I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.
John D. Rockefeller
All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Martin Luther King Jr.
A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.
Work isn't to make money; you work to justify life.
Undoubtedly, a man is to labor to better his condition, but first to better himself.
William Ellery Channing
No great achievement is possible without persistent work.
I would rather have a big burden and a strong back, than a weak back and a caddy to carry life's luggage.
God give me work, until my life shall end. And life, until my work is done.
Epitaph of Winifred Holtby
