If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery quotes
Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however.
Richard Bach quotes
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
Lao Tzu quotes
If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.
Nelson Mandela quotes
Thank God, I have my work, but instead of earning money by it, I need money to be able to work; that is the difficulty. I think there are no signs in my work that indicate that I shall fail. And I am not a person who works slowly or tamely. Drawing becomes a passion with me, and I throw myself into it more and more. I do not have great plans for the future; if for a moment I feel rising within me the desire for a life without care, for prosperity, each time I go fondly back to the trouble and the cares, to a life full of hardship, and think: It is better so; I learn more from it, and make progress. This is not the road on which one perishes. I only hope the trouble and the cares will not become unbearable, and I have confidence I shall succeed in earning enough to keep myself, not in luxury, but as one who eats his bread in the sweat of his brow.
Vincent Van Gogh quotes
I did my sculpture as a painter. I did not work as a sculptor.
Henri Matisse quotes
Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.
Henry Van Dyke quotes
It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity.
Mahatma Gandhi quotes
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
Mark Twain quotes
