Work

Sam Walton

There’s absolutely no limit to what plain, ordinary, working people can accomplish if they’re given the opportunity and encouragement to do their best.

Sam Walton

If you try something and it doesn’t work, learn from that failure and try something else. But above all else, always try something.

Dr. Charles Mayo

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained in sudden flight but, they while their companions slept, they were toiling upwards in the night.

Arnold Zach

No one on his deathbed ever said, “I wish I had spent more time on my business.”

Edgar Albert Guest

The joy of life is living it, or so it seems to me;
In finding shackles on your wrists, then struggling till you’re free;
In seeing wrongs and righting them, in dreaming splendid dreams,
Then toiling till the vision is as real as moving streams.
The happiest mortal on the earth is he who ends his day
By leaving better than he found to bloom along the way.
Were all things perfect here there would be naught for man to do;
If what is old were good enough we’d never need the new.
The only happy time of rest is that which follows strife
And sees some contribution made unto the joy of life.
And he who has oppression felt and conquered it is he
Who really knows the happiness and peace of being free.
The miseries of earth are here and with them all must cope.
Who seeks for joy, through hedges thick of care and pain must grope.
Through disappointment man must go to value pleasure’s thrill;
To really know the joy of health a man must first be ill.
The wrongs are here for man to right, and happiness is had
By striving to supplant with good the evil and the bad.
The joy of life is living it and doing things of worth,
In making bright and fruitful all the barren spots of earth.
In facing odds and mastering them and rising from defeat,
And making true what once was false, and what was bitter, sweet.
For only he knows perfect joy whose little bit of soil
Is richer ground than what it was when he began to toil.

Martin Buxbaum

We can curse the fate that made us…or love each living hour…if we
do the job God gave us…be we humble weed or flower.
For each of us is needed…and each of us has worth…or He never
would have bothered…to honor us with birth.
There is fragrance in the roses…and shade beneath the pine…and
softness in the clover…and food upon the vine.
And each one serves a different need…just as you and I…be we
creeping in the valley…or climbing to the sky.

Martin Harrison

One good practical task is worth a host of indefinite intentions to improve. We cannot become good suddenly; it is a slow and laborious process, step by step to better ways of life.

William Feather

Business and life are like a bank account – you can’t take out more than you put in.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Don’t waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Don’t waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.

Larry Page

If you’re changing the world, you’re working on important things. You’re excited to get up in the morning.

Thomas Edison

Genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.

Colin Powell

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.

Theodore Roosevelt

The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at best know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Dale Carnegie

Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.

Robert Frost

The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
