Labor Day Quotes

My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition.

~ Indira Gandhi

Men are made stronger on realization that the helping hand they need is at the end of their own right arm.

~ Sidney J. Phillips

I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.

~ Thomas Jefferson

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

~ Confucius

The man who rolls up his shirt sleeves is rarely in danger of losing his shirt.

~ Anonymous

If a man will not work, he shall not eat.

~ 2 Thessalonians 3:10 (NIV)

A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.

~ Albert Einstein

Work is no disgrace; the disgrace is idleness.

~ Greek proverb

Each morning sees some task begin,
Each evening sees it close;
Something attempted, some done,
Has earned a night’s repose.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

No great achievement is possible without persistent work.

~ Bertrand Russell

There is no substitute for hard work.

~ Thomas Edison

A man is not paid for having a head and hands, but for using them.

~ Elbert Hubbard

I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.

~ John D. Rockefeller

Under the spreading chestnut tree
The village smithy stands;
The smith a mighty man is he
With large and sinewy hands.
And the muscles of his brawny arms
Are strong as iron bands.
He earns whatever he can,
His brow is wet with honest sweat,
And looks the whole world in the face,
For he owes not any man.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

There is no labor a person does that is undignified; if they do it right.

~ Bill Cosby

Thunder is good, thunder is impressive;
but it is lightning that does the work.

~ Mark Twain

Before the reward there must be labor. You plant before you harvest. You sow in tears before you reap joy.

~ Ralph Ransom

Work hard, but not just to please your masters when they are watching. As slaves of Christ, do the will of God with all your heart. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.

~ Ephesians 6:6-7

Hi, Kristin.  What fantastic quotes!  Some I actually remember (and it was a good recall); others were new to me.  Thanks for taking the time to post these during Labor Day weekend.

Kristin - I enjoyed reading all these famous quotes but my favorite is: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. That's how I feel about home staging...........although there are days when it feels like work, lol. Happy Labor Day!

Hi Kristin, I have read many of these quotes over the year, but I'm with Kristine, (my daughter has the same name and spelling) my best qote is "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."  That's how I feel about my real estate career.  There are so many people who are unhappy in their chose professions... and yet they do nothing about it...

Awww Kristin, I didn't want to be reminded of the virtues of work on Labour Day. I wanted to slack off today.
