Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It's not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it's when you've had everything to do, and you've done it. ~Lord Acton
Thank God every morning when you get up, that you have something to do that day which must be done, whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle never know. ~Charles Kingsley
”When people honor each other, there is a trust established that leads to synergy, interdependence, and deep respect. Both parties make decisions and choices based on what is right, what is best, what is valued most highly.” --Blaine Lee
Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will themselves not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.
I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
My ability to concentrate and work toward that goal has been my greatest asset.
He has achieved success who has worked well, laughed often, and loved much.
People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.
Vincent T Lombardi
Our forbears worked hard this difficult land, and their reward was the freedom and independence of self-sufficiency.
