Famous quotes containing the word occupation:

    It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.
    Jerome K. Jerome (1859–1927)

    Wars will remain while human nature remains. I believe in my soul in cooperation, in arbitration; but the soldier’s occupation we cannot say is gone until human nature is gone.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. It is the chief occupation of mankind.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
