Work Quotes

from thousands of famous people

I Learned This, At Least, By My Experiment; That If One Advances Confidently In The Direction Of His Dreams, And Endeavors To Live The Life Which He Has Imagined, He Will Meet With A Success Unexpected In Common Hours. He Will Put Some Things Behind, Will Pass An Invisible Boundary; New, Universal, And More Liberal Laws Will Begin To Establish Themselves Around And Within Him; Or The Old Laws Be Expanded, And Interpreted In His Favor In A More Liberal Sense, And He Will Live With The License Of A Higher Order Of Beings. In Proportion As He Simplifies His Life, The Laws Of The Universe Will Appear Less Complex, And Solitude Will Not Be Solitude, Nor Poverty Poverty, Nor Weakness Weakness. If You Have Built Castles In The Air, Your Work Need Not Be Lost; That Is Where They Should Be. Now Put The Foundations Under Them.
~ Henry David Thoreau, "Walden", pp. 323- 324

~ Adam Smith
Whenever You Look At A Piece Of Work And You Think The Fellow Was Crazy, Then You Want To Pay Some Attention To That. One Of You Is Likely To Be, And You Had Better Find Out Which One It Is. It Makes An Awful Lot Of Difference.
~ Charles Franklin Kettering, (1876-1958)
No Matter How Hard You Work For Success If Your Thought Is Saturated With The Fear Of Failure, It Will Kill Your Efforts, Neutralize Your Endeavors And Make Success Impossible.
~ Baudjuin
I Watched A Small Man With Thick Calluses On Both Hands Work 15 And 16 Hours A Day. I Saw Him Once Literally Bleed From The Bottoms Of His Feet, A Man Who Came Here Uneducated, Alone, Unable To Speak The Language, Who Taught Me All I Needed To Know About Faith And Hard Work By The Simple Eloquence Of His Example.
~ Mario M Cuomo
