Labor Day Quotes

God sells us all things at the price of labor.

Leonardo da Vinci

It is labour indeed that puts the difference on everything.

John Locke

There is power, there is power in a band of working men, when they stand, hand in hand. That’s a power, that’s a power that must rule in every land.

Joe Hill

The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership - the American worker.

US Department of Labor

The distance between capital and labor is not a great gulf over which is swung a Niagara suspension bridge; it is only a step, and the laborers here will cross over and become capitalists and the capitalists will cross over and become laborers. Would to God they would shake hands while they are crossing, these from one side, and those from the other side.

Thomas De Witt Talmage
