A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on authors, books, inventions, labor, mind, and world

When the mind is braced by labor and invention, the page of whatever book we read becomes luminous with manifold allusion. Every sentence is doubly significant, and the sense of our author is as broad as the world.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on earth, food, glory, labor, nature, and trade

The glory of the farmer is that, in the division of labors, it is his part to create. All trade rests at last on his primitive activity. He stands close to Nature; he obtains from the earth the bread and the meat. The food which was not, he causes to be.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on action, beginning, citizenship, dignity, joy, labor, learning, limitations, necessity, observation, popularity, sacrifice, society, virtue, and work

I hear therefore with joy whatever is beginning to be said of the dignity and necessity of labor to every citizen. There is virtue yet in the hoe and the spade, for learned as well as for unlearned hands. And labor is everywhere welcome; always we are invited to work; only be this limitation observed, that a man shall not for the sake of wider activity sacrifice any opinion to the popular judgments and modes of action. An Oration delivered before the Phi Beta Kappa Society, at Cambridge, August 31, 1837.

When we count on chance in lieu of law and labor, we weaken our healthy attitudes toward work, our fellow men and our God.

A Quote by Pope Pius XII on hope, inspiration, labor, losing, men, nations, and work

If a worker is deprived of hope to acquire some personal property, what other natural stimulus can be offered him that will inspire him to hard work, labor, saving and sobriety today, when so many nations and men have lost everything and all they have left is their capacity for work?

A Quote by Pope Pius XII on determination, economics, existence, family, freedom, justice, labor, energy, politics, privacy, religion, and strength

Private property is a natural fruit of labor, a product of intense activity of man, acquired through his energetic determination to ensure and develop with his own strength his own existence and that of his family, and to create for himself and his own an existence of just freedom, not only economic, but also political, cultural and religious.

A Quote by Plato on art, birth, labor, men, mind, nobility, soul, thought, and women

Well, my art of midwifery is in most respects like theirs; but differs, in that I attend men and not women, and I look after their souls when they are in labor, and not after their bodies: and the triumph of my art is in thoroughly examining whether the thought which the mind of the young man brings forth is a false idol or a noble and true birth.
