Work Quotes

Work, it's something most of us have to do and will be a part of most of our adult life. Some hate it, some love it, some have learned to make the best of it. These few work quotes will hopefully get you to see work in a different perspective. Whether you see work as a physical place you need to go to or an activity, either way, it's an important aspect of life. If there is one thing that I've learned about this topic, it's to do what you can to find a line of work that you enjoy and even love. It'll make life a lot more interesting. I'm a bit short on good quotes about work so please add some if you know any down below. I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

"A company's character is known by the people it keeps."

~John Ruskin~

"Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy in what you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined."

~Johnny Carson~

"The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both."

~James A. Michener~

"There's just a slight difference in the spelling between Hard working and Hardly working but once either is followed can lead to results with greatest variations."

~Ritika Chopra~
