Famous quotes containing the word sweat:

    O good old man, how well in thee appears
    The constant service of the antique world,
    When service sweat for duty, not for meed!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its labourers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
    Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890–1969)

    In short, I am convinced, both by faith and experience, that to maintain one’s self on this earth is not a hardship but a pastime, if we will live simply and wisely; as the pursuits of the simpler nations are still the sports of the more artificial. It is not necessary that a man should earn his living by the sweat of his brow, unless he sweats easier than I do.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
