Hard Work Quotations
Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
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.
A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor.
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
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
All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.
Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.
The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you're willing to pay the price.
A leaf that is supposed to grow is full of wrinkles and creases before it develops; if one doesn't have the patience and wants the leaf to be as smooth as a willow leaf from the start, then there is a problem.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
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.
