QUOTES / LABOUR-DAY

Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work. Mark Twain

There is no substitute for hard work. Thomas Edison

Three times a year, there's Strategicon convention, and I go for the board games. It happens Presidents Day, Labor Day, and Memorial Day weekends. You go and take a look at the new board games and meet a couple of board game designers, and you can check out games you don't own from the library and then return them. Rich Sommer

When you have a country that can boast that more than 95 percent of its eligible workforce is employed and pumping money back into economy, that's exceptionally good news, especially as we prepare to observe Labor Day. J. D. Hayworth

The candidate out front on Labor Day has historically been the one who stayed ahead in November. Peter Jennings

The end of labour is to gain leisure. Aristotle

I believe that summer is our time, a time for the people, and that no politician should be allowed to speak to us during the summer. They can start talking again after Labor Day.

Nobody can think straight who does not work. Idleness wraps the mind. Henry Ford

I've got a really hard election. If you had a really hard election and it was after Labor Day would you go to North Carolina to a bunch of parties and glad-handing or would you stay home and work as hard as you know how to convince Missourians they should rehire you? Claire McCaskill

Labor Day is devoted to no man, living or dead, to no sect, race or nation. Samuel Gompers

Before the reward there must be labour. You plant before you harvest. You sow in tears before you reap joy. Ralph Ransom

Science has yet to isolate the Godiva Chocolate or Prada gene, but that doesn't mean your weakness for pricey swag isn't woven into your DNA. According to a new study of identical twins, it's less TV ads or Labor Day sales that make you buy the things you do than the tastes and temperaments that are already part of you at birth. Jeffrey Kluger

A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving. Albert Einstein

I remember, when I went away to college at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, my aunt sent me a book with the rules of being a Southern Belle. One of the rules was to never wear white after Labor Day. Fashion has a lot to do with confidence and making up your own rules. Kourtney Kardashian

Summer is not obligatory. We can start an infernally hard jigsaw puzzle in June with the knowledge that, if there are enough rainy days, we may just finish it by Labor Day, but if not, there's no harm, no penalty. We may have better things to do. Nancy Gibbs

I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it. Thomas Jefferson

God sells us all things at the price of labour. Leonardo da Vinci

All labour that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence. Martin Luther King Jr
