A Quote by Jane Campion on good, evil, work, openness, and protection

What I have learned from my work up to now, is to try to be open, but also protect myself by not letting the good and the evil get too much importance.

A Quote by Paulo Coelho on education, universities, work, and right livelihood

Most of my parents' friends and most of my parents' friends' children also have degrees.  This doesn't mean that they've managed to find the kind of work they wanted.  Not at all; they went to university because someone, at a time when universities seemed important, said that in order to rise in the world, you had to have a degree.  And thus the world was deprived of some excellent gardeners, bakers, antique dealers, sculptors, and writers.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on imagination, elegance, grace, beauty, pleasure, love, and work

What liberates the imagination is the sense that work in its theory and practice holds aesthetic possibilities, that jobs can be elegantly conceived and gracefully done. This sense of beauty unlocks feelings of pleasure and love and breaks down the barrier between worker and work and commit to work not merely the "thinking" consciousness but the full resources of mind.

A Quote by Jean de La Bruyére on work, spirit, inspiration, thoughts, standard, judgement, master, and craftsman

When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge it by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

A Quote by Julia Cameron on purpose, play, work, money, meaning, and calling

What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do. When we do what we are meant to do, money comes to us, doors open for us, we feel useful, and the work we do feels like play to us.

A Quote by Julia Cameron on art, artist, greatness, and work

The need to be a great artist makes it hard to be an artist. The need to produce a great work of art makes it hard to produce any art at all.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on attention, focus, work, and mind

The mind which can totally and inanely forget its work and obligations is often also the mind which can, at the proper time, give them the fullest attention.
