Dilberts Occupation quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#1. No matter what your work, let it be your own. No matter what your occupation, let what you are doing be organic. Let it be in your bones. In this way, you will open the door by which the affluence of heaven and earth shall stream into you. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Ruth First
#2. Mbeki began to write a study of the workings of apartheid policy in the reserves - the areas set aside in law for African occupation - as early as 1959 and 1960. #Quote by Ruth First
Dilberts Occupation quotes by William Cowper
#3. Absence of occupation is not rest; A mind quite vacant is a mind distressed. #Quote by William Cowper
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Stephen King
#4. Why do you choose to write about such gruesome subjects?
I usually answer this with another question: Why do you assume that I have a choice?
Writing is a catch-as-catch-can sort of occupation. All of us seem to come equipped with filters on the floors of our minds, and all the filters have differing sizes and meshes. What catches in my filter may run right through yours. What catches in yours may pass through mine, no sweat. All of us seem to have a built-in obligation to sift through the sludge that gets caught in our respective mind-filters, and what we find there usually develops into some sort of sideline.

The accountant may also be a photographer. The astronomer may collect coins. The school-teacher may do gravestone rubbings in charcoal. The sludge caught in the mind's filter, the stuff that refuses to go through, frequently becomes each person's private obsession. In civilized society we have an unspoken agreement to call our obsessions "hobbies."

Sometimes the hobby can become a full-time job. The accountant may discover that he can make enough money to support his family taking pictures; the schoolteacher may become enough of an expert on grave rubbings to go on the lecture circuit. And there are some professions which begin as hobbies and remain hobbies even after the practitioner is able to earn his living by pursuing his hobby; but because "hobby" is such a bumpy, common-sounding little word, we also have an unspoken agreement that #Quote by Stephen King
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#5. Surely, life is not merely a job, an occupation; life is something extraordinarily wide and profound, it is a great mystery, a vast realm in which we function as human beings. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Robert Baden-Powell
#6. If you make listening and observation your occupation you will gain much more than you can by talk. #Quote by Robert Baden-Powell
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Talal Abu-Ghazaleh
#7. I always have believed that we should not call it an Arab-Israeli issue or a Palestinian-Arab dispute or a peace negotiation. I think we should call it what it is: an occupation of Palestine, full stop. This is not a popular position in mixed company. #Quote by Talal Abu-Ghazaleh
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#8. If you have any talent, or any occupation that delights you, do it, and do it to the hilt. Don't ask why, or what difficulties you may get into. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Ronald C. Rosbottom
#9. Next to the assignment of the yellow star, the decision to arrest children between the ages of two and 16, then separate them from their parents, was probably the most significant public relations mistake of the Vichy government and their German partners...the sight of youngsters in busses, roaming the streets alone, or holding their mothers hands as they mounted police vehicles made an impression on gentile Parisians. Police reports following the round-up were especially sensitive to public opinion...'The measures taken against the Israelite have profoundly troubled public opinion. Though the French population is generally anti-Semitic, it nonetheless judges these specific measures as inhumane. It is the separation of children from their parents that most affects the French population and that provokes strong criticism of the government and of the occupying authorities...In general, our measures would have been well-received if they had only been aimed at foreign adults, but many were moved at the fate of the children... #Quote by Ronald C. Rosbottom
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Lake Bell
#10. It's priceless what you learn when you actually do. The best education is effectively to be functioning in the occupation that you want to take on. #Quote by Lake Bell
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Karl Marx
#11. The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his 'natural superiors,' and has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, callous 'cash payment.' It has drowned the most heavenly ecstasies of religious fervor, of chivalrous enthusiasm, of philistine sentimentalism, in the icy water of egotistical calculation. It has resolved personal worth into exchange value, and in place of the numberless indefeasible chartered freedoms, has set up that single, unconscionable freedom - Free Trade. In one word, for exploitation, veiled by religious and political illusions, it has substituted naked, shameless, direct, brutal exploitation.

The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage laborers.

The bourgeoisie has torn away from the family its sentimental veil, and has reduced the family relation to a mere money relation. #Quote by Karl Marx
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Seneca.
#12. But only philosophy will wake us; only philosophy will shake us out of that heavy sleep. Devote yourself entirely to her. You're worthy of her, she's worthy of you-fall into each other's arms. Say a firm, plain no to every other occupation. #Quote by Seneca.
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#13. American troops stationed in the Philippines suppressed the native uprising that had followed the treaty. Known as the Philippine Insurrection, that conflict had erupted when the Filipinos learned, after decades of fighting for independence, that they had been betrayed into exchanging the rule of Spain for American occupation. With 35,000 additional troops authorized by Congress, Roosevelt projected that within two years the rebellion would be crushed, a necessary step before the United States could execute its avowedly beneficent intentions. #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Orison Swett Marden
#14. Don't try to justify yourself on the ground that somebody must do this kind of work. Let "somebody," not yourself, take the responsibility ... Many a man has dwarfed his manhood, cramped his intellect, crushed his aspiration, blunted his finer sensibilities, in some mean, narrow occupation because there was money in it. #Quote by Orison Swett Marden
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Margaret Cho
#15. [Smoking] was a comfort, an occupation, a drug, a casual habit, a distraction, a way to not eat, a way to not pay attention, a way to not feel. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Theophile Gautier
#16. The most fitting occupation for a civilized man is to do nothing. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Dilberts Occupation quotes by William Proxmire
#17. I doubt if there is any occupation which is more consistently and unfairly demeaned, degraded, denounced, and deplored than banking. #Quote by William Proxmire
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Billy Graham
#18. The fact that God is infinite makes the study of His Word a lifetime occupation. #Quote by Billy Graham
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Bill James
#19. Baseball would be a quite remarkable activity if it was the one place in the world where your co-workers didn't have any impact on how productive you were. But in fact, baseball is a high-stress occupation, and those sort of stress-inducing activities ... just have a huge impact on how the team functions, I think. #Quote by Bill James
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Matthew B. Crawford
#20. In Calvin's time, one might have had a hereditary occupation. And as recently as the 1970s, it was possible to compose a working life centered around the steady accumulation of experience, and be valued in the workplace for that experience; for what you have become. But, as the sociologist Richard Sennett has shown in his studies of contemporary work, it has become difficult to experience the repose of any such settled identity. The ideal of being experienced has given way to the ideal of being flexible. What is demanded is an all-purpose intelligence, the kind one is certified to have by admission to an elite university, not anything in particular that you might have learned along the way. You have to be ready to reinvent yourself at any time, like a good democratic √úbermensch. And while in Calvin's time the threat of damnation might have been dismissed by some as a mere superstition, with our winner-take-all economy the risk of damnation has acquired real teeth. There is a real chance that you may get stuck at the bottom. #Quote by Matthew B. Crawford
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Joanna Walsh
#21. Let there be children and old people but few whose occupation is neither hope nor memory. Let there have been immigration at some point: enough to fill the convenience stores, the foreign restaurants, but let it be forgotten. Let the children be all in school, a breath held in, released at 3 o'clock across the park. Let the town's rhythm be unquestioned. Let me be single: no children, no family. Let me not fit in. #Quote by Joanna Walsh
Dilberts Occupation quotes by W.P. Kinsella
#22. Other people get into occupations by accident or design; but writers are born. I could work at selling motels, or slopping hogs, for fifty years, but if someone asked my occupation, I'd say writer, even if I'd never sold a word. Writers write. Other people talk. #Quote by W.P. Kinsella
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Truman Capote
#23. Friendship is a pretty full-time occupation if you really are friendly with somebody. You can't have too many friends because then you're just not really friends. #Quote by Truman Capote
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Dichen Lachman
#24. I do paint, and I wanted to actually be a painter. Sometimes I'll whip out paints. It's tough to find the motivation, but it's also a solitary, lonely occupation. What I like about acting is that it is such a collaborative thing. #Quote by Dichen Lachman
Dilberts Occupation quotes by John W. Dower
#25. What the diary does not reveal, for it stops too soon, is the appalling fact that from late 1945 until 1952 Japanese medical researchers were prohibited by U.S. occupation authorities from publishing scientific articles on the effects of the atomic bombs. #Quote by John W. Dower
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Anthony Doerr
#26. Silence is the fruit of the occupation; it hangs in branches, seeps from gutters. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Dilberts Occupation quotes by August Strindberg
#27. What an occupation! To sit and flay your fellow men and then offer their skins for sale and expect them to buy them. #Quote by August Strindberg
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Earl Blumenauer
#28. We won the war, but we are losing the occupation and reconstruction of Iraq. It is past time for a new approach, one that relies on accountability, responsibility, and phasing down the scope of our military commitment. #Quote by Earl Blumenauer
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Stephane Hessel
#29. From 1967, all the Israeli governments continued making two big mistakes: occupation and settlement in the territories. #Quote by Stephane Hessel
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Harrison Ford
#30. [On being an actor] .nothing more than a worker in a service occupation . It's like being a waiter or a gas station attendant, but I'm waiting on 6 million people in a week if I'm lucky. #Quote by Harrison Ford
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#31. Your occupation may be as humble as log splitting, and yet the devil can tempt you in it. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Chris Hedges
#32. But it would be a mistake to assume that the liberal class was simply seduced by the Utopian promises of globalism. It was also seduced by careerism. Those who mouthed the right words, who did not challenge the structures being cemented into place by the corporate state, who assured the working class that the suffering was temporary and would be rectified in the new world order, were rewarded. They were given public platforms on television and in the political arena. They were held up to the wider society as experts, sages, and specialists. They became the class of wise men and women who were permitted to explain in public forums what was happening to us at home and abroad. The New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, a cheer leader for the Iraq war and globalization, became the poster child for the new class of corporate mandarins. And although Friedman was disastrously wrong about the outcome of the occupation, as he was about the effects of globalization, he continues, with a handful of other apologists, to dominate the airwaves. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Dilberts Occupation quotes by William Faulkner
#33. It's the most satisfying occupation man has discovered yet, because you never can quite do it as well as you want to, so there's always something to wake up tomorrow morning to do. #Quote by William Faulkner
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Dennis Prager
#34. As for terror against Israelis, Palestinian Muslim terror emanates from a desire to destroy Israel, not from Israel's conduct regarding Palestinians, whether occupation, settlements, or checkpoints. One proof is that the greatest amount of Palestinian terror against Israel was unleashed after Israel agreed to give up nearly all of the West Bank to the Palestinians at the end of 2000. Islamist terror against Israel is the result of Muslim, especially Arab Muslim, desires to annihilate the one non-Muslim state in the midst of the Arab world. For most Arab Muslims and for all Islamists, the Middle East is supposed to be under Muslim rule. There is no place for a Christian Lebanon or for a Jewish Israel, no matter what its borders. That Israel is Jewish is all the more an affront to many Muslims. Jews are supposed to have dhimmi status under Muslim rule, and no Muslim should be under Jewish rule. #Quote by Dennis Prager
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Pope Pius XII
#35. Sport, properly directed, develops character, makes a person courageous, a generous loser, and a gracious victor; it refines the senses, gives intellectual penetration, and steels the will to endurance. It is not merely a physical development then. Sport, rightly understood, is an occupation of the whole person, and while perfecting the body as an instrument of the mind, it also makes the mind itself a more refined instrument for the search and communication of truth ... . #Quote by Pope Pius XII
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Kathleen Kenyon
#36. The contents of the massive banks behind these successive revetments makes it quite clear that the material was derived from the incorporation of earlier occupation levels. #Quote by Kathleen Kenyon
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Yaroslav Trofimov
#37. Now as to the behavior of the soldiers: occupations always corrupt the occupiers. #Quote by Yaroslav Trofimov
Dilberts Occupation quotes by James Boswell
#38. Drinking is in reality an occupation which employs a considerable portion of the time of many people; and to conduct it in the most rational and agreeable manner is one of the great arts of living. #Quote by James Boswell
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Milan Kundera
#39. That conversation with the taxi driver suddenly made clear to me the essence of the writer's occupation. We write books because our children aren't interested in us. We address ourselves to an anonymous world because our wives plug their ears when we speak to them. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Carl Friedrich Gauss
#40. It may be true that people who are merely mathematicians have certain specific shortcomings; however that is not the fault of mathematics, but is true of every exclusive occupation. Likewise a mere linguist, a mere jurist, a mere soldier, a mere merchant, and so forth. One could add such idle chatter that when a certain exclusive occupation is often connected with certain specific shortcomings, it is on the other hand always free of certain other shortcomings. #Quote by Carl Friedrich Gauss
Dilberts Occupation quotes by Seneca.
#41. for only philosophy or honourable occupation can divert from its anguish a heart whose grief springs from love. #Quote by Seneca.
