A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on prayer and work

Work is prayer. Work is also stink. Therefore stink is prayer.

A Quote by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi de Nagyrapolt on beginning, conscience, day, justice, life, money, past, research, scientists, society, and work

Basic research may seem very expensive. I am a well-paid scientist. My hourly wage is equal to that of a plumber, but sometimes my research remains barren of results for weeks, months or years and my conscience begins to bother me for wasting the taxpayer's money. But in reviewing my life's work, I have to think that the expense was not wasted. Basic research, to which we owe everything, is relatively very cheap when compared with other outlays of modern society. The other day I made a rough calculation which led me to the conclusion that if one were to add up all the money ever spent by man on basic research, one would find it to be just about equal to the money spent by the Pentagon this past year.

A Quote by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi de Nagyrapolt on direction, needs, scientists, and work

The real scientist . . . is ready to bear privation and, if need be, starvation rather than let anyone dictate to him which direction his work must take.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on play, success, and work

If A equal success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y and Z, with X being work, Y play, and Z keeping your mouth shut.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on beauty, community, duty, influence, joy, learning, opportunity, profit, spirit, study, and work

Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later work belongs.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on blessings, concern, fate, interest, labor, mankind, mind, order, problems, science, understanding, and work

It is not enough that you should understand about applied science in order that your work may increase man's blessings. Concern for the man himself and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavors; concern for the great unsolved problems of the organization of labor and the distribution of goods in order that the creations of our mind shall be a blessing and not a curse to mankind. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on aim, community, knowledge, life, motives, people, pleasure, schools, success, value, and work

One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on ambition, children, day, future, happiness, joy, life, play, spirit, and work

I feel that you are justified in looking into the future with true assurance, because you have a mode of living in which we find the joy of life and the joy of work harmoniously combined. Added to this is the spirit of ambition which pervades your very being, and seems to make the day's work like a happy child at play.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on god, goodness, universe, and work

Whatever there is of God and goodness in the universe, it must work itself out and express itself through us. We cannot stand aside and let God do it.
