Passion For Work Quotes

I became successful due to several reasons. I never gave up and I never let anyone or anything get in my way. I use the power of positive thinking to tackle obstacles and challenges so they don't defeat me. Passion for my work and my business is another important reason. I really love my work and I get great satisfaction from it.

Lillian Vernon

Compassion is more important than intellect in calling forth the love that the work of peace needs, and intuition can often be a far more powerful searchlight than cold reason.

Betty Williams

Love works in miracles every day: such as weakening the strong, and stretching the weak; making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools; favouring the passions, destroying reason, and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy.

Marguerite de Valois

The problem with capitalism is that it best rewards the worst part of us: the ruthless, competitive, conniving, opportunistic, acquisitive drives, giving little reward and often much punishment--or at least much handicap--to honesty, compassion, fair play, many forms of hard work, love of justice, and a concern for those in need.

Michael Parenti

Forgetfulness, the unhistorical, is the atmosphere, in which alone life can come into being. In order to understand it, let us imagine a youth who is seized with a passion for a woman, or a man who is swayed by a passion for his work. In both cases what lies behind them has ceased to exist and yet this state (the most unhistorical that can be imagined) is that in which every action, every great deed is conceived and accomplished.

Georg Morris Cohen Brandes

Nations eagerly invested their rulers with every prerogative needed to preserve their faith, and all the care to keep Church and State asunder, and to prevent the confusion of their powers, which had been the work of ages, was renounced in the intensity of the crisis. Atrocious deeds were done, in which religious passion was often the instrument, but policy was the motive. Fanaticism displays itself in the masses; but the masses were rarely fanaticised; and the crimes ascribed to it were commonly due to the calculations of dispassionate politicians.

John Dalberg-Acton, Lord Acton

So, I think thatís the centerpiece of morality: Donít lie. But to do that, you have to go a step further and find out what the truth is. You know, itís easy to say, ìIíll never tell a lie.î But if you say, ìIím going to speak the truth,î youíre going to have to work damn hard to find out what the truth is. The next thing is just plain, old, simple kindness: to other people, to your family. Love for other people. I think thatís another very important part of morality, being genuinely compassionate and concerned about the feelings and well being of other people, especially those that depend on you directly.

George McGovern

Compassionate action involves working with ourselves as much as working with others.

Pema Chodron

Marriage is not just spiritual communion and passionate embraces; marriage is also three meals a day, sharing the workload and remembering to carry out the trash

Dr. Joyce Brothers

No-one knows what the soul is. But what we do know is, the soul is where God works compassion

Meister Eckhart

When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.

FranÁois de la Rochefoucauld

Love works in miracles every day: such as weakening the strong, and stretching the weak; making fools of the wise, and wise men of fools; favouring the passions, destroying reason, and in a word, turning everything topsy-turvy.

Marguerite De Valois

Retirement, a time to rediscover your passion.What would you work at if you didn't have to earn money!

Catherine Pulsifer

When work, commitment, and pleasure all become one and you reach that deep well where passion lives, nothing is impossible.

Unknown

In the earliest days, this was a project I worked on with great passion because I wanted to solve the Defense Department's problem: it did not want proprietary networking and it didn't want to be confined to a single network technology.

Vinton Cerf

Every civilization is, among other things, an arrangement for domesticating the passions and setting them to do useful work.

Aldous Huxley
