Work Quotes

A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.

Albert Camus

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

A customer is the most important visitor on our premises, he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.

Mahatma Gandhi

Wiz Khalifa

After sleeping through a hundred million centuries we have finally opened our eyes on a sumptuous planet, sparkling with color, bountiful with life. Within decades we must close our eyes again. Isnt it a noble, an enlightened way of spending our brief time in the sun, to work at understanding the universe and how we have come to wake up in it? This is how I answer when I am askedas I am surprisingly oftenwhy I bother to get up in the mornings.

Richard Dawkins

Just about the time a woman thinks her work is done, she becomes a grandmother.

Edward H. Dreschnack

Mistakes, obviously, show us what needs improving. Without mistakes, how would we know what we had to work on?

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives, not looking for flaws, but for potential.

Ellen Goodman

So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work

Peter F. Drucker

Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again. And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work, we must all work, to make the world worthy of its children.

Pablo Picasso

H S M Burns

Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.

Buddha

Elbert Hubbard

If you allow yourself to begin posting entries based on what you think someone else wants you to write, you are missing the point of having a weblog. Even more destructive is the number game. It is always flattering to discover that someone else likes reading what you write, but it you begin to focus on gaining the largest audience you can, you will destroy whatever pleasure you may otherwise derive from your work.

Rebecca Blood

We must do the work to prove our fears groundless, otherwise it is our fears that will gain ground and our lives will be spent in their service.

Guy Finley

Human rights education is much more than a lesson in schools or a theme for a day; it is a process to equip people with the tools they need to live lives of security and dignity. On this International Human Rights Day, let us continue to work together to develop and nurture in future generations a culture of human rights, to promote freedom, security and peace in all nations.

Kofi Annan

A person may desire to live for hundreds of years if he works according to this truth because that sort of work will not bind him to the law of karma. And there is no alternative to this way for man.

Sri Ishopanishad, Mantra Two

The best insurance policy for tomorrow is to make the most productive use of today. A lot of what passes for depression these days is nothing more than a body saying that it needs work.

Geoffrey Norman

Nerves provide me with energy. They work for me. It's when I don't have them, when I feel at ease, that I get worried.

Mike Nichols

Towards the end of the race my helmet strap started to work loose and my helmet was lifting down the straights, which was pulling the strap tight against my throat and choking me. I had to drive one-handed for most of the time. I couldn't breathe very well. It was just more worrying than anything else. I was just slightly pulling it down to get more air in.

Jensen Button

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence.

Daniel Hudson Burnham
