Famous quotes containing the word job:

    Oh, that I knew where I might find him, that I might come even to his dwelling! I would lay my case before him, and fill my mouth with arguments. I would learn what he would answer me, and understand what he would say to me. Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? No; but he would give heed to me. There an upright person could reason with him, and I should be acquitted forever by my judge.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 23:3-7.

    Job, of God.

    The director is simply the audience. So the terrible burden of the director is to take the place of that yawning vacuum, to be the audience and to select from what happens during the day which movement shall be a disaster and which a gala night. His job is to preside over accidents.
    Orson Welles (1915–1984)

    A mortal, born of woman, few of days and full of trouble, comes up like a flower and withers, flees like a shadow and does not last.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 14:1.
