a sense and this was a challenge for me just to play that official character.
Scott Speedman
What greater aspiration and challenge are there for a mother than the hope of raising a great son or daughter?
Rose Kennedy
The IRA has abandoned its armed struggle in pursuit of its goals by political means. This must be fully acknowledged. Continued challenge does nothing but obstruct and inhibit the peace process.
James T. Walsh
Boxing is the ultimate challenge. There’s nothing that can compare to testing yourself the way you do every time you step in the ring.
Sugar Ray Leonard
My advice to young entrepreneurs is not to accept defeat in the face of odds, and challenge negative forces with hope, self-confidence and conviction.
Dhirubhai Ambani
I’m not able to go in with an act that I use month to month year to year all the time. It’s constantly evolving and changing and that keeps me on my toes but certainly adds to the challenge.
Alan Thicke
I’m really excited to see what the future hold for me in terms of work. It’s going to be hard, but it’s going to be good hard work, and I’m really excited for the challenge that awaits me.
Amybeth McNulty
You can do nothing, or you can take on the challenge of taking on the adversity. You have got to have faith. You have to have faith in whatever you believe in.
Brian Banks
Our world faces a true planetary emergency. I know the phrase sounds shrill, and I know it’s a challenge to the moral imagination.
Al Gore
I enjoy competition. I enjoy challenges. If a challenge is in front of me and it appeals to me, I will go ahead and conquer it.
Conor McGregor
Nintendo’s philosophy is never to go the easy path; it’s always to challenge ourselves and try to do something new.
Shigeru Miyamoto
I want superfights, to challenge other opponents.
Jose Aldo
Whatever team I go to is going to be a challenge at the beginning and I’m going to have to persevere through it.
Joe Burrow
Part of the challenge of Most Wanted is trying to become the most notorious street racer on the pavement.
Josie Maran
History is malleable. A new cache of diaries can shed new light, and archeological evidence can challenge our popular assumptions.
Ken Burns
We all have our fears, but it’s about how you take up the challenge.
Sourabh Raj Jain
No, I don’t make my work in order to challenge or confuse other people’s expectations – I only do what I find natural.
Ian Hamilton Finlay
It is nice to be around people who think differently than you. They challenge your ideas and keep you from being complacent.
Tucker Carlson
I ran the L.A. marathon and really loved the experience. Communal and wild and a gigantic challenge. Finishing that marathon means I can do more than I think. I think.
Michael Weatherly
Coming up with ideas isn’t hard. The real challenge is finding the time to actually build something and then finding a home for it.
Ralph H. Baer
People ask me often, ‘Why did you leave Green Bay? You had the best quarterback, you were going good and all that.’ But I’ve always been one for challenges. Try to build something up, try something new, challenge myself.
Mike Holmgren
The seminal elements of what makes a story great – challenge, struggle, resolution – are the same whether we’re talking about story content for a movie such as ‘Rain Man,’ or telling a purposeful story to forge new business relationships or conclude a fruitful transaction, such as acquiring an NBA franchise.
Peter Guber
I’m going to leave WWII. I considered and rejected doing something on the Pacific. Fourteen years is enough. I’d like to take on a different challenge and probably a different era. But it will be another war. It’s what I do.
Rick Atkinson
I know that I’m not the easiest person to live with. The challenge I put on myself is so great that the person I live with feels himself challenged. I bring a lot to bear, and I don’t know how not to.
Maya Angelou
I think the tougher the challenge the better.
Jim Otto
It was a challenge, to work with Oliver Stone.
Anthony Hopkins
If you are a genius, you’ll make your own rules, but if not – and the odds are against it – go to your desk no matter what your mood, face the icy challenge of the paper – write.
J. B. Priestley
The rise of China as a new power is another great challenge for the US. Our failure to properly handle Germany and Japan earlier in the 20th century cost us and the world dearly. We must not make this same mistake with China.
Steve Forbes
I find that I’m just drawn to anything that’s going to challenge me as an actress. So, anything that’s going to help me grow.
Audra McDonald
I am happy that I can challenge myself in various fields.
Andra Day
Because coaching is a challenge, it makes you want to come back. But if you do, you know you’re going to be negligent in other areas.
Clyde Drexler
I really love baseball. The guys and the game, and I love the challenge of describing things. The only thing I hate – and I know you have to be realistic and pay the bills in this life – is the loneliness on the road.
Vin Scully
If we refuse to accept as inevitable the irresponsibility and educational unconcern of the adolescent culture, then this poses a serious challenge.
James S. Coleman
Woman must not accept; she must challenge. She must not be awed by that which has been built up around her; she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.
Margaret Sanger
The biggest challenge has been simulating a tornado with wind machines and dirt and debris. Right when you walk on the set, you feel the energy of a tornado. But the hardest thing is trying to get dialogue out in all of that.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar
The saxophone is an imperfect instrument, especially the tenor and soprano, as far as intonation goes. The challenge is to sing on an imperfect instrument that is outside of your body.
Stan Getz
For me, juggling mommyhood and work is a challenge, but each day I learn little tricks to make it all come together.
Kourtney Kardashian
It is a tremendous honor to be named poet laureate, but one that I find humbling as well, because it’s the kind of thing that makes me feel like – even as it’s been bestowed upon me – I must continue to live up to what it means… Being the younger laureate in the age of social media is a new challenge.
Natasha Trethewey
There are two major challenges before Indian agriculture today: ecological and economical. The conservation of our basic agricultural assets such as land, water, and biodiversity is a major challenge. How to make agriculture sustainable is the challenge.
M. S. Swaminathan
What’s always a challenge for me is that my Spanish is not the level of my English. Nor do I read in Spanish the way I read in English.
Sandra Cisneros
My biggest challenge is trust, and really believing that trust, in letting things just happen personally and professionally and trust with myself. But I’m getting better at it.
Katherine Moennig
Global warming is not a conqueror to kneel before – but a challenge to rise to. A challenge we must rise to.
Joe Lieberman
Remember the picture of the president in the classroom, being told of the attack by chief of staff Andy Card? The American people thought they were seeing a man suddenly thrust into a grave challenge no one could have anticipated.
Howard Fineman
But Paulie gives all of herself away, and so to create a love like that and a person who would give themselves away was what I thought was going to be difficult. I was little scared of such a challenge.
Piper Perabo
For some of Britain’s most powerful people, hunting and shooting are primordial rights, and any challenge to them is treated as illegitimate. They assert ownership not only of the land but also of the social relationships surrounding it.
George Monbiot
This is what I wanted. They tell me that London is the best field in history. I wanted to be part of that. Because everyone will be there it will be a wonderful challenge for me. You can see the best runners, how they look, how they run. For me to beat the best is what counts.
Haile Gebrselassie
Every Fourth of July, our Declaration of Independence is produced, with a sublime indignation, to set forth the tyranny of the mother country and to challenge the admiration of the world. But what a pitiful detail of grievances does this document present in comparison with the wrongs which our slaves endure!
William Lloyd Garrison
I’m always looking for a new challenge. There are a lot of mountains to climb out there. When I run out of mountains, I’ll build a new one.
Sylvester Stallone
International terrorism is throwing down a challenge, and not just to Russia.
Boris Yeltsin
If our history can challenge the next wave of musicians to keep moving and changing, to keep spiritually hungry and horny, that’s what it’s all about.
Carlos Santana
You see, party labels do not ensure unanimity any more than trying to cast the challenge we confront as a people through a partisan prism.
J. D. Hayworth
What’s the challenge in writing a novel that few people will read? I’m more than happy writing what I do and have no plans to change that.
Nicholas Sparks
My journey has been a very fun one because I’ve chosen to make the best of every challenge that I’ve had along the way no matter what.
Ciara
As a defender, you can be many shapes and sizes. You can be short and fast. Or you can be tall and jump high. It doesn’t matter. The only necessity is that you are confident when you take the pitch – because every week there is a new challenge.
Fabio Cannavaro
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
Jesse Jackson
Let me just tell you how thrilling it really is, and how, what a challenge it is, because in 1988 the question is whether we’re going forward to tomorrow or whether we’re going to go past to the – to the back!
Dan Quayle
It’s an honor to be chosen to serve as Mayor Hancock’s deputy mayor. This position comes with great responsibility, but should the need arise, I know I am up to the challenge.
Cary Kennedy
I love the challenge of show business. It keeps me on my toes.
Henry Darrow
I’ve worked really hard to bring something more to ‘pretty girl’ roles over the years. I consider it a challenge.
Amber Heard
Every challenge that comes up is just a problem that needs a solution.
Belinda Johnson
I think the challenges for me was to go into the studio with these incredible jazz players and come up to their level of excellence. That’s always a challenge.
Rita Coolidge
Every day there is something new you are working on. It is a challenge every day and that is what makes this game so great.
Anthony Rizzo
I’m not so much in the future as always in the present. The future always takes care of itself. What I do now with my video camera, it can only record what is happening now. I am celebrating reality and the essence of the moment. And that’s the greatest challenge that I have.
Jonas Mekas
My body looks like 30 but my face looks like 50. But I cannot walk bare-chested in the streets. I like to do these movies to challenge myself physically.
Jean-Claude Van Damme
Tournament football is unlike anything else. The campaign can be great, but a finals is a different challenge.
Chris Coleman
The challenge, really, on any new film is to try to avoid that and achieve a few moments that aren’t cliche.
Adrian Lyne
How do you actually green the supply chain is a challenge. The easier part is to do what we do; the difficult part is to get all your clients to long process will take time.
Jamshyd Godrej
I think every job I do, I sort of look for the challenge in. I mean, that’s why we do this job. It’s not, you know, obviously not for the money or for the fame, it’s for, I guess finding out more about yourself.
Sam Heughan
Every challenge has its own unique problems.
Kiran Bedi
I would enjoy sitting in a rocker… listening to soft music and contemplating the things of the universe. But such activity offers no challenge and makes no contribution.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I like to think of Everest as a great mountaineering challenge, and when you’ve got people just streaming up the mountain – well, many of them are just climbing it to get their name in the paper, really.
Edmund Hillary
To me, Batman is definately Bruce Wayne’s darker side. The challenge is playing it as two separate aspects of the same person. I have to create the illusion of a Dark Knight, who’s mysterious and strong.
Kevin Conroy
The challenge of work-life balance is without question one of the most significant struggles faced by modern man.
Stephen Covey
Being a mom to my son has taken precedence over everything in my life, and I think that’s the order it should be… It’s a great challenge that I don’t think’s ever gonna stop.
Ciara
When I see something messed up, I’m going to challenge it.
Martha McSally
Even if you have a terminal disease, you don’t have to sit down and mope. Enjoy life and challenge the illness that you have.
Nelson Mandela
In any adaptation, the challenge is to take the essence of the original source of the material, be faithful to it to a point, but to also recognize that you’re telling a story in a very different medium. It has to exist on its own, and it has to offer something unique to that experience.
Marc Platt
The largest challenge that we face, from my perspective, is the ability to continue moving forward so the agency will have a single mission: that is, to provide decent, safe, and affordable housing.
Alphonso Jackson
Failing well is a skill. Letting girls do it gives them critical practice coping with a negative experience. It also gives them the opportunity to develop a kind of confidence and resilience that can only be forged in times of challenge.
Rachel Simmons
The biggest challenge of being a pastry chef is that, unlike other types of chefs, you can’t throw things together at a farmer’s market. When you’re working with baking powder and a formula, you have to be exact. If not, things can go wrong.
Carla Hall
We need to start training more primary health providers and fewer specialists. We will never be able to control health care costs unless we challenge the over-emphasis on medical research, specialists and technology and put more emphasis on delivering good, everyday basic medicine to those who now have none.
Richard Lamm
Later on in life, I discovered that in order for me to be successful, I had to have a challenge. I can’t do a nine to five job.
Wilma Rudolph
Playing sick. That is so hard to do. It has to be a total mental challenge, as well as the physical challenge.
Michael Jordan
It’s a huge challenge, a huge responsibility. Bond is a huge iconic figure in movie history. These opportunities don’t come along very often so I thought, ‘Why not?’
Daniel Craig
I’ve learned in my life that it’s important to be able to step outside your comfort zone and be challenged with something you’re not familiar or accustomed to. That challenge will allow you to see what you can do.
J. R. Martinez
I want someone who can respectfully challenge me. I know what I believe, so there’s no point in my taking on a relationship with someone who thinks like me or laughs at what I laugh at. I enjoy being with someone who can offer me the opposite.
Arielle Kebbel
Now a great debate has been born. The thesis is Democratic Socialism. The antithesis is free-market capitalism. The Obama Democrats have posed the challenge. It is now up to the Republicans to pick it up and fight along these lines.
Dick Morris
Healthy love, I always think, is… wanting the person you love to be more of themselves. And I think for a parent that’s a challenge, because you have to let a baby spread its wings.
Anne-Marie Duff
It’s a challenge for any writer to write beyond what he knows. You get material, adapt it, and do the best you can with it.
Whit Stillman
To create an organization that’s adaptable and innovative, people need the freedom to challenge precedent, to ‘waste’ time, to go outside of channels, to experiment, to take risks and to follow their passions.
Gary Hamel
To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity.
Nelson Mandela
Mass protests often get books or films banned, but very few people take to the streets to challenge the right of the State to decide what we can read or watch – it’s still someone else’s problem.
Abhijit Banerjee
I like movies that challenge people to recognize different things.
Casper Van Dien
Writing in English was a major challenge. I didn’t want other songwriters to write for me. I wanted to preserve the spirit of my songs in Spanish. I am the same Shakira in English as I am in Spanish.
Shakira
I think all good architecture should challenge you, make you start asking questions. You don’t have to understand it. You may not like it. That’s OK.
Thom Mayne
Men speak of natural rights, but I challenge any one to show where in nature any rights existed or were recognized until there was established for their declaration and protection a duly promulgated body of corresponding laws.
Calvin Coolidge
Although the precariat does not consist simply of victims, since many in it challenge their parents’ labouring ethic, its growth has been accelerated by the neoliberalism of globalisation, which put faith in labour market flexibility, the commodification of everything, and the restructuring of social protection.
Guy Standing
The real existential challenge is to live up to your fullest potential, along with living up to your intense sense of responsibility and to be honest to yourself about what you want.
Fei-Fei Li
I certainly want campaign finance reform. I just wish this would do it in a way that would stand up to a constitutional challenge.
Ben Nelson
I want to challenge the best, and I’m ready.
Canelo Alvarez
The biggest ethical challenge AI is facing is jobs. You have to reskill your workforce not just to create a wealthier society but a fairer one. A lot of call centre jobs will go away, and a radiologist’s job will be transformed.
Andrew Ng
Solving the climate crisis is the greatest and most complex challenge that homo sapiens have ever faced. The main solution, however, is so simple that even a small child can understand it. We have to stop our emissions of greenhouse gases.
Greta Thunburg
You learn to rely on a few basic movements and use your voice to the greatest extent possible to convey your emotions. So there was a technical challenge there and a responsibility to create a character from behind the mask.
Helena Bonham Carter
If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn’t worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it’s life or death.
Morgan Freeman
I have to go on being a priest and bishop, that is, to celebrate God and what God has done in Jesus, and to offer in God’s name whatever I can discern of God’s perspective on the world around – something which involves both challenge and comfort.
Rowan Williams
There’s always a backlash when you challenge people’s convictions and their heroes.
Pink
I like to challenge myself. I like to learn – so I like to try new things and try to keep growing.
David Schwimmer
Challenge America grants go to the towns and hamlets of this sprawling country, where big touring companies will rarely go, and major actors, actresses, writers and artists may never appear in person.
Louise Slaughter
It’s a great challenge to come from little New Zealand and beat the odds in Hollywood.
Martin Henderson
Sailing is the closest I can get to nature – it’s adrenaline, fear, a constant challenge and learning experience, an adventure into the unknown. And of course there is nothing better than wearing the same T-shirt for days and not brushing my hair for weeks.
Daria Werbowy
The Teen Challenge Training Center on Pennsylvania farmland houses over 200 men in rehab. Other farms and centers have been birthed out of this ministry all over the world.
David Wilkerson
Give yourself an even greater challenge than the one you are trying to master and you will develop the powers necessary to overcome the original difficulty.
William Bennett
So we need the same strategy, we need young, aggressive judges to be appointed, and that’s what the President has done, but getting them through is the challenge.
Jay Alan Sekulow
After doing films like ‘Krrish,’ ‘Bang Bang,’ and ‘Mohenjo Daro,’ ‘Kaabil’ is one film where you can’t lie at all. You can’t be a hero. You have to be real. You have to be yourself. So that was a challenge.
Hrithik Roshan
I’ve been managing Internet businesses since 1999. That’s 12 years of being in the tornado, and it’s pretty exhausting. I’ll be looking at the next challenge, but in terms of operating an Internet business, I’ve scratched that itch very well.
Jeff Jordan
Humanity is about to face perhaps its greatest challenge ever, which is finding meaning in life after the end of ‘In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread.’
Moshe Vardi
I look for things that are going to challenge me as an actor.
Devon Sawa
Many comedians and comedy writers have shared the childhood experience of learning to joke to protect themselves from neighborhood bullies when challenge or physical defense were not among the sensible options.
Steve Allen
The challenge is sort of capturing the issues that Oregonians feel strongly about and moving forward on those.
Kate Brown
I suffered from a mild case of postpartum depression after my second child and the physical challenge of maintaining an overnight shift at CBS, a marriage, and two in diapers made the symptoms worse and everyone in the house paid the price.
Mika Brzezinski
For you, it’s a silent movie. For us, it’s a talking movie because we had lines on set. There’s a lot of noise on set and music. We spoke in English, in French, in gibberish, but it was very alive. The challenge was tap dancing.
Jean Dujardin
The challenge of a cathedral is very good for architectural inventiveness.
Oscar Niemeyer
The glory of the nation rests in the character of her men. And character comes from boyhood. Thus, every boy is a challenge to his elders.
Herbert Hoover
A woman who is willing to be herself and pursue her own potential runs not so much the risk of loneliness, as the challenge of exposure to more interesting men – and people in general.
Lorraine Hansberry
There’s always someone that’s dealing with a bigger challenge than you are. You’ve gotta have perspective.
Rob Halford
I want to challenge myself, challenge my styles.
Two Chainz
Pervading nationalism imposes its dominion on man today in many different forms and with an aggressiveness that spares no one. The challenge that is already with us is the temptation to accept as true freedom what in reality is only a new form of slavery.
Pope John Paul II
It’s getting the right person that’s the challenge.
Bob Schieffer
The minute I understand a man, he is no longer exciting and a challenge to me. And the last thing in the world I want is for a man to understand me and know what’s always going on inside my head. It takes away from all my mystery, which, as I’ve told you before, is the most important thing between a man and a woman.
Zsa Zsa Gabor
Whatever the medium, there is the difficulty, challenge, fascination and often productive clumsiness of learning a new method: the wonderful puzzles and problems of translating with new materials.
Helen Frankenthaler
Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable.
Donna Karan
My favorite instrument is the snare drum. In Scotland, the snare drum is very prominent in Highland bands. The Scottish style of playing is in my blood. It’s a very powerful instrument, but it can also be soothing, like velvet. It’s a real challenge for composers.
Evelyn Glennie
I want to be great and I accept the challenge.
A. J. Green
I probably should have gotten out, but I really enjoyed the challenge of bringing a team to that game. In fact, I probably enjoy the challenge of it more than the actual game.
Tom Landry
It was a challenge for me to do a plot because I’d been an essayist and a journalist. I had to be vigilant about moving things along and being entertaining.
Meghan Daum
I suggest to you that increasing the size of America’s economic pie – which can be achieved only if everybody has a seat at the table – is the most important challenge facing our country today.
William Weld
I’m never sure what’s coming next, but I’m an open minded person and I welcome any challenge.
Sarah Polley
I look for a role that hopefully I feel empathy with and that I can understand and love, but also that has that challenge for me to play – a different kind of role, a different type of character, a different time period.
Kathy Bates
Overall, the challenge of leadership is both moral and one of developing the characteristics that make us respected by one another.
Louis Farrakhan
To those of you who study history, economics, sociology, literature and language I present the challenge of the utilization of the enormous resources in our grasp to the problem of creating a genuinely good life for yourselves and your children.
Polykarp Kusch
Being of Indian heritage is a challenge – and it’s a blessing as well sometimes – because being good isn’t good enough. You have to be exceptional to play different characters.
Sacha Dhawan
In my view, the best of humanity is in our exercise of empathy and compassion. It’s when we challenge ourselves to walk in the shoes of someone whose pain or plight might seem so different than yours that it’s almost incomprehensible.
Sarah McBride
I try to not get to the point where one is making wallpaper, or simply painting money. I want to make sure that I am at least trying to weigh myself down, that there’s a challenge each time.
Martin Mull
At some point in time, you definitely have to go drama. Not to say that you’re going drama just because everybody else does it. You do it to challenge yourself. You do it because, naturally, in the profession of acting, you want to show growth. You want to say that you take the craft seriously.
Kevin Hart
Every single book is a challenge.
Nora Roberts
I don’t see that many movies lately that are actually about something, that are trying to challenge something about the way that people interact.
Maggie Gyllenhaal
We wanted to establish a new fan base over here. And second, we wanted to challenge ourselves. We wanted to bring what is ostensibly new music to fresh ears and see what lights them up.
Bob Weir
And, I’d never done Tennessee Williams, and I had done Broadway musicals, so it was a challenge.
Andrea Martin
I see myself doing Harry Potter films as long as I’m enjoying it and as long as they are going to challenge me as an actor. I want to be an actor – it’s my aspiration – so I want to do other films. I want to write something and I want to direct something!
Daniel Radcliffe
The biggest challenge or biggest crisis knocking on the doors of humankind is fear and intolerance.
Kailash Satyarthi
Sometimes even the greatest joys bring challenge, and children with special needs inspire a very, very special love.
Sarah Palin
People should not be imprisoned without having the ability to challenge the legality of that imprisonment.
Jeff Bingaman
The source of all the energy is the sun. The big challenge is, how do you use all of that energy? Solar power has to fascinate you. There have been strides to get the costs down, and if this will work, you have to get costs down so it is competitive with fossil fuels.
George P. Shultz
We need strong public health institutions to respond to any challenge. We need to deal with critical infrastructure. The reality is that very little money has flowed to communities to help our first responders; to help our hospitals; to help the public health infrastructure.
Bob Menendez
The abolition of the double sanction for a foul in the box is a welcome change. There are times that you cannot help but stop your opponent in the box, with your momentum forcing you to make a challenge. Fouls can’t be avoided in that situation but your intention was fair.
Philipp Lahm
Even the government understands that the environmental challenge is so big that no single agency can handle it. It needs collaboration among all the stakeholders – companies, governments, NGOs and the public. Public accountability will be the ultimate driving force.
Ma Jun
As a company grows, communication becomes its biggest challenge.
Ben Horowitz
Music should come crashing out of your speakers and grab you, and the lyrics should challenge whatever preconceived notions that listener has.
Lou Reed
To do the Ozzfest again would be great. I’d like to finish with a final Sabbath album. You always feel that it is still a challenge.
Geezer Butler
Is an out-of-control life challenge making you feel ‘out of control’ over your entire life? If so, stop lying around doing nothing. Stop sleeping late. Stop watching too much TV. Start recognizing that this lack of a disciplined schedule will only increase your feelings of being out of control of your life.
Karen Salmansohn
Every year, millions of vaccines get wasted due to inadequate storage facilities. India is a focus for us, as this is a very big challenge for the country as well as other countries across the globe.
Jamshyd Godrej
How many Catholic schools do you think teach the students to question the authority of the Pope? Do you believe Christian schools teach students to question or challenge the authority of Jesus Christ? Do military schools teach the cadets to challenge the authority.
Neal Boortz
That image of the countryside being a threatening place still exists. People continue to resist the challenge of learning about aspects of life they don’t understand.
Mary Wesley
Finding specialty food items was a bit of a challenge in Asia in the early days of getting the Mozza’s up and running. Everything is built on relationships, and when you start somewhere new, it takes time to develop that. Staffing can also present challenges.
Joe Bastianich
I turned down ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Spider-Man,’ two movies that I knew would be phenomenally successful, because I had already made movies like that before and they offered no challenge to me. I don’t need my ego to be reminded.
Steven Spielberg
I did the Kilimanjaro climb a few years ago, then the six-day trek to Machu Picchu in Peru so this bike ride to raise money for Great Ormond Street seemed like the next big challenge.
Denise Van Outen
I believe everyone deserves access to clean air and water, and that climate change has exacerbated this challenge.
Jimmy Gomez
I had to overcome challenge after challenge in order to take my life from nothing to living my dreams.
Curtis Jackson
Here is a piece of advice: If you want to strengthen your views, challenge them.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
The real challenge of writing songs isn’t just writing a bunch of parts – like a verse, chorus, verse – but making something that flows together, that brings you back.
James Mercer
There is no joy involved in climbing mountains, there is simply the challenge, the self-invented challenge, the play.
Reinhold Messner
To inspire a singularity of focus, a challenge must be important to you and it must be something you feel you should do now in this moment. If it’s trivial or not time-bound, you won’t engage. So in selecting your next challenge in life, choose one that is meaningful and will demand your complete concentration.
Brendon Burchard
If you have a pre-conceived idea of the world, you edit information. When it leads you down a certain road, you don’t challenge your own beliefs.
David Icke
A nice person is a ‘yes’ person, whereas a good person is a person who accepts their responsibility in things and moves forward and tries to constantly evolve and isn’t afraid to say no or challenge someone or be honest or truthful.
Miranda Kerr
The instrumental stuff is a good challenge, and it keeps my fingers athletically tuned, but I’m totally happy to bang away on some chords, sing some harmonies and play some wailing blues solos after the second chorus.
Paul Gilbert
Education technology is very important because we have a massive challenge in public schools.
Major Owens
So another challenge for our generation is to create global institutions that reflect our ideas of fairness and responsibility, not the ideas that were the basis of the last stage of financial development over these recent years.
Gordon Brown
But for me, the challenge is how you turn a character into behavior. Once the director says ‘action’, you just try to live between those two worlds.
Robert Duvall
Champagne, if you are seeking the truth, is better than a lie detector. It encourages a man to be expansive, even reckless, while lie detectors are only a challenge to tell lies successfully.
Graham Greene
We can today open wide the history of their administrations and point with pride to every act, and challenge the world to point out a single act stained with injustice to the North, or with partiality to their own section.
Robert Toombs
The challenge for me as a parent of two girls is to establish enough structure in the house so that things don’t go haywire… but at the same time, as a dominant male figure in their life, let them know they can topple the king.
Mark Duplass
Part of the reason I wanted to model was to push the boundaries and challenge the perceptions of what a beautiful body is supposed to look like. Why should I feel any differently about looking good than anyone else?
Aimee Mullins
I think the thing I fear most in life is waking up one day and not feeling challenge – feeling ambivalent or glib about what I have to do that day.
Aisha Tyler
COVID-19 is unlike any other challenge the world has faced, affecting people from every socio-economic background and causing a disruption in operations and processes across industries.
Ritesh Agarwal
We have fun, we listen to one another, we challenge one another, we trust one another. We’re doing what we enjoy, and we’re not just playing for each other, we’re playing for the people.
Benny Green
The challenge of film is making it right there at that moment, and then you get to move on.
Bernadette Peters
I think that’s the challenge of our generation: if we are all technology natives, how do we live with influence both online and off, and how do we make sure that both of those aren’t lacking in some type of deeper human connection and substance?
Amanda Gorman
The biggest challenge of my career, which is something that authors of genre fiction face all the time, is writing something fresh and new and at the same time meeting reader expectations.
Julia Quinn
It’s hard to make something collaboratively. That’s the challenge. Sometimes you’re successful.
Marguerite Moreau
Let’s cooperate and challenge the administration to cooperate with us because within the administration there are also moderates and people who are not fully comfortable with the tendencies that have prevailed in recent times.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
To be a truly conscientious artist, you have to look at what’s not working and challenge it. You riff on things.
Kara Walker
The real challenge for a vegan is getting vitamin B and omega-3s, but you can get those in a vegetarian supplement.
Emily Deschanel
The biggest challenge is how to affect public attitudes and make people care.
Jim Fowler
What I like writing about are people’s relationships, not necessarily great big dramatic things but the smaller things in life and how they affect characters and challenge and change the people that they are. I do like a happy ending, so my books have to have a happy ending.
Penny Jordan
The real challenge to upholding India’s freedoms is how patchy and individual-driven it is when it comes to the judiciary. The system is so arranged that instead of legal precedent and case law setting the template for the court’s interventions, the idea of justice is guided by what Judge A or Judge B may think.
Barkha Dutt
My elementary school teachers were big on pushing kids to read. If you read a certain amount of books, they would provide you with incentives, sort of like what we are doing with the WrestleMania Reading Challenge.
Rey Mysterio
But let no one be under any doubt that the scale of the challenge that Europe faces in this emerging global economy is immense and the practical pace of our collective action to meet these challenge to date has just been too slow.
John Hutton
It’s not easy to have success with restaurants in different cities, but I like the challenge.
Alain Ducasse
It is no judgement of a thing outside yourself to say it makes you ill. The wise reader knows that every pronouncement is, to some degree, an act of self-exposure; the book you find too challenging might only show how ill-equipped you are to face its challenge.
Howard Jacobson
When you go to the mountains, you see them and you admire them. In a sense, they give you a challenge, and you try to express that challenge by climbing them.
Edmund Hillary
Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance.
Kofi Annan
Filming is quite exciting because every day is different, but it can involve long hours standing around in chilly locations. Theatre is a very different challenge because every night you’re striving to keep it fresh, even though you might have been performing the same play for months.
Samantha Bond
I never want to shy away from a challenge.
Ravi Shastri
If danger arises in the present moment, there may be an emotion. There may even be pain. But that’s a challenge, not a problem. For a problem to exist, you need time and repetitive mind activity.
Eckhart Tolle
While I was in London it was completely upside-down. I got a whole new life and it was a challenge to keep in touch with my life in Ireland, but it was great fun. Now though, I’ve been back home since November and gradually all connections with my HP life have been fading.
Evanna Lynch
Our challenge in this regard will be to broaden the scope of our federal funds in terms of international diplomacy, development aid, and international assistance. Many Latinos in the United States look at Latin America and see trouble brewing.
Bob Menendez
The challenge to our national economies and the collective economy of Europe will become – with the growth of China and the continuing productivity growth of the US – even more intense in the decades to come.
John Hutton
To play something which is a big spectrum is so much more fun, so much more of a challenge.
Olivia Colman
I think diversity is a challenge everywhere.
Evan Spiegel
Right now we have a closure rate between discovery and exploitation of four to six months. We need to be more in the realm of seven to 10 days. That is an enormous challenge.
John W. Thompson
The challenge is always before us. Whenever we lose sight of the principles that mattered to our founders we run into trouble.
Jesse Helms
Mozart is always a bit of a challenge – you know, even though it is often given to very young singers, it is actually the most complicated to sing in many instances.
Sarah Brightman
Whatever each individual woman is facing – only she knows her biggest challenge.
Gloria Steinem
I liked the challenge of writing in a very concise structure in which both meaning and form are important.
Jeffery Deaver
I’ve never been one to run from a challenge.
Patrick Swayze
The structural thinking I use in the concert hall is unnecessary to most film projects, and most film composers make better use of the enormous range of pop and other materials and techniques required of them than I probably would, faced with the same challenge.
John Corigliano
I feel for people with crazy names. It’s been a challenge, but if that’s my struggle, I can live with it.
Molly Qerim
Leg day is my favorite day. You can’t have a thorough leg workout without feeling completely spent. It’s a challenge, but the benefits of maintain muscle mass on my legs is important because, as the biggest muscle group in the body, it also helps me keep the proper body composition in terms of fat to muscle ratio.
Ian Ziering
You do have to challenge yourself. I think scared is a good thing.
Jodie Comer
Especially in this industry, women challenge men much more now because we’re saying, ‘We can do it, too.’
Regina King
The challenge is that the day before something is truly a breakthrough, it’s a crazy idea. And crazy ideas are very risky to attempt.
Peter Diamandis
I have a quite a good understanding of the human body, but I feel like I’ve got two different people in my head. One of them is saying, ‘You shouldn’t be eating this’ and the other is saying, ‘you know you need to.’ It’s such a challenge.
Kadeena Cox
As a world leader, America must be prepared to confront any challenge.
Christopher Dodd
People might say I’m difficult, but did you ever hear anyone describe a label as ‘difficult’? By nature, artists should challenge. When they call you difficult, it is a reflection of the imbalance of power.
Michelle Shocked
I’ve just been reading about cycling. Yeah, I’m not that great at it but I like the challenge of it.
Joey Santiago
I think we all have a lot of darkness in our bellies. As an actor, the challenge of tapping into that, reaching down into that sadness or anger, is very therapeutic.
Kevin Bacon
The people of this state won’t back down from a challenge. Not in the fight for civil rights, not in defending our nation’s freedoms, not in the aftermath of devastating natural disasters.
Robert J. Bentley
I enjoy every second I’m in the gym. I love to challenge myself, push myself; obviously there’s a lot of different routines and a lot of different stuff we do – love cycling, and again, it’s part of my lifestyle.
Camilo Villegas
Regardless of fuel type or technology, every major energy project must face the challenge of siting infrastructure.
Chris Sununu
If you are giving a graduate course you don’t try to impress the students with oratory, you try to challenge them, get them to question you.
Noam Chomsky
I always look for a challenge and something that’s different.
Tom Cruise
I may have had a lot of luck in my life, but I still need to find a challenge in the game.
Zinedine Zidane
To compel the nation with challenge the traditional American doctrine of freedom of the seas, every man and every ship in the navy is solemnly pledged.
Josephus Daniels
It’s a big challenge for me to keep my integrity and some of my privacy intact.
Sarah McLachlan
If you always think about your dreams or goals, work steadfastly towards them and continue to challenge yourself, you will definitely be able to realise those dreams or goals.
Tadashi Yanai
In life, loss is inevitable. Everyone knows this, yet in the core of most people it remains deeply denied – ‘This should not happen to me.’ It is for this reason that loss is the most difficult challenge one has to face as a human being.
Dayananda Saraswati
It’s a new challenge to see how people can change your look. I like words like transformation, reinvention, and chameleon. Because one word I don’t like is predictable.
Naomi Campbell
I like good stories. Quality products and character are what’s important. Even if the script isn’t that strong, if I challenge myself with a great character, I’ll go for it.
Corin Nemec
A child born to a Black mother in a state like Mississippi… has exactly the same rights as a white baby born to the wealthiest person in the United States. It’s not true, but I challenge anyone to say it is not a goal worth working for.
Thurgood Marshall
Playing for Madrid is a great challenge.
Kaka
Challenge yourself, its fine not to be a totally finished person.
Leigh Steinberg
The Montgomery Bus Boycott began in December 1955, and by 1956 NAACP leaders came to me and asked me to be part of a lawsuit they wanted to file on my behalf and that of three other women, to challenge segregation on public buses.
Claudette Colvin
But we can turn challenges into opportunities if we look outwards to the realities of the global economy and modernise our internal institutions in ways that will equip Europe to meet that challenge and create confidence amongst the public.
John Hutton
Obsession led me to write. It’s been that way with every book I’ve ever written. I become completely consumed by a theme, by characters, by a desire to meet a challenge.
Anne Rice
Comedians have to challenge the power. Comedians should be dangerous and devastating – and funny. That’s the hardest part.
Mort Sahl
You will enrich your life immeasurably if you approach it with a sense of wonder and discovery, and always challenge yourself to try new things.
Nate Berkus
You will encounter misguided people from time to time. That’s part of life. The challenge is to educate them when you can, but always to keep your dignity and self-respect and persevere in your personal growth and development.
Bernice King
Doubt is important because it suggests progress. Total certainty can mean there’s no assessment of things. Doubt, if you don’t panic, can allow newness to come in and challenge something that’s an established mode.
Chris Ofili
We’re not afraid of risking what was our success yesterday in order to explore some new field. We’re adventurous. We like the challenge of unknown territory, unknown artistic field, and that’s what stimulates us.
Guy Laliberte
Our covering ministry is Challenge for Christ ministries, and Travel the Road was solely our mission arm, designed to expose people to what missions are, then connect them with agencies that send people out.
Michael Scott
I want to challenge the presumption that the world cannot know it is the world unless there is an alternative to the world.
Stanley Hauerwas
I encourage all of you to seek out teachers and mentors that challenge you to think for yourself and guide you to find your own voice.
Renee Olstead
I don’t think of depression as contagious. Other depressed people challenge the idea – which can be very persistent and irritating – that there is something odd about you: that you are unique with regard to this wretched state.
Spike Milligan
The only use of an obstacle is to be overcome. All that an obstacle does with brave men is, not to frighten them, but to challenge them.
Woodrow Wilson
The biggest challenge was that we had to shoot so quickly and with such a limited budget.
Debbie Allen
I have great people, smart people that are around me and we love the challenge. I guess it’s like climbing a mountain or building a building. It’s a challenge but you love every challenge that it brings or presents itself.
Ice Cube
Where every moment is about truth and I think it’s a great challenge every night. That’s what really drove me to wanting to do theatre, and it’s great.
Deborah Cox
I love competing against the best players. I have a huge challenge, and that’s to win a U.S. Open and complete the Grand Slam. I enjoy that challenge. Every year it comes around, I get excited to try to conquer that opportunity. I love it.
Phil Mickelson
That’s really the challenge of this century, to develop spokespeople.
Jim Fowler
I am very excited – it’s a big opportunity for me to play for Manchester United, a new challenge for me. I will try to do my best.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Every culture has something to be ashamed of, but every culture also has the right to change, to challenge negative traditions, and create to new ones.
Azar Nafisi
I liked ‘Scream of the Banshee’ because it was a real challenge. I thought, ‘How am I going to pull off this character?’ But, I also thought, ‘Oh, man, I’m going to go for it.’ He’s got all the defects of character that an actor loves to play. So, I had a really great time.
Lance Henriksen
To portray a maniac offers a compelling challenge.
Bela Lugosi
I’ve got the greatest job in the world. There’s no other job in government where cause and effect is so tightly coupled where you can make a difference every day in so many different ways and in so many different people’s lives. It’s a great challenge.
Michael Bloomberg
The entrepreneurial life is one of challenge, work, dedication, perseverance, exhilaration, agony, accomplishment, failure, sacrifice, control, powerlessness… but ultimately, extraordinary satisfaction.
David S. Rose
I find it some of the hardest photography and the most challenging photography I’ve ever done. It’s a real challenge to work with the natural features and the natural light.
Galen Rowell
I actually love the challenge of being in a new place where I’m so obviously the foreigner.
Kevin Olusola
As an actor, you’re supposed to take jobs that will challenge you or force fans to see you in a different light. By the ’90s, I wasn’t really an actor anymore. I was someone who went on the road with these gigantic concerts.
Bette Midler
My sense is if the Episcopal Church can’t stand challenge within its own ranks, then it is not a church I would want to be a member of anyway.
John Shelby Spong
I’m not a wushu champion. I was an athlete when I was a kid. I was a swimmer and a runner, but all this action stuff is such a challenge. It really, really is.
Maggie Q
They’re simply following what was laid down in front and they play the same thing. So, there’s no great challenge In being a classical drummer.
Buddy Rich
It is definitely a challenge to play Nathan, but the more different he is from myself, the more interesting the character becomes for me.
James Lafferty
I love the challenge of taking these really complicated subjects and trying to humanise them.
Matthew Heineman
Often times when you face such an overwhelming challenge as global climate change, it can be somewhat daunting – it’s kind of like trying to lose weight, which I know something about.
Hillary Clinton
If you look at why people become wack as they get older, it’s because they stop doing the things they did that were formative to their work. You can’t mentally stay still. You can’t not challenge yourself.
Virgil Abloh
Politics isn’t just a game of clashing parties and competing interests. The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it.
Sarah Palin
I challenge record companies to show me evidence of a single penny they’ve lost due to Napster.
Dave Rowntree
Lisa understands me. I’m very complex, but I have trouble opening up to people. I tend to keep things to myself. All my life, I’ve been kind of shy – opening up is always a challenge and Lisa can understand that.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar
Our single most important challenge is therefore to help establish a social order in which the freedom of the individual will truly mean the freedom of the individual.
Nelson Mandela
I find as long as I acknowledge the truth of something, then that’s it. I know what it is and then I can operate. But if I overestimate the downside of something or the challenge of something and I get too obsessed about the difficulty of it, then I don’t leave enough room to be open to the upside, the possibility.
Michael J. Fox
When you succeed, at a certain point, you want to challenge yourself. Otherwise, you become boring. You become a has-been. It’s not very interesting. I don’t want to be this guy who has only succeeded in France.
Gad Elmaleh
I am ready to work, I am ready for this job and I am ready for this challenge.
Stuart Pearce
The United States did not choose to fight Islamic extremists. These terrorists chose to fight our way of life. They chose to challenge our existence.
John Boehner
No matter what problem you encounter, whether it’s a grand challenge for humanity or a personal problem of your own, there’s an idea out there that can overcome it. And you can find that idea.
Ray Kurzweil
I’m always looking for the next challenge.
Richard MacDonald
I love challenges, I love intensity, and I also like to challenge my mind. Believe it or not, boxing is not only about physical force. You use a lot of concentration; it’s really mental.
Adriana Lima
Parents walk a fine line between discipline and grace – values have to hold even when circumstances change or call for compromise or compassion. It’s the ultimate challenge to be both firm and fluid, soft and strong, yielding yet rock solid.
Kristin Armstrong
I wanted to enjoy my life and challenge myself.
Shinsuke Nakamura
At the moment I’m enjoying a new challenge at the Royal Opera House, but I’m also keen to pursue my interest in television and particularly in science.
Deborah Bull
I’m fortunate to have viewed our Earth from the moon and that vision has convinced me that technology and commitment will conquer any challenge.
Jack Swigert
But it is a delightful challenge to try to depict interesting aliens.
David Brin
I’d always wanted a challenge and I suppose that’s why I’ve always wanted to go into pop music, because I want to be seen as someone that broke the record.
Becky Hill
There is no debate about whether or not climate change is happening. We will deal with it as a challenge. But we also take it as an opportunity to invest.
Justin Trudeau
My friends, history, history calls us to this time and to this place. A solemn choice rests with us – where do we go from here? Do we move slowly and incrementally? Or do we seize the challenge of our time and tackle the great issues of our day.
Tom Vilsack
I think it is all about finding ways to challenge yourself.
Aaron Rodgers
I worry about global anti-Semitism – not just as a bad idea that originates from bad people, but also as something that arises as a challenge to global order.
Timothy D. Snyder
Your ability as republican volunteers, to rise to this challenge will mean that the two governments and others cannot easily hide from their obligations and their responsibility to resolve these problems.
Gerry Adams
Since I’m so slow, I have to be fairly choosy about the projects I take on, and it can’t be something that I’m only ‘sort of’ into. I knew that ‘The Stand’ would be an amazing challenge every month that would be a blast to illustrate.
Lee Bermejo
A woman’s life can really be a succession of lives, each revolving around some emotionally compelling situation or challenge, and each marked off by some intense experience.
Wallis Simpson
History is made every day. The challenge is getting everyone to pay attention to it.
Adora Svitak
When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways – either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength. Thanks to the teachings of Buddha, I have been able to take this second way.
Dalai Lama
To create a new standard, you have to be up for that challenge and really enjoy it.
Shigeru Miyamoto
Roosevelt’s magic lay in one facet of his personality: He knew how to take the risk. No other man in public life I knew could so readily take the challenge of the new.
Emanuel Celler
I think one of the most difficult challenges in show business is the challenge of longevity and to constantly realize and reveal what’s already been there – like doing stage and singing and dancing in New York. I haven’t been that far out of my comfort zone in a while.
Blair Underwood
I like having a new challenge to tackle because that gives me an adrenaline rush.
Gautam Rode
I suppose for me as an artist it wasn’t always just about expressing my work; I really wanted, more than anything else, to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit towards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.
David Bowie
For me it is important to mould myself as the director wants. That’s my challenge as an actor.
Javed Jaffrey
In any country, governance issues are there. Challenges are there, pressures are there. When multi-party coalitions take decisions, sometimes delays will be there. But that is what democracy is: it is beauty or it’s challenge.
Anand Sharma
Everything gradually comes to an end or there’s a new challenge around the corner.
Gary Cahill
I try to get roles that challenge me in what I can do and who I think I can portray. For me, it’s about creating characters with really fascinating stories, because that’s what I like to watch on TV.
Tatiana Maslany
We’re a big check mark on everybody’s schedule. I told them it’s just another challenge, let’s go after it.
Dick Butkus
And obviously, from our own personal point of view, the principal challenge is a personal challenge.
Richard Branson
The interesting part for India is really that it’s an emerging market, and therefore the opportunities are very unique. I guess the challenge that comes with that – it’s always a path less trodden.
Ronnie Screwvala
I like the way words go together and I like the gamesmanship of writing poetry. It is such a challenge.
Jeffery Deaver
I always want to do better; I always want to find a new challenge.
Bonnie Hammer
A new project can offer you a new challenge.
Ronald Koeman
The biggest and most interesting challenge is to bring Elsa Schiaparelli’s legacy to the present and the future. She had an exceptional, incredible, and intelligent approach; she was ahead of her times.
Marco Zanini
I placed my new novel, ‘The Book of Lost Fragrances’, in Paris, knowing it would be a challenge. But the book belonged in the city that is one of the greatest perfume capitals of the world and has been since for more than three centuries.
M. J. Rose
When Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain’s government fell in May 1940, the nation turned to Churchill. At last, his unique qualities were brought to bear on a supreme challenge, and with his unshakable optimism, his heroic vision, and above all, his splendid speeches, Churchill roused the spirit of the British people.
Gretchen Rubin
There were certainly things I was scared to do, but I never thought I wasn’t up for the challenge.
Rooney Mara
Every Teen Challenge ministry is responsible for raising its own finances, but we assist these works with finances, prayer and counseling, especially overseas in areas such as Siberia, Africa, South America.
David Wilkerson
One of the fastest ways to find the solution to an issue or challenge you are facing is to ask the right questions.
Robin S. Sharma
A battery by definition is a collection of cells. So the cell is a little can of chemicals. And the challenge is taking a very high-energy cell, and a large number of them, and combining them safely into a large battery.
Elon Musk
A vibrant civil society can challenge those in power by documenting corruption or uncovering activities like the murder of political enemies. In democracies, this function is mostly performed by the media, NGOs or opposition parties.
Evgeny Morozov
Great music is its own movie, already. And the challenge, as a music fan, is to keep the song as powerful as it wants to be, to not tamper with it and to somehow give it a home.
Cameron Crowe
We must accept life for what it actually is – a challenge to our quality without which we should never know of what stuff we are made, or grow to our full stature.
Robert Louis Stevenson
I think the biggest challenge for Somalia has been the sense that it is a hopeless case of incomprehensible internal conflicts and there is nothing we can do.
Jan Egeland
I try to take things that challenge me either physically or mentally, or I have to learn a new skill.
John C. Reilly
Clearly a big challenge for Christianity is how to remain in contact with the millions of people who look for God but do not come to Church.
Timothy Radcliffe
Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others.
Amelia Earhart
I’m not looking for a challenge, necessarily. I’m looking to make a really great film.
Mads Mikkelsen
I think I can safely say that, as adolescents, most people have excess energy to spare and need adventure, excitement, and a challenge.
Prince Charles
I tend to arrive in the rehearsal process with very strongly developed ideas about what I want to do. But I don’t like those ideas to be things that are not subject to change, or subject to development, or subject to challenge.
Trevor Nunn
I keep myself content by doing lots of different stuff and make sure that my next role is completely different to the last. I just enjoy the versatility of it, the challenge of doing lots of different things. It keeps the job interesting.
David Thewlis
I’d say that it’s important for music to be there that gives you a challenge, that rearranges things in your head.
Tom Jenkinson
It is a challenge to direct any film.
Sudeep
That was my challenge as a composer. Like with anything, to keep yourself interested in doing what you do, you set yourself challenges. So I said, Okay, I’ll try to write a hundred tunes in a year.
John Zorn
The real challenge was to model all the interest rates simultaneously, so you could value something that depended not only on the three-month interest rate, but on other interest rates as well.
John Hull
It’s not really about the competition. Your biggest challenge in a race is yourself. You’re often racing against time. You’re frequently running everything through your mind. You’re always competing against preconceived ideas. It’s not really the person next to you that you worry about.
Summer Sanders
Our reports about civilian casualties here, about the resistance of the Iraqi forces, are going back to the United States. It helps those who oppose the war when you challenge the policy to develop their arguments.
Peter Arnett
Rather than viewing a brief relapse back to inactivity as a failure, treat it as a challenge and try to get back on track as soon as possible.
Jimmy Connors
It took me about 12 years to reach my million-word mark. The challenge now is to continue to challenge myself.
Lynn Abbey
The challenge that so many people have is not knowing how to take that first step of reaching out to another person for help.
Kate Middleton
As a 22-year Army Veteran who served in Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom, and as a Civilian Advisor to the Afghan Army in Operation Enduring Freedom, I understand both the gravity of giving the order, and the challenge of carrying it out.
Allen West
The Broadway audience is made up of a greater percentage of tourists now. There’s not nearly as much variety and danger and challenge in what’s being offered.
John Lithgow
I was scared many times on Everest, but this is all part of the challenge. When I fell down a crevasse, it was pretty scary.
Edmund Hillary
My challenge was even greater as a journalist, because this was happening in my own backyard.
Paula Zahn
When I first started out in the entertainment business, I made a list of people I thought it would be good to meet. Not people who could give me a job or a deal, but people who could shake me up, teach me something, challenge my ideas about myself and the world.
Brian Grazer
I’ve been directing more and more the last few years, I find it an enjoyable challenge.
Eric Stoltz
The biggest challenge for me was Get Rhythm. I don’t know why.
Brian Setzer
The biggest challenge we all face is to learn about ourselves and to understand our strengths and weaknesses. We need to utilize our strengths, but not so much that we don’t work on our weaknesses.
Mae Jemison
I feel that the great challenge of our time is the communication of ideas.
Alain de Botton
I like to do projects that challenge me, and hopefully in turn challenge the audience, or open your eyes to something you’re not aware of.
Mia Wasikowska
The challenge we have in the war on terrorism is looking around for those pieces that matter and trying to fit them together.
Mac Thornberry
In these times, the hardest task for social or political activists is to find a way to get people to wonder again about what we all believe is true. The challenge is to sow doubt.
Lawrence Lessig
To date, nearly 100,000 Hispanics have died with AIDS. Since Hispanics are the fastest growing minority group in the United States, our challenge is even greater.
Solomon Ortiz
See in old days, there were only two parties nationally, Congress and BJP… Now there are regional leaders. Time has come to pick up regional leaders in these national parties and build political campaign around them who can challenge regional parties.
Amarinder Singh
I adore the challenge of creating truly modern clothes, where a woman’s personality and sense of self are revealed. I want people to see the dress, but focus on the woman.
Vera Wang
I’m looking forward to the new challenge that playing T20 cricket in England will bring.
Babar Azam
An actor has to remember the primary reason why he chose the profession that he did. If every role that I do doesn’t challenge me, then what is the point of being an actor?
Sushant Singh Rajput
The rare opportunity of writing music for a movie about the making of ‘Mary Poppins’ was impossible to ignore. The fact that it could provide emotional content in relief of the struggles that the Sherman brothers and Walt Disney endured was reason enough to take on the challenge.
Thomas Newman
The modern museum has multiple purposes – to curate and preserve, to research, and to reach out to the public. They challenge us and ask us to question our assumptions about the past or the world around us.
Kate Williams
I’d challenge myself to see how long I could go without a fall – on beam, I once went three weeks.
Dominique Moceanu
I don’t run away from a challenge because I am afraid. Instead, I run toward it because the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet.
Nadia Comaneci
Influential people are never satisfied with the status quo. They’re the ones who constantly ask, ‘What if?’ and ‘Why not?’ They’re not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom, and they don’t disrupt things for the sake of being disruptive; they do it to make things better.
Travis Bradberry
I’m about to challenge for the Maryland Cup in the next couple of years, as an owner, a trainer, and a rider.
Davy Jones
I’ve never done an improvised movie as a fictitious character. I think that’s the challenge.
Martin Short
Follow your curiosity, and have the courage to meet the challenge. That’s where science starts, in my opinion.
Tasuku Honjo
The opera is like a husband with a foreign title – expensive to support, hard to understand and therefore a supreme social challenge.
Cleveland Amory
I think the greatest challenge in environmentalism and the most rewarding challenge is trying to figure out how humans can meet their needs while protecting the environment.
Gale Norton
I feel that I can face any challenge.
Simona Halep
About every other week, I sit down with all of our new Zynga hires and I talk to them for about 90 minutes, have an open Q&A. There is no formal presentation. I talk about our values, where they came from and why they are so important, and I ask them to challenge those values.
Mark Pincus
What we can do now is contribute to a clearer understanding of what happened that day on Everest in the hope that the lessons to be learned will reduce the risk for others who, like us, take on the challenge of the mountains.
Anatoli Boukreev
And we’re seeing a higher level of consciousness and many more opportunities for people to challenge their present ways of thinking and move into a grander and larger experience of who they really are.
Neale Donald Walsch
I’m continuing to figure it out every single year: Life is a challenge, and the ones that succeed in life are the tough-minded ones that are not willing to accept failure.
Jermaine O’Neal
The Madden Curse has really taken on a life of its own. People just love talking about it, and it is what it is, but I look at it as a challenge.
Drew Brees
I am not going to be licked by tragedy, as life is a challenge, and we must carry on and work for the living as well as mourn for the dead.
Rose Kennedy
I’m a very brave person. I can go to North Vietnam, I can challenge my government, but I can’t challenge the man I’m with if means I’m going to end up alone.
Jane Fonda
We do not know what lies ahead, yet whatever the challenge, leaders will rise, finding the heart, the language, the caring that embraces and sustains.

When Niki and I moved to Paris, there was also the challenge of Paris, an extremely daunting city.

The challenge in any kind of storytelling, as far as I know, it is, you’re looking for the moment that is completely unexpected, but at the same time, you think to yourself, ‘Of course, that’s the only way it could have gone.’ It has to feel like it’s the truth of it.

Ibrahim Babangida
Climate change is the environmental challenge of this generation, and it is imperative that we act before it’s too late.

There’s no such thing as a perfect guy. I think it would be strange if somebody was absolutely everything you always wanted, because then there’d be no challenge. Also, you’d feel inferior.
Jessica Alba
The real challenge is if you don’t look super sexy, like a Brad Pitt, you’re going to have to try harder. You’re going to have to make up for it in other ways.

Some big actresses told me a few things that inspired me. One said that the biggest challenge for a female actress was to make sure they are not profoundly bored. Another told me to just do whatever you want – do anything.
Elizabeth Banks
I think being on a TV show is amazing but also, people get kind of used to seeing you a certain way and so it becomes a challenge to break free from that in a way.
Aubrey Plaza
I think the challenge is going out in front of a paying audience with absolutely nothing and trying to entertain them for two hours. Thankfully, I only think about that right before we go on, and then once we’re out there, everything’s fine.

The reader’s challenge is to replicate the experiment by reading the poem and to draw their own conclusions.

Ashley Tisdale

Whitfield Diffie
The challenge to me as a director was for the audience to see the film as going on in a straight line, so that they did not sense all of these break-ups. I did not want a film to be a collage of all these images.
Pedro Almodovar
I’m just looking as always for something that’s stimulating and I hope to find a good story that’s a challenge, whether it’s big or small. Or that it finds me. I don’t have like a career plan. Maybe I should, but I don’t.
Viggo Mortensen
I love walking on a treadmill, it’s a great way to challenge yourself!

David Kay

Neurosurgery is a new challenge with each case. The preparation, the discipline, the technical skills and the need to perform at your very best under pressure provide the same adrenaline rush I had in football.
Myron Rolle
The challenge for me as an actor is if you become a celebrity, you don’t meet strangers anymore. And strangers are where we have our anonymity. And I believe it’s essential for the soul to be anonymous, especially if you’re going to be an actor.
Matthew McConaughey
I’ve programmed myself musically to come up with love-feeling tracks that are romantic, sexy, but classy, all in one. And that’s the challenge. Once I create that music, then the lyrical content starts to come – you know, the stories and things like that.
R. Kelly
Sometimes in life, when bad things happen to us, or things aren’t going our way, or we’re faced with a challenge or a problem, it’s how you look at the problem; it’s how you do it to change your mindset, to dilute the negativity.

Maryanne Wolf
I think I will always be performing; I don’t think I can take that away. Because I really just enjoy it. I like getting up to sing; I like the challenge of learning new material and singing it in front of an audience.
