Famous quotes containing the word employment:

    What exercise is to the body, employment is to the mind and morals.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    What most clearly characterizes true freedom and its true employment is its misemployment.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    The boatmen appeared to lead an easy and contented life, and we thought that we should prefer their employment ourselves to many professions which are much more sought after. They suggested how few circumstances are necessary to the well-being and serenity of man, how indifferent all employments are, and that any may seem noble and poetic to the eyes of men, if pursued with sufficient buoyancy and freedom.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
