Chose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
Those who work the hardest get the least.
The law of work does seem utterly unfair—but there it is, and nothing can change it: the higher the pay in enjoyment the worker gets out of it, the higher shall be his pay in cash, too.
Mark Twain Full quote at goodreads.com
The law of work seems unfair, but nothing can change it; the more enjoyment you get out of your work, the more money you will make.
Mark Twain (adapted)
People are always good company when they are doing what they really enjoy.
Every calling is great when greatly pursued.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of Creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.
The test of a vocation is the love of the drudgery it involves.
Logan Pearsall Smith
Set me a task in which I can put something of my very self, and it is a task no longer; it is joy; it is art.
I never worked a day in my life. It's not work when you love what you're doing.
To fulfill a dream, to be allowed to sweat over lonely labor, to be given a chance to create, is the meat and potatoes of life. The money is the gravy.
The best work never was and never will be done for money.
I never did a day's work in my life. It was all fun.
Thomas A. Edison
My father always told me, ''Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life.''
Clearly the most unfortunate people are those who must do the same thing over and over again, every minute, or perhaps twenty to the minute. They deserve the shortest hours and the highest pay.
John Kenneth Galbraith
Don't be condescending to unskilled labor. Try it for a half a day first.
When work is a pleasure, life is joy! When work is a duty, life is slavery.
Your life work is a statement of Who You Are. If it is not, then why are you doing it? Do you imagine that you have to? You don't have to do anything.
If "man who supports his family, at all costs, even his own happiness" is Who You Are, then love your work, because it is facilitating your creation of a living statement of Self.
If "woman who works at job she hates to meet responsibilities as she sees them" is Who You are, then love, love, love your job, for it totally supports your Self image, your Self concept.
Everyone can love everything the moment they understand what they are doing, and why. No one does anything he or she doesn't want to do.
God from Conversations with God (Book 1) through Neale Donald Walsch (adapted)
Nothing is work unless you'd rather be doing something else.
Making a success of the job at hand is the best step toward the kind you want.
Bernard M. Baruch
Get happiness out of your work or you may never know what happiness is.
A tremendous number of people in America work very hard at something that bores them. Even a rich man thinks he has to go down to the office everyday. Not because he likes it but because he can't think of anything else to do.
W. H. Auden
Deprived of meaningful work, men and women lose their reason for existence; they go stark, raving mad.
When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die.
One is not idle because one is absorbed. There is both visible and invisible labor. To contemplate is to toil, to think is to do. The crossed arms work, the clasped hands act. The eyes upturned to Heaven are an act of creation.
