Hard Work Quotations
I watched a small man with thick calluses on both hands work 15 and 16 hours a day. I saw him once literally bleed from the bottoms of his feet, a man who came here uneducated, alone, unable to speak the language, who taught me all I needed to know about faith and hard work by the simple eloquence of his example.
Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
W. Kelly Griffith
I know you've heard it a thousand times before, but it's true... hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don't love something, then don't do it.
I claim to be an average man of less than average ability. I have not the shadow of a doubt that any man or woman can achieve what I have, if he or she would make the same effort and cultivate the same hope and faith.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Skating takes up 70 percent of my time, school about 25 percent. Having fun and talking to my friends, 5 percent. It's hard. I envy other kids a lot of things, but I get a guilt trip when I'm not training.
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.
When heaven is about to confer a great responsibility on any man, it will exercise his mind with suffering, subject his sinews and bones to hard work, expose his body to hunger, put him to poverty, place obstacles in the paths of his deeds, so as to stimulate his mind, harden his nature, and improve wherever he is incompetent.

Try Your BestSubmitted by Amber
One day in school, I didn't do my best because I knew I could do better and my teacher knew it too. She told me I could do much better. The next day I tried a lot harder and it turned out to be great. The feeling of working hard and doing your best is really rewarding. Hard work really does pay off in the long run.

My mother's father (not "Grandpa," but "Boppa")is turning 81 in a month. He's been a farmer his entire life, and thinks nothing of lifting bales, laying irrigation pipe, or rolling under a machine to fix it. Rain or shine, he gets up early, has breakfast, and goes out to do the day's work. He's never thought of...
