Work – It Does a Body Good

January 14, 2013

We’ve noticed that lately our kids have been a little bit lazy, so last week we had a family meeting where we reinforced the importance of working hard and changed up the job chart.  I started off by handing out some quotes about work that I found.  These are some of my favorites:


“Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work”

-Thomas A. Edison


“The harder I work, the luckier I get.”

-Samuel Goldwyn


“Nothing will work unless you do.”

-Maya Angelou


“All life demands struggle.  Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life.  The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.”

-Pope Paul VI


“Every noble work is at first impossible.”

-Thomas Carlyle


“I never did a day’s work in my life.  It was all fun.”

-Thomas A. Edison


I’m thinking of making up a poster with these quotes and some of the others I found.  If I get a chance to do that, I’ll share with you so you can have it printed up too.  In the meantime, happy working!
