Labor quotes by A.S. Byatt
#1. What is read and understood and contemplated and intellectually grasped is our own, madam, to live and work with. A lifetime's study will not make accessible to us more than a fragment of our own ancestral past, let alone the aeons before our race was formed. But that fragment we must thoroughly possess and hand on. Hoc opus, hic labor est. There is, I am tempted to assert, no easy way, no short cut: we are, in attempting those, like Bunyan's Ignorance who found a path to Hell at the very gate of the City of Heaven. #Quote by A.S. Byatt
Labor quotes by Wilford Woodruff
#2. Ours is no ordinary calling. Great opportunities and privileges have been bestowed upon us. To us, as a people, has been entrusted the grand and glorious labor of laying the foundation of the kingdom of God upon the earth. Every act of our lives should be performed with this in view. Nothing should be done by anyone calling himself a Latter-day Saint that will conflict with the policy which God has announced as proper to be adopted in establishing that kingdom (The Discourses of Wilford Woodruff, p. 125). #Quote by Wilford Woodruff
Labor quotes by Joe McNally
#3. Technology has eliminated the basement darkroom and the whole notion of photography as an intense labor of love for obsessives and replaced them with a sense of immediacy and instant gratification. #Quote by Joe McNally
Labor quotes by Hudson Taylor
#4. To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, Come to me and rest. But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service, and do not mistake it. It is not, Go, labor on, as perhaps you imagine. On the contrary, it is stop, turn back, Come to me and rest. Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work; never, never did He send a hungry one, a weary one, a sick or sorrowing one, away on any service. For such the Bible only says, Come, come, come. #Quote by Hudson Taylor
Labor quotes by Nathan Yocum
#5. The burden of genius is not the labor of our endeavors but in sharing the world with fools who don't know they are fools. Mark my words, the pseudointellectual will be the death of us all. #Quote by Nathan Yocum
Labor quotes by Woodrow Wilson
#6. The welfare, the happiness, the energy and spirit of the men and women who do the daily workis the underlying necessity of all prosperity ... There can be nothing wholesome unless their life is wholesome; there can be no contentment unless they are contented. #Quote by Woodrow Wilson
Labor quotes by Jerry Uelsmann
#7. It's equally hard and labor intensive to create an image on the computer as it is in a darkroom. Believe me. #Quote by Jerry Uelsmann
Labor quotes by Neal Shusterman
#8. Eventually your body will learn the alliances it has to make with itself,' Kenny had said - as if Cam was a factory full of strike-prone workers, or worse, a clutch of slaves forced into unwanted labor. #Quote by Neal Shusterman
Labor quotes by Danielle L. Jensen
#9. Dying was and easy thing to accomplish, effortless in its agony. It was living that was hard, requiring endless toil and labor, and for all one's efforts, it could be stolen in an instant. #Quote by Danielle L. Jensen
Labor quotes by Malcolm X
#10. An integrated cup of coffee isn't sufficient pay for four hundred years of slave labor. #Quote by Malcolm X
Labor quotes by Robert Dallek
#11. The so-called second New Deal of 1935 - including the Works Progress Administration, Social Security and the Wagner Act legalizing union labor - represented an effort to meet the rising voices demanding a more aggressive government approach to the collapse of national prosperity. #Quote by Robert Dallek
Labor quotes by William H. Frey
#12. New racial minorities now constitute a fresh and welcome presence in the suburbs and slow-growing rural areas as well as in big cities. They are a much-needed tonic for a labor force that would otherwise be starting to shrink. Furthermore, they will serve as a necessary conduit to other nations in today's increasingly globalized economy. The political clout of racial minorities, both new and old, was demonstrated in the 2008 and 2012 U.S. presidential elections, and diversity within the electorate continues to increase more rapidly than most political strategists could have anticipated only a couple of election cycles ago. #Quote by William H. Frey
Labor quotes by Rex E. Lee
#13. I have no criticism of the basic concept of irrefutable authority. Properly employed, it is the easiest, the surest, and the proper way to resolve conflicts. There is an omnipresent temptation, however, to rely on such authority regardless of its applicability; and I know of no better examples than the scriptures and the Constitution.

We find it easy to lapse into the expansive notion that the Constitution, like the gospel, embraces all truth and that it protects and guarantees all that is right, equitable, and just. From that grand premise it is only a short and comfortable leap to the proposition that the Constitution embraces my particular notion of what is right, equitable, and just. The Constitution lends itself to this kind of use because of its breadth.

Issues such as foreign aid, fluoridation of water, public versus private education, progressive income tax, to which political party I should belong and which candidate I should support; questions about economic development and environmental quality control; questions about the power of labor unions and the influence of big business in government--all these are issues of great importance. But these questions cannot and ought not to be resolved by simply resorting to irrefutable authority. Neither the Constitution nor the scriptures contain answers to these questions, and under the grand plan of eternal progress it is our responsibility to develop our own skills by working out our own answers throug #Quote by Rex E. Lee
Labor quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#14. What is man but a mass of thawing clay? The ball of the human finger is but a drop congealed. The fingers and toes flow to their extent from the thawing mass of the body. Who knows what the human body would expand and flow out to under a more genial heaven? Is not the hand a spreading palm leaf with its lobes and veins? The ear may be regarded, fancifully, as a lichen, Umbilicaria, on the side of the head, with its lobe or drop. The lip--labium, from labor (?)--laps or lapses from the sides of the cavernous mouth. The nose is a manifest congealed drop or stalactite. The chin is a still larger drop, the confluent dripping of the face. The cheeks are a slide from the brows into the valley of the face, opposed and diffused by the cheek bones. Each rounded lobe of the vegetable leaf, too, is a thick and now loitering drop, larger or smaller; the lobes are the fingers of the leaf; and as many lobes as it has, in so many directions it tends to flow, and more heat or other genial influences would have caused it to flow yet farther. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Labor quotes by Robinson Jeffers
#15. Mountains, a moment's earth-waves rising and hollowing; the earth too's an ephemerid; the stars -
Short-lived as grass the stars quicken in the nebula and dry in their summer, they spiral
Blind up space, scattered black seeds of a future; nothing lives long, the whole sky's
Recurrences tick the seconds of the hours of the ages of the gulf before birth, and the gulf
After death is like dated: to labor eighty years in a notch of eternity is nothing too tiresome,
Enormous repose after, enormous repose before, the flash of activity.
Surely you never have dreamed the incredible depths were prologue and epilogue merely
To the surface play in the sun, the instant of life, what is called life? I fancy
That silence is the thing, this noise a found word for it; interjection, a jump of the breath at that silence;
Stars burn, grass grows, men breathe: as a man finding treasure says "Ah!" but the treasure's the essence:
Before the man spoke it was there, and after he has spoken he gathers it,
inexhaustible treasure. #Quote by Robinson Jeffers
Labor quotes by Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
#16. An army is strengthened by labor and enervated by idleness. #Quote by Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus
Labor quotes by Dolores Huerta
#17. I think organized labor is a necessary part of democracy. Organized labor is the only way to have fair distribution of wealth. #Quote by Dolores Huerta
Labor quotes by Felix Dennis
#18. When you come across real talent, it is sometimes worth allowing them to create the structure in which they choose to labor. In nine cases out of ten, by inviting them to take responsibility and control for a new venture, you will motivate them to do great things. #Quote by Felix Dennis
Labor quotes by Kelly Eileen Hake
#19. We aren't getting married to save on labor, Mr. Creed.' Evie's glower could have burned through a sequoia. Twice. 'I, for one, am offended you think we're marriage mercenaries. #Quote by Kelly Eileen Hake
Labor quotes by Jennifer Mathieu
#20. As much as I love her, I know she wouldn't get it. Meemaw and Grandpa see the world one way. You go to church on Sunday, you don't wear white after Labor Day, and you always say "Merry Christmas," not "Happy Holidays. #Quote by Jennifer Mathieu
Labor quotes by Ze'ev Jabotinsky
#21. The fight against Germany has now been waged for months by every Jewish community, on every conference, in all labor unions and by every single Jew in the world. There are reasons for the assumption that our share in this fight is of general importance. We shall start a spiritual and material war of the whole world against Germany. Germany is striving to become once again a great nation, and to recover her lost territories as well as her colonies. But our Jewish interests call for the complete destruction of Germany ... #Quote by Ze'ev Jabotinsky
Labor quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#22. What is memory but the repository of things doomed to be forgotten, so you must have History. You must have labor to invent History. Being faithful to all that happens to you of significance, recording days, dates, events, names, sights not relying merely upon memory which fades like a Polaroid print where you see the memory fading before your eyes like time itself retreating. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Labor quotes by Thomas Wolfe
#23. Day by day, a throning traffic of life and business passed before him in the streets; day by day, the great vans came, the drivers, handlers, and packers swarmed before his eyes, filling the air with their oaths and cries, irritably intent upon their labor; but the man in the window never looked at them, never seemed to be aware of their existence- he just sat there and looked out, his eyes fixed in an abstracted stare.
--------
That man's face became for him the face of Darkness and of Time. It never spoke, and yet it had a voice- a voice that never seemed to have the whole earth in it. It was the voice of evening and of night, and in it were the blended tongues of all those men who have passed through the heat and fury of the day, and who now lean quietly upon the sills of evening. In it was the whole vast hush and weariness that comes upon the city ay the hour of dusk, when the chaos of another day is ended, and when everything- streets, buildings and eight million people- breathe slowly, with a tired and sorrowful joy. And in that single toungless voice was the knowledge of all their tongues. #Quote by Thomas Wolfe
Labor quotes by George Gilder
#24. The fundamental fact in the lives of the poor in most parts of America is that the wages of common labor are far below the benefits of AFDC, Medicaid, food stamps, public housing, public defenders, leisure time and all the other goods and services of the welfare state. #Quote by George Gilder
Labor quotes by Lewis Mumford
#25. By his very success in inventing labor-saving devices, modern man has manufactured an abyss of boredom that only the privileged classes in earlier civilizations have ever fathomed. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Labor quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#26. Prudence, patience, labor, valor; these are the stars that rule the career of mortals. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Labor quotes by David Graeber
#27. If we let everyone decide for themselves how they were best fit to benefit humanity, with no restrictions at all, how could they possibly end up with a distribution of labor more inefficient than the one we already have? This is a powerful argument for human freedom. Most of us like to talk about freedom in the abstract, even claim that it's the most important thing for anyone to fight or die for, but we don't think a lot about what being free or practicing freedom might actually mean. The main point of this book was not to propose concrete policy prescriptions, but to start us thinking about arguing about what a genuine free society might actually be like. #Quote by David Graeber
Labor quotes by Shoshana Zuboff
#28. Labor came to humanity with the fall from grace and was at best a penitential sacrifice enabling purity through humiliation. Laborwas toil, distress, trouble, fatigue
an exertion both painful and compulsory. Labor was our animal condition, struggling to survive in dirt and darkness. #Quote by Shoshana Zuboff
Labor quotes by Charles Guggenheim
#29. I think he was explicit that it was a slave labor situation, but I was not alarmed at that point, because there were so many tragedies involved in that war. That was the first time I had any indication that something was sort of strange. #Quote by Charles Guggenheim
Labor quotes by Margaret Mitchell
#30. In the dull twilight of the winter afternoon she came to the end of a long road which had begun the night Atlanta fell. She had set her feet upon that road a spoiled, selfish and untried girl, full of youth, warm of emotion, easily bewildered by life. Now, at the end of the road, there was nothing left of that girl. Hunger and hard labor, fear and constant strain, the terrors of war and the terrors of Reconstruction had taken away all warmth and youth and softness. About the core of her being, a shell of hardness had formed and, little by little, layer by layer, the shell had thickened during the endless months. #Quote by Margaret Mitchell
Labor quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#31. I observed mildness of temper, and unchangeable resolution in the things that he had determined after due deliberation; and no vainglory in those things that men call honors; and a love of labor and perseverance; and a readiness to listen to those who had anything to propose for the common weal; and undeviating firmness in giving to every man according to his deserts; and a knowledge derived from experience of the occasions for vigorous action and for remission. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Labor quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#32. What never vary are the necessities of being in the world, of having to labor and to die there. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Labor quotes by Joe Roman
#33. It may be underfunded and at times mismanaged, but the [Endangered Species] Act is an unprecedented attempt to delegate human-caused extinction to the chapters of history we would rather not revisit: the Slave Trade, the Indian Removal Policy, the subjection of women, child labor, segregation. The Endangered Species Act is a zero-tolerance law: no new extinctions. It keeps eyes on the ground with legal backing-the gun may be in the holster most of the time, but its available if necessary to keep species from disappearing. I discovered in my travels that a law protecting all animals and plants, all of nature, might be as revolutionary-and as American-as the Declaration of Independence. #Quote by Joe Roman
Labor quotes by Mark Twain
#34. The highest pleasure to be got out of freedom, and having nothing to do, is labor. #Quote by Mark Twain
Labor quotes by Wallace Shawn
#35. I don't see that many plays, and for me, musicals are rarely pleasing. #Quote by Wallace Shawn
Labor quotes by Greg Brown
#36. Much is written about wine ... of its makers, its nuances, its myths. The white hot center of each wine's mystery lies in humble corners of the world, where growers pour their intention, their character and their love of labor into each wine. #Quote by Greg Brown
Labor quotes by Donald Stabile
#37. The point was made many times that scientific management benefitted workers not at all, perhaps most clearly by a short statement by John P. Frey, editor of the International Molders Journal and participant in a bipartisan survey of the claims of scientific management,

'If generally applied the craftsmen would pass out of existence, and the workers would become dependent for their existence upon the scanty and insignificant industrial knowledge and experience afforded them by their limited opportunities, regulated by those who in addition to their ownership of machinery, had also acquired possession of craft knowledge and the skilled workers' methods. #Quote by Donald Stabile
Labor quotes by Richelle Mead
#38. I don't suppose you offered to help?"
"Sage," Adrian declared. "These hands don't do manual labor." He knocked another ball into a hole. "You want to play?"
"What? With you?"
"No, with Clarence." He sighed at my dumbfounded look. "Yes, of course with me. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Labor quotes by Mark Blyth
#39. The "German problem" after 1970 became how to keep up with the Germans in terms of efficiency and productivity. One way, as above, was to serially devalue, but that was beginning to hurt. The other way was to tie your currency to the deutsche mark and thereby make your price and inflation rate the same as the Germans, which it turned out would also hurt, but in a different way.

The problem with keeping up with the Germans is that German industrial exports have the lowest price elasticities in the world. In plain English, Germany makes really great stuff that everyone wants and will pay more for in comparison to all the alternatives. So when you tie your currency to the deutsche mark, you are making a one-way bet that your industry can be as competitive as the Germans in terms of quality and price. That would be difficult enough if the deutsche mark hadn't been undervalued for most of the postwar period and both German labor costs and inflation rates were lower than average, but unfortunately for everyone else, they were. That gave the German economy the advantage in producing less-than-great stuff too, thereby undercutting competitors in products lower down, as well as higher up the value-added chain. Add to this contemporary German wages, which have seen real declines over the 2000s, and you have an economy that is extremely hard to keep up with. On the other side of this one-way bet were the financial markets. They looked at less dynamic economies, such as the Un #Quote by Mark Blyth
Labor quotes by John Steinbeck
#40. The great owners, striking at the immediate thing, the widening government, the growing labor unity; striking at new taxes, at plans; not knowing these things are results, not causes. Results, not causes; results, not causes. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Labor quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#41. I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Labor quotes by Wendell Berry
#42. Because by definition they lack any such sense of mutuality or wholeness, our specializations subsist on conflict with one another. The rule is never to cooperate, but rather to follow one's own interest as far as possible. Checks and balances are all applied externally, by opposition, never by self-restraint. Labor, management, the military, the government, etc., never forbear until their excesses arouse enough opposition to force them to do so. The good of the whole of Creation, the world and all its creatures together, is never a consideration because it is never thought of; our culture now simply lacks the means for thinking of it.

It is for this reason that none of our basic problems is ever solved. Indeed, it is for this reason that our basic problems are getting worse. The specialists are profiting too well from the symptoms, evidently, to be concerned about cures -- just as the myth of imminent cure (by some 'breakthrough' of science or technology) is so lucrative and all-justifying as to foreclose any possibility of an interest in prevention. The problems thus become the stock in trade of specialists. The so-called professions survive by endlessly "processing" and talking about problems that they have neither the will nor the competence to solve. The doctor who is interested in disease but not in health is clearly in the same category with the conservationist who invests in the destruction of what he otherwise intends to preserve. The both have the comfort #Quote by Wendell Berry
Labor quotes by Virginia Eubanks
#43. While poorhouses have been physically demolished, their legacy remains alive and well in the automated decision-making systems that encage and entrap today's poor. For all their high-tech polish, our modern systems of poverty management - automated decision-making, data mining, and predictive analysis - retain a remarkable kinship with the poorhouses of the past. Our new digital tools spring from punitive, moralistic views of poverty and create a system of high-tech containment and investigation. The digital poorhouse deters the poor from accessing public resources; polices their labor, spending, sexuality, and parenting; tries to predict their future behavior; and punishes and criminalizes those who do not comply with its dictates. In the process, it creates ever-finer moral distinctions between the 'deserving' and 'undeserving' poor, categorizations that rationalize our national failure to care for one another. #Quote by Virginia Eubanks
Labor quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#44. The necessity of labor and conversation with many men and things to the scholar is rarely well remembered. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Labor quotes by Rediker Marcus Peter Linebaugh
#45. In the glossaries of cant or theives' talk we are given a veritable dramatis personae of the land rovers, all those who rejected wage labor: the Abraham-men, palliards clapperdudgeons, whipjacks, dummerers, files, dunakers, cursitors, Roberds-men, swadlers, prigs, anglers, fraters, rufflers, bawdy-baskets, autem-morts, walking morts, doxies, and dells. #Quote by Rediker Marcus Peter Linebaugh
Labor quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#46. To say that one goes on holiday is to speak the language of the working class, for whom the time off appears merry and playful; but to say one goes on vacation is to speak the language of the ruling class. Vacation comes from the same root as vacant and reflects what the owner sees when he looks around the floor - a vacancy where John 'should' 'be'. (I suspect that the owner probably thinks some negative thoughts about the Labor Unions and the 'damned Liberal' Government that force him to pay John even when John 'is vacant.')

I leave it as a puzzle for the reader: Do the Irish and English speak Working Class in this case because they have had several socialist governments, or have the had several socialist governments because they learned to speak the language of the Working Class? And: has the U.S., alone among industrial nations, never had a socialist government because it speaks the Ruling Class language, or does it speak the Ruling Class language because it has never had a socialist government? #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson
Labor quotes by Thomas Brooks
#47. If it is not strong upon your heart to practice what you read, to what end do you read? To increase your own condemnation? If your light and knowledge be not turned into practice, the more knowing a man you are, the more miserable a man you will be in the day of recompense; your light and knowledge will more torment you than all the devils in hell. Your knowledge will be that rod that will eternally lash you, and that scorpion that will forever bite you, and that worm that will everlastingly gnaw you; therefore read, and labor to know that you may do
or else you are undone forever. #Quote by Thomas Brooks
Labor quotes by Og Mandino
#48. How do I change?
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will think of past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be the master of my emotions. #Quote by Og Mandino
Labor quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#49. Would you exalt your profession, exalt those who labor with you ... increase the salaries of the women engaged in the noble work of educating our future presidents, senators and congressmen. #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Labor quotes by Marilyn French
#50. And there are so much easier ways to destroy a woman. You don't have to rape her or kill her; you don't even have to beat her. You can just marry her. You don't even have to do that. You can just let her work in your office for thirty-five dollars a week. #Quote by Marilyn French
Labor quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#51. Property is the fruit of labor; property is desirable; it is a positive good. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Labor quotes by Henry George
#52. Capital is a result of labor, and is used by labor to assist it in further production. Labor is the active and initial force, and labor is therefore the employer of capital. #Quote by Henry George
Labor quotes by Barbara Castle
#53. It might have been offset for us if the revenue from our own oil and natural gas that was just developing had been available to the Labor Government, but the oil revenues were just coming in when Labor fell in '79. #Quote by Barbara Castle
Labor quotes by Steven Pressfield
#54. Bhagavad-Gita tells us we have a right only to our labor, not to the fruits of our labor. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Labor quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#55. Do not close a single sermon without addressing the ungodly, but at the same time set yourself seasons for a determined and continuous assault upon them, and proceed with all your soul to the conflict. On such occasions aim distinctly at immediate conversions; labor to remove prejudices, to resolve doubts, to conquer objections, and to drive the sinner out of his hiding-places at once. Summon the church members to special prayer, beseech them to speak personally both with the concerned and the unconcerned, and be yourself doubly upon the watch to address individuals. We have found that our February meetings at the Tabernacle have yielded remarkable results: the whole month being dedicated to special effort. Winter is usually the preacher's harvest, because the people can come together better in the long evenings, and are debarred from out-of-door exercises and amusements. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Labor quotes by Himani Bannerji
#56. It is interesting that the rhetoric and some state initiatives of multiculturalism in the West are accompanied by the gathering strength of right wing politics....Everywhere in the West 'immigration,' a euphemistic expression for racist labor and citizenship policies, has become a major election platform....The media and some members of the Canadian intelligentsia speak in terms of the end of 'Canadian culture,' displaying signs of feeling threatened by these 'others,' who are portrayed as an invasive force. In the meantime, Western capital roves in a world without borders, with trade agreements such as GATT and NAFTA ensuring their legal predations, while labour from third world countries is both locked in their national spaces and locked out from Western countries, marked by a discourse of illegality and alienness. #Quote by Himani Bannerji
Labor quotes by Kevin Hearne
#57. Drug addicts perplex me. They're a relatively recent development, historically speaking. Everyone has their theories - monotheists like to blame it on godlessness - but I think it was a plague that developed in the sooty petticoats of the Industrial Revolution and its concomitant division of labor. Once people specialized their labors and separated themselves from food production and the daily needs of basic survival, there was a hollow place in their lives that they did not know how to fill. #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Labor quotes by John Chamberlain
#58. Thus a new way of finding fluidity will inevitably be imposed on management and labor alike. The profit-sharing, or "progress" sharing union contract is the only possible way of satisfying labor and the consumer without saddling industry with fixed costs that in depression periods can kill off marginal companies like flies. #Quote by John Chamberlain
Labor quotes by Menander
#59. He who labors diligently need never despair; for all things are accomplished by diligence and labor. #Quote by Menander
Labor quotes by Marc Jacobs
#60. When you see a fashion show, you see those seven minutes of what was six months of tedious work of, you know, going up an inch and down an inch, changing it from one shade of red to another shade of red. So it's the same as any creative process. The result is what we see, but the process is really labor intensive and work. #Quote by Marc Jacobs
Labor quotes by John Ortberg
#61. The paradox of soul-satisfaction is this: When I die to myself, my soul comes alive. God says the wrong approach to soul thirst is through human achievement and material wealth. So soul-satisfaction is not about acquiring the right things but about acquiring the right soul. It is not something you buy, but something you receive freely from God. Hear these great words of the prophet Isaiah: "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and [your soul] will delight in the richest of fare." And it will be satisfied. #Quote by John Ortberg
Labor quotes by Lisa Disselkamp
#62. Used carefully, and with intent, the WAM-Pro can find ways to engage this technology to influence the amount of money the organization spends on labor. #Quote by Lisa Disselkamp
Labor quotes by T.F. Hodge
#63. Karma and manifestation work 24/7 to balance the scales. Do justice, in due time. #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Labor quotes by Jimmy Carter
#64. I first came into the labor force in 1941 when the minimum wage was 40 cents an hour, and that was my first job. And each time that we've tried to boost the lower level of salary for the most underpaid workers, there have been predictions of catastrophe. But each time, in [m]y opinion, the change has helped our Nation and its economic strength. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Labor quotes by Matthew Henry
#65. The kingdom of heaven was never intended to indulge the ease of triflers, but to the rest of them that labor. #Quote by Matthew Henry
Labor quotes by Czeslaw Milosz
#66. Learning
To believe you are magnificent. And gradually to discover that you are not magnificent. Enough labor for one human life. #Quote by Czeslaw Milosz
Labor quotes by Karl Marx
#67. As exchange-values, all commodities are merely definite quantities of congealed labour-time. #Quote by Karl Marx
Labor quotes by David Letterman
#68. Labour day is a great American holiday that people
celebrate by going out and buying products
made in China #Quote by David Letterman
Labor quotes by Roger Stone
#69. Stone's Rule #28
Never hold a meeting unless you know what result you want out of the meeting.

In both politics and business, the amount of labor and time wasted in meetings is huge.

It never ceases to shock me when I attend a meeting out to find out halfway into it that the organizers have no agenda and, by the end of it, have reached resolution on absolutely nothing.

A strong leader meticulously plans and methodically orchestrates meetings in order to achieve a desired result, or he doesn't hold them. #Quote by Roger Stone
Labor quotes by Michael S. Horton
#70. In its character, therefore, the Sabbath is not cessation from activity but cessation from a particular kind of activity - namely, the six-day labor that is intrinsically good but has suffered the curse after the fall. God did not rest because he was tired; rather, it was the rest of completion, the rest of a king who has taken his throne. Representing the consummation, this sabbatical pattern was the way not only of hoping for the new creation but of experiencing it and participating in its peace. #Quote by Michael S. Horton
Labor quotes by Lysander Spooner
#71. A man who is without capital, and who, by prohibitions upon banking, is practically forbidden to hire any, is in a condition elevated but one degree above that of a chattel slave. He may live; but he can live only as the servant of others; compelled to perform such labor, and to perform it at such prices, as they may see fit to dictate. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Labor quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#72. Let there be no compromise on the question of extending slavery. If there be, all our labor is lost, and, ere long, must be done again. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Labor quotes by George William Curtis
#73. There is very little moral mixture in the 'Antislavery' feeling of this country. A great deal is abstract philanthropy; part is hatred of slaveholders; a great part is jealousy for white labor, very little is consciousness of wrong done and the wish to right it. #Quote by George William Curtis
Labor quotes by Horace
#74. What will this boaster produce worthy of this mouthing? The mountains are in labor; a ridiculous mouse will be born.
[Lat., Quid dignum tanto feret hic promissor hiatu?
Parturiunt montes; nascetur ridiculus mus.] #Quote by Horace
Labor quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#75. Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed - there's so little competition. #Quote by Elbert Hubbard
Labor quotes by John Ruskin
#76. No one can become rich by the efforts of only their toil, but only by the discovery of some method of taxing the labor of others. #Quote by John Ruskin
Labor quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#77. History is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Labor quotes by Paul Silway
#78. Do not enter the full-time ministry unless the Lord has specifically called you for full time, otherwise your labor will be in vain. #Quote by Paul Silway
Labor quotes by Benjamin Myers

Labor quotes by Theodore Parker
#80. The duty of labor is written on a man's body: in the stout muscle of the arm,, and the delicate machinery of the hand. #Quote by Theodore Parker
Labor quotes by Edward E. Baptist
#81. The idea that the commodification and suffering and forced labor of African Americans is what made the United States powerful and rich is not an idea that people necessarily are happy to hear. Yet it is the truth. #Quote by Edward E. Baptist
Labor quotes by Ben  Rhodes
#82. But President Obama wants us to discuss bigger issues as well. He wants to change the relationship in fundamental ways while in office. We won't resolve this all in one meeting, but we want to discuss this in this channel. I then went through a long list of nearly every aspect in the U.S.-Cuba relationship that we wanted to change. The State Sponsor of Terrorism list; unwinding the U.S. embargo; restoring diplomatic relations; the reform of Cuba's economy and political system, including Internet access, labor rights, and political freedoms. During the pauses for translation, I looked at Alejandro and thought about how he was processing this in a different language, informed by a different history, focused primarily on getting these Cubans out of prison. I ended by reiterating that Alan Gross's release was essential for any of this to happen and noting that we would respect Cuban sovereignty - our policy was not to change the regime. #Quote by Ben Rhodes
Labor quotes by Baron De Montesquieu
#83. The spirit of commerce is frugality, economy, moderation, labor, ponderance, tranquillity, order, and rule. So long as this spirit subsides, the riches it produces have no bad effect. The mischief is when excessive wealth destroys the spirit of commerce, then it is that the conveniences of inequality ... are felt. #Quote by Baron De Montesquieu
Labor quotes by Merce Cunningham
#84. The most essential thing in dance discipline is devotion, the steadfast and willing devotion to the labor that makes the classwork not a gymnastic hour and a half, or at the lowest level, a daily drudgery, but a devotion that allows the classroom discipline to become moments of dancing too ... #Quote by Merce Cunningham
Labor quotes by David B. McCoy
#85. But she did inject a new term and new degree of frankness into the debate on what was coming to be called the sexual revolution. Also, by this time she saw birth control as the panacea for all social ills: disease, poverty, child labor, poor wages, infant mortality, the oppression of women, drunkenness, prostitution, abortion, feeblemindedness, physical handicaps, unwanted children, war, etc. "If we are to develop in America a new [human] race with a racial soul, we must keep the birth rate within the scope of our ability to understand as well as to educate. We must not encourage reproduction beyond our capacity to assimilate our numbers so as to make the coming generation into such physically fit, mentally capable, socially alert individuals as are the ideal of a democracy" (Sanger, 1920). #Quote by David B. McCoy
Labor quotes by Robert Frost
#86. The fact is the sweetest dream that labor knows. #Quote by Robert Frost
Labor quotes by Bernard Baruch
#87. Society can progress if men's labors show a profit - if they yield more than is put in. To produce at a loss must leave less for all to share. #Quote by Bernard Baruch
Labor quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#88. Every step by which an individual substitutes concerted action for isolated action results in an immediate and recognizable improvement in his conditions. The advantages derived from peaceful cooperation and division of labor are universal. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Labor quotes by Hannah Arendt
#89. There are no parallels to the life of the concentration camps. All seeming parallels create confusion and distract attention from what is essential. Forced labor in prisons and penal colonies, banishment, slavery, all seem for a moment to offer helpful comparisons, but on closer examination lead nowhere. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Labor quotes by Mancur Olson
#90. Just as there can be little doubt that labor unions are a significant political force, neither can there be much question that this political force is a by-product of the purely industrial activities that unions regard as their major function. #Quote by Mancur Olson
Labor quotes by Kristian Williams
#91. A total of 105 patrol officers died on the job in 2012. Less half of those (51) died as the result of violence, and another 48 died in traffic accidents. Between 1961 and 2012, 3,847 cops were murdered and 2,946 died in accidents - averaging about 75 murders and 58 fatal accidents in a typical year. Naturally it is not to be lost sight of that these numbers represent human lives, not widgets or sacks of potatoes. But let's also remember that there were 4,383 fatal work injuries in 2012. As dangerous professions go, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, policing is not even in the top ten. In terms of total fatalities, more truck drivers are killed than any other kind of worker (741 in 2012). A better measure of occupational risk, however, is the rate of work-related deaths per 100,000 workers. In 2012, for example, it was 17.4 for truck drivers. At 15.0 deaths per 100,000, policing is slightly less dangerous than being a maintenance worker (15.7) and slightly more dangerous than supervising the gardener (14.7). The highest rate of fatalities is among loggers at 127.8 per 100,000, just ahead of fishers at 117.0. The rate for all occupations, taken together, is 3.2 per 100,000 workers. Where are the headlines, the memorials, the honor guards, and the sorrowful renderings of Taps for these workers? Where are the mayoral speeches, the newspaper editorials, the sober reflections that these brave men and women died, and that others risk their lives daily, so that we might co #Quote by Kristian Williams

Labor quotes by Lois Lowry
#93. He floated above, weightless, watching his human self labor and writhe. He gave himself to it willingly, traded himself for all that he loved and valued, and felt free. #Quote by Lois Lowry
Labor quotes by Adam Smith
#94. We rarely hear, it has been said, of the combinations [that is, unions or colluding organizations] of masters, though frequently of those of workmen. But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as ignorant of the world as of the subject. Masters are always and everywhere in a sort of tacit, but constant and uniform combination, not to raise the wages of labor above their actual price. #Quote by Adam Smith
Labor quotes by Andre Breton
#95. How I loathe the servitude people try to hold up to me as being so valuable. I pity the man who is condemned to it, who cannot generally escape it, but it is not the burden of his labor that disposes me in his favor, it is
it can only be
the vigor of his protest against it. #Quote by Andre Breton
Labor quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#96. Free labor has the inspiration of hope; pure slavery has no hope. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Labor quotes by Dennis Etchison
#97. I'm living in a horror movie, all right. Only the horror doesn't have anything to do with necrophilia or black masses or crosses hung upside down, or with vampires who can't swim or zombies who work in sugar cane fields and can't stop shambling off cliffs when some guy with a jawbreaker accent says so, No, this is real life. It was running out all around him. the footprints of assassins and neo-fascists and government officials with secret closets full of tutus, private armies training in ships named after the wives of oilmen, of drunken presidents in bed with the mob and the cartels that slice up the world and stick FOR SALE signs on the pieces; while the real kings of earth lie moldering in their graves, their brains stolen away in the night and their bullet wounds altered to match storybook plots that would be laughed out of any preschool classroom. And all this while the billions sweat and grow old like the living dead, their lifeblood sucked dry by the takers of souls who need our labor to feed a hunger for power without end. The undead? What a cheapjack explanation for so much misery. There is more than enough to account for it all without falling back on the unnameable. It's already here. The trick is to see it and not flinch- there's no future in denial. It's as simple, and as enormous, as that. The truth, however bleak, was almost comforting. #Quote by Dennis Etchison
Labor quotes by Wendell Berry
#98. Late in the night I pay
the unrest I own
to the life that has never lived
and cannot live now.
What the world could be
is my good dream
and my agony when, dreaming it,
I lie awake and turn
and look into the dark.
I think of a luxury
in the sturdiness and grace
of necessary things, not
in frivolity. That would heal
the earth, and heal men.
But the end, too, is part
of the pattern, the last
labor of the heart:
to learn to lie still,
one with the earth
again, and let the world go. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Labor quotes by Isabel Allende
#99. Although women do two-thirds of the world's labor, they own less than one percent of the world's assets. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Labor quotes by Sarah Bessey
#100. We're finding each other out here, and it's beautiful and crazy and churchy and holy. We are simply getting on with it, with the work of justice and mercy, the glorious labor of reconciliation and redemption, the mess of friendship and community, the guts of walking on the water, and the big-sky dreaming of the Kingdom of God. #Quote by Sarah Bessey
Labor quotes by Anonymous
#101. Common reference to abstract labor. Marx therefore notes: "Money as a measure of value is the necessary form of appearance of the measure of value which is intrinsic to commodities, namely labour-time" (Capital, 1:188). #Quote by Anonymous
Labor quotes by Jill Shalvis
#102. An injured dog, a sick kitten, a horse in labor, it didn't matter... Dell gave his heart and soul, and in less time than it took humans to shake hands, an animal would become part of Dell's pack for life. #Quote by Jill Shalvis
Labor quotes by Judith Martin
#103. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, you may wear white shoes. Not before and not after. As a command, the White Shoe Edict should be clear and simple enough. Do not violate it. In a society in which everything else has become relative, a matter of how it makes you feel, a question between you and your conscience, and an opportunity for you to be really you, this is an absolute. #Quote by Judith Martin
Labor quotes by Catharine Beecher
#104. When the precepts and example of Jesus Christ fully interpermeate society, to labor with the hands will be regarded not only as a duty but a privilege. #Quote by Catharine Beecher
Labor quotes by Erich Fromm
#105. One is not loved accidentally; one's own power to love produces love - just as being interested makes one interesting. People are concerned with the question of whether they are attractive while they forget that the essence of attractiveness is their own capacity to love. To love a person productively implies to care and to feel responsible for his life, not only for his physical existence but for the growth and development of all his human powers. To love productively is incompatible with being passive, with being an onlooker at the loved person's life; it implies labor and care and the responsibility for his growth. #Quote by Erich Fromm
Labor quotes by George F. Kennan
#106. It is obviously easier, for the short run, to draw cheap labor from adjacent pools of poverty ... than to find it among one's own people. And to the millions of such prospective immigrants from poverty to prosperity, there is, rightly or wrongly, no place that looks more attractive than the United States. Given its head, and subject to no restrictions, this pressure will find its termination only when the levels of overpopulation and poverty in the United States are equal to those of the countries from which these people are now so anxious to escape. #Quote by George F. Kennan
Labor quotes by T. Coleman Andrews
#107. The income tax is bad because it was conceived in class hatred, is an instrument of vengeance and plays right into the hands of the communists. It employs the vicious communist principle of taking from each according to his accumulation of the fruits of his labor and giving to others according to their needs, regardless of whether those needs are the result of indolence, or lack of pride, self-respect, personal dignity or other attributes of men. #Quote by T. Coleman Andrews

Labor quotes by The Invisible Committee
#109. We have been expropriated from our own language by television, from our songs by reality TV contests, from our flesh by mass pornography, from our city by the police and from our friends by wage-labor. #Quote by The Invisible Committee
Labor quotes by Ben Bernanke
#110. I think most of us would agree that people who have, say, little formal schooling but labor honestly and diligently to help feed, clothe, and educate their families are deserving of greater respect - and help, if necessary - than many people who are superficially more successful. #Quote by Ben Bernanke
Labor quotes by Voltaire
#111. The right of commanding is no longer an advantage transmitted by nature; like an inheritance, it is the fruit of labors, the price of courage. #Quote by Voltaire
Labor quotes by Zig Ziglar
#112. When management and labor (employer and employee) both understand they are all on the same side, then each will prosper more. #Quote by Zig Ziglar
Labor quotes by Clive Palmer
#113. I've never needed a lobbyist personally to put my case. I'd rather put my case myself. But I don't understand how other people look at things. A lot of people in business haven't been involved in politics. They are frightened of ministers and the whole procedure. It's not something to be frightened of. It's something to go in and realise that people who go into politics, regardless of being Labor, Liberal or Nationals, primarily go in to serve the community. #Quote by Clive Palmer
Labor quotes by Rigoberto Gonzalez
#114. I figure I write for people who are intelligent enough to do some labor. Lazy readers are not my ideal readers. #Quote by Rigoberto Gonzalez
Labor quotes by Thomas Frank
#115. Innovation liberalism is "a liberalism of the rich," to use the straightforward phrase of local labor leader Harris Gruman. This doctrine has no patience with the idea that everyone should share in society's wealth. What Massachusetts liberals pine for, by and large, is a more perfect meritocracy--a system where everyone gets an equal chance and the truly talented get to rise. Once that requirement is satisfied--once diversity has been achieved and the brilliant people of all races and genders have been identified and credentialed--this species of liberal can't really conceive of any further grievance against the system. The demands of ordinary working-class people, Gruman says, are unpersuasive to them: "Janitors, fast-food servers home care or child care providers--most of whom are women and people of color--they don't have college degrees."

And if you don't have a college degree in Boston--brother, you've got no one to blame but yourself. #Quote by Thomas Frank

Labor quotes by C.J. Roberts

Labor quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#118. He that has energy enough in his constitution to root out a vice should go a little further, and try to plant a virtue in its place; otherwise he will have his labor to renew. A strong soil that has produced weeds may be made to produce wheat with far less difficulty than it would cost to make it produce nothing. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Labor quotes by Henry George
#119. As it becomes more and more difficult to get land, so will the virtual enslavement of the laboring-classe s go on. As the value of land rises, more and more of the earnings of labor will be demanded for the use of land, until finally nothing is left to laborers but the wages of slavery
a bare living. #Quote by Henry George
Labor quotes by Karl Marx
#120. Labor, being itself a commodity, is measured as such by the labor time needed to produce the labor-commodity. And what is needed to produce this labor-commodity? Just enough labor time to produce the objects indispensable to the constant maintenance of labor, that is, to keep the worker alive and in a condition to propagate his race. The natural price of labor is no other than the wage minimum. #Quote by Karl Marx
Labor quotes by Abel Stevens
#121. Labor is the law of happiness. #Quote by Abel Stevens
Labor quotes by Ludwig Van Beethoven
#122. In praise of Thy goodness I must confess that Thou didst try with all Thy means to draw me to Thee. Sometimes it pleased Thee to let me feel the heavy hand of Thy displeasure and to humiliate my proud heart by manifold castigations. Sickness and misfortune didst Thou send upon me to turn my thoughts to my errantries.-One thing, only, O Father, do I ask: cease not to labor for my betterment. In whatsoever manner it be, let me turn to Thee and become fruitful in good works. #Quote by Ludwig Van Beethoven
Labor quotes by Ambrose Bierce

Labor quotes by Roni Jay
#124. We go into labor as one person, but emerge as another. #Quote by Roni Jay
Labor quotes by Mary McCarthy
#125. Labor is work that leaves no trace behind it when it is finished, or if it does, as in the case of the tilled field, this product of human activity requires still more labor, incessant, tireless labor, to maintain its identity as a 'work' of man. #Quote by Mary McCarthy
Labor quotes by Dale T. Mortensen
#126. Although labor income is by far the largest component of gross national product, a job is not just a commodity. For many, work is an important reason for living. Even for those who are less fortunate in their allocation of work, being unemployed is a miserable state. #Quote by Dale T. Mortensen
Labor quotes by Horace
#127. It is good to labor; it is also good to rest from labor. #Quote by Horace
Labor quotes by Eugene V. Debs
#128. If you go to the city of Washington, you will find that almost all of those corporation lawyers and cowardly politicians, members of congress, and mis-representatives of the masses claim, in glowing terms, that they have risen from the ranks to places of eminence and distinction. I am very glad that I cannot make that claim for myself. I would be ashamed to admit that I had risen from the ranks. When I rise it will be with the ranks, and not from the ranks. #Quote by Eugene V. Debs
Labor quotes by Catherine Austin Fitts
#129. With QE3, we are essentially being bought out with our own money ... and unemployment is being used to facilitate this process in a very clever manner. Monetary inflation is currently being offset by labor deflation. The way you avoid collapse is by printing money and stealing assets. The way you avoid inflation is with labor deflation. #Quote by Catherine Austin Fitts
Labor quotes by Karl Marx
#130. The 'free' laborer, thanks to the development of capitalistic production, agrees, i.e. is compelled by social conditions, to sell the whole of his active life, his birthright for a mass of pottage. #Quote by Karl Marx
Labor quotes by Tom Sachs
#131. I want labor to be the point, because everything in our lives is miraculously made with no idea of how it's done. As an active and critical consumer, and as someone who has attempted to make the flawless and failed, I wanted a transparency of construction here. If we know how it is made and how it falls apart, we will know how to rebuild it. #Quote by Tom Sachs
Labor quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#132. Sincerity w the most compendious wisdom, an excellent instrument for the speedy despatch of business. It creates confidence in those we have to deal with, saves the labor of many inquiries, and brings things to an issue in few words. #Quote by Lord Chesterfield
Labor quotes by Valentine Xavier
#133. My honey child, them housing projects
Cannot contain her multitudes
A sunbeam, hard upon her
Just a fly strugglin' through her braid loops

Watch me prove to 'em I'm more than nothin'
But a ragamuffin with homesick eyes
Yes, when it gets to be the same old thing
Shorty you ought to come and see about me

My love, she is a drummer
Than industrial steel, her backbone tougher
The eloping night and the honey moon that trails
Just dirt 'neath her finger nails

I'll be down on them crossroads
'Til daybreak winks a bright eye
And if it gets to be the same old thing
Shorty you ought to come and see about me

She's heard all the right things
And they did not persuade her
She has no use for your words
What she wants is your labor

'Cause when gringos speak of minorities
They tend to keep their voices low
Ah, but when that gets to be the same old thing
Shorty you ought to come and see about me #Quote by Valentine Xavier
Labor quotes by Will Rogers
#134. Labor Day, I suppose set by an Act of Congress. Everything we do nowadays is either by, or against, Acts of Congress. How Congress knew anything about Labor is beyond us. #Quote by Will Rogers
Labor quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#135. The gold-digger is the enemy of the honest laborer, whatever checks and compensations there may be. It is not enough to tell me that you worked hard to get your gold. So does the Devil work hard. The way of transgressors may be hard in many respects. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Labor quotes by Vox Day
#136. So much enthusiasm about the non-existence of God is somewhat bewildering, as no one appears to be nearly as excited about a similar absence of belief in unicorns, vampires, werewolves, astrology, nation-building, or the Labor Theory of Value. Nor is anyone dedicating much of their time to writing books and giving speeches at universities and conferences with the avowed goal of convincing others not to believe in them either. #Quote by Vox Day
Labor quotes by Robert Kuttner
#137. In a world where technology and capital are highly transferable, there is a real risk that comparative advantage comes to be defined as whose labor force will work for the lowest wage. #Quote by Robert Kuttner
Labor quotes by David Eugene Edwards
#138. If by saying that all men are born equal, you mean that they are equally born, it is true, but true in no other sense; birth, talent, labor, virtue, and providence, are forever making differences #Quote by David Eugene Edwards
Labor quotes by Heraclitus
#139. Always having what we want
may not be the best good fortune
Health seems sweetest
after sickness, food
in hunger, goodness
in the wake of evil, and at the end
of daylong labor sleep. #Quote by Heraclitus
Labor quotes by Virginia Eubanks
#140. We all live in the digital poorhouse. We have always lived in the world we built for the poor. We create a society that has no use for the disabled or the elderly, and then are cast aside when we are hurt or grow old. We measure human worth based only on the ability to earn a wage, and suffer in a world that undervalues care and community. We base our economy on exploiting the labor of racial and ethnic minorities, and watch lasting inequities snuff out human potential. We see the world as inevitably riven by bloody competition and are left unable to recognize the many ways we cooperate and lift each other up.

But only the poor lived in the common dorms of the county poorhouse. Only the poor were put under the diagnostic microscope of scientific clarity. Today, we all live among the digital traps we have laid for the destitute. #Quote by Virginia Eubanks
Labor quotes by Cheryl Sterling

Labor quotes by David Mamet
#144. My dad was an immigrant kid and a Democrat and a Jew, and we didn't know any Republicans in our group. So I grew up Democratic. My dad was a labor lawyer - a very hardworking guy, a one-horse labor lawyer - and then I went to hippie college and lived in the bubble. #Quote by David Mamet

Labor quotes by Mark Twain
#147. I have had an aversion to good spelling for sixty years and more, merely for the reason that when I was a boy there was not a thing I could do creditably except spell according to the book. It was a poor and mean distinction, and I early learned to disenjoy it. I suppose that this is because the ability to spell correctly is a talent, not an acquirement. There is some dignity about an acquirement, because it is a product of your own labor. It is earned, whereas to be able to do a thing merely by the grace of God, and not by your own effort, transfers the thing to our heavenly home
where possibly it is a matter of pride and satisfaction, but it leaves you naked and bankrupt. #Quote by Mark Twain
Labor quotes by John Ruskin
#148. The greatest reward is not what we receive for our labor, but what we become by it. #Quote by John Ruskin
Labor quotes by Anthony Marais
#149. When a scientist splits an atom, the event is locked away like a jewel in a castle, funneling down to the public through a myriad of institutions. But when an artist stumbles upon the key to unleashing universal evil, the forbidden fruit of his painstaking labor is packaged and sold at every corner store from Bangor to Bangkok. I'm still unsure whether this is the result of a lack of respect for artists (compared to scientists) or the moral corruption of artists (compared to scientists). #Quote by Anthony Marais
Labor quotes by Michael Pollan
#150. For is there any practice less selfish, any labor less alienated, any time less wasted, than preparing something delicious and nourishing for people you love? #Quote by Michael Pollan
Labor quotes by Harry Truman
#151. Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home
but not for housing. They are strong for labor
but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage
the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all
but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine
for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing
but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing
so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. #Quote by Harry Truman
Labor quotes by Martin Luther

Labor quotes by Christian Nestell Bovee
#157. However much of time, labor, or other means it takes to establish a reputation, it frequently happens that it requires nearly as much to maintain it. One who has written a good book, is expected on all occasions to "talk like a book." Or, if one has achieved an act of heroism, he is expected to perform acts of heroism for the edification of all who approach him. There are people who can never believe they see a lion unless they hear him roar. #Quote by Christian Nestell Bovee

Labor quotes by Torkom Saraydarian
#161. There are three kinds of people and three kinds of richness:
- people who want to have, to collect
- people who want action, work and labor
- people who want to be
The real richness is in be-ness. People can take all that you have, all that you collected. People can stop your labor, or an accident can stop you. When you are, you never lose what you are. #Quote by Torkom Saraydarian
Labor quotes by Tom Robbins
#162. All things considered, I've learned more from talking to painters than talking to writers. Not that painters are smarter than writers, such is seldom the case, but in conversation writers are inclined to waste an inordinate amount of time either bragging or bellyaching about reviews and royalties, complaining about their publishers, or dissing other authors. Painters, being equally insecure, can likewise come across as boring and bitchy
it's tough being creative in a materialistic society
but since they labor not in vineyards of verbiage but upon ice floes of visual images, they tend to function with fewer inhibitions than the wordsmiths when it comes to vocally exploring and expressing ideas. Since no one judges their speech, comparing it to their written work, they don't feel so acutely the weight of language. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Labor quotes by Deepak Chopra
#163. Fear of pain has resulted in many women losing sight of birth as normal and natural, and of themselves as powerful and capable. Labor is an opportunity for women to learn about themselves and discover the strength and wisdom inherent in their bodies. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Labor quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#164. When I wrote the following pages, or rather the bulk of them, I lived alone, in the woods, a mile from any neighbor, in a house which I had built myself, on the shore of Walden Pond, in Concord, Massachusetts, and earned my living by the labor of my hands only. I lived there two years and two months. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau

Labor quotes by Thomas Piketty
#166. To be sure, the cost of managing capital and of "formal" financial intermediation (that is, the investment advice and portfolio management services provided by a bank or official financial institution or real estate agency or managing partner) is obviously taken into account and deducted from the income on capital in calculating the average rate of return (as presented here). But this is not the case with "informal" financial intermediation: every investor spends time - in some cases a lot of time - managing his own portfolio and affairs and determining which investments are likely to be the most profitable. This effort can in certain cases be compared to genuine entrepreneurial labor or to a form of business activity. #Quote by Thomas Piketty
Labor quotes by Jessica Simpson
#167. Labor is really going to hurt. #Quote by Jessica Simpson
Labor quotes by Louis O. Kelso
#168. Technology has no function except to save labor. Yet how often do we hear that the purpose of new capital formation is to create jobs? #Quote by Louis O. Kelso
Labor quotes by Nibley, Hugh
#169. First, of course, the work ethic... This is one of those magician's tricks in which all our attention is focused on one hand while the other hand does the manipulating. Implicit in the work ethic are the ideas (1) that because one must work to acquire wealth, work equals wealth, and (2) that that is the whole equation. With these go the corollaries that anyone who has wealth must have earned it by hard work and is, therefore, beyond criticism; that anyone who doesn't have it deserves to suffer-- thus penalizing any who do not work for money; and (since you have a right to all you earn) that the only real work is for one's self; and finally, that any limit set to the amount of wealth an individual may acquire is a satanic device to deprive men of their free agency-- thus making mockery of the Council of Heaven... In Zion you labor, to be sure, but not for money, and not for yourself, which is the exact opposite of our present version of the work ethic. #Quote by Nibley, Hugh

Labor quotes by Ovid
#171. Sleep, thou repose of all things; sleep, thou gentlest of the deities; thou peace of the mind, from which care flies; who doest soothe the hearts of men wearied with the toils of the day, and refittest them for labor. #Quote by Ovid
Labor quotes by Terry Gross
#172. The problem is that those of us who are lucky enough to do work that we love are sometimes cursed with too damn much of it. #Quote by Terry Gross
Labor quotes by Ignatius Of Loyola
#173. Lord, teach me to be generous;
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
To give and not to count the cost;
To fight and not to heed the wounds;
To toil, and not to seek for rest;
To labor, and not to ask for reward -
except to know that I am doing your will. #Quote by Ignatius Of Loyola
Labor quotes by Dana Rohrabacher
#174. Businesses should no longer be allowed to depress wages by hiring illegal labor and then falsely claim that Americans don't want to do the jobs. #Quote by Dana Rohrabacher
Labor quotes by Karl Marx
#175. Wages are a direct consequence of estranged labor, and estranged labor is the direct cause of private property. #Quote by Karl Marx
Labor quotes by George Lakoff
#176. We are proposing that the concepts that occur in metaphorical definitions are those that correspond to natural kinds of experience. Judging by the concepts that are defined by the metaphors we have uncovered so far, the following would be examples of concepts for natural kinds of experience in our culture: LOVE, TIME, IDEAS, UNDERSTANDING, ARGUMENTS, LABOR, HAPPINESS, HEALTH, CONTROL, STATUS, MORALITY, etc. These are concepts that require metaphorical definition, since they are not clearly enough delineated in their own terms to satisfy the purposes of our day-to-day functioning. #Quote by George Lakoff
Labor quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#177. A man's heart must be very frivolous if the possession of fame rewards the labor to attain it. For the worst of reputation is that it is not palpable or present - we do not feel or see or taste it. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Labor quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#178. Human labor, in general, is still divided into two exclusive categories: the first - solely intellectual and managerial - includes the scientists, artists, engineers, inventors, accountants, educators, governmental officials, and their subordinate elites who enforce labor discipline The second group consists of the great mass of workers, people prevented from applying creative ideas or intelligence, who blindly and mechanically carry out the orders of the intellectual-managerial elite This economic and social division of labor has disastrous consequences for members of the privileged classes, the masses of the people, and for the prosperity, as well as the moral and intellectual development, of society as a whole. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Labor quotes by Jack Kemp
#179. Giving tax incentives for more labor ownership of company stock will do more to create jobs and increase productivity than all the "emergency full employment" bills proposed. #Quote by Jack Kemp
Labor quotes by Ikechukwu Joseph
#180. They toiled all night and caught NOTHING.
We need SOMETHING to show for our labor or endeavors. #Quote by Ikechukwu Joseph
Labor quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#181. It is the advertiser who provides the paper for the subscriber. It is not to be disputed, that the publisher of a newspaper in this country, without a very exhaustive advertising support, would receive less reward for his labor than the humblest mechanic. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Labor quotes by Thomas Merton
#182. I would call the attention of the reader to the difference between "reason" and "reasoning." Reason is a light, reasoning a process. Reason is a faculty, reasoning an exercise of that faculty. Reasoning proceeds from one truth to another by means of argumentation. This generally involves the whole mind in labor and complexity. But reason does not exist merely in order to engage in reasoning. The process is a means to an end. The true fulfillment of reason as a faculty is found when it can embrace the truth simply and without labor in the light of single intuition. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Labor quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#183. The life of labor does not make men, but drudges. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Labor quotes by Roberta Ruth Hill
#184. The pains of all our labor to raise our child, continues to follow in cessation from one moment to the next. #Quote by Roberta Ruth Hill
Labor quotes by Pope Francis
#185. There is no worse material poverty than one that does not allow for earning one's bread and deprives one of the dignity of work. Youth unemployment, informality, and the lack of labor rights are not inevitable; they are the result of a previous social option, of an economic system that puts profit above man; if the profit is economic, to put it above humanity or above man, is the effect of a disposable culture that considers the human being in himself as a consumer good, which can be used and then discarded. #Quote by Pope Francis
Labor quotes by William Symmes
#186. All past governments degenerated and abused the powers given to them: Why would the proposed Congress be better than "myriads of publick bodies who have gone before them? It would be safer to give congress a more limited grant of revenue "adequate to all necessary purposes," and no more. "As the poverty of individuals prevents luxury," Symmes said, "so the poverty of publick bodies … prevents tyranny. A nation cannot, perhaps, do a more politick thing, than to supply the purse of its sovereign with that parsimony, which results from a sense of the labor it costs"

William Symmes, 1787
From Pauline Maier's book Ratification #Quote by William Symmes
Labor quotes by Charles Brent
#187. A low standard of prayer means a low standard of character and a low standard of service. Those alone labor effectively among men who impetuously fling themselves upward towards God. #Quote by Charles Brent
Labor quotes by Lael Brainard
#188. Women with minimal access to resources and no access to child care have limited choices that too often mean low-wage and part-time labor. In rural communities in the developing world, when women farmers have unequal access to fertilizers or training, their farm productivity lags behind men. #Quote by Lael Brainard
Labor quotes by Louis O. Kelso
#189. The idea that full employment without property ownership will solve the world's problems is utter nonsense. The Keynesian concept that the function of capital is merely to amplify labor, not independently produce wealth is simply blindness. #Quote by Louis O. Kelso
Labor quotes by Ellen G. White
#190. It is labor that keeps the strong man strong. And spiritual labor, toil and burden-bearing, is what will give strength to the church of Christ. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Labor quotes by Artemus Ward
#191. I am happiest when I am idle. I could live for months without performing any kind of labor, and at the expiration of that time I should feel fresh and vigorous enough to go right on in the same way for numerous more months. #Quote by Artemus Ward
Labor quotes by Louis O. Kelso
#192. Thus, the capital owner is not a parasite or a rentier but a worker - a capital worker. A distinction between labor work and capital work suggests the lines along which we could develop economic institutions capable of dealing with increasingly capital-intensive production, as our present institutions cannot. #Quote by Louis O. Kelso
Labor quotes by Kellan Lutz
#193. I'd rather do manual labor than sit behind a desk. And as my grandparents got older, I'd fly out there and help out around the farm. We'd tear barns down; we'd build barns. I'd rather be outside rolling hay or driving the tractors. #Quote by Kellan Lutz
Labor quotes by Henry Ford
#194. There should be no unemployment. There is large percentage of labor now which cannot make a living because wages are not high enough. That is industry's 2nd job. 1st job is to make good product. 2nd pay a good wage. #Quote by Henry Ford
Labor quotes by Elizabeth Alexander
#195. I have not yet learned to use our television DVR. One of the points of marriage is that you split labor. In the olden days that meant one hunted and one gathered; now it means one knows where the tea-towels are kept and the other knows how to program the DVR, for why should we both have to know? #Quote by Elizabeth Alexander
Labor quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#196. Success can be attained in any branch of labor. There's always room at the top in every pursuit. #Quote by Andrew Carnegie
Labor quotes by Anandamayi Ma
#197. Precious gems are profoundly buried in the earth and can only be extracted at the expense of great labor. #Quote by Anandamayi Ma
Labor quotes by Naomi Klein
#198. Still, we've gone soft since those days of wartime sacrifice, haven't we? Contemporary humans are too self-centered, too addicted to gratification to live without the full freedom to satisfy our every whim - or so our culture tells us every day. And yet the truth is that we continue to make collective sacrifices in the name of an abstract greater good all the time. We sacrifice our pensions, our hard-won labor rights, our arts and after-school programs. We send our kids to learn in ever more crowded classrooms, led by ever more harried teachers. We accept that we have to pay dramatically more for the destructive energy sources that power our transportation and our lives. We accept that bus and subway fares go up and up while service fails to improve or degenerates. We accept that a public university education should result in a debt that will take half a lifetime to pay off when such a thing was unheard of a generation ago. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Labor quotes by Peter Diamandis
#199. 3D printing will massively reduce the cost of certain products as the cost of labor is removed. #Quote by Peter Diamandis
Labor quotes by Beverly Johnson
#200. My husband was just OK looking. I was in labor and I said to him, 'What if she's ugly? You're ugly.' #Quote by Beverly Johnson
