Work quotes
Work
My father taught me to work, but he did not teach me to love it.

- Lincoln, Abraham
When you play, play hard; when you work, don't play at all.

- Theodore Roosevelt
To bring one's self to a frame of mind and to the proper energy to accomplish things that require plain hard work continuously is the one big battle that everyone has. When this battle is won for all time, then everything is easy.

- Thomas A. Buckner
Some people entertain ideas; others put them to work.

Genius is the gold in the mine; talent is the miner who works and brings it out.

- Blessington, Marguerite Gardiner, Countess of
Our best work is done when it needs to be.

- F. Phelps
This became a credo of mine...attempt the impossible in order to improve your work.

- Bette Davis
This world is run by people who know how to do things. They know how things work. They are equipped. Up there, there's a layer of people who run everything. But we --we're just peasants. We don't understand what's going on, and we can't do anything.

- Lessing, Doris
Better to burn out than rust out.

- Young, Neil
It struck me that the movies had spent more than half a century saying, They lived happily ever after and the following quarter-century warning that they'll be lucky to make it through the weekend. Possibly now we are now entering a third era in which the movies will be sounding a note of cautious optimism: You know it just might work.

- Ephron, Nora
One might think that the money value of an invention constitutes its reward to the man who loves his work. But speaking for myself, I can honestly say this is not so... I continue to find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.

- Edison, Thomas A.
Something made greater by ourselves and in turn that makes us greater.

- Angelou, Maya
We can work on inner peace and world peace at the same time. On one hand, people have found inner peace by losing themselves in a cause larger than themselves, like the cause of world peace, because finding inner peace means coming from the self-centered life into the life centered in the good of the whole. On the other hand, one of the ways of working for world peace is to work for more inner peace, because world peace will never be stable until enough of us find inner peace to stabilize it.

- Pilgrim, Peace
This is an age of intellectual sauces, of essence, of distillation. We have conclusions without deductions, abridgments of history and abridgments of science without leading facts. We have animals for literature, Cabinet Encyclopaedias, Family Libraries, Diffusion Societies, and heaven knows what else! What is all this for? Not to add knowledge to the learned, but to tell points to the ignorant, without giving them the trouble to acquire the links. Oh! it is sad work. And the result will be injurious to all classes.

- Haydon, Benjamin
Labor is work that leaves no trace behind it when it is finished, or if it does, as in the case of the tilled field, this product of human activity requires still more labor, incessant, tireless labor, to maintain its identity as a work of man.

- Mccarthy, Mary
The only living works are those which have drained much of the author's own life into them.

- Butler, Samuel
Getting fired is nature's way to telling you that you had the wrong job in the first place.

- Hal Lancaster
To work -- to work! It is such infinite delight to know that we still have the best things to do.

- Mansfield, Katherine
Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every field precisely due to their feeling of playing a relatively small part in the creation of living beings, which constantly impels them to an overcompensation in achievement?

- Horney, Karen
Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas, and often meet to gossip or share ideas. On the other hand, we bossed ourselves around, set impossible goals, and demanded longer hours than office jobs usually entail. It was the ultimate "flextime," in that it depended on how flexible we felt each day, given deadlines, distractions, and workaholic crescendos.

- Diane Ackerman
