Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else.
James Matthew Barrie, Sr. quotes
One is happy as a result of one's own efforts once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, selfdenial to a point, love of work, and above all, a clear conscience.
George Sand quotes
Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.
James Allen quotes
What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god -- the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals!
William Shakespeare quotes
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
Robert Louis Stevenson quotes
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.
Elbert Hubbard quotes
Much good work is lost for the lack of a little more.
Edward H. Harriman quotes
Good words cost no more than bad.
Thomas Fuller quotes
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work (2 Chronicles 15:7).
The Bible quotes
If you do not feel yourself growing in your work and your life broadening and deepening, if your task is not a perpetual tonic to you, you have not found your place.
Orison Sweet Marden quotes
