Work Quotes

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

All things are difficult before they are easy.
Thomas Fuller

Anyone who can walk to the welfare office can walk to work.
Al Capp

Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.
Sam Ewing

Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
Thomas A. Edison

Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.
Anne Frank

Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.

  5. Interesting that Anne Frank should appear here. Earlier this a.m. I saw what is proclaimed to be the only known film clip of her. She was peering from a window to the street below. Apparently, this was taken about one year before she and her family went into the same house btw.
