Each week we like to share a few inspiring quotes from an entrepreneur who has found success. From leaders like Steve Jobs and Marissa Mayer to Tony Hsieh and Herb Kelleher, these leaders have a lot of experience to share when it comes to taking a small business and making it successful.
Today for Labor Day, we’re going to do something a little different. Instead of several quotes from a single leader, we’ve collected seven quotes from various leaders on the subject of working. Here are the Labor Day quotes we think you’ll find inspirational:
“There is no labor a person does that is undignified; if they do it right.”
“I believe in the dignity of labor, whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportunity to make a living.”
—John D. Rockefeller
“No great achievement is possible without persistent work.”
“Work is no disgrace; the disgrace is idleness.”
“Without labor nothing prospers.”
“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
—Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Take a rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.”
