If you want a place in the sun, you've got to put up with a few blisters.
Abigail Van Buren
Sometimes the fool who rushes in gets the job done.
Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.
I believe people work for satisfaction. I believe it is a big mistake to think that money is the
only way to compensate a person for his work. People need money, but they also want to be
happy in their work and proud of it.
I'm lazy. But it's the lazy people who invented the wheel and the bicycle because they didn't
like walking or carrying things.
Keep doing some kind of work, that the devil may always find you employed.
Work is not man's punishment. It is his reward and his strength and his pleasure.
Manual labor to my father was not only good and decent for its own sake but, as he was
given to saying, it straightened out one's thoughts.
Mary Ellen Chase
One of the most important factors, not only in military matters but in life as a whole, is the
ability to direct one's whole energies towards the fulfillment of a particular task.
Work is something you can count on, a trusted, lifelong friend who never deserts you.
He who labors diligently need never despair; for all things are accomplished by diligence and
Menander of Athens
Happiness, I have discovered, is nearly always a rebound from hard work.
The only thing that separates successful people from the ones who aren't is the willingness
to work very, very hard.
Helen Gurley Brown
Work elevates, idleness degrades.
Mrs H. O. Ward
The best preparation for work is not thinking about work, talking about work, or studying for
work: It is work.
The highest reward for a man's toil is not what he gets for it but what he becomes by it.
Work is and always has been my salvation and I thank the Lord for it.
Louisa May Alcott
Attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.
When you see some girls marry, you realize how they must hate to work for a living.
Work like you don't need the money, love like your heart has never been broken, and dance
like no one is watching.
There is a kind of victory in good work, no matter how humble.
A life of ease is a difficult pursuit.
Sometimes you earn more doing the jobs that pay nothing.
Problems are only opportunities in work clothes.
Henry J. Kaiser
A work is perfectly finished only when nothing can be added to it and nothing taken away.
